alex87thanks ActionParsnip, i'll give it a shot01:06
faryshtaActionParsnip, I have already the hard drive partitioned. But the grub only takes on account one partition to boot.01:06
webpigeonsebsebseb, oh hai o/01:06

webpigeonsebsebseb, https://launchpad.net/~gezakovacs/+archive/ppa01:07
crungesebsebseb: excellent. Thanks for the pointer01:07
ActionParsnipfaryshta: true, but you use grub to boot any other partition after that01:07
sebsebsebfaryshta: I think your issue is, because  Fedora uses LVM, and Ubuntu don't, and  now  Ubuntu's  Grub  can't find your Fedora install01:08
BlasenMichwell whomever it was, my video looks good... thanks so much for the help01:08
ActionParsnipfaryshta: you would need to repartition, virtual systems will show how the system runs on virtual hardware01:08
crungesebsebseb: I'm building a low-power embedded router firewall. All the storage is on a compact flash card01:08

devilWhat I can do to see the wireless networks availables01:14
ActionParsnipsebsebseb: its still entirely possible01:14
sebsebsebActionParsnip: also if your going to have more than one OS on the same computer,  it's better to be able to run them both at the same time, yep virtual machine01:14

sebsebsebasddasdas: ok so your  basically confussed as to where Grub is meant to go, hence why your asking these questions?01:33
cooper77zI knew it was popular01:33
dameonThere's a heck of a lot more ram than that in this machine; it's a second-hand server from a company that went under years ago.  They beefed up the system; all the ram slots are filled.  The POST checks and verifies all 448 MB of ram, and i've reconfigured the BIOS several times so i'm sure it's reading all the ram.01:33

cooper77zI don't understand the difference between irc and instant messaging in pidgin01:41
renicActionParsnip: I have static IPs set on the machine now, but they do not appear there.01:41
Lostinspace_46asddasdas windows is very selfish about the MBR, and if installed second it wipes out grub01:41
DekkoBruce89 Thanks!!01:41
b0nnhmm, I want to set up an ssh tunnel, but I don't want the forwarding part to be to a single address, I want it to be to any address01:41
bruce89cooper77z: IRC is this, IM is from one person to another01:41
Paavi2_0cooper77z: is that a problem?01:41
blackest_knightdameon:  check your memory with the memtest on the ubuntu cd , given that even with windows not recognising the ram , it sounds like a hardware issue.01:42
ActionParsniprenic, if you use network manager then i do not know where they are stored01:42
cooper77zoh, so in irc you don't know who you are talking to, but in pidgin you do?01:42
renicActionParsnip: that's my problem too :( --- :)01:42
bruce89cooper77z: well, IRC is to more than one person usually01:43
Paavi2_0cooper77z: pidgin is a program, not a protocol. and with pidgin you can do im (instant messaging) and irc (internet relay chat)01:43
dameonblackest_knight: i've done the memtest, and it's all ok...  it only shows 16 MB though01:43
Dekkobruce89 is <M> = Mandatory?01:43

bruce89Dekko: modules01:43
Dekkobruce89: Ah okay :)01:43
ActionParsnipcooper77z: irc is like chat rooms or channls on an irc server, yuo can chat one on on on irc too01:43
DekkoThank you again for your help. Its the first time I am trying to compile a kernel here.01:44
ActionParsnipcooper77z: with IM protocols like yahoo and msn you chat one on one01:44

Lostinspace_46Hi all. I am running Jaunty. I am having a problem with my xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml file.  Some of the properties work fine, and others don't work at all. Shouldn't they ALL either work or not since they are all in the same file (which contains most all of System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts)?01:47
pelmendameon: well pull all out, leave 1 stick try. works - add one more and continue01:47
trakcyiaoh i got it01:47
NefariousTedI was told you folks might be able to help01:47
sebsebsebNefariousTed: what is the challenge?01:47
boss_mcLostinspace_46: unless something else is capturing the keys before xfce gets them...01:47
n2diyI have two users on my test box, what is the simplest way to share a's bookmarks with b?01:47
Lostinspace_46trakcyia  what worked for you?01:47
NefariousTedsee, I'm trying to get ubuntu onto my desk top.01:47
NefariousTedI don't know how, and have been trying to for the past 2 days.01:48

renicdoes anyone know where the network manager stores it's settings?01:48
n2diy! xmarks01:48
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about xmarks01:48
NefariousTedit's not as cut and dry as one might think though. My computer has no disc drive, and will not connect to the internet.01:48
dameonpelmen:  I might try that... But i'll be here for ever :)01:48
VCoolion2diy: export bookmarks to html, import with user2? or copypaste the file if you can find it (.mozilla/firefox/blah.default/??)01:48
n2diySeronis: what are xmarks?01:48
pelmendameon: common it's only 16 slots :)01:49
VCoolion2diy: xmarks is a plugin, works too01:49
boss_mcNefariousTed: got a USB > 1Gb and can the BIOS boot from USB?01:49
Seronisn2diy: its a browser plugin that manages your bookmarks between any number of installations01:49
sebsebsebNefariousTed: ok well in that case,   to be honest with you,   it's a bit pointless to have Ubuntu on your computer,  unless your going to do word proccessing and that's about it01:49
Seronismultiple logins across any number of computers.  great for syncing01:49
pelmendameon: even though bios shows all 450 does not mean, it correctly transfers (or whatever) them to OS01:49
NefariousTedSebsebseb:I'm trying to get ubuntu on there so I can make it connect to the internet, or at least see if i can like that.01:49
Lostinspace_46boss_mc well xfce Is more like naming keys rather than assigning them key codes01:49
dameonpelmen: yeah, but the cover has a power-kill, as in I need to reassemble the computer every time to test01:50

akSeyahi there.. i have an Acer Aspire 5920 notebook with Ubuntu 9.04 .. i have some problems with the Card Reader.. it just does not work01:50
pelmendameon: you can usually lock that one with screwdriver01:50
dameonpelmen:  i have no os...01:50
n2diySeronis:ok, but the users are on the same box, couldn't I just put a copy of the bookmark file somewhere where both users would have access to it?01:50

