XgatesRhythmbox keeps complaining about a text/html decoder anyone know anything?01:58
jabagaweeAlan502, so you installed ubuntu onto your ntfs partition?01:58
Xodiac13eddy: no i havent will it be better to do than envy01:58
jabagaweeand it got formatted as ext3?01:58
mdg_zebastian: what do you get from the command "ifconfig"01:59
Alan502its cause01:59
eddyXodiac13, yes01:59
Alan502when i browsed it with partition manager, on windows01:59
soreaujabagawee: That's not going to do what you think it might. You must run compiz with --indirect-rendering or else you need dri2. What are you trying to do specifically?01:59
Alan502it shows up like if the previous partition had been partitoined again01:59
Ken47150can anybody help me with dvd mounting issue?01:59
Alan502let me upload a screen cap01:59
jabagaweesoreau, maybe i should just forgo compiz01:59
zebastianmdg http://paste.ubuntu.com/274448/01:59
chaukar_#eclipse @ irc.rizon.net01:59
soreaujabagawee: Depends on your setup and what you're trying to accomplish01:59
DreamgliderKeaton, use sudo infront02:00
soreaujabagawee: DRI@ is right around the corner for radeon and already available for intel02:00
jabagaweesoreau, well i have fglrx, which doesn't support dri2. i also want hardware direct rendering for everythign02:00
DreamgliderKeaton,  oops you did02:00
mdg_zebastian: you don't have wireless interface setup02:00
zebastianubca, what do i do now?02:00
soreaujabagawee: dri2*02:00
ubcazebastian->  have you tried reading the results yet?02:00
justin_hey im trying to get a usb wirless card working on my laptop and im having some trouble can anyone shed some light on the situation02:00
zebastianmdg: how do i set it up? usually i can log into wireless networks with wicd02:00
soreaujabagawee: Which model card do you have exactly?02:00
KeatonDreamglider, http://pastebin.com/m4edd504402:00
ubcazebastian-> its there, you just have to learn how to read the results02:00
jabagaweesoreau, HD4850, radeon and radeonhd do not support it with 3d accel yet02:00
zebastianubca, the results to which¿?02:01
ubcazebastian-> lspci02:01
soreaujabagawee: They do, but you need latest kernel, libdrm, xf86-video-ati and mesa02:01
mdg_zebastian: you are using wicd - what does it show for the name of your wireless connection?02:01
DreamgliderKeaton,  sry cant help you, i dont know how.02:01
jabagaweesoreau, oh, since when was that developed?02:01
soreaujabagawee: For ubuntu, the support should be available by at least 10.04 release I suspect02:01
zebastianmdg, cap02:01
soreaujabagawee: Very recently. And it is still under heavy development02:02
jabagaweesoreau, also they make the fan on the video card run at 100%, making it really whiny and quite unacceptable02:02
mdg_zebastian: whats "cap"02:02
zebastianthe ngo where i work at02:02
jabagaweesoreau, i'll probably go back to radeonhd soon enough02:02
eddyjustin_, depends on what device you are using02:02
soreaujabagawee: That is to be worked on02:02
=== john is now known as Guest92736
zebastianand upca, i'm not here to learn, i'm here to fix as best as i can, this is not my house connection there i can connect no problem to wireless02:02
soreaujabagawee: But for right now with fglrx, if you want 3D for other things, you might as well turn compiz off or run dual X servers02:02
jabagaweesoreau, until then, i guess i'll stick with fglrx02:02
jabagaweesoreau, yep, no compiz for me02:02
justin_eddy, im using a netgear wnda3100 usb wireless shows up in lsusb just cant seem to get it to wrk need a point in the right direction02:02
mdg_zebastian: you are too far ahead there - in wicd, you need to tell it what your  wireless interface is called - I use "wlan0"02:03
jabagaweehow would i keep track of radeonhd development?02:03
ubcazebastian-> are you getting paid to do this?02:03
zebastianubca, no i'm not02:03
soreaujabagawee: You should keep track of radeon development. It supports everything radeonhd does and more afaik02:03
ubcazebastian-> and you dont want to take the effort to learn at all?02:03
zebastianmdg, i am not going to configure the connection, the connection is already configured from a windows computer02:03
Xodiac13eddy: okay thanks man i will try it out02:03
jabagaweesoreau, hm, i'm unsure as to what the radeon/radeonhd split is all about. something to do with atombios, but that difference has been somewhat changed now02:04
zebastianubca, yes, but for this specific particular case i just want to fix it, save the irc log and go home and read it later02:04
soreaujabagawee: If you can find the radeon devs blogs or phoronix forums keeps up on all that stuff02:04
mdg_zebastian: this is configuring linux to use the wireless card02:04
mdg_nothing to do with your router02:04
soreaujabagawee: Just wait till 10.04, should be much better and available in stable by then02:04
jabagaweesoreau, i can't wait :D02:04
zebastianmdg, great give me the first command to do that and i'll do it02:05
zebastianand ubca all i saw there was a list of devices02:05
jabagaweesoreau, didn't think of phoronix forums, only read their articles (which are somewhat dated). do you have a link to the radeon devs?02:05
soreaujabagawee: I couldn't either which is why I installed all the latest code here ;)02:05
mdg_zebastian: in WICD, you need to setup your wireless interface - tell it what you want to use - - I suggest using "wlan0" (thats a zero not an oh)02:06
XgatesDoes anyone know anything about RythmBox text/html decoder plugin ?02:06
zebastianmdg, i am on the gui02:06
Jorik1I have a problem with my Hp printer and HPLIP , could somebody help me with that ?02:06
eddyjustin_, well it seems your card has to use the ndiswrapper, see if this thread on ubuntuforums will help http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=69069902:06
mdg_zebastian: I don't have WICD installed right now.02:06
mdg_zebastian:  WICD has a GUI02:06
justin_eddy, thanks  much if i have a problem ill bring it back here02:06
eddyzebastian, run wicd-client02:06
mdg_anyone here using WICD?  Can you guide zebastian ?02:06
zebastianmdg, i knwo, so i see the list of wireless networks and there it is teh one i want to connect to, i  already have the password02:06
zebastiani enter it02:07
zebastianand it connects02:07
eddymdg_, i am02:07
zebastianthen it says obtaining ip02:07
ubcazebastian-> yes it is listed, your clue is network,02:07
Alan502jabagawee:http://imgur.com/Abge7.jpg (sorry for the low res but im strugling with that pc as the damaged partition was the one that contained all the programs i had installed)02:07
zebastianand it says unable to optain ip02:07
eddyjustin_, good luck02:07
mdg_zebastian: lets back up here - in a terminal type sudo iwlist scan and tell us what you see02:07
Xgatesno one uses RythmBox to listen to Radio?02:08
zebastianubca, i went to wicd then preferences then network interfaces02:08
jabagaweeAlan502, is that large bluish highlighted bar an extended partition?02:08
m4ttIm new to ubuntu and I've got some problems with resolution. It seems that Ubuntu isnt recognizing my monitor.02:08
ubcazebastian-> ill let mdg_ take the lead, ill comment when needed02:08
Alan502thats the partition i had previously, the one with all my data02:08
zebastianmdg http://paste.ubuntu.com/274449/02:08
Alan502the one on the left, C02:08
soreaujabagawee: http://airlied.livejournal.com/02:08
Alan502is the partition with windows installation02:09
mdg_ubca: I don't have WICD installed - don't recall all the screens02:09
Alan502the yellow one on the left, was the one i supposedly created to install ubuntu02:09
ubcamdg_-> i dont use gui myself02:09
mdg_zebastian: "sudo iwlist scan" (without quotes)02:09
Alan502but it apparently installed inside the D partition, the small yellow square shows it02:09
mdg_ubca: lol - ohhh...02:09
eddyzebastian, go in preferences > external programs in wicd-client and select dhclient02:10
zebastianmdg, http://paste.ubuntu.com/274450/02:10
jabagaweeAlan502, i find it confusing that a partition somehow got into another. im afraid that i dont understand02:10
zebastianeddy, that's already selected02:10
jabagaweeyou might be able to get help from someone better qualified02:10
m4ttHello, can someone help me?02:10

jabagaweeAlan502, i'm pretty sure you can still save your data02:12
zebastianmdg, heck even from the command line02:12
zebastianhow do i set it up02:12
jabagaweeif it's important, don't lose hope just yet02:12
ubcazebastian-> well perhaps the AP owner changed parameters or filter those who can connect.. ?02:12
bastid_raZor^/msg ubottu gtkpod02:12
Alan502mmm i can access my data, from ubuntu02:12
eddyzebastian, you could always just setup your own static ip for the computer02:12
Alan502but the problem is at windows02:12
mdg_ubca: could you guide him setting up wlan0 interface from command line?02:12
zebastianubca, the ap owner just reconfigured the network there's no firewall or restrictions just wep and a passphrase02:13
zebastianeddy, how?02:13
ubcamdg_-> i can, but if the AP is not allowing, i cant do much02:13

JuanCarloshai, im from Empathy on Karmic, works Smoooth... :)02:13
eddyzebastian, well do you know the IP of your router? should be like or something02:13
sebsebsebtomas__: I just joined what do you want help with?02:13
zebastianhold on02:13
ubcazebastian-> ask the owner again to perhaps try without wep or any encryption enabled, see if you can connect02:13
ubcaeddy-> that will not work without him associating to the AP02:14
trismzebastian: looks like a WEP access point, should just be as (assuming iwconfig lists your interface as wlan0), iwconfig wlan0 essid "cap"; iwconfig wlan0 key restricted hex_key_here; dhclient wlan002:14
zebastianubca, without encryption it won't connect02:14
Guest15876thank you for the iPod info, going to go to the link now02:14
zebastiantyping the  ip in didn'tr work either, he did that before i came here02:14
JuanCarlosI want to post a submmision here : https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Website/KarmicCountdownBanners , i got FTP for the .tar.gz, but how to attach the image sample here...???02:14

hikenbootI have setup a machine for my nephew, he does not have internet access, its a mac g4, running ubuntu 9.0402:15
trismzebastian: yes02:15
ubcazebastian->  then there is something wrong, as minimum if everything is working then at least no encryption should allow you to connect02:15
eddyzebastian, do you know the router's IP?02:15
tomas__Hi, thanks, I'm on kubuntu, I have problems with the rods, simply disappeared when restart02:15

hikenbootI want to mirror all the repositories onto the hard drive, how would i go about doing this?02:15
armyriadAre there any games like Nethack that can be played in the terminal?02:15
trismzebastian: you should just type iwconfig without any args first to check your interface name02:15
mdg_trism: he previously posted is ifconfig - no wlan0 is defined....02:15
zebastianubca, i'm on wired connection02:15
UBestBhikenboot: apt-cache02:15
ubcazebastian-> on same router/AP ?02:15

zebastianubca, yes i have a wired connection to that router right now02:16
trismzebastian: you seem to want eth102:16

ubcazebastian please do not do that, having two connections to same subnet, unless you really know what you are doing02:17

