netsurf3 having problems with ubuntu 9.04, two different headsets same problem that the audio appears to not be resampled correctly. The headset supports a rate of 8000 but from what i can tell alsa sends as stereo 41000. -Dplug:bluetooth option causes it to sound like i am listening to a noisy 56k modem (makes things worse)00:19
[R]jetblast: what package?00:19
jetblast[R]: Java600:19
erUSULQuincy: maybe you need to pass the old OSS "/dev/dsp" device. try with that "/dev/dsp"00:19

netsurf3linuxguy2009, they are generic HSP compatible bluetooth headsets00:20

netsurf3linuxguy2009, yeah i knew roughly but like i said these are cheap HSP/voice bluetooth headsets00:22
linuxguy2009netsurf3: If you have stuttering and/or noise, you may have to set it to use the native sample rate.00:22
netsurf3linuxguy2009, how can i do that exactly?00:22
erUSULQuincy: never done that... not even know what that file is for... i'm sure there is some how to you can follow out there00:22
[R]defectiv: you just siad you dindt want them to "alter"00:22

VorondilQuick question: I updated this machine from 8.10 to 9.04 today, and my compose key is back to being a context menu.  I tried adding an Option "XkbOptions" "compose:menu" to my xorg.conf, but I still get a context menu.  `setxkbmap -option "compose:menu"`, on the other hand, works.  My xorg.conf is here: http://nopaste.com/p/aSWJZYlOD  Any direction would be appreciated.00:23
linuxguy2009netsurf3: Try several of the standard sample rates such as 44100, 22050, 48000 etc.00:23
defectiv[R]: not alter the directory itself, right. but be able to put stuff INTO it.00:23
defectiv[R]: i believe it's 1777.00:23
netsurf3linuxguy2009, how do i force this?00:23
[R]defectiv: what does "alter" mean then?00:23
defectivthen the user can alter anything inside of that directory that he has permissions to alter, and even delete that stuff. but cannot delete the directory itself.00:23
linuxguy2009netsurf3: I have a USB headset I use with gtkrecordmydesktop and I have to set it to its native 48000 and then the static and chopping disappear.00:23
netsurf3alsa appears to not do this by its self00:23
defectiv[R]: chmod rm etc.00:23
linuxguy2009netsurf3: Not sure.00:23
defectivyou can alter what's INSIDE that directory, but not that directory.00:24
uknownis there a what to see if ur drivers are installed correctly00:24
sixdrawHi all, I set up my s-video connection from my nvidia card to my tv's rca connection today. The only problem is I'm only getting black and white picture. I have a NVidia Geforce 6600. I've worked out that what I need to do is get composite output somehow but I can't find a setting for this. Anybody know how? Thanks00:24
linuxguy2009netsurf3: Are you trying to record into an application or what exactly?00:24
[R]defectiv: only the owner can chmod a directory... and only someone with write perms to the owner directory can remove something in it00:24
netsurf3linuxguy2009, short term i'd just like to have a portable microphone and speaker for a netbook or something, long term: skype00:25
=== ring1 is now known as ring0
MattPhilieWhat do you recommend to use that i like iTunes but for Ubuntu..?00:26
linuxguy2009netsurf3: Ok so I have never used bluetooth before, but if it makes the headset show up as a standard sound device, you should be able to simply go into the system, preferences, sound and select the bluetooth device as a recording source. and then simply use the volume mixer window to adjust levels and dynamic compression etc.00:26
[R]MattPhilie: i use rhythmbox00:26
defectiv[R]: if you set the directory's perms to anything that would allow a user to create files/directories with in it, then he'd also be able to rm chmod it.00:26
linuxguy2009MattPhilie: I have an ipod and I love gtkpod for transfering music, gpixpod for photos, easytag for tagging.00:27
sixdrawnobody know how to get composite tv out on nvidia cards?00:27
Nielsensixdraw, you need a colorfix s-video plug...00:27
[R]defectiv: you've lost me... but whatever00:27
defectivif /var/www is chown root.root, and you want to enable some user to create e.g. /var/www/his_rails_app, then you have to give "other" write permissions.00:27
netsurf3linuxguy2009, it does not always show up. i have virtually everything working with the headset just the huge intollerable audio sampling problem00:27

fwaokdaI have the gnome desktop panel with expand off is there away to get the handles on both sides to go away? it kinda ruins the panel w/ transparency on00:29
defectiv[R]: Sticky bit. It was used to trigger process to "stick" in memory after it is finished, now this usage is obsolete. Currently its use is system dependant and it is mostly used to suppress deletion of the files that belong to other users in the folder where you have "write" access to.00:29

VCoolioKangarooo: in context menu select "scripts", it's in there like you named it00:43
dhaval_Yeah there isn't any volume leveling in Ubuntu00:45
dhaval_Not going to shout. Just going to download my songs...00:45
dhaval_But I have to ask, why isn't there volume leveling in an OS? I have the same problem in my cell phone.00:46
dtchenbecause that's not the purvey of the operating system [driver]00:47
dtchensome applications have volume ramping (see pulseaudio 0.9.15+)00:47

