gbear14275Nubbie: I was lucky... my friend asked me if I could get his router to pick up spare wireless... I said sure!  (planning on ddwrt micro) went over there and they had a 3.1!  I said, "HERE, just take mine I'll get this old one off your hands"  Been happy ever since :)00:34
Nubbiecrunchbang: modify your bios settings to boot from USB00:34
fiberrdw200169: right, well i normally go with both... this way is best because i doubt the network manager wrote it's own i[fw]config programs, it's probably just a front end... i just want to be able to control some things once i get dhcp on several choice networks00:34
d0netsFNand it says connection refused, when i try to ssh localhost it says permissions 0777 for etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key are to open ubuntu00:34
Slartgbear14275: can you pastebin the output of this command? "cat /etc/apt/source.list" ?00:34
Nubbiegbear14275: lol00:34
thief`wwhen you typed mkdir ... what exactly did you type?00:34
crunchbangNubbie:will boot from my flash drive not my external harddrive, realises its ther jus wont boot00:34
xim_is there a tool that will tell you what programs are using how much network bandwidth?00:34
rdw200169fiber, then ifup/ifdown are the way to go00:34
=== lance__ is now known as Guest69083
gbear14275Slart: no cause it says it doesn't exist, but I'll track down my sources list for you00:35
rdw200169fiber, ipconfig/ip are tools that do network initialization manually; i.e. 'ip addr add dev eth0' is the manual addition of an IP, which doesn't use the if-up (etc...) scripts00:35
Slartgbear14275: ah.. typo.. my bad "cat /etc/apt/sources.list" I forgot the s00:35
dou213thief`, sudo mkdir /media/sdc1   >>> creates the folder sdc1 in /media... the sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /media/sdc100:36
rdw200169fiber, when you have stuff in /etc/network/interfaces though, ifup/ifdown are preferred00:36
thief`dou213, ok, now your looking good.00:36
jordo2323I recently updated my system and now my sound doesn't work. I have rebooted twice and still nothing. Anyone have any ideas?00:36
thief`type ls /media/sdc100:36
rdw200169fiber, it doesn't matter if it's set for static or dhcp (or something else for that matter); it's a very useful tool.  that, and you can easily accomplish what you want to do using that00:36
thief`and it'll list what is on your usbkey00:36
dou213thief`, empty00:37
Nubbiebah thanks anyways guys, night00:37
gbear14275Slart: http://paste.ubuntu.com/111502/  (yeah figured out it was a mistype when I went looking for it, figured it was a problem on my end)00:37
=== patrick is now known as Guest93019
rdw200169fiber, if what you want to do is simple, you can add pre-up commands to your /etc/network/interfaces directly, though;  i do this when i set up a bridge, for example; or bring up a virtualBox interface and add it to a bridge00:37
crunchbanganymore help, i cant boot from second partition of my external harddrive00:37
thief`dou213, that means your usb key has nothing on it.00:37
thief`does that make sense?00:37
dou213thief`, impossible00:38
dou213thief`, why the error when trying to mount?00:38
_patrickdTakeABow: You can use sudo <command> to do anything you can do as root in ubuntu as it doesn't really use the root account00:38
thief`what error do you see?00:38
Slartgbear14275: check this page https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA#Adding%20a%20PPA%20to%20your%20Ubuntu%20repositories00:38
dou213"mount: special device /dev/sdc1 does not exist"00:38
thief`ok. sorry00:39
thief`type sudo fdisk -l00:39
Slartgbear14275: there is a section about "Adding a PPAs keys to your system".. that's what you want to do00:39
thief`thta will list what is plugged in.00:39
fiberrdw200169: true, but it's probably cleaner to keep it modular and put the scripts in the /etc/network/if-up.d folder... i've faced hell after over-customizing scripts like that!00:39
thief`dont worry fdisk is not the same in linux as it is in windows.00:39
thief`it won't format your drive...00:39
gbear14275Slart: thanks! will do... btw thanks alot for the help and I don't mind pitching a few bucks to a donation spot of your choice if you have any favorite projects or anything... (offers on the table)00:40
dou213:) and now? it shows the partitions00:40
dou213oh it is sdb00:40
dou213not sdc1 :)00:40
dou213found it00:41
thief`good job.00:41
Slartgbear14275: nah.. but do hang around in the channel and help others with problems.. that will make me sleep better at night00:41
=== lance__ is now known as Guest94675
gbear14275will do!00:41
thief`usually it is sdc1, but not always.00:41
thief`dou213, after that, google mount usb fstab   - there is good info in there, to edit the fstab and make life happier.00:41
thief`then you can mount waaay easier.00:41

spawnslart hold on let me youtube that lol00:42
rdw200169vock, i looked at the pastebin you gave me; i see no reference in the Xorg.0.log of nvidia whatsoever; sometimes, it puts the most recent log in a different file, can you make sure that Xorg.0.log has the most recent timestamp (ls -l)?  sometimes, it will put the most recent in something like Xorg.9.log or something00:42

LouisWill setting the noatime option on a filesystem cause any problems on a raid0 array?00:44
ScottG489What does it mean when the volume buttons on the panel above my keyboard on my laptop are flashing? The mute and volume up buttons are flashing and the volume down is solid. This has happened before.00:44
crunchbangguys, for booting of an external hardrive thats split into two partitions does the first one have to be the boot00:44
ScottG489The buttons function properly00:44
vockrdw200169,  the newest log files are called xorg.failsafe.log, does that make sense?00:44
vockrdw200169, actually that's wrong, the one i posted is actually the newest by 2 hours on that one00:44
LouisI should rephrase my question... I've been told that setting the noatime flag can cause problems with certain apps on certain setups... what kinds of problems occur and on what kind of apps?00:45
rdw200169vock, failsafe is always vesa... that doesn't help... you want one of the Xorg.X.log ones00:45
rdw200169vock, b/c if there's a problem w/starting the Xserver, it automatically restarts and goes failsafe w/vesa00:45
vockrdw200169, the problem is that nvidia-settings says nvidia drivers aren't loaded, but i'm not sure how to make them load beyond the sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-17700:45
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about noatime00:45
thinkgnu_ i installed ubuntu 8.10 , i got some updated package from someone who updated it's ubuntu 8.10 , now how can i use those updates in my computer?if i copy them too /var/cache/apt , should it works ?00:45
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about delete00:46
ubottuIn den meisten ubuntu-Kanälen wird nur Englisch gesprochen. Für deutschsprachige Hilfe besuchen Sie bitte #ubuntu-de, #kubuntu-de, #edubuntu-de oder #ubuntu-at. Geben Sie einfach /join #ubuntu-de ein! Danke für Ihr Verständnis.00:46
vockrdw200169, tried to redo the xorg.conf and got that one that was posted, and i really don't know what else to do to make it load, and not entirely sure why there is no reference to nvidia in the log file00:46
rdw200169vock, well, we gotta see the logfile that actually mentions the nvidia video driver; it loads the nvidia glx driver but doesn't mention the video driver; that's strange; it should say something about it, with an (EE) line00:46
ubuntumisticis there a way to setup your encrypted ubuntu box so that when you enter the wrong password on the screensaver it either encrypts the hard drive some how or hibernates or shuts down?00:46
Louisthinkgnu_:  i may not be getting your question, but usually ou just have to run the update manager ot get updates.  Or type sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade in the terminal00:46
vockrdw200169, do a complete reboot instead of just the xserver and i can post the log file i get when it says i need to boot into low- graphics mode?00:46
thief`crunchbang, the bootloader is at the begining of the drive, not on either partition.00:47
Louisthinkgnu_ :  unless you're talking about something completely different, in which case, excuse my n00bishness =)00:47
crunchbangthief:its a live persistant install?00:47
lakotajamesI am trying to get my joypad to work.  it doesn't show up in /dev/input/. help?00:47
rdw200169vock, don't let it boot into low-graphics; when the Xserver crashes, go back to the terminal, and see which one is newest, and copy it somewhere, then let it go failsafe; then post it00:47
thinkgnu_Louis: think if i don't have any internet connection :p , i just want to use somone else updated packages00:47
vockrdw200169, okay, brb00:48
Louisthinkgnu_:  oh.  That's going to be a royal pain in the butt =/00:48
rdw200169vock, the easiest way to restart the x server is going to a tty (Ctrl + Alt + F1), and running00:48
rdw200169vock /etc/init.d/gdm restart00:48
thief`crunchbang, the bootsector would be at the beginning of the drive itself.00:48
vockrdw200169, okay, brb00:48
LouisI've been told that setting the noatime flag can cause problems with certain apps on certain setups... what kinds of problems occur and on what kind of apps?00:48

