laeg-failpike_: you spoke to me about this earlier on00:01
laeg-faili'm reinstalling my root partition and i have the root partition set to mount point: / - can someone just confirm that it's necessary for me to set my old almost full /home partition's mount point to /home and that doing so won't delete it or create a second home folder?00:01
mrglinuxno solution ?00:01
laeg-faili just need to be certain before i proceed with the installation because the data in /home part is so valuable00:01
pike_ laeg-fail yep00:01
laeg-failpty :D00:01
pike_laeg-fail: wait00:01
pike_laeg-fail: is /home on a seperate partition than / at the moment?00:02
estudiantefuxxy: Well, you were right, "wget --help|grep directory" would've done the trick, thanks anyway.00:02
laeg-failwell at the moment there is no /00:02
laeg-faili deleted it by mistake00:02
laeg-failbut /home has always had its own partition00:02
puffpike_: Okay, plugging in that ubuntu drive now...00:02
=== fuxxy is now known as unimaginative
pike_laeg-fail: ok in the ubuntu install choose 'manual' option and setup /home as mounted to /home before you write changes to disk make sure that the /home mount point is set to 'do not format' to be honest im normally so paranoid i setup home in fstab after the install but that should do it00:03
pike_laeg-fail: manually setup partition table i mean00:03

=== n00bzy is now known as per_bits
laeg-failpike. yeah it's not set to format - any chance this will create two /home dirs there? laeg and laeg2 maybe?00:04
messeupphorensic hehe.. can people stop eee ing :P i asked if ther was a channel not a howto :p00:04
laeg-failis it definitely necessary to tell the OS where the /home dir is or will it not just see it and see who has permission to it00:04
pike_laeg-fail: no ive used it before it mounts it and uses that for /home just like a /boot or whatever partition it should just work as long as you dont accidentally tell it to format the partition00:05
pike_laeg-fail: with ext3 all perms will be preserved as long as you create the same user name00:05

Kornholequick and stupid question: I just changed my resolution to something WAY too small, and can't get it back because the screen resolution window is cut off, can anyone tell the the keyboard shortcuts to get the resolution changed? (I'm on 8.10 btw)01:05
cornwallhi, I've been working towards getting a bug proposed and someone mentioned sending the bug upstream01:05
somethingtodorevamp128:  huh... according to about:plugins, 8.10 has flv set to be played by:  Totem Web Browser Plugin 2.24.301:05
cornwallHow would I go about that?01:05
usr13ricardo: In other words, you must need a valid domain name server address after the word "nameserver" on a line by itself01:05
redvamp128somethingtodo:  when I click on the player it says flash is playing01:05

bukowskii have a Thompson TG585v7 router. can someone help me find the configuration page?01:07
usr13ricardo: as long as  you have your system set to DHCP, then it's going to ask the router for IP info and enter it into the proper places, and that includes the nameserver IPs01:07
bukowskihow can i see the ip of my router?01:08
ricardousr13 how can i unset DHCP?01:08
* cellofellow figured it out, have open system-config-printer.01:08
usr13ricardo: In other words, you have a DHCP server on your lan that is giving out a nameserver address, and if that nameserver address is wrong, you will have to change it.01:08

redvamp128burkmat:  should be able to use network tools traceroute01:09
Titan8990ricardo: use the network manager or configure it in /etc/network/interfaces01:09
usr13ricardo: Use a static IP that is outside the pool that the DHCP server is using, set default route and add a valid nameserver IP to resolv.conf01:09
redvamp128bukowski:  I mean -- shoudl be able to use network tools and traceroute01:09
Titan8990CareBear\: I would use the alternate cd01:10
usr13ricardo: You can use the natwork manager to do all that if you like.01:10
redvamp128bukowski:  should be the second hop in that tool01:10
CareBear\Titan8990 : ok? why is that? (talk technical, I've been running Linux for a long time, just never ubuntu)01:10
thehook_bukowski: usually it is your IP address, except the last digit is .1 (ex your IP then router probably is
Titan8990CareBear\: the alternate CD is just an installer, no LiveCD01:11
Z_GodI'm trying to install jaunty, but it asks me for a mirror01:11
redvamp128bukowski:  goto system -- administration -- the network tools -- the traceroute and should be the second hop in the trace01:11

BCampbellDoctaEntropy, look in the "applications menu" at the top of the screen, you should have a system tools item, in there you can configure read/write to external drives01:45
multipass__anyone else have a SB Audigy that doesn't work?  my device is detected but it looks like ubuntu is trying to use emu10k1 instead of emu10k2 as the ALSA site suggests for this card.  can anyone advise?01:46
comicinker1bukowski: the PC to be controlled needs vino-server to be installed, the client needs vino01:46
philis there a problem with the madwifi.snapshots.org server? i haven't been able to connect to it to get my atheros wifi drivers for the last 2 days01:46
bukowskivino from synaptics?01:46
Dr_willismultipass__,  i think it depends on the exact audigy card. as to what one to use.. I used to have those - but dont any more.01:47
=== firefox is now known as b-man
DoctaEntropyBCampbell, now what01:47
ShakedownHow do I set it so I can execute a program from anywhere?01:47
bukowskicomicinker1, is there vino for xubuntu?01:47
Shakedownwithin the file system01:47
BCampbellDoctaEntropy, you may have to close the x-server (ctrl+alt+bkspace) and log back in..that's all it took for my external drive to work01:47
multipass__Dr_willis, it's true, and i've located my card, but the right driver is not installed.  do i have to mod the kernel or something to get the right one now?01:47
comicinker1bukowski: yes01:48
Titan8990Shakedown: you have to add the directory of the program to your PATH variable, or create sym link to the program to somewhere already in your PATH01:48
comicinker1!VNC | bukowski01:48
ubottubukowski: 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 !FreeNX01:48
Titan8990bukowski: xubuntu and ubuntu use the repositories01:48
Titan8990comicinker1: he is looking for file transfer....01:48
poutineexodus_ms, on second thought, this isn't really removing it at all, simply doing sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio; apt-get install esound seemed to do the trick, oh and removing pulseaudio references from rc levels01:48
=== ubuntu_ is now known as hexxa
ShakedownI can do that with 'export PATH=PATH+/path' ? What's the syntax for that.01:49
bukowskiTitan8990, its says: VINO, VNC server for GNOME.01:49
bukowskiisnt it gnome-only?01:49
Titan8990bukowski: no, that just means it uses gtk libraries01:49
comicinker1Titan8990: bukowski: oh01:49
Titan8990bukowski: xubuntu also runs on gtk libraries01:49
navarrogoodnight all01:50
comicinker1bukowski: the most simple method for exchanging files between linux machines is ssh01:50
Titan8990Shakedown: syntax is: export PATH='/new/path:$PATH'01:50
Titan8990Shakedown: you can add it to you .bash_profile01:50
n00balienhello everyone01:50
bukowskiso xubuntu runs all the gnome things?01:50
ShakedownTitan8990: Thank you01:51
n00balienI have a question but i can wait until ur done helping others ;)01:51
Titan8990comicinker1: yes, but he needs to transfer a very large amount of stuff01:51
BCampbelln00balien, ask or you'll be waiting for a long time01:51
Titan8990Shakedown: np01:51
Titan8990bukowski: it can, and usually without having to get additional libraries01:52
redrebelis there a command that allows to quickly check the listening ports based on the process name?01:52
Titan8990bukowski: kubuntu can also run gnome and xfce programs but typically, it will need to download a lot of new libs for them01:52
Titan8990bukowski: all the programs are interchangable01:52
ShakedownHow do I find the location of some file somewhere in the filesystem?01:53
bukowskiTitan8990, yes.. but why when i donload a kde programm in ubuntu or xubuntu, it doesnt appear in the programms menu?01:53
redrebelShakedown: find01:53
bukowskifor example, i donwloaded sensorsd.01:53
yell0wShakedown: fine / -iname *somename*01:53
DoctaEntropyBCampbell, no luck01:53
n00balienAlright I have a WUSB100 Linksys Wireless USB Adapter, ubuntu, ported drives from windows with ndiswrapper and for some reason i cannot use network manager(wireless manager) or even see wlan0 without first going to terminal and switching to root even though i have given permissions to my regular user for wireless access01:53
Titan8990bukowski: you have to add it manually, or run it from the terminal01:53
n00baliensometimes it wont boot up until i do iwlist wlan0 s01:54
Titan8990bukowski: sometimes you don't, but its just how it was packaged01:54
bukowskihow adding manually?01:54
DoctaEntropyBCampbell, still won't mount. and i tried to force it again, but it didn't work then either01:54
Shakedownyell0w: find / -iname filename?01:54
nat2610is there a way to do apt something to get the .deb file of a package?01:54
BCampbellDoctaEntropy, I may have missed a step, did you try to add the mount to your fstab?  if so remove the entries and reboot.  Sorry my bad01:54
Titan8990bukowski: gnome has a menu editor, not sure about xfce01:54
Titan8990bukowski: right click -> edit menus01:54
yell0wShakedown: that works too if you know the filename01:54
n00balienis there anything i can do to fix this so wireless is available without these steps taken01:54
DoctaEntropyokay let's try it01:54
yell0wShakedown: man find and man locate01:55
bukowskiTitan8990, ok, then?01:55
Titan8990Shakedown: also, if it is a program in your path you can find it with the "wich" command01:55
philis there a problem with the madwifi.snapshots.org server? i haven't been able to connect to it to get my atheros wifi drivers for the last 2 days..anywhere else i can get them or any insight on whats up with the madwifi.org site?01:55

