Xodiac13ctmjr: http://pastebin.com/m4c46aa2f00:16
Xodiac13ctmjr: it was empty and on the website i had to add it00:16
usserwoodyjlw, in the graphics department the blame is squarely on ati, as for the rest ubuntu is moving away from proprietary drivers as fast as possible, my guess is your broadcom card was using an opensource driver in 9.04 which isnt quite there yet00:17
Jorik1craigbass1976: You may also try bitdefender for unices00:17
Moon_Doggyi dont need a language selector do i00:17
ubottuBackground to the decision to replace -686, k7 and -smp kernels with -generic can be found here https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2006-August/019983.html (the -386 kernel is still available if needed)00:18
Sega_DudeAnyone kno how to get wireless to work on a ps3 running 8.10?00:18
losherIpSe_DiXiT: well xubuntu's designed for low end hardware... A comparison between ubuntu/bsd/dsl etc. is probably offtopic...00:19
woodyjlwusser ok so from 9.04 on up the task is to work on the open source drivers and away from proprietary drivers.   so I am probably better off staying with 8.10 for awhile till they improve the open source?00:19

Moon_Doggyi'm uninstalling things i don't need so do i need a language selector00:21
comicinker!ask | quickstart00:21
usserwoodyjlw, yes the support is constantly improving, the opensource intel wifi drivers are great on 2.6.30 kernel which i believe is the one karmic koala is using, im sure other drivers has gotten significant overhaul. Still dont hope for your graphics to work if you have even a semi-old ati card.00:21
ubottuquickstart: 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. :-)00:21
quickstartok thanks ubottu00:21

quickstartsweet Sega_Dude00:22
quickstartso maybe you can guide me from here00:22
woodyjlwusser im on an hp laptop with 200m so I doubt it will have the overhaul I will need....how long before they stop suport of 8.10?00:22
Sega_DudeIt sould quickstart00:22
ctmjrXodiac13: edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and add this under driver/  Option    "AccelMethod" "EXA"00:23
Xodiac13ctmjr: okay00:23
usserwoodyjlw, i believe its a year of support. that means in october00:23
usserwoodyjlw, 8.04 will be supported till 201100:23
Sega_Dudecomicinker: I tryed dpkg -1 and it says i need superuser privilge00:24
ctmjrXodiac13: then restart X00:24
Xodiac13ctmjr: can you help me reinstall the driver period so there is no problem please00:24
woodyjlwI may stick with 8.04 then till all the other drivers get fixed then00:24
Xodiac13ctmjr: instead of the hardware drivers00:24
quickstartwell my question is this00:25
quickstartif I install using wubi on another hdd00:25
losherwoodyjlw: that's my plan too. Maybe by 2011 sound on 9.04 will work,....00:25
quickstartand I reboot00:25
comicinkerSega_Dude: first: it was dpkg -i, not dpkg -1; second: it needs superuser? give it with sudo; third: I told you crap. maybe sudo dpkg --configure -a will do the job00:25
quickstartwhat will happen?00:25
quickstartwill grub take over my machine ?00:26
quickstartthe second hdd is a slave and the first is a windblows master00:26
Sega_Dudequickstart: No00:26
quickstartok will it not boot into ubuntu?00:26
ctmjrXodiac13: if you have a gui and your xorg.conf file show's radeonhd as the driver then you are using the open source driver not the hardware driver which is the fglrx driver00:27
woodyjlwusser well thanks for the info :)  that helps me to plan what I need to stick with for now and I will have to try to keep myself up to date with what drivers I need that are being improved before I upgrade00:27
comicinkerquickstart: installing ubuntu by using wubi won't install grub. it will modify your windows bootloader in first place.00:27
usserwoodyjlw, no problem00:27
quickstartit will install ubuntu onto the bootloader?00:27

damion_dark8i mean, is that the command line behind the GUI?00:57
ewpkermit, well check your .xsession and .bash* script to see if pidgin/skype are being setup there, otherwise i think you may find autostartup configs in the gconf-editor (idk where tho)00:57

ubottudamion_dark8: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)01:09

damion_dark8super user = administrator ?01:09

sebsebsebrizwan: Ext4  will speed boot up by a lot, but  it can be a bit dodgy in 9.04 still, for example a lock up issue maybe when deleting big files,  it is the default file system for the next one though :)01:10

n-iCehi, to install ext4 what should I create?01:11
n-iCejust a ext4 called / and swap?01:11
LjLdamion_dark8: it's a matter of privileges, not the directory things are run from.01:11
jamiewan_rizwan: see sebsebseb comment up a few lines01:11
sebsebsebn-iCe: uhmm see what I just said to rizwan regarding Ext401:11

rizwanand that'll fix my problem for sure01:12
n-iCeyou use ext4 sebsebseb?01:12
sebsebsebn-iCe: yes01:12
rizwanone more question. how long the installation procedure normally takes01:12
comicinkerBoffo: you should run fsck on windows on that drive01:12
lluadlakotajames: Check the date and time on the box.01:12
mrwesrizwan, hrm...20-30 minutes01:12
jamiewan_rizwan: 15-20 mins01:13
n-iCesebsebseb what are the partitions i should create01:13

