demonsporkmount.ntfs-3g ranomly spikes to 30-50% CPU usage and stays there until I reboot. I only have one partition currently mounted using ntfs-3g, and it keeps using that much CPU even after I unmount the partition.00:00

ascheelQuestion about a volume hotkey.  Right now my volume hotkeys (Fn + F11/F12) control the 'HDA Intel Capture'.  How do I change it so it controls the Alsa mixer instead?  Does anybody have an idea?00:01
reya276joaopinto: nah dude this is a microphone man, not something crazy plus my souncard works great and that jack is attached to the soundcard00:01

BlackbirdOh...oh dear. Anyway. I'm trying to install Ubuntu onto an external HD under FireWire 800.00:01
twrightGSherman: that is a general trouble shooting guide, if you just follow it it should help (you do not need to understand exactly what it is doing)00:02
stephan22i installed packe vtun, isnt this tun/tap ?00:02
GShermanthank you. i will attempt it00:02
BlackbirdOnly way to get it to access said HD under the installer is either "Manual partition specification" or dual boot, for some reason,a nd it is also going at an incredibly slow speed.00:02
twrightGSherman: as I said this is not normal - in most cases the installer should just work00:02

dellyreya276: what is set to 0 then?00:04
darkedge_Can someone answer my question?00:04
twrightGeronimo: there is an option for it in powermanagment00:04
reya276delly: there is nothing set to zero00:04
dellyreya276: what is set to 1 then?00:05
BlackbirdUh. Forgive me, I'm a bit of a noob even with the filesystem. What's a recommendable mount point?00:05

rkviraniHey all, Im looking for a _simple_ .pls player for streaming mp3s, I dont want visualization I just want to load a .pls file and hear it and have some simple buttons (like iTunes Mini Mode).  XMMS2 doesnt work anymore in ubuntu it keeps asking for a server etc... its not like the old winamp clone, what should I do?00:05
BlackbirdI...do not get that option.00:05
Geronimoit says 'blank screen'/suspend/shutdown/hibernate/do nothing.00:06
dellyBlackbird: what are you using, and what are you doing? :P00:06
Geronimoblank screen does not lock the screen.00:06
BlackbirdInstalling Ubuntu from the CD00:06
BlackbirdAnd trying to install onto an external HD00:06
BlackbirdOnly way to do a standalone is by manually creating a new EXT3 parition00:06
RedChopsrkvirani: Anything wrong with VLC?00:06
twrightGeronimo: in that case you need to tell it to sleep at the same time (it will save power anyway) - if you really want this then submit a bug and ask for it00:06
reya276delly: I literally have a bunch of what it looks like a graph with master, headphone, pcm, front, surround, center, LFE, side00:06
rkviraniooh I could try that00:06
BlackbirdSo it gives me: /, /boot, /home, /tmp, /usr, /var, /srv, /opt and /usr/local00:07
BlackbirdWhich is recommendable, is what I'm asking?00:07
dellyBlackbird: create a / on 5-12 gb and a /home with the rest. Also a swap must be made with amount equal to your ram(if you want to be able to hibirnate)00:07
rkvirani69 megs!00:07
reya276delly: there are no text lines, when I typed in alsamixer I got literally a mixer00:07
rkviraniIts almost as bad as itunes00:07
BlackbirdI...can't really do that. It doesn't permit me anything less than 91 GB.00:07
dellyreya276: it is indeed a mizer :00:08
BlackbirdI haven't the slightest clue why.00:08
dellyreya276: try to go to the far right using the direction keys on the keyboard00:08

rkviraniRedChops, might be super bloated but it works!00:08
dellyreya276: i had to set IEC958 to 1 to get my plugged in Mic to behave like i wanted it to00:09
BlackbirdSo, 2 GB swap file, 5 or so GB on /, and however much I want in /home.00:09
dellyBlackbird: that would indeed do the trick00:09
RedChopsrkvirani: Yeah, it's just bloated because it comes with support for about every codec out there ha00:09
reya276delly: ok how do I set that to one00:09
Blackbirddelly: Bad, then. Because I cannot do that.00:10
BlackbirdIt really does not allow me to input less than 91754 MB as partition size.00:10
dellyreya276: you just use the direction keys on the keyboard and up and down is adjusting the volum. Set anything that got either some strange names or the word "in" or "mic" in them to high values00:11
dellyBlackbird: 9.10 installation?00:11
twrightBlackbird: you might want to create the partitions in gparted first then just select them to install to00:12
BlackbirdThat'd be a good idea.00:12
stephan22is there a way to get the configuration of my actual kernel and just add the tun/tap module?00:12
reya276delly: that is not working for IEC958, but it work for all others00:12
BlackbirdLet me see if I didn't accidentally reformat the whole disk00:12
BlackbirdI have some...really valuable savefiles there.00:12
rkviraniRedChops, thanks, I have used VLC on windows and OSX but I forgot about linux :D00:12

dellyBlackbird: was that in any file system or just unformated space?00:14
BlackbirdFormatted space.00:14
reya276delly: yes it seems like, thanks. But this should have been enabled by default. Not complaining I'm just saying is just common sense00:14
BlackbirdSo you want me to make an ext3 partition taking up whatever I want, and then make the smaller bits you mentioned.00:14
BlackbirdAlright, I'll get gparted.00:14
dellyBlackbird: ok, then "shrink" the partition that is formated to a reasonable bit(you should kind of have the option).00:15
dellyreya276: well, welcome to the club00:15
rkviraniTypically how good are admins with LPIC-2?00:15
BlackbirdI hope I can shrink an NTFS partition. If not this is rather awkward.00:15
reya276delly: lol, I guess we can forget about mass adoption with issues like these. Thanks I appreciate it.00:16
dellyBlackbird: did you have a slider when you could install?00:16
=== carpediem1 is now known as carpediem
twrightBlackbird: if it is an option I suggest you use ext400:16

