Severian_jefinc, but, that won't put the dependancies back00:22
=== thelaugh2ngmime is now known as The-Mime
jefincit is removing 284 packages...00:22
ZykoticK9thelaugh2ngmime, it's the "security = user", for WIDE open and working sharing you could try "security = share" and research that00:22
Severian_jefinc, can you get a list of the packages?00:22
jefincSeverian_: yes I think I'll be able to00:23
aadityajefinc: can you say no to the removal confirmation?00:23
Knyteugh this LiveCD asking for a password is rackin my brain lol00:24
Severian_jefinc, then in a text editor, you can construct a command to put them back.    sudo apt-get install pack1 pack2 pack3    The whole line can be 16380 characters long.  If it goes longer, break it into two commands.00:24
ZykoticK9Knyte, what version of LiveCD are you using?  the default cd does NOT ask for any passwords.00:25
hamburglarwhy do so many professors in universities use MACS  ?00:25
aadityaKnyte: where did you get the liveCD?00:25
Severian_jefinc, I know 16380 is not the actual number.  I always round it down a bit.  I don't usually want commands the absolute max length unless I have to.00:25

The-Mimesorry i changed my nick00:27
Severian_aaditya, jefinc definitely say no to the removal if you can.  I understood from your message that it has already happened00:27
ZykoticK9The-Mime, i think you now need some sort of share specified inside the config file - sorry man you gotta google some of this00:28
aadityaSeverian_: i thought so too. wouldn't removing that package name gnome unusable?00:28

ZykoticK9The-Mime, i'm booting my samba server to read the config 1 sec00:29

etotheipiWindowsXP Uptime: 5hrs 23mins 57secs Best: 6wks 3days 9hrs 11mins 54secs00:31
Severian_aaditya, jefinc that's probably a good idea to get the desktop back.  But, still build the list and reinstall everything.  Things other than the desktop were probably broken.  Ubuntu uses Python for a bunch of tools.  That is one thing I like about Ubuntu.  Not the only thing, but one thing.00:31

ajhtiredwolfZykoticK9, few problemsn though, it doesnt seem to slow down performance, and it is making it difficult to cycle between windows, i think it can be fixed by replacing the normal start compiz command with that instead00:36

dgh1973Artichoke200, assuming you mean a job as a linux sysop?00:47
neurobuntu_does anybody know if umask set on a user or directory level?00:47
eseven73dgh1973, I think he meant channel operator00:47
KnyteI did.. it said Sorry try again lol00:47
dgh1973eseven73, heh doh00:47
elitecoderI never heard the words channel op and job in the same sentence before.00:47
dgh1973neurobuntu_, should be user level00:48
zach74i had no idea about pastebin, lol00:48
zach74sorry everybody00:48
dgh1973neurobuntu_, you can specify default umask settings in your profile IIRC00:48
dgh1973neurobuntu_, example explanation here http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/understanding-linux-unix-umask-value-usage.html00:49
aadityaKnyte: full output, please00:49
Knytejust tried hittin enter(leaving it blank) and got - ubuntu is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.00:49
Knytethe first time atempting to change the pw it returned this: Sorry, try again.00:50
aadityaKnyte: how did you boot from the image? burned it to a CD?00:50
Knyteburned to CD via windows/infra recorder00:51
neurobuntu_does anyone here know how to use setuid/gid?00:51
dgh1973zach74, looks like you need to try "dpkg -r language-pack-gnome-en-base language-pack-gnome-en" to get around that00:51
aadityaKnyte: could you point us to the source of the CD?00:51
dgh1973neurobuntu_, somewhat, though relying on it too much can make a system less secure in some ways00:52
rulerhow to put a password for a folder00:52
dgh1973neurobuntu_, usually sudo is the preferred method of getting stuff done as the big guy00:52

neurobuntu_dgh1973, what I'm trying to do is make it so any file created under a folder inherits the ownership of the parent folder00:53
dgh1973ruler, not possible, but truecrypt or something like that can encrypt folders for you00:53

zach74could i just remove the language pack?00:54
FloodBot2erickrauda: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.00:54
dgh1973neurobuntu_, interesting... you can set a specific umask at the user level, but that doesn't really look at parent dirs, you have a process in place for the file creation? I.e. you can do this with a program to read parent perms and write file accordingly00:54
d00000deanyone knows how to use dvb-s with totam or/and vlc? (btw, please dont suggest kaffeine, its too bloated for me) thanx!00:54
neurobuntu_dgh1973, umask only handles the file permissions not the file ownership00:54
aadityaKnyte: reboot the system and instead of booting from the liveCD, choose the "install" option from the boot menu directly00:55
dgh1973neurobuntu_, other than that, there MIGHT be some low level file manipulation commands that can do this, not sure00:55
Knytenot really an option as i don't havea  ps/2 keyboard here..00:55

neurobuntu_dgh1973, i've been told by people that setuid/gid can do it....   I have a media folder (pictures, music, etc..) that I want to share between two users, so I created a group added them both to the group. Then when either users adds files to the folder they are both the owner and the group I'd like to automate it so that when files/folders are added the joint group is used by default not the users group... but I want this to hap00:56
bjornhvgotcodes: the path is usually setup in .bashrc in your home directory00:56
neurobuntu_pen only for this specific folder00:56

hvgotcodesshould i just do export path=newstuff:$PATH?00:57
Jack_SparrowGetting a script to run at boot before login: Put it in you ~/.bashrc. Something like: export PATH=$PATH:~/bin ...00:57
dgh1973ruler, also try "apt-cache search crypt" for other possibilities00:57

ZykoticK9hvgotcodes, sorry man the path variable is actually in the .profile file00:59
bjornhvgotcodes: i'm not sure, probably it should. However setting that up will be the same (.bashrc is just a shell script executed on login - you can write anything there that goes into the shell)00:59
neurobuntu_dgh1973, all I can find about setuid on the tubes is that it is used to let users run executables as root but nothing like what I am doing00:59

rulerdgh1973 what is that01:06
aadityadgh1973: LOL nice01:06
bjornhvgotcodes: try ' /usr/lib/jamvm/'01:06
rulerdgh1973 i cant understand01:06
Guest75616well i'll try it agian01:06
Guest75616so how do i access it?01:07
neurobuntu_usser, dgh1973 so I set my umask to 0002 and run  chmod g+s <parent dir> and that will do it?01:07
Severiann00b871, seo is done for a web server, not an OS.  I don't use those tools, since I don't think they are really on the up and up, but I know what they accomplish.01:07
hvgotcodesbjorn,  /usr/bin/java -> /etc/alternatives/java01:07
dgh1973ruler, but in all seriousness, if it's a boot sector virus you'll need to clean that up before installing a new os, but it should not effect ubuntu directly in most cases (there are linux viruses out there but so rare as to be non-existent)01:07
dgh1973neurobuntu_, I think so, you can "sudo su - testuser" and write some files and see01:08
Artichoke200Guest75616: Go to boot options01:08
Artichoke200Guest75616: And run it01:08
Jack_Sparrowdgh1973 sudo su  is a bad idea01:08
bjornhvgotcodes: yep that is true for my setup, but some googeling gave that the dir. of interest would be found by locate /rt.jar01:08

ZzeissAnybody who is running Ubuntu on a Macbook Unibody, please msg me!  I am trying to debug a Bluetooth issue.01:26
foolzhmm... my friend gave me several PNG images to include on a website I am creating for him, and they do not appear in IE6... you think they could have transparent parts without me realizing it?01:26
|PiP|ive got 2 girls that i want to get them start using computers but don't want to buy new computers for them. can they use some sort of terminal service to connect to my computer?01:26
|PiP|i was looking at PXE but am unsure what I should be looking at01:26
Zzeiss|PiP|: How old are they?01:27
Joesephraylu: hahahaha.... it went through the whole install just fine....01:27
Haze420Where do I have to go to change the permissions on my DVD-ROM drive mount from Read-Only to Write..?01:27
|PiP|Zzeiss: i want to be able to customize their desktop, pick the programs they can use, etc01:27
Zzeiss|PiP|: Well, that's about the right age for a OLPC.     And you'd still need a computerish device to connect to yours...01:28

ZykoticK9Haze420, it doesn't really work like that.  what are you having problems with?01:28
raylu!pt | fredo01:28
ubottufredo: Por favor, use #ubuntu-br para ajuda em português. Para a comunidade local portuguêsa, #ubuntu-pt. Obrigado.01:29
Severianfoolz, maybe.  I am sorry I can't be more definite.  I don't run any IE newer than 5.5  And, I have not run that in a while.  So, I am going from memory.  If you are displaying the pngs in IE, then trust your eyes.  Convert them to jpegs if you need ie support.01:29
|PiP|Zzeiss: i have a couple of old machines. i'd rather it be a full-size desktop01:29
|PiP|Zzeiss: connected through some sort of limited terminal service that they turn on01:29
ed_debian|PiP|, What you are talking about is the old model of a network with a mainframe.  Just a mouse, monitor and keyboard are at the desk.  There are several workstations like this and they all connect to the mainframe (your serer)01:29
xxiaothis is strange, suddenly when i login to ubuntu 8.04, it sometimes uses my pc speaker instead of desk speaker for the audio, i did blacklist-ed pcsspkr already01:29
Zzeiss|PiP|: So?  What's the problem then?  You clearly already have an ubuntu disk.  Why not just take off apps till it is what you want them to have?01:29
foolzseverian, thanks for the help01:29
kentbHaze420, the ROM in DVD-ROM should be a clue...01:30
xxiaowhy ubuntu switches my audio device to internal speaker?01:30

