MsTegansebsebseb so maybe I shouldn't panic lol00:00
Mike_lifeguarddavidl_: then you can get an old version from mysql's website and install it manually if you can't find a packaged version, I guess.00:00
sebsebsebMsTegan: How much RAM do you have?00:00

ubottuRaXOR: 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. :-)00:00
davidl_Mike_lifeguard: I was only able to find version 4.1 there...00:01

CuddlesI was using ipconfig00:01
RaXORifconfig | grep "inet addr"00:01
davidl_Mike_lifeguard:  so backports only go back so far?  Are there different backports for older versions of Ubuntu?  I suppose I could try installing a much older distro..00:02
RaXORthis is sorted =)00:02
MsTegansebsebseb omg, I don't know.  That's how bad I've gotten with computers00:02
sebsebsebMsTegan: there is bound to be a way to get it working in 9.10, but maybe/probably you can  virtual machine 8.10 and have the web cam working :)00:02
RaXOR-> Cuddles  ifconfig | grep "inet addr"00:02
sebsebsebMsTegan: ok  free -m in the terminal and what does it say for total?00:02
Mike_lifeguarddavidl_: Yeah, I mean... old software isn't supported forever; at some point you're supposed to upgrade. I suggest you ask in #mysql about getting an old version00:02

davidl_Mike_lifeguard: but I guess older packages are deleted eventually......00:06
Mike_lifeguarddavidl_: Nope. The old packaged versions might not even be around. For example, if the version you're looking for is from a version of ubuntu that isn't supported any longer, then there's no need to have it in the archives, and it probably isn't00:06

delightMike_lifeguard: no I'm talking about the regular updates that comes after release00:20
archet45back :)00:20
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: Can you edit the boot line in grub (for the normal boot) and remove 'quiet' and 'splash' - then use that line to boot?00:20
archet45i deleted some lines from fstab that pertained to the two partitions i was having issues with and it has resolved the issue :)00:21
sharmonMike_lifeguard: can you explain that process in more detail please?00:21
Mike_lifeguarddelight: update-manager should give you those, where they're available. I still don't know how to get changelog entries for CLI though - if you figure it out let me know how you did it please :D00:21
delightMike_lifeguard: don't know either about cli ... but today there where updates for all sort of packages a bunch of kde packages too ... and in the update-manager there was no description00:22
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: in GRUB, hit ESC if you have a timeout - this will stop the timeout. Then, hit 'e' to edit that entry in the boot menu. Then, you want to edit the kernel line to remove those things I mentioned. The kernel line should be obvious - it is the longest one, has something like initrd or something in it00:22
delightwould be great if there would be some web-page with maybe rss-feed that describes the updates00:23
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: quiet and/or splash might be on their own lines - you can remove the whole line if need be00:23
emanuxthis must be the stupidest question but i have to ask it anyway00:23

cerebralHow do I delete the user files from deleted users?  Right click option does not permit "remove to Trash" option.00:34
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: That should give you the scrolling wall of text during boot so you can (supposedly) see what's going on. Normally with errors, it will stop scrolling so you can see them00:34

Is magicrescue likely my best hope? It doesn't automatically mount the stick anymore00:47
PCTeacher012Mike_lifeguard and sebsebseb: because i installed ReactOS and it uses MBR not GRUB. GRUB gives me Error 1700:47

ZykoticK9Rods_Tiger, to turn monitor(s) off you can use the command "sudo xset dpms force off" you might be able to setup a cron job to do this at a particular time -- i'm guessing "... force on" would do the reverse, don't know... good luck00:49

sebsebsebPCTeacher012: ReactOS is on the MBR what?00:56
PCTeacher012ReactOS installs its file on MBR00:56
sebsebsebPCTeacher012: no it's not.   or uhmm?  RactOS should be on a partition!00:56
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: Then you're using GRUB2 (not a big difference, I just thought you were using GRUB legacy for some reason)00:56
sebsebsebPCTeacher012: OS's go on partitions, boot loaders well  the tiny bit of them,  go on the MBR00:57
PCTeacher012sebsebseb: Well yea, it has its own partition, but boot commands are in MBR00:57
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: BUT! that means you cannot edit the file directly - it will simply get overwritten on boot. There should be instructions for how to change things in the header comments00:57
sharmonMike_lifeguard: Should I be using GRUB legacy or a different GRUB?00:57
sebsebsebPCTeacher012: I don't know00:57
Mike_lifeguardsharmon: GRUB2 is fine - that is the current version ("legacy" means "old, unsupported, and deprecated")00:58
sebsebsebPCTeacher012: should be able to edit menu.lst though.   you could even try installing Grub 2 in 9.04,  maybe not the best idea though00:58

baldrick2sorry do not want to confuse01:18
chuckm1reposting the question: I'm having problems with karmic. I originally installed 9.04 via wubi. Should I a) reinstall 9.10 via wubi, b) reinstall 9.04 with a live CD (can I without losing windows?) or c) reinstall 9.04 by wubi?01:18

ubottuDatz1, if removing/adding Trash applet doesn't work you could manually remove items: The location of Trash has changed since 8.04, it is now located in ~/.local/share/Trash | Looking for the trash in previous versions: ~/.Trash01:20
LOPAanyone know how i can see all my hardware drivers01:20
ZykoticK9LOPA, lsmod will list all kernel modules (which are typically drivers)01:21
Nautilusin nautilus I have the Places pane on the left with some media showing that I'd like to get to. I right click and Mount, then right-click and Open, but... nothing happens. tips?01:21
soreauLOPA: That is a subjective question. There are many drivers included wit the kernel you arent using. You can also see all loaded drivers with lsmod01:21
sebsebsebchuckm1: psyical installs are good, try 9.10 like that with a clean  install, if issues you can do 9.0401:21
LOPAZykoticK9, there is no gui to view like in kde01:22
sebsebsebchuckm1: like that psyical partition install01:22
ZykoticK9LOPA, not that i'm personally aware of...01:22
maxx_sorry im back01:22
soreauLOPA: I assume you are talking about proprietary drivers? If this is the case, use sys>admin>hardware drivers01:22
chuckm1sebsebseb: so move my current install with lvpm and then clean install 9.10?01:22
LOPAsoreau, i see nothing in there01:23
maxx_can i use 2 video cards?01:23
soreauLOPA: You might not have any hardware that has a proprietary driver offered01:23
LOPAsoreau, i have the intel 915 chipset and want my resolution to be 1440x90001:23
sebsebsebchuckm1: what's lvmpm?01:24
sebsebsebchuckm1: get hold of data, and get rid of your Wubi install, that's what I would suggest :)  and then do real partitions01:24

soreauLOPA: Intel has strictly oss drivers and they are already installed. Change your resolution with Sys>Prefs>Display01:24
chuckm1sebsebseb: Loopmounted Virtual Partition Manager allows users to upgrade their existing Wubi or Lubi installation to a standard Ubuntu system by transferring all data, settings, and applications from the original install to a dedicated partition.01:24

cramm_Hi. I have the following problem in a clean 9.10 install. After a few days of use (and w/o hs or software changes on my part), no user can login with the 'GNOME' session,. user/password gets accepted. The screen flashes once,  the throbber/load screen is shown and then the users are thrown back to the gdm login screen. the 'safe mode GNOME' session works. So far I've tried the following: Deactivated the nvidia closed driver01:26
arghh2d2_i forgot, how do i kick off my nick that is still lingering from another connect?  i thought it was ghost someting...01:26
slevinhi guys, i am trying to run a command in terminal but it tells me that i dont have permission to do so, how can i take permission?01:27
soreauarghh2d2_: /ghost <user> <password>01:27
Taimslevin: sudo01:27
kacangitem@slevin you must enter root mode first01:27
kacangitemsudo su01:27
soreauslevin: Prefix the command with sudo01:27
soreaukacangitem: That is bad advice01:27
arghh2d2_soreau it says /ghost command not found01:27
kacangitemhow to auto mount device in thunar01:28
soreauarghh2d2_: Ask in #freenode01:28
slevinTaim> and others thanks a lot, so if i am in /var/bin and i want to run this command: ./run_debug, what shall i start with?01:28
cramm_but the probem persist, so it seems this is a ubuntu/gnome software problem. Two additional hints I discovered today: If I go back to use the nvidia aceel drivers I can't enable the desktop effects at all, not even the simpler ones01:28
chuckm1sebsebseb: I guess you're saying I should move my install to a separate partition then clean install 9.10 or 9.04?01:28
soreauslevin: sudo ./run_debug01:28
Taimslevin: sudo /var/bin/run_debug01:28
leonardoottojoin #gnome-do01:29
sebsebsebchuckm1: before I was saying to just get hold of data, and get rid of your Wubi install01:29
cramm_and the other thing I discovered is that is I stop gdm and startx X with startx all works wonderfully. I can even activate the destop effects01:29
sebsebsebchuckm1: however  I just had  a look at the link you gave and lubi01:29
sebsebsebchuckm1: ok looks good01:29
sebsebsebchuckm1: it's 9.04 Wubi install?01:29
soreaucramm_: If that is the case, you did not deactivate the nvidia driver01:29
slevinTiam, soreau and kacangitem thanks a lot guys :)01:29
cramm_so the problem seems to be the GNOME session when launched through gdm.01:30
cramm_soreau, I deactivated, worked with the system a couple of days using the nv driver and activated again01:30
chuckm1sebsebseb: yep. originally 9.04 wubi. recently "upgraded" to 9.10.01:30

