CarciDoes anyone have any suggestions for this problem I'm facing? "err:wave:wodPlayer_WriteMaxFrags Error in writing wavehdr. Reason: Resource temporarily unavailable"00:05
benkay86apollo: First off, trying the "recovery" option might just get us somewhere. If that fails, the memtest86 almost always works. If that fails too, then I'm going to go bang my head against a wall.00:05
bioinfolaboOkay. So whenever I leave my computer running for a extended period of time I come back to find that sound wont work at all. I used to close firefox and then do ps aux | grep firefox and kill it again because it wouldnt close for some reason. After that sound comes back when I re open firefox00:05
bioinfolabonow I have moved to chrome... and it wont work again00:05
bioinfolaboand I am tired of rebooting00:05
phoenixzWhat would be the recommended plugin to use for firefox flash? AFAIK, NOT The adobe one, since it.. sucks.. but I want to be able to do pretty much everything with flash like youtube video, and well, all needed for normal browsing..00:05
madoDasEi, yes00:06
jribphoenixz: adobe flash00:06
apollostuff is happening with recovery mode. a bunch of commands... it stopped at 3.17218300:06
phoenixzjrib: But isnt that the one causing lots of trouble, slow, etc?00:06
jribphoenixz: yep00:06
DasEibioinfolabo: can have a couple of reasons, checked your syslog about alsa and pulseaudio ?00:06
phoenixzjrib: yet its the recommended one.. as in, the alternatives suck worse?00:07
benkay86apollo: If it's stuck, could you tell me what the last line says?00:07
jribphoenixz: you can try gnash, but it won't run everything you encounter00:07
bioinfolaboIm a linux newbie. Unfortunately I have been sheltered all my life with windows...00:07

benkay86apollo: OK. I'm going to look and see if there are any known issues with your netbook. In the meanwhile, could you try rebooting and choosing the "windows vista (loader)" option? Remember, you'll have to press a button (like escape) before GRUB decides to boot the default option.00:12

renamonyeah and it no working00:20
benkay86arand, apollo: OK, so it looks like GRUB2 is actually working just fine since it is able to load both the Linux kernel and the Windows bootloader. The problem seems to be somewhere later in the boot process.00:20
apollo'windows has failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. to fix the problem: 1.installtion disk 2.chooselanguage 3. click repair if that doesn't work contact for assistance00:20

DasEirenamon: see above lines00:24
renamonwheres the pastebin!?!00:25
benkay86apollo: The particular Windows error message you gave me means that the Windows bootloader can't find the file ntldr.exe.00:25
jribrenamon: paste.ubuntu.com if you want00:25
benkay86apollo: memtest will test your computer's RAM for errors. It's quite harmless to run, since it doesn't touch your hard drive.00:25
apollook so what about ntldr.exe00:26
benkay86apollo: The serial console is useful for computers without monitors, a dilemma you do not have.00:26
renamonwat do i need to paste here?00:26
benkay86apollo: As far as I know, the only way to see that error message is if the partition number of your Windows partition was changed, but I don't think that's the case here...00:27
DasEirenamon: the output from sudo apt-get update00:27
benkay86apollo: Moreover, Linux shouldn't freeze on boot without displaying some sort of error message :-(00:27
apolloi shifted that partition to left using gparted. there was unallocated space before my partition00:28
renamonnvm it just started to wark. YAYS!!!!!00:28
DasEiapollo: unset the quiet/splash in grub, can have output00:28
ardchoilleZykoticK9: And I see that you can't disable the user list in gdm either00:28
benkay86apollo: Oh, that may actually have caused the problem.00:28
apollocool. how to fix?00:28
benkay86DasEi: I believe that's what booting in recovery mode does.00:28
DasEirenamon: the recovery automates some apt-locks, so be fine then00:29
renamonone more small q. is it possible to have diff backgrounds on diff desktops on the same system?00:29
benkay86DasEi: I recall the last line apollo described was just some IRQ enumeration. Nothing to suggest anything was amiss.00:29

benkay86DasEi: What do you mean?00:30
madoDasEi, ok ... i'm back ... but it still didn't do the trick ... the applets that were once there when ubuntu was freshly installed still aren't here00:30

ubottuAntivirus is something you don't need on !Linux, except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus01:10

Deviouzok I will try01:10
vadimanrirahduke, that is what I did, and when I activeate the second display and click on the "save to X Configuration" button, I get the error message saying "Failed to parse existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'!"01:10
Deviouzand then install it, then what do I do if its black again?01:10
madoDasEi, *nods slightly* understood ... well ... if you're tired ... then you should go to bed *smiles*01:10
DasEibenkay86: hmm, ctrl+c ? ctrl-alt-delete ?01:10

benkay86DasEi: Tried ctrl-alt-del too.01:11
Deviouzrahduke, is there anything more I need to do after install?01:11
vadimanriHyperstream, I am new to Linux and don't really know what I should be doing at this point!01:11
rahdukevadimanri: it works for me, the only reason u should have that error is if u are not able to save the file because u are not root01:11
hyperstreamrahduke, or he doesnt have a xorg.conf thats parsable :)01:12
rahdukeDeviouz: the package will walk u thru the setup, then just reboot and it should work....01:12
Deviouzwhat if its black?01:12
ectrazThis will probably be a stupid question, can someone guide me on installing ATI Restricted Drivers!?01:13
rahdukeDeviouz: so what u needa do is drop into console Alt+F2 then stop gdm 'sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop' then locate ur package and type 'sudo .sh ./NAME OF PACKAGE01:13
DasEibenkay86: next approach is then boot live cd, rebuild initramfs, maybe blacklist that forcedeth, (irq 16 to 22, maybe another device missing then ?) check syslog and maybe more of dmesg01:13
hyperstreamectraz, System > Administration > Hardware Drivers01:13

