loshaal_: using checksums is very slow & expensive. Most people just use file size and modification date (which is the default). Check the man page for the gory details. Also, check out various schemes for backup...00:00
mkahi henrique00:00
mkahi mezimezim00:00
al_losha: right. The GUI of the NAS might be using checksums because its horribly slow. Thats why I want to cron my own rsync00:00
henriqueHi mka00:01
Scuniziwow.. bittorrent downloads of ubuntu iso's are *fast*!  Looks like 7 minutes for an entire iso00:01

philabolecan anyone help me with ubuntu 9.04, i got some probs00:05
blackest_knighthmm i just noticed happy new year00:05
mister_robotoal_: i'm actually curious to know if you can get that scheme to work using only the mod time / size checks. i expect copying the files over manually will mess up the mod time check00:05
Scuniziphilabole: can you be more specific?00:05
blackest_knightyes but it helps to know what the probs are00:06
henriqueok my name is back up there but not the little button with the different options for shutdown, restart, logout and hybernate, etc00:06
philabolesorry first i cn't connect to the net00:06
Scunizihenrique: click your name and see if there's a drop down menu00:06
philabolesecond i can't add new programs00:06
al_mister_roboto: youd know better than me! I am no CLI expert. Not even a newbie!!00:06
henriqueno Scunizi single user00:06
epinkynycz: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension , it should be called 2.6.31-16-generic-pae‎  or something like that00:07
drunkncrewphilabole: are you connecting to the net via wifi or ethernet?00:07
=== fen[morgenrot] is now known as fen[mf]
Scunizihenrique: then when you right mouse click and choose "add".. look for a different appelate .. maybe something called user switcher?00:07
bazhangnycz, just install linux-generic-pae ; the rest will be pulled in00:08
philaboledrunkncrew: dsl00:08
blackest_knightphiabole 2nd is dependent on fist00:08
nyczepinky, bazhang: thanks, will do :)00:08
henriqueScunizi: thats the one I used to show my name but thats all it shows. not the different buttons.00:08
Scunizipppoe? for dsl00:08
blackest_knightfirst even00:08
Scunizihenrique: keep looking a different one has to be there someplace00:09
henriqueScunizi: Must be something custom for netbook remix.00:09
henriquemaybe a command line00:09
blackest_knightphilabole:  how are you connected to your dsl connection wired or wireless00:09
Scunizihenrique: maybe one called "shutdown"?00:09
philaboleblackest_Knight: wired00:09
henriquethat only puts the shutdown button. I guess it can work for now but I'll try to figure the other one later00:10
Scunizihenrique: I just reformatted my usb key that was setup to boot to unr otherwise I'd boot on my laptop and look as well.00:10
henriqueScunizi: thank you for your help I'll do some external search on google or ask in the forums00:10
blackest_knightphilabole:  do you know what chipset your ethernet card has00:10
Peloanyone know how to "regenerate" the locate command, it still shows me entries from before I deleted them00:11

david_can i convert a .tar.bz2 into a .deb?00:11
philaboleblackest_knight: argh.....00:12
Scunizihenrique: we learn better that way ;)00:12
PeloScunizi, I havenT' been around much in the past couple of years,  nice to know I made an impression ;-)00:12
henriquegood night all00:12
henriquehappy new year00:12
icerootdavid_: not that easy as you think but yes of course you can00:12
david_ok, can you explain how ;)00:12
blackest_knightphilabole:  generally wired connections tend to just work00:12
nyczhm, i'm unsure about swap space... as i said earlier i've got 4gb ram and 1gb vram, should i have a swap partition and if so, how big?00:13
mezimezimI have installed gpsbabel & viking, but I  am not able to get any info out/in of my GPS, any expertise in the area?00:13
philaboleblackest_knight: yeah i've been using ubuntu for over a year and it always has just worked00:13
PeloScunizi, you'll probably be able to help me more in the near future, i'm dabbling in CLI , first time I 've done that much of it , installed a media center on an old comp,  too old for a gui00:13
icerootdavid_: just read something about what a deb is and how it works, then you have to manyally build the deb from the tar.bz200:13
type_twhy do you need it as a .deb ??00:13
icerootdavid_: there is no converter00:13
david_oh, ol00:14
ScuniziPelo: I will when I can for sure00:14
philaboleblackest_knight: with a new motherboard, do i need some drivers or something00:14
PeloScunizi, iceroot thanks a lot that seems to have done it , now to see if the app works properly00:14
type_tthe fact that is .deb means it is installed by dpkg and runns a installer made for that package.00:14
icerootdavid_: read the manpage about dh_make00:14
* Scunizi is making a live usb of kubuntu 9.1000:15
blackest_knightphilabole:  you need to find what chip it is and google it00:15
type_tyou can force install and as long as you dont runn into conflicts . its ok.00:15
ScuniziPelo: crunchbang might have been perfect for that old machine00:15
mezimezimhere is what I get when I do a dmesg right after plugging http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/m7e99838e00:15
philaboledarkest_knight: ok00:15
nyczwith 4gb of ram, should i have a swap partition?00:15
bastid_raZornycz: if you plan on hibernating or suspending00:16
blackest_knightphilabole:  did it work on the live cd ?00:16
Dr_Willisnycz:  I always do at least 512mb of swap partition. just in 'case' :)00:16
nyczbastid_raZor: not really, i have it on when i'm awake and off when i'm sleeping or away00:16
Scunizimezimezim: it's mounted at uhci_hcd00:17
david_iceroot: I don't seem to have "dh_make" when I try to read the manual it tells me to install it w/ apt-get but then it tells me that the package doesn't exist00:17
philaboledarkest_knight: you know i didn't check, i just installed it00:17
nyczDr_Willis: okay00:17
bastid_raZornycz: swap is not required but highly recommended.. i agree with Dr_Willis .. just in case00:17
Dr_Willisnycz:  if nothing else.. ive seen live cd's use swap :) which can come in handy00:17
miczlater all happy new year00:17
philaboleblackest_knight: sorry bout the name thing00:17
mezimezimScunizi: ok, where do I find the data?00:17
blackest_knightphilabole:  it might be worth googling the motherboard and linux and see what comes up, pain but sometimes you get issues00:18
nyczbastid_raZor, Dr_Willis: ah, atm i have 4gb... maybe a bit too much then00:18
philaboleblackest_knight: thanks i'll do that00:18
Dr_Willisnycz:  if you want to use hibernate/suspend - you want 4gb of swap then I think00:18
Dr_Willisnycz:  i never use Hibernate/suspend :)00:18
bastid_raZornycz: if you have it already made then leave it be..00:18
nyczDr_Willis: me neither00:19
nyczbastid_raZor: i'm just about to reinstall :)00:19
bastid_raZor!hardware | philabole you can look here for your hardware compatibility00:19
ubottuphilabole you can look here for your hardware compatibility: For lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection00:19
type_tdh_make is debian utils00:19
blackest_knightphilabole:  if you get really stuck you can pick up network cards very cheaply or even go for wifi but its unusual to have one that doesnt work at all00:19
blackest_knightwhat does ifconfig say ?00:19
bastid_raZornycz: your choice then.j good luck00:19
Scunizimezimezim: I'm not sure what the usb device is.. is it a gps device? and if so is there an app that is suppose to marry to it?00:19
nyczthanks :)00:20
* Pelo mutters about doing nasty things to python programmers who can't follow standards 00:20
philaboleblackest_knight: thank you sir00:20
blackest_knightsorry iwconfig00:20
* Dr_Willis thought python was written so you had to follow standards...00:20
mezimezimyes, it's a Garmin GPS, I have installed GPSBABEL and Viking, 2 programs supposed to communicate with Garmin GPS, but I can't get the data out of it...00:20
Dr_Willisor was it just you had to follow formating standards00:21
blackest_knightno worries its a good year nearly died twice in 2009 :)00:21
PeloDr_Willis, maybe the guy followed python standards but when you write a freaking weather applet it would be nice to follow the naming conventions that everyone else is following for naming your icons00:21
Scunizimezimezim: ok.. in gpsbabel or viking if there is a setup or properties you have to tell it the mount point of the gps device so the program(s) will know where to look for the data.00:21
mezimezimscunizi: so, it the device is mounted, does it mean I should be able to see the data in it from nautilus and/or the terminal?00:22
giuseppe_hallo wie gehe in ubuntu.de00:22
icerootdavid_: debhelper is the package00:23
icerootdavid_: dh stands for debhelper00:23
Scunizimezimezim: if the usb device *is* the gps then probably not unless the gps will also act as a mass storage device which is doutfull..but if you're looking for the device to send data to the programs it's typically in a stream of some sort.. the program will have to know where to look and then interpret the stream.. you might also look at the openstreet(s) app.... if there is one.00:24
icerootdavid_: and for building the package its ok to use  dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot instead of pbuilder with chroot00:25
Scuniziguiscard: type /j #ubuntu-de00:25
Scunizigiuseppe_: type /j #ubuntu-de00:26

Sylvester_InkBuddy of mine is running Ubuntu and he got a new monitor.  It's not set up for the correct resolution00:30
Sylvester_InkWhat's the best way to set the resolution for a higher setting00:31
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  dvi or vga connection? and what video card?00:32
jtajiSylvester_Ink: did you try System > Prefs > Display ?00:32
riverbirdi seem to be stuck in a package dependency loop .. installing tomboy1.0.1 into hardy .. any help or info??00:32
Ricoshadyso whats the best way to mange packages?00:33
Sylvester_Inkoh wait.  Sorry Dr_Willis and jtaji, he didn't tell me he had 2 monitors plugged in . . .00:33
Dr_WillisRicoshady:  with a packge manager tool. :)00:33
RicoshadyDr_Willis, which one I mean00:33
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  with nvidia cards - i just run the nvidia-settings tool and set them up00:33
Dr_WillisRicoshady:  dosent really matter. They all do the same stuff in the background00:34
Ricoshadyive heard some do a better job with dependencies00:34
type_t#- thereis #nvidia00:34
Dr_WillisRicoshady:  in theory they all shoukld install whatever dependencuies are needed.. or else the packges wouldent work.00:35
Dr_WillisRicoshady:  some may be a little smarter at REMOVEING packages/deps/unneeded deps..00:35
Sylvester_InkDr_Willis: the new monitor uses DVI connection.  It has the same resolution issue with just one monitor plugged in00:35
Sylvester_Ink(I believe he's using an ATI videocard)00:35
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  no idea on ati. Other then to be sure the proper restricted drivers are installed and try the system > prefs > display item.00:36
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  and of course use DVI conector if at all possible. :)00:36
Sylvester_InkYeah, I figured as much :D00:36
mezimezimscunizi & mr_roboto  : I seem to be having some success with gpsbabel00:39
Sylvester_InkHey Dr_Willis, is it a good idea to mess around with xorg.conf00:41
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  when in doubt - make backups.00:41
Sylvester_InkSince it's been removed from the latest version of Ubuntu00:41
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  ive some machines that dont even have xorg.conf some of my systems I do have a xorg.conf00:41
Dr_WillisSylvester_Ink:  nvidia settingsz keep the muilti monitor and other info  in there00:42
Sylvester_InkDr_Willis: Yeah, I use it on my laptop since that's the only way to get the correct screen rez00:42
Sylvester_InkI'll probably have him write one up for now00:42

mister_robototype_t:  Zlobi   i just used that technique and manually set up the xorg.conf with ubuntu 9.10 on a machine at work00:52
Zlobimister_roboto: Fine then. So it is just different grub00:52
mister_robotoZlobi: actually i never read up on it in detail about where the config goes now for X. i found it confusing the first time there was no xorg.conf :)00:54
mister_robotoZlobi: but it worked00:54
Zlobimister_roboto: Yes, commands are the same, which is god, but the guts are different00:55

Izinucsnomnex: I did that for a while.. you have to learn a totally different set of programs that will run in the TTy01:10
Sylvester_Inkblackest_knight: so you can't do them side by side?01:10
Izinucsnomnex: twinkle for IM, mutt for email, eliinks for internet browsing etc.01:10
Pelonommthat's because you are trying to open a gui app using a console mode you need a consol app to do that same job , what are you trying to do ?01:10
nomnexIzinucs, like wim?01:10
Pelonomnex, try nano, easier01:11