Titan8990bukowski: give the button the name and the command used to launch it01:56
n00balienok there we go all together ;)01:56
kitchephil: seems like snapshots.madwifi.org is no longer around sicne they switched to ath5*01:56
Titan8990bukowski: the program is usually put in your path01:56
bukowskithank you bery much01:57
bukowskigotta go now01:57
Titan8990bukowski: so for example if you got kdevelop you would launch it with: kdevelop01:57

I am at a screen where VM is telling me to select a hard disk image to be used as the boot hard disk of the virtual machine. I have already installed win xp and ubuntu and I am wondering if I should use the installation disc that I downloaded Ubuntu from with VM. Can you help me with this?02:19

spillDr_willis: no, I mean the orange ubuntu screen that loads right after I select the os to boot, my badn.02:20
Cpudan80Phantomime: What is the host OS?02:20
Cpudan80Phantomime: the one actually installed on the real machine02:20
laegexodus_ms: it's done, just had some problems with the launcher - the launcher i created using the GUI was exactly the same as the one created by nano but only the nano one worked, the former gave the error "Failed to execute child process "opt/vuze/./azureus" (No such file or directory" - or maybe i was just missing a forwardslash at the start...02:20

axisyshow do I convert the audio in /dev/audio0 to audio file?02:20
schristiedoes anyone know what causes the error message: Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding. Must be connected to a terminal.02:20
Dr_willisspill,  thats the Usplash/bootsplash - I also disable that usless thing. :) it hides imporntant error mesages.02:20
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about bootsplash02:20
ubottuTo change the Gnome splash screen, use !gnome-splashscreen-manager or change the GConf key /apps/gnome-session/options/splash_image using !gconf-editor.02:20
Cpudan80Phantomime: the host os is the real OS installed on the real machine02:20
ubottuTo select the usplash artwork you want, use "sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so && sudo update-initramfs -u" - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/USplashCustomizationHowto for adding your custom artwork02:20

JAAnyone know how to download google books?02:30
schristieCpudan80: do you know what might cause that error anyway? I don't think it has much to do with xming. Is it more likely to be the server or client?02:30
Dr_willisblaherz,  i use xming all the time. :) its handy02:30
CareBear\simple : called procfs, and it is mounted like any other filesystem, except all the files and directories are created on the fly by the kernel, it's not stored on any real disk02:30
schristieDr_willis: ever had that error?02:30
CareBear\simple : so probably you just don't have it mounted right now02:30
Cpudan80schristie: has to be the client, nothing has to be done on the server that's special02:30
schristieCpudan80: ok02:31
CareBear\simple : try running mount /proc02:31
CareBear\simple : note that you have to cd out of the dir first02:31
schristieCpudan80: of course, I'm always confused by x over which is client and which is server02:31
Dr_willisschristie,  i dident see you rorigianl problem.02:31
Cpudan80schristie: the server is the thing you are connecting to02:31
simplecareBear: hold on I think I got it. gedit shows a blank page, but nano sees the doc just fine02:31
* Cpudan80 could make very bad analogy about this02:31
* Cpudan80 will refrain for fear of being banned ;-)02:31
schristieDr_willis: I'm attempting to forward x over ssh connecting to ubuntu server from andlinux on windows, which has worked before, but now I get the error "Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding. Must be connected to a terminal."02:32
CareBear\simple : the reference test is always to use cat02:32
Pe1o /join #freenode02:32
schristieCpudan80: lol, I know that's how things normally work, but I keep reading things that make it sound like the "client" is the one you're connecting to, and the "server" is the one you're connecting from02:32
simpleCareBear: so cat reads pretty much anything, huh?02:32
Dr_willisschristie,  I normally just use the xming wizard..  Not sure on that error. sorry.   You are sshing into the linux box beforhand? with putty? or what exctly?02:33
CareBear\simple : correct02:33
Cpudan80schristie: that guide you're reading is wrong02:33
simpleCareBear: that's great thanks a lot02:33
Cpudan80The thing you plug into is the "server"02:33
Cpudan80the thing that does the plugging is the client02:33
CareBear\simple : some special things can need dd, but if you only remember one tool it should definately be cat :)02:33
zerwasI would like to create 30 seconds of a video file with simply a black screen. how can i do this?02:34
Dr_williszerwas,  ffmpeg and mencoder - i think can both do that.02:34
schristieCpudan80: wikipedia: "The X Window System is based on a client-server model: a single server controls the input/output hardware, such as the screen, the keyboard, and the mouse; all application programs act as clients, interacting with the user and with the other clients via the server."02:34
zerwasDr_willis> the question is how02:34
CareBear\zerwas : which file format would you like it to be and which resolution do you want?02:34
Dr_williszerwas,  or so i seem to recall a way in the FAQ for them02:34
CareBear\/frame size02:34
zerwasCareBear\> 352x28802:35
simpleCareBear: the dd man is confusing to me, but I will look into it02:35
Dr_williszerwas,  one can make a  black jpg. and use it as a signgle frame.. then tell memcoder to repeate that frame so many times..02:35
zerwasCareBear\> the format does not matter that much02:35
Dr_williszerwas,  i tried making a slide show once of 300 screen shots.. :) it lasted like 3 sec.02:35
Dr_williszerwas,  i forget if it was ffmpeg i used or mencoder..  Proberly mencoder02:36
zerwasDr_willis> ah that's a good idea. i need these 30 seconds because i want to put them at the beginning of another video file and couldn't find a program that was able to handle this02:36
ryanpriorHow do I tell a process which CPU core (s) to run on?02:36
Dr_willisLinux gives you the tools to do the jobs :) like a 'wood shop'    Gotta find the right Hammer.02:36

CareBear\Dr_willis : check out smilutils02:38
Dr_williszerwas,  check out winff also. a front end to ff02:38

Dr_williszerwas,  you are used to  'do it all in one' programs.    not the 'hammer/saw/router' method02:38
Dr_willis'mortising jig'  vs 'hammer and chissle and drill' :)02:39
mrweszerwas: have you checked out kdenlive?02:39
zerwasDr_willis> no, i know the "one program for one purpose" philosophy of *nix, but in video editing, every program has some capabilities, but none of them has all ;)02:39