Datz1when I delete items from a 2ndary harddisk, do these items go in the trash on my primary hard disk?01:30
cramm_soreau, because it is clear it isn't a nvidia driver problem01:30
sebsebsebchuckm1: thanks for the link by the way, that will be a useful link for me to give to other people that I will be helping in the future in here01:30
sebsebsebchuckm1: the file system for Wubi is Ext2?01:31

R0b0t1I have an apple keyboard/hub, but I have this problem even when the mouse is not plugged in through it.01:31
rstrawsbcd work but dvds don't01:31
soreaucramm_: If you try with a live cd and it works ok, it is likely a problem with your install. Is this an upgrade or clean install?01:31
chuckm1sebsebseb: not sure. How do I check?01:31
cramm_soreau, I eman the problem is exactly the same irrspective of which driver I use. and that's why I think it's a ubuntu/gnome software problem01:31

cramm_soreau: clean install01:31
lazy_manhay everywone, i have a problem. i cant unmount my harddisk except with root account. any solution?01:31
sebsebsebchuckm1: diskfree or something, k disk free or something,  search synaptic for  disk free.   or maybe the software centre.   or you could  install gparted and have a look in tehre01:31
sebsebsebchuckm1: well wubi is a bit different when it comes to partitining01:32
soreauLOPA: Ok, something is wrong with your drivers. Pastebin /var/log/Xorg.0.log file01:32

phixxorcentHOGG: the only thing is Ubuntu causes it when it tries to suspend. The screen turns off and the power button flashes (does this mean kernel panic?) It won't revive, and I have to hold the power button down to turn it off. That's when the boot problem started. I can boot again by taking the battery out and pressing the power button for 20s. But every time I leave ubuntu on, the same thing...02:02

sebsebseb!reiserfs |  phixxor  usser02:20
ubottuphixxor  usser: reiserfs is a journalling file system, which outperforms many others on I/O operations, but has drawbacks (such as increasing likelihood of data loss, and introducing latency unsuitable for gaming or real-time audio). Using !ext3, the default on Ubuntu, is *highly* recommended. A read-only Windows driver is available at http://p-nand-q.com/download/rfstool.html02:20
sebsebsebjordy240: should have done that to you as well, see above02:20
phixxorsebsebseb: hmm, looks like this is a new development. But if ubottu says it, it must be so02:21

sebsebsebphixxor: by the looks of it that factoid is a bit old, since Ext4 is default in 9.10.  ,but the rest of what it is saying is probably true enough02:21

phixxorjordy240: what have you tried so far?02:23
sebsebsebusser: well with 9.04 for some and since they didn't have a proper kernel and that for Ext402:23
sebsebsebjordy240: Ext4 can be resized02:24
livingdaylightsebsebseb, don't worry i figured it out02:24
sebsebsebjordy240: some how02:24

roger__hello i made a link on my ubuntu desktop for a windows folder....however the link is dead...until i open the HD link from the menu...then the link works..how do i make it so the link always works..02:49
brainy142I'l log in and about 4 out of 5 times it will try to log-in and just go back to the log in screen02:49
brainy142sometimes the screen will show a jarbled mess.02:50
brainy142but when it works it works02:50
brainy142I've tried different window managers, same thing02:50
arghh2d2brainy142: did you upgrade or clean install?02:50
jonznjroger__: how did you make the link the first time around?02:51
brainy142I tried an upgrade, I cancled it and ubuntu messed up, so I did a clean02:51
PhantomLinkNever gonna give you up, never gonna let you down...02:51
jonznjfluid, did anyone answer you?02:51
arghh2d2brainy142: hmmm02:51
brainy142the thing is it works sometimes02:51
fluidjonznj: no sorry02:52
arghh2d2roger__: you probly need to mount the windows partition at boot time by editing /etc/fstab02:52
roger__jonznj, i went to the folder inside the harddrive and Make Link, then i put that link on ubuntu desktop02:52
arghh2d2roger__: sounds like your mounting it from the menu, then the link works02:52
roger__arghh2d2, yes how do i this02:53
sebsebsebTheCheeze: maybe we should have finnished the partition stuff here, so someone else could maybe learn from it02:53
jonznjfluid: are you sitting behind your own router? or is this someone else's?02:53
roger__mount the partitiion02:53
fluidid really like to run synchronet as a non-root user... but when i do noone can connect to it from outside of my network. im behind my own router, this machine is DMZ to the world.02:53
ubottuThe /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions02:53
cdg2hi all.  Is anyone on that can give me some upgrade advice?  I am upgrading from Dapper LTS to Hardy LTS.  The installer appears to have hung close to the end of "installing the upgrades" step.  The problem appears to be related to my openldap install.  My question is what to do now?02:53
joljami am looking for a g++ compiler in ubuntu which I has the function of line by line debugging02:53

fluidim pretty sure that port 22 is open02:53
fluidwhich is sshd02:54
fluidbut synchronet waiting on port 23 does not see incoming cnnections :(02:54
DinkHmm I just got a random pop-up saying my system will shutdown in 60 seconds. I hit cancel. What can cause this? This has happened several times lately.02:54
jonznjare port23 connections forwarded properly to this dmz?02:55
arghh2d2brainy142: could be a gdm problem... what are your error messages like?02:55
jonznjfluid: *from the  router's config, is what I"m refereing to ^02:55
fluidevery incoming connection is set to hit this machine directly. doesnt matter what port it is.02:55
arghh2d2Dink: firefox popup?02:55
brainy142I dont get an error message02:55
arghh2d2brainy142: what about the jarbled stuff when it blanks out?  anything legible?02:56
fluidarghh2d2: i think hes referring to the gnome system shutdown warning02:56
brainy142arghh2d2: It just seems to... reboot x?02:56
jonznjfluid: I ask because ports are usually blocked by default. are you sure there's nothing else listening to that port (on your box) as well?02:56
Dinkarghh2d2, no it kinda looks like when you hit the restart/logout/hibernate but had more options02:56
brainy142just the ubuntu logo in weird tessalatd boxwa02:56
fluidjonznj: nothing at all. i can connect to it locally using localhost:2302:56
brainy142no terminal02:56
fluidi can connect to it from another machine on the lan...02:57
fluidthats what got me thinking firewall02:57
fluidbut if the router has this system listed under its DMZ setting, it should be forwarding anything incoming to this machine.02:57
brainy142arghh2d2: It never happened in 9.0402:57
jonznjfluid: yeah, all out of ideas :( sorry - thought it might be something simple. you could try connecting maybe another machine infront of the firewall, and see if it has trouble02:58
arghh2d2brainy142: i dont know, did it happen right after you installed 9.10 or a little later?02:58
fluidknow what, next time my friend is on to test it out... ill just plug my machine directly into the cable modem and bypass my firewall completely. bet it will work.02:58
jonznjfluid: right, just what I meant02:58
brainy142arghh2d2: right after it was installed02:58

tasif anyone was to think of an icon that would represent an Op or a Voice, what would it be? ( besides an @ or a + )03:53
starhashakav: what bondy said. What I think he means is fix whatever file(s) you're trying to configure at the moment (if any), and then try to learn vim. I would say, just take it slow and learn a few basics (cursor movements, save a file, etc. ) That way, if you need to edit a file on another computer, you can do so .03:53

dandamanhi, i want to have the scroll wheel function working on firefox(like when you press down on it and you move the mouse down itll scroll very fast)04:17
nanotubesieken: system -> preferences -> sessions (if you want it to start when you log in)04:17
dandamanhow do i do?04:17

nanotubedandaman: in firefox, go to "about:config" and turn on autoscroll04:18

emmaGuest: then rename the-sound-you-want.ogg to be desktop-login.ogg04:18
resno_i did an update and now cant boot into linux. its hangs at checking battery. and then basically freezes. this is 9.1004:18
Guestemma: must the sound be in .ogg format?04:18
emmaGuest: and make sure it is in that directory /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo04:18
nanotubedandaman: could also do it through the gui - preferences -> advanced -> general -> autoscroll checkbox04:18
greezmunkeyCan't remember who suggested a few audio utilities, but I DL'd Audacity, and it does just whata I need it to do. THank :)04:19
emmaGuest: that I don't know. I doubt it. But I do think it needs to be short.04:19
Guestemma: on second thought, why does the sounds sometimes NOT play when I log in?04:20
emmaGuest: it might need to be in .ogg so that you can give it that name, it's possible that something is looking for the file with that exact name to run it at startup04:20
emmaGuest: no idea sorry :)04:20

ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about b4304:22

emmaGuest you should maybe also use mplayer or something to listen to those .ogg's so you know for sure which one you want to move or alter.04:23
akavnanotube, This is interesting. The "Find in Files" feature works pretty close to what I had in mind. Also, code folding actually works (it doesn't in TextMate for Python).04:23
greezmunkeymrplow, then it's probably just a matter of grooming you routes. man ip route04:24

jonz__FTP Related: I am having trouble getting a fluid response out of my FTP sessions via command line. but only from this machine (ubuntu 9.04). When I ssh into my school's FreeBSD box and FTP from there outward to the same FTP servers I have no problem. WHat I noticed differntly: it seems that when a transfer (be it `ls` or `get`) it seems its on a peculiar port - like 200 PORT05:04

jonz__hwilde: so I know that when I'm ftping into this server, no matter which client I do it on - it's always on the same mode05:05

xpo0fim got to go now ... see u good people.. im always here for help .. bye05:08
ZehavaZMsame thing I got last time.  It asks for pass then pops up the desktop wall paper and that's it05:08
cauleenhwilde the confusing part only came up becouse with the live cd it reconised it but then after full install it didnt05:08
jonz__hwilde from what I just read online (and the tiny-bit i comprehended) the different modes you choose help determine which ports things transfer on. (and i don't mean changing ascii/binary). so the fact that I notice it usually says like "200 PORT ...." whenever it hangs *has* to be related I'd think05:08
ZehavaZMbut if I move the mouse on the windows machine it moves it here on the ubuntu one05:08
hwildeZehavaZM, download tightvnc viewer05:08

helloFreetards, face facts. You've lost. You've had sixteen years to try and build a desktop operating system, and you still can't get your shit together. Nobody wants your software. It's not Microsoft's fault. It's yours. Because trust me, if you truly developed a kick-ass OS with tens of thousands of drivers and easy installation and reliable performance, you'd be winning. But you're not. Firefox caught on, right? Why? Because it rocked.05:33
helloDesktop Linux, however, is a different story, and in your heart of hearts you know this. It's a bad imitation of Windows and can't even come close to OS X. Want more proof? India rejected the XO machine. Hardly anybody else is placing orders for Negroponte's miracle laptop, despite the low, low price of only one hundred dollars. Now the Chinese don't want Linux. They're not buying into your crazy crusade. Sorry. And you guys are starting to sound l05:33

noirO__o: that's not good. You can try simply deleting everything and making one large partition using gparted and then checking everything with fsck. But maybe you're looking at lower-level tools if you have bad sectors. And a new drive if there's hardware damage... <_<05:50

Also bought a ExpressCard-to-eSATA adapter based on the JMicron JMB26X chipset (apparently Linux-supported). It worked on my old laptop with Hardy (or Intrepid, can't remember) but on my new Vaio, nothing happens. Halp?06:05
noircorrection; that should say JMB36X chipset06:06

vagothcpp<Guy that asked me a question>: I don't know alot about Ubuntu... or linux ftm, sorry06:10
jeffmrmb, I can but was hoping there is an easier way, it's installed by wubi with mac os on another partition06:11

nu-userjongbergs -> you know that you can use the livecd iso stored on a disk and boot to it?06:13
vagothcppI don't think you can change usernames from Users & Groups06:13
greezmunkeyRyan9104, have you looked at this page yet? https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SkypeWebCams06:13
jeffmrmb, I'm running a disk check in windows now and tried to run one in mac os06:13
mb_again_jeffr: waste of time going through the mangled system boot, boot off external media, fsck the filesystems from there, you should then be able to judge if the system is repairable or toast based on the volume of fixes involved. after the fsck runs clean you can retry the boot, hope it was minor damage06:13
nu-userjongbergs -> therefore if you do remaster and then use that same iso to boot while it is stored in your hd06:13
_gedhi, in the "/etc/services" you can see the list of ports that are being used right? how can i UNASSIGN a program or service to that port?06:13