IzinucsIs CPU scaling automatic?01:14
blackest_knightSylvester should work vertical rouble is the xorg.conf getting junked out is creating problems01:14
Tiderscp -r to copy a whole directory?01:15
icerootIzinucs: if the cpu supports it (and the cpu is supported by the kernel) yes01:15
PeloTiders, I like  cp dirname/*  less confusing01:15
TidersPelo, thats true thanks01:15
TidersPelo both would work though correct?01:15
Sylvester_Inkblackest_knight: yeah, but remember that I'm having to fix this problem remotely01:15
Izinucsiceroot: just noticed it for the first time.. live usb 64 bit kubuntu01:15
Sylvester_InkI'm not actually at his computer, I'm telling him via gchat01:16
nomnexPelo, I've got the link, but thanks (as the excellent Linux phrasebook-Scott Granneman-2006) if someone wants it, I'll share01:16
Sylvester_Inkand that's not fun01:16
PeloTiders, not sure if it would be   -r or -R but it should ,man cp to check01:16
killingon1516hi all. ubuntu novice here... im in the market to buy a LARGE mp3 player..and im wondering what works best with ubuntu..my sister told me to avoid ipods but other then that i have no guidelines..anyone help me?01:16
Sylvester_Inkkillingon1516: I recommend looking into the iAudio line01:16
trismPelo: both are correct01:16
Sylvester_Inkit's by Cowon01:16
digitalaxiskillingon1516, Ipods work perfectly with ubuntu, i have used my ipod with ubuntu since ipods first came out01:16
Pelonomnex, best suggestion I can make start bookmarking the links ppl give you ,even if you don'T use them now , eventualy you probably will need tem01:16
IzinucsTiders: cp -r /path/of/directory /path/to/new/location01:17
blackest_knightSylvester_Ink: well the display tool in gnome is fairly straigh forward mess  up reboot...01:17
khelvanOk, the system just "froze" for a bit, meaning I couldn't move my mouse, then it started "stuttering," meaning I could move my mouse in spurts but not do anything, and alt-tab brought up only bits and pieces of a window, then the screen went black, then I was sent to the login screen in Karmic. I had two terminal windows open, Xchat, and Firefox...any idea what could cause this?01:17
digitalaxiskillingon1516, In all honesty, ipods ARE the best MP3 player for Ubuntu.01:17
IzinucsTiders: unless it's outside of /home01:17
Hilikuskillingon1516: i second COWON, great products01:17
Pelokhelvan, what were you doing ? somethjing very cpu intensive ? that can happen01:18
Hilikuskillingon1516: and stay away from ipods. they do work, but they are all hacks01:18
killingon1516well whats the biggest size for that one Hilkus?01:18
Izinucskhelvan: video driver maybe01:18
blackest_knightkhelvan:  lack of ram or something doing too much try typing top in a terminal01:18
digitalaxiskillingon1516, Check your private chat01:18
klownI agree, ipods work great with ubuntu, im using a 120g gen 5 classic right now01:18
nomnexPelo, I don't understand "I can make start bookmarking the links ppl give you". but I have the link you gave me already in my bookmarks collection if it make sens?01:18
Sylvester_InkEh, iPods are good, but overrated01:19
Sylvester_Inkthere are plenty of excellent mp3 players that aren't ipods, but few get looked at01:19
Cyber_AkumaI dont like mp3 players that require special software/drivers to put music on them01:19
Cyber_Akumaipod, zune, eyc01:19
Pelonomnex, sorry, bad wording,  bookmark every link ppl give you , you will probably need them eventualy01:19
Sylvester_InkCyber_Akuma: exactly, the cowon players work as thumb drives01:19
khelvanPelo - Nothing, I had Firefox open to a few sites, htop running in one terminal, another wasn't doing anything. I was typing in XChat when it crashed. I have 12 GB of RAM. I have an Nvidia GTX 295, and am using the proprietary driver found in Karmic.01:19
ga_sk8eris there a good photo editing program where i can change only the background?01:19
digitalaxisSylvester_Ink, i work at a radio station part time, and we use ipods for most field data storage simply because they are the most stable for large amounts of data01:19
khelvanThe above was for Izinucs and blackest_knight, thanks.01:19
IzinucsPelo: I use a mindmapper to track stuff in categories.. vym or other01:20
Cyber_AkumaWhat about laptop drive enclosures?01:20
Cyber_AkumaAnd flash memory "should" be more stable...01:20
Hilikushappy new year guys. im off01:20
Dr_Willisnomnex:  check out my ubuntu/linux tagged links at http://delicious.com/dr_willis also. :) and other peoples ubuntu tagged urls as well01:20
Cyber_Akumaga_sk8er: The Gimp?01:20
Dr_Willisga_sk8er:  thats doable with the gimp and some skill.01:20
Cyber_AkumaYou also need to lay off the caps lock01:21
Pelokhelvan, it was just one possibility,  and wow,  I didn'T know they made comps with 12 gigs of ram , I'm impressed with your disposable income01:21
Sylvester_Inkdigitalaxis: I'm not saying ipods are bad. I'm just not crazy about many of their limitations01:21
ga_sk8ercyber_akuma gimp wouldnt do what i wanted. i want to keep the ppl in the front & change the background01:21
Cyber_Akumaditto Sylvester_Ink01:21
klownisnt the max on ram 32g now?01:21
digitalaxisSylvester_Ink, lol like what?01:21
IzinucsPelo: ram is cheap.. but you have to have the slots for that much01:21
Sylvester_InkLike the need to use itunes to transfer audio01:21
Cyber_Akumano, its far higher than 32gigs01:21
khelvanPelo - I bought the RAM for less than $300 US. RAM is cheap these days.01:21
digitalaxisSylvester_Ink, you dont need itunes to transfer audio01:21
Cyber_AkumaBut if you are using 32 gigs of ram for a desktop, you are doing it wrong :P01:21
blackest_knightkhelvan:  still worth running top  see whats going on01:22
klownlol, my board supports 16gigs of ddr3, if i need 16gigs, i got problems.01:22
Sylvester_Inkdigitalaxis: last I checked, unless you jailbreak the ipod you require itunes (or some software that supports the interface)01:22
ga_sk8erCyber_Akuma gimp wouldnt do what i wanted. i want to keep the ppl in the front & change the background01:22
Cyber_AkumaI was planning to go 12....01:22
* Pelo is playing around with an 8 yearold celeron D 1.7 mhz with 512 megs of ram and a nvidia g5200 (128mg), Izinucs khelvan 01:22
Izinucskhelvan: check dmesg too.. maybe there's a reference there .. also /var/log01:22
Cyber_Akumamy choices are 3, 6, or 12....01:22
wolfsong_why does a drive i show mounted in Nautilus not appear in Firefox?01:22
IzinucsPelo: you're almost modern with that equipment.. I have a couple around like that I use for servers and testing01:23
Cyber_AkumaCourse, I dont have the MONEY to build it :(01:23
digitalaxisSylvester_Ink, ipods are the easiest mp3 player to hack bud. No need to follow what they initially require:)01:23
klownPelo, time for an upgrade :P01:23
Pelokhelvan, Izinucs  on the other hand I just bought a 32inch lcd for that computer, it's a media center now01:23
nomnexPeolo, I do that when I don't have the links already ;-) Dr_Willis, looking now01:23
Cyber_AkumaMy old mp3 player messed up :(01:23
Sylvester_Inkdigitalaxis: but you shouldn't need to hack them01:23
Cyber_AkumaThe flash seems to be stuck in read-only mode01:23
Sylvester_InkI'd rather use my money to support a manufacturer that gives me what I want by default01:23
Peloklown, it was a gift from my neibourg ,when she bought her new one,  it's my favorite toy right now01:23
IzinucsPelo: I just bought a 22" monitor 'cause I wanted the realestate and can't convince my wife I need two monitors :) .. $179 at tigerdirect01:24
Cyber_AkumaSo not only can I not delete/ad dmusic... but it can't PLAY music either because it needs scratch space01:24
digitalaxisSylvester_Ink, well i still prefer ipods, lol01:24
klownIzinucs, im trying to convince my wife of the same01:24
Cyber_Akumaat least I was able to get the music OFF of it though01:24
Sylvester_Inkdigitalaxis: Good, good.  They're a good mp3 player. :D01:24
PeloIzinucs, I want one of those, but for now ,all the money went to the tv and the "office comp" is setup with an second hand 17" crt01:24
Izinucsklown: I hate the questions.. "what do you do on that all day"?01:24
Cyber_AkumaI never understood the point of two moniters01:24
IzinucsPelo: one thing at a time :)01:25
Sylvester_InkCyber_Akuma: more work space01:25
Cyber_AkumaWell, its true :P01:25
PeloIzinucs, pretty much01:25
klownIzinucs, i get that all the time, even though she spends 12 hrs + playing a game on her pc.01:25
digitalaxisCyber_Akuma, lol if you are a c++ programmer like me, you can find use for many many monitors lol01:25
Pelohold on brb01:25
Sylvester_Inkhey, I have a quick question in general01:25
JMONEYWhats up guys01:25
mister_robotoCyber_Akuma: it's great for developers who are running various servers, ides and monitors all up at once01:25
Cyber_AkumaOnly reason I upgraded my monitor was becaue the old one got so bad I couldent tell the difference between n and m anymore01:25
digitalaxisCyber_Akuma, run my SLN's on 1 monitor, write my cpp scripts on the other and use chat and such on my third01:25
Izinucsklown: yea.. mine plays a handheld freecell game..01:25
Cyber_AkumaI meant for a desktop :P01:25
Sylvester_Inkrecently on slashdot there was an article about using Vim as an IDE01:25
Cyber_AkumaEven then, this new monitor's size is kinda overwhelming01:26
klownIzinucs, freecell, time for her to upgrade..that game is old as hell.01:26
Cyber_AkumaI can't imagine having two01:26
digitalaxisI have 3 24" monitors01:26
JMONEYIm trying to install from CD I get this error: //Filesystem.squasfs failed: invalid argument -- can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs)01:26
Cyber_Akumasince its 16:9, my old one was 4:301:26
Sylvester_InkI'm currently moving to vim as an IDE, and I was wondering whether it would be better to stick to something like Codeblocks01:26
ftwright now I have 2 x 22" monitors, can't imagine anything less01:26
klownCyber_Akuma, i would enjoy having two 22" monitors, anything bigger, would be overkill01:26
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: it's just an editor. hard to call vim an ide :)01:26
Drakesoncould you please test your gnome-terminal? mine is very slow.  you can test it by doing:  "time gnome-terminal -x true"01:27
Drakesonit takes 3 seconds here01:27
drx2can you copy NTFS partitions from one drive to another with GPARTED on an Ubuntu 6.10 Live CD?01:27
Cyber_AkumaI just have a single 21.5 inch 16:9 monitor, running at 1920x108001:27
Sylvester_Inkmister_roboto: but it can be extended to provide all the ide abilities01:27
klowni just bought a samsung 22" monitor a month ago, i want another just like it, expensive though.01:27
Pelodrx2, not sure gparted does copy01:27
Cyber_AkumaThis thing was I think $12001:27
Cyber_Akumapretty cheap01:27
Izinucsklown: she likes it .. I won't argue with her.01:27
Cyber_AkumaFor what it does at least01:27
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: like what? syntax highlighting?  lol01:27
JMONEYAny ideas ?01:27
Cyber_Akuma2ms response, hdcp and hdmi, audio in and out...01:28
Cyber_Akumasurprised it was only $12001:28
mister_robotoi use vi all the time and like it but it's not close to a real ide01:28
Pelodrx2, you can make a new partion an copy using a live ce but gparted has nothign to do with the copy01:28
JMONEYIm trying to install from CD I get this error: //Filesystem.squasfs failed: invalid argument -- can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs)01:28
osmosisuhh  virt-install  or  vmbuilder?  The docs reference them both.01:28
Sylvester_Inkmister_roboto: projects, debugging, function and variable lists, etc01:28
kmystanybody know why on a fresh intrepid install with luks encryption that it refuses to work with a keyfile larger than 640 bytes?01:28
klownmy samsung has 2hdmi connections, and a component connection, i can hook everything to it.01:28
tomvolek_hi , happy new year.   I am installing oracle db as user oracle , how can i add oracle user to the sudoers list ?01:28
Cyber_Akumanice :)01:28
drx2Pelo: so how do you copy the NTFS partition and boot sector information from one drive to the other?01:28
Cyber_AkumaYeah, I connected my 360 and ps3 to this thing as well as my pc01:28
Cyber_Akumasince I dont have a hdtv01:29
ribotquestion: when i select my fat32 drive from the menu it is automatically mounted and i have permission, but when i added it in fstab i dont have any permissions as a user..how to fix this?01:29
Cyber_Akumapc by dvi 360 by vga, ps3 by hdmi01:29
klownits your choice of course, but i dont see the point in owning a ps3 and a 36001:29
Cyber_Akuma1. My PC sucks, 2. Most genras I like are not on pcs01:30
Izinucsolder ps3 you can install ubuntu on01:30
Cyber_AkumaI have a wii too, Im a pretty big console gamer01:30
Cyber_Akumatried that01:30
Izinucsslim doesn't work for that01:30
Cyber_Akumaran like crap, do I put YDL instead, it was more optimized for the ps301:30
klownsubcolum 1) you own a 360 subcolum 2) you still own a 36001:30
Sylvester_InkAh well, I'm out for now.  Thanks all of you who helped me out!  I'll try and contribute more on the IRC myself!01:30
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: can you point me to some of these extensions? i don't even know what that means... you have only one screen and commmand / input mode. it's not like you can step through your code watching the registers and memory locations, getting popup keyword completion, etc01:31
Cyber_Akumaso what? I like my 360 :P01:31
drx2how do you copy hard drives with Ubuntu Live CD?01:31
klowni just dont understand owning both, i own a 360 and love it, only reason id consider a ps3 is for the blueray drive, and i can buy one for 50$ :/01:31
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: there are so many ides out there now i can't fathom why you'd want to even try transforming vi into one. that's not the right use case for it01:31

