switch10_I'm back stupid shotty iPhone connection03:10
Skaperenndf: what OS are you using to record the USB flash drive with?03:10
nickrudsolexious, mostly people would install a 32bit firefox alongside the 64bit; but I'm not sure that's even necessary any more03:10
solexiousnickrud, know if I would run into problems sharing a /home directory on a partition with a 32 and 64 os sharing it03:10
switch10_I've had a lot of headaches with 64 bit. Mainly with bluez and my printers drivers03:11
nickrudsolexious, now that I can tell you won't be a problem. I share /home between all my ubuntu versions03:11
ndfedbian: lol after re-imaging again this time i didn't even see a boot menu at all, it was entirely replaced by unetbootin's own implementation, and it booted right away! what the fffffffff?03:11
nickrudsolexious, never had a problem with it03:12
solexiousnickrud, great :) was thinking of having another partition with ubuntu studio on it03:12

Skaperenndf: but what OS?  Windows?03:14
switch10_Skaperen: ya he said xp03:15
ndfre-read03:15
nickrudtwig11, you can move all your stuff from /home to a /data directory, delete all other directories by hand, then when you install don't reformat the disk.03:15
nickrudmove anything back from /data that you wanted.03:15
twig11Can Ubuntu be reinstalled without losing the contents of the home folder?03:15
Skaperenndf: it seems a USB drive created with unetbootin, and then touched by certain windows machines, becomes corrupted even if unetbootin worked03:15
ufo_hello i have a little question... :) I need to add ".tor_aliases" to the bashrc file, but i find 2 one is /etc/bash.bashrc  and the other is /usr/share/base-file/dot.bashrc, what is the file i should add the line ".tor_aliases"  ??? thx in advance03:15
Skaperenndf: I don't know if a virus does this, or windows itself03:16
nickrudtwig11, I've never trusted it that much :)03:16
nickrudufo_, either /etc/bash.bashrc or ~/.bashrc03:16
switch10_nickrud: I don't trust it at all03:16
nickrudswitch10_, I've done the move data to /data and reinstall many times though03:17
Skaperenndf: I think the issue is that the USB drive is in FAT format, and Windows can access that03:17
ufo_but can not find the ~/.bashrc03:17
nickrudufo_, it would be in your home directory. you need to show hidden files03:17
ndfSkaperen: i just did a little more testing; it seems to be something to do with the way you unmount on windows - if you 'eject' the usb drive, i get the same problem., but if i just pull it out it's fine lol, a bit contradictory to ideal practice to say the least03:17
switch10_nickrud: I've def lost data. I reinstall quite a bit tho03:17
ufo_ok03:17
switch10_ndf: oh yea that's right03:18
Skaperenndf: actually not contradictory ... by just yanking it, you deprive it of the opportunity to flush out the viral infections03:18
ufo_ok i find it :) thx you guy's03:18
Skaperenflush out -> to the USB drive ... that is03:18
bonez46how can I keep fairly up to date with applications.. and yet not run a risky system.. I don't want to run experimental stuff.. but I hate being far behind with many packages.. Suggestions?03:19
twig11_Can Ubuntu be reinstalled without losing the contents of /home?03:19
Skaperenndf: so I recommend using flashnul or other raw sector writer and just put a straight image on the USB drive03:19
