Mimiensay looks like there is a lot of info there. I will read it, thank you :)00:00
topsubhekaldama,  that would be in the boot then00:00
Infinito-thanks gordonjcp nightrid3r I'll look into those00:00
uzairHey all, I was trying to install Windows AFTER installing Linux, but was having problems. Can anyone help out?00:00
gordonjcpBrack101: if you stop ntpd and say "sudo ntpdate nw-time.nist.gov" does it update your time?00:00
edi_99Hi all. I'm having trouble and I don't know why... When I try to i.e. record my guitar with Ardour I somethimes get this weird messages that Jack is used by another user and that I should check my audio settings? What do I have to do?00:00
Infinito-I want to run windows and then try running eclipse inside of windows :p00:00
Infinito-let's see how that goes :p00:00
ensayInfinito- -> you can run eclipse in linux00:00
nightrid3ruzair: firts windows and then linux is the best option00:00
gordonjcpInfinito-: why are you trying to run Eclipse in Windows?00:00
Infinito-yeah I know00:00
DesuUzair, Install Linux AFTER Windows.00:01
Infinito-well00:01
MimiSo it doesn't crash every time you do something?00:01
uzairunfortunately, i've been using linux for a while and backing up all files, clearing the drive then reinstalling is a real pain :(00:01
uzairis there no way otherwise?00:01
gordonjcpWhy are you running eclipse *at all* is a good enough question00:01
Infinito-I'm a flex developer, and the flex plugin for eclipse in windows has some desirable features00:01
Infinito-that linux plugin hasn't00:01
gordonjcpuzair: you could make a copy of your MBR, save it somewhere, then install Windows which will flatten the MBR with its own one00:02
nightrid3ruzair: windows will f*ckup your linux install anyway00:02
gordonjcpuzair: then write your Linux MBR back00:02
Infinito-and i don't wish to use windows for much else, anyhow..00:02
gordonjcpuzair: have you got space partitioned for Windows?00:02
step21hey ... on the wubi page it says still developers wanted for mubi, anyone know who might have an update on this?00:02
gordonjcpInfinito-: could you try running Eclipse in Wine?00:02
Brack101gordonjcp: no...I guess it doesn't00:02
uzairnot too worried about the mbr, i've already replaced that once. problem is that windows keeps thinking logical partitions are primaries and doesn't want to install otherwise00:02
step21many ppl run eclipse on windows ...00:02
step21should run o.k.00:02
gordonjcpBrack101: why not?00:02
SkyLeachInfinito-, you also have the option of running rdesktop to connect to a windows machine using the Windows RDP (remote desktop protocol) and/or VNC to connect to windows.  I do not know if the hypervise stuff will virtualize windows, someone else will have to answer that or you can google it if you like.  Gnerally, however, people that are doing this wish to run multiple operating systems at the same time.  I find that it is a horrid user experience fo00:02
SkyLeachr a desktop system as graphics and audio are extremely limited since you are forced to use a limited-feature virtual driver.00:02
Infinito-gordonjcp, yeah I thought of that too00:03
SkyLeachwoops00:03
SkyLeachthat was a bit long :-)00:03
MimiHey, Ubuntu is based on debian unstable, right?00:03
uzairis there anyway to hide those partitions from windows? or perhaps just format an empty partition to ntfs and then let windows installer go from there00:03
Brack101gordonjcp: can't resolve the host....I could have sworn that was a good one00:03
hekaldamatopsub: one sec, on the phone sorry00:03
gordonjcpBrack101: well there's your answer ;-)00:03
topsubhekaldama,  np00:03
Infinito-SkyLeach, no, that's not good for me.. I wanna have everything in my own machine :)00:03
Brack101gordonjcp: was I doing it right?  adding the entry to ntp.conf and restarting?00:03
sllhello00:04
gordonjcpInfinito-: I'm probably not best placed to advise on how to run Eclipse - I used it for an hour and then ditched it, and recently turned down a job because they used Eclipse00:04
gordonjcpBrack101: yup, with a good server name that should be fine00:04
step21uzair: hiding works with some commercial software at least, not sure if parted supports it00:04
SkyLeachInfinito-, consider looking into the transgaming setup of Wine.  It will run nearly any windows application including games with very good or even identical performance to windows for windows applications.00:04
step21gordonjcp: you found it that bad?00:04
Infinito-omg gordonjcp , I prefer eclipse over any IDE00:04
gordonjcpstep21: yes00:04
uzairstep21: what if i format through parted before i go to install anything? can we just "skip" the partitioning step w/ windows?00:05
step21at least they didn't use VS00:05
gordonjcpInfinito-: it uses Java, that's enough to put me off ;-)00:05
Infinito-SkyLeach, hmm will do00:05
uzairstep21: format empty space to ntfs00:05
slldid anybody connect to a edirol V4 (video-mixer) via s-video correctly? I get blink lines and bad resolution, but connected to tv directly work fine. It seems beacause the signal can be to weak. Any suggestions? Thanks00:05
step21uzair: no, you have to tell windows at least where to install00:05
SkyLeachWine by itself is ok, but slow and not well supported.  Transgaming, however, is very well supported and one can avoid the icky virtualization stuff (this is my honest opinion of user experience running virtualized desktop systems, others may differ).00:05
Infinito-java <300:05
SkyLeachand not too expensive either.00:05
uzairstep21: yeah, that's fine, but it shouldn't complain then should it since it has a ntfs partition to work with?00:05
step21gordonjcp: well, I have nothing against java anymore ... and some ppl coding C who can't memory manage should code more java ...00:06
likemindeadHello all. PCI Ethernet cards are pretty universally supported, right?00:06
uzairstep21: i just don't get why windows doesn't see the partitions as extended/logical00:06
uzairlousy windows.....only cuz i need dreamweaver :'(00:06
step21uzair: what does it say again?00:06
nightrid3rlikemindead: yes00:06
step21uzair: dreamweaver is epic fail btw ... just saying00:07
uzairstep21: says there are too many partitions and then won't format00:07
likemindeadI thought so. Unlike wireless cards... Thanks.00:07
step21how many?00:07
uzairepic fail? what do you mean00:07
frankS2uzair, learn how to use VIM and you never need dreamweaver again00:07
SkyLeachand when one considers the inclusion of the ntfs-3g drivers near complete support for NTFS now, one will find that all of the windows applicatoins and settings (from C:\Documents and Settings\username\AppData) and C:\Program Files can all be used by transgaming.00:07
hekaldamatopsub: so end goal is to get your 750gb out of your Ubuntu00:07
hekaldamainstallation00:07
Brack101gordonjcp:  How can I check the current time via CLI?00:07
hekaldamaso that you can have that storage space?00:07
uzairwell, dell puts a restore partition (1), Extended partition has: (a)ubuntu 8.04 (b)ubuntu 8.10 (c)home (d)swap00:08
stroyanBrack101:  date00:08
hekaldama"uninstall" as you were saying earlier00:08
topsubhekaldama, believe so, just remove ubuntu00:08
topsubhekaldama,  yes correct00:08
nite_johnboyIs the Ibex " Create a USB startup disk " under System/Administration a (What is known as a) < Persistent install > ? ?00:08
hekaldamaokay00:08
uzairtechnically, 2 primary partitions (one by dell, the is the extended), but windows sees all as primary00:08
topsubhekaldama,  i have misplaced my win xp pro cd00:08
hekaldamaone test I would do, is just boot with the windows drive in there00:08
tritiumnite_johnboy: only if you select the persistent home directory00:08
hekaldamasee if that works00:08
topsubk i will try that now00:09
hekaldamaif that does00:09
hekaldamaset boot priority in BIOS00:09
hekaldamaboot the xp hdd00:09
hekaldamathen in disk manager or whatever it is00:09

