fccfspursncowboys: please head on over to our good friends @ #winehq , you'll obviously need some .dll's and other stuff that isn't standard in wine, but you can bring stuff in from another winbox01:42

ritztechoh darn worth a shot ....01:42
linxehritztech: I beleive there is xrdp or something, but I dont know how good it is01:42
ritztechhaha ijust hate the ssh tunnelling with X (hate it cause i could never get the darn thing to work) :)01:43

linxehdepends on your use / network :)01:43
elliottmi'm in an opengl class, and we're using QT for the "container". we were given four files (two .h and two .cpp) to start development from, and as far as i knew it would be as simple as loading them into eclipse and compiling01:43
linxehritztech: also, maybe look at NX01:43
ritztechhmmmm i was in my network it self haha i ws just on the page for NX01:44
elliottmi assume you'll want to see the four files01:44
soreauelliottm: When you compile source you should know what you're doing and why. In most cases, you need to get whatever package source from the official developers repo and use the build system to compile it. Using an IDE like Eclipse or trying to compile an individual file from the package is the wrong way01:44
spursncowboysfccf: the thing is I had this working a few days ago. Then I tried to install the Upside-down topsy turney program and now it doesnt work.01:44
elliottmi'm not trying to compile the QT source01:44
linxehelliottm: you'd be better off using the command line and Kate or similar unless your tutor told you to use eclipse01:45
linxehelliottm: I'm a massive Eclipse fan btw, but for beginners a complex IDE is not a good idea01:45
ritztechis it kind of like a mirror driver01:46
elliottmwell i have no problem with using kate, but there's still the problem of not being able to find the header files01:46
ritztech Dependency is not satisfiable01:48
kahenelliottm (and others), usually you need to pass a -I option to gcc to include libraries?01:48
gartralwhere are the error logs for compiz on Ubuntu?01:48

LucidGuyalright got some grub issues.  I installed ubuntu along side windows xp.  I then decided to manually remove the linux partions manually so I can install ubuntu netbook remix in the empty space.  I told the paritioner to use the largest contiguos space not realizing that it was going to remove all of my previous grub pointers .. urrg.  So can anyone point me in the right direction in recovering the XP grub entry?01:49
kahenelliottm, or in other words, gcc/g++ assumes that you know 100% what you're doing when comping stuff manually (i.e. not using a ready made configure script by autotools)01:49
elliottmthe header file that i myself am including it finds just fine, but that file tries to import other header files in the library with parts of the path missing. kahen, if the solution is as simple as that then i won't mind01:49

sebsebsebarand: well  imgburn is popular and  good, and  works02:15
fccfStupidWeasel: yes, but you'll need to boot the installer from the imgdisk and install on another piece of media, i.e. SSD or in your case Flash Memory02:15
sebsebsebarand: ok it's freeware and closedsource,  but it still works good normalley02:15
ShoeSo, I have all my videos in an iPod format, how do I put them on my iPod. anyone?02:15
sebsebsebcacey31: loads of programs can burn the ISO, and there are quite a few differnet programs for getting the md5sum as well02:16
fccfShoe: I think GTKpod can do that02:16
StupidWeaselfccf: Ahh, so using a CD to install it on the USB stick would make sense?02:16
fccfactually yes but.......02:17
ubottuFor information about installing Ubuntu from USB flash drives, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick - For a persistent live USB install, see: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent02:17
fccfStupidWeasel: see the second link02:17
arandsebsebseb: I know, I use it myself, but it seems he already got hold of infrarecorder, and that's the one in the ubuntu wiki guide, so probably most convenient.02:17
StupidWeaselDanke *takes a peek*02:17
Psi-JackAlrighty then.02:18
AvonGenesisAnyone know how to get Totem-Gstreamer to stream videos in firefox?02:18
sebsebsebarand: what's the most convenient program, depends on the user02:18
Psi-JackSo, curiosity has me. I have Coraline, a DVD from Netflix, and it's got 5.1 audio. But, even in Totem, when I set the audio channels to 5.1, it only plays out stereo, and I have checked and set the volumes for the Surround, Front, LFE, etc.02:19
sebsebsebcacey31: any luck?02:19
gothicboy666what up[02:19
fccfAvonGenesis: do you have totem-mozilla installed?02:19
cacey31MD5 Check sums are different02:19
sebsebsebcacey31: you sure you did for the right CD?02:20
AvonGenesisfccf: I believe I don't. The package list never listed that?02:20
gothicboy666what up you all02:20
sebsebsebcacey31: I mean they provide the md5sums for all  of the releease CD's02:20

_CommandeR_Hi, i have a question why does it take so long to stop apache2 server ?02:20
AvonGenesisfccf: Yup I had it installed from the start.02:20
cacey31sebsebseb:i have the md5sum and infarecorder02:21
Psi-JackAnyone? Any thoughts as to how to get actual surround sound support /working/?02:21
sebsebsebcacey31: you compare it to  the md5sum on one of their pages02:21
sebsebsebcacey31: have you done that?02:21
gothicboy666hey can some one tell me how to use wine to play a windows game call cambat arm ??02:21
fccfAvonGenesis: another option is the vlc plugin02:21
cacey31sebsebseb: no02:21
sebsebsebgothicboy666: install wine, install the program, and hopefuly it works02:21
cacey31sebsebseb: where do i go for that?02:21
Psi-Jackgothicboy666, Wine-Doors and/or PlayOnLinux02:21
sebsebsebgothicboy666: if not you  may need to configure, and ask #winehq for help02:21
_CommandeR_Hi, i have a question why does it take so long to stop apache2 server ?02:21
gothicboy666it dot work for me it keep say i can use this in wine02:22
sebsebsebgothicboy666: or give up and try it in a virtual machine of Windows02:22
fccfgothicboy666: ask that question in #winehq please this is for ubuntu spacific support, and not wine02:22

