sp219the "file" itself contains "<not supported>"00:09

censushqi think i got it00:11
censushqthanks everyone00:11
sebsebsebcensushq: you need to make a virtual hard disk, and  do dynaically expanding and put like 60GB as the size00:11
memiuxWhat can I do for reduce the number of childs of mysqld? like apache prefork or something00:12
nanotubesebsebseb: hah, 60gb, my whole hd is 40gb! my winxp vbox lives in an 8gb file. ;)00:12
sebsebsebnanotube: dynamically expanding,  meaning the psyical  virtual hard disk is only like 5GB by default it if   XP SP300:13
nanotubesebsebseb: so 60g is "max" eh?00:13
sebsebsebnanotube: the vm thinks it has 60GB,  and can even go up to that size, if there's enough space on the psyical partition00:13
sebsebsebnanotube: no 2TB  you can do for a  dynamically expanding VM00:13
sebsebsebnanotube: ,but who has a 2TB hard disk?  hardly anyone?00:13
nanotubesebsebseb: i mean, when you set an expanding 60gb partition, 60gb is max00:13
nanotubenot that it's the absolute max00:13
sebsebsebnanotube: yes  60gb is the size  and that's that00:14
qbrixWhat package is the default sound recorder?00:14
edbiannanotube: sebsebseb:  Then 60GB is how much XP thinks it has00:14
edbianqbrix: "gnome-sound-recorder"00:14

qbrixand to that I'm getting: Unable to locate package gnome-sound-recorder00:15
nanotubesebsebseb: ah i see. pretty neat. is it possible to "convert" a vm that's set for a fixed 8gb size to a 'dynamically expanding' vm?00:17

akathanks, I will do some reading00:23
mezquitaleaka,  i suggest you try first without encryption, after you successfully login and can use the internet then enable encryption, dont broadcast your SSID00:23

bastidrazorCevan, system>admin>hardware drivers00:24
mezquitaleaka,  you want to troubleshoot it one step at a time, disable encryption first just to make sure the devices are compatible with each other, dont broadcast the SSID00:24
nanotubesebsebseb: by "convert" i mean "opened it up with virtualbox, and installed the virtualbox guest tools on it"00:24
akamezquitale: I fully understand your logic and usually would do that but I don't have access to the router for the next 10 days :\00:24

buckybob__:  run nvidia-xconfig to get some screens in your xorg.conf00:24
akas00:24
Cevanbastidrazor, I've checked even after installing drivers and there's nothing in that window.00:25
bastidrazorCevan, you could try  xserver-xorg-video-radeonhd package..00:25
sebsebsebnanotube: ok00:25
mezquitaleaka, ok so whenever youre in front of the router you can come back and ask for help, I had the same problem with an old laptop, turns out encryption wasn't supported in linux for that old card,  encryption worked fine with windows though00:26
nanotubesebsebseb: i don't really use it much at all, and i have a couple gigs of free space in that partition, so i thought "hey, this dynamic thing sounds pretty nice - maybe i can shave off 2gb of disk usage" :)00:26
bob__bucky tried that, 320x240 640x480 are the only res it offers, and I can't see a way to manually enter a higher resolution00:26
sebsebsebnanotube: yep that's the whole idea,   to save psyical hard disk space, you use dynamically expanding00:27

Hillshumgbear14275, I think right clicking on the panel and clicking some "preferences" option or something will do the trick (not in front of gnome myself atm)01:00

buckybob__: i had to try different versions until i got one to work right... try installing nvidia-glx-71 and work up untill you find one that works.. that's not a very new card and you're using the latest driver which isn't always good01:03
gbear14275... Don't think so... but thats ok01:03
TheNewGuyOK, For the PROS out there helping people.  IF someone comes on and says that after installing linux in a dual boot system, the computer will not log on to the net under window's, they have a valid issue.  The only fix right now is to hard shut down of linux.  Then the windows connection will work.  Linux turns off the nic card when it shuts down.  Windows does not and assumes the nic card is on.  been going on since 2007.  This01:03
TheNewGuy does not happen with all nic cards.01:03
gbear14275thank you VCoolio01:03

nanotubesebsebseb: well, in case you are curious: it is possible to convert disk images with "vboxmanage clonehd"01:04
Cevanbastidrazor, they were actually Nvidia drivers. Long story, don't want to explain why I'm using ATI now.01:05