jongbergsnu-user: i've heard aufs supports..06:14

kostkonchelz, ;)08:23
CokeSpixx: I run it on 6 terminals now08:23
gwinbeeSpixx: any idea if tightvnc server will be ok with realvnc viewer?08:23
Spixxgwinbee: what type of server do you use?08:23
CokeProblem is, in the Linux world you have to go with broken or outdated.08:23
BBHossCoke,i must ask why the size limit, with today's storage prices?08:23
Spixxgwinbee: nah sorry :/08:23
CokeSpixx: every upgrade is a nail biter for sure08:23
powertool08sean_: I dunno, sorry08:23
chelzCoke: you can install debian stable and specifically install newer packages from debian testing or debian sid08:23
sean_okay, thanks08:23
CokeBBHoss: I'm making a disk image that can be easily copied to terminals08:23
chelzCoke: sounds like what you want08:24
SpixxCoke: I love arch it is simple fast and allways works :D08:24
CokeBBHoss: and why should I waste my time copying/installing stuff that will never be used?08:24
BBHosshell, get edubuntu and use LTSP08:24
Cokethat's what Windows dudes do08:24
gwinbeeSpixx: like i said, i honestly don't even know what the VNC server is. it is whatever i access by going through system - preferences - remote desktop08:24
Cokechelz: yes. I left Debian like 4 years ago when they went insane with their packaging for real08:24
gwinbeeSpixx: i thought it was vino, but i could easily be wrong.08:24
chelzCoke: if you're taking the time to do something right, then you have the time to customize an install. you basically could make any major distro do what you want.08:24
Cokechelz: they dont follow any standards, their packages looks nothing like upstream and their Python policies are just... woah. Overly complex08:24
nuxisgwinbee: VNC is the opensource protocol to remote control computers, all these apps use VNC protocol08:24
m0j4h3dits just a question .. is there is any one hacker here08:24
nuxism0j4h3d: define a hacker (=08:25
Cokechelz: I want a good start. Already tried Arch, frugal, Debian, Fedora and some else I can't remember08:25
m0j4h3dnot sites08:25
powertool08m0j4h3d: You aren't going to find metasploit help here.08:25
=== slv_j is now known as lorien
Cokechelz: I want NO automagic and NO extra stuff08:25
BBHossthis is going to be good08:25
nuxism0j4h3d: powertool08 is right ^^08:25
Spixxgwinbee: ahh, now I see, perhaps you need to try and use a standalone VNC server because I do not know what type this is :S08:25
m0j4h3ddo i can08:25
gm|lapi'm a real hacker. i make stuff. not break stuff.08:25
BBHossCoke, have you tried LTSP, will it work for your solution08:25
chelzCoke: i suggest looking at the top distros ranked by pageviews on distrowatch.com and take the time to customize them08:25
rloHi... what command do I use to delete the files in a file tree recursively, but leave the directory structure intact? "rm -R" deletes the directories as well - I want to keep the inner directories themselves. TIA08:26
gwinbeeSpixx: fair enough. in fact, i think i recall using tightvnc for this very purpose a long time ago.08:26
chelzBBHoss: he might want each terminal to run on its own, without a server always around08:26
CokeBBHoss: got any url?08:26
m0j4h3di need one who is professional in metasploit08:26
gm|lapnow, can someone sneak onto bantown to see if anyone's bragging about it?08:26
m0j4h3dand write exploits08:26
powertool08m0j4h3d: No idea, but #ubuntu is against tools such as those because most people use them maliciously08:26
nuxism0j4h3d: Then you are not looking for an hacker08:26
BBHossCoke,http://edubuntu.org/UsingEdubuntu look for ltsp08:26
gm|lapm0j4h3d: i define them as "crackers"08:26
m0j4h3dam looking for both08:26
m0j4h3di know that .. crackers ..08:26
gm|lapalthough "script kiddie" is a term i prefer to use08:26
chelzrlo: find /path/to/directory -type f -print0 | xargs -0 rm08:27
CokeBBHoss: that is utter crap and totally not what im looking for. :)08:27
Spixxgwinbee: yeah, I think that would be simpler. Got the feeling that the ubuntu way is for between ubuntu machines only08:27
m0j4h3dbut i need both .. at least one of them08:27
CokeBBHoss: I already run X remote, why would I need that?08:27
syriusSpixx looks like I didn't use the right keywords08:27
nuxism0j4h3d: If you wanna learn metasploit, I think there are various of tutorials to help you with that08:27
gwinbeeSpixx: or realvnc is just a PITA :) thanks though, i'm off.08:27
Spixxsyrius: np does it work now?08:27
m0j4h3di know every thing in metasploit08:27
alkali147installed ubuntu 8.04 on openvz08:27
BBHossbasically its ubuntu with everything running on the server08:27
chelzCoke: by definition, creating a package for a distro is 'modifying' it. so if you really want something that isn't touched, it sounds like slackware is your thing.08:27
m0j4h3dbut i have a little question08:27
BBHossm0j4h3d, GTFO08:27
alkali147now there is no resolv.conf08:27
m0j4h3dok ..08:27
Spixxgwinbee: np have fun08:27
alkali147help please :S08:27
syriusdunno Spixx will let you know when I try it out08:27
CokeBBHoss: yeah, that's the sales pitch for morons, I'm a programmer so I know how operating systems work08:28
Spixxsyrius: nice :D08:28
chelzCoke: although the less popular a distro is, that means fewer people are working on it and the longer it takes for security patches to come out08:28
Cokechelz: I know.08:28
Cokechelz: it's a bummer08:28
m0j4h3dany way thank to all of you .. thats my email .. :     hacker_mjdl_w3d@Hotmail.com    ...08:28
chelzCoke: cest la vie. do what you can.08:28
nuxisalkali147: Whats you problem?08:28
BBHossCoke, well then you also know you can google "LTSP" for for info08:28
Cokechelz: but Ubuntu is definately not what I'm looking for.08:28
rlochelz: Thank you! That works, and is totally unintuitive! ;) But worthy of study. Thanks again.08:28
powertool08m0j4h3d: spend some time on google looking for metasploit support and you'll find a channel soon enough08:28
CokeBBHoss: I'm not interrested in terminal services08:28
alkali147installed ubuntu on openvz, now there is no resol.conf file08:28
q0_0pubuntu is not up to date on kernels i believe?08:28
BBHossCoke, so you tried Arch linux?08:28
CokeBBHoss: X already comes with a nice remote usage08:28
CokeBBHoss: indeed.08:28
chelzCoke: LTS might work. it's really easy to make your own custom installs. with the whole 'in the cloud' JeOS stuff especially.08:29
Cokeand it works very smooth, the best distro I have ever used for sure08:29
m0j4h3dok powertool .. thank you . . .08:29
dAnonwhat the hell is that 94mb txt file someone wants to send me in priv?08:29
chelzdAnon: malware, ignore it08:29
BBHossCoke, well, if of course starts out pretty small, you could start from there08:29
CokeBBHoss: problem with arch is rolling releases which require FULL upgrades, not nice in a work environment08:29
m0j4h3dohh..if some one know how do i let my microphone works in back track 4 .. tell me .. and back track is on ubuntu kernal08:29
CokeBBHoss & chelz you've been great help guys08:30
SpixxCoke: it is not for production env's for that you run redhat/debian or similar08:30
Cokechelz: basically, from what I've heard so far Ubuntu is absolutely out of the question08:30
chelzCoke: i'd recommend trying a customized ubuntu LTS, then if not either centos or scientific linux, then slax, puppy, and dsl08:30
CokeSpixx: yeh, I'm thinking of switching to debian on the server08:30
chelzCoke: you can really make any distro work if you are as informed as you say you are08:30
gm|lapi actually run freebsd as a desktop08:30
Cokechelz: well, first up. Ubuntu will take time and space to setup an environment I avbsolutely hate08:31
gm|lapnetbsd is quite good if you're limited for memory or you'd normally use lots08:31
Cokechelz: I don't want Gnome or KDE or any of that crap. I don't use HAL.08:31
Cokechelz: I hate automagic, I tell the computer what to do, not vice versa08:31
q0_0pCoke, what do u use then if u dont use gnome or kde08:31
Cokeq0_0p: compiz08:31
q0_0pCoke, O_O08:31
SpixxCoke: it works really nice thats for sure08:31
gm|lapCoke: as long as you don't do any 3D stuff, and you don't need wireless, and you know what you're doing, then netbsd is a good choice08:31
q0_0pCoke, u can run compiz on gnome and kde08:32
r_a_fCoke:you can use awesome wm instead of gnome/kde/xfce08:32
chelzCoke: at least with a distro like ubuntu, everything is out in the open. you can add/remove things as you want. but yeah if you don't want to customize then another distro is the answer.08:32
Cokegm|lap: mm. i thought about that. but how much time would it take me, it's been like a decade since my last visit on BSD08:32
q0_0pCoke, i dont understand u08:32
gm|lapCoke: man afterboot08:32
Coker_a_f: I dont want awesome08:32
CokeI want compiz08:32
chelzthe activity in the BSD and linux world is night and day08:32
gm|lapright, if you're looking for 3d and you want a bsd, then freebsd is probably a better bet08:32
r_a_fCoke: you are joking now08:32
q0_0pr_a_f, i think he's joking08:33
Cokeq0_0p: but WHY should I waste time, space, CPU and possible bugs, increase the complexity and decrease maintainability for what? I dont need gnome or kde08:33
q0_0pCoke, then u dont need compiz?08:33
Coker_a_f: no. I don't want awesome, I want compiz.08:33
Cokeq0_0p: yes I do.08:33
Cokeq0_0p: compiz is what I want.08:33
dAnonCoke use terminal xD08:33
Spixxq0_0p: No you don't need compiz! compiz is evul08:33
Cokeq0_0p: compiz is what I'm using, it's the best WM for my intensions.08:33
r_a_fCoke: 500mb for system & compiz - man.......08:33
q0_0pi know compiz is evil08:33
Coker_a_f: have it right here, chatting from it right now08:34
Coker_a_f: well, actually, now it's up to like 800M08:34
jodi123I recently installed kde 4.3.2 for ubuntu, it looks great but I can't find an application that lets me browse wireless access points and connect, like in gnome08:34
Coker_a_f: but this is my work computer, it will be littered with crap in about a year08:34
q0_0pCoke is saying that he runs compiz on neither gnome or kde08:34
q0_0pwhich doesn't make sense08:34
kostkonq0_0p, indeed08:34
Cokeq0_0p: that's because youre a noob08:34
gm|lapif icewm worked with compiz, i'd use compiz more often08:34
soreauq0_0p: What's the problem? All's compiz needs to run is an X session, not a DE08:34
Cokegm|lap: icewm is a WM, so is compiz, they dont work together08:35
Cokegm|lap: you have either or08:35
Cokecan'thave two window managers at once08:35
soreauCoke is actually correct08:35
chelzjodi123: install and use network manager, like you did in gnome08:35
Cokecompiz is a WM AND a composite manager for X08:35
q0_0psoreau, so ur saying i can run compiz with conjuction with fluxbox?08:35
r_a_fCoke: so its no problem for you to configure ubuntu08:36
Cokeq0_0p: NO08:36
chelzCoke: so what's with your aversion to setting up a distro the way you want? i mean ubuntu would take a lot of configuring but you get the bonus of *fast* security updates08:36
Cokeq0_0p: why is it so hard for you guys to understand what a window manager is?08:36
soreauq0_0p: No. fluxbox is a WM. compiz is a WM. You can only run one WM per X session08:36
chu_My browser has stopped working for some reason08:36
chelzgood luck trying to get security updates through slax08:36
Cokechelz: debian does the same, but without all the required automagic08:36
syriusdoesn't work Spixx08:36
Spixxsyrius: what errors do you get?08:36
q0_0psoreau, not true08:36
q0_0pu can run multiple WM in an xsession08:36
Spixxsyrius: paste them on pastebin :D08:36
jodi123chelz: what is the name of the package?08:36
q0_0pi can run a kde and gnome at the same time08:36
syriusthere is no jar file in the jar archive08:37
q0_0pand a fluxbox08:37
Cokeq0_0p: they are DESKTOP ENVIRONMENTS08:37
llutzq0_0p: wrong08:37
Cokeq0_0p: and fluxbox is the WM08:37
q0_0pmy bad08:37
Cokellutz: no, he's absolutely right08:37
chu_Very weird, maybe have to do a full reboot08:37
apersoneveryone: /ignore *!*@* DCC08:37
chu_Be back soon08:37
soreauq0_0p: I will not argue with you. You can only run one WM in an X session. Period.08:37
q0_0paight cool08:37
switchgirl1is anyone using lucid lynx yet?08:37
llutzCoke: if talking about WMs, gnome/kde means metacity/kwin, so he's wrong08:37
Cokellutz: no08:37
Cokellutz: metacity is the window manager08:37
llutzCoke: if talking abount DE, hes right08:37
SpixxRT Aperson everyone: /ignore *!*@* DCC08:37
om26erswitchgirl1: #ubuntu+1 and yes08:37
Cokellutz: gnome is the desktop environment08:37
Cokellutz: if he wanted to talk about the window manager he'd write metacity or kwin.08:38
switchgirl1om26er: how is it08:38
llutzCoke: i doubt those guys see the difference08:38
om26erswitchgirl1: at the moment its just fullyupdated karmic08:38
soreauThe confusing thing is the distinguishing between DE and WM08:38
Cokellutz: perhaps.08:38
Cokellutz: but that is very Ubuntu08:38
llutzCoke: nope, that's  linux-users nowadays08:38
Cokellutz: I've made sure google filters out all answers in Ubuntu forums because they seem unmoderated.08:39
pacman69anyone worked out how to install 9.10 with grub1?08:39
chelzpacman69: install it normally then do a grub-install from grub108:39
Cokellutz: and the only place where you can find changes in .Xmodmap to fix ALSA problems08:39
switchgirl1pacman69: synaptic enables you to downgrade grub no?08:39
r_a_fCoke: you can configure your installation with soft you need with ubuntu, so no prob08:39
syriusSpixx http://pastebin.ca/raw/167614108:40

