Roastedjrib - Hmm, it just confused me becuase I watched a how to video on how to set up ACLs and the guy had 700 permissions on a directory, owned by root:root, but he granted more user permissions through ACLs. I just didn't see how that made sense to have 700 root-root perms yet other users could access throguh ACLs.00:01
looterI just updated to 9.10 from 9.04.  now when I boot up to ubuntu the screen just flashes as it is loading the nvidia drivers.  I can get into  a GUI if I boot into recovery and then delete xorg.conf and then startx.  I cannot seem to get the Nvidia drivers to activate though and buecause of this my graphic settings are low.  I tried reinstalling via synaptci anyone else hav eany suggestions?00:01

linuxguy2009sebsebseb: I could care less about the security of the VNC vs SSH connection for that to be honest. Is it simply not possible to do it anyways without the extra steps?00:02
ibrahimmufeedbilliard_junkee, I will check it00:02
sebsebseblooter: Go back to 9.04 for now? since really 9.10 is a testbed for 10.04        well you can try fixing stuff in recovory mode maybe with xfix.    Also Nivida graphics card drivers tend to just work.00:03
jribRoasted: it's the same way that if you have a file owned by someuser:somegroup with permissions 770 a user in somegroup can access the files even though he is not someuser00:03

ubottulooter: Attempting to downgrade to an older Ubuntu version is explicitly not supported, and may break your system.00:04
jribRoasted: ACLs let you use more groups for one :)00:04
sebsebseblooter: clean install00:04
looterrgr, will try it00:04
Roastedjrib - exactly! So how could users access the files through ACLs when its owned by root:root 700. 700 means owner only, nothing to group, nothing to everyone else.00:04

sebsebseblooter: yes you still will have00:04
vistroAnyone know why dd won't write to a floppy?00:04
sebsebseblooter: you can delete your Ubuntu partitions and make new ones00:04
jribRoasted: ACLs let you add more rules. One way to think of it is you have 770_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _  where all the _ represent more ACL rules00:05
lootersebsebseb: you don't think that will cause problems with vista install?  they are separate hds ....00:05
ibrahimmufeedbilliard_junkee, she said :{finally found the solution! you just have to configure your routing tables after logging into your vpn server.} . then how can I do that? do you have any idea?00:05
sebsebseblooter: it should be fine, as long as you don't delete Vista00:05
epinkyRoasted: http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/sysadmin-guide/ch-acls.html, check all the chapter :)00:05
duemmehi there, I have the language set on english but I want to set the write aid to Italian, using the gnome tool I can't, what do I have to edit?00:05
Roastedjrib - so ideally if I want to set up the most secure file server ever, I should have the parent directory owned by root:root with 770 permissions. Then, ACLs would "grant" additional users to access the files themselves.00:05
looterright.  perhaps I will give it a try if I can't get things to rollback00:05

lootersebsebseb: if you are confident I will try it.  I can still mount the vsista drive so I can backup all nessecary files in case I have to rebuild everything from the ground up.00:40

sebsebsebzetheroo: usaully, but00:43
lootersebsebseb: ok.  I am going to give it a shot then.00:43
sebsebseblooter: it said you were running 9.04?00:43
lootersebsebseb: what do you mean by it?00:43
McLovineshannon: how are you formatting?00:43
Kreamtrying install 9.10 on a laptop, is it possible that the wifi card is not showing up in lspci because I don't have the proper drivers loaded?00:44
eshannonCommand line. I am shh into my computer and want to reformat from xfs to ext300:44
sebsebseblooter: nevermind00:44

zetherooKream: not in lspci?00:45
sebsebseblooter: or how long you used for?00:45
eshannonI tried umount00:45
KreamMcLovin, thats what i thought. it's not present in lspci. but on the otherhand,it's a troublesome broadcom 4312 one. worked fine in vista until I nuked the windows install00:45
mun24anybody using subversion here?00:46
Kreamzetheroo : ^^00:46
m546dd will not work. There is terminal output, but the drive light does not flash, and no magnet turns on, nor motor turns00:46
Kreamwell, i dont know for sure that it is a 4312 bcom one - thats just the model that this laptop is suppsoed to have.00:46
McLovinKream: what version of ubuntu are you using?00:46
lootersebsebseb: i have been using various flavors for a few years now.  Ubuntu for about 2.  I also run TinyME on some older hardware and have Knoppmyth used as a DVR on an old compaq00:46
zetherooKream: can you pastebin your lspci output? ... have you ever used Linux before? if you have, has it ever worked?00:46
McLovinKream: lspci will display thee wifi card model and rev 3 or 4 lines from the bottom of the list00:47
sebsebseblooter: ok well  dual booting and partitining shoudn't be that big of a deal then,  anyway I can hep you set up a good 9.10 set up no problem,  that you can keep on updating for a long time00:47

sebsebseblooter: download the 9.10 CD,  9.10 is a good one to clean install it seems anyway, since then get Ext4 and Grub 2 by default, and also how many people got issues after upgarding from 9.0400:48
Kreamzetheroo:  I've used Linux since 1998, havent tried it on this laptop, though, it's a friend's00:48
lootersebsebseb:  will this be keeping in mind that I need to do everything I can to maximize my chances of keep the Vista on the other hd?00:48

zetherooKream: ok00:48
sebsebseblooter: Vista will be fine, as long as you don't delete the partition for it00:48
McLovinKream: ok00:48
lootersebsebseb: yea i ran a google query and it popped up quite a few posts pertaining to upgrades from 9.0400:48
cent255Then the splash screen goes away, and i get a message about maintenance of file system failed,00:48
lootersebsebseb: rgr00:48

Meowpupthere is no double entry in sourses.list i checked00:50

sebsebseblooter: oh you like the new boot up graphic, I don't like it, since I had  the Ubuntu or Kubuntu screen for 9.04  with  text  at the bottom saying what the OS is doing when booting up :)  well the other computer is 9.04 still, and it has the Ubuntu logo and the text for boot up00:50
lootersebsebseb: it would appear taht way.  I obviously horked something in the process of trying to upgrade00:50

sebsebseblooter: there's another distro that has a much nicer boot up,  and so on, that I will be switching to soon for now at least,  whilst waiting for 10.0400:51
mcurranHey McLovin - are you the same McLovin that's usually on Mint00:51
McLovinKream: ill take a look00:51
lootersebsebseb: yea I just thought it was kinda neat looking.  I didn't get to play around with it much since all ineeded it for was to mount a badly infected windows partition.00:51
Meowpupmcurran: : if you have a terminal baised web browser you can00:51
McLovinmcurran: nope00:51
lootersebsebseb: which distro?00:51
billiard_junkeelooter, I don't know but maybe try changing menu.lst to have  'rootnoverify       (hd0,1)'  or 'rootnoverify       (hd0,0)' under Windows.  I guess it cant hurt to try.  It seems to me that if you had Vista installed on the primary disk, it would be hd0...00:51
Meowpuphe is the same McLovin00:51
sebsebseblooter: we are getting a bit off topic now for this channel, but Mandriva 2010 Gnome00:52
mcurranwhat is a good terminal based web browser00:52
trismluis_: it could be an issue with the msn service itself, because my nick has kept disappearing this week in pidgin too (I finally had to set it to automatically assign a new one everytime I connect)00:52
sebsebseblooter: Mandriva One00:52
lootersebsebseb: i agree but somehow ubuntu sees its self as the primary drive even though it isn't00:52
sebsebseblooter: I tried to pm you twice earlier, but never got a reply there00:52
billiard_junkeeand since you know what it is right now, it will be easy to change back.  Right now windows is not working, so what are you out if it doesnt work?  ;)00:52
sebsebseblooter: oh right Vista should be the primary drive really I think00:53

varaderotsimpson, are there much easier way ? i plan 4000 copy01:04
jolarenepinky; Are you running it right now? Could you test? If thats not asking to much01:04
knopiesaero_, you might want to try scanning wireless networks in range, and see if yours is on a different channel to theirs.01:05
tsimpsonvaradero: then you'll probably want to create a custom ISO to install from01:05
McLovinKream: try this.   "sudo update-pciids"then run lspci again01:05
knopiesaero_, other interference (such as wireless phones) can also affect it. If you think its ubuntu, or a driver issue, then keep asking. Somone must know.01:05

smackdaddysoreau,how can i load that02:10
git__rootgui, sudo bash02:10
lstarnesrootgui: you shouldn't. it's linux02:10

