Pelonighteagle, try this,  check in your /home folder for a hiden folder for empathy,  look for a .conf file , you might be able to change it in there00:09
nighteagleinitmass, what's the version in the repositories?00:09
yeasongreg__: when you set it up did you uncheck "use authentication"?00:09

nighteagleinitmass, i think that the better to do, is to wait that they'll be available, on the repo.00:12
yeasongreg__: I understand, I'm trying to think of what might be causing the problem and what you can do to fix it. When you connect have you tried using instead of localhost, I've seen this make or break some things00:12
initmassundecim, I've been there but it seems like it's the whole Koffice suite. I only want Krita 200:13

undecimJarxes: Usually, on a real system (i.e. not a livecd), there will be subfolders inside of /mnt/ if you mount media manually a lot, but since it's not really used by anything else, it's really convenient to just use directly when you need a quick chroot. I think the Ubuntu installer even uses it to mount the drive it is installing to.00:16

yeasongreg__: ok, just double checking that you'd given both a shot. I'm not sure that it will do much but I'd try enabling it, see if you can connect at all using the username and password you enter. If that works try disabling it again and see if it works then.

annodominiI'm having a problem where my network (wireless) stops working after about a minute. I see a line in the syslog from wpa_supplicant about CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS, so I suspect it may be a variation of this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/46088600:52
undecimJarxes: Oh, you are still trying to chroot? If /dev/sdb7 is the partition which has your /usr/ files, you need to mount it with "sudo mount /dev/sdb7 /mnt/usr"00:52
tripzeroeric_3: probably00:52

Picihari_: one moment00:57
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo00:57
ubottuSamba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.00:57

Jarxesundecim: ok, I got some "bash: groups: command not found" but other than that I'm on "root@ubuntu:/#". Now what? Will it run properly it I simply restart the machine now or do I need to run the "grub-update", or something else?01:02
Ostlian_Bryffelkdullard, undecim: Hmm, proc, /sys, varrun and varlock has "noexec". Is that good?01:02
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: yeah.01:02
zioplaslti think i cant reach synaptic, or maybe i dont know how. I guess maybe something is wrong with xorg or graphics card drivers01:02
toastedmilkzioplaslt, yeah you'd have to use aptitude to reinstall the dependencies01:03

quietonechasedawg1: which program are you using?01:06
melvincvany system restore program in ubuntu?01:06
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: I say just try reinstalling each of your packages, because it seems that some important file got nixed when you ran out of space.01:07
toastedmilkmelvincv, no.01:07
toastedmilkmelvincv, you have to use the terminal01:07
chasedawg1quietone: rhythmbox01:07
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: "sudo aptitude reinstall '~i'".  should do that.01:07
melvincvk, how do u restore using the terminal?01:07
Picihari_: You need to be exact when typing the command. Spacing is important.   sudo cp /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.O /etc/cups/cupsd.conf       thats a capital O, not a 0 also.01:08
Ostlian_Bryffelkundecim: Can I risk losing other stuff? like things in msqldatabases, files and such?01:08
quietonechasedawg1: there are some formats that rhythmbox cant or wont change the details of. I can fully manipulate anything that is .ogg01:08
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: I don't think so, because those are config files. You should backup all your important files before doing this.01:08
Ostlian_Bryffelkundecim: ok01:09

JebnorIn 8.04LT I'm tying to install libqt4-dev and it does not install due to a bunch of dependencies that are 'not going to be installed'.  Has anyone seen this behaviour?01:11
JebnorCorrection. 8.10.01:12
chasedawg1quietone: k thanks01:12
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: Sorry, you cam omit "sudo" from that command, since you are in the recovery console.... Hopefully you don't get a Permission error from aptitude...01:12
quietonechasedawg1: do you also use windows?01:12
chasedawg1quietone: ya i have dual boot, but i dont get on windows that much01:13
Ostlian_Bryffelkundecim: I tried that too, and then aptitude printed out all avalilable parameters and at the bottom "This aptitude does not have super cow powers"01:13
undecimmelvincv: Well then you don't need to worry about the entire root partition, because all the files from there can be downloaded freely from ther internet. You just need to copy any important files from your home directory to somewhere else.01:14
cgHas anyone managed to get line-in going for an onboard sound card, to play straight through speakers without a delay? tried pulseaudio's loopback module but it has a 1-2 second delay :(  thanks.01:14

zig_And I've a question: I put the USB stick in, and it reads in the utility as having two devices: /dev/sdd and /dev/sdd101:16
undecimckw: look at tee. It should be installed by default.01:16
Ostlian_Bryffelkundecim: I got another error now after it listed all packages that was gpoing to be reinstalled: "I wasn't able to locate file for the linux-image-2.6.24-24-server package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package."  :(01:17
ckwI am getting a crash that outputs to the server cga console, then becomes unresponsive01:17
zig_This leads me to believe the USB stick is in fact partitions... my question is: Which should I select to format?01:17
melvincvis there a system automatic repair option in ubuntu?01:17
imranHey guys, quick question. Here's the scenario : Had Windows XP. Later, installed Ubuntu to a new HD. Even later, partitioned the Windows drive and installed Windows 7 on it. This replaced Grub. Now, Windows 7 boots and asks if I want to boot 7 or XP. I reinstalled Grub, and all that I can get on now is Ubuntu. How can I get back to booting Windows 7, from where I can choose XP or 7?01:17
zig_Should I format /dev/sdd, clearing out the partition information? Or should I format /dev/sdd1?01:17
komputeszig_: the sdd is the device, the sdd1 is the partition01:17
komputeszig_: it makes no diff what you partition, in my experience01:17
melvincvimran: there should an option called windows xp professional01:18
quietonechasedawg1: No. I have stopped searching for music programs as Rythymbox covers my personal needs. Have you read the forums?01:18

