Yanick_th0r, this what I get : http://pastebin.com/m252b92cd00:00
Gourlisyeh00:00
sweetdesebsebseb: alright, thx a lot, im on my way then.00:00
GourlisATI isn't supported yet on 9.04 ;o00:00
th0rYanick_: give me a sec to take a look00:00
GourlisSo I'll stay with LTS Releases00:00
RohaqI want to run a cronjob at 2am every day, and shutdown unless it's stopped by myself, can anyone suggest how to do this?00:00
Yanick_th0r, thanks00:00
sebsebsebsweetde: no problem00:00
burnerseriosly... why are two linux servers that were running hardy full?00:00
funkyHatsnell: seriously, you need to upgrade from Gutsy00:01
sebsebsebsweetde: and Virtualbox is better than the free as in price VMware versiosn00:01
sebsebsebversions00:01
proqtrue, virtualbox is a great enterprise-grade vm from what I can tell00:01
ubugtuhow do i downgrade back to hardy?00:01
funkyHatGourlis: which ATi card do you have?00:01
sebsebseb!downgrade | ubutgtu00:01
ubottuubutgtu: Attempting to downgrade to an older Ubuntu version is explicitly not supported, and may break your system.00:01
th0rYanick_: ok....looks like the drive is mounting ok as sdb. type control-c in the terminal to stop the tail command. Then type 'mount' and see if sdb is already mounted00:02
snellfunkyhat, im only using it because i have ardour setup to work on it and it has all my song files. ive already got hardy on another drive00:02
sebsebsebubugtu: from which version?  8.10 or 9.04?00:02
neoTheCathello.  i am running vbox 2.2.2 on Ubuntu 9.04.  i am trying to install Ubunutu 9.04 server as a guest, but it just stalls at "Installing at 74% - Configuring man-db" screen00:02
neoTheCatas anyone had this problem00:02
sebsebsebubugtu: and why?00:02
sebsebsebneoTheCat: you can ask in #vbox00:02
Yanick_th0r, no00:02
proqdoes anyone know of a good package to create an image (like an iso, but a tarball or other file type will work) from an ubuntu system using as little space as possible for the resulting file?00:02
GourlisfunkyHat, ATI Radeon RS490M X120000:02
Gourlison 8.04 now am perfect00:03
neoTheCati did.  i just did not know if this was an ubuntu issue someone has seen.00:03
ubugtusebsebseb: 9.04. because it doesnt support bluetooth headsets and because it doesnt allow me to press F2 and get a run dialog box.00:03
burnerproq: 7zip?00:03
th0rYanick_: this is an ntfs drive?00:03
funkyHatsnell: if you upgrade ardour should still work fine, and Ubuntu 7.10 is not getting any security updates anymore00:03
chuck_DGMurdockIII, http://paste.ubuntu.com/176011/ here is my entry from /etc/X11/xorg.conf00:03
sebsebsebubugtu: why not install 8.10 instead then?  it has just under a year of support,  and  9.10 is out in October   with  10.4 in April the next LTS00:03
Yanick_th0r, yes00:03
sebsebsebubugtu: 8.04 being the current LTS00:04
rabidweezlegah I swear that linux is the only stable 64 bit os, which is great for linux, but I can't get anything else to run stable at all....00:04
funkyHatGourlis: I have an X1650 and it works fine in Jaunty. I'd suggest trying out the live CD to see if your card works fine. But then if you're happy with 8.04 then that's fine, :)00:04
Name141Hello, I am having issues with e1000e module. I used rmmodule e1000e, and then modprobe e1000.  Then I do /etc/init.d/networking restart , and it says it restarted everything.  yet I don't have a connect.  So I did "ifconfig eth0 up" , yet it claims there is no eth0.00:04
th0rYanick_: ok. Do you have a mount point already set up for the drive? maybe /media/sdb1 or some such?00:04
Supersaiyan_IVDoes closing windows while in compiz's "scale mode" crash compiz? can someone confirm this?00:04
Name141Is it possible for me to make it use the e1000 on restart, and how do I get it to work properly for my NIC ?00:04
Yanick_th0r, no, it used to mount automatically00:04
funkyHatsnell: funny, I was trying to get ardour working earlier today actually00:04
Yanick_th0r, into /media/MEDIA00:04
sebsebsebubugtu: makes a lot of sense to do 8.10 in your case, and then go  9.10 or  10.04 or well both.  remember you would have to upgrade through 9.04 first00:04
th0rYanick_: are you using gnome00:04
Yanick_th0r, yes00:04
GourlisfunkyHat, I had 9.04, I don't have any objection with 9.04 but I messed up things with graphics drivers etc.. so I did a fresh install today back to LTS.00:04
AmpelbeinName141: can you pastebin the output of dmesg after loading of the module?00:05
Gourlis:)00:05
Supersaiyan_IVDoes closing _gedit_* windows while in compiz's "scale mode" crash compiz? can someone confirm this? ***00:05
unkocan someone help me with Songbird? it won't load up when i try to open it...00:05
Ampelbein!paste | Name14100:05
sebsebsebGourlis: to the LTS hummm00:05
ubottuName141: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu.com (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic)00:05
sebsebsebGourlis: see above what I said regarding 8.10 and that00:05
Name141Ampelbein: absolutly not.  As I can not run the OS if there is no NIC lol00:05
snellfunkyhat my ardour files front my gutsy installation dont play on hardy for some reason. are you saying i should just give up on it tho?00:05
chuck_DGMurdockIII, you need to change the identifier to yoour card00:05
th0rYanick_: in the terminal type 'ps ax | grep gvfs'00:05
DGMurdockIIIok00:05
sebsebsebGourlis: 8.04 seems to old now,  I would  run at least 8.1000:05
th0rYanick_: you should see a line that ends with /usr/lib/gvfs/gvfsd00:05
snellfunkyhat it seems like i just need to reset my monitor settings, or have it redetect what monitor my laptop is using00:06
AmpelbeinName141: well, without the output of dmesg this is kinda hard to debug ;-)00:06
=== mike is now known as MGrunde
sebsebsebGourlis: 9.04 isn't that good really, and 8.10 was good, so yeah at least 8.1000:06
Yanick_th0r, yes00:06
Name141Ampelbein: however, the e1000e module makes my NIC twinkle at the router, and never gets a connect from the modem directly either.  But I rmmod e1000e, and modprob e1000 , and it stops twinkling like a moron, yet it doesn't bring up a connection.00:06