git__rootgui, startx02:11
trevorjrootgui: don't do it.02:11
trevorjrootgui: you're just asking for trouble.02:11
trevorjrootgui: alot of programs WONT run as root02:11

rootguithat was it, sudo bash && startx?02:11
lstarnesrootgui: no.02:11
trevorjrootgui: don't do it.02:12
trevorjrootgui: seriously.02:12
trevorjrootgui: it's a stupid thing to do.02:12
lstarnesrootgui: that likely won't handle the environment correctly02:12
knopiesrootgui, for each individual command you want to run as root, use sudo. for a graphical application gksu/02:12
rootguiubuntu used to have a checkbox for that, does that exist in 9.10?02:12
cattussoreau: I did, unfortunately the results were even worse, rendering the box unusable... now most of it works ok but still compiz with extra effects it's a no go :(02:12

lstarnesrootgui: it would be irresponsible to do so02:13
cattussoreau: eh.. ^^'02:13
lstarnesrootgui: there is probably an option to allow it in GDM for logins, but don't be surprised if that has been removed02:13
rootguilstarnes: it was removed02:13
trevorjrootgui: there are no warnings, I am telling you that it will break things02:14

setuidHow do I stop the npviewer.bin Flash plugin from taking up 156% of my CPU?02:14
hedkandiif you look on karmic synaptics there's a package called "unrar" and the description says its "non-free version"!!02:14
lstarnesrootgui: if you need to run an individual graphical application as root, use alt+f2 then enter gksudo programname02:14
rootguitrevorj: i want it my way, i got all warnings from everyone02:14
hedkandiwhat does that mean?02:14
anarcapbilliard_junkee - Thanks for gparted. I didn't know that it worked in linux. I have a liveCD of it. I'm running it now. Thanks!02:14
lstarneshedkandi: not open source02:14
trevorjrootgui: then do it and make it work, there's an option in gdm to allow it.02:14
lstarneshedkandi: or not free as in not having freedom02:15
rootguitrevorj: it was removed02:15
lstarneshedkandi: but it is free as in price02:15
trevorjrootgui: then disable gdm02:15
trevorjrootgui: login to a vty as root02:15
trevorjrootgui: run startx02:15
hedkandidoes every package in restricted and multiverse say "non-free" ?02:15
trevorjrootgui: or login as your user, run sudo su -, then run startx02:15
lstarneshedkandi: a few02:15
dman810is there anyone that can help me with Network and internet support?02:15
trevorjhedkandi: alot of them, yes02:15
lstarnestrevorj: sudo -i is preferred02:15
hedkandiwell I think the terminology needs changing!02:15
rootguii am installing for a programmer that wants GUI root login; killing X then starting X specially is out of the question02:16
trevorjlstarnes: whats the difference?02:16
trevorjrootgui: as I said, disable gdm02:16
lstarnestrevorj: it just launches sudo and a shell instead of sudo, su, and a shell02:16
rootguitrevorj: that will remove X11?02:16
hedkandiI think a better word would be "non-foss"02:16
trevorjrootgui: it will disable it to start on bootup02:16
lstarnesrootgui: no, gdm just handles logins02:16
hedkandifree usually means money.02:16
rootguitrevorj: yeah, thats out of the question to do that everytime02:16
hedkandiah well enough from me02:17
lstarneshedkandi: what about non-libre?02:17
trevorjrootgui: he should NOT be programming as root02:17
Zsocihi there,my problem is that I used Gparted to format a partition,but I did it as root and I don't have permission to use this partition02:17
trevorjrootgui: he's being an idiot02:17
hedkandiwell I dunno if you'd say libre is english02:17
knopieshedkandi, with the whole copy-left thing (open source) free tends to mean freedom, rather than price. So in theory you can still charge for 'free' software02:17
trevorjrootgui: im sorry for my language02:17
anarcapbilliard_junkee - gparted worked: easy! fast! thanks again02:17
billiard_junkeeanarcap, glad it did what you needed.  good little utility02:17
trevorjrootgui: he should learn the proper way of doing things02:17
rootguiis there anyway to enable root login to GDM or do I have to install KDE using XDM?02:17
hedkandiI thought the gpl says you're only allowed to charge for postage?02:17
lstarneshedkandi: no!02:18
trevorjrootgui: why don't you just run xdm to run gnome02:18
lstarneshedkandi: that's just if you already have the executable version and want the sources02:18
trevorjrootgui: kde doesn't use xdm anyway, you're thinking of kdm02:18
thunderbolthedkandi: GPLed software can be sold for whatever value you wish. It only requires that source is distributed with binaries (basically)02:18
knopieshedkandi, if so, thats the gpl.02:18
trevorjrootgui: but xdm will work with both02:18
lstarneshedkandi: you can still charge for the executables or a copy of the executables with the source02:18
rootguii wanted a simple solution; thats why i chose ubuntu; maybe the checkbox moved or there are more advanced optiosn somewhere02:18
thunderboltI thought the GPL required that source be provided for the same price as binaries, but no more.02:18
* thunderbolt shrugs02:18
rick__who here is using banshee 1.5.2  ??02:19
lstarnesthunderbolt: it's the cost of delivery for the source02:19
trevorjrootgui: why don't you just run gksudo <app>02:19
hedkandiokay but the gpl says you are allowed to redistribute the software too02:19
trevorjrootgui: it will then run the gui app as root02:19

rootguibazhang: administrative/root login (GUI) is not supported in Ubuntu02:21

trevorjalexandre: ctrl+c02:24
morpheustrevorj i now there from root/02:24
rootguibazhang: where should i go for ubuntu support?02:24
hedkandiinteresting faq02:25
billiard_junkeeunlike windows, where you can only grab a window by the title bar, in linux you can grab a window anywhere by holding alt, progre55 ...I have had that happen.  WHat it usually is, is that the title bars are behind your top panel02:25
bazhangrootgui, this is not supported nor recommended. Please move on.02:25
morpheus<trevorj> if gdm not allow, you can change it in config/02:25
hedkandiI don't understand the bit about incompatible gpl-libraries with gpl software.02:25
trevorjmorpheus: yeah, i told him that02:25
hedkandiWhat is the issue here?02:25
trevorjmorpheus: but it's not as straight forward with the new gdm and lack of proper gdm-setup02:25
hedkandiI mean gpl-incompatible libraries with gpl software02:25
trevorjmorpheus: and I don't even know if the new gdm supports it02:26
thunderbolthedkandi: It's like being under two contracts that have contradictory requirements.02:26
cattusanother problem: can't compile vmware player modules on ubuntu studio 9.10, I know there was an old patch for a previous previous player on a RT kernel, but couldn't find any for vmware player 3, is anybody bumping into the same problem?02:26
hedkandihow can you say that a library is part of a gpl-app02:26
morpheustrevorj in ubuntu 9.10? it's allow to login as root default, but root password not setuped02:26
trevorjmorpheus: it is? thats disgusting02:26
progre55billiard_junkee, oh, thanks. but I dont think my problem is that.. I mean, none of the windows have the title bars.. even the small ones in the middle of the screen02:26
thunderbolthedkandi: Contract A says "You must put a clause of credit in all advertising and documentation for this product." Contract B says "You must distribute software with source, and add no other requirements."02:27
Izinucscattus: that's one of the reasons I switched to virtualbox.. none of those issues.. and easier to setup a vm02:27
wastrelthere's no good reason to login to gnome as root02:27
thunderbolthedkandi: Derivative work under copyright is what causes applications to be derivatives of the libraries they use.02:27
morpheus<trevorj>  yes02:27
thunderbolthedkandi: Basically, they treat it the same as if I write additions to a book, and then distribute the new combined work.02:28
thunderboltThey == "the courts"02:28
hedkandiokay so I get a gpl application and I modify it and my modifications use library A.02:29
BardologyIs there a reason ubuntu starts off with a "ubuntu" user rather than "root"?02:29
billiard_junkeeprogre55, is it the title bar or the menu bar?02:29
hedkandiI must release it under the gpl02:29
BardologyIs this security or convention?02:29
hedkandibut library A demands something else02:29
thunderboltBardology: Both.02:30
trevorjBardology: thunderbolt said it perfectly02:30
Luciderhi can any one help me convert avi file to rmvb file and with subtitles encoded in the file using ubuntu02:30
trevorjBardology: it's completely unsupported to login as root. This isn't windows.02:30
trevorjBardology: login via gui as root that is ;)02:30
thunderbolthedkandi: Right, and since you have contradictory obligations under the license of Library A and the GPL, you can't distribute it at all. (I think)02:31
hedkandiokay so let's say that the library in question is DirectX 1002:31
BardologyI don't have a GUI on the server :)02:31
hedkandiand my gpl application uses DirectX 1002:31
william7Can someone please tell me why I can't view a webpage located at when I have my /etc/hosts file appropriately configured?      The local webpage loads fine when I've got a good wireless or wired connection,  but the moment I lose connectivity online,  the local webpage no longer loads.    I can ping  and it works fine   etc..    /etc/hosts file entry:   "     mytestsite".02:31
hedkandiDo you think DX10 counts as a "system library"? I think it would02:31
thunderbolthedkandi: It probably does.02:31
progre55billiard_junkee, all the title bars, and after I reload the window manager (compiz) it all gets to normal02:31
Tocaioalguem BR ???02:31
BardologyJust a pain that I have to sudo everything because root owns it02:31
bazhang!br | Tocaio02:31
ubottuTocaio: Por favor, use #ubuntu-br para ajuda em português. Obrigado.02:31
hedkandiokay so let's suppose I put a copy of DX10 on my distribution CD so that people can update to it easily02:32
hedkandiwhat's wrong with that?02:32
hedkandi'cos the gpl doesn't like that at all.02:32

