B3rz3rk3rcan anyone reccomend free Usenet servers.. my ISP doesnt provide access as part of its fee, and its between usenet and WoW for my $15 a month :p00:01
canthus13B3rz3rk3r: Free? Depends on what you're looking for.00:01
a_Jordan_U: when I try to update, I get this error. "Could not download all repository indexes" and in a box it says "Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/edgy/universe/binary-i386/Packages  404 Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.140 80]00:01
a_Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."00:01
B3rz3rk3rcanthus13, alt.binaries00:01
canthus13B3rz3rk3r: There are tons of free text servers.00:01
B3rz3rk3rcanthus13, i know there are lots of free txt ones00:02
canthus13B3rz3rk3r: No such thing as free alt.b*00:02
canthus13err alt.binaries.*00:02
B3rz3rk3rcanthus13, :( thats what i thought00:02
Jordan_Ua_: Are you running ubuntu 6.10 ( Edgy ) ?00:03
canthus13B3rz3rk3r: Every once in a while you might find a free server test for a few weeks.00:03

B3rz3rk3rcanthus13, thx for the info00:04
shawn_InitHello you here?00:04
Jordan_Ua_: If so you should install a supported version of Ubuntu because Edgy is no longer supported ( no security updates either ). If not then you have a problem with your sources.lst00:04

ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux, except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus00:05
Jordan_Ua_: Can you pastebin the output from "lsb_release -a" and the contents of the file /etc/apt/sources.lst ?00:05
KerioPackage xubuntu-desktop is not installed, so not removed00:05
shawn_Can you access a proxy server from a computer thats in "Lock Screen" mode00:05

uboxwhat is the name of the program run via the add/remove software thing in the applications menu?00:07
Keriook00:07
Jordan_UKerio: "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop && sudo apt-get autoremove" might do it, but be carefull it doesn't remove anything you really want00:07
SeaPhorshawn_, are you sure you stated your question correctly?00:07
canthus13olivier83: Did you check your speaker connections, make sure they're turned on, etc?00:07
captainkirkbecause my system is using up memory and crashing after about 1 hour, just did a ps -ef and there are 100's of processes named nmbd00:07
=== perrottino is now known as perrottino2
a_Jordan_U: did you get my flood?00:08
canthus13a_: Heh.00:08
=== perrottino2 is now known as perrottino
shawn_SeaPhor well I have a proxy server set up on my home computer and have a port forwarded with it so I can connect through it from my laptop but it didnt work today and Im wondering if that is because my computer was "Locked"00:08
ZykoticK9captainkirk, killall is the program you're looking for.  IE "killall -9 nmbd" <- I don't know what nmbd is so don't know what this will do00:08
Jordan_Ua_: No, please use pastebin00:08
Kerioit states that u already have ubuntu installed and xubuntu uninstalled even though its still xubuntu after reboot00:08
Keriothat i00:08
voxcaptainkirk: thats.. weird. are you running samba?00:08
olivier83canthus13 yes it plug in nothing is mute and im dualboot with xp and xp got sounds!!00:08
a_Jordan_U: how I use pastebin?00:08
ewpubox, gnome-app-install00:09
canthus13olivier83: Hmm.  Try a previous kernel when you boot.00:09
captainkirkyes, i am running samba and nmbd is a process of samba and yesterday i did a system update (including smaba) and now it is broken00:09

olivier83canthus13 no sounds on the previous one00:09
shawn_SeaPhor the computer that the server is running from was locked00:09
Morgansllegend2440: i will head there00:09
canthus13olivier83: But it was working before?00:09
voxcaptainkirk: sudo /etc/init.d/samba stop00:10

foofishmy weather applet doesn't ever update. my computer needs to use a proxy server to access the net, and i think it's ignoring the settings i put into gnome. how can this be fixed?00:11
SeaPhorshawn_, yes, i leave my FTP/VNC/SSH server locked all the time, i even reboot it remotely and can log back in remotely without logging in locally on the server00:11
shawn_SeaPhor then Im not sure why it wasnt working X_X00:11
Keriohow very weird, still xubuntu00:11
captainkirkand i have had 3 phone calls saying the server is down..... gota love em00:11
Kerioshould i try "sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg"00:11
canthus13olivier83: Hmm. No idea then, if the old kernel isn't doing it.00:12
Jordan_Ua_: Can you also pastebin the contents of /etc/apt/sources.lst ?00:12
ZykoticK9foofish, i "think" i read somewhere that 9.10 fixed the weather applet and that it's been broken for awhile now...00:12

crawleri stupidly enabled the restricted atheros driver, and rebooted.  now no internet, and the hardware manager lists no drivers!00:19
SeaPhorshawn_, thats kinda ... open-ended, because i know how things work i dont know for sure if you are sure of the question you're trying to ask,,, better to ask in ##networking00:19
ZykoticK9olivier83, from command line try "mplayer -ao pulse FILENAME" and/or "mplayer -ao alsa FILENAME" -- see "mplayer -ao help" for list of all audio output00:19

