DaZberuchti2te: so?00:01
RhysMberuch dont use it then00:01
shavinderberuchtigte: how so? I would like to know more please00:01

ChousukeIt's a troll, ignore it.00:01
beruchti2teshavinder: too complex for me00:02
shavinderI like to try all linuxes, I use ubuntu as well as Puppy linux, I like ubuntu for its widespread package support and for being a full installation, and i love puppy for it brevity and speed(it runs faster than light) :)00:02
Chousukethis is not the place for discussing distribution differences, anyway00:02
ChousukeMove to #ubuntu-offtopic, if you please.00:03

CaptainMorganjrib, are you familiar with conky or lua5.1? after I try to run the configure script (since the repos only have v1.5, and I can get v1.72 of conky), it says I need lua5.1 >= , so I use Synaptic to get liblua 5.1 and lua5.1 along with any dependencies... then I go back to the configure script and it's still saying that lua5.1 is missing...00:44

X7Dibblah, this pc has usb boot. i can use the startup disk thingy even i think.01:02
jribDelryk: sure, that's a start.  Now run some examples and see if that does what you want (it doesn't exactly).  Use "grep --color=auto"01:03
geneticxsup you all01:03
kiloDibblah, ahh.... no I have only run chkdsk from the command prompt and that's it.01:03
trismDelryk: you forgot the bunch of stuff of what jrib said01:03

Dibblahchkdsk can completely ruin a recoverable drive.01:04
DibblahLike I said, take an image of the disk FIRST.01:04
DibblahThen only work on the image.01:04

DibblahWhat are you trying to recover?01:04
jrib=auto01:04
kiloDibblah, fortunately, it found no bad sectors. I really don't even think the drive is recoverable: It's having delayed write failures01:04
Delrykok jrib can u give me an example of how i would search for lets say z in file1.txt ?01:05
DibblahAre you trying to recover data off it, or just repair it?01:05
Delrykoh i got it01:05
kiloDibblah, also I told it not to fix... only to report. I ran it based on another root, so it never booted from the drive (although the drive is bootable)01:05
KnifeySpooneyUsing usb-imagewriter, is it possible to write a Mac OS X install iso to a usb drive?01:05
jribDelryk: well for testing let's just pipe to grep.  So for example: echo abcad | grep --color=auto '[^a][a][^a]'01:05
KnifeySpooneymy friend has a legit copy of mac os x but no dvd drive01:06
Dibblahjrib: That's grep version dependent.01:06
OerHeksolyn : this guy has written a howto > http://www.mayrhofer.eu.org/Default.aspx?pageid=7701:06

Rick_can this be updated or changed to i386?01:12
trismfuzzybunny: right click on the file (witht he format you want to change associations), Properties/Open With tab01:13
VossI was shocked totem actually worked!01:13
FlannelDelryk: in "real" regexp a{2,3} means "from two to three of 'a'"  the \ are just to escape the {}s to protect them from bash or whatever. (just a construct of the program you're using)01:13
jribDelryk: what you've written matches aa or aaa, that's just the syntax for it.  Sometimes, depending on where you are using the regex, you'll need to escape things like braces so they are treated as special and not just matched in the text01:13
thedude42Flannel, only if by 'real' you mean Perl Regular Expressions01:13
Rick_perl -pi -e 's/\s+$//' file.txt should remove all trailing white spaces from lines in text file but it just blows the file out. This works fine on RHEL01:14

jribRick_: you actually want to use perl right?01:18
Delrykjrib me and my friends have been doing this for hours. like a ridiculous amount of time. the only reason im still doing it is because this course is a $5000 investment..... do you know how to do this ?01:18
Rick_yes01:18

Rugethanks!01:19
gtechokay lsusb and lshw are nice but they won't tell me the mount point of the device, is there another way?01:19
morphiasFlannel, ???01:19
Rick_JRIB - I am open to suggestions.01:19
Flannelmorphias: No idea how I managed to highlight you.01:19
eeinfcuk112_, the gain is always low after every boot01:19
morphiasoh ok. lol01:19
jribRick_: well you can just use sed... anyway if I change \s to just ' ' it doesn't remove the final newline01:19
thedude42gtech, use df -ha01:19
eeinfcuk112_, that seems to be all that is wrong01:19
Rick_ok - I'll try that.01:19

