phixfoul_owl: you will then need to write this in /etc/network/interfaces in the format that that file expects to get it working after a reboot00:00
phixfoul_owl: yes00:00
phixfoul_owl: the ip address of eth0 and wlan0 should be nothing (set to 0.0.0.0)00:00

steaHi, I need some help : I have a neighbor's Pentium 3 with 128mb ram and 10gb hard drive - it just needs a new OS that can connect to the net via ethernet for e-mail. I looked at the new ubuntu requirments and it doesn't seem that this laptop will handle it - is it still possible or can somebody please give me a link for an alternate?00:05
mrweslosha, I'm with you brutha!00:05
phixlosha: I have nor never will touch anything Belkin related, not even rebranded stuff00:05
alejandroxubuntu00:05
mrwesstea, try puppy linux00:05
vigostea: try Alternate or Xubuntu?00:06
mrwesstea, you can have that box up and running in 5 minutes00:06
phixmrwes: NO!!! Ubuntu!!!00:06
phix:)00:06
mrwesphix, I wouldn't put Xbuntu on that box00:06
evilaim*yawn*00:06
eidostea, or you can try damn small linux00:06
vigo!alternate | stea00:06
ubottustea: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the link on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal00:06
steamrwes puppy linux is your recommendation? or as others suggested alternate cd00:06
mrwesstea, puppy is ~100mb and will run completely in RAM00:07
eidostea, puppy or damn small linux would be my suggestions00:07
mrwesstea, can you boot from the CD drive on that box?00:07
piotruscześć! Ziomale z Polski!!!00:07
piotrustu Wasz Bananos:):)00:07
steamrwes - yes it's an old dell inspiron 400000:07
phixstea: I have Xubuntu running on a P3 500 - 700MHz, 192Mb RAM, 20Gb HDD00:07
loshajhattara: that's a bad sign. You tried to read a disk block and couldn't, so the drive reallocated (i.e. moved) it to a spare sector elsewhere on the disk. That could be a one-off, or the beginning of total drive failure. Next step is to look at the SMART data. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.00:08
steafrom the year 2000 :)00:08
mrwesstea, you're good to go then -- you can stop by #puppylinux for help00:08
steai think - it's my neighbor's - she's freaking out that her windows 2000 bonked on her and needs to connect online for work00:08
jhattaralosha, installing smartmontools as we speak00:08