chasedawg1quietone: I'm reading them now.01:19
undecimOstlian_Bryffelk: I'm all out of ideas for this one. I think you might have better luck on the Ubuntu forums though, since someone must have run into a problem like this before, and the forums tend to reach more eyes than IRC.01:20

djtoastHi all,  Does anyone know if multi gpu support is planned in the next randr version?01:33
nohupalthough i'm not sure if there's supposed to be a space between chainloader and +1... :) (mine has one)01:33

I followed this guide: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2#Err15 but I get to reconfiguring and it gives me three options and I'm not sure which one. There's sda sdb and something else. I have a separate /boot partition because of an old bios. I have tried sda and sdb and neither work so before I try the last option... Is there anything I'm doing wrong?01:55

Dr_Willisimran:  you can.. but that wont update grub to the latest version (grub2) - and grub2 has the fancy new stuff to see/add windows automatically02:11
Dr_Willisimran:  you may have to manually edit your /boot/grub/menu.lst and add a proper entry for your windows drive.02:11
imranDr_Willis, I tried to manually do it and couldn't get it - How can I update to 9.10 and install Grub2? I wanted to upgrade to 9.10 anyway so this is a good excuse for myself02:12
DragonKnight혹시 한국분 계신가요?02:12
Dr_Willisimran:  i would do a clean install to 9.10 - not a upgrade.. but you can try a upgrade if you want02:12
ubottuFor upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/upgrading02:12

Dr_Willisbaltadt:  if they are owned  by root.. then you use the proper sudo commands to delete them02:20
baltadtwhat is that command?02:20
Dr_Willisimran:  upgradeing however will NOT get you to grub2. so you would still need to add the windows sytem by hand. or manually upgrade to grub202:20
Dr_Willisbaltadt:  sudo rm /path/to/whatever   - and you proberly SHOULD go read a few bash tutorials first02:20
imranDr_Willis, I understand, and ok one more question, is the installation of grub2 difficult, assuming I'm decent with terminal?02:20

Dr_Willisfumbles:  the tune2fs command can change uuids :) that may be easier then finding all the other places where UUIDs are used.02:29
Dr_Willisbye all..02:29
Brandon_I just installed 9.10 it won't boot normally, just in recovery mode. I had a problem with the /dev/disk/by-uuid directory being missing in the busybox shell, but that seems to be fixed. Now it hangs at the progress bar. How can I see normal text for the boot? (I've removed quiet and splash in grub)02:30
fumblesI could just update the UUIDs too...the os_prober will find the other operating systems as well as my custom_40 :x02:30
WilabobCan anyone help me? I'm using the live CD because I updated to grub2 and I now have error 15. I was using a separate /boot partition because of an old bios. I tried this guide: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2#Err15 but I still can't boot. Is it possible that when I updated it didn't install to my /boot partition but to my linux partition instead? If so can I fix it? I don't want to reinstall!! PLEASE HELP!02:32

Joesephae86-drifter: Alright.  I'll probably try that later.  Thanks.03:01
undecimWilabob: I think you are looking in the wrong place. You need to use the file browser to look at the main partition of your installed system and read the file /etc/fstab with a text editor. In there will be auto-generated comments (lines starting with #) explaining each partition.03:03

