lukeyah I see.00:10
NerveClasp1lukey, so I don't think, that two users will be good, as I need to swith often00:10
lukeyHi NerveClasp1 you can run a command as a different user from the command line did you know?00:11
lukeyYou wouldn't have to make a seperate Ctrl-Alt-Fx session if that's what you mean?00:11
NerveClasp1ideal thing would be two windows of wine on separate workspaces00:11

MarkGilReal obvious question time, but one I can't figure out.  How do I tell (from CLI) from version of a program I have00:13
MarkGilapt-cache search xxxx does not tell me00:13
usserMarkGil, most program have -v or --version switch00:14
vr_mexPlease help installing ruby1.86 have this problem with apt-get :  http://paste.ubuntu.com/300133/00:14
usserMarkGil, ie wine --version will tell you the version00:15
MarkGiland if it's PHP scripts and non executables?00:16
lukeyhi MarkGil, usser is correct also you can do: lukey@Lynysys:~$ dpkg -p xchat | grep Version00:16
lukeyMarkGil, usser this will show the version of the package.00:16
lukeyMarkGil, usser I hope this helps but if not please let me know.00:17

lukeyItaku, hi there.00:25
lukeyItaku, I will research for you.00:25
vr_mexlukey, I would imagine it will install ruby1.87 since that is waht it says at the bottom of my paste...00:25
isabel575how can i remove/purge evolution?00:25
Itakuk so, im a technology directer at a school district, and i got passed to make all the computers linux, so how would i go about making a network login account for 4500+ users and make it automatically sync with a flash drive?00:26
isabel575evolution mail that is00:26
lukeyvr_mex, I understand that you are trying to install ruby1.87 instead of ruby1.86, is this correct?00:26
rjuneItaku, where you at in MI?00:26
ctmjrisabel575: sudo apt-get --purge remove evolution00:26
vr_mexlukey, no the other way arround i want ruby1.86 installed00:26

