almark1Hello I am look for jackd version 0.116.x from Hardy repos, how can I upgrade to this version?00:01
glitsj16hello evryone00:02
tnuichi im trying to install ubuntu via wubi, but after i reboot i get a live session00:02
doleybtnuic: you have a cd in?00:02
tnuicdoleyb: no00:02
almark1The version I have is jackdmp 0.71, but I need jackd version 0.116 is this in repos somewhere built?00:02
rvnhow do you set up kernel level VM on ubuntu 8.1000:03
rvnwhat do you install to use it00:03
tnuicdoleyb: i had this same problem last time, but i dont remember how i solved00:03
KiRiLoStnuic, try booting without hitting any button when it says "Hit any key to boot from cd" or try booting with the harddrive as the first boot option00:03
tnuicKiRiLoS: im not booting from a cd00:04
tnuicKiRiLoS: i installed and then removed the cd from the drive00:04
KiRiLoStnuic, and then how it's a live session?00:05
KiRiLoStnuic, in the right upper corner does it says ur username or live session user?00:05
glitsj16almark1: jackd 0.116.x is in the jaunty repositories ... are you on ubuntu intrepid ?00:05
tnuicKiRiLoS: thats the big mistery =D  ... after i boot it shows me the option to choose the location and then tried to load the gparted00:06
tchoughdoes anyone know if there is any nfs uid mapping options that work under ubuntu that do not involve setting up NIS?00:06
coreycan I increase the size of / ?00:06
tnuicKiRiLoS: but gparted doesnt show anything so i cancel it00:06
Newbeegood beye00:06
tnuicKiRiLoS: live session user00:06
KiRiLoScorey, yes you can,boot with a live cd and then go to the Partition Editor(Gparted) from there you can00:06
almark1glitsj16: no Hardy00:06
glitsj16corey: sure, use a partition editor (like gparted)00:06
rvnhow do you set up kernel level VM on ubuntu 8.1000:06
rvnwhat do you install to use it00:07
DasEi corey: yes, if you got space in front or behind the current /00:07
coreycan it be done with out a live cd?00:07
KiRiLoStnuic, are you sure that the install was done?Does the GRUB(boot manager)shows you the distro when u boot up ur pc ?00:07
almark1glitsj16: would just compiling it be a lot easier than updating with 8.10 repo?00:07
DasEicorey: hardly, as the fs mussn't be mounted at partitioning00:08
coreyOk thanks any way00:08
burak575_hi i was remembering a program witch automaticly downloads and installs dependent packages while building software, is anybody know its name ?00:08
tnuicKiRiLoS: i choose ubuntu over vista at the windows boot loader and then ubuntu loads00:08
glitsj16almark1: looks like you're best bet yes00:08
DasEiburak575_: checkinstall ?00:09
KiRiLoStnuic, lol i gotta say that a weird issue you havin :P00:09
ajayi would like to know how to install the extra themes for getting the cube effect on ubuntu \00:09
burak575_maybe i will try it :)00:09
Stupendoussteveajay: That is done with compiz00:09
almark1glitsj16: nod and thanks00:09
KiRiLoStnuic, you installed through wubi or a regular install?00:09
glitsj16almark1: you're welcome00:10
ajayStupendoussteve, I have compiz installed but I remember there was the option that you could change in Extra to get the cube effect on00:10
ajayStupendoussteve, I just see Extra but not the option to change it00:10
tnuicKiRiLoS: Wubi, i downloaded the iso from ubuntu site and opened it in windows, then chose install in windows00:10
Stupendoussteveajay: The compiz-manager can configure it00:10

ubottuajay: Compiz (compositing window manager), for a howto see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager and more help #compiz-fusion00:10

rayluwow, that wasn't very helpful. do what Stupendoussteve said.00:11
DasEiburak575_: dpkg-deb -I <file>   shows you the deps00:11
glitsj16burak575_: if you're going to use checkinstall, you might be interested in reading http://renatoram.wordpress.com/2007/05/03/checkinstall-for-gnome-packets/ to save you some hassle00:11
tnuicKiRiLoS: last time i installed i had the same problem, i just reinstalled and it somehow solved.... this time i tried installing twice and not working00:11
KiRiLoStnuic, would you mind reinstalling?or getting some1 else to help you out?I just dont know the answer to your problem,sorry :/00:11
tnuicKiRiLoS: thanks for your time =D ... i'll try reinstalling it again...00:12
oinsHi. Can anyone help me with the RaLink2860 WLAN chip? I compiled the module without any errors, but now iwconfig doesn't show any wlan device.00:12
burak575_it was a program like i will say make install like and it auto downloads and installs dependend packages like, while building tux racer it automaticly installs opengl libs with single command00:12
Stupendoussteveajay: er, that is ccsm that configures it00:12
KiRiLoStnuic, try install wubi program first,google it.Then move the iso to a folder named ubuntu-backup in your c:(So you dont have to donwnload it all over again)00:12
glitsj16burak575_: hmm, that doesn't sound like checkinstall00:12
demmonwhat was the command to install a deb file with terminal00:13
KiRiLoStnuic, proceed with the installation and i hope it get's fixed :/00:13
Stupendoussteveburak575_: Sounds like ports, in BSD00:13
tnuicKiRiLoS: i have a cd burned =D00:13
DasEidemmon: sudo dpkg -i file.deb00:13
rayluoins: modprobe the module00:13
oinsraylu: did this. and it's loaded (lsmod). But nothing happens.00:14
burak575_hmm i think i found it, it is auto-apt with checkinstall00:14
burak575_i will try it now00:14
demmonDasEi: thanks cuz i cant install deb files anymore with double cklick they are crushing on me dunno why00:15

almark1raylu: I don't want them removed that is, I just want one pkg removed, how do I do that?00:33
glitsj16StevenX: i believe synaptic has a preferences setting (under the "distribution" tab) to prioritize the highest available version, not sure though00:33

StevenXglitsj16, I am using the command line. Any way to do it through there? Both packages have the name "keepassx".00:33

epaphusHey guys, I have my machine unbootable.. with an error code 15 when it enters the bootloader....   what is the recommended procedure for this?00:36
mrsteveman1unless they specifically removed the ability to pass a higher number to the kernel when the module loads, or made it compiled in00:37
almark1raylu: Yeah, they do, but is there a way to just remove one package? And then I'll install or compile a newer jackd?00:37
glitsj16StevenX: you might be able to set that in /etc/apt/apt.conf00:37
filo1234epaphus: you have wron UUID or /dev root on menu.lst maybe00:38
epaphusfilo1234, is this related to a raid config?00:38
raylualmark1: hehehe.00:38
almark1raylu: hehehe hmm.?00:38
raylualmark1: the proper way to do this is to roll your own deb of jackd00:38
filo1234epaphus: is possible00:38

noodlesgcLenin_Cat you shouldn't really change to ext4 until jaunty00:39
almark1raylu: no no I have jackd from apt-get and I just compiled a newer one in /usr/local/bin00:40
raylualmark1: another unrecommended way is to use dpkg to uninstall jackd and force it to ignore depencies00:40
raylualmark1: but really, you should build your own proper deb of the new jackd00:40