=== MidsummerDawn is now known as Locke
dhaval_normal song files00:50
buckydhaval_: MP3 ?00:50
dhaval_yeah mp3, m4a, mp400:50
dhaval_etc, etc00:50
buckydhaval_: why didn't you look into this and install mp3gain or some other some such program to fix this?00:50
dhaval_Now I know there's a difference between the formats, and the quality00:50
dhaval_mp3gain is for windows only right?00:50
dhaval_and I think i've tried it before, didn't work.00:51
dhaval_And something tells me I shouldn't do it agian.00:51
buckydhaval_: mp3gain is in the repos00:51
dhaval_Alright, i'll try that.00:51
dhaval_The xstream thingi didn't work00:51
buckydhaval_: just because you don't understand something doesn't mean it doesnt work00:51
dhaval_I was sure it did, but tried it for different songs and no.00:51
buckydhaval_: are you going to be  in here crying about this for another 3 hours?00:52
pedestrianentranfyi google earth on ubuntu is running SWEET as soon as i turned off the atmosphere.................00:52
dhaval_Yes I know, but, given the fact that this problems exists in my phone AND Computer00:52
adrianaGoogle Earth is very slow and is not rendering. I know i it has to run i my PC because when i had WinXp it did work.00:52
dhaval_I don't know, if you don't want me to cry I won't. But just keep giving me ideas ok?00:52
ZencydeNo one can help me with my grub problem? :)00:52
dhaval_What problem?00:52
k44d33adriana: try updating your display drivers00:53
buckydhaval_: what does your phone have to do with ubuntu00:53
ZencydeI'm not sure which tool to use to autoconfigure GRUB to support Windows XP. Or rather, to rewrite menu.list.00:53
lucaadriana: maybe it is a 3d issue, have you got an ati or nvidia card?00:53
ZencydeOr was it boot.config?00:53
adrianaI know i have VIA video card, and I have installed openchrome00:53
dhaval_Well, for one thing it also runs linux. 2: I have the same normalization problem with my phone's mp3 player00:54
buckydhaval_: use google, look in the repos for audio file manipulation programs and use your brains00:54
lucaZencyde: it is /boot/grub/menu.lst00:54
dhaval_I did use google, at from what I found one can conclude that there isn't any help for me.00:54
Zencydeluca: Should I edit it by hand or should I use a tool to do it?00:54
bruenigsebsebseb: giggle eh?00:54
dhaval_I'm going to look for mp3gain00:54
lucaZencyde: before doing anything explain me what have you done so far00:55
adrianaI dont have ATI nor nVidia00:56
Zencydeluca: I have Windows XP freshly installed on another drive. /dev/sdb/ I would like to be able to boot into it using GRUB so that I don't have to change my boot order to boot into Windows from time to time. What would be the recommended method for configuring GRUB?00:56
buckydhaval_: again?  why didn't you apt-cache show mp3gain three hours ago when i told you00:57
lucaok Zencyde, the tool SHOULD be grub-update00:57
ZencydeAh, thank you. Run as su?00:57
buckydhaval_: also look at sox ..it's been around forever00:57
lucabut I'll say that it does not work everytime00:57
dhaval_I was busy then and ok, i'll look for sox00:58
dhaval_But I just had another idea00:58
buckydhaval_: all this is very faq and doc on the internet try google sound files+volume+linux00:58
sebsebsebbruenig: that channel, no silly00:58
Zencydeluca: grub-update doesn't seem to be a command. :o00:58
dhaval_Didn't find anything on google, YET but i'm looking00:58
lucaso, Zencyde: to avoid any trouble i'll say you have a look in the menu.lst, after all you have only to add a stanza00:59
ZencydeIndeed. I'm just not in the mood for trial and error. Any idea what my entry should be? Should be on partition 0.00:59

ctmjrcoz_: rings01:07
lucaadriana: no, ubuntu by default ships with "nice 3d effects" enabled, but some 3d apps like google earth eat much more horsepower so disabling those ubuntu desktop effects can give the app the power it needs01:07

wahnfrieden_I have a widescreen so I always like to have things side by side01:49
adrianaluca, thank you very much!01:49
DasEirobi2: manufacturer ? hardwareinfo ?01:49
lucaadriana: i think the drivers suck then :P01:50
jduwahnfrieden_, you can choose a different wm that is compatible with gnome. ie  you just have to switch out metacity for something tiling.01:50
lucaadriana: the "via" module should be the graphic driver01:50
lucaso you're actually using it01:50

thiebaudesince i have firefox 3.5 can i get rid of firefox 3?01:51
jduwahnfrieden,  well, with a few patches, dwm behaves nicely with gnome, but I would look into wmii, xmonad, etc and see what they say about gnome support.01:51
johnnymacwhat triggers 'init'?01:51
hipitihoprobi2: sorry that is all I needed and all I know01:51
th0rjohnnymac: you might want to check out tldp.org...they have some really good books covering such details01:51
robi2dasei: the brand is Prodipe. The model is 4i4o01:52
wahnfrieden_I tried  xmonad but it seems to need lots of hand configuration to work, only seems targeted at 'power users'/tweakers so far01:52
jdujohnnymac,     bios -> boot loader -> initramfs -> kernel -> init             iirc01:52

hipitihopdoes anyone know if it is possible to connect a softphone like twinkle to an ATA ? so that it uses the ATA's codecs etc ?01:57
jdujohnnymac, no.   and / is the logical beginning of the filesystem01:57
robi2there must be something buggy with the realtime kernel.. I'm not alone with that problem..01:57
jdujohnnymac, /bin, /sbin are where many basic binaries are stored.  /usr/bin  contains binaries more likely to be used by the user01:58
johnnymacSo the filesystem is not part of the kernel?01:58
jdujohnnymac, correct01:58
gogetajohnnymac: lol no01:58
r3l1cjdu:  no not in there, these are nautilus windows that are popping up01:59

Kangarooor3l1c, all is ok now? so where did you removed them? i have the same problem.. i unchecked to remember but it remembered last remebering.02:00
jdur3l1c, at least the problem is better than having parts of the desktop not start (like the toolbars) because of session management :)02:01
r3l1cKangarooo:  ~/.config/session-state02:01
DasEirobi2: far away from doing music-mastering, I tried it (studio) once on low spec-box, and it did well, though google can't find any linux-related to tat mixer, so guess not;; you'd have to find out which usb-chip is in there, if a modul exists and then still need a soft for it ; did you try the win soft >> wine ?02:01

I installed a 4 inch, 12 volt fan this afternoon, and it was all running fine, for several hours. Then, as I was in XP at the time, playing Oblivion, I did a Windows Update, browsed the internet a bit, and then restarted. That's when the trouble started. Unplugging the new fan seems to have st02:27

sebsebsebchs200123: http://www.ubuntuforums.org is also good by the way03:01
edbianmfillpot: lilo is old news anyways ;)03:01
mfillpotarand: I knew that it could not find something that was needed, I was jsut too slow to figure out that it is due to a missing symlink.03:02
sebsebsebchs200123: well it's a Grub error so it's not exactly distro specific and so  ##linux could be useful the general Linux channal03:02
DasEimfillpot: a little more geeky that, especially if fs messes up under encryption, is what I like separate partitons for (is only one sys in the worse)03:02