giaco_hello, I've a big big tremendous crash / bug in my ubuntu 9.04. EVERYTIME I open a video ( mplayer, vlc, totem or even inside the browser ) the screen turns black, the system become unresponsive, CTRL-ALT-CANC is not working and even consoles on CTRL-ALT-F<x> are no more responsive. The only thing that keeps working seems to be the acpi module because if I press the physical shut down button the system goes down after the shut down proces01:06
giaco_s ( I can hear it working )01:06
CQScan someone tlel me how to uninstall crossover?01:06
bob__bucky it's a legacy driver for a legacy card, and the quadro series is the pro/CAD series cards01:07
bob__bucky and its the one that the driver manager recomended. as far as performance goes it wrks, its just the resolution01:07
jeffwheelerSomething about how Ubuntu is mounting my root fs is broken, because all the init processes fail due to it being mounted as ro.01:08
rambo298giaco can you get to text mode with Alt-F2?01:08
jeffwheelerThe fs itself appears clean, and /etc/fstab seems correct, too01:08
giaco_rambo298, no01:08

ervin067Hi, I am having problems gettin sound to come through my laptop speakers. If I plug headphones in I get sound. I am running Ubuntu 9.04 on a P-6860fx laptop. Any help would be appreciated01:12
rambo298upgrading to 9.04 was very painful for me with my nvidia controller01:12
buckyme too rambo29801:12
bob__bucky using xubuntu with just the to current updates01:12
Cevanbastidrazor, Got the window open, and I can make changes... it won't "test" with anything related to Radeon, however.01:13
rambo298i got real good with xorg.conf changes01:13
Guest79656ervin067:  this may seem stupid, but have you checked the volume control for your front speakers?01:13
PelleTutI'm trying to make a bootable usb stick with windows 7 from ubuntu. any ideas how to do this?01:13
chrissharp123Guest79656: I was about to suggest that :-)01:13
rambo298i understand shuttleworth's position on eulas but it hurts when someone with such market share like nvidia won't do open source GPL drivers01:13
ervin067I have checked all the volume controls I can find01:13
ervin067I dont think my laptop speakers have any external on/off switch01:14
ervin067I've been messin with this for about an hour and been unsuccessfull01:14
giaco_rambo298, as I said previously switching to console is not working, have you read that?01:14
kpkeerthiervin067: right-click on the speaker icon (near system tray) -> volume control and ensure the volume levels for the speakers are OK01:14
kpkeerthiand not muted01:14
Guest79656ervin067:  there is a specific feature in "vloume control" for muting and/or adjusting the volume on your front speakers specifically01:15
rambo298giaco yeah sorry ... if you can't switch then you are dead ... i had display issues with 9.04 but was always able to switch to text mode out of gdm ... what is your display controller?01:15
purplenurpleI'm having trouble with my sound.  I'm hearing buzzes and pops behind the music.  anyone able to help?01:15

hdoni assumed it could not possibly be an ubuntu problem01:16
purplenurplehdon, not sure ... I've been googling around trying a few things ... not sure why I have 3 separate controls for my audio01:16
hdonpurplenurple: your hardware's audio capabilities are probably more complicated than you realize01:16
Guest79656ervin067:  Hate to harp on this, but also if you scroll to the right within volume control there is also a slider for "PC Speakers"01:16

rambo298bucky: nvidia released new drivers for their GeForce devices on July 1 because of Linux ... that's what I ended up using, along with xorg.conf changes01:20
ervin067I was following a website's fix to this issue, and installed Pulseaudio, I dont know if that would make a difference to you guys01:20
purplenurplehdon, we'll not perfect but the clicks and pops always seem to appear several days after a fresh install01:20
bastidrazorCevan, everything i'm finding is poor support in 8.04 for your card. that page is probably the best route to go.01:20

wydoe and says i can replace * with one of the hostnames formats.  What do they mean one of the hostname formats and what does the (ro,sync,no_root_squash) mean?  I don't have that part in my configuration file.01:23

BlueLotuswhats up linux freaks01:29
donavan_cevan ... yeah im using 9.04 now but the auto upgrade from 8.10 did something evil to the drivers for ATI and no amount on reinstalling the drivers seemed to help ... had something to do with the conf file and the way the new kernel used the drivers01:29

jdud0wn3r, yeah, use the option that disables the gui, it will work fine after that03:16
jdud0wn3r, isn't that a server side problem?03:16
d0wn3rjdu, might be.. i dont understand what the problem is03:17