Seronisxmarks maintains them current with each other01:50
dameonpelmen:  it'll take an awl with how long the pin is on the cover... and good point on the os....01:51
pelmendameon: i meant bios may not correctly transfer ram sizes to upper level01:51
NefariousTedI've tried booting from a usb, but it never works out.01:51
n2diyok, I'll check out xmarks, thanks.01:51
sebsebsebNefariousTed: no  CD and no USB,  and  no Internet,   and what no  local area network either?01:51
boss_mcLostinspace_46: yeah, so it's a higher level operation, there could be things underneath stealing the key presses...01:51
dameonpelmen:  is there a way to make it transfer?01:51
NefariousTedI have a flash drive, and I have a usb port01:52
NefariousTedit's just for some reason, it refuses to boot from the usb01:52
pelmendameon: i have no idea, that's why i told you to update bios..01:52
sebsebsebNefariousTed: well  unless you can get the USB working,  your  basically stuck with Windows,  I assume your computer currently runs Windows.   also is it really a netbook? with a small hard disk?01:52
NefariousTedNo, it's a desk top, running windows 7.01:52
boss_mcNefariousTed: can you take out the HD, install ubuntu on it from another pc and then replace it (ubuntu will sort out drivers etc automatically)01:52
pelmendameon: maybe your ram sticks have different speeds, even though it is not supposed to be a problem.. you neve know01:52
cooper77zhey pavvi, I am going to try the command out01:52
Lostinspace_46boss_mc like input.h?01:53
=== fophillipse is now known as fophillips
dameonpelmen: i've tried updating it multiple times... and the different speeds could be a problem... hadn't thought of that01:53
cooper77zIt didn't do anything, I think I did it wrong01:53
NefariousTedBoss_MC: how would I go about doing that?01:53
NefariousTedI gather the "take out hard drive, connect to other computer." bit01:53
NefariousTedoh, wait.01:53
NefariousTednvm, it made sense all of a sudden.01:54
boss_mcNefariousTed: :)01:54
pelmendameon: that's also why i told you to remove the first, original stick, as I guess that one is old01:54
cooper77zI typed"/whois i.e /whois Paavi2_0"01:54
cooper77zit did nothing01:54
NefariousTedI could to that, but it would be less immediate than I'm looking for.01:54
Lostinspace_46boss_mc usr/include/linux/input.h01:54
bruce89cooper77z: just the /whois Paavi2_0 would work01:54

dc-davei do not want to boot to xp, i want to run xp inside ubuntu with virtualbox01:56
cooper77zpress tab, got nothing01:57
bruce89dc-dave: You need the CD or ISO of the thing you want to install, and you just assign it to a virtual drive in VB01:57
cooper77zoh start with the first few letters, duh01:57
aranddc-dave: mount the iso in the vm, or use a physical xp cd and connecti it to the vm, then install xp as you would on a physical comp.01:57
Lostinspace_46boss_mc OK, gonna run and do come checking, that would explain the problem..never thought of stolen keys..thanks01:57

Jaredusebsebseb, you can, ive done it :D02:06
Edson`it was a while ago, don't have it now, i was just checking02:06
uber_noobersebsebseb: question was if there was dx support in ubuntu02:06
sebsebsebuber_noober: right, but  Edson`  probably meant if there was in any of the programs that can be installed in Ubuntu02:07
JareduEdson`, it's definitely possible, I'd say if it hangs at a black screen just make sure compiz is off, i haven't tried it in awhile though but for me it was just a straight install in wine02:07

nomasteryodauber_noober, do you hook it up with a cat5 cable...? if so, then surely it emulates some form of printer you can choose in Linux02:16

bruce89evanescent: it usually is nowadays, X doesn't need a xorg.conf usually02:56
labeaucan i delete the old one ?02:56
evanescentI want to change the acceleration method being used for my graphics card02:56
evanescenti have an intel integrated graphics card02:56
ibuclawlabeau, once you've moved over the Hard Disk image, it should all be good to go :)02:56
evanescenti'm trying to follow: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/intel-graphics-performance-guide-for-ubuntu-904-jaunty-users.html02:56
ColbyIsColbyhey ibuclaw, would you happen to know anything about Xubuntu, or would I need to go to the Xubuntu irc channel.02:57
labeauthanks have good day nite mor .... labeau off02:57
ibuclawColbyIsColby, it's minimal, but I know my way around the system =)02:57
ibuclawbye labeau02:57
ColbyIsColbywell, i just need your opinion.02:57
bastidrazorRuneMaximus, ask in channel please.. either you are not using sudo apt-get or yo uhave more than one instance of a package manager open02:57
evanescentI really just want to enable 'Option “AccelMethod” “UXA”'02:57
bluntman225hey guys, how can i set up my wireless network to accept dhcp02:57
bruce89evanescent: AFAIK you need to create the appropriate section in the empty file02:58
bluntman225or how do I edit my wireless settings...I cant get my wireless to work02:58
bastidrazorRuneMaximus, do sudo apt-get install irssi02:58
ColbyIsColbyi have an old iMac DV with a 500MHz (G3) PPC Processor, and 128MB RAM.02:58
renicDarwinSurvivor: is network manager running on the the netbook?02:58
DarwinSurvivorrenic: yes02:58
ColbyIsColbywould I be fine installing Xubuntu, or should I try Debian.02:58
evanescentI tried that and ubuntu starts into a low graphics mode02:58
RuneMaximusthank bastidrazor that seems to be working02:59
evanescentthe tutorial is supposedly confirmed to work for my exact graphics card so I think there's something about just adding the information to the xorg.conf file thats causing problems02:59
ibuclawColbyIsColby, you should be fine ... Ubuntu has a PPC version in ports02:59
renicDarwinSurvivor: If i had to guess (which I'm doing), i would disable it and setup networking manually... network manager already screwed me today, so i'm prejudice... ;D02:59

ColbyIsColbyI have the alternate install CD for 9.04 PPC and I have been debating to install it.03:00
=== jared is now known as Guest91381
ColbyIsColbybecause reinstalling OS X because Xubuntu is too slow is too much of a pain.03:00
DarwinSurvivorrenic: I would, but until the machine is ready for production, it needs to be used on many wireless networks (making command line setup quite annoying)03:00
Guest91381Hey, can anyone help me set up a terminal button involving xwinwrap? I have a neat setup for it but I can't seem to make a launcher button- it works fine in a normal terminal.03:00