GiganticHola00:06
Noob541hi00:06
funkyHatsnell: we've already reset your monitor settings. Something else you could try perhaps is uninstalling fglrx (don't know if you had that installed or not)00:06
Gourlissebsebseb, nevermind dude - I do my job right? yeeahh :P I'm LTS lover hahaha ;)00:06
th0rYanick_: have you tried to mount it manually?00:06
Giganticwhat's the diff between the desktop and server versions? anywhere a list?00:07
Yanick_th0r, yes00:07
Name141Ampelbein: this didn't happen in hardy, it started in Intrepid and now same in Jaunty00:07
funkyHatGigantic: different kernel, no desktop installed by default00:07
MGrundeWhere are the X config files are now that xorg.conf is not really used?  I want to see what video driver I'm using and possibly change it.00:07
Yanick_th0r, but I'm not sure if I got the syntax alright, I don't do that everyday00:07
sebsebsebGourlis: LTS is for newbies,  servers, or business's that are slow when it comes to upgrading stuff00:07
GiganticfunkyHat: stable versio I guess... that's it?00:07
Gourlissebsebseb, I'm a newbie too. :D00:07
Yanick_th0r, I did "sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/MEDIA" but it says it cannot access /dev/sdb1 or something00:07
Name141sebsebseb: LTS is for people that want a working OS as of now.00:07
Name141for me00:08
mobi-sheepubugtu:  Do your machine support bluetooth?00:08
th0rYanick_: ok. First, you need an empty dir to mount to. in the terminal type 'sudo mkdir /media/test'00:08
sebsebsebGourlis: ,but I meant the  really computer ignorant newbies maybe,  or  newbies with really old hardware00:08
sebsebsebName141: 8.10 is a working OS :)00:08
Giganticand what's the help bot in here?00:08
Name141sebsebseb: about like Win9500:08
Yanick_th0r,00:08
Yanick_k00:08
sebsebsebName141: nonsense00:08
sebsebseb!ubottu |  Gigantic00:08
ubottuGigantic: Hi! I'm #ubuntu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi - Usage info: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuBots00:08
funkyHatGigantic: yes, the rest of the system is the same. There's no need for a desktop environment on a server so it's not installed, and the kernel is optimised more for typical server usage than desktop usage. You can actually install the server kernel on a desktop install if you want to (or vice versa)00:09
AmpelbeinName141: can you see anything unsual in the dmesg output after loading the module?00:09
sebsebsebName141: first of all Ubuntu and Windows 95 are two completly differnet OS's00:09
Giganticsebsebseb: danke00:09
Gourlissebsebseb, dunno mate.. I don't wanna go far with next releases because I don't want to lose my graphic drivers again as it happened with 9.0400:09
th0rYanick_: then type 'mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb1 /media/test' (you were close)00:09
yoyit2amarok iphone  /mnt/ipod/iPod_Control/iTunes/iTunesLock how do i removethis?00:09
snellfunkyhat what about sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg?00:09
Name141Ampelbein: I guess I should go try this again, and use dmesg shortly after?00:09
sebsebsebGourlis: did you do 8.10?00:09
sebsebsebGourlis: I would suggest upgrading your 8.04 to 8.10 and running that untill  9.10 or 10.0400:09
GiganticfunkyHat: all rite ty... I know what you talking about, just new to the distro00:10
funkyHatsnell: can't hurt00:10
sebsebsebGourlis: unless you want  KDE3  from the repo in Ubuntu :)00:10
Name141sebsebseb: not if they both don't work for your hardware00:10
Yanick_th0r, I needed to add sudo before, and the result is.... ntfs-3g: Failed to access volume '/dev/sdb1': No such file or directory00:10
=== matiu is now known as Guest47930
sm0k3dI just wanted to say that this is the greatest distro off all time guys, and I want to express my profound and deep gratitute to all of you, who are the makers of gentoo linux. Thank You :)00:10
Gourlissebsebseb, :D I won't do anything tonight *tomorrow* :P tonight am tired of reading psychology stupid exam for tomorrow00:11
sebsebsebName141: your obviosuly a newbie, and don't reolize that not all hardware will just work, because of hardware manufactures that do not release specifications,  and make the hardware only for Windows00:11
AmpelbeinName141: right, just type dmesg after modprobe the module. you could compare the output before modprobing and after to only see what is new and write this info on a sheet of paper, then typing it to pastebin ;-)00:11
Name141Ampelbein: OK.00:11
Gigantic1 more Q... I guess there is no diff between Ubu/Kubuntu but for the desktop installed by default righ...00:11
sebsebsebGourlis: 10.04 is the next LTS00:11
th0rYanick_: the lines you put in pastebin. They did show up after you plugged in the drive, right?00:11
Yanick_yes. I didn't remove the plug since00:11
Giganticno diff installer or versions of other stuff00:12
yoyit2daniel@daniel-u9:~$ sudo chmod 777 /mnt/ipod00:12
yoyit2 access denied??????00:12
AmpelbeinGigantic: correct.00:12
chuck_Gigantic, thats right00:12
Giganticaye00:12
Name141Ampelbein: Speaking of this, would finding a way to put Ubuntu on a flash drive be faster than the live CD/DVD disks ?00:12
Giganticty see ya00:12
sebsebsebGourlis: about the only true advantage 8.04  on the desktop has over  8.10 on the desktop, these days, is that KDE3 is in the repo :)00:12
Gourlissebsebseb, as I see 8.04 LTS. Versions which comes out after it are in beta actually until next LTS comes out.00:12
buakekaAnyone know the best program to backup my system as an image?00:12
sebsebsebGourlis: no00:12
sebsebsebGourlis: not at all00:12
AmpelbeinName141: defnitely is faster ( when using usb2.0)00:12
sm0k3di mean, how did you guys develop this elite flavour of linux?00:13
Name141Ampelbein: OK.  And I assume I can install, rather than just have it run LIVE?00:13
sm0k3dand why the name gentoo ?00:13
sebsebsebGourlis: and before a  180 months supported distro even comes out as a stable, it has gone through many development versions. let's take  9.04 for example.  6 alpha's,  1 or 2 betas,  a release candidate or 2, and then the final00:13