gtechthedude42: I'm trying to find a USB RFID card reader01:21
thedude42gtech, ok, well the reason people told you lsusb and lshw is because that will tell you how your system is identifying the devices, but you asked for a mount point just now01:22
crohakonWhen I log into my server box it tells me I have x packages can be updated... how do I update them?01:22
gtechis there a way to find the port that the device is on?01:22
Cyr4xhi i've got a glx issue01:22
c4pthow do i connect to a wpa2 enterprise connection with PEAP on ubuntu?01:23
jribRick_: by the way, escaping the + in your original command seems to make it work right here01:23
Cyr4xglxinfo gives this:01:23
Cyr4xXlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".01:23
Rick_cool - brb01:23
thedude42gtech, lsusb tells you the information about what usb devices are connected to your system.... what do you mean exactly by 'the port'.... the full pci path to the device?01:23
Cyr4xError: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig01:23
jribRick_: never mind, I lied01:23
Rick_lol01:23
Cyr4xnvidia 185 drivers properly installed01:23
gtechthedude42: like a path in the filesystem like /dev/tty*01:24

thedude42gtech, like all other devices it's in /dev, for usb it will be under /dev/bus/usb01:24
Rick_Excellent!01:25
Rick_Thanks so much.01:25
eeinno offense but that is retarted, this was a standard install01:25
eeinthe only hing i added was ccsm01:25
gtechthedude42: great thanks, how do i figure out which device is which?01:25
ziomushello guys01:25
ziomusI need help with samba01:26
OerHeksc4py select the right SSID in the network list, feed it username/password/certificate and that's it01:26
thedude42gtech, lsusb tells you that, it says 'Bus xxx' on the line that lists the device, that's how you know which directory to look in under /dev/bus/usb01:26
jribDelryk: usually you take courses to learn.  I don't mind giving you hints, but there's not much point in just asking for a solution01:26
thedude42gtech, all the information to find it is in lsusb01:26
gtechah, cool, I was really confused by the bus device language01:27
Cyr4xso, any solution?01:27
ziomusMy problem is that i can not see my folders that i shared from the other computer ( OS windows) but i can see sharing folders that i am sharing from windows..01:27
jribDelryk: if it helps, I try to think of difficult homework problems as puzzles to work on01:27
Delrykjrib: so far everything that i have been told hasnt helped me at all. i know how to use regex but i dont have an understanding of how to actually only find the words that contains one vowel only. i havent learned how to search words rather than lines01:27
korin43c4pt: Click on the Networkmanager applet then click on the network and type in the information you're given01:28
jribDelryk: what examples did you try with your '[a][^a][a]' suggestion from before?01:28
c4ptkorin43: what about the CA cert?01:28
c4ptkorin43: do i use the user CA cert or the host CA cert?01:28
jribDelryk: don't solve the whole problem at once.  Start by solving the problem of how to just find lines that contain a single 'a'01:28
Distro^Junkieany particular reason why file transfers from ubuntu to vista on dual boot are so slow ?01:28
ziomusmore specific please <--noobie01:28
Delrykjrib: i got that01:29
gtechthedude42: so bus is the device type and Device is the device number? like device 003 would be the third device and come up as hiddev2?01:29
korin43c4pt, there should be an option to just accept the host cert. I don't have anything to test on right now..01:29
jribDelryk: what's the answer to that?01:29
Delrykwait only 1 a ?01:29
kilohow do I find the location of a HD that I plug in via usb? Is it automatically  /dev/sdb1  provided no other HDs are mounted?  How do I find out??01:29

jribDelryk: right01:29
Delrykhah01:29
OerHekskilo : desktop01:29
Delrykgive me a minute LOL01:29
trismDelryk: need to think about matching the line as a whole01:30
thedude42gtech, right, so assume we're talking about a device like so: Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c318 Logitech, Inc.01:30
* Dcash needs halp01:30
Delryktrism: i dont know how to do that though01:30
korin43c4pt: For "Authentication" choose PEAP, then put in the information you have and ignore the CA Certificate part01:30
thedude42then we should be able to find the device file at /dev/bus/usb/003/00201:30
DcashI need help connecting to the internet.  Just switched from Vista.01:31
kiloOerHeks, yes, I see it, but how do I find the location address? I'm trying to repair it via gddrescue01:31
nanotubeDelryk: ^somestuff$   that says that your somestuff should match the whole string from beginning to end. that's 'matching a line as a whole'01:31
Delrykthanks nano01:31
c4ptkorcan: using the TrustedCA.pem as the host cert or choosing no cert and ignore with peap its denied. with the right user and password01:31
ziomusdelryk check out my msg on privey01:32
ziomusprivet01:32
c4ptkorcan: sorry the message was for korin4301:32
kilowow this is frustrating.... you'd think linux would have put the address of mounted disks in an easy to find location...01:32
c4ptkorin43:  using the TrustedCA.pem as the host cert or choosing no cert and ignore with peap its denied. with the right user and password01:33
nanotubeDelryk: so as a hint, you're looking for a regexp that would do something like: "^0 or more nonvowels, one vowel, 0 or more non-vowels$"01:33
eeinkilo, type fdisk at a terminal01:33
nevets04Hi everyone!!01:33
thedude42kilo, df -ah not work?01:33