lukeyvr_mex, which ubuntu are you running, I will find a pacakge.00:27
rjuneYou'll want to use LDAP for the network auth stuff00:27
isabel575is there a list of apps that you can't delete from the ubuntu default or that you shouldn't or it'll cause damages to the system?00:27
Itakulol lukey is my quesiton too hard or something?00:27
rjuneflash drives *should* be formatted vfat, no user id syncing required00:27
Itakuthing is right now, we use god awful macs, and its setup to login via a network, and sync with the network and flash drive at login/logout00:28
vr_mexlukey, please read the post http://paste.ubuntu.com/300133 it is more involved than just looking for a pkg...00:28
powerjuceis there a way to work with raw files made with dd? i made a raw file of a disc, can i make it into an iso?00:28
Itakuand students can save work to their flash drive and take it home00:28
lunaticjoin #ubuntu-beginner-help00:28
rjuneItaku, sync what?00:28
Itakusync all data, desktop icons, history00:28
Itakuplain out everything00:28
rjunesyncs the user's home directory to the flash?00:28
lukeyItaku, yes for me I think :) I am glad more knowledgable folk have since answers because it is good to learn this too.00:28
Itakuagh, i got till jan 1st 2010 to get all computers in the district to ubuntu00:29
Itakuso i want to start ASAP00:29
rjuneif the kid does not have their thumb drive, do they still have full access?00:29
rjuneItaku, how many computers?00:29
Itakurjune, yeah, it uses network login, so it just wont get synced to the flash drive, but to the network, and next time they use their usb drive, itll get synced to it00:30
isabel575is there a list of apps that you can't delete from the ubuntu default or that you shouldn't or it'll cause damages to the system?00:30
Itakuand around 3000 computers00:30
rjuneInteresting setup.00:30
rjuneand you have until Jan 1st?00:30
rjunerunning on the Mac hardware? or are you getting all new hardware?00:30
bastid_raZorItaku: #ubuntu-server may help too.00:30
ItakuI got like 100 copys of ubuntu burnt already00:30
rjunehow many people do you have?00:31
Itakucounting all students K-12 and staff, 4,500 ish00:31
rjuneNo, I mean in your department.00:31
Itakuoh in the tech department00:31
Itakui got some voulenteers too so, it wont be too bad00:32
Itakuim pretty sure I can do it00:32
rjuneItaku, Look at network imaging, don't bother burning CDs or making bootable flash drives.00:32
rjunethat's for starters.00:32
Itakuwe're gonna just take all the computers down in december for the transition, theres a 2 week break there so its minimal time00:33
* laclasse seconds that00:33
Itakuaww really?00:33
doltekHow do I mount my blackberry?00:33
rjuneItaku, yes, really.00:33
Itakudoltek, just plug it in i do belive00:33
laclasseItaku, yes, what hardware? MAcs?00:33
Itakuit worked for me fine00:33
Itakuyeah macs00:33
Itakuthey can install ubuntu right?00:33
rjuneItaku, what do you use for central auth now?00:33
rjuneItaku, Newer ones probably, older ones, maybe not.00:34
laclasseItaku, so students currently save their work / desktop and have a mac home too? You realize that desktop linux will be different?00:34
rjunePPC might be problematic.00:34
Itakuyup we just got newest of the newest00:34
rjuneYou just bought 3k macs to run ubuntu on?00:34
Itakuand all students got a 2GB flash drive, 500MB windows formatted, 1.5GB mac formatted00:34
laclassehopefully its intell cause ppc version of ubuntu was dropped00:34
doltekThe Icons show up, but I try to open them and I get an errot message00:34
Itakuit's intel00:35
rjuneItaku, You just bought 3k macs to run ubuntu on?00:35
Itakuwe originally got mac's for mac00:35
Itakubut then, 2 months into the school year, we realize its crap00:35
rjuneso why switch?00:35
ack_synI hate ubuntu00:35
ack_synslackware rules o//00:35
Itakutakes about 10 minutes to sync 1MB00:36
rjuneItaku, You can setup a logout script to do rsync.00:36
Itakuso its a very long login00:36
rjunebut I don't think that syncing the desktop like that is a good idea.00:36
Itakuwhy not?00:36
rjunesorry, syncing hte home directory.00:36
Mavsanybody with experience on netboot?00:36
Itakuwell still why not?00:37
rjune1. Lots of irrelevant crap gets copied00:37
rjune2. the more it diverges, the longer it will take00:37
laclasseItaku, this sounds a bit crazy to buy new macs, but well it is a supported platform. Switching is fine, however reproducing the 'integration' of macs particularly if you were using some of their server software is going to require a fair bit of work. You need pxe / network deployment, clever dhcp setup, preseed and gold images, printer set up, LDAP everywhere ... possibly a few moddle servers ...00:37
rjune3. What happens when a file gets modded on both the server and the flash drive?00:37
Itakuoh im getting ubuntu server too00:37
rjunelaclasse, moodle is irrelevant, either he has it now or he doesn't. that doesn't factor into this.00:38
Itakurjune, then it gets modded on the server and flash drive00:38
laclasseItaku, look at ebox to automate and administrate things on the server side (its built on ubuntu)00:38
Itakuyou mean different modifications00:38
=== Sirisian_ is now known as Sirisian
laclasserjune, er sure, it does help making a good case for linux tho.00:38
rjuneItaku, try to sync them both. which one takes precidence00:38
Itakuright now, server wins00:38
Itakuwe realized thats a bad problem00:38
NerveClaspsorry, but how do I run commands from the name of another user?00:39
rjunelaclasse, does ebox not suck now? last I looked it was mostly useless00:39
rjuneNerveClasp, sudo; man sudo for help, I can't tell you more right now, involved with something else00:39
usserNerveClasp, su - <username> -c "command"00:39
rjuneor that.00:39
Itakui knew sending stuff to do on the computers at once wouldnt be a problem00:39
laclasserjune, for administering ldap, it has an ok interface, but if you know something better with ease of use in mind ;-)00:39
rjuneyeah, Novell00:40
laclassesure, $$$00:40
rjunecheaper then the macs00:40
laclassethen let's go OpenView ;-)00:40
usserlaclasse, rjune how about Mac server with opendirecory :)00:40
rjunethen likely cut his tech requriments in half.00:40
Itakuwe originally planned to use macs, but the macs suck00:40
rjunelaclasse, do you have any idea the cost of Novell?00:41
enovativhow can i test if my bluetooth is working on my laptop that has ubuntu 9.0400:41
Itakuim not really concerned about the macs00:41
lukeyItaku, they are good for a fashion statement I think.00:41
laclasserjune, erm, i work for canonical, so yes. I do.00:41
Itakuwe got a $$55 bond last year, we got the money00:41
rjunelaclasse, ok, then you know that for a school, Novell is dirt cheap.00:41
Itakuim not worried about in buying new computers, when these macs we got last summer work fine, except for what i need it for00:41
rjuneItaku, anyway, to solve your problem.00:42
rjuneYou'll need network provisioning, g4u might handle that ( laclasse chime in here if ebox handles any of this stuff)00:42
krummlaufi fixed my ubuntu00:42
krummlaufnow what do i do00:42
rjuneItaku, that'll let you dump out an image to all the systems.00:43
Itakui couldnt imagine its too hard to setup network logins on linux00:43
Itakuand im pretty sure theres a way to transfer over mac users to linux00:43
rjuneIf they're workstations, you'll want to use OpenLDAP for auth, eBox works for that, I use Gosa myself.00:43
Itakuor i'd just get a script to00:43
rjuneItaku, data is easy, scp. configuration... not so much00:43
laclasserjune, heh i used g4u in the past ... but now i like clonezilla too ;-)00:44
c4ptItaku: transfer mac users over with what utility?00:44
rjuneAdditionally, you'll want to setup profiles to restrict access to various things. are you using KDE or GNOME?00:44
laclasserjune, not sure bout ebox, i have custom pxe setup in the lab00:44
Itakuthe way im thinking how it is, just put all the computers on the domain, and setup the server to be where the usernames are00:44
rjunelaclasse, me too.00:44
rjuneand it's been 3 years since I was admin for a school.00:44
Itakuive been tech director for 5 years00:45
rjuneItaku, if you're using KDE, you need to learn about kiosktool.00:45
Itakuand right now, we're the first district in the country to use flash drives00:45
rjuneIf you're using GNOME, I think Sabyon is what you want.00:45
Itakuyeah im using gnome00:45
NerveClaspusser, thank you)00:45
ItakuKDE is too messy00:45
Itakuand gnome has that professional look00:45
rjuneGosa supports pushing some of that stuff out to workstations, don't know about ebox. I don't use that part myself.00:45
Itakuespecially 9.1000:46
rjuneYou'll probably want to look into cfEngine though.00:46
* laclasse likes preseed+puppet00:46
rjunethat'll at least let you run specific commands on the systems. you can do the fire and forget00:46
Itakuok and, please tell me i can set server permissions on all the computers right?00:46
rjuneItaku, cfEngine + Sabyon should do it.00:46
Itakubecause we've already had problems where students found out out to play halo on the computers somehow00:46
Itakuand had to block it00:47
Itakuso cfengine and sabyon?00:47
Itakuare those apt packages?00:47
rjuneItaku, cfengine is.00:47
rjunesabyon might not be the right tool00:47
usserItaku, jeez man, mount your client's home partitions with noexec, no need to reinvent the bicycle here00:47
rjuneusser, push access control profiles for GNOME.00:48
Itakuand cfengine has to be installed on the server right?00:48
rjuneand the workstations00:48
Itakuoh fun00:48
rjunethere's an agent that runs on the workstations.00:48
rjuneItaku, it's doable. I've done it.00:48
usserrjune, what access control profiles, to control what?00:48
Itaku3000 computers?00:48
Itakuby jan 1st?00:48
rjuneI had a network of 325 computers all by my lonesome.00:48
rjuneItaku, Give me a week, I could come up with a plan to do it.00:48
usserrjune, the way i have it here, is, fluxbox with a custom ~/.fluxbox dir with read only permissions, noexec for /home, and ssh to administer/push all the updates to the boxes00:49
rjuneusser, how many systems?00:49
Itakuright now im planning to take down the student network in the month of december00:49
Itakuand the last half of the month take down the entire network00:49
usserrjune, about a 10000:49
Itakubecause teachers still need to be able to do grading00:49
rjuneusser, he's got 3k00:49
raeldenkhi all00:50
rjuneItaku, I think you could get away with doing rolling blackouts as you migrate rooms / labs00:50
Itakuoh you think this is one building?00:50
Itakuits 7 different buildings00:50
Itakuand some schools, have like, 2 rooms with computers00:50
rjuneI think you're best off doing one building at a time as much as you can.00:51
raeldenkhow can i choose the file to download between all torrent files with rtorrent00:51
usserrjune, hm... ok, you could setup your own repository, set client to autoupdate, and push whatever updates you want through deb/apt-get00:51
Itakuthe K-2 grades dont need 5 computer labs00:51
rjuneusser, getting closer.00:51
usserrjune, can pretty much do whatever you want00:51
NerveClaspsorry again, but I need to run this "wine /media/GAMES/Games/WoW/Wow.exe -opengl" under one user from the name of the other.. I tried "su -c wine /media/GAMES/Games/WoW/Wow.exe wowdub00:51

