_Vi_On0bi: I dont think theres many RPG type channels on freenode, freenode tends to lean more towards technical topics...you might try something like searchirc.com and look for "Fantasy" or "RGP" , "D&D"00:00
KenBW2eurorail: ah, then you'll need to ask someone else sorry - i cant help00:00
euroraili dont have a cd drive. i have to install it form the hard drive...and no floppy!  so i had to try to get dos to boot a kernel and then the installer but i got stuck on the syntax of the loadlin in dos00:00
holyguyverTrentH, Yes, sorry, you must have missed it the first time I said it. Earlier Baughn had me used badblock to find out the health of my harddrive, but it took hours for the programs to answer, it was 9AM then & only now at 5PM do I have an answer, but Baughn is not in at the moment, so I was looking for someone who could tell me what this answer means?00:00
euroraildoes anyone know where i canget someone to help me with that loadlin syntax for installing ubuntu onto an older machine with no cd or floppy?00:01
eurorailAND no net connection!  ;)   i can get files on it in windows...  with an sd card00:01
johnnnyI'm getting this error while doing: sudo apt-get install vim       http://pastebin.ca/131744800:02
Gerinychhow do i apply emerald themes00:02
holyguyvereurorail, if it can take an SDcard then it isn't that old.00:02
leefmcwesolek: No, i just havent had much luck with out of the ordinary devices & linux heh00:02
TrentHholyguyver, what is wrong with your harddrive?00:02
jsfoxtoncwillu: how do i get it removed from the app dir if i cant find it in add/remove00:02
leefmcwesolek: All depends on popularity i spose00:02
holyguyverTrentH, I a year & a half ago dropped it from 4 feet onto the ground.00:02
eurorailholy:  i got a card reader to work in win98...   so i could backup and put files on it. i just cant get ubuntu installer to run... will not boot from cd and no floppy00:03
faileaseurorail: i think if you can get a disk image, and unetbootin, it should be sufficient to start up an install from windows00:03
Dante123hi all, trying to install latest pidgin and it says that not all dependencies are satisfied....pidgin 2.5.4 says this.  Any suggestions?  Also, what does sudo dpkg -i *.deb do?00:03

bobbob1016I'm running Mythbuntu 8.10, with an nVidia 8200 on the mobo and the propritary drivers.  I'm not getting a gui anymore.  I checked /var/log, and the files don't seem to have been updated for a while.  Any ideas?00:03
cwillujsfoxton, depends where it put the file.  Easiest just to hide the menu (we're talking a couple k, nothing big enough to worry about)00:03
PriceyDante123: is there a reason why you are not using the pidgin in the repositories?00:03
eurorailor can i use it to direct the installer on the disk...00:03
TrentHholyguyver: Are you having information loss? weird sound from the driver?00:04
wesolekleefmc, I think some people managed to install it properly, but when I follow their steps, I get some errors along the way... not very fluent in linux world, so I can't figure out what is wrong00:04
holyguyverTrentH, no I am not00:04
jsfoxtoncwilllu: ok...so how do i do that?00:04

Wiseguyhey guys, is it possible to install ubuntu from a USB key?00:05
holyguyverTrentH, I tested it because as you can see from my pastebin there are bad sectors & the drive is dieing from a head crunch.00:05
j_nw1hi.. just installed ubuntu 8.10 server from the CD. It is not configured for accessing repositories over the network and keeps on asking for CDROM everytime. Also, it does not have universe repos configured. Can some one please send me pointers to these repositories.. that I need to add in sources.list.. Thanks.00:05
holyguyverTrentH, Yes it was that important.00:05
Dante123Pricey I keep getting dc'ed after a few minutes.  Chatter just quits appearing on my screen although the program is still running.  The pidgin irc channel says dont bother asking for help unless you are running 2.5.4 and so I checked my version and see it is outdated...thought the new one might fix any bugs.00:06

Flannelj_nw1: No, /etc/apt/sources.list00:06
TrentHholyguyver: I was lucky to get my harddrivers in Raid 0.00:06
Dante123With my luck, you will answer my question and I will never see it because I usually get dced in five to ten minutes.  Have to restart pidgin for it to work again.  Running 8.1000:06
leefmcwesolek: Atleast a decent shot :), i was just commenting on it, nothing good/bad intended about it :)00:07
PriceyDante123: if you can't install software from pidgin.im, i suggest you ask them for support.00:07
holyguyverTrentH, that pastebin is a list of bad sectors00:07
j_nw1Flannel : The installation does not have pointers.. that i can simple uncomment.00:07

