IenorandGeoffrey2: You could use a sermon from Stallman  :)00:00
sebsebsebvirtx: yes later versions of Ubuntu, may not work well on your machine00:00
virtxthat is why i'm downloading 8.04.200:00
GodfatherofEir1Jordan_U_, you there?00:01
sebsebsebIenorand:  maybe we can arrange a Richard Stallman visit for that guy :)00:01
Jordan_U_GodfatherofEir1, Yes00:01
[4-tea-2]eross: you can, but you lose the option to start with that older kernel from grub in case something with your default kernel goes awry.00:01
scunizivirtx: is this an older motherboard or newer ... in the last couple years.. does it have the gforce 8200 chipset?00:01
erossanother note on top of little to no antivirus required for basic desktop install, the linux filesystem does not need to be defragged.00:01
GodfatherofEir1Any ideas as to how to fix that?00:01
Geoffrey2sebsebseb, trust me, I understand the philosophy behind open source.....but if the open source option is simply too "alpha" to be usable, I'm not going to keep fighting with it til it's actually ready for widespread use00:02
erossi haven't gone backwards in two years :P00:02
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: oh my you called it open source, Richard Stallman would not be happy00:02
histoGodfatherofEir1: how to fix what?00:02
hwildeGodfatherofEir1, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart00:02
[4-tea-2]eross: according to Murphy, the first time you will have to, will be when you can't.00:02
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: in fact,  in the article the bot says,  it even has the bit on Open source00:02
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: open source and free software are not the same thing00:02
meshuggahsebsebseb, i am waiting your answer00:02
GodfatherofEir1histo: http://paste.ubuntu.com/146524/00:02
scunizivirtx: you might try to add msi=nopci on the kernel line when booting.00:02
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: similar, but not the same thing00:02
GodfatherofEir1hwilde, tried that00:02
histoGodfatherofEir1: when are you getting that?00:02
erossguess i'll just upgrade, thanks for the sensibility lesson 4-tea-200:03
GodfatherofEir1histo: on login00:03
scunizivirtx: sorry.. pci=nomsi00:03
histoGodfatherofEir1: there permissions of /tmp changed00:03
Burntresistorwhats the best way to set up my slave drive with unbuntu  i tired installing unbuntu on it so it can serve as a backup and i can use it as a slave, but its coming up always as primary when i boot00:04
GodfatherofEir1histo: so how should I fix that?00:04
virtxscunizi, msi?00:04
Jordan_U_GodfatherofEir1, Just as a test try to run "touch /tmp/test"( to see if for instance / is being mounted read only )00:04
histoGodfatherofEir1: let me check something real quick00:04
IenorandAlthough Ubuntu is probably not the most un-hypocritical distro when it comes to *true* freedom00:04
histoGodfatherofEir1: sudo chmod 777 /tmp00:04
erUSULBurntresistor: that is something that is controlled by bios/hardware nothing any OS can controll00:04
shavinderwhere can i check information about processor and ram etc. like in windows we right click my computer> properties.00:04
Geoffrey2sebsebseb, the word "free" generally gets tossed around here too much, with entirely too many differing meanings....00:05
GodfatherofEir1histo: thanks a million00:05
histoGodfatherofEir1: np00:05
Burntresistorjumper settings are right  can i got into unbuntu bios and change  settings00:05
histoBurntresistor: ubuntu doens't have a bios00:05
Mr_OrangeI put a script in rcS.d that doesn't end. How can I use my machine now?00:05

GodfatherofEir1 And now to get the driver for my wireless workin, then aircrack runnin....00:05
scunizivirtx: yep.. pci=nomsi.. not sure why it works but it does on my machine..00:05
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: indeed and that's half the  problem with the word.  ,but free software as in libre software,  and so  as in freedom00:06
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: not free as in price00:06
GodfatherofEir1The work never ends does it00:06
histoBurntresistor: you need to set one drive as master and one as slave.00:06
histoBurntresistor: or you can use cable select and put both drives on the same cable.00:06
Burntresistorthe one i want to be the slave is ide the master is a sata00:06
meshuggahBurntresistor, ubuntu bios?00:06
sebsebsebGeoffrey2: check out the articles on http://www.gnu.org  philopshey in about free software and that.  good reads :)00:07
meshuggahBurntresistor, ubuntu dony have bios, winshit doesnt have too, only your motherboard has00:07

kevin009anyone know how to unban yourself from denyhosts? i removed the entry from /etc/hosts.deny, but denyhosts just re-insers it when I restart the service00:07
Jordan_UGodfatherofEir1, WHat chipset?00:07
GodfatherofEir1Jordan_U, RTL8185L00:08
Geoffrey2sebsebseb, I think my point was missed though....however you want to define free, if the software doesn't work, it doesn't work....00:08
kevin009and of course I stop the service before I remove the ip from /etc/hosts.deny00:08
virtxscunizi, ok i'll try it's an nvidia with 8mb of memory00:08
sebsebseb!work |  Geoffrey200:08
GodfatherofEir1Well, working with the linux drivers for it anyway, as opposed to ndiswrapper, which aircrack cant work with00:08
ubottuGeoffrey2: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.00:08
Burntresistori know i misspoke i know where my bios is located i just want to know if its still accessible to change settings or im going about this wrong00:08

tbird02why not?00:26
bunjeeis there a linux program resembling quickbooks with Ubuntu?00:27
Singerfor me, its SSH + Puppet00:27
BigMoopiesezzieyguywuf, would I be able to actually see it and it stay open ?00:27
SingerI <3 Puppet00:27
carpii__bunjee, not really. theres homebank which is ok, but theyre all pretty primitive really00:27
Titan8990tbird02, because its absolutely worthless to a server and takes away from your valuable server resources00:27
RedMushroomwhat can i use for boot options from the live cd? is there a way to boot into a terminal from the live cd?00:27
tbird02what if i dont use the GUI and just stick with the CLI?00:28
SingerTitan8990: VNC Server (unused) is pretty light00:28
Titan8990tbird02, not to mention insecurities in VNC00:28
ezzieyguywufgMoopies: if it has a GUI then you will see it, and it will stay open until the program terminates or you exit it00:28
Titan8990Singer, but xserver-xorg, in general, is not00:28
SingerTitan8990: true..00:28
bunjeehomebank in add/remove programs?00:28

Singerthere are some cases where I install xserver..00:28
galvanizeI was wondering how I would view all processes running in top? For instance scrolling down?00:29
carpii__get htop00:29
Titan8990tbird02, as far GUI administration, you should use web tools such as webmin, phpmyadmin, and phpsysinfo00:29
Singerwhere I work, all backend servers get xserver + vnc but its not enabled by default00:29
galvanizecarpii__: ok. thanks.00:29
Titan8990tbird02, but then again, I have no idea what you plan to use this server for00:29

RedMushroomhow can i use the live cd to boot into a terminal?00:30
carpii__stealth-, try nautilus00:30
Titan8990tbird02, you don't need a server for that00:30
ezzieyguywufstealth-: I believe its metacity00:30
bunjeecarpii__ how does this install again?00:30
Titan8990tbird02, unless its a fileserver for a large number of clients00:31
ezzieyguywufstealth-: ah no its nautilus00:31
erosshow do i turn off the sticky keys00:31
carpii__sudo apt-get install htop00:31
Titan8990tbird02, if its your home personal file server, might as well just use one of your desktops00:31
stealth-RedMushroom: you can boot the cd normally, then press ctrl+alt+F1, or you could get into one by running the terminal app00:31
leagrisGuiri find /media/ExternalHD/Movies -type f -iname "*.avi" | xargs /bin/riff00:31
stealth-carpii__: thanks00:31