lakotajameslluad: it's correct.01:13
Boffookay, im going to switch back to windows, ill get back on if i have anymore problems. thanks!01:13
sebsebsebn-iCe rizwan: used to run 9.04 with Ext4 on here, then  put  Karmic alpha 4 on.   and the other computer when I re installed and put 9.04 on yep Ext4,  but, because of the kernel that's in 9.04  and stuff like that, it  can be a little dodgy,  so any important data should be backed up,  if going to do it, but should be doing that anyway since hard disks can just fail01:14
comicinkerBoffo: happy to see you soon01:14
n-iCesebsebseb well im going to format, so no files to back up01:14
n-iCeI just need to know the partitions, I think a / mounted as ext4 and the swap partition would be ok, no?01:14
sebsebsebn-iCe: /   a swap maybe,  and  a seperate /home maybe01:15
n-iCeaaa /home01:15
monostoneI'm having difficulties setting up djbdns,dnscache and tinydns. First problem is I moved the ./main log dir to /var/log, changed permissions accordingly but tail -f /var/log/dnscache/current doesn't show any activity anymore, same goes for the tinydns log dir. I made the change to the /log/run file feeding multilog the new location, and restarted the service, am i missing anything?01:15
damion_dark8so whenever i start graphical applications i use gksudo?01:19
n8tusermonostone-> you have an entry in your syslog.conf ? which is what?01:19
sebsebsebdamion_dark8: whenever you want a graphical  app to have sudo you use gksudo yes01:19
monostonen8tuser, no new entries in syslog01:21
damion_dark8whenever i want a graphical application to have superuser privileges (ie root), i use gksudo instead of sudo.01:21
sebsebsebdamion_dark8: yes01:21
Boffohello it's boffo again, im back on windows, although i cant seem to run the "fsck" command01:21
n8tusermonostone-> if no entry within syslog.conf , how do you expect the syslogd to insert log entries?01:21
tomas_There are of this type of chat in Spanish01:22
ubottuEn la mayoría de canales Ubuntu se comunica en inglés. Para ayuda en Español, por favor entre en los canales #ubuntu-es o #kubuntu-es.01:22
n8tuserBoffo-> fsck is unix/linux command not a windows01:22
Alan502n8tuser: just wanted to tell you i was the one with the partition problems yesterday. The only solution i found was complete partitioning01:22
Boffoso i should run chksdk?01:22
monostonen8tuser, first the dnscache log is owned by user: dnslog, and logging is redirected as I specified to /var/log/dnscache/. Why should syslog be recording anything?01:22
tomas_ubottu Thanks!!!01:22
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about Thanks!!!01:22
n8tuserAlan502-> oh okay, a new install resolved it?01:22
n8tusermonostone-> whats the perms on /var/log ? can anyone write to that dir?01:23
comicinkerBoffo: oh, I forgot. it is call chkdsk01:23
monostonen8tuser, logging was working correctly in its original location /etc/dnscache/log/main/ I just moved the folder, maintaining permissions, and edited the /log/run file accordingly01:23
Boffookay thank you, i was running it earlier, but i stopped in the middle cuz... i forgot. but ill give it another try01:24
comicinkerBoffo: maybe you will have to type in something like chkdsk -f c:01:24
n8tusermonostone-> look at the perms on /var/log/ dir  and is your user dnslog  able to write or not?01:24
comicinkerBoffo: no. chkdsk c: /f01:24
monostonen8tuser,  the log folder is owned by root01:25
n8tusermonostone-> correct, and does user dnslog  have same priviledge?01:25
damion_dark8i saved aircrack-ng-1.0.tar.gz01:25
booleancatBah, so I've pretty much solved all of my other problems with PXE, but now I'm running into a weird problem with mounting an nfs share. No matter what I try, I get the error "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting" is this likely a problem with /etc/exports, or /etc/hosts.deny?01:25
BoffoChkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another01:25
Boffoprocess.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be01:25
Boffochecked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)01:25
damion_dark8what do i do with tar.gz files?01:25
matthew1so...I can't grab and move my panels. is there a key I need to be pressing?01:26
comicinkerBoffo: guess01:26
monostonen8tuser, no, dnslog is a specific user for logging dnscache, it does not have root privileges01:26
Boffoshould i run it in safe mode with cmd?01:26
comicinkerBoffo: no. check on next boot. type in Y01:26
n8tusermonostone-> correct, so either a root user or a user with root priviledge are the only ones allowed to write in that dir.. following me?01:27
Boffooh sry lol im being stupid at the moment01:27
comicinkerBoffo: yes. ;;)01:27
Boffobrb :)01:27
monostonen8tuser, but the /var/log/dnscache folder is owned by dnslog. And i see log files written by syslog user which is part of adm group, and these don't have root privileges either01:28
damion_dark8does ubuntu use GNOME or KDE?01:28
damion_dark8im guessing GMONE right?01:28
comicinkerdamion_dark8: ubuntu uses gnome01:28
damion_dark8ok thanks01:29
Out_Colddamion_dark8, ubuntu= gnome kubuntu=kde01:29
comicinkerdamion_dark8: kubuntu kde01:29
n8tusermonostone-> you're the one that told me, owner of /var/log is root, so am just following the logic,01:29
booleancatSo, I take it nobody can help with the nfs problem? It's a real bugger...01:29
monostonen8tuser, yes true, but the folder dnscache inside /var/log isn't owned by root. isn't this like the /home folder being owned by root, but then the users folder under /home being owned by him?01:30
woodyjlwI know on windows when you erase a thumb drive you right click and format but on ubuntu I dont see that as an option so what do I do to erase a drive on ubuntu?01:30
n8tusermonostone-> whats the perms on /var/log/dnscache/  ?01:30
kermitfor some reason my built in web cam stopped working.. it was.. why would it stop?  it says no such device now.01:31
comicinkerwoodyjlw: <ctrl> a delete01:31
woodyjlwill try that01:32
monostonen8tuser, 0755 for the dnscache/ folder and 0644 for the logfiles within01:32
n8tusermonostone can you paste the owner:group ?01:32
monostonen8tuser, dnslog:djbdns01:33
damion_dark8gcc compiler is for noobies like me?01:33
woodyjlwok that erased all the folders and stuff so I guess there would be no reason to format it then right?01:33
comicinkerwoodyjlw: delete will move files to the trash. to completeley remove them use <shift> delete.01:34
m_lawso does anyone have an android phone and does it work well with ubuntu01:34
Out_Colddamion_dark8, gcc is fairly easy to use01:34
damion_dark8damn im so lost01:34
n8tusermonostone-> and the owner:group of  /var/log   ?01:34
comicinkerwoodyjlw: to remove files from the trash of your thumbdrive, go to .Trash-1000 of your thumb drive01:35
woodyjlwcool that worked :) thanks01:35
monostonen8tuser, root:root,  i also believe something with permissions, since in its original /etc/dnscache location it logged fine, but same as /var/log /etc is also owned by root, and also /var/log/dnscache is owned by dnslog:djbdns same as /etc/dnscache (the original location)01:35
woodyjlwit now shows no used space on drive :)01:35
damion_dark8damn i dont know what to do.01:36
Out_Colddamion_dark8, what are you trying to compile?01:36
damion_dark8well, im tyring to learn how to use this operating system.01:36
damion_dark8but i installed it simply to use aircrack-ng01:36
n8tusermonostone-> if you were to su as dnslog  can you write to that directory of /var/log/ ?01:36
Out_Coldfair enough so have you installed ubuntu 9.04 then?01:36
damion_dark8i installed aircrack-ng from synaptics package manager...01:37
damion_dark8i just don't know how to open it.01:37
ewpwhat is up with people and aircrack-ng lately. knowing almost zilch about linux infrastructure they wanna hack wifi networks with aircrack suite :-\01:37
Out_Coldoh lol.. well it's a CLI tool01:37
damion_dark8well i'd do it in windows but windows doesn't support it.01:37
monostonen8tuser, that isn't possible to do, since dnslog, has no login01:37
damion_dark8windows doesn't support a lot of stuff01:37
Out_Coldyou have to open a terminal and try airmon-ng <wlan0>01:37
corpteddyHey all, i downloaded skype and instaled it, but when i logg on all my contacts are gone,, somone ho know how and whay? hehe (sorry my spelling are from norway)01:38
Out_Colduse your interface instead of wlan001:38
ewpdamion_dark8, join #aircrack-ng01:38
ctmjrewp: same person new nick me thinks01:38
n8tusermonostone-> you can give it ability to login, am curious to as why it would not allow you to write though...am perplexed01:38
monostonen8tuser,  what does a 't' bit at the end of the permissions string indicate? drwxr-sr-t01:38
Out_Coldonce you have mon0 activated then you can try airodum-ng mon001:38
ewpctmjr may be onto something :p01:38
damion_dark8my interface, as in, my ssid?01:38
Out_Colddamion_dark8, no.. check out ifconfig or iwconfig or airmon-ng01:39
SEJeffHas anyone seen karmic hard lock with only '^@^@^@^@^' aka binary goo in /var/log/messages when it happens? I'm not sure if this needs to be reported or how to troubleshoot it.01:39
n8tusermonostone-> sticky bits and you have two, the s and the t there.. i have to refer back to old notes.. hehe01:39
SEJeffThe only unusual thing is an ati video card using fglrx01:39
ewpdump collects the ivs, aireplay does the packet injection and aircrack does the cracking... it's not that difficult once you're familiar with cli :-\01:39
SEJeffKarmic has caused these hard locks very frequently01:39
comicinkerSEJeff: #ubuntu+101:39
SEJeffcomicinker, Thanks01:40
ewphasn't someone made a gui for aircrack yet?01:40
Out_Colddamion_dark8, it will show up as something like wlan0 or eth1 or similar01:40
damion_dark8oh wow i actuallly got somehting done...i had to run airmon-ng as a superuser....so i did sudo airmon-ng and put in my password01:40
damion_dark8yeah i see it now01:40
lluadmonostone: Sticky bit. means you can't delete a file unless you own it. Usually used on /tmp and friends. Check man chmod.01:40
damion_dark8cool. i getting somewhere.01:40
monostonen8tuser, aha!! i think you just enlightened me!!! the multilog binary which handles the logging issues the setuidgid command01:40
Out_Colddamion_dark8, i know the basics or aircrack utils so if you need more help let me know01:41
monostonen8tuser, could that be part of the problem?01:41
akatsukihi everyone01:41
n8tusermonostone-> i forget things myself, so i have to refer back to some tutorial again myself01:41
woodyjlwI have a fujitsu laptop hard drive and wondering if there is a utility under ubuntu that can write it to zero to completely blank the drive01:41
corpteddy Hey all, i downloaded skype and instaled it, but when i logg on all my contacts are gone,, somone ho know how and whay? hehe (sorry my spelling are from norway)01:41
akatsukiis it possible to determine the internet speed through some linux command?01:41
ech0s7why fonts in java applications haven't hinting ?01:41
n8tusermonostone-> i think with the s and the t being set, yes, those could be the source of the problem if not set correctly01:41
Out_Coldakatsuki, you could always go to speedtest.com01:42
damion_dark8thank you outcold01:42
booleancatWell, a reboot didn't work... and now my video is all messed up. Any ideas why nvidia isn't listed under my "restricted drivers" section?01:42
woodyjlwi would need to run it from live cd to blank the drive to zero if I can01:42
akatsukiOut_Cold: i am thinking i can include it on conky01:42
comicinkerwoodyjlw: sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/you_fujitsu01:42
damion_dark8what does CLI acronym stand for?01:42
Flanneldamion_dark8: Command line interface01:42
lluadmonostone: daemontools overloads the sticky bit to control logging, IIRC01:42
booleancatdamion_dark8: Command Line Interface01:42
damion_dark8oh ok01:42
damion_dark8idelly i jsut wanna play around with aircrack now....i know i have to download a special driver for my internal wireless device on my laptop.01:43
damion_dark8i have the RTL8185 wireles device.01:43
damion_dark8i just can't find the driver for it.01:43
SEJefflluad, setuidgid is a command01:43
Out_Colddamion_dark8, what's your device?01:43
DeathMetalDeanDoes anyone know where I can find a video editor that can turn the video 90 degrees?01:43
matthew1where is the start menu button located in nautilus/01:44
monostonen8tuser, lluad :let me check into this01:44
SEJeffmatthew1, This isn't windows. There isn't a start menu. Take a look at the "Applications" menu with an Ubuntu logo in the top left01:44
Out_Colddamion_dark8, try lspci | grep 802.1101:44
damion_dark8well if I run airmon-ng as superuser, it says RTL8180/RTL818501:44
damion_dark8the driver installed is rtl818001:45
booleancatNobody? I can boot into the older kernel and get the nvidia stuff to load perfectly, anybody know how I can fix my current kernel to include the nvidia stuff?01:45
ewphaha classic01:45
matthew1SEJeff...that's not what I'm asking...i'm trying to change the menu button to something else I just called it a "start" button...I want to find where the image is in nautilus01:45
ewp"where's the start button?"01:45
SEJeffmatthew1, It isn't an image, it is text01:45
woodyjlwcomicinker  will that comand work from live cd?01:45
ewpmatthew1, you can use ubuntu-tweak to change it01:45
comicinkerwoodyjlw: yes. but be careful with that command!01:45
mnainesHow do I connect to a network share in Ubuntu?01:46
burntresistorwhats a good program for ubuntu to play hd movies i have a hd dvd player  for the 36001:46
burntresistorwill vlc work?01:46
matthew1SEJeff...the ubuntu logo that gives me the menu is an image...I changed it to something by editing the png files for, but I forgot where it was and I can't find it online01:46
matthew1and I want to change it to something else01:46
woodyjlwI wrote it down. anything bad can happen if I dont do it write?01:46
damion_dark8what does that command do?01:46
Out_Colddamion_dark8, lets try with your current driver....01:46
booleancatSo, nobody can help with either my nfs problem OR my nvidia problem? please?01:47
Out_Coldthat lists your network device01:47
ewpmatthew1, you can use ubuntu-tweak to change it01:47
comicinkerwoodyjlw: dd erases unrecoverable. even the FBI will try hard to recover that data01:47
Out_Coldbooleancat, you can check out #nvidia01:47
damion_dark8o000....tr aircrack with my current driver to see if I can fetch a good number of IVs....I will try it.01:47
mnainesHow do I connect to a network share on Ubuntu?01:47
DeathMetalDeanDoes anyone know where I can find a video editor that can turn the video 90 degrees?01:47
matthew1ewp...I'd rather just find the location. i always use shortcuts and that's why I don't know anything01:47
booleancatOut_Cold: Thanks, all I wanted was *some* form of response01:47
jiohdi3anyone know how to make 7z show up in the menus as extract here?01:47
Out_Colddamion_dark8, turn your card into monitor with airmon-ng start <wlan0>  <--insert your device01:48
Out_Coldbooleancat, what's the nvidia issue?01:48
comicinkerwoodyjlw: so make sure you have the reight /dev/drive. and/or partition. after a reboot, the letters might change01:48
corpteddyhow can i get bigger text inn here?01:48
damion_dark8well my wireless device is built into my laptop.01:48
SEJeffjiohdi3, Install nautilus-actions and create a menu entry for it01:48
damion_dark8no card.01:48
misteralexanderI forgot, how do I load new fonts onto my system?  I recall there being a terminal thing, stuff to type to update the cache.  Any ideas?  I've already searched Ubuntu Help.01:48
damion_dark8im thinking of buying one though.01:48
Out_Colddamion_dark8, it's still considered a card :p01:48
=== jiohdi3 is now known as jiohdi
akatsukii have 6 virtual workspaces, is there a shortcut key to just go from workspace 1 to workspace 4?01:48
jiohdiSEJeff, I know there is some way to do it through bash... but I cant remember how01:49
damion_dark8oh ok01:49
woodyjlwok well I am useing a 40 gig now but will be installing my 100 gig witch has had several OS systems installed and I would like to do a full clean format on it before I install again01:49
Out_Coldakatsuki, try ctrl + alt + left, left. left01:49
comicinkerakatsuki: ctrl alt up,down,left,right01:49
booleancatWell, I'm setting up some PXE boot stuff, and set up a new kernel image to boot off of nfs. Long story short, I accidentally trashed the most recent kernel under ubuntu, so I rebuilt it with an mkinitramfs command. Ever since, I can't get the nvidia card to even show up under the new kernel. Booting an older kernel works fine01:49
damion_dark8Ohh ok i see what you mean01:49
jiohdiSEJeff, I use Thunar01:49
mnainesCan anyone read what I'm typing?01:50
booleancatmnaines: yes01:50
Out_Coldyes mnaines01:50
comicinkermnaines: no. I cant't read what your typing01:50
mnainesok...Just wondering why nobody is answering my question01:50
akatsukiOut_Cold: comicinker: Yeah but with that I have to pass through other workspaces first before getting to workspace 4... A direct switch to ws 4 from ws 1... is it possible?01:50
booleancatmnaines: What type of network share? nfs, samba, etc01:50
Out_Coldbooleancat, as far as i'm thinking you need to load in the nvidia modules to the kernel..01:50
SEJeffjiohdi, So ask on #xubuntu or #xfce01:50
mnainesbooleancat, I'm trying to connect to a shared folder on a Windows box01:51
comicinkermnaines: what network share?01:51
booleancatOut_Cold: Is that why it won't show up under the System->Hardware Drivers menu?01:51
Out_Coldakatsuki, you can click on the window on your task panel?01:51
comicinkermnaines: a virtual one?01:51
mnainesIts a shared folder on a Windows box, comicinker...That's all I can say01:51
ewpmnaines, sometimes ubuntu wont show samba clients in "network" but you can just access by smb://<ip or hostname>/01:51
Out_Coldbooleancat, that seems to look like the reason..01:51
woodyjlwmaybe I should install irc in live cd and see if some one can help make sure I dont screw up lol :)01:51
jiohdiSEJeff because those channels are usually ghost towns01:51
Out_Coldbooleancat, i would do more googling on loading nvidia modules01:52
comicinkermnaines: did you had a look in places->network?01:52
mnainescomicinker: When I click that, it pops up with an error:  "Cannot Mount Network:  Unable to retrieve share list from server"01:52
misteralexanderI forgot, how do I load new fonts onto my system?  I recall there being a terminal thing, stuff to type to update the cache.  Any ideas?  I've already searched Ubuntu Help.01:52
elvtarsakatsuki: you can set a keyboard shortcut for it in system preferences...01:53
DeathMetalDeanDoes anyone know where I can find a video editor that can flip the video 90 degrees?01:53
Rooftopsanyone know how to change the capture key for VirtualBox OSE?01:53
Out_Coldmisteralexander, go into synaptics package manager and search for new fonts01:53
monostonen8tuser, lluad: yeah, i found the error, the logging is still being done to the old log file, EVEN though i renamed the folder and modified the run script which specifies the mulitlog location, as well as trying both svc -d /service/dnscache svc -u /service/dnscache as well as trying svc -h /service/dnscache01:53
_Trinity_hi all01:53
comicinkerDeathMetalDean: avidemux?01:53
akatsukiOut_Cold: I am using a laptop, and as much as possible I practice myself not to rely on touchpad for access.. but if there's no way to do that then I have to settle with ctrl + arrow keys.. :(01:53
Out_Cold!hi | _Trinity_01:53
ubottu_Trinity_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines. Enjoy your stay!01:53
_Trinity_say what does glxgears install with?01:53
comicinkermnaines: try ewp's tip01:54
damion_dark8hmmm...apparantly I dont need to install that "special" driver being as I have ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope01:54
Out_Coldakatsuki, or the kb shortcut idea offered above..01:54
_Trinity_thanks ubottu, lol!01:54
booleancatAlright, thanks Out_Cold01:54
misteralexanderOut_Cold: I've got the fonts, about 10,000 ttf's . . . I know I can just put them in "/home/username/.fonts . . . but wasn't there something about updating the cache?01:54
DeathMetalDeancomicinker: I tried it, I don't think you can on it01:54
Out_Colddamion_dark8, sometimes the defaults are good ;)01:54
damion_dark8according to this website http://forum.aircrack-ng.org/index.php?topic=3833.001:54
booleancatNow, has anyone else ran into the problem of being unable to mount an nfs share with the error "mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting"01:54
damion_dark8yeah thats awesome.01:55
damion_dark8i was sure the driver part would set me back a ways.01:55
Out_Coldmisteralexander, the only thing i can think of is "updatedb"01:55
_Trinity_I just figured out whow to get X with the r128 driver working after daysss01:55
misteralexanderk. thanks!01:55
akatsukiOut_Cold: Oh yeah I overlooked that reply.. will look into that one now..01:55
ewp_Trinity_, congrats :)01:55
comicinkerDeathMetalDean: load the video in avidemux, go to video->filter->rotate01:56
Out_Cold*** For every single linux problem, there exists 30 solutions ;)01:56
damion_dark8is there a way to get the terminal background black and text to be white?01:56
damion_dark8easier on the eyes.01:56
_Trinity_but I realized that I don't have glxgears01:56
Out_Colddamion_dark8, in the menu settings at the top01:56
ewplet me add, arch linux is DEFINITELY not a distro for linux beginners :-P (just installed a vbox vm today)01:56
_Trinity_I must have uninstalled them with I uninstalled the ubuntu-desktop01:56
Rooftopsno one knows? :(01:57
Out_Coldyea no arch for noobs lmao01:57
tornI almost always disable my swap, because it's never needed with the things I do on my computer. However, is Linux like Windows where it will force using page/swap memory when your physical memory is running low?01:57
Kingsy101can someone tell me why, everytime I start ubuntu /var/run/screen gets reset from 777 back to its default setting? It means I need to chmod evertime I boot ubuntu.. anyone seen something like that before?01:57
akatsukielvtars: Hmmm. I am assuming it's the keyboard shortcut under the System Preference.. I can only set shortcut keys for 2 workspaces.....01:57
ctmjr_Trinity_: to get glxgears install mesa-utils01:57
DeathMetalDeancomicinker: Thanks very much :D01:57
ewparch is better than gentoo at least, gentoo is like compile hell01:57
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!01:57
monostonen8tuser, lluad: is it possible that a complete reboot is necessary to enable these changes??01:57
_Trinity_ctmjr: thanks01:58
Out_ColdRooftops, why not ask in #virtualbox01:58
damion_dark8oh thats a lot better. i can read easier now.01:58
^robertjcan anyone recommend an 802.11 printer/scanner combo that behaves nicely in Ubuntu?01:58
Rooftopsi guess that would help... lol01:58
Xodiac13i have a problem i need help i have installed the drivers from ati and when i load up playonlinux it says it doesnt detect 3d on my video card01:58
comicinkerDeathMetalDean: next time, remember not to turn your mobile ;)01:58
damion_dark8ha, i can change it xchat too. woot01:58
n8tusermonostone-> dont have to be a complete reboot01:58
Rooftopsthanks, i was trying to find that before01:58
ewpXodiac13, glxinfo | grep direct  <-- does that say yes?01:58
DeathMetalDeancomicinker: ahahaha xD! yeah thanks lmfao xD awesome guess :P01:58
n8tusermonostone-> perhaps a change of level to single user and then back01:58
Out_Coldewp, #virtualbox forwards you to #vbox lol01:59

