flacosuch as php or perl00:31
flacoany advise ?00:31
CoyotesOne file or a large collection?00:31
flacoone file00:31

flacowell am on wireless00:32
flacothe server disconnectes me00:32
CoyotesDo you pay $$$$/MB?00:32
CoyotesThe server should support resume...00:32
CoyotesIf not, I can get it and then send you it in a multipart archive.00:33
flacoalso my other question is  am running apache and tomcat6 together00:33
CoyotesBest thing is that the multipart archive tells you where the error is most times.00:34
flacoi will have to see what happens00:34
CoyotesYou do an MD5 if it shows and error and I look at the MD5 signature of ones on my drive... and only resend that one.00:34

ubuntuI'm so stupid!!00:55
ubuntuI had a few partitions on my hdd00:55
avihaybwell, that can't be helped, sory00:55
ubuntusda1 was free, sda2 win, sda3 delted (no existing no more) and then there was entended thet was sda 4 swap and sda 500:56
ubuntuI now installed some opensolaris to sda1 only00:56
ubuntuit changed my grub, no more linux, I have no back up00:56
ubuntubootet from live cd00:56
flacoyou can edit the  grub00:56
flacoand tell it to boot so where you want00:57
ubuntuand now gparted shoes: sda1 9,141 GB ext 2   solaris, 5 Mb unallocate, sda2 ntfs wind, and rest unallocated.00:57
ubuntuit does only show primary partitions but no longer the logical partitions they are marked as one block of unallocated - size fits00:58
avihaybso it looks like the solaris installation removed the other partitions?00:58
ubuntuI'm soooooo dumb. I have no backup.00:58
ubuntubut solaris is ONLY on sda100:58
ubuntuit has not created a solaris partition where the logical ones where. it's still there the space, free but unallocated00:59
ubuntuPLEEEEASe tell me I can save that somehow  - I will never again play around without having made a backup before00:59
James147can you pastebin the output of "sudo fdisk -l"?00:59
avihaybwell, there is a software that can help you guess where exacly the partitions are. if you recreate them in exacly the same size, you lose no data01:00
ubuntujames147: http://pastebin.com/m4ffa4dcd01:01
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about gpart01:02
ubuntuavihayb: that would be good. though difficult. I now in total it was about 15 GB - I recently changed from WIndows. And I used the big part - the ntfs for bigger files, so 15 was suffcient for linus (14 root and 600 swap, and I don't reeecall anymore)01:03
avihaybhow do you ask ubottu about a package?01:03
ubuntui curse belenix  (the opensolaris distro) it says it would destroy all data on THE ONE partition I tell him (sda1), not that my logical partitions will all be gone.01:04
ubuntunow that'S how i pay for my curiosity01:05
ubuntujames147: have you read my paste?01:05

jonskaHello. Is anyone available to answer a question about mount/fstab?02:55
hackerxwhat about it02:55
jonskaI am using the "user" option in fstab, and I can indeed mount the filesystem in question, but it is owned by root and has perms 755, so I can't write to it.02:56
hackerxyou can use sudo to access root02:57
hackerxand use chmod to change the file permissions02:58
jonskaYes, but I have other filesystems handled identically in fstab, and they are automatically owned by me when I mount them. I do not know why one filesystem is handled one way, and the other a different way even though their fstab entries are identical with regards to configuration options.02:59
hackerxnot an expert here but depends on who created the filesystem..03:00
hackerxsystem sets ownership permissions based upon who created the filesystem03:01
avihaybjonska: look for the "The non-superuser mounts" section in the "mount" manpage03:01
jonskaThanks for the advice, will research more.03:04
JJmanDoes anyone know how to customize panels in KDE.  I need to have the panel have a Task manager (the running apps) but only specific ones so that my main panel doesn't also show them.03:10
avihaybjonska: what fs are you trying to mount? most file systems that don't support file permissions the linux way, have an option like umask, uid and gid03:10
avihaybyou can look it up in the mount manpage, and put that option into the fstab.03:11
jonskaavihayb: I'm just trying to mount two reiserfs filesystems. They are configured identically in fstab, and the mount points are identical with respect to owner/perms, and the device entries in /dev are identical with respect to owner/perms, but when I mount one of the filesystems its mountpoint is changed to be owned by me, while the other one is owned by root and has its perms changed from 777 to 755 so that I cannot write to it.03:12
lizJJman: can't you right-click on the panel and customize that way?03:12
avihaybjjman: the taskman plasmoid has some filter features03:12
JJmanno i've tried that03:13
JJmanhmmm.  filter.  (cause i need to have 2 seperate task man's running in 2 diff. panels)  but i want apps to run seperately out of each one03:13
JJmanhmmm.  the filter lets me only show apps from a certain desktop.  which would almost work.  but  not quite.03:15
JJmanits still showing apps thats are on other desktops03:15
avihaybwell, the only filters you can use are to only show processes from this desktop or screen(if you have a multiple screen setup, I guess) and show all03:16
JJmanexxcept that it doesn't appear to be filtering properly.  its not showing EVERYTHING but its still showing ones on diff. desktop.03:17
JJmanwhats the diff. . between desktop & screens neway03:18
avihaybI think it's only aplicable in a multiple screens setup03:18
JJmanwell i'm running 4 desktops.  so if the bloody filter worked properly it would be what i need to put the specific apps on different desktops03:19