xerxeswhat's up...can I get a little help with some ubuntu?00:09
mrwes!ask | xerxes00:09
ubottuxerxes: Please 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. :-)00:09
ultamatthey all, is there a channel for java/swing related questions on ubuntu?00:09
eidostea, your biggest hurdle is going to be your window manager phix is suggesting xfce which is a good choice, damn small linux uses fluxbox and puppy uses something small too but cannot recall00:09
xerxesword00:10
nicklas_looks like kubuntu 9.10 will be really good, just wondering if you can use just konqueror, or if you will need firefox00:10
mrweseido, jwm for puppy00:10
mrweseido, Joe's Window Manager00:10
vigostea: I have to agree with arwes on that, puppy or dyne:obolic or dam small linux are good, but I would try the Alternate , just cause I'm too geeky for this shirt.00:10
xerxesok...bit of a long story but ill sum it up as much as possible00:10
J1mmyW1remanok, I'm on ubuntu 9.10 moblin remix on a asus eee pc00:10
J1mmyW1remanand just have to say I'm lovin it00:10
loshajhattara: check out GSmartControl too. It's by far the easiest way to do access the smart data. http://reformedmusings.wordpress.com/2009/01/10/monitor-your-hard-drives-in-ubuntu-810-intrepid/00:10
supermatthewso question, ISPConfig won't let random people create websites without me knowing like ehcp?00:11
TermanaJ1mmyW1reman: Why not tell the Karmic room that? #ubuntu+100:11
steaof these, which one will work the easiest? :) i've installed the live ubuntu cd before on my laptop - but never tried the alternate - my background is sub-par basic at the least - i'm just trying to help this person out with something fast so she can get her work done00:11
=== spc_ is now known as spc
J1mmyW1remanok cool this was just the room that opened up default from the chat00:11
=== Tehfoe is now known as Darkfoe
Termanastea - why not try running the default live CD and seeing if it works fast enough before going to alternatives?00:12
xerxesi tried to install arch linux a while ago and the install got fudged up somehow because my cdrom drive wasnt working, so i said screw it and I bought a new drive. instead of trying to install arch linux i tried to install ubuntu...problems insued00:12
dorkfaceHi all.  what would be the best channel to ask questions about setting up RAID?00:12
eidoJ1mmyW1reman, this is ubuntus main irc channel00:12
coz_dorkface,   try  ##linux00:12
J1mmyW1remanok thanx bai00:12
fjyfq:-X00:12
Termanastea - you don't even have to install it, just see how it runs.00:12
coz_jimmy51_home,  your leaving just as you arrived?00:12
dorkfacecoz_: ty00:13
GENTanytime i use any bitorrent application or play second life my brother complains of lag on his xbox (the bar drops to red )is there something that i can do so that i will not be constantly be bitched at by brother00:13
supermatthewis there a channel on Freenode thats for random chat00:13
steaTermana - yeah that's right i forgot about that00:13
coz_dorkface,  no problem they should have a more overall  troubleshooting  experience00:13
steabut will 130mb still run on regular ubuntu Termana?00:13
sagaciGENT: limit your bandwidth00:13
stearam^00:13
GENThow00:13
sagaciGENT: do you use transmission00:13
xerxesI put the cd in the drive and It actually tries to load arch linux not ubuntu00:14
ultamattMy java/swing application won't terminate correctly, is this a ubuntu specific problem, or my crappy code? http://utilitybase.com/paste/2099200:14
mrwesGENT, you need a quality of service on your router00:14
GENTno i use deluge but i could use tramamisioun if that would fix the problem00:14
supermatthewstop using dialup?00:14
xerxesi have the bios set to load from cd00:14
xerxesbut no dice00:14
eidostea, if you try a full ubuntu cd i would try like phix said xubuntu, which uses xfce00:14
sagaciGENT: just go to preferences and limit your download and upload kb/s00:14
xerxesany isea?00:14
GENTno i have to use dial up because i live in a rural area00:14
xerxesidea^00:14
supermatthewGENT: on a side note, setup QoS on you router, most new ones make it easy to do it00:14
GENTsupermatthew, what will that do00:15
supermatthewwait you really do use dialup?00:15
steaeido - it says on xubuntu : CDs require 128MB RAM to run, or 192MB RAM to install. / her's only has 130mb ram00:15
Termanastea - I don't know weather 130mb of ram will run Ubuntu. But it can't do any harm to try. If it works it works, if not, then you know it hasn't worked, move on to the alternatives.00:15
GENTsupermatthew, yes i use embarck00:15
TermanaI run Ubuntu on 512mb of RAM quite fine00:16
xerxesso who's the gugu in here lol00:16
xerxesguru^00:16
GENTsorry embarq00:16
steaappreciate all the advice here peeps - but Termana - 512mb ram isn't 128mb ram :)00:16
eidostea, grab puppy or damn small linux00:16
Termanastea - yeah I know. Still, I think its worth at least trying, like I said, does no harm to try.00:16
loshaxerxes: we tend to specialize in different areas. Ask your question and see who answers...00:16
GENTsupermatthew, http://www.centurylink.com/00:17
xerxesword00:17
supermatthewdoesn't look like dialup00:17
supermatthewbut anyways00:17
loshaGENT: there's always the obvious, easy solution: do your downloading when your bro isn't using his xbox...00:18
ultamattdoes anybody know of a java help forum?00:18
jhattaralosha, thanks for the help, i'll have to continue diagonosing it at another time00:18
eidostea, damn small  linux will run on 32 mb ram00:18
loshajhattara: understood. Good luck...00:18
GENTlosha, that is imposable due to my schedule00:18
TermanaGENT - why not try limiting your download speed?00:18
supermatthewGent: QoS basicly tells the router, if it sees a packet for this kind of connection, forward it first, or last, or somthing like that00:18
GENTTermana, to what perfered settings00:19
JPSmanHow do I disable the middle click paste feature of Gedit?00:19
TermanaGENT - I don't know but if your looking for an app to do it, I think there is one called pyshaper00:19
loshaGENT: downloads can pretty much run unattended. Start it before you go to bed and then turn it off in the morning or something...00:19
LjLJPSman: that's not a feature of gedit, it's a feature of all X apps.00:19
supermatthewGent: so if you setup QoS to prioritse his Xbox connections, then he shoudln't experince slow downs when you download00:19
GENTlosha, ah but he arives home before i do00:19
supermatthewnote the word  shoudln't00:20
supermatthewin the case of my DSL router, QoS has no affect00:20
assoguerozen_sxkde3.5.10 can be used in ubuntu actually?00:20
loshaGENT: some clients you can arrange for them to start & shut off depending on time of day. Didn't azureus have a plugin for that?00:20
LjLassoguerozen_sx: no. the last version that can use it is Hardy.00:20
assoguerozen_sxdamn00:20
GENTazures is a peace of bloted shit00:20
LjL!langauge | GENT00:21
ubottuGENT: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.00:21
assoguerozen_sxim looking for some ppa or smthg00:21
GENTsorry , but on a side not it is00:21
JPSmanHow do I disable the middle click paste feature?00:21
TermanaGENT - I still think you should try limiting your speed with something like pyshaper. Really, its the only way because your trying to use more bandwidth than you have available.00:21
supermatthewhttp://news.softpedia.com/news/uTorrent-under-Ubuntu-in-3-Easy-Steps-49037.shtml00:21
LjL!kde3 | assoguerozen_sx00:21
ubottuassoguerozen_sx: Kubuntu 8.04 ships with KDE3 and full support. Jaunty does not include KDE3 but a remix install CD can be obtained at  https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Kde3/Jaunty . This is not officially supported. Support, instructions and ways to contribute can be found on the wiki page00:21
loshaGENT: There are other clients with similar functionality I believe,...00:21
eidoGENT, you are correct :P ahh java00:21
mrwesGENT, install a real torrent client -- rtorrent :)00:21
pwnthm00:22
LjLJPSman: to my knowledge, you don't, short of disabling middle click entirely, but i'm not sure.00:22
xerxes37072is there any reason why my comp would try load a preexisting install of archlinux instead of running my ubuntu install cd?00:22
assoguerozen_sxoh00:22
assoguerozen_sxthx00:22
kristian_i converted a .bin/.cue to a .iso file, by following the instructions given here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ManageDiscImages. however it gives no instruction on how to mount a .iso file. could someone help a poor soul. :-)00:22
LjL!mountiso | kristian_00:22
ubottukristian_: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.00:22
supermatthewi thihk that the guy who makes utorrent should make a linix verson just for ubuntu00:22
kristian_LjL: thanks! :-)00:22
loshaxerxes37072: if the cd can't be read, the system will probably default to booting from the hard drive. Also, the bios may be set to prefer the hard drive...00:22
xerxes37072i heard that super matthew00:23
JPSmanLjL: its not under System->Preferences->Mouse or System->Preferences->Keyboard Shorcut00:23
supermatthewthen call it "µtorrent for µbuntu"00:23
xerxes37072right...but I set the bios to boot from cd00:23
RoeyI have a tricky situation:   I have /dev/md0 (which is /dev/sd{a,b}1) that's this puny 100 MiB partition at the start of my partition table.  I want to boot off of /, which has its own /boot;  / is on /dev/md1 (that is, /dev/sd{a,b}2).  How do I do this neatly?00:23
loshasupermatthew: very few windows developers care about producing linux versions of anything...00:23
bigdavejokereverytime I open open office it opens the document in a workspace I can't access00:23
TermanaIf you can't access the workspace, how do you know its there?00:24
loshaxerxes37072: then maybe your cd is bad...00:24
supermatthewwait if i ran µtorrent through an uppercaseafier, it would write MTORRENT?00:24
LEE20hey all00:24
xerxes37072i checked the md5sum as per the website00:24

eidostea, might but 8.04 still uses gnome, plus you want the latest updates00:47
Helsinkiiihi00:47
ks3s1gmab3ta: Also, permissions on authorized_keys should be 0600... and as I think usser was getting at, ssh-copy-id should work as long as SSH is working on your server, so there may be an issue with your setup00:47

ubottuysar: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.04:15
porter1ysar, for beginners, I recommend Gnome04:15
porter1Not to say Xfce isn't intuitive, it's just less-supported by major app writers, and doesn't really see much of a performance improvement.04:16

anarki2004i just installed ubuntu alongside windows on the same HDD. Now grub can't boot properly and I can't boot the computer without going live04:51

TomTom21for a sony vaio VGN-AR390E graphics card and camera04:51
d9500foosck: if you don't want to install any proprietary video card drivers, then intel has a history of providing open source drivers in linux (wait till karmic though to buy a motherboard w/ an intel card, there were some regressions in jaunty w/ intel drivers b/c they were reworking the architecture.) also, amd/ati has recently been improving their 2d/3d acceleration, by helping develop the open source "radeon" driver, but that one does not have 3d accel04:52
d9500eration for the r500-600 series of cards as of kernel 2.6.31. you would need to upgrade to 2.6.32, which is still an rc at this point04:52
anarki2004by live I mean using a live boot04:52
SeaPhorTomTom21, have you googled it?04:52
jahnkeanaterdoes any one have 4 channel speakers on ubuntu04:52
d9500foosck: at least, I think that's correct. phoronix.com regularly provides updates on amd's card support. might want to check that site to be sure04:52
SeaPhorTomTom21, in a terminal type lshw -C video04:53
TomTom21yea but when i tried the new update 185 for my graphics card it would crash my GPU and i had to reinstall ubuntu. also i tried installing the camera but it failed saying i needed vista04:54