Manny2218Hey well i have a problem - I installed Ubuntu - But I forgot to install Grub, So now when I turn on my computer, Grub loads, Says "error 18" and then just sits there. I'm running off a Live CD at the moment, what can I do to fix Grub?00:54
zcat[1]ubuntu-restricted-extras is a convenient metapackage for people who don't really want to figure things out and just want everything to damn-well work!00:54
Flannelmarqueed: that's odd.  apt-get doesn't depend on python.00:54
epaphusfilo1234, lets just suppose for a minute I prefer reinstalling the grub bootloader from scratch with the CD.. i would have to give it the mount points..  how would I Know them?00:54
zcat[1]Yes, it does install a lot ;)00:55

marqueedthe problem was pretty much version-agnostic, i think01:02
zcat[1]menu.lst, bugger it. Trying to do too many things at once01:03
Jay555ubuntustudent: o i just said screw it, now im 100% ubuntu.01:03
marqueedi had to install 2.5 from source, and then set those binaries and library prefixes in place of what apt expects, and then reinstall from there01:03
UbuntuStudentJay555: Hope it works out! Family fine with it?01:03
filo1234epaphus: live cd run on ram, and you can use it like a normal desktop install01:03

Manny2218But i already had windows Installed, i forgot to set up Grub during the Ubuntu installation. Now when i turn my computer on, Grub just says "error 18"01:04
UbuntuStudentLol, my bro has to :p01:04
Roastedwhos a genius with hard drive partitions? I dont understand something with linux here. I was trying to push an image to a 40gb drive and it errored out and said "Can't have partition outside the disk!" I booted to GParted and the disk was unallocated. So I thought, hmm, maybe if I create a new partition? So I went to create a new partition and I got a warning "Doing this will erase all of the data on the disk." I hit create. But afte01:04
Roastedr I hit create, the disk was still 100% unallocated. If I hit "new" again, THEN I could choose the type of partition. I chose not to and rebooted and now my image works fine.01:04
RoastedWhat is it about that message I got in gparted to create a new partition when it was still 100% unallocated that suddenly made the disk work??01:04
UbuntuStudentmy mom dont use it, my dad uses sisters laptop, and both sisters hav laptop, so bro will have to learn :p @Jay55501:04
brandon_does any know how to put Visualizations on Amarok01:04
Jay555ubuntustudent: haha, u got a big family! yeah but my wireless card isnt supported :( so i have to plug it in01:05
rwwRoasted: the "Doing this will erase all of the data on the disk" message comes up when you're making a new partition table / label, not a new partition.01:05
Jay555and all my jacks are phone01:05

Roastedrww - Do you know how the hard drive erased the partition table?01:05

Roastedrww - when you install say, windows XP, does it create a partition table + partition when you install it? Is the same true with Ubuntu? Maybe that's why I never ran into it before.01:07
Jay555ubuntustudent: then again i know nothing of the pc gaming world01:07

zcat[1]Roasted, windows just hides a lot of the technical stuff; under the hood it's doing a lot of the same things01:07
Jay555ubuntustudent: o silly me. yes that sux. just buy a 360! what games do u play anyway? (and mac got cod!)01:08
Roastedhmm, that makes sense. I didn't realize there was a partition TABLE that was created before the partition. I thought maybe that was tacked in WITH the actual partition itself. But, ahh, I know what to look for now!01:09

alevinebruce89, i'll ask again in ubuntu+102:43
bruce89PCTeacher012: I meant the second part02:44
ibeekmanConfuz: It's the way it is spliced.  A normal cat5 preserves 1:1 mapping if you will, whereas with a crossover cable at least 1 wire enters in one position and is connected to a different position on the other side02:44
racecar56any open source emulators that can boot off SATA hard drives?02:44

tuxFanjust reinstall amsn if you are in jaunty02:45

gek_onthei like it02:46
alex_what is :  Tcl/Tk 8.4 ? it says  need it to instal aMSN02:46
TheFunkbombQuick question.  How is PCMCIA support in Ubuntu?  I have one that I've never used.  Looking for a new wireless card but don't want to make the plunge until I find out02:46
PCTeacher012gek_onthe: That is a choice, Xubuntu would not install for me lol02:46
bruce89racecar56: that also makes no sense02:46
YixilTesiphonTheFunkbomb: what's your wireless card?02:46
racecar56bruce89, it always seemed what wine had weird problems with the menus in XFCE02:46
thecommutistalex_: it's a scripting language02:46
YixilTesiphonthere seem to be at least workarounds for most anything online02:46
the_engineerThe Comunist I have been able to find "Settings>SettingsManager>Autostarted Apps" But not "System>Preferences"  As I don't use the Ubuntu GUI anymore i'm using XFCE from Xubuntu02:46
gek_ontheit is you opion ...02:46
TheFunkbombYixilTesiphon, I don't have one yet.  I'm looking for an Atheros chipset.02:46
ibeekmanConfuz: so if you make your own ethernet cables you have some spool of cat5 wire and then you cut it and crimp on the plastic parts that connect to the jack.  The only difference between a crossover cable and a normal cable is the way the wire is spliced into the plastic end pieces: both types of wire will plug into ethernet jacks and look essentially the same.02:47
gek_onthexubuntu is better02:47
bruce89racecar56: I see02:47

TheFunkbombYixilTesiphon, is Atheros the card manufacturer or is that just the chipset?03:02
YixilTesiphonTheFunkbomb: I believe Atheros is a brandname of Broadcom's03:02
YixilTesiphonit's in an HP dv7 1245dx03:02
mneptokYixilTesiphon: incorrect03:02
TheFunkbombBroadcom makes their own chips03:02

alex_Surely if I could mount it last night, it should be fine after a restart?03:10
bruce89mattycoze: what sort of thing03:11
mneptokthe_engineer: what's the issue with Transmission?03:11
alex_i like deluge better than transmission!03:11
the_engineerthe commutist: its not out of the question, and something i'd thought about but the folks over in #transmission tell me that it has no autostart function in and of itself so I wanted to track down whatever call was making it autostart03:11
the_engineermneptok: it is autostarting and I need it to wait to startup until i tell it to03:12

PCTeacher0126more. quick, mneptok: I dont see settings03:19
alex_last time... any reason I can't mount a LVM volume? I get a "ext3 fs not found" or similar error...03:19
mneptokthe_engineer: then there is nothing obviously named "transmission" in init.d but that does not mean init is not starting Transmission03:19
timClicks3Spence_ did that answer your question?03:19
mneptokthe_engineer: try "sudo dpkg -R transmission"03:19
mneptokthe_engineer: that should get you the sane defaults03:20
Spence_they arent two different operating systems?03:20

jduXcell, sorry missread question03:27
bruce89[noobie]: yes?03:28
the_engineermneptok: the CLI is telling me that --reconfigure or -R are not valid options.  dpkg --help isn't showing me anything about reconfiguring either03:28
ibeekmanXcell: will this reconfigure xserver-xorg automatically?  I am having some graphics issues, might this help03:28
XcellDepends on the problem03:29
ibeekmanerrr well basically I can't see certain types of video using the open source driver03:29

glitsj16into the system and how they interact with the computer (e.g. which keyboard and mouse they use)03:30
Xcellibeekman--  usually, turn off all graphics eye candy (visual effects)..re-install drivers..make sure they are up and running then resume eye candy.03:31
ibeekmanXcell: so using mplayer to play avi, mp4, mpeg, etc. won't work even though I have the codecs.  Also skype video craps out, but not ekiga03:32

ibeekmanhmmm I'll give that a shot, I haven't installed any packages for fancy eye candy just wobly windows etc. that comes straight out of the box....03:32
Xcellgive it a shot03:33
ibeekmank thanks03:33
ibeekman(I'll probably be back though)03:33
Xcellibeekman--  usually, you install all extras and get them up and stable...then do the fancy graphics thing03:33