JareduHey, can anyone help me set up a terminal button involving xwinwrap? I have a neat setup for it but I can't seem to make a launcher button- it works fine in a normal terminal.03:01
Jaredusorry about the guest name thing03:01
ColbyIsColby/msg nickserv03:01
renicDarwinSurvivor: my idea was to use that method for testing if network manager is the problem.. If it is, there's probably a way to write a solution in a shell script.03:01
ibuclawColbyIsColby, the mini.iso is here: http://ports.ubuntu.com/dists/jaunty/main/installer-powerpc/current/images/powerpc/netboot/mini.iso03:01
Jareduanyone have any ideas?03:01
renicDarwinSurvivor: or patch network manager if you have a coder handy.03:01

ubottuLo_Pan: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.03:01
ibuclawColbyIsColby, the minimal boot installer should give you /every/ option to choose from on installation (including the choice to load aptitude and manually select packages).03:02
bruce89surely not03:02
ColbyIsColbyAptitude? Sorry, I am kind of new to this..03:02
ibuclawso you can tailor what packages / tasks you want installed before you boot the machine.03:02
JareduHey, can anyone help me set up a terminal button involving xwinwrap? I have a neat setup for it but I can't seem to make a launcher button- it works fine in a normal terminal.03:02
ColbyIsColbyoh okay.03:02
ibuclawColbyIsColby, aptitude is a frontend to apt-get03:02
DarwinSurvivorrenic: what did you use instead of network manager (cli, wicd, etc)?03:02
ibuclawColbyIsColby, are you booted into Ubuntu at the moment ?03:03
ColbyIsColbyUhhm, no. I am on the machine I want to install Xubuntu on.03:03
MamonceteHi all03:03
DarwinSurvivorJaredu: did you check the "run in terminal" box in the launcher preferences?03:03
nivekc1can anyone please help me.. i am wanting to watch a movie on my PC but for some reason i put in the disc and it doesnt work.. it is a dvd psych season 3 i just bought it and it works in my dvd player03:03
JareduDarwinSurvivor, where would that be? I haven't worked with this in awhile and the last time i tried was in 8.10, one sec03:03
ColbyIsColbyWhat do you recomend me making sure I install?03:04
MamonceteI want to buy a server machine, but I saw that raid HD and controllers are expensive. Do I need any special hardware/HDs in order to use RAID (software) in Ubuntu Server?03:04
mechtechsorry for yelling03:04
JareduDarwinSurvivor, for some reason that's not working... hmm03:04
mechtechcaps lock03:04
DarwinSurvivorJaredu: right-click the launcher, then select "Properties".  Change "Type" to "Application In Terminal"03:04
MamonceteOr can I just go with 4 SATA HD drives and Ubuntu server (Linux) through software cna emulate a RAID controller?03:04
bruce89ColbyIsColby: it depends what you want I suppose03:04
JareduDarwinSurvivor, the command i'm running is this: xwinwrap -ni -o 0.6 -fs -s -st -sp -b -nf -- mplayer -wid WID -quiet ~/Desktop/testlegs.avi -loop 0 -nosound -fs03:05
evanescentis there some way I can make X write its config to xorg.conf so i can modify it03:05
mechtechbut now I have an error message: wine: could not load L"C:\\windows\\system32\\link.exe": Module not found03:05
ColbyIsColbyWell, all I really need is a word processor (I guess I would use AbIWord), a desktop (duh), and anything else that's basic.03:05
ColbyIsColbyThis machine is kind of for school use.03:05
DarwinSurvivorJaredu: what happens when you click the launcher after changing the type?03:05
ColbyIsColbyand basic internet.03:05
ibuclawMamoncete, with RAID, all you need to ensure is that all disks spin at the same speed.03:05
bruce89ColbyIsColby: I was thinking more along the lines of stability03:06
ibuclawMamoncete, the rest can be done using software RAID03:06
JareduDarwinSurvivor, it does nothing.. when i open a terminal and paste in the exact same command it works fine03:06
JareduDarwinSurvivor, ive also tried putting it in startup and it does nothing =\03:06
isaac_Is there a program that will handle four or five CD burners at once to make multiple copies?03:06
isaac_Objective is to make copies of an audio cd.03:06
test34mechtech: did you mount your windows partition at the same mount point as when your created the link ?03:07
JareduDarwinSurvivor, i did just install gnome-do if that would change anything03:07
Mamonceteibuclaw, so if the 4 SATA HD drives that I purchase are the same, I assume that all of them will spin at the same speed, won't them?03:07
DarwinSurvivorat the end of the command, add " && sleep 10", that should cause the window to stay open for 10 seconds after the command fails, allowing you to debug it03:07
DarwinSurvivorJaredu: I use gnome-do myself and haven't had it mess anything up03:07
JareduDarwinSurvivor, kk one second03:07
DarwinSurvivorrenic: what connection manager do you use?03:07
renicDarwinSurvivor: I read this http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-set-a-static-ip-address-in-ubuntu-810-intrepid-ibex.html03:08
mechtechtest34: I made the link inside the windows partition...if that's what you mean03:08
ibuclawMamoncete, one would assume so. OEM manufacturers are usually more trustworthy though, but that is just my opinion. ;)03:08
JareduDarwinSurvivor, adding && sleep 10 does nothing, it opens a terminal breifly then crashes it03:08
DarwinSurvivorthat is VERY strange...03:08
DarwinSurvivorJaredu: that is VERY strange...03:08
JareduDarwinSurvivor, it worked fine in 8.10 or 8.04 im not sure what's changed :\03:09
renicDarwinSurvivor: haven't tested it yet though... so beware if you don't have physical access03:09
Mamonceteibuclaw, I can get 4 SATA 1Tera Maxtor HDs for the half of price of 1 RAID HAD 1 Tera, that is why I am asking, and also I have to pay for the RAID controller03:09
DarwinSurvivorrenic: unfortunately all my connections so far are wireless :( I guess I'll have to try out wicd. I used to use it, but didn't like the interface. But if it *works* then that's what I'll use03:10
isaac_Is there a program that will handle four or five CD burners at once to make multiple copies?03:10
isaac_Objective is to make copies of an audio cd.03:10
DarwinSurvivorisaac_: you could always just run 4 or 5 burning processes in parallel (start the program multiple times)03:11
SkiingPenguinsWhenever i try to install ubuntu 8.10 onto my windows me computer, using wubi, the installer asks to restart. the computer restarts and nothing has changed. wubi does not start up. can anyone help me with this?03:11
adam7DarwinSurvivor: there is a new interface in wicd 1.6, you can grab the deb from http://downloads.wicd.net/pkgs/latest03:11
evanescentis there a graphical frontend for changing xorg.conf in ubuntu 9.0403:11
renicDarwinSurvivor: should probably confirm that the problem is actually with network manager before abandoning it.03:11
evanescenti seem to recall one in 7.x03:11
isaac_DarwinSurvivor how many times can you do that before the computer locks up?03:11
ibuclawMamoncete, yes. You can buy 4 SATA drives, (ie: 4x 250GB, SATA, 3.5-inch, 7.2K RPM Hard Drive)03:12
DarwinSurvivoradam7: I'm assuming the "xUbuntu_9.04" will work for all ubuntu derivatives? (ubuntu/kubuntu/ubuntu netbook remix/etc)?03:12
adam7DarwinSurvivor: yup03:13
ibuclawMamoncete, and a RAID controller is essential03:13
ibuclawit's usually a RAID controller card, ie: PCIe03:13
Mamonceteibuclaw, ahhhhh, so I thought I could avoid the RAID controller and use the Linux software one03:13
DarwinSurvivorisaac_: as long as you don't start a second session for drive Foo before the previous ends, you should be fine03:13
Mamonceteibuclaw, that was my question03:13
gaston9Hola alguien me puede ayudar?03:14