undecimlotus: I don't think it is possible to do that.03:12
eric_3lotus: sounds like an interesting question. I am not an expert but i think that it is a hardware thing. But it may be that the os controls that03:12
undecimWilabob: Okay, now type this command: "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt"03:12
undecimWilabob: Im sorry, wait.03:12
lotusundecim: why?  The right-click safely remove usb drive option does just that03:12
superjet_busyis there a packages list that ubuntu dropped after or before rsync from debian?03:13
eric_3that just ubmounts it03:13
lotuseric_3: I think it might be a hardware thing, but somehow the OS is able to make that happen03:13
undecimWilabob: type this command: "sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot"03:13
undecimlotus: That's because it stops the device.03:13
lotuseric_3: not true.  When I unmount it manually, the light doesn't turn off03:13
Wilabobundecim: done03:13
lotusundecim: how can I stop the device by hand?03:13
undecimlotus: if that's what you meant, you can use "sudo unmount [device or path]"03:13
eric_3when you click safley remove (bad spelling) it just unmounts it so no data or power is sent to it03:13
eric_3k sorry03:14
lotusundecim: eric_3: I've tried that, it doesn't kill the light :D03:14
keepsakelotus: What about "umount"? =P03:14
undecimWilabob: okay, now type "sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda"03:15
lotuskeepsake: yah that's the command i was issuing.  Are you saying unmount is different?03:15
ouyeshow is the support of ubuntu to dual core cpu ?03:15
keepsakelotus: Nah, I'm pretty sure it's just umount.03:15
ae86-drifterouyes, its good03:15
ouyesae86-drifter, how you know that ?03:15
keepsakeouyes: Personally I've had issues with the 32-bit, but the 64-bit works flawlessly.03:15
undecimlotus: Come to think of it, that makes some sense... I think maybe there is a DBus call that can be used. After I'm done helping/talking with some people, I'll look for it.03:16
ae86-drifterouyes, because i use ubuntu03:16
lotuskeepsake: yah.  I did a "sudo umount /dev/sdb*" and the light is still on03:16
eric_3perhaps it is still connected when you do that thus allowing for re mounting on other users but when you safley remove it assumes that you are not going to connect to it again. Tell me, when you click safely remove can you remount w/ out having to pul out dirve and put back in?03:16
ouyeskeepsake,  so you think it better to use 32bit ?03:16
lotusundecim: cool thankyou :D  I found something about a suspend command but I'm not sure I'm doing it right.  http://elliotli.blogspot.com/2009/01/safely-remove-usb-hard-drive-in-linux.html was the page I found it on03:16
crankharderso if not /dev/sd* where might a USB HD be showing up?03:16
crankharderls /dev/hd*03:16
keepsakeouyes: Yes, if Ubuntu can detect your cores correctly.03:16
lotuseric_3: I'm not sure let me try to find out03:17
Wilabobundecim: That didn't work, it gave me all the usages for grub-install03:17
Wilabobundecim: I typed exactly: sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/dev/sda03:17
lotuseric_3: no, it's not listed in fdisk -l anymore03:17
undecimWilabob: I'm sorry... more mistakes from me again. I believe that the = should be a space instead.03:18
ouyesae86-drifter, keepsake  i found that the two core of my dual amd cpu were always at the same usage level 38% or 100%, it seems the ubuntu only recognized them just one03:18
ae86-drifterouyes, either that or it balances the CPU load!03:18
Wilabobundecim: Nope that didn't work either.03:18
undecimWilabob: Also, make sure you are getting the space between /mnt and /dev/sda03:18
keepsakeouyes: Do a "sudo cat /etc/proc/cpuinfo"03:18
eric_3than when you click safely remove it assumes that you are going to take the drive out. And unmount allows you to remount on new user w/ out have to pull out stick03:18
eric_3does that make sense03:19
undecimWilabob: It's a little difficult to see the spaces on some IRC clients.03:19
HandyGandyI'm running the x64 version of Koala. I installed kde. Now I am trying to uninstall mysql, but apt tries to remove kde. Any idea why? Or if I can fix it?03:19
lotuseric_3: yeah lots of sense.  I still want that functionality at the command line, though.  I know it's there, but I'm not sure how to invoke it.03:19
ouyeskeepsake, no such a file03:19
kraitosdoes anybody know if songbird supports mp3 players?03:20
keepsakemy bad03:20
keepsakeouyes: It should be "sudo cat /cpu/procinfo"03:20
Wilabobundecim: Oh, it did something else... It said unrecognized option --root-directory when I left the = in and put a space between /mnt and /dev/sda03:20
eric_3lotus: i think it must be a hardware thing. I may not be correct though so don't stand by my answer. I think that it might also be the flash drive (hence hardware) because diffrent flash drives only have the light turn on when they are being accessed.03:21
ouyeskeepsake, again no such a file03:21

jdcaseyubuntu: yeah, and it's been running for a couple months this way...but after this power interruption, it's not booting03:30

mzawieskakeepsake, which file system is preferable for xp fat 16 or fat 32?04:23
jarlathAlf_Stewart, it's a shame. It sounds like a great feature.04:23
undecimWilabob: Okay, let's edit grub.cgf directly for a moment so that this is only a temporary change (i.e will be undone with update-grub), but can you change the colors in likes 46 and 47 of your grub.cfg file to something else? This will tell us if grub is reading your image or not.04:23
Out_ColdXfact, i googled system monitor and cross refferenced it with ubuntu lol04:23
keepsakemzawieska: NTFS, if you can. Otherwise, FAT32.04:23
Alf_Stewarti think it has something to do with grub04:24
Xfactalexandros: it's released as stable but I think it's 'still not totally stable' like beta....04:24
keepsakeXfact: The 10 stands for October, so it's been out for months now =P04:24
Alf_Stewarti think when i installed linux i unchecked the box in the installation screen for installing a boot loader on the usb drive i think that might be why..can anyone confirm this?04:24
Out_ColdXfact, there are always bugs when people modify the OS to their liking.... if everything worked perfect people would get charged to use ubuntu04:24
Wilabobundecim: Okay so what do you want me to do exactly?04:24
undecimWilabob: For example, replace "set color_normal=light-green/green" with something like "set color_normal=red/blue", then restart and see if you see the color change in grub.04:24
keepsakeAlf_Stewart: Of course. If you don't have the bootloader... you can't load Ubuntu =P04:25
Alf_Stewartdamn it :)04:25

Xfactwell, Ubuntu promise it'll be free forever, and people always expect perfect product in this time, and ubuntu 9.10 is not that stable as compare to other version till 8.0404:26

jarlathOut_Cold, ah ok.04:33
keepsaketcarter: How are you running it?04:33
Out_Coldtcarter, wrong way to go about it for a noob..... go to a terminal and type sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-18504:33
Xfactanyone can access my desktop through remote desktop?04:33
tcarterthe one i have from nvidia...just clicking on the file04:34
jarlathXfact, that's a pity. I've stuck with Ubuntu because it's always run well for me on my laptops / desktop. But if I was experiencing intermittent trouble I'm sure I'd loose it!04:34
keepsaketcarter: You'll need do "sudo sh /path/to/file"04:34