Matsonwhat is "hardy" mean00:32
stealth-!hardy | matson00:32
ubottumatson: Ubuntu 8.04-LTS (Hardy Heron) was the eighth release of Ubuntu. Downloading: http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.04 - See !lts for more details.00:32
Titan8990tbird02, ssh is secure but slow, you just need to weigh speed vs encyption00:32
MatsonIm running Hardy...00:32
Titan8990tbird02, I used webdav for my home file sharing, scp when I need something in a hurry00:32
RedMushroomstealth-: ctrl+alt+f1 does nothing00:32
Titan8990tbird02, ftp and NFS are also good choices00:32
=== linxeh_ is now known as linxeh
Singerits a proven fact that SCP/SSH is slow00:33
stealth-RedMushroom: in the live cd? try other ctrl+alt+Fsomethings00:33
Titan8990tbird02, but again, if you are going accross the internet, ssh security ftw00:33
Matsonthe Ubuntu installer should tell the person what the name of the install they are installing00:33
RedMushroomand i have to boot into a terminal. my desktop is fubar and not working00:33
Matsonif it did, it was not obvious enough, I just did it 6 times in a row00:33

RedMushroomstealth-: yeah, live cd. ok, trying00:33
tbird02well i set up ftp already.  thats what i use to transfer files but trying to learn ssh00:33
Titan8990Singer, yeah, encyption adds quite a overhead00:33
galvanizeanyone looking forward to jaunty?00:33
Titan8990tbird02, imo ssh is easier than ftp, but learning is always good :)00:33
Guirileagris: Thanks. That's pretty close to what I was using. /bin/riff is actually vlc transcoding, set to us $1. I think that's where my error's coming from right? The $1?00:33
ActionParsnipgalvanize: already got ;)00:33

bytor4232galvanize, I've got it installed on a desktop and my two lappies.  Thinking about hacking it onto my daughter's Eee00:34
leagrisNFS should be avoided on the wide internet00:34
Titan8990tbird02, ftp servers require configuration but ssh only requires sudo apt-get install ssh-server00:34
ianm_galvanize: using it!00:34

MatsonI was using exim4 on debian00:35
tbird02let me take that back. i'm using the ssh server, using winscp on my windows box to transfer files.00:35
ActionParsnipgalvanize: runs perfect here, not had an issue personally00:35
tbird02how do i set up ftp?00:35
Titan8990Matson, exim4 for debian postfix for ubuntu00:35
Matsonbut looks like postfix and exim4 are available on ubuntu00:35
stealth-RedMushroom: hm... well i suppose you might be able to stop the X server, which should drop you to a terminal, but it would be easier to do whatever you need to do from a GUI terminal...00:35
Titan8990Matson, either will work00:35
galvanizeActionParsnip: Good to hear. I had minor bugs with wine in jaunty.00:35
Titan8990Matson, if you already know exim4, i recommend sticking to it00:35
MatsonTitan8990: sure, but I want to go with whatever most people are using00:35
leagrisGuiri you could debug using a vanilla script that just dump its parameter00:35
galvanizeWill be downloading final release though :)00:35
MatsonTitan8990: I've done all of em00:35
Titan8990Matson, why is that even a factor?00:35
RedMushroomstealth-: how might i try that?00:35
GuiriDang. I was following along until there.00:36
stealth-RedMushroom: killing the X server? Or using a GUI terminal?00:36
Matsonmore support, other people working to solve current issues00:36
ActionParsnipgalvanize: did you use the wine off the wine repos?00:36
bytor4232galvanize, I'm mostly using just the base system, with xfce4 installed (not xubuntu).  The For the ubuntu-desktop and xubuntu-desktop machines, I'm waiting for stable.00:36

galvanizeActionParsnip: Yes, I was.00:36
ActionParsniptbird02: default settings will default users to their home dir00:36
ActionParsnipgalvanize: ok cool00:37
galvanizeActionParsnip: Besides that minor bug, I was loving Jaunty.00:37
Titan8990Matson, but anyways... postfix would be more popular in ubuntu because it is easier... many to most ubuntu users are new to linux00:37
git__is there a software to break captcha?00:37
tbird02k what do i use to connect to it00:37
Titan8990tbird02, ?00:37
galvanizeActionParsnip: Actually can't wait for Koala, rumors of a new colour is very good!@00:38
stealth-RedMushroom: well there is a program that comes on all installs, and should definately be in on the live cd. Basically its a terminal that runs as a window. In gnome, its located at: Applications --> Accessories --> terminal00:38
tbird02will winscp  work?00:38
ActionParsniptbird02: any ftp client, windows you can use filezilla or command line, linux has a vast array of clients00:38
Titan8990tbird02, if you are using fail windows00:38
tbird02fail windows?00:38
RedMushroomcan anyone tell me how to boot to a text based interface from the ubuntu live cd?00:38
Titan8990tbird02, yes, windows = fail00:38
Titan8990tbird02, the two words are synonymous00:38
tbird02haha i see00:39

DaveJansenHi Guys! I've got a (hopefully) quick question! I'm running into a problem with my Ubuntu 8.10 installation, where it states there are 810 (!) broken packages. Running repair fails on a package called 'xserver-xorg-inputz', which apparently does not exist.. Any help would me MUCH appreciated, I can't continue working until this is solved. Please ask if any more info is needed!02:44
tonyyarussobotux1: Right click on the desktop, not in nautilus.02:44
DaveJansen(pardon the somewhat long question)02:44
mothdragonhello i'm trying to get my 8.10 out of low graphics mode... is anyone here qualified to help? I've tried looking online, but i'mnot finding helpful info there...02:44

coocoloanyone know of a simple way to edit deb package dependencies?02:45
botux1oh lol02:45
n8tuserDaveJansen-> a new install? you may as well re-install to completion02:45
tonyyarussocoocolo: You have to edit the source package and re-build it.  Dependencies are defined in debian/control.02:45
DaveJansenn8tuser: I just installed it yesterday, is reinstallation the only option? That kinda sucks..02:45
Matsonwhat do I use to set which services start and stop on the server at boot time?02:46
Matsonon debian I used to use rcconf - is there somethin like that for ubuntu?02:46
n8tuserDaveJansen-> whatever you messed with that requires that many broken packages? or it seems you really was not able to complete the install02:46

zloogMatson: I belive you put what you want in /etc/init.d/rc.local02:46
wooohow do it test it out02:46
tonyyarussoMatson: you can do the same thing.  I like the sysv-rc-conf tool myself (ncurses-type pseudo-GUI).02:46
clearscreenMatson, gnome has an option to configure that.. check your administration menu02:47
mattI'm having a problem with my sound thats been goin on for a while now and I can't find a fix. I use a creative fx sb1090 usb out board device through usb. everything works fine EXCEPT for flash video. i get the video part, but the sound wont come out of my usb device. i chose the device through the gui. every other type of audio will work. the odd thing is is that the sound works through my integrated audio, even if is not selected as the d02:47

DaveJansenn8tuser: It worked fine until I tried to get compiz to work using this guide: http://tr.im/ipGq. I have removed the changes but I'm guessing it happened after running the first command02:47
Matsonzloog: for boot yes - was thinking more on "does apache2 boot at startup" and such02:48
infomomothewrath: it will let you login02:48
n8tuserDaveJansen-> to reconstruct what you have done or undo will take as much time as a fresh install (40 mins)02:48

This works with BSSID's that have no space. Can anyone tell me what I might be02:58

psywipedashvala can you get the recovery mode to boot?03:47
unopbobg,  blkid is the app you use to get the UUID or label of your device .. but haven't you already done that?  where did this value come from? UUID="DE68C21768C1EDF9"03:47

unopbobg, ok, in that output you should find the UUID for the device you want to mount automatically, you then use that UUID to create a line you put into /etc/fstab .. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab  shows you how to create the lines (see towards the bottom)03:50
zetheroojust updated Ubuntu Hardy and my wireless is no longer working with the new kernel version03:50
ashvalapsywiped: anything that can be done?03:51
mothdragonpsywiped I'd really rather avoid that... especially since it was working only 5 hours ago before i tried to change the resolution... I was playing around and set it to 340x200 for fun.. then whoops, I couldn't get it back...03:51

zetheroocoppro: give me one reason? ...03:57
copprozetheroo: because it could be a driver problem or a userland software problem, for starters03:58
zetheroocoppro: why all of a sudden with this particular kernal update?03:58

