skeelolI'm trying to use dual boot XP/ Ubuntu. I have 500gb drive, set xp partition to 400gb and rest for ubuntu.00:53
skeelolI installed ubuntu and chose 'use largest available space'. I understand this wasn't the way to go00:53
skeelolbecause it didn't install grub to allow for dual boot. How should I go about reinstalling ubuntu?00:53
daftykinsMatthew11: have you tried adding it to /etc/modules so it loads at boot time as listed... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=29325500:53
Gstardj_segfault do an iptables -L might have to sudo it00:54
Joke_Do u know how?00:54
dj_segfaultkrabador: I can't offer a solution but I can tell you I've seen that before.  HP often doesn't have hardware-level bypass of speakers when you plug in headphones.  It's done in software.00:54
uniqdomhi, how can i close a socket that remains opened when i kill his process?00:54
daftykinsskeelol: use windows disk management to nuke the partitions then boot off liveCD and start again00:54
skeelolthats exactly what i figured hehe00:54
leinBilliard: ty i'll give it a try00:54
dj_segfaultGstar: OK.  I'm doing client and server on same machine, though.  What am I looking for in output?00:54
skeelolbut when reinstalling, if i choose install side by side, will it still use the unpartitioned free space ?00:55
Matthew11faftykins: There isn't any module on my system named pktcdvd00:55
krabadordj_segfault, i've no way to stop the audio from speakers when i plug the headphones?00:55

Gstardj are you using app armour or similar?00:56
krabadordj_segfault, no kind of alsa mod?00:56

leinis there an alternitive program to makedev that will run if udev is installed?00:56
dj_segfaultkrabador: I think there's a solution.  I'm just telling you (1) It's not just you and (2) it takes software.00:56
leinor a way to make makedev work with udev installed?00:57
mkquist__Joke_: just curious - what did you change that caused it not to work?00:57

Dougwiserdoes 9.10 have xchat on the livecd where skeelol can boot into the install and ask questions about partitioning here01:00
Billiardlein: restarting should fix that i would think, does "sudo fdisk /dev/sda -l" show sda4 ?01:00
leinBilliard: the partition is still there but she messed up the partion size and  wrong fs type01:00
Gstardj probably not just means you have alot of rules probably01:00

Joke_mkquist__:  ill take it did, brb restating01:32
mkquist__Joke_:  then, if that xorg.conf.20100125111515 is a good backup, type -  sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.20100125111515 /etc/X11/xorg.conf and that will replace it with the old one01:32

ChrisMorganPalimpsest Disk Utility reports "DISK HAS MANY BAD SECTORS" (65541 to be precise), but I don't believe this is a problem but rather due to the necessity of a hard power off after a freeze.  It was suggested to use fsck, but as I see it this won't help convince the SMART chip on the drive it should try them again.  Any ideas?01:36
evoncan someone please help me update my kernel to support my wacom bamboo tablet? i need someone who can walk me through it step by step. I've already downloaded the drivers to do the update01:36

jribjongbergs: it's nice and all, but I'll stick with X01:36

ChrisMorganAnd anyway, I haven't been able to get fsck to check my ext4 partition (/dev/sda5) - it's always mounted (even in recovery mode) and I don't really feel like risking its "SEVERE file system damage" or "busy" in the live CD for some reason01:37

herberoHi, I am running Debian Lenny, and I was having no troubles until I suddenly got a GRUB error 17. I read a bit online, it seems that my partition table is messed up, or possibly that one of my hd's is out. But without bash, I am struggling pretty badly. Can I fix this by popping in a live cd? How can I get command line back?01:38

jriblizk: same as before afaik.  It's the nth partition.  So in your example, 502:16
evondrknzz: my output from ./configure http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/m5908a5ef.  according to the site that'02:16
WildAtheartDrknzz well that is good.. I use centos mostly.. but starting to switch to ubuntu and would like to hire someone one to do some work.02:16
evondrknzz: my output from ./configure http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/m5908a5ef.  according to the site that's what supposed to happen02:16
jokeemmkquist__:  http://pastebin.com/m166ea1bd02:16
DrknzzWildAtheart: Well, you pretty much dont need to hire ppl, just come here :)02:16
PC_Nerd101Can anyone explain what the score's refer to when running aptitude full-upgrade etc?   I'm rather confused as to the difference between positive and negative scores.02:16
Drknzzevon, ima check that out02:17
WildAtheartLOL Drknzz.. I dont believe you a noob... noobs dont admit too often they are a noob.. unless they begging for help and dont want to act stupid02:17
jrib!aptitude | PC_Nerd10102:17
ubottuPC_Nerd101: aptitude is another terminal-based front-end to APT. Like other APT front-ends, it can install/remove packages and their dependencies. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptitudeSurvivalGuide02:17
dj_segfaultI just upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10.  I now have mysql 5.0 (I need it for mythtv among other things).  The upgrade installed mysql-server-core-5.0 but not msql-server-5.0.  When I tried installing *that*, it said it needed mysql-client-5.0, which it won't install because mysql-client-5.1 is installed.  Has anyone else seen this?02:17
jribPC_Nerd101: no idea, but I'd guess the aptitude manual may have a clue (link on that page)02:17
Drknzzevon: youre lacking a LOT of needed packages for building that module02:17
evondrknzz: lol. do tell02:18
WildAtheartdj_segfault uninstall both.. and reinstall02:18
evondrknzz: what should i install?02:18

