ubuntuthe total of the files exceeds 100gb...00:01
luke_ActionParsnip, I followed Arrs advice, got a CD of that Super Grub Disk, now was about to run the repair but it said something about backing up my mbr00:01

ubuntuproblem is photorec doesn't exactly give you a lot to work with as far as filenames go00:10
ActionParsnip!recover | ubuntu00:10
ubottuubuntu: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel00:10

Gtwyi am trying to get a vnc server installed to do the following.. spent a good bit of time on this today and am out of answers00:10
ActionParsnipubuntu: foremost is ok00:10
ubunturudzaki33: yep broke00:10
ActionParsnipubuntu: the filenames are stored in the FAT so will be lost if its corrupted00:10
rww!vnc | Gtwy: have you tried the VNC howto?00:11
Gtwyi want the vnc service to start when the computer starts00:11
ubottuGtwy: have you tried the VNC howto?: VNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX00:11

robfbut here is my wonder....00:12
break19here's a useful question.. I have only IDE drives... so why is ubuntu referring to them as scsi drives?00:12
robfif I have an iso of this livecd00:12
GtwyActionParsnip: already got it working but after a reboot i have to MANUALLY start tightvncserver i cant get it to start automatically00:12
ActionParsnipkabukan1: you'd need to tar them to span the disk sizes and burn the tar files, then untar them00:12
robfcan I remove this physical one,  and mount the iso?00:12
ActionParsnipGtwy: does your pc autologin?00:12
GtwyActionParsnip: no and i feel that would be insecure00:12
ActionParsnipGtwy: ok just checking00:12

karamazov:S01:12
mikebotjrib: And I'm wondering what (if any) software in ubuntu can make that change.01:12
prince_jammyskaramazov: sudo runs commands in your PATH. 'cd' is built into the shell. sudo can't run cd01:12

drzinthen how do i disable the KVM02:33
Dillizarquicksilver_,  your WEP doesnt work on the lap top? maybe is hardware02:33
jtajibullgard4: web safe colors... no one too much worries about them anymore btw, hardly anyone is still running 8-bit color02:33
rstecklerIs it just me, or is it way more reliable to install stuff (tomcat6, for example) from the official site instead of apt-get.02:33

wolternightrid3r, i think i have to reinstall02:34
nightrid3rwolter: seems like your card is not supported by the driver,02:34
quicksilver_Dillizar: So my neighbors dont use my wireless. The issue isnt hardware or "why use wep" its that it just doesn't work with 8.10.02:34
rstecklerJack_Sparrow: This is from the main repo.02:34
Jack_Sparrowrsteckler have you looked for bug reports on it02:35

wpgmbI just fried my mobo... Asus P5N32-SLI SE Deluxe (Intel 775).  If I purchase a new board and transfer my drives and other h/w to it, will I encounter many problems booting the system back up into Ubuntu 8.04 (64 bit)?02:35
wolternightrid3r, it has to be.. i downloaded the driver for geforce 8m series, and my card is 8600m gt02:35
bullgard4jtaji: Thank you for anwering. I agree that this only a problem for some special equipment.02:35
Jack_Sparrowrsteckler It is possible to install something else manually that mess's this program up02:35
wolternightrid3r, i think i will perform an uninstall02:35
rstecklerJack_Sparrow: I've been through ~6 problems with the tomcat install.  Google keeps helping me get through one at a time, but it's getting a bit cumbersome.02:35
Cewex_Cute    02:36
Dillizarquicksilver_,  sorry dunno i had more problems with 8.10 thats why i am on 7.10 :D but why dont you try the forum there are a lot of problems with 8.10 maybe some one has the same one02:36
rstecklerOr, I could just wget and install from the official tomcat site and everything works out of the box02:36
quicksilver_Dillizar: Ok, thanks02:36
Jack_Sparrowrsteckler Then do that02:36
nightrid3rwolter: uninstall for now and check nvidia site for other drivers or mail nvidia support02:36
rstecklerFor sure.  I'm just curious if that's a common situation though.  Is it generally considered more reliable to get from official sites, as opposed to apt-get installing stuff?02:37
foxjazzIs there a way to use file browser as root02:37
foxjazz?02:37

antonehenry>Need help with iPod + Podcast + Banshee -  anybody got any experience with an iPod not being able to sync Podcasts?  Thanks!!02:37

carnageanyone know where the display resolutions are stored other than xorg.conf?  mine in stuck on the wrong one and it seems to be independant of the stuff in xorg.conf02:37
Jack_Sparrowfoxjazz dont use that command02:37
quicksilver_jtaji: Im not sure. But its not working on 2 different wireless computers. How do I check what the device is?02:38
Jack_Sparrowfoxjazz gksudo nautilus   is much safer02:38
Dillizarquicksilver_,  try Kwlan i think it will work on gnome with no problems02:38
rww!gksudo | PB_G302:38
Jack_Sparrow!gksudo02:38
ubottuPB_G3: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:38
Jack_Sparrowfoxjazz gksudo nautilus   is still a very dangerous and unforgiving command..02:38

Jack_Sparrowdanes_ sudo mkdir /media/drive4you then sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/drive4you substitute your drive for sda102:50

Ahadiel!checkinstall | srid04:09
ubottusrid: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages.