nickrudbonez46, run ubuntu for 3-9 months old; you'd need another distro to keep up any better. Like gentoo03:20
switch10_twig11_: just back up to ext hard drive03:20
Skaperenndf: Windows won't mount it, and viruses won't know it's worth infecting03:20
tsrki have restored my ~/.evolution directory from a backup, but evolution wants me to go through the setup wizard again. why is that happening? where does it store the information about whether it needs to run the setup wizard?03:20
nickrudtsrk, it keeps some config info in ~/.gconf03:21
ndfSkaperen: stop lying03:21
tsrknickrud, oh yeah, i also got ~/.gconf/apps/evolution03:21
Skaperenndf: eh?03:21
ndfwindows does mount it, and viruses have no need to 'infect' files in a linux system - because they are not designed for linux03:22
bonez46nickrud do you run any back stuff or just play it safe?03:22
Skaperenndf: if it's in some other format, Windows won't mount it ... if it's a hard drive (USB flash drives are) then Windows won't mount an ISO on it03:22
ndfthey won't be looking to 'infect' those files03:22
ndfwhat03:22
ndfyou are talking crap03:22
ndfjust shut up03:22
Skaperenndf: sure windows does mount it ... I'm saying *IF* windows cannot or won't mount it ...03:23
Dr_Willisive seen virusis thta just 'trash' files.. :)03:23
nickrudbonez46, I used to run a mx of debian's unstable/experimental. I switched to ubuntu as soon as it came out because it was a stable unstable :)03:23
ndfwhat03:23
ndfno you aren't03:23
ndfyou're just talking03:23
bonez46nickrud I need to run Mailman.. if I just compile from source.. and run that .. I assume that doesn't pose much risk, right?03:23
Skaperenndf: it's in FAT format ... viruses have no idea it's for Linux ... to them it's just some new disk to infect03:23
nickrudno. running from source is the safest way in general03:23
ndfthat doesn't matter03:24
switch10_Skaperen: exactly03:24
ndfthe point is03:24
ndfa virus will be looking for a certain file to 'infect'03:24
Skaperenndf: read up on how unetbootin works ... it installs a boot loader onto a FAT drive and copies all the files from the source ISO03:24
ndfgenerally, it's not going to look for something like vmlinuz or whatever03:24
ndfi know, dick03:24
Skaperenndf: depends on the virus ... many viruses see a new filesystem mounted and will add what they want to it to make it be infected whether it was bootable before or not03:25
jbmigel?register03:25
ndfwhat? that doesn't even mean anything03:25
ndfstop talking03:25
Skaperenndf: they do things like add autorun and boot sectors03:25
nickrudtsrk, not sure, been looking03:25
Skaperenndf: you need to learn how booting works, and how viruses do their nasty deeds, how unetbooting works, and about some alternatives that work better03:26
ndfno i don't03:26
ndfi understand03:26
ndfyou're just telling me everything i allready know03:26
ndfand patronising me telling me i need to learn something03:26
tsrknickrud, ok, thanks, I found something that says it store passwords in ~/.gnome2_private/evolution, but my .gnome2_private is empty (I assume it mounts it from somewhere and it didn't get copied with the rest of my backup). Is that what I need?03:26
ndfjust shut up03:26
Skaperenndf: then fix it yourself and do it right now without whining or asking for any help03:26
nickrudbonez46, especially for something like mailman that's pretty discrete03:26
ctmjr!attitude | ndf03:26