sebsebsebGourlis: by the way if Microsoft did software like  opensource/freesoftware   Windows 7 beta would really be the alpha, and the Windows 7 release candidate would really be the beta00:14

sebsebsebGourlis: take Firefox for example,  quite a few alphas, and then the betas, and rc's  and then final yeah,  well you get the idea now I think00:15
Gourlisyeah00:15
sebsebsebGourlis: commerical software they rush out new versions,  opensource/freesoftware goes through loads of testing before a final00:15
Name141Ampelbein: Alright, I'll check it out once I get the flash drive.00:15
th0rYanick_: I just plugged mine in to check, and it looks like it should be there. Did you actually see those lines appear in /var/log/messages AFTER you plugged in the drive or were they there when you first looked?00:15
Yanick_th0r, is it normal if I don't have any /dev/sdb1 file?00:16
Yanick_th0r, yes00:16

sebsebsebaleron6: not exactly sure, but if you  try to open them in a player,  then it will usually ask if you want to install the codec.  also you can  run  sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras  to take care of stuff like that00:45
funkyHatds_: that will give you a list of files that are part of the fglrx-amdcccle package which have "bin" somewhere in their path. One of those will probably be the one you need to run00:45

lstarnesyowshi1: which version of ubuntu are you using?00:53
RoastedANYWAY - Valkyrie - I work in tech support at a school district. I'd love to see an Ubuntu lab there... but I'm not too sure it'd be feasible. With the district being so allocated towards education, you need educational programs to aid that... and there's no denying there's more reading/math programs on Windows than Ubuntu,  unfortunately. So I think we'll remain a Windows client network. :(00:53

RoastedUntouchableMX - My old laptop had the RTL8187B and if I recall I just used the default network manager and it worked... but granted that was 8187B, not 8187... I have no clue waht the difference would be.00:58

UntouchableMXwell Im connected right now on windows using the card and its like 60%01:00
RoastedUntouchableMX - It could be that the driver for the RTL8187 that's coupled with Linux is just of poor quality that results in less of a signal range.01:01

sebsebsebnightdrever: I suggest trying Ubuntu forums01:01
RoastedThe LiveCD can install and run it without installing too.01:01
sebsebsebnightdrever: sign up and do a thread about your card there01:01
nightdreverive looked cant find away01:02

sebsebsebnightdrever: try 8.04 even,  since differnet xorgs01:02
nightdreveryes im on 9.0401:02
UntouchableMXdoes it make a difference because its a usb card01:02
MGrunde_Ampelbein, It's an LG L1770HQ.  I tried using xrandr and adding a modeline, but when I try to change to it, it gives me an error.01:03
sebsebsebtest: sounds like a possible failing hardware issue01:03
Flanneltr-ip: "with fresh install"?  What do you mean?  how would installation from the liveCD not be a fresh install?01:03
nightdreveri dont think it worked on 8.04 either01:03
AmpelbeinMGrunde: you don't happen to specify what error?01:03
Roastedtr-ip - I think you might be confused. When you boot to the LiveCD, you can actually use Linux and test it out. If you click install icon on the desktop, it installs Linux on your computer.. on your actual hard drive. That's how I awlays install LInux.01:03
MGrunde_Ampelbein, Also, just checked out the log from when I started in low graphics mode and the difference is that it's using Vesa, and for some reason the modes are discovered01:03

