shane2perudetrix, it is buried in the bios somewhere, I think you have to hit tab to get the bios00:50

shane2perudetrix, what asus is it?00:51
daftykinsdetrix: a lot of the Eee's use a feature which prevents the BIOS being easily accessible. what i recommend you do is shutdown, turn off the laptop, remove the battery, disconnect mains power, then plug it back in. then start up with the power button and try F2/delete/etc to try and get in00:51

zomfgcrazyCurrently I have unallocated space within sda2.  I would like to install Ubuntu in that space.  Must I delete sda2 first, or can I install Ubuntu within that space?..01:06
daftykinszomfgcrazy: can you upload an image of gparted or whatever partitioning utility you're looking at?01:07
daftykinsi think said picture would tell a thousand partitions...01:07
yoyonedzomfgcrazy: how much space01:07
Billiardzomfgcrazy: if sda2 is an extended partiton, and you arent going to have more than 4 partitions, i would delete it and just use primary partitions01:07
yoyonedzomfgcrazy: does  sda2 contain data,01:07
zomfgcrazydaftykins, unfortunately it's on a seperate computer with no net connection currently booted on an install cd01:08
daftykinszomfgcrazy: you not got a flash drive to transfer?01:08
zomfgcrazyyoyoned, sda2 contains "unallocated space"01:08
zomfgcrazydaftykins, one moment.01:08
=== tato is now known as tato_
yoyonedzomfgcrazy: are there any partitions higher than 2 or do you just have sda1 and sda201:09
daftykinsyoyoned: please just wait for a pic so it's easier for everyone (:01:09
daftykinsbetter to know than guess01:09

jake614hi everyone! i would appreciate any help, my usb ports are not working01:10
zomfgcrazyyoyoned, just 2.01:10

daftykinshmm :/01:11
Matthew11Hello! I have a problem. I trying to set up my ubuntu for packet writing, but the pktcdvd module is missing. Where can I found it?01:11
zomfgcrazy(-> http://i45.tinypic.com/316aqvo.png <-)01:11
jake614i think this must be a software issue01:11
daftykinsjake614: which ubuntu and what changed last between now and when it didn't work?01:11
ardchoilleHow do I get "Encrypt" and "Sign" options in the nautilus right click menu? Which package do I need to install? I already have seahorse and gnupg01:11
rwwardchoille: seahorse-plugins01:11
daftykinszomfgcrazy: ah yeah that's fine, delete the sda2 then install \o/01:12
yoyonedzomfgcrazy: you can install there01:12
songerwhy audio disappears after a while on firefox01:12
mikicould someone help me with my sound, all the drivers are messed up01:12
Billiardzomfgcrazy: i would delete sda2 and just use primary partitions if you arent going to have more than 4 total01:12
zomfgcrazyBilliard, I don't think I understand the difference between primary and logical01:12
SqueeseFresh ubuntu user, having slight problems with right click - Right click always ends up selecting the first option on the menu, I have "untitled folder" everywhere :P01:13
jake614just so you know, this toshiba laptop came with vista, i switched to ubuntu jaunty in may 09 and everything worked perfectly, then switched to karmic when it was released, and again everything was working just fine (except the sound), while on karmic, usb devices stopped working after an update (after two months of working fine), then downgraded to jaunty again, got sound back, but no usb01:13
daftykinszomfgcrazy: on an MBR (normal) hard disk, you can only have 4 primary partitions (only primary are bootable) then logical ones come after. it's an old term from sorta DOS era01:13
jake614i have a webcam, a mouse and a usb flash, none work in any port, i have 401:13
daftykinsjake614: have you tried a livecd?01:14
greatendCome check out new proxy :D http://legit-source.com/01:14
daftykinsto rule out the installed OS01:14
zomfgcrazyso.. what is the point of a logical partition?01:14
rwwzomfgcrazy: the partition table format you're using supports a maximum of four partitions. Windows and Ubuntu get around this by making the fourth partition an "extended partition" with more pretend-partitions (that look and act just like regular ones) crammed inside it.01:14
ardchoillerww: do I need to enable those plugins somehow? They aren't showing in the nautilus menu01:14
rwwzomfgcrazy: the pretend partitions are called "logical" oens01:14
rwwardchoille: restart GNOME, perhaps01:14
daftykinszomfgcrazy: to have more than the primary ones (:01:15
zomfgcrazyahh.. so that's why the ubuntu one looked like it was 'inside' the blue box, graphically, while the windows one 'was'a blue box.01:15
jake614no, i havent01:15
rwwzomfgcrazy: yes :)01:15
daftykinsyep :)01:15
jake614do i need to reboot again to try?01:15
zomfgcrazySo do I want to delete sda2 and install ubuntu over that space as a primary partition?01:15
daftykinsjake614: ah i'd give that a whirl yeah. i'd reboot to boot off a CD ye01:15
ardchoillerww: That worked, thank you01:15
jake614ok, shall do... thanks again, ill be back to let you know01:16
jake614which one should i try? jaunty or karmic?01:16
mikianyone help me with my sound?01:16
Matthew11Can anybody help pls? I trying to set up my ubuntu (Karimc) to write a dvd+rw with packet writing, but the pktsetup needs the pktcdvd module, and it's missing. Where it can be found?01:16
jake614i'm most likely to keep jaunty the time being, since sound will not work on karmic01:16
Matthew11there is a patch for sound01:17
Matthew11it makes the things better01:17
daftykinsMatthew11: "udftools" package. to find that out i just ran "apt-cache search pktcdvd"01:18
Matthew11yes, i installed it, but the module is still missing01:18

detrixI am still having problems getting an ASUS Eee netbook to boot off of a usb memory stick ( a SanDisk Cruzer), and the 1st partition is bootable.  I set the bios 1st device to removable media, 2nd device to San Cruzer, and 3rd the internal Drive.  Its seems to be trying to boot off of it, but I still get windows.  Any ideas?01:20
bankixGood eavening01:20
daftykinsdetrix: what did you make it bootable with?01:21
ascheelWindows has the false 3.75 GB RAM limit, is Linux the same or does it give a darn about it?01:21
bankixdetrix: Did you ever boot from usb stick? Did it work?01:21
detrixI used cfdisk01:21
daftykinsascheel: you have to run a 64-bit OS.01:21
ascheeldaftykins: run a 64-bit OS for what?01:21
daftykinsto get 4GB RAM+ to be usable.01:21
joh6nnascheel: to bypass the 3.5G limit01:21
bankixdetrix: Booting from USB stick is completely different than booting an internal harddrive.01:22
daftykinsno it's different on different computers01:22
joh6nntomato, tomatoh01:22
daftykinssometimes it's 3.5, sometimes it's 3.75, depends on your graphics card etc01:22
rwwIt's 4GB total, including all forms of memory in your computer, so it generally shows up as 3.something.01:22
detrixMy wife has an Acer netbook, and it boots off of this memory stick....01:22
rwwalso, I believe Ubuntu does PAE now, but I'm not sure.01:23
bankixdetrix: use the usb-creator or UNetbootin (available for windows) for writing an ubuntu iso image to your usb stick.01:23
mikiwhats a command to automaticly install sound drivers?01:23
bankixdetrix: Both programms take care of making the stick bootable.01:23
Matthew11miki: You shuld add the PPA that contains the upgrade01:23
bankixdetrix: The rest is to your BIOS -- different BIOSes use different methods, most work, but some fail.01:24
mikiWhat's the PPA?01:24
wolterhow do i reset my xorg.conf?01:24

woltermiki, personal repository on launchpad (personal package archive)01:24
woltermiki, whose ppa are you looking for?01:24
wolteroh i see01:24
woltermiki, depends on your sound card01:25

joh6nni'm having some serious slowdown with my wireless connection, compared to the speeds that i had in both Hardy and Jaunty.  I've tried disabling ipv6 and a few other things, but nothing seems to help01:26
kradstfu people01:26
kradyou're very annoying01:26
Matthew11miki: lspci | grep media01:26
bankixdetrix: grub installer / grub bootloader01:26
detrixbankix: correct.  the usb stick has its own grub boot.01:26
mikilspci | grep media - what's meant to happen?01:27
bankixdetrix: yes, but installing grub to the MBR of your usb-disk won't help due it will never be used by the BIOS.01:27
wolterhow do i reset my xorg.conf file?01:28
Matthew11miki: it isn't important now01:28
bankixdetrix: I fear you only chance is to install grub somewhere on your harddisk so it gets started.01:28
wolterdpkg reconfigure xserver-xorg didn't work01:28
detrixbankix: I install it with my hard drives physically disconnected so the usb's mbr would be set up01:28
rwwwolter: which version of Ubuntu are you using?01:28
wolterrww, karmic01:28
DexterP17does anyone know if it is true that Ubuntu is getting a music store?01:28
bankixdetrix: To be more verbose: When the BIOS boots an USB drive, it won't load the bootloader from the MBR.01:29
Billiardwolter: you can run without an xorg.conf then01:29
rwwwolter: There isn't an xorg.conf by default, Xorg just uses autodetection. To get back to defaults, you'd just remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf01:29
andrukDexterP17: i doubt it01:29
rwwDexterP17: ask in #ubuntu-offtopic01:29
mikiso what now?01:29
teachprintProblem with keyboard -- I'm using a ibm thinkpad t41 laptop, after recent upgrade my keyboard uses the numloc characters instead of regular characters, can anyone help?01:29
wolterI don't know if that will solve my problem, Billiard / rww, I came up with it because Xorg is taking too much processor every time i wake up from suspend01:30
wolterBilliard, but well, I will trust you and remove it01:30
wolterbackup it in case anything happens01:30
rwwwolter: You probably should have asked about that, rather than how to reset xorg.conf, then ;P01:30
bankixdetrix: A solution is to install grub and the grub files in the MBR of your internal harddisk and on a partition on this disk (the filessystem doesn't matter much).01:30
wolterrww, well I have done that for 3 days and nobody answers, so I began to pioneer :)01:31
bankixdetrix: Then grub could boot the system installed on your usb-disk without a fuss.01:31

aliendude3500Dr_Willis, I'm not _stealing_ the DVD. I PAID for it... :/01:35
Dr_Willisaliendude3500:  so some comercial dvd's do work.. but some do not.01:35
blakkheimjellow: if you're using grub2, you dont havve a menu.lst01:35
Dr_Willisaliendude3500:  tell it to the courts.. it dosent matter abiouyt the dvd.. its about the encruption/protection.01:35
bankixThe notebook uses an Intel ICH9 chipset with onboard graphics. Any hints what I can try?01:35
jellowblakkheim: but i need to add a boot option01:35
brophatwill U3 prevent booting UNR on flash drive?01:35
aliendude3500Dr_Willis, how can I remove the protection?01:35
rwwjellow: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub ; I think there's a line in there for boot options01:36
Dr_Willisbrophat:  ive had all sorts of issues with U3 stuff. i just remove it.01:36
david16Doesn't libdvdcss solve the encryption issue?01:36
rwwjellow: (and then do sudo update-grub when you've added it)01:36

feedmecerealCan anyone tell how I can get my computer to beep when I get a new email in my Gmail account?01:36
Matthew11Any ide for my problem (pktcdvd module)01:36
rwwdavid16: some DVDs are horribly incompatible, even with libdvdcss installed01:36
Dr_Willisaliendude3500:  or copy the files from dvd to a folder on the pc and tell vlc to play the folder01:36
bankixaliendude: Your problem is the copy protection of your DVD.01:36
aliendude3500Dr_Willis, "File reading failed:01:36

brophatDr_Willis i can't even find it on flash01:36

rwwjellow: nope. put it all on one line, something like GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="quiet splash noapic nolapic" etc.01:40
Matthew11feedmecereal: If you vant to build a beep in your script, use the "beep" command (install it, if it isn't installed yet)01:41
Billiardfeedmecereal: you could try the beep command in the beep package i think01:41
bankixDr_Willis: Because some DVDs aren't encrypted. E.g. "Das fünfte Element" (Fifth Element) is not.01:41
Dr_Willisfeedmecereal:  like the others said. use the beep command.  its more relieable01:41

