k5ehxhello, KB1JWQ00:00
KB1JWQmcphail: Some systems will kill any backgrounded task opened within a specific terminal when that terminal dies.00:00
khazilOkay: there's certainly no reason not to use proprietary drivers, but charging for something that's included in Windows drivers is a little... questionable00:00
KB1JWQk5ehx: Helo.00:00
syslq78fwaokda,  nohup tells app to ignore sighup signal00:00
rpx__anyone that is good with alsa?00:00
fwaokdamcphail, didn't work :(00:00
Apollo2366mcphail, is there a guide to using ardour?00:00
k5ehxanybody have pointers on troubleshooting Xorg startups? I seem to have the right module loaded in the kernel, but I don't really know how to deal with modules / drivers in xorg00:01
Okaykhazil, yeah, I read about some alternatives, but they seem to all have downsides to them00:01
KB1JWQfwaokda: As I said, run it inside of a screen session.  You can reattach later with screen -x00:01
skellingtonmcphail: im on an asus eeepc 1000ha with an hdd, not an ssd. i was really just wondering what applications i could remove to speed up my boot even more. (it's faster than winxp as it is)00:01
mcphailApollo2366: yes - tutorial on the web page. It is a complex and powerful piece of kit00:01
KB1JWQk5ehx: The X log is your friend.00:01
mazda01anyone else use phpmyadmin in jaunty and got it working?00:01
fwaokdasyslq78, doing 'nohup command' seemed to work thanks00:01
khazilOkay: it's probably impossible to work around kernel software00:01
mcphailskellington: for a start, edit /boot/grub/menu.lst to remove the countdown from the grub menu00:02
syslq78fwaokda, you can also suspend it with ctrl+z, than put it to background with bg and use disown -h job_id to detach it from parent process, if it's already running00:02
k5ehxKB1JWQ: yeah, it's not being very friendly though. Just says "saw signal 11" and has "intel_drv" in the traceback.00:02
syslq78fwaokda, np00:02

ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about lib00:02
Socahlaclasse, should esd-common be related to almost whole gnome?00:02
ekaswapon problem??00:02
ubottuPlease investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".00:02
laclasseSocah, esd = Enlightment Sound Daemon00:03
mcphailskellington: the eeebuntu forums have a few tips on speeding up boot. Will probably apply to ubuntu as well00:03
taviHey all: I'm having an issue with dual displays in ubuntu. When I try to drag a window to my 2nd screen, it stops at the edge and doesn't let me fully utilize it. Any suggestions?00:03
jdudeskiI'm trying to fix the intel video bug and I've got the instructions, but I just can't get to anywhere to fix it... GDM freezes, none of the grub boot options which are useful are getting me to any shell I can carry out the commands... Anyone know of any way to get around the freeze on boot? The guide I'm trying to follow is here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=113058200:03
k5ehxjdudeski: I think that's what is happening to me, maybe00:03
skellingtonmcphail: ill have a gander, may have a fix for my wpa problem as well. one more question, is xfce faster than gnome?00:03
jdudeskik5ehx: likely, you have intel onboard?00:03
RamonsterI get this error when I try ./configure... checking for ssl... configure: error: Cannot find ssl libraries, what ssl libs do I need... got OpenSSL..? :)00:03
k5ehxjdudeski: it's a notebook, 945GM or some such00:04
jdudeskiXFCE is faster than gnome, yes skellington00:04
aleksiomore than 1000 users online and nobody knows nothing about ffmpeg?00:04
laclasseSocah, esd is dated ...it uses OSS ... so esd works with also only across the oss compat module: asoundconf set-oss PARAMETER00:04
Okaykhazil, guess I should have installed a windows partition huh?00:04
jdudeskiyeah k5ehx, you're bitten by the bug00:04
mcphailskellington: not really. You can strip gnome down and it will run almost as fast00:04
k5ehxaleksio: use avidemux00:04
EvelinaThank you all! I got my cron job and rtcwake working as it should. At least it seem to work! Thanks for all help.00:04
cuddlefishTavi: you have tried all the screen edges?00:04

laclasseSocah, but not sure if e17 doe not use it00:04
skellingtonalright guys, thanks00:04
khazilOkay: Or just pay for software that works00:04
KB1JWQRamonster: What're you trying to install?00:04
jdudeskik5ehx: freeze up on boot? can't get to anywhere to fix it?00:04
khazilOkay: alternatively, you can buy hardware that works00:04
tavicuddlefish: Yeah, it's the correct edge becuaes it's dragging onto the second screen partially. But it's acting like it's not really dual display--it also isnt letting me right click on the Desktop of the 2nd display00:05
RamonsterKBIJWQ: Arcemu core; a WoW Private Server :P00:05
nsadminso also say texas, arizona and NM?00:05

RamonsterKBIJWQ: Their IRC Isnt realy helpfull tho00:05
Okayit's usb00:05

cuddlefishAnd there's only one mouse pointer? (Just trying to rule out all the noob questions)00:05
KB1JWQRamonster: And yeah, good luck with that. :)00:06
khazilOkay: then you can use Sun's proprietary (but free) xVM, run windows and pass through the printer driver00:06
hilltophelp please: what is Super in the hot keys?  Thanks00:06
RamonsterKB1JWQ: im sorry :P00:06
Picihilltop: Generally the 'windows' key00:06
Okaykhazil, okay. I'll go give that a try00:06
KB1JWQRamonster: Mistype someone's nick and they don't get flagged; they'll miss your post in a busy channel like this. Type the first couple letters than hit tab, it'll autocomplete.00:06
Okaykhazil, is it guaranteed to work though?00:06
FloridaGuydoes ubuntu have a gui to configure the display....like in mandriva...and in fedora there is yum install config-display00:07
hilltopOh, great. My old thinkpad has no window key.  Thanks pici00:07
RamonsterKB1JWQ, ah.. thanks.. Knew it was something with tab but just couldnt figure it out :P00:07
Apollo2366mcphail, Ok, I've been looking for it, but I don't see it anywhere00:07
khazilOkay: It's non-trivial though, not guaranteed, and not convenient00:07
stroyanRamonster: You may want "sudo apt-get install libssl-dev".00:07
aleksiok5ehx: avidemux can work with mkv files?00:07
khazilOkay: I take it this printer is too new to send to the junk heap, but too old to return00:07
Ramonsterstroyan, libssl-dev is already the newest version.00:08
k5ehxaleksio: I believe it uses ffmpeg00:08
Okaykhazil, you got that right00:08
mcphailApollo2366: http://ardour.org/files/manual/index.html00:08

nsadminno sound gives good karma?00:09
laclasseFloridaGuy, no need to install here. Just go to System -> Preferences -> Display00:09

nsadminthe http is the protocol... the www.alsa-project.org is the machine...00:11
bastidrazorRamonster, libssl0.9.8 if you're on an updated jaunty00:11
Okaykhazil, no. that's not a possibility00:11
laclasseFloridaGuy, what gfx card/monitor dos you have, what can it do and what does default ubuntu does?00:11
Ramonsterbastidrazor: libssl0.9.8 is already the newest version.00:12
rpx__nsadmin: hehe, true.. so they recommended on the help pages for sound debuging to run a script to produce this page... unfort. I am not able to find the problem00:12
hilltopThere seem to be two virtual desktops show at foot of screen How do I set up more, like 4?  Thanks00:12
erikk71how i fix the time it keeps showing it in military time00:12
Okaykhazil, maybe i'll just use turboprint's trial for 30 days and then uninstall then reinstall00:12
nsadminrpx__: oh, it's the output of the script... show that url on #alsa00:12
Mike_lifeguardWhenever I unplug my laptop, it suspends. How can I change that behaviour?00:12

laclasseRamonster, if you are trying to build something install the dev packages00:13
Shazburghilltop: Right click on it and go to Preferences.00:13
rpx__nsadmin: I tried but no one there :(00:13
nsadminRamonster that's what package dependencies are for00:13
laclasseRamonster, you need "libssl-dev" it seems00:13