tyl3rHello. Running Jaunty with gnome on a dell studio xps16 with full hd 1920x1080....anyone has some good tips / links for font optimizing, especially in firefox ?01:06
Gnea!sudo | tr-ip01:06
ubottutr-ip: sudo 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)01:06
Flanneltr-ip: Ubuntu uses sudo.01:06
tyl3rI know this is an issue for many people and I read and try a lot but for firefox I cannot come to a decent solution01:06
AmpelbeinMGrunde: gtf should work anyway01:07
tyl3rsystem fonts are fine actually, but with full hd res, I cannot find any optimal font setting in firefox...01:07
TheMoonMastertyl3r: I am on an XPS m1130 and going to system->preferences->appearance and then going to the fonts section, choosing details and editing the DPI helps me01:07
TheMoonMastertyl3r: You install msttcorefonts?01:08
tyl3rTheMoonMaster: thx, how many dpi you have ? In general I would be happy with firefox looking fine on all pages....but for example ubuntuforums look great with one font, with the same font last.fm is ugly and overlaps etc...so hard to find a perfect solution01:08
TheMoonMasterI use 9601:08
tyl3rTheMoonMaster: yes installed corefonts01:08
MGrunde_Ampelbein, The error I get when I run "xrandr --output default --mode 1280x1024_60.00" (after adding that modeline using --newmode and --addmode) is "xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed"01:09
tyl3rTheMoonMaster: do you have option "allow websites to use own fonts" in firefox set?01:09
mobi-sheepI'd like to trim down the processes.... What do you suggest?  I'm looking at Startup Applications and bum (Boot Up Manager).  Most of the services does not have descriptions which render them useless to me.01:09

tr-ipso if I install kde using apt-get or install or whatever how would I make it load instead of gnome?01:09
pepperjackmobi-sheep: all the raid stuff can go unless you are using it. id just look in /etc/init.d and google for each script to see if you need it to run01:09
TheMoonMasterYes I do01:10
Flanneltr-ip: You'd install kubuntu-desktop (that'll give you kde).  And then at the login screen (gdm or kdm) you'd choose which you wanted under Sessions01:10

Flannelmobi-sheep: What do you mean?  Like man pages?01:11
=== Pikachu is now known as Guest15155
TheMoonMasterI'm on my netbook right now, so the sizes would be different, but the fonts are proportional -> serif, serif -> serif, sans-serif -> sans-serif, monospace -> monospace01:12
tyl3rTheMoonMaster: ok thx01:12
MGrunde_Ampelbein, Yeah, I probably will.  Everything seemed to work in Hardy though.  That's why I thought this would just be a quick fix.  Guess not.01:12
mobi-sheepFlannel: Take a look in System --> Preferences --> Startup Applications.  There are a list of services that have no description and I would like to know what their purposes is so I can trim down processes.01:12
TheMoonMasterOn here the sizes are all 901:12

chimera4uraylu: sure. I don't see any thing that has to do with caching there01:36

Bold`hello.. when I try to install ubuntu using wubi, it installs the the amd64 release insteade of the x86, I am having Intel E6550 CPU.. is this normal ?02:30
cemerickGhoti_: there are no passwords in /etc/passwd -- do you mean /etc/shadow?  Or, shouldn't we just do 'passwd -l username'?02:30
Ghoti_cemerick: I meant the latter02:30
petteeyes Bold`, that's normal and basically means the 64bit version02:31
cemerickGhoti_: OK, that makes more sense.  Is locking the password better, and still achieves the same goal?  Editing /etc/shadow doesn't seem like a good idea.02:32
Bold`pettee, is there any advantage of running the 64 version ? or disadvantage ?02:32

ubottuC-00000100: http://www.linuxtv.org/ has extensive information about using TV cards under Linux. Available viewers for analog cards: Zapping, tvtime (GTK/GNOME), Kaffeine, kdetv (KDE), xawtv, motv. For digital cards: Me-TV (GNOME), Klear (KDE), dvb-utils. For both analog and digital cards, !MythTV is a powerful framework. Your card may work the !IVTV drivers. See also !TV-Out02:32
Ghoti_cemerick: locking the password prevents that user from using a password to login to the system, but they should still be able to use public-key authenticated SSH to connect02:32
cemerickGhoti_: right, that's what I'm aiming for02:33

mrhlosher: what gets me is that I had been using bittorrent w/out a problem for months02:42
loshermrh: I know. I almost suspect your power supply. They are usually the first component to fail, and can lead to hangs etc.02:43

ubottuOkashi: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot04:44

macoR0b`, no, that's a run-once. i was just correcting how you use the "at" command. you want to use /etc/cron.daily/cronttab for daily stuff05:37
R0b`usr13, will the at repeat every day?05:37
R0b`oh05:38
R0b`ok05:38
usr13R0b`: Yes, if you use * for day of week and * for day of month.05:38
R0b`i'm so confused right now...05:38
R0b`grrr, and i'm not much of a terminal person05:38
macoR0b`, "man 5 crontab" to start05:38
R0b`i would rather do this by GUI, but what must be done must be done05:38
zirodayFUbbyCD: and the package you want to install is virtualbox-2.205:38
usr13R0b`: If you want monday thru friday you can use 1-505:38
FUbbyCDupdating snaptic right now05:38
R0b`so i could do 1-7 correct?05:38
R0b`i need this EVERY day05:39
R0b`lolz05:39
usr13R0b`: * for every day.05:39
ultratekbbiab05:39
FUbbyCDziroday05:39
usr13R0b`: Just designate time and * for all else05:40
zirodayyes FUbbyCD05:40
FUbbyCDziroday:  thanks so much.. now when i install this will it remove my xp installation05:40
FUbbyCDor just ose05:40
R0b`what if i want it to do this every hour05:40
R0b`can't i just do something with a timer?05:40
FUbbyCDbecause my xp installation is real important05:40
zirodayFUbbyCD: err it will most probably just remove virtualbox-ose05:40
R0b`like add a timer to the end of the script to make it run again an hour later?05:40
zirodayFUbbyCD: if its very important then make a backup of the VM05:40
usr13R0b`: You can run it every hour.05:40
FUbbyCDwell its not the xp installation just the vdi file05:41
mneptokR0b`: 22:40 < maco> R0b`, "man 5 crontab" to start05:41
lstarnesR0b`: that wouldn't be as efficient on resources if the script repeated itself, which is what cron/at are for05:41
usr13R0b`: You can run it every hour. Just use * for hour.05:41
R0b`kk05:41
R0b`oh05:41
FUbbyCDim like you i doubt it would remove the vdi05:41
macoR0b`, that manpage will explain it much better than we can in a channel full of other people chattering05:41
R0b`well BRB, i'll comeback if i need help05:41
zirodayFUbbyCD: yes, that's what I meant05:41