LinuX2halfhow do I know if I can run an 64 bit operating system?04:34
Out_Coldtcarter, you can also run the script call that keepsake offered04:35

LinuX2halfHow could I check?04:35
Out_ColdLinuX2half, are you in ubuntu?04:35

LinuX2halfYes I'm running Ubuntu04:36

Out_Coldi'm still loading.... bandwidth is buggered today04:37
LinuX2halfkeepsake: really? So I can only run 32 bits?04:37
undecimWilabob: Because if grub can't get into gfxterm mode, it won't display a background.04:38
Out_ColdLinuX2half, most definitely 32 bit lol04:38
keepsakeLinuX2half: Yeah, but to be honest, 32-bit isn't really a big disadvantage or something.04:38

ghufranhi .. i need some help .. i have 9.1 64 bit installed on my system and suddenly wireless has stopped working (it was working fine earlier) .. also i added some programs in my startup .. they no longer run at startup04:38
ghufranhow can i resolve this?04:39
LinuX2halfkeepsake: why? I thought 64 bit can handle intense cpu level04:39
Out_ColdLinuX2half, 64 bit just uses memory more efficiently when it can04:39
tcarterout_cold, when i ran the script call that keepsake mentioned i got a blue screen that said:     ERROR: nvidia-installer must be run as root04:39
Out_Coldtcarter, so run sudo sh04:39
keepsakeLinuX2half: It can, there are issues with compatibility and such; for common users 32-bit is easier.04:39
Out_Coldtcarter, which was in his script call04:40
tcarterout_cold, I did04:40
kaiser2011hello everyone. I just installed ubuntu 64 bit on my laptop. I had something to ask regarding sound04:40
Out_Coldtcarter, can you past the command?04:40
LinuX2halfkeepsake: so then 32 bit have fewer issue than 64 bits?04:40
tcarterout_cold,sh /path/to/file04:40
keepsaketcarter: "sudo sh /path/to/file"04:40
scott_ino2keepsake, might have been the case years ago, but ive found that 64-bit is pretty much on par with 32-bit at this point04:40
Out_Coldtcarter, sudo sh /path to file04:40
keepsakescott_ino2: While that may be true, there are still a lot of programs that need wrappers =\04:41
tcarterout_cold, ok let me see04:41

keepsakeLinuX2half: Generally speaking it's like that.04:41
Wilabobundecim: Any suggestions?04:41
undecimWilabob: Care for another reboot?04:41
keepsakescott_ino2: Well, the last time I used Ubuntu, Flash was wrapped, and some other things like webcams. I dunno how it's changed since then though.04:41
jarlathLinuX2half, it's faster for processor intensive stuff like 3D rendering (Blender) and such. But your normal desktop experience won't be noticably faster.04:41
scott_ino2keepsake, flash has been native 64-bit player and libraries for well over a year now :)04:42
Wilabobundecim: Sure.04:42