ganjanautquick question: why isn't there a package for python-2.6?05:03
TomTom21SeaPhor, dont think so the drivers i tried installing were not activated and still arent05:03
dragon2777so is there an easy simple way to change the ubuntu logo on the main menu05:04
Harrison_BergeroLet me ask a question in general.....do most of your file transfers from Ubuntu to windows timeout?  Is it a hard drive, datacable, CAT5 problem on my end or is this crossplatform issue?05:04
dragon2777i never had a timeout problem05:05
eyebee_Harrison_Bergero: I know there was a driver issue when transferring large files but thought it only affected wi-fi05:05
IdleOneno issues here either05:05
TomTom21Harrison_Bergero, why not use an external HDD?05:05
eyebee_Harrison_Bergero: I know there was a driver issue when transferring large files but thought it only affected wi-fi05:05
max3anyone know what the foreign language room here on irc.ubuntu.com is?????????????05:05
IdleOnemax3: what language?05:05
KorHi, does someone know how to use -- magicrescue -- ?05:05
max3IdleOne: there was one i used to frequent where people spoke all sorts of languages05:05
Harrison_Bergerook, since the majority do not have timeout issues transferring large files from ubuntu to windows i can only assume its a hardware issue on my LAN/PC05:06
max3IdleOne: something like #foreignlanguages05:06
SeaPhorTomTom21, ok, so you "tried" to install a downloaded driver?05:06
dragon2777it also might be a setting issue05:06
IdleOnemax3: not sure, try that one or maybe check the channel list on freenode.net05:06
dragon2777or firewall05:06
macomax3: #linguistics or ##linguistics (i forget how man #) ...but its a little offtopic for this channel to ask that here05:06
Harrison_BergeroTomTom21....this is a one time deal.  After this no more file transfers.  Not worth buying an external drive.05:06
ganjanautis it notoriously buggy?05:06

Harrison_Bergerook tech question.  When i do a file transfer across the cabled LAN is the following taking place:  "which makes use of https and apt-transport-https"05:16
macoSirisian: uninstall them05:16
ShapeShifter499Th_Doctor: Its because I can.....05:16
Sirisianmaco, using the package manager interface?05:17
macoSirisian: yep05:17
ShapeShifter499Th_Doctor: and its also the challenge of trying to get windows apps/games I use to run, running again with wine05:17
Sirisianmaco, so remove the headers along with the image. That's the normal method?05:17
macoSirisian: yeah05:18
Sirisianthank you05:18
zuggycaRandom832: thanks for article about xvnc server, I think I'll buy a kvm instead :P05:18
zuggycai'll break my system otherwise05:19
Sirisianmaco, would I mark them for removal or complete removal?05:19
macoSirisian: i usually just go with removal05:19
macoSirisian: i dont think they put any config files anywhere thatd require purging... (command line term is "purge" synaptic term is "complete removal" ...means it removes configuration files too)05:19
ctmjrShapeShifter499: i do not no to much about wine if it will over write the registry entries when you install the ver of itunes you want i would get rid of them just to be sure05:20
LuisMatosTh_Doctor: ok i just did, now it says "Setting up java-common (0.28ubuntu3) ..."05:20
Th_DoctorLuisMatos: Let it run and if necessary answer yes when asked.05:22
ShapeShifter499ctmjr: I can just redo my wine dir.05:22
kevdogzuggyca: Do you really need vnc or could you just tunnel an x session?05:22
Th_DoctorShapeShifter499: Which version of Itunes were you trying to set up. I think the latest that worked was 7.7.05:22
sarthorHI, my pppoe server says, pppoe: read (asyncReadFromPPP): Session 1: Input/output error , only one login is able to be login, each other ID gave this error, While the login/passwod are correct, HELP05:22
domohey im using 9.10.. testing it out.. samba is broken? when copying files over to a share (fresh install of ubuntu server...) it fails with too many files are currently in use05:23
Th_DoctorShapeShifter499: I know 8 will let you sync with the Iphone but I don't think it will run on 9.04.05:23
domothe same copy works on 9.0405:23

kevdogboojit: FreeNX server is one alternative -- but you tell me you have found running rxvt remotely is slow?05:24

Th_DoctorShapeShifter499: The search I used had several links and they said you couldn't install beyond 7.7.05:26
Harrison_Bergerook, other than fixing a problem i cant really find where to begin.  Let me try another solution.  Other than copy/paste from Ubuntu to windows across the LAN, what are my alternatives to do a file transfer?05:26
boojitkevdog: i'm just saying that tunnelling X11 over ssh is damn slow in my experience unless you're on a LAN, that's all.05:27
Th_DoctorHarrison_Bergero: How about a USB drive.05:27
Harrison_Bergeroexternal HD was already suggested05:27
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: ssh(via sftp), ftp05:27
Harrison_Bergeroftp!  forgot about that, thanks05:27
ShapeShifter499Th_Doctor: I'll take a crack at it, brb05:27
Th_DoctorHarrison_Bergero: External Hard Drive is much more expensive than USB stick.05:27
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: Well then sftp (which is really ssh then)05:28
Th_DoctorShapeShifter499: Good luck. If you get it to work, post it in the forums.05:28
Harrison_Bergerokevdog, what windows program would i need?05:28
Harrison_Bergerogeneric ftp server?05:28
boojitHarrison_Bergero: also look at rsync over ssh tunnel -- that's how I move files around05:29
JeruvyHarrison_Bergero: can you confirm the problem in the bug?  If it only happens going from linux -> windows?  If so I'd look at the windows event viewer for any messages.05:29
ShapeShifter499Th_Doctor: I know, I did a test on itunes 8.1, look for a person with the name lance, thats me05:29
Th_DoctorHarrison_Bergero: What are you trying to transfer? Could you use Google Docs?05:29
boojitand it rocks the house off the socks ass05:29
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: Two things you need -- you need to install openssh-server on the ubuntu machine -- and for the windows client -- winscp.  You can get fancy with ssh keys and such, or just use passwords if you want05:29
ShapeShifter499Th_Doctor: look in the appdb for wine05:29
Harrison_BergeroTh_doctor....40GB altogether05:29

ravenhi - GPODDER gives me "sqlite3.OperationalError: unable to open database file" - can i repair that?05:38
Th_Doctorkevdog: Just a question, I still think his best solution would be an external hard drive. Eventually he should need a backup anyway.05:38
Harrison_BergeroWhitor...the question was about error correction...i thought a 10m run was short enough not to warrant hashing05:38
Harrison_Bergerokevdog....no 700mb or larger files05:38