g0wdahello all, i'm on a live CD, trying to setup my sick 40GB HDD for fastest possible performance... in gparted sda2 branches into two partitions what does this mean??05:43
usr13dsnyders: Yes...05:44
trevorok so i got lxde running with a gnome base, and it is running unusually hot, hotter than gnome, it did this with mandriva too05:44
g0wdaalso how do i unmount linux swap partition05:44
g0wda?05:44
trevoranyone know a reason why possibly?05:44
arandg0wda: it is an extended partition...05:44
zirodayg0wda: sudo swapoff -a05:44
g0wdatryin :)05:44
usr13g0wda: shouldn't matter about the swap partition.05:45
R0b`ok ok05:45
R0b`so if05:45
R0b`i dump a shell file into /etc/cron.hourly05:45
R0b`will it run every hour?05:45
usr13g0wda: YOu can try swapoff05:45
usr13Create a script for /etc/cron.hourly yes.05:46
arandg0wda: since there are a limited amount of "top level partitions" one can use extended partitions to enable creation of basically infinite numbers of partitions although at each specific branch including the top level there can only be 5 of them05:46
panfisthow do i find the path of a launcher's current icon05:47
arandg0wda: sorry, that was incomprehensible...05:47
dsnydersR0b`,  Yes.  The system runs the scripts in cron.hourly every hour.05:47

songer this is my first time using ubuntu05:47

R0b`nice05:47

dsnydersR0b`, It depends on your crontab file.  Mine fires at 17 minutes past the hour05:48
arandg0wda: basically you can only have five partitions, but if one of these five are an extended one, you can have five partitons inside that partion... and so on...05:48

arandcoreyman: edit the file menu.lst in /boot/grub/menu.lst and remove any acpi-off references05:56
nevynis this a known problem? basically networkmanager is being used to start a ppp connection for a mobile broadband interface but it doesn't call /etc/ppp/ip-up when the link is established which means that ipmasq doesn't re-compute the iptables rules05:56

subbHey. Can I ask a question? I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.04. I've created a partition on my Windows 7 drive and installed Unbuntu there. Also, I've installed Grub this partition, so Windows 7's bootloader would chainload to Grub (with the help of EasyBCD). I get to the point where I can choose between 7 and Ubuntu.06:25
neer1it says Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode06:26
ed2effriendishan, k now extract that file to ~/.themes or /usr/share/themes(on this folder, u need to be root to do it)06:26
neer1and I cannot go throught06:26
mrynitneer1, what driver do you have in your xorg.conf/06:26
ShishKababHi. Is there some command line program like cp available that has a progress bar?06:26
subbHowever, it can't find the bootloader at  \NST\nst_grub-5612303F6575E99F46DCFEA8148BBB57.mbr06:26
friendishanok06:26
th0rShishKabab: not that I know of06:26
neer1mrynit: where to find xorg.conf06:27
ed2effriendishan, see if u clicking on the right mouse button on the theme, if there a option to extract, then extract it to ~/.themes06:27
mrynitneer1,  less /etc/X11/xorg.conf06:27
coreymanWhen I installed ubuntu I checked a free only option somehow, how do i disable that since I need to install nvidia drivers06:27
mrynitneer1, you have to be root to edit the file06:27
NvidiaUsersubb: I'm totally well kinda new to linux but EasyBCD and Grub are both boot loaders. Wouldn't you just need one?06:28
neer1mrynit: I have entered it06:28
mrynitcoreyman, in synaptic set the repos to include closed/proprietary sources. the find restricted kernel moduals/ drivers for nvidia06:28
losherShishKabab: you can use rsync to copy files, and it will show progress.06:28
neer1mrynit: now what to do?06:28
mrynitneer1,  look around for drivers and settings06:28
coreymanmrynit thx06:28
friendishaned2ef it says u do not have the right permissions to extarct in file://usr/share/themes06:28
mrynitcoreyman, i have no idea if that would work but it sounds like a good start06:29
friendishaned2ef it says u do not have the right permissions to extarct in file://usr/share/themes  eventhough i am the admin06:29
ed2effriendishan, what i told u?u need to be root to extract to this place, its better extract to ~/.themes06:29
neer1mrynit: there is no driver and settings inside06:29
subbNvidiaUser : mmm maybe, but I'm scared to screw up something by overriding the Windows 7 boot loader06:30
mrynitunder section device> driver06:30
friendishanwhere is ~/.themes ? ed2ef06:30
neer1under "device" there is no driver06:30
coreymanmrynit i think this is going to work, i just enabled for proprietary drivers.06:30
mrynitcoreyman, k. tell me if you get the drives06:30
neer1mrynit: there is no dirvers inside device06:31
ed2effriendishan, the location is "/home/<ur-user>/.themes" but u can type this location "~/.themes"06:31
Bob_DoleAt least prior to BCD(and probably still with) you HAD to have 2 boot loaders for the simple fact that Grub can't boot windows directly and nothing MS makes is going to be able to boot linux.06:31
ed2effriendishan, its the same thing06:31
coreymanmrynit its working.06:31
ed2effriendishan, as "$HOME/.themess"06:31
mrynitcoreyman, cool. know i konw how to install drivers :)06:31
friendishanok06:31
mrynitneer1, then you dont have any video drivers install so you cannot get gui06:32
ShishKabablosher: The last time I used rsync (with -rav switches) I didn't see a progress bar, but it showed which files it was copying (like with cp -v). I need to see per-file progress for copying big files, like with scp. Hey, maybe scp also works for local files!06:32