SealVadrian_2002ca, the easy way and the slily harder way03:17
d0wn3rdanbhfive, yes, i think so.03:17
RocketLauncherlol Jcn03:17
adrian_2002caSealV: ok, im listening03:18
d0wn3rsebsebseb, i know.. when i installed safari in vmware the page still doesnt recognize that im using safari03:18
SealVadrian_2002ca, the easy way if your theme allows it (try this first)03:18
jdud0wn3r, at any rate, it's as simple as running the ies4linux installer it with the no gui option03:18
Jcnwhat do I do now?03:18

byteme_lol, the older version is all I will use03:20
sebsebsebbyteme_: and you can add a repo  into  Ubuntu 9.0403:20
sebsebsebbyteme_: oh your already using KDE 3?03:20
SealVadrian_2002ca,  that will work for all themes. the more you know right03:21
adrian_2002caSealV: i thought i had to do that in the first place, so this is nice03:21
RocketLauncherctmjr I did look and I tried doing something like this: sudo aticonfig –initial=dual-head –screen-layout=right (Not exactly this) and it still doesnt work03:21

sebsebsebbyteme_: well a lot of  the apps get better in KDE 4,   but  as a GUI,  no thanks03:21
RocketLauncherctmjr I did it before I restarted after installing fglrx, could that be why?03:21

TheNewGuypatric, I am having an issue with a dual boot system.  according to the chat boards linux turns off the nic card when it shuts down.  Microsoft assume the nic card is running therefore does not turn it on.  so the only way to get my nic card to work with windows in my dual boot system03:29

ubottubyteme_, please see my private message03:29
Patric3TheNewGuy: Oh - so you have some WinTel only device ?03:30
TheNewGuyis to shut down with the reset button.. hard shut down. and then the nic card will stay on and will work with windows.03:30

sebsebsebfosa: ah ok03:33
d0wn3rsebsebseb, that error was very nondescript.. but makes sense..\03:33

sebsebsebd0wn3r: and with the correct useragent of course03:34
edbianTheNewGuy: (please begin with my name.  My clients highlight what you say for me if you do).  I suggest finding out what module your nic uses and removing it via modprobe before you restart.  I had a similar problem.03:34
TheNewGuyEdbian yes it says cable unplugged in windows.  linux works fine.03:34

ctmjrJcn: then reboot03:35
edbianTheNewGuy: Let me get this straight.  If you soft shutdown from linux and then boot windows your network card doesn't work.  Is this correct?  If you hard reset and then boot windows (or linux) everything works fine.  Is this correct?03:36

TheNewGuyedbian  I want to be clear, If i am in linux and shut down normaly, Soft, then linux will work fine when I reboot linux.  But if i boot into windows, it will tell me the cable is unplugged.  if I do the same with a hard reset, linux will work and windows will work.03:38

d0wn3rsebsebseb, whatever, i dont care .. ie7 is horrible when i use it on my friends machine03:40
sebsebsebd0wn3r: there wasn't even going to be an IE7  for   XP, but then  Firefox  started gaining quite a lot of the market, as a result  Mozilla have an internal joke "Internet Explorer 7 the best browser we ever made"03:40
d0wn3rsebsebseb, then again.. i am completely against vista as well03:41

Jcnctmjr:  i did the purge command, should I also do the dpkg command before rebooting, or just reboot03:46
edbianTheNewGuy: It "removes" the module from the kernel.  Like uninstall the driver in windows speak.  When you reboot (into linux) it will be like it never happened because linux will re-probe your hardware and re-insert the module.03:46
ctmjrJcn: you should be able to reboot but run it just to make sure then reboot if it does not work there is a couple other things to try03:47
TheNewGuyedbian, are you sure it will reload the module?  if there is anychance that the system will assume I don't want it loaded.... I will be stuck with windows.03:48
simple_j #startups03:48
edbianTheNewGuy: The command to load the module manually is: "sudo modprobe <modulename>"   (It's the same but missing the -r)03:48
edbianTheNewGuy: You can remove it and then insert it right now without restarting just to watch it appear and disappear in the nm-applet.03:49

edbianTheNewGuy: "sudo modprobe atl2"  no space, no capitals.  I'm assuming BTW that's it's an L and not a 103:52
Picisystest: not off hand, but take a look at the manpage for motd.tail , I believe it describes what scripts control the creation of the motd.03:53

