jchamm1monkey_d_luffy: Maybe octave?00:00
Alvinwaredelly, can i install windows vista in wine?00:00
dellypodginater: Unless its a analogy00:00
lstarnesAlvinware: you don't install windows itself in wine00:00
snarksterive setup samba on 9.04 and created a share. I goto to network in nautilus and get an error "Failed to retrieve share list" but there are shares on other machines as well..00:00
dellyAlvinware: you can install Windows software in wine and hope it works :P00:00
snarkstershouldnt i be able to see my own shares?00:00
DasEi!virtualisation | Alvinware00:01
ubottuAlvinware: There are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications00:01
rootlinuxusrSnarkster Do you have a firewall installed?00:01
dellyAlvinware: That includes viruses00:01
jason__How can I start an application from the command line in GNOME so that it starts minimized?  wmctrl can not do it.00:01
GrizmaweAlvinware: wine is used to run windows programs, not the OS itself. You can get vmware server for free though taht will run windows00:01
arandAlvinware: no, wine is a compability layer for applications, not for windows itself, you'd need a virtual amchine for that...00:01
snarksterin kde is does suggest that maybe a firewall is setup00:01
mr_steveguestadmin: well that's truly weird then00:01
guestadminmr_steve this is weird..... you helped me accidentally discover another weird problem...sigh ;) lol00:01
Kingsy101DasEi - hmm am I being stupid here, how do I get into a terminal without booting into ubuntu ?00:01
rootlinuxusrif so, you should probably enable the ports for samba - 137-139, 44500:02
snarksterunless 9.04 comes with a firewall already configured.00:02
DasEiAlvinware: better use virtualbox, as you can do images from OS'es free, vmware only has a trial on generating, though player is free00:02
mr_steveguestadmin: I've never run in to that before, although I have lost all the menus before00:02
snarksteri think its my freaking router.00:02

DasEiKingsy101: why won't you boot ?00:02
guestadminmr_steve:always a new adventure I guess, Im currently checking the boards for some history ;)00:03
arandKingsy101: Start another linux distro? When you have a terminal form an ubuntu install, you are per definition running ubuntu ;)00:03
Alvinwaredelly, Unix/Linux can't be hacked?00:03
dellyAnyone got any experience with downgrading from Ext4 to Ext3?00:03
DasEiKingsy101: ah now I get you, keyboard isn't working; have you got al live cd ?00:03
Kingsy101I am trying recovery mode now00:03
dellyAlvinware: it can like anything else. Its just harder when the OS is not full of blatant known holes00:04
Kingsy101DasEi - ok I am in grun00:04
dellyAlvinware: And a proper security structure is in place00:04
gareimsmall question here: im on 9.04 with ext3. when 9.10 comes out and i upgrade, will it automatically make me ext4?00:04
jfaosdpsomeone has installed ubuntu in his Mac ?00:04
Kingsy101do I need to go into a root prompt ? or fix xserver? or what?00:04
plaguehivif i want to install Compiz it is just to run "sudo aptitude install compiz" right?00:04
DasEiKingsy101: try root prompt00:04
Kingsy101DasEi - ok I am there00:05
arandgareim: no, you'd have to do that manually, and it is not complete  even then I've heard.00:05
Alvinwaredelly, so does that mean when i chat with a hacker, he may successfully hacked in my system?00:05
Akufensketchyd_ it seems you need to try it multiple times, and there's another solution further down the page00:05
dellygareim: Nope <.<00:05
DasEigareim : you can turn ext3 to ext4 any time, but from that on only futuure data will be written in ext4, works also on 9.0400:05
gareimarand: thanks for the response. ill do it manually when 9.10 comes out then... i been hearing theres stuff wrong with it right now00:06
gareimthanks for the replies guys00:06
DasEiKingsy101: does keyboard work ?00:06
Kingsy101DasEi - yep00:06
dellyAlvinware: Only if he knows how, just like about anything else. How hard it is for a pro hacker to get is, thats easy for the hacker since we are talking a pro. BUT the OS itself is harder to hack the Windows, and thats a bloody good point to have in the back of your head.00:06
arandgareim: so 9.10 seems to be very much a "fresh install" release, what with grub2 ext4 and all...00:06
legend2440sketchyd_: command is actually    sudo apt-get -f install00:06
Kingsy101DasEi - can I pm you it would be easier ?00:06
DasEiKingsy101: cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg_backup00:06
YaManicKillcan someone give me the default startup applications in a vanilla ubuntu gnome installation? cause i managed to delete them all00:07

DasEiKingsy101: no need, short way00:07
DasEiKingsy101: dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg00:07
guestadminAnyone know how to restore a missing "Startup Applications" tab from my System>Preferences Tab, It just disappeared...sigh ;)00:07
Kingsy101DasEi - its just I am not really sure about making a backup of that file, I edited that for a reason you see00:07
DasEiKingsy101: cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg_backup00:07
arandgareim: Yea, I've heard there are pretty rough changes atm, I'm running it on one coputer but I haven't pushed in the latest big changes yet...00:07
Akufensketchyd_ you're root right? or using sudo?00:08
Kingsy101DasEi - ok 1 sec00:08
gareimarand: wait, so does that mean that if I want some of the benefits of 9.10 (faster boot time), i might as well do a fresh install?00:08
Alvinwaredelly, ext4 is stable, not beta?00:08
sketchyd_yeah, using sudo00:08
sketchyd_akufen - ive tried running it a few times, and no dice00:08
legend2440sketchyd_: you on jaunty? what were you installing when it broke?00:08
Raydiationwhy doesnt nautilus restart itself after ive killed it?00:08
mr_steveguestadmin: thinking about it, it just occurred to me you can try right clicking on the menu and choosing "Edit Menus"00:08
Raydiationi still see no desktop00:08
dellyAlvinware: it is quite stable, but not debian stable stable. There are random files going missing once in a while, so its stable as in 0.8 :P00:09
legend2440sketchyd_: you on jaunty?00:09
arandgareim: It is probably fully possible to do the upgrade and conversion ext3-ext4 etc. but it seems like there will be a good deal of manaul work involed if you'd want all the benefits...00:09
sketchyd_im on jaunty, trying to re-install mysql00:09
Alvinwaretriiiiiiplee mooooonsteeeer kills!00:09
mr_steveguestadmin: that should give you a list of enabled and disabled menu items. If Startup Applications doesn't show up in that list, however, I'm at a loss00:09
dellyAlvinware: i am considering downgrading my root FS in case something randomly disturbing needed files go missing <.<00:09