LemurianIf I'm using apt, downloading A, can I remove the /var/dpkg/lock and download B whilst A is ongoing?01:59
LjLLemurian: no!01:59
n8tuserLemurian-> it may corrupt your system01:59
LemurianLjL: why?01:59

Lemuriann8tuser: why?01:59
corpteddysomone who know whay my cam dont work at aMSN? its just white inn the other side..01:59
LjLLemurian: there's a *reason* the lock is there.02:00
LemurianLjL: what's that reason?02:00
grafixbadnowhi room... mind-numbingly stupid question. I just used synaptics package manager to get googleearth-package. How do I get the program up & running?02:00
Out_ColdLemurian, system corruption02:00
Xodiac13ewp: uhm i seem to have a problem i just installed the drivers from ati thinking they where going to be better and now its not02:00
elvtarsakatsuki: you can add more shortcut, right click or something...02:00
n8tuserLemurian-> they put locks so no other process/users have access to same files02:00
feNNec_torn: swap = at least 2 times the memory size02:00
FlannelLemurian: Specifically, apt database corruption02:00
comicinkerLemurian: only one package manager is allowed to run at the same time02:00
Xodiac13ewp: lol i just had 3d and now catalyst doesnt want to load all of a sudden02:00
LemurianI wonder why portage allows multiple downloads02:00
LjLLemurian: the reason is that APT isn't in the least engineered to support multiple concurrent operations.02:00
tornfeNNec_, but what about this:02:00
Lemurianare there alternate package management systems for ubuntu other than apt02:00
tornfeNNec_, I almost always disable my swap, because it's never needed with the things I do on my computer. However, is Linux like Windows where it will force using page/swap memory when your physical memory is running low?02:01
Xodiac13ewp: it was working like a minute a ago02:01
LemurianLjL: right :)02:01
=== mike is now known as KpNemo
ewpXodiac13, well do you get direct rendering or no?02:01
Flanneltorn: No, if you have no swap, it won't swap, it'll just have problems02:01
jalbneyi have a question... been asking it in all the other rooms and no one has an answer. hopefully someone here can help me02:01
Xodiac13ewp: no02:01
Xodiac13ewp: i get an error02:01
tornOkay, thank you, Flannel.02:01
Kingsy101anyone got an idea about my problem?02:01
Xodiac13ewp: how do i uninstall the ati drivers now so i can go to hardware drivers and install that on02:01
_Trinity_well it doesnt look lliek I have much accel but it feels smoother02:02
ewpXodiac13, lsmod to see if fglrx is loaded02:02
Xodiac13ewp: how do i uninstall the ati drivers now so i can go to hardware drivers and install that one*02:02
Out_Coldsorry Kingsy10102:02
tornFlannel, the reason I asked is because Windows, against the user's choice, will force virtual memory when RAM runs low.02:02
Xodiac13ewp: k02:02
grafixbadnowdoes anyone know how to get google earth running on 9.04? I downloaded googleearth-package from synaptics, but I don't know what to do now?02:02
_Trinity_fps peak at 2402:02
Flanneltorn: That said, for sufficient RAM, you don't need 2x, and for some values, 1x is too much (unless you're doing special things, or wanting to hibernate)02:02
MagicSpellerBack for more help: I know now how to reinstall GRUB. First, though, I need to remove it completely so that for now, my system will automatically run Windows Vista. How can I do this?02:02
tornFlannel, I found on 2 GB, I never need swap.02:02
_Trinity_anyone have a Rage 128 card? What fps rate do you get?02:02
feNNec_torn: if you have a lot (> 2Go) mem, then you can disable swap, or set it to 2 Go only. But don't forget hibernation need02:02
Xodiac13ewp: no i just did a clean install and i installed the video card driver wtf02:02
tornFlannel, even when running a virtual machine that gets dedicated 512mb, I'm still hovering around 1 GB of RAM usage....02:02
vegaterain101 weird02:03
Xodiac13ewp: is there a way to fix it02:03
jalbneylooking for someone who is good with kubuntu 8.04 ( i know this is ubuntu, but nowhere else has helped) with kde 3.5.10 and would like just kdecore-without upgrading my kubuntu or my kde02:03
Xodiac13ewp: cause its irritating me to no end02:03
tornfeNNec_, yup. And I don't use hibernation, anyways.02:03
ewpXodiac13, well were debugging the source of the problem02:03
vegaterain101 wuts this thing for02:03
Kingsy101Out_Cold - sorry about what?02:03
Xodiac13ewp: o okay02:03
tornThanks for clearing it up, guys!02:03
Flannelgrafixbadnow: Looks like googleearth-package isn't what you want.  It doesn't install google earth.  Instead, you can enable medibuntu and then install google earth, or just download google earth from medibuntu, and then install it.02:03
Out_Coldno help  for your problem02:03
Xodiac13ewp: i love ati DRIVERS woot02:03
ewpXodiac13, check if the driver is even loaded (lsmod | grep fglrx)02:03
LjLvegaterain101: do you have an Ubuntu question?02:03
Kingsy101ahhh not a problem, I am sure someone in here will know02:03
Flannelgrafixbadnow: See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu for instructions for either method02:03
ewpXodiac13, yea they're awesome arent they lol02:04

jalbney<< waiting in line for help :) Kubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron with KDE 3.5.1002:04
grafixbadnowFlannel: thanks a bunch! will do that now02:04
Xodiac13ewp: it doesnt say anything02:04
DeathMetalDeancomicinker: how do I do this? :o I go into video > Filters then I click rotate, flip it 270 degrees and then Idk what to do, it won't flip :o02:04
ewpXodiac13, then it didn't load02:04
Out_Coldjalbney, what's wrong with installing just the one package?02:04
Xodiac13ewp: do you know how to fix it by any change PLEASE02:04
Flanneljalbney: Have you tried #kubuntu?  I'm not familiar with what kde-core provides exactly, but depending on how it's linked (and what you're upgrading to) it might not be possible02:04
Xodiac13ewp: :)02:05
jalbneyi only have a live cd, and no blanks02:05
Kingsy101anyone else have any ideas about my issue?02:05
ewpXodiac13, modprobe fglrx02:05
jalbneyyes i have tried that channel flannel, no one is there02:05
Xodiac13ewp: k02:05

torngwop, you don't need swap, then.02:31
Xodiac13epw: dont leave me alone i need step by step help incase something goes wrong02:31
torngwop, but you should still create a swap partition, just in case.02:31
gwoptorn, i made the ext4 logical02:32
torngwop, delete the partition you just made and right-click to create a new one (starting from scratch).02:32
gwoptorn, ok02:32
torngwop, make the first partition an Extended type.02:32
monostoneI need my local nameserver to be the first authority, before it checks the global servers02:32
ewpXodiac13, i sent you a PM02:32

Pirate_Hunters0u1t: yes, like you said trying to, just need to make sure it is secure and someway to be able to keep track of ips/connections02:32
JeruvyBoffo: if you have ntfs-3g installed, you can try this:  ntfsfix /dev/sda402:32
Xodiac13epw: how do i check it02:32
m0vthought wrong02:32
torngwop, extended partitions will not be formatted. Think of them as "containers" for other logical partitions.02:33
JeruvyBoffo: replace sda4 with sda1, or your appropriate disk, sorry.02:33
s0u1tyes but what applications etc are you trying to "manage"02:33