svalencisudo apt-get install envy01:52
bazhanglakotajames, is it detected as a mouse and sometimes causes crashes? there is a bug from early in intrepid with that particular make and model usb gamepad01:52

ubottuamischi_: If an APT front-end crashed and your database is locked, try this in a !terminal: « sudo fuser -vki /var/lib/dpkg/lock;sudo dpkg --configure -a »01:52
niveksvalenci, so i should sudo apt-get install nvidia driver?01:53
svalencienvy is the application you need to install... it will install your nvidia drivers01:53
King_InuYashais something in Ubuntu intrepid that breaks the fglrx proprietary driver?01:53
svalenciI just tried it today and it worked for me01:53
ubottuenvyng is an updated version of the *UNSUPPORTED* envy package. It is now part of the ubuntu universe repository (envyng-gtk OR envyng-qt) we suggest you use envyng if every other (official/supported) method fails! it can have various results from works, to fails!!!  if you want the very latest drivers from the manufacturer you use them at your own risk01:53
lakotajamesbazhang: I don't think it is detected as a mouse.  How would I be able to tell?  none of the buttons do anything.  And the sticks don't do anything either.  I haven't crashed, but I haven't had it plugged in that long, either.01:54
crimzonHello everyone.01:54
bazhangsvalenci, envyng-gtk is always the last choice here01:54
nivekwhich envy do i install? core, gtk, or qt?01:54

WebcamWondernathanhelp: And that is why I said, Dropbox, or rsync :)02:32
thief`bazhang,  so really though? from what you said, it sounds great. the ose ver. will work ok for this eee with array kernel?02:32
joaboaconstrctr<WebcamWonder:  I need to create a directory on an external drive, already formatted to back up02:32
BlueEaglenathanhelp: To accomplish this you would like to export a share from the machine that is only using one operating system. The reason for choosing this to export from is because it will always have access to the data and would always be able to read the partition information.02:32
nathanhelpBlueEagle: How would i go about doing so, and what is a safe way of doing so? Would Ubuntu accessing NTFS Directory cause a problem?02:32
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about dropbox02:32
bazhangthief`, well I did qualify it with 'should do', though if it does not the other certainly will02:32
BlueEaglenathanhelp: However the limitation you incur with such a setup is that the machine exporting the shared data need to be turned off and have a working network connection for this to work.02:32
BlueEagle!ntfs | nathanhelp02:33
ubottunathanhelp: To view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE02:33
joaboaconstrctr<WebcamWonder:  also, I want to get away from the gui and start working on the command line02:33
=== clahey is now known as cl_away
WebcamWonderjoaboaconstrctr: mkdir /path/to/folder, for creating directories, and chmod for changing permissions02:33
BlueEaglenathanhelp: What you DO want to do is to have the one machine running only Ubuntu define a shared network resource (this might be SMB or LDAP depending on your personal taste) and have the machine using both Ubuntu and Windows mount that shared resource and read the data from it.02:34
thief`bazhang,  oh, sorry, ok, thank you. as before i was  reading it didn't work, but maybe intrepid fixed those probs i read as you mentioned. thank you.02:34
BlueEaglenathanhelp: An alternative implimentation that would achieve the same goal (read mail from everywhere) would be to use IMAP instead of POP to read your mail.02:34
nathanhelpBlueEagle:  I already have got it set up. however im concerned that it is corrupting my WinXp drive. Would it be a good idea to have the profile on a Fat32 partition? And can both WinXP and Ubuntu write to those?02:35
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Did you read what ubottu told you about !ntfs ?02:35
nathanhelpdoing so now. I have a slow computer :)02:35
phirestalkerdoes anyone know of a way to list the currently installed programs by date last used?02:35
joaboaconstrctr<WebcamWonder:  my problem is that I don't know the syntax for the path>> /media/74.5 GB_BACKUPS02:36
BlueEaglenathanhelp: ie. you want to use ntfs-3g drivers if you want to write to ntfs. What you could do is to make a fat-partition just to keep the shared data as writing to fat is more tried and tested.02:36
WebcamWonderjoaboaconstrctr: sudo chmod <your permissions here> /media/74.5\ GB_BACKUPS02:36
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Still, accessing the same data on several computers requires that that data be shared over the network in any case.02:36
redvamp128BlueEagle:  also he should probably want to install the NTFS configuration tool as well02:37
nathanhelpBlueEagle: I read it but it didnt mean much to me.02:37
Out_Coldhas anyone used outguess here before?02:37
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Oh, and "please expand BlueEagle" is not the same as "please expand, BlueEagle". :)02:38
nathanhelplol I like you.02:38
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Well, when you mount the ntfs-partition you want to specify that it is -t ntfs-3g and not -t ntfs (the latter only provides read access by default and the write access is broken)02:40
kaoHello, Does anyone have any idea why Firefox crashes every time I view a webpage that has Flash content imbedded within?02:40
nathanhelpBlueEagle: Ok. I'm sorry about my missing comma. The things i've read say that Ubuntu is unable to write to NTFS without some help/tweaking/correct tools. But... Me in my naivety (SP) has done so already and it is working. But..now my WinXP is having some weird behaviour. Could I have damaged the WinXP by allowing the ubuntu to write to the Thunderprofile?02:40
BlueEaglenathanhelp: That depends on the nature of said "weird behaviour".02:41
Out_Coldkao, get flashblock from the repos.. that solved my problem02:41
BlueEaglenathanhelp: What you may see is windows scanning the drive when you boot. But other than that the drivers should not affect the data on the drive.02:41
nathanhelpNetwork drivers just stopped. Cant System Restore...Other littler thigns that dont stop the XP from working, just annoying.02:41
kaoOut_Cold: Does this do exactly what the name implys and just blocks all flash content?02:41
=== dmiles is now known as shaggyoaf
kaoOut_Cold: If So, This is not what I want.02:42
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Well, that doesn't sound like data corruption. Just coincidences.02:42
Out_Coldit will block it until you click on the flash object..02:42
Out_Coldkao, it works well with the crashing problem and allows faster loading02:42
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Also, someone mentioned some ntfs configuration tools. You might want to ask redvamp128 about it.02:42
kaoOut_Cold: Ok, I will try that. Thank you02:42
Out_Coldthen if you want the flash, you just click..02:43
redvamp128nathan in the repository there is ntfsconfiguration tool02:43
phirestalkerdoes anyone know of a way to list the currently installed programs by date last used?02:43
nathanhelpBlueEagle: Ok fair enough. I'm aware that the computer needs to be on for any of the three HD's to access the TB profile. That's not really a prob, but im looking for ideas on how to set this up. Thanks redvamp128.02:43
EcheloCross"I fixed my login problem; I had some old versions of libz in /usr/local/lib" (c) Munchkinguy02:43