Th_Doctorsurgy: Double click the color icon and choose.05:39
Whitornope cat5e is still 100m05:39
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: If its a one time thing -- wants wrong with ftp?  No encryption payload -- so really fast -- ssh is great -- however the embedded encryption is what slows it down -- with ftp no encryption so much faster!!!05:39
surgyTh_Doctor, i did that it just chanegs the hue or shade of green instead of the entire color, no matetr what color is in the box05:39

surgyJeruvy, how do i tell?05:40
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: You need a lightweight free windows ftp server?05:40
Harrison_Bergerokevdog...yes05:40
boojitSerbThug: i've never tried to do what you're doing but I would suspect it's going to be a bit difficult. It depends if you plan on running your windows install natively again after you get it running as a guest OS under VMWare.05:40
Th_Doctorsurgy: What if you make a new layer?05:40
zuggycakevdog: i need a quality session, the standard remote desktop with vnc is useless05:40
boojitSerbThug: because your windows install will require all the drivers for the virtualized hardware rather than the hardware of your actual machine.05:40
SerbThugboojit: nope, I only need windows once or twice in a month, so I won't use it natively05:41
surgyTh_Doctor, doesnt seam to do anything, same green problem05:41
kevdogzuggyca: FreeNX05:41
Jeruvysurgy: select - mode.  that should tell you whats selected05:41
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: Give me a second -- I know a great one but I forget the name of it -- but it rocks and is very good for simple stuff -- I need to find it!!!05:41
boojitSerbThug: but I don't want to say more because I've never done it. My experience with vmware is mostly running vmware workstation, both on windows hosts and linux hosts.05:41
SerbThugboojit: actually, I need it only for IE7 and IE8 (Web testing)05:41
SerbThugie4linux does not wfm05:42
surgyits indexed05:42
boojitSerbThug: yeah, i hear you. Well VMWare workstation will do what you want for that but if i were doing it i would start with a clean install rather than try to get my old install of XP working with it.05:42

Harrison_Bergerokevdog....this may sound like windowspeak...but where in ubuntu do i find my computername?06:03
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: The interface is a little bit clumsy for just the login screen b/c it uses putty as a frontend for authentication -- the rest of the program is simple to use06:03
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: Just use your LAN IP address for the server -- 192.168.x.x  Whatever it is06:03
knoppiesHarrison_Bergero, You can use netscan on your windows PC to find the IP of your ubuntu box06:04

soreauravenger: You basically have two or three options for linux: 1) Install the target OS in a VM then install the program you want in that environment 2) Find a native linux alternative program 3) If it is a windows program, you might be able to get it working in wine06:23
kevdogHarrison_Bergero: winscp acts as an ftp and sftp client -- but you only have an ssh server installed06:23
boojitman, i stay about as far away from FTP as i possibly can. kevdog, Harrison_Bergero: I know you've already gone over this, but why aren't you just using SAMBA if on a lan and trying to easily move files from a win box to a linux box?06:23
boojitnot to rehash old hash, but that seems like the obvious solution and it's so easy to set up -- integrated into gnome and all.06:24
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...other way around....im moving files from linux to windows and keep getting  a connection timeout06:24
boojitusing samba?06:24
michal__keep gettin 'Error opening directory '/usr/share/gvfs/remote-volume-monitors'..whenever i try to mount a usb drive..was fine yesterday06:24
ravengersoreau: i had used the wine but its cannot install the pc suite it seems06:25
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...no just network tab copy/paste06:25
kevdogbonjit: I'm passing this one off to you -- I can see gettting this far was hard enough -- getting samba to work would be great and all -- but that is a much more difficult thing to get up and running IMO06:25
Harrison_Bergerobrb06:26
boojitok so -- you can browse to a windows network share from ubuntu w/o installing anything or anything06:26
boojitthen just authenticate and move files to/fro in either direction.06:27
boojitbut i'm guessing you are trying that and not having luck or something?06:27

MrPiracyi am having problems with my NVIDIA drivers ... somehow i installed it and i had to add it to /etc/rc.local (chmod 666 /dev/nvidia*). isn't there a way to make it permanent without the use in this file?06:29
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...most of the time i get a "connection timeout" error06:29
TermanaMrPiracy theres your problem right there06:29
TermanaMrPiracy: You set it to 666 - nothings bound to work with those numbers :P j/k06:30
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....on the same LAN with another pc with windows copy-paste to target windows machine goes flawlessly06:30
boojitHarrison_Bergero: have you tried doing the same thing but with a windows boot, just to make sure that your network connectivity isn't the issue?06:30
boojitok06:30
MrPiracyTermana: it acctually works, but some random times i will have to reboot because this file wasn't read/processed06:30
michal__'volume(ext4) listed in /etc/fstab is refusing to mount' ???06:30
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...the only thing i havent tried is swapping the CAT5 cable on the ubuntu machine06:31
boojitwell what i would do is set up a ping going to the windows box, then start trying to repro the issue. See if you start getting RTOs when the connection times out06:31
boojitif you do, the problem is probably network related.06:31
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...ok, ping from terminal?06:31
boojityeah so bring up term, ping the ip of the windows box. Then open up the windows network share, start the file copy, try to repro the issue, and then pay attention to what the ping window is doing during all of this.06:32

oliver3so guys... when enabling the fglrx driver from the GUI... it just stalls at 0%...06:58
michal__exit06:59
Snicksiejacomeintjes, what's the exact problem? what do you wanna do with the cli? ;)06:59
jacomeintjesFor a start I just want to test the following: Encode and Stream from a WinPC to the Ubuntu Server and then play the stream from here06:59
jitenderHarrison_Bergero,06:59
jitenderu pls guide me06:59
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...NOOOOO...it just crashed06:59
jacomeintjesI've done this for a long time now between Win PC's using the GUI07:00
boojitHarrison_Bergero: hm.07:00
boojitHarrison_Bergero: connection timed out?07:00
jacomeintjesBut going the CLI now is my challenge07:00
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....wait, it told it to skip over and its continuing...HA07:00
psychuilAnyone? How can i switch between typing languages?07:00
GreenDelta2hey, how can i use the built in vpn client of ubuntu? when i click on networkconnections and then on vpn i see the client but i cant do anything. (like adding profiles and so on)07:00
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....could this be a harddrive problem?07:00
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...dropped down to 6.MB/s07:01
SnicksieGreenDelta2, are you 'auted' on the network-screen? ;)07:01
boojitHarrison_Bergero: on your windows box? well if that was the case it would happen when you tried to copy win->win07:01
GreenDelta2Snicksie: no? how do i do?07:02
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...win to win with same CAT5 cable that im using now i copied 40GB without incident...no errors07:02
boojitHarrison_Bergero: so as long as you are completely sure that network copying win->win is solid then doesn't seem like the problem shoudl be the HDD on your windows box.07:02
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....timed out again07:02
boojithm07:02
Harrison_Bergerotold it to skip over07:03
psychuilANYONE?07:03
SnicksieGreenDelta2, hm, my fault. that was an old version :$ but have you installed all things needed for vpn? ;)07:03
Harrison_Bergeroand again...another time out07:03
boojitHarrison_Bergero: yeah that doesn't feel right.07:03
GreenDelta2Snicksie: these are?07:03
Harrison_Bergerothere must be something wrong here on ubuntu end....hard drive-data cable-controller...what do zou thing?07:04
luckymuraliHi to all07:04
luckymuraliI am using Ubuntu server 9.04\07:04
luckymuralii m having some problem07:04
Harrison_Bergeroboojit..the odd thing about it all is i can copy from windows to ubuntu but not the other way around07:04
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...before i go swapping out hardware id like to address that07:05
boojitHarrison_Bergero: yeah that's why it feels network related07:05
boojitHarrison_Bergero: as soon as the network load goes up, you have problems. When the load is down everything looks ok.07:05
luckymuralieven im not doing any process 2 of my processeor is showing 100% usage07:05
boojitIt could be something else, as you say, but if feels network-ey to me.07:05
luckymuraliwhy it is hapenning07:05
luckymurali??07:05
SnicksieGreenDelta2, network-manager-pptp network-manager-vpnc network-manager-openvpn ; depends which kind of vpn-server it is ;)07:05
luckymuraliplease tell me07:05
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...i use bittorrent, let run for days without problems.  Dont have this issue07:06
DaZluckymurali: botnet07:06
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...timed out again....told it to skip over07:06
luckymuraliDaZ: what is that???07:06
boojitHarrison_Bergero: yeah but that's still an order of magnitude less network traffic than copying over the lan, because you're limited by your broadband connection07:06
kenyon!monitoring > luckymurali07:07
ubottuluckymurali, please see my private message07:07
boojitHarrison_Bergero: ok i would try a couple of things. I would probably take that other windows box, the one that you copy successfully with, and boot that on an ubuntu live CD, see if you can copy reliably there.07:07
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...well yeah...lots of smaller connections as opposed to one connection with more load07:07
boojitHarrison_Bergero: yeah and an order of magnitude less load, don't forget.07:08
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....that will have to wait....the suns already up!07:08
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...i need a trained monkey to keep skipping over each time a timeout occurs07:09
boojityeah well keep testing it out, try copying to/fro USB drives to isolate your drive hypothesis.07:09
minderaserI'm rather stuck trying to restore my home directory if anyone is able to help. (explanation follows)07:10
boojitkeep swapping out network stuff to see if you can isolate it. I mean, it could be your switch. Could be the network adapter in the ubuntu box. I really doubt it is the fault of the windows networking layer in Ubuntu -- i use that all the time, no issues.07:10
minderaserI was changing partitions around, and thought I could could just backup my /home/me directory to a USB and restore from there. I made a tarball of it, changed partitions around, unpacked the tarball, used find with touch to make all the dates current, and tried to cp them all to /home/me and voi-la! But, no matter what, some files/directories refuse to be overwritten (notably .profile and .mozilla) even as root. Hmmm...07:10