switch10_Um.....03:27
nickrudtsrk, interesting. I have nothing in .gnome_private either03:27

ndflol you don't even know03:27
tsrknickrud, ok03:28
ndfi'm not 'in denial'; i'm telling you the problem is fixed and you just keep going on about how you know my xp box is infected and some virus is doing something. just shut up! nothing is wrong, infected or anything03:28
Skaperenndf: windows infections are the cause of failure of the vast majority of boot failures when unetbootin itself actually works right (which does not always happen)03:28

nickrudnellmathew, should be there already views->highlight mode03:45
ctmjrnellmathew, open gedit then view highlite mode then sources03:45
ndfnickrud: would you suggest ext3 for / and xfs for /home ?03:45
nellmathewnickrud: ah! i was looking around for a plugin or something, didn't even realize that, thanks!03:45
nickrudndf, no opinion really. I blindly use ext303:46

moymoyDr_Willis: is it possible to use more than one ssh private key? .. i have one with the name id_rsa .. but i want to add more keys to access different servers.. i tried putting a renamed key in my .ssh folder, but it doesn't seem to work that way...03:46
nickrudstay on topic, and don't talk about other users here and sure03:46
Skaperenmoymoy: you can use multiple ... just list them in the config file03:47

ndfoh, k03:47
meoblast001how do i fix this from startupmanager update-alternatives: Cannot find alternative `/usr/lib/usplash/gnucube-theme.so'03:47
Skaperenmoymoy: be aware they all get tried and servers will drop connections after so many failures, so too many keys is bad03:47
Dr_Willisi figured im leet enoguh because i figured out how to get logins to the one ssh server with no password prompt. :)03:47

nickrudno, a deb is not needed. you have a link to that file in /etc/alternatives? (I'm slowly remembering alternative systems here)03:50

karatekickzI know04:53
[R]fade__: and your problem is...04:53
karatekickzwhat is the x11 support channel because the /list feature in my xchat is not working04:54

karatekickzxchat is not giving me a proper /list ... I am getting zero results04:57
fade__That's what I'm wondering...  it's mounted with "LABEL=UNIXSHARE         /media/unixshare        ext4    defaults,gid=100        0 0"04:57
[R]karatekickz: you right click then select "server" and "list of channels" then you have to type a serach and hit the button04:58
[R]fade__: well for one, there is no gid option for ext404:58
rwwkaratekickz: as I've said already, #xorg is the discussion channel for the X11 implementation Ubuntu (and most other distros) use04:59

Dr_Willisneil_d:  properties -> click on the icon in the properteris dialog. and select a different icon05:41
rxKaffeegabe_: are you having some error? do you have control of both networks? do you really mean on two different "subnets"? do you have a router to route between those two subnets?05:41

cattellarhi, Im experiencing an annoying sudden high pitch sound on my asus laptop , it started just after installing Ubuntu 64 bit version, but also during ubuntu's installation I had to insert the power adapter jack with extra force since it got a bit deformed, probably I stepped on it. So Im not sure which one could be the cause. The thing is I can still hear the sound while the bios is loading, I even installed ubuntu 32, which didnt give me this issue07:45
cattellar before, but the sound persists. I guess it's a fan, or something related to the hard drive because the sound starts as soon as the hd stops loading things. Any ideas of what can I do?07:45

naftais there a way to install older packages in ubuntu?08:08
Pluxiii have previously only used ubuntu inside of my VMware, i decided i wanted to go ahead and actually install it, i went ahead and partitioned 50 gigs off my HDD, to be honest, i'm not sure how to install it to where i can dual boot my OS's08:08
naftaim trying to get to install mysql 4.0.1608:08
switch10_callum_: I meant just the other guy sorry08:08
naftabut i dont know where to start08:08
naftathe source wont compile08:09
linxing_get source code08:09
Slartnafta: if you can get hold of the deb you can install it using gdebi or similar.. from repositories... I'm not sure08:09
em056do i still need to install my drivers hardware in ubuntu???08:09
callum_why is my sound fuzzed?08:09
[R]Pluxii: its all automatic08:09
Pluxiias of now that partition is unallocated, shold i leave it that way?08:09
[R]Pluxii: when you install it i'll find your other operating system and automatically allow you to boot into it08:09
callum_Like when it makes a computer error or sound the speakers become blurred and make static noise08:09
[R]Pluxii: thats what it has to be08:09

em056why i cant play movies?08:10
[R]nafta: installing old package is only going to help you break your system08:10
naftaI need mysql 4.0.16...08:10
Slartnafta: I'm not sure if the older packages are still kept in the repos or if they are removed once they are replaced by a new version.. but you can always have a look in the old-releases.ubuntu.com repository08:10
[R]nafta: you NEED?08:11
nafta*sigh*....08:11
naftayes..08:11
Slartnafta: but I would suggest compiling it from source instead of using the older package.. they are updated for a reason.. might be a serious reason08:11

mralexandrosame with vmware too right?08:23
[R]em056: vmware is a virtualization environment08:23
rootlinuxusrDoes Awn have an IRC channel?08:23
Slartem056: vmware does the same thing as virtualbox.. neither is useful for running games, if that's the plan08:24
rootlinuxusrNeed some halp setting up the water ripple effect with awn.08:24
[R]poiuy: no08:24
rogstem056: In my opinion Virtualbox has better performance for running 1 or 2 machines on your desktop computer the vmware08:24
switch10_rootlinuxusr: isn't that a compiz effect?08:24
mralexandroSlart, not at all08:24
Dulakpoiuy: the memory space is doubled, not the size of a language type08:24
em056why doesnt virtual box cant be use in gaming?08:25