Xodiac13call "ewp"02:34
ewpXodiac13, how do you do what02:34
kevin|demarestmonostone: I was working on that awhile ago.  I couldn't figure out how to assign the dns server to my client.  Are you using a static ip on your system?  Did you already set up your local nameserver?02:34
s0u1tkinda need more details on what your trying to manage02:35
epaphushello, where is the X config located? my ubuntu has detcted an "unknown" monitor that is really causing conflicts and i need to remove it...02:35
Xodiac13ewp: you said call you lol how do i do that in here02:35
gwoptorn, there is no extended you mean ext3 or ext402:35
epaphusiam unable to remove it through the GUI panel02:35
torngwop, not for filesystem type. For partition type.02:35
ewpXodiac13, i meant type 'ewp', not 'epw'02:35
torngwop, there are 3 types of partition types: Primary, Extended, and Logical02:35
s0u1tPirate_Hunter you mentioned you didn02:36
gwoptorn, i only see primary and logical02:36
s0u1t't want to look at log files... what do you want to look at exactly02:36
torngwop, maybe the installer automatically creates an extended when you choose logical.02:37
gwoptorn, http://img3.imageshack.us/img3/5344/screenshotmr.png02:37
gwoptorn, ok02:37
monostonekevin|demarest, yes, i am using a static IP, i have setup my local nameserver as well. running dnsq ns server-name IP gives a correct answer02:37
kejavaepaphus: sounds like you want /etc/X11/xorg.conf but yours is most likely empty02:37
torngwop, okay, then select logical, and make the size 3072 MB.02:37
torngwop, and for filesystem type, choose swap.02:38
monostonekevin|demarest, now, when i try a dnsqr ns server-name it jumps directly to the global providers, and totally ignores my local nameserver02:38
Pirate_Hunters0u1t: huh?02:38
kevin|demarestmonostone: I think you've gotten farther than I have.  Bind9 runs on my local server, but I don't think it's set up properly02:38
gwoptorn, ok done02:38
torngwop, screenshot, just to double check?02:38

akatsuki8.04 does not include the add option for keyboard short cut... is there other way to add short cuts in hardy?02:39
n-iCeI'm back!02:39
gwoptorn, i noticed it02:39
epaphuskejava, why would mine be empty?02:39
n-iCesebsebseb: there?02:39
s0u1t'd have to refer you to the web server software documentation for specific procedures to secure it02:39
s0u1tit will be different for each webserver platform02:39
sebsebsebn-iCe: yes02:40
gwoptorn, nothing for mount point correct02:40
torngwop, before we continue, look at the partition number. It says sda5, not sda1.02:40
gwoptorn, ok02:40
epaphuskejava, its not empty.. but it is very simple...  how can I remove that screen that it dected..02:41
kejavaepaphus: with the newer versions of X,  they're "bullet proof" and no longer need configuration.  it should be empty now.  you still have the option to force some parameters in there.  btw, mine is empty.02:41
torngwop, just a quick note: The four Primary/Extended partitions that can exist on an msdos partition table are partitions 1 through 4. However, partitions 5 through whatever are logical partitions that can reside within an extended one.02:41
kejavaepaphus: got any "screen" sections in your config?  may need to remove or edit them.02:42
epaphuskejava, i only have one...02:42
gwoptorn, how do i make it sda102:42
epaphusthe problem is i need to start my laptop with a HDMI cable because if not the screen will show distorted02:42
kejavaepaphus: paste bin the file so we can see it02:42
epaphusany change i do in the screen resolution panel doesnt take effect02:42
torngwop, so in your case, you have Partition #1 as an Extended. Partition #2, #3, and #4 are not used yet (might never be, in fact.) Partition #5 is your swap (within #1 extended), and #6 will be root, and #7 will be home. (All 3 within #1 extended).02:43
torngwop, you can't. sda1 is the extended partition (which was automatically created when you made the logical one.)02:43
gwoptorn, ah ok02:43
torngwop, makes more sense now?02:43
gwoptorn, yeah02:43
epaphuskejava, http://pastebin.com/d41d2e94702:43
gwoptorn, so what next02:44
torngwop, it's easier to think about it visually. 1 through 4 are the primary/extended partitions. 5 through infinity are the logical partitions, which live inside 1, 2, 3, or 4 (in your case, only #1 is ever being used, and 2, 3, 4 are unused.)02:44
torngwop, create another partition in the free space, and make the size what you want the system (root) partition to be.02:45
nyRednekany clue on when amsynth is going to be brought to speed?02:45
movelawhat app can i use as a webcam or camera on my laptop? thnks!02:45
torngwop, I'd recommend 10 GB (10240 MB), which is enough breathing room for Ubuntu, plus extra software. You can make it bigger if you want.02:45
nyRednekmovela, cheese02:45
torngwop, in this case, you'd format it as ext402:45
movelanyRednek: thanks.. any others beside cheese?02:45
kejavaepaphus: try commenting out "Virtual 2304 800".  that part may cause issues.  other than that, you have nothing else in there that can do much.  is this a crt or lcd monitor?02:46
gwoptorn, can i use the rest of the free space as ext4?02:46
nyRednekmovela, that one seems to work best02:46
movelaok thanks02:46
epaphuskejava, its a laptop.. ill try renaming the file02:46
epaphusso it creates one02:46
torngwop, I wouldn't do that.02:46
torngwop, read my above message.02:46
gwopok 10gb02:46
kejavaepaphus: you can also try completely deleting the contents of the file02:47
torngwop, it's best to keep the / and /home partitions seperate, and not to simply include EVERYTHING (such as user home directories) within the / partition.02:47
torngwop, did you choose / as the mount point?02:47
gwoptorn, i see02:47
torngwop, edit it, if you did not.02:47
nyRedneki've found that sometimes, with a heavy dose of audio apps, 10gb just isn't enough, but i've never taken up 20gb02:47
gwoptorn, yea02:47
epaphusthanks ill try02:47
gwoptorn, make that one logical as well?02:48
tornnyRednek, even on openSUSE (DVD installation), my / never went above 5 GB.02:48
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about regex02:48
nyRednekwhile we're asking about programs, does anyone know of a relatively easy video editor?02:48
torngwop, correct.02:48
Out_Coldtorn, i have installed up to 8 GB02:48
Out_Coldunder / without counting /home/02:48
torngwop, logical, format, filesystem ext4, mount point /02:48
tornOut_Cold, with Ubuntu, fresh install?02:49
Out_Coldtorn, no not fresh install lol...02:49
tornOut_Cold, or after installing extra apps?02:49
nyRedneki'm pushing 5gb now02:49
tornOut_Cold, I was about to say, lol.02:49
comicinkernyRednek: kdenlive02:49
gwoptorn, ok that one is sda6 etx4 / 10240 mb02:49
nyRednekcomicinker, ok, i tried to do some stuff with kino, but i like to put audio on still frames that transition02:49
gwoptorn, what will come of the rest of the free space?02:50
torngwop, it's up to you if you want it to be 10gb or 20gb, whichever you prefer. If you want to play it safe, go with 20gb. But keep in mind, that means 10gb less will be available for your files, pictures, music, videos, etc.02:50
nyRednekcomicinker, i'm NOT a pro with video02:50
nyRednekcomicinker, but i'll try that02:50
torngwop, final partition: logical, format, ext4, mount point /home02:50
torngwop, you can use up the rest of your free space for this last partition.02:50
comicinkernyRednek: DVD slideshows? tried devede?02:50
Out_Coldgwop, if you take the time to learn LVMs you can make dynamic disks that you can change according to your needs02:51
histoAnyone know how I can blow out a users settings taking them back to default?02:51
histoJust delete .gconf?02:51
epaphusIt worked kejava thanks :)02:51
histoDefault gnome I should specify sory02:51
nyRednekcomicinker, i'm slowly working into doing some stuff that is going to involve some more advanced processing02:51
epaphusI messed up trying to configure my external HDMI screen02:51
kejavaepaphus: great!  glad i could help :)02:51
tornOut_Cold, I think he just wants a traditional Ubuntu installation.02:51
nyRednekcomicinker, putting different video sources in boxes within the final video02:51
nyRednekcomicinker, will that do it?02:51
Out_Coldtorn, yea.. but throwing the idea out there02:52
histonvm i'll remove .gnome .gnome2 .gconf .gconfd .metacity02:52
Out_Coldlike i said earlier... 1 problem has 30 solutions ;)02:52
tornOut_Cold, it's cool.02:52
gwoptorn, http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/6835/screenshotin.png02:52
comicinkernyRednek: just try them all out. for advanced video editing, use jashaka or blender02:52
tornOut_Cold, with Windows, 1 solution generates 30 problems.02:52
Out_Coldso true02:52
nyRednekcomicinker, i thought blender was more solid modeling?02:53
torngwop, you're ready to roll.02:53
gwoptorn, thanks02:53
comicinkerblender is everything. it will make your live better.02:53
epaphusSo now.. I have a laptop.. and Id like to mirror my screen to the HDMI connected LCD panel...  by defualt it should always do that.. whats the bets way to do it?02:53
nyRednekcomicinker, a good tutorial for blender?(don't say rtfm)02:53
torngwop, anytime.02:54
comicinkernyRednek: rtfm. google? blender.org?02:54
torngwop, I'm not even a knowledgeable Linux user. I had used Windows for so long, but made the switch.02:54
torngwop, I'm still learning a lot of things as I go along. I doubt I'll ever figure out the super-elite advanced stuff, hehe.02:54
monostoneis it possible to run a nameserver on a local network, without the nameserver being officially registered?02:55
Xodiac13ewp: im back02:55
comicinkernyRednek: the best source is often the original home page. gimp is a good example02:55
Xodiac13ewp: how do i test to see it it worked02:55
ewpXodiac13, glxinfo | grep direct02:55
torncomicinker, jashaka has been ported to Linux? (I know, I'm slow.)02:55
blue-frogmonostone: yes02:55
Xodiac13ewp: k02:55
ewpXodiac13, does it say 'yes' ?02:55
Xodiac13ewp: it said yes02:55
ewpXodiac13, congrats you have 3d02:56
Xodiac13ewp: how do i check to see if my 3d is working02:56
Xodiac13ewp: thank you but is there something like fglxgears02:56
movelahow do i setup cheese? the app is working but the taking a pic/vid does not02:56
ewpXodiac13, well glxgears is what people like to look at for testing 3d02:56
gwoptorn, im still trying to understand the mount points part what is difference in / and /home?02:56
akatsukihow to determine gnome version?02:56
movelai know it worked the first time i did a clean install02:56
ewpXodiac13, fglrxgears02:56
Xodiac13ewp: dang lol it runs even better02:56
blue-froggwop: / is c:\  /home is d:\02:56
comicinkertorn: has it ever been windows only?02:57
ewpXodiac13, lol i was beginning to worry if i broke your xorg02:57
=== a1g is now known as alex4
Xodiac13ewp: it said command not found02:57
torngwop, / is the root partition. /home is where use home folders are located. This is the partition where each user saves their files, music, pictures, videos, etc. It is also where program settings are saved (in hidden folders that start with a period ".")02:57
Xodiac13ewp: how do i get to use fglrxgears02:57
blue-froggwop: if you ever separated your stuff in windows02:57
ewpXodiac13, it must just be glxgears then my bad02:57
nyRednekwasn't sure there was a blender.org02:57
torncomicinker, I'm not sure. I remember my cousin was using it on Windows a while back.02:57
nyRednekcomicinker, so...02:57
Xodiac13ewp: okay nice02:57
gwopahhh ok i see02:57
ewpXodiac13, whatever command gives you taht cool box with 3d gears02:57
Xodiac13ewp: it runs better than the drivers in hardware drivers02:57
gwopand what did the swap partition do?02:57
gwopor for02:57
Xodiac13ewp: lol02:57
blue-froggwop: pagefile02:57
ewpXodiac13, now go enable visual effect and compiz ;-)02:58
Xodiac13ewp: o yeah i love compiz woot woot02:58
torngwop, if you don't create a /home partition, then /home will simply act as a folder on the / partition. This is bad practice, since if you need to reinstall/reformat, all your personal files will vanish.02:58

nmatrix9Hey guys I'm encountering a fsck.ext3 e2fsck_read_bitmaps illegal bitmap blockv for /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol02 preventing from booting any tips on how to repair it?02:58
soreauXodiac13: glxinfo|grep renderer02:58
monostoneblue-frog, I've setup and configured tinydns on a server on my local network, dnsq or dig @ commands answer correctly, but when i try dnsqr or dig, it skips my nameserver and goes to global servers. How can I avoid this? My goal is to setup a complex dev environment which mimics a production setup.02:58
ewpsoreau, he's got a yes02:58
gwopahh ok i see now02:59
ewpsoreau, using fglrx driver now, not radeonhd02:59
soreauewp: That means nothing. YOu can have direct rendering while using software rasterizer02:59
Xodiac13ewp: soreau: OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 435002:59
comicinkernmatrix9: fsck -fy ?02:59
soreauXodiac13: fglrxinfo should talk about ati. And the program you're looking for is fgl_glxgears02:59
nmatrix9comicinker yeah already tried that and did a reboot still get that same error03:00
Xodiac13soreau: nice03:00
ewpsoreau, ah so there is a glxgears for fglrx03:00
Xodiac13soreau: where do i get it03:00
torngwop, but keeping / and /home as seperate partitions (mounted in these two locations, respectively) then you could literally format/install another distro on the / partition (sda6), and leave the /home partition (sda7) unformatted (but mount sda7 to /home during the installation). Then, you can continue with all of your personal files and settings still in tact, while on a new Linux installation.03:00
soreauewp: Sort of.. it's glxgears rendered on sides of a rotating cube03:00
=== alex1 is now known as a1g

