mmvxwiteshark firefox is part of the default ubuntu install. All updates come down via the ubuntu repos01:00
Archanamiyaah right01:00
mkanyicyguiscard, I am sorry if I sounded angry, but I was asking if ever you managed to install ccsm01:00
Archanamiyakinja-sheep: thanks ^_^01:00
witesharkok thanks01:00
spacitymedicHey how do I get rid of the 5 or 6 other OS options on my boot screen? I ahve some 14 bit options and safe mode options... I know it has something to do with deleting kernels... but Im lost.01:01
kinja-sheepArchanamiya: No problem. Don't use TTY1 because it have different runlevel than TTY2-6. ;)01:01
mkanyicyguiscard, as far as I remember you were asking about making a 3D rotating cube01:01
kinja-sheeps/use/copy. ;)01:01
Archanamiyakinja-sheep: what do you mean?01:01
albertoHow can I check if my Ubuntu is 32 or 64 bit?01:01
mkanyicyAbdul, I dont have credit card numbers, I am not a bank, please don't PM me01:02
kinja-sheepArchanamiya: "diff /etc/event.d/tty1.conf /etc/event.d/tty2.conf" will list the differences between two files.01:02
Quasar1048spacitymedic /boot/grub/menu.lst01:02
mmvxalberto you can try uname -a and look for x86_6401:02
Archanamiyakinja-sheep: j01:02

allen369 I have Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) and the ripository went crazy and is not connecting to some of the ripositorys, does any one kno what happend???01:03
albertommvx Do you know why I cannot see alsamixer controls fine, when I initiate it from terminal?01:03
kinja-sheepArchanamiya: I'm going to assume you removed those tty?.conf to reduce a number of processes as to keep things light. :)01:03
Archanamiyakinja-sheep: me? no, i haven't touch 'em01:04
mmvxalberto what is wrong with them?01:04
Abdulis there anyone that can help with some Credit numbers ?01:04
mkanyicyallen369, network problems, or repository servers are down, or something else01:04
ArchanamiyaAbdul1: Wrong channel.01:04
albertommvx I cannot record my guitar01:04
mkanyicy!ot | Abdul01:04
ubottuAbdul: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!01:04
albertommvx I can hear it when I plug it in, but I cannot record anything.01:05
Abdulis there anyone that can help with Credit Numbers ?01:05
mmvxalberto are you using 9.10?01:05
hackulatorSo I just upgraded my Ubuntu to 9.10 and my sound stopped working, any ideas??01:05
mkanyicy!ot | Abdul01:05
xguruI'm using karmic and my webcam works fine with cheese, but with skype it doesn't work.....any ideas?  In the preferences in both cheese and skype they are pointed to the same device01:05
ArchanamiyaThank goodness01:05
allen369k thank you. I happend it will straighten its self out???01:05
albertommvx I used to, but I returned to 9.04 because Karmic was too unstable.01:05
mmvxhackulator have you had a look in the new sound preferences gui?01:06
spacitymedicquasar.. what do I do with that?01:06
hackulatormmvx: yeah it all seems to be set on01:06
airliasdesign_Is anyone here?01:07
Quasar1048spacitymedic: easiest thing is to run `sudo gedit /boot/gru/menu.lst` in the terminal, then delete the kernels you don't need.01:07
airliasdesign_Hey guys01:07
airliasdesign_I'm in sort of a dilemma01:07
Quasar1048thats /boot/grub/menu.lst01:07
airliasdesign_I currently have 2 servers01:07
mmvxalberto there have been some changes with sound in 9.10, possible improvements. hackulator may disagree! If you can hear the amplified sound then you should be able to record it01:07
airliasdesign_and I want to cloud them01:07
guiscardmkanyicy, it's alright bro I don't get hurt so ease. now the ccsm I've installed it how do I get the 3D cube?01:07
mmvxalberto which program are you using to record?01:08
albertommvx Sound Recorder01:08
airliasdesign_Does anyone know about Ubuntu Server?01:08
albertoI'm using Jaunty, though01:08
albertommvx Just testing, before I record with Ardour01:08
mkanyicyguiscard, ALT+F2 then type ccsm01:08
mazda01ne1 know why my nfs mounts no longer auto mount in karmic?01:09
ricerocketHey guys, I can't send files from my phone to the computer using bluetooth. any suggestsions?01:09
mmvxalberto does sound recorder let you choose a mic, and do you see any errors?01:09
mmvxricerocket are you using 9.10?01:09
albertommvx No, it doesn't let me choose a Mic01:09
albertommvx Only Capture01:09
ricerocketmmvx: yeah01:09
airliasdesign_Can my front-end of my cloud also act as a node?01:09
airliasdesign_such as01:09
airliasdesign_I'm running on 1 server01:09
airliasdesign_which isn't enough01:10
airliasdesign_so I ordered another01:10
FloodBot1airliasdesign_: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:10
albertommvx Not even Capture sometimes, when I change System/Preferences/Sound settings01:10
airliasdesign_But the problem with my server is that I have to keep 1 server01:10
albertommvx I'm annoyed01:10
Hodappgah... 3-second ping time to another box on the LAN is unacceptable01:10
mmvxalberto sound recorder is quite basic, it may be worth trying audacity01:10
airliasdesign_Like, I could take the website down for a day, but that would be extremist, I'm looking for the least downtime01:11
albertommvx Audacity does the same01:11
albertommvx Not to record01:11
mmvxalberto and no errors?01:11
=== Guest63800 is now known as faileas
faileas'm setting up a minimalistic ubuntu based system with openbox as a window manager. Unlike the more full functioned window managers, there's no single click shutdown option. While i can shutdown using cli - this needs me to use sudo, and well, this isn't what i want. Is there any way to make the halt or poweroff commands work for any user, without the need for a password?01:11
albertommvx No01:11
albertommvx No errors01:11
albertommvx I can hear the guitar, but I cannot play it back.01:12
airliasdesign_someone help me please :P01:12
Quasar1048Can someone help me to figure out why g15tools gives me errors? Here's an error it gives me a lot: E: g15daemon: subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1 E: g15macro: dependency problems - leaving unconfigured. What else does it need besides libusb and libg15? Anyone know?01:12
mmvxricerocket can you add the phone and browse folders ok?01:12
albertommvx Because it doesn't pick the sound up.01:12
ricerocketI can pair the computer and phone if that's what you're asking01:12
MikeJBDoes Ubuntu have any recommended minimum hard disk size below which an installation is impractical?01:12
Quasar1048I would love to have macro keys working, lol.01:13
guiscardmkanyicy, thank you ;)01:13
lstarnesMikeJB: I would say that anything under 4 GB is highly impractical01:13
mkanyicyguiscard, no prob01:13
MrPocketsohhi. does Transmission need any config out-of-box?01:13
hackulatorI just upgraded my Ubuntu to 9.10 and my sound stopped working, checked the Sound preferences and nothing is muted or at zero volume.01:13
mmvxalberto does the sound look like it's playing?01:13
faileasMikeJB: well, smallest ubuntu install with a gui i've seen is ~2gb01:13
lstarnesMikeJB: I think it can work with as little as 2GB though, but that's just with the default packages and nothing extra01:13
mmvxalberto just no noise?01:13
mmvxricerocket can you browse files on the phone?01:14
ricerocketno, I don't know how to do that01:14
albertommvx No, it doesn't record anything01:14
MikeJBIs 5 GB decent?01:14
ricerocketall i can find is bluetooth preferences in preferences01:14
mkanyicyMikeJB, why do you want to know that?01:14
lstarnesMikeJB: you'll probably still want more than that01:14
lstarnesMikeJB: that might be enough if you don't keep any large files01:15
airliasdesign_this is useless01:15
albertommvx It doesn't draw waveform when I play.01:15
faileasMikeJB: for most things, that would do. some specific info about the setup you want will help01:15
mmvxricerocket there is a bluetooth icon in the task bar with a right click menu01:15
* faileas runs a barebones install - openbox, swiftfox, lostirc, and an IM client no one's heard of, and its slightly over a gig01:15
albertommvx Could you please connect to my computer remotely?01:15
MikeJBfaileas: I want to use Ubuntu as a guest OS in virtualization.01:15
faileasMikeJB: need a gui?01:16
mkanyicyMikeJB, nowadays, 15GB is adequate01:16
mmvxalberto I don't think that would help, aside from being a security risk01:16
albertommvx I trust you.01:16
eltumecan someone link me to a site with instructions on how to use unetbooting to boot an iso without a physical media ???01:16
faileasand what VM software?01:16
mmvxalberto honestly it won't help01:17
ricerockethow do i add that to the panel, i use the awn systray for mine, and i don't see a bluetooth icon mmvx01:17
lstarnesMikeJB: I generally allocate 8GB for virtual disks01:17
MikeJBah, okay.01:17
faileasMikeJB: personally? start with the cli only install, then install just what you need. and unless you absolutely need it, go for something like openbox or icevm to save space01:17
ricerocketmmvx, yeah, there's no icon01:18
mmvxalberto if you can hear the guitar, then selecting the correct channel for mic in sound preferences and sound recorder should work. If not I suspect there is a problem with pulseaudio which may be resolved by upgrading to 9.1001:18
faileasMikeJB: if you were using a vmware or kvm base, jce would be what i'd use. its a virtualsation specific build of ubuntu. donno how it is with qemu tho01:19
mmvxricerocket in System > Preferences there is a bluetooth entry01:19
=== MrPocketz is now known as MrPockets
mazda01ne1 know why my nfs mounts no longer auto mount in karmic?01:19
ricerocketyeah, that's just preferences. how do i actually browse the files on the phone01:19
hackulatorI just upgraded my Ubuntu to 9.10 and my sound stopped working, checked the Sound preferences and nothing is muted or at zero volume.01:19
MikeJBfaileas: well, virtualization support isn't 100% adequate on my laptop because virtualization is something that has started to be hyped relatively recently.01:20
mmvxricerocket in the preferences you can choose to show the icon...01:20
airliasdesign_does anyone here know about Ubuntu Server01:20
mazda01hackulator, you upgraded to lucid or you're now at karmic?01:20
hackulatormazdo01 karmic01:20
mkanyicyairliasdesign_, ask a question01:20
mazda01airliasdesign_, what about it?01:20
jijutmguys any tips on upgrading live 8.04 server to 9.1001:20
MikeJBI do want to learn it at least so I can use virtualization extensively on my newer laptop. If I already virtualize I'll know what exactly my current computer is lacking and what to look for in my next.01:20
ricerocketok i tick the box and it still doesn't come up01:20
mazda01hackulator, is pulseaudio running?  sudo service pulseaudio restart01:20
airliasdesign_@mazda01 I'm trying to determine how to set up my cloud01:20
adamonline45So I have a dedicated /boot partition, but don't know where to find it.  I'm in initramfs, and would like to change a grub option.  Can anyone help me mount my /boot?01:21
mazda01airliasdesign_, you mean ubuntu one/01:21
mmvxricerocket do you have a notification area in a panel somewhere?01:21
faileasMikeJB: er.. you don't need VT for virtualisation01:21
mkanyicyjijutm, go to 8.10 then to 9.04 then to 9.1001:21
ricerocketyes, it's not coming up01:21
=== bastidrazor is now known as bastid_raZor
airliasdesign_@mazda01: I currently have 1 server running, and just ordered another01:21
faileasand you WILL get better performance off vmware server or player, or virtualbox, than qemu01:21
airliasdesign_the other server has a processor that is much better01:21
mkanyicyjijutm, if you wait a few months you could upgrade from 8.04 directly to 10.04!01:22
mmvxricerocket is your bluetooth device showing in System > Preferences > Bluetooth01:22
Hodappfaileas: Really? Even QEMU with KVM?01:22
airliasdesign_but I'm stuck, can I also use my server as a frontend AND a node?01:22
hackulatormazda01: "Pulseaudio configured for per-user sessions", sounds still doesn't work01:22
Hodappfaileas: I've not had any CPUs with which to test this, so I was always curious.01:22
airliasdesign_in other words, I need the websites on the servers to stay up01:22
faileasHodapp: isn't kvm an app on its own?01:22
airliasdesign_so I'll point the DNS at my server01:22
jijutm@mkanyicy thanks.. actually I wanted to use a specific function of the swftools which comes with 9.1001:22
airliasdesign_(front end)01:22
lstarnesfaileas: kvm is a partly-modified QEMU01:22
lstarnesfaileas: the frontend is almost exactly the same01:22
Hodapplstarnes: KVM is not QEMU01:23
lstarnesHodapp: I know that01:23
jijutm@mkanyicy the swftools in 8.04 fails on several pdfs created using Mac Illustrator01:23
faileasI might be talking out of my rear end, but the problem with qemu is, it virtualises the whole system- the kqemu patch allows some passthrough of commands and improves performance01:23
Hodapplstarnes: That means it is not partly-modified QEMU.01:23
jijutm@mkanyicy where as it works fine on the 9.10 version01:23
Hodappfaileas: Have you done any tests though on qemu-kvm?01:23
mazda01airliasdesign_, did you check this out? it depends whether you want public or private cloud. http://www.ubuntu.com/cloud  i don't have experience but i know how to google01:23
lstarnesHodapp: it is based on qemu01:23
mkanyicyjijutm, 9.10 is not LTS though01:23
lstarnesHodapp: when did I say that it IS qemu?01:24
jijutmyea i know..01:24
Hodapplstarnes: It is not based on QEMU.01:24
lstarnesHodapp: it is01:24
Hodapplstarnes: No, it's not.01:24
faileasVMware and virtualbox (with his a qemu fork i believe) do passthrough. in addition, both would let you have resizable disks01:24
mkanyicyjijutm, and besides, it takes longer to upgrade to it since there are no short cuts01:24
jijutm@mkanyicy do i edit the sources.list and do upgarde01:24
lstarnesHodapp: I know for a fact that it is01:24
faileasHodapp: the windows version has a kernel hook - i tried that, and well, vmware server and virtualbox both blew it out of the water01:24
lstarnesHodapp: unless you can prove otherwise01:24
Hodapplstarnes: That's too bad, because you're completely wrong.01:24
faileasHodapp: as for linux, no01:24
mazda01hackulator, what sound card? lspci01:24
mkanyicyjijutm, you might encounter other errors somewhere in the upgrade chain01:24
Hodapplstarnes: KVM is KVM. It's part of the kernel.01:24
lstarnesHodapp: let's continue this in #ubuntu-offtopic.  This is getting outside of support01:25
Hodapplstarnes: There's nothing to discuss; you're just wrong.01:25
mkanyicyjijutm, oh, you have decided do go ahead?01:25
jijutm@mkanyicy will try the gimmick on a vm in our colocated server and see01:25
djtoastIve been reading all day on trying to configure 3 monitors on 2 vid cards. it seemed possible on 8.10 and 9.04 but not on 9.10 anywone doing this 3monitors 2 cards and not in seperate X windows ?01:25
faileasin MikeJB's case, i think if he's worried about space, a dynamically resizable disk might work, and he seems unaware VT isn't a prerequisite for 90% of tasks ;p01:25
Hodappfaileas: I am curious about what its performance is like when KVM is present, but I haven't tried it.01:25
Hodappfaileas: But mostly I use VirtualBox.01:25
lstarnesHodapp: I said move it to -offtopic01:25
faileasHodapp: neither have i.01:26
ricerocketmmvx: send me a private message if you figure something out, i have to go away for 15mins01:26
hackulatormazda01 Creative Labs SB Audigy01:26
Hodapplstarnes: There is nothing further to discuss. You're wrong; get over it.01:26
jijutm@mkanyicy thanks a lot01:26
lstarnesHodapp: I will find a link01:26
mkanyicyjijutm, backup your sources.list and thereafter replace hardy with intrepid on it01:27
mazda01hackulator, have you checked this out?  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=130245701:27
mkanyicyjijutm, try doing a dist-upgrade01:27
lstarnesHodapp: the usermode components (NOT the kernelmode components) appear to be at least partly based on QEMU01:27
faileaslstarnes: could be simply cause its a well know interface01:27