FloodBot1jph_: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.02:18
evonjph_ use pastebin02:18
jph_will do02:18
DrknzzWildAtheart: lol, just ask, id bet someone will help you everytime, just be patient, or ask the bot ;)02:18
Drknzzevon: hehehe02:18

WildAtheartDrknzz LOL.../   somethings i need only to do once.. i dont always have time to learn.. cheaper to just pay someone02:19
lizkjrib: you have a link/ereference? In grub1 firstlogical always = 402:19
dj_segfaultjrib: Not that I know of, other than mutlimedia (dvd stuff)02:19
Drknzzevon: that may give u all headers u need02:19
jriblizk: because counting started at 0 before, now it starts at 102:19
sharktootheeepcwifi:are you using proprietary drivers?02:19
evonjph_ you mean from my ./configure output?02:20
jetpackeepcwifi: Try resetting your router. Just like, power off / power on02:20
eeepcwifisharktooth: its a stock install just installed today02:20
dj_segfaultjrib: Trying to research which version of MySQL is needed for MythTV02:20
WildAtheartDrknzz I do development for others.. and not always have enough time even for things i know how to do well02:20

DrknzzWildAtheart: Its pretty neat to know your way around stuff at all times, but if you do want to hire someone...02:20
WildAtheartdj_segfault do you have data you are afraid to lose?02:20
DrknzzWildAtheart: you should go for paid canonical support02:21
lizkjrib: you are saying that no matter my partitioning, /dev/sdaX always equals hd0,X ?  even with 1 primary 1 logical, /dev/sda3 = hd0,3 ?02:21
sharktootheeepcwifi:go to the system|admin|hardware drivers , see if you can install another driver for your wireless card;it MIGHT help, ephasis on might02:21
jriblizk: afaik, yes.02:21
mkquist__jokeem: yea i got it02:21
cp721hello how can i undo this command "sudo ufw allow proto tcp from to port 49200"02:21
dj_segfaultWildAtheart: It's backed up, but I would rather not lose it.  Years of MythTV, wordpress, etc02:21
hyperstreamis it possible to see what port an application is listening on ?02:21
WildAtheartDrknzz  nice if i do that is there a chance  i might one accross you there?02:21
sharktoothdoes anyone know why the upgrade button on ubuntu fails02:21
lizkjrib: where is that info? I want to be REALLY sure b4 i potentialy hose it02:21
PC_Nerd101jrib: I've just gone through the manual and haven't specifically found anything relating to scores02:21
Drknzzcp721: change allow for deny and thats it02:22
jriblizk: how would you hose it?  It would just fail to boot02:22
jokeemmkquist__:  k, did you find anything with either logs?02:22
DrknzzWildAtheart: Nope, but i bet those guys are nice :)02:22
lizkjrib: that would mean reinstall for me02:22
evondrknzz: you mean from my ./configure output?02:22
WildAtheartDrknzz yea they better be nice as much as they charge02:22
Drknzzevon: yup02:22
evondrknzz: not finding any of them02:22
eeepcwifisharktooth: if it matters it connects fine to open networks.. so are drivers the issue?02:22
DrknzzWildAtheart: Well, i hardly doubt they arent XD02:23
jriblizk: add an extra entry in grub instead of deleting the working one, no?02:23
ChrisMorganiflema: it did the on-boot-fsck, still the same SMART complaint.  I expect I'll just have to tell it to not warn me.02:23
Drknzzevon: weird, plz wait02:23
jph_evon I don't know... I have never had this problem before... I did a clean install of 9.10 and at install i used tasksel as provided in the installation wizard to install OpenSSH however for some unknown reason I didn't install LAMP at that time... no when entering sudo tasksel it only list three options not the long list as before02:23
jetpackAlright guys, I have a USB game controller, and I want to use it as a media remote sort of deal on my computer. Anyone have any ideas? I think I am getting pretty close... I just need a little bump in the right dirrection02:23
lizkwell i want to concentrate on getting the number 100% correct, rather than play guessing games02:23
eeepcwifiit says no propietary drivers are in use and it gives none in the list02:23
WildAtheartjetpack google game controller to make sure its supported first02:23
eeepcwifisharktooth: it says no propietary drivers are in use and it gives none in the list02:24
sharktootheeepcwifi: with the right drivers can can do more, it is worth a try. I know monitor mode works with some drivers maybe the hidden net will work02:24
sharktootheeepcwifi:what router are you using?02:24
jetpackeeepcwifi: do other computers on the network connect right now?02:24
Drknzzevon: try installing this and see if configure tells xfree86 stuff is present: http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/libxxf86misc-dev02:24
jriblizk: you would have figured it out already.  The link I gave you earlier explains how the numbering works.  There's also the official grub 2 docs I guess02:25
eeepcwifisharktooth: wrt54gl jetpack: yes 1 windows and 2 iphones.. I also deleted and created the network on the iphone to make sure. The router is also new.02:25
jetpackWildAtHeart: I have. It works flawlessly as a game controller. I am using Joy2Key to convert buttons to key presses, but I can't get it to act like my media keys02:25
lizkjrib: thing is (i'm using alternate i386) top says "configuration grub-pc" yet the instructions & examples are for old grub with wrong numbering02:25
WildAtheartjetpack i am new to ubuntu.. not sure i can help you there..02:26
lizkjrib: will it actualy do the correct thing given the corrct number?02:26
iflemaChrisMorgan did fsck complained about smart?02:26
jriblizk: I don't understand what you just said.  top of what?02:26
ChrisMorganiflema: it didn't complain about anything that I noticed02:26
adantehi guys, i stupidly did do-release-upgrade from an ssh session which died, now there are some dpkg-reconfigure processes that are preventing me from re-running do-release-upgrade - is it safe to just kill them and restart?02:26
pfred1I think I'm starting to see why Ubuntu wants to drop the gimp from future versions02:26
eeepcwifijetpack: i have 1 windows, desktop ubuntu  connected wired and 2 iphones connected wifi fine adn the router is 1 month old.02:26
jetpackeeepcwifi: try disconnecting and reconnecting the router just in case, and also double check the passphrase. I have an older router that glitches up a lot02:26
lizkjrib: i'm using the alternate install disk, when promped to write grub to mrbr i decline, then next screen it ask me for hdx,x, gut gives old instructin for grub102:26
jriblizk: what ubuntu version?02:27
jetpackWildAtHeart: Eh. Thanks anyway.02:27
* Callum_ scratches his hair over how to configure BIND02:27
eeepcwifijetpack: I have done that. and I checked the passphrase with teh iphone cus I was second guessing myself cus it wouldnt connect.02:27
jriblizk: I don't actually know if the alternate disk uses grub 2 or not02:27
serengetihyperstream: I think something like netstat -anp |grep processname02:27
lizkjrib: oh, that could make it different from live? it says "grub-pc" in title of that screen, grub-pc is grub2 no?02:28
jetpackeeepcwifi: if you go into the routers config pages can you pull up a DHCP table? It should have the MAC and IP of everything connected.02:28
jph_evon any thoughts?02:28
jokeemmkquist__:  u htere?02:28
jriblizk: I don't know.  I suppose if that's true, it's very likely a bug already exists at bugs.ubuntu.com about it02:28
mkquist__jokeem: still here, i dont use radeon cards, so I'm not sure on their config - maybe someone using radeon gfx could lend a hand?02:29
jetpackDo any of you guys have experience with Media Keys under Ubuntu?02:29
hyperstreamserengeti, thansk mate02:29
serengetihyperstream, no worries :)02:29
jokeemmkquist__:  ok... i might just reinstall02:29
jokeemso sick of linux02:29

