Slartroods: there's an old rule that says 2xRAM .. but these days I would say 1xRAM should be enough00:20
LjLcrypto_: having jaunty-proposed enabled is a very very very bad idea.00:20
Slartroods: if you've got 2GB or more or ram00:20
LjLcrypto_: also, your medibuntu line says "feisty" rather than "jaunty" as it should00:21
mneptokroods: laptop or desktop?00:21
crypto_so what should i do about it00:21
LjLcrypto_: remove jaunty-proposed, fix medibuntu, save, and then "sudo apt-get update". then try again installing bind900:21

xpololzcan anyone help me installing drivers for my video card? pretty please.. :>01:07
bradlandsnuffy47: i've used Webmin for basic stuff. To be honest, if you can use Webmin, you can do it by editing the files directly01:07
orville1LjL: four-line answer is /usr/bin:/usr/bin/ruby1.8:/usr/bin/erb1.8:/usr/bin/testrb1.801:08
ebbiarp: look at /etc/sshd/sshd_config on the ubuntu machine see if RSAAuthentication yes and PubkeyAuthentication yes is there01:08
jimcooncatbradland: I'm going to bed, but putty has a sister program pageant that holds the key, if that's what you're looking for. Otherwise, putty will use keys, but it will keep asking for a passphrase on each new connection.01:08
LjLorville1: uhm, so it thinks there *is* a /usr/bin/ruby1.8 file... try "sudo apt-get --reinstall install ruby1.8"01:08
snuffy47been having problems getting raid to stay mounted editing cofigs01:08
bradlandthanks jimcooncat, that'll help a lot01:08
jimcooncatbradland: nite01:08
bradlandiarp: the gist of it is this. the id_rsa and id_rsa.pub keys are two pieces of a puzzle. together, they allow ssh to encode and decode messages.01:09
iarpebb: both are Yes01:09
snuffy47and got confused doing the samba config things went crazy but I guess I will give it another go01:09
bradlandthe id_rsa file resides on your computer, and the id_rsa.pub file gets copied to the contents of authorized_keys on the remote computer01:09
bradlandiarp: it sounds like you have them backwards01:09
iarpbradland: ok so which key sits on which machine? Like does the remote machine recieve the private and my main windows machine uses the public?01:09
Dorian2hey gang.. anyone know how to figure out what version of nvidia drivers i have from CLI..01:09

Dorian2i have an xbmuntu install.. and i need to fine a way to get 190.42 installed01:10
im26Sup01:10
bradlandiarp: no, you've got it backwards. the private key (id_rsa) always stays on your computer. only id_rsa.pub gets uploaded to the server01:10
bradlandthe *contents* of id_rsa.pub get copied to a special file on the server01:10
bradland~/.ssh/authorized_keys01:11

LjLviolet523: well, you can do tha in two different ways01:15
xTheGoat121xLjL, whoops, LoL, I had mentioned that in my first posting01:15
usserviolet523, naturally through bootloader01:15
lstarnesviolet523: at the grub menu, there should be an option to temporarily edit the boot entries01:15
usserviolet523, when ubuntu boots press esc then pick your kernel press 'e' edit the options you need and press 'b'01:15
LjLviolet523: initially, you should just test them out in a temporary fashion: before linux starts booting, hit Esc to reach the GRUB menu, hit "e" on your kernel, go to the line starting with "kernel", hit "e" again, add the opions you want, and hit "b"01:16
eisenhoweris there a reason that with every kernel update it concatenates a line to my grub?01:16
ebbvfen_: installing from source usualy involves tar -xvzf appname.tar.gz then cd in to directory and type './configure' then 'make' then if you want 'make install'01:16
eisenhoweris this a safety future?01:16
arrrgghhey I'm trying to make a new custom app launcher.. the command I'm trying to run is one of those ./Command here  scripts01:16

jasmuzZzZ, Hahaha.. go learn some BASH if you are feeling bored :P01:30
x4556ebb: see the problem is, that its just a program i compiled from source, so its just in a folder.01:30
x4556ebb: its xboxdrv a user space xbox 360 controller driver, which used to work..01:30
ZzZjasmuz, well, thats the point i guess, trying to explore the possibilities01:30
xpololzctmjr: ouh, one more question, do i actually need the x-server? and what's the "default run level" on my system? as i said im pretty new to ubuntu :/01:31
volantehi, i'm booting ubuntu-9.10-rc-desktop-amd64.iso and selecting "install ubuntu" but its just booting me into a gnome desktop, looks like a live image01:31
volantehow do i actually run the installer?01:31
jasmuzZzZ, At least i used to remote connect to the X of another machine in my network just for fun.01:31
Viggleik01:32
ViggleikHi. I have problems with the network speed in vmware is slow. Someone who knows what is the cause?01:32
ZzZjasmuz, i was trying to figure that one out with xp machine and this one, but no luck01:32
xrandrvolante: i had that happen the first time i did it. Reboot, make sure the install option is selected, (use spacebar) and then hit enter01:32
xmatthewxthanks xrandr. looks like i have some reading to do. seems like many people have suspend issues related to acpi on their thinkpads. haven't found anyone with trouble using / charging a battery, but i'll dig deeper.01:32

lstarnesMasterCD0: did you restart firefox?01:34
ZzZany cool setups for desktop? anyone?01:34
bradlanddandaman: did all the lines match the phrase 'netbeans'?01:34
xrandrMasterCD0: get libflashplayer from adobe's site. copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins  and /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/01:34
bradlandyou might just have a lot of processes01:34
MasterCD0yep several times ive even tried using the opera browser and no luck01:34

