Raenirgonna try VirtualBoxing it now00:00
tryggvibmark_: I used that but when I started having fun with different domains for different things (I know... I'm just having fun) it doesn't work00:01
dcrostaI've installed the Broadcom driver per http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=914697, and it appears to work, but it names the wireless NIC "eth2" -- what's the proper way to rename it "wlan0" etc? Or do I need to set that as an option when loading the kernel module?00:01
ActionParsnipdcrosta: wlan0 is usual00:01
flyppRaenir, is a Directx game?00:02
mark_tryggvib : Silly question, but you made sure you put .html or .htm or .ph or whatever at the end of the url, localhost/special.html should have worked.. works here on my pages00:02
dcrostaActionParsnip: right -- but the driver calls it "eth2" by default, it seems00:02
Raenirflypp: yes00:02
flyppsoy_el_dip, at last!!!00:02
flyppRaenir, forget VirtualBox00:02
flyppuse Vista in a separated partition00:02
tryggvibmark_: no I didn't... I'm trying to access a folder ... so basically I'm trying to access localhost/special/index.php00:03
Raenirflypp doesnt work.... vista wont boot00:03

dcrostaActionParsnip: thanks00:03
bastidrazorRaenir: iso00:04
flyppRaenir, you will need a valid Vista ISO00:04
tryggvibmark_: I'm using different free software projects on different domains, phpDiplomacy for friends, wordpress for family etc. and I want to be able to access both from computers on my LAN00:04
[Nikola-93]Raenir: give a try to Win 700:04

tryggvibmark_: so basically for webdiplomacy I want my friends to access www.our-diplomacy.com and get to that folder and my family to access www.our-family-site.com and get that site... so http://localhost doesn't work for me00:05
[Nikola-93]Raenir: you can download win 7 for free from M$ site, and it works until may next year, and... it`s free and legal version00:05
[Nikola-93]think it`s may00:06

sebsebsebdragon: beta can still brake00:33

DigitalKiwido you see Ethernet there? I don't00:37
sebsebsebdragon: and how it may give them a reason to clean install the whole of Ubuntu,   because the Ext3 to Ext4 conversion may not be good enough.   With the advantages of Ext4 being  rather fast boot up and shut down,  and  very fast disk checking after the 23 or so boots.00:37

DigitalKiwieddiebuntu: remove the grep00:38
sebsebsebdragon: It was optional for 9.04 and not properly stable, because of the kernel they had and that for it,  in 9.10 it's default, not for people who have done Ext3 in 9.04 and then upgraded to 9.10 though.00:38

RDovesammy_, do you have all that decryption stuff for the DVD's?01:20
PneuCige: D'oh  try: du -dx / | sort -n | tail -2001:20
PneuIf it's the root partition01:20
RDovesammy_,  i think out of the box most linux distro's don't allow you to play DVD's because of the copyright stuff, i had to download a special decoder01:20
sammy_RDove, nout to do with css stuff; linux thinks the disk is only a 1GB block device.  mplayer etc. don't get further than that01:20
PneuCige: But it looks like there is a lot of stuff in /.Trash-0/ as well... Have you logged in to the GUI as root?01:21

ubottuMoc: The Ubuntu repositories and ISO mirrors are currently under heavy load due to the release of the Karmic Koala (9.10) beta. Please consider using !torrents to download ISO images, and be patient with APT updates.05:45

aprilharenexuiz 2.5.2 has been released. it comes in either glx or sdl forms. which is better to use?05:46
woodyjlw:)05:46
magikidWolfenstein: It won't remove the settings in your home folder.05:46
firecrotchpete_: did you follow the setup steps to load ndiswrapper at boot?  if so, you're done, and should reboot to ensure that the module loads at boot05:46
aprilhareboth glx and sdl forms appear to work, hence my confusion.05:46
magikidWolfenstein: Those are in ~/.xchat2.  Deleting that folder should do it.05:47
Wolfensteinmagikid, so i should after removing xchat should delete the main folder?05:47
alokitoaftac, paste all the files, run the update then use sudo apt-get clean to clean up the packages05:47
pete_firecrotch, what step was that05:47
Mock05:47
magikidWolfenstein: Yes, after you uninstall xchat, delete the .xchat2 folder in your home folder.05:48
woodyjlwI read that they are working on a linux driver but thought maybe some one here might have already got magicjack to work without the Vbox and installing MS virus on PC05:48

KcsrndHow do I remove the old drive and install a driver for the new card?06:10
fbdystangmusikgoat: Doesn't that mean that it is the 64 bit version of firefox?06:11
aftacfbdystang: In my case, yes. I often have several copies of Firefox open with numerous tabs on each, and it appears at some point opening a new tab will cause Firefox to crash, but I can easily restore them all by opening Firefox again. Firefox appears to consume more and more memory the longer it runs, and I just assume that creates the problem. It's been happening for a long time now.06:11

Wolfensteinwashburnello, well i have a problem to access my windows files from ubuntu but not my ubuntu files from windows i was doing something like //computername/user i think and i don't know if i forgot something but i had to reformat my windows comp and i have files i want to move back over to my windows comp06:32
washburnellodg1: windows can be very complex when your managing big networks and doing a lot of registry customizing. but complex doesn't = good all the time06:33
lizzzyalokito, I guess hda intel and sigmatel stac92xx the last time I checked.06:33
pukekomusikgoat:  hmmm i think i'll do it the "safe" way.. got a gig to get to and don't want to be stuck here headscratching or worse06:33
Doc_LappyI'd say being a laptop it would be easier to google the serial number and find out06:33
musikgoatLiquidRain: i don't have jaunty on it any more, so you want to compare it to yours?06:33
lizzzyalokito Not too sure if that's what you asked ^^06:33
alokito!sound06:33
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 !MP306:33
LiquidRainmusikgoat: I'm running Karmic on my laptop right now... so a comparison would.. well then again you have an Atom, but still, it'd be good to compare.06:33
dg1yeah, complex surely isnt good all the time06:33
washburnelloWolfenstein: sorry I accidently closed the chat window, could you repeat that?06:33