krysisand the script would ask "Are you sure you want to run this script, it could be harmful to your computer if you do not know what it does"01:37
krysissomething like that01:37
apolloonly at 85%....01:37
armandohi there01:38
dirk__gday, could anyone tell me wether its possible to boot ubuntu at a certain time (by cron i.e.)01:38
Rap2I guess the download page dosent give a choice between 32 and 64 bit, should I just dig around the ftp site?01:38
rahdukedirk__: im not sure but i'd be curious to find out if u are able to boot ur PC remotely. If so how did u do it?01:39
sabestowell, seems like #samba is asleep01:39
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: do you have anything else to tell me?01:39
krysisdirk__: if ubuntu is off, it is off, there is no way to run ANY computer with any system while its off01:39
krysisany program* while the system is off01:39
dirk__it worked with windows.... ^^01:40
rahdukekrysis: umm i think u can boot a computer that is off remotely, i dunno how tho01:40
krysisin what sense dirk__ was your computer completely off?01:40
armandotry with wake on lan01:40
sabestoWOL, wake on lan01:40
rahdukewake on lan!01:40
apolloBenkay86? no errors :(01:40
krysiswol works if the system is completely shut off?01:40
rahdukethats it, i was trying to think of that all day yesterday01:40
krysisthat would be a hardware feature would it not?01:41
OzzmanNTkrysis: yes01:41
rahdukekrysis: it works as long as there is lan and power plug in, so ive heard01:41
dirk__well hibernate to hdd would be ok01:41
dirk__but thats the same thing in that case isnt it?01:41
apolloBenkay you there?01:41
Picikrysis: WOL is a BIOS feature01:41
OzzmanNTkrysis: that feature has been in BIOSs since....well a LONG time01:42
armandothats rigght01:42
Mike_lifeguardGuest794: dunno ... did you mount it ok? get stuck with the command to mount it ...?01:42
krysisI've never actually come across WOL01:42
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: Yes01:42
Mike_lifeguardGuest794: yes to which question?01:42
boss_mcquick question, I have a php page on my site that used to be served fine through apache2 but suddenly, clicking the link just sits on receiving data, without ever serving the page... can anyone think of why this might have happened?01:42
rahdukeanyone got an updated WOL guide for 9.10?01:42
dirk__but i dont wanna wake on lan, i wanna wake on cron do u guys know anything about that?01:43
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: I got stuck with the command to mount it.01:43
sabestowol doesnt have anything to do with the OS01:43
armandoany one knows how to jump the windows firewall??01:43
OzzmanNTkrysis: it's a pretty neat feature and even a bunch of devices support it now, you can even have u'r router wake u'r computers now (with DD-WRT)01:43
ardchoillearmando: ask in #windows01:43
Mike_lifeguardGuest794: ok, could you paste the output of blkid to p.defau.lt for me?01:43
benkay86apollo: Sorry, still here.01:43
rahdukeOzzmanNT: i was running DD-WRT for a while, never got that to work tho01:43
apolloalright no errors01:43
krysisahhh, yes i've herad of DD-WRT, very interesting...01:43
sabestoyes, a DD-WRT router could wake a computer at certain time01:44
hyperstreamrahduke, the solution to vadimanri 's xorg nvidia issue was running: sudo nvidia-xconfig :)01:44
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: I type blkid and it comes out with nothing01:44
OzzmanNTrahduke: WOL i've found to be very iffy on working with all computers01:44
rahdukehyperstream: lol...01:44
rahdukei suk01:44
Mike_lifeguardGuest794: try doing 'sudo blkid' then?01:44
Mike_lifeguard(Assuming you have sudo access)01:44
rahdukeOzzmanNT: so its a pain to setup?01:44
apolloi don't know what else to do i ahve linux mint ready to be booted from a different usb if all else fails... i just need an os for school tomorrow.01:45
krysisdirk__:  you have to understand that once a computer is turned off it has no control over an operating system (such as ubuntu) the system is turned to BIOS, and unless your bios supports some sort of timer to turn on (unless its wake on lan) it cannot be done from the operating system level01:45
benkay86apollo: So, my guess is you'd like to have XP back since I really don't know what the problem with Linux is.01:45
OzzmanNTrahduke: well WOL in DD-WRT works but some machines seem to work differently, don't ask me why, i guess it's a BIOS thing, 150 computers and only half will WOL01:45
sysdocIs there a way to export the package list in Synaptic so you can import it to another install?01:45
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: where is "p.defau.lt"01:45
benkay86apollo: Although I suppose you could try installing the netbook remix just for shits.01:45
Mike_lifeguardGuest794: http://p.defau.lt01:45
boss_mc.msg ubottu clone01:46
apollothats a good idea.01:46

boss_mc!clone > sysdoc01:46
ubottusysdoc, please see my private message01:46
krysisdirk__: also if windows does it then it must use wake on lan01:46
OzzmanNTrahduke: either use that or tomato both are awesome, and you can get more power out of the router, linksys i assume?01:46
dirk__hmmmm, in windows i was able to add a schedule task to wake it up01:46
apollowow, still 680 mb?01:46
dirk__didnt have to go to the bios01:47
Guest794Mike_lifeguard: okay, now what?01:47
krysiswell windows might have communicated with the bios... dirk__01:47
Guest32569Is this #ubuntu?01:47
sysdocboss_mc, woot!01:47
rahdukeOzzmanNT: whats tomato? yes its linksys, but when i ran DDWRT on my last router i didnt notice a difference01:47
dirk__jea, could be01:47
Mike_lifeguardGuest32569: give me the link so I can see what you pasted01:47
boss_mcsysdoc: w00t indeed, and more importantly.... sleep time!01:47
Guest32569I hope this is a good place to ask this question.  I just installed Ubuntu as a dual boot with my development machine.  I installed 9.1 64-bit. When it boots, I get to a grub shell(?), not any kind of GUI at all.  Did my install fail?  Do I need to do something to get a GUI up?01:48
krysisim afraid i can't help you with this dirk__01:48
rahdukekrysis: your giving out bunk info man01:48
dirk__so that probably was my question.... can ubuntu communicate with the bios01:48
dirk__but thx for ur help, ill search around a bit more01:48
krysiswell rahduke do you have a solution?01:48
sabestodirk_: its probably a special function in the bios01:48
dirk__thx anyway krysis01:48
rahdukeno, and im keepin my mouth shut about it01:49
myshirwmHi, could someone help me? I have googled the heck out of this problem with no avail.01:49

