meowbuntuanyone know openoffice how to set nz english dictionary to be default it always comes up with usa when i spell check.00:01
meowbuntu^ i have set to NZ english in settings but dictionary is not y00:01
preecherif i do the port forwarding thing can i be able to log in from anywhere?00:01
TwoDWhy would Gedit suddenly hide all my .inc and .module files? I've got no filters on...00:01
Bridge|anyone know in vi is there a way to completely clear the line ur on and make it show it extracts that line as well(1 less line in document)??00:01
Seveaspreecher, yes00:02
aboBridgel, type dd00:02
Bridge|ok i'll try00:02
trismfdsa_: unfortunately, from my quick searches, it appears that it won't be easy to add nvidia drivers to the live cd, because even if you do, ubuntu casper will disable them on boot (it apparently does this with ati too)00:02
preecheris that something i set up on both ends?00:02
SeveasBridge|, ^D will delete contents, dd will delete the line00:02
Billiardpreecher: you might have to port forward twice with your dsl, id forward all the ports from the dsl to the router, then forward what you need from the router to your computer00:02
Bridge|THanks ssooooosssssooo much00:03
Bridge|dd is exactly what i needed00:03
fdsa_trism, im glad someone else has come to that conclusion00:03
SeveasBridge|, also: #vim :-)00:03
Billiardpreecher: only one end needs port forwarding00:03
fdsa_trism, would this be just an ubuntu or a debian issue as well?00:03
bllzis there a support channel for boxee on ubuntu?00:03
ActionParsnippreecher: you just need to set it up on the router and you can connect from ANYWHERE00:03
Seveasbllz, tried #boxee?00:03
preecherso log into my router settings?00:04
bllzSeveas:  no actually.  i tried ubuntu-boxee, but that is a good idea =)00:04
ActionParsnippreecher: use an SSH tunnel if you are connecting over WAN as there is no security in VNC connections00:04
abo\j #boxee00:04
ActionParsnippreecher: yes, you need to configure virtual server or port forwarding00:04

|COM|Styxi want to update the glib package, but the standard ubuntu package is horribly out of date00:08
ardchoille|COM|Styx: did you install it from source?00:08
Seveasdrop the 'echo' once you confermed it does what you want :)00:08
ActionParsnip|COM|Styx: find a ppa00:08
Seveasabo, sudo dmidecode00:08
MynameisHamehow do chaps, could someone gibe me a hand with folder permissions :300:08
ubottuWith Launchpad's Personal Package Archives (PPA), you can build and publish binary Ubuntu packages for multiple architectures simply by uploading an Ubuntu source package to Launchpad. See https://help.launchpad.net/PPAQuickStart.00:08
|COM|Styxaah, thank you00:08
ActionParsnip|COM|Styx: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas00:08
ActionParsnip|COM|Styx: you can use that link to search the launcpad ppas00:09
ardchoille|COM|Styx: if you've installed it from ppa and you have the ppa in your sources, then it should be seen as installed if you installed it from the ppa00:09
aboSeveas, thanks a lot, a lot of info here..00:09
Zycannot compile xfoil 6.97 on karmic.. help please..00:09
|COM|Styxis there a better way then ppas?  that seems like more than what i need00:10
|COM|Styxi just want a recent version of glib00:10
Seveas|COM|Styx, why?00:10
Dictatorhi, quick question... i just got a usb dvd drive but can't find it to add to this command sudo growisofs -use-the-force-luke=dao -use-the-force-luke=break:1913760  -dvd-compat -speed=4 -Z ??????????=deadrising.iso00:10
syn-ackSJr|nx, I run a system with EFI just fine00:10
SeveasUbuntu's glib is the most recent one00:10
ActionParsnip|COM|Styx: then if someone has compiled it you can also use it00:10
Dictatorhow can i find the usb dvd drive? is it in /dev or /media00:10
Seveasand updating glib often means updating quite a few other things as well, better upgrade your ubuntu in that case00:11
|COM|Styxi have upgraded00:11
abois there a way to upgrade the bios from within ubuntu?00:11
fdsa_anyone know of a good livecd resource (aside from the ubuntu wiki)00:11
|COM|Styxi have compiled the latest glib00:11
TcPanyone knows how to get virtual box to go fullscreen the guest pc is windows 700:11
SeveasDictator, the device node (what the kernel talks to) lives in /dev, the mount point (where your files appear) lives in /media, usually /media/dvd00:11
preecherActionParsnip, its asking me thing like what kind of service and gives choices like quake,age of empire, ftp,http and stuff like that00:11
alankilaJust measured webkit 1.1.7 from lucid against the ubuntu ppa nightly build of chromium using sunspider. http://bel.fi/~alankila/webkit-1.1.17-vs-chromium-svn20091210r34249.txt00:11

=== baba_b00i is now known as baba_B00ie
alankilathe 1.1.15 at karmic is at equal footing, they got basically the same numbers. But that was because webkit's string, regex and date functions were exceptionally slow. They have been fixed in 1.1.17, apparently, as they now are the same roughly as v8's.00:13
ActionParsnipabo: dos boot disk00:13
loshaabo: the update itself should come with instructions. Is it a mobo?00:13
syn-ackdennister, You can't..00:13

|COM|Styxgod, i hate apt00:15
loshawushu: I don't think so. But you can apt-get install ssh after booting....00:15
abolosha, ActionParsnip, what's a mobo.. sorry I'm not very familiar with the upgrade process... I'm trying to figure out what is the bios and where to find an upgrade00:15
SeveasDictator, growisofs is for creating the .iso, wodim is for burning it00:15
wushuActionParsnip, i wanna help a guy fix his grub..00:15
al2candI would like anyone to give me a good address on how to install applications to my xubuntu... I am total beginner and used windows since born...00:15

wushuand then how does he start it?00:15

ezzieyguywufabo=alien board?00:16
ActionParsnipwushu: sudo apt-get install openssh-server00:16
loshaabo: sorry, a motherboard. Bios software is very low level, usually the manufacturers instructions have to be followed very precisely to upgrade...00:16
ViridianFireI think it is causing problems00:16
DictatorSeveas, im following this guide... i couldnt find any other way to burn xbox 360 backups . http://biodegradablegeek.com/2009/03/burning-xbox-360-games-on-linux-stealth/00:16
ViridianFireand since when is something mandatory on Linux?00:16
loshawushu: yes, /etc/init.d/ssh start00:17
dennistersyn-ack: no wonder my "customer" had problems, problem is this tablet, because it's a tablet, won't be testable with a livecd in all its features00:17
SeveasViridianFire, oh, it is causing a ton of problems alright....00:17
ActionParsnipabo: you need to see what board you have then find the right bios. If you screw it up you may brick your board (no boot so cannot reinstall the old bios)00:17
wushuand what is the livecd login defaults?00:17
dennisternot as far as the wacom is concerned, anyway00:17
ViridianFireso why is it the default program if it causes problems?00:17
syn-ackdennister, heh00:17
macowushu: both "ubuntu"00:17
SeveasViridianFire, it is not mandatory for linux, but it is mandatory if you want to get any sound out of gnome and some other apps00:17
wushuill ask if something goes south00:17
Dictatoris there a way to burn xbox 360 backups on ubuntu?00:18
ViridianFirethere isnt an alternative?00:18
macoViridianFire: use kde?00:18
loshaViridianFire: try this: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/fix-for-all-pulseaudio-related-issues.html00:18
SeveasViridianFire, because the idea behind pulseaudio is good. It's just the implementation that has bugs. It's software after all so it has bugs :-)00:18
dennistersyn-ack: the reason I installed hardy in the first place was that the howtos for this model said hardy would work00:18
ViridianFirei guess00:18
ActionParsnipViridianFire: you can use OSS as an alternative00:18
ViridianFirebut my headphone jack doesnt work00:18
syn-ackdennister, sure it would. but it's a bit old. :/00:18

