MystaMaxquestion, I'm currently running 8.10, and I'm about to use clonezilla to image my /home partition, and migrate to a new hard drive. I'll be installing 9.04 on the new drive. What happens to my permissions?00:00
blzf00dn00b:  ubuntu is one "flavor" of linux00:00
glitsj16safruhani: i suggest checking both your /etc/mpd.conf settins and the output of launching mpd from a terminal window to see any warnings or errors00:00
coleysf00dn00b: Linux is the general term, and then there is... distributions like Fedora, Ubuntu, gentoo, etc...00:00
Out_Coldi was going to try it... but the klvm doesn't support it yet..00:00
jribOut_Cold: I lost data on a conversion, does that count!?00:00
blzso to speak00:00
fwaokdaVCoolio, breaks?00:00
Out_Coldjrib, that would be an issue lol00:00
coleysf00dn00b: Windows is the general, then there is... Vista, Xp, 2000, etc.00:00
jribOut_Cold: backups of course :)00:00
safruhaniglitsj16: thanks i'm gonna do that00:00
OttifantSirhornets: The one I know of is a third-party app for the screenlets package. But that's a lot of eye-candy if you just want an app to show bandwidth.00:01
Out_Coldjrib, i lost all my data during a backup lol00:01
Out_Coldon resiserfs though00:01
foul_owldoes anyone know how to fix grub error 2 without fiddling with the BIOS?00:01
jribOut_Cold: erm, you must have a terrible backup policy :)00:01
f00dn00bbut following that philosophy, shouldn't the windows line just be called "xp, 2003, vista" rather than having windows at the beginning?00:01
VCooliofwaokda: I mean, I tried to change themes for it and got the text because it was little difficult to set up; but you get the hang of it; it doesn't really 'break' things00:01

blzf00dn00b:  windows is completely different00:01
syslq78coleys, not really true, since you are talking different kernel versions, you have 50 distros all runing same kernel....00:01
hornetsOttifantSir: i know screenlets00:01
f00dn00bblz: but they're both operation systems00:01
blzf00dn00b:  but saying linux in lieu of ubuntu is like saying "NT Kernel" instead of windows00:01

fwaokdaVCoolio, I just would like it to boot up without images... so it would load its stuff and show that and then ask for a login/password without going to the ubuntu login gui thing either00:02
jribf00dn00b: people say "ubuntu", "ubuntu linux" and "ubuntu gnu/linux" but they all refer to the same thing00:02
hornetsI'm searching for something running as a service.00:02

syslq78f00dn00b, windows it's not so much different, if you stick to linux you'll get shitloads of general knowledge that will help you in all areas of IT, since it does not hide details, linux I mean.00:03

Andorinf00dn00b: The GNU project's official name for the operating system is GNU/Linux.00:03
syslq78coleys, yeah, I know :), you could spent years discussing that stuff and never get anywhere00:03

coleysf00dn00b: It really is. =P00:05
OttifantSirhornets: No software apart from Screenlets itself. It's in the repos actually. Latest version even. Though the team behind it are now working on Universal Applets: Applets that integrate with Avant Window Navigator. NetMonitor is the one I'm talking about. You have to go to www.screenlets.org and look for it in Third-Party Apps. The version you want is 0.8.00:05

blackest_knightblz:  np00:05
hornetshum ok :/00:05
syslq78f00dn00b, it's not retarted it means GNU NOT UNIX since linux and unix have completely different bacground implementation but look and feel the same since they both adhere to posix standard (portable operating system) which defines utilities needed, system calls etc to look&feel the same00:05
MaT-dgAndorin: yes, that's what I meant. I have tested it here (with my current router, not the linksys) and when I forwarded the port deluge noticed it right away so the problem is with the router00:05
blzf00dn00b:  it's the code's legal licence...00:05
syslq78treetopj, what's with wireless?00:05
f00dn00bfollowing the same philosophy, we could call windows "microsoft/windows/oemcrapware vista"00:05

OttifantSirVisualante: This isn't so much about personal preference as the community's ability to help you. As it is proprietary software, it's closed-source, meaning it might not be possible to override the settings you already get. And again: What's your card?00:14

jlarocheI'm running ubuntu netbook remix 9.04 on an eee pc (model 1000HE). After installing and removing (purging) a program (eeepc-acpi-utilities) my compiz / desktop effects / maybe my video drivers were broken.... can anyone help?00:19
Hilikuscoleys: it's fat3200:19
epicreviewshey everytime I start Ubuntu, I get the keyring login thing. Is there a way I can have it automatically log in?00:19
blackest_knightanom01y:  sshfs is run on the client open ssh server runs ons the server00:19
jlarochehow does one check if their video drivers are installed properly?00:19
Hilikusepicreviews: yes00:19
arflebarfleHi.  I am trying to figure out what is wrong with cheese or my kernel.  It seems that when I use Cheese to record video that the uvc video driver for my webcam fails after I close Cheese.  The next time I open Cheese the webcam driver has failed, so I see a test image.  How can I reset the uvc driver state?00:19
epicreviewsHilikus... how?00:19
pelmenepicreviews: yes00:19
Hilikusepicreviews: can't remember, let me check00:19
blackest_knightanom01y:  after years of getting fed up with samba shares and nfs sshfs is simply easy and secure00:20
Hilikusepicreviews: system/admin/login window00:20
glitsj16jlaroche: one way would be to read the /var/log/Xorg.0.log and check for warnings (lines starting with (WW) and/or errors (EE)00:20
arflebarfle-- Oh, and I know the webcam driver has a problem, because the dmesg lists a uvcvideo problem.  I think the webcam still works with skype usually, but for some reason Cheese makes the driver fail.00:20
epicreviewsno I'm talking about the keyring thing00:21
foul_owlcan ubuntu create and install to jffs2 out of the box?00:21
safruhaniglitsj16: so what will i do ?00:21