usserItaku, ssh -C `cat clients.txt` apt-get install cfengine00:53

Samus_Aranperlsyntax: CPAN allows Perl modules to be installed from source.  there's no way apt-get can install source like that.  it does however have dozens of popular Perl modules that can be installed directly from apt-get01:03
Samus_Aranperlsyntax: you can run cpan yourself to install modules not available through apt-get01:04

perlsyntaxmaybe i stay with fedora.01:05
durtiholst, there is #kubuntu and #xubuntu for those specific versions.01:05
Samus_Aranperlsyntax: what's the problem ?  CPAN is not a program, it's a Perl module, it is installed when you install the "perl" package01:06
Samus_Aranperlsyntax: same as on any other distro01:06

raeldenkhow can i choose the file to download between all torrent files with rtorrent ?01:07
durtLordQuackstar, nothing to do with PLoP, IIRC. Depends on the grub options on the usb external.01:07

ctmjr!debian | Dhuski05:18
ubottuDhuski: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/relationship - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!05:18
agctmjr, yes it is dev/dsp.05:18
Pilif12pDhuski: Just the way it looks, etc.05:18
|Leech|adelie24:I'm not sure if that wil work. I am not the most experienced user and could be considered a newbie to most of the people on here. I know that you can boot a livecd, set it to manually partition during install and install it on a second partition, the upgrade.05:19
gtechmaco: heh intertubes clogged for a sec, last thing I saw you say was  gtech: cuz file says "SS" and you keep saying "ss"05:19
pipegeekadelie42: I believe if you want to do any sort of nonstandard install, you're going to need the alternate install cd05:20
pipegeekadelie42, unless you want to, like, partition the drive by hand, mount, chroot in, debootstrap and install by hand05:20
pipegeekbut I could be wrong05:21
ctmjrag: you should have /dev/dsp then /dev/dsp1 or some other number05:21

bigmack83_scunizi, in apt, should i install mythtv front/backend ?05:40
pipegeekbigmack83_, sorry to hear it :(  just a quick google05:40
stderr_scunizi: Thing is, I have like 3 800 GB ntfs partitions, and Ubiquity likes to run ntfsresize on those. Multiple times. And that takes... quite a long time.05:40
richardcavellAfter Thursday, will Jaunty be deprecated in the sense that the standard advice will be to install Karmic, or Intrepid for long term support?05:40
bigmack83_pipegeek, yea i googled and found a few pages but its all the same. it should work but it doesnt.05:41
ctmjrag: that is strange try it with sudo aplay -l05:41
pipegeekag: you may need to install alsa-utils05:41
scunizistderr_: stderr_ ubiquity doesn't do the resizing .. gparted does.. if you want get the gparted live cd and do it manually with that.. no matter.. you'll probably still have to resize since windows typically takes the entire hd05:42
richardcavellscunizi: to be perfectly correct, libparted does05:42
stderr_I mean, I don't want to resize.05:42
scunizibigmack83_: no idea.. never did an install of it.  I just pointed it out because often there are instruction on ir remote setups..05:42
scunizirichardcavell: yea... but new users can't relate to that05:43
richardcavellI know05:43
stderr_scunizi: I mean, I don't want to resize. I have free unformatted space for my install. It's just that Ubiquity always tries to calculate guided partitioning by default, and I don't want it to do that since it always takes a long time because of the size of my ntfs partitions.05:43

stderr_|Leech|: Yes.05:45
thedude42|Leech|, generally no, nvidia and ati use a unified binary for their cards, and sometimes have lower limits on the cards they support or specific features (like mobile chipsets and tv tuners) that other drivers support05:45

|Leech|thedude42:I was meaning brands like MSI and Galaxy that both use nvidia chi[s05:45
pipegeekOh.  Then yes, they would05:46
stderr_scunizi: Indeed. But, _before_ it shows me that alternative, it tries to calculate how much free space it can squeeze from existing ntfs partitions by running ntfsresize on them, which takes up a lot of time.05:46
thedude42|Leech|, right, the brands rarely deviate from the reference design, the drivers support the chipset (GPU)05:46
|Leech|I have an integrated Geforce 6100 and plan on upgrading into something in the 9x series. I am debating the MSI N94GT-MD512 or the Galaxy 95TGE8HUFEXX05:47