_u2pop_k fine03:24
bthompso1chrisn2323: 9.0403:24
thiebaude_u2pop_: i have to agree with sebsebseb03:24
DasEimfillpot: ubuntu-tools ?03:24
sebsebseb_u2pop_: infact alpha2 can't even be dual booted with  other OS's at the moment as far as I know03:24
_u2pop_so i will download the 9.04 then in octuber i will upgrade to 9.1003:24
chrisn2323bthompso1 there should be a program that installs hardware drivers03:24
chrisn2323its in some menu in gnome03:24
bthompso1chrisn2323: i tried it didn't find anything03:24
sebsebseb_u2pop_: or  just do 8.04 for now 8.04.3  upgrade to it03:24
chrisn2323then do sudo apt-get install nameofatidriver03:24
dpuppMrPiracy, yeah i can boot with live cd and even without, but my options are wrong.03:24
sebsebseb_u2pop_: and  the  8.04  to 8.10  upgrade could be risky,  since  I have lost Internet connection after doing this, as well as other people03:25
_u2pop_seb but if i download 8.04.3 i can upgrade to 9.10 in october ?03:25
MrPiracydpupp, oh, u want to restore grub's default options?03:25
arandsebsebseb: is that grub2 issues? (Since I dual-boot happily so far...)03:25
bthompso1chrisn2323: how doyou know what the name of it is.03:25
dpuppi want to restore grub, and add windows as a boot option.03:25
sebsebsebarand: it was in the alpha2 notes, not sure how up to date they keep that03:25
Bookmangogeta: yes, w32codecs installed03:26
sebsebseb_u2pop_: you won't be able to upgrade  8.04.3  to  9.10, but you could wait for 10.04  April  2010,  and then upgrade directly from 8.04.3  to 10.0403:26
MrPiracydpupp, boot into linux and manually edit /boot/grub/menu.lst03:26
arand_u2pop_: well you will still have to go at it in three steps.03:26
dpuppMrPiracy, right now, i tried restoring grub, but now it dont see windows... and i tried adding windows,  but it wont load it. it gives an error and throws me back at the grub menu.03:26
chrisn2323willm i dont have 2 wireless cards...03:26
sebsebseb_u2pop_: ,but I already gave you a reason to clean install once 9.10 is out, so  you won't do that03:26
dpuppMrPiracy, thats what im trying now.03:26
n2diychrisn2323: Following your qso with rufuscure, makes me think you might be able to help me? I'm using grsync and ssh to do backups. Just now, I got a host key verification error, the RSA host key has changed? Google tells me this could be because my DNS or ip address changed? I checked my ip address, and it is the same, can I check my dns address? How would I tell ssh about the new DNS?03:26
willmOk Let me look again03:26
dpuppMrPiracy, but i dont know how to edit that file.03:27
_u2pop_so is much better me to download 9.04 then in october upgrade to 9.10 and done03:27
MrPiracydpupp, there are several examples on how to boot a windows partition from grub03:27
chrisn2323n2diy go into your router settings and give youself a static ip address03:27
sebsebseb_u2pop_: upgrade to 8.04.3  run that for now,  clean install when 9.10 is out :)03:27
MrPiracydpupp, are u on linux?03:27
_u2pop_because that removing a installing and upgrading and steps03:27
chrisn2323n2diy then configure your internet to use it03:27
thiebaudethe next desktop LTS will be april 201103:27
dpuppno, im in windows now on my desktop. i dont know a good irc client for linux03:27
dpuppMrPiracy, no, im in windows now on my desktop. i dont know a good irc client for linux03:27
chrisn2323dpupp try xchat03:28
_u2pop_seb i have the cd 7.0403:28
MrPiracydpupp, try xChat, it's the best for me03:28
sebsebseb_u2pop_: you can do an Internet upgrade to 7.10, and then from that to 8.04.303:28
_u2pop_7.04 to 8.04 then upgrade to 8.04.303:28
gogetaBookman: its buffering for me03:28
arandbthompso1: hardware drivers, under system > admin menu03:28
dpuppMrPiracy,  is it free?03:28
MrPiracydpupp, so all u need is to get to edit grub config file?03:28
willmchrisn2323: what happens if you try to connect without security enabled?03:28
sebsebseb_u2pop_: I thought you had 7.04 already installed?03:28
MrPiracydpupp, yes, it's in synaptics03:28
Bookmangogeta: funny, works on another Ubuntu 9.04machine, no issues03:28
chrisn2323i dont know willm03:29
bthompso1arand: then what nothing in there03:29
chrisn2323i have wpa enabled03:29
gogetaBookman: if you have the vlc plugin installed it whont work03:29
willmI would try that then03:29
chrisn2323and im not going to change it03:29
arandthiebaude: is it clearly defined (whole issue of maybe sync with debian etc...) ?03:29
dpuppMrPiracy, yeah, i just want to add windows as a boot option. it used to just boot windows. but then i restopred grub... and then it would just boot linux. i want it to offer me the choice between the two with a 10 second count down.03:29
Bookmangogeta: I have VLC plugin on the other machine that works03:29
thiebaudearand: yea, i heard about that03:29
willmchrisn2323: that way we can get a base for whether or not it is working03:29
chrisn2323the point is it should be working regardless03:30
gogetaBookman: i tryed with vlc it didnt do anything03:30
MrPiracydpupp, get back to linux, go to terminal and type sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst03:30
sebsebseb_u2pop_: oh lost you?   I thought you had 7.04 already instaleld03:30
EvolutionXtinctargh not sure why this box can't see the internet03:30
EvolutionXtinctall other boxes do.03:30
u2popseb not yet03:30
u2popi just have the cd03:30
arandbthompso1: if you started that thing and it shows nothing, it means no hardware which needs those drivers are detected....03:30
sebsebseb_u2pop_: oh you don't hve Ubuntu installed at all?03:30
MrPiracydpupp, a text editor will pop up showing u this file, it's acctually the menu grub will use to display03:30
gogetaBookman: just said wating03:30
MrPiracydpupp, u can manually edit and insert ur windows partition03:30
u2popmy another pc yes but is 9.0403:30
sebsebsebu2pop: well in that case  get yourself an 8.10 or 9.04  CD and install that03:30
n2diychrisn2323: ok, do I need to check with my isp about this, I'm not sure if I need DHCP or not?03:31
u2popso i want to install to my laptop03:31
BookmanMine says Playing 0:00 (Streaming)03:31
sebsebsebu2pop: did you ever do 8.10?03:31
MrPiracydpupp, it has some samples in the file, u can just uncomment them03:31
Bookmangogeta: sorry....Mine says Playing 0:00 (Streaming)03:31
chrisn2323n2diy is this on your lan?03:31
sebsebsebu2pop: ok well makes sense to have one with 9.04   for now and the other with 8.10,  and then  clean install both once 9.10 is out03:31
dpuppMrPiracy, i tried uncommenting them but it gives an error when i try selecting the option at boot time.03:31
dpuppMrPiracy, do i need to move the uncommented text to the very bottom of the file?03:32
MrPiracydpupp, u probably didnt put the right parameters, can u pastebin ur menu.lst file?03:32
dpuppactually fighting to get my system online as well... but first i want to fix os.03:32
dpuppMrPiracy,  actually fighting to get my system online as well... but first i want to fix os.03:32
MrPiracydpupp, if u move it to the bottom, it will appear last03:32
n2diychrisn2323: yes, a cable modem connected to a four port wireless router.03:32
u2popwhere can i download the 8.10 ?03:32
chrisn2323then dont contact your isp n2diy03:33
chrisn2323log into your router03:33
bruenigu2pop: you can always dist-upgrade03:33
sebsebsebu2pop: i'll get you the link, also before burning the ISO you should md5sum the CD03:33
chrisn2323set a static ip for your computer03:33
chrisn2323port forward necessary ports03:33
sebsebsebbruenig: he dosan't have Ubuntu on the computer he is installing on yet03:33
u2popmd5sum for what?03:33
ShawncHello, can someone help me please? I get this error when ever I try to apt-get install stuff (http://pastebin.ca/1499686), then when I do the apt-get -f install like it says I get an error too (http://pastebin.ca/1499685), What can I do to fix this?03:33
chrisn2323then configure your linux box03:33
chrisn2323to use static and not dhcp03:33
MrPiracydpupp, opitionally u can install windows drivers to access ur linux partition and edit the file from windows where u have internet access03:33