Dr_willisI drive my friends at work CRAZY with my 'computers  are a Woodshop' analogies02:40
Cpudan80If you really having trouble with xming on windows you should join ##windows02:40
Cpudan80Think about if you go to a sit down restaurant02:40
mrwesDr_willis: I can't imagine that!02:40
Cpudan80The server is the one that does all the work02:40
zerwasmrwes> thanks, i will have a look at this.02:40
Cpudan80the same is true with X tunneling02:40
Cpudan80most [if not all] the work is done on the server02:41
Cpudan80[the thing you connect to]02:41
exodus_msThis must be analogy night :P02:41
Cpudan80I was going to use a much worse analogy02:41
Cpudan80but I dont want to get a KLine02:41
BCampbellDoctaEntropy, just to refresh..you removed the entiry from fstab and rebooted, when you open the NTFS-Config tool is the extrenal drive there and can you click on the "allow write to external" option?02:41
exodus_msna, it was good,02:41
schristieCpudan80: I understand the wording, analogy, and usage. It's just that I can never tell whether someone is using "server" and "client" relative to xwindows definition, or the standard local/remote definition02:42
hollenjfi want to do video capturing to make home movies. whats the best card to use?02:42
schristieCpudan80: in other wikipedia pages, they appear to use them in the opposite meaning02:42
Cpudan80schristie: the machine you are connecting to is always the server02:42
Cpudan80ignore Wikipedia02:42
schristieCpudan80: except in xwindows02:42
schristieCpudan80: most of the time02:42
Cpudan80no not except anything!02:42
schristieCpudan80: depends on who's talking02:42
Cpudan80The thing you connect to is *ALWAYS* the server02:43
Cpudan80This is networking 10102:43
schristieCpudan80: I know, that's why it's so annoying02:43
Cpudan80I dont see how its hard or annoying but ok02:43
mrweshollenjf: hauppauge card02:43
schristieCpudan80: but every time I've seen the terms defined for xwindows, client is remote, and server is local02:43
BCampbellhollenjf, what is your source? video camera, usb firewaire?02:44
schristieCpudan80: another instance: [Footnote: We have tried to avoid paragraph-length footnotes in this book, but X has defeated us by switching the meaning of client and server. In all other client/server relationships, the server is the remote machine that runs the application (i.e., the server provides services, such as database service or computational service). For some perverse reason that's better left to the imagination, X insists on 02:44
DoctaEntropyBCampbell, yes i have02:44
Cpudan80schristie: that is wrong02:44
Dr_willisschristie,  X sort of uses the terms in a backwards ways at times..   :)02:44
jedihomehow much of a hit in performance do you get when running ubuntu 'inside windows' (fat32) ?02:44
hollenjfmrwes: not all hauppage cards are supported, such as the wintv-PVR's.. my source is video camera (hi8) composite out02:44
jedihomealso is there a way to install ubuntu without burning it to a physical cd ?02:44
ubottuThe X Window System is the part of your system that's responsible for graphical output. To restart your X, type « sudo /etc/init.d/?dm restart » in a console - To fix screen resolution or other X problems: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution02:44
Dr_willisjedihome,  You mean via 'Wubi' ?02:45
jedihomeDr_willis whats wubi ?02:45
BCampbellDoctaEntropy, then I am at a los..you will need someone more experienced than I, sorry02:45
schristieCpudan80: anyway, now you know why I would ask which you meant by server and client02:45
Dr_willisjedihome,  a way to install  Linux 'inside' windows02:45
rdw200169jedihome, i think he's wanting the USB install option02:45
Dr_willisjedihome,  vs. running ubuntu under windows in virtualbox/vmware02:45
Dr_willisjedihome,  and yes you can make bootable/installable thumbdrives02:45
jedihomeDr_willis when i pop in the ubuntu cd it gives me the option to 'install inside windows' which i asume just installs it in fat3202:46
DoctaEntropyBCampbell, thanks for tryin02:46
mrweshollenjf: I believe the pvr-150 works02:46
schristieCpudan80: but now I that think I know which you're using for what, do you know anything about xauth, or what might cause the error I mentioned?02:46
Dr_willisjedihome,  incorrect.. has nothing to do with 'in fat32;02:46
blueshiftoverwatis there a 16 character limit for names in Freenode? Just curious because my username "blueshiftoverwatch" shows up as "blueshiftoverwat"02:46
BCampbellDoctaEntropy, good luck...guess I got lucky02:46
Dr_willisjedihome,  it makes a large file.. and installs to 'that' and then sets the boot option  to boot from that file  via WUBI.02:46
jedihomeDr_willis: ok i just assumed that was the case since they make a point of saying that performance is going to take a hit02:46
DoctaEntropyOkay, someone else, Hello, I need some help. I tried to mount my external hard drive, and have had some difficulties. It's a western digital 500GB that I formatted to NTFS not too long ago and pretty much all it has is a lot movies. I just installed a dual boot with ubuntu, and wanted to mount it. I created the mount point /media/external1 and then modified /etc/fstab. However, when I try to mount it, it tells me I have to fo02:46
Dr_willisjedihome,  it does.. and i dont suggest using wubi at all02:46

Cpudan80schristie: Im willing to bet that xming on windows is messed up02:47
jedihomeyeah id rather not do it, can you point me in the direction as to how i can do it via usb?02:47
Cpudan80schristie: unless you disabled xforwarding on your ubuntu box02:47
jedihomethumbdrive that is02:47
ChubbzDotcaEntropy, you'll need to mount it via the terminal02:47
Dr_willisjedihome,  i use 'unetbootin' and a ubuntu.iso file to make a bootable thumbdrive02:47
schristieCpudan80: no, x forwarding still works, it just complains first02:47
blueshiftoverwatoh well I guess people would know me from the forums even though the last 2 letters aren't in my name.02:47
mrwesaragorn: install VLC02:47
Dr_willisjedihome,  or boot the live cd. and use the ubuntu Usb-drive tool to make a bootablew thmbdrive with peristant HOME save space02:47
schristieCpudan80: do you think that restarting would fix it?02:48
DoctaEntropyChubbz, I've tried that02:48
schristieCpudan80: oh well, I might as well try it. If it doesn't work, I'll be back in ten minutes ;)02:48
jedihomeDr_willis: problem is i cant burn the live cd to begin with; otherwise i'd just install it from there02:48
exodus_mssudo apt-get install ntfs-3g02:48
aragornmrwes : where i can found it02:48
mrwesaragorn: open up a terminal - Applications | Accessories | Terminal and type sudo apt-get install vlc02:49
Dr_willisjedihome,  ive done it via virtualbox. :) but its an annoyance.. dident need to burn either.. I would just use unetbootin. if you just want to Install from usb02:49
DoctaEntropyChubbz, I created the /media/external1 directory then edited the /etc/fstab file through the terminal, but when i tried to mount it, it said i should force it, but when i did it failed02:49
Chubbzwhat was the error message from the terminal?02:49
Dr_willisDoctaEntropy,  if its a ntfs -- you may want to have a windows machine scan the disk for errors. and properly shut down02:50
jedihomeyeah Dr_willis im setting up the thumbdrive right now with unetbootin, that was a great tip - thank you02:50

DoctaEntropyDr_Willis, How should I go about doing that?02:51

Dr_willisDoctaEntropy,  do NOT use Hibernate/suspend when using shared ntfs filesytems with linux.02:52

Rustenguindoes somebody can handle this help?03:12
GodfatherofEireAny ideas as to why my bootup is taking an abnormally long? It seems to be slowing down considerably when trying to read the Multimedia controller device03:12
mysticdarkhackChubbz, I did all the update in ubuntu03:12
dreamycrdlb: what about the dri and glx not being making any difference?03:13
crdlbdreamy: with a real game or with glxgears?03:13
dreamycrdlb: or not having any driver at all ..mentioned in xorg.conf  ( no difference )03:13
dreamycrdlb: both03:13
crdlbdreamy: that's autoconfigured now03:13
crdlbdreamy: are you trying 8.10 now?03:13
albuntuhi to all. ok for some reason that i dont know i get a license error using icedtea java plugin for firefox so i removed it and i am trying to use sun java plugin but i cant find it in the repos. i am using intrepid 64 bit. anyone that can help ? thank you03:13
gloppieCould anybody check their firewall for udp 42652 ? I am seeing a bunch of traffic on that one port right now. I need confirmation. Thx03:14
dreamycrdlb: no03:14
poutinegloppie, confirmation of what?03:14
CompactDstrxionalbuntu: i dont think there is a 64-bit sun java  plugin03:14
gloppieLots of UDP hits on just one port, from a bunch of IPs03:14
gloppieudp 4265203:14
poutinegloppie, ok... but you're asking a question03:14
crdlbdreamy: then run the live cd and run: glxinfo | grep -i "software rasterizer"03:14
poutinewhat are you trying to accomplish?03:15
albuntuCompactDstrxion: ok that solved my problem. i am going to stick with icedtea03:15
CompactDstrxionnp albuntu03:15
crdlbdreamy: if that returns OpenGL Renderer String: Software Rasterizer, then your 3d acceleration is broken03:15
dreamycrdlb: to see if 8.10 is better?03:15
dreamyi quit about 8.10...03:15
gloppieI would like to know if anybody else sees the traffic I see. I am not trying to accomplish anything else.Thx03:15
somethingtodogloppie:  Did you piss off a botnet?03:15
gloppienope, I have not IRC since ages...03:16
poutinegloppie, What makes you think your traffic is indicative of our traffic?03:16
gloppie10 years ago lol03:16
gloppieI want to see if it is global03:16
dreamycrdlb: its a good idea but my cd is broken.. thanksa03:16
poutinegloppie, That's one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard03:17
poutineplease never ask such a question again03:17
gloppieI guess I'll just renew DHCP then he03:17
node357gloppie, to answer your question, no, it is not a default behavior for Ubuntu to have a lot of traffic on that port03:17
crdlbdreamy: so what OS are you using on it now?03:18
dreamycrdlb: 8.0403:18
gloppieI'm in the wrong place. Sorry guys. Thanks03:18
crdlbdreamy: what does 'glxinfo | grep direct' say?03:18