* doc_brown messed up...03:46
qoshey guys ... can i use a karmic kernel still in jaunty?03:46
masterkoppai would recomend you try to reinstall the kernel, because I suspect there is a problem with one of the modules when the update occured.03:46
dtchenqos: yes, with caveats03:46
doc_brownhow do you restore a "panel" that you may have deleted?  When I minimize things, they disappear03:47
llohanby using --reinstall ?03:47
bastidrazor!panels | doc_brown03:47
ubottudoc_brown: To reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »03:47
doc_brown!moron doc_brown =(03:47
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)03:47
qosdtchen, what in special? currently i am using a mainline kernel ... wlan is much more stable here :)03:48
bastidrazordoc_brown, or you could add the panel back and manually add the window selector03:48
mechtechtest34: I executed the command you gave me...no success03:48
qosdtchen, but i my nvidia restricted drivers module doesn't work that way03:48
masterkoppallohan: yes03:48
mechtechtest34: still cannot launch link03:48
dfthow can I check if which ttys my serial port was assigned to?03:48
llohanmasterkoppa: thanks, I'm trying that.03:48
test34mechtech: did you adapt it to your system ?03:48
HayateYagami!luser ubottu03:49
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about luser ubottu03:49
qosdtchen, so the idea was it to use a karmic kernel in the hope of working nvidia drivers and stable wlan03:49
mechtechtest34: LOL...no...duh03:49
dtchenqos: you just need the hacks for i2c for the Nvidia source03:49
test34mechtech: where is your .exe located ?03:49
doc_browni removed that panel because it actually covers most of my wbar at the lower part of the screen.  can i adjust this?03:49
qosdtchen, i2c? a bit more explaining please ;)03:49
masterkoppallohan: If that then doesn't work I would do a downgrade to the last working version for your system. Then make a post in the kernel part of the forums since youll probably get better support there.03:49
johnnyfavoriteaIm a newbe to ubuntu studio03:50
dtchenqos: are you saying your Nvidia drivers don't compile with mainline
llohanmasterkoppa: ok, thank you very much.03:50
masterkoppallohan: np, glad to be of some help03:50
bastidrazordoc_brown, you can .. right click it >properties>general tab then uncheck expand03:50
llohani'm going to reboot once and will be back if that work, or i'll jet to my office if it doesn't, good bye.03:50
mechtechtest34: still no luck03:51
qosdtchen, i didn't try to compile them on my own. i installed the new mainline kernel and at startup ubuntu was complaining about "unable to load nvidia restricted module"03:51
test34mechtech: where is your .exe located ?03:51
dtchenqos: right, that's due to api changes03:51
doc_brownbastidrazor, i have something called wbar.  its similar to osx "dock"  at the lower portion of the screen.  my "panel" overlaps it and sits on top of it03:51
dtchenqos: you need a newer nvidia source (e.g., from karmic)03:52
doc_brownwbar looks and works great without the panel, but minimized programs disappear03:52
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about wbar03:52
mechtechtest34:  /home/leiza/.wine/dosdevices/c:/PuttPutt03:52
bastidrazordoc_brown, you'll either have to move the panel to the left or right vertical of the screen or get rid of the bottom panel. or .. move it up to the top under the top bar03:52
test34mechtech: that doesnt sound right03:52
qosdtchen, so. can i simply install the nvidia-glx packages and the kernel from karmic?03:53
BulochnichestvoIs there exist a plugin that encapsulates flash player plugin and displays button "GO" that enables or disables working of entire flash process?03:53
mechtechtest34:  with a link to the executable <Autozoo,exe> on the desktop03:53
test34mechtech: it should be located somewhere in /media/03:53
bastidrazordoc_brown, that dock .. doesn't it have active/minimized applications showing? something like cairo-dock does.03:53
bastidrazordoc_brown, cairo-dock actually replaces my bottom panel.03:53
nanzhi guys03:53
dtchenqos: no, you also need the kernel, kernel-headers, and other Nvidia-related packages from karmic03:54
qosdtchen, you don't have a list, don't u? ;)03:54

abolethvan: did you try any sound files that aren't mp3s?04:49
abolethvan: i'm trying to help you04:49
alex__jake_: Are you sure the problem isn't hardware side?04:49
MustangMattaboleth: You're wasting your time. lol04:50
vanyeees but same trouble04:50
abolethMustangMatt: probably :P04:50
jake_alex__: what do you mean?04:50
abolethvan: what types did you try?04:50
jake_oh i see04:50
alex__aboleth: What was your problem?04:50
jake_no because when i boot ubuntu up the fan was running and then it turned off04:50

