TwoToneSpiritFor many days, I've been looking for a way to share X applications (or, preferably, an entire workspace) on multiple computers at the same time.  I want each user to have independence, so VNC is not an option.  Among the hundreds of interesting pages I've looked into, I've found the following one.  Does anybody care to comment on the options it offers? http://www.faqs.org/faqs/x-faq/part6/section-4.html00:05

bazhangphyrrus, please dont advertise here00:06
joaopintoshingen, tscoks is a client command, why would you want to call tsocks on apache start ?00:06
joaopintotsocks00:06
dementori install monitorix but not work00:07
dementorit has no graphics00:07
shingenjoaopinto: because I have mysql services that can only be accessed through socks proxies00:07
joaopintodementor, what is monitorix ? There is no such package00:07
joaopintoshingen, so you don't want to start tsocks before apache, tscoks is applied to a command, you want to run apache WITH tsocks00:08

nevynjwyanze: I had an extra >00:45
GaijinDNever mind. I seem to have fixed things in a roundabout manner.00:45
sliptteesyes00:45
nevynjwyanze: so it's program 2>&1 |tee file00:45
jwyanzeyea that works00:45
sliptteesbazhang: yes bro00:45
jwyanzebut to me seen cmd with 2 >> already (whats different now)00:46
antonio__have a problem with my video card, an ati radeon 9200 SE, yesterday I replaced my old voodoo3 with this card and ubuntu 8.10 recognised it, then I tried to change the driver and after that was not able to recover the working configuration00:46
sliptteesbazhang: bcm4213 work on eth0 :-\ sis191 work with sis190 driver on eth100:46
antonio__now I'm without x server, someone can help? is there a way to copy the configuration created wih live ?00:47
nevynjwyanze: I can't parse your last sentance.00:47
sliptteesbazhang: thx for support, i want sleep little bit00:48
MidasManchuhi guys, i'm looking for a backup solution similar to rsync that backs up files, yet leaves them on the server in a compressed format.  Anyone know of anything?00:48
sliptteesthx, i'll search about in jedi google00:48
slipttees^^00:48
sliptteeslater all00:48
FloridaGuyhow do i get out of xserver and go to cli00:49
jwyanzenevyn: i have seen commands with >> before i was wondering why it wont work here or if all the other times i have seen it it was wrong00:49
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: alt-ctrl-f1 ... -f600:49
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: to get back to x, switch to tty700:49
nevynjwyanze: ok >> appends to a file00:49
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: that is -f700:49
MidasManchunote that alt-ctrl fkeys don't exit out of X00:50
nevynjwyanze: because in this case we're re-directing streams > is the correct operator00:50
th0rMidasManchu: why not just use tar.gz?00:50
nevynjwyanze: it's being used in a different context00:50
antonio__someone know about x server configuraztion recovery?00:50
FloridaGuyjanisoza1r, that wont lever the xserver runing at all00:50
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: note what MidasManchu said00:50
ShadowAp3xFloridaGuy: do: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop00:50
ShadowAp3xafter going to tty1 (by pressing ctrl-alt-f1)00:51
jwyanzenevyn: oh ok00:51
QuantixHey guys anybody here know of a good external hard drive that is ubuntu compatible?00:51
MidasManchuth0r, the main reason is that I add and delete files regularly and care about a current snapshot more than whether my files are erased00:51
FloridaGuyXorg -configure .....Fatal server error: Server is already active for display 000:51
ShadowAp3xQuantix: any external hdd should work with Ubuntu00:51
FloridaGuythats why i want out of xserver00:52
th0rMidasManchu: yeah, but you can write a script easy enough that would tar and gzip the files you are interested in, and mark the tar.gz with the time and date in the filename00:52
ShadowAp3xFloridaGuy: did you kill GDM?00:52
QuantixShadoowAp3x: Really? Because ive already had compatibility issues with an mp3 player, and a router. So i want to make sure it doesn't happen again.00:52
bastidrazorantonio__, sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg  will re-detect but not recover. this command could get you back in the GUI though.00:52
nevynQuantix: filesystems get kinda interesting tho.00:52
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: kill the gdm00:52
cjaeI have a lvm question, I have three hard disks one with / and swap on non-lvm partitions, and the remainder of that drive plus the other two need to be ext4 with a mount point of /home, I have the physical partitions created with lvmbuntu as the volume group, but I am not sure how to make them ext4 with a mount point of /home00:52
ShadowAp3xFloridaGuy: sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop00:52
janisoza1rwith recent (yesterday or so) adobe flash update, how do you find fullscreen video on youtube (on x64)? has it improved?00:52
QuantixWhat about an external hardrive that is just a harddrive with an enclosure?00:52
antonio__ok, will try00:53
MidasManchuth0r, I suppose it's worth a shot.  Thanks00:53
nevynQuantix: that'll work00:53
ShadowAp3xQuantix: Ubuntu should be able to read any fs that Windows can00:53
FloridaGuyShadowAp3x, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop...to restart it...would it be gdm start00:53
ShadowAp3xQuantix: only ones you have to worry about are proprietary ones that need software to access (such as mp3 players)00:53
nevynShadowAp3x: and with ntfs-3g it can even write them all00:53
th0rMidasManchu: you want it compressed, right? you can run the script in cron and have it backup every five minutes if you like00:53
=== solexious_ is now known as solexious
janisoza1rFloridaGuy: exactly. if you type the argument wrong, it should list possible options00:54
QuantixShadowAp3x: Oh okay got it. So an external hard drive that is plug and play in windows should be fine in Ubuntu?00:54
MidasManchuth0r, yeah, I think that's what I'll do.00:54
ShadowAp3xFloridaGuy: to start it, yeah, you would add start instead of stop00:54
Dr_WillisQuantix:  i use external ntfs disks all the time.00:54
LinuX2halfWhy my screen remain dark after suspension?00:54
ubuntuQuantix, yes00:54
ShadowAp3xQuantix: yeah00:54
th0rMidasManchu: consider using bzip instead of gzip...much tighter compression, tar.bz files00:54
QuantixThanks! Just making sure i don't buy something that isn't compatible...00:54
QuantixAgain!00:54
th0rMidasManchu: or is that tar.bz2?00:55
MidasManchuth0r, I might just use 7zip and get the max compression00:55
rubyisti need to get some old python2.4 packages, is there any repository i can use? (arch amd64)00:55
QuantixOh and another thing....since my router is incompatible im going to buy a new one, any suggestions?00:55
nevynQuantix: out of curiousity what did you buy that didn't work?00:55
solexiousIf I make a new pc with 3 nvidia cards with dual dvi outputs, can ubuntu handle all 6 screens? not with dual view?00:55
ithicineQuantix: you might also want to avoid external HDDs that claim encryption as a feature... a lot of cheap USB HDDs require special windows-only software to access them.  It should be possible to make them work, but it's unnecessary trouble.  Also, you may find the backup buttons don't work00:55
janisoza1rrubyist: have you tried PPAs?00:55
LinuX2halfI can't bright up the screen and the screen is pitch black.00:55
MidasManchuth0r, I might actually even skip rsync and just scp the files over00:55
rubyistjanisoza1r: PPA's?00:56
janisoza1r!ppa | rubyist00:56
ubotturubyist: With Launchpad's Personal Package Archives (PPA), you can build and publish binary Ubuntu packages for multiple architectures simply by uploading an Ubuntu source package to Launchpad. See https://help.launchpad.net/PPAQuickStart.00:56
Dr_Willissolexious:   should be able to.  there may be some issues.. but Twinview is very well done.00:56
LinuX2halfSomeone said that my there's something wrong with my BIOs that Linux had trouble with00:56
ChrisRHelp , I am looking to recruit a advanced Ubuntu User to Setup a Secure Server to host Voice n Streaming Server. Please only experienced n serious inquiries00:56
QuantixA Netgear wpn824 V3 router. Stupid peice of shit only works with windows computers. Can't make it work with wii, zune, iphone, or linux laptops. Searched through forums, tried many different settings. Theres no hope.00:56
cjaeso it is sda1 = /, sda2 = swap sda3,4,5 are extended logical sda6 =/home (and one part of lvm)(lvmbuntu is volume group), sdc5 =lvm(lvmbuntu) and sdb =lvm (lvmbuntu) but now I need filesystems on the lvmbuntu group that is ext400:56
janisoza1rrubyist: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas00:56
th0rMidasManchu: oh...I thought the files resided on the same server with the backup. But still, you could script the whole operation00:56
QuantixAlso a samsung p2...but i got that working.00:56
colloguyhow do I temporarily change my primary group? Like sudo but for groups. I don't wanna lose my environment using newgrp : /00:56
nevynQuantix: umm it has ethernet right?00:56
ithicineQuantix: any regular old USB HDD will work, as they present themselves to the operating system as mass storage devices.00:56
solexiousDr_Willis, does twinview allow each screen to have its own compiz cube?00:57
michaelI have an unknown file type and I need help opening it please00:57
cjaesolexious, yes00:57
rubyistjanisoza1r: damn.. not there :(00:57
dewctry the command "file"00:57
dewcmichael: file nameoffilehere00:58
Dr_Willissolexious:  never noticed.. i find the cube totally useless.00:58
dewcsee if that yields and results00:58
Dr_Willissolexious:  proberly one of the most useless things ive seen in compiz :)00:58
ithicinemichael: what is the filename00:58
ChrisRCan Some please tell where i can find a experienced Ubuntu User that I can recruit to setup a server. Or at least documentation on how to00:58
MidasManchuth0r, they are, however rsync would try to re sync the files again correct?  if they're compressed, rsync will see them as not there and try again?00:58
michaelgave x86 boot sector guys00:58
rubyistjanisoza1r: any other ideas00:58
solexiousDr_Willis, heh, well if not the cube specificity then desktops?00:58
cjaeso would it be mkfs ext4 /dev/lvmbuntu /home?00:58
janisoza1rrubyist: compile from source00:59
QuantixGot to go sorry guys.00:59
godmodegrafixlater everyone!00:59
rubyistjanisoza1r: alright00:59
ultrazHello, does anyone know how to colorize [ OK ] during boot, like in other distros ?00:59
th0rMidasManchu: yeah....I don't think you want rsync unless you are happy with just one backup...then rsync would see a newer version of the file and sync it00:59
janisoza1rrubyist: use checkinstall00:59
Dr_Willissolexious:  you need to clarify exactly what you are trying to do..  I use 2 monitors (1 video card) all the time. I have Twinview set up so i have one 'wide' desktop spanning both.00:59
Guyverhey00:59
Guest74437who is good at this in home security for ubuntu linux 9.04.so i can get a person to help me out .00:59