crdlbdreamy: so barring any future improvements to the driver's efficiency, it's working as well as it can03:20
dreamycrdlb: direct rendering .. is it the ultimate test ?03:20
dreamycrdlb: the "glxinfo"03:21
crdlbdreamy: in 8.04 and prior, it reliably indicates whether 3d acceleration is enabled (there can be false negatives, but never false positives afaik)03:21
=== justin_ is now known as jsmith
crdlbin 8.10, it'll always say yes, which is why you have to check for software rasterizer03:22

=== jsmith is now known as mngeek
dreamycrdlb: :S no idea03:23
dreamycrdlb: can i try removing dri ? it whould give me some clues03:23
dreamycrdlb: afterwards with the glxgears03:24
kitty_any suggestion for a ppc box?03:25
crdlbdreamy: what would that accomplish? DRI is apparently working, but that is not a powerful GPU03:25
DoctaEntropyexodus_ms: I'm in windows right now, and I've encountered some problems 1) during start up, if my external hard drive was powered on, i would get error 17 before i reached the dual boot screen 2) Now that i'm in windows, and have turned my external hard drive back on, it's not being recognized at all by windows03:26
kitty_Docta, ext2fsd ?03:27
neuraexodus, is your external hard drive recognized under ubuntu?03:27
skydartI have switched back to the Mac.03:27
Droopsta915I installed a deb.bin file. It stayed on the dektop, where should I place the file.03:28
DoctaEntropyneura, I suppose you mean me, yest it is recognized under ubuntu03:28
exodus_msDoctaEntropy: the error 17 looks like a grub error...03:28
kitty_Docta did you format it forext2?03:28
neurawell that's good03:29
DoctaEntropyexodus_ms: so what should I do?03:29

Cpudan80I asked my question about a usb thumb drive a while ago - but since nobody said much - I'll ask again03:30
exodus_msDoctaEntropy: well, I'm probably going to get in trouble for this, While you are in windoze check your external drive for errors from the command line chkdsk /F03:30
Cpudan80I have a thumb drive with stuff on it - I plug it in Ubuntu, it appears to mount OK, it says the correct info (ie. 33 files, 500 MB used ....) -- but I can't see anything.03:30
neurahmm exodus, i've never done that before03:31
Cpudan80It's a 4GB thumb drive formatted as FAT3203:31
Cpudan80all help is appreciated03:31

exodus_msDoctaEntropy: what drive lis your external hdd showing up as03:32
neuraCpudan, have you looked around your filesystem?03:32
DoctaEntropyexodus_ms: through DOS right? anyways, i get an error with chkdsk it says: Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?03:32
neuraspecifically perhaps under /media03:32
galvanizeany electrical engineers here?03:32
neuraor /mnt03:33
crdlbdreamy: yeah, but r100 also describes the series: r100, r200, r300, etc. :)03:33
Cpudan80neura: oh yeah I mean I know its mounted and everything03:33
Cpudan80it shows up on the desktop03:33
Cpudan80It just has nothing in there03:33
DoctaEntropyexodus_ms: uh, the external hdd isn't showing up at all now under windows03:33
neurao it shows on the desktop03:33
Cpudan80very odd03:33
neurawhat about if you gksudo nautilus03:33

kitty_thehook_ where do you want your random characters stored?03:33
Cpudan80ls -la (as root)03:34
kitty_doctaentropy www.google.com look for ext2fsd, its a win32 daemon for accessing ext2 partitions03:34
neuraDoctaEntropy, perhaps it would work if you boot into ubuntu, mount the volume, look at a few files, and then unmount it03:35
neurathen unplug it03:36
neurashut down03:36

exodus_msneura: have tried that already03:36
SamIamis there a way to reset an external usb hd03:37
kitty_samiam is the "failure" still listed in your dmesg ?03:38
exodus_msneura: other than connecting it back to windoze, removing it with sSafely Remove Harder and then doing a chkdsk D: /F /R, then try to mount it in Ubuntu03:39
kitty_i.e. plug it back in and see what dmesg |tail says after a few seconds03:39

ubottuitai_michaelson: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)03:40

Sam_IRCMike_92: that happened to me a while back. I don't remember what fixed it. sorry :(03:41
Hentaiexodus_ms: if you do /r then that implies /f as well, typeing chkdsk /f /r is more then needed03:41
muxpuxhi i accidently deleted /sbin/reboot03:41

muxpuxanyways to get it back03:41
somethingtodoplcTowlie:  or upgrade the firmware - a lot of consumer routers have much better firmware you can download now.03:41

irvingpopI forced the install of a package that depends on libapache2-mod-php5, which depends on apache2-mpm-prefork.   I run my webserver with apache2-mpm-worker and FastCGI, and don't want to switch back to prefork.    I forced install the package,  but now I keep getting errors that I need to run "apt-get install -f".    If I run that,  it says:   8:02pm.www ~# apt-get -f install04:09

PhantomimeI am trying to get the internet working on ubuntu, but I can't do it. I have a wireless pci card (hardware) installed in my pc. Is there a way that I can set it up so that it recognizes the hardware and recognizes the wireless network?04:11
L|nuxPS2that way the script can call on sudo to chmod but it can only do it within the file directory - that way I don't have a massive security hole04:11
Jim_RaynorI disassembled the bloody laptop, rebuilt it and somehow, errors are gone and the system is snappier04:11
Cpudan80L|nuxPS2: maybe if you use a different method of writing out the file initially04:11
L|nuxPS2don't think there is a way - the script calls on truecrypt to create a volume, mount it, then place the files the user has selected into the volume, unmounts it, then lets the user download the truecrypt file04:12
Jim_RaynorMidgets, gnomes or fairies... only explanation04:12

PeddyCpudan80, that's the only one, right? Just checking :)04:17
Cpudan80Flannel: I didnt want to hit the scary red button! I sware I didn't!04:17

Peddysrx2002, /usr/bin, for amsn.04:18
Jim_RaynorSeriously guys, there should be a logical explanation...04:18
Peddythenks Cpudan8004:18
srx2002different for each program?04:18
Jim_Raynorhow can I go from boot errors and BIOS skipping HD to better performance than 2 days ago?04:18
Peddysrx2002, well, most programs installed from the ubuntu add/remove or synpatic or apt-get are stored in /usr/bin. If you compile your own programs, they're in /usr/local/bin.04:18
PB_G3Hey guys I need help with my ORiNOCO Silver 802.11b WiFi card in ubuntu 8.04 on a PB G304:18
Jim_Raynorin 15 minutes? Only by disassembling and reassembling the laptop?04:19