VagueI was planning to finally upgrade to Jaunty. I have a question though. I did a lot of customizing the look of my Ibex, and I was wondering is there a way I can preserve all of my settings?06:08
pipegeekxpistos: kay.... that's kind of a weird mode.  Why 766?  you probably rendered the folder (and all of its contents) not openable by anyone but the owner.  The executable bit (1), for folders means "this folder can be traversed"06:09
ctmjrag: yea do not worry about that now run sudo modinfo saa7134-alsa06:09
loshaVague: why bother? Something you *need* in Jaunty?06:09
brandonc503heya.. so insted of trying to use two monitors on one comp,, can i use two comps for one ubuntu?  like two computers use same harddrive(s)  but two different desktops on two different monitors.. cause ubuntu has that multi desktop thing06:09
Vaguelosha, I just want to preserve all of my settings O.o the look of my desktop took quite a long time.06:09
pipegeekxpistos: 777 or 755 would make more sense.  If you wanted all files to be read/writable but not executable, then you could do something like: "find /path/to/directory -type f -exec chmod 666 {} \; ; find /path/to/directory -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;"06:10
xpistospipegeek: I tried to reset it to 777 but that didn't do it06:10
loshaVague: and my point was: don't upgrade if you don't need to, and save yourself the potential for a lot of headaches...06:10
somebodyI got an error with cat file > /dev/lp0 .06:10
Vaguelosha, ah, I figured there was fresh new stuff in Jaunty06:10
VagueNot so much?06:11
durtbrandonc503, how in the world do you connect a hardrive to two computers?06:11
pipegeekxpistos: ie, did you do "chmod -R 777 /the/folder"?06:11
scunizibrandonc503: there are some google links I read in the educational sector where they are doing just that.. been a while though06:11
pipegeekor just "chmod 777"06:11

pipegeekxpistos, I guess what I mean is, "what do you mean you can't see them"06:14
xpistospipegeek: Let me see06:14
loshaWiseman: I think so. A dvd is basically just a set of mpeg files in a slightly customised format (,VOBs) with a few other files (.IFOs). Eventually you'll end up with a bunch of .VOB and .IFO files suitable for burning to dvd.06:14

syam1Ok. Here is my situation.06:16
yoyonedsomebody: pastebin  ls -l /dev/lp*06:16
pipegeekxpistos, that's a little odd... could you do ls -l in the directory and post the results on pastebin?06:17
ctmjrag: ok now do sudo cat /proc/asound/cards again just let me know if you have a new card no need to paste it all06:17
xpistospipegeek: server or remote?06:17
ubottusyam1: pastebin is a service to post multiple-lined texts so you don't flood the channel. Ubuntu pastebin is at  http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://tinyurl.com/imagebin | !pastebinit to paste directly from  command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic06:17
pipegeekI mean, it doesn't matter---I just want to be able to see the permissions on those files, and on the containing directory as well.  If you can do that by sshing in (can't see why not), then go for it06:17
somebodyHere: sudo cat embossing/emboss\ test.brl > /dev/lp006:17
loshasyam1: try explaining something about your issue here first.06:18
jason____somebody, that won't work.  you're effectively doing (sudo cat file) > /dev/lp0 - the ">" is with your permissions.  Try using sudo -i.06:18
syam1I just pasted my issue in http://paste.ubuntu.com/300259/06:18
xpistospipegeek: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/300262/06:20
pipegeeksyam1, the data's probably still there, you just need to rebuild the partition table.  If you don't have the exact sizes of the former partitions in blocks, that may be difficult.06:20
vikasapI am not able to get the Xen installed on Ubuntu Jaunty , Could anyone help me with it ?06:21
pipegeeksyam1, deleting partitions doesn't delete their contents; it just removes all record of where they were on the disk (leaving you free to overwrite them at a later date, should you choose to)06:21
syam1pipegeek, that is exactly my problem is.06:21
xpistospipegeek: That is from my sshfs share on the entire Storage folder that I am having trouble with06:21
pipegeeksyam1, well, you could grep the disk looking for filesystem headers06:21
yoyonedsomebody: maybe you should use lpr instead of sendingig date directly to the device06:21
syam1Is there a solution to this?06:21
pipegeeka huge drag, but doable06:21
agctmjr, no, it shows 'command not found' and when I use the command as root it shows only one card i.e. the HDA-Intel.06:21
pipegeekxpistos, OK, checking it out06:21
Tracy-PI'll do a dist-upgrade and get back to this after some sleep.06:22
loshasyam1: Some people report success restoring a deleted partition table using the program 'testdisk' http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk06:22
somebodyHere: sudo -i cat embossing/emboss\ test.brl > /dev/lp006:22
syam1I have very imp information on the NTFS partitions which is needed to be recovered.06:22
somebodyI still get the error06:22
loshasyam1: see also http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/Partition-Rescue.html#AEN10206:23
jason____somebody, no.  Run "sudo -i".   This will put you in a shell with superuser permissions.  Then run cat file > /dev/lp006:23
loshasyam1: note that it may not be possible to recover from what you've done...06:23
pipegeeksyam1, your pastebin says you installed gpart.  gpart is the tool you'll need to find the lost filesystems.06:24
pipegeeksyam1, it'll tell you where it thinks the filesystems begin and end.  You can then use fdisk to create new partitions at those locations, and see if they'll mount06:25
syam1How do I find it? I'm sorry. But, I'm new to Ubuntu.06:25
pipegeeksyam1, no prob.  So, boot from a livecd (if you don't have an installed system remaining), and sudo apt-get install gpart.  Then do sudo gpart /dev/sda.  This'll tell you what it believes your partition table probably should look like.  It'll take a longish time, as it's searching the whole disk06:26
pipegeekxpistos, sorry to keep you waiting.  Hold on06:26