arflebarfleI gather that no one knows what is wrong with Cheese and uvcvideo, or how to reset the driver.  Do you know of a better program than Cheese that will record audio and video?00:23

sadrisIs there anyway I can skip the Paritioning step in the Ubuntu installer? I have a special way that I want my XFS partition done and I had already done it ahead of time.00:24
glitsj16jlaroche: not familiar with netbook remix, but have you tried to reinstall eeepc-acpi-utilities yet?00:24
coleyssadris: Custome Partition. Is what you will want.00:24
anom01yblackest_knight, I have the server running (sshd), but I can't use sshfs.. I keep getting "missing host" when I use sshfs
coleyssadris: Custom Partitioning*00:25
arflebarflethe9a3eedi: I have heard of a lot of X crashes from others.  In recent times I have mostly been experiencing network problems, and now the webcam driver problem.00:25
dryfyreany way i can expand to two monitors00:25
jlarocheglitsj16 - yes... did that way before I groveled to IRC for help00:25
arthur_question? i installed jaunty during installation i checked no password required to log in option, is there a way to enable a user login now? so it takes user name and passwd to log in? ???00:25
arflebarflethe9a3eedi: what driver are you using with X.org?00:25
the9a3eediarflebarfle, official nvidia drivers00:25
VCoolioarthur_: system > administration > login window, there an option there to check00:25
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about Mixer00:25
glitsj16jlaroche: only suggestion i have is to check launchpad for possible bugs on that --> bugs.launchpad.net00:26
darkhammhey people, i only want to know if for gnu/linux we have something like the remote control for the iphone, but for symbian and others....00:26
the9a3eediarflebarfle, speaking of network, I seem to have wierd wireless issues.. but I doubt it's the problem with X00:26
the9a3eediit just crashes totally randomly00:26
dryfyreany way to expand to two monitors00:26
foul_owlanyone know how to fix grub error 2?00:26
the9a3eediwell, seemingly randomly00:26
arflebarflethe9a3eedi: oh, well I am using nvidia hardware too, but I am using older nvidia hardware for the most part.  One machine is using a newer Ubuntu than the other though.  I avoid upgrading Ubuntu because every upgrade is like 2 steps forward and 1 step back.00:26
coleysglitsj16: Yes. =o00:26
coleysdarkhamm: Yes&00:26
sadriscoleys: I believe I am already using that; I set up the LVM and raid1 with the Manually Partition option in partman, for the XFS, I am going to another terminal and making the partition00:26
jlarocheglitsj16 - so basically, if a package breaks something essential in Ubuntu you basically just have to reinstall your entire OS?00:27
dryfyreis there a hackers irc channel00:27
coleyssadris: You need to specifiy the install locations from the installer. It is a mandatory step.00:27
blackest_knightanom01y:  you need your user name eg anom01y@ <-example mounting remote root /home/anom01y/myremoteroot/00:27
coleyssadris: Otherwise you are not specifiying where to install everything.00:27
watinoIf I dd an iso of a live cd  to a partition and flag it as boot, should it work?00:27
darkhammcoleys: tell me more00:27
coleysdarkhamm: Bluetooth? Infrared00:27
darkhammcoleys: bluetooth00:28
arflebarflethe9a3eedi: someone told me that the Intel video cards have better support, and the drivers are open source, but from what I have seen there are bugs there too, and the OpenGL support may not be as good for gaming or CAD in some cases.00:28
sXeChrisguys what is a good program for recording videos?00:28
coleysdarkhamm: Bluetooth is preinstalled if available on computer, so you have the icon in your system tray, and you can pair devices quite easily.00:28
safruhanithanks for your patience glitsj1600:29
Drekievery time i mount an ISO image every file on the image has ;1 behind it, anyone know why?00:29
blackest_knightsXeChris:  depends on the source00:29

the9a3eediarflebarfle, Intel drivers are probably the best out there from what I heard. Too bad their cards suck00:29
sXeChrisany other one?00:29
sXeChriscuz that one lags00:29
the9a3eediguess I really can't do much about this00:29
nellmathewhey guys i was wondering, is there a vm or something similar that allows me to run a virtual machine or install an operating system to a partition from within ubuntu (key: to a PARTITION, not to a "virtual disk")00:29

arflebarfleIs there a good way to restore the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace behavior in Ubuntu?  I would like the ability to restart X sometimes, and it seems that I lost that recently.00:31
coleysf00dn00b: doubt it.00:31
coleysarflebarfle: !dontzap00:32
f00dn00bi've been using it for the past few days00:32
coleys!dontzap | arflebarfle00:32
ubottuarflebarfle: To 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.00:32
f00dn00byes i know about dontzap00:32
Drekicoleys right click and open with archive mounter00:32
danbhfivef00dn00b: yeah, but you should bring it's discussion to #ubuntu+100:32
nmatrix9anyone know Fezie?00:32
OttifantSirjlaroche: in terminal, do "dpkg -l xserver-xorg-video-intel" and see if you have that driver. I believe that's the correct one for your graphics card.00:32
f00dn00bi always disable dontzap cos its annoying not to be able to reset the x server00:32