DarkedgeWhere's the stnaptics package manager?00:26
BlackbirdOkay, I'm at GParted, and...it would seem I cannot resize the partition.00:26
scuniziBlackbird: you might need to unmount it first00:26
BlackbirdOh, just one thing. I'm running a macbookpro, and as such I have no right-click. Is there any way to do that by a key combination?00:27
DarkedgeWho's seen goog11e today?00:27

Blackbird...Unable to unmount.00:28
GodfatherofEiredelly, I'm not sure if its fstab or not though00:29
scuniziBlackbird: I'm confused.. you have a macbookpro with ntfs on it?00:29
dellyGodfatherofEire: then what is the problem??00:29
GodfatherofEireAll I know is that Ubuntu isnt booting with the default kernel and I get brought to an initramfs prompt00:29
Blackbirdscunizi: I dualboot so I can actually get some games running, put NTFS on an external HD00:29
bastidrazordelly: you can use pastebinit to paste the file.. pastebinit /etc/fstab00:29
BlackbirdThe internal is, obv., HFS+. Point its, it won't let me unmount it.00:30
dellybastidrazor: i am addicted to pilelining and unneeed complex comman ds00:30
Blackbird"Error org.freedesktop.Hal.Device.InterfaceLocked00:30
dellyBlackbird: unplug the HD?00:30
GodfatherofEireAnd GNUsound is also crashing the system every time I try to run it.00:31
Blackbird...Isn't that pointless?00:31
scunizidelly: then it would be hard to resize the partitions on it.00:31
BlackbirdYeah, exactly.00:31
dellyBlackbird: Well, what about if we say "for the kicks of it"? :P00:31
dellyscunizi: i thought he was going to format the HD inside the computer?00:32
DarkedgeIs there something like kdev. but designed for GNOME?00:32
BlackbirdAn external one through FireWire800. I expect switching to USB will change absolutely nothing.00:32
sdlwofhttp://pastebin.com/m7604fa93  that's unplugging it and back in on 3 different usb ports.00:32
BlackbirdI...only have one FireWire port, but I can certainly switch formats and see if that does anything.00:33
dellyBlackbird: ok, so you are going to install Ubuntu on the external HD?00:33
dellythen DON'T remove it :P00:33
BlackbirdThe internal one is a clusterfuck currently, don't want to bother with that.00:33
scuniziBlackbird: this is a tough one.. once you unmount an external drive the system doesn't see it any more, I think,  because of the way the subsystem mounts and unmounts external devices..00:34
pythagBlackbird: did you umount the mount point or the device....it usually works better to use umount /dev/"your device"00:34
dellyBlackbird: when the installer gets to where it can be slided and just auto install.... slide it so ubuntu gets the amount of space you want it to have :P00:34
scuniziBlackbird: perhaps a way around it would be to remove the drive and connect it internally.. but that would also be problemmatic with a laptop00:35
Blackbird...Yes, but first I need to create an EXT3 partition, delly.00:35
BlackbirdI can't really do it from there.00:35
BlackbirdI tried. Failed.00:35

I'm just wondering because I have a built in web cam on my computer that doesn't  work and I have to send it in but really can't because I need the computer for school, taking notes, doing assignments, etc.00:39
dellyWell............ then i guess shrink the HD by 200gb and intall <300:39
BlackbirdMhm. I'll try.00:39
GodfatherofEireAny ideas why GNUsound keeps restarting the shell?00:39
dellyShapeShifter499: is there any key on the keyboard for turning the camera on/off? Because i guess its the camera in question.00:40
ShapeShifter499no there is no such key or key combo00:41
ShapeShifter499I don't think00:41
DarkedgeThe package manager says kdev. isn't installed, but it's still on the apps menu00:41
dellyShapeShifter499: so there is no F* button with a camera of sorts on?00:41

Leebierhi, i have a partioning question, i am migrating over from Fedora (will do a clean install) but have a LVM setup on Fedora an would like to keep it on my Ubuntu install, formatting all the partitions fresh except one (with a bunch of media files on it), how do i do this ?01:45
squircleLeebier: If you use the alternate install CD, you can keep all your LVM configuration01:46
scuniziLeebier: lvm is only available on the "alternate" install cd.. not the desktop cd01:46

squircleLeebier: not really01:48
chowderLeebier: you can keep any partition as long as it doesn't have any special config files in it that might confuse Ubuntu01:48
squircleneodragon: sudo modprobe module01:48
chowderLeebier: Gparted01:48
Leebierchowder, the issue is that the ubuntu installer is seeing the entier drive as one partition01:49
ServalOMG, Yay!! Finnally fullscreen youtube! I love you guys, thank you ubuntu devs!01:49
chowderoooh, because of the LVM thing?01:49
squircleLeebier and chowder, i recommend PartedMagic, an "updated GParted" which actually supports LVM and more filesystems01:49
squirclebut Leebier, the easiest way to do it is just booting the alternate CD, and selecting manual partitioning01:49