chelzpacman69: np, gl08:40
Coker_a_f: jigdo?08:40
Spixxsyrius: have you tried with another jar file?08:40
r_a_fCoke: its for debian08:40
SpixxIt might be that it is a error In the Jar itself08:40
=== jimmy_ is now known as _zidane
Coker_a_f: but its like it?08:40
syriusyou mean the other jar files on that site?08:40
Spixxsyrius: yes, how did you install java?08:41
llutzCoke: all those cool "i-hate-win" users...08:41
r_a_fCoke: there is a program you can configure your own installation of ubu08:41
Cokellutz: who are those?08:41
SpixxIm at work, I wont go there :P08:41
Coker_a_f: yeh, I've been trying to find it in the download section08:41
syriuswhy not Spixx ?08:41
pacman69you guys must be 'all over it' cuz I saw the grub menu.lst was a quite different - it uses a config file that is more 'involved'08:41
syriusit is russian site08:41
Coker_a_f: if I can cut away HAL, the DE's, pulseaudio and all that crap in the install it will work nicely for me08:42
Spixxsyrius: exactly :p08:42
llutzCoke: read here, read forums, even in usenet, everywhere08:42
chelzSpixx: it seems to be a russian forum with a java applet for a game or something08:42
chelzSpixx: i'm guessing it directed him to sun08:42
Spixxsyrius: but it might be a problem with you missing parts of the java support, how did you install it?08:42
Spixxchelz: thx08:42
CokeAnyway, great props to the community, I'd like to see a mac or windows user pop in 10 minutes on a chat and get the same massive response.08:43
CokeShit, they couldn't even get this informed from 1 hour with the official support.08:43
syriusdon't remember Spixx08:43
chelzCoke: ubuntu is the point of the spearhead of Linux on the Desktop ;)08:43
Cokechelz: yet it sucks tremendously IMO :)08:43
Spixxsyrius: goto java.com and download the install file!08:43
Spixxsyrius: reinstall and try again08:44
Cokechelz: the defaults that is08:44
chelzSpixx: sun jre is in the repos08:44
syriuswhy not from repo Spixx ?08:44
chelzhe should uninstall w/e he installed and install from the repos08:44
syriuswhich java should I install?08:44
chelzsyrius: do you still have the file you used to install that java?08:44
Cokechelz: if I wanted a bloated, overly complex system I'd go with OSX08:44
Cokebut I'm gonna look up with that custom installer thingie08:44
chelzCoke: yeah yeah yeah, i GET that ubuntu isn't for you. but but mom n pops it is.08:44
chu_Trying to write a bash script to run a few commands (like copy my fstab, sources.list, and output sudo dpkg --get-selections etc), but it's not letting me create variables... What am I doing wrong?08:44
Spixxsyrius: then use the repos, I allways get it from source when I can but it is fully up to you :D08:44
Cokechelz: my mom used slackware08:44
chelzchu_: pastebin08:45
chelzCoke: and who set it up?08:45
SpixxCoke: haha :P I agree08:45
Cokechelz: I did. but once it was setup it worked for 5 years without one single problem08:45
syriusit is a game for sony ericsson Spixx put there is one for on pc that is the one I downloaded Spixx08:45
syriusI want to play the game with some russian buddies08:45
chelzCoke: i'd bet you'd have the same experience with an ubuntu LTS.08:46
syriusI don't have sony ericsson08:46
Cokechelz: but I'd rather spend ONE hour setting it up than TEN hours trying to figure out if there's a bug in one of the GAZILLION HAL scripts or if Xorg has added yet another "feature" to disable ctrl+alt+backspace08:46
kostkonCoke, sorry about this, but:08:46
kostkon!ot | Coke08:46
Cokechelz: no. because then they'd have to use gnome or kde which both suck ass, are so complex that you HAVE to be a programmer to understand their fundamentals08:46

kostkonCoke, anyway, hal is becoming obsolete.08:46
chelzsyrius: did you ever go to sun.com?08:46
Spixxsyrius: well it should be fairly simple but the errors that came out of this was to few :P it looks like it was a error stemming from you not having full java support08:47
Cokekostkon: really?08:47
syriusI think I installed java from the rescricted extras package Spixx08:47
chelzhal was replaced in 9.10 iirc08:47
chu_chelz, http://pastebin.com/m41983dc408:47
Cokekostkon: finally. :)08:47
soreauCoke: Really. You are right but you've overstepped the boundary now.08:47
kostkonCoke, yeap. now we have devicekit08:47
Spixxsyrius: then it shouldnt be any problems :P08:47
soreauCoke: Take it to #ubuntu-offtopic08:47
Spixxbut I still recommend that you try and install the package from java.com08:48
Spixxbut I'm not sure :P08:48

chelzsilidan: you probably don't have the required permissions to interact with it. whenever you have this "cannot write" issue run "chmod `whoami`:`whoami` -R /media/thevolume"08:54
ubottuThis is not a file sharing channel (or network). If you're looking for information about me, type « /msg ubottu !bot »08:54