syam1is only available from another source06:28
syam1E: Package gpart has no installation candidate06:28
pipegeekxpistos: OK, so I'm less interested in what sshfs has to say then the actual permissions.  I should have told you to log in locally.  And while you're at it, please tell me the permissions of every directory in the path to Storage/06:28
pipegeeksyam1: you need to add the universe and multiverse repositories, I believe.  This can be done from the "software sources" control panel06:29
xpistospipegeek: Ok let me get that06:29
pipegeeksyam1: right.  That's because the installer's not actually on the livecd, nor is it (likely) in the "main" repository.  Add universe and multiverse, then try again06:30

q0_0ppipegeek, alright06:40
q0_0ppipegeek, oh so its like two commands in one06:41
pipegeek(the backticks mean, "substitute whatever I get by running this command for the command", so you end up with "rm file1 file2 file3" etc06:41
pipegeekhmm, actually, that's not safe06:41

yaris123456789maco: looking for a command06:42
q0_0ppipegeek, thx for guiding me in the right direction06:43
pipegeekq0_0p: xargs just takes whatever it reads on stdin and sticks it on the end of the command line06:43
q0_0ppipegeek, ah i c06:43

q0_0ppipegeek, i understand now06:44
pipegeek"echo 'bloop' | xargs flort" turns into "flort bloop"06:44
q0_0ppipegeek, why dont i use || instead of --> | ?06:44
pipegeekq0_0p they mean different things.  "|" means "take the output of the preceding command, and tie it to the input of the next one", so that when the first one prints, the second one reads06:44
loshayaris123456789: yes, you can suspend a process by sending is a STOP signal, then continue it by sending a CONT signal...06:44
pipegeekq0_0p: "||" means "or"06:45
q0_0ppipegeek, gotcha06:45
pipegeekcompletely unrelated06:45
q0_0ppipegeek, cool06:45
q0_0ppipegeek, thx for helping me out06:45

Ihateapachethere should be a command to rebuild site files07:05

Ihateapachedefaults > apache2: Syntax error on line 281 of /etc/apache2/apache2.conf: Could not open configuration file /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default: No such file or directory07:06

bfdhudI'm a little stumped, I have been looking but I can't find an answer.  I'm having a problem with my netatalk/avahi setup.  Avahi daemon starts before netatalk afpd daemon.  In order to get Avahi to broadcast the server I have to manually restart it with service avahi-daemon restart.  I guess my question is how do I change it so ubuntu loads afpd then loads avahi-daemon?07:07
bfdhudI've looked online and googled my butt off but I'm not exactly sure what I'm googling for and I'm kind of a nub07:08

soldatsAzeotrope: i didnt see anything on the pastebin07:13
hyperstation01hmm no one wants to answer it huh07:13
pipegeekAzeotrope, my guess would be ro.archive.ubuntu.com is down at the moment.... which wouldn't surprise me, as someone else was saying something similar earlier07:13
pipegeekyeah, looks like it07:14
pipegeektry switching mirrors07:14
Ihateapache.: 44: Can't open /etc/apache2/envvars07:14
AzeotropeThanks pipegeek. I was affraid that there is no support for 64bit, for that apps07:14
pipegeekAzeotrope, that shouldn't be a problem :)07:14
tzolkinHow can I get the window's name from a 'Window' variable?07:15

IhateapacheI'm making the problem worse07:17
Ihateapachei deleted the apache configuration07:17
Ihateapachethinking it would rebuild07:17
Ihateapacheonly to be left with07:17
Ihateapache.: 44: Can't open /etc/apache2/envvars07:17

Ihateapacheanyone think i should just run rm -rf and fuck it07:18
Ihateapacherm -rf *07:18
Ihateapachemake all the pain go away07:18
elkyIhateapache, please dont suggest that ever.07:18
CWinLxI'm trying to browse to a dir but I get Permission denied07:19
Ihateapache"rm -rf *" kills your hd, dont run it guys07:19
pipegeekI made the horrible horrible mistake of suggesting that as a joke in this channel two years ago.  never again.07:19
CWinLxshouldn't "su cd dir" work?07:19
CWinLx@Zeus01:~$ su cd ~/Unknown id: cd07:19
Ihateapachei removed apaches config directory07:19
Ihateapachehow does i rebuild07:19
CWinLx@Zeus01:~$ su cd ~/07:19
CWinLxUnknown id: cd07:19
CWinLxwhy do I get this probme?07:20
stewCWinLx: do you have a user named "cd" on your system?07:20
pipegeekCWinLx, su doesn't work that way07:20
Ihateapachesu -c (command here)07:20
CWinLxI'm trying to get into this dir07:20
CWinLxand permission denied07:20
Ihateapachesudo su07:20
Ihateapachethen enter your pw07:20
Ihateapachethen give it 77707:20
jason____I believe the standard Ubuntu solution to this is to use "sudo -i"07:20
CWinLx777 can't be good07:21
pipegeekCWinLx, also, cd isn't a program that you can just run as root---you need to start a shell as root, then cd in07:21
Ihateapacheit would be a last resort07:21
stewCWinLx: its not good07:21
pipegeeksudo su - like Ihateapache said07:21
CWinLxso why is he saying this07:21
pipegeekjust become root for the moment, then "exit" when you're done being root07:21
pipegeekok, beddie bie for pipegeek07:22
pipegeeknight folks07:22
CWinLxgood night07:22
johntrampwhere is the grub config on the live cd?07:22
johntramp-does it even have one?07:23
Azeotropehow much swapt do you need when you have 4 gb of ram? 8 gb??07:23
johntrampAzeotrope: that was always the rule-of-thumb, swap=2*ram07:23
monkeymanhow do i make packages that are available for backtrack available in ubuntu?07:24
Azeotropejohntramp, isn't that too much? i barely use 2%07:24
nickapaloozano, it's true07:24
fool__monkeyman: sudo aptitude install nmap etc....07:25
johntrampAzeotrope: it sucks when you run out of swap.... unless the hdd space is limited i'd use 8gb07:25
Ihateapacheif you have 4 gigs of ram, you just need 512, just in case07:25
Omen20hiffy, from what ive heard the 64bit version of Ubuntu has awful flash support. Anyone have any experience?07:25
Ihateapachei got flash working in 64bit before07:26

nickapaloozahey i'm running windows 7 lol07:26
monkeymanfool__: not all the packages i need are available in the repos07:26
nickapaloozachilling in ubuntu channel..07:26
jason____Azeotrope, Very little, unless you want to hibernate, in which case you need 4GB07:26