JuanCarlosanyone read me please?, i want to know if empathy works here...02:18

Xodiac13eddy: its stuck and the screen is blinking and stuck at checking battery state02:18
Alan502ah not expert, came for help too02:18
ubcazebastian-> think about it as being* the packet, and which interface should you be going out of your box? which of the two? wireless or ethernet?02:18
Alan502but i see its hard to get some attention02:18
ubcaarggh cant type..02:19
zebastianubca, right now i am on a wired connection, that is what is going out of my box i guess02:19

Alan502mdg_, thanks, my question was... how can i solve my partition problem?02:20
zebastianthe wired one02:20
Alan502this is what happened02:20
ubcazebastian-> you will upon your wireless getting connected. so dont do it02:20
zebastianubca, ok02:20
Alan502this is how i have currently my disk partitioned, mdg_   http://imgur.com/Abge7.jpg02:20
ubcaunless you know what you are doing, ie familiar with route tables and such02:20
zebastianok, so what od i do to enable the wireless once i disconnect from the router02:20
zebastianas i'm in the office which is not open all the time02:20
zebastianand i want to be able to connect from the wireless connection next time02:21
trismubca: I kind of doubt it makes a difference at this point, I'm sure he's just on the wired connection so he can get help configuring...the world isn't going to explode if he configures them both02:21
ubcatrism and thats where his confusion arises, having two nics enabled and he will not know what to do02:21
eddyXodiac13, ah well fglrx doesn't work i guess. edit xorg.conf to use the radeon driver for the time being then and i guess try envyng-core02:21
eddyXodiac13, trial and error :-\02:22
ubcazebastian-> assuming you have he wifi confguration matching the configs of AP to allow access, ifup eth1 should do the trick02:22
dlp211is there a way to set up an internal dns so that if i type something like https://dlp211server/ it points to my ip address?02:22
eddyjustin_, tell your network manager to use ndiswrapper now02:22
JuanCarlos"send a message to the web presence" said, whos Web Presence, im looking for that guy02:22

ubcaJuanCarlos-> thats cool, somehow someone here earlier complained about that and somebody else suggested using the backport to access the drivers02:31
amseidlereddy: Ok, it's installing. Now to test it :). Thanks for the help :)02:31
Alan502but i can from ubuntu, i think ubuntu sniffing in that partition screwed it up02:31
mdg_Alan502: so you need to force a mount of ntfs through ubuntu to copy your files from borked windows install?02:31

UBestBso you want to mirror repos other than rpms on an rpm based system?02:34
digitalvaldostakruykaze, I tried apturl://mozilla-acroread02:34
Alan502ok thanks a lot mdg_, really appreciated it02:34
Alan502what do you mean with, mounting?02:34
mdg_Alan502: that will be under /media/ha102:34
Alan502on the previous partition i created :s02:35
mdg_Alan502: in linux you "mount" and "unmount" file systems, kind of like how you access a USB flash drive02:35
sinanwhat can i use from the terminal to know how my disk is being used right now ? (like the disk usage meter in system monitor)02:35
JuanCarlosmozilla-acroread ------>Medibuntu02:35
sheeps1hi, I've been using karmic for a while on my netbook and after updating it last night it doen't start X,  it also doesn't appear to recognise that it has a wireless card (and I don't have a second network cable).02:35
Alan502ah... going to try it then02:35
ubcasinan-> df -h  and du -h02:35
Alan502Thanks a lot mdg_, will try it now02:35
eddysinan, df -h02:35
digitalvaldostakruykaze I would prefer to have the link work with Ubuntu's repositories instead of having the user install medibuntu02:35
Alan502and see if it works02:35
eddyah beat me to it lol02:35
Alan502really appreciate it02:35

trismdigitalvaldosta: I think the correct format is apt:mozilla-acroread02:35
chundaso,  rtl8187b wifi + ubuntu 8.10 == no good?02:36
digitalvaldostatrism, I think I tried it that way but I will try it real quick.02:36
sinaneddy: i am not talking about disk usage / free. I want the rate of data transfer compared to the whole bandwidth.02:36
tomas__Hi again02:36
ubcachunda-> what made you determined that?02:36
DigitalKiwi1 community/iotop 0.3.1-1  Python program with a top like UI used to show of behalf of which process is the I/O going on.02:36
sinanDigitalKiwi: thanks02:36
sheeps1ubottu: the ubuntu+1 channel says to come here for support02:36
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:36
SlacktardPardon me, but my logout sound refuses to play.02:36
kruykazedigitalvaldosta, hmm02:37
kruykazecan you explain more?02:37
sheeps1 02:37
trismdigitalvaldosta: yeah you'd need to try it, I just googled, and on the apturl launchpad page it says apt:pkgname02:37
tomas__i cant see the bar, im un kubuntu, someone can help me_02:37
SlacktardI can play it from the sound meny perfectly well, and the login sound play as it should. But the logout sound refuses to work.02:38
eddysinan, uhh i think 'top' shows that info02:38
chundaubca:i have a rtl8187b wireless driver, and i've put the "iwconfig wlan0 rate 5.5M fixed" in the rc.local ro fix the short range problem and now this is ok, BUT the downloads are a problem. the connection get very unstable and i'm unable to finish most of the downloads02:38
digitalvaldostatrism / kruykaze , that still does that same error ( package is virtual02:38
trismdigitalvaldosta: lemme go test it, one sec02:38
eddysinan, 'top' is the equivalent of gnome's system monitor for the terminal02:38
zxcvas_tomas__: try ctrl+alt+f1 (kills x-sessions and goes into commandline) - log in, type startx02:38
eddysinan, great if you're ssh'ing your machine :-)02:39
ubcachunda-> what if you leave the rate dynamic and let the driver decide the bitrate .. what happens?02:39
digitalvaldostatrism / kruykaze , the link 'works' it just says package is virtual. thats my only problem02:39
DigitalKiwihtop is like 20 times better than top, eddy02:39
mdg_Alan502: if you end up having to reinstall windows - reinstall windows first and then install ubuntu , just leave enough room for your ubuntu install when you setup windows02:39
eddyDigitalKiwi, really i guess i'll check it out02:40
DigitalKiwihttp://omploader.org/vMjgyag isn't that beautiful?02:40

DigitalKiwisounded like you were making fun of it for having colors02:45
eddymy bad ...02:45
[[thufir]]is it possible to change the behaviour of apt-get so that, rather than downloading umpteen packages and then installing them, each package is downloaded and installed before the next one is processed?02:46
eddy[[thufir]], i don't think so02:46
quartkneeHas anyone else had problems updating due to meidbuntu files?02:46
adantewow so02:47
trismdigitalvaldosta: according to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apturl/+bug/230760 apturl can't install virtual packages, so you'd need to figure out what package it points to02:47
adantewhen i delete large amounts of files in linux, my desktop is basically nonresponsive?02:47
adanteis this just normal for ubuntu?02:47
[[thufir]]is it possible to change the behaviour of apt-get so that, rather than downloading umpteen packages and then installing them, each package is downloaded and installed before the next02:47
digitalvaldostatrism, thanks02:47
bastid_raZor[[thufir]]: some packages need the next to be updated before it can be installed02:47
[[thufir]]eddy: ok02:47
UBestBadante, could be a filesystem issue02:48
eddyadante, not normal02:48
* eddy agrees with UBestB 02:48
DigitalKiwislow computer?02:48
[[thufir]]bastid_raZor: righ, so in that case, install the dependany first.02:48
adantelol, man02:48

eddyvery slow computer02:48

eddydoes it run on vacuum tubes?02:49
chundaand i'm still have an unstable wifi connection02:49