hekaldamais that a bot?00:09
lollasddoes the order in whcih I create partitions matter?00:09
step21uzair: then maybe all are primary and the parition utility fucked up? or some corruption? any way to check / fix part tables?00:10
hekaldamainteresting, okay, thanks ubottu00:10

topsubhekaldama,  with just my windows hard drive i get " GRUB loading, please wait... Error 21"00:10
step21at least I didn't get insta-banned00:10
topsubhekaldama,  so it seems i need to my windows xp cd00:10
step21reinstal grub00:10
nite_johnboytritium; can you give a little info on that to point me in the right direction - I tried this already with a 16gb usb and only had about 2.5 to gigs left - so must have missed somewhere along the way. thanks00:11
redvamp128command to tell the exact version of ubuntu installed00:11
gordonjcpnow can anyone suggest a way of running a -rt kernel with the NVidia binary drivers?00:11
hekaldamatopsub: seems that way, any other thoughts from others is appreciated00:11
jussi01!version | redvamp12800:11
ubotturedvamp128: To find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »00:11
hekaldamabut I would say, you will need it00:11
uzairstep21: i did that once already with a utility called testdisk00:11

_Vi_How long does it take to dd copy a 40gig hdd anyone know? There's only Xubuntu on it with like maybe 2-3 gigs of stuff ive added00:11

fosco_redvamp128: is it a question?00:12
hekaldamatopsub: hope that helps, I am afk for now00:12