dillard_so how do i get that error to go away02:25
sebsebsebdillard_: it used to be in one of the repos,  the partner one or something hmm02:25
sebsebsebdillard_: maybe still is, but you got to enable it02:25
fccfdillard_: make sure you have the correct key, or ignore it ....02:25

bastid_raZorBigshot_: have you tried installing xserver-xorg-video-radeon driver for your card?02:25
Bigshot_bastid_raZor: xorg-driver-fglrx <--- these??02:26
Alfredo555latest debs in there02:26
Dreamglider-LiveHello again, Now, how do i add jaunty to grub when im in a live session ?02:26
eklofHi all.02:26
eklofI have a few questions regarding ip configuration of interfaces.02:26
cacey31sebsebseb: MD5 check sums are the same02:26
puffgartral: I opened the case last night to put in a video card, but as it turned out, I ended up putting the same video card back into it.02:26
bastid_raZorBigshot_: nope, fglrx is the propietary driver and radeon is the opensource one.02:26
cacey31sebsebseb: now what do i do?02:26
Bigshot_willl it work on 3200?02:27
sebsebsebcacey31: the code is the same as the one on the page for the desktop version ah ok02:27
Bigshot_which one is better?02:27
sebsebsebcacey31: now you need to use a program that can burn  the contents of  an ISO/image to CD02:27
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, but is there no way to make it faster, it takes 5 minutes or so for me02:27
cacey31sebsebseb: i just used a radom link from the site02:27
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, Do you know any good app to remote control ubuntu ?02:27
cacey31sebsebseb: okay i'll so that now02:27
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, from a linux/windows OS02:27
bastid_raZorBigshot_: better != works ... if the fglrx driver doesn't work.. then try the alternative.02:27
sebsebsebcacey31: a random link from the site?02:27
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, ssh02:27
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, putty02:27
cacey31sebsebseb: from the link02:27
cacey31sebsebseb: the one you gave me02:28
Bigshot_which one should i try first bastid_raZor?>02:28
eklofI use to have network aliases for dealing with multiple ip addresses on same interface, but have nos reconfigured using ip addr add insted (seems like that is the new way) However to have this set up after reboots, where to put the config? Is there a new syntax for this in /etc/network/interfaces or should I put it somewhere else?02:28
sebsebsebcacey31: imgburn  will do your ISO for example02:28
bastid_raZorBigshot_: have you tried the fglrx driver already?02:28
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, but with a GUI so you can see the desktop02:28
cacey31sebsebseb: okay i'm using INfarecorder now to burn to a DVD-R02:28
Bigshot_bastid_raZor: how to remove useless driver?02:28
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, Servers don't have "Desktops".02:28
sebsebsebcacey31: DVD R hmm that's a waste of one02:28
sebsebsebcacey31: you got no CD R's ?02:28
fccfeklof: have you looked at man interfaces?02:28
_CommandeR_mine does :)02:29
Dreamglider-Livefccf: that thread was on how to install grub, how do i add jaunty to the menu.lst02:29
nostalgicBadgerHey everyone02:29
sebsebsebcacey31: the ISO is CD sized,  so  it's a bit of a waste to burn to a DVD really02:29
cacey31sebsebseb: DVD rw sorry pressed enter on accident02:29
=== jabagawe` is now known as jabagawee
sebsebsebcacey31: rw hmm   I think it's also usauly better to burn to R's02:29
ekloffccf: oh god, that would perhaps do the trick :)02:29
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, Negative. Servers do NOT have "Desktops". Canonical, nor Ubuntu people support X on servers. If it's a server, support for X is not given.02:29
cacey31sebsebseb:i don't have any Rs atm02:30
bastid_raZorBigshot_: then try which ever you want. if you installed it with apt-get or synaptic then just remove them the same way.02:30
on0biguess what my ubuntu desktop can support....lol02:30
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, This is just a normal laptop that gonna run for a school project02:30
AvonGenesisfccf: Hmm, odd, gstreamer in firefox seems to be working now... thanks for your help though :D02:30
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, Why on earth would you run a server on a laptop?02:30
nostalgicBadgerHey guys, this is going to sound like a silly question, but I haven't played with Linux in a long time... I'm trying to open a .torrent from Firefox in Deluge, but I don't know where to find Deluge02:30
cacey31sebsebseb: just bought these dvds cause i was doing everything wrong and thought maybe i needed bigger disks02:30
arandcacey31: sebsebseb: I have used RWs often, are there really that much of an advantage with Rs, hmm?02:30
sebsebsebarand: ok  well whatever works02:31
nostalgicBadgerWhere would be the default location for a torrent client / anything, I guess02:31
sebsebsebcacey31: sounds like you should be ok02:31
_CommandeR_Psi-Jack, its just for an website :)02:32
cacey31sebsebseb: the disk writing is complete i'm putting the cd back into my vista machine and comparing the md5sum again02:32
sebsebsebcacey31: you don't need to do that02:32
sebsebsebcacey31: just check the ISO before burning :) like you did,  and if the codes match good to go02:32
cacey31sebsebseb: okay02:32
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, Well, sorry, but it's still not supported. Servers don't run X.02:32
cacey31sebsebseb: now put it in my computer and reboot?02:32
Psi-Jack_CommandeR_, Even more so, on a laptop. That's insecure as all heck.02:32
sebsebsebcacey31: you can check in Vista if you want02:32
fccfDreamglider-Live: run this and follow directions02:32
cacey31sebsebseb: this machine has xp02:32
puffgartral: The intarwebs tell me to go into bios and disable chassis intrusion detection, but I don't see anywhere in the bios to do that.02:33
cacey31sebsebseb: the one i'm using to burn the cd has vista02:33
sebsebsebcacey31: which one is it going on?02:33
cacey31sebsebseb: the one with xp02:33
sebsebsebcacey31: ok check in  the Vista one then02:33

