kelopezhow do I create a swap partition after I installed [K]Ubuntu?00:04
Magnesiumnaut: He's still joining and quitting repeatedly00:04
Magnesiumnaut: kinda annoying00:04
Jordan_Ujazz, So you want the entries for the other install to not go away again after you run update-grub? If not then I don't understand your queston.00:04
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)00:04
kelopezhow do I create a swap partition after I installed [K]Ubuntu?00:04
Gorashhowdy people!! I need a quick help. I am going absolutely nuts here! I have a Logitech Optical keyboard and my qoutes show up like this: ¨¨ ¨¨". I have tried 150*50^500:04
Jordan_Ujazz, That is, after you run update-grub without the other drive plugged in00:05
Gorashsettings.... any knows how to solve?00:05
Magnesiumnvm, y'all must have kicked him already00:05
nautkelopez: you could use gparted to create the swap partition, and then edit fstab to mount it as swap on boot.00:05
phazer11grub doesn't see my Arch Linux partitions00:05
nickiephew! i was really stressed there for a minute......00:05
kelopezok naut, thank you :)00:05

LasBuntuwhere do I put an alias for root?00:37
Jordan_Uskierkyle, No, mountpoints are just a path you can use to access another filesystem, mounting a filesystem to a mountpoint in / does not copy anything to the actual disk that / is mounted from00:37

How do I do this and if I stop blacklisting ath5, will the card be recognized?01:31

nad_Aijse, how do i get to the safe mode? i looked at the ati ref. that the forums point to, and they say its supported, and that the newest one supports as well, however i want to try to get it working, and i get way badly stuck once i restart..01:31
Aijsenad_ If you reboot you can select with arrow keys boot safemode01:32
nad_aijse, sorry to lean on you so much, i am learning and want to experiment, but i have much to learn, if it was too easy i wouldnt be here...01:32
Aijsenad_ its part of the deal01:33

almark1Hello I need to fix a my broken hardy disto but when I go to update the system with the DVD only it won't update and won't mount the DVD, how can I use a DVD to fix the problem?02:16
MrBoband due to that my battery life is hardly 8 hours, i was wondering about BIOS however i am not aware as to how to update it02:16
codebrainzMrBob, it says here "can require BIOS update plus configuration" - https://wiki.edubuntu.org/LaptopTestingTeam/AcerTimeline4810TZ02:17
Scunizialmark1: you haven't said what the problem is02:18
MrBobthanks code, however pardon me being naiive but i am new to linux (about a few months) and how would i go about updating my bios?02:18
codebrainzMrBob, it's manufacturer/computer specific, outside of the operating system02:19
almark1I'm sorry, the problem is Ubuntu Hardy will not mount the DVD02:19
MrBobi see code, so is this something i can find on this site or do you have somewhere i can turn to for help?02:20

almark1Scunizi: when I go to put the disk in in the sources and press the button, it tells me that it cant mount or I don't have a Ubuntu based disto, something is very wrong, I use 64 studio but it still suppose to work from the DVD02:20
Scunizialmark1: well. it seems you have two issues.. the mounting of the dvd and updating which can't be done with the dvd.. unless it's a recent download of the 8.04.4 dvd..  did you get the dvd or cd of ubuntu?02:20

Scunizialmark1: it's near impossible to diagnose another system.. even if it's based on ubuntu. often it's different on the backend.. sorry.02:22
Dr_Willisyou can use to upgrade/as a repo02:22
almark1Scunizi_ this sounds like I will have to redo the whole system sigh lol02:22
MrBobokay code, so i am on the page with the BIOS and which one should i updater to? there are four, all of which are newer than my version02:23
Scunizialmark1: why did you choose that distro instead of ubuntu?02:23
sebsebsebMrBob: It seems that using Linux to Flash a BIOS  on a lap top would be a bad idea http://apcmag.com/flashrom-091-hunts-down-more-chips-in-the-wild.htm02:24
MrBobok so instead i should go on windows and update the bios?02:24
almark1Scunizi_ because Ubuntu Studio wasn't letting me update and it broke when I did, if something usualy is funny with a disto I jump around lol, im sure millions of Linux uses do that :)02:24
codebrainzMrBob, no idea, it's mfg specific, it used to be run on floppies, now probably from windows or something, it should be documented somewhere, or call them02:25
almark1Scunizi_ I think its time for another jump02:25
sebsebsebMrBob: Well  read the article and you tell me?  However yes it's probably better to use Windows to Flash the BIOS.02:25
Scunizialmark1: might be.. do you have  a preference for gnome or kde?  the latest kubuntu is pretty polished currently02:25
MrBobalright cause as you can imagine running at 100% brightness burns the battery like there is no tommorow02:25

jken146shadowwulf: correct?02:48
shadowwulfjken146,  yep and delete the rootfs.cupcake folder02:49
Dr_Willisthis is when i find using the 'mc' file manager comes in handy...02:49
jken146shadowwulf: Gotcha. We'll use cp (recursively) to copy the files, then rmdir to remove the leftover empty directory.       cp -r /media/flash/rootfs.cupcake/* /media/flash/ && rmdir /mediaflash/rootfs.cupcake02:50
shadowwulfjken146, cool thanks02:51

harisund1Any idea why when I connect to IRC and list all channels, it appears I am disconnected from the server immediately?02:52
jken146harisund1: Which server? freenode?02:53
harisund1yes Freenode02:53
jken146harisund1: There are a *lot* of channels on freenode02:53
harisund1I tried connecting using Pidgin, XChat and irssi .. it connects me, and nothing happens02:53
jken146harisund1: What do you mean nothing happens?02:54
Dr_Willisharisund1:  often getting a chnnel list can 'flood' you off the network - from what i recall in the past.02:54

Dr_Willisharisund1:  Normally people allready know what channels they want to join02:55
harisund1Anyway not a Ubuntu related issue, so dont bother. Here's my Ubuntu related issue. I have 2 250GB SATA hard disks, and I think they are configured for Raid0 stripe. When I install fedora 12 it recognizes it as a 500GB single harddisk, but Ubuntu sees 2 seperate hard dissk .. any clue? I think it's called FakeRaid but I could be wrong02:55

coleosisHow does one change the resolution of the x login screen?03:22
ardchoillehvgotcodes: well those two apps are completely unrelated to eachother03:22
dayajken146, chpasswd requires the file with list  such as  user1:passwd1user2:passwd2,03:22
hvgotcodesardchoille, right, but they both are measuring usage independently.  they both show the same 'freeze'.03:23
kebomixhow to remove officail ati driver 9.10 ?03:23

ardchoillehvgotcodes: I'm not familiar at all with 64bit03:26
hlxkk, newer to the whole nix thing, grep more or less just says "search for this phrase" right?03:26

