thesabryI installed vlc couple of days ago on my ubuntu 9.10 but it doesn't work. I cannot read mp3. If I had the files in the library it shows lenght = 0 and nothing happen if I press play.

LA1Can anyone help me?00:04
LA1I've been having a problem with Ubuntu.00:04
highclassholeedbian, you have to specify in the configuration for samba what access users will have00:04
greenlynxnashirak, if you can get to 8.04, you'll be able to upgrade directly to 10.04 in april, the next LTS.  otherwise you have to go through each distro.  maybe best to backup or copy your files and clean install ..00:04

alexxxxxxHello! Anyone knows why gparted might report smaller size for a hdd? (a 500gb hdd is reported as a 465gb hdd) thanks00:05
LA1There's this constant drumming noise.00:05
LA1It won't stop.00:05

highclassholeLA1, I suggest inviting people over and gathering in a circle.00:06
alexxxxxxblakkheim:  what about them?00:06
nashirakgreenlynx:  The only thing I can think of is create a 7.10 disk from a repositiory... Upgrade to that then imediatly upgrade to 8.04 with another distro disk.  Would that work?  My only concern are the repository servers for 7.10 are probably not there00:06
blakkheimalexxxxxx: that's (part of) the answer to your question00:06
LA1But seriously. XD00:06
highclassholeLA1, you try restarting x?00:06
edoardohighclasshole thank you..and what about the wifi card? no way to let it go?00:07

jonathan__hello! during boot process I get the error "couldn't acces pid file for nmbd-........-........" (The dots represent some numbers but I'm not sure which. I think it isn't that important.) Boot progress hangs up there, no matter whether you're waiting 5 minutes or 5 hours... any ideas what is wrong there?00:07
blakkheimalexxxxxx: the other part is gigabytes vs gibibytes00:07

benediktHow can i modify kernel arguments on karmic? /boot/grub/menu.1st seens to have vanished..?00:07

s3r3n1t7Is it possible and if so, how, to access the HD on which wubi was installed?00:10
alexxxxxxblakkheim: fdisk -l reports correct size (500gb) so it isn't a gigabytes vs gibibytes issue right?00:10
geirhaalexxxxxx: Harddrive sizes are listed in metrics by the manufacturer, but gparted and most programs list sizes with binary prefix. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix00:11
youngbullhey  I need to do "sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower auto" sometime at bootup, and I'm not really sure how to get it to run as root and do it at the right point... You see my wlan card won't set txpower right in 9.10...00:11

geirhaalexxxxxx: 465 GiB = 465*1024*1024*1024 = 499289948160 bytes ~= 500GB00:13
highclasshole<edoardo> actually my bad, you need the kernel with the 8192 staging drivers00:13

edoardohighclasshole I think so too, but how can I do if I need the 2.6.28 because of the LAN and 2.6.32 because of the wireless?00:16
mkanyicyyoungbull, add "wireless-txpower auto" under the wlan0 interface on the /etc/network/interfaces. reading through "man interfaces" and "man iwconfig" might help00:16

Quan-Timesje46: yes, you can do that and run prorams from it if you choose.. BUT be careful of permissions and what not03:42
geitenneukerwhy is the NTFS stuff not in the kernel?03:42
geitenneukerput it into the kernel asap03:42

zirodaylemiffe: ask in #freenode03:42
Quan-TimeNTFS was for a long time "read only".. writing to it would often corrupt the entire disk.. thus, its still being developed03:42

geitenneukermaybe with kernel 2.6.36 or something03:42
Quan-Timesje46: yer of course, windows will see it without issue..03:43
Quan-Timesje46: i run steam that way.. so linux or windows can use it.. saves on install space :)03:43
geitenneukeris there a way to run a mirc client in the kernel?03:43
Quan-Timegeitenneuker: mirc client ?03:43
geitenneukermirc = multitasking irc03:43
Quan-Timeumm.. mirc IS a client.. you mean IRC client ?03:44
geitenneukerin a interactive shell03:44
sje46Quan-Time, I'm confused.  My linux can see windows files fine.  I'm asking ...like, you know how when you delete something, it doesn't delete the data, just the pointer?03:44
LinuX2halfNo it doesn't boot from the disc03:44
sje46LinuX2half, what OS are you on now?03:44
geitenneukermy mouse is messed up for some reason03:44
Quan-Timesje46: if you delete something from your windows partition, while in linux.. it will be deleted. when you boot to windows, it will be gone03:44
LinuX2halfI'm using the Intrepid Live CD03:45
geitenneukeri am looking for a 5ganjahz mouse03:45
sje46Quan-Time, pretend I have one OS.  Just Windows.  Or Linux.  Doesn't matter.  If you have a file, and delete it, that information is stil on the disk until something writes it over.03:45
Quan-Timegeitenneuker: i THINK you can run irssi like that, but i dont know why you would want to. its terminal based incase you TOTALLY screw up your GUI / gfx,, if you X session is stuffed, you can still load up irssi and get help in here about fixing.. is that what you mean ?03:45

ubottue40ti4st: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - See also: /msg ubottu stages03:46
Quan-Timesje46: BUT the pointer file (FAT info) ISNT moved to the recycle bin for easy access.. you manually have to run some sort of undelete / unerase program to rebuild it03:46
LinuX2halfHow do I boot from the CD? Karmic seemed to have changed03:46
sje46LinuX2half, okay, my friend couldnt boot from a disk, he had to install something.  Have you tried just putting in the disk while on your current OS?03:47
Quan-TimeLinuX2half: umm.. boot from cd ? put in drive, reboot computer.. ?03:47
=== jon is now known as Guest34949
LinuX2halfYes, but it seemed that it doesn't react to the disc03:47
sje46LinuX2half, even when you put it in right now?03:48
_6ihow do i edit/remove enties from the grub menu in karmic? (all the tutorials i've found use "grub", but i have grub-* apps)03:48
pete__when I try to mount a .bin I made using DD to clone a HD it says wrong standard identifier in volume descriptor, exiting03:48
LinuX2halfsje46: yes03:48
sje46Quan-Time, okay, so when I move a file from a linux partition to a windows partition, I'd have to wipe it from the linux partition if I don't want it to be there anymore03:48
sje46LinuX2half, do other CDs work?03:49
Quan-TimeLinuX2half: ok.. in your bios.. when you first turn on your computer, you can hit like F1, or ESC, or DEL or somethin.. you get your BIOS boot options.. you probably have "boot from CDROM" set to "DISABLE" or something similar.. OR your boot option "priority" list is harddisk 1, cdrom 2, etc..change that.. IF it cant find a cdrom, it goes to boot device 2. the hdd... understand ?03:49
sje46Quan-Time, I don't think it's bios if he can't use the CD at all03:49
Quan-Timesje46: umm. if you MOVE it, it tells the FAT (file allocation table) taht the space can now be overwritten.. you dont have to actively "scrub" it. if you move it, your all set03:50
pete__when I try to mount a .bin I made using DD to clone a HD it says wrong standard identifier in volume descriptor, exiting03:50
LinuX2halfQuan-time: my BIO setting only has the boot order and thats it. There's no option boot options03:50
Quan-Timesje46: OH... is the CD burnt in a bootable way ? i had to deal with someone about this issue previously03:50
greyfoxsyluxexcuse me, I have a question about Linux x64...i'll wait until someone is available though03:50
zirodaygreyfoxsylux: please just ask :)03:50
sje46Quan-Time, I don't have to scrub it, but I want to.03:50
sje46So I guess I have to, as was my suspicion03:51
greyfoxsyluxNow, I want to run Linux Ubuntu 9.10 x64, but I am not sure if x86 applications would work under it?03:51
greyfoxsyluxBecause since the x64 flash plugin is still an alpha...03:51
zirodayLinuX2half: is CD listed as the first boot option?03:51
greyfoxsyluxFor Mozilla Firefox03:51
LinuX2halfziroday: yes as optical drive03:51