DevrethmanBecause right now, I definitely get nothingness and despair01:55
demonsporkDevrethman, it should give you a console, means something is wrong if it doesn't01:56
DevrethmanI screwed up Xorg.conf a bit ago01:56

inx-liveDevrethman: Ctrl + Alt +F1 doesn't give you a console?01:56
Leebierthanks for all the responses, but i'm going to admit i'm confused, what is the difference between the regular and the alternate CDs (assuming for the moment I want to actually install it, so I don't want to Live CD, or am i missing some cool idea of the LiveCD?)01:56
DevrethmanIt does now, but it didn't when it was in low-graphics mode.01:56

WolterRickZilla, note that the script needs no extension and has to be stored under ~/bin/woxe-addkey02:03
MindSparksquircle, it looks like the packages are somehow broken02:04

Guest19053It helps to manually install rEFIt02:46
squircleBlackbird: boot into OS X and open the terminal. go to /efi/refit and run enable-always.sh02:47
squircleRoasted: so, just to get the original problem down again, everyone else can access it, but you can't?02:47
powerjuceWolter anything i can do?02:47
Roastedsquircle - yes. Everybody's account is fine, but mine.02:47
Roastedsquircle - When I fired up gadmin-samba, I was creating a test directory for me to get to know the program, and I remember making an adjustment with me being able to access that directory. I ended up deleting it and uninstalling the program cause it seemed cumbersome, but osmehow it still messed things up for me connectiong to my home directory too.02:48
Roastedsquircle - I just always thought that as long as your smb.conf was okay and you have samba users added, NOTHING could go wrong. But damn, for real? I just dont get how that smb.conf appears to be fine (to me) and yet I have mixed results.02:48
Wolterpowerjuce, couldn't find anything02:49
squircleRoasted: try running 'sudo smbpasswd -x jason' and 'smbpasswd -a jason'02:49
Roastedsquircle - I'll try it again, but I did. I even went as far as to remove jason as a user, reboot, re-add as a user, reboot, and then try to connect again and ti failed.02:50
squircleRoasted: because i can see absolutely no reason why you can't access it... your smb.conf is fine, your logs check out02:50

Roastedsquircle - thats why I uninstalled gadmin-samba. I thought maybe that program had its fingers in with the smb.conf despite me having it shut off, so I uninstalled it. I even looked for a .gadmin folder to delete it if it was in my home dir but it wasnt.02:51

zebastianbloody worked02:54
BlackbirdrEFIt works, but...Ubuntu, not so much.02:54
zebastianWolter: jebblue thank you02:54
Roastedsquircle - that kind of makes sense. From XP when I log in as jason/regularpassword, it goes to the next screen where I see the shares. When I click on my share, it prompts me again. It's as if it's asking me to log in as a user who has actual permissions. Thats what happens when curt tries to log into tylers share, cause hes not a valid user.02:54
RHorseMindSpark what does ifconfig/iwconfig show? PM results or pastebin02:55
Roastedsquircle - however, when I set a NEW password to jason and restarted samba services and tried again from XP, it flat otu wouldnt let me past the 1st screen with the new pw. It had to be the old one.02:55
squircleRoasted: btw, force group is deprecated02:55
Roastedsquircle - meaning what?02:55
squircleRoasted: it'll be removed in Samba402:55
squircleRoasted: not a pressing issue02:55
Roastedsquircle - I can work around that. I can just assign the user as the group for the share they own.02:55

UmeaboyAnybody using both Ubuntu & Mandriva here?02:56
Roastedsquircle - actually I lied, I need force group... I need force group for my public share...02:56
Roastedsquircle - I ran force group cuase I didnt want 777 permissions on my public folder, I wanted 775, so I added everybody to the group and pushed that down instead.02:56
squircleRoasted: you can put the create and directory masks under the one share heading and it'll apply only to that share02:57
squircleRoasted: what happens if you change valid users = jason to valid users = %S02:57
squircleRoasted: under the Jason share02:57
UmeaboyI have installed Ubuntu 9.04 on a 300 GB HDD.02:57

ptarrantsinnz: if you can't ping the logon server your not on the network, try the logon server, if you can't your dead totally, and theirs another issue besides DNS and IP settings04:18

MrWizeGuy1983i'm about to be reinstalling windows on my computer, could anyone tell me what i should do to either make sure my grub isn't wiped out or reinstate grub without much trouble so i can still access ubuntu?04:18