GuidMorrowor, rather, how do I share files /and/ printers02:34
cacey31sebsebseb: okay should i boot up the one with vista as a cd drive first through the bios02:34

puffThat's *probably* the old jaunty install on this box.  I'm kinda leaning towards a fresh install, but then again this box doesn't have any network access.  Hm.02:39
sebsebsebDreamglider-Live: or another boot loader such as Lilo,  or maybe you got a Grub already on there02:39
sebsebsebDreamglider-Live: that can be edited to boot Ubuntu as well02:39
GuidMorrowok, where does it install samba at, I can't findit02:39
arandDreamglider-Live: I think you will want to use the "grub-install" command in some constellation.02:40
Dreamglider-Livesebsebseb: i had grub installed beforehand, and jaunty did not detect ibex so i did not install it, i thought i could add to the ibex grub02:40

GuidMorrowdo I use CIFS or do I use smbfs02:56
brezso I have ubuntu vbox, with ssh installed ;p02:56

GuidMorrowhow do I get that02:57
Psi-Jackte_, OSS is deprecated, and will always be that way with Linux. It's not worth it.02:57
Psi-Jackte_, ALSA works /just/ fine.02:57

sebsebseb!swap |  sarutobisensey03:01
ubottusarutobisensey: swap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info03:01
te_GuidMorrow: vim03:01
kahenGuidMorrow, there is no program for doing that. so just gksudo gedit /etc/fstab03:01
dovsarutobisensey: see if you can test the wifi support on a liveCD OR google "[your_machine_model] ubuntu 9.04 install"03:02
Psi-Jackgartral, The big problem with OSS, is it's not very defined as ALSA became. WIth OSS, you just have /dev/dspX, and with a system with many sound devices, like I have, SB512, USB Headset, USB Mic on USB Camera, etc.. it gets annoying, but with ALSA, it shows the actual device name so it can be easily identified, in everything using ALSA.03:02

=== aroot is now known as Guest38984
Psi-Jackwhich pidgin03:53
yellowroosterPsi-Jack: the irc program.03:53
yellowroosterthe chat program03:53
Psi-Jackyellowrooster, It's not an IRC program. Type which pidgin in a terminal.03:53
MK-ubuntuyellowrooster, programs -> internet03:53
x_application > internet ?03:53
Dan48phi, how big does a vista partition need to be on a dual boot machine?  assuming future installation of win 7?  this will be dual boot with ubuntu03:53
yellowroosterPsi-Jack: thanks03:53
x_pidgin does support irc03:54
blue0488the hole reason I ask if I should have 32-bit or 64-bit is there are a couple of programs in ubuntu that I can't get to work  like the virtualbox and the lm-sensor in the terminal03:54
yellowroosterx_: it does, doesn't it.03:54
sebsebsebDan48p: 60GB is probably a good size, and dual booting Windows :(03:54
yellowroosteri'm chatting to all of you know in #ubuntu via pidgin.03:54
MK-ubuntuyellowrooster, do sudo aptitude install pidgin03:54
sebsebsebDan48p: virtual maching on the other hand :D03:54
yellowroosterMK-ubuntu: i don't need to do that, since i already have it installed.03:54
MK-ubuntuand also do < sudo aptitude search pidgin-* >03:55
Psi-Jackblue0488, 32bit software works generally just fine under 64bit, through 32bit libraries.03:55
x_i'm on irssi. the less crappy irc client than xchat03:55
MK-ubuntuto install additional things03:55
yellowroosterMK-ubuntu: "which pidgin" is simpler.03:55
sebsebsebx_: same for Konversation :)03:55
Psi-JackMK-ubuntu, Inaccurate.03:55
sebsebsebx_: to be fair though Xchat is ok03:55
fezwhy does ubuntu set yourhostname in /etc/hosts03:55
Dan48psebastien, this not be in a vitrual box, just separate partitions for installation on the hard disc.  do i need that much for applications or can i install win apps on the main data partition03:55
Psi-JackMK-ubuntu, aptitude searches repositories, NOT where the actual already installed binary is.03:55
blue0488I am just asking if any one has any trouble with the sensors in 64-bit03:55
Dan48psebastien, sorry wrong name to red too03:56
sebsebsebDan48p: what I am getting at here is,  you may not need it on dual boot in the first place :)03:56
lstarnesfez: because it needs to know that that hostname points to you03:56
sebsebsebDan48p: Which Windows programs do you want to run?  How much RAM do you have?03:56
MK-ubuntuPsi-Jack, i kno.. i wanted him to install additional plugins03:57
sebsebsebDan48p: and yes  Windows  and  Windows programs tend to take up quite a bit of space03:57
Psi-JackMK-ubuntu, He didn't ask for that. Why are you doing that?03:57
MK-ubuntuif i wanted to see if if is installed i would have told him to do < dpkg -L pidgin >03:57
sebsebsebDan48p: some may even think 60GB is to little for Windows,  because of apps they  are going to run03:57
MK-ubuntuor < whereis pidgin >03:57
Rolliozjoin #dumaguete03:57
Psi-JackRollioz, No03:58
sebsebsebDan48p: that's  a beautey of most Linux distributions right there,  the OS and  a lot of programs, won't take up that much space at all03:58
Dan48psebsebseb, probably not many windows apps03:58
Rolliozsorry wrong input..03:58
sebsebsebDan48p: which apps?  maybe you can  Wine them :)03:58
sebsebsebDan48p: and have them working really well in Wine, or find alternatives03:58
x_wont take much space cause most 'big' games wont run.. lol just kidding03:58
Dan48psebsebseb, this is on a laptop, i just want to leave windows on primarily to try out win 7 when i get my free upgrade03:58
sebsebsebDan48p: and if it's not  3D  stuff, well  Windows virtual machine should work03:58
sebsebsebDan48p: oh you  bought one in  July or August this year, and so will get a free upgrade, that's what you mean?03:59
Dan48psebsebseb, i guess i should be more specific... this will run very few programs in windows.  yes i just bought it so i want to try win 7 whenever i get the cd in the mail.03:59
sebsebsebDan48p: with enough RAM, you can virtual machine Windows 7,  well  depending on what kind of  DVD they give you03:59
Dan48psebsebseb, however, i have ubuntu on one of my desktops and would rather use that primarily.  this laptop has 4gb of ddr3, but only a 1.3 ghz core 2 solo04:00
sebsebsebDan48p: also it's just Vista  version 2 basicalley, so not that great over all04:00