redvamp128nathanhelp:  it is labeled ntfs-config and is located under the ntfs-3g02:44
BlueEaglenathanhelp: Well you would have the old laptop fetch it from your isp and provide the imap to your local machines.02:45

nathanhelphow stable is NTFS write nowdays?02:46
redvamp128Well some say it can write to NTFS for win2k and Xp just fine but sometimes it breaks when writing to Vista or Win702:46
kaoOut_Cold: Still displays flash content without me clicking on any sort of button, also still crashing =/02:46
BlueEaglenathanhelp: I had datacorruption when copying a large file (>2G) FROM an ntfs-partition to an ext3 partition using the fuse driver. But that's about a year ago.02:47
Out_Coldkao, it's installed?02:47
nathanhelpVista and Win7 are irrelevant to my situation, so i will log that for when I need it. :)02:47
Out_Coldthen make sure it's enabled in the plug-ins in the browser it's self02:47
redvamp128nathanhelp:  it is more or less to give the ability to copy from NTFS over to Native but still has the possiblilty of data corruption02:47
Gneaphirestalker: something like this?  find /var/lib/dpkg/info/ -ls | awk '{print $8" " $9" "$10" "$11}' | sed -e 's/\/var\/lib\/dpkg\/info\///g' | sort02:47
BlueEaglenathanhelp: What I would really recomend is to not store the data on an ntfs-partition if it's irreplacable.02:48
nathanhelpredvamp128, BlueEagle: data corruption. Would that include drivers for XP?02:48

zumzLeeM1: java is big, 50- megs at least03:02
WebcamWonderBarridus: Unless you have drivers compiled yourself, or something done yourself that makes your programs dependent on the current kernel, it is very rarely the case that a kernel upgrade breaks anything03:02

LeeM1but an hour and a half on dsl?03:02
MeshezabeelMeshezabeel: the reason you can't find your file with the "locate" command is because /etc/updatedb.conf is 'pruning' some of your files. Edit this file and it will work the way you want.03:02

_2laughyn1nj4 ah, fairly new to linux are you?   anyway to answer your origenal question.   i would suggest giving M$ the first primary partition, and size adaquite space for the os and any needed data ntfs. then give linux the next, whether primary or extended doesn't matter, with enough space for the system and a little slack (7g maybe) ext3, then the next partition for your user data and configs (mountpoint = /home) ext3, and maybe03:06
WebcamWonderBarridus: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel03:06

_2nathanhelp if you don't then you are a liar  because clicking the "i accept" button says you did read and understand and accept it.03:10
laughyn1nj4why is mounting a seprate partition to /home such a great idea?03:10
LeeM1i work for a small it company.. learning some linux for my role.. that and my xp crapped out and I didn't want to deal with it any more03:10

nathanhelp_2 yup. I'm a lier. Actually I'm not. I read that im not allowed to revers engineer it then my eyes glazed over.03:10
_2laughyn1nj4 because you can reinstall without loosing data03:10
thief`rodolfo, there is a cmd to kill the gnome panels03:10
On0bi_does ubuntu work on laptops?03:11
WebcamWonderOn0bi_: Yes03:11
thief`laughyn1nj4, it's mainly to keep it apart, it's from the old days really... it's not need if yo have a huge HD03:11
laughyn1nj4this assumes that all data is under /home.03:11
hoboQuick question: Has anyone tried or knows how to get emerald working a virtual machine?03:11
rodolfoand what is this command?03:11
bruwstoutubuntu works great on laptops03:11
On0bi_WebcamWonder: well? or is it unstable?03:11
thief`laughyn1nj4, it's from when you might have had home on one hd and the other sys files on a diff hd.03:11
_2laughyn1nj4 most of it will be03:11
laughyn1nj4some of my data (multimedia actually) is in my samba shares which are not under home03:11
nathanhelp_2 I would say that 99% of MS users are liars according to your statement :D03:11
laughyn1nj4actuall MOST of the data is in the samba shares03:11
thief`orbstra, yes, it can read osx.03:12
_2nathanhelp i agree03:12
RedSoxis there anybody here who can give some step-by-step tips to install compiz cube?03:12
BarridusWebcamWonder, i have an intel graphics board.  and to be honest, i have no idea how the drivers work.  they just did on install.  nothing is listed in "hardware drivers", but opengl works03:12
WebcamWonderOn0bi_: Working well for many many people. Although there are specific models where hibernate and all power features don't work, so you should google your model number to see how much it is supported03:12
_2nathanhelp i was an M$ user until i actually read an EULA03:12
laughyn1nj4so perhaps my samba shares should be on a separate partition.  NOW i get it ! ;-)03:12
mrpinkyhey, i executed "usermod -G admin nbingham" to add myself to the "admin" group, but 1) it seems to have removed all my other groups, and 2) after i reboot it reverted my membership to what it was before i executed the command :( any tips?03:12
RedSoxis there anybody here who can give some step-by-step tips to install compiz cube?03:12
thief`laughyn1nj4, all your 'my docs' is under /home03:12
bruwstoutinstall compizconfig-setting-manager03:12
bruwstoutthen open and go into options03:12
RedSoxbruwstout was that for me?03:12
_2laughyn1nj4 so you asked for suggestions, i gave you one.03:12
thief`and if in nautilus, you hit ctrl-h you'll see hidden files. it's rally just like yer my docs in winders03:12
orbstraso if I connect my osx formated external HD to my ubuntu server... can I access it with the regular mount command?? I am connecting to my server wtih CLI through ssh03:13
rodolfothief` and what is this command?03:13
BarridusWebcamWonder, i did work with a nvidia board previously, and my experiences then matched yours03:13
WebcamWonderBarridus: Intel drivers are nice, they work. They aren't a proprietary blob like nVidia. You won't loose them over kernel upgrades :)03:13
redvamp128RedSox:  try this site Forlong's Blog - I'm trying to comprehend the things I write <http://forlong.blogage.de/en>03:13