YaManicKillcan someone give me the default startup applications in a vanilla ubuntu gnome installation? cause i managed to delete them all00:10
Alvinwaredelly, ext4 for debian is stable, but not for ubuntu?00:10
blognewbi think i got blindsided. I just purchased a VPSLink account then i saw http://corenetworks.net/dedicated/discount/00:11
gareimhey, why is it that on windows, open office could do .docx files, but not i dont see an option on ubuntu??00:11
dellyAlvinware: Ext4 is close to stable but not stable. Debian is the distro that is the definition of stable, going by word.00:11
Kingsy101DasEi - ok thats done.. is there a command to re-start ? I guess thats the next step ?00:12
dellyAlvinware: with the sole catch of Sidux existsing(debian unstable), which is a testing distro for people bleeding for bleeding edge :P00:12
Jared555hello, is it normal for apt-get to return the progress of downloads like Kilobytes of Megabytes completed?00:12
DasEiKingsy101: you ran both commands ?00:12

guestadminmr_Steve: would  "Sessions" be the same thing?00:12
Jared555actually, bytes of kilobytes/megabytes00:12

Bmw1000chello guys00:14
DasEiKingsy101: as they are both not mentioned in xorg, it'll be something else; I wonder why you use framebuffer, but just restart00:15
guestadminmr_steve thats probably the issue, I might have been in "sessions" under the tab "startup programs"00:15

pirokoAnyone know why after I set my fan1_output in /sys to a higher value, it returns to where it was after a second?00:16
DasEiKingsy101: back to rootprompt00:16
dellyAlvinware: Thats to check the file system quite simple to check for random errors(which are rare), it can be disabled but its just there for random reasons. Its quite usefull when its needed, or if fragmentation is starting00:16
crash2108_How can I get this thing to actually install?!  I know the CD works with the same drive on another computer.00:16
guestadminmr_steve, seems fine now, I guess it was versio difference, than God that was all, but now Im also prepared for an upgrade. A very educational day on XChat for me indeed. thx00:16

crash2108_Anyone know?00:18
pirokoI'm on a macbook pro 5 btw00:18
Alvinwaredelly, so, ext3 got fragmentation too, hot to fix it?00:18
Alvinwaredelly, i mean how?00:18
GrizmaweDatz: yes - you can remove them fine, they are just the backport entries. Also gutsy is no longer supported as of april so you might want to consider upgrading to 8.10 (hardy)00:18
DatzGrizmawe: Ok thanks.  :)00:19
loshervr_mex: the keys are usually autogenerated when you do a successfull sshd (Note the d at the end of sshd) install. Did that not happen?00:19
th0rAlvinware: linux drives don't suffer from fragmentation00:19
crash2108_Excuse me for being a bit of  a linux noob.00:19
DasEiKingsy101:is that jaunty / 9.04 ?00:19
Kingsy101DasEi - oh I think I have it 1 sec00:19
vr_mexlosher: when i did the sudo: /etc/init.d/sshd restart i got a command not found00:20
dellyAlvinware: It barely happens, unless your running a server with several gigs of data going trough raid disk every day, its not going to appere. And the fragmentation is still minor.00:20
Alvinwareth0r, linux drive never ever fragment?00:20
pirokoAh. Apparently I had to set fan1_manual to 1. Any reason why the fans wouldn't kick in automatically even though my laptop was getting hot?00:20
Kingsy101DasEi - naw I cant get pastebinit installed00:20
th0rAlvinware: nope....the way linux records info fragmentation isn't a problem.00:20
loshercrash2108_: noobs are welcome here. Usually you just put the CD in & it boots. So I dunno. Check the md5sum on the cd?00:20
DasEiKingsy101:ping googlecom             <<network reachable ?00:21
bobbob1016For some reason my PC has started shutting down on boot.  I started it in recovery and it seems that it is trying to fsck and then shuts down.  I did remove a drive before, but it booted fine after that.  Any ideas?00:21
th0rAlvinware: there is no 'defrag' in linux00:21
DasEiKingsy101 ping googlecom             <<network reachable ?00:21
dellyth0r, Alvinware: it does have fragment, but it does not suffer from it in contrast to Windows XP where it slowly earts your system alive00:21
loshervr_mex: then you don't have sshd installed. Do you understand the difference between ssh and sshd? Let me know if not...00:21
Almteshth0r no defrag on linux.00:21
arandAlvinware: they do, but not to any great extent, normally "normal users" do not need to care about it.00:21
Almteshth0r but why.00:21
bobbob1016DasEi: "ping google.com"00:21
Grizmawevr_mex: try doing a "sudo dpkg-reconfigure openssh-server00:21
Almteshth0r It might be useful.00:21
Kingsy101DasEi - it says unknown host00:21
bobbob1016DasEi: Without quotes00:21
dellyth0r, Almtesh: Ext4 got defrag00:21
crash2108_losher, I booted the CD up in the same CD drive just connected to a different computer.  The drive and CD are good.  I don't know what's up.  I guess it can't handle a fresh computer.00:21
th0rAlmtesh: what do you mean why...the use a different way of organizing info on the drive, so there is no defrag00:22
vr_mexlosher: i do have sshd installed i do which sshd and get /usr/sbin/sshd00:22
bobbob1016sorry, then Kingsy101: "ping google.com" without quotes, try www.google.com too00:22
ubottuThe default Ubuntu filesystem (ext3) is engineered to avoid fragmentation issues in most cases, see http://linkpot.net/behead/ for a simple example on how it achieves this.00:22

Kingsy101DasEi - done but the ping still doesnt work00:23
dellyAlmtesh, th0r: Ext3 got no defrag tools, Ext4 got one. Ext4 also got some upgrades over Ext3, but its not entirely stable.00:23
pirokodelly: "Not entirely stable"? Says who?00:23
gareimshould i (can i even?) run clam av across the whole filesystem? or is it enough to do my home folder?00:23
vr_mexlosher: how do i reinstall do i uninstall via synaptic and the re install ?00:23
loshercrash2108_: it's not unheard of. Some hardware can't boot & run Ubuntu. It's rare though. Try googling your make & model number & see if other people report an incompatibility....00:23

DatzGrizmawe: I have my updater set to only update when a long term release is ready.  Can I update to a longterm release yet?00:24
Kingsy101DasEi - I don't really know what we are doing now, we are a little off the point00:25
vr_mexlosher: ok thanks let me try it out00:25
dellypiroko: its more like nitpicking non-stable. Its more than stable enough for a normal user, but there is some minor issue that still could remain :P So basicaly its stable from a regular point of view00:25
DasEiKingsy101 : I try to get it to network to gather more information; it's little weird, you got keyb. working on cmdline, but not on xserver00:25
GrizmaweDatz: then you should already be running 7.10 - Hardy Herron was the last LTS release. do the rest of the source lines refer to gutsy too or are they hardy?00:26

th0rpiroko: good question00:27
losherAlvinware: that said, I've never seen a report of wine being infected. I think because wine users don't surf from inside wine as a rule...00:28
DasEiKingsy101 : then just delete content of the actual xorg.conf and restart with blank one00:28
DatzGrizmawe: I guess those URL's should have been removed when I updated to 8.04 from 7.1000:28
GrizmaweDatz: sorry -my bad, 8.04 is the LTS release. In that case the gutsy lines you pasted must be leftovers. Can be safely removed. Make a backup of your sources file if you wish first00:28
loshercrash2108_: I've never heard of that. You got that from google?00:28