subbBob_Dole : thanks for reminding me that I'm not doing stupid stuff :)06:33
ed2effriendishan, maybe u need to create the folder .themes on your home dir, if is the case, go to your home dir(/home/your-user) and create a folder named ".themes" without the quotes06:33
neer1mrynit:06:33
coreymanmrynit thats only if you tick the free software only box.. i think proprietary drivers are enabled by default if you dont06:33

neer1mrynit: there are lot of controller06:43

g0wdawhat's the use of using one for boot? and it will only require 100mbs i guess ;)06:59
losherg0wda: I like 10G for root, double the ram size for swap, separate /home. I like to keep a spare 10G root partition also06:59
friendishanace ok thanks^^06:59
ed2efP4R41, u install the ubuntu using the wubi tool, right?06:59
pegonanyone know a tool that will tell me my motherboard and cpu temp ?06:59
notvcjacki know this has probably been asked a million times already and if someone could just point me to a link somewhere I would appreciate it, but I'm having issues with using Broadcom wifi in Jaunty06:59
P4R41i had before, now its formatted, but yes06:59
g0wdawell, i don't know what goes into root....   ???06:59
ay^g0wda: when it comes to sizes my installations usualy doesnt come any bigger than 20gb so thats my standard /06:59
lstarnesg0wda: everything07:00
ay^g0wda: everything you dont make special partition for07:00
mrynitjeevan, why do you think i know about that stuff?07:00
ed2efsee, the partition still a ntfs, wubi dont even touch that07:00
P4R41g0wda: one for /, one for /home, and one for swap being 2x your ram07:00
P4R41yeh, it sits on top of it07:00
ed2efbut he makes a disk image on ur partition07:00
ay^so if you dont make a /home or /boot, _everyhting_ goes into /07:00
sizablepegon, Try this http://www.bradtrupp.com/ubuntu-cpu-temperature.html07:00
ed2efand that image is using a linux file system07:00
ed2efnot ntfs07:00
ay^the above was for g0wda07:01
losherjyg_: there's a way to recover the windows booloader. Hopefully nothing else got trashed...07:01
g0wdai don't know wht /root is for but!07:01
P4R41ok, so how can i install to the partition if wubi is sitting on top of it07:01
ay^g0wda: root is "like" C: in windows-terms07:01
g0wdaog07:01
jyg_losher, i dont care about losing the windows boot loaders... i just hope that the beginning of the drive wasn't overwritten07:01
g0wdaoh07:01
ay^unless you specify otherwise you stuff will go there07:01
ed2efusing a disk image, its a pseudo-partition if u like to call it as this way07:01
ay^g0wda: ^07:02
jyg_(which is where the windows part resides)07:02
Lokendrahi god morning07:02
losherjyg_: if it chkdisks ok, you should be fine. If not, you're screwed I think...07:02
ed2efbut your ntfs partition is intact, it goes like a file on this partition07:02
jyg_losher, well 55% now, reinstall... guess I'll find out soon enough... the unbuntu install shoudl really assume that the boot loader is install in the /boot partition and if there is not one then in (root)/boot07:02
notvcjackanyone?07:02
g0wdabut all your stuff, like i've seen gets installed in usr/lib or usr/bin and config in /etc... where does /root come in? i don't understand07:02
Lokendrahow to install wireless driver07:03
ay^notvcjack: anyone what?07:03
Lokendrapls help me07:03
losherjyg_: Ubuntu is usually pretty good about detecting existing windows installs....07:03
ed2efthat's why a ubuntu(or any other distribution of gnu/linux0 installed via wubi is slow then a normal install type07:03
notvcjackheh, i think i have the same issue as lokendra, i'll repost...07:03
ay^g0wda: too is where usr, etc and other dirs gets put07:03
friendishanace i guess it's done thanks^^07:03
notvcjacki know this has probably been asked a million times already and if someone could just point me to a link somewhere I would appreciate it, but I'm having issues with using Broadcom wifi in Jaunty07:03
ACefriendishan no problem07:03
P4R41ed2ef: so can i install wubi into windows and use it to install to the other partition?07:04
g0wdayou mean */root is where all that comes??07:04
ay^g0wda: "root" is just a term for the first "folder" in you system, the root of your folders so to speak07:04
friendishanace what is smtp ?07:04
Lokendramy laptop mod no Dell Vostro A840 wireless driver not working07:04
g0wdaso by root do you  mean /root or just /07:04
g0wda??07:04
ay^just /07:04
mneptokg0wda: /root is the root users home directory07:04
ay^g0wda: ^07:04
ed2efP4R41, i think not, u could do it using a live cd, mounting the image somewhere then movin the files to a linux fisical partition07:04
Lokendraso pls how to install wireless driver07:05
ed2efP4R41, but i dont think it ll wokr07:05
ay^mneptok: no thats /home/root07:05
P4R41thats the issue, i cant access the live cd07:05

indushi folks07:06
P4R41i have my t-mobile g1 which can mount my spare 1gb microsd card as a pendrive, i just don't know how to boot from usb on my system or if its possible07:06
losherg0wda: it's not your fault. the term "root" has at least 3 different meanings: a) just /, b) the /root directory, c) the user who is allowed to do anything07:06
g0wdaso /root will be useless as a seperate partition?07:06
Lokendramy laptop mod no Dell Vostro A840 wireless driver not working07:06