michaelyou didn't accidently press the windows key and m did you?01:00
michael\01:00
janisoza1rmichael: what happens then?01:00
solexiousDr_Willis, if you maxamise a window, does it stay on one screen, or span both?01:00
Guest74437i want to be safe from anybody trying to hack/crack my os01:00
Dr_Willissolexious:  it fullscreens to the monitor it is on in most cases.. some very badly written apps can get confused and try both.01:01
janisoza1rGuest74437: disconnect from the internet01:01

cjaeno lvm heads in here?01:01
Guest74437it is safe than sorry01:02
Dr_Willissolexious:  start with 2. work your way up.01:02
coleysikonia: Whats up :)01:02
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  so you are just being paranoid -  You have no real indication that anything is wrong?01:02
ChrisRrun a firewall and it will show you all your connections, and password your root account and you should be fine Guest01:02
Guest74437no i am not01:02
nevynGuest74437: being paranoid is a vaulable survival instinct.. however you need to understand the risks and their probabilities.01:02
ShadowAp3xGuest74437: Firestarter is a good firewall01:02
solexiousDr_Willis, yep, starting with 2, its a triple sli motherboard so im just thinking of the future ;)01:03
* Dr_Willis finds often things 'new users' try to do to make things more secure.. actually have the opposite effect.01:03
nevyndon't password your root account if you wnat to be secure01:03
ChrisRThat's what I used on the last distro is Firestarter worked great01:03
Dr_Willissolexious:  you must have a large desk.. and i HOPE you got a big powersupply01:03
nevyncreate an additional account without sudo access... and use this for day to day activities01:03
Guest74437well i have read what yall have sent to me but i need to have a person to help me out01:03

Guest74437i dont want a outher kiven mittnick trying to hack my os01:04
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  help you out what what specifically?  'how to lock down a ubuntu box?'  or somthing more specific?01:04
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  dont run any services you dont need (thats  the normal default)  and you are fairly safe.01:04
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  keep up to date on updates also.01:04
LinuX2halfGuest74437:  Hm, try to install LIDS01:04
Dr_Willis!info LIDS01:04

solexiousDr_Willis, ive got my server rack in the study so more noise wont bother me much :) and im getting a 850w "quad sli" powersupply, and its going to be pxe boot, so no hd power/noise01:05
bazhangGuest74437, reading the documentation first; then ask detailed questions.01:05
Guest74437well i have read but i dont know what i am doing01:06
=== coleys__ is now known as rawr
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  then i would say leave the defaults alone. You are proberlya s safe as you are going to get.01:06
janisoza1rGuest74437: how can you be sure that you're safe then?01:06

Kveldulfi could use help, am having problems with installing nvidia drivers01:07

ChrisRJust needs to have the apps i mentioned and security inplace01:10
Kveldulf8.0401:10
Dr_WillisGuest74437:    the hacker hacks in using some exploit  of a service normally, or kernel exploit.. if theres no services.. theres no door to get in.01:10
nevynGuest74437: if someone with enough resources want's in you're screwed01:10
nevynGuest74437: this is true of all security01:10
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  you as a 'uneducated user' are proberly more dangerous to the working of your system then any hackers finding your ip at random.01:10
Guest74437so yes anything can be hack01:11

ShadowAp3xChrisR: What kind of security are you looking for in particular?01:11
nevynGuest74437: If you are a definite target.. in that you have resources worth protecting.. measures should be taken...01:11
DaZGuest74437: : on the  pwn 2 own no one  hacked laptop with ubuntu01:11
elplattanyone here that can help me with my monitor configuration?01:11
DaZmaybe the prize wasn't wort it, but it doesn't change the fact ;f01:11
ShadowAp3xChrisR: Is the server these applications are hosted on at a private location behind a firewall?01:12
nevynhowever... the cost of taking those measures needs to be weighed against the potential loss and probability of being attacked01:12
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  then with that logic - nothing you do will matter..01:12
richardcavellDaZ: were there any services running on that laptop?01:12
ChrisRBasic security and protect root account with dependable firewall, and yes it's behind a cisco router01:12
DiViN3anyone here can help me01:12
tiPPyhey guys :P01:12
sebsebsebDiViN3: with what?01:12
sebsebseb!details |  DiViN301:12
ubottuDiViN3: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."01:12
DaZrichardcavell: default i think01:12
Guest74437that is why i am asking if yall know what program will test out any and all thing that can be hack into01:12
DiViN3sebsebseb : i am having a error msg in my server01:12
richardcavellDaZ: so no services running01:12
ShadowAp3xChrisR: Are you unable to set up these applications yourself?01:13
ChrisRIt's been so long since i've compiled packages bit rusty01:13
* richardcavell has completed Half-Life and is now installing Half-Life: Blue Shift01:13
DaZwhat services do you have in mind? <:01:13
nevynGuest74437: if a "hacker" as you keep refering to them.. actually wants in to your system.. it's all over.. the general strategy.. is to reduce your attack profile (don't provide services to the outside world.)01:13
Dr_WillisGuest74437:  use a port scanner web site.. see if anything turns up.01:13
sebsebsebGuest74437: the proper term is cracker the media have it wrong,   the bad guys are also known as blackhats,   the security reashers are known as  whitehats01:14
Dr_Willisare there any services installed by default on a ubuntu system? Ive never really checked.01:14
richardcavellDr_Willis: I have ping enabled and nothing else.  Is it such a bad thing to have ping running?01:14
ChrisRIs 9.04 more user friendly to do these things myself?01:14
DiViN3sebsebseb : i have sent u a pm of the error01:14
Dr_Willisrichardcavell:  i doubt if its an issue.01:14
ShadowAp3xChrisR: as long as you've got all the dependancies, it should be fairly straight forward01:14
sebsebsebGuest74437: a hacker could be for example an open source program, hack the code for a program, as in edit it01:14
richardcavellPing the world... make it a better place...01:14
DaZanyway, you're watching too much tv01:14
ShadowAp3xChrisR: yeah01:14
nevynGuest74437: and to make your system hard enough to get into that there are many easier targets and the cracker keeps looking01:14
ShadowAp3xChrisR: Just sudo apt-get install build-essential01:14
sebsebsebDiViN3: I am not the person to help you with that01:14
richardcavellDr_Willis: default install of Ubuntu has 0 services running on TCP/UDP01:14
ShadowAp3xChrisR: That should give you everything you need to compile applications01:14
th0rDr_Willis: no, by default there isn't anything running on the ports, except of course icmp01:14
Guest74437will i want to become a whitehat hacker01:14
richardcavellfor you and for me and the entire human race01:14
Dr_Willisrichardcavell:  i had ssh setup once  to the outside world so my brother could ssh in.. the 'logwatch' program showed about 100,000 password attempts over 3 days.01:14
elplatthello, anyone?01:15
ChrisRI will install n check it out n get back to you01:15
nevynGuest74437: find 5k and do the ethical hacking course01:15
ChrisRThank you01:15
DaZDr_Willis: how about trying different port?01:15
ShadowAp3xnp01:15
Dr_Willisrichardcavell:  yea. thats what i was thinking 0. but i always set up samba and cups and ssh01:15
th0rDr_Willis: I moved ssh off port 22 and those hack attempts dropped to zero01:15
chanibalhi, any idea how to install a cli (aka desktopless, just the command line) ubuntu via WUBI?01:15

nevynGuest74437: but beware it's actually pretty boring01:15
richardcavellDr_Willis: I set up ssh for about 24 hours so a guy here and I could experiment with it.  I had 3 failed login attempts from random IPs01:15
Dr_WillisDaZ:  that dident really lower it much. Once they saw a port.. they tried..01:15

nevynGuest74437: professional course pro rates.01:15
DaZDr_Willis: port knocking, banning after few attempts01:16
Dr_Willischanging the port is sort of like hiding your key under the flowerpot.. instead of the door mat. :P01:16

MidasManchuDiViN3, sudo shutdown -r01:20
DasEiDiViN3:what message do you get ?01:20

mazda01need some help please. I am trying to clone an existing desktop setup and move it to new hardware. I did a tar backup excluding proc, mnt, media, var/lib/mythtv, and sys. I untarred it onto the new drive and recreated all the folders I exluded but for some reason my / is being mounted read only because of errors. I can't see what the errors are because the screen goes so fast. also, darn fsck runs everytime I reboot. i fixed menu.lst and 01:21
Dr_Willistakamarou:  you could install the 'gos-desktop' stuff on a normal ubuntu install and pick what one to use from the GDM logn screen i recall also.01:21
richardcavelltakamarou: what's gOS?01:21
Dr_WillisI dident find gOS worth messing wth :(01:21
richardcavell!gOS01:21
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about gOS01:21
unoprichardcavell, gOS is an implementation of an LDAP system01:21

unoprichardcavell, actually, i take that back, it was gosa i was talking about01:22
takamarouDr_Willis, that will work for just trying it out, but there is no reason to even try it out if it is not worth an eventual dual boot01:22
DasEiWillieDaPimp:the url from the pastebin ?01:22
ShadowAp3xmazda01: just taring your folders and moving them will not work correctly01:22
Lenin_Cathow do you switch a image to RGB in gimp!?01:22
DiViN3DasEi : well its been more then 4 hours but the server doesnt seem to reboot or restart01:22

Dr_Willisrichardcavell:  i see the web site  http://www.thinkgos.com/index.html   using lots of new buzzwords like cloud computing and stuff. :)01:24
takamarouDr_Willis, I've read about it.  It sounds like it'll be worth using.  Anyways, you don't know of any way to quickly switch between to different OS's, unless in Virtual Box?01:24
FIKUSZsziasztok01:24
richardcavelltakamarou: there's no other way01:24
nevynelplatt: screen support is quite tricky remotely but I'll see what I can do..01:25
Dr_Willistakamarou:  theres that xen/zen (??) stuff.. but virtualbox is the best way to test things out.01:25
richardcavelltakamarou: you need to use virtualization software or else use two different computers01:25
mazda01can anyone help me figure out why fsck is running upon every reboot?01:25
DiViN3DasEi : well its been more then 4 hours but the server doesnt seem to reboot or restart01:25

solexiousDr_Willis, Sorry to poke you again, are you able to ad top and bottom panels to your second screen?01:26
mazda01richardcavell: it's not fixing anything01:26
Dr_Willistakamarou:  i dont even see what about it makes it worth using. But i guess it depends on your needs.. ive  been on a testing spree lately. its hard to make anything 'stand out' to me.01:27
richardcavellmazda01: well it won't if it can't write to the partition01:27