undecimYou said you are chatting with your macbook, rather than the computer we are troubleshooting, correct?04:53
Wilabobundecim: Yeah04:54
keepsakescott_ino2: There's also GimpShop which emulates a PS environment.04:54
scott_ino2mzawieska, slices?04:54
Out_Coldtcarter, you need to install via command line then....04:54
undecimWilabob: Go to the command line from the grub menu (ctrl+c, I believe)04:54
scott_ino2mzawieska, also google Pixel3204:54
Out_Coldtcarter, got another computer to chat on??04:54
Wilabobundecim: OK04:54
mzawieskascott_ino2, so which one do u recommend?04:54
undecimWilabob: let me know when you're there.04:54
tcarterout_cold, no just this one04:54
Wilabobundecim: K04:55
keepsakescott_ino2, mzawieska: Pixel is not open source, and costs $3x. Use GIMP if you want a starter program.04:55
Out_Coldtcarter, well.... you get that error when you try to run the sudo sh command??04:55
scott_ino2mzawieska, GIMP can probably do everything you want, however like photoshop, it's a complex program and takes time to master. so depends on how patient you are.04:55
Wilabobundecim: Im here04:55
scott_ino2keepsake, i know just letting him know options04:55
tcarterout_cold, yes04:55
LinuX2halfGood night...04:55
Out_Coldtcarter, well get your pen and paper ready then...04:55
jamiejacksonoh well, titan_ark, it's not turning up in google?04:55
mzawieskascott_ino2, thank you :)04:56
undecimWilabob: okay, type "terminal_output" and tell me what you get.04:56
jarlathGood night LinuX2half.04:56
scott_ino2mzawieska, np, honestly i hated gimp at first coming from 5+years of photoshop, now it's all I use04:56
Wilabobundecim: gfxterm *console04:56
scott_ino2but i also took the time to learn it04:56
chu_GIMP is moving to a single interface on their next major release, maybe you'll want to look into GIMPShop until then? I don't know, learning the multiple window approach to GIMP and then having it changed on you the next version seems a bit silly.04:56
titan_arkjamiejackson: i got the same way to do it for restarting processes. just checking up on powerdevil now04:56
tcarterout_cold, got it04:57
undecimWilabob: type lsmod, and look for "vbe", and "tga" modules in the list.04:57
scott_ino2chu_, they're seriously doing that? wow can't believe they'd do that after all these years saying how they didnt want a to be a photoshop clone04:57
keepsakescott_ino2: I won't deny that Pixel looks amazing though04:57
scott_ino2keepsake, i tried it roughly 2-3 years ago04:57
scott_ino2it's not bad... honestly id just rather use gimp at this point now04:57
keepsakescott_ino2: If you get used to it/if you support GNU, it's of course the better option =P04:57
NFischerHi all, how do i stream music through my LAN?! i just set up an gnump3d Server but i dont want a on-demand server but rather an LAN-Radio cahnnel in which i can arbitrarily tune in..04:57
scott_ino2keepsake, i have no issue with close sourced software really, other than the fact that it usually wont run on linux04:58
Wilabobundecim: How do I go up? a bunch a code covered the screen and I don't see those things.04:58
jarlathHows Krita coming along these days? It was showing promise last time I checked - about two years ago.04:58
undecimWilabob: Shift + Page Up?04:58
keepsakescott_ino2: That's true. Pixel is also one of the few pay-to-use software I've seen on Linux, although, I have stuck with mostly GNU/freeware.04:58
Out_Cold1. ctrl+alt+f1  2. log in  3. sudo stop gdm 4. sudo sh /path/to/file 5. sudo reboot04:58
chu_scott_ino2: http://www.chromecode.com/2009/10/single-window-mode-progress-report.html04:58
Wilabobundecim: nope04:58
Out_Cold** tcarter ^^04:58
undecimWilabob: this could be a problem...04:58
scott_ino2chu_, thanks for the link04:58
tcarterout_cold, i am ready04:58
Wilabobundecim: ...lol04:59
Out_Coldtcarter, 1. ctrl+alt+f1  2. log in  3. sudo stop gdm 4. sudo sh /path/to/file 5. sudo reboot04:59
undecimWilabob: try "set gfxmode=1024x768" and see if that changes your resolution in grub.04:59
philyawI did something with themes on Kubuntu and bam, my keyboard didn't work anymore and the bar above windows disappeared to where I couldn't close anything again.  I'm about to uninstall if this doesn't seem familiar to anyone.04:59
titan_arkjamiejackson: is it possible to check the version using the version command?04:59
chu_The single or multiple window interface will be optional. Interesting. Might as well start learning GIMP now :p04:59
scott_ino2chu_, optional i see :)04:59
titan_arkit gives the same error04:59
matelot? can someone tell me how to burn mp3 to CD to be played on ordinary cd player ?05:00
scott_ino2chu_, take the time to learn it, like really learn it. I can pretty much do everything i could with photoshop at this point05:00
Wilabobundecim: no, maybe that's the resolution im in?05:00
scott_ino2chu_, i still hate how they do text though:)05:00
Out_Coldmatelot, try installing k3b05:00
tcarterout_cold, thanks i'll be back shortley05:00
undecimWilabob: Aright, try "terminal console" and the "terminal gfxterm" to change your resolution05:00
keepsakescott_ino2: PS had a nice text-manipulation engine =P05:00
Out_Coldtcarter, good luck ;)05:01
matelotOut_Cold, can Brasero do it ?05:01
scott_ino2keepsake, not just that, even making edits to text layers is overly complicated with gimp05:01
mcnellisI'm commanding sudo kill -9 PID but it won't kill my process ... is there something else i need to do?05:01
Out_Coldmatelot, never tried.... but i'll check now for you05:01
keepsakescott_ino2: What about Pixel?05:01
Wilabobundecim: It says unknown command "terminal"05:02
Out_Coldmatelot, the first option "create traditional cd" in brasero sould do it05:02
scott_ino2keepsake, what about it?05:02
scott_ino2keepsake, i actually still have my code for pixel, i should try it again.05:02
matelotOut_Cold, ah yes, try it now thanks05:02
keepsakescott_ino2: You have the source?05:02
undecimWilabob: Okay, grub is just being a pain now.... Try "rmmod tga" and "rmmod vbe"05:03
scott_ino2keepsake, let me see if my login still works, i don't think they gave out .src05:03
Out_Coldmcnellis, what are you trying to kill?? you replace PID with a number05:03
keepsakescott_ino2: Ah, I see what you mean.05:03
Wilabobundecim: rmmod tga works but rmmod vbe says no such module05:03
mcnellisYeah Out_Cold the specific PID is 9805, just didn't include that in my message lol05:03
undecimWilabob: that's likely the problem then.05:04
mcnellisso my command was sudo kill -9 9805 but the process won't die05:04
mcnellisit's a firefox process05:04
Wilabobundecim: anyway of fixing it?05:04
Out_Coldmcnellis, try this in terminal: ps aux | grep your_app (like wine)05:04
undecimWilabob: 1 sec...05:04
undecimWilabob: I need to figure out exactly what vbe does.05:05
mcnellisyeah Out_Cold that's what I used to to find the PID and verify that it's still running after I did "kill -9 9805"05:05
FiReSTaRTundecim: sudo killall process_name05:05
undecimWilabob: I know it's involved in graphics, but that's the extent of my knowledge on it... brb, google.05:05
Out_Coldmcnellis, i think that one from FiReSTaRT was for you05:05
akioI am using Lucid, but I imagine there is more help here as #ubuntu+1 seems pretty dead right now05:06
mcnellisyeah I tried that too FiReSTaRT used sudo killall firefox05:06
mcnellisstill won't die :|05:06
unopmcnellis, what's the state of the process as per 'ps aux' ?05:06
akiokeyboard doen't work in X, touchpad does - after safe-upgrade this happened05:06