Hiratospecifically, I'd like to know what inside KDE depends on libpulse003:49
avihaybHirato: there are ways. the easyest, is to install synaptic, the package manager. it should tell you all of the information you need03:50
Hiratoon the libpulse package it'd tell me what libpulse0 depends on03:50
HiratoI'd like to know what depends on it03:50
avihaybyou can also ask to remove the package with apt-get or sinaptic. you'll get a list of what has to be removed03:51
Hiratoavihayb: I don't have the patience to shift through 288 packages that libpulse0's uninstallation will trigger :P03:52
BluesKajHirato, try to install with aptitude in the terminal, and the required dependencies should be installed alongside the app, if not the the required dependencies will be listed03:52

avihaybKingsley_: well, kubuntu is a bit more like windows then ubuntu in some areas.04:05
BluesKajKingsley_,  as far as desktop enviromnents go KDE (Kubuntu) will be more familaiar for windows users (myself included ) , but it's mostly a matter of taste .04:06

BluesKajaha. same route I took ...old pc , seems good to experiment with linux , putting your toe in the water so to speak04:09
avihaybthen I'd recommend you go with something a bit lighter like xubuntu04:09
Kingsley_Well I'll see how it runs I guess, and then format and try something else if its to much to handle04:09
avihaybI'm runing kubuntu on a p4 1.5ghz with 512MB04:09
BluesKajagreed , unless you upgrade the ram04:09
Kingsley_I'm just trying to get this computer as a dedicated TV using the old card I have04:10
avihayband it works, but it's not a smooth ride04:10
Kingsley_and all my OS install discs (W2K, XP) are freaking out on me, and aren't working at all :( So I decided to jump head first into Ubunut :)04:10
avihaybif you are gonna use the computer as a dedicated TV, you should get mythubuntu04:11
BluesKajKingsley_, 256 is a bit optimistic on any OS for handling video04:11
avihaybit's mythTV runing on xubuntu04:11
avihaybmythTV is a PVR software04:11
Kingsley_It was running 30FPS on some video resoloutions... :/04:11
Kingsley_and I've heard of MythTV04:12
Kingsley_I'll google that04:12
Kingsley_That seems to be the perfect route for me... I'll download that instead04:13
avihaybwhat are the specs of your system?04:13
Kingsley_I don't have it in front of me... :/04:14
inferno_livecdHey all04:14
Kingsley_taking a guestimate here... probably 1.7ghz 256mb and this old old old NVIDIA integrated graphics card... not even an AGP removeable04:15
BluesKaj mythtv , is a steep learning curve for a linux starter app04:15
Kingsley_Well I've got time to mess around... and I'm pretty computer savvy :/04:15
Kingsley_Only 15 here... :P04:16
inferno_livecdI have an interesting situation I need help with. I had a motherboard blow out, and ended up getting a new one. It came with a vid card. so I am using my old card in another machine that needs it. Im on the livecd in safe gphx mode. How do I reconfigure the graphics on my install from here.04:16
avihaybthere is a mythTV chanlle here in freenod. some guys helped me alot04:16
inferno_livecdKingsly I have to second BluesKaj's notion. MythTV is HARD to set up04:17
BluesKajKingsley_, yup #mythtv04:17
Kingsley_I'll try my best :P Not the end of the world of it doesn't work...ahaha04:18
inferno_livecdgood luck. I gave up on it and found easier solutions04:18
avihaybI looked in the ubuntu repositoris for an easyer solution for a while04:19
avihaybI tryed everything that didn't need me to burn a CD04:19
BluesKajactually Kingsley_ , linux nowadays is for bleeding edge users , especially in medai applications and setups. Windows actually lags in flexibility im many ways vs Linux in the media despt04:19
Kingsley_Well i'll be burning a CD for this one04:19
Kingsley_I don't like the idea of a live CD... :/04:20
Kingsley_Wait.. that didn't make sense lmao04:20
BluesKajdept.... i'm getting tired ...it's late04:20
inferno_livecdI ended up writing a script for Azureus (Vuze)  because it has a built in media center abillity that can stream to PS304:20
avihaybI'm getting tired, it's early :->04:20
Kingsley_Thanks for your help BluesKaj :)04:20
BluesKajyeah, but I'm old04:20
webbb_i hope someone can help me out im running kde 4.3 and i also have gnome installed but when i installed kxdocker it opens and where the dock should be i see the desktop backgrond for gnome04:20