matt\I can't upgrade my 8.3 postgres cluster to 8.4 following the Karmic upgrade.  I followed the instructions that APT mentioned during the upgrade, but now I don't see anything in pg_lsclusters.01:28
demetrio81ctqualcuno siciliano01:28
matt\The message said that 8.4 would install a new main cluster, and to upgrade the 8.3 one it was necessary to drop the 8.4 main, which I did.01:29
matt\Now there are no clusters.01:29
hackulatormazda01 no I will check it out thanks, also just discovered all my videos seem to have to color totally out of wack on them :-/01:29
lstarnesHodapp: the front page for the KVM project (http://linux-kvm.org) clearly references the fact that it depends on a modified version of QEMU01:30
Hodapplstarnes: depends on != is01:30
ring0can i set the hold flag for a package with an apt command? i know i can do so via aptitude or synaptic.01:30
spacitymedicOk i typed in sudo gedit /boot/gru/menu.lst and nothing is in the window that popped up...01:31
lstarnesHodapp: I never said that KVM was QEMU (or vice versa)01:31
spacitymedichow do I delete the other unneeded OS options on my boot screen??01:31
lstarnesHodapp: I just said that KVM was partly based on QEMU01:31
mkanyicyspacitymedic, grub2 does not use menu.lst01:31
spacitymedichuh? oh well that was what an user here told me to type in...01:32
jijutm@mkanyicy yea.. got https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes01:32
jijutmand started with it01:32
spacitymedic then how do I edit the menu?01:32
mkanyicyspacitymedic, furthermore when running gui apps rather use gksudo instead of sudo01:32
spacitymedicOk... so gksudo .. what?01:32
trismspacitymedic: if you want to remove old kernels from the list, uninstall the linux-image packages for them01:33
spacitymedicOk... how do I do that? sorry I've been using linux for about 5 days now... totally new to it all.01:33
helper`hey need to ask! what command i can paste it will list for me the / in a hirerchy way! thx01:33
Hodapplstarnes: Their website directly states that KVM itself consists of a kernel module; this kernel module is not based on QEMU at all.01:33
Hodapphelper`: find /01:33
lstarnesHodapp: I am aware of that01:33
jijutm@mkanyicy the 8.04 to 8.10 downloads just completed.. and it is applying them01:33
lstarnesHodapp: ok, you know what01:33
helper`Hodapp thx01:34
lstarnesHodapp: I apologize01:34
mkanyicyspacitymedic, then you rather don't play with grub01:34
theDomhi can someone help me with a nvidia driver problem?01:34
lstarnesHodapp: I was wrong01:34
Hodapplstarnes: Thanks.01:34
mkanyicyjijutm, that's quick01:34
spacitymedicOk.. so... instead of helping me... youre just telling me to not even bother sinceI dont already know?01:34
spacitymedic Not very helpful now, are you?01:34
jijutm@mkanyicy I am hosting on http://www.pacificrack.com01:34
Hodappbah. this is why I should stay off of IRC.01:34
guiscardhow do I downgrade my ubuntu to 0.1 pre-alpha version?01:35
lstarnesHodapp: what I meant to say is that KVM itself is NOT based on QEMU01:35
jijutm@mkanyicy and bandwidth for upgrades they dont charge, since it goes through the private lan01:35
lstarnesHodapp: but that the userspace client for KVM was based on it or reused components form it01:35
trismspacitymedic: dpkg -l linux-image* will list your kernels, you can uninstall them with sudo apt-get remove package_name; just make sure you don't remove your current kernel, or you won't have anything to boot (uname -a lists your current kernel)01:35
Hodapplstarnes: I see.01:35
soreauspacitymedic: Which unneeded boot options are you referring to?01:36
trismspacitymedic: if you want to remove memtest86+ you can either uninstall it or sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/20_memtest86+; sudo update-grub;01:36
lstarnesHodapp: I have now come to the realization that that program itself is not part of KVM and is instead just a userspace interface for the kernel subsystem01:36
spacitymedicOk, i have two linux OS's on here.. how do I know the difference? Can I rename them? cause on the menuy they are both titled Ubuntu 9.1. And I have xubuntu and kubuntu01:36
init2winit77Need help figuring out why my pictures folder keeps freezing up and I have to "force quit"  also some files that have been saved in other folders are not there and don't show up in a search,  can any one help?01:36
spacitymedicthe ones I want to delete are the 14 bit and 14 bit safe mode  and recovery mode ones01:36
soreauspacitymedic: Did you install 9.10 fresh, meaning you would have grub2 installed?01:37
mmvxHodapp I just remembered that I set power management to off in rc.local for ath9k too01:37
trismspacitymedic: it is not straightforward to edit them individually in grub2, it is probably best not to mess with it if you want to do anything more complicated than the previous two things I mentioned01:37
Hodappmmvx: hmm, perhaps that is my issue.01:37
Hodappmmvx: is this glaringly obvious in rc.local?01:37
spacitymedicUhm... yes? I had windows, I installed xubuntu. then I sat up a partition and installed kubuntu.01:37
mmvxI just added  line: "iwconfig wlan0 power off" above exit 001:38
fellowworkerI've got a question about ubuntu01:38
soreauspacitymedic: Well it's not a good idea to remove all the recovery mode entries and there are ways to change the label it displays but I'm not sure with grub2. Consider this:01:38
soreau! grub2 | spacitymedic01:38
ubottuspacitymedic: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager in Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub201:38
Hodappmmvx: and that's it? So I could test this trivially without even  bothering with rc.local?01:39
fellowworkeri bricked my ubuntu01:39
mkanyicyfellowworker, is that a question?01:39
fellowworkerI havent used ircii before01:39
mmvxHodapp absolutely, you can check to see if power management is on just using iwconfig wlan001:39
spacitymedicthanks... but im not sure what Im looking for.01:39
Hodappmmvx: well, right now it's using ndiswrapper so I can't :P01:39
mkanyicyfellowworker, general rule is that go straight to the point01:40
fellowworkerI bricked ubuntu by updating the linux kernel.  Then it wouldnt load properly in grub (i got dropped to grub.sh)01:40
mmvxHodapp ok, good point well made!01:40
fellowworkerso, i followed a guide on ubuntuforums to fix it.. but ended up getting dropped to busybox or another shell with the prompt (initramfs)01:40
fellowworkerim worried i made a typo and destroyed everything01:40
trismspacitymedic: the kernels are automatically probed by grub2, if you want to edit them individually you will either need to know a bit of bash and edit the prober or manually edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg, in which case you will need to manually edit it again every kernel/grub update01:40
theDomcan someone remind me the command in ubuntu for restoring a file to the backed up file?01:41
cyberjorgehi, what should I set in proftpd.conf to make sure all anonymous user can access my /home/myfolder?01:41
guiscardi need to downgrade my ubuntu because i have almost no space with this old ide hdd01:41
arandfellowworker: which guide? did you use an upgraded or fresh-installed karmic?01:41
fellowworkerer, 9.10 karmic01:42
mkanyicyguiscard, just remove unnecessary apps01:42
soreautheDom: That's a subjective question. It depends on where the file is backed up to, what it's called and what file you want to restore01:42
fellowworkeri just did it foolishly through the updates thing on the tray01:42
fellowworkernot a fresh install01:42
mkanyicyguiscard, and do an apt-get clean01:42
helper`how i can copy current line using vi ? thx01:42
trismhelper`: to the vim buffer you can use yy01:42
fellowworkerand the guide i used was at "http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1339203" post #1001:42

