Until_It_SleepsBut I will take the easy fix for now until I can nail down how to use Terminal00:00
jedimindlappyBLZ: could it be because im connected wirelessly? i dont see why that should matter though00:00
BLZgnufs:  i guess the dirty hack would be to install ubuntu and remove everything you don't want00:01
BLZjedimindlappy:  maybe that's just to configure vpn servers?  i dunno00:01
nempcan someone help mi with compiling driver for graphic card?00:01

YankDownUnderAnyone know about how much of a d/l it takes to apt-get all the KDE stuff?00:06
jedimindlappythis much |----------------------------------------|00:06
ryanpriorgnufs: The Free Software Foundation's gNewSense project has spawned a collection of scripts which can be used to remove non-free bits from Ubuntu, however.00:06
YankDownUnderjedimindlappy, Wow...way cool... ;)00:06
carpiiYank, its not a huge amount00:07
ryanpriorgnufs: Get in contact with them to get a sense of how up-to-date it is with the latest Ubuntu releases.00:07

jedimindlappyin 8.10 in the network manager at the top i click and goto VPN Conntection > Configure VPN - and it pops up the Network Connections dialogue, except that i cant click "Add" in the VPN tab, its grayed out - all the other networking options let me Add connections .... am i missing something ? anyone want to venture a guess?00:07
YankDownUndercarpii, Not huge - er...ok...I'm not huge...so in relation to er...?00:07
gnufsryanprior: i _am_ a gNewSense user and contributor :-)00:07

usr13fluitfries_: Sounds like a hardware issue.00:31
geoffrianI did that.  It said 599Mhz00:31
puntoyour bios thinks that the IDE drive is hda00:32
usr13fluitfries_: Make sure your PC is set to boot the correct drive.00:32
walbertmatt: probably when kubuntu 9.4 comes out00:32
puntothey usually have an option to swap them00:32

JesperHansengeoffrian: And you're bios info also says 1.2GHz or 599MHz?00:32
puntofluitfries_: yeah, but when there's an ide present, it shows up as hda, so even if you boot from the sata one, it'll think the ide is hda00:33

robertzhow do i make my webcam framerate faster? is it possible?00:33

ubuntuuser234234robertz, it is never going to be faster than it says on the box...00:33
geoffrianThe BIOS says that it is a 1.2Ghz processor along with the Gnome System Monitor, but typing that code into the terminal says 599.8Mhz00:34

fluitfries_usr13: when i first installed linux i tried to install grub to the first boot device, but it never worked until i unplugged all the ides and just installed grub to the sata.00:34
usr13fluitfries_: In other words, unplug the new drives and make the changes and then plug them back in.  But be suer and take a snapshot of the current configuration to see what needs to be done.00:34
matt____walbert: sO NOT MUCH LONGER...I'LL WAIT!00:34
JesperHansengeoffrian: I am thinking it was just a fluke00:35

geoffrianThe gnome applet CPU Freq Scaling Monitor says 599Mhz.  That is when I first discovered it00:36
fluitfries_usr13: ok, so if i boot off the live cd, i can use the gui to manage grub?00:37
usr13fluitfries_: You may have a hardware issue.  Something configured wrong, jumper in wrong place,  defective hardware, etc.00:37
geoffrianJesperHansen: It's confusing why Ubuntu doesn't use the full power.00:38
fluitfries_usr13: possibly, but i'm pretty sure it's not that.  i haven't tinkered with it enough to declare a hardware issue, since i don't even know how to reinstall/manage grub.  :)00:38
usr13fluitfries_: Try the recovery option and look at the situation, see that all the drives are accessable and what order they are in and how they are named, etc and just go from there.00:38

un_daveAspire: neither am i so far, but the fact that windows can do it, while linux cannot, annoys me. as far as i can tell, the issue is waking up a suspended system.03:38

un_daveryanprior: it does seem like voodoo03:39
StarheroSound works in everything. After getting rid of PA that is, since that really mess things up it seems.03:39
StarheroJust that the notifications (or sound themes as you might know them) don't seems to work03:39
un_daveryanprior: windows xp can obviously tell the hardware to suspend for a predefined time, then wake up, whereas in linux i've not yet found any way of doing this03:40
redvamp128atat:  I would start there as well as the main page which shows how to configure compiz== run the compiz check to make sure compiz is installed properly--- Forlong's Blog - Compiz-Check <http://forlong.blogage.de/entries/pages/Compiz-Check>03:40

exodus_msare there specific drivers I need to install if I want to mount an external hdd via eSATA on Ubuntu 8.1003:41
Aspireun_dave: I imagine that a suspend to ram system should last hours to days on minimal battery.  technically only the dram should be refreshed during this time, if you're waiting for some timer to expire, you're waking up the processor or some special logic circuit to do the calculation to wake-up03:41
root______kaimerra maybe blacklist ata_piix and rebuild the initramfs ?03:42
ryanpriorun_dave: If you feel like digging, mess with the WinXP driver and see what signals it sends when you suspend, then try duplicating them in the Linux driver and see what works.03:42
ryanpriorun_dave: That's the black magic way to do it, anyway -- you could always email the vendor and ask if documentation is available, or could be made available, for that feature.03:42
KungfuJoeHey, I'm having issues with my dual monitor. When the X is reset, it loads my panels on the secondary monitor, also, fullscreen apps like to start on the secondary, any fix?03:43

ryanpriorun_dave: I'm not a very knowledgeable Windows hacker, but you might find one in ##windows.03:44
StarheroThe flickering, seems to look like a refresh as in it lasts only maybe 100 to 300 milliseconds. It has no obvious cycle (not repeating in any logical order) just that is repeat between 30 seoncds to 1 min. It does not do anything like that before boot or at the login screen(least I haven't really noticed it at the login screen) The device is a nvidia 7700 GO in a Asus G1,and the drivers in use are the recomended (177).03:45
ryanpriorStarhero: are you using Compiz? If so, does the flickering still happen in Metacity?03:46
StarheroYes I am using compiz, but what exactly is metacity and how do I test that. (assuming that it is x server with out compiz?)03:47