* xrandr wonders if he can run ubuntu off of a flash drive....01:35
=== PC|Away is now known as PacketCollision
ZzZxrandr, for sure u can, there are plenty tutorials out there01:35
jasmuzxrandr, can bet he can run a ubuntu from a flash drive!01:36
* Scunizi has that currently and uses it to fix win machine01:36
volanteits got "try ubuntu without any change to your computer" and "install ubuntu".... i choose "install ubuntu" and it boots into the live image01:36
bradlanddandaman: well, ideally you shouldn't be killing a lot of processes01:36
bradlanddandaman: they should exit normally when you close them01:36
ebbx4556: did you try 'ldd xboxdrv' ?01:36
dandamanwell i had some crazy error before i restarted01:36
jasmuzxrandr, i recommend you check uNetbootin01:36
xrandrvolante: redownload and reburn the image01:36
volanteis this jsut a really bad bug? perhaps i need to try installing 9.04 instead01:36

dandamansaying the same thing01:36
dandamanand i had to restart01:36

dandamani see01:37
ZzZlater guys01:38
x4556ebb: http://pastebin.com/m68558b2701:38
bradlanddandaman: also, try having a look at system monitor under system, administration. it will show you processes with status, and has a nice GUI interface that you can use to kill processes without refining your script-fu01:38

dandamancool, thansk01:39
ebbx4556: try 'find /usr/ -name libboost'01:39
bradlanddandaman: be careful killing processes though. when you kill an app, it's like pulling the rub out from under it. the app doesn't have a chance to go through all it's shutdown procedures, which can cause problems.01:39
ebbx4556: try 'find /usr/ -name libboost*'01:39
dandamanahh01:39
ScuniziViggleik: #vmware typically..01:39
Viggleikthx lol01:39
dandamanis there a hotkey to get to the system monitor? like in windows there is ctrl+alt+delete01:40
Scunizidandaman: you can add the system monitor to the top bar on the screen that show the clock.. right mouse click "add" and look for system monitor.01:40
x4556ebb: http://pastebin.com/m7f26f6a001:41

upgrdmanin firefox if i double click on part of the url in the address bar it selects the entire url. in windows it will select just the piece you double click.. is there a way to enable this in ubuntu's firefox?01:42
jasmuz!ubuntu one01:42
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ubuntu one01:42
jasmuz!ubuntuone01:42
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ubuntuone01:42

macoupgrdman: or maybe it's single click...01:42
bradland!#ubuntu+101:42
ubottuKarmic Koala is the codename for Ubuntu 9.10, due October 29th, 2009 - Karmic is still NOT stable and MAY break - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+101:42
macoupgrdman: there is a clicky way to select the whole thing, i know that01:42
bradlandupgrdman: i know exactly what you're talking about, but i don't know of any single-word selection shortcut in FF Linux01:43
upgrdmanmaco: ya i know about that... but its a bitch. and it seems like only firefox does it that way. every other app in ubuntu works like i want ... double click selects the part01:44
upgrdmanbradland: ok :( at least im not alone01:44
bradlandupgrdman: trust me, every time i double click, i'm all @#$%!01:44
Scuniziupgrdman: I hate how that behaves in windows.. I much prefer the other way01:44

macoupgrdman: dont say the b-word ;)01:45
ebbx4556: wait01:45

CShadowRunAnyone know how i can force the keyboard shortcuts dialog to take a modifier on it's own as a shortcut? On my laptop Mod4 is a "Home" key, and i'd like to bind it to show desktop.01:45
Scunizibradland: that tells me something is different in FF.. you might find it in about:config01:45
bradlandScunizi: however, i may have just had an epiphany. maybe dots do not constitute a word boundary in Ubuntu/Linux01:46

ScuniziEdson`: only if you have a seperate /home partiton01:48
Scunizi*partition01:48
Edson`Scunizi: And how do you create such a partition?01:48
VXxedscunizi: It may turn on the fans in my laptop, so it's worth trying.  That or debugging the DSDT, and that looks like a long process01:49
BaseBallBoywhen i try to connect to my other computer through an ssh server my terminal says, "Permission denied, please try again." what am i doing wrong (and please note both computers have been sudo apt-get install ssh  ;))01:49
bradlandthis is interesting. in gedit, and in the string "www.google.com", the dots represent word boundaries, so that throws my theory out the window01:50
ScuniziEdson`: on install you have to manually partition.. if you haven't done that then gparted can create a partiton with whatever leftover space you currently have.. you then copy all your /home files including the hidden . files to that new partition.. when doing the fresh install use the manual partitioning tool to name but NOT format that partition.01:50

bradlandwhy are you trying to ssh, exactly?02:05

MenZaHordeking: Not really, no - why not use the wine .deb repositories?02:07
kisukecrdlb: thanks no i need to figure out what i have that is proessor intensive02:07
FlannelHordeking: Wine has an Ubuntu repository with the current version (might also have dailies, I don't know).  In general, when compiling from source, use checkinstall02:07
Flannel!checkinstall | Hordeking02:07
MenZaHordeking: They're a few days late, but that shouldn't matter.02:07
ubottuHordeking: checkinstall is a wrapper to "make install", useful for installing programs you compiled. It will create a .deb package, which will be listed in the APT database and can be uninstalled like other packages. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CheckInstall - Read the warnings at the top and bottom of that web page, and DO NOT interrupt CheckInstall while it's running!02:07
MenZaFlannel: checkinstall isn't particularly good if the packages are still badly packaged... the best would be the repository, really.02:07
Lopta1Is there some tool like iotop but which could measure IOPS (Input/Output operations Per Second) for the each task in the real-time just like iotop? I want to see how much impact were mysql producing to the drives io performance02:07