spantherok ^^04:18
ptarrantRoasted: do you have pemissions over your share?04:19
Roastedptarrant - yup. Permissions are applied accordingly, too.04:19
soreauMrWizeGuy1983: Since windows always assumes it will be the only OS on the machine, it will overwrite your MBR. To fix it, follow ubottu's instructions:04:19
soreau! grub | MrWizeGuy198304:19
ubottuMrWizeGuy1983: GRUB is the default Ubuntu boot manager. Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto04:19
johannes__hi, does this still work: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=9670 ? do I need the alternate cd or does a live cd work too?04:19
ptarrantRoasted: have you set the samba user password the same as your user account?04:19
Roastedptarrant - I took a backup of my smb.conf last month. I've ran samba for 4 years, and I've never had an issue. I tried to run gadmin-samba to check it out (GUI tool for samba) and bam, things started working weird. So I uninstalled it and brought over my smb.conf backup and rebooted, and still the issue remains.04:19
Roastedptarrant - No. I've never had my samba account password the same as my ubuntu user account. Ever.04:20
ptarrantsinnz: im just making sure, you can't ping the logon server right?04:20
ptarrantRoasted: sorry, bad habit on my part :P so i assume your using the correct samba password04:20
siinz_ptarrant: correct, cant ping anything apparently04:21
Roastedptarrant - Yeah, it's a very simple password... I've even tried other passwords too when I re-created my account.04:21
ptarrantsiinz: then your not on the network at all, are you sure your using the correct IP settings? same as your windows bootup?04:21
siinz_ptarrant: yup04:21
ptarrantRoasted: perhaps reinstall of samba?04:22
Roastedptarrant - why didnt I think of that?04:22
ptarrantRoasted: i do it all the time :P04:22
Roastedptarrant - I guess Im trying to think of it from the network admin standpoint, since reinstalling isnt always the first thing you want to dow hen you have 1,000 users who rely on it.04:22
ptarrantRoasted: indeed04:22
ptarrantsiinz: if your using the same setup as your windows boot, do you have another IP you can use, or are you assigned only one?04:23
Roastedptarrant - which begs the obvious question - If I were a network admin running samba, what would I do? :(04:23
ptarrantRoasted: yea, redoing 1000 users would be a bad thing04:23
Roastedptarrant - however, I just reinstalled samba, and my old smb.conf is here.04:24
siinz_ptarrent: for the most part i can only get another if the server assigns me a new one04:24
ptarrantsiinz: so its DHCP?04:24
ptarrantRoasted: your old one before using the GUI tool?04:24
siinz_ptarrant: yes...as far as i know04:24
mo0nykitHello! I'm running "make menuconfig", where can I find the option for floppy disk drives? I'd like to disable it04:25
Roastedptarrant - the GUI tool takes on the smb.conf, you just can continue editing with the GUI tool and itll apply it to the smb.conf accordingly. But I uninstalled thinking it'd remove my smb.conf, and when I reinstalled it was still there with all of my settings.04:25
ptarrantsiinz: so your not assinging it an IP on linux? or are you?04:25
ProhibitedWhat are some good Linux games?04:25

LinuX2halftanjir, does this apply to my issue?05:01

mikinanuqryguy: ok what's your IP currentlyL05:25
FlannelGratz474_: You can grab the server CD, or the alternate CD.  Either of those will give you the ability to install a GUI-less Ubuntu.05:26
ryguymikinanuq: when I type ifconfig or when I goto www.whatismyip.com?05:26
mo0nykitxorwhy, take note that export doesn't make changes permanently. They'll revert to the defaults on your next reboot.05:26
mikinanuqI see this IP
mikinanuqryguy: whatismyip.com05:26
xorwhymo0nykit: Oh.. Wasn't aware, Thanks05:26
Gratz474_Flannel, i was thinking of doing this over a debian install, sound like an ok choice?05:26
FlannelGratz474_: Yeah, the alternate CD and server CD both use debian-installer05:26
Gratz474_Flannel, i mean like debian changed a few things but it looks like what i want to do will work in ubuntu so i was thinking about using that05:27
mikinanuqryguy: ok so now you need to setup your firewall to forward port 80 to your internal IP you see in ifconfig05:28
xorwhymo0nykit: this will be my last Question, and then I'll rtfmp. If export does not save permanently, can I use set instead?05:28
tanjirmikinanuq, is it because he needs to forward the ip from his router?05:28
FlannelGratz474_: Er, sure05:28
ryguymikinanuq: alright, I'm gonna go do that and I'll get back to ya =)05:28

xorwhyAalinux: Hmm, don't know05:30
tanjirchar00les, another question... can you do ls -al .bash* and paste it? it is possible that .bashrc's owner is the root user05:30
DGGDoes anyone know how to install a program from source?05:31
ZiberAalinux: You want to undo $PATH?05:31
tanjirchar00les, in that case, under your newuser's account, .bashrc can't be accessed05:31
LinuX2halfwhats an extended LBA mean?05:31
AalinuxZiber: Undoing this export command export PATH=$PATH:/usr/sbin/:/usr/local/bin05:31
LinuX2halfits an partition05:31
mikinanuqDGG: usually it's .configure && make && make install05:31
ryguymikinanuq: okay, so heres the deal. I'm on my familys network and my stepdad says he cant let me forward my ipaddress to port 80 because "all http requests will be send to my computer which means no internet for the rest of the family"05:32
DGGI've tried that but no luck05:32
n8tusermikinanuq -> that assumes there is a makefile for it05:32
DGGI'm guessing the && is the name of the program05:32
mikinanuqryguy: that is incorrect05:32
ryguy&& is a way to link shell commands together05:32
Aalinuxxorwhy: Ziber: Only "exit" will do the job.05:32
Prohibited1Tremulous is epic05:33
mo0nykitryguy, i agree with mikinanuq ... Port forwarding happens with inbound packets05:33
LinuX2halfwhats an extended LBA?05:33
n8tuserryguy -> link? nope, its a test05:33
mikinanuqryguy: all that will do is forward http requests from your router to your computer, nothing will be affected.05:33
mikinanuqryguy: just tell him if something breaks to set it back but to at least try it ;)05:33
mo0nykitDGG, && means <do this> AND <do this>05:33
ryguymikinanuq: ha alright ill try05:33
Aalinuxsudo fdisk -l , sudo: fdisk: command not found , but sudo /sbin/fdisk -l works, Why? What to do?05:34
DGGOk but when I .configure it says command not found05:34
cowbudAND meaning only if the first one finishes without an error05:34
cwillu_at_workXor1ng, (in case this hasn't been said yet) export FOO=bar isn't permanent05:34
mikinanuqDGG: you may need to   chmod +x configure   before you run it05:34
n8tuserAalinux -> thats because the command fdisk is not in the $PATH,  use the full path and it will work05:34
mo0nykitcowbud, thanks.. i wasn't aware of that for &&05:35
mikinanuqDGG: run ./configure from the actual directory where the source is05:35
Aalinuxn8tuser: Any way to avoid using /sbin, i want to use only sudo fdisk -l05:35
n8tuserAalinux -> dangerous,  try to use the full path to ensure you are running the correct command and not some trojaned command sitting in your home dir05:36