Berzerkerjken146, how do I use sed if there's a / in the server I'm replaing03:29
jken146daya: for example, sudo echo joebloggs:p4s5w0rD | chpasswd03:30
Random832hlx; it's not so much a phrase as an exact string03:30
Random832(though you've also got all sorts of wildcard stuff to control it)03:30
Random832if you don't know about all that you should probably use fgrep03:30
ardchoilleBerzerker: sed 's|server/name|new/server/name|'  or  sed 's#server/name#new/server/name'03:30
jken146Berzerker: escape a forward slash like this: \/03:31

Berzerkerardchoille, sed didn't change the links, it outputted everything correctly in the terminal, but nothing in sources.list was changed...is there some sort of option I should be using, or a switch?03:34
ardchoilleBerzerker: That's why you need the "-i" to "make changes inline":  sed -i.backup 's/old text/new text/g' /etc/apt/sources.list03:35
Linkadminevery time i switch user on netbook-remix, gdm runs pm-suspend. Does anyone have any idea why?03:36

=== metaltothedeath is now known as ________________
Berzerkerardchoille, another quick q, how do I upgrade the kernel to .32?03:38
=== ________________ is now known as ___^___
ardchoilleBerzerker: updating the kernel requires:  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade03:38
ardchoilleBerzerker: That updates to the latest from the repos. Beyond that I can't help because I don't use apps outside the repos03:39
Berzerkerk, thanks03:39
Berzerkerdist-upgrade only gives me 31-1903:39
ardchoilleBerzerker: then you may have to compile your own kernel, but that is quite a big job03:40
jken146Berzerker: What do you need 32 for btw?03:40
BerzerkerI'm sure I'll find some .deb to install03:40
Berzerkerjken146, I hear it has a decent speed increases03:40
ardchoilleBerzerker: I'd be very weary of installing a kernel from a .deb that isn't in your repos03:41
ardchoilleBerzerker: And it's a bad idea to add mix repos, ie: Karmic/Lucid03:41
jken146Berzerker: I doubt it's worth the hassle03:41
Berzerkerdirectly from ubuntu..03:42
ardchoilleAh, might be worth a try then03:42
Berzerkerif anyone cares03:42
nomnexis X like the Windows kernel?03:42
jken146You could use apt pinning to get the newer kernel from lucid03:42
BerzerkerI'm not running lucid, and upgrade attempt made netbook launcher constantly crash03:42
ardchoillenomnex: x is a windowing system that gnome runs on top of03:42
jken146but there's no guarantee it wouldn't break things horribly03:42
ardchoillejken146: please don't recommend mixing releases like that (Karmic/Lucid), can cause lots of problems.03:43
jken146ardchoille: I'm not recommending it. It's probably a very bad idea for something like the kerne;03:44
nomnexardchoille, I have read on Wikipedia that x was also a server (e.g. Terminal Server Client)03:44
nomnexardchoille, so without X gnome does "not work"?03:44

Berzerkerardchoille, if I install this kernel version over it, will it recognize updates for it also?03:47
cyn23help me with my bootsplash resolution please03:48
jken146nomnex: Windows is monolithic, where GNU is layer-upon-layer. GNOME runs on top of X, which runs on init,... with ther kernel at the bottom (slightly simplified)03:48
ardchoilleBerzerker: the package manager is the thing responsible for updates, you installing a package manually may not get updates at all.03:48

DaemonFCmattgyver, Yes, use the PAE kernel03:50
Random832rainy-day; you can set the xterm font to real fonts with -fa instead of -fn03:50
ardchoilleRandom832: hey, that's the nicest xterm font I've ever seen03:50

mattgyverDaemonFC, thanks ill look into it :)03:50
Random832i never knew that before today03:51
ardchoilleRandom832: I disliked xterm because of the font until now03:51
DaemonFCmattgyver, I believe the PAE kernel can address up to 48 GB of RAM03:51
jken146nomnex: yes, KDE, GNOME< XFCE, etc. will all run on the same X server. And X can be accessed remotely too03:51
dayajken146, any idea to verify that the user password is right or wrong, I am trying to write a bash script to change FTP password via web03:52
DaemonFCmattgyver, Another thing you could do is use the 64-bit kernel on your 32-bit Ubuntu system03:52
mattgyverDaemonFC, okay.. any idea whats the best most stable method?03:52
rainy-dayRandom832: and -fs changes size! cool03:52
jken146daya: No, you can't find out what a password is03:52
nomnexjken146, I can use OpenSSH to rsync or access Dirs/files from the console, but can I use OpenSSH to access a remote machine?03:52
DaemonFCmattgyver, Use the X86-64 version of Ubuntu is the best thing to do03:52
Random832daya; you really need to interact with the 'passwd' command03:52
DaemonFCPAE is kind of hacky and may aggravate some 3rd party driver03:53
jken146nomnex: yes, SSH is used for securely logging in to a remote computer03:53
mattgyverDaemonFC, I would do that but ive just heard there are a lot of application compatibilty issues with the 64bit, and im not really ready to go that route yet03:53
DaemonFCit's also a bit slower than the native addressing in the 64-bit kernel03:53
dayajken146, yes I suppose that, but there is at least some way to do it, may be some perl or python mods03:53
nomnexjken146, thanks03:53
DaemonFCmattgyver, There are no issues on the X86-64 version03:53
jken146mattgyver: 64bit ubuntu is fine03:54
DaemonFCthere's 32-bit libraries that can be used for 32-bit compatibility03:54
dayaRandom832, any idea about it03:54
DaemonFCthey're all brought in as dependences if you isntall Wine :)03:54
mattgyverOkay, well then maybe ill dive into it, im about to reconfigure my system anyway in the next week or so cuz i got a new SSD to play with03:54
mkquistjken146: i agree been using it for quite some time no problems03:54
nomnexjken146, one more think, does the remote deskotp viewer (GUI) in Application allow SSH connection or only through the command line?03:55
nomnexjken146, sorry bad english...03:55
jken146daya: Passwords are encrypted and stored in /etc/shadow in such a way that you can generate the ecrypted string from the password (to authenticate) but not do the reverse03:55
Random832jken146; which would mean he has to run his php script as root03:55
JULinuxUserIf possible a question from a new julinux user, the program says its installed but on restart at the 2nd screen is says error no such partition <grub rescue>03:55
DaemonFCmattgyver, The only reason to stay with 32-bit x86 version of Ubuntu is if your CPU does not support X86-6403:55
jken146Random832: He would have to be root to use chpasswd03:56
mattgyverDaemonFC, then im a dummy cuz mine i deffinately a 64 bit :X03:56
jken146Random832: but I thought daya was writing a bash script anyway03:56
live_wireis there a way to reset my resolution at grub?03:56
Random832jken146; my suggestion was passwd, not chpasswd03:56
gmendozaOut of curiosity, has anyone heard of a quick fix for Flash video flickering?  Lots of conflicting ideas in searches so far.  I've noticed it with Intel and ATI chipsets, both in Firefox and Chrome, with compiz enabled and disabled.03:56
jazzJordan_U,  are you still about?03:57
ChogyDangmendoza: jaunty?03:57
nomnexmattgyver, not for me, the reason are the codecs on Medibuntu, 32 packages offer much more than 6403:57
dayaRandom832, jken146 I am only trying to write a CGI using bash to let my FTP users to change their password03:57
jken146Random832: passwd doesn't work; it's interactive03:57
DaemonFCmattgyver, If you asked me in 2005/2006, I would have been insistent on staying with 32-bit x86 because the 32-bit compatibility libraries weren't really all there yet, but there's no good reason to not use X86-64 now03:57
ChogyDangmendoza: er, yeah, the latest stable03:57
Random832jken146; you can redirect its stdin03:57
mattgyverDaemonFC, well ill deffinately give it a shot and see if it works out better for me, if it doesnt ill just roll back to 32bit03:58
gmendozaChogyDan: yeah, running Adobe Flash 10.0 r4203:58
DaemonFCpeople liked to FUD X86-64 for a long time because of those early compatibility issues03:58
ChogyDangmendoza: would you mind telling me some of the conflicting solutions?  I'm curious.  I'd be happy to give you my solutions03:58
mattgyverDaemonFC, that might be what i got traped in03:58
jken146nomnex: Um, I'm not sure about that app, I've not used it. I *think* it's a VNC viewer, which is a bit more than just X forwarding on ssh (but then I get out of my depth on how that works)03:58
DaemonFCmattgyver, Just bring in Wine and you'll have all the 32-bit compatibility environment you need because Wine depends on all of them03:58
Random832just (echo $oldpass; echo $newpass; echo $newpass) | passwd03:58
mattgyverDaemonFC, shall do :)03:58