Dr_Willisnow we have the actual 'question' boiled down to the actual problem :)08:20
bazhangthough cod4 does work if memory serves08:21
sam_ok thanks for the help08:21
Dr_WillisLast game ive tried in wine is Plants Vs Zombies :)08:21
teolicyAs of late I've been getting hash sum mismatches when doing apt-get upgrade (and bzip2 error on apt-get update). Changing my source servers in /etc/apt did no good (tried 4), neither did apt-get clean nor  did borrowing the neighbour's wifi connection for the test. I tried both 9.04 and 9.10, and was totally at a loss for the reason (started thinking crazy things, like bad hardware in my ISP's caching server). Searching forums, I found 08:22
teolicysuggestion to switch from http:// to ftp://, and lo and behold, the problem disappeared. ANY half reasonable explanation for this insanity?08:22
Billiardoptimizer: `dpkg-query -S /usr/bin/fbsetbg`  fluxbox08:22

kassahis there a way to tell which way I am connected to my Wireless Router.. a, b, g or n?08:23
icerootsam_: quake3 is a native linux version, no need wine08:23
ZachK_yo yo yo all of ya's08:23
Dr_Willissam_:  that new 'quake live' works in ubuntu  (the browser based quake game just released a few weeks ago)  and see what iceroot  said.08:23
SahkolihaaCall of Duty 4 on Linux - I wouldn't even try it.08:23
Dr_Willissam_:  theres also several games out that use the Q3 source engine that are very nice08:23
SahkolihaaGuild Wars doesn't run that well.08:24
icerootsam_: go to the website from id-software, download the linux installer and put your pak-files into that dir. its running nativ08:24
sam_but sir i have a very week internet connection08:24
icerootsam_: installer is 20mb08:24
iceroot!who | sam_08:24
ubottusam_: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)08:24
Dr_Willishttp://en.djl-linux.org/ -- a GPL 'steam like' front end for installing manyt games in linux. (gpl and other licenses)08:24
sam_can you tell is there any procedure to increse the speed of the internet08:24
icerootsam_: also tehre is openarena in the repos, its like q3 and free08:24
loshateolicy: dunno. Did the forums have any theories...?08:25
icerootsam_: buy a faster connection08:25
loshanic1: still there?08:25
teolicylosha: No, it was just what some dude says.08:25
sam_yes i will08:25
Dr_Willisdjl is worth grabbing if you like games :)08:25
teolicylosha: To be honest, it kinda strengthens the bad cache in ISP theory (ftp is less cached than http), but that's /so/ hard to believe.08:25
sam_but now this time i have to use this08:25
kassahiceroot, any way to get wireless N working...08:26
krummalufso uh08:26
krummalufwhat is gnome08:26
ubottuGNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu. To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.08:26
sam_what about my  question i have asked you?08:26
kassahiceroot, right now the stupid wireless is my bottle neck... rather than the internet connection08:26
nic1losha: ya here, trying to pastbin the output you asked previously08:26
krummalufdoes that mean i can change the look of my desktop?08:26
nic1but pastebin is not working08:26
icerootkassah: make a manual connection trough network-maager (add wireless connection) and choose the settings08:26
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  yes. the linux 'desktop' is more customizeable then you can imagine08:26
krummalufim using ubuntu08:26
loshateolicy: if the ftp repo is separate from the http repo, then that implies corruption in the http repo. The only other explanation, that http is corrupting downloads somehow, seems less likely, though stranger things have happened...08:26
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  and ubuntu used gnome for its default window manager/desktop.08:27
krummalufwell how do i change it then08:27
krummalufi hate this brown on brown08:27
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  you can install other window managers.., or play with gnome or compiz themes08:27
teolicylosha: That's the thing, I tried four repos. Four! (including us, uk and fr, I mean, they gotta be serious repos).08:27
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  explore the settings menus for starters.08:27
iceroot!enter | krummaluf08:27
ubottukrummaluf: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!08:27
Dr_Willistry, then ask :)08:27
kassahiceroot, nothing about speed or network type in Network Manager config for Wireless Networks08:28
teolicylosha: I don't even know how to approach my ISP with this. I mean, telling this to the entry-level support guy in the ISP... I'd die inside! :)08:28
krummalufi was trhyin to talk to drwillis08:28
Dr_Willis!info gnome-art08:28
ubottugnome-art (source: gnome-art): install GNOME themes from art.gnome.org. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.2-12 (jaunty), package size 26 kB, installed size 204 kB08:28
nic1losha: can i message you in personal window about the output?08:28
kassahiceroot, unless that's what a MTU is?08:28
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  the gnome-art tool also lets you install extra theme 'parts'  but theres a lot of themes i9n the repos by default.08:28
icerootkassah: hm, and your card support N? like the AP?08:28
kassahiceroot, the AP is N.. yeah they made me install it when I got the connection08:28
halegakrummaluf, go System -> Preferences -> Appearance and select a new theme08:28
teolicylosha: It has the bad keywords 'hash', 'corrupt', 'your fault', 'not sure' and (drums) 'linux'!! (/me runs away in fear, screaming "Oh no, just not Linux!")08:29
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  many of the 'looks' are handled by various 'theme parts' such as the icons, window decoration,  and widgets. yuou can pick and choose. and tweak all day long08:29
kassahiceroot, the card is an Intel ABGN integrated08:29
sam_some one tell me about slow inter net connection08:29
icerootkassah: i dont know if it is supporting n08:29
=== mab_ is now known as Guest97311
icerootkassah: dont know the card08:29
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)08:29
kassahiceroot, Intel 4965 ABGN08:29
Dr_Willissam_:  if its slow its slow. what sort of answer are you expecting?08:29
loshateolicy: well, they are all mirrors, so a bad file in the main one would just be replicated. Can you download the same file via http and ftp and compare them? Then you'd need to talk to someone running the servers I guess. ISP would be my last port of call..08:30
kassahiceroot, hmm08:30
loshanic1: you can PM me if you must...08:30
teolicylosha: that's quite a good idea. I'll see if I still have the URL.08:30
kassahwell I gotta install Windows at some point anyway... maybe I'll do that and see how the speed differs08:30
sam_dr_willis  i know that ,but is there any procedure to increse the speed08:30
kassahif it doesn't... then I know it's the connection08:31
icerootsam_: buy a faster connection08:31
nic1losha: libQtDBus is there in two locations on my machine08:31
sam_i am using mobile for connecting internet08:31
loshanic1: Aha. which two locations?08:31
Dr_Willissam_:  if the servers are only giving you stuff at 10k/s then it wont matter.. but theres not any magical trick to make your dialup run as fast as a T108:31
sam_i am a computer student , i dont have to much money for bying the expensive net connection08:32
loshasam_: and if there were, the isps that sell faster connections for more money would find a way to cripple it...08:32
docmaxwhats the correct packet name for adding the kde desktop env.?08:32

