Jordan_Uacidicbase, Probably some program that doesn't play well with pulseaudio. You can try forcing everything to use pulseaudio or disable pulseaudio entirely00:03

cory8092does nyone know how to get a itouch to work on ubuntu00:06
Piethi. on 8.10, what do i need to do to make memtest selectable on boot?00:06
Jordan_Ugartral, There are some ( very few now ) that simply cannot use pulseaudio, I think that wine can but I am not sure how buggy it is ( as I understand it though any bugs would effect only wine, and not the rest of the apps using pulse ) but needs to be configured to use pulseaudio00:06

paradoxfox93I need to downgrade package cryptsetup, on an encrypted computer, i was just going to remove it via synaptic and then compile the version i need from source...while also 'make distclean'...is there a better way to do it?00:10
Jordan_Ugartral, I am not sure which is the best way for wine. You can try running "asoundconf set-pulseaudio". That should prevent wine from grabbing the sound card from pulse but it may not work, if it doesn't you can try setting wine to use OSS in winecfg and start wine with padsp, or try just setting wine to use esd which is compatible with pulse00:11
nassoActionParsnip, sensors gives me a bad value00:11
JorgeJorgessonI'm trying to install Rise of Nations under Wine and it says that it has a problem starting pidgen.dll. Is there a workaround or is this a common problem?00:11
nassoActionParsnip, it tells me that the temp is about 54 degrees. a reboot and check in bios tells me 40 degrees00:11
Jordan_Ugartral, By may not work with the asoundconf set-pulseaudio I mean that wine may not be able to play sound, it almost certainly will prevent wine from grabbing the sound card00:11
gartralJordan_U: part of it, is that i have two cardsd, and the intergrated one really doesnt work, but everything wants to use that00:12
ActionParsnipnasso: thats all i got00:12
nassoActionParsnip, okay. thanks anyway00:13
oCean_JorgeJorgesson: try channel #winehq00:13
Jordan_Ugartral, You might just need to set the correct sound card as default with "asoundconf list" ( to find the names of the cards ) and "asoundconf set-default-card <name>"00:14

jasballzugliefrog: idky but I guess its important to have boot instructions laid out there, or a boot manager, maybe "boot" or "chain0" or something like that, is there a file like that or "bootcfg"?01:07
`brandon`could i do it like this01:07
mrwesgrkblood13, this is for mp3's only01:07
jasballzSwede: have you tried it on a windows pc or a mac?01:07
mrwesas in music01:07
Dreamgliderthefeds, i'd do it with gparted01:07
`brandon`sudo apt-get insall desktop-gnome01:07
ugliefrogjasballz:ill look01:08
Swedejasballz: Yes, on three different Windows XP computer, it works without any problems on all of them.01:08
thefedsWhat's a primary and logical partition?01:08
thefedswhat's the difference?01:08

jasballzswede: i thot it might. hmmm...what filesystem is it? and does your ubuntu computer recognize other usb devices?01:08
thefedsWhat's a primary and logical partition01:08
thefedswhat should I make it?01:08
nerudai can't decide which version to download just for a test drive01:09
nerudai'm a jr sysad but i enjoy a nice windowing system etc01:09
nerudaany thoughts01:09
thefedsWhich is faster?01:09
mrwesneruda, try 8.04, it's long term support01:09
Swedejasballz: It is FAT32. Yes, the computers recognize all other usb-devices, maybe not a modem correctly, but I think that depends on a driver issue.01:09
nassoi currently have a multiple screens setup with one x-session in each screen. does anyone know if it is possible to have one window list in each screen that shows only the windows in that screen?01:09
nerudamrwes: basically everythings stable on it?01:09
Swedejasballz: So, all usb devices work.01:10
Sagacihow do i access and download updates in kubuntu01:10
mrwesneruda, very..that's why it is long term support01:10
jasballzswede: so you get most usb devices recognizes, yah i think you're right. Jauny has an expanded driver package database. Ok, so all but this work. so its specific to the usb drive?01:10
nerudamrwes: any complaints about 64-bit problems/compatibility issues?01:10
jasballzsagaci: I do "sudo update-manager -d" in terminal01:10
mrwesneruda, hrmm...64 bit seems pretty stable now, dunno what gains you'll get from it unless you have like 4gb of RAM01:11
Swedejasballz: Yes, I absolutely think it is specific to this drive.01:11
jasballzSagaci: make sure you have KDE installed first "sudo apt-get install kde"01:11
Sagaciok, and how do i get applications on my taskbar so i can switch betwen them01:11

phocusanyone install mandriva on the acer aspire one aoa150 ? about to go and buy one, want to make sure it works01:11
nerudamrwes: even though i'm testing it at home it might make its way onto a production system later that'll be maxed out as far as ram is concerned01:12
nerudamrwes: that's why i ask about 64-bit01:12
JolinatumHello01:12
jasballzphocus: im running ubuntu linux on acer aspire 4720z, i don't know about mandriva01:12
phocusor any distro, lol01:12
jasballzSwede: well, maybe google your drive make and ubuntu and see what comes up01:12
jasballzSagaci: did you lose your lower GNOME panel or something?01:12
jasballzSagaci: theres a number of dock packages. I use cairo01:13