jenny-devbiewithout using a text editor?03:27
jken146jenny-devbie: grep is very useful.  One command for finding out about your hardware is lspci.  Try tpying "lspci" and you'll see loads of output.  But say you wanted to find out about just your graphics card.  You might type "lspci | grep VGA" and it'll just display the bits with "VGA" in them.  | is a kind of pipe that redirects the output of the first command into the second one (it feeds it to grep in this case)03:27

doseryderjenny-devbie: is it too much to swallow at once?  If you're planning on coding in GNU/Linux, I strongly suggest that learn *one text editor. e.g. vim03:41
knopiesjenny-devbie, doseryder I dislike vim. I would rather recomend gedit.03:41

doseryderknopies: why do you dislike vim?03:42
jenny-devbiechecking gedit03:42
knopiesdoseryder, the interface. it putts me off. I use gedit for its plugins and that Its instinctive for me to understand how to use it.03:42
knopiesdoseryder, also, gedit has tabs.03:42
zcat[1]I much prefer gedit (in the gui) or nano (in a console) .. never liked vi, and never felt inclined to see if vim reallt is 'improved'03:43
doseryderjenny-devbie: well, vim has a lot of commands which allows you to do everything you would ever think of (plus more) when it comes to editing03:43
keppigedit needs X to run.  If you want to run in a terminal use nano03:43

keppivi and vim are not very friendly03:44

ubottulinux_guy: fsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot03:52

iMattermezquitale: none with a capable recovery console04:10
Flannelsdk: They use the same repositories, the differences are what packages are installed by default04:10

ardchoilledoseryder: see my PM04:14
iMattermezquitale, ok04:14
mcurranI don't know why people don't do this, but the best way to dual-boot with windows is to keep the MBR in the boot sector and place grub on the linux partition, then you set the linux partition active and add an entry for windows in grub - therefore no mess and nothing to worry about.04:14
alabdGood day every one , which packages should be installed to open a java web base app ? sun-java-bin & sun-java-jre & sun-java- plugin are installed , but firefox can not open a java applet on linux(ubuntu) that firefox can open it in vista of course it is opened in another system with linux debian5, why ?  , means that applet can not be opened by other browsers too .. except sun-java-jre and sun-java-bin and sun-java-plugin should any other package be in04:14

sdkKeppi - the website isn't very explanatory04:15
keppisdk:  yes it's pretty snappy and lightweight.  I run it on my slower pc's04:15
sdkkeppy - do you like thunar? How does it compare?04:16
ubottuTo install a Java runtime/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java runtime install sun-java6-jre from the !Multiverse repository04:16
mezquitalemcurran, because grub2 doesnt play nice and sometimes you have to use MBR, it's actually easier to just let grub2 use the MBR, it works!  I have tried it and im quite happy with it, if you want to add windows partition in grub afterwards it might be a chore in grub204:16
=== dvz- is now known as jmlady
mcurranWell a chainloader entry is usually generated by ubiquity in grub2 anyways04:17

sdkkeppi - can I pretty much install any regular deb packages in xubuntu without issues? I'm somewhat new to linux, and I'm looking for a pretty simple desktop environment. I like gnome, but I was thinking about trying xfce04:17

sdkKeppi - [sorry] what do you mean by pig?04:19
mcurranNo, feel free to use the boot sector, I just find it easier to put grub in the linux partition and leave MBR alone - That's just my preference04:19

Breetaihelp! I have a disk where the file permissions are set to -r-- --- --- and it won't let me chmod them. What can i do?04:19
mcurranThen you could also add entries for linux with EasyBCD if you want also04:19
keppisdk:  gnome uses a lot more resources, and is slow vs xfce it runs slower on older boxes04:20
mcurranI multi-boot usually one windows OS - ubuntu or linux mint - kalyway OS X - and BackTrack  - each with their own respective boot loader and can freely jump from any one os to the other04:20

mezquitalemcurran, new users might not know how to specify which partition to install it on, hd0? hd1?  If they install in the MBR it will work and it's just fine, advanced users can off course use their own settings but to encourage people to use ubuntu using MBR will be just fine, it's works and it's simple04:20
sdkkeppi - I like speed, but what's the trade off?04:20
keppisdk:  one of my xfce boxes runs as a live music streamer and the other runs as an internet kiosk04:20
mcurranYes, but don't you see how many people where it doesn't work perfectly and then they don't know what to do.04:21
keppisdk:  tradeoff depends on what you require out of the system.  I don't really see any downsides to it.  Tends to be updated less often then gnome.04:21
mcurranThat's why I've been saying ubiquity should install grub to the root partition by default, then there wouldn't be as many problems04:22

keppiflexible:  sure it's not the other way around?04:54
jrtrobertsif the modem is connected to a WAN Port, then NAT will deal with the network difference.04:54

meatcarLet's say, hypotheticaly I was interested in contributing to the software community, ubuntu or otherwise, coding wise, where can I start?04:56

flexiblemeatcar: c04:56
iMatterIs it possible to install grub to windows partition?04:56
unkmarflexible: sorry, I was thinking, DHCP serving.  not Automatic IP aquiring.04:56
altf2ojust turn off DHCP from any other routers internally. You only need one device (typically your DSL modem\router or Cable modem\router) to act as a DHCP server04:56
iMatterBecause I don't have ubuntu installed, and I don't really like windows bootloader04:56

flexiblejrtroberts: oh. and should upnp be enabled on both my router and modem05:06
Tekk1I need to know the main repository for hardy's address05:06
jrtroberts2upnp is Universal Plug and Play05:06
ZaNeIuMnot the login window, the boot screen05:06
Tekk1ZaNeIuM: don't worry, we were all new to GNU/Linux at one time ;D05:06
lstarnesTekk1: will one of the mirrors work?05:06
gamerguy26i'm about 2 days new to linux05:06
Tekk1lstarnes: I don't see why not05:06
lstarnesTekk1: do you just need main and not the others?05:06
jrtroberts2flexible: that just lets machines outside of your network connect, it opens any port that any other machine wants05:07
lhx_jrtroberts2: you don't have a dad named bill do you?05:07
Tekk1lstarnes: just main05:07
jrtroberts2no dad named bill05:07
dreamcageTekk1, i entered in the home page of geany and it is an multi purpose IDE.. i would like a easy to draw tool to create css and desing things... does geany support things like that?05:07
lhx_thought i recognized your nick05:07
jrtroberts2flexible: turn that off05:07
Tekk1dreamcage: if you can code it, geany supports it05:07