|PiP|http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition/technologies/ltsp   is this any good?01:32
ZykoticK9xiamx, chm files are basically just html files - there isn't an easy way to just convert that to a page layout (ie pdf)01:33
Severian|PiP|, There are several options you have.  You could go the LTSP route that you suggested at first.  That does not need much hardware on their machines, but it needs to be the right hardware.  LTSP is not easy to setup, but it works well on supported hardware.01:33
=== bk is now known as bk|away
|PiP|Severian: what hardware is supported?01:34
|PiP|Severian: and what other options do I have?01:34
xiamxZykoticK9, some of chm files contain images though01:34
mib_x15lmacbhey guys, what can i use to capture my desktop as video?01:35
Severian|PiP|, Look for the LTST website for details.  I am still trying to find a simple list of supported hardware.  No luck yet.01:35
JoesephOut of curiosity...... The wg111t not having 'plug and play' in jaunty...... is that Netgear's fault, or Ubuntu's fault?01:35
Severian|PiP|, option 2 would be a minimal setup with a NoMachine client on each of their machines.  (or VNC, but it is slower)01:36
Jack_SparrowJoeseph Netgear, as they should provide proper drivers or open code so we can adjust as needed01:36
ZykoticK9xiamx, i'm sure it's possible - probably just not easy01:37
Severian|PiP|, Option three would be to roll your own minimal setup and have it connect to your computer to run X.  Option 4 would be to setup a good firewall/NAT with Dan's Guardian on it and then run their machines as normal desktops.01:37
JoesephJack_Sparrow: So, is the 'plug and play' capabilities of the 'wg111' (as opposed to the 'wg111t') are a result of Netgear, and not ubuntu?01:37
mib_x15lmacbwhat can i use to capture my desktop as video?01:38
|ntegra|xiamx: as far as these guys http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/linux-applications/51651-html-pdf-converter.html say :: all you have to do is open the cfm in oOo.2 and up, and then save it as pdf01:38
ZykoticK9mib_j4182xi0, gtk-recordmydesktop and istanbul are screencasting software in the ubuntu repo01:38

mib_x15lmacbZykoticK9: ok thanks bro01:39
slimsorry my charset is ok?01:39
Severianmib_j4182xi0, and ffmeg can be used to capture the desktop.  I screencaster I know gets his best results that way.01:39
ReeferWhat is the difference between ubuntu desktop addition and server addition?01:39
Severianmib_j4182xi0, That should have been ffmpeg01:39
|PiP|thanks Severian, good information. now i know what to look at01:39
Jack_SparrowReefer server has no gui01:40
|PiP|btw what is PXE used for?01:40
ZykoticK9Reefer, for 1 server doesn't have a GUI Graphic User Interface01:40

mram50hello folks..is there a way to migrate the data i have on a debian machine to ubuntu on the same machine with a new, clean partition? Doesn't seem like i should be able to do that, but something in the documentation seems to suggest it's possible01:41
Jack_SparrowReefer It tells that on the ubuntu site for each of the versions ubuntu, kubuntu xubuntu01:41
loshertpw_rules_: yep. looks like something ran out of disk space there...01:41
ZykoticK9Reefer, anything you can do with server you can do with desktop!  so to start out desktop is MUCH easier to get going!01:41

loshermram50: it's spread over few different places. Bookmarks are generally in /home/<user>. Usernames & passwords in /etc/passwd & /etc/shadow, email accounts - depends on what you've been using. In general, if you back up everything in /etc and /home you'll have it all, but you might have to dig around for what you want. You can just copy /etc from one OS to another....01:46

gregJack, sorry i violated your sensibilities, do you go out after four pm?01:53
SeverianReefer, the normal Ubuntu download is a CDR.  There is a DVD version, but if it is under 700 meg, it is a CDR.01:53
loshermram50: I have it down to something of an art these days: about 17 files from /etc plus everything in /home. The real problem going between OSes is that you can't be sure the file formats will be identical. Going from debian to ubuntu they'll be close, but close doesn't really cut it...01:53

zombie-roboti tried uninstalling flash-nonfree and putting http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-
zombie-robotthat file in the FF/plugins folder and flash works but not the megauploader02:07
PixelsJack_Sparrow, if I create another user, and run firefox in there and it gets hosed or something happens, will it infect or affect the OTHER main user?02:08
PixelsSeverian, think so02:08
rayluBradj47: sorry, i don't see messages without my name in them usually. i'll take a look02:08
Jack_Sparrowzombie-robot so this is a FF plugin issue right..02:08
mram50i think I fried my cd burner...it's been acting kind of strange of later.. i think my dog decided to stick her snoot in it.02:08
Bradj47lol ok thanks02:08
loshermram50: osh, losh, losher. Whatever. If your burner dies, there's a workaround, http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/ . Warning, I've never actually tried this myself...02:08

PixelsJack_Sparrow, in other words.. if I add a user and he stuffs everything up and gets "hosed" and visits infected websites etc... will it infect, affect and hose my main user account?02:09
zombie-robotit doesnt work in any other browser or with the nonfree02:09
rayluBradj47: how was it "mounted?" is it in the output of "mount"? also, "sudo invoke-rc.d dbus restart" may help, though that'll probably restart x02:09
ubottuPor favor, use #ubuntu-br para ajuda em português. Obrigado.02:09

mram50hmm.. I'll take a looksee02:09
ubottuunifest: please see above02:09
Jack_SparrowPixels No your account should be safe, a reinstall of FF would be about the worst case02:09
PixelsJack_Sparrow, or does what he does STAY in his home?02:09
Bradj47raylu: i clicked on 'connect to server' under the 'Places' menu and had it add as a bookmark and it mounted when i clicked on the bookmark02:10
Jack_SparrowPixels HE is kept in his home, yes02:10
Bradj47raylu: where's the output of 'mount' is that a directory somewhere?02:10
BeatlesFanhey, I need your guys help...02:10
loshermram50: Burners fail eventually, Given the precision required for burning, it's a wonder they last as long as they do. If you use unetbootin, come back & let us know how it went02:10
PixelsJack_Sparrow, if I create another user, and run firefox in there and it gets hosed or something happens, will it infect or affect the OTHER main user?02:10
Jack_SparrowPixels  it should not..02:10
PixelsJack_Sparrow, in other words.. if I add a user and he stuffs everything up and gets "hosed" and visits infected websites etc... will it infect, affect and hose my main user account?02:10
zombie-robotso the megaupload flash uploader doent work in ubuntu?02:11
rayluBradj47: the command "mount", in a terminal02:11
PixelsJack_Sparrow, or does what he does STAY in his home?02:11
mram50That requires a usb drive. like a pen drive or something similar?02:11

Bradj47raylu: no, i don't see it in that list.02:12
BeatlesFanI heard on here the other night that the new Ubuntu will not support Nvidia 6 and earlier, is that true?02:12
mram50I guess if my burner is screwed i can always go upload stuff to a server somewhere..do what i gotta do then redownload it like the old days of emailing everything to myself LOL02:12
rayluBradj47: what's the path to the actual ftp "mountpoint"?02:12
harpreet_BeatlesFan: no02:12
rayluBradj47: as in, what appears in your location bar?02:12
PixelsJack_Sparrow, so I can add a user and be confident that whatevr he does wont infect or affect my user admin account?02:12
loshermram50: there's an option to download an iso and boot directly from it, as I understand...02:12
Jack_SparrowBeatlesFan the 6600 are very popular, I doubt they would drop support for them02:13
Jack_SparrowPixels YEs.02:13
harpreet_Pixels: yes02:13
BeatlesFanharpreet, so if I install an geforce 6200 or 6600 in my PC I'll be ok for the foreseeable future?02:13
PixelsHaraken, ty02:13
Jack_SparrowBeatlesFan I hope so , I have several in use now02:13
PixelsJack_Sparrow, thanks ;)02:13
HarakenPixels, np02:13
mram50makes sense.. if it can be run from a cd tray i don't see why it can't boot from... wait a sec.. this i need to think over LOL02:13
harpreet_BeatlesFan: i just built a computer , one minute ago with 6600, if the card doesnt work you can always load a driver or edit xorg.conf02:14
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.02:14

Jack_SparrowBeatlesFan the 6600 pic or any agp pci-e should be fine02:14
SeverianBeatlesFan, I can forsee a future when that card will no longer be supported.  It is post-singularity and 30 years or more away.02:14

Jack_SparrowSamus_Aran Upgrading after EOL is NOT the same02:24

SeverianSamus_Aran, If you go to the System Menus/Administration/ do you see update manager?02:25
raylusica: you could try moving your .gnome, .gnome2, or .gconf directories, but i'm not really sure02:25
zombie-robotyea no Sh**02:25
zombie-robotits still supported02:25

iurii just installed and the icon systray is turned off02:29
Jack_Sparrowfallore sudo fdisk -l will help02:29
BeatlesFanfallore, root partition will mount to "/"02:29
iurii believe it needs to install something02:29
BeatlesFanfallore, look in gpart, you will see it02:29
SeverianSamus_Aran, then the sudo apt-get install update-manager  is your next step.02:29
funkyHatBeatlesFan: that's not much help, he can't boot from it at the moment so partitions won't be mounted in the normal places02:30
Samus_AranfunkyHat: update-manager was not installed, installing it now.  very stupid that all the guides say to install update-manager-core, which provides nothing, but not update-manager02:30
tritiumSamus_Aran: update-manager is installed by default.02:30
Jack_SparrowfunkyHat gparted will show him what he needs02:30
funkyHatSamus_Aran: odd, saying to install update-manager-core is pretty stupid, as installing update-manager will install everything it needs02:30

SeverianIamSOG, don't use ext4 on any important machine.  It can become corrupted.02:32

funkyHatSamus_Aran: try the full path /usr/bin/do-release-update02:33

fallorei need help following these intructions: determine the root partition of your linux system, then mount it "dev" option enabled, with write permissions. If the filesystem isn't mounted you'll need to mount it like this (be sure to change "hda1" and "hda" to match the root location/device in your own system): sudo mount -o dev,rw /mnt/hda102:39

coz_BeatlesFan, oh man it wasnt agp?02:41
pasteeaterWhy do Debian (Exim) and Ubuntu (Postfix) use different default MTAs?02:42
BeatlesFancoz_: becuase my mb spec says there's an AGP but when you open the case and actually look at the board - no AGP slot!!02:42
losherJoshuaP0x: no, losher like nosher/posher. JoshuaP0x like chicken-pox ?02:42