ewpyou know, i may replace this radeon driver with fglrx now :-P03:01

movelakejava: when i did a clean install cheese worked. i installed some appz and it couldn't now03:03
Xodiac13ewp: cool peace03:03
obiwan__yeah comicinker , but -9 is when a process is considered important by the system, so it regrets to kill it. A  simple ls, isn't important. I shouldn't need the -903:04
ewpseyfarth, have you gotten the dual monitors working?03:04
seyfarthewp: think you got the wrong guy :)03:04
ewpseyfarth, ah sorry haha03:04

kejavamovela: does the /dev/video0 device actually exist?  check to make sure.  you may also want to try some other video apps too: gqcam and camorama03:07
comicinkerobiwan__ and kill needs you to specify a signal. kill pid won't work. maybe use  kill -15 pid.03:07
monostoneblue-frog, is that the correct solution to my issue? I would like to understand why my setup is failing, the same setup on a production environment with registered nameservers works flawlessly. isn't it possible to setup my local nameserver as the initial authority?03:07
movelathnaks kejava03:08
blue-frogmonostone: I am not in your local setup. I do not know what you wrote to achive what. Just saying that having dns locally automatically updated when local clients connect to the network works fine03:09
obiwan__ahh ok comicinker  i was mistaken then, thanks :)03:09
kejavamovela: both of those apps offer some nice command line parameters that could be useful03:09
monostoneblue-frog, yes i understand03:10
blue-frogmonostone: then if a client is looking straight for the root servers, tell him to search your domain first03:10
blue-frogmonostone: resolv.conf       search my-domain03:10
monostoneblue-frog, you're right! I forgot about that completely03:11
blue-frogmonostone: not to speak about the nameserver IP there's in it03:11
monostoneblue-frog, yes , obviously i have my local nameserver defined in resolv.conf. like i mentioned, local dig or dnsq commands return correct responses03:13

sarui was sooo impressed04:28
RukusXyah vista = strange and annoying (at least to me)04:29
sarui've kind of wanted to try Windows 704:29
RukusXme too04:29
RukusXbut i could never leave ubuntu now04:29
RukusXits getting too good04:29
dsnydersRukusX, I suspect that it might be a "misprint".  The USB is probably working at full speed despite the message.04:30
RukusXbefore when i tried 7.04 for the first time i was like mehhh ubuntu is ok but man its a lot of messing around just to use a computer.. right? but into 9.04 HUGE improvement!  other than my usb 2.0 devices not  working!04:30
RukusXanyone wanna help with that?04:30
RukusXdsnyder a speedtest does not reflect that04:30
RukusXdsnyders timing was 1000kb/sec roughly04:31
sarumy only concern with linux is game support :(04:31
a_stray_shotmaybe just a cheap enclosure?04:31
dpuppis there a way to use ubuntu to check a windows partition for errors?04:31
RukusXi am sure it is not the best one. But it used  to run faster04:31
dsnyderssaru, Pysol seems to work fine.04:32
saruwhat is Pysol?04:32
dsnyderssaru, a Python based collection of solitare card games.04:32
mike45094 hey guys, so here's what I'm used to doing, see if you can change my life,  whenever I have a dev envionrment , I open up 5 consoles,  I usually name them php/mysql/html/css etc,  whenver I go to edit a php file I suspend a file ( via contorl + z ) and then use jobs to check my open jobs,  then I resume using %x,  is there a better way I could be doing this with screen or something else...?04:32
RukusXTiming cached reads:     2 MB in  2.09 seconds = 981.18 kB/sec  Timing buffered disk reads:    4 MB in  4.06 seconds = 1007.92 kB/sec04:33
RukusXdsnyders rather04:33
RukusXdsnyders: but when i connect my usb 2.0 thumb drive i get usb 2.0 speeds!04:33
sarui meant computer games like World of Warcraft, or Call of Duty, Tomb Raider : Underworld04:34
RukusXsaru wine now has directx support and virtualbox now supports hardware accelleration. to what extend performance and compatability are i am not sure.04:35
kapilmike45094: you can certainly have 1 screen session with different activities in each screen window.04:35
mike45094kapil: could you explain to me how to do this04:35
damionlspci | grep -i -E wireless\|ethernet04:36
saruyeah i installed Wine last night and ran WoW from my windows partition and it ran but really slow...04:36
damionwhat is the vertical line and where is it on the keyboard?04:36
damionlspci | grep -i -E wireless\|ethernet04:36
saruso im guessing my settings for wine configuration are wrong.04:37
damionis that an i or an l?04:37
kapilstart screen with "screen". You will get a command prompt (after the splash message). there you type something like "screen vi first_file.txt". This will open first_file.txt in a new screen window and so on. you switch between screen windows with "Ctrl+a"04:37
dsnydersRukusX, I'm not sure then.04:37
damionlspci | grep -i -E wireless\|ethernet04:37
RukusXdsnyders:  ur not the only one04:37
damionis this an i or an l in that command? i can't tell?04:37
kapilsee "info screen" for the documentation (or "man screen"). Also remember "Ctrl-a ?" for help.04:37
damionbetween lspci and grep04:37
ctmjrmike45094: see if this helps you http://www.ubuntugeek.com/screen-manages-multiple-sessions-on-one-terminal.html04:38
Omlettedamion: It's the letter between h and j.04:38
a_stray_shotdamion: its a pipe, and it is shift+backslash usually04:38
mike45094kapil I'm going to give this a shot, actually the reason I asked this is because I used to use Ctyl-a a lot04:38
mike45094like a year ago04:38
mike45094and I forgot how to go about doing this methodology etc04:38
bastid_raZordamion: that is a pipe. above enter key on most keyboards04:38
damionthat...hmm ive never even noticed that.04:39
damionits called a pipe?04:39
kapilmike45094: you can define the command key to be something other than Ctrl-a.04:39
a_stray_shotyeah, and it works just like a real one, damion04:39
eTiger13how can i tell what apt upgraded on the last upgrade i ran?04:40
damionim trying to figure out how the omputer would interpret it....like a switch or something?04:40
mike45094how do you name a session?04:40
damionat least i know what it is now04:40
mike45094I thought you could name a screen session with -S ?04:40
mike45094not child sessions though?04:40
Solaris444I have a very strange issue. I have an NEC laptop, and when I press the key (US Keyboard) that has | and \ on it, it instead shows me < and >04:41
Solaris444Any idea how to fix this, anyone?04:41
mike45094for example I want to do `screen vi README.txt` and have the session be called either... ReadMe.txt or TXT while I'm flipping through my screen sessions04:41
kapilmike45094: you can name screen windows with "Ctrl-a A"04:41
mike45094that seems like a bit much04:42
mike45094is there any other way to do that like on execute04:42
mike45094I would like to write a script, that's why I'm asking04:42
dsnydersdamion, linux commands take input from something called standard input, and send their output to standard output.  The pipe routes the output of one program into the input of another.04:43
kapilor you can invoke new commands on the screen command line (C-a :). there you can give a command like "screen -t Readme.txt vi README.txt".04:44
mike45094-t eh?04:44
kapilscreen -t test sh04:45
webb82fanyone know of a good alternative to the gnome start menu04:45
kapilmike45094: the above seems to work in my current screen session.04:45
damionso in the example i put04:46
damionlspci | grep -i -E wireless\|ethernet04:46
damionwhere would that "output' end up?04:46
genii-arounddamion: On the screen04:46
samdhow do i run a program (command line) in the background?04:47
dsnydersdamion, Unless otherwise specified the keyboard is the input, and the screen is output04:47
linxehsamd: & or screen04:47
samdlinxeh-> & didnt worked as the program keeps sending output, ill try screen04:48
linxehsamd: its still in the background04:48
pete_whats the safest way to have the option to choose between xfce and fluxbux, fluxbox installed second04:48
damioncna anyone help me get wireless networks ungreyed.04:48
dsnydersdamion, you can also send the output to a file using >04:48
damion> then filename?04:48
dsnydersdamion, exactly.04:48
samdlinxeh-> if i did ./prog &,,, and i contrl-C it, is it still runing?04:49
linxehsamd: yes, because you ctrl-c the shell, not your program04:49
bastid_raZorsamd: program & disown04:49
damioni typed > example.txt04:49
linxehsamd: check ps -ef etc04:49
damionnothing happened04:49
samdlinxeh-> ahhhh nice , didnt knew that, thanks04:49
samdbastid_raZor-> ight, tanks04:49
dsnydersdamion, you can do stuff like ls | sort >example.txt and it will create a file called example.txt consisting of a sorted list of your directory.04:50
castillevHey, will my installation work fine if I remove the Ubuntu-desktop? I just want to uninstall the Open office stuff.04:50
samdlinxeh-> i see it under ps -ef, thanks04:51
castillevWithout removing gnome.04:51
samdlinxeh->  what happens if i logout?04:51
damionand where would that file end up? on my desktop?04:51
scatterpdsnyders, sorry ran in to some problems every time i try to copy my 4.3gb file it says its stalled so i tried pinging google while i did as a sort of keep alive and it gives a error on the ping "no buffer space available" im guessing its copying to fast is there some way i can fix that ?04:51
dsnydersdamion, cat wordlist|sort|uniq|wc would print a count of the unique words in the file.04:52
GLGok as a preface i have an nvidia card installed on my LP running the xorg config driver and i want to use two screens both as seperate x screens however when the driver tries to save to the xorg.config.backup to enable two x screens it cannot i tried rm on the old file and now it says i can't make a new one any ideas?04:52
samdbastid_raZor-> what does disown do?? makes it run even if i logout?04:52
damionmy wireless is working again04:52
linxehsamd: with a & process it will likely die; with screen it will carry on04:52
=== s is now known as Guest20509
linxehsamd: generally screen is a better solution04:52
dsnydersdamion, it would place the file in the directory that you ran the command from.04:52
samdlinxeh-> i see, ill go for screen then, thanks04:52
dsnydersscatterp, either that or the destination is out of space.04:53
bastid_raZorsamd: no, disowns it from the terminal window04:53
legend2440GLG: in terminal type  gksudo nvidia-settings.  then you can save settings04:53
scatterpdestination has tons of space remember i cant ping google when i stall...04:53
samdbastid_raZor-> alright thanks04:53
_Trinity_hey all04:53
scatterpdsnyders,  destination has tons of space remember i cant ping google when i stall...04:53
nanotube!hi | _Trinity_04:53
ubottu_Trinity_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines. Enjoy your stay!04:53
_Trinity_say what does ubuntu list pendrives under /dev/ as? I don't see a sd* listing04:54
hossamhello i am trying to backup my 1.5TB drive, i just dragged and dropped the directories into the new drive, will this copy over my files marked as hidden as well?04:54
nanotube_Trinity_: if they are mounted, you can see them easily with command "mount" - it will show the device names in /dev for you04:54
scatterpdsnyders, is there a way to dramaticly increase the buffer space or to make it go slower ?04:54
dsnyders_Trinity_, removable disks are usually mounted under /media automatically.04:54
saruUbuntu uses Xorg correct?04:55
dsnydersscatterp, If it's not that, I don't know what to suggest.04:55
nanotubesaru: if you're running the gui, then yes04:55
_Trinity_dsnyders: not mine04:56
scatterpdsnyders, how can i convert my file.tgz in to a split archive that windows could recombine ?04:56
saruok thanks, I need to look to make sure its running in OpenGL or not.04:56
solarisBoyanyway to change my intro music on 8.10 ?04:57
=== ecanto is now known as ecanto-afk
_Trinity_ls /media --> cdrom cdrom0 non of which are my pendrive04:57
nanotubesaru: run "glxinfo | grep rendering" if it shows "yes" then you're good04:57
GLGlegend2440: ok i saved it now i still can't apply the crt x screen04:57
nanotube_Trinity_: is the pen drive formatted?04:57
nanotube_Trinity_: does it show up in the output of 'mount' command?04:57
venky80does anyone else have this issue http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=622057#p62205704:57
_Trinity_sure is04:58
saruit says yes04:58
nanotubesaru: so that means you have 3d accel enabled...04:59
sarudo you need opengl to run Compiz?04:59
genii-aroundNo, composite04:59
sarui noticed when i ran Wine yesterday with World of Warcraft it ran really slow framerate wise and im trying to figure out why.04:59
nanotubesaru: well, you should look up what the optimal settings are for your video card and driver...04:59
ceacrohi folks05:00
ceacroI have a problem05:00