greyfoxsyluxnot just that03:52
=== fwaokda__ is now known as fwaokda_
Quan-Timesje46: ok.. there is a "secure erase" option.. so it writes all blank space (FFFFFFxFF) over it... a move is "copy, delete".. a secure move / secure delete is "delete, write over it with blank space"..03:52
LinuX2halfziroday: I had dealt with this issue previously but somehow this situation seemed different03:52
greyfoxsyluxWant to be able to also run VMs for local technical support and some drivers that might not be developed for 64-bit Linux03:52
sje46I know Quan-Time .  I think I get it.  Thanks03:52
Quan-Timesje46: if you do it via nautilus, if you "empty" your recycle bin, sorta does the same thing03:53
jtajigreyfoxsylux: the 64-bit flash plugin is considered beta now.... works great too03:53
LinuX2halfziroday: Back when before Karmic release, my Jaunty can boot from the CD just by pressing the keys03:53
Quan-Timeyou CAN technically get that data back, but its a serious pain in the ass03:53
sje46that's why I use WIPE03:53
greyfoxsyluxokay that sounds neat...i should give it a shot. But, can I upgrade my Linux Ubuntu OS from x86 to x64 via Upgrade method?03:53
Quan-Timesje46: yup, wipe is good03:53
sje46I WIPE everything I delete03:53

greyfoxsyluxif I can't not a big deal as I move my stuff to my NTFS partition, but I don't want to move it all if I can avoid it03:54
LinuX2halfziroday: oh okay alright its fine.03:54
geitenneukerCut the conversation, just open your mouth03:54
Quan-TimeLinuX2half: ok.. is the CD burnt as a bootable one ? someone was in here the other day, and it didnt burn properly.. he had a iso, and windows inbuilt burner thing screwed it up. he had to download a iso burning program (img burn / infra recorder, etc.. all freware) to burn the iso correctly03:54
sje46Quan-Time, so I think I should just copy all the files to the Windows partition, and then wipe all them from the Ubuntu partition03:55
LinuX2halfQuan-time: yes the Cd can be booted back when I'm using Jaunty03:55
Dimoutlookthanks for letting me lurk will be back tomorrow night03:55
Quan-Timeif you want it to be totally "secure" you can do that sje46,,03:55
Quan-TimeLinuX2half: oh.. ok. so the CD works as a bootable in some situations, but not others ?03:56
greyfoxsyluxCan I upgrade straight from x86 to x64 Ubuntu OS?03:56
LinuX2halfQuan-time: Well, I have only this Cd to test with.03:56
jtajigreyfoxsylux: no03:56
Quan-Timegreyfoxsylux: nope03:56
greyfoxsyluxaah okay03:56
greyfoxsyluxguess I will need to move around files then03:57
LinuX2halfQuan-Time: I do have a window installation disc and that won't boot either03:57
Quan-Timegreyfoxsylux: you CAN do it, but its not ... just reinstall over the top.. prolly easiest03:57
TidersCan you mount an MDF file?03:57
Quan-TimeLinuX2half: oh. ok.03:57
greyfoxsyluxah okay03:57
greyfoxsyluxI'll just probably format it03:57
Quan-TimeTiders: not directly, but you can mount .iso files.. you can convert the MDF first to .iso, then mount it.03:57
greyfoxsyluxI thought you could mount MDF files?03:57
TidersQuan-Time, How do you convert them?03:57
greyfoxsyluxI would do it via Windows Virtual DVDs03:58
Quan-TimeTiders: you want a GUI or a command line way ?03:58
greyfoxsyluxLinux should be able to do the same thing03:58
TidersQuan-Time, Doesnt matter03:58
Quan-Timegreyfoxsylux: not natively.. its a program to do it.. much like windows.. damon tools.. etc.. everything is addon03:58
Quan-TimeTiders: 2 secs.03:58
greyfoxsyluxcan't something like gmountiso or something work?03:58
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.03:59
LinuX2halfQuan-time: Like when I turned on the laptop with the CD inserted, then after the boot menu; GRUB loading stage 1.5. After that I try to press the keys but that won't work because the number appeared whenever I press the F keys03:59
bastid_raZorLinuX2half: press the keys before the grub loading comes up03:59
greyfoxsyluxokay final question before I upgrade to x64...what can't I do if I choose Linux Ubuntu x64?03:59
blue1greyfoxsylux: what do you mean?04:00
firekoolthey fixed most of the x64 issues04:00
Quan-TimeTiders: http://www.poweriso.com/download.htm - poweriso has a linux version.. it will convert isos easy for you.. hope this helps,, theres also another one which runs in WINE if thats your thing. forgotten its name04:00
LinuX2halfbastid_raZor: Well the computer would process slower when the disc is inserted.04:00

marcuyrww, is that ubuntu guys don't use email? ;)04:04
Quan-TimeTiders: yes it might.. safedisk is random.. sometimes it 100% doesnt care, other times, its a pig...04:04
blue1greyfoxsylux: that solution worked for me - I had to schlep for over 2 weeks to find it -- which is why I posted it there04:05
TidersQuan-Time, This uses secuROM04:05
bazhangmarcuy, please chat in #ubuntu-offtopic NOT here04:05
greyfoxsyluxbookmarked thanks ~_^04:05
geitenneukermy wlan card sends with 5w04:05
geitenneukerim afraid, my fingers get hot04:05
blue1greyfoxsylux: you might find other things that help - if not let me know and I can research it04:05
LinuX2halfAny ideas that might help?04:05
marcuyok bazhang04:05
Quan-TimeTiders: found this http://www.ubuntugeek.com/mount-and-unmount-isomdfnrg-images-using-acetoneiso-gui-tool.html - might be an option ??04:06
blue1the info on how to get the apc ups was off and on research for over 6 months04:06
greyfoxsyluxgood to see there are lots of seeders for the Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64 torrent :)04:06
geitenneukerwhat is better, to mount a dir with CIFS or SMBFS?04:06
Quan-TimeTiders: dedicated iso mounting prog.. never know. might "emulate" what you need ? securROM is a retarded idea personally.. (my opinion)04:06
TidersQuan-Time, Too bad the .DEB is no longer available04:06
Quan-TimeTiders: boo... umm.. best i can offer sorry :(04:07
neezercan I go into synaptic and remove the outdated kernels on my machine?04:07
bastid_raZorneezer: yes, that is the proper way of doing it.04:07
Quan-TimeTiders: MDF2ISO is in synaptic.. maybe try that ?04:08
neezerawesome...I was about to do it, but decided to hit cancel and check first.04:08
greyfoxsyluxyeah mdf2iso works04:08
greyfoxsyluxi used it before04:08
blue1how do you remove the old kernels with synaptic, I'd like to do that...04:08
neezerthanks bastid_raZor, if it didn't work, I would have been here asking how to recover after uninstalling old kernels and I bet that could have been a disaster.04:08
greyfoxsyluxis the x64 Adobe Flash Plugin precompiled into a .DEB package?04:08
neezerblue1: search linux-image04:09
greyfoxsyluxor does it need to be built manually?04:09
blue1neezer thanks04:09
neezerblue1: then look for any of the old ones...the one installed with say current version or something like that.04:09
blue1neezer Okay I'll try that when this update finishes thanks04:09
geitenneukergrey: i got my adobe stuff direct from the adobe website, as a a apt source04:09
v0lksmananyone know how to see the current xconfig in karmic?  I know there is no xorg.conf but there must be a way to make settings persist.04:10
neezerIs it ok if I remove 2.6.28-22 if I have a higher number?04:10
blue1heh these flash drives aren't speedy - but it does work04:10
neezerCan I just keep the highest one?04:10
Quan-TimeTiders: http://www.acetoneteam.org/ try that.. might get lucky04:10
bastid_raZorneezer: correct, the latest kernel is all that is required04:11
rwwneezer: If it's the one you're currently using (check with uname -r) and it works fine, yes04:11
blue1neezer: I'd keep the 2 highest cause sometimes you need the old image04:11
TidersQuan-Time, They only have a .DEB for 9.1004:11
neezergreat! thanks04:11
neezersounds like solid advice. thanks04:11
greenlynxv0lksman, i'm having a similar issue xorg stuff04:12
neezerodd...when I run uname -r I get 2.6.28-16, but I know there are higher versions on my list in synaptic.04:12
greenlynxcant answer your problem though, sorry04:12

