ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports.00:47

coz_jode,  in terminal type   alsamixer01:55
kiyouracoz_, that's not the same as amizer?01:55
coz_kiyoura,  not really   alsamixer gives you a sort of gui representation of sliders01:55
kiyouraoh, ok01:56
coz_jode,  if anything is muted  just  move with arrows buttons to highlight that volume control and hit the letter  "m" on the key board to un mute or mute01:56
coz_jode,   controls are done with arrow buttons01:56
jodecoz_: no channels are muted01:57

coz_Ziber,   I am a real dunce when it comes to this stuff :)  so I suggest   ##linux  channel  just type    /join ##linux  where you type here02:01

cody__DaZ: Got it, and Driver "nvidia" is what it is already03:00
LinuxGuy2009Random832: If you dont have an equal amount of free hdd space equal to amountg of installed ram then upgrade the hdd.03:00
cody__;)03:00
Random832it's clearly not using the swap space, since it sometimes _does_ work and i only have like 8mb swap03:01
Random832*80003:01
DaZcody__: and change it to nv ;f03:01
cody__DaZ: Okay03:01
cody__restarting GDM now03:01
DaZnow it should "work"03:01
Random832will hibernate work with a swap file in a normal filesystem, or does it have to be a partition03:02
macoRandom832: for now, it has to be a partition03:02
Random832ok03:02
LinuxGuy2009Random832: swap file is for when you run low on physical ram03:02
anhnoidayvancho_dgfgdf03:02
Random832is there a way to make it use a partition ONLY to hibernate?03:02
Random832@LinuxGuy2009, you clearly have no clue how hibernation works, so can you just stop?03:02
macoRandom832: there is experimental swap file support which *may* be turned on in karmic (i'm not sure)03:02
Random832@maco, ok, is there a way to make it use a swap partition _only_ to hibernate, and not for normal paging?03:03
cody__DaZ: It is in a resolution of 680x420?03:03
LinuxGuy2009Random832: Im sorry I do use hybernate it saves everything in ram including all running apps to disk.03:03
cody__D:03:03
cody__:( It look horrible03:03
Random832since otherwise no matter how big i make it there's the possibility it runs out03:03
cody__It looks like windows D: xD03:03
DaZcody__: nv doesn't limit resolutions03:03
Random832@LinuxGuy2009, it's not just "to disk", it's to a swap partition on linux and to hiberfil.sys on windows. A very _specific_ place on disk03:03
DaZbut ubuntu sucks :F03:03
Random832and you almost had _me_ doubting it used the swap partition >:(03:03
cody__DaZ: Well, it is right now. I can not choose 1080x920 (or the default)03:04
macoRandom832: suppose you could "swap off" while youre working then turn it on for hibernate... but why is there a possibilty it runs out? it should not be using 10gb of swap for example. youd just be thrashing03:04
DaZpastebin the output03:04
cody__more to do with xorg.conf i suppose?03:04
DaZcody__: getting nvidia driver to work03:04
Random832@maco, something doesn't have to be thrashing to use a lot of swap - it could just allocate and not use for a long time. Even if it's unlikely i'd rather be certain03:04
DaZ!find wgetpaste03:04
ubottuPackage/file wgetpaste does not exist in jaunty03:04
cody__DaZ: I know. But do i need to edit something in xorg.conf to allow the better resolution?03:04
macoRandom832: standard sizing is 2-3x the size of ram. so if you have 2gb ram, 4-6gb of swap. that should fit all of ram in there...it shouldnt use 6gb of swap AND 2gb of ram03:05
cody__!find pastebinit03:05
LinuxGuy2009Random832: Do you have a seperate root and home partition?03:05
ubottuFound: pastebinit03:05
Random832and i don't want to have to have 10gb of swap to begin with03:05
macoRandom832: i usually go with 2x. so i had 2gb ram when i installed and have 5gb swap. though now i have 4gb of ram...03:05
cody__DaZ: What do i need to do to get a higher resolution?03:05
Random832if standard sizing is 2-3x the size of ram, why did the installer only give me 800mb of swap for 3gb of ram03:05
DaZcody__: nvidia-xconfig --mode=resolution03:05
mobi-sheepmaco: That is old skool.03:05
macomobi-sheep: why?03:05
mobi-sheepmaco: Because in the past, we didn't have lot of RAM memory to begin with.03:06
LinuxGuy2009maco: 2-3x size of ram is a very old rule of thumb for 1GB or less of system ram. if you got 3 or 4gb of ram you dont even need a swap.03:06
cody__DaZ: Restarting GDM03:06
macoLinuxGuy2009: yes you do, if you want to hibernate03:06
macomobi-sheep: 2x is sensible. 1/2 is where it hibernates to. 1/2 is where it pages to.03:06
crohakonSo, I cannot hear any sounds. I just installed unbuntu.... How do I enable sound?03:06
mobi-sheepcrohakon: Try "sudo alsactl init"03:07
ZaptorO_o03:07
DaZcrohakon: you have to buy ubuntu ultimate03:07
macoDaZ: lies03:07
macocrohakon: DaZ is joking03:07
=== Xoop is now known as XStatik
DaZmaco: thank you, cpt. obvious!03:07
Random832i don't get why it's such a huge thing to ask for to have dedicated hibernate space instead of having to pray that swap doesn't overflow into it03:07
crohakonI am aware.. I may be a noob... but not that ignorant. =)03:07
macocrohakon: check your mixer levels. master, pcm, front....any of those are a common culprit03:08
DigitalKiwicorrection, you have to buy ubuntu ultimate from me ;D03:08
macocrohakon: hey its feasible...03:08
Random832is there a way to automatically make it swapon before hibernate and swapoff after hibernate?03:08
Random832*after resume i mean03:08
macocrohakon: ie958 or something like that...thats another mixer element people tend not to know to check03:08
BilliardRandom832: you could change the swapiness so it doesnt swap as much03:08
crohakonmaco: First thing I checked. =)03:08
mobi-sheepRandom832: Yes, you can. Ubuntu Ultimate have that feature! Go and buy it. :303:09
cody__DaZ: Still in that resolution03:09
DigitalKiwiRandom832: have you actually had any problem hibernating or jut being paranoid?03:09
macocrohakon: neither speakers nor headphones have any output?03:09
DaZcody__: just ignore it03:09
Random832@DigitalKiwi, yes i have had problems hibernating (but that's on only 800mb swap which is what the installer gave me)03:09
macowhat is with all the Ubuntu Ultimate jokes?03:09
crohakonmaco: correct, no out put at all.03:09
Random832@Billiard, doesn't change the basic issue which is when total memory usage exceeds the available swap space03:09
crohakonUnknown hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Generic 10de ID 5" "HDA:10ec0663,104319a3,00100001 HDA:10de0005,10de0101,00100000" "" ""03:09
cody__DaZ: I cant ignore the resolution :( Its what i look at 24/703:09
crohakonthats what that command above returned03:09
macocrohakon: yeah thats not the sort of info needed....03:10
macocrohakon: what command?03:10
voxthe next person who mentions "ubuntu ultimate" or some sort of paid-for ubuntu gets a free removal.03:10
crohakonsudo alsactl init03:10
Random832whatever, i'll set up the partition to be 4gb and forget about it until the next time i fail to hibernate03:10
DaZcody__: i told you to use it because ubuntu doesn't ship wgetpaste in the repos and i need that  command output03:10
DaZ:f03:10
mobi-sheepcrohakon: Run 'alsamixer' and ensure everything is toggled on -- If you see any blue/gray 'M' -- Press 'm' to unmute to get green '00' then ESC to save.03:10
cody__DaZ: Okay, so what do i do right now that you need?03:10
cody__let me log in to GDM irssi03:10
DaZcody__:  cd /lib/modules;find|grep nvidia03:11
macocrohakon: oh. er...ok dunno why you were told that, but whatever. "ubuntu-bug -p linux" then file the bug. then run "apport-collect -p alsa-base 12345" (replace 12345 with your bug number) to attach audio debug stuff to it03:11