Staatsfeindi am on karmic01:49

Gran_GerThat's true, I was working fine with that computer until 9.04 version01:50
bankixGran_Ger:  Is it the same monitor for both computers?01:50
Gran_GerNo, It's diferent01:50
rwwjellow: so yes, when you have it like you want it, sudo update-grub to apply.01:50
benkillinso by default the ubuntu 9.04  box I was admining had /bin/sh as a default shell for accounts that should not be logged into like www-data and service acounts like that, so I changed them all to /bin/false. why was it set as default to be a valid shell to login as? even though there was no password set (* was in the passwd hash field) ?01:50
jellowrww: Many thanks for your help! xD01:50
Gran_GerAnd is the AMD-64 version01:50
feedmecerealBilliard: no commands work with cGmail and specifying the full path doesn't seem to work either. I guess I'll try another program. Thanks.01:50
bankixGran_Ger: I hoped for an easy solution :-)01:50
DexterP17How can i get facebook to appear on empathy01:50
Matthew11jake614: is the usb worked before?01:50
jake614just so you know, i had jaunty installed after it was released and everything worked smoothly, then updated to karmic and still everything was working just fine01:51
jake614like a month ago, after an update they stopped working01:51
cornbreadly_i dont think facebook can work with empathy01:51
Dr_Willisbankix:  it seems LEGAL copies of that movie (blueray) have problems playing in legal players. :) isetn that nice...01:51
jake614then i downgraded to jaunty again b/c of sound issues01:51
adubzzzhow can i find the ntp servers of a given network01:51
jake614yes, everything worked just fine before01:52
bankixGran_Ger: Have a look at /var/log/Xorg.0.log at the command line. The last lines should tell you what's going wrong with the graphic mode.01:52
bankixGran_Ger: Oh, you do see the splash animation during the boot?01:52
Matthew11jake614: Is there any operating system installed, that can handle the devices?01:52
jake614i only have jaunty installed01:53
bankixDr_Willis: Really nice! So nice, that I'll not risk my money facing those problems -- and just ignore everything "blu" :-)01:53
Gran_GerOk. For the AMD-64 computer with the GE-Force card, at live cd works fine01:53
Gran_Gerthe instalation was the problem01:53
detrixbankix: Hey, I got the full install mem stick to boot.  thanks for your help.01:53
jake614i dont think its the devices though, all of them worked before and none is working now, and ive tried in all ports01:53
Matthew11jake614: Have you got any other liveCD?01:54
bankixdetrix: Ŵhat was the problem if I may ask?01:54
jake614the mouse will even blink01:54
JohnTeddyHow can I tell what version of alsa I'm running right now?01:54
zeta-Is it possible to replicate my Karmic installation onto a new partition I've created on a 2nd drive?01:54
zeta-Just copy preserving permissions? I can alter the boot menu myself.01:54
JohnTeddymeaning currently running in my kernel, not installed package01:54
bankixGran_Ger: Ah, if you use the live system, everything is fine, but if you boot your installed system, the graphics mode won't come up?01:54
jake614Matthew11 no, i dont... is there something else i can try?01:54
Staatsfeindnobody an idea?01:54
detrixbankix: pretty much a bios setting.  there is a boot priority, and then a setting for which drive is the first drive.01:55
Matthew11jake614: My soundcard also deffected by one moment to the secound. So i want to sure if it isn't a hardware problem01:55
Staatsfeindlibstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory what shall i do if the lib IS installed01:55
bankixdetrix: That easy? Great!01:55
detrixbankix: it was the latter option that was needed. to set the san cruzer to be the 1st drive01:55
rwwStaatsfeind: are you using 32-bit or 64-bit Ubuntu?01:55
toastedmilkI'm trying to connect  to the internet on a different computer, but sudo lshw -C netowrk is saying that wlan0 is disabled.  How can I fix this?01:55
rwwStaatsfeind: is the program you're trying to run 32-bit?01:56
Gran_Gerthat's true into that computer.01:56
jake614Matthew11 everything worked perfectly on this laptop out of the box when i installed jaunty... lost sound with karmic, but usb was still working fine01:56
Gran_GerI had to make the installation without the live mode01:56
bankixGran_Ger: OK. And you did install the proprietary Nvidia driver, right?01:56
Staatsfeindrww i am not 100% sure. PTC.PRO.ENGINEER.WILDFIRE.v3.0.M080.LINUX01:56
Gran_Gerbut directly to the Installation opcion01:56
detrixbankix:  and that the removable media had higher priority.  ;)01:56
jake614Matthew11: sound is back now i put jaunty back, but usb is not01:56
teachprint Problem with keyboard -- I'm using an ibm thinkpad t41 laptop, after recent update my keyboard began using  numloc characters instead of regular characters, can anyone help?01:56
Gran_GerYep bankix01:56
rwwStaatsfeind: if it is, you probably need to install the "ia32-libs" package01:57
Gran_GerNow, that computer is working, but sometimes freezes01:57
bankixGran_Ger: Let me guess, there was a kernel update before your problems?01:57
Gran_Gernop, bankix01:57
Staatsfeindrww: i have already installed this for poweriso01:57
Talon_I was here a couple days ago, asking about ram usage inside ubuntu 9.10, I had 1gb and tried running a virtual machine (windows xp) with virtual box. 83% of my memory was used.01:57
bankixGran_Ger: OK, check with "lsmod" if the nvidia module is loaded.01:57
Matthew11jake614: Try the karmic again (as a live cd). If it works, there is an unoffical upgrade that makes the sound much better01:57
bankixGran_Ger: If not, try to load it manually.01:58
Staatsfeindrww: should i do this: http://www.joewein.de/sw/swnotes002.htm01:58
Staatsfeindrww: dont know what was meant with linux 701:58
bankixGran_Ger: Via "modprobe nvidia".01:58
Matthew11jake614: you experienced a cracking noise dont you?01:58
opoksa polacy ?01:58
toastedmilkI'm trying to connect  to the internet on a different computer, but sudo lshw -C netowrk is saying that wlan0 is disabled.  How can I fix this?01:58
Talon_using system monitor and my new machine I built to accomidate this, I now have 8gb of ram, and it's still using it ALL! gnomes system monitor shows 16% used by programs and 83% as cache01:58
jake614Matthew11: no, sound was completely gone01:58
Gran_Gerbankix, with that computer, the only problem I have, and never did before It's the freeze01:59
blakkheimTalon_: i don't think you understand how ram works in linux01:59
karpusdeluge 1.2 on ubuntu 9.10 is using up to 80-90% of my cpu while downloading torrents, is there any way to fix that? :\01:59
jake614Matthew11: i'd rather keep jaunty, sound is not an issue anymore, but i'd like to make usb devices work01:59
Matthew11jake614: Well i don't have any further idea right now02:00
blakkheimTalon_: free -m | grep buffers02:00
Talon_so does cache matter? 16+83 = 99, i assumed 99% of my ram is in use02:00
Matthew11Maybe someone else can help you02:00
Dr_WillisTalon_:  so its used as cache.. that how its supposed to work02:00
jake614Matthew11:  okay, thanks for your time!02:00
bankixGran_Ger: Hm? When does the computer freeze? I think it's blinking some times?02:00
Matthew11your welcome02:00
cornbreadly_anyone know offhand how I can pause music in banshee, to listen to some sound from a youtube video in chrome? 9.10?02:01
jake614can anyone else help with usb ports?02:01
Gran_Gerthe blinking problem was after the installation, But I fix it making a Direct installation, and making at the end the activation of the drivers02:01
joh6nni'm having some serious slowdown with my wireless connection, compared to the speeds that i had in both Hardy and Jaunty.  I've tried disabling ipv6 and a few other things, but nothing seems to help02:01
cornbreadly_what ius the usb issue?02:01
Talon_blakkheim: free -m | grep buffers shows used: 1332, Free: 667102:01
Gran_GerThe freezes, that is the actual problem is trying to see some videos02:02
blakkheimTalon_: so there's your actual usage02:02
jake614cornbreadly_: my usb devices will not work02:02
bankixGran_Ger: Sorry, I'm puzzeled now. What is your problem?02:02
rwwStaatsfeind: hmm, weird, I can't find that specific .so in the repositories. I'm out of ideas, sorry :(02:02
Gran_Gerthe freezes for that computer, the blinking for the another computer02:02
cornbreadly_ok  have you run lsusb?02:02
jake614cornbreadly_: ive tried removing the laptop battery and also tried running them from a livecd, to no avail02:02
Staatsfeindrww: ok, ty02:02
=== Z is now known as Guest52012
bankixGran_Ger: When exactly does the computer freeze? Is it reproducable?02:03
Gran_Gerbankix, let me see.02:03
jake614cornbreadly_: i just did, what should i look for?02:03
=== Guest52012 is now known as zepauloa
cornbreadly_does it look like anything you have plugged in is showing?02:03
Talon_so what is "cached" then in the system monitor?02:03
zhuzhixinhello all, quick question. I just now download a fiction with stk extension, but i don't know howto open it. Can someone give me a suggestion.02:04
cornbreadly_here is an example02:04
kuja605can anyone point me to the Ubuntu room for general chat?02:04
jake614thank you02:04
bankixTalon_: Nothing is cached in the system monitor, your RAM is used as disk cache. That's all.02:04
boss_mckuja605: #ubuntu-ot02:04
rwwkuja605, boss_mc: #ubuntu-offtopic, not -ot02:05
kuja605brilliant, cheers :D02:05
jake614Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub02:05
jake614this is what i get02:05
boss_mckuja605: apologies, i was confused by !ot02:05
zeta-Staatsfeind: do you get the error during boot? could be that /usr is not mounted at that point (if you have separate partitions)02:05
bankixjake614: Remove the device in question. Call "lsusb". Then connect the device, run "lsusb" again. Find the new line and post this.02:05
adubzzzhow can i find the ntp server of a given network02:05
Talon_so i shouldnt lose any performance if say i started a game?02:06
adubzzzthat i am currenlty on02:06
Talon_the "cached" ram gets written to disc to accomidate the program that needs ram?02:06
kuja605oh and could anyone point me to somewhere that easily explains the linux filesystem for someone whos pretty new to it?02:06
bankixTalon_: The cache will _improve_ your system performance. Nothing to worry about.02:06
bankixTalon_: Most is _read_ cache, not write cache, so the content gets just freed and overwritten when needed.02:07
jake614bankix: just did that, the lines are the exactly the same02:07
bankixjake: So, regardless if the usb device is connected or not, lsusb shows the same?02:07
Dr_Willisadubzzz:  you could nmap scan the network02:08
bankixjake614: Just to get this point sure.02:08
jake614bankix: yes thats right02:08
bankixjake614: Are there other devices listed than "Linux Foundation" root hubs?02:09
jake614bankix: no, i got two linux foundation 1.1 and one 2.002:09
Talon_so what is swap space then, it's never used, least it hasnt been since system monitor's been monitoring it02:09
=== zach is now known as Guest84878
adubzzzwhat is the linux command to display current date and time02:10
bankixjake614: Not good. This means your USB device doesn't communicate as it should. Which kind of device is it?02:10
adubzzznvm its date02:11
rwwadubzzz: date02:11
jake614bankix: right now i have a webcam plugged in, but my mouse, usb flash, and cellphone dont respond either02:11
jake614and all of them worked in the past02:11
bankixTalon_: Swap space is disk space (usually a partition on your disk) used as RAM extension, for the case you have more data than physical RAM. Of course darn slow, so normally unused.02:11
bankixjake: Hm. Maybe the USB stack is stuck. At least keyboard, camera, etc. should show up via lsusb when they're connected.02:12
jake614bankix: my mouse will blink sometimes, but it wont work, my usb flash does not blink anymore02:12
MauritianGuyelo people02:12
jake614i have tried all my ports, i have 402:13
bankixjake614: OK, does that machine have PS/2 ports for keyboard/mouse and you have a ps/2 mouse/keyboard somewhere in your trashbin?02:13
MauritianGuyi got a lil issue prior to trying to install a beta driver i got further than before but now its telling me that i need to quit X server and someting like that i got a log file with the three errors02:13
zeta-Talon_: you have 8GB ram! try loading a few large databases if you want it to swap out to disk.02:13
jake614bankix: no02:14
bankixjake614: Hm, how did you enter "lsusb" then? Or is your USB keyboard working?02:14
jake614bankix: my keyboard is built in, this is a laptop02:15

aboydhi everyone, I have a bit of a problem, and if anyone can help, that would be great. So, I have ubuntu installed on an external hard drive, and my  cousin unplugged it while it was running. I fixed the install and it now loads again, but when I click on any of the folders to access the file system, it shows that it is opening, but it never loads. ANy thoughts?02:16
Dr_WillisReal_Ubot:  from what i gather just a  few bits get changed. :)  so they appear in teh other place02:16
bankixjake614: Then connect the external keyboard and check if it shows up in "lsusb".02:16
jake614bankix: i have tried that several times02:16
Droll_Trollersonaboyd: First, kill your cousin.02:16
jake614bankix: and i dont have an external keyboard, what i have is an external mouse02:16
aboydhaha i wish I could02:16
Droll_Trollersonaboyd:  You /can!/02:17
bankixjake614: Okay, then start with the  mouse.02:17
MauritianGuyi was also wondering if you guys could help me modify the permission so i can edit a log file in etc//file.log so that i can use an application as my default user02:17
jake614bankix: ok, shall try02:17
Droll_Trollersonaboyd:  Set your mind to it.02:17
ralphv2I'm the only one here using Xircon02:17
bankixjake614: When connected solely, it should really show up in your lsusb list.02:17
zenlunaticMauritianGuy: why did you want to edit log files?02:17
Dr_WillisMauritianGuy:  log files in /etc/ ? thats odd.. normally they are in /var/log/*02:17
Real_UbotDr_Willis: I mean if I have a file containging like "secret" data and moves it to another folder. Then I remove it using shred or wipe. Will it still be able to get the data from the place the file once was located?02:17
grkblood13how do you allow remote desktop access from the cli?02:18
bankixjake614: If it doesn't, there is either a hardware problem with the mouse or some relly weired problem with the USB/mainboard chipset.02:18
aboyddroll_trollerson: no then I would be killed... anyway...02:18
Dr_WillisReal_Ubot:  shred/wipe overwrite the file several times    copy it.. then shred it. i guess.02:18

FiReSTaRTGuys, I'm trying to get my media box set up, and it's mostly working. Now these instructions indicate that I have to have my xbmc session "auth'd properly" to be able to suspend/resume with the remote.. What does that mean and how do i do it?02:19
FiReSTaRTAs of 9.11 alpha 2, XBMC uses ConsoleKit in the Karmic packages so you need to make sure your session gets auth’d properly or you’ll end up with permission denied messages in the xbmc logs when it tries to suspend.02:19

MauritianGuywell simple desktop 3D effects is basically not loading and i have to choose normal basic desktop effect02:32
bankixjake614: Very strange. And you did try not only one of your ports, but all? One on the right, one on the left, one at the back of the notebook (if there are any)?02:32
BilliardMauritianGuy: this is when the drivers are installed and enabled?02:32
Talon_how do I share my wireless internet (wlan0) with computers on a wired network (eth0)02:32