eseven73ryan you mean fusion-icon?04:02
nikitishow much harddrive space does 9.04 need for a basic install?04:02
tommi69bruce89: "internal error: couldn't generate list of packages to download" - UGH.04:03
ryan_No, Someone helped me trouble shoot a problem with flash player... and it was with compiz running it was screwing up, he told me to download compiz-switch. I said it's not in my synaptic package manager, and he sent a screeny with it in his04:03
bruce89tommi69: wow, that's nice04:03
ryan_And he has no idea why it wouldn't be04:03
nikitisanyone know?04:03
ryan_It's supposed to just be an applet to quickly turn compiz on or off04:03
eseven73yes ryan that is fusion-icon04:03
tommi69bruce89: i *hope* i won't have to reinstall, but it seriously looks PFU04:04
eseven73!info fusion-icon04:04
ubottufusion-icon (source: fusion-icon): tray icon to launch and manage Compiz Fusion. In component universe, is extra. Version 0.1.0-1 (intrepid), package size 29 kB, installed size 264 kB04:04
tommi69ryan_: i think compiz-switch is an outdated program to switch on/off compiz effects04:04
bruce89tommi69: I'm afraid it looks likely04:04
tommi69ryan_: you can achieve the same by going to system -> preferencies -> appearance04:04
the_engineerlol@ tommi69: not to make light of your plight but if PFU stands for what I think it stands for, thats a great acronym.  And the first time i've seen it used as such.04:05
tommi69ryan_: in the appearance window there shuld be a 'special effects' tab from where you can switch off effects04:05
tEkyvinyaa, have you tried using just musescore and nothing else?04:05

usseradmin_masu3701, since you dont have to actually implement the commands you can say that they do this and that without bothering if its actually possible in real life, hell half of HTML standard is done this way04:29

edogzillatommi 69, but keep in mind that i'm actually using the cd right now, not my install, cuz its the only way I can get a desktop to get onto chat cuz i dont know how to do anything from just the command line04:30

AerodynamicSame here.04:32
tommi69edogzilla: i know04:33
ubuntu21Now that Nexuiz 2.5 has been released, is there an expected date for it to appear in the repos?04:33
edogzillatommi 69, if you will be around a while we could do it that way04:33
tommi69edogzilla: unfortunately it's 5.30am and i seriously need to sleep :)04:33

usserubuntu21, its not gonna make it into the repos. it probably wont even be in jaunty its too late for that04:33
edogzillatommi 69, any ideas?04:33
tommi69edogzilla: login in the faulty system, do that 'runlevel' command and see if it still responds '2'04:33
ubuntu21usser: why would it be too late for repos? Repos actually freeze? Why?04:34
edogzillatommi 69: and if it does...or doesnt?04:34
ubuntu21What's the point of that?04:34
tommi69edogzilla: runlevel 2 usually means 'login graphically' (not exact but for clarity sake..)04:34
tommi69edogzilla: if you log in in the console, no graphics, it usually means you are in runlevel 104:34
JosephDWhenever I start up my laptop, it goes to the login screen fine, but when I login it just stays that basic offwhite color and I can't do anything.04:35
usserubuntu21, yea, the freeze usually happens around beta release after that point only security updates are allowed into repositories, 2.5 is a major upgrade theres no way it'll make it04:35
admin_masu3701usser: when the message get splitted in 2 parts and send to 2 different peers, should the 2 parts of the message include headers?04:35
tommi69edogzilla: so, if you get a runlevel 1 response you just have to switch back to runlevel 2 to get graphical login04:35

usseradmin_masu3701, its up to you. its probably easier to have them both have headers, since it'll be easy to reassemble04:36
tommi69edogzilla: you type 'runlevel' and hope it's 1 then come back here and ask around how to change it to runlevel 204:36
ubuntu21usser: Nope. not there.04:36
zombie-robo1thank you04:36

tommi69edogzilla: listen to Flannel i used to modify a file to solve this but it doesn't work anymore in ubuntu (/etc/inittab), maybe Flannel knows more04:37
edogzillatommi 69: whats init 2?04:37
usseradmin_masu3701, make sure you do some sort of integrity check, hash the message or something, and then check if the hash is correct after reassembly, a good protocol should do that04:37
TecROchow do you connect to a access point by the terminal?04:37
tommi69edogzilla: init is that runlevel thing i told you about - if 1 start at console, if 2 start with gui04:38
edogzillatommi 69: so in other words...If I type init 2 in the command line if i am on runlevel 2, then it will switch me to runlevel 2?04:39
tommi69edogzilla: really need to go, try to get as much information as possible and come back here somebody will help04:39
dxdemetriouhow can I empty trash if permission is denied and the ~/.local/Share/Trash is empty?04:39

edogzillaflannel: aha. thanks. and after i get to runlevel 2 is the change permanent or will i have to do that every time i start my comp?04:40

epaphushi guys..  grub does not boot into ubuntu because its giving a error code 15...   when I boot with the live cd..  I do find /boot/grub/stage1 .. it returns the same error.. if i do: find /grub/stage1 ... that also returns the same error.. what are my options? why would this be like this on a good working install?04:41
tommi69Flannel: if you can see if you can point edogzilla to a solution i must leave04:41

Firefishethanks, Flannel04:43

Flanneljosh890: Be sure update-manager isn't running (or anything else) with ps aux, and then, if you're absolutely sure, you'll have to manually delete the lock file.04:43
edogzillaflannel: unfortunately not. i am running from the cd right now cuz its the only way i could use the comp, cuz i dont know what to do with that command line04:44

adam7smacfarl: the data got corrupted during the transfer?04:45
Flanneledogzilla: alright.  That's fine, I've got a while.  What I want you to do is reboot, hit escape a few times after the POST screen (you should see something that says 'press ESC to view the GRUB menu' or something like that) once you get there, jot down what menu choices you have.  Try to choose one that doesn't say "recovery mode" (and also, not memtest) and then also keep track of whatever errors it gives you.04:45