primeHello, I got a odd issue with installing VIsta on top of my dominanting Ubuntu setup. Just can't get vista to take the partition I set aside from it regardless if its ntfs or whatever.04:26
_Andy_Heya any suggestion here guys/Gamers?? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=663002404:27
primeseems vista won't install on a extened-logical partition? is this correct?04:27
GneaProse: they usually start with mkfs, so if you type:  sudo mkfs<tab><tab>  it should list them for you04:27
ProseGnea: thanks ;)04:27
mishuGnea ... when i double click it, i want it to open in a python terminal .. and i would also want to have a way to open it in IDLE, from the drop-down of the file04:27
Flannelprime: That may be accurate, yeah.  ##windows will likely know for sure04:27
primeok cheers04:27
Gneamishu: okay, I don't know what IDLE is... also, python doesn't have a terminal... are you talking about having it run in a debugging mode that uses the terminal as an output of the debugging info?04:28

mishuGnea .. uhm .. i guess? in windows, python runs in a terminal of it's own, not os terminal (not by going to os terminal and typing "python script.py")04:31
mishunvm .. i know i'm being rather confusing04:31
Gneamishu: ah, okay - i've never used python in windows before. :)  I suppose it depends on the program that you're trying to run... is it fairly well-known or a project you're working on?04:32

EMPulsehey guys05:01
Flannelubundude: You need to make a volume group ontop of the PV.  PVs go into a VG which gets split up into LVs (Logical Volumes)05:01
EMPulseDoes anyone know if there's an gnome client for TOR?05:01
ubundudejtaji: after i select "create volume group" it shows me the only current volume and i can't select it. i try pressing enter and it just says i haven't selected a volume and it aborts and brings me back to the previous menu05:01

Snipes44anyone know how to get vnc to start at boot, before local login. Trying to be able to login to my file server with out having to do a local login. I have done some searching and most of the guides seem to be old (2006).05:03
dubihey gud day all, anyone nice enough to tell a newbie what the reverse of ripping is? see, i got a couple a mp3s i want to play on my old fashioned car cd player. thanks05:03
trimetadubi: Probably best to use the CD burning program to create an audio CD.05:04
carpiiSnipes, try starting vncserver in your init.d/rc.local maybe05:04
carpiibut i think it wants to start after x server starts, so maybe you need to find a kde way of doing it05:04
carpiior a gnome way05:04
jtajiubundude: easiest thing is probably to point you to this guide, but feel free to ask me again if there's something you don't understand http://linuxbsdos.com/2008/11/11/lvm-configuration-in-ubuntu-810/05:04
dubitrimeta, thanks, does brasero or any of the other ones convert the mp3s automatically?05:04
roger_m0zone: can u temme the command to untar the file05:04
carpiitar xzvf filename.tar05:04
m0zonei just clicked file05:04
carpiior drop the z if its not a tar.gz05:05
trimetadubi: I believe Brasero will convert them into a format your car CD player can use, if you select an Audio project.05:05
Louishow do i figure out a particular group id if i want to use the usermod command?05:05
monjaroTo phrase that in a simpler way, does anyone know how my /etc/passwd could say that zsh is my default shell, but whenever I start a shell rc comes up (with $SHELL set to rc)?05:05
Flannelubundude: You make LVM partitions on your physical harddrives (formatted as LVM), those are Physical Volumes.  You group Physical Volumes into Volume Groups (which because 'pretend' hard drives) and then you can partition the VGs into Logical Volumes, which are akin to regular partitions (which you then format as ext3, etc)  http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/linux/library/l-lvm/  explains it in paragraphs (more importantly, with pictures)05:05
dubitrimeta, aight thanks man will do so now :)05:05
trimetadubi: No problem.05:05
Snipes44carpii I have the server setup to shoe a gui login screen. Is that not x server showing that?05:06
trimetaLouis: What are you doing with usermod? Adding someone to groups? Changing their default group?05:06
ubundudeFlannel: YES I GOT IT, I didn't notice i had to use the spacebar to mark which volume i wanted to use. now that its selected i -think- i'm good so far05:07
Louistrimeta:  i want to add a user to the group "lpadmin"05:08
ubundudeFlannel: actually that page does make more sense of it too, thank you05:08
trimetaLouis: Probably best to use gpasswd instead of usermod for that.05:08
Louistrimeta:  what would the syntax be for that command?05:08
trimetaTo add user "foo" to the group "lpadmin," you'd run "gpasswd -a foo lpadmin"05:08
roger_m0zone : it says tar: You must specify one of the `-Acdtrux' options05:08
roger_Try `tar --help' or `tar --usage' for more information.05:08
Louistrimeta:  thanks a bunch05:09
trimetaLouis: No problem.05:09

plythemananyone good with samba?  I lost connection over wired network and am stealing neighbors wifi right now05:17
jef_bunturdw200169: well I followed the howto but the server wont start and its saying me too look in a syslog which i havent found a clue where it should be05:18
trimetaplytheman: Samba is a file-sharing protocol...it shouldn't be preventing your computer from connecting to your wired connection.05:18
geniiplytheman: You can restore the "factory" smb.conf file by:    sudo cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba/smb.conf.old ; sudo cp /usr/share/samba/smb.conf /etc/samba.conf                      But it sounds like something other than just a messy samba conf file.05:18
willy_I can't get my Radeon Mobility M6 LY to work, fglrx crashes to safe mode, the GUI is real choppy and I can't play fullscreen videos. Any ideas?05:19
plythemantrimeta: I followed this howto http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=202605 and realized halfway through it wasn't what I wanted to do05:19
rdw200169jef_buntu, can you post your dhcpd.conf, and the output of 'ip addr'?05:19
rdw200169jef_buntu, also, you set the interface in /etc/default/dhcpd?05:19
geniiplytheman: Apologies, the second command path should be /etc/samba/smb.conf   and NOT /etc/smb.conf05:19
trimetaplytheman: So the wired connection goes where, a windows machine? Anyway, try the command genii suggested and see if that helps.05:19