pfred1jokeem its not for everyone02:30

evonjph_ sorry that last message i wrote was not meant for you. I actually don't know anything about that stuff02:30

jetpackjrib: oh gotcha. Haha. I don't think my issue would fit on one line.02:32
ripI tried installing 3 different distros (Ubuntu, Fedora, OpenSUSE) on a laptop with a nvidia geforce card in order to find out if any would be able to suspend (sleep) the laptop....  Under the default installation of the three distros, only Fedora successfully suspended the laptop via the included pm-suspend utility from pm-utils and only Fedora, by default, installs the nouveau driver while the other two seem to install the 'vesa' driver02:32
rip, by default.  Is suspend likely to be working on Fedora exactly because of the nouveau driver?  And does this mean, if I install the nouveau driver, it will work on Ubuntu also?02:32
FernandoFmessage i get is "Move background page assignment"02:32

eeepcwifijetpack: yes its 4 letters not easy to mess up :)02:43
Dr_Willismkquist__:  it does not make a xorg.conf02:43

frogzooRainbowEyes: there's Task Juggler, and there's Project02:49
Bogomore exactly a mail server problem...02:49
jetpackeeepcwifi: Huh... No idea. I would file a bug report, and then just un-hide it for now if you need it. It is probably a bug that is unique to your hardware.02:49
RainbowEyesokay, thanks frogzoo, I'll look it up ^^02:49
SolarisBoyand Planner RainbowEyes02:50
mkquist__jokeem: how about you open a terminal and type - sudo mv /etc/xorg.conf /etc/xorg.conf.old02:50
jeffreyfoorah, if you want to try, there are several tutorials on the internet on how to install Ubuntu or other distro onto the PS3.  You need the PowerPC (mac) version as the processor is a power series02:50
eeepcwifijetpack: I'll do that. Thanks for the help02:50
mkquist__jokeem: and try a reboot, doesnt work come back in live cd02:50
RainbowEyesSolarisBoy: okay, I'll check that out too :)02:50
jokeemmkquist__:  will do02:50
serengetijokeem: so you got the distortion for no apparent reason and then went to recovery and clicked Fix graphics errors?02:50
SolarisBoyresolv.conf defines which dns servers you use amongst other things02:50
jetpackHey guys, I am trying to configure a gamepad with joy2key but am having trouble mapping it to my media keys. Anyone have any ideas? More info at http://paste.ubuntu.com/362325/02:50
jokeemserengeti: other way arounf02:50
frogzooRainbowEyes: s/Planner/Project02:51
serengetimquist__: it won't work if he's on livecd, will it?02:51
SolarisBoyit also defines a search pattern to be appended to the end of hostnames like mydomain.net02:51
jph_jrib before we get to that let me run this thought by you, we are behind firewalls here I have access to modify them... that server has the following and only the following ports opened up on it 22,80,433,53    could this be the root of my problem?02:51
serengetimquist__: I mean it's not /etc/foo but /media/????/foo02:51
jokeemmkquist__: mv: cannot stat `/etc/xorg.conf': No such file or directory02:51
RainbowEyesfrogzoo: so you meant Planner?02:51
oorahjeffreyf, i know that, however the tutorials say nothing about the error messages i get. i've checked several of them for weeks02:52
eeepcwifibogo: whats your server problem?02:52
mkquist__jokeem: srry sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.old02:52
eeepcwifii may not be great with desktop stuff but I do a lot of linux server work02:52
mkquist__jokeem: missed the X11 part... oops02:52
SolarisBoyapt-cache show planner02:53
mkquist__serengeti: thats right02:53
mkquist__jokeem: you have to be doing this on your old install... right02:53
SolarisBoyunless thats an virtual package or something02:53
frogzooTask Juggler > Planner02:53
mkquist__serengeti: just assumed he knew that ... bad assumption02:53
SolarisBoyahh i see02:53
jokeemmkquist__: what u mean? in the recvoer02:53
jribjph_: hmm.  Well apt-get either uses http or ftp (looks like that should be ok). As for the dns lookups, I don't know what you need to do firewall-wise if anything02:53

