nickrud_Heliodor, that's why you reinstall ubuntu-desktop, to make sure you don't lose anything00:55
Gerinychspeaking of desktop managers... i installed xubuntu packages on my ubuntu, but when i try to login with a xfce session, it still looks like gnome00:55

Dr_willisGerinych,  you DID select 'xfce' in the login screen session menu?00:55

K_Dallasthanks redvamp12800:56
root______sunra 7.4 ?   you sure it's not 8.4 ?00:57
Dr_willissunra,  once you install ubuntu via wubi - you should be able to apt-get install anything you want...  but fluxbuntu - may  be special since its a disrto with their own variant/package/repos. You should be able to get 'fluxbox' however00:57
redvamp128K_Dallas:  it is kind of general but should work for the 64 bit as well00:57

perlsyntaxfaster then dail up00:59
Dr_willissunra,  apt-get install fluxbox, is ablut all there is to getting fluxbox..  proberly not a big download either.. Installing the 'fluxbuntu desktop' may be a bigger download.00:59
redvamp128K_Dallas:  I dont' have a 64 bit though --- but These are the best guides out there to get you on the right track for sound..00:59
K_Dallasredvamp128, thanks. i look into both of them00:59
sunraDr_willis: yeah, it was less about getting fluxbox and more about NOT installing the full ubuntu distro00:59
HeliodorBah...00:59
redvamp128I would try the first one first-- the second one involves compiling Alsa source00:59
sunraand I just wanted to see if I could make it work00:59
Heliodorany way to speed up the show when having auto-hide on a panel in gnome? It takes for ever right now01:00
K_Dallasredvamp128, sure. i try compiling as a last resort01:00
sunrathanks all01:00
root______sunra if i understand it correctly   fluxbuntu is the only *buntu which uses an installer that will work in less than 128m ram    the rest use ubiquity. if you have more than 128m you could use the server/alternate install iso01:02
redvamp128K_Dallas:  also here is the main Alsa site as well to get the cutting edge source from Main Page - AlsaProject <http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Main_Page>01:02

Dante123hi  all, I have a d-link dwl 900ap that is hooked up to my adsl modem/router via ethernet cable and also into my pc via the supplied usb cable.  I have read that this unit will work with ap-utils so that i can be managed from linux (otherwise it has to be done from a windows pc as this unit does not have web based control)  I have installed ap-utils but do not know how to access/use it.  Any suggestions?01:02
mmmiiikkkeeeafter I right click on a folder and select the "share this folder" box and click "Create Share" I can't seem to access it on any of my computers.  Also I noticed that my smb.conf does not change at all after I do this.  "ps -e | grep smbd" shows there are 2 smbd processes running.  is that normal?  what should I do?01:03

HeliodorI re-partitioned my disk with Gparted, but it still shows that the discs contain data... How can that be??01:21
Jack_Sparrowtopsub, there is often a jumper that you can set on a drive to fake the cylinder count and get all of the drive to be seen.  I assume these are not identical drives or they have different jumper settings01:21

Jack_Sparrowdubside, stick with 32 bit unless you must access over 4 gigs or ram01:21
Heliodordubside: 64bit version can handle more RAM and in-memory data01:21

ubottuPlease don't use "LOL" and "OMG" and so forth on a regular basis. This is IRC, not IM, and using those lines on their own is not required, and it is rather annoying to the rest of the people in the channel; thanks.03:10

syockitChrisUK: meanwhile, if you give more specifics here, maybe someone with similar experiences can give a hand03:12
ChrisUKsyockit: Thanks for the advice, but I've been doing this for three weeks and have not found the solution03:12
tmg1|taylorJack_Sparrow: you're absolutely right it goes back to my practices, however03:12
mylistodoes anyone know if there is a work around for webcams that don't work in skype?03:12

ChrisUKMethinX: Does yours work in Ubuntu 8.10? can you run compiz and games?03:14
syockitnope, that wasn't Japanese03:14
syockitI understood little of what xul said03:15
jeeves_MossTheMusicGuy, sudo apt-get --purge remove <package>03:15
syockitWhat does force-remove mean anyway?03:15
TheMusicGuythat didn't work; it still won't remove the package.03:15
sponixok... website says 8.04.2 Desktop is supported to 2011 and Server until 2013 for Security Patches. Does the Server version pull from a different repo? If not, what difference does it make, and so forth ?03:16
smokieezerhoden, thanks03:16

ChrisUKJack_Sparrow: Am already there, no one is helping.. Thanks for the advice03:18
syockitMethinX: can you also give a look03:19
Jack_SparrowChrisUK, I asked earlier if you stopped gdm when you installed the drivers and you seemed not to know what I was talking about.03:19
tmg1|taylorTheMusicGuy: you can 'completely remove' in synaptic, 'purge' in aptitude, or just down right delete it03:19
tmg1|taylorprobably a way to do it with apt, too03:19
hagrchhow can i change the theme for KDE programs (amarok, etc) when running gnome?03:19
syockittmg1|taylor: not if it's broken03:20
jeeves_MossTheMusicGuy, it looks like it's trying to remove true type fonts, and if that's all it's erroring, then don't worry about it.  you're prob using it in your GUI03:20
ChrisUKJack_Sparrow: No, I did not know, could you explain?03:20
Jack_SparrowTheMusicGuy, Just curious, was synaptic/apt-get used to install what you are trying to remove03:20

jeeves_MossTheMusicGuy, hunnnn.  "sudo apt-get -f" I think will go through and fix problems03:22
Jack_Sparrowchasmarang, -903:22
Flannelchasmarang: Likely both.  (well, one at one time, and the other at the other time)03:23
chasmarangthanks Jack - the reason I asked because I'm running to versions a 9 and an 1103:23
TheMusicGuysyockit: I get basically the same error03:24
syockitI thought they have a restricted driver installer for latest ubuntu03:24
TheMusicGuyjeeves_Moss: that isn't a valid command03:24
chasmarangyes thanks Flannel - I was wondering how to update the 9 to an 1103:24
jeeves_MossTheMusicGuy, try googling the fix switch03:24
Flannelchasmarang: I believe its currently at -13, but I can't say that for certain.  Just regular updates will install the latest kernel, which will be chosen at your next reboot (you can manually choose at the GRUB menu)03:25
syockitTheMusicGuy: see post #2 on http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=34113103:25
syockitChrisUK: how did you install the restricted driver? your xorg log shows it's using nv. If I'm not mistaken, restricted driver is nvidia03:26
syockitMethinX: is this correct?03:26
chasmarangthanks Flannel - it's been a while I had both and they were just updated by the manager03:26

duanedesignBrack10: Even with no coding experience you can triage bugs. Looking for duplicates and forwarding bugs upstream. To make it easier start with a package you know well. Sorry to admin for off topic remarks:)04:02
cjoneshow can you check if a device is working04:02
ChungwaSo any suggestions on how I can get Ubuntu to allow me to change the permissions? I have tried force mounting the MP3 player and while that took away the little pretty locks on the files, when I go into the properties it still says I'm not allowed to change the permissions? I'm truly sorry I said that Ubuntu felt like Windows when in told me I couldn't change the permissions - honest!04:03
CoUrPsE]DeAdlol.04:03
CoUrPsE]DeAdAnd so you should be.04:03