AhadielAssuming it has the same deps as the python version in the repos.04:11
Ahadielsrid, ^04:11
_Vi_how come some apps you install will ask you a 'y/n' if you want to install it or not, and others, just install without asking?04:11
ardchoillesrid: To be honest, I stopped compiling things long ago, the Ubuntu repos are well stocked. I follow this path: 1. check the repos; 2, look for an ubuntu .deb; 3. compile04:11
jtaji_Vi_: it asks when it needs to install packages beyond what you've specified04:11
_Vi_ah makes sense thanks jtaji04:11
sridardchoille: ok. I had this requirement when I noticed that ubuntu repos does not have python 2.6. so i was thinking maybe gentoo would have helped me here04:12

hubarhmm Does anyone know? @@04:12
CyLjrib: I'm not pressing the compose key, and I get ḿ all the time I typ '+m04:12
ardchoillesrid: you can always compile, but beware that the package manager won't manage things if you compile and you need to resolve deps yourself04:12
rdw200169_Vi_, stuff coming from the main repo doesn't ask, i think04:13
Ahadielsrid, If you want a somewhat source-friendly distro try Archlinux04:13
sridardchoille: so apt-get build-dep is no better than doing a 'make' and 'make install' by hand?04:13
Ahadielsrid, No, apt-get build-dep grabs the dependencies for the specified package.04:13
ardchoillesrid: you can't always guarantee that the deps will be in the repos04:14

Ahadielsrid, hrm, seems to requrie alot of work https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BootToRAM04:17
_Vi_!ask | Guest3438304:17
ubottuGuest34383: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)04:17
Ahadielsrid, I know in other distros you could just append "toram" or "copy2ram" to the boot line.04:17
sridAhadiel: I vaguely remember doing that in knoppix once upon a time04:17
CyLjrib: Well, if you thing this would help resolving the issue, I'll go trough it, but all he keys are on th right place on the keyboard (I actually do own a US keyboard, although I type in portuguese), the problema is the compositions of deade keys04:17
Ahadielsrid, If you have a spare USB stick ( > 512 ) you can put the arch installer on it04:18
sridAhadiel: anyway, I'm almost done with installing ubuntu on my HD (after screwing up the freebsd installation). I will install sawfish and keep a minimal interface04:18
Ahadielsrid, k04:18
sridAhadiel: I tried that too (put arch img in 8gb usb stick.. but grub failed with error 17)04:18
ardchoillesrid: Have you looked at fluxbox?04:19
jvaijtaji ahhh thanks! let me see if i can burn it to a disk a experiment with this04:19
Ahadielsrid, Strange.04:19
sridardchoille: yes, but the reason for choosing sawfish is that it is extensible in lisp (and I myself have some lisp scripts for sawfish)04:19
Ahadielsrid, How did you copy the img over? dd?04:19

d0netsFNok i will deal with 1000, but where did the other 70 gigs go04:26
d0netsFN70 gigs is lots of space...04:26
sridd0netsFN: my guess is that according to manufacturer, 1 TB = 1000x1000x1000 bytes. also - some data is wasted as unused partitions.04:26

whatevif i sudo mkdir /media/usb/ will that directory remain there forever so i can mount files to it?04:37
ardchoillewhatev: unless you rm it04:38
rdw200169xnevermore, you also need a subnet declaration in your dhcp3 config that matches the network assigned to the interface it listens on04:38
rdw200169xnevermore, i.e., you static assign 192.168.0.1/24 to the interface, then declare a range of 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254.  that would work04:39
rdw200169xnevermore, then tell the dhcp3 server that the gateway is 192.168.0.104:39
rdw200169xnevermore, /24 is = 255.255.255.0 subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.0.25504:39

foxjazzhow do you make the screen saver not lock the computer04:40
robffoxjazz: turn off lock timer04:40
rdw200169xnevermore, the ip range in the dhcp3 config *has* to fit inside the subnet assigned to the interface04:40
rdw200169xnevermore, but, on a side note, you can have several networks assigned to the same interface (not ifconfig, iproute2), and use any *ONE* of them for dhcp04:41

TraceRoutewould it be possible to make a symbolic link to /dev/sda1 (NTFS) partition and have ushare to be able to access files from it?04:43
rdw200169Tully12, you've installed nvidia-glx, or newer?04:43
foxjazzsorry wrong OS04:43
Tully12got 180 off nvidia site04:43
rdw200169Tully12, check /var/log/Xorg.0.log04:44
tritiumTully12: 180 is in the repositories.  Use the ubuntu packages.04:44
Tully12under the restricted drivers only 177 is there04:44
rdw200169Tully12, but the Xorg logs are a little tricky; go to that directory, and read the Xorg file with the most recent timestamp using ls -l04:44
Fire_LordTraceRoute, a symbolic link to it? wouldnt you want to have ushare access /dev/sda1 mounted somewhere? like /media/windows?04:44
rdw200169Tully12, chances are, there's a kernel module mismatch04:44
Fire_LordTraceRoute, unless i am confused what ushare is supposed to do04:44
jtajiarooni: install that package, then check the config file /etc/cron-apt/config, man page, etc..  here's the description http://packages.ubuntu.com/intrepid/cron-apt04:45
rdw200169jtaji, good tip!04:45

D-Boduring 8.10 install a package "startup-tasks" was corrupt.04:46
D-BoWill this hurt the install, and can I install it after it completes?04:47
tritiumTully12: precisely why we recommend using ubuntu-packaged drivers.04:47
Tully12i see "Warning couldnt open module type1"04:47
somethingtodoD-Bo:  startup-tasks - "This package contains the definitions of tasks essential for normal startup of a Linux system."04:48
rdw200169Tully12, the most common is 'GLX Module is a different version from so and so' that is a dead give-away as to what your problem is04:48