SearlesI'm installing Ubuntu on a 15 GB HDD, but I'm somewhat confused.04:17
SearlesIt's asking me for the installation size.04:18
SearlesShould I select 8 GB as the installation size?04:18
yabbermanThis is probably a dumb question, but got me stumped. I added a new hardrive and mounted the new drive as /var/ after I copied the var data into it. I then rebooted and all is working well, I want to now delete the old "/var" data sitting on the / in the first hard drive....How do I get to this data to delete it as the new mount is masking it?04:18
mogul218if you are using Wubi it does that04:18
mogul218are you trying to install inside of windows Searles?04:18
SearlesShould I use the entire 15 GB for the installation size?04:18
skorzenmib_296vpl, a smaller size? I would recommend you to resize it first, before mounting.04:18
Lint01Searles, why not?04:18
SearlesWell, would it leave any extra space for me to save files on?04:19
SearlesWhile using Ubuntu?04:19
afallenhopehey I'm having an issue with ufw. I can't delete the rules. Logs can be found at: http://pastebin.com/m145c700b04:19
Lint01Searles, you cannot set install size more than presen on your CD :)04:19
mib_296vplskorzen: i have 2 windows paritions. one of them is smaller than the other. how do I find out which on that is?04:19
SearlesThe highest amount it'll let me select is 10 GB04:19
SearlesIt's only a 15 GB HDD04:19
skorzenmib_296vpl, if they're already mounted, go to the terminal and type 'df'.04:19
mogul218is your 15 gig hard drive a separate drive, partition or just free space in windows?04:20
afallenhopecan I just remove it from /etc/ufw/applications?04:20
SearlesBut does that mean that I'll only have 3 GB left to download files from the internet to?04:20
SearlesIt's a Separate drive04:20

mogul218wubi installs a virtual drive and it is maxxed out at whatever you set it at04:20
Lint01Searles, usually you download _everything_ from internet04:20
AcierUhm, excuse me04:21
Mike_lifeguardSo, if the option to resize partitions is not available on Hardy, then is it safe to use a third-party tool to setup partitions beforehand?04:21
mogul218so if you say 10 gigs, your ubuntu install will take up about 3 gigs at the start and then you have 7 gigs left04:21
AcierBut, I'm seriously stumped here04:21
Mike_lifeguardIn the Hardy installer, I mean.04:21
SearlesOk, I got it now.04:21
mogul218if you have a separate drive tho you should do a clean install by booting up from your cd rom04:21
SearlesThanks mogul21804:21
SearlesI don't have a CD-R04:21
SearlesSo I'm using Wubi04:21
mogul218oh ok04:21
mogul218well choose the highest install size04:22
skorzenmib_296vpl, it seems like they aren't mounted yet.04:22
Lint01"installation size" is the size of virtual disk the system will be installed into04:22
mogul218you can always get LVPM and resize your virtual disk to a larger one04:22
AcierAlso, this is strange04:22
AcierAm I running Linux off the CD?04:22
mib_296vplskorzen: mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda3 /mountpoint -o force ?04:23
SearlesIf in install Ubuntu on my 15 GB HDD inside of my PC now, can I remove the HDD from this PC later and put it in a different PC and use it there?04:24
skorzenmib_296vpl, it's an option. Just change 'mountpoint' to something that makes you remember Windows. :-)04:24
mogul218i suppose you could...depends on what version of windows your are using tho04:24

SearlesI wanna' take out the 15 GB HDD I'm installing Ubuntu on right now04:25
SearlesAnd use it on an older PC that I'll get later on04:25
skorzenmib_296vpl, try that one.04:25