cn28hslackpipe, what's the only line?00:48
cn28hthat part looks fine00:49
slackpipeand then,, u, 0,0, wlan000:49
cn28hok, that looks okay too00:49
aliendude5300cn28h, yeah... but I want to everything the same and restore it easily, like firefox settings and my home folder. would copying the home folder be enough? I was thinking about installing both Ubuntu 32bit and 64bit at the same time and then deleting the 32bit when I copy everything, but it might break something. I have a 1.5TB hard drive. Space is not an issue.00:49
cn28haliendude5300, yeah, that'd be enough to save your settings and whanot00:50
Bridge|how would I echo out on a html file Welcome <USER> where USER == the current user logged in via htaccess/basic auth/apache2?00:50
cn28hslackpipe, what about tracepath
slackpipecn28h, i thought it did.  i compared it to the connectino on this computer00:50
skritealiendude5300, backup your home folder00:50
cn28hslackpipe, and the computer you're on now pings with no problem?00:51
ardchoilleBridge|: you would probably need javascript and document/write00:51
ardchoilleer document.write00:51
MTecknologyaliendude5300: don't make the copy for your home directory if you have anything running - especially firefox00:51
aliendude5300what about system packages? Is there a way to get a list of them and then apt-get install them all on the new install?00:52
aliendude5300I'm on the system I'm planning to upgrade now...00:52
bastidrazor!clone | aliendude530000:52
ubottualiendude5300: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate00:52
MTecknologyaliendude5300: is synaptic there's options to save/restore package state00:52
slackpipecn28h, it gives childsplay.local ( .06ms pmtu 150000:52

jordanwbMTecknology: I've added rules that allow tcp from any to any, and the same for udp00:57
MTecknologyb3rz3rk3r: agreed00:57
jordanwbMTecknology: I'll try again00:57
MTecknologyjordanwb: try runnign 'ufw disable' and see if the issue persists00:57
jordanwbMTecknology: My PC is no longer blocked when I disable ufw00:57
MTecknologyjordanwb: turn logging on high and check the logs00:58
slackpipecn28h, i've seen a similar probllem.  a friend of mine i talked into ubuntu had trouble when he went from dial up to dsl.  it would connect, but not use the connection.  he eventually just reinstalled and the installer picked it right up.00:58
cn28hslackpipe, have you checked dmesg for error messages? it's weird if your route is right and the other box can ping it that you can't00:58

slackpipecn28h, pinging it seems to be timing out00:59
jordanwbMTecknology: I don't see a ufw file in /var/log00:59
grendal_primeoh come on..that cant be right00:59
jordanwbmaybe because I haven't enabled ufw yet00:59
ardchoillegrendal_prime: perhaps you need development files for mono?00:59

MTecknologyjordanwb: h on01:00
cn28hslackpipe, hm, strange01:00
ardchoillegrendal_prime: yes, it is right. If it's not in the repos, there's no way to "force" it to install when it isn't there01:00
grendal_primeit seems strange that they would make a package that would require something that does not exisist01:00

tech404I'm looking for a text editor to do some reporting in. A lot of it comes from templates. Features I need: gui, split screen, templating system, spell check, tabs, snipits or programable auto-complete, and sessions. I've tried scite, gedit, and tea and none of them seem to do the whole job. Any suggestions?01:18
MTecknologyjordanwb: I would presonally suggest using pfsense or m0n0wall. Those are systems that are designed for the purpose and much more secure in that regard.01:18
jordanwbMTecknology: Okay I'll take a look at those. Thanks01:18
xandrosI have another question - I have a linux live cd which I wish to play around with, (i.e. edit it in ways I wish not to explain for it will take too long) however it only has basically 1 file, squashfs, I've done a small amount of research and I've concluded that a linux kernel is compiled into this single file...is there any way to "decompile" it and be able to edit the individual files of it?01:19
Billiardxandros: yes01:19
OctoroksHello. I am having a problem with Grub with Ubuntu 9.10. I have a Windows 7 partition that is about 100gb. I installed Ubuntu side-by-side fulling knowing that it was there. Ubuntu installed fine, but the problem was is it won't show/load my Windows partition on boot. It goes directly to Ubuntu.01:19
MTecknologyjordanwb: just fyi - pfsense is probably better for your use - m0n0wall is great but it's designed more for embedded devices01:19
xandroswell that's good news, care to elaborate?01:20
tech404Octoroks:  Have you held down shift during boot so you can get to the grub menu?01:20
MTecknologyOctoroks: grub-legacy or grub2?01:20

UmifierQuestion: Cannot find my "Marvell Yukon" Network card. I've tried everything from Ndiswrapper to the driverinstall from the marvell's homepage. My router + ISP is working. I have been googling the problem for the past 5hours and I havn't stumbled across any answer. Im using Jaunty Jackalope. Does anyone have any clue what i could do next?01:34
Pest1it was really oddd01:34
jribWolfman2000: easy to remove and do it the right way though01:34
ConcreteBurgerSo on the other computer, you can't boot into anything?01:34
rawr_wolfman: perhaps a chrontab?01:35
Wolfman2000jrib: I don't see what's wrong with using the source.01:35
Pest1just say missing os01:35
jribWolfman2000: the two advantages I just mentioned01:35
rawr_umifier: maybe if you spam your question a couple hundred more times01:35
ConcreteBurgerhmm. i see. Now, why does the USB fail, do you know?01:35
Pest1my be a bad cd ?01:35
rawr_pest1: yes what do you mean when you say it fails exactly01:35
Pest1it comes up with 3 fails01:36
UmifierRawr_: Im in desperate need :)01:36
jribWolfman2000: are you really going to monitor security lists, patch your apache and postgresql yourself when something comes up, and rebuild every time?01:36
ConcreteBurgerWould it be possible to download a fresh ISO and then try to create a liveCD with that?01:36
Pest1An uncaught exception was raised:01:36
Pest1[Errno 5] Input/output error01:36
Phuzion_Umifier what version of Ubuntu are you using?01:36
ardchoilleWolfman2000: And what about regressions?01:36
UmifierPhuzion_: 9.0401:36
Pest1the usb is 4 gb01:37
Pest1its clean01:37
Mainstaywhat's a good reverse proxy server for ubuntu01:37
Phuzion_Umifier... NDISWRAPPER shouldn't be necessary... is this a fresh insall?01:37
ConcreteBurgerIf you think the CD is at fault, it's probably best to download a new ISO01:37
Wolfman2000Let me ask this then.01:37
mizerydeariaXorg/xfce/desktop environment freezes after some time of usage.  What log file can I check to find out what is causing freeze?  I am logged in remotely?01:37
Pest1after i did the update it asked me for my pass again then went to a black sreen said a few values then said ttyl:101:38
jribWolfman2000: anyway I really really advise you to use the repositories but "/msg ubottu !boot".  If you want to use a sysv initscript, read /etc/init.d/skeleton (and use sysv-rc-conf) or for upstart, "/msg ubottu upstart"01:38
Wolfman2000If I were to choose to install PG with the package manager, would it come with the initscript?01:38
UmifierPhuzion_: I'm not really sure. I have tried the installer from Marvell's homepage, and yes. im sure its the right option.01:38
ConcreteBurgerCan you get as far as the GRUB menu?01:38
jribWolfman2000: yes01:38
moddinatijrib: Thanks I was able to fix the problem by changing the group permissions. Much Appreciated01:38
Pest1just into my bios01:38
ConcreteBurgerSo it just says Initializing GRUB and then crashes?01:38
jribmoddinati: no problem01:38
Pest1just saying missing oparting systeam01:39
ConcreteBurgerI see. Well, it seems you can't do too much without a liveCD or USB01:39
Pest1i know... :(01:39
ConcreteBurgerYou could always remove the harddrive and place it into another computer with a CD drive if you must01:40
Phuzion_Umifier you don't know if you just installed Ubuntu?01:40

ubottuPest1: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!01:42
rawr_Pest1:  saying it fails is meaningless to me.  Are you saying when you try to boot to it or what01:42
UmifierPhuzion_: Asus p5Q Premium. If that's what you're trying to ask.01:42
BilliardCowfishy: how do you determine that its corrupted?01:42
CowfishyWell, in Gparted, the thing says its corrupted. Anyway, I tried to mount it like: mount -t ext3 /dev/sdb1 /media/External01:42