CareBear\Jim_Raynor : sounds like a glitch in the hd connector04:19
srx2002peddy: ok...how would I know where each one is located for any program??  is there a command I can use to check?04:19
Cpudan80icesword: go from 7.04 --> 8.04 --> 8.1004:19
Cpudan80icesword: you can go directly from X --> 8.0404:19
Flannelicesword: You have to upgrade one at a time, yes04:19
FlannelCpudan80: No, you can't04:20
Cpudan80you cant?04:20
FlannelCpudan80: Only 6.06 to 8.0404:20
Jim_Raynorit was a fairy, dude04:20
Peddysrx2002, /usr/local/sbin, /usr/local/bin, /usr/sbin, /usr/bin, /sbin, /bin, /usr/games are where they're stored.04:20
Cpudan80that sucks04:20

Cpudan80argh FloodBot1 !04:20
iceswordCpudan80, thanks, Flannel04:20
Flannelicesword: Depends on your connection.  You'll have to download ~600MB each upgrade04:20
Peddysrx2002, Sorry, there is definitely a command, but I've forgotten it. Does anyone else know how to determine where an executable in $PATH is located?04:21
srx2002is there a command to check...for example I wanna know where " firefox " is located?04:21
Peddysrx2002, firefox is /usr/bin by default.04:21
iceswordholy.... hahaha, that sucks. guess I can downgrade to 6.06... lol04:21
Peddysrx2002, hang on, I'll have it for you in a sec04:22
srx2002Peddy: ok thanks04:22
Peddysrx2002, the command is "type -p firefox"04:23

Hilikuswhat can i use to burn a dvd? something with a GUI please04:25
jedimindlappymsttcorefonts doesnt offer Tahoma and a couple of other fonts, i vaguely remember there being another package that does though - can anyone refresh my memory real quick?04:25
PeddyHilikus, there is a tool included from 8.04 onwards called 'Brasero'04:25
Hilikusi mean, files to a dvd, not actually a movie04:25
mr_politejust dropping in to let everyone i was speaking to earlier know that ive successfully "downgraded" back to 8.04.04:25
PB_G3Hilikus, K3B!04:25
PeddyHilikus, Brasero is the easiest to use IMO.04:25
scuniziHilikus, k3b for all of the above04:25
dportI have a quick question, I just started using Ubuntu and i've got a slight grip on things so far. But i'm trying to get adobe to update04:26
mr_politeanother vote for k3b04:26
dportHow do I go about doing that?04:26
dportI already downloaded it04:26
scunizidport, adobe? what reader?04:26
plcTowliedport, try the medibuntu repositry?04:26
Hilikusi guess i'll give k3b a try04:26
srx2002Peddy: If I wanted to prevent someone from using for example MSN while I'm away from my PC...is there a command for that?04:26
* Peddy doesn't user brasero, anyway. :D04:26
Hilikusthanks guys04:26
Guest56803i do not think i have wireless radios - it is a linksys wireless card i put in PCMCI port04:26
usserdport: what adobe, flashplayer? what version of ubuntu you are using?04:26
scuniziGuest56803, that's a wireless radio04:27
bullgard4What is meant by 'raw Ethernet'?04:27
Peddysrx2002, as in block Pidgin from being used entirely?04:27
vegombreiGuest56803: why dont you go thru the properties and see if theres something you can do there in its options04:27

Flannelsleepy_cat: You need to go to software sources and select "Every release" (as opposed to just LTS) from one of the tabs04:28

scunizigerber, yes.. most .. I'm running it on a vostro 1400 laptop04:29
scunizigerber, yes.. most .. I'm running it on a vostro 1400 laptop04:29
Peddysrx2002, do you mean programs or files?04:29

sleepy_catnickrud: hi04:31
jedimindlappynevermind found it04:31
iceswordFlannel, it seems I have to bother with install from windows04:31
Guest56803my wireless was workingfing tine until i installed the updates04:31
Peddysrx2002, you could just make a seperate account for your kids/siblings/parents that doesn't have permission to access those files. Fast user switching is really fast, and you can stay logged in.04:31
gerberi install it on win xp04:31
Guest56803now i keep getting authentication request04:31
marryjanei'm ThinkPan x200 (intel wifi 5100) nice conncetion04:31
Guest56803each time i reenter password is comes back to ask again04:32
sleepy_catnickrud: I found the solutio to the problem which i had earlier regarding the hanging of the system... it was tht the X86 board does not support the graphics04:32
srx2002Peddy: good idea...so chmod 000 and 775 won't work for programs i guess04:32
sleepy_catthere is a problem there04:32
sleepy_catsome bug04:32
sleepy_catso we need to disable the graphocs options there04:32
sleepy_catthen it works perfectly04:32
sleepy_catotherwise it would not load04:32
Peddysrx2002, yes, it would, you just chmod the /usr/bin... file04:33
sleepy_catas far as the problem was.. First the screen loaded asked for username and password and then blank screen with the feasibility to hover around with the mouse04:33

sleepy_catnow its working fine04:33
sleepy_catok ubottu04:33
dawildtwigmarryjane: were you referring to my question or the one from srx?04:34
Peddysrx2002, I don't know the ids of your users, you can do 'sudo nautilus /usr/bin', then right-click on the programs, and set which users can access it. But you should make a new account first.04:34
sleepy_catHi.. I want to upgrade from 8.04 LTS to 8.10  the problem is that i cant find software sources in  System->administration04:34
dawildtwigis that a yes to me marryjane?04:34

Guest56803i can anyone help me plz04:38
Flannelsleepy_cat: Try accessing it through Synaptic04:38
scunizidawildtwig, probably not since windows doesn't run x04:38
zgmf-x20ascunizi: ok, how would i get there trhu a file browser.  i recently treid to change the vlc skin, NIGHTMARE... never again..04:39
sleepy_catFlannel how?04:39
dawildtwigscunizi, so in a windows to windows using openssh would it work or do you think not?04:39
scunizizgmf-x20a, let me check if that is the location .. what's the default skin called?04:39
Flannelsleepy_cat: Open up synaptic, and one of the items in the menu will get you to a repository/etc screen04:39
zgmf-x20ascunizi: i have no idea, im looking for it too....04:40
dawildtwigscunizi, i'm really trying to figure out the advantages of using ssh at all if everything is from command just turns it all into a pain in the ass if you know what i mean04:40
scunizidawildtwig, I son't think that openssh actually runs on windows.. other programs do the ssh thing .04:40
scunizidawildtwig, ssh is for privacy and protection04:40
sleepy_catFlannel: i didnt get u properly04:42
scunizizgmf-x20a, /usr/share/vlc/skins2 looks to be the location of the skins.. command line was faster finding it.. (sudo updatedb  ... locate vlc)04:42
zgmf-x20ascunizi: i found it.... but it wont change to it.... this is a night mare... honestly... i hate the author who made this skin... HATE.  i have tried uninstalling, reinstalling, but its like perm messed up now04:42
zgmf-x20ascunizi: lol, same time04:43
Flannelsleepy_cat: Open up synaptic, in one of the menus theres an item to modify the repositories.  I believe that opens up software sources.04:43
bukowskii'm trying to configure compiz through compiz manager but i cant get out what this super key means.04:44
scunizizgmf-x20a, I've never messed with skins .. with vlc I'm either listening or watching not examining the boarder.. but I know what you mean about look and feel..04:44
jansenbukowski: super key usually refers to the "windows" key on your keyboard.04:44
sleepy_catFlannel:  I found repository04:44
sleepy_catin the menu04:45
sleepy_catbut it has only deb04:45
bukowskioh thnx04:45