Harrison_Bergeroboojit...i just did a dumbshit....how do i undelete a folder...its not in the wastebasket?07:12
luckymuralican you please tell me which process is taking more of my cpu??07:12
Snicksieminderaser, perhaps you'd better overwrite it in livecd-modus? perhaps it's because that directories and files are used? dunno ;)07:13
boojituh. So you deleted a folder on the windows network drive by accident? how did you delete it? pressing delete?07:13
boojityeah, i don't think deleted network folders go to the recycler. I'm not really sure.07:13
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...i deleted in ubuntu...i wanted to delete the incomplete copied folder off windows and did it here by mistake07:14
Harrison_Bergeroits not in the wastebasket!07:14
Harrison_Bergerogrr07:14
minderaserSnicksie: That's a good thought, similar to one I had, so I tried it in cp them over in recovery mode at a root prompt and no dice.07:14
Harrison_BergeroSIGH07:14
boojitok so you were on the ubuntu side and deleted a windows folder? or an ubuntu folder?07:14
Snicksieminderaser, so that didn't work? ;)07:14
minderaserSnicksie: I'm assuming that more-or-less rules out the "in use" idea, right?07:15
Harrison_Bergeroon unbuntu and deleted an ubuntu folder07:15
jedcluckymurali, you cn type top into a terminal and it will show you which processes are using the most cpu07:15
minderaserSnicksie: nope, no luck that way either07:15
Snicksieboojit, sometimes you can find a .Trash-1000 folder, perhaps it's there? ;)07:15
OzTrOuThi all :)07:15
boojitHarrison_Bergero: by pressing "delete" or "shift-delete"?07:15
Harrison_Bergeroboojit....rightmouse and selecting delete in the menu07:16

boojitwait there is no delete on the context menu.07:17
psychuilWhy can't i install monodev?07:17
boojitif you hit the delete key it would be in your trash. If you hit shift-delete then it is gone.07:17
Harrison_Bergeroboojit..right.  I must have highlighted the folder and then hit the "delete" key on the keyboard07:18
Harrison_Bergeroboojit...definately did not hit shift delete07:18
psychuilIt tells me "cannot find package 'monodevelop'"07:18
boojitHarrison_Bergero: if you just hit delete, then it should be in trash07:18

ActionParsnipminderaser: try: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/$USER07:26
Majepsychuil: system->administration->software sources will allow you to choose what repos you use07:26
zortecSearching for that chipset doesn't even come up on NVIDIA's website07:26
n-namedi have the autossh command in both rc.local and gdm/Init/Default07:27
cdoublejjwhy when i click on the network icon in xubuntu the options are greyed out?07:27
psychuilMaje, i'm a complete n00b, can you please elaborate abit more?07:27
Snicksiecdoublejj, isn't there an option to 'auth'? ;)07:27
induszortec: where is this chipset used?07:28
zortecOk, I found a networking guide but I haven't seen a user manual or pdf on that chipset07:28
minderaserActionParsnip: not quite sure I follow you there, but I wasn't very detailed in my explanation either.07:28
zortecindus: Not sure I understand the question07:28
induszortec: is this on a motherboard?07:28
n-nameddoes anyone have any tips to help me debug this?07:28
ActionParsnipminderaser: you should be the owner of every file in your home directory07:28
n-namedi have no idea where to start. apparently nobody online has gotten this working either (i searched the forums)07:28
zorteczortec: ah. yes, part of the MSI mainboard07:28
minderaserActionParsnip: I have a tarball of my previous /home/me, unpack it, chown it, even touch all the files to make the date current, and STILL some files won't get overwritten07:29
ActionParsnipminderaser: files in backups are usually automatically made the owner of root so you will most likely need to take the power back07:29