BigJackHow do i change the "login:" prompt in sshd ?00:39
halberdlike for example, mounting an external hard disk00:39
blackest_knightarthur_ go to system admin login window and lok under the security tab00:39
halberdhow do you do that in ubuntu without the mnt command?00:39
mzzhalberd: connect hard disk, wait for it to automount :)00:39
coleysowen1: You can install unetbootin from command line if you have jaunty.00:39

alexander_I really love ubuntu!00:41
trendIstarnes how can I tell :/00:41
danbhfivetrend: that link was bad00:41
blackest_knighthalberd:  easiest way is add diskmounter to your top panel right click top panel and add diskmounter all other drives will show up on there and you can mount from there00:41
coleysowen1: It works for harddrives, it specifically has an option for harddrives. =o00:42
mzzhalberd: if you do need to edit fstab for some reason there's some gui thing out there to do it with, but that isn't actually much more convenient than opening it in your favorite editor running as root.00:42

marks256i have a terminal network setup. Is it possible to "pipe" program to other users? say if one user was running a program, could that user just pipe the program to another user?00:42
mzzhalberd: so if this really is an external drive you'll probably want to figure out why it's not automounting and fix that.00:42

lstarnesK99Brain: LTS, not LSB00:44
K99Brainlstarnes, LOL, sorry00:44
mzzmarks256: you create one of those, making sure the target user can read it and the source user can write it, then the source user runs their pipeline ending in "> thatnamedpipe" and the target user runs "< thatnamedpipe" into their end of the pipeline.00:44
mzzmarks256: I'd expect that to work, but it's not like I've done it recently.00:44
dhqi have a dell m1530 now i have 3 jacks which support 5.1 channel. the problem is i cant get kubuntu to work with i00:45
marks256mzz, woh that is confusing :) all these new terms :D00:45
K99Brainlstarnes, i was thinking to the lsb_release command, lol00:45
meoblast001my mom's computer is acting extremely weird.... after so long, her cursor won't click nor change states.... i reinstalled her system and it didn't fix it00:45
meoblast001any idea of what could be wrong?00:45
trendhow can I upgrade by the command line? edit http://pastebin.com/m65eb7a31 to what?00:45
owen1coleys: is it possible to install .iso into my usb hard drive? or do i have to burn a CD?00:45
lstarnesmeoblast001: sounds like a hardware problem00:45
mzzmarks256: they take a little getting used to, and they're not that useful if you're a single user and have a nonancient shell.00:45
Quatrokinghey there00:45
Hilikusmeoblast001: maybe the mouse?00:46
BigJacktry a new mouse00:46
coleysowen1: Unetbootin.00:46
marks256mzz, what exactly is a pipe? i just know the word. honestly i got this idea from the TV show 24... :$00:46
BigJackor check your memory?  that does weird stuff00:46
meoblast001Hilikus: no... because the cursor state doesn't actually change (wait, ready, resize)00:46
QuatrokingI've got a 64-bit CPU, but from Intel and not AMD. Do I need the 64-bit iso or the i386?00:46
Drekicoleys i tried what you said to mount that iso and got "/dev/loop: No such file or directory"00:46
coleysowen1: Unetbootin installs iso to usbs/harddrives, aswell as a bootloader for them, so at boot of your computer you will have the option to boot that device.00:46
rskiQuatroking: both work00:46
Hilikusmeoblast001: this is in ubuntu?00:46
meoblast001lstarnes: is there actually a specific piece of hardware dedicated to clicking and changing the mouse state?00:46
lstarnesQuatroking: use either00:46
meoblast001Hilikus: yes00:46
coleysDreki: sudo mount file.iso /location/ -t iso9660 -o ro,loop00:46
owen1coleys: ok. sudo unetbootin.  i'll try it now. btw, i have 2GB partition on my usb drive. it's FAT32. is it ok?00:46
mzzmarks256: a "pipe" or "pipeline" is a frequently used term for a sequence of two or more commands with output from one being input to the next00:46
Raviousanyone know how to add an empty directory to the sysfs?00:46
lstarnesmeoblast001: the button of the mouse itself has something to do with it00:47
bewarea pipe as i know it is a conceptual object which a data stream goes in on one end, and comes out at the other00:47
Quatrokingrski: so the AMD64 iso just works on intel cpu's too, as long as they're 64-bit?00:47
coleysowen1: Yes.00:47
meoblast001lstarnes: well.. it won't change states (ready, wait, resize)00:47
coleysQuatroking: Yes.00:47
rskiQuatroking: yes00:47
mzzmarks256: (so when you're using "|" in a shell command)00:47
QuatrokingThen the description is awfully confusing.00:47
coleysowen1: And the command is... sudo apt-get install unetbootin00:47
marks256mzz, oh ok...00:47
rskiQuatroking: report it as a bug then00:47
HilikusQuatroking: agree00:47
seeksSo, does anyone here use samba at all?00:47
mzzQuatroking: historical reasons.00:47
OttifantSirQuatroking: do as rski said.00:47
meoblast001Hilikus: lstarnes: i'm thinking about just downgrading her to 8.10, is there a chance that will work?00:47
coleysHilikus: Work for yeah :)?00:48
marks256mzz, i've only used the | command once or twice but i think i know how it works. basically it takes the output of one program and puts it into the input of another, right?00:48
lstarnesmeoblast001: possibly, but I;m not sure00:48
K99Braintrend, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HardyUpgrades00:48
Raviousseeks: samba&nfs00:48
mzzQuatroking: I'm probably oversimplifying, but roughly it's intel adopting an architecture first used by amd in their athlon64 cpus.00:48
BigJackseeks: i use samba00:48
mzzQuatroking: (for extra confusion: intel has an older 64 bit architecture that's completely different)00:48
seeksRighto, well, I've got at a pretty simple question about it00:48
Hilikuscoleys: no, i don't really want to add an fstab for that. there must be a way to tell it to just ignore it00:48
mzzmarks256: yep00:48
seeksRegarding the "get" command, how do I use wildcards?00:48
danbhfivetrend: try: sudo do-release-upgrade00:48
majnooni usually just back up important stuffs and do a CLEAN install00:48
meoblast001ok.... i have a Hardy 64-bit live cd... i'l try that00:48
marks256mzz, sweet i'll look into mkfifo and play around with it :)00:48
seeksI've got some long, convoluted filenames, haha.00:49
coleysHilikus: there isn't in nautilus. Dolphin has the option to hide. (If you like KDE)00:49
bewareamd64 == em64t == the normal 64 bits architecture supported by modern i386 based PC's00:49
trenddanbhfive cool.. thanks!00:49
mzzmarks256: oh, and another option is to use sudo inside a regular pipeline.00:49
SHOOT3Ryou guys care to help me with this install of ubuntu? I'm getting an error message on install00:49
trendK99Brain thanks :)00:49
owen1coleys: i am doing it now. last time a tried (usb-creator) i got black frozen screen with blinking cursur..00:49
danbhfivetrend: let me know if it works00:49
beware(as opposed to ia64 which is an older architecture for some server CPU's)00:49
marks256mzz, and how is that done?00:49
coleysowen1: unetbootin is awesome, I expect sucess. =)00:49
mzzmarks256: but to do that you need root (or at least need to convince root to give you the necessary sudo privs)00:49
mzzmarks256: you know what sudo does?00:49
lstarnestrend: try http://pastebin.com/d1a9f609300:49
owen1coleys: btw, i've been told it's only working with live cd, so alternat-CD will not work.00:49
marks256mzz, lol yes :)00:49
Hilikuscoleys: well nautilus is getting the info that there is a device that can be mounted from somewhere, so maybe not nautilus but a system setting to hide that device as mountable00:50
lstarnestrend: after doing that, run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade00:50
BigJackseeks: i'm a samba noob too. but if you're trying to access a path in command line use quotes ""  cd "/path/to file with spaces.whatever"00:50
=== dipplum_ is now known as dipplum
lstarnestrend: then you should be able to upgrade to 8.04 using sudo do-release-upgrade00:50
BigJackthat's all i can help with that00:50
_Apple_can some one please help me?00:50
coleysHilikus: If you search google, there is weird changes you can make.00:50
cobra-the-jokerhey there guys ...i have got 2 issues here with a laptop00:50
trendlstarnes cool.. i'm doing do-release-upgrade right now00:50
coleys!question | _Apple_00:50
ubottu_Apple_: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)00:50
mzzmarks256: well, if you have a pipeline that generates output for a command that needs to run as root, you can do "blah | sudo command", if you know what I mean, and "blah" runs as you while "command" runs as root. "sudo" can take -u to switch to a non-root user.00:50
sXeChriswhy does my computer start lagging like crazy whenever i open gtk-recordmydesktop?00:50
cobra-the-jokerone .....i cant get the wireless working in the pavilon HP00:51