Flanneljohnnny: "when something doesn't fit, force it" isn't a good policy... ever.00:20
Baughnholyguyver: Well, that's the question. You can force a remapping by manually writing to those particular sectors, but the HD might not even have that many extra sectors (well, you'd find out), and at any rate, there'll be damage to the /heads/ too00:20

holyguyveryagga the stimulas package won't be coming in today :p00:26
lstarnesty: that's a very silly question.  If xfce were that slow and looked like gnome, then it wouldn't be xfce00:26

ortsvorsteher!sound | Caverus00:29
ubottuCaverus: 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 !MP300:29

biouserBaughn remove compiz with apt?00:30
gnubuntujohnnny: last tip from me.just sudo apt-get autoremove vim-common than apt-get install vim00:30
Baughnbiouser: There's no need to remove it, just disable it.00:30
Flanneljohnnny: Oh.... interesting.  It did.  It seems that the vim on 8.04.2 is newer than the one in the repos.  Which is whats causing this problem.00:30
Baughnbiouser: ..though removing it will certainly work.00:30
Flanneljohnnny: If you've got the CD still enabled, you'll want to remove it (although that policy says you don't).  sudo apt-get remove vim vim-tiny && sudo apt-get install vim00:31
unoppatmanpato, remove the words, quiet and splash from the menu entry in /boot/grub/menu.lst00:31
holyguyverBaughn, As said I only intend on using it for three months & storing non-important data on it for that time, & then moving it off in April when I get a new harddrive, so I am looking for the things I can do to make it somewhat usable for that time being.00:31

holyguyverBaughn, Alright, that will be my mother's windows vista which is a 15 miunte drive away00:32
patmanpatounop: thanks :)00:32
oskar-patmanpato:  remove it in the commented variants, as they are the drafts at next execution of update-grub00:33

holyguyverBaughn, as said, what if I wipe the drive, then do I have pureply gnu/linux salutions?00:34
ubottuDVA5912, please see my private message00:34
Baughnholyguyver: Sure, that would work00:34
DVA5912unop, is that a single package?00:34
holyguyverBaughn, alright, tell me what I need to do?00:34
Baughnholyguyver: Wipe the drive, and the bad blocks will get remapped (hopefully). Switch to a linux-native FS, and it'll be better able to handle further errors.00:34
unopDVA5912, read the message ... it has instructions00:34
patmanpatooskar-: you mean remove it from the uncommented plus remove it from the comments above it? so on an update-grub my settings wont be overwritten ?00:34
nwahsadudeIs there a way i can search for all other computers on the network?00:34
Baughnholyguyver: Eh. Copy off any data you want to keep, unmount the filesystem, then cat /dev/zero > <whatever device it's using> (as root).00:35
biousersudo aptitude remove compiz and compiz is no more?00:35
unopDVA5912, as for getting your site to be accessible from the outside .. it depends on the type of network connection, router, etc .. and that's somewhat beyond the scope of this channel00:35
holyguyverBaughn, will wiping the drive be as easy as simply going into gparted & reformatting?00:35
Baughnholyguyver: Then you use fdisk to create a partition, and mke3fs to make a filesystem on said partition.00:35
Baughnholyguyver: No. A "reformat", in linux, just means recreating the filesystem; it doesn't touch every sector.00:35
Baughnholyguyver: Though it'd probably /work/, there could be un-remappable bad sectors still on the drive and you wouldn't know until it's too late.00:36
Baughnholyguyver: So you need the cat /dev/zero > device-file line; that's the wipe.00:36
holyguyverBaughn, can you tell me this in pms so that I have it all down?00:36
MisterKMDid anyone think of what I can do with my webcam? And please, no !webcam.00:36

gnubuntutrix: there is a linux version of maya why you dont install that version? much better than in vb00:45

johnnnyremoved my vim-tiny from the distribution CD installation.. and installed "vim" from the web repository.00:47

_Vi_johnnny: lol i told you that long ago, but you didnt want to :P00:48
redvamp128which one vim-nox or just plain vim?00:48
Dr_willisjohnnny,  i always install vim-full  :)00:48
_Vi_johnnny: anyways nice to see it works00:48
unoppisecx, the process that started this instance .. failed to wait for it to be 'reaped' .. read more about zombies here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombie_process00:48

johnnny_Vi_: and ya.. you did, but apt-get fucked on me00:48
pisecxunop: thanks again00:48
unopjohnnny, no need for that language here00:48
_Vi_apt-get can do mean things at times00:48
johnnny_Vi_: didn't want to install it, because vim-tiny was conflicting with "vim" from the web-repo.00:49