BlacKnightAnyone here have a Logitech G25 wheel ?02:08
=== Jnykiel is now known as Guest5842
bradlandBaseBallBoy: ping 192.168.0.802:09
JJman6thats my device but i don't think hte ID's are correct as thats what my rule is  assigning is there a way i can GET the actual ID of my device02:09
BaseBallBoywhat does that do?02:09
HordekingThanks guys. I'll check this stuff02:09
craigbass1976BaseBallBoy, I might have missed some of the conversation...  Is ssh running?  ps -ef | grep ssh02:09
craigbass1976Anyone having trouble playing farkle on facebook?  My wife is yelling about it, but I have flash 10 installed.  Couldn't find a newer version on adobe's site02:09
bradlandBaseBallBoy: ping is a basic network diagnostic utility. it sends ICMP packets to a host, which instruct it to reply, then records the amount of time it takes.02:10
dva5912x_: but, does avidemux have sub titles? or even title slide stuff? I need something like that02:10
dva5912just so i can make easy work out of this02:10
crdlbkisuke: 'while true; do echo; done' should do it02:10
bradlandBaseBallBoy: it'll keep running, so just press ctrl-c to stop it02:10
craigbass1976I think my neighbor is going to shoot me over the farkle thing too02:10
MacOS_UserOk, so, let just say that for the sake of understanding man, I download the Ubuntu 9.10 "beta" man, and then I install it man, then, as predicted, the new version hits the street man, can I update directly to the new version without doing a full reinstall man from the beta?02:11
BilliardHordeking: you can use checkinstall to create a deb from source02:11
BaseBallBoynow what?02:11
bradlandcraigbass1976: it's good for them to do without. muhahaha02:11
x_dva5912, not sure. just pointing to an option02:11
hanasakihow can I check if my nfs is mounted nosquash?02:11
StFShello, how can I see whether I have the 64 bit or 32 bit version of ubuntu installed? If there is a /lib64 directory, does that necessarily mean that I have the 64 bit version?02:11
BilliardHordeking: sorry that question was old, window wasnt scrolled02:11
dva5912x_: k, i hear ya. Unfortunently. That option isnt viable for me02:11

BilliardMacOS_User: yes you can upgrade, dont need to do a full reinstall02:12
Hilikushey guys02:12
Hilikushow do i remove old kernels?02:12

craigbass1976bradland, ;)02:13
bradland:)02:13
MacOS_Userunbutto: are you saying that even the release after 29 OCT 09 will break? That unlike other Ubuntu releases, this one is being released despite it not being ready for prime time man?02:13
BilliardHilikus: linux-image-<version>02:13
StFSScunizi: uname -a says: "Linux janus-stfs 2.6.24-25-generic #1 SMP Tue Oct 20 07:31:10 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux" so there's no mention of 64 bits there either so I'm getting a little sceptical02:13
HilikusBilliard: cool, thanks02:13
bradlandBaseBallBoy: how'd that ping work out?02:13
ScuniziStFS: weird.. usually it mentions x86 or amd64..  probably 32bit02:14
violet523right now im hitting e at the grrub screen and manually typing it in02:14
protecttoo many bugs here02:14
BaseBallBoyall it said what a bunch of stuff02:14

SirisianCan you use system calls in a kernel module?02:15
StFSJJman6: thanks... what about "uname -a"02:15
ZykoticK9StFS, the i686 in your uname means 32bit02:15

team_duncanAnybody feel like helping someone with a wine problem?02:16
craigbass1976Hilikus, Oh, you're right.  I never paid attention; I think I just counted 15 in my menu.lst02:16
StFSJJman6: that's an oops?02:16
Billiardteam_duncan: whats the issue?02:16
JJman6no i repasted previos entry02:16
craigbass1976So, the gist of it is I'm out of luck in the farkle dept, or my wife is at least?02:16
bradlandLooks like a Vodaphone USB 3G NIC02:16
bradlandcraigbass1976: what happens when she tries to play it?02:17
StFSIs there any downside now to running the 64 bit version? any incompatabilities for desktop usage that you have come across?02:17
MacOS_Useryou man, I seemed to have lost connectivity man.02:17
BilliardStFS: people seem to have more problems with flash on 64bit02:18
MacOS_Userubutto, can you tell me the channel you suggested again please man?02:18
RedLAnceStFS, I've been running the 64 bit version for close to a year now...I've had very little trouble with it02:18
team_duncanbilliard: trying to install diablo 2 in fact, but when I try right clicking the install file on the cd, and clicking open with wine application, i get nada... when I try "wine /media/cdrom0/installer.exe" i get "wine: could not load L"D:\\installer.exe": Module not found"02:18
bradland!#ubuntu+1 | MacOS_User02:18
MacOS_Userthank you man02:18
ZykoticK9StFS, there aren't too many downsides to running 64bit anymore -- flash works fine on my system -- i have run into some problems with game emulators (getlibs does solve most of those too)02:18
kewlbns69i ran flash on 64bit...in general it worked02:18
bradlandthe dude abides02:18
StFSBilliard: ahh... that was probably my reason for going with the 32 bit version when I installed this thing ;)02:19
bradlandor in this case, the man abides02:19
StFSZykoticK9: thanks02:19
Billiardteam_duncan: did you install wine from the package manager?02:19
team_duncanyep... and it runs notepad and explorer.exe just fine02:19
kewlbns69why would you want to go 32bit if you have 64bit hardware? it's like running dos on a pentium D lol02:19
StFSI'll pick the 64 bit then when I reinstall 9.1002:19
bradlandMacOS_User: also, ubottu is a bot, which is why he doesn't answer02:20
team_duncanbilliard: i actually tried executing the installer file from within explorer but i got "access denied"02:20
kewlbns69that's my plan sifs :)02:20
protectdriver of ubuntu910 for intel x4500 also has bugs?02:20