greenlynxv0lksman, no.  when i had it all set i sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg04:14
greenlynxi assume it rewrote some script somewhere .. ??04:15
pilif12pjerbull: sudo apt-get install apache204:15
v0lksmangreenlynx: I think in karmic that erases xorg.conf if one exists and then lets the new xorg do its thing04:15
jerbullalready have apache dont know how to add files so that they are viewable from the web04:15
chris59Hello,  Help, can't delete directory, it's permiss set to root04:15

pratik_narainhow to install vanilla kde in ubuntu karmic04:17
DiverdudeHello. I need to be able to connect to a cisco vpn server. Does there exist a cisco vpn client for ubuntu which may be installed and used?04:18
greenlynxany idea how to force the hardware to turn off during shutdown?04:18
blakkheim^paradox^: run it from terminal and look for errors04:18
Tm_Tpratik_narain: what you mean by vanilla?04:19
^paradox^whats the command? im not great with the command line04:19
Tm_Tpratik_narain: You can leave kubuntu-default-settings out, rest should be pretty vanilla04:20
chris59sudo rm says cannot remove it's a directory rmdir says It's not empty there are a couple sub dirs any easy command or must do each subdir separately?04:20
pratik_narainTm_T: plain kde as offered by the kde.org team04:20
blakkheimchris59: rm -r04:20
DiverdudeHello. I need to be able to connect to a cisco vpn server. Does there exist a cisco vpn client for ubuntu which may be installed and used?04:20
blakkheim!repeat | Diverdude04:20
ubottuDiverdude: 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.04:20
^paradox^blakkheim: i got a terminal up. how do i run it?04:20
blakkheim^paradox^: i don't use totem so i don't know04:21
pratik_narainTm_T: actually kubuntu kde differs very much from kde in plain distros like arch and gentoo. they provide nearly 100% original kde.04:21
^paradox^i just typed totem and it did the same thing04:22
^paradox^terminal said Segmentation fault04:22
Tm_Tpratik_narain: please be more specific04:22
blakkheim^paradox^: i would recommend something else for music anyway (and for video, not a big fan of totem tbh)04:22
^paradox^ok suggestions?04:23
greenlynxsecond what blakkheim says04:23
Quan-TimeTiders: try "gmount-iso" its in synaptic.. have a looky :)04:23
blakkheim^paradox^: these are just my preferred apps; mplayer for video and mpd+ncmpcpp for music :)04:23
greenlynxmplayer for video04:23
Diverdudeblakkheim, but maybe somebody knows and just didnt see what i wrote04:23
TidersQuan-Time, Thanks what does it do04:23
chris59Thank You again04:24
pratik_narainTm_T: installing kubuntu-desktop includes all the software and configuration from  kubuntu which is unstable on my system. So I want the software selection and default config of ubuntu with kde desktop environment.04:24
TidersQuan-Time, Not in my repos04:24
^paradox^what could have happened to totem? is this gonna be a common thing?04:24
pratik_narainTm_T: I did install kdebase package from synaptic but still I don't have kde option in gdm login screen.04:24
TidersQuan-Time, Will that mount MDFs?04:25
Tm_Tpratik_narain: you have kde-core installed?04:25
greenlynx^paradox^, totem is flaky04:25
greenlynxmy experience04:25
blakkheim^paradox^: just a segfault isn't much to go by, but like i said i would avoid totem anyway04:25
taofdi'm trying to set up ssh on two machines, i successfull ssh-copy-id 'ed one machine, but the other one is giving me a Permission denied (publickey). error... anyone know?04:25

Tm_Tpratik_narain: cannot remember offhand, sorry04:26
pratik_narainTm_T: can you point me to some link please.04:26
^paradox^well i have vlc and mplayer04:27
taofdgreenlynx, ^paradox^ i seconnd that04:28
hackeronhey, I have a movie for RealD/Shutterglasses - there are 2 files: left.avi and right.avi - anyway to play it on ubuntu?04:28
taofd^paradox^, strongly recommend mplayer, never really liked VLC but many others do04:28
taofdhackeron, !medibuntu04:28
blakkheimtaofd: agreed04:28
taofdhackeron, err... hold on  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu04:28
pratik_narain^paradox^: use vlc friend, its simply the best04:29
blakkheim!best | pratik_narain04:29
ubottupratik_narain: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.04:29
hackerontaofd: erm, doesn't have anything to do with 3d movies there?04:29
taofd^paradox^, the main reason why i like mplayer is I find it more efficient than vlc, i'm used to it, and it displays ass subtitles better04:29
=== Nightw0lf is now known as Nightwolf
^paradox^uh theres another problem04:30
pratik_narainits only an opinion04:30
taofdhackeron, oh sorry, i just saw it ended in avi and assumed you needed a video player... lol -__-;04:30
hackerontaofd: no, I have left.avi and right.avi - I need to play both with different polarization to use with 3d glasses04:30
_ganymedeanyone do any game programming? if so, what is the best open source game engine...in your opinion?04:30
^paradox^when i right click on any video and select properties so i can change it to open with another player the folder flashes, disappears, and it opens my home folder04:31
Tm_T_ganymede: please, this is not channel for polls04:31
blakkheim^paradox^: run mplayer filename from the terminal and see if it plays04:31
_ganymede^paradox^: this is not a poll...04:31
isolat3dsh33pbash question: is there any command for numbering system conversion in bash? For example decimal to hexadecimal.04:31
_ganymedewhat is the best open source game engine!04:32
^paradox^i never said it was a poll04:32
taofdhackeron, ah yeah... maybe there's an encoder somewhere that will allow you to merge to video files for stereoscopic 3d playback?04:32
Dr_Willis_ganymede:  depends on  the type of game.04:32
Dr_Willis_ganymede:  and other limitations/features04:32
_ganymede^paradox^: sorry wrong direction...04:32
hackerontaofd: the question is there would I find such encoder? ;)04:33
^paradox^whats the command to run mplayer? just mplayer?04:33
geitenneukerdr_willis are you megaman?04:33

_ganymedeDr_Willis: right...2d and 3d...any good open source game engines? I did a internet search...found a few...but I am unsure of the amount of documentation and such...04:34
taofdanyone know why i would be getting a Permission denied (publickey) error when trying to use ssh-copy-id?04:34
Dr_Willis_ganymede:  2d and 3d.. well that baically means you are doing 3d with a fixed view?04:34

Dr_WillisJp82191:   what video card/chipset? that fact it worked under xp.. shows that at least your cables are connected properly.. and thats about it04:39
neezerwhen I upgrade, I get error messages about installing some packages...It tells me that they weren't ablt to install them.04:39
Dr_WillisDiverdude:  if its source you compile it.. if its binary.. you can proberly run it from the extracted dir.04:39
neezerI think it is cause I have some karmic sources because i was trying to get rhythmbox to talk with my ipod touc.\04:40
Jp82191Dr_Willis, its an integrated laptop card04:40

bastid_raZorneezer: mixing repo's like that is the perfect way to break your system.04:41
isolat3dsh33pcoldfire, if your talking about panel applet, I don't think so. (I might be wrong) But, there's screenlets that can monitor your hardwares. :)04:41
neezerhaha thanks04:41
neezerI was told here two days ago that it probably wouldn't be a problem.04:41
DiverdudeDr_Willis, yeah....but not i just untared it in /home/myusername/vpnclient  I am sure there is a better place to put a program folder than that04:41
DreamDemonJp812191: Do a lspic04:41
DreamDemonJp812191: Do a lspci - previous was a typo04:41
coldfireisolat3dsh33p> ok thx i guess there is'nt any ty 4 the help04:41
Dr_WillisDiverdude:  its all relative.. toss it in /opt/ if you really want to.04:41
neezerbut i'm not too worried about it. I am going to do a fresh install when I get home on monday. with 9.10.04:42
bastid_raZorneezer: then you were given bad advice.04:42
^paradox^ok im ack04:42