Dan48psebsebseb, i have a amd64 flash boot disk made up will that work properly on an intel cpu?04:01
sebsebsebDan48p: yep that's more than enough RAM to virtual machine it :)04:01
x_well i heard they develop the windows from scratch again04:01
anaohello@all know anyone the solution for the bug icewm hangs on logout with pcmanfm as desktop-manager?04:01
sebsebsebx_: no it's rather similar to Vista04:01
x_in the ouside maybe04:01
sebsebsebx_: just better eye candy and things like that04:02
x_dang i have bad grammer04:02
sebsebsebx_: enough  fools will upgrade to it from XP,  rather than going to an OS that  is properly decant,   Ubuntu,  Mac OS X, etc,  anyway04:02
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!04:02
Dan48psebsebseb, basically my laptop is sitting at the "shrink partition" screen waiting for me to figure out what i'm doing.  i do have a 14gb partition that says EISA config but dunno what that means04:02
x_windows xp is legendary04:03
Psi-JackOkay, so, mplayer in ubuntu 9.04 is old. Where can I find backports for it, or alternative repos for it?04:03

macosebsebseb: aye, that there is04:04
Psi-JackNafai, Hmmm. ppa doesn't look very sane.04:05
NafaiSure some of them might not04:05
NafaiHave you checked mediabuntu?04:05
Psi-JackNafai, Hmm, actually, no I hadn't. Good idea.04:06
sebsebsebDan48p: you should let Vista resize itself, or dataloss can happan04:06
Dan48pwell my machine says i can only shrink the vista partition down to 142k bytes.  anyone know of a solution for this04:06
NafaiDan48p: Are you trying to get rid of it?04:07
Dan48psebastien, 142000 mb's i mean04:07
NafaiOh :)04:07
NafaiMakes more sense now04:07
sebsebsebNafai: no he wants to dual boot04:07
=== jabagaw`` is now known as jabagawee
sebsebsebNafai: since he will get a free upgrade to  Vista version 2 (Windows 7)04:07
Dan48pyea, trying to shrink.... i was thinking maybe 30gb but 142 is overkill04:08
sebsebsebDan48p: boot up Vista, and use it's tool to resize it's own partition04:08
NafaiYeah, probably a good idea04:08
NafaiIt might need defragged or something04:08
Dan48phow do i do that?  i'm in vista now under 'computer management'04:08
sebsebsebDan48p: yes that's what I meant04:08
sebsebsebDan48p: and if you don't put in  a size,  I think it will go as small as it will go04:08
Dan48pi also just defragged with the vista tool about 10 mins ago04:08
sebsebsebDan48p: also Vista likes to take up a lot of space04:09
lanzellothwhat're .run files for?04:09
Psi-Jacklanzelloth, To run04:09
Dan48psebsebseb, 142gb is about half of the current ntfs partition.  is this a normal minimum shrink size or would i have to use another tool to do this with?04:10
LucidGuyany recommendations on a tool that can write a bootable ISO to usb flash drive?04:10
sebsebsebDan48p: yep it does stuff like that04:10
lanzellothI'm downloading the ati driver from amd.com for my ati x1400 and it comes in a .run04:10
sebsebsebDan48p: you try and make it small, but then you still end up with a massive partition04:10
Psi-Jacklanzelloth, Yeah, Follow the directions at AMD's website.04:10
sebsebsebDan48p: maybe you can shrink it even more with the command line tool or something,  anyway better to ask in ##windows04:10
Psi-Jacklanzelloth, And RUN the program.04:10
Dan48pprobably a good idea, i'm sure i will be back on here later once i get around to the linux part.04:11
GuidMorrowwhere do I find my computer name (the name to put instead of /localhost/?04:11
Psi-JackGuidMorrow, type, hostname04:11
sebsebsebDan48p: ok04:11
lanzellothPsi-Jack, this is probably newer than the one in ubuntu repos?04:11
Psi-Jacklanzelloth, Definately likely. Not always recommended, however.04:12
lanzellothPsi-Jack, because it hasn't been extensively tested by the ubuntu community?04:12

ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo04:27

fezok kool05:08
bmoloneyhello, I just recently upgraded to 9.04 and now I have 100% CPU show in the system monitor widget. But when I go to the system monitor (or use top) nothing is using that much CPU05:08
miguelonnnnthat mbr then points to post mbr disk location, called 1.5 stage (former was 1.0)05:08
fezof course i run openwrt with static dhcp hosts so each machine's hostname always resolves to them05:09
LucidGuyhey arvind_khadri  do you know if hiddenmenu works on grub2 ..  its not commented out anywhere05:09
miguelonnnnthe grub code at 1.5 stage loads stage 2.0 at the partition, and menu.lst05:09
bmoloneybut things are definately running slow05:09
miguelonnnnso all you need is to install grub at the disk05:09
miguelonnnnand set correctly the menu.lst05:09

ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP305:13

paddyhey guys05:17
StrangePaintI have it in it's own partition, I have two drives, my 320GB c drive and my 500GB d drive, ubuntu is in a 40GB paritition of my D drive. the 320gb drive and the 500gb are as NTFS, I don't really want to use them, should I unmount them when I use ubuntu? Also, I get a virus on ubuntu, It won't effect me but if it gets into my D or C drive it will when I boot into vista (i have a dual boot)05:17
coilettehow does cp handle spaces in the filenames?05:17
StrangePaintlast thing was a Question05:17
=== gentux is now known as dimm
paddydoes anyone know how to get a package of the sphinx searcher for my server05:17
lakotajames1If your microphone still does not work If your microphone still does not work in apps, try recording using gnome recorder to test basic recording function. If this fails, it is unlikely that other apps can work without further tweaking. In some cases with Intel HDA sound chipset, ALC861VD, you may need to configure your alsa setup.05:18
shiki-StrangePaint, you CAN unmount them, but thats not neccessary. AND even if you boot them up, they wont download viruses by their own...05:18
The_Bridge:) of course i can google it,but i'm hoping there's someone here with actual experience05:18
shiki-I know I know MS is evil.. but still.. I didnt see a single virus for 4 years already05:18
hanasakiwhat is the default console resolution when boot?  how can I check / change it at runtime?05:18
shiki-lakotajames1, well.. "alsamixer" or "alsamixer -c 0" or "alsamixer -c 1"05:18
StrangePaintshiki: I know, but what if I get a virus when I'm booted up to ubuntu, on the C drive lets say - when I boot into windows it will be there..05:19
coiletteto settup alsa "sudo -i" "alsamixer" configure "alsactl store"05:19
shiki-sooo owen1 .. x86_64 or i386?05:19
shiki-StrangeCharm, thats stupid05:19
paddyCan anyone help me with this install: Trying to install Sphinx-,05:19
shiki-get a virus on ubuntu? huh?05:19
paddyI can get configure to go well05:19
shiki-if I get a bunch of viruses, put them on my C: .. and then reboot.. nothing will happen05:19
shiki-only infects if I execute them05:19
Dr_WillisTheres being secure. then theres being paranoid05:20
shiki-a virus can only operate using stupid people05:20
shiki-Dr_Willis, and theres openBSD05:20
coilettewith the CP command.. how does cp handle spaces in filename?05:20
Major_QuacksLinux doesn't have viruses persay05:20

shiki-edbroyle, do you use the correct user ? -u foo for example?05:23
IdleOneshiki-: google it is not an acceptable answer in #ubuntu. please refrain from telling people to google05:23
shiki-superfiedman, use unetbootin05:23

hanasakiis there any builtin encryption that can be done with vnc or is ssh -X needed?05:26
shiki-no, no encryption in VNC05:26
Dr_Willishanasaki:  ssh tunnling is the normal wya05:26
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX05:26

superfiedmansorry, ubottu05:27
shiki-superfiedman, huuuh?05:27
shiki-hanasaki, well.. I guess.. but try to use other port NOT 2205:27
shiki-that already gives a good 'defense' against attacks05:27
shiki-usually they attack randomly the 22 port05:28
lstarnesshiki-: ssh connections are encrypted05:28
eltewI am having trouble playing back 1080p mkv files.  I am using 9.04 64bit on a core i7 system with 6gb of ddr3 ram and an nvidia geforce 260 896mb video card.  I cant figure out why the playback gets so choppy, any suggestions on what players to use?  I am using VLC 1.0.1 right now.05:28
superfiedmanoh also05:28
shiki-lstarnes, I know. But pure VNC? Its not enc05:28
hanasakishiki-:  ah05:28
shiki-eltew, use mplayer with vdpau05:28
shiki-well..wait a second05:28
lstarnesshiki-: anything tunnelled over ssh is encrypted during tunneling05:28
hanasakishiki-:  what is the best way for a windows box to get to ssh over X + ssh and vnc?05:28
shiki-(oh geez..someone search it for him.. a vdpau mplayer on ppa..)05:28
eltewshiki-: i will give it a shot05:29
superfiedmani was just trying another install and it tells me the test of the file system with type ext2 in partition 2 etc etc found uncorrected errors.05:29
shiki-lstarnes, indeed. if you DO use tunnel.05:29
shiki-I was talking about pure vnc connectionss05:29
superfiedmanhow do i go about correcting those errors.05:29
shiki-superfiedman, e2fsck --help05:29
shiki-from the livecd you can fix them05:29
shiki-(if they are _really_ just minor problems)05:29
shiki-eltew, wait a minute..after my mc finishes, I'll give you the link...05:30
shiki-eltew, do you know what is a PPA?05:30
superfiedmanhow can i indicate what i want it to filecheck from the terminal05:31
eltewshiki~: not really, i was reading about PPA's on the vlc website when i was trying to update from .9.9 to 1.0.105:31
shiki-superfiedman, --help will show it to you05:31
shiki-eltew, well.. wait05:31
hanasakiwhen I boot.. the console starts with one font that is readable and then early on switches to a different font that I cannot read. same resolution.  how can I check and set these fonts?05:31
edbroylethink ppa is for MAC05:31
shiki-edbroyle, LOL?05:32