Ketreldamn, that's not good :(06:47
rayluFiReSTaRT: not... really. what are you trying to view ont hat website06:47
spaceBARbarianscunizi: is there anything other than crossover that is known to run office ?06:47
Sir_Brizzdoes anyone know how to get audio working properly on a laptop? I have muted the sound from the ubuntu menu but it still plays the boot sound and sounds for pidgin06:47
Sir_Brizz\it's really annoying06:47
scuniziFiReSTaRT: Doc Viewer should (which is evince) .. also scribus will, and possibly xpdf06:47
raylubotux: i have no idea, sorry. can you answer my earlier question?06:47
_motti__raylu, I'm sure of that. But filing a bug is like entering through the next door. Isn't there an equivalent for bug report in the features field?06:48
botuxraylu: which one lol06:48
raylu_motti__: yes... technically, the 'bug tracker' is an issue tracker06:48
raylu_motti__: and issues include feature requests06:48
FiReSTaRTscunizi: it doesn't though.. i downloaded the file tried to open it both with evince and OOo, same crap06:48
raylubotux:  1:46:56       raylu> botux: who uses the vista box? to avoid pain, i'd recommend getting an sftp/scp client on the vista box06:48
scunizispaceBARbarian: just straight wine should depending on the version.. if you really use a lot of visio stuff maybe running office in a VM of windows06:48
syntax\lo, how can i add a network printer in ubuntu? same goes with a dot matrix printer?06:49
scuniziFiReSTaRT: have you tried xpdf?06:49
FiReSTaRTscunizi: http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/aps/tps664.pdf06:49
FiReSTaRTill give it a shot06:49
botuxraylu: lol oh i do and i want to be able to share my music and video files between the 206:49
Ketrelraylu: is there any way to get it to work? This kinda throws a wrench in my plans for a bday gift06:49
mudithi, i am trying to convert a file in ffmpeg, i get this error >> Unknown codec libmp3lame06:49
botuxwhats an sftp/scp client06:49
Sir_Brizzbotux: can't you use samba?06:49
raylubotux: then, to avoid pain, i'd recommend getting an sftp/scp client for vista. filezilla and winscp are good choices06:50
raylubotux: then, simply set up openssh-server (read: install and you're done)06:50
botuxSir_Brizz: if it would work06:50
rayluSir_Brizz: he can, but he's having trouble setting it up. and i've never gotten that working faster than scp06:50
FiReSTaRTscunizi: same problem with xpdf06:50
Sir_Brizzyeah but it sounds like he wants to mount it on Vista, not just copy files around06:51
_motti__raylu, I went to the bug tracker website and they don't mention the feature asking as an option06:51
rayluscunizi: as far as i can tell, it's actually a pdf that tells you to go get adobe acrobat, not an app-generated error message06:51
botuxSir_Brizz: i cant see the samba shares on my vista box06:51
rayluscunizi: http://www.torontopolice.on.ca/aps/tps664.pdf06:51
botuxSiir_Brizz: Bingo sir06:51
rayluSir_Brizz: have you ever gotten samba working?06:51
Sir_BrizzI haven't tried to set it up dfor a while06:52
rayluKetrel: i'm sure it's _possible_06:52
scuniziraylu: yea.. strange. I've downloaded it and I'm trying scribus...06:52
scuniziFiReSTaRT: yea.. just found that out06:52
scuniziFiReSTaRT: installing scribus now.06:52
Ketrelraylu: is there anywhere with a tutorial?06:52
pace_t_zuluhey guys i'm looking for someone who can help me with the community documentation06:53
botuxSir_Brizz: all of the howtos are like greek to me'06:53
DoitleAnyone here ever read from hardware RTC in Linux?06:53
FiReSTaRTim installing libgnupdf0 it should have pdf 1.7 support06:53
pace_t_zuluanyone here involved in community documentation?06:53
bobgill_how do I copy the file that a symbolic link is pointing to??06:53
raylu!wifi | Ketrel06:54
ubottuKetrel: Wireless documentation can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs06:54
_motti__ok, thanks06:55
Sir_Brizzbotux: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpSamba06:55
scuniziFiReSTaRT: raylu got it.. Adobereader 8 from the medibuntu repo's opens it fine.06:56
rayluscunizi: strange... perhaps that's a feature of pdfs - to show that message06:56
scuniziraylu: first time I've even seen that.06:56
FiReSTaRTscunizi: i know.. i was hoping to avoid installing it.. always found it to be a resource-hog06:57
rayluadobe reader is software i avoid even in windows =\06:57
FiReSTaRTscunizi: thanks.. i guess ill be forced to install it and then remove it :)06:57
raylubobgill_: it happens transparently, that's the point06:57
KoolDhow do i remove an application previously installed with 'make-install'06:57
rayluKoolD: you mean 'make install'?06:57
scuniziFiReSTaRT: yea.. I hate doing that too06:57
rayluKoolD: some makefiles have uninstall, so "make uninstall"06:58
muditrelaxed: there is no package as lame-dev !06:58
rrowellso FloodBot is aking over it looks like?06:58
Doitleif I have a directory too big to see the entire ls in a terminal window is there any way I can set it to feed a page at a time like less06:58
DoitleI tried less ls -l and it didnt work06:58
rayluDoitle: shift+pageup06:58
FiReSTaRTscunizi: ah well.. in any case i'll be doing a clean install of jaunty in case there's any left-over crap :P06:58
rayluDoitle: ls | less06:58
KoolDraylu: so there is no way if they dont have uninstall06:58
rayluKoolD: correct. you could rm them... manually...06:59
bobgill_raylu: what do you mean? I have filenames that are all numbers (date/times) with symbolic links in another folder where they are named and identifiable.. I want to be in this folder, seeing the names and copying the files..06:59
scuniziFiReSTaRT: me too.. my last upgrade didn't go so smooth.. still ironing out weirdness.06:59
botuxSir_Bizz: how do i figure out what ip address my samba server is using?06:59
KoolDraylu: eh.. thanks06:59
FiReSTaRTscunizi: mine went to crap half-way through the life of hardy.. lost the ability to suspend06:59
raylubobgill_: you have symlinks that are human-readable pointing to a bunch of numerical filenames06:59
scunizibotux: it's the same as your machine running it.06:59
Ketrelraylu: of course the links that mention b43 are not working >.<06:59
Sir_Brizzbotux: it is your computer's ip address, you can see it in ifconfig06:59
bobgill_raylu: yup06:59
AK_DaveJaunty is pissing me off. The WorkplaceSwitcherApplet won't appear. According to gconf_editor I have ~20 instances of it on the top panel but none of them show.07:00
FiReSTaRTscunizi: i'm hoping jaunty will fix that and the nvidia hdmi sound streaming issue07:00
=== sleepy_cat is now known as c_nick
raylubobgill_: and you want to copy some of the files, identifying by their human readable names, but with the original numeric file names?07:00
botuxSir_Brizz: should it be listed there when i run that command07:00
DoitleAlso how do I add to my paths file and not overwrite it?07:01
Sir_Brizzthere is some way to look inside gnome, but I'm completely inept at it :)07:01
scuniziFiReSTaRT: that would be nice.. I put a new motherboard in my machine in Dec with hdmi and haven't tried it yet.. however to install and to continue to boot  I have to have pci=nomsi on the kernel line07:01
XiaolinDraconishello room07:01
rayluDoitle: paths... file? you mean $PATH variable?07:01
bobgill_raylu: I want to copy some, yes, but they don't have to be the original numeric file name.. I just want to be able to copy them by looking at the symlinks, rather than seeing where they point to, memorizing, cd'ing back and copying that way07:01
DoitleI modified it before but accidentally overwrote it instead of adding to it07:01
rayluDoitle: export PATH=$PATH:/asdf/jkl/07:01
Doitleand so could not use any shell functionality07:01
raylubobgill_: well.. you can already do that07:02
botuxSir_Brizz its not there heres what i get (http://rafb.net/p/BELC5t34.html)07:02
XiaolinDraconis<--- is linux virgin07:02
raylubobgill_: touch a && ln -s a b && cp b c07:02
raylubobgill_: will make a copy of a called c07:02
raylu!hi | XiaolinDraconis07:02
ubottuXiaolinDraconis: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu!07:02
XiaolinDraconisty ty07:03
Ketrelok better question, how do I enable ubuntu universe?07:03
* scunizi wonders why everyone has such long nicks.. they all get truncated anyway07:03
raylubotux: inet addr:
Ketrel(or is it enabled by default)07:03
XiaolinDraconisim having a little trouble with permissions07:03
rayluKetrel: /etc/apt/sources.list07:03
rayluKetrel: or system > admin > software sources, i think07:03
botuxraylu: i tried i cant see samba at that address07:03
XiaolinDraconisi try to use the same username everywhere i go07:03
raylubotux: m, no idea. talk to Sir_Brizz :P07:04
Sir_Brizzcan you ping that ip from your windows box?07:04
scuniziXiaolinDraconis: anything beyond 9 characters get truncated on my machine.07:04
botuxum lemme try07:04
raylu!permissions | XiaolinDraconis07:04
ubottuXiaolinDraconis: An explanation of what file permissions are and how they can be manipulated can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FilePermissions07:04
raylui thought you were talking about username in linux =\07:04
XiaolinDraconisheh most names under 9 chars are taken anyways07:05
Sir_BrizzXiaolinDraconis: I bet a56g09r5rb is not taken07:05
botuxSir_Brizz: yes it was  successful07:05
XiaolinDraconiscan anyone help me with editing /etc/sudoers and/or /etc/passwd files?07:05
rayluSir_Brizz: that's not under 9 chars. that's not even 9 chars.07:06
rayluXiaolinDraconis: don't do the latter manually07:06
Sir_Brizzwhoops I bumped the b key07:06
=== freaky_t_ is now known as freaky_t
rayluXiaolinDraconis: also, it looks like you're trying to do something the wrong way. what's the high-level goal you want to accomplish07:06
* raylu feels like the paperclip07:06
XiaolinDraconisi want root access on my user account07:06
FiReSTaRTscunizi: im still having trouble opening it.. doing an update...07:06
Sir_Brizzbotux, how are you trying to access the share?07:06
FiReSTaRTscunizi, nope nothing for acro07:06
rayluXiaolinDraconis: and "sudo ls" doesn't cut it?07:07
lstarnesXiaolinDraconis: then add your user to the admin group07:07
scuniziFiReSTaRT: I'm on Hardy and it works.07:07
XiaolinDraconisi believe i am in the admin group07:07
botuxSir_Brizz: well with vista im not even sure how lol07:07
FiReSTaRTscunizi, would you mind printing it to pdf and kicking it my way?07:07
lstarnesXiaolinDraconis: if your account can use sudo, it is in the admin group and effectively has root rights07:07
* D3f0 is away: Ausente por el momento07:07
scuniziFiReSTaRT: sure07:07
XiaolinDraconisbut i still wasnt allowed to edit grub menu.lst07:07
FiReSTaRTthanks :)07:07
lstarnesXiaolinDraconis: gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst07:08
rayluXiaolinDraconis: gksu gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst07:08
streenzhow do I change the default window manager without completely uninstalling the ones I dont want?  right now I'm constantly booting into LXDE by default and I want just GNOME.. I'm using GDM07:08
Sir_Brizzbotux, well for startes try going to start, and typing run in the search box07:08
XiaolinDraconisas an admin user i wasnt allowed to edit grub menu file07:08
raylustreenz: gdm has a sessions button, doesn't it?07:08
XiaolinDraconisoops i scrolled up07:08
Sir_Brizzbotux: then type \\
raylustreenz: also, gnome itself has a WM option... somewhere. i'm using gnome and xmonad07:08
FiReSTaRTscunizi, btw great news.. we finally have the nvidia 180 driver.. ill have to see if it'll solve the suspend issue on intrepid :)07:08
streenzraylu, yes I can go through and manually change it to GNOME, but theres no option to change what the default is, so from a reboot it will always go into LXDE unless i specify right now07:09
XiaolinDraconisi just dont want to have to use the terminal to do things all the time07:09
lstarnesXiaolinDraconis: there's also alt+f207:09
* FiReSTaRT brb rebooting :)07:09
raylustreenz: er, if you choose one that's not the default, it asks if you want to make it the default07:09
rayluXiaolinDraconis: why not?07:09
streenzraylu, where does it ask? I see no option, and upon entering into GNOME it doesnt bring up a prompt or anything...07:10
botuxSir_Brizz: vista doesnt have run07:10
Sir_Brizzbotux, yes it does07:10
botuxoh lol07:10
XiaolinDraconiscause im a spoiled windows refugee07:10
raylustreenz: before logging in at the gdm screen, there should be a Sessions option07:10
ryanCHcan you install 3ddesktop via apt-get?07:10
rayluXiaolinDraconis: well, you'll need to become a proper citizen or your stay here will be unpleasant07:10
rayluryanCH: what's 3ddesktop?07:11
streenzraylu, yes it has Options --- Select Session...  upon clicking that I have the different options.. I choose GNOME, and click Change Session and log in... nowhere is there an option to make this the default07:11
XiaolinDraconiswell if it makes anyone happy im proud to say i have no ntfs partitions on my machine anymore07:11
ryanCHraylu: it's a way to swtich between desktops in a 3d rotation07:11
rayluryanCH: sounds like you want compiz07:12
crdlbstreenz: with gdm, you will get a dialog that says [Make default] [Cancel] [Just for this session]07:12
botuxSirBrizz: says cannot access and is asking me if i want it to diagnose a problem07:12
rayluryanCH: try installing compizconfig-settings-manager07:12
Sir_Brizzbotux: cannot acces what?07:12
raylustreenz: strange... perhaps that is the default? upon restart, it still puts you into lxde?07:13
ron20101how can i get the latest driver for my dell studio 1535 for ubuntu ibex?07:13
streenzraylu, yes there is no option to make default, and on a restart it goes into LXDE07:13
rayluXiaolinDraconis: cool. i actually still keep it around :(07:13
rayluron20101: for what device?07:13
botuxSir_Brizz: the ip address and when i click on details it says network path not found07:13
XiaolinDraconisraylu: is therre a difference in compize-settings-manager and simple-csm07:13
raylustreenz: no idea, sorry07:13
streenzcrdlb, I dont see that dialog at all07:13
ron20101raylu video07:13
csabawhich command should I use to monitor a directory with gamin?07:13
streenzraylu, okay thanks anyways.. thanks for your time07:14
crdlbcsaba: "command"?07:14
raylustreenz: poke /etc/gdm/gdm.conf07:14
csabawhat should I type to monitor a directory?07:14
rayluXiaolinDraconis: i have no idea; i don't use either07:14
XiaolinDraconisi did have an ntfs partition until i discovered qemu07:15
raylucsaba: as in you want a line displayed on your terminal when someone creates or removes a file?07:15
rayluron20101: what video card?07:15
ron20101raylu: any direction for finding latest video drivers07:15
ron20101hold on07:15
rayluron20101: lspci07:15
scuniziron20101: what card?07:15
KetrelI can't figure this out07:16
csabawell no, I want another script to be executed... and I was told to use gamin, so I've tried to install it with apt-get install and was told that it's already installed... then in the end I found /usr/lib/gamin/gam_server but there's no help or anything on how to use it07:16
rayluKetrel: welcome to my world07:16
KetrelI installed b43-fwcutter but I can't find any info on what to do nextr07:16
rayluKetrel: try blacklisting the current driver in /etc/modprobe.d07:17
crdlbcsaba: what programming language are you using?07:17
csabathis isn't programming, I'm trying to execute the command from the shell07:17
XiaolinDraconisok can someone help me fix my /etc/passwd file?07:17
crdlbcsaba: that is a form of programming, but I doubt it can be done at that level07:18
XiaolinDraconisi googled how to get root privies and was show how to do this07:18
rayluKetrel: then, modprobe -r [current driver]07:18
XiaolinDraconisand it didnt work out the way i thought07:18
rayluKetrel: modprobe b43-fwcutter or whatever07:18
rayluXiaolinDraconis: 'able to use sudo' isn't the same as 'having root privelages'07:18
XiaolinDraconisyeah i understand this now07:19
rayluXiaolinDraconis: you execute commands as root by prepending 'sudo'07:19
rayluXiaolinDraconis: there is nothing wrong with your passwd (hopefully)07:19
XiaolinDraconisyeah i changed it to read g:x:0:0:,,,,,07:19
XiaolinDraconiswhich made my account root07:19
rayluXiaolinDraconis: ..................07:19
ubottuTo add new users to your Ubuntu system, follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddUsersHowto - For administrative privileges, users need to be made members of the group "admin" - See !sudo07:20
XiaolinDraconisyeah i got that far07:20
* FiReSTaRT rebooted too soon.. didnt have the actual 180 driver installed .lol07:20
rayluron20101: your'e probably using it already if its intel07:20
XiaolinDraconiswhat i attempted was making my account not need the terminal for root access07:21
FiReSTaRTscunizi, thanks for the file btw :)07:21
Ketrelraylu I don't think it's working07:21
bullgard4Why prints 'sudo netstat -tulpen' (http://paste.ubuntuusers.de/394711) in the first line for port 2628=Dictionary Server as  program name=0,  and is not more specific as the rest lines?  'ps 5380' prints yet 'dictd 1.10.10: 0/0'.07:21
XiaolinDraconisnow i AM root07:21
XiaolinDraconisand i dont wanna be root07:21
rayluKetrel: lsmod | grep b4307:21
XiaolinDraconisi tried changing the entry back07:21
scuniziFiReSTaRT: np..180.44 works well by the way07:21
ron20101thanks raylu for the help07:21
XiaolinDraconisbut then my profile failed to load07:21