Dracofodderits been a long time since I tried installing dual boot (linux and windows), does the installer have a way to resize the windows partition, or do I need to free up some disk space with other tools first?03:47
Berserkurobiwan_: Have you tried network-manager-pptp plugin?03:47
BlueyDracofodder: it should allow you to resize the windows partition03:47
BlueyDracofodder: what they don't tell you is - tht when you go to boot windows after re-sizing - you're going to get a bunch of windows errors - it'snormal - and windows will fix them....03:48
obiwan_Dracofodder: , if you got empty space you can resize, but if it's full you'll need to clean it up first03:48
DracofodderBluey: thanks, I was planning to give the install a try tomorrow, got a new laptop from work, but I cannot just wipe the whole thing and put something useful on it.  I have to have their stuff available.03:49
Berserkurobiwan_: sudo apt-get install network-manager-pptp - And after that you should be able to connect to pptp servers via the "nm-applet"03:49
obiwan_Berserkur: , i didn't know about that pluggin, but anyway i *** hate nm hehe and openssh works great, so i thought openvpn would03:49
=== patrick is now known as Guest99641
Sirisian_okay I think I figured it out. Each kernel needs it's own ram disk so I can just use update-initramfs -c -k 2.6.28-15 to make a new one right and rename it so it matches the kernel give or take and then run update-grub and it should make everything work right? It's odd that the kernel readme doesn't explain this stuff.03:49
Dracofodderobiwan_: thanks, figured that. new machine, should be good.  I was just worried I would have to go huntin some third party resizing tool. its been years since I have had to be careful to preserve the windows stuff.03:50
BlueyDracofodder: best of luck03:50