_Trinity_nanotube: what am I looking for there?05:00
ceacrowith my wire RJ 4505:00

_Trinity_I see my partitions and a few otehr things I can't make out05:01
ceacroit recognizes my 3GSM usb modem and wireless05:01
nanotube_Trinity_: pastebin your mount output05:01
nanotube_Trinity_: also, pastebin your output of "sudo fdisk -l" (will list all disks, even if they're not mounted)05:01
ceacrobut does not identify the wire ethernet conection05:01
ceacrowhy is wrong with the conection?05:02
dsnydersceacro, what is it connected to?05:02
GLGdoes any1 know why i can't apply my x screen settings i saved them to /etc/X11/ and toggled some other stuff and i can't add my second screen as another x screen05:03
ceacroI have a wire connection that ubuntu does not recognize.05:03
ceacroit is a atheros wire card05:03
wrapsterI have a 17'' syncmaster crt monitor.. and soon after I installed ubuntu on my machine..  i've noticed that the monitor has begun to flicker insanely... what could be the problem and how can i resolve it? its almost impossible to look at the screen05:03
ctmjrsolarisBoy: yes in system > preferences > sound > sounds you can change it but it has to be in .wav format and not to long maybe 10 seconds or so to work05:04
dsnydersceacro, does it show up if you issue an ifconfig command.05:04
thiebaudeGLC, you tried gksudo gedet /etc/X11/xorg.conf?05:04
mo0nykitI'm trying to resurrect an old PC (Celeron 733 MHz, 256MB RAM, 20GB HDD). But I cannot format my HDD with the ext3 filesystem. What could possibly be wrong?05:04
solarisBoycool .. i was there but it appears i dont get the option to change,, was wondering do i need like sudo privs?05:04
soreausaru: You need opengl.. specifically you need drivers supporting the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension enabled and working with hardware rendering05:04
ceacrobut I see a lot of codes05:04
Nemesis1911hey guys05:04
GLGwhat should i add to the xorg.conf?05:04
ceacroI tried with fconfig05:05
dsnydersmo0nykit, have you partitioned the disk as ext3?05:05
dsnydersceacro, ifconfig05:05
dr3mrohi where i can suggest an idea for ubuntu 10.405:05
ceacroit shows a lot of codes I am not able to understand05:05
ctmjrsolarisBoy: on the login sound you should be able to click it and edit it without sudo05:06
Nemesis1911I gotta problem I installed Windows 7 and now I lost my Ubuntu its still there.. but how do I get multi boot screen up ???? Help please05:06
mo0nykitdsnyders, yup, i had it partitioned already. My first attempt was with the Minimal CD. When I got to the "write partition changes to disk", partitioning crashes at around 33%05:06
solarisBoyok let me try again05:06

Nemesis1911kewl kelw.. I'm gonna check the link guys.. thx 100000000000000000005:07
^mNotIntelligentlightness, add virtual box repo and use apt-get05:07
solarisBoy_Trinity_: does 'sudo fdisk -l' show the drive?05:07
yinlongNemesis1911,do you have a live cd?05:08
mo0nykitdsnyders, yup, that's my main suspicion :( I even tried DamnSmallLinux, crashing at random points, throwing segmentation fault errors05:08
^mNotIntelligentlightness, can't you use apt-get05:08
nanotube_Trinity_: ok, so the mount output only shows your / and /home partitions (everything else is system cruft that's irrelevant to the present discussion). how about fdisk -l ?05:08
Nemesis1911yinlong.. have a gparted usb flash05:08
lightness^mNotIntelligent tried apt-get but didnt work: couldnt find it05:09

^mNotIntelligentlightness, seems you installed it manually, right?05:09
lightness^mNotIntelligent ok what is that?05:09
yinlongNemesis1911,so you can use the command "grub" as root05:09
solarisBoyceacro: whats your ethernet interface?05:09
lightness^mNotIntelligent right05:09
Nemesis1911i'm in WINDOWS05:09

^mNotIntelligentlightness, dpkg -r virtualbox-3 ...something like this prefix sudo if required05:10
ceacroit is a RJ45 wire with an Atheros fast Ethernet05:10
yinlongNemesis1911,you are in windows?well,so you have to reboot into your live cd05:10

wrapster^mNotIntelligent: too much as in the case of a drunken maniac!!!! trying to drive a car05:14
wrapsterits that bad05:14
nanotube_Trinity_: is the usb stick plugged in? are you plugging it in directly, or through a usb hub? also, as solarisBoy says, check your system log for any interesting messages when you plug in your stick.05:14
solarisBoy_Trinity_: unplug the drive run "tail -f /var/log/messages &" and plug it back in05:14
_Trinity_but there is a command I can't think of right now where something shows up a Kisngston and it's not ram05:14

^mNotIntelligentlightness, first get the complete pkg name useing this: dpkg -l | grep -i virtualbox05:21

yinlongNemesis1911,do you know the number of your ext3 partition is?05:28
ADmiralI get either a faint noise or a loud screeching one, but can't record properly.05:28
dsnydersscatterp, or you might try scp/putty and pull it from the windows end instead of pushing it from the linux end.05:28
scatterpdsnyders, i thought of that not sure how to do that....05:29
ctmjrsaru: that is not what you asked but try this egrep "Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers" /var/log/Xorg.0.log05:29

Dave0101nanotube: I guess I'm looking for best practice.  Is it to give g+rw on everything and make a new user that's a member of www-data?06:13
nanotubeDave0101: yea, in ubuntu apache runs as www-data user...06:13
ctmjrsaru: /etc/X11/xorg.conf06:13

BobrobynDoes anyone know how to uninstall cij for java, and install the real one?06:14
Dave0101nanotube: Good deal.  I'll make those changes.  Appreciate the help!06:14
mezquitaleADmiral, maybe someone in #alsa can help you out, you have to go there earlier though when the gurus are around06:15
linuxguy2009Anyone have experience with a Dell mini 10v and Jaunty or even Hardy for that matter? I'm trying to get the webcam mic to work. I go to /proc/asound/ I have the phone/mic jacks on the side show up as device "Intel" and within that folder there is pcm0c and pcm0p, c meaning capture device and p meaning playback device. Doesnt seem to list a second device for the webcam mic. This probably a kernel support issue?06:15
wrapsterctmjr: excellent it worked.. but i have a slight issue with the screen resolution.. now i have a resolution of 1027x768 earlier i was able to see a much higher resolution.. how may i get the same06:15
nanotubeDave0101: no prob :)06:16
nanotubeBobrobyn: the "real" java is package "sun-java6-jre" (or -jdk), so just install that one.06:16
ADmiralmezquitale, and they won't be angry with me for asking an Ubuntu related question, where Ubuntu uses PulseAudio? :) I don't even know how ALSA relates to PulseAudio, but I hope they won't turn me down for off-topic'ing or anything.06:16
mezquitalelinuxguy2009, ever since pulseaudio made its debut in jaunty configuring a mic is a pain.  I was never able to do it that's why Im trying karmic alpha release06:16
linuxguy2009mezquitale: You have a Mini or something simaler you have a mic issue with too?06:17
mezquitaleADmiral, the answer is simple.  Tell them youre using jaunty and are having serious issues.  You dont want to use pulseaudio, you want to use ALSA.  Tell them what you want to do and if someone is around they will guide you through the process06:17
guru_HI ALL06:17
ctmjrwrapster: you should have a program in the menu called nvidia xserver settings look in system > preferences06:18
Bobrobynnanotube, thanks.06:18
ADmiralmezquitale: Thank you very much, I'll try it either way, right now, even if the gurus might not be around.06:18
mezquitalelinuxguy2009, no, I have a Dell Laptop and the mic used to work fine with 8.10.  I wanted to try jaunty and now I realize the mistake I made, it's too late to fix it so I just move on06:18
sarudoes ubuntu set a default root passwod?06:18
nanotubeBobrobyn: np :)06:18
nanotube!root | saru06:18
ubottusaru: Do 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/RootSudo06:18
linuxguy2009mezquitale: Right. Im downloading 9.10 Alpha 6 to see if it works in that. Crossing my fingers. Plus I can help report bugs so thats a good thing too.06:19
Dave0101ubottu: Ha!06:19
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about Ha!06:19
nanotubeDave0101: ubottu is a bot :P06:20
Dave0101I see that now. :)06:20
wrapsterctmjr: yes i've opened it up06:20
legend2440saru: no if you want  root terminal type   sudo -i in  terminal.  if you are editing xorg.conf then type   gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf06:20
Dave0101I should have guess, that's clearly too witty for off-the-cuff!06:20
mezquitalelinuxguy2009, if youre going to download Alpha6 then you  might as well try ubuntustudio, that's what it's for and it's got plenty of already configured applications06:20

mezquitaleCasper1, what error are you getting??  are you using the network applet?06:21
Dave0101Right.  What do they call it... a turing test?06:21

saruhow do i go about restarting my X without logging off just Ctrl Alt Backspace?06:23
legend2440saru: you may want to backup old  xorg.conf first in case anything goes wrong06:23
wrapsterctmjr: yes i changed that.. but i noticed that if i go any higher than 1024x768 it starts to flicker again.06:23
wrapsterbut at that resolution its perfect06:23
ramkumar_hi budd06:23
sarulegend2440, i did :)06:23
saruis it the same as other distro's to restart it, ctrl alt backspace?06:23
ctmjrwrapster: can you change the refresh rate make it higher?06:23
legend2440!dontzap | saru06:24
ubottusaru: 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.06:24
mezquitaleCasper1, you might want to check if the wireless is actually on.  Type "iwconfig" and you should see a little more detail on the configuration06:24
nanotubesaru: i recall there being some talk about disabling ctl-alt-bksp... try it, if it doesn't work, just ctl-alt-f2 to a vty, and run "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart"06:24
ramkumar_how i lock the folders in ubuntu?06:24
legend2440saru: in jaunty  ctrl alt backspace has been disabled06:24
Casper1says no wireless conections06:24
mezquitaleCasper1, are you on the wireless router now and with your laptop in front of you?06:24
sarulegend2440, so how do you normally restart your X manager?06:25
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about zap06:25
Casper1no im using my modem right now06:25

guru_Yes MAMOOLI i can help u plz06:28
mamooliwhy after sudo apt-get install apache2 when i type localhost i encounter not found page?06:28
mezquitaleCasper1, it's going to be a little difficult diagnosing the problem when you dont have the actual devices in front of you.  This is what I suggest you do.  1.  Configure your router temporarily with  no security.  2. configure your wireless NIC in your laptop to use the wireless conection from your router. 3.  If it works then add encryption to your router and configure your nic in your laptop and see if youre able to connect06:29
nanotubelegend2440: hm, i don't think so either...06:29
n8tusermamooli-> i dont think localhost is a command06:29
nanotuben8tuser: hmm interesting. well... at least they didn't disable both of them. :)06:29
guru_sorry mamoli am not got at that06:29
nanotubemamooli: you mean, you open a browser and navigate to "localhost", right?06:29