causasuiI'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and I just installed Konqueror. Is there any way to maek it the default file manager?02:50
sinaneddy: iotop did it :)02:50
bastid_raZor[[thufir]]: it would still take just as long either way, yet i don't think it is possible. but if dependency is updated and you don't update the other package then you have broken packages02:51
tomas__hi again02:51
eddysinam, cool *top is awesome02:52
aj_444Which is the best: ubuntu, kubuntu, xubuntu, or lubuntu?02:52
chundaubca: so i just don't know what i have to do to have a stable wifi02:52
tomas__y try typin startx and say me, server fatal error, is already in use or something like that02:53
ubcachunda -> there are no guaranteed speed with wifi,  try using wired02:53
eddyaj_444, depends on your taste02:53
Cyrano_Deaj_444: That is like asking which is best: red, green, blue or purple.   Depends on your canvas and what you like.02:53
DigitalKiwisinan: so iotop does what you need?02:53
eddyi prefer ubuntu and customize my gnome setup02:53
aj_444eddy, Cyrano_De: I'm looking for something I really can make my own, but that is easy to use. I mean, I know that ubuntu by nature is by far the easiest linux distro to use out there, but are there ones that are simpler than others?02:54
Cyrano_DeI've taken a likeing to xubuntu lately myself.  Ever since KDE4 anyway.02:54
sinanDigitalKiwi: yep ! :)02:55
eddyaj_444, well LinuxMint is a flavor that is based off of Ubuntu that may be 'easier'02:55
sinanDigitalKiwi: I wonder if there is a similar tool for network usage .. is there any?02:55
eddy*flavor - i mean distro02:55
aj_444eddy: I need something that is running in karmic because well, jaunty hates my netbook.02:55
DigitalKiwisinan: yeah =D02:55
sinanDigitalKiwi: what is it called ? :P02:56
navetzdoes anyone know how i can install alsamixer02:56
DigitalKiwi1 community/iftop 0.17-8  iftop does for network usage what top(1) does for CPU usage02:56
eddyaj_444, i never tested karmic. i'm still on stable releases, such as jaunty02:56
aj_444eddy: does linux mint have an alpha out, or do you not know?02:57
eddyaj_444, idk02:57
penixi'm watching this movie and a guy was taking a shit and this chick walks in and starts licking his fingers right after he wipes his ass ... and now she's fucking him on the toilet w/ his nasty shit still in the the toilet02:57
penixnow the chick's taking a shit right after they finished fucking ... this is awesome ... i love foreign films02:57
aj_444eddy: I'll google around.02:57
td123aj_444: mint is stable02:57
aj_444td123: so no unstables based off karmic are out?02:57
eddyaj_444, mint usually releases their newest version a couple months after ubuntu devs release their latest02:57
td123aj_444: oh, dunno02:57
aj_444and, how do you report people? penix.. is wow. ew.02:58
kruykazenavetz, the gnome one?02:58
eddyfor example, i doubt they will be mint in karmic until december or january02:58
DigitalKiwiaj_444: are you looking for bleeding edge or something?02:58
mdg_aj_444: http://www.linuxmint.com/oldreleases.php - I love linux Mint!02:58
causasuiI'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and I just installed Konqueror. Is there any way to maek it the default file manager?02:58
navetzkruykaze: the terminal one02:58
eddymdg_, i do too but for some reason when i booted mint livecd i get a system hault, so i guess mint does not like my acer laptop :-(02:58
aj_444DigitalKiwi: Preferably. Its the only thing that'll work on my asus 1005ha.02:58
DigitalKiwihttp://oswatershed.org/ aj_44402:59
eddycausasui, just use Kubuntu02:59
mdg_eddy: have you tried eeeubuntu?02:59
Cyrano_Deaj_444: For low resource machines I would go with xubuntu or lubuntu02:59
eddymdg_, i don't have an eeepc03:00
eddyi wish i did tho03:00
causasuieddy: stupid answer03:00
chundaubca: without the command, is worse and with a short range03:00
Cyrano_Deaj_444: There is also the netbook remix.03:00
kruykazenavetz, not familiar with it do you know the name?03:00
chase1hello, something has happened and my ubuntu has become corrupted and i cannot get rid of it from my system.  i have uninstalled from windows and tried to edit boot.ini but it still shows up in my dual boot screen and all attempts to reinstall have failed. does anyone have any idea what i should do?03:00
aj_444Cyrano_De: I like the desktop enviroment. The launcher irritates me.03:00
kruykazenavetz, actually i think that one is buit in03:00
navetzkruykaze: well when you type alsamixer in a terminal it usually shows up03:00
aj_444DigitalKiwi: Are those listed as future releases up for download?03:01
mdg_eddy: what processor you have?03:01
Cyrano_Deaj_444: You can set the interface back to a standard gnome desktop in the NBR03:01
mdg_eddy: I've been told that acer aspire and eeepc have same components03:01
kruykazenavetz, and what dod you wanna do03:02
eddymdg_, intel dual core03:02
Cyrano_Demdg_: almost all netbooks have the same components03:02
DigitalKiwiaj_444: all of those are available right now afaik03:02
navetzkruykaze: well i am actually trying to fix my soundcard03:02
mdg_eddy: give Mint 7 a try...03:02
aj_444DigitalKiwi: Thanks. I'll test some of them out.03:02
eddycausasui, well i believe then you can change your default by editing some .desktop files in /usr/share/applications03:02
DigitalKiwiif you want opinins on any of them ask me03:03
kruykazenavetz, and you're looking for a graphical mixer?03:03
mdg_Cyrano_De: they almost have the same components - but acer aspire and eeepc are the closest match03:03
aj_444DigitalKiwi: For ease of use, which would you recommend?03:03
Cyrano_DeI was just looking at Toshiba 205 and a gateway AMD based this evening.03:03
navetzkruykaze: no I am just trying to fix my sound, and i'm missing alsamixer03:03
aj_444eddy: you're having netbook problems?03:03
eddymdg_, i have and the livecd gave me a system hault message when loading vmlinuz...03:03
chundaubca: speed is not the problem03:04
chundaubca: the connection gets stuck.03:04
DigitalKiwifedora rawhide is probably what i'd use if i didn't want to configure everything, arch is what i use most of the time03:04
kruykazeyou can't do sudo apt get install alsamixer?03:04
DigitalKiwithis is ot though, pm me if you want03:04
[[thufir]]synaptic is able to create a bunch of wget's, like:  wget -c http://ca.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/pam/libpam-modules_1.0.1-9ubuntu1.1_i386.deb03:05

jophishwould anybody be able to take a look at this:03:09
justin_lol im back guys i got ndiswrapper to install the driver and see the device i just cant use it for some reason any help here?03:09
aj_444glavanwa1: If I'm not mistaken, I believe you can.03:10
mdg_chase1: In windows, just uninstall wubi from the control panel add/remove applications03:10
chase1glavanwa1 then how do i uninstall it? i can't even get to ubuntu. when i select it from dual boot i just get errors and i have to turn the computer off. saying that files cannot be found. im assuming from the wubi uninstall03:10
chase1mdg_ i'll try that03:10
eddymdg_, lol that won't remove ubuntu though03:10
glavanwa1Well you can't remove grub or lilo with windows03:10
mdg_chase1: :) good luck03:10
nabudisCould someone please tell me how to configure NICs in ubuntu?03:10
chase1glavanwa1 then how do i remove them?03:11
eddywait, does wubi magically create a virtual partition or something?03:11
mdg_eddy: yes03:11
chase1mdg_: it isn't even showing up under uninstall programs03:11
yorielgnabudis: edit /etc/networks03:11
eddymdg_, oh i guess uninstalling it entirely may work03:11
mdg_chase1: are you booted in windows or ubuntu?03:12
glavanwa1Use a partition utility like bootITNG or partition magic03:12
chase1mdg_: im in windows. i can't get into ubuntu. when i try to i get "missing file errors"03:12
aj_444glavanwa1: That, you cannot. You need the windows recovery disk.03:12
chase1glavanwa1: i tried, there isn't a partition03:12
r3l1chow do I add a log in message on ubuntu server?03:12
glavanwa1Then how is it still there?03:12
chase1glavanwa1: i also just got finished reinstalling windows and wiping everything. and its still there03:12
mdg_chase1: do you still have wubi in your programs menu?  Is there an uninstall link?03:13
chase1glavanwa1: i have no clue, lol thats what im trying to figure out03:13
chase1mdg_: no, i do not03:13
bastid_raZorr3l1c: /etc/motd03:13
lstarnesr3l1c: it might be /etc/motd03:13
glavanwa1How do you know it's still there?03:13
mdg_chase1: how did you start ubuntu before?03:13
chase1glavanwa1: it still shows up on my dual boot screen, even though i cannot get into ubuntu because it gives me errors03:13
eddychase1, i read on a forums site you just go to c:\ and remove the wubi* file/folders then edit your boot.ini and remove the ubuntu boot options03:13
dsdeizin rtorrent, what does it mean when it says "Trakcer: [Timeout was reached]"?03:13
bastid_raZorr3l1c: but actually there is a process to get it to not be over written.. actually add your message to /etc/motd.tail03:13
r3l1cbastld_raZor: lastarnes: thanks03:13
aj_444perhaps you need to resize the windows partition. If you delete ubuntu, there'll still be an open hdd space.03:13
glavanwa1Dual boot screen in grub or lilo?03:13

lstarneskruykaze: I'm not exactly sure03:30
xmntmezquitale, try the torrents03:30
lstarneskruykaze: if it's an entry in /etc/apt/sources.list pointing to, it can be removed or replaced with an actual mirror03:30
xmntmezquitale, that is the fastest way03:30

Deterministmezquitale: which ones have you tried and which one is your ISP?03:43
Guest3565frank1 it is the equivilant of itunes for linux users03:43

Deterministmezquitale: it could be something else and not your ISP. are you behind a firewall? do you have a router?03:44
rand0ms0me0newould that be a problem with X or the mouse or what? btw the mouse is a ms sidewinder...03:44
frank1_sorry im fairly new to this linux thing03:44

mezquitaleI have a router, the clients used to work though, so I dont think it's the router03:44
Guest3565frank1 its at http://www.atunes.org03:44
rand0ms0me0neJordan_U: 4 on two gpu03:45
eddyBrando753, you first must make sure your webcam works under linux, meaning: is there a driver installed for it? and then flash should easily just detect it03:45
rand0ms0me0nenever had this problem with just one03:45
frank1_guest deb package?03:45
Guest3565Anyone know where i can get an already built copy of opengl or equiv. to directx for ubuntu 8.10??03:45
kruykazehow's that atunes? how does it compare with rhythmbox?03:45
[[thufir]]mdg_:  yes, but how do you get aptitude to download and install one package at a time, versus a large number of packages?03:45
webbb82what i dont get is i have used cairo-dock and avant and none of those were laggy but gnome do's docky is very slow and lags03:46
Guest3565kruykaze well once you get it working right its actually pretty sweet!  way better than ryhtymbox I think03:46
eddy[[thufir]], you could use wicd and set it to run 'sudo apt-get upgrade' on post-connection and add apt-get to the /etc/sudoers to avoid it asking the password all the time03:46
danbhfiveGuest3565: I think you can just install the opengl bindings for whatever language you want to code in, and apt will handle the rest03:46
kruykazeGuest3565, in wat way?03:46
mdg_[[thufir]]: not sure - haven't used it enough...googling now....03:46
Guest3565webbb82 Avant is the best by far dock out there!03:46
Deterministmezquitale: could still be it, tho. the best way to check would be not using the router and testing with your modem directly connected to one of the machines. you could also set up port forwarding on your NAT, or DMZ. i doubt your ISP can block bittorrent ports, since bittorrent doesn't use any single well known port (and if your client does, that can be changed)03:47
eddy[[thufir]], actually scratch that idea i thought that only works for a LAN disconnect haha03:47
webbb82Guest31506, what makes awn the best?03:47
mezquitaleDeterminist, what port do you use??03:47
Deterministmezquitale: your ISP can use traffic shaping, but that's different.03:47
Deterministmezquitale: 5726503:47
Guest3565webbb82 because it has the most features and is the most compatible!  That is my opinion though!03:48
Guest3565eddy, you have any ideas on my opengl issue?03:48
[[thufir]]the best I can come up with is to gernate a list of packages, and then:  apt-get -y $(pkgs.txt)   but it's kinda cranky03:48
leaf-sheepwebbb82: I like Gnome-Do -- It is GRRRRRRREAT. With that, you longer do not need docks, you only need a panel. :)03:48
webbb82how can i find out what grafix card i have03:48
eddyGuest31506, do you have 3d acceleration enabled? do you have libgl1-mesa-dev installed on your system? if not, do that03:48
eddyGuest3565, do you have 3d acceleration enabled? do you have libgl1-mesa-dev installed on your system? if not, do that03:48
mdg_[[thufir]]: you get tell aptitude to hold a package, according to the man page03:49
mezquitaleDeterminist, TCP port 57265 closed on MYIP03:49
Deterministany idea about my question from earlier, guys?03:49
Guest3565eddy yes 3d acceleration is on, but I have been trying to figure out how to get that mesa, already built of course cause i can't seem to figure out how to build things correctly!03:49
Deterministmezquitale: myip?03:49
eddyGuest3565, you should be able to install through apt-get or synaptic03:50
mdg_[[thufir]]: actually, you should be able to manipulate update manager to just download one package at a time - just unclick all but the first update....03:50
kruykazeGuest3565, i'll give it a try03:50
mezquitaleDeterminist, it's an ip of the form *.*.*.* where * = # from 1-25403:50
eddymezquitale, i believe you can use 0 to 25503:51
[[thufir]]I saw the hold option, but wasn't clear how to script that.  I'd rather avoid the GUI, as this problem comes up repeatedly.03:51
Guest3565kruykaze yeah its a great dock, is exactly the same as the dock for mac OS03:51