shannon_hey how do i install gstreamer plugins for use with totem so i can watch dvd's03:59

blakkheimDrakon: you basically can't change the gdm theme in 9.1004:10
Berzerkerardchoille, is there a way to force the grub menu up?04:10
Drakonoh fair enough... so it's for older versions??... or it's difficult?04:10
Li_On_hello? Good evening everyone. This is acutally my first time in an IRC chat so I just picked this channel since I'm taking baby steps into the world of Ubuntu04:11
blakkheimDrakon: older04:11
jken146Li_On_: hello. How can we help?04:11
live_wireShould I re-install ubuntu, or grub2?04:12
hlxwhere does one go if they want to get on the path to eventually writing code for ubuntu? (im fluent on C++, python and java in windows, learning portability concepts.), and would like to get started on the patch to contribution04:12
songerhello, i can't find: flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound04:12
docoxxxnesito ayuda04:12
hlxon the path *04:13
jken146hlx: find a project you like and see what needs doing. Look on launchpad and sourceforge04:13
hlxalright, is there some guided tour for launchpad? seems quite convoluted04:13
Li_On_So, first thing's first...I wiped and old XP machine and made a clean install of Ubuntu...plugged in the ethernet cable...firefox launched immediately(wow!)...what do i need to know as windows user to better appreciate my transition...? security? alternative software?...any tips...04:13
Drakoni'm also looking to find out how to set up my xbox360 to Linux... can anyone point me in the right direction?04:14
hlxDrakon: eh?04:14
DasEiLi_On_: karmic ?04:14
Alphexcan anyone point me to a bash scripting channel?04:14
jken146songer: Li_On_: Security -- you don't need to do anything :)  As for the rest, just start using it, and see how you go. You'll find software in the Software Center (in the Applications menu)04:15
ChogyDanhlx: I did the packaging upgrade guide, and that has got me started04:15
shannon_got it! Thanks again, DaemonFC04:15
ChogyDanhlx: now I can open up a package, apply some source code edits, and pack it back up again04:15
hlxChogyDan: Will look into that then, thanks04:15
Li_On_i believe so...i can't say im too familiar with the distro names...04:15
DasEi!version | Li_On_04:15

Drakonwell i had it set up so i could watch movies from my computer through my xbox onto my big screen tv via ethernet connection... is there a way that anyone knows that i could do that?04:16
hlxlike via Tversity? or windows media centre connector04:16
hlxI would think you could do it with SAMBA04:16
DasEi Li_On_ : for karmic : http://tiny.cc/kDdv004:16
Drakonumm it just sorta connected to be honest... and i could look through my computers video files04:16
Drakonit was on xp04:17
jken146Drakon: It sounds like a job for Samba04:17
jken146!samba | Drakon04:17
ubottuDrakon: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/9.10/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.04:17

Li_On_yes, it is Karmic after all...(im learning here...)04:18
jken146songer: Audio in linux can be a pain. Sometimes I find kicking the sound preferences options GUI thing helps (switching between the 'hardware' options)04:19
songerjken146, that's why i'm lookiong for flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound04:19
Li_On_i find installing stuff is lot easier too with the Synaptic Manager04:19
Li_On_you just take what you need and boom, done.04:19
illyumeHey, I'm looking for a program that will allow me to play mp3 files at reduced speeds (such as 1/2x or 1/4x) to help me learn some pieces by ear. Are there any packages in Ubuntu's repository that will do this, or will allow me to edit a .mp3 file to half speed?04:19
DasEiLi_On_: depends on, cmd-line is much faster, if you answer to someone, put their nick in what you say so there your message gets highlighted04:20

jken146juan__: Why are you trying to join REVU?05:04
tonyyarussojuan__: REVU is for reviewing source packages, nothing else.05:04
jken146juan__: You have a package thet contains a font. What are you trying to do with it?05:04
juan__jken146: to make my packaging work avaliable to everyone, to fix "need-packaging bugs"05:04

juan__tonyyarusso: how you get the build sources of .TTF files?05:05
rumpsymoin moin05:06
tonyyarussojuan__: That hardly even makes sense at all.  You said you *already* had a package, did you not?05:06

tonyyarussojuan__: okay, how did you get the TTF file "inside" the .deb file?05:08
juan__yes, i want to fix "need-packaging" bugs05:09