Talon_so find that in synaptic package manager?02:33
MauritianGuyso ur telling me the driver was working well then02:33

BilliardMauritianGuy: did you try the 185 driver? and how did you install it?02:34
FiReSTaRTguys if a part of the instructions says to make sure that my session gets "auth'd properly" so a certain package can suspend/resume the comp, how do i go about it?02:34
MauritianGuyBilliard,  i uninstall reboot and instell 185, id did the same for 17302:35
jake614bankix: i dont have windows anymore02:35
daftykinsTalon_: yeah the rest i don't know myself ;) hit up google for a bridge-utils guide.02:35
BilliardMauritianGuy: how did you install 185?02:35
daftykinsBilliard: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-18502:35
lucascastro /?02:35
zeta-Real_Ubot: yes, just the directory that points to the file02:35
Billiarddaftykins: that doesnt enable the driver02:35
bankixjake614: And a different live linux somewhere? I would check if it's a general problem or only related to ubuntu/your ubuntu version.02:35
daftykinsBilliard: then after run "sudo nvidia-xconfig"02:35
Billiarddaftykins: is that what MauritianGuy did?02:36
daftykinsBilliard: i dunno sorry, i just assumed you were asking how to use it.02:36
bankixjake614: Did you check the BIOS settings if you did disable something related to USB perhaps? Just guessing...02:36

arastoowhen i wnat to boot sys i cant boot and i see grub error >> file not found and grub rescue how can i do02:38

zomfgcrazyjoh6nn, could you please elaborate? =\02:40
bankixjake614: When usb devices don't show up at all, it's a very basic problem. I thought of not enough power as one reason, that's why I asked to disconnect everything and reconnect something with low power first.02:41

bankixLemme have a look...02:43
BilliardMauritianGuy: you currently have 185 installed? if so, run "gnome-appearance-properties" from a terminal, and attempt to enable the visual effects, then pastebin the errors it gives you in the terminal02:43
MauritianGuyi just reactivated 18502:43
bankixjake614: You mean how to update your BIOS?02:44
paragonci have an iso i made on my mac - but when i mount it under ubuntu - i dont see any data02:44
daftykinsjake614: hmm says to update BIOS. i wouldn't really say to run into doing that, but could be worth looking up what BIOS your laptop has and what the latest is on your laptop make's website02:44

jellowLiked: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VPNServer02:44
Billiardparagonc: how are you mounting it?02:44
jake614daftykins: how do i do that? looking up bios and the such?02:45
paragoncsudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 my.iso /media/windows02:45
bankixjake614: This is a dangerous procedure and for most laptops you'll need DOS or Windows to do the update.02:45
paragonctrying to get access to some old file data - and its driving me insane02:45
jake614bankix: i see.. is there a way to check on bios settings?02:46
bankixjake614: You'll have to ask your vendor how to do this for you laptop. You should find this informations where you'll find the new BIOS versions.02:46
Billiardparagonc: try removing the -t iso9660 part, and the /media/windows directory is empty after mounting you say?02:46
paragoncso sudo mount -o loop my.iso /media/windows02:46
Billiardparagonc: yeah02:46
bankixjake614: Just have a look at everything in your BIOS referencing "USB". USB should be enabled, USB 2.0 as well, and USB Legacy Support should be enabled.02:46

bankixdeena: You're using NAT in VirtualBox.02:59

bankixdeena: So your guest system gets for default03:00
deenaglobal system is having 192.x.x.x03:00

bankixdeena: VirtualBox acts as a normal router does, the only difference is that your gateway is and not .2.1 as usual.03:01
Dr_Willisdeena:  you may want to check the virtualbox docs on how it does the networking.  I normally set my vbox setups where they appear as a normal machine on the lan. (ip range 192.168.1.X)03:01

allyourbassany takers?03:02
deenathat is why wondering how this nat is working03:02
Blue1deena: it's magic...03:02
bankixdeena: Yes, you can't reach your guest system from outside of VirtualBox because of the NAT.03:03
deenawhat i have to do if i want to ping from global to guest03:03
=== David is now known as Guest77373
daftykinsdeena: basically when a packet comes from a VM e.g. the router between your real network 192.168.0.x will rewrite the source IP as being itself, so then the real network will pass it to the router. then the router rewrites the packet header with the destination of the guest and so it arrives there03:03
bankixdeena: VirtualBox does not set up a corresponding network device with the host's IP, it's some kind of "embedded" networking device03:03
zomfgcrazyI had a working dualboot of WinXP and Ubuntu goin, but the ubuntu install was a logical partition, so i deleted sda2 (the partition it was inside, i guess?) and now I rebooted and i get an error GRUB loading.  Error: no such partition grub rescue> _...  ..i never touched the windows install.. any ideas why it doesn't just boot into windows now and/or how i can fix it? if i boot from the ubuntu live cd it shows the windows inst03:03
daftykinsdeena: it's probably default virtualbox firewall'ing blocking ping the other way03:03
bankixdeena: In fact, VirtualBox just seeds the packages directly into the networking layer.03:04
daftykinszomfgcrazy: is it XP?03:04
bankixdeena: So you can't ping, ssh or what ever your guest from outside of virtual box when using NAT03:04
bankixdeena: If you need access to your guest system, you'll have to use bridging instead of NAT.03:04
daftykinszomfgcrazy: boot the windows CD to recovery console and run "fixboot" then "fixmbr" then it'll be pure windows again. then install ubuntu03:04
zomfgcrazydaftykins, thank you. would it take more than a few lines to explain what happened so as to not do it again?03:05
deenain case of briding i have to configure same network range only am i right03:05
bankixdeena: Then your network card acts like a network switch and you connect both, your host system and your guest, to this switch -- both getting one exclusive IP through DHCP.03:05
allyourbassanyone else having troubles with usb media not mounting ?03:05
deenaexample 192.x.x.x from to guest to global same series03:05
daftykinszomfgcrazy: i'm afraid i've no idea why GRUB was already present if you dont have ubuntu installed. that partition before was just empty really03:05
zomfgcrazydaftykins, thank you.03:06
daftykinszomfgcrazy: np. this is another option too: http://www.arsgeek.com/2008/01/15/how-to-fix-your-windows-mbr-with-an-ubuntu-livecd/03:06
bankixdeena: No, using a different IP address for you guest won't help anything. If you need to connect to your guest system, your only chance is setting up network-bridging.03:06

johnny1243coz, a few other people have had this problem but no answer03:27
wish^hmm, Dr_willis do you know of it being done?03:27
neil_dcoz_: johnny1243: could it be a dual monitor type thing.. defaulting to the wrong monitor?03:27
coz_johnny1243,  ok  then we know it works..  if you unplug the monitor the laptop screen still refuses to work?03:27
Dr_Williswish^:  nope. I avoide wubi as if it was the plague..  (a also missed the last 5 min or so of chat in here)03:27
zealiodwhat command line program can i use to grab the urls that people are loading through my proxy?03:27
johnny1243coz, let me try03:27
wish^not much has been said willis03:28
wish^thing is, i just wanted to try the new distro03:28
wish^and it seemed to be a nice option so now i wanna swap over to it permanently03:28
Dr_Williswish^:  try the tools.. or just do a clean install..03:28
jellowLiked: Did you sort out your error?03:28
LizardK|ngzealiod, wget03:28
johnny1243coz, yes03:28
Likedjellow: nah ill just use debian03:29
coz_johnny1243,  so it works now?03:29
wish^well, i can do a clean install but i dont have the install disc03:29
johnny1243coz, no03:29
coz_johnny1243,   ok   are you now on the liv03:29
Dr_Williswish^:  you can make a bootabel usb flash  if you wanted to03:29
wish^so i guess i gotta download and burn that first then03:29
zomfgcrazywhen installing ubuntu with an ubuntu livecd how do i make sure it installs ubuntu as a primary partition and not logical?03:29
johnny1243coz, still just the monitor03:29

johnny1243coz, and on the live cd03:30
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  iuse the partion manager tool in the installer to lay out my HD's exactly how i want and tell it where to mount / and /home  - i alwyas use primariy partions03:30
coz_johnny1243,   ok if you can get to the live cd  open a terminal and type   lspci | grep -i vga03:30
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis, Gparted?03:30
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  the installer has  a partionign section you use to tell it where to mount what locations where.  You could use gparted first.. then use the custome install settings in the installer03:31
zealiodLizardK|ng: no, i meant sniff what urls are being loaded...03:32
coz_johnny1243,  any luck with that command?03:32

zomfgcrazyDr_Willis, when creating a new partition, next to "Use As:" what do I select for a bootable Ubuntu partition?03:33
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  if you want sda1 to be / = you tell it to use sda1 with the mountpoint of /03:34
Dr_Willisset the filessytem to be ext3/4 or whatever you want03:34

zomfgcrazyDr_Willis, / = ?03:35
johnny1243coz, let me check03:35
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  linux basics / = the root partition03:36

Siria_CalvI need a video convert that can convert .avi and .flv to .asf. Yes I know I´ve asked before and been told to use ffmpeg, but ffmpeg doesn´t convert to the .asf format. It´ll convert to that extension, but not that format. I need that format specifically because my portable media player is having problems rewinding/fast-forwarding videos of the other supported formats.03:37
Dr_Willisk3rn:  use the 'nosplash' and remove the 'quiet' option from the kernel boot lines - perhaps. to see all messages03:37
k3rncan i define that in grubs menu.lst - or may i uninstall usplash? will those echo msgs show anyhow?03:37
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis, I don't know if i want it to be /.  i don't understand what that would mean.03:37
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  you always have a / partition . its the core of the linux filesystem03:37
Sememmonis there an issue w/ the latest karmic & wifi speed? I'm noticing very poor performance.. but seemed to be fine yesterday.03:38
johnny1243coz, 1024 by 768 for monitor laptop is ~1400 by ~1200 if I think03:38
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  normal partion layout ==>  (sda1 /) (sda2 /home) (sda3 Swap)03:38
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis, If I set it to / would that affect the winxp partition?03:38
Sememmoncoz_: =]03:38
coz_Sememmon, :)03:38
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  you make a partition and mount it as / - thats where linux installs to. Nothign to do with windows at all.03:38
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis: okay. so Ext4 or Ext3? Is there any noticeable difference for a novice such as myself?03:39
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  stick with ext4 then03:39
Siria_CalvSememmon, have you left your computer and its wifi antenna on since it worked yesterday? I have experiance sometimes that a wifi antenna that has been left on will have trouble connecting eventually after being left on too long.03:39
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  if you dont know linux basics. why are you even worrying about all this> the normal install should do fine for you03:40
Jeeveshow can I fix my GRUB2 install?  I had to repair XP, then I had to reinstall windows 7, and now I can't get GRUB to work03:40
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis: Understood.  At this point I would like WinXP to stay as the default boot partition (so if I don't touch anything it boots to windows).  Would I set that here or later?03:40
SememmonSiria_Calv: I've restarted. Also restarted the wap just to make sure. I'm getting better wifi performance on my cell phone =P03:40
Sememmontried downgrading to an older kernel .. seems to be a bit better.03:40

neil_dA mdadm raid1 doesn't seem to work on this motherboard!!  if I was to plug the drives into a cheap PCI raid card, could I boot of that raid card?03:41
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  You repartiioon/resize your drive to haev a section of it be 'unallocated' and you just tell the ubuntu installer to use the unallocated space..  thats about all there is to it.03:41
k3rnDr_Willis: wehn i use nosplash i see the bootup outputs but i can't see any of my script.03:41
coz_johnny1243,  hey guy   did you try to unplug the monitor and then reboot into the live cd?03:41
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:   its not really going to matter if its primary or not.03:41
coz_johnny1243,   both monitors attached are going to exceed the MAX_TEXTURE size  hardware limitation03:41
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  or  resize windows - make unallocated space.. partiton the unallocated space to make a / /home and swap partition then tell the installer to use them03:42
coz_johnny1243,  once installed you can set the resolutions for both monitors so that it doesnt exceed the MAX_Texture in any one direction03:42
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis: Okay.  Well, extra knowledge is never (rarely?) a bad thing. ^.^  Would I set WinXP to be default boot in GRUB here or later?03:42
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  somthing like -->  (sda1 Windows) (sda2 /) (sda3 /home) (sda4 swap)03:42
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  you tweak grub later.03:42