Cyber_Akumaok ok01:32
klownmezquitale, your off topic notes are causing more issues than our conversation.01:32
klownjust an fyi.01:32
Sylvester_Inkmister_roboto: I've really taken a liking to how efficient Vim is.  I'm giving it a try to see if it can compete with Codeblocks and Kdevelop01:33
klownand due to someone mentioning that you can run ubuntu on a ps3, it is on topic :P01:33
Cyber_Akumathose things always seem to crop up right when you are in the middle of talking about something, its like having a brick wall dropped in front of you when your car just hit max acceleration...01:33
Cyber_AkumaToo bad the RSX is locked out in OtherOS mode, no video acceleration on ps3 linux :(01:34
JMONEYIm trying to install from CD I get this error: //Filesystem.squasfs failed: invalid argument -- can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs)01:34
mezquitaledrx2, you have to use a utility that will allow you to copy partitions, partimage will do the trick01:34
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: well, good luck :)   i like the fact that it's everywhere and comes up instantly when i need to edit files. and i have it burned into my fingers. but once you start plugging in tons of extensions to make it into an ide, you have to wonder if you're wasting time01:34
Cyber_AkumaIll reinstall ubuntu and opensuse on my laptop someday...... and hopefully itll actually WORK that time01:35
drx2mezquitale: is that on the LiveCD?01:35
Cyber_AkumaLinux hates my laptop's hardware :(01:35
klownCyber_Akuma, i had the same issue with my vaio.01:35

Cyber_Akuma8.10 was the only distro in which all the hardware worked01:35

Cyber_Akumahaven't tried 9.10 on it yet01:36
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: i'm not actually giving you any advice. i'm just expressing my amusement that people are trying to turn vi into something like an ide. why not just go to emacs or stay with codeblocks? (i don't know codeblocks)01:36
Cyber_AkumaStupid Radon x120001:36
fallorei'm trying to use the terminal to install samba ("sudo apt-get install samba") but i get the message "E: Coudln't find package samba"01:37
mezquitaledrx2, youre not off topic, he's talking about a troll that insists on trolling around01:37
Dmolehi, how can I test the www speed of a server, i was thinking public FTP, anyone know of any or other options?01:37
Cyber_Akumavi...... can't STAND that thing... i've tried it01:37
klownCyber_Akuma, last i tried on my vaio was 9.04 also, and i had gfx acceleration issues.01:37
Cyber_Akumaklown: was it also an ati card?01:37
mister_robotoCyber_Akuma: if you're a touch typist, and can get past the learning part, it's very fast to use for simple editing01:37
Sylvester_Inkmister_roboto: I'm not too crazy about emacs myself.  It's a good editor, but i'm acustomed to Vim01:37
Cyber_AkumaI heard that ati sorta discotninued support of some older cards in linux, and the xorg that 9.04 uses needed the newer drivers... or something like that01:38
klownCyber_Akuma, no, an intel card.::disgust::01:38
Sylvester_Inkmister_roboto: besides, Vim has a lot of built in IDE features, so why not use them?01:38
Cyber_AkumaI am.... not sure what I am01:38
drx2mezquitale: ok, how might I find the copy program on the Live CD?01:38
Cyber_AkumaIts like some weird mutant offspring of two-finger and touch typing01:38
Cyber_AkumaAs long as im not conscious of my fingers... I can touch type XD01:38
klownlol, im the same way01:38
Cyber_AkumaI just felt that vi is kinda cryptic01:39
fallorei'm trying to use the terminal to install samba ("sudo apt-get install samba") but i get the message "E: Coudln't find package samba"01:39
klownwhen i started taking programming classes in college, they made us use vi01:39
Sylvester_InkCyber_Akuma: It is difficult at first, but once I figured it out, I really like it01:39
mister_robotoSylvester_Ink: sure, i'm not saying you should stay away from them. i just like the portability and do things with many different kinds of unix, most of which aren't running vim or associated plugins/extensions01:40
Cyber_AkumaMaybe I was too used to edit, but the ui seemed very..... not sure whats the word01:40
kmystyeah well i got hooked on emacs but eventually learned that vi is installed everywhere whereas emacs wasn't and switched...now i can't see any other way of editing quickly01:40

Cyber_AkumaWhat advantage does vi have though nowadays? I mean, I can understand how something tiny and using up small memory was useful back in the day, but what advntage does it have over other editors nowadays?01:42
klownCyber_Akuma, nothing really.01:43
Sylvester_InkCyber_Akuma: because of the available commands, editing is a lot quicker01:43
kmystsimple, it is installed everywhere01:43
Cyber_AkumaSo why does everyone use it then?01:43

I was gonna take my 9.10 standard CD and use ubuntu customization kit to make a disk like there selling on on-disk.com 9.10-10.01 (9.10 with all integrated updates as of Jan 2010).Pretty easy to do. So whats the deal with pulseaudio? Did they change anything with it or is it the same unreliable crap that it has been in the past?01:44

klownCyber_Akuma, its a good program, as been mentioned, but if you dont care for it, its your personal opinion.01:46

billI have a question while I'm here testing this IRC client ;): I'm on karmic koala now, first time linux.  When the next LTS comes out in April, should I boot, wait for GDM then Control+Alt+F1 to a console and sudo apt-get update, sudo apt-get upgrade without fully booting in Gnome?  Or does it make a difference? Not needed, use synaptic of a graphical terminal?01:51
mezquitaleklown, this is ubuntu support, not vi support, if vi is up and running then ask Cyber_Akuma to go to the forums to learn how to use vi01:51

mister_robotobill: on my laptop here, i just do "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" fairly regularly to keep everything up to date01:54

mezquitale!patience | Guest1143401:54
ubottuGuest11434: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org while you wait.01:54
klownbazhang, mind if i message you?01:54
mister_robotobill: oh, and do that from an xterm within the gui.  if the kernel changes, i reboot01:54
mkamezquitale, confused, but I am not here to discuss off-topic stuff. let me distance myself from this.01:54
bazhangklown, go ahead01:54
billmister_roboto: oops, apt-get dist-upgrade, gotcha! I'll probably do it from a text console then if it doesn't matter - who knows? ;)01:54
Cyber_AkumaBTW, anybody here boot ubuntu and other distros at once? Was wondering if there is a way to make it so grub2 won't have problems if distros other than ubuntu update their kernel, since it seems to need to point to the kernel directly01:55
DmoleGuest11434: put your stuff in a past bin and list any changes after install01:55
mister_robotobill: it doesn't matter. the update process will restart what it can and anything else will restart some time later. of course you can afford to update a little more freely on your desktop than you might on a mission-critical server :)01:56
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  you could set up the other distros bootloader on the boot record of their partiton and have grub2 chainload the other disrtos bootloader.. some how..01:56
Cyber_AkumaYeah but then THAT disto will aldo triple boot01:56
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  easiest would be to have a seperate hard drive for each disrto and use the bios menus to boot whatever hd you wanted.01:56
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  sounds like you will be doing some grub-fu-by hand work then01:56
Cyber_AkumaIts a laptop and I have three OSes on it, not really possible unfortunately01:56
JMONEYso after i tried check cd for defects i get the follow message: //filesystem.squashfs failed: invalid arguments -- can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs)01:57
loshaCyber_Akuma: there's no way to *guarantee* that other distros will update grub2 correctly. There's basically no substititute for checking and maintaining it by hand, in my opinion...01:57
mkaDr_Willis, to chainload even linux distros? is that efficient?01:57
billmister_roboto: Ok then, makes sense!  Thank you for the help!  When LTS is available I'll be back the next day to see how busy this channel is before doing it myself! ;)  Thank you again, done testing IRC client now: goodbye.01:57
kmystCyber_Akuma: back before there was such a thing as grub there was lilo and i managed to do 4 linux installs using the above suggestion01:57
Dr_Willismka:  it dosent slow down anything.. ya just have to hit 2 menu items  ay get grub2 --> other grub..  so its possuible01:57
JMONEYany help plz01:57
Dr_Willis Grub can go on the MBR of the hard drive.. OR on teh bootrecord of the partion. thats the  'trick' to chainloading i recall.01:58
bazhangJMONEY, did you md5 the iso01:58
Dr_WillisNow making sure  the other disrtos dont fight over installing their boot records is the trick01:58
JMONEYI downloaded from ubuntu.com 2 times01:58
Cyber_AkumaThere is no way I could, for example, make grub point to a config file that the distro itself can update and let THAT tell it where the kernel/everything is? Sorry if that makes no sense01:58
JMONEYbazhang, how I do that?01:58
mezquitaleCyber_Akuma, basically you just have to try it and see what happens, one issue I have found is that grub2 is poor at finding distros that have their own "/boot" partition, it's a bug and dont know if it got fixed or not but you can definetely make it work with SuSE01:58
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  depends on what the other disrto is using.01:58
Guest11434I installed Ubuntu 9.10 earlier and everything worked just fine. I ran the update manager for the first time and while it was doing its thing it told me that I need to restart. I did so and now I can't boot into Ubuntu.01:59
bazhang!md5 | JMONEY01:59
ubottuJMONEY: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows01:59
mkaCyber_Akuma, Dr_Willis, what if there is one bootloader at the MBR and then grub2 use the /vmlinuz and /initrd symbolic links that would point to the latest kernel versions?01:59
mtcGuest11434: grub should show you an option to boot the old version, when you boot01:59
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  some of the new fetures of grub2 will proberly let ya do that somehow.. but grub2 is still a work in progress01:59
mezquitaleGuest11434, try going into a console using "altr-ctrl-F1"01:59
JMONEYbazhang, where do I get the .md5 file ?01:59
Dr_Willismka:  part of the issue will be the various arguments to the kernel and intird also..01:59
loshamka: you'd still have to keep the links updated if anything changed, so I don't see that you're much better off....02:00
Dr_WillisPersonally if using 2 linux's id just run one in virtualbox. :)02:00
bazhangJMONEY, did you check the link?02:00
JMONEYbazhang, yeah02:00
mkalosha, I think when you install the a newer kernel those links are updated automatically02:00
Guest11434I tried that, I can't enter a console. It hangs on the screen with the white Ubuntu logo right before the splash screen for a bit, and then goes to a black screen with: fsck from util-linux-ng 2.16 [   3.575240] Adding 6032368k swap on /dev/sda5.   Priority:-1 extents:1 across: 6032368k /dev/sda1: clean, 151614/9396224 files, 1245533/37553937 blocks init: udevtrigger main process (549) terminated with status 1 init: udevtrigg02:00

Guest11434Though sometimes it's not exactly like that. other times it stops after blocks02:01
Dr_WillisMulti-boot with grub and grub2 and chainloading http://www.justlinux.com/forum/showthread.php?t=15278402:01
kmystsymbolic link is a shortcut in a sense02:01
Cyber_AkumaWhen I tried it, it was a mess, but the version of ubuntu I used was still using grub1, and I installed it on a n ext4 partition, opensuse coulden't read ext4 back then either02:01
mkaCyber_Akuma, a symbolic link is simply a shortcut02:01
Cyber_AkumaNow that ubuntu uses grub2 and opensuse can do ext4 im hoping it will be a bit less messy02:01
loshamka: maybe true when you update a ubuntu kernel, but if you're dual-booting say, bsd, you're gonna have to do some hand editing....02:01
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  if you dont know what symbolic links even are.. well.. :) you may want to stick to running one disrto in virtualbox then.02:02
mezquitaleGuest11434, it sounds like you have a bad hard drive02:02
mkalosha, why?02:02
Cyber_AkumaIm new to linux, not computers :P02:02
mtcGuest11434: yup hard disk drive errors02:02
Guest11434Also, I'm not sure if this means anything but when it was working it just booted into Ubuntu. Ever since the problem started it's been taking me straight to GRUB02:02
Cyber_Akumamka: I see02:02
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  grub2 has some very powerfull scripting features that could proberly read some suse configs and auto add the proper entries.. but   i still think chainloading would be the proper way.02:03
mkalosha, at some point a had 6 operating systems on 1 machine with one grub in MBR02:03
Cyber_AkumaYeah, I like how its modular, saved me when using linux on THIS pc02:03
mkalosha, but that was the older grub not this confusing new one02:03
Cyber_Akumagetting it to boot was a mess XD02:03
loshamka: because other distros, and even older versions of ubuntu can't be relied on to get the syntax correct when they update the grub config files....02:03
mezquitaleGuest11434, do you have grub2 installed?  Does it make it to the point when you can choose what OS to boot up into?02:03
mtcGuest11434: try booting to a live cd02:04
Cyber_AkumaOld motherboard that can't read past the 132gb limit, the hdd is 160gb and I installed linux past the 132gb mark.... that took a while to fix in grub202:04
Guest11434Actually it says GRUB 1.97 (or 94, something like that) beta. It does allow me to choose the OS to boot into (though only Ubuntu is on there)02:04
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  thats odd... :) then again . there used to be a 1024 cylinder limit. thats one of the reasons for  /boot/ partitions02:04
kmystyeah but whilst in one distro grub can't/shouldn't update the config files for another distro unless for some *crazy* reason you are trying to share /boot amongst the various distros...that way lies madness02:04
Guest11434I can boot with a liveCD... Not sure what to do with it though, I've never run into a problem like this02:05
mkalosha, ok, my knowledge is limited when it goes to grub2 but with the older grub, there are no problems02:05
Cyber_AkumaTried a boot partition, still didn't help, I just wound up installing grub with the ata module instead of the bios one02:05
Cyber_AkumaHad to edit grub's autoconfig files to point to ata instead of hd devices too...02:05
ribothi, i wonder how to mount a drive on boot the same was as you mount it when clicking it in places...the drive in question is a local fat32 drive02:05
Dr_WillisCyber_Akuma:  perhaps this url -> http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/suse-linux-help/57896-suse-ubuntu-dual-boot.html02:05
kmystribot: add it to /etc/fstab02:05

xrfangI have a question about gnome-shell, how to make it the default window manager/shell of gnome? now I have to auto-run gnome-shell --replace as metacity is loaded by default, and I don't know where to change this behavior02:22
mkaDr_Willis, ja it's hardware I think so as well, because I can mount it sometimes and access files, then about 2 minutes later, POOF, files are gone02:22
kmystsounds like hardware then02:23
loshamka: I'm with Dr_Willis. There should be endless complaints in dmesg if the disk drops out....02:23

mkalosha, I managed to quickly deleting its swap partition because it used to trap my livecd session when it vanishes02:25
ribothow come it's so easy to get permissions when you mount the drive from ubuntu's gui, but so difficult to mount it on boot?02:25
jordanwblosha: dmesg | grep sendmail gives nothing02:25