rdw200169berbsd, it's a feature of the synaptic driver; try 'man synaptics' to learn more05:02
grumpy_I've got a friends hard disk and she expects me to put the latest ubuntu on it so all she had to do is put it back in and hit the power. How do I do that? Perhaps an url to a howto?05:02
rdw200169berbsd, you're looking for something like 'double finger tap = right click'05:02
goblinit is, but i want to resize it so that i can establish another partition for another os.05:02
Fire_Lordgoblin, what other os?05:03
cwillugrumpy_, install it (8.10, or wait a couple months for 9.04 to come out), install ubuntu-restricted-extras, and the video/wireless if they're not already, and then you're pretty much done05:03
nightrid3rgoblin: ever try to change a tire while driving, it will not work, boot from your ubuntu cd and use that05:03
goblinsorry, but its windows05:03
Fire_Lordgoblin, if its windows you are going to have some trouble with it...05:03
cwillugrumpy_, (-restricted-extras will install the mp3 codecs, flash, etc)05:03
berbsdrdw200169: I am looking to map the right command key to show the contextual menu. I don't want to do it with the touchpad only05:03
bonez45anyone running with Intel 82815 video? I have that on one machine here and can't get more than 800x600 resolution..05:04
Babayidoes anyone know how to monitor the cpu utilization of each application on each processor?05:04
Fire_Lordgoblin, yeah, that tends to cause issues with bootloaders and stuff... if there is nothing important on your ubuntu, i recommend the easy way...05:04
chirankaHey, I have 8.10 and my xserver version is 1:7.4~5ubuntu3, at various times (especially noticeable when using a curses program such as vim,) the screen fails to update correctly, is this a known issue?05:04
bonez45I found the .rpm on intel's site.. did the alien thing.. installed it from a newly minted .deb.. still no higher res...05:04
Fire_Lordgoblin, basicly, install windows on the whole drive, then install ubuntu again...05:04
rdw200169berbsd, oh, you mean the mac-way05:04
rdw200169berbsd, i dunno then05:04
chirankaI am using a compiz currently, pretty much a vanilla install.05:04
goblinoh. is that the only way?05:05
chirankausing compiz*05:05
Fire_Lordgoblin, no, not the only way, just the easiest05:05
cwilluchiranka, what video card?05:05
FirefisheAsking again as I got booted:  What does quiet mean in this line in menu.lst?:  # defoptions=quiet splash05:05
berbsdrdw200169, yes, you are correct. I used to do it with xmodmap, but I wonder if this is still the right method on  intrepid and jaunty05:05
Fire_Lordgoblin, you can do the way you are thinking, but you will need to install the boot loader again from the ubuntu cd after the windows install05:05
nightrid3rgoblin: grab the gparted iso from sourceforg.net05:05
ohhaiI'm running 8.10, having compiled the latest ALSA driver, I have the input that comes to my Mic streamed directly to my headphones, with the actual system sounds/music I play being kinda muffled in the background. I was fiddling with the alsamix lately, so maybe there's a way to fix this, that is rever the possible damage I might have done?05:05
goblinis that hard way explainable, because i do have things on my ubuntu. not much but i do care about them.05:05
grumpy_cwillu, i'm at a loss on how to physically install it. I can connect to her sata drive to my laptop but when I don't know what to do from there...05:05
Fire_Lordgoblin, and then you will have to add an entry for windows05:05
cwilluFirefishe, how much output it dumps to the screen (which you won't see if splash is on anyway :p)05:05
rdw200169berbsd, i don't see why not, you should just be able to use your config file for xmodmap05:06
chirankacwillu, pretty sure it's an intel, but it might be an nvidia, let me check.05:06
cwillugrumpy_, oh, you don't have the actual machine?05:06

Fire_Lordcwillu, not for me..05:06
Firefishecwillu:  So if I just remove the splash, and leave the quiet part, save the file, then do -- sudo grub-update --  I should have my splash screen turned off?05:06
ryanpriorArrick: You're welcome to help add factoids. Ubottu knows a lot.05:06
d0netsFNwhats the best way to format an ntfs partition in ubuntu05:07
d0netsFNin gparted, the option for ntfs is greyed out05:07
Fire_Lordgoblin, yeah, its not that its to hard, just long and confusing to explain05:07

Arrickryanprior, yeah, i've added them before and then it was locked down so nobody but authorised people were able to add to it05:07
goblinOk. thank you Fire_Lord05:07
rdw200169Tully12, heh, you could have just used the pastebin service...05:07
cwillugrumpy_, well, you can install it (just run the live cd, and point it at the sata drive to install, assuming you can plug it in via sata), but you won't be able to do anything with the graphics driver if you need it05:07
Fire_LordArrick, what are you trying to do?05:07
ryanpriord0netsFN: Why do you want to format something NTFS?05:07
d0netsFNstorage for all my os's05:07
cwilluFirefishe, if you want to see the 'normal' linux bootup, get rid of quiet as well05:07
d0netsFNits my mythtv drive mostly05:08
ryanpriord0netsFN: The only reason I can think of would be for Windows compatability, in which case you could just use Microsoft's formatting utility.05:08

cwillu[TK]D-Fender, there's a ppa repository with the nvidia 180 driver packaged up for ubuntu, give me a sec to find it05:08
[TK]D-Fendercwillu: chiranka : Ok... plan B?05:08
grumpy_cwillu, I tried booting my laptop off the iso cd thinking I could install ubuntu using the software but it did not see the /dev/sdb drive as a drive for installation.05:08
AzharnHaving problems installing eggdrop on a fresh install of kubuntu. It says it requires tcl, but I did "sudo apt-get install tcl" and "sudo apt-get install tcllib" and it still can't find it when I do ./configure for the eggie. Suggestions?05:09