_Apple_can some one please help me set up my monitors00:51
owen1coleys: see u soon, i am rebooting00:51
coleyscobra-the-joker: lspci | grep -i network00:51
Drekicoleys thanks that worked00:51
mzzmarks256: but that only works if the user typing that is allowed to sudo to the other user. The mkfifo approach I mentioned doesn't need any special privs like that.00:51
coleysDreki: =)00:51
mzzmarks256: so they're different use cases.00:51
coleysowen1: Okay!00:51
cobra-the-jokercoleys ....i dont have it right now ..its for my freind00:51
Ravious_Apple_: Whats the problem your having setting them up?00:51
cobra-the-jokerit seem to be working00:51

marks256mzz, ok. would you be kind enough to step me through how to do something basic? i just want to see it work, then i can play with it myself00:52
cobra-the-jokercoleys  , is there is any way to force the wireless switch00:52
seeksmzz:  Well, I'm really quite the samba newbie.  I actually haven't gotten that far yet00:52
coleyscobra-the-joker: Bios?00:53
seeksmzz:  It gives me problems trying to mount it, but no problems if I just use "smbclient," for whatever reason.00:53
_Apple_Ravious: I've spent the past 5 hours trying to set up Dual monitors00:53
_Apple_and I have no thing show for it00:53
coleysDreki: to unmount after using that command type: sudo umount file.iso OR sudo umount /location/00:53
mzzseeks: try "mount -t cifs '\\\sharename' /mnt" iirc00:53
jlaroche_Apple_ - sounds like a typical Ubuntu moment00:53

mzzmarks256: your original question was "Is it possible to "pipe" program to other users", so I thought you meant the shell pipeline kind of "pipe", with one half running as a different user00:57

Are there better options?01:55

twig11What are the steps to take to see if a wireless network adapter is working correctly and configure it to connect to a wireless network? I just used ndisgtk to install the wireless drivers for a Linksys WUSB11v4 USB wireless network adapter, and I'm not sure where to go from here.02:00

te_twig11: also: iwlist02:02
Pirate_Huntercoleys: is there a way for me to install that type of kernel manually?02:02
chris0twig11:  1) sudo modprobe ndiswrapper, 2) iwconfig. If it's recognized in iwconfig, the easiest thing to do is gksudo gedit /etc/modules, and add 'ndiswrapper' to the end, and then reboot02:02
coleysPirate_Hunter: Search synaptic?02:03