Bogointernet connection is working...02:54
mkquist__jokeem: wont do anything there02:54
SolarisBoyyou need to try resolving whatever apt is trying to resolve against your dns server would be likely one of the first steps if you feel its dns related02:54
tahow reliable is virtualbox_02:54
jeffreyfoorah    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PlayStation_302:54
SolarisBoylike dig <domain> @<dns server>02:54

jokeemserengeti:  whats chroot?03:39
mkquist__serengeti: chroot to what?03:39
eeepcwifiI guess the real problem is that ubuntu-bug doesn't see network-manager-gnome as a genuine package03:39
ToastedPinecould be because you don't have a sound file xchat is pointed to03:39

jokeemNo media?04:03
mkquist__serengeti: wont that just put him in the root folder?04:03

serengetimkquist: it should put him on the livecd desktop04:04
hiexpoLinuX2half: - i am not sure about that but i think you have to download and install it manually04:04
mkquist__serengeti: if he sudo nautilus?04:04
puffI then removed the daily build PPA from my /etcapt/sources.list and then apt-get removed firefox, apt-get removed abrowser-brnading, apt-get removed firefox-branding.   Installed firefox, it failed to run.  Removed it and reinstalled it two or three times and it finally is sorta working, though it'smissing the /usr/bin/firefox alias to /usr/bin/firefox-3.004:04
puffAny advice here?04:04
serengetimkquist__: but he can't see the partitions if he does sudo nautils04:04