jfaosdphow many rpm's do you advise me for an iMac in ubuntu ? :P00:28
dellyAlvinware: only if you run the viruses. Aka running browser from wine, then doing all apps there, etc. And still you could remove the viruses acces from everything outside the wine folder in case you got a strike of paranoia :P00:29
dellypiroko: Mainly a few sysadmin i have been talking to, its just nitpicking anyway......00:29
DatzGrizmawe: Ok, thanks.  Now if I could only find those URL's in sources.list00:29
th0rAlvinware: the worst case it would infect the wine install, you would have to reinstall wine. But as losher said...if you use wine you still do your web browsing in linux so windows viruses aaren't a problem00:29
vr_mexGrizmawe: I would like to have a passphrase bu in the link you posted says: Do not encrypt the private00:29
vr_mexkey with a passphrase -- just hit <Enter> at the passphrase prompt. why?00:29
arandth0r: actually, since wine has write and read access to your whole home directory (and all other dirs you have rw to) quite nasty things _can_ happen, I've heard about one that dumped .EXE files all over these directories... not directly harmful but annoying and a bugger to clean up afterwards.00:29
Guest71603hi, looking for a good program that could erase temporary internet files, cookies and things who slows down the computer, used CG-Cleaner for windows XP but what free program do you folks recommend for ubuntu :O00:30

gareimpik}: maybe try to make 3.5 your default?00:31
arandth0r: Unless you consider completely thrashing your login with all your configurations "permanent" no.00:31

loshervr_mex: the *host* key just identifies the server. It's a safety feature to alert you in case someone replaces the server with a counterfeit machine. It's different to the *session* keys you use to login. You don't want a passphrase for the host key.00:32

Kingsy101DasEi - ok 1 sec00:36
DasEiKingsy101:also your setting using framebuffer often causes trouble, jaunty's xorg is empty by default00:36
DekkoHello everybody!00:36
Kingsy101DasEi - so perhaps reconfigure without framebuffer ?00:36
loshervr_mex: the host key is usually generated *once* when you install sshd. After that, you generally don't want it to change because if it changes, ssh will worry that it means the machine changed. It's just a security feature. Session keys for logging in are dealt with separately.00:36

* Dekko is wondering if THIS is a BUG: I have a Geforce 9600GT graphicscard running the latest Nvidia drivers from nvidia. Having two monitors setup as separate X servers... all works NICELY except switching to a text console. That blacks out both monitors. If I use Twinview (stretch) it works.00:37
losherAlvinware: most of us don't consider the ability to pass on a virus as a good thing :-)00:37
arandth0r: Well, it was for an experimental reason. However, it does not lessen the fact that wine and viruses may be considerably harmful.00:37

Kingsy101what will happen to all of my files and programs ?00:46

arandth0r: well so far only people that have intentionally run viruses have been affected (afaik) so currently the problem might not be that big, and as long as you are selective with the apps that runs in wine I guess the safety might be satisfiable, it might become a considerable hole in the future though, if nothing is done...00:47

masterkoppaspursncowboys, it will help in most cases as their both linux01:41
masterkoppaspursncowboys, also if I'm not mistaken their both based on debian01:41
cooper77zcan you install the broadscope font libraries from applications library or synaptic?01:42
masterkoppaspursncowboys, but i would recomend you read their documentation and base anything you do on that01:42
CapaHOk let me explain what I am trying to do. I want to create an ip address on *this* machine - like or or whatever -- I want it to be so that anything sent to *that* ip address, on port 22 --- goes to a different ip address, on port 99 --- how can I do that?01:42
masterkoppaspursncowboys, that way any support they can give you will be usefull for you01:42
=== _MrsApple_ is now known as _MrApple_
CapaHin this way I can ssh to blah@ instead of ssh to blah@_other_ip -p 99   -- removes the need to specify port01:43
spursncowboysWell really I want to buy my nephew the book and send him a disk and let him at it on his dell ispiron 265001:43
buckyhow come crunchbang doesn't have an irc channel on freenode?01:43
spursncowboysit has 256 mb and I read that is not good enough for ubuntu01:43
Picibucky: they do. #crunchbang01:43
Seven_Six_TwoCapaH, /etc/hosts01:44
CapaH... of course01:44
pik}is there any way to use mouse4 (back) mouse5 (forward) with nautilus?01:44
masterkoppaspursncowboys, the book would be good reference, but if your looking for small size try xubuntu01:44
CapaHSeven_Six_Two, : You can tell etc/hosts an IP address and PORT ?01:44
buckyoh cool 50 users01:44
masterkoppaits made for this type of cases01:44
Seven_Six_Twothat I'm not sure of...01:44
spursncowboyswould that be closer to the referrence type books for ubuntu?01:44
losherCapaH: Seven_Six_Two: no ports in /etc/hosts, sorry...01:45
CapaHah thats what I need01:45
CapaHI need the port01:45
buckyspursncowboys: the crunchbang wki and forums01:45
masterkoppaspursncowboys, yeah since its the same base code, you would only need to change references in gui tools and you can intall them on top if necesarry01:45
mcpancakescooper77z, 'sudo aptitude search broadscope' nor searching for 'broadscope' in synaptic yields any results. what is that package?01:45
CapaHIs there a way to assign additional ips to this machine? If so I can modify ssh_config to use default ports01:46
cooper77znot code01:46
Seven_Six_TwoI'm sure squid would do it, although I don't know how easy it is to set up01:46
CapaH... aliases01:46
miroslav_amagaaaaaaad ubuntu's kewl! :D01:46
masterkoppaspursncowboys, if you decide to go for crunchbag it would be better to follow their documentation, rather than the ubuntu book01:46
pik}is there any way to use mouse4 (back) mouse5 (forward) with nautilus?01:46
cooper77zbut I think if you search ubuntu forums under google gonts your edition you will find the package you could install to enable fonts in firefox01:47
masterkoppaspursncowboys, besides online documentation is always better than a book since its almost allways up to date01:47
Picispursncowboys: Best to ask in #crunchbang if you're looking for help with it, as it is not an official Ubuntu variant.01:47
spursncowboysmasterkoppa: I didn't find an actual paperback book for that, and it said it is ubuntu01:47
cooper77znot gonts fonts01:47
spursncowboysthanks pici, they are helpin, I wasn't sure if anyone was in there to answer earlier.01:48
CapaHyep got it - using alias + /etc/hosts -- got it working01:48

masterkoppaspursncowboys, you would probably find more documentation regarding its WM openbox, which is the base of chrunchbag01:48
cooper77zthere is a master font installer on the forums01:48

rambo298ahhh the famous "MB" ... riddle me this ... is an MB= 1000 * 1024 * 1024?  or 1000 * 1000 * 1000?  or 1000 * 1024 * 1000?02:13
arand!pastebinit | ltgg if you have net02:13
stovicekjrdave: marketing in the storage world isn't entirely accurate as many find with more often with hard drives. same holds true for memory. you probably have somewhere around 512000 bytes in marketing terms, that's 512MB, not 504MB. It all depends on how you divide the bytes, either by 1024 or 1000.02:13