Jp82191ok i got a bunch of text what am i looking for04:44
isolat3dsh33p^paradox^, you must be running compiz :/04:44
DreamDemonJp82191: That will tell you all the pci hardware on your machine04:45
Jordan_UJp82191: I think Xubuntu comes with a similar app ( and if not you can install the one that comes with Ubuntu ). Have you checked in the preferences menu?04:45
^paradox^it started a few minutes when totem media player would flash and disappear when i tried to open a song or video04:45
Jp82191jordan_u, there is no preferences menu04:45
^paradox^whats going on. i am running compiz04:45
DreamDemonJp82191: preferences are in System>Preferences04:46

Jp82191trying to use the S-video output04:47
JD1Quan-Time: i think thats it. thanks, I'm running xubuntu and don't have ot04:48
^paradox^is there a way to find out and fix it? i look at properties alot and play media04:48
Quan-TimeJD1: thats the one on my panel.. in gnome.04:48
DreamDemonJp82191: Have you alreadytried plugging it in and seeing if it outputs vid?04:48
Jp82191yes and its not working04:49
Quan-Time^paradox^: try installing VLC via synaptic or apt-get.  open that, and browse to your file, and play.. if that works, its 100% a codec issue :)04:49
JD1Quan-Time: thanks. the xfce one doesn't chart charge and discharge stats04:49
^paradox^i already vlc04:49
Quan-TimeJD1: OH... xfce.. gotcha. (i like openbox personally :)04:49
Quan-Time^paradox^: try playing your media in that.. same problem ?04:49
^paradox^music and video play fine in it04:49
Jp82191codec issue04:50
Quan-Timebingo :)04:50
DreamDemonJp82191: Might be a bug, not sure.  You can try hooking it up and then detecting displays but I think it's going to be more complex then that.04:50
^paradox^no but i still cant click properties without the folder disappearing04:50
Quan-Time^paradox^: so what are you exactly trying to achieve ?04:50
DreamDemonJp82191: I dont have an option for my svid either04:50
JD1Quan-Time: is that still being worked on?04:50
Jp82191yeah ill just use my vista laptop :(04:50
Quan-TimeJD1: MANY ppl with archlinux use it.04:50
JD1Quan-Time: thanks, ill look into it. I'm looking around for the best disto for my asus eee04:51
^paradox^since i cant single left click and open with totem anymore i figured i try right clicking, going to properties, and ticking another to open them with upon a single left click04:51
blakkheimJD1: i run arch on my eeepc :)04:52
^paradox^but upon selecting properties the folder disappears, icons on my desktop disappear, and the home folder pops up04:52
apiggywould someone be able to help me with a boot error on ubuntu04:53
Quan-TimeJD1: oh.. ok. umm.. ubuntu support a EEEpc,, touch pad, battery, etc.. arch is.. "its got the basics to be called "linux".. then you need to constantly add things to make it usable."04:53
ragsagar In my ubuntu 9.04 system I set the resolution to 1024x768 in Preference > Display. But the login screen resolution is still 800x600, any idea guys?04:53
Quan-TimeJD1: you dont even get a gui. you get network, and thats honestly about it.  BUT you only install waht you "need" its uber light, etc.. but its a bit more "pro" to use04:53
_ganymedeapiggy: what is your problem?04:54
isolat3dsh33p^paradox^, have you « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras » ?04:54

ardchoilleLlamaZorz: That would be a bad idea, it's not good to mix release packages like that04:55
LlamaZorzcan you do it04:55
Quan-TimeJD1: for a EEEpc, id suspect ubuntu.. as a daily machine.  mainly cos its got everything you "need", and E's are really well supported04:55
ardchoilleLlamaZorz: No idea, but you'd constantly be fixing problems04:55
DreamDemonLlamaZorz: You can but it's asking for problems in a big way04:56

isolat3dsh33p^paradox^, I mean have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras? It install mp3, mp4, avi codecs, MS fonts etc.04:56
blakkheimLlamaZorz: /etc/apt/sources.list (but yeah it will cause problems)04:56
ardchoilleLlamaZorz: giving advice that causes problems isn't really supported here04:56
^paradox^i dont really know. i can play em04:56
JD1Quan-Time: yep. everything works, just had to add one repo and some one package. I was impressed to see al my fn+ keys working04:57
^paradox^use em04:57
isolat3dsh33pBlue1, it's in the opera download page if I'm not mistaken.04:57
DreamDemonLlamaZorz: I'm not gonna tell someone how to screw themselves over with that option, sorry04:57
Blue1isolat3dsh33p: ah okay it telling me I can't download it - it's not in any repo04:57
LlamaZorzok, we have different politics then.  its ok04:57
DreamDemonLlamaZorz: It's not about politics, it's about you can do 1 thing wrong with it and corrupt your whole install04:58
LlamaZorzok then I reinstall04:58
taofdanyone know why i might be getting a Permission denied (publickey) error message when trying to ssh-copy-id?04:58
LlamaZorznot a big deal04:58
ardchoilleBlue1: you can download opera from their site and it will add thier repo04:58
Blue1ardchoille: ok04:58
ardchoilleBlue1:  http://www.opera.com/browser/download/04:58
isolat3dsh33pBlue1, this « http://deb.opera.com/opera/ » and this « http://deb.opera.com/opera-beta/ »04:59
DreamDemonLlamaZorz: Then your best option is to get the source package and compile it for that given distro04:59
LlamaZorzits not availible thats the problem, somebody uploaded a botched patch file04:59
LlamaZorzon launchpad04:59
JD1Quan-Time: thanks, that was the package. now I just have to wait for it to learn my battery :) takes a awhile with a 10 hour battery life04:59
^paradox^im not good with the more technical stuff. if you want me to check or something you're gonna have to instruct me05:00
etzerdhello all05:00
ardchoilleLlamaZorz: Then you need to compile. But we're not going to sit here and tell you how to destroy your system05:00
LlamaZorzid need to run debian if I wanted the patch to work properly05:01
joshua__destroying your system is easy.05:01

jukebox-zeroI have kinda an odd, newbie-like question. I'm using Grub2 from the debian sid repo, which gives me a new dpkg option if I shutdown without halting to attempt to fix any broken packages. If I choose this option, it wants to install my held back packages. Is this something I do,or do not want to do? I would just go for it but there's a kernel image in there and that makes me hesitate.05:09

ashepherdsonHello, I have been using Ubuntu for about a year, and I just recently upgraded to 9.10, however my video card went wild after the upgrade.  I am only able to use it on Low graphics mode, and I cannot seem to get it to boot into the graphical enviroment, even using the install hardware drivers feature, any help would be appreciated, I will give any info required on my machine as well05:11
blakkheimESphynx: oh. install imagemagick and run convert file.png file.svg05:11
jukebox-zeroblakkheim, well, lemme rephrase it then. Is there a reason apt-get and synaptic hold back packages? Is that proper? Or will installing held back packages break my ubuntu? That's why I chose this chan. Also asking on #linux/05:12
blakkheimashepherdson: let me guess, you have an ati card?05:12
ESphynxhmm ok, thanks. but I was hoping to know why that is? if something changed or what?05:12
hackeranyone can help me???05:12
kinja-sheepetzerd: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. :-)05:12

LlamaZorzhacker: drag the file into the window?  If this doesn't work then the sendee is not capable of receiving05:13
hackermy pidgim cannot tranfer data..........05:13
hackerhow can i do??05:13
Quan-Timejukebox-zero: it WONT "break".. its a copyright issue. by adding extra repositories, you do so at your own risk. its fine to do, BUT its like a disclaimer / EULA05:13
tritiumhacker: please quit repeating05:13
ashepherdsonI followed many online guides and cant seem to get it, 9.04 had similar issues, but I eventually figured it out.05:13
ESphynxhacker, what do you mean by transfer data... Send files?05:13
kinja-sheepjukebox-zero: What packages are being held?05:13
Quan-Timehacker: ok.. who are you trying to transfer to.. another pidgin user05:13
Quan-Time?? or a MSN user ?05:13
ESphynxyahoo messenger?05:13