DiViN3DasEi : i am xsing the server via ssh so i dnt think so i can do a ctrl + alt + del01:28
Dr_Willissolexious:  the panels dont 'steatch' across 2 monitors with twinview enabled.01:28
mazda01richardcavell: like right now. I just rebooted to see if I got it working yet. I see at the top this message; ld_static: cannot open output file /lib/lodules/blah blah blah  Reaad only file system.  then below that, iTCO_wdt: failed to reset NO_REBOOT flag, reboot disabled by hardware  and now it's sitting there running fsck on 5 drives again for like the umptenth time01:28
Xodiac13help please01:29
solexiousDr_Willis, Thanks, just what i hoped for01:29
DasEiDiViN3: true01:29
Dr_Willissolexious:  i keep a right side panel on the 2n monitor for launchers. :)01:29
Dr_Willissolexious:  so i got 3 panels total01:29
richardcavellmazda01: and it does this before booting into your X-windows system?01:29
Dr_Willissolexious:  i have seen a FEW apps tht get confused by the panels on the first monitor so if they fullscreen they dont fully maxamize if on the 2nd monitor.. they think thers a panel at the top01:30
solexiousDr_Willis, Thats what I had planned, but till its all arrives in the post I cant test any thing like that :01:30
solexious:)*01:30
mazda01richardcavell: within fstab the / mount line has errors-remount-ro    or something like that. how can I force it to mount read/write?  Also, how do I get it to stop trying to run fsck? i ahve run fsck on all the drives with a live cd and they are fine01:30
tiPPycan you have Gui via ssh?01:30
DasEiDiViN3: so probably the sever side is locked up then, a deafult ssh would shutdown, if root is permitted01:30
Xodiac13so what should i do anyone?01:30
stealth-I set up a sound blaster live card, and ubuntu recognizes it, however it continues using my on-board sound instead. Anyone know how to change what it uses?01:30
elplattnevyn: any thoughts?01:30
richardcavellmazda01: mount it as rw01:30
mazda01richardcavell: yes, I need to fix xorg. I am just trying to get to a gui so I can run nvidia-settings01:30
DiViN3DasEi : so how do i get it to reboot and get my things fixed01:30
Goshey any easy peasy moders here?01:30
nevynelplatt: ok...01:30
bazhangGos, what is easy peasy01:31
janisoza1rtiPPy: you can forward X01:31
solexiousDr_Willis, I plan on having panels on the bottom 2 screens and totally empty for the top 201:31
=== overclucker is now known as vrcluckrapplpin
mazda01richardcavell: I am merely booting up the system. should I change the fstab line?01:31
DasEiDiViN3: who admistrates the server btw where is it located ?01:31
richardcavellmazda01: yeah01:31
stealth-tiPPy: yes, you can use X11 forwarding. However, for a full desktop environment (such as gnome) its probably better to use VNC with encryption01:31
Xodiac13is kubuntu better than ubuntu01:31
Dr_Willissolexious:  you got a large desk.. and lots of neck pain in your future i predict..01:31
richardcavellmazda01: let fsck write to the partition01:31
coleysXodiac13: simple answer, no.01:31
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  use what you like.. kde or gnome..01:31
Gosbazhang better known as eeeubuntu01:31
nevynelplatt: that particular hardware has been getting lots of TLC in recent X development is there a reason you don't want to run 9.04?01:31

richardcavellit's the whole filesystem01:31
sebsebsebXodiac13: in my opinion,  KDE  3 and  Ubuntu  are about even,  but that KDE 4 thing I am not a fan,  except for  how apps have got better, but I can run in Gnome anyway so :)01:31

bazhangGos, is that an official Ubuntu release? or the one with Adam's kernel01:32
nevynrichardcavell: yeah01:32
Gos!help01:32
ubottuPlease 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. :-)01:32
richardcavellmazda01: I'm saying let it write to the partition01:32
richardcavellnevyn: I'm on a GMA 950 and I'm using Karmic.  It's way way way better than Jaunty01:32
sebsebsebXodiac13: I should have said  Gnome not Ubuntu above01:32
ubuntuhow do i run a 64 bit guest in a 32 bit host in virtualbox, i read that was possible01:32

bazhangGos, please /msg ubottu01:32

Gosbazhang will do01:33
sebsebsebXodiac13: KDE 4 as a GUI no thanks01:33
elplattrichardcavell: which number is karmic?01:33

SuspectZerohey there. i have a program thts not responding. i closed it with ctrl+alt+escape. but ksysguard still shows it. i tried killing the pid but still nothing. any suggestions?01:33
Xodiac13sebsebseb? so you dont like guis01:33
richardcavellelplatt: 9.1001:33
nevynelplatt: 9.10pre...01:33
bazhangelplatt, 9.10 #ubuntu+1 for discussion01:33
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  ubuntu and kubuntu use the same drivers..  ATI has been goofing with their fglrx drivers lately.     (i rid my self of all my ati machines so cant help more then that)01:33
mazda01richardcavell: i don't know what you're saying. I am booting up ubuntu, the / is being mounted read only because of unknown errors, then fsck runs and shows everything is ok. what are you suggesting I do. I also can't get into a darn X session. despite me running sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg01:33
DasEiSuspectZero: which app ?01:33
richardcavellelplatt: Karmic is an order of magnitude better with my Intel GMA 945 than any previous Ubuntu01:34
SuspectZeroDasEi, k3b01:34
sebsebsebXodiac13: I don't like KDE 4 as a GUI!   Gnome  and  KDE 3 though :)   oh and I have tried window managers,  OpenBox, and  Fluxbox, and  what not,   but  I would go back to Gnome or KDE01:34
sebsebsebXodiac13: XFCE is alright01:34
ChrisROK Next Question, Does Ubuntu 9.04 Support 4gigs of DDR Ram n Quad Processors?01:34
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  you can install kubuntu-desktop on ubuntu, and ubuntu-desktop on kubuntu -  and just pick what desktp to use from the login screen.01:34
richardcavellmazda01: If fsck can't modify the disk then it will run every time01:34
nevynsebsebseb: don't respond to in channel polls01:34
elplattnevyn: i'm happy to try a different version01:34
DasEiSuspectZero: try sudo killall k3b , to kill child-processes, too01:34
DiViN3DasEi :well i bought this dedi from shellservers.org so i have no idea where the IDC is01:34
richardcavellmazda01: mount it as rw01:34
SuspectZeroDasEi, ksysguard is still showing it01:34
richardcavellmazda01: change the /etc/fstab line - replace that bit with rw01:34
ubuntusebsebseb, thanks01:34
TwoToneSpiritIs there a way to be alerted when a user SSH's in?01:34
Xodiac13Dr_Willis: all i did was install kubuntu 8.10 thinking it would install my video driver the one think im confused is that it wont install in kubuntu but it does in ubuntu01:34

sebsebseb!kde3 >  Xodiac1301:34
ubottuXodiac13, please see my private message01:34
elplattnevyn: my frustration is that it seems like it either works automatically or it doesn't work at all01:35
sebsebsebXodiac13: and there's a repo you can get for it01:35
mazda01richardcavell: what do you suggest I do to get the darn / disk mounted as read write? do you have a fstab line that I could look at?01:35
DasEiSuspectZero: top also showing it ?01:35
elplattnevyn: already tried 9.04, same problem01:35
nevynelplatt: you can do some things like try running xrandr from a terminal.. and see what shows up01:35
sebsebsebubuntu: for what?01:35

jonesyany one there01:36
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i mean it worked fine in ubuntu 8.1001:36
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  the 2 use the exact same core/drivers under neeth. it shouldent matter.01:36
SuspectZeroDasEi, yep01:36
richardcavellmazda01: replace the errors=remount-ro bit on the / line with rw01:36

elplattnevyn: same resolutions as in the display prefs gui01:36
bazhangjonesy, yes01:36
mazda01richardcavell: ok, will try01:36
nevynelplatt: how old is the hardware?01:36
sebsebsebXodiac13: which  type of graphics card?01:36
DiViN3DasEi : m getting this error when i restart my bind9 : rndc: connection to remote host closed01:36
Xodiac13sebsebseb: it just wont work in kubuntu when i try to activate it it really doesnt do anything and it keeps saying that the driver is not activated so then i keep trying to activate it01:36
mazda01richardcavell: thanks. I didn't think it would be this hard to move an install to another computer but I guess it is.01:36
richardcavellHey, whoever was telling me to use ntop, how do I use it?  I type 'ntop' at the Terminal and just get a bunch oferrors01:36
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  you may want to upgrade to  the latest ubuntu.. but that may not support your card with the fglrx drivers at all. So its a catch-22 situation  i guess01:36
elplattnevyn: few years, not sure exactly01:36
richardcavellmazda01: Oh God don't try to do that01:37
Xodiac13sebsebseb: its a radeon x200 worked awesome in ubuntu 8.1001:37
sebsebsebXodiac13: sounds like something from ATI?01:37
DiViN3DasEi : now the thing is my hostname is not recolveing01:37
DiViN3DasEi : now the thing is my hostname is not resolving*01:37
nevynelplatt: have you checked for a bios update?01:37
Xodiac13sebsebseb: so im going to have to go back to ubuntu 8.10 then01:37
mazda01richardcavell: i wasn't about to reinstall all my apps, my mysql server, my  mythtv install and all my customizations!01:37
sebsebsebXodiac13: is it ATI?01:37
jonesy_still cant set my screen to 1280X1024 any one got any iders?01:37
Xodiac13sebsebseb: yeah01:37
richardcavellmazda01: probably easier than what you're trying to do!01:38
sebsebsebXodiac13: sure go back to 8.10,  it's  the better release really in many ways,  when comparing to 9.04,   9.10 should be quite a bit better though :)01:38
DasEiDiViN3: if you rent a dedi-server, they should have done that for you01:38
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i want to try out 9.04 but it doesnt support my video card01:38
SuspectZeroDasEi, screw it, i'll just restart . thanks for the help though. it seems everytime im here ur always helping me :D join #remote-exploit sometime and i'll help you :P01:38

ubottuXodiac13: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto01:38
elplattnevyn: nope, how would that help?01:38
sebsebsebXodiac13: not much to try out in 9.04, to be hoenst01:38
sebsebsebhonest01:38
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  if you accidently upgraded to 9.04 that might of broke the ati d5rivers.01:38
richardcavellmazda01: okay.01:38
Xodiac13sebsebseb: o okay01:38
DiViN3DasEi :well the thing is its only done when i get the managed service, but since i didnt i have to do it on my own01:38
sebsebsebXodiac13: also if you virtual machine it with 8.10 as host,  that should get round your graphids card issue, because then it can use the host01:39
Xodiac13Dr_Willis: i didnt it keeps asking me lol01:39
nevynelplatt: there's a table in the videocard of supported resolutions01:39
mechtechsebsebseb: I never heard of Matrox video cards before...they any good?01:39