DasEidatz: http://pastebin.com/m17b3f49005:09
bazhangBy_Your_Command, stay on topic and no more nonsense factoids05:10
juan__fonts,it only ask for ubuntu-standad meta-package, and a post-install script that refresh font cache05:10
tonyyarussojuan__: what template, and "making" how?05:10
juan__template are directory and files edited manually05:12
juan__since a .deb its just a compressed file05:12
tonyyarussojuan__: um, that's not how building a deb works...05:12
hlxi think he wants to reverse engineer one, or extract it05:12

ed10Hi I need help.I have my p.c partitioned (xp & ubuntu)I now cant get my windows to boot up.I would like to get access to my programmes on windows and mount them in ubuntu.I can see the programmes sitting there when I look in the hard drive when running ubuntu,but how do I mount them in ubuntu?I need outlook express for example to get email files and contacts etc.Thanks in advance.06:16
rickbeeDasEi: yes, was trying to connect to irc on the other computer to paste. Anyways, I got "recovering journal", "Clearing orphane inode..." and "cleann..."06:16
rickbeeDasEi: Sounds reassuring06:16
DasEirickbee: so it finished without errors ?06:17
rickbeeDasEi: I think so. Was that it?06:17
Jordan_Ujazz, What do you mean?06:17
DasEirickbee: unless you want to re-write initramfs, can give it a try, else got to boot in live again06:18
darolued10: You can run them that way, Ubuntu is not Windows, some programs can be run with Wine (a windows emulator); you can try restoring Windows and then reinstalling GRUB to get both systems functional.06:18
jazzJordan_U,  you wrote up top same question to u,06:18
Jordan_Ujazz, You asked two hours ago if I was still around06:18

knuckhow do i change my root pw?06:30
DasEiknuck: sudo passwd root06:31
rumpsyknuck: you should not do that06:31
DasEiknuck: but be aware of /etc/sudoers in look of sudo06:31
rumpsyknuck: supplying a root password, is like a big hole in your computer for rats06:32
rwwDasEi: The supported way to edit sudo configuration is "visudo", not editing /etc/sudoers directly.06:32
knuckthere isn't any way to just change it in some system settings or something?06:32
septim_rumpsy: im going off, thanks anyway man again06:32
daroluknuck: is safer to use sudo, if you need to be root I'd recomend to do $sudo su06:33
rumpsyseptim_: ) , welcome06:33
DasEirww: yess.. :)06:33
rww!root | knuck06:33
ubottuknuck: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo06:33
knucknah, i know my password06:33
knucki just want to change it06:33
rumpsyAT first root is not a user06:34
blockyanyone know of a multitrack mixing program?06:34
rwwrumpsy: yes it is, actually. It's just disabled by default on Ubuntu.06:34
ardchoilleknuck: Changing or enabling the root accountis not supported and makes your system much less secure06:34
knuckwell damn. oh well. is there any way to pw lock specific folders?06:34
ardchoilleyou can't brute force a locked root account and you can't brute force a user account without the username and password06:34
rumpsyrww: That is for safety, and security purpose06:34
aiwahey i got a program that won't quit. how do i force a program to quit?06:34
royceremeryou just drop to root shell in recovery mode and $pwchange06:35
DaZaiwa: killall -9 name06:35
DasEiaiwa: sudo killall -9 firefox ,f.e.06:35
Maximaclose is by force06:35
tonyyarussoknuck: That's what standard file permissions are for.06:35
daroluknuck: root is like god on your pc, you can use it, but just as you can create it you can destroy it, be aware of that; you can do better than pwd protect folders, assign them permissions try $man chmod06:35
jazzwhat is a real good program to record desktop activities?06:35
rumpsyaiwa: check that processes name in system monitor06:35
DaZaiwa: or use xkill, kde has it under ctrl+alt+esc shortcut06:35
rwwubottu: screencast | jazz06:35

DaZaiwa: probably because you're not using kde right now.06:36
git__why does ubuntu insist on using runlevel 2 for GUI?06:37
knuckok, i own this computer. i set up a basic root pw and i'm worried anybody could guess it if they knew me. it was a quick fix after a reformat, and i want to make it something a little more complicated06:37
DaZi'm just saying gnome should have shortcut as well06:37
tonyyarussogit__: That's inherited from the Debian upstream, as has been standard there for eons.06:37
Maximahow can i load SSA subtitle for mplayer??06:37
daroluknuck: $sudo passwd root06:37
DasEigit__: what's the matter with it ?06:38
rumpsyknuck: instead applying passward to root, apply it for grub.. that may safe06:38
tonyyarussodarolu: Don't tell people how to do that - if they were informed enough to understand the risks, they'd know how to do it already.06:38
Maximait gives me "seek failed"06:38
ardchoilleknuck: The point is, with a locked root account you cannot guess the password, the account is locked and for good reason06:38
DasEiknuck: or use encryption like pgp or truecrypt for that06:39
git__the main problem starting GUI at runlevel 2 is because of video driver06:39

knuckbut i know the pw. but i'll encrypt the folder after changing my root with sudo06:39
ardchoilleknuck: I've beenusing Ubuntu for 4 years and have never needed to enable the root account, it's just not necessary06:39
git__sometimes video driver doesn't work for X as expected06:39

viejotrenhi folks, i got 2 questions, #1 what is the best filesystem to encrypt partition?06:40
almark1could someone pls look at my paste because I can't use apt-cdrom add06:40
mneptokRonald: is that a script you are running? if so, please disable it when in Ubuntu channels. thanks.06:40
daroluviejotren: I personally prefer xfs06:40
viejotrenwhy? darolu06:41
daroluviejotren: because it is 64-bit06:41
mneptokdarolu: XFS is not suitable for a /boot addressed by GRUB06:41
DasEiviejotren: best is always a call in the wilde , ext4 supports cryption well06:41
rumpsyalmark1: okay06:41
SwedeMikeVlet: personally I do md->luks(cryptsetup)->lvm->xfs for main partitions.06:41
mneptokdarolu: so are ext filesystems06:41
rumpsyalmark1: try this command, apt-cdrom add06:41
almark1rumpsy: thanks :)06:41
viejotrenis xfs enough stable?06:42
almark1rumpsy: it doesn't work still06:42
SwedeMikeviejotren: yes, it's been around since 200006:42
DaZit is.06:42
mneptokviejotren: do not use XFS for /boot06:42
DaZmneptok: because? :f06:42
rumpsyalmark1: first eject the cd out06:42
SwedeMikeyou can't encrypt /boot anyway, just run ext3 on it and be fine.06:42
darolumneptok: why ext or xfs are not suitable?06:42
viejotrenwhat should i use mneptok?06:42
mneptokDaZ: because GRUB has long-standing issues properly addressing XFS partitions06:42
almark1rumpsy: ok its done06:42
DaZit works fine iirc.06:43
rumpsyalmark1: And insert it again, use that command, sudo apt-cdrom add06:43
DasEiDaZ: grub is  using uuids06:43

ubottuHi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!06:43
viejotrenso, is a good practice to encrpyt just /home?06:43