Antisochemattycoze, Ah, sorry.  Is a program for maintaining software source code, primarily.  A "Source Code Management" or "Version Control System".05:23
JosephDdanbhfive, it put my command up there on the terminal, but it won't do anything05:23
mattgyver83Aero, what happens if you click on Emerald Theme Manager icon in the menu?05:23
mattgyver83Im wondering if its installed.05:23
pHreaksYcle1thrillERboy: get the name of that applet and sudo apt-get install "NAME OF IT"05:24
JosephDdanbhfive, oh, my mistake, must've been quite busy just without telling me05:24
mattycozethanks Antisoche; i'm using Bzr to install zeitgeist "bzr branch lp:gnome-zeitgeist"05:24
mattycozeso yeah05:24
Aerodynamicclicking on it in the tray nothing happens, clicking on it under System Tools nothing happens05:24
JosephDhaha I need to be a little more patient05:24
danbhfiveJosephD: so what happened?05:24
scuniziAntisoche: found it.. on the link it specifically mentions that you can either use onboard or add on video cards but not both concurrently.  http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&cc=de&lc=en&dlc=de05:24
mattgyver83Aero, you tryed clicking Emerald Theme Manager right?  Do you have it in your systems tools menu (i dont, im just curious)05:25
JosephDdanbhfive, it's still setting up alot of stuff, along with saying something about a user 'messagebus' already existing05:25
Antisochemattycoze, "CVS" is an old standby, meaning "Concurrent Versioning System", SubVersion (svn) is it's "more modern" replacement.  GIT isn't an acronym at all - it's just the name of the version that Linus Torvalds wrote, continuing his tradition of naming his software after himself...05:25
stealth-anyone ever ran a ventrilo server? Im wondering how good the performance is on a home connection05:25
AerodynamicIt's Compiz Fusion Icon under System Tools05:25
Antisochescunizi, Thanks, I guess.  :(05:25
AerodynamicI have it there..05:25
Aerodynamicbut.. when I click it05:25
mattycozeoh ok05:25
AerodynamicIt does nothing.05:25
epaphushey guys, is it true ubuntu isnt good when multiple partitions are being done?05:25
FloodBot1Aerodynamic: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:25
danbhfiveJosephD: yeah, so something clearly went wrong, with some sort of update or upgrade05:25
scuniziAntisoche: is the add in card dual head?05:25
stealth-epaphus: no05:25
AerodynamicOh, alright. Sorry05:26
Antisochescunizi, I guess I should have done more research first, but who would have thought?05:26
mattgyver83Aero, Okay.  Lets try reinstalling it, it might be a part of the menu by default but not included.05:26
Antisochescunizi, Nope.  it's probably the same d*mn card ...05:26
edogzillaflannel u still here?05:26
mattgyver83sudo apt-get install emerald05:26
stealth-epaphus: when you say "multiple partitions are being done" im assuming you mean spreading the installation over multiple partitions, right?05:26
scuniziAntisoche: sell it and get a card with dual output.. not that expensive05:26
epaphusstealth-, right05:26
JosephDdanbhfive, so this should fix it then?05:26
AerodynamicAlrighty, it should be installed.05:27
AerodynamicOh, emerald theme manager is there now.05:27
mattgyver83Thats good.05:27
AntisocheHey scunizi - ya wanna buy an Nvidia 8300 GS ???05:27
mattgyver83Select Emerald as your Window Decorator05:27
edogzillaflannel: are you still in here?05:27
stealth-epaphus: then there should be no difference. Some people split their installion into a partition for '/' and a partition for '/home/' so they can upgrade easier, though05:27
danbhfiveJosephD: well, stuff is being fixed  :P05:27
mattgyver83Aero, then click on 'Reload Window Decorator' in the menu05:27
thrillERboypHreaksYcle1, I want to know the name of the applent :/05:27
mattgyver83see if you still get the same problems.05:27
AerodynamicAh, seems to be fixed!05:27
epaphusstealth-, by default ubuntu intalls itself on a single partition.. and swap.. right?05:27
mattgyver83Awesome :D05:28
scuniziAntisoche: naw.. I got a motherboard with 3 outputs.. vga, DVI and hdmi05:28
* Antisoche sees it :(05:28
danbhfiveJosephD: when that is finished running, run this: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop^05:28
stealth-epaphus: to what i remember, yes05:28
AerodynamicThanks matt :P05:28
mattgyver83In hindsight, I think that GTK cant process themes for compiz as well as Emerald can05:28
mattgyver83not a problem, im amazed that i remembered that!!! its been a long time.05:28
pHreaksYcle1thrillERboy: google for the win dude. . .05:28
thrillERboythanks pHreaksYcle105:29
Aerodynamichehe, I just installed Ubuntu today. I'm loving it, just having a bit of a rough time getting used to it all.05:29
SuspectZeroi installed ubuntu with a /boot on /dev/sda10. then i installed windows 7 and i lost grub. when i booted into live ubuntu and tried grub-install /dev/sda i got an error saying /boot was not found. any ideas?05:29
pHreaksYcle1thrillERboy: haha, sure. if you want ill search it for you05:29
mattgyver83Aero, if you have any other problems dont hesitate to ask me.05:29
JosephDdanbhfive, alright, I'll let you know how that goes in jusssstt a second, it's still just zooming away on the screen =D05:29
epaphusdoes ubuntu make a partition for /boot .. or is it part of /..? by default that is05:29
AerodynamicAlrighty. Thanks again :)05:29
mattgyver83Im no wiz, but if your just getting started I can help you with a good amount05:29
danbhfiveJosephD: did you recently upgrade to 8.10 from 8.04 or something?05:30
thrillERboypHreaksYcle1, lemme try :)05:30
danbhfiveepaphus: part of /05:30
SuspectZeroi tried making /dev/sda10 bootable but that just gave me the no "operating system not found" error05:30
scuniziepaphus: by default it's part of /05:30
JosephDdanbhfive, no, 8.10 came with the laptop when I ordered it05:30

scuniziedogzilla: did you try flannel's suggestion and when you get to the terminal prompt type .. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop  ... ?  it has to be all lower case t owork05:32
edogzilladanhbfive: yes, and it did some updates and stuff. it also said that ubuntu desktop was already installed and made no changes. other than that evertyhing stayed the same05:33
edogzillawould a fresh install work?05:34
JosephDdanbhfive, the screen just went all black and the text disappeared and I have no idea whats going on hahaha05:34

ohzieI have a lot of network traffic from a box using port 57055 and I'm not getting much in the way of hits on google.05:37
JosephDdanbhfive, okay well I typed in the update and install things, and it says unable to retrieve items so I assume I need to hook this up with an ethernet cable?05:37
danbhfiveJosephD: yeah, those commands need the internet05:37

jdb93I'm running a RAID 1 set up using intel ichr10 on an X58 motherboad w. windows, and am interested in dual booting ubuntu.  That's not going to work is it.. :-)05:50

Martyr2k6ok issues here05:50
DoitleWhat does -Eperm mean? I am seeing nothing on google05:51
JosephDI got two IP address looking things, and a bunch of zeroes next to packets and errors05:51
Martyr2k6I was in here about 2 hours ago, and someone told me that if I wanted to dual boot vista and ubuntu, that I needed to install vista first on one hdd and ubuntu afterwards on the second05:51
Martyr2k6now ubuntu is all that boots05:51
GlasscanI just lost the game.05:52
ryan_Does ubuntu install with a directory "New" in your starting file system?05:52
mattgyver83JosephD, you just want to make sure your online?05:52
Flannelryan_: No05:52
nkei0I'm having a problem with networking...  However, I don't think it's related to Ubuntu, but I don't know.  I set up my D-link wireless router from within Ubuntu and am using WPA with a pre-shared key.  However, I am dualbooting winxp and when i restart into xp it doesn't even detect the network....05:53
JosephDmattgyver83, well I need to figure out why the update and install things can't retrive/fetch the items they need so I can fix that initial problem I had05:53
doleybnkei0: btw, nobody should use pre-shared keys05:53
nkei0doleyb: why is that?05:53
zenlunaticnkei0, that sounds like an xp proble05:53
Martyr2k6no, there is not a "new" folder in the first drive05:53
doleybnkei0: because it reduces security and is harder to configure05:53
mattgyver83Try this first, tell me what happens.  Sudo apt-get update05:53
nkei0zenlunatic: I figured, I just was wondering if it could be related somehow.05:53
Martyr2k6like, I am looking at my vista drive and everything is there05:54
zenlunaticnkei0, perhaps05:54
Martyr2k6any help here with dual booting?05:54
lstarnesmattgyver83: commands are case-sensitive05:54
mattgyver83Martyr, are you sure they are on seperate partitions05:54
mattgyver83thanks starnes05:54
JosephDsome index filed failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones have been used instead.You may want to run apt-get update to correct this05:54
edogzilladanhbfive: the link you asked for is http://us.archive.ubuntu.comintrepid/universe05:54
Martyr2k6well there are 2 physical drives in my compy, one is a 500 gig and the other (this one with ubuntu) is a 120 gig05:55
Martyr2k6I installed vista on the 500 gigger, and then ubuntu on the 120 gigger05:55
mattgyver83Okay, does grub launch when you boot.  Blue screen to select an OS.05:55
mattgyver83JoesphD, What does it say on the line that says 'Fetched'05:56
edogzilladanhbfive: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com05:56
mattgyver83should say something like, Fetched 308B in 1s (271B/s)05:56
Martyr2k6no... first theres the acer splash screen, then it starts booting the ubuntu drive first with a 5 second window to hit the esc key05:56
JosephDFailed to fetch 'http://.....'05:56
mattgyver83Okay, your not connected05:56
edogzillaare you still here danhbfive?05:56
Martyr2k6do I need to change the boot order in my bios?05:57
JosephDhow do I get it to connect?05:57
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, you gotta set grub05:57
mattgyver83Is it a wired connection, or wireless?05:57
Martyr2k6er, I am a newb05:57
Martyr2k6so speak slowly05:57
Martyr2k6and in easy to understand words05:57
edogzillajeez, danhbfive left. can anyone else help me05:57
danbhfiveedogzilla: that doesn't seem right05:57
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, post this /boot/grub/menu.lst05:57
mattgyver83Martyr, when you turn the compute ron, do you get a screen that is like a terminal window with a blue background05:57
edogzilladanhbfive:ah there u are05:58
Martyr2k6matt, no I do not05:58
edogzilladanhbfive: whats not right?05:58
Martyr2k6zen, what do you mean by post?05:58
Martyr2k6in terminal?05:58
mattgyver83Martyr, i think when you installed you chose not to install Grub or Lilo which i believe is an option.05:58
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, post the file /boot/grub/menu.lst onto a link so i can see it05:58
Martyr2k6not sure how to do that zen05:59
Martyr2k6matt, is this somehting I can fix without having to reinstall vista?05:59
danbhfiveedogzilla: well, it should post a pastebin like link.  Maybe the sudo apt-get install pastebinit failed.  Try running that alone05:59
mattgyver83Martyr, yeah i dont think its a big problem.05:59
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, is ubuntu the master?05:59
mattgyver83Martyr, as long as you did select the right partition.05:59
ryan_Speaking of grub...05:59
edogzilladanhbfive: it did fail i think. well, it said something like that anyway05:59
mattgyver83JoesphD, run ifconfig.  Tell me what your interface names (ie; eth0, eth0, something like that)06:00
Martyr2k6the ubuntu is on a pata drive and the vista is on a sata drive, which I thought the sata took precedence over pata06:00
edogzillahttp://us.archive.ubuntu.com isn't a pastebin link?06:00
ryan_Any idea why mine will stop the countdown to autoboot default at 2 seconds left?06:00
Martyr2k6yeah, when installing ubuntu I made sure to select the 120 gig drive06:00
zenlunaticwell you need to use grub as vista doesn't support booting linux... you gotta do chainloader06:00
Martyr2k6and zen how do I post whatever you wanted me to post06:01
JosephDmatt. link encap:Local Loopback           inet addr:     Mask225.0.0.006:01
Martyr2k6not sure I follow, again, total noob here06:01
mattgyver83JoesphD, is that all that shows?  That basically means you have no connection.06:01
hayes_i have a sound card with a cmi8738 chip and I cant get anything but a pulsing static sound from my speakers. does anyone know what I can do?06:01
mattgyver83anyone know if the live cd mem test is gonna tell me if my HD is fubar?06:02
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, just paste the file menu.lst to http://paste.ubuntu.com/06:02