jake_i am worried that i am going to break something with all of this running so hot04:50
vanalex bull sit04:51
alex__jake_: Have you checked to see if there is a way to make the fan run constantly in BIOS to try that?04:51
abolethvan: i asked you what other types of files you opened in it04:51
alex__van: ?04:51
jake_alex__: this is my first linux experiment and its only been about an hour04:51
vanmp3, mid, mov, dat, mpg, 3gp ect04:51
jake_EFI = Bios?04:51
abolethvan: and none worked?04:52
rambo298van have you tried Google?04:52
vanof course, how must i tell u, sit man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!04:52
alex__jake_: BIOS is when you first turn your computer on, when it says something like "Press Delete to enter BIOS setup" or something... I've never used a mac so I can't be more specific, sorry.04:52
abolethvan: do other players work?04:52
jake_its okay its just that macs dont use bios04:52
jake_also i did a full install not bootdisc04:52
jake_ill reboot and try04:53
Bob_DoleEFI= Extended Firmware Interface.. similar to BIOS as it deals with booting OSs and hardware stuff.. but it's what comes next, basically.04:53
alex__Bob_Dole: k, thanks.04:53
abolethvan: open up synaptic04:53
jake_anyone here have a macbook that has been converted to run ubuntu?04:53
vannow what04:53
abolethvan: hold on04:53
Bob_Dolealex__, when I say next, I mean, it's an evolution of the idea of a BIOS. It's a lot better, but not well supported by microsoft so it hasn't been used widely in PCs04:54
Bob_Dolejake_, I have an iMac that runs ubuntu, but the broadcom wireless chip isn't supported.04:54

jake_due to overheating04:55
gogetajake_: overheating disbale acpi04:55
Bob_Dolegogeta, sort of. There was issues with BIOS, so they made EFI to solve them. it's a lot more feature complete. jake_ I have issues with the fans being too slow. I had to boot into OS X and set the fans on high with a third party app. the settings carried over into ubuntu.04:55
abolethvan: ok i think i found it04:56
abolethclick search04:56

zerothisPROject-Emerald: it should be in Applications>System Tools> and called "Sun xVM VirtualBox" or in xubuntu Applications>System>05:38
PROject-EmeraldAh. ok.05:38
PROject-Emeraldthere is definitely no system tools.05:38
PROject-Emeraldall I have is Applications.05:39

trollboyI've hit the forums and found some other modems with the same chipset on there, and made a /etc/udev/rules.d/ rule05:41

Flannel!nfs | b__06:39
ubottub__: nfs is the network file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo for information on installing and configuring NFS.06:39
emilybut if you want fast you need to set up nfs and export out the dirs.  if you want to go stupid, you could set up a ciffs server or samba..make it look like a windows box..but then it will basically suck06:39

b__What's the difference in ssh and nfs?06:40
emilyssh is encrypted tunnell...you can do anthing through ssh.06:40
Flannelb__: ssh allows you to use a remote shell, nfs is a filesystem thing.06:40
emilyit will even allow you to run the apps on the other box...from your machine06:41
b__So ssh is more useful06:41
emilyverymuch so06:41
b__nfs is easier?06:41
emilyall remote admin is done via ssh..06:41
Flannelb__: They accomplish different things.06:41

jahcI want to run scalpel on it06:44
emilyvnc is not nfs06:44

emilynfs is for file shareing.06:45
b__can you drag and drop with vncviewer?06:45
b__cuz that would be amazing06:45
sebsebsebb__: it's not for file sharing06:45
emilyif you are going to put all your movies in the house on one server you would use an nfs server06:45
emilyno but you can with nfs06:45
emilyand more importantly you can with ssh06:46
losherjahc: sudo df -h /home06:46
sebsebseband you can with samba as well,  Linu to Linux even06:46

emilysamba sucks06:46
emilydo you have the ssh servers installed yet06:46
sebsebsebemily: well  kind of since the link to Microsoft, but  have you got any other reason?06:46
emilyyep servera06:47
sebsebsebemily: such as?06:48
b__yes ssh is installed on both06:48
emilyfirst of smb protocol chokes on 2gig+files...so you have to use the cifs protocol...second the 30000 dollar file servers i use at work...charge an amazing amount of lisc for nfs lisc..you know why...because nfs over copper is faster than even fiber.06:48
emilyand the nfs you use on linux systems is the same thing as the nfs used by netapp fillers.06:49
emilyand trust me..those people know what they are doing06:49
mr_steveThe good part about SSH is that you can connect to another machine from the Places menu in Gnome, and it Just Works(TM)06:49
b__so how do I connect them with ssh?06:50
emilydont argue with me on this...its ssh for simple things...its nfs if things are large or need to be moved fast.  end of story.  you only use smb or cifs if you have to share windows file systems.06:50
emilyok now this is the difficult part06:50
emilyopen a file browser window...like your home dir06:50

emilyb__: sounds like there is no server on it07:29
ownerNevertheless, I love the open office07:29
losherakSeya: re: the nic stuff, are you sure nothing loads it. A syntax error in your interfaces file will make it look like it's not loading. What happens when you run sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart by hand?07:29
akSeyalosher, iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules        there too or is there a "beautifull" way?07:29
emilyalso b__ are you putting the user name on that as well...07:29
akSeyalosher, nothing happens.. leme check again07:30
losherakSeya: running it from rc.local is beautiful enough for me...07:30
b__yes it works in one direction07:30
emilythe server has to be installed on both boxes07:30
nomad77dahlia: normally but depends on your setup.alsa uses pulse-audio iirc altho it works standalone too. or rather pulse-audio can use alsa07:30
emilyif you want it to go the other way the server has to be installed on the other box as well07:30
dahliaty nomad7707:31
emilyits a werid thing and ill never understand why but all distros that are debian based no longer install the ssh server by default.  (ever since version etch of debian)07:31
akSeyalosher, my eth0 just do not goes up07:32
nomad77dahlia: gnome-2.2.6 default uses pulse-audio so ubuntu does07:32
b__right I'll get on that later, that's it... I'm all shhed out.... Guiness? Why yes I think I would like one. Bye.07:32
Flannelemily: Because most people don't need ssh sitting on their machine, and, especially when they aren't aware of it, it's a potential security risk.07:32
emilyso you have to install the server manually.  (this means via apt-get, aptitude, synaptic(for you freaks that have to have nice fonts and werid windows around things)07:32