X-722Question: Jaunty stable enough for install, or should I wait a bit?04:03
davew009hey, i need help fixing up my menu.lst, im running mint but i installed ubuntu over a non-working partition of itself, but now the root is messed up04:03
Brack10sounds good04:03
pandakingI just compiled and installed ZNC on my new install of 8.10 server edition, but it seems it recommends to not run as root. How do I uninstall? There must be lots of files everywhere.04:04
L|nuxPS2@X-722 i would say wait - but thats just me04:04
duanedesignBrack10: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/HowToTriage04:04
X-722L|nuxPS2: You still on Ibex?04:04
L|nuxPS2yeah - i tried jaunty on my amd quad and it was extremely buggy04:04
syockitX-722: I don't have problem right now in jaunty, but while it's not frozen, can't guarantee that everything will stay intact04:04
caimlasdoes anyone know if there has been a fix made available for ubuntu 8.10 for the I/O latency issues yet, and if so, where I might get it/how I might install it?04:04
mindrapecjones - depends on the device....04:04
mindrapecjones - if you want to see if the device is detected you can    sudo lshw           if you want to see if it causing errors you can dmesg04:05
tmg1|taylorriddlebox: aptitude : press = on the linux kernel packages, synaptic, there's a 'lock version' under 'package'04:05
melodicokey I have found those files, and imbedded my line into bashrc, the training guide I am reading said bashrc is appended to bash_profile, but this is not true with ubuntu?04:05

tmg1|tayloris there a trick to getting rid of packet sniffers?04:08
bsusa_hello all could someone please help me, i have setup samba and i cant see anyone on the nerwork, i dont know wats going on.04:08
tmg1|taylorbsusa_: are you sure you're on the same domain as your windows boxes(my windows using friends have this problem all the time :( )04:08
ChungwaThank you. And once again, I love you all!04:09
pandakingAnyone know how to uninstall an application that was compiled and installed from source?04:09
unused_bagelswhat's a good java app for firefox? I think icedtea isn't going to work for my chat program, since it wants to make all button text white...04:09
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, you can use the tarpit target in iptables, to get those sniffers all sticky04:09
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, get's the packets, if sent via TCP, stuck in TCP Wait heck, never replying04:10
caimlasthe ubuntu kernel I/O latency bug - anyone know when/if it has been fixed in ubuntu and if packages are available?04:10
nickrudpandaking, cd into the dir where you compiled the code, and run sudo make uninstall (this assuming the dev's used the standard make rules)04:10
tmg1|taylorrdw200169: that is helpful if i can't get rid of it04:10
pandakingnickrud - thanks very much :D04:10
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, the best method, though, is just never replying to those packets, ICMP or otherweise04:10
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, make those ports you're not using seem invisible04:11
robfwhen I boot I get an error  "[ 25.471845] note : swapper[1] exited with preempt_count 1"  then a panic Anyone familiar with this problem?   the kernel panics so I can't even boot  its a fresh install of 8.0104:12
tmg1|taylorrdw200169: also good advise---but that too is a preventative measure04:12
tmg1|taylorand wouldn't have helped me not get a packet sniffer :)04:13
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, the only way to stop sniffing is by not making your IP accessible by them04:13
tmg1|tayloruh04:14
bsusa_im on the same workgroup, i cant se the workgroup on the network04:14
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, but that is counterproductive...04:14
rdw200169tmg1|taylor, putting yourself out there will always cause those sorts of problems04:14
tmg1|taylorchkrootkit suggests a packet sniffer is already installed on my system04:14