rgarciahi, does anybody know how do i instal jre6 for 64-b arch?06:02
danbhfiveedogzilla: no, its a  link to the ubuntu repository06:02
mattgyver83Joesph, i was wondering the same thing.... i started to think it was a different computer.06:02
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, boot to ubuntu and sudo gedit /boot/grub.menu.lst highlight all then paste06:02
zenlunatici mean /boot/grub/menu.lst06:03
edogzilladanhbfive: ok, u want me to run sudo apt-get install pastebinit by itself and then post the link?06:03
mattgyver83hayes_ does it happen with all apps?06:03
rgarciacould anybody help me?06:04
JosephDmatt, is there a command I can use to connect? or should it automatically happen when the cable is in?06:04
hayes_it happens all the time whether sound should be playing or not.06:04
mattgyver83JoesphD, i was gonna say try to up and down the interface but I have no idea if your on the internet why your not getting a connection.  I think im missing something.06:04
Martyr2k6there I hope that I did that right06:04
edogzilladanhbfive: what do i do if it fails again?06:04
ryan_Does anyone know, is there a free IRC client that supports scripts (Like mIRC for windows)06:04
JosephDmatt, up and down the interface?06:04

JosephDhaha sorry06:10
Martyr2k6its cool, ultimately I would have had to do that as well if no one had helped me06:10
mattgyver83JosephD, this might sound silly but... .check your eth cable.  Maybe its dead06:10
JosephDmatt, the cable's fine06:11
mattgyver83could the nic card be dead?06:11
J_Litewskicould the nic card be using eth0, not eth1?06:11
xunHi, I'm using "Separated X screen" for my Nvidia card, somehow when I click on an icon in screen 1, it always opens in screen 2(in fact everything opens in screen 2). how can I specify which screen to open it from?06:12

JosephDoops lol06:14
Martyr2k6let me know when you are ready matt, or zen or whoever is helping me06:14
mattgyver83Martyr, where were we?06:15
J_Litewskihayes_ are you using the ALSA driver?06:15
Guest26350I am trying to install the driver for my audigy 2 ZS sound card, but dont know how to access my BIOS06:15
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, I'm stuck... i haven't been using ubuntu in weeks06:15
JosephDmatt, I typed it in with sudo and now its not doing anything just waiting for another command06:15
hayes_How do I check?06:15
thrillERboyhey guys how to install lamp on ubuntu 8.10 desktop version? I did some search, I get results for installing on ubuntu server? any good links are greatly appreciated. thanks06:15
mattgyver83JoesphD, thats all it will do06:15
Martyr2k6matt, I was posting my boot file for grub to you06:15
Guest26350I am trying to install the driver for my audigy 2 ZS sound card, but dont know how to access my BIOS06:15
JosephDoh so what exactly do i do now?06:16
J_LitewskiGuest26350, the BIOS van be accessed when your computer first boots up, it's usually F2 or something like that06:16
Martyr2k6you had me back up everything06:16
mattgyver83Martyr, that was Zen06:16
Martyr2k6and said that grub couldn't see loading vista as an option06:16
Martyr2k6noob again06:16
mattgyver83JoesphD, try sudo apt-get update again06:16
JosephDsame as last time06:17
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, but basically your menu.lst needs to be told where vista is, which is the root= part, but ubuntu's is different from CentOS so I ddon't know...06:17
Frijolie..guess that's a negative06:17
xunso can someone help? I'm using "Separated X screen" for my Nvidia card, somehow when I click on an icon in screen 1, it always opens in screen 2(in fact everything opens in screen 2). how can I specify which screen to open it from?06:17
mattgyver83Martyr, hold on i can give you an idea, let me check mine06:17
hayes_how do I check if I am using the ALSA drivers?06:18
rage_yo somebody know an application that could help me emulate an acces point?06:18
mattgyver83hayes_ when you go into your sound preferences its either set to autodetect or it will show ALSA, or ALSAmixer06:18
J_Litewskihanes_, Applications/Settings?mixer06:19
rage_or if you got  a recent distribution , it could be as a default06:19
mattgyver83martyr, pastebin your menu.lst @ pastebin.com, give me the link06:19
hayes_mattgyver83 I use xubuntu and I dont see those menu options.06:19
mattgyver83It will be in your preferences menu wherever you find your keyboard, mouse, apps06:20
J_Litewskihanes_, open a terminal and type xfce4-mixer06:20
ragerage_: hostap can emulate an access point however most wireless cards cannot be put in the correct mode to do so06:20
Stepan1Any way to have all the desktop icons same size?  And when a new item is saved to desktop, it automatically lines up beneath the previous icon, kinda like in MS?06:20
ragerage_: prism2 cards for example are on of the few06:20
rage*one of06:21
zenlunaticmattgyver83, why is the root= on ubuntu menu.lst all cryptic, compared to redhat06:21
mattgyver83Stepan, right click desktop, select Keep Aligned06:21
JosephDmatt, it just does the same thing it did last time, says it failed to download06:21
mattgyver83zen, not too sure i havent used redhat06:22
darkhelmetlivedoes anybody have a vista/ubuntu dual boot system working with ubuntu also available to run as a VM under vmware on vista?06:22
darkhelmetlive(or xp really)06:22
rage_thanks man06:22
Stepan1mattgyver83: that is already checked, doesnt help.  see, all the icons are a different size, images and pdfs are larger than folders.  i dont want to manually stretch /reduce the size of each either06:22
hayes_mattgyver83 it doesnt see the device at all06:22
mattgyver83martry, check this http://pastebin.com/m3008221206:22
ragenot a problem :-)06:22
rage_ill try playing with hostap, naybe i can make the thing work to an acceptable level06:23
mattgyver83martyr, dont edit anything yet06:23
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, there you go06:23
Martyr2k6not touching a thing06:23
ragerage_: What wireless chipset do you have?06:23
rage_i got a marvell06:23
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, you backed up menu.lst06:23
rage_i know is a piece of crap06:24
Martyr2k6yes, yes I did I guess06:24
zenlunaticMartyr2k6, hosing grub is not a critical situation06:24
rageI do not beleive there is any method of doing it with that chipset. But feel free to look around06:24
mattgyver83zen, i see what you mean, mine is nothing like that06:24
zenlunaticmattgyver83, yeah ;D06:24
Martyr2k6it is when you don't know jack about what you are doing06:24
hayes_mattgyver83 it doesnt see the device at all06:25
rage_its ok , im doing it just for fun, just to make something cool out my old ibm06:25
Martyr2k6I tell you I was going through synaptic the other night attempting to "uninstall" unwanted files, and slowly, I watched my os become a trainwreck06:25
rageFair enough :-)06:25
DoitleWhat header needs to be included to use uid in a sys_call?06:25
mattgyver83JoesphD, i really dont know what else could be wrong06:25