LurkersAHey all. Just put a new install of Jaunty on a Laptop to replace the intrepid instance. Put it into standby before, and now it no longer realizes it has a built in keyboard or trackpad. Logging in with an external keyboard resulted in a comment by X.org saying it had reset to default instance. Google has a few examples of this on ubuntu forums but no solutions. ideas?00:14
laclasseFloridaGuy, prop nvidia drivers installed?00:14
Lenaud01anyone here use synce?00:14
khazilOkay: yeah, you might as well just do that, but it definitely won't be that easy to clean up00:14
Ramonsterlaclasse, libssl-dev is already the newest version.00:14
cuddlefishhilltop: right click on them, Preferences.00:14
stroyanRamonster: This page lists dependencies- http://www.arcemu.info/wiki/index.php?title=Compiling:_Linux   But libssl-dev should be resolving the current configure error.00:14
khazilOkay: OSS4 used to let you do that (before it was open sourced)00:14
Lenaud01FloridaGuy, you get evolution working00:15
laclasseRamonster, tell WoW their configure script sucks ;-)00:15
cuddlefish<censored> Don't you hate it when you forget to SCROLL DOWN?00:15
Ramonsterstroyan: I already got libssl-dev, updated and all00:15
Shazburgcuddlefish: Happens to the best of us, mate.00:15
Apollo2366mcphail, I'm having the exact same problem as I was with audacity. I'm attempting to simply combine two .wav files with a little bit of silence in between them. I do this and it plays wonderfully in the editor, but when I export, the file will not play in any application.00:15
erikk71how do i fix the time in ubuntu00:15
FloridaGuyLenaud01, never used evolution00:15
cuddlefishErikk, what desktop enviroment are you using?00:16
nsadminwhat time is it in ubuntu?00:16
Lenaud01what you use synce for00:16
Ramonsterlaclasse, will do :P00:16
stroyanRamonster: You will need to delve into exactly what the configure script is looking for.  It isn't explaining its needs very well.00:16
erikk71its in military time format00:16
laclasseFloridaGuy, please report a bug if you can. You can i guess force the coonfig in Xorg (/etc/X11/xorg.conf), google for xorg.conf and you will find examples. But its interesting that it is not detected00:16
Ramonsterstroyan, got all those files00:16
cuddlefisherikk71: go to #xubuntu00:16
bastidrazorerikk71, try #xubuntu00:16
laclasseFloridaGuy, is the Tv recent? maybe the EID db is not up to date00:17
FloridaGuylaclasse, thats why i was woundering if ubuntu had a gui for configure it00:17
Ramonsterstroyan: this is the ./configure: ./configure prefix=/home/arcemu/server --enable-lua-scripting --enable-collision --enable-debug00:18
khazilOkay: next time check out openprinting's database, "paperweights" are clearly labeled00:18
FloridaGuylaclasse, every other distro it works great in00:18
bastidrazorFloridaGuy, you said a nVidia card right? gksudo nvidia-settings will give you a gui00:18
FloridaGuyits about 2 yrs old00:18
laclasseFloridaGuy, not to manually assign resolution no, and the more we go, the more things will get auto detected, as devices become a bit more clever.00:18
syslq78Anyone having weird VLC behaviour while resizing version 1.0.0?00:18

Reidanyone have any experience with madwifi drivers and atheros?00:19
laclasseEvelina, yes00:20
EvelinaI mean when I start up Ubuntu Server I get to the login prompt. Will a scheduled corn job be run as root even if I am not logged into any account?00:20
nsadminEvelina And so will a non-root cron job00:20
laclasseThats what Cron does, and there is even anacron to run missed cron jobs while your computer is off.00:20
mcphailEvelina: yes00:20
Ramonsterstroyan, you want me to copy the full output?00:20
EvelinaOk, so it ok to stay at the login prompt?00:20
mcphailEvelina: yes00:21
Socahlaclasse, my solution: I went to package manager... showed all installed packages, and made "reinstall" for all. In fact, it hanged on bash and stopped, but after reboot, and editing again modprobe.d/alsa-sound.conf with proper options for my card, everything is back to normal00:21
EvelinaOk, I have got an answer.00:21
nsadmindepends on what you mean by "ok"00:21
Socahlaclasse, pretty stupid and simple, but worked00:21
laclasseSocah, err00:21
stroyanYou could pastebin the last few lines.  Or read it yourself.00:21
StrangeCharm__how can i see what services are running on what sockets on my machine?00:21
laclasseSocah, glad you have sound00:21
Socahlaclasse, thank you for your help and time00:21
hilltopcuddlefish, OK got it.  Thanks00:21
khazilStrangeCharm__: "netstat"00:22
EvelinaThank you answering my question. Nice to hear I don't have to login.00:22
StrangeCharm__cheers khazil00:22
syslq78Evelina, yeah, you dont have to be loged in in order for coronjobs to be executed00:22
nsadminEvelina: is it critical this cron job runs?00:22
khazilStrangeCharm__: actually, netstat -l for listeners (servers)00:22
Evelinasyslq78: Yeah, hehe, I got it. ;)00:22
StrangeCharm__khazil-  i was going to say, that's giving me streams, thanks again00:23
laclasseSocah, np00:23
Evelinansadmin: Nah, I won't say it's critical but I want it to be run so it will be bad if it won't. Not critical but well at least not good, why?00:23
nsadminoh, so that's what you mean by "OK"00:24
syslq78Evelina, that's true for all systems really including ms windows00:25
r3l1cI can run "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" in one command. Is there a way to skip the sudo apt-get the second time and use "&& upgrade"? I can write a scripr but is there anything built in?00:25
justfilI can't play sound simultaneously in firefox and Decibel audio player.00:26
Ramonsterstroyan, did you get my PM?00:26
StrangeCharm__khazil-  any way of saying which processes are listening to those sockets?00:26
Evelinasyslq78: Ok, well I just wanted to be sure.00:26
khazilr3l1c: that's not how && works00:26
stroyanRamonster: yes00:26
nsadminwell let's put it this way... I think you can run a periodic script in windows... the mechanism is not called cron and doesn't work like it00:26
r3l1cso what are the possibilites. When I run the first command khazil it does work00:27
khazilStrangeCharm__: usually you can tell, but let me check00:27
ActionParsnipyo yo yo00:28
nsadminwhether it's good or bad it works different is a subjective value judgement00:28
khazilStrangeCharm__: netstat -lp00:28

StrangeCharm__thansk khazil00:28
EvelinaI won't hurt removing the graphics card and the display from the server? I am going to use ssh to remote control the server.00:29
syslq78ActionParsnip, nah, but I'm doing something else while typing00:29
ActionParsnipsyslq78: gotcha00:29
EvelinaThe fan at the graphics card is not working so I'm planning to remove the card to avoid getting some overheating.00:29
khazilEvelina: there is no onboard graphics?00:29
nsadminEvelina: give it a shot... I would imagine the system would get confused (but I don't think permanent damage would happen)00:30
nsadminreplace it with a cheap console-only card00:30
khazilare there systems which refuse to post without graphics card?00:30
Evelinakhazil: I donät know actually. I don't want to use a display anyway, it's good enough using reote control. But will it give me any problem booting Ubntu without any display and graphics card, any error message etc?00:31
owen1how to find my harddrive rpm from terminal?00:31
syslq78Evelina, just replace the fan :)00:31

syslq78owen1, hdparm00:31
Ramonsterstroyan, got anything yet?00:31
owen1syslq78: thanks00:31
nsadminEvelina: probably you want to arrange a serial console before you try that00:31
Evelinasyslq78: Yeah, but I'm goint to remote control the server using ssh so I didn't bother. But if the system may be confused then I may reconsider my decision.00:31
stroyanRamonster: The configure script may be caching bad results from earlier.  You could restart from autoreconf, or start over in a new directory.00:32
Evelinansadmin: Serial console? What's that?00:32
syslq78Evelina, well I dont think it will be confused00:32
Ramonsterstroyan, restarted about 5 times now :P00:32

stroyanRamonster: It is time for me to go eat.00:33
khazilSerial console will allow you to access it if something happens which prevents you from ssh'ing in00:33
nsadminEvelina: there used to be no video cards... computers had large banks of serial ports and that's how they talked00:33
Ramonsterstroyan, bon a petit ;)00:33
syslq78Evelina, nothing should happen if you remove you grapichs card and boot system00:33
Ramonsterstroyan, thanks for your time00:33
syslq78Well except you wont be eable to plug in monitor00:33

gogetawoodworker: extra space = storage00:36
woodworkergogeta: 2.0 gb or more?00:37

arandwoodworker: the key, if you view it, normally changes to a different encoding (HEX, instead of plain-text ASCii, why I do not know...) , the keyring is a password to ensure that only certain users on the machine can access the wireless, if you do not need that safety precation, it can be left empty (sorry, delayed answer, had to type a lot...)02:01