DGGThanks I see where they mention cmake. guess I need to read up on how that command works.05:50
mo0nykitnomad111, you're welcome :)05:51
dlp211hey...i had a quick question...how do i setup a raid 50?05:52
cowbuddlp211 that is barely a quick question05:52
dlp211i already have 2 raid 5 arrays05:53
dlp211just formated and partitioned05:53
juma_how to record the telnet log?05:53
cowbudare you using soft raid?05:53
mikinanuqdlp211: now you need the same amount of drives and mirror them :)05:53
dlp211can i just use mdadm?05:53
cowbudmdadm --create /dev/mdXX --raid-devices 2 --level 0 /dev/mdA /dev/mdB05:53
dlp211a raid 51005:53
dlp211kk thats what i thought...just wanted to make sure thanks cowbud05:54
cowbudwhere mdA and mdB are your raid5 devices05:54
cowbudyou will need to recreate the filesystem over /dev/mdXX though05:54
dlp211so just use mkfsys.ext etc05:54
mikinanuqwas 0 mirror or stripe? hmm gotta look it up05:55
cowbuddlp211: yep05:55
cowbudmikinanuq: 1 is mirror05:55
mikinanuqah ok, had it mixed up05:55
mikinanuqisn't 5 stripe with parity?05:57
mikinanuqI guess I'm not understanding why you would want to do 50 hmm I've seen 1005:59
dlp211yes 5 is stripe with parity.....raid 50 gives u greater write speeds...its just a little performance bonus and more importantly...it looks like 1 huge hdd06:01
cvandykeYOU'RE THE MAN!06:02
dlp211im currently building a 9 TB server for files/backup/itunes/dvd ripping/etc etc06:03
mikinanuqdlp211: looked in to ZFS?06:03
dlp211ive looked at jfs and ext406:04
mikinanuqI've read a little in to it but haven't checked it out lately.06:04
cobra-the-jokerhey there guys ......do u still support 8.04 ?06:05
mikinanuqdlp211: I read something about RAIDs greater than 3TB are not stable. If one drive fails you'll still get parity problems and the RAID will not rebuild06:05
halhornHey everyone! I need some serious help getting PulseAudio working in 9.04 with 5.1 surround and an Intel AD198x chipset06:05
Biovorecobra-the-joker: yup.. its an LTS06:05
ubottuLTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Hardy (Hardy Heron 8.04).  The next LTS release is scheduled to be 10.0406:06
halhornI've followed all the HOWTOs, I've tried basically everything I can think of, but Pulseaudio refuses to work.06:06
dlp211im not worried....ive seen data centers that use larger raids than i06:06
Biovorehalhorn: what dose aplay -l show for cards?06:07
Biovorein a terminal?06:07
dlp211and if its safe for them then its safe for me06:07
cobra-the-jokeri though LTS stands for LifeTime Support ..lol06:07
mikinanuqdlp211: problem is that drives have a known block failure rate that manufacturers cannot eliminate.. at greater than 3TB you have so many blocks that you're bound to have bad blocks and parity fails06:07
mikinanuqdlp211: something like that06:07
Dr_WillisLife of a Gnat. :)06:07
halhornhalhorn@Hal9000:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog] Subdevices: 0/1  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0   <-- Biovore06:07