Dr_Willismatelot:  the Windows key is normalluy called the 'Super' key  in Linux. and its useable by many programs as a extra meta-key02:26

benjgvpsWell, when I try to use vesa as the driver it tells me that there are no devices detected02:26
Dr_Willismatelot:  compiz uses it for a lot of features. ie: Super-tab.02:26
usr13matelot: you can assign it to do what you want, like bringing up the start menu... or some other clever function of your choosing.02:26
kmystribot: because you need the user option in fstab02:26
maximiliani am from germany its 03:26 now xD02:26

toshow to i start the mouse deamon02:46
mkaribot, I assumed that your uid is 1000 and your gid is 1000 (type "id" to confirm this for yourself)02:46
klownXfact, basically, it says you need to upgrade to the 173 version of the prop. driver.02:46
ribotmka, yes02:46
mkaribot, the umask option makes sure that the permissions are rwxrwx---02:46

webbb82i just got a new laptop and it came with windows 7 , im thinking of installling ubuntu onto my external hard drive and run it that way  what about wubi install would that be a better way than installing on external hd ??03:35
funghoulI just got into it, I don't know what the problem is, but you could try another client03:35
acovrigfunghoul, ok thanks03:35
benjgvpswebbb82: It should work on an external drive, though Wubi isn't an awful choice for trying it out03:36
riverbirdwebbb82, i've heard mostly trouble with wubi.  why not just dual boot?03:36
webbb82if i go the external hd rout will it act just like a normal hard drive install i can save files and download and it saves?03:36
effendiwebbb82: its about performance, which hard drive is faster.. thats my opinion03:36

webbb82i should just dual boot03:37
Guest61796hi.. how do i set ubuntu to resume all user running processes after a reboot or power failure?03:37
effendieven when dual-booting, itll be slower because of where ubuntu is located on your hard drive03:37
=== Guest61796 is now known as toss
effendithe first OS is always faster03:38
benjgvpsWell the links provided by the bot are useless like always, I could care less about free formats. Is there just a package with the audio codecs?03:38
webbb82i would just install it and take off windows but it didnt come with a window install cd if i ever want to go back to windows 703:38
benjgvpswebbb82: It may have a restore partition03:38
webbb82it does03:38
riverbirdwebbb82, what size the new hdd?03:38
effendiwebbb82: sometimes manufacturers leave backup partitions with a bios that allows you to restore it to normal when pressed03:38
webbb82but would the ubuntu installer remove it when it partitions my hard drive03:38
benjgvpswebbb82: It will03:39
riverbirdwebbb82, p03:39
webbb82so that wouldnt work03:39
trismbenjgvps: ubuntu-restricted-extras has a bunch of codecs (as well as other things), or you could just install the gstreamer bad, ugly, etc packages03:39
tosshi.. how do i set ubuntu to resume all user running processes after a reboot or power failure? please help03:39
webbb82i must say windows 7 is really nice03:39

FunnyMan4595I meant to do this...03:40
riverbirdwebbb82, ubuntu will fit on about 4 gb, so depends mostly on your files03:41
trismbenjgvps: they are all of the form gstreamer0.10-plugins- (bad, ugly, bad-multverse, ugly-multiverse...that's pretty much it)03:41

Izinucssepehr: if not games then you might consider installing in virtualbox instead.. you won't have the grub issues and you'll have access to windows within ubuntu without rebooting05:54

xiongI recently upgraded to 9.10. There used to be a panel applet in the upper-right which allowed me to switch users, restart/shutdown/logout, and even set my ICQ status. Now it's gone and 'Add to Panel' doesn't seem to have that thing anymore -- only about three things that collectively do some of the same stuff. What have I done? What can I do?06:07
=== wet-chan is now known as wet

dnivraanyone know how to install login screen themes in karmic? I've downloaded the tarballs but they don't have any configure scripts and I find no way to install them from System-> Admn -> Login Screen like it's possible in Jaunty.06:08
kmystxiong: i'm on intrepid and it is called user switcher06:09
coz_dnivra,   well if you mean gdm themes   I do indeed but you really cant install gdm themes anymore if you are on ubuntu karmic06:09
dannyDoes anyone know why searches from the Ubuntu start page are not showing up in my Google History page?06:09
xiongkmyst, Thank you. 'User Switcher' is one of the things still available but it's not like the old one.06:10
xiongkmyst, At least I will have a starting point for tracking down the change.06:10
coz_dnivra,  actually the more gtk2 themes you have installed the more variation in gdm themes you can have as well06:10
dnivracoz_: yeah gdm; didn't know the term. can't install them any more? great!06:10
itsnotstalkingdanny, do you reall y want that freaky shit show up up in there?06:10
coz_dnivra,   ok  lets test it first   ...open a terminal06:10
kmystxiong: np, haven't upgraded past intrepid myself due to having ati vid card and losing advanced video capabilty...or so i've read06:10
dannyYes, I really do! And I forgot to mention that all of my browsing is showing up there but not my searches.06:11
dnivracoz_: yeah I'm in a terminal. what should I do?06:11
coz_dnivra,  then copy and paste t his next command by highlighting it here and simply middle clicking inside the terminal window     gksudo -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-appearance-properties06:11
sunil2while opening word processor i'm getting "The application cannot be started.06:12
sunil2OpenOffice.org user installation could not be completed due to insufficient free disk space. Please free more disc space at the following location and restart OpenOffice.org:  /home/sunil/.openoffice.org/3"06:12
coz_dnivra,  what will open is the gnome control center and you choose one of the gtk2 themes   then close out of that and restart x or log out and back on  I think the log off should do it06:12
sunil2how to solve this problem?06:12
lstarnessunil2: you're probably out of disk space06:12
dnivracoz_,  be right back.06:12
xiongkmyst, Now I'm trying to remember why I fooled with a working system.06:12
coz_dnivra,  ok06:12
shawn_Happy new years to those that it applies to!06:13
kmystxiong: i know the feeling06:13
sunil2then how to proceed now????06:13
ljamisoniisunil2: it's quite simple...free up some space at the given location.06:13
lstarnessunil2: get some more disk space06:13
lstarnessunil2: try opening a terminal and typing df -h06:13
coz_dnivra,  so?06:14
dnivracoz_: the login screen was the same.06:14
joshua__Sorry to bother everyone, but could someone help me with doing this?06:14
dnivracoz_: what was supposed to happen?06:14
coz_dnivra,  ok lets be sure you went to the right place and chose the correct thing06:14
joshua__I need to install the Linux driver forRadeon Mobility X160006:14
coz_dnivra,  open system/preferences/appearance06:14
joshua__*ATI Radeon Mobility X160006:14
lstarnes!radeon | joshua__06:15
ubottujoshua__: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto06:15
lstarnesjoshua__: have you tried using ubuntu's official packages for the drivers?06:15
coz_dnivra,  when that opens click the "Customize" button  then the "Controls"  tab06:15
=== rww is now known as rw
sepehrjoshua__: also note that the fglrx drivers wont work on karmic06:15
coz_dnivra,  that is where you make the change however  it cant be done until you use that command to opne the appearance properties06:15
dnivracoz_ you want a screen shot? i get a window with the old theme selected.06:16
joshua__I tried, but apparently the default gpu driver ubuntu provides doesn't support my GFX card.06:16
coz_dnivra,  ok did you follow those last directions?06:16
=== ubuntu_ is now known as fiber
coz_dnivra, let me show you hold on06:16
dnivracoz_: sure thing. they made no sense:).06:16
sepehrjoshua__: what version of ubuntu r u running?06:16
dnivracoz_, were you referring to the earlier command you gave?06:16
coz_dnivra,  yes hold on06:17
dnivracoz_, sure thing06:17
joshua__Latest one.06:17
coz_dnivra,   ok take a look at this   http://dl.dropbox.com/u/132551/screenshot1.png06:17
fiberhello... i just transfered my ubuntu install to another harddrive but now when i boot it says "grub harddisk failure".  What i did (in order) was a) use cpio to make a direct copy of hd a to hd b b) installed grub on the other hd by doing "grub-install /dev/sdb" c) changed the uuid's in /etc/fstab and /boot/grub/menu.lst.  did i miss anything?  any ideas?06:18
itsnotstalkingdoes anyone who uses firefox notice it dies for a few minutes sometimes, with no explanation06:18
itsnotstalkingi shoud just switch browsers06:18
sepehrjoshua__: well ur out of luck since ati doesnt support the latest verion of xorg that ships with 9.10 so ur gona have to use the opensource drivers (they are actually better in every way except 3D)06:19
coz_dnivra,  when you use that dbus command I gave earlier it will also open the  appearnace properties as root....then you click the  "Customize" button  and under the "Controls" tab  just choose one of the gtk2 themes you want as your login screen colours06:19
joshua__Hrm... Where would I find the open source driver?06:19
dnivracoz_, alright. going to do it, logout and log back in. hold on ok.06:19
coz_dnivra,   as you see on my screenshot06:19
dnivracoz_: crystal clear. let me try.06:19
coz_dnivra,   I chose   balanzan as the gtk2 theme and again with that command the balanzan theme again06:19
sepehrjoshua__: so if ur planing on same kind of gaming performance as with ati drivers well u could use an older version i guess however u still get some 3d (things like compiz should still work fine)06:20
kmystfiber: unique approach, but why not just dd the drive? i haven't tried it precisely your way but it'd "seem" that you did what i would have done...harddisk failure is all it says?06:20
dnivracoz_: you changed the theme as root and also as the normal user?06:20
xiongkmyst, The real name of the thing *may* be 'indicator-applet-session'.06:20
joshua__I'm not planning on doing massive gaming, but one of the java games I play crashes because there is no driver for the GPU.06:20
coz_dnivra,   well choose as user the theme you want for your system  but06:21
sepehrjoshua__: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver the how to is pretty detailed just entering those lines into terminal should do it06:21
joshua__I just need any driver that woiuld work with it.06:21
kmystxiong: hey good to know if i ever upgrade! i use that applet like crazy06:21
shawn146i am havign some trouble with ubuntu06:21
fiberkmyst: i didn't dd because the drives are different (one is 300GB the other is 1.5TB)... and all it says it HD failure right before getting to the menu, nothing else06:21
dnivracoz_, just thought I should tell you that the theme is what I chose earlier when I ran the command you gave me.06:21
coz_dnivra,  with that dbus command  choose the theme you want as log in screen06:21
xiongkmyst, I have yet to restore it to panel. 'man' doesn't work.06:21
joshua__So I just run all that stuff?06:21
coz_dnivra,  it should work well but I will try it again when you try once more and it doesn work06:21
kmystfiber: yeah but you could dd then expand the partition to take up the extra space06:21

dnivracoz_, yeah with the dbus command you gave me, the theme is another one - the one I chose before logout. I will do it once more sure.06:21
coz_dnivra,  then restart x06:22
dnivracoz_, be right back.06:22
kmystfiber: tis what i did with my 160 to 500gb drive in the laptop06:22
fiberkmyst: i had thought about that... but in the end it's just as far out there as my approach! the UUID's would have had to be modified anyways right?06:22