FloodBot1myshirwm: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:50
rahdukekrysis: im not here to argue, but when i dont try to help ppl without sufficient info...thats good manners01:50
rahduke*but i dont try to help01:50
benkay86apollo: As far as getting Windows to work, you will need some sort of bootable USB image to work with. I don't think Microsoft makes one available officially, but I suspect you can find something on Google. You'll want to use some combination of the commands chkdsk, bootcfg, and fixboot.01:50
apolloalright. i'll figure something out01:51
apollothanks a bunch though01:51

myshirwmany suggestions for mounting an iso that returns an error?01:54
Guest32569Sorry, 9.10... It reminds me of a Unix command line shell.  There are two words seperated by a '/' character, and the last word is grub.  typing help listed several commands I could try, but i gigured I'd probably break something. Anyway, I'm just wondering whether this is normal, or should I expect to see a GUI?  The install led me to believe I'd end up with a GUI01:54
Mike_lifeguardGuest32569: yeah, that's not right - but I'm no expert, you'll need help from someone else for that :(01:55

Guest794How do I fix broken packages in ubuntu?02:25
guest4127145okay... here's my situation... I'm trying to install Kubuntu 9.10 i386 (I know this is #ubuntu) onto a partition that has data on it already... it's a 100GB ext3 partition. During the partition setup of the graphical install, I told it to size the partition to 90GB and change it to ext4, without formatting...02:25
macohatebred: well could also be that you have your mic muted or something...02:25
guest4127145everything was gone... so I tried to reverse it by telling it to set the size back to 100GB and the partition to ext3... still nothing....02:25
eric_3Zykotick9: are you a bot?02:25
macohatebred: but im assuming you checked all that02:25

`mOOse`guest4127145, yer SOL02:26
hatebredThis started because I wanted to use skype. did a test call , no in audio02:26
`mOOse`you overwrote your partition table02:26
hatebredSo I tried sound recorder.. no audio02:27
macohatebred: yeah so file a bug02:27
hatebreda few howtos said it was a pulseaudio issue02:27

myshirwmdoes anyone have any suggestions about mounting an iso so that it's visible in nautilus?02:28

woodyjlwanyone know of a good irc channel to visit about network and wireless security?02:28
guest4127145`mOOse`: bah... thanks02:28

macohatebred: well really im assuming you have an HDA chip. do you?02:29
guest4127145`mOOse`: how come MS can resize then?02:29
`mOOse`since when?02:29
hatebredHow would I pull the info?02:29
macohatebred: less /proc/asound/card0/codec#002:30
`mOOse`not and keep data02:30
eddymZykoticK9, np02:30
macohatebred: first line tells you what the basic codec you're using is, to know which .c to look in02:30
guest4127145well not natively... 3rd party apps can... Acronis Disk Director and Partition magic off the top of my head02:30
guest4127145can resize and keep data02:30
`mOOse`partition magic can do it - but not native windows02:30
macohatebred: then the "Subsystem Id:" line will give you a long hex number like 0x1043828402:31
Dr_WillisIve used vista to resize ntfs and keep data.. (i think it was vista)02:31
macohatebred: in the case of my laptop, you'd look for "1043" in that file and see if there's anywhere that shows "8284" next to it.. but ya know, use your numbers02:31
guest4127145I suppose I should've used the tried and true method of Hirens. I don't know why I didn't.. figured that would be something simple enough for Kubuntu's installer to handle02:31
`mOOse`if you didn't set up your system initially with LVM (which MS also uses by default) then your sol I think02:31
WilliamWallaceanyone?  :-(02:31
`mOOse`oh, bad decision :-)02:31

guest4127145well now that I'm basically starting from scratch on my drive, is there a way I should be setting up LVM during the install process?02:33
`mOOse`I don't know02:34
`mOOse`ask in there02:34
`mOOse`I'm not sure the gui install gives you the option02:34
krysisits useful to install /home on another partition02:35
`mOOse`I know in suse, yast can do it with partimage02:35
woodyjlwis there a way to delete old ssid and password history in ubuntu02:35
`mOOse`but I'm not sure about kubuntu02:35
guest4127145I should look into lvm... I've seen a lot of talk about it but never actually did any research into it02:35
macokrysis: eh. only if you're afraid one partition will corrupt and the other won't. since ubuntu's installer supports keeping /home when doing a clean install, the old usefulness is a bit moot02:35
guest4127145is it worth the time and effort?02:35
`mOOse`xbuntu has what they call an "alternate install" iso that has a text-based install that you definitely can02:36
=== ubuntu is now known as lacita
guest4127145other than for the sake of just the knowledge that is02:36
`mOOse`yes, it's quite handy02:36
`mOOse`you can dynamically adjust your partitions02:36
Dr_WillisIve gotten where i just keep my partion layout more and more simple. :)02:36
`mOOse`yes, that's the best way!02:36
guest4127145I'm used to text based... I used to run Debian only so I'm good on that front02:36
Dr_Willisbut it helps that i have like 4 hard drives.. one for /, one for /home02:37
Dr_Willisand so on.02:37
lacitaAnybody know much about formatting partitions using parted?02:37
`mOOse`I'm really liking xbuntu so far02:37
guest4127145heh.. I use 4 partitions... / /tmp /home swap02:37
Dr_Willislacita:  parted partions.. you then format using the proper commands02:37
`mOOse`except for the little clonezilla fiasco the other night (which I'm not rebuilding because of)02:37
Dr_Willisguest4127145:  i got /home on its own hard drive. :) not juist its own partition02:37
lacitaDr_Willis: sdc1 has been set up, but I can't get it formatted to "Dell Utility" using parted. I can do it in fdisk, but the problem is that fdisk doesn't support GUID Partition Tables (gpt) which is what I formatted the disk to so that I could have a sexy storage partition over 2TB in size.02:37
guest4127145yeah that's the best way to do it02:38
bleepbloopcan banshee play m4a files?02:38
Dr_Willislacita:  no idea. Ive never needed to use gpt. and i tend to just 'remove' dell utility partitions02:38