DasEiDiViN3:see, and it has no static ip ?01:39

nevynmechtech: they're workstation cards.. they got out of the consumer space a few years ago01:40
edbianLine: add a "&" to run a command "in the background"01:40
Xodiac13Dr_Willis: i am going to have to install ubuntu 8.10 then thank you i appreciate the help01:40
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  you could install ubuntu, then install the kubuntu-desktop package if you wanted...  i gave away my ati based laptop. so  thats about all i know on the topic. :) good luck01:40
mechtechnevyn: Matrox G400?01:40
sebsebsebXodiac13: I read something about better support in 9.10 for these problem Intel  graphics cards,  so  maybe other types as well01:40
nevynmechtech: yeah01:40
nevynbut that was ages ago..01:40
DiViN3DasEi :i have 128 ips in it01:40

Xodiac13Dr_Willis: okay thank you01:40
Dr_WillisI finally got my intel cards working good. :) just had to use a PPA repo to upgrade things01:40
Joelitohi all, question about emesene: I deleted contacts from my hotmail account and they still can send me IMs..how can I fix this?01:40
Lineedbian thank you i will try it01:40
Xodiac13sebsebseb: is 9.10 going to support all raedon video cards01:40
linuxguy2009Ok I want to use the great reliable ext3 file system on my flashdrive and external hard drive. I dont want to keep having to do "gksudo nautilus" every time i want to access files or chamnge permissions constantly. I read that some guy adds users names to the "users" group and then simply sets all ownership of the drive to "users group". Is there any groups by default that represent "every user has permission to use that drive? Example 01:40
sebsebsebXodiac13: not sure01:40
edbianLine:  NP!  You can test it out in a standard terminal01:41
Xodiac13sebsebseb: okay thank you have a good one01:41
DasEiDiViN3:so take one and register it at dymdns.org with a name you want01:41
Xodiac13sebsebseb: going back to ubuntu01:41
sebsebsebXodiac13: hang on01:41
DasEidyndns* , DiViN301:41
Xodiac13sebsebseb: okay01:41
mazda01richardcavell: what's that option when running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg? is it like --phigh or something like that?  also, X did finally show up but I only have 256 RAM so I am guessing that's holding me back trying to use gnome. my top panel isn't filling in with Apps or Places or System and the stuff in the right side of the uppper panel isn't there either. any thoughts?01:41
sebsebsebXodiac13: did you understand what I was saying about virtual machine? and how much RAM do you have?01:41
lsuqt01:41
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  set the  modes to 777 on the stuff..  then anyone can access them all..  but thats not a good fix.. your groups method may be a better way.01:41
jonesy_any one know how to set my desktop to 1280x1024 coz it want let me :(01:41
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i have 1 gig01:41
sebsebsebXodiac13: yeah that's enough for vm's.  so you say  KDE 4  is  the problem in 9.04?01:42
Xodiac13sebsebseb: with 2.66ghz processor duo core01:42
sebsebsebXodiac13: it won't do your graphids card?01:42
DiViN3DasEi : well i setup my own name server n pointed it already, it was working but after i did apt-get upgrade  , all went crazy01:42
nevynmazda01: -plow will give you all questions01:42
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i have kubuntu 8.10 installed it should support my video card but it doesnt01:42
sebsebseb!kde3 >  Xodiac1301:42
ubottuXodiac13, please see my private message01:42
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  ive learned to set the uid's on all my users on the various linux box's i use identically. so  my file ownership/s dont change when i move my flash drives from one to another.01:42
richardcavellmazda01: I don't think I can add anything.  If you're trying to migrate it to new hardware you're going to have a headache.01:42
linuxguy2009Dr_Willis: Ok cool. BTW what are the numbers I keep seeing mean for permissions? that 777 666 etc. Are they group or user numbers?01:42
sebsebsebXodiac13: so your going back to 8.04?01:43
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  those are file permisions.. neither one. :) chown for owner.. chmod for modes.01:43
mazda01nevyn: --plow?  really? I thought it was something with phigh.01:43
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i have to go back to ubuntu 8.10 because my video card actually worked with 3d and all01:43
linuxguy2009oh ok01:43
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  theres guides  and docs and examples of what all those mean.01:43
DiViN3DasEi : is there any command to restore the whole server back to an earlier time01:43
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  really somthing worth reading up on. I rarely use the groups feature.01:43
Hack-edhey01:43
Goshey01:44
nevynmazda01: -phigh and -plow control which questions are presented to you01:44
sebsebsebXodiac13: ok or you could try other distros01:44
mazda01nevyn: ok, thanks01:44
nevyn-phigh only shows the high priority questions01:44
linuxguy2009Dr_Willis:  Right on brotha! Thank you that gives me somethimg new to google and learn. Later!01:44
Hack-edO:-)01:44
Gos:P01:44
DasEiDiViN3:that won't work, and they didn't tell you how to restart ?01:44
Dr_Willislinuxguy2009:  i saw a little google desktop gadget that lets you click on a thing and it shows the ### permisions :)01:44
nevynlinuxguy2009: additionally checkout umask and default umask01:44
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i have been trying to see if opensuse supports my video card but i tried looking in forums and i cant find it so if it works with my video card then i will try that out01:44
bobwhoopsI want to do a full disk backup from the live cd, including MBR. Would dd if=/dev/sda of=/mnt/whatever do that?01:45
sebsebsebXodiac13: no I woudn't recommend going to opensuse.  How experienced are you  with Linux?01:45
Xodiac13sebsebseb: im a complete linux NOOB01:45
Dr_WillisXodiac13:  the thing to remeber is that its ATI that has done changes to their FGLRX drivers.. its possible that card is one they removed from the newer FGLRX drivers.. if so . then most all new disrtos will use the ATI drivber for that card.01:45
Lineedbian i tried the & before the comma d and i got bash: unexpected character '&’01:45
DasEibobwhoops: yes, but the /mnt/whatever has to be big enough, own sized party will be best01:45
mordocaiHello, i am using transmission bittorrent client to download debian and archlinux, and my download speed is fine, but i have a constant 0.0 kb/s upload.  I've opened the port on my router, checked preferences and clicked enabled port forwarding, and preferences even says the port is open... but still no uploading. I don't like just downloading without "giving back"... anyone know of anything to check?01:46
DiViN3DasEi : as i said earlier , it was like working fine all the way until i apt-get upgrade , n the server was reboot at that point of time to take effect  but after that this problem started01:46
bobwhoopsDasEi: Can it be just a regular file on an external hard drive?01:46
edbianLine01:46
Xodiac13sebsebseb: so what should i do because i see my only option is to go to ubuntu 8.1001:46
edbianLine: A "&" at the end of the command01:46
sebsebsebXodiac13: yeah  it's not if  Ubuntu will support all  ATI  cards,  it's  really  if ATI  will support all ATI cards on Linux distros,   which I belive is what  Dr_Willis  was also  basically saying01:47
edbianLine: "sudo compiz --replace&"01:47
mechtechmordocai: seems like you've got the bases covered...maybe there isn't anyone trying to download that right now however unlikely that may seem01:47
DasEiDiViN3:so you had one reboot least; sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a    is another manner to fork it all again01:47
Xodiac13sebsebseb: o okay cool cool well ubuntu 8.10 it is01:47
sebsebsebXodiac13: yeah 8.10 or  8.0.3  the long term support,  or  other distros,  such as  Mandriva,  since your new to Linux01:47
LancearateI'm having difficulty with an intermittent hard crash in Ubuntu-9.04 AMD64 when attempting large file operations like backing up to a portable drive (every few minutes), or very intermittently (once or twice weekly) with regular use. Upon hard crash, the machine no longer accepts any incoming ssh connections or responds to existing ssh connections, and (as far as I know) the logs found in /var/log don't contain anything out of 01:47
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i tried looking at that too mandriva i dont know if it supports my video card01:47
DasEibobwhoops: regular partiton, as this will behave like a big iso01:47
sebsebsebXodiac13: or  PC Linux OS, which I belive is coming out with the 2009 version in August :)01:48
mordocaimechtech: Possible i suppose, i looked around for a software firewall on ubuntu... didn't see anything i could open software wise. The arch download has 95 peers, the debian only 701:48
sebsebsebXodiac13: that's the idea of Live CD's for distros01:48
sebsebsebXodiac13: boot up and try your hardware, without installing anything, unless you want to01:48
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i remeber trying out mandriva and i had a x1200 and that somehow had 3d support01:48
mechtechmordocai: at command prompt run: ufw status01:48
wethow can i change or modify JVM options on ubuntu?01:48
bobwhoopsDasEi: it has to be a partition, it can't be a file?01:48
Xodiac13sebsebseb: so would it be better if i go to ubuntu 8.0401:48
DiViN3DasEi : i am recieving error  : invoke-rc.d: WARNING: invoke-rc.d called during shutdown sequence01:48
WindowsUserLancearate: what are you using to back up01:49
Xodiac13sebsebseb: does it support my video card01:49
mechtechmordocai: that will show you whether uncomplicated firewall is enabled or disabled01:49
mordocaimechtech: Inactive01:49
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i remeber looking at the ubuntu forums and 8.10 supported my video card01:49
sebsebsebXodiac13: if 8.10 does I expect  8.04.3  does, since  I think  it still has the older version of xorg01:49
mechtechmordocai: no other firewall?01:49
LancearateWindowsUser: samba, nautilus, copy+paste to directory on windows vista machine01:49
mordocaimechtech: Hmm... i do have some in my peer list who say they are incoming connections... so i guess they are getting here. And yeah, no other firewall that i know of.01:49
Xodiac13sebsebseb: is that a good thing or bad older version of xorg and i cant choose i need help on that should i use 8.10 or 8.0401:50
rwwsebsebseb, Xodiac13: versions of Ubuntu before 9.04 use the older version of xorg, and aren't getting upgraded to the newer one.01:50
DasEibobwhoops:it can be a file, if the size is big enough, but dd will overwrite anything in the xisting place, so the upper space on the external hd then is useless01:50
jtropsMy mother in-law updated her Ubuntu laptop, and now Gnome won't load.  It was set up to auto login and load the desktop, and now she is getting the login screen.  When she logs in it doesn't do anything.  Any ideas?01:50
rwwXodiac13: the older version of fglrx that (I presume) you want requires the older version of xorg in 8.10 or older.01:50
mordocaimechtech: Oh yeah, just looked through the list... looks like everyone is a seeder lol01:50
sebsebsebXodiac13: 8.10 is a nice release,  thing is it stops being supported  next April01:50
Xodiac13rww: o okay so ether or im good with 8.04 or 8.10 lol sorry im trying to make sure my video card will work01:50
=== ox is now known as helper
sebsebsebXodiac13: I think it's next April anyway for the desktop01:50
DasEiDiViN3:answered your pm01:50
mechtechmordocai: also, transmission is set to use a random port every time it starts, so to use port forwarding effectively, you either need to have the software use the UPnP ability, or set the port within the software yourself...I recommend anything above 1000001:51
Xodiac13sebsebseb: so go with 8.04 because it will be supported for a long time01:51
sebsebsebXodiac13: go for 8.10,  then if your up for it you  can do a clean install of 9.10 when it's out,   quicker than  upgrading through 9.04, plus then  if you do guided install (or choose  when setting partiitons up yourself) you get full Ext4 by default :)  totally worth people clean installing Ubuntu when 9.10 is out, for   the  default Extr4,  with much faster boot up time01:52
mordocaimechtech: Okay, thanks. I think it just may be no one is downloading. Though i'm going to double check the port forwarding.01:52
mechtechsebsebseb: i thought ext4 was still kinda experimental01:53
mechtechmordocai: I would01:53
sebsebsebmechtech: well yeah kind of  experimental in 9.04 I guess,   Fedora 11 uses by default, but it also has a later kernel,  and  Ubuntu 9.10 will have Ext4 by default with of course later kernel :)01:53
Xodiac13sebsebseb: okay and when i install 8.10 what type of partition should i use for fast boot-up and performance because im a gamer01:53
richardcavellGuys I want some software that shows a window on my computer listing all active TCP/UDP connections.  I want it to run in real time and to display in X11, not in a terminal.  Firestarter has something similar.  Is there any package similar to that?01:53
rwwXodiac13: ext3. 8.10's kernel doesn't support ext4.01:54
sebsebsebXodiac13: Ext4 is not an option in 8.10, so you do Ext301:54
Lineedbian that only showed a pid or something i stillRise get syntax errorr323 unexpected symbol &, i am using an ssh program via my iphone01:54
mechtechsebsebseb: :)01:54
Xodiac13sebsebseb: sorry i dont mean to keep asking but isnt ext2 faster than ext3 or is ext3 faster01:54
Lineedbianan sorry for the errorsr01:54
edbianLine: Show me the command you typed01:54
sebsebsebXodiac13: if you do 9.10  when released  and can't get your card working there,  well   then you can obviosuly  put  8.04  on01:55
edbianLine: You are ssh'd into an ubuntu box using bash script correcT?01:55
sebsebseb!ext3 |  Xodiac1301:55