ConcreteBurgerI have gotten that error before with an external harddrive. I found that reformatting it fixed the problem01:44
CowfishyIt says that the filesystem is invalied and if it is a real ext2 filesystem then to run another type of fsck01:44
jribAlan502: launchpad librarian has them (somewhere, don't ask me)01:44
Alan502jrib, is that a site or someone?01:45
Pest1when i try to make startup disk01:45
jribAlan502: launchpad.net01:45
BilliardCowfishy: i suppose you could try creating the partition with mkfs.ext301:45
ConcreteBurgerPest1: Try to drag a file onto it and see if you get the same error01:45
jribAlan502: I'm fairly certain you can find old packages there01:45
rawr_Pest1: ok see that's all i needed.  do as concrete says.  also what format do you have it in01:45
matjuBilliard: at first i got i/o errors, i unmounted, disconnected, reconnected, mounted with the drive icon, then used the «mount» command, then added «-t ext2» to see whether it's any different01:45
Phuzion_umifier... does your laptop come equipped with a wireless on/off switch?01:45
CowfishyOk. I think I did that before but I should proabably erase the drive first01:46
Alan502which is a stabler distribution than ubuntu but user friendly as well by the way?01:46
UmifierPhuzion_: It's not a laptop, its a baseunit. Wired cable, should have mentioned earlier. sorry.01:46

matjuBilliard: and then i tried dumpe2fs to find a superblock, but it complains that it can't find a valid superblock, so, i wonder, where do i go from there?01:46
CowfishyOk, it's writing some inode tables lol01:46
jribAlan502: can't get more stable than debian stable01:46
matjuBilliard: the partition table is still valid though.01:46

Mike_lifeguardHi, my flash plugin has stopped working after an upgrade. Could someone let me know a recent working version number so I can try reverting to that? (flashplugin-nonfree, I think?)02:45

dtownherohowever if you want to change stuff check out gparted02:46

Gummi_Brandon, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware/Player03:16
mattwj2002okay thanks03:17
vixermixeror would i need bind03:17
mattwj2002I am trying to use it to make a cluster03:17
Gummi_Brandon, virtualbox might also do the trick perhaps....03:17
mattwj2002does the cluster for uce work with regular 32 bit linux software?03:17
BrandonGummi_, it has to be from a repository03:17
Gummi_Brandon, doesn't virtualbox do it for you? it is in the official repo03:18
Doublethe server will still need its internal dns configured vixermixer to resolve the domain once the request hits the server03:18
BrandonGummi_, it also HAS to be  vmware player for what I'm doing. I apologize03:18
mattwj2002I love the idea of doing a cluster03:19

vixermixer<Double> oh well... i guess more playing with bind, it's just so abstract to me...03:19

woodford_do you install nvidia's dirver?03:33
syn-ackNperil, chances are, its an Conexant modem then03:34
Nperilthink i need a new one03:34
syn-ackNperil, Go to linuxant.com and follow their directions03:34
syn-ackNperil, be warned however, that that method is NOT supported by Ubuntu and that it can and may break things03:34
Nperilooohhhhhh that might be a problem03:35
woodford_lsmod |grep nvidia03:35
syn-ackNperil, Actually, I can pretty much guarantee that you're going to break Pulse Audio with that driver03:35
lwbat first It can work.but after I upgrade the system to 9.10 .there is something wrong with it03:35
Nperilso it would be better to just get a new modem03:36
syn-ackNperil, if you can find one with a UART in it that'd be great.... meaning not a freaking winmodem03:36
Nperilshouldnt be hard03:37
syn-ackNperil, Those, I hate to say are a dying breed these days03:37

rawr_soreau: tried that.  it seems whatever monitor i select as being on the left it uses as primary03:40
soreauKensey: Possible diver memory leak03:40
Kenseyobviously I need it to run whatever that is instead of compiz.real, but how?03:40
Kenseywell this is a Dell Lat with Intel graphics03:40
kijaubuntu shows blank screen after 5 min.. cannot watch videos.. really annoying.. how to fix it?03:40
Kenseyso I think it's trying to do acceleration but not AIGLX.  Or something?  Dunno really03:41
soreauKensey: on ubuntu, compiz is a script that runs compiz.real (the binary) with appropriate options based on your setup03:41
soreauKensey: So it is likely some graphics driver issue, possibly a memory leak03:42
Kenseybut why would running compiz again fix it?03:42
soreauKensey: Which graphics driver are you using?03:43
Kenseyand why would it be specific to KDE?03:43
soreauBecause kde sucks?03:43
KenseyI set it up to use AIGLX but that was like two releases ago.  I haven't actually configured it in years.03:43
FizixMmm, I'll second that soreau03:43

kijaskeet0r: i havnt tried it yet03:48
loshaskeet0r: if idx files work like other subtitle files, you don't open them directly. You open the divx file and the player looks for the same name with an .idx extension to get the subtitles....03:48
arghh2d2mheld: you cant execute just any old file like windows .exe's03:49
Kenseymheld: if it's not in your $PATH you have to specify the path to it03:49

jordan_srry i had to reboot04:22
Asad2005Rajasun: it did not work should i put http://ppa.launchpad.net instead of keyserver.ubuntu.com04:22
wizard-and-the-gdoes anyone know how to throttle the download speed in mercurial04:22
jordan_sal_:im going to reinstall it jic04:23
jordan_sal_:now what?04:24
RajasunAsad2005: No. What you need is the key. And these are store on a keyserver.04:24
sal_you have the b43, b43 legacy files in /lib/firmware and the b43fwcutter pkg?04:25
Asad2005Rajasun: why EF400C7C and not the full EC9C35EAEF400C7C04:25
RajasunAsad2005: depending on the repo, onwer may have changed hois key but not have it outdated. Your options then: 1.) if you a security conscious kind of guy, disable that repo for the time being 2.) Irnore that error04:25
sal_try thr hardware drivers again and try to activate it04:25
RajasunAsad2005: You can try with that whole string or you can just pick up the last alphanumeric characters04:26
RajasunAsad2005: You can try with that whole string or you can just pick up the last 8 alphanumeric characters04:26
Asad2005Rajasun: I have the same error with http://archive.ubuntu.com karmic-updates and security04:28
bodiI have read many forums of doing it that way, but what is really the right way yo partition like that?04:29
bodioops to04:29
RajasunAsad2005: re-run sudo aptitude update. Sometimes, it is but a transient phenomenon. Sometimes not. But I usually have no issues with the main server.04:29
Asad2005Rajasun: When i tried imort key it says key 437D05B5: "Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>" not changed04:30
starwindanyone aware if I'll have trouble if I try to dual boot between an upgraded karmic(ubuntu) using legacy grub and karmic(kubuntu) using grub 2 since its default?04:30
Asad2005Rajasun: So why it gives error when doing apt-get update04:31
RajasunAsad2005: Then it ain't an issue. Ignore. Will go away soon enough.04:31
Joshh100hey all, any of you guys familiar with a way to play .idx subtitle files in ubuntu?04:32
Joshh100I always get an error in VLC when trying to do so04:32
RajasunAsad2005: Ubuntu doesn't change its package signing key for the duration of the same release. Not a usual occurance amongst distros in general.04:32
jordan_hey so it rebooted my computer04:33
loshaJoshh100: 3rd time tonight someone's asked this. It seems to work with mplayer but not vlc...04:33
sal_what distro you running?04:33
Guest89544starwind: it shouldn't be a problem.  grub2 is different to configure, but either will work04:33
Joshh100hah yea it was me on the other comp sorry..04:33
Joshh100I cant get it to work on mplayer either04:33
jordan_just the regular ubuntu04:33
BilliardJoshh100: i think idx goes with sub, do you have both files?04:34
Joshh100I was wondering if there is a better program aside from these two04:34
Joshh100yes I do04:34
sal_yeah, but which one ..?04:34
Joshh100it works so damn easily in windows04:34
BilliardJoshh100: i would try to find some srt files, sub is crap, sir04:34
sal_hardy 8.04, etc ??04:34
Joshh100do they load in VLC?04:35
BilliardJoshh100: yes srt is text file, any decent player can use them, sub is like pictures its crap04:35