unkmaryeah, I was new to it when I was born.  hadn't seen it yet.  j/k. I only have about a year under my belt.05:08
lstarnesTekk1: followed by: deb-src http://ubuntu.osuosl.org/ubuntu/ hardy main05:08
jrtroberts2flexible: you can just do some port forwarding if you need a certain protocol or application to work...05:08
Meowpuphey i got this error is it something to do with the ubuntu server being down?? " sudo apt-get update E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (2 No such file or directory)   E: Unable to lock the list directory"05:08
dreamcageTekk1, of course, but when i say easy to draw i mean i could use the mouse... i am not a html expert and i need some fast previews05:08
JPSmanis it possible to try out other windows managers without closing gnome?05:08
unkmarjrtroberts2: will he need to use iptables to do that?05:08
microlithwhatever kernel 9.10 shipped with does not like it when vmware tries to be helpful05:09
jrtroberts2unkmar: iptables is for linux...05:09
Tekk1Tekk1: it's not frontpage or dreamweaver, but it works great when you learn the stuff05:09
jrtroberts2portforwarding on the router is self contained.05:09
Tekk1dreamcage: no, it's not what you're looking for then05:09
unkmarJPSman: yeah, do remote X from another system.05:09
lstarnesTekk1: you might also want to add the updates and/or security repos05:09
princezudaHey quick question... isn't the setup connection multiverse in ubuntu to download things that may break laws in some countries? Reason I'm asking is because flash player used multiverse to install.... which is odd since it is legal to use the flash player.05:09
jrtroberts2if he was running a linux server for a router then he would use iptables, since that is effectively a catch all access list for linux systems.05:09
Tekk1lstarnes: no, I use an ubuntu based distro and our main has been down for a while, everything else has been up05:09
chompyis there a program that will rip content off of dvds? That I own.05:10
unkmarJPSman: I don't suggest it.  But you can.  You can keep both gnome and have another windom manager installed at the same time. then choose which to use.05:10
dreamcageTekk1, do you have another option for me to use? suggestions? (dreamweaver like programs)05:10
jrtroberts2unkmar: that answer your question?05:10
Tekk1dreamcage: no, I think things like that are an abomination personally...05:10
JPSmanunkmar: any way to do it on the same computer?05:10
lstarnesMeowpup: no, that's caused by a missing file05:11

rickasaurusok sweet, I figure out how to fix it for one user via pulseaudio volume control05:12
unkmarjrtroberts2: yes you answered my question.05:12
rickasaurusnow how do I make those settings the global default05:12
princezudaOkay so isn't the use of multi-verse illegal?05:12
uncleBezdreamweaver back like 8-10 years ago was a great tool. since then its more trouble than its worth.05:12
lstarnesprincezuda: no05:13
unkmarJPSman: not that I know of.  Maybe someone else knows more than I do.05:13
uncleBezis code indenting for a start is ugly and so hard to configure!05:13
JPSmanunkmar: thank you :OD05:13
lstarnesprincezuda: if it were illegal, it wouldn't be an official part of ubuntu05:13
Meowpuplstarnes: ok so in ubuntu 9.04 i cant do "sudo apt-get update" without the error. has it been updated for karmic ot something now05:13
jmspeexOK, I think I've found out why my notifications end up being unreadable. Apparently, there's some bit of moronic code in the font preference and when I set my application font size to "10.5" then the noticication code only sees the 5 and give me notifications in 5pt05:13
lstarnesprincezuda: it's legal stuff that isn't freely licensed05:13
princezudahmm... I thought it was to download decoders and such that breaks parts of some countries laws. Reason I'm asking is because flash was downloaded via it.05:14

jledermanwhat do I do when ssh tells me "no route to host" ?05:14
lstarnesprincezuda: you're probably thinking of the medibuntu repos05:14
ysj_hello, freshman test05:14
lstarnesjlederman: check your routing05:14
unkmarjlederman: give up and find another route.05:14
unkmarjlederman: are you sure the ssh server is running?05:14
jledermanunkmar, nope i'm really new to this. I'm trying to ssh into my palm pre from my computer. I have the necessary components installed05:15
git__anyone here has a blackberry?05:16
unkmarjlederman: I see. Hmm, palm pre. fancy toy. first thought, has it been rebooted.  As in turned off and on again.  i don't know if that is needed, but it can't hurt.05:17
unkmarjlederman: do you know the pre's ip?05:17
git__where do you get ssh app for blackberry?05:17
jledermanunkmar: yep i've tried both the local and wan ip address. the local one returned the "no route ..." and the wan is just sitting.. like its working but no results yet05:18
princezudaI have a blackberry.05:18
princezudaI connect my blackberry to my computer via usb and ubuntu reads it as another hard drive and charges it at the same time.05:19
jledermanunkmar, i'm really just not familiar enough with the terminal commands for ssh yet, and the manual is rather large (just started tinkering with all this this afternoon)05:19
unkmarjlederman: I'd only try the local.05:19
unkmarI'd do the wan after I new the local was working.  much faster reject time.05:19
jledermanwell, either way I get the no route to host. so that means something is not running? namely, whatever it is on the phone that needs to be turned on05:20
Meowpuplstarnes:  how do i get apt-get update to do that05:20
jledermanunkmar: oh snap i tried again and it gave me authenticity check rather than error...05:21
lstarnesMeowpup: it's a terminal command05:21
jledermanpermission denied lol05:21
unkmarjlederman: now you are down to getting the user/pass correct or a keypair.05:21
lstarnesMeowpup: file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock05:21
jledermanunkmar: correct. I know how to use the keygen, but am not sure about getting a duplicate on the phone..05:22
jledermanunkmar: it would be incorrect to make them separately on the phone and the pc, yes? i've read that it has to be copied into a directory05:22
jrtroberts2alright, I am starting to feel even better about taking all of these CISCO classes...05:22
altf2ojrtroberts2: what are you going for?05:23
unkmarjlederman: I don't remember the exact process.  but it boils down to a public/private key pair.  Gotta have the public in one place and the private in the other.05:23
Meowpuplstarnes: file /var/lib/apt/lists/lock05:23
Meowpup/var/lib/apt/lists/lock: ERROR: cannot open `/var/lib/apt/lists/lock' (No such file or directory)05:23
lstarnesMeowpup: then that file does not exist05:23
unkmarjlederman: both are generated at the same time using the same system.  phone or computer.05:23

jrtroberts2right now an AAS in Network Specialist, and then a BASIT in netowrk management, and then a MBA in Computer Science.05:24
lstarnesMeowpup: use sudo touch /var/lib/apt/lists/lock05:24
altf2overy nice...05:24
jrtroberts2Currently I am taking CCNP classes...05:24
jrtroberts2just one more after this and and Econ class and My AAS is finished...05:24
lstarnesMeowpup: thrn use sudo chmod 0640 /var/lib/apt/lists/lock05:24
Meowpuplstarnes: chmod: cannot access `/var/lib/apt/lists/lock': No such file or directory05:25
lstarnesMeowpup: you didn't use touch05:25
altf2ocongrats. I've long since established i'm not good in school, i learn better on my own. I've recently started studying for my CCNA. So far not to bad, although we'll see how these 'simulators' stack up to real equipment i would prob. get in a class.05:26
Meowpupls i used to be able to update fine now i know i have not deleated that file is there a way of restoring it05:26
Meowpupthe origional05:26
lstarnesMeowpup: yes05:26
lstarnesMeowpup: by using touch05:26
lstarnesMeowpup: it is always an empty file when it does exist05:26
pnemaHI all, I freed up some space on a new partition, does someone have a good link that states how to move an existing file system onto a new partition (using 9.10)05:27
jrtroberts2altf2o: actually packet tracer is as good as the real equiment in about 85-90 percent of CCNA related scenarios.05:27
Meowpuplsttouch manually doing it05:27
jledermanunkmar: yeah, I think i have to copy it. ssh-keygen man says "The contents of this file should be added to  ~/.ssh/authorized_keys on all machines where the user wishes to log in using RSA authentication. "05:27
Meowpuplstarnes:  touch manually doing it05:27
jrtroberts2my only recommendation is that you get used to using the console cables and termial app in the pc desktop...05:27
lstarnesjlederman: just copy the contents of your ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub into the server's into ~/.ssh/authorized_keys05:28
jrtroberts2if you are not using packet tracer or the CISCO official Cirriculum, then I am not sure what to tell you.  BOSON makes their own version of the cisco IOS with limited capabilities.05:28
lstarnesjlederman: there is an way to do that remotely with one command.  I think it is cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub | ssh USER@HOST "tee -a ~/.ssh/authorized_keys"05:28
lstarnes*a way05:29
jrtroberts2The biggest thing you will miss out on not using real equiment is the way it looks and feels and responds.  actually hooking up cables, and having to verify patch cable types...05:29
jledermanlstarnes: ahhh ok thank you05:29
Out_Coldi am loving the xrandr ease of use now... used to be such a pain trying to set up an extended desktop onto the TV...05:29
altf2ogotcha... Well my work has the Cisco library for free so i've been reading the PDFs. Just noticed i get 40% off at ciscopress.com so i will be using the Cisco material for sure. I'll have to check into packet tracer05:29
mcurranwow the backtrack guys don't talk much05:30
jrtroberts2packet tracer is a dream...05:30
Out_Coldmcurran, they have their days... and they don't usually answer stupid questions05:30
jrtroberts2learn about simulation mode and you can inspect packets on a hop by hop basis... you can look at the pdu's and see what changes are made from device to device.  and it will even allow you to run quizes on what is happening at the various layers of the OSI stack, or TCP/IP,05:31