Dr_Willis!grub2 | Jeeves03:44
ubottuJeeves: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager in Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub203:44
johnny1243coz_, so I should set the resolution lower and install03:44
Jeevesubottu:  you suck03:44
Jeevesand for the reccord, I know it's a bot03:44
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis: I have decided to go back and tell it to just use 'largest contiguous free space' so I don't have to set up a swap.  Where would I tweak grub to change the list of boot options?03:45
rwwJeeves: have you tried https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2#Recover%20Grub%202%20via%20LiveCD on the page it linked to?03:45
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  you are confused.. it will STILL use/make a swap partition.03:45
johnny1243coz_, also about installing i wanted to have a separate , /boot, /, /home partition I have done it before and I cannot resize this huge partition in gpart03:46
coz_johnny1243,  first I would reboot with just the laptop screen into the live cd03:46
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  grub2 is confuigured by the /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/* files03:46
SememmonI've been told that others are also having recent wifi speed issues03:46
johnny1243coz_, I think I would get a blank screen03:46
johnny1243coz_,  but I will try03:46
coz_johnny1243,  ok I may not be the best person to talk with about partitioning03:46
reroreroreroHello. Is there a way to prevent Samba from scanning the LAN?03:46
Dr_Williszomfgcrazy:  that option i think will resize your windows partitions and then use the free space. (i think)03:46
zomfgcrazyDr_Willis: I am very confused. But thank you for trying. ^.^03:46
coz_johnny1243,  I would try that first just to test it  make sure the monitor is unplugged03:46
johnny1243coz_,  the screen stuff was help full03:46
johnny1243coz_,  let me reboot then03:47
coz_johnny1243,  the max texture size is unfortunately a hardware limitiation  that cannot be changed to my knowledge03:47
reroreroreroI don't trust some people on my LAN and I would like to shut off the LAN users or stop trying to ping them or whatever.03:47
reroreroreroIs it possible?03:47

coz_johnny1243,  right03:51
Armandothank you03:51
johnny1243coz_,  what should I lower it to03:51
Ademanis there any comprehensive list of default compose-key combinations anywhere?03:51
Dr_Willisrerorerorero:  by default theres no services on ubuntu - so i doubt if they are going to get to your machine and do anything.03:51

johnny1243coz_, thanks for the help03:52
AdemanFlotonoc: In my opinion 64 bit problems outweigh any advantages03:53
coz_johnny1243,  well the live cd should pick up the correct resolution  even if it is safe graphics mode you use03:53
termitorwho whan03:53
neil_dIf I was to get a cheap PCI RAID card (e.g. http://www.mwave.com.au/newAU/mwaveAU/productdetail.asp?SKU=22080353&utm_source=getprice&utm_medium=cpc) could I boot from it?03:53
FlotonocWhat do you mean?03:53
semitonesFlotonoc: it depends on what you want to use it fore03:53
Dr_WillisI cant even recall any problems ive had with 64bit in the last year+03:53
FlotonocIt outweighs?03:53
FlotonocI see.03:53
johnny1243coz_, pick it with the install or when booting up03:53
semitonesFlotonoc: it doesn't03:53
semitonesFlotonoc: I'm using it right now03:53
cvdAdeman,  only if you use linux03:53
FlotonocI heard that there are no performance changes when you go with 32-Bit over 64-Bit.03:53
Dr_WillisFlotonoc:  for normal home users.. it proberly wont matter much - unless you got 4+gb of ram.03:53
coz_johnny1243,  when booting the live cd   there should be a safe graphics mode03:53
Dr_WillisFlotonoc:  there are some gains in some cases.03:53
albechmy 64bit works flawless03:53
mickster04can i get ssh help here?03:54
johnny1243coz_, ok let me try that03:54
albechmickster04, yes, if you ask the question03:54
FlotonocSo you only see differences with 4 GB or more memory?03:54
semitonesFlotonoc: if you have more than 4GB ram, you'll have performance gains. And there are some smaller gains for 64 bit programs as well03:54
Dr_WillisOnly issue i knotive of with 64 vs 32bit - is that zsnes is 32bit only. :()03:54
One``Does Ubuntu have any kind of problems with ZIP files on a fresh install? I downloaded a torrent with about 4,500 ZIP files using Transmission and half of them are coming up as being corrupt despite no one else having this problem03:54
Siria_CalvI don´t think this is the right channel, but does anyone know of a reliable secure proxy server I can use for my web-enable programs such as my bit-torrent client and my web browser?03:54
coz_johnny1243,   but let me say that I dont use laptops  at all so my experience with video issues on them is severely limited03:54
semitonesFlotonoc: if you03:54
Ademan*but then again 64 bit binaries are twice as big and you get twice as many cache misses*03:55
Dr_WillisOne``:  ive never had any issues with zip files.03:55
Cpudan80One``: ubuntu supports zip files -- with the unzip command03:55
Dr_WillisOne``:  try using winzip or winrar in wine to access them perhaps03:55
Cpudan80One``: or with ark (kde) or file roller (gnome)03:55
One``Good idea, then I can see if they are actually corrupt03:55
mickster04well i am trying to create an ssh keyfile between a linux server (ubuntu) and a windows machine using putty. however i always get "server refused our key" no matter where i create it (puttygen) or ssh-keygen -t rsa any clues?03:55
albechSiria_Calv, squid?03:55
semitonesFlotonoc: if you're intending to install a lot of third party programs not in synaptic, you might want 32 bit for better compatibility, but other than that, might as well make full use of your hardware03:55
Cpudan80One``: the torrent might be corrupt03:55
hiexpogood evening all03:55
* Dr_Willis isent sure that 64bit bianries are 2x as large as 32bit.. is true..03:56
johnny1243coz_, well the help is appreciated03:56
mdghiexpo: hello03:56
hiexpomdg how it goes03:56
One``It's a.. I dunno what you would call it, but the torrent isn't the problem here. Something has gone wrong when it was being downloaded03:56
rwwDr_Willis: it's not03:56
coz_johnny1243,  no problem  I hope you get this resolved03:56
FlotonocI was wondering because computers I find may be less than 64-Bit.03:56
Siria_Calvalbech, can you give me the url to their home page?03:56
mdghiexpo: it goes !  yay!03:56
Dr_Willisrww:  yea. thats what i was thinking >) but i was googling for some benchmarks..03:56
johnny1243coz_, thanks03:57
albechSiria_Calv, try google squid ;)03:57
Dr_WillisFlotonoc:  theres very few issues ive seen in this channel about 64 vs 32bit ubuntu. So use what you want. If you got 4+gb ram DEFINATLy go 64bit03:57
rwwI've used 64-bit for several years now. For normal user tasks, there is no appreciable performance difference between 64-bit and 32-bit.03:57
hiexpoyah i am so tired here i lost my hard drive so been up all night fixing and reinstalling03:57
bankixOK, I'm off then. I solved my problem myself. Greetings..03:57
mdghiexpo: how did it happen?03:57
rww(except for the whole RAM thing)03:57
Dr_WillisIve notived video reencoding/converting seems a little faster for me on 64bit.. but that could also be encoder tweaks/differances also03:57
albechmickster04, and you copied the key generated on your client into ~.ssh/authorized_keys on the server?03:58
albechmickster04, and you have set the right privileges on that directory/file?03:58
cvdso there is 64bits for nothing?03:58
mickster04albech yeah the public one03:58
mythrilwhich graphical cd burners have a verify burned cd feature?03:58
hiexpoi had a lot of programs03:58
rwwDr_Willis: that's possible. Things like BOINC can be a lot faster with the right binaries too. But for email-checking, IM, etc., not so much.03:58
reroreroreroUhmm...not sure about hardware but in coding terms 64bits doesn't only mean bigger-capacity numerical storage?03:58
mdghiexpo: were you dual booting?03:58
haitiankid4lyfhello all03:58
termitorwho whan03:59
One``Downloaded WinRAR and the ZIP files open fine under WINE, but in whatever Ubuntu comes with it is saying it is corrupt.03:59
mythrilwhich graphical cd burners have a verify burned cd feature? (sorry forgot to mention Ubuntu 8.10)03:59
termitor:p , who whan test with me, a hi res webcam ?03:59
mickster04albech i ran ssh-keygen to make sure the priveledges where predone.what should they be just in case?03:59
albechmickster04, chmod 600 the file?03:59
haitiankid4lyfmy wifi suddenly stopped working03:59
reroreroreroIf so I can see how it makes video encoding run faster but barely noticeable in regular stuff.03:59
FlotonocHow would a person convert a 32-Bit OS to 64-Bit? 0.o03:59
FlotonocOr vice versa?03:59
reroreroreroBut I might be stupidly wrong of course.03:59
hiexpoya but wasnt really using it cause my dual was backtrack and i used my dvd most of the time03:59
albechmickster04, the .ssh should be 70003:59
blakkheimFlotonoc: you cant03:59
FlotonocSo when they made 32-Bit Windows Vista...04:00
haitiankid4lyfFlotonoc: if you have a 64bit system you can download some 32bit libs that help with some programs04:00
mdghiexpo: I seem to learn a lot of things the hard way :(04:00
FlotonocThey completely remade a 64-Bit version from scratch?04:00
One``Ohnoes, errors. Unexpected end of archive!04:00
mickster04albech: i dont need to restart ssh to notice the difference right?04:00
hiexpolol yep no more dual boot for me04:00
albechmickster04, it will never hurt04:00
albechmickster04, but i dont believe so04:00
reroreroreroI actually have a 64bit processor but I prefer to save myself the headache of having to use compatibility layers and whining about 64bit binaries like everyone does.04:00
mickster04albech: well that hasnt changed anything it seems04:01
hiexpoi know better to cause all these distros will run off dvd /cd04:01
albechmickster04, what does your log file say?04:01
albechmickster04, thats always a good place to start ;)04:01
Dr_WillisFlotonoc:  ive had more issues with 64 vs 32bit winjdows.. then i have 32 vs 64bit linux :)04:01

ubottucron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto  -  There is also a decent Howto at http://www.tech-geeks.org/contrib/mdrone/cron&crontab-howto.htm04:16

nvmeDr_Willis, already did that but it doesnt, i even added the appropriate settings to /etc/gdm/custom.conf, but it keeps going to vt704:17

neil_dinitrd isn't seting up my mdadm raid1 properly.. is there anything I can do about it04:18
albechmickster04, its also a good idea to set LogLevel to DEBUG while working with stuff like this, but it requires that you can find the log file ;)04:18
joh6nni'm having some serious slowdown with my wireless connection, compared to the speeds that i had in both Hardy and Jaunty.  I've tried disabling ipv6 and a few other things, but nothing seems to help04:18

domi007Billiard: i am not sure, i used wubi04:52
ultraparadigmI'm really liking kvirc04:53
EltumeDr.Willis, "certified" hardware for linux is hardware that works out of the box especially 3d graphic cards and wifi cards04:53
=== SkinnyWeeabo is now known as Bwaah

Dr_WillisEltume:  tahts your definition of the term..    certified by who exactly? its just sounds like more marketing buzzwords to me.04:53
domi007Billiard: okay, i see your point, but why would a livecd make a difference?04:54
Dr_WillisEltume:  theres people in here constantly with hardware that is supposed to work.. but has issues.. :)04:54
Out_ColdDr_Willis, Eltume, tried and tested is a better statement04:54

Billiarddomi007: ok04:55
Eltumedr.willis, AVADirect also offer Ubuntu in addition to redhat and suse04:56
Out_ColdEltume, not a bad idea if you are using linux only, but just use well supported hardware04:56
NotTooSmartBilliard: I think that would make sense since I connect using the same user in samba, and the same user via MPD04:56
Dr_WillisEltume:  well they dont have ubuntu boxed sets :) like they do redhat/suse.. but that may be because thre is not the same thing :)04:56
Eltumeout_cold, the only downside to open hardware is the limited choice04:56
ultraparadigmWell on this new laptop I decided to dual but Ubuntu and Win7 right off tha bat.  And sofar, as for ease of use, Ubuntu is winning04:56

semitonesultraparadigm: nice. what do you like about it especially04:57
Out_ColdEltume, agreed, but if thousands of users sent emails to manufacturers then maybe we'd have better choice04:57
ultraparadigmOther than games, that were made for windows, I have had 0 hassle in Ubuntu.  Everything works, even things that didn't work right in windows like my web cam and bluetooth04:57

Vladimir_Hello everyone! I'm going to try Ubuntu and wanted to know how it performs as far as BitTorrent in concerned. Is Transmission a good, stable BT client/? Will I have problems with bandwidth/firewall limitations or issues?04:58
blakkheimTMK: avoid ati, that's about it for linux-related recommendations04:58
blakkheimVladimir_: i prefer rtorrent but transmission is ok too04:59
Dr_WillisVladimir_:  transmissions is a rather basic BT client.04:59
BilliardNotTooSmart: you want x on the directories04:59
TMKnvidia's better I take it?04:59
Dr_WillisVladimir_:  it depends on what extra features you need.04:59
blakkheimTMK: yes04:59
ultraparadigmVladimir, I don't use torrents, but give Ubuntu a try anyway.  It's worked out great for me so far04:59
Dr_WillisVladimir_:  ive been using qTorrent lately - it works very well for me04:59
semitonesVladimir_: transmission is pretty fast and works very well04:59
TMKok.  Thanks.04:59
domi007Billiard: any other idea?05:00
ultraparadigmI work for the cable company, and torrents are like cuse words. lol05:00
TanthrixIs there a clever way to view all installed packages listed by catagory in Synaptic?05:00

domi007Billiard: however when I frist booted in with the older kernel (i think it is 2.6.30-14) i had the card OK, but it didn't see any networks....could this indicate that i have a hardware problem?05:01
blakkheimVladimir_: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/BluRayAndHDDVD05:02
Billiarddomi007: well it could be, but that could be a driver issue too05:02
Vladimir_thanks for the link, blakkheim05:02
semitonesultraparadigm: why don't cable companies like them? Wouldn't they get ppl to buy more expensive plans? for more bandwidth?05:02
domi007Billiard: ok, i don't know....the laptop i am using is really weird..sometimes it starts ok when i press the power, sometimes it kinda hangs before the BIOS POST screen...i really don't know, and i don't have a screwdriver for it, so i can't even open it :(05:04
cvdwe pay for something that we can use all the bandwidth we pay05:04
ultraparadigmTorrents cause lag for everyone sharing the node of the user who is using them.  Because cable uses shared bandwidth, torrents can slow the whole nighboorhood05:04
Shazamhow do I get a partition to mount upon boot. I *believe* I have a correct fstab entry, but, well its not there when I boot. Is there anything else I would need to do?05:05

ultraparadigmIt's just one of those things, we get a call "my internet is slow."  Sorry sir, it's because your nieghbor is using a zillian torrents. "I don't care, fix it!"  Puts us in an awkward position05:05
BilliardShazam: does the mountpoint exist?05:05
abu123how I repair this error05:05
semitonesultraparadigm: I'll take that, but what's the difference between dling torrents and watching netflix?05:05
BilliardShazam: run "sudo mount -a" check for errors05:05
ShazamBilliard: yes. in fact, when i mount it from terminal it works05:05
TeamColtrasemitones, nothing... although you probably have a smaller filesize from netflix05:06
semitonesultraparadigm: because it doesn't seem that fair to tell the torrent user, hey, ok you paid for this bandwidth, but please, don't use it...05:06
TeamColtraand honestly cable companies can suck it, they have enough bandwidth for everyone... they just say that so they can pump more money out of you05:06
TeamColtraHow can I do a math problem in terminal? I remember doing it before but i forget now05:06