silidancheiz: why doesnt ubuntu fix the basc functionality, but instead concetrates on just looking nice...08:57
chelzsilidan: that's actually a pretty core issue that all linux distros share. it goes beyond what ubuntu's focus is atm. fat32 and ntfs work for pretty much all use cases for removable media so there's not really an incentive.08:57
silidanok fill reformat to fat32 then08:58
frittmannHi all08:58
llutzchelz: ntfs works only with ntfs-3g for users08:58
silidancheiz: thanks08:58
syriusSpixx where should I cd to? To install java...08:58
syriuswhat directory would that be on ubuntu08:58
=== crunchbang is now known as Guest80125
Spixxhmm most often Desktop08:58
Spixxbut it depends on where you dled java to :S08:59
chelzllutz: yes but Linux / OS X / Windows all at least support reading it, which can't be said for any other FS than fat32, and someone would probably be using ntfs over fat32 if fat32 didn't work for some reason.08:59
frittmannis there anyone here running Karmic on VirtualBox?08:59
Mintalmw mw08:59
Mintalme me08:59
freaky[t]the 2 gnome panels dont look good in ubuntu :( i dont like it :( i also dont want docks - is there any panel alternative or a way i can make the panels look cool or smth.?08:59
llutzchelz: fat32 isn't bad for removeable media, if you can live with its limitations08:59
chelzfreaky[t]: you could look into Gnome Do. or different ways to theme gnome. fedora comes out with a lot of neat themes.09:00
chelzllutz: agreed09:00
Guest80125hey, i just disabled autologin on my crunchbang linux pc, and now i everytime i restart i just see "Authorization failed", anyone know whats wrong?09:00
frittmannMintal, you have Karmic installed as a VM?09:00
freaky[t]chelz, gnome do also has docky which is also a dock panel09:00
Mintalspmething with the authorization ?09:00
anom01yanyone know how to change the log in manager theme for ubuntu 9.10 ?09:00
freaky[t]in xubuntu the panels look better09:00
bazhangGuest80125, #crunchbang for support09:00
stevoi have ubuntu 8.04 and a fairly old ati vision teck with video out, the video out works up to the login screen, how do i get it to work after loging in?09:00
Guest80125okay thanks09:00
chelzanom01y: the login manager is called "GDM" and you can find themes for it at gnome-looks. google will get you there.09:01
anom01yI have to many window managers installed and the default is gone, Im stuck with a basic xfce looking theme09:01
anom01ythanks chelz09:01
freaky[t]ill go take a shower now bbl09:01
* om26er says new gdm don't support theming09:01
frittmannMintal, do you happen to know how to get it to allow 1024x768 resolution?09:01
chelzoh, that's news to me09:01
cwilluwell, it supports theming, there's just no fancy ui and large list of themes09:01
chelzanom01y: might have to track down some tutorials on theming the latest version apparently09:01
llutzanom01y: 9.10 uses gdm2, no themes, no config, ...09:02
mocolocofreaky[t]: you could make the panels transparent09:02
chelzstevo: you could try loading a livecd of a more recent ubuntu version to see if the problem has been fixed. you can upgrade then if a later version works.09:02
mircoOdo, sono qui09:03
chelzheh the user amount is "1337"09:03
chelzaww just missed it09:03
ubottuVai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (click col tasto destro sul nome del canale per entrare)09:03
anom01yllutz, chelz , weird cause just after I upgraded It had a theme that looked really cool09:03

napsterHey. How to stop karmic from asking passwords when mounting ntfs partitions...?09:03
anom01ybut after my second reboot it dissapeared (something I did maybe ?)09:03
Odo!it | mirco09:03
banisterfiendhey guys my screen is stuck in what looks like 320x200 mode, it happened when i tried to play a game in fullscreen that since crashed09:03
ubottumirco: please see above09:03
aseko00how can i add a desktop icon in ubu netbook rmx 9.10?09:03
stevothanks chelz09:03
banisterfiendhow do i fix it? (without restarting or logging out:D)09:03
chelzstevo: i hope that works09:03
bigmack83__using gedit, im writing java code. with the plugins enabled there is a panel for shell output. is there a way to get the java code im wrinting to output into that shell output area?09:04
mocolocoanom01y: the login manager for 9.10 is a newer version of GMD, and there's not yet an easy way to change it's look :(  hopefully that will change for the next release09:04
frittmannanybody else know how to get Karmic to accept 1024x768 resolution? I tried "gksudo displayconfig-gtk" but it doesn't seem to work in Karmic.09:04
chu_Why do I need su to cp my sources.list?09:04
cwillufrittmann, what video chipset?09:04
banisterfiendhow the f*ck do i fix my messed up resolution?09:04
frittmanncwillu: I'm using VirtualBox, so it is not a physical video card.09:05
llutzchu_: because apt-configs are owned by root09:05
chelzbanisterfiend: does rebooting not fix the issue?09:05
chelzbanisterfiend: oh..09:05
chelzbanisterfiend: if you can get to the resolution options in System then you could try doing it from there09:06
syriusSpixx doesn't work09:06
banisterfiendchelz: you are now my girlfriend. It worked. :D09:07
syriuswhat should I do?09:07
mocolocobanisterfiend: gnome-display-properties09:07
cwillufrittmann, install the guest utilities09:07
chelzanom01y: http://www.ubuntumini.com/2009/09/hack-karmics-gdm-login-screen.html - this should allow you to theme things09:07
frittmanncwillu, thanks, should have thought of that!09:07
mocolocofrom terminal or ALT+F209:07
chu_Well, I just did it with sudo, so it asks for a password, but it's only copying, and I just copied a file from /etc/ (fstab) without su...09:07
napsterHey. How to stop karmic from asking passwords when mounting ntfs partitions...?09:07
chelzbanisterfiend: gj. keep using ubuntu and tell your friends/family. :)09:07
chu_Now to write a restore-script though09:07
banisterfiendchelz: ill tell them about my new gf too.09:07
banisterfiendchelz: ;)09:07
chelzch_: you need the proper permissions to write to system areas, but not to read from them, because there's less of a chance of breaking a system by just copying something out, rather than in09:08