mattgyver83Martyr, i have no idea what the heck uuid is06:26
mattgyver83oh wait n/m06:26
Martyr2k6uuid sounds like something macaddress related06:27
Doitleno like a Uid for a user06:27
rage_see ya dudes,06:27
mattgyver83Martyr, i have no idea if what im about to tell you to do is going to help you, or just set you back further but.. you could try this..06:27
JosephDit just may have randomly been fixed somehow06:27
Martyr2k6oh dear06:27
Martyr2k6ok lets try it, worst that could happen is that I suck it up and follow the tutorials and reinstall and update vista06:28
Martyr2k6which thats only 2 hours of my life, nothing on a night like this06:28
mattgyver83martyr, go there ill explain06:29
Martyr2k6I'm there06:29

mattgyver83on line 157, we need to put the where its located.  I only know how to cheat to sorta find this out.  Open System - Administration - Partition Editor.... for gods sake dont press anything after that06:30
mattgyver83Okay, How many ntfs file systems are shown?06:31
zenlunaticsorry bathroom06:32
Martyr2k6matt, are you talking about on the ubuntu drive or the vista drive06:33
mattgyver83... or better yet, if you click the drop down menu @ top right does it show anything other that /dev/sda?  Im not sure how this will appear in your case.06:33
zenlunaticmattgyver83, he said he has two drives06:34
Martyr2k6dev/sda1 is my linux drive, and dev/sdb1 is my vista drive06:34
zenlunaticmattgyver83, earlier06:34
MiescoWhat kinds of apps is linux currently lacking in?06:34
zenlunaticremember grub doesn't use /dev first06:34
FlannelMiesco: that sort of question would be better asked in #ubuntu-offtopic06:34
zenlunaticthey use the bios scheme06:34
hayes_i have a sound card with a cmi8738 chip and I use xubuntu. I cant get anything but a pulsing static sound from my speakers all the time even when there should be no sound. does anyone know what I can do?06:34
Martyr2k6ok under my vista drive, alls I see is unallocated, then /dev/sdb1 ntfs06:34
mattgyver83Success, that got us nowhere.06:35
Martyr2k6so there is a 1mb is unallocated, and 465.76gb06:35
J_Litewskihayes_, the ASLA drivers don't work?06:35
Martyr2k6yeah, welcome to my life06:35
mattgyver83Martyr, Im thinking that your vista partition might be the same as mine, (hd0, 0), if its the first drive06:36
Martyr2k6yeah it is06:36
Martyr2k6one sec and I will verify06:36
hayes_i don't know xfce4-mixer doesn't see it06:36
admin_masu3701usser: wanna see what i came up with?06:36
mattgyver83I dont think really anything will go wrong by changing it, worst that will happen is it wont boot, you will have to reboot and get into ubuntu again.06:36
mattgyver83Might even just error out.06:36
mattgyver83But i dont know, its a gamble.06:37
FlannelMartyr2k6: http://paste.ubuntu.com/145276/06:37

ShinuFlannel: Did you kick him?07:20
FlannelShinu: I did.07:20
ShinuWhat kind of IRC server shows a kick as a part O_o07:20
_stochastic_polo177, well both of my OS (the virtual and the host) are versions of Ubuntu - I don't think Samba is the best way to go about that is it?07:20
lstarnesShinu: that was a /remove, not a /kick07:20
Shinuit stops kick on rejoiners right?07:21
kravlinFlannel: is it just me or have we been getting a lot more hecklers lately?07:21

Xcelledogzilla--  then @ boot  go to recovery and re-do xserver with..  sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg07:21
ShinuAh cool07:21
polo177_stochastic_, yeah, you're right my VMs are windows. I guess I don't know the best solution, but samba would work.07:21

Flanneldumb_dumb: not network issues on your end.07:23

revalI just tried gentoo, lol. so thanks to all the people that have good attitudes and try to help others in this sort of channel07:24
dumb_dumbcould it be the firewall rules?07:25

chyeahi all. is there a command, or utility that scans the file system and removes broken sym links?07:40
_stochastic_almark1, is the poping happening while you're running ardour or throughout your ubuntu system (when jack is shutdown?)07:40

almark1I'm not using pulse, I don't have it installed, Yes realtime kernel is running fine.07:42

_stochastic_almark1, do the pops happen when you're not running the realtime kernel?07:42

almark1The pops didn't happen at all, till this, I thought all was fine, my system is like 1 month old, at least 64studio Hardy07:43

almark1Yeah they are, but thats the fun in em, you know what your getting, and I have read many times that 64studio even the beta 3 Im using is very stable.07:49
_stochastic_almark1, just so you know too (and I know you want to leave now) the 64studio kernel naming scheme lists the RT kernels with 'multimedia' as the identifier07:49

magnetronsuma1→ they are different versions of ubuntu. one is 6 months older07:58
suma1ubuntu 8.04 has any drawbacks compare to 8.1007:59
MjateznikHi all.07:59
magnetronsuma1→ it's older07:59
MjateznikI got a problem with my keyboard/flash. I can't press <left> and <up> at the same time, though I can press <right> & <up> at the same time.08:00
mrsteveman1suma1: 8.04 is stuck on kernel 2.6.24 and will be for quite a while08:00
mrsteveman1i don't think they backport hardware support08:00
mrsteveman1so whatever it supports right now out of the box is it, other than add-on drivers in the repos08:00
doleybsuma1: it's older and less stuff works, plus ubuntu 9.x is out this month, and its better08:00
mrsteveman1unless you have critical infrastructure or client machines running ubuntu theres little reason to stick with an LTS in most cases08:01
Titan8990doleyb, less stuff works?08:01
doleybTitan8990: yes, many things don't work in older versions.  even in 8.10 there are some pretty bad hardware incompats.08:03
doleybTitan8990: since its now been a Long time since 8.x release, it's getting bad.08:03
Titan8990doleyb, linux has always been best for older hardware08:04
Titan8990doleyb, and LTS releases follow ideas of other more stable distros such as debian such as patching instead of updating08:04
Titan8990doleyb, its because more stuff works08:04
Titan8990doleyb, "not bleeding edge" is what you are saying08:05
doleybTitan8990: No, I'm saying that standard baseline hardware won't minimally function.08:06
magnetrondoleyb→ there's 5 months since the last ubuntu release, 8.10. there will be a new version every six months, right on schedule.08:06
doleybmagnetron: Yeah, that's what I just said.08:06
Titan8990doleyb, standard baseline?08:06
doleybTitan8990: Do you know how often someone comes in here asking why his atheros isn't working?08:07