mikinanuqdlp211: true, just interesting I thought.06:08
dlp211well i will be a total success or total failure.....06:08
dlp211its not like im running a data center06:08
halhornBiovore: I am told that this card supports 5.1, so...06:08
Biovorehalhorn: I don't know if the linux opensource driver does..06:09
halhornBiovore: None of the channels even show up in Alsamixer06:09
mikinanuqdlp211: http://blogs.zdnet.com/storage/?p=162    here it is06:09
Biovorehalhorn: I think all you get is a master volume and maybe a PCM channel06:09
Biovorethe 5.1 on windows is done via software.06:09
halhornBiovore: Yes. So it just doesn't work, then?06:09
mikinanuqanyway, gotta go gnite06:10
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, first ensure ALSA is selected, by double clicking on the volume control, then File -> Change Device (ALSA Mixer). If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !Players and !MP306:10
halhornNo kidding, right? I've tried all of it, ALL of it. :(06:10
BiovoreI think the alsa site has a compatability matrix.06:10
kyle__hey i want to completely reset all of my audio settings in ubuntu 9.04, does anyone know how to do that?06:11
Biovorehalhorn: what does lspci say the card is?06:11
fiberHello... I was reformatting my iPod and acidentally zero'd the partition on my main HD.... I haven't restarted yet and everything still seems to work... is there any way to recover the partition table with everything preserved?  I ran "dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M count=10"06:12
halhorn00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)06:12
Biovorehalhorn: http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Matrix:Module-intel8x0  is all the info people have collected on that card..  apparently there are alot of oddball variants.06:13
Biovorehalhorn: but it looks like it sees the card because you get a mixer..   Could be something silly like it stuck on putting sound out the HP only.06:14
halhornIt gives me sound perfectly on the front left and right channels06:15
halhornAnd the sub, and nothing else anywhere06:15
halhornI think the problem is something involving channels06:15
DGGok so I'm trying to install a program from source using cmake. How do I do that?06:15
Biovorehalhorn: yeah.. 5.1 probably isn't support.. the 5.1 isn't done in hardware..  Its performed by there userspace program on windows, which dosn't exist for linux.06:16
halhornBiovore: People all over the net seem to be giving me positive reports... there must be a way!06:16
Biovorehalhorn: there are variants of that card that might..06:17

dsnydersHi all!  is there a gui tool for creating mount points and mounting drives?06:36
Blizzeranddsnyders : gparted ??06:37
ubottugparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php06:37
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about figlet06:38
halhornGuhh, still no lock, and literally nobody's talking in #alsa and #pulseaudio06:38
dsnydersBlizzerand, gparted is for creating disk partitions and formatting them.  I don't see anything in there for mounting a partittion06:38

Jordan_Udsnyders: You can set the mount point from nautilus in properties06:41
dsnydersBlizzerand, I want to create a mount point and mount a partition.  I was hoping to avoid hand editing /etc/fstab06:41
=== Outsiderzx is now known as Siege
Blizzeranddsnyders : Ah you did confuse me with that , use terminal , its much easy to mount things with just a single command06:42
dsnydersBlizzerand, the mount command mounts it only until the next reboot.  I could manually edit /etc/fstab, but I was hoping there'd be a gui for that by now.06:43
AngryKoalayou can make it a startup script =p06:44
AngryKoalaand isnt there a gnome automounter application?06:44

DigitalKiwidon't have your lacky bot pm me, kthankx07:31
Blizzerand^mNotIntelligent : I am using ubuntu but I am not interested in customizing ubuntu , but another distro . I have the live cd , and are there any tools that may help doing so07:31
celthunderBlizzerand, you should just need to mount your other distro and edit whatever you need to07:31
prod1sorry back :) hope i didnt miss any help was just tryin to download the .run07:32
^mNotIntelligentBlizzerand, the link meant to sever as a starting point to make you get going with customising linux distros, once you've comfortable doing that you can do the same with any other linux distro...07:32

batrickwhy are newer packages in ubuntu tied to newer ubuntu releases. As an example, nmap 5.0 is only part of ubuntu 9.1008:37
Dr_Willisbatrick:  beacuse ubuntu dosent push new versions of packages onto older releases.08:37
Dr_Willisexcept in the backreports repos - thats one way to get newer stuff.08:37
ubottuIf new updated Ubuntu packages are built for an application, then they may go into Ubuntu Backports. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBackports - See also !packaging08:37
Gneabatrick: because ubuntu releases more often than a lot of other distros, which makes the backports that much more available to previous versions08:38
blueglassesi'm running karmic koala, is there a version of virtualbox for it? what about boxee?08:38
Gneaand if backports doesn't have it, ppa might08:38
Dr_Willisblueglasses:  virtualbox is in the repos for 9.1008:38
Dr_Willisblueglasses:  check the package manager08:38
cheslynprince_jammys: it does'nt show any password it only say the configuration could not be loaded when i try 2 open users and groups08:38
Gneablueglasses: #ubuntu+1 can help you a bit better with that, we support 9.04 and earlier here08:39
ShapeShifter499n8tuser: i'm sorry I can't find the file08:39