woodworkersoreau the device is a bcm430602:59
rootlinuxusr_Why would I get "unable to connect a socket (Connection refused)" when trying to git the kernel?02:59
Interphasemoymoy, does it work for you?02:59
woodworkersoreau thanks02:59
rootlinuxusr_also, dude.02:59
owen1is there something like stickiness for an app? i open pidgin and it appears in all my tags (awesome window manager)02:59
soreauwoodworker: lsmod alone would show you all of the loaded modules. The '| grep bcm' means it's piping the output through grep and only showing you modules with the letters 'bcm' in it02:59
woodworkersoreau can you narrow that down there are hundreds of things03:00
nztal-has anyone successfully defined a network device in /etc/network/interfaces, removed network-manager-gnome, and continued using dnsmasq for local dns cache ?  when i do that myself, i can connected to my router, but i do not retain any internet connectivity.  anyone have any ideas ?03:00
woodworkersoreau: ok hundreds is an exageration but there are alot03:01
arandsoreau: bcm203x would be my guess, as to what provides wlan0, no clue... kernel usually means I'm way to deep in, above my head...03:02
soreauwoodworker: Since there is no output, that is suspicious since you in fact have a wlan0 interface. Try loading one of the broadcom drivers with 'sudo modprobe bcm3510'03:02
soreauarand: Since he says it's a bcm4306 I'm gonna go with bcm3510 for now ;)03:02
soreauMaybe I should google what it's supposed to be :p03:03
Mouse<man_in_shack> Mouse, cdemu may help you....anybody hear of this?03:03
woodworkersoureau it just gave me another pompt03:03
soreauwoodworker: No output usually means success. Now try again with 'lsmod|Grep bcm' and check 'iwconfig' for any changes03:04
motohI'm having an annoyance with Ubuntu mounting my PSP as a read only filesystem.03:04
soreauwoodworker: The G in grep is supposed to be lower case03:04
woodworkersoreau ok it shows what we just loaded03:04
KB1JWQmotoh: So remount it rw.03:04
motohKB1JWQ: how do I do that and how do I make sure it does it automatically in the future?03:05
rootlinuxusr_modify /etc/fstab.03:05
nztal-jwfoxjr, yes /etc/network/interfaces is where you'd define a connection without network-manager-gnome or say, wicd03:06
soreauwoodworker: Basically, I think ubuntu loaded the wrong driver for your hardware03:06
motohDidn't work.03:06
woodworkersoreau:  ok let me try to connect03:06
woodworkersoreau:  it still shows the same thing when I try to connect to hidden network - and it is set to connect automatically03:07
wfiuewfewHi! My machine just crashed of overheating --- running Ubuntu. Its cpu was at 50C before the crash. Any ideas why and what is the max acceptable temp?03:07
moymoyInterphase: yup.. it's working for me.. are you on 64 bit?03:07
Interphasemoymoy, no03:08
InterphaseI am downloading boxee03:08
Interphasehopefully that will d it03:08
FloodBot3Interphase: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.03:08
woodworkersoureau:  should I have installed bcm 4306 instead of bcm 351003:08
soreauwoodworker: Well go ahead and unload the driver module with 'sudo rmmod bcm3510' so at least you know how to do this03:08
Interphaselol, I guess I type too quickly03:08
matt444what is the command to see what partitions I have?03:08
woodworkersoureau - ok gone03:09
soreauwoodworker: Well here on my jaunty machine there is only bcm203x, bcm3510 and bcm597403:09
soreauwoodworker: So you probably need to figure out which module it's incorrectly loaded, rmmod it and then probe the correct driver03:09
shane2peruRichardYu, hey are you the same fellow that helped me this AM with the gnome-power-manager-inhibt03:10
woodworkersoureau:  would that be the bcm4306 or would that be another one03:10
RichardYushane2peru, sorry I am not the person03:10
Out_Coldcan someone direct me to steps to install while booted in another host? I want to install a new ubuntu distro on live cd into lvms03:11
shane2peruRichardYu, ok, sorry to bug you then. :)03:11
soreauwoodworker: That I cannot tell you directly. I'd have to do some research on google to find out which is the correct driver for your hw03:11
wfiuewfewany ideas about cpu temp?03:11
woodworkersoureau:  bcm4306 is non existant03:11
Shadow__Xjrib, any ideas and sorry to keep bothering you it just seems like not alot of people know what i should do03:11
soreauwoodworker: Here on my jaunty machine there is only bcm203x, bcm3510 and bcm597403:11
Interphaseok, update on the flash thing for me03:12

jwfoxjrnztal - thanks - so tired of having NM flip-flop when I change interfaces on my laptop03:12

Interphaseall flash object in my firefox always start as a big gray box with a gray play sign03:12
Interphaseand I have to click it to activate them03:12
philwhen I try to use www.picnik.com the flash player doesn't work, is there a know fix for this issue yet?03:12
Interphaseperhaps this is the problem?03:12
motohNo luck, still read only even for root.03:13
soreauwoodworker: But more importantly, you have to figure out which driver is providing the wlan0 interface you currently have because it is the wrong one (whatever it is)03:13
oldude67Interphase, do you have the gnash loaded as well?03:13
woodworkersoureau:  ok any ideas03:13
shane2peruif I can't ssh into my box, and it is froze up, although it is working, then I'm pretty much locked out?03:14
jigphello guys what is the best? DELL or Toshiba (with builtin camera) for ubuntu?thanks03:14
soreauwoodworker: And with that, I will also tell you that you can press the up button in your terminal to get to previously entered commands03:14
nztal-jwfoxjr, i recommend wicd for laptops.  if your accessing different AP's its easier on dns changes, at least at starbucks, it doesn't interfere with the different setups like network-manager-gnome does.  if you lose connectivity defining your /etc/network/interfaces file, you might want to make sure you have a wicd deb handy, just to get you back online03:14
Interphaseoldude67, no, what is gnash?03:14
soreauwoodworker: But unfortunately I am out of further ideas03:14
Mousecdemu....anybody know of this?03:14

soreaushane2peru: What makes you think it's working? Didn't you just say it's frozen?03:15
oldude67Interphase, dont worry about it if its not loaded dont loaded it has its own issues with the adobe flash03:15

shane2perusoreau, however it doesn't respond to the keyboard, or mouse03:15

shane2perusoreau, I would really like to finish the backup process though03:16

Jonathan__hi all03:16
Interphasebecause ff wont' load flash videos on bbc.co.uk or boxee.com03:16
nztal-jwfoxjr, i believe under ordinary circumstances and some good examples its not too difficult to lose connectivty, at least on all interfaces, but i've had some trouble using a local dns cache which wont allow me to access the internet, but will allow me to access the lan, but it helps to have something as backup, in case of the unforseeable03:16
PeddyMouse, what game is it? there's a WINE app database, and it lists compatiblity with certain games.03:16

Mouseif I knew I could fix it shane2peru sadly i am not sure03:19
Mousewine should be readin git03:19
Mouseit see's the disk03:19
shane2peruMouse, I mean wine doesn't see the disk?03:19
MouseI think it might be the game03:20
Mousewine see's it03:20
Interphaseok, does anyone else get this big gray box with a play symbol in the middle instead of flash objects?03:20
Mousethey said it might be a copyrigth protection issue03:20

ctmjrbobo, does it have the linux instsller on the disk if not you need to download it03:38
bobohow and where? ive tried googling it03:39
woodworkersoreau:  Well supposedly this will work according to another user I talked to today - noone told me anything else I had to do to make this persistant03:39
bobonah, they didnt do that this time03:39
moymoysoreau: woodworker, Ubuntu comes with a tool specifically made to turn use LiveCDs to make the USB bootable, and it offers a "persistent" mode that saves any settings and installed apps... sadly though, if you change system settings like user password, it won't work03:39
woodworkersoreau:  I got all the upgrades03:39

alpha[]hello, i am wanting to install xubuntu on a machine that only has SCSI discs. How would I go about installing the OS (since I can't see the HDD's)?03:43
oldude67Interphase, i know i fought this for aout 3 days before i finally got it to work..i think i uninstalled all of it threw synaptic and reloaded it.03:43
soreauwoodworker: That's kinda old but according to that you need to use bcm43XX-fwcutter with the BCM43xx driver (you have a bcm4306 rev 03)03:44
behnamhi, my sound is broken, doesn't work.  what is the basic troubleshooting?03:44
InterphaseI uninstalled swfdec03:44
PhrogzUbuntu server with 2GB physical RAM, and (atm) 1.5GB swap. Right now it's only using 512MB real RAM (1.5GB free) and, of course, 0 swap. Is there any reason, really, that I should bump my swap up to 2GB?03:44
PhrogzNo, I will not be hibernating.03:45
woodworkersoreau:  I just ran 'sudo apt-get install bcm4306-fwcutter' - it came up and said reading package lists error03:45
motohOk, I can't change owner on the PSP now.03:45
Interphaseoldude67, that did it03:45
oldude67Phrogz,depends on how muchyou want to do at one time03:45
InterphaseI had to uninstall swfdec, which didn't work03:46
oldude67Interphase, great glad it worked03:46
soreauwoodworker: Is that exactly what it said?03:46
m0r0nUbuntu is saying that my Flash drive is a Read-Only how can I fix that03:46
alpha[]m0r0n, what filesystem03:46
iamslangolstarnes, thanks for the response. I tried reinstalling that package. it put everything back except the envvars file03:46
soreaum0r0n: mount it rw03:46
woodworkersoreau:   E: write error - write (28 no space left on device_ E: IO error saving source cache  - E: the package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened03:46

lordlimecatSo I have ubuntu 8.04 installed in a dual boot, and I want to A) remove it, B) install ubuntu on a secondary hard drive, and C) still have windows XP bootable off of the first drive.  What is the best way to accomplish this, assuming I do not have an XP install disk?03:46
Phrogzoldude67 - I'm just about there now. This server has all the processes running that it will have.03:46
soreauwoodworker: Looks like your out of disc space03:46
Interphaseoldude67, I don't remember installing it, I think it came standard03:47
m0r0nalpha[]:  What? Still new to this soreau: Mount it how? After I plug it in I do what?03:47
lordlimecatI assume that if i wipe out ubuntu + boot partition off of the XP drive, grub will stop working03:47
oldude67Phrogz, well then let it run03:47
alpha[]m0r0n, is it FAT32 or NTFS03:47
oldude67Interphase, probably03:47
soreaum0r0n: He asked what filesystem like ntfs, ext3, fat32 etc03:47
Phrogzoldude67: sound advice. Thanks :)03:47
m0r0nOh right. Um I believe I formatted it in NTFS03:47
woodworkersoreau is it possible to be out of 4.5 gb without intalling anything or did I make my other space to great?  I wonder if it didnt delete my .iso file when I created the usb boot drive03:48
alpha[]if ntfs sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /path/to/disk /localpath03:48
m0r0nalpha[]:  Scratch that, it says msdos03:48
Interphaseyay! hulu works03:48
boboctmjr: hey that is the correct one, but for whatever reason, the program doesnt want to see my disc03:48
Interphaseand this explains why epiphany didn't work either03:48
alpha[]uhm, that isn't a filesystem - i believe that's the mbr type03:48
fusionxtcdoes anyone know how to help me out? i would like not to reformate my hdd and lose everything03:48

hollim0r0n: it doesn't give you a link you copy and paste it out of the address bar of your browser04:16
phishiewoodworker: yes you gotta be root though, type sudo gparted instead04:16
woodworkerphishie: Yea is is sda204:16