shawn_SeaPhor I just mean when trying to connect through my Proxy server from school firefox said "This port is not accepting connections" Could this be because the network is blocking me from accessing the Proxy Server or is it my own error in forwarding it because Im fairly sure its correct00:21
olivier83canthus13 i got 12 ouput00:21
SeaPhorshawn_, yes, the school can block that port either incomming, outgoing , or both00:21

shawn_SeaPhor what do you mean?00:23

shawn_SeaPhor so if I forward my port 80 or 8080 it would work?00:25

_Techie_is there an alternative to usign grub on a USB install as grub wont work properly as it points to a static drive location00:27

olivier83canthus13 how i do that00:29
canthus13olivier83: reboot.00:29
_Techie_how can i make a persistant USB install of ubuntu?00:29

fearfulcanthus13, olivier83 try ALSA?00:29

RoyallWhenever I start Ubuntu, Gnome-Do never has anything listed, and I have to restart it so it'll work00:32
Jordan_Ua_: They shouldn't be there, remove those lines from your sources.list, this time you need to open it with a slightly different command so that you have permissions to save the changes: "gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list"00:32
olivier83fearful yes it work before each time i install ubuntu it work for 4-5 boot and after that i lost sounds for no reason noby know how to regain sounds the only thing that work is format and reinstall ubuntu00:32

Jordan_Umdg: If you are comfortable with fluxbox ( it can be hard for a first time user ) you can install fluxbox and choose a fluxbox only session from the session menu of the login screen00:37
fearfulolivier83, thats awkward, have you checked if in the sound preferences in the bottom list 'Master' volume is there00:38
mdgJordan_U: what kind of things would I not be able to do in a fluxbox only session?00:38

Gaming4JCHello All, I've been dual booting Windows Vista and Ubuntu for some time.

Is there any validity to that?01:28

verzelnullzero the thing is, there is no eth0 device03:20
wergeldverzel, i had the same problem. it came up after i tried to make the IP of eth0 static. It worked but when I rebooted into headless mode through NX it said there were not network connections available. yet i was logged in over the network. What I did to fix it was delete all info in resolv and rc and interfaces files and then enter in my static IP info in the network manager app. rebooted a few times and all is good.03:21
mnaines1BuddhistpineappL: I am not going to sit here and argue about it.  I do not think anyone in here can help you to figure it out03:21
wergeldseems like ubuntu's network manager gets confused if you use the GUI interface and also edit the files by hand. Unsure which takes presedence but some wires got crossed.03:21
verzelwergeld the thing is that there is no desktop interface on my machine, and there is no eth003:21

InitHellovigo: yeah, it's more than likely she has the wrong audio daemon thingie selected for her mic04:03
mrmowgliokydoke, currently the ubuntu light netinstall (cli fb=false) occasionally gets past the hardware detection and hangs downloading the software repo information for us.archive.ubuntu.org04:04
Madcamper anyone know if there is a way to run ubuntu, and windows xp simultaneously off the same computer without making it virtual? Display XP on one monitor, and ubuntu on an external?04:04
vigoInitHello: I do not use Skype, but that sounds like it could be an error, or some mismatch setting on both ends that needs attention, is all in the documentation.04:04
mrmowgliother times it hangs on the hardware detection, and the graphical installer doesn't work.  Once it hung on the advanced command line installer after I configured the keyboard04:05
InitHellovigo: darn these 500 different audio systems, all because alsa and esd and whatever else developers refuse to cooperate!04:05
IdleOneInitHello: have her try the test call with the skype bot. if that works then she is good to go and you know it is on your end. if the test call fails well then you trouble shoot04:06
vigoInitHello: I will say again, I do not use Skype, I have my reasons, and they are all mine, MINE! :-)04:06
InitHelloIdleOne: yeah, her skype worked from a windows box, but not from her jaunty box04:06

ScutumIdleOne, Im not able to install windows04:13
lstarnesrelapse: you can use the alternate cd for that04:13
Jordan_U!minimal | relapse04:13
ubotturelapse: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD04:13

Synapsnot rilly as long as you can get to grub you can edit menu.lst04:16

Scutumbecause otherwise it wont recognize it as an OS when I try booting04:17
n2diyGuest18736: actually, a little slow now. Is that your zipcode in your nick?04:17
cabaro_scutum: windows installation writes over the bootloader, and you would have to reinstall GRUB. so its easier to install windows first and then ubuntu.04:17
Scutumcabaro_, Im planning on deleting linux afterwards04:17
Guest18736no, i am testing the crunchbang  distro and this is the one by default04:17
cody_Lets say... I were to upgrade my BIOS to a whole new card (So i can use a dedicated graphics card and the like) Would i have to reinstall ubuntu?04:18

IdleOneScutum: you are having a problem installing windows correct, install linux, then install windows ( since you plan on deleting linux anyway ) no worries about grub getting over written and then you can use whatever windows uses to delete/format the linux partition04:20