mib_n0obmex8i wanna ask some thing08:26

roccity_moc what happens when you use your router gateway?08:27
takaoglitchd, what errors do you get?08:27
roccity_Mocs, for the nameserver08:27
Mocsroc: for the nameserver?  Nothing... no resolution, still ping by IP08:27
glitchdtakao, ill get the exactly wording in a sec08:28
glitchdtakao, failed to IDENTIFY (I/O error, err_mask=0x5)08:29
glitchdtakao,  then08:29
takaoglitchd, did you google it? does arch has some sort of recovery mode you can access?08:29
glitchdtakao,  its suppose to but it doesnt want to start up08:29
tv7497guys how do i check if my system has a built in blue tooth device  ?????08:29
takaoglitchd, is grub the bootloader?08:30
roccity_Mocs, in your resolv.conf file put in your router ip address then as root type "dhclient and what erver your interface"08:30
glitchdtakao, yes08:30
takaoglitchd, is there a recovery option in grub?08:30
glitchdtakao, ive even tried booting from a live cd nd nothing will work08:30
glitchdtakao,  yes there is08:30
glitchdtakao, should i try the recovery again?08:31
takaoglitchd, the recovery doesnt boot?08:31
takaoglitchd, what do you mean you tried livecd and it didnt work? the live cd doesnt boot?08:32
glitchdtakao, im goainnna restart it again nd try to login to the recovery ag08:32
glitchdtakao, it jus wouldnt boot08:32
takaoglitchd, 1st make sure your hardware is connected properly08:32
glitchdtakao, it jus went to a terminal type screen08:33
glitchdtakao, yes it all is08:33
takaoglitchd, you have knoppix ,what live cd you use?08:33
glitchdtakao, knoppix?08:33
takaoglitchd, knoppix = famous live cd...08:34
glitchdtakao, i have a new kubuntu cd08:34
Mocsok, modded dhclient back to the router, restarting network08:34
glitchdtakao, i dont have any other ones08:34
glickugh...not kubuntu08:34
takaoglitchd, what VGA card?08:34
glickkubuntu is aweful08:34
Mocser... modded resolv.conf, it is getting late... :(08:35
glitchdjus the standard one08:35
ikoniaGuest96188: can I help you ?08:36
glitchdtakao, its not a removable card08:36
takaoglitchd, standard?08:36
glitchdtakao, so i guess that would make it some sort of stabdard type one08:36
takaoglitchd, you said you got new hardware, if nothing boots on your system after the new hardware i would suspect its not set propely08:36
glitchdtakao, i do think ur right08:37
glitchdtakao, i dont know enough i think to properly explain this to u08:37
takaoglitchd, apart from arch,, you have anything else there? windows?08:38
glicki cant wait til jaunty08:38
glitchdtakao, no there is nothin else08:38
glickloooking forwad to jaunty08:38
glicki officially give up on kubuntu/kde for good08:38
glitchdtakao, like i said it a computer built from all new parts08:38
takaoglitchd, try another live cd- knoppix is good, you can also try bartPE (windows based), if nothing boots you have a hardware situation08:39

mr_boois there a way i can see the name of the ethernet adapter driver in ubuntu?08:40
takaotakao, if there is no hardware problem then i try arch recovery mode, go into terminal and reconfigure X08:40
glitchdthx for the attempted help08:40
roccity_thats ok glad to help08:40
gerahello, I'm in need of some help with ubuntu updates08:40
mr_boogera: what's the issue?08:41
glitchdtakao, so if i go into terminal how would i go about reconfiguring X?08:41
geraI ran the updates from the balloon, then it got stuck at the acpi-support08:41
Mocsgera: THAT I can help with...08:41
glitchdtakao, is it simple?08:41
glitchdtakao, or is that what u needed the live cd for?08:41
geraso I restarted the system, and now I'm running from the desktop cd beacause I can;'t get in08:41
takaoglitchd, in ubuntu it is...i know nothing about arch, if you can boot into recovery mode you dont need alive CD08:42
mr_boogera: try disable apic in bios08:42
TheShahFactorI am running some installation script & I get some errors ..I dont think the script should contain them.Are some scripts OS specific? Like what runs for Red hat doesnt work for ubuntu08:42
glitchdok i guess ill jus try nd figure this out then08:42
gerathe new kernel gives me a panica error08:42
mr_boogera: i know08:42
mr_boogera: disable apic in bios08:43
glitchdtakao, thx again for all the help08:43
mr_boogera: is that can't be done you should add the string "-noapic" in the boot menu08:43
takaoglitched if #arch is not helpful, you might want to try /g/ on 4chan, they have many arch users there ,but the degree of helpfulness varies08:43
gerawell I'll try that, but if it doesn't work I'llbe bothering again in a copule hours08:43
unimatrix9where could i find the dell min 9 repo's with sightspeak video chat package? for ubuntu08:44