ShentinoI'm just remarking on WPA1's flaws.  Rumor has it that it's just as bad as WEP05:35
jrtroberts2you may need to see if you have to take the class online though, as usually you have to register with the cisco academy through a certified partner school...05:35

alabdleaf-sheep:  sun-java-jre is installed should be removed for firefox detecting java from openjdk ?05:38

Out_Coldsharpen047, it's an alsa issue i think where each app takes full control of your sound... i don't think there is a solution yet05:57
Flare-Laptopzcat[1]: Yes, with gnome-theme-manager05:57
zcat[1]gnome-theme-manager: command not found05:58
sharpen047can i just remove it and use alsa or something?05:58
Flare-Laptopzcat[1]: hold on05:58
macozcat[1]: gnome-appearance-properties you mean?05:58
Silent_Echomaco:  yeah...i got introduced to emerald and i just kinda stuck with it, never gave me problems so i just blindly stuck with it XP05:58
\\`00tSo, on gnome-look (along the left side) which option do I pick so it'll work with the "Appearence Preferences" applet?05:58
macosharpen047: kubuntu doesnt include pulseaudio, so go ahead05:58
ShentinoTo be honest I always found alsa to be quite willing to let multiple apps use the sound at the same time05:58
murchersonis pulseaudio still tied in to desktop?05:58
Out_Coldsharpen047, pulseaudio uses alsa as a higher lever stack05:58
macoSilent_Echo: thereve been attempts to remove it from the archive since development stalled a long time ago05:59
macomurcherson: in gnome, yes05:59
Shentinoso pulse -> alsa -> sound card05:59
Flare-Laptopzcat[1]: idk05:59
macomurcherson: more and more each realease05:59
zcat[1]LOGIN screen... not in gnome-appearance-properties05:59
sharpen047Shentino, so if i uninstall PA will it fall back to alsa? or is there more work Out_Cold05:59
JostiHello! Could anyone help me with my egalax touch screen ? Cant seem to calibrate it05:59
macosharpen047: yes it will05:59
Out_ColdShentino, something like that.. i think there are a few more levels but yea05:59
sharpen047maco, kubuntu karmic comes with PA05:59
macosharpen047: no it does not05:59
macosharpen047: im on the kubuntu development team05:59
Out_ColdShentino, i just use one app at a time lol05:59
macosharpen047: perhaps you installed java?06:00
Shentinomeh, I like firing up sox in a VT and doing stuff on desktop ^^06:00
sharpen047maco, thank you06:00
sharpen047maco, if it is installed i did it through firefox06:00
Shentinothough there's some sort of bug that kills the sound at least temporarily when you switch to a VT06:00
Shentinoand it gets hosed if that VT belongs to someone else other than who owns the desktop06:00
macosharpen047: i think java is the most common way for pulseaudio to accidentally end up on kubuntu systems. personally, i like pulseaudio, but then ive had over a year of hanging out with the audio guru to learn to make it work for me06:00
lowlycoderin the english sentenced, is the right grammar "friends worth dying beside" or "friends worth dying besides"?06:00
zcat[1]there are gdm theme packages in karmic but absolutely no way of USING any of the themes?!!06:01

ubottuOut_Cold: Please don't use "LOL" and "OMG" and so forth on a regular basis. This is IRC, not IM, and using those lines on their own is not required, and it is rather annoying to the rest of the people in the channel; thanks.06:01
macolowlycoder: the former06:01

Out_Coldi think that over use of badly timed bot scripts should be limited to people who are actually opped06:02

Blue1is anyone else having usb flash drive mount failures in 9.10?06:02
sharpen047maco, haha well is therea way to configure it so i can have sound through firefox and amarok?(example)06:02
Flare-LaptopOut_Cold: Nope, not when a IRC op helper (like me) know when and how to use them :)06:03
zcat[1]\\`00t:  mostly you just need to install compizconfig-settings-manager and enable the cube through that, compiz is already installer and running in ubuntu since way back06:03
macosharpen047: theoretically, if *everything* or *nothing* in system settings -> multimedia is set to use pulseaudio, it should all work, but mixing and matching will break things06:03
sharpen047maco, i changed "audio output" and set to all devices06:04
macosharpen047: not having pulseaudio installed at all should also work in kubuntu because phonon *should* handle everything06:04
zcat[1]\\`00t:  assuming you have a 3d-capable video card and any required drivers06:04
qwebirc15308Blue1: I am06:04

KenBW2Out_Cold: yea i know, but when i tried t failed06:09
Out_Coldlandry, very not true..... people just don't write viruses for linux.. that and you need sudo rights to run the virus06:09

ubottuOut_Cold, landry: A/V software is available, however read this to understand why Linux does not have a virus problem: http://librenix.com/?inode=2106:10
macolandry: there have been ~30 viruses for linux in the wild over the years. they are quickly patched out of existence. none in a few years that im aware of06:10
Out_ColdKenBW2, have you found any other info on that app other than that onee site?? it seems pretty fishy to me06:10
unkmarShapeShifter499: it means that the ssh is working and the portforwarding is working.  you just need stable way to know where the system is if your Internet IP changes on your DSL network.06:10
landryOut_Cold:  well if I visit the site and dont give my password...06:10
ShapeShifter499unkmar: should it work? cuz all it did to me was keep saying that the network was unreachable06:10
KenBW2Out_Cold: ive used it on previous iterations of ubuntu06:10

ShapeShifter499unkmar: unreachable outside of my network06:11
Flare-Laptophemant_: Live CD?06:11
Silent_Echohemant_: live cd06:11
unkmarShapeShifter499: if the no-ip properly resolves to your Internet ip. then it will work.06:11
\\`00tStupid question ... in Compiz ... how do I add more than 2 desktops (2 doesn't make for an exciting cube, hah)06:11
Flare-LaptopShapeShifter499: Get a real domain :D06:11
unkmarShapeShifter499: it IS reachable from outside of your network by the IP.06:11
maco\\`00t: in general settings you can set horizontal virtual size to 406:11
Flare-Laptop\\`00t: install compizconfig-settings manager, then set the horizontal virtual size to 4 on the general menu06:12
ShapeShifter499unkmar: but not when I use the url the no-ip gave me06:12
Out_Coldi have had several difficulties with wine apps even though a lot of them seem heavily supported06:12
unkmar\\`00t: right click the desktop selection thingy on the bar and select a number larger than 2 for horizontal desktops.06:12
KenBW2Out_Cold: maybe if it's a wine app it would cause problems if you installed it n Windows, hence the warning06:12
\\`00tFlare-Laptop, Can you have a diff wallpaper on each "desktop"?06:12
Flare-Laptop\\`00t: Not yet06:12
Flare-Laptop\\`00t: As far as I know anyway, I can't.06:12

landryurl maps to an ip06:13
macoShentino: proper is like "sue due" but "sue doe" is common too06:14
KenBW2Out_Cold: ill look into it06:14
\\`00toooh, that makes sense06:14
macoShentino: because its "superuser do" where "do" is the verb06:14
ShapeShifter499unkmar: shapeshifter499.hopto.org06:14
pcdummysevol1: for me it works perfect06:14

ubottubackintime-common (source: backintime): simple backup/snapshot system. In component universe, is extra. Version 0.9.26-3 (karmic), package size 74 kB, installed size 664 kB06:20
mattcenftab: Depending on what sort of files you are using there are probably gui tools that will work. E.g. You could probably use Eclipse for searching for code inside files06:20
Out_Coldthen i suggest multiple gedits06:20
unkmarShapeShifter499: one of my servers is behind a DSL modem.  I did not set the router to handle the no-ip address updating.06:20