artillerytxtherealpxc: the only problem is i can't really install anything on this computer since it has no network connection07:46
losher!ask | sinan07:47
ubottusinan: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)07:47
sinanDoes Ubuntu have some restrictions against "dangerous" countries like Kuba, Iran... ?07:47
Boohbahartillerytx: USB thumb drive transport?07:47
artillerytxBoohbah: how would i do that exactly ?07:47
therealpxcartillerytx: How are you connected right now? Or is this a different machine? I remember almost a year ago using NDISwrapper for Broadcom wifi drivers, but AFAIK Ubuntu will handle the drivers automatically for you now. It does need an inet connection though.07:47
artillerytxtherealpxc: different machine os x07:48
Boohbahartillerytx: download the files you need using your working computer, copy to thumb drive, mount thumb drive on no-net computer, profit!07:48
therealpxcartillerytx: Try getting a wired connection on that laptop, and running Jockey (Hardware drivers in the system menu), or manually run "gksu jockey-gtk"07:48
artillerytxBoohbah: but where can i get the drivers07:48
sinanA linux distro developer said me that07:48
artillerytxtherealpxc: it is wired its actually a server07:49
mataksi need help07:49
Boohbahartillerytx: search for your exact chipset as output by 'lspci' or 'lsusb'07:49
artillerytxBoohbah: i have and i can't find anything07:49
loshersinan: the US government has export restrictions on certain software to certain countries. I haven't kept up with the details. And the US isn't the only country that matters (but don't tell them that)07:49
Gneasinan: as a general rule of thumb, no, although acts and methods of terrorism and the mis-treatment of others are thoroughly discouraged here.07:50
mataksi have a fresh install ubuntu 9.4 somehow my resolution is too low.. can someone help me.. newbie here07:50
artillerytxBoohbah: i found the drivers on dells website but i don't know how to apply them to ubuntu07:50
therealpxcartillerytx: The wired broadcom ethernet doesn't work? Weird weird. You can definitely get it to work, but if I were you I'd just buy another freaking Ethernet card for your server. Depends on if you have more time or money. :-P07:50
captaincrooksoreau i've just edited my xorg.conf file... it was blank... gonna try it now...07:50

therealpxcartillerytx: I think ndiswrapper is only designed for Wifi07:54
therealpxcartillerytx: Are you at all familiar with Linux networking utilities/commands?07:55
linuxim thinking im suppose to create a root file on the memory stick duo so when psp loads it recognize the new file07:55
loshersinan: you are correct, such decisions are usually not made by the distro, except note that some distros do deliberately exclude software that has copyright or licensing issues.07:55
Boohbahartillerytx: can you provide a link to the drivers you are using?07:55
ilya_Can I dial up from the Mini CD?07:56
therealpxcBoohbah: AFAIK, he's using the F/OSS drivers for a WIRED broadcom ethernet device07:56

Gnealinux: there seems to be discussion on the matter here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=40189007:56

sinanlosher: Recently I argued with a linux developer07:58
sinanlosher: he said that to me07:58
therealpxcartillerytx: I would do that if I were you. Try from a computer you know can connect to the internet to plug into the same cable you're using for your server to test the connection.07:58
sinanlosher: And he said the mono issue07:58
artillerytxtherealpxc: well when i go to network connections there is nothing there07:59

Boohbahhappy july 24th!08:00
therealpxcartillerytx: Boohbah's command might be a bit noisy. If way too much shit scrolls through the terminal, try just "lspci | grep Eth"08:00
therealpxcartillerytx: Also, try running ifconfig -a and see if there are any ethernet devices (eth0, eth1, etc)08:00

IledenHi! I'm trying to get my Radeon 9200 to work with 3d support by following the guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver, but while display is otherwise ok, there's no 3d support. 'lshw -C display' reports the display as "UNCLAIMED". My Xorg.0.log has only one error, which reads "(EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)". I'm wondering why it refers to NVidia driver, since I have a Radeon card - my previous card tha09:38

richardcavell_Guest92268: yes09:38
Guest92268richardcavell  then why are  .vob files divided into 1gb files09:39
richardcavell_Guest92268: probably to make them more manageable - for one thing, a 32 bit machine can't handle a file that's much bigger than that09:39
Guest92268gnea  then why are  .vob files divided into 1gb files09:39
GneaGuest92268: I don't know, that's a bit offtopic09:39
Spikemccrichardcavell sudo apt-get install linux-image (the latest stable kernel maybe not the one you want)09:39

csaba_smb.conf updated after I used swat09:42
Gneacsaba_: take a look at your config file itself, then take a look at the config file you pastebin'd09:42
Gneacsaba_: go through, make sure everything is set correctly via swat09:43
Sj4lut_Hm... I have gnome, and I've set dsl connection with sudo pppoeconf,... but it won't connect automatically the next boot, also when my dynamically IP has been changed it won't connect automatically... where can I set that my dsl connection will be triggered automatically?09:43
csaba_gnea: I am not sure what should I look for09:44
csaba_should I look swat or the smb.conf file09:44
Gneacsaba_: just start from the top and work your way down, all of the options are in the swat - if it's not logging in, then perhaps another setting was reset09:44

csaba_I do not understand what the point is here09:47
Neroonikonia: Did the ov511 compile without any errors for you?09:47
Gneacsaba_: the point is to check the general options to see what changed, so the xp client can login again.09:47
ikoniaNeroon: 1 error which i fixed09:48
IledenSpikemcc: is this documented somewhere that can be linked to, so the guide could relfect it?09:48
SpikemccIleden no on all ubuntu sites ...09:48
csaba_the difference is that I changed loglevel, and the lines are in different order now09:48
Neroonikonia: Da.., lot's of errors, and doesnt compile all through09:48
Gneacsaba_: that's the *ONLY* thing that changed?09:48
LeoneofKartagis, i don't know how to compile madwifi, i'm newbie, any other idea?09:48

tyler_hey whats a good gui ftp server for ubuntu?09:50
Spikemccbut as 8.04 and 8.10 most difference is the support, I choose 8.0409:50
KartagisLeoneof, use ndiswrapper, not madwifi09:50
moncky!best | tyler_09:51
ubottutyler_: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.09:51
csaba_hosts allow = 192.168.0. localhost now has a comma between them09:51

prospirethis is strange....search recursion in google and see did u mean?09:51
Sj4lut_So once again... pppoeconf won't really automatically connect dsl while boot. Why is that? Also when dynamic ip has b33n changed, it won't trigger again?09:51