sebsebsebu2pop: if you want to upgrade the 8.10  to 9.04 later you can, but  I think great idea to have 8.10 on one  and 9.04 on the other,  and as I already said clean install both once 9.10 is out03:33
deweyI asked this a few nights ago and didnt get an answer. I just installed ubuntu 9.04 and the keyboard/mouse works fine but as soon as i 'startx' neither are responsive. what could cause this ?03:34
bthompso1arand: now what03:34
dpuppMrPiracy, i get error 13: invalid or unsupported executabke format.. press any key.03:34
bruenigu2pop: should probably get both on the latest version03:34

u2popk fine03:34
MrPiracydpupp, what r u trying to do?03:34
sebsebsebbruenig: I disagree, since 8.10 is better than 9.04 in certain ways :)03:34
dpuppi put the example at the start of where all the other boot options show... uncommended. and just rebooted. nothing else edited.03:35
n2diychrisn2323: ok, this sounds like a project that shouldn't be tackled at this time of night, thanks for the info.03:35
u2popand what happens with 9.04 ?03:35
dpuppMrPiracy,  i put the example at the start of where all the other boot options show... uncommended. and just rebooted. nothing else edited.03:35
bruenigwell then, he has two different opinions03:35
sabily_i need editor python on ubuntu03:35
sebsebsebbruenig: and he can do a clean install of both computers  with Ubuntu 9.10 when that's out03:35
u2poptoo many bugs?03:35
ShawncHello, can someone help me please? I get this error when ever I try to apt-get install stuff (http://pastebin.ca/1499686), then when I do the apt-get -f install like it says I get an error too (http://pastebin.ca/1499685), What can I do to fix this?03:35
bruenigsebsebseb: clean installing in 3 months is obnoxious03:35
bruenigsebsebseb: who wants to go through and tinker and reconfigure everything in 3 months right after you have finished03:36
MrPiracydpupp, which window version? do you know the partition number it is?03:36
sebsebsebbruenig: no it's  a good thing to do since Ext4 is the default file system :)  better than Ext303:36
thiebaudebruenig: installing evething all over again03:36
gogetaBookman: strange enough vlc fails on me03:36
bruenigthiebaude: do what now03:36
dpuppMrPiracy, if i choose the second option, it loads linux fine... but nothing with windows yet. what are the 0,0 and 0,1 numbers for?03:36
gogetaBookman: just sits at wating for video03:37
MrPiracydpupp, the first number is the drive number (if you only have one drive, it will be hd003:37
MrPiracydpupp, the second is the partittion number03:37
Bookmangogeta: on this machine with the sound issue I do not have mozilla-plugin-vlc installed03:37
thiebaudebruenig: the bad thing about a clean install is installing evrything again for me03:37
bruenigthiebaude: yes indeed03:37
bruenigthiebaude: I agree03:37
u2popseb thanks03:37
thiebaudebut i've done many clean installs before03:38
sebsebsebu2pop: I'll be clear on something,  with Ubuntu it's not about what is the latest, it's about what is supported,   and  8.10 is still good and supported untill April next year on the desktop,  of course  you  will have 9.10 before that anyway I expect03:38
thiebaudeand dual boots03:38
MrPiracydpupp, lets say your first partitition is linux and ur second is windows .... then ur windows grub command should be root (hd0,1) ... "1" is because the partition numbering starts with 003:38
server_I have a big problem guys please help: I was trying to resize my harddrive with gui, then I guess I made a mistake in some configuration. when I start the PC grub was not working correctly. how can I can have my data back? I had 2 partiion in that machine xp and ubuntu 9.4. I have the ubuntu Cd inserted on the computer I just need instruction. Thank you in advance03:38
u2popthat right03:38
zenlunaticthiebaude, you can use synaptic to reload all your software on a clean ubuntu install03:38
MrPiracydpupp, in this case, ur linux partition is (hd0,0) and your windows partition is (hd0,1)03:38
dpuppMrPiracy, i will switch to 0,1 and reboot.03:38
thiebaudesebsebseb: support is a big deal, i agree03:38
zenlunaticthiebaude, msg me if you want me to teach you03:38

Shawncbruenig: I have asked my question 2 times, I think  I can say can someone help me.03:39

zenlunaticthiebaude, you know about "save markings" in synaptic?03:40
ShawncSo around 5 minutes ago.03:40
Bookmangogeta: No problem....03:40
jduserver_, so you can either try to reinstall grub from a livecd and/or copy of the files you want and reinstall; which do you prefer?03:40
thiebaudezenlunatic: no i haven't03:40

MrPiracydpupp, set a timer ... at the begining of the file it has a commented line for the timeout setting03:40
DasEiShawnc: heh, did you try an install, or an update ?03:40
thiebaudezenlunatic: and i've been using ubuntu for 4 yrs,lol03:40
server_jdu how can I do that can you help me please03:40
zenlunaticthiebaude, go to file->save markings then reinsall ubuntu and use that file it will install all packages on your wiped install to your new install03:41
sebsebsebu2pop: and  obviously you keep your data backed up and that, and  clean installing  Ubuntu  with 9.10,  won't be a big deal when it's time03:41
server_jdu I have live cd inserted what do I have to do at this point ?03:41
thiebaudezenlunatic: ok, thanks mate03:41
zenlunaticthiebaude, no need to do it manually03:41
MrPiracydpupp, hehe, but now u go straight to windows. i think u'll have to boot from the live cd and edit the file form it03:41
jduserver_, well, with regard to fixing the grub problem, I suggest finding an online tutorial.03:41
sebsebseb!md5sum >  u2pop03:41