SuperBertunitypunk, to make it easy install gadmin-samba to setup your samba.  if you want it open over the internet, have your firewall map in ports 137,138,139.  Have the other user connectio to \\ipaddress\share02:22
Seven_Six_Twoltgg, np. if you're looking for some good reading material (aside from free online docs) I recommend "Linux Administrator Handbook". It's pink and has a cartoon on the front, but it's excellent02:23
unitypunkthen they could mount it as a virtual drive right?02:23
SuperBertunitypunk, be aware that samba via internet is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attacks and who can see traffic between you and other user gets the samba password.  samba password does not have to be same as a login user's password.  samba user does not have to be the same as a login user.  you should make the share read only access.02:24
=== media- is now known as media`
SuperBertunitypunk, maybe make your share readonly to public and share over the internet....02:24

twig11Flannel:  so just to make double-sure I'm understanding you correctly, if I want to create a new user with a pre-existing directory as its home directory, I can just go adduser username and that will cause the user to be created, using the existing directory as home instead of overwriting it?02:56
Seven_Six_TwoFlannel, I just read in the LAH that useradd is faster and less error prone (and it's recommended) but the man pages for both useradd and adduser both recommend adduser. lol.02:56

Seven_Six_Tworun synaptic, search for "pulse" and completely remove them. you'll get a popup saying other packages have to be removed as well. write them down. then apply the changes. when that's done, search for the packages that you wrote down and reinstall them. apply, and when that's done, reboot03:03

twig11Seven_Six_Two: I've read man adduser. Unfortunately, I don't think I have enough experience to make sense of how to put this together. What I want to do is create a user whose priveleges would be the equivalent of what is called I think a Desktop User in the "users and groups" GUI.

caffemistoreinstalling proftpd did not bring it back LOL03:37
[R]PROject-Emerald: well w/o knowing what the "problems" are... saying 9.10 fixed it means nothing03:38
PROject-EmeraldOne is that the monitor will completely shut off / hibernate, killing everything I was doing forcing a hard restart to bring it back03:38
caffemistoso, how do i get proftpd command back into /etc/init.d?03:38
PROject-Emeraldand the other one is the OS will crash and nothing will work / clickable, and the mouse is all jumpy also forcing a hard restart.03:38

alex___quinton: So... are you saying your having problems with the internet all together, or just to the xbox?04:47
user01or is it an issue with the proprietary nvidia driver that wouldnt be?04:47

alex___quinton: Hmm... that's odd lol. Sorry, I'm not sure what to tell you04:48

quintonalex___: Like when i use konsole:  inup br0 , my xbox connects fine. but my pc internet is down. so i use sudo route add default gateway then dhclient eth1 and my internet works for like 2 secs then quits while my xbox remains connected. it's weird.04:49

Dr_willistrainer:  what sort of advice? squid is not too hard to get going.04:52

quintonARMENIAN: did you upgrade your repository with sudo apt-get?05:02
ubottuFound: jockey-common, jockey-gtk, jockey-kde05:02
JoAnneThraxARMENIAN: same reason it doesn't have Firefoxz\ 3.505:02
Dr_willisand ive NO idea why its called that.05:02
jedi06how do i see all the wireless routers and their channels they broadcast on?05:02
ARMENIANJoAnneThrax: and what reason is that? :)05:03
jimkJoAnneThrax: jockey-gtk is what you are looking for05:03
ARMENIANquinton: sudo apt-get update? yeah05:03
JoAnneThraxOkay...it's downloading and installing already.  It prompted me right away.05:03
quintonARMENIAN: yeah you might have to add auacious's repository if they have one. Speaking of old old-dated stuff in there, they have a really old version of wine too(wasn't aware until I found out today). Do you know anywhere to report outdated software in the repository?05:04
Dr_willisJoAnneThrax:  its magical! :)05:04
JoAnneThraxWell, it SAYS it's downloading and installing.  Still at 0%, however05:04
mazda01_trying to connect to user level security smb share where the password has a ! and a @ in it. how would I do this from mac os x? i have tried surrounding the password both single quotes and double quotes and neither have worked. I have to enter something like this: smb://user:password@host/share    but I can't figure out how to enter the password.05:04
jedi06how do i see what channel all the wireless routers i'm picking up are broadcasting on?05:04
Dr_willisquinton:  ubuntu dosent consider that a bug. it updates everything eveyr 6mo (approxamatly)05:05
Dr_willisquinton:  if you want the latest wine - use the winehq repos.05:05
Madpilotquinton, you could file a bug, but version updates are only done per release - every six months05:05
JoAnneThraxWhen (if) it downloads and installs, will I still have to do some manual configuring?05:05
quintonmadpilot: oh wow D:05:05
ARMENIANquinton: nah no clue hwere to report :( odd that ubuntu is the most popular rep yet so many things are outdated and yes i did know about wine being outdated, anyway I'm probably just gonna get the package from getdeb.net05:05
Dr_willisquinton:  also ive heard some games dont work as well with version .25 of wine..  they work better with the .24 version  (no idea why, just learned it from reading some forums)05:05
alex___JoAnneThrax: It should get you CCC with it, reboot... if your still having troubles try the settings in CCC05:05
JoAnneThraxIt's still at 0%...that can't possibly be good...05:06
mazda01_Madpilot: however. some people who are ambitous create PPA's and update a package version but you can start breaking stuff on accident if you use PPA's that have uipdated versions. sometimes that is.05:06
JoAnneThraxalex___: Just run "CCC" at a commandline?05:06
juanbondhey guys, is there a way to automatically start remote desktop when the machine boots?  the only reason why i ask is if i reboot my machine, i need to login first, then remote desktop starts to listen.  i was wondering if there's a way for it to listen before a user logs in?05:06
alex___JoAnneThrax: It's amdcccle05:06
Madpilotmazda01, true. I use PPAs for a couple of apps, myself05:06
quintonDr_willis: Yeah I got the latest today. This isn't my gaming rig, got a quadcore with a 9800gtx+ running windows for that :P. Do you have any clue on getting photoshop running perhaps? I have CS4 and crashes at splash screen.05:06
juanbondor is there another solution to remotely manage my machine, besides ssh.05:06
JoAnneThraxalex___: And that's a video configuration app?05:06
SnakDoc whats best way to image your system for quick recovery ?05:07
Dr_willisjuanbond:  if you dont want to share the current visiable desktop. you can just use 'vnc4server' or 'tightvnc' and have a  remote desktop running.. thats NOT displayed locally.05:07
alex___JoAnneThrax: Yeah. But you might not have any problems at all after reboot05:07
Dr_willisjuanbond:  or set up gdm to autologin :)05:07
JoAnneThraxWill that let me do things like set it up for dual monitor and the various resolutions and all that...05:07
quintonARMENIAN: yeah same. I used OpenSuse 10.2 for about a month then went back to windows and just came back. YasT always seemed updated though. Apparently they only update them every six months.05:07
alex___JoAnneThrax: Yup. all that05:07
JoAnneThraxOh, good...it started downloading.05:07
mazda01_Madpilot: yeah. I have used it for pulseaudio, docky, and some others. haven't had any troubles as of yet. do you know how to connect to a smb password share where the password has punctuation in it?05:07
JoAnneThraxI'm going to reboot.  BRB05:07
juanbondDr_willis, is that something like how Terminal Services work for Windows?05:07
Madpilotmazda01, no idea, never used smb05:07
jedi06how do i see what channel all the wireless routers i'm picking up are broadcasting on? so i can set mine to a different channel05:08
ARMENIANquinton: hmm, yeah I might even give archlinux a try too, ubuntu has been good for me as a beginner, but this whole everything being outdated is not too good05:08
Dr_willisjuanbond:  no idea. i dont use that for windows.. I just have used vnc a LOT over the last few years... its a very flexiable tool. and shareing the 'currently displayed desktop' is just ONE way of using it to get a 'remote' desktop. and my least favorite way to use it.05:08
mazda01_jedi06:  what is your wireless interface? ath0, wifi0 or what. i can tell you a command to run which should show you the  channel each router is on05:08
jedi06yes please05:09
quintonARMENIAN: Have you used Opensuse? It has a really good setup for KDE, if you haven't tried it yet. I'm on Kubuntu, not Ubuntu as I can't stand GNOME :p. Honestly, if I need something bad enough like an app i'll go to their website and make sure its the latest version, but i wish they upgraded it on the fly.05:09
Dr_willisjuanbond:  you can install vnc4server. edit the .vnc/xstartup and then 'ssh' into the server. start 'vncserver' then connect via a vnc client. No need for  a local running gnome session at all. :) and the desktop will be persistant.  You can  close the vnc viewer and reconnect at a later time.. or from a differnt box.05:09
mazda01_Dr_willis: i use x11vnc to log into my already logged in sesison. I love it. I ssh in first, then create a tunnel for x11vnc. it's great.05:10
bullgard4What does the letter 'f' stand for in the command 'fuser'? Is it 'file'?05:10
jedi06mazda01, it is either eth0 or eth105:10
jedi06probably eth105:10
rojassorry disk manager is in repositori?05:10
ARMENIANquinton: yeah I've given opensuse a try, I'm the complete opposite of you when it comes to guis, I can't stand KDE :P part of the reason i couldnt deal with openSUSE :P05:10
JoAnneThraxalex___, et. al.: thank you very much!05:10
Dr_willismazda01_:  thats just one way to use vnc...  i never use x11vnc i find it slower.. but im on a local lan. so i never need to tunnle either.05:10
JoAnneThraxIt seems to be working fine.05:10
mazda01_jedi06: that can't be your wireless connection, at least I don't think it can. eth0 and eth1 are normally your ethernet card, not your wireless card. what does lspci -v return>?05:10
Dr_willismazda01_:  if on a local lan. you can also use 'xming' on windows to export the X desktop/apps to appear on your windows machines. :)05:11
mazda01_Dr_willis:  what vnc server is faster and that allows you to see the current users session?05:11
quintonARMENIAN: :O! KDE is so amazing =[. KDE4 is really intuitive and fun to use :p05:11
bullgard4'~$ man umountfs; No manual entry for umountfs.' Why is there no manual page for umountfs?05:11
alex___JoAnneThrax: Sorry I led you in circles trying to make sure you got the newest driver =P05:11
Dr_willismazda01_:  i fimd shareing the current session slows them all down.. the only 2 that i see that can do that are x11vnc and the built in gnome one.. there may be others.. I rarely use it that way05:12
mazda01_bullgard4: can;t you just check the man page for umount?05:12
alex___quinton: Have you tried LinuxMINT?05:12