IceWindiG9,  you may also do the followinf use fdisk to list any existing partition in it like: fdisk -l /dev/sdc02:21
chris0twig11: there should be a wireless applet in there. You could do it without, in the command line, but it gets messy. I've found that the applet is the easiest.02:21

iG9IceWind, can I message you the dmesg output, I think it's having problems02:26
IceWindiG9, yeap02:26
chris0twig11: it doesn't show up on mine either...dunno why. Try saying gnome-netstatus-applet into a terminal. That should get it back for you02:27
bazhangAVW, as soreau says you can try it; if that does not work then a minimalist distro would be the choice02:27
gogetatwig11: then add it back its called network-manager-applet02:27

m0r0nSo far it's been about 5 weeks or more I think more04:00
fwaokdaSeaPhor, ati radeon 4850 and just installed04:00
wisemanSeaPhor: I tried both.  Actually, trying to install the proprietary driver is what messed everything up.04:00
rockym0r0n, well, idk04:00
rockyit might take awhile04:00
wisemanAnd I can't seem to put it back.04:00
Okaybrb later04:01
RudyValenciaI've tried removing pulseaudio to see if it's causing the problem, happens both ways.04:01
rockym0r0n, do you REALLY need it?04:01
SeaPhorfwaokda, have you activated the restricted drivers?04:01
gogetafretegi: sudo gedit /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/wireless-ipw-power.conf04:01
wisemanI tried resetting xorg in the recovery mode on startup, no luck04:01
gogetayou can boost the card setting there04:01
zer0nefretegi: focus! Do you wan't to change your iwconfig or not??? terminal : man iwconfig ....04:01
fwaokdaSeaPhor, it was working until i tried the restricted drivers... then i disabled them when they ran slow... after disabling them now I have horrible resolution choices04:01
wisemanI've been dicking with this on and off for a couple months04:01

m0r0nNo but I've been running to the mailbox after the first 4 weeks expecting it lol04:01
rockydon't get too excited now04:01
fwaokdaSeaPhor, btw I have dual displays don't know if that matters04:01
fretegilol yea, just trying to help contribute :) finally getting to wear i know a bit around linux wanna help as u all have helped me04:02
ZidaneRickhey guys, ok im running UNR and everytime i boot the system i get a prompt to enter password for "default keyring to unlock"04:02
SeaPhorfwaokda, ATI is way behind when it comes to dual displays in linux04:02
fretegiare there any downsides to boosting power to wireless?04:02
ZidaneRickis there anyway to stop it?04:02
gogetafretegi: less battery life04:02
fretegino biggie, anyway to turn off the wireless card completely, the external power switch doesnt seem to work with linux04:03
fwaokdaSeaPhor, well what can i do?04:03
brian1i just installed "super ubuntu" aka super os  and i gotta say its pretty good,, all it is , is just a suped up ubuntu 9.04 but its solid04:03
SeaPhorfwaokda, if you just installed and all was ok, i'd go back to that by re-installing, and not enabling the restricted04:04
fwaokdaSeaPhor, if I can only use the generic ones that worked after install I'll use them... would like to use compiz but if i can't at least would like to get back to the regular ones04:04
gogetafretegi: hardware switches  always work04:04
wisemanso fretegiq, SeaPhor, I've also tried using envy to install the newest drivers, and that moved me ahead a bit, but now I can't get my resolution all the way back up to 1280x80004:04
RudyValenciaI'm using Ubuntu 9.04 on a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop. Why are sounds choppy on all sound devices (occurs on both the built-in Intel 82801CA-ICH3/Cirrus Logic CS4205 and a separate C-Media USB headset)?04:04
tommostRudyValencia: How is CPU usage?04:04
fretegijust turned the hardware switch off04:04
ZidaneRickhey guys, ok im running UNR and everytime i boot the system i get a prompt to enter password for "default keyring to unlock"04:04
fwaokdaSeaPhor, there isn't a way to just re-enable the drivers I was using before activating the restricted ones?04:04
fretegion this lappy, still working lol04:04
fretegii dont get it04:04
RudyValenciatommost: CPU usage while playing sounds04:05
brian1choppy how so??04:05
SeaPhorfwaokda, uncheck it the same way you checked it04:05
tommostRudyValencia: Yeah.04:05
fwaokdai did but that didn't work :(04:05
RudyValenciatommost: I'm new to Linux, how do I check that?04:05
gogetafretegi: odd04:05
brian1when you say choppy like , idstortion, laggin04:05
fretegithats what i said... i dont get it, will boosting power increse connectivity and speed as well?04:06
tommostUh, System -> Administration -> System Monitor is the menu, I think.04:06
RudyValenciabrian1: choppy like parts of the sound are missing, or pops occur04:06

SeaPhorwiseman, ATI+compiz = nogo, i mean it somewhat works but is officially not supported by ATI as of yet04:06

SeaPhorin 8.04 wiseman ?04:07
brian1im a noob too so dont listen to me, i just wanted to sound smart. lol04:07
wisemanyes SeaPhor, 8.0404:07
gogetafretegi: to boost the card use iwconfig txpower 3004:07
gogetasudo iwconfig04:07
SeaPhorwiseman, then go back to 8.04...04:07
wisemanedbian: I have an ati radeon HD 2400 mobile04:07
wisemanSeaPhor: I do h ave 8.04....04:08
edbianwiseman: With what driver?04:08
gogetafretegi: sudo iwconfig ath0 txpower 3004:08
tommostRudyValencia: My thoughts are that it is an issue with PulseAudio, which can have issues when there is high CPU usage in my experience.04:08
SeaPhorwiseman, i am still on 8.04 on 3 of my 8 boxes04:08
wisemanedbian: I've tried the proprietary driver fglrx and the open source driver04:08
tommostRudyValencia: If it works in XP we know it's not a hardware problem.04:08
pengo-ubuhey guys how do i find what driver and the version jaunty is using?04:08
pengo-ubufor wireless04:08
tommostRudyValencia: And since it happens with two devices it's probably not a driver issue.04:08
edbianwiseman: And neither one allows hardware acceleration?04:08
tommostRudyValencia: How old is this laptop?04:09
edbianwiseman: Do you know about the compiz check script??  http://forlong.blogage.de/entries/pages/Compiz-Check04:09
wisemanedbian: I seemed to get the proprietary driver to kind of sort of work, but I cannot get my resolution back to 1280x80004:09
RudyValenciatommost: I got it second-hand so I can't say how old it is04:09
tommostWell, what CPU does it have?04:09