MrPiracydpupp, apparently all u need is the timer now03:42
jduserver_, to get your files, you should simply use the file browser to mount the hard drive partitions and get what you want off of them to back up (assuming you have have another drive)03:42

arandserver_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto03:42
u2popthanks for your help sebsebseb03:42
sebsebsebu2pop: the codes need to be the same03:42
MrPiracydpupp, ohhh and dont forget to put the title before the windows boot commands ... each option needs a title03:42
sebsebsebu2pop: for a good ISO and np03:42
ShawncDasEi: What were you saying?03:43
thiebaudezenlunatic: so, when i clean install 9.10 i just go back into synaptic ?03:43
dpuppMrPiracy, how do i add the timer?03:43
thiebaudeafter saving03:43
DasEiShawnc: did you try an install, or an update ?03:43
u2popyes i read that on md5 site03:43
Bookmangogeta: hey, I just installed VLC plugin and it just started working.  Still says waiting for video, but playing sound just fine.03:43
zenlunaticthiebaude, yeah03:43
jduMisterK85, puppy linux?03:43
thiebaudegreat, i better save it now03:43
ShawncWhat do you mean?03:43
MisterK85jdu: whats the sys reqs?03:43
MrPiracydpupp, just add timeout1003:43
ShawncI tried an install like yesterday when I got that error first...03:43
zenlunaticthiebaude, not sure about configs though... like i don'[t know if you'll have to reconfig stuff03:43
MrPiracydpupp, at the begining of the file03:43
jduMisterK85, about that.  but it more user friendly than others with lower system requirements03:44
arandMisterK85: yes, ubuntu or any derivative will have a hard time on that one...03:44
sebsebsebu2pop: oh  another idea  you could do that Ubuntu 9.04  KDE 3  remix CD :)   then you  got the older and better KDE 3  on one computer,  and   Ubuntu's edited here and there Gnome on the other computer03:44
dpuppMrPiracy, time out 3 ... changing to 1003:44
Shawncapt-get install something or another, I can't remember dasei03:44
DasEiShawnc: in asking when that occurred , did you put any third party soft on ore is an update failed ?03:44
jduMisterK85, you don't want to use ubuntu for that.  You could try deli linux but it is a little harder to install and setup03:44
zenlunaticMisterK85, try #damnsmalllinux03:44
dpuppMrPiracy, ok, so now when the timer expires it goes to windows direct... unless i hit esc. how can i set it to go to linux direct if nothing is pressed?03:44
debac1ehow do I change default file associations? e.g. I want double-clicking xml files in nautilus to open in an editor rather than firefox03:44
thiebaudesebsebseb: he left, he said ubuntu coming soon,lol03:44
DasEiShawnc: jaunty ?03:44
jduMisterK85, I don't suggest damn small linux for someone who can 'blue screen a microwave'03:45
MrPiracydpupp, default   003:45
sebsebsebthiebaude: oh well, but long live KDE 3 :)03:45
MrPiracydpupp, again, 0 means the first option in ur file .... 1 for the next and so on03:45
dpuppMrPiracy,  default 0 is already there.03:45

DasEi!info findutils | Shawnc03:54
Shawncfindutils is already the newest version.03:54
arandserver_: problem probably is that grub cannot find the partition it was installed on, most likely the ubuntu partition, since it has been edited in some way... I think you need to reinstall grub in mbr (so that it points to the partition properly and may find the rest of the grub start data).03:54
ubottuShawnc: findutils (source: findutils): utilities for finding files--find, xargs. In component main, is required. Version 4.4.0-2ubuntu4 (jaunty), package size 376 kB, installed size 1528 kB03:54

arandserver_: I think I gave you the link before: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto ?03:57
kregDasEi, i disagree.   after the gui installed the updates, "apt-get upgrade" not longer reports held back packages.   There IS something else UpdateManager did that apt did not.03:57
dpuppporter1, thanks i will try that.03:57

DasEi Shawnc : as there no further infos about the circumstances, try to purge findutils and reinstall, you might have to d/l that package manually (correct version)03:58
DasEikreg : just the time ?03:58
ShawncWhat's the correct version I need? I'm new to ubuntu.03:59

porter1Yes, but it isn't going to hurt to not have access to /usr/games?04:02

tanathGnea, hrm. ati radeon 9800se06:12

Gneatanath: did you install a video driver for it?06:12
gabkdlly_Phill: try restarting metacity, alt+F2 -> metacity06:12
tanathGnea, default OS one worked fine. fglrx had issues, so haven't been using it06:13
Gneatanath: try checking your driver:  System->Administration->Hardware drivers06:13
tanathGnea, that shows nothing06:13
Phillgabkdlly_:alt F2 does nothing.06:13
tanathGnea, and fglrx doesn't seem to work06:13

DayOldPorridgeCould anyone help me out with a GRUB problem?  I'm trying to load a disk.img in Bochs with stage1 and stage2 of GRUB, but whenever I try 'kernel /home/user/kernel.bin' in GRUB, it gives me "Error 17: could not mount selected partition."  Any idea how I could fix this?06:19
Gneatanath: that's odd... but then, ATI has always had horrible linux support06:19
Phillgabkdlly_: I think it's a problem with my X config. I'm having resolution trouble as well.06:19
tanathGnea, yeah, but it worked fine for quite some time there, until recently. now i can barely read06:19

tanathGnea, and i can't get compiz running either06:20

DOSchildIs there a way to update synaptic's package list to show manually added repositories? I added the cdemu and virtualbox repository, but the programs are not there, they are only installable with apt-get06:20
Phillgabkdlly_: It happened before, in December, Slart and I debugged it all. It's my monitor, not able to tell X what resolution it should be. Now that I upgraded, I reformatted / and /etc/X11 aswell as my xorg.conf file went with it.06:21
PhillSo, I'm back at square one.06:21
tanathGnea, you try alsamixer in terminal?06:21

DOSchildis there a way to update the actual list of packages rather than the versions of the packages in synaptic? it seems that using the reload option only updated version of the packages inside the added repository06:24
tanathGnea, usb audio? is that right?06:24
Gneatanath: if i bring up audacious, I can select it and play music through it, but the volume is jacked up all the way06:24
Gneatanath: and that's only through the line-out jack, I don't have a 5.1 surround speaker system for it yet06:25
tanathGnea, audacious has different output plugins you can choose. figure out which ones work?06:25
DOSchildis there a way to update the actual list of packages rather than the versions of the packages in synaptic? it seems that using the reload option only updated version of the packages inside the added repository06:25
Gneatanath: I went with the alsa on that one, but I need to be able to change the volume - it has a physical knob on it that's supposed to do that, but it's not hardware-controlled06:25
tanathGnea, try 'sudo alsa force-reload' and see if you're able to then. you have pulse audio installed? it seems to cause issues and prolly shouldn't be used yet06:26

NeroonMrPiracy: well i dont use the comm line, but you put just compiz into the startup?06:33
NeroonMrPiracy: you might try fusion-icon there06:33
DOSchildmusikgoat|main, i use the reload button but virtualbox and cdemu still aren't coming up on synaptic06:33