alkisgI got 12 PCs on a local network, named client01, client02..., client12. Avahi properly works on all of them, e.g. if I sit on client01 and try `ping client12.local`, I get a reply. I'd like to be able to do `ping client12` without the .local suffic. So I tried putting "search local" in my /etc/resolv.conf, to no avail. What am I doing wrong?08:56
cheslynprince_jammys:thanks alot i'll try harder now08:56
m3onh0x84_why me don't add http://ftp mirror to apt sources.list ?08:57
aethelrickalkisg: do you have a dns server?08:58
m3onh0x84_I have :D08:58
alkisgaethelrick: no, except for my router which has a simple forwarder08:59
m3onh0x84_but can not add any http://ftp mirror to sources.list08:59
aethelrickalkisg: if you want to use names instead of ip addresses to contact machines on your network, then you need a dns server :)08:59
prince_jammyscheslyn: sorry, I don't have "Users and Groups" installed. look in the forums for 'users and groups' 'configuration could not be loaded'.08:59
alkisgaethelrick: avahi ****is**** an mdns server08:59
alkisgaethelrick: that's the main reason it exists...09:00
prince_jammyscheslyn: the name of the application is "users-admin"09:00
m3onh0x84_I use opendns , and vnpt dns, why it not accept ?09:00
techieaethelrick, alkisg or a WINS server09:00
alkisgaethelrick: as I said *I'm able* to ping client01.local. So mdns works fine09:00
alkisgaethelrick: I only have a suffix problem...09:01
aethelrickalkisg: as far as I know... avahi is a zeroconf mdns implementation that allows interoperation with apple kit09:01
alkisgaethelrick: yup, and it works fine for standalone ubuntu machines on a local network without a dns server. My only problem is that it doesn't reply without specifically using the .local suffix...09:02
Padhualkisg: samba share or for web server?09:03
alkisgPadhu: neither - I e.g. need to ssh to them09:03
alkisgPadhu: i.e. ssh client12.local works fine, but ssh client12 doesn't work09:03
calebHalkisg: do you have winbind installed?  As far as I know it can run alongside avahi, and it might solve your problem09:03
alkisgcalebH: I don't have windows machines on my local network... do I need winbind?09:03
Padhualkisg: I thing you should configure host name setup. host allow, Host deny etc.09:04
aethelrickalkisg: I just had a quick read in the zeroconf docs... looks like you only get .local to play in by design09:04
calebHit gives you a name service that will allow you to communicate without the .local "domain"/suffix09:04
calebHalkisg: it works for me and I don't have a single win box on my network09:05
alkisgcalebH: so it's an alternative to avahi? thanks, I'll look into that09:05
prince_jammysalkisg:  perhaps relevant: http://www.mail-archive.com/avahi@lists.freedesktop.org/msg01483.html09:05
alkisgaethelrick: but shouldn't the resolver try client12.local when client12 fails? Isn't that what "search .local" is for, in resolv.conf?09:05
calebHinstall the 'winbind' package, and add 'wins' to the following line in your /etc/nsswitch.conf:09:05
aethelrickalkisg: good question... I guess that depends on how much cross over to regular DNS the avahi guys included09:06
calebHalkisg: "hosts:          files mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] dns mdns4 wins"09:06
alkisgprince_jammys: thanks, I guess that's the source of the problem. DNS is tried first, it fails, and mdns is the last resort (and that doesn't look at resolv.conf)09:06
alkisgaethelrick: yup, I think that's it ^^^09:07
shosswhich java should be my default: 1    /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk/jre/bin/java or 2    /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java ?09:07
alkisgcalebH: Thanks, I'll look into that as well :)09:07
calebHalkisg: you can read the man pages, or google for more info, but nsswitch provides instructions on the order in which names are looked up...09:07
aethelrickalkisg: I've got a small network at home running 7 machines and BIND solves these problems for me, my users don't need to do anything special as it's all configured by DHCP and DDNS working together09:09
aethelrickalksig: even my macbook plays nice :)09:09
alkisgaethelrick: I tried using BIND, but I have a major problem: I *have* to use a simple router as a DHCP server, so BIND doesn't work out of the box in that case. I have to use nsupdates, and that's a PITA... :-/09:10

aethelricksteven__: I used to run both myself once upon a time :)09:14
calebHaethelrick: I think I'm having a similar problem as alkisg, but I haven't had time to look into it, and it doesn't seem to happen all the time.  I've tried to get avahi to pay attention to resolv.conf, but to no avail.09:14

grawitygruberr: They work for me. (Basically, Tor is a program that must be updated as fast as possible when a new release is out -- and Ubuntu repos are kinda slow in that.)09:17
aethelrickGratz474: I hear that the kde4 guys are getting more stability again now, but I'm going to give it a while before I try it09:17

flymanpeeps123: You need to update your apt-get and apt-file then09:48
flymanpeeps123: Did you happen to try the update manager?09:48
akscicalebH: if i copy any existing launcher n try changing its properties, i cannot rename it unless i use root everytime! too much job to do! :D09:49
xT|Fishaksci, change chmod09:49
flymanpeeps123: No luck I assume of any new updates from it?09:49
Jareubuntu: if the header file is included in .c, it is taken into account during compiling. so you list only .c files to the compiler..09:50
peeps123flyman  nope09:50
flymanapt-get -u dist-upgrade09:50
calebHaksci: you must be copying the files as root...  I just did the following and copied the synaptic launcher from it's default (and root-owned) location, and it worked fine:09:50
flymanoops. sudo apt-get -u dist-upgrade09:50

calebHtimClicks: that's like asking if anyone knows "much" about computers...  Too broad.  What specifically are you trying to figure out?09:54
flymanroflparrot: it will firstly download any critical or needed dependencys and other programs from distro source that the computer may not have09:55
timClickscaleH: I'm just wondering why VirtualBox OSE doesn't seem to be recognizing the host key09:55
zvacetMert :you can download it from http://www.getdeb.net/search.php?keywords=songbird09:55
flymanso basically anything available and it's dependencys will be downloaded roflparrot09:55

timClickswill play around with it09:57
timClicksjust thought I would ask if anyone else had had issues09:57
calebHtimClicks: don't apologize, you're doing pretty good if you have figured out the concept of "host" and "guest"09:57
flymanhobi: in terminal you can su to root and vi the file or sudo vi /file-path09:57
hobiflyman, will give that a try - thanks09:57