mazda01_Dr_willis:  oh, i see.05:12
quintonalex___: Nah. I saw it mentioned once, no clue what it is.05:12
alex___quinton: Supposedly they are supposed to have more updates than any other distro05:12
ARMENIANquinton: I've actually installed KDE over gnome on my ubuntu install to give it a try, and it's more resource intensive and it actually crashed my video card or something whenever i would minimize and maxamize things really fast or do somehting only slightly graphics card intensive, with gnome i dont have that problem05:13
novalysHello, I got a silly question... Where can I change the number of virtual desktops on the new Ubuntu 9.04? I'm not able to find this...05:13
mazda01_jedi06:  then run this: iwconfig -i eth1 scanning. I think that's the command05:13
jedi06just tell me how to discover what each wireless router chanell is05:13
bullgard4mazda01_: I did not say that I cannot. But this does not answer my question.05:13
ARMENIANalex___: ive tried linuxmint, didn't like it too much05:13
alex___novalys: One option is to right click on your virtual desktops on your menu bar and select preferences05:13
alex___AREMENIAN: I never actually installed it, just put it on my usb key once lol05:14
quintonalex___: Meh. I like Kubuntu a lot, and the outdated repositories don't bother me too much. Although I was bit upset when I couldn't get WINE working with Digsby and turns out I didn't have the right WINE version :p05:14
JoAnneThraxokay...here's something...05:14

JoAnneThraxThe external monitor is, theoretically, 1920x1080...05:14

mazda01_what does my id_rsa key have to have for owner:group and permissions. I can't seem to get it to work on my mac even though the same key works for my other linux and windows machines.05:14

ARMENIANquinton: nah, it's not too shabby built it 3.5 years ago ati 3200, 1 gig ram, x800gt, 1tb HD, 320 GB HD05:15
quintonARMENIAN: I've always come from windows, and I would consider KDE as an Aeroish interface, way more stylish and looks fantastic but is more resource intensive, but GNOME is like the old windows 98, ugly but quick05:15
alex___novalys: There isn't a number of Workspaces option on yours??05:15

quintonARMENIAN: Yeah MS definitely got W7 right, but it can't hold a candle to Kubuntu from what I've seen. The only thing keeping me from using Kubuntu full time is Photoshop(I'm a web designer D:) and this network bridge05:19

icerootquinton: you can run photoshop with linux (wine)05:20
dpreacherdoes dmesg output get reset on every boot or is there something left from previous bootups?05:20
alex___JoAnneThrax: Theoretically. I've never actually tried it, but it should =P05:20
quintonARMENIAN: You know the release candidate is a legit release and is legal to use until march 2010 right?05:20
alex___quinton: All you have to install in gnome is the settings manager05:21
mazda01_blognewb: touch simply creates a blank file, apt-get update will update apt-get with all the packages in the repositories that you ahve defined and I am not sure what the apt-get -u aptitude does. perform man apt-get and see for yourself.05:21
quintoniceroot: Can't get CS4 to boot right. Crashes on splash screen05:21
quintonalex___: Amarok. xD05:21
alex___quinton: huh?05:21
mazda01_dpreacher: i think dmesg is redone after every boot but I am not sure.05:21
ARMENIANquinton: u get more of the flashy stuff in gnome with compiz and it uses less resources :P plus more advanced05:21
icerootquinton: using wine 1.x? beacuse of the possibility to run photoshop, wine was using a new version number (1.x instead of 0.x)05:21
quintonalex___: Amarok is KDE only, right?05:21
alex___quinton: No...05:22
ARMENIANquinton: yeah, but whose gonna deal with all the cd key games they play :P05:22
quintonARMENIAN: w/e :p05:22
quintoniceroot: I think that was CS2 only. I haven't got CS4 running with the latest release.05:22
ARMENIANquinton: as long as we're on linux :P05:22
alex___quinton: you can run 99% of KDE apps on gnome and 99% of gnome apps on KDE lol... TBH which manager you use really doesn't matter anymore these days... the only diff is the default settings ;)05:22
JoAnneThraxCCC is telling me that I have only on desktop enabled, and I can't configure xinerama until I've Configured another in the Display Manager...05:22