gordonjcpuzair: *no-one* needs Dreamweaver00:12
uzairlol00:12
uzairany alternatives (aside from notepad like utils)?00:13
step21uzair: back up everything, next time make sure your partition utility works nicer?00:13
redvamp128I need to help this guy figure out if he is running 32bit Intrepid or 64bit00:13
step21uzair: what do you want to do with DW?00:13
uzairtrue enough, i guess i'll have to do it the ol fashion way......STUPID MICROSOFT!00:13
Mimiuzair, alternatives in Ubuntu? Does it have to be WYSIWYG?00:13
nightrid3rredvamp128: uname -a00:13
uzairmakes things faster00:13
Cpudan80uzair: The only thing is NVU00:13
uzairfor web00:14
Cpudan80!info NVU | uzair00:14
ubottuPackage NVU does not exist in intrepid00:14
step21uzair: srsly?00:14
Cpudan80:-(00:14
gordonjcpuzair: no-one doing serious web design uses dreamweaver00:14
_Vi_NVU is outdated, now its Kompozer00:14
Cpudan80uzair: well it might not be called NVU anymore00:14
step21dreamweaver will make your code ugly and by definition slower ...00:14
MimiDreamweaver works in wine00:14
uzairi tried komposer00:14
uzairno luck with that -- kept crashing :(00:14
Mimihelp don't preach?!?!00:14
uzairwas about to try nvu, never heard of srsly00:14
step21well, we can't help him reinstall his windows00:14
_Vi_yeah Kompozer has a tenedency to crash if you open a menu up or sneeze the wrong way :/00:14
uzairrofl _Vi_00:15
gordonjcpuzair: some of the best sites I've ever seen have been done in Textmate ;-)00:15
uzairit's so true00:15
Cpudan80uzair: it's older kompozer apparently00:15
Mimiuzair, oh no... that stinks! Well, http://kompozer.net/screenshots.php is not too bad, but there's really not many wysiwyg apps sadly :(00:15
uzairCpudan80, which one?00:15
frankS2uzair, you should learn vim ;)00:15
_Vi_GOOD news!! though,,, kompozer works just fine in WINE :)00:15
Cpudan80uzair: nvu = outdated kompozer00:15
Mimigordonjcp, that's because all the hipsters are using it :P grrr RoR!00:15
frankS2if adobe ported theyre products to linux00:16
frankS2that would really be something00:16
gordonjcpuzair: done in gedit on Ubuntu -> http://www.bioreliance.com/00:16
uzairproblem is i'm not a hardcore web guy -- more into networking/messing around with os's. having to help out someone with web stuff and messing around with css files in text utils is really tiresome and painstaking00:16
gordonjcpuzair: done in Dreamweaver -> http://www.bioreliance.com/about_us_intro.html00:16
MimiCS4 works! Photoshop CS4 works great for me00:16
_Vi_franki^, and if they make Adobe opensource that would even be better :)00:16

Mimipurvesh,  if that's what you want, yes, I have done it before00:19
uzairreally interesting way to run win apps on linux00:19
Mimipurvesh, this guide is pretty good: http://beconfused.com/2008/02/12/how-to-make-windows-vista-boot-first-using-grub-in-ubuntu/00:19
yabukI can't install ubuntu on a laptop with a sata hd,  changed the options of bios in many ways, but ubuntu doesn't start, does anyone know how to fix it? (I've instaled ubuntu for free in my city, but many laptops have this problems). I already tried ubuntu alternate00:20
BllasaeWhen I go to "Preferences"- "Main Menu", when I select the folders to put on the main menu, the checkmarks always uncheck themselves00:20
Mimiuzair,  yup, I run Windows in Virtual Box , and WOW is it fast?! :)00:20
step21bye guys, need sleep00:20
purveshMimi:not i want 2 both linux windows but right now only linux is booting00:20
Mimignight00:20
uzairnot sure00:20
jribyabuk: what exactly happens?  Did you run "check the cd for defects" from the cd's boot menu?00:20
ensayyabuk -> once you installed and rebooted, it does not boot up?00:21
Jimi__Hendrixanyone?00:21
mykehey guys i have a question how do i extract a .tar.gz to a certain directory ? like when its hidden for instance it says extract it to .cairo-dock/themes in my home folder00:21
uzairMimi: that way seems to be running as a service, i guess it'd be faster than running a full fledge gui00:21
jribmyke: -C, see « man tar »00:21
Mimiuzair, o_o Nice! *reads the rest now*00:21
Jack_Sparrowmyke, It may not answer your question , but why are you not using cairo dock from our repos00:22
mykeis that the command of are you telling me to look at something called man tar00:22
inkvizitor68slhi all00:22
uzairMimi: i was trying to get it to run on a server and see if clients can use the windows stuff -- but that's all beyond me xD00:22
ensaymyke -> man tar00:22
mykejack_sparrow im trying to install a theme for it , that makes it look right on my netbook "msi wind"00:22
inkvizitor68slare anyone know stable jabber->icq transports ?00:22
jribmyke: -C is the switch you want to use.  « man tar » has the details00:22
Jack_Sparrowmyke, Good enough answer for me00:22
arnaldocaposup people00:23
MattJinkvizitor68sl: Take a look at http://jabberes.org/servers/00:23
uzairMimi: if you know this stuff well, perhaps you can help me out w/ my lil problem on UF (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=6593545&postcount=5)00:23
mykeok so in terminal i would type "sudo ###.tar.gz -c man tar00:23
myke\?00:23
inkvizitor68slMattJ: many transports died because AOL...hm.. <censored>00:23
_Vi_no myke 'man tar'00:23
_Vi_no quotes00:23
inkvizitor68slall transports at .ru zone00:24
avantcorehmm so I'm trying to set up an external monitor to work with my laptop using fglrx00:24
yabukI've checked cd for defects, the live cd show its firt menu (start ubuntu...; install ubuntu...; check cd...), but it doesn't work after I use "install ubuntu" or "teste ubuntu"00:24
avantcoreI used the command aticonfig --initial=dual-head --dtop=horizontal00:24
MattJinkvizitor68sl: Then I'm sorry I have no idea (haven't used ICQ for a long time)00:24
uzairlol "ahmuk"00:24
mykei just type man tar in terminal? lol sorry i know i seem retarded but im primarily a osx user and wanted to try something different .. i somewhat get linux commands lol00:24
avantcoreand that kinda works, I get the two screens at the correct resolutions, but gnome doesn't seem to start properly, no toolbars and right clicking on the desktop does nothing00:24
avantcoredoes anybody know why that would be?00:24
jribyabuk: what does "doesn't work" mean?  Don't use that phrase.  Instead, explain what happens00:25
Mimiah uzair my knowledge is REALLY basic. Specially when it comes to "server" stuff00:25
inkvizitor68sland second questions.... where there are bemused files now?00:25
yabukensay: since the live and alternate cd doesn't work, I can't install00:25
jribmyke: yes, « man tar » shows you the manual.  I've already told you the switch you want to use is -C00:25
Jack_Sparrowyabuk, If you try ctrl-alt-F2 after it seems to lock up and the drive stops do you get a terminal windoe00:25
uzairoops, just msg'd00:25
yabukI've found this problem in action and positivo laptops00:25