QuirklyI assume it might, since networking shouldn't be too affected, but I dunno03:56
MacBookUserYour wifi is not related with gdm03:56

ubuntuFishquirkly, there is a nice tutorial for setting up wireless from command line, let me just track it down03:56
arghh2d2Quirkly: i's /etc/rc.something, then you gointo the folder for runlevel 5 maybe /etc/something/rc.5?  then you rename S.gdm to K.gdm...i'm not using ubuntu so i dont know exactly but thats the jist of what you have to do03:56
arghh2d2Quirkly: GDM has nothing to do with your networking03:57

I have a problem where full-screen applications always get displayed half-and-half, with one half on the left and another on the right.

arghh2d2Quirkly: did you get your box to boot to console?04:29
mrpink57think43: I think that is a comopiz type feature04:29
IzinucsTheMusicGuy: possibly.. there's a couple of things going on.. one is the size of "x" which could be a measurement of both monitors resolutions combined.. that's how it stretches across both.. then there's the limitation of the actual size of each monitor.. google for help with "xrandr" and "xrandr dual monitor ubuntu" that might shed some light on the situation04:29
ardchoillethink43: you can use gnome-shell for that or compiz has a feature that does that04:29
ben_bazhang, does xbmc support blu ray?04:30
Quirklyarghh2d2, yea, obliterated gdm04:30
Quirklyalthough in retrospect, xubuntu-desktop was all that needed to go04:30
sconehello.  I have the most bizzare issue: I don't know what you'd call it but during startup and shut down of both the livecd and an install on the HP workstation I'm using, the system will hang until I press a key or move the mouse04:30
arghh2d2Quirkly: you still have networking?04:30
QuirklyHOWEVER, arghh2d2 my suspicious about the wireless were confirmed04:30
Quirklyno, didn't04:30
TheMusicGuyIzinucs: Okay, I'll try that. Thank you.04:30
AMAMthink43: here on my OpenSUSE, it's called "Scale: initiate window picker"04:30
think43Ubuntu 9.10 has composing including, you don't have to go install compiz yourself.  But I don't know how to change the settings04:30
Quirklygot on from other computer, then forgot to just manually run startx, which then kicked the wireless in right away04:30
think43AMAM, yep, that what I wanted, thanks04:31
arghh2d2Quirkly: you could switch to netcfg or wicd instead of network manager04:31
Quirklyso yeah, now just reading how to connect to wireless via commandline04:31
Quirkly???? k, you just about lost me there, lol04:31
Quirklybut umm....yeah lemme check stuffs out04:31
arghh2d2Quirkly: netcfg is for wireless wpa connections from command line...wicd has an ncurses interface04:32
QuirklyI can handle ncurses interface, installing now04:32
arghh2d2wicd has regular gui too04:32
ben_anyone here know if xbmc supports blu ray?04:32

ben_thank you again04:33
rich97ardchoille: If I simply do "mv dir ." then it complains the dir is the same as ./dir. The problem isn't with moving the files it's that the * wildcard ignores hidden files. I'm trying to do this: "mv dir/* ."04:33
kcowolfI've tried both Vino and x11vnc with an SSH tunnel; as soon as I try to connect to the port the connection gets closed.  I can SSH into my box with no problems.  Anyone have any ideas how I could track down the problem?04:33
arghh2d2Quirkly: you'll need to get wicd to run in your /etc/rc.whatever folder maybe...like i said, i'm not on ubuntu right now, i'm just giving you clues04:34
ardchoillerich97: are you trying to do something weird like move a dir within itself?04:34
think43Looks like you have install the compiz-config-manager, and then configure it04:34
arghh2d2Quirkly: runlevel three is multiuser command line04:34
googolwhat is the command to fix a ntfs filesystem04:34

rich97ardchoille: No, I'm trying to move all of the contents of ./dir into .04:35
lacitaFauntix: it's a disk check utility.04:35
papshmearFauntix, nothing's wrong04:36
Fauntix@lacita: ok how do i fix it04:36
mrpink57its just a disk check my startup always does a fsck.jfs04:36

Fauntixbut mine freezes and doesnt move04:36
papshmearFauntix, unless it says disk error don't worry about it04:36
ardchoillerich97: mv ./dir/* .04:36
lacitaFauntix: I don't think you do... It may signal a potential corruption in youre hard drive...04:36
rich97ardchoille: Yeah, that's what I was doing. But it dosn't move .git or .gitignore04:37
rich97Only folders without the . prefix04:37

NoTownKasperQuestion: Installed Vega Strike, it runs just fine if I execute the binary from within it's folder (So I assume the problem isn't with the program itself), but if I set up a gnome link, even directly to that same binary, it fails to load...any ideas on how to fix it?04:59
meepmoopBaloo1:what are you trying to do with your ps3?04:59