UbuntuLilyI am new to Ubuntu.  I switched my laptop from Vista (Gag) to Ubuntu 9.10.  Fresh install.  I am having issues reading DVD's.  I don't think the problem is due to CSS because 1- I installed it to no avail and 2- I tried an Unencrypted DVD.  Its strange though because when I put in a CD drive works fine, when I put in a DVD is doesn't acknowledge anything in drive04:38
bodililly do search a new driver04:39
Joshh100Billiard, this is a thing of beauty04:40
Joshh100I found a great website with a ton of subs in .srt04:40
Joshh100no problems whatsoever04:40
Joshh100stupid .idx and .sub04:40
Joshh100wtf is the point04:40

Hilikusis anyone here using or know of anyone using a SATA drive to IDE interface converter?04:40
BilliardJoshh100: yea, srts are text so they can be rendered at any font and size and stuff, sub is pictures and they are all low res04:40
UbuntuLilyDriver for DVD?04:40
BeezieHilikus, yes04:40
Hilikusif so, does ubuntu recognize them?04:40
BeezieHilikus, sorry i meant sata > usb04:41
MSKGuest89444 : thank you.. what about audio chat ?04:41
Hilikuscause AFAIK some of them are transparent, but some others need drivers04:41
UbuntuLilyBeezie - I am using one04:41
bodidriver for the drive brand and model04:41
HilikusBeezie: internal sata ?04:41
Guest89544MSK: I guess its probably just a matter of getting your mic configed04:42
loshaJoshh100: the point of .idx and .sub is that they are images, not text, so you can do any character in them, even hieroglyphics...04:42
Beezieno sorry i meant i am using a sata > usb device04:42
UbuntuLilyBodi - I didn't see one.  Its a TSSTcorp TS-L632M04:42

Beeziei wasnt asking, hiliwas asking if anyone had  sata > ide working04:43
MSKGuest89444 : Yes i have tried with kopette.. but there is only video chat and there is no audio chat. I thought some one might have come accross with this issue so i enquired here.04:43

tsunamihow can i open a shell as root?04:44
Beezietsunami, sudo su04:44
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo04:45
scunizitsunami: if you have to log in as root in a shell.. sudo -i04:45
Bondybut you can set a root password by doing a sudo passwd root04:45
scunizitsunami: are you coming from another distro?04:46
RajasunBondy: Not  recommended officially in Ubuntu.04:46
ZeroKewlhelp with audio in games has a buzzing sound with Realtek HD sound card04:47
loshaBondy: I routinely do that, although it's considered heresy...04:47
scunizitsunami: ah.. no wonder you asked.. sudo is the norm with ubuntu.. there are a few instances you have to be logged in as root to get a package installed or configured.. but that's pretty rare.. sudo works fine for 99% of the time04:47
ZeroKewlany fix on the sound04:48
loshascunizi: the only time it's ever mattered to me is when fsck fails during boot. You need a root password to get into single-user mode...04:48
=== dabossbv1 is now known as dabossbv
arghh2d2tsunami: you can try sudo xterm if your in windows04:49
arghh2d2errr in X, fsck windows04:49
ZeroKewli went as far as installing the sound driver from realtek site04:49
greezmunkeylosha, regarding root then, wouldn't it use the same password that sudo uses?04:49
ZeroKewland it still does it04:49
isolat3dsh33panyone uses the drawer on the panel? It's amazingly slow. =_=04:49
jordan_according to this site http://linuxwireless.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 my wireless card isnt supported04:49
loshagreezmunkey: No. sudo wants your user password. Logging in as root requires the root password. Two separate things...04:50
scuniziisolat3dsh33p: sometimes.. although on my hardy install it's pretty quick.. how's the rest of your graphics?04:50
Bondyjust do a sudo su greezmonkey04:51
greezmunkeylosha, then it would probably be a good idea to give it a password then, I honestly don't remember setting one during install - now second guessing that...04:51
Bondyubuntu randomly generates root pass04:51
loshagreezmunkey: officially, I have no opinion on the matter...04:52
scunizigreezmunkey: you wouldn't have on install.. it doesn't ask..04:52

greezmunkeyI didn't think so, (thought I was crazy for a sec..) So if the drive gets borked, and fsck needs to be implemented what's the proceedure? Use the install cd and the tools there?04:53
jordan_aawww crap i shelled out alot of money for this wifi card04:53
Bondy!root password04:54
ubottusudo is a command to run programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)04:54
scunizijordan_: sometimes cheap is better04:54
loshaEntelin: apparently not. You can go the other way ext2 -> ext3 -> ext4 but not backwards...04:54
BilliardEntelin: what is your ultimate goal in doing this?04:54
jordan_sometimes windows is better04:54
hitek88I have installed GRUB to the MBR of my USB drive, and I know grub looks for a few different files when loading. Is it possible to create a small partition that hosts these files without having any OS installed?04:54
sal_that sounds about right.  i'ld get yourself a $5 card on ebay  the d-link gwl-650 has worked good for me04:54
RiotingPacifistcoz_: try export DISPLAY=:0 ; kdesudo -u gdm gnome-control-center04:55
scunizijordan_: *not* .. just better supported by mfger's of equipment..04:55
sal_sometimes older hardware is better .. like my truck!04:55
coz_RiotingPacifist,  ok will do that now04:55
loshajordan_: do what everyone else does. Unload it on ebay for more than you paid and then scour newegg for a card that's known to work...04:55
EntelinBilliard, well I dual boot this system for gaming, ive got 3 hard drives,  one 1.5 TB drive, and two 400 gig's one for windows, one for linux,  and the 1.5 tb drive to be shared where most all the data will be04:55
jordan_ok thanks04:55
R1_Can someone please help me check this  out? I'm pretty sure someone experienced will require no effort answering this =/04:55
EntelinBilliard, windows can mount ext2, theres nothing for ext4 however04:55
ath_don't ask to ask R1_04:56
scuniziR1_: answer what?04:56
isolat3dsh33pscunizi: nope, ati radeon HD04:56
sal_jordan.  ditto losha.  research cards and find one known to work well under linux, then find that one04:56
ath_Entelin, can also mount ext3.04:56
R1_My question:  I don't know what was removed and why these were removed when I tried to install rdesktop  (sudo aptitude install rdesktop) :  http://pastebin.com/d72ad7dbf04:57
scuniziisolat3dsh33p: no experience with ati unfoutunately.. but if everything else works well it's probably not the driver.04:57
BilliardEntelin: you might be able to mount ext4 as ext2 somewhat as read only, but im not sure04:57
R1_I wanted to know if I screwed something up by using aptitude install rdesktop04:57
isolat3dsh33pscunizi: yeah, maybe the panel is just buggy.04:57
BeezieR1_, how so?04:57
dtownheroR1_: no.04:58
minewindows can mount ext2?  are you sure  ,how to04:58
coz_well that diditn work either04:58
Beeziemine, might need a driver but yeah win32 talks to ext2/304:58
R1_How come all those things were removed then? When I typed in the command. Just wondering04:58
scuniziR1_: nope.. but there is a remote desktop app already installed.. typically04:58
Billiardmine: not out of the box you need a download to do it04:58
EntelinBilliard, you can somewhat but you have to turn off any ext4 specific features,  so why not just run ext2.  Thats the same for ext3 i think as well04:58
bastid_raZorhttp://www.fs-driver.org/  mine04:58
Bondywould you trust windows with your Linux partitions?04:58
ath_mine: yes, and ext3, but with 3rdparty support04:58
R1_scunizi, can I used this app to connect to my windows 7 remote desktop?04:58
BeezieBondy, sure.. if the driver is mature04:58
EntelinBondy, its more a mater of necessity than anything :/04:59
dtownheroR1_: yes.04:59
BilliardEntelin: i would use ntfs or something for a shared partition, linux and ntfs is much better than windows and ext04:59
R1_!remote desktop04:59
Entelinlol im not sure about that...04:59
dtownheroR1_: type in terminal rdesktop -g 1024x768 ipaddressofserver04:59
R1_dtownhero, thanks i was just going to google it05:00
BondyI agree with Billard use ntfs on my external drives that need to be used in Linux and Windows05:00
dtownheroR1_: I use it all the time at work05:00
dtownheroR1_: the -g is geometry of desktop I.E. size05:00
R1_dtownhero, says connection reset by peer =/05:00