Ali_nzlinuxuser600: sounds like you ran outta resources?04:17
UbuTheUbisee i run this command 'sudo rm -r Ivory\ Items ' .. the folder in the desktop actually shows up as 'Ivory Items' but in terminal the closest i could find was '04:17

UbuTheUbiwas' ivory items'04:18
lasehopesinyouuubuntu = massive easy04:18
UbuTheUbii mean 'Ivory\ items'04:18
hollijussi01: thanks, too bad the official documentation does not provide that04:18
phishiewoodworker: hmm another thing you can check is the amount of space used on it just to make sure04:18
shane2peruok, does anyone here have extremely slow sata issues, and does anyone know of a fix?04:18
UbuTheUbiwhy does it show up with the backslash04:18
linuxuser600Ali_nz: haha yeah, i was just saying thats the only time it happens04:18
Ali_nzthere must be a system log of what it was doing when it froze?04:18

woodworkerphishie:  I am going to fomat on my windows based machine first then put back in and see what happens04:19
navatwohow do I reload them?04:19
hollim0r0n: shouldn't need to, ask someone to tell you the command-line equivelent of what you are doing04:19
shane2perunavatwo, press alt F2 and type, killall gnome-panel04:19
hollim0r0n: people will be able to assist you better with terminal output than a screen shot04:19
oldude67navatwo, what were you doing when that happened?04:20
fusionxtcoldude67: still doing updates, whats the est time for this just wondering?04:20
shane2perunavatwo, it should reload itself04:20

oldude67fusionxtc, idk if you are on a dialup or a cable or what..so everything will very04:21
Drekiis anyone havving trouble connecting to keyserver.ubuntu.com?04:21
Ali_nzctmjr: ta04:21
m0r0nholli: No, just re-format that flash drive04:22
fusionxtcoldude67: would you suggest me restarting after update is complete?  and would i have o restart using the startx command everytime?04:22
hollim0r0n: what file format?04:22
fusionxtcoldude67: haha it might as well be dial up its wireless dsl04:22
=== brian_ is now known as Brians
oldude67fusionxtc, no it should boot normal and it will tell you if it should reboot but my guess is yes.04:22
woodworkerphishie:  That is interesting gparted is recognizing a second partition on my hard drive, but didnt recognice the usb device04:23
hollim0r0n: type sudo fdisk -l to find out the device name of the usb drive, it will look like: /dev/sdb104:23
lasehopesinyouuanybody know how to get screens on top and bottom in compiz04:23
m0r0nholli: I may have got something to work, one sec04:23
Briansanyone have a good way to have kde and gnome both installed without the apps merging04:23
phishiewoodworker: hmmm it could be that stick is goners...04:23
oldude67fusionxtc, when doing updates try to do them on a day or time that it wont get booted...or you will have lots of problems.04:23
hollim0r0n: then: sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sdb1    <----where /dev/sdb1 is your device name04:23
hollim0r0n: and your done04:23
fusionxtcoldude67: gotcha  thats for the info ^__^ im just hoping now everything will runn smooth, whats the difference with 9.04 anyway?04:23
fusionxtcoldude67: totaly noteded04:24
woodworkerphishie:  I just bought it...... and had an istall of ubuntu on it alrealy04:24
oldude67fusionxtc, lots of new hardware and stability with it...and i m hoping next upgrade is even better.04:24
fusionxtcoldude67: very good, is firefox still kina unreliable and same with flash?04:25
moymoyBrians: the apps will always merge.. what you can do is open up alacarte to edit your menus .. but otherwise, you can try installing on another partition or on a virtual machine04:25
phishiewoodworker: hmmm if gparted can't recognize it, then I cannot be of more help. And I am very unfamiliar with fdisk command.04:25
m0r0nholli: Contains a mounted file system04:25
phishiewoodworker: try plugging it out and back in and run gparted?04:25
hollim0r0n: sudo umount /dev/sdb104:26
hollim0r0n: again, replace /dev/sdb1 with whatever your usb drive is04:26
woodworkerphishie:  I am trying that - it is recognized in my places04:26
oldude67fusionxtc, ff is doing good...flash is set...just load it like it says and should be good...but im an opera fan so...04:26
m0r0nholli: Command not found04:26
hollim0r0n: you spelled it wrong, tab completion is your friend04:26
fusionxtcoldude67: i liked opera too, but its hard from me to convert when i was used to ff for soo long04:27
hollim0r0n: is umount NOT unmount04:27
m0r0nWoops, I put unmount04:27
m0r0nholli: mkfs.vfat: Device partition expected, not making filesystem on entire device '/d04:28
oldude67ok one and all im out have fun and good luck...happy hunting...and m$ sucks...have a nice day...:D04:28
Drekifusionxtc: oldude: i could never get used to another browser... firefox has it all..04:28
m0r0nev/sdg' (use -I to override)04:28

holliholli: you have to specify a partition04:29
DapsI have Samba installed, any ideas why I can't open the shared folders on my windows machine over the network??04:29

=== iamcalledrob|awa is now known as iamcalledrob
phishiewoodworker: i gotta say i have no knowledge of a persistent usb boot, was never successful anyway. You may need 2 partitions in that usb drive though. read up how to do the persistent boot first before you start formatting...04:41
woodworkerphishie:  seems to me the 9.04 has the usb creator built in and shold work as long as you create enough extra space04:42
phishiewoodworker: yeap but that would be non persistent if you runt that as itself, if that hasn't changed.04:42
phishiewoodworker: runt/run*04:43
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent04:43

ctmjrm0r0n, alot of vids downloaded from torrent sites are junk files never meant to play just waste your bandwidth and time04:44

NerosI cant get it working right in 9.0405:14
mazda01SnakDoc, i know. I have been trying to solve this for the last 6 hours. reinstalling packages etc etc.05:14
phishiewoodworker: ^^05:14
Joe_fusionxt: Do you use multiple graphics cards?05:14
nw-busser, the thing is that now, I need to reconfigure it just to work with a NAS HDD via a offline router. Do you think you can help me? if you have time, I will give more details on pastebin05:14
fusionxtcthe computer is a laptop so im affraid not05:14
ussernw-b, whats an offline router?05:15
moymoy[R]: it's mounted.. i can access the files and perform tasks.. but the directories are empty?05:15
moymoy[R]: the .gvfs directory i mean05:15
nsadmina router that's on standby? not active? not passing traffic?05:15
nw-busser, I have a wireless router, but I do not have an ethernet port with internet connection. I only receive internet via wireless05:15
mazda01SnakDoc, nevermind. i just needed to clear firefox's cache. it's working. sorry05:15
nw-busser, that is what I mean with an offline router05:16
fusionxtc Joe_ : the computer is a laptop so im affraid not05:16
ussernw-b, right and your pc is sharing the wireless connection to the rest of the devices right?05:16
Joe_fusionxt: hmm, can you get to a command prompt?05:16
SnakDocmazda01 lol i just had something i was going to get you to try :P05:16
nw-busser, yea05:16
[R]moymoy: and you're sure you are doing the ls as the correct user?05:16
SnakDocmazda01 glade to see its working05:16
ussernw-b, whats up with the NAS then, is it on the same wired network the rest of the devices are?05:16
fusionxtcJoe_ : when i boot the computer it goes to a DOS looking screen, i can input commands like if it were terminal05:17
nw-busser, yeah05:17
mazda01SnakDoc, yeah me too. i was racking my brain. now I am trying to clean up a music library that spans 2 drives but there's duplicates. i am using fslint. have you ever used it?05:17
ussernw-b, but you cant access it?05:17
Joe_fusionxt: ok, look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if any errors show in there (EE)05:17
nw-busser, do not know how to configure it05:17
ussernw-b, the way i remember it you had to give everything a static ip, we set it up with right05:17
soreauwoodworker: no problem, glad you got it working05:17
SnakDocmazda01 no sure haven't was looking for something to do that :P lol just never got around to it05:18
nw-busser, well, it was
ussernw-b, those kinds of devices usually have a setup page, that you can access through you browser05:18
fusionxtchow do i look at it tho, just using the command prompt itself?05:18
nw-band for windows05:18
nw-busser, and for windows05:18
ussernw-b, im assuming NAS wants to receive the ip automatically but it cant or gets from your router, the router gives out ips from subnet05:19
fusionxtcJoe_ : how do i look at it tho, just using the command prompt itself?05:19
Joe_fusionxt: cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep EE05:19
ussernw-b, you can either give the NAS the static ip or change your router settings to give out ip from range05:19
Joe_fusionxt: that should spit out any lines that have an error in them05:19
fusionxtcJoe_ : when i put it into the line for the code it said permission denied05:20
Joe_fusionxt: put sudo in front of it (will ask for password)05:20
nw-busser, I setup my NAS drive to work on on port 2405:20
ussernw-b, what i'd is temporarily disable the static ip on your windows box, see what ip router gives it, then if its 192.168.1.something go to your routers web page, usually and change the ip range that it gives out05:20
fusionxtcJoe_ : ohhhhh05:20
ussernw-b, NAS should be on the same subnet ie,
ussernw-b, if you can somehow change on the router to 192.168.0.something you should be set05:21
nw-busser, ok, I think I can make it happen05:21
nw-bthen I can access the drive via web browser?05:21
nw-busser, then I can access the drive via web browser?05:21
moymoy[R]: i'm doing ls as root on for the .gvfs directory on all the home folders05:22
nw-busser, I used to access the drive via Network connections, Windows Network, etc etc etc05:23
ussernw-b, no, if you give it ip from range it should work as before, what im saying NAS's routers etc all have some sort of config page that you can access from a browser05:23
fusionxtcdoesnt seem to be working05:23
[R]moymoy: only the user that owns the directory can ls it05:23