jokeemcan i sue that command for other dirctories?04:05
mkquist__serengeti: cause he started in diff place04:05
serengetijokeem: you have that moz.tar file on the desktop?04:06
ToastedPinehmmm, it's a long shot, but chmod 777 <path to folder> might be able to make copying possible.04:06
jokeemserengeti:  yes04:06
serengetijokeem: have you checked what's inside?04:06
jokeemser yeah04:06
jokeemserengeti:  firefox.. my addons.. etc04:06
eeepcwifihelper: ntop will graphically track overall usage as well as individual ip traffics going through your gateway. It keeps statistical logs of everything and updates realtime. Its webbased and uses its own built in webserver. Iftop is great for getting current traffic based on an interface (eg. iftop -i eth0) but it doesn't keep statistical logs. I manage 30 servers and use iftop for quick spot checks if its running slow and ntop for history to see when / 04:07
jokeemserengeti:  ill use that command for toher folders?04:07
serengetijokeem: you can but you might run out of space04:08
jokeemill delete as I go serengeti04:08
serengetijokeem: the thing is that your livecd desktop has very little free space04:09
eeepcwifihelper: ntop also gives you top users and you can go in and see exactly what traffic they were doing and when. As well as their throughput.04:09
mkquist__serengeti:  isnt he copying this to a usb drive?04:09
LinuX2halfhiexpo: oh okay then thanks04:09
serengetijokeem: so you might want to do "cd /media/Lexer" in the terminal so that the files end up on the pendrive04:09
jokeemmkquist__:  yea lol04:09
serengetimkquist__: I told him to do cd ~/Desktop before ;)04:09
eeepcwifihelper: I think ntop is what yoru looking for if you need statistical history. but if you just need to do a quick check on who is doing what right now then iftop provides a very low overhead command line interface thats really quick and easy.04:10
ToastedPinehttp://www.lifehacker.com.au/2007/12/access_linux_files_from_window/   <--- copy firefox backup in windows?04:11
LinuX2halfWhen will ubuntu finished packaging firefox 3.6?04:11
eeepcwifihelper: but ntop can be used to see who is doing what right now as well, but is more resource intense by nature.04:11
hiexpoLinuX2half: - no prob sorry i couldn't help04:11
kad_ eeepcwifi  downloaded ntop! http://localhost => for web log?04:11
mkquist__LinuX2half: chrome...04:11
LinuX2halfhiexpo that's alright, but I thanked for your effort04:11
zenlunaticLinuX2half: probably april04:11
serengetijokeem: before you do the reinstall, please check that all the files really are in the archives you create and on the usb drive, ok? :P04:12
LinuX2halfThat long...?04:12
mkquist__jokeem: I'm still of the opinion that its worth on more reboot after editing the xorg.conf file...  If that works your done.. no reinstall04:12
jokeemserengeti:  lol i will04:12
jokeemmkquist__:  doubt it will lol04:12
mkquist__jokeem: youd be surpised, i used to install when i ran into problems before, but now ive found that it can usually be fixed pretty easily and you learn04:13
eeepcwifikad: you need to configure it's conf file and then connect to it by port.. eg http://localhost:5423 or what ever port you configure it to run on04:13
mkquist__jokeem:  oops- in the process04:13
jokeemmkquist__:  I guess, but im on the verge of smashing things..04:13
serengetimkquist__: I agree, reinstalling is generally against the linux spirit ;) but if he's already so much late...04:13
eeepcwifiKad: I use ntop in OpenSuSE and its config file is located in /etc/sysconfig/ntop04:13
mkquist__serengeti: i know, but thats one thing that has not been done... and its simple04:14
eeepcwifikad: you need to configure the interface it listens on, port it will run its webserver on and what user it will run its webserver with and other settings for performance04:15
jph_If I want to prevent apache from starting on boot where do i go to change that04:15
serengetijokeem: I have to go anyway. you can always try the xorg.conf thing after you've backed up your stuff and just check if the system boots ok04:15
LinuX2halfokay then I'll wait patiently until its furnished just like last time04:15
jokeemwait serengeti04:15
serengetijokeem: ?04:15
jokeemhow can i use that command to backup other things04:16
jokeemsaying no such file or dir04:16
jokeemhow can i do all of it at once.. actually04:16
LinuX2halfis there some way where I can see the progress of the firefox version development..?04:17
eeepcwifikad: for example I run mine with this: /usr/bin/ntop -P /var/lib/ntop -i eth0 -u wwwrun -w <INTERFACE_IP>:5423 -b -n -z04:17
eeepcwifiThe -P is where it will store its database -b -n -z are for performance reasons04:17
LinuX2halfI'm not sure if there's a site to track the progress of the developing version online......04:17
jokeemcan I backup from windows? cause I have a large aprtiotn there.. ill just backup the whole l ot04:17
mkquist__serengeti: lookit the output of glxinfo |grep vendor, unknown chip id. cant guess, so the machine doesnt know what its dealing with04:17
mkquist__jokeem: windows doesnt usually read from ext partitions...04:18
serengetijokeem: maybe try tar cvf everything.tar /media/disk/home/yourusernamehere    - it would copy your entire home dir04:18
eeepcwifikad: you'll see that i specify port 5423 so when connecting to its web interface i use http://<IP>:542304:18
ranjani am not being able to b rouse my network place from nautilus  it is giving an error message of Failed to retrieve share list from server   any help would be of great help04:18
jokeemserengeti:  ok, cheers04:18
mkquist__serengeti: if he has a windows part- why  not back up there?04:19
jokeemserengeti:  it's working :)04:19
aliendude3500Are there any devs on here that are working on the new software center rating system? I was looking at the concepts and I noticed that the term "Ubuntu Single Sign-On Account" is used. Is this just your Launchpad account?04:20
serengetimkquist__: I guess it doesn't make much difference04:20
eeepcwifikad_: but you may want to look at iftop its much simpler and great for quick spot checks04:20
mkquist__serengeti: more space?04:20
rwwaliendude3500: I'm not familiar with the spec, but I would imagine so, yes.04:20
=== drew is now known as Guest40154
andydbzeeok. so i can't play dvds04:21
rwwaliendude3500: since Launchpad is what's used for Ubuntu One (and practically everything else).04:21
serengetimkquist__: touche. but maybe the usb drive has enough room? we'll see...04:21
aliendude3500Well, if any devs see this, I think it would be much better to make the dialog just say "Launchpad account" instead of "Ubuntu Single Sign-On account". MUCH less redundant. :)04:21
andydbzeeand i think i deleted all my media dependencies04:21
mkquist__serengeti: hope04:21
jokeemapprently it doesn't04:22

drenyxanyone know why my terminal/console garbles up ansi/ncurses stuff?04:22
serengetijokeem: out of space?04:22
jokeemmaybe I can backit up remotely to my windows machine...... some how04:22
jokeemserengeti:  yea lol04:22
aliendude3500I know you guys are trying to make this seem super easy and obvious for new users, but Launchpad account is shorter, better sounding, and not any harder to understand.04:22
serengetijokeem: delete the movies :p04:23

Out_Colddabukalam, add yourself to the group associated... perhaps it's scan?04:46
dabukalamdrew3, can't that be done from the appearance settings? i'm not entirely sure if you can change the size of cursors, but I know you can change the cursor theme from there04:46

dabukalamOut_Cold: I'd rather restart a process, it's a server and currently serving...04:52
SetiAmonwell since i just installed it i should have the latest.1.3.104:52
Out_Colddabukalam, you can chown the specific process but that may not help you either... might not be what you expected04:53
rumpsyRamza: It depends upon what codec you are having and what type of media file you are playing !04:53

rfgergrthnrewiggmpk, suspend with ubuntu has a long history of being broken06:07
jazzman im so angry right now, first cairo  goes down making my updates crazy and i did a clean install of ubuntu reinstall all my stuff, and now sound give me trouble.06:07
Oasawiggmpk : No idea. As you have said, Its a popular bug. Hope they fix it in Lynx.06:07
rfgergrthnrejazz, probably pulseaudio's fault06:07
wiggmpkOasa: so do I06:07
rileypI know its a common prob but i would liketo get on top of06:08
Myke1Well, its just a driver. They can concentrate on making the hardware and make drivers open sourced so that everyone who can make them better. no harm no foul06:08
wiggmpkrfgergrthnre: right, I remember.. However this is usually referred to as a regression.. suspend/hibernate should be a no brainer these days06:08
Myke1just my 2 cents06:08
jazzok lets find puse audio? would i have installed it inadvertently?06:09