switch10_em056: to slow08:25
SnaXHow the F do i get to my desktop when in Terminal08:25
[R]em056: 3d isn't very good in virtualbox08:25
poiuy[r], dulak, shouldn't int's be size of the word length of the computer?08:25
[R]SnaX: huh?08:25

switch10_SnaX: startx08:25
mralexandroSlart,  you said if gaming was the plan, i replied not at all:D08:25
Slartmralexandro: ahh =)08:26
mralexandrobut if your bios support hardware virtualisaton, shouldnt it then let you use your graphic card better?08:26
em056ok08:26
SnaXIm in ubuntu. i am in the graphic interface and all08:26
poiuy[r], dulak, thanks08:26
SnaXbut i open terminal from Accessories08:26
SnaXbut how do i navigate in terminal to the desktop.08:26
Slartrogst: not very good at all =/ but it's a start I guess08:26
mralexandrorogst, how do you think it is in vmware compared ?08:26
SnaXim switching over from windows. so its all basically new to me08:27
[R]SnaX: the desktop is in /home/blah/Desktop08:27
em056do i still install my nvidia driver? for my vcard?08:27
tyocdpkg -P is the same than in synaptic select "uninstall completely"?08:27
DulakSnax: ~/Desktop should work08:27
Slartmralexandro: i don't think so... I think the virtualbox people even says their implementation is faster than using the hardware supported extensions08:27
The_Warlockdoesnt jaunty need an xinitrc or xsession?08:27
TrijntjeSnax: cd Desktop is the exact command. You can type `man cd` to read the manual of the cd command08:27
rogstmralexandro: Vmware does not have 3D acceleration in hte virtual machines, expect in Vmware Fusion for Mac08:27
DulakThe_Warlock: it doesn't need it, it will let you use system default sessions, or you can force a session with xsession08:28
Slartem056: in virtualbox? no.. the virtual machine will have an  emulated graphics card.. of some other generic brand.. same thing with network cards, sound cards etc08:28
SnaXah worked. thanks large!08:28
mralexandroSlart, rogst so you guys are saying virtual pc softwares are more developed in mac and pc world?08:28
mralexandrofor now..08:28
mralexandro?08:29
DulakDidn't the new virtualbox make a big thing about 3d accelerated graphics?08:29
Slartmralexandro: I have no idea.. I haven't tried virtualbox or vmware on a windows/mac machine08:29
em056but when i try it it cant detect my usb and cd drive..... what maybe the problem08:29
Slartmralexandro: but I don't think there is much of a difference08:29
The_WarlockDulak: i am using some configs for my urxvt which i need to be loaded at startup08:30
mralexandroSlart,  ok:) guess i can check it out on all of them, it could be my new blog article. ill check it out guys08:30
Bilbo_BagginsI'm assuming Mr. Warlock....but Don't you have a Xsession running?  Gnome / KDE / etc... maybe this site will help.... http://fluxbox.sourceforge.net/docbook/en/html/a802.html08:30

EvelinaI have problem getting rtcwake work. When I run it like: sudo rtcwake -s 120 nothing happens.08:31
mralexandroDulak, well i have played age of mythology in wine so:) everything works i guess:)08:31
rogstmralexandro: They are not more developed, Vmware's enterprise product is still for pc, but their desktop product for Mac Vmware Fusion allows the virutal machine to use the graphics card for 3D08:31
em056it that the latest one?08:31
switch10_em056: sure08:31
EvelinaWhen I use sudo rtcwake -s 120 -m mem the computer suspend and then restart but without showing the desktop.08:31
rTk^cooli was partitioning my hard drive and i didnthave  a cd burner in for the ubuntu iso..and i tried to plug one in and it shrted the circuit lol08:31