khelvanHello, I have a Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000, and the logitech software for Windows allows me to do things like easily edit the white balance, color balance, add interesting effects such as sepia and black & white, and other fun features. Are there any webcam programs for Ubuntu (I'm on Jaunty) that do similar things, preferably with a GUI interface?06:16
micahAli_nz you have to install it on a fresh disk06:16
Dr_Williswoodworker:  no idea  - i dont recall trying the presistant save usb on my laptops.   i just had one made yp for my desktop as a 'rescue' system06:16
Ali_nzmicah: sure, but dont need to format the disk clean first?06:17

micahAli_nz i dont really know i asked the same question once and thats what someone told me06:17

BysteI'm getting errors trying to install the LAN driver07:21
SuspectZeroi'll try that now then07:21
jorgenptOtherwise I wouldn't suggest it in here. ;-)07:21
[R]Byste: what kind of crappy ethernet card do you have that the kernel doesnt support it07:22
Bystethere's a folder on the Asus CD for linux drivers, supposedly compatible with 2.6.x kernals07:22
nanotubeSuspectZero: easytag, maybe?07:22
SuspectZeroi'll check it out nanotube07:22
Bysteit's integrated on the MoBo, I'll recheck what it is exactly07:23
BysteBut could you hear me out first? I think the trouble is elsewhere07:24
Bysteso I used the GUI to copy the folder from the CD to my Desktop07:24
Bysteso I could get out of read-only mode and all07:25
BysteI opened up Terminal to follow instructions in the readme07:25
Bystethe driver was packed as tar, bz207:25
LacobFmazda01: in nautilus, go Edit > Preferences > Media07:25
BysteI extracted that just fine07:25
SuspectZeroone more thing, is there a way to share folders in ubuntu. i have a folder on pc B which is on the same network as this pc and i would like to access one of its folders.07:26

SuspectZeroActionParsnip, yea i already have ssh set up so i can control the box remotely07:29
phpgunneranyone know much about overclocking or a irc room for the subject?07:29
nomad77Byste: then sudo modprobe foo.ko most likely07:29

ActionParsnipSuspectZero: then you can use the same service to file share07:29
SuspectZerophpgunner, if u dont get any help here u can try #hardware or #freenode07:30

Lartza_I get something like 800kb-1,5Mb of transfer speed between my ubuntu and windows on LAN07:37
[R]jbu: its not really07:37
Lartza_Nick_Meister: Google it07:37

Lartza_Nick_Meister: YOu need to blacklist some stuff07:38
LacobFNick_Meister disconnect the wire to the system beep if it's a desktop07:38
Lartza_Nick_Meister: Dr_Willis's stuff :)07:38

mazda01Dr_Willis, that's not it. how many time do I have to tell people this. the setting does not control what is occuring I have already checked that. thanks for trying though.07:38
mazda01LacobF, that's a thought. brb07:39
Nick_Meisterim gonna try to beep thing07:39
Nick_Meisteri mean the xset07:39
Nick_Meisterok it appears like it worked thanks07:39
Lartza_rmmod pcspkr07:39
Nick_Meisterdo i need to do that every time i log on then?07:39
Nick_Meisterthe xset thing07:39

Lartza_Dr_Willis: Thos beeps he is turning off07:41
Dr_WillisstaticRails:  try making a new user see if it works for them also?07:41
Dr_Willisblacklist is controlled by some file in /etc/ i forget what one07:41
ubottuTo blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »07:41

fwaokdaCan someone help me try and repair my display settings? I have a Radeon 4850 card and have dual monitors setup.  I recently used "Computer Janitor" and it screwed everything up, i think. So I uninstalled (purged) all the ati packages I could think of and then reinstalled from scratch.  I've now managed to get the displays back up with one extended display BUT I can't get the full resolution of the main monitor only the resolution sett07:46
fwaokdaing prior to it.07:46
Lartza_So why is my ftp only around 1,5Mb(slower usually)07:46
bullgard4lstarnes: I deleted 'host = "MD97600" in ~/.irssi/config. I did /reload. I errorneously issued the command '/connect irc.gnome.org'. Irrsi connected me to irc.gnome.org and gave me the nickname bullgard5. I do not know how to undo this command. --  I issued the command '/connect irc.gimp.net'. It connected me to irc.gimp.net. Voila!  But it gave me the nickname bullgard6.07:46

nikolamWhat option should I choose to preserve another ubuntu instalaltion that also boots from menu.lst?07:53

nikolamInterphase, every time I update kernel, since 6.10 Interphase ...07:53
Lartza_rhin0: Or not, you need more powerful computer for that07:54
nikolamBecause kernel update messe menu.lst every time.07:54
Myx0x3nwm found! suso apt-get remove hangover07:54
Interphaseniko, what I did with that was save my old menu.lst, then copy/paste what I had edited into the new one07:54

nikolamInterphase, I didi it 2, for 2 years And I am finally sick of it.07:54
Lartza_Are you sure your setup is not corrupted, if it's not it might need some settings changes or might not work at all.07:55

nikolamInterphase, Try it on 7 servers07:55
rhin0@Bolice, Lartza: depends on the specs of the computer, I run 2 gigs of ram and an old dual core and can run cs3 photoshop in virtual box on virtual xp07:55
shaullxnautilus is ftp client? :O07:55
Interphasenikolam, that does sound like it sucks07:55
Interphasethen I don't know07:55

Lartza_But I have a semi-new singlecore with 2 gigs07:56

ubottulogankoester: 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.07:59
Slartfwaokda: check in /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see why it's not using the higher resolutions07:59

bullgard4lstarnes: '/help' lists 122 keywords. '/help <keyword>' prints the syntax of the <keyword> command but not the semantics (and in some cases a rudimentary semantics). Where can I find the semantics of the Irssi <keyword> commands?08:06
fwaokdaSlart, it keeps reverting to 1680x1050 (which is what the second monitor uses) but It is able and has used before the resolution 1920x108008:06
Slartfwaokda: that was the entire log file?08:06

wizzo_gabkdlly: How you do that?08:08
fwaokdaSlart, it said it has changed so there is the updated one after i reloaded it08:08
gabkdllywizzo_: look for "Partition Editor" under System08:08
fwaokdaSlart, I guess I could also change the settings and let it mess up and then repost the log after it messes up, if you want?08:08
ubottuTo select the usplash artwork you want, use "sudo update-alternatives --config usplash-artwork.so && sudo update-initramfs -u" - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/USplashCustomizationHowto for adding your custom artwork08:08
wizzo_gabkdlly: I don't see that under System08:10
Slartfwaokda: this might be an ATI problem... you can see in the log file that it does detect that one monitor can do 1920x1080 and the other one 1400x1050 .. but then the log file ends before you can see anything about why it selects the video mode it does08:10