Jordan_Urand0ms0me0ne_: It sounds similar to this ( fixed, for most at least ) bug. https://launchpad.net/bugs/29616704:04
mdg_Alan502: by chance are you using wubi?04:05
soreauadnan: Do you have comiz as part of your startup programs in sys>prefs>startup programs? Or fusion-icon for that matter?04:05
Drainedthe entire "grabable" or "clickable" panel ontop of each window is missing! idk what to do once i start 1 window i have to stick to it because i cant alt-tab to switch or "x" out of it04:05
Alan502i am not, i thought about it04:05
Alan502but i could not get wubi on the usb stick04:05
adnani tried to go to Gconf ->  desktop -> gnome -> apps -> wind_manager , but it says that key is no longer in used in  ubu 9.0404:05
adnansoreau: nope04:05
sinani am having bad sectors on my hard disk. Is there a way to remap those?04:06
Drainedoh never mind i fixed it compiz is messed up :(04:06
fxfitzIs it possible to control which tcp/udp ports users have access to starting servers on?04:06
eddyadnan, do you have compiz settings manager installed?04:06
bastid_raZorDrained: in ccsm check window decorations04:06
adnaneddy:  yes04:06
Alan502any ideas man?04:06
soreauadnan: Then it shouldn't be starting at all. You can chmod -X `which compiz` to ensure it never starts again04:06
adnansoreau: interesting04:06
mdg_Alan502: when you try to access the D: drive - you mean from ubuntu right?04:07
adnansoreau: so next time i want to run compiz im gonna have to change permission i suppose04:07
eddyadnan, try unchecking EVERYTHING in the compiz settings manager04:07
Drainedbastid_razor what exacly am i looking for04:07
Drainedin ccsm04:07
adnaneddy: ok04:07
soreauadnan: Yes, and you'd have to chmod04:07
eddycus that overrides anything in Appearance > Visual FX04:07
bastid_raZorDrained: window decorations .. check that box.04:07
soreauadnan: Yes, and you'd have to chmod +x /usr/bin/compiz04:07
Alan502when i try to access the D drive from windows, i cannot open it. From ubuntu, i can, mdg_04:07
Drainedi know what am i looking for in there04:07
adnansoreau: eddy : how can i tamper with the settings of gnome- Settings Daemon04:07
adnanmaybe there is something in there04:07
soreauadnan: Actually it's be better to do that to compiz.real since compiz is a script on ubuntu04:07
mdg_Alan502: I forgot... you are trying to fix windows so you can access your D drive again right?04:08
adnansoreau: hmmm i c04:08
eddyadnan, unchecking all those settings may just do it04:08
eddyhaha chmod -x /usr/bin/compiz may work04:08
soreauadnan: Also, check to see what you have in gconf-editor /desktop/gnome/required components/windowmanager?04:08
Alan502mdg_: exactly :D04:08
mdg_Alan502: in ubuntu your D: shows ntfs?04:09
Drainedbastid_razor: nope not that lol04:09
Alan502mdg_: yes, it shows ntfs04:09
jiohdihow do I integrate 7zip into the arc manager so that extract here appears in the menu?04:09
bastid_raZorDrained: are you missing the title bars or panels in gnome?04:09
DrainedYes Bastid04:09
mdg_Alan502: does the D: drive contain the window boot manager?04:10
bastid_raZorDrained: that was not a yes or no question.04:10
Alan502mdg_: windows boot manager? thats in C04:10
DrainedYes it is you asked if i was missing them.04:10
Alan502in D i only had Data and programs04:10
Drainedit's a flat edge, nothing above the actual "window" of the program is there for isntance im on pidgin only converation and opitons are there04:11
zookoI have a question about Ubuntu Hardy as a server (feel free to direct me to a more appropriate channel).  Can I easily set up a watchdog that reboots the system if it hangs?  A server is hanging with out-of-memory errors.04:11
obiwan__hi please04:11
Jordan_UAlan502: Is Windows the first partition?04:11
mdg_Alan502: not sure how to force windows to boot the partition...04:11
obiwan__any dpkg -l substitute in apt-get/cache?04:11
binskipy2uanyone have an opinion good or bad of Kmail vs thunderbird vs evolution?04:11
Alan502yes Jordan_U04:11
Alan502the only problem04:11
eddyah if you're trying to edit boot options in vista or 7, try msconfig ... a thought04:11
Alan502is that i cant access D04:11
lstarnesobiwan__: maybe apt-file list packagename04:11
eddyjust remembered that handy tool :)04:11
Alan502mdg_: thanks :) formating then?04:11
mdg_Alan502: you might ask in #windows how to force a mount of a nonbooting ntfs partition04:12
Jordan_Uzooko: There may be a simpler way, but you can compile a kernel with options to panic on OOM and restart on panic04:12
Alan502what do you mean?04:12
obiwan__thx i'll try lstarnes, what i want is to list all installed/installable packages , with apt-get04:12
Alan502man i can boot windows04:12
mdg_Alan502: at least so you can back up your stuff and not lose it.04:12
Alan502but i cannot access the D drive!04:12
lstarnesobiwan__: apt-cache does that04:12
zookoJordan_U: is there a prebuilt kernel with such features for Ubuntu?  If not, what are the options I should look for?04:12
Alan502windows works perefectly04:12
obiwan__how lstarnes?04:12
Alan502and yeah i can back it up04:12
obiwan__search won't04:12
Alan502with ubuntu04:12
Alan502via network04:12
obiwan__apt-cache search won't lstarnes04:12
FloodBot2Alan502: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:12
lstarnesobiwan__: maybe apt-cache dump04:12
eddyAlan502, what does it say when you try to access your D drive?04:12
obiwan__brb ;)04:13
Alan502Cant access D:\ directory damaged or ilegible.04:13
DrainedBastid_razor: the "X" minimize maximize "drag" panel is completley missing04:13
Jordan_Uzooko: I doubt there is a pre-built kernel, there is a change that it's configurable without recompiling though04:13
Jordan_Uzooko: s/change/chance04:13
adokDoes anybody knows a FiSH program called dirtirc? its for FiSH encryption for all the irc clients, im having troubles compile this.04:13
Alan502mdg_: although form partition manager and ubuntu i can see all the files04:13
mdg_Alan502: I used the term mount with windows - which is incorrect - I meant access the your storage drive (D:)04:13
Chips_Handonhey guys. im haveing a problem with my pen drive. for some reason it is now read-only and i dont know how to fix it. help would be nice04:13
bastid_raZorDrained: in compiz the windows decoration plugin controls that.04:13
eddyAlan502, have you run a filesystem check on it?04:13
DrainedBastid_razor: i'm aware of that, but even when it's disabled that panel is missing04:14
Alan502eddy: chkdisk? i cannot run it, because of the same error04:14
=== ricesw is now known as n8tuser
mdg_Alan502: defrag?04:14
obiwan__that certainly works lstarnes , but lists all packages + info + dependancies, i just want names04:14
Drainedbastid_razor: this is the command gtk-window-decorator --replace04:14
bastid_raZorDrained: it needs to be enabled in order for them to show04:14
zookoJordan_U: thanks for the tips.  Sounds pretty good.  My next issue is "Why are there no /var/log/syslog or other log files...".04:14
eddyAlan502, wow what a sh*t storm04:14
soreauDrained: You have no decorations. First, enable the window decoration plugin then start a decorator (gtk-window-decorator --replace)04:15
Alan502mdg_: cant defrag neither, actually it wasnt fragmented at all, i run defragmentation every friday04:15
obiwan__lstarnes,  i know i can filter , but isn't there any command to just list names ? lstarnes ? :(04:15
n8tuserAlan502 -> umm you're trying to access ext3 file system from windows? do you have the ext3 driver loaded in windows?04:15
bastid_raZorDrained: compiz-decorator ?04:15
eddyso has anyone gotten splashy to work in jaunty?04:15
lstarnesobiwan__: please be patient while I look for an alternative04:15
DrainedEVEN ON it's missing04:15
Drained\off or on it doesn't show04:15
Jordan_Uzooko: For a while I also had a dirty hack that I used for my olpc xo, I just created a script that looped checking how much free memory there was and at 90 % ( before it had the chance to become unresponsive ) triggered the kernel OOM-killer04:15
Alan502eddy: hahaha sh*t storm?04:15
lstarnesobiwan__: I generally see things the first time you say them04:15
zooko /var/log is owned by root and isn't group writable.  /var/log/syslog is written by a user named "syslog".  How did this ever work?04:15
eddyAlan502, idk made it up lol04:15
mdg_Alan502: not fragmented, but cannot ntfs partition cannot be accessed from within windows???04:15
zookoJordan_U: ;-)  Sweeet.04:15
Alan502n8tuser: no, i am trying to access an ntfs partition04:16
zookoHopefully the kernel config you suggested first will work better for me. :-)04:16
eddyAlan502, but imagine a storm of flying poo every where?04:16
lstarnesobiwan__: you might have to do it through dpkg -l04:16
Chips_Handonpen drive is somehow now read-only. help please04:16
Drainedi'll try in #compiz04:16
zookoHm.  How can I find out what went wrong such that there are no logs.  I can't look in the logs to find out!  :-)04:16
Jordan_Uzooko: It's not something I would do on a production server but I can see if I still have it ( or recreate it since it's pretty simple )04:16
eddyChips_Handon, you could add the pen drive to /fstab with rw option04:16
Alan502mdg_? thanks for your help04:17
Chips_Handondont know what you mean. not geeky enough04:17
Alan502appreciated :d04:17
n8tuserAlan502 -> your statement seems confusing, you installed ubuntu on an ext3 file system and you are attempting to access it from windows?04:17
eddyChips_Handon, dammit lol uhhh where to start04:17
mdg_Alan502: people are confused because you are trying to access windows partition through windows after ubuntu install...04:17
zookoI wonder if it has something to do with the fact that / is a flashdrive with ext3 on it.  :-(04:17
zookoThere *is* a dmesg.04:17
Jordan_Uzooko: This looks promising ( read the note though )04:17
zookoBut not /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog04:17
Chips_Handoni dont need alot04:17
Jordan_Uzooko: http://www.linode.com/wiki/index.php/Rebooting_on_OOM04:17
ScottNYCare the commands in OSX termianl and linux terminal the exact same?04:18
Chips_Handonwhere is this /fsstab at04:18
eddyyo does anyone know how to get a UUID without gparted?04:18
lstarnesScottNYC: they are different04:18
mdg_Alan502: ask in the ##windows channel04:18
lstarnesChips_Handon: /etc/fstab04:18
Alan502but ubuntu its making windows not recognize the drive04:18
Alan502ok thanks04:18
eddyChips_Handon, it is in /etc/fstab04:18
clankis there an application I can use to edit pdf's? i'd like to add a table of contents04:18
bastid_raZoreddy: sudo blkid04:18
Jordan_UScottNYC: Some are exactly the same, some are completely different, and some are in between04:18
Chips_Handonim still learning alot04:18
lstarnesScottNYC: but they aren't too dissimilar04:18
eddycool thx04:18
Chips_Handonbare with me04:18
aleroncan anybody give me the kdenlive channel04:19
n8tuserAlan502 -> you have to be clear, you have installed ubuntu, and ubuntu can only be installed on an ext* type.. so attempting to access that from windows is not easy04:19
obiwan__yeah lstarnes , i've found apt-cache pkgnames but that just lists installed , and in a ugly way :S dpkg -l defintely works best that that option04:19
eddyChips_Handon, plug in your pendrive and run 'sudo blkid' in terminal04:19
lstarnesobiwan__: you could also try filtering the output of apt-cache using apt-cache dump | grep ^Package:04:19
lstarnesobiwan__: however, it is most direct to use dpkg -l04:19
Alan502n8tuser: no, i want to access a previously created ntfs partition with windows04:19
Jordan_UScottNYC: Many commands are actually the same code, like GNU bash, then there are things like "killall" which on linux will kill the process you pass as an argument, and on most other *NIX will kill *everything* ;)04:19
justin_hey im back still no luk with the wireless04:19
eddycopy the UUID value for /dev/sdb1 (or /dev/hdb1)04:20
* zooko superstitiously tries creating an empty /var/log/syslog with the right ownership and permissions.04:20
eddyChips_Handon, ^^04:20
Alan502n8tuser: it worked before ubuntu installation, but for some reason ubuntu installed in this ntf partition04:20
n8tuserAlan502 -> i think you are mistaken, explain how many partitions do you think you have?04:20
Alan502n8tuse: its rare, did you look at my post?04:20
Alan502n8tuser: i have six partitions actually04:20
eddyChips_Handon, now do you know what type of filesystem your pen drive is? if not, running the previous command will tell you too04:20
Chips_HandonIT WORKED04:20
Alan502n8tuse: three in etx3 & 204:20
n8tuserAlan502 -> do not attempt to keep some info, be clear please04:21
Chips_Handonit always worked before04:21
obiwan__yeah lstarnes , thought about that but that isn't nice because you're requesting for info you don't actually need, i'll keep with dpkg -l04:21
obiwan__MANY thanx anyway :):)04:21
Alan502n8tuse: this is an screen capture of partition manager in windows, showing the partitions:http://imgur.com/Abge7.jpg04:21
n8tuserAlan502 -> your posting does not even describe that. so please be clear on what you have04:21
Chips_Handonjust had problems now. might be my computer. old machine04:21
Alan502n8tuser: blue is ntfs, yellow is etx3 and brown is etx204:21
eddyChips_Handon, okay now add a line to ur /etc/fstab: UUID="<that value" vfat rw,users,noauto 0 004:21
Chips_Handonits working now04:22
Chips_Handonim good04:22
n8tuserAlan502 -> that is difficult to read, get a better snapshot04:22
eddyok cool04:22
Jordan_Uzooko: Note though that the OOM killer really should prevent any freezes ( by killing processes until you have enough memory ), so I'm not sure what is happening04:22
Chips_Handonthe blkid command did it04:22
Alan502i will04:22
bastid_raZorAlan502: that is not an ntfs partition.. it says ext3 . no wonder you can not access it in windows04:22
eddyChips_Handon, good to hear04:22
Alan502D its an ntfs04:22
Alan502ubuntu created and etx3 inside it apparently04:22
Alan502its weird04:22
wizzhow to open startup manager?04:23
ubottuTo add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot04:23
=== noone is now known as nobodymezquitale
Chips_Handonfunny how the solution was so simple04:23
ScottNYCi think ubutnu is gonna maistream linux04:23
eddywizz, did you sudo apt-get install startupmanager?04:23
nobodymezquitalemezquitale, youre still there?04:23
n8tuserAlan502 -> you are attempting to read from windows, it will not read ext* partition correctly unless you have the driver loaded in windows04:23
eddywizz, it doesn't come with ubuntu by default04:23
Jordan_Uzooko: i.e. If the OOM killer is not being called it might be because you never get to a complete out of memory condition, and if so panic_on_oom won't be triggered either04:23
n8tuserAlan502 -> the snapshot you have is bogus04:23
zookoJordan_U: Hm04:24
eddywizz, could always just edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file manually :-)04:24
Alan502n8tuser: let me get a better one04:24
nobodymezquitalethat's weird, i lost connection on xchat and when I logged back in it said my nic is already in use04:24
eddynobodymezquitale, it happens04:24
Alan502n8tuse: i cannot print screen because all the programs i had installed were on D and i cannot access them04:24
zookoThe guy who has physical access to the box at co-lo says that the terminal is full of "no more memory, can't kill process $XYZ".04:24
alerondoes anybody know of the kdenlive channel04:24
n8tuserAlan502 -> once more, do not attempt to read linux partition from windows unless you have the correct driver to read em04:24
Chips_Handoni wish i could give you a cookie eddy. i planed on using my psp as a storage device. imagine taking that around!!!!!04:24
mdg_n8tuser: there's a windows driver for that?04:24
eddyChips_Handon, i made cookies today, ironically04:25
n8tuserAlan502 -> you seemed to ignore what i have told you04:25
nobodymezquitaleanyone has an idea why bit torrent clients can't connect?  It looks like an isp somewhere is blocking bit torrent clients04:25
Alan502it is a linux partition n8tuser? where can i get the driver?04:25
zookoDarn I still don't get logging messages in /var/log/system.  :-{04:25