ziomusany1?01:35
nanotubeDelryk: are you sure that line only hase the one 'a' and nothing else? because that /should/ work to produce the line that only has the lone a01:35
eeinkilo, actually thedude42 answer would probably be better01:35

rabbitofdeathDistro^Junkie what kind of filesystm are you using?02:05
cedriczgriley, Do you have loggin enabled on your system? you can try to check on your messages02:05
rileyi had to reinstall at that point and less than 24 hours later i recieved an io manager bad magic02:05
cedriczgriley, try "grep -i error /var/log/messages" on a terminal to see what kind of message error you see02:05
rileyi update as much as possible and run an fsck whenever i think of it02:06

zenlunaticSchnork: cntrl-alt-f103:39
lstarnesxrandr: the main reason for encrypting it is to prevent it from being read by others in case your hard drive or computer gets stolen03:39

Sp3c1alKis there a program for ubuntu that bounces a connection back to the source? Say some IP is trying to conenct to me but I don't want them to, and instead I somehow make my IP theirs, so they're really connecting ot themselves?03:42

* xrandr would definitely use ubuntu as a work computer if he owned his own business. His whole netwrok would be ubuntu based03:43
zenlunaticmsconfig is a tool03:43

LinuX2halfBoxmagnet: I've never tried it, but whats does it do anyway?03:45

BoxMagnetLinuX2half, no, UUID = unique identifier for hard drives.03:46

DaZand uses static image or true transparency depending on composite :f03:46
* BoxMagnet finally got network shares to mount on boot using nfs03:46
kakashihi guys can i get some help setting u a local repository server plz ?03:47
DaZblah569: imo it's black with true transparency :f03:47
LinuX2halfBoxMagnet: oh okay, but then does it have to do with the "resume image" process?03:47

BoxMagnetLinuX2half, I am not sure.03:48

rictecstone i cant say that i can say is the last kernel broke something03:51
rictecstone1343, until someone finds out what it is you have to use a older kernel try 9.0403:51
stone1343rictec fair enough, thanks, i'll give 9.04 a try that'll be helpful to know if it works03:52

webbb82but after doing all that all i see is a blinking cursor03:54
heylalaMy dist-upgrade from a fresh install of jaunty to karmic beta went wrong in a couple of ways. The most obvious problem is that there are some packages missing that won't install. apt / aptitude output here: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/m50f090f5      I realize I could reinstall but I'd rather the learning process of trying to fix it. Anyone mind walking me through?03:54
trismLinuX2half: dunno03:54
phil_flLinuX2half: what have you done that could triggered it ? did you made any change in your partition table ?03:54
zmoazeniHello everyone. I need a little advice on how to create and use custom debian packages to "compile on install". An example would be I have a package Apache2.2.3 and 2 PHP5 Packages (PHP5.3.0 and PHP5.2.11). If I wanted to configure a system with Apache2.2.3 and PHP5.3.0, I'd want to install 2 packages, and have the PHP5.3.0 compile on install (passing specific configure parameters) - would I use the postinst script? Or is there a 03:55
zmoazeniI should be using instead?03:55
LinuX2halfphil_fl: Not really, last time I messed up my partition when restoring my windows but then I restore linux back so...03:55
zmoazeni(The purpose is so I could have another Apache package say Apache2.3.5 and the PHP5.3.0 package would still install/compile against it)03:56
LinuX2halfphil_fl: but I think that it happened when the ubuntu help menu is gone...but I'm not sure if its relevant....03:56
phil_flLinuX2half: I have seen it when I play with my partition table and my UUID get messed up03:56
heylala_(another thing wrong is that gnome is acting terribly, so it just froze, did anyone respond / think they can help by any chance?)03:56
LinuX2halfphil_fl: oh? Then this matter involve with UUID?03:57
rictecpeople its the end for me back latter03:57
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, why would it involve UUID?03:57
phil_flLinuX2half: in my case yes you want me to guide to find out if you suffer with the same problem I did ?03:58
BoxMagnetyou keep asking that, did you change /etc/fstab ?03:58
zmoazeniI thought I should be using the dsc, but that seemed like I would pass the configure parameters at install time03:58
LinuX2halfphil_fl: alright03:58
[t0rc]I installed ubuntu server edition 9.04 and am now doing apt-get update but the downstream speed is UBER slow (its downloading in bytes). Any help?03:58