Quan-Timehacker: umm.. thats your problem.. yahoo (and sometimes MSN) are inherently retarded about WHO can send and recieeve.. you can recieve fine, but sending, they often break it, to try and force you to use the "yahoo" client.05:15
ESphynxhacker, try a real Pidgeon... print out the file and roll it up nicely and attach it under it05:15
ashepherdsonblakkheim:  So there is nothing I can do?  Should I just downgrade to 9.04 as it worked perfectly there after some tweaking.05:15
jukebox-zerokinja-sheep, one moment, let me go check that box.05:15

ashepherdsonHello, anybody at all, ATI driver install on 9.10, I need serious help with this!  and yes I realize getting a new graphics card is the best idea, however that is simply not in the cards at the moment.05:20

SerraphynHello guys, I been really considering finally taking the linux plung, I've worked with PCs for 15ish years but mostly in the windows sector with a  few dabbles in linux as a server.  What I would like to do is have a linux version that is geared more towards the beginning programmer in things like java(I know things like PERL and php already) Is Ubuntu such a distro?05:24
brianherman_homerussianzilla: clear your tmp directory05:24
jukebox-zerokinja-sheep, so in short, I don't really get anything out of it, positive or negative? Aside from whatever minor changes are from package to package?05:24
MJ94_DreamDemon: michael@ubuntu:~$ ifconfig wlan0 wlan0: error fetching interface information: Device not found michael@ubuntu:~$05:24
ESphynxhow do I mount a Windows share in Ubuntu? I see the way to do Connect To Server, but that only makes it accessible through smb:// does it ?05:24
=== robert__ is now known as Warp4
blakkheimSerraphyn: the distro really isn't going to matter for something like that, anything will be fine05:24
FiReSTaRTSerraphyn: while ubuntu is geared more towards just working out of the box, it has all the right tools for it05:25
blakkheimESphynx: type "mount" in terminal to see where it's actually mounted05:25
ESphynxblakkheim, ah right, tahnks05:25
edbianSerraphyn, Ubuntu is beginner oriented but not really developer oriented.  Although installing the software for different languages is easy.05:25
MJ94_DreamDemon: any ideas?05:25
FiReSTaRTSerraphyn: that's where you're not gonna find much of a difference between various distros.. just get a major one that suits your personal style and it'll have all of the tools :)05:25
kinja-sheepjukebox-zero: Nothing major except the kernel. You'll be using a new kernel and if anything break, go back to the older kernel at BOOTUP.05:25
kinja-sheep!linux | jukebox-zero05:25
ubottujukebox-zero: Linux is the kernel (core) of the Ubuntu operating system. Many operating systems use Linux as a kernel. For more information on Linux in general, visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux05:25
DreamDemonMJ94: Sounds like your in either restricted driver mode or it isnt loaded at all.  Check the wifi how-to page05:26

MJ94_Serraphyn: :)05:28
MJ94_I loike Ubuntu already!05:28
kinja-sheepjukebox-zero: From what I read, it holds back because of new kernel and new dependencies packages. That is why it is occuring.05:28

kinja-sheep!info synergy | Serraphyn05:28

edbianFlootenkerp, If you edit /etc/resolv.conf add "nameserver <someIp>" to the end.  You should see a couple other's there.  You can also configure your router to use a certain DNS.  And you can tell the system to use a different DNS server than what DHCP gives it.05:33

edbianFlootenkerp, Your router has an IP for it's domain name servers (probably got it from your ISP).  It gives that DNS server to the DHCP clients on its network.05:35

edbianFlootenkerp, You need to find the line "#prepend domain-name-servers" uncomment it by removing the # and change to the ip you want to use.  Then if you reboot or restart networking you will get your dns server from that line, then whatever is added by the dhcp server (router)  do you understand?05:40

kinja-sheepMJ94_: "sudo updatedb && locate neti2220.inf" -- It say what?06:24
LinuX2halfokay, Gparted sound like a good idea but how do I manage to resize the partition when the hard drive is still mounted?06:24
ouyesunr3a1,  yep it is  a little intricate to me06:24
MJ94_kinja-sheep: i type it, it says nothing06:25
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Where did you extract the files to?06:25
unr3a1ouyes, what do you mean?06:25
mezquitaleLinuX2half, only "/" cannot be unmounted, anything else you should be able to unmount or use a live cd with gparted06:25
MJ94_kinja-sheep: michael@ubuntu:~$ sudo updatedb && locate neti2220.inf /home/michael/Desktop/neti2220.inf06:26
LinuX2halfLive CD, you mean I just pop the CD in and the computer will automatically boot the CD?06:26
Diverdudei have really sometimes been wondering why people want to make free software (opensource) when nobody wants to make for example free craftmanwork or free economic counseling or whatever. Why is it actually fair that the products softwaredevelopers produce should be free, when the product other jobtypes produce should not?06:26
kinja-sheepMJ94_: "sudo ndiswrapper -i /home/michael/Desktop/neti2220.inf"06:26
bizarrefishLinuX2half: LinuX2half indeed06:26
LinuX2halfhm..? Well that process doesn't work with my "laptop" though.06:27
MJ94_kinja-sheep: michael@ubuntu:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -i /home/michael/Desktop/neti2220.inf installing neti2220 ... michael@ubuntu:~$06:27
ouyesunr3a1,  i mean the pay back course is a little complex06:27
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Done. Try and reboot.06:27
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Come back here.06:27
SnausagesLinuX2half: yeah pretty much.  You may need to encourage your machine to do that with a key on startup or a bios setting change (or virtual machine setup change)06:27
LinuX2halfIt doesn't boot from the CD when I "pop" it in and it never held an indication of what to press.06:27
bizarrefishDiverdude: probably because things like carpentry cost money to duplicate.06:27
ouyesunr3a1,  but the machine worth that much06:28
SnausagesLinuX2half: try the common ones- esc, F2, F10...06:28
mezquitaleLinuX2half, yes, the ubuntu cd should have gparted06:28
MJ94_kinja-sheep: reboot?06:28
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Yes06:28
bizarrefishDiverdude: i wouldn't say that s/w developers products 'should' be free, that's the choice of the developer.06:28
MJ94_then, ill connect and remove the ethernet06:28
ESphynxany idea why I won't have any sound with my Audigy 2?06:29
Jordan_UDiverdude: There are a lot of volunteers in other feilds, it's just hard to mass produce physical products at no cost ( also many Free software developers are paid ). Please move this to #ubuntu-offtopic though06:29
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Don't remove the ethernet. Just take a look at top-right and see if your Wifi SSID come up.06:29
bizarrefishthere is another school of thought, though, that says that software is knowledge, and should be free.06:29
SnausagesLinuX2half: in many of them, f10 allows interactive choice of boot device.  f2 lets you change bios settings to check or change default boot device order of attempt06:29
LinuX2halfOh okay, the common keys. Yes, does it matter with I'm using a 8.10 Live CD and I'm running Karmic?06:29
Diverdudebizarrefish, well it only costs money to duplicate because work is needed and materials takes work to produce....But software also takes work to produce06:29
unr3a1ouyes, oh alright06:29
zong-qihi anyone know how to get usb mobile modems working on 9.04 or 9.10 ? I had to reload windohs to use the internet and I dont like xp much Ive googled the issues but mostly Idont understand the forums, I need to save some .deb file somewhere with root privilages, its a bit confusing to me06:29
unr3a1ouyes, it doesn't bother me.06:29

pattabii tried to install netbeans 6.7.sh with sh command. but it cant open the file. help me06:29
SnausagesLinuX2half: not terribly, this is mostly about the BIOS maker/revision in your pc06:29
Dr_WillisI have a lot of old softweare for old pc's and other comptuiers - since the code was not open sourced.. the stuff is basically useless now.  all that 'work' gond.06:29
LinuX2halfGreat, now I know what keys is which.06:30
SnausagesLinuX2half: if there is any BIOS splashscreen, you can look it up by name and get a better educated guess of boot select hotkeys06:30
ouyesunr3a1,  i7 have a great performance among all CPUS06:30
bizarrefishDiverdude: yes, but once it's produced, it doesn't cost money to replicate. whilst any other product needs the same cost for every item sold. Software has O(1) cost while normal stuff has O(n) cost06:30
Bilawbizarrefish: cheers! RE this absence of eth0, I found this. Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 1692 (rev 01). Errr. Is there a specific site where I should locate the driver, or… ?06:30
SnausagesLinuX2half: then you can get started from the livecd which could allow you to run gparted and modify / on your HDD06:30
bullgardSynaptic: "Totem is a simple yet featureful media player for GNOME." How can this program be "simple" and at the same time featureful? What Ubuntu competes with Totem and is not "simple"?06:31