carpiiif a package has the same name in two repositories, which one will it choose to install?05:20
carpiieg, i added win repo's, but i think it may have installed the normal ubuntu rls05:21
nickrudcarpii, it will take the highest version number05:21
monjaroWhat could cause $SHELL to be set to something different than what I have in my /etc/passwd file05:21
EMPulsehey does anyone use Tork here? I think I need help configuring it05:21
rdw200169jef_buntu, you can also do that with the program pastebinit; i learned about this a few days ago i think; very useful!05:21
carpiinickrud, ok thanks. i thought maybe the order in sources.list mattered05:22
jef_bunturdw200169: ok! i see, thanks for the tip05:22
nickrudcarpediem, if the version numbers are identical, the first repository wins05:22
carpiiok thankyou05:22
rdw200169jef_buntu, for example, i did pastebinit /etc/default/dhcp3-server and it returned a link: http://pastebin.com/f333a621705:22
carpiipretty amazing that a google for 'wine' returns winehq first, then a wiki article about wine :)05:23
jef_bunturdw200169: the hcdpd directory you told me is in fact named dhcpd3-server in my conputer05:23
nickrudcarpediem, apt-cache policy <packagename> will show you the versions available, and where from05:23
carpiioh useful05:23

trimetaFezzler: You have the source for this program?05:27
linux_guyWhere can I download a modified hosts or hosts.deny file for Ubuntu?  I would like to redirect adservers and other sites to
Fezzlertrimeta: Yes05:27
linux_guyTheres no place like
Fezzlertrimeta: see link05:27
Shanixjessie, http://pastebin.com/m7488035e05:27
trimetaFezzler: OK. First, untar the source into a directory; then cd to that directory.05:27
nickrudouch linux_guy05:27
Jacroenickrud: thanks05:27
Fezzlertrimeta: done05:28
trimetaNow, check to see if there's a file called "configure" in that directory.05:28
linux_guyThere are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those that don't05:28
trimetaThe unpacked source, that is.05:28
werdnumlinux_guy: lame05:28
nickrudwho does a good bada boom here?05:28
werdnumlinux_guy: that's only two types. If you meant binary you should have said 0b1005:28
Fezzlertrimeta: yes and several configure.* files05:28

linux_guyseriously, where can i get a modified hosts file for ubuntu?05:29
nickrudouch rdw200169 :)05:29
trimetaFezzler: Don't worry about the configure.* files. While you're in the source directory, type "./configure" Note the leading . and /.05:29
werdnumlinux_guy: Step 1. sudo nano /etc/hosts, Step 2. Change it. Step 3, you have a modified hosts05:29
jessieShanix: So which version of Ubuntu?05:29
Fezzlertrimeta: sudo?05:29
Shanixjessie, hardy05:29
trimetaFezzler: The ./configure line doesn't need to be sudo'ed.05:29
chronofirehey my sound was working fine the other day now it is not. What are some possible causes?05:29
Shanixjessie, I know it has better chance to work in Intrepid, but does it have to ?05:30
linux_guywerdnum, are you suggesting that I edit it manually?05:30
Fezzlertrimeta: "Error, bison needed to build pilot-mailsync"05:30
jef_bunturdw200169: http://paste.ubuntu.com/110676/05:30
werdnumlinux_guy: I'm suggesting that your question is way too vague.05:30
werdnumWhy do you want a modified hosts?05:30
lstarnesFezzler: sudo apt-get install bison05:31
trimetaFezzler: You'll need to install bison before you can install this package, "aptitude install bison"05:31
trimetaWell, sudo aptitude install bison.05:31
NimbleRabitA bit new to linux here, if I put files into a folder say /home/myuser/Music, and then later on I mount something to that folder what happens to the files05:31
|GaiJin|anyone else here using nzb's to do your downloads with? What program are you using, and do you have a problem with the download being some empty folder not playable??05:31
jessieShanix: Sorry bout that last one. lol. anyways, check out this link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=5703118&postcount=305:31
trimetaNimbleRabit: They're hidden until you unmount the folder.05:31
prahal_NimbleRabit, they are hidden05:31
linux_guyI would like to block adservers and other crap in my web browser05:31
NimbleRabitokay, is there a way to get them to automatically get transferred to the mounted location?05:31
FifeAnyone use picasa out there (not through WINE)... It seemed to index my files weird.  I'm new to linux and a little confused.05:31
prahal_linduxed, adblock extension05:32

rdw200169jef_buntu, in short; the dhcpd server will *not* start if there is not a) and entry in /etc/default/dhcp3-server that matches b) the subnet existing on the device05:32

=== dzup is now known as dzup-beback
Shanixjessie, I was more looking for a native way to get it working05:32
linux_guyI always downloaded a modified HOSTS file from these guys: http://www.mvps.org/winhelp2002/hosts.htm for use in windows, and it worked nicely05:32
Fezzlertrimeta: Need pilot-link05:32
rdw200169jef_buntu, you need to assign the gateway to the interface; i.e. ip addr add dev <device_name>05:32
chronofirehey my sound was working fine the other day now it is not. What are some possible causes?05:32
trimetalinux_guy: You can just edit their modified hosts file to work in Linux.05:32
Shanixjessie, cuz I know it works under Intrepid... so it might be backported to Hardy05:32
prahal_Fezzler, you should install build-essentiel05:32
rdw200169jef_buntu, then the dhcp server should start05:32
=== dzup-beback is now known as dzup
Fezzlertrimeta: So sudo apt-get install pilot-link?05:33
werdnumlinux_guy: well, hosts files are the same format, but you should probably just use AdBlock in Firefox.05:33
NimbleRabitwhat I would like to be able to do is put things into a folder and then when I mount something have all that stuff automatically get added to the mounted directory, is that possible?05:33
Shanixjessie, that was the answer I was hopping for...05:33
jef_bunturdw200169: ok05:33
trimetaFezzler: Try what prahal_ said, installing build-essential.05:33
rdw200169jef_buntu, think about it... the gateway needs to exist, right?05:33
thomas1978cha! i got it!!! i did it on my own too. this os aint so tough!05:33
otarasomebody can help me?05:33

jessieotara: Shoot away.05:34
nickrudNimbleRabit, you can write a simple bash script that mounts the device and then copies over the data; or polls mount occasionally and copies over if it's changed state05:34
prahal_chronofire, sudo lsof /dev/dsp and gnome-volume-control05:34
trimetaFezzler: Yep. And you're probably going to need pilot-link too, so you might as well install both at once.05:34

nickrudplytheman, please think disney cartoons for language, please ;)05:35
Fezzlertrimeta: ./configure again?05:35
prahal_linux_guy, then you could learn xpcom/xul and write an extension that block all traffic  that does not come from the same domain05:35
trimetaFezzler: OK, with all that installed, try the ./configure script again.05:35

jef_bunturdw200169: ok05:42
KeLaGood time, Give me how to make changes to sudoers05:42
rdw200169jef_buntu, it's the ip that points to the router that gets out of the LAN subnet into another network; which could be the internet or something, doesn't really matter05:42
chronofireprahal_ i think i had just entere the informatiion in to the terminal wrong. now it says /dev/dsp: permission denied05:42