How do i log the other dead session out?03:54
Sirisian_DaZ, do you know how to do it with the ramdisk way? I'm getting an error like "update-initramfs: failed for /boot/initrd." ...03:55

pfifoXStatik, yes, i use EXIM4 for sendmail binary for use with php5's mail() function, it installed smoothly and was up and running in no time (that is if your looking for a MTA)04:46
peterrrshauno: I'll give it a shot, but I partitioned this drive before using MAC and it was READ-ONLY04:46
StockBrianbobino, I've seen generic Dell K/M's load up fine on many versions of Linux. Forgive the silly question but you've done all the silly troubleshooting like swapping USB ports and stuff?04:46

bobinostockbrian: in the boot sequence the errors strart popping up after ''loading blue tooth''04:48

BerserkurFor hdaps; What is the recommended module to use. Is it the kernel one (2.6.31) or is it still the tp_smapi modules?04:49

pfifowebbb82, yeah it says you need to get the absolute latest source for kdelibs, which requires you to use subversion to fetch the package05:03

StockBrianbobino, many internet searches show that after booting into Linux, unplugging and replugging keyboards sometimes works.05:04
Flannelsteve2: You can, it just doesn't display anything while you're typing it for security reasons05:04
StockBrianbobino, it's not a solution, but it might allow further troubleshooting.05:04
Rabbitbunnysteve2: It doesn't show what you type, you are typing.05:04

steve2i typed it in and it just says try again i only used 1 pass when i set it up so I figure that should be it05:07
StockBrianbobino, yeah, without any inquiries to linux, I can't see what's wrong. I suggested digging more around the internet for options.. many say unplug-replug works...   Good Luck.05:07

ChrononSo, after rebooting my Eee PC running Jaunty won't run in anything but 800x600.  I restored xorg.conf and it didn't help.  I currently suspect my monitors.xml needs fixing. . .05:10
mb_again_kilo: crontab -e will edit the crontab of the current user. When you save the file you will have a new crontab. It is usually better for hourly/daily scripts to link them into cron.hourly etc and let the system babysit them05:10

mb_again_kilo: write the shell script (perl bash whatever) the normal way so it does the work and either writes the result to a known location or prints it as standard output. Put the script in /usr/local/bin. When all is working clean, you go to, say, /etc/cron.hourly/ and do ln -s /usr/local/bin/myworkerscript that creates the symlink. Then the cron process picks it up just after every hour and runs it. As said above, details in all the man05:15

pfifohipitihop, off the top of my head i bet the UUID in menu.lst dosent match the UUID of the drive, but it could also be that it cant find the kernel or initrd.img05:31
Jordan_Uhipitihop: If it's the only drive then I think yes, but try tab completion to list the drives05:32

BlueyKajros: It's the previous kernel versions05:43

Blueylilzeus: but I'd never heard the phrase "zero-width" character...do you mean null?07:10
lilzeusso apps which know how to display a zero-width space character will show you nothing...it will be invisible, apps that don't, like notepad, replace it with something else so you can at least find them07:10

Kalidarnis that because it's using binary libs that came with it? i used getlibs to get the libs for it as it's a 32bit application (and im running it on an amd64) system07:22

Kalidarnit might not be in the actual default kernel Shaan7_07:31
mneptoksami__: ^^ in a terminal ^^07:31
KalidarnShaan7_: you need to possibly recompile your kernel and make sure it's above 2.6.2807:32
sami__if you mean x server setting ,it's installed already07:32
Kalidarn"modprobe gspca_sonixj" should be enough07:32