transonichey guys..can anyone suggest some lightweight browser05:00
ThatGuyOverTheretransonic: You mean you don't like Firefox? Heretic. :p05:00
QuirklyNoTownKasper: perhaps it only likes running from within it's own folder...possibly make a script to cd to that folder, and then run it?05:00
cfeddethere are none.  Chrome is pretty fast.05:00
Baloo1yeah maybe play some emus and type papers wen i need too im on an sdtv05:00
ThatGuyOverTheretransonic: There's Epiphany.05:00
mrpink57rich97: is the hold folder chmod 777?05:00
gvj@lacita ya i am back05:00
ThatGuyOverTheretransonic: Don't know much about it, though.05:00
lacitagvj: any luck05:00
NoTownKasperQuirkly: That would be a little out of my league without a walkthrough...know of one?05:00
catorceavowhy did my sound suddenly stop working!05:00
transonicThatguyoverthere: hmm..will try it05:01
meepmoopBaloo1:I don't really know more than how to just stream media movies/music if that's what you're looking to do I would suggest Ushare05:01
QuirklyNoTownKasper: a script would be a text file, .sh, with a couple commands, cd /path/to/file and then ./filename to run it05:01
Quirklydon't know any walkthroughs offhand, but the last step after saving that file, would be to chmod +x05:01
Quirklyto make it run05:01
abhijithow to add extra places menu in 'Places'?05:01
rich97mrpink57: No a couple of the files in .git folder only have read permissions but it should still be able to copy should it not?05:01
Baloo1wats ushare05:01
NoTownKasperHrm, worth a try, I'll give it a whirl.05:01
Quirklythen umm, yeah, just run it I guess......I'm just guessing not sure if that's the problem or not05:01
ThatGuyOverThereDoes anybody know how to set up a network bridge? Come on!05:02
Quirklyit's the first thing I'd try, given what you said about the situation, that's all05:02
rich97mrpink57: Also it is able to copy if I don't use your cp command. Otherwise it gives me a permission error.05:02
meepmoopBaloo1:it's software used to stream media from your pc to your ps305:02
mrpink57rich97: well I think you are going to need full permission to move unless you put a sudo ahead of it.  However that will give full permission to root once moved not the user.05:02
NoTownKasperQuirkly: just to make sure I have syntax correct, (1st line) cd ~/vegastrike-0.5.0/bin/   (2nd line) ./vegastrike-3205:04

imaarghh2d2, x runs05:06

ThatGuyOverThereOkay, does anybody know anything about Firestarter? I'm trying to use it for internet connection sharing.05:07
kbrosnanFancycakes: http://check.torproject.org/ or https://check.torproject.org/05:07
arghh2d2ima: X runs from startx?05:07

MrObviousIt is a HP Deskjet 3940.05:09

Quirklylol mrpink57 fair enough, just gotta say, it used to overwhelm me, but after reading a tutorial, I can see the power it possesses05:10
mrpink57rich97: you could also chmod 755 which gives full rights to owner but only read execute to group05:10

uoryglEllo. I'm trying to set up Ubuntu to act as a router. I've created a wireless network, but computers that connect to it aren't receiving IP addresses. Under the network's IPv4 settings, I have the Method set to "Shared to other computers"; is this what I want?05:21
imaarghh2d2, yes05:21

imaarghh2d2, it initializes and I get a fullscreen x session with only my cursor.05:22
ShwackIzinucs: Thanks.  Brother MFC-7820N followed full Brother installation instructions.     dpkg -l | grep Brother returns all the correct drivers - printing is still slow as watching paint dry in water.05:22
mrpink57kheera: since I do not know can you configure HAL in Ubuntu?05:22
Izinucseduhat: or install server then add whatever desktop manager you want05:22
lacitaIzinucs: No "Dell Utility" support in gparted. fdisk can do it, but it doesn't support gpt.05:22
IzinucsShwack: you might have done something wrong or not finished yet.. my brother mfc-7440n works fine.. with the exception of fax.. I haven't been able to get that to work yet05:23

gdbxixo1983: We understand that.  Your software (in this case Zend Studio) is not being managed by the system.  You can't use the system's package management to remove it.  You will have to figure out where it is installed and remove it by hand (ie; with rm -rf).06:21
imaIzinucs, yes, but often it says  the package is already installed, so to reinstall a package I uninstall then reinstall?06:21
ripso I cant hide fromo my isp06:22
gdbima: You can reinstall software without first removing it.06:22
gdbima: aptitude reinstall <package_name>06:22
Izinucsima: no.. ubuntu-desktop will pull what it needs.. give it a shot and see.06:22
gdbxixo1983: Then removing it is simple.  $ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/Zend06:22
imagdb, thank you06:22
imaIzinucs, yeah I'll try it, be back in a bit06:22
gdbima: Sure thing.  I'm not sure if apt-get has reinstall as an option, but aptitude certainly does.06:22
icerootxixo1983: if i am correct you can disable zend in php.ini06:23
Izinucsima: you can also apt-get reinstall ubuntu-desktop06:23
prettyplmmwhat's the difference between "route" and "ip route"06:23
gdbprettyplmm: In what context?06:23
tyler_done has an "ip " in front prettyplmm06:23
ripit that was true than how do hackers hide from there isp? Use a slow proxy address06:23
icerootprettyplmm: man route   man ip06:23
hyperstreamrip,  works kinda like this Application>ISP> there is where the isp blocks the PORT its using, how ever you can use a proxy to generally bypass website filter(80) by connection to the proxy(its not black listed) then use the proxy to get the content and send it back through the chain06:23
hyperstreamrip, they dont06:24
hyperstreamrip they have to connect to it to use it lol06:24
xixo1983 if i am correct you can disable zend in php.ini ?06:24
icerootxixo1983: yes06:24
prettyplmmexplain more please?06:24
xixo1983then what will happend06:24
icerootxixo1983: /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini06:24
xixo1983i will disable06:25
icerootxixo1983: its not being used then06:25
gdbprettyplmm: You've not given enough information to give you a complete answer.  For most intents and purposes, "route" and "ip route" mean the same thing.  Like "car" and "automobile".  What context are you referring to?06:25
xixo1983whether i should use rm -rf /usr/local/Zend06:25
prettyplmmgdb: are they all using the kernel to process? i'm new to routing06:26
hyperstreamxixo1983, and remove it from PHP, or your apache server might not start.06:26
hyperstreamPHP = apache/php06:26
=== eaglewatch is now known as EagleWatch
prettyplmmdo they have the same performence?06:26
riplol I keep changing proxy address but the movies are so slow.lol But then after a day are to I get the blocked message from my isp. :(  incognito06:26
icerootxixo1983: dont use rm -rf for testing, use "mv" to rename it06:27
gdbprettyplmm: So far, all I can tell is that you're asking the difference between two things that aren't different so I can't answer your question.  Routing is handled by the kernel, yes.06:27
prettyplmmgdb: thank you for your help06:27