pitputI can't update my blocklist.. It's just saying updating09:59
flymancalebH: I use vbox religiously too and no problems. Couldn't live without it.10:00
timClickscaleb: so, when you click on the right control - it takes you back to the host?10:00
flymantimahvo1: press right-control left mouse click10:00
timClickscalebH: will find some relatively obscure key combo and update10:00
calebHtimClicks: when I press the hostkey button (which is right-ctrl by default) it releases the mouse/keyboard from being bound to the guest vm10:01

calebHalkisg: well, there are a few ways to do it and I'm not sure if I would give you the best advise10:12
timClicks_angelo_: ah.. each application has its own print dialogue10:12
_angelo_angelo, well...firefox and gedit10:12
timClicks_angelo_: so send the bug to whichever application that you find the bug10:12
marcellusWindows redraw slowly (jaunty,compiz,Nvidia 9500GT,just installed) and I have googled that setting "Force synchronization between X and GLX" would be the solution, but I don't have such an option in ccsm?10:13
grawitytimClicks: It does? I thought it's the standard GTK one.10:13
timClicks_angelo_: they will forward it to the right people if need be :)10:13
alkisgcalebH: *any* way would be good enough for me as  I only need it for testing purposes.... so feel free to give any advice :)10:13

timClicksgrawity: not a GTK+ standard, per se (as I understand things - may be wrong)10:13
calebHalkisg: but one way is to put a symlink in /etc/rc*.d/ (read the 'boot' man page for more info)10:14
Lupo_Lancolibrary problem10:14
flymanshoss: I think if we use CONFIG_ACPI_AC=m it will fix our issue10:14

amigamiaok i dont understand. you put the 8.04.3 distros together with wubi.exe for 8.04.1 so why?10:14
amigamiais there a solution?10:14
shossflyman: so i just type that in the terminal?10:15
calebHalkisg: "man boot" & read under "Sequencing Directories"10:15
soreaumarcellus: That option is only available in recent versions of compiz, ie. Jaunty and later10:15
alkisgcalebH: at which point is X initialized? E.g. could I put it in rcS.d/S99 ?10:15
HazeFazewonderboy: you can check gnome-power-statistics10:15
marcellussoreau: I have jaunty10:15
calebHalkisg: I'd put it in rc2.d10:15
amigamiai might as well go back and use hoary10:15

wonderboyHazeFaze:  thanks but it seems to be working only on laptop.. i don't have any battery here so there is no sense in "discharge time profile" etc..10:16
marcellussoreau: I found it now.10:16
calebHalkisg: just look at what else you have in there and pick a place for it - the scripts are executed in sequential order, so I'm sure you'll figure it out10:16
peeps123flyman sorry that should be Content10:16
flymanpeeps123: poster would be your name and syntax don't worry about and comment is what your pasting10:16
steven__Are all those daemons?10:17

Gratz474a base ubuntu is 500 mb ?10:17

prince_jammysandy17null: that's the prob.10:22
flymanpeeps123: see you in a few moments10:22

TheTomi've got a problem with unetbootin. the image is copied to another destination in /media. my usb device is /dev/sdb1 mounted @ /media/PKBACK but when I select /dev /sdb1 in unetbootin the files are copied to /media/PKBACK00432. why is this second location created, and how can I get passed this problem?10:29
calebHandy17null: enjoy10:29
TheTomcan i just copy the files over, will it still be bootable?10:29
shossflyman: I only main problem (ubuntu 9.04 amd64) is with the slow USB transfer rates, really, and I'm just going through all error msgs so maybe it will fix it..10:30
Dr_WillisTheTom:  perhaps Unmount the  thing first?10:30
TheTomDr_Willis: before what? i've unmounted it several times, same thing happens10:30
shossflyman: I gave up on trying to solve it directly been trying for a week10:31
Dr_WillisTheTom:  ive nevre had that issue with unetbootin here. - i do find the ubuntu usb-disk creator tool works better for me for Ubuntu disks.10:31
shossflyman: i can't find any clear answers to that issue anywhere10:31
Dr_WillisTheTom:  unmount it and remove the /media/pkback directory perhaps?10:31
Pirate_HunterPadhu: guess i aint awake yet the lan address was missing the third octave no clue how I didnt spot that after three attempts, wel using debug mode helped in the end :'s10:32
TheTomDr_Willis: copied the files over now, it's loading the /ubninit now. maybe it'll work this time.10:32

DhuskiNitrodist, they seem to have a different output while both do the same job...10:53
shossok so as long as it's not the OS i'm all god :)10:53
NitrodistDhuski, I know that sometimes they will conflict with each other.  apt-get wouldn't let me reinstall kdm or any packages associated with kdm until I used aptitude.10:54

Is there any detailed discussion?  Every time I type sudo in ubuntu, my colleagues laugh at me.  I argued "it's safter." but I am not so sure because we are programmers and we have to use "root" priority very often, so it doesn't make much different for me to root and non-root user.11:06

AraneidaeIf nc can't reach port 5900 then nor can any other vnc client11:45

stefgdas_steb: is that a sata or an (old-style) ide system? AFAIK the Live CD does not mount the harddisk automatically (won't touch anything until you tell it to).