CoJaBo-Aztecnobodymezquitale: Comcast? :P04:25
n8tuserAlan502 ->  -> i was told there is a driver for it, maybe you have to pay04:25
Jordan_Uzooko: Then panic_on_oom would work, as the kernel is at least trying to use the OOM killer. You might want to figure out why it can't kill processes though04:26
nobodymezquitaleCoJaBo-Aztec, no, i use cablevision04:26
Alan502n8tuser: the thing is that, once again it is not a etx3 partition04:26

n8tuserAlan502 -> okay, if you dispute this,  can you boot into linux?04:26

Chips_Handonits stuck on 640x420 or somthing likle that04:26
Alan502n8tuser: yes i can with no problems04:26
eddyChips_Handon, you'll probably have to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:26
Chips_Handonit might be the fact that the computer is a peice of sh**04:26
Chips_Handoni dont know how04:27
Chips_Handonlast time i tried i had to reinstall04:27

dios_miois it wise to let the Nvidia's own config tool to save to xorg.conf?04:29
n8tusermdg_ -> geesh one can not read a linux partition from windows easily, you are not accepting of that?04:29
justin_hey guys im having trouble with my wireless ndiswrapper sees the device and sees its installed but i cant use it04:29
zookoAnd the mystery I'm studying at the moment is "Why are there no logs?".04:29
Alan502mdg_: just D04:29
mdg_n8tuser: I asked him if he can see any partitions from within windows04:29
Alan502mdg_: D is the only drive i am having problems with, and in windows04:29
Jordan_Uzooko: You can get the same effect by writing "f" to /proc/sysrq-trigger but it might kill ssh ( probably not as the killer is somewhat smart and tries to choose less important things to kill )04:30
Alan502mdg_: i can see only ntfs partitions, C and D04:30
n8tusermdg_ -> he is confused and not understanding things, you kept feeding him04:30
zookoJordan_U: this is to trigger the OOM killer?04:30
Jordan_Uzooko: Yes04:30
eddyChips_Handon, just edit your xorg.conf: gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and look for the device "screen" section and edit the resolution to your desire04:30
dios_miohow can I get passed this stupid security that wont let me edit /etc files in gedit?04:30
Alan502n8tuser: what do you want me to understand exactly?04:30
Chips_Handonthere is nothing there04:30
n8tuserAlan502 -> then lets prove that once you get into linux, boot into linux, then type this  sudo fdisk -l   and then paste the results in pastebin, then we can believe you04:30

Chips_Handonits probably this computer04:31
Chips_Handonits crap04:32
zookoAh, and it triggered the OOM.  :-)04:32
eddyChips_Handon, perhaps you need to use a different gfx driver04:32
Jordan_Uzooko: It also wrote it to /proc/sysrq-trigger ( man tee ). You will see a message about what it killed in dmesg04:32
dios_miolstarnes , is it wise to let the Nvidia's own config tool to save to xorg.conf?04:32
zookoI know about tee, I just expected stdout from the write to /proc, which now that I say it sounds pretty dumb...04:33

lstarnesdios_mio: I don't think I've had any issues with it, but I have not used it in a long time04:33
dios_miolstarnes , ok thanks04:33

DrainedDoes anyone know how to get Ctrl-alt-backspace to work again?04:36
soreau! dontzap | Drained04:36
ubottuDrained: To re-enable the Ctrl+Alt+Backspace combination that restarts your X server, you can install the "dontzap" package and use the command « sudo dontzap --disable ». The combination Alt+SysRq+K can also be used to obtain a similar effect.04:36

Chips_Handonwhat to do04:44
Jordan_UChips_Handon: Ok, well you can try not using safe graphics mode by running "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak", but if it fails you will have to go to a terminal with ctrl+alt+f1 and restore the file with "sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak /etc/X11/xorg.conf"04:45

bazhanggilson, did you check in hardware drivers?05:00
n8tuserbdigital -> type  lshw -C network05:00
sebsebsebtjz: Wine,  commercial versions of it such as transgaming that are sold,  or  possibily  a Windows virtual machine depending on game and that05:00
tpedenHow do I get rid of "Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "localhost:10.0"."05:00

pete__how can people still be using windows when something like ubuntu exists05:01
mattgyverbdigital, sorry i didnt realize you were trying to figure out the driver05:01
Alexiasebsebseb,  its hardly as simple as being a commercial version of wine.. Transgaming offers a huge list of compatible games very few of which work out of the box with simple little WINE05:01
JuanCarloscrossover has sources on the site, but not binaries05:01
tjzi will go with wine05:01
bazhanggilson, install from package manager not a run file05:01
tjzubuntu + wine = rocks05:01
tjzi guess05:01
Steilpete__: because windows is good??05:02
sebsebseb!wine |  tjz05:02
ubottutjz: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu05:02
bdigitalmattgyver: thanks for the attention anyways05:02
pete__Steil, it is!? im sorry, could have fooled me05:02
mattgyverbdigital, how about lsmod?05:02
sebsebsebtjz: Depends on the programs you want to run, and you may need to configure some05:02
tpedenpete__: Wine doesn't support most games lol05:02
sebsebsebtjz: also with enough RAM you can virtual machine Windows inside Ubuntu05:02
Alexiatjz, many people think you should never pay for products in the linux world howeve when a product does exactly what it is supposed to do and offers support like transgaming does its absolutely worth it05:02
FloodBot2mastamatt88: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:02
gilsonI do not know how05:02