SikEnCideRC is release canidate still beta02:21
macohmm?02:22
kewlbns69thats what i thought02:22
macoit is RC02:22
ian_macbeta and RC are *not* the same thing, at least in the normal software industry02:22
SikEnCideit just means it is 1 step closer to being stable02:22
macoand it is frozen for release02:22
craigbass1976bradland, http://www.thebestcabinetsite.com/Screenshot-FARKLE.png    It's hung up there02:22
geniiSikEnCide: RC != beta02:22
macoian_mac: beta and RC are 2 weeks apart in ubuntu land too02:22
kewlbns69RC's are still "pre-release" officially02:22
kewlbns69hence...beta02:23
macoby "frozen for release" i mean they're rolling the ISOs for the release now02:23

JJman6vlc is extremely buggy and  unstable for me.  8-(02:36
duckx0rScunizi, you can run QT programs in Gnome, but they are meant for KDE. The reverse applies for GTK02:36
digimausakatsuki: I wouldn't know.  I have a 400W speaker/amp system hooked up to my computer, so I don't mess with the volume much in software. :)02:36
arghh2d2kewlbns69: what do you use for audio?02:36
kewlbns69i just found an article on linux audio software today i'll grab it02:36
Scuniziduckx0r: yep.. but that should have been for beatbreaker02:37
duckx0rScunizi, so basically they won't integrate as well into the desktop02:37