aseko00frittmann: german?09:09
aseko00frittman: u have to use vboxmanage with additional params,,very easy to use09:09
zetherooI guess today it's my turn to have issues with Ubuntu :)09:10
aseko00 how can i add a desktop icon in ubu netbook rmx 9.10?09:10
chelzbigmack83__: eventually getting into using Eclipse might be good, if you plan to be writing java code for a while09:10
zetherooI had two SATA hdd's in my desktop and needed to remove one ... now grub loads and sees all entries but Ubuntu will not boot09:11
zetherooI get to Initramfs09:11
chelzbigmack83__: you could navigate to the place you are saving your java code and interact with it like you would interact with any file through a terminal also09:11
chu_That's what I thought chelz, it's just a backup script which copies fstab and sources.list to my /home/Backup folder (different partition), but it needs su privs to cp /etc/apt/sources.list ~/Backup/sources.list09:11
bigmack83__chelz, yea i have eclipse setup for java already. but the book im reading for school recommends doing it by normal text editor first to learn to not make mistakes that a IDE autofixes for you09:11
zetherooabove it says "Gave up waiting for root device"09:12
frittmannasekoo: germanic-hungarian, but I was raised in New Zealand.09:12
ubottuTo reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »09:12
U-b-u-n-t-uis there a way to turn off dcc in xchat09:12
bigmack83__chelz, yea true09:12
zetherooand a little below it says "ALERT! /dev/sdb4 does nto exist."09:12
WelshDragonchu_, what's the output of ls -l /etc/apt/sources.list09:12
zetherooanyone know how I can repair this?09:12
tsimpsonU-b-u-n-t-u: /ignore *!*@* DCC09:12
cwilluzetheroo, was it a raid?09:12
llutzzetheroo: you removed sdb but want to use a OS on it?09:13
chu_WelshDragon: -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2592 2009-11-14 16:54 /etc/apt/sources.list09:13
zetheroocwillu: nope09:13
cwilluzetheroo, you removed the disk that has the os installed on it then09:13
zetheroollutz: I did not remove the drive that Ubuntu is installed09:13
silidani formated an usb stick to fat32, then i mounted it copied my stuff on it. i unplugged it, i plugged it in again, files show up, but i dont have write acces!!! WTF IS WRONG???09:13
zetheroocwillu: No I didn't09:13
chromicanyone know why usplash might disappear and comes back twice during boot?09:13
cwilluzetheroo, yes, you did :p09:13
chromicon karmic09:13
llutzzetheroo: then sdb bacame sda now, change grub/fstab to use UUIDs09:13
zetheroocwillu: I removed the secondary drive09:13
WelshDragonchu_, Hrm, permissions on the file are fine. If ~/Backup/sources.list is owned by root, then you'll need root permissions to overwrite it, when you backup. Perhaps that's the problem?09:14
zetheroollutz: how?09:14
cwilluzetheroo, the error says it can't access the drive the os is isntalled on09:14
U-b-u-n-t-uanyone else get this in here dRUl863A4kShXq56 has offered BOUNCEATTACK.TXT (100000000 bytes)09:14
U-b-u-n-t-uor just me?09:14
zetheroollutz: what is UUID's?09:14
chu_Ahh, that's definitely more likely.09:14
chelzbigmack83__: personally i'd recommend using the normal system terminal rather than one that's inside gedit, just in terms of getting used to ubuntu tools09:14
zetheroocwillu: yes ... does not mean I removed it :)09:14
cwilluzetheroo, or your fstab is screwed up and referring to physical device names instead of uuids09:14
chu_Nah, I was getting it earlier U-b-u-n-t-u09:14
chelzchu_: that's all part of the permissions on a file that you can see by doing "ls -l" on any file09:14
llutzzetheroo: use a live-cd, "ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid" shows you your UUIDs09:15
zetheroocwillu: sounds more like it09:15
U-b-u-n-t-uchu and ignoring dcc's will solve it?09:15
zetheroollutz: ok booting from live CD09:15
chelznapster: i'm trying to find an answer, since i would like to know how to do that too, seems difficult09:15
q0_0por u can use blkid09:15
silidanhey this drives me really crazy, ubuntu 9.10 usb stick no write support (fat32) after unplug and plug in again, how come? any help?09:15
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ubuntuone09:15
chromicusplash shows, flips to console messages, flips back to usplash, again to console, back to usplash, now x login. What might make this happen?09:15
chelzU-b-u-n-t-u: we all got it. that's how to fix it.09:15
cwilluzetheroo, sorry, I generally assume that people didn't shoot themselves in the foot, which is a habit I should break :p09:15
q0_0pzetheroo, blkid09:15
napsterchelz: :) lol09:15
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about ubuntu-one09:15
zetherooq0_0p: ?09:15
powertool08Anyone know how to make a wireshark capture filter to catch DNS packets only?09:16
zetheroocwillu: no worries :)09:16
ununthow to format 4gb usb flash drive in ubuntu?09:16
llutzpowertool08: filter port 5309:16
chelzsilidan: now that is really strange. is it being automounted?09:16
chu_w00t, WelshDragon, that was it exactly, cheers man :)09:16
chelzununt: you need Partition Editor installed, it can do it09:16
silidanchelz: yep09:16
WelshDragonchu_, You're welcome :)09:16
chelzllutz: the "blkid" tool also shows UUIDs09:17
freaky[t]is there anything better than tomboy notes for ubuntu?09:17
powertool08llutz: is that the exact syntax? I tried 'port 53' for the filter string and it said wrong syntax.09:17
llutzchelz: i know09:17
chelzfreaky[t]: i personally use Zim Desktop Wiki, but that's me09:17
llutzpowertool08: no, use wireshark docu09:17
ununtchelz how to check the assigned device of my usb flash drive, what command should i enter?09:17
chelzllutz: i prefer blkid since it says the drive/partition it's associated to09:17
freaky[t]chelz, hm ok thank you09:17
chelzununt: "mount" (without quotes)09:17
powertool08llutz: I did... and it gave me a syntax error. Are DNS packets udp only? or tcp & upd?09:18
chelzfreaky[t]: there are many note organizing programs out there though09:18
mocolocofreaky[t]: nope :P, really though what features do you want?  look at "getting things gnome"09:18
chelzsilidan: would you mind pastebining the output of "mount" without quotes?09:18
brunoscunhagood morning09:18
llutzpowertool08: "port 53" should work09:18
zetheroollutz: ok I ran that command and got the list09:18
powertool08llutz: Its not working for me :(09:19
brunoscunhaSince I installed karmic, it does not recognize my laptops cd/dvd drive09:19
brunoscunhawhat can I do?09:19
skarhow do i increase laptop's lcd screen brightness from the cmd line?09:19
freaky[t]mocoloco, ok thank you im installing it right now09:19
powertool08llutz: I created a new filter, the filter name is DNS only and the filter string is port 53.09:19
ununtchelz but my usb drive did not show up using mount command09:19
zetheroollutz: ah and its sda4 now ... not sdb4 .... should I change that? ... Can I chnage that?09:19
llutzchelz: "ls -l /dev/disk/by-uuid" does it too. blkid needs "blkid -g" from time to time, so i decided to use ls09:19
chelzllutz: ah09:20
AdvoWorkive just put a USB card reader into my pc, with a SD card, how do I know what that is, either dev/sda or dev/sdd? cheers09:20
vagothcppWere can I get XVid codec for linuc? Does anybody know09:20
silidanchelz: http://pastebin.com/d7c54c4b309:20
powertool08llutz: When I try to start the capture, wireshark says the string looks like a valid display filter, but isn't a valid capture filter.09:20
llutzchelz: many ways for one task, you have the choice :)09:20
Spixxquick question: LDAP == Active Directory done right?09:20
nic1how can i install alsa driver on ubuntu?09:20
vagothcppSpixx, LDAP is not Active Directly iirc09:21
cwilluSpixx, active directory is a ldap inspired thing09:21
silidannic1: normaly thats done by installing alsa i think09:21
chelzAdvoWork: "mount" (without quotes) in a terminal09:21
cwilluSpixx, it's almost ldap, basically :p09:21
ununtchelz but my usb drive did not show up using mount command09:21
freaky[t]mocoloco, is there any applet for gtg? for the panels oO09:21
Spixxahh kthx, can one sync an LDAP against an AD?09:21
chelzununt: have you tried unplugging and plugging it back in?09:21
nic1silidan: how can i check if i have alsa driver or not? audio does not work on my machine09:22
mocolocovagothcpp: apt-get install libxvidcore409:22
AdvoWorkchelz, ok, what would that do?09:22
llutzzetheroo: you need to fix your  /etc/fstab-entry. use a live cd09:22
chelzAdvoWork: it would list all mounted stuff09:22
zetheroollutz: I am in my live cd session09:22
kostkonnic1, what "aplay -l" gives you?09:22
AdvoWorkchelz, that did it, thankyou09:22
chelzAdvoWork: cheers :)09:22
zetheroollutz: I did the command you told me to do and get the reply09:22
vagothcppmocoloco, Thanks bro09:22
silidannic1: audio not working can simply mean volume turned off in the mixer, you can see if alsa is installed by simply looking into synaptic09:23
brunoscunhawhat can I do to make karmic recognize a cd/dvd drive on a HP/Compaq 6910p?09:23
mocolocofreaky[t]: no panel applet yet, it's in the works09:23
zetheroollutz: by the way, grub is trying to boot to sdb4 and its now sda4 ... do you know how I can change that?09:23
llutzzetheroo: mount your ubuntu-partition to /mnt, "sudo nano /mtn/etc/fstab" and change the /-entry to the UUID of /dev/sda409:23
freaky[t]mocoloco, ah ok thanks ;D09:23
silidannic1: also often there is a switch in the mixer to use either4 digital output or analog, so you may try it there..09:23
zetheroollutz: I already have it mounted09:23
llutzzetheroo: mount your ubuntu-partition to /mnt, "sudo nano /mtn/boot/grub/menu.lst" and change the root-entry to the UUID of /dev/sda409:24
ununtchelz yes but the output are the same with or without the usb flash drive09:24
chelzsilidan: when you view your usb disk in nautilus, and say right click and try to create a new folder, what happens?09:24
llutzzetheroo: if not using grub209:24
zetheroollutz: well this is Karmic .. so its grub209:24
chelzununt: have you tried multiple usb ports?09:24
llutzzetheroo: if you use grub2: no clue how to change anything there09:24
freaky[t]mocoloco, how do i display tasks i have marked as done?09:24
silidanchelz: i cant its greyed out09:24
zetheroollutz: ok thanks09:24
zetherooanyone know how to edit grub2?09:24
chelzsilidan: is there any kind of write protect toggle on the drive itself?09:25
llutzzetheroo: update-grub maybe to scan for changes (just a guess)09:25
nic1kostkon: aplay -l says card 0: Interl [HDA Intel], device 0:ALC268 Analog, subdevices.....09:25
ununtchelz yes same output result09:25
silidanchelz:where shall i look ? rights for /dev/sdb?09:25
chelzsilidan: i mean on the physical usb stick09:25
nic1silidan: where do i see that analog/digital output?09:25
chelzununt: nothing appears on your desktop? no new icons?09:26
kostkonnic1, ok. eh, what ubutnu ver do you have?09:26
ununtchelz maybe i need to use gparted instead?09:26
nic1kostkon: 9.0409:26
ununtchelz exactly09:26
chelzununt: sure, having gparted open could help09:26
ununtok bbl09:26
chelzununt: verifying that the drive works with another machine would also help09:26
kostkonnic1, ok. eh, you should check your volume levels then.09:26
laurynas_hi, how can I ' and " in bash alias?09:26
silidannic1: in youre audio settings i think... but i realize now... i cant find the mixer app in ubbuntu 9.10 anymore...09:26
mocolocofreaky[t]: view > closed tasks pane.  you have to expand it from the bottom09:26
kostkonnic1, right click on the speaker in your tray09:27
freaky[t]mocoloco, ah ok lol thanks09:27
nic1kostkon: i am in text mode for debugging purpose for a problem..can you tell me the command instead of icons?09:27
silidanchez: no no such thing on the usb stick itself09:27
kostkonnic1, right away ;) give: alsamixer09:28
frittmanncwillu: I stuffed up the Linux Guest Additions install for VirtualBox. I installed it before installing dkms, now it is not working at all. Any way to undo this?09:28
chelznapster: still there?09:28
nic1kostkon: all are high in alsamixer09:28
kostkonnic1, sure?09:28
nic1kostkon: yes sure.09:28
chelzsilidan: is there any read/write protect toggle or switch on the physical usb device itself?09:29
cwillufrittmann, boot from a livecd image and fix the root image from there, or any of the usual ways of fixing a broken install09:29
silidanchelz no there isnt09:29
frittmanncwillu: thanks! :)09:29
kostkonnic1, try pressing F409:29
cwillufrittmann, I'd expect the recovery boot to still work though09:29
llutzsilidan: are you member of group "plugdev"?09:30
nic1kostkon: in F4 press, front mic and one capture are high, other capture is low09:30
kostkonnic1, also try pressing your right arrow key09:30
Spixxsilidan: sudo usermod -a -G plugdev `whoami`09:31
nic1i increased that to high09:31
silidanllutz: yes i am member of plugdev09:31
kostkonnic1, to scroll through the volume levels09:31
kostkonnic1, you may see more levels appearing09:31
Spixxsilidan: nvm my comment then09:31
chelzsilidan: this is a longshot, but it might work. in GParted go to the drive, then go to Devuce at the top and click on "Create Partition Table"09:31
alazyworkaholicI'm installing xubuntu. Where in the filesystem does firefox do most of it's internal work when running? ( /usr ; /home ?) It's horribly slow when I installed to a lousy mlc ssd so I want the files it works with on a faster sd card.09:31
nic1kostkon: input so is there, but not able to increase level in that09:31
kostkonnic1, ok. make sure that nothing is muted09:32
U-b-u-n-t-ufor anyone that doesnt already know if you got hit by the dcc sends /umode +C and /umode +E will help along with /ignore *!*@* DCC ctcp09:32
kostkonnic1, i mean the "mute" option is not checked09:32
apersonwow, beware, we may have some flooding in here09:32
aperson##linux just got it bad09:32
chelzalazyworkaholic: ~/.mozilla but i suggest installing something like "preload" before relying on an SD for speed incrases09:32
kostkonnic1, oh, my bad!09:32
nic1kostkon: what happened?09:32
kostkonnic1, sorry. i always forget about ut09:32
chelzaperson: the bots in here are pretty capapble09:32
nic1kostkon: ut??09:33
apersonchelz, I know, just warning09:33
kostkonnic1, i suppose you are now seeing the software volumes provided by palse09:33
apersonchelz, are you in ##linux ?  holy crap09:33
nic1kostkon: palse?09:33
kostkonnic1, sorry. exits alsamixer and now run it like this:  alsamixer -Dhw09:33
kostkonnic1, pulse → pulseaudio09:33
nic1hey alsamixer and pulse are diff right?09:34
apersonthey just had 65 bots in there09:34
apersonbut yeah... I'm not helping, so I'll be quite now :)09:34
kostkonnic1, yeah. don't worry abou the deatils now. run it like this to access yourt hardware voluems:  alsamixer -Dhw09:35
nic1alsamixer -Dhw just gives me the page like alsamixer gave09:35
brunoscunhaafter a fresh install of karmic from a usb pen, karmic does not recognize my dc/dvd drive. Is there a way to force karmic to recognize the dc/dvd drive?09:35
kostkonnic1, ah ok then09:36
=== Sam__ is now known as whater
kostkonnic1, alright. you are in debug mode or something?09:36
kostkonnic1, then pulse is not running. ok09:36
alazyworkaholicchelz: /home eh? That's a problem. the sd card is only 2GB. The (horribly pathetically slow) ssd is 16 GB. It's not possible to boot off the sd directly. I want /boot on the ssd, /home on the ssd, the rest on the sd, & the tricky part is I also want ~/.mozilla on the sd drive, but that's not an option during install. Any idea how I might accomplish that?09:37