naftaanyone know how can i force the dpkg -i to stop trying to meet the dependencies?08:32
Evelina...and sudo rtcwake -s 120 -m disk restart but stop at the progress bar where Ubuntu loads.08:32
rTk^coolnow i get interrupted operation insert recovery cd or other recovery media08:32
mralexandrorogst, so you are saying no point of even testing the 3d feature? after what dulak says i kind of get the feeling something is under development?08:32
rTk^cooli dont have a  windows cd  or a ubuntu cd  or  a recovery  cd..08:32
rTk^coolcan someone please  help me08:32
EvelinaWhy does rtcwake stop working?08:32
em056i think wine is very difficult to use because it have many commands to type to open windows app... what can you say08:32
Dulakmralexandro: the newest version of virtualbox claims 3d accelleration, I have not played with it at all yet08:32
rTk^coolPlease!08:33
rTk^coolanyone have an idea08:33
SnaXwhat.. i cant get this thing to install08:33
Slartmralexandro: the 3d feature is being developed.. last year it didn't even exist.. now it's an experimental feature in virtualbox, at least... who knows.. perhaps in a year or two we'll have full hardware acceleration =)08:33
FlashGordon2000k08:33
mralexandrorTk^cool, what os are you in now?08:33
rTk^coolmyphone08:33
rTk^coolandroid lol08:33
rogstmralexandro: I have not tried how good the 3D acceleration is in virtualbox so that one could be worth a try, but since vmware's products for pc dont offer that functionallity (yet at least) its hard to try :D08:33
rTk^coolmy computer wont start08:33

Bilbo_BagginsIf your comp will not start...You may have burnt the board by trying to plug in a drive while it was running.08:34
mralexandroSlart, :D that would be cool, but i think it will take more time, first they will have to fix the feature so that it can be optimized be supported hardware, that is supported from the "root"(bios":D08:34
rTk^cooldont say that.08:34
rTk^coolit starts i just get an error08:35
Bilbo_BagginsKk, then there is something to work with.08:35
rTk^cooli was partitioning my hd08:35
mralexandrorTk^cool, only computer in house?08:35
rTk^coolthen i shrted the circuit08:35
rTk^coolnow i start up and  it  saysinterrupted operation08:35
switch10_rTk^cool: man I bet it's just the hard drive then08:36
Slartmralexandro: I'm not actually sure they are aiming for the full thing.. just having accelerated graphics would be a big advantage.. sound cards, network card and other stuff isn't so important... they might even just be aiming for ati and nvidia cards and ignoring the rest.. but even that would be a big thing08:36
rTk^coolwell my bitchass step mom has  a pw  on  hers08:36
rTk^coolit wont let me get into system recovery08:36
em056is there a block file in ubuntu???08:36
Slartmralexandro: but this is getting offtopic for #ubuntu  , go try the 3d acceleration stuff in virtualbox.. don't expect to much though08:36
rTk^cooli have  two hard drives in this  computer08:36
MadpilotrTk^cool, language, thanks. Also, trying to hotpllug a drive = not too clever...08:36
rTk^coolboth with  windowsxp08:36

Slartnah-o: yes, offtopic.. #hardware might be better.. .. but if you count out pets, small children and so on, I don't think there is a problem with having the case open.. it might look ugly though and get a bit dusty in there.. but what computer doesn't get dusty08:41

sgleo87anybody here who can help me with a gnome do problem? when I let gnome-do launch at startup the docky bar does not show up and I cannot summon it to enter commands (although the notification icon shows up and I can go into the preferences menu, etc.) But when I close it through the system monitor and then start it normally after boot it works just fine...anybody know what causes this?08:50
moymoyrootlinuxusr: also, if you want to make menus from the gnome-panels transparent, you'll have to set one for 'gnome-panel' also08:50
moymoyrootlinuxusr: Gnome-panel08:50

Kartagis[R], it goes back to ~09:05
SlartKartagis: rm ./~  doesn't work?09:05
[R]Kartagis: what are you doing?09:05
[R]what do yuou mean it "goes back"09:05
moymoyrootlinuxusr: hmm.. are you sure? try changing up the numbers... i only have 'Gnome-panel' , 'PopupMenu' entries... and my menus are transparent09:05
SlartKartagis: or simply use the full path.. that might work too09:05
Kartagis[R], when I type rm -rf \~ and hit Tab, it is completed to /home/username09:06
SlartKartagis: it seems rm '~' works too.. at least on my computer09:06
SlartKartagis: don't press tab09:06