arghh2d2kewlbns69: ardour is a really good audio recording software but it kind of requires you to run a special real-time kernel to get the most out of it.02:38
duckx0rScunizi, yeah i can imagine02:38
bradland_al__: http://linuxcommando.blogspot.com/2008/06/show-progress-during-dd-copy.html02:38
bradland_it's not so straight forward02:39
JJman6anyone have any experience getting USB 3G modems working.  (i'm trying to use wvdial)  but with no luck02:39
kewlbns69get the most or make it work? cuz as long as i can get it to capture audio from my motu that's all i need really02:39
harrison-bergerohello02:39
duckx0rhi02:39
kewlbns69don't do much with midi or anything else02:39
harrison-bergerois anyone here proficient with ubuntu-windows networking?02:39
protectinputing by cellphone is so slow02:39
JJman6Audacity is pretty good sound editing program as well02:39
harrison-bergeroi can't seem to get my ubuntu working properly on the LAN#02:39
JJman6harrison-bergero: Unplug windows machine, all will work better.  ;-)02:40
kewlbns69i tried the windows version of audacity...it's ugly and badly designed02:40
snagaakatsuki: vlc has "software amplification" for some reason02:40
snagawhich, of course, you shouldn't use02:40
arghh2d2kewlbns69: what kind of music work are you planning on doing? live recordings? remixes? midi, keyboard?02:40
harrison-bergeroJJman6...well it seems the windows machines are able to transfer files back and forth...its the ubuntu machine that cant02:41
bradland_harrison-bergero: narrow your query a bit. what are you trying to accomplish right now?02:41
kewlbns69i'm a studio/hobby musician...don't play with midi much except for the occasional backing track when i need some drums or bass w/ a VSTI02:41
JJman6naturally.  Samba prolly isn't setup right02:41
harrison-bergerobradland....i would like to transfer a file from ubuntu to a windows machine over LAN02:41
bradland_harrison-bergero: try connecting directly to the Ubuntu machine by IP02:41
mickster04harrison-bergero, have you tried sharing the folder with the file in?02:42
=== bradland_ is now known as bradland
harrison-bergeromickster04;  yes02:42
mickster04harrison-bergero, and did u check the samba settings?02:43
protectwanted to improve my english skills here ,but felt failure02:43
kewlbns69i may do a bit of ocasional midi work for as i said...backing tracks which is why i've waited so long to "officially" switch to linux because midi was only recently implemented in ardour02:43
harrison-bergeromickster04...where do i check the samba settings?02:43
binskipy2uhey guys, anyone tell me if these links are legit? it says leaked final karmic02:43
binskipy2uhttp://www.unixmen.com/news-today/506-leaked-links-to-ubuntu-koala-final02:43
binskipy2ujust wondering...02:43
FloodBot3binskipy2u: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.02:43
COROh!help02:44
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. :-)02:44
binskipy2uis it possible that the final is "out" to certain people, groups of people etc02:44
JJman6its been a long while since i've configured Samba.  But also see if Samba browser lets you see windows machines!  (if they are even still using that)02:44
arghh2d2kewlbns69: kewlbns69 sounds like you want to use ardour but i would suggest installing a recording distro like ubuntu studio, studio 64 if you have 64 bit, or even just run dyne:bolic which is a live cd.  real-time kernel is crucial for recording with linux02:44
JJman6can i not ask a question and get an answer?02:44
protecttomorrow02:44
COROh!info02:44
ubottuRetrieve information on a package: !info <package>02:44
mickster04harrison-bergero, well when u share a folder u have to install samba,  which should work automagically02:44
harrison-bergeroJJman6...i simply used the network tab.  This is a fresh install so i dont know if samba is running or not02:45
Scunizikewlbns69: check out the link.. they have repos you can list in ubuntu and install lots of music tools that are much better than audacity.. http://www.medibuntu.org/02:45
COROh!info02:45
al__bradland: do you know if you can use dd to write a copy of a disk (bin file) to a new device, even if that bin was created with ddrescue?02:45
VXxedUhhh...where can I get intel's compiler?02:45
om26erbinskipy2u: this is the latest cd and no one can get more recent cd : http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/20091027/karmic-desktop-i386.iso.  but its not final02:45
harrison-bergeromickster04....ah, you mean share on ubuntu side.  Let me try that.02:45
bradlandi'm not familiar with ddrescue02:45
Mike999I'm wondering if anyone has experience of having 2 nvidia cards (1 PCI-E + 1 PCI) and having 3 monitors work as one display to help me reconfigure my xorg.conf I would very very greatfull as I've been playing around with this for days02:45
JJman6harrison-bergero: well there's your first problem. make sure samaba is running02:45
al__bradland: that output for dd worked by the way - ta02:45
VXxedI can't actually find the iasl compiler anymore02:45
kewlbns69yeah i'm concidering that but will that have the same capabilities as the standard ubuntu desktop? i mean could i use the package manager to put other "standard" software on?02:45
mickster04harrison-bergero, alternativuly, share a folder on the windows machine with write privelages and view that thru the file browser, then paste into it?02:45
jessicasidewaysHello02:46
mickster04harrison-bergero, yeah from the linux side02:46
mickster04hey02:46
harrison-bergeroLOL...installing now02:46
arghh2d2kewlbns69: screw that, get a real recording kernel first...you cant just load recording software on any old distro and expect to make quality recordings.02:46
Scunizikewlbns69: it's a sister release.. it's based on ubuntu.. so their repos are compatable02:46
mickster04harrison-bergero, hope it works:D02:46
harrison-bergerothats very strange that i could pull files from windows just using the network tab but could not go the other way02:46
binskipy2uanyone here have a perfectly working 9.04 (64bit) system, and feels they "SHOULD" upgrade, or do a clean install (either one) is there a good reason ?02:46
jessicasidewaysI was wondering, does anyone know how to get wireless working on Ubuntu? I am using the PPC release of the latest version?02:46
kewlbns69that's what i thought scunizi but i figured i'd ask the "pros" first :)02:46
harrison-bergerohave to restart for this to work02:47
harrison-bergerobrb02:47
VXxed..Anyone?02:47
voxbinskipy2u: you mean upgrade to 9.10?02:47
VXxediasl compiler?02:47
Scunizikewlbns69: when addressing someone in here use their nick or your messages get lost in the noise.. type the first few characters and hit TAB for auto complete.. I see you just did that so keep it up!02:47
Billiardbinskipy2u: im goin to do a reinstall, just because it is so quick , why not02:47
kewlbns69will ubuntu studio follow the same release schedule as ubuntu desktop?02:47
arghh2d2kewlbns69: yeah, pretty much02:47
harrison-bergeroOK what does this mean:   Ask the administrator to add the line "usershare owner only = false"02:48
harrison-bergeroto the [global] section of the smb.conf to allow this.02:48
kewlbns69they have the RC for 9.10 so i thought maybe but...02:48
mickster04jessicasideways, what have you tried doing? i find that ubuntu is pretty good with wireless:/02:48
kewlbns69thanx arghh :)02:48
bradlandal__: i can't seem to find any information as to whether ddrescue images are compatible with dd02:48
arghh2d2kewlbns69: some stuff wont work with ubuntu studios real time kernel but most will02:48
binskipy2uok just wondering.. that site i just found via tuxmachines dot org, had ,so  it says, the final of karmic , doesnt say "daily", says karmic-desktop-iso-amd6402:48