tanathanyone recently try to update clam virus defs via clamtk? doesn't work for me...04:45
CareBear\thanks for the help.04:45
scunizizgmf-x20a, the location it goes is part of root. .you might need to change the permissions of the file.04:46
zgmf-x20ais there a way i can COMPLETELY uninstall vlc, like, EVERYTHING, so it has no memory it was ever installed, so when i install again it will be fine04:46
phorensic3zgmf-x20a: skin for what?04:46
bukowski<Shift><Control>ISO_Prev_Group <- and what does this stand for?04:46
tanathzgmf-x20a, 'sudo aptitude purge vlc' and remove/rename ~/.vlc/04:47
scuniziphorensic3, zgmf-x20a is trying to change the skin for vlc04:47
phorensic3zgmf-x20a: ahh you got the ol vlc skin is stuck and ruins the play list deal?04:47
Flannelsleepy_cat: Alright, hit alt-f2, then type software-properties-gtk and hit enter, that should bring it up04:47
sleepy_catFlannel: repository is there in the setting menu04:47
phorensic3scunizi: Yes I have the same issue04:47
phorensic3scunizi: I think it must be a certain skin that screws it up04:47
jansenzgmf-x20a: have you tried editing the file ~/vlc/vlcrc? look for a section called "skins2" and comment out every line in that section.04:47
progChow can you increase the stack space on visual studio?04:47
BitfishprogC, this is #ubuntu, not ##windows04:48
FlannelprogC: this is #ubuntu, you may be looking for ##windows, or... some other channel (not the C or C++ channel, since thats IDE specfic)04:48
tanathanyone else find they can't update virus definitions in clamtk?04:48
zgmf-x20aphorensic3: YES!  its a nightmare... installled this very nice skin, but, features missing, try to get back, and night mare.  wont let me, and when i move the new skin file, always has an error and wont open the skin, but an x11 video player window opens and plays, with no actual playtime bar or anything04:48
zgmf-x20aits so wack.... im going to try one more thing before complete annhilation04:49
phorensic3zgmf-x20a: Is it a windows look alike skin?04:49
zgmf-x20awindoze..... ewww04:49
tanathphorensic3, it's doubtful you'll need to reinstall it. removing or renaming your ~/.vlc folder should do the trick04:49
phorensic3zgmf-x20a: ahh crap the problem is on my laptop not this pc04:50
zgmf-x20ait just went so nice with my blackish motif going on here.  just installed cairodock, liking it, and tried to have it go along with the environment04:50

shizumasa14yes,  and MSN for that matter04:56
sleepy_catdont click on tht04:56
tanathshizumasa14, xchat is an IRC client. yahoo messenger is a different protocol and requires a different app04:56
david_Does anyone know if I can get 3D acceleraton on my Chrome integrated graphics card? I've been searching the internet  for atleast a week trying to find a solution to no satisfaction04:56
shizumasa14okay, thanks.04:56
sleepy_cati guess there is an option in the system to install onto pendrive or something.. try tht nabcore04:57
tanathshizumasa14, pidgin seems to be the best chat client. supports multiple protocols04:57
shizumasa14okay,  thanks.04:57
phorensic3tanath: Thats a good idea.. when I get back on my laptop Ill check it out04:57
scunizishizumasa14, xchat is an irc client not a messaging client.. use pidgin.. it's already installed and under applications>Internet. It'll connect to most everything.. including here.04:57
tanathshizumasa14, best for linux anyway. there's also digsby for windows, which runs somewhat decently with wine04:57

phorensic1zgmf-x20a: Yah I was having trouble finding it too05:03
tanathzgmf-x20a, purging removes the application and system-wide config files. removing/renaming ~/.vlc gets rid of user configs for it05:03
scunizizgmf-x20a, if you're using nautilus to look. .hit ctrl+h to reveal the hidden directory05:03

jxanderi'm trying to make sudo and gksu to work without me entering a password. I've added the line "jxander ALL=NOPASSWD: ALL" to /etc/sudoers, but I still have to enter the password. user jxander is in group jxander. What am I missing?05:48

ryanpriorHow do I tell a process which CPU core (s) to run on?05:50
jxanderscunizi: :)) yeah, funny... i know it's true too :P05:50
scuniziwerdnum, if you engineer the sys so you don't have to use a password when using sudo?  that won't hurt your security?05:50
rwwjxander: 1) That's not a great idea. 2) You should be using the visudo command, not editing the sudoers file directly. 3) Instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#Remove%20Password%20Prompt%20For%20sudo (maybe log out and log back in?)05:51
tritiumscunizi: that's a poor use of the term "engineer"05:51

Knightrousjxander: If I'm doing any length terminal work, and don't want to have to enter my root pass everytime I need to run a command, I use "sudo su"05:57

jockey8788what i must do now to make them work and make ubuntu's fonts look like window's06:00
tritiumsudo -i and sudo su - are equivalent, and give you root's environment configuration, which is what you typically want when you use it as suck.06:00
tanathjockey8788, have you logged out or rebooted since installing them?06:00

tanathbullgard4, tells you the type of interface. should say ethernet for most. some are loopback...06:06
tanathbullgard4, that's an ethernet network device. the HWaddr is the MAC address06:07
tanathbullgard4, ath0 is the name of the device06:07
Tweak66has anyone gotten the guitar hero guitar working with fretsonfire ubuntu 8.10?06:08

Take mysql-server as an example, it stops up and waits for the user to type in the desired root password. While I would like to set it manually afterwards so I can script the install..06:10
tanathbullgard4, ethernet is a common network connection type, using ethernet cables.06:10

tanathbullgard4, encapsulation is about protocol/header info06:12
tanathbullgard4, an ethernet connection only exists on network cards, basically. and as part of the protocol, requires a mac address. there's no mac address though for loopback06:13
bullgard4tanath: Yes. That's what I think too. So what information does the entry "Link encap:Ethernet" convey?06:13

tonyyarussowerdnum: Many Thinkpads are reasonably compatible (I'm on one now), but those three URLs will give you machines that are officially supported with Ubuntu pre-installed.06:43
Knightrouswerdnum: I have an old X23 thinkpad, runs 8.10 fine, a tad slow with 256mb PC133, but it handles it faster then when WinXP & SP2 was on it06:43
n8tuserholyguyver-> the name does not give you a hint?  but mkfs  with the correct option as last resort if you cant find the hint06:43
werdnumtonyyarusso: I don't necessarily want something pre-installed.06:43
werdnumI'm a reasonably advanced user, I don't mind getting my hands dirty.06:43
tonyyarussowerdnum: Why not?06:43
Frostiok so by that logic i would need to boot the server cd, do what i need with LVM, then boot a desktop cd and install overtop of the server install? or am i missing something here06:44
werdnumtonyyarusso: Better choice.06:44
holyguyvern8tuser, my hints are confusing.06:44
tonyyarussowerdnum: Oh, you can re-install and tweak to your preferences obviously, but those will *guarantee* hardware compatibility.06:44
holyguyverI wish Baughn was here to help me.06:45

ubottuFrosti: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:45
holyguyvern8tuser, it is actually not there06:45
n8tuserholyguyver-> type mk and press tab twice to see the commands06:45
holyguyvern8tuser, I did that06:46
=== RonaldH is now known as Ronald
holyguyvern8tuser, I did that the first time you told me to06:46
n8tuserholyguyver-> what commands do you see on the list?06:46
holyguyvern8 the command is not there mke2fs is there but mke3fs is not there06:46
d0netsFNblkid: http://pastebin.com/m25f9f88f | fdisk -l : http://pastebin.com/m17843f59 | device.map : http://pastebin.com/m1a1f9e40 | menu.lst : http://pastebin.com/mb8ea7d406:46
d0netsFNwith all that, could someone help me figure out why im getting error 22 when booting grub?06:47
n8tuserholyguyver-> why do you insist on mke3fs ?  read the list again please06:47
D-vine18so... does ubuntu 8.10 have more hardware options then 8.04 ...or how do i get a Restricted device to wrok?06:47
holyguyvern8tuser, I have read the list again & again & again mke3fs is not there. & I insist on mke3fs because that is what Baughn instructed me to use.06:48
FrostiBy my understanding, if i wish to use LVM i have to use a server cd. while if i wish to use desktop ubuntu afterwards i can simply install it overtop the server install. or is there a better way (this is to whoever can help)06:48
n8tuserholyguyver-> then Baughn was wrong to give you that command06:48
holyguyvern8tuser, then can you please help me?06:48
amhim using ubuntu 8.10 and everytime i reboot i get a something that says "enter password for default kingring to unlock network manager applet".  im trying to run this machine remotely so it's a pain when this popsup without a monitor attached.  can anyone explain how to remove this dialog box?06:49
n8tuserholyguyver-> id like to help who help themselves, its on the list my friend, read the list of commands06:49
holyguyvern8tuser, but if he was wrong about that, he might have given me the wrong commons all the way down making mk anything useless.06:49
n8tuserholyguyver-> if you wish, you can do a man  of each of those commands to give you a clearer picture06:49
Flanneln8tuser: When helping, please be helpful.06:50
n8tuserFlannel-> i gave him the list of the commands, all he has to do is read them..06:50
holyguyvern8tuser, I am trying to say that now with him being wrong about that I am lost I do not know what to do at all & I have no commands to use at all nor any instructions, only a problem that you do not know about.06:50
l337ingDisorderprince_jammys: what was that for loop you gave me half an hour ago? I've been fiddling with my own for loop and it just isn't working...06:50
n8tuserholyguyver-> i would be able to give you a command if I dont know about the issues.. correct06:51
holyguyverSo n8tuser may I tell you what I want to do, so that I can be instructed what I have to do?06:51