Izinucsthat would make me an older06:33

enavcan u help me pleas?06:41
GSF1200Sive recently setup firefox to store cache data in a temporary filesystem in ram. I can see that firefox is storing to /tmp, but how can I verify that its using ram instead of disk?06:41
cycrosismi can try06:41
enavthat motherboard says that support AM2, AM2+  cpus   What is that06:41
cycrosismamd dual core06:42
enavthe same Mainboard can hanndle both cpu types?06:42
macoenav: certain models of AMD CPUs are AM2 or AM2+ sockets06:42
jguzikowskiwhat other desktop environments are there, gnome, xfce, kde?06:43
kinja-sheepjguzikowski: LXDE.06:43
enavi mean  can i use my AM2 Atlhon in that motherboard?06:43
kinja-sheepjguzikowski: Openbox, Blackbox.06:43
jguzikowskioh right, blackbox and openbox06:43
macojguzikowski: for full DEs, yeah LXDE, but other than that... there are standalone window managers like Fluxbox, Openbox, etc. Enlightenment, Xmonad, twm, dwm...06:43
jguzikowskiwhats puppy linux use?06:44
macokinja-sheep: i wouldnt call those DEs.  they dont have associated sets of applications. theyre just window managers06:44
macojguzikowski: Enlightenment 17 seems it will be a full DE when its done, while 16 and older were just window managers06:44
jguzikowskiohh really? i loved e16 now that im thinking about it06:44
Brokenhello all06:45
macojguzikowski: yeah when i tried e17 in 2007, they had a file manager and a music player and a few other things they were working on06:45
jguzikowskimaco,  thats awesome..any idea when that'll be available?06:45
=== user is now known as Guest10326
macojguzikowski: e17 has been in development for 7 years right now i think. i think its also still considered alpha (because its not feature complete... those apps arent done. not because of stability...its rock solid)06:46
jguzikowskiwow..alphas available i assume? i may wanna try this out06:47
macojguzikowski: yep yep. i built it from source on debian etch in 2007, but i imagine there are debs now. there were debs in sid at the time...06:47

maco!minimal | aporetic06:53
ubottuaporetic: 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/MinimalCD06:53
pwnedulongtimeaporetic, xubuntu ...gnome and kde is silly?06:53
macoaporetic: just dont choose a -desktop task when doing the install06:53

mtx_initif your computer cannot boot from a usb flash drive, then it does not have the internal instructions to bootstrap to that device.  You will likely have to use a 3rd item like a cd boot loader or a hard drive and chain it to the usb drive07:20

jj3124okay nothing popped up07:27
bastyI just installed an ubuntu 9.10 on a Dell PowerEdge R410 - Installation done without any problems. After the reboot, it seems that grub cant find the root dir. So it is not booting - i dont even see the boot screen. It just ends with the recovery shell. Does anyone know, how to solve that Problem ?07:27
Xeddyjj3124: it didn't ask you for the password?07:28
jj3124Xeddy, no just gave me a new line of terminal07:28
mehhehpetsounds:  so what do i do i save teh file as is adn then what07:28
Xeddyjj3124: is it a prompt like > or is it just a blank line?07:28
mehhehpetsounds: just the tutoral is confusing me. i dont get it07:28
Xeddyjj3124: cause if its just a blank line then you'll need to type your password there07:28

RowanNetbook is being a PITA with trying to install.07:32
Rowanhyperstream: The first ISO I used with UNetbootin threw me into a terminal mode (ash) and I couldn't get anywhere from there.07:32
Xeddyjj3124: Just FYI it's not such a good idea to install one OS on top of the other or like reinstall the OS.. it's always a better option to just backup your personal data and format/delete the partitions.07:32

hyperstreamRowan, ahh07:35
RowanNew ISO is only at 76% right now downloading, so I have a bit of time before I get to try again, but with that happening, I've been getting frustrated.07:35
hyperstreamRowan, no bios support?07:35
Josh90lot's of work07:35
Rowanthere must be /some/ bios support.  unetbootin /ran/.07:35
hyperstreamRowan, does your bios support booting from a USB device?07:35
Rowanhyperstream: if those had helped, I wouldn't be here.07:35
RowanI'm not /sure/.07:35
MTec007Rowan: the only thing i can come up with is this, and i know its not helping you much: "Reboot your Aspire One with the USB stick in one of its USB sockets. When you see the BIOS screen, hit F12 to select the USB stick as the boot device. This will cause the Aspire One to boot the Debian installer from the USB stick."07:35
hyperstreamRowan, hard to mind read if your've seen those sites, sorry.07:36
RowanMTec007: That general principle should help, I think.07:36
jj3124Xeddy, got that su working now07:36
* Rowan is not totally incompetent when it comes to computers, but prefers to follow directions that work, not ones that don't.07:36

MTec007Rowan: i got that from this website: http://wiki.debian.org/DebianAcerOne#Install07:37
RowanBrand new, just got it today.07:37
Josh90I am having trouble getting root asscess07:37
jj3124Xeddy, k, did that07:37

Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords07:38
Xeddyjj3124: That should do the trick, now try installing the theme07:38
jj3124Xeddy, sigh..still saying the same insufficient permissions07:38
RowanI'm waiting for the ISO to download and burn now.  And then I'm going to go grab my macbook so that I can stay on IRC while I do this.07:39
Rowanalso, would removing the wireless adapter for my mouse have any effect?07:39
hyperstreamRowan, does it have some kind of model number?07:39
jj3124Xeddy, if I browse over to where .themes is theres a big lock on it07:39
Josh90No trying to put something in the file system and it says i do not have permission. Even tho i have the administrator07:39
MTec007Rowan couldnt hurt to remove it07:39
hyperstream!sudo | Josh9007:39