rcmaehlsudo shutdown now -P02:48
jessicasidewaysOkay, I have read the Ubuntu website, installed the drivers for my card and I am still unable to see wifi networks nor connect to them.02:48
JJman6Scunizi: you've piqued my curiousity now.  Whats different about a ubuntu-studio install that makes the audio software run so much better.  Is the kernal optimized for that or something?  cause i run all those just in a regular install (64bit of course)02:48
binskipy2uguess anyone could "rename" an iso to "fool" people02:48
mickster04jessicasideways, what have you tried doing? i find that ubuntu is pretty good with wireless:/?02:48
kewlbns69well i'm just talking about basic stuff like firefox n pidgin or something02:49
jessicasidewaysI am new at linux and I am trying to figure out what I should try to do without bothering anyone. However, all of the solutions people have offered do not seem to work.02:49
arghh2d2kewlbns69: ubuntu studio will probably stay a step behind whatever ubuntu current release is02:49
kewlbns69it's built for multimedia so i'm sure i wo'nt have any issues with a/v packages02:49
mickster04jessicasideways, when u click on the network icon in the panel do you get any options for wireless networks02:49
jessicasidewaysSome people have even suggested to go to System > Administration > Network but it does not even exist02:49
mickster04or is it just wired?02:49
om26erkewlbns69: yes i think02:49
voxbinskipy2u: whether to install from scratch or to just upgrade is personal preference.. i spend a solid day customizing a new ubuntu install, so for me it makes sense to just upgrade02:49
jessicasidewaysI do not believe there is a network panel on my install.02:50
mickster04jessicasideways, system>pref>net02:50
jessicasidewaysOf course, are you referring to a diffrerent panel other than the top menu?02:50
bradlandal__: since ddrescue does a block level copy, you could just use it to "restore" your image, rather than using dd02:50
jessicasidewaysNetwork Connections or Network Proxy?02:50
harrison-bergerohow can i tell if the share option worked?02:50
binskipy2ueven if this download is final, i'm sure the repos arent updated yet, to install the "stuff" that you can install for karmic anyway02:50
harrison-bergerois there an icon change?02:50
mickster04jessicasideways, no, on ur top panel should be some icons like volume etc02:50
mickster04harrison-bergero, try selecting sharing settings again02:50
redwind01hi02:50
mickster04jessicasideways, connections02:51
jessicasidewaysWell, there is the option for the ethernet, which I am using right now but there are no options for wireless.02:51
jessicasidewaysNo SSID, nothing.02:51
harrison-bergeromickster04...doesnt work under user account...i had to change it using nautilus02:51
arghh2d2kewlbns69: audio interface compatibility will most likely be your main issue02:51
harrison-bergerobut then back in user account i still cant change it02:51
mickster04jessicasideways, which means ur hardware isnt installed prperly:/02:51
harrison-bergeroso is it changed or only when i use nautilus?02:51
mickster04harrison-bergero, it should be changed?02:51
jessicasidewaysOi. So how do I install it properly? I downloaded the drivers.02:51
webbb82when i join a irc room i also get a chanserv window for every chat room i enter  can i close the chanserv or whats it for02:52
harrison-bergeromickster04...as user, where can i verify this?02:52
kewlbns69allright i'm out you guys have a good night/day take care02:52
almoxarifejessicasideways: what type of wifi do you have?02:52
jessicasidewaysNone at all.02:52
redwind01 is there a chat channel any would recommend for gaming questions?02:52
mickster04harrison-bergero, by goin on the windows machine an loooking?02:52
=== Whitesquall1 is now known as Whitesquall
binskipy2uwhen you boot up with the live cd/ rc of karmic, when youc lcik on "about" will it say release candidate.. ive always checked out alphas, betas, etc, never did check the about status?02:52
mickster04harrison-bergero, altho there shoul;d eb an icon change02:53
jessicasidewaysMy wireless card is the default one that comes in a 1.33GHz iBook G4.02:53
harrison-bergeromickster04...its there on windows now.02:53
al__bradland: not sure about that. I imaged the whole disk (not just partition). So to write the bin file, I think would be something like sudo ddrescue -v /home/user/file.bin /dev/sdb02:53
mickster04harrison-bergero, well there u go, it worked02:53
ray__does anyone have experience with honeyd on ubuntu?02:53
AndorinSo it seems as though my Mute keyboard shortcut isn't working anymore, even when I assign it to something like Alt+M instead of the usual Mute key. Anyone have any idea what could be causing this?02:53
harrison-bergeromickster04...I see no icon change on linux side.  Maybe after a reboot?02:53
mickster04nope02:54
mickster04should just work02:54
bradlandal__: yep, that's what i'd do.  just use ddrescue to write it back02:54
mickster04harrison-bergero, does it share it anywy02:54
Lopta1!seen velko02:54
ubottuI have no seen command02:54
harrison-bergeromickster04...last question....i still cant open the folder02:55
jessicasidewaysI am not too entirely sure how to get it to work. I have been looking for answers up and down and seen nothing.02:55
harrison-bergeromickster04..."unknown media type"02:55
harrison-bergerofrom windows into linux all good02:55
jessicasidewaysI have even been asking people who have also reported installing Ubuntu on an iBook G4 but to no avail.02:55
mickster04harrison-bergero, well when you open  a file browser (nautilus) without any special priviliges, you should be able to share a folder?02:55
harrison-bergerobut not the other way...linux into windows...some folders open others dont02:55
rasstarwhy no one using kubuntu? i found the desktop to be much better than ubuntu02:56
mickster04harrison-bergero, so if u browse windows folders in linux it breaks?02:56
boarmelonI'm looking for a way to change cpu frequencies when switching from battery power to ac and vice versa. Any help?02:56
harrison-bergeromickster04....its odd,  why does this discriminate between folders on the windows machine02:56
webbb82can anyone explane the differance between gnome and gtk+ i see gtk everywhere but dont know what it is02:56
harrison-bergeromickster04...only 2 folders break, the other are ok02:56
jessicasidewaysrasstar, *I* am not using kubuntu simply due to the fact that I want my bloody iBook to work.02:56
jessicasidewaysSorry for my language.02:56
harrison-bergeromickster04....linux browsing into windows02:57
mickster04rasstar, it doesnt matter which windows manager we use:P02:57
mickster04harrison-bergero, i have no idea...are they important? cos i cant begin to guess at whats goin wrong02:57
Scuniziwebbb82: in my little knowledge about that.. gnome is a desktop and gtk is designed to go with it when making programs.. the alternative is QT02:57
digimauswebbb82: If I remember right - GTK+ is a programming library that is used to build the GNOME GUI02:57
harrison-bergeromickster04...i suppose i could move the contents out into another folder and delete the folders i cant access02:58
webbb82i see so gtk themes would work i n gnome02:58
harrison-bergeroas a workaround02:58
harrison-bergerolet me try it, brb02:58
mickster04harrison-bergero, that would be my lazy suggestion02:58
digimauswebbb82: AFAIK, yes.02:58
jessicasidewaysSo, does anyone know how to get the wireless card in my iBook G4 working?02:58
boarmelonI'm looking for a way to change cpu frequencies when switching from battery power to ac and vice versa. Any help?02:59
mickster04boarmelon, there are tools available thru synaptics package manager i believe02:59