Pidgin_twig11: you can delete the /dev/sda6 partition04:28
twig11Pidgin_: I don't really want to stop in the middle of the installation. Did you read what I posted before? I'm booted into the desktop cd, at the Prepare Partitions screen in the graphical installer. I would have to reboot to do something on my desktop and I don't even know if that's safe.04:28
edbianTheNewGuy_:I'm out of ideas! :(04:28
twig11Pidgin_: That would delete my home folder right?04:28
Pidgin_twig11: yes04:28
chris-dowleis there a way to recover my system, or do i have to reinstall ubuntu04:28
giikerjrib: tried awk and I think it works... yeah! Iḿ checking if it broke anything else!04:29
Pidgin_twig11: if you select a partition as / (root) than it will contain the /home directory ,why do you want to create seperate /home directory in making another partition ?04:29
twig11Pidgin_: I don't understand why you keep telling me that then. I said I want an explanation of how to reinstall WITHOUT deleting my home folder. Please don't offer advice on how to do something I'm not trying to do.04:29
TheNewGuy_edbian.  I want to make sure I did everything right...   I was supposed to run the command to un install the module and then do a soft shut down.  right?04:30
edbianTheNewGuy_: Yeah.  It solved a similar problem I had.04:30
mechtechthenewguy:  what is a soft shutdown?04:30
Pidgin_twig11: i think you are creating needless extra /home directory in /dev/sda604:30
=== Void is now known as vo|d
TheNewGuy_mechtech just a normal shut down04:31
TheNewGuy_edbian, ok, well thanks for you help.  I learn a bunch.  so that is good.04:31
Pidgin_twig11: if you select a partition as root ("/ ") then it will automatically contain the /home directory04:31
d1gitalhey all, i have searched the forums and done much googling, tried many reported fixes, and am still having the same issue:  my sound simply does not work.  no errors, card is detected, things seem to play.. but there is no sound.  jaunty fresh install on hp dv6 laptop.04:31
mechtechthenewguy: so, a hard shutdown would be holding the power button until the machine powers off?04:31
twig11Pidgin_: I put home on a separate partition precisely so I wouldn't have to import my data again if I reinstalled. Now I'm ready to reinstall and I'm not sure how to do that while leaving /dev/sda6 intact. could you just explain what I want to know instead of telling me what I'm doing is needless?04:31
TheNewGuy_is anyone a pro at nic cards and how they work with the operating system?04:32
dotblankd1gital: is the pcm volume all the way up?04:32

TheNewGuy_ok, when I run linux and do a normal shutdown and boot into windows, my nic card will not respond. I get the error, cable unplugged.  when I am in linux and do a hard shutdown, I can boot to windows and my nic card works.  any idea.04:33