laughyn1nj4_2 .. much appreciated.!03:13
redvamp128RedSox:  That site at the bottom has a link to a guide on how to configure the cube and how to work compiz03:13
nathanhelpredvamp128, BlueEagle, Whats the difference between Using Samba, and ntfs-3g? Can I not just use Samba to access the shared folders on Windows? or am I mis-connecting things?03:13
lstarnesLeeM1: some clients can do that03:13
thief`orbstra, taht i don't know. but i know it can read osx format. or you can  get a fs that can easily.03:13
RedSoxredvamp128 thnx a lot brother03:13
LeeM1im using pidgin03:13
lstarnesLeeM1: as far as I know, pidgin can't03:14
Giraffehey, i'm trying to get wireless working on a laptop with an ar242x atheros chipset...networkmanager doesn't let me connect (the connect button is greyed out) and wicd just won't connect.  what gives?03:14
LeeM1rawr :(03:14
orbstrathief` : fs?03:14
WebcamWonderLeeM1: I think there was a plugin to do that, but I don't remember. #pidgin would be a better source03:14
nathanhelpLeeM1: You can in WinXP pidgin. but im not sure where in Ubuntu03:14
thief`like one called ntfs-g that reads windows.03:14
thief`there'd be one for mac - if it's needed.03:14
orbstraoh i got ya thief`03:14
orbstrathnx bud03:14
redvamp128RedSox:  It is almost at the middle of the page about configure compiz-- but a good guide as well as some good links --03:14
thief`i've been using linux since november - and look at what i know now?03:15
RedSoxok redvamp128 tysm03:15
thief`see, you can learn.03:15
thief`a lot of reading - that's what's needed.03:15
Gustavo_G_I need to install the lzo2 development library. Any suggestions?03:15
thief`and time.03:15
laughyn1nj4so if i want to backup an entire partition (using tar) and it's mounted at /samba, do i just backup the /samba or is there a better way to do it?03:15
nathanhelpthief`: Thats my problem. I have 3 kids, a preggy wife, and a two storey house to look after. I dont have a lot of time :D03:15
redvamp128nathanhelp:  I am not sure if samba will default let you write to ntfs-- but does not hurt to have both installed03:15
_2so does anyone know why ssh would check permission of $HOME before deciding whether or not to use public keys form $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys  ?03:15
MethinX what i need to do is replace a windows domain controller with a ubuntu comp, will samba have this ability?03:16
thief`nathanhelp, i found, if i just ran progs like firefox and open office... and didn't really do much, i had  NO probs, but when you try to do things - like change thins, that's wherr eyou gottaa learn how.03:16
jrib_2: don't you think that makes sense?03:16
tomodachiMethinX: what kind of window domain controller?03:16
Steven_Meverytime I try to apt-get update I get this result. http://pastebin.com/d148bd85303:16
tomodachint, 2k ,r 2k303:16
_2jrib no not at all03:16
MethinXwindows server 200303:16
_2why should it /03:16
thief`MethinX, huge corps. use linux for that. so yes. but i don't know how.03:17
tomodachiMethinX: i think i depends on what features you use in your win2k3 domain controller03:17
tomodachiim not really skilled in the subject03:17
tomodachibut last time i checked samba server could replace a nt4 domain controller03:17
tomodachibut that was some time ago03:17
nomasteryodatomodachi, that is true03:17
_2jrib if the user owns the ~/.ssh  and it's accessable only by the user than what does the permission on ~ have to do with anything ?03:17
nomasteryodajsut not the active directory server03:17
thief`Steven_M, your keys are bad.03:18
thief`del them.03:18
MethinXok thanks03:18
laughyn1nj4ahem rm them03:18
thief`or use synaptic, there is options in there to screw with the keys.03:18
thief`type sudo synaptic03:18
bruwstoutwouldnt it be rm -rf03:18
WebcamWonderthief`: gksu for graphical please :)03:18
kindofabuzzhow do i make a sym link to folders in a folder but not the main folder?03:18
thief`what really does that do? i've done both...03:19
_2jrib or said another way, it makes about as much sense to me as it checking the perms on  / would.03:19
WebcamWonder!gksu | thief`03:19
ubottuthief`: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)03:19
BrohanaHow would I disable having to have permission to write a file?03:19
laughyn1nj4Brohana:use windows03:19
Out_ColdBrohana, change the permissions to 77703:19
thief`777 is full control.03:20
thief`555 is read and execute isn't it?03:20
Steven_Mthief`: what would cause that, I didn't do anything to them?03:20
thief`chmod 555 filename?03:21
Gustavo_G_I am trying to install the lzo2 development library but am not sure how to proceed. Any suggestions?03:21

Out_Coldthief`, read up about on permission numbers... keep yourself as a 6 or 7 and change the rest to 5,6 or 703:21

thief`yeah, i know what ya mean Out_Cold03:21
tomodachihmm Taladan maybe salesforce.com is something?03:21
WebcamWonderthief`: That is just a theme icon mismatch. It is fine03:21
mrpinkyTaladan, webERP (small and nice) or Compiere (bloated)03:21
thief`i don't really screw with perms. just for me  trusty pr0n dir.03:21
tomodachihavent looked on crm systems for quite some time ..03:21

thief`yeah, thought so... dumb error ( i have an eee so my fonts / icons are tiny)03:22
try2freemy local systems can't access the Internet after shorewall clear. and restart. how to fix that? before that everything ok.03:22

laughyn1nj4that's one dir i keep private 700, thief03:22
Out_Coldthief`, i have had servers and ssh boxes that i've needed to change several permissions.. it's really a good thing to learn if anyone other than yourself has access to your comp03:22
mrpinkycmon i don't want to reinstall ubuntu just because i can't get my admin membership back :( please help me :)03:22
bruwstoutthat is the folder i encrypt03:22
thief`Out_Cold, thing with me (for now at least) is - i'm theonly one even close to my pruter that has  a clue about linux.03:23