=== Guest84798 is now known as chri5
Out_Coldwhat state is D?05:08
undecimWilabob: Try changing that "insmod vbe" to "insmod vga" in the config file.05:08
unopmcnellis, state D indicate "Uninterruptible sleep (usually IO)" -- meaning that the process is waiting for some suspended IO to complete, things like a hung disk access, network, etc05:08

UpgradeOrNotHey everyone. I've been thinking about upgrading to 9.10 from 9.04 for a while. Anyone have any specific reasons I should upgrade?05:08
Wilabobundecim: Okay just startin05:08
X-722Anyone here run ubuntu on an asus eee?05:08
DrManhattanwhy not?05:08
mcnellisinteresting unop ... is there anything i cna do to kill the process? I don't know why it's still running i don't have a window open i just see the process running when i run ps aux05:08
usserNFischer, icecast is one option05:09
Out_Coldmcnellis, try a reboot?05:09
undecimX-722: I set up an eee for my sister.05:09
Wilabobundecim: Where do I find that in the file?05:09
=== angelus is now known as brishu
FiReSTaRTUpgradeOrNot: if all of your hardware is working properly under 9.04, stick with it.. 9.10 was more unstable i.m.e.05:09
mcnellisdamn I was hoping that wouldn't be my only option but it seems it is :(05:09
X-722undecim: Do you recall which model it was?05:09
mcnellissuch a pain to launch all my programs again lol05:09
Out_Coldi think that kill has an option to get rid of it... but not sure which one05:10
undecimWilabob: /boot/grub/grub.cfg  If this fix works, we will need to edit other files to make it work after update-grub though.05:10
Wilabobundecim: what line?05:10
NFischerusser, yeah, looks nice, thx!05:10
FiReSTaRTUpgradeOrNot: the only reason i didn't revert to jaunty was that karmic fixed my suspend and got my built-in mic working05:10
undecimWilabob: 2605:10
Wilabobundecim: nvm05:10
geitenneukeris there a upnp client available to read DLNA stuff from WMP or such stuff?05:10
unopmcnellis, Out_Cold - you cannot kill a process in state D -- you'll have to wait it out or fix the IO problem05:10
braintorchHi. Does anybody know how to fix ps cutting process' names in terminal?05:10
UpgradeOrNotFiReSTaRT: One thing me and another user have found is that when 9.10 is loading, that loading bar seems to make it seem slower. :P05:10
undecimX-722: It was a 900 model. 901A, I believe.05:11
unopmcnellis, what was firefox doing before you attempted to kill it?05:11
geitenneukeri thougnt T300005:11
Out_Coldlol mcnellis reboot05:11
FiReSTaRTUpgradeOrNot: i've also experienced slower boot and buggy gnome (a couple of applets crapped out on me)05:11
UpgradeOrNotFiRtSTaRT: Yeah I think I'll just stay with 9.04 for now. Thanks.05:11
X-722undecim: Everything install ok on it?05:11
X-722I mean, everything work after install?05:11
Wilabobundecim: nothing happened05:11
mcnellisunop: not sure I had just closed firefox before and when I came back to my comp i tried to open it again and got the message that it was still running so I used ps aux | grep firefox and here i am trying to kill it heh05:12
Wilabobundecim: Any other suggestion? I have to go soon05:12
mcnellisi guess it just never properly closed the window?05:12
undecimX-722: Yeah. Even wireless worked out of the box.05:12
jonas3good day05:12
X-722undecim: Thank you05:12
unopmcnellis, and did you do a kill -9 right off the bat?05:12
FiReSTaRTUpgradeOrNot: good choice.. i loved jaunty but still had those pet peeves.. had to carry around an extra mic and couldn't suspend first thing in the morning05:12
mcnellisno tried killall firefox first05:12
FiReSTaRTi mean resume05:13
mcnellisit was in state D from the beginning though05:13
undecimWilabob: I have no idea. other than the fact that the vbe module isn't there, I don't see any reason it wouldn't work, but the vga module should have worked.05:13
unopmcnellis, can you open another instance of firefox?05:13
Wilabobundecim: Damn... I g2g then. Thanks for your help again.05:13
mcnellisunop: only if I launch with the profile manager and use a dif profile05:14
x_is there a program or terminal code to figure out how hot is my cpu fan?05:14
UpgradeOrNotFiReSTaRT: I remember trying 9.10 a while ago but I didn't like the theme and some of the apps crashed on me. But luckily I have support for all of my hardware, if I ever decided to upgrade in the future.05:14
jonas3sorry to ask about this (noob here) but i'm having trouble installing my samsung printer on jaunty...can anyone help?05:14
unopmcnellis, strange, guess a reboot is imminent then - it's probably the only thing you can do05:14
FiReSTaRTUpgradeOrNot: exactly.. hopefully they'll iron out the gnome bugs by 10.04.. keeping 9.10 on my media center though.. there it's perfect05:15