ActionParsnip!sound | afroken01:25
ubottuafroken: If you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP301:25
booksbuggymindframe: you can try to use pulse audio01:25
booksbuggyand see if the configuration on mine works on yours01:25
ActionParsnipafroken: if you have zero sound, run lspci to identify your sound card, you can then websearch from there01:26
jp_sfw33d5: top -b -n 1 > foo.txt01:26
afrokenActionParsnip, thank you ! just what i needed! however i dont have a volume control (xfce) -is there another way to do it?01:26

ActionParsnipConstantineXVI: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg01:33
jp_sfnite_johnboy: you could cat your Cdrom into an .iso01:33
booksbuggyonthefence928, i think this might work:http://theos.in/news/ubuntu-linux-shutdown-the-x-server/01:33
nightrid3rmatisse: depends on the webmail01:33
ActionParsnipafroken: if you boot to the newest kernel and read through: dmesg | less01:34
ActionParsnipafroken: it may give some clues01:34
matissenightrid3r: is IMAP essential?01:34
jp_sfnite_johnboy: the most common command would dd if=/dev/cdrom of=foo.iso01:34
booksbuggyonthefence928, i have never tried to shutdown xserver01:34
ActionParsnipConstantineXVI: run that comand then restart x (ctrl + alt + backspace)01:34
nightrid3rmatisse: no if your webmail also supports pop3 it will work01:34
afrokenActionParsnip, the new kernel boots to kernel panic i get no access to terminal, something like VFS can't mount blocks or something...01:34
Cpudan80bebin: open your mixer settings01:35
Cpudan80bebin: right click the speaker icon near the clock open vol control01:35
afrokenActionParsnip, would you recommend focusing on the new kernel of ignoring it and just getting the sound working?01:35
ActionParsnipafroken: then i'd get an fsck in there, boot to root console from recovery mode and check them out01:35

jp_sfw33d5, ifconfig01:36
afrokenActionParsnip, fsck from recovery?01:36
ActionParsnipafroken: up to you entirely, if you were happy with the old kernel, use it, if you think the new one will improve your system , do that01:36
w33d5jp: thanks01:36
jp_sf!ifconfig | ubottu01:36
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ifconfig01:36
afrokenActionParsnip, was happy with the old one...01:36
nightrid3rmatisse: ask your mail provider01:36
Cpudan80bebin: I wouldnt go up to 100% on the PCM mixer, it might distort the sound -- prob 80%01:36
* jp_sf 0-0 01:36
ActionParsnipafroken: show gub screen, select recovery mode for your desired kernel then choose root console01:36
afrokenActionParsnip, ok, then fsck?01:36
ActionParsnipafroken: you will then have to umount the partitions and you can then fsck them01:36
matissenightrid3r: good answer :D01:37
ActionParsnipfsck /dev/partition name01:37
ActionParsnipafroken: sudo fdisk -l will show you all partitions01:37
bebinCpudan80: yes i did it but no effect01:37

afrokenActionParsnip, btw- how will fsck help my sound problem?01:37

SemidiosCpudan80, it was never in fstab.  HAL automounts the drive in Ubuntu.  I had that same problem.  I wanted my drive to always be mounted and not with the name Ubuntu gave it.  I ended up adding it to fstab to fix it.02:05

rahdukeim hoping someone can help me, i installed ubuntu on my buddies laptop because it rules and he kept destroying windows with malware and such. I figured he couldn't absolutely destroy ubutnu without some hard work. Its been about 6 months and he's having problems, dropped the laptop off to me today and its all messed up.... there are tons of processes running i don't recognize (getty 4x kthreadd, watchdog/0 and many more) and i02:06

grkblood13hey guys, i didnt want to ask this in the mysql chat in here of being ridiculed but after doing a tutorial on installing a local web server which had me install mysql and phpmyadmin i must ask. not know anything about what i was doing i looked into some tutorials of what exactly mysql is. after doing some ive soem to the conclusion that mysql is just a hard to manuever spreadsheet. so my question is, is mysql just a hard02:21
grkblood13to maneuver spreadsheet or is there more to it? and why is have it necessary for a local web server and not just apache by itself?02:21

unop  DevilSShadoW, sure. if you resize that volume and create a new one02:51
DevilSShadoWwell i'll do anything as long as i can have a drive  that win xp will recognize02:51
redvamp128unused_bagels:  no-- this was in reference to girao asking about making it faster02:51
* grendal_prime uses systemrescuecd all the time /me loves the qt_parted app on there.02:51
galexcdwell if you do that you are limited to the ammount of data that is on the volume02:51