[BNC]Dessan, i dunno how to set mysub.example.com to my virtual machine.05:12
Alan502where can i launch programs? other than alt+F2 and the menu bar05:12
bastid_raZor[BNC]: possibly ask in #wmware05:12
cn28hfrom a terminal05:12
michaeldtownhero, do you know this error maybe? ;) "not using locking for read only lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock" and "unable to rite to /var/cache/apt/"05:12
Dessan[BNC], so your VM has its own IP address on the internet? not a shared one internally?05:12
dtownheroAlan502: type <programname> in terminal05:13
[BNC]ummm nop05:13
dtownheroAlan502: I.E. netbeans in terminal05:13
michael[BNC], aptitude started to ork, but err http://ca.archive.ubuntu karmic/main05:13
[BNC]just 192.x05:13
perithhow do i get to the gui for packages i installed? i dont see it anywhere. i.e. i installed ClamAV, gufw, rkhunter, chkrootkit. are these all term cmds?05:13
loshamichael: did you forget to run as root (sudo)?05:13
dtownheromichael: I do not recommend installing video drivers while X is running.05:13
[BNC]michael, check the /etc/apt/sources.list (if remember good)05:13
scuniziperith: yep05:13
michaellosha, no, but sudo and sudo su have not asked for P05:13
Bondyrkhunter and chkrootkit dont have gui05:13
Alan502dtownhero, i installed netbeans but typing "netbeans" in the terminal says the program is not installed. Althought, when i run the netbeans installer again the instaler says netbeans is already installed05:14
loshamichael: sudo remembers your password for a short time to save typing. But you definitely have some kind of problem....05:14
michael[BNC], what code do i use to open?  probably not gedit if im just in x05:14
perithbondy: so rkhunter and chkrootkit i will need to make a term launcher w/ that cmd?05:14
dtownheroAlan502: I don't know what netbeans is, perhaps you could enlighten me and I could assist further.05:14
[BNC]cd /etc/apt05:14
ath_anyone else having problems with proprietary ATI driver 9-11 on 2.6.31-16?05:14
[BNC]then nano05:14
michaeldtownhero, maybe "x" isn't the right word ... i just have no visual session, just terminal05:14
ath_eg ubuntu 9.1005:15
dtownheromichael: that makes more sense05:15
Bondyperith you need to run them fom a terminal either directly or via a sh scipt05:15
michaeldtownhero, what is that called?05:15
Alan502dtownhero, ok i'll tell you if i solve my problem. Netbeans is a IDE by the way.05:15
michaeldtownhero, shell?05:15
dtownheromichael: so you have a shell script for the driver install?05:15
dtownheromichael: yes.05:15
Bondydo a man rkhunter05:15
michaeldtownhero, i uninstalled them to try and re-install a new one to fix some issues, but accidentally unistalled both, so no i just have shell05:16
michaeldtownhero, and trying to reinstall the same one i was using gives me those errors i mentioned05:16
peepshow can I find what package an exectutable is from?05:16
dtownheroAlan502: I still don't understand what netbeans is, are you saying it is a development environment?05:16
scunizimichael: I missed it.. what did you uninstall?05:16
michaeldtownhero, aptitude install xserver-xorg-video-all ends with error "could not resolve 'ca.archive.ubuntu.com"05:16
michaelscunizi, video cards :(05:16
loshamichael: the lock file message usually means you've left apt running somewhere....05:16
dtownheromichael: you likely already have xorg installed05:16
michaellosha, just started the shell :(05:17
dtownheromichael: from term type sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop05:17
scunizimichael: nvidia? and did you initially install the driver from their site or the one supplied by ubuntu?05:17
Alan502dtownhero, yes it is a development environment05:17
dtownheroscunizi: he's installing intel drivers05:17
Alan502dtownhero, do you know how can i remove programs?05:18
dtownheroAlan502: ok05:18
Alan502dtownhero, is it enough with just deleting its folders?05:18
michaelscunizi, intel, yes it 'worked' on base install, just trying to fix some choppy errors05:18
scunizidtownhero: oh.. no experience there.. sorry michael05:18
Samual-UbuntuHey I installed the 180 nVidia drivers from Hardware Drivers, and now I cannot start Compiz as I get this message: Checking for texture_from_pixmap: Segmentation fault05:18

Omen_20hi. can u use a normal image file to install from a pendrive, or do you need a special image file?05:18
Samual-UbuntuI would have installed the latest from the nVidia website, but my TTY consoles do not work :P05:18
michaeldtownhero, said use 'service gdm stop' so i did and "stop: unkown instance:"05:19
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: get the 185 drivers recommended and tested by the ubuntu team05:19
Alan502dtownhero, i did not install netbeans from synaptic; will that still work?05:19
dtownheromichael: ignore what it says05:19
macomichael: that means gdm was already not runnig05:19
dtownheroAlan502: no.05:19
dtownheromaco: no it does not.05:19
macodtownhero: no?05:19
Alan502dtownhero, do you know how can i remove the program then?05:19
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero,  Where? And can I install them without closing an X session? (Or rather, stopping GDM)05:19
macodtownhero: whats it mean then?05:19
dtownheromaco: no, it means that the service stop package is not accurate05:20
michaeldtownhero, aptitude intall xserver-xorg-video-intel-2.4 gives "segmentation fault"05:20
macodtownhero: thats what service tells me when i try to stop kdm or network-manager and theyre not running05:20