mobi-sheeptommost: Only asking just because it have 'swift' in it does't necessarily mean it's faster,04:13
wisemanedbian: It shows a variety of resolutions from 320x200 to 1024x768, with a star by the 1024x76804:13
TuxedoBondWill using Xfce with Gnome installed keep the Gnome files running in memory?04:14

fretegiim gotta run for a bit, cable guy here, gotta disconnect some coax stuff04:14
brian1i got it04:14
edbianwiseman: This is my basic understanding thus for.  Some software in the system (probably X11) looks at your monitor's available resolutions and your video cards resolutions and give you a list of what the two have in common (acceptable configurations) which is what shows up in the GUI screen resolution app.04:14

fretegiit runs damn well now, after some tinkering, just learned today that compiz screws with it, gonna make another user with no compiz settings and try next week, see if faster04:16
edbianwiseman: So 1024 x 768 is not the highest resolution your card can output but it is the highest listed by xrandr?  Is this correct?04:16
wisemanedbian: 100% correct.04:16
tommostRudyValencia: Hmm... well, so it could be PulseAudio, or it could be something wrong at the ALSA level (PulseAudio is a "sound server" that all of your apps talk to to which in turn talks to ALSA, which is a lower-level interface).04:16
edbianwiseman: Are you on the fglrx driver right now?04:16
gogetafretegi: or just turn it off in prefs aperance04:16
tommostRudyValencia: We can try killing PulseAudio and seeing if ALSA works alone.04:16
wisemanedbian: I'm not sure....I think so04:16
RudyValenciatommost, I removed PulseAudio and it still has the same issue04:16
wisemanhow do I see for sure?04:16

edbianwiseman: I think that complete removal is the same as purging.04:36

edbiangogeta: What does deborphin do?  purge packages?04:36
wisemanedbian: ARMING MISSILE04:36
soreauedbian: Sure, you can load and unload modules all day long. That doesn't mean they'll work when other installed components are conflicting04:36
SeaPhorwiseman, edbian if you do then do sudo apt-get remove --purge envy*04:36
ctmjrwatson516, run this in a terminal it will reset xorg to default sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg then reboot your box and what nvidia card do you have?04:37

wisemanedbian: i used the command line04:37
gogetaedbian: yes usefull for cleaning out a system04:37
edbiansoreau: So loading a module doesn't mean that it's being used by the system?  (You're turning my world upside-down here)04:38
wisemanlooks like it finished04:38
soreauwiseman: The only thing you can do is use envy to uninstall the proprietary driver and hope it does actually undo what it did. Removing envy itself means you'll be left with whatever you currently have04:38
edbianwiseman: Out of curiosity since envy is gone now.  Run xrandr -q again and see if things changed.04:38

mobi-sheepRudyValencia: I was wandering away.04:39
soreauedbian: I'm saying that there are other components, libs, files, etc in addition to the modules that make the driver work. It's not just rmmod this and modprobe that simple for graphics drivers04:39
RudyValencianeed the URL for the paste output again, mobi-sheep?04:39

mobi-sheepRudyValencia: Na. I'm good. I have separate window for highlights.04:40
edbianwiseman: Anything having to do with envy on your system04:40
edbianSeaPhor: soreau: so should I have only 1 driver installed on my system for a graphics card at any given time to be sure what driver is being used?04:40
SeaPhorwiseman, there should be NO results04:40
RudyValenciamobi-sheep: it's still skipping04:41
wisemanSeaPhor: OH NOES04:41
edbianwiseman: locate is just a system wide search.  It's searching for anything with "envy" in the name.04:41

WindowsUserSuperMiguel: the installer mucks with fdisk, runs mdadm and formats the resultant /dev/mdX device when you click go05:22
CatEateredbian: sure, why not? someone else said xrandr, i didn't05:22
kacendapouchedfox - cheese says 'no camera found!' and the 'camera' dropdown box in preferences is just greyed out05:22
Scunizikacenda: have you tried "cheese" to see if it works?05:22
edbianCatEater: xrandr is used to configure your video settings :)  Resolution size etc etc.05:23
CatEateryeah i know, that's why i'm confused05:23