Myke1Well, is it easy to dual boot Windows Xp and Ubuntu 9.10?06:11
rfgergrthnrewiggmpk, yep, it is regression... i dunno why, but things in ubuntu don't seem to stay in they work... look at x and audio... they were working fine in previous releases, but then they had to go and rewrite them and introduce lame bugs06:11

BinaryManI know its late so a lot of people are idling. however, would anyone still alive have any guesses why the cryptroot file stored in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d suddenly disappear?07:52
RaiN88How will I see errors in /var/logs?07:53
MyrttiRaiN88: you could try to boot to the recovery mode07:53
BinaryManalongside that, why would cryptsetup suddenly have a problem with the libgpg-error.so.0 library, causing the user to reinstall the libgpg-error package07:53
BinaryManthis is a problem i had about a week ago that i ended up solving, but never found out why everything regarding cryptsetup commited suicide on me.07:54
rumpsyRaiN88: each and every error will be logged in /var/logs so open it and check it07:54
mkquist__RaiN88: relax, it can be figured out, but not like what you are doing...  take your time and analyze...  but most of all relax.. geeze.  Usually its something simple, but it takes some problem solving.  Getting wound up wont solve anything07:55
RaiN88What if we'll use remote desktop?07:55
BinaryManRaiN88: what is the problem you're having?07:55
RaiN88It wont restart, It stuck in black screen07:56
BinaryMandefine it. One of your machines?07:57
RaiN88Myrtt: then what will I do?07:57
MyrttiRaiN88: check /var/logs07:57
mkquist__looking back, I'm guessing that, for whatever reason, grub is looking at the wrong place, so start there.  assuming you go ubuntu to install07:57
BinaryManRaiN88: I'm willing to help you with your problem. you have to answer my questions though.07:57
rumpsyRaiN88: Explain clearly, what happen , what you did...07:57
mkquist__RaiN88: listen to BinaryMan07:57
mkquist__RaiN88: or rumpsy07:58
BinaryManand /var/logs does not exist. what i believe Myrtti is referring to is a folder called /var/log, which holds logs about a variety of different services.07:58
BinaryManonce you can tell me more about your problem, i'll have a better idea of which log to look at.07:58
RaiN88I see a lot of logs here07:58
BinaryManwhich will more than liketly tell us more information that can be used to diagnose your problem.07:58

RaiN88When I restart it process then stuck in black screen, then nothing happens ..07:59
BinaryManRaiN88: That's normal. is your only problem centered around rebooting?07:59
BinaryManRaiN88: or are you having problems booting into your system as well?07:59

RaiN88I didn't see the system log, only system testing and system monitor08:03
Myke1I was thinking it would be ok too, it would just give me the choice of 10.04 instead of 9.10 after upgrading08:03

mkanyicyi have a 32-bit computer and I want to buy an nVidia AGP card and it says 'AGP 8x 64bit' and I am worried about that '64bit' description of the card, is it a right card for my PC?09:17
LITesterBwhat model?09:18
indusmkanyicy, doesnt matter what it says on the card, however this card seems rather old09:18
mkanyicyindus, what do you recommend then?09:19
indusmkanyicy, you trying to upgrade your card?is this a new card?09:19
LITesterBis this in a personal buy/sell print? they probably meant AGP 8x 64MB09:19
indusyeah probably its the ram09:19
* _Ovidiu is away: Gone away for now09:19
indus64 MB09:19
mkanyicyindus, I am afraid to buy stuff that will not work with my PC. my motherboard is Biostar P4M80-M409:20
mkanyicyLITesterB, indus it's 64bit and 256MB09:20
sandhyapost upgrade to karmic, console beeps are inaudible on my laptop.. any idea why?09:20
indusHMM ok09:20
indusmkanyicy, do you have an AGP slot?09:21
mkanyicyindus, LITesterB, I am not sure whether that means that it should be used to 64-bit computers or what09:21
indusah yes it has09:21
mkanyicyindus, yes I have one09:21
indusmkanyicy, any link for the card?09:21
mkanyicyindus, I was using ATI Radion X700 and it died09:21

But now, when I turn on my computer, GRUB boot manager doesn't come up anymore. I can only get into Vista. I have tried holding down F8 at startup and booting from my Ubuntu HDD but it does not work. Is there anyway I can get the GRUB boot manager to come up when I turn my computer on again? Because right 09:24

EastDallasnewbuntuser: Do you need to take ownership or change permissions?09:59
Guest90234Eremite how will I do that?10:00
luxoFluxStudent: sudo nautilus gives you a filemanager with root rights. Then set ownership of the files to your user.10:00
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)10:00
Guest90234what am I going to search rumpsy?10:00
EastDallasnewbuntuser: the -R would be appropriate is you want to change all of the contents to777, but that's pretty unlikely.10:00
StudentluxoFlux: Thanks for the advice. I'll keep that in mind.10:00
newbuntuserEast Dallas: chmod has no effect, and no error!10:00

zetheroorww: can 64bit run everything that 32bit does in Ubuntu?10:15
dnivrazetheroo, you could try installing linux kernel pae. i use 32 bit ubuntu with this kernel to use the whole 4GB.(saying this just in case no one told you this)10:15
coz_zetheroo,  then reinstall the entire system10:15
zetheroodnivra: so there is a 32bit kernel that can use all 4GB of RAM?10:15