JoAnneThraxWhere, prey tell, is the display manager? :)05:23
quintonARMENIAN: exactly :D05:23
icerootquinton: if i am correct als photoshop-versions are running but but never tested, because i am not a designer and gimp + inkscape are ok for me05:23

rojassorry but i can use gparted in xubuntu? isnt it just for gnome desktop?05:33
SnakDocmazda01_ try "" around it be only guess i have05:33
mazda01_darlykaiser: just pop in 8.10 and install it over 9.04. it's simple. especially if you don't need to save anything from 9.04 install. just overwrite it.05:33
icerootrojas: yes, you can05:33
darlykaiserI did but i want to rid ubuntu 9.04 out my laptop05:33
rojasthanks. :)05:33
mazda01_rojas: you can install gnome or kde apps in xubuntu and about 99% of the time they work because they install the gtk or kde libs with the apps.05:33
mazda01_darlykaiser: if you installed 8.10 OVER 9.04 then 9.04 isn't on your system anymore.05:34
apoleo12Why is  my question being ignored?05:34
alex___iceroot: Ok... if I do it in there it says my new pass must be diff than my old one??05:34
icerootrojas: you can use every-app (kde, gnome, xfce4) with every desktop (kde, gnome, xfce4) just have to install some specific libs sometims (apt-get will do that for you)05:34
darlykaiserhow i can do this?05:34
mazda01_rojas: you could also boot up gparted live cd, and run it that way.05:34
Jeruvy!repeat | apoleo1205:34
wizzo50rojas: then you will have to setup Virtual Box and reset iup your WIndows on there. That is what I was showed last week when I did it after setting a partion up on gparted in the Terminal05:34
ubottuapoleo12: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search  https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org while you wait.05:34
icerootalex___: of course it must be different. passwd, then type your old one and two times the new one05:34
alex___iceroot: I did05:35
apoleo12ubottu: ok ill repeat it then05:35
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:35
mazda01_iceroot: i find aptitude to better at installed dependencies than apt-get. i have been aptitude for a long time versus apt=get05:35
alex___iceroot: and they are different... but apparently it thinks they aren't05:35
apoleo12Why are the characters are different in bash than in Xwindows bash?05:35
dpreachermazda01_ got timestamps from /var/log/messages05:35
lstarnesapoleo12: what do you mean by that?05:35
mazda01_dpreacher: what about time stamps?05:35
icerootmazda01_: apt-get moo   vs aptitude moo -v   you will see what is better (aso try -vv -vv and so on) :)05:36
dpreachertimestamp syslog adds at the instant the entry is logged05:36
icerootmazda01_: -vv -vvv -vvvv and so on i mean05:36
mazda01_apoleo12:  what do you mean different characters, can you upload an image to imageshack and share with us>05:36
dpreachermazda01_ timestamp syslog adds at the instant the entry is logged05:36
apoleo12When Im in xterm (bash) and type some command containing these characters as [] {} \ etc etc... but when I go into bash pressing  ctrl+alt f2 then those chars are all over the place05:36
dpreacherthanks mazda01_ for your time05:37
darlykaisermazda_01: how can i install ubuntu 8.10 over 9.04?05:37
mazda01_no one uses smb://  to connect to a password protected share that has punctuation in it?05:37
apoleo12mazda01: ok IIll do that way... but it going to take a bit... brb then05:37
icerootdarlykaiser: as i told you, insert the 8.10 cd and choose the partition from 9.04 to install on05:37
rojasok now i install gparted05:37
icerootdarlykaiser: it will override 9.0405:38
mazda01_darlykaiser: just pop in the 8.10 install cd, and go through the install process and just chose to use the hard drive you want by deleting the old partitions and creating new ones. simple.05:38
rojasand it says that i have to be root05:38

mazda01__neozonz:  np. the default config works out of the box I am pretty sure, you can change the values to make it more strict if you want. like you can make it so after 2 failed attempts it will add the offending ip to the hosts.deny file. just check out /etc/denyhosts.conf. i think that's what the file is named.05:53