=== ubuntu is now known as bookmark
bookmarki am REALLY wondering, how is it possible for to change your passwd as sudo?02:56
bookmarki mean i do it02:56
bookmarkit works, but what is the logic here?02:56
npopesudo passwd02:56
bookmarkyes i know02:56
redvamp128DevilSShadoW:  though to note once you reboot to ubuntu-- it will send it into a device check - e2fsk cycle upon reboot02:56
bookmarkuh... does anyone see a violation in that?02:57
bookmarkbesides me02:57
bookmarkyou can change it as many times as you like02:57
npopebookmark: that changes roots password not yours02:57
bookmarki'm using the live ubuntu cd02:57
bookmarkyes i knows02:57
bookmarkis this not a bad thing? that a standard user can do this?02:57
npopei do not see a problem with that02:57
bookmarkor is ubuntu an admin user?02:57
npopeits a live cd02:57
bookmarksuper user02:57
bookmarkok so is it only set up like that on a live cd?02:57
StevenTylerhelp, Ubuntu keeps booting into initramfs02:57
npopeyes02:58
redvamp128DevilSShadoW:  did you catch that? inbetween the popins?02:58
bookmarkah...02:58
bookmarkwhat setting is that?02:58
root______DevilSShadoW if you don't mind having the filesystem within a file on another filesystem,  then the answer to your question "is it possable..."  yes it is possable to make an fat32 filesystem within linux if all the disk space was allocated to the root fs.   example: dd if=/dev/zero of=my_new_vfat_filesystem bs=4096 count=1024 ;mkfs.vfat my_new_vfat_filesystem ;mount -o loop my_new_vfat_filesystem /mnt02:58
bookmarkif you know02:58
StevenTylerlast time I had to reinstall Ubuntu for that problem02:58
bookmarki mean its basically allow anyone to be root02:58
npopewhat setting is what?02:58
StevenTylerI an't keep reinstalling it again and again and again02:58
npopeon the live cd02:58
bookmarkum....02:58
unused_bagelsdoes anyone here know anything about Network Manager and/or torrenting?02:59

bookmarkhow do i make my live cd that way02:59
npopecorrect02:59
bookmarkif i want to02:59
root______DevilSShadoW hope that didn't turncate.  it was longet than i thought02:59
npopenot run a live cd02:59
DevilSShadoWsounds like my simple mind only comprehends reinstall02:59
bookmarkhehe02:59
npopedelete the ubuntu user02:59
miranda_psiunused_bagels: ask away and if people know the answer they will probably answer...02:59
unused_bagelsredvamp128:  lol no. NM isn't recognizing my internet connection.  I have my ports forwarded and a static IP, and still only torrent at 3-11kbps02:59
npopebut then it will come back if you reboot02:59
unused_bagelsack sorry02:59
DevilSShadoWdont get me wrong it's not extremely irgent for me to have a fat32 partition03:00
unused_bagelssorry redvamp12803:00
unused_bagelswell, does anyone know how I can fix my NM problem and reclaim my torrenting bandwidth?03:00
DevilSShadoWi just think its a waste for 160gb for linux03:00
lifenova1DevilSShadoW: did your problem get solved? I was going to recommend you get a program in windows that can read an ext3 partition rather than converting to fat32.03:00
unused_bagelsdangit03:00
unused_bagelsok miranda_psi03:00
redvamp128DevilSShadoW:  try this instead-- download  a linux live cd like puppy linux (which already has G-parted)03:00

Leefmcjp_sf: The answer would be.. no?03:10
Leefmcroot______: Yea, but generally its considered that your messaging the channel, and not "every user in the channel". Imo, if you message a user, you private message them, if you message a channel, you message a channel, not each user in it.03:11
Leefmcbit ot anyway :o03:11
unused_bagelsmiranda_psi: did you catch my last post?03:11

hide1713root______: or :!du Joe03:19
miranda_psiunused_bagels: what error do you get?03:19

gotank233it can be used to run the iso?03:40
grendal_primeim on  a t1 here ...if the repos are jamed, or connections are bad on any part of the download you are going to get slow speed.  You need to read up on apt and how it works.03:40
arrenlex1gotank233: I think there's a special distribution for liveusb installation.03:40
[TK]D-Fenderkinda general newb question : About to use K3B for the first time and want to be sure ont he nature of the disc formats.  I'm burning a data DVD which in Windows IIRC was being set as Joliet, but I never knew the finer spc points, only knowing it was the "norm".  I see this as an  option with some sane looking defaults, but its listed like "custom".  The defaul is a very generic "UNIX/LINX +...03:40
[TK]D-Fender...Windows".  What does this really imply and which format should I pick for maximum compatibility?03:40
Claire2009xbuntu? does that affect running of my computer if i enable it?03:40
grendal_primeAlso..if you have a fat download, like hundreds of megs of updates it will take a wile to get all that.03:40