Dr_WillisTeamColtra:  try the 'bc' command05:07

domi007good bye everyone05:09
allyourbasswell ive got a fresh install of 9.1005:09
Dr_Willisallyourbass:  every so often the automounting 'breaks' for me - untill i logout, or reboot..05:09
Dr_Willisallyourbass:  not sure why it does it05:09
ShazamBilliard: so, in fact your intuition was correct. error says, mount point does exist. should my mountpoint be an empty directory? what permissions do I need05:10
allyourbasswhen i plug my device in05:10
ultraparadigmGood question.  People who really abuse the heck out ot torrents can suck up alot more bandwidth than netflix, and at a constant rate, where as netflix is not going to be constant and over night and all day long.05:10
Quan-Timeblakkheim: how you do it ?05:10
cvdwhy the ubuntu cd dont have a boot repair option?05:10
cvdlike the others OS05:10

cvdsemitones, repair the boot?05:11
TeamColtra<ultraparadigm> Good question.  People who really abuse the heck out ot torrents can suck up alot more bandwidth than netflix, and at a constant rate <-- I am pretty sure that its not "abusing" and its actually "using them correctly"05:11

grayhanemy motherboard will take SATA or IDE hard drives, if I install one of each, can I select which one is the master ?05:20
Dr_Willisjonathan3:  you could md5 sum both of them.05:20
bouma1st why is the workspace switcher sooooo short.. ie not tall05:20
Dr_Willisbouma:  you mean why is it wide. :)05:20
boumaif you put it on a panel with more room is stays tiny... like several pixels high05:21
boumano i want to to use up more vertical space05:21
Out_Coldi was looking in the man pages, how would you use apt-get build-dep on source that you have downloaded from packages.ubuntu?05:21
Dr_Willisbouma:  you just want it bigger.. niot showing more desktops..05:21
BilliardOut_Cold: i beleive you do apt-get build-dep packagename05:21
boumaDr_willis: yes, i always just have 3x3 desktops.. but iwont use more vertical space than about 16px the 9.04 version was different it could be square05:22
Out_Coldnot sure why i didn't think of that. thanks Billiard05:22
Out_Coldi would ./configure one by one until now :o/05:23
boumaDr_Willis, and you cant use the mouse wheel to cycle through the desktops05:23
cjoneswhats a good ap to convert strip audio out of a flv convert it in to wav05:24
allyourbassthis automount crab is starting to piss me off05:24
Billiardcjones: ffmpeg05:24
Dr_Willisbouma:  i got 2 wide screen monitors now - I dont use many desktops any more05:24
Out_Coldbouma, you have to click the background with the mouse wheel, then drag left or right05:24
boumaDr_Willis, the new workspace switcher is useless05:24
* Dr_Willis rembers when external media dident 'auto mount' at all. :)05:24
* Dr_Willis is old05:24
=== semitones is now known as ubuntu
* ubuntu is old05:25
git__i get confused using more than 1 desktop05:25
boumaOut_Cold, what does that help me with? to move it on the panel, or to resize it ?05:25
Out_Coldbouma, i also think that ctrl + alt and mouse scroll changes windows05:25
=== ubuntu is now known as semitones
git__my computer is not powerful enough05:25
ultraparadigmI love my 4 desktops.  Sometimes I just relax and watch them spin around!05:25
Dr_WillisHmm. if i make my Panel 45 pixles tall. the workspace switcher grows to fill up all 45 pixles05:25
boumaOut_Cold, no ctr-al + wheel does not05:26
Out_Coldbouma, if you have compiz settings configured, you grab the desktop with the middle mouse and rotate your cube.05:26
cjonesfilliard whats the frontend for that05:26
Out_Coldbouma, you may have to set it to do so in compiz-config05:26
sage1So no one knows anything about controlling the volume in 9.10?05:26
cjonesbilliard whats the frontend for that05:26
Dr_Williscompiz Does do the virutaldesktop  differently then metacity does.05:26
Billiardcjones: idk i dont use one just do something like "ffmpeg -i file.flv -vn out.wav" faster easier than a frontend05:27
JohninLExhow do you check a HD copy that you have done dd  if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sda05:27
cvdsage1, like windows 7 do?05:27
semitonessage1: works as expected, I guess05:27
cjonesbilliard thanks so much05:27
Billiardcjones: np05:27
ultraparadigmSage,1, you have a volume question?05:27
boumaOut_cold, Dr_willis, ok ive fixed both issues, by turning "visual effects" to none. but imho i should be able to have visual effects on "some" and still have a non buggy desktop switcher app.. so this is definately a BUG05:27
cvdultraparadigm,  a mixer volume05:28
BilliardJohninLEx: you could use cmp, i beleive the command is called05:28
Dr_Willisbouma:  using NONE =  You are now using metacituy not compiz.05:28
FezzlerI have an update in my Update Manager but I can't do anything with it.  It is "grayed out".  How do I get ride of it?05:28

ultraparadigmYes I need to get an ad vanced mixer too05:28
semitonessage1: right click on the icon?05:28
sage1In Arch I could edit a setting in gconf-editor and I could control multiple channels.05:28
boumaDr_willis: ok differetnt window manager, but the taskswitcher is _completely_ differernt under the two settings05:29
JohninLExBilliard: yea that did not work thanks anyone else please05:29
ultraparadigmI downloaded a mixer but haven't tried it yet.  I want something with reverb effects for my Karaoke05:29
BilliardJohninLEx: didnt work? what was the error?05:29
Dr_Willisbouma:  yes.. you even (well ised to) use CCSM to set the # of deskjtops when using compiz.. or the gnome settings to set it with using metacity.05:29
MHz128Is it possible to run MS Office 07 using Wine in a 64bit Ubuntu install?05:29
boumaD_willis, and imho under the "some" setting, the task switcher is unusable, with a tiny hight, that cannot be increased and you cant cycle with the wheel... making it _useless_.05:29

JohninLExmissing operand after 'cmp' Billiard05:30
BilliardJohninLEx: what was the command you tried?05:30
Dr_Willisbouma:  it enlarged to fill the panel here for me. and im using compiz.. (i think)05:30
BilliardJohninLEx: you need to specify the partitions05:30
sage1Sorry. All it gives me is one slider. I cannot find anywhere to enable more05:30
JohninLExduh lol Billiard05:30
Dr_Willisbouma:  what is it doing exactly? I got 4x1 row of desktops and they elarge properly05:31
semitonessage1: hmm, that's odd. Maybe a screenshot would help the channel05:31
boumaDr_Willis, ok there is definately a bug tho. this is a virgin install, 1st boot, at first the default is desktop switcher wont grow vertically, then you switch visual to "none" and it grows, and you can switch back and it stays "grown".. but ... BUG05:32
sage1Alright. Let me take a screenshot real quick.05:32
boumaDr_Willis, perhaps i'll search to make sure its marked , it could already be patched05:32
Dr_Willisbouma:  if its a new install.. you may want to update/upgrade.. it may be fixed05:32
JohninLExthanks Billiard  that was the trick have a great night, morning, afternoon.05:32

boumaDr_willis, in case you wondered, i have had this personal desktop setup which im really used to and love since like.. using lfs before gentoo existed.. where i have a non expanding autohiding panel with only a desktop switcher on the middle right, and the window selector in the upper right, and i get rid of all bars at the bottom.. many many advantages. your eyes track down as you read leaving more realestate and content to the edge. + fl05:37
boumaing the mouse to upper right and wheel to cycle tasks, and middle left +wheel to cycle desktops ... its nirvana for me05:37
iflemaFezzler in a terminal try try to install the greyed out app(s) and itll list whats required then...05:37

roopeshvthe problem is not with the grub, but with the problem happens after updating to a newer kernel, so problem must be with update changing something06:21
NotTooSmartBlue1: I guess I never checked it in the middle, so all I ever so was the beginning with most free, and then the end with most used for what seemed like no reason06:21
iflemaroopeshv.... why not make some room and do a native install... ive a better idea....06:21
Blue1NotTooSmart: yeah its designed to do that...06:21
roopeshvi can, but will lose warranty, so have to wait for warranty to be void, anyway it is not like i am new to ubuntu, using ubuntu since 5.1006:22
Blue1NotTooSmart: but trust me, the memory will be there if you run oo or some other memory gobbling app06:22
jazonknightthiers no restore option yet in ubuntu is thier?06:22
NotTooSmartBlue1: its a server06:22
NotTooSmartBlue1: mpd or ushare is the most mem using prog I run06:22
CVirusjazonknight: what do you need a restore for ?06:22
Blue1NotTooSmart: ahh I have only run server once - to see if I could get it to install on a 1 gig usb flash drive - for run - and yes I did make it!06:23
jazonknighti was curious is thier option like windows that undos chnages to a time if u can problems?06:23
Blue1jazonknight: like the windows system/restore function?06:24
blakkheimjazonknight: no06:24
iflemaroopeshv fair enough.....06:25
NotTooSmartBlue1: that machine is a 2.40ghz celeron w/ 1gb im probably gonna install server on a 450 mhz pIII with 390mb ram I pulled out of the garbage :-P06:25
roopeshviflema: so any idea on solving the problem?06:25
* iflema is thinking GO.... and wipeout winblows while ya @ it.....06:25
iflemaroopeshv no....06:25
Blue1jazonknight: I'm not aware of anything like that -- like they say - the great thing about linux is that you're your own sysadmin - the bad thing about linux is -- you're your own sysadmin -- usually if you can get console, you can unmuck it06:25
roopeshvso any one who can tell me what to do if kernel panics or i am in grub shell, and have no access to grub menu?06:26
Blue1roopeshv: dunno - beyond my knowledge level - sorry06:26
iflemaroopeshv mention wubi.. maybe wubi?!?06:27
roopeshvBlue1: no problem, this is my first time in 4 years of ubuntu, that i came across kernel panic, so i have no clue either06:27
Dr_Willissounds like some hardware issues to me really roopeshv .06:28
=== lewis is now known as Lewix
Dr_Willisroopeshv:  somthing just seems.. odd...06:28
* Dr_Willis has to wonder what 'warrenty' says you cant reinstall...06:28
Blue1roopeshv: can you look at the system log or boot log?  there might be clues there.06:29
roopeshvDr_Willis: but it works, as soon as i install ubuntu, and stops working, as soon as i update my kernel, so i hardly think it is hardware06:29
h0rnmanroopeshv: last time I saw a kernel panic after grub was on a botched upgrade from 8.04 to 8.10...maybe I missed it, but have you done anything that would qualify as "this could really hose things if it went wrong?"06:29
Blue1oh yeah never upgrade - backup /etc/ and /home/ and do a fresh install06:29
h0rnmanyeah...live and learn, I guess  :)06:30
Dr_Willisroopeshv:  id let memtest run a bit to verify..   it would seem very odd that  the last dozen or so kernel updates would all ahve the same issue..06:30
roopeshvh0rnman: i usually do normal web dev and desktop dev on this comp, so nothing to mess with drivers or kernel06:30
Blue1ibm's 2 rules to guarenteed success with computers:  rule 1:  always have a path back to the way it was, before you messed it up.  Rule 2:  always follow rule 106:30
h0rnmanok...then this is going to sound silly, but what was the last thing you were working on before this started?06:31
Lewixwhat's the command to see the list of my partitions06:31
Blue1okay nearly pumpkin time for me - night folks06:31
LewixI tried fdisk -l06:31
Out_Coldfdisk -l06:31
roopeshvhmm, i was doing plone dev, and django development06:31
Lewixit did not work06:31
Out_Coldsudo fdisk -l06:32
jazonknighti was googleing booting kernal from grub06:32
Lewixright- didn't think of sudo06:32
quentinhi all. I need help with a disk mount06:32
h0rnman'hmmm' indeed06:32
quentinI followed instructions online and get an error with mount -a06:33
LewixOut_Cold: how do I see the space occupied by the different partitions. Also, what's sda06:33
h0rnmanare you using the default ubuntu kernel or did you roll your own?06:33
=== SportChick is now known as essy
jazonknightsda usally means its a scsi/sata harddrive06:33
wikkedfinhow do i install libssl-dev on ubuntu server 9.10?06:33
roopeshvh0rnman: i use everything form the repos, nothing compiled by me and installed06:34
Out_ColdLewix, if you want a visual, use gparted. sda is the hard drive, sda1 is equiv to c:/ sda2 = d:/06:34
quentini did the mount before on intrepid and now I'm on karmic and it's not working06:35
iflemaroopeshv id be running a persistent live usb environment until that warranty runs out.... but i may be off-topic ;)06:36
h0rnmanroopeshv: can you get to the drive in a liveCD environment and read your /boot/grub/menu.lst file?06:36
=== essy is now known as SportChick
h0rnmanthat may provide some clues as to what grub is trying to do06:36
roopeshvactually, i reinstalled kubuntu, so i lost all the things, but wanted to be ready if i have to come across the problem again06:37
roopeshvso can't06:37
h0rnmanah...that's unfortunate :)06:37
quentinjust let me know if you can help me with the disk mount on karmic and I can wait for you to help06:37
bullgardquentin: Please put a specific question in this channel. Nobody wants to answer using a long-winded speech.06:38

brophatOut_Cold so if I install UNR 9.04 I would be able to imediatley upgrade to 9.10 ?06:41
Lewixnow, i would like to enlarge my linux partition. how do I go about it06:41
Out_Coldbrophat, yes but i would just install 9.10 as it would take 2 times longer to do other way06:41
brophatOut_Cold I mean using the auto upgrader06:41
iflemaquentin fstab?06:41
brophatOut_Cold long story, but I gotta put UNR on mem stick using mac06:42
quentinDr_Willis, edbian: that worked! thanks so much06:42
Dr_Willisquentin:  it helps to mount the righht filesystem :)06:42
brophatand with mac only way to do that is with 9.04 which came in img file06:42
quentinyes. silly me06:42
jazonknight9.04 fully support macbook pro?06:43
brophatjazonknight no dun think so. i am using mac to make the bootable usb stick with unr on it06:43
Out_Coldbrophat, i am pretty sure its possible. the update app is there. as long as you enable through synaptics options06:43
Dr_Willisuse a live linux cd on the mac. :) uise the usb-creator tool.06:44