ActionParsnipFluxD: you could set its to have a proxy of some made up IP, it wont connect then08:11
Taroven1tehbaut: It's more efficient that way. While a little confusing, from a programmer's perspective it's a choice between yet another check when the package's description is loaded or the more cpu-friendly "Let's just display the button and try to load the screeny anyway" approach.08:12
ActionParsnipbabak: lsb_release -c08:12
FluxDActionParsnip, what if it doesnt have proxy support?08:12
lilzeusActionParsnip: do you know of an app which can expose zero-width spaces, the unicode character, so that I can delete them?08:12

ActionParsniplilzeus: grep possibly08:12
FluxDDesertEagle, how do I figure out what port it uses?08:12
DesertEaglenetstat08:12
ActionParsnipFluxD: then you will have to configure your firewall to block the app / port it uses08:13
tehbautTaroven1: as I said, there should be a preference that allows auto-downloading (just so we can minimize the annoyance) ;)08:13

I'm running into one issue with the official guide though.. When using modprobe to do this: "sudo modprobe dm-mod" I get this: "FATAL: Module dm_mod not found." .. any idea why that08:20

illiomneptok: No .. the only way to make it install encrypted LVM for you is to use the entire disc.. checked the alternative installer yesterday..08:27
FluxDtehbaut, I know one for firefox08:27
Taroven1illio: "Load the LVM module - modprobe dm-mod. You can skip this step in Jaunty (9.04) because the dm-mod module is compiled into the kernel."08:27

Taroven1Cool. :)08:28
mneptokillio: LVM encryption should not include /boot, as you may need a kernel for LVM disaster recovery08:28
mneptokillio: that's obviously impossible if you encrypt the entire disc.08:29
illiomneptok: then show me where, because according to every guide I've seen the alternative installer assumes it can use the entire disc..08:29
mneptokillio: i'm using it now08:29
illiomneptok: well of course it can't encrypt /boot.. but it still demands the entire disc to setup encrypted lvm.. it doesn't allow you to have other systems running alongside Linux08:30
=== anthony is now known as Guest87121
mneptokillio: it *can* encryot /boot. you just shouldn't.08:30
illiomneptok: you won't be able to boot if you do.. so that would not make much sense08:31
mneptokillio: like i say, i'm using dm-crypt now. and only 2 of 4 partitions are encrypted08:31
illiomneptok: just found the direct quote from the interface (Under Partitioning method:): "Guided - use entire disk and set up encrypted LVM" ..08:32
Jordan_Uillio: That if you choose guided08:33
Jordan_Uillio: You can still choose to instead set it up manually08:33
illioJordan_U: yeah okay.. sure that you can do.. but the installer still doesn't really do it for you.. that's not really much easier than just doing everything yourself form the live cd.. but sure if that's what mneptok meant, then yes.. then you can use the alternative installer08:34

icarus-c_like when i clicked Places ->  Documents,  thunar jumps out instead of nautilus09:01
Taroven1KB1JWQ: Quite aware.09:01
mattgyverAhh... that i dont know but maybe check within the gconf-editor09:01
Taroven1Nobody's responding there though =P09:01
mattgyvermight be a key you can change there to call thunar as opposed to nautilus09:01
KB1JWQTaroven1: AKA "We don't talk about that here."09:01
sami__ActionParsnip > are you there ??09:02
mattgyverpaolob_, ive learned over time that nautiuls really kinda just sucks for file sharing, if you have the time to figure it out look into setting the shares up directly within samba's smb.conf09:02
icarus-c_mattgyver: and it opens nautilus if i click on icons on desktop09:03
mattgyvericarus-c_, maybe you can go into preferred applications in the preferences menu somewhere09:03
mattgyverno you cant09:04
mattgyverhey icarus-c_ i think i found it out09:04
icarus-c_mattgyver: huh?09:04