rodsHowdy! Anyone had choppy issues with flash in ubuntu netbook remix? Seems that one fix is adding to mms.cfg, but I cannot find /etc/adobe05:20
illumin_8hmm to check open ports i could ' netstat -an | grep "LISTEN" ' but that only sees for the machine correct?05:21
gnrDreki:use sysctl if you need to change em' for good05:21
rhl6856gnea, wireless needs to connect...05:21
Gneaillumin_8: right05:21
illumin_8It wont tell me if its accessable outside the network?05:21
Gnearhl6856: don't see how that's an issue, unless you've got it set to the default setting where it only connects to the network once you've logged in05:21
Gneaillumin_8: nmap is very good at doing that05:22
rhl6856yes05:22
illumin_8Gnea, thank you ill research that now :)05:22
Gnearhl6856: hrm... i'd switch it back to ati, deal with the lameness until you can get the networkmanager to connect all the time, then try again05:22
rhl6856lol05:23
rhl6856i can fix this by just connecting05:23
Gneaoh ok05:23
rodsanyone have experience with ubuntu netbook remix?05:23
Gnearods: not yet, but hang out and ask in another 10 minutes or so, someone else might be05:23
Dr_willisrods:  ive used it.. and theres a lot of forums on it and specific netbooks.05:24
Gneas/be/know/g05:24
Dr_willisrods:  ive had no flash issues..  that i recall.05:24
rodsI've found a fix for my issue that I want to implement. But I cannot find where flash is installed, even with locate05:24
rodsI believe in previous versions it was located at /etc/.adobe05:25
rodsbut this file does not exist05:25
Dr_willisrods:  update the locate database with 'sudo updatedb' then try the locate commands again05:25
rodsI updated it recently, but was unable to find it. Does it install to some arbitraty folder?05:26
ceali'm searching for a webcam software; which would be the recommended one?05:27
[texas]how do i change the transparent selection  color thing05:27
rhl6856gnea, gave up, rebooting with ati lol..05:28
Dr_willisrods:  no idea. ive never had to  alter the flash files.. you could fire up the package manager and examine the details for the flash package to see wht it installs.. BUT i think it just some how downloads/runs the adobe installer...05:28
Dr_willisrods:  so what file are you looking for? it could be you need to make it.05:29
illumin_8ceal, this page has quite a bit of info reguarding the webcam software available https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam05:29
Gnearhl6856: heh k05:29
rhl6856gnea, the problem is for some reason the 'networkmanager' is locked05:29
rhl6856i have to use a keyring password to use it05:29
illumin_8personally i liked cheese but it doesnt work with all cams.05:29
rhl6856i think i messed something up today that causes that05:29
Gnearhl6856: i gave up on networkmanager and installed wicd05:29
rhl6856gnea, is that better? what are the advantages?05:30
Gnearhl6856: it's way better05:30
cealthanks illumin_805:30
gnranybody with openvpn and pkcs11 experiences here?05:31
rhl6856will i get better wireless performance?05:32
hocuspocuscan anyone tell me why I cant use my printer on ubuntu hardy 8.04 lts version?05:32
rhl6856my wireless card is barely supported. DWA-55205:32
rhl6856its currently getting 40% when a machine nearby can get 100%05:32
rodswhy would updatedb give permission denied to "/home/user/.gvfs05:33
Dr_willisrods:  its a special  type of directory.    its like dynamically created.05:33
Gnearhl6856: it's just another interface to get wired/wireless to work, it doesn't always do anything different, although a few minor things seem to work better05:34
gnrrods:Gnome virtual file system is a protected file even to root05:34
Dr_willisrods:  i wonder why locate isent told to ignore it..05:34
rhl6856(getting it now)05:34
Dr_willisrods:  ive never had locate try to mess with it befor.05:34
rodsDr_willis agreed05:34
Dr_willisrods:  locate also ignores stuff in /media/ i recall.. which can be good or bad...05:34
gnrthe config is in /etc/updatedb.conf05:35
disconectwhy does the website have Hardy and Jaunty for download but not Intrepid?05:36
disconectI don't understand ubuntu's version numbers & names at all!05:36
rodsDr_willis so the fix for choppy flash player I'm trying is one adobe put in their blog awhile back, http://www.tuxradar.com/content/ubuntu-netbook-remix-904-hands search for mms.cfg05:36
gnrrods:maybe your PRUNEFS is missing05:36
Dr_willisdisconect:  its not a version # really.. its the date it was released.05:36
disconectthey have 8.04 and 9.04 but not 8.10 - same with kubuntu05:36
Gneadisconect: it's pretty simple, actually: the version numbers refer to the month and year05:36
rodsgnr what is prunefs05:36
disconectoh wow, thats cool!05:36
alex___disconect: 8.10 wasn't a long term support...05:37
Gneadisconect: so 8.04 was released in April of 2008, 8.10 in October of 200805:37
gnrrod:/etc/updatedb.conf05:37
[texas]how do i change the selection square thing's color05:37
alex___disconect: Therefore it was only available for 6 months.05:37
firevaiisnt grub.conf located in /boot/grub?05:37

Dr_willishttp://releases.ubuntu.com/05:37
firevaitrying to help my buddy edit it and take out old unused entries05:37
Dr_willisLTS is  sort of a 'business' thang :)  if you are running a server for work.. you wan tit to be supported as long as it can be.05:38
Dr_willisfor your average home user.. its not that big a deal05:38
Dr_willisdisconect:  that url i posted has 8.1005:38
disconectI see.....do they still release patches and stuff for the non-LTS?05:39
firevaiok so am i correct here.. grub.conf is in /boot/grub?05:39

rhl6856gnea, www.pastebin.com/f44ae180f05:41
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  dont share /home/ amoung different disrtos.. it can cause issues with file ownership. now 2 ubuntu variants can get by with it If you add the users in the same order.05:41

alazyworkaholicDr_willis: ok. thanks. I imagine that has something to do with user id #'s or something like that. It would be Ubuntu & Gentoo.05:42
firevaiall i am wondering is why my buddy cant edit grub.conf05:42
firevaiit should be in /boot/grub05:43
firevaiso we are using nano -w /boot/grub/grub.conf05:43

firevaiand its displaying a blank window05:43
firevaiwierd... ok05:43
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  users in Ubuntu start at uid 1000, some disrtos start at 500. so it can cause issues.. :)05:44

alazyworkaholicDr_willis: ok, understood. Do you think I'll have problems if I manually set them equal? (Assuming I can do that?)05:44
buckyfirevai: you mean /boot/grub/menu.lst05:45
ubottudisconect: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Hardy (Hardy Heron 8.04).  The next LTS release is scheduled to be 10.0405:45
prince_jammysalazyworkaholic: if that's the issue, change your Gentoo users UIDs to the same as Ubuntu's.05:45
light50hi JoshuWAA not sure if i can help but what is the issue?05:45
disconectcool - I think I get it now, thanks!05:45
JoshuWAAI don't know how to connect to my wireless router at all in 8.0405:45