coffeemansoreau: any ideas?05:23
CatEateri don't know why anyone would even suggest it05:23
CatEateri installed vbox-additions, so that thing should adjust my resolution, right?05:23
jon5000soreau, thanks. i will look into that05:23
edbianCatEater: More specifically what is your problem then?  (Forget about xrandr)05:23
soreaucoffeeman: I didn't see your response to my last question05:23
CatEatermy problem is that ubuntu only runs at 800x600 and i want it at 1024x60005:24
pouchedfox(you can use "gstreamer-properties" to select the video input source)05:24
michael__my removable devices like usb is not appearing on my Windows OS virtual box05:24
michael__wat wil i do05:24
edbianCatEater: Than we do need xrandr!!  funny funny.05:24
CatEateredbian:cool, what do i type?05:24
edbianCatEater: in ubuntu run "xrandr -q" to see what the virtual card supports.05:24
kacendapouchedfox -  thanks i ran that command, when clicking 'test' under 'default input' in the 'video' tab i get 'video for linux 2: cannot identify device /dev/video0'05:24
ScuniziCatEater: I came in late.. you have vbox installed and you can't get more than 800x600? right.. is it a windows guest?05:24
ScuniziCatEater: or ubuntu guest?05:25
CatEater"xrandr -q" doesn't list 1024x600, just 5 others05:25
pouchedfoxkacenda: none of the other choices in the pulldown sources menu works?05:25
CatEaterwin host, ubuntu guest05:25
coffeemansoreau: sorry, i missed your last ?  kernel seems to run fine, but hangs with tty processes terminating05:25
CatEaterif i could do ubuntu native, i would05:25
edbianCatEater: What is the max listed?05:25
edbianCatEater: What is preventing you from doing that?05:26
ScuniziCatEater: can you drag the edges of the window for the guest and have it resize automatically?05:26
soreaucoffeeman: at what point is that? when booting?05:26
kacendapouchedfox - nope, all the same thing & the 'device' menu is grayed out...  seems like it's just not being detected, maybe there's a module i'm not loading that i need to be?05:26
CatEateredbian: max listed is 1360x76805:26
pouchedfoxkacenda: if that doesnt see it, then you might need to check to see if theres drivers for the webcam05:26
CatEaterScunizi: no, it stays at 800x600 in the guest's view05:26
edbianCatEater: That is an odd size huh.  Do you want to switch your resolution or do you want me to help you install ubuntu to the HDD natively?05:26
nogagplzCatEater, installed the guest additions?05:26

ScuniziCatEater: do a Ctrl+G while focus is on the guest and then try again05:27
CatEateredbian: i want to run ubuntu in a vm, at 1024x60005:27

pronoyvoss a bit yes :) you see CLI is the actual thing that unix/linux is powered by07:25
karatekickznvidia with proper drivers installed07:25
Jordan_Urohan: Yes07:25
SkaperenNitrodist: you have a partition you want Ubuntu to not touch ... you have a special case ... you need to select the partitions to install on to manually07:25
Nitrodistso I'm guessing it's probably safer to use acronis to repartition than to let ubuntu do ti?07:25
karatekickzit has the resolution in xp07:25

losherNitrodist: if you partition by hand, you know exactly what you'll get. I think that's a plus, but you have to have some idea what you're doing07:25
olimonescan't find where the info is. i'm looking it up07:25
SkaperenNitrodist: if XP already takes up the whole disk (factory installed XP will) then you MUST repartition the XP in a way that keeps it safe using the appropriate tool07:25
pronoyScunizi  but i have an english one too which i think i'll use most...but with excessive multimedia keys07:26

Skaperentracyanne: what do you want the partitioning to be like?  are you preserving existing partitions?  resizing them?07:28
pronoyScunizi how to rectify this ?07:28
Jordan_Urohan: None that I know of, PAE itself slows things down if you don't need it ( though obviously you do ) and there may be other tweaks that are slightly detrimental to Desktops but I don't think there is anything that won't work with -server and the performance difference is probably negligable07:29

tracyannelegend2440 yes, but I want it by default, which means a cutom install07:33
Skaperentracyanne: if I was going to be installing 100 machines, I'd first install a master, then replicate it07:33
sn00zerubuntunewbie: I used to have that problem. If I left it alone sometimes it would catch up and recover, sometimes it crashed and I had to kill it. I always had the problem when I opened too many tabs.07:33
olimonesyes it did07:33
Jordan_U`boz: ATI cards don't have great support right now ( though it's getting better ). If System > Administration > Hardware Drivers shows proprietary drivers available they will probably give you better performance07:33

owen1how to install only dependencies of a package?07:34

afvcan you copy/past the first line of "card 0: .." ?07:34
Skaperenlosher: I was just referring to him running away before he gets answers ... but yeah, too many people think they are leet because the found ubuntu07:34
ubuntunewbiesn00zer: It's weird , it seldom having this kind of problem .Able to browse and do all stuff but still it's grey out07:34
WIGGMPkSkaperen: think they are "leet" and who are you? are you "leet"? or just 12?07:35
tracyannelegend2440 I've looked into that I didn't see anything about changing default partition07:35

Skaperenlosher: to use a computer with any OS properly, one has to do some learning ... the trouble is, the easier the user interface gets, the more it lures people in to their doom ... Windows is the worst ... Ubuntu can do this more and more, now, too07:35
tracyanne Skaperen not all the same hardware07:35
ubuntunewbiesn00zer: I am not even opening any flash page or heavy graphic website , hopefully it recover , i still can open another firefox and run well with it.Just asking it's kinda annoy while reading and grey out07:36
SkaperenWIGGMPk: I'm leet enough for you to not worry07:36
sn00zerubuntunewbie: I don't know, my issue was lack of resources I suppose. An upgrade to newer release of OS helped, when FF had a new release it was entirely fixed. (This was with FF 2 back in Fiesty)07:36