e3a15HI i want to configure Asterisk Server on Ubuntu 9.1006:43
WAawaawEEhow do i add my bottom tool bar back - if i goto add to panel i don't see it06:43
almark1rumpsy: ok I'm about to use it again and the DVD is on top of the two, I have two drives DVD and CD and its mounted auto just a moment06:44
WAawaawEEi see one called window list... but i can only add that to the top toolbar06:44
SwedeMikeviejotren: then I'd just encrypt /home if I were you, that's what I'm doing on my laptop.06:44
mneptokDaZ: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=41562306:44
viejotrenok swedemike, what kind of filesystem should i use?06:44
Jordan_Umneptok, Source on the xfs problems? Do they effect grub2?06:44
almark1rumpsy: the same happened didn't work http://paste.ubuntu.com/372995/06:44
SwedeMikeviejotren: I use xfs on my laptop for /home. Only major drawback with xfs that I know is that it can't be shrunk, only enlarged.06:45
e3a15anyone there06:45
daroluviejotren: xfs was introduced in 1994 I'd say it is quite stable.06:45
mneptokJordan_U: GRUB2 advertises better XFS support, but i still wouldn't trust /boot to XFS. just as i would not trust /boot to any encrypted filesystem.06:45
e3a15please tell me i want to configure asterisk server on ubuntu 9.1006:45
SwedeMikee3a15: listen, read the guidelines that was linked to you, then do what it says, and you'll increase your chances of getting an answer.06:45

rumpsyalmark1: or mount the cdrom manually, to a particular location, and try apt-cdrom -d06:46
e3a15Swedemike can u send me links again06:46
almark1rumpsy: yes I have done that as well I will do that now06:46
SwedeMikee3a15: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . You need to learn how to state a question specifically, saying "I need help to configure asterisk" doesn't say anything.06:46
viejotrenok, thanks a lot guys, ques #2: is about ubuntustudio -sorry the official channel never respond-06:47

jazziflema,  i did, i needed help with the switcher but got a link, my 2nd question was on the video i seen about linux in general07:06
LanlostI think it was because I saw the .desktop file that was auto created. It made me unlearn everything I had learned for a few minutes and made me think that I couldn't do a link anywhere to a program except on my desktop heh07:06
almark1rumpsy: let me get you paste first :)07:06

Speedy2Hey all.  If you compile your own kernel, if you re-install the nvidia drivers with apt, does it still generate the right files?08:06
iflemajazz oooo08:07
jazziflema,  i guess the project got canned08:07
seamarshallDasEi: I am using ubuntu08:07
McNuggetsjazz: what project?08:07
jazzhe turns the page over and writes looking glass, is the project08:07
DasEiSpeedy2: y08:07
jazzMcNuggets,  looking glass08:07
Speedy2DasEi: If you recompile the kernel yourself, will apt detet that an re-generate the nvidia stuff?08:08
DasEiSpeedy2: but if you do your own, needed modules have to be there08:08
iflemajazz oooh..... pez08:08
McNuggetsjazz: i'm, using it right now in compiz. it's in your settings manager08:08
DasEiSpeedy2: yes, will08:08

jazzMcNuggets,  really? what i was looking for was the part around 2:5908:09
Speedy2DasEi: I didn't recompile the kernel yet, I'm using the Kubuntu one, but this is why I want to re-compile.08:09
DasEiSpeedy2:  (the ..08:09
McNuggetsjazz: thats a old plugin from Beryl that was now integrated with compiz08:09
DasEiSpeedy2: any particular reason ?08:10
jazzMcNuggets,  how do i set it up? or what plugins?08:10
Speedy2DasEi: I probably haven't been very clear.  I am using a Kubuntu stock kernel, but I am getting oopses .  I think it's because the kernel wants to use the older "pata_xxx" drives (ITE & Marvell in my case).  But I have no recourse since they are not loaded as modules.08:11
jazzMcNuggets,  that was one of the first videos i seen before i switch to linux08:11
Speedy2DasEi: The kernel should be setup to use the newer "sata_xxx" modules for the same devices.08:11
DasEiSpeedy2: ic, I haven't followed latest kernel news, else just got to make sure the desired are on your sys, blacklist the wrong ones and load them at bootup08:12
McNuggetsjazz: :) I would suggest you go with the simple compiz settings manager like I did at first till you find your way around. other than that there is some reading to do and messing around08:12
Speedy2DasEi: It's not loading a module for these devices, but they are in fact compiled into the kernel.08:13
DasEiSpeedy2: what does syslog say about the drives ?08:13
jazzMcNuggets,  i do use compiz but not all like the show off videos on youtube.  it was fun 3 months ago though when i got ubuntu08:14
DasEiSpeedy2: no, but have some experience, please stay here, so I can follow other posts08:15

woodyjlwis there going to be a new ATI driver for ubuntu that is wrote by a linux user?    not from ati08:17

DasEi!kernel | jameschu08:17
ubottujameschu: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - See also: /msg ubottu stages08:17
Speedy2jameschu: I've only done it once on Ubuntu, following the guides DasEi just linked you to08:18
Speedy2DasEi: I have done it before, but I never had any proprietary drivers to worry about.08:18
Speedy2DasEi: Plus, Kubuntu by default starts up KDM, and doesn't log you into a console.  I noticed if my X isn't starting up, I don't get virtual logins, so I'm just worried if something gets screwed up, I'm "locked out"08:19
DasEiSpeedy2: you will need support for your pcie-bus, rest apt should resolve, x is another question08:19

Jordan_USpeedy2, You can always choose an old kernel or recovery mode from the grub menu08:20
=== mdo_mdo30 is now known as enie
al_why does 'ls -d' not list dirs? it doesnt list anyting for me?08:20
Speedy2Jordan_U: Yeah, recover mode still isn't giving me a console login  (oddly)08:20
DasEiSpeedy2: it does, root or netroot08:21
Speedy2DasEi: It might be because I changed some of the start-up services, dunno.08:21
darolual_:$man ls08:21
DasEiSpeedy2: also ctrl-alt F1 to F6 drops you to login prompt08:22
al_darolu: I did, and my interpretation of the -d flag is to list dirs???08:22
seamarshallDoes anyone know how to use iptables with a ettercap bridged connection (not my computer)08:22
Speedy2DasEi: Yeah, what I'm saying is that doesn't work right now.  I don't see any getty running in the process list either.08:22
al_I want to list all dirs on a disk, by reverse date order, and I cant even get to the first bllody step, list dirs....grrrr08:23
DasEial_: ls -R for the whole08:23
al_DasEi: yeah I got that much. but need dirs only, with newest at bottom of list08:24
DasEiSpeedy2: what happens if you boot ?08:24
Speedy2DasEi: Boots normally, dumps me into KDE (Kubuntu).  If I choose recovery mode, it just hangs after starting up one of the services.  control-alt-delete reboots it.  (this is stock kernel, I haven't changed anything there).08:24
DasEiSpeedy2: strange, then init 1  or the rec-kernel is broken, you can hit ctrl-alt F1 from kubu to get out x08:26
DasEial_: man ls, option t sorts by date08:26
al_DasEi: ok. But I still cant list dirs with ls -d? what am i missing? does the -d option do something differnet?08:27

jacob__And now instead of the little drop down menu, I see the icon of the program08:27
jacob__I don't want the icon, just the little menu.. like the dot, or tiny arrow08:28
DasEial_: yes, to list dirs got to modify output of ls -R08:29