Nehtaropurpefool: they're about 4 years old, and didn't have problems until recently.  Of course, I've had Ubuntu for a while, so it's probably either a problem with 9.10 or the speaker just dying down.  I have no other computers or OSes to test it with, but would testing it in virtualbox work?09:22

roothDoes anyone know how to disable the blinking of the WLAN-LED on my HP Compaq 8710w laptop? Whenever there is traffic on the WLAN the LED blinks, and since it is located on the top of the keyboard/computer it bugs me =( Did not have this in my older installation, 7.10, some things may ...10:30
frogzoooic10:30
rooth... have happend since then though =)10:30
wavezmattgyver: trying to make my audio work. Can't figure out what chipset I have.10:30
lucentrooth: electrical tape. yo.10:30
roothlucent: =)10:30
lucentI point out the most easiest way that is easy, and lazy.10:31
frogzoorooth: take a look in /etc/acpi10:31
lumisrooth: electric tape worked for me too =3 do it10:31
frogzoopfft @ fixes in hardware10:31
tstebuthello10:31
lucentthere's no reason to warn you away from hacking your software10:31
ActionParsnipyo yo yo10:31
lucentit's just a pain10:31
tstebutId like to do aptitude search on an exact name10:32
frogzootstebut: apt-cache search ###10:32
lucenttstebut: use regexp?   like uh aptitude search ^exactname$10:32
tstebutthat's all, is it possible, cause the FM don't help10:32
tstebutoh ok10:32
roothfrogzoo: ok, thx *looking*10:33
rooth.10:33
tstebutyeah I like your regexp tip, yhank you all10:33
mattgyverwavez, sorry i was afk, try an lshw (might need to install it) and look for the multimedia section, see if that helps10:34
lucentI grep therefore I am.... lazy.10:34
wavezmattgyver: np. Thanks, I'll try that.10:34
ActionParsniplucent: i'd say smart, rather than lazy :)10:34
ActionParsnipdo servers like mondays these days?10:35
mattgyverwavez, the more i look through my output the less i think its gonna show10:36
wavezmattgyver: it looks a lot the same as the lspci list. I notice *-serial UNCLAIMED10:36
mattgyverthe chipset anyway... it might show you enough detail to figure it out10:36
wavezdescription: SMBus10:36
wavezcould that be related?10:36
mattgyverI dont think so10:37
wavezsome of my searches indicated that the ICH5 chipset (?) is related to my audio10:37
wavezI'll paste it. It's from a page which lists specs on my pc10:37

jvainioif rpm will not install for this ubuntu10:44
mattgyverjvainio, i dont even know what a .bundle file is so i think the answer is no10:44
mattgyverBut... what is vmware player?10:45
roothfrogzoo: what's the tosh-prefix on some of the entries in /etc/acpi ? I fail to see where too look for the LED-blinking, all I see are the events that'll happen once I press the key(s) and how I can remap those.10:45

jvainiobut when i try to go to the site and press add and then go to the dir, no files10:46
frogzoorooth: grep -i led * ?10:46
mattgyverjvainio, so its just vmware then10:46
jvainioeven though they are of supported format10:46
mattgyverI prefer virtualbox10:46
mattgyverand its in the repos10:46
mattgyverwait, no its not, its on suns site as a .deb10:46

mattgyverim sure i cant, but try10:47
mattgyverreeniginEesreveR, im no expert but I think an A-Record is in reference to website hosting10:47
roothfrogzoo: OK, I'll dig further, thank you for the pointer.10:48
frogzoorooth: another thing, try 'ps aux |grep ledcontrol'10:48
mattgyveran A-record is the highest level website, and i think somehow someway always prioritized by DNS servers.. something crazy like that.10:48

icarus-czetheroo: do you have that in your $PWD ?11:22
coz_O__o,  how did you install the nvidia driver?11:22
Weust`_which kind of sucks for scripts11:22

coz_O__o,  open system/administration/hardware drivers  and see if it is activated11:23

Prunethanks icarus11:23
zetheroolucent: yeah well I have done this about 3 times in the past and its safe ... but I still would like it to work without the sudo so part11:23
lucentzetheroo: normal user won't know what that means11:23
coz_O__o,  then you should have nvidia-settings11:23
jribWeust`_: right, because as you noticed they are different programs.  You can usually find debian/ubuntu's rename as prename in other distros.  Try mmv to get similar functionality11:23
icarus-cWeust`_: forget that rename and just  mv11:23

coz_O__o,  then  sudo apt-get install nvidia-settings11:24
lucentzetheroo: when a file is set with the +x executable permission bit, then your shell will read the first bytes from it as you try to execute it11:24
coz_O__o,  however that is odd it was not installed automatically along with the driver11:25
Weust`_jrib: it is a script on a server, but the rename that it has, i don't know from which package it comes11:25
icarus-czetheroo, lucent and have the #!/usr/bin/perl at the first line (correct me if i'm wrong)11:25
icarus-coops11:25