BeatlesFancoz_: ok...02:44
coz_hclhdj,  what is vidalia ...while I google :)02:44
geofftraylu: yeah, I see that, but that's not signed. that's just an md5sum02:45
raylugeofft: oh, signed02:45
raylugeofft: heh, i'm a step behind today02:45
coz_hclhdj,  did you download the source tar ball?02:45
hclhdjcoz_: i see the "install" file ,but ..02:45
hclhdjcoz_: yes, i download02:45
raylugeofft: you could mention it to #ubuntu-dev02:45
coz_hclhdj,  ok  open a terminal  and cd to the location of that extracted pacakge and then cd into it02:46
loshergeofft: raylu: signed is kinda overkill. md5sum is quite adequate for most purposes...02:46
zaccouris there a safe way to remove evolution?02:46

coz_hclhdj,  yes then cd  build02:47
hclhdjcoz_: ok02:47
coz_hclhdj,   then type     cmake ..02:47
crdlbzaccour: it is reasonably safe to uninstall evolution as long as you install ubuntu-desktop again before you upgrade to a new release (which will restore evolution)02:47
coz_hclhdj,   remember the two dots though02:47
coz_hclhdj,  this is coded in C++02:47
coz_hclhdj,   so   cmake ..02:47
hclhdjcoz_: wait02:47
LoganhoupStressing pulseaudio by playing almost any type of sound for a period of time will crash and anything I play from then on will hang and skip. Oddly enough, it also seems to kill my internet connection with it. Yet wicd stills shows it is connected. The only way I can to find to fix it is to restart my system. If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.02:47
harpreet_crdlb: thats a good idea, this way he will get newest packages02:47
hclhdjcoz_: no "cmake".........02:48
boss_mcLoganhoup: you probably want to ask in #pulseaudio they're the devs02:48
harpreet_Loganhoup: it is intel based system , right?02:48
coz_hclhdj,   sudo apt-get install cmake02:48
Loganhoupharpreet: no02:48
Loganhoupharpreet: It's an ATI chipset02:48

Loganhouplosher: yes02:49
fallorelosher: yes i still need help02:49
coz_hclhdj,  then run   cmake ..02:49
harpreet_logankoester: atis are hard in linux, anytime i make a system i make sure i dont see ati on mobo,02:49

bastid_raZorcoz_, hclhdj wouldn't installing build-essential have all the required tools he needs?02:49
coz_bastid_raZor,   all but cmake02:50
coz_hclhdj,   then run  make02:50
boss_mcHow does Loganhoup's graphics chipset effect his pulseaudio setup?02:50
bastid_raZorcoz_, ah, didn't know that it did not include cmake02:50
coz_hclhdj,  if you want to install this then run   sudo make install02:50
losherfallore: Remind me: You lost your boot block after installing windows after Ubuntu & wanted to restore it using Knoppix live ?02:50
Loganhouplosher: I have and I have posted in the perfect setup thread on the ubuntu forums. I have received no help from google. Do not assume I have not researched this before asking here.02:50

losherLoganhoup: I;ve lost count of the number of people on here with 9.04 sound problems since it came out. No one solution seems to fix them all. I know there are a bazillion pages about things to try. One of them may work for you, or it may not...02:52

GimliGliderharpreet_ what's wrong is it doesn't make money02:52

GimliGlidershut up noob02:52
harpreet_GimliGlider: it does make money02:52
coz_hclhdj,  on element would be   sudo apt-get install qt4-qmake02:52
GimliGliderno it doens't u idiot02:52
boss_mclosher: most problems are in part due to ubuntu using pulse but not installing paman by default...02:52

coz_hclhdj,  one is   sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev02:56
losherfallore: ok. does 'df -h' show a disk is mounted?02:57
bpunlosher, "whatis df"02:57
bpunlosher, the mount command shows mountpoints mounted02:57
byerleyHi, I'm trying to install mysql-server on ubuntu 8.04. I'm unable to start it and I'm not sure why. Syslog gives me http://pastebin.com/m6770217f02:58
coz_hclhdj,  ok yeah   sudo apt-get install libqt4-dev  should take care of all dependencies02:58
losherbpun: either should work ok02:58
fallorelosher: /dev/hdd seems to be the only thing that looks like a mounted disk, though there are ~10 entries02:58
coz_hclhdj,  once you install those   run    cmake ..02:58
bpunlosher, df doesn't show the mountpoints02:58
coz_hclhdj,   then make02:58
coz_hclhdj,   then  sudo make install02:58
bpunlosher, no.02:58
fallorecare to suggest an alternative, bpun?02:59
hclhdjcoz_: yes! thank you,i test it02:59
losherbpun: my df shows mount points...02:59
fallorelosher: bpun: fdisk /dev/sda   and then p was suggested to me earlier02:59
coz_now I have to figure out what this vidalia is other than an onion :)02:59
bpunfallore, ah.. well i have no idea who's asking what.. df has nothing to do with mountpoints02:59
zaccourwhats the difference between ubuntu-desktop and gnome-desktop?03:00
tesseracteri want to connect to my uncles ubuntu desktop from my ubuntu desktop. whats the easiest server-side setup for this?03:00
fallorewell, bpun, i'm trying to do this: determine the root partition of your linux system, then mount it "dev" option enabled, with write permissions. If the filesystem isn't mounted you'll need to mount it like this (be sure to change "hda1" and "hda" to match the root location/device in your own system):03:00
bpunzaccour, ubuntu uses gnome as its default desktop03:00
bpunzaccour, (gdm service runs)03:00
bpunzaccour, gdm is the login default..03:01
losherfallore: if your disks are named /dev/hd then you'll need instead: fdisk -l /dev/hda03:01
bastid_raZor!ssh > tesseracter03:01
ubottutesseracter, please see my private message03:01
zaccourbpun but they look different, is ubuntu desktop just a modified gnome?03:01
bpunzaccour, (gdm compares to kdm.. but who cares.. gnome the default desktop is available on ubuntu)03:01
m1chaeldoes anyone know of a way i can run a script like.. "./scan blahhblahblah" and have the script scan whatever is in the scanner and save the file as blahblahblah.jpg ???03:01
bpunzaccour, i guess all distros tweak the default loading applets that load on the taskbar..03:01
fallorelosher: that command doesn't do anything (afaik)03:01
zaccourbpun oh ok thanks03:02

tesseracterbastid_raZor, i want the desktop, not command line--i need to show him how to do stuff. i can use ssh to get that stuff ready, i suppose.03:02
bpunzaccour, the default browser should be nautilus.. if u click about on the file manager menu..03:02
coz_hclhdj, here is an ubuntu how to  other than actually doing what we did   http://onlyubuntu.blogspot.com/2008/03/howto-setup-vidalia-tor-gui-with-ubuntu.html03:02
zaccourbpun whats nautilus?03:02
coz_hclhdj,  by the way  cmake is going to take a bit of time to complete03:02
bpunzaccour, if its konqueror..(clicking on a home icon frmo the desktop, or clicking home from somewhere in a start menu--) then its kde03:03
bpunzaccour, name for the local file browser..03:03
fallorelosher: i'd like you to help as long as you don't mind. i was just trying to explain to him what we were doing.03:03
bpunzaccour, like konqueror is for the kde desktop03:03
hclhdjcoz_: i go to see you give me the site03:03
bpunzaccour, konqueror or nautilus >> windows_explorer03:03
coz_hclhdj,  that is an old site03:03
bastid_raZortesseracter, vnc may be something to look in to. not sure if you will both see the same desktop at the same time03:03
coz_hclhdj,   I just noticed that so it may be out of date03:03
hclhdjcoz_: can't going to.......03:04
losherfallore: ok. first we need to find out what disks knoppix thinks you have. Try 'dmesg | egrep hd' and see what it says03:04
coz_hclhdj,  did you do make install yet?03:04
wireaperjust figured out how to get irc working03:04
wireaperonly took me 20mins!03:04

wireaperhow do you see the userlist03:05
coz_hclhdj,    guess what?03:05
wireaperim on xchat-gnome03:05
bastid_raZortesseracter, if you read up on the ssh page you'll see X forwarding.  not sure if that'll show you both the same desktop either.. i'm assuming that is what you want. something you can control his desktop remotely while he watches03:05
coz_hclhdj,   sudo apt-get install vidalia03:05
bpunh4mx0r, cd to home a mkdir "Desktop"03:05
coz_hclhdj,  and you are done03:06
h4mx0rbpun: I did that but its not accepting it03:06
wireapernvm, figured it out03:06
coz_hclhdj,  delte the source tarball03:06
coz_hclhdj,   and just do   sudo apt-get install vidalia03:06
geoffth4mx0r, have you logged out and back in?03:06
losherfallore: I only see the CD drive. Try 'dmesg | more' and look for something that looks like a hard drive...03:06
jribh4mx0r: you'll need to update ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs03:06
h4mx0rbpun: geofft will try03:06
bpunh4mx0r, dunno.. logout then in ?03:06
Gourliswhat ubuntu does when it says a NOTICE at startup UNCLEAN SHUTDOWN ?03:06
bpunh4mx0r, if it still fails.. try using gconfedit or sommthing03:07
fallorenothing, losher. would a live cd necessarily show those things?03:07
h4mx0rjrib: that directory doesn't exist so gonna try relogging03:07
bpunGourlis, it does a fsck ?03:07
geoffth4mx0r, the desktop window will use ~/Desktop if it existed when it started, otherwise ~03:07
harpreet_Gourlis: that means you shut it down without proper procedure03:07
Gourlisbpun, what's fsck ?03:07
bpunGourlis, filesystem check03:08
losherfallore: yes, when it boots, it probes all the devices. There should be an entry that shows it saw your hard drive03:08
hclhdjcoz_: ok , i test it03:08
coz_hclhdj,  but you still have to install Tor03:08
h4mx0rlogging out then back in did solve the problem, thanks03:08