ftabmattcen, I tried many options using grep but no luck06:21
GammaXlandry: reffering to from the grub menu?06:21
Seveasgrep, fgrep (for non-regex strings), strings (for binart files). What more could onw want :)06:21
unkmarShapeShifter499: I created a script that runs from cron.hourly.  It checks if there is a change in the ip and then updates accordingly.06:21
ShapeShifter499unkmar: do I need no ip?06:21
landryGammaX: yes06:21
agoristHi all, so I just installed Ubuntu. (I'm kind-of new to linux/ubuntu) what do ya'll suggest for packages to install? What do you use?06:21
mattcenftab: What are you searching for, and what sort of files are you looking in?06:21
landryGammaX: The next line down from the default selection06:21
ftablet me send you06:21
GammaXlandry: I think it said restore mode or something, Im in it now but it doesnt auto sense the touchpad or sound06:22
ftabfind . | xargs grep "$settings['theme_url']=" -sl06:22
unkmarShapeShifter499: not if you no your IP address and that it isn't going to change.  if you think your IP might change then you need something to keep you updated to the changes.  that is what no-ip is all about.06:22
KenBW2agorist: what do you want to do06:22
ftabgrep -H -r "displaze" ~/public_html/aftabnaveed-dsp/forum/*.php06:22
Out_ColdKenBW2, and when you install it, you get errors?\06:22
zcat[1]Ohh, wrong article06:22
ftabused that kind of patterns for searching06:22
KenBW2Out_Cold: im trying it now, seems to be working06:22
ShapeShifter499unkmar: can you ssh
landryGammaX: have you tried live boot from the CD?06:22
mattcenftab: What was the find command for?06:22
Seveasftab, to speed that up slightly, use fgrep if the string you're searching for isn't a regex06:23
agoristKenBW2 - just about everything from brows the web to edit video06:23
mattcenThat xargs bit probably won't work as intented because the $settings will get expanded by the shell06:23
unkmarShapeShifter499: no. is a private IP.  they can't be reached from through the web.06:23
agoristKenBw2 - Most imporant: Burn ISO files (to share linux)06:23
KenBW2agorist: you have firefox installed already06:23
GammaXlandry: Nope, If I do the live boot what will be the purpose ( in reguards to what will I do )06:23
masterfishslayeranyone have experience with black screen after botched shutdown06:23
ftabmattcen, I found that on google, but tried grep as well06:23
masterfishslayer9.10 karmic06:23
agoristKenBw2: Play Video Codecs. (I've always used VLC on windows)06:24
landryGammaX: to see if your touchpad and stuff works.06:24
KenBW2agorist: burn ISOs with Applications > Brasero06:24
agoristKenBW2 - Yeah, firefox came in ubuntu06:24
ShapeShifter499unkmar: thats the prob I don't know my comps net ip just the dsl ip, the local ip, and the no-ip url06:24
unkmarShapeShifter499: read about IP's and network classes.   Class A, B, C, D.06:24
KenBW2agorist: codecs can be installed with ubuntu-restricted-extras06:24
GammaXlandry:  ahhhh ok06:24
unkmarwhat Ip did you give me for the dsl IP?06:24
zcat[1]masterfishslayer:  regularly ; try alt-F8 then alt-F7 again to get it back06:24
landryGammaX: ;)06:25
ShapeShifter499unkmar: yea, cuz it was detected by your link you told me to wget06:25
agoristKenBW2 - You prefer Brasero? I did have a bit of a problem with it in Mint. It messed up 3 DVDs and i switched programs and the other program burned on the first try.06:25
masterfishslayertried that... i just get the circle cursor with a black background06:25
mattcenftab: So you're looking for 'displaze' in all forum/*.php files? If that's you're intent, that's what you're doing. Also remember that grep is case sensitive unless you use '-i'06:25
Out_ColdShapeShifter499, if you can ssh from within your network to or whatever it was, but you can't ssh your real ip addy from outside your network then it may be poor router setup with port forwarding06:25
KenBW2agorist: iv never actually used it - i use K3B06:25
pcdummyargorist: which other one?06:25
ftabmattcen, let me try -i06:26
agoristKenBW2 - Does ubuntu-restricted-extras install Flash? Or should I download form flash website, or non-free flash from synaptic06:26
unkmarShapeShifter499: there are other websites out there that can give you that information.  dyndns.org is one of them.06:26
masterfishslayerzcat[1]: tried that... i just get the circle cursor with a black background06:26
KenBW2agorist: yes it does06:26
zcat[1]agorist:  yes it installs flash06:26
sharpen047maco, hey still there?06:26
d4rkfe4rIve been having issues with duel screen and nvidia06:26
macosharpen047: aye06:26
ShapeShifter499unkmar: yea I got a account with dyndns.org06:26
Out_Coldd4rkfe4r, like what?06:27
agoristKenBW2 - K3B - You like it? I'll give it a shot. zcat[1] Thanks!06:27
zcat[1]masterfishslayer:  hmmm, ctrl-alt-f8 sorry (otherwise it doesn't actually switch) .. that's how I make mine come back anyhow...06:27
KenBW2Out_Cold: IEs4Linux has installed fine. we'll see if it wipes my HDD :P06:27
sharpen047you take a look at that link i sent you about the media keys?06:27
bazhangd4rkfe4r, using xrandr ?06:27
Out_ColdKenBW2, i don't see why it would06:27
d4rkfe4rBoth are my monitors are the EXACT same model and the max res for both is 1280 x 102406:27
KenBW2Out_Cold: actually if it's not run with admin rights it can't do anything outside my user space anyway can it?06:27
d4rkfe4rBut on one the max is 640 x 48006:28
masterfishslayerzcat[1]: tried alt-ctl-f1, f2, f3,f4,f5,f6,f7,f8, etc06:28
Out_Coldd4rkfe4r, have you tried the nvidia settings app?06:28
agoristKenBW2 is there anything better than Inkscape , or is that the best illustrator type program?06:28
GammaXlandry: also the only kernel wich works is 2.6.28-1306:28
zcat[1]masterfishslayer:  well, I'm all out of ideas ;)06:28
KenBW2agorist: it depends what you want to do06:28
Out_ColdKenBW2, should be fine06:28
d4rkfe4rive deleted xorg.conf and remade it06:28
KenBW2Out_Cold: yea ive never had a problem with it before06:28
Out_Coldd4rkfe4r, which driver version are you running? 180?06:29
d4rkfe4rThe newest06:29
KenBW2agorist: i like Inkscape for *creating* imges, but it's not for editing photos06:29
d4rkfe4ri have a 8800 gt06:29
agoristKenBW2 - Yeah, like illustrator, not photoshopt - gotcha.06:29
Out_Coldi had tried that and was having issues and had to downgrade to 160 or 170 i think..06:29
unkmarardchoille: that is probably the best for SVG stuff.06:29
landryGammaX: only 2.6.28-13 boots?06:30
KenBW2agorist: i'm not familiar with illustrator06:30
ardchoilleagorist: ^^06:30
unkmaragorist: gimp is more the photoshop speed.06:30
d4rkfe4rAhh, ill give that the 'ol college try06:30
agoristKenBW2: How about a good program for mounting ISO images - a gui tool?06:30
Out_Coldi have an 8600 gt i think.... i don't use the nvidia box too much06:30
GammaXlandry: the others either hang or the screen continuously glitches and I can not do anything.06:30
leaf-sheepagorist: Right-click the ISO and mount it.06:30
unkmarKenBW2: photoshop = raster/pixels.  illustrator = vectors/lines and curves.06:30
agoristKenBW2 - Illustrator is for creating 2d art/cartoon/drawing, etc.06:30
Out_Coldalthough ATI sucks with support, i seem to get more out of my ATIs than my nvidias06:31
agoristunkmar - yearh, gimp came with ubuntu. I like it.06:31
d4rkfe4rI hate ATI06:31
KenBW2agorist: i always use terminal commands06:31
Out_Coldbut they work ;)06:31
KenBW2unkmar: thanks06:31
agoristWho makes the best OS X Doc type app?06:32
ardchoille!best | agorist06:32
ubottuagorist: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.06:32
unkmaragorist: you don't need to mount ISO's very often.  can usually just use the gnome archive viewer program.  I don't remember it's name.  I just doulble click from nautilus06:32
keppiGammaX: so liveboot doesn't work?06:32
GammaXlandry: Also when I go to update manager it says not all updates can be installed, when I run a partial upgrade it says could not calculate the upgrade you have held broken pachages...06:32
d4rkfe4ri use "mount" to mount iso06:32
GammaXkeppi: have no insterted the live cd yet, ive only done an online system update from 9.04 UE06:33
agoristardchoille - thanks.06:33
zcat[1]unkmar:  fileroller.. there's also an iso mounter package somewhere06:33
keppiGammaX:  I had broken packages when I installed too.  Ended up doing a clean install and everything worked fine.06:34
agoristLet me put it this way, can anyone suggest an OS X Doc type app for me? I don't know of any, but I know they exist.06:34
zcat[1]then they're just like a dmg image in osx06:34
Out_Coldugh.... people who upgrade then get broken systems whine too much... fresh installs are the way to go people..06:34
GammaXkeppi: I realy enjoy having the ultimate edition... Runs excellent! I guess I have to do a clean isntall... :(06:34
d4rkfe4rOut_Cold, how do you suggest I downgrade?06:34
GammaXOut_Cold: Im not whining... im trying to fix the problem.06:35
KenBW2Out_Cold: i agree with you on that, but ive always wondered why *should* upgrades cause problems any more than apt-get upgrades?06:35
keppiGammaX:  try the live CD first06:35
GammaXkeppi:  Roger that. Thanks ill be back to give u an update. Later06:35
keppiGammaX:  good luck06:36
vossken, It shouldnt, but upgrades should come LATER not at the same time as new versions, upgrade versions should be bug tested and stabilized06:36
agoristI notice that there are a few ways to install flash. 1) DL from Adobe, 2) install gnash, 3) Install non-free installer form synaptic , 4) install ubuntu-restricted-extras -- Which do you prefer/suggest for a new user?06:36
Out_Coldd4rkfe4r, just remove the 180 and install >18006:36
KenBW2agorist: ubuntu-restricted-extras pulls non-free anyway so theyre the same06:37
KenBW2voss: care to rephrase that?06:37
unkmaragorist: I had best luck with the Adobe version if I remeber properly.06:37
d4rkfe4rHehe ok06:37
vossken, upgrade versions need to be tested more than fresh installs.06:38
agoristKenBW2 - ahh, ok. thanks, I was wondering about that. -- unkmar: really? So can I install the ubuntu-restricted-extras w/ out non-free flash ??06:39
Out_Coldif you make a good partition scheme with a separate /, /home, /boot, and so on, installing a new release takes on a real easy task...06:39
KenBW2voss: in theory, isn't a dis-upgrade the same as apt-get upgrading *all* packages? IE the same as swapping Jaunty repos with Karmic ones?06:39
Out_Coldsame with aptoncd06:39
deviant-routehas anyone had any problems with flash when viewing youtube videos in fullscreen? mine lags alot06:39
evilGUIHello, does anyone in here know anything about ALSA and pulseaudio?06:39
macoevilGUI: depends what you want to know06:39
evilGUII'm getting this bug in virtualbox http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/285806:39