phreak_gane, what is the exact make and model of the webcam?06:07
mazda01__phreak_: what do you mean, songbird is an app I installed.06:07
mazda01__phreak_: i asked him that. don't know if he answered though06:07
The_Warlocki am unable to access ubuntuforums on my firefox06:07
Interphasewell that's ironic06:07
iFuzophreak_: Which is what I just said. You can use the .deb download and install it than you can view it via sounds & video06:07
ibuclawFruktsoda, actually ... then boot into the Windows Installer CD and you should see a 'Recovery Mode'06:07
mazda01__stea: apparently not. did you run that command I asked you to run?  lsmod | grep ath_pci06:07
ganephreak_, its a "creative live cam Video IM pro"06:07
uknowcan any one help me install with display problems06:08
phreak_Oh ok. sorry. i just thought it was easier to run the executable06:08
Neroonwizzo50: So you inserted your vista disc, started up virtual box and that was the error?06:08
ibuclawFruktsoda, I can't remember the exact command in Windows, but I think you run:  fixmbr06:08
mazda01__uknow: what kind of display problems?06:08
phreak_Do they have a .deb for songbird now?06:08
ganephreak_, the model no is  VF023006:08
wizzo50No, I didn't have the disc in. Is that what I need to do?06:08
mazda01__ibuclaw: fixmbr will fix the mbr so that it boots using windows boot manger again I am ptetty sure.06:09
bodhizazencariboo907 ?06:09
ibuclawmazda01, aye06:09
uknowi cant see my login screen after boot monitor say mode not supported  but when i type in user and pass it login and i can see the desktop06:09
Neroonwizzo50: How do you expect to install a system if you dont put it in your disc tray?06:09
ibuclawbodhizazen, :)06:09
DVA5912how do i go about making a user part of the webserver stuff? i installed an ftp server got it using the system usernames and ive created a new webmaster account. got it linked to its user direcorty of var/www but apperantly it cant do anything. So i guess im asking how do i give it permission06:09
DVA5912Neroon: hard disk cloning:D06:09
Neroonwizzo50: Virtual Box is trying to look for a bootable disk06:09
steamazda01 : i typed that command like you said "lsmod | grep ath_pci" and nothing happened06:10
mazda01__gane: here ya go: http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-607309.html06:10
wizzo50Neroon: I already installed it I thought06:10
uknowi think i have the wrong driver for my card06:10
ZajjkoWhat if a wireless network-adapter (USB-stick) is recognized, connects to my wireless network, gets an IP, can PING to another computer on the network but cannot PING to an external address and cannot access neither webpages nor the routers web-configuration utility?06:10
mazda01__stea: ok. type modprobe ath_pci and tell me what happens. you might need to run it with sudo in front06:10
DVA5912ive added the user to the www-data group but that didnt help06:10
ZajjkoThis works on a wired connection on the same computer, btw06:10
phreak_gane, check this post --> http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-607309.html06:11
mazda01__Zajjko: it's because your dns servers aren't defined.06:11
mazda01__phreak_: beat ya to it. ha he ha he06:11
ZajjkoI've opened resolv.conf and added "nameserver (my isp's DNS-servers)06:11
Neroonwizzo50: Hm. You sure about it? Well. Let's start again: You start up Virtual Box, select your installed os (vista) and start it?06:11
ganephreak_, ok ,after checking, i ll be back ..06:11
savidI noticed that my laptop has been getting extremely hot.  Ubuntu doesn't seem to be controlling the fan correctly. Any ideas on what I can do to fix it?06:11
phreak_mazda01 lmao. I didnt notice06:11
talsemgeestI have a lot of txt files in a directory, named 001.txt, 002.txt... 220.txt. Is there any way I can remove the leading zeroes from the front of the file names?06:11
DVA5912delladuck it being a noob hacker06:11
steamazda01 : both commands in terminal don't do anything for me06:11
mazda01__Zajjko: that's weird that it works on the wired connection but not the wireless connection. what does cat /etc/resolv.conf return??06:11
wizzo50Neroon: I put the disc in and loaded THe Virtual Box and got the same error06:12
Zajjkoat first it only returned "nameserver (my routers IP)"06:12
mazda01__talsemgeest: there is a bulk renamer in xubuntu. let me find out what the command is, one second.06:12
Neroonwizzo50: Just a sec. Havent installed VB here, need to start my other pc06:12
bodhizazen'lo ibuclaw =)06:12
Zajjkomazda01__: Then I tried editing it and add my isps' DNS-addresses as well06:12
mazda01__Zajjko: yeah, that can be a problem as some routers don't properly forward dns reqeuests properly. I always use opendns in my resolv.conf file06:13
wizzo50Neroon: Right after I put the Vista disc in, it made an Icon on my desktop called UDF Volume06:13
wizzo50Neroon: ok06:13
ibuclawbodhizazen, been using your flamethrower today?06:13
mazda01__Zajjko: did that work?06:13
DVA5912what group do i have to be in, in order to write/read to /var/www06:13
bodhizazenOh yes ibuclaw , I do so like roasted coffee beans =)06:13
uknowanyone know if its possible to install a sis mirage 3 video chipset06:13
Zajjkomazda01__: Do you mean using openDNS or the ping requests? (I'm at work currently, sorry - not at the actual computer)06:14
steamazda01 : will updating to 8.10 Help?06:14
bodhizazenDVA5912, sudo -i or www-data06:14
mazda01__Zajjko: you can also add dns servers in your interfaces file located in /etc/network/  . i think you add them like this: dns-nameservers  after your other interfaces info06:14
DVA5912bodhizazen: well its already part of www-data. and its not getting sudo06:15
mazda01__Zajjko: i mean I use opendns dns servers as shown in my previous post. they are in the interfaces file as well as the resolv.conf file.06:15
Zajjkoahh, so you have to add DNS:es to both the resolv.conf and interfaces?06:15
DellaDuckDVA5912: Can you please stop spam me in Q.06:16
mazda01__Zajjko: you shouldn't have to but I have and I don't have a problem with dns resolution06:16

lstarnesduckwars_: you should be able to.  What was he error?06:17
Zajjkomazda01__: Thanks! I'll try that when I get home. The weird thing is that wired connections work. However, that could still be an issue with DNS-forwarding from the router and that it just has issues with forwarding them on the wireless interface06:17
Ghoti__DVA5912:  DellaDuck: this isn't the place for interpersonal spats. Please take it outside.06:17

DVA5912im used to pidgin so... Ive used it for two years now06:26
JeruvyThe_Warlock: can you pastebin your 'ifconfig' output ?06:26
rojasim wating your answer06:26
lstarnesDVA5912: I'd recommend a more secure protocol than ftp, such as sftp or ssh06:26
lstarnesDVA5912: what are the permissions on /var/www?06:26
steamazda01, i didnt know it was going to be this confusing... i just found out how to upgrade to 8.10 and am starting that right now.06:27
mazda01__stea: what does ifconfig return?06:27
DVA5912lstarnes: ssh? i can copy files over via ssh?06:27
lstarnesDVA5912: scp and sftp are both tools used for copying files via ssh06:27
lstarnesDVA5912: there's also rsync06:27
mazda01__stea: ok but if you're going to upgrade, just go all the way to jaunty while you're at it as they fixed many issues with pulseaudio and I am sure the wireless support only gets better.06:27

mazda01__zahid: ah, that's not a local folder then. have you followed a guide on using NFS?06:28
steai just searched the forum trying to find an answer on this...06:28
zahidmazda01: i have searched much but all invain06:29
rojashow can i mount windos partition of windos in xubuntu please?06:29
mazda01__stea: i already gave you the link for using that wifi card and ubuntu. it deals with compiling madwifi drivers from scratch or using ndiswrapper.06:29
The_WarlockJeruvy: i thought the IP was a IP v406:29
rojaswindows partition in xubuntu sorry06:29
The_Warlockhow do i enable it?06:29
mazda01__rojas: are you sharing a folder on windows? do you have simple file sharing on or not. is it winxp or what?06:30
JeruvyThe_Warlock: try 'sudo ifup eth0'06:30
steamazda01 - thanks for your help. that looks like a very tedious thing !06:30
steamazda01, really thanks though for the patience06:30
The_Warlockbut i am able to access the net06:30

zahidmazda01: will you like to give me the link about nfs06:31
rojasyes its xp, i am really novate in linux, how can i know ifim shaing a folder06:31
mazda01__stea: you shouldn't be scared at compiling from source. it's part of linux sometimes. this would be a perfect to dive in. just follow it step by step and i am sure it'll work out for you. i remember the first time I compiled from source. I was so scard and it turned out to be so easy.06:31
JeruvyDessan: but it is not up06:31
DVA5912better yet. how do i add my user to group www-data06:31

lstarneseither should work06:32
mazda01__rojas: if you don't know if you're sharing a folder in winxp then I don't know if I can help. have you goggled this? it's merely right clicking on a folder in windows explorer and going to sharing and security and telling it to share the folder and allowing everyone either read only access or write access or whatever you want.06:32

blognewbIs Google APps free? like postfix?06:38
mazda01__zahid:  if you defined your exports file on the NFS server, then just define your fstab entries on the client. something like : /media/500gb/recordings nfs rsize=8192,wsize=8192,timeo=14,intr06:38

duckwars_Following the instructions for basic Authentication found here http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/howto/auth.html06:40

duckwars_"These directives may be placed in a .htaccess file in the particular directory being protected, or may go in the main server configuration file, in a <Directory> section, or other scope container."06:41
Dessanblognewb, Thats my point, you do own it if you host it locally. Google owns your data if you use Apps06:41

blognewblstarnes: i couldnt speak yet via defocus06:42
bodhizazenIf you have root access, probably best to put it in apache config rather then use .htaccess, imo06:42
duckwars_well what I did was, I put soft links in /var/www which are links to files on a USB hard drive connected to the server06:42
duckwars_symbolic links06:42
lstarnesblognewb: just wait a few minutes06:42
mazda01__zahid: what do you mean it doesn't work on server? the server is sharing out those folders.06:42