lstarneszydas: or, if you need an actual URL, irc://irc.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-tr08:15
bullgard4nomad77: Your message is too short to be comprehensible.08:16
fwaokdaSlart, well now I have the proper resolution on one monitor but the second monitor isn't receiving a signal anymore... know of a way to fix that?08:17
nomad77bullgard4: documentation at http://irssi.org/08:17
Neroon@staticrails is your cdrom in your repository list?08:18
bullgard4nomad77: I had done much snooping in http://irssi.org/ and could not find the semantics of the 122 commands. Tell me, for example, where is the semantics of the /SERVER command to be found precisely.08:19
fwaokdaSlart, ok I have the proper 1920x1080 on the primary monitor, but the highest I can get to work on the secondary monitor is 1400x1050 it seems... no the highest which is 1680x105008:19
fwaokdaSlart, this gets stranger and stranger... now I tried to revert back to the 1680x1050 and now it works...08:20
der_Onhello. I've just dragged a folder in nautilus to the space where all mounted devices are listed and now it disappeard! Is there any chance that this folder still exists somewhere?08:20
fwaokdaSlart, I'm gonna try logging off and back on and seeing if it sticks08:20
nomad77i'd use /help server if you need more,then i don't know08:20
Joe_umm... I made a mistake when I edited visudo, now I can't sudo anything (to include getting back in there to fix the mistake)... what can I do?08:20
lstarnesbullgard4: I would suggest asking the developers to make more concise documentation, including full definitons of all semantics08:21
ActionParsnip1Joe_: boot to recovery root console and change it08:21
lstarnesbullgard4: however, for the average user, the current documentation is usually sufficient08:21
Joe_actionparsnip1 arg, was hoping something other than that... oh well, thanks08:21
bullgard4lstarnes: Is a Launchpad bug report the proper way to ask developers for a more concise Irssi documentation?08:22
lstarnesbullgard4: irssi's official website, http://irssi.org/, has the appropriate contact details somewhere08:23
lstarnesbullgard4: alternatively, you yourself could make more concise documentation08:23
bullgard4lstarnes: I noted times and again heated debates in the IRC channel #irssi about this issue.08:23
bullgard4lstarnes: I could do only guesswork as I do not know what the developer intended when he wrote the code.08:24

EdgEyis it possible to change a partition's number without erasing it?08:27
EdgEyi want to change my /dev/sda2 to /dev/sda1 it's the only partition on the drive08:27
ActionParsnip1Guest75519: i'd say yes using the proprietary driver at www.ati.com08:27
staticRailsNeroon:  r u there???08:27
SlartEdgEy: I think those are in the order they appear on the drive08:27
Neroon@staticrails *nod*08:27
SlartEdgEy: afaik that's one of the reasons they are using uuids now08:28

staticRailsNeroon: how one can reinstall a package from the command line without newtork connection, but using the bootable flash memory08:28
EdgEyi rearranged some partitions on one of my drives, and windows is now refusing to boot, i think it's looking at the wrong partition to boot from08:28
ActionParsnip1Brett1: may help08:28
der_Onhello. I've just dragged a folder in nautilus to the space where all mounted devices are listed and now it disappeard! Is there any chance that this folder still exists somewhere?08:28
neilHi, I was wondering if someone could help me with an issue using virtual box to run ubuntu08:28
EdgEyjust going to mess about with the boot.ini and try different numbers i guess08:28
SlartEdgEy: or.. wait.. you said it was the only partition on the drive? and still it's /dev/sda2 ?08:28
staticRailsNeroon: I wnat to reinstall gconf08:28
Neroon@staticrails i though you wanted to use the live cd?08:28
EdgEySlart well i probably have to reboot then, there was a /dev/sda1 i've deleted08:29
SlartEdgEy: ah... yes.. it might change when you reboot08:29
ActionParsnip1staticRails: so is the usb device the media you installed with?08:29
staticRailsNeroon: I can't login ActionParsnip1  ya08:29
staticRailsActionParsnip1: sorry.... yes08:29
Shazburgder_On: The file is on whatever device you dropped it onto.08:30
ActionParsnip1staticRails: then if you enable it as a repo in /etc/apt/sources.lst then it will be used. the top line references the installation media08:30
der_OnShazburg: and if i dropped it between two devices?08:30
staticRailsActionParsnip1: tkx08:30
Neroonactionparsnip1 saves me typing ;-)08:30
Shazburgder_On: It'll be on one of them. That behaviour is always a copy/move depending on the device.08:31
neilI still cannot get the display to work correctly, I only get a maximum resolution of 800x600 with a ratio of 4:3. I have tried running the guest additions for linux like someone in here suggested yesterday but it still won't work08:31
neilAnyone have any ideas?08:31
CorpXanyone know how to tell putty to start a new logfile to log stuff?08:32
Neroon@neil so the guest additions are installed?08:32
jeffwheelerI seem to remember some way of manipulating Xorg settings without editing xorg.conf itself; are there some XML files that can set values without having to create a specific xorg.conf?08:32
der_OnShazburg: what if i accidently dropped it onto trash and now if i want to open trash, it says: The folder contents could not be displayed.08:32
Neroon@neil hm08:32
Shazburgder_On: That would be a bad thing.08:32
staticRailsActionParsnip1: What should I write in this file?08:32
der_Onmaybe recovery?08:33
Shazburgder_On: What filesystem are you using?08:33
Bundestrojanerhow can i install an older version of nvidia-glx? the newest version in apt doesn't support geforce 408:33
Neroon@staticrails you shouldnt need to add anything. but the first line should be your install media08:33
ActionParsnip1CorpX: putty -log ~/newLogFileName08:33
der_OnShazburg: the folder was on an ntfs file-system08:33
Neroon@staticrails it might have an # in front of it08:33
Shazburgder_On: This might suck then. Hold on a sec.08:34
DaveTarmacHi folks - having a bit of a dumb morning, how do I create a tar.gz file that includes all files in a dir, including hidden files?08:34
neilI tried it yesterday and it allowed a a higher resolution but the aspect ratio wasn't correct to fit correctly on 15.5 inch wide screen correctly and when I reloaded unbuntu today it was back to normal with the maximum at 800x60008:34
SlartBundestrojaner: use the hardware drivers dialog thingy.. it has older versions as well08:34
der_OnShazburg: ive already opened the terminal and found out there is a ntfsundelete command. I think i need to unmount the drive first, cause it says that the drive is in use.08:34
ActionParsnip1staticRails: the top line shold mention the install media, uncomment it and save the new fike. then have the device attatched and run: sudo apt-get update08:34
DaveTarmacI tried "tar -czvf nameoffile.tar.gz ."08:34
CorpXActionParsnip1, i want to start a new log file in the middle of a session08:34

ShazburgDaveTarmac: The directory itself, and it's contents.08:40
Neroon@neil sorry, but i don't know about ubuntu in a virtual machine08:40
ActionParsnip1!ask | haanuj08:41
ubottuhaanuj: 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. :-)08:41
dsotrFlannel: I think there was "cli" in the name :)08:41
neil@ActionParsnip1sorry totally new to learning PCs in depth and don't exactly understand the latter part of your question08:41
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, is there a way i can write that to a file so i can see all of it at once?08:41
neil@Neroon Thank you anyway08:41
DaveTarmacShazburg: is there a way to get it to do jsut the contents, only I'm moving the files to a web server and I'd rather not extract them and then copy them all to the root dir08:41
haanuji have a problem with 3D effects. that's not permanent08:41
Flannelfwaokda: instead of | less, do > file08:41
dsotrFlannel: can you point me to one of them anyways? they may have a link to the one I'm looking for08:42
Flannelfwaokda: so, dpkg -l | grep -i ati > file.txt08:42
Flanneldsotr: What are you looking to learn on this website?08:42
ActionParsnip1fwaokda: sure, instead of ' | less' change it to ' > ~/output.txt'08:42
dsotrFlannel: a nice command-line music player, like xmms08:42
ActionParsnip1fwaokda: dpkg -l | grep ati > ~/stuff.txt08:42
ActionParsnip1neil: its a command line command, run i in terminal08:43
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, Flannel, thanks08:43
ActionParsnip1fwaokda: 'ati' is fairly common in the english language08:43
ActionParsnip1fwaokda: if you want, you can grep it again to reduce results08:43
haanujplzzz HELP me08:44
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, well i purged quite a few packages(?) already that were ati packages but I still see menu shortcuts and stuff so im wondering if i got everything08:45
Slart!details | haanuj08:45
ubottuhaanuj: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."08:45
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, this is the only thing I see possibly related to ATi, ii  fglrx-modaliases                           2:8.620-0ubuntu1                               Identifiers supported by the ATI graphics dr08:45
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, think it is safe to remove that?08:45
ActionParsnip1not sure, i dont buy ati cards so i'm not the guy to ask08:46
neil@ActionParsnip1 It says: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: InnoTek Systemberatung GmbH VirtualBox Graphics Adapter08:46
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, ok thanks08:46
fwaokdaActionParsnip1, think im gonna leave it and do my reinstall of the drivers now08:46