Alan502dtownhero, yes05:27

Alan502dtownhero, im using netbeans instead of netbeans-6.7.105:27
Alan502but still05:27
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, where can I find the 185 drivers? And can I install them without closing an X session? (Or rather, stopping GDM)05:27
Beezie!ask | powdermilk05:27
ubottupowdermilk: 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. :-)05:27
michaeldtownhero, negative05:27
Alan502dtownhero, typing netbeans-6.7.1 says "command not found"05:28
michaelhow do i connect to the internet in shell?05:28
BrandonGuest89544 : yes, because it's required for a project05:28
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: yes, you can. Try Menu > Admin > Hardware drivers05:28
amikropI am using Firefox 3.5.5 and I cannot set Tools->Preferences->Privacy->Use custom settings for history05:28
Beeziemichael, what do you mean?05:28
dtownheroAlan502: do a sudo find / -name netbeans05:28
michaelBeezie, can't ping any sites, i think maybe it's just not 'turned on'?05:28
amikropI mean, when I set it, it gets to its old value when I close the option box05:28
dtownheromichael: sec05:28
amikropany help, please?05:28
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, I don't see 185 in there, only 180 -- I guess this is where I mention i'm only on 9.04 :P You see, I don't particularly like 9.10 due to it's switch to Grub205:28
Beeziemichael, what does ifconfig say?05:29
michaelBeezie, in gnome it automatic, but is there a step to do in shell?05:29
dtownheromichael: yes, that's you man. Fix your internetz.05:29
Tapout2What is the best location to put a 'route add default...' line in ubuntu?  /etc/rc.local?05:29
Guest89544Brandon: wouldn't you have to install wine, then install vmware into that?  can't you just use virtualbox?05:29
jaymz281Hey there people05:29
michaelBeezie, lo, inet addr:
powdermilkok, im having a problem with my sata dvd drive. when i do a dmesg i get a bunch of messages starting with "ata3.00: status: { DRDY ERR }"05:29
powdermilkit really plugs up my log05:29
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: go with 180 and there is a really good reason you want the ubuntu install rather than a package install from the video card manufacturer I can explain if you like05:29
Beeziemichael, u dont see eth0 or wlan0 ?05:29
BrandonGuest89544, vmware player is also supported in linux...05:29
michaelBeezie, no05:29
BrandonGuest89544 it has to be vmware player, not virtualbox.05:30
dtownheromichael: that is a loopback address dudde05:30
digitalaxispowedermilk: This is ubuntu support, if your having hardware issues please use a hardware support IRC05:30
scunizidtownhero: Samual-Ubuntu the 190 drivers are pretty quick05:30
Beeziemichael, what type of network card? on board or pci/?05:30
michaelBeezie, im definitely connected tho, was just using windows on dual boot05:30
Guest89544oh geez, then i've been away too long05:30
dtownheroyou ain't getting nowhere except localhost with that05:30
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, I know the reason -- You then have to recompile for every time you change your kernel -- I know this, because this is why I changed to the ubuntu ones.05:30
Alan502dtownhero, it should take a while right?05:30
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: you got it brother05:30
Beeziemichael, so it works in win but not ubuntu?05:30
michaeldtownhero, dont see loop addy ... "UP loopback running" and "link encap:local loopback"05:30
loshapowdermilk: are you sure your hardware is ok? I've never gotten those messages from a healthy dvd drive....05:30
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, but well, still, with the 180 ones I can't start compiz05:30
dtownheromichael: do ping localhost05:31
michaelBeezie, worked in ubuntu fine, and on live disk, just not in shell05:31
dtownheroand it will resolve to your
michaeldtownhero, orks05:31
michaeldtownhero, works05:31
Beeziemichael, so gnome the net works but not shell??05:31
dtownheroI know05:31
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, It comes up complaining about texture_from_pixmap segmentation faults.05:31
minehow to remote desktop to windows  in vmware05:31
michaeldtownhero, how do i cancel ping LOL05:31
Beezietctrl c05:31
dtownheromichael: ctrl + c05:31
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: ick man05:31
powdermilklosha: yes the drive is fine, this started when i updated to the karmic beta05:31
michaelBeezie, yes, but i have no gnome b/c i uninstalled my vid cards, and trying to reinstall via shell but no inet05:31
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, ick? That doesn't sound good :(05:32
Beeziemichael, what type of network card? on board or pci/?05:32
scunizimine: is windows the host? or the guest?  what's running in vmware?05:32
michaelBeezie, board i think05:32
powdermilklosha: i have seen others with this problem but there fixes dont work05:32
michaelBeezie, laptop05:32
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: you can try to skip thru it or you can head to nvidia.com and get that 180 driver and install from shell05:32
Beeziemichael, what does lspci tell you? it see the card?05:32
mineubuntu running in vmware05:32
michaelBeezie, lspci says broadcom bcm4401-bo05:32
Beeziemichael, lspci |grep Ethernet05:32
purveshhey ubuntu 9.04 is better or ubuntu 9.10 ?05:32
scuniziSamual-Ubuntu: if you go to nvidia might as well install the latest.. 180 was "ok" but had issues.05:32
Samual-UbuntuSkip through what?05:32
michaelBeezie, for 'ethernet controller'  not sure exactly what im looking for tho05:33
Beeziepaste the command i mentioned05:33
dtownheromichael: or you can edit the rc3.d *stickes* to dhcp05:33
Bondyyou might need the broadcom propiertry driver (sp)05:33
michaelBeezie, yup, that ... can't separate compe05:33
scunizimine: so you want to use ubuntu in the vm to remote into the windows host?05:33
BeezieBondy, ahhh ive heard about that05:33
michaelBeezie, broadcom copr bcm4401-BO 100base-tx05:33
Guest89544mine: use remote desktop.  its in the internet menu05:33
Beeziemichael, Bondy had a suggestion05:34
loshapowdermilk: sorry, I don't see anything like that in current karmic. Are you updated to most current?05:34
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, i'll pastebin the output of compiz --replace. http://pastebin.com/m5132819f05:34
perithi'm trying top open /var/log/rkhunter/log w/ gedit, but it says i dont have permissions. how do i enable that?05:34
minehow set it to work05:34
powdermilklosha: yes, all updated05:34
michaelBondy,  Beezie, i dont think so ... like i said live disk, and ubuntu works just fine ... but i just uninstalled my video card so now only have shell and now only have this problem05:34
BrandonGuest89544 do you know what to do?05:34
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: yeah dude your xorg.conf is hosed, if you get the 180 drivers and reinstall from shell it should prompt to replace05:34
Beeziemichael, thats as far as i can help i dont know it well enough :/05:35
scunizimine: I've had issues doing that in virtualbox and don't remember if I tried when I was using vmware .. I believe it depends on the network connection type.. if it's NAT for the vm then ubuntu may have a different subnet.. if it's bridged it should be on the same subnet.. you might ask in #vmware05:35
powdermilklosha: also it doesnt give the messages when there is a cd present in the drive05:35
michaelBeezie, Bondy, i remember doing some playing with backtrack where i had to 'turn on' the card ... or am i wrong?05:35
michaelBeezie, well thanks for the help anyway ;)05:35
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, well, I edit my xorg.conf file manually, are you saying it's a matter of an option that I have set which is incorrect? Perhaps I should try commenting out some of the options i've done.05:35
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: you could *maybe* get by it by editing xorg.conf and adding xgl into driver type05:35
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, or rather, i'll pastebin my xorg.conf file so you can see....05:35
michaelBeezie, i guess i could load live cd, and download the file, then install it ... could try that05:36
purveshhey ubuntu 9.04 is better or ubuntu 9.10 ?    ,purvesh05:36
mineok  it is nat05:36
loshapowdermilk: sorry, dunno. Try googling the model number & see if anyone else reports anything...05:36
scunizimine: switch to bridged and try again05:36
michaelisn't there a shell command to 'turn on' and 'turn off' wlan05:36
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, an interesting note: I'm using Xinerama with 3 monitors and xserver-xgl to accomplish Compiz on all three monitors... IT's not exactly the most clean thing in the world.05:36
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: I play wow and tf2 on my linux box via crossover and I'm saying that if I were you I'd reinstall 180 via shell and replace xorg.conf with what the shell script generates05:36
cn28hmichael, ifconfig05:37
michaelcn28h, yes, then?05:37
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: holy shit, I have probs with my xinerama and dual monitor05:37
cn28hmichael, you can use it to put the interface up or down.. it has a number of options, check the man page05:37
michaelcn28h, ifconfig just shows 'lo'05:37
Billiardmichael  ifconfig interface up|down05:37
michaelcn28h, right, thanks05:37
cn28hthen that's the only interface that's currnetly up05:37
dtownherohow the hell are you running desktop effects to begin with?05:37
perithhow do i enable higher permissions on gedit to open log files or whatnot? do i have to go to term and "sudo gedit <file>" or is there a way from gedit gui?05:37
minein vmware can we mount a really disk ?05:37
cn28hmichael, ifconfig -a lists all interfaces05:37
Billiardperith: gksudo gedit file05:37
scunizimine: "really disk" ?05:38
scuniziBrandon: yeessss05:38
minein the host05:38
perithbilliard: so no way to do it from gedit itself?05:38
dtownheroSamual-Ubuntu: sounds like I could take a few lessons from you man :(05:38