LiquidRainOk, mine is significantly faster than that, but I can't scroll around without getting lag.  I guess you're not a good comparison.06:36
musikgoatlstarnes: at least in my opinion06:36
washburnelloWolfenstein: did it fork?06:36
lstarnesmusikgoat: even then it still lacks some support, but that works better06:36
musikgoatLiquidRain:06:36
washburnelloWolfenstein: *work06:36
musikgoatyeah, check in #ubuntu+106:36
LiquidRainfriendishan: I've never used it, but it's the first result for "ubuntu metronome" :)06:36
Doc_Lappywell true it's not the ideal one for irc but for what I use it for I don't need xchat or anything so I suggest it to some just so they don't have so many  things they have to run at once06:37
Wolfensteinwashburnello, i didn't do it with smb before it was just //COMPUTERNAME/Downloads or my user for my ubuntu06:37

washburnellohave you tried pinging the winbox's ip?06:41
Dr_Willisxchat is rather standard irc.. /join should work in any of them06:41
Doc_Lappythat's why I would prefer xchat over pidin and it's well a better looking gui too06:41
Wolfensteinwashburnello, i don't know i can't remember what the people that were trying to help me tried and couldn't figure out why it wasn't working on the ubuntu end06:41

dg1brasaro suc06:43
dg1use k3b06:43
washburnelloWolfenstein: in ubuntu, open a terminal (applications>accessories>terminal) and type "ping 192.168.1.1" but replace with your winbox's IP06:43
Doc_LappyI've always had my best luck with k3b burning anything, funny I couldn't get brasero to burn for me06:43
Doc_Lappyto each his own - washington06:43

Wolfensteinwashburnello, both computers connect to same modem06:44
Wolfensteinand both can connect to internet just fine06:44
firecrotchWolfenstein: what are the IP addresses of the two computers?06:45
fbdystangmamooli: did you get your question answered?06:45
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, i don't know they both same ip cause i use the same connection for both06:45
washburnelloWolfenstein: this is where is gets hairy: pinging is the lowest level network command there is so if you can't even ping a host, there is a problem06:45
washburnelloWolfenstein: hmmm...06:46
dg1washburnello: you have jaunty06:46
washburnellodg1:  yup06:46
firecrotchWolfenstein: they shouldnt have the same IP address, they should each have their own different internal IP addresses06:46
dg1hmm, i heard brasaro had a problem with the new jaunty, either way it still dosnt work for me06:46
firecrotchWolfenstein: probably both in the 192.168.1.x ranger06:46
firecrotch*range06:46
washburnelloWolfenstein:  well if they have the same IP then that's the problem, but in theory, if they have the same IP then only one should be able to get online06:47
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, i know its the same cause like i said its from the same modem my same dsl modem i have both computers to same modem06:47

firecrotchWolfenstein: please explain your setup a little more... they are both connected directly to your DSL modem?  Does your modem have a router/switch built into it or?06:48
washburnelloWolfenstein: a dsl modem will have one WAN IP an will dish out multiple LAN IP's to your computers06:48

Ali_nz^is it possible with a PPTP VPN connection to add a specific machine name to a routing path?07:12
coyote_saludos07:12
firecrotchAli_nz^: still trying to get your DNS working over your VPN connection, I see?07:13
Ali_nz^firecrotch: hehe, what I think i kinda want is like an entry to say if you type in "QNAP" resolve the address via VPN07:13
Ali_nz^a bit like a routing table entry07:13
Ali_nz^but not using IP's07:14
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, and also you're right both computers have different ip's the windows comp is 1 number lower than my ubuntu computer07:14
firecrotchAli_nz^: there's really no way to do that, as far as I know.  One solution would be to use your work's DNS servers for everything when you're connected to the VPN.07:14
Ali_nz^firecrotch: ok07:15
firecrotchAli_nz^: if you know your work LAN's DNS server IP address, you can change it in /etc/resolv.conf07:15
Ali_nz^hey also, is there a way to browse a Windows Computer via IP? what do you use to do it?07:15

pradeepjamieleshaw: how to fix it07:19
pradeep?07:19
pete_firecrotch, you still there, LOL07:19
firecrotchAli_nz^: Nautilus isn't looking at the VPN subnet at all.  I'm not sure how to get it to do that.  But you can browse the remote computers if you know the IP address by typing smb://ipaddresshere/  in the address bar of nautilus07:19
fbdystangideal refresh rate is >= 60 hertz07:19
firecrotchpete_: yes I am07:19

Wolfensteinfirecrotch, yea lol i been talking to you and telling you that the dmz mode thing was the problem07:24
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, and my problem in windows is i can't access my ubuntu files from windows07:25
firecrotchWolfenstein: the easiest way to access the files on the ubuntu machine from your windows machine will be to share the files using samba07:26
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  i often find it easier to just put winscp on the windows box . and access ubuntu via ssh  that way07:26
firecrotchOr listen to Dr_Willis, since I have no clue how to set up Samba in gnome07:27
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, well before i was able to do it when i typed //COMPUTERNAME/Downloads or //COMPUTERNAME/user in the run box and was able to put my username and pass in the prompt but i can't remember if im doing something wrong since i reformatted windows07:27
pradeepioneye: where do i change the refresh rate??? its not there in BIOS07:27
gishausthi everyone can anyone tell me  run stream mp3 from my apache2 intranet07:28
wewwi thouht refresh was an os thing07:28
pradeepWolfenstein: if your not familiar with samba. There as an application called meiga through which u can share files. try it out07:28
Ali_nz^firecrotch: yep that nautilus trick worked07:29
howitzer`pradeep: hopefully it's not a monitor that is from before the middle-90s, which can't handle 60hz?07:29
erosswhat does acpi=force irqpoll  do?07:29
Wolfensteinpradeep, its not im not familiar with samba i've done this //computername/user or /downloads command before and it worked now it won't let me do it07:30

pspewhy cannot i enter the virtual terminal with 2.6.3007:35

WolfensteinDr_Willis, what? im not sharing files through same computer if thats what you're asking i have 2 computers one is windows and one is nix, os ubuntu which is what im on now07:36
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  as a 'test'  i always make a share on both machines. and make sure they can access theor own local shares.07:37
howitzer`pradeep: did you try to install in safe graphics mode?07:37
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  also instead of //HOSTnAME/share  you could try the ip#.07:37
pspeDr_Willis: tty0-607:38
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  im just thinking through things ive done in the past to trouble shoot samba.07:38
WolfensteinDr_Willis, i have my config for samba set with computername and i did that in windows its telling me it can't find it07:38
Dr_Willispspe:  those are the 'consoles'   is what they are normally called.07:38
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  can the windows box even ping the lin box via  the name?  can it ping via ip?07:38
WolfensteinDr_Willis, i never had a problem before like i said i just reformatting the windows computer and got it all squared up so i shouldn't have a problem07:39
Dr_WillisWolfenstein:  im just spitting out trouble shooting 'things to try' to narrow down the problem.07:40
Ali_nz^is there a network map app with a gui?07:40
Dr_WillisIf the windows box cant even ping the lin box. well.... thats where you need to start07:40