macoevilGUI: and how much of my brain you expect to function at this time of night06:40
keppideviant-route:  yeah, but my computer is really old06:40
evilGUIThe guy in the thread said a workaround is to create a .asoundrc06:40
deviant-routekeppi, how old?06:40
keppideviant-route:  how did you install flash?06:40
vossken, in theory yes06:41

evilGUIah, anyway I added this http://pastebin.com/m331848a1 which seems to have done nothing.06:41
keppivoss:  I have no idea.  But it's running an ATI radeon AGP card06:42
evilGUIUbuntu has all of the pulse plugins etc out of the box correct?06:42
KenBW2voss:  so what goes wrong06:42
keppideviant-route:  I know installing flash thru firefox installs the wrong one and is slow.06:42
agoristKenBW2: is it possible to install ubuntu-restricted-extras without installing the flash portion. PS - what do you think about Adobe's version of flash for linux. PS I'm running x6406:43
vossSomething new clashes unexpectedly with something old.06:43
spOi do patch < patchfile  and patch says it cannot find the file to patch .... but I am at the base directory ... diff --git ffmpeg-r19281/libavcodec/g729data.h ffmpeg-r19281_v181/libavcodec/g729data.h   .... i am at the base whereas if i did cd ffmpeg-r19281  i would go into that directory. I don't undrestand why patch doesn't work right06:43
deviant-routekeppi, really? i did not know that06:43
antraxsomeone know how i can read a memory address?06:43
KenBW2agorist: ive never had a problem with the Flash from the URE package06:43
keppideviant-route:  I tried that method before doing the restricted extras06:44
vossThe adobe flash plug in for linux installs easily and works fine06:44
KenBW2agorist: flashplugin-non-free *is* from Adobe you know06:44
deviant-routekeppi, what method worked best for you06:44
vossI install mine from the adobe website06:45
keppideviant-route:  the restricted extras.  in the others I had problems running flash in a window06:45
deviant-routevoss, whats your system specs06:45
agoristKenBW2: Oh, ok. So is the same as the Adobe version on their website? Will URE automatically instally the x64 version?06:45
KenBW2voss: any reason?06:45
KenBW2agorist: i dont know about x6406:45

deviant-routevoss, i guest if your not runnig a system with dual core and a good graphic card flash wont work properly06:47
totally_lost_useI've been having an issue with the last two releases of Ubuntu, every once in a while when I copy a file to a folder the contents of that folder don't load unless I re-boot my computer at which time they appear again as they should. Any ideas? Any associated bug report?06:48
zilla1I just installed 9.04, loading for the first time, and it is taking *forever*. On decent (c. 2002-current) hardware. I'm on a Mobo that requires special drivers for the SATA drive. It took a long time to load into grub, and when it did, it got to the "Boot from... ", and its now just sitting. Not sure if it will boot actually. Google didn't bring me this exact problem. Anything sound familiar?06:48
keppideviant-route:  do you have graphics acceleration?:06:48

gOLDfeeshis there a place in the system that caches packages? I'm trying to update my limewire but it keeps saying I'm downloading 5.206:52
vossalfa, you might need to set the ip address to that of the download server06:52
deviant-routekeppi, on all06:52
unkmargOLDfeesh: yes, there is.06:52
macogOLDfeesh: all packages are downloaded to /var/cache/apt/archives06:52
unkmargOLDfeesh: you can remove and then purge.06:52
gOLDfeeshunkmar, how would I do that06:52
keppideviant-route:  what kind of processor?06:52
macogOLDfeesh: if your actual question is "why is it grabbing this old version?" run "sudo apt-get update" then "sudo apt-cache policy limewire" to see what versions are available in your repositories06:53

keppivoss:  Radeon 7000 series06:54
macounkmar: any idea on which release it broke? you're going to need to narrow it down a LOT to find what broke it. there've been...10 kernel versions since 7.1006:54
McLovinagorist, yep06:54
deviant-routekeppi, intel centrino 1.70 GHz06:55
macounkmar: start with figuringout if it was 8.04, 8.10, or 9.04 that first failed06:55
totally_lost_useNo one can point me to any info on folders not showing contents after a file transfer? It has happened enough to me on several computers and versions that I thought it was a common problem.06:55
spO i do patch < patchfile  and patch says it cannot find the file to patch .... but I am at the base directory ... diff --git ffmpeg-r19281/libavcodec/g729data.h ffmpeg-r19281_v181/libavcodec/g729data.h   .... i am at the base whereas if i did cd ffmpeg-r19281  i would go into that directory. I don't undrestand why patch doesn't work right06:55
macospO: perhaps wrong patch level?06:55
McLovinagorist, it has them for x64 I just did the update 2 days ago off medibuntu06:55
macospO: -p0?06:55
keppideviant-route:  hey, we're on the same boat.06:55
unkmarmaco: I ran 7.10 until the repository moved. Then i broke my 7.10. so I was left with 2 options.  8.04 or 9.04.  I was not going to do the 8.10.  So, I have 9.04.  I can tell you what my system is.06:56
spOmaco, why do i need -p0 if i am at the base?  --git ffmpeg-r19281/libavcodec/g729data.h   < -- you see that.. there is no / at the very front06:56
unkmarmaco: Dell Inspiron 8200.06:56
agoristMcLovin - how do I add medibuntu repository -- so you suggest the package sfrom medibuntu? Everything is working for ya?06:56
deviant-routekeppi,ha what brand laptop you using?06:56
macounkmar: the only way to find out what caused it to break is to figure out when it broke, then narrow down further from there til you find the exact kernel commit that did it06:56

tmademurcherson: i read some threads on google concerning proxy seetings and problems on kde4...but those are 1 years old and now it should work!?07:18
arand_agorist: you download the libflashplugin.so file from adobe labs, and put it in that folder (create the plugins folder if it doesn't exist), make sure not to have any other flash/gnash/sfwdec installed and then restart firefox and it should run properly on 64bit flash07:18