redvamp128johnnny:  I didn't even think about vim-tiny  == thought because it was a server with no gui that vim-nox was the package you needed.00:51
johnnnyredvamp128: vim simply did it :)00:52
johnnnyshort a simple and seems light00:52
patmanpatounop: woops, didnt see the 'splash' , trying that now00:52
Izinucsluke_: you may be having this issue because you either have 1> a crt monitor that doesn't output esid info 2> a flatscreen hooked up with a vga connector instead of a dvi connector 3> something just couldn't be configured because of a lack of info00:52
_Vi_VI/M/Gvim is light, i donno bout simple, its very advanced johnnny00:53

rdw200169johnnny, you could take a shot at pida: pida.co.uk00:56
rdw200169johnnny, it's Vim + GUI, easier (some would say) than gvim00:56
johnnnyrdw200169: i'm not in X !! (console only)00:56
redvamp128johnnny:  I only suggested that earlier because you said it was a server install -- with command line only and vim didn't want to install - you said in the pastebin that it was missing dependencies-00:56
rdw200169johnnny, vim is, not pida00:56
Izinucsluke_: ok.. open a terminal (applications>accessories>terminal) and type ... sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-180 .. it may install a total of 3 packages .. watch .. if it only installs one let me know.00:56
johnnnyredvamp128: so now that "vim" works, should i still have a look at "vim-nox" ? :)00:57
Izinucsluke_: if it says that package isn't available let me know.00:57

deanMy windows antivirus tries to scan my ubuntu partition and it goes into a loop trying to process the symlinks.01:13
deanShould I just disable checking the Linux partition?01:13
Izinucsfiasco: yes to the ntfs question.. but why not use ext301:13
balzacwhat intrepid repository should I add so I can get emacs without automatic kernel updates? I have an eee pc with a special kernel which is why I can't just use the regular repositories.01:13

Izinucsfiasco: ext3 is native to ubuntu and can be read by windows with a 3rd party driver. it journaled like ntfs so it's much harder to loose info. also it's able to handle 4gig files easier.. I would question ntfs for that01:15

jimisrvroxhey guys I put ubuntu 8.10 live on my usb via unetbootin and I have a 8GB usb drive but it took up almost the entire drive when the file is only 700mb so is there a program that I can use to repartition the usb drive so I can put other stuff on there?02:32

Dr_willisel use the package manaeger tool. Not the  'browser says click here' method02:40
DasEiChaorain2:I#m not sure about vista, in xp there is an option add network place, that make samba coming up, but you should be able to browse it, too ... same network ?(ip's ??) same workgroup ??02:40

Dante123Pentium III at 1000mhz.  320 ram.  Can it run Ubuntu 8.10 or should I be looking at xubuntu or something lighter.  For a kid, so a little slower but still works should be fine...but I dont want it to be too slow if changing window manager can make a sizable difference.04:08
lstarnesmom1dad1: there are hundreds on this network (freenode) alone04:08
IndyGunFreakphiqtion: probably would want to look at samba i'd imagine..04:09
IndyGunFreak!samba > phiqtion04:09
Dr_willis<phiqtion2> ssh and winscp on windows machine - is one easy way toget some files back and forth.  - samba  to set up a 'fileserver' the windows box can access.04:09
ubottuphiqtion, please see my private message04:09
Dante123Kid has used ubuntu...so that is why I want to try that first.  But willing to try something else.04:09
nickrudDante123, the mem is the choke point; if you could stick another 256 or better 512 it would be just fine04:09
nickrudDante123, for gnome; I finally bit the bullet and bought a new machine when my 466/512 choked up04:10
Dante123nickrud i've gone through all my spare memory and that is the best that I can do that works in this machine.04:10
IndyGunFreaknickrud: lol, did the hamster finally die?04:10
* nickrud sniffs, and goes off to count his pennies04:10
Dante123you think xubuntu would make much of a difference???04:10
jootPlease take a look at this paste    http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/109235/04:10
nickrudDante123, yes it would be usable. Still wouldn't want to run openoffice and eclipse at the same time :)04:11
IndyGunFreakDante123: i don't really think so, Xfce has become just as bloated as Gnome in my opinion... its not "that" much lighter anymore.04:11
IndyGunFreakDante123: if you like ubuntu, and the ubuntu way of doing things, on a machine that old, I would google "crunchbang linux"04:11
Dante123IndyGunFreak is there another ubuntu derivative that might be better?04:11
Dante123IndyGunFreak its not for me for a kid in my class.  We have a couple of dell minis running 8.04 so he is used to ubuntu already a bit.04:12
IndyGunFreakDante123: crunchbang is basically Ubuntu 8.10, w/ openbox.. fast as can be..04:12
IndyGunFreakDante123: i see, well, the GUI would definitely be different04:12
Dante123IndyGunFreak will look into it.  Still has add/remove etc. for adding apps?04:12
IndyGunFreakDante123: yes, but the GUI isn't quite as friendly as Gnome/Xfce/KDE04:13
Dante123Kid can adjust....I'll look at it.  Maybe test livecd if they have one.04:13
IndyGunFreakDante123: but if you know your way around gnome a bit, you'll get the hang of it pretty quick, cuz you know what all the apps do, etc.04:13
IndyGunFreakDante123: indeed they do....04:13
IndyGunFreakDante123: another option, might be a vanilla debian install04:13