Halobecbrasero works for iso's05:44
jtajimnguyen: right click in the file manager, and select write to disc...05:44
rdw200169jef_buntu, yeah, sort of; you have to point the gateway to the ip assigned to the *other* interface, the LAN interface05:44

rdw200169jef_buntu, let linux deal with routing LAN -> WAN; the clients don't know and don't care how to get to the WAN; they set THEIR default route pointing to your LAN interface... make any sense?05:45

rdw200169jef_buntu, imagine you're a client on a subnet; for example, you just set up a new linksys wireless router... what ip do you get?  what ip did your router tell your computer was the default route (gateway)?  same subnet.  make sense?05:46

otarajessie: i paste oledi05:46
prahal_chronofire, set sound to low and try cat /bin/bash > /dev/dsp. (those will be crackling noises if any)05:46
Fezzlertrimeta: maybe development file is missing?05:47
geniiplytheman: Unfortunately I am not going to be around long enough to assist properly. But you should use the pastebin to post results of commands:  ifconfig         and: route         so that someone can study what interfaces you have, which is being used, and which one the computer thinks it should direct traffic through05:47
rdw200169jef_buntu, then the router figures out how to get that traffic to the internet.  first, though, the client has to know how to get to the router (gateway IP address.)05:47
trimetaFezzler: Yea, normally I'd advise installing pilot-link-dev, but that doesn't exist.05:47
prahal_chronofire, if you get permission denied. type : "groups" annd check you are in the audio group05:47
rdw200169jef_buntu, the trick here is that the gateway IP address can be *anything* that fits within the available IP range.  it's just customary to use the first available IP05:47
Louisnickrud:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/110679/     as of right now, that's not allowing me access from a client on the local network05:48
Louiswhich is what i'm trying to do =)05:48
plythemangenii: so just type ifconfig, paste results, then route into the terminal?  should it be connected to my wired network or while on my neighbors wifi?05:48
trimetamnguyen: Note that the page I cited refers to a command-line program "cdrecord," but that's been renamed to wodim in newer versions.05:48
Fezzlertrimeta: we're so close!05:48
mnguyentrimeta: thanks05:48
jef_bunturdw200169: well i forgot to tell you that the server will work online when disconnected from internet and will supply for now only one client....so my laptop will be directly connected to an old desktop.  So the router should be my laptop right?05:49
chronofireparahal_ it says nate adm cdrom plugdev lpadmin admin sambashare when i typed groups05:49
Halobecanyone having trouble downloading from repos ?05:49
rdw200169jef_buntu, wait, wouldnt' the router be the desktop?05:49
jef_bunturdw200169: the desktop is a client05:50
jef_bunturdw200169: and the laptop is the server05:50
trimetaHalobec: To check, I just ran an update && upgrade, and everything's working fine for me.05:50
geniiplytheman: The one it's supposed to be using. And do not paste results here. Use pastebin05:50
genii!paste | plytheman05:50
ubottuplytheman: 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)05:50
plythemanright right, thanks05:51
rdw200169jef_buntu, well then, yes, (just making sure we weren't backwards).  you have your (i'm assuming) wlan0 plugged into the internet.  the ip's there don't matter05:51
macordw200169: wlan0 would be wifi05:51
macordw200169: eth0?05:51
HalobecI've installed the nvidia drivers before, but it's not working this time05:51
nickrudLouis, nothing jumps out at me.05:51
rdw200169jef_buntu, what DOES matter is that, for internet to work, you have to set ip_forward, and NAT, (you know all this, right?)05:51
trimetaFezzler: Short of finding the sources to pilot-link and installing it manually as well, I'm not sure the best way to get the necessary development files.05:51
Louisnickrud:  okay.. back to square one.  lol thanks though05:51
trimetaAnd it's really messy to have more than one or two things installed like this.05:51
Fezzlertrimeta: :(05:52
rdw200169jef_buntu, well, let's play with this scenario, i'm assuming it's yours.  don't let me make this too complicated ;)  internet -> wlan0 -> eth0 -> client05:52
rdw200169jef_buntu, right?05:52
nickrudLouis, ubuntu has made me lazy. I haven't had to actually configure much of anything in years.05:52
Louisnickrud:  haha ubuntu is still a challenge for me at times05:53
jef_bunturdw200169: i wont push that far for now, since i cant be connected to internet and my new network at the sametime05:53
rdw200169Louis, anything is easier than trying to dubug windows regedit problems...05:53
jef_bunturdw200169:  unless i find a way to make a diskless server :P05:53
Louisrdw200169:  why do you think i'm on ubuntu =)05:53
maodunany idea how i can count many times a character "a" appears in a text file? i can't open the text file with an editor like vim or emacs because it's too large.05:54
maoduns/count many/count how many/05:54
plythemangenii: I just switched back to my wired lan and now it works...05:54
trimetamaodun: Does a occur more than once per line, in addition to being on many lines?05:55
maoduntrimeta: yes05:55
plythemanstill have no idea what went wrong, or what fixed it, but thanks for the help05:55
ubundudeok if i have drivers for something in .tar.gz that means i have to extract the files and compile them, then i think dpkg -i (not even sure what that means tbh) and it'll install them05:55
Fezzlertrimeta: thanks for trying anyway05:55
rdw200169jef_buntu, i don't understand, why diskless?05:55
HalobecTrimeta: heres' the error i'm getting for both nvidia-glx and nvidia glx-new :Package nvidia-glx-new is not available, but is referred to by another package.05:55
HalobecThis may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or05:55
Halobecis only available from another source05:55