tmg1|taylori'v egotten two viruses in a week on two different flavours of linux04:15
tmg1|taylorall of my debian/ubuntu boxes have been pwned04:15
tmg1|taylorright out of the box for this system04:15
robfwoah04:15
mJokerI have a few questions, and I figure this is the best place to go for it.04:15
caimlastmg1|taylor, do you have nmap installed? how about snort, etc?04:15
robftmg1|taylor got a name of the virus,  I'd like to see this.04:15
tmg1|taylorcaimlas: not atm, this is a spankin' new install04:15
tmg1|taylorLinux.RST.b for the last one, not sure about this one04:15
caimlastmg1|taylor, wtf are you doing to get rooted so quickly?04:15
qcjnhey, i'm reading to understand about skype or something similar, or not !!! because really, what i'd like is something i could "voice chat" using my bluetooth "that i don't use for my cell phone, cause i don't use my cellphone ? any suggestion ?04:16
g0nz0I've been fiddling around with PCSX and the XVideo Driver won't let me actually configure it... does anyone have any experience with this?04:16
caimlastmg1|taylor, I've only once ever had a problem, and that was my own damn negligence04:16
tmg1|taylorcaimlas: sadly I have a webpad from 1995 that has a keyboard that is barely usable04:16
konSorry to bother you guys so much. I have one last question and then i'll be on my way.04:16
tmg1|taylorI made, for a little while last night, a user with username/password easy to type(and therefor guess)04:16
mJokerI use Fedora 9, and I think I'm going to switch to Ubuntu 8.10. Can anyone tell me if this is really worth the effort?04:16
tmg1|taylorI deleted the username shortly thereafter but was already compromised04:16
tmg1|taylorso yes, my fault...but still.04:16
konDoes a live cd (ubuntu) require good working ram?04:16
caimlastmg1|taylor, how?04:16
caimlastmg1|taylor, did you have ssh installed?04:17
caimlaskon, yes04:17
tmg1|taylorrobf: i have the files still from Linux.RST.b you can have them if you want04:17
robftmg1|taylor how you manage to get those,  they're actual MEVs,04:17
tmg1|taylorscripts etc04:17
robfI don't need em,  I got a raw copy here.04:17
robfwell on a disc somewhere04:17
tmg1|taylordebsums reported a bunch of files changed, I've replaced those and now debsums doesn't complain anymore04:17
qcjnmJoker: why don't you try a live cd..i think it's a matter of opinion ??04:17
robftmg1|taylor thought it was something new04:18
rdw200169kon, not necessarily, you have to use memtest86, on the installer cd, to find the bad spots, then quarantine those04:18
mJokerqcjn: I don't know what that is :P04:18
nickrudvirus examples and such are definitely for #ubuntu-offtopic guys04:18
robfthat things liek 4 or 5 yrs old I think04:18
tmg1|taylorqcjn: bluetooth what04:18
konrdw200169: thats exactly what i did and i get a whole bunch of errors04:18
tmg1|taylorcaimlas: ftp04:18
konbut the live cd runs perfect04:18
robfNick__I thought we were discussing him being infected,  stop being a fascist.04:18
robfer nickrud04:18
rdw200169kon, you read this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BadRAM04:18
tritiumrobf: careful with those accusations there04:19
konprobably not04:19
konI'll have a look04:19
nickrudrobf, sure. passing around samples is what I'm talking about04:19
pandakingI tried running "sudo make uninstall" but get this error: "make: *** No rule to make target `uninstall'. Stop."04:19
nickrudtritium, hyperbole doesn't phase me :)04:19
joanki123is there a software progream to allow someone to SAFELY remotely access your machine?04:19
qcjntmg1|taylor: i heard we could use some program "like skype" with a bluetooth like we use with cellphone04:19
joanki123and you can cut them off whenever you want?04:19
konIs it possible that ubuntu would install with bad ram ?04:19
tritiumnickrud: good :)04:19
X-722tmg1|taylor: Might I suggest a cloak? I mean, I dont even know you, but I know you are hooked to regina.ca04:19
caimlaswow, linux.rst-b is 6 years old04:19
robfnickrud i didn't ask,  he offered.  big difference,  and yes,  hyperbole,   I wasn't saying he was heinrich himmler.04:20
rdw200169joanki123, sure, ssh; you can kill the process for their access, using ps -AF04:20
=== the6step is now known as the6step|away
tmg1|taylorrobf: what's a MEV04:20
qcjnmJoker: look for live cd, it works from the cd without install..so you can test it04:20
wizzerwhenever i try to copy a file over from my 8 gig flash drive, it errors after about 20 megabytes04:20
rdw200169joanki123, for example: ps -AF | grep <username> will return the process # for their tty04:20
rdw200169joanki123, kill that process, and they are disconnected04:20
tmg1|taylorX-722: i have a website, usually04:20
joanki123thank you rdw20016904:21
mJokerqcjn: oh, that. I used it once before. I am honestly new to Linux so I'm sorta flying blind here. All I know is FC9 isn't doing what I want.04:21
rdw200169joanki123, then again, they can just log in again04:21
tmg1|taylori'm a very public person and the circles I stay with I've been advised to stay that way04:21
X-722A website for what?04:21
joanki123rdw so how do i stop them then?04:21
bluefox83can anyone recommend a good samba tutorial? i'm having a terrible time getting samba to work right04:21
nickrudrobf, don't escalate this, but don't put words in my mouth. I called out no one, I simply (and mean it) discuss this in -offtopic04:21
tmg1|taylor(regina sucks, btw)04:21
tmg1|taylor(uregina, too)04:21
tmg1|taylorX-722: i'm a musician04:21
joanki123rdw200169: you mean they can continue to access my machine over and over again with my information?04:21
pandakingThis is what I did to install: http://en.znc.in/wiki/Installation#Source_Tarball - any ideas how to uninstall? Thanks04:21
joanki123even if i am not here at my computer?04:21
rdw200169joanki123, what do you mean?04:21
joanki123if i let someone ssh,04:21
qcjnmJoker: so thats why it's a good idea to try live cd's..You can try a couple of distro04:21
joanki123can they login when i'm not here?04:22
X-722Yes, but advertising your IP doesnt help either04:22
X-722static65-87-245-184.regina.accesscomm.ca04:22
joanki123or do i need to give them access and they can't do it again if i dont?04:22
robfit was not a discussion for offtopic,  you brought this further than anything we said, w hich consisted of "do you want it I have it here,   no I already have it [FULL STOP]. "04:22
konBadRAM is awesome04:22
tmg1|taylorX-722: and I try to be generous---I have 100s of gigs of open source/creative commons/free software music, cultural materials and other data for download04:22
nickrudjoanki123, absolutely. untlil you revoke it04:22
joanki123k04:22
rdw200169joanki123, OHH, ok, well, you can set up a quick account, then add that user to the group 'admin'04:22
X-722All of this is on the boxes that are being rooted?04:22
joanki123is there another way i can let someone see my screen then?04:22
joanki123without havig to give them access via my wireless router, which i don't have the pasword to?04:22
robfjoanki123 several ways04:22
mJokerqcjn: Okay. I may do that.04:22
rdw200169joanki123, then they get sudo access, and ssh access, from a different user/pass04:22
scuniziI just loaded the server edition in a vbox vm and it won't boot normally or in recovery mode.. it complains that it has the wrong kernel and needs one with pae or some such.. any suggested solutions?04:23
kondoes memtest86 v2.01 stop at any point or does it just recycle the checking process ?04:23
rdw200169joanki123, what exactly are you trying to do?04:23
mJokerqcjn: while I'm on this, Does anyone know if I can install Ubuntu from a Flash Drive?04:23
tmg1|taylorX-722: yes, all of this on boxes that have been rooted :(04:23
joanki123give someone access so he can fix something04:23
X-722What good is all of it if it gets rooted?04:23
X-722You need to start at least attempgint o hide your ip04:24
tmg1|taylorX-722: first time I've ever had this kind of problem was this week04:24
rdw200169joanki123, what are you trying to fix?04:24
joanki123my progeramming bug04:24
X-722Yes, but with this: static65-87-245-184.regina.accesscomm.ca - anyone with a few minutes can root you04:24
tmg1|taylorhuh04:24
X-722At least grab a cloak man04:24
qcjnmJoker: install from a flash drive, or operating from a flash drive ??04:24
kon:P04:24
mJokerqcjn: install04:24
konI'll ask again in a bit. I see its busy now.04:24
tmg1|taylorX-722: that last part I don't follow04:25
X-722Well, if they know your IP is static, thats a huge plus - for them. All it takes is a little time and some ingenuity, and they are inside your box04:25
X-722next think you know - all your box are belong to them04:25
tmg1|taylorX-722: from brute forcing passwords?04:25
X-722thing*04:25
tmg1|tayloror something else04:25
qcjnmJoker: i don't know ???04:25
beekorI'd like to get rid of my root account and name it something else, i think.04:26
pandakingIf "make uninstall" doesn't work, what else can one try?04:26
beekori see mostly dictionary attacks in my logs.04:26
X-722If its brute forcing pws and its happening that quickly, its someone who knows you04:26
mJokerlol oh well. Thanks anyway :P04:26
X-722and knows your pw habits04:26
tmg1|taylorpandaking: http://www.gnulinuxclub.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=315&Itemid=31 ?04:27

kondoes memtest86 v2.01 stop at any point or does it just recycle the checking process ?04:28
GerbilSoftcyphase: sometimes parts of VRAM aren't cleared when X is started04:28
tmg1|taylorcyphase: does it continue with the install?!04:28
syockitit's made for kde though, but you can use it anyway04:28
qcjnmJoker: because there's that, but it's not what you're really looking for ....i think ? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick04:28
cyphasetmg1|taylor: ?04:29
syockitshelby: if possible, get version 0.704:29