Swedejasballz: One strange thing is that when I put the memory in one slot then lsusb give me a name of something that wasn't there before. But when I put the memory in another usb-port, then lsusb doesn't show the info.01:13
raVen1guys!who are familiar with wumi01:13
raVen1because i have a question01:13
ShirowHey, does anyone know of an application that will let me (from the command line, not a GUI) take an MP3 file and export a copy of it that is only 20 seconds from a specific starting point? E.g. from 60 seconds to 80 seconds, export clipped.mp301:13
mrwesneruda, how much ram do you have?01:13
nerudamrwes: so you recommend 8.04 (64bit) server edition to get an accurate picture?01:13
l7hi, i just inserted a command using crontab -e, can anyone tell me where this command is stored?01:13
l7it's not in /etc/crontab as i expected01:13
phocusshingouz: i think mplayer will do it01:13
mrwesneruda, are you planning on running a server? headless per se01:13
nerudamrwes: 4 on home, 16 at work01:13

raVen1any help me please? who used wumi to install ubuntu here?01:14
oCean_l7: in /var/spool/cron/crontabs/YourUserName01:14
Swedejasballz: Another strange thing is that it sometimes used to work the first 10 times I connected it, but then suddenly it stopped showing up. The drive worked sometimes, sometimes not, but now it never works.01:14
oCean_l7: however, the preferred way to "see" it is "crontab -l"01:14

jasballzl7: what do you mean "where the command is stored"?01:18
Shirowjasballz, yes, that's what I'm looking for. Used google, everything I found is gui based. Guess maybe I am looking wrong. Thanks for the tip though.01:19

FloodBot2glaksmono: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:21
glaksmonook FloodBot201:21
lstarnesglaksmono: that isn't a command.  You're supposed to add it to /etc/apt/sources.list01:21
jasballzneruda: pretty sure that if you run update-manager it takes care of itself, but if you download from repositories you have to find depencies and download those too01:21
jasballzShirow: what for?01:22
Shirowjasballz, creating short clips of files for my website.01:22
jasballzgalksmono: bad source? did you try wget?01:22
Flannelneruda: We don't do ports though.  Just use the repos and you won't have any issues.  Ubuntu isn't a rolling release type thing.  Each version of Ubuntu has a set version of each package, which only gets fixes, not upgrades.01:22
Bellahttp://smekaren.mybrute.com01:22
mrwesneruda, well if your using the apt-get package manager all dependencies will be met01:22
jasballzglaksmono: sounds like theres nothing there there's another thing, ekiga if you're looking for voip01:22
nerudajasbaltz: gentoo portage system would automatically find and download and compile those dependencies (which is sometime not the best thing) does pkg mgmt in ubuntu compare?01:22
nerudaflannel: i see01:23
Flannelneruda: When you try and install something, it automatically installs the depends, yes.01:23
nerudaflannel: good01:23
Swedejasballz: Well, it worked sometimes from the very first beginning. Just after I bought it. Then I formatted it but after a while it stopped. It didn't work well from start. Sometimes it did, sometimes it didn't. Now it doesn't work at all.01:23
jasballzShirow: ahh. Thats nice, i might do that for something...thats why you want terminal, right, to automate it?01:23
Shirowjasballz, right, I want to run a script that parses through directories, finds all the mp3s, creates a 20 second 64k clip and outputs it to my web server01:23
mrwesthat's what I said :)01:24
mrwesheh01:24
SwedeAnothe rquestion. Is it possible to use a portable mp3-player that Ubuntu recognize as a mp3-player as a USB drive to boot from?01:24
neruda8.04 server download is a LiveCD right?01:24
Jolinatumhi, i have Gateway tablet CX200X with ubuntu 8.04 but the stylus does not work01:24
jasballzneruda: hmmm, I don't think theres a pkg mgmt binary, but I do know that using apt-get or software sources or update manager takes care of them, but not if you download from http depositories thru firefox01:24
Jolinatumwhere can i find the driver?01:24
mrwesneruda, don't think it's a LIVE CD, no01:24
=== vij_ is now known as v-p
jasballzSwede: so, did you format in win or ubuntu? other than formatting it did you do anything to your distro? like install new packages? is it run consistently on other computers?01:25
Swedejasballz: I formated it in both Ubuntu and then Windows.01:25
jasballzshirow: thats pretty neat. Are you hosting mp3s clips? neato. hmmm, well there are ways...let me think01:25
glaksmonohow do you uninstall program?01:26
glaksmonousing command line?01:26
nerudamrwes, jas: gentoo has what's called a "portage tree" which is just a list of currently installed packages and their interconnectedness, so a sysad can look before leaping and also get a concise picture of what's on the system, any counterpart in ubuntu?01:26
jasballzswede: yeah, Ive had ubuntu recognize mp3 players as harddrives. But idk if you could boot from it. Probably01:26

nerudamrwes: shit i wanted a LiveCD01:26
Swedejasballz: I installed updates and maybe some other software, can't remeber, but something got installed. It didn't stop working right after an install though.01:26
jasballzJolinatum: neato. IDK if ubuntu has tablet capabilities. Prolly? Maybe google tablet, packages, and ubuntu or touch screen and tell me what you find.01:26
Ienorandglaksmono: or ... purge to remove settings as well01:26
Swedejasballz: It runs good on Windows XP, no problem at all.01:27
jasballzSwede: obviously your problem started after formatting it in windows. Can you back up the data and reformat in ubuntu on next good read?01:27
jasballzswede: not the best solution, but I suggest maybe booting from a livecd and seeing if it recognizes it01:27
scuniziJolinatum: it does support tablets.. depends on the tablet as to how easy or difficult it will be01:27
oCean_neruda: it is, virtually all linux (installation) cd's are "live" cd's01:27