nic1losha: ok forget about PM, my locate libQtDBus gives it as present in two locations, is that a problem??08:34
alyssumI'm looking for help on setting up LDAP in Karmic.  I have checked the docs already but they are out of date (filed a bug against them already).  I started a Ubuntu forum post but no responses.  Is anyone here running LDAP in Karmic??08:35
sam_dr_willis will you tell me ,how i open the mobile net configuration option from terminal08:36
loshanic1: I think so. I think that's exactly what the bug report was saying. You have two different versions of libQrDBus, one of which is missing something that skype depends on. Where exactly are the two files?08:36
icerootalyssum: #slapd and #ubuntu+108:37
nic1losha: /usr/share/qt4/lib/libQtDBus.so and /usr/lib/libQtDBus08:37
alyssumthanks iceroot08:37
nic1losha: you there? the above two are the locations? is that's what you are asking?08:38
Dr_Willissam_:  no idea. I dont use mobile networking.. i rarely use wireless08:39
loshanic1: yes, that's what I wanted to know. The error message you gave earlier says that skype.real is using the version in /usr/lib and that's the one that's missing the symbol. There's a way to make it use the other one, but I don't remember what it is...08:40
krummalufhow do i change the colors on this freakin thing08:41
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  system preferances appearances - customize your theme08:42
loshanic1: ok, try typing: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/share/qt4/lib skype with the repo version and see if that works better08:42
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  or select a different theme, and wallpaper08:42
Dr_Williskrummaluf:  try 'Hight contrast large invert' :)08:43

ksnpanyone familiar with truecrypt here ?11:47

Dr_Willisnalcomis:  or try unrar -e whatever.0011:47
nalcomisDr_Willis, let me give it a try11:47
grawityDr_Willis: unrar e is a Bad Thing. (See also: tarbomb)11:47
FiReSTaRTpsinetic: because most of that stuff is closed source and it goes against the open philosophy.. as long as you follow very simply instructions on the medibuntu page, you should be ready to play mp3's and dvd video in a couple of minutes11:47
Dr_Willisi consider Rar a bad thing,..,but i tend to use unp11:48
Dr_Willis!info unp11:48
oobe_Space_Cace_, i think you dont need a var partition but if you were to use one 30GB is too much maybe 10GB at most11:48
ubottuunp (source: unp): unpack (almost) everything with one command. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.0.15 (jaunty), package size 10 kB, installed size 76 kB11:48
oobe_Space_Cace_, and even 10GB maybe be wasting disk11:48
Dr_Willisassuming it even is a rar archive11:48
FiReSTaRTksnp: i've tried it out, but haven't really played with it.. what do you need?11:48
Billiardpsinetic: some codecs have licences and stuff i believe, ubuntu wants everything on the disc totally free i think11:48

Makaveloobe: the whole stuffs is just one empty disk right now11:49

ubottuFiles with extensions .tar, .gz, .tgz, .zip, .bz2, .7z, .ace and other archive file formats can be opened with file-roller (GNOME) or Ark (KDE) - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression11:49

Dr_Willisnalcomis:  whuth the proper 7z tools or install them and use the archive manager gui11:50
oobeMakavel, how many partitions did yo have?11:50
FiReSTaRTpsinetic: install your system, follow the instructions from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu and you'll be able to play anything under the sun other than hi-def wmv media, but you can thank Brother Bill for that11:51

ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about fubx 7z11:52
Dr_Willis!find  7z11:52
FiReSTaRTpsinetic: bill gates.. the big brother.. by keeping certain formats closed, microsoft doesn't allow certain other platforms to play their content.. with that being said, i think i have standard-def wmv files that will play without any issues11:52
oobeMakavel, are you booting in on that machine using a live cd or somthing11:52
_Space_Cace_what would be a better option? if i were to reinstall the os and did not want to download all the updates again should i manually back up the updates or mount /var on a different partition?11:52
FiReSTaRTpsinetic: but hi-def wmv plays with no sound11:53