dtownheroI hate being one upped05:38
Brandonscunizi, you seem to know about vmware and such...can you help me with my issue as well?05:38
Tapout2VNC only loads when I login, anyway to get it to load before I login?05:38
Billiardperith: not that i know of05:38
Guest26327last night, I found that my system(ubuntu 9.10 ) can't use the command "ping" ,and it returns "sendto:Permission denied". i have typed "sudo " and logined in "root",but it didn't work.who can tell me what's wrong happened?05:38
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, well.... Yes... it took me months to finally get xserver-xgl working on all three monitors... Then I noticed that my kernel had a bug with tty servers, and the only way to fix it was upgrading to a new kernel.. And well....05:38
Samual-UbuntuGoing to a new kernel meant ditching the old (WORKING) drivers05:38
scuniziBrandon: I don't know..what's your issue?05:38
michaelcn28h, eth0 and wlan0 are now in ifconfig, but still can't ping ... could you help, or no?05:38
dtownheroyep I know exactly05:38
BilliardGuest26327: can you ping with sudo, also please change your name05:39
Samual-UbuntuAnd........................ Basically, I feel like cutting my wrists right now05:39
minehow to  if i dont install vmtool in ubuntu05:39
Samual-UbuntuOr going back to Windows05:39
brutusi686 means 64 bit right?05:39
Samual-UbuntuWhich, that's basically the same thing05:39
dtownherothat's why I was saying about using their approved drivers, to be honest I was surprised you knew the reason why05:39
scunizimine: time to ask in #vmware..05:39
dtownheronow I understand05:39
cn28hmichael, -a lists them whether they are up or down.. you need to bring it up.. and if you'r using wlan0 you need to associate with an AP and probably use DHCP before you'll be able to ping anything05:39
BilliardGuest26327: or did you try sudo ping, not sure what you tried with sudo05:39
Samual-Ubuntudtownhero, i've been using Linux a while -- but, some times even the experienced people need help from even more experienced people :P05:40

dtownheroall I can say is good luck05:40
perithusing rkhunter, i got warnings for /user/bin/unhide and /usr/sbin/unhide-linux26, what do they mean? i get that the file exists on system but not present in rkhunter.dat file. nothing to worry about?05:40
Brandonscunizi: allow me to explain. I'm making a custom ubuntu live cd with vmware player installed. it has to be vmware player. not virtual box. I'm at the point of installing software following the live cd guide on the ubuntu website, but, I can't access the file from the shell I'm using as I chroot to the livecd mount I'm using to customize. if I open up another shell and run the installer,...05:40
Brandon...it's only going to install it to my host system that's making the file, and not to the livecd mount that I'm working with.05:40
dtownherocause you've got me with that setup05:40
Samual-UbuntuAh well, that's more than what Google said05:40

jozefkhow can I change that shortcuts?06:19
bodican someone help with this06:20
khaladu_kjBilliard: yes06:20
lstarneskhaladu_kj: you have the 32-bit version06:20
Billiardkhaladu_kj: there is a max ram limit, and that is it06:20
cheekoBilliard: any other06:20
lstarneskhaladu_kj: you should probbaly install the 64-bit (amd64) version of ubuntu06:20
mineis that wubi only can be runned in windows06:20
khaladu_kjlstarnes, Billiard: i thought its 4 gb for 32 bit os!06:20
lstarneskhaladu_kj: it might be less06:20
Billiardcheeko: virtualbox, but you wont get good video performance, you could try the wine beta repository also, i found it works better06:20
Draakehow come when i change the /etc/motd .. it is auto changed right back to what it was?06:20
lstarnesDraake: edit /etc/motd.tail06:21
khaladu_kjI will try 64 bit ubuntu .. then06:21
khaladu_kjthanx .. :)06:21
chemjeffHi all, I would like to swap two partitions on my hard drive, the /opt and the /tmp partitions, how can I do that?06:21
Billiardkhaladu_kj: its its 4GB minus some because it needs some of the address space for other stuff06:21
lstarnesamikrop: once you file it, give me a link to it06:21
leaf-sheepkhaladu_kj: You could install the server kernel.  That would works too.06:21
amikroplstarnes: sure06:21
amikroplstarnes: hmm, some developer told me not to file a bug report06:22
Billiardkhaladu_kj: yea you could try the pae kernel, but if you have a 64 bit cpu i would use 64 bit os06:22
meowbuntucheeko, wine can only run simple windows apps. there is another emulator (cant remember the name) but i think you have to pay for it06:22
meowbuntu^ hold on06:22
cheekoBilliard: wht leaf-sheep was telling abt dual boot06:22
greezmunkeyman this OS rocks, I didn't even _need_ to install a swap partition!06:22
nikhil_meowbuntu: cedega06:22
IdleOnemeowbuntu: cedega06:22
Billiardcheeko: installing windows on another partition06:22
amikroplstarnes: I will keep you up to date06:22
nikhil_IdleOne: ;)06:22
khaladu_kjleaf-sheep: what will server kernel do..?06:23
leaf-sheepcheeko: When you start up the computer, you have the option to start Ubuntu or to start Windows 7.  That's dual boot.06:23
Billiardkhaladu_kj: server kernel has pae, its like a hack to use more ram06:23
Draakehow do i take off "0 packages can be updated" ...... etc as well on the MOTD?06:23
meowbuntucheeko, take a look at cedega http://linux.about.com/gi/o.htm?zi=1/XJ&zTi=1&sdn=linux&cdn=compute&tm=13&f=00&su=p284.9.336.ip_p504.1.336.ip_&tt=2&bt=1&bts=1&zu=https%3A//wiki.ubuntu.com/Cedega06:24
cheekoleaf-sheep: got it06:24
lstarneskhaladu_kj: the server kernel has some options tailored for use in webservers06:24
meowbuntucheeko, what game you looking to play06:24
lstarneskhaladu_kj: for some things, like many desktop applications, there may be decreases in performance06:24
minewhat is the difference between  ubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-dvd06:24
meowbuntucheeko, the latest game06:24
khaladu_kjBilliard: that seems ideal ...  but .. it wont affect..  any other functionality right?06:25
lstarneskhaladu_kj: however, server applications will have better performance06:25
cheekoso wud it work06:25
chemjeffHi all, I would like to swap two partitions on my hard drive, the /opt and the /tmp partitions, how can I do that?06:25
cheekomeowbuntu: and wht abt virtualbox06:25
lstarnescheeko: change their mount points in /etc/fstab06:25
leaf-sheepkhaladu_kj: http://tinyurl.com/8k4run and http://tinyurl.com/yee6r4w -- Using native amd64 would be the better solution but if you don't want to reinstall and go amd64 at the moment, then use server pae kernel.06:25
lstarnescheeko: virtualbox requires you to install windows in it06:25
chemjefflstarnes, I did that but then when I rebooted I got Gnome configuration file errors06:26
meowbuntucheeko, not sure. wine is a long shot. for latest games. try the link to cedega i posted ^06:26
khaladu_kjleaf-sheep : im using core2duo06:26
cheekolstarnes: but tht wud make botht os slow06:26
DraakeSpeaking of emulators.. what would be best for "WoW"?06:26
leaf-sheepmine: Multiple languages in Ubuntu DVD.06:26
lstarnescheeko: not necessarily06:26
Billiardchemjeff: do have have data on them?06:26
lstarnescheeko: virtualbox is usually very fast06:26
chemjeffBilliard, there's no data on the /opt partition, and no permanent data on the /tmp partition06:26
khaladu_kjleaf-sheep: i doubt amd64 will work on core2duo .. fine.. will it?06:26
meowbuntucheeko, you need minimum of 1 gig 2 prefered for vbox06:26
chemjeffBilliard, just whatever is used for the current session06:27
cheekolstarnes: but i have very less ram thts the prob06:27
lstarneskhaladu_kj: it will06:27
Billiardchemjeff: just swap the fstab mount mounts06:27
Billiardmount ponts*06:27
lstarneskhaladu_kj: it will work on most 64-bit intel-like processirs06:27
Billiardpoints* jeeze sorry06:27
chemjeffBilliard, I did that but I get Gnome configuration file errors06:27
leaf-sheepkhaladu_kj: That is fine. If your computer have 64bit processor, then it should work.  This will be useful if you're doing heavy processing like DVD encoding or video editting or audio editting, etc.06:27
chemjeffBilliard, when I restart06:27
meowbuntucheeko, do you have a copy of windows handy06:27
Billiardchemjeff: errors?06:27
leaf-sheepkhaladu_kj: Take the advantage of your hardware. ;)06:27
cheekomeowbuntu: yes06:27