shawn146can anybody help me?06:23
mbblooking for suggestions for a USB headset that will work, running Hardy.06:23
joshua__sepehr: if I setup SSH access, would you be able to do it for me?06:23
joshua__I'm not too good with this stuff.06:23
sunil2my paste bin url is "http://paste.ubuntu.com/349823/"06:23
wowotofiber: use /dev/sdaX  instead of uuid06:23
sunil2now tell me how to free up my disc space06:24
dnivracoz_, yeah it did change. but what if I want it to be like the ones i downloaded. think I should just install them as if they were normal themes and not login screen themes?06:24
fiberkmyst: strange... i was under the impression that UUID depended on the actual HD not the any modifiable data06:24
kmystfiber: try specifying the /dev instead of using uuid's06:24
fiberwowoto: kmyst: where would you recommend I do this?06:24
coz_dnivra,  then you have to NOT download the  gdm themes but instead a new  gtk2 theme06:24
xiongkmyst, Now I think I was wrong, sorry. I may be chasing a dead end.06:24
wowotosunil2: 1 reinstall  2 mount a file to enlarge it06:24
wowotofiber: maybe in  :   /etc/fstab06:25
coz_dnivra,  customization has been severly  cut down with this new approach06:25
coz_shawn146,   are you trying to play videos?06:25
fiberwowoto: nah, it's not getting that far06:25
kmystfiber: iirc i just went from a gutsy install, did the dd/resize then upgraded to hardy then intrepid and that was it06:25
shawn146yes coz_06:25
coz_shawn146,  which player are you using?06:25
dnivracoz_, let me try one more of those so called "gdm" themes.06:25
fiberkmyst: i just may do that... luckily i still have the original06:25
wowotofiber: o ,sorry..06:25
coz_dnivra,   no no no  no gdm themes will work anymore06:26
shawn_I have two SATA hard drives plugged into an old MSI that has both IDE and SATA ports and it used to always ruN IDE but now I just plugged in two SATA drives but Ubuntu install CDs are not seeing them06:26
emanuxHappy New Year to everyone :)06:26
fiberwowoto: no worries, thanks trying though06:26
coz_dnivra,  ONLY  gtk2 themes06:26
kmystfiber: in the fstab and most likely grub's menu.lst06:26
emanuxhas anyone try google chrome?06:26
shawn_emanux, You too06:26
dnivracoz_, so is it possible to install the gdm themes as gtk2 themes? some workaround?06:26
kmystxiong: well if you figure it out let me know06:26
coz_emanux,  I use chromium here06:26
dnivracoz_, I'll check it out and see if it's possible to pass of a gdm as a gtk2.06:27
fiberkmyst: ok, i may have found some other clue... when trying to grub-install it again i get "Could not find device for /boot: Not found or not a block device."06:27
coz_dnivra,  no not that I am aware of ...as I said customizatioin is severly limited on this new version06:27
emanuxcoz_: how was it?06:27
xiongkmyst, I'm thinking that a LTS is scheduled for April.06:27
coz_emanux,  its fast of course but I found a bug ..at least on this system..where full screen flash will not go fullscreen06:27
kmystfiber: good clue06:27
coz_emanux,  but flash is working with it much much better than on firefox06:27
dnivracoz_, wish I'd stuck with Jaunty. First dsl didn't work and now customisation. just great.06:28
xiongkmyst, https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/universe-bugs/2009-July/107765.html06:28
coz_dnivra,  yeah this new approach is very irritating to say the least but I dont think it is going to go back06:28
kmystxiong: well currently i'm out of luck with video if i upgrade again so i'm holding out trying to make something work on my spare drive before i commit full time06:28
dnivracoz_, yeah the gdm ones don't work. Damn the look so cool. wish they worked worked.06:28
emanuxcoz_, ic...it is not available in ubuntu repo right?06:28
shawn146can anyone hear me?06:28
coz_emanux,  hold on I think I have the  dep link06:28
dnivracoz_, no no no! man this is so irritating. Ubuntu's becoming restrictive like win is now.06:29
knuck887? f-spot crashes on start up. any suggestions on how to fix it06:29
coz_emanux,    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu karmic main    and   deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/chromium-daily/ppa/ubuntu karmic main06:29
dnivracoz_, but yeah well it's still can do stuff win can't. but they're chopping everything down.06:29
kmystfiber: did you cpio /boot when you did all that?06:30
coz_dnivra,  well I believe there were valid reasons this occurred  however irritiating it is :)06:30
emanuxcoz_ , thanks...i will give it a shot06:30
shawn146can anybody help me with an Xv issue with karmi06:30
fiberkmyst: yessir.... and stage1 is safe and in its correct place (/boot/grub/stage1)06:31
dnivracoz_, I guess so; people who make Ubuntu what it is; put a lot of thought. Gotta hand it to team Ubuntu.06:31
coz_shawn146,  you are trying to play videos correct?   which player are you using ?   totem.,.. mplayer...vlc?06:31
kmystfiber: out of curiousity what options did you feed cpio?06:31
shawn146yes i said totem06:31
morphiasdnivra, you got to remember, that canocial tries to cater ubuntu to be useable by people "who just want their computer to work".  somtimes they restrict things that they may perceive "unstable" :-P06:32
* morphias wishes he could spell06:32
silv3r_m00nis there any software using which I can use my ftp server as a online storage across computers.....similar to dropbox ?06:33
dnivramorphias: which of course is a large section of the people who want their computer to do so. Too few would like to crash their computers like we do right?06:33
shawn146sorry coz_ i accidentally closed the terminal06:34
shawn146i am a noob to ubuntu06:34
wowotosilv3r_m00n: can "vsftpd" do ?06:34
coz_shawn146,  no problem06:34
silv3r_m00nthat's a ftp server I guess06:34
raymondHi everyone and Happy New Year. I am unable to get my networking working between my home computers. I can "see" the other computers an the hub/modem (Netgear DG834GUv5 - Runs as samba server) on the network via  Places>network but get an "unable to receive share list" error. I have installed Samba and also smb4k. I can also see the computers with that (And have set up (tried to) samba drives...06:35
shawn146and i need to get this movie running before its too late tonight06:35
raymond...which I can see, but I get an error 13 (Permission denied). These drives are NTFS (I've migrated from an XP Pro system)06:35
silv3r_m00nI need a tool which can turn my ftp space into a hardrive.....so that when someone else puts files there they get syncronised to a local folder automatically06:35
edbiansilv3r_m00n, rsync06:35
edbiansilv3r_m00n, or symlinks, I'm not sure which might work better06:35
fiberkmyst: i cannot find it... i found the exact command online on some blog06:35
coz_shawn146,  ok did you install   ubuntu-restricted-extras?06:35
shawn146no wats that06:35
morphiasdnivra, well i hardly know anything about computers other than what i read in readmes' and im sorry you experience lockups, but i haven't.06:36
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Are you looking for it to get syncronized automatically everytime a file is added?06:36
silv3r_m00nedbian: exactly06:36
edbiansilv3r_m00n, symlinks06:36
silv3r_m00nsomething that a service called dropbox does06:36
edbiansilv3r_m00n, I am vaguely familiar with dropbox.  Do you know what a symlink is?06:36
kmystfiber: hmm well i suppose since the data is there the stumble point was installing grub as you said right?06:37
silv3r_m00nedbian: no I don't06:37
fiberkmyst: correct06:37
dnivracoz_, or anyone who does know; how do I revert to the old login screen?06:37
sepehrum im using Quassel IRC and just accidentally turned off the menu bar...how do i get it back06:37
silv3r_m00nbrianherman: ldap06:37
kmystfiber: what was the error?06:37
silv3r_m00nbrianherman: has it a gui ?06:37
coz_dnivra,  same way just choose the  original gtk2 theme06:37
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Alright, let me get things straight first so I can be of more help.  You have an FTP server running on ubuntu right?  And that server has some folder.  Inside that folders are all the things shared correct?06:37
Psineticubuntu 9.10 64bit, how do i get a list of all the software i've installed?06:37
silv3r_m00nedbian: exactly06:38
kmystPsinetic: like just the packages installed?06:38
dnivracoz_, yeah I know that; but any idea what is the default gtk2 theme?06:38
edbiansilv3r_m00n, You have another folder that you want basically to be an exact copy of the ftp folder?06:38
=== rw is now known as rww
Psinetickmyst, i'm about to reinstall windows on here and use ubuntu on a VM and need to get a list of all the software i've installed so i can reinstall it later06:38
silv3r_m00nedbian: exactly06:38
coz_dnivra,    HumanLogin06:38
dnivracoz_, thanks.06:39
edbiansilv3r_m00n, What is the name of the ftp folder and the other folder?06:39
silv3r_m00nedbian: and this folder must be syncronised across multiple computers06:39
morphiasPsinetic, you can click APPLICATIONS -> UBUNTU SOFTWARE CENTER and after that loads use the drop box to "Installed packages"06:39
RichardHsliv3r_m00n rsync sound like what you need06:39
coz_dnivra,  no problem06:39
silv3r_m00nedbian: on server its pfiles and on local system it cud be a folder in the home of a user06:39
slinkeeyJust  stopped in to see how many people were not partying06:39
edbiansilv3r_m00n, pause, the folders are on two different computers?06:39
RichardHwell, there may be a problem if you sync to multiple computers06:39
iOmletteEveryone? :P06:39
kmystPsinetic: sudo dpkg --getselections | grep '[[:space:]]install$' | awk '{print $1}' > package_list should dump out everything into the file package_list and you could be able to cat package_list | xargs sudo apt-get install to rebuild the system06:40
silv3r_m00nedbian: the ftp is on my webhost .... and a folder on my pc , another pc , and another pc etc06:40
ardchoillePsinetic: dpkg --get-selections > /path/selectionfile   #This gets a list of all packages installed06:40
dnivraslinkeey: guess some have crossed over already to 2010 long ago. I did 12 hours ago.06:40
kmystPsinetic: that's how i'd do it06:40

silv3r_m00nedbian: webhost is on a web server.... and pcs are mix of windows and ubuntu06:41
ardchoillePsinetic: Read the end comments in my replies06:41
edbiansilv3r_m00n, The webhost is some remote server?  You have what kind of access to it?  Only ftp ?06:41
silv3r_m00nyah remote server..... I have the cpanel of it , ftp of it etc06:42
Psineticardchoille, how do i know where /path/selectionfile is?06:42
ardchoillePsinetic: you set that to whatever you want06:42
edbiansilv3r_m00n, That is a toughie, so you want to sync a local folder with the ftp folder.  Is that right?06:42
ardchoillePsinetic: it just dumps a list to that file06:42
Psineticah ok06:42
silv3r_m00nedbian: exactly06:42
Psineticthanks ardchoille and kmyst06:42
silv3r_m00nand it shud be automatic06:42
ardchoillePsinetic: but you have to use that same file when you install later06:43
silv3r_m00nmay be a service needs to run on all computers to check for new files every now and he06:43

burzkisilv3r_m00n, no expert here, but could you set it up as couchdb?06:43
dnivraardchoille: about that command; when I do it there are a few labelled "deinstall". will there be any consequences of those when I do reinstall the packages?06:43

emanuxcoz_, i just installed chromium and fire up youtube06:44

emanuxwhen i hit full screen, it goes full screen06:44
fiberkmyst: ok, i'm gonna restart and test something.... brb06:44
burzkisilv3r_m00n, couch database is what the ubuntuOne cload platform is based on, platform neutral06:44
dnivraardchoille: alright; just clearing a doubt I had that's all. thanks.06:44
kmystfiber: k good luck06:44
coz_emanux,  cool06:44
emanuxyeah really cool, thanks06:45
ardchoillednivra: It should be ok, I got that command on the advice of veteran linux users06:45
edbiansilv3r_m00n,  I am not aware of couchdb.  It is tough to get things to automatically sync without more access to the ftp server.  You could write a cron job that runs a script every hour or something.  Then the script could check the ftp server and sync things for you on your network. but instant updates is hard without access to the server.06:45
dnivraardchoille: oh cool! I was told to use the one I said from this very channel. so was wondering if there's any difference between the two.06:46
silv3r_m00nthere is access to server .... ??06:46
ardchoillednivra: What was yours again?06:46
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Can you write a script to run on the server?  What OS is the server running?06:46
silv3r_m00nI can run cronjob on server06:46
burzkisilv3r_m00n, http://couchdb.apache.org/06:46
silv3r_m00nI don't think the server needs anything.... there needs to be a local utility on all pcs06:47
RichardHsilv3r_m00n what edbian is saying is that you will probably need root access to install or configure stuff06:47
silv3r_m00nRichardH: on server or on local computers ?06:47
silv3r_m00non local computers I have root on all06:47
dnivraardchoille: sorry connection started lagging severely. it's "sudo dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall:06:47
silv3r_m00nand server is a remote ftp06:48
edbiansilv3r_m00n, I'm reading and thinking about how to do this06:48
Psineticardchoille, it keeps telling me it's a directory, what is the file extention i should use when exporting?06:48
ardchoillednivra: hmm.. never seen or heard that one06:48
alkisgXorg.conf isn't used/needed by default, so what's a good way to select a certain resolution per machine (not per user)? I've put an `xrandr` call to /etc/gdm/Init/Default and that works for me, but isn't there any better way?06:48
ardchoillePsinetic: you can use .txt06:48
silv3r_m00nI thot there must be some tools for this already on linux06:48
Psinetick thanks06:48
dnivraardchoille, same as yours except that the entries labelled "deinstall" aren't selected.06:48
sabgentoncan i install ubuntu-9.10-server-i386.iso to usb?06:49
sabgentonimage / whateverf06:49
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, server.  if you have something on each computer, all you may be able to do is run a program to connect to the server using ftp and then download the files.  The problem is when the same file gets edited on more than one computer.  You will not be able to merge the change data06:49
dnivraardchoille, if you've uninstalled a lot of apps, then try the command out and diff it with "sudo dpkg --get-selections"06:49
c3101!usb-creator-gtk @sabgenton06:49
silv3r_m00nmerging is not necessary.......a file may be locked or overwritten....thats totally fine06:49
RichardHthe issue is that the server only gives you ftp access (port 21).  So, your solution isn't to sync but to ftp files back and forth.06:50
silv3r_m00nneither wud there be any online editing as such06:50
sabgentonc3101: i am using that on windows06:50
sabgentonand it says md5sum fail06:50
ardchoillednivra: Ah, ok06:50
c3101sabgenton, then your download of the iso was not succesfull06:50
edbiansilv3r_m00n, RichardH The tough part is having the computer re-sync everytime the ftp folder is modified.06:50
RichardHI haven't seen any ftp software that will get changed files and then upload changes06:50
silv3r_m00nthe thing is , every employee wud be given a folder and he must put all code and updates in his folder so that the box can view06:51
RichardHyou will either get all the files or upload all files06:51
edbiansilv3r_m00n, You could very easily write a script that automatically mounts the ftp server, copies everything to a local folder, and unmounts and run it via 1 terminal command.06:51
silv3r_m00nedbian: and run that again and again ?06:51
RichardHis this code going to "run" on the server or is it only for sharing?06:51
alkisgrsync also works with tftp06:51