ShazbotMcNasty#ubuntu......is it fatal?07:07
ed2efP4R41, if u plug the pen drive on ur computer, and reboot and enter on the bios, in the boot section07:07
Lokendraintel07:07
ay^g0wda: in your case, I would make a root partition (root as in just / ) and then a homepartition and swap07:07
ed2efthere's a option to boot from the usb²07:07
ed2ef?07:07
pegonLokendra, more specific please if not sure check lspci in terminal07:08
losherg0wda: pretty much. You really want just 3 partitions: /, /home & swap07:08
P4R41ed2ef: its not there. the bios and computer is old. dell 4500s07:08

ay^mneptok: you are indeed wise!07:09
P4R41yeh, that's my predicament. i was even considering resizing my windows partition to be 700mb smaller, installing wubi onto there and then using the install to install to the linux partition07:10

Lokendraok07:11
DanaGLots of modprobe'ing going on, too.  =þ07:11
losherjyg_: Someone asked that eariler today. Apparently there's not really. There's some customisation you can do in grub, i.e. colors & splash, but otherwise no.07:12
mneptokLokendra: most Intel chipsets Just Work(tm). why do you think you need to install a driver?07:12

neer1unlike 8.04 which was very stable and good07:16
notvcjackthere is nothing under wireless07:16
losherneer1: welcome to the club07:17
macoariqs, how many repositories do you have enabled? it downloads a list of what packages there are for each repository. if you have fewer repositories (example: if you are not a developer, disable source repositories) it'll take less time07:17
notvcjackand there is also nothing under hardware drivers either07:17
neer1losher: I have been stuck with it for the past 3 days07:17
macoariqs, it then compares the list it got to the one it already had to see if anything changed07:17

notvcjackoops.. 9.0407:19
neer1ziroday: can I connect to the internet from console though I doubt it is taking any drivers07:19
neer1ziroday: it doesn't take any drivers I think07:20
macoariqs, when you want to force it to check, you can do that in system -> administration -> software updates. i recommend doing that at least once a week, just to be safe with regard to security07:20
zirodayneer1: I have no idea what you're issues are07:20
zirodaynotvcjack: hmm, is b43-fwcutter installed?07:20
neer1ziroday: my issue is it says "couldn't allocate video memory" and07:20
neer1ziroday: I am stuck with the black screen without any gui07:21
zirodayneer1: what graphics card and driver?07:21
macoziroday, that shouldnt be needed in jaunty07:21
notvcjacknot sure actually... i'm posting this on my winxp partition cause there is no hardline in this damn hotel room07:21
neer1ziroday: intel 945 chipset I think07:21
macoziroday, er...i mean...in jaunty, you dont needd to get online and get firmware. it should work ootb07:21
zirodaymaco: oh, how come its still in the repo's then?07:21
zirodaynotvcjack: okay, well the other way to do it is through ndiswrapper07:21
macoziroday, i dont know HOW it does it, but without getting online, jockey can enable those wireless cards07:21
zirodaymaco: ah07:22
macoziroday, oh! nevermind07:22
=== am4zin is now known as amazin
macoziroday, i just remembered, some cards use b43, some use that special driver commissioned from broadcom. the latter dont need to get online07:22
zirodaymaco: okay07:22
neer1ziroday: would you be able to help me07:23
macoziroday, forgot my roommate has the "special" one...thats why she couldnt figure out wifi on fedora :P07:23
zirodaynotvcjack: right, well anyway. First (if not already) install the b43-fwcutter package. If that doesn't work you will need to use ndiswrapper https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper07:23
notvcjackyeah, i've tried that... i followed the instructions from here...https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Device/Broadcom_BCM4311_rev_01_(ndiswrapper)07:23

WindowSmasherEvening all!07:24
macoziroday, anything that doesnt work with b43 needs the special driver. that's why that driver exists.07:24
neer1ziroday: it says "failed to allocate framebuffer, Is your videoram set too low?"07:25
zirodaymaco: and that "special" driver is b43-fwcutter?07:25
WindowSmasherAnybody have any trouble with transmission (BT) downstream?07:25
macoziroday, no, b43 is the usual driver. there's some other name for the special thing.07:25
neer1ziroday: and also "couldn't allocate video memory"07:25
macoziroday, b43-fwcutter grabs the firmware while you are online with wired internet for the b43 driver07:25
macoziroday, the special thing doesnt need extra firmware downloads07:26
zirodayneer1: yes, I need those documents. You can do sudo apt-get install pastebinit and then use that to do pastebinit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and pastebinit /var/log/Xorg.0.log07:26
zirodaymaco: right, and then there are those broadcom cards that don't work under either?07:26
macoziroday, no. there's complete coverage, i believe07:26
notvcjackeh?  don't tell me that!07:26
zirodayneer1: remembering to pass us back the URL's07:26
notvcjackwhew!07:26
zirodaymaco: oh07:26
macoziroday, the point of the new driver from broadcom in intrepid is to cover everything that b43 doesn't07:27
macoziroday, dell forced broadcom's hand on it07:27
zirodaynotvcjack: well I would follow maco as I'm just following two year old forum posts :)07:27
notvcjackso I should use b43-fwcutter or ndiswrapper?  or just try one and if it doesn't work, try the other?07:27
zirodaymaco: makes sense07:27
macoziroday, i'm guessing they threatened to stop using broadcom if they didnt give proper linux support ;)07:27
maconotvcjack, it depends which broadcom you've got07:27
niblets_i have a problem trying to install tint2, anyone know why? http://crunchbanglinux.org/pastebin/25007:27
zirodayniblets_: you're using crunchbang?07:28
niblets_yes07:28
niblets_but its still ubuntu07:28
notvcjackmaco: I have this one - broadcom 1370 4324A-BRCM101607:28
maconotvcjack, i recommend just getting online with wired internet and using system -> administration -> hardware drivers, click enable on the wireless driver, and just let it do its thing. should be automated07:28
zirodayniblets_: we can't help you with unofficial ubuntu derivatives here. Sorry.07:28
notvcjackhmm... ok, when I get back home, I'll try that I guess07:28
maconotvcjack, jockey should know what to do based on which card it is07:28
niblets_its an ubuntu minimal install, with pretty stuff added, so its still ubuntu.07:28
simoncpuan ubuntu by any other name works as sweet07:29