=== Claudinux_ is now known as Claudinux

beatbreakerwhat allows people to drag a window to different workplaces with the mouse in Ubuntu?07:41

starcannonbrambo backup all data that is important to you, then do a reinstall, use 8.04 LTS unless there is some reason you need a later version08:12
=== cWiiu is now known as tWii
brambo_godstar: I booted off the Ubuntu disc from my BIOS08:12
=== tWii is now known as cWii
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, i did that and it comes up with the same problem not finding it08:13
godstarbrambo, can you boot back to your Windows OS?08:13
brambo_I cant use 8.04  only 9.04 works on my laptop...08:13
Tmistarcannon, better recommend the latest stable, i.e. 9.0408:13
brambo_yes I can godstar08:13
firecrotchWolfenstein: make sure that the folders are still shared on your ubuntu machine? that's the last thing that I can think of08:13
starcannonTmi nah, its a tweenlease, I only recommend LTS unless a tween adds hardware support that the enduser needs, and brambo just stated he/she needs 9.04 for that reason08:14
TmiI guess the problem is you wont have enough space to even install gparted (partition manager), so you should probably just do a reinstall08:14
cgrozahello ,my grub menu shows 2 kernels ...how do i remove one?08:14
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, um i don't think i did that i only did things in the samba config file08:14
godstarbrambo, I suggest you boot back into Windows, reformat Ubuntu partition with DiskMgr and use the Wubi installer. http://wubi-installer.org/08:14
Lartza_Hello, gparted is whining about changing partions may cause dataloss, but I want to lose my data and completely empty my drive, I can't seem to figure out how to do that data is still there.08:14
brambo_I can just go in Windows and totally delete Ubuntu and the partition it made and do it over, cause I dont know how to reinstall Ubuntu08:14
godstarbrambo, wubi is easier to use for new converts.08:14
godstarbrambo, wubi.08:15
firecrotchWolfenstein: I think the problem lies with your Windows install somewhere.  Is it Vista, XP, or 7?08:15
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, its xp08:15
starcannonLartza_ backup data before messing with partitions, this is where sanity lives; do otherwise and you will testdisk08:15
cgrozahello ,my grub menu shows 2 kernels ...how do i remove one?08:15
brambo_use the WuBi installer from Windows?08:15
brambo_Doesn't that make Ubuntu slower?08:15
godstarbrambo, that is correct.08:15
firecrotchWolfenstein: up to date with service pack 3 and all that good stuff?08:15
Lartza_starcannon: Backed up and I want to format the partition now, but the data is staying there no matter what08:15
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, and never had a problem before but i didn't mess with samba config file08:15
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, yep08:16
Lartza_I have formatted partition, deleted and made new partition08:16
nareshovhi08:16
Lartza_Ouch... do I need to possibly make new partition table?08:16
godstarbrambo, it is your best option, until you get the hang of Ubuntu.08:16
nareshovgot a bunch of upgrades yesterday08:16
Lartza_Would that do it?08:16
nareshovand my touchpad doesn't work anymore08:16
firecrotchWolfenstein: well, it has to be some kind of problem with your Windows install.  Unfortunately, I'm way out of the loop when it comes to Windows stuff now08:16
draconisgodstar: Wait, Wubi actually uses that ancient boot loader, that loads from a Windows/Dos partition?08:16
nareshov(i can't use my touchpad to move the cursor)08:16
brambo_I've  installed Ubuntu the same way I just did a few minutes ago before and had no problems, this time somehow even tho I picked 50GB, it didnt do it?08:17
starcannonLartza_ I'll help you in PM look left08:17
zeededdraconis: Hes just that sexy08:17
Wolfensteinfirecrotch, no problem a friend who helped me begin with isn't around and i don't know why its not working so no worries08:17
nareshovi have "synaptics driver lost sync.... got giantic packet!"08:17