rstecklerI'm trying to figure out what I need to do apart from apt-get install phpmyadmin to get it running.  I'm getting a 404 from <ip>/phpmyadmin.  My gut is telling me there is something bad from the alias line in /phpmyadmin/apache2.conf, which says "alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin".  That seems odd because apache2's root is /var/www04:30
rstecklerAnyone know what magic I need here?04:30

nickrudrsteckler, you shouldn't have anything in apache2.conf about phpmyadmin, the config should be in /etc/apache2/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf04:32
=== JaZ969|AFK is now known as `Jimmy
rstecklernickrud: Thanks.  I thikn I just found a google with the same prob:  When phpmyadmin asked which server to configure, the cursor was highlighting apache2, and I hit enter.  Apparently, I need to hit <space" to select that item, then enter to configure it =/04:33
nickrudPeoplesAdvocate, it really depends on what the script is doing04:33
nickrudrsteckler, ah. I'll remember that. I'm just used to debconf I guess ;)04:33
PeoplesAdvocatenickrud: it is auto update and upgrade with -qy04:34

gluonmanWhat is the command that I must use to find the dimensions of an open window?04:34
rstecklerOr how to bring that config up with the current install?04:34
nickrudPeoplesAdvocate, you can see the install history in /var/log/dpkg.log; grep installed /var/log/dpkg.log is a usable filter04:34
Flannelrsteckler: Purge it, and whatever dependencies it has.  (looks like there's no depends that need to be removed)04:34

johnnnnyDr_willis: i want to run them as a specific user too.04:42
Dr_willisjohnnnny,  no sudo needed in rc.local either.04:42
johnnnnyDr_willis: because they are servers.04:42
Dr_willisjohnnnny,   running an init script as a user.. makes little sence.04:42
Dr_willisa 'server' can have its own uid/gid if i recall right.. the scripts get launched by root.. but the service some how changes to the proper user.04:43
johnnnnyDr_willis: you don't think it makes total sense to run a server-service that might be open to the web to be runned as another user , vs root ?04:43

jackdethI was trying out Ubuntu before in VMware and everything seemed pretty straightforward. When partitioning the virutal machine I could just use all the space. I had a 3 GB swap and the rest of the space was allocated to root ( / ). Now, I'm trying do a dual boot and have questions after the fact.04:48
lawstudentguys, i need a VERY SMALL wav player. Please give me your recommendations.04:48
ice_creamthere does not seem to be a cifs package, which seems strange04:48
ftab_is there any way to delete the sound drivers and then re-install?04:48
nyaajoljam: open a terminal and type in "top", swap will be in second from the top on the left04:48
jackdethDuring the install it suggested setting up a swap space at least 1gb and then a "home directory" which it referred to as " / " and then the rest would go to "/media/sda2".04:49
nyaajoljam sorry 5th from the top04:49
Dr_willisjackdeth,  home is not /  -> home is /home04:49
rstecklerPeoplesAdvocate: Nice.  I did just that - removed and purged the whole lamp stack and used that to get it back.  Everything is working now, and I'm not going to wonder about all the little tweaks I tried to get it running before.04:50
jackdethNow after the installation is done it appears that the whole file system was installed to " / " which is only about 3GB in size leaving the rest of that drive space free. It's my understanding that when you install new packages, they get installed into a variety of folders within that main file system. Won't that very quickly eat up all that space?04:50
ice_creami guess it's called smbfs.... although i assumed that was samba related, when i looked closer at description it appears to be smb/cifs protocol04:50
Dr_willisjackdeth,  you would mount '/' to  like /dev/sda1  and home would then be /dev/sda1/home    /home  basically..04:50
rstecklerOne weird thing, though:  After I removed and purged apache2, there still existed a /etc/apache2 folder.  <shrug>04:50
jackdethSorry for the long dissertation.04:50
ice_creamyou guys should make at least a cifs link type of package that points to smbfs04:51

rstecklerno biggy - Everything seems to be working now.04:52

jackdethThen I have /dev/sda4 with a mountpoint of " / " which is 3.7GB.04:53

ice_creammaybe make the big ext3 mounted on /home04:54
lawstudenti have the most basic eeepc04:54
jackdethIs this normal?04:54
Dr_willisjackdeth,  you could mount  the  sda2 to /home in the installer if you wanted.    but the installer will want the info.. not gparted.04:54
apolawstudent: Good04:54
lawstudentapo, even non-gui is finee04:54