cl0vvnHello, I am running 9.04 with the 2.6.28-17 kernel, and I want to update to 2.6.31; I can't find it on synaptic, can anyone help me with this?01:52
ZykoticK9Alex_2_3, you'd need to a a script or shutdown to the sudoers file01:52
ravigehlotvictor_: just download the dictionary extension right from OpenOffice Writer01:52
mmvxAlex_2_3 you could sudo su and set at as root01:52
ravigehlotcl0vvn: You have to enter the PPA for the newer kernel or select all options in your SOURCES.01:52
trismspacitymedic: as for the other entries, you can disable the os_prober and copy them to /etc/grub.d/40_custom and set any options you want (then run sudo update-grub;)01:53
ravigehlotcl0vvn: Just go to Administrator -> Sources and select all boxes. It will download the latest Kernel that it known to work in your Ubuntu.01:53
ravigehlotcl0vvn: For the latest version of the kernel. Download it from www.kernel.org and compile it manually.01:53

cl0vvnI'm getting kernel panics when I try to boot up01:55
victor__ravigehlot, i haven't found it ... that's what i'm asking :P01:55
trismspacitymedic: you could do the same with the ubuntu kernel entries if you really wanted, it would it be a pain to add new kernels manually every update (for me anyway)01:55
ravigehlotcl0vvn: Are you on an older system?01:55
spacitymedicyeah... man I wish I could take a screenshot of my boot screen01:55

ravigehlotvictor___: It's there.01:56
cl0vvnHm, don't think so01:56

DrManhattanrunning ubuntu on a super nintendo02:01
spacitymedic tell me what to type in.02:01
spacitymedic Slowly... Im not very good at computers as  it is.02:02
trismspacitymedic: as an example, to uninstall the oldest karmic kernel would be: sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.31-14-generic;02:02
HFSPLUSHow sexy my f40?02:02
spacitymediccan I type that in?02:02
DrManhattanyeah, if you don't know what version of the OS you are running, you don't really have any business working in linux.02:03
trismspacitymedic: dpkg -l linux-image* will list them all, the important thing is not to uninstall your current kernel02:03
darkspacitymedic, in order to see the kernels installed, type dpkg -l 'linux-image-*'02:03
c0retopo_: there is in ubuntu wiki how to troubleshoot02:03
ricerockethey guys, i can't seem to get my bluetooth to connect to my phone (which is different than pairing)02:03
trismspacitymedic: which is either 2.6.31-16 or -17 depending on if you updated recently or not02:03
=== Quasar1048 is now known as Guest61473
darkspacitymedic, in order to remove one, say, version 2.6.31-14-gen (the only one installed here), the command is sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.31-14-gen02:03
faileasDrManhattan: eh, depends. I think i had a client who runs UNR now. i pretty much installed it, and told her 'if there's any issues, call me'. Haven't gotten any tech support calls yet ;p02:03

ZykoticK9Don_Miguel, i think 32bit Ubuntu "should" be able to see up to 3.2GB memory (not sure though) -- AMD64 will also work for Intel 64bit CPUs as well.02:07
guiscarddark man so if it doesnt bother you i have some questions concerning the kernel upgrade because i want to fine-tune it with my system02:07
faileasZykoticK9: in theory it should see up to 4 actually. the 3.2 gb is a windows thing02:07
jolarenWhy do people install let's say ubuntu server 8.04 instead of 9.04 or 9.10?02:07
darkguiscard, then ask :)02:08
faileasjolaren: maybe they want an LTS?02:08
spacitymedicOk Dark, I typed in that  thing to show me what I have installed...02:08
jolarenfaileas; Oh, right02:08
spacitymedic it popped some stuff up...02:08
spacitymedicAAAnd now I'm not sure which ones to delete...02:08
darkspacitymedic, may i give you some advice? don't uninstall any kernel02:08
c0reusing synaptic will better02:08
faileasspacitymedic: unless you're REALLY short of space, don't bother uninstalling it02:08
Don_MiguelZykoticK9, faileas,  so it will not mess with anything but my time TRYING to use the AMD64 iso ?02:09
spacitymedicGot it... but Im not sure what to select when Im booting up.02:09
faileasDon_Miguel: it will, at worst, fail.02:09
guiscarddark thanks, so first question: how do I begin with from source? I'm going to download it from kernel.org and compile myself on this ubuntu 9.1002:09
trismspacitymedic: the first ubuntu entry will be the newest, which is what you want02:09
darkspacitymedic, there is no need. you don't waste any space really. (you are "wasting" 85mb in space because the system installs error messages in russian and hebrew. what is the problem in keeping a 2mb, 3mb kernel? @.@)02:09
darkguiscard, if you can at all, don't. just apt-cache search kernel source (maybe it will show all sources available to download via apt-get)02:10
ZykoticK9Don_Miguel, does "lscpu" show x86_64 for architecture?02:10
faileasguiscard: there's a thread on how to do it in the forums. or you can use kernelcheck... if you totally have to02:10
darkguiscard, hmm. apt-cache search kernel source isn't the right way to search it. wait02:10
spacitymedicthe problem is tha they are all named the same.02:11
spacitymedic and there are several of them.02:11
darkguiscard, apt-cache search linux-source. in fact, sudo apt-get install linux-source will install the source for the lastest kernel02:11
darkspacitymedic, hmmmm... really? i don't think so.... @.@02:11
darkspacitymedic, how you installed them?02:11

cl0vvnAlso, older versions of the kernel seem to work just fine02:13

Don_MiguelZykoticK9, what am I missing there ...?02:14
ZykoticK9Don_Miguel, perhaps lscpu is only on 9.10 - what version you using?02:14
Don_MiguelZykoticK9, 9.0402:15