silv3r_m00nalkisg: I need a gui too06:52
edbiansilv3r_m00n, I'm assuming that the entire reason for syncing the files locally is so that you can work offline.  If there is no need to unmount the ftp server then there is no need to copy everything locally.06:52

edbiansilv3r_m00n, Simply have the people edit the files live on the ftp server...06:53
silv3r_m00nedbian: copying locally wud be really helpful if it wrks automatically in the background06:53

silv3r_m00nthey key thing is remote-to-local synchronisation shud be automatic06:54
edbiansilv3r_m00n, So I'm an employee.  I log into my linux computer and then I open my local file with all of the files from the ftp server in it.  I make changes and changes all day.  Add files delete them edit them whatever.  Then at the end of the day I copy them all to the ftp server again?06:54

edbiansilv3r_m00n, But if more than 1 employee does that then they will be overwriting each others changes when they write back to the ftp server.  Unless they each have some small portion or something...06:55
silv3r_m00nedbian: and again .... this particular local folder has special powers....putting anything inside it automatically synchronises it with ftp serve06:55

sabgentonis that ok?06:56
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, I meant software that you can download and install on the server.  Not a service like dropbox.  But in this case, dropbox would probably be the easiest06:56
sabgentonto install the server iso i mean06:56
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Are you familiar with "mounting"06:56
XfactI have read everything...but my problem is different....so I added this paste bin note to show you guys....06:57

edbiansilv3r_m00n, I'm not very good with ftp servers but can't you mount the ftp server locally on each machine?06:57

joljamI have a desktop connected to a wireless router thru an ethernet cable... I also have a wireless printer...how can I print wirelessly06:58
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Do you understand what I'm saying?06:58
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, fuse would require you to use smb which you do not have access to on the server.06:58
silv3r_m00nedbian: yes... I can ... but that has a little issue ......trying to edit over there...every time ctrl-s is pressed there will be a 1-5 sec delay06:58
silv3r_m00nedbian: in dropbox what happens...everything appears local....and seamlessly in the background the online storage gets updated gradually06:59
RichardHedbian, you can't mount because silv3r_m00n is using a server at a hosting company so only has ftp access not smb06:59
alkisgRichardH: he should be able to use gvfs to mount it06:59
edbianRichardH, So there's two issues06:59
edbianalkisg, Are you sure...  He only has ftp access.  I think you MUST use a web browser.  Am I wrong?07:00
alkisgedbian: gvfs is when you try to visit an ftp site with nautilus07:00
RichardHedbian, alkisg says he should be able to use gvfs but I'm not familiar using this to mount an ftp folder.07:00
alkisgYou see everything "locally" under ~/.gvfs07:00
silv3r_m00nmounting a ftp server as a drive and working in it works....but it still appears remote............the thing shud be that everything appears local and in the background remote synchronisation "keeps" working07:00
silv3r_m00nall day07:01
edbiansilv3r_m00n, If you've got it mounted I suggest you make a hard symlink07:01
crash2108My battery is really about to die.  Does anyone have any insight into this?  Usuually it's some small stupid thing.07:01
silv3r_m00nwhat is a hard symlink ?07:01
rkjis there a variant of the "ls" command that will just list the subdirectories in the current directory?07:01
mewayubuntu just logged me out for no reason any clue why I was in the middle of an important graphics developing...?07:01
edbiansilv3r_m00n, A soft symlink is basically a shortcut in windows.  I will explain how to make them.07:01
silv3r_m00nalkisg: I can see locally ?07:01
edbiansilv3r_m00n, I soft symlink is only a pointer07:01
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, the problem is that you need a program monitoring the shared folder constantly so this program/script knows when a file has been changed or added07:02
edbiansilv3r_m00n, a hard symlink is an exact copy.  It is like syncronizing two files or folders07:02
silv3r_m00nedbian: hmmm07:02
edbianRichardH, The hard symlink should do what he wants.07:02
alkisgsilv3r_m00n: there's no caching, so it's like you said, 3-5 secs delay every time you save somthing07:02
RichardHthis may work on one machine but it will probably require a customized application for it to work the way you want07:02
silv3r_m00nwhat next ?07:02
silv3r_m00nedbian: will the hard symlink still give the effect of remote saving ?07:03
rkjbizarrely, the command "ls -d" hust lists a single directory "." - not too useful.07:03
alkisgsilv3r_m00n: I don't understand why rsync isn't what you want.07:03
louis__6th gen ipod with ubuntu anyone?07:03
louis__ipod classic07:03
RichardHedbian, I think he's trying to avoid the delay he is going to experience.  Some software (depending on what he is using) will not handle this properly and may crash or just have a really annoying freeze while it's saving.07:03
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Just try this "ln /path/to/ftp/ /path/to/local/folder"07:03
alkisgsilv3r_m00n: rsync "read" on login, and rsync "write" before logout.07:03
rkjlouis_ I use gtkpod and it is great, not sure what gen my ipod is though.07:04
silv3r_m00nedbian: let me try07:04
edbiansilv3r_m00n, what alkisg said also seems to solve the issue (although it isn't exactly what you wanted)07:04
louis__rkj: i just bought the 160 GB classic under the impression that it would work cuz of something i read but its giving me troubles07:05
alkisgIf you want to rsync periodically, you can also do that with a script... "rsync, sleep, rsync etc"07:05

coz_dnivra,   reinstall?   did you uninstall something?07:11
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Well you do have another option.  Learn how to use rsync and simply rsync twice a day.  You can even automate it to run as a script at startup and shutdown if you like.  But I don't think there is anyway to automatically push those files07:11
dnivracoz_, no I didn't. just want to get the old login screen back.07:12

RichardHedbian, silv3r_m00n, to my knowledge, konqueror or nautilus won't mount an ftp folder.  I've never seen any evidence of that.  I may be wrong though.07:12
edbiansilv3r_m00n, It is possible that there is a way.  I surely don't know it though :(07:12

dnivracoz_, you don't have to sit and figure it out; some configuration file is all that needs to be changed; which should with a reinstall of some app right?07:12
coz_dnivra,  that should be the one I mentioned  HumanLogin07:13
edbiansilv3r_m00n, You're trying to combine 2 things.  An ftp server (that is remote) and all the functionality of a file server.07:13
coz_dnivra,  no there is nothing to reinstall   if you use that dbus command and choose HumanLogin it should return to that login screen07:13
silv3r_m00nedbian: may be yes07:14
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Why do you need your files on a remote ftp server over the internet anyway?  It seems to only be a hassle for you07:14

rwwMutro: because you're not running it with administrative privileges. run `gksudo wireshark` instead.07:16
edbiansilv3r_m00n, Well I suggest you set up a file server for your office.  That will handle everybody working all day.  At the end of the night have the file server automatically sync the files to the ftp server.  I don't really see the need for instant backup but that's my opinion.07:16

edbiansilv3r_m00n, ha ha07:16
RichardHsilv3r_m00n,  curlftpfs may work but not on the windows systems.  One thing you should watch out for is that many hosting companies expressly state in their terms of service that you cannot use your ftp space as a storage medium. (I own and IT consulting company and we deal with hosting companies all the time.)07:16

edbianRichardH, OIC, I guess....07:18
edbiansilv3r_m00n, /etc/fstab is what mounts filesystems automatically. If you can mount it using the mount command this config file is what you're looking for.07:18
RichardHedbian, it's a hosting account which means that it's for hosting your website and email only.07:19
silv3r_m00nno its not mounted using the mount command but the curlftpfs command07:19

RichardHsilv3r_m00n, the other issue you may run into is bandwidth.  Even though some hosts give you unlimited bandwidth, it's not really unlimited.  The only way you MAY not have issues is if you have a dedicated server and not a shared server.07:20

alkisgsilv3r_m00n: I mean that if you mount the folder, and then save a file in that folder with ctrl+s, you'll get the usual 3-5 secs delay. It doesn't matter that you've mounted it...07:21

edbiansunil2, What program?07:23
silv3r_m00nthat too won't be an issue07:23
silv3r_m00nedbian: I think I can write a script .................that will ..........keep an eye on a local folder...........synchronise it with remote every 1 minute........and keep and eye on the remote server ..........and do the same07:23
silv3r_m00nand let everything go on "locally"07:24
sunil2did you find the url  http://paste.ubuntu.com/349843/07:24
edbiansunil2, Yes07:24
daedroi accidentally recursively chmodded my www folder and i assume thats bad, so im trying to get it back to default -rw-x---- or something, and i read thats chmod -R 644 ./, works for 777, but 644 makes all files say "unknown type" and disappear07:24
edbiansilv3r_m00n, A script can def. do that.  It is not the best way to solve the problem though.  I will (against better judgement) answer questions if you had any about writing such a script.07:24
crawlerubuntunewbie: patch the bird's kernel with the latest module neosporin3.2.4beta07:25
alkisgdaedro: directories need 755, so you need to run 2 `find` commands (find -type d and find -type f -exec chmod...)07:25
sunil2please tell me the solution for the url  http://paste.ubuntu.com/349843/07:25
alkisgsunil2: please stop it07:25
silv3r_m00nalkisg: yes07:25
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, one issue is that you may need root privileges on the server to install and run this script.07:25
edbiansunil2, My only guess: un-install and re-install the app.  Do you know how to do that?07:26
sunil2can you tell me?07:26

RichardHsilv3r_m00n, here's another solution. do everything locally and maybe have a temporary server locally where a shared folder is mounted on each workstation.  Then have this server use and backup program such as this http://www.educ.umu.se/~cobian/index.htm  that supports ftp backups upload everything to your server.  But, it's only one way.07:28

RichardHsilv3r_m00n, I don't think you can use rsync to sync to an ftp server.  rsync is a different protocol and doesn't use the same commands.07:37
RichardHfor ftp, you need to use GET and PUT commands.  rsync doesn't do that07:38

RichardHsilv3r_m00n, what you might not understand is that ftp is a protocol.  it uses certain commands.  It's a way to connect in otherwords.  rsync and ftp are two different protocols.  you don't actuallly have access to a folder.  everything goes through the ftp daemon then that daemon writes to the folder07:39
daedrois it normal to be unable to chmod a file as root thats under your regular user, and is 777 -rwxrwxrwx, and shows up with ls, command works on other files. just not ones in this specific subdirectory.. subdirectory is chmod 755 drwxr-xr-x07:40

RichardHsilv3r_m00n, sharing a folder on a local computer and the ftp folder on your server are two completely different things.  It's like someone speaking Russian is trying to talk to somone that speaks Chinese.07:40
sunil2please find the url  for installing office http://paste.ubuntu.com/349848/07:41

edbianecart, "gksu gedit /etc/hostname"07:41
RichardHdaedro, how are you trying to change the permission?07:41
edbianecart, editing that file will make it change next time you boot.  To make it change instantly "sudo hostname <newHostname>"07:42

silv3r_m00nno more ftp restriction in this case.... any daemon can run on the server computer07:45
edbiansunil2, The issue you're having is very very minor :)  We just can't find the package name.  Try using the add/remove program in the menu.  Do you know what I'm talking about?07:45
sunil2can you expand further?07:46
RichardHsilv3r_m00n, first, you probably can't with the software that normally comes on a typical linux installation.  First, you will need something that continually monitors the folder.  The only way I can think of this even coming close to that is a script that scans the folder every few seconds continually. Keep in mind that dropbox has custom software on the server and on your computer.  it's not just a typical server07:46