BoxMagnetLinuX2half, cat /etc/fstab03:58

Magnesium_webbb82: The dev build is the only build of chrome for linux from google at the moment...like I said, download the deb package from http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel04:13

UseLinuxhi?04:19
xrandrZykoticK9: works nicely :)04:19

Boogerslinger_scunizi but have only had ubuntu for like two days04:26

Magnesiumscunizi: try #windows04:26
=== AtomicCrotch is now known as NiteSnow
scuniziBoogerslinger_: well.. you learn one at a time.. cp is copy .. then the next statement is where the file is located followed by the location you want to put it.. /media is a directory where your drives etc are typically mounted..04:27

GBGamesDoes anyone have any experience getting Ekiga to work? As far as I know, the configuration should be fine (using STUN since the Ekiga wiki says I should), but I can't seem to connect to the echo test.04:29
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, if it does not work, switch just the UUID one more time. if not im stumpted04:29
nazojanI am new to ubuntu I recently installed it I have a sound problem can any one help me?04:29
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, try this before you go.04:29
cap!audio04:30
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 !MP304:30
BoxMagnetsudo update-initramfs -u04:30
ZykoticK9dshepherd, i haven't used it but "Smile" available from getdeb.net - seems to fit the bill.  Good luck.04:30
nazojanthe sound is very very low hardly you can hear it and my sound card is SoundMax Audio Driver04:30
dshepherdZykoticK9: thanks04:30
scuniziGBGames: does it actually connect but you just can't hear anything?04:30
LinuX2halfboxmagnet: hm, okay so I'll copy everything to the file?04:30
Boogerslinger_scunizi yeah i just need to learn it LOL04:30
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, then run, sudo update-initramfs -u04:31

nazojanyes it is I did04:31
CaptainMorgangot multiple tabs within a terminal window open... every time I go to close it, it asks me for confirmation - how do I remove that confirmation message?04:31

CaptainMorganis it in gconf-editor ?04:31
capnazojan: Turn up Master and/or PCM04:31
scuniziBoogerslinger_: sometimes it's a large learning curve but the best approach (for me anyway) is to learn what you need first then experiment..04:31
* dshepherd grumbles about compiling04:31
Boogerslinger_scunizi if i want to copy file from my videos to my external could you give me a example04:31
ZykoticK9dshepherd, sorry man, lead you astray did I -- ?04:32
scuniziGBGames: If there is a place to put in an address for a stun server you can try stun.ekiga.net04:32
* howitzer` compiles about.grumbling04:32
dshepherdZykoticK9: its ok. thanks anyways04:32
nazojanyes it is04:32
scuniziBoogerslinger_: well.. with gui or commandline?04:32
nazojanthanks for all in advance help04:32
GBGamesscunizi: Yep, it's already in there.04:32
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, did you run sudo update-initramfs -u’04:33
LinuX2halfboxmagnet: yes it finished updating04:33
CaptainMorgannevermind, it is in gconf-editor... wasn't orginally sure it would be that easy to find04:33

pfifonot here too *facepalm*04:33
BoxMagnetGBGames, is it on ur local network?04:33
scuniziGBGames: then erase it and save.. try to connect without it.... with a stun server you shouldn't need port forwarding.. you could also use stun01.sipphone.com  that's what stun.ekiga.net points to.04:33
Boogerslinger_scunizi too used to windows04:34
GBGamesBoxMagnet: Is what on my local network?04:34
perlsyntaxwhen is ubuntu 9.10 come out on the oct 22?04:34

scuniziGBGames: k04:37
perlsyntax?04:37
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, ok, try swapping the UUID portions again then, do the update command sudo update-initramfs -u’04:37
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, reboot, and if it does not work I am sorry thats what that website says to do.04:38
Boogerslinger_scunizi just tried this Error opening file '/media/disk/07  Pink - Funhouse.mp3': Permission denied04:38
Boogerslinger_scunizi just a song04:38
scuniziBoogerslinger_: make a copy then rename the copy using a name with no spaces in it..replace spaces with an underline character "_"04:39
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, edit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume and pastebin what that line says04:39
leaf-sheepBoogerslinger_: The lazy solution would be to include a sudo in your command. :3  The approach solution would be to chown your /media/disk04:39

vangorraleaf-sheep, thanks04:49
cedriczgvangorra, If you want you can turn off that service for your startup services04:49
vangorracedriczg, I know, I was just curious what could be going on04:49