rdw200169Bossmanbeta, no, i think firefox refuses to run 2 instances of itself using the same configurations. i.e. the .mozilla directory05:28
morbidnightrid3r: is there some way that my solution is to change the browser, like opera or netscape?05:28
Azharnkevdog: how do I get the developmental files? lol I'm not used to ubuntu's commands.05:28
rdw200169Bossmanbeta, so, if you use a different regular user, it should work fine05:28
Bossmanbetardw200169, but one is running locally, the other over an ssh session05:28
tritiumAzharn: you install the -dev version of the library package05:28
nightrid3rmorbid: give it a try, it might work05:28
Azharnmysqllib-dev ?05:28
kevdogAzharn: Let me look and see what I can find --- Its the apt-cache search command05:28
tritiumAzharn: apt-cache search for it.  That's likely not the right name.05:29
Tully12OMFG rdw200169 IT WORKED!05:29
CoJaBoIs it possible to change resolution and refresh rate in Xubuntu?05:29
rdw200169Bossmanbeta, applications don't care where they are running; the same user logging in over ssh or tty is the same thing according to linux; they all use the hidden folders in the /home directory for configurations05:29
Bossmanbetardw200169, I just tested it gksudo works.... but if I try to run it as a regular user which = the local username, it fails... so that helps some... any way around forcing a run of the application as a diff user?05:29
kevdogstandalone .swf player?05:29
tritiumAzharn: "apt-cache search libmysql" should find it.05:29
rdw200169Bossmanbeta, just login as a different user; or create another user, su to them in the terminal, then run firefox05:30
rdw200169Bossmanbeta, gksudo is bad, bad, bad! don't run firefox as root, shame!05:30
cwilluBossmanbeta, you can't run two firefox's against the same profile at the same time05:30
Bossmanbetardw200169, it was just a test :)05:30
Azharntritium: "libmysqlclient15-dev" sound right to you?05:30
cwilluBossmanbeta, what are you trying to do?05:30
whatevi ran sudo chmod 755 /media/usb but it sitll has the permisssions drwx------ how is that possible?05:30
TheMusicGuySomebody please help...this is driving me crazy:  I keep getting logged out at random for no reason!05:30
rdw200169Bossmanbeta, but it proves my point, firefox won't run *as the same user* twice05:30
cwilluwhatev, you have to set it from inside the mount05:30
Tully12thanks alot rdw200169, your a life saver05:30
Bossmanbetacwillu, trying to run 1 firefox locally, then a 2nd instance of it via ssh -X05:30
nightrid3r!info opera05:30
ubottuPackage opera does not exist in intrepid05:30
tritiumAzharn: I have no idea what you're trying to do, or what library you need.05:30
cwilluwhatev, cd /media/usb; sudo chmod 755 .05:31
rdw200169Tully12, did it work?05:31
Tully12rdw200169, yes workes great05:31
cwilluBossmanbeta, run it as firefox -P -no-remote05:31
tritiumnightrid3r: opera is (or at least was) in the third-party (partner) repository05:31
Tully12rdw200169, all the special effects and cute shit works too05:31
Fire_Lordwhatev, is it mounted currently?05:31
miranda_psirdw200169: you should be able to if you use two different profiles, since the lock is in the profile...05:31
kevdogAzharn: could be libmysqlclient15-dev package05:31
rdw200169Tully12, alright! lemme crunch something out real quick that will make it dual monitor... what resolution you running at?05:31
Bossmanbetacwillu, is there a reference for those options?05:31
whatevyeah it's mounted05:31
cwilluBossmanbeta, firefox --help05:31
Bossmanbetathank U cwillu05:32
Tully12rdw200169, 1440x900 both monitors05:32
tritiumAzharn: why do you need a development library, and yet not know which one you need?05:32
rdw200169miranda_psi, i dunno, can you help him w/that?  i don't know about profiles05:32
rdw200169Tully12, and that's what your monitor is running at right now?05:32
cwilluwhatev, you _have_ to do it from _inside_ the mount, chmod /media/usb is not the same as cd /media/usb; chmod .05:32
Fire_Lordwhatev, you may need to umount and then change the mode, but try what cwillu said first...05:32
cwilluwhatev, cd /media/usb; sudo chmod 755 /media/usb/. might work though05:32
Tully12rdw200169, PCI:3:0:0 is the 1st monitor, PCI:4:0:0 is the 2nd, each monitor is on a single card05:32
cwillubah05:32
cwilluwhatev, sudo chmod 755 /media/usb/. might work though05:32
Azharntritium: I'm trying to install mysqltcl 3.05 and it keeps giving me an error saying it can't find mysql05:32
Bossmanbetayea the -p tells it to use a diff profile05:33
Bossmanbetaok05:33
Tully12rdw200169, 1440x900 on both monitors05:33
bonez45tritium: ok, I am working through those steps. in the wiki.. but still doesn't explain why I can't get ubuntu 8.10 to recognize the hardware I have.. and configure itself accordingly05:33
rdw200169Tully12, do you want 'TwinView' or separate screens per monitor05:33
cwilluFire_Lord, unmounting it and setting it will do absolutely nothing to the mounted fs :p05:33
rdw200169Tully12, but is it actually running at the resolution?05:33
rdw200169Tully12, i.e. not 1024x768 or something like that05:33
Fire_Lordcwillu, yeah, but hes trying to alter the folder, not the mounted fs05:33
Tully12rdw200169, yea im at 1440x900 right now05:33
cwilluFire_Lord, whatev, depending on the fs, there might be a mount option to force the owner to a particular user05:33
Tully12rdw200169, and i would prefer to have the 2nd extended from the first05:34
rdw200169Tully12, and the other question; one big desktop, or two05:34
cwillu(whatev) Fire_Lord, what?  why?05:34
kevdogAzharn: what?05:34
cwillumakes no sense to chmod an empty folder in media05:34
rdw200169Tully12, ok, let's do 2 first, then i'll see if i can't work out TwinView05:34
tritiumbonez45: why do you say it's not recognized?05:34
Tully12kk thanks alot rdw20016905:34
cwilluseeing as it'll have no effect on an fs mounted in that folder05:34
efefefewho know song "Casey last ride" ,how last name this  Casey ?05:34
Fire_Lordcwillu, because its the mount point... if you have the mount point in a mode where it cannot be accessed, you cannot get to the mounted media right?05:35
SiVA_this is only for firefox... not even thunderbird05:35
SiVA_opps05:35
Fire_Lordunless i am mixed up...05:35
rdw200169Tully12, gimme a sec.05:35
SiVA_I just installed ubuntu-desktop on top of my Kubuntu. Now my firefox is all screwed up. The screen flickers anytime the app has to repaint (alt-tab, or right-clicking), and the title bar doesn't appear05:35
Tully12rdw200169, kk05:35
Azharnkevdog: mysqltcl-3.05 so I can run an eggdrop script I need... it requires libmysqltcl3.05.so05:35
cwilluFire_Lord, it's only a mount point if something is already mounted in it.  It's just a regular empty folder otherwise, and the permissions on the empty folder don't affect the permissions of something mounted over it05:35
Fire_Lordcwillu, ah... i see... thanks.. learn something everyday i guess. :P05:35
morbiddamn it05:36
morbidit happens again05:36
cwilluFire_Lord, think about where the permissions of / come from :)05:36
kevdogAzharn: You install mysqltcl05:36
rdw200169Tully12, and for safeties sake, make a copy of what you've got that works, and name it something like: xorg.conf.itreallyworks05:36
bonez45tritium: if I run sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg on other systems, it recognizes the hardware and sets up the appropriate entries in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but not on this system with the 82815 intel video hardware..05:36
kevdogAzharn: You installed mysqltcl?05:36
rdw200169Tully12, then you can always get it back if we mess things up ;)05:36
Azharnkevdog: yeah, but it's only 3.00 and this script requires 3.05 which I downloaded the tar for.05:36
cwillubonez45, the new xorg's don't use much in xorg.conf anymore05:36
Tully12haha rdw200169, already done that and uploaded it05:36
tritiumbonez45: what driver do you normally use?  i810?05:36