Xeddyjj3124: it still probably has the old permissions from your previous install... I'd recommend googling for how to reset folder permissions or something like that07:40
jj3124Xeddy, okay, t hanks for all your help07:40
Xeddyjj3124: Np, good luck with the googling :)07:40

Rowanthe model number is letters and numbers that don't stick well in my head.07:40

jj3124Think I might just do a compeltely fresh intstall of ubuntu on the hard drive07:41
RowanRight, k.  (I'm on my netbook right now, which isn't making any of this easier, mind you.)07:41

indusmtx_init, Xeddy yes i believe sudo wont work, visudo also seems not to work in ubuntu07:45

GeekpiratHey guys. I made a litte update script via bin/bash. It keeps me asking "do you want to install this and that [y/n]". How can I disable that to get rid of the user interaktion07:54
ardchoilleGeekpirat: pastebinning the script might help07:56
ubottuFor posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://tinyurl.com/imagebin | !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.07:56
Rowanalright, reboot and install time.07:56
Geekpiratthank you07:56
Geekpiratwill try that07:56
ardchoilleGeekpirat: But, if your script is calling some apt-get function, you may not want to disable that as it might be the system keeping your packages managed properly07:58
Geekpiratardchoille: I only used some apt-get install, update and upgrade functions07:59
Geekpiratardchoille: I wonder how this could be bad...as I will answer them with "yes" anyways...08:00
ardchoillegeekbuntu: right, and I'll bet the user interaction is apt-getdoing its job08:00
ardchoilleGeekpirat: why not use a bash alias instead of a script?08:01
mrb427can anyone help me fix this line of script? for k in $(ls *.cropped.png); do octave -q --eval 'gen_pers_stats("$k")'; done08:01
ardchoilleGeekpirat: this is what I use:    alias updateall='aptud && aptug && echo "Update complete"'08:02
Geekpiratardchoille: Because I used different stuff in the script. Downloading Opera from the website via wget and in the future it should configure the DNS entries (uning opendns) and stuff like that08:02
ardchoilleGeekpirat: Ah, nice08:02
MyrttiGeekpirat: the most disasterous scripts seen on this channel have "assumed yes"08:03
ardchoilleGeekpirat: it's not good to allow a script to assume yes, better to watch things08:03
Akosgood morning08:03
ardchoilleThat's why I use a bash alias and not a script08:03
Geekpiratardchoille: I understand it is a bit dangerous. But I will try the script first in a VM many times before using it.08:04
ardchoillemrb427: why not:  for k in *.cropped.png;   ?08:05
Geekpiratardchoille: Even if the script makes damages its not THAT problematic. because its a script only run once after a clean reinstall of ubuntu.08:05
ardchoillegeekbuntu: That'sthe same thing I heard from the developer of Automatix08:06
Geekpiratardchoille: It should only do the stuff I will do anyway on my laptop autonaticly08:06
ardchoilleGeekpirat: Ok, it's your system08:06
ardchoillemrb427: you don't need the "ls" bit because the loop will loop through each file ending in .cropped.png anyway08:07
Geekpiratardchoille: In fact, I ruin my system nearly once a month ^^ so, why not ruin it twice...08:07
mrb427ardchoille: yeah, but then i still have the problem that k is in double quotes at the end of the line, so it puts in the char k and not the variable k08:08
ardchoillemrb427: use $k to specify the variable k08:08
ardchoille"k" will yield a "k"08:08
ardchoillemrb427: example:  for k in *.cropped.png; do echo $k; done08:09
mrb427ardchoille: i still seem to have the same problem : /08:09
mrb427ardchoille: yeah but the problem is that the $k is in double quotes in my script08:11

tomatoes7tell tico08:15
ardchoillemrb427: I'm telling you the for k in *.cropped.png is not the problem in your code, the problem lies elsewhere08:15

nsgnhowdy. i need to trigger a script from evolution's filter rules. the "run program" filter action being set to a script with execute permissions does nothing. what gives?08:16

indushome, try deleting xorg conf , then do sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg09:31
arandadifire: What you do in that case is make the 30_os-prober script unexecutable: "chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober" the run update-grub, which won't read the 30_ script and not add windows, then when you want it back you just make the 30_ script executable again with +x (in the chmod command) and then run update-grub again.09:31

arandindus: /boot/grub/grub.cfg is the equivalence, but you shouldn't edit that... atm the creation of the lists are all baked into the helper scripts09:34
pweezySlart: no i mean the "cannot log in as root in bash" setting09:34
arandindus: So there is no proper equivalence, no.09:35
Slartpweezy: hmm.. not sure about that really.. make sure root has a valid login shell in /etc/passwd09:35

knxvillemind-gi, tried updating your graphic drivers?10:37
obaidexactly 5 minutes ?10:37
tparcinaobaid: iptables isn't complicated for me, just I don't understand why Ubuntu loads this configuration.10:37

collabramind-gi: check your screensaver10:37
mind-gii haven't updated my graphic drivers. how can i do that?10:38

tparcinaknxville: Me either. I have check /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/iptaload and it says iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.rules10:38
knxvillemind-gi, if its every 5 minutes, it's because your screensaver is dimming every 5 minutes.. as obaid said, its screensaver or powersaver10:38

obaidi dont know about KDE, never used it turtle^s0up10:44
obaidChaosR, daemons would log errors, can you check them10:45
turtle^s0upobaid: thanks for the hint10:45
ChaosRobaid: checking every log from every started program is a bit extensive10:45
ChaosRobaid: the scripts are simply never run10:45
ChaosRobaid: somewhere the boot process goes like meh and stops running, and trows in my kde-login10:46
obaidChaosR, if you have added some services to start on boot, you should use update-rc.d10:46
ChaosRobaid: rc.local seems pretty default to me, plus stuff was working a week ago10:47
obaidChaosR, checking your logs are the only way to see what is the problem10:47
ChaosRobaid: where are the boot logs, I can't seem to remember where they are10:48
ChaosRwhich file10:48
jokeheadwhat does the "spin down hard disks" in power management do? what are the advantages and disadvantages?10:48