Steilpete__: well what exactly is wrong with windows?05:02
pete__tpeden, eh i have a 360 for games, and i play SNES games on ubuntu05:02
bazhangmastamatt88, please stop that05:02
socommtpeden: or is it the other way around? xD05:02
leaf-sheeppete__: Because most people does not know something other than Windows exists. -- Also, when they walk into a store, they buy a computer -- What came with it?  Windows! :<05:02
rand0ms0me0nepete_: because windows is convenient and familiar and because right out of the box things just work05:02
ubottuThere are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications05:03
pete__yeah you guys are right, just ubuntu is so much better05:03

n8tuserAlan502 -> you created that partition from windows?05:15
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: First mount your ubuntu partition05:15
lstarnesWonderfunkJones: possibly.  If you're not afraid of using alpha quality software, you could use karmic now05:15

gilsonI like this concert? talking on the drive I installed now the nvidia toolkit and did not ask to restart or anything oque do? and already installed05:16
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: From the installed system it would be: sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:16
Alan502n8tuser: no, because i cannot access it05:16
norelpythe video is not avalaible05:16

CHIPSHANDONi realize that05:17

CHIPSHANDONi just need that comand from earlier05:17
Alan502n8tuser: yes i stored all my data there but long before playing with ubuntu05:17
lstarnesdon-ii: you need to use public key authentication using a passwordless private key05:17
soreauWonderfunkJones: Can you try 'make clean; make' from the source directory? and make sure there aren't any errors?05:17
n8tuserAlan502 -> and now when you are in windows, you cant access D:  ?05:18

Alan502n8tuser: just from ubuntu05:19
CHIPSHANDONim just mad05:19
lstarnesdon-ii: you need to add the contents of ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub on the client to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on the server05:19
CHIPSHANDONi miss my regular computer05:20
n8tuserAlan502 -> from ubuntu you can open files from /dev/sda5 with no problems ?05:20
soreauCHIPSHANDON: It will help a lot if you just calm down and let us help you05:20
Alan502it is only windows were i am struggling with05:20
lstarnesdon-ii: the command for that on the client is cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh user@server "tee -a ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"05:20
Alan502but i think ubuntu installation there messed it up05:20
pete__Alan502, haha me too05:20

CHIPSHANDONi know man. i hope the command restores it. ill do it later05:21

tpedenI'm trying to use X11 Forwarding over ssh05:22
Moon_Doggyvbox anyone05:22
Alan502n8tuser: so what would be the solution then?05:22
tpedenany gui program run over ssh05:22
Alan502Moon_Doggy: try #vbox05:22
CHIPSHANDONi know you guys arent gonna like it, but i might have to revert this machine back to XP05:22
Moon_Doggyno luck05:22
KNYMoon_Doggy, start by stating the problem that you're having :)05:23
n8tuserAlan502 -> windows have chkdsk or some kind of utils to check the disk, run those05:23
buckyCHIPSHANDON, we don't care05:23
DronKotwhat is happend05:23
n8tuserAlan502 -> or go to #windows to find out how05:23
Alan502n8tuser, i think you didnt read my post, i have done all this05:23
Moon_Doggynot my prob05:23
Alan502n8tuser: and nothing working05:23
CHIPSHANDONthanks for the support bucky05:23
n8tuserAlan502 -> you expect me to remember everything? hehe05:23
Alan502n8tuser: ok thanks05:23
Moon_Doggymagicblaze0071>Am I missing something in the fstab entry: cdrive /C vboxsf rw,uid=1000,exec,nomand,users 0 0 --> Does not let user 1000 to mount this drive.05:23
buckyCHIPSHANDON, you get what you pay for05:24
Moon_Doggymagicblaze0071>how do i let my users mount a vboxsf file system in linux?05:24
CHIPSHANDONwho said anythng about paying05:24
soreauCHIPSHANDON: Asking for support while you're frustrated is probably the worst thing you can do. Try the command that was given to you and see if it works first05:24
n8tuserAlan502 -> also since you can access them from ubuntu, you may want to try to save or backup that partition?05:24
eddyrandom thought: if you ever wanna edit /etc/sudoers make sure you can 'su root' or you'll break sudo upon giving sudoers syntax errors, forcing you to boot into livecd and fix it again05:24
CHIPSHANDONtoo much problems with this05:25
CHIPSHANDONto keep asking05:25
pete__CHIPSHANDON, i have felt that way in previous releases05:25
soreauCHIPSHANDON: Then why are you here?05:25
Myrttieddy: there's a better way to add sudoers than editing that file05:25
JuanCarlosCHIPSHANDON: calm down, ...and dont mess with the pidgin bird  ;p05:25
CHIPSHANDONto fix my screen05:25
LordLandoneddy: According to prophecy, that's why you use visudo - it'll check the syntax before commiting it.05:25
Jordan_UMyrtti: Add the users to the "admin" group05:25
pete__CHIPSHANDON, the people here will help you, but if you are not nice they will turn against you.05:25
Alan502n8tuser: yes i will do it i think, the thing is that i cannot even boot ubuntu now :/05:25
tpedensoreau: I take it you have no clue either? lol\05:25
Alan502n8tuser: dont know what happened05:25
JuanCarlosreinstall X, should fix it05:25
CHIPSHANDONim not being mean am i?????05:25
soreautpeden: You never said what command gives you that message05:26
n8tuserAlan502 -> thats a recent install isnt it? you can try to re-install05:26
MyrttiJordan_U: yes, I know, it might be that eddy doesn't05:26
tpedensoreau: any gui app run over ssh05:26
sebsebsebtpeden: yes05:26
JuanCarlostpeden: all GUI apps run over SSH05:26
soreautpeden: Try DISPLAY=:0 appname05:26
eddyvisudo eh, cool05:27
soreautpeden: Or in your case, you might need to set DISPLAY=:1005:27
Alan502n8tuser: it is, i will i guess. But when i boot in live cd i can not get the graphical interface, just the ms-dos like screen05:27
Jordan_UAlan502: Even if you choose safe graphics mode?05:28
CHIPSHANDONmaybe a different distro would work better. any suggestions?05:28
n8tuserAlan502 -> you can install from that too..05:28
CHIPSHANDONi was thinking of trying puppy05:28
Alan502n8tuser: how? whats the command?05:28
soreauCHIPSHANDON: All distributions of linux are able to use X. Avoiding the problem isn't helping. And ubuntu is probably the easiest to use WRT X05:29
n8tuserAlan502 -> what prompt do you get?05:29
JuanCarlosCHIPSHANDON: btw all are Linux, the same OS, diferent apps05:29
CHIPSHANDONwrt x?05:29
Alan502n8tuser: i just get the terminal05:29
CHIPSHANDONspeak english05:29
tpedensoreau: tried both, couldn't find that display05:29
n8tuserAlan502 -> what prompt do you get?  even a terminal only.05:29
tpedensebsebseb: what?05:29
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: With Reguard To05:29
tpedenJuanCarlos: ok...05:29

quartkneeI'm running Jaunty and it won't install updates/update my distribution because of medibuntu files. Should I delete those files?05:31
soreauCHIPSHANDON: You haven't even tried the solution given to you yet because you're admittedly using the live cd05:31

jimbeam12anyone know what the default setting is for the sources.list05:31
Alan502and btw n8tuser, do you know any program that can make a virtual cd burner drive? to create a factory recovery dvd with the utility the laptop came with... (it does not have a drive)05:31
Jordan_Usoreau: The "solution" was to try using a default Xorg.conf, it failed to he had to revert back to his vesa xorg.conf05:31
CHIPSHANDONid try to do it nao, but im talking to my girl.05:32
tpedensebsebseb: I'm trying to run gvim or redcar from my ubuntu server over ssh to edit some files using X11 Forwarding, but I get this error: Xlib:  extension "Generic Event Extension" missing on display "localhost:10.0".05:32
CHIPSHANDONthanks jordan05:32
Jordan_Usoreau: For some reason X isn't working with the intel driver05:32
tpedensoreau: it's a headless box05:32
soreauJordan_U: Why don't you have him pastebin X log?05:32
sebsebsebtpeden: can't really help with that05:32

ubottutpeden: Ubuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server-specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is 8.04.

sebsebsebtpeden: the last bit05:33
tpedensoreau: I had the same problem on a ubuntu desktop at work too tho, that I know is running x cuz the desktop displays properly05:33
sebsebsebtpeden: and yes I can't help with that05:33
Jordan_Usoreau: Because at the time he had never booted with the intel driver ( he used safe graphics mode on the LiveCD ) so there was nothing relavent05:33
=== bluebottle is now known as Guest7257
CHIPSHANDONbecause the driver didnt work05:33
tpedenoh, didn't know that, thanks sebsebseb05:33
soreautpeden: Well? There's your problem.. you can't ssh into a headless box not running X and try to run applications from it. If X was running on the box, running the application while ssh'd in would run it on that box, not the one you're ssh'ing from05:33
sebsebsebtpeden: np good luck05:33
BookmanIs there a program in the current repos that allows for remastering an current installation?05:34
JuanCarlostpeden: ssh -X remote-user@remote-server-ip gvim05:34
CHIPSHANDONthe driver doesnt work right05:34
Jordan_Usoreau: I am not sure if it's easiest to have him fix his install and then pastebin, or walk him through mounting his root partition and pastebinning from the LiveCD05:34
CHIPSHANDONi forgot the name05:34
tpedenJuanCarlos: got that far thanks :-P05:34
soreauCHIPSHANDON: Can you pastebin /var/log/Xorg.1.log or Xorg.0.log.old, which ever one talks about (INTEL)?05:34
n8tuserAlan502 -> am not comprehending,  you have a copy of the or you want to copy which?05:34
CHIPSHANDONi have no idea05:34