jasballzshirow: I like it. Do you have any Macs? If you could write it to a CDRW or DVD RW and pop it in a mac, you could write a quick 'macro' with automator. Automator's ok, sometimes itworks, its alittle goofy. IDK if theres an analogue in ubuntu...let me check01:30

jasballzlinux_: ha ha, what do you need help with?01:44
Flannel!kernel | linny101:44
ubottulinny1: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - See also: /msg ubottu stages01:44
jasballzlinux_: thats weird. how did you install it?01:44
Guest55096The file is called Atomix, Nautilus was opened from the command line with "nautilus . &" and the directory was listed with "ls -al"01:44
erUSUL!kernel | linny101:44
Guest55096I've just built the file01:44
jasballzlinux_: did you check the md5 checksums? maybe you got a bad iso?01:44
linux_i installed it using live cd01:44
linux_i cant boot into any of the kernels, yeah i checked the md01:45
jasballzlinux_: but if you have vista download bcdedit and add an entry for neolinux and see if that works01:45
Number7linux_, do you get any error msgs ?01:45
linux_no boycott it just hangs01:45
jasballzlinux_: So the livecd booted? or did you use xp to install? you cant boot into linux if you installed in vista or higher.01:45
wafflelinux_, does it get past trying to boot into it, does it hang while its loading?01:46
linux_shows the boot from hdd 0,0 then hangs from there01:46

EGLN|R|SpunkyAlright I need somebody to PM me if they know how to use and setup proftpd and I really would preffer it to be PM than public so if anyone knows please PM me.01:46
Swedejasballz: I don't have a CD/DVD drive on my netbook. That's why I have to use usb flash drive too boot from.01:46
linux_cant even boot ubuntu using live cd, im currently usin different distros live cd just to try and c if anyone can help01:47
wafflelinux_, are you booting any other OS's?01:47
Guest55096iceroot: Interestingly enough, when I do "touch Atomix" I get another file called Atomix (two as seen by Nautilus).01:47
erUSULRoland-: ooops i forgot about port numbers.... this time with cut « cut -d' ' -f2  test.txt | cut -d: -f1 »01:47
linux_no waffle, just ubuntu01:47
Swedejasballz: And I also want to use my completely new flash drive on my Ubuntu computers, not only on Windows.01:47
linny1the ubuntu method of kernel update/recompiling documented in the wiki will that work even tho i dont have a standard ubuntu kernel atm ?01:47
erUSULRoland-: test.txt is the file in question01:47
SwedeAnybody have some experience of a-data usb flash drive on Ubuntu 8.10?01:48
wafflelinux_, did you format your hard drive? if its hanging right after the boot, then it could be a problem with the boot sector.01:48
wafflelinux_, did you say you can't boot off the livecd anymore?01:48
Flannellinux_: If you can't boot the liveCD, have you tried the "check CD for defects' or "verify integrity of the cd" options on the CD boot menu?01:48
linux_yeah waffle and yeah flannel01:48
Flannellinux_: And what happened?01:48
Number7the liveCD should start unless it's damaged01:48
linny1linux_: i would use the base install to get a terminal the use apt to install the desktop01:48
linux_i find it strange how i cant even boot from live cd01:49
linny1linux_: did you check your bios to make sure booting from cd is enabled01:49
Number7linux_, do you have any other liveCDs to try to boot from ?01:49
wafflelinux_, when you say you can't even boot from the livecd, do you mean you can't even get to the menu, or you can't get to the live ubuntu from the CD?01:49
linux_sorry waffle got confused, i havent formatted, trying to see if there is a way of fixing first01:49
linux_yeah number7, i currently using opensuse now just to get online01:49
Number7so this CD works01:50
Flannellinux_: it's entirely likely that the Ubuntu CD you have isn't a good CD.  Try reburning, verify the md5, etc.01:50
linny1linux_:sounds like bad media01:50
Number7then I guess you have a bad image01:50
linux_yup opensuse works01:50
Number7yh, or just a bad disc01:50
linny1:) we all agree01:50
linux_:( lol there is nothing else you guys can think of trying at the boot screen or editing on the boot parameters01:51

unopkpuljek, you could terminate the dhclient process.01:54

nigtvhello, i am having problems with drag and drop, as well as a sudo mv command, even when root, and moving from ubuntu to xp partition, it only seems to be moving about half the files01:56