NeroonMrPiracy: and it should remember when started, which window manager was used last06:34
tanathGnea, it's really frustrating06:34
MrPiracyNeroon: yes, just compiz and i had installed this fusion-icon thingy ... u think it would be it?06:34
Gneatanath: I can give it a go... this is my /proc/asound/cards: 1 [S51            ]: USB-Audio - SB X-Fi Surround 5.106:34
carpediemPhill: sorry, I couldn't resist.  Actually, look in /etc/X11/xorg.conf for ZAxisMapping, and switch the order of the numbers06:34
MrPiracyNeroon: i'll take it out of startup and see what happens06:34
carpediemTempus_Fugit: hi, doing pretty good06:34
musikgoat|mainDOSchild: what repositories do you have checked?06:34
NeroonMrPiracy: you could do it by compiz on itself, but if you're going to use fusion-icon anyway ...06:34

Tempus_Fugitanyone know what will read a .db file06:35
NeroonMrPiracy: I would put fusion-icon to startup06:35
carpediemTempus_Fugit: usually that's SQLite, but there's no guarantee06:35
MrPiracyNeroon: let me see, brb06:35
DOSchildmusikgoat|main, I have the two default ones checked, the updated Wine repository, the updated Virtualbox Repository, and the cdemu repository06:35
Tempus_Fugityeah i tried that and didnt work06:35
carpediemTempus_Fugit: if it is SQLite, there's a SQLite browser for firefox that works pretty good.06:36
tanathGnea, you don't have any funky audio/sound settings in the bios do you?06:36
carpediemTempus_Fugit: it could be anything, could you give some context?06:36
Tempus_Fugithmmmm ok will check into that ty06:36
Gneatanath: have you read this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver06:36

gletobAnd thanks to the others that mad suggestions!06:37
DulakIf you want to use usb or 3d acceleration, download the deb or use the repo vbox provides06:37
MrPiracyNeroon: yes, i think it was fusion-icon causing it06:37
carpediemDulak: well, it's far from crappy, it just lacks a few features that Sun doesn't open-source06:38
MrPiracyNeroon: it booted up fine no probs this time06:38
NeroonMrPiracy: So you took it out?06:38
Tempus_Fugitok well right now im on my tmobile G1 in an app ported into firc and we have an app that backs up sms msgs  and i was trying to read them with my laptop connected to my phone and the backup file is .db06:38

NeroonMrPiracy: Thanks, but no thanks ;-)06:53
ftabMrPiracy: that command is to change the root password being a sudoer06:53
DulakMrPiracy: don't advise people to set a root password, use sudo -i to get a root shell if you have to have one06:53
ftabDulak: some times you might need that for security06:53
MrPiracyftab: that will also let you login as root06:54
Dulakftab: what security is better without an audit trail?  I haven't had root enabled on a machine in 10 years now, and I can't think of any good reason to start.06:54
ftabMrPiracy: yes but passwd command is specific for changing the paddword06:54
vlad__thanks for the sudo -i saves time06:54
MrPiracyDulak: there was a guy here asking how to disable "uac", that's why i came up with this ... i think these "type password" boxes all the time are annoying06:54
NeroonMrPiracy: Then you can still start a root shell06:55
ftabDulak, you are right but if you are a sudoer then you are root, sudoer user id points to that of the root uid06:55
DulakMrPiracy: you can change the timeout on the password from sudo so it only prompts you every so often after the initial one06:55
MrPiracyftab: type that command, enable "allow admin login" in system / administration / login window / security06:55
tehbauthow do I get to the partition manager?06:55