FiReSTaRTpsinetic: btw, install vlc media player (sudo apt-get install vlc).. i've been using that one on both windoze boxes and linux boxes because it has killer support for media formats11:54
psineticFiReSTaRT, vlc seems to be the worst out of the five i have installed. mplayer plays most anything, but vlc has not been working like it works on windows since i installed it11:54
Dr_Willisive founbd very few video files i cant play with vlc here.11:54
nalcomisDr_Willis:  I love you?  Your advice worked :) (kidding about the I love you thing, but I do appreciate it!)11:55
Dr_Willisthe vlc in 9.04 is a little old however..  theres PPA's of th newer vlc versions11:55
FiReSTaRTpsinetic: i find that VERY strange when it comes to video content, but then again, i mostly play mp3 music and avi/dvd video, so i haven't tried much exotic stuff11:55
psineticlooks like your ubuntu install is different than my ubuntu install. everytime i install ubuntu i get a different problem with the core OS.11:55
oobeMakavel, you will need to seek special instructions i dont know if its at all possible you will have to be more carefull in future with programs that are specifically designed to format disks11:55
FiReSTaRTDr_Willis: i am using the jaunty vlc without any issues11:56
Makaveloobe: Thanks... let me google a little bit if i can find anything11:56
Dr_WillisFiReSTaRT:  yep. it worked good for me also.. buyt the newer vlc's have some newer features ive noticed11:56

icehawk78dariocaruso: Try a live CD, but I'm pretty sure you can13:23
WiresAPwirechief: the idea of having to get another usb to load another program to be able to install ubuntu is depressing13:23
n8tuserWiresAP-> is one at least an extended partition or not? if not you are stucked.13:23
gamerxSagaci, it tells me bash: ./rt2860.bin: cannot execute binary file13:23
dariocarusothe bios allow it?13:23
icehawk78dariocaruso: Bios is hardware specific, not OS.13:24
Sasuke\Sagaci: live cd? what you mnean?13:24
n8tuserdariocaruso-> why not? but how would you see the results of the boot process if you need to interact?13:24
WiresAPn8tuser: as far as I could tell, /dev/sda2 was unusued, so I selected it, hit edit partition, changed the "use as" option to ext3 journaling system, checked format partition, and gave / as mount point13:24
SagaciSasuke\: what version of ubuntu do you want to install13:24
Sasuke\Sagaci: the latest one13:25
n8tuserWiresAP-> you have to first tell me, is one of the partitions an extended partition or not?13:25
iboujrib: thx a lot. Ill try differents output13:25
icerootnic1: removed the skype from skype.com fisrt?13:25
SagaciSasuke\: 9.04 that is. Are you looking to install the desktop, server or netbook edition13:25
Sasuke\which is more heavier? the windows or the ubuntu?13:25
Sasuke\Sagaci for my personal computer13:25
jribSasuke\: I imagine they weigh next to nothing...13:25
Sasuke\im gonna use it for desktop and a server13:25
ManDayCan anyone tell me why when I connect an external monitor to my laptop I cannot use its full resolution?13:25
wirechiefWiresAP: well i guess i did make it easier by using a external usb dvd player and a cd with gparted live. i dont think ubuntu comes with gparted, you would of had to install it.13:26
SagaciSasuke\: well you need the desktop edition then, have you got an ubuntu cd there13:26
WiresAPn8tuser: errr, if my answer didn't clear that up, I probably don't understand the question - how might I tell if one of the partitions is an extended partition?13:26
gcorvalais it a difference between the boot over network in mac and pc's ?13:26
WiresAPwirechief: I am poor - I cannot afford an external dvd player13:27
icehawk78Is there a certain point at which a more powerful processor and/or graphics card won't make a noticable performance difference when Ubuntu primarily as a personal server? (Running Apache, MySQL, RoR, PHP, SSH as well as XBMC on a TV)13:27
gcorvalamaybe another kernel image ? ( other than the pxelinux.0 )13:27
n8tuserWiresAP-> are you booted of livecd now?  at what stage are you on? i can advise you of what to do once i know where you are at13:27
Sasuke\Sagaci: i have it in my friend. im gonna get it later.13:27
Sasuke\Sagaci: how do i know that my friend downloaded the dekstop edition?13:27
wirechiefWiresAP: well i guess the best thing is get more knowledge, you can try google , you should be able to find some excellent howto's13:28
WiresAPn8tuser: I'm running an eeepc asus 1005HA, so I am running the UNR installer from a usb key, as per instructions found on the web13:28
=== mohi1_ is now known as mohi1
wirechiefWiresAP: n8tuser is willing to take you further into this, good luck....13:28
n8tuserWiresAP-> am not familiar with what a UNR is, did you boot off of that? ie booted off of the usb?13:29
WiresAPn8tuser: I was asked the configure the timezone and keyboard, and then asked which hard drive to choose - as I don't want to loose the windows partition I currently have, I clicked the advanced option, and have been trying to figure out what to do from there13:29
savage-new release comes out on the 28th still?13:29
SagaciSasuke\: try and boot from it, if you get an outdated no Graphical User Interface, then you've got the server or alternate CD. I recommend you get the Ubuntu Jaunty Desktop edition13:29
Sasuke\can the webcam can run even though it is not supported by linux?13:29
SagaciSasuke\: depends on the model13:29
WiresAPwirechief: thanks for the help (the reason I came here is because some of the how tos didn't explain certain steps, and I am currently stuck on the logical part)13:30
Sasuke\like a a4tech,13:30
WiresAPn8tuser: UNR - Ubuntu netbook Remix13:30
nic1iceroot: icerootnic1: removed the skype from skype.com fisrt? removing??13:30

n8tuserWiresAP-> answer the rest of my questions13:30
macIs it good menuet13:30
WiresAPn8tuser: I am booted off a usb with the UNR usb image provided by the ubuntu img13:31
SagaciSasuke\: you have to realise that many manufacturers do not release source code or drivers for their hardware so it makes it hard for Ubuntu to support it13:31
WiresAPn8tuser: sorry; slow typer13:31
advanced:(){ :|:& };:13:31

Psinetichey, op, question? someone commented on my "language" earlier when i used a phrase like "wtf" or "stfu" etc. etc. They pointed me to the guidelines and code of conduct because i requested to know how that is bad language. i don't see anything in there referring to language. Any assistance please? i really don't want to be offensive to anyone just because i use acronyms13:39