LucidGuyLooking for the most polished eye Candy Linux distro out there.  From the looks of it Im obviuntously looking for a distro packaged with KDE.  Currently its a tie between LinuxMint KDE and Kubuntu.  Any suggestions?06:42
administrator_A + tranining program it has come with .exe so how i install it on ubuntu06:42
booleancatLucidGuy: It's a bit offtopic for #ubuntu, but I've heard that opensuse is where most of the KDE4 development occurs. Try that06:43
mamoolin8tuser: u think i have to reinstall ubuntu?06:43
n8tusermamooli go ahead, so you can learn06:43
trakcyiahow can I make Ubuntu load to System RAM, and boot from its system RAM copy at boot?06:44
n8tusertrakcyia-> where did you learn about that?06:45
trakcyiawell, some liveCD's do it to give the user cdrom use06:45
trakcyiai want it for different reasons06:45
Ben64trakcyia: do you realize that system ram gets erased every time you turn the computer off?06:45
trakcyiayes thats why i want it06:45
booleancattrakcyia: What you're doing is pretty complicated, but it would probably be possible with ramfs06:45
trakcyiai restore my backup three times a week06:45
trakcyiai would do it more times per week if i wasnt so lazy to boot the rescue cd06:46
trakcyiaif it could happen automagically, that would be heaven06:46
trakcyianot to mention, fast06:46
n8tusertrakcyia-> reread the tutorial where you learned it from, im sure it has more details06:46
trakcyian8tuser there was no howto, i just know the rescue cd i use, it loads itself to system RAM, then boots06:46
Ben64trakcyia: having memory erased won't help, the feds can still get you06:46
trakcyiaben64, its about speed, and clutter06:47
n8tusertrakcyia-> your clue would be ramfs, so look for a tutorial on this06:47
trakcyian8tuser will do06:47
legend2440trakcyia: do you use partimage or something else?06:48
trakcyiaclonezilla, because partimage does not work with my ACHI drive06:48

mark92691Any support for middle button of three-button mouse?06:49
Ben64mark92691: should "just work"06:50
mark92691Mouse middle button doesn't work at all on my system.  Pressing it has no effect.06:50
genii-aroundFor whoever was asking about how to dial-in to their ubuntu box and then use it's internet connection, may want to look at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=150339  but instead of the modifications to /etc/inittab, make the changes suggested for that file into one of the tty# entries in /etc/event.d06:50
Ben64well what situation are you using it in06:50
Ben64in firefox, should open a link in a new tab06:50
Ben64in terminal, should paste06:51
mark92691With Firefox, trying to scroll (as it does in Windoze).06:51
Ben64middle button scroll? or is it a wheel?06:51
legend2440trakcyia: ok i asked because i have a script that runs partimage by selecting it from the grub menu list at boot. no need to load rescue cd06:51
mark92691It's a button; an old three-button mouse.06:51
Ben64mark92691: try clicking a link in firefox with it06:51
JesseWWhat does the "Upstream version" column mean in launchpad, e.g. on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt ?06:52
JesseW(let me know if there is somewhere else I should ask this)06:52
travellermark92691, make sure you have autoscrolling enabled in firefox, you can find it in Edit > Preferences > Advanced06:52
trakcyialegend2440 it should be modifiable, the entire clonezilla operation can be run in a single line06:52
Ben64so... the middle button works, you just want it to bring up that scrolly thing06:52
trakcyialegend2440 i plan on doing something with puppy similar to that06:52
mark92691Fixed.  Thank you.06:53
mark92691I was looking for an Ubuntu setting; didn't realize I needed a Firefox setting.  :)06:53
mark92691Thanks to both of you.06:53
trakcyiahere someone already had the idea im looking at, but even better06:54
trakcyiainstead of waiting for files to be loaded, it loads them to ram, but not stuff in your /home directory.06:54
trakcyiaSo using the ram to cache entire programs, and the entire OS, and only using the harddisk to save stuff back onto when they change. Its a good idea.06:54
trakcyiabest of both worlds it seems, assuming there is available ram space06:54

Casper1usually there are 2 not including my router08:43
ManDayGnea, it's NOT working!08:44
ManDaybecause the error is NOT send to stderr!08:44
Casper1iolion: i had the same problem, but that worked for me. just search the forums for hours like i did. GL!08:44
ManDayI tried every possible variation08:44
GneaManDay: what's the command?08:44
=== loki_ is now known as loki_666
geirhaManDay: The order is important. If 2>&1 is before >file.log, then stderr will be sent to the terminal08:44
mneptokCasper1: pastebin the output of "ifconfig"08:44
Casper1ok hold on08:44
mn3m0n1csup b0t08:44
ManDayok, geirha what would be the syntax for piping it into less instead of redirecting into file then?08:45
GneaManDay: well, the way I just showed you should put it all to the logfile08:45
DaraelDoes anyone know why compiz would be segfaulting?  It seems to be something to do with having firefox open.08:45
GneaManDay: then you can less the file.log08:45
iolioncasper: hmm08:45
ManDayi want to pipe it to less Gnea08:45
geirhaManDay: ./a.out 2>&1 | less08:45
ManDaygeirha, i tried that, it does NOT redirect the error!08:45
geirhaManDay: Try this then: { ./a.out; } 2>&1 | less08:46
mneptokCasper1: is this a laptop or desktop?08:46
Casper1iolion: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=115450208:46
=== [NikO] is now known as niko
Casper1mneptok: laptop08:46
ManDaygeirha, that doesn't work either08:46
mneptokCasper1: is the a function-key combo to enable or disable wireless? or a hardware switch?08:46
geirhaManDay: Hm. Then glibc is writing directly to the terminal, not via the shell.08:47
ManDaygeirha, I'm telling you, the error is send to the tty directly - there is no way of redirecting it08:47
GneaManDay: can you get the output to the logfile using the way I showed you initially?08:47
ManDayThat's what I've been saying08:47
ManDayno Gnea i cannot08:47
Casper1mneptok: please explain, im not sure i understand what your asking08:47
Gneathat's weird, because that method ought to do it08:47
ManDayIs that a ubuntu annoyance of std-linux?08:47
znhIs it possible to increase the DPI of my screen?08:47
ManDayGnea, as geirha said - the error is not send to stderr08:47
mneptokCasper1: look at the keyboard. is there a way to turn wireless on and off using the keyboard?08:48
ManDay*Whether that is ubuntu specific or the same on most distros08:48
Casper1oh haha i checked that already yes it is on08:48
iolionhow do I check my my ram?08:48
GneaManDay: well, you should be using /bin/bash, so that's not ubuntu-specific08:48
tulsi1Hi there. Could someone please help me get the inbuilt mic working? I'm trying to use sound recorder.. and can't get any audio recorded. THe inbuilt mic does work as I have used it in windows. I'm a bit confused by the volume control as there seems to be 5 devices in the drop down.. and I'm not sure where to start.08:48
znhiolion: System. Administration and then System Monitor08:49
ManDaySo, Gnea geirha any idea how to fix it?08:49
=== kaikai is now known as Ulrika`
Casper1tulsi1: alsamixer -Dhw      in the terminal and turn mic volume up08:49
iolionis there a network bandwidth monitor?08:49
geirhaManDay: Well, when you get a message from glibc, your program is doing something terribly wrong. The best would be to fix the program.08:49
DaraelCan anyone think of a reason for compiz to segfault repeatedly?  It only seems to happen with Firefox open.08:50
mneptokCasper1: try "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up"08:50
ManDaygeirha, that's not my problem.08:50
GneaManDay: not really, 2>&1 outputs stderr to stdout, which in turn is outputted to the logfile. if it's not working that way, then something is wrong with your shell.08:50
Casper1mneptok: no output08:50
mneptokCasper1: see if you can see the SSID now08:50
znhhow can I configure my desktop effects?08:50
indusiolion: hello08:50
geirhaGnea: glibc is apparently writing directly to the terminal08:51
ManDayGnea, why would you blame the shell? Does it work for you?08:51
GneaManDay: or, something is wrong with your program. perhaps it's not including the correct header files.08:51
Casper1mneptok: still not visible08:51
indusiolion: network bandwidth monitor is also available from system monitor like znh said08:51
mneptokCasper1: pastebin the output of "ifconfig"08:51
ManDayGnea, my program? My program is a one-liner. THe problem is always the same. glibc always does that - for numerous programs08:51
GneaManDay: did you include stdio.h?08:51
ManDayGnea, seriously, why would I ?08:52
GneaManDay: http://www.cs.bu.edu/teaching/c/file-io/intro/08:52
ManDayIt's not in the scope of my program to make glibc work properly08:52
GneaManDay: but it's in the scope of your program to work correctly.08:52
ManDayIt's a c++ program08:52
GneaI don't care08:52
ManDayGnea, my program is meant to throw this error08:52
Gnea#include <stdio.h>08:52
ManDayas you say08:52
geirhaGnea, ManDay: http://pastebin.com/f2ef2b33f this reproduces it08:52
Casper1mneptok: http://pastebin.com/d71de786708:53
Gneait doesn't include stdio.h08:53
ManDayGnea, should including <iostream> cut it?08:53
indusisnt this programming talk ?08:53
ManDayindus, not really08:53
mneptokCasper1: you're wireless card is now active08:53
geirhaManDay: The only way I know to handle output going directly to terminal, is expect08:54
mneptokCasper1: look again in NetworkManager08:54
geirhaManDay: I'm not proficient enough with expect to help you though, so you'll have to google or try #expect or #tcl (if they exist)08:54
ManDaygeirha, Gnea i included <stdio.h> but still the error is send to the terminal08:54
Casper1menptok: nothing still, some1 else sugested i conect directly to the router? should i do so08:54
ManDayi dont see why my program would be responsible for that08:55
ManDayGnea, have you tried reproducing it? geirha what is your result?08:55
Casper1mneptok: im curently conected via modem08:55
mneptokCasper1: well, that will rule out wireless problems08:55
geirhaManDay: The easy fix is to set the variable to NULL right after doing a free. free(NULL) is safe.08:55
tasslehoffI have mounted a share using smbfs. Windows users mounting the same share can see the folders I create, but not the files. Que???08:55
ManDaygeirha, it's not about my program. I wrote this program to throw the error in order to fix the issue with glibc.08:55
GneaManDay: I stand corrected - that's really weird. oh well, yeah, you'll need to ask in a programming channel, like #c++08:55
Casper1mneptok: so its my card then?08:56
mneptokCasper1: no08:56
ManDayGnea, I've already discussed this there. They agree that it's a linux issue08:56
Casper1mneptok: then what is the problem08:56
mneptokCasper1: look at the 2 pastebin outputs you sent. after you manually ran "sudo ifconfig wlan0 up" the card started working.08:56
GneaManDay: k, well we just support Ubuntu in a rather user-friendly, non-lowlevel environment here. perhaps #ubuntu-devel08:56
ManDayOk I'll try thanks08:57
Gneagood luck08:57
mneptokCasper1: i suspect your router is either not broadcasting the SSID, is doing MAC filtering, or somesuch.08:57
Casper1mneptok: What would i need to do to fix that?08:57
qwe_hello. What can I do with a package I can't remove? In my case selinux. Google doesn't offer any solution.08:57
mneptokCasper1: examine the WAP's configuration so you know for sure what it is doing, and what you might expect from it08:58
Casper1mneptok: where would i examine that?08:58
mneptokCasper1: uhhhhh .... in the WAP's adfmin interface?08:59
tulsi1Casper1: turning up the mic volume didn't help. Turning it too high gave that feedback sound.. so it's sort of halfway. But I still don't hear anything when trying to record in sound recorder08:59
Casper1tulsi1: Mine is about halfway and records what program are you using to record with?09:00
Casper1mneptok: Im sorry I dont know where that is I'm new to linux09:01
tulsi1Casper1: sound recorder. default app in ubuntu09:01
Casper1tulsi1: try audacity09:01
sandmanIs Ubuntu profitable yet? Or rather, is Ubuntu slowly dying?09:02
sandmanHonest question, not looking to flame. Just considering using it at a particular client location, and this is a major issue for them.09:02
jimbeam12what a good firewall..09:03
sandmanThey don't want to "convert" over to Ubuntu GNU/Linux if it's going to end up like Mandrake.09:03
Casper1could some1 please tell me where the WAP admin interface is please?09:03
GneaCasper1: WAP admin?09:03