RichardHI've been looking for something similar and can't find it.  Windows has something built in that does that.  Anyway, in the situation you stated, you can probably use rsync as long as you can mount the shared folder using smb07:49

edbianRiddick, Probably has to do with the file permissions.  I've never done with with a mac :( I'm not sure how the hell permissions work with MAC07:54
RichardHsilv3r_moon, here's one issue.  You will either have a shared folder on each workstation that rsync will sync with 1 folder on the server, or you will have one folder on the server that will sync with one folder on each workstation which  means rsync will run multiple times but that will be a problem syncing folders to each workstation.07:54
RichardHthis gets confusing.07:54

omaru got cs4 full?08:19
RichardHomar, you might want to look into wine.  photoshop is a windows/mac program and doesn't run natively on linux.08:19
ae86-drifteromar, yes08:19
omari have wine lol08:19
omari just need key08:19
omari got tricks for cs208:20
ubuntunewbieusunbut 9.10 have a safely remove usb , and umount .what is the different ?08:20
omarare the cs4 ones diffrent?08:20
hollohsunil2: sudo apt-get install openoffice.org08:20
ubuntunewbietesting with 9.10 have a safely remove usb , and umount .what is the different ?08:20
Dezineomar, you probably don't want to hear this but have you tried GIMP? As a Windows user I have found GIMP to be a worthy replacement of Photoshop.08:20
skyllook. More how to test the drivers in ubuntu? has some terminal command that does this?08:20
omari now08:20
omari just wanted to say08:20
RichardHomar, does that mean that...uuuhhhh...you didn't buy photoshop?08:20
FloodBot1omar: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.08:20
hollohskyllo: i don't know08:20
ae86-drifterDezine, do you know the name of that gimp mod that makes it look like PS?08:21
omari didnt buy08:21
DezineHmm, ae86-drifter I don't know unless you mean gimpshop08:21
omari just want ps cs2 and i just need a nice key :)08:21
AtharHow can you make the icons for the locations in Dolphin smaller? Apparently, it remains unimpressed when I change the icon/preview size for the "icons" view.08:21
CircsIf I have a about 15 fsck0000.rec files on my sd card does that mean it is dieing?08:21
ae86-drifternice key? lol.. u mean instructions?08:22
RichardHomar, then you will still have the same issues in linux as in Windows.  I don't think anyone here will help with a bootlegged copy of software.  Maybe I'm wrong.08:22
Dezineomar, I don't think anyone here will help you with illegally obtained software08:22
kinja-sheepomar: Need? You mean you want? Not need?08:22
omari thought runing ps on ubuntu needed like a special key08:22
RichardHomar, if you didn't buy the software, it's stolen.  software needs a key that you get when you buy the software.08:23
kinja-sheep!piracy | omar08:23
ubottuomar: piracy discussion and other questionably legal practices are not welcome in the Ubuntu channels. Please take this discussion elsewhere or abstain from it altogether. This includes linking to pirated software, music, and video. Also see !guidelines and !o4o08:23
ae86-driftercan someone please tell me how i can roll back my kernel upgrade, bootin from a live cd08:23
DezineJust use GIMP, it's not as hard as PS users act. Sure, there's a learning curve but it is doable08:23
Guest11434Does anyone here play World of Warcraft on Linux?08:23
DezineI do Guest1143408:24
RichardHomar, if you "get" a car but didn't pay for it and the legal owner didn't give it to you, then...uuuhhh...you get the picture.08:24
omarpirate bay its ma place dude08:24
xiongRichardH, Are you pretty solid on wine? After the karmic upgrade, I'm having some trouble with it -- seems previously installed apps won't run with it now.08:24
ae86-drifterps cost about $1000 i think08:24
Guest11434No, I'm not looking for a WoW discussion, merely help in getting it running in Wine08:25
RichardHxiong, sorry, I haven't had time to play with wine in a long time.08:25
morphiasGuest11434, i got WoW to run in wine before when i was playing it08:25
DezineGuest11434, check out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WorldofWarcraft08:25
morphiasits pretty simple.08:25
xiongRichardH, Okay, thanks just the same. Not a high priority for me today.08:25
=== tato is now known as tato42
morphiasbut i learned that if you have a old intel card, it craps out in linux (no opengl 2.0 support).  works better in windows.08:26
ae86-drifterwhat would cause my pc to boot up and just sit there flashing on and off at the login shell08:26
DezineI have an GeForce 5900 and it runs pretty well08:26
morphiasi envy you Dezine :-P08:27
DezineThis setup is about 5 years old08:27
morphiashowever that a desktop?08:27
DezineI also have a 9600 but the mobo fried :|08:27
RichardHomar, no offense, but most "techie" type people look down on piracy. Once reason is that many of them may be programmers themselves.  It's usually (not always) the wannabe's that "need" this type of software.  The rest of us can find free, open source equivalents and can learn to use them to accomplish what we need.08:27
Guest11434Thanks Dezine, I was using that earlier today. I created a launcher script with the help from this site http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/How-to-Setup-World-of-Warcraft-on-Linux.html and when I try to get WoW to play my screen goes black and the gauntlet-cursor loads, but nothing else happens.08:27
morphiasya. i was talking down the lines about older dell laptops08:27
DezineWhat care do you have Guest11434?08:28

ircuserI want to use "Super" to start "Run Application" along with  "Alt+F2" (keep both). How to do it?08:28
ae86-drifterwhat would cause my pc to boot up and just sit there flashing on and off repeatedly at the login: shell08:28
RichardHae86-drifter, is this windows or linux?08:28
DezineGuest11434, do you have drivers installed?08:29
ae86-drifterRichardH, it is ubuntu 9.10 server ed08:29
Guest11434Yeah I do08:29
morphiasDezine, that would work on his laptop after he has catalyst properly installed ;)08:29
morphiasi mean desktop lol08:29
RichardHae86-drifter, is it the command line login to the gui?08:29
Guest11434Actually... I might not come to think of it. Allow me to explain.08:30
ae86-drifterRichardH, the screen goes black and flickers on every couple of seconds, and no, server ed doesnt have a gui08:30
DezineGuess I don't know, I never had issues so never had to troubleshoot08:30
omarim not a wanabe or none08:30
omari just want to use ps and learn how to use it08:30
ae86-drifterits just where it normally boots to.... the login prompt...08:30
morphiasomar, pm08:30
Dezineomar, then buy it.08:30
Tm_Tomar: sorry, no support for pirated software, nor discussion, thanks08:30
DezineOr, learn GIMP, which is free and legally available.08:30
itsnotstalkinggimp is pretty good08:31
Guest11434This isn't actually my computer I'm installing it on. I'm installing it for my mother. On my computer I can see ATI catalyst control center under Applications since I installed my drivers. I don't see that under Applications on my mother's computer so they may not have actually installed.08:31
DezineSeems odd to use an open source os like Ubuntu and then come into the official chat asking how to use pirated software08:31
itsnotstalkingim not sure it support vectoring? which i dont know how to do anyways08:31
Guest11434Unless 4670s don't have catalyst centers for some reason.08:32
DezineYeah itsnotstalking, but inkscape is pretty good for vector08:32
xdrrWith bind9 in the forward lookup zone do you need to enter the FQDN for the NS entry?08:32
Guest11434Our Brands are different too. I have Sapphire, she has XFX.08:32
itsnotstalkingDezine, good to know!08:32
RichardHae86-drifter, I would have to say it's the monitor. At least start there.  At that login prompt, there's just basic text so I don't think it's the graphics card.08:32
CircsNot to be obnoxious, but I'll ask again. Does finding a bunch (15 or so) of file fragments left over from fsck bode poorly for the health of the drive involved?08:32
itsnotstalkingyeah, open source people hate pirating, bill gates loves it tho, so go nutz08:32
RichardHomar, you can download a trial and use that.08:33
Dezineomar has made his gracious exit lol08:33
ae86-drifterRichardH, i have used a monitor from a pc that works fine, as i dont normally plug a screen into the server08:33
aaron11Hello Im having a problem with my laptop. There is a white line comming straight downwards and its a BIG problem, this seems to happen even before booting. Im googleing like a mad man but some people say its an hardware fault. I just added some poison (Anti-Cocoroach) to the area where the computer needs cooling because cocoroaches will get in and spoil it anyway :). Im running Karmic Koala.08:33
Dezineitsnotstalking, have you ever been on http://www.osalt.com/? Has a good list of Open Source alternatives.08:34
RichardHae86-drifter, what video card is in the system?08:34
Guest11434Well I suppose I'll try installing the drivers again. Maybe there was a problem last time.08:34
Circsaaron11, Definitely H/W08:34
morphiasaaron11, liquids dont work with electronics08:34
ae86-drifterRichardH, the server has all brand new hardware, i think it maybe to do with an update or something i installed, do u know how i could roll back the kernel? i cannot get shell access and also lost SSH access, it is using the onboard video card, its all brand new and was working fine when i first installed the OS08:34
itsnotstalkingDezine, no but i just book marked it, i usually use google08:34
an0nmat1raaron11: white line before booting?08:34
DezineYeah Google is pretty good, which is probably where I found that08:35
aaron11morphias: For your information its chalk08:35
xdrraaron11, i had a similar case but more lines. if the laptop is old check for an old internal modem (worked for me)08:35
aaron11an0nmat1r: Yes. Strait in the middle08:35
aaron11xdrr: Almost only 1 yr old08:35
kinja-sheepaaron11: Take a screenshot. That way we know it's not hardware problem .:o08:36

RichardHae86-drifter, oh, so you don't even get to the login prompt.  are the lights on the keyboard flashing signaling a kernel crash?08:36
xdrraaron11: does it work with any other OS?, or appear during POST?08:36
morphiasRichardH, show <ae86-drifter> how to change the kernel from a recovery cd - if you find it before i do08:37
ircuserI want to use "Super" to start "Run Application" along with  "Alt+F2" (keep both). How to do it?08:37
RichardHae86-drifter, sorry, I'm not at home.  Everyone wants to go to sleep so I need to go.  Sorry08:37
ae86-drifterRichardH, it actually boots a live CD fine, i do not really want to have to reinstall the OS, the kernel loads up and samba loads and everything its just flickering like crazy and i lose keyboard input and SSH08:37
aaron11xdrr: I only have Ubuntu as an Operating System08:37
Dhuskiaaron11, if the line appears before booting, that is to say before there is any electrcal current running through it, then there is definitely a hardware problem.08:37
Dhuskiaaron11, if you access cmos does it still give you the white line?08:38
morphias<ae86-drifter>, there is a way to mount your installation from a live cd08:38
=== matthew is now known as Guest8965
aaron11Dhuski: Whats a cmos08:39
morphiasfrom there, if you older kernels are still left in the installation, you can change GRUB to boot an older version08:39
kinja-sheepircuser: "sudo aptitude install compizconfig-settings-manager" and edit the ALT+F2 thingy. It is in there.08:39
ae86-driftermorphias, yeah i understand i can do that, but then how would i roll my previous upgrade back08:39
xdrraaron11: if you are able to, shut it down (or force shut it down) then when it boots and possibly displays a logo see if it appears there08:39
aaron11kinja-sheep: http://imagebin.org/77793 I dont know if its there08:39
kinja-sheepaaron11: Hardware Problem. I don't see a line. :O08:40
ae86-driftermorphias, i think it may have caused it, but im not sure as it hasnt been rebooted for weeks, then booted up like this one day08:40
aaron11xdrr: What computer do you have08:40
xdrraaron11: The one that was having the problem was a toshiba satellite laptop08:41
ae86-driftermorphias, So after booting a live CD what would you suggest i do then?08:41
skyllovoip which was better adapted to the new version of ubuntu?08:41
morphiasdo you know how to mount filesystems? or should i pull that up for you?08:41
morphiasae86-drifter, ~08:42
aaron11xdrr: "TOSHIBA: Leading Inovation" thats the first thing that happens when you startup. In the same way my white line is comming during that point08:42
morphiasaaron11, check your spec manual and see about looking at the connections for the display (seems bios related? )08:44
xdrraaron11: if the line appears at the moment your screen is turned on e.g. it beeps and displays the logo then i would look at something hardware related, e.g. modem, bad gfx connector etc08:44
skyllovoip which was better adapted to the new version of ubuntu?08:44
aaron11xdrr: Could it be because I applied Poison08:44
xdrraaron11: note sure what you mean by poison?08:46
aaron11xdrr: Anti-Cocoroach chalk08:47
aaron11xdrr: I applied it to the machine08:47
xdrraaron11: LOL, that might just do it08:48