sebsebsebkamen1: Which version of Ubuntu? and what guide?05:36
kamen19.01 I think05:36
kamen1the latest one05:36
sebsebsebkamen1: ah you mean only e17 in the repo and no e16?05:36
kamen1well I have e16 and I want e1705:37
echosystmis there any way to allow ubuntu to run a program as root without typing in a password?05:37
BloodstarAlright, got things mostly working... except I need athfmwdl.inf to use my wireless adapter (TEW444-UB) apparently, yet I can't even seem to find it on my Windows partition05:37
sebsebseb!info enlightment05:37
ubottuPackage enlightment does not exist in jaunty05:37
echosystmi want to be able to turn off/on my wireless without putting in a password05:37
sebsebseb!info e1705:37
ubottuPackage e17 does not exist in jaunty05:37
bruenigechosystm: add a NOPASSWD exception in /etc/sudoers05:37
Jordan_Uechosystm: Yes, but you need to be very carefull about security and not breaking your system05:37
kamen1that's too bad05:37
sebsebsebkamen1: it is in the repo one of them05:38
echosystmso you can do this for one program only?05:38
echosystmobviously i dont want to do it for everything05:38
sebsebsebkamen1: and maybe there's a ppa for an even later version05:38
Likehi gn05:38
kamen1what's a ppa05:38
sebsebseb!ppa > kamen105:38
Jordan_Ubruenig: Please don't suggest that without warning05:38
ubottukamen1, please see my private message05:38
n8tuserechosystm -> what you mean by that, you can turn off the interface if thats what you mean05:38
tpeden!info enlightenment05:38
ubottuPackage enlightenment does not exist in jaunty05:38
echosystmi dont maen through network manager05:38
echosystmi mean through iwconfig05:39
sebsebsebkamen1: a kind of mini repo in a way, but not that supported,  and then you can get later versions of programs05:39
n8tuserechosystm -> you can turn it of via ifdown05:39
sebsebsebkamen1: normalley they are on launchpad as well05:39
echosystmnono, i mean ACTUALLY turn it off05:39
sebsebsebkamen1: and then you add a ppa for the program you want, if there is one05:39
n8tuserechosystm -> whats the difference?05:40
echosystmsaves battery if you turn it off properly05:40
n8tuserechosystm -> then you can unload the driver05:40
sebsebsebkamen1: and you can  probably compile e16 from source05:40
echosystmbut not all wifi cars allow it05:40
CHIPSHANDONis this command gonna put it back in safe graphics mode?05:40
n8tuser!who | echosystm05:40
ubottuechosystm: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)05:40
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: Yes05:40
echosystmn8tuser: iwconfig ethX power off < this actually turns the chipset off entirely05:41
n8tuserechosystm -> okay, you already knew the command, so why not do it?05:41
CHIPSHANDONto be sure it is,     sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf-bak /etc/X11/xorg.conf05:42
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: Make sure you remember to capitalize the "X" ( /etc/X11/xorg.conf )05:42
CHIPSHANDONi know05:42
echosystmit needs to be run as root and i was just wasking how i can do this without putting in a password05:42
CHIPSHANDONlook above05:42
kamen1why isn't there a version of e17 for the latest version of ubuntu?05:42
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: Yes05:42
echosystmi already have the answer (see above)05:42
n8tuserechosystm -> networking is a system resource that require a root access, so you need a root priviledge to turn it on/off05:43
CHIPSHANDONwhen do i press ctr alt dlt for the terminal. i was just pressing untill it popped up05:43
echosystmn8tuser unless you modify sudo... which you can and i am doing right now ;)05:43
CHIPSHANDONlast time that is05:43
kamen1well then, how do I get internet to work on e1605:43
n8tuserechosystm -> yes you can put the user as member of networking group05:43
CHIPSHANDONgood night, and good luck05:44
n8tuserechosystm -> and you can put command specific to a user in sudoers file05:44
Jordan_UCHIPSHANDON: When you hear the login sound, you can also choos "recovery mode" at boot to go strait to a terminal05:44

CodeWarwe need to use a minimal linux installation across our labs for chip bringup. the chip has a very simple driver that does read/write to the register space based on user mode requests. the bulk of the driver logic is in a user mode app(this is not a production driver so security is not a concern).07:00

IgnosticHello, I did a fresh install of ubuntu. I moved my folders from external hard drive, but they're all locked, it will take too long to manuel set the permissions07:56
kannan01lstarnes: tnx07:56
sarthorkslosher:i guess the problem lies with the fact that it says something like "action_taken=block,category=games". i cannot access that download link directly because it is blocked here.  i thought wget would help me get over it. is that not possible?07:56
losherjimbeam12: a virus is unlikely. Please supply details...07:57
pradeepIgnostic:no it won take that long07:57
JuanCarlosIgnostic: chown $USER --verbose --recursive /path/to/folders/you/need/to/change07:57
Ignosticpradeep, 65 gbs will07:57
pradeepIgnostic: yeah:-) it will now07:57
pradeepankit_ : there?07:58
JuanCarlosIgnostic: chmod --verbose --recursive +w /path/to/folders/you/need/to/change07:58
IgnosticThanks JuanCarlos, let me try07:58
ankit__pradeep wht drivers u installed..07:58
pradeepIgnostic : chmod -R 777 /path/07:58
IgnosticJuanCarlos, is it possible to just do the whole home folder?07:58
ankit__used the repository drivers or downloaded frm nvidia07:58
pradeepankit_ yes07:59
_genuser_Hello People.07:59
JuanCarlosIgnostic: take care, but yes07:59
_genuser_having an issue mounting a network mount.07:59
Ignosticok, thanks07:59
pradeepankit_ one which was there in repository,nvidia 180 something07:59
loshersarthorks: it depends who is doing the blocking. If it's at the proxy then I don't see what you can do about it. It *does* look like a game, and it's a huge download. So maybe you shouldn't be doing this at work....07:59
ankit__pradeep: i think u should try to remove the drivers and re compile them07:59
_genuser_says wrong fs type.07:59
JuanCarlosIgnostic: with these command all files are yours and with read/write permissions08:00
ankit__pradeep: problem lies in the drivers.. its a typical problem associated with driver conflict08:00
sarthorkslosher: yeah ;) . anyway i found a direct link to the download which *does* open. so hurray! thanks!08:00
pradeepankit_ I removed them and installed again, but the problem was there08:00
dragonlyrehow do you remove sfwdeck?08:00
dragonlyreer sfwdec*08:01
_genuser_any ideas?08:01
ankit__pradeep: probably u should try some other operating system.. which might solve your problem08:01
_genuser_how to mount a nfs share?08:01
pradeepankit_ i love ubuntu08:01
losher_genuser_: how are you trying to mount it currently?08:01
pradeepankit_ i can manage but don have compiz effects that's all08:02
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: are you here?08:02
pradeepany one knows how to automount my other partitions when ever i login08:02
_genuser_losher: using sudo mount /mnt/raid08:02
IgnosticJuanCarlos, it seemed to have done the trick, so thanks08:02
Ignosticpradeep, i didn't try yours but I'm sure it would of worked08:03
^mNotIntelligentpradeep, add them to /etc/fstab08:03
JuanCarlosIgnostic: bye08:03
pradeepIgnostic: np08:03
lstarnes_genuser_: what protocol are ytou using for the remote share?08:03
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Hmm?08:03
Speed3Hey all.  I want to compile a vanilla kernel from kernel.org on Kubuntu.  Will I loose the ability to install the nvidia-proprietary drivers or experience any other issues?08:03
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: are you still helping me?08:03
pradeep^mNotIntelligent, how?08:03
lstarnesSpeed3: custom kernels aren't official supported08:03
_genuser_lstarnes: remote computer is sharing the same share over nfs and samba.08:03
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Sure. Did you try turning off and on the mouse?08:03
lstarnes_genuser_: whieh are you going to use?08:04
Speed3lstarnes: OK, I understand that.  If I do it, what are the "consequences"?  I've been using Linux for 10+ years and always compile my own vanilla kernels.08:04
losher_genuser_: the command looks ok. What's the output when you run it?08:04
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Same HID interrupt?08:04
^mNotIntelligentpradeep, somethng like this: /dev/sda3 /media/OS ntfs-3g defaults,locale=en_IN 0 0 , replace /media/OS with your mount poitn and /dev/sda3 with your partition number and you're done08:04
lstarnesSpeed3: the packages always assume that you are using the kernel packages that come with ubuntu08:04
_genuser_lstarnes: either is fine. Normally, just the command works fine. It picks either or. I have also specified -t nfs at the end. Doesn't like it.08:05
navetzis there a way to reinstall your kernel?08:05
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: ha! it finally worked08:05
lstarnesSpeed3: differences between your kernel and the version that ubuntu uses may cause breakage08:05
pradeep^mNotIntelligent, ty08:05
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: how do I make this permanent?08:05
navetzlike reinstall it as if your were upgrading from 8.10 to 9.04?08:05
_genuser_losher: maybe wrong versions of nfs and samba?08:05
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: That HID Interrupt is weird. Something that shouldn't happening... unless you tried many things at once.08:05
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: It should already be permanent now.08:06
lstarnes_genuser_: do you have nfs-common installed?08:06
ToastedSaladtried many things at once?08:06
_genuser_lstarnes, didn't install it specifically. default kubuntu install.08:06
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Basically you tried to connect/disconnect/unknown with Bluetooth.08:06
losher_genuser_: can't speak for samba, but unless client and server are from very different eras, nfs incompatibility is unlikely08:07
yuanxinhow can I stop Ubuntu from making a fat beep every time I do anything?08:07
_genuser_my distro upgrade is almost 99%. It might auto reboot the computer.08:07
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: can you wait a few minutes so I can restart my computer and see if it sticks?08:07
yuanxinlike backspace too far in a terminal08:07
_genuser_losher, then perhaps missing nfs-common.08:07
lstarnes_genuser_: if you have nfs-common installed, nfs mounts should work08:07
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Okay. I think it'll stick. (Or it should be). Go and reboot. I'll be here.08:07
lstarnes_genuser_: you may also need portmap08:07
losher_genuser_: sudo mount -t nfs /mnt/raid08:08
dragonlyrecan anyone tell me how to make adobe flash my primary player instead of sfwdec?08:08
^mNotIntelligentpradeep, yw08:08
pshr_Any geeks with interest in h@x ?08:08
_genuser_lstarnes: losher I will reboot, then try those again. :) thanks both.08:08
dragonlyrein firefox08:08
idyleCan somehow give me some help -- I can't seem to upgrade to karmic, do-release-upgrade -d says there is no new release -- does anyone know what this program actually checks?08:08
^mNotIntelligentyuanxin, disable beep completely...i did that08:08
lstarnesidyle: which version of ubuntu are you currently using?08:08
^mNotIntelligentpshr_, whats that08:08
idylelstarnes: jaunty08:08
^mNotIntelligent!ask | ZoeyMarie08:09
ubottuZoeyMarie: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line, so others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)08:09
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading08:09
yuanxin^mNotIntelligent: how?08:09
ZoeyMarieI was actually trying to do a command, and forgot the slash... thanks though. ;)08:09