Xodiac13sebsebseb: okay nice nice well im going to put ubuntu 8.10 on my machine thank you for the help01:56
mazda01richardcavell: i gave up. just going to do a fresh install and start over. I am going to export my mysql database and my home directory. just have to reinstall all apps and copy over the etc config files. I was able to take a hard drive and put it in another machine once, but I was trying to move an install from one hard drive to another. oh well.01:56
sebsebsebXodiac13: ok no probs01:56
richardcavellmazda01: good idea01:56
sebsebsebXodiac13: if you do a guided install01:56
Lineedbian i dont think so01:56
sebsebsebXodiac13: hold on a sec01:56
Xodiac13sebsebseb: have a good one and thanks again i appreciate it01:56
Xodiac13sebsebseb: okay01:56
edbianLine: You don't think so about what?01:56
sebsebsebXodiac13: if you do a guided install then you get everything in  /   and  it does swap for you01:56
jtropsDoes anyone have any idea why an update would cause 8.10 to stop auto login, and fail to load Gnome on login?01:57
mazda01richardcavell: partimage or similar shoudl work though. I just tried the tar route and found it to be too hard to get it working again.01:57
sebsebsebXodiac13: having a seperate home can be useful though,  if you set up the partitions yourself you can do that.01:57
richardcavellth0r: I just want it to say "http port 80 firefox 3kbytes/sec" or something like that01:57
Xodiac13sebsebseb: yeah ive been doing that its easier01:57
Lineedbian its just connecting to my openssh service01:57
richardcavellmazda01: yep.  I use clonezilla01:57
sebsebsebXodiac13: ok  well  clean install then :)01:57
Xodiac13sebsebseb: other distros i tried i would have enough for the OS and then swap and then home like you said01:57
edbianLine: Show me the command you're trying to issue?01:57
danbhfiveif my computer doesn't go to sleep for awhile, is there a way to figure out why?  (it seems to happen when firefox is open, but I would like to check if I can)01:57
sebsebsebXodiac13: ah ha you have been doing seperate home?01:58
Xodiac13sebsebseb: i will thank you have a good one01:58
mazda01richardcavell: i'll have to test that out. is it free?01:58
richardcavellmazda01: yep01:58
richardcavellmazda01: go to clonezilla's website and download the live CD01:58
mazda01richardcavell: do you run it from a livecd?01:58
Xodiac13sebsebseb: well i mean i seperate it with three partitions one for OS, swap, and where i have my programs01:58
sebsebsebXodiac13: ok01:58
richardcavellmazda01: it's really powerful.  Boot into live CD and you can go from disk/partition/image to disk/partition/image01:58
Lineedbian & /home/user/Desktop/squeezeslave -m 00:00:00:00:00:00 -r1001:59
Xodiac13sebsebseb: but i havent done that in a while i just do the option where it does it for me where it creates a swap for me01:59
edbianLine: The "&" goes at the end01:59
edbianLine: That command has no program!  Just arguments01:59
sebsebsebXodiac13: yeah go for that,    and you can try 9.10 when it's released as well,  which means you should clean install, as I already explained01:59
edbianLine: Unless you have a program named "edbian" :{01:59
Lineedvian D'oh thanks!01:59
th0rrichardcavell: I think there is a menu optino that will do that'01:59

FishsceneLancearate: I had a problem like that once.. Drove me crazy. 2 years later, I found it was a bad capacitor next to my CPU on the motherboard.02:02
jonesy_really its done my head in so much02:02
LancearateFishscene: D: how do you even test for that kind of thing02:02
jtropsIf I remember right when I had an ATI driver I had to make my settings in the xorg.conf file.02:03
FishsceneLancearate: I was unable to devise a test to find the problem, so I purchased a new PC and enver had problems. But 2 years after I did that, I examined my old mobo and found a capacitor had leaked jumk all over my mobo. I know I'm not offering much help, but intermittent hardware problems are VERY hard to diagnose. You can try pulling/swapping expansion cards. Pull the ones you don't need first, then swap out the other ones (like the video card02:04

I don't remember that coming up when I've done this in the psat. I guess i'll just mount it afterwards. don't want to risk deleting over 180 dvr'd shows with mythtv.02:15

triplcHello all. How to enable "vim:set ts=4"? I used to set small things like tabstops, syntax... embeded in text file. However, when I started using Jaunty, those "vim:set ts=4" no longer work.

sebsebsebjonesy_: and 8.04 even, which has a differtnet version of xorg02:51
killazzzhi02:51
sebsebsebjonesy_: there was  someone earlier,  who  had a card that woudn't work on 9.04 with the OpenGL support and all that, but it would work in 8.1002:51
killazzzis it safe to use this chat ?02:52
jeremdowLancearate: I see - check for that log - but if the NTFS drive is on the linux machine, then samba wouldn't be involved in an ftp transfer - I was still thinking ext4 - but the livecd rules that out too - I'm stumped for the moment02:52

killazzzok lol i was nervous for a sec.02:54
sebsebsebjonesy_: to make sure the ISO is good and   you want  the 8.10/intrepid section in  http://releases.ubuntu.com   of course it might not work in 8.10 or 8.04 either, but it's worth a try02:54
sebsebsebjonesy_: also  8.10  in certain ways is better than 9.04,  and with Ubuntu it's not about what is the latest, it's about what is supported02:55
sebsebseb!8.10 |  jonesy_02:55
ubottujonesy_: Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) was the ninth release of Ubuntu. Downloading: http://releases.ubuntu.com/8.10/ - Release Notes: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/releasenotes/81002:55

mehul_yadavand then downloaded the ubuntu 8.04 version03:52
thiebaudesebsebseb, i agree03:53

thiebaudemehul_yadav, is it just a blank video?03:56
sebsebsebFloridaGuy: Firefox can be a bit bad under Linux, or well  Ubuntu at least03:56

shazbotmcnastymehul_yadav, run firefox in terminal and see if it gives you any error messages when it closes03:57
FloridaGuysebsebseb, think its all linux03:57
mehul_yadavhow do i run firefox in the terminal?03:57
* sebsebseb Flash can cause quite a few issues with Firefox in Ubuntu03:57
shazbotmcnastyAndorin, don't you just drag and drop the file into the theme manager?03:57
bruenigmehul_yadav: run "firefox" in the terminal03:57
sebsebsebFloridaGuy: What do you think Linux is?03:58
thiebaudemehul_yadav, gksudo firefox03:58
mehul_yadavok03:58
sebsebsebmehul_yadav: you don't,   it's a  graphical browser03:58
sebsebsebmehul_yadav: don't do what he suggested03:58
Andorinshazbotmcnasty: Maybe that would work if this came with an .xml file, but this is just a bunch of .png images and a gtkrc.txt file.03:58
thiebaudegksudo03:58
sebsebsebmehul_yadav: if you do that your basically running Flash as root,  and that's not good03:58
sebsebsebmehul_yadav: Flash I meant Firefox03:58

mehul_yadavgksudo firefox04:00
nevynn2diy: without more ram I'd avoid using it as a workstation tho.04:00
sebsebsebFloridaGuy: your not the first person to say something  like that, but hey  we can expect this,   Flash is closed source04:00
thiebaudesebsebseb, but dont you open graphical programs from the terminal with gksudo not sudo04:01
sebsebsebFloridaGuy: and from a company that dosen't  really care about Linux04:01
oldude67n2diy, would be one heck of a dsl box tho04:01

kevdogkomputes: chatzilla04:08
Andorinshazbotmcnasty: Yes.04:08
n2diykomputes: I'm afraid to use anything with fstab, especially a gui that might not be mature.04:08
shazbotmcnastywell then, go inside the original file and find where the pictures for the theme are, and replace them with the ones that you've got04:09
thiebaude1sebsebseb: how do i change it, i switced over from xchat04:09
thiebaude1?04:09
ubuntu_they don't like me either04:09

shazbotmcnasty /nick thiebaude04:09
sebsebsebthiebaude1: switched over to what?  and  /knick04:09
draxowell it's a potential ubuntu problem too i would think. whenever i activate the restricted ati/amd fglrx driver and try to load up the "screen preferences" to change my resolution to dual screen it freezes on me. and the entire system just bogs until i restart04:09
thiebaude1yes04:09
kevdogthiebaude1: did you register your name with the nickserv?04:09
sebsebsebubuntu_: I joined soon after I told you to join, but  I didn't see you put anything04:10