IdleOneedbroyle: you are thinking ppc05:32
shiki-eltew, ... and my pc is burning the data..30 sec05:32
edbroyleaahhh yes05:32
Dr_Willishanasaki:  its set in one of the config files.. i looked into it once. But its been a while.05:32
hanasakiDr_Willis:  under etc/init.d  ?05:32
Dr_Willishanasaki:  i recall there being a wiki page or 2 on changeing the console fonts. and the wiki page for the 'terminus' font mentions how to change it also.05:32
superfiedmani am very much a linux n00b, i understand command lines but i don't see anything indicating what arguements to give it so i can indicate what partition i want it to check05:32
bmoloneyshiki-: here is a screenshot of htop http://img168.imageshack.us/i/snapshot1z.png/05:32
shiki-hanasaki, nope. you have to set it in the sshd config05:33
Dr_Willishanasaki:  yea somewhere.. Im on 9.10  so it may not be the same now.05:33
Dr_Willishanasaki:  i got a /etc/default/console-setup :) but that may be 9.10 only05:34
hanasakishiki-:  sorry.. what has to be set in sshd config?05:34

eltewshiki-: thank you05:35
shiki-just click on "Read about installing" and "What is this"05:35
bmoloneyseems like X is probably the offending process, but it stays around 9-13% CPU while the total CPU is listed as 100%05:35
shiki-it'll tell you what / how to do it. (you'll have an up-to-date Nvidia driver, a new mplayer and smplayer). In SMplayer, select VDPAU at output.05:35
shiki-thats all05:35
shiki-HD with ~5% cpu05:35
superfiedmani start e2fsck and it just says pass1, and stops.05:36

hanasakiDr_Willis:  you like terminus over fixed?>05:36

hanasakiodd that it changes fonts shortly after boot....05:37
bmoloneyshiki-: both top and htop (with or without sudo) are showing the same thing, am I correct that X should not be taking even 10-15% CPU constantly05:38
shiki-bmoloney, http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-do-i-find-out-linux-cpu-utilization.html05:38
hanasakiDr_Willis:  any idea how to check the current resolution and font for a running sytem and change it from the console too?05:38
shiki-try to find the proccess with these05:38
Dr_Willishanasaki:   you are using virtualbox and the linux console IN virtualbox?05:39
eltewshiki-: i already am running the nivida 185 driver, should i upgrade to 190 or stick with 185 you think?05:39
StrangePaintYou're not hardcore, unless you live hardcore.05:39
edbroyleI am baffled I have added my user name to allowuser in sshd_config turned off usepam still nothing I can logon to ssh server locally but get permision denied remotely05:39
shiki-eltew, well.. just use the ones in the ppa05:39
shiki-if it wont suggest a new driver with apt-get upgrade , then use the 185 one05:39
hanasakiDr_Willis:  yes... ubuntu for the host. ubuntu for the guest.   guest console is in the window under the host X from the vbox gui startup05:39

shiki-and you can manage your music (if you want to) with banshee, and such.. read the wiki05:42
shiki-yellowrooster, dont you remember the filenames?05:42
yellowroostershiki-: something like P00001.jpg or P10000.jpg. generic filenames given by the camera.05:42
shiki-superfiedman, hmm..05:42
shiki-yellowrooster, sudo updatedb , and then: locate -i 'P0001'05:43
bmoloneyshiki-: I have tried top, htop, iotop, and gnome-system-monitor (and since my cpu is single core, mpstat seems pointless) they all tell me that my CPU is using 100% even though adding up the amounts for individual processes is nowhere near 100%05:43
yellowroostershiki-: but i don't remember the names. i just remember that they are JPG files that i moved from camera to computer within the past 3 days.05:43
Dr_Willisyellowrooster:  the 'find' command can sort/locate based on date05:44
shiki-superfiedman, delete the partition (from cfdisk). Create one.. also with cfdisk. And use "mkfs.ext3 -c /dev/sda2"..for example..05:44
bmoloneyshiki-: but X does seem to be using to much CPU (10-15%) when i am doing nothing05:44
shiki-that should do a random write/read test.. and if it fails.. hdd05:44
yellowroosterDr_Willis: ok. what is the exact syntax that i should use?05:44
shiki-mv ~/hdd /dev/null05:44
Dr_Willisyellowrooster:  i would start with 'man find' :) i dont rember it off hand.05:44

rsouthardbmoloney that is high but not terribly high. And you are saying your cpu is pegged at 100%?05:54
LucidGuyshiki-,  ..ohh thought you were refering to OSS as in a distro.  I got all the hardware to work on the nb200 .. and yes you have to use OSS4 on it.05:54

Madpilotubottu, root06:08
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo06:08
Madpilotshiki-, there's no need for a root password in Ubuntu, in 99.99% of cases.06:09

JaxonHi there.  Google has failed me but I hope someone has a suggestion.  I'm looking for something that can let me view the transferred bandwidth and the current incoming/outgoing rates through a http UI.  I've previously used vnstat and a php front end but that doesn't allow me to view the current rates.09:18
firecrotchJaxon: The progam nload can be used to display the current network usage, so in php you could do something like exec('nload');09:21