Dr_willisjackdeth,  I normally have (windows) (/) (/home) and (swap)04:54
n8tuserjackdeth -> thats normal04:55
jackdethSo are you saying I should reinstall?04:55
apolawstudent: Heh, when somebody asks for small, I won't consider GUI apps04:55
Dr_willisjackdeth,  i dont know what you are doing.. if you dident tell the installer to use /dev/sda2 as /home - then its not being used as /home04:55
n8tuserjackdeth may as well,04:55
ice_creammy laptop is setup   windows, /boot,  / ,  (shared vfat), swap04:55

jackdethThat gparted thingie isn't letting me resize / and I'm not sure why.04:58
lawstudentapo, do u know whihc is smaller.04:58

jackdethOhhhhhh.......I see.04:59
knowonejoljam, 2 ways First you could make a swap file directions at http://www.linux.com/feature/113956 or you could add a second swap partition or resize your current one04:59

Dr_willisBenj79,  it was secure enough befor. :) only that user had rights to get to root. :)05:06
FlannelBenj79: That's correct.  Ubuntu doesn't use the root account, and we don't recommend you enable it (and yes, that means having an account with admin privledges)05:06

cellofellowmeoblast: try `find /path/to/directory -empty -name 'searchterm'05:39
ShakedownThanks. I'm in the process of removing old and installing new.  I'll let you know if I have some path issues05:39

ShakedownThanks. Odd rmdir wouldn't have a similar flag05:42
meoblastbrolin, the FTP server wouldnt even show it when i selected show hidden in nautilus05:42
FlannelShakedown: rm -r will suffice.  -f shouldn't normally need to be used.05:42
meoblastbrolin, maybe i have my FTP configured to do that... as i just modded the default config05:42
phrostbiteI am trying to view an mp4 file from my phone but I get a video that skips a whole bunch and there is no sound. I tried vlc and the default movie player that comes with ubuntu. I also downloaded a mpeg pack thing fromt he file list.05:42

werdnum6.06 was an LTS, IIRC05:47

blackenedohhai: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-To-Install-OpenOffice-org-3-0-in-Ubuntu-8-10-96449.shtml06:48
prince_jammysItacious: it's not in the msttfonts package?06:48
ItaciousLucida Grande is the main font in OS X's interface beautiful, it is.06:49
blackenedItacious: pretty sure you have to buy a license for lucida grande, or grab it from another OS install you might have06:49
blackenedI've never found a legitimate version of it on the web, not that it's not out there06:49
Itaciousblackened, i know you need a license.06:50

FoxBlitzzI personally prefer my interfaces sharp and practical.06:51
FoxBlitzzI don't mind an interface looking nice, but it shouldn't harm the practicality in any way06:51
Itaciousprince_jammys: I do not know if OEM licenses apply for msttfonts, and i don't want to download it whithout one.06:51
FoxBlitzzEG. An interface hiding information to make other elements appear larger on the screen06:51
tacosarecoolanyone help me?06:52
FoxBlitzzItacious: OEM?06:52
FoxBlitzzHeh, I just took my Windows font folder and dumped it into my Linux install06:52
prince_jammystacosarecool: what's that URL doing in the command-line?06:53
ItaciousAlso, msttfonts may include segioe ui, etc. (vista fonts) which i don't have vista. It's a big legal mess. So i'm not downloading at this time.06:53
tacosarecoolIt's not06:53
prince_jammystacosarecool: what are you trying to install? avant-window navigator?06:53
tacosarecoolBut the command in the paste06:53

FoxBlitzzI just can't work without text labels, man.06:54
ardchoilleI'd like to install a dock launcher that doesn't require compositing. I can't seem to get rid of the black bg in simdock. Any advice?06:55
Dr_willisardchoille,  wbar dosent - i think.06:55
tacosarecoolsimdock is terrible06:55
tacosarecoolit says so on linuxowns.com06:55
ardchoilleDr_willis: how do I install wbar and wbarconf?06:55
Dr_willistacosarecool,  so it has to be true06:55
prince_jammysardchoille: there's also kooldock06:55
Dr_willisardchoille,  no idea. :) check the repos, check PPA, check the homepage06:55
jeeves_Mosshow do I track down why compiz keeps locking up and/or cracshing my system06:56
ardchoilleprince_jammys: kooldock pulls in a bunch of kde junk06:56
prince_jammysardchoille: yes06:56
nyaatacosarecool: try installing it through applications > add/remove programs06:57
jeeves_Mosshow do I track down why compiz keeps locking up and/or cracshing my system06:57
nyaatacosarecool: search for it under avant, its there for me in 8.1006:57
tacosarecooljust search for awn06:58
jeeves_Mosshow do I track down why compiz keeps locking up and/or cracshing my system06:58