Weust`_but rename 'tostrip' '' * IS NICE11:27
lucenterUSUL: I'll leave it to you if you would like to support that notion with document or URL link :P11:27
prince_jammysWeust`_: 's/tostrip//' *11:28
jribWeust`_: use whatever tool you want.  The rename in ubuntu uses regex, so... rename 's/tostrip//g' *11:28
lucentWeust`_: global?11:28
Weust`_yeah but isn't ther a _universal_ way that works on all distro's? whatever rename version it has11:28
einstein1969hi, there is any way to measure the clock tick?11:28
Weust`_kind of stupid the rename (perl version) does not support the old syntax11:29
Weust`_lucent: global what ?11:29
prince_jammysWeust`_: no. you'd have use the shell (or sed, or whatever) to work with the text, and then mv.11:29
erUSULlucent: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shebang_(Unix) <<<11:29
lucentWeust`_: sed -e 's:find:replace:g'11:29
lucentthat's global11:29

lucentthanks erUSUL11:29
* lucent stabs gnome-terminal11:29
erUSULlucent: you know i was about to use the let me google that for you website but wikipedia is enough11:30
Weust`_jrib: ok, but i did expect that if a utility like rename gets reinvented, it is at least compatible with the other syntaxes11:30
jribWeust`_: apparently rename.ul on debian/ubuntu should be the util-linux rename that I'm guessing you are talking about from suse.  Or use mmv which is similar11:30
Weust`_but i'll guess i'll loop trough filenames and sed them out11:30
erUSULlucent: before you jump; in linux the program loader is part of the kernel and no they are not refering to the shell11:30

babakicarus-c: also ctrl+alt+ f(1--6) not work in new kernel13:20
abhilashm86Hailtech: so what should i do now?13:20
RanDom33Halitech, that was on step 4 of these instructions http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/instruction_prn1a.html13:20
HalitechRanDom33, looks like the issue is right here "package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)"13:21
RanDom33Halitech, there was no 64 bit driver13:21
abhilashm86Halitech: even if i do it as sudo ./install, the error is same..........13:22
RanDom33Halitech, the printer shows up in cups13:22
RanDom33Halitech, it just does not work13:22
HalitechRanDom33, trying to get a 32bit driver working on a 64bit OS is not going to work very well if at all13:22
xandhello all, can anyone please help me with a white screen issue with compiz due to Xorg somehow reverting back to Vesa driver ?13:23
DexterLBhello. I followed this guide: http://tinyurl.com/c5p63g13:23
RanDom33Halitech, sigh.. so solution is run vnc server on my xp machine... and print from it? ;)13:23
DexterLBI did the step sudo tune2fs -O extents,uninit_bg,dir_index /dev/XXXX13:23
DexterLBbut now when I try to do an e2fsck fsck says that doing an e2fsck on a mounted filesystem can cause severe damage.13:23
DexterLBBut this is partition is mounted to /home so gparted doesn't allow me to unmount it. What should I do?13:23
FloodBot1DexterLB: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.13:23
HalitechRanDom33, it might show up but if it can't use the 32bit driver in your 64bit OS, its not going to work13:23
DexterLBsorry about flooding :S13:24
HalitechRanDom33, that or get a machine that has 64bit support13:24
grawityDexterLB: Usually, when dealing with system partitions, you need to boot from a LiveCD (which has its own virtual /)13:24
hylmanhave anyone tried karmic moblin remix?13:24
DexterLBcan I do this now?13:24
soreauxand: Can you come to #compiz so we can help you with the white screen problem better?13:24
DexterLBor if I shutdown something bad will happen?13:24
grawityDexterLB: If you have the Ubuntu install disk, just insert it and reboot. Then run gparted.13:24
DexterLBok13:24
abhilashm86Hailtech: hey the error was in install script it was /usr/sbin!! i changed it to /usr/bin, all installed, good day:)13:24

mattgyverc10ud8, might not be the best but you could probably look into jinzora, xbmc, geexbox (perhaps), or actually.. you can stream with VLC13:49
mattgyverVLC has a web inteface too..13:49
c10ud8oh k so i just use the ps3 web browser?13:49
mattgyverYeah, pretty much13:50
c10ud8for xbmc web ui13:50