jamieleshawHello, how do i change hard disk permission?08:45
thecommutistmr_boo: use this command - lspci | grep ethernet08:45
mr_boothecommutist: it's an onboard ethernet adapter08:46
mr_boothecommutist: prolly pci though08:46
thecommutistjamieleshaw: right click > properties > permissions08:47
jamieleshawIt says i need to be oot.08:47
mr_boothecommutist: in fact, nothing was listed08:48
thecommutistjamieleshaw: run nautilus with root privileges - gksu nautilus08:49
mr_boothecommutist: but i got a IEEE 1394 firewire adapter listed08:49
thecommutistmr_boo: try - lspci | grep Ethernet (note the capital E)08:49
cosoalare you american?08:50
mr_boothecommutist: what a fool i am, many thanks08:50
thecommutistmr_boo: it's ok! i make the same mistake all the time! :-)08:50
emoXodushi can i get assistance using ndiswrapper plz!!!!!!08:51
linchanyone could explain to newbee in simple terms why there is no rules listed in iptables but my ssh is listenning to port 22 for a connection?08:51
thecommutistemoXodus: i'll try!08:52
emoXodusis anyone here?08:52
linchhere i ma08:52
thecommutistemoXodus: shoot! i'll try to help!08:53
emoXodusi guess not08:53
jamieleshawthecommutist: My Other question is how do i login as root?08:54
quibblerjamieleshaw-> you don't use sudo08:54
thecommutistjamieleshaw: r u running gnome or kde?08:54
lstarnesjamieleshaw: you shouldn't in most cases08:54
linchjamie, create a root account08:54
linchthat's the best way to log in as a root08:55
jamieleshawthecommutist: gnome08:55
linchno sudo after that08:55
quibblerlinch-> no that is extremely unsafe08:55
linchquibbler, no it's not08:55
ubottuDo 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/RootSudo08:55
jamieleshawI'm well awear it's unsafe.08:55
lstarneslinch: it is08:56
thecommutistthen u can go to Administration > Login Window > Remote tab > Allow local system administrator login, but i guess u'll have to create a root account before that08:56
linchare you taking about logging in from the net?08:56
lstarneslinch: from anywhere08:56
linchlstarnes, there is a difference08:56
lstarneslinch: a normally harmless command run as root can do a lot of damage08:56
linchif you are on your local machine doing some installation then go on and log in as a root08:57
linchno problem with that i guess08:57
lstarneslinch: it is still safer to use sudo08:57
quibblergaain i repeat making a root login is unsafe use sudo08:57
ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)08:57
thecommutistjamieleshaw: just curious, what do u need a root login for?08:58
linchlstarnes, if you're paranoid, then yes08:58
jamieleshawNothing, I just wanted to know how for the knowledge of it.08:58
linchbut i wouldn't worry so much about 5 minutes being on the root account08:59
quibblerlinch->  do not give unsafe advice ...what you yourself wish to do is your business!08:59
linchqubbler, i stand corrected08:59
linchquibbler, back to my question though09:00
cloexhlwe stuck on a debatable point on ##linux so can somebody try to help us out here09:00
linchif you can explain to me teh question i've posed 4 minutes ago09:01
quibblerlinch-> repeat please09:01
ubuntu_nb_42ubuntu livecd in persistent mode with a 750 Mb casper-rw loopback file on a usb drive.  trying to install a 500 Mb app.  not sure i have enough room for it.  how to check?  how to get more space?  and why can't i access the usb drive directly anymore?09:01
cloexhlhave anybody tried using permisions on fat32 partitions?09:01
dalfzis there an easy way to upgrade a 32bit server install to 64bit?09:01
Titan8990ubuntu_nb_42, you can't install things on a livecd, you would essentially be installing it to your RAM09:02
thecommutistcloexhl: what's the issue?09:02
linchquibbler, it's about iptables rules; if there are no rules set --there all packets should be dropped-- right?09:02
Titan8990cloexhl, asking on different channels isn't going to make fat32 learn ACLs09:02
ubuntu_nb_42Titan8990: even with the "casper-rw" loopback file?  it doesn't give me "hd" space?09:02
linchi mean, the incoming packetes09:03
cloexhlTitan8990: if it worked with me, then there's something wrong09:03
Titan8990ubuntu_nb_42, don't know... check df -h09:03
cloexhlthecommutist: the question was about permissions on fat32 partitions09:03
cloexhlhave anybody besides me actually tried this?09:03
quibblerlinch-> i imagine it depends on how your firewall is set up09:03
Titan8990cloexhl, why not read some documentation on FAT32 instead of asking the same question over and over until you get the answer you want?09:04
thecommutistcloexhl: tried what? can u list the command?09:04
linchquibbler, let's just say it is like i said09:04
big_chillhi, whats the command to renew ip ?09:04
Titan8990big_chill, dhclient INTERFACE09:04
linchquibbler, so if that's the case why my sshd gets a connection from the outside?09:04
Titan8990big_chill, err with sudo:  sudo dhclient eth009:05
cloexhlthecommutist: chmod o-rwx /mnt/win_e/sensetivedata09:05
quibblerlinch-> port 22 is used to ssh login so I imagine it should be available09:05
linchquibbler, that i know09:05
ubuntu_nb_42is "rootfs" changed when using a "casper-rw" loopback file?  or is it using ram?09:06
cloexhlTitan8990: i already read and i see your point so iam trying to explain why it worked with me09:06
quibblerlinch-> so what is the problem09:06
linchquibbler, shouldn't it be a rule for that in iptables?09:06
linchquibbler, if i iptables -L -- there is nothing in there09:06
Firefishehow does one reset the kde desktop 4.x to defaults?09:07
thecommutistcloexhl: is that not supposed to work with fat32? why?09:07
big_chillTitan8990, thanks, i get no DHCPOFFERS - is that a router problem or ubuntu or either?09:07
gerahello, I cannot get into ubuntu, can someone help me?09:07
cloexhlthecommutist: so are you saying that it should work?09:07
doleybgera: What ubuntu do you want in?09:07
linchquibbler, i'm newbee, so forgive me for posing maybe a stupid question09:07
Titan8990thecommutist, fat32   A) has no concept of file permissions B) especially has no concept of unix permissions09:07
quibblerlinch-> i don't use ssh, so i 've never investigated ..itables  i configure with firestarter09:07
Titan8990cloexhl, hes saying he really knows nothing about it09:07
thecommutistTitan8990: how does it matters? as far linux is concerned, it's justt another device, isn't it? i could be wrong here!09:08
cloexhlTitan8990: you're talking about the general technical issue here, but i know that fat32 don't undergo unix permissions however my question is why did it work?09:08
cosoalCome from mobile hard disk copy of the things why I do not have permission prompt09:08
linchquibbler, got it09:09
cosoalwhile i make09:09
Unirgyis it me or youtube is down09:09
jamieleshawThanks For Your Help09:09
cloexhlTitan8990: and since linux deals with everything as files so why wouldn't it work?09:09
Titan8990cloexhl, I think you were mistaken09:09
grawitythecommutist: Permissions are stored in the disk's filesystem. If the filesystem is fat32, there is no place to store permissions.09:09
Heimdall@Unirgy i think its you =)09:09
linchquibbler, why do you use ubuntu, and not just debian lenny?09:09
dotchUnirgy, it's just you09:09
cosoalHow to resolve this problem09:10
UnirgyHeimdall: ok, it's not me, it's my computer :P09:10
linchcosoal, what problem?09:10
cloexhlok guys, let's get down to business, can anybody just grab a fat32 flash memory and try permissions with it?09:10
Titan8990thecommutist, linux could care less what the format is, and it will try to chmod it however, it won't work because it is not supported by the filesystem09:10
cosoal Come from mobile hard disk copy of the things why I do not have permission prompt09:10
quibblerlinch-> i have lenny in virtualbox and i look at it from time to time the last couple of weeks09:11
Unirgybut what would you think if you get this when you go http://www.youtube.com: Invalid URL | The requested URL "/", is invalid. | Reference #9.276b1160.1239005351.009:11
SpenceKidhey guys, i tried to open "Update Manager" to, well, update? and I got the following error:  E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.09:11

takaoSpenceKid, then run that command in terminal09:11
Unirgyon all browsers... but different computer shows fine09:11
Titan8990cloexhl, and in case your wandering, you also can not set unix permissions on a NTFS drive09:11
Titan8990cloexhl, even though it does have a concept of ACLs, it is not the same09:12
takaoSpenceKid, with sudo ...sudo dpkg  --configure -a09:12

vertxaa_: yes you are10:51

koshariis there an app in ubuntu to backup a complete website with local links ect? possably a firefox addon?10:52
aa_ok, my next problem is that the iptables script is generated using fwbuilder? but there is no gui on the box, so should I modify the fwbuilder xml file and run *something* to compile it, then restart iptables?10:52
Titan8990vikrant, you only need 1 boot partition10:52
Titan8990vikrant, for as many linux distros as you want10:52

Titan8990vikrant, that something that it is very recommended to share....10:52
ikoniaaa_: use fwbuilder on a box with a gui10:52
ikoniaaa_: fwbuilder can move rules onto machines remotley10:53
vikranta yum update /apt-get update wld break the kernels10:53

ikoniaaa_: pretty much10:53
Titan8990vikrant, it wouldn't break the kernels10:53

Since i couldn't get my hands on a XP installation CD so i can format C, i used a Windows 2000 SP 2 one. All went good, detected properly all 3 drives and after i selected the C partition followed by the format command, it started formatting the entire hard disk.10:57

spaceninjaI need javasupport for my browser, which package should I install?11:06
Titan8990Natanaiel, the equivalent in debian is /etc/init.d/networking11:06