ubottuLinux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu, please seek support in #linuxmint on irc.spotchat.org04:11
komputesnevyn: for a new user who I can't trust to run blkid and the update fstab himself04:11
kevdogn2diy:  How does it work?  rsync or something else?04:11
DocZettabut I wasn't sure how ubuntu would handle it, so I installed easyBCD and ran it, and reinstalled the vista bootloader.04:11
DocZettaso now I'm not even sure if it's safe to reboot.04:11
komputesnevyn: basically just to select a drive and have it mount at startup04:12
ubuntu_join what?04:12
forces!lts04:12
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Hardy (Hardy Heron 8.04).  The next LTS release is scheduled to be 10.0404:12
n2diykevdog: yes, gui front end for rsync, I've been using it for two weeks now to mirror /home/me to my test box down stairs.04:12
komputesnevyn: something which i feel should be included in ubuntu (like right click on drive, proprties, then select that you wanted mouted at startup)04:12
nevynkomputes: so a user needs to add internal harddisks to his system..?04:12
sebsebsebshazbotmcnasty: sometimes I may join the channal if not already in it,  when I refer someone there,  to  see if others are helping with the issue,  and  possibily to assist with it myself04:12
DocZettaif anyone's wondering, I do not have a backup or bootable Vista 64 disk.04:13
nevynkomputes: how are the drives we're talking about connected?04:13
DocZettajust a hidden partition.04:13
nevynDocZetta: those are evil!.04:13
shazbotmcnastyI still never got any damn help with localhost. Does anyone know how to unblock localhost, I'm trying to get bitlbee to work correctly, but localhost denies my connection.04:13
komputesnevyn: yep just to select a partition to mount at starup - internal drive (sata or ide)04:13
kevdogn2diy: Although I love the concept of rsync -- its really buggy for me -- seems to drop with large transfers -- meaning files that are really large.  Does this happen to anyone else?04:13
DocZettanevyn: tell me about it. it's partly why I'm afraid to shut this off and reboot.04:13
shazbotmcnastysebsebseb, it was kinda a joke, I was mocking ubuntu_04:13
DocZettaI'm in Vista 64 now.04:13
komputesnevyn: any way to do that other than editing fstab?04:13
sebsebsebshazbotmcnasty: oh  right, didn't pick up on that04:13
ubuntu_why am i being mocked now?04:13
shazbotmcnasty:)04:14
thiebaude1how do i change my nick?04:14
n2diykevdog: I recall reading something like that, you might google it, I think there is a cli switch to limit transfer size, so you can span over a couple CDs, but I'm not sure of that?04:15
DocZettabut does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I don't want to be stuck in Vista, and this laptop is less than two months old.04:15

dragonhow can i remove the config files associated with a package after i've removed the package itself?04:21
ctmjrn2diy: i second that what MK13  says04:21
stormchas2000nickhere  i agree with you04:21
trask1pidgin owns, if irc is all u use there or u hack around alot other clients can compete04:22
ding_kevdog, I believe it's implemented in python but that it does use rsync... a check on it's package dependencies should answer that one though...04:22
bipulhi04:22

donnybrascohello - I've started getting an error message when I boot my computer (and it seems to be running sluggishly all of a sudden).  The error reads "Enter password for default keyring to unlock - the application 'NetworkManager Applet (/usr/bin/nm-applet) wants access to the default keyring, but it is locked" can anyone help?04:24
sebsebsebdsdeiz: nickhere got muted or something I think04:24
ding_kevdog, unison is a two-way syncing utility. rdiff-backup is designed to keep a record of changes over time, so you can say, retrieve a directory or file from a certain date or number of days back in time...04:24
jeremdowtrask1: thanks - I'm happy with it except being able to have multiple channels tiled - you can do it but trickier in ubuntu because you can't automatically tile the windows.04:25
n2diyMK13: the box I'm working on is a 650mhz machine, with a 128 m of ram. I'd rather be working on the 1200mhz, 256 m ram box, but, the video controller is dead on the MB, and I don't have a PCI card to drop in it.04:25
ding_I believe it also does some fancy footwork with hard links to save disk space04:25
rafaelscji think my gprs connection is faster on ubuntu than on windows...04:25
dsdeizsebsebseb: oh okay04:25
kevdogding_: Ok I get the difference but does it choke with large file sizes like unison?  Sometimes with unison for me if I have a file that is like 100-200 MB in size (or bigger) the process chokes!04:25
flandersIs there anything more up to date than "wipe" and "secure-delete"? These two programs have not been updated for several YEARS. Isn't there a wipe tool that is more recent, and takes into account journaling filesystems and newer harddrive techonlogies?04:26

pehdenany one have a sullution to my issue04:26
sebsebsebrb789: the learning curve isn't  that steep04:26
flandersroy_hobbs: You have to switch the desktop mode.04:26
ding_well, since it uses the rsync protocol, it will try to compute deltas. That's where the trouble can happen with large files... There's probably a way to turn off the delta computation aspect...04:26
roy_hobbsflanders: where/how?04:26
rafaelscjhow to get the nameserver from an IP address?04:27

pehdenif anything you can test ubuntu with live cd04:27
DocZettabah. I'm a noob. I haven't even had ubuntu a week yet.04:27

zherkehziHey quick question. How much damage could a virus do to my ubuntu machine if it ran it's self through wine?04:28
sebsebsebzherkehzi: none at all04:28
jeremdowflanders: the netbook mode uses extra ram?04:28
shazbotmcnastybut yes, I think it's an easy thing to learn, there are many many websites, and a great community of people to help you if you don't understand something. rb78904:29
sebsebsebzherkehzi: Windows  viruses only infect Windows04:29
zherkehzikewlbeans thanks!04:29

=== HttpError is now known as evilNirvana
flandersI mean, it's not a memory hog, only about 20 MB. So if you prefer the netbook launcher desktop, then keep it. I prefer the classic desktop mode, after getting tired of the rigid netbook desktop mode. Plus, it saves a bit of RAM as well, if you don't use it.04:31
flandersI don't mean to repeat unneccesarily, but:04:32
flandersIs there anything more up to date than "wipe" and "secure-delete"? These two programs have not been updated for several YEARS. Isn't there a wipe tool that is more recent, and takes into account journaling filesystems and newer harddrive techonlogies?04:32
rockoIs their a dimming app? for notebooks?04:32
jeremdowflanders: I'm just surprised, I use the classic desktop, but i would have assumed netbook mode would have a smaller memory footprint.04:33
pehdenubuntu 9.04 has that ability preinstalled04:34
ExMachinai found a cool hax, just type /quit whoever, and it'll quit them from irc04:34

Entelinive got a sblive (emu10k) soundcard, its known good. however interestingly, when recording it seems to lock up, ive got two of the same exact card, and two different computers both running ubuntu, same results in any combination.  when recording in audacity for example it will briefly record, and then cease recording04:41
pe2kevdog: thanks04:41
Entelinsubsequent recording attempts will cease working completely04:41
lotusstanley_, I dunno.  I know there's media repositories and stuff, you're sure you downloaded the right packages?  Search google for ubuntu dvd codecs04:41
kevdogpehden:  Compiling from source is easy04:41
lotusrichardcavell, I'm not sure why, empathy homepage says it supports IRC04:42
kevdogpehden: Have you ever done any installing from source before?04:42
richardcavelllotus: I know but I can't see which protocol04:42
stanley_lotus...ok then, I downloaded and installed everything i was told to on the documentation04:42
richardcavelllotus: anyway I'm happy with xchat04:42
GodfatherofEireSay, is there any way to get a sort of kernel compatibility layer, to cause different hardware to be recognized (with lesser capabilities than what is actually present), by a host operating system?04:43
kevdogWhy is creating a bz2 tar archive so slow??  Rhetorical question04:43
lotusrichardcavell, I use xchat ftw :)  pidgin has too many pop-up windows (nameserv, all the greet bots, etc)04:43
richardcavellkevdog: it just is04:43
pehdenkevdog the source is set for windows, from what i have read in the code04:43
lotusstanley_, got me, someone else might know more sorry04:43
stanley_lotus: thanks anyway man04:44
richardcavellkevdog: I tried backing up my internal hard disk to a bz2 file and could have fallen asleep waiting for it.  It's not much smaller than gzip04:44
richardcavellkevdog: that is to say, the resulting image is not much smaller with bz2 than with gz04:44
pehdenkevdog thats why im here i new to this04:45
ojaidoes anyone know how to disable ipv6 in jaunty?04:45
kevdogI just aborted bz2 creation and am going with gz -- Hopefully its faster04:45
kevdogpehden:  Why do you want filezilla anyway -- linux has better utilities04:45
ojaiused to be easy by commenting out the line in /etc/modprobe.conf/aliases back in the day but doesn't like that file exists anymore04:46
kevdogYea this gz archive creation is faster!!!04:47

omegamormegilkbp:  Viruses exploit security vulnerabilities in the software they attack.  Linux has less vulnerabilities, and when they are found they are patched.  Also, people writing viruses want to go after Windows because it's so much more commonly used.  They get more bang for their buck.05:28

ubottu!GTK and !Qt are !GUI toolkits (i.e. software libraries that draw buttons, textboxes, etc). !GNOME, !KDE, !Xfce and friends are "!desktop environments", which build on top of such libraries to provide a "consistent" desktop experience. !Kubuntu and !Xubuntu are simply flavors of Ubuntu that come with KDE and Xfce (respectively) installed as default, instead of GNOME.

gmachine24Purpley, the first big viruses in the U.S. hacked Unix systems06:12
Gneam0r0n: I don't know what programs you've installed... what version of ubuntu are you on?06:12
Eric_J1it was fine and then it just went crazy06:12
rodimus_linuxguy2009, how come they didnt come up with something that looks better?06:12
rodimus_like a real icon.06:12
BellinXFelonhow come i don't have any audio output in konqueror?06:12
mechtechgmachine24: more like, if you infect windows machines, you're more likely to get business critical systems to break06:12
rodimus_instead of green dot06:12
m0r0nGnea: Jaunty06:12
Gneakyppcgeek: do you have anything constructive to add to the conversation?06:12
linuxguy2009rodimus_: If you dont like it, dont use it. Simple.06:12
nomad77Purpley: if you want reassurance try installing chkrootkit,and,rkhunter and see what results are06:12
Ademanthanks moymoy06:12
gmachine24mechtech: Indeed.06:12
PurpleyIm aware of that, its not hard to infect ubuntu im just simply saying all of these files downloaded from different sources apparently are doing the same thing06:13
Gneam0r0n: k, where does it seem to be loading slow?06:13
PurpleyI would think it would be something else causing this06:13