RPG_Mastercap: mov is not listed :(04:49
cedriczgvangorra, It happens to me as well whenever I have new data on my machine04:49
Boogerslinger_scunizi so how do i learn to do that without help ???04:50
FlannelJordan_U: No, that means it doesn't match lowercase letters04:50
capRPG_Master: well, not sure.. just checked and mine does it... so. Just a sec.04:50
cedriczgvangorra, Like lets say new images, mail, etc04:50
leaf-sheepBoogerslinger_: Search engines helped. Everybody here is not armed with knowledge instantly.  We learned it by facing the problems ourselves once and whatnot.04:50
Jordan_UFlannel: True, but it's still not part of his stated requirements04:51
cedriczgvangorra, It's what it is meant to do. If you prefer you can update the database for locate when you want and use locate command instead of tracerd04:51
fizk_hey guys, what's wrong with this line:   find .|xargs grep -l 'a'|sed -sir 's/a/ hello /g'04:51
scuniziBoogerslinger_: one command at a time .. here.. on www.ubuntuforums.org and you might consider downloading the pdf for the ubuntu quick reference guide.. I'll see if I can find the link04:51
FlannelDelryk: You should move this regular expression stuff to #ubuntu-offtopic.  This isn't really a proper channel for it. thanks.04:51
cedriczgfizk_, what are you trying to do?04:51
capRPG_Master: May be that you just dont' have codec for mov  You could install mplayer04:51
fizk_cedriczg: run sed on some files04:52
fizk_cedriczg: replace inline04:52
capRPG_Master: Which will in turn intall a lot of extra codecs04:52
cedriczgtry to run the commands pipe after pipe04:52

KnifeySpooneyRight now it just says 0 to upgrade/0 to install/0 to remove04:53
cedriczgfizk_, maybe you are trying "find ./xargs grep -l 'a'|sed -sir 's/a/ hello /g"04:53

RPG_Masterbut this will: http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/wherethewildthingsare/04:55
Jordan_Ufizk_: That command will run "grep -l 'a'" on all of the files from find, and pass the output from that to sed. Is that what you want?04:55
cedriczgfizk_, try sed -sirn04:55
RPG_Master:O04:55
cedriczgfizk_, not sure what -sir option do, but maybe option -n does what you are expecting04:56

KnifeySpooneyleaf-sheep: Thanks. I read of that earlier (i'm trying to help someone in the forums) and it's already been suggested by someone else04:58
crohakoncarpediem; and what does that mean and how will that effect the installation of vista? Would I still be able to boot into it via grub later/04:58
KnifeySpooneybut this guy seemed to be interested in my way04:58
[1]SpaceGhostGood evening friends.04:58
leaf-sheepKnifeySpooney: I see.04:59
scunizicarpediem: crohakon that's true.. vmware makes a converter but be aware that if you do that and leave your other install.. once the converted file is "activated" with microsoft in the vm then the other install will not be active anymore.. you can run the same copy of windows on two machines which is what you will be essentially doing.04:59
carpediemcrohakon: you boot into a LiveCD, then convert an unmounted disk to a VM.  What you do is up to you.  You could save it somewhere, install something else onto that disk, then use it as a VM there.04:59

boysencan set up vanity without owning a domain name?05:00
[1]SpaceGhostboysen: what do you mean? A static IP?05:00
crohakoncarpediem; does not seem worth the trouble. I guess I am just going to leave vista installed on the other hard drive and when I need to use office for work I will just boot it up.05:00
boysenalias ip05:00
boysenlike  hahaha.org05:00
[1]SpaceGhostboysen: Do you mean a domain name? You'd need a domain, or use dyndns.org.05:00
scunizicrohakon: what do you do in office that absolutely needs ms office?05:00
carpediemcrohakon: up to you.  Clonezilla is the software to do it, if you decide to05:01
boyseni see05:01
[1]SpaceGhostboysen: That is called a Domain name, it's not a license plate. Domain name.05:01