sekyourboxHow do you make Terminal auto load bash?  What would be a reason to not want to do that?05:38
Fire_Lordsekyourbox, it should already do that...05:38
tritiumsekyourbox: it does that already05:38
sekyourboxDash, i think05:39
sekyourboxever since i crashed my old usr acct05:39
Fire_Lordsekyourbox, i guess a reason not to do that is if you like a different shell05:39
bonez45cwillu: the problem is that on this box where I just installed 8.10 desktop.. the only two resolutions I get are 640x480 or 800x600.. really no fun...05:39
Fire_Lordsekyourbox, the way to change it should be in the user settings05:39
tritiumsekyourbox: no, bash is default05:39
cwillubonez45, pastebin the output of xrandr05:39

ubottubonez45: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)05:39

TheMusicGuyI really need help getting to the bottom of this random logout / X server crashing issue.05:42
joelsolankiso it seems tcpwrapper is blockin it.05:42
john522ya someone told me how to change it but i forgot05:42
rdw200169Tully12, take a shot at this: http://paste.ubuntu.com/109680/05:42
jvboomjoelsolanki: Latest version of ubuntu?05:42
john522i know there are some commands u can use in terminal to replace it05:42
joelsolanki8.0.405:42
john522but i dont want to try something that isnt going to work on this ver05:43
joelsolankii kept ALL : ALL : ALLOW in /etc/hosts.allow05:43
joelsolankiis this correct ?05:43
joelsolankithis allow all things to work ?05:43
kevdogAzharn: I tried to compile and it keeps telling me -- checking for Tcl configuration --WARNING: Cant find Tcl configuraion definitions05:43
sekyourboxFixed,  Just ran custom command "bash" :-)05:43
Huene`how do you keep Ubuntu from searching for networks every few minutes?05:44
cwillubonez45, still there?05:44
tritiumsekyourbox: that's not required, unless you changed your shell to begin with05:44
joelsolankianyone i want to stop using tcpwrappers or allow all thing in tcpwrappers.05:44
joelsolankihow can i do  ?05:44
tritiumsekyourbox: to make it your default shell again, since you apparently changed it, run "chsh"05:44
Azharnkevdog: I don't know what I did, but I tried the ./configure again and it worked. That dev thing I did must've worked.05:44
rdw200169Tully12, an interesting problem with a 'spread' desktop, is full screen goes across *both* screens, i hate that05:44
Azharnkevdog: you need the tcllib05:45
sekyourboxtritium, how would I have changed it?05:45
rdw200169Tully12, this is why i prefer separate x screens per monitor05:45
kevdogAzharn: What was your /configure statement?05:45
bonez45cwillu: still here, the other box. runs ubuntu.. having trouble sending it from that box to here..05:45
tritiumsekyourbox: you tell me.  But bash is certainly the default shell.05:45
bonez45I'll just go there05:45
cwillubonez45, don't have network on it?05:45
cwillubonez45, ah, k05:46
sridback to ubuntu. feels good.05:46
Azharnkevdog: http://paste.ubuntu.com/109681/05:46
sekyourboxtritium, I'm just wondering if you know how its done, because I dont..05:46
wolteris there such package as xerver-xorg-dev05:46
wolter?05:46
Tully12rdw200169, the first screen worked only, and i got a message saying "the pannel encountered a problem while loading: OAFIID: GNOME FastUserSwitchApplet05:46
tritiumsekyourbox: like I said above, run "chsh"05:46
sekyourboxoh, thx05:47
tritiumwolter: find out for yourself, via "apt-cache search xserver-xorg"05:47
rdw200169Tully12, yeah, i think i had to do some screwy things to get it working 'just right'05:47
tritiumbonez451: I never saw a reply from you...05:47
kevdogAzharn: Give me a sec05:47
bonez451tritium: here it is.. and for cwillu:   http://pastebin.com/m7d275d9205:47
woltertritium, uh, there is not. is that i get asked to have that from the nvidia site, to install the latest drivers...05:48
cwilluthanks05:48
tritiumwolter: do you want the 180 drivers?05:48
=== l1d is now known as nsideoutboy
woltertritium, i do.05:48
tritiumwolter: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-18005:48
efefefejohn522 : mb replace icon  in /usr/share/pixmaps/05:48
kevdogAzharn: I install tcllib and same thing!05:48
woltertritium, but i am having trouble with them''05:48
wolterok, nice05:48
tritiumwolter: we never recommend direct nvidia.com downloads.  Package-managed drivers are much preferred.05:49
woltertritium, has no installation candidate05:49
Azharnkevdog: install the tcl dev files as well... sorry forgot that part.05:49
tritiumwolter: then you need to enable the proper repo.  Are you on intrepid?05:49

cwilluwolter, if you tried installing via nvidia's installer, and you got the installer to uninstall preexisting drivers, you probably have a somewhat broken setup05:49
woltertritium, yeah.. well, is that i am getting this periodical system stall, and now i know that xorg is to blame, so i guess drivers were a possible solution.05:49
tritiumwolter: as you can see above, it's in the restricted repo05:49