XaeroVoss: after rebooting, i get an unusable display error from X, and even after reconfiguring X it doesnt work correctly, but theres an error about loading the Nvidia kernel  module, so I assumed it probably got corrupted somehow, and just purged & reinstalled the driver to get back in to a live X session05:46

ubottuYou can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !Adept, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 20000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!05:55
nightsjammiesOh good. Finally.05:55
fata_errothanks for the tips i going to get denyhosts running05:55
ubottuWith Launchpad's Personal Package Archives (PPA), you can build and publish binary Ubuntu packages for multiple architectures simply by uploading an Ubuntu source package to Launchpad. See https://help.launchpad.net/PPAQuickStart.05:55

nightsjammiesI know the battery is good. Do I need to install any libs for it to work?05:56
Parabolahotplug should take care of it05:57
powertool08fata_erro: I think it comes this way by default, but double check sshd_config for Permit Root = no and Protocol = 2, protocol 1 is weak and well, root shouldn't be logging in.05:57
Parabolado you have anything else in the room thats wireless?05:57

nightsjammiesHey, I've got a question. I want to install linux on an old gateway tower. I'm not sure how old it is, but it has a sticker on it thsat says something about windows NT. Which ditro should I use?06:20
edbian_nightsjammies, Try the Ubuntu live CD and see how it runs.  If Ubuntu is too much for it look at DSL or Puppy ;)06:20
kinja-sheepnightsjammies: Make it a server. :)06:20
edbian_DSL = Damn Small Linux06:20
nulledWine is completely uniqiue, so ya06:21
nightsjammiesWhat is the closest to Ubunut?06:21
edbian_nightsjammies, DSL and Puppy are both pretty equally far from Ubuntu in my opinion.  If you're looking for a lightweight ubuntu I suggest xbuntu06:22
edbian_nightsjammies, Yep :)  Ubuntu with xfce06:23
rwwnightsjammies: Ubuntu Server is the closest server distribution to Ubuntu :\06:23
edbian_nightsjammies, Ubuntu Server is Ubuntu ;)06:23
nightsjammiesI've never used a server before.06:23
nightsjammiesAnd okay.06:23
kinja-sheepedbian_: Xubuntu is not lightweight IMO. :<06:23
edbian_kinja-sheep, It's more lightweight than gnome isn't it?06:24
nightsjammiesShould I go with 9.10?06:24
rwwedbian_: not particularly06:24

infidi know i can add it to my PATH but shouldnt linux do this by deafult06:29
powertool08infid: You have to adjust your $PATH variable, or you could symlink it to the /usr/bin folder.06:30
Dravekxedbian_, via ssh... i installed using sudo apt-get install... hwodo I uninstall?06:30
edbian_Dravekx, sudo apt-get remove <packageName>06:30
FlannelDravekx: sudo apt-get remove --purge ...06:30
edbian_Dravekx, sudo apt-get purge <package> will remove the configuration files as well06:30
edbian_Dravekx, Configuration files are usually found in /etc06:31
Dravekxk. :)06:31
edbian_Dravekx, No problem06:32
powertool08Speaking of /etc, whats the best way to backup those config files? /home is easy, I want to keep everything in it. However I can do without a large number of the files in /etc.06:32
Flannelpowertool08: Did you manually change anything in /etc?06:32
macopowertool08: i usually backup all of /etc anyway. its only a couple mb total06:33
edbian_powertool08, They might be a large number of files in /etc but the actual size on the disc is probably relatively small06:33
powertool08Flannel: A few things. Enough that I don't want to list them for backup one at a time unless I have to, but not enough to grab the whole directory.06:33
kinja-sheeppowertool08: 10MB at most.06:33
macopowertool08: mine is 18mb06:33

macopowertool08: (i also have a lot of stuff installed)06:34
Flannelpowertool08: If they're just minor changes, it might just be worth it to note the changes in a text file in your home.  And yes, as other people have said, etc is rather small.06:34
powertool08maco: This is true, I was just thinking, lots of files, more space taken than necessary.06:34

Jordan_UOne``: At least 1 GIG, and this isn't the most dependable procedure08:11
cobra679do you need an anti virus ?08:11
powertool08ouyes:  To answer the forum question: As for ubuntu supporting that cpu, who knows. You might want to ask around in #ubuntu-dev. And for size, I have a 15" laptop, I think its big and heavy and I wish I had gone with a 12" or so, still big enough to see and usable as a desktop replacement in a pinch, yet small enough to still be portable and light.08:11

ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit08:23

gazraHello, does anyone know where I can find infos about cloud computer services. Differences between Google, Amazon, Ubuntu, etc clouds?09:01
MASARUwotagazra: wikipedia?09:03
ardchoillegazra: That's a very interesting idea and one I feel the rest of the community needs to know as well. Perhaps you can post this question at http://ubuntuforums.org09:03
MASARUwota"cloud computing" D:09:03
MASARUwotaenjoy privacy loss and corporational control D:09:03
Quan-Time_gazra: "consipracy theory ahoy" resist cloud computing.. your data will no longer be "your data". much like the pics on facebook, they are 100% no longer yours.. etc..09:04
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!09:04

drizzt__adityag, of course it wouldn't, you need a proprietary driver fiorst. See your motherboard manual to see which card do you have, then google for instructions.10:08
ardchoillemeowbuntu: upgrade upgrades your packages, dist-upgrade brings in new packages to satisfy dependencies in order to upgrade your current packages.10:08
ubottuadityag: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.10:09
ynefmeowbuntu: "dist-upgrade" is a different method of upgrading than using "upgrade", the difference being that "dist-upgrade" tries to perform an update in a more intelligent way, rather than just getting all the latest versions for all programs (which is what "upgrade" does) -- the man page for apt-get is quite good for this (open a terminal window, and write "man apt-get" to learn more)10:09