firdau5DaZ, can you help me?05:02
Flannelboysen: What do you mean by vanity ip?05:02
[1]SpaceGhostboysen: Buy a domain name, or use dyndns.05:02
firdau5tell me the details coyo,05:03
[1]SpaceGhostBoysen: learn the nomanclature, it's called a domain.05:03
crohakonscunizi; For restaurants. The problem I have is that the work computers use office2007, so if I want to do any work at home I need to use office as openoffice and other alternatives murder xdoc files.05:03
Flannel[1]SpaceGhost: Please be polite05:03
leaf-sheepcrohakon: Save the files as .doc05:03
coyofirdau5: okay, what you do is click on System > Administration > Synaptic05:03
crohakonThe formatting also gets murdered with .doc files.05:03
firdau5ok.. then?05:04
scunizicrohakon: yea.. and office 2003 & 2000 also do the same thing.. how 'bout installing OpenOffice on the work machine and you'd be set in both worlds?05:04
coyofirdau5: then type "restricted" in the search bar05:04
crohakonIts just that the alternatives, although close, still kill the over all flow of the documents.05:04
firdau5ok.. then?05:04
coyoselect the "ubuntu-restricted-extras package, and install them05:04
[1]SpaceGhostflannel: I was, I was letting him know to learn the nomanclature, as the terms are not interchangable. I'd appreciate it if you'd apply the thought that humor doesn't translate on the internet to my messages. Don't assume I'm being rude.05:04
coyoyou should be able to play wmv container formatted a/v fine then05:05
firdau5ubuntu-restricted-extras.. ok05:05
Flannel[1]SpaceGhost: Exactly.  Humor doesn't translate.  Don't be condescending of people because they're new.05:05
coyoyup05:05
boysenthat's very deep spaceghost :P05:05
coyolet me know if it works or not05:05
boyseni cant dig it :P05:05
crohakonscunizi; And I should expect the other employees to convert just for me? And also, to be honest, I have attempted to create duplicate documents in open office from scratch just to see how they turn out and open office just does not compare. Its hard to explain without showing.05:05
cedriczgfizk_, would "find .|xargs grep -l 'a'|sed -sir 's/a/ hello /g' " do what you are looking for?05:06

Help1hi anyone here05:07
fizk_cedriczg:  find . -type f -exec sed -ir 's/a/ hello/g' {} \;05:07
Flannelboysen: There's two separate issues there.  One is connecting (which you'll need to set up port forwarding for) and then the domain name is another one.  You should be able to connect just fine using the IP (assuming everything's set up properly)05:07
LinuX2halfboxmagnet: maybe the UUID WASN"T involve in this kind of situation..05:07

evilaimMan I'm a geek05:08
BoxMagnetLinuX2half, what do you see on the screen of that computer05:08
scunizicrohakon: having worked in both worlds I know what you're up against.. OOo draw is better for layout then the wordprocessor but won't translate.. scribus is a great desktop publishing program and works on both platforms .. but.. it's tough teaching something new and if there are others (didn't know that).. it makes it that much more difficult.05:08

scuniziHelp1: retrieve?  it's located at /boot/grub/menu.list or .lst05:09
ae86-drifterits pretty straight forawrd normally05:10
Flannelboysen: What probably happened is your box got a new IP (on the subnet) so your port forwarding doesn't work anymore.  You're behind a router, right?05:10

ae86-drifterboysen: i thought it was a remote server, so it is on your internal network??05:14

BoxMagnetHelp1, absolutely.05:15
cedriczgHelp1, Yes. But you can try to do the changes using a Live CD05:15

joshHow do I install alsa-lib from command line?  I run 'sudo apt-get install alsa-lib' and I get the error "package alsa-lib does not exist"05:16
scunizicrohakon: no.. use synaptic or scribus' repos ... it is a mental shift to use scribus.. don't expect to do things like in a word processor or MS Publisher.. it's different..05:16
ae86-drifterboysen: oh k well make sure you forward port 21 to the internal ip of your server, then u should be able to access it externally05:16
boysenic  i will go to my network modem to check it05:16
dsnyderscedriczg, /boot/grub/menu.lst would be the menu.lst on the live CD, not the corrupted one.05:16

crohakonscunizi; I see that already, but it has already slightly grown on me. I am going to try to reproduce some of my menus with it and see how they turn out.05:17
ae86-drifterand when you connect externally with the ftp client make sure you use the external(internet) IP, not your internal network IP05:18
cedriczgHelp1, If you use a live CD then you should check for file /media/disk/boot/grub/menu.lst05:18
dsnyderscedriczg, YOu'd have to get Help1 to look at the /mnt/hda1/boot/grub/menu.lst or whatever it is.05:18
cedriczgHelp1, Where disk would be the name of your disk05:19
scunizicrohakon: I think that after using it for a while you'll get hooked.. remember that when creating a text box you can right mouse click on it and "edit text" .. you can also F2 afterwards for more adjustment options.05:19
joshne0futur, all the guides say I should be installing "alsa-lib", and it's even on canonical's site, but it's not showing up with a 'apt-cache search alsa | grep lib'05:19