apparleDr_Willis: remove/rename entries, change priorities, delay etc11:42

xsebsxdo you think the xfce had to do with it?11:47
Dr_Willisperhaps that Nicotine program has a homepage/forum that may shed some light on the problem11:47

Dr_Willisthe 6 mo release cycle ubuntu/kubuntu uses normally dosent do big 'version' changes. so normally its not an issue xsebsx11:54
Dr_Willisuntill the next 'release'11:55
Dr_WillisPython may be special. it came with 2.6 but you could also install 2.5 for compat with older programs.11:55
xsebsxDr_Willis: are all of these old resoures available in the repos? can one use old repos?11:57
Dr_Willisthey are in the same repo you are using now. try a 'apt-cache search python' and see how many 'versions' of python are there.11:57
xsebsxi know this seems offtopic but ive already started backingup and im ging to do a clean cd install11:59
xsebsxbut is it necessary tobe updating and upgrading everytime there are software updates?11:59

cypr1nushello, what can the problem with asus laptop and atheros wifi card, because the diode of wifi card lights only during the boot of the system and later it doesn't. Ifconfig shows it's up and I can scan networks but i can't connect to any, PLEASE HELP16:59
ubuntuwhat i really like about kubuntu / ubuntu anyway is the net connectivity...see, i'm using a Live! cd to connect to the net16:59
gjuliancypr1nus: With atheros wifi cards you need the module madwifi17:00
lelousiusi have a problem with installing kubuntu :( .. screen freezes after klicking on Install17:00
ubottuWireless documentation, including how-to guides and troubleshooting information, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs17:00
cypr1nusgjulian: really?17:00
ubuntulelousius: maybe your install cd is corrupted...you have to do integrity check ;)17:01
lelousiushmm ... :( .. i guess you mean the one on the cd .. crashes too :(17:03
ubuntulelousius: yep ;)17:04
ubuntulelousius: you need a fresh Live cd ;)17:04
lelousiusmaybe my blank discs are all broken (they seem not to be normal)17:06
lelousiusi tried 32 and 64 bit version .. and it crashed in both ..17:07
ubuntulelousius: get fresh ones ;)17:07
jhutchins_ltlelousius: Are you verifying each image file when you download it?17:07
ubuntu...of course17:07
ubuntulelousius: always do an integrity check ;)17:08
jhutchins_ltDefinitely worth the time to do so and not have to burn a bad file to disk, then see it fail.17:08
ubuntulelousius: another sure-fire avoidance of fragmented/corrupted files is by saving the file directly to a flash drive! you can even have a USB Live material! :) isn't that neat? ;)17:10

Byron_jussi01: I figured out what it was with my netbook. Had to change SATA to IDE instead of AHCI17:27
ubuntuaerora: first install your distro and then you can worry about your video card...see if your distro recognises it by running "dmesg"17:27
BluesKajaerora, look for that video card in your package manager to see if it's supported17:27
BluesKajsynaptic works yes17:27
Byron_Is anyone having issues with the repos? I keep getting this error: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/archive.canonical.com_ubuntu_dists_jaunty_partner_binary-i386_Packages. The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.17:27
ubuntuaerora: dmesg (whoever suggested synaptic?!)17:28
ubuntuaerora: synaptic is for packages...NOT hardware recognition17:29
MeowKIttenaerora: Try blindly running some commands strangers on-line give you ,its usually a great idea: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg17:29
MeowKIttenSee if you card is listed17:29
ubuntuaerora: even if your card is not listed, ubuntu/kubuntu always has some generic driver for it17:30
aerorayou know i cant run a terminal right?17:31
BluesKajsynaptic , is good for finding driver support , if he's not on the pc he's running dmesg on I don't see the point17:31

martijn81does anyone of you have an idea how to get this website to work under linux? http://photolaptop.com/17:42
MeowKIttenits acssessabel from your GRUB menu and as krakatoa said please burna  new disc,maybe try ubuntu alternative install for better preformance,you can run sudo appt-get install kubuntu-desktop? to install the kubuntu packages and choose from your logon screen which desktop enviroement you wan tot load up. with your memory id personaly use ubuntu but kubuntu will still work,just a bit sluggish.17:42
BluesKajmartijn81, it need MS Silverlight17:43