brodymcdcould someone pretty please with sugar on top help me connect to my windows xp share with 8.10? I would be SO grateful... :)07:02
Dr_willisbrodymcd,  in the gnome file manager - i have to enter the full path to the remote share.. for some reason..07:02
Dr_willisbrodymcd,  as in --> smb://fileserver/sharename/07:03
JustinBeairdalso do you have firestarter or ufw runing?07:03
JustinBeairdblocking it07:03

brodymcddrwillis - how do I know what the full path is?07:03
sukiminnadoes anyone  know how can i capture a pict from webcam in ubuntu8.1007:03
ohhaiHow do I get Windows/Mac fonts installed?07:04
skate2why is apache2 installed by default in ubuntu 8.10 but there's no httpd.conf file?07:04
ohhaiSpecifically, for openoffice.07:04
sukiminnai heard there is issues with webcam support in 8.10 is it true?07:04
nickrudskate2, in debian/ubuntu the http.conf is built on the fly from /etc/apache2/sites-enabled, mods-enabled, conf.d/*, and a couple others07:05
=== Kwitschibo_ is now known as Kwitschibo
nickrudskate2, it's done that way to allow other packages to easily add their configs; for example phpmyadmin drops a link in conf.d/ and poof, it's configured.07:06
nickrudskate2, a2enmod a2dismod a2ensite a2dissite are useful commands07:06
skate2so what do i edit to configure apache?07:06
nickrudohhai, sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts07:06
nickrudskate2, what are you modifying?07:07
nickrudskate2, or, what mods to you want to make07:07
brodymcdhow can I manually enter the path for samba share?07:07
skate2nickrud i want to configure php file extention support07:08
nickrudskate2, the general answer is add some config file to conf.d/ , and restart apache. But take a look at mods-available/* , if there's a mod there then just run sudo a2enmod php5 and restart apache07:08
ardchoilleDr_willis: Got wbar installed, thanks for the info :)07:09
nickrudskate2, it makes sense, once you've looked through the files. Makes admin very easy07:10
Bossmanbetain my .screenrc is there a variable to set the background color in "hardstatus string" to green?07:10
skate2is there a keyboard shortcut to bring up the gnome system menu for 'applications', 'places', 'system' menus?07:11
werdnumcwillu: neat, I didn't know that.07:12
sukiminname too07:12
danes_how can I install my wireless card ipw2200? It is not recognized, should I use ndiswrapper?07:12
nickrudtry alt-f7 and alt-f8 , very useful sometimes07:12
Adrian2MiL8hi ,how can change the start priority in the rcS.d of firestarter and networking items ? anyone known ?07:13
jsj0nescwillu: thanks...even works on my HP mini 1000 (w/ HP's Ubuntu UI)07:13
kevdogAdrian2MiL8: You mean the run level?07:13
nickrudAdrian2MiL8, why would you want to do that? A lot of services have priorities based on those values07:13
=== nicholas is now known as Guest82142
sukiminnanickrud: i juz hold alt and click the window:)07:14
nickrudsukiminna, my mouse broke once. Very Useful :)07:14
Adrian2MiL8kevdog> hmm ...not ..the problem is a error on boot process because firestarter exit with error 207:14
=== Guest82142 is now known as tacosarecool
* nickrud will never admit it was because he threw it across the room because he died in wow07:14
sukiminnanickrud: yep come to think of it for emergency very neat07:15
Adrian2MiL8kevdog>this is because firestarter try to load before networking up the interfaces07:15
Adrian2MiL8i need change networking form 40 to 65 and firestarter from 65 to 40 but update-rc.d not accpet me the command07:16
kevdogAdrian2MiL8: So you could try adding a sleep statement in the file, or use the program update-rc.d that would change the run level for you -- in fact that is the recommended way07:16
danes_any one knows how can I configure the ipw2200 wireless card on a laptop?07:16
kevdogdanes_: Be more specific -- configure the driver or connect to a network07:16
Adrian2MiL8<kevdog>i try with update-rc.d firestarter S 40 but not work07:17
hlfshellHey - how can I prevent a program from starting up on startup? I keep getting an error message due to not having a program that Ijust wanna get rid of....07:17
ubottuTo add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot07:17
kevdogAdrian2MiL8: What error do you get -- or what does it say in the logs about the error?07:17

Dr_willisa931bw,  if you want to learn/use lisp that is..:)07:22
hlfshellIndyGunFreak -  i think it already is...07:22
IndyGunFreakhlfshell: obviously not completely, go through synaptic package manager, find anything w/ evolution, and uninstall it.07:22