I tried of series of variations with or without exit0 and restarted my conn and it is still at 1mps. Any ideas?04:30
cyphaseGerbilSoft: so, windows boots up, somewhere along the bootup process a piece of the bootup screen gets stuck in vram, restart a bit later, boot into a live cd, and right before gdm starts up, it's released?04:30
shelbywhoa! this is really nice! thanks a lot :D04:30
mJokerqcjn: actually that's exactly what I was looking for, thank you :)04:30
GerbilSoftwell no, it doesn't get stuck in vram04:30
jtajiedju: yes it will be the same, the only point to release a new cd is for new installs04:30
GerbilSoftit's written to a part of vram that isn't used later04:30
GerbilSoftbut the X driver sets the framebuffer to that section of VRAM at startup04:30
cyphaseGerbilSoft: i didn't mean stuck as in stuck ;P04:30
GerbilSoftand it isn't cleared before the screen is enabled04:30
cyphaseGerbilSoft: i see04:30
cyphaseGerbilSoft: one of those ghost in the machine moments04:31
GerbilSoftyeah, kind of04:31
cyphaseGerbilSoft: sort of04:31
GerbilSoftit probably would be a good idea for X to clear the framebuffer before enabling the screen04:31

mezquitalewhich ubuntu based distribution that looks like redmond would you recommend?  I want to install it on my nieces' desktop and dual boot it with vista04:40
mindrapekubuntu has options to be as Windows-like as possible I'd say...04:40
powertool08I'm using vncviewer -via ssh to connect to x11vnc running on my desktop, whenever I switch to fullscreen mode whatever I type goes into the topmost window and not into the vnc session. Does anyone know how to stop this?04:40
nickrudyeah kubuntu is capable of looking like windows (another strike ;)04:40
konnickrud: lmao04:41
hagrchhi.  I was trying to install kubuntu-desktop, and i get the following error: "dpkg: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/updates/0105' near line 1: newline in field name `#padding'"04:41
mezquitalemindrape, true, i could install kde and then customize it to look like redmond however i want the look and feel to come with the distribution04:41
tmg1|taylorhagrch: i have had that problem before04:41
tmg1|taylorhagrch: got rid of it for a little while, but it came back.  I think there's a corrupt .deb file involved somewhere04:41
mindrapemezquitale: well if you dont want to go w an ubuntu distro but just a Windows-like Debian-based distro then hit up distrowatch.com04:42
tmg1|taylorif you find it, things might work04:42
LeefmcQuestion: Anyone know why compiz is messing up my keybind for Control+Esc? I can't seem to make any escape binds work with compiz on.04:42
tmg1|taylorbut if you want to fix it in the meanwhile, there might be some text that you can modify in /var/lib/dpkg/updates/0105 --- search for #padding04:42
tritiummezquitale: ubuntu doesn't strive to make the look and feel like Windows, thankfully.04:42
tmg1|tayloronly problem with that is that might not be the only issue04:42
mezquitalemindrape, actually i wanted an ubuntu based one however if there is another distribution that will do the trick I will be more than happy to try  it04:42
nickrudmezquitale, you can check distrowatch.org , they have descriptions of and one probably will mention it's similarity04:43
tritiummezquitale: why is the Windows look and feel important?04:43
mezquitaledistrowatch.org it is!!! thank you gentlemen for your input, I am going to download a distro, try it out, then install it on my nieces' desktop and see if they ever boot up to vista again04:43
nickrudviral installations, I have to bow to your subtlety, mezquitale04:44
jscinozHi04:44
mezquitaletritium, because the distro is for my nieces, the older one dreads linux, the command prompt, and the file structure, the younger one is too young to care and hates not being able to enjoy all the appz in linux04:44
tritiummezquitale: as you wish, but in my mind that's a very constraining limitation04:45
mindrapemezquitale - I recommend sticking w regular good ol' fashioned Ubuntu then install VMWare Player and get a WinXP (avoid Vista pl0x kthx) VM and enjoy never having to fuss with virus or spyware cleanup again (just re-initiate a clean image)04:45

jscinozI'm trying to set up a transparent caching squid proxy, but i cant get it to work. It works if i explicitly set the proxy in the browser, but i cant get it to work transparently, i assume i have made a mistake in my iptables, is this correct: http://pastebin.com/f7ee2382d ?04:46
tmg1|taylormindrape: nah, guessable password04:46
mezquitaletritium, if they see something they're familiar with they will try it, once theyre hooked most likely they will want to harness the full power of linux and will ask for more, but you have to begin somewhere04:46
mindrapelol... was it... password?04:46
tmg1|taylorand X-722 has some suggestions as to why as well04:46
tmg1|taylormindrape: nah but not that much more complex04:47
tritiummezquitale: I understand why you're doing it, yes.04:47
tmg1|taylormindrape: the surprising part to me was how long it took, less than 2 days04:47
konwhats the avg. run time for a 2GB ddr2 memtest86 ?04:47
konits going on 54minutes now04:47
konis this normal ?04:47
nickrudkon, I let them run overnight04:47
tmg1|taylorif it takes less than 2 days to root a ubuntu system of any kind it's no longer the case that windows has any inate ability to be 'free of viruses'04:47
mindrapetmg1|taylor: well I recommend you make your password something a bit more complicated... like take the first letter of each word for a sentence that is easy to remember  "I drive down Interstate 5 every day to get to my Crazy job"   IddI5edtgtmCj04:47
konOh, wow04:48
mezquitalemindrape,  i have a better idea, start with a linux distro that looks like redmond, get hooked, get another linux distro that is completely linux--never boot up to redmond again unless there is an app or hardware that is not supported in linux04:48
koni dont think this lappy can make it if its running over night04:48
joeyjonesinteresting, my ubuntu cd iso was only 474mb.04:48
jscinozkon, yeah it can take several hours sometimes04:48
konOh i see04:48
tmg1|taylormindrape: oh definitely, if I continue to allow passwords/ssh at all.  The problem for me came when my keyboard was incapable of typing properly and hence required a shorter password.  But still---it is now only a matter of time04:48
konThat sucks04:48
tritiumjoeyjones: is it an alternate CD?04:49
tmg1|taylori mean, my main passwords are fairly good.  But it's the weakest link in the chain that breaks ;)04:49