IledenSpikemcc: anyway, thanks for the infromation.09:52
Spikemcctyler_ filezilla is well known09:52
tyler_i have filezilla but isnt that a ftp client and not a server?09:52
IledenSpikemcc: the guide does speak about an open source driver, though, not Catalyst (which I assume is ATI prorietary driver)09:52
Kartagistyler_, filezilla also has a server09:53
csaba_gnea: http://paste.ubuntu.com/229833/09:53
csaba_look here09:53
Iledentyler_: there are both filezilla client, and filezilla server09:53
SpikemccATI driver yes09:53
monckyIleden: isnt filezilla server windows only?09:53
tyler_Ileden: are they separeate apps or are they the same09:53
Iledentyler_: separate.09:53
Spikemccopen source driver is installed at start on 8.10 and 9.04 but it's not good ...09:54
Iledenmoncky: hem, could be right. I am a windows migrater, afert all, and haven't used filezilla server on linux09:54
Kartagistyler_, filezille server is windows only09:54
Gneacsaba_: hrm, it took out 'socket options'09:54
dahliais there a way I can use a 32 bit gstreamer with my 8.10 64 bit system?09:54
monckyIleden: yeah just had a look, tis windows only09:55
tyler_damn...any other ftp servers...im transferring terabytes of data over a network and windows keeps disconnecting...so im gonna try ftp09:55
csaba_gnea: like what?09:55
monckytyler_: try vsftp its not gui but is pretty simple to setup09:55
causasuiI have a USB hard drive and I'd like to make partitions with various linux/windows installer disc ISOs on it so I could boot whichever one easily. Is that possible? how?09:55
IledenSpikemcc: the guide lists "Full 3D support" for "9200 / rv280 based cards", and I understand it's talking about the open source "ati" driver09:55
monckytyler_: if you are transferring large ammounds of data you would be better with scp09:55
Ileden(or "radeon", to be exact - it seems "ati" is only a wrapper)09:56
monckytyler_: secure transfer protocol09:56
monckytyler_: scp tyler@localhost:/path/to/file tyler@remotehost:/destination/of/file09:56
Iledenmoncky, tyler_: ah, filezilla server is only for windows. sorry for the false info.09:57
csaba_gnea: now what?09:57
SpikemccIleden try ati catalyst 9.4 on ubuntu hardy heron 8.04.3 LTS09:58
monckytyler_: you will need to add some options ot that which I cant remeber right now check man scp for more info09:58
Gneacsaba_: okay, it also elminated the security type, so you'll need to go through to the GUI and change it back to user09:58
Gneacsaba_: that's probably what's preventing the login09:58
csaba_oh, that is why I can not add it to the domain09:58
icewatermanhas this dialog been removed in jaunty? http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/turn-off-auto-play-of-audio-and-video-cds-and-dvds-in-ubuntu/09:58

Gnearight, it doesn't know how to handle logins correctly09:59
Spikemccin case if you really miss your shot try envyng ... I used it from the terminal "envyng -t" when envyng is installed before09:59
csaba_it is secutiry = user in swat09:59
csaba_I do not understand09:59
IledenSpikemcc: I don't feel like it's a good idea to downgrade my system. I guess I'll have to fish for another diplay adapter. :-/ But if 9.04 does have the opne source driver, and i's listed as sproviding full 3d support, shouldn't it work?10:00
Gneabut it's not explicitly set in the smb.conf file10:00
csaba_ok, how would I do that?10:00
Gneachange it to something else and save it, then change it back to user and save it again10:00
csaba_should I press set default in swat?10:01
Iledentyler_: If I remeber correctly, you only need to start the "remote shell server (ssh)" from services to get scp to work.10:01
Gneai would avoid it10:01
csaba_ok then how to explicitly set it?10:02
SpikemccIleden just don't expect 3d gaming ...10:02
Iledentyler_: what os are you transferring from?10:02
IledenSpikemcc: not expecting - I'd get a better card for that. I'd like to get google earth and such, only.10:02
Gneacsaba_: 04:00 < Gnea> change it to something else and save it, then change it back to user and save it again10:03
Spikemccthe open source driver should do well10:03
IledenSpikemcc: yeah, as long as I got it to work...10:03
tyler_Ileden: im transfering files off ubuntu drives to a windows pc10:03
csaba_well, I do not see why is this better then hand editing it10:04
monckytyler_: from two seperate machines in the same location?10:04
tyler_yes 2 different computers located directly next to each other on a gigabyte network10:04
Gneacsaba_: it keeps the configuration options neat and in-line10:04
csaba_gnea: still can not add to domain10:05
Gneacsaba_: did it actually save correctly with security = user now?10:05
Iledentyler_: ok, then you also need an scp client for windows. There's at least WinSCP, that I know of.10:05
monckytyler_: ah ok, so what you need to do is look at setting up samba10:05
moncky!samba | tyler_10:05
ubottutyler_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.10:05

tyler_samba is already setup guys...10:06
csaba_gnea: I restarted samba and the xp10:06
monckyIleden: samba is the tool for the job10:06
tyler_i go to samba shares on windows and copy and paste the files and my windows network crashes....so i was gonnat try ftp cause u can resume and stuff10:07
monckytyler_: so you should be able to simply drag and drop10:07
Gneacsaba_: okay, i'm assuming you checked the config file and it now has security = user10:07
tyler_yeah i can drag and drop10:07