thief`Out_Cold,  my /pr0n is hidden as well. just in case lil nephew comes along and finds nautilus... hahah03:23
therootestI have installed the compiz but the cube wont work. Can someone please help me?03:23
Taladanmrpinky: you deleted admin group?03:23
tomodachitherootest: how does it not work?03:24
Taladanour just removed user from membership?03:24
TheFunkbombWhere are the default GDMs (log in screens) stored?03:24
thief`mrpinky, why do you think you lost admin?03:24
Out_Coldyea like i said, one user, who cares..03:24
zumzmrpinky: live cd and edit it?03:24
nathanhelpok Basic question. Lets say (for real example that i can learn off) I dont have ntfs-3g in my synaptic list. I have the website however and I want to install the ntfs-3g drivers. Whats the difference between Source and Binary? (both sound the same to me).03:24
tomodachitherootest: have you installed compizconfig settings manager?03:24
tomodachitherootest:  your need to enable the cube there03:24
thief`i'd think losing root would be hard to do.03:24
therootesttomodachi: i have everything installed from adept. Then i open CCSM and choose the cube and the rotating cube effects.03:24
=== Munchkinguy_ is now known as Munchkinguy
WebcamWondernathanhelp: You would have to compile the entire driver yourself. Compiling is a pain, and most of the time dependency hell03:25
mrpinkythief` because when i do "id" it doesn't include admin :(03:25
therootesttomodachi: and then it just doesnt do anything!03:25
macman.. guys i tried to do a md5sum on a iso and it said : No such file or directory .. any ideas ?03:25
Spreadsheetghostdog21: this is one of the most active channels in all of irc03:25
tomodachithere are several cube plugins maybe youre using the wrong one? or you dont have any keys assigned to the action03:25
ghostdog21sorry, but i've a problem anyone time 4 helping me?!03:25
mrpinkyzumz, but edit what...? i checked my /etc/group and "admin:x:115:nbingham" is in there :( it just doesn't appear when i "id" myself :(03:25
Taladanmrpinky: go into recovery and edit /etc/group03:25
Spreadsheetmacman: maybe put the right path to the file? ;)03:25
nathanhelpWebcamWonder: What does that mean? what is compiling? Please explain as clearly as you can, I'm trying to learn but theres a lot to take in.03:25

macmanlaughyn1nj4 its version 303:26
draeday_hey everytime i'm playing music with listen it freezes and i dont know y03:26
WebcamWondernathanhelp: Sure. The source, is the source code itself (what developers write). It is then compiled (machine code - something computers can read/understand) into a binary03:26
TheEdge_i am using Mplayer  put when ever i play a dvd i can't use ctrl+m  nothing happens.. also when I click a menu button in the picture nothing happens03:26
TheFunkbombWhere are the default GDMs stored?03:27
WebcamWondernathanhelp: Binaries are highly platform dependent (so, a binary for a 32bit OS will mostof the time not work with 64 bit OS)03:27
tomodachiTheEdge_: what is ctrl m supposed to do?03:27
nathanhelpWebcamWonder:  so a binary file are the ones i want to download?03:27
orbstrahey how do I unmount the USB drive i just mounted in ubuntu linux thruogh CLI03:27
macmanno good03:27
mrpinkyTaladan, my username is already there "admin:x:115:nbingham" :( but after i tried to add myself to a group with usermod, "id" no longer shows membership to any groups except the one i tried to add, i lost "admin" group as far as "id" is concerned :( but still have it as far as "/etc/group" is concerned03:27

nathanhelpbinary for the Ubuntu x86 platform?03:27
Spreadsheetmacman: $ ls03:27
_2TheFunkbomb /etc/gdm/03:27
WebcamWondernathanhelp: In order to solve the pain that is caused by compiling (trust me it is a pain if things don't work out properly), Ubuntu gives many many softwares as binaries tailored to your OS03:27
mrpinkythief`, "id" says uid=100003:27
TheFunkbomb_2, that makes sense03:28
TheEdge_tomodachi: it should send you to the DVD menu03:28
supernoobthe other day a friend put some  music on my MP3 player, but he put it in random folders accidentally. How can I compare the difference in folders on my mp3 player with my main laptop music folder?03:28
thief`mrpinky,  i'm no expert but i believe 1000 is root03:28
tomodachiTheEdge_: open it in terminal03:28
therootesttomodachi: i have the plugins thing installed from the adept manager. It cant be the wrong cube. And the hotkeys are OK. I think the problem is that compiz is not my default windows manager and i dont know how to make it default.03:28
thief`my uid is 100003:28
TheFunkbombawesome name by the way.  It's really you03:28
tomodachiand see what the std out logging says03:28
thief`mrpinky, i believe 1000 is the first user created at install.03:28
WebcamWondernathanhelp: Yes, but it is much more preffered that you get the packages from Ubuntu repositories since they have been tested by many many peopl03:28
lstarnesthief`: root is either 003:28
_2thief` uid = 0  is superuser03:28
lstarneser, without the either03:28
mrpinkythief`, that would make sense, i only have one account, which i created at install.03:28
TheEdge_tomodachi: Mplayer ??03:28
tomodachiTheEdge_: yes03:29
thief`mrpinky, ok, then type sudo id03:29
tomodachiopen a terminal03:29
nathanhelpWebcamWonder: Ok. I have no ntfs-3g in my accessible list. Restricted is enabled. what else can i do to access them?03:29
Taladanmrpinky: I'm not sure then dude...afaik that's the file that determines group membership03:29
tomodachithen open gmplayer from there03:29

TheEdge_tomodachi: who do i do that.. only been using Linux/ubuntu for 2 days now03:29
nathanhelpWebcamWonder: 8.1003:29
_2thief` uid = 1000 ~ ?   is the normal user range, as specified in some config in /etc03:29
mrpinkythief`, "sudo id" tells me "nbingham is not in the sudoers file", which also makes sense, because i don't seem to have "admin" group membership03:29

nathanhelpWebcamWonder: Gnome.03:30

mrpinkytomodachi, yes i restart in recovery console and choose the "root prompt" option03:31

tomodachi_2: im using 8.10 , im in the group adm03:36
nickrudjrib, nah, you're just piling on the good side03:36
jribtomodachi: but that's not why you can sudo03:36
thief`tomodachi, i play a lot of xvid / divx and they work great...03:36
_2tomodachi did you clean install or upgrade ?03:36
n2diyh4x0r: I forgot about Windows 7 years ago, this is for my buddy, and the question was, how to do a bare metal install?03:36
tomodachijrib: yes it is03:36
thief`tomodachi, do you mean screwy ones like mkv and ogg and crap?03:36
mrpinkyhow do i find out what my ubuntu version is? the about box doesn't appear to have it :(03:37
jribtomodachi: read your /etc/sudoers03:37
tomodachijrib: the adm group is in the sudoers file03:37
ubottuTo find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »03:37
InevGlitchQuick question:, In general, can I expect more hardware to work better with 8.04 than with 8.10 ?03:37
nickrudtomodachi, you shouldn't argue with jrib, he actually does development in ubuntu03:37
_2tomodachi but did you clean install or upgrade ?03:37
h4x0rgoogle it! you will find a nice tutorial03:37
tomodachijrib: its called %admin in the sudoers file, i guess thats a variable or something not the exact name03:37
tomodachi_2: clean install03:37
TheEdge_thief: libdvdnav: Can't read name block. Probably not a DVD-ROM device. is the error i get when i start a dvd03:37
nathanhelpWinxp cannot access ext3 filesystems correct?03:37
_2<tomodachi> jrib: its called %admin in the sudoers file  <<<<  see i told you so03:37
jribtomodachi: it really is admin, that's the name of the group03:37
tomodachinickrud: im not arguing im stating facts03:37
n2diyh4x0r: thanks for the pointer.03:38
h4x0rif am not wrong even in youtube is a tutorial03:38
nathanhelp*without problems.03:38
thief`n2diy, there are tons of guides on dual boot.   http://letmegooglethatforyou.com/?q=dual+boot+ubuntu+windows03:38
nickrudtomodachi, ok, you can do a test for yourself. Create two users, add one to the adm group the other to the admin. See which can sudo03:38
AhadielMy friend just updated his Intrepid install and now there's no ubuntu kernels in grub. Is there a way to fix this from the livecd?03:38
Ahadiellisted in grub*03:38
_2tomodachi sudo test command.   sudo echo boo03:38
tomodachi_2: u guys probably right03:38
n2diythief`: I don't need a guide on dual boot, I need a guide on bare metal installing.03:38
thief`Ahadiel, edit the menu.ls file... it's easy. and it's normal.03:38
tomodachicant bother to check thnx for having the patience to correct me03:39

nickrudOut_Cold, I've lost track of the tests like that I've created for myself, before I found irc to waste time on and occasionally get a question answered ;)03:39
Ahadielthief`, Well yeah... but what exactly do I put in it?03:40
n2diythief`: Sorta, start with an infected Win box, wipe the drive, MBR, etc..., and reinstall Win then Ubuntu.03:40
Out_Coldyea... i waste more time just chatting in here than i do figuring out my system03:40
thief`n2diy, that's what i thought. it's easy (BUT do windows install first) a MUST. (for easiness.)03:40
h4x0rknowledge is to share, not to keep it, third rule in the black book03:40
_2tomodachi to explain a little more clearly,  if not specified earlier in /etc/sudoers as a "symbol"  then anything appearing as  %blah is a dirrect referance to the group by said name "blah" in my example.03:40
therootesti managed to install the compiz fusion cube BUT there are only 2 sides on the cube. How can i make it 4 sided?03:40

_2nathanhelp of course not.03:45
thief`n2diy, Ahadiel maybe both could benefit from this: i had to fix my boot sector once (windows attacked it) - i forget what i did exactly, but i google and read.... use a live ubuntu cd and you can use it to fix grub / booting.03:45
mrpinkyhmm "usermod -g admin nbingham" doesn't appear to change my GID. after the command, "id" still shows "gid=1000(nbingham)" not "gid=XXXX(admin)"?03:45

ari_stressguys, anyone use lenovo g400? does the pc speaker still works? i cannot get sound from the pc speaker04:16
kazekagi_hmmm yes, try turning that off perhaps.04:16
kazekagi_Compiz too be exact04:16
foxwoodskazekagi_: that's your problem04:17
_2os11 sshing into a dynamic ip ?04:17
foxwoodskazekagi_: try the fixes discussed here: http://wiki.compiz-fusion.org/VideoPlayback04:17
foxwoodskazekagi_: let me know how it works out.04:18
_2os11 the fact that the address has changed is cause for concern if you use static ip's but not for dynamic ip's as far as i know.    someone can correct me if ssh uses mac addresses rather than ip addressing04:19
os11i can connect it at home04:19
os11but i am outside now04:19
kazekagi_Fantastic Foxwoods.. Worked like a charm.. still abit grainy, but nothing i cant live with:D Thx a lot!04:19
os11so how to solve the problem?04:20
Boogessh is a layer 3 protocol. it uses ip addresses04:20
raviousAnyone have any advice for how to manually configure the new xorg included with xubuntu 8.10? The xorg.conf seems not to be used to apply configurations anymore.04:20
_2os11 the message you pastebined says the hostkey changed  so if you can't login with password then you'll have to get the new hostkey04:20

_2os11 that indicates that the ssh server is configured to allow only public/private key access04:22
=== LBSources- is now known as LBSources
os11_2, so what does it mean?04:23
zumzit means give more info04:23
os11ssh user@xx.xx.xx.xx ??04:24
_2os11 means you wont be able to access that system under the current conditions.  something will have to change.   1. you get the new public key   2. the server is reset to accept password ident  3. you find an exploit and gain access the hard way04:24
foxwoodskazekagi_: no problem04:24
os11how to get new public key?04:24
werdnumos11: ssh-keygen04:25
_2os11 from the server you are trying to access04:25
foxwoodsravious: what do you mean it's no longer used?04:25
os11i am not home now, my server is at home04:25
_2what i can't understand is why ~/ permission disables public key access  when ~/.ssh[.*] permission is unchanged.04:26
raviousThe xorg.conf file on xubuntu 8.10 is no longer used to provide xorg server settings, its just a blank file.. But its using the default video driver rather than the i810 that it needs to use.. but i cant seem to find anyway to switch the driver sence the xorg.conf is an empty file04:26
merrntMy computer needed to reboot after installing some updates, and now I get an Error 15: File not found04:26
raviousand im not comfortable enough with the xorg.conf to rewrite it toatlly from scratch, i've always just edited it when i needed to make changes to it04:28
JesperHansenravious: I just found the same problem04:28
_2ravious add the info to the xorg.conf  it still reads it,  just doesn't depend on it04:28
=== lance_ is now known as Guest88487
foxwoodsravious: where are you looking for xorg.conf.....cause it's definitely still in use04:28
_2JesperHansen ^ too04:28
foxwoodsstrange that it wasn't there04:28
usserravious, try Xorg -config04:28
foxwoodsokay, good04:28
usserravious, or Xorg -configure04:28
usserravious, i forgot which, it'll create a basic setup in the current directory04:29
ravioususser: is that something that could be run from remote via ssh?04:29
_2usser that breaks xorg for me.   not sure it's good advice04:29
usserravious, yes sure04:29
foxwoodsravious: if usser's suggestion doesn't work, exit the x-server and use sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:29
foxwoodsthat should generate an xorg.conf which you can then configure if need be04:29
syzygyI know I should ask this in the alsa channel, but I already did...with no response04:29
JesperHansenfoxwoods: leaves the file blank as well04:29
usser_2, i just did it, that was on a clean headless install though with xorg just installed04:29
syzygyhttp://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/pool/main/g/gnome-alsamixer/gnome-alsamixer_0.9.7~cvs.20060916.ds.1-2_amd64.deb can I dl this alsamixer...or do I have to have a special kernel first?04:30
_2usser i didn't say it breaks all xorg's   just that it does mine.04:30
foxwoodssyzgy: you can download it and it should work fine as long as you have a amd64 processor04:30
JesperHansenman... I am really getting ready to drop ubuntu on all three machines and installing windows.04:30

h4x0ris so many ways , from terminal or graphical,04:35
foxwoodsBenSmith: if you mean a regular hard drive, what prevents you from using the regular server CD?04:35
_2BenSmith you can use any of several boot loaders for that  grub2 lilo grub syslinux (probably more)04:35
merrntI'm getting an Error 15: File Not Found when I try to boot, how do I tell grub where to look for my boot partition?04:35
foxwoodsBenSmith: just as long as when you install, you specify the right device for grub to install to, it should work fine04:36
khmer42h4x0r: Terminal is what I'm looking for really. This is the problem there seems to be many ways, just looking for most straight forward to I don't need to mess around too much with each machine I will be remoting in to.04:36
BenSmithfoxwoods: I'm sorry i'm extremely new at this.  Grub?04:36

_2merrnt  syntax error  hd(0,1)04:37
_2merrnt (hd0,1)04:38
foxwoodsBenSmith: if you click that, you'll see it asks which device to install grub to (grub is the program that boots your linux kernel)04:38
JesperHansenfoxwoods: I am having a strange problem. When I move slowly with my mouse, then it lags. It doesn't move before I have moved with it with 10px on the screen. If I move it fast, then it still moves with 10px, but faster so I cant see it lags... glxgear is still 600fps, so its not OS lag, but only mouse lag. Heavily.04:38
merrntgiving it a shot, thanks _2 !04:38
CoJaBo-AztecWhat all should I check to find out why ssh and apache can't be reached from the internet? Seems Ubuntu has something called AppArmor, could that be doing it and how would I check?04:38
foxwoodsBenSmith: do a fdisk -l in a terminal window to see which drive is the one you want to install to, then type that (i.e. /dev/sdb) into that device to install to box04:39
khmer42h4x0r: ssh is cool, but don't I need to install openssh-server on each machine?04:39

JesperHansenfoxwoods: it decreased the lag to 5px on the lowest possible setting :P04:43
h4x0rspill the default is the best .04:43
foxwoodsJesperHansen: lowest possible setting? shouldn't you try getting it to the highest setting? also what mouse is this?04:44

bbs_2: ok -- is that rolling release?04:46
JesperHansenfoxwoods: acceleration is slow and threshold is low. Anywhere higher makes the lag between mouse updates even higher04:46

bbs_2: LTS04:46
bbsi'm a programmer mind you04:46

saranyaany one know what is the problem here:install ruby but an error message comes like this E:unable to fetch some archives, may be run apt-get update or  try with --fix-missing? how to use this05:03
foxwoodsJesperHansen: maybe........try compiling your own kernel ?? :P05:03
jheizerAnyone here any good with PXE booting?05:03
foxwoodssaranya: did you type sudo apt-get install ruby (and tabbing with auto-complete to make sure that you're installing a real package?)05:04
JesperHansenfoxwoods: even tried. Laggy as well. But I am looking at the mouse module. Cant determine the right module tho.05:04
foxwoodsJesperHansen: yeah, I wouldn't know which it would be, but two possibilities to fix: one is to dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg in case that somehow screwed up your mouse05:04
Mean_Adminsaranya: did you also sudo apt-get update ?05:04
* _2 worries about infonodes that explain how to recover data like this "methods that might work is some cases are described at at" <<< "methoods" plural, "is" singular, "at at" duplicated without cause....05:04
foxwoodsJesperHansen: other possibility: see if you can find the default mouse module for your previous kernel05:05
* _2 also notes that "is" was a typo for "in" in the origenal.05:05
foxwoodsJesperHansen: or if you still have that old kernel, you can boot into it and try an lsmod05:05
saranyafoxwoods: My system is connected in Internet so it take all the packages from that I think05:05
JesperHansenfoxwoods: maybe. I see that uhci_hcd is the usb mouse.05:05
JesperHansenfoxwoods: the old kernel is unavailable05:05
BenSmithfoxwoods:  I just used System>Administration>Create a USB Startup Disk05:06
JesperHansenfoxwoods: not ext4 supported :)05:06
Mean_Adminsaranya: yeah but the thing that lists the packages needs to update itself fro mtime to time05:06

Alice22Hello i have a webcam logitech and i want to instal it on my ubuntu...05:55
bullgard4izinucs: Do 'processes owned by root' include the 'processes owned by me'?05:55
foxwoodsnitam: can you run the linux install cd, get to prompt, mount the drive, and then fix the grub menu.lst?05:56
hellhound_foxwoods: i am having to type it out to put in pastebin05:56
foxwoodsnitam: how is your linux/grub broken05:56
spillAlice22: did you try just plugging it in?  go to the repositories and download the program called cheese.05:56
foxwoodshellhound_: can you see any section there with Screen?05:56
foxwoodsJust pastebin that, and anything that references "Screen"05:56

nitamfoxwoods, I'm looking for another way to do that, since I need to re execute grub-install ... I was thinking something like running root= or image= or boot= or whatever the option is, in order to boot my linux directly from the cd install prompt05:58
foxwoodsKruxer: destroy?05:58
spillAlice22: have you tried it yet to see if it works?05:58
nitamIm not even sure if such a thing is possible05:58

FinnishHow do I uninstall svn-version of ffmpeg?06:06
mindrapeDefcon1 - just recompile it... it needs to be updated to use newest kernel modules06:06
n8tuserevilGUI -> you still can run iptables06:06

evilGUIn8tuser: So just setup iptables?06:06
ubottuUbuntu, like any other linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'iptables' command (see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo), or GUI applications such as Firestarter (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE).06:06

Defcon1mindrape: I use virtualbox06:07
mindrapeFinnish - you can either sudo apt-get remove ffmpeg or dpkg --remove ffmpeg06:07
mindrapeeither should work06:07
mindrapeDefcon1 - recompile it.06:08

mindrapeDamienCassou - it could also be that you are trying to use too high a resolution on a graphics card that cant handle it.07:06
mindrapeDamienCassou: it may make sense to edit your xorg.conf and bump down the default res to like 1024x768 til you get it working07:06
DamienCassoumindrape: I don't think so because it worked on hardy07:06
DamienCassoumindrape: there nothing more on the xorg.conf than the virtual resolution07:07
mindrapeDamienCassou: lspci -k        see which graphics driver you are presently using.07:07

ari_stressguys, how to defragment in ubuntu?07:12
ubottuThe default Ubuntu filesystem (ext3) is engineered to avoid fragmentation issues in most cases, see http://linkpot.net/behead/ for a simple example on how it achieves this.07:12
_2ari_stress why  ?07:12
ari_stress_2: i just deleted many files, i thought i need to defrag, right? also i do lots of torrents07:13
_2ari_stress i doubt you need too.07:13
=== Daisuke-Ido is now known as Daisuke_Ido
_2ari_stress i deleted the files from an entire installation and installed a different distro without formating the fs while retaining all my data 50g on an 80g drive in a lappy.   no problems there.07:15
ari_stressmindrape: i read the page. seems make sense. but with torrents, it has got to be fragmented somehow, right?07:15
bullgard4Why is the process kondemand/0 running every few seconds on one Ubuntu 8.04.2 laptop but not on another ? It seems to be unrelated to the CPU frequency change rhythm indicated by the CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor applet.07:15
* JesperHansen sees how ubuntu has gotten worse and worse for each release 07:15
ari_stress_2: can we measure the performance of our filesystem? to know whether the fragmentation level is still ok07:16
_2ari_stress yes indeed   fsck -f the thing07:16
JesperHansenext4 is only available on alternative cd atm. for 9.04, right?07:17
_2ari_stress the highest i have ever seen yet is .5% non-contiguous07:17
ari_stressJesperHansen: better don't use ext4 yet, i read a bug of data loss07:17
JesperHansenari_stress: screw data loss07:17

ari_stressThe second scatters files all over the disk so there's plenty of free space if the file's size changes. It can also re-arrange files on-the-fly, since it has plenty of empty space to shuffle around. Very nice ext3 :)07:33

DamienCassouoliver_: I use eclipse to do Java programming but emacs for texts I have to write (like articles).07:37

Paddy_EIREoliver_: try them and see07:38
mindrapeoliver_ with about 8 keystrokes you can get more done in either of those than any bloated IDE.07:39
_2does netbeans require a gui ?07:39
oliver_I tried VIM07:39
DamienCassouoliver_: lot of shortcuts to move your cursor. never have to use the mouse. You can easily open distant files or edit files as root...07:39
jtajidinesh372: check out two bash guides here http://tldp.org/guides.html07:39
_2does netbeans require a gui ?07:39
dinesh372_2: actually i am unable to understand what u told me first time07:39

dr4gWhen i installed ubuntu it didn't ask me for the root password only the user i initally set up with sudo access. Can someone help me identify my root password ?09:53
DJones!root | dr4g:09:54
ubottudr4g:: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo09:54

CrownAmbassadorHi guys and gals. I've not been able to use my ADSL line since upgrading to Ubuntu 8.10 at the end of October. Searched around a lot, started threads in forums, reported bugs, but nothing. Got help here a week or so ago aswell, but couldn't figure it out. Has anyone else here heard of 8.10 having problems connecting to the internet via LAN/ADSL modem? The network card and modem works fine with Windows. I even tried the live CD10:09
CrownAmbassadorin my works computer and get the same result. Just don't understand how it can do this in 2 computers and most other people don't have this problem. Extremely frustrating.10:09

rainmanp7lesshate try changing that to um instead of intel to -> Device      "VESA Framebuffer"11:07

lesshastehi syockit / Jack_Sparrow11:38
lesshasteso deleting xorg.conf was the key to getting vesa to work11:38
ValentineXSAJMIRI: tell some more details what kind of internet you are trying etc11:39
syockitlesshaste: It makes xorg autodetect your settings11:39
SAJMIRIubottu: ok ,iam sorry11:39
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ok ,iam sorry11:39
Jack_Sparrowlesshaste getting rid of that nastly xorg was.. yes11:39
syockitlesshaste: anyway, it's weird it didn't detect your intel11:39

Jack_Sparrowlesshaste not just try switching vesa to intel11:39

lesshastesyockit, it says it has found intel and also that it is using vesa11:42
Jack_Sparrowlesshaste IS that the new one that was generated?11:42
lesshastesyockit, I don't know how to intrepret that11:42

rbowesMorning all11:44
rbowesI'm trying to enable the jave 64-bit plugin on Intrepid11:44
lesshastesyockit, sorry which one does? to be clear.. I moved xorg.conf out of the way and ran startx and then gave you the log11:44
rbowes*Sun java11:44
lesshastesyockit, sudo cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log11:45
rbowesI found this page: http://luke.faraone.cc/2009/01/native-64bit-java-plugin-in-ubuntu/11:45
syockitlesshaste: hmm. it looks like it's using intel driver for now11:45
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, lsb_release -a says 8.1011:45
rbowesThe commands in that article succeed11:45
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, are there any particular details you need?11:45
rbowesBut I don't get a working plugin in Firefox11:45
lesshastesyockit, it also says vesa right?11:45
ubottuYou can run Flash, Real, and Java plugins in AMD64 bit computers with Firefox. see the steps to follow at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava11:45
* oCean_ applied kernel updates.. booting11:45
syockitlesshaste: yup, but that is because it loads everything available11:46
Jack_Sparrowlesshaste no, im just on the wrong computer for those notes11:46
rbowesJack_Sparrow, thx - reading now11:46
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, ah ok :)11:46
lesshastesyockit, ok.. does it actually make a config file?11:46
lesshastesyockit, it seems not11:46
rainmanp7lesshaste do you have a link for your xorg.conf ? the current version that's working11:46
lesshasterainmanp7, I am not sure it makes one11:46
Jack_Sparrowlesshaste it does, may we see it11:46
syockitsyockit: no, that's how it's going to work from now on11:46
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, ls /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:46
lesshastels: cannot access /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory11:46
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, there are lots of files that start xorg.conf there11:47
syockitlesshaste: yes that should be correct11:47
lesshastebackups etc.11:47
ubottuKubuntu is Ubuntu with KDE, the K Desktop Environment, instead of Gnome. See http://kubuntu.org for more information - For support: #kubuntu - See also !KDE11:47
syockitlesshaste: if you still want xorg.conf, you can do xorg -configure again11:47
syockitand copy the created xorg.conf.new11:47
lesshastesyockit, ok thanks.. but I see I don't really need one :)11:47
syockitbut I don't recommend it11:47
Jack_Sparrowlesshaste sudo apt-get install pastebinit  && pastebinit /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:48
lesshastewell.. thanks all.. I would love to now make a useful bug report11:48
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, it's not there...11:48
syockitI needed it though, because hal doesn't load my touchscreen driver11:48
lesshasteJack_Sparrow, it doesn't make one11:48
syockitlesshaste: so you have your desktop running?11:48

lesshastesorry sir bot11:48
syockitI wonder why gdm failed. if you will, try restarting and see if login appears11:49
syockitif not, maybe gdm is problematic11:49
lesshastesyockit, would you mind if I go that in a bit.. I need to read my emails and it's 11:49am :)11:49
rbowesJack_Sparrow, as I read it, http://luke.faraone.cc/2009/01/native-64bit-java-plugin-in-ubuntu/ says the latest Sun JRE has native 64-bit plugin support11:49