KeranuI'm having some serious boot problems with Ubuntu09:09
moymoyKartagis: ~ always points to your home directory... you have to escape it with the backslash!09:09
KeranuI think the problem lies with my BIOS and the way it's detecting my hard drives09:09
SlartKartagis: if you're worried about loosing files do a mv instead of rm ... that way you'll still have the files, even if something goes bad09:10
KeranuSo here's the problem:09:10

KeranuI've tried installing Ubuntu with Windows XP many times and I end up either being able to boot up straight to XP with no sight of Ubuntu or I'll be able to boot up GRUB but when I click on XP, it gives me error 21 (selected disk does not exist, I think)09:11
rootlinuxusrinstall xp first then reinstall ubuntu?09:12
rootlinuxusr @moymoy http://rootlinuxusr.com/images/Screenshot.png09:13
moymoyKeranu: is that possible? if you can boot into GRUB, then GRUB should have already written over the MBR, but it seems like you have two loaders loaded in the MBR?09:13
KeranuI tried installing Grub from the Ubuntu installer on every possible path when I made partitions for Windows XP and Ubuntu on the same hard drive09:13
KeranuNow I am trying to install Ubuntu on my second hard drive instead09:13
KeranuWhen I tried this, I installed Grub to (hd1), but now when I try to boot my system, it says Grub Hard Disk Error09:13
CraigGBhi, if i downloaded the kernel source for a ubuntu kernel would it already be mostly preconfigured without copying a .config file across??09:13
rootlinuxusrSettings as they stand. maybe there's a different name for gnome-panel?09:13
[R]Keranu: you shoudl install grub to your first rrive09:14
[R]drive*09:14
CQKeranu look in /boot/grub/menu.lst and see if everything there is correct for XP. Google that, and you'll find a lot of help09:14
Pluxiihello, i seem to have a problem after installing, i created a 50gb partition for this to install to, and i let it select where it was installing, long story short somehow it missed it's mark and i only have 96mb of free space, how do i uninstall and try again?09:14
rootlinuxusrJust run through the install again?09:15
Pluxiiwill that uninstall this installation?09:15
kdubPluxii: it will. you can also use gparted to resize partitions09:16
Kartagisfortunately I removed it, and none of my crucial files were removed09:16
rootlinuxusrIf you set it to delete the partition.09:16
kdubPluxii: run gparted from a live cd though, if you need to change the size of the root partition09:16
KeranuAt this point I am running the live CD and reformatted the second hard drive that I installed Ubuntu on but I'm still getting the Grub Hard Disk Error09:16
KeranuLuckily I can still access my Windows files, so I'll have those backed up before I try anything else09:16
Pluxiihmm'09:16
moymoyrootlinuxusr: hmm .. try changing 'Gnome-panel' to 'class=Gnome-panel'09:16
yaboocan anyone recommend me what is good webcam software to take images on ubuntu09:16
Pluxiiso pop in the live CD while the os is up?09:17
CQKeranu: playing with grub shouldn't kill anything09:17
[R]yaboo: cheese... i'm pretty sure its installed by default...09:17
Pluxiito run the gparted?09:17
rootlinuxusr=] that's better. Now just to perfect it09:17
moymoyPluxii: there's no such thing as uninstalling an OS .. all you have to do is delete the partition and start over =]09:17
Pluxiii see i see =) thanks much09:18
KeranuIt's causing me problems right now, nonetheless. So I'm gonna do fixmbr on my Windows CD after I back up my files.09:18
SyphonSilenthey guys09:18
SyphonSilenthow do I use my mic on linux?09:18