brambo_I will just totally delete Ubuntu and try installing it again...That's the easiest way I know how to do it since Im new to Linux totally08:18
zeededbrambo_: Whats wrong?08:18
brambo_zeeded: I installed Ubuntu a few mins ago, and selected it to use 50GB of my hard drive but now its saying I dont have enough space to update my stuff08:18
Tmibrambo, thats probably your best option yes, check one extra time that the partition size is correct and you should get it running nicely :)08:18
brambo_Tmi: I hope so :)08:19
zeededbrambo_: If you want to make sure its not something else maybe check gparted?08:19
=== nareshov is now known as naresh
zeededif not, a fresh install might be best :/08:19
brambo_zeeded: I am new to Linux so I dont know how to do what you said.08:19
brambo_zeeded: what is gparted ?08:20
Tmibrambo, in a terminal write "sudo aptitude install gparted" and then type your password when it asks for it08:20
zeededits GTK+ Partitioning software08:20
Tmiits a partition manager08:20
brambo_This sucks cause I got my Wireless to work this time in Linux, and I gotta delete it and start over again..08:20
godstarTmi: he can not get Ubuntu to boot.08:20
Tmigodstar, I think he is in ubuntu actually08:20
brambo_Tmi: should I paste bin the results?08:21
Tmiif it doesnt even boot then a reinstall is absolutely in order :D08:21
Tmibrambo, yeah do08:21
* godstar scratches head.08:21
draconisgodstar: yeah, I saw that, I just thought there was an issue with gparted. now that clears it up08:21
godstarI was under the impression, Ubuntu was not booting for him.08:22
brambo_Tmi: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/284385/08:22
Tminah he is in ubuntu but cant do any updates due to diskspace being used08:22
Tmibrambo, start it by typing "gparted" now (I think)08:22
brambo_yeah but I picked for Ubuntu to use 50GB of my hard drive, its wierd...08:23
godstarbrambo, is this a live cd session or no?08:23
TmiI dont know much about the program itself, but you might be able to extend partitions in there08:23
brambo_no, not LiveCD, the system is installed08:23
godstarkk08:23
godstarIn that case.08:23
godstarGparted it is.08:23
brambo_Tmi: did you get my pastebin?08:23
Tmigodstar, the problem seems to be that it is installed but on a 2.3 Gb partition instead of the intended 50 Gb08:23
zeededhow do you do a screenshot from a term?08:23
=== ce_metal_cord is now known as LeMOotZz
Tmibrambo, yes, try starting gparted by writing "gparted"08:24
Tmizeeded, "scrot"08:24
godstarTmi: appears so.08:24
brambo_oh, well I am so new to Ubuntu I dunno how to swtich it, so I will have to delete it all and start oveer again I think...:-(08:24
brambo_Since GParted is a powerful tool capable of destroying partition tables and vast amounts of data, only root may run it.08:24
Tmijust try playing around with the options in gparted and see if it is possible to change partition sizes08:24
godstarbrambo, do you remember what size partition you chose for /root, and swap directories?08:25
le-foothello to any songbird users - I have 9.04 and songbird 1.0, and I have media keys working in Rhythmbox and Totem. - just not in Songbird. Is there a way to fix this? MMkeys didn't do the trick. Thanks08:25
=== Seveaz is now known as Seveas
Tmiif you want to run as root you write "sudo gparted"08:25
Tmiand enter your password when prompted for it08:25
brambo_I didnt chose anything, I just selected it to install next to Windows Vista and slided a bar to the left so Ubuntu used 50GB08:25
Dr_Willisplay with gparted on a virtialbox machine :) to learn its features08:26
godstarbrambo, correct. Honestly, gparted is friendly to learn, however, reload for a beginner will better suited. Book back into Windows, and reformat the Ubuntu partition. When you are ready to reload, let us know we can help you from there.08:26
zeededgodstar: someone new to linux is not going to remember that. Especially an Ubuntu user08:26
godstarzeeded: good point.08:26
zeeded:)08:26
brambo_I like Linux, how stable it is, I wannna learn it...so I am gonna delete it and reinstall it.08:27
Tmihis / is 2.3 Gb08:27

brambo_I am getting so angry with Windows....08:27
vtecdoes anyone know of an auto clicker for linux ubuntu GNOME that will just click ever 2 seconds in the same place?08:27
Tmibrambo, yeah that is probably the best option since that will only take about half an hour or so08:27
brambo_godstar: all I did was select time zone and keyoard type etc, and it said starting partition manager, then I slide a bar to the left to select 50GB for Ubuntu instead of deleting Windows, and hit next..08:28
brambo_Tmi: yeah08:28

Barnabasnmap is a good tool09:38
Barnabasfor example nmap -sP 192.168.1.0/2409:39

Barnabasif your pc and your modem is not on the same subnet they cannot communicate without routing09:44
Madpilotaber, /join #transmission09:44
Barnabasso perhaps the modem has no IP09:44

s0m345sooneBarnabas: this is modem..09:47
crypt3orI had a sbc modem that pretended to be on a different subnet09:47
Barnabashas nothing to do with antenna09:47
crypt3orno wait...09:47
nascentmindDoc_Lappy, do --> show databases; to list out the databases.09:47
Barnabass0m345soone, I think it directly bridges your external IP onto the nic in your pc09:48
pradeepcan i install the karmic gdm in jaunty09:48
joaopintopradeep, no09:48
pradeepjoapinto,why so09:48
crypt3oryeah so the wireless router had an internal subnet of 192.168.1.x, and then the modem created a subnet of 192.168.2.x, and then external to the modem is where you get the world-visible IP address.  So to access the modem's config page, you would go to like 192.168.2.25009:48
joaopintopradeep, because it was tested, and could break your system do to package requirements09:49

ubuntu_I just need to delete and get rid of the partitions  swap /dev/sda6 dev/sda5 and another Ubuntu one thats there n do a new install along side my other OS.10:09
archy008does anybody know how to fix the following sound issue? - the gnome-sound-properties don't start, neither does the volume manager, and when I try to start them manually i get errors instead... still the sound DOES work in the guest account..10:09
Doc_Lappywell go into the install and where it says use entire disk below is a choice to not use entire disk10:09
archy008any ideas?10:09
icerootbullgard: lsb_release -a10:10
Doc_Lappyand if its winxp or something it should show it there as a different colour10:10
ScorchThat's for the full ubuntu new release, yes? This was a security update and it was just weird10:10
ubuntu_I would slide over what I wanna keep, but theres is 3 diff Ubuntu partitions still existing I need to delete10:10
ubuntu_first10:10
ubuntu_I have Win Vista10:10
ubuntu_and it dont see the Linux partitions10:10
Doc_Lappyah I see10:11
archy008i tried reinstalling gnome-sound properties and alsa but it doesn't help10:11
starcannonarchy008 sounds like you got a bad local config file. You could try archiving all of the ~/.* folders, and then one at a time putting them back until you find the culprit10:11
h34rt k10:11
ubuntu_I just wanna get this installed before I head off to sleep and finish it up tomorrow...10:11
archy008starcannon: I see... is that the only solution?10:11

starcannonarchy008, no not the only solution, just the one that came to me first. Deductive reasoning could make the list of folders to do that to shorter, that and google10:12

starcannondownstar onboard here, and it sounds fantastic10:13
archy008starcannon somebody told me I should delete the .gnome folder..10:13
Doc_Lappygoing into grub /boot/grub/menu.lst will fix your grub problems if it causes grub to not come up but as far as del partitions of repeated installs of ubuntu you may have to just install vista again and then do a dual boot of ubuntu again10:13
starcannondownstar I have my sound going out to a Marants 2270 amp :)10:13
archy008starcannon although i'm not sure about that...10:13
ubuntu_How do I delete all partitions that Ubuntu made in the Partition manager during install so all I see is the NTFS Win Vista section, and can re install Ubuntu over?10:14
downstarif you guys load gnome-volume-control and go to your pref. tab and add switches, do you get an option to check or uncheck something called IEC958?10:14
Doc_Lappythat or might google del partitions on ubuntu and see if you can do it from terminal somehow10:14
starcannonarchy008 I'd archive it, reboot (a new one will be auto created) and see if that fixes it. Then inside the folder, I'd 1 at a time replace the individual files ommiting any that replicate the problem10:14
ubuntu_install vista again? that will take a while....10:14
jribubuntu_: you should be able to do that during the ubuntu install iirc otherwise use gparted10:14
ubuntu_oh man.10:14