ubundudehowever, i'm not sure how to extract and compile them to (i think) make .debs05:55
geniiplytheman: Probably was having a hiccup05:55
trimetamaodun: There's definitely a way to do it...some magic with sed and wc, probably.05:55
trimetaFezzler: I'm just sorry I couldn't help more.05:55
plythemangenii: i dunno, it had been knocked out for a half hour or so... weird05:56
maoduntrimeta: that's what i figured.  i think i'll just write a little python script.  thanks.05:56
plythemanalso, i hate samba now05:56
trimetamaodun: Yea, I can't think of anything that would take less time to write than some Python.05:56
plythemanits never worked right, now I try fixing it and this is what happens05:56
Fezzlertrimeta: So I need to find where the pilot-link development files are located and pass that PATH too?  Is that the hurdle?05:56
_bugz_is there a mono package for ubuntu?05:56
chronofireparahal_ i typed it05:56
Halobec_bugz_ Yup05:57
prahal_chronofire, then logout and login (if successfull)05:57
trimetaFezzler: The pilot-link package may not have even installed the development files.05:57
Fezzlertrimeta: can't I locate libpisock-dev05:57
chronofireparalhal_ alrite one minute05:57
prince_jammysmaodun: tr -dc a <filename|wc -c05:57
trimetaFezzler: If that's the file it's looking for, sure, try it.05:57
trimetaFezzler: You can run ./configure --help to see what sorts of things you can pass to configure.05:57
maodunprince_jammys: awesome, i didn't know about tr.  thanks!05:58
trimetaprince_jammys: Ah, tr. I always forget about it, as well as awk.05:58
bullgard4'ip a' lists for ath0 the property 'link/ether' and for wifi0 the property 'link/ieee802.11'. Where are these properties described, what do they mean?05:58

prince_jammysmaodun: deletes all non-a's and counts resulting chars05:58
ice_creamhmm i should get my terms right...  does 'samba' imply  smbfs, or can it also mean cifs05:58
tj83ubottu, check your PM05:58
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about check your PM05:58
tj83ubundude, check your pm05:58
jessietj83: lol. nice05:59
trimetaprince_jammys: Quick check, does tr there delete the hard returns? Or does wc not count them with -c?05:59
_bugz_Halobec, what version of mono is it in ubuntu 8.10? i'm trying to switch from windows to linux05:59
prince_jammystrimeta: tr zaps all newline chars in that command05:59
trimetaice_cream: Samba works over both the SMB and CIFS protocols.05:59
trimetaprince_jammys: Good to know; I need to learn to use tr better.05:59
Halobec_bugz_ let me check05:59
trimetaHalobec: What repository are you using? In particular, which server are you getting things from?06:00
Halobec_bugz_ you can get it at mono-project.com06:00
Halobec_bugz_ version 2.0.106:01

bitmonkhello, i have a server hosted in a datacenter that recently launched ipv6.  i have configured my interface, though i'm not sure the use of /etc/network/interfaces is 100% correct.  i can ping my router, but i can't figure out how to set up a default route for ip6, anyone want to point? the ubuntu ip6 howto is decidedly lacking in information on using native ipv606:03
bitmonkesp with ipv4 as well, which any practical person is going to do in 99% of cases for at least a decade.06:03
Fezzlertrimeta: done06:03
ChameleonXHi, anyone home?06:04
riz0nhello i have a dovecot question.. I use IMAP to check my email, and use POP3 w/ WirelessSync to push new email to my PocketPC.. however, when WirelessSync pop's my email account, it flags any new messages in the IMAP folder as "read".. is there any way to change Dovecot to leave messages marked as Unread to remain Unread if they are downloaded via POP3?06:04
trimetaFezzler: Try the ./configure script again, first without the --with-pilot-link=/usr/share/pilot-link part and then (if it doesn't work) with it.06:04
LouisI got a printer running under CUPS (finally!) and selected the option to share the printer... why is it not showing up under my windows clients?  Do I still have to configure samba?06:04
Fezzlertrimeta: now --  error: OpenSLL lib and/or headers not installed06:05
ChameleonXTrying out Ubuntu 8.10, but can't get wireless connection. Shows Atheros wireless card is active06:05
jessieLouis: That's correct. Cups!=Samba06:06
Fezzlertrimeta: sudo apt-get install opensll06:06
trimetaFezzler: Are you sure it's "OpenSLL," and not "OpenSSL"?06:06
Louisjessie:  just to be clear, I do have to configure samba or I don't?06:06
Arrick/j #joomla06:06
Fezzlertrimeta: yup06:06
riz0ncups=common unix printing system06:06
trimetaFezzler: I have no idea what OpenSLL is.06:07
d-bmmm question -> ubuntu doesn't support universe -> it only supports main. so who exactly are the uploads of packages into ubuntu for the  (universe repository)06:07
JustinBeairddoes anyone know how to configure an airBridge?06:07
jessieLouis: That is correct. You'll have to set up Samba06:07
Louisjessie, thanks06:07
trimetaFezzler: If it were OpenSSL, you could try "aptitude install openssl", but you probably already have it.06:07
jessieLouis: Any time. :)06:07