ActionParsnip1neil: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=77775908:48
DaveTarmacShazburg: yeah mate08:48
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Okay, I think I got you covered.08:48
ActionParsnip1neil: edit your xorg.conf and make the display sections similar08:48
ShazburgDaveTarmac: tar cvf test.tar `ls -A1`08:48
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Those are backticks.08:48
ActionParsnip1neil: actually i'd just use the whole thing08:49
ActionParsnip1neil: your keyboard may be different (that example uses US layout, you can omit that line)08:49
ShazburgDaveTarmac: So that 'ls' will create a file list and tar will add them to the archive, recursively, with hidden files.08:49
DaveTarmacShazburg: ok, I'll give that a go, cheers08:49
ActionParsnip1neil: you will need    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf    to edit ti08:49
Neroon@haanuj can you deliver some more info, what and when works with your compiz?08:49
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Cheers.08:50

neil@Action Parsnip1 Still no luck, but to be honest I'm really not sure if I have did it correctly08:53
ActionParsnip1rd1089: you can add them to ~/.bashrc08:53
neilI am totally new to anything linux and these are the kind of things I hope to be learning08:54
ActionParsnip1neil: if you tab complete my name its easier, and it will highlight your text08:54
ActionParsnip1neil: you will learn08:54
ActionParsnip1neil: you need to get that text file as it is in the link i gave, then reboot. As long as you have the guest additions installed correctly then it will be fine08:55
ActionParsnip1neil: you needed to execute the .run file on the guest additions CD for your architecture08:55

corey_Hi, I'm currently on a live cd and I have 9.04 installed on my disk. The issue is a new version of libglib2.0-0 was compiled which broke a symbol causing 90% of the applications to stop working (xserver being the important one). So I'm left at the terminal and I'm trying to revert to the old version of libglib2.0-0. Any helpful pointers?09:01
dsotrrd1089: you can put the line in /etc/rc.local so09:02
staticRailsActionParsnip1: "Fatal server error" server is already active for display 0"09:02
zaphod_homeyes... should ^^09:02
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Did that help?09:02
ActionParsnip1rd1089: you could add them to /etc/rc.local09:02
DaveTarmacShazburg: still did the same thing - probably OS X's quirkyness09:02

corey_How can I remove a package without uninstalling it's dependencies?09:03
DaveTarmacI'm being lame now and trying to use CyberDuck's extract feature :(09:03
ActionParsnip1corey_: sudo apt-get --purge remove <package>09:03
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Oh! Yeah, OSX != Ubuntu. They have a different version of tar, so you'll get different behaviour.09:03
ActionParsnip1corey_: the deps will stay09:03
neilActionParsnip1: Nope, still no joy. To be honest, I'm feeling a bit crap because I feel like I'm bugging people, I feel like I should know the basics before I start asking for help but I can't start learning the basic until I can actually use my full screen.09:03
ActionParsnip1corey_: to remove the deps run: sudo apt-get --purge autoremove09:03
Slartcorey_: apt-get remove/purge won't uninstall the dependencies09:04
DaveTarmacShazburg: yeah, I figured that much - thought I'd take a gamble though, how different can a tar command be?09:04
mjklHi.  I have a dual XP setup (Home 32bit & Pro 64bit).  I also want to install 9.04.  However, it only seems to recognise one XP install and want to put 9.04 after this, not at the end of the disk as required.  Any ideas?!09:04
DaveTarmacthat little exercise showed me!09:04
ActionParsnip1neil: its all learning dude, dont sweat it09:04
Veratyr9is there a program similar to netstumbler for linux?  i'm in an apartment that gets free wifi from the landlord, signal sucks and need to play around with the antenna watching the signal change in real time (rather than the overall average that the standard icon displays)09:04
ActionParsnip1neil: maybe someone in #vbox can help09:04
neilActionParnsip1: thanks for understaning09:04
Neroon@neil that's why people are here, to help and getting help09:04
corey_Great. Could I chroot to a different disk and run the package manager on that?09:04
ActionParsnip1neil: as you use the OS you will get better at it09:04
ActionParsnip1neil: just like i'm sure you are with microsoft products09:05
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Quite a bit. BSD vs GNU and all that. But looking at the man files for OSX ls and tar, I don't see a reason why you'd be having that problem.09:05
neilI'll give that a try. Thanks for at least for trying to solve my issue.09:05
DaveTarmacShazburg: probably one of those days09:05
neilthats part of the reason i thought id give linux a try i was getting bored of windows09:06
corey_Is it possible to modify packages on disk when I'm running from livecd?09:06
jamiewanneil: stay with it im new too and will never go back09:06
neilAnyway, thanks for the help. See ya.09:06
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Well, you can fight it and find a way to bend the shell to your will, or you can accept the default and live with the parent directory being in the tarball.09:06
ActionParsnip1corey_: you can install and uninstall packages like an installed system09:06
ActionParsnip1corey_: your "disk" space is limited to how much ram you have09:06
staticRailsActionParsnip1: a lengthy error...  the last line is : "xauth: error in locking authority file /home/username/.Xauthority09:06
ShazburgDaveTarmac: You could always extract it in /tmp, then move the files where you need them.09:07
DaveTarmacShazburg: I'll just live with it09:07
corey_ActionParsnip1: I am talking about a physical disk installed with ubuntu09:07
DaveTarmacmore than one way to skin a cat09:07
SlartActionParsnip1: I think he means "can I install stuff to the installed system on disk while using a live cd"09:07
corey_ActionParsnip1: this ubuntu has a broken symbol, I want to replace the package while on the livecd09:07
ActionParsnip1staticRails: ok, whats the output of:  ls -l ~/.Xauthority     ?09:07
Slartcorey_: how many packages are you looking at reinstalling? just one?09:08
ActionParsnip1corey_: you can chroot to the installed system09:08
staticRailsActionParsnip1: anothe line which i think may be useful: "failed to initialize GEM. Falling back to classic."09:08
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Quite so. Best of luck to you.09:08
corey_Slart: yes, one.09:08
DaveTarmacShazburg: thanks again09:08
staticRailsthe owner is root root09:08
ActionParsnip1staticRails: thats why09:08
staticRailsActionParsnip1: the owner is root root09:08
corey_ActionParsnip1: and once chroot'd any dpkg command will effect that system?09:08
Slartcorey_: either use chroot.. or just download the package and install it in recovery mode09:08
ActionParsnip1staticRails: have you been running   sudo gedit  and/or   sudo nautilus   ?09:09
staticRailsActionParsnip1: when?09:09
ActionParsnip1staticRails: when you had a desktop boot09:09
corey_Slart: actually, the package I want to overwrite with is from the livecd, where could I find the .deb?09:10
Slartcorey_: packages.ubuntu.com09:10
corey_Slart: so the packages on the livecd is obfuscated?09:10
Slartcorey_: I'm not sure of the structure of a live cd.. it should be on it somewhere.. but I have no idea where09:10

shaullxanyone? please09:12
shaullxthat important :(09:12
ravinduIs that true Ubuntu jaunty does not support compiz fusion09:13
ActionParsnip1staticRails: ok then you have borked your ownerships. most likely by launching gui apps with sudo instead of gksudo09:13
Shazburgfwaokda: CTRL+ALT+F1 will drop you to another terminal and you can login, then drop to runlevel 3 from there.09:13
Shazburgshaullx: Nope.09:13
DaveTarmacShazburg: don't know if you're interested, but it turns out that in an archive, OS X creates an __MACOSX directory with a mirror of the archive inside it, funnily enough with ._ prefixed to the filenames09:13
ActionParsnip1staticRails: if you run:  sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/$USER09:13
Slartshaullx: I have no idea.. possibly you could get to the cmos somehow and download it.. but then you'd have to interpret it.. sounds hard and, honestly, kind of meaningless.. what are you trying to do?09:13
Shazburgshaullx: That sort of thing is up to your motherboard manufacturer.09:13
staticRailsActionParsnip1: definitely you are right... I hadn't used gksudo in my life... :o09:13
fwaokdaShazburg, I was with you until the runlevel3 part... is that a command I just type in?09:14
spikemcchi someone can help me make a shortcut to lauch a python script (fof game)09:14
ShazburgDaveTarmac: Fancy old Apple and their directory litter.09:14
ActionParsnip1staticRails: sudo is for command line commands ONLY, like apt-get, cp, mv, ln etc09:14
ActionParsnip1staticRails: gksudo is for GUI apps, like gedit, nautilus etc09:14
Shazburgfwaokda: You can. "sudo runlevel 3" should work.09:15
staticRailsActionParsnip1: ... thx. how can it be fixed?09:15
ActionParsnip1staticRails: if you use sudo for gui apps it doesnt set up the environment correctly and you get garbaged ownerships just like you are seeing09:15
fwaokdaShazburg, says "unkown"09:15
OpenBluntSurgryis there anyway to install ubuntu from live CD and keep my music I have now?09:15
fwaokdaShazburg, unknown rather09:15
ActionParsnip1staticRails: the command I gave, to chown your files back to your user09:15
Shazburgfwaokda: runlevel 3 means most of your daemons will run (if they're configured to do so), you'll have networking, and X won't start.09:16
Shazburgfwaokda: One sec.09:16
fwaokdaShazburg, seemed to do the trick though after alt f7'n back in thanks09:16