sebsebsebmirc ok06:53
starfruit_Vi_, ok06:54
Frosti[to whoever can help me] am i correct in thinking: boot server disk >> use LVM >> finish server install >> boot desktop disk >> overwrite server install >> conclusion = drive with LVM partitions and desktop install on it??????????06:54
n8tuserholyguyver-> disk recovery is not my expertise, ill be guessing what i would be telling you on how to repair that06:54
FlannelFrosti: No.  Get alternate CD, boot to it, install using LVM, you're done.06:54
amhari_stress: im having an issue with the machine not getting on the network automatically because it's wireless and keeps asking me to enter in the root password before it connects.  how do i get it online to use vnc if i can't get it to connect automatically via wireless?06:54
holyguyvern8tuser, So now you are saying that your hints are not good? :p06:55
Tekumelsebsebseb: /join #ubuntu-nl06:55
FrostiFlannel: what is this "alternate CD" you speak of06:55
_Vi_!alternative | Frosti06:55
n8tuserholyguyver-> no, when you asked about making a filesystem of ext3  the commands are listed from the hint i gave you06:55
ubottuFrosti: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the alternate link on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal - Torrent at http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.10/ubuntu-8.10-alternate-i386.iso.torrent06:55
FlannelFrosti: instead of the "desktop" cd, it's the "alternate" CD.  http://releases.ubuntu.com/  has them available alongside the desktop and server CDs06:56
ari_stressamh: it's the gnome-keyring thing, we can set it to use unencrypted data, so that it won't ask for password for wireless06:56
holyguyvern8tuser, but I do not want to make a ext3 filesystem06:56
jpabloHi there ...I tried configure ubuntu 8.10 but when I need delete a folder said me "read-only file system"06:56
gfdewqhonestly, why haven't we had sex yet?06:56
amhari_stress:  where do i set that ?06:56
jpabloI tried whith several ways to delete but is impossible to delete06:56
_Vi_jpablo: what folder exactly?06:56
n8tuserholyguyver-> the way you post the question, thats how it came across -- you wanted to make a ext3 file system06:56
jpabloa folder that I create in /home06:57
l337ingDisorderhas anyone been logging this channel for the past hour or so?06:57
Flannelholyguyver: Whats wrong with just using gparted?06:57
FrostiFlannel: so its just like the desktop cd except the GUI is all text instead. as in i don't need to treat it like a terminal just select options i need?06:57
ari_stressamh: lol, i cannot find it anymore06:57
FlannelFrosti: Yes.  It asks you the exact same questions, and you use the arrow keys instead of the mouse to select things.06:57
prince_jammysl337ingDisorder: for dir in /mnt/Documents\ and\ Settings/*/Application\ Data/Thunderbird/Profiles/*/; do cp somefile "$dir"; done06:57
holyguyvern8tuser, Yes I know the commands are listed from that hint & as said I did it & read it the first time you gave it. But I do not want to make an ext3 filesystem. I was only asking about that because that is what Baughn told me to do. I actually want an ntfs filesystem, but he said I should not.06:57
FrostiFlannel: perfect, thank you06:57
l337ingDisorderprince_jammys: awesome, thanks again :)06:58
amhso it's impossible to connect to a ubuntu machine remotely on wireless?06:58
prince_jammysl337ingDisorder: welcome06:58
transportercan somebody help me upgrade my alsa drivers?06:58
holyguyverFlannel, I asked Baughn if I could use gparted & he said that would not remap my harddrive.06:58
l337ingDisorderprince_jammys: that's much simpler than what I was trying ;)06:58
jpablo_Vi_: And I tried give permissions to the folder with chmod but said me "Read-only file system"06:58
n8tuserholyguyver-> im not going to be of help to you, as I told you disk recovery is not my expertise06:58
transportercan somebody help me to upgrade my alsa drivers06:59

n8tuseramh-> what made you believe that wireless connectivity prevents you from connecting?07:03
_Vi_jpablo: hmm donno why it would do that exactly, there's not much you CANNOT do when you use 'sudo' before a command, :)07:03
transportercan somebody help me upgrade my alsa drivers07:03

Flannelholyguyver: You'll use mke2fs and badblocks, not mke3fs07:04
transportertweak66 tried that it doesn't upgrade my alsa drivers07:04
n8tuseramh that has nothing to do with using wireless eh? its the keyring being faulty07:04
ubottuIf 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 !MP307:04
holyguyverAlright Flannel can you PM me with the instructions?07:04
darkhamhey people, why if i can install in my ubuntu other desktop environments with synaptic, i can install all the packages needed, but if i want uninstall, i can't uninstall all the packages?07:04
Flannelholyguyver: Also, the second paragraph mentions that you won't be calling badblocks directly, but you'll just specify the mke2fs flag.07:04
amhn8tuser: so i can access this server on wireless remotely if it's not set to auto login?07:05
transportercan somebody help me upgrade my alsa drivers07:05
n8tuseramh -> you seem to get the two confused, auto login and wireless are two different things07:05
Tidusdarkham: use the package 'kubuntu-desktop' / 'xubuntu-desktop' to install all of them. aptitude will track the dep that way07:05
Flannelholyguyver: You'll use mke2fs with at least -c and -j (that tests for bad blocks and makes ext3, respectively)  as for the other options, you'll have to peruse the mke2fs man page yourself.  I'm not familiar with it.07:05
amhn8tuser: i know they are..  i was trying to use both together..  but it appears one cannot autologin and have it automaically connect to the wireless due to a keyring issue.07:06
Knightroustransporter: open a terminal, type "sudo apt get update" when it is done, type "sudo apt get upgrade" This will give you the latest updates.07:06
holyguyverFlannel, can you please PM me the instructions so that I can have them for as long as I need them?07:06
darkhamTidus, i try.07:06
transporterKnightrous: alright lemme try07:06
Flannelholyguyver: No, I don't know the instructions.  I just know you'll be using mke2fs with -c and -j07:07
n8tuserFlannel -> not to annoy you, but why are you telling the man to RTFM ? and yet when i advised him so you get furious?07:07
Tidusdarkham: which desktop environment are you trying to remove?07:07
amhok, now i've got a REAL problem..  i took off auto login and restarted...  now at the dekstop login i continuously get a "authentication failed" popup.. even though i havent typed in anything..  it looks like in the username it has "...".  how the heck to i get rid of this?07:07

holyguyverFlannel, this was the command Baughn give me 'mke3fs -c /dev/sdg1'07:07
Knightroustransporter: Sorry, I typod.. Should be " type "sudo apt get update" when it is done, type "sudo apt get upgrade"07:08
Flanneln8tuser: The mannerism is entirely different.  You were offering no support at all besides "heres a list of commands, read their man pages"07:08
holyguyverFlannel, Baughn did not specify -j07:08
Flanneln8tuser: If you'd like to discuss it, you're welcome to come do so in #ubuntu-ops, but its offtopic for this channel.07:08
jpablo_Vi_: OK thanks...I have other err...When I tried reboot the system said me "An automatic file system check (fsck) of the root filesystem failed07:08
Tidusdarkham: execute the command i am pming you07:08
magikfingerzDarkTerror, try passing parameter noapic, do you know how...? :)07:08
Flannelholyguyver: mke3fs doesn't exist.  mke2fs with -j makes an ext3 filesystem.07:09

ubottuchilli0: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude --disable-columns --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate07:11
Tidusn8tuser: mke3fs does NOT exist. the command to make an ext3 file system is mke2fs -j07:11

n8tuserTidus-> i knew that, if you came in late, read back please07:11
Flannelholyguyver: Please drop it.  It's not important.07:12
DarkTerror@magikginerz, i actually selected noapic, nolapic, and acpi=off ... all 3 ... still didn't work.. should i try with just noapic and nolapic ?07:12
holyguyverFlannel, I am sorry but I disagree repairing this harddrive is important.07:12

rstecklerbut it seems odd that any script can just not exit, and the rest of the scripts are screwed and can't startup.07:28

ubottuWhen a program or configure script asks for "X includes", you should probably install the following package: xorg-dev09:04