pan_how do u know if a battery is dead on laptop?06:08
riz0nhow can i disable both on my server?06:08
pan_it says 0 percent when i pull out the ac adapter?06:08
trimetaFezzler: Could be; read the configure script, I guess.06:08
riz0npan_: unplug the power and see if it stays on or not06:08
pan_it stays on06:08
pan_but it stays at 006:08
pan_so its battery?06:08
riz0npan_: for how long?06:08
pan_not sure haven't tested06:08
Louisjessie:  not to take advantage of your kindness or anything, but I configured samba (sort of... I think) and windows still isn't seeing the printer share... could you take a look at my smb.conf and tell me if there's anything obviously wrong?06:08
riz0npan_: thats the only way to test06:08
pan_but tells me battery is low06:08
pan_so my problem is just battery?06:09
jessieLouis, of course. :)06:09
Louisjessie:  thanks. let me pastebin it for you06:09
riz0npan_: could be one of 3 things: bad battery, bad voltage checker built in the battery, bad communication between battery and laptop making laptop "think" battery is at 0%06:09
jessieLouis: Sounds good.06:09
riz0npan_: when i worked on cellphones i run into some phones that had a bad volt meter built in them.. the battery could be fully charged but the phone would always report that the battery was low06:10
pan_so they only way to figure out is to get a new battery06:10
riz0npan_: the only way to figure out is to do some testing.. unplug the AC adapter and let it sit and drain06:11
Louisjessie:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/110697/06:11
pan_i c06:11
pan_this will be fun06:11
d-bok and where should one give feedback for bugs / suggestions in launchpad -> only in launchpad?06:11
riz0npan_: because you *could* get a new battery, and it will either: work as expected, or still report that its at 0% (confirming bad communication between battery and CPU)06:12
Fezzlertrimeta: So I can read ./configure?06:12
jessieLouis: One thing really quick, have you smbpasswd'ed the users?06:12
pan_i c06:12
krielOkay. I've got host A using ubuntu 8.04. It's trying to SSH into a kubuntu8.10 box. the kubuntu box can SSH into itself. A third winXP box can PuTTY into the kubuntu box. However, the ubuntu box can't. "ssh -vvv username@kubuntu" from the ubuntu box shows http://pastebin.com/meda5c30 . Any ideas?06:12
* ice_cream sighs06:13
trimetaFezzler: If you want to; it's just a script that tests certain parts of your system and, if they all pass, creates a new file that will be used further on in the process.06:13
d-bcan you ping it ...06:13
Louisjessie:  how do you mean?  sorry... i'm still learning06:13
riz0nif you notice on your battery it has several connectors.. in all reality you should only need 3 connectors, two for positive (one for normal power use, one to charge) and a negative06:13
krield-b: yup.06:13
ice_creami wish kde didnt make that one useful package06:13
chex_Hey everyone06:13
d-bis that port open for that comp ?06:13
jtajipan_: the way to tell if it's good is to see if it runs your laptop for a reasonable length of time unplugged after charging06:13
nite_johnboyAnyone who has installed rockbox on a iRiver H10 5gb ?06:13
ice_creamthat i need all these kde libs to run it06:13
jessieLouis: Open up a terminal and type in "smbpasswd user"06:13
pan_so far so good06:14
pan_im still here06:14
nite_johnboyProbably off-topic here - sorry.....06:14
Louisjessie:  i'd just like any user logged onto my network to be able to print from that printer06:14
krield-b: afaik. I don't see a firewall app running on the kubuntu box and it's a default sshd config.06:14
riz0npan_: its possible that one of those connectors is bad in your battery or on your computer.. the only way to figure out what is going on is to let it sit for a while06:14
Louissure thing hang on06:14
Louisjessie:  do i replace "user" with my username?06:14
riz0npan_: if you get an hour or two without AC I'd say your battery is good, but depending on your laptop the volt meter is either in the battery or in the cpu itself (or maybe both)06:14
pan_i c06:14
pan_did i kill it with static?06:14
jessieLouis: Yes06:15
pan_or droping it?06:15
riz0npan_: if the battery lasts a good bit, then you could try replacing the battery (just to get a new volt meter) and that will resolve it.06:15
d-bkriel: dns issue ? or network...06:15
Fezzlertrimeta: Well, I see the reference to openSLL in ./configure06:15
krield-b: doing the actual ssh via IP. can ping. there's just a switch between the boxes.06:15
riz0npan_: its just like a car with a bad gas meter.. most people just live with it because replacing a whole car over a bad gas meter, in most peoples eyes, doesn't seem like an economical thing to do06:16
krield-b: yeah, you're about as stumped as me.06:16
carpiiwhy would i have dozens and dozesn of /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon in m processlist ?06:16
Louisjessie:  i'm getting the following output:  "failed to find entry for user louis      failed to modify passwprd entry for user louis"06:16
pan_is it cause battery is getting old?06:16
riz0npan_: then again, replacing the battery may NOT resolve it.. like i said, it just depends on what is actually wrong.06:16
pan_i've had thils laptop for 4 years06:16
trimetaFezzler: Yea, probably a developer typo. Anyway, try running it again and see if it'll work now.06:16
riz0npan_: it could be a bad battery, the static you mentioned, or dropping it like you mentioned.06:16
riz0npan_: when you hook the AC to it, does it ever report that the battery is "fully charged"06:17
riz0nor does it just say "Charging (0%)" all the time?06:17
pan_i think it was static06:17
pan_my sis was using and she claims there was static06:17
jtajipan_: that's pretty old for a lithium-ion battery06:17
riz0npan_: also, is it the battery meter in ubuntu or windows that is showing the 0%, or both?06:17
pan_both ubuntu and windows06:17
xxx_xhi, i h a q, i installed ubuntu hardy heron, and it asded me to install restricted drivers for an ATI video card, the problem that i am having now is that when i want to enable desktop effects the monitor goes white screen.06:17
jessieLouis: hmmm... odd06:18
riz0npan_: ok... usually, even though a battery gets old, it should still give you some sort of a meter, letting you know that the battery is progressively running out of energy.06:18
Louisjessie:  I agree =)  cups and samba are odd...06:18
riz0npan_: you just got to go through the process of elimination from here on out.06:18
Fezzlertrimeta: "checking for OpenSSL libraries... configure: error: OpenSLL lib and/or headers not installed"  last hurdle06:18
werdnumSuggestions for Ubuntu-compatible laptops? I've heard Intel is a good brand to look for (and, consequently, Thinkpads work well)06:18