nite_johnboyHi - Tried to get into home folder or root of my usb thumb drive using Terminal - used " sudo /dev/sdb " but getting error " command not found " - Someone give me the right script I need to use ? ?04:49
mindrapetmg1|taylor: well you can setup rulesets to disallow easy to guess passwords... to stop yourself from exposing yourself.  (mind blown?)04:49
konwill memtest tell me exactly what part of the ram is bad? I want to do the BadRAM "mem=##MB" kernel option to temporarily disable memory above that point04:50
joeyjonestritium: nope04:50
tmg1|taylormindrape: i hate rulesets---they often do not allow english words despiteyour example04:50
Flanneltmg1|taylor: If you refuse to choose a decent password, you have no right to complain.  It's not a "security issue" with Ubuntu.  Another thing you may want to look into is DenyHosts, which may thrwart anyone brute forcing.04:50
joeyjonesbut it booted to the first screen successfuly04:50
joeyjonesthen took over an hour before i closed it running the cd check04:50
mindrapeah, wise are the words of Flannel.  :)04:50
nickrudnite_johnboy, a couple things wrong there:  you would cd  into the dir, and it should be a directory under /media (dev/sdb is the raw device) . so cd /media/<somename>04:50
nickrudnite_johnboy, the <somename> is the name you see on the desktop04:51
tmg1|taylorFlannel: I'll grant that for my specific situation I am at fault and no amount of ubuntu side help will fix that04:51
tmg1|taylorbut 2 days04:51
Flanneltmg1|taylor: "two days" for what?  For someone to brute force?  I don't understand what you're getting at.04:52
tmg1|taylortwo days for a randomly connected box with a vulnerability to be exploited04:52
tmg1|taylorif that, maybe less04:52
Flanneltmg1|taylor: "vulnerability"?04:52
tmg1|taylorthat is windows-level speed of attackers04:52
GerbilSofttook a month for a friend of mi-ne--04:52
GerbilSoft*minus the -s04:52
Flanneltmg1|taylor: So... your point is "The internet is dangerous"? or what?04:52
GerbilSofti set up an ubuntu box as a media system04:52
tmg1|taylorit means there are sufficient quality/quantity of motivated and technically apt threats that your ubuntu system as well as mine is no longer as safe as it was04:52
nite_johnboynicrud; Ah - so my cop. name is " newlife" - so would be - " cd /media/newlife " - correct?04:52
tmg1|taylorFlannel: particularly for ubuntu users04:52
GerbilSofthe insisted that the username and password should both be his name04:52
GerbilSofta month later he got pwned04:53
tritiumtmg1|taylor: your problem is not ubuntu-related, but password-related04:53
GerbilSoft(he also insisted on setting up ssh with it)04:53
mindrapetmg1|taylor: if you had ANY operating system w an easy to guess password you'd be hacked.04:53
tmg1|taylortritium: that may very well be the case but in case you've noticed a lot of ubuntu supported tools utilize passwords;)04:53
tritiumtmg1|taylor: and?04:53
Flanneltmg1|taylor: Uh.... People who brute force don't target particular system types.  Your box is [a box on the internet that asks me for a password], not "A Ubuntu Box" or anything else.04:53
tritiumPick strong passwords!04:53
mindrapetmg1|taylor: ie; if I had a mainframe connected to the interbutts and you guessed the password for some user with SYSTEM SPECIAL authority you'd own the sysplex... and this is shocking to you?04:53
nickrudtmg1|taylor, no system has ever been secure since the net started. Philosophical discussions about security belong on #ubuntu-offtopic, specific instructions on basic security is fine here04:54

nickrudc_webkit, don't know, I've never tried setting all the jumpers as primary:)05:18
c_webkithmm .. well the current senario is05:18

promet_I switched from onboard to Soundblaster sound and the sound system may be confused05:19

nickrudc_webkit, you mean, you have a primary partition with win98 (wow!) an extended, and a logical partition in the extended with xp?05:21

c_webkitcan i make a separate partition of tht for home via tht05:22

c_webkitso tht if Ubuntu corrupts.. the home folder is separate05:22
c_webkitand how much Disk space is requred for Ubuntu05:22
c_webkit8.1005:22
scunizic_webkit, having multiple drives installed typically means that when you install grub gets confused as to where things are and puts itself on the wrong drive.. then you need to reinstall grub.. it's really good at that when you have a mix of drives .. SATA and ide ... re: nickrud05:22

burtoni got 127.0.0.105:23
nickrudc_webkit, a good idea. About 15gb for root is all you need. Use the rest for /home. Less for root if the partition is relatively small, but not less than 7gb05:23

scunizinickrud, what I did was yank the connector on the drives that I wasn't installing to and then do the installation.. after I reconnected and reinstalled grub where I thought it should be.. if that didn't work I just installed grub to all the drives.. good for backup that way too.05:26

