lean2501i have the "relatime,errors=remount-ro" in my "/" and "relatime" in other mount points in fstab, i want to edit them to have "noatime", because this is a netbook, and i want it to not write so much to the disk00:33

kromarJoelito: what volume meter?00:59
Joelitoyou know, that knob to increase volume =)01:00
Joelitokromar: that you are using some alsa, try to use pulseaudio01:00
kromargona reboot and see if it works01:12
kromarnope, muted again01:14
kromarcan it be that the settings arent saved correctly?01:15
Joelitokromar: Nop, I don't have problems01:17
Joelitokromar: did you install something lately01:17
kromarits a fresh install01:18
kromaris there a command to save the sound settings manually?01:22
Joelitokromar: don't need too, system does it for you01:23
sml1226is there a 64 bit skype? or a softphone that can call skypeids?01:23
JoelitoI think the installer went wrong in some point01:23
kromarno i reinstalled it about 10 times and its the same every time, even with different installation cds01:24
Joelitokromar: oh, so..I don't know..I don't have problems with sound...01:25
Joelitotry to wait someone...at least I try to help =p01:25
kromarim looking for a solution for that for some month now, i waited long enough01:26
kromarhow do i get rights to change the user settings?01:46

jadez03stupid WicD08:22
psycho_oreosis there a possibility for me to make apt-get download from one of my other hosts which is running the same distro? (both are xubuntu 9.04). I was thinking of a possibility with trying to do network mounting of /var/cache/apt/archives maybe over smbfs.10:14
psycho_oreosI prefer not to download over the internet right now because for one I am on internet that's already capped, so the speed is slow enough. The other is that it will be a pain for me to update more xubuntu boxens and getting them to download the same package (thus its a waste of bandwidth and un-necessary redundancy)10:17
TheSheepyou can install a .deb file with gdebi or dpkg -i10:19
TheSheepso just copy the files over and install them10:19
psycho_oreoshmm that wouldn't be bad idea but what about somehow simplifying the process? because there's almost always updates available.. I was thinking if I shared that directory, it also contains a database file which I hope is what apt-get will be referring to rather than some hidden list somewhere else10:20
psycho_oreosor some really confusing process10:21
psycho_oreospreviously I was thinking of setting up my own server for all the debian packages but its really difficult now with keys and what not.. what a pain in the ass and plus if my idea works, I can shave some more bandwidth + space off by keeping all the debs on one box and the other just installs stuff from that one box without having to really download the deb packages and then update10:27
psycho_oreosok correction, its not in /var/cache/apt/archives for that db, its in /var/cache/apt.. and its not really a db its a file named pkgcache.bin which file reports it as just data.. was hoping for some useful ascii stuff that is readable so I can quickly determine if this will resolve my issue or not.. I'll use strings10:33
psycho_oreosseems as though the information I got is more like a dump of whatever is the output from apt-get update lol10:44
psycho_oreosI'll try my method once I've downloaded the updates first.. I'll install smb10:44
SiDipsycho_oreos: i know there is a way to turn one of your machines into a repository11:10
SiDiand other machines would use it11:10
SiDibut i dont know how you can tell which packages you want for the repository11:10
psycho_oreosSiDi, well I'm hoping for simple stuff like when I hit apt-get upgrade (after seeing theres new updates available) it will download from the host.. however, if I can cut off the extra downloading that'll be a bonus but its not a huge necessity11:11
psycho_oreoswhen I mean download I mean like downloading the deb packages onto the computer itself and then installing it from there11:12
SiDipsycho_oreos: the only difficult thing will be to setup the local repo and chose which packages should be on it11:12
psycho_oreoshmm thanks, I'll check the link11:12
SiDipsycho_oreos: i suppose there would be a way to make the local repo use the cache directory of apt as a list of packages, and then these packages would be available for your local machines11:12
psycho_oreoswell it shouldn't be too difficult, there's minor differences between my boxens and I don't use optimised packages11:13
psycho_oreosyeah I was thinking of mounting them over smb11:13
psycho_oreoslike share /var/cache/apt over smbfs and then mount it onto the other computers as if its their own.. tricking synaptic and what not into installing it rather than not seeing it there and download the packages from the real repository11:14
SiDiits better to setup a local repo :)11:15
psycho_oreosbut wouldn't that also need one to generate gpg keys and what not? then there's preferences over which repo to use unless I disabled all the internet ones and to use the local one?11:16
psycho_oreosanyway thanks for the inputs, I'll try my method first and if that doesn't work I'll setup a local repository11:21