Skaperentracyanne: if they differ by disk size, of course they need different partitioning07:37
Jordan_Uowen1: You could run "sudo apt-get install packagename --no-act" and copy the dependencies that it lists to be installed, then run "sudo apt-get install" with that list of packages07:37

imsscunizi,c-s-b, One directly on cable modem and the other thru the cable connected.07:38
ubuntunewbiesn00zer: thank you again , ;-)07:38
tracyanneSkaperen yes. That's why I want to create a custom installer that will 1) partiton by default and 2) install the extra applications i usually install07:38
afvolimones, 2nd post of that page (2nd page)07:38
WIGGMPkSkaperen: the fact that you attach a title "leet" to yourself just shows you are arrogant and most likely condescending towards other.. meaning.. YOU stunt the growth of intelligence (in my opinion)07:39
Skaperentracyanne: so you have some kind of parition rule logic, such as "this for /boot, that for swap, all the rest for /home" ?07:39
Scuniziims: if you have a router, not cable modem, plug both machines into the router.. otherwise you'll need a crossover cable to tie the two together.07:39
afvolimones, do you have a dell laptop, by the way?07:39
C-S-Bims: so you want to filshare or do a ics of sorts?07:39
`bozthanks for the help jordan...07:39
olimonesno it is a hp07:39
SkaperenWIGGMPk: if that's how you want to define your virtual world, who am I to say that's wrong07:39
Scuniziims: some cable modems are also routers.. if they have connections for more than one computer then most likely they are also a router.07:39
newb2linuxIs there a command to increase the size of a partition in linux ?07:39
tracyanneSkaperen usually 12 gig root 2 to 4 gig swap depending on netbook or notebook the rest home07:40
olimonesdv7 2185dx07:40
losherSkaperen: 10G for root, twice the amount of ram for swap, and the rest /home.07:40
afvolimones, what is the output of "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0|grep -i codec" then?07:40
nazgulnewb2linux: you can use gparted if you'd like to resize using a GUI app.07:40
imsscunizi,c-s-b, Is it possible to make one my server(the 1 connected to cable)?07:40
dotwhy can't I watch a bought dvd on ubuntu? It gives an error all the time07:40
dotubuntu 9.0407:40
Skaperentracyanne: but you'd have some kind of logic that determines what the partition sizes should be, based on scanning hardware configuration like disk size, memory size, etc07:40
tracyanneSkaperen I've never need more than parity for RAM swap07:40
newb2linuxhmm.. Im running XBMClive.07:40
Scuniziims: yes but I don't know how.07:40
SkyRocknRollhttp://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ in that page which one should i download for python prgramming ?07:40
imsI don't have a router.07:41
newb2linuxwould need to be terminal . .07:41
josh_93Hi. I have a horribly noob question to ask. How do i use terminal to send a file via ftp? I want to transfer it to my /public_html/ DIR, but it keeps transferring it to the "/" home directory.07:41
Jordan_Uowen1: That will install the package, it just won't install recommended packages with it ( only neccisary dependencies )07:41
tracyanneSkaperen Ubuntu already do that07:41
C-S-Bims: loosely guiding, you'd need to install dhcp, dns, etc07:41
Scunizijosh_93: you're trying to upload a file to a remote server?07:41
losherjosh_93: there is a cd command in ftp to change the remote directory...07:41
owen1Jordan_U: that was my question07:41
Skaperentracyanne: actually, I've done my swap sizing based not on how much RAM I have, but based on how fast my disk is ... how fast to read the whole swap space ... I generally configure 30 seconds worth of swap space07:41
olimoneslet me see07:42
imsc-s-b, any http for that?07:42
nazgulnewb2linux: this should have good info to help you along to do it at the command line: http://www.howtoforge.com/linux_resizing_ext3_partitions07:42
C-S-Bims: the other pc would get an address from the servers dhcp.07:42
Jordan_Uowen1: Oh, I misunderstood. Yes, "sudo aptitude install -R packagename" will do what you want07:42
tracyanneSkaperen I use the Mandrake/Mandriva rule of thumb, used to be a MDK user07:42
Skaperentracyanne: so you have your logic to size partitions coded up and ready or even already running?07:42
josh_93losher: like i said.. horrible noob question, its 3AM here and im sleepy.. i have no idea why i did not think to use the CD command.. i kept trying to use the DIR one.. thanks though lol >_<07:42

tracyanneSkaperen But I don't know how07:43
Skaperentracyanne: well, I have zero experience making a new installer with different defaults for Ubuntu ... I've done it for other distros, but that was more just writing some big script07:44

I installed 9.04 (not UNR) on a new netbook ... after installing and rebooting, I added a new user ... but the new user does not show up in the list of users I can manage in the "users and groups" tool ... BUT ... the user actually works fine ... I can login and all seems to work ... I just can't administer it like delete it07:53
tracyanneSkaperen I've had that happen too, I couldn't work out why it happened, so I backed up the user removed the user and recreated the user07:54

afvolimones, instead of "sudo vim /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base" you can use "gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base". you may find it easier ;)07:56
sn00zerafv: It may be easier, but vim is always an adventure :)07:56
tracyanneSkaperen Try creating the user in the Users and Groups, then assign them a different home directory, then edit the user and assign them the same name directory07:57

sn00zerubuntunewbie: Strange isn't it? I think its just you working faster than firefox, or possibly the machine. A RAM upgrade could help?08:00
lstarnespiscooo: that doesn't mean that you can ask here08:00
Skaperentracyanne: the user is complete ... entries in /etc/{groups,passwd,shadow} and its /home directory ... so I'd have to clean up all that or use deluser ... but this is curiosity not a real desire to delete08:01
howiei thought ubuntu was practically deb...?08:01
Skaperentracyanne: wherever this tool keeps its database of what it manages, it failed to add it there08:01
lstarneshowie: it's based on debian, but it isn't debian08:01
vosshowie, no debian is almost ubuntu ;-)08:01
howiei thought ubuntu was just easier to install :008:01
Skaperenubuntu stole code from debian (legal, it's open source) ... and improved it08:02
tracyanneSkaperen OK, I actually had to back the user up, it was on a clients machine, and I didn't notice until I was giving her some lessons, and she had already downloaded a bunch of Music and Photos08:02
tracyanneSkaperen but I don't recall any issues with  /etc/{groups,passwd,shadow}08:03
Skaperentracyanne: ah, yeah, then you would have to08:03