MrPiracypicochu, Neroon, Dulak, ftab: why are u guys so scared about this root account in the first place?06:57
DigitalKiwiroot passwords are alays short, like admin, nimda, god, iamgod, you know, therefor security risk06:57
Neroonpicochu: There is just no need for a root account. Everything can be done without it. And installing one just makes it easier breaking into06:58
Dulakftab: and sudo logs every command run, so you can see exactly who just messed up your box06:58
MrPiracypicochu, Neroon, Dulak, ftab: what hole exactly does it open?06:58
picochuMrPiracy:  not me06:58
ftabMrPiracy, we are not scared, but just from security point of view there is an alternate06:58
Dulakftab: allowing a direct root login, no log.  Who just typed that command???  I don't know, cuz I enabled root.06:58
picochuNeroon: obviously you have never tried install Oracle 11 on a linux box06:58
MrPiracyftab: define "security point" ... what happens if root password is set?06:58
Trombonewhy do u want to enable root anyways? what are the benefits?06:58
NeroonMrPiracy: Without one, an attacker at least doesnt know which account to use06:58
ftabDualk, we agree but it's MrPiracy who don't :-)06:58
Dulakpicochu: you can sudo -i to get the root shell and install oracle just fine06:59
MrPiracypicochu: yessssssssssss! now i remember why i needed that ... ORACLE 1106:59
tehbautso why is 8.04 missing that top-right-corner "tray"?06:59
ftabDualk, I was just differenciating the sudoers and the root06:59
vphDoes anyone know why my Ubuntu boot-disk will loadup the install prompt but it has an I/O error "Error reading boot CD" when I try to install it? I guess it is because the CDRom is not identified but would that be the only reason? any help would be appreciated :)06:59
ftabtehbaut: did you tried gparted?06:59
sebsebsebtehbaut: ,because it's a resonably new thing, also  Ubuntu's version isn't even part of upstream Gnome,   which is also why shut down and logout get removed from the system menu :(,  really it's only meant to be a user switcher07:00
tehbautftab, it's not in the list of apps (or else I'm blind, or it requires a terminal window, or an install)07:00
Trombonevph: what happens if you choose to scan the disc for errors instead of install?07:00
MrPiracyNeroon: account to use where??? if this attacker can get to my root account, why cant he get to my user account?07:00
picochuthere's nothing wrong with root if you know what you are doing.... sudo is just as risky as su07:00
genannothing will happen07:00
ftabtehbaut which version are you using?07:00
vphTrombone: Error reading boot CD.07:00
tehbautsebsebseb, so the tray is part of 8.10 but not 8.04?07:00
ftabtehbaut try sudo apt-get install gparted07:00
tehbautftab, I'm running 8.04 right now07:01
sebsebsebtehbaut: did you mean the log out and shutdown thing?07:01
sebsebsebtehbaut: if you mean the applicaitons tray,  there should be something07:01
Trombonevph: maybe the disc is damaged and you need a new one? or somethings wrong with your hardware07:01
NeroonMrPiracy: Every attacker tries to get to the root account. But how would he know, which, if any account on a pc might get root rights07:01
MrPiracypicochu: even if u DONT know what ur doing. There are several newbies using ubuntu who has no clue of where to click or what to install07:01
ftaband also when you enable the User switcher menu in Jaunty it removes the shut down from the menu07:01
tehbautsebsebseb, uh all I can remember is that it had a network status and quick-connect for wifi07:01
ftabtehbaut then run sudo apt-get install gparted07:01
MrPiracyNeroon: how will the attacker know i am running linux? i have 4 different OS'es here07:01
sebsebsebtehbaut: ok  we weren't talking about  the same thing,   the only thing we were talking about that was the same, is top right  corner of  the panel07:01
tehbautftab, is it available by default it 8.10?07:01
MrPiracyNeroon: anti-virus AND firewall07:02
ftabtehbaut which thing?07:02
DigitalKiwiirc clients often use the user name as...username07:02
vphTrombone: I've made 3 coasters so far... do you think if I swapped a cdrom with a different computer it would solve the problem? because I have a dvdrom that could be switched easily.07:02
tehbautsebsebseb, so I'm looking for the "system tray" ...is that right?07:02
sebsebsebtehbaut: yep, and not the other thing,  which I hope is missing still in 8.04 :)07:02
tehbautftab, a partition manager included by default in 8.10 ...is that true?07:02
ftabtehbatu system tray in Ubuntu is called Notification Icons07:02
picochuMrPiracy: remote root login is something i won't recommend07:02
DigitalKiwiso someone comes to irc there's a good chance I know their user account ;D07:02
ftabhmm not sure.07:02
vphTrombone: and with the three coasters they all did the same thing.07:02
Erekosevph:  what burn speed did you burn them at07:03
NeroonMrPiracy: If it only where that easy to stop an intruder07:03
MrPiracypicochu: whoaa, that's something different07:03
sebsebsebtehbaut: you should be able to add stuff to the panel07:03
ftabsudo apt-get install will prompt if that is already there tehbaut07:03
Trombonevph: its worth a try. if you get an error when using a brand new disk that you made yourself just a minute ago, u almost definitely have a hardware error somewhere07:03
tehbautsebsebseb, so the notification icons were added with 8.10?07:03
sebsebsebtehbaut: which notification icons?07:03
DulakMrPiracy: you are speaking from obvious years of experience running enterprise servers in production.07:03
sebsebsebtehbaut: 8.10 is a good release07:03
tehbautsebsebseb, , I'm not seeing any notification area at all in 8.0407:03
MrPiracypicochu, Neroon, Dulak, ftab: besides, what would an attacker do with root account that he can't with my user account (which happens to be admin)?07:04
TromboneMrPiracy: do u have a particular reason for using a root account? its actually one less command if you just use sudo07:04
sebsebsebtehbaut: sadly 8.10 isn't LTS,  if you run the  panel resting command that can solve stuff07:04
tehbautI had 8.10 before, but had to drop it for a while07:04
sebsebsebtehbaut: why?07:04
MrPiracyDulak: this is a home computer, not an enterprise07:04
DulakMrPiracy: root is a known attack vector, your username is not07:04
tehbauthard drive changes, I wasn't using ubuntu for a while07:04
sebsebseb!panels |  tehbaut07:05
ubottutehbaut: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »07:05
MrPiracyDulak: alright, alright, u win07:05
DulakMrPiracy: but you're advocating anyone to use your crappy security policy by telling people to enable root on their machine, you are not qualified to do that.  You can do it for YOURSELF, but don't spread your ignorance to others.07:05
tanathmy bottom gnome-panel isn't showing. and if i run 'gnome-panel --replace' then certain icons don't show in notification area anymore :-/07:05
TromboneMrPiracy: bottom line, there are thousands of developers out there who made the root account innactive by default, and at least a few of them were smarter than you07:05
ftabMrPiacy, as a general rule of thumb, there are some kernel level calls which root can perform, I mean root has got the access for each and every thing from deleting the files to changing the config without any further authentication07:05
sebsebsebtehbaut: run the command the bot gave, that should help07:05
ftabthat's why root is always discouraged07:05
NeroonMrPiracy: He needs to find an account that even may get root rights. Since not every account should be able to. But isnt it easier, when I know there is a root account i can concentrate on, instead of having to find the names of the other account and trie those?07:05
sebsebsebtanath: uh  see abovee07:05
tehbautftab, so you are saying that gparted is used during installation, but after that it's not included in the standard utilities/apps by default?07:05
MenZatehbaut→ Correct.07:06
sebsebseb!panels |   tanath07:06
ubottutanath: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »07:06
ftabtehbaut, try gparted in terminal07:06
tehbautMenZa, correct re: gparted?07:06
tanathsebsebseb, which defaults are those? i'm not sure i want to07:06
ftabMenza that's not correct07:06
picochuTrombone:  just disable remote root07:06
sebsebsebtanath: it will reset your panels back to default07:06
tanathsebsebseb, i have a number of icons & applets i don't want to replace07:06
MenZatehbaut→ Yes. A simple sudo apt-get install gparted should install it.07:06
sebsebsebtanath: you can add the bottom panel back anyway07:07
MrPiracyDulak, Trombone: easy fellows, i agree the root account unset is more secure. i just dont see the whole point of having it kept that way in a HOME environment when enabling it would be much less annoying and easier07:07
tanathsebsebseb, i'm not willing to do that without knowing what it'll do. it would be tedious to redo my customizations07:07
DigitalKiwihmm, can you create a user called root with no privs?07:07
NeroonMrPiracy: How do you think, that makes it easier?07:07
Erekosetrying to install an unzipped tar file but don`t seem to have the right comand07:07
sebsebsebtanath: it will undone your customizations07:07
tanathsebsebseb, then that's not something i want to do07:08
tehbautoff topic: how do I force a ntfs part to mount if the ntfs part is marked to be in use (windows didn't shutdown correctly)07:08
MrPiracyNeroon: for those who just want to try ubuntu, yes ... no need to keep typing the same password over and over again07:08
musikgoat|mainErekose: is the file extension simply .tar or .tar.gz or .tgz ?07:08
sebsebsebtehbaut: that's not off topic07:08
sebsebsebtehbaut: there's some sort of command, but you can also boot up Windows again and shut it down properly07:08
aamir((((((( hello Room ))))))07:08
tehbautsebsebseb, meant off topic from my latest topics :P07:08
iwobblesdoes ubuntu support usb drives ? Ive found the mounting a bit troublesome07:08
MrPiracyNeroon: i know you will have a heart attach but turning off UAC is the first thing i do when i install windows at home07:08
NeroonMrPiracy: So you want to start x and being online as root?07:08
Restinpeacei just installed ubuntu yesterday07:08
tanathsebsebseb, and i already said i didn't want to run 'gnome-panel --replace' which reloads it, and you're telling me to kill it? >.<07:08
MrPiracyNeroon: in a home testing environment yes, why not?07:09
picochuguys just remember active root is a matter of choice.. AIX, Solaris, Debian, RH, IRIX, they all have root accounts07:09
Restinpeacecan anyone tell me how do i install C++ ?07:09
tehbautsebsebseb, yes I just need to move a couple files to that part07:09
sebsebsebtanath: you  can  add a panel back without running a command07:09
MrPiracypicochu: even ubuntu does07:09
tehbautbefore I reboot windows, ideally07:09
picochuMrPiracy: not enabled by default07:09
MenZaRestinpeace→ What do you mean? C++ is a programming language.07:09
MrPiracypicochu: but it DOES have one ;)07:09
Erekosemusikgoat|main: its .tar.gz07:09
NeroonMrPiracy: Because one false click might kill everything.07:10
DigitalKiwiI'm guessing he wants to install gcc07:10
tehbautMenZa, what irc app are you using? j/w07:10
RestinpeaceMenZa: yes i agree. I mean how do i install the app?07:10
musikgoat|mainErekose: tar xzvf file.tar.gz07:10
MenZaWhat app, Restinpeace?07:10
tanathsebsebseb, if i reload gnome-panel, there's an icon or two that'll no longer show in the notification area. if i reset panels to default, i may lose all the icons i've added to the top panel, and which applets i've added07:10
MenZaRestinpeace→ You mean a C++ compiler? An editor? An IDE?07:10
RestinpeaceMenZa:  anjuta? if i'm not mistaken.07:10
NeroonMrPiracy: And where do you think the whining would start first, after they lost all their data?07:10
RestinpeaceMenZa:  yes07:10
sebsebsebtanath: yes07:10
EnragedOstrichCan someone help me fix my gamepad? It's going all strange when I try to use VGA and ePSXe07:10