SlartShazburg: I think ubuntu only uses runlevel 2 and 509:16
SlartShazburg: it's different from.. say Debian09:16
ActionParsnip1mjkl: if thats where the unallocated space is then its fine09:17
ravinduIs that true Ubuntu jaunty does not support compiz fusion??09:17
chartoinHi, I have an issue and the day has been really bad, can someone help me with ubuntu+windows MBR issue?09:17
Slart!runlevels | Shazburg09:17
ubottuShazburg: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.09:17
staticRailsActionParsnip1: new problem09:18

L33tHaxor666Hey peoples what is good09:23
staticRailsActionParsnip1:  the problem is not solved... when I changed the owner to my user. but when I try to login it takes me back to the login screen again...09:23
ActionParsnip1staticRails: ok, but you should be the owner of all files in your home folder09:23
L33tHaxor666I was wondering if anyone knows anything about widesrceen formatting09:23

spikemccindus ok I will try when I got it back I lended it for a while to help a friend on vista 64 (outch the troll)09:24

RevoActionParsnip1: sorry for the slow reply, echo $http_proxy does indeed return the proxy09:25
ravinduI will try what is your suggestion to do further?09:25
chartoinActionParsnip1: windows setup goes blank ofter "press any key to continue" because of MBR issue09:25
ActionParsnip1indus: then the file will not be in any other place other than home as users only have write access to their home folder in a standard install09:25
ActionParsnip1chartoin: ask in ##windows then09:25
ShazburgL33tHaxor666: Hell of a nick you have there. What isn't working?09:26
indusActionParsnip1: i remember when i installed quake4,it gave root permissions to quake4 folder in home, i changed it back though09:26
L33tHaxor666 well i dont have any widescreen resolution09:26
chartoinActionParsnip1: thank you.09:26
L33tHaxor666and i cant seem to find the right cmds09:26
ActionParsnip1indus: the home folder is made for user data, you probably ran the installer as root and then told it to install to your user area09:26
neilActionParnsip1: Just to let you know I now have a full screen ubuntu. Also, to give you a bit of a laugh. The reason for it not working cos some numpty didn't realise that the update manager hadn't been ran.09:26
L33tHaxor666i have an i96509:26

indusActionParsnip1: i had to change ownership of hidden quake folder to me as nvidia wont load drivers09:29

Andorinmoymoy: Thanks anyway for trying; I'm going to register on the forums and post my question there.10:35
indusstaticRails: but nvm, try booting normally and network should work,its not depending on GUI10:35
indusstaticRails: why dont you try failsafe terminal then?10:36
staticRailsindus: reinstall a fresh ubuntu???10:36
staticRailsindus: i used it.. i don't have any connection in that.10:36
mzzso how do I get a list of the roots used by apt-get autoremove? deborphan -a is close, but seems to treat suggests and recommends identically.10:36
indusstaticRails: you said x works with failsafe,then shouldnt you be able to install packages10:36
mzz(either gui or cli is fine)10:36
moymoyindus: i thought on a standard ubuntu installation, the networking is handled by GNOME, so one has to at least log into a gnome session to get networking ready10:36
to_phishie: grawity: yes, should be that, but in this tutorial https://help.ubuntu.com/9.04/serverguide/C/dns-configuration.html , they have as IP for their server, so what do I set for it if I havent a such address?10:37
indusmoymoy: nope10:37
staticRailsindus: there is no connection in failsafe.10:37
indusstaticRails: hmm10:37
mzzmoymoy: I haven't used them, but I'm pretty sure networkmanager has a cli interface too10:37
indusmoymoy: networking is a service started on boot time10:37

indusmoymoy: gui makes it easy to configure of course, imagine entering ip addresses without a gui :)10:37
moymoyindus: when boot up, ping'ing google results in the host not resolving (before i log in to GNOME) .. but now i have my configuration in my rc.local file10:38
=== c is now known as charitwo
gsneddersHey, I'm using BitlBee, yet the init script isn't starting it as the bitlbee user10:38
indusmoymoy: hmm you probably trying before networking has started,but yes probably that rc.local has some settings10:39
indusmoymoy: but i think that too is read before gdm loads up10:39
devilneed to install gcc java on ubuntu.10:39
indusdevil: sudo apt-get install gcc10:40
mzzooh, apt has python bindings. Perhaps those can tell me.10:40
indusdevil: which java. there are quite a few10:40
moymoyindus: yup, it is.. maybe it was just a kink left from my upgrade from 8.10.. but i did a fresh install with a 9.04 minimal CD and networking works after boot, even before i login through gdm .. but i edited my rc.local file because i wanted a static LAN ip10:40
devilindus: i have downloded gcc C++ compiler .10:41
indusmoymoy: ya think about ubuntu servers, they dont have gdm :)networking depending on gui wil kill the whole concept10:41
indusdevil: ok and?10:42
indusdevil: why download when you can install from synaptic10:42
indusdevil: main menu> system>administration>synaptic10:42
devilindus: its because i dnt have a hard disk and i am booting ubuntu via usb .10:42
viseHi.. why is my overal download speed in Transmission double that of the only torrent im downloading? The torrent shows 8 kB/s (only torrent) and the overall speed is 16 kB/s.. why so?10:42
indusdevil: ok and?10:43
Slartvise: overall=upload+download? just a guess10:43
devilindus: hence i am looking forward to get all the necessary packages on the usb and install them each time i log on10:43
vadiaudio not working help me plz10:44
indusdevil: hmm that way, check packages.ubuntu.com10:44
viseOops.. sorry.. So why is the torrent download speed less than the total download speed on Transmission? The only torrent i am downloading shows 8 kB/s and the overall is 16 kB/s.. Theres no upload taking place...10:44
indusdevil: you want to download the binaries then install on some other system?10:44
moymoyvise: the overall accounts for protocol traffic also.. because your client has to communicate with the tracker as well as all of the peers you're connected to10:44
indusi hate torrents, i get the worst speeds with them10:45
vadiaudio promblem in 9.04 is a bug ?10:45
moymoyvise: also.. what kind of internet do you have? is 16kb/s normal for you?10:45
devilindus: hmm yes .10:45
bullgard4Where can I find a definition of the term 'host bridge'? (lspci uses it.)10:45
ubottuYou can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !Adept, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 20000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!10:45
visemoymoy, Okay, but in utorrent on windows, there is not much difference in the two rates...10:45
visemoymoy, Yes 17 is normal...10:45
gsneddersHow can I find out what user a daemon is running as?10:46
indusdevil: use the firefox ubuntu package search tool in location bar10:46
devilindus: tell me.. i have downloded  files .. a tar.bz2 and tar.gz  can i use apt-get to install the package10:46
moymoyvise: utorrent is probably much better at handling connections.. not that transmission isn't a great client also.. i personally use Deluge, and it maxes out my bandwidth10:46
grawitygsnedders: "ps u"10:46
visemoymoy, Il try Deluge...10:46
Nameless_aumoymoy: what is ur opinion on ktorrent?10:47
indusdevil: nope apt get is only for deb files but no problem, you can install tar files from the system by untarring them10:47
moymoyindus: always maxes out my bandwidth =] .. even if there're like 5 seeds, within those 5 seeds lurks some kind soul that has an upload rate of 70kb/s10:47
indusdevil: umm i mean10:47
visemoymoy, What speed do you get.. just curious..10:47
=== ogra_ is now known as ogra
moymoyvise: 110-140kb/s10:47
indusmoymoy: actually, i have tried last 10 years and still dont know how to use a torrent10:47
visemoymoy, Ah good.. I must upgrade this ** connection.. :)10:48
CybertinusI'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on my Eee 901. I installed a PPA for Blueman. Then the package manager did a little wierd (Synaptic didn't want to start, the update manager didn't want to install updates) so I rebooted Ubuntu. And now X doesn't want to start :(. And there is nothing wierd in /var/log/Xorg.0.log10:48
moymoyNameless_au: ktorrent is a good client.. and has lots of features(that i don't use) so that's why i went with Deluge... (plus kde apps look bad on gnome)10:48
Cybertinushow could I see why X isn't starting?10:48
indusdevil: tar xzvf <filename> for gz extentions10:48
pinoyskullanybody> i have a file...   file A contains 1 2 3 4 5     then file B contains 1 2 3 4 5 6     i want to compare file A and B then the difference will be outputted to file C10:49
devilindus: ok ill try10:49
grawityindus: tar xvf is enough, tar autodetects everything now.10:49
grawitypinoyskull: "diff fileA fileB > fileC" ?10:49
indusgrawity: ok cool, when did that happen10:49
grawityindus: long ago10:49
pinoyskullgrawity:  hmmm, that simple?10:49
pinoyskullill try that10:49
moymoyCybertinus: have you tried reconfiguring X? .. sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg10:49
moymoyvise: what kind of connection do you have? dialup?10:50
Cybertinusmoymoy: running that now10:50
indusdevil: ok so you got that?10:51
pinoyskullgrawity:  is there a way to sanitize diff output? like removing the codes10:51
moymoyindus: so many great torrent guides out there..10:51
indusCybertinus: check /var/log/Xorg.log10:51