botuxSir_Brizz:  you still there07:22
FiReSTaRTscunizi: time to reboot again and try again lol07:22
* FiReSTaRT brb07:22
rayluXiaolinDraconis: so uh, how hard would it be to reinstall?07:22
Ketrelraylu: a bunch show up, but I can't unload it07:22
scuniziFiReSTaRT: why you rebooting07:22
bullgard4raylu: Are you able to differntiate between English and German at all?07:22
FiReSTaRTit tells me i need to reboot for the driver to be activated07:22
rayluKetrel: what was the name of the driver that lspci -v said it was using? and what did you modprobe -r?07:22
XiaolinDraconisnot hard at all... how hard would this be to fix?07:22
XiaolinDraconiswithout reinstall07:23
rayluKetrel: also, did you blacklist the old driver? if so, what was the name of the thing you added to the blacklist file?07:23
scuniziFiReSTaRT: k07:23
FiReSTaRTscunizi: and while i should have crashed like 2hrs ago i NEED to know whether it works :P07:23
rayluXiaolinDraconis: i have no idea, since i've never done something that disastrous07:23
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: you could boot to root recovery console and rename your profile folder and then delete your current user, then create a user with the same name, rename back, then chown the profile to the new user (even though it has the same name)07:23
Ketrelraylu: I think I missed those steps (not that I know how to do them)07:23
ActionParsnipraylu: does ^ sound good?07:24
raylubullgard4: yes, but i can also differentiate between english and good english and was trying to help you by possibly providing you with an easier means of communication07:24
XiaolinDraconisAction has a plan07:24
rayluActionParsnip: yes, but other changes could have been made07:24
XiaolinDraconisnow i gotta find out how to backup my settings07:24
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: just wait to see if anyone says its a bad call07:24
raylui suppose its worth a try07:24
ActionParsnipraylu: ah, dang07:24
raylusince nothing can really get worse :P07:24
Aloehi everybody07:24
gujaIf I use 9.04 beta, will it be updated and upgraded to official version after I preform this operations in 15 days when it'll be official?07:25
rayluKetrel: er... ok, you said that you couldn't unload it. by that, i took it to mean you were modprobe -r -ing something?07:25
lstarnesXiaolinDraconis: or you could try using uid 1000 and gid 1000, assuming your account was the account made during installation07:25
XiaolinDraconisi wouldnt need to go to recovery console since i still have the real root account to login to07:25
ActionParsnipguja: yes, yuo will upgrade into the full release when it finally arrives07:25
XiaolinDraconislstarness i tried doing that07:25
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: yes as you will then be a different user and any files will not be locked07:26
XiaolinDraconisit gave me a bunch of errors at login such as couldnt create HOME/g07:26
AloeI tried to write a if condition where one string is compared to two other string with the operator "eq" and "and" but it doesnt seem to work. Does anybody knows another way of writting it?07:26
gujaActionParsnip, thanks for the answer.07:26
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: wll root wont give you that grief07:26
XiaolinDraconisnope root account is fine07:27
XiaolinDraconisi have two root accounts now07:27
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: those files are massively system sensitive dude, stuff like xorg.conf and smb.conf are quite disposable, user authentication and permissions messing about I would steer VERY clear of07:27
rayluAloe: show us the actual script?07:27
Aloeif ($geneID eq $geneIDl and $interactant eq $geneIDl )07:28
Aloeprint OUTFILE"gene1 exist";07:28
FloodBot3Aloe: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.07:28
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: as the account you have is screwed but I'm guessing you want to keep your user data I would do it in recovery mode with a fully functioning account07:28
ActionParsnipAloe: use pastebin, imagine if all 1300 of us did that, the channel would be pointless. think next time07:28
XiaolinDraconismy root account is fully funstional07:28
XiaolinDraconisactually all accounts are fine07:29
Aloesorry guys07:29
rayluAloe: i think you want [ instead of ( and -eq instead of eq and "&&" instead of "and"07:29
XiaolinDraconisi just cant revert to being a normal user07:29
Aloewont happen again07:29
XiaolinDraconisor it gets crazy07:29
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: its my suggestion, you are the implementor07:29
XiaolinDraconisoh yes i am listening07:29