Slartamh: but so far I've managed to connect via ssh and then starting the vnc server from there.. then I can connect10:15

kinja-sheepSlart: I get compiz, compiz.real, compiz-decorato10:51
Slartkinja-sheep: I think that compiz.real is the thing you're looking for.. so you're running compiz10:52

srx2002Action: do I have to open it it with gedit or something10:53

srx2002but i forget what file10:54
phorensicActionParsnip: can you pipe the output of pwd so that it becomes the parameters of gksudo nautilus??10:54
taviwell don't bother i will find the solution10:54
ActionParsnipphorensic: you could use nautilus 'pwd' &10:55
phorensicActionParsnip: IE gksudo nautilus <directory obtained from pwd>10:55
kinja-sheepSlart:  oven/dev/bin -- Was the plan.  Got any useful packages I should be trying?  I'm killing time here.10:55

srx2002I thought it was scd010:58
srx2002or something like that10:58
fixnumphorensic, the '&' means it will run in the background i think10:58
srx2002and someone told me there was a command or open a file and it will tell me what drives are where10:59

ActionParsnipU-b-u-n-t-u: if you turn off your firewall is it ok? Can you ping / traceroute other sites ok11:39
phorensic1ubundude: so something like cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf > /media/thumbfoldername/file.txt  ActionParsnip would this be correct?11:39
U-b-u-n-t-uevery site comes up fine except that one11:39

U-b-u-n-t-ubut either will open it unless firestarter is off11:39
phorensic1ubundude: I haven't used the command so lets make sure its correct11:40
phorensic1oCean_: can you say if this command is correct? cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf > /media/thumbfoldername/file.txt11:40
ActionParsnipphorensic1: you can just cp it, cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /media/thumbfoldername/file.txt11:41
phorensic1oCean_: purpose to output the xorg configinto a file on a usbthumb drive so he can paste it (this pc has no net connection)11:41

HfuyProblem with wireless on an eee-pc running 8.04. Worked last night; fired it up this morning and set everything up as normal (it forgets passwords every time). Wireless router shows its MAC as an active client but no connectivity (can't ping, no web, etc)11:47
andy12345aplay -l ?11:47
oCean_andy12345: sure. If it's more than a single line, don't paste output here, but use paste.ubuntu.com, thx. "lspci | grep -i audio"11:47
Darkcloudi dont do everything via wine, just alot of the windows based programs because linux lacks the windows API's11:47
ActionParsniplomdav: what about it?11:47
HfuyWireless network is a B+G access point using WPA2(AES) with a password. Usually works fine.11:47
HfuyWe've rebooted both the router and the eee.11:48
oCean_andy12345: also "aplay -l"11:48
HfuyTried re-inserting settings on both devices.11:48
ubundudephorensic: so..............................?11:48
HfuyStill no joy - we're out of ideas. Any hints?11:48
ActionParsnipHfuy: have you installed and configured the wpa supplicant?11:48
Darkcloudwhen you convert from another OS its more likely you have more windows programs than linux11:48
HfuyI've absolutely no idea what that means, ActionParsnip - but it worked last night. It's been working for weeks.11:48
CompactDstrxiondarkcloud many native linux programs offer the same functionality as their windows counterparts11:48
HfuySuddenly it won't.11:48

yellowtapeHi all. I've  got an app which requires java6 so I'm trying to install it. After performing "sudo aptitude install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-plugin sun-java6-font11:49
ActionParsnipHfuy: anything you want, just something different11:49
ActionParsnipHfuy: when you reboot you can reconfigure the settings11:49
HfuyOh hm. Setting it to DHCP seems to solve the problem.11:49
yellowtape" doing java -version still tells me 1.511:49
U-b-u-n-t-uActionParsnip it lets me connect to any site with either firefox or opera except that one I have outbound set to permissive.. but firefox and opera will only connect to it when firestarter is off... its odd11:49
HfuyNot that we really wanted DHCP.11:49
PorametHay  Which unit of share memory kernal (shmmax)?  bit or byte?11:49
ActionParsnipHfuy: i'd also check your wpa settings to make double sure they are  sound11:49
andy12345oCean_ : here you go http://paste.ubuntu.com/110244/11:49
oCean_Poramet: bytes i guess11:49
ubundudephorensic: and how do i figure out what the thumbdrive will be called11:50
PorametoCean_: really?11:50
HfuyActionParsnip: We've reentered them a dozen times, since it forgets them every time.11:50
HfuyAt least it forgets the password.11:50
HfuyKnown bug, apparently.11:50
Darkcloudi never said that linux is lacking anything, i know they are great counterparts to windows infact i beleive they are better, however i only have windows based apps that ive purchased; and i didnt think i was going to switch but then i decided to because of the lack of trust and vunerability inside windows products11:50
phorensic1ubundude: you';; have to look around.. you can look in mount.. or i think fdisk will display a list of drives and their locations11:51
oCean_andy12345: for ati there is a pretty nice howto at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto But maybe you've been there11:51
Darkcloudergo, i use wine alot for running programs that are windwos based =X11:51
ActionParsnipHfuy: try renamng the file and rebooting, you will then have to reconnect the link11:51
HfuyWe'll leave it alone.11:51
HfuyIt works.11:51
ActionParsnipHfuy: i dont use wpa, i think its a massive pain11:51
PorametoCean_:thank you11:51
HfuyActionParsnip: I was looking for something with "AES" in it, as I understand AES is still secure.11:52
phorensic1ActionParsnip: whats the command to list all drives present?11:52
yellowtapeSo, I guess my question is, do I need to remove Java 5 first? Or update some java configs?11:52
andy12345oCean_ , thats video I am talking about sound pal, please read my post11:53

ActionParsnipphorensic1: sudo fdisk -l11:53
HfuyActionParsnip: Goodo.11:53
quibbleryellowtape, I would uninstall 5 and reinstall 611:53
ActionParsnipHfuy: wpa2 will use a different method if its peer to peer11:53
phorensic1ActionParsnip: ahh i wasn't doing sudo no wonder it wasn't displaying correctly11:53
ActionParsnipphorensic1: yeah all fdisk stuff needs sudo11:54
phorensic1ubundude: yah do a sudo fdisk -l to list the drives11:54
HfuyActionParsnip: It's an accesspoint.11:54
phorensic1ActionParsnip: I should have thought of that.. it makes sense11:54
ActionParsnipphorensic1: it also shows the partitions on the drives11:54
HfuyIt's a Sitecom WL-130 in accesspoint mode, anyway.11:54
oCean_andy12345: yes, i just saw that too... moment searching for another thread, that was useful to me11:54
ActionParsnipHfuy: then if you are using wpa2 it will use aes11:54

kiwi_ukin fact, does anyone have Apache 2 running under Ubuntu now? I've got a really odd problem and I'd like to see if it exists on servers other than mine!12:16
zirodaykiwi_uk: if you ask us the actual question we'll be able to tell you12:16
ubundudephorensic: i just can't do it....................12:16
kiwi_ukfair nuff. the problem is that if you request a resource such as https://server/example/, apache will quite happily return example.php in its place, assuming the directory doesn't exist12:17
kiwi_ukit'll also return example.html if there is no example.php. If I create the example directory, apache returns an empty directory listing as you'd expect12:17
ActionParsnipmalmgren80: you could also consult the HCL12:17

malmgren80ActionParsnip: What is HCL?12:18
ubundudephorensic: either that doesn't exist or this doesn't exist and god i'm so lost12:18
oCean_kinja-sheep: maybe when you add device name? like /usr/bin/eject /dev/scd0 ? It seems a bit strange to me..12:18

BlackiIs there no option in the GUI based Networkmanager to disable automatic connection to wlan networks anymore ?12:20

kiwi_ukziroday, no. I have totally disabled mod_rewrite and it still happens.12:24
oCean__Andy_: so, most of 'em work for linux, but we have to find out (again and again) which options to use etc12:24