Kana-nanowow, this is why i asked if anyone had a minute. asking did nothing03:58
dignanwith vmware you can, i don't know about vbox.. odds are you can03:58

falloreKana-nano: standard procedure is ask...wait...ask...wait...ask...wait... etc03:58
pragso i am downloading vmware server console that is what i need right03:59
dignani've never used server. i've only used workstation03:59

ed_debianKana-nano, Did it refer to itself?04:03
Kana-nanoyes it did04:03
unop_mib_3qj9ogdg, you should already be able to do that by default04:03
Kana-nanoim trying to install Wine, but it wants libasound04:03
unop_mib_3qj9ogdg, oh, can't??04:03
losherfallore: the find is supposed to search all the drives. But we can try it. Nothing to lose at this point...04:03
ed_debianKana-nano, Well that is strange but you said it's a dev pacakge right?  As in developer?04:03
Kana-nanoso i dl libasound2-dev and get this error under its own status04:03
losherfallore: back into grub: 'sudo grub'04:03
ZykoticK9matari, check out MPX or i guess there is also some sort of patch for xorg - good luck.04:04
ed_debianKana-nano, Do you know about the repos?04:04

mudittuliscunizi: nothing changed, same result !04:05
ed_debianKana-nano, Linux is based on the idea of free software.  The ubuntu developers have created a massive repository of software (pre-complied) that you can download and use for free04:05

TimReichharthi guys I need some help on getting horde/imp to show up on my server I used the command line to install it by apt-get install imp404:07
ed_debianTo get wine just get it from the repos!04:07
Kana-nanook well, i guess its only fair if i state ive taken a linux class too04:07
Kana-nanoso odds are, ill probably know the more basic things04:07
n00b871ubotu: how do i ask you questions, what is the format?04:07
ed_debianKana-nano, lucky04:07
Kana-nanoexpensive too04:07
Kana-nanobut go ahead04:07
falloren00b871: simply ask what you think is your best attempt at formulating your question04:07
mudittuliscunizi: i tried that !, but the nvidia-setting is not running, even after nvidia-xcofig from the command line04:07
Kana-nanothats the problem, Wine refuses to install04:08
ed_debianIf you run the command sudo apt-get install wine04:08
ed_debianWhat happens?04:08
losherfallore: damn. I'm afraid I'm stuck then. The best I can offer at this stage is for you to keep reading that thread and try some of the different suggestions04:08
Kana-nanothe Add/Remove packager states i should use synaptic to install Wine04:08
scunizimudittuli: and nvidia-xconfig didn't do anything?  did your update include a kernel upgrade?04:08
Kana-nanoSynaptic states i need libasound04:08
ed_debianKana-nano, did you?04:08
n00b871fallore: so do i type in uobotu !myquestion ?what do i type in to get a response ,, sorry i am a n00b04:08
Kana-nanolibasound says "dependency is not satisfiable"04:09
mudittuliscunizi: yes it did04:09
ed_debiann00b871, Just type the question and people will answer04:09
ed_debianKana-nano, ok, because Wine is in the repos all of it's dependencies should all be in the repos.  You should not need to download a package from the internet like you did (that's windows like)04:09
Kana-nanothat was my first thought too. hence why im lost atm04:10
n00b871ahh nice, ok i got it who likes salivadore dali paintings?04:10
Kana-nanoi could CnP the exact wording of the errors if you think that might help04:10
ed_debianKana-nano, search synaptic for "libasound" or whatever it is04:10
Kana-nanook 1 sec04:11
mudittuliscunizi: the update didn't found a pre-compiled kernel, so it compiled one by itself !04:11
ed_debianKana-nano, That isn't necessary I get the idea04:11
Flanneln00b871: Please keep your questions on topic.  This is a support channel.  If you're looking for chat, try #ubuntu-offtopic04:11
ed_debiann00b871, I do?  What does this have to do with ubuntu?04:11
fallorethanks for all your help, losher04:12
scunizimudittuli: usually with a kernel upgrade a reinstall is necessary when using nvidia's driver.  Obviously something else is going on. You might paruse the ubuntuforums.org and nvidia's linux forum.  by pre-complied kernel, that happened when installing the nvidia driver? or during the update?04:12
Kana-nano... it says its installed04:12
Kana-nanogreen box04:12
n00b871i apologize, that must be off topic04:12
TimReichharthi guys I need some help on getting horde/imp to show up on my server I used the command line to install it by apt-get install imp404:12
ed_debianKana-nano, libasound is installed?04:12
mudittuliscunizi: and when i run nvidia-xconfig, a new xconfig file is written nothing more !04:12
Kana-nanoso claims synaptic04:12
ed_debianKana-nano, But when you mark wine for installation what happens?04:12
losherfallore: sorry it didn't solve your problem. I think we're close though, for what it's worth... :-(04:12
ed_debianso claims...04:12
ed_debianarrogant synaptic04:12
Kana-nanoon synaptic?04:12
FloodBot2ed_debian: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:12
Kana-nanoit gives me this:04:12
ed_debiansorry FloodBot2 :(04:12
mudittuliscunizi: that happen during nvidia04:13
Kana-nanoThe following packages have unresolvable dependencies. Make sure that all required repositories are added and enabled int he preferences04:13
mudittuliscunizi: that happen during installing  nvidia driver *04:13
fallorelosher: i got it ;) interested in the solution? :)04:13
Kana-nano  Depends: libasound2 (>1.0.18) but 1.0.15-3ubuntu4 is to be installed04:13

mimiloonhi everybody, i have a quick question on firestarter and that is: i have multiple network cards and when i disconnect one network card and use the other, the firewall also stops. is there a way to make the firewall stay active no matter which network card i'm using?04:13
danok so my main HD is encrypted with the Ubuntu filesystem encryption. I just added another HD. Is there a way to encrypt that also and link it to the main encryption or do I need to use a program like truecrypt?04:13
ed_debianKana-nano, Hit the reload button?04:13
Kana-nanooh i have, 20 times04:14
arthurhis there some kind of apt "meta package" that installs only security updates on an ubuntu server (9.04)?04:14
ed_debiango to system -> preferences -> software sources04:14
fallorelosher: we forgot to chroot :P04:14
scunizimudittuli: that's normal for the nvidia driver when installing the one direct from nvidia.. it needs to make a kernel mod.  so I take it you've already install  "build-essential" previously?04:14
losherfallore: so it works now?04:14
fallorelosher: sudo chroot /mnt/root /bin/bash was the only step i didn't take. i did that and then followed all the instructions after (in the 2nd "NOTICE/EDIT" window) and it worked perfectly04:15
ed_debianKana-nano, It might be system -> admin -> software sources04:15
barbarella2mimiloon:you have to make rules for all interfaces04:15
losherfallore: and it boots (the acid test)?04:15
IamSOGum... what's in xubuntu 9.04 that makes it load so much longer? is it possible to remove that long loading time?04:15
danIamSOG, Mine actually boots faster04:15
IamSOGdan you using ext4 ?04:15
danIamSOG, yep04:16
IamSOGnice, sounds like I should try it then04:16
Kana-nanoright, i have WineHQ selected under Third-Party Software and the key in the Authentication tab04:16
Kana-nanoand reloaded afterwards04:16
danIamSOG, I haven't tried it with SSD's but with a traditional HD it feels faster though I haven't done a quantitative test.04:17
Clustyi was dumb enough to enable home encryption during installation. is there a way to disable it?04:17
mudittuliscunizi: yes i have build-essential04:17
mimiloonbarbarella2: how can i do that? i'm new to linux04:17
Clustyi think that I cannot auth with ssh keys because of this04:17
scunizimudittuli: sounds like either a regression on the new kernel or something else.. the only thing I can suggest at this point is to look at nvidia's linux forum and ubuntuforums.org.. I'm out of ideas.. you might boot into the previous kernel and reinstall the driver there where it worked until you get it sorted out.04:18
ed_debianKana-nano, Here is what I think it happening.  You have enabled the WINE developers repo and when you search synaptic it automatically shows you the newest package (from the WINE repo)  However the libasound that is currently in the ubuntu repos isn't new enough for the newest WINE package.  Therefore it seems unattainable to synaptic.  Try to install an older version of WINE or try removing that repo from your software sources.04:18
fallorelosher: haven't tried yet, but i'll let you know04:18
Kana-nanook hold on04:19
losherfallore: good luck04:19
puffHow do I get gnome network-manager to stop yanking my wirelss card out of monitor mode?04:19
ed_debianKana-nano, ubuntu has a wine package (you don't need that repo) it's just not as new (probably)04:19
Clustypuff: you kill it :D04:19
barbarella2mimiloon:take a look at fwbuilder04:19
puffClusty: I wa safraid you were going to say that.04:19
Clustypuff: killall -9 NetworkManager/avahi04:19
puffOkay, once I'm done, how do I restart it?04:20
scunizimudittuli: sorry I can't offer anything more.. :(04:20
Clustypuff: i presume you wanna crack wirelesses?04:20
ed_debianAlso the reason that your libasound dev file wouldn't work is because it is a developer file.  It is designed to take a working libasound package and update it.  It is not a complete package.  Rather it is a bunch of improved code04:20
Kana-nanook i see what to do. ill follow up when im done doing just that04:20
ed_debianKana-nano, Ok, let me know how it goes!04:20
mimiloonbarbarella2: i tried that but it's too complicated04:20
puffClusty: No, actually it's my own network, I need to log an http session to debug what's going on with this webapp.04:20
puff(when accessed from a user's mac)04:20
Clustypuff: you get a nice tool with aircrack-ng called airmon or so04:21
barbarella2mimiloon:there is a wizard in it to make things easy04:21
Kana-nanooh wait, you know what?04:21
puffClusty: What does it do?04:21
Kana-nanothis is Ubuntu's package04:21
Clustypuff: airmon status wlan0 or something like that tells you all processing interfering04:21
GillaGalDoes anyone know how to add a UID/pass to mount a NFS share?04:21
Clustypuff: which i killed by hand04:21
mimiloonbarbarella2: thanks, let me download it again04:21
ed_debianKana-nano, What makes you say that?04:22
puffAh-hah, cool.04:22
puffSo I really kill *all* the processes with avahi in their name?04:22
ed_debianKana-nano, (BTW if you type my name before the things you say my client will highlight it for me and I will respond sooner)04:22
Clustypuff: that is what i did :D. kill all and let god sort them :D04:22
Kana-nanothis is the page i followed:  http://www.winehq.org/download/deb04:22
Clustypuff: did not have time to investigate an elegant solution04:22
Kana-nanoed_debian: yeah, my fault. sorry about that04:23
Clustypuff: drawback is that you need to restart machine i guess to get back the nifty features04:23
Kana-nanoed_debian: but yeah, thats the page i used. and also followed its instructions to the T04:23
ed_debianKana-nano, What page are you talking about?04:23
Kana-nanoed_debian: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb04:23
danok so my main HD is encrypted with the Ubuntu filesystem encryption. I just added another HD. Is there a way to encrypt that also and link it to the main encryption or do I need to use a program like truecrypt?04:24
ed_debianYou did good following the instructions04:24
ed_debianKana-nano, Why do you think that the wine package you're trying to install is the ubuntu one?04:25
jribKana-nano: apt-cache policy wine  on pastebin please04:26
Kana-nanoed_debian: doesnt Adding the WineHQ APT Repository from one of the links on that page give you that distro?04:26
Clustyso any1 has a clue about encrypted home dirts?04:26
Clustydan: :D any clue how I can disable encryption for homes? its a regular ext4 with some funny loopback04:27

