g0tchaim doing this to retrieve data and not setup a new raid0, so should i continue to create the array or cancel?00:23
novato_brshudder, could I tell a little story about my troubles here?00:23
RandomizeRdesnaike, it's probably not the driver's fault, i'm suspecting it can't read the EDID cuz the monitor is VGA and the graphics card outputs HDMI, and i'm connecting it through an adapter00:23
RandomizeRdesnaike, most probably the adapter messes up the EDID stuff00:23
RandomizeRdesnaike, driver is 185 btw00:23
novato_brshudder, I'm working hardly with ubuntu.00:24
RandomizeRdesnaike, but tried older version and got the same result, also windows couldn't read the EDID either, but windows still has my resolution in the list :(00:24

RandomizeRdesnaike, so all i'm hoping to do now as a last resort is to tell it to ignore the EDID and just set the resolution manually00:36
airtonixpfifo, as far as I am aware gnome-panel will only run once per user session... multiple x sessions are not supported i do not think.00:36
novato_brshudder, on compilation there are two errors00:36
RandomizeRdesnaike, someone told me about an IgnoreEDID option, and i tried it but still no luck00:36
shuddernovato_br: do you have all the compile packages installed?00:36
shuddernovato_br: like build-essential etc.?00:37
haven489markizana; you should turn on cloaking00:37
danbhfivenovato_br: #ubuntu+1 has directions for the alpha.  The alpha has the x.32 kernel.  You might as well try booting that and seeing if your webcam works00:37
haven489people dont turn one cloaking anymore do they?00:38
pfifoairtonix, it starts on both monitors then crashes, the restarts, on and on till i kill it off, how about this, is there a way to disable starting it on my second monitor? really i dont even want it on that one anyway.

Dr_Willisjarray52:  if you shareing the drive with both os's - i would suggest not using hibernate/suspend at all00:49
AlexCairtonix: they are the same. I thought i might be because i've been trying to set up a few services and can't connect properly, but it's probably my lack of configuration skill00:50

Dr_WillisDunkirk:  there may be some PPA repios for whatever it is you are looking for01:35
Umeaboymacman_: Have you updated your system?01:35
macman_Umeaboy: im on 9.1001:36
UmeaboyYes, but are you fully updated?01:36
macman_i think so yes i am01:36
Dunkirkblakkheim: Well, I still haven't committed. I'm weighing my options. And, you're both right, libvirt is latest in Gentoo's portage right now. The PPA has the lastest for Ubuntu only in Lucid, and like I said, there's no backport.01:36
PingFloydcompiling shouldn't scare you, installing should though enough that you'll be smart and make it a package01:36
TsujiHokay. I have a networking problem. Ubuntu says I'm connected to the selected network, but I am not able to browse the internet.01:36
infidRedache: i have unr 9.10. i dont seem a 'preferences->Switch desktop' or anything01:36

PingFloydDunkirk: "lately"?01:37
macman_Dunkirk: cause you don't have to be leet to run linux .. gentoo and linux are the same thing just diffrent distor's .. being l33b h4x0r is so the 90's01:37

huntRandom832: yeah would be nice to keep my config files02:31
tennesseanjava works, but no flash whatsoever unless in run gfv02:31
kslenCarlis, easiest way is to have a separate harddrive or partition formatted with fat32, that way you can exchange files between the operatingsystems. other options are a usb-stick or burn stuff to cd or dvd.02:31
blakkheimCarlis: not unless you used ext2 and are using the ext2 windows driver02:31
Justin_`I have installed the drivers for my wireless network card but it will wont connect02:31
tonyyarussoCarlis: Depends on the file.02:31
bona_blakkheim: does it have the auto volume leveling?02:31
blakkheimbona_: i am not 100% sure02:31
jerkfacethis is what I'm talking about http://i.imgur.com/144PL.png02:31
Random832hunt; ok, you need to first log on as root in single user mode. mount the /home partition somewhere else, move all the stuff to /home, and remove it from fstab - then you can reboot to the livecd and remove the partition with gparted02:32

svipWith magic!02:33
Random832hunt; you know the "recovery mode" you never use in the boot menu?02:33
blakkheimCarlis: windows cannot read linux filesystems, with the exception of ext2 (with a 3rd party driver)02:33
Random832that's single user mode.02:33