JoshuWAAI believe so.05:46
=== food is now known as Guest42024
JoshuWAAI just can't find any wireless networks at all.05:47
prince_jammysalazyworkaholic: in ubuntu, this would be done with 'usermod'. See if that's installed in Gentoo.05:47
rhl6856gnea, are you still there?05:47

Netizen1993hi all.. I have a small problem, I need to know how to find out what driver Ubuntu is using to control my sata drives?  so I can find a driver for windows? for the same computer.. since this only came with Vista.. and I'd like to put XP on it.. along with Ubuntu... Win for Gaming of course :)  LOL05:51
dotblank[R]: Thx05:51
[R]alazyworkaholic: there is none05:51
[R]Netizen1993: stuff linux uses has nothign to do with windows05:51
Netizen1993it only came with Vista.. so there's no XP drivers in existence..05:51
[R]Netizen1993: ok and this has to do with linux because...05:52
Netizen1993[R], I realize that.. but it can help me to find a driver to use.. if I can figure out what it's currently using.05:52
dotblank[R]: I guess he wants to know what hardware / chipset hes using... a simple hardware information program should get that05:52
=== food is now known as Guest983
[R]Netizen1993: you're using a driver in the linux kernel... not gonna help you at all with windows05:52
Netizen1993so I can slipstream a windows install cd05:52
[R]you can't put linux drivers on a windows cd...05:52
Netizen1993[R].  I understand that..05:53
dotblank[R]: hes using linux to determine and identify his hardware and then with that knowledge locate the windows driver himself05:53
Netizen1993but if I can find out what the maker of the controller is I can get a driver for windows.05:53
Gnearhl6856: okay, did you actually replace "ati" with "radeon" or did you add it on another line?05:53
rhl6856i replaced it05:53

rhl6856do I have to remove radeon first?05:58
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  i always use primary partitions (you can have 4 max) when possible.05:58
rhl6856gnea, remove radeon first?05:58
pcbuilder97the prossescor seems to be working a bit much too05:58
Gnearhl6856: the package? no, they can co-exist - you're only using one at a time05:58
rhl6856ok05:58
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  not sure if they go from the inside out or outside in.. not sure it really matters much these days for speed.05:58
alazyworkaholicDr_willis: will do, but why?05:59
dotblankEgros: depends on the distro... you might be better off doing a netboot or burning a cd with the kernel and the initrd and using the flash drive for the squashfs root05:59
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  its easier to work with primaries if you ever need to resize them.05:59
dotblankEgros: does it not have a cd drive05:59
rhl6856wow05:59
Dr_willisalazyworkaholic:  windows is the os with the issues with  lots of primaries. :) linux dosent care.05:59

ubottuschnoodles: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:26

delimaxrrajaratnam: i'm not sure how you can do that, i would start by determining which subsystem is responsible for setting the permissions of newly created files07:32
Xioxiawoah07:32
delimaxrrajaratnam: it also depends on which program/service actually creates them07:32
Xioxiaway over my head.07:32
delimaxrrajaratnam: if it is the direct result of a syscall, then you might be entering kernel space to find the solution07:33

ubottuxavieran, this is another way: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate09:14

onexusedpkkm: If you use one bracket with if [ , you should use -gt -lt instead of > < .  Two brackets [[ are recommended, though.  You can use < > with that.  Right now, I think bash thinks you want to use the file "18" as imput to "$date".11:59

ShorTieLaughs Out Loud12:04
teknet29I had hostapd working on the devices that I wanted to use, but the masquerading would not work. Do you have to have the server installation of ubuntu to get the iptables_nat, etc... to work properly?12:04
RavahanI'm going to see if I can't get this re-installed here and go from there.  So far, I've not gotten Wine to load any installers whatsoever though.12:04
onexusedRavaban: cd "/home/Program Files" (it's case sensitive.  If there are spaces, put it in quotes, or put a \ right before the space ( cd /home/Program\ Files ))  Also, it's one x used, not on excused : )12:05