Dr_willisAdrian2MiL8,  they go from high to low...    S01policykit     first  S99XXXXXXX last07:34
Adrian2MiL8.the problem is a error on boot process because firestarter exit with error 207:34
kevdognyaa:  Again you need to be more specific what you want to do or tell me about an equivalent windows program07:34
Dr_willisor was that low to high? :) heh i forget... they go in numerical order.07:34
Adrian2MiL8this si because firestarter try to load before networking up the interface07:34
rwwAdrian2MiL8: S01 is first, S99 is last.07:34
kevdogAdrian2MiL8: I have no idea why you are using Firestarter with ufw around!07:35

nyaakevdog: there's a guy that wants me to see his dock and fix it, graphical things like that.  So I'd need to be able to see his desktop07:36
Adrian2MiL8<Dr_willis>i have S40networking and S65firestarter and i want put in reverse S40firestarter and S65networking07:36
kevdognyaa:  So you want a remote desktop program I am gathering?07:36
Dr_willisAdrian2MiL8,  s65 starts AFTER the S40  - so i  think you may be   incorrect in your diagonisis.. you could set firestarter to be S99firestarter07:37
rwwIndyGunFreak: http://paste.ubuntu.com/109273/07:37
Adrian2MiL8<Dr_willis>but the problem is what update-rc.d firestarter S 40 not make the change07:37
nyaakevdog: yeah, I have remote desktop viewer, but does he have to have it too?07:37
kevdogVNC is probably the easiest -- but yes -- the server needs to be installed on the host computer07:37
Dr_willisAdrian2MiL8,  just chang the name of the file07:37

evilGUII have a question my router seems to block port 22 and I can't ssh via my IP so is there anything else I have to do to secure SSH? I just want to use it on my network07:41
kevdogI thought rcS commands got started with every run level -- but maybe not.  That is why its recommended to use update-rc.d to not screw some things up.  Maybe you cant make that change since firestarter is running!07:42
Dr_williskevdog,  I though you copied the link FROM rcS.d to the proper runlevel rc#.d directory07:42
Adrian2MiL8<Dr_willis>the whole mess is with firestarter return a exited error 2 on boot process because ( i think ) he trying loading before networking up the interface07:42

I am setting up a new computer and I need to run Windows for work/school, but would like Ubuntu as my main OS, so I could use some Virtualization software that can boot a physical partition from Ubuntu.

JoeSchmo_Hey all...  I have a question, and I have been reading online for days and have no answer.  I have a fresh Ubuntu 8.10 install on my notebook.  Everything seems to be working great, except that my machine crashes horribly when I try to logoff.  I can shut down / restart just fine, but logoff causes the screen to go to a terminal, showing a "trace" and a memory dump, but I am unable to recover from it.  ctrl+alt+backspace (x2) wont even get me08:02
JoeSchmo_ out of it.  My Caps lock LED flashes, and I cannot do anything but hold down the power button.    So, my question:  is there a way to capture the system trace and memory dump to a text file?  There is so much scrolling on the screen that I am unable to get any useful information when the event occurs.08:02

Dr_willisstooj,  try 'fb' to bring it back to front? or bg/fg command perhaps08:07
Flannelstooj: jobs, then %# (where # is the job number) will restart it.  You'll have to ctrl-c (if its downloading and not installing, you'll be OK)08:07

Myxbbalrog__: killall it or fg and then ctrl+c08:07
cwillutenX, buttons, windows, mousey things08:07
charlesju_So the issue is that running a shell script as "sh {script}" or "dash {script}" bypasses the "#!/bin/bash" line, thus causing it to fail. But it can be invoked as "sh -c {script}" or "dash -c {script}", and the "#!/bin/bash" *is* correctly handled to invoke the bash shell.08:08

cwilludarkblue_B, synaptic, sources, make sure -updates is enabled08:18
cwillusynaptic, repositories, updates tab08:18
cwilluintrepid security and intrepid-updates need to be enabled (unless you only want security updates, in which case, you don't want the .5 version08:18
darkblue_Bohh, I had "important security updates" checked, but nothing else08:19
tenXcwillu: either you dumb, deaf and/or blind or wise and got me on ignore08:19
cwilludarkblue_B, there's your problem08:19
MethinXwhat are pre-released updates (itrepid proposed)? do I need them? will they harm my computer?08:20

FlanneltenX: Please remain polite08:20
FlannelMethinX: You should not enable -proposed, no.08:20