GhostWolfOut_Cold if you're talking about the install of gnome-ppp i've followed the instructions to install i've done the first part and get an error and told me to check the config.log file which is why i pasted the pastebin link06:53
edbianpriya, Please being your posts with my name like I'm doing for you06:53
Dr_Willisapt-cache search ssh   :)06:53
edbianpriya, What command are you trying to run with this launcher?06:53
edbianpriya, Is it graphical or terminal based?06:53
Out_ColdGhostWolf, i misread that file, why are you pasting the ./configure file? what is the error you receive exactly?06:54
priyaedbian, im new to linux client.x8606:54
priyaedbian ,the command is client.x8606:55
AlienDKOkay, I have installed OpenSSH server on my ubuntu box06:55
AlienDKWhat now? :S06:55
AlienDKSorry for being noob:(06:55
edbianpriya, :)  What do you want the launcher to do?06:55
GhostWolfi don't know Out_Cold it has something to do with the c++ i did it lastnight and i don't understand anything the config.log file reason i posted the pastebin info is from the config.log file...06:55
jazonknightAlienDK: try to connect from windows?06:55
Dr_Willis client.x86 - what a  descriptive name... :)06:55
AlienDKwith winscp?06:56
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  see if you can connect  'ssh localhost'06:56
edbianpriya, If you ran that in a terminal what would happen?06:56
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  then run winscp and give it the ip of the linux box and user name/pass and see if it sees stuff06:56
darkfuneralanyone know a tool like hidam (hierarchical data editor)?06:56
priyaedbian, i want the launcher to launch this executable in terminal window06:56
iflemaGhostWolf all you need is built in allready... has been for years.... its just not a gui... but it should get u online to install gnome-ppp from the repos.as far as i understand.06:56
AlienDKwhere do I do ssh localhost? terminal?06:57
edbianpriya, Then in the launcher menu choose "launch in terminal"  That should keep the terminal window open.  I'm not familiar with that particular command.06:57
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  err.. whee else could you do it at? ;)06:57
jazonknightcould be magic06:57
Out_ColdGhostWolf, run the command again and try to get the exact error. It may be that you need to install build-essentials. Is this the first time you have tried compiling from source?06:57
darkfunerali didn't know you could ssh localhost, says port 22 close on my end06:57
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  yes.. termianl. :)06:57
AlienDKcmd in windows? sorry, as I said before, Imma noob :(06:57
Dr_Willisdarkfuneral:  thats odd.06:57
edbianpriya, Is that helpful?06:57
priyaedbian,it run fine when i go into termianl and go into my cd were the file is and enter the ./ client.x86    it runs fine than06:57
FloodBot1AlienDK: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.06:58
GhostWolfiflema its not built in on ubuntu 9.10 i can't install it without an internet connection im on dial up so i had to download the file on a windows computer which im using now06:58
Dr_Willisthe ssh localhost is a ;'test' to be sure it worked. :) if ya can connect.. then winscp should be able to.06:58
edbianpriya, Oooo, ic06:58
priyai have tried that but the terminal window shuts down right away06:58
iflemaGhostWolf gnome-ppp is not built in there are terminal apps/scripts that connect dialup modems06:59
edbianpriya, the launcher starts in your home directory.  You're skipping the steps of navigating the launcher to the cd drive.06:59
GhostWolfOut_Cold its first time installing gnome-ppp as i mentioned i had to download the gnome-ppp file from this windows computer i have i rather use my nix box and only connection i have is dial up06:59
edbianpriya, I suggest putting that executable in /usr/local/bin/  Anything in there can be run no matter where the terminal is using just the name of the file.  Does that make sense?06:59
Out_ColdGhostWolf, what about compiling anything?? you need gcc which is found in build-essentials if you have never built source before07:00
edbianpriya, Then you can run the program without the CD!07:00
GhostWolfiflema well im maibnly trying to get my modem to be enabled i can't do anything until i get gnome-ppp as i found in few documents online07:00
priyaedbian ,oh help out how do i do  copy into thier07:00
iflemaGhostWolf pon and poff or similar... /etc/ppp/peers /etc/ooptions /etc/pap-secrets... its been a while but i can help if that dosent07:00
GhostWolfOut_Cold im not building anything07:00
AlienDK"Network error: Connection refused."07:01
Out_ColdGhostWolf, the file you pasted is a configure file??07:01
jazonknightAlienDK: from ssh localhost or winscp?07:01
Out_ColdGhostWolf, Invocation command line was07:01
Out_Cold  $ ./configure07:01
priyaedbian, this is were this fodler with this file is right now /home/desktop/Desktop/RQC07:02
iflemaGhostWolf external modem?07:02
GhostWolfOut_Cold no its the log file from when i typed ./configure and it gave me the error message that has something to do with c++ which told me to look in the config.log file07:02
jazonknightAlienDK: do u know root user name and password?07:02
GhostWolfiflema no its not an external modem07:02
iflemaGhostWolf ooo07:02
AlienDKYes, but nvm. I am too dumb to do stuff.07:02
nomad111hi all does anyone here use phpMyAdmin07:02
Out_ColdGhostWolf, that configure file is used to build a make file from source code. you need a compiler such as gcc to produce it07:03
jazonknightAlienDK: i waas going to suggest try logging in with root07:03
Dr_Willisactually with ssh its possible that direct logging in as root is disabled.07:03
AlienDKI did07:03
iflemaGhostWolf seriously but... all you need is ready to go... no downloads... but configuring that internal mode is another issue...07:03
AlienDKbut nvm07:03
iflemaGhostWolf modem07:03
AlienDKI'll try to find another way to do this07:04
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  its possible the windows firewall is blocking things..  this is on a local lan?07:04
jazonknightAlienDK: thiers always usb key07:04
AlienDKUSB keys sucks07:04
AlienDKYes this is a local network07:04
* Dr_Willis points out that SSH is worth learning.07:04
jazonknightAlienDK: it is turn it off to test07:04
Dr_WillisAlienDK:  so 'ssh localhost' did work?  should get you back to just a terminal/prompt.07:05
Out_Coldssh is godly XD07:05
priyaedbian , how  do i go about moving it into that folder07:05
GhostWolfiflema im not configuring my modem im getting it to get it enabled i've searched on how to get dial up to work in ubuntu and i found 2 documents well 1 and someone gave me another one saying i need to enable the modem07:05
AlienDKjust a sec07:06
zomfgcrazy*yawns* i am going to bed, now.  goodnight, #ubuntu.07:06
Out_ColdGhostWolf, you probably need a specific driver and the gnome-ppp c++ issues is something you shouldn't worry about07:06
AlienDKThis is what I get when I do 'ssh localhost' in terminal. http://pastebin.com/m17449b1507:06
GhostWolfOut_Cold all i know is when i did the ./configure in the folder it told me something about c++ not gcc just a sec and i can tell you exactly what the outcome is when i did the ./configure07:06
Out_ColdGhostWolf, gcc compiles c++ code.. trust me on that07:07
iflemaGhostWolf m8 good luck... that may be a new approach but sounds wrong to me... whats the modem model/manu?07:07
GhostWolfiflema i don't know i just know the chipset says conexant or however its spelled07:07
iflemaGhostWolf could be worse.... give me a min....07:08
Out_ColdAlienDK, if you type exit, you should logout of ssh07:08
AlienDKConnection to localhost closed.07:08
priyaedbian , u thier07:08
GhostWolfiflema on a site that gives a list of modems it shows conexant is one of them i can use07:08
Out_ColdGhostWolf, can you lshw in linux?07:08
iflemaGhostWolf laptop or tower?07:09
GhostWolfOut_Cold i don't know but im going to copy the outcome from the ./configure if you just give me a moment07:09
GhostWolfdesktop/tower iflema07:09
AlienDKbut nevermind07:10
Out_ColdAlienDK, that was an ssh login ;)07:10
iflemaGhostWolf you get ya hands on an external (no cheap these days by the way) youll be on i 2sec flat07:10
Out_ColdGhostWolf, i think you should go the way of iflema on a driver search. but if you want to learn how to properly build source I would love to give a lesson ;)07:11

Out_ColdGhostWolf, possibly then, but we can't tell with out more info from your ubuntu box. if you would like instructions to complete your ./configure i can give you a list07:13

h4ro_Cool, I have a problem with my graphics card drivers. :[07:13

jazonknighth4ro_:  k whats wrong?07:14
sumodunofor my conky how do i remove the frames around the graphs (i.e the CPU chart)?07:14
GhostWolfiflema my main problem is getting my modem to Enable.. i don't have a way to do it and i don't have a network settings or ubuntu 9.10 doesn't have it and i have even been told by someone here lastnight i'd most likely need to have gnome-ppp installed07:15
h4ro_I have kind of an obscure graphics card. It's an ATI Mobility HD 4650.07:15
Slartsumoduno: there's nothing in the manual?07:15
h4ro_jazonknight: I've been googling the correct way to install the drivers, and I've had no luck.07:15
jazonknighth4ro_: have u done updates?07:16
sumoduno<Slart> manual?07:16
GhostWolfOut_Cold as i said if you please can just give me a minute i only have one monitor and able to switch back n forth to my windows computer to my ubuntu computer if you can just hold up one more minute i will give you the pastebin of the outcome when i did the ./configure for gnome-ppp.. sorry but please be patient with me here07:16
Slartsumoduno: http://conky.sourceforge.net and then there's probably a man page or two.. "man conky" might be a good start07:16
Out_ColdGhostWolf, another issue i can think of is that when you go to ./compile that, you will be missing lots of dependency packages that you will also need to install and possibly compile07:16
jazonknighth4ro_:  thiers a update manager which usally contain drivers from ati/nvidia u need to get07:17
h4ro_jazonknight: Just finished, yeah. I believe I'm up to date. I'm not sure to check versions and such though.07:17
Out_ColdGhostWolf, it's ok. i know what the error is and why it is07:17
jazonknighth4ro_:  what options do u get in system tab then administration then hardware drivers?07:17
jazonknighth4ro_:  do u see option to activate ati drivers?07:18
GhostWolfOut_Cold how do you know what the error is? i didn't show you what the outcome is yet, just let me show you first and then you can further help me07:18
Slartsumoduno: you can also try #conky07:18
h4ro_jazonknight: It's searching07:18
h4ro_jazonknight: AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver. When I tried that before, It had an error07:19
jazonknightbefore u updated??07:19
iflemaGhostWolf take a look @ /etc/ppp/peers/provider07:19
h4ro_Jazonknight: Yeah, but it is still erroring. It says /etc/X11/xorg.conf is invalid.07:19
neil_dwhy does a raid1 on sata drives never boot when there is only one drive?07:20

priyacan some one explain how we  can move a file into  usr/bin07:21
iflemaOut_Cold found long ago and yes many tears :)07:21
Out_Coldpriya, typically "sudo cp /path/to/your/file /usr/bin/07:22
jazonknighth4ro_:  not sure what esle to tell you that as far as i usally get unless thiers more updates07:22
Slartpriya: sudo mv somefile /usr/bin     should work07:22
h4ro_I can doublecheck.07:22
h4ro_I know I'm not on 10.04.07:22