Gneathen add it by hand10:09
* Gnea has no idea10:09
tyler_Ileden: can u help me set up the ssh thing or whatever u were talking about10:09
Iledentyler_: ok, scp is an option, although fixing samba sounds good too. For scp transfer, activate "remote shell sever (ssh)" from ubntu, and get WinSCP (or such) for windows, and try that for file transfers.10:09
tyler_i cant use something like flashfxp or something...a normal ftp client?10:10
csaba_gnea: if I click security = share then it is in the smb.conf10:10
csaba_but then when I click security = user it is not in smb.conf10:10
Iledentyler_: ftp clients don't usually know how to use scp.10:10
csaba_gnea: what is this?10:10
tyler_Ileden: how do i start ssh and how do i manage what files are shared10:10
monckytyler_: are you trying to copy everything in one go?10:11
Gneacsaba_: okay, make it share, then edit it by hand to be user, save it, restart10:11
Iledentyler_: with scp, you're basically using your own Ubuntu user account to do transfers, so there's no separate setting for what's shared.10:11
Gneacsaba_: i've never seen it do that before10:11
tyler_moncky: yes about 3 tb worth from like 5 diff drive10:11
Gneacsaba_: it could be assuming that =user is the default setting10:11

csaba_xp say it can not connect to any domain controllers10:13
Gneacsaba_: well, I don't know what else to suggest, other than check your logfiles in /var/log/samba/ or just set it back up with webmin. I'm sorry, but I've never seen this problem before, and without any input from you as far as syslog information goes, it's difficult to pinpoint the problem, still.10:14
Gneacsaba_: at this point, you may also want to ask in #samba10:15
linux_manjucsaba_: Can you repeat the question please10:15
rob__i need help!!!10:15
Iledentyler_: what you want to activate, is "Remote shell server (ssh)". This allows you to log onto your Ubuntu form other computers in the network with SSH, using your username and password.10:15
Gnea!ask | rob__10:15
ubotturob__: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)10:15
Gneacsaba_: it might also be a good idea to walk away and come back to it later, like get some sleep in the meantime, unless other people are depending on you for this10:16
csaba_gnea: thanks a billion for trying to help10:16
csaba_I have been doing this all week almost10:16
tyler_Ileden: I dont see that in services...cant i just type a command in terminal to start ssh server or somethng10:16
Iledentyler_: (also, if you don't need it after the transfer, remember to deactivate it.)10:16
csaba_reinstalled ubuntu twice10:17
Gneacsaba_: sorry it hasn't worked out yet, but hopefully this will give you a better avenue to get it to work10:17
Boohbahtyler_: sudo /etc/init.d/ssh start10:17
Gneacsaba_: reinstalling certainly won't fix it properly, but that's your call10:17
csaba_gnea: the bad part is that it worked fine for sometime10:17
csaba_then it crashed10:17
rob__ok well when i boot LINUX KARMIC latest kernel, it looks like it will boot fine, and then firstly it says "NVIDIA (96.43.10) FAIL"      Then when it rund through that it says ASSUMING DRIVE CACH: WRITE THROUGH,    it says this twice and then o the second just freezes and wont boot10:17
Boohbahrob__: /join #ubuntu+110:18
Gneacsaba_: that's why i keep an eye on my syslog, so that when things do crash, i can go back and see why10:18
tyler_Boohbah: command not found...do i need to install something?10:18
Iledentyler_: hmm... could be you don't have the ssh packages.10:18

=== tyler_ is now known as windoze
windozeIleden: thanks a lot i will test it...how do i turn the ssh server off after im done?10:43
Ziggyzxxylwhat is this nonsense???? how come I have to run Kino as root to be able to export a DV file? That can't be right???10:44
Boohbahwindoze: sudo /etc/init.d/ssh stop10:44
windozeok thats what i thought thanks guys10:44
ikoniaZiggyzxxyl: depends who owns the device your accessing from, and the file system your writing too10:45
Iledenwindoze: or by gui, System->Administration->Services10:45
windozeok awesome10:45

frogzoois there a toolbar applet that will graph my cpu?10:46
fuffaloin the hardyupgrades it says the 2.6.22-15 kerne will freeze, and i should use 2.6.22-14, however im using, how do i know if that will freeze10:46
Ziggyzxxylikonia: well it is completely nuts cos I can read and write mpeg files and project files etc from kino as a normal user, but try to write a DV file and it shats itself and says it can't write the file... unless I am running Kino as root.. I don't understand what is causing it.10:46

nathan7jeeves: what's in your mbr? grub?10:49

kripzWhy is my JFS raid5 always entering read only mode? Im getting errors in dmesg but i dont know what is causing it. Ive run samsung diagnostic tools on all the harddrives and smarmontools, they all pass. Tested ram with memtest, passed. Heres log: http://pastebin.com/m2f62fbf010:54
nathan7jeeves: a10:54
nathan7jeeves: 310:55
nathan7jeeves: w10:55
nathan7jeeves: reboot10:55
linux_manjumaxagaz: Well.. a python/perl script to parse that.. but not sure10:55
linux_manjumaxagaz: What are you trying to achive?10:55
nathan7kripz: mount -o remount,rw /path/to/mountpoint10:56
maxagazlinux_manju, i'd like to see the content of uncrypted discussions10:56
jeevesnathan7, I hope this won't hoop my install10:56
kripznathan7, that doesnt explain why its always going into read only mode10:56
linux_manjumaxagaz: But why?10:56
maxagazlinux_manju, just to check10:56
nathan7jeeves: Me too10:56
nathan7kripz: True10:56
Iledenmaxagaz: you goal seems a bit fishy to me.10:57
jeevesnathan7, ok, rebooting10:57

jeevesnathan7, lol, boot error.  "boot0:error"10:58
nathan7jeeves: Aw10:58
nathan7jeeves: Is 3 your linux partition?10:58

jeevesnathan7, it's /dev/sda5 I think.  one sec10:59
nathan7jeeves: Oh10:59
nathan7jeeves: That's a bit harder10:59
nathan7jeeves: You could just try the fdisk stuff with 5 instead of 310:59
jeevesnathan7, I did that actully11:00
nathan7jeeves: Ah11:00
Iledenmaxagaz: but if you're aiming for all uncrypted conversations, best bet might be to analyze the packet data in some script, that recognizers typical characteristics of language, and displays only stuff it recognizes as language.11:00
zkhey guys, i' m using Ubuntu 9.04 and Google maps in firefox doesn't work....do i have to install any Java stuff?11:00

jeevesnathan7, I can see all of the partitions right now, and it looks like the data is there.  if I can get back the the proper grub parition, then I can go from there.  I hate the live CD11:01
FloodBot2simey00irc: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.11:01