Satzoeradicus not certain.. not much experience with wubi04:27

maestrojedI build a test web server with Ubuntu. Remotely I sftp to it. I was thinking of running webdav. I would have to run it on the vhost /var/www so that I could access all of my accounts. But this is not a production server so I am curious... Any reason (security) I shouldn't do this?04:45
cody_Satzo: Where do i find it?04:45
Satzocody_, do you 1. own windows and 2. have a spare hard disc?04:46
Satzoif you do, then install windows to update04:46
LinuX2halfsatzo, which use more RAM vmware or Vbox?04:46
Satzoits alot easier than explaining how to make a PE windows cd04:46
cody_Satzo: 1 Yes. It came with Windows XP. 2: No i do not own a spare Hard Drive (unless a Flash Drive counts :p)04:46
SatzoLinuX2half, no idea.. ive never used vmware as a virtualization04:46
Satzocody_, well if u want to update bios bad enough, image your ubuntu(or save /home) and drop windows on it04:47
Satzothen put ubuntu back on04:47
AnonymustSatzo, idk if you read this, but I said that I have uninstalled and reinstalled ALSA. I read somewhere that people on Macbook Pro's were having the problem, it's a quick fix I guess, but still, I don't have any sound..04:47

cody__leaf-sheep: Thank you so much.04:58
scunizicody__: keep shrinking .. root only needs to be between 8-12 gigs.. leave the rest for /home and at least 1 gig for /swap04:58

leaf-sheepcody__: I mean different hard drive.  Sorry.bette04:59

cody__I only have a 60GB hard drive :p05:00
Satzocody__, get out of the 90s :P05:01
JRWoodwardMSWExcept for PHP MyAdmin, yes. What I want are links to the things like admin pages, php.ini, etc.05:01
cody__Satzo: LOL I should right? :P I have a Emachines T4200 made way back when :P05:01
cody__It shipped with winXP though :P05:01
scunizicody__: no leave it some room .. with 60 gigs use 8 gigs for / (root) and 1 gig for /swap and the rest for /home05:01
leaf-sheepSatzo: I'm not sure.  Doing it via commands would always take awhile.  I generally tar my ~/ to external drive. Making backup and whatnot.05:02
cody__scunizi: Okay, i will set it up to that after this finishes this current one haha05:02

cody__Well actually, it is on a DVD but still05:03
Satzoi ask this because you can do the things you wish there easily05:03
scunizicody__: I'm not sure what a windows install will need.. 10 gigs?.. personally I would run windows in a virtual machine with virtualbox.. that way you don't have to reboot to bounce back and forth.. however vm's of windows don't run games well05:03
leaf-sheepSatzo: Mainly because I'm using a laptop (no separate internal hard drive for me. ;3)05:03

nic1got a patch file confuse-2.6-r3.ebuild to recover from the error i am getting from the confuse package. How do i need to patch it?06:48
nic1please someone help me06:48
halberdI don't see why OS developers have to code name everything06:48
halberdit's easier for me to remember 9.10 than "karmic koala"06:48
leaf-sheepTeclys: Pretty much yes.  Assuming you did set up port forwarding on the router.06:48
Teclysbut karmic koala sounds so cute06:48
indushalberd: can you try reassign another key and see if that works06:48
Teclysleaf-sheep, port forwarding is exact;y what im in the process of06:49
Seventoeshalberd: a google search for "9.10" brings up more than ubuntu. a search for "karmic koala" is going to be a little more narrowed06:49
dsnydersHelp! my machine's in a coma!  I can ping it but no response on keyboard.  ssh hangs.06:49
halberdSeventoes, a search for "ubuntu 9.10" would get you what you need06:49
jony123Anyone here know how to setup a smtp server and could help me with an error i get06:50

indusActionParsnip: your point is different to what iam saying08:15
indusActionParsnip: it worked 100 percent before, but later it didnt08:15
LSD|NinjaThe only thing the 690G has going for it in this context is that its X1250 graphics core is supported by the open source radeon driver, the 2000-derived cores in the 7xxG chipset still isn't yet.08:16

LSD|Ninjaindus: They're essentially the same except the 785G has an uprated graphics core (AMD call it a "4200" but it's the same basic 2400XT-derived core as the the 780 only with a higher default clock speed) and the SB710 south bridge. The SB710 is slightly better than the 700, but both are light years ahead of the 60008:26

edmooreHi. I've decided I don't really need the desktop environment on my eeepc most of the time - I'm happy just to launch any gui programs I need straight from the command line. Is there a way to make this behaviour default? I.e. command line until I want firefox or whatever.10:47
ikoniaedmoore: disable X10:48
ikoniaedmoore: but that means you'll have to manually startX everytime you want an X11 application10:48
ablmfSo it asks to add "mem=xxxM vmalloc=256M" to grub.conf to reserver that memory10:48
induswell , thenn you cant start gui stuff10:48
edmooreikonia: I know it's something vaguely to do with that but I'm not sure specifically how one does it?10:48
chez_Gnimsh:  do i have to somehow get the sound file to not go to playback but go to capture or something ?10:48