rdw200169Tully12, super googling...05:50
cwilluk05:50
tritiumbonez451: I had asked what driver you normally use.  i810?  Is your /etc/X11/xorg.conf configured to use that?05:51
woltertritium, i am on intrepid, now gona google the repos... tritium, which 180 is that driver? is it 180.22?05:51

tritiumwolter: you don't need to google the repos.  Just enable them in System -> Administration -> Software Sources05:52
cwilluwolter, no, it's in intrepid now too05:52
tritiumwolter: no05:52
Bossmanbetaonce SSH'ed into a server, is there a way to add local listening ports to forward (e.g. -L 1234:192.168.0.3:23) on the fly? Or must I log out and redo the SSH command?05:52

cwillubonez451, edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf, in the device section, add:  Driver "intel"05:59
rdw200169dartagnon1234, ok, did you check dns? try 'cat /etc/resolv.conf'05:59
djyoung4i need help05:59
djyoung4with install help05:59
rdw200169dartagnon1234, is there line in there that says 'nameserver' with an IP address?06:00
cwilluwhatev, how are you mounting it?  from the terminal, or just letting the desktop mount it when you plug it in?06:00
whatevcwillu my truecrypt partition is mounted on /media/usb/ and it contains /media/usb/docroot, which is where i put my public web files for development. but running http://localhost/ gives me 'permission denied' errors because /media/usb doesnt have the right permissions. but cd'ing to /media/usb and typing sudo chmod -R 755 . isnt changing anything06:00
dartagnon1234thanks rdw, give me a minute to bring that up.. my Ubuntu box is in the other room06:00
woltertritium, AWESOME. you saved my life. I hated the nvidia.com installation since the second i knew i had to do it without gui.06:00
bonez451cwillu: is that it?06:00
cwilluwhatev, that you're using truecrypt would be relevant information :p06:00
whatev=p06:00
bonez451cwillu: just add that to the device section?06:00
cwillubonez451, actually, pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log first, just to check06:00
rdw200169Tully12, if the screens are backwards, you don't have to switch them around, just swap Screen0 and Screen1 in the Server Layout, for future reference ;)06:01

cwilluwhatev, what's the mount line you're using?06:01

woltertritium, haha, sometimes i dont say that intrepid is awesome, but those canonical guys are making some damn good effort.06:03
rdw200169Tully12, but I don't know for sure; i think your problem right now is related to the 'modelines' in the Screen Configs06:03
djyoung4ok i will try and figure that out06:03
rdw200169Tully12, did that work at all?06:04
Tully12rdw200169, the first screen works great, 2nd one even flash or show anything06:04

bonez451cwillu: suggestions on how to capture it and pastebin it?06:05
Tully12rdw200169, sure06:05
cwilluwhatev, sorry, it's going to be a config setting on truecrypt, which I'm not really familiar with06:05
rdw200169dartagnon1234, yeah, you don't have a DNS server specified, did you manually assign the IP address06:05
cwillubonez451, how are you pasting it?06:05
tritiumwolter: probably depends on where you are06:05
cwillubonez451, I'd expect pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log would work06:05
cwillubonez451, (apt-get install pastebinit)06:06
roccity_I was trying to get xinerama working and it didn't work but it would try and connect to my ethernet06:06

dartagnon1234rdw200169, yeah, trying to get ssh working.  what should I do to get my DNS working?06:06

davew009quick question for my grub again, i have ubuntu installed on /dev/sda6, which is, with its swap partition on /dev/sda3, so in grub should i point root to sda6 or sda3?06:08
cwilluwhatev, mount ... -o umask=... should do something for you06:08
cwillubonez451, thanks06:08
wolterallquixotic, hey, whats up. I haven't been able to fix this problem I fight with, but I wanted to tell you that the 180 driver for nvidia is now available from the restricted repos on intrepid06:08
ethana2davew009: the root is /dev/sda606:08
rdw200169dartagnon1234, gimme a sec.06:08
dartagnon1234rdw200169, no problem06:09
miranda_psiwhatev: if its a filesystem that supports linux  permissions then it can be done, otherwise just mount it using an fstab entry with the option umask=002206:09

rdw200169Tully12, hey, not to much different from what i did ;)  you found the very well hidden nvidia driver documentation; that, or a good forum...06:27
cwilluis there anyway to make aptitude reinstall do a purge of the package, rather than just doing a normal reinstall?06:27

rdw200169Tully12, ah, i see what it was: you aren't using DFP monitors (digital)06:29
rdw200169Tully12, i should have put CRT in the modelines...06:29

cwilludracnoc, --purge isn't a commandline option in man though06:30

ziggleshi guys, if i want to make a host on my network respond to something.domain.com, what should be installed on that host?  do i need bind?06:32
rwwU-b-u-n-t-u: Newly-formatted drives are often configured to be only writable by root. You could try "sudo chown -R yourusername:yourgroup /path/to/mountpoint" or "sudo chmod -R ugo+rwx /path/to/mountpoint" to remedy that.06:32
Tully12rdw200169, yep everything wigglez06:32
cwilludracnoc, nvm, just using dpkg directly06:32
dracnoccwillu: lol, fair enough.06:33
U-b-u-n-t-urww thanks and its mounted in media/disk06:33
rdw200169Tully12, you may notice that video and such doesn't work right; if that's the case, you just disable compiz on *one* the monitors; it was a bug in compiz.  i don't know if it's there anymore; i'm still using 8.0406:33
U-b-u-n-t-uits that where it should be?06:33
U-b-u-n-t-uis*06:33
rwwU-b-u-n-t-u: sounds about right. You'd replace "/path/to/mountpoint" with "/media/disk/" in the commands above.06:33
Tully12ahh ok thanks rdw200169 for the tip06:33
* cwillu purges hal and pm-utils06:34
U-b-u-n-t-urww thanks I am going to change the permissions now then06:34
rdw200169Tully12, in order to do that, (Alt+F2 for all this): metacity --replace; move mouse to the screen you want compiz on; then: compiz --only-current-screen06:34
movieboxHi - When I type in places it does auto spell check - but it is set to another country's language somewhere - how can I change it to English ? ?06:34
zigglesanyone know how i can name a computer something like host.domain.com ?06:35
Tully12rdw200169, saved that cuz i wont remember it lol06:35
rdw200169Tully12, even though you can't drag windows b/w the screens, the benefit is that you can do full screen on *one* screen; i.e. watch a movie on one and play a wine game on the other, and still be able to mouse b/w them06:35
rdw200169Tully12, i do that alot!06:35