Doc_Lappybut that's what I ended up doing when I made that mistake once10:15
starcannonarchy008 the only reason I'd archive it is to give me the chance to a: find out the cause, and b: preserve as many of my custom settings as possible10:15

Doc_Lappyjrib he just messed up I'd say and didn't finish the install then started the install over again10:17
starcannonarchy008 I'd likely start by trying archiving just the ~/.gnome folder as previously suggested, you can always archive other folders if that doesn't do it. Remember ~/ is home, and . (dot) prefix is hidden CTRL+H reveals them10:17

Doc_Lappyyes and for good practice if your into programming you may also use like exampleFile.txt10:20

archy008starcannon - one more question - I have more gnome folders - .gnome, .gnome2 and .gnome2_private10:21
Slurpeerename -nv 's/ /_/' * ?10:21
Doc_Lappyslurpee what are you wanting to do with the files?10:21
ubuntu_I have Windows Vista installed and Ubuntu, whats the easiest way to delete ubuntu and the partitions all  together as tho Ubuntu was never on my drive?10:21
Slurpeeremove spaces with _10:21
ubuntu_so I can install again10:21
jribSlurpee: yes, that will just tell you what it would do.  Remove the -n to actually do it10:21
archy008starcannon what does that mean? and the .gnome is empty.. well it has only an apps folder with some google earth .desktop file10:21
starcannonarchy008 its probably statistically advantageous to do them one at a time till you find the problem child10:21
nottherei just installed latest kernel for ubuntu,feels great ,but ati fglrx drivers still are slow as hell, i went back to default ati drivers, i have a asus 4850 ,will they ever fix those issues ?10:21
Slurpeerename -v 's/ /_/'10:21
ortsvorsteherubuntu_: insert the install cd and create all partitions new10:21
jribSlurpee: If you want to translate all spaces not just "a space", then append 'g' to your replacement command...10:22
Doc_Lappyoh ouch, ya I don't know how to do that in a simple cmd10:22
jribSlurpee: run it with -n first.10:22
Slurpee?10:22
ubuntu_but that leaves the old partitions there when I do that...I am at the install screen now10:22
jribSlurpee: I have no idea what your question mark is for.  Do you have a question?10:22
Slurpeeyes10:22
jribSlurpee: then just ask it10:22
starcannonarchy008 r-click the folder choose "create archive" then after its finished, delete the source folder; reboot and see if it's fixed; when you find the folder that is guilty, start going through its files in a similar fashion10:22
Slurpeecan you tell me the command?10:22
Doc_Lappyshould be a way though with wildcard and a rename cmd somehow, good luck slurpee10:22
jribSlurpee: I told you the command already and you repeated it to me.10:23
Slurpeenot sure what you mean by append 'g'10:23
nottherethe question is , ati drivers work very well at 8.04 ubuntu ,but not in 9.04 or 9.10 even with the latest kernel, why is that ?10:23
Slurpeesee I have found like 20 methods of doing this10:23
ortsvorsteherSlurpee: you ever heard of an sed command?10:23
Slurpeeall totally differnt10:23
jribSlurpee: did you read what else I told you when I told you you might want to append 'g'?  Is that what you want or not?10:23

MadpilotSlurpee, there are command-line tools for that sort of sequential renaming - check gthumb for a photo batch renaming gui, though10:36
stsmDoc_Lappy, i was hoping this was covered in the printing settings, its not conveniant to make stuff transparent before printing10:36
andguen1starcannon: or just just use VPN and never open it at all. :)10:36
Natovrfirecrotch, hmm, I'd just like it to be on the old Ubuntu so I can modify it easily, and so on...10:36
MadpilotSlurpee, f-spot might have a similar function, but i can't stand f-splat and never use it :)10:37

Dr_Willisubuntu_:  it dosent ahve to be complex.   a / and a swap partition are about all you need.. or let the installer auto-partion.10:37
Guest7436 hi10:37
Doc_Lappyoh stsm nevermind I thought you meant your screen10:37
Natovrfirecrotch, and if my new ubuntu breaks from some sort of weird thing I did (which I will do with it), I might lose the ability to modify GRUB.10:37
andguen1starcannon: Try Hamachi VPN, ridiculously easy to use, easier then opening up router ports10:37
starcannonandguen1 not being flaming or anything, just explaining my reasoning10:37
firecrotchNatovr: At the very last screen of the installer, before you commit to installing, there is an "Advanced" button, which has the option to not install GRUB10:38
NatovrAhhh, right10:38
jribSlurpee: you aren't understanding my question I guess.  Say you have photo1 photo2 and photo4.  Do you want these to be renamed to photo0001 photo0002 and photo0004 or do you want them to be renamed to photo0001 photo0002 and photo000310:38
ubuntu_Dr_Willis it doesn't wanna auto partition, it thinks I still have several operating systems installed though I deleted all partitions10:38
starcannonadnguen1 for real? cool, I'll definitely look at that, afk a minute while I google10:38
andguen1starcannon: No worries, same. :)10:38
NatovrThank you, firecrotch ^_^10:38
stsmDoc_Lappy, if you meant my screen it still doesnt make any sense lol10:38

NatovrOK then10:38

ubottuDoc_Lappy: coffee is a caffeinated beverage made by filtering hot water through ground up roasted beans of the coffee plant. Flavouring to taste such as milk or cream, sugar or sweetener are often added afterwards. Not to be confused with !java10:41
ortsvorsteher;)10:41
Doc_Lappywhat kind of printer is it stsm10:42
ubuntu_<--I want some coffee !!! :)10:42
Doc_Lappyif it's hp then when you install the drivers or cd if you have one that is for linux which I think I did and lost I think it gives you some options but not sure how much10:42
ubuntu_Hey the Partitions came back after I deleted them!!!???10:43
nottheredoes anyone knows how to fix the slow issue with the ati drivers10:43
stsmDoc_Lappy, psc2105, i had to use hpoj, hplip didnt work for some reason10:43