DantonicI'm having issues ripping CDs to flac.  The file size of the flac rips is way too big, bigger than the wav counterpart.  I've tried using both sound juicer and Rubyripper.  Any idea what's going on?11:17
tom_Dantonic: Bigger FLACs than WAVs makes no sense11:18
freakynlDantonic: no... but i would guess something is upsampling it (ie from 16kHz to 24 or from 44.1 to 48 etc)11:18
DantonicI though it just had to do with sound juicer at first, but I just tried with rubyripper and I have the same problem :(11:19
ChaosRok, this is amazing, the boot process doesn't even get to the login screen, only kdm works (not tty1-6), and only the current kernel is willing to boot, no other11:19

freakynlpersonally, after 192k ogg (with aotuv extentions) any higher doesn't do anything for me. perhaps with classical music but i don't listen to it11:25
ChaosRok, can anybody help me with this odd boot problem: No /etc/rc*.d/ script gets executed, tty1-6 don't get to the login screen, kdm does get started, only the current kernel works11:25
Dantonicfreakynl, here's a "settings" line from sound juicer:  "audio/x-raw-int,rate=44100,channels=2 ! flacenc name=enc"  is it supposed to have 2 channels?11:26

ociugi<hyperstream> ok11:48
hyperstreamociugi, you may have to add the username to the user accounts in xp, im not too sure11:49

collabraociugi: you're probably right,..  but don't forget to edit the config file in /etc/samba to allow for your printer to be shared,... it's not shared by default11:52
ociugi<collabra> actually i am the one connecting to winXP printer server11:53

shreymechAkos: but i don't think that this thing is available in newer versions.. my friends r using 9.1012:05
Akosshreymech: I believe ubuntu 8.10 doesn't have that feature, you'd be requiered to upgrade to Ubuntu 9.1012:05
rwwdocmax: the idea is that if you install a package that depends on a bunch of other packages, the one you actually want is marked as manually installed, the depends are marked automatic, and then they all go away tidily if you decide to remove the package you originally installed.12:06
shreymechAkos: but i don't think that this thing is available in newer versions.. my friends r using 9.1012:06
Akosshreymech: no need to re-post, I can see your lines (: In the latest version of ubuntu, Ubuntu 9.10, this feature is available under the Sounds options12:06
rwwshreymech: in 9.10, right-click the volume control applet, click Sound Preferences, click the Applications tab. Akos and shreymech are correct, it's a new feature.12:06

rwwshreymech: Nope. 9.10 uses a newer version of Pulseaudio that supports it; 8.10 doesn't have that version, since major package updates don't happen after release.12:09

mrparchboxman: svn is the command12:55
xoverQuan-Time: does 'rpm-pkg' a term for an RPM package or is this the name of a tool/12:56
mrpi didn't think about it too much...12:56
themwziroday: this will overwrite an old imagefile, that has the same name you give the new one12:56
Quan-Timexover: rpm -12:56
Quan-Timexover: rpm - redhat / fedora12:56
zirodaythemw: right...12:56
Quan-Timeits their style package12:56
themwziroday: but you can script this by youself, since partimage is an GUI for DD12:56
archboxmanmrp apt-cache search by file name not everything is that clear12:56
xoverQuan-Time: I know the difference, I just need to know what 'deb-pkg' and 'rpm-pkg' mean semantically!?12:57
apandai've now installed the drivers for my ati 9600 on 8.04 from the hardware drivers menu and if I log in my screen blanks, i also cant login into gnome failsafe and i'm only on the console now. from the Xorg log I think the driver has loaded properly12:57
themwziroday: if you need a really small bootable system script partimage youself, using dd, tar and gzip12:57
xoverQuan-Time: Are they just terms, I havent heard it before12:57
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto12:58
Quan-Timexover: oh.. sorry.. they are "pre compiled" packages.. if you get source, you compile it for your distro.. so it builds all the packages it needs.. a distro specific package, has everythnig you want done already.12:58
zirodaythemw: okay, I have a (fair) understanding of how to do that, however I was looking for something more shrink-wrapped. No worries, thanks!12:58
Buxnamani tried to install program and while ./configure it give me error No package 'glib-2.0' found . I have newer version of glib what should i do?12:58
xoverQuan-Time: I just realised they are 'targets for the make utility for creating packages'12:58
themwziroday: no problem, good luck!12:58
Quan-Timexover: im not sure, but i THINK deb will work on fedora, but rpm WONT work on ubuntu.. but im not certain of that.. so someone else should really comment12:58
xoverQuan-Time: its the other way around, i have installed rpms on ubunut12:59
Pici!alien | Quan-Time12:59
ubottuQuan-Time: RPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)12:59
Quan-Timexover: gotcha...13:00
Quan-TimePici: oh cool, didnt know that13:00
ubottuOther !Linux distributions besides !Ubuntu include: Debian, Mepis (using !APT); RedHat, Fedora, SUSE, Mandriva (using !RPM); Gentoo, Slackware (using other packaging systems)13:01
erikvoldhello, I'm green to ubuntu, and I've got a weird issue13:02
erikvoldI am the administrator, but I don't have permission to commands like chown, and mkdir13:02

Picierikvold: If you need to use sudo for long periods of time, use sudo -i, and you'll get a root prompt.13:03
erikvoldand git clone13:03
Picierikvold: So, run its installer (or whatever) with sudo.13:04
Johnny1Whenever I plug in one of my usb devices, It doesn't show up. Please help me!13:04
erikvoldwhen I sudo tho I think that the root's rsa key is being used which is missing it up13:04
xoverQuan-Time: cheers13:04
erikvoldbecause the root's home directory is used instead of my user's13:04
Picierikvold: sudo -i will use root's environment13:05
Picierikvold: sudo -s will use your user's environment13:05
archboxmanerikvold: you could add your self to the root group...13:05