cdoublejjthats all i got07:29
ActionParsnipminderaser: then you'll need to check the    ls -al   of the file, see whats going on07:29
zortecindus: I have d/l the motherboard manual, but it does not have much about the chipset so that is why I have been at nvidia's site07:29
ActionParsnipcdoublejj: dont do that, it scrolls the channel07:30
minderaserActionParsnip: well, that's the problem right there (I think we're on the same page now)07:30
cdoublejjso how do i authorize this stuff?07:30
minderaserActionParsnip: for the most part, files have correct ownership and current timestamp, but SOME just refuse to be updated07:30
cdoublejjeven sounds is greyed out07:30
zaouln-named: maybe make the script in /etc/init.d/ and see if services-admin will read it?07:30
zaoulkinda weird rc.local does not work07:30
Albn99:(07:31
n-namedzaoul: i put it in /etc/init.d/rc.local07:31
minderaserActionParsnip: I've even tried to do it from a root shell in recovery mode and they STILL won't get current timestamps07:31
n-namedit is really odd07:31
zaouln-named: what is the syntax you have in it?07:31
zortecindus: This is all the information I have07:31
zortecindus: http://pastebin.com/d35f827507:31
zortecI am trying to locate a pdf document to find out more about that chipset07:32
ActionParsnipminderaser: timestamp isnt too critical, its the ownerships and the write access on the files07:32
ActionParsnipminderaser: could try: sudo chmod -R o+w /home/$USER07:32
induszortec: hmm so what problem do u have wit h it07:33
induszortec: i think google is showing lots of stuff on it07:33
induszortec: none of those good?07:33
zortecindus: the problem I have is what I find out the supported resolutions of that chipset since I am looking at upgrading the monitor07:33
n-namedzaoul   autossh -i /home/n/.ssh/id_rsa -f -N -L localhost:24800:other-host:24800 other-host &07:33
zortecindus: so I need to find out what monitors I can buy with that chipset07:34
zaouln-named: ..weird07:34
zaoulIm not exactly sure what controls what scripts start up in ubuntu.. apartently there is no chkconfig07:35
n-namedi've tried throwing it in a few locations for giggles07:35
minderaserActionParsnip: I follow what you're saying. 2 reasons I mention the timestamps: 1) I was researching this a bit and read that some files will not allow being overwritten with an older version, so I touch -ed them all to make them all more current. 2) It shows that the files in /home/me have NOT been overwritten07:35
n-namedi.e.: /etc/rc.local /etc/init.d/rc.local07:35
ActionParsnipminderaser: are they writable?07:35
minderaserActionParsnip: good thought, let me look into that07:36
ActionParsnipminderaser: is there some form of archive bit on them (or can exist on files)07:36
zortecindus: I can't find the technical specs on that chipset07:36
n-namedis there a way i can debug it? see the error or anything?07:36
induszortec: hmm do you think some monitors wont work with it?07:36
zortecindus: it's possible if I get one with a super high res07:36
zaouln-named: /var/log/messages maybe07:36
zortecindus: so would rather not take my chances07:36
induszortec: unlikely07:37
induszortec: its old chipset right?07:37
n-namedzaoul: there is no var/log/messages.. :)07:37
minderaserActionParsnip: writing perms look ok07:37
zortecindus: hmm. but still, nvidia should provide info on the chipset, no?07:37
ActionParsnipminderaser: you could covery all bases with: sudo chmod -R 750 /home/$USER07:37
induszortec: yeah07:37
steven_When I install Xubuntu on VirtualBox what version of Linux do I install it as? Xubuntu is not lasted as an option.  Do I choose other Linux or Ubuntu 64-bit?07:37
minderaserActionParsnip: I don't know what you're talking about with archive bits though07:37
zaouln-named: eww.. check you have a syslog07:37
zortecsteven_: You can be safe just using 2.4 linux kernel07:37
zaouln-named: that should be a default service in the distro07:38
ActionParsnipminderaser: are the files readable? If they are you could copy one to make a "new" version and delete the old07:38
steven_Why not 2.6?07:38
n-namedi have system.log07:38
n-namednot messages07:38
zortecsteven_: 2.6... sorry the highest one that is supported in VBox07:38
n-namedoh, wait n/m07:38

n-namedwrong box..07:38
minderaserActionParsnip: yes, readable, writable (at least to owner)07:39
zortecindus: sure I can do trial and error, but I know it supports vga and dvi... what I want to know is the max res supported by nvidia geforce 7050/nforce 610i chipset07:39
n-namedzortec: i see when it successfuly starts, when i run it myself07:39
induszortec: wait07:39
ActionParsnipminderaser: good enough, try copying a known bad file and then try to edit the new file07:39
n-namedalthough there is no mention of any error when i don't run it07:39
n-namedwhen it should be run but isn't07:40
minderaserActionParsnip: I fail to see how doing a chown will help anything, because it will only affect the files that were generated on the install, not the backup ones I want to have there07:40
induszortec: geforce 7050 basically07:40
zortecn-named: I think another user was helping you07:40
zortecn-named: was not paying attention to your issue07:40
n-namedi mean zaoul, my mistake07:40
ActionParsnipminderaser: if they ar eare in /home/$USER they will be affected07:40

n-namedbut then the process doesn't exist anymore after i log in07:41

n-namedso i think it starts or attempts to, but then gets killed07:43
zortecindus: what do you mean there isn't any? that is odd...07:43

securityadmin8.04 installs with a ext3 file system but i have another version of linux and some files i need on it but i used a ext4 file system on the one09:01
vtec_What is a linux shell? Basically a command?09:02
Blizzerandvtec_ : Nothing much ,09:02
indusvtec_: synaptic is a more advanced vresion with more control over packages etc09:02
zirodayvtec_: Synaptic lists every application (including libraries and *-dev packages) whilst Add/Remove only lists applications. If you're not sure use Add/Remove09:02
securityadminsynaptic is a more advance version of add/ remove09:02
Blizzerand!synaptic09:02
ubottusynaptic is Ubuntu's Graphical Package Manager. For a good howto see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto09:02
overmachtsecurityadmin: ext4 must be you have choose it. not auto.09:02
LinxAnybody running linux4one on an acer aspire one? Could do with a little tech.09:02
vtec_Ahhh I see09:02
vtec_Thankyou all very much09:02
indusvtec_: add/remove sucks anyway09:02
zirodayvtec_: as for the linux shell, its similar to the windows or mac shell, its a command line :)09:02
icerootLinx: what is linux4one?09:02
BlizzerandLinx : Use #linux09:02
vtec_I understand09:02
indusvtec_: synaptic is great really, so many options to mess with, you can spend hours just reading about packages :)09:03
securityadmini know but i wana access it and it says that it can't mount it09:03
LinxIt's a hardware-ready version for the netbook.09:03
icerootLinx: but no ubuntu?09:03
LinxIt's a version of ubuntu09:03
vtec_Indus: well said haha, thanks mate09:03
iceroot!who | Linx09:03
ubottuLinx: 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 :)09:03
zirodayLinx: unfortunately we don't support ubuntu derivatives here, sorry.09:04

Plasma2000Hello Everybody. I'm an absolute beginner with Linux and wanted to create a bootable USB stick with the current CD image of ubuntu on it from Windows. Here (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStick) they say that the usb creator is in the root of the CD, but it isn't (at least not in the available i386 32bit isos). Am I searching for that tool in the wrong place?09:04
zirodayPlasma2000: did you download the latest version of ubuntu?09:05
securityadminreally all you have to do is copy the cd files to the usb stick09:05
Bruchey wsup all09:05
securityadminthe auto run will take over09:05
indusPlasma2000: to create it from windows you use a software called unetbootin09:05
indussecurityadmin: that is totally wrong09:05
securityadminthat is how i did it in windows09:06
Plasma2000@ziroday: yes, not only that one, but also the currently available beta and the older 8.x available for download - all of them not containing the usb creator tool.09:06
securityadminnot bootable of course09:06

vtec_Appler, what?09:07
zirodayPlasma2000: try running wubi.exe, does it give you the option to use the usb creator?09:07
securityadminhow do i check the log09:07
Applervtec_ : Never mind09:08
indusziroday: hmm i dont think thats how you install it09:08
securityadminwhen it tells me that it can't mount where is that stored09:08
Plasma2000@indus + ubottu: thanks for the links and tools names: will have a looka lso to them - i just was surprised by the help stating that the usb creator should be on the cd, but at least I can't see it in the root (also the search doesn't find it)09:08
shell_hi09:09
indusPlasma2000: so suppose the usb creator is in the root? (whatever that means) , how exactly do u use it to burn to usb?09:09