ZykoticK9thahauss, personally i like gftp GUI support FTP and SSH/SFTP connections -- filezilla is also popular gui app for ftping.07:26
thahaussZykoticK9, thanks for the response!  ill take your advice and check out GFTP GUI07:27
bigfootbuiltI think you can add an ftp client to Firefo as an add on07:27
bigfootbuiltfirefox that is07:27
MenZathahauss: nautilus (the default file browser) will do it. Try Places → Connect to Server - feature-wise, it doesn't boast much, but it's quite nifty just for simple operations.07:27

CaptainMorganso I got nvidia GTX 275 and I'm a fairly new nvidia user after almost a decade of being solely an ATI user... I've had my card working with 2.6.24-24 for about week since I initially installing this system.  Today, 2.6.24-25 came out I think, and I went to upgrade and correct me if I'm wrong but the latest nvidia driver for 64 bit is not compatible with this kernel update, or vice versa... I reverted back to 2.6.24-24 and it07:38
CaptainMorgantook a bit of work but I got finally working back to normal... is this typical? should I be more confident when 2.6.24-26 comes out instead ?07:38
ZykoticK9Jaraxle, sorry I only have Quake II-III-IV & ETWQ icons :(  Good luck man.07:38
CaptainMorgan8.04 btw07:39
Jaraxlecool, thank u07:40
CaptainMorgansimply put, I was trying to achieve what I have now with ...24-24: 1920x1200 or larger, and with ..24-25 I could only get 1600x105007:40
ZykoticK9CaptainMorgan, 8.04 ahhhh -- as Nvidia is working fine on my 64bit 9.04 with 2.6.2807:40
codeFiendso I'm still struggling with network problems. here's the symptoms: dhcp seems to works, default gateway route is set, I can do dns lookups on hosts, but I can't ping or connect to anything outside the local network, and traceroute shows the connection dying on the third hop out. The weird thing is that plugging a mac into the same network gets me a network connection that is just fine, so it must be a config issue of some sort.07:40

Jester86hello gentlemen and lady07:40
codeFiend(third hop out - past the gateway)07:40
CaptainMorganZykoticK9, do you think that explains it? I'm not comfortable with the non-LTS versions... so maybe I should just wait for 10.04 ?07:41
Jester86have any of you any experience with streaming 1080p movies across a gig-network?07:41
codeFiendI can't believe that the traffic is being blocked because of the os, but I can't think of anything else that I can test or check on this machine07:41
Jester86see the problem is I'm running mythtv and i want to run it to a machine in my living room.07:41
Jester86i was wondering if any of you think i would experience any problems w/ bandwidth running a 75' cat6 cable.. I kind of doubt it but that is getting semi-lengthy07:42
ZykoticK9CaptainMorgan, I dunno my ex-gf is still on 8.04 and very happy with it, we where just discussing if she would upgrade to 9.10 or wait until 10.04.  It's really up to you, personally I find 8.04 kinda dated now.  Best of luck to you.07:42

Jester86well its more of just an over all data/network question07:44
CaptainMorganZykoticK9, 10.04 is less than six months away... but I suppose I was trying to get at whether 8.04 and the new kernel combined might be the issue for nvidia... and that 10.04 with an updated kernel would make more sense...07:44
Jester86not necessarily fit for this channel but this is the only really active place to ask07:44

codeFiendrublind: yeah tried telnetting and ssh'ing to both those ip's, neither gave me any response, don't think they have those ports open07:56
CWinLxokay so how do I run the script as root then ROFL if sudo doesn't work and su doesn't07:56
CWinLxand both of them together don't work either07:56
zirodayrublind: apologies, it appears something like that doesn't exist. I recommend you just use <two letter country code>.archive.ubuntu.com if you're not sure. Or ask your loco07:56
rublindcodeFiend: is this box hard wired? you mentioned you had a mac, is that also hard wired?07:56
CWinLxi did an 'ls' the file is there07:56
ZykoticK9CWinLx, it's "sudo sh script"07:56
rublindziroday: yeah, I'm using us.archive but it's sooo slow for me07:57
codeFiendrublind: yup, both were hardwired07:57
ActionParsnipCWinLx: you may need to chown it as you are running as "myname" and not "theuser"07:57

rublindcodeFiend: have you tried swapping ethernets? to see if the mac has any issues with that line?07:57
rublindziroday: california07:57
codeFiendBoohbah: yeah, I'll try to get some contact info, but there's no sysadmin on site there, they let a lot of people go recently apparently. was hoping to solve it myself.07:57
codeFiendrublind: yeah, I tried plugging both machines into the same wall jack, same result07:57
zirodayrublind: I'd ask in #ubuntu-us-ca what they'd recommend. I'm sure they'll know some better mirrors07:58
ActionParsnipCWinLx: you have marked it executale though which is good07:58
codeFiendCWinLx: is the first line of your script something like #!/bin/bash07:58