Slurpeei am documenting them  :)10:44
andguen1ubuntu_: if you want the whole drive completely wiped, look into dban (dariks boot and nuke). Its a very dangerous utility, but if you want a really really clean drive, its a great free way to get it done10:44
Doc_LappyI'm not very familiar with printer settings I just got mine hooked up the other day a hp copy/printer so now I can upload my drawings to my personal website10:44

insmodmake sure it lists the propriatary driver not the free one10:50

Doc_Lappyany perks to doing that which I'm not aware of10:50

stsmDoc_Lappy, its nice to test stuff or to be able to use windows without rebooting, etc10:50
notthereubuntu software center cant download10:51
starcannonDoc_Lappy, whether to dual boot or not to dual boot, that is the question, whether tis better to something the slings and arrows... okay for real, I use Virtual Box, I don't game on it, so for my purposes it works great in those instances where I need a real Internet Explorer, Active X, or Wine lets me down10:51

starcannonDoc_Lappy I run all my windows apps using Wine, including Office 2007 (fully functional) and a whole wack of other apps, indeed I only use virtualbox when I need it to deal with a clients windows centric issue10:52
firecrotchSlurpee: that one is going to give you a problem with more than 10 files10:52
Doc_Lappyso I'm in agreement with you there10:52

slhsenerUSUL: I was thinking maybe adding the user to a certain group might help, but i couldn't find one looks like it11:26
pradeepgrawity: i guess it's tty crash11:27
jribSlurpee: because when I gave you the command, I told you that if you understood it, it would be trivial to make it do what you want.  This way you actually learn something11:27
erUSULslhsen: no there is no such group... cpu scling does not use a special /dev/ group permissions wont help11:27
slhsenerUSUL: ok thanks anyway11:28
erUSULslhsen: no problem11:28
Slurpeei have another interesting rename question....what if I have photo(1), photo(2), photo(3).  how can i remove the () and make it photo1, photo2, photo311:31
jribSlurpee: same way you removed spaces11:31
Slurpeerename -v 's/\ /\)/g' * ?11:32
jribSlurpee: kind of, in 's/FOO/BAR/g' the FOO is what you want to replace and the BAR is what you want to replace it with (leave empty to just delete).  Remember add -n to check that the command does what you want without actually doing it.  Then if it does what you want, you can run it without -n to actually do it11:33
andguen1Slurpee: keep in mind that any of the back slashes there are "protecting" the character after it to make sure it is counted as part of the text rather than part of the command11:34

Doc_Lappystarcannon: I got ya an email sent so you have my email and can just reply when you get a chance to explain about vmware and getting things to work with wine11:43
appsfor example they say autosuspend usb wake11:44
yoshxhello11:44
appsby pressing U button11:44
firecrotchandguen1: Hamachi uses the 5.0.0.0/8 network for its IP addresses, a network that is not allocated to them by IANA11:44
andguen1grawity: while I agree that open source is better, closed source isn't always mean its a bad idea11:44
Guest56808hello anyone??????/11:44
nogagplzDoc_Lappy, google for vmware, the appdb, and the wine faq should help you much quicker than waiting for email reply11:44
appsSuggestion: increase the VM dirty writeback time from 5.00 to 15 seconds with:11:45
apps  echo 1500 > /proc/sys/vm/dirty_writeback_centisecs11:45
appsThis wakes the disk up less frequently for background VM activity11:45
=== Guest56808 is now known as brb
firecrotchandguen1: 5.0.0.0/8 is currently reserved by IANA for future use - it is not proper for Hamachi to arbitrarily decide that they can just use that network range11:45
=== brb is now known as Guest44743
starcannonJameson is doing it's job woot11:45
firecrotchandguen1: IANA will likely want to allocate it in the future, and when they do so, everyone using Hamachi is going to have problems11:45
appsany ideas? thanks :)11:46
Doc_Lappywell vmware probably but wine tricks I need her help probably and not in a big rush I dual boot with a cool version of winxp pro last edition11:46

praveenbut i scare to lose my data while installing Ubuntu11:57
yalupraveen: nothing like a good backup11:57
LogicalDashpraveen, reasonable enough; make a backup11:57
przemo_onepraveen in order to install ubuntu u need to have some free unpartitioned disk space for linux partition11:57
Dr_Willispraveen:  lets just state for the record that your hard drives COULD die at any time.. :)11:57
Dr_Willispraveen:  anything you got thats impornatnat.. shouldbe backed up..11:57
andguen1praveen: The other option is the wubi installer which you run while you are in windows. It just creates a file inside windows rather then resizing partitions.11:58
Doc_Lappyyou shouldn't praveen just be sure to pick to install them side by side as the default is I believe when installing and at the partition stage, although a backup of anything important isn't a bad idea11:58
Dr_Willispraveen:  or instead of wubi. Install virtualbox on the windows system and run ubuntu inside virtualbox11:58
przemo_onepraveen before you begin backup your essential data, because the is allways a risk11:58
andguen1Dr_Willis: that too (although I hear Wubi is easier)11:59