lanoxx-where does ubuntu store source code for applications?06:38
cwillulanoxx-, apt-get source <packagename> will download the source for that package06:39
rdw200169cwillu, i found that since i have un-equal monitor sizes, that it was *much* more reliable having completely separate screens; that and the compiz problem i already mentioned06:39
rdw200169cwillu, i'm still using 8.04, i haven't tried w/8.1006:39
* cwillu shrugs at rdw20016906:39
cwillurdw200169, been doing this since 7.0406:39
lanoxx-cwillu, thx06:39
rwwKungfuJoe: You can find out which version of Ubuntu you have with "lsb_release -a". Hardy, Feisty, etc. are different versions of Ubuntu; you can see a list of all Ubuntu versions at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases06:40
KungfuJoeOk, so I have intrepid. Does it make a huge diff which one I have? I'm under the impression that these are codenames for the different releases, right?06:40
cwillurdw200169, what was the compiz problem you were having?06:40
lanoxx-cwillu, what the respective command for aptitude?06:40

cwillulanoxx-, aptitude isn't really giving you anything for that case though06:40

clearzenso I want to make a raid array that is larger than 2TB do I need to be running 64 bit software to do this?07:40

=== Kunalagon_ is now known as Kunalagon
clearzenI have heard that there is a problem with the memory addressing on 32 bit systems on volumes above 2TB. That is will only show 2 TB and not the actual space available07:41
cwilluclearzen, memory addressing isn't related to harddrives though07:41
phorensicclearzen: I don't think that matters, is this hardware or softwre raid?07:41
clearzenIt's hardware07:42
dmsupermanTelQuel: You could just do sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts but yeah I think that does it too07:42
cwilluclearzen, unless you have a bugreport about it07:42
cwilluTelQuel, yes, and also a bunch of other useful stuff07:42
phorensicclearzen: I can't se this being a problem at all.07:42
UsmanYes I have sent you the URL07:42
TelQuelhrm why do I get an error window when I try to visit youtube? haha. I am using firefox and it seems to think I am trying to install something to www.youtube.com on my hard drive or something.07:43
cwilluclearzen, the 32/64bit is about how much address space (ram, basically) a single process (program) can use07:43
cwilluclearzen, you can even use more that 4gb memory on a 32bit os, as long as the os support pae.  Any given program would still only be able to use at most 4gb of ram though07:44
skate23gb ram vs up to 8gb?07:44

clearzenphorensic: well look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ext3fs#Size_limits am I reading it wrong?07:44
cwilluskate2, 64 GB07:45
phorensicclearzen: One possibility is the file system you are using, lemme see the doc07:45
phorensicbrb07:45
nightrid3rfor those interrested see wiki https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BelineaC154107:45
cwilluclearzen, that's the file system, unrelated to 32bit/64bit processors07:45
skate2cool07:46
cwilluclearzen, 8kb block size is up to 16tb, as listed on that page07:46
nightrid3rcwillu: on a very low level it might be relevant when blockcount goes over max adress size07:46
clearzenyeah, but I can only get a 8kib block size with a alpha architecture07:46
cwilluclearzen, eh?07:46
cwilluclearzen, block size is set by the file system, nothing to do with the hardware07:47
clearzensorry 8kib pages like alpha07:47
cwilluclearzen, ext4 (which is supported in jaunty when that comes out, and can also be used in intrepid with some changes) supports up to 1 exabyte filesystems, and 16tb files07:47
ubuntnewhow to set firefox work with mplayer-plugin07:47
cwilluclearzen, this isn't talking about vm pages07:47
clearzenlook at the note for 8kib block sizes07:47
nightrid3rwow 16tb files for ma pron :)07:48
phorensiccwillu: ext4? What additions did they make is is just larger file size support?07:48
cwilluphorensic, there's lots of changes07:48
clearzenanyway, I'm using 6.06. Could I still use ext4 partitions?07:48
theatrusclearzen, not without upgrading your kernel manually07:48
TelQuelhrm how do I adjust my screen brightness? It's not under appearance?07:49
cwilluclearzen, okay, so 16tb then07:49
cwilluclearzen, you'd need to be using a kernel with ext4 support.  intrepid's is the earliest with ext4 support, and it's still flagged as dev there07:49
djyoung4http://ihateliz.com/?id=2v6e5z71xo5qvolx8v5v0edkdlbg3d07:49
clearzencwillu: at what point during partitioning can I specify block size?07:49
cwilluclearzen, if you're planning on using a raid, you really should have a good understanding of all the commands, so I think I'm just going to refer you to the man pages07:50
clearzencwillu: well, I am not going to be setting this up for a few weeks so I have time to choose what I want to do.07:50
cwilluclearzen, okay07:50
clearzencwillu: okay, I guess I'll just dig around07:50
cwilluclearzen, if you have a spare drive, play around with lvm + dmraid + partitioning, to get a good grip on it07:50
adantehi, is there no way for me to prep a hard drive for a ubuntu install (for a laptop with no floppy/cdrom) from another machine?07:50
clearzencwillu: or RTFM07:51
cwilluclearzen, gparted can get some of that started, although you'll really want to understand everything that is involved07:51
Usmandnsuperman: the link I got is:  http://pastebin.com/m7bd4601107:51
cwilluclearzen, if you have to stay on 6.06 (or an old kernel, etc), you might also want to look at the other possible fs's07:51
nightrid3radante: must be very old laptop07:51
fmeff001whats happening if i get keycodes for my Super_L and Super_R keys with <showkeys>, but xev only shows a keycode for Super_R????07:51
cwilluclearzen, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_file_systems#Limits07:52
cwilluclearzen, jfs might be useful07:52
clearzencwillu: sweet thanks for the link07:52
adantenightrid3r: its somewhat old, yes thanks for your concern07:52
TelQueldoes anyone know where to adjust my screen's brightness? I do not see it in preferences.07:52
nightrid3radante: you can do it but i suggest you install xubuntu as it needs less resources than ubuntu07:53
clearzencwillu: i'm thinking raid 5 or 10 but I need to figure out the size limits involved and do some further study I think. Thanks.07:53
cwilluclearzen, in a terminal, mkfs<tab> will give you a list of ones you should be able to use (although alot of them will be uninteresting)07:53