Harry``the disk is fine, as it worked before01:57
nigtvtried both of those01:57
nigtvcp and mv, as root and as normal01:57
nigtvhold on you know what01:58
Jordan_Ulighttitan, No, install openssh-server on the computer you want to get files from and then run: "scp /path/to/file remote_username@remote_ip:/path/to/destination"01:58
unopkpuljek, i'm not sure this behaviour your experiencing is normal .. can you request your admin extend the DHCP lease for your machine? or use a static assignment?01:58

nigtvaha i think i just figured it out whats the syntax for recursive move again01:58
linny1nigtv: so are you losing files in the cp or mv or on the unzip ?01:58
nigtvmv -t dest source01:58
nigtvright01:58
linny1-R01:58
nigtvwell i dont think im doing recursive mv01:58
nigtvthat would explain it01:58
Jordan_Ulighttitan, I think you can also setup samba graphically and that might be easier for you but I don't personally have much experience with it01:58
kpuljekunop: i can't request anything from him :S ... i just need to make sure that, once my lease expires, dhclient doesn't swarm my syslog with requests, so that he doesn't disconnect me01:58

unopkpuljek, look at the dhclient.conf manpage - there seem to be quite a few options you can use in your dhclient.conf file to control dhclient.02:04
nigtvokay, there is no -R option02:04
nigtvi guess there is no way to recursively mv, but uhm02:04
nigtvmaybe if i find -exec mv02:04
nigtvbut im thinking that would put them all into one big directory02:04
unopnigtv, why would you want to recursively mv something .. if you move the parent dir, you move all children anyway02:04
nigtvwell no, not exactly02:04
nigtvive unzipped this 7z, its about 8.6gb, otherwise i would love to try things out02:05
nigtvbut it takes about an hour whether it works or not02:05
nigtvand im moving it from the ubuntu part to the xp part02:05
nigtveven as sudo, mv only moves with depth 102:05
unopnigtv, so, wait, you want to move all files in subdirectories into a single destination?02:05
nigtvno02:06
nigtvmv and preserve path02:06

nigtvwell, then why isnt it moving recursively on my machine, argusususus02:07

mdmkolbeHuufarted: heh, I've been wrangling tar file formats all night.  Every different implementation seems to support only some subset of the meta-data (e.g. acls) so I was coming here in hopes I might find an easier to just do it myself03:24

musikgoat|mainmdmkolbe: the metadata of linux files? there are flags in tar to keep the permissions and ownerships intact03:25
KruyKazehey guys can you tell me how to burn a disc without interrupting samba everytime?03:25
jribspaceBARbarian: that doesn't really make sense03:25

jribspaceBARbarian: what exactly do you want to configure?03:26
pjwafflehi im here to help im an intermediate user03:26
Huufartedmdmkolbe: example:  tar cvjf ~/backup.tar.bz2 /etc     (this will back up your entire /etc directory, including perms and ownership, into the compressed tarball)03:26
mdmkolbeHuufarted: I don't think the version of tar that comes with ubuntu will do acls (/me double checks)03:27

MikazeYes.  Which version of 'edbrowse' is supported.  I'm blind and can't use Firefox via gnome-orca, since it's crap.03:27

MikazeJust wanna know if the latest version of edbrowse is being supported by Ubuntu, because I'm ditching Debian...the last distro to support the handicapped.03:30
mdmkolbeHuufarted: ACLs are not part of the standard permissions.  So unless your tar was specifically compiled to support acls, they will not be preserved.  (Ubuntu's version doesn't appear to be.)03:30
jribspaceBARbarian: an input driver different than "mouse"03:30
acce2451Ubuntu+1 is dead, we are back.03:30

musikgoat|mainHuufarted: i would start to guess drivers, but I wouldn't know what to suggest, take a look into what module is controlling your nic, and make sure its best03:41