ShakedownI just got the vim-runtime package, I want to do the tutorial!05:37
duanedesignBsims: I just had to "update" my key I am not sure if they updated it or what  http://keyserver.ubuntu.com:11371/pks/lookup?op=get&search=0x778978B00F7992B005:37
tmg1|taylorbut otoh, then you get stuck like I am, with a compromised part of the system that is not clear how to fix05:37
_Vi_Shakedown: that is the tutorial lol05:37
ShakedownA blank screen?05:37
mindrapetmg1|taylor: with any compromised system your best bet is a WIPE AND START FRESH.05:37
rdw200169bruce_, many times, i shut off the swap to keep the graphics app quick, it doesn't cause problems, the kernel just clears out the cruft and uses the ram instead05:37
_Vi_its blank  ?!05:37
Bsimsduanedesign: I'll try that05:37
bruce_ok05:37
tmg1|taylormindrape: that will mean buying new hardware at this point and I'd like to at least try to avoid that ;)05:37
ShakedownSo maybe I'm confusing vim with emacs, but one of them has an "interactive" tutorial built-in. I thought that was the vimtutor though?05:38
mindrapenew hardware for a reinstall?05:38
tmg1|tayloryes05:38
rdw200169bruce_ b/c ubuntu only needs about 500M to run, the rest just makes it quicker ;)05:38
_Vi_Shakedown: hang on let me see if i get the same problems.. one sec05:38
rdw200169bruce_ and my ram is significantly faster than my swap, so I prefer the ram at all costs ;)05:38
tmg1|taylori stupidly trusted ubuntu default installer's partition setup, now my mostly full hd is full05:38
tmg1|taylorand only one partition05:38
MeVsTheVoicesUbuntu runs on 384m of ram05:38
bruce_i see05:39
bruce_thanks for the info05:39
bruce_I need help on developing IRC client05:39
tmg1|taylorotoh I didn't really know what to expect for a ubuntu install so underguessing partitionwise might have been painful down the road too05:39
DarkTerrorhello... does kubuntu support wireless connections better and easier (interface and installation wise) THAN ubuntu ? (both last versions)05:39
mindrapebruce_: head on over to #yourprogramminglanguageofchoice05:39
rdw200169MeVsTheVoices, i was just using a random number i would know would be correct; that and no one installs 384M of ram, usually 512M that's how i came up w/the number05:39
bruce_thanks05:39
_Vi_Shakedown: hmmm what command are you using exactly for that ?05:40
Shakedownvimtutor05:40
_Vi_ah mine comes up as text05:40
MeVsTheVoices256+128 thats how I came up with that, satisfy05:40
ShakedownSo...is there this interactive tutorial for vim?05:40
MHai !!!!!!!05:40
rdw200169MeVsTheVoices, well, to be quite literal, i successfully installed Ubuntu 8.10 on a system w/128M of ram, and it ran like garbage05:41
BsimsAnyone know if there will be unofficial kde3 packages for jaunty? I am sorry but kde4 gives me hives05:41
rdw200169MeVsTheVoices, it was a very very old laptop, i ended up going w/Vector Linux05:41
tmg1|taylormindrape: to reiterate---my virus problem is my fault, in case I'm not making that clear05:41
MeVsTheVoicesOh I'm not saying it doesn't run like shit, 384 is enough to hold kernel, Gnome, and 2-3 apps Max05:41
DarkTerrorhello... does kubuntu support wireless connections better and easier (interface and installation wise) THAN ubuntu ? (both last versions)05:41
mindrapetmg1|taylor: on multiple fronts, yes...05:41
_Vi_Shakedown: vimtutuor is interactive, but all it is a online (not online as web) text file, it kinda looks like a man page, that's it. nothing too fancy05:41
MHai !!!!!!!!05:41
mindrapeM - can I help you?05:42
Bsimsrdw200169: what gui do you use?05:42
My05:42
MeVsTheVoicesDarkTerror: No05:42
rdw200169MeVsTheVoices, so let's agree that 500M would be enough to run well?05:42
rdw200169Bsims, what do you mean?05:42
DarkTerrorthank you05:42
Shakedown_Vi_: So...why is my vimtutor page blank?05:42
rdw200169Bsims, that install i was referring to was a normal Gnome install05:42
MeVsTheVoicesrdw200169: No, 384 is enough to run well, it really doesn't matter, almost everyone nowadays is going to have more05:42
Bsimsrdw200169: Ah if you want something lighter try lxde its quite nice05:42
Veritas718hey favorite music programs that support ipod touch v2? and best support for stl editing? (sorry for second question :P)05:42
rdw200169MeVsTheVoices, thank you for pointing out the obvious ;)05:43
mindrapeDarkTerror: they are both ubuntu just one uses gnome and one uses kde... so I'd say the support is about the same unless you prefer the KDE apps for network management over Gnome ones... ?05:43
rdw200169Bsims, yeah, i tried all that, i.e. Xubuntu, etc...05:43
_Vi_Shakedown: run 'dpkg -l *vim*' in a terminal, pastebin the results05:43

decayos so it's wrong saying ubuntu is linux eh?05:46
decayubuntu is GNU, with linux kernel05:46
Veritas718hey favorite music programs that support ipod touch v2? and best support for stl editing? (sorry for second question :P)05:46

Geoffrey2mindrape, do you happen to know if there's a sort option there...to sort by size?  I didn't see any such option in the man page...05:46
MeVsTheVoicesNo, its not wrong saying its linux, it is linux, its not UNIX05:46
mindrapeGeoffrey2: sort -u05:46
ShakedownK so I pastebin'd it05:46
FlakHey, I recently got a laptop with vista... really, really want to get ubuntu on it. I downloaded 8.10-desktop-i386.iso through the torrent, and slowly burnt it onto a cd, when i boot off the cd, it freezes when i select any of the options (like check CD for defects, run ubuntu, install ubuntu - it does not freeze when i start a memory test)05:46
rdw200169Veritas718, i think Songbird supports that, i'm not sure, i know it does support other Ipods05:47
Veritas718hey favorite music programs that support ipod touch?05:47

Veritas718flack:the laptop comes with AHCI turned on in the bios05:47
bruce_grep or find? or something like that?05:47
* Flak checks on that, thank you Veritas718 05:48

bruce_I wanna know how to handle the command privmsg05:48
decaybruce_: you need to  loop through files and grep05:48
histoBruce, okay you want to install irssi from source?05:48

mindrapedecay: so * will do it  :)05:50
decayoink oink05:50
bruce_do I need the quote?05:50
lstarnesbruce_: try running this in irssi's source directory: grep -nHR "function-name" .05:50
_Vi_Shakedown: hmmm i'd do 'sudo apt-get install vim*' and see if that fixes it.05:50
bruce_do I need quotes?05:50
mindrapeyes please.05:50
lstarnesbruce_: no, but you will need them if what you are searching for contains spaces05:50
bruce_ok05:51
bruce_is the function case sensitive?05:51
lstarnesbruce_: yes05:51
bruce_ok05:51
FlakVeritas718, AHCI was indeed on, trying again with it on IDE05:51
lstarnesbruce_: although you could use -inHR instead of -nHR to make it case-insensitive05:51
decaybruce_:  use grep -i to turn case sensitivity off05:51
* mindrape introduces bruce_ to the manpages... man grep05:51

ShakedownPhh, rubbish - now it works05:53
lstarnesbruce_: did you include the . at the end of the command?05:53
bruce_huh?05:53
ShakedownI "sudo apt-get install vim" and got it now - thanks!05:53
bruce_no...05:53
FlakVeritas718, I'm still getting the same scenario05:53
bruce_what I did was grep -nHR PRIVMSG05:53
ShakedownThanks Flannel05:53
Veritas718yeah i didnt think it should matter05:53
lstarnesbruce_: that was necessary.  Hit ctrl+C then do grep -nHR PRIVMSG .05:53