PrebenRJyxt, yes, so I need a small partistinon for the bootloading13:40
innomenActionParsnip, thanks13:40
PrebenRjyxt with fat13:40
MarderIIIPrebenR: worth a try... there are several distro's it can install directly13:41
ubottuntfs-3g is a Linux driver which allows read/write access to NTFS partitions. Installation instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MountingWindowsPartitions13:41

evilbuntuI have a weird question. I'm unable to display some content in a web-browser, and I'm not sure why. I think it's java-related, but i'd like to know for sure. Is there something I can do to see what content is broken/unviewable on a webpage?13:47
PrebenRActionParsnip, hate programming in windows so nice to have a stick and I can boot linux even on my work laptop when traveling13:47
grawityevilbuntu: What web-browser is that?13:47
DeepwatersActionParsnip, any ideas?13:47
evilbuntuit's firefox 3.0.1313:48
_PiLoT_hey is ubuntu compatible with workstations and home netwroking13:48
ActionParsnipDeepwaters: i cant advise anything else really. Weird13:48
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: yes13:48
mickster04evilbuntu, an youtube works?13:48
evilbuntumick - yes13:49
_PiLoT_im debating on weather to install ubuntu/ windows now or wait for the nest version13:49
rgnrany1 used multiboot usb flash?13:50
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: you can upgrade into Karmic from Jaunty if you wish13:50
Sidewinder1!java | evilbuntu13:50
ubottuevilbuntu: To install a Java runtime/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java6-jre from the !Multiverse repository13:50
_PiLoT_i know im just wondering weather i should or just get a fresh karmic13:50
_PiLoT_also is ubuntu good with hyperthreading and 2 processor boards13:51
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: yes and karmic is dicussed in #ubuntu+113:52
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: it is alpha sop will break. If yuo are new to ubuntu then i recommend Jaunty13:52
CptnAwesomei can get the time (in the panel) to display my local time, but when i reboot, it goes back to UTC. any suggestions on how I can make my local time persistant (im using ubuntu w/ lxde)13:52
_PiLoT_ihave a dell precision 650 with 2 x 2.8 ghz 2 gb ram and a fx 5700le card13:52
_PiLoT_well im quite new13:52
_PiLoT_ive only been using since 8.1013:52
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: thats probably more powerful than all my PCs put together13:52
evilbuntusidewinder1- what does GCJ standfor in GCJ flavor?13:53
innomenActionParsnip, so the alpha would not upgrade to a final version of it's own accord?13:53
ActionParsnipinnomen: yes it will upgrade seamlessly13:53
innomenActionParsnip, how about jaunty, it will do the same when the time comes?13:53
_PiLoT_actionparsnip : well i reckon it rated at about 6 or 7 ghz13:53
_PiLoT_i do need more ram13:53
ActionParsnipinnomen: you will need to use upgrade manager for that13:53
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: get some, its cheap13:54
ompaul_PiLoT_, then that is an easy decision - either continue with 8.10 or do 9.04  or go back to the LTS and get more familiar with the overall o/s and its innards from there - however using bleeding edge software cuts - and when it does you need to be fairly good at first aid or you will feel the pain13:54
Sidewinder1evilbuntu> Don't know, sorry13:54
_PiLoT_but since i got that two monitors and surround sound for nothig i cant complain13:54
innomenActionParsnip, just making sure it's possible heheh, if i enabled all the "bleeding edge" tick boxes in sources, would that carry me to karmic alpha?13:54
chris1950installed UE 2.3 now can't access other partitions to create file (permission denied) also can't change permissions using chmod13:54
ActionParsnipinnomen: oh absolutely13:54
ActionParsnipinnomen: you'd still need to use the upgrade manager to jump release13:55
_PiLoT_i got al that except bleeding edge software13:55
Sidewinder1evilbuntu http://gcc.gnu.org/java/13:55
innomenActionParsnip, i think i'll backup my home directory and try that, this mysterious lock up has me flummoxed13:55
_PiLoT_i am planning on dualbooting13:56
_PiLoT_win7 and ubuntu13:56
ompaul_PiLoT_, you don't want to do bleeding edge software if you get frustrated by things breaking, if however you are comfortable with them breaking and / or can take the breakage then go to #ubuntu+113:56
mickster04_PiLoT_, its easier dual booting if u insrtall windows first13:56
innomenActionParsnip, i assume there's no way to roll back an upgrade other than to reinstall, is this correct?13:56
ompaulinnomen, there is no roll back13:56
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: install xp first but leave unpartitioned space, if you dont use 100% of the space for the windows install you wont have to mess around with resizing13:56
_PiLoT_i know mickster i found that out the hard way13:56
ActionParsnipinnomen: you cant downgrade safetly13:56
innomenompaul, i thought not, just checking :)13:56
ActionParsnipinnomen: you can only climb13:57
legend2440CptnAwesome: not familiar with lxde but in gnome i edited    /etc/default/rcS    so it says  UTC=no13:57
_PiLoT_i once re instaled xp and then lost grub but i fixed it13:57
innomenActionParsnip, heh, or fall13:57
_PiLoT_so i  am fairly new but i also a quicklearner13:57
_PiLoT_which is why im building laptops with ubutu on them at work13:57
_PiLoT_im campaigning for it to be more recogniesed here13:57
_PiLoT_since all i get when i say ubuntu to my neighbours13:58
_PiLoT_is a huge luddite like stare13:58
innomen_PiLoT_, if you have any encrypted drives remove them before tinkering with install, i wiped out 350gbs of precious data once screwing around with ubuntu 6, stupid truecrypt13:58
_PiLoT_lol ha ha13:58
_PiLoT_nah my only worry is i have a home network were ive hared a drive13:59
CptnAwesomethanks legend244013:59
_PiLoT_easy to do in win713:59
ActionParsnip_PiLoT_: easy in linux too, it can even be mounted as a folder ni your filesystem13:59
_PiLoT_im just thinking if im dualbooting and also sharing a drive via netwrok im likely to get conflicts13:59
_PiLoT_im thinking ubuntu on a workstation will be fun???14:00
ompaul_PiLoT_, I thought you had it installed already14:00
_PiLoT_oh no14:00
ActionParsnipompaul: +114:00
_PiLoT_i did one my old dell 2 ghz14:00
innomeni run ubuntu by itself and run xp in a virtual machine, i'm still new enough to the whole thing that its still a novelty to me14:00