Cubeyanyone know how to turn off the on-screen volume meter that comes up when you use keyboard volume controls?02:26
darkguiscard, how you were back?:)02:26
guiscarddark i tried f702:26
jgcampbell300hi, what is the easiest most powerfull way to run windows apps on ubuntu, mostly games02:27
cl0vvnc0re: I'm looking at fstab02:27
cl0vvnwhat should I be looking for?02:27
darkguiscard, yes :) you can also have an f8 for another graphical interface, entirely detached for you one02:27
ZykoticK9jgcampbell300, check out "wine"02:27
Cubeyjgcampbell300: if you want free, wine.02:27
Awesome3000jgcampbell300 don't run linux games instead02:27
c0recl0vvn: look for mount destination and other options02:27
kf__i have installd the debian but it isn't installed the wireless network02:27
kinja-sheepjgcampbell300: If you need to run Windows applications, dual-boot.02:27
jgcampbell300kk wine it is ... some games are not made for linux02:27
darkguiscard, also,  you chould have more than 6 consoles, if you configure the kernel. or less.02:28
Picikf__: Then ask in #debian02:28
Yomansmiley, but smbfs can still do that no?02:28
c0recl0vvn: here is the link https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab02:28
Cubeyjgcampbell300: better off with a dual boot system if you want to play games. ubuntu makes it very easy to do this02:28
cl0vvnoh ok02:28
smileyYoman: can do what?02:28
jgcampbell300lol i am duel booting ... i hate windows and want to learn as much as i can about linux to slay the MS Beast :)02:28
kf__and it didn't install my network-manager!02:28
Yomansmiley, mount public shares outside of lan02:28
toroim using geforce 9400m g with nvidia drivers on my laptop. current max resolution is 1366x768. would it be possible to increase this?02:29
smileykf__: edit /etc/network/interfaces02:29
Picikf__: We do not support debian here. You need to ask in #debian02:29
smileyYoman: hmm.. i feel that smbfs won't work outside of your lan02:29
darkguiscard, in fact, if you are in the level of recompiling the kernel, you can change pretty much everything, because everything else is easier to compile than the kernel. but, you will have to follow a tutorial on how you might load the your sound card module into the kernel (if this is your problem at all - it is?)02:29
Cubeyjgcampbell300: go check the wine appdb, most wont run well. there is a commercially available piece of software that helps runs windows games better.. the name escapes me though... cadgera? or something like that..02:29
kf__yesteday i ask in debian for ubuntu02:29
Cubeyhmm..so, know one knows how to disable the on-screen volume meter that pops up?02:30
jgcampbell300ok thanks much02:30
kf__today i ask debian 's questions in #ubuntu02:30
guiscarddark yes it's a problem with the sound card02:30
kf__but now i still in ubuntu 9.1002:30
Awesome3000can i delete my Xorg.conf to reset it02:30
airliasdesignDoes anyone here know Ubuntu Server Clouding02:30
darkguiscard, but you have to mess with the kernel? are you sure?02:30
darkguiscard, maybe you should try some lspcis, modprobes, and the like, first (unless you are sure)02:30
ZykoticK9Awesome3000, better to move then delete "sudo mv xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup" sorta thing02:31
airliasdesignDoes anyone here actually run a Ubuntu cloud?02:31
Awesome3000thanks will try02:31
darkairliasdesign, are you talking about ubuntu one?02:31
airliasdesigndark: no02:31
guiscarddark  i think so because with some games the audio cranks then fades02:31
airliasdesignI'm talking about the clouding of multiple servers02:31
airliasdesignscaling the power02:31
Piciairliasdesign: #ubuntu-server would be a better place to ask, but its not nearly as active as this channel.02:32
darkguiscard, and how you hope to fix it recompiling the kernel?02:32
kf__i even think that other countries debian is more popular02:32
darkguiscard, the odds is that the problem lies somewhere else. (but recompiling it is fun, and it makes you an excellent opportunity to install the -ck patch, that might give you better gaming performance)02:32
airliasdesignLOL I don't think anyone is in Ubuntu-Server02:32
Hilikuswhat happens to the metadata if i rsync files to a remote server and that server doesnt have the same users??02:32

mattgyverAnyone have any problems with the adobe update on 9.04, just wondering if its worth updating cuz the last update broke it ;x02:36
UberTacojgcampbell300: honestly, I've had similar issues with Firefox. My solution was just to switch to chromium02:36
darkguiscard, it's pulseaudio.02:36
UberTacobut your mileage may vary02:37
darkguiscard, I had audio problems with.... zsnes. in a nvidia card.02:37
jgcampbell300hmm i could give that a try02:37

[uNF]hello, I installed ubuntu, I was wondering how I could get my webcam working... I'm new to linux and have no idea what would be like "device manager" for linux...02:37

Awesome3000cl0vvn in the settings for update manager there is an option to show full updates or long release or none check that02:38
mattgyverjgcampbell300, are you using firebug, that killed it for me in firefox02:38

ZykoticK9guiscard, i hope and pray that 10.04 will be an improvement regarding audio...  other then that i really don't know what to do -- we are all stuck with Pulse, as the developers/Gnome wants it that way...02:41

bleepbloopah okay haha02:42
jschalli like pulse but it has too many bugs to be ready for adoption. that's the problem with open source, though. if people don't USE the half-broken software, devs assume there's no demand for it and stop developing it. If there's lots of people using and complaining about it, then they try to fix the bugs.02:42

jschallCubey: what was your question?02:51
bcoolnope, still not there.02:51
darkYeah! #winehq is a very nice channel to talk about running games with wine. but I think that, even if wine isn't officially supported by canonical, it's community-supported, and its support could be held here02:51
CubeyI had two actually. the latest was if anyone knows how to disable the drum sound in 9.10 at the login screen. I have checked everything... sound, login screen...02:51

Loshapaissad: there is always overhead in these things: headers, checksums, retransmissions due to errors/dropouts etc. Also, the 'rated' speeds are a bit like car mileage numbers: somewhat optimistic numbers based on ideal conditions which never happen outside the laboratory....03:00

ScuniziCan I just copy the PPD file?  Explaination: CUPS has drivers for Brother Printer (some MFC versions) but also seems to have the brscan3 stuff installed.. can I just move the ppd file to the right directory and have it available for setup?03:00
darkduffman, what about pasting me the partition table? through paste.ubuntu.com03:00
iflemaduffman: you up in a live cd now?03:01
darkguiscard, :( but i am saying that to confirm my theory that pulseaudio is guilty03:01
custosGreat. Im having problems with my grafik card. Nvidia. I've installed PlayOnLinux along with steam and Killing Floor. I cant manage to edit my settings so the frequency go higher then my screen can manage. It says something like "81. hz/ 65 hz".03:01
duffmanno if I hit esc during the ubuntu booting logo i get this shel03:01

darkguiscard, I am the promotor here. He is always guilty03:01
duffmani couldn't really paste from it, i could email you a mediocre cell phone pic.03:01

darkduffman, Hmmm. yeah, hehehe, sorry. Don't. Tell me which partitions you have03:02
guiscarddark lmao yeah but I believe you are spot on03:02
duffmanshould be the norm 3 partitions03:02
duffmanits one ide drive03:02
duffmanno fdisk on this cmd prompt03:03
oistopthatcustos what driver u using03:03
darkduffman, if it says that a partition don't exist *by uuid*, it either a) was misconfigured somehow, b) had a bad damage in the partition that also happened to damage its uuid03:03
iflemaduffman: fsck03:03
duffmannot found03:03
oistopthatand what vid card is this exactly03:03
paissadLosha, btw, i thought that the lan had nothing to do with the wan ... because when i use rsync or scp  .... my bandwith for internet is strongly reduced ... almost over ... that means that rsync/scp uses my bandwith03:03

darkduffman, please :) any sd*?03:06
duffmansd* returned about 6 entries though03:06
guiscarddark i think it means you are right about what's causing the problem03:06
Loshapaissad: depends on your hardware. Regular ethernet is rated at what, 10 mb/s ? Which in practice means you'll probably get about 3mb/s out of it after overhead...03:06

darkduffman, o.o close cfdisk and do sudo fsck /dev/sda103:19
darkduffman, tell me if anything abnormal exists03:19
Loshabcool: the fact that there isn't means your dvd wasn't seen by the kernel during bootup. Any ideas why not? Did you say the exact same setup worked on 9.04 ?03:19
osirisx11bcool: what drivers are you using?03:19