somenameok i will install in advanced mode07:29
macoUbuntoJO: or for command line, i like irssi07:29
deviant-routekeppi, usally ise ext4 for /boot, but since ive been using ext2 my system boot alot slower07:29
kid-kuruptmaco, wgrant: not to downgrade, my ati packages seem to have a bug with suspend mode on my laptop, forums recommends downgrading those 2 packages and locking the version in synaptic07:29
Blue1UbuntoJO: irssi or xchat07:30
UbuntoJOI'm using Xubuntu 9.1007:30
anonmatirUbuntoJO: u need text or command line and windows or linix?07:30
anonmatirirssi or xchat07:30
McLovinUbuntoJO, XChat07:30
ZykoticK9UbuntoJO, i'd strongly recommend against xchat-gnome -- "xchat" is what i use but avoid the xchat-gnome!07:30
macoUbuntoJO: ok so if you want gtk stuff...again...xchat-gnome is my preference07:30
agoristmaco - thanks, because  there is no mention of x64 in the packages for flash. so i was worried ;-) last time I installed flash on a 64 bit ubuntu it didn't work very well, the video had tearing. Never got it figured out, and I thought it may have been a 32 bit plugin in a 64 bit firefox/ubuntu.07:30
UbuntoJOthanks...I'll check out irssi...using xchat now....haven't really looked at them07:30
macoZykoticK9: aw xchat-gnome has a much easier configuration window07:31
deviant-routeUbuntuJO, i would recommend irssi07:31
anonmatiri recomend against the default xchan-gnome on jaunty07:31
keppideviant-route:  ext2 has more limitations.  I think it's more prone to fragmentation as well.  You can defrag the ext2 system to see if it will boot faster07:31
macoagorist: oh well yes thats still the case07:31
macoagorist: 64bit flash is unreleased07:31
UbuntoJOXubuntu Karmic here...I'll look at them real quick....brb thanks07:31
macoagorist: but there are 32bit libraries for compatibility for 64bit and a bit of extra glue besides07:31
McLovinagorist, dept will read the kernel and only update based on the arc of the system07:31
macoagorist: which should be installed automatically07:31
deviant-routekeppi, yea i'll try doing that07:31
tmademaco: got it. dns does not work..i put in the ip :-) anyway i´d like to know in which place proxy setting is saved!?07:32
McLovinagorist, * adept i cant spell tonight07:32
macotmade: i dont know, sorry07:32
agoristmaco: what 32bit libraries are you talking about? Have you ever gotten flash to run right on a 64bit linux?07:32
tmadesomebody know in which file proxy settings are saved in?07:32
tmadeon kde07:33
macoagorist: itll automatically pull in ia32libs and nspluginwrapper and some other bits to make 32bit flash work on 64bit linux. and yes, thats what i use.07:33
deviant-routewell good night all07:33
macotmade: #kubuntu would be better. this is a gnome-centric channel07:33
agoristmaco - oh, so the 32bit libs are intalled automatically? Ok. Do you use the flashplugin-nonfree or flashplugin ??07:33

agoristMaco - and you don't get tearing? Maybe I need a nice nVidia video card or something07:33
macoagorist: if you want a native 64bit flash that can at least handle youtube (but not necessarily flahs-based games), i like swfdec07:34
macoagorist: i have intel graphics. i dont know what you mean about tearing though07:34
macoagorist: i mean....most flash videos are simply encoded really really crappily07:34
agoristmaco - i don't do flash games, or games at all really. So I can use swfdec for x64? Would I have to unintall flashplugin-nonfree then?07:34
macoagorist: yes07:34
anonmatirny one ever converted avi to vob cd's and played on home dvd?07:35
agoristmaco - do know what tearing is?07:35
macoagorist: you mean bad graphics, where its kinda chunky instead of smooth?07:35
ZykoticK9anonmatir, check out the gui program devede - very cool07:35
macoagorist: i thought flash videos on youtube and such were just *always* like that07:35
macoagorist: to make the filesize smaller07:35
anonmatirZykoticK9: thanxs!07:36
agoristmaco - tearing is specifically where you get lines across the screen when cameras pan sideways quickly and the different chunks of the screen lose sync with each other.07:36
agoristmaco - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tearing_%28simulated%29.jpg07:36

ZykoticK9leobotelho, yes i got your message(s), i've been googling without a lot of success i'm affraid.  I hope someone else in the channel reaches out to ya - cause i'm afraid I don't have anything at this time.  What scares me was searches with Wubi seemed to get quite a few "no sound" with your particular sound h/w.07:58

crazyoniNow I cannot install the 9.10 because the gui and my monitor cannot work together I'm getting an "out of sync" error message in my monitor, I tried two monitors and I've got the same issue, what seems to notice me that there is problem installing 9.10 with AGP Nvidia 760GT maybe? on VGA connection?08:01

MarkGilHi, I have a script that behaves funny on Ubuntu and Debian.   If it's launched ./myscript, it uses BASH, if someone uses sh ./myscript, it uses DASH (and breaks).  The first line of my script has; #!/bin/bash  What gives?08:15
Meowpupthat meand even ubuntu 9.04 based sidtros such as linux mint are out dated and mint 8 is not even out in full release yet.08:16
leobotelhoAm I crazy? Or I'm not having any "help" regarding my audio issue ?!?!08:16
leobotelhoI was so happy that someone was paying attention on me that I thought finally I would solve the issue08:17
Meowpupleobotelho: Do not ask to ask, just ask! We also ask that you not ask over and over again, if someone knows, they will respond. (So, yes, you may ask.)08:17
ZykoticK9MarkGil, what you said makes perfect sense.  if someone uses "sh ./myscript" they are specifically calling Dash (Ubuntu sh command)08:17
tech-mikesup peeps, just wondering if using the adobe flash 10.1 (which is x32 i think) is better than the x64 pre-release  ?08:17
MarkGilso the #!/bin/bash does nothing useful then?08:17

ZykoticK9MarkGil, it certainly does, when you just run "./myscript" it calls the correct interpreter BASH08:19
MarkGilSo I have to code a line to detect the interpreter and error if it's dash?08:19
Meowpupy is that08:19

flaggerhey guys, i'm having a bit of trouble with my postfix server.09:30
flaggerSituation is I have spam coming in, spamassassin tags them. Local procmailrc's do whatever they want with them. But our mailing list also points to people on   external servers, and we end up getting undelivered mail notifications because they block our spam. How do I get it to stop outgoing mail that has already been   tagged?09:30
Meowpupjanisozaur: what do you mean how does it do that09:30
mattcenkbp, janisozaur: Here's my justification. The repository part of the CD is inside the '/pool' directory, which on the Ubuntu Desktop CD is only 8.5MB. So while there is a repository on there, it can't be the entire Desktop environment, because that's inside a Squash filesystem in '/casper/filesystem.squashfs',09:31
kbpmattcen: so why is the desktop CD 600MB? :P09:31
ZykoticK9kane77, i think the game you're playing would require a key-scripting feature for that to work -- because your game is going to be "in focus" you can't have keys being recognized by outside programs (for the most part).  This is why Push-To-Talk doesn't work in games for TeamSpeak on Ubuntu...  best of luck man.09:31
janisozaurmattcen: you could mount squashfs and use it then ;)09:31
llutzkbp: because the live-cd part needs that space (squashfs-image)09:32
mattcenkbp: Because it's a whole filesystem inside a 668Mb file, and not individual package files you can install09:32
janisozaurMeowpup: bookmarks > manage bookmarks > importing and backups (i'm using localized version, names may vary)09:32
mattcenjanisozaur: You can't do that because they're not packages. Well you *could* but it'd be horrendously messy09:32
kbpllutz, janisozaur ok so the right thing to do is extract or mount that image and use it ?09:32

kane77ZykoticK9, ah :(09:33
llutzkbp: packages have to be in .deb format in a special directory-structure to be used as repo09:33
mattcenkbp: The right thing to do is either download the Alternate CD and use *that* as a reposotory, or install the Desktop version and add the server stuff in later on.09:33
janisozaurllutz: what's the structure in squashfs then?09:34
mattcen... or download around 300MB of Gnome/KDE other apps for the server version :S09:34
llutzjanisozaur: the live-system09:34
mattcenjanisozaur: It's the same thing you'd see if you did an ls / on your ubuntu system09:34

zashWhat debug symbols would you need to get a good compiz backtrace? Those attached to bugs #472060 and #316954 seems useless.09:43

surtI'm trying to figure out why xorg frequently hangs. I know exactly what time the event happened but /var/log/xorg.0.log doesn't have any timestamps. Is there another way to track this issue down? A different log? Add timestamps?09:47