willwadeIf I stick 4gigs of ram in a 32bit mythbox, can I push memory from the extra gig in to the onboard graphics or just from the 3gigs the OS uses?04:50
jribSunnyDP: it's probably because a lot of that stuff wasn't implemented right away with early versions of gvfs.  If it happens with another fresh new user, then I'd pretty sure that's the reason04:50
raghu125coorgSunnyDP, problem is definitely due to gvfs04:50

BalthCatHi.  I'm a new user planning to dual boot XP and Ubuntu (as it seems best recommended for beginners) and I'm looking to figure out a good starting partition size before I install Windows and all that jazz.  The site recommended at least 10gb.  I really only need enough for the basics and "experimentation" room as my data will mostly be in yet another partition.04:54
RukusXjrib  that kernel is not even an option in my grub loader and i am still uname -r 2.6.27-10-generic04:54
madbuntuBalth what do you do with windows04:54
BalthCatAnd this particular laptop is only 80gb.  Should I stick with 10gb or do you think I could claw a few gb off?04:54
BalthCatmadbuntu: It's all personal use.04:54

starkravingHi all, looking for help on X, have 9.04 on a dell inspiron notebook with external monitor... i want to add more options to the resolutions of the external monitor05:20
MagilumI just upgraded a System76 Darter Ultra to 9.04; it has an Intel graphics card and X is crashing as soon as it starts. alt-sysrq-k won't kill X; the only thing I can do is alt-sysrq-{reisub} to restart the system. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this or what's going on? There's a lot of stuff about Intel performance, but nothing about crashes.05:20
h22oso does anyone know a way to use an external monitor with a laptop with the lid closed?05:20
RedSocratesFLJohn: I had a similar problem and upgraded the kernel as suggested, and it fixed my issues.  If you're new to Ubuntu, upgrading the kernel might be a bit difficult, but there are instructions here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds05:20
mamonth22o: just keep it from going all suspendy when you close the lid, I suspect05:21
RedSocratesAnyway, read through all that, and enjoy -- that is, if I'm right that you were having freezing issues with an ATI card :)05:21
h22oit doesnt suspend; it just turns blank05:21
ed_debianh22o, It is blanking the screen which is a power-management feature05:21
h22owell how do i disable it?05:22
Gneah22o: that is weird... perhaps you need to edit acpi configs in /etc05:22
h22oi mean05:22
mamontordinarily you'd disable whatever you enabled, but since this was enabled for you :p you have to find out05:22

And if the kernel has issues, you can always boot the old kernel from GRUB.05:35

mgmuscarijimlovell777: what packages are failing to install?05:59
deathtechdurt, not a ton of exp with xrandr, but no better time to learn, eh ?05:59
barbarella2jamiejackson:grub goes to the mbr on sda, if that is the first boot device set in your bios or have an other boot loader like XP05:59
shruthiharpreet: I have to use this command always everytime I boot to get internet connection06:00

harpreet_shruthi: what do you have laptop or desktop?06:00
shruthiharpreet: Laptop06:00
jimlovell777mgmuscari: It varies, sometimes it's just a few seconds after the base system starts installing and several times everything works until it comes time to install the kernel image. The linux-kernel-image-generic is the only one that sticks out from my repeated attempts.06:00
jamiejacksonbarbarella2, my ide is showing last, but that's what i want to be booting from. so i need to reorder the drives in my bios?06:00
harpreet_shruthi:  i am assuming it asks you for wireless keyring to unlock, correct?06:01

jimmy_hey guys, i'm trying to install all the xfce plugins, but apt-get xfce4*plugins is not working... any ideas?06:01
jamiejacksonmunch13: lucene is a java one, there are prob others06:01
shruthiharpreet: if I dont run those commands even my wireless is not enabled at all06:01
jimlovell777mgmuscari: Less than 1GB, would enabling the swap partition before installation help?06:02
deathtechjimmy_, Try sudo apt-get install xfce4-plugins  without an asterisk06:02
shruthiharpreet: Yes also asks for key ring after that06:02
harpreet_shruthi: what card do you have, please paste06:02
jimmy_ahh, good call06:02
mgmuscarijimlovell777: probably not, but IIRC there is a low-memory install mode06:02
shruthiharpreet: broadcom 432806:02
mgmuscarijimlovell777: i don't know for certain, but i think the installer may take a pessimistic approach and load a whole lot of driver modules to try to get all the hardware working06:03
harpreet_shruthi: i'll have to rush to work in 10 mins, i'll surely help you with it if it doesnt get solvedb06:03
jimmy_deathtech, there is no xfce4-plugins metapackage06:03
shruthino problem06:03
jimlovell777mgmuscari: IIRC? I using the alternate install cd, does it have the low RAM option?06:03
shruthisee you around06:03

shruthihave a good day06:03
mgmuscari(if i recall correctly)06:03
jimmy_yeah, here let me show you some examples06:03
harpreet_shruthi: we can try something in the mean time06:03
mgmuscarijimlovell777: i'm not certain about that. look for advanced options when you load the disc06:04
shruthiharpreet: no problem06:04
harpreet_jimlovell777: burn it on DVD it will work for sure06:04
jimlovell777mgmuscari: Ahh, well thanks for mentioning it, that has to be what the problem is, the drive and all other hardware plus the disc is in working order. Seems like my issue is low RAM releated.06:04
deathtechjimmy_, if not , in gnome hit System-> Administration -> Synaptic PAckage Manager06:04
mgmuscarijimlovell777: it's highly possible. a lot of people have problems with low ram while installing ubuntu06:05
shruthiharpreet: Thanks and Bye06:05
harpreet_shruthi: you might need, madwifi or ndiswapper06:05
jimmy_deathtech, here are some examples: xfce4-screenshooter-plugin06:05
jimmy_xfce4-datetime-plugin       xfce4-sensors-plugin                   xfce4-session... can't imagine why xfce4*plugin wouldn't install all of those for me06:05
deathtechjimmy_, Just search for " xfce4 plugin " in Synaptic06:06
deathtechjimmy_, Minus the quotes06:06
jimmy_i know i can do that... i'm just puzzled why apt-get isn't handling my wildcards :)06:06
jimmy_i'll do that now though06:06

Myrttijamiejackson: ubuntuu moved from sda/hda separation ages ago06:14
barbarella2jamiejackson:look for boot priority in the bios and select the ide06:14

barbarella2panzor:no, hda is something from the old kernels, all are sd now06:15
losherRKR: I found something on the first hit on google for 'make live CD of ubuntu'06:16
panzorkerebrus, did you try reinstalling the nvidia driver you had previously?06:16
nicks007panzor, i dont have the directory trutype in /usr/share06:16
mobi-sheepRKR: I generally keep a list of to-be-install and to-be-purged packages in a textpad.  You can use that as script.06:16
panzorbarbarella2, oh really? Hmm I guess that would explain why slackware calls these hda ;P06:16
kerebruspanzor: the driver before was from the default install of ubuntu and I dont know where that driver is located or how to remove the one that is currently installed06:16
jamiejacksonbarbarella2: my boot priority goes 1st floppy, dvd, then the IDE i want, then "nvidia boot agent" then "2-nvidia boot agent"06:17

panzornicks007: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/    sorry06:17
barbarella2jamiejackson:that should be ok06:17
jamiejacksonbarbarella2: but i didn't change it. that's what it's *been* set on, and the ide comes up dead last (sde)06:18
eric__Does anyone know where I could go to learn how Ubuntu (or Linux in general) works, as an OS? (ie. the different components, such as the kernel, daemons, servers, hardware interfaces, etc.)06:18
panzorkerebrus: get it from nvidia. The installation with get rid of most of the previous things, but I had errors until I did some radical cleaning out. Look at all of the things you have installed with "nvidia" in front of them and uninstall. EVen the kernel one. Then run the sh script they give you after turning off gdm06:18
panzoreric__: slackware lol06:19
barbarella2jamiejackson:how many drives you got?06:19
losherjamiejackson: disk naming happens during boot up when the disks are probed. That's a separate issue to which disk the bios tries to boot from. To rename the disks, you'd have to change the cabling, as far as I know...06:19
RKReric__: losher: Friends First of all i explain my needs , I have installed ubuntu9.04 in my system and i have a live CD From ubuntu. my need is that i want to create a ubuntu installation disk with live CD support with my own languages and with mp3 codecs and other some softwares and i have to distribute it to my friends. pls guide me!06:19

jamiejacksonlosher: can't do much about cabling changes, since my desired boot is ide, and my others are sata06:20
kerebruspanzor: so go into synaptic and remove all nvidia entries?06:20
jamiejacksonbarbarella2: 1 ide (my desired boot), and 4 satas that i intend to raid506:21
barbarella2jamiejackson:so you want to have the mbr on the ide drive06:21
panzorkerebrus: yeah, lemme see if I can remember the ones I did. It looked pretty scary, I remember. One of those "cross yoru fingers and hope that random forum poster knew what he was talking about ><" moments06:21
eric__panzor, do you mean install Slackware?06:21
losherjamiejackson: then you're stuck with whatever naming scheme the kernel comes up with. You should still be able to boot from the ide disk though06:21