_Vi_sellyoursoul: like that's so rare06:18
sellyoursouli'm just asking because i was thinking about trying it.06:18
FlannelSensor: No, the minimal is the alternate CD installer, without any packages on the CD itself (so it downloads everything off the internet)06:18
BsimsSensor: it will leave you with a command line install and expect you to install the rest yourself06:18
FlannelBsims: That's not true.06:19
FlannelWell, it could be.  But isn't necessarily true.06:19
_Vi_sellyoursoul: hehe06:19
* Bsims nods true enough...06:19
Bsimson both sides06:19
SensorFlannel, thanks.06:19
FlannelBsims: It gives you identical options to the alternate CD.06:19
BsimsSensor: lets turn this around what do you want?06:19
sellyoursoul_Vi_:  i'm not sure how well it would work on my single core cpu and anemic ram06:19
frybyerdw200169: soloutions tend to be for older versions of ubuntu..hmmm..?06:19
rdw200169Sensor, why not just install ubuntu-server without any of the server options, w/the linux-generic package, it's exactly what your talking about06:19
BsimsSensor: and remember Ubuntu will mail you the cd/dvd06:20
Bsimsfor free06:20
rdw200169frybye, yes, but the PulseAudio configurations persist06:20
SensorBsims, I want an install without a desktop.06:20
Flannelrdw200169: As is the alternate CD with a command line install.06:20
_Vi_sellyoursoul: better than vista i would think, but that's OT for here :)06:20
* Bsims nods sounds like you want the server version06:20
alexb92sellyoursoul: yes i am , i have the retail dvd and it works06:20
rdw200169Flannel, yes, but that's difficult...06:20
Flannelrdw200169: Er... no?06:20
Sensorrdw200169, the server is the same install without the desktop?06:20
jgreenhey rdw20016906:20
BsimsOr take a normal version and remove X06:20
rdw200169Flannel, well, i guess no harder than installing linux-generic post-install of ubuntu-serer06:20
BsimsSensor: you are wanting a command line only version?06:20
sellyoursoulalexb92:  does it work well, or is it just a play thing?06:21
Flannelrdw200169: Its easier.  Select "install a command line system" from the boot menu.06:21
rdw200169jgreen, hey06:21
Flannelrdw200169: No swapping of kernels or anything afterwards.06:21
alexb92what do u mean?06:21
jgreenback to the gd issue... I have gd talking to apache the issue is its old06:21
jgreenand when I look at PPAs they might be the same old gd packages06:21
* Bsims tends to favor X and either wmaker or lxde for servers that way I have X if I need it06:21
sellyoursoulalexb92:  i mean does it run well, without any major problems?06:21
rdw200169jgreen, that's a matter i cannot solve, reluctantly.06:22
SensorBsims, yes, I've done it already by 'removing' the desktop afterwards but wanted it done initially.06:22
jgreenI know06:22
rdw200169jgreen, your only other option is probably installing the whole mess from source06:22
frybyerdw200169: so what does that mean about "PulseAudio configs persist..?" the problem cant be fixed or ??06:22
alexb92yeah it runs fine, the only thing it does do occasionally is disconnect from the internet which involves a reboot to fix06:22
jgreenI found this06:22

SensorBsims,Blannel,rdw thanks for your help, gotta headache for now. goodbye.06:23
jgreenI tried it... I probably have to get rid of a bunch of modules06:23
rdw200169frybye, what i mean is, the tips about how to change the pulseaudio configuration should not change06:23
FlannelSensor: You want the alternate CD.  There's an option (in the F5 menu on recent versions... maybe f4?  One of them) to install a "command line only" system.  That's exactly what you want.06:23
jgreenin order to make it compile properl06:23

jim_pGnea, apt-file? but it will take ages to update its db before searching07:28
FlannelGnea: packages.ubuntu.com may be easier (second fieldset)07:29
energYCan I remove all the sources from the repo list?07:29

FlannelenergY: you could, but it wouldn't be very useful.07:29

chronofirejim_p cool im going to see if i can get these to work07:29

GneaFlannel: thanks :)07:29
rdw200169paul68, http://paste.ubuntu.com/108481/07:29
FlannelenergY: Because you'd.... never get any updates?  Oh, you mean deb-src?07:29
Gneajim_p: not worried about it taking awhile07:29
energYFlannel: I can't compile, and apt-get update is slooow...07:29
rdw200169paul68, you should test it real quick on the terminal, i.e. python file.py or whatever07:30

transportercan somebody help me cairo clock does not open up as normal user but opens up as root error msg in terminal (cairo-clock:6753): librsvg-CRITICAL **: rsvg_handle_render_cairo_sub: assertion `handle != NULL' failed07:31
Gneatijoev: please explain07:31
rdw200169paul68, whatever you want07:31
jim_pchronofire, why?07:31
rdw200169paul68, for example, i used netman.py07:31
tijoevfirst off, the partion program sees my ide drives as scsi07:31
tijoevi get sda, sdb, sdc, and sdd instead of hda, hdb, hdc, and hda07:31
Gneatijoev: that's normal, it's using a scsi-emulation. it's a good thing.07:31
tijoevok07:31
rdw200169paul68, the bang at the top (#!/usr/bin/python) tells bash it's a python file, so if you give it execute (chmod +x) it will run w/python, even if you don't give it an extension07:32
energYGnea: Why is it emulating scsi?07:32
=== gordon is now known as Guest7891
tijoevdo I leave grub set to the default hd(0) or change it to sdc?07:32
Gneatijoev: the way it works now, every storage device is now scsi, so it all gets put in a chain, so you can throw ide, sata and scsi at it and it'll just order them neatly07:32
rdw200169paul68, this can also run as user, so you don't need to use sudo07:32
rdw200169paul68, since it's only changing a gconf setting (yay!)07:33
Gneatijoev: it should be whatever sdc is mapped to in /boot/grub/device.map07:33
chronofirejim_p im just not sure what i am supposed to do with the files i tried to put them in my template folder then open them07:33