It serves all my needs except one.  I use Evolution on my laptop as well as my desktop, How can I keep my Contacts that I add albeit from the laptop/desktop sync'd? If I add new contacts to my laptop they are not added to the Desktop. :( ideas?13:50
mattgyverIve never used xbmc but its suppose to be really good, it was made for xbox, now used on everything..13:50
c10ud8oh yeah i used to have it on my modded original xbox its awesome13:50
mattgyverhowever, i dont know if xbmc has a web interface13:50

zz_...14:14
RanDom33Halitech, installed the 32 bit libraries14:14
HalitechRanDom33, the ia32-libs?14:14
sajiGlowball, for the base system that may be enough, but a larger parttion will be nice if you want to use diff. software...14:14
RanDom33Halitech, yes i do believe that is what it was.. i can check though14:15
RanDom33Halitech, yes that is the correct ones14:15
bastidrazorGlowball: yes, doing a dist-upgarde later on may be a bit tight.14:15
HalitechRanDom33, ok, I think thats the name, glad it worked for you, I'll have to keep that tidbit locked away in case it comes up again14:15

ZiberHow can I make shared network directories on ubuntu?14:30
GlowballWhen somebody says "I'd check it, but I don't have time, it'll take too long for me to boot", it's always fun to say "Oh, I'll boot mine, we'll have plenty of time" (a)14:30

SirStan2real users have a  '#' prompt anyways.14:32
Sonjathanks IdleOne14:32
SirStan2sudo is for wimps.14:32
Sonjai'm learning Ruby and playing a lot in it14:32
Sonjamakes me want to switch back to linux14:32
Sonjawindows is not the best environment for that kind of development14:33
lavishhi all14:33
SirStan2OSX seems to be the best supported in terms of toolsets for Ruby14:33
lavishwhy pypanel has been removed from jaunty? It was there on intrepid...14:33
sajiGlowball, ya less than 20secs, and they're now aiming for 10 secs...14:34
GlowballSaji: I know, I hope they make it :)14:34
SirStan2Coldboot is overrated.  I want my 'PC' operating system to resume from S1 or S3 as fast as a mac.14:34
zetherooanyone know how to get a webcam to show better picture? My picture is super dark14:34
shift_wreckzetheroo, try using more ambient light14:35
SirStan2shift_wreck: is that a hardware fix?14:35
Dr_Willisive notice some kinds of lights make mycam greenish also.14:35
pshr_zetheroo, see if this helps14:35
pshr_!cam | zetheroo14:35
ubottuzetheroo: Instructions for using webcams with Ubuntu can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Webcam - Supported cams: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportComponentsMultimediaWebCameras14:35
=== IdleOne is now known as KarmicOne
zetherooshift_wreck: got plenty of light already14:36
zetheroopshr_: yeah been through that14:36
pshr_then i pass..:)14:36
zetheroovery upsetting that hardware which worked in a previous release simply stops working in the next14:37
zetherooanything but stable14:37
shift_wreckzetheroo, your saying that even with direct light pointed at your face it is still too dark?14:37
sajiGlowball, I too hope for that...14:37
=== KarmicOne is now known as LucidOne
shift_wreckzetheroo, we call it "progress" :)14:38
sajiBut even now Ubuntu is far better in boot time versus any Window version...14:38
zetherooshift_wreck: believe me when I say there is plenty of light - I should not need a light shooting right in my face!14:38
zetherooshift_wreck: and as I mentioned already, it was working fine previously14:38
appleman#brains14:39
shift_wreckim just trying to understand the nature of your problem. not trying to be a smart a$$ necessarily...14:39
SirStan2zetheroo: Is there a toolkit for your camera to adjust the sensitivity?14:40
kottletthi! I want to write init.d scripts for two services, where the second service depends on the first one. is there a how-to around for telling the system this dependency? so if I restart the first service, the second service is automatically restarted, too?14:40
zetherooSirStan2: would be nice if there was ...14:40
Dr_WillisYou might want to learn how to do 'upstart' scripts for them kottlett  - the init.d stuff is getting phased out.14:41
zetherooseems like webcams and Linux is still generally a black hole14:41
emilysjrib : Couldn't find package  libxml214:41
gamerxhey when i select guest session all i get is a black screen, anything anyone can think of?14:41
Dr_Williskottlett:  updstart has the dependency stuff you are looking for.14:41
zetheroofunny thing is that this webcam is supposed to be fully supported