ShazbotMcNastyrethus, that sounds goood to me..your first comment10:53

ShazbotMcNastyrethus,  how do u back up 320GB part on an 80GB one?10:56
hateballrethus: Well there's two aspects... most likely the bigger one is faster, but you're more likely to use that space for personal data. One option would be to partition the 320GB and use the 80GB for rsync/backup10:56
rethusShazbotMcNasty: only data which i need10:56

gFredHi! :)12:24
ferryShazbotMcNasty: so.. sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-12-x86.x86_64.run --builtpkg Ubuntu/karmic12:24
kjelleHi. If i have a given machine without IP, but I know the MAC. I am on the same subnet as the machine, how do i communicate with it? :) I want to login to it, and have a shell in the end.12:24
gFredI have an Ubuntu 9.10 home server, and I want to connect to it via remote desktop12:25
ferryShazbotMcNasty: so.. sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-12-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic12:25
lord_hypnosc_nick none of those 2 is empty one is ntfs and is mounted correctly, the other one should be ext3 and is not working. in gparted it tells me that the whole drive (including the ntfs partition that is actually mounted) is unpartitioned and empty12:25
c_nicklord_hypnos: 1 TB ?!!!!12:25
trijntjeDJones, Found it, thanks for your time12:25
ShazbotMcNastyferry, 'sudo sh ./ati........run'12:25
lord_hypnosyes c_nick12:25
gFredI've forwarded port 5900 in the router and I can access the box remotely over internet (e.g viewing torrents in rtgui, etc)12:25
ShazbotMcNastylord_hypnos, gparted HATES ntfs12:25
c_nickok so u are seeing them in the fdisk.. can u see them on the desktop12:25
ferryShazbotMcNasty: so.. 'sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-12-x86.x86_64.run' --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic12:25
c_nickand what are you going in gparted anyways.. ??!! specific reason for that12:26
ShazbotMcNastyferry why are you putting in --buildpkg Ubuntu/karmic ?12:26
gFredWhen I try to connect to the box remotely via Real VNC (Vista) it hangs 5 seconds and gives me this error: read connection reset by peer 1005412:26
gFredANy ideas?12:26
lord_hypnosc_nick yeah somebody told me to go into gparted to check if i can see the partitions there12:26
c_nickthe question is are both of them mounted ?? and can u access them12:26
lord_hypnosbut it wont work apparently12:26
ShazbotMcNastytry it without that, I've never ever seen anyone use any type of syntax like 'Ubuntu/karmic/ before12:26
lord_hypnosi cant access the ext3 partition sdb112:26
lord_hypnosthats the problem12:26
ferryShazbotMcNasty: to build .deb packages from catalyst.run12:26
ShazbotMcNastyyou don't need a .deb12:27
ReginNit takes a while to zero out a 110Gb harddisk with dd ! heh12:27
ShazbotMcNastyyou need to make the .run install it12:27
c_nickhmm lord_hypnos well.. have you tried manually mounting it12:27
ShazbotMcNastyferry JUST DO ' sudo sh ./ati.....run'12:27
ShazbotMcNastythen if it doesn't work, paste the output into a pastebin and link me12:27

valbergthe time on my computer is really off12:28
valbergand i can't seem to get it to play nicely with the ntp servers12:28
c_nicklord_hypnos:  try sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /media/lord (here lord is a manually created folder in /media)12:28
ferryShazbotMcNasty: it will install drivers!! i can do it another way.. just click the right button on *.run package and allow executing it as a programm.. but after i install drivers.. karmic will crash!!12:28
c_nickdo you have any data there?12:28
cobra679i fuck cunts on the weekend only12:29
lord_hypnosim on live cd right now c_nick12:29
ShazbotMcNastyferry, than I'm sure you've got the wrong drivers12:29
lord_hypnosill try it but i have to log in12:29
ferryShazbotMcNasty: so that is why i need .deb packages.. there are not any other drivers))=12:29
c_nickwell it will work on that too12:29
c_nicki suppose.. live cd is nothing but a live session running via ram..12:30
ShazbotMcNastyferry ATI recently dropped support on a lot of old legacy video card12:30
c_nicki think u can pretty much do everything on it12:30
ShazbotMcNastyso if you've got too old of a card, then you can't use the new distros12:30
ShazbotMcNastybecause there is no driver12:30
ShazbotMcNastywell, you CAN12:30
ShazbotMcNastyit's just a lot of work12:30
c_nicklord_hypnos: just try to manually accessing the folder if u can12:30
c_nickfolder = linux drive sdb112:30
AceKingWhat command do I use to see what format my linux drive is? Like if it's ext.3 ext.4.12:31
happy_AceKing: mke2fs12:31

overclockingInfeHello and goodmorning!12:32
garymcHi, ive had this problem before, and again i dont know how to fix it. Now ive created Launchers for all client desktops they work fine when a new user logs on. Great. But as i created them with my account and i double click on one i want to load in firefox with is http://localhost/admin it doesnt work for me only. It opens gedit instead. why is this only doing this for me?12:32
lord_hypnosc_nick, if i try to mount it it tells me that i have to put in the type of file system12:32
=== overclockingInfe is now known as oclock_inferno
ferryShazbotMcNasty: it is possible.. but on T400 it is working.. so i will do step by step and it will work for me too... the only thing is.. i need to build those packages from *.run.. and i am looking for someone who can download catalyst then make packages and send back to me all the deb packages it will build.. cause my karmic is not building any)))=12:32
c_nicklord_hypnos:  whats the command you are using12:32
bimberi /part12:32