ubuntu__hello, i'm working on a iMac now, can i replace mac os with ubuntu? the live cd is working fine12:06
teknet29Are you serious dude???? God, I have been working on this system for like three days after work, and linux has a similar switch that is like "NEVER" mentioned.... Man. I hope that has got it.12:06
jgomez2Can anyone help me, my DVD drive will not recognize any commercial DVDs anymore, i am running 9.04 and have downloaded the codecs from mediabuntu.12:06
teknet29Thanks in advance.12:06
iFuzoHold on guys...12:06
maureenhai12:07
junkeR__Hello everyone, does ubuntu 9.04 have better support for suspend/hibernation?12:07
done365bazhang: the tutorials seem to already assume you have installed, but seem to neglect the fact that it uninstalls when you follow their steps. I believe that I need all three, becuase with the first two I can't do anything and with just the third synce-pls show file folders on my mogul12:07
lesshastejaunty has this maddening problem where sometimes I can't switch focus between windows12:07
onexusedubuntu__: I believe there's an icon on the live cd's desktop that will run the install.  I might be wrong, though.12:07
FlanneljunkeR__: Yes, actually.12:07
lesshasteno matter what I do it seems to want to keep the focus on some old terminal window12:08
lesshastehas anyone else seen this and does anyone know a fix?12:08
bazhangdone365, could you link me the tutorial? I found one about htc but a different model12:08
lesshasteI have to restart X to fix it each time12:08
boumahow can i get some help in repairing my 9.04 ext4 failure ??12:08
teknet29Why doesn't this service just start upon loading of the appropriate drivers with the -nat command to iptables? That is still puzzling me. ON BSD, either it works because it can, or it doesn't because the kernel module is not installed.12:08
iFuzoIn reagards to the person who asked about Mac, Do you want a dual-boot or use your whole partion?12:08
onexusedlesshaste: I know in gnome, you can set a window to stay on top.  If you right-click on the title bar, is "always on top" checked?12:08
ubuntu__onexused, yes, i can reinstall mac os later i guess12:09
ubuntu__onexused, i just dont like macos its too commercial with codecs for example and quicktime12:09
boumais there a tool to repair ext412:09
boumaor to let me mount ext4 from 8.10 ??12:09
causasuijgomez2: You still having problems with DVDs?12:09
jribbouma: fsck?12:09
lesshasteonexused, it isn't but it isn't actually on top when this happens..12:09
done365bazhang: http://www.synce.org/moin/SynceInstallation/Ubuntu/ModernDevice , http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=136257&page=15 , the first is the official of synce and the other seemed to deal closely with my problem, but not exactly12:09
jgomez2causasui: yes i am12:10
lesshasteonexused, as an example the mouse stays in the shape for typing in a terminal and doesn't become a pointer12:10
causasuijgomez2: Did you install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package?12:10
onexusedlesshaste: Okay.  I guess I don't have a solution for you then.  Sorry.12:10
iFuzoUbuntu__: Try inserting your disk than selecting the boot menu and run the installion for ubuntu. And choose the Mac OS partion to install it on. This way it will overwrite it12:10
onexusedubuntu__: If you don't want MacOS at all, it's easy to overwrite it.  If you want to dual-boot Ubuntu and MacOSX, you should be able to do that, too.12:11
jgomez2causasui: yes12:11
onexusedubuntu__: What iFuzo said.12:11
causasuijgomez2: What are you using to play DVDs? Also, are you sure the drive isn't physically failing and that the DVDs are not corrupted?12:11
Ravahanonexused: Well, now I learned something from that at least.  But nogo on starting the app.  "fixme:exec:SHELL_execute flags ignored: 0x00000500" when I try to run the game's exe file.12:11
bazhangdone365, did you use the experimental kde4 PPA? that seems to be the source of the packages conflict if so12:12
jgomez2causasui: is there a way i can check if the drive is physically failing and i am sure the dvds are not corrupted they work in my xbox12:12
ubuntu__iFuzo, i'm in xchat using the livecd right now12:12
ubuntu__iFuzo, only thing that i might be missing is future firmware updates12:12
causasuijgomez2: I don't know of any good way except to put another drive in the machine or take that one out and put it in another machine. PM me and I'll see if I can help other than that12:12
onexusedRavahan: And nothing happens at all, after that?  It may be that you'll have to install it with wine so you -can- get the dlls you were talking about, then : \12:12
iFuzoUbuntu__: You can run them at a later date after the installiation12:13
done365bazhang: no I didn't have that spec app installed,  uninstalled any related apps first12:13
boumajrib: well fsck gives me many opportunities to say <y> but im afraid i will damage it further. can i mount it ro from this 8.10 system and copy the files across. can i get a kernel module that will let me mount ext4 ?12:13
danbhfivejgomez2: dmesg may report errors if the drive was bad12:13
RavahanOnexused: Yeah, I'm going to try it and see if it'll load this installer.  I've hot had any luck with installers at all so far (which is how I ended up with WineTricks) for windows apps.12:13
ubuntu__iFuzo, the firmware updates? i need macos to run them?12:14
jribbouma: I don't know.  I would use a jaunty live cd12:14
onexusedHow do I get apt to use a server I set in synaptic instead of the default server?  When I run apt-cache for a file I want to update, I see the same number beside the server I set and the default one, with the default on top.12:14
RavahanOnexused: I'm pretty sure I saw Daemon Tools in synaptic, so I'm gonna load up my disk rip in that and do a fresh install wherever Wine wants it-- assuming it works.12:14
iFuzoOhh, Well you can run them at a later date anyway?12:14
RavahanOnexused: Back in a bit, I'll let you know whether or not it works.12:15
onexusedRavahan: You shouldn't need daemon tools to mount isos in Linux.  Just use "mount" : )12:15
RavahanOnexused: Oh that's so freaking awesome12:15
onexusedRavahan: "mount -o loop isofile mountpoint" You probably need to run it as root, though.  "sudo mount..."12:16