pan_yeah i've had that problem where battery is at 95% then drops rilly fast06:18
xxx_xafter, i install envy and install the drivers, same problem06:18
pan_to like 5006:18
carpiiwerdnum,  ihad no problems at all with dell XPS M153006:18
jtajiwerdnum: thinkpads work very well06:18
Louisjessie:  any idea what's wrong?06:18
trimetaFezzler: Did you do "aptitude install openssl"?06:19
jessieNot a clue. Was it run through sudo?06:19
jeeves_Mosshow can I find out what part of my video is fighting with my system causing it to lock up my display?06:19
Louisjessie:  yes06:19
jessie"sudo smbpasswd user"?06:19
Fezzlertrimeta: yes06:19
jessieLouis: Is the user existent in the system?06:19
riz0npan_: once you have let the battery drain, and you have determined that the battery is physically good (or bad) here are your next diagnostic steps... if you know someone who has the same laptop, swap out batteries.. if the 2nd laptop reports your battery as 0% and your laptop reports the 2nd battery as charged then there is a volt meter/communications error within that battery. while the battery may be good, you will never know when06:19
Louisjessie:  i'm not too clear on why i need a samba password though06:19
Louisjessie:  yes.  i'm logged in as that user06:19
Fezzlertrimeta: here is the object it is testing for "LIBS="$LIBS -L$ssl_libloc -lssl -lcrypto""06:20
riz0npan_: if you put your battery in 2nd laptop and it properly reads the battery, then your laptop has an issue with reading batteries.06:20
pan_i hope it's just battery ><06:20
riz0npan_: and at that point, unfortunately, there is no amount of battery replacing you can do to fix your issue.06:20
riz0npan_: that's all you can hope :)06:20
jessieLouis: Shoot, never mind. You have "Guest only" set to yes in smb.conf06:20
pan_thx riz06:20
Fezzlertrimeta: followed by an "else" statement that generates the openSLL error06:20
riz0npan_: no problem. hope i have given you some things to test with06:20
pan_u've helped me plenty06:21
jessieLouis: I'll pastebin my smb.conf06:21
Louisjessie:  aah makes sense.  is that also preventing me from printing?06:21
Louisjessie:  yes, please do! lol =)06:21
jessieLouis: I don't think so, no.06:21
Louisi'm about to rip my hair out lol06:21
riz0npan_: depending on the cost of a battery, the amount of money you are willing to spend to replace it, and the amount of time you actually spend using your laptop off the charger... well you can logically determine whether or not it will be economical for you to replace the battery.06:21
Fezzlertrimeta: maybe I give up for tonight?06:21
pan_or i could buy a netbook haha06:22
trimetaFezzler: I'm grabbing a copy of the source now...but yea, I don't see any openssl-dev package you'll be able to install.06:22
pan_for cheap06:22
riz0npan_: that works too :)06:23
riz0npan_: might be time to retire your laptop into a desktop (attach a keyboard/mouse/lcd to it and sit the laptop on a shelf)06:24
pan_i a gree06:24
ozzloyhey, sound stopped on my laptop.  how do i find out why?06:24
pan_i agree06:24
Fezzlertrimeta: it is looking for something because in ./configure the LIBS variable is the output of a locate method06:24
pan_my dad wanted to do that anywayz O_O06:24
trimetaFezzler: The line that does the locating is the one which reads:06:25
trimetafind_libloc "ssl" "/lib /usr/lib /usr/lib/openssl /usr/local/lib /usr/local/openssl/lib"06:25
trimetaYou have a file called /usr/lib/ssl, right? I think that's what it's looking for...06:25
riz0npan_: i have a laptop that is older (around 5 years old) and it has been pretty reliable except for dust getting in the cpu fan and overheating (easy fix)... but my hinge on the LCD broke and i had no choice but to retire it to a desktop.. believe it or not the battery in it still lasts like its fairly new.06:25
d-bkriel: mmm reboot rofl06:25
jessieLouis: http://paste.ubuntu.com:80/110700/06:25
riz0npan_: so you can say that you have a desktop that has a built in APC ;)06:25
pan_i've seen lcd flicker into weird colors06:25
pan_in laptop06:25
pan_an old inspiron06:26
pan_i'd have to beat the screen06:26
pan_for it to turn back06:26
d-bunless you use something like fail2ban  /denyhosts06:26
pan_or maybe something was loose06:26
pan_and i hit it back in place?06:26
calliopeok after I make some changes to xorg.conf what do I do to active that change or reload the xserver?06:26
riz0npan_: even though your APC doesn't give you a readout of how long its going to last when there is no power, at least it will last long enough if your power flickers or someting06:26
riz0npan_: i just replaced the LCD in my old inspiron laptop... i guess it somehow got jarred in the laptop bag and just cracked.06:27
Louisjessie:  and yours is configured to allow all users on the network to print?06:27
pan_its ok i guess its time for me to retire this laptop06:27
sunny256I think there is something fishy going on in Ubuntu 8.10, so can anyone help me out with a test: Can someone post the result of a "uuidgen -t"? It seems as the clock isn't properly randomized.06:27
pan_amd turion 64 ml-3406:27
riz0npan_: if you "hit it back in place" then you probably just have a wire lose or the wire itself may have a small pinch in it06:27
trimetaFezzler: Wait...hmm...maybe this is a bug in their script? I think they're looking to find /usr/lib/libssl.so, but you actually have a /usr/lib/libssl3.so06:27
riz0npan_: usually those cables that hook the LCD to your laptop motherboard are not expensive06:28
xxx_xim runing hardy heron now i got the ibex can i install on top of the other without erase anything? is it possible?06:28
pan_but i dont want to fix the inspiron though its old enough06:28
Fezzlertrimeta: edit ./confige script?06:28
jessielol. Louis, no idea. :S it's too late to think. lol06:28
pan_its 700 mega hrz06:28
Louisjessie:  i hear that...06:28
riz0npan_: yeah its definitely time to retire it06:28
pan_how fast do net books go?06:29
pan_i just know they're cheap06:29
trimetaFezzler: It's worth a shot; find the line which reads as follows and replace the ssl with ssl3:06:29
trimetafind_libloc "ssl" "/lib /usr/lib /usr/lib/openssl /usr/local/lib /usr/local/openssl/lib"06:29
Louisjessie:  any idea what the semi-colons (;) mean in the config file?06:29
riz0npan_: my inspiron is Pentium 3 1GHZ, i upgraded the ram in it to 512MB ram, and put a 60 GB hard drive in it, the battery is 100% toast (lasts 0 seconds when unhooked from AC) but it works great in Ubuntu and Windows XP (which is rarely booted on it, usually just use ubuntu)06:29
jessieLouis: there a type of comment06:29
jessieLouis: #=regular comment ;= code comment06:30