panzorkerebrus: humbug, what were the errors if any06:37
losherpanzor: I know what you mean, presumably a bug in the readline library. No idea of the cure, sorry...06:37
kerebruspanzor "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server. "06:37
panzornah, there's no way. I'm pretty sure I just messed up when I was making my root shell be red text06:38
panzorkerebrus: when you installed the nvidia driver, were you in the same kernel as you booted up the first time?06:38
macvrhi all....... does anyone know how to get the acer orbicam to work?06:38
coz_kerebrus,  but did you download the driver from nvidia's site or use  sytem/administrations/hardware drivers??06:39
coz_macvr,  did you install an applications like camorama  to view the video?06:39
Myrttipanzor: it might be that you've got some unicode or other mixup in your config file for the shell then...06:39
panzorMyrtti: mind if I post a pastebin to my gross root's .bashrc?06:40
losherjoetheodd: none of the tv apps are great. I've used tvtime in the past...06:40
topgun21Myrtti: shouldn't panzor  have utf 9 as jhis default language?06:40
macvrcoz_: no...it didnt work in hardy and i stopped looking into it... is camorama in the repos?06:40
topgun21Myrtti: shouldn't panzor  have utf 8 as his default ansi language?06:40
joetheoddlosher, i decided to jfgi and found tvtime. installing atm06:40
coz_macvr, yes it is as well as other apps like it I think even pidgin works also06:41
coz_macvr,   camorama will be a quick test for the cam though06:41
ReggieLovedoes anyone know if i can get Rythmbox media player to sort by 'album artist' instead of 'artist' ?06:41

hskillis the virtual terminal you see when you press ctrl+alt+F1, considered a "terminal emulator"?06:42
panzorReggieLove: I dont' know the answer, but I'm curious to know why you want to do this and what hte difference is06:42
coz_macvr,   plug in the cam right before you start camorama06:42
ReggieLovepanzor, some albums have multiple artists and it makes the library confusing06:42

topgun21macvr: Have you installed the usb video driver for linux?06:44
coz_macvr,  hold on06:44
panzorReggieLove: ah, I just strip all of the artists from techno albums and rename the whole album's artists the most notorious one otherwise :/. Defeinitely a workaround. I'd say for you to let me know if you figure it out but....my hopes are low for us meeting again >_>06:44
macvrtopgun21: its a built-in one... wait i'll check06:44
ReggieLovepanzor: yeah that would work i guess but there are a lot of them haha, yeah good point06:45
panzorReggieLove: I rename ID3 tags a bunch at a time with Ex Falso. I think you can select a whole album at a time and rename them that way too, in rhythmbox06:46

panzornomad77: oh it's red, it just has errors when I search through history with "up"06:47
Piraterois there another way i can switch layouts through the commandline?06:47

loshermobi-sheep: ah,thanks07:23

endtask89mobi-sheep, , ubuntu also using partition like C:\ or d:\ ?07:24
panzorcached: while the other thing was installing? that possible?07:24
cachedpanzor: after the other thing finished07:24
mobi-sheependtask89: No.  There are a single tree in linux and mac.  I can't remember the command.07:24
Crowmanendtask98: partitions windows-like? NO07:24
panzorcached: what about the nvidia-glx-new package07:24
panzorcached: do you have that?07:24
mobi-sheep!dirs | endtask8907:25
ubottuendtask89: An explanation of how files and directories are organized on Ubuntu, and how they can be manipulated, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview07:25
cachedpanzor how do i check07:25
panzorcached: uh, synaptic or you could use "dpkg -l | grep nvidia"07:25
mobi-sheependtask89: You want to look at "Main Directories" on the link.07:25
cachedpanzor: it's not on the list07:25
mobi-sheependtask89: You want to worry about your home folder -- That's it.07:25
panzorcached: first part lists all of your packages, then pipes that to show only the lines with "nvidia" in it07:25
mobi-sheep!home | endtask8907:25

endtask89mobi-sheep, good! thanks alot man!!!07:26
panzorcached: may I ask what the overall goal of doing all this is? updating your video drivers?07:26
cachedpanzor: I couldn't find a -dev package for 18007:26
ruediixHello.  I noticed that synaptic keeps saying that it can't verify the signature on any of the packages.  Does anyone know what might cause this>07:26
mobi-sheependtask89: Your personal file (and configuration files) are kept in /home/endtask89/07:26
ActionParsnipnibsa1242: yeah . starts in the pwd, to search the whole system you need to use /07:26
peepsalotargh.  why is awesome version so old in the repos07:26
cachedpanzor: so, being tired, i saw 177-dev as the latest and decided "ah, that's probably what i have. i'll just pick that"07:27
peepsaloti can't figure out how to build this thing either07:27
mobi-sheepruediix: You need to add the key.  Did you install something recently?07:27
panzorcached: why do you need the -dev?07:27
nibsa1242ActionParsnip: I found them... the user forgot that she put them on a USB thumb drive instead of copying to the hard drive07:27
loshernibsa1242: the -30 should be correct. Famous last words...07:27
cachedpanzor: building o3d07:27
ruediixmobi-sheep no07:27
ActionParsnipruediix: run: sudo apt-get update. If you give the error regarding the key I can give you the command07:27
panzorcached: ah, not familiar. Give me a second to see...07:27
loshernibsa1242: Users. Can't kill 'em...07:28
ActionParsnipruediix: sounds like you added a repo and not its pgp key07:28
endtask89mobi-sheep, you are very clever in ubuntu... when did u start using ubuntu?07:28
h4mx0ris there an mplayer skin that makes it only one window?07:28
panzorcached: I'd get these two packages: nvidia-glx-new and nvidia-glx-new-dev07:28
ActionParsniph4mx0r: smplayer is getting bigged up at the moment, I use it without skin at al so couldnt comment07:29
kc8pxyi need help understanding why i can't tell apt to simply reinstall a package i installed,  and then goofed,  so i want the fresh files to overwrite my goof.   and it won't.(or i don't know how to tell it to).07:29
panzorcached: just a guess, but it sounds like "-new" means that it'll update it as it goes, thus being the "best" for the people that want to stay current. That's what I have as default - at least I didn't put it there myself.07:29
ruediixActionParsnip: It is reporting it in the standard Ubuntu packages.07:29
nibsa1242losher: yeah, but its ok... pictures represent about 3 hours of work... so time was saved, and now I know how to use find better07:29

bguptaGood evening.. I was fiddling around in OS X today and discovered http://www.manpagez.com/man/8/dynamic_pager/osx-10.4.php I'm wondering if Ubuntu ships with something like this, as it seems pretty useful?07:30
loshernibsa1242: cool07:30
nibsa1242losher ActionParsnip thanks for all your help!07:30
mobi-sheependtask89: I began using Gentoo at first.  I later moved to Ubuntu.07:30
ActionParsnipruediix: doesnt mean anything. If you don't have the ke, you don't have the key07:30
ActionParsnipnibsa1242: np bro07:30
h4mx0rActionParsnip: I want to use regular plain mplayer but with a one piece skin07:30
losherkc8pxy: apt-get install --reinstall <package> or some such07:30
cachedpanzor: "nvidia-glx-new is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has ben obsoleted, or is only available from another source"07:30
cachedpanzor: then it lists nvidia-glx-177 as its replacement07:30
ruediixtell ActionParsnip I had the key before and it reports that I have the key for the Ubuntu repositories in the GUI.07:30
h4mx0rActionParsnip: I still don't get why vlc is always bugged in some way on most linux distros07:31
ActionParsnipruediix: if you run: sudo apt-get update   in terminaland give the error about keys I can give you the command to resolve it07:31
losherh4mx0r: crappy programmers...07:31
ActionParsniph4mx0r: i dont use it07:31
panzorcached: ah, that could be. I'm in 8.04 - I guess try reverting everything to the one that went through that caused the other one's error? restart X and cross your fingers07:31
ActionParsniph4mx0r: log bugs and things get fixed07:31
mobi-sheeph4mx0r: You're experiencing an embedded window bug?  Two interfaces -- One for GUI --- One for Control Interface.07:31
zenxrmobi-sheep: beginning with gentoo, never heard of that before :P07:31
ruediixActionParsnip OK, I've got something really screwed up.  It's reporting that it is using ftp.debian.org as it's sources.  I have no clue why.07:31
Ryan52can somebody on jaunty or karmic please pastebin their /var/lib/dpkg/alternatives/x-www-browser for me?07:31
ActionParsniph4mx0r: try cvlc07:32
mobi-sheepzenxr: Better Gentoo than Windows. :)07:32
zenxrmobi-sheep: I opted for slackware instead of gentoo, older packages but better stability07:32
zenxrmobi-sheep: just because gentoo isn't very user friendly.07:32
ActionParsnipruediix: you shouldnt have any debian sources, ubuntu + debian debs = pain07:32
losherzenxr: I find 8.04.2 LTS rock solid & stable, personally...07:32
h4mx0rActionParsnip mobi-sheep: I am tired of all these rediculous media apps that just fail. I'm using mplayer and I need the skin to stop being retarded :( sorry I'm just fed up I opened some wannabe mplayer clone and it couldn't play a basic .flv file07:32
zenxrlosher: I was referring to gentoo07:32
ActionParsniph4mx0r: you can use the WMP skin for comedy value07:33
losherzenxr: Ah, my bad...07:33
panzorlosher: dude, BFF's, I'm telling you07:33
ruediixActionParsnip:  I never installed those repositories I have no clue how they got there.   I am going to have to do a complete reinstall.07:33
ActionParsniph4mx0r: any player can play any media file provided it has codecs07:33
zenxrlosher: it's cool lol, i'm running 8.10 atm, but it's a custom distrobution07:33
ActionParsniph4mx0r: the player is irrelevant07:33
h4mx0rActionParsnip: so all I have to do is strip down the wmp skin? where is it can you link07:33
panzorruediix: hold on, you want to get rid of some .debs? I wasn't paying attention07:33
mobi-sheeph4mx0r: I like gnome-mplayer over mplayer myself as it use a simple interface.  You might want to try that.  VLC is great but there are an embedded window bug occurring.  There are also are a patch for it if you're not aware.  It's not updated in Ubuntu repos.07:33
ActionParsnipRyan52: sec07:34
losherpanzor: :-)07:34
h4mx0rmobi-sheep: that's the one I was just talking about07:34
Ryan52ActionParsnip: thanks much :)07:34
ruediixtell Panzor no, the issue is unknown  Somehow my repository list got corrupted.07:34
h4mx0rmobi-sheep: I might try vlc again I haven't used it since 8.10 when it couldn't open a directory without dieing07:34
ActionParsnipRyan52: http://pastebin.com/f3e58b43f07:34
mobi-sheeph4mx0r: gnome-mplayer --> not same as mplayer.  It uses a different GUI./07:34
ActionParsnipRyan52: if you backup the files you edit, befre playing then you will never need to ask again07:35
ActionParsnipRyan52: as you can roll back07:35
panzorruediix: ack, sorry07:35
ActionParsnipRyan52: you may want to bear this in mind in thefuture07:35