FishsceneI have created a directory called, "/vmfiles/vm" However, if I go into the vmfiles directory and run "ls" it does not display the vm directory. But I can still navigate to /vmfiles/vm. Any ideas why vm does not show up in ls?03:41

miranda_psidoes anyone have any idea why the compiz 3D cube would suddenly become very slow and buggy? (all I did was reboot - no installation of new programs / updates etc.)03:41
Flusher_gotank233 > you download ubuntu 8.10 online and then you burn a CD image with nero for exemple.. Then you boot it on your xp and you click on the second choice ;)03:41
Claire2009arrenlex1 - so i lose my login screens, any software??03:41
root______arrenlex1 i would suggest full kubuntu or ubuntu   no need to lighten up for that hardware.03:41
Claire2009arrenlex1 - or will everything still run normally?03:41
arrenlex1Claire2009: You won't lose your software. You will lose your desktop preferences, because it's a different desktop environment.03:41
Claire2009arrelenx1 - i see.03:41
arrenlex1Claire2009: But of course, you can always log out of xfce and log back into gnome and have everything03:41
Claire2009oh.03:42
root______Claire2009 any hardy release should be fine on those specs     ubuntu kubuntu xubuntu ...   take your pick.03:42

FishsceneSo no one has any idea why the "ls" command fails to execute properly? It works fine in all directories except the one I created.03:42
_Vi_Claire2009: if you find later that xubuntu is even too slow there's always fluxbox, Icewm, jwm... and what not.03:43
arrenlex1Fishscene: Sorry, I missed the problem -- what does it say?03:43
root______Fishscene no read permission on the dir ?03:43
Claire2009question - can you just replace a dvd-rom drive, and have it instantly recognized by ubuntu 8.04??03:43
Claire2009(final question of night)_03:43
Fishscenearrenlex1, it doesn't say anything. I execute the command and it returns me to the prompt. No output03:43
grendal_primeunless it is unsupported hardware(not likely on that type of device) udev should find it03:43
Fishsceneroot____, I thought if I created the directory using sudo, that I automatically had read permissions. how would I check the permissions?03:44
arrenlex1Fishscene: Is there anything in the dir?03:44
grendal_primethat was for Claire200903:44
Fishscenearrenlex1, just a subdirectory03:44
Claire2009grendal_prime - thanks.03:44
grendal_primenp03:44
FishsceneHere's the details: I have created a directory called, "/vmfiles/vm" However, if I go into the vmfiles directory and run "ls" it does not display the vm directory. But I can still navigate to /vmfiles/vm. Any ideas why vm does not show up in ls?03:44
[TK]D-FenderAny quick input on my K3B DVD format question?03:44

Claire2009well, thanks for all the info all, i'm off03:44

Cpudan80xork: lol old app03:45
xorkCpudan80, yes but a good one :)03:46
Cpudan80xork: try alsa instead of pulse --- settings --> prefs --> sound03:46
xorkCpudan80, I currently have those settings set to ALSA03:46
syerewhat is the advantage of alsa?03:46
Cpudan80ALSA has stood the test of time...03:46
Cpudan80xork: How did you get wolfenstein in linux anyway?03:46
xorkCpudan80, there's a native linux client, and it's free03:47

mstrjay4Need help with Java.  Online java test still reports 1.5.0, even though ver 6 is installed.03:53
PastorBonesyou need an AVI2DVD converter to do it right03:53
ChrisGibbsglick: To answer your original question 32bit application can work. It may require installing 32bit libraries and possibly a little playing around.03:53
donkey_pastor you talking to me?03:53
PastorBonesdonkey_, yes, try this site http://forum.videohelp.com/03:53
miranda_psimstrjay4: that would probably be because you have multiple versions installed and you have the 1.5 plugin set up for your browser03:53
Youngblooddonkey_: Use DeVeDe to make iso, and use k3b or whatever you like to burn to disc03:54
mstrjay4how do i set this up properly Miranda?03:54
donkey_i have to make it into an Image?03:54
tempnamee:l03:55
donkey_youngblood i have to make it into an image?03:55
geniidonkey_: There's an old but still relevent article on the subject here if you are interested in the procedure http://www.linux.com/articles/5370203:55
Youngblooddonkey_: That's how I've had to do it03:55
miranda_psimstrjay4: for firefox the universal plugin directory (by default) is: /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins - delete the java plugin link from there and create a new link to the java plugin03:56
PastorBonesdonkey_, if you just burn the avi it won't play on a DVD player, you need to convert it to a DVD format, go to that site and do some reading, there are even program links in the forum posts03:56
donkey_kk thanks03:56
mstrjay4cool thanks.03:57

n8tuserbrunner-> are you using dhcp?04:47

genii_anu: If you can't resize the partition (eg: if thats all the space there is on the hd that is available to use)   then add a second hd. Then you can copy over everything in a problemmatic directory on the full drive to it, then mount it under that same directory04:51

glickhey im trying to run live cd on a dual core AMD but after the ubuntu load bar comes on, it just seems to hang at a black screen whith a white blinking cursor at the top left05:28
_anugenii : why does it matter ?05:28
genii_anu: Swap is important because when system runs out of actual memory it uses the swap as sort of temporary extra memory. But this is likely not directly related to your issue.05:28
vnixIs there any other choices beside using Pidgin(MSN Messenger)05:29
_anugenii : do you want me to remove it to set out more space ?05:29
garityis there any other partition tool besides sucky gparted?05:29
genii_anu: All your results so far do not indicate that a lack of space or memory is likely to blame. Also, no, do not remove your swap partition.05:30

RegressLessAdrian2MiL8: I just know my people need to hear my voice :D06:11
_anugenii : are you there ?06:11
genii_anu: No apologies needed. Your problem is difficult, as even the bug report shows, since there is currently no solution offered there.06:11
dtanneri have a 64 bit amd cpu and ubuntu-studio-intrepid is giving me an error that ai do not have a 64 bit cpu , it is stoppping the install saying a need a 32bit kernel , any ideas ?06:11