LinuX2halfHot keys? Should I just google; hotkeys for VAIO BIOS?06:31
SnausagesLinuX2half: maybe google around, sony probably publishes this info06:31
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Meh?06:32
unr3a1ouyes, yea they do.  its only a 920, but it works for me06:32

Dr_Williseltume:  im not sure it does. vlc tends to have all teh codecs and things built in.06:33
Diverdudebizarrefish, well i do not agree...software needs to be maintained06:33
Bilawbizarrefish: ouch, was that smiley addressed to me (suggesting : “good luck, mate, youre in for a tough one“)??06:33
LinuX2halfYes, the company did post the information online. It stated that F2 - enter BIOS setup, F10 -saves/exits BIOS setup06:34
LinuX2halfF9 - load default config.06:34
MJ94_kinja-sheep: poke06:34
Ben^I'm trying to configure grub (device.map) to be able to boot without hardcoding BIOS device paths.. i.e using UUID's - is this possible ?06:34
* kinja-sheep evade a poke06:35
* Dr_Willis wishes these bios makers could come up with some standard on what keys should do what.06:35
kinja-sheepMJ94_: How goes the card?06:35
SnausagesDr_Willis: I think they almost have to differentiate just to avoid patent claims06:35
MJ94_how can I find out?06:35
bizarrefishDr_Willis: tis what OFW is for :P06:35
bizarrefisha common way to do everything06:36
LinuX2halfOkay, the menu is more sophisticated than my BIOS setup06:36
Diverdudebizarrefish, so no answer for that i guess?06:36
Dr_WillisBen^:  im pretty sure the device.map cant use uuids like that.06:36
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Look at Network Icon. Click on it. Select your Wifi.06:36
bizarrefishDiverdude: oh, sorry, i didnt notice your reply06:36
LinuX2halfIt didn't tell me a breath of what keys to press to "boot from the CD"06:36
bizarrefishSoftware doesnt NEED to be maintained. it depends on the software.06:36
Ben^Dr_Willis - hmm.. I have a problem that if I leave my eSata drive plugged in on boot, all my drives shuffle up by one. I.e sda becomes sdb, sbc -> sdc, etc.  Causes me problems booting06:37
LinuX2halfSome people get the message "Press any key to boot from disc"06:37
Ben^Dr_Willis, obviously grub looks in the wrong place and cant find by root partition06:37
LinuX2halfAnd this occurrence affects a wide variety of "laptops"06:37
bizarrefishDiverdude: also, you are pushing against an open door here, i don't think software 'should' be free. some people do, i'm not one of them06:38
Jordan_UBen^: grub uses UUIDs by default06:38
Ben^Jordan_U, not in Karmic?06:38
Jordan_UBen^: Yes, in karmic06:38
Ben^Jordan_U, if that were the case I wouldn't be havin this problem06:38
Dr_WillisBen^:  with my system - whatever drive i tell teh bios to boot. becomes sda.   but i have no esata drives.06:38
kinja-sheepVanity and corruption rising in the world. :'(06:38
Jordan_UBen^: What problem?06:38
bizarrefishI just know any software i develop will be free.06:38
SnausagesBen^: can you change where the headers plug into your motherboard?06:38
Diverdudebizarrefish, ohh okay hehe :) I mean...i would like to pay for linux....i just use it because its a hell of a lot better than windows....06:38
MJ94_kinja-sheep: http://tinypic.com/r/b7zaxc/606:38
bizarrefishmy angle is that Open source development works a hell of a lot better at ironing out bugs(if done properly) than the alternative06:39
Ben^Jordan_U, if I leave my eSata plugged in, it slots in before my other disks in the bios boot order, causing all my device mappings to become invalid06:39
DaZDiverdude: and how long do you use it? <:06:39
Ben^Jordan_U, i.e my eSata becomes sda, and the old sda is now sdb. etc.06:40
kinja-sheepMJ94_: I dislike the TinyPic's Images You'll Also Enjoy. I'm talking about the icon left of "Email" Icon on top-right.06:40
DiverdudeDaZ, well not that long...a few months only06:40
LinuX2halfI mean Sony VGN series does boot from disc but I'm not too certain if Karmic comes along and ruins the whole pat06:40
SnausagesBen^: the esata interface- is that a pass-through cable to the motherboard, or is it on a host bus adapter?06:40
DaZBen^: so setup uuids in grub.06:40
DiverdudeDaZ, why is that an issue?06:40
Jordan_UBen^: So what happens when you try to boot with grub?06:40
Jordan_UBen^: That shouldn't be a problem06:40
MJ94_kinja-sheep: all i see is wired06:40
Ben^it fails dumps me into busybox06:40
Jordan_UBen^: Can you pastebin your /boot/grub/grub.cfg?06:41
Ben^DaZ I've been trying, as far as I can see, only grub2 supports UUID's in device.map06:41
bullgardSynaptic: "Totem is a simple yet featureful media player for GNOME." How can this program be "simple" and at the same time featureful? What Ubuntu competes with Totem and is not "simple"?06:41
LinuX2halfWait, I want to install windows but the setup procedure said that it can't find a valid partition. What does that mean?06:41
DaZDiverdude: after a few years you will not love it so much :306:41
kinja-sheepMJ94_: What does "ndiswrapper -l" list?06:41
ZackraaI forget how to add a server06:41
Zackraaor at least connect to one06:41
LinuX2halfDoes it mean that it can't cope with ext3..?06:42
Jordan_UBen^: You don't want to edit device.map06:42
MJ94_kinja-sheep: neti2220 : driver installed device (17FE:2220) present06:42
Jordan_UBen^: It won't help you in any way06:42
LinuX2halfSure, NTFS is the original partition for windows but whats the difference between ext3 and NTFS?06:42
c_nickUbuntu 9.10 just wont run on my pc.. if i say in safe graphics mode to try without installing it just hangs06:43
Ben^Jordan_U, pastebin as requested: http://pastebin.com/d4228f4ea06:43

c_nickI got a P4 1 gb ram06:43
zetherooI downloaded a program called vtigercrm for Linux and its ended up being a .bin file ... what do I do with it to make it run in Ubuntu? When I double click it I get this error: Could not display "/home/zeth/Downloads/vtigercrm-5.1.0.bin". The file is of an unknown type.06:43
MJ94_kinja-sheep: neti2220 : driver installed device (17FE:2220) present06:43
Ben^Jordan_U, device.map is what translates bios devices to kernel devices. Its been the fix so far, albeit manual06:43
halberdI just installed a wireless driver and the interface shows up on ifconfig but I can't do ifup or iwlist scan06:43
halberdwhat might possibly be the problem?06:43
c_nickif i check the cd it says kernal problem.. something restarting the system06:43
halberdit used to be working before I updated from 9.04 to 9.1006:43
DaZBen^: so you're having problem with the grub (hdx,y) thingie?06:43
ouyesunr3a1,  i plan to buy a laptop as intel launched the 32nm cpu ,but when i see your situation, i hizatate06:44
Ben^DaZ Yep, as my bios devices tend to be rather fluid06:44
Jordan_UBen^: Never seen /etc/grub.d/10_lupin before, can you pastebin it? ( I assume you installed via wubi? )06:44
DaZlolwut [;06:44
ouyesunr3a1,  sorry my poor english06:44
Ben^Jordan_U, I did yeah,06:44
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Meh. Does "sudo lshw -c network" say the same thing?06:44
ouyesi am still trying hard to learn EN'06:45
Ben^Jordan_U, I've been lookin at that lupin thing too. Everything I find seems to point that it should be using UUID's (excluding device.map), but as you can see in the grub.cfg, hard device paths are references06:45
unr3a1ouyes, what do you mean "your situation"?  You think the i7 is worse than 32nm cpu?06:45
Ben^Jordan_U, *referenced.06:45
Jordan_UBen^: You should file a bug against lupin/wubis that they don't use UUIDs06:45
ZackraaI forget how to add a server06:45
MJ94_kinja-sheep: http://pastebin.com/m3b645b4506:45
Ben^Jordan_U, lupin: http://pastebin.com/d165b00e506:45
ouyesunr3a1,  of course not, i mean it is not easy to earn a material based living06:46
Ben^Jordan_U, I'm not sure it's a bug, more a symptom of the setup. grub has to be able to ref. the host ntfs filesystem before it can even get to any of the other config. Hence the need for the lower level mapping to be right06:47
MJ94_kinja-sheep: http://pastebin.com/m3b645b4506:47
Ben^Hmm actually thats a point. There must be some grub config on the ntfs fs06:47
bubba1hi would someone please help me with ubuntu 9.10 that wont boot06:47