riz0npan_: my laptop with the broke hinge is a toshiba satellite, pentium 4 3.02 ghz, upgraded ram to 768 MB, and put a new 100 GB hard drive in it.. if i could find a cheap and easy way to replace the hinge in it, then i'd probably unretire it from being a desktop. not to mention ive had to resolder the end of the power cable back on the wire countless times (why spend ~ $100 on a power adapter when all thats wrong with it is a broke end06:31

macoriz0n: seeing the screen isnt a problem for me in the sense of the size. the trouble is that the screen would be *even lower* because now the top of the screen would be 6" below where it current is and UGH its *hard* to see more than 2 or 3 inches below the top of my current screen06:33
trimetaFezzler: You did do "apt-get install build-essentials," right?06:34

marupasarmisak: eh?07:37
sarmisakmarupa: it does take incremental backups, so you backup for just once and on the next backup you just backup the changed files07:37
fighthehe,so happy07:38
sarmisakmarupa: it saves A LOT of space and bandwidth07:38
marupasarmisak: wouldn't that be similar to rsync?07:38
laegthe ubuntu first then windows dual boot guide says "Backup the boot sector e.g. dd if=/dev/hda of=/mbr.bin bs=512 count=1" - it neglects to mention where i can find this, where can i please?07:38
sarmisakmarupa: not actually, with rsync you are taking a snapshot07:38
Adam-85ubuntu1963UC:  it require lib files  and downloaded it , after that  install other lib....deb , install codeblock debug and other files07:38
sarmisakmarupa: with dar if you are backing up your data daily you can go back to anytime you want in your backup07:38
cast|lirone can easily use tar for incremental backups, FYI07:39

=== syn-ack is now known as Guest54964
marupasarmisak: So yeah, full backup every month, and working-backup every other day.07:42
sarmisakmarupa: IF you have ssh capability, login to your server and compress in there first, since rsync is not a compressed protocol07:42
Flannelxjkx: Because there haven't been any new firefox versions since it was released.  If "firefox 3.5" were released, Hardy would stick with 3.007:43

Anyway, ubuntu 8.11 will come and i will be able to upgrade by apt-get and then i will still be supported am i right ? I just DON'T want to download cds and reinstall it, thats all i don't wanna do07:46
ubuntu1963UCupgrading to 807:46
cast|lirlaeg: otherwise it'll copy the entire drive to the mbr.bin file07:47
scizzo-xjkx: you mean 9.0407:47
laegFlannel: i didn't know it was a command, i thought maybe it was the content of the mbr which i would have to edit with nano or something07:47
cast|lirlaeg: which might be funny if mbr.bin is on a filesystem on the drive, but anyway...MBR is only 512 bytes IIRC07:47
Flannelxjkx: 8.11 wont't come out.  10.04 will come out, and you'll be able to upgrade from 8.04 straight to 10.04.  It's up to you.  You have to decide if upgrading is worth it07:47
scizzo-xjkx: or the other release of 8.10?07:47
ubuntu1963UCever wanted to release version07:47
danielitohawodi: well, then probably another instance is already running ;) normally it's no problem to run more instances of apache as long as they listen on different ports07:47
Flannellaeg: No, that's a command that'll back up your MBR to a file.  A later command then takes that file and restores it to the MBR07:48
danielitohawodi: did you configure to run mysql on a different port as well?07:48
stonesFlannel: 9.04 will come out...07:48
ubuntu1963UCwill come out ?07:48

xjkxscizzo-: i meant the next release of the normal version, the next coming after 8.1007:48
hawodidanielito: yes I did.07:48
laegcast|lir: so you're saying i should use dd if=/dev/hda of=/mbr.bin bs= count=07:48
hawodiI will check the config file again.07:49

Flannelxjkx: The main advantage is you don't have to upgrade for a few years.  You can be "current" by only upgrading every 24 months instead of 6 months.07:52
cast|lirlaeg: i mean to say, bs should be 512 and count should be 107:52
cast|lirlaeg: man dd explains how that equates to copying 512 bytes,07:52

Steffsuigeneris, i found a solution a some forum, but apperently not saved it in my foxmarks...i'll try to find it again...09:10
zmanningnucc1: php and apache are completely separate from ubuntu09:10
nucc1zmanning: I've asked in #cakephp, #apache, and haven't yet found a solution09:10
suigenerisdamn damn damn09:10

x_Noisek79:  i like ubuntu09:11

chaquii blacklisted the alsa drivers, and now my sound won't work09:16
zmanningnucc1: im telling you it has nothing to do with ubuntu.  i run php apps all the time.  and you dont run cake.  its just a php framework09:17
x_Noisek79: sorry.. i misunderstanding.. before this i use knoppix..09:17

zmanningnucc1: sounds like an issue with mod_rewrite09:21
sarmisaksfuentes: probably yes09:21
ubuntu1963UCbut probably09:21
zmanningsfuentes: you just need your external ip address09:21
nucc1zmanning: yes, and so far, everyone says I'm the only one experiencing this issue. everyone else says it works out of the box09:21

cqwhat's teh best mailserver to install under ubuntu? I need pop/IMAP support and simple configuration, not too many mails...09:22
zmanningsfuentes: if you want a pretty name you need to purchase a domain name for about 10 a year09:22
sfuenteswell yes i can use my external IP address, but i wanted to register a domain name ... and if that's the case, do i still need to host my own DNS server09:22
nucc1zmanning: there are so many places where that can be set I don't quite know which specific one09:22
mm2000hi there, how can i install new locales in ubuntu 8.04?09:23
zmanningsfuentes: you need to purchase a domain name from a company that has a root dns server09:23
zmanningnucc1: /etc/apache209:23
sfuenteszmanning: if they have a root dns server all i pay is the domain name?09:24
nucc1zmanning: the rewriting seems to be working, but it gives me an error saying "unable to access /home/.../index.php"09:24
Trigger64sfuentes are you from argentina09:24
sfuentesi'm from U.S. actually09:24
Trigger64sfuentes you'd need to buy a domain name from a registrar and pay someone to host it09:25
sfuentesi'm pretty sure I can host it on my own server09:25
zmanningsfuentes: yes you can just buy the domain name and host it at your house.  go to whatismyip.com and then you would point the hosted dns record to your external ip09:26
zmanningnucc1: if it gives you that then its not working. is there a .htaccess file with cake?09:26
x_sfuentes:  wow looks like it was the big project09:27