Eric_J1nothing - the section for Default Devices is just blank and unclickable06:13
Eric_J1before I had 3 or 4 options06:14
Gneam0r0n: what happens if you make a new account and login with it? does it login slow or fast after the first time?06:14
mechtechPurpley: the files are probably not infected, they might be doing what an unrelated virus is telling them to do...or that your trash is puking because a virus has made it ill06:14
omegamormegilPurpley:  It's much more likely to be a bug or a screwy setting than a virus.  Try Shift+Delete.  This bypasses the recycle bin with no hope for recovery.06:14
Purpleygmachine24, they hacked unix systems because they were the only thing around that is useful06:14

gmachine24One of the first major viruses was by the son of a top security guy at DARPA. That was kind of embarassing.06:15
Purpleyfail lol06:16
gmachine24but I digress06:16
PurpleyBut then that makes sense because he would have more insight to what he was up against06:16
Eric_J1kyppcgeek: is there another command to try?06:16

skreechThe nvidia driver updated itself somehow without me asking it anything and changed my xorg.conf to some setting with a refresh rate outside of the monitor's range. I found that and fixed it but now I can't get any resolution higher than 640x480. The normal dpokg-reconfigure doesn't work, nvidia-config doesn't work nvidia-settigns doesn't work editing and adding the modelines by hand doesn't work06:19

omegamormegilbtw Linux is specifically a reference to the kernel.  A bunch of the rest of what we lump together as "Linux" was written by lots of different people.06:19
Gneam0r0n: well, you need to get the PID of the program - just:  ps axf   by itself and you'll see where it's listed06:19
linuxguy2009skreech: Do you have the nvidia driver from the repos or manually installed from nvidia.com?06:19
=== genericcutename is now known as Voss

linuxguy2009I mean AAC06:22

linuxguy2009Wolvez: Sound Converter from add/remove is a great transcoder app.06:22
skreechPurpley: snapshot the filesystem06:22
Purpleyahh never mind what im thinking of is impossible06:23
skreechlinuxguy2009: Actually I just rolled back the driver to 173 instead of 18006:23
PurpleyWhen I installed linux I overwrote an encrypted bootloader06:23
mechtechadios06:23
skreechPurpley: probably not :)06:23
skreechah no that's probably hosed then06:23
PurpleySo i was wondering if i could restore everything so it was as if linux was never installed and the bootloader was still there06:23
PurpleyBut linux overwrote it06:24
StupidPigeonlinux has a funny way of doing that06:24
skreechlinuxguy2009: You meant drop to VESA?06:24
skreechall OSes have a funny way of doing thta.a it's the only way they can be used06:24
omegamormegilPurpley:  doubtful06:24
linuxguy2009skreech: I know nothing of VESA06:24
skreechlinuxguy2009: What did you mean then?06:25
m0r0nGnea:  My other account log in fast06:25
linuxguy2009skreech: Is your driver fixed?06:25
omegamormegilPurpley:  Unless you manually backed up your boot sector before installing Linux, or imaged your hard drive.06:26
Gneam0r0n: then you've got something in your home directory that's chewing up hard drive space06:26
skreechwhat do you mean fixed?06:26
PurpleySo im stuck with linux but to be honest after a week or two of getting used to it; its not that bad its actually alot better considering the fact although not as many programs are available for ubuntu than windows it makes up for that with its speed and reliability06:26
skreechI would guess so It's the one I was using before nvidia went nuts06:26
linuxguy2009skreech: Forget it, I cant help you.06:26
skreechBut now I can't set my resolution06:26
skreecheven if I set it manually then it still only gives me the option of 640x48006:26
Purpleyomegamormegil, I backed up the bootloader but for some reason when i inserted it, it was a ubuntu live cd how ironic considering the fact i could never find where i placed my live cd :)06:27

sy1sorry I have that06:47
kbpomegamormegil: thank you I will google it06:47
skreech Even if I take that out of the old file and restart X I only get 640x48006:48
Eric_J1anyone?06:48
professor_skreech: what has google turned up with that model and ubuntu06:48
moymoySp0d: paste what you have so far on pastebin06:48

skreechprofessor_: Crap load of errors. including the one I saw with the refresh being wrong and the resolution being gimped . The wirkaround doesn't seem to work with me06:48
Eric_J1damn...06:48

professor_skreech: so others have had problems with that monitor on ubuntu?06:49
Eric_J1any idea when that will be fixed?06:49
squiggiecan anyone help me with a simple shell script?06:49
* skreech shurgs. Some monitor like this. Sony and JVC and such06:49
linuxguy2009Eric_J1: What cards?06:49

ShapeShifter499nvm I think I'm good now06:49
ShapeShifter499bye06:49
professor_skreech: some monitors have poor EDID and they make up for it in Windows drivers or something06:49
Eric_J1Creative Labs X-Fi Fatal1ty and Realtek '9706:49
moymoysquiggie: go ahead and tell us what you want the script to do06:49
linuxguy2009Eric_J1: Realtek should work out of the box. X-Fi is a no go for sure.06:50
skreechprofessor_: Right but it was workng right up until Ubuntu decided to install some packages silently06:50
tbryantI just installed Ubuntu 9.04, but when I try to "sudo apt-get upgrade" most things went through, but I have some packages that didn't upgrade and won't, and I can't run Firefox.06:50
professor_just keep trying searching google for a while and let me know how you go, I have had this problem in the past with a Viewsonic monitor too06:50
professor_were you using binary nvidia drivers previously?06:50
skreechThis is a dell monitor could be anythign behind it :)06:50
Eric_J1they were working fine until a day or two ago06:50
professor_how old is your install?06:50
skreechYes06:50
Eric_J1both06:50
linuxguy2009Eric_J1: Creative has beta X-Fi drivers thats about all there is from what I hear.06:50
professor_skreech: did you customise or install anything not from synaptic?06:50
omegamormegilbrEz:  In the VirtualBox settings for that VM, go to the “Network” page and select “Host Interface” in the drop down list for the “Attached to” field.06:51
skreechprofessor_: Yes but 173. I had the machine running for a few days and came home and rebooted to find a 180 driver and no X06:51
linuxguy2009Eric_J1: What did you change?06:51
squiggiemoymoy: itunes has seemed to created a lot of duplicates on my audio folder and it appended most of them with a 1 so i just need to loop through each folder in the library deleting *1.mp306:51
professor_skreech: change any config files previously06:51
Eric_J1I think I was using those, but I've had sound for the last month os so that I was using ubuntu06:51
professor_skreech: well that's a good start06:51
skreechprofessor_: Nope Ubuntu did a silent upgrade to 180 driver06:51
Eric_J1the only thing I can think of was that I installed Virtual Box06:51
professor_skreech: it narrows it down06:51
Eric_J1but I've played games with sound since then06:51
Cryptic_Donkeytbryant,  Have you tried using the xmission mirrors?06:51
professor_skreech: upgrades shouldn't happen automatically unless you tell it06:51
=== Guest63000 is now known as Homer|ZzZz
moymoysquiggie: you don't need a shell script to do that.. one line of command will suffice06:51
Cryptic_Donkeytbryant,  Have you tried using the xmission mirrors?06:51
professor_skreech: google version 180 driver with that monitor model see what happens please06:51
linuxguy2009Eric_J1: So sound just wont work in virtualbox or on your main ubuntu system itself?06:51
jigpehello how to install windowsxp in ubuntu (dual boot) i already install ubuntu and use all space for ubuntu..06:51
skreechWhich has issues with my video card. it sets the range pretty high for refresh so X doesn't work06:52
brEzomegamormegil: I definatly don't have that :P06:52
Eric_J1it stopped working once I deleted the Virtual Box partitions06:52
tbryantCryptic_Donkey, no, going to try that now.06:52
sebsebsebjigpe: What do you want to use XP for?06:52
linuxguy2009jigpe: Install Windows  then Linux, in that order.06:52
skreech I fixed that then found the resolution was shot. Found out I had the 180 driver and rolled back to 17306:52
squiggiemoymoy: i have the ls -R | grep 1.mp3 but how do I delete them?06:52
professor_skreech: what video card06:52
professor_skreech: google that and ubuntu too06:52
sebsebseblinuxguy2009: it can be done the other way round to,  and  sometimes it's way better to recommend a virtual machine06:52
Eric_J1I am assuming it had something to do with the Kernel updates, since I think it was a recent thing, but no idea06:52

Sp0dokay here it goes, and yes im new to this :P http://paste.ubuntu.com/240915/06:53
squiggiemoymoy: thanks, i will give that a try06:53
skreechprofessor_: Right and it has a workaround for the problem But that doesn't work either06:53
sebsebseblinuxguy2009: sometimes? a lot of the time more like it, unless they are a Windows 3D gamer06:53
linuxguy2009sebsebseb: Well dont tell me, I already know that. Tell eric06:53
professor_skreech: if google does not turn anything up which I think it should06:53
linuxguy2009hehe06:53

professor_skreech:06:53

tate>I renamed my home directory by mistake, now I am unable to login. Is there a way yo create a user with administrative privileges using sudo06:56

toyimpI picked up a GTK2.x theme and for some reason the windows are not transparent like they look in the pic. Why?06:56
Purpleysebastien__, what is the best file system to use?06:57
sebsebsebskreech: yep default  for 9.10,  which means  people that have  Ubuntu on Ext3, should clean install Ubuntu for 9.10 and  the Ext4 when it's time :)  for full Ext4 support06:57
omegamormegilbrEz:  This version calls it a Bridged Network.06:57
Purpleysebsebseb, what is the best file system to use06:57
professor_please do try the other conf by renaming it to xorg.conf after backing up the current one just in case, reboot, and look through xorg log06:57

tbryantI'm getting a bunch of dpkg errors when I try to "sudo apt-get upgrade" my freshly-installed system. Can anyone help?06:58
sebsebsebPurpley: depends on  what the computer is being used for,   but for  home usage,   Ext3  is  alright for now,  Ext4   is on the verge of replacing it though as the default file system for most  desktop Linux distros :)06:58
skreechprofessor_: Xlog I doubt will have anything it thinks 640x480 is just grand06:58
Cryptic_Donkeytbryant, I suguuesg that you  force quit all instances of firefox and try the updates again06:58
sebsebsebskreech: yes, but the Ext3 to Ext4 conversion isn't good enough, so for full Ext4 support you must clean install06:58
skreechok06:58
professor_skreech: also please look for xorg refresh rates for your monitor06:58
toothdecayhmmm, Audacious or Quod Libet, I can't decide!06:58
professor_skreech: neither config seems to specify refresh rates (old one is commented out) for some reason, not sure if that is usual06:58
tbryantCryptic_Donkey, there aren't any instances of Firefox :\06:58
brEzall my settings are right, I'll just upll my hair out, rather than flood the ubuntu room with offtopic ;P06:58