mdshaw89nikolam: yep - I noticed this today on my netbook after a patching - wish I could wipe Windoze but unfortunately Netflix has no valid Linux option.18:00

kromaroh someone knows when SiDi will be back?18:02
psycho_oreosmdshaw89, ever tried running that software in vm?18:13
mdshaw89psycho_oreos:  yep - works fine but you have to have a enough of a machine to make it useable18:15
psycho_oreosmdshaw89, well I suppose you could try the stripped down versions of windows.. not that they are great but it'll probably suffice18:16
mdshaw89I'm using an Asus 900HD netbook as a TV video streamer - works fine - but sucks I have to run Windoze18:16
psycho_oreoscan't find open-source alternative?18:16
mdshaw89believe me I've looked18:17
mdshaw89Netflix has been very sneaky about their Roku box18:17
psycho_oreosas with all other windows only based programs18:17
mdshaw89I think it really sucks that Linux isn't good enough for a direct player but certainly good enough to run their set-top box18:18
psycho_oreosI'd say its the fault of the driver used in the process to render graphics as such :p but then again, why complain when you're getting all this for next to nothing?18:19
mdshaw89I'm surprised RMS hasn't pointed this out.18:19
mdshaw89Richard Stallman18:20
mdshaw89FSF advocate18:20
psycho_oreoswhat about what I said?18:20
mdshaw89Don't understand?18:21
psycho_oreosprobably because it might leave a flattery image on the developers themselves :p18:21
mdshaw89"flattery image"???18:21
psycho_oreosand no my head isn't working too well, its almost half past 3 in my time18:21
mdshaw89k - no prob - I'm in NC - its 1:22P here - :)18:22
psycho_oreosif you wrote programs for free, you're struggling but barely managing to get by everyday living.. someone comes along uses your software which is free as you licensed the software as... they then say hey why should I complain when its free? wouldn't that be bit of a bad feeling on your part knowing that you have donated something to the society and am struggling but this person says that he's not complaining when its all for free (m18:23
psycho_oreoseaning that he's kinda like a freeloader) no?18:23
psycho_oreosSat Jul  4 03:23:38 EST 200918:23
psycho_oreosI'm not implying that all developers are broke but because linux is so diverse that any one of us can be jobless, yet writing programs and contributing for free18:26
mdshaw89Keep in mind I'm NOT an RMS fan - I think the guy is a nut!  But I do think that Netflix should make a Linux player available for customers that run Linux - its a bit of a discrimination that since I prefer to run Linux you make me go buy an extra seperate piece of hardware that you offer to other customers for free18:30
psycho_oreosNetflix amongst many other conceited corporate entities still slaps the same old reasons that because linux is so diverse, its hard to make one for every linux distribution whereas in windows, its unified, one file does most if not all18:32
mdshaw89yep - I agree18:33
psycho_oreosmost likely in other words, they cbf making a binary blob program for every linux distribution... or better yet, they want to keep it as proprietary binary blob version like broadcrap18:33
mdshaw89I use Hulu too and until recently Joost - but I do wish there was a company that offered this service to users world-wide - I think a huge opportunity is being missed18:34
psycho_oreosoh well its their loss not yours18:34
psycho_oreosI am already doing my bit to not recommend such softwares/devices to other people unless if they have a good reason that they must use it18:36
psycho_oreosin business world.. there is a common saying.. "one bad customer brings 10 bad customers"18:37
psycho_oreoseffectively meaning that if we started taking on the stance of snubbing companies which snubs linux and its movement, we maybe able to turn the large mass around and inhibit their sales/revenues18:39