raVenguys...are these 283 updates for ubuntu 8.10 safe?04:09
spaceBARbarianjrib: this hal stuff doesnt work :P tried a whole bunch of different settings but mouse is still sensitivity as hell04:09
musikgoat|mainraVen: yes04:09
HuufartedraVen: as long as you're not using third party repositories, you should be good to go04:09
raVenit is recommended to install it right now?this is not ubuntu 9.04 right?04:09
musikgoat|mainraVen: if you haven't touched your repositories, then you are only getting updates from ubuntu04:09
raVenwhat do you mean by 3rd party repositories?04:09
HuufartedraVen: if you have 8.10 installed, it will not bump you to 9.0404:09
jribspaceBARbarian: check your /var/log/Xorg.0.log .  You restarted hal and X?04:09
HuufartedraVen: if you don't know what a third party repository is, then you're in the clear.  :)04:10
raVenwahahahaha...lol..just for the sake of being ignorant...what is it04:10
musikgoat|main!repo | raVen04:10
ubotturaVen: The packages in Ubuntu are divided into several sections. More information at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/components - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecommendedSources for the recommended way to set up your repositories04:10
WTFsure--hmm hello , is it possible to install ventrilo  in ubuntu 8.10 32 bits yet?04:10
MK-ubuntuWTFsure--, use wine..04:11
musikgoat|mainraVen: 3rd party, of course, means not ubuntu04:11
raVenoh my...there are a lot of things to learn about linux T_T04:11
raVenhow about wubi?is it one?04:11
musikgoat|mainraVen: wubi is just a method of installing04:11
WTFsure--i managed to install with wine , but it wont open, its just shows me the ventrilo main window and wont run04:11
HuufartedraVen: the best explanation is, it's a server you pull programs from.  In Windows, you find a company's website, download a package, hope it installs.  In Linux, you run one command and it's installed.  It downloads it from these repositories.04:11
UbbyCDdang heck of a time for the battery to go dead04:11
raVenoooooooooohhh....ok i get it..thanks guys..hope you are not mad..04:12
HuufartedraVen: mad for what?  Every single person in here had limited knowledge in here at one point.  Asking is the best way to find that info.04:12
UbbyCDdid anyone else get a kick out of that link?04:13
musikgoat|mainexcept jrib :-)04:13
UbbyCDmy pc died04:13
UbbyCD*battery04:13
raVentherefore, i should accept these 283 updates...04:13
raVenHuufarted: thank you..because im a newbie..its my very first time to touch linux, specifically ubuntu...04:13
HuufartedUbbyCD: no.  You're attempting to link malware infested links and that's not tolerated.04:13
FlannelUbbyCD: Again, it's offtopic for this channel.04:13
HuufartedraVen: I would recommend installing those updates.  I doubt it will hurt anything.04:13
gasullmusikgoat|main psywiped Huufarted: 5.7G /var, 7.6G /usr .  Should I empty /var?  How?04:14
UbbyCDlighten up were on ubuntu .. it was poling fun at windowz04:14
raVenok then..^_^ thank you again huufarted and musikgoat04:14
HuufartedraVen: any package that makes it into the official repositories (where the updates come from) are deemed stable.04:14
jribUbbyCD: please stay on-topic here04:14
musikgoat|maingasull: your apt cache could be taking up alot of space04:15
raVenoh..so the update manager releases ONLY stable updates and stuff..04:15
HuufartedraVen: correct...  UNLESS you've added third party repositories, which you have not done and therefore don't need to worry about that quite yet.  :)04:15
musikgoat|maingasull: you can run sudo apt-get clean04:16
musikgoat|maingasull: then check the size of /var04:16
raVenalas! now i get it ^_^ is it true that every installation in ubuntu doesnt require any reboots...04:16
UbbyCDseriously though im skeered i have viruses now04:16
Ashfire908What version of nautilus does Ubuntu use?04:16
gasullmusikgoat|main: OK.  Thanks04:16
* gasull running sudo apt-get clean04:16
musikgoat|mainraVen: no thats incorrect... any kernel update requires a reboot04:16
UbbyCDalso is there some kind of exploit in firefox now?04:16
FlannelAshfire908: Which version of Ubuntu?04:16
HuufartedraVen: no.  If you upgrade the kernel, it will require a reboot04:16
bazhangUbbyCD, stop that04:16
HuufartedraVen: but kernel updates are very rare.04:17
Ashfire908Flannel, 8.1004:17
raVenuhm..and what is a kernel now ^_^04:17
UbbyCDlike it was kinna hijacking my firefox a bit04:17
musikgoat|main!kernel | raVen04:17
ubotturaVen: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - See also: /msg ubottu stages04:17
UbbyCDasked if i wanted to download a bunch of stuff without me even clicking on things04:17
gasullmusikgoat|main: It changed from 5.7G to 5.6G04:17
FlannelAshfire908: 2.2404:17
HuufartedraVen: the kernel is just the very core of Linux.  It's something that's transparent to most users.  They don't know it's there.04:17
UbbyCDi felt violated is there a patch for firefox to fix that04:17
tritiumUbbyCD: stay on topic.  #ubuntu-offtopic for chat04:17
UbbyCDim on topic04:18
raVenso kernel is like the system32 of windows?04:18
HuufartedUbbyCD: /join #firefox04:18
tritiumUbbyCD: no, you are not04:18
musikgoat|maingasull: hmm then something else is it up,  change your du command to /var  instead of /04:18
Ashfire908raVen, no.04:18
psywipedhehe one more user for my ignore list04:18
FlannelAshfire908: er, 2.24.104:18
musikgoat|maingasull: and work your way down to determine what sub directory is the culprit04:18
HuufartedraVen: it's way lower level than that, but you've got the idea.  :)04:18
WTFsure--I got a question, everytime I download wubi  to install ubuntu, it downloads ubuntu 8.10 -64 bits, and gives me no chance to choose another one, I want a wubi-like program to download and install ubuntu 8.04 -32bits?? from windows xp,  thanks for help.04:19
ndshackerhello there, my ubuntu installation seems to be broken ;( I cna boot into single mode, but not regular04:19
HuufartedraVen: when you install these updates you're doing now, it will require a reboot because one of those updates will be the kernel, being the first time you've updated since installation04:19
quantumkennyUbutntu 9.04 beta: compiz: missing transparency effeccts on all windows.  everything else in compiz works great.  any ideas?04:19

bazhang!ppagpg > ariqs04:22
ubottuariqs, please see my private message04:22
ndshackerhuufarted: then id use tar04:22
HuufartedraVen: You're correct.  Linux requires a lot of knowledge to really master (far more than I've got) but requires virtually none to be an end-user of.04:23
WTFsure--isnt there a direct download for wubi-8.04-32bits?04:23
musikgoat|mainHuufarted: rsync is great for making mirrors, but most people aren't looking to back that up, they want to backup the OS04:23
ndshackeryes thereis04:23
ndshackercheck the sourceforge page04:23
psywipedwtf no you chose it inside of wubi04:23
santihhhiiiii04:23