CWinLxno... because I can run the script as non-root07:59
CWinLxwith just './createUsers.sh'07:59
rublindcodeFiend: last question, because I'm stumped otherwise, have you made sure that there are no special rules on the router blocking traffic? I know some routers do that, esp. for companies...08:00
mb_again_show_ru : gcc -v08:00
CWinLxproblem is that I don't have root access so the script isn't working :(08:00
ZykoticK9CWinLx, then use "sudo ./createUsers.sh"08:00
CWinLxahh, that is know working!08:00
CWinLxafter like 100 different tries08:00
CWinLxthanks you08:00
CWinLxI was going to give up08:00
ActionParsnipCWinLx: i told you sudo like 3 times, and even gave the factoid explaining it08:01
* ActionParsnip facepalms08:01
codeFiendrublind: don't really have access to the router directly. do you think it's possible to have a rule that blocks all traffic that's originating from non-windows/mac machines? I guess that would explain it, but I thought traffic blocking would be more protocol-level, not originating-machine-os level filtering08:01
CWinLxActionParnsip, it wasn't working before08:01
ActionParsnipZykoticK9: maybe your text is better than mine08:01
CWinLxI even copied in pastebin08:01
rublindcodeFiend: not to that extent, but for machines they don't recognize maybe08:01
rublindcodeFiend: mac address filtering or something, maybe08:02
ActionParsnipCWinLx: scroll up and read, you'll laugh08:02
ActionParsnipCWinLx: but you got the gold, thats what matters :D08:02
codeFiendrublind: true, but still I don't understand why my mac would work then... its mac address is not known on that network either08:03
CWinLxlol okay08:03
rublindcodeFiend: if it's an office computer, it would have to be, but I'm not saying that's the exact issue, but it could be something related...08:03
codeFiendrublind: no, both machines are mine... that's why it's driving me nuts08:04
codeFiendI'd understand if both failed, or both worked... but argh, one works and one not08:04
rublindcodeFiend: oh, then find your network admin and punch him in the face until it works. :p08:04
codeFiendrublind: I'm down with that plan :)08:04

Guest41704does proftpd is secure?09:24
psineticok, then you'll click the button that says "new partition table"09:25
ZykoticK9Guest41704, you also might like gadmin-proftpd GUI admin.  NO FTP IS SECURE - it's all sent in clear text!09:25
ActionParsnipRafay: use custom partitioning, part of the partitioning is to choose the mount point for the partition, as long as you have at least / and / swp you are fine09:25

ActionParsnipGuest41704: ftp is pretty poor for file sharing choices09:25

psineticoh hey, since u guys are talking about hacking-like-stuff, how do i get the backtrack 4 software on ubuntu in one-shot?09:26
ActionParsnipGuest41704: you can then use winscp / scp to transfer files, ad even mount09:26
Rafaycould you guys wait for sometime?09:26
RafayI'll be back in 10 minutes09:26
ActionParsnippsinetic: its not supported here09:27

psineticanything on it will be erased09:27
psineticActionParsnip, ok, thanks :)09:27

th3_b0bHi! How can I configure Jaunty Server to rotate more than 4 Days on syslog files? I tried changing the general rotation settings in /etc/logrotate.conf, but they don't have any effect on /var/log/syslog, since that seems to be rotated by syslog itself via /etc/cron.daily/syslogd. How can I configure the behaviour of that script without breaking it? Or how can I exclude /var/log/syslog from the files output by syslogd-listfiles?10:59

erUSULAdmin__: you said it is a truecrypt volume? if the data is encripted is even harder to recover it...11:33
coz_Qtpaxa,  ok that 2048  is a hardware limitation...it means that your desktop ...in any one direction..cannot exceed that resolution11:33

icerootAdmin__: backups!!!11:33

Admin__yes its a truecrypt volume11:33
Admin__i encrypted the whole partition11:33
Admin__but does anyone know what the error is or means ?11:34
coz_Qtpaxa,  you would have to reduce the resolutions so that ...as I said  in any  one direction...does not exceed the 204811:34
erUSULAdmin__: you did "dmesg | tail " to see the actual error ?11:34
Admin__yes11:34