Ben^Jordan_U, fo' sho. vi me up06:48
ouyesunr3a1,  what system did you install to your PC06:49
MJ94_kinja-sheep: so did it work?06:49
halberdvi me up, scotty06:49
unr3a1Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7 64-bit dual-boot06:49
unr3a1ouyes, but I much prefer linux06:49
Jordan_UBen^: You can work around this problem by adding a new line after line 62 with "LINUX_HOST_DEVICE=UUID=aef8aa18-ae9f-4860-98f9-7fe239959d4c" ( with your actual UUID of course )06:49

Ben^Jordan_U, lookin...06:50
DaZgrub2 is too complex >:06:50
MJ94_kinja-sheep: should i pull my ethernet and check?06:50
josephnexushi everyone, i've got a logitech g15 keyboard, and it seems to be working great, except I can't  use the g keys (g1-g6)  I turn on g15macro, and go to keyboard shortcuts in gnome and it recognizes it when I try to bind it, but it doesn't work when trying to use it after binding it06:50
kinja-sheepMJ94_: You say you only see Wired, but no Wifi?06:50
c_nickhey guys can you tell me why U9.10 wont work on a P406:50
Jordan_UDaZ: Actually in this case grub legacy would do the same thing, you just would have to edit C code to fix it :)06:51
Ben^Jordan_U, override the conditional block & hardcode the UUID. hrmm yuk.. spose its a solution :) Not very pythonic tho :P06:51
Dr_Willisjosephnexus:  i was thinking theres some special tools/pacakges to install to make full use of that keyboard. I got one. but its not hooked up right now.06:51
ouyesunr3a1,  linux will cost you a lot of time to learn how to use but it does worth the time, use linux, get away from virus and free software06:51

Jordan_UDaZ: editing C and recompiling is simpler than editing a shell script?06:52
Ben^Jordan_U, wonder why the block failts to pick up a UUID. Might have a play with grub-probe06:52

Dr_Williszetheroo:  depends on what it is... normally  you 'run' it if its a executable/installer06:54
Ben^Jordan_U, Hmm.. Spose I could... I have a patch to properly show debtorrent apt sources in software sources (software-properties-gtk) too, might submit at same time06:54

aliendude5300zetheroo, no.06:56
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Meh. Try "killall nm-applet && sleep 2 && nm-applet"06:56
Jordan_UBen^: Could you add set -x at the top of that script and pastebin the output from update-grub?06:56
unr3a1ouyes, sorry.  had to fix something06:56
aliendude5300zetheroo, once the executable byte is set you can just double click06:56
Ben^Jordan_U, think I sussed it, posting update grub.cfg06:56
zetherooaliendude5300: ah ok .. thanks06:56
philyawcan i make my windows button pull up the ubuntu menu06:56
ouyesunr3a1,  it doesn't matter06:56
aliendude5300zetheroo, technically you don't need the terminal AT ALL, not even to set it as executable, but it's _faster_ that way.06:56

aliendude5300zetheroo, yeah... my guess is it's a terminal app to install vtiger so it can be run from within a web browser. CMS apps are typically for webservers.06:59
MJ94_kinja-sheep: http://pastebin.com/m9eab25206:59
DaZi see.06:59
aliendude5300You probably need a LAMP server pre-installed to use that.06:59
ouyesbe careful the firefox is a dangerous application under ubuntu in some types of laptop07:00
aliendude5300if you don't have a lamp server installed, I'd try running sudo tasksel and checking LAMP Server.07:00
MJ94_kinja-sheep: http://pastebin.com/m9eab25207:00
aliendude5300That might be needed for the backend of the server application.07:00
MJ94_idk what to do now07:00
FedereorToo funny video --> http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/llama07:00
Jordan_UBen^: Actually, it didn't need them since the initial value of $root is set with the drive grub loaded from, so it shouldn't be affected by drive order changing07:00
ouyesDaZ,  you dont use it why you here?07:01
Jordan_UBen^: linux does still need UUIDs though07:01
ouyesDaZ,  to learn to use it as planed ?07:01
DaZouyes: to spread windows propaganda.07:01
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Oh, run "nm-applet &" -- You CTRL+C to kill it off.07:01
Ben^Jordan_U, yeah. those set root lines should be able to be modded to be set root=UUID=2837423482 though I believe07:01
kinja-sheepMJ94_: Still no wireless? :<07:01
ubottuHere I am, brain the size of a planet and you expect me to respond to a ping? How depressing.07:02
ouyesDaZ,  YOU KIDDING ME?07:02
MJ94_kinja-sheep: I have to go -we hafta hurry07:02
Jordan_UBen^: The first set root=(hdX,X) is for backword compatability with previous versions of grub that didn't support search by UUID07:02
DaZouyes: never.07:02
kinja-sheepMJ94_: I tried what I can. You want to try terminal?07:02

kinja-sheepMJ94_: Try "sudo ifdown wlan0 && sudo ifup wlan0"  (if it exists)07:04
aliendude5300zetheroo, yeah, that application is intended for web servers, to be used through a browser. You need apache installed.07:04

zetherooaliendude5300: right ... well it asks if I want to install apache that is in the vtiger package and I say yes and then it asks me this07:05

user101DaZ: you are hybrid07:05
MJ94_kinja-sheep: ok07:05
aliendude5300zetheroo, don't install it from the vtiger package. It's a MUCH better idea to do it through the Ubuntu repositories.07:05
aliendude5300zetheroo, I can help you set up a LAMP server for vtiger -- it's really easy.07:06
jtoftzetheroo: save yourself misery and install nginx + rails or nginx + pylons.07:06
zetherooaliendude5300: so I should quit this installer then?07:06
aliendude5300Yeah -- quit it with Ctrl-C07:06
Ben^Jordan_U, Actually, that 10_lupid script I pastebin'd doesn't really correspond to the bash.cfg that I generated. strange.07:06
zetheroojtoft: english please ... :)07:06
zetherooaliendude5300: done07:07
jtoftzetheroo: don't install LAMP, unless you want a miserable life.07:07

BlueMoooondevunt // I can't see07:08
aliendude5300zetheroo, type your password when asked (if you didn't recently become root) then when a menu appears -- scroll down to LAMP server and check that. Do not uncheck anything else that is already checked.07:08
BlueMoooonI only see ???07:08
aliendude5300jtoft, he07:08
Jordan_UBen^: /etc/grub.d/10_lupin07:08
jtoftzetheroo: look at nginx for a reverse proxy to either rails (mongrel_cluster) or pylons (paster cluster)07:08
devuntDaZ // yes. I can speak 하하하하하07:08
jtoftzetheroo: use a decent language, php is terrible.07:08
aliendude5300jtoft, he is trying to install a web application that needs a server backend with MySQL, Apache and PHP.07:08
jtoftaliendude5300: oh, was thinking he was programming.07:09
jtoftaliendude5300: nevermind then, have fun with whatever you're doing.07:09
aliendude5300jtoft, no, that would be much more work.07:09
Ben^Jordan_U, whats the -x ?07:09
zetheroo aliendude5300: ok I am going ahead with your input then ... hang on07:09
Jordan_UBen^: Sends every command the script runs to stderr07:09
Ben^Jordan_U, lol nm, worked that one out07:09
ouyesunr3a1,  see my thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=137658307:10
aliendude5300zetheroo, anyways, only check LAMP server -- with the space bar -- don't uncheck anything else, or you might accidentally remove your desktop environment or something like the ability to print. That would be bad.07:10
aliendude5300Once done selecting LAMP server, hit tab, and hit enter on OK.07:10