djnomadonexused,  will I have to do that every boot ?12:39
EruditeHermitjrib: when I first installed that partition it detected both, but I wanted my first install to be in control of the boot loader12:39
onexuseddjnomad: You can set it to mount somewhere automatically.12:40
jribEruditeHermit: it's probably easier to just chainload12:40
djnomadthats in fstab ?12:40
onexuseddjnomad: Either there, or somewhere else.  Most people mount things in /mnt or /media, so you might want to tell it to mount there.12:40
iFuzoBala: Has your mic got a volume control on it?12:40
onexuseddjnomad: Yes.12:40

jribEruditeHermit: what's wrong with chainloading?12:45
EruditeHermitjrib: what happened is this. I have my daily install which I installed first. I then installed a test install. That rewrote the bootloader and started booting that partition automatically and took control. I reinstalled grub using my original partition. Now grub doesn't see the test partition kernels. I want it to detect that it exists. Is that possible?12:45

voidmageis there a firefox addon like keyconfig that works in 3.5? I'm looking for something to suppress ctrl+q12:46
jribEruditeHermit: yes, setup chainloading for that other install12:46
onexuseddjnomad: It might be hard to get ubuntu to use pcman instead of thunar by default, though12:46
voidmage(and keyconfig worked in 3.0 but hasn't been updated yet)12:46
Balaifuzo: shown volume control12:46
Balaifuzo: nxt12:46
EruditeHermitjrib: is there a script to do that or do I have to manually edit menu.lst?12:46
onexuseddjnomad: Say something to me in PM, please?  My IRC client's weird and I sometimes can't just /msg people.12:47
iFuzoBala: Click Preferences and make sure all the mic related settings and ticked12:47
iFuzoBala: Than you can close it12:47
jribEruditeHermit: just edit menu.lst and add: title Test Ubuntu; root (hd0,1); chainload +1;             where ; are newlines and you update root to the right partition12:47

ubottuCyr4x: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?12:48

iFuzoBala: Hmm12:51
EruditeHermitjrib: ok thanks12:51
onexusedRavahan: That's too bad.  I don't have much experience telling what wine errors mean, unfortunately.12:52
RavahanOnexused: That's totally fine, I learned a lot from this anyway12:52
jribsmellynoser: dpkg -L command-not-found | grep bash12:52
RavahanOnexused: Maybe this should be common sense, but how could I completely remove wine and winetricks and all their components to do a fresh installation?12:53
onexusedRavahan: All your wine settings and everything installed with it are in /home/Ravahan/.wine by default.  The .wine folder may be hidden.12:54
Balaifuzo: cool it's ok how to play nfs most wanted12:54
RavahanSo uninstall via add/remove or Synaptic and then delete .wine?12:54
iFuzoBala: Install Wine12:54
RavahanOnexused: Sorry,  So uninstall via add/remove or Synaptic and then delete .wine?12:54
frogzoo1Ravahan: dpkg --purge wine12:55
iFuzoBala: apt-get install wine12:55
iFuzoThan you can run windows applications12:55
Balaifuzo:installed wine direct x ?12:55
onexusedRavahan: You don't need to uninstall wine if you jsut want to get rid of winetricks, the settings, the things you installed with it.12:55
iFuzoNo. Just go to terminal and type in "apt-get install wine"12:56
iFuzoBala: Above and less the quotes12:56
RavahaniFuzo: I do have Wine, but its giving me installer hangups.12:56
RavahanBala: Yes, via WineTricks12:57
Ravahanfrogzoo1: what's the dpkg command do?12:57
Balaravahan: hmmm ok12:57