Plasma2000@ziroday: thanks! - will try it immediately :)09:20
indusziroday: well, karmic isnt out yet, and what do you mean i believe?09:20
zirodayPerryArmstrong: okay, well do you have a commercial internet connection with a static IP and port forwarding enabled, or is the server directly connected to the internet and not through a router?09:20
Plasma2000@indus: ok - will for sure help those coming from Windows wanting to have a look at ubuntu from usb09:20

PerryArmstrongziroday; what difference does this make?09:21
securityadminyour ip changes if you don't09:22

pixie_piewhat i'm really wanting to know is if ubuntu supports the _POSIX_SAVED_IDS feature09:22
PerryArmstrongziroday; what does commercial internet connection mean?09:22
securityadminthen following links and typing in adresses don't stay constint09:22
securityadminstatic IP high up loads09:22
zirodayPerryArmstrong: well its usually against consumer internet plans terms and conditions to host a webserver. Secondly dynamic IP's make it very difficult to host content, as your IP address is always moving09:22

indusbruc good for you :)09:26
Bruceverytime i install windows on the drive something happens...09:26
Brucsame drive i mean09:26
zirodayPerryArmstrong: the issue is with a dynamic IP address your IP address is constantly changing, therefore your DNS records will constantly be wrong and people won't be able to connect to your server09:27
Brucanyways hard driver are cheap this days..09:27
PerryArmstrongziroday, securityadmin; and i like to do this on an ubuntuserver...people usually go for a fedora server saying that it has more security...but i am used to ubuntu09:27
PerryArmstrongziroday; then how can i get a static IP??09:27
zirodayPerryArmstrong: you usually get a static IP through a commercial internet connection09:28
robinhello09:28
PerryArmstrongziroday; you mean a service provider right??09:28

zirodayPerryArmstrong: what's what?09:31
PerryArmstrongziroday; shared hosting or VPN??09:31
civcivHow am I supposed to enter the address of the network file to wine? any idea?09:32
FiReSTaRTrichardcavell: this channel will stop supporting jaunty and will switch to supporting karmic.. there might be a legacy support channel but i don't know about it because i keep updating to fresher versions (mostly to get better hardware support)09:32
zirodayPerryArmstrong: shared hosting is where you pay monthly for some space on a web server and host your content. A Virtual Private Server (VPS) is a virtual server which acts as if you completely control it but the actual machine is split into different virtual machines. Both of these options have assorted monthly costs09:33
zirodayFiReSTaRT: this channel supports all versions of Ubuntu that are not at their end of life (see !eol)09:33
richardcavellFiReSTaRT: I think this channel will still support Jaunty09:33
zirodayrichardcavell: so yes, we will still support jaunty :)09:33
FiReSTaRTziroday: thanks for the correction richardcavell, sorry about the misunderstanding09:33
richardcavellI'm not doubting that Jaunty will still be supported... I'm asking whether Jaunty will be no longer recommended09:34
zirodayrichardcavell: recommended for what?09:34
=== MadMax is now known as MaxSid
FiReSTaRTziroday: it's just that this channel is pretty tight on excluding the upcoming releases so i figured it would also go the other way lol09:34
richardcavellI maintain some instructions for installing Jaunty on Intel-based Macs.  I'm wondering whether my instructions should be deprecated once Karmic is released09:34
PerryArmstrongziroday; okk but we already have hosted our department site in a hosting service but our department head has asked us to this as an assignment so that we can learn how these things work09:35
PerryArmstrongziroday; it was actually my request and he accepted it...09:35
zirodayPerryArmstrong: right, and most web servers are not hosted on home connections, anyway this has long gone past being ubuntu support so feel free to join me in #ubuntu-offtopic and continue discussing your options09:36
FiReSTaRTrichardcavell: in any case, keep the jaunty instructions.. some people just don't have the nerve to upgrade.. my uncle's a perfect example.. i put jaunty on his desktop machine and had i not extended my european trip, i would have had him keep jaunty for about a year09:36
zirodayrichardcavell: I would have a seperate karmic section if the instructions have changed, but if not sure I would ask the wiki team09:36

EvaLuaTei will appearantly have to reinstall windows, as i need it to run some programs that i need at school. If i install it on the same drive with ubuntu (because it appearantly won't install on a external hdd) it will most probably overwrite the mbr. So, my question, is there any possibility, after the installation of windows, to modify the mbr, so that I can dual boot windows and ubuntu, without rein09:38

zetheroo1indus: on laptop or desktop?09:41

th1_zetheroo1, I have it on a desktop and on a netbook (Eee 1000HE)09:41

induszetheroo1: all good09:43
induszetheroo1: no , its a problem specific to my mobo09:43
zetheroo1indus: oh ok09:43
th1_zetheroo1, not for me I was just saying it because indus said so09:43
zetheroo1indus: any reasons that one should upgrade ? any enhancements to speak of?09:44
zetheroo1th1_: ^^09:44
induszetheroo1: ya its all fine now, sound with pulseaudio also nice according to people09:44
th1_newer firefox, nicer default theme, etc.. :)09:44
th1_there are lots of smallish things09:44
FiReSTaRTEvaLuaTe: i was doing one dual-boot configuration... grub legacy would make windoze unbootable.. doing fixmbr/fixboot would make ubuntu unbootable... so what i did was boot ubuntu, sudo apt-get install grub-pc and voila.. but hang on i'll dig up the instructions that i used09:44
induszetheroo1: its super fast boot, ultra fast shutdown , but otherwise has ext4 file system, disk utility for HDD status, newer packges, empathy as default IM which sucks but anyways09:45
th1_zetheroo1, you don't get ext4 features if you upgrade from jaunty though09:45
th1_unless you re-format your disks09:45
induszetheroo1: a new choco window border , theme tweaks09:45
FiReSTaRTEvaLuaTe: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-install-grub-2-on-ubuntu-9.04 but i do have one warning for you so wait for the next message09:45
induszetheroo1: nothing spectacular, that will probably come in 10.0409:46
zetheroo1th1_ , indus: I am already using ext409:46
th1_ok09:46
th1_well also what indus said: faster boot09:46
th1_but I don't boot that often that it bothers me09:46
th1_but the splash screen is nicer :)09:46
zetheroo1th1_ , indus: yeah I could always do with a faster boot - ha09:46
zetheroo1th1_ , indus: so is empathy worse than pidgin?09:47
induszetheroo1: bah its a useless ffeature really, 1 min  saved in a day is nothing really09:47
FiReSTaRTEvaLuaTe: both systems were on hd1 (bios settings), but the upgrade-from-grub-legacy script installs grub to hd0 by default.. so i needed to dig it up (it's in /usr/sbin) and edit the hd0 to hd1 (this may be an unnecessary step, but check your menu.lst file to make sure)09:47
th1_dunno I only use pidgin :)09:47
induszetheroo1: its personal choice but i hate it09:47
induszetheroo1: its ugly09:47
zetheroo1th1_ , indus: I recall trying out empathy a while back and went straight back to pidgin09:47
induszetheroo1: try it, though, voice/video over msn is promised in future09:47
zetheroo1th1_ , indus: any idea why the switch?09:48
induszetheroo1: iam going back to pidgin too in a day or so09:48
EvaLuaTeFiReSTaRT: ok, thank you very much :)09:48
th1_zetheroo1, pidgin is still supported fine09:48
FiReSTaRTEvaLuaTe: if your linux is already under hd0,0 or hd0,1 or hd0,whatever, you don't need to edit the script.. if it's under hd1,whatever or hd2,whatever (who knows what sort of a hardware configuration you have), you will need to edit to suit09:48
induszetheroo1: just a canonical decision09:48
zirodayindus: voice and video chat for MSN works in empathy, you just need to use the empathy PPA09:48
zirodayindus: and it was *not* a canonical decision09:48
indusziroday: it doesnt, i have tried09:48