h4ro_jazonknight: Oh, I see.07:23
jazonknightnot stable is ur problem h4ro_07:23
jazonknightmy opinion07:23
h4ro_jazonknight: I'm on 9 still.07:23
Out_Coldjazonknight, a hint is that the numbers are coded to the year and month. 10.04 = april 201007:23
jeffmrcan someone help me test some sharing?07:24
jazonknighth4ro_: idk07:24
h4ro_jazonknight: Hmm...07:24
Out_Coldjeffmr, share what and how?07:24
GhostWolfiflema did you get my message? i sent a private message to you07:24
priyai get error  No such file or directory07:25
Out_Coldpriya, bad syntax.. what is the file you are trying to move?07:25
jazonknighth4ro_:  what video card model again?07:25
h4ro_jazonknight: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 465007:26
Out_Coldpriya, can you run locate client.x8607:26
priyaim new to linux what is the command07:26
jazonknighth4ro_:  i was checking ubuntu support site about ati drivers07:27
Out_Coldlocate client.x8607:27
drazakHello there, I'm running 9.10 with linux-server on a 32bit machine and have 4 gig of memory installed, PAE and HIGHMEM64G are definitely on, any idea why I still cannot access the last gig of memory?07:27
h4ro_I'm googling the error.07:27
drazakI see all 4gig of memory in the bios07:28
h4ro_jazonknight: xorg.conf is blank.07:28
jazonknighth4ro_:  it seems like s generic error try this link to support site https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RadeonDriver#Will%20It%20Work%20On%20Your%20Card?07:28
jazonknighth4ro_:  vi it07:28
h4ro_jazonknight: vi?07:29
nomad77drazak: afaik 32bit has a 3gb mem limit,reqs 64bit for > 3gb ram07:29
Dr_Willisdrazak:  some of the memory is resergved for the hardware to use - if i recall corrctly.07:29
Dr_Williseven with PAE and highmem64g enabled. theres still some reserved07:29
jazonknighth4ro_:  in terminal vi the locaton of ur xorg.conf see ifs has text in it07:29
priyawhat is the terminal command to locate file07:29
Out_Coldpriya, it's "locate"07:29
Out_Coldpriya, "locate client.x86"07:30
jazonknightOut_Cold: wow i never knew that lol07:30
drazakDr_Willis: that's rediculous, even with the 128 for video there should be another 894 meg floating around07:30
jazonknightthxs btw07:30
drazakDr_Willis: that's a hell of a lot to go missing07:30
h4ro_jazonknight: It does.07:30
drazakor you know, some odd ammount like that07:31
jazonknighth4ro_:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI check this site about that driver07:31
Dr_Willisdrazak:  ive read up on this topic befor. so im not sure where it all goes.. but SOME is defaintly taken/reserved for hardware07:32
=== Ferris- is now known as Ferris`away
drazakDr_Willis: so have I, and I have a machine in the other room where I have 3.75gb07:32
Out_Coldpriya, do you get more than a few lines??07:32
priyai tried that i get nothing in return i even tried the folder its in it wont even locate the folder07:32
Dr_Willisdrazak:  all ic an say is that it could be due to bios's not being set up to allow for the larger ram07:32
Out_Coldpriya, where is this folder? where is the file you want to move?07:33
drazakDr_Willis: I checked around in there, didn't see anything07:33
jazonknightOut_Cold:  how can i locate within a specfically dir or does it do that automatically?07:33
Dr_Willisdrazak:  ive seen lots of articals on it. but it also depends on the different OS's .  heres one mentining windows that enabled 3gb of 'user mode memory'  but ive no idea on how pae/highmem affects things.07:34
priyafolder is here /home/desktop/Desktop i want to move the file in this folder to usr/bin07:34
Out_Coldjazonknight, i usually pipe through grep ie: locate firefox | grep /bin/07:34
Dr_Willisdrazak:  i did see some benchmakrs on 64bit vs 32bit + PAE and so on.. i think their summary was 'use 64bit' at the end07:34
xiambaxusually your best bet. 6407:35
Dr_WillisUbuntu 32-bit, 32-bit PAE, 64-bit Kernel Benchmarks07:35
Out_Coldpriya, can you please then type this? ls /home/desktop/Desktop07:35
xiambaxdownside is you have less package support for 64 bit07:35
drazakDr_Willis: except I can't use a 64 bit kernel with 32bit hardware, I assume07:35
Dr_WillisI can only think of a few packages ive seen that dont come in 64bit07:35
jazonknight64bit run 32bit apps slower sometimes only down fall i c or they wont work in 64bit07:35
tonyyarussoxiambax: that's hardly true these days07:35
xiambaxWell i mean for small projects07:36
jazonknightcisco vpn.... doesnt07:36
h0rnman|recompildoes anyone have an idea as to why a .deb package generated by checkinstall would have problems overwriting an Icon (.png) file?07:36
xiambaxthat dont have lots of devs and what not07:36
tonyyarussoxiambax: such as?07:36
Out_Coldh0rnman|recompil, permissions issues?07:36
Dr_Willisdrazak:  this 'part of the 4gb reserved; i think is why a few yrs back many windows machines did not bother with 4gb but stopped at 3gb. there was to much just getting lost.07:36
xiambaxtonyyarusso, until recently boxee had no support07:36
xiambaxmt-daap was the most recent one i tried that had no 64bit support07:36
xiambaxmt-daapd i mean07:37
h0rnman|recompilshouldn't be...I've tried running the whole process as root and get the same issues07:37
CVirusHow can I run a python script everytime I login into my gnome session ?07:37
priyaOut_Cold, ok i did that07:37
Out_Coldh0rnman|recompil, not sure then07:37
drazakDr_Willis: so then the question is, can I run a 64bit kernel on 32bit hardware07:37
Dr_Willisdrazak:  proberly not07:37
Myrttih0rnman|recompil: because that's what the software developer of the app you've packaged wanted to? perhaps it has the icon in it...07:38
jazonknightdrazak: it may be 32bit hardware but most likely have 64bit support07:38
Out_Coldpriya, can you paste the output in pvt or pastebin?07:38
eueuHello, is it possible to modify an image in a PDF file, as it is possible to extract it with pdfimages? Is there any tool that can put it back after I modified it without affecting its size?07:38
Dr_Willisdrazak:  whats your exct cpu?07:38
Rahimi use jaunty and was checking sources.lst file and i found this 'deb http://in.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ intrepid-backports main restricted universe multiverse07:38
Rahim' as backports repo. SHouldnt it be jaunty-backports?07:38
tonyyarussoxiambax: mt-daapd has a 64-bit package in the repos.07:38
Dr_Williseven my old box's are 64bit thse days07:38
xiambaxI couldnt find any07:38
drazakDr_Willis: Intel Core 2 T560007:38
xiambaxEither way. I got it working07:38
Dr_Willisdrazak: Hmm.. you SURE thats not a 64bit cpu?07:39
Brokenhello all, is anyone familiar with iFuse?07:39
drazakit does support 64bit07:39
liouyshow to install php and sqlite07:39
xiambaxI just used the daap pluggin for rhythmbox07:39
jazonknightdrazak:  make sure 64bit is enabled in bios sometimes can be an issue07:39
priyai have never used Xchat  u want me to paste right in here were i type07:39
tonyyarussoxiambax: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=mt-daapd&searchon=names&suite=karmic&section=all07:39
xiambaxwhich finally got patched07:39
drazakjazonknight: I didn't see it in there07:39
Dr_Willisdrazak:  i was about to ask how old that thing is..  even my 4 yr old box is 64bit07:39
Rahimshouldnt backports for jaunty be from karmic and not intrepid?07:39
blakkheimjazonknight: lol.. i don't think that's how it works07:39
drazakjazonknight: is there anyway to do a change over without getting another iso?07:39
xx12racexxhey whats up guys?07:39
MyrttiRahim: no, they should be from jaunty07:39
jazonknightdrazak:  thier are 2 seprate installs for 32bit and 64biy07:39
RahimMyrtti: so in that kink it should be jaunty-backports, right?07:40
drazakjazonknight: I know, is there anyway to switch without completely reinstalling?07:40
Theresahi can someone help me?07:40
Out_Coldpriya, it's not really welcomed in the main to paste lots of lines... you can double click my name i think and paste there07:40
Dr_Willisdrazak:  quote from the artical url i posted --> the Ubuntu 64-bit kernel that often ended up being leaps and bounds better than the 32-bit kernel.07:40
xiambaxTheresa, be more specific07:40
sebsebseb!ask |  Theresa07:40
ubottuTheresa: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)07:40
jazonknightdrazak: non that i know of07:40
Dr_WillisUnless you have technical or business reasons for not migrating to 64-bit Linux with compatible hardware, there is no reason to stick around with a 32-bit kernel and worrying about physical address extension.07:41
Out_Coldpriya, just /msg Out_Cold <your paste>07:41
drazakDr_Willis: I'm going to switch to 64 bit07:41
drazakDr_Willis: I'm just wondering if there's a way to do it without burning another cd07:41
xiambaxWhen the next release rollout for ubuntu?07:41
MyrttiRahim: yes. I guess you've upgraded from intrepid to jaunty? the upgrade process always disables extra repos07:41
xiambaxDidnt karmic just come out a few months back?07:42
jazonknightxiambax: apirl07:42
Dr_Willisxiambax:  the version #'s aee the dates..07:42
Myrttixiambax: april07:42

ubottuxiambax: Lucid Lynx is the codename for Ubuntu 10.04, due April 2010 - Lucid is NOT released and is NOT stable - Discussion and support in #ubuntu+107:42
h0rnman|recompilMyrtti:  I don't think so, but you have given me an idea...07:42
jazonknighti win07:42
sebsebsebxiambax: End of April07:42
Dr_Willis10.04 = April 201007:42
MyrttiDr_Willis: you need a new cd.07:42
RahimMyrtti: thank you07:42
Brokenhello all, is anyone familiar with iFuse?07:42
Dr_WillisMyrtti:  i do? :)07:42
Theresai am trying to install 9.10 and the disk runs but when i try to install it stops on the wallpaper and freezes... i have tried running in various run modes to no avail07:42
RahimmyloX: any offline dictionary for linux?07:42
tonyyarussodrazak: you could use usb instead of a cd too07:42
drazaktonyyarusso: still need to download it07:43
RahimMyrtti: any offline dictionary for linux?07:43
tonyyarussodrazak: correct07:43
MyrttiRahim: i wouldn't know.07:43
sebsebsebTheresa: Ubuntu ISO's can be checked to make sure the download itself is fine,   Then there's also a disk check on the psyical CD that will check if the psyical disk is ok or not.07:43
Rahim!ask artha07:43
tonyyarussoTheresa: also, if it's a graphics problem you could try the !alternate cd as well07:44
Theresai ran those checks as well as a memory test and everything appears to be fine07:44
sebsebsebTheresa: and  if your ISO is ok, you can try burning the contents slower to another CD07:44
Theresai downloaded the iso, so i am unsure what the alternate is07:44
sebsebsebTheresa: still got the ISO?07:44
tonyyarusso!alternate | Theresa07:45
ubottuTheresa: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD.  Look for the link on the Ubuntu download page - See also !minimal07:45
sebsebsebTheresa: if so check it07:45

g0susup guys07:45
g0suanyone feel like talking a noob through installing linux based games on ubuntu?07:46
sebsebsebg0su: not exactly, but  there is quite a lot in the repo, that you can install easilly07:46
Out_Coldg0su, use the software installer07:46
g0sunot windows games via wine07:46
ubottuPlease try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!07:46
sebsebsebg0su: your on 9.10?   if so have a look in software centre,  if on a earlier version  look in add/remove.   and then for even more stuff,  look through Synaptic07:47
Out_Coldg0su, in the default install, use the software centre or use synaptics and enable multiverse/universe repositories from menus07:47
sebsebsebOut_Cold: I think those are enabled already in 9.1007:48
g0suoh, i'll have alook07:48
g0surocking Kubuntu07:48
g0sui'm not talking about the crappy default games though07:49

Out_Coldg0su, lots of first persons, rpgs, and others07:49

g0suget to know some peeps07:50
sebsebsebg0su: and if your on Kubuntu you don't have the software centre I think,   by the way #kubuntu exists07:50
DexterLBcan I make windows that match certain rules to be without a close button, etc, without compiz?07:51
jamiehid3, how can I change the applications menu icon?07:51
Theresawhere can i download the alternate cd iso?07:51
sebsebsebg0su: this is a support channel, if you want to try and get to know some people on IRC who use Ubuntu, try #ubuntu-offtopic07:51
DexterLBthe only way I seem to be able to do it is with the compiz rules plugin, but I hate compiz.07:51
g0sui know it's a support channel07:51
sebsebsebTheresa: http://releases.ubuntu.com/9.1007:52
Theresathank you07:52
sebsebsebTheresa:  in that list of files is also the md5sum and sha1sum codes, for the ISO checking07:52
sebsebsebTheresa: your ISO needs to have the same code, for it to be a good download07:52
Theresahow do  i check that?07:52