Pirate_Hunteranyone care to help me figure out why an old compaq presario 5410 wont boot with two hard disk yet if I replace the second hard disk with the CD-Rom it boots?14:01
ompaul_PiLoT_, that is more discussion than a support item you might like to talk in #ubuntu-offtopic14:01
_PiLoT_so i then "obtained" a  new gfx card from work14:02
chris1950can I get some help please? I can not access or make folders on a EXT4 partition (permission denied) chomod did not work.14:02
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, check the jumper settings14:02
ActionParsnipdennda: if you get full upgrades it works fine according to: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Intel_GMA_X4500HD#Ubuntu_9.0414:02
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, they might both be set to master...:/14:03
_PiLoT_i was just making sure that ubuntu would work ok with hyperthreading14:03
Pirate_Huntermickster04: hmmm I cant find any info on the jumper settings also ive tried changing the second hd from slave to master and nada14:03
Pirate_Huntermickster04: if they were it should make a difference since they are both using different IDE i've replaced the CD-Rom for the second hd14:04
chris1950no I created a swap, /, /home,/data allon same drive can not access /data14:04
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, does it work if u change the two hdd's round an leave the cd rom in14:04
ActionParsnipdennda: http://webupd8.blogspot.com/2009/05/reverting-xorg-video-intel-driver-of.html can help too14:04
ompaul_PiLoT_, I thought that was already established, hypertreading that is, it has been supported since at least Jan 0314:04
wandanaHello, is someone here who knows why I have sound after login via gdm, but not after login with ssh?14:05
wandanaSeems that gdm executes something after the login14:05
wandanaWhere to look?14:05
_PiLoT_thanks ompaul14:05
ompaulwandana, tell me - are you expecting a sound on login with ssh?14:05
wandanaHi ompaul14:06
wandanaWell, I want to record sound14:06
Pirate_Huntermickster04: I would try that if  it wasn't for the case type the thing was built in such an enclosed space, I would have to remove a lot before i can remove the main hd, however, on my IBM the second hd does work so I know it is not the hd having failure14:06
wandanaThe funny thing is, after login via gdm, pulseaudio is linked to alsa14:06
=== Downlink is now known as Uplink
vavarwhat does that mean?   Clocksource tsc unstable (delta = ...14:06
wandanaBut not when I login via ssh, nx or the usual text terminal14:07
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, are u using 2.5 hdd? like the small ones?14:07
wandanaIn latter case pulseaudio links to null14:07
ompaulwandana, do you want sound on each and every logon?14:07
neffetshi to all14:07
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, do they have jumpre settings?14:08
vavari see that just before several harddisk failures but just at that time when the clocksource stuff went wrong. what is going on?14:08
chris1950anyone using UE 2.3?14:08
ompaulwandana, ssh is designed to log in anywhere from on the console to the other end of the planet - so kicking off a sound would not be normal14:08
wandanaompaul: sorry, not directly sound. I want to be able to record. So, I set up a computer for video and sound recording. After login via ssh I want to start arecord to capture sound14:09
kahenwandana, some quick googling gave me this: http://razor.occams.info/blog/2009/02/11/pulseaudio-sound-forwarding-across-a-network/ -- basically... you're on your own on this one. sound forwarding is not default behaviour and probably won't be for years to come (basically until we can expect 90%+ of users to have the bandwidth for it...)14:09
ompaulwandana, that would be a job for an application - so you need a console recording application - none come to mind straight away14:09
Naidelhey everyone, i have a stupid problem with my X server in ubuntu: i tried recompiling the kernel with a script, and now every time i try to start ubuntu, the system hard freezes just before i get to the GDM login screen. it doesn't matter which kernel i choose at boot, it happens the same all the time. i think it's some kind of problem with graphics.14:10
Naideldoes anyone know what i should do about it?14:10
ompaulwandana, or (assuming you are running X on localbox) ssh -X user@faraway audiocity14:10
istvanhey, I set up a cron job which isn't working. i did crontab -e and entered */10 * * * * /var/www/site/myscript.sh  ----- i just put that on a new line, saved, and no good. help?14:11
kahenwandana, you can't run a recording app on a remote machine and have it record sound on a local one. things just don't work that way. the recording app needs access to the hardware to record stuff14:11
istvanrun a wire from your headphone jack into the remote computer, or stream the audio to it, say with vlc14:11
istvanwandana, that is my two cents without hearing your question14:12
wandanaompaul, kahen: Sorry for the confusion! Of course the sound on the remote machine should be captured14:12
Pirate_Huntermickster04: wouldn't know if they are 2.5 only that it connest through IDE and yes they have jumper setting, however, I dont think that is the problem. They are connected through different IDE, it might be something i messed up when partitioning the second hd will try repartitioning it again and see if it works14:12
wandanaHi istvan, loin via ssh and start acrecord ...14:12
mickster04Pirate_Hunter, well good look, let me know if it works14:12
wandanaIs easy14:13
kahenistvan, i presume chmod +x is done? if so it may be a problem with user priveleges?14:13
wandanaBut after login via ssh pulseaudio is linked to null14:13
wandanaBut when login via gdm, pulseaudio is liked to alsa14:13
auxim so hungry14:13

vostewhy are you so hungry.. go eat then.. :)14:14
huayraanyone that can point me to an answer regarding this?14:14
wandanaI think the kuy question is, what gdm executes after login14:14
wandanaWhere would I find this?14:14
kahenistvan, is the user that owns the script the same as the owner of the files that it is trying to manipulate?14:14