brotherhandthere arent any performance problems, but can anybody tell me how to stop the Login sound from happening every couple minutes?07:55
nightrid3radante: it might complain about xorg but that can be solved07:55
clearzencwillu: I was thinking about the seagate 1.5TB07:55
cwilluclearzen, I kinda prefer 10 if you're not on a budget that is severely restricting the number of drives you use07:55
Glu3hey07:55
Glu3im a guy07:55
clearzencwillu: yeah, scalability is always a plus07:55
adantenightrid3r: hm so no way to do it by connecting hdd to good computer via usb, doing some steps and then plugging hdd into old laptop again?07:55
cwilluclearzen, on the other hand, I'm also a fan of simply using dmraid/lvm instead of a hardware raid :p07:56

cwillunightrid3r, and it's /dev/sd* for most everything now too :p07:57
nightrid3rlearning something new evry day :)07:57
cwilluskate2, if you have compiz enabled, make sure the desktop wall plugin isn't using those shortcuts (even if you don't have a vertical virtual desktop, it'll still grab the keys)07:58
skate2i dont have compiz07:58
cwilluno idea then07:59

cwillunightrid3r, firm maybe :p07:59
nightrid3rcool07:59
skate2what's better to do for a laptop when turnin it off at night, hibernate or standby?07:59
cwillunightrid3r, I think the desktop installer won't install to a usb drive by default, but I don't know for sure07:59
cwilluskate2, I just leave mine on, not really any practical difference between the two though07:59
PeoplesAdvocateif I installed webmin using dpkg how to i uninstall everything that was installed with it?08:00
cwillueither way, the drive should be in power saving08:00
skate2cwillu,  neither use any battery power right?08:00
flodinskate2: Standby will strain the battery08:00
MechdavePeoplesAdvocate, use sudo apt-get autoremove08:00
skate2ah08:00
cwilluPeoplesAdvocate, unless it keeps track, you'd have to know what you installed and remove it via dpkg/apt/synaptic/etc08:00
MechdaveOops dpkg08:00
PeoplesAdvocateok cool thanks08:00
cwilluskate2, suspend will you a very slight amount of power (my laptop can stay suspended for days before it goes dead)08:00
cwilluskate2, best thing is to leave it plugged in anyway08:01
skate2cool08:01
skate2i dont like leaving it plugged in because the charger uses a lot of electricity08:01
cwilluskate2, modern batteries prefer to be tricklecharged, they should either be in use, or be plugged in08:01
cwillunot really08:01
nightrid3rPeoplesAdvocate: i don't think webmin installs additional software, except maybe some perl module which won't hurt your system08:01
cwilluskate2, it's better for the battery life, which is a bigger win over all (longer time before it ends up in a landfill)08:02
TelQuelanyone know whether I can set screen brightness in ubuntu?08:02
skate2ok08:02
PeoplesAdvocatewhat if it was a .deb ? does it apply or is there a easier way to uninstall08:02
TelQuelI find it a bit eye-blazing at present08:02
cwilluskate2, suspend/hibernate while plugged in with a fully charged battery should be negligable08:02
cwilluTelQuel, I think it's under power settings08:02
cwilluTelQuel, fn+left/right might do it too08:02
cwilluPeoplesAdvocate, deb files are what apt/dpkg/synaptic do08:03
cwilluPeoplesAdvocate, synaptic has a filter for 'local/obsolete' packages, which should list anything installed through a deb without a repository08:03
TelQuelI don't see it under power settings08:03

TelQuelxchat definitely has a different appearance, I am not at all used to this style of irc.08:32
cwillu.ssh contains stuff you may not be able to replace08:32
cwillukeys and the like08:32

nightrid3rdjyoung4: http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Main_Page08:32
cwillujrgp, mv ~/.ssh ~/.ssh.old would do the same thing, and not cause any other issues08:32

cwillujrgp, i.e., preventing him from logging on to machines that only allow id_rsa logins, etc08:33
jrgpgotcha08:33
cwillutry to avoid suggesting rm -r as a fix, especially when you don't know if its the problem08:33
nightrid3rjrgp: emacs requires 12 fingers to use it08:33
djyoung4thanks nightrid3r i was looking at this one called the t mobile wing which runs windows mobile whatever but this is so much better08:34
cwilluit's right up there with the usual advice of deleting all the .gnome/.gconf folders to 'test' if they're causing the problem08:34
UsmanTumhari maa ki08:34
cwilluyes, you fixed the problem, by killing the patient08:34
UsmanI got the ansmwer08:34
cwilluand maybe you didn't fix the problem either :p08:34

phorensicCoolkid: fat32 from what i gather10:08
idrissmrabtiBecaus I've juste installed 8.10 yesterday10:08
koshariCoolkid so delete the existing partition(s) , make a 2 gig fat32 one at the beginning of the drive, and then try the installer again, the usb persistance installer should set the partition to bootable if not you can set the flag with gparted10:08
phorensicidrissmrabti: no firestarter is not installed by default.. on the router I was thinking10:09
idrissmrabtino I've no firewall on The router10:09

eth01koshari: lots of routers have builtin DNS functionality.10:13
eth01so it's perfectly alright to use the routers IP address as [ a ] DNS resolver.10:13
idrissmrabtiand also it act as a DNS10:14