XiaolinDraconisand your idea sounds good to me07:29
VE2EBPHi guys, I have an old laptop I can't find the way to change the brightness of the built-in LCD monitor. Is there somewhere in Ubuntu 8.10 that I can go ahead and change the settings? Thanks in advance.07:30
raylujurism: mount shows all mount points, sudo fdisk -l shows all disks (and patitions), and df -h may help you07:30

ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: no dont08:05
dandreyes but I want all A, CNAME, ... feilds08:06
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: root account is disabled so any attack on that account wiill have 0% chance of success08:06
XiaolinDraconiswhy not?08:06

ubottuActionParsnip: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo08:07

Baskt_Caselstarnes, any ideas?08:11
Nom-Someone had the bright idea of aliasing su to "su -m" as part of our production auto install CD08:11
error404notfoundI had a ubuntu-server install, i installed xserver-xorg, configured it, now when i run startx screen goes black, and i endup on the same terminal with "Fatal server error, no screens found, XIO: fatal IO error 104 (Connection reset by peer) on X server ":).0" after 0 requests (0 known processed) with 0 vents remaining." Any ideas?08:12
Nom-So behaviour was broken08:12
XiaolinDraconisand then find the disk mounter08:12
ActionParsniperror404notfound: why install server if you are going to put an xserver on it?08:12
rayluDon_Miguel: ah... we should have moved /var/lib/dpkg/info instead of all of /var/lib/dpkg. strange error08:12
thahaussXiaolinDraconis, ok I added disk mounter08:12
error404notfoundActionParsnip, just doing a test, whats wrong with it? i will remove it once i get it running and do a little work..08:13
XiaolinDraconisnow you "should" have little icons to click08:13

XiaolinDraconisi google this one08:14

raylu_motti_: if vsftpd is running as an inetd daemon, yes08:30
raylu_motti_: but unless you're using inetd for at least 1 other daemon, i'd recommend you try and run it as a normal daemon08:30
yubinjiehello everyone08:31
ActionParsniperror404notfound: you could run the command and read what other packages will be installed, see what looks good08:31
ActionParsniperror404notfound: then cancel the install and install individual packages08:32
raylu(that's what aptitude -s is for)08:32
raylu(and you don't even need to be root :D)08:32
_motti_raylu: could it be that I have inetd running and I don't know of?08:35
raylu_motti_: it would only matter if vsftpd was set to run as an inetd daemon or if inetd was listening on 22. in either case, netstat -tl will help you08:36
_motti_raylu: http://paste.ubuntu.com/146747/08:37
raylu_motti_: try netstat -tlp08:38
raylu_motti_: also, it looks like whatever's listening on ftp is listening for all addresses, so it's not a localhost-only issue but a port-forwarding issue08:38
_motti_it looks the same08:39
raylu_motti_: shouldn't there be a pid/program name column?08:39
_motti_raylu: you are right of course.08:40
_motti_raylu: http://paste.ubuntu.com/146749/08:40
_motti_raylu: I have played around with configuration las night, could it be that I have blocked outside ip's?08:41
raylu_motti_: again, it looks like it's listening for all addresses08:41
raylu_motti_: pgrep -l inetd08:41
_motti_no result08:42
XiaolinDraconiswell that didnt work08:42
rayluok, not definitive that it's not an inetd, but i'd say that it's a port forwarding issue now08:42
_motti_raylu: so I need to configure my router?08:42
raylu_motti_: yep. wait, you have tried to do that already, right?08:43
Machtinhey guys.. i got a few 100 files which have a .htm-extension - however, i want that extension to be removed.. how do i do that? i thought of something like mv *.htm /bla/*-htm08:43
Machtini'm fine with a tool, too08:43
rayluMachtin: for $file in .08:44
_motti_raylu: As I wrote at the beginning, I thought I should but I didn't find any reference for it on the web08:44
rayluer, wait...08:45
Machtinraylu: mind giving me a complete command? i don't want to mess it up08:45
_motti_raylu: What should I configure, the port forwarding or the virtual server?08:46
rayluMachtin: http://rafb.net/p/dy7VKd46.html08:46
rayluMachtin: echo will show you what that script is doing. if it works, take out the echo08:46
raylu_motti_: er, those are normally terms for the same thing, right?08:46
Machtinraylu: save as bash-script-file?08:47
XiaolinDraconisActionParsnip: should i have used chmod on it as well?08:47
_motti_raylu: If I knew, I wouldn't ask you. I'm searching the web for router configuration.08:47
rayluMachtin: yes. but i think i screwed that up; one sec08:48
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: you could use: sudo chmod -R 750 /home/<user name>08:48
Machtinraylu: take your time :) i think "file" should be something like $file, %file, no?08:48
Machtinand noext next.. i think08:49
XiaolinDraconisActionParsnip: i believe i need 64408:49
rayluMachtin: no and no. noext is a variable08:49
rayluMachtin: and ${file%.htm} strips the last ".htm" http://tldp.org/LDP/abs/html/refcards.html#AEN2181108:49
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: 6 = read + write, surely you want execute priveledges on your own data?08:50
rayluMachtin: do these filenames have spaces in them?08:50
_motti_raylu: here is first line from a documentation about virtual server of some router company "Virtual Server, also referred to as Port forwarding or port mapping can be setup with the router."08:50
Machtinraylu: nope08:50

rayluMachtin: http://rafb.net/p/EiSvTq90.html08:50
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: and why does anyone outside your own group need access?08:50
rayluActionParsnip: 4 = read, isn't that standard?08:51
Machtinraylu: thanks :)08:51
XiaolinDraconisActionParsnip: i have no idea what the numbers mean08:51
rayluMachtin: it didn't blow anything up?08:51