zetheroo1ziroday: oh that is a nice feature09:48

th1_zetheroo1, probably because of the name - ubuntu admins are suckers for "cozy" names ;) and pidgin = flying rat so ....09:49

th1_StrangeCharm, grub1 or grub2?09:59
FiReSTaRTEvaLuaTe: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto <-- general grub how to, http://www.supergrubdisk.org/wiki/AutoSuperGrubDisk <-- to get the autosupergrubdisk (for some reason it worked for me while the unetwhatever disk didn't work)09:59

th1_StrangeCharm, check /boot/grub/device.map10:00
harri_th1_, I don't wan 't to tunnel anything..  I want to run a remote app on a remote computer on its local display10:00
induszetheroo1: i forgot to say, it uses grub2 now which is more difficult10:00
StrangeCharmth1_, i'm looking at device.map, but i'm not sure what the correct changes are. i don't know what this file is meant to do.10:01
th1_harri_, ok I see, is the user you're logged in as on ssh also logged into the local X session ?10:01

StrangeCharmth1_, i know which disk /boot is on, but i don't know which disk grub is reading from10:03
jitenderwhen i run rsync its show failed in terminal10:03

th1_StrangeCharm, try booting from a GRUB2 bootable USB key and examine what is what10:04
hnokoshari: I know.. just can't figure out how to get apt-get to download without messing with system package status.10:05
StrangeCharmth1_, a grub2 bootable usb key? how would i determine what's going on?10:05
th1_the grub2 command line is like a shell10:06
kosharihno how does the -d switch mess with the package list?10:06
th1_you can ls files and stuff10:06
hnokoshari: That checks if the pacage is already installed and skips download..10:06
hnokoshari: Plust that it needs to run as root..10:07
StrangeCharmth1_, i can already get the grub rescue environment on this box. surely i can get from there to wherever i need to be?10:07
kosharihno if its already there it will be in the apt cache, so you should be able to copy it from there10:07
th1_StrangeCharm, if you can then you are fine.. then you can ls (hd0) etc10:07

MixMixcristi_: how is it broken?11:56
darkpeterhello !11:56
erUSULcristi_: depends on how broken he flashstick is ... can you make a image of it using dd ?11:56
darkpeterhow r u there ?11:56

Halitechdarkpeter, normally its /etc/X11/xrg.conf but its not used much anymore as everything is automatically configured11:57
DaZbadly automagically configured11:58

Halitechdarkpeter, /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /etc/x11/xorg.conf are not the same, which did you look for?11:59
darkpeteri just want to have 1280x1024 and i just have 1024x768 :(11:59
baderahmedhello11:59
FuzzYspo0Nlol, what11:59
cristi_i do have a dd image of the drive. it used to be fat32 though it seems that the partition table is completely gone.11:59
Halitechdarkpeter, what video card?12:00
darkpeterintel graphics 212:00
darkpeterdirect rendering is Ok12:00
Halitechcristi_, what does sudo fdisk -l show? use pastebin to show us12:00
erUSULcristi_: you can use photorec from testdisk package to recover the files within (it can work on the image to be extra safe)12:00
erUSULcristi_: testdisk itself can be used to restore the partition table on the device12:01
erUSULcristi_: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk12:02

darkpeterhalitech : any idea ?12:03
zer0xdarkpeter: you can force a resolution by adding the modeline to xorg.conf..12:03
darkpeterzer0x : where is the xorg.conf in 9.10 ?12:04
zer0xdarkpeter: you'll need to create an xorg.conf by switching to a virtual console, sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop, sudo X -configure12:04
Halitechdarkpeter, not sure, I know in 9.04 there were some issues but if there is no xorg.conf I'm not sure where to point you12:04

baderahmedis there a tutorial to learn php senior?12:05

MixMixjet_: lspci -v12:05
Halitechcristi_, it should if its seeing the drive12:05
icerootbaderahmed: #php, google, php.net12:05
zer0xdarkpeter: then you can use gtf to generate a modeline, and insert it into xorg.conf12:05
cristi_Halitech: it reads "sdb: unknown partition table" when detecting the device12:05
Halitechcristi_, I've seen that before, could just mean its using raw mode and doesn't have an actual partition12:06

ltcabralhey im trying to build an rpm in ubuntu but the following line is giving me problems: install -dv rpm/{BUILD,RPMS/noarch,SOURCES,SPECS,SRPMS}   it creates a dir '{BUILD,RPMS' and a file 'SOURCES' instead... how can i fix that?12:33

psypher12I just want to validate if the server is online and responding well as I am hosting from home12:33
psypher12I have my web app I am gonna upload soon12:34

darkpeteranyone know how to force a screen resolution in 9.10 ?? i've create a xorg.conf but the system does not take this one12:34
psypher12Thanks for checking anyways!12:34
Picidarkpeter: 9.10 is not supported in this channel until it is released, please continue to use #ubuntu+1 until that time.12:34

icerootltspadmin: useradd username12:37
vgePrentice: which you already knew :/12:37
tj83__Totenkopf, what is the exact vmware product you use? vmware-server? your doing in a client/server fashion? My goal is to run multiple CLI servers for the purpose of learning.12:37

Totenkopftj83__: We are using vmware-server, yes... the 2.0.x series has a web interface included, from which you can then launch a console if need be12:38
HalitechPrentice, I had some issues the other day that were similiar to what you are describing, from what I gathered hald was acting up but restarting just hald didn nothing, rebooted and everything was fine again12:38
icerootlulika: you have to go through all releases12:38
bob1dhiaeldeen just use synaptic12:38
lulikaiceroot: oh, okay12:38
icerootlulika: or wait until 10.04 which is also an LTS and can be upgraded directly12:38
ltspadminyes but when i click..it should ask a password ..but i didnt get it..12:38
bob1dhiaeldeen or auto codec search12:38
iceroot!who | ltspadmin12:38

icerootindus:  not for all12:39
dhiaeldeeni can't find it.12:39
tj83__Totenkopf, ah, i see, I was a bit confused, with normal desktop virtualization the environment is delivered there on the host machine. I was trying to make sense of how it was to be delivered , and vmware server seemed like the only possible solution. If someone were to just use basic virtual box or someting it wouldnt work as there was not xserver right?12:39

HalitechDexterLB, what version of Ubuntu?12:42
Dr_Willisindus:  i dont rember. totem tryies to play it.. asks to dowload somthing.. it does. then i get audio but not video,, and then i rember to go install vlc or mplayer and then dump totem - thats  How it normally plays out when i do new installs.12:42
DexterLBJaunty12:42