idylelosher: I've followed this instructions but it doesn't work, and I am confirmed running jaunty08:11
pete__can anyone in here on xubuntu help me out with a question about the panel?08:11
pete__idyle, whats ur problem?08:12
eddysudo echo "blacklist pcspkr" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf08:12
eddyto disable the system beep08:12
losheridyle: dunno. lstarnes: ?08:12
ToastedSaladhi its still working08:12
pete__eddy, thats actually helpful thanks08:12
lstarnesidyle: I'm not sure why that is happening08:12
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: No problem.  Good luck.08:12
ToastedSaladcan you help me write down these steps so I can use them in a future installation?08:13
eddyyea but first modprobe -r pcspkr, or you'll hear it one last time when you shutdown08:13
idylepete__: trying to upgrade to karmic, I reinstalled my desktop after karmic failed on me using my jaunty cd, and once I did the initial few software updates I was gonna upgrade using do-release-upgrade -d, which worked, but I said "no" to the prompt right before it upgraded, and now it says there are no new upgrades08:13
cabarosudo modprobe -r pcspkr   to remove pcspeaker driver without rebooting08:13
Guest3565sorry I had to step out, but does anyone know anything about the game SAVAGE 2 for linux?08:13
blunderok now08:14
yuanxincabaro: ty08:14
eddycabaro, yea but i found that you must blacklist the module too or it will return on the next boot08:14
pete__eddy, except, pete@BOX:~$ sudo echo "blacklist pcspkr" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf08:14
pete__bash: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf: Permission denied08:14
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: 1) sudo aptitude install bluez-compat 2) Ensure that Bluetooth is paired 3) sudo hidd --search 4) It sometimes may be necessary for you to hold down button to make it visible.08:14
eddypete use sudo08:14
pete__eddy, i did..08:14
Dr_WillisGuest3565:  i know the Demo worked for me last i tried it a few months ago.. and they got a large forum i recall08:15
cabaroecho "blacklist pcspkr" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist08:15
eddyadd .conf08:15
ToastedSaladleaf-sheep: where does the turning off the mouse come in""?08:15
^mNotIntelligentyuanxin, use what cabaro said, blacklist the pcspkr...08:15
eddyor you'll get some warning thing08:15
pete__eddy, ?08:15
JoeSomebodyhi, newbie here, prior to my first proper install, on my extra windows machine i am making a partition, should it be ext2 or ext3?08:16
eddypete__, what cabaro said08:16
allan89041is there a repo that i can add for teh bleeding edge kernel?08:16
eddybut add .conf to the end of that command08:16
yuanxin^mNotIntelligent: that's what it says to do on the site silly08:16
leaf-sheepToastedSalad: Step 4. It's not often for people to experience HID interrupt, I suppose. (I think it was because you paired the Bluetooth and bluz-compat wasn't installed; then you tried to pair it again).08:16
^mNotIntelligentJoeSomebody, make it ex308:16
pete__eddy, to upgrade to karmic do i just change all my sources, and then use synaptic08:17
JoeSomebodyok thanks08:17
ZoeyMarieCan someone help me troubleshoot installing this tar.gz?08:17
Guest3565Dr.Willis, well I downloaded the 32bit version, but it won't even start the game, it istalled fine but no game...it pops up a black screen then disappears,  know why by chance?08:17
idylepete__: I tried that, but half the updates it lists are blocked, so I figured it was bugging out08:17
^mNotIntelligentyuanxin, nobody wants to visit a site if he gets a oneline aswer...silly08:17
eddypete__, yea or you could use command line: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade08:17
yuanxin^mNotIntelligent: true, but I had already visited it08:17

Guest3565pete I would agree, although mine doesn't like games at all in the slitest!  lol08:19
eddybut someone over in #vbox said i should try Arch and that i will :-)08:19
eddyi hear pacman is awesome08:19
idyleis there anyone who can help me getting karmic installed from jaunty, none of the normal methods work (apt-get dist-upgrade, do-release-upgrade -d, update-manager -d, etc)08:19
pete__Guest3565, what doesnt like games?08:19
pete__I play SNES on here lol08:19
eddypete__, frozen bubble is the best game for linux08:20

eddylol i love that game so don't hate08:20
pete__eddy, i like my snes games haha08:20
gac1Hi does anyone one know how safe it is to download security updates from Update Manager that are not "authenticated"08:20
idylepete__: I think it's because I started it and then declined just before it started08:20
Guest3565pete My system doesn't play games for me, not sure what the deal is really, Windows its a piece of cake, but ubuntu hates games for me...  think i got a driver issue of some sort...not too sure though08:20
pete__idyle, ask eddy lol08:20
ZoeyMarieCan someone help me troubleshoot installing this tar.gz?08:20
idyleI think he said he doesn't know what's going on :|08:21
pete__Guest3565, most games are built for windows08:21
Myrttigac1: you installed the software in the first place, and trusted the software then08:21
Myrttigac1: what made you change your mind?08:21
Guest3565pete I got the game for linux called SAVAGE 2 and can't get it to work.  and another NEXIUZ also neither will work right...08:21
gac1I get a message about unauthenticated software08:21
ZoeyMarieWhat is an SVC?08:22
lstarnesgac1: it depends on which repository it comes from08:22
idyleZoeyMarie: try googling08:22
pete__idyle, did you change all ur souces in /etc/apt/sources.list and then, sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade08:22
gac1How do you mean ?08:22
pete__ZoeyMarie, if its a .tar.gz its source code08:22
idylepete__: no, I will try that08:22
eddyidyle, you must first update your sources.list to karmic then dist-upgrade08:23
lstarnesgac1: if they're from official ubuntu repositories on official ubuntu mirrors, they are generally safe08:23
eddywhat pete__  said haha08:23
zhjiangare there any machine learning people here?08:23
pete__well im doing dist-upgrade now08:23
eddyi am a machine08:23
pete__wish me luck08:23
idylepete__: hey that looks like it's working08:23
ZoeyMariehrm... let me rephrase this... I'm trying to install a tar.gz file, and it tells me to qmake the src/ dir of the sources... but then it points me to a site that just explains what SVN is, I think...08:23
gac1Oh OK but I got this warning message about security updates being dangerous08:23
Myrttigac1: you installed that software earlier, and it came from an unauthenticated source then08:23
pete__idyle, yea, we are both doing it at the exact same moment haha08:23
pete__idyle, yea, you know why i always seem to come in here and help people? cause ive had all these problems before hahah08:24
Myrttigac1: only thing you're doing now is updating and upgrading that same software08:24
idyleyeah pass on the good advise :D08:24
pete__i tried to use ubuntu when it was the badger08:24
pete__but it never worked on my machine08:24
gac1Oh OK. Thanks a lot.08:24

idyleyeah his dad works for at&08:26
ZoeyMarieOkay. So I svn'd the source code, and it appears to be downloading it... where is it downloading it to, so I know where to point qmake to?08:26
sarthorkshow do i play .rm files in ubuntu? these are Real Player files.08:26
idyleso maybe that's why08:26

alkisgIs keyserver.ubuntu.com down?08:29
pete__eddy, how do I try fluxbox without fucking up my xfce ?08:29
ZoeyMarieOkay. So I'm trying to qmake the src/ dir of the sources... and it's telling me there's an error processing the project file at the location that I provided. What's going on?08:29
nemo_it wont change any xfce stuff08:29
nemo_just install it08:30
pete__nemo_, so, sudo apt-get install fluxbox and select from login?08:30
eddypete__, i suggest looking up and install qingy with fluxbox08:30
pete__ok ill look it up08:30
eddyqingy is best for selecting windows managers08:30
eddyuses directfb for login screen08:30
pete__is fluxbox ugly?08:30

nemo_by default i little08:31
nemo_but you can customize it alot08:31
eddyyea i suggest customizing08:31
rxdanyone can point me to aufs root filesystem08:31

nemo_but ppl on irc can be helpful08:34
eddywith cairo-dock and compiz fx08:34
trgbeckjust like Gnome with extended menu with KDE I like both worlds in one08:34

pete__ SO much better08:35
nemo_and more secure08:35
nemo_more stable08:36
pete__haha the list is long.08:36
TemeWwell it always depends on the software too08:36
eddyfree software is made by real hackers and nerds, enterprise software is made by idiots who barely passed their DOT NET courses in college08:36
nemo_well there audience is different too i suppose08:36
TemeWbut i actually like ubuntu as a home pc08:37

c0mp13371331337This one's had me for a few hours now.  I'm trying to make a script that looks for files with a particular name and removes them, prompting first (rm -i).  Some files have spaces, so I have to catch these instances and use sed to escape any spaces it runs across.  Echoing the variable that I've saved the cleansed filename to shows that spaces are escaped correctly.  However, when it tries to rm the file (saved as a variable), it adds09:35

ubottudeamonunix: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)09:49

aaron11when i click on the applications menu to start up the terminal there only came a small white box.This was very odd to me because lots and lots of people ran sudo apt-get clean and had no problems.

When i ran it from the terminal i got this error: http://pastebin.ca/1572652 i t09:54

IpSe_DiXiTif an application makes my screen resolution bigger in order to work but then it crashes and leaves the screen with that resolution making it impossible for me to use, how do i find and kill what is causing? (ps aux | grep ??) or how do i simply put it back as it was, yesterday i tried many things from tt1 but in the end i had to reboot, i'd like to avoid it. any idea? thanks10:02

Guest53353hi any body knows how to use pidgin  messenger?????10:03
alkisgIpSe_DiXiT: first, run xrandr in a terminal, and find out how to change modes with that. Then assign your favorite resolution to a gnome shortcut, e.g. alt+ctrl+1 ==> 1280x800.10:03

dyjytylssh user@server -p (-p doesnt work, its port)10:03
Guest53353bagy i didnt get you.........10:04
alkisgdyjytyl: google for passwordless ssh. You don't pass the password as a param.10:04
IpSe_DiXiTalkisg: so u think even without closing the application thatz causing the problem i can reassign the resolution i want?10:04
ortsvorsteherdyjytyl: you can generate a ssh key if you like. it could have an empty phrase10:04
alkisgIpSe_DiXiT: yes10:04
ortsvorsteher!ssh-keygen | dyjytyl10:05
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ssh-keygen10:05
spOnow that ubuntu doesn't use inittab , how do i respawn a process?10:05
ortsvorsteherdyjytyl: try in an terminal "man ssh-keygen"10:05
llutzdyjytyl: you cannot pass password because it would be shown plain in processlist, which is a security break10:05
IpSe_DiXiTalkisg: ok cool, also i wasnt able to use my mouse, the keyboard i could use but just for writing in the quarter of screen i was able to see at that resolution10:05