tony121windows is the best05:02
ardchoilletony121: Please take that elsewhere05:02
Out_ColdJulieJulie, it's not fast... if you switched to a  window manager you would notice improvement but less graphical eye candy05:02
blakkheimOut_Cold: sure, on a virtual machine using someone else's wifi :P05:03
JulieJulieOut_Cold,  How would I do that?05:03
jrcarr2tony121, I agree. I like linux, but windows integrates with everything better05:03
jrcarr2I mean come on! Why is it so complicated to just slam my laptop on and off a docking station and have it just work?05:03
ardchoillePerhaps we should take the Windows chat to another channel?05:03
Out_ColdJulieJulie, you can install dummy packages such as xubuntu-desktop (cant remember exact name)05:03
blakkheimjrcarr2: which part of your docking station doesn't work with linux05:03
tony121jes i mean just like u jrcarr205:03
Out_ColdJulieJulie, i'll find for you05:03
predator_xis website not loading quickly maybe due to poor connection? i have like 70%05:03
gtni wish linux had a monolithic kernel05:04
jrcarr2blakkheim, for reasons that elude me, it never comes back when i remove it from the docking station unless I reboot05:04
uorygl_Hmm. When I use ifconfig to set an interface to be pointopoint, shouldn't that result in the remote device having an IP address I can see somewhere?05:04
ASUSeeePCNeed help with install on my netbook - anyone know how to start the install from a terminal or restart it?05:04
Out_ColdJulieJulie, yes sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop05:04
uorygl_I'm trying to connect to my modem. Literally; it has an embedded web server.05:04
blakkheimASUSeeePC: are you using like unetbootin or something05:05
Out_ColdJulieJulie, there are many managers to try that use low resources05:05
JulieJulieOut_Cold,  thats what I would type in the command line?05:05
jrcarr2but of course that's my only nitpick. it annoys me because I PREFER to work in linux rather than on windows05:05
Out_Coldsudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop05:05
blakkheimxubuntu/xfce is still pretty bloated05:05
blakkheimnot going  to make a huge difference05:05
Out_ColdJulieJulie, you can get ones that look like windows 3.1 that are really light05:06
ardchoilleJulieJulie: You could try fluxbox or window maker, they're more lean than xfce05:06

JulieJulieOut_Cold,  lol Im sorry change what?  like over to xubuntu?05:14
Out_Coldyes to the xfce manager05:14
drew31JulieJulie I don't have one handy, the desktop and file manager are intergrated in gnome and in the KDE desktop, making them use more memory. Xfce is simply a less demanding dessktop and it is part or the Xubuntu version of Ubuntu.05:14
jhb1608only 6.06 works with my old eMac?05:14
jhb1608I cal it crazy.05:15

ezrafreebazhang: not sure, this is ubuntu 9.10 if that helps05:29
robs227i can't seem to find a decent guide05:29
bazhangezrafree, was it fresh installed or upgraded, and if the latter did you choose the maintainers version ie grub2  sudo update-grub should work if so  /msg ubottu grub2 for the wiki link05:30
ezrafreefresh install here05:31
bazhangthen check the wiki, that command should do it05:31
ezrafreeahh yes, update-grub seems like it works cool05:31
robs227I think maybe you want to look for menu.lst instead of grub.conf05:32
bazhangrobs227, not for grub2, and never want to directly edit the new grub config file05:32
robs227I guess that makes sense.05:33
robs227im just getting into gentoo, editing grub.conf is what I would do there, thought it might be the same05:33

JulieJuliea minimal iso?05:55
blakkheim!mini | JulieJulie05:55
ubottuJulieJulie: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD05:55
ubuntubut either ways.... i will change the motherboard soon as i have soem money. right now is starting up all over again, then booting again in live CD, then installing chatzila the only option for me? or can I type someting in the terminal or searchthrough the installation folder??05:55

jazzardchoille, i think im going to reinstall this 9.10 and just make a partition to house my files and just use the the rest of the hdd for the os is that possible? so installing 10.4 is  a matter of normal installation and still retaining my partiton as a normal mount? like a cd or hdd?06:14

hiatusUbuntu: is it a fresh install?06:54
Out_Coldubuntu, i think you should remove partitions 1-3 and install again. this time make sure you install grub on sda1 and also /boot06:54
MauritianGuywow its already done06:54
ubuntuhow do i make sure of what you just said Out_Cold ?06:54

c_nickare these 2 stmts different export PATH=$PATH=$HOME/Desktop/bin and export PATH=$PATH=/home/Desktop/bin06:55

ubuntujust one old IDE HDD right now hiatus06:55
MauritianGuyi know Out_Cold  it so much better06:55
PingFloydubuntu: I spaced the other day like that, and the installer didn't complain, but discovered it when the grub installation phase was giving errors06:55
MauritianGuybut u cant have everything Out_Cold06:56
LtHummusIs there anyway to invoke scp to copy files to my local machine from a server while connected via ssh to the remote server?06:56
Out_Coldubuntu, when you go to partition... remove 1-3, then start fresh... make 3 new partitions in this order.. 300mb /boot, 2xRAM swap, 10gb /, everything else /home06:56
MauritianGuybut there is excellent support here its worth it06:56
PingFloydubuntu: in other words, during the partman phase of the installer, did you tell it where to put /boot?06:56
hiatusUbuntu: its just easier to reinstall then manually deleting the old grub, reinstalling a new grub, pointing to the operating system, etc. Etc. Etc.06:56