cachedlosher: ?07:39
cachedpanzor: shouldn't ctrl-alt-backspace restart x?07:39
ubottuTo re-enable the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace combination that restarts your X server, you can install the "dontzap" package and use the command « sudo dontzap --disable ». The combination Alt+SysRq+K can also be used to obtain a similar effect.07:39
panzorcached: yep - though they disabled it in 9.04 I heard...'tards07:39
ActionParsnippanzor: yeah, weird isnt it07:39
ruediixActionParsnip: I can't find those debian archives anywhere in the /etc/apt config files07:39

ActionParsnipruediix: can you pastebin your /etc/apt/sources.list file as well as the output of: sudo apt-get update  please07:40
cachedpanzor: so, how do i restart x? log out and back in?07:40
ActionParsnipxero: then install apache207:40
trancefatHi all, Evolution is quite buggy (as a personal organizer) isnt it?07:40
xeroalready installed apache207:41
panzorcached: do the doo-icky the bot posted about dontzap. It'll be useful in the future at some point. Save some time07:41

ActionParsnipruediix: due to the wide range of skill set in the channel i treat everyone identically so details are not overlooked as assumed07:47
ruediixActionParsnip  OK, then if you know the name of the keyring package so I can reinstall it properly, it would help, otherwise I'll have to go on my own.07:47

UFO_IRC_TESTwhen i try to install ubuntu with standard way,the patition manager said i have bad sector,so i have to check my disk in windows first.08:03
rayludlemaitre: hardly. 64-bit processors aren't twice as fast08:03
zirodayTasbuntu: no, 32bit can only address ~3.2GB of RAM08:03
cachedTasbuntu: theoretically or practically? theoretically, it means that each register of your computer can contain 64 bits of data, allowing for fast computations with big numbers and ability to use big numbers to access memory. practically, it means that if you run 64 bit you might see slight improvement in some things, but problems in others due to incompatabilities08:03
rayludsl1009: hardly. 64-bit processors aren't twice as fast08:04
panzorTasbuntu: 32 bit is more supported. I'd go for that unless you plan on video editing or something that actually needs more than 3 gigs.08:04
persistent_codeis there a version of > that flushes on every write? Some code i'm working with crashes the OS, so I need > to flush in order for me to read the output later.08:04

rayluziroday, Tasbuntu: 4 is correct, but reserved space and memory in other devices08:04

TasbuntuI don't get it, I'm afraid xD08:05

raylupersistent_code: what language are you talking about? what you're after is "unbuffered" i/o08:05
frankS2Slart: cpu mhz: 80008:05
panzorTasbuntu: rumor has it that ubuntu 32-bit uses 3 gigs for everything, and reserves the 4th gig for just the kernel. Not a waste :)...or maybe I'm just optimistic about my own folley of buying 4 gigs...08:05
SlartfrankS2: powersaving? it's a feature08:05
whatvnwho say 32 bit cannot use more than 3GB ram?08:05
frankS2Slart: and on the first line it says 1.73GhZ08:05
TasbuntuAh, but you see, the thing is I don't only use Ubuntu08:05
rayluTasbuntu: you can address 4GB of virtual space, but not all of it is in RAM and some of it is reserved by the kernel08:05
kenyonfrankS2: you have CPU governor for saving energy.08:05
evilGaryfrankS2: most newer intel chips slow down when not used08:05
raylupanzor: where the hell did you hear that rumor?08:06

panzorhas anyone gotten PAE to work with their kernel to get more than 3?08:07

zirodayraylu: yes, and the above examples do not need to.08:08
panzorziroday: yeah, but it avoids the 64-bit stuff08:08
zirodayTasbuntu: not any of the top of my head sorry. #winehq will know more08:08

BigVHey all, I'm currently having an issue with a fresh install of Ubuntu. None of my personalised settings stay when I reboot the PC. In addition, Firefox doesn't keep any history, I can't even use the back button. It's like I dont have write access to whatever part Ubuntu uses to store these sorts of things.08:26
BigVIm using 9.04. I have never had this issue before. :/08:27
zirodayBigV: this is a fresh install? Are you running of a thumbdrive?08:27
ubuntu__BigV have you actually installed it08:27
unop_BigV,   does this command return anything?   find ~/ ! -user "$USER"08:28
BigVziroday: Yes its all installed, running off an HD, not a thumbdrive08:28
kimdathanks dsl1103. i've thought about this also but maybe there was another mt command i could use to speed things up.08:28
BigVunop_: it returns nothing08:29
ubuntu__BigV have you gone through the Installer located as a desktop icon which says "Install"08:29
zirodayubuntu__: that is not the issue. The issue is BigV has no home folder for some reason08:29
zirodayBigV: try create a new user and see if that fixes it08:29
BigVYes, I've installed Ubuntu many time before and have ti running on my laptop as well. I haven't done anyhting different08:29
unop_ziroday, and how do you conclude that?08:29
BigVziroday: thanks I will give it a go08:30
zirodayunop_: does your command above not search for a home dir (or anything in it)?08:30
IL12how can I do a secure erase on all empty space in a server install?08:30
unop_ziroday, it looks for files that he is not the owner of in his homedir08:30
zirodayBigV: also did you create /home on seperate partition?08:30
zirodayunop_: ah apologies, I misunderstood :)08:31
notsoemo1I'm having trouble configuring jack, it fails every time I try to start it08:31
BigVNo I let Ubuntu handle the partitioning automatically. Its dual booted with Windos XP08:31
BigVI do have a home directory. With a folder "black" which is my username08:32
BigVbut I will try creating a new one08:32
BigVhrm, so the Add User is greyed out. lol08:32

darlekwhich problem?08:37
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about key08:37
BigVdarlek: i have a weird issue with a fresh install of ubuntu, I cant create new users, firefox doesnt save any history, cant even use the back button, and gnome doesnt save any of my customisations08:38
darlekdoes nautilus show all files with a lock on them?08:39
BigVno thats the thing, i still have full power, i can change system settings, mount settings, install new software, read/write any files i want08:40
unop_BigV, did you try creating and using a new user?08:40
BigVi cant08:40
arandBigV: what kind of permissions are your home dir?08:40
BigVthe add user button is blanked out, and i cant alter any settings in the user and groups thing08:41
unop_BigV,   sudo  adduser new_username08:41
tdnAfter upgrading to Kubuntu 9.04, ny disk keeps spinning down, when I am not using it. Even when I'm on AC Power. This is very annoying and probably damaging my disk. How do I make it stop?08:41
darlekwell, if he's not getting results though I'd say instead.. xterm, su sudo to get root and then try adduser08:41
arandBigV: Does this happen every time or just now?08:41
BigVwierd, it says im not the owner and i cant change the permissions08:42
BigVevery time08:42
unop_darlek, su sudo is redundant ..  sudo -i08:42

mespejelhello i have some boring newbie questions about ubuntu and linux.. i am interest in ubuntu so. i wonder if someone is in good mood to help me. maybe this is not the correct room?08:46
mib_9n53nghey all, have a question.  going to be setting up a dual boot sys, ubu and xp.  but main question is my data, which will be on a main, huge, partion, around 200gb.  thing is, what file system would be best, fat32 or ntfs???08:46
Slartmespejel: sure.. just ask your questions08:47
unop_mib_9n53ng, ntfs08:47
Slartmib_9n53ng: I would go with ntfs08:47
Nom-FAT32 is evil, definately NTFS :)08:47
Slartntfs isn't evil?? =)08:48
Nom-Not that NTFS isn't even either, but it's lesser of two evils.08:48
mib_9n53ngunop_: Slart why would it be better?  have the rread write issues been resolved properly while on the ubu side, aand accessing, wrtiing data, to ntfs partion08:48
mespejelSlart: thanks. So what is the difference between Gnome, GTK2, Compiz, Emerald and E17? :)08:48
unop_one could argue that NTFS is evil-er than FAT32 .. but that's a topic for another day08:48
mespejelSlart: I am just extremely confused.08:48
mobi-sheepunop_: Many gracious.08:48
SamaeIs Ubuntu recomends only for intel boards?08:48
ubuntu__have u guys used the rc1 windows 7 already?08:49
darlekif it has a pulse, Ubuntu will run on it08:49
unop_mib_9n53ng, well it supports things like compression, encryption, permissions, etc .. and the RW issue has been sorted, pretty much yea08:49
Slartmespejel: wow.. most of those are different things.. and I don't mean different ways of doing the same thing.. different things altogether08:49
darlekhaven't touched win for two years now.  Only have to use it outside the home08:50
SamaeSo it only suggest Intel procesor only08:50
ubuntu__windows 7 is great08:50
Slartmespejel: I think wikipedia has some good articles on these things.. but I'll try to explain anyways08:50
ubuntu__even dare i say better than ubuntu08:50
mib_9n53ngunop_: cool, i was trying to steer away from windows though... i hate it.  lol.  but sadly, it is needed.  what about ext3 as the main super partiion, can i get winxp to read from ext3 at all?08:50
mobi-sheepubuntu__: Can Window 7 get viruses?  Yes it is great! :)08:50
ubuntu__no in windows seven viruses are disabled no more viruses on windows08:51
Slartmespejel: gnome is .. a framework.. it comes with stuff like a registry like database for application settings..08:51
Slartmespejel: a structure for how applications should behave.. what they can do etc etc08:52
darlek_mib: I hadn't heard that xp can read ext3 but if ubuntu is running on that then /home in nfts partition that might work and allow for sharing of files?08:52
mobi-sheepubuntu__: I see "Windows 7 beta affected by Vista viruses" on Google :)08:52
marlunIs there a changeset viewer for ubuntu so I can view changesets for different packages?08:52
BigVunop_: It didnt work unfortunately. I tried to log in and I just got a black screen, still with a responding cursor, cant use crtlaltdel or ctrlaltbackspc, so I rebooted and same thing.08:52