=== more is now known as less
tijoevcan't tell because I cannot boot07:33
rdw200169paul68, it works in 8.04, it may throw dbus errors in 8.10, i don't know, if it does, i'm sorry07:33
rdw200169paul68, test it in the terminal real quick07:33
paul68rdw200169: no problem ok07:34
GneaenergY: sanity.07:34
rdw200169paul68, if it doesn't have any errors, then yes07:34
Gneatijoev: then I'm not sure where you're at in the installation process...07:34
rdw200169paul68, the only problem is, that it must actually be connected to a wireless network to work, sometimes, NetworkManager doesn't connect until *after* the session starts07:34
tijoevwell, I partion my HDs then move forward07:34
chronofirejim_p i tried to install this one i sent you and its only chaning the top of windows07:34
tijoevset up a user account and password07:35
Gneaokay07:35
jim_pchronofire, extract them until you have a file with the themes name, and one or two subfolders inside it, named metacity and gtk207:35
tijoevthen there is a screen that reviews entries07:35
rdw200169paul68, what you can do, is put a launcher on your taskbar to run that script, or, you can make a cronjob to run that script every 5 minutes or something07:35
paul68rdw200169: ok07:35
tijoevthere is an advanced button for grub and proxy setup07:35
jim_pchronofire, then this is the window border theme.07:35
Gnearight07:35
tijoevI click the buuton for grub and point it at sdc07:35
chronofirejim_p shouldnt more have changed then just the border07:35
tijoevwhich has all my necessary partitions07:36
paul68rdw200169: thanks my friend I will play arround with it and let you know what the outcome is work is calling again lol07:36
rdw200169paul68, good luck!07:36
tijoevthen I continues with the install07:36
tijoevget to the restart button07:36
jim_pchronofire, what file did you download?07:36
tijoev restart07:36
paul68rdw200169: thanks and see you next time07:36
rdw200169paul68, if you look closely at the script, it's pretty self explanatory (at least i tried to make it that way) so you can make chagnes07:37
paul68rdw200169: I saw it thanks07:37
tijoevand the boot fails at a revalidation error07:37
Gneatijoev: see if you can separate your steps with commas or something, you're making the channel scroll needlessly, please.07:37

bullgard4Last night I visited a local Ubuntu Club, used my laptop computer T42 with NetworkManager and left it hibernating. Today I thawed it at home in my LAN with DSL access. Now my T42 cannot ping to neighboring computer in this LAN and Firefox reports: "Firefox can't find the server at www.gnome.org." But Firefox at address  http://fritz.box.fon states also: "Internet connected since 25 min to IP address 91.37.144.190." What goes wrong here?07:37
Gneatijoev: so let me get this straight - you installed to sdc, and now grub is giving an error on boot? or is it trying to boot grub?07:38
rdw200169bullgard4, is there anything in /etc/resolv.conf?07:38
jim_pchronofire, extract EVERYTHING until you get to files and folders. no tar.gz anywhere07:38
tijoevwell the boot fails. dunno if it is grub or boot. use to my old suse distro which used grub to boot07:39
Gneabullgard4: did you re-init your network connection?07:39
chronofirejim_p alrite now i have 4 folders one gtk-2.0 then the rest are gaia4Gnome folders07:40
Gneatijoev: and you're sure you install grub to the mbr of sdc?07:40
jim_pchronofire, give me the link again to download it andi will guide you with the same file07:41
tijoevtried installing grub to /dev/sdc and /dev/sdc/sdc1/. The same result07:41
tijoevsorry /dev/sdc2/ this my root partition07:41
Gneatijoev: what is your boot order in the bios?07:41
chronofirejim_p okay thanks http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GAIA?content=6324607:42
tijoevnot sure. i did not change anything in my bios. ubuntu recognized the old suse partition at sdc. just left them alone.07:42
jim_pchronofire, do you see that GAIA folder containing a gtk2 folder in it?07:43
tijoevdoes grub go to the root partition ?07:43
chronofirejim_p yea07:43
Gneatijoev: you should check your bios and make sure that sdc (probably ide-2) is set to boot after CDROM, or however you have it setup07:43
Gneatijoev: the boot order is very important. not usually, it should get installed to the mbr of the disk, not the partition, although it can07:44
jim_pchronofire, open a terminal, or alt+f2 and type                nautilus ~/.themes              and move that GAIA folder in there07:44
Gneatijoev: but i have to go - check your boot order and make sure it's booting from the right device07:44
jim_pdpme07:44

rdw200169bullgard4, so, you know the subnet, i'm assuming, so you can ping the router?08:16
rdw200169bullgard4, if you use the dns server i mentioned, it should clear things up, if you can ping the router, and the router can surf the net08:17

|Steve|I just updated to 8.10 and a few things have broken for me. The first is that spamassassin now seems to rely on the URI perl module as per http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=6164 When I try to install URI from cpan, it fails. Any suggestions?08:27

bullgard4rdw200169: "09:06 < rdw200169> bullgard4, you should be on the interwebs now" <- What do you mean by 'interwebs'?08:29
rdw200169bullgard4, a funny way of saying 'internet'08:29
Flannel|Steve|: liburi-perl is the package that contains URI.pm08:29
rdw200169bullgard4, now, i'm off to do korean homework (yay)08:29
|Steve|Flannel: Oh. Well, it claims to already be at the latest version and yet spamassassin says, "Can't locate URI.pm in @INC"08:30
bullgard4rdw200169: Ah! Ok. Well, my router stated this since the beginning. But I could not believe it. --  Have fun! And thank you very much for your help!08:30
Flannel|Steve|: If that fixes your issue, it appears that that dependency has been skipped, if you don't mind filing a bug about it... Hmm.08:31
|Steve|Flannel: slocate URI.pm shows /usr/local/share/perl/5.8.8/URI.pm. That seems wrong.08:31
Flannel|Steve|: liburi-perl shows for me of having /usr/share/perl5/URI.pm08:32
Flannel|Steve|: something in /local/ seems very wrong indeed, yes.08:32
|Steve|/usr/share/perl5/URI is a directory for me.08:32
Flannel|Steve|: Check the output of apt-cache policy liburi-perl, does it look like its coming from the repos?08:32

Flannel|Steve|: Odd indeed.  I'm not familiar with spamassassin unfortunately.  My recommendation would be to file a bug, see what they have to say (also, try posting on the forums, ubuntuforums.org)  My next debugging step would be to get SA to output @INC, etc, etc.  Normal debugging procedures.  This may be a known problem by someone, and there may be a workaround already in place.08:39

oCean_Guest98863: did you read the link I gave? It explicit on the rtl8180, 8185 etc11:21
Deanyrbowes, glad its fixed. Wish ubuntu wouldnt hide such things tho, should be something to just add/remove hardware11:21
Guest98863yes... i just read it11:21
Guest98863so... i have to add an "x" to the end of the SSID?11:22
snuitjealso, certain packages require a patch, to backport from a newer debhelper to the 8.04 version11:22
Guest98863that's a pretty odd workaround11:22
zash_i have apparently broken network-manager, dpkg-reconfigure says that it is broken or not fully installed and i can't reinstall11:22
zash_and before that nm changed my hostname and broke stuff11:22
oCean_Guest98863: The step-by-step guide is pretty self-explainatory. If you don't like the workaround, well... don't?11:22
snuitjewriting that patch isn't a problem, i was just wondering if i'd have to script this build system entirely myself, and if so, what would be the best way to go about doing it11:22
zash_apt-get install -f gives this http://p.zash.se/fiSIIQ.txt11:22