psywipedwtf just make a 30gig partiton on your hdd and install it there04:24
raVenoops..that's "sorry musikgoat"04:24
gasullLast questions guys: I still use Ubuntu 8.04.  Is it worth the headache to upgrade to the latest one?  It wouldn't be the first time I screw up my system in the upgrade the the latest Ubuntu, and I end up doing a clean install :-)04:24
musikgoat|mainno worries04:24
WTFsure--hp bruto mas obio no pues weon04:24
psywipedgasull that upgrade has no issues just do it04:25
musikgoat|maingasull: upgrades can be troublesome sometimes, but mostly, 8.04 -> 8.10 is painless04:25
ndshackergasull: stick with 8.0404:25
ndshackerits an LTS04:25
Huufartedndshacker: doesn't 8.10 become LTS when 9.04 hits?04:25
WTFsure--ofc it does04:25
FlannelHuufarted: No.04:25
UbbyCDI tried to lighten the atmosphere with a something I saw as being funny but who cares I didnt realize this room was so uptight.. I seriously want to know if all those popups that happened without me asking was some kind of exploit in Firefox and if it is fixable04:25
gasullndshacker: Yeah, that's why I'm still w/ 8.404:25
psywipedthats only a good thing in a corprate viro04:25
HuufartedFlannel: what determines if a version is LTS or not/04:25
gasull(I meant 8.04)04:25
ndshackerhuufarted: no04:25
WTFsure--ofc it does04:25
raVenpsywiped: oh...well..if i have time..il check on it..il get to know ubuntu 1st....Huufarted: yeah..i first heard of linux at my school. coz  our school made its own version of linux..its called Lorma Linux04:25
FlannelHuufarted: Theyre decided beforehand.  6.06 is LTS, 8.04 is LTS, 10.04 will be the next one.04:26
musikgoat|maincanonical decides,  usually every 3rd release04:26
Flannelmusikgoat|main: fourth04:26
musikgoat|mainor 4th?04:26
ndshackerevery fourth i think04:26
HuufartedFlannel: understood.  Why are some LTS?04:26
psywiped4th]04:26

psywipedhuuf for corprate viros04:26
Huufartedpsywiped: viros?04:27
FlannelHuufarted: Because some people don't want to upgrade every few months.  LTS allows you to upgrade once every few years.04:27
psywipedenviroments04:27
RopechoborraUbbyCD,  and why are so many non LTS instead of a few LTS ?04:27
HuufartedFlannel: gotcha04:27

gartralum, is there a way too look at active memory, and get a live map of the alignments?04:28
UbbyCDnon lts versions are basically so they can give you the cutting edge without wholly commiting to it04:28
musikgoat|mainWTFsure--: if it was private, why announce it in a channel, open a pm04:28
psywipedor yahoo if your into that sort of thing04:28

UbbyCDyou send me dirty pictures psywiped04:30
psywipedblack have your tried google?04:30
HuufartedFlannel: it's on-topic, IMO.  If there's a valid enough reason for 8.04 over 8.10, it may be beneficial to downgrade04:30

psywipedi like the links more04:34
savvasmountainma1: are you using ubuntu 9.04?04:34
HuufartedFlannel: I dont' know why...  but I love that program.  it makes Ubuntu that much more useful.  And 'irssi'04:34
psywipedno04:34
raVenhuufarted...may i know what program is that04:34
FlannelHuufarted, psywiped: Please take offtopic things elsewhere.  This channel is for Ubuntu support.  "Go google it" (or whatever search engine you prefer) is not proper support.04:34
mountainma1savvas - no, hardy heron i think...unless it was updating to 9.0404:35
UbbyCDthey have been helping people too04:35
HuufartedraVen: w3m is a command line interface (otherwise known as CLI) web browser.  'irssi' is an IRC client, kinda like you're probably using XChat right now.04:35
psywipedraven w3m is a text web browser for command line and irssi is a irc program04:35
savvasmountainma1: well it doesn't by default, did you click to upgrade to a new release?04:35
Heimarkanyone have suggestions for games I can install for my 7 year old sister on Kubuntu?04:35

Pollywogwell I guess it will be a reinstall :(04:36
musikgoat|mainraVen: its called highlight04:37
savvasmountainma1: when you boot you are prompted with several kernel options, did you try "recovery console" ?04:37
psywipedraven thats because i type your name at the start of the the message04:37
HuufartedraVen: you've got it.  Here's another tip in Ubuntu Command line and IRC.  Start typing a name and press Tab and it will auto-complete it04:37
HeimarkHuufarted: thank you04:37
HuufartedraVen: tab at the command line will auto-complete filenames and directories.  Comes in VERY handy04:37
psywipedHuufarted thanks i didnt know that04:37
raVenHuufarted: WTF! i was manually typing your name guys T_T now i know....04:37

jebdmHi--I'm having difficulty mounting some new partitions I created.  I'm working on installing Arch Linux, and I created several new partitions for it.  I ran the Arch live CD and installed, and everything seemed to go fine.  Now I'm trying to mount my new partitions under Ubuntu.  I haven't added them to my fstab.  The problem is that running "sudo mount /mount/arch /dev/sda7" results in "mount: /mount/arch is not a block device".  "sudo fsck /dev/sda7" says that 05:42
psychicnch has one05:42

ErasmusmM94: lol im just reinstalling everytime05:43

jebdmnope, doesn't show up05:47
mM94Erasmus, you have to add a line to your xorg file05:47
him89type in sudo mount /dev/sdxy /media/sdxy05:48
Erasmusk05:48
jebdm@him89 it's not listed under mount, but mount does list everything i would expect05:48
him89x is the hard disk number and y is partition number05:48
him89and the /media/sdxy should exist05:48
jebdm@him89 nope, it doesn't work, that was my problem05:49

him89what it says?05:49
jebdm@him89 I did try to mount it under a different directory, though (/mount/arch/, which does exist).  Should that make a difference?05:49
him89you need to have a dir name /media/arch05:49
him89or it wont work05:49
him89type in mkdir /media/arch05:50
him89and then the mount05:50
jebdm@him89 I did, but for some reason mounting it under media seems to work05:50
him89do a chmod 0777 /mount as root05:50
NithrinWhat do I type in the command line to see what the code names for my programs are?05:50