Alan502Does anyone recommend a download manager other than flash got or Kget for kubuntu?06:28

DraakeBilliard, i tried wine  1.2 and it wouldn't complete the installation it downloaded up to 95% and froze.. boy was i mad!06:28
chemjeffBilliard, I don't remember precisely, but I know it said that something failed a sanity check and exited with error 25606:29
BilliardDraake: you added the wine beta repository?06:29
Draakei let the package install everything.. it was like 7 packages06:29
Billiardchemjeff: and putting the partitions back removes the error?06:29
chemjeffBilliard, yes06:29
BilliardDraake: try adding the wine beta repository06:29
cheekomeowbuntu: wen i keep windows as host orerating system ubuntu gives aprob06:29

DraakeSnausages, it lights up.. but i can't feel it spinning..06:40
Billiardcheeko: you wont be able to run games well in win4lin probably, if thats what you are trying to do06:40
minewhat do you mean06:40
Zsocii would like to install from source and want to make ./configure easyer.06:40
DraakeSnausages, actually yes it spins06:41
SnausagesDraake: it might be power starved- USB drives are finicky like that.  maybe try it on another port, or on a powered hub06:41
Zsocito autoinstall all dependencies06:41
meowbuntucheeko, thats another option just remember that windows will not run 100% afficient installed like that. native dual boot is best06:41

zetheroo1here is the output of me trying to reinstall grub to /dev/sda2 http://pastebin.com/m47c348dc07:32
echotonehow would i go about fixing x problems?07:32
Billiardechotone: there is an option when installing via the alternate cd, you should use the desktop cd if you are a novice07:32
FlannelBilliard: That's not relevant to the problems he's having at all.07:32
Tina-zetheroo1: why not set it to mbr?07:32
echotonethe desktop cd wont boot. thats why i made the alternate cd in the first place07:32
zetheroo1Tina-: I have no idea ... I am just following the Ubuntu Documentation on the topic07:33
Flannelechotone: You probably have to reconfigure it or something, I'm not up on the new X stuff, so I unfortunately can't help you.  Someone else here should be able to07:33
echotonethanks anyways flannel. i'll keep working on it07:33
Tina-it is a bad idea to do thing when you have no idea :o07:33

bgoldsmithgreetings - HP Minitower 7500 core2duo, trying to install ubuntu server 9.10 64bit with RAID 1 on two identical 500GB drives. (first time installing RAID) I now have a box that does not boot OR go into the BIOS setup or boot menu, and does not boot from the installer USB drive. BIOS enables VGA and shows the inital splash graphic and hence goes to a blank screen with E2 on it. Googling for the error code didn't help.07:54
Draakewhat is the difference between the Netbook Remix and the Regular version anyways? I thought Netbook Remix was for laptops, thats why I installed that version :-\07:54

mylisto2hey all08:05
_Agent86_I can access it from minicom just fine, but when I use tiny serial, opening the first time gives perfect read/write, but after exit, can't connect again to that device (no hangup, I think).08:05
=== Mud is now known as Guest70307
_Agent86_I don't have that problem with minicom, so its obviously doing something different.08:05
ianyikoswould it be dh-make-perl?  i think the program uses perl, but i'm not sure.08:05
_Agent86_So, I need to incorporate that into my program (so not just read/write like file, has to close properly so can be reopened) so if it needs to close and reopen the connection, it can do so.08:06
sal_justin. what kind of device are you trying to set up?08:06
suwroianyikos: dh-make, debhelper, devscripts, fakeroot, pbuilder, debian-policy - I think that's it08:07
Flannel_Agent86_: Just closing it 'properly' via the program should be enough (again, just like a file) as far as I'm aware.08:07
_Agent86_I tried to pick through minicom's source to see what its doing, but no go08:07

g3ntl3g1antardchoille: sound still not working10:08
kane77nibbler, and how do I do that? (repair grub) I am using grub 2 btw..10:08
nibblerZsoci, ok, that means you want to build an apt-package, which is not trivial. maybe try searching ppa for this program - possibly someone else did the work already (but this would involve trusting this random person)10:08
KartagisI ssh to my box at home, after a while of idling, the process freezes, so I try closing the terminal tab and it says a process is still running10:09
Kartagiswhat is this?10:09
MyLittleCoderanyone here know their way around fontconfig? i am trying to enable bitmap fonts under hardy. i found several howtos, but all of them require you to be super user, which i am not. is there some way to accomplish this through ~/.fonts.conf?10:09
nibblerkane77, no idea, usually you mount your normal system and chroot to it, and then use grub-install etc10:09
kane77nibbler, ok, I'll try to figure something out :)10:09
Zsocimaybe checkinstall would be better.thank you very much.10:09
kr_217how to load ppolicy.schema in ldap?10:10
nibblerKartagis, this is maybe some firewall inbetween dropping the connection. try to set keepalives in /etc/ssh/ssh_somethingclientish.conf10:10
nibblerkane77, good luck10:10
Kartagisnibbler, it doesn't drop, it just freezes10:10
Zsocii mean there are programs that are not so popular,and have to build for myself.but sure the first thing i google on it :)10:11
nibblerKartagis, yep the drop is not noticed, as the server thinks there is just no packet coming etc10:11