professor_skreech: doesn't look like there is a workaround there and if you tried some of those suggestions I wonder if another possibility would be to drop back to software nvidia driver 'nv' and reinstall the binary drivers from scratch using the restricted or hardware drivers option in ubuntu07:26
introubleand what a bitch the thingy was07:26
HalfBloodPrinceHey, can someone help?07:26
skreechprofessor_: Hmm maybe07:26
OhioErichi everyone07:27
skreechHalfBloodPrince: WE don't know07:27
HalfBloodPrince:P07:27
professor_skreech: disclaimer - I am no expert - just been using Nvidia binary drivers for 10 years on linux07:27
HalfBloodPrinceWell I was interested in the 'Dust' GTK+ theme07:27
introubleim on live ubuntu 6.06 install and i fdownloaded 9.04 burned it to a cd but the cd does not work!!!! i try to boot from the cd and it fails, it says no emulation???????07:27
professor_skreech: so I have some experience with nvidia binary issues although thankfully they are quite rare nowdays07:27
introubleso how come the cd that i burned with ubuntu 6.06 out of ubuntu 9.04 iso image didnt become bootable?07:27
professor_all - KDE4 seems to be stable on ubuntu although some plasma apps like to crash07:27
introublepls help.... ^07:28
professor_I need to read up on ubuntu and KDE in general I think07:28
HalfBloodPrinceWhen i installed ubuntu Dust was already available, though not "fancy". i tried installing the downloaded one it says "Can't move directory over directory"07:28
moymoyintrouble: did you use brasero? or did that not exist in 6.06? i have no idea07:28
introublemoymoy, i used the built in burner in 6.0607:29
skreechprofessor_: Wow I've only been using them for 2 months and I hate them07:29
moymoyHalfBloodPrince: that's because the theme was already installed, and thus the Dust directory was already in your themes folder.. and gnome-appearance-manager couldn't replace it07:29
professor_skreech: how so07:29
moymoyintrouble: maybe you can try using dd to trasfer the image onto disk07:29
moymoyintrouble: you should first check the iso for errors anyway... do a md5sum on it to see if it's alright07:30
skreechI've had more trouble with them in two months than the three years of my ATI card07:30

brummbaer456so i just changed the apache config in my server to run name-based virtual hosts so i can host multiple sites on the same box. everything works great on local machine, but from other pc internal & external i get an err. checking err log shows it's requesting /htdocs instead of /var/www/site1 or site207:33
professor_skreech: really?  that's not good07:34
professor_skreech: I am using a GeForce 6600 and latest Ubuntu with a Viewsonic monitor and seems happy07:34
eltumehow do I play a disc with Ubuntu 9.04 Minimal CD ???07:34
skreechprofessor_: Plus nvidia just dropped support for a whle set of cards with no real alternative07:35
brummbaer456i checked http.conf, apache2.conf and the /etc/apache2/sites-available/site1 and 2 and everything looks right, anything else i may be missing?07:35
professor_skreech: but older nvidia drivers will still work for those cards right, that's only to support newer cards?07:35

moymoyeltume: the linuxmint channel on this server is unofficial it says.. try looking on their website for it instead07:43

moymoySp0d: where you have the if [ blah ] lines... you use the variable "answer" but you entered it as "&answer" when it should be "$answer"07:56
professor_stryker: it's early evening here lol07:56

professor_stryker: anything on google?07:58
strykerproffessor_: nope07:58
moymoyprofessor_: that's fine.. WHOA! which reminds me.. i should link you to a post on ubuntuforums that inspired me .. it's all about the uses of bash scripting.. really interesting07:58
moymoyprofessor_: lemme findi t07:58
owen1i try to open firefox but it tells me it's already open, i type: ps aux | grep firefox  and see it. when trying to kill it with pkill/killall it say :no process killed, and next time i run ps i see different number. any clues?07:58
professor_moymoy: please!07:58
SuhailDoes this mean: http://dehs.alioth.debian.org/report.php?package=python-mysqldb that's not been packaged yet?07:59
moymoyprofessor_: it has a nice little story that goes with it too..08:00
moymoyprofessor_: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=23356408:00
Sp0dmoymoy: it still closes the script no matter which option i choose still.  I checked the system monitor and it didn't open the server and hid it either.  Thanks for the input though08:00
professor_thanks!!!!08:00
Sudommoymoy : really ? that's already open, i type : ps aux | grep firefox and see it08:00
strykerprofessor_: he also says there is a blinking cursor, as if it is waiting for him to write something08:00
moymoySp0d: are all the other scripts executable? chmod them?08:01

nomad77owen1: i'd install htop and kill all firefox processes08:01
professor_stryker: does it look like it gets past the boot loader08:02
strykerproffessor_: it technically hasn't finished restarting08:02
moymoySp0d: okay .. if you type in `whereis [` in the terminal, you'll find that it's its own command just like `if` or `mv` or anything else.. same thing applies for `]`08:02
strykerproffessor_: see the thing is, he was doing the same thing with his laptop, and after the restart finished, the laptop's screen has gone dead and it does not show anything, so he's worried he'll mess up the desktop as well08:02
moymoySp0d: so at the end of `if [ "$answer" = "1"]` .. you need a space between the quote and ] .. so it should be `" ]` not `"]`08:03
addisonanyone here able to help me get cURL enabled?08:03
professor_stryker: hard reset? can anyone here advise if that is wise08:03
moymoySudom: what? what was your problem?08:04
professor_sp0d: please paste the working script when you get it going08:04

papuli want a linux distro that i less than 100 mb download, contains no gui and has irssi08:10
papulgot no answer in ##linux08:11
drew212is anyone able and willing to help me install the ACX drivers?08:11
owen1nomad77: i don't see firefox. even when searching with / sign i don't see it.08:11
nomad77well logout/login then i guess08:12
strykernp, just make sure you extract it and and place it under .mozilla/plugins folder in the /home directoy, you might need to make the plugins folder, HalfBloodPrince08:12
moymoypapul: the ubuntu minimal install is 50MB08:12
moymoypapul: has no gui08:12
papulmoymoy: can i use irsii with it?08:12
nomad77gotta go08:13
moymoypapul: i would assume you'd have to install some independencies .. but i think irsii is in the repos, so apt-get'ing it should have it working flawlessly .. and irssi doesn't need graphics to run so you'er good08:13
moymoypapul: but i prefer weechat =p08:13
drew212anyone willing to help me with the ACX drivers?08:14
owen1papul: irssi is the best client for irc08:14

HalfBloodPrincestryker, i can't find /.mozilla in /home08:15
drew212bazhang: are you in the house?08:15
papulowen1: can i install thru pen drive??08:15
moymoypapul: the package manager handles it.. if perl is a dependency, then it'll be automatically installed by apt or aptitude08:15
strykerHalfBloodPrince: do you have the settings so that the hidden folders are shown?08:15
papulmoymoy: ubuntu minimal has apt??08:16
owen1papul:i heard it's only possible to install from usb if there is a live cd. not sure if it's true.08:16
moymoypapul: yes, that's why it's a network install.. it downloads all the most recent packages (unless you tell it not to download ANYTHING at all, then it's basically just the linux kernel and some of the ubuntu stuff like apt)08:16
papulmoymoy: thats great08:17
stryker.mozilla is a hidden folder halfbloodprince, open home and lick on Edit>Preferences08:17

HektoRhey guys ... is there any way to install IE tab for FireFox on ubuntu ?08:31
moymoyPhantom1654: on the bright side.. what if it's just your monitor broken? or just a loose connection for opening your lid up too much (laptop right?) .. in that case you should try plugging in svideo or whatever to your TV to see if it works08:32
stronzehektor - im pretty sure there is an add-on in firefox that has IE tab08:32
Phantom1654moymoy: Also I thought of the auto BIOS reset. If the laptop is left without energy for more than 72 hours it does a reset08:32
moymoyPhantom1654: 3 days is a long time =[08:33
Phantom1654moymoy: I tried connecting it to a external monitor and it doesn't show any images neither the BIOS08:33

Boohbahclarinet: sorry, that will get you no graphics :)09:55
ikoniadiddy: why are you not using the useradmin tools to setup the user ?09:55
diddygrawity, Are asterisks allowed there09:55
clarinetI know that.09:55
ikoniadiddy: are you trying to create a user by adding details to /etc/passwd09:55
diddyikonia, this is a test question.09:55
grawitydiddy: Yes, they mean that the password is stored in '/etc/shadow'.09:55
allquixoticcarboy87: Have you ever successfully started Ubuntu in "normal mode" (i.e., not low graphics mode)?09:55

clarinetBoohbah: I know that.09:56
ueaoueoaaoeoI *want* (not need) a program that'll back up the partition I'm using by automatically somehow unmounting it, running clonezilla (with saved data so I dont have to do anything), and then going back into tho system09:56
diddyikonia, OK09:56
grawitydiddy: Ah, hmm09:56
ueaoueoaaoeothat would be great09:56
allquixoticcarboy87: Then something has changed on your system lately -- you might have performed an upgrade, installed third party software, accidentally deleted some files...09:56
allquixoticcarboy87: Something has caused Ubuntu's graphics driver for your video card to fail, where it worked before.09:56
* grawity curses Nautilus for trying to automount a filesystem that is still being resized.09:56
carboy87no i was just talking to people online and all of a sudden my computer froze and thats where i am09:57

allquixoticcarboy87: Your computer "froze"? You mean everything, including the mouse cursor?09:57
carboy87yes09:57
carboy87i had to turn it off09:57
allquixoticcarboy87: That's called a kernel panic.09:57
carboy87and restart manually]09:57
carboy87kernal panic09:57
ueaoueoaaoeoi dont like having to reboot and load a whole other distro to back up. has anyone found a better way???09:57
bazhangPaschu, install it09:57
allquixoticcarboy87: When you experience a kernel panic, it's possible that you might lose data if the operating system has recently written to a file that hasn't been pushed out to disk.09:58
Paschui havent ubuntu installed yet09:58
Paschui said that more than 5 times  xD09:58
allquixoticcarboy87: If you installed updates using Update Manager shortly before the panic, it's possible that the updates were only partially committed, which might put the graphics driver in a bad state.09:58
bazhangPaschu, please chat in #ubuntu-offtopic ; here is support ONLY09:58
Paschuah k09:58