chrizthophow ?12:10
przemo_onelisbon if after booting you see your drive than it's all right12:10
grawitychrizthop: 2.6.1, get from Pidgin website.12:10
grawitychrizthop: But only Google Talk so far.12:10
firecrotchSlurpee: working on it :)12:10
grawityjpds: Pidgin has their own PPA.12:11
chrizthophmm in yahoo??12:11
lisbonprzemo_one: No. All the installer detects is the usb with the installer on it.12:11
BooStarhello12:11
grawitychrizthop: Yahoo's coming sometime later.12:11
Doc_Lappygoogle talk has a linux cam?12:11
chrizthopjpds in karmic is it?12:11
Doc_LappyI did see yahoo version of linux but tried the deb and it wouldn't install on my ubuntu12:12
chrizthophmm sori guys i am just really noob here12:12
Doc_Lappydon't know why12:12
grawitychrizthop: You can get 2.6.1 in Jaunty too - go to http://pidgin.im/download/ubuntu/ and foolow the instructions.12:12
BooStarim using dhcp3-server ant it wont start up automaticly is there someone who know about this problem?12:12
Dr_Willisyahoo's official linux client - was quite quite quite old last i checked12:12
chrizthopthanks grawity i will try12:12
grawitychrizthop: But like I already said, it only has voice/webcam support for XMPP (Google Talk)12:13
Doc_Lappypidgin should be just an upgrade or a wget cmd12:13
chrizthophmm ok!12:13
chrizthopthanks12:13
grawityDoc_Lappy: It is.12:13
andguen1BooStar: Sounds like something for the #ubuntu-server channel12:13
Doc_Lappybut that works too12:13
przemo_onelisbon i dont have an experience in that. maybe you should change something in bios like ide emulation on/off. never tested - just suggestion. or you hardware is so new, and there is no driver in the kernel. get the latest linux distribution. check google for support. does linux and which supports your hardware.12:13
grawityDoc_Lappy: You just add Pidgin's repo, and then it shows up as a upgrade.12:13
Doc_Lappyit actually is already there with default12:13
Doc_Lappyyeah that's what I thought12:13
BooStarandguen1: ok, thanks12:14
bullgard4Doc_Lappy: Gajim asks me to report an error. What have I to fill in the form http://trac.gajim.org/newticket for Reporter > Your () username?12:14
lisbonprzemo_one: Ive been running gentoo on this machine for 3 years, so I know it should be possible. This is getting irritating now.12:14
przemo_onelisbon so ubuntu is not working whth your hardware :)12:14
Doc_Lappyoh I see bullgard4 and why you calling it gajim, its just gaim or used to be until they renamed it pidgin12:15
grawityDoc_Lappy: No, Gaim and Gajim are different programs.12:15
Doc_LappyOH okay thanks grawity12:15
Doc_Lappydidn't know that gajim was a program12:15
lisbonprzemo_one: Its looking that way ...12:15
przemo_onelisbon may i ask what is your hardware? chipset and ide/sata controller. mobo name is fine12:15
jacobian_I have very few applets for the panel12:16
bullgard4Doc_Lappy: Gajim says: "Remote contact's identity not verified. Click the shield button for more details." What is the "shield button" of Gajim?12:16
jacobian_Is there some package I need to add to get things like terminal applets etc.12:16
lisbonprzemo_one: erm, Im not really sure. Its a clevo D900k.12:16
bullgard4Gajim says: "Remote contact's identity not verified. Click the shield button for more details." What is the "shield button" of Gajim?12:16
grawitybullgard4: Look for a "shield" picture in gajim's window12:16
ouaadiSALUT TOUS LE MONDE12:17
firecrotchSlurpee: i=1; for x in *; do mv $x photo_`printf "%04d" $i`.jpg; i=$(( $i+1 )); done;12:17
jacobian_Specifically I mean when I try to use the "Add New Items..."12:17
Doc_LappyI've never used gajim bullgard4, only gaim which is now pidgin, so can't help ya12:17
bullgard4Doc_Lappy: Ok.12:17
grawitybullgard4: Btw, can you make a screenshot of gajim - including that message - and upload somewhere?12:17
Doc_LappyIf it's a chatting client I recommend getting pidgin instead12:17
ouaadiEXIT12:17
lisbonprzemo_one: I tried a week ago with the regular live cd and it saw the drives, but Im trying to do a soft raid, hence the alternate installer.12:18
plumaHow do I force a connected user to disconnect?12:19
bullgard4grawity: I can. But it will take a long time as this computer is new and not yet set up for sending screenshots via an Ubuntu web service12:19
Doc_Lappythat or if it's still in use go to your terminal and do an update of your system then a wget or similar of pidgen if you have an older version of ubuntu12:19
Sj4lutHello there. Does anyone know how can I connect to my modem? In windows the IP was 192.168.1.1 but now I don't know in ubuntu... I connect to the internet using pppoeconf and if I type in firefox 192.168.1.1 It tells me that this page doesn't exist. So how can I figure out what's the IP of my modem? I called the ISP help assistance number and they told me that I have to ask on ubuntu how to figure out what's the modem ip since pppoeconf g12:19
grawitybullgard4: There's no "Ubuntu web service" for screenshots (at least none that I know of) :|12:19
bullgard4grawity: There is.12:20
Doc_Lappylocalhost maybe12:20
grawitybullgard4: ...then just press PrintScreen, save, uplodad to tinypic?12:20
Sj4lutDoc_Lappy: localhost?12:20
Doc_Lappyor 192.168.1.1 to get to router12:20
Sj4lutDoc_Lappy: I tried that...12:20
hunter-12всё, презашел12:21
przemo_onelisbon  soft raid??12:21
Sj4lutDoc_Lappy: it's not 192.168.1.1 anyomre...12:21
bullgard4grawity: I do not know tinypic.12:21
bzrkSj4lut: whats your computers ip?12:21
Slurpeefirecrotch: interesting12:21
Dr_WillisSj4lut:  could be http://ip# or https://ip# also..  my 'modems' dont change their config ip# unless i reset them via the little reset button on teh back12:21
Doc_Lappytry ifconfig on terminal12:21
lisbonprzemo_one: mdadm12:21
Sj4lutbzrk: if I do ifconfig it just gives me external IP12:21
firecrotchSlurpee: need any of it explained?12:21
Slurpeenot really12:21
bzrkSj4lut: then you need to set it manually to 192.168.1.212:21
grawitybullgard4: http://yfrog.com/ and http://tinypic.com/ and many others.12:21
Doc_Lappyifconfig /all ?12:21
ruby_on_tailshello12:22
Slurpeei need to rename the files a few times....remove spaces, make lower case, rename to "photo".  then I can run that command.12:22
przemo_onelisbon i dont undersand - no experience with raid12:22
bzrkSj4lut: then you will be able to connect to your router at 192.168.1.1 again12:22
Sj4lutDoc_Lappy: I'm not in windows... I only have ubuntu now12:22
SlurpeeI think that will do what I need :)12:22
Doc_Lappyyeah should be able to set it to .2 but I forget how12:22
Sj4lutBruce: how can I set my local ip to 192.168.1.2?12:22
Dr_WillisSlurpee:  the 'qmv' command is also handy for major changes.12:22
Slurpeeqmv ?12:22
bzrkSj4lut: as root ifconfig ethX 192.168.1.2 up12:22
Dr_WillisSlurpee:  it basically lets you have a list of all the file names in an editor. You use the editors search/replace/whatever tools to change the list.. you exit.. it renames them toyour new names12:23
Dr_Willis!find qmv12:23
ubottuFile qmv found in r-cran-mvtnorm, renameutils12:23
Slurpeeintersting12:23
przemo_onelisbon so ubuntu detects drive (s) but installer dont12:23
Sj4lutbzrk: even thoug I'm now connected via pon dsl-provider?12:23
Dr_WillisSlurpee:  i also cheat and use wine and 'bulk rename utility'  or the rox-filer  file manager on linux. it has some nice rename bulk features12:23
bzrkSj4lut: youll lose your net for the time being12:23
Slurpeei need to do it on remote server12:24
Doc_Lappybzrk thanks I didn't know it was that easy of a command12:24
Sj4lutbzrk: ok12:24
loloftheringsHi all, is there a quick (command line prefered) way to completely remove gnome from a fresh installation?12:24
lisbonprzemo_one: I guess you could say that. I mean the installer on the live cd saw them, but not now on the alternate.12:24
jribloloftherings: remove some library all of gnome depends on I guess12:24
Dr_Willis!removegnome12:24
ubottuWant to remove gnome/kde/xfce completely? Look at debfoster, it's a great help12:24
Sj4lutbzrk: but I'm still connected12:24
Dr_Willis!purekde12:24
ubottuIf you want to remove all !Gnome packages and have a default !Kubuntu system follow the instructions here « https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PureKDE »12:24
loloftheringsnah, I want dwm12:24
loloftheringsthanks12:25
przemo_onelisbon so use the live cd :)12:25
mrwes!puregnome12:25
ubottuIf you want to remove all !KDE packages, type « sudo apt-get remove kdelibs4c2 kdelibs5-data && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » into a !terminal12:25
Doc_LappyI would have thought it would have needed something else in there to stay permanent12:25
bzrkSj4lut: you can add a route to 192.68.1.0/24 too if you dont want to disconnect12:25
Sj4lutbzrk: how can I do that?12:25
lisbonprzemo_one: Yeah, but then I cant set up mdadm.12:26