InsectoidI am getting the output of Zack's lsmod, a line a second.  It is quite noisy.08:21
cwilluMethinX, unless you need something specific from it, or merely like dealing with random stuff breaking occasionally, don't enable it :p08:21
tenXcwillu: so do you know?08:21
syockitalright, got it via getty 3840008:21
cwillutenX, maybe I do, and I don't want to tell you?08:21
cwillutenX, more likely, I don' :p08:21
cwillunot quite sure what you meant about 'won't switch to the true tty'08:21
tenXcwillu: hmm i would have gone with the first option08:21
cwillu...because then you could still squeeze an answer out of me :p08:22
darkblue_Boh geez.. well its still 8.3.1 with updates checked.. I suppose I need "Propsed updates".. BUT I now see that dev libs was at 8.2, while a rash of other things is at 8.3  :-/08:22
darkblue_Bchanging dev libs08:22
tenXcwillu: well i see i dont know how to describe it better. switch from X to true text mode tty. via strg+alt+fX08:22
cwilludarkblue_B, "sorry for assuming ubuntu broke something, when really I broke it myself"?  :)08:22
tenXcwillu: the switch in case it doesnt work08:22
cwilluoh, the sysrq line08:23
cwilludon't know it off hand, but you should be able to find it searching for magic sysrq08:23
ubottuIn an emergency, you may be able to shutdown cleanly and reboot by holding down Alt+PrintScreen and typing, in succession, R, E, I, S, U and B. For an explanation, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_SysRq_key08:23
darkblue_Bwell almost.. I'll take .66 of t08:23
cwilluthere's a few others that are relevant08:23
* cwillu sticks the remaining .34 on darkblue_B's back as he walks away08:23
tenXsysrq line some addition to xserver conf?08:23
cwillutenX, well, there's c-a-backspace, which simply kills xorg completely, but if ctrl-alt-f1 doesn't work, c-a-backspace probably won't either08:24
cwillusysrq is handled in kernel08:24
darkblue_Bwell the only 2 checks left are "Pre Release Updates" and "Unsupported updates:08:24
darkblue_Bthat sounds kind of sketchy.. but I need those ?08:25
puremichaelhi, i've got some problems with evolution, e.g. 'unread' shows mit 100emails unread, total -63508:25
cwilluprerelease is testing stuff, so that people can check bugfixes without having to do anything special with packages08:25
tenXcwillu: of course i am familiar with c-a-b as well. just wondering what switch to switch. and how can it depend on the kernel?08:25
cwillubackports is for the real hardcore that like their long-term support, but not enough to actually use it as intended :p08:25
cwillutenX, don't think there's any option for xorg.conf, although "man xorg.conf" and "/<search><enter>nN" will solve many woes08:26
darkblue_B.. and , I am still not finding postgres 8.3.5 though...08:26

* cwillu pokes tenX with a pointy stick08:27
darkblue_Bone more choice.. a popup that says LTR only or normal releases08:27
darkblue_Breloading now after choosing "normal" from "LTR"08:27
tenXcwillu: what is a pointy stick if i may ask08:27
cwilludarkblue_B, normal releases will offer an upgrade to intrepid08:27
accura2khow can I access a shared network folder from another computer in console?08:28
cwillutenX, it's a wooden stick, with a sharpened point08:28
cwilluabout 8 feet long08:28
cwilluaccura2k, gvfs-<tab>08:28
accura2kcwillu, thanks08:28
tenXcwillu: you should start to use the metric system08:28
cwilluaccura2k, you can also deal with normal mount's, but this is easier imo08:28
tenXcwillu: and adjust stick size08:29
darkblue_Boh ok, Mark All Upgrades just did it08:29
darkblue_Bpressing go08:29
cwillutenX, I like metric just fine.  however, stick sizes are traditionally measured in feet.  (btw, we should probably continue this in #ubuntu-offtopic, if you feel the need to continue :p)08:29
darkblue_Bcwillu: yay.. thx08:30

nightrid3rrenatka: sudo apt-get installlanguage-support-ru09:51

ftabI need both skype & media players :(09:52
gordonjcpftab: well, I've never got it to work09:52
ftabstatic skype works with OSS09:52
cwillujim_p, alsa is the driver architecture, and it's also an api that people use.  Pulseaudio uses alsa to talk to the hardware, and it supports an alsa layer for apps that try to talk directly to the alsa api's09:52
renatka<jim_p> first - context menu... it's biggest trouble09:52

jim_pcwillu, here read the proof that pa is not alsa at all         http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/pulseaudio09:54
cwillujim_p, "in a typical installation scenario under linux, the user configures alsa to use a virtual device provided by Pulseaudio.  Thus, applications using ALSA will output sound to PulsAudio, which then uses ALSA itself to access the real sound card"09:54
cwilluftab, is pulseaudio installed?09:55
gordonjcpftab: put it this way, I'm hoping that for Jaunty the Ubuntu devs realise the terrible mistakes of Intrepid09:55

tenXftab: at times it can depend on your soundcard also though. some cards are a pain10:03