chelzalazyworkaholic: install like normal, then, with firefox closed, do "mv ~/.mozilla /media/sdcardname/ && ln -s /media/sdcardname/.mozilla ~/.mozilla" (without the quotes)09:38
cichlasomais there a shortcut to shut down X?09:38
frittmanncwillu: thanks for the advice, it didn't find any errors on the disk, and is still not working. I think I'll just reinstall the OS.09:38
chelzalazyworkaholic: that moves it to the card and makes a link to it on the card09:39
kostkonnic1, hmm09:39
alazyworkaholicchelz: Cool, thank you!09:39
nic1and when i try a playing a .wav file online, when i try playing that it give mpeg1 decoder not found error09:39
cwillufrittmann, there's no automatic fixer, you were supposed to boot from the live image and chroot into the root and fix things :p09:39
chelzalazyworkaholic: gl :)09:39
kostkonnic1, that seems to be a codec problem09:39
chelzbrijith: i'm pretty sure nothing has changed. are you sure you are using it for the same things?09:39
frittmann cwillu: I'm only a beginner with this, so not sure how to do all that. Might be easier for me to just reinstall.09:40
QH9r4mcichlasoma, ctrl+alt+backspace09:40
brijithchelz: I m sure09:40
silidanchez: still same problem09:40
nic1can i delete and install it?09:40
Guest14I just updated my linux kernel on a virtual machine running Ubuntu. When I rebooted, I needed to reconfigure vmware tools to get my network card back. The trouble is, that requires the linux headers, which I don't have, and I can't download them without a NIC. :D09:41
Guest14Catch 22... any ideas?09:41
chelzbrijith: you are correct, just a moment09:41
frittmanncwillu: I'm only doing this to learn with, it is not a production system, so it is not a major issue.09:41
kostkonnic1, you oucld install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package09:41
nic1kostkon: how can i istall that? i mean exact command?09:41
=== jc is now known as Guest35776
kostkonnic1, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras09:41
silidanchez: i did what you said, i created dos partition table made new fat32 partition, plugged out plugged in, ok, copied file on it, pluged out plugged in, read/write acces with thunderbird, plugged out, plugged in again no write acces...09:42
cwillufrittmann, so you want to learn how to chroot and fix things on a production system that actually matters? :p09:42
cwillufrittmann, forgive me if I don't hire you :p09:42
NidayloknHi everybody, sorry for my english09:42
brijithchelz:are you getting the same thing out there ...09:42
nic1kostkon: installing09:43
kostkonnic1, ok09:43
cwillufrittmann, it's not hard, and it'll give you insight into how the system is actually put together;  enough that you'll gain a comfort in putting systems back together from broken pieces lying on the floor09:43
nic1kostkon: with that can we expect sound to work?09:43
kostkon!hi | Nidaylokn,09:43
ubottuNidaylokn,: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IrcGuidelines. Enjoy your stay!09:43
NidayloknCan u help me? I'm having troubles with ubuntu 9.1009:43
chelzbrijith: no but it seems others are. have you installed all updates?09:43
frittmanncwillu: good point! okay, I'm eager to learn.09:43
kostkonnic1, at least will fix your codecs problem09:43
chelzsilidan: that is *really* strange09:44
silidannic1: all you can expect are possible solutions... no guaranteed solution, if that is what you search i think arch linux is more in that direction...09:44
zetherooyou would seriously have to wonder why grub2 is being used ???09:44
cwillufrittmann, from a livecd, this should mostly work:  mount /dev/whatever /mnt; mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev; mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc; mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys; chroot /mnt09:44
NidayloknCan u help me? I'm having troubles with ubuntu 9.1009:44
brijithchelz:yes is up to date09:44
chelzsilidan: so now unplugging and plugging it in at all has no write access?09:44
cwillufrittmann, from that point, you should be able to do pretty much anything you could do from a recovery prompt, including bringing up the system normally (with the exception of the kernel, obviously)09:45
silidanchelz: yep09:45
chelzbrijith: please make a pastebin of the output of the command "stty -a" (without the quotes)09:45
silidanchelz: crazy, i plugged out and in again, now i have write acces09:45
kostkon!ask | Nidaylokn09:45
ubottuNidaylokn: 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. :-)09:45
cwilluzetheroo, because grub 1 is abandoned by upstream, for some time now09:45
silidanchelz but thunderbird cant use it anymore...09:46
zetherooI can change sdb to sda in the grub menu and the system boot fine ... but of course the change is not saved ... hurrah for inovation09:46
chelzsilidan: how are you using it with thunderbird?09:46
frittmanncwillu: when you say a Live CD, I assume that means the option "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer". Is that right?09:46
chelzsilidan: that may be a "fix", just plugging it in and out until you get write access. you might make a forum thread on it. if it really is a bug it should be found and reported.09:46
cwillufrittmann, yes09:46
tkmsrI want to configure wifi in my ubuntu09:47