bzrkSj4lut: route add net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 ethX12:27
przemo_onelisbon no experience cant help12:27
Doc_Lappywb starcannon12:27
icerootis it possible to use ssh -X in a ssh -X session? i cant connect the target-pc directly but want to start x-applications from it12:27
starcannonwhats up Doc!12:27
grawityiceroot: It should.12:27
Doc_Lappyhow original :P lol12:27
Dr_Willisiceroot:  i belive ive read on the ssh docs about doing that.12:27
starcannonyeah, i'm tired, thats the best you get for now12:27
grawityiceroot: ssh -v, if you have any problems12:27
noMaster_anybody know how to make hotkeys for Terminal? For example Super+S is apt-get, etc.12:27
icerootgrawity: i forgot to mention, the pc in the middle did not have x installed12:27
bzrkSj4lut: or with the ip tools: ip route add 192.168.1.0/24 dev ethX12:27
Dr_Willisiceroot:  ssh -X back to the original machine and see whata happens. :)12:28
jribnoMaster_: most people just use aliases12:28
grawityiceroot: You might try it like this:  ssh -fN -L 2345:machine-b:22 machine-a; ssh -oHostkeyAlias=machine-b localhost -p 2345 -X12:28
=== subzero2000_ is now known as subzero2000
ortsvorsteher!hotkeys | noMaster_12:29
ubottunoMaster_: Keyboard shortcuts can be set in System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts. If your multimedia keys don't work with that, try the 'keytouch' package, explained at http://keytouch.sourceforge.net - See !Keyboard for changing layouts12:29
icerootgrawity: so its a ssh-tunnel?12:29
grawityiceroot: Yeah.12:29
Sj4lutbzrk: I tried route add net 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 eth0 and I get net: unknown host12:29
icerootgrawity: sound great, thx12:29
starcannoniceroot you may need to use screen as well, can't remember. I do know that if you do "ssh -X someapp" that you will see the application on your remote desktop, NOT on the host desktop12:30
firecrotchSj4lut: it's route add -net ....12:30
icerootstarcannon: screen for that?12:31
shaiHow can I use ~/.gtkrc-2.0 to change the font size inside applications (like gnome-terminal)? When I use gtk-font-name = "geneva 12" ; it just changes the size of the menu fonts.12:31
starcannonyeah I think, its been a long time, but I seem to remember using a clever screen trick (I didn't think it up I used someone elses deal) and ssh -X I was able to open an X app on the host computer from a remote location, and the window was open on the host, not the remote12:32
praveenhow to install ubuntu http://dpaste.com/101917/12:32
icerootstarcannon: that is what normal ssh -X is doing12:33
icerootstarcannon: ssh -X host and then "firefox" will start the firefox from the server on your "client"12:33
starcannoniceroot ssh -X will open the gui on the remote computer, the one your on; but on the host, where the app lives, it will just be a process running in the background, I do that all the time with transmission actually12:34
icerootstarcannon: yes, i know that12:34
Doc_Lappypraveen why is it you have so many partition on your windows anyway when its only a 80gig hd?12:34
Doc_Lappyjust curious12:34
icerootstarcannon: my idea was  A=my client, B=a server in the internet without x, C= my pc at home. i want to to start an app from C on A over B12:35
starcannoniceroot nod, sorry, guess I made it all muddy in my first statement, anyway, I don't remember the clever trick, but google around about screen a bit, I really do remember using it to reverse the situation12:35
starcannoniceroot, ah, okies, I got an idea12:35
GekzI have an issue. I cannot put a panel on the bottom of the screen12:35
GekzI click bottom12:35
Gekzand it moves to the top12:35
praveenDoc_Lappy, yeah but i made the partition long years back and never ever think to install ubuntu.12:35
icerootstarcannon: and i got the solution :)12:35
Gekzjust below the top panel12:35
icerootstarcannon: i am using ssh tunnel12:35
JanKunderaaaaaaaaaa12:36
Gekzthe same thing happens with avant-window-navigator12:36
Gekz:<12:36
pukekomdadm - raid-1, does the array (/dev/md0) have a diff UUID than that of it members /dev/sd* ?12:36
Jan_JK_Kunderbbbb12:36
Gekzthis is Ubuntu 9.10, and it worked before my last reboot lol12:36
icerootGekz: #ubuntu+112:36
starcannoniceroot, ssh into C, from C ssh -X into B, and the app will be open in a window on C12:37
starcannoniceroot, or it should12:37
starcannoniceroot, I'd have to try it once to see