KE1HAal_: just type man ls .. will give you all the options.08:31

Speedy2DasEi: Well, like I said, I changed some of the start-up scripts to remove unnessary things (i.e. "modem-manager").  It's possible something got fubared, so I wanted to find out the easiest way to return all the start-up scripts to default08:36

satishhow to get /dev/spidev automatically ?09:28
SwedeMikejken146: so if new options become available in config files etc, new major revision, I won't have to use dist-upgrade if the packages doesn't add new dependencies?09:29
christophebpff whatever, I guess I'll just keep on being productive instead of seeking in a bunch of troubles with phc09:29
indusdoes all the software in proposed repo make it to main ? or stable rather09:29
collabrachristopheb: :)09:30
christophebthanks for the help collabra, but I always have kernel and compiling problems, and I just hate it09:30
jken146SwedeMike: dist-upgrade can handle changing dependencies. upgrade doesn't do this; it just doesn't upgrade packages where this would require others to be removed09:30
KE1HAwhat version of gcc are you using, do a gcc -v09:30
satishKE1HA : hi09:31
KE1HAIt sounds more like a toolchaing problem than a package problem to me.09:31
SwedeMikejken146: yeah, that I do understand. I was under the impression that it was needed for config changes as well09:31
collabrachristopheb: that's why i use distro's and rarely compile anything but a kernel or minor program09:31
Gryphon4iceroot, Myrtti: This is my computer annoying me!Ahhhhh E: Invalid operation ubuntu-restricted-extras What do i do now?09:31
jken146SwedeMike: As for new features and bugfixes, Ubuntu does not do feature updates, only security updates and bug fixes. Each new release has the new features09:31
christophebindeed collabra, but sometimes you just have to. I just want the same battery life as on windows (twice as much as ubuntu), so I have to install phc, but I need another kernel for it and so on...09:32
KE1HAmake nornally fires off a bunch of errors at you if there's something wrong with the config,  but to have it do nothing doesn't nto sound right.09:32
jken146SwedeMike: (backports is the slight exception to this)09:32
MyrttiGryphon4: sudo apt-get -d install ubuntu-restricted-extras, sorry09:32
exshi, i deinstalled gnome-desktop and now i have no sound in totem. can someone says how to restore the sound?09:32

jken146Myrtti, Gryphon4: apt-get -d means 'download only; don't install'09:33
Myrttijken146: yes?09:33
Myrttijken146: that's what he's been asking about for past two days, how to download but not to install09:33

ct529I have difficulties on making flash player work on *ubuntu 910 at 64bit .... in Firefox cannot use the BBC iplayer .... which I can easily do on 32 bit10:11
Myrttiintgr: what do you mean?10:11
jken146ct529: use get_iplayer10:12
einstein1969capron, only grub2 support xnu kernel and new GPT format, but there is few documents... very little documentation and poor knowledge. grub1 is not the solution...10:12
jken146ct529: That is, if it's just an issue with iplayer. Does flash work in general (youtube, etc)?10:12
intgrjken146: Ah ok, thanks10:13
ct529jken146: it works on youtube, but I have random problems with other websites .... for example bbc website .... where it does not play at all10:13
=== xiong_ is now known as xiong
ct529jken146: bbc iplayer desktop works well .... I have installed it from bbc website ....10:14
thechefSlart: Hmm well just that a VM or alternate boot is too much inconvenience overhead, so that just scanning the documents to png is the better trade off.10:14
ct529jken146: but the videos on the bbc.co.uk/iplayer wbsite do not work at all in flash10:14
=== andatche_ is now known as andatche
jken146ct529: ok. It might help to remove and reinstall the flash plugin. sudo apt-get purge flashplugin* && sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer   (close firefox first)10:14
ct529jken146: already done several times10:15
KE1HAwhich add-on did you install ? Ive seen a bug report on ADFlash, but can't find it at the moment, try the swf version.10:15
Slartthechef: have you tried running the pngs through tesseract or ocropus?10:15
ct529the plugin from multiverse10:16
jken146ct529: hm, ok. In that case, I don't know what would do the trick. I use get_iplayer (a command line program) that downloads iplayer content DRM free.10:17
ct529jken146: does it allow you to search?10:17
jken146ct529: yes.10:17
ct529jken146: and doe sit allow to stream as well?10:17
infidcan you cp files to a remote location like you can with scp?10:17
caproneinstein1969,  That is true hope some can help you and fix that problem.  I googel you are not alone to have that error.10:17
jken146ct529: yep. You can stream it to any player10:17
KE1HAi'd go with jken146 suggestion then of that fails, bug report it and try a different plug-in10:17
ct529jken146: wow .... how?10:18
jken146ct529: It can stream to stdout, so you can do anything you like with it10:18
thechefSlart, actually the ocr feature is not that important. Just thought that if i can just push one button and it scans 30 pages, doing OCR for searching the documents later, it would be nice.10:18
KE1HAgo to FF add-on's10:18
ct529jken146: yes, you just pipe it10:18

Gryphon4Ah indus: cheak your pm10:27
jken146hazeyez: Yes, you must install ubuntu to a partition (this could be a virtual partition that your VM deals with)10:27
Slarthazeyez: well.. either you install it (and be able to install software and such and make it stick) or you run from the live cd and get everything reset every time you reboot10:27