Awesome3000Viss  sudo domainjoin-cli join example.local Administrator 03:33
Awesome3000Replace example.local with your domain name, and Administrator with the appropriate user name03:33
VissDaZ_: so I'd like to reinstall the package, and have it ask me for the host again, except I cant for the life of me get it to do that.03:33
Scunizibastid_raZor: so .. sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture <package name> ??03:33
duffmaninitrd.img.old and regf03:33
VissAwesome3000: yeah, to do that I need to have specified my active directory host03:33
osirisx11is using envy a good idea for getting my nvidia binary?03:33
VissAwesome3000: which is my problem. I didnt specify the host during installation03:33
osirisx11the latest and greatest beta03:33
LoshaViss: try apt-get purge instead of remove. purge is supposed to remove all config as well as just the application.03:33
macoViss: sudo dpkg-reconfigure likewise-open ??03:33
VissAwesome3000: so every time I do that, it fails.03:33
Scuniziosirisx11: no03:33
osirisx11Scunizi: thanks.how should i?03:33
Vissmaco: it doesn't give me the dialog box to put in the AD host if I do that.03:33
Awesome3000Viss Sorry03:33

jsikeswireless recognizes networks, but wont connect. ubuntu9.1, belkin F5D8053. checked all the forums and tried all the fixes. no luck. any thoughts? (new user)03:33
macoViss: config files arent removed when you "apt-get remove" but they are when you "apt-get purge"03:33
DaughainKeep forgetting the .org. :P03:33
VissLosha: I tried that too, still no love.03:34
macoViss: so purge it then install it?03:34
Scuniziosirisx11: nvidia has docs on that03:34
darkduffman, ok. seems fine!03:34
VissI've done that, three times now03:34
Visswith no luck03:34
ivan_Daughain, is that for movies or for cd in general, my computer wont even say there is a disc in the tray03:34
Vissive even used dpkg to purge it and reinstall it03:34
Vissthe reinstall doesn't give me the host dialog box03:34
darkduffman, now maybe it's the time to actually see the uuid of the partition03:34
LoshaViss: is it a single executable do you know?03:34
bastid_raZorScunizi: yes03:34
darkand compare with the uuid in /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst03:34
VissLosha: I'm not certain, today is my first day working with it03:34

darkduffman, i am searching for the command .-.03:35
darkmaybe someone here knwos03:35
duffmanok take your time03:35
LoshaViss: the reason I ask is because I've occasionally had good luck running executables under strace to see *exactly* which files they look at. It's kind of advanced though...03:36
squidlyhello I just updated to 9.10 and now I am unable to mount my drives I keep getting libblk error03:36

macobcool: the sampling pool in a channel that's for support is a bit skewed ;)03:37
ivan_Daughain, thanks ill check it out03:37

Loshabcool: then no reason you shouldn't stick to 9.04....03:38
Cubeystill playing that damn sound03:38
LegendarioIs it possible?03:38
darkduffman, it is, maybe, dumpe2fs. first open the file /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst with an editor and copy the uuid of the error msg you saw03:38
bcoolthe only problems I have with 9.04 is it doesn't like my onboard soundcard and it doesn't like dual monitors.03:38
Daughainbcool:  I sweitched to 9.10 because I found .04 to have too many issues. =)03:38
darkduffman, you could probably do that with grep uuid /mnt/bot/grub/menu.lst , also03:38
bcool9.10 fixed both of those problems.03:38
SmokexzHello, Ubuntu 9.10 won't read my drivers, I was using Vista 32-bit before I installed it, I am dual-booting. I want it to read my graphics card and wireless LAN.03:38

ivan_Daughain, its not a movie dvd its data, and the system wont even tell me there is a dvd inside03:44
Loshabcool: well, it's a long shot. Just trying to be thorough and eliminate variables. But e,g. a hardware failure on the port. Or more likely, your dvd drive has died. All those high precision moving parts are prone to failure,,,,03:44
bcoolagian, my boot cd works03:45
waltercoolsomeone should recommend me a good virtualization app without special hardware? Because kqemu doesnt work on Ubuntu and Virtualbox is too... monopolistic03:45

duffmangive me time03:45
bastid_raZorL3dPlatedLinux: you do realize you need to have X stopped before installing those drivers.03:46
Daughainivan_:  Prolly need to get someone who knows more than me then. I thought you were trying to watch a movie, sorry.03:46
darkMaletor, @.@ then i don't know. maybe it shows only what is in /etc/fstab03:46
Maletorand my /dev/sdb1 which i want to NOT show on the desktop is actually visible there with no way of getting it off03:46
darkMaletor, or only what have 'users' as option there03:46
bcoolI would have cried if my drive had stopped working.03:46
darkduffman, why?03:46
Loshabcool: ok, I give in, then. It isn't a failure mode I've seen for 9.10 reported on this channel, which is usually where we hear about os problems....03:46
darkduffman, can you mount the pen drive?03:46
ivan_Daughain; no worrys ill ask again thank you03:46

darkMaletor, yes me too :)03:50
ivan_c0re: no it says it doesnt exist03:50
bastid_raZorMaletor: technically, anything mounted in /media is displayed on the desktop. you could symlink your drive to a directory in media to get it there.03:51
ivan_c0re, i can see easily the documents in windows...03:51
darkMaletor, maybe it's just that i didn't found the perfect file manager in my own standards03:51
c0rej4ke: i think it will03:51
Hilikussometimes after so time of playing stuff, pulseaudio stops working and only crackling noise comes out. at that point playback accelerates and the timebar goes really fast in amarok03:52

theshadowPlease tell me someone has figured out how to remove pdvdlinux from the Dell XPS 1340's03:58
kapaceLosha, ok, so do i have to burn to another disk from another brand?03:58
ctmjr!mint | [deXter]03:59
ubottu[deXter]: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), crunchbang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #remote-exploit)03:59
Loshakapace: I would try that. Or perhaps reburn the same brand at a slower speed to get a better quality burn....03:59
FernandoFLosha there is an application missing on my startup, after i did disable it accidentally. this provokes the message "authentication is required" when i try to access my data hard disks, instead of a window to put authentication in. Do you know which application i shd put in the window "add applications on startup" in order to solve my problem?03:59
kapaceLosha, speed matters?03:59
[deXter]ctmjr: Okay forget I said m***, just assume it's Ubuntu :)03:59

macowaltercool: if you only want to know about FOSS virtualisation solutions, your options are, i think.. Virtualbox (which you said you dont want), KVM (which requires decent hardware), and qemu (which umm.. is now kvm)04:03
jsikeshey, anyone have any thoughts on why i can see wireless networks, but cannot connect? tried the driver fixes on forums with no luck. any ideas would be helpful?04:03
FernandoFLosha did you get my question or still not able to understand me?04:03
Loshakapace: all burns contain errors, mostly they are recoverable. Different dvd readers have different recovery capabilities. Usually the slower you burn, the fewer errors. Also, some brands do better on some burners than others. This is all covered in great detail on sites like http://club.myce.com04:04

bastid_raZorosirisx11: since you're on 9.10 you will not get a new xorg.conf but things will be auto detected.04:10
blakkheim\bMike\b: tty04:10
osirisx11bastid_raZor: one more thing.. how do i restart x? i can delete the file (i already backed it up before)04:10
osirisx11bastid_raZor: so i SHOULDNT RM my xorg.conf?04:10
ctmjr[deXter]: you need to make the "ubuntu" partition bootable with your favorite partition editor  like gnome partition editor04:10
V1k1n9Hey I have a screen limited to 1024x768 but ubuntu is launch with a 1152 resolution, how can I do to block it to maximum 1024 plz ? :(04:10
FernandoFthere is an application missing on my startup, after i did disable it accidentally. this provokes the message "authentication is required" when i try to access my data hard disks, instead of a window to put authentication in. Do you know which application i shd put in the window "add applications on startup" in order to solve my problem?04:11
[deXter]ctmjr: Ah good point, didn't check that.04:11
bastid_raZorosirisx11: make backups rather than deleting. much safer.. sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart  .will restart X ..if you're using gnome04:11
Dr_Willisivan_:  its possible it used some sort of UDF filesystem that windows cant handle. You made it by some sort of 'drag/drop to the dvd' type operation? like it was a big floppy disk? or did you use a more normal burning type method?04:11
bastid_raZorosirisx11: sudo service gdm restart is the preferred method on 9.10 and beyond.04:12
osirisx11bastid_raZor: thanks but you did not answer my question. i already did make backups.. but you say things will be autodetected but it won't create a new xorg.conf?04:12
\bMike\bblakkheim: great. Then what should 'terminal' refer to?04:12
blakkheim\bMike\b: a terminal emulator04:12
bastid_raZorosirisx11: with 9.10 i do not believe so. xorg.conf is depreciated from 9.10 on.  things are autodetected and run. although an xorg.conf can be used to specify things you want.04:12
\bMike\bblakkheim: which would be something like the gnome terminal program?04:13
blakkheim\bMike\b: yes04:13
\bMike\bblakkheim: Great, thanks a lot!04:13
ivan_Dr_Willis, i used a normal system... I burned the in Windows, and I use the burn button, I didnt do anything weird as far as i know04:13
osirisx11bastid_raZor: OHHHHHHHHHHH thanks... i didn't know that... okay so my plan is to rm my xorg.conf (already backed up), restart X, then try to install latest nvidia binary 195.3004:13
bastid_raZorosirisx11: that should do fine.04:14