unop_BigV, sounds like something went wrong during the install .. this is very odd08:54
mib_9n53ngeverything is backeed up, always08:55
Slartmespejel: compiz is a system where you basically don't draw stuff to the graphics screen directly.. you draw it to compiz.. then compiz takes all the windows and decides how to place them on the screen.. so compiz can decide that one window should be spinning around.. and the application doesn't have to deal with it..08:55
unop_BigV, open up a terminal and issue this command.   sudo aptitude reinstall '~i'08:55
sllSamae: isn't easy to answer this quaswtion... depends.. take a look at cinelerra, openmovie editor...08:55

mobi-sheepFlynsarmy: By doing this, you're getting a patched version of new VLC 1.0 ALPHA.  I have this too.09:42
darlekraz: it's hard to judge a stuck key on the laptops.  Even a non stuck key can have gunk pressed into it making the connection, even if the key isn't really that bad.  I took my keyboard off, went over it and found two keys.  Cleaned, and it worked.  The noise you hear is buffer overrun.09:42

ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about rails09:51
JesusCake[BoT]Okay, so the comp has xp. and it had viruses adware and a whole bunch of bad crap on it. I wanted to just reformat the hard drive and put linux on it, but i didnt see a spot to do a reformat.09:51
JesusCake[BoT]so i think that windows is still lingering on there, which is the reason for it being slow still09:52
whazillahow would i use ubuntu to go from stage1 to another ?09:52
kenyonJesusCake[BoT]: Can you boot to windows anymore? If not, then it is gone.09:52
whazillachroot ?09:52
JesusCake[BoT]no it just goes right into linux.09:52

methvanI am trying to get my wireless working again09:53
Snomii downloaded compiz configuration thing, and i set the effect to blur....now i can only see black windows xD anyone got any suggestions? should i go to the failsafe terminal and uninstall the configuarion tool?09:53
darlek_sudo aptitude install network-manager-gnome09:54
zirodayopenros: you will have to use cloning software such as partimage or clonezilla09:54
kenyonopenros: That isn't a simple task. Might be better to simply do a normal install.09:54
raghu125coorgmethvan, check this out http://wicd.sourceforge.ne09:54
openrosi hat an enterprice linux...09:54
openrosmissed the dvd09:54
openrosand want to copy from the exsisting server to the new server09:55
kenyonopenros: not ubuntu?09:55
Snomianyone know the command for an uninstall?09:55
ozzmosisopenros: it would probably be easier to install ubuntu on the 2nd machine then rsync to it from the first09:55
openrosnot ubuntu09:55
ozzmosisSnomi: apt-get autoremove09:55
zirodaySnomi: sudo apt-get remove <packagename>09:55
kenyon!ot | openros09:55
openrosi came here get a quick support09:55
ubottuopenros: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!09:55
Snomiwhich one...09:55
openroswhich chanel shall i ask09:56
ozzmosisSnomi: it depends what you want to do09:56
kenyonSnomi: aptitude remove09:56
openrosi need to copy redhat el 509:56
zirodaySnomi: autoremove will remove all "orphaned" packages whilst remove will uninstall the packages you request09:56
Snomimy compiz config manager thing i broken..09:56
mobi-sheepAnybody know what's up with VirtualBox repo?09:56
Snomiand i cant use ubuntu09:56
Snomibut i can get into the terminal09:57
zirodaySnomi: how is it broken? Please be specific09:57
methvanI have the two computer symbols on the task bar thing, when I left click on it, it is telling me my wireless connections are unmanaged... any ideas??09:57
lanoxx-can i mount my existing /home partition on a newly installed ubuntu with the same user name existing on both installations or will that give complications09:57
Snomiziroday: ive written it before: i downloaded compiz configuration thing, and i set the effect to blur....now i can only see black windows xD anyone got any suggestions? should i go to the failsafe terminal and uninstall the configuarion tool?09:57
mmm4m5mziroday: I think, "auto remove" is not the same as "orphaned".. at least for synaptic, looks it is different09:57
an7Anyone know what cpufreq method is actually being used on Jaunty? It seems to keep my cpu stuck on lowest frequency, even when I select the performance governor in the gnome applet09:57
darlek_openros: CloneZilla or G4L (Ghost 4 Linux) should be okay09:57
ozzmosislanoxx-: the only complication is if the user numbers are different09:57
ozzmosislanoxx-: the numerical user ID, that is09:58
zirodaySnomi: removing the configuration tool won't do anything09:58
lanoxx-ozzmosis, ok, so concerning configuration files thats no problem? thus i only have to check with the id command if the user ids are identical09:58
rdzhi all. when waking up from suspend, my macbook4,1 with jaunty makes some optical drive noise, but stays black. i also cannot connect per ssh then. it seems, that waking up was stopped at some point. how can i help debug this?09:58
zirodaySnomi: try do sudo mv ~/.compiz ~/.compiz.old09:58
Snomiin the failsafe terminal ?09:58
ozzmosisSnomi: you can probably just rm $HOME/.compiz .. or do what ziroday said09:59
tdnAfter upgrading to Kubuntu 9.04, ny disk keeps spinning down, when I am not using it. Even when I'm on AC Power. This is very annoying and probably damaging my disk. How do I make it stop?09:59
ozzmosislanoxx-: correct09:59
kenyonan7: cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor09:59
ozzmosistdn: I think the hdparm command can control that09:59
zirodaySnomi: no, press ctrl+alt+F1 to get to a VT. Press ctrl+alt+f7 to get back10:00
an7kenyon, that shows the governor as set, but the scaling doesnt change (acual mhz/ghz)10:00
JesusCake[BoT]sudo fdisk -sudo fdisk -l10:00
lanoxx-ozzmosis, thats cool, i just installed a fresh installation of jaunty on a different partition since there is just to much stuff broken, now im trying to figure out how to best do the migration, would you suggest copying over files from /etc/?10:00
Snomiwont that show up at black too10:00
ozzmosislanoxx-: I guess that depends what's broken :)10:00
kenyonan7: it's hard to see because it changes so fast10:00
JesusCake[BoT]woops haha10:00
Snomiziroday: wont that show up as black too10:00
kenyonan7: did it say ondemand?10:00
zirodaySnomi: no, its a virtual terminal10:00
tdnozzmosis, I have tried. No effect.10:00
an7kenyon - my cpu is sitting at 76%10:00
ziroday!pastebin | JesusCake[BoT]10:00
tdnozzmosis, hdparm -S0 does not work.10:00
ubottuJesusCake[BoT]: 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)10:00
Snomiwoot ok10:00
an7kenyon, it says performance, but the scaling__cur_freq sits at 800mhz (which sucks for a 2ghz laptop plugged into mains)10:01
zirodayJesusCake[BoT]: you have no windows partitions installed10:01
ozzmosistdn: how does it "not work"?10:01
JesusCake[BoT]why is it still acting sluggish then?10:01
JesusCake[BoT]a clean install will fix the problems it had, but this is not10:01
lanoxx-ozzmosis, basically scim and the printer dialog (system-config-printer) and a few other things, random crashes, and most annoyingly i have a lot of remaining kde packets lying around since i originally installed kubuntu and then later on installed ubunut-desktop10:02
lanoxx-also at boot time i still get the kubuntu splash but only have of the time and then it falls back to tty10:03
JesusCake[BoT]so i still have not found a solution.10:03
scandinavianEnter text here...hello10:03
Snomiziroday: there is no .compiz directory10:03
kenyonan7: I use ondemand on my core2 quad desktop. I have cpufrequtils installed, which provides a cpufreq-set program.10:03
zirodaySnomi: you are looking in /home/yourusername correct?10:03
Snomiwhat should i type ziroday10:04
an7kenyon, I tried installing that, but then gnome failed to login - some sort of clash with the builtin power tools? It didnt seem to let me change anything either though10:04
zirodaySnomi: do cd ~10:04
zirodaySnomi: and then ls -la | grep compiz10:04
Snomicd ~/.compiz ?10:04
lanoxx-ozzmosis, or would you say these problems are fixable?10:04
ozzmosislanoxx-: usually you'd just copy /etc/X11/xorg.conf.. possibly /etc/hosts .. maybe APT's sources.lst.. most of the stuff people care about is under $HOME or somewhere else though.. occasionally in /var10:04
zirodaySnomi: does ls -la | grep compiz return anything when you are in your homedir?10:05
an7kenyon, http://pastebin.com/m11f137f810:05
ozzmosislanoxx-: everything is fixable if you have the time10:05
lanoxx-ozzmosis, i would have the time i guess but not the knowledge and google was not help to sofar10:05
Snomiziroday: so i type Is -la | grep compiz10:05
kenyonan7: hmm I don't know, maybe you can just disable scaling?10:06
Snomiis that and L ?10:06
an7kenyon, how?10:06
zirodaySnomi: it is an l10:06
zirodaySnomi: l L (el)10:06
Snomiziroday: capital i?10:06
ozzmosisSnomi: ls .. short for list10:06
an7kenyon, google seems to think removing powernowd10:06
Snomithen in the middle, is that a line10:06