CraigGBhi, if i downloaded the kernel source for a ubuntu kernel would it already be mostly preconfigured without copying a .config file across when compiling?09:20
KeranuWhen installing Grub from the Ubuntu installer, should I only install it on the hard drive (hd0 or whatever hd used), or should I install it in a specific directory like the ones that say sda/windows?09:21

moymoyMachtin: how did you install it? tell me the method09:25

callum_Hi everyone - just wondering im trying to install  Ubuntu 7.10 I think PPC Version to my IMAC G4 and when i load disk it says a bunch of junk and press enter or type live video=off only09:25
CraigGBactually, would a a debian config work?09:26
callum_I press enter and it sits on a black screen, but first goes to a white screen and loads some graphic thing.09:26
moymoyMachtin: the installation was probably handled by the package management system... so using the system's package manager should remove it... just remove it in synaptic09:26
kdubCraigGB: if you arent developing, or getting some bleeding edge hardware to work, i'd stick with the distro's kernel09:26
Machtinuh.. hm.09:26
em056why my compiz fusion is not working09:26
em056?09:26
moymoyem056: be specific. did it STOP working? or has it never worked before?09:27
em056never worked before... i already check some effects but nothing happens09:27
CraigGBkdub: the distros kernel doesn't work basically, wheras i been using the ubuntu one for some time and it works perfectly :)09:27
moymoyem056: what video card do you have?09:27
em056nvidia riva tnt209:28
moymoyem056: is that card capable of 3D? there might be a driver for you.. lemme send you the driver page09:28
Machtinmoymoy: i removed and reinstalled it via aptitude.. and the new version does exist, but is not used.. the old version is used instead09:28
Machtinand there is no old version to remove in my package manager.09:29
moymoyem056: nvidia.com/object/unix.html see if your card is supported by one of these drivers09:29
rob__Just let you all know that i found two fixes for Nvida Gforce 6 6200 series cards and Glx09:29
rob__on ubuntu 9.0409:29
kdubrob__: probably better to describe them in a bug report, or at least put them on ubuntu-forums09:30
moymoyMachtin: do you still have the source? have you tried 'make uninstasll'?09:30
Machtini dont :/09:30

moymoyMachtin: maybe you can download the source again, but this time do a 'checkinstall' so the package manager handles it... and it should overwrite all of the files during installation, then you can use the package manager to uninstall it again09:38

moymoyjustfil: oh .. is it a script you wrote? ... binaries/scripts that are put into your PATH are executed when you type their name .. to find out what your PATHs are type in $PATH in the terminal, it should give you a couple of directories, separated by ":"10:04

Aldushi. I have a folder ("myfolder") with php files. I created a ftp user (with useradd -d myfolder -G ftp myuser). If I set 755 permissions on myfolder/subfolder, seems like myuser can't change the "subfolder" directory name because of no permissions. If I set 777 I enable writing also for php that I don't want.

doublemI have a screen resolution problem. I'm using an Envision monitor. the nvidia drivers are installed, and I can set the resolution to 1024x768 without any problem. However, when I reboot, the screen resolution goes back to 640x480. The resolution is correct on the login screen, but after I enter my username and password, I'm back to 640x480. I can run nvidia and reset it to 1234x768 ok, but again, after boot, it's back to 640x480.10:28
Slartdoublem: can you pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?10:28
moymoydoublem: looks like the settings aren't writing to your Xorg.conf ... `sudo su nvidia-settings` (just using sudo won't work, you need to use su)10:29
doublemSlart: Not at the moment. I'm on my laptop which works fine. The problem is with my wife's computer.10:30

Slartdoublem: hmm, I've never of heard anyone else with the same problem so I don't really know what is wrong..sorry10:31
Slart_Apple_: you can add MODE lines to your xorg.conf..10:32
doublemSlart: Thanks for the help. googling was not enlightening.10:32
Slart_Apple_: or rather.. not modelines.. but resolution lines..10:32
_Apple_yeah I got lucky and remembered I had this problem back in 7.10 and had the page book marked lol10:33

justfilI tried fstab but the line that worked in Ubuntu doesnt seem to work in Debian10:35