Machtinraylu: just wondering how to use it..08:52
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: 5 = 4 + 1 = read and execute08:52
rayluMachtin: put it in a text file and either chmod +x it or run "sh filename"08:52
Machtinah, and it just needs to be in that folder?08:53
Machtini don't have to give * as argument or sth?08:53
rayluMachtin: nope. that's what the *.htm is for08:53
rayluMachtin: you could make it foo/bar/*.htm08:53
Machtinwonderful, thanks08:53

dawid<ActionParsnip> if i write "mc" it will search for mc in $PATH ?08:55
Boohbahlyhana8: why would you want to do that?08:55
rayluAdvoWork: yes, but are you prepared for the security risk?08:55
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: if you are ssh-ing to an ubuntu box I would use sudo -i08:55
XiaolinDraconisActionParsnip: so why not 700?08:55
lyhana8Boohbah: to share DB among my gentoo and my kubuntu. Work fine with gentoo but not on ubuntu08:56
s3r3n1t7ActionParsnip, su <user> is only to switch from user to user, no need for the sudo pass on that08:56
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: sure if yuo want nobody but the owner to have access (and sudo of course)08:56
rayluAdvoWork: edit your ~/.ssh/config by adding the following two lines:08:56
bj0dawid, yes08:56
rayluAdvoWork: Host
rayluAdvoWork: User asdf08:56
ActionParsnips3r3n1t7: true, just used to people thinking sudo su is good08:56
rayluAdvoWork: that's the not-a-security-risk part.08:56
Boohbahlyhana8: if you change the uid then any files will still be owned by the old uid. you will have to chown them08:57
ragedracersorry to intrude..  is any one here a expert with gnucash?08:57
raylulyhana8: um... the other OSs can connect to the mysqld... that's... the point...08:57
s3r3n1t7ActionParsnip, got the same thoughts ... then read it again and didn't see the sudo there (then again, todo made me read sudo first)08:57
ActionParsnips3r3n1t7: yeah same. oh well08:57
lyhana8raylu: yep i want to work on the same DB on both OS08:58
raylulyhana8: right...08:58
raylulyhana8: so apps on the other OS open tcp connection the mysqld on the first OS and it gets access to the exact same data08:58
XiaolinDraconisActionParsnip: im going to try it again but is there a way to get back to login screen if it fails?08:59

lyhana8beli: yep09:02
s3r3n1t7raylu, yeah true .. but it's confusing, since most people associate stop with kill09:03
raylus3r3n1t7: by the way, which is more powerful, kill or term?09:03
XiaolinDraconisok ill go give this a try09:03
belilyhana8: mysql devels have their own ubuntu release?09:03
Machtini'd say kill!09:03
raylubeli: no, but ubuntu devels do09:03
s3r3n1t7raylu, kill can't be blocked, term can09:03
raylus3r3n1t7: ok. i can never remember which is which09:03
s3r3n1t7raylu, assuming you mean kill as in kill -909:04
beliraylu: i can't follow you.....any webinformation about that?09:04
raylui mean kill as in SIGKILL. i can remember kill -9, but i forget which it sent09:04
AdvoWorkActionParsnip, why sudo -i?09:04
raylubeli: almost every single ubuntu package has been at least slightly modified by ubuntu devs09:04
AdvoWorkraylu, i dont want any security risks really, so will editing .ssh/config and doing what you suggested fix that?09:04
raylubeli: even if it's just adding 'ubuntu' somewhere to the version string09:04
s3r3n1t7raylu, yeah, -9 sends kill signal, ==>  KILL       9   exit      cannot be blocked09:04
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: i misread your question, my bad09:04
sarmisaks3r3n1t7: -9 is SIGKILL09:05
ActionParsnipAdvoWork: thought you were using sudo su which isnt advised09:05
rayluAdvoWork: it will make it so that ssh equivalent to ssh asdf@
lyhana8beli: what do you mean ?09:05
s3r3n1t7sarmisak, i know09:05
ActionParsnips3r3n1t7: -9 is the biggest hammer, no foolin09:05
rayluAdvoWork: if you want to avoid typing the ip all the time, you could then make an alias for 'ssh' or make an environment variable for
s3r3n1t7ActionParsnip, yup09:05
sarmisaks3r3n1t7: and with -1 it kills everything09:06
beliraylu: he was speaking of an ubuntu version done my mysql folks...09:06

lyhana8beli: yep it seem to have different config than the gentoo one as on gentoo changing: mysql user ID+files permissions was enough09:08
sarmisakActionParsnip: that was what I was looking for ;)09:08
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: all good09:08
scuserraylu: could I find some distribution with gcc less than 3.3, may be 3.2 or even less09:08
XiaolinDraconisty ty09:08
_motti__raylu no. I mean ftp url09:08
XiaolinDraconisso far all is good09:08
_motti__raylu: command line09:08
rayluscuser: why?09:08
XiaolinDraconissept my main menu icon is gone for some reason09:08
belilyhana8: enough todo what? what are you going to do?09:09
raylu_motti__: what do you mean 'your url'?09:09
_motti__I have listed it on dyndns09:09
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: ok well from now on. DO NOT mess with that file. EVER09:09
rayluXiaolinDraconis: unless it's for fun09:09
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: ive used linux for years now and never once had to09:10
_motti__raylu: yotam1.myphotos.cc09:10
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: can you link me to the page you used as a guide please09:10
XiaolinDraconisi just didnt like the idea of not being the user who had total control over the system09:10
raylu_motti__: i see that. are you sure the dns entry points to the right place and the port forwarding is to the right ip?09:10
XiaolinDraconislemme check my history09:10
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: you do, with sudo09:10
rayluXiaolinDraconis: if you wanted that, you  could run windows xp09:10
AdvoWorkBoohbah, not really, i could use that but it goes on ip, typing ssh name is no easier than typing ssh ip but i want to just click it and automate every step09:10
scuserraylu: I have a source code that was compiled with an old compiler which should be less than 3.3, when I try to use any higher compiler the compiler produces errors, so I installed 2.95.deb and its deps and tried recompilation but things went worse as I received gcc internal error09:10
lyhana8beli: i'm trying to share DB among gentoo and kubuntu. So i need to have the same user ID for mysql on both system. I change it on both system then i need to change the file permission to the new user ID, i did it. It work fine on gentoo, but not on kubuntu where the server refuse to start09:11
rayluscuser: you can probably build gcc-2.95 from source... with a higher gcc... maybe...09:11
XiaolinDraconisraylu: why would you speak such inappropriate words09:11
XiaolinDraconischildren might be present09:11
scuserraylu: well I tried but the build failed :(09:11
_motti__raylu: the router is ok. (I'm repeating messages I didn't place your name in them)09:12
rayluXiaolinDraconis: the point being, part of linux's security is in keeping users users and not giving the permission to muck with system files09:12
simplexiolyhana8: what error it gives09:12
rayluscuser: the build of gcc-2.95?09:12
scuserraylu: yes09:12
simplexiolyhana8: and are these mysql instances on difffrend computers ?09:12
belilyhana8: dont mix things....permissions != uid/gid ....09:13
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: linux uses proper access and restritedness where it is appropriate, windows default user model is admin which isnt appropriate and why they get so many issues09:13
raylu_motti__: then i'm not sure. either the dns entry is bad (check with the 'host' command) or your port forwarding isn't set up properly09:13
_motti__raylu, and nslookup my url give the internal ip of the router09:13
raylu_motti__: internal ip?09:13
belilyhana8: you dont touch the permissions, but switch uid and gid09:13
kaushalhow can i set ignore case while searching for any string uppercase or lowercase in man pages ?09:13
_motti__raylu: yeah, the ip I use to access my router09:13
rayluActionParsnip: well, they fixed that in vista. except it asks you _after_ you try and do something and, consequently, makes people very frustrated09:13
lyhana8simplexio: the only error is the init script one: 'fail', and I don't understand why I'haven't any log09:14
belilyhana8: use chown for that.....did you create a completly new group and user for mysql?09:14
raylu_motti__: yotam1.myphotos.cc has address
raylu_motti__: that seems correct to me. is that your router's WAN ip?09:14
lyhana8beli: yeah sorry mix the terms09:14
ActionParsnipraylu: windows security in that way is garbage, and whats worse is that some apps actually need write access to the %WINDIR% so you have to have some form of admin power, its preposterous09:14
rayluActionParsnip: yep.09:14
lyhana8beli: nop just change the uid of the current mysql09:15
simplexiolyhana8: cat /etc/init.d/mysql and see what command it uses to start mysql, then use it command to start it and see error, or see /var/log/mysql log file if it exists, or syslog09:15
XiaolinDraconishere is the one that said to edit sudoers file09:15
belilyhana8: the init scripts are as the name says: scripts.... less /etc/init.d/mysql  and see how mysql is started...do it manually on the command line and you will get some errors09:15
ActionParsnipraylu: classic example is organizational charts in office 2003, needs access to the windows dir to run. MS fix says "oh make them power users"09:15
belilyhana8: the uid or the username?09:15
simplexiolyhana8: and probably ubuntu tries to start mysql as mysql user, so mysql user gid must be same as gentoo mysql user09:15
XiaolinDraconisnow im looking for the one about editing passwd09:15
lyhana8beli: the UID was 122 i put 888609:16
cheshairhi! i'm having problems with brother mfc680cn printer drivers under ubuntu. i get ps documents printed as row text instead of postscript. do you happen to have any hints?09:16
raylulyhana8, beli: most likely because the user it's running as doesn't have permissions to create logs :P09:16
ActionParsnipXiaolinDraconis: can you give me us thelink if you find it, you may also want to contact them yourself to tell him / er of your experience09:16
XiaolinDraconiswill do09:16
simplexiolyhana8: thought i dont know about mysql, but postgresql uses that configuration. its allways run as postgresql user for better security09:16
lyhana8raylu: I check that too, and the mysql user was the owner of the log09:17
belilyhana8: so lemme explain....what is hardcoded to a file on linux to verify permissions is the uid and the gid....username and group are just parsed from /etc/passwd and /etc/group09:17
s3r3n1t7XiaolinDraconis, uhm a note about that one, you can probably use the nopasswd function in the visudo file which is a lot safer.09:17
belilyhana8: so you have to adjust file/dir permissions to the new uid09:18
lyhana8beli: I do exactly the same process on gentoo and ubuntu, gentoo work, ubuntu doesn't09:18
=== mib_ktc7lkxf is now known as kalana
belilyhana8: and? maybe gentoo isnt verifying stuff on mysqld startup09:18
souzaalguem fala portugue09:19
_motti__raylu: no, the ip has changed,I still need to configure ez-ipupdate properly. I have update my ip in the dyndns server but I still get connection refused. are you sure that 22 is the ftp port?09:19
belilyhana8: gentoo gives the user more control....thats not always good09:19