Myrttisebsebseb: remember you can use > too for the bot commands ;-)07:54
petsoundsDexterLB, you can use gconf-editor07:54
jamieHow do I change the start button icon? The one next to applications, I don't want a whole new icon set. I want to change it manually.07:54
sebsebsebMyrtti: that's true, and sometimes that's better really07:54
ardchoillejamie: I wrote a tutorial on that.. hold on..07:54
DexterLBpetsounds: and?07:54
jamieOKay ardchoille, thanks.07:54
Dr_Willisjamie:  the tool 'ubuntu-tweak' lets you change it with just a few clicks.07:54
jamieHahha, hello again Dr willis.07:55
ardchoillejamie: http://ardchoille42.blogspot.com/2009/09/how-to-change-menu-icon-in-ubuntu-904.html07:55
petsoundsDexterLB, go to apps>metacity>general>button layout07:55
jamieI tried it, it never did anything.07:55
Dr_Willisjamie:  it worked for me last night,07:55
Dr_Willisjamie:   if you change icon themes.. it will change back i recall07:55
ardchoillejames: Dr_Willis has good advice, ubuntu-tweak is probably better than my tutorial07:55
dude_anyone version to 9.10??07:55
DexterLBpetsounds: but that would change it for all windows, no?07:56
Dr_Willisdude_:  Huh?07:56
jamieI already tried it though, it restarted the panel, and nothing ever happened. it was the same icon.07:56
jamieProbably something on my part, what do you think I could have done wrong?07:56
Myrttiardchoille: and ubuntu-tweak is a 3rd party tool...07:56
Dr_Willisjamie:  i did not have to restart the panel i think.. let me try it07:56
petsoundsDexterLB, all windows07:56
ardchoilleMyrtti: Ah, yes07:56
ardchoillejamie: Give my tutorial a go07:56
DexterLBpetsounds: and what if I want for specific window?07:56
jamiekkszysiu, WIll do.07:56
petsoundsDexterLB, idk, sorry. but keep asking somebody will know the answer07:58
sebsebsebdude_: Do you want to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10?07:58
Dr_Willisjamie:  odd.. i changed the icon on my netbook.. but cant get it to change on the desktop box. :)08:00
ardchoillejamie: The method I used for changing the panel icon is the same method used in ubuntu tweak, and it doesn't work for all icon themes for some reason08:00
Dr_Willisardchoille:  that may be my issue then08:00
Dr_WillisI got so many other themes and stuff installed.. its scary08:01
ardchoilleI'm thinking that not all icon themes check ~/.icons08:01
Dr_Willisardchoille:  so that may be why i saw it 'revert' when i changed themes..08:01
DexterLBpetsounds: http://blogs.gnome.org/metacity/2008/11/02/window-matching/08:01
xjolynnxIs there a way I can broadcast my webcam on a flash website with ubuntu?08:02
xiambaxxjalynnx, www.justin.tv08:02
ardchoilleDr_Willis: The only other method, while quite messy, does work for all icon themes.. change the images in /usr/share/themes/$THEME08:02
xiambaxand stickam.com08:02
xiambaxsorry. live.yahoo.com i mean08:03
Ferrissokay guys. I just tried to upgrade from jaunty to karmic, my install wont start (i closed out of a little box after having left for ten hours, waited five minutes, didnt see a change in the OS so i restarted)08:03
jamieHmm, arch I tried your tutorial, created the folder "jamie" in the .icons place, but its not showing up when I click appearance < theme < customize < icons. It's just not there08:03
ardchoilleDr_Willis: /usr/share/icons/$THEME  even08:03
xjolynnxthat's not what i asked08:03
sebsebsebFerriss: ok and now what happens?08:03
xjolynnxwith linux, broadcasting on flash sites doesn't work for some reason. how can i make it work?08:03
Dr_Willisardchoille:  that seems to be the issue.. i reverted to the gnome default icon themne.  then used ubuntu-tweak and it changed the icon.08:03
sebsebsebwon't start right, but08:03
sebsebsebwhat does it do exactly08:03
Dr_Willisardchoille:  when i changed icon themes it does seem to reset howeer. had to rerun ubuntu-tweak08:04
ardchoilleDr_Willis: yeah, still don't understand why it happens08:04
Ferrissit gives me the error mountall:symbol lookup error: mountall: undefined symbol: udev_monitor_filter_add_match_subsystem_devtype08:04
sebsebsebFerriss: well doesn't matter that much,  your probably going to have to re install really,  plus if you do that,  not that important, but Ext4 by default and Grub 208:04
jamieDid you guys find a fix for it too work through ubuntu-tweak?08:04
sebsebsebFerriss: quite a lot of people had issues after upgrading 9.04  to 9.1008:04
Ferrissugh. Well i have a disc that's lower than 9.04 even, so im kinda screwed eternally arent i08:04
Ferrissand i have a shit time trying to get atheros drivers to work08:05
ardchoilleDr_Willis: If you find a fix for that, lemme know so I can possiblyupdate my tut08:05
sebsebsebFerriss: uhmm  which disc do you have?08:05
Ferrissand i cant very well download anything 'cause ive got 30kbps connection X| gosh.08:05
soreauDexterLB: What is the problem with using compiz?08:05
xjolynnxhow can i make my browser compatible with adobe flash player? i need this in order to broadcast my webcam on linux.08:05
sebsebsebFerriss: 9.04 is fine really for now, even intrepid08:05
sebsebsebFerriss: intrepid is on the verge of running out of support though :(   anyway you can use that CD and access  your partition and get data08:05
DexterLBsoreau: it's slow even on my intel dual core 2.8MHz processor, it crashes, it's problematic with dual-screen setups08:06
Leoneofhi, how to share internet connection from Laptop to PC, like this: http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/3613/ics.png08:06
Ferrissima have a horrible time installing it. haha. does ubuntu keep its installed packages somewhere? so i can install things without having to move the screenless laptop downstairs ;_;08:06
soreauDexterLB: Which version of ubuntu are you using?08:06
Ferrissmy lord.08:06
DexterLBsoreau: karmic08:06
soreauDexterLB: Which model card do you have?08:06
Ferrissi shouldnt have restarted. one more night of computer use wouldnt have been too bad.08:06
Dr_Willisardchoille:  yea. i got about 50 icon themes installed. :)08:07
nomad111hey all, im trying to configure apache2 to use a new site (Document Root), i created the new site in the sites-available folder as many sites instructed. When i browse to the site i get permission denied?08:07
sebsebsebFerriss: I know what you mean08:07
ardchoilleDr_Willis: hehe, that sounds about right for you08:07
nomad111googling this comes up with many reasons08:07
DexterLBsoreau: NVidia GF 950008:07
nomad111im not sure what to do08:07
Dr_Willisardchoille:  definatly depends on the icon theme it seems08:07
Ferrissthanks, sebsebseb. have you a good amount of experience in this? would there be any chance someone else would know what to do with the livecd to save it?08:08
sebsebsebFerriss: ,but even if you hadn't re started it,  the chance of the upgrading going wrong,   is quite high it seems, from  reading about other people's experiences.   normalley upgrades go fine, it's just 9.04 to 9.10 quite a lot of people had problems.08:08
jamieAha, I manually did it myself wooot!08:08
nomad111has anyone got this to work?08:08
soreauDexterLB: If you have any recent version of the nvidia driver it shouldn't be slow. However, nvidia drivers are buggy and problematic08:09
sebsebsebFerriss: it's just stick in the Live CD access the partition get data, and put it some where else,  got an external hard disk or something to put it on?   as for programs  well what have  you installed?  re installing stuff from the repo isn't a big deal08:09
Dr_Willisjamie:  if it work or not seems to depend on what icon theme you are using08:09
DexterLBsoreau: yes, and compiz needs those drivers08:09
DexterLBsoreau: :(08:09
=== sebi_` is now known as sebi`
Ferrisssebsebseb: i have an atheros onboard, it's hell to get the drivers working08:10
jamieDr_willis: I just simply went to home/jamie/.icons then to the current icon theme I was using and went to 24x24, and then places and replaced start-here.png with my own icon.08:10
soreauDexterLB: For nvidia, the only option so far is their proprietary drivers. Nouveau is in the making and reportedly are capable of running compiz. Which version of the drivers are you using?08:10
Ferrisswell sometimes. updating to the latest official stuff seemed to work last time. im not sure what did it, but updating everything and installing madwifi and ndiswrapper all at the same time seems to do it : p08:10
Leoneofhi, how to share internet connection from Laptop to PC, like this: http://img138.imageshack.us/img138/3613/ics.png08:11
sebsebsebFerriss: yeah wireless issues :(  luckily  only once I tried to sort something out myself,  a few years ago  before Ubuntu another distro.   so I am nice and etherneted :)  and have been for a few years now.   So you don't have the 9.04 CD?  Also if you were to put a clean install of 9.10 on it seems you wil probaby have to set up wireless in that one as well.08:11
Ferrissa 'fix the current install' option on the livecd wouldnt be too bad >_>08:11
Theresawhat does it mean to 'run the following in a terminal', the cmd prompt or... what?08:12
laughzillahi :) anyone know why my speakers would just suddenly stop working on my ubuntu 9.04 box?  all they make is a crackling sound when i test them or try to pass any sound thru them.08:12
nixjris there .rar file support in linux?08:12
sebsebsebFerriss: sadly there is no such option, maybe in the future their will be08:12
Ferrissi dont have 9.10 though. i have an intrepid cd. i dont know if that's 9.04.08:12

ubottunixjr: rar is a non-free archive format created by Rarsoft. For instructions on accessing .rar files through the Archive Manager view https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression. There is a free (as in speech) unrar utility as well, see !info unrar-free08:12
Dr_Willisnixjr:  yes08:12
sebsebsebFerriss: no intrepid is 8.1008:12
Ferrisshaha. I have 8.10 then. a full digit behind up to date08:13
nixjrthanks dr_willis08:13
sebsebsebFerriss: you put intrepid on from that CD?  upgraded to jaunty/9.04 and then tried to upgrade to karmic/9.10 ?08:13
ardchoilleDr_Willis: PM?08:13
Ferrisswould 8.10 to 9.10 work better? heh.08:14
Ferrissi could do that overnight08:14
ogmious09Hello hello08:14
sebsebsebFerriss: 8.10 can't be directly upgraded to 9.10 have to go through 9.04 first08:14
Ferrissahdang. i cant go through 9.04 either. haha. is there a different path i could use to getting to 9.10?08:15
sebsebsebFerriss: 8.10 is my favourite release over all since 8.04, oh yes it's still good.   thing is it's going to run out of support in April or around then,  but then  10.04 comes out anyway which is the next Long Term Support relase.08:15
sebsebsebFerriss: 9.10 offers little proper advantage from 8.10, same for 9.04.   unless people need it to say fix a hardware issue08:16

ubottuTheresa: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal08:16
Dr_WillisFantom__:  there is no root password08:16
Dr_WillisFantom__:  use your user and their password is the 'sudo' password to get root access08:16
LMJMy PC (certainly after an upgrade) started to have strange behavior : it won't boot correctly anymore : I need 4/5 mins to get the login screen. I've seen it's stuck 2min at "Checking battery state..." It also doesn't stop by itself. What could the issue? Is it a new acpi bug or so?08:16
Ferrissoh okay. I just figured i'd try to be up to date as much as i could so when i got lazy i wouldnt get ridiculously out of date.08:16
ardchoille!root | Fantom__08:16
ubottuFantom__: Do 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/RootSudo08:16
sebsebsebFerriss: I see, well I  know what I would do if I was you08:17
Theresaok, um im still trying to check my iso to the MD5SUMS08:17

ardchoillenixjr: do they all have the same file extension?08:18
Ferrissor just trash my pos laptop08:18
sebsebsebFerriss: either just buy some CD's and sort out a 9.10 CD and put it on.   or just put 8.10 on stay on 8.10 for now or upgrade to 9.04, and then do a clean install make a new CD of 10.04 when that comes out.  instead of  trying to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10 again with it possibily going wrong.08:18

ultraparadigmwiehan, I believe all that "page" information is refering to memory swapping.  In windows there is a "page file" for it, but linux uses a "swap" partition.  Did you create a swap partition, and how big is it?  Your swap partition should be 2X the amount of your physical ram.09:10

Dr_WillisNz17:  the whole 'use a cd as a big floppy' i think uses some special features of UDF filesystems.. ive only tried it under windows.. and it worked poorly there. Im dont ever recall seeing the feature on any linux disrto.09:33

Nz17LOL@Dr_Willis :D09:35
Dr_Willisranjan:  you can take/use a new filesystem on some other drive and move /home to it.. or move some users /home/username to it.09:35
midhilesh4dr willis can tell ur maile id09:35
Dr_Willisranjan:  a directory dosent have 'drive space' - filesystems do. :)09:35
meganerdranjan: it depends, is there any more space on the disk?  You could always move /home (or any other directory) to a second disk if you like09:35
ectospasmranjan: you could always mount /hom on an LVM volume09:36
Nz17In everyone's opinion, is now the time to move from ReiserFS to Ext4?09:36
Dr_WillisNz17:  ive never seen much need to use resiserfs09:36
ectospasmTHen you can add or remove space, almost on the fly.  I dunno, can ext4 be resized while it's mounted?  reiserfs3 could...09:37
Dr_WillisNz17:  may as well  move.09:37
meganerdNz17: I have not used reiser in quite some time09:37
tonyyarussoNz17: probably a reasonable idea.09:37
meganerdNz17: now is the time to switch to ext309:37
Nz17I've been using ReiserFS for /home for a few years now, but I think I'll go to Ext4 in the future.09:37

Seveasxinshou, xl2tpd and l2tpns seem related to l2tp10:38

the_real_daveHi, I want to upgrade to the latest ntfs-3g instead of using the one from the repos. I removed the old version, installed the new one, and once I changed the option of ntfs to ntfs-3g in my fstab it worked fine. However, mounting a USB drive via the Places menu mounts it as a read only file system, the same as if I leave the option for my internal drive as just ntfs. My question is, how can I change the Gnome Place11:05
blue-pearli installed ubuntu one client on 9.04.....but its not in the menu.11:06
Dr_Willisguess mine are in   /home/11:06

ubottusakthivel: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal11:11

ubottusakthivel: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)11:11
blue-pearlDr_Willis, tried all the commands which u gave11:11
the_real_daveDr_Willis: No, when I manually mount it with ntfs-3g it flies, and gets the proper speed for my drive ~12MB/s as opposed to <1Mb/s11:11
jackhornererUSUL, im moving some storage from my PC to a nas, i dont care about speed but heat and noise are very important, so i need to make my 7200rpm disk quieter and with less energy cosumption11:11
Dr_Willisthe_real_dave:  thats even weirder...  or you found some gvfs bug.11:12
the_real_daveDr_Willis: ya. If I could just tell Gnome to use ntfs-3g instead of ntfs :( Anyway, Ill be back in a sec, gonna reboot and try something11:13