Flanneldiddy: edit your sudoers and set timestamp_timeout, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sudoers on editing sudoers (be *sure* to use visudo)07:45
mazda01__Mike94287:  hit ctrl-alt-F1, that will take you to a console, log in, then type sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop, then type sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start. that should restart you xorg, you may have to hit ctrl-alt-F7 but I don't think so.07:46

ScorpioDon't worry taruz the basics of the program consists of 19,622 components in which are diverted into smaller pixals to upload the frame-rate to perform optimal performance in such cases of inverted diagrams on a scale of perportioned value. Understand?08:43
taruzi have the nvidia config thing on system > administration08:44
ActionParsnipRavahan: you can always reboot if it goes weird08:44
ActionParsniptaruz: then run:  gksudo nvidia-settings08:44
lancerockehi all08:44
lancerockeim getting no grub options08:44
ActionParsniptaruz: if it says you arent running any drivers thn run: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-18008:44
ActionParsniptaruz: and reboot08:44
lancerockeit just automatically boots into ubuntu08:45
taruzi have the nvidia-glx-180 installed08:45
RavahanActionParsnip: Eh, looks like no.  I kinda expected this.. Just a command I used to stop gmd earlier when I was installing some NVIDIA drivers (which was a big mistake >.<)08:45
ARMENIANwhy does xfce use 253 MB of ram whereas gnome uses 234?08:45
ActionParsniptaruz: cool08:45
lancerockesomeone here said http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=293180 'Place a # before the hidden option to see GRUB at boot time'08:45
RavahanActionParsnip: It refers to /etc/init.d/[process] it looks like08:45
lancerockebut i already have one there08:45
ActionParsniplancerocke: then edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and change the timeout to something longer08:45
taruzActionParsnip: i know, but it wont give me other resolutions other than 640 and 32008:46
RavahanActionParsnip: Any idea what command I could use to try and halt compiz?08:46
ScorpioTaruz: I beg to differ on Actionparsnip's theory of running ANY driver, you run the risk of completly frying the whole program with too many functions simultaneously running at once.08:46
ActionParsnipRavahan: metacity --replace &08:46
ActionParsnipScorpio: which program will be "fried"?08:47
lancerockeActionParsnip, i did and it doesnt work http://pastebin.com/m37e14b1008:47
=== mr is now known as Guest81051
ActionParsniplancerocke: ok,what if you cange the timeout to say 1008:47
RavahanActionParsnip: Well that certainly did something.  Let me see what happens when I boot PlayOnline... Also, what do I type to re-enable it?08:47
ActionParsnipRavahan: compiz --replace &08:48
ScorpioActionParsnip: that all depends on the main-frame of the mother board. It could just be a glitch of one's computer OR it could simply be a internal function embedded deep within the board to crash and destroy the program08:48
lancerockeok ill try it08:48
ActionParsnipRavahan: if you use alt+f2 you don't need '&'08:48
lancerocke## timeout sec08:48
lancerocke# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry08:48
lancerocke# (normally the first entry defined).08:48
FloodBot3lancerocke: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.08:48

lancerockeActionParsnip, thanks brb08:49
RavahanActionParsnip: Still, something learned!08:49
ActionParsnipScorpio: so which program will it "fry", you havent quantified it yet08:49
gogeta< hate wine08:51
Cronosall people hate wine but we useit :P08:52
RavahanActionParsnip: So what does that command actually do?  Replace the compiz process with a different windows manager?08:52
mOrO^gogeta: Just goes along with hating M$08:52
RavahanWell, Wine would be totally awesome if I could just get it to work08:53

ActionParsnipRavahan: depends which game08:54
Boohbahcube|hospital: it should work, but there's only one way to find out08:54
ScorpioActionparsnip: to name a few, Automatix, Beagle, Gnome Deskbar Applet, VLC, Firefox, amaroK, CheckGmail, Add NTFS Read/Write support, XGL/Compiz = Purdiest08:54
Cronosisnt cedega or something call like that to run ms games on linux08:55
BoohbahRavahan: you may check the wine application db for compatibility with your app http://appdb.winehq.org/08:55
ActionParsnipScorpio: so installing nvidia drivers via apt will damage ntfs-3g?08:55
DJonesRavahan: The best place to ask about games/wine would be in #winehq the people there should be the best ones to help you08:55
RavahanActionParsnip: Well, I'm trying at the moment to get FFXI to run.  Its the top listed app in appdb's Gold list, so I'm thinking it /should/ work08:55
ActionParsnipScorpio: i doubt that heavily08:55
cube|hospitalBoohbah: lol which is? just trying it out?08:55
ActionParsnipRavahan: make sure you use wine from the wine repo: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb08:55
Boohbahcube|hospital: yes08:55
RavahanActionParsnip: I got Wine through Synaptic-- no good?08:55
lancerockeActionParsnip, thanks that worked but what if i wanted it to automatically show me the grub menu list and not boot to anything unless i chose?08:55
ActionParsnipRavahan: if you scroll down the app in appd, you will see hints on files you may need to place on your system from the web08:56

ActionParsnipRavahan: read the appdb entry, maybe someone is having the same issue08:57
RavahanActionParsnip: Someone who had a similar issue suggested it might be DirectX issues... So I googled some instructions to get DirectX9 installed and did those too08:57
ActionParsnipRavahan: you don't install directx9 in wine08:57
RavahanActionParsnip: So now I've got a bunch of DLLs set to Native (Windows)08:57

SlartSpikemcc: why not use the minimal install and go from there... install what you need09:44
icerootSpikemcc: minimal or alternate is fine09:45
jribspeedhunt3r: because by default when you create an ext3 partition 5% is reserved for root09:45
ActionParsnipdam0: look at the board itselffor markings, one will tell you what board it is and you can wesearch it or ead to the manufacturers site09:45

Spikemccyep but I think to use a repository or something more suited to softwares I need no more no less got an idea ?09:46
dahliaActionParsnip, there are no resolutions in that file at all09:46

ActionParsnipdahlia: then run:   gksudo nvidia-settings09:46
jribspeedhunt3r: use tune2fs, search its man page for the word "reserved"09:46
speedhunt3rjrib, the funny thing is it happened one day after updates...it wasn't like this before09:46

GSF1200Smaybe that will tell you something beyond the panic message.. maybe not11:13
GSF1200Showever, you could delete the new kernel and try again- maybe force apt to only upgrade the kernel and headers11:14