PingFloydthat's a rather large /boot06:57
b0wmaco: any clue?06:57

Out_ColdPingFloyd, 300mb is not overkill but still ok for bloated use..06:58
PingFloydI used to put my /boot at 250MB, but seems like 150MB ends up usually being plenty for a few kernels06:58
Out_Coldi make smaller if i'm short on space.. but 300 is like pocket change06:58
macob0w: sudo update-initramfs -c $(uname -r)06:58
c_nickoh ok thanks Flannel06:58
macob0w: (my flatmate's the one telling me what to tell you)06:59
c_nickso $HOME is /home/username.. hmm now i know why it was not working06:59
ubuntui had 40 GB for C drive in windows with the rest of 200 GB for the media files so both were NTFS. when installing 8.10, i deleted the c drive partition (whatever i was called in linux terms) and created a swap with 1GB and rest of 39 GB ext3 / (just / ) did i do anything wrong? so that is two partitions and leaving the ntfs intact.06:59
procan anyone point me in the right direction of why named and exim dont work correctly when i start them from init scripts they fail, if i start them by hand, they work?06:59
c_nickFlannel: where can i get all of these06:59
ubuntumy ram is 2 GB btw06:59
Flannelc_nick: all of these?06:59
Flannelc_nick: `echo $HOME` will display its contents06:59
c_nickFlannel: yeah $HOME $ something else u know06:59
PingFloydubuntu: make your swap as large as your RAM if you want to use suspend06:59
proand if anyone says www.debian.org/download then dont worry, im thinking that too06:59
indusMauritianGuy, vlc is a 'free software' available on all platforms06:59
Out_Coldubuntu, ideally you want 3.. but you can work with 2....06:59
c_nickthanks FLannel06:59
PingFloydubuntu: and remember the partman in the installer is showing gigibytes, not gibibytes07:00
b0wmaco: ok np so i just type that? or i puta uname -r between the ()?07:00
macob0w: yeah07:00
ubuntuso right now when installing the 9.10 , just clicked on the format optin for the second partition that had 8.10.. is that something wrong?07:00
PingFloydubuntu: so if you tell it 4GB it won't be quite big enough for suspend because it will actually be under 4 GiB07:00
hiatusWhy not have him do an automated fresh install? No need to make things more complicated then it needs to be07:00
indusMauritianGuy, it doesnt need any additional codecs, has its own libraries which plays every thing, can plat tv from a tvtuner, steam your desktop over the net etc etc etc07:00
Out_Coldubuntu, go back into the installer, remove sda1, sda2, sda3 and make a new sda1 for /boot, a new sda2 for swap, sda3 for / and then mount sda4 on /home... make sure you DO NOT format sda407:01
PingFloydubuntu: I mean 207:01
c_nickhow to remove a set path07:01
b0wmaco: same result the menu of options07:01

hiatusWhy not just have reinstall everything then and choose to delete everything?07:02
ubuntusorry.... i should not format sda4 or sda 2? and which should i mount in /home? *what ws the 2 for in the second line?*07:02
Out_Coldhiatus, sda4 is ntfs for files07:02
Out_Coldubuntu, why not erase sda2???07:02
Out_Coldsda2 is where your old windows looks like it used to be07:03
ubuntui have no idea was sda2 in the current situation  is... sda 5 is my media files i suppose. so i want to keep that..07:03

DexterLBI'm on a console only system (damn small linux without X). It has a 8GB hard drive at /dev/hda. I want to make a single 8GB partition on it, so I start parted with sudo parted, and I'm in the parted console. So I type: mkpartfs primary ext3 0% 100%, but it returns error: Unable to open /dev/hda - unrecognized disk label. Why is that?07:31

DVS01now i realize that it would be much more organized to use the packages09:46
DVS01so now i gotta locate all these files and delete them and then install mailscanner from the package :P09:46
hexa-stuartm_, did you edit your sources.list?09:46
llutzDVS01: it's better to use native packages in most cases09:46
DVS01yea i know09:46
DVS01or at least use checkinstall09:46

SolarisBoylike yesterday12:01
industobiasz, you could try other distros like arch12:01
SolarisBoysince that official news i have been having issues on the sun site as well12:01
industobiasz, but they aint easy to use or administer like ubuntu12:01
SolarisBoytry the oracle site12:01
tobiaszindus arch would take too much time to do simple things12:01
industobiasz, yes12:01
tobiaszindus ubuntu is just slow, xp is thousand times faster12:02
industobiasz, you could try removing some apps runing in background12:02
ekontsevoyHow can I launch any GTK-based app in a given directory via Gnome launcher? Right now it launches in "/" which is super annoying12:02
industobiasz, thats not correct, how much ram you ahve?12:02
SolarisBoytobiasz: this is not true12:02
nyaahello, has there ever been a case where suspend or hibernate ruined a bios to the point where you can't even see a post message?12:02
tobiasz2gb ram gf 7800gt amd athlon 64 4000+12:02

joshua1hmmm if you're talking about file management preferences, i don't see an option to set up a thumbnail view.12:03
tobiaszindus not true in my case12:03
joshua1any idea where i can find the nautilus config??12:03
industobiasz, windows xp will slow down over time you will have noticed, ubuntu stays same12:03