belilyhana8: just start as root: /usr/sbin/mysqld09:19
_motti__yeah, I just wiki it.09:19
ActionParsnip21 is FTP, 20 is ftp data (wasteful protocol)09:20

mimiloonraylu: sorry about the delay; i typed this: ndiswrapper -i [the .inf file, then sudo modprobe ndiswrapper, then sudo ndiswrapper -l, but i don't know what to do after09:33
raylumimiloon: generally, you want to remove the module that your card is currently using first. "lsmod -v" will show you that09:34
lyhana8beli: `/usr/sbin/mysqld` did it as root09:34
raylumimiloon: also, modprobe -l shows you the currently installed ndiswrapper cards, so doing that after modprobing is sort of pointless09:34
souzacomo entra numa sala no brasil?09:34
ActionParsnipraylu: or lsmod09:34
raylumimiloon: finally, you need to do "sudo ndiswrapper -a" before modprobing... i think09:34
ActionParsnipraylu: ndiswrapper -l09:35
rayluActionParsnip: lsmod will show you all the modules, but you have to guess which is for your card09:35
rayluActionParsnip: and i'm not thinking -l, i'm thinking the one that writes the module deps09:35
rayluActionParsnip: which, iirc, is -a09:35

starenkahi i've just switched to jaunty, but i got grub 22 error BEFORE i even get to menu (clean install over hardy partition), how to solve it?09:36
ActionParsnipraylu: lsmod shows each module + its deps on the right if thats what you mean?09:36
belilyhana8: did you manually mount that stuff? maybe you did mount it read-only...what filesystem is it using?09:37
imyousufI am trying out the Jaunty and I had a generic question09:37
imyousufI have ext3 partitions which when moundted are writeable by 'root' only. But I wanted to be writeable by any user belonging to 'plugdev' group. Any idea how I can do that from fstab? I want to avoid the chmod command everytime I start my laptop.09:37
raylumimiloon: oops, i meant "sudo ndiswrapper -m"09:37
rayluActionParsnip: it shows the deps, but it doesn't show which one is the wireless module09:37
ActionParsnipraylu: ahhh09:37
rayluActionParsnip: and ndiswrapper -m informs modprobe about the deps it's going to have... i think09:37

XiaolinDraconisguess all is not well09:59
XiaolinDraconisi got that after attempting to update09:59
belilyhana8: so it has to be an apparmor issue09:59
benjamin__hi all10:00
belilyhana8: sudo vi /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld10:00
XiaolinDraconisanyone have a clue on what that error means?10:00
sarmisakbeli, lyhana8: if this is not a production box just remove apparmor, it's much faster10:00
sarmisakbeli, lyhana8: and simpler ;)10:00
ActionParsnipimyousuf: does realtime on its own not work instead of all those options?10:01
eldenzwhere does apt store its .deb files?10:01

belisarmisak, lyhana8: i would use apparmor if its not a big load box...just adjust the acl10:01

belilyhana8:  /mnt/data/system/share/mysqldb rw,10:05
belilyhana8: and:  /mnt/data/system/share/mysqldb/** rwk10:05
belilyhana8: then restart apparmor and start mysqld10:05
rayluimyousuf: so, technically, the 'correct linux kosher way'10:05
XiaolinDraconisi cant sudo10:06
imyousufraylu: guess so10:06
rayluimyousuf: is to create a directory inside that partition and give that to the user10:06

imyousufraylu: but the dir itself is created by the root and then he has to assign chmod/chown :(10:07
belilyhana8: ok try it with just r10:07
imyousufthats the thing I wanted to avoid raylu :(10:07
rayluimyousuf: but you only have to do that once10:07

belilyhana8: but it doesnt really matter...think of what a directory +w does10:08

innocivand an error message returned apache on port 8010:17
ikoniainnociv: then look at which one is running10:17
innocivlighttpd should be port 80 and apache on 808010:17
ikoniainnociv: telnet to it10:17

professor_from the wiki "ou should set an SSH server up as discussed in the SSH guide and configure a VNC server that you can start in so-called once mode, as described below. When you have set up your SSH and VNC servers, you can use SSH to log in to your computer over the Internet, start your VNC server, and use port-forwarding to securely access the VNC server. "10:18

ikoniainnociv: netstat -a | grep LIST shows all listening thinks, but that won't help you identify10:18
Slartbye bye badfish10:18

ActionParsnipgrawity: true, but thats differnt distros, so is different10:21

ikoniagrawity: reminder - I'm not asking you a question, I'm asking a user why he is ASKING my client for information10:23
ActionParsnipscuser: and do you have all the -dev dependancies of the app?10:23
macvrActionParsnip: i had tried that but its a binary... !10:23
scuserActionParsnip: well I don't know that I have nothing to say which -dev dependencies that the app needs10:24
macvrUbersoldat:  i thought that that was the file for the notification settings...  to edit it!10:24
ikoniagrawity: and FYI: if I'm displaying displeasure at it - it's best for you to not do it too10:24
ActionParsnipscuser: to compile apps you need all the dependancies it needs in dev format so its functinality can be compiled in, the outputs saying that certain things are undefined highlights this10:25
ActionParsnipscuser: you need to find out what gives the functionality for each error and install that app and its -dev file10:25
scuserActionParsnip: is there a way to know so or just try and error ?10:25

stethoHi. Have a PC (P4) that was running another distro. I'm trying to install Server 8.10 on it. Power on, boot from CD, choose language, choose "Install Ubuntu Server" - at this point the machine reboots. I'm guessing it's a hardware problem or incompatibility but thought I'd ask if anyone has seen this before I start stripping bits out to find the culprit.10:33
ikoniastetho: sounds like a hadware issue10:34
stethoikonia: I agree but I've never seen Ubuntu (or other distro) die before it's even started the install.10:35
ikoniastetho: I've seen it many times - as to install you need a running OS to run the installers, and if the installer makes a call the hardware doesn't like, it restarts10:35
stethoOK. I'll have to check it by elimination then. Dull :-)10:37
Ubersoldatstetho: did you try booting to the live system?10:37
stethoThat's the problem. Actually - I didn't say it explicitly, I apologise :-) I can boot the CentOS that was on there and I can boot from Kubuntu Live CD. Server dies as soon as I choose Install.10:39
innocivis apache2.conf the same as httpd.conf?..10:39