Rishab_R u der ??10:28
hazeyezso installing it will not cancel out my windows vista, right? it will basically just run only thru virtualbox?10:28
indusloquitus, so it says, you need to rip and put on hard disk then play it i think10:28
indusloquitus, aah crappy drm methods10:28
Slarthazeyez: if you install it in virtualbox, then yes10:28
loquitusindus: that's insane... I have to copy the whole damn movie to my hard drive?10:28
oxymoronhazeyez: If you install it INSIDE Virtualbox Vista wil reamin intact yes10:29
indusloquitus, just download a torrent of the movie and play it, works great10:29
indusloquitus, since you own the original copy, its legal i believe10:29
bazhangindus, dont suggest piracy here10:29
hazeyezok... and as far as irssi goes.. im used to mIRC,.. how do i switch from one channel to another and changebackground colors, and pm people? etc10:29

r3104dI can't see or be seen (MY other windows boxes)on my wireless network.11:53
icerootr3104d: you can see them by "ping"?11:53
KE1HAyou need to log into your router to see them.11:53
KE1HAunless your router is a DHCP server like we were just talkign about.11:53
KE1HAyes you should be able to ping them though.11:54
r3104dNo. Can't even tell there's another system there.11:54
KE1HAthat's a good thing, that's how its supposed to be.11:54
r3104dUnless you're wanting to xfer files and what not.11:55
KE1HAon your WinDoze box you'd need to share the folders, or use Samba on the Linux bos to share their folders.11:55
joebodor3104d, do u have a firewall on ur windows box ?11:55
r3104dSo that's what Samba's for?11:55

hazeyezi am trying to install guest addons on virtualbox... it comes up with this error11:56
hazeyezi got to devices>install guest addons.. it says error: unable to mount cd image c:progra~1\sun\virtua~1\vboxguestadditions.iso... would you like to force mounting? | could not mount the media c:progra~1\sun\virtua~1\vboxguestadditions.iso  (VERR_PDM_MEDIA_LOCKED) i click <force unmount> and nothing happens| could not mount the media11:56
hazeyezwhat can i do?11:56
KE1HAOh man, it does allot, but basically, file and print server sharing.11:56
KE1HAfor a windows box to see Linux folders, you create a Samba shared folder, and on windows, you simply share the folder though with windows sharing utility.11:57
etfbThe suspend/resume feature on my laptop has stopped working.  Can someone point me to an article or tutorial on how to troubleshoot this?  It seems to have happened with the latest kernel upgrade, but booting with an older kernel doesn't help.11:58
KE1HAhazeyez, you probably need to create the mount point first.11:58
hazeyezcan you please explaint hat to me11:59
KE1HAmake a dir: mkdir /dev/mnt then mount it mount /dev/cdrom -t iso9660 /mnt/cdrom12:00
hazeyezok then go to install guest addons?12:01
hyperstreammobius2, hello12:01
KE1HAyeah, they will probably already be there as it's copying those to /tmp or something like that.12:01
hazeyezok ill try it, standby12:01
KE1HAI don't do allot of of Linux VM, mostly use VMPlayer on WinDoze box's but it's the same principal.12:02
mobius2I am deeply entrenched in  an attempt to make a win32 swf decompiler run  in Crossover. I am afraid I've hit the end of the line. I am out of ideas12:02
KE1HAwhat the virtual application your using ?12:03

mobius2zillion hands go up12:05
KE1HAmkdir ~/name of directory12:05
secretI want to create a directory called spanish 312:05
wejicksecret, open your nautilus12:05
KE1HAr3104d .. you still there, I just saw your PM.12:05
dreginmy grub binary, menu.lst and stage1 have disappeared. Was there a grub update released recently??12:05
wejicksecret, mkdir spanish\ 312:06
wejicksecret, '\' is escape carachter12:06
secretwejick is that something I need to put in the terminal ?12:06
ct529jken146: get_iplayer is really good .... it is working well!12:07
KE1HAGrub2 doesnt' use menu.1st anymore its .cfg I think now.12:07
wejickya, if you need gui you can use your nautilus12:07
mobius2secret,  I would suggest using the graphical interface called Nautilus to make file system changes until you are more adept with the terminal.  If you need root access for some reason ,  you can start Nautilus as root with  limited  powers by typing  sudo nautilus12:07
ct529jken146: do you know whether there is anything of that sort for other services, like arte or lovefilm?12:07
hazeyezke1ha: cannot make directory /dev/mnt12:07
secretok so I have opened nautilus.....12:08
wejickany one can you try this? http://sisrestore.googlecode.com/files/Sisrestore%200.9.4.tar.bz212:08
mobius2secret, where would you like the  new directory to be located in your file system?12:08
secretin the home directory12:09
KE1HAOh, right, do you have a cdrom already on the machine ?  if so just mount /dev/cdrom12:09
KE1HAthen cd cdrom12:09
mobius2secret,  you should see the current root directory in your nautilus window,  simply click the up arrow until you  are able to find HOME then  open the HOME directory and you  should  be able to find your way  throughout your own  username filesystem from there12:09
KE1HAalso, what virtual application are you using ?12:10
mobius2secret,  just remember unless you typed sudo  you will already  be in your  username12:10
hazeyezke1ha: /dev/sr0 already mounted12:10
KE1HAthen all you need to do is cd cdrom12:10
loquitusI just restarted my system and got a kernel panic not syncing vfs unable to mount root fs... but when I went and chose an older kernel from grub, it booted fine... what gives?12:11
KE1HAthen do an ls to see if the add-ons are there.12:11
secretok so I have gone to places then the home folder, where do I need to go from there, I am a complete and utter novice with ubuntu unfortunately, sorry12:11
wejickmobius2, secret use menu [places]->[home]12:11
loquitusactually, the other difference is when it worked, I had booted from the ubuntu cd and said to boot off the first hard disk... so perhaps that was the difference12:11
mobius2do you  see a directory  with your normal level username?12:11
mobius2if not then  just type the address in the  location bar12:12
hazeyezke1ha: bash: cd: cdrom: no such file or directory12:12
KE1HAhazeyez, i need to know what applicaiton your virtual software is, I cna help you netter that way12:12

indusxguru, yes, i think you mute the system before shutting down, and it remembers the setting12:20
KE1HAwhen you installed debmail, it added that to your profile. or if the system had it installed by default, look at ./etc/bashrc and your'll see it there, if so all new users added will get it in their profile.12:20
abhijitassume that i want to sovle some bug then whts the procedure?12:20
indusxguru, do one thing, shutdown while making sure sound is full, then reboot and see12:20

indusGangrel, i think you mounted too many partitions on diff points12:30
Gangrelindus today i used mountmanager to mount them so i get fstab automatically filled12:30
jken146ct529: I *think* there's an option that makes it spit out all the info it has on a programme, something like --streaminfo12:31
Gangrelindus the thing is that i cannot get the mounts to be read and write12:31
asdffI am running Karmic and have a strange error. Whenever I use backspace to go back a file in Thunar it makes a heinous beeping sound.