moymoyrootlinuxusr_: either mount them at /mnt or make directories in /mnt10:45

rootlinuxusr_Why does /mnt make the difference - It's an easy solution, just curious...10:46
UnhackmeeHey, how can i "install" KDE desktop in my ubuntu (gnome) if i have the Kubuntu CD?10:46
Slartrootlinuxusr_: because gnome only checks for mounted drives in /media .. I think it's hardcoded somewhere10:46
rootlinuxusr_But what if it's a networked drive - how do i mount drives in /mnt then?10:47
Slartrootlinuxusr_: not sure what the rationale behind it is though.. someone thought it was a good idea?10:47
rootlinuxusr_Eh, it's really not much of an issue, actually a few less keystrokes...was just curious. =]10:48
moymoyrootlinuxusr_:  you can still mount network drives in /mnt10:48
mejobloggssorry for asking an apache question, but I can't find anyone to help :(  Does anyone know where/what file i create a virtual dir/alias in?10:48
moymoyrootlinuxusr_: what kind of network drive is it? ... i'm going to make sure you get helped!10:48
Slartrootlinuxusr_: you can mount network drives whereever you want.. just put them in your fstab.. it's only the point'n'click way that puts them in /media10:48
rootlinuxusr_so i could edit /etc/fstab or is there a way to mount it via terminal smbmount?10:49
rootlinuxusr_external maxtor on an ubuntu server.10:49
moymoyrootlinuxusr_: you can mount via terminal... use /hostname/sharedfolder i believe10:49
[mu]keiserrbtw, with apt-get can i remove all dependancies related to a package when i remove an application installed from apt ???10:50
inpxfxis there a doctor linux in here10:50
moymoyrootlinuxusr_: your server's running ubuntu? Then why not use NFS instead of Samba?10:50
rootlinuxusr_Okay, well then how would I mount it via NFS?10:50
rootlinuxusr_I've only used samba.10:50
rootlinuxusr_same way I'd suppose.10:50
moymoyrootlinuxusr_: samba is horrible for nautilus.. (more like nautilus just acts up with samba)10:51
moymoyrootlinuxusr_: basically, you need to edit the /etc/exports file on your server and export the paths you want to share over the network10:51

rootlinuxusr_that's what I was just about to check xD10:52

laegwhy do i have pidgin's regular 'system tray' icon and then an enbelope with a drop down menu containing pidgin?10:53
SlartDekko: apt-cache policy compiz-fusion    or whatever the package is called  to see the version10:53

nyaaDekko: what feature or thing are you looking for as far as upgrades for compiz?10:53
[mu]keiserrthanks slart10:53
DekkoThing is I can not get RealVNC server to update the screen if I use Compiz. If I switch it off then it works.10:54
rootlinuxusr_I've never got vnc to work on a server that had compiz running.10:54
SlartDekko: that sounds more like a realvnc problem than a compiz problem.. have you tried any other vnc servers?10:54
UnhackmeeHey, how can i "install" KDE desktop in my ubuntu (gnome) if i have the Kubuntu CD?10:55
moymoyDekko: age old compiz bug... VNC works by detecting breakage in the screen so that it doesn't send images that are redundant to save bandwidth, but compiz doesn't play nice with it10:55
DekkoSlart: Which ones are available?10:55
moymoyUnhackmee: go to your software sources and select your CD as a repository, and install kubuntu-desktop10:56
DekkoMoymoy: Is there a way to force it to update? Its a pain having to switch off the eyecandy just to remote the machine (as I am doing right now) :D10:56

mralexandro:p10:57
moymoyDekko: nope, there isn't a way to do it i'm afraid... the only work around is to use another vnc client or disable breakage10:57
moymoyDekko: but i don't really use VNC .. i prefer to use ssh with X forwarding10:57
nyaaDekko you could try fiddling in the general options, maybe something like force indepentend output painting?  I know there are others10:57
Dekkomoymoy: I run RealVNC on Windows, OSX and now Linux box, so would like same system on all machines. :)10:58
DekkoHow can I disable breakage?10:58
nyaaDekko also maybe sync to vblank?10:58
SlartDekko: well.. there are realvnc, tightvnc, the old vnc and probably lots more10:58