MaLuSthis may sound a bit stupid but im new to linux and i dont know how to setup network share between mine and sakura's computers04:24
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  You could just add a proper entry in /etc/fstab for it - then it will mount as boot. No need for it to mount 'on the fly'04:24
FernandoFDr_Willis any idea?04:24
MaLuSwe are using ubuntu 9.1004:25
SeamusMaLuS: you need to install Samba04:25
pererik87don't really remeber i followed a solution for "ATI Radeon Mobility 9700", didn't work very well04:25
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  its the system wanting admin rights to mount the drive i imagine. If its a ntfs drive you may wan tto install/run the ntfs-config tool04:25
SeamusMaLuS: PM04:25
shawnboyMalus, both are ubuntu machines?04:25
CubeyAnyone know how to disable the on-screen volume meter that comes up when using volume controls on a keyboard?04:25
Awesome3001Seamus isn't Samba for windows/Ubuntu networking04:25
Sakurachan1yes they are shawn04:25
SeamusI suppose he could use NFS04:25
user123is there any ubuntu application or guide for using ubuntu for an internet cafe business?04:25
Seamusbut I think samba is easier to setup on ubuntu04:25
shawnboyI'd go for NFS instead of Samba.04:26
FernandoFDr_Willis i have 4 hard disks for data and all doing  same ... it means i can  have a problem with  encription application that is not validating04:26
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  these are Linux drives then? what filesystem are they?04:26
shawnboyI *think* NFS is supposed to be faster / more efficient if that matters.04:26
=== jsikes is now known as foo_
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  IVe never used any of the encryption features. So no idea what controlls that04:26
MaLuSwhichever is easiest for ubuntu 9.10 and stupid users lol04:26
Dr_Willisshawnboy:  nfs should be much faster from what i gather/seen04:26
FernandoFDr_Willis NTFS04:27
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  then i would add a proper fstab entry for each drive. and be done with it.04:27
FernandoFDr_Willis I would be happy if I can  disable them04:27
V1k1n9_sebi : I have the same problem with the first driver : 1152x864 -> Out of range, nothing on the screen. And the ati's one : 1600x1200 (the screen is half visible :s). I can change it but if I reboot the resolution will come back at 1152 or 1600 :(04:27
Sakurachan1so grand vote between Samba and NFS is...     ??04:27
FernandoFDr_Willis it was dne by my system, not my choice04:28
Sakurachan1awesome :)04:28
Sakurachan1TA v much04:28
shawnboybut for casual use it really doesn't matter much. I'd try NFS first. If you have difficulties (u shouldn't) then try Samba.04:28

shawnboySo... my turn. :) Why won't flash install work on my fresh Karmic 64?04:30
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  if i want to access my NTFS hard drive - i always add a proper fstab entry. I dont rely on gnomes system to auto mount them - it always seems to do things wrong.04:30
karmstshawnboy: I know the answer to that04:30
Seamusshawnboy: because adobe doesn't have a 64bit flash on linux OR windows04:30
pererik87Try the 32 bit flash version04:31
karmstshawnboy this is a 64bit alpha in the adobe labs for flash04:31
Dr_WillisHmm.. thers 64bit flash for linux...04:31
bastid_raZorshawnboy: ubuntu-restricted-extras does well for me on my 64bit system.04:31

FernandoFDr_Willis I have 5 hard disks all doing the same04:34
shawnboykarmst: I went to URL. I'm confused tho. In thought officially released Firefox was only 32-bit and therefore required 32-bit plugin. What am i missing?04:35
karmstI use the 64 bit plugin04:35
karmstI had to make my own plugins directory in ~/.mozilla/firefox/04:36
shawnboykarmst, to clarify, you use 64-bit flash plugin on official release of Firefox? not a pre-release 64-bit version of Firefox?04:36
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  if a ntfs disk dosent get properly 'closed' like if windows crashes, or hibernates - then linux wont auto-mount it -  you would be best to reboot to windows and have windows scan/fix all the filesystems. and dont use windows hibernate/suspend also.04:36
Dr_WillisFernandoF:  learning how to use the ntfs-3g tool will also be a very good thing to learn.04:37

zigglesare you guys able to access "Chapters" under the Misc tab when an individual video is selected?04:43
V1k1n9Hi, how can i limit my ubuntu to a 1024x768 resolution, plz it was changed after each reboot.04:43
zigglesI have been through a few tutorials and i believe there is supposed to be a chapter area under Misc.04:43
ardchoilleziggles: I never noticed that before, never tried it04:44
bastid_raZorzong-qi: network-tools.com will give you dns info as well.04:44
Peloziggles,  let me check but from memory , the chapter feature is just a time you set for devede to devide the file so you can use the chapter featur of most stand alone dvd players to skip ahead faster04:44
ardchoillePelo: Isn't that simply denoting a set time for each chapter?04:45
zong-qithanks ZykoticK9 & Kieran0413 I have the details now I reboot jaunty and see if I can get it to work now :)04:45

pererik87how to remove joine/left @xchat04:45
zigglesshould that be chapters, or titles?04:45
zigglesbased on what i read, i thought it was titles.04:46
Peloardchoille, not for each chapter just a set time period , can'T be chapter specific if you get my meaning04:46
ziggles*chapters, sorry, not titles.04:46
ardchoillepererik87: right the tab, choose Settings and look for the option04:46
ardchoillePelo: Yeah, that's what I thought04:46
ardchoilleziggles: that setting tells the player how long each "skip" will contain04:47
Peloziggles, if you open the propterty page for a given file,  in advance options,  under the general tab you will see,   size of chapteres in minues , that 's the chapter ofpiton you have04:47
ardchoilleso skipping ahead 5 mins or 10 mins, etc04:47
adamonline45_Odd, any ideas why the samba GUI configuration does nothing when I click 'ok' on a few windows, such as user setup or server setup?04:47
Peloziggles,  if you want your user to select from a set of 4 min long files,  you need to make a title for each,  not bunch them up under one title04:48
Peloziggles, does that answer your question ?04:48
ardchoilleziggles: I always just put one video per title04:49
zigglesPelo, jesus... i am blind.04:49
zigglesPelo, i spent like an hour trying to find that option yesterday and was Sure it was missing. :(04:49
Pelojust Pelo ,  jesus doesn'T hang out in this channel,  he only does dal.net04:49
zigglesPelo, ardchoille, thanks for the advice... I think i'm going to do 1 vid per title but now i know where the stinkin chapter setting is. lol04:50

Pelowisecliff, try to keep your questions statement to one line,  this is a busy channel and using the enter key for punctuation makes you hard to follow,  try asking again , in one line this time05:10
mediaprodigyziroday: thanks also for your help05:10
Dr_Willisavalon_:  huh? I just run rtorrent as my user.. and i make a directory as my user.. in my users home dir.. im not doing anything special/weird/odd....05:10
zirodaymediaprodigy: I'm looking at the ppa page https://launchpad.net/~freenx-team/+archive/ppa05:10
EsatYuceHow can i search one unknow files with suffix .deb?05:11
Dr_Willisavalon_:   i just have rtorrent save things to /home/willis/torrents/rtorrent.work   ktorrent i got going to /home/willis/torrents/ktorrent.work  :)05:11
PeloEsatYuce,  locate *.deb ?05:11
Sakurachan1erm okay, can you i'm me a stupids guide to using and setting up two computers together so that i can access the servers files such as music with out it saying 'unable to mount' wen i double click it05:11
Pelowisecliff, I don'T allow private msg, talk to me in the channel05:11
zirodaySakurachan1: are the two computers both running linux?05:12
EsatYucei typed *.deb in my home directory, there is no result05:12
mediaprodigyziroday: yes.. so am i.. how do you determine from looking at the page to only input ppa:freenx-team/ppa as the url is a bit different.05:12
PeloSakurachan1, hold on I have the perfect thign for you05:12
zirodaySakurachan1: well you can access the files via ssh, samba or nfs. I'd recommend ssh as being the simplest05:12
pererik87trying a new ati driver. im going down :P05:12
Dr_WillisSakurachan1:  you could use 'sshfs' and mount the other pc's directories where you wanted - rather easially..05:12
PeloSakurachan1, I do the nfs one , works great  http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Sharing_Ubuntu_Linux_Folders_with_Remote_Linux_and_UNIX_Systems05:12
zirodaymediaprodigy: it says at the top under the "Adding this PPA to your system"05:13
Dr_WillisSakurachan1:  nfs will be much faster for file transfers..05:13
mattameusEsatYuce, if you want to find all files that end in deb you open a terminal and run "sudo find / -name -print" without the parenthesis, there is probably a nicer gui way, but I don't keep up on those things05:13