KE1HAyou can rsync byt time stamp or content. the time value is a threshold before considering the file needs to be changed / updated.13:54
KE1HAooops sri abt that.13:55
axzIts bugging me wtf this means SCPlugin-Ifupdown: device added (path: /sys/devices/virtual/net/ppp0, iface: ppp0): no ifupdown configuration found.13:55
KE1HAkubanc, so your not making it though the kernel boot process at all then?13:55

Spanglish_7776great hazeyes13:57
kubancKE1HA, when i confirm "try xubuntu without installing to computer", there is a delay, and then i press ESC and e, but this only gives me so little information, then it goes back onto the quiet splash mode. With your question  so your not making it though the kernel boot process at all then?, What are your trying to say?13:57
Spanglish_7776I forgot your name when I got home. I was like, what was their name again..13:57

obiwan_please could anybody explain me this about resolution time at fat32? http://pastebin.com/f56ed30e914:00
obiwan_it's just 4 lineas but i don't understand14:00
axzSpanglish_7776, http://pastebin.com/d637233df14:01
crugelantjie I was told that there was some issues with the Nvidia 750 chipsets14:01
axzSpanglish_7776, i tried the url you gave me..14:01
sipiorobiwan_: rsync treats two timestamps as being "simultaneous" if they differ by less than modify-window. So "13:45:27" and "13:45:28" would be considered the same by rsync if the window was at least one second.14:03
axzSpanglish_7776, i get this error at end nm-pptp-service-18621 fatal[open_callmgr:pptp.c:479]: Call manager exited with error 25614:03
khem_can anybody give me advice on how i can map ctrl (25) + 3B to left tag and ctrl (25) + 3C to right tag aswell as ctrl (25) + 33 to pipe with  xmodmap?14:04
* cmege is away: Occupé14:04
obiwan_yeah sipior but why would fat32 have a different time than ext3? that's explained there , it's got something to do with resolving times, but i don't get it14:05
Pici!away > cmege14:05
ubottucmege, please see my private message14:05
sipiorobiwan_: it is the way it is because that's how fat32 was designed. clocks always have an error, and fat32 simply asserts that the timestamps are accurate to within two seconds.14:07
Spanglish_7776axz, brb14:08
obiwan_sipior: i don't understand that14:08
sipiorobiwan_: well, which part?14:08
obiwan_sipior: what's about fat32 asserts that timestamps are accurate to withing two seconds?14:08
ubuntuhi there, i downloaded xubuntu to install to my system, half way though install it failed, after formating my harddrive,   it loads up live to test the os out,14:08
obiwan_sipior: does it mean that whenever a fat32 fs changes a modifiaction time it adds 2 seconds?14:09
ubuntubut i cant even install it in the live os with out it having error due to faulty disk14:09
ubuntunot sure what to do from here, im pretty stuck14:09
ubuntui only now have a live os.14:09
Myrttiubuntu: ubuntu systems are fairly good in detecting faulty disks in comparison to, say, xp. could it be that you indeed have a faulty disk?14:09
otakobiwan:no it remembers to the nearest 2 seconds14:10
kubancKE1HA, it stops saying IO APIC resources could not be allocated. and the next line is loading, please wait...14:10
DrMrHorsekarmic tells me my disk is broken as well, but lucid does not14:11
ubuntuMyrtti,  possibaly, but i now need to try get some kind of installation running with out the cd' like some kinda online installation? or some how download image to my harddrive then run it like a deamon tools?14:11
ubuntuis any of that possible14:11
DrMrHorseso being that little else works for me on karmic, im not paying attention to the warning14:11
ubuntusince the cd is installable from in the os.14:11
kubancKE1HA, now it says out of memory, so it looks like i need to put more RAM into the motherboard14:11
Piciraullll: Please stop that.14:12
sipiorobiwan_: no, it means that the timestamp is within two seconds of the actual modification time.14:12
obiwan_otak: i still don't get it :(14:12
KE1HAkubanc, ok, with the same process disable ( remove ) APIC as well as the nosplash and quiet.14:12
obiwan_otak: what do you mean with it remembers to the nearsetd 2 secs14:12
huguito99del eqipo14:12
sipiorobiwan_: in other words, the times shown are reliable to within 2 seconds.14:12
huguito99alguien es español¿?14:13
Pici!es | huguito9914:13
ubottuhuguito99: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.14:13
KE1HAkubanc, there's another guy that just posted Issues on Kub as well, there may be a script issue.14:13
obiwan_sipior: :? :(( i still don't understand. taht means that it may add up to 2 seconds to the real timestamp ?14:13
obiwan_ok sipior that's what my last message says right?14:13
sipiorobiwan_: or be 2 seconds behind, yes.14:13
obiwan_ok right14:13
bullgard~/.bashrc includes a line: "export DEBEMAIL='foo@bar'." What program wrote this line into this file?14:14
KE1HAkubanc, do you have a standard Ubuntu ISO you could try so we can eliminate the Xububtu as a possible cause?14:14
obiwan_sipior: and why man rsync says setting a --modify-window=1  sec solves this? it's supposed to be 2 seconds, if they differ 1 seconds they are still different by 1 sec14:14
ubuntui have the image extracted on a pen drive but its not bootable, is there a way to start the installation in the live system via the pen?14:14
obiwan_sipior: or does ext* filesystems have at least 1 sec difference timestamp?14:15
kubancKE1HA, does it matter which version?14:15
Dr_Willisubuntu:  clarify wht you did exactly to get the stuff on the pen14:15
KE1HANo, jsut want to verify it's not a HW issue.,14:15
ubuntudownloaded the iso, then in some extracting software i told it to extract the files to the pen drive14:16
Dr_Willisubuntu:  what extracting software?14:16
otakubuntu:AFAIK the pen is written to during use so it can only be used once.14:16
Dr_Willisubuntu:  you dont just copy files from an iso file to the pendrive and expect it to work. Use a tool like Unetbootin14:16
ubuntuouch, i screwed that up then14:17
Kerioi have some issues with my custom kernel on 9.1014:17

t3hp00kywhats a good terminal browser?14:25
obiwan_sipior: i understood all but i still got one question14:25
kubancKE1HA, i already put 128 MB of ram into the working module, so lets see what is next14:25
kali1scunizi: i do not find open chrome14:25
KE1HAkubanc, you could try moving the DIMMS to diffrent slots, or reseating the modules, sometimes the channels or module seats aren't the best.14:26
nibbler>.( they need me to have regged ick :(14:26
obiwan_sipior: if differing time may be up to 2 seconds, why does man rsync recommend to set modify timestamp granularity to 1 sec? it should be 2 to ensure14:26
t3hp00kyI'm kind of stuck in my tty :o14:26
KE1HAkubanc, also check the MB manual to see how it says to configure the RAM on a per slot basis.14:26
kali1scunizi: yes these are installed14:26

menguwhen i copy paste a theme to /usr/share/themes why it won't show up in the appearance?14:27
scunizikali1: read the link14:27
sipiorobiwan_: perhaps they define resolution so that a two second error means "1 second in either direction". either convention is reasonable, i suppose.14:27

kubancKE1HA, the MB is very old, it only has 2 slots, so there is nothing to configure here. BUT i can tell you, that it was the problem in RAM. i put it 128 MB and now IT IS WORKING. so KE1HA thank you. i will try to install XUBUNTU, if i will be able to :D14:29
KE1HAkubanc, just checked the Xubuntu site, you need 192MB of RAM.14:30