Adrian2MiL8<RegressLess> maybe you have only the mic disable on the alsa mixer06:12
Adrian2MiL8<RegressLess> you check  this ??06:13
genii_anu: I am suspecting this:    An update was happening and was interrupted. Some files got corrupted.        Did you halt somehow an update, or did the machine restart unexpectedly, etc?06:13
Fevrinlinux_guy: awww...well, it's not much that you're missing.06:13
Steelflintlinux_guy, Does your touchpad have a scroll line on the right edge of it, you could test that, on mine, if I slide my finger down the right edge of the touchpad it scrolls.06:13
genii_anu: (just before this all began)06:13
linux_guyvoice control for what06:13
linux_guyoh yeah steel hang on06:13

linux_guywhen compiz effects are enabled, video is shaky06:15
linux_guyis it just a bug?06:15
Gtweak674i dunno.. it';s annoying though always having to turn off the effects to watch video06:16
nickrudglick, don't do it enough to recite the interactive grub method, but iirc   press e at the grub menu, remove quiet splash from the kernel line, then b to boot. You can edit the menu.lst to make it permanent06:16

c_webkitnickrud:  what should i do in BIOS06:21
c_webkitit wont give me the version no06:21
genii_anu: Yes, I saw. This is from the first command where we told it to remove all in /var/cache/apt/archives         It removed all the files but was unable to remove the directory. This is fine and normal error and not to worry over.06:21
kevipapoeveryone busy right now, i guess06:21

nickrudc_webkit, different causes of boot errors at different points in the boot. I need to know more to help you06:22
glickis that usualy a sign of a bad cd06:22
RegressLesskevipapo: reask your question please06:22
nickrudglick, could be. Did you run the self test on the boot menu?06:22
kevipaposure, im having issues installing the nvidia drivers06:22
kevipapowhen i try to activate them, a download windows opens for a split second, then closes06:22

genii_anu:   rm            can remove files easily but not subdirectories, that is all06:23
c_webkitnickrud: Ok as far as Ubuntu installation is concerned06:23
RegressLesskevipapo: Are you trying to download and install the drivers manually?06:23
linux_guyWhat do you do when Ubuntu is taking over what used to be sleep in your life?06:23
nickrudglick, most likely a bad burn then. did you run the md5sum on the downloaded iso?06:23
c_webkitnickrud: everything runs well06:23

vinceQuestion:  Is there an easy way to set Ubuntu's default soundcard to a different card?  When I go to System -> Preferences -> Sound I see a huge list of devices and i'm not sure which one is my onboard card06:24
genii_anu: Ok, this again is not a concern. Proceed to last step06:24
nickrudglick, google md5sum.exe . You can download and run that from a command prompt06:24
c_webkitnickrud: then after the loading screen goes.. i should get the desktop with the username and password.. tht screen does not come.. only blank with a pointer06:25
RegressLesskevipapo: is there drivers listed there? I have an 8800 and it shows me two options (one of which is recommended)06:25
c_webkitie. my mouse cursor06:25
_anugenii : really ? ok06:25
* linux_guy yawns and goes to bed06:25

c_webkityes06:25
* linux_guy says gnight!06:25
kevipapoRegressLess, i think we see the same thing.  One is 173, the other 177 (thats the recommended one06:25
c_webkit'after tht nothing works so have to reboot06:25
nickruddoes the pointer move?06:25

nickrudc_webkit, I hope you have two machines, one for talking and one for troubleshooting :)06:26

kevipapoyes, i tried activating it, and thats when the prblem occurs, and the window for downloading it pops open for a split second and dissappears06:26
_anugenii : OK ^^ thank you very much very06:26
c_webkitwell.. i am not sure.. about the cursor.. but the blank screen is for sure..06:26
kevipapoalso, sory if i make typing mistakes, i recently bought this computer (two days ago) so im getting used to the keyboard06:26
c_webkiti think the cursor does not move06:26
c_webkitor the cursor does not come only06:27
c_webkitcould be anything06:27
c_webkitI got now win98 winxp and installing Ubuntu scared if it does not work.. i would lose info in the booting cause Ubuntu becomes the MSR06:27
RegressLesskevipapo: no prob.  Ok, if you select the 177, there a button at the bottom that says "This driver is activated and currently in use." is that gray or green?06:27
nickrudc_webkit, from what you've said so far it could be anything for sure. I would suggest you start by running the disk check on the cd's boot menu. Make sure there wasn't some corruption somewhere06:28
c_webkiti did tht06:28
c_webkiti checked for errors06:28