mediaprodigyziroday: i was on a different page.. i c now05:14
Pelowisecliff, what is this wiseken.dev thing ?05:14
Dr_Williswisecliff:  you could edit their /etc/hosts file and put in a proper ip for the host. Of is this a actual real machine with dns server entries?05:14
bastid_raZorkraitos: uninstall them.. use synaptic05:14
wisecliffi did05:15
kraitosbastid_raZor, wouldn't sudo apt-get autoremove, remove them also?05:15
Dr_Williswisecliff:  be more verbose and concise in your answers.05:15
wisecliffstill not working05:15
dandamancan i ask someone a quick wget question, perhaps in pm since its OT, no one is in the wget # :\05:15
Pelodandaman, just ask here05:16
jtajikraitos: what I typically do is search for linux-image, find the older version numbers you want to uinstall, say 2.6.31-15, then search for "2.6.31-15" and uninstall everything that shows up05:16
mediaprodigyone i add a repository what do i have to do for it to show up in the synaptic package manager?05:16
jtajikraitos: not old kernels05:16
bastid_raZorkraitos: not unless you provide the full package name of each kernel image. just using apt-get autoremove will not remove them05:16
Dr_Willismediaprodigy:  after adding a repo you  'update/refresh' the package listing.05:16
hmf*hmf* nvm, im leaving05:16
dandamanPelo: how do i use wget to save a file in a certain directory, like wget http://site.com/image.jpg <something that makes that image go into a directory i want>05:16

mattameusEsatYuce, you said you were trying to install cmusphinx? it appears those files are not .deb files, and will be a bit more painful to install, at least if you downloaded them from http://cmusphinx.sourceforge.net/wordpress/download/05:17

mobius2Greetings Ubuntu channel05:21
Pelotheshadow, it won'T write a grub.cfg file,  grub 2.0 is very different then 1.0 ,  your fine05:21
Dr_Willisdandaman:  see   http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/05/09/a-root-shell-on-ubuntu-the-right-way/05:21
dandamanwget http://www.qtsoftware.com/images/products/qt-designer-screenshot-mac > imaging/05:21
mobius2I am having a rather odd problem,  it has to do with the way windows appear in my gnome disply05:21
dandamani want to specify that the folder is within the current directory05:22
kraitosok now that i have gotten ride of the two old kernal version, i want the grub menu to only show the option for ubuntu and windows 7, can anyone help?05:22
mobius2the resolution is fine and quite sharp at  12 hundred somthing05:22
Pelo<dandaman> wget http://www.qtsoftware.com/images/products/qt-designer-screenshot-mac > ~/imaging/05:22
dandamangoing all the way from root would not work05:22
bastid_raZorkraitos: how did you uninstall them?05:22
theshadowPelo: umm except my grub is loading the boot.cfg file and it's not loading the 2.6.31 kernel05:22
Dr_Willisdandaman:  i think thers a special wget option for that.. or cd into imagng first05:22
mobius2but when applications are runn ,   they appear in 600 x 800 resolution  making it impossible to  interact with many of their  I/O   yes/ no/ continue buttons05:22
dandamanhmm ok05:22
dandamani think i can do a work around for this05:23
kraitosbastid_raZor, i went to symnaptic and remove all the old one like you told me and i rebooted and it worked.05:23
mobius2is there a way to launch a program and command the resolution for it to appear in  from the terminal?05:23
bastid_raZorkraitos: then they should be gone. synaptic removes them automatically05:23
Dr_Willisdandaman:  seen the man pages - the -p (prefix) option thers no need work around05:23
mattameusEsatYuce: type ALT+F2, then click on "Run in Terminal" and paste this into the textbox (without quotes) "sudo apt-get install sphinx2-bin"05:23
Dr_Willisdandaman:  http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/manual/wget.html#Directory-Options05:23
Pelotheshadow, check in the /etc/default/ folder for a grub related file, it constains settings that you can change,  but that's as much as I remember ,  I think you cna specify which kernel to boot from there , by selecting anumber05:23
Dr_Willisdandaman:  Set directory prefix to prefix. The directory prefix is the directory where all other files and subdirectories will be saved to, i.e. the top of the retrieval tree. The default is ‘.’ (the current directory).05:23
mattameusit will ask you for your password and install sphinx05:24
kraitosbastid_raZor, right, but now i want it to show only ubuntu and windows 7 option instead of the recovery and memory test, could you help with this?05:24
bastid_raZorkraitos: that you'll need to do some grub2 scripting..05:24
bastid_raZor!grub2 | kraitos05:24
ubottukraitos: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager in Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub205:24
Dr_Williskraitos:  for memtest you chmod -x the /etc/grub.d/memtest file.05:24
theshadowPelo: Thanks, but thats just it. At boot grub is loading /boot/grub/boot.cfg which is a completely different format from menu.lst and in the comments it says that /usr/sbin/grub-update should generate this file but its not05:24
Dr_Williskraitos:  other is controlled by the /etc/default/grub config options I belive.05:25
bastid_raZorkraitos: also you may need to keep those.. they are important if things go wrong05:25
PeloI'm off to bed, g'night folks05:25
kraitosbastid_raZor, i was just going to ask for a link thanks05:25
bastid_raZorkraitos: good luck.05:25

CubeyAnyone familiar with the black volume meter that displays when you use keyboard volume controls?05:34
Dr_WillisCubey:  the volume 'osd' i think its called.05:35

Dr_WillisCubey:  never noticed or tried.05:36
Cubeyit's a bit annoying when it pulls you out of full screen.. :S05:36
Dr_Willisnever had it pull me out of fullscreen either.05:36
x1r3Hey all, I'm having problems with my sound. When I plug in my headphone no sounds come out of them and continues to come out the speakers anyone know how to fix this.05:36
Dr_WillisUnless you are refering to flash videos...05:36
Dr_WillisYou look at a flash video wrong and it exists fullscreen05:36

Dr_WillisI never wtch flash (or rarely) so No idea on it.05:37
PC_Nerd101Is there any way to have content form the sse session displayed on the computer screen, even though the session is to another computer?   I do have a keyboard  hooked up to the machine, but its easier for me to control a number of computers over ssh and just see progress on the second screen.... ?05:37
Dr_WillisI use dual monitors. fullscreen flash dosent work worth a pooo...05:37

crabgrassnone of the other entries have SEC_TYPE06:18
jtajicrabgrass: hmm.. well ext3 can be mounted as ext2, ignoring the journal06:18
crabgrassoh, okay.06:18
crabgrassi'm pretty sure it's been formatted as ext3 thought06:18
nikhil_hi, does ubuntu compile x from the x free tree?06:18
nameo0Losha: ya06:19
crabgrassi have no idea why ext2 came up in regards to anything06:19
ghost1982hey can anyone else confirm that linuxwireless.org is down06:19
jtajicrabgrass: yes that's normal for ext3.. it's essentially just ext2 + journal06:19
ghost1982im kind of worried about a mitm attack on one of my systems06:19
nameo0i click on the link and then save it like it says and nothing happens when i try to open the download06:19
crabgrassghost1982: it's up, but the site is dead. there's just a placeholder.06:19
crabgrassjtaji: but none of the other entries include that.06:19
ghost1982ok so i was just paranoid06:20
ghost1982thanks man06:20
crabgrassyeah, but that's a good thing.06:20
Hunt5AJC_Z0 : i reinstalled the packages what eveer i found in apt-get list. what else can i try?06:20

karmstok in init.d scripts what does the command fi do?06:20
kapuhow do I use ubuntu/unix utilities to take a text file and automatically insert a new line character every n characters without cutting words apart?06:20
Loshanameo0: don't open it, save it to a file and then run it from a terminal...06:20
jtajicrabgrass: yes TYPE is the important one06:20
crabgrassyeah, i'm setting type to ext3 for all of these06:21
crabgrass...except the reiser and swap ones06:21
jtajikarmst: bash scripting... fi ends an if block06:21