NeroonMrPiracy: No, you just could start a root shell for example07:15
musikgoat|mainErekose: ahh, then "make&&sudo make install" should work07:15
Dulakpicochu: ok let me rephrase that, the guys I work with that know what they are actually doing do it as well.  The ones who have no clue (apparently like you) don't.  And it's always fun times when those dumbasses go to the bathroom and leave a root shell logged in.07:15

nsadminAlvinware it's pretty obvious that I don't know the specific sites, but then I don't have to because google indexes them08:41
^cheekyroflparrot, sorry to bother , but are you using synergy to do that with your system ?08:41
durtAlvinware, majority of hardware is supported automatically, so If you have an exception it would be best to go to the OEM's website08:41
Slartw0jrl: are you sure you upgraded? in jaunty you just install 3.5, and keep the older one08:41

SlartXodiac13: if you can't delete the folder using the normal ways it might be owned by root.. you can use sudo in a terminal... or use "gksudo nautilus" to get a root file explorer window thingy... but please be very careful with that window.. things can go very bad very quickly08:45

roflparrota yeah i still have XP on a separate HDD08:51
adon't do it08:51
Slarta: I would say that thread is about a broken motherboard or a broken design of a motherboard... I wouldn't go around telling people that "linux can break you nic"08:51

roflparrotI also have a great persistent install on a USB drive08:54
losherbonko56: that's how it should work. So what's different about this machine? Yes, it's a lowercase L in the fdisk command....08:54
roflparrotI was just chinwagging really, Slart. But then i got trolled08:54

bonko56losher I dunno its got me tearing my hair out lol some machines it just mounts, the machine on which it wont load is an IBM laptop an old P3 machine08:55
xray7224i know a bit about wireless08:55
xray7224not a lot08:56
xray7224but a bit08:56
roflparrotYou should connect to a router with a patch cable and see if it still works08:56
Slartroflparrot: search for error messages in the syslog, kern.log and so on08:56
roflparrotthat sounds like fun, Slart08:56
defryskwireless does not work on kde4 for me so I use wicd , that works fine08:56
xray7224look in dmesg08:56
=== MadMax is now known as Guest84385
losherbonko56: I wonder if the fact that it's old hardware means there something different about the usb ports. version 1.1 vs. 2.0?08:57

OttifantSirAny reason why I can't mount NFS shares on machines I have explicitly allowed access to them? When I try to mount them, all I get is an error message saying "mount.nfsd failed to mount share" (or very similar. Lost my net for a few hours, and resorted to SAMBA :-( in the meantime)08:57
defryskxray7224, i see08:57
bonko56yes its a v1 usb port, I also cant read it on a machine with usb2 though08:58
xray7224defrysk: my advice isnt ideal id say make a network script using ifconfig dhcpcd and iwconfig08:58
xray7224but like i said its not ideal08:58
losherbonko56: but there are other machines on which it *is* readable?08:58
Alvinware1is it a hard prob for v1 v2 usb or soft?08:58
defryskxray7224, using wicd is ideal for me :)08:59
xray7224oki :)08:59
bonko56losher yes it works fine on a win box and on two other ubuntu boxes08:59
losherbonko56: well back to where we were before you rebooted, what does dmesg say about it? Same as last time i.e. device sdc ?09:01
losherOttifantSir: can you run rpcinfo -p <server> on the client?09:02
OttifantSirlosher: Did a paste here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/221741/ (This is from my laptop on a wireless, but the exact same message came for the exact equally allowed media-PC on wired network.09:05

OttifantSirlosher: Actually, the media-PC won't give a readout now. It has connectivity to the server, I know because I am watching a TV-show from it. Try to close it and try again09:09
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about shiretoko09:10
losherOttifantSir: what is 'won't give a readout now' supposed to mean, exactly ?09:11
Techieanyone got a suggestion on how to easily go about syncing mp3's from a samba share to a folder on a Xubuntu box?09:11
OttifantSirlosher: Closed the "feed" from the server, but still no output on the media-PC. Strange, as it's connected via gigabit network. "rpcinfo -p <server>" just hangs.09:11

biopytehi. how can i completely remove any text including whitespace from below the desktop icons in gnome?09:17
Slartpurefusion2: no idea09:17
OttifantSirlosher: NFS has worked every other time I have set it up. Except the time when I did a fresh install with NIS and NIS was broken from source. Every other time I have followed the HOWTO, and it's worked. Sometimes a reboot of the server was required, but I have done that too.09:17
losherpurefusion2: I've had good luck putting disks into the freezer. If you return it to the manufacturer, don't mention that you iced it...:-)09:17
Techiebiopyte: why not go thw whole way and get rid of the icon aswell?09:17
losherOttifantSir: you sound defensive. Don't be, it's a legitimate debugging question. Can you login to the server and check that nfsd is running?\09:19
nsadminheffay: that would be a mixed dist, not recommended09:19
biopyteTechie, when there is a firefox icon theres is no point for a 'firefox" title below, right. the obvious way, renaming with a single whitespace, still leaves a ugly trace of the title bar.09:19
diddyIs there a way to turn on smooth scrolling in gedit?09:19

Techieshazzr: would have a clue, i was just using audacity as a troubleshooting tool09:28
losherbongo56: See this line -> [sdb] Attached SCSI removable disk. It means your usb drive appears as /dev/sdb. So try running 'sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdb'09:28

Slartbossekr: if your package is available through the repos you should be able to just search for it by name10:37