morphiashowever sunil2, you can resize partitions by using a live cd with ubuntu09:27
mancoyes the ati driver09:27
Vituzmain pc nvidia.. sep fileserver/videos is the ati..09:27
mancouninstall the current driver09:27
mancowell i have only one pc09:27
unkmarMy adobe flash audio is broken.  Help?09:27
mancoandonno how to sync 209:28
VituzI have a couple here... but only 2 with monitors at my desk09:28
sunil2i am having ubuntu-9.04 version cd09:28
morphiasunkmar, 32 bit or 64 bit?09:28
blackest_knightunkmar:  have you rebooted ?09:28
bazhello, my new years resolution is to amass power, can someone make me an op pls. thank you09:28
unkmarblackest_knight: I have to reboot?  crud.09:28
Vituzcrap already almost 5am... gotta jet.. thanks for pointing me in a diff direction09:28
lstarnesbaz: you won't be made an op hehre if you ask09:28
Vituzcya later and happy new years :)09:28
bazlstarnes, how come09:28
mancohappy new year09:28
sunil2is resize partions possible with ubuntu 9.04 version cd????09:29
unkmarmorphias: probably 32bit despite my CPU being 64 capable.09:29
morphiassunil2, if thats a ubuntu 9.04 live cd, do a live boot, and open partition editor (system -> administartion -> partition)09:29
lstarnesbaz: because being an op is seen as a huge responsibility09:29
blackest_knightbaz: shame to have failed so early in the year ;)09:29
lstarnesbaz: not an object of power09:29
kapuwhy is ubuntu generally used as a derogatory term in the OpenBSD community?  i.e. "don't ask questions here, go use Ubuntu"09:29
bazblackest_knight, i have 364 days before i fail09:29
mancowvdial error - A modem hung up the phone (exit code =16)  anyone know what is d pblm?09:30
lstarneskapu: because it is one of the most frequent choices for beginning *nix users09:30
sunil2how to know whether my ubuntu 9.04 version cd is live cd or not09:30
unkmarblackest_knight: my audio works.  my flash audio does not.  My system had been rebooted many times since the original flash audio failure.  so if you were expecting the usual, reboot magic to work.  Not gonna work this time. :(09:30
blackest_knightunkmar:  i'm not saying you can't get flash audio working again without rebooting but it does seem to restore it most of the time09:30
mancosunil2 boot it up09:30
mancou will know09:30
lstarnessunil2: if it has a desktop environment, it is live09:30
blackest_knightunkmar do you have vlc ?09:31
bazlstarnes, so what can i do to prove that if i were bestowed the power i wouldn't simply ban everyone in the channel because i could?09:31
unkmarblackest_knight: yes.09:31
morphiassunil2, the live cd will ask if you want to use the it as a live cd versus just installating it09:31
unkmarblackest_knight: and it plays audio just fine.09:31
lstarnesbaz: you have already declared that your intention is to amass power09:31
lstarnesbaz: that alone is grounds for dismissal09:32
bazlstarnes, yes this is true, go on09:32
bazlstarnes, oh really09:32
sunil2once i boot from cd i have observed the following options 1.try ubuntu without changing your system.2.install ubuntu3.memory checkup09:32
mancoyea its a live cd09:32
unkmarblackest_knight: I recently has decided to learn to program flash.  Downloaded the adobe flex stuff and went through some .deb installs and such.09:32
unkmarblackest_knight: my flash audio stopped immediately after that.09:32
blackest_knightunkmar try this go to youtube and pick a video it will download it to /tmp copy it out of there and play it with vlc if you have audio its a firefox issue09:32
mancosunil2: the first option09:32
lstarnessunil2: pick the first09:33
bazlstarnes, so what can i say to trick the ops into giving me power?09:33
lstarnesbaz: nothing09:33
sunil2then how to proceed?09:33
lstarnessunil2: once it finishes loading, go to System > Administration and look for the partition editor09:34
mancojust click on it09:34
bazlstarnes, i dont understand, then how does anyone become an op09:34
lstarnesbaz: it varies from channel to channel09:34
hellyeahwhat is reason of this bad view09:34
bazlstarnes, what if i help lots of people here?09:35
lstarnesbaz: but it usually depends on who the ops think would be best based on helpfulness, personality, judgement, and ability to handle various situations09:35
lstarnesbaz: also, this is starting to get off-topic.  I think we need to move this to #ubuntu-offtopic09:35
hellyeahsome look pls09:35
bazlstarnes, thats profiling09:35
blackest_knightunkmar it usually is a firefox issue (although recently the flash installer tends to work you might have a couple of flash versions on your system now thou which might have upset things)09:35
lstarneshellyeah: I saw but I can't figure out a cause or a fix09:36
sunil2after opening partion editor how to proceed????09:36
hellyeahsometimes i have worse eivw09:36
bazlstarnes, are u an op?09:36
hellyeahall view mess sometimes09:36
unkmarblackest_knight: I would love to cleanse it of ALL flash and then reinstall it.09:36
baz /isop lstarnes09:36
lstarnessunil2: I forget exactly how to use gparted09:37
lstarnessunil2: but it shouldn't be too hard to figure it out09:37

ae86-driftermanco, press tab after typing the first few letters09:38
mancoae86-drifter: thanks09:38
bazunkmar, if someone has that before their name that means their an op?09:38
blackest_knightunkmar: synaptic should be able to search for flash and make sure you use remove completely don't want a dodgy config file getting reused when you reinstall09:38
mancoae86-drifter: thanks a lot09:39
blackest_knightbaz you can be an op on channel #baz see /join #baz :)09:39

Corbinhi... uh... anyone want to answer a BCD/GRUB question?09:40
hellyeahusing gparted is very easy09:40
Corbintrying to use BCD as my bootloader... can BCD load grub?09:40
lstarnesCorbin: yes, but you might want to use a tool such as EasyBCD to configure that09:40
Corbinyeah, i tried that09:41
Corbini think the problem is that grub is not installing correctly09:41
Corbinwhen i do the ubuntu installer09:41
Corbinim doing a custom partition setup09:41
mancoCorbin: What is BCD?09:41
bazblackest_knight, hehe09:41
unkmarblackest_knight: vlc was very unhappy with the swf I downloaded09:41
CorbinBCD is the windows bootloader fromVista onwards09:41
mancoCorbin: oh i see09:41
Corbinbut im putting grub on a logical partition inside an extended one09:42
Corbinis that ok?09:42
Corbinand if it is ok, any ideas why grub wouldn't install?09:42
lstarnesCorbin: it worked when I did it09:42
Corbinlike /boot/grub/menu.lst doesnt exist09:42
Corbinand /boot/grub/setup1 isnt there... and so on09:42

Jad-Jtech_: ask10:22
PsyCl0neWould anyone know why on my ubuntu 9.10 desktop the screen randomly disappears?10:22
Jad-JPsyCl0ne: randomly disappears means changing to black?10:22
advil0-netbooktoo many people in here asking quesitons :P10:22
Jad-Jfor seconds.. then back to normal?10:23
PsyCl0neJad-J yes, everything will be shown then it will randomly go black10:23
blackest_knightwell i use it to configure the ports currently my netbook uses mobile broadband and is connected by wifi to a router which uses the netbook as a gateway for my other pc's10:23
advil0-netbook@blackest_knight: any ideas on my issue?10:23

randholblackest_knight, has only one PC, but a Philips dvd player could read it10:24
PsyCl0neJad-J its random, but I know after a reboot bios will show the checks and Illl see the ubuntu loading logo then itll go black but Ill still hear to boot up music10:24
blackest_knightadvil0-netbook: never done anything with wubi , you could boot from the cd and do a standard install10:24
advil0-netbookcan't boot from the CD, netbook10:25

PsyCl0neJad-J, it actually just started like 10 min ago, my dad was brousing the net and the screen went black10:25
Jad-JPsyCl0ne: describe more hte time of the black screen.. and when does it come back? (I want to know maybe it is a pc problem... not from the operating system)10:25
advil0-netbookyeah i might try that, not sure et10:25
blackest_knightrandhol:  is the disk finalized ?10:26
PsyCl0neJad-J kk so it just came back for about 30 seconds and itll be out for about 3-4 min10:26

nigtvHello, I was trying to burn a CD earlier today, so I popped in a blank and the whole system locked up, not even responding to sys req, so I restarted and now it says it cannot find the harddrive. I've checked the bios, changed the cable, checked the switches, among other things, and its not having any effect. I'm running 9.10 on a dell (dont know the model), and am not sure what to try next10:28
blackest_knightrandhol:  time to get googling i think10:28
Jad-JPsyCl0ne: oh okay... but it might be problem from the screen.. or maybe from the cables. you can try by changing screens.. or by installing another OS10:28

blackest_knightnigtv so whats the last thing it says10:37
XfactiKernel: can you explain little more...I am totally new to linux...10:37
nigtvI'm not 100% sure what is going wrong, it doesn't even get to grub, It just comes up with "press f1 to retry boot, press f2 to run setup utility"10:37

Xfactgrawity: I am trying to open a JDK setup .bin file with terminal...but terminal saying 'permission denied'10:39
sunil2how to use gparted?????10:39
grawitysunil2: 1) open gparted10:40
blackest_knightXfact: its a lot easier to get it from the repository10:40
nigtvblackest_knight I have, DSL and ubuntu, both seem to boot from the cd just fine, but both encounter weird issues, the ubuntu cd says it cannot find the drive, and the DSL freezes during the initial start up on almost every device that isnt skipped10:40
grawityXfact: JDK should be in Ubuntu repositories. But if you want to install it from .bin anyway - go to terminal and use 'chmod +x' on that file.10:40
sunil2i have opened the gparted. how to resize my partions10:41

Xfactok thanks10:42
Ov3rf10wXfact, rpm -Uvh file.rpm10:42
blackest_knightnigtv: thats nasty10:42
grawityXfact: Ubuntu is Debian-based, so it uses .deb itself. It's possible to convert .rpm packages to .deb with 'alien', or even install them directly with 'rpm', but it is not recommended.10:43

bazhangXfact, what rpm were you trying to convert10:44
hareshhow can i install it10:45
Xfactrealplayer setup10:45
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)10:45
nigtvharesh just fyi btw for what its worth, during my quests to make it look like windows, its hard to get it to be convincing without using various images from windows, which are somewhat hard to find10:45
bazhangXfact, no need for that10:45
nigtvblackest_knight no, it acts the exact same way10:45
grawityXfact: Why in the world would you need RealPlayer these days...10:45
blackest_knightharesh:  when you find it you will also find the instructions (extract and run the setup script)10:46
Ov3rf10wXfact, download .deb http://www.real.com/linux?src=realhome_linux_bb_0_1_1_0_0_3_0&pcode=rn&opage=realhome_linux_bb10:46
Xfactjust maybe realplayer sounds cool10:46
hareshafter install i can deleat the files right10:46
Xfactthanks for link .deb available10:46
nigtvblackest_knight do you think its safe to assume that ubuntu probably wouldnt just randomly cause the machine to become unbootable entirely on its own? As in is it safe to assume its more likely that this is a hardware issue10:46
bazhangharesh, just generally drag the tar.gz to the theme manager10:47
blackest_knightnigtv: can you try the hdd in another pc i think the controller may be fubared10:47
Xfactyou guys are guiding me, I am new but not feeling alone in linux...thanks  :)10:47
hareshi know i have installed it can i remove the installion files ?10:47
bazhangharesh, from your desktop? or wherever you downloaded them?10:48
nigtvblackest_knight yea, I'll try that tomorrow. It's a little labor intensive at 4AM :p10:48
nigtvoh well, thanks :D just wish i made more frequent backups lol.10:48
blackest_knightnigtv: seems likely to me, you might be able to work round using a usb to ide converter cable  if it is the ide port10:48

=== BlackJack is now known as Dreaman
nigtvblackest_knight suppose I could get a live cd to boot with the hd hooked up, you think there are any places that would be good to look for a log or something that could tell me why it crashed in the first place?10:50
blackest_knightnigtv: the drive may be ok (it doesnt smell funny does it) but its very worrying that nothing boots (actually you may find the secondary ide controller is ok)10:50
psycho_oreosXfact, don't know and somewhat doubtful10:51
llutzXfact: as usbnet is installed, it should10:51
nigtvnah, its not smelly or loud. It seems to be fine, it passes the little system diagnostic test thing whatever thats worth heh10:51
Xfactus'usbnet' i have to install?10:51
blackest_knightnigtv:  i think its probably hardware failure10:51
llutzXfact: its a kernel-module, installed by default.10:51
nigtvhmm, maybe ill try putting another hd into the broken computer before putting the harddrive into a totally okay computer10:52
nigtvalrighty, bed time, therell be more time to pull my hair out tomorrow. Adios d00dz10:52

jeffjeffdejeffhi all.  need some help with grub please.  I have (had) a dual boot xp ubuntu setup.  xp on one drive and ubuntu on another. after going through some menus after booting from an xp disk (won't bore you with the details as to why) my grub has disappeared and boots straight into xp every time. I'm currently using the live disc atm, and have tried restoring grub as per the instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=22435111:31
Cool_NickSimple question, whats the command to do a long format for ext4 on /dev/sdb1 (It is already formatted the quick way with a program, but I would like a long format to possibly find hidden errors on the new drive)11:31
ziroday!grub | jeffjeffdejeff instructions are here11:32
ubottujeffjeffdejeff instructions are here: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.11:32

llutzCool_Nick: there's no short/long "formatting"11:33
llutzCool_Nick: fsck/badblocks might what you're looking for11:33
Cool_NickIn windows theres teh optoin "Quick format", feels like I had that checked when I formatted with linux a minute ago11:34

llutzCool_Nick: you were talking about ext4, that not a windows fs11:34
Cool_Nickllutz: I was defining what I was talking about with short/long formatting11:35
Cool_Nickbut you are probably correct with doign a badblock search with fsck11:35

airtonixjeffjeffdejeff, makes sense. windows needs to control the mbr to choose the device and partition it loads from, typical operation for installing *anything* in windows is to nuke everything and reboot11:43

Possesionmeh this sucks12:19
jadakrenXfact, as far as i am aware you only need the deb-src if you want to compile the packages your self... so not normally12:20
llutzXfact: deb-src only if you plan to build own packages12:20

=== T|Timo is now known as T|Timo_
deviadanyhow, you need to download your current kernel's sources12:35
deviadand also another thing I can't recall right now, where there are the headers... I guess kernel headers12:35
kulightthere is a ppa with the driivers but the package wont install12:35
deviadA long time ago you needed to download kernel-sources and something like kernel-headers12:35
XfactOpenoffice is batter or Koffice suit (KDE)?12:36
deviadthen you had to run a few dpkg commands to create the deb package out of the nvidia installer12:36
deviadyou had to extract the contents of the installer to do this12:36
deviadthen you just typed those commands which created a module to add to the kernel12:36
deviadthis way whenever you wanted to undo what you did you just had to type apt-get remove name of the package12:37
kulighti know this things but its not relevant to my current problem12:37

jadakrenkulight, why does the offical nvidia page only have 190.53 then ?12:46