RegressLesskevipapo: If you haven't seen, search keywords "eee" and "multitouch".  'Tis pretty cool also. I understand the gaming. I play a bit, but in my old age, it has been pushed to the side. lol, I'm 28 and ready for retirement.06:45
genii_anu: My current thinking is we need to clear or remove the list of packages which are only partially installed/configured so that control of the dpkg can be regained. But how to approach this is too much for me right now.06:45
RegressLesskevipapo:  Correction: If you haven't seen, search videos for keywords "eee" and "multitouch" on youtube06:46

c_webkitnickrud: i didnt get the solution06:52
c_webkity do i get a blank screen06:52
zaapiel!ask full disk encryption06:52
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)06:52
Flannelvinay: Ubuntu uses sudo instead, your first user is a member of the admin group and has the ability to use sudo.06:52
nickrudc_webkit, no idea of the chipset of your video? Not much I can do, without knowing that06:52
c_webkitok06:52

vinayArvind thanks for the reply. It did not prompt for entering password for root account during installation.06:53

paul68ActionParsnip: yes it does06:54
genii_anu: OK. Keep an eye on the bug report mentioned earlier. A solution may yet appear there06:54
Flannelvinay: Again, Ubuntu doesn't use the root account, so it won't ask for a password for one.06:54

nickrudc_webkit, that tells me all I need about the hardware, thanks. Looking for bug reports06:55
askin007does anybody use Promise SX 6000 raid controller?06:55
arvind_khadrivince which sound card?06:55
Flannelvinay: Right.  You use sudo instead.  `sudo command` runs command as root.06:55
paul68ActionParsnip: even 4 times06:56
vinayFlannel, thanks!06:56
vinceI have one sound card working.  If I run cat /proc/asound/modules it shows both but its using the wrong card as the default06:56

vinceI have an onboard Intel Realteck card and an Add On Soundblaster Live!06:56
ActionParsnippaul68: try killing them off and starting it with alt+f2 or whatever you gnome guys use to launch apps06:56
arvind_khadrivince, so you want to use soundblaster?06:57
vinceThe Intel card should be the primay, I use the soundblaster for my headset for things like skype and Vent however everything is defaulting to the soundblaster by default06:57

ActionParsnippaul68: killall conky06:58
arvind_khadrivince, oh ok... did you check the community documentation ?06:58
vincearbinf_khadri : No the soundblaster is the secondary.  Onboard Intel should be the primary06:58
ActionParsnipkevin__: have you enabled the wacom lines in xorg.conf?06:58
paul68ActionParsnip: done and started conky again06:58
arvind_khadrivince, oh ok... did you check the community documentation ?06:58
arvind_khadrivince, and ya which Ubuntu??06:59
vincearvind_khandri: I have searched.  Mos things say to use the asoundconf-gtk to change the default sound card or to go to System -> Preferences -> Sound to manually set the device.  I have done so and it still uses the soundblaster06:59
GeneralCan anyone help me with my video card troubles?06:59

nickrudc_webkit, np. you can find me here too often :) If you can, have a machine you can talk on while you run the non-functioning one07:04
vincearvind_khadri: But when I activate it won't it mess up the main imput?  I need them to be distinct and separate.  I want only what I specifically tell to use the sound blaster to use it.  Everything else SHOULD default to the Intel Realtek Card.  I can't just use one at a time otherise I might as well just be switching Jacks.07:04
c_webkitnah thts not possible..07:04
ActionParsnipbluefox83: use the same pass as your login and you should be ok. I've noticed this is the case but i could be wrong07:04

Talked to the guys over at #winehq, and they say it's a video card problem. Do I need a driver/deb p07:04

c_webkiti will talk to you via office07:04
talntidGeneral: Disable your special effects and try again. Let us know if that is what is causing it.07:05

ActionParsnipGeneral: have you installed video drivers?07:05

=== TwoD_ is now known as TwoD
arvind_khadrivince, just activate/deactivate and check out...07:06

ActionParsnipGeneral: lspci will show all your hardware, grep just filters the output07:09
mountxGeneral, you should go to System >> Administration >> Hardware Drivers and let us know what you see there07:09

ActionParsnipzaapiel: theres a few distros customised so it all works outta the box10:17
jigpbazhang even in k-menu there is no vmware I con10:17
zaapieln order to get those things working, you would need to install a custom kernel and make several changes to the configuration. Eeebuntu has all of those changes made by default. It works out of the box.10:17
bazhangjigp, its virtualbox not vmware10:17

mohadibas is, i have to restart x and use a config that only starts one monitor10:22
bazhangjigp, start up the app after first inserting xp disk into cd/dvd drive10:22

oCean_alex_sleiborg: their should be a switch on laptop to switch wireless on/off. Also a combination of <Fn> key and (for example) <F2> key will enable wireless device11:08

ubottuAPTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers11:08
kavithathank you drash11:08
michaelyaohmm...., is the wireless tool linksys or something?11:08
kavitham installing it right now11:09
michaelyaosometimes it's the wireless router itself thats buggy, and often reconnects/kills the connection11:09
alex_sleiborgoCean: I've tried that, i doesn't seems to be any way to activate it that way11:09
drashkavitha: you're welcome11:09

oCean_alex_sleiborg: You might want to check (I had) a file called 'wlan' in subdirectory of /sys/devices/platform11:10
drashkavitha: one note, if you need to change system mime-types, assogiate like any other GUI app will need to be started via "gksu", that bit me a few times ;)11:10
alex_sleiborgmichaelyou. Zyxel, Cisco, Linksys. Depends on where i am. But it's not a router problems i'm pretty sure of that11:11

rod_Hi Bitches :D11:11
bazhangrod_, watch the language11:11
oCean_alex_sleiborg: I'm on asus laptop, for me that file was /sys/devices/platform/asus-laptop/wlan. When wireless is enabled, it should read "1" when you do a "cat" of that file.11:11