wolterhi people, i need help.. my touchpad is scrolling vertically when I rub it horizontally06:41
darknikhil_, apt-cache search linux-kernel06:41
wolternikhil_, you have to use the tools man06:42
jtajinikhil_: /usr/src, assuming you've installed linux-source06:42
Hunt5Hi all, i am not seeing the battery status displayed on my laptop, how cani enable that?06:42
darkwolter, it is on a laptop? what's the model?06:42
wolterdark, dell xps m153006:42
wolterdark the problem is new.. i could scroll right before06:42
Hunt5jtaji: i reinstalled the relevant packages i saw in apt-get wt --reinstall06:42
wolterdark it started after i tried to enable 2 finger scrolling and maybe changed some wrong lines in the wrong files06:43
Hunt5how do i check my laptop's model?06:43
* dark can't help both, but is a little afraid: his laptop will come in a week..06:43
jukebox-zeroWhat's the prefered grub rescue/system recovery disc for 9.10?06:43
darkHunt5, hm you can check the componentes, lspci06:43
jtajiHunt5: system > prefs > power management, general tab, always display icon06:43
=== nikhil__ is now known as nikhil_
Muskat33rjukebox-zero, i might be having similar issues as you are having, i just download the i386 x86 windows ubuntu, and am burning to CD for Live CD atm06:44
Hunt5in my power mgmt, i gave Always display an icon, but i still dont see the icon displayed?06:45
jukebox-zeroMuskat33r: Depends, what issues are you having? lemme scroll up, heh.06:45
Hunt5jtaji: can you help me out in coming out of the blunder i did?06:46
Muskat33rj-zero, the install of ubuntu studio wasn't successful, halts on step selecting and installing, at the point of ttf-mscorefonts-installer, and now when i try to boot, i get grub rescue> msg after post06:46
jukebox-zeroMuskat33r, Nah, you're getting even farther along than I am. I can't even load the grub due to it doesn't recognize the UUID of my boot drive. I can fix it on a per boot basis using the live cd and the grub command line, but I need a more permanent solution.06:47
Hunt5hey can anyone pls help me in getting my gstreamer again to work? i removed .so files from /usr/lib, but reinstalled them again using apt-get --reinstall06:47
Hunt5does anyone use gstreamer over here?06:47
TonyPonyghost1982: u there?06:48
jukebox-zeroHunt5, I don't know anything about gstreamer per say, but did you completely remove it before reinstalling?06:48
TonyPonyghost1982: it worked as you said...  i clicked wireless icon and then my router.  Works on 9.0406:49
Muskat33rjukebox-zero, can you dual boot or only boot into the live cd?06:49
Hunt5jukebox-zero: i am lost...i am really confused now for myself06:49
TonyPonywhen I run liveCD does it write anything to my C: drive?06:49
Hunt5jukebox-zero: what does " completely remove it before reinstalling?" mean?06:50
nikhil_when doing: sudo apt-get build-dep linux, I get: E: Unable to find a source package for linux-meta -- could someone help please?06:50
Hunt5what am i supposed to do for that?06:50
jukebox-zerocan someone wiser than I point hunt5 in the direction for the apt command for removing an installed package?06:50
nikhil_i think it may be apt-get remove06:50
jukebox-zerooh, and probably it's dependancies06:50
Hunt5jukebox-zero: it was never a wiser thing, but i did it and i need to solve it..06:51
jukebox-zeroHunt5 try a man apt or a man apt-get or something along those lines in a terminal until you find the command for deleting/removing/uninstalling a package. run apt-get autoclean, then try reinstalling and see if that helps.06:52
Muskat33rthere are so many people here, wish i knew what i am doing to help others06:53
jukebox-zeroMuskat33r, I *could* dual boot, but I only got 6gb free on my second drive for an install so I can only boot from live cd for purposes of this glitch. Mine pertains to grub2 somehow not wanting to boot from an ext4 partition I think.06:55
Muskat33rjukebox-zero, ah ic, i installed grub and not grub2 bc of msg saying it was experimental06:56
wolterdark so you cannot help me?06:57
jukebox-zeromuskrat33r, Hmm, mine may be grub as well then. It's whatever ships with 9.10 live cd by default. both update-grub and update-grub2 commands work so I never really checked into it. Only assumed.06:57
Muskat33ranyone tell me how i can identify partitions, as the (hdA,B) format, so i know what #'s i used for /,/home,swap06:58

powertool08Muskat33r: You can go by size, or mount them one by one and take notes.07:00
woltercan somebody help me with my crazy touchpad?07:01
bilalakhtarhello? anybody here?07:03
Muskat33ris there a reason why i need more than 1 partitions, such as /,/home,swap (3 there)07:04
Organizmdepends what you're trying to do.07:04
Organizmbut everyone's got a swap partition.07:04
Organizmand by everyone i mean lots of folks : )07:05
powertool08Muskat33r: You want /home on its own partition, trust me. It makes reinstalling a breeze.07:05
Organizmoh yeah.  true that.07:05
Organizmthose are really the only partitions i have come to think of it.07:05
Captain_Haddockubuntu keeps repeatedly downloading the same package list updates when I run apt-get update07:05
Organizmi have four.07:05
Captain_Haddockany idea why?07:05
Organizmi have /, /home/me, /home/ftp and swap07:06
Muskat33r0rganizm, any suggestion on GB sizes for each?07:06
Organizmand me and ftp are mirrored.  so i've got 5 drives total in use.07:06
Organizm;  J07:06
Organizmthe os is usually small.07:06
Organizmso like 8-12GB should be fine.07:06
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: Maybe there is a GPG error07:06
bilalakhtarHi guys i am having a problem with the drum login sound. for more details please go to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1373964 How do i solve the problem?07:07
powertool08I have /, /home, /swap, and /windoze /some other windows connected partition I should reclaim for space07:07
ne1which web server will be better for webif of openwrt?07:07
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: doesn't report anything07:07
Organizmand i think swap is usually set to twice your ram size (unless you've got a lot of ram like 1GB<)07:07
faileaswell, that's if you want to suspend07:07
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: Oh then the reason might be that the repos are updated very frequently07:08
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: every 2 minutes? This has been happening for a few days now07:08
Captain_Haddockthe package list downloads are all the same size07:08
Muskat33r0granizm, do you know any useful commands when i get a grub rescue> prompt at boot? besides ls07:09
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: but in most cases when you run apt-get update when the repos are not updated apt-get simply marks the unchanged files as "Hit"07:09
=== ari_stress is now known as satpam_zzz
Captain_HaddockThere's always one which is 1353KB large and another 5133KB large (and others too).. it downloads them everytime07:10
Organizmheh... Muskat33r.  i do not.  i'd probably pop in a liveCD and read the grub man pages and try to figure out what to do from there.07:10
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: Is apt-get listing the packages as "Hit" or "Get"07:10
Captain_Haddockthis is also the case when I use synaptic to do so07:10
xeerOrganizm: you rely on your swap often? I'm comfortable without a swap and my system runs fine.07:10
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: GET.. it's downloading them over and over again.07:10
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: Try clearing your apt-cache07:10
Organizmxeer, i don't actually 'rely' on it.  according to top, i don't use it very often.  it's just sort of a safety blanket, i guess.07:11
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: by typing apt-cache clean07:11
darkwolter, no :( I was asking because by providing this information, others could help you better07:11
darkwolter, try posting in the forums07:11
Hunt5jukebox-zero: autoclean clears out the local repository of retrieved package files, in this  retrieved package files meaning??07:11
Organizmi've got a GB of ram though.  and i'm actually using slackware and not ubuntu.  though i do have ubuntu on my laptop.07:11
xeerOrganizm: my safety blankey is restarting firefox often. I've seen it grow to 2gb of memory with only 1 page open.07:11
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: no such command07:12
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: sudo apt-get autoclean07:12
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: sudo apt-get clean07:12
Captain_HaddockI've done both of them07:12
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: no, sudo apt-cache clean07:12
Organizmxeer, lol... i know what you mean.  i've seen 800MB of cache on behalf of firefox.  i have no idea where that goes or why it's used.07:12
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: it says invalid operation07:12
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: sorry sudo apt-get clean07:12
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: that's what I did.07:13
bilalakhtarso what did it say?07:13
Muskat33r0rganizm, if i have 4gb ram, do i need swap?07:13
OrganizmMuskat33r, if i had 4GB, i probably wouldn't bother.07:14
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: Reading package lists... Done                                                 Building dependency tree                                                      Reading state information... Done07:14
Captain_Haddockbilalakhtar: it didn't have anything to clean.07:14
FireCrotchOrganizm: it's probably the cache for when you click the "back" button in firefox07:14
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: try update again07:14
Prescience500does anyone know of a repository (or where i can find it) i can use to update totem to the latest version?07:15
OrganizmFireCrotch, yeah.  but you figure if it's caching 800MB, i'd have downloaded that much... i've got a 1Mb connection... there isn't time to get that much content.  so like i said, i haven't a clue what it's using that for.07:15
Muskat33r0rganizm, did you split partitions into /home/me and /home/ftp so you can change access rights for certain files much easier?07:15
OrganizmMuskat33r, i have those partitions because they're on physically separate hard drives.  i have a two disk mirror for each of those mount points.07:16
bilalakhtarCaptain_Haddock: Analyze each and every message you get during apt-get update07:16
FireCrotchOrganizm: memory leak caused by a poorly written extension?07:16
Organizmcause storage is cheap and i don't like the idea of losing my data.07:16
Muskat33r0rganizm, does your comp run noisy or hot bc of somany hdd?07:17
OrganizmFireCrotch, i do have some third party plugins.  that's certainly possible.07:17

DiverdudeHow do i see who is the owner of a file?08:57
dmbkiwiDiverdude: ls -l08:57
timfrostHunt5: characters that the shell (or other programs) interpret as meaning 'match any character' or 'match any sequence of characters' are referred to as 'wild card characters'.  The shell and the dpkg command use the '*' as a wild card character (it matches any sequence of characters)08:57
FlannelDiverdude: `ls -l /path/to/file` and then it's the third (fourth?) column (first one that's text instead of symbols/etc)08:57

Hunt5timfrost: ok thank you. so what do i need to do next?08:59
faileasDeathspike: er.. remove gdm i suppose. why does server even have gnome installed tho?08:59
FlannelDeathspike, faileas: just stop GDM from starting at boot would be enough.09:00
Flannel!bum | Deathspike09:00
ubottuDeathspike: Boot options: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions - To add/remove startup services, you can use the package 'bum', or update-rc.d - To add your own startup scripts, use /etc/rc.local - See also !grub and !dualboot - Making a boot floppy: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/BootFloppy - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SmartBootManagerHowto09:00

DeathspikeFlannel: Only MySQL and Apache are left enabled, GDM is disabled as well. :(09:03

ustun_hi, can someone enlighten me on the way font antialiasing works? As far as I understand, there is .fonts.conf , then there are individual font settings for Gnome, XFCE and KDE (or do they just modify .fonts.conf), then there are .Xresources. I am confused as to which setting is used when. To add more confusion, some terminal programs have an option to antialias fonts. Help?10:39
ustun_And then there is dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig-config too10:39
ustun_And then there is some info regarding BCI which is not enabled by default, however this seems rather obsolete as far as I understand10:40