archboxmanI use firefox 3.5 on archlinux becuase they use bleeding edge packages kinda weird10:16
archboxmanewook: ues10:16
newbuntuserEastDallas: now hopefully it will be persistent upon reboot10:16
rwwzetheroo: there are a tiny number of packages in the 32-bit repositories that aren't in the 64-bit repositories. You will likely never come across them.10:16

ewookarchboxman: you're spamming me. I haven't asked anything.10:17
coz_zetheroo,  you are running 32 bit OS10:17
ikoniafrogzoo: to enable more than 3.5 gig of ram you either need to use the 32bit PAE kernel, or install a 64bit OS10:17
coz_zetheroo,   in terminal do   sudo dmidecode   and move down to the Processor Informatoin10:18
zetherooso why are people saying to install the 32bit kernel ?10:18
dnivrafrogzoo, for me it's satisfaction that ubuntu is detecting the whole 4GB and not just win10:18
frogzooikonia: interesting..10:18
rumpsyzetheroo: in to app of 64bit you have to install a lib !10:18

theadminatomfox: Me? I don't have anything to do with it.10:37
atomfoxyup I know10:37
TisssppHi I recently installed xubuntu-desktop followed by kubuntu-desktop onto ubuntu to experience them, but now the ugly kubuntu cursor is there and won't go away. And trying to change it in the theme settings doesn't work neither.10:37
theadminAnyway, susanin-dom wonders when forums will be back up10:37
atomfoxsuigeneris, yup I know10:37
zetheroodnivra: and your system is now using over 3GB of ram?10:37
dnivrazetheroo, 3.8GB10:37
susanin-domanybody khow when forum will be good?10:38
zetheroodnivra: so you also have 4GB in your system ...10:38
dnivrazetheroo, yes I do.10:38
khrisswhere can i get Sis 671/771 mirage 3 drivers for ubuntu 9.10 and how can i maximize my resolution to 1360x768?10:38
jellowhow i tun a file into an iso?10:38
luxoFluxwhat package do i need to install to get the services start/stop utility in my desktop ubuntu menu?10:39
AcheronCan anyone help me with a reprepro apt server?10:39
theadminsusanin-dom: У меня форум работает нормально // Forums work for me10:39
coz_Acheron,  I know nothing about it however ..if no one here can help you could also try the ##linux on freenode or  #linux on efnet server10:40
StudentluxoFlux: For me it's preinstalled in System->Administration->Services is this what you meant?10:40
luxoFluxStudent: Yes i don't have it. My previous install had it.10:41
dnivrazetheroo, but as rumpsy said the 32 bit might not be the best on the 64bit architecture. I've not used the 64 bit version so I don't know. I'm happy it works faster that win vista 64 bit so don't wanna change. never had the need to change.10:41
dnivrazetheroo, 32 bit kernel*10:41
atomfoxanyone here experiencing the random freeze in ubuntu 9.10?10:42
theadminatomfox: Sometimes happens to me, no idea wtf10:42
StudentluxoFlux: Ok found it. Go to synaptic package manager and search for system-services10:42
jellow!img | jellow10:42
coz_zetheroo,  they do make a point here.... since you have  64 bit architecture it may be best to use the 64 bit ubuntu   and other than having to install flash manually... apparenlty it works just as well :)10:42
luxoFluxStudent : thanks10:42
StudentluxoFlux: Np just let me know if it helps :)10:43
theadminjellow: There is no such ubottu command as "!img"10:43
ardchoilleStudent: Any way to get that on Karmic?10:43
Studentardchoille: Get what?10:43
zetheroo coz_: except for skype!?10:43
coz_zetheroo,  rather you have 64 bit hardware10:43
ardchoilleStudent: system-services10:43
coz_zetheroo,  oh  mmmm10:43
Studentardchoille: I'm on Jaunty but it should work for Karmic too10:44
coz_zetheroo,  then the other alternative is to do nothing10:44
atomfoxtheadmin, I hope somebody could find I fix for it, been solving it for 1 week, and still the freezing occurs10:44
ardchoille!info system-services10:44
ubottuPackage system-services does not exist in karmic10:44
coz_zetheroo,   and just accespt the amount of memory recognized and go from there10:44
ardchoilleStudent: ^^10:44
theadminatomfox: Usually it's something with hardware10:44
Studentardchoille: Hmm interesting.10:44
jellowtheadmin: i know was jut a shot in the dark trying to mount an .img10:44
ardchoilleStudent: could be due to the move away from sysinit system10:45
psycho_oreosjellow, you need something like cdemu10:45
atomfoxtheadmin, I'm not sure, how about you? do you still experience it?10:45
theadminjellow: IMG? You can try "mount -o loop file.img ~/somedir", but I don't know... this works with ISO's10:45
Studentardchoille: I decided not to go to karmic because it didn't work for me too well. Maybe since It's been a while I'll give it another try.10:45
theadminatomfox: Rarely10:45
psycho_oreostheadmin, highly doubt that will work10:45
sera|worka freshly installed server 9.10 just shows GRUB_ and nothing else at boot ... i already reinstalled, same error. any ideas?10:46
Studentardchoille: Are you having any troubles with: 9.10?10:46
jellowpsycho_oreos: just convert it to iso10:46
ardchoilleStudent: Not a bit10:46
theadminjellow: Actually, try to get disc images in ISO format, those are only ones that get mounted for me10:46