MeowKIttenum how come kubuntu claims deb is not a command?19:37
ubottudeb is the Debian package format, also used by Ubuntu. To install .deb files, simply double-click (in Ubuntu) or click (in Kubuntu) on them to start the GDebi utility.19:38
MeowKIttenfnord@fnord-desktop:~/git$ deb http://www.beerorkid.com/compiz/ dapper main19:38
MeowKIttenbash: deb: command not found19:38
ubottuTo find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »19:38

kathrinMeowKItten: if you want to add an additional repository, you need to write the line you mentioned into your /etc/apt/sources.list ,then you can update your sources with apt-get udpate and you can afterwards download compiz like a normale package19:40
kathrinMeowKItten: If you want to install a *.deb package you can do so through commandline, using the comand dpkg19:40

navetzdoes anyone know how to reinstall the run command ?21:58
geniinavetz: apt-cache search krunner     shows some possibles22:06
navetz genii: I didn't  know about that thanks. I also didn't know the run command was a plasmoid widigt22:07
geniinavetz: dpkg -S /usr/bin/krunner shows: kdebase-workspace-bin: /usr/bin/krunner          (the originating package of krunner)22:08
geniiSo conceivably you could do something like a sudo apt-get install --reinstall debase-workspace-bin              ....but I wouldn't chance doing it when in KDE22:09
geniibah, the "k" dropped from kdebase when I copy/pasted22:10

pulaskihello, I run kubuntu 9.04 jaunty.  I want to play an audio cd using kscd.  The generat configuration tab only allows me to select if the cd should be ejected after play.  After I have placed a music cd in my drive I must manually bring up kscd but then it doesn't begin to play.How can I configure kscd to recognize my audio cd drive?23:28
Walexwhat does "recognize my audio cd drive?" mean?23:30
pulaskiWalex: Thank you for responding.  In my exerience configuration of a cd player allows one to choose from cd devices.  I have cdrom cdrom0 and cdrom1.  How does kscd know which cddrive contains the music cd?23:32
geniipulaski: I'd try checking off "Autoplay when CD inserted" as shown on this config screenshot of kscd http://docs.kde.org/stable/en/kdemultimedia/kscd/kscd-options-tab.html23:33
Walexpulaski: "Extras>Configue KsCD>CD-ROM device"23:33
pulaskiWalex: thank you, I appreciate your suggestion23:34
pulaskiI have just used sudo apt-get install kscd.  I can bring the player up but in does not look like the one in the help files.  If I enter kscd -v on the cl it returns QT; 4.5.0 , KDE: 4.2.2 (KDE4.2.2) KsCD: 1.5.  The right click configure brings up two tabs.  General, in wich I can only turn on or off auto eject and Appearance: in which I can only change the font.23:42
pulaskiThis is not the KsCD I'm falmiliar with from earlier versions of kubuntu.23:43
joshua__what it take to get X to respawn after ctrl+alt+bksp?23:47
geniijoshua__: kdm restart23:48
joshua__from where?!?23:48
geniijoshua__: ctrl-alt-f1 usually will still take you to console1 where you could issue something like: sudo /etc/init.d/kdm restart23:48
joshua__right now, ctrl-alt-f1 goes to a hung console since that getty didn't resapwan eitehr23:49
geniijoshua__: Not good. Did any other respawn ? (tty2-tty5/6)23:50
joshua__I've got one working on tty2 right now23:51
joshua__if that shell dies, that's it23:51
geniijoshua__: Did it go to busybox, or regular shell?23:52
joshua__normal shell23:52
joshua__I am really really considering doing apt-get install sysvinit right now23:53
geniijoshua__: Should still be able to execute the kdm restart from there then23:53
joshua__so bloody what this kind of bug is madness23:53
geniijoshua__: I haven't seen it before.23:54
pulaskiWalex: Gone is the rectangular shape and familiar controls.  The help files provide the screenshot you posted a few moments ago.  That screenshot is unavailable with the version of KsCD that I have recently acquired.  Perhaps I can downgrade to an earlier version.  Can you provide a package name for the version from which you obtained your screen shot?23:54

geniipulaski: The screenshot is on the kde documentation site, it's not anything I have installed. I tend to use Amarok for my cd-playing23:55
Walexpulaski: that was by 'genii'. I am using KDE 3.5.10 BTW. But it is very likely that whatever version you are using also has a configurati8on dialog.23:55