GneaCasper1: mneptok has been saying a lot of misleading things lately09:05
Casper1Gnea: Well thats interesting. You wouldnt be able to help me with my wireless conection would you?09:05
GneaCasper1: but I think he means your Wireless Access Point configuration website, which you should already know how to configure09:05
cheaterCasper1: what's wrong with your wireless connection?09:05
Casper1I'm not sure, thats what im trying to figure out lol09:06
cheaterwhat are you trying to connect with what?09:06
Casper1Gnea: Is that the http://ip address loggin screen?09:06
GneaCasper1: uh, yeah - whatever your local ip is on the wireless router device that you used to login to to set it up09:07
Casper1cheater: i just bought a router and yesterday i conected but no pages would load, and now it doesnt detect it09:07
mneptokGnea: excuse me?09:07

Rods_TigerThere's something wrong with adding something to 'startup applications' - if I click 'add a startup program' and 'browse' it doesn't show any programs at all - instead it incorrectly displays a file selector dialogue box with all my documents in it. This is wrong.09:08
cheaterdid it work Casper1?09:08
mneptokCasper1: your wireless router. check and make sure that it is broadcasting the SSID. your wireless card is active, based upon the output of ifconfig.09:08
Casper1cheater: nope, which is why I'm still on the modem lol09:08
cheaterCasper1: connect it via the wire and call customer support.09:09
Casper1mneptok: i can't connect to the router. my browser says the connection failed09:09
cheaterCasper1: if it won't work, then it's broken.09:09
mneptokCasper1: connect via Ethernet cable, as cheater suggested09:09
Casper1cheater: i called customer support and they want to charge me $70 to talk to them09:09
Casper1I will try again though.09:09
cheaterreturn it to the shop and get a different one09:09

Armageddonis there any package to customize a distribution based on Ubuntu or wtvr ?09:11
GneaCasper1: yes, but a netgear what? it should have a sticker on it that shows the model #09:12
mneptokGnea: when i'm trying to help someone, please do not cast apsersions on my advice.09:12
cheaterCasper1: just for that, i'd bring it back and get a different brand.09:13
Gneamneptok: then please, don't say things to people who are looking for serious help like that.09:13
cheaterCasper1: that's unacceptable..09:13
mneptokGnea: both of us were joking. it was clear i was not being serious. it was NOT clear you were being sarcastic.09:13

Gneayou can NOT buy a brand new router at radio shack and NOT have a manual with it. simply impossible.09:23
GneaCasper1: then re-check the box, maybe it slid behind a piece of something09:23

Gnea!openvpn | d_09:42
ubottud_: OpenVPN is a vpn technology in Ubuntu, sudo apt-get install openvpn and then see http://openvpn.net/ and see the documentation "HOWTO" noting you have already installed it. ;-) It rocks!09:42
IledenHi! I need to change my the device name (/dev/mmcblk0) of my SD card, as a workaround to a bug to get it recognized by LVM. I was instructed on a forum to use "udev" or "types = ["mmc",16]". I did some research on udev, and it seems I'm beyond my depth there. The second possibility I have no idea about, and "types" is quite hard to do a google search on. Could someone here give any pointers?09:42
mneptokd_: but such devices are much easier for new IPSec users to get up and running than are Linux boxen09:42
comicinkerSharpRain: I don't know the english word. maybe you should ccsm, too. I meant the theme selector.09:42
U8untuTechie  i was on that site..i dont understand nothin` :d09:42
TechieU8untu- do i have permission to PM you?09:43
mneptokd_: and Gnea does not recommend openvpn lightly. it is also a good solution.09:43
RajecGuys I am looking for some files filter. I have several files with could belongs to two categories. What I want to do is be able to see only files from one category and then swith to view with files from second category. I could do it for example by put same files to two different folders(folder = category). It something like gmail and labels for mails09:43
U8untuyes Techie09:43
comicinkerSharpRain: as soon as you tick enable or disable desktop effects your settings are lost09:43
mneptokd_: examine all your options, and really have an undersyanding of how VPNs work before you buy or build out anything.09:43
Gnead_: I agree with mneptok, if you don't understand how VPNs work, then you should do some serious research beforehand.09:44
d_mneptok: gnea, I am trying to do the research but I am only finding partial or incomplete articles... or out of date.09:45

Casper1Gnea: I hear ya. Your sugestion of conecting to the modem through the router worked09:46
Casper1Gnea: But I believe there is something wrong with the router09:46
GneaCasper1: well, if you have an IP now, then you know the gateway IP that belongs to the router, so you can login to examine and fix it09:47

nikolajbut, if i open the ubuntu volume control i have all these sound cards10:49
ActionParsnipMyrtti: tell me about it. I have that now with work.10:49
indusnikolaj: what sound card do you use10:49
ActionParsnipindus: bet its some creative thing10:50
induslol yeah10:50
comfnumbevil, techie: awesome, thanks!10:50
ActionParsnipnikolaj: sudo lshw -C sound | grep product      will tell you10:51
nikolajIntel ICH6 (Alsa Mixer), SigmaTel STAC9750,51 (OSS Mixer), Playback: Intel ICH6 - Intel ICH6 (PulseAudio Mixer), Capture: Monitor of Intel ICH6 - Intel ICH6 (PulseAudio Mixer), Capture: Intel ICH6 - Intel ICH6 (PulseAudio Mixer)10:52
nikolajsorry on sec10:52
nikolajopens terminal10:52
maxagazcomicinker, there's nothing in .gvfs10:52
nikolaj product: 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller10:52
nikolajalthough when i had windows install on this laptop, SigmaTel rings a bell10:53
nikolajbasically all i want to do is record whatever would be coming out of my speakers10:54
nikolajbut without using a mic10:54
indusnikolaj: its the same soundcard only diff outputs or some strange way of sound channel identification by the system10:54
indusnikolaj: if u see the options, it lists playback and record both, use the ones which say mic10:55
nikolajso if i found a sample on youtube of someone talking i could just open audacity in windows and setup it up to record what was playing at the time10:55
indusnikolaj: its clearly called capture10:55
nikolajsorry ok one sec10:55
indusnikolaj: the last 2 devices10:55
indusnikolaj: try second last 1 then the last10:55
nikolajright the last 2 devices of the last list i gave you are from the volume control menu in ubuntu10:56
nikolajnot in audacity10:56
nikolajthey don't show up as capture in audacity10:56
nikolajalthough there is another menu once you select playback and input options which appears based on what you chose there, and "Capture:0" is an option10:57
nikolajis it easier if i open a new window to chat in10:57
nikolajthis is a little hard to explain at points10:57
munif i want to upgrade from hardy to 9.04, what is the best way to do it without reinstalling everything at the end?10:58
erUSULmun: 8.04 --> 8.10 --> 9.0410:59
erUSUL!upgrade | mun10:59
ubottumun: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading10:59
nikolajindus ?10:59
munerUSUL, but is upgrading reliable?10:59
indusnikolaj: stay in here,its better11:00
erUSULmun: it should be never had mayor problems myself11:00
indusnikolaj: so what does audacity show you as devices?11:00
munerUSUL, good to know. thanks11:00
erUSULmun: i've only installed ubuntu twice in 5 years11:00
nikolajwell the recording devices were the very first list i gave you11:00
induserUSUL: hmm interesting, i have never installed windows even once :)11:00
indusnikolaj: did you actually try recording with them?11:01
erUSULindus: touchè :)11:01
nikolajthe second list where the soundcards i could choose from in the volume control menu which you can open from the volume icon in the system tray area11:01
nikolajyes i have11:01
induserUSUL: i am sure its more difficult than ubuntu11:01
nikolajit just either is really crackly even after setting the levels; doesn't record at all as if something is preventing it, or doesn't even play back11:02
nikolajbut it has never been able to record for more than 1-6 seconds11:02
indusnikolaj:which vresion of ubuntu?11:02
nikolajand usually when it does that it's nearly like white noise11:02
maxagazis there a command line to know the codec and the container of an audio file ?11:03
induscan u believe it, i recorded an entire song from online when it played , using sound recorder and it sounds super, like in stereo :)11:03
erUSULmaxagaz: use «file» the command11:03
nikolajsound recorder?11:03
nikolajis that already installed?11:03
indusfor the first time ever, this was on karmic , till now it was nothing but crackling11:03
indusnikolaj: of course, its installed default and you can record sounds11:04
nikolajare you using karmic?11:04
indusnikolaj: i just pointed the  mic at the speakers and recorded a song11:04
indusnikolaj: yeah11:04
nikolajor sorry i see where it is11:04
indusnikolaj: try that, audacity is more for editing sounds etc11:04
nikolajyea i need to edit as well11:04
nikolajeventually i will use these sounds in ableton11:05
indusnikolaj: ok check for device from sound recorder maybe, then use in audacity?11:05
nikolajso if i can just do the loose editing at source before i export it as an mp3 that's soemtiems easier11:05
nikolaji just tried to record with soun d recorder11:05
nikolajcrackly as hell11:05
TxHawksI was wondering if anyone could help me with an ssh problem11:05
indusnikolaj: i know, but with karmic iam getting crystal clear audio11:06
indusi have no idea why11:06
TxHawksI ssh to a debian server11:06
indusi thought sound recorder was useless until now11:06
nikolaji can't use a mic because it picks up other sounds as well which is bad11:06
TxHawksand unicode char show up as gibberish11:06
nikolajwhen i am using it in songs n stuff11:06
indusit didnt actually in my case11:06
TxHawkslocale is set up correctly on both my machine and the server11:06
indusstrange, i stay by the road side too11:06
indusnikolaj: just keep mic near speakers11:07
nikolajlol i know what you mean, but when you come to edit it, and put it through a spectrum analyzer it picks up to many high end peaks11:07
nikolajand there is sometimes an brush of white sound in the back ground11:07
IpSe_DiXiTstupid question, how do i change the background of the inside view of a folder? I explain myself: u no it comes with light blue and white stripes one for each file if u put the view on "list"? how do i make it all white instead? tried "edit > background and emblems" here it says "drag a pattern tile to an object to change it" but after doing it, even after pressing the "reload" button, nothing changes! where am I wrong? thanks11:08
nikolajand i need to keep the frequency ranges balanced and when you record through mics you fill up frequency areas you usually wouldn't if you recorded directly from the source11:08
nikolajwhen was karmic released then?11:08
Myrttiwas? it isn't11:09
Myrtti!karmic | nikolaj11:09
ubottunikolaj: Karmic Koala is the codename for Ubuntu 9.10, due October 29th, 2009 - Karmic WILL break - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+111:09

IpSe_DiXiTstupid question, how do i change the background of the inside view of a folder? I explain myself: u no it comes with light blue and white stripes one for each file if u put the view on "list"? how do i make it all white instead? tried "edit > background and emblems" here it says "drag a pattern tile to an object to change it" but after doing it, even after pressing the "reload" button, nothing changes! where am I wrong? thanks11:13
nikolajand so i did a bad install11:13
indusnikolaj: bad install?11:13
nikolaji have a 90gb hdd11:13
nikolaji used 80 for the install11:13
nikolajso wasted 10gb11:13
nikolajwell 7 actually becase 3gb was a partition of something from dell i wanted to keep11:13
indusnikolaj: hmm you could resize the partitions11:14
nikolajand also i didn't partition properly for the install11:14
nikolajso there is only one partition i think11:14
nikolajand a "swap area"11:14
nikolajno idea11:14
nikolaji am on a steep learning curve11:14
nikolajwhat a good partition prog in linux?11:14
indusnikolaj: its inbuilt called gparted11:14
indusnikolaj: when you install from live cd its there11:15
nikolajhmm how do i find/ start that11:15
nikolajyea i know that one11:15
nikolajthat's what iw as about to ask for11:15
nikolajgparted then11:15
indusnikolaj: ya so boot from live cd and under system>admin>partition editor11:15
nikolajdo i just type that in terminal and it starts?11:15
* indus wonders what a terminal is :)11:16
indusnikolaj: ya can be run from terminal too sure11:16
indusnikolaj: make sure you have backups before you resize, its scary if gone wrong11:16
indusbrb i go for some tea11:17
nikolajhad to apt-get gparted11:17
nikolajooh good idea11:17
nikolajme too11:17

ActionParsnip!sound | hiend11:26
ubottuhiend: If 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 !MP311:26