psycho_oreosjellow, yeah that is another way, maybe with binchunker :)10:46
suigenerisis there a bug in chown? I type chown and the first two or three characters of the user, hit tab and user\: comes up. then I try adding the same user as the group and tab doesn't accept it. what gives?10:46
ardchoilleStudent: But I build my own computers from parts that I already know work with Ubuntu10:46
Studentardchoille: Hmm well in a bit I think I'll give 9.10 64 bit a try. Thanks :)10:46
jellowtheadmin: tried that kept asking for a filesystem10:47
theadminjellow: Ah, then it's not gonna work :/10:47
Studentardchoille: I think I first tried when it was an alpha so....10:47
psycho_oreosjellow, though the good thing about cdemu is that it has the capability to emulate a virtual cd/dvd drive.. much like like how daemontools work on win3210:47
ardchoilleStudent: yeah, I didn';t install it until this month, didn't want any of the hassle others were having10:47
luxoFluxStudent : no that package doesn't exist on my system.10:48
theadminWhat is the proper way to mount an NTFS filesystem? "ntfs-3g /dev/somedrive" or "mount /dev/somedrive"?10:48
rumpsytheadmin: lol10:48
StudentluxoFlux are you on 9.10?10:48
psycho_oreostheadmin, either will work I think.. though ntfs-3g is probably better than ntfs itself10:48
theadminrumpsy: Uh... huh?10:48
Miraclehi people I'm trying to compile my first kernel and was wondering if i need to provide support for both x86 and x64 or would x64 be enough?10:48
rumpsytheadmin: sudo fdisk -l10:48
psycho_oreosMiracle, depends on your applicants10:48
theadminrumpsy: That lists, not mounts10:49
jellowpsycho_oreos: sounds usefull , will have a look10:49
psycho_oreosMiracle, s/applicants/applications10:49
rumpsytheadmin: then, look what drive you want10:49
luxoFluxStudent: yes desktop iso10:49
psycho_oreosjellow, the only downfall is that getting it to work is quite awkward, just be forewarned10:49
theadminrumpsy: Uh... no, I just ask what is the proper command to mount NTFS10:49
StudentluxoFlux I was told that specific package isn't on 9.10. I'll try to find it out.10:49
rumpsytheadmin: this is command, sudo mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sda1 /home/theadmin/mounted10:49
psycho_oreostheadmin, mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/<hd> /mnt/some_point10:49
Miraclepsycho_oreos ok are there apps that only work in x86 or usually there both?10:50
theadminrumpsy: /home/theadmin doesn't exist. Why not use ~? This would be more universal.10:50
psycho_oreosMiracle, not off my head, but moreso are the drivers that could be an issue for example10:50
zetheroois there an Ubuntu chat for the 64bit version?10:50
rumpsytheadmin: ^^, that was an example, you have to choose exact hdd and location to mount10:50
Miracleoreo ah ok thx10:50
Myrttizetheroo: this is it10:50
theadminzetheroo: There are many IM clients for x64 ubuntu10:50
rumpsytheadmin: got it? worked?10:51
psycho_oreosMiracle, nw.. technically 32bit can be run under 64bit platform but it may get slowed down.. if you're using ia64 the lag is very evident but that sort of hardware is fairly rare10:51
zetherooMyrtti: ah .. ok ... you use 64bit? I just want to know all the gory details of what does NOT work :)10:51
hiexpopsycho_oreos: - hey what prog is that cdemu i use to use daemon tools and loved it10:51
theadminrumpsy: Yep. Thanks.10:51
zetherootheadmin: I was not asking for an IM client ;)10:51
theadminzetheroo: Then what? o_O10:51
Myrttizetheroo: everything works.10:52
Myrttizetheroo: that is, everything I've thrown at it10:52
StudentluxoFlux Sorry I cant find anything for 9.10. Maybe someone else knows.10:52
psycho_oreoshiexpo, yeah its cdemu, but cdemu is only CLI front-end.. daemontools is more like GUI frontend.. to this date I haven't found a decent equivalence to it apart from cdemu itself10:52
zetherooMyrtti: repos the same? what about Skype?10:52
hiexpook kool and where did ya get it in the rep's ?10:53
rwwzetheroo: 1) yes, 2) skype has a 64-bit version10:53
psycho_oreoszetheroo,  think its the same, except instead of it being marked as i386 its marked as x86-64.. unless otherwise it comes from ppa10:53
StudentMyrtti: Are you using 9.10?10:53
Myrttizetheroo: only thing I've done differently is that I got the alpha flash plugin from labs.adobe.com. Some people use other methods.10:53
MyrttiStudent: yes?10:53
hiexpoi found it thanks10:53
psycho_oreoshiexpo, you'll need to search for it and add ppa keys :) but like I said, I have to warn you its not easy to get it working right :)10:54
melchiorHow do i install a deb package from the sehell ?10:54
zetheroorww: awesome .. so skype for Linux 64bit10:54
psycho_oreosmelchior, dpkg -i </path/to/file>10:54
StudentMyrtti: Ok now I'll update to 9.10 64 bit for sure. I am on 9.04 32 bit now and wanted to know another users opinnion.10:54
psycho_oreosmelchior, err add sudo in front10:54
thwappHello folks...10:54
hiexpono prob i'll get it working :)10:54
ardchoillemelchior: you'll need sudo for that10:54