ScuniziJJman: unplug it and open a terminal .. type dmesg and look at the end.. then plug it in again and reinitiate the command and look at the end of all that shows up.. that will typically be your modem and the port will be listed.03:14
Roeyseems like my kernel isn't loading raid drivers... grub times out and then dumps me to a busybox shell... I do ls /dev/md* and don't see anything there, so I can only assume that the raid drivers are not loaded.  Yet they are (dm_raid* is loaded according to modprobe).  Yet the kernel panics and decides it can't find / (which is on /de/vmd1)03:15

mickster04DuckGod, there really arent any "programs" for making games in linux, but you could use a text editor and gcc to compile stuff03:32

wirawanmickster04, yesterday, I play use vlc player but not use..03:37
ZykoticK9Hilikus, System / Admin / Services - uncheck Bluetooth device management03:37
ScuniziDorian2: it would be the same then.. randr is the underlying system. JJman mentioned using lxrandr as a gui to control it.03:37
mickster04wirewam ok mayb realplayer?03:37
Dorian2Scunizi, okay ill look intot hat then03:37
HilikusZykoticK9: doesnt that disable it only in the current session?03:37
mickster04Hilikus, nope, every boot up from then on03:38
BravewolfJJman: duplexing? I think that my sound card is natively full duplex.....03:38
mickster04Hilikus, its removes it from the startup list03:38
Hilikushm, thanks mickster04  i didn't know that03:38
JJmanBravewolf: You need to enable in pulseaudio manager the ability for multiple sounds to be played simultaneously otherwise skype tends to break your sound03:38
ZykoticK9Hilikus, in Services no - but i'd use use mickster04's suggestion - which might be current session only03:38
Hilikusi don't want in the current session03:39
Hilikusi want to disable it at bootup03:39

mickster04Hilikus, just realised im ysing karmic RC so it will be called Services:/03:40
mickster04user_, flash?03:40
Hilikusyou guys are giving me different info but fyi mickster04 i don't have it in startup apps, the only bluetooth i have there is the applet. nothing about the daemon03:40
user_mickster04 i have gnash installed and does not work anyway03:40
mickster04Hilikus, yeah my bad03:40
JJmanBravewolf: well perhaps i don't have an answer to your problem then.   But i know that simultaneous use of Skype and other applications is not possible by default.  (possibly could be the reason for you latency issue, i don't know)03:40

SkyHighi really like linux, but the terminal and installation is SO complicated... with windows, its easy, but really laggy and gots many bugs, and also i like linux cause of the smoothness and the fell of the layout! lol04:24

Out_Coldi'm sure there is fine print somewhere04:24
Out_Coldi need to get commercial optics lol04:25
mickster04SkyHigh, synaptics package manager is way easier to use than the way windows does it, you dont have to find and download installers run them etc, its all in one place? u dont need to use terminal too much like uu use command prompt?04:25
SkyHighi have desktop, wired, and att isp...04:25
thedude42SkyHigh.... I would argue ubuntu's installation is less complicated than windows, in that it doesn't even require a reboot during the installation process until it is complete04:25

Safe%s doesn't cut it.06:38
macoGalaen: i said "at least as big" ;) i prefer 2*ramsize, because you want to fit your ram + whatever swapped when you go to hibernate. with 3-4GiB of RAM its unlikely youll have >1GiB of swap in use before you hibernate, so its usually safe to just have like 1 GiB extra, but....depends on your use case06:39

Echo_of_Silencethx06:41
kaikunlol maco06:41
kaikuntrue06:41
macotanxxx: ok, so you need split tunneling. youre going to have to figure out what IP range should be going through the VPN and what should not06:41
xxploitkaikun, most users using kubuntu use qt4 apps whereas gnome users use gtk apps. It doesnt matter if you wish not to do this but apps like rythmbox/xchat are gtk apps06:41
tanxxxmaco: Sorry,my English is poor.I trying my best to describle my problem.06:41
Galaenit's just for geek kaikun if you are curious you can try to code this plugin and share this06:41

psychuilSorry about my lang.07:26

coz_coordinador,  well I am not at all experienced with installing on external media  but  I wuold guess a larger media would be necessary  you could google installing ubuntu on external media  like flash drive etc :)07:37

psychuilActionParsnip1: I come to find too many tutorials around the web on installing stuff, and they always say something like "do 'sudo apt-get install <some package>'" And i never seem to have that package. Could it be coz i'm running ubuntu from a liveusb?07:38

meowmintxits to do with sound in general. what i am getting is a delayed reaction while playing mp3s atm its not playing in real time and not working. i have saves alsamixer as my sound card as my onboard one is stufed07:41
psychuilActionParsnip1: how do i hunt down the right repo then?07:41
ActionParsnip1Kurogane: you can port forward / virtual server     you tell the router to forward certain port numbers to a certain IP and it will connect07:42
ActionParsnip1psychuil: example07:42
ActionParsnip1!info firefox07:42
ubottufirefox (source: firefox-3.0): meta package for the popular mozilla web browser. In component main, is optional. Version 3.0.14+build2+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.04.1 (jaunty), package size 67 kB, installed size 124 kB07:42
harrison-bergeroevery single file was a connection timed out error!07:42
ActionParsnip1psychuil: if you read the above you can see firefox is in te main repository, if you cannot install firefox you need to make sure you have the main repo enabled07:43
ActionParsnip1!info devede07:43
ubottudevede (source: devede): program to create video DVDs. In component multiverse, is optional. Version 3.12c-0ubuntu1 (jaunty), package size 1516 kB, installed size 3456 kB07:43
ActionParsnip1psychuil: that app is in the multiverse repo so will need to have that enabled to get access07:43
Kuroganetonyyarusso, for example i want to ping 1.2.3.4 and the ping respond like as localhost not as internet07:44
ActionParsnip1psychuil: if its not in the standard repo, you can find a PPA to add and install from someone elses packages to get what you want07:44
tonyyarussoKurogane: ah, you should be able to do that by adding an entry to /etc/hosts07:44
tonyyarussoKurogane: actually, it may be more involved than that - hold on a sec07:46
KuroganeActionParsnip1, i don't have router and i don't like use router neither07:46
psychuilActionParsnip1: i'm was trying to install jdownloader, and i needed to get java-6-sun for it, but i can't.07:46