=== Kwitschibo_ is now known as Kwitschibo
zirodayalmark1: I don't think you can. Best bet is to ask the buzztard developers how to fix it06:40
psychicsorry how do i get to that edit thing?06:40
marshall007him89_: windows start in the correct positions, however often times the default (and non resizable windows) end up either being cut off on the top or bottom06:40
almark1ziroday: is this an issue on other distros too.06:40
lstarnespsychic: try gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list06:41
him89_marshall007, what windows are they usually06:41
zirodayalmark1: I would presume so, unless the distro's still use older version of gnome with gnome-vfs06:41
almark1ziroday: this program is really hard to compile, a real pain06:41
him89_that are cut off?06:41
the10nitrohow can I turn a relative address into a absolute address in the shell?06:41
slack_baphometanyone know of what sega emulators there are for amd64 ?06:41
zirodayPerryArmstrong: hmm, I have no idea. sorry06:41
zirodayalmark1: unfortunately I don't know enough about gvfs and gnome-vfs to help you more06:41
PerryArmstrongziroday; will a new install solve this problem;06:41
marshall007him89_: a couple examples that i have noticed would be the compiz preferances and evolution mail setup06:41
him89_the10nitro, what address?06:41
almark1ziroday: I noticed that they buzztard has pre compiled pkgs for open-suse and RPM's as well, but that isn't a deb file.06:42
zirodayPerryArmstrong: if it works on a livecd then yes06:42
him89_well you cannot change them, since they are un-resizable06:42
almark1ziroday: though I'm not a developer just a compiler, I don't know what I need, I just know when i need it.06:42
him89_marshall007, there is no such workaround i know of to get this done06:42
the10nitrohim89_: like ./some_file -> /home/the10nitro/some_file06:42
the10nitrofilename, rather06:43
him89_the10nitro, you want it auto change or something?06:43
marshall007him89_: alright, thanks i was hoping there might be a way to force windows to not be over a specific length and instead use scrollbars but i guess not06:43
PerryArmstrongziroday; it didnt work on the live cd...and the surprising fact is i installed with the same live cd on my friends lappy and it installed perfectly with no resolution problems06:43
the10nitroI have a script that will not work with relative addresses06:43
psychici got my source list but its blank06:43
him89_you will have to change the script and define the relative functions in it06:44

luqmanghindo, maybe he should download the samba package onto his desktop and then transfer it to a USB drive07:54
luqmanand then on to the machine that has no internet07:55
PerryArmstronghim89; there??07:55
eternalhmm07:55
psywipedluqman why whould that help if he doesnt have a ip address?07:55
him89PerryArmstrong, yes i am here07:55
ghindoluqman: He isn't really asking about Samba07:55
PerryArmstronghim 89; i restarted but to no effect..wait my system is asking me restart again...i'll do that and then get back to you07:56
HawkLionwhat is Samba?07:56
ghindo!samba | HawkLion07:56
ubottuHawkLion: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and http://help.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.07:56
luqmanmaybe we have language miscommunication. because you say he has no internet but he is on internet. it is strange that he is trying to get onto a 'microsoft' network if he is unable to get a local ip address.07:56
him89PerryArmstrong, sure np07:56
luqmanbecause first priority is getting a ip address for local computer...07:56
psywipedluqman OR HE HAS 2 COMPUTERS07:56
ghindoluqman: He's using another laptop to chat with us now07:56
HawkLionAh...my desktop has Ubuntu completely installed on it.07:57
eternalcan't be on internet with no ip07:57
HawkLionI have a Motorola modem to a Linksys Wireless router...thus, my internet connection on my laptop right now.07:57
luqmanoh ok, my bad, i was thinking something different. i assume because he was on here that he had internets on that computer and wanted samba....07:57
psywipedHawkLion what do you get back for ifconfig -a ?07:58
luqmanso your linksys router doesnt give an IP address to your computer, is it hard wired or wireless?07:58
ghindoHawkLion: Also, if we are unable to help you here today, try your luck on the Ubuntu forums07:58
psywipedluqman were not even sure right now if ubuntu is seeing his nic07:58

Alex_i have also tried choosing to run ubuntu directly of cd , same result08:07
luqmanHawkLion: then you need to figure out what type of card you have in your machine and then manually install the drivers. you'll need to see if you can find a debian package for the device and get that package on to the system somehow (usb)08:08

PerryArmstrongikonia; see my pm08:18
ikoniaNatilous: have a look at apt-mirror08:18
Qriusdebia:  Not sure how I'd identify the two zombie tasks.  Everything in System Monitor is sleeping.  Brother is the brand name of the inkjet printer I'm trying to install.08:18
Qriusdebia: The only task that continuously uses CPU is compis.real08:19
mib_oygbxjhow comei went to #ubuntu--proxy--users08:19
Natilousikonia: I use it but apt-mirror can't delete unuseful files ! the partition of mirror is limit.08:20
ikoniamib_oygbxj: you're using a proxy ?08:20
Flannelmib_oygbxj: Because you're on mibbit.08:20
ikoniaNatilous: rats, ok then use rsync with the --exclude option08:20
Qriusdebia: ...besides Pidgin and System Monitor, that is.08:20
mib_oygbxjis it ok to mibbit?08:20
debiaQrius, package manager is synpatic right ? running ubuntu or kubuntu ?08:21

HawkLionpsywiped:  restarting now08:24
ikoniaHawkLion: if you do an "lspci" you'll see the chipset08:24
Qriusdebia: I'm not sure if this is the synaptic package manager.  The recent security update took a bit of time, but it installed OK.  I force quit this several times but when I re-try, it asks if I want to re-install.  The latest flash player does the same hang.08:24
PerryArmstrongikonia; my synaptic says that my network is not configured correctly but still i get my internet.08:24
stevendcok ubuntu rocks realy great but why is the driver for a 3d card never good enough?08:25
ikoniastevendc: because that is nothing to do with linux - ask your hardware vendor08:25
stevendcthats the only one thing i need to search for08:25
Natilousikonia: because the packages are in Packages.list files and apt select any package from a folder !!08:25
ikoniaPerryArmstrong: check things like your sources.list are fine08:25
debiaikonia: Chipset is VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6105/VT6106S [Rhine-III] (rev 86)08:25
HawkLionah...so that's why debia wanted me to lspci...08:25
ikoniaNatilous: you can edit Packages.list once you've mirrored08:26
debiaHawkLion: One more paste for me pls, this time: lshw -C network08:26
HawkLionikonia:  but I don't get it...Ethernet controller:  VIA Technologies, Inc.  VT6105/VT6106S  [Rhine III] (rev 86)08:26

Guest71666server film emule10:00
psywipedlinky0ne maby on a dedicated system but not on user systems10:00

linky0neit will be a dedicated file server10:00
mythcan the virtualbox 2.14 edition and the ose 2.0 edition exits the same time ?10:00
linky0nei just purchased an intel server grade board for this system10:01
psywipedlinky0ne im a little supprised that it doesnt have onboard raid510:01
debiaPerryArmstrong: the 2nd Screen section has more info than first, so can u delete the first ? (from Section "Screen" until EndSection)10:01
mythcan the virtualbox 2.14 edition and the ose 2.0 edition exits the same time ?10:01
Chrom_Can someone give me a clue on uninstalling virtualbox properly? I removed it with apt-get uninstall virtualbox* --purge, but even if the software is gone, at startup I still have the kernel trying to load a module and failing to do so, and I still have users and groups generated by the vbox installer.10:01

debiaPerryArmstrong: I mean Section "Device" and Section "Monitor"10:02
Auslegungghindo, quick question, after doing the dd there's nothing on my usb drive.  Why is that?10:02
myth can the virtualbox 2.14 edition and the ose 2.0 edition exits in a computer the same time ?10:02
riomyth: yes10:03
psywipedlinky0ne yes because it is set up as one drive before the os loads10:03
psywipedum wait10:04
psywipedlinky0ne you mean if the card breaks?10:04
linky0neexactly10:04
mythrio,i get the ose editon from the apt-get,  and the 2.14 edition from the webdite10:04
ghindoAuslegung: Wait, I thought you said that you had got the image onto the USB drive?10:04
linky0nei know sw, you can re-import cause raid info is stored on all drives10:04
PerryArmstrongdebia; done i think even InputDevice is also repeated10:05
psywipedlinky0ne im not sure i guess it depends on how it tells the raid setup10:05
linky0nei am nervous that hw raid is proprietary10:05
debiaPerryArmstrong: InputDevice is repeated only for "wacom" a few times, the kbd and mouse should be there10:05
PerryArmstrongdebia; i actually copied the second part of code fromubuntuforums...which one of friends provided me10:05
Auslegungghindo well, I ran the code and didn't check in the USB, I assumed it worked10:05
PerryArmstrongdebia; ok..now whats to be done....10:05
psywipedlinky0ne yea cause the windows implamntation totaly isnt10:06
debiaPerryArmstrong: wait. InputDevice is not repeated10:06
ghindoAuslegung: I thought you had mentioned that the USB drive was empty to begin with?10:06
PerryArmstrongdebia; there are 2 input devices..but the identifiers are different10:06
Auslegungghindo yeah, it was, and it still is10:06
debiaPerryArmstrong: only the Screen, Monitor and Device has duplicate. pls backup ur xorg.conf first. then edit xorg.conf as root remove duplicate sections and save and exit10:07
linky0nepsywiped - ok, well thanks for clearing that up, now im off to find 2TB extra of storage! thanks again!10:07
ghindoAuslegung: Hm.  Have you tried viewing hidden files or booting from the USB drive?10:07
debiaPerryArmstrong: second set in the duplicates has more detail, so I suggest remove the first one for each10:07
PerryArmstrongdebia; i have done that as you said before10:08
Auslegungghindo, yeah, both, and there's nothing there.  When booting from it says cannot locate file Linux or something to that effect10:08

grawityrakan: You still can use public key auth as long as the server lets you... Two questions. 1) Do you get a shell (bash/sh/zsh/whatever) after connecting? 2) What type of server is it? (I guess OpenSSH)12:11