gnomadi just installed xubuntu 9.10 and am having trouble booting windows now with grub 2. all i get when i select win xp is: GRUB _ . does anyone know a fix for this?09:08
Mehrani downloaded my Driver card from ubuntu forum09:08
gnomadi've never had trouble with grub leg./other distros09:09
ardchoilleMehran: If you're not using Ubuntu, then you need to go to another channel for support09:09
hatake_kakashiMehran, your main distro is not ubuntu, if you're going to continue persuing for support in another different channel, you're going to face consequences against the ops09:09
Mehranhmm i also have ubuntu but same problem .09:10
mmanuhi, i am at a linux lab and i have messed up my home folder...is there a way to erase all of my data in the home folder and start anew?09:10
mneptokmmanu: rm -r ~/*  <---- do NOT run this command unless you want to completely erase the contents of your home directory09:11
ouyesgnomad,  go into ubuntu mount the window partition change the boot.int fiel09:11
Mehrancan tell me what is driver for WUGSB54GC v3 ?09:12

ouyesgnomad,  show09:13
mneptokmmanu: rm -rf ~/*  <---- do NOT run this command unless you want to completely erase the contents of your home directory, including subdirectories09:13
Dr_Willispetsounds:  i just plug mine in and set the pc;s to use dhcp. (*the default normally) and they all work09:13
ouyespetsounds,  if you use the ppoe , you need to do some settings to the router09:14
gnomadall it says is: GRUB_ ... blank screen i have to harb reboot09:14
petsoundsDr_Willis, my router is JKnetworks i open Gnome NM and i tick enable networking but i still can't connect to the internet09:14
theodorehello there09:15
mneptokpetsounds: router, or modem?09:15
Dr_Willispetsounds:  you proberluy need to tell the channel more specific details.09:15
petsoundsouyes, i think it use pppoe09:15
theodorewhat is mcopidl?09:15
gnomader ctrl-alt-del rather09:15
mneptokpetsounds: a router usually does not use PPPoE. a modem may require it.09:15
petsoundsmneptok, for adsl.. router?09:15
mneptokpetsounds: that's a modem09:16
theodoreI do ./configure for kontrollerlab...and I get  "error: The important program mcopidl was not found!"09:16
ouyespetsounds,  then at least you have an account  and a  password09:16
theodoreI use ubuntu gnome 9.10 updated...09:16
ardchoilletheodore: sounds like you're missing a dependency09:16
ouyespetsounds,  you need to see your router's instruction book09:16
mneptokpetsounds: how many CAT5 (Ethernet) ports in the back?09:16
theodoreahaa...and what do I do?09:16
theodoregoogle says that depends on kde artwork...09:17
petsoundsmneptok, ouyes Dr_Willis in the bac of cpu? just one09:17
gnomadubuntu starts up fine.. i can even manually specify recovery partition and chainload that but i chose my xp partition and blank screen: GRUB__09:17
mneptokpetsounds: in the back of the JKnetworks device09:17
ouyespetsounds,  mine is simply type in the browser input  admin  admin into router settings09:18
petsoundsmneptok, it has one ethernet, and one usb09:18
mneptokpetsounds: that's not a router, it's a modem. and using ADSL almost certainly means you need to authenticate using PPPoE09:18
mneptokpetsounds: do you know the username/password for PPPoE given to you by your ISP?09:19
petsoundsmneptok, ouyes yes i know the password09:19
Parabolagnomad, you could try a fixboot/mbr from xp recovery, then resetup grub09:19

ardchoillezetheroo: www-data is the user by which all files on the server will be owned and created10:00
rwwzetheroo: 750 is read, write, and executable (openable in the case of directories) by user, readable and openable by group, not accessable by others10:00
jtajizetheroo: www-data is the user which apache runs as10:00
rwwzetheroo: 640 is the same except with no execute permission10:00
zetheroook ... thanks10:01
rwwzetheroo: the first find command changes all directories under vtigercrm/ to 750, the second changes all files to 64010:01

nick125taofd: Are you trying to limit the bandwidth usage? i.e., limit XYZ to 500Kbit/s11:00
nick125taofd: If so, look into trickle or wondershaper.11:01
taofdnick125, yeah11:02
taofdnick125, i'll look into both, thanks :)11:02
taofdnick125, do you personally have a preference between the two?11:03
nick125taofd: It depends on what you're trying to do. trickle requires a wrapper script be ran around the programs while wondershaper (and the underlying tools it uses) works at a system-level.11:04
taofdnick125, sounds like wondershaper is what i need then :) thanks11:05
nick125taofd: If wondershaper doesn't work, look into the underlying program that it uses, tc.11:05

nick125taofd: What kind of limit is it? Is it a cap on usage (i.e., 5GB in XYZ period) or on utilization (i.e., you're allowed 500Kbit 95% avg'ed)?11:09
taofdnick125, the limits are a bit nebulous... but I do know they will block users if traffic gets too high11:10

paissadnick125, yes12:14
paissadmonokrome, nick125 the server is running on http:paissad.homelinux:1800012:14

paissadmonokrome, http://paissad.homelinux.com:1800/mpd.ogg12:16
paissadmonokrome, sorry, port 18000 instead12:16
monokromepaissad: Ah! I thought that 18000 sounded a bit high :)12:16
llutzDaughain: won't matter, best something like /etc/init.d/bootpd12:16
monokromeStill doesn't work, though.12:16
paissadmonokrome, you think that the port number is high ?12:16
llutzDaughain: so the name makes clear what is is for12:16
monokromepaissad: Only when you accidetally said 18000 :)12:16
Daughainllutz; Cool.....So, I can create it in gedit and save to init.d/?12:17
llutzDaughain: yes, but you need root-rights (gksudo gedit) to save it there12:17
monokromepaissad: You have at least 3 options. 1) You can create a site that links to or plays http://paissad.homelinux.com:1800/mpd.ogg 2) You can use Apache + mod_proxy to forward requests to localhost:1800 3) You can change the IceCast server to run on port 80, if you aren't wanting to use Apache for anything else.12:18
nick125paissad: But yeah, check into mod_proxy. Icecast appears that it can be proxied, so try that. That way, it'll go through Apache.12:18
Daughaingksudo?  Usualy sudo gedit works for me....Is there a reason for the gksudo?12:18
monokromenick125: Can't all HTTP servers be proxied?...12:18
=== biggimat is now known as Matic`Makovec
paissadmonokrome, nick125 i just don't know anything about proxy :s ...12:18
llutzDaughain: don't use sudo with gui-apps, it may cause problems12:19
monokromepaissad: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_proxy.html12:19
paissadmonokrome, nick125 i heard about squid, tor, but that 's all :D12:19
nick125monokrome: Some servers might break behind a proxy12:19
enzotib!gksu | Daughain12:19
Daughainllutz; gksudo denotes that I am calling a gui app?12:19
ubottuDaughain: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)12:19
llutzDaughain: it sets correct environment, thats the difference12:19
* Daughain nods..12:20
Daughainllutz; Thanks, and lemme try this. =)12:20
nick125paissad: In this case, proxying means that Icecast requests will be "proxied" or ran through Apache12:20
exodusssup ?12:20
Daughainllutz; I may be back with more questions shortly. =)12:21
paissadnick125, i definitely don't want to use port 80 or 443, i already use them for other stuffs :)12:21
monokromepaissad: With mod_proxy, you can tell apache to send specific URLs to another port and then display the results - so all of your other stuff wont be hurt when you use port 80.12:21

Aled-XubuntuIt's a feature Firefox in Windows has, which I like a lot13:07
Xserverthen middle click scrolling should work ... but i haven't really tried13:08

XserverAled : Use Jerky Firefox Scrolling13:08
isolat3dsh33pAled-Xubuntu, you don't have to middle click to scroll in Firefox, just scroll the middle button. Unless you want to strict it to scroll only after middle click, I'm not sure then. :)13:08