macobullgard4, it means someone chose them 5-10 years ago and they cant change them because changing names on mixer elements screws things up on upgrades07:30
maconiblets_, we can just not answer you07:30

ariqsI kepe hearing that KDE is better, which makes me wonder. Why does ubuntu default to gnome?07:36
ziroday``y7: you can ask in #ubuntu-offtopic, but usually it results in some people getting very unhappy07:36

losher``y7: I would guess they are split 50-50 gnome & kde. You can't know which you'll like better until you try them07:37
zirodayfriendishan: just double click the package07:37

``y7i've got some questions about setting up the nics to run eth0 as my external ip and eth1 as my default router. how do i setup eth1 to point to eth0 for an internet connection? i'm using firestarter as my firewall service and i can't seem to figure it out. is this a firewall issue or a nic setup issue? i cannot ping out of eth1 when firestarter isn't running, so i was assuming a nic setup issue...?07:37
frankandbeanshi everyone07:37
swiftarrowHi all, Question:  I'm running Xubuntu 8.10.  I want to upgrade to Ubuntu (Gnome) 9.04.  I have the Desktop install CD.  Is it possible to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.04 via the CD?  Or do I have to do a complete re-install?07:38
neer1Ubuntu 9.04 sucks07:38
friendishanor shud i not install it07:38
Ghoti_``y7: if eth1 is getting an internet address through DHCP, your WAN traffic should pass to it automagically even if you get another, LAN, address on eth007:38
macolosher, gnome is much more popular since it's default07:38
ariqsziroday: if they were treated fairly, it'd be gubuntu and kubuntu07:38
neer1swiftarrow: believe me 9.04 is not at all good07:38
swiftarrowneer1, why do you say so?07:39
zirodayariqs: not getting into that here07:39
macoariqs, kubuntu didnt exist at first, that's why ubuntu doesnt have the g07:39
Cirosneer1:  once you get the weirdness ironed out 9.04 isnt bad at all.07:39
coreyman1What's a good article for laptop power saving?07:39
frankandbeansi have a tint2 question07:39
``y7Ghoti_: eth1 can never ping out to google.com. eth0 has the external ip address. starting firestarter doesn't help eth1 ping out. is this a nic setup issue or a firewall issue?07:39
friendishanneerl i think i won't upgrade then07:39
macoariqs, ubuntu was the original, then kubuntu was a community project that canonical decided to hire Riddell to work on. they didnt want to change Ubuntu's name later07:39
Ghoti_swiftarrow: you could probably do your dist-upgrade within Xubuntu, then apt-get install ubuntu-desktop to get gnome, and once that's live, apt-get remove xubuntu-desktop07:39
maconeer1, it all depends on your specific hardware07:39
loshermaco: I would have thought so, but people (sometimes strongly) deny it, there's seem to be no authoritative figures, and not everyone runs Ubuntu07:39
``y7in other words, if my firewall isn't running, should eth1 be able to ping google.com through eth0?07:40
zirodaycoreyman1: lesswatts.org and using powertop07:40
maconeer1, in my case, 9.04 is great because it doesnt crash constantly like 8.04 did07:40
swiftarrowGhoti_, I'm kinda confused whether that would install all the packages that would come with 9.04?07:40
Ghoti_``y7: do you mean another PC on your LAN connected to eth1?07:40
NvidiaUserI agree with maco07:40
macoGhoti_, that wnt remove xfce07:40
Cirosthe only issue i had/have with 9.04 is needing to keep the 8.10 back ports07:40
maconeer1, but then, my wireless card was poorly supported in 8.04 and 8.1007:40
Ghoti_swiftarrow: as I understand it, the {,x,k}ubuntu-desktop metapackages are the main difference between the various flavors07:41
macolosher, Linux Journal's pools for popularity always have gnome more popular than kde07:41
friendishanis it good that i upgrade my ubuntu 8.10 to 9.04 ?07:41
``y7Ghoti_, 1 pc, two nics. eth0 has an external ip, eth1 has an internal ip. i cannot ping google.com with no firewall running. Do i have to have a firewall running in order to ping google.com with my eth1 controller?07:41
NvidiaUserI haven't had any problems so far with 9.0407:41
swiftarrowGhoti_ ok, thanks for your help.07:41
Ghoti_I have ubuntu, and I could make it kubuntu with apt-get install kubuntu-desktop.  IIRC.07:41