histo!sudo psychuil07:53
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about sudo psychuil07:53
histo!sudo | psychuil07:54
ubottupsychuil: sudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)07:54
cwillu_at_workpsychuil, gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list07:54
cwillu_at_worksome day gvfs will grow the ability to prompt for auth when needed, but not today :p07:54
ActionParsnip1psychuil: thats why, gedit ran as you, a user. add gksudo to the start of the command07:54
rashed2020Wouldn't sudo gedit work as well?07:55
fahadsadahrashed2020: It's bad practise.07:55
ActionParsnip1psychuil: if you  dont add sudo or gksudo the app is ran as a user, users dont have write access to /etc so youwill be denied access07:55
rashed2020I really don't see that much difference in application. Works either way.07:55
ActionParsnip1rashed2020: it will but its not advised as sudo is for CLI apps ONLY07:55
psychuilSo just add sudo to everything i do?07:55
mnemonicaactionparsnip1: forgive my ignorance, but how? I don't see an option for that.07:56
fahadsadahpsychuil: gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list07:56
ActionParsnip1rashed2020: sudo doesnt configure the X environment correctly so ownerships and paermissions getdamaged, hence why gksudo and kdesudo exist07:56
knoppiespsychuil, only if you need admin privilages.07:56
psychuilI always need admin privilages :D07:56
ActionParsnip1mnemonica: ok if you read the left pane you will find games07:56
knoppiespsychuil, be careful when using sudo, or gksu (for gui applications) it often assumes you know what you doing. and doesnt ask for confirmation07:56
psychuilAnd ActionParsnip1, talk to me like to a complete idiot please, since half the stuff you say goes over my head :)07:57

obiwan_i think there's one command to show that, not sure though08:30
ActionParsnip1psychuil: looks like you need a repo or two to get these dependancies in08:30
noobdziekanthere is no command.08:30
ActionParsnip1!info libdvdread308:30
ubottuPackage libdvdread3 does not exist in jaunty08:30
psychuilGuess those were the repos from the debian site guide.08:30
zaoulIs it possible to image a drive with dd, but since I plan on imaging onto a larger drive, a straight dd would copy the partition table and would not see the extra space, how could I get around this?08:30
obiwan_ok then, i just wanted a command to show them without starting a browser08:31
ActionParsnip1zaoul: dd only copies the data so the free space will be vidisble08:31
ActionParsnip1visible08:31
obiwan_thanks anyway noobdziekan and tonyyarusso08:31

CoUrPsEIs there any great gains in Karmic?08:53
vectrixand in the distribution before I get a black screen08:53
knoppiesvectrix, I/O errors could be your drive going (or cabling), but is most probably a driver issue.08:54
vectrixI guess it is a common problem with nforce 780a and sata drives ?!08:54
vectrixmy hardwire is fine when starting windows08:54
DireFoguh nforce fun08:54

vectrixbut that won´t help either08:54
knoppiesvectrix, I would try install it on an HDD, and see if the problem persists. I dont use the live CD for long periods of time. Its more an emergancy disk for me. I would try find an old HDD or something.08:54

Argosis the browsing quick with ubuntu08:56
cybersplicevectrix: More than likely it is a driver issue. Give 9.10 a try. Can't hurt, eh?08:56
knoppiesArgos, depends on what kind of browsing. and some FF plugins can bog down your system.08:56
knoppiesArgos, but generally yes. Aspecially if you comparing to IE08:57

knoppiesharrison-bergero, as a quick fix I would just try upload them in smaller chunks. But thats obviously the long way of going around it. I wouldnt know. I stopped trying to get windows shares working a while ago.09:40

harrison-bergerobut the other way around continues to give a connection timed out error09:43

ActionParsnip2ubuntu_: /dev/sda1 isn't a type11:09

om26erubuntu_, that was an example11:09

ubuntu_Failed to mount '/dev/sda1': Argument invalide11:12
snwhi thr11:12
ubuntu_The device '/dev/sda1' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS.11:12
ubuntu_Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a11:12
ubuntu_partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?11:12

harrison-bergerowhy cant windows play nice with ubuntu?11:13

ActionParsnip2harrison-bergero: add the last 20 lines or so (you'll see what I mean) to your /etc/samba/smb.conf11:17
ActionParsnip2harrison-bergero: the thing in the brackets is the share name11:17
ubuntu_http://paste.ubuntu.com/303506/ this is for you om26er11:17
ActionParsnip2harrison-bergero: the rest is self explanatory, you will need to change the allowed user to your user name11:17
susbwoypawel: what are the permissions for /media/dysk?11:18
ActionParsnip2harrison-bergero: then save the file and run: sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart
