dabaRSweat: I mean, it is somewhat almost unlikely that you will be able to fix what the installer could not configure, IMHO00:19

psycho_oreosloganhoup, blacklisting keeps systems sane imo, without blacklist, some old and potentially problematic if not duplicate modules will be loaded for the exact same device found on your computer.. like your wifi chipset also has a driver known as madwifi-ng.. without blacklist and installing madwifi-ng you will find both of them autoloaded but only one will work00:48

psycho_oreosloganhoup, well that doesn't help me much, probably a better idea is to pastebin the output for the contents of that blacklist file00:51
klappislowlearner: do you use gdm?00:51
HalvtandKlappi grep: /etc/X11/xorg.conf: No such file or directory00:51
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, ^00:51
slowlearnerklappi: yes00:51
k0d3g3ardazed_:  what does your /etc/fstab contain?00:52
psycho_oreosFrijolie, its saying the file doesn't exist from the strace output00:52
klappislowlearner: you can use gdmsetup to turn off autlogin this allows you to choose different sessions00:52
dazed_im in etc and i dir'd it and found fstab but cant cd into it00:52
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, well "foo bar" doesn't exist, correct00:52
Jordan_UFrijolie, Ok, replace "foo" and "bar" with the actual names you are using, so just take your mv command and put strace in front of it00:52
loganhoupoh wow00:52
loganhoupthat's a directory00:52
k0d3g3ardazed_:  Its a file, not a directory00:52
psycho_oreosFrijolie, err you're meant to replace foo with the current filename and bar with new filename :p00:52
ubyserverHow do I remove LAMP00:52
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, Jordan_U, d'oh!00:52
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  i tried to mount it and it said cant find fstab in etc/fstab or /mtab00:52
psycho_oreosloganhoup, yes full of configs, look for blacklist or blacklist.conf00:52
slowlearnerklappi: cool thanks!00:53
Jordan_UFrijolie, :)00:53
k0d3g3ardazed_:  But you said you can see it?  Can you do a    cat /etc/fstab00:53
psycho_oreosubyserver, doesn't help if you don't say how exactly you installed it, from tar.gz? from deb? or what?00:53
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  yes a bunch of stuff popped up what do u need00:53
ubyserverummm tasksel00:53

klappiHalvtand: grep LoadModule /var/log/Xorg.0.log00:54
k0d3g3ardazed_:  Its not what I need.... its what you need.  You need to understand what it says, and remove any lines that are not valid.  Sounds like its trying to mount stuff that isn't there00:54
psycho_oreosubyserver, for that case you can do apt-get remove.. but probably a better option is to use aptitude instead of apt-get00:54
ubyserverI only use command00:54
ubyserverso apt-get remove will do.00:54
psycho_oreosloganhoup, weird, ath5k is not blacklisted, dmesg might have some info I presume00:55
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  well im lost at that point i dunno what i need or dont nee00:55
loganhoupyay logs...00:55
sidney_to dualboot do i create one ect3 primary partition then the others root swap home inside the primary?00:55
k0d3g3ardazed_:  The format of each line should start with the source of what its trying to mount, the the mount type, then the destination of where it will mount it, etc.  (or something like that - I can't remember the exact order but its pretty obvious when you look at the file)00:55
psycho_oreosloganhoup, there's many many ways to check for potential causes of why it won't autoload00:55
tautologismHey, I asked a question a while ago about ssh'ing back into a server that's running do-release-upgrade under screen.  I'm getting an error from ssh_exchange_identification; I can actually access the machine but I'd like to continue running the upgrade via ssh.  Anybody know more about this?  Thanks00:56
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. :-)00:56
ubottuSSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHHowto for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)00:57
Halvtandklappi got a lot of (II) LoadModule: "something different in every one" I know that my graphics should be the one that says "sis"00:57
k0d3g3ardazed_:  Look at each line, and verify that the source of what it is trying to mount actually exists.  If not, there's your problem.  I suspect this is just a symptom of another problem you are having00:57
dazed_first 2 lines: "/host/ubuntu/disks/root.dsk/     ext4   loop,errors=remount-ro 0" --- "host/ubuntu/disks/swap.disk non       swap   loop,sw 0 0"00:57
k0d3g3ardazed_:  ie.  its trying to mount a nfs volume,and the nfs server is down.  Or something like that00:57
damaguHey all, what do I do if my / partition is getting full?00:57

ubyserverI'm trying to apt-get -f and it can't connect to my mysql server because of incorrect username/password. "psa-api-rpc"00:58
damaguThanks for the sarcasm00:58
klappiHalvtand: are you talking from a seccond pc?00:58
airtonixquestion about zeroconf : i have samba announcing its service from my laptop, but my service-discovery-applet on my desktop is not 'discovering' the laptop shares ... any thoughts.00:58
k0d3g3ardazed_:  /dev/scd0 is your cdrom drive, /dev/fd0 is your floppy disk drive.  Are they active and working?00:58
diss3ntivedamagu:  If your / filesystem is separate from others like /usr /home /var /etc and so on, it may nto be that big of an issue...empty out /tmp and find crap that is taking up space00:58
damaguMy / partition is 8GB but my hard drive is 500GB00:58
ubyserverHence can't clean anything because it fails "Trying to establish test connection..."00:58
psycho_oreosloganhoup, hmm try modprobe -l| grep madwifi00:59
ubyserverAnd the log shows login error for mysql.00:59
diss3ntivedamagu:  Yea, df -h should tell you which partitions you have other than /00:59
pinkspiderwhat is buffer over flow ?00:59
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  yes cdrom works i dont have a floppy00:59
damagudiss3ntive: could it be because I have all these kernels00:59
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, Jordan_U, http://pastebin.com/m34b7bad600:59
k0d3g3ardamagu:  Then check out gparted - it should let you resize partitions.  But be sure to read all the docs as you could wipe everything if you do it wrong00:59
pinkspiderwhat is buffer over flow ?00:59
diss3ntivedamagu:  I have no idea how you have your system set up, but /etc/fstab should define your mountpoints00:59
Halvtandklappi yes00:59
psycho_oreosdamagu, well if / is full it means you've reached your maximum allocated fs for linux (generally)00:59
loganhouppsycho_oreos: no output. Should there be?00:59
michal_is there a way to use my phone's GPS through a usb on comp?00:59

Ziggyzxxyld3xter: I tried to find the default.keyring file to move it, but I only have login.keyring and 5 hidden files .keyringRANDOMLETTERS in that folder... default.keyring does not appear to exist :(01:00
k0d3g3ardazed_:  You can probably remove the mounting of the fd0 then...  But if its complaining about the cdrom, something is wrong with your hardware or Ubuntu's ability to see it01:00
tautologismepinky: thanks, lovely flowers by the way.  I actually am running the upgrade under screen but I can't ssh back in.  I've had this problem a few times, do-release-upgrade seems to do something that prevents new ssh connections.  I can connect to the screen session from a console on the server itself, but I'd like to avoid this route for a couple reasons.01:00
psycho_oreosloganhoup, nope, just checking, strange interface naming, ath0 was meant to be for madwifi-ng not ath5k unless if I'm mistaken01:00
damagudiss3ntive: I have 8GB /  but when I boot up grub is showing about 10 different kernels. Would removing some of them make space on /01:00
klappiHalvtand: ok because we might break your xorg now ^^01:00
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  how do i remove the mounting of fd001:00
bastid_raZordamagu: yes01:01
bastid_raZordamagu: uninstall then via syntapic01:01
klappiHalvtand: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-sis01:01
ericjamesevery time i log in i need to issue the command 'sudo setkeycodes 68 241' to get one of my tablet keys working. where can i store this so that it is done automatically with sudo permission??01:01
ubyserverI can't remove something because it can't connect to mysql server.01:01
k0d3g3ardazed_:  Boot with a recovery cd, and then sudo bash to get root access.  Then just edit the file with vi or whatever your favorite editor is01:01
epinkytautologism: if screen can't recover your session, nothing will do :)01:01
loganhouppsycho_oreos: oddly, I've always had to use ath0 when I wanted to monitor my wifi in something like conky and such.01:01
dazed_k0d3g3ar:  ok01:01
damagubastid_raZor: cool. That's easy. I didn't know you could do that. SHould I backup first or is removing kernels through synaptic safe?01:02
diss3ntivedamagu: That is located under /boot for the kernel images01:02
bastid_raZor!boot | k0d3g3ar follow this guide01:02

TDJACRI'm attempting to install dansguardian with tinyproxy and firehol. It is working alright, except some websites fail to produce content. news.bbc.co.uk, dansguardian.org load the favicon, but the page is blank. See http://ln-s.net/52yc for the full bug report. Any ideas as to why this is happening?01:02
Ziggyzxxylis login.keyring the same as default.keyring?01:02
diss3ntivethe /boot partition should be on its own and / should be on its own01:02
d3xterZiggyzxxyl, then try to move login.keyring to another folder :)01:02
corey__how could I tell apt to stop reconfiguring an application when it's properly installed?01:02
damagudiss3ntive: I don't have a separate partition for /boot so it would be in the / partition too right?01:02
bastid_raZork0d3g3ar: oh,.. whom ever needed it then there it is.. i thought you needed a startup script to run as roon on boot?01:02
d3xterZiggyzxxyl, i think so, because my login.keyring contains all my wlan-passwords and stuff01:02
psycho_oreosloganhoup, not that I'm doubting you, just that usually with ath5k, the interface is normally named wlanX instead of athX.. check iwconfig to see if there's wifiX as well01:02
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, will do (excuse the corny music..hehe I'm embarassed)01:03

diss3ntiveehhhhhh, you dont have a /boot partition?!?01:03
tautologismepinky: no no screen can recover the session, I can do $(screen -x update) just fine from the server.  The problem is that my ssh connections are being rejected with the error "ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host".  They worked just fine prior to starting do-release-upgrade; that's how I started the process.01:03
damagudiss3ntive: I don't have a separate /boot. I have / and /home01:03

psycho_oreosloganhoup, yeah that's definitely ath5k driver, not madwifi-ng umm maybe modinfo ath5k and check to see if the vid:pid matches01:04

epinkytautologism: maybe you'll have to wait timeout, try closing all your ssh and sftp clients01:06
diss3ntivethen yea your kernel images are located under /boot and it will free up space for /01:07
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, hmm, I think the quotes did it...I didn't know that you could do it that way. I've always been messin around with those friggin slashes01:07

ericjamesbastid_raZor: also, I don't have a /boot/grub/menu.lst file01:07

diss3ntivejust dont go delete happy, and know which ones you are deleteing...when you are done you will need to edit the /boot/grub/grub.conf to del the deleted kernels01:08

psycho_oreosFrijolie, and does the file Dreaming.flac exist?01:13
damagubastid_raZor: thanks. And do I remove just the kernel images or the headers or both?01:13
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, of course01:13
damagubastid_raZor: or is there something else I should remove?01:13
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, all the mv command is being done from within that directory01:13
epinkytautologism: then try removing know_hosts ssh file01:13
Halvtandklappi Yeah, I have, but I've got work in the morning... They don't take kindly to people comming in drunk...01:14
corey__panfist, from grub you can choose the recovery boot option01:14
corey__damagu, uname -a01:14

Helsinkiiihi people01:14
epinkytautologism: on the remote machine01:14
bastid_raZordamagu: removing the image will remove everything else associated with that kernelversion. after you finish with removing them run a sudo apt-get update and then a sudo apt-get upgrade   ..just to be sure you havent' removed something you need.01:14

epinkydazed_: enter recovery mode and edit /etc/fstab by hand, comment out offending line01:15
psycho_oreosloganhoup, I'd read up more about it, for the time being the dirty hack should suffice but check other modprobe.d configs for example01:16

dazed_epinky:  what command to edit01:16
xjkx[offtopic] on boot: PXE-E01: PCI Vendor and Device ID do not match (got any idea of what it means ? googled and found complains, but no explanations)01:16
psycho_oreosFrijolie, weird, I'm sure Dreaming.flac doesn't exist, tried it on my setup and it works perfectly01:16
tautologismepinky: It seems to be something specifically with do-release-upgrade; I've never had problems with ssh before but recently I've tried a few times to run do-release-upgrade; every time I tried to do it over ssh it had this problem.  Before when it happened the server locked up and I had to shut down with the power switch; after that ssh was okay without any adjustments.01:16
psycho_oreosFrijolie, maybe its a portion of the filename and not a complete one :P01:16
loganhoupPsycho_oreos: Okay thanks.01:16
psycho_oreosFrijolie, or maybe try ls -1| grep Dreaming.flac01:17
Frijoliepsycho_oreos, hmm, interesting discovery. I have banshee open (not playing any songs) and it won't rename the files when that's open. closed banshee tried again and it works01:17
pinkspiderassembly + c using01:17
corey__panfist, yeah, so? that's what it is suppose to do.01:17
corey__panfist, without the terminal you would find it very difficult to diagnose and correct your situation01:17
corey__coolkehon, did someone from #python suggest you ask that question in here?01:17
panfistcorey__ well i have a terminal and i'm still finding it hard to correct the situation01:17

panfistcorey__ i've inspected the xorg log and i only see one thing that matches '-i error'; that's AIGLX isn't working, falling back on software rendering01:18
corey__panfist, you always have the option to reinstall if you don't feel comfortable working inside a terminal.01:18

d3xteryes, but why does it have such a strange id?01:32
d3xterxjkx, because there is no vendor with the id of 000101:33

bazhangDread348, which version of Ubuntu ; using which tool to write the usb04:32
Dread348I am using minimal CD image and I have tried using UNEbootin and others.  All with the same result04:34
Dread348I suspect that like a GUI version I need to use the install command but I don't know it for the CLI04:35
thiefyDread348, could it be something stupidly easy, like making sure your bios is set to try to boot from teh HD , and not just from the usb key?04:35
Dread348Sorry, I am REALLY new to linux04:35

thiefyDread348, no prob, but nice to try the easy solutions first.04:35

blakkhei1!info mailx | acovrig04:42
acovriglol, i've seen turorials that haven't worked, but they configured their mailx to use gmail as their smarthost04:42
thiefyjacobfogg_, using firefox?04:43
ubottuacovrig: mailx (source: bsd-mailx (8.1.2-0.20081101cvs-2ubuntu1)): Transitional package for mailx rename. In component main, is optional. Version 1:20081101-2ubuntu1 (karmic), package size 8 kB, installed size 36 kB04:43
blakkhei1acovrig: i do that with ssmtp04:43
acovrigblakkhei1, how04:43
Loshaacovrig: mailx is a cli front-end. You also need a mail back end configured. I use ssmtp for the backend, personally04:44
thiefyjacobfogg_, try chrome. go to any youtube page and you'll see a link to chrome for linux. see if it is any different.04:44
blakkhei1acovrig: setup the ssmtp.conf to use the gmail account, pipe the commands to mail04:44
thiefyjacobfogg_, i just inst. chrome and it works great on 9.10.04:44
acovrigwhere is ssmtp.conf?04:44
Dread348thiefy, I have tried that....Normally, when you install from a USB key.  After installation can you remove the USB Key and boot to linux?  Or do you have to leave the key in and execute a command to transfer the bootable system to the HDD?04:45
Loshaacovrig: apt-get install ssmtp. Then it's in /etc/ssmtp04:45
Dread348thiefy, that sounded REALLY dumb04:45
thiefyDread348, i know nothing about a CLI / no gui install, but after you've done the install, you can shut down and reboot and it should be all good to go. meaning - no other command...04:46
acovrigok, in the conf, it says hostname=ubuntu (my computer's name), would I put my dyndns address here?04:46

acovrigok, I have gone through the conf, now what?04:47
thiefyDread348, you could reboot with a GUI ubuntu on a usb key and see waht's on the hard drive. see if the bloody OS is even there. haha04:48
Loshaacovrig: now type something like: mailx -v -s 'test1' acovrig@gmail.com04:49
Loshaacovrig: then hit return, type your message, end with ctrl-d04:49

wifihelpi have done itbefore and ubuntu wants the hex05:02

semitoneswubi, you'll have to be more specific05:17
wifihelplets try it05:17
Loshaacovrig: well, as I said, it's do-able, but for a beginner it will probably take weeks of debugging. I think it would be easier to setup an email address on gmail and have a daemon process check it periodically for mail from a certain user and then take appropriate action. Much less hassle and less risk than exposing a mail server to the internet05:17
thiefywifihelp,  taht is good. use AES not tkip + aes05:18
supernoobhelp: nautilus crashes when trying to connect network/smb/etc05:18

Loshaacovrig: you'd have to write your own e.g. a shell script that's always running. Welcome to the wonderful world of programming...05:23
thiefyDread348, go get a distro called parted magic (it'll fix partitions and hds.)05:24

thiefyDread348, - if your partition is having a problem... taht'll fix it. OR maybe you just need to edit your boot file.05:24

ubottuthiefy, please see my private message05:32
Loshathiefy: well, some of it's marketing, but you must've noticed that some people just don't behave responsibly when they're completely anonymous05:33

thiefyLosha, yeah, i see yer point.  i heard it gives people a sense of joining something. so it makes them wanna come back.05:34
lostinspace_46semitones, Not for me. I need to blacklist 2 files, use my windows wlan drivers, and run initramfs.  If I burned to a DVD R/W could I do it after the burn?05:34
Loshathiefy: one of those 'cloud computing' deals where you rent the cpu time and disk space from amazon...05:34
Explore1Hi all, when i connect a v4l2src, how can i know to which /dev/videoX, it is connected? i mean X being 0, 1, 2etc...?05:34
thiefyLosha, like those cursed grocery store 'club cards' - they make you go back so you can 'save' but really they are just to make you not want to go to a diff store.05:34
LLStarksummm. why are you guys forcing the deluge daemon if it is completely non-functional behind college firewalls?05:35
seanbrystoneforcing? if im not mistaking ubuntu uses transmission not deluge by default05:36
thiefyLosha, i see. hmm, i would look into amazon instance help, as opposed to ubuntu help. i think you'd find better answers there. (wherever that is)05:36
thiefyseanbrystone, you are right, it does come with transmission.05:36
Explore1Hi all, when i connect a v4l2src, how can i know to which /dev/videoX, it is connected? i mean X being 0, 1, 2etc...?any help please??05:36
geniilostinspace_46: An oldie but goodie: http://www.ubuntugeek.com/creating-custom-ubuntu-live-cd-with-remastersys.html05:37
seanbrystoneactually transmission eats up 100% cpu, Deluge doesn't05:37
semitoneslostinspace_46, hmm, do any of those steps require a reboot?05:37
GSF1200Sanyone know of an improved alt tab for xfce?05:37

coz_GSF1200S,  are you using compiz?05:38
duncaAnyone know a good guide that can help me prep and install and patch WoW using Wine and PlayOnLinux.. would be great -tipboy133@hotmail.com-05:38
GSF1200Scoz_: no but I can be.. why?05:38
thiefyGSF1200S, it is easy with compiz installed.05:38
lostinspace_46genii, Tried that...ended up with an 8 gig ISO.  semitones  initramfs does05:38
coz_GSF1200S,  depending on what yo u want associated with alt+tab... I am assuming window picking...compiz is much more configurable for that05:38
thiefyGSF1200S, there you can easily tweak alt-tab behaviour.05:38
semitoneslostinspace_46, er, sorry then, I don't know05:39
LoshaExplore1: I would expect there to be a message in /var/log/dmesg mentioning which /dev/videoX is being used....05:39
GSF1200Sthiefy, coz_: hmm ok.. hopefully it has support for seperate x sessions (dual head setup).. Thanks.. never thought about compiz05:39
coz_GSF1200S,  compiz will work with both instances  as long as you set up the system for it05:40
lostinspace_46semitones,  NP, I'll get it worked out05:40
GSF1200Scoz_: cool.. ill give it a shot05:40
coz_GSF1200S,  in terms of the xlt+tab behavior on dual set ups  ...I personall  have nvidia so  I dont need separate xscreens05:40
thiefyGSF1200S, i think it does. i have dual monitors and compiz is kind to me. and i have nvidia card too.... coz.05:41
coz_GSF1200S,   I am assuming...although not tested here...that there should be no issue...however if there is meet us  in #compiz...one of us will try to figure out the issue if its possible05:41
GSF1200Si have an nvidia card too, but i have 2 vid cards05:41
thiefyooh, sneaky.05:41
coz_GSF1200S,  oh  mmmm  cool   also not tested here :)05:41
coz_GSF1200S,  however I do know many have that set up  with no issues05:41
GSF1200Scool.. i had no issues with the dual head, and ive had no issues in the past with compiz.. ill try to set it up and if i have issues ill roll over to the compiz channel05:42
coz_GSF1200S, I personally dont have the hardware to test all situations...however  give it a try  cant hurt and you can always revert if you have to :)05:43
acovrigWhen I run getmail, from http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/backup-gmail-in-linux-with-getmail/, I get /usr/share/getmail4/getmailcore/baseclasses.py:26: DeprecationWarning: the sets module is deprecated05:43
Loshalostinspace_46: in theory, you could take an .iso, unpack it, change files, return initramfs and then repack the iso. You'd have to make sure the repacked iso is bootable. But that's what remastersys is supposed to do anyway I thought (disclaimer: I've never used it). Might be easier to just supply a second CD with drivers and a few shell scripts to update the standard distro05:43
coz_acovrig,  are you wanting to back up the gmail  email?05:44
coz_acovrig, ah mm   hold on let me check something05:44
acovrigbut in .txt files as they come in, not all in 1 zip per say05:44
migg137hello, i just installed ubuntu and i wont let me enable the desktop effects, i have a modern ati dedicated graphics card, and it worked on my laptop with an intel chipset any help apreciated thanks05:44
mgmuscarisigh... xorg 1.6 and fglrx 8.7... any idea how to get this working in karmic? since there's no more xorg.conf, i'm up a creek without a paddle...05:45
mgmuscarihow do i enable glx05:45
coz_migg137,  here is a short factoid  about that    Compiz requires at least a Radeon 7000 (or M6). For 7000 to HD4xxx series cards, you can use the open source "radeon" driver. HD2xxx and later series cards are also supported by the proprietary "fglrx" driver.05:45
thiefymigg137, check 'hardware drivers' in the system - admin menu. run sudo apt-get update first though.05:45
coz_migg137,  if you want more indepth help go to #compiz and talk with soreau05:45
coz_acovrig,   look here   http://www.gmail-backup.com/download05:46
migg137coz_,  i have like 1gb dedicated graphics05:46
yoyomawpa wasnt supported by the ap05:47
wolterklappi, hey, good to be able to contact you again. I really need help with this preloading thing. Should I ask you here or go to the classroom05:47
coz_migg137,   I am not up on ati at all   but soreau   in #compiz  would be the one to talk to about this  at this time of day05:47
coz_migg137,   if you want to wait until tomorrow talk with adamk  or soreau05:47
wolterklappi, IF you are willing to help me haha05:47
wolteri've been looking up this for hours05:47
acovrigcoz_, I need to automate it, and background it, I want to be able to run a shell script the moment an e-mail arrives05:47
migg137coz_, thanks05:47
coz_acovrig,  ok then I am going to suggest going to the ##linux channel ,,,, I am betting they have another alternative for that05:48
coz_acovrig,  did you check into fetchmail ?   I havent but it may do what you want05:49
migg137coz_,  sorry for being a noob but how do i talk to soreau05:49
coz_acovrig,   http://lifehacker.com/235207/geek-to-live--back-up-gmail-with-fetchmail05:49
tonsofpcsardchoille - I asked you not to private message me without permission.  Please stop.05:49
lostinspace_46Losha,  Actually, I could copy my updated initramfs and Win drivers and remove the 2 files that need blacklisted. But I have no idea of where to put what in the ISO.05:49
coz_migg137,  well go to #compiz channel  and type  soreau  and ask a question...if he is at his system he will respond..05:50
coz_migg137,   i would wait a few minutes just in case he has fallen asleep :)05:50
migg137coz_,  how do i join that channel, im not very good at xchat05:50
geniimgmuscari: You can generate an xorg.conf by: logout to gdm ... choose "console login" as session type. Once logged into console, stop X: sudo stop gdm         then generate a new xorg: sudo X -configure       then copy it to where it should be: sudo mv xorg.conf.new /etc/X11      then restart gdm: sudo start gdm05:51
coz_migg137,  where you type something here..tyep    /join #compiz05:51
kjdashman irc?05:51
migg137coz_,  thanks alot05:51
coz_migg137,  no problem05:52
mgmuscarigenii: thanks05:52

pepeeshashank, in the console: man rotate05:56
shashankpepee, trying it right now!05:56

grndslmit's my first time using 64bit os... "aptitude install flashplugin-nonfree" is still installing flashplugin for 32-bit... what do i do for 64bit??05:57
floff_damn, this is hard05:57
shupathats what she said05:57
semitonesafaik the 32 bit version of flash works better than the linux 64 bit version, atm05:58
semitonesI could be wrong though05:58
pepeegrndslm, try flashplugin-installer05:58
kfoxi have a problem: http://imgur.com/zD7o505:58
kfoxhow can it say the file does not exsist, when its right there??05:58
pepeewell, all we have problems05:59
shashankPepee, I read the manual, figured out this is perhaps the command: rotate --rotate 270 file *.jpg05:59
SwedeMikekfox: it doesn't know how to run it probably.05:59
pepeekfox, use tab completion05:59
pepeei mean, use tab to complete the name06:00
lostinspace_46Losha, Yeah, with about 12 people in it..lol  However, as usual, asking the question in here has given me an idea or two.  Thanks though.06:00
shashankPepee, but I get a return message: if: Expression Syntax06:00
kfoxI did and still the same problem06:00
shashankWhat is tab?06:00
kfoxI can vi the file06:00
grndslmpepee, flashplugin-installer looks to be the same as flashplugin-nonfree...06:00
SwedeMikekfox: what is it then?06:00
induskfox, you are running a binary called splunk and its not there06:00
kfoxI can delete it, move it06:00
grndslmstill pointing toward 32bit files06:00

mgmuscariindus: 1.6 is the version in the karmic repositories. i'm not sure how to force installation of an older version06:27
indusmgmuscari, then nothing doing06:27
indusmgmuscari, why use 1.4 ?06:27
mgmuscariindus: 1.6 is apparently incompatible with the latest version of fglrx as well as compiz06:28
mikelissburkey: who06:28
mgmuscariindus: after sourcing 1.6, building it, and installing it, everything broke06:29
indusmgmuscari, fglrx is incpmpatible with xorg 1.706:29
indusnot 1.606:29
induswho told you06:29

burkeymikeliss:  does who work for windows terminal server from a ubuntu workstation06:30
mgmuscari... well, karmic sure does use xorg06:30
mgmuscarimy problem is that i can't set rendering method or anything for fglrx06:30
indusDID you try the open source drivers?06:31
mgmuscariopen source drivers have no 3d support for my chipset06:31
indusmgmuscari, ok which chipset06:31
Gracenotesmaybe I should log out/in06:31
alankilamgmuscari: also, fglrx has a distressing tendency to drop support for any older chipset, so what works at version x no longer works at x+1.06:31
mgmuscarifglrx usually recognizes the card as hd3650, but it's a firegl v5700 mobile06:32
indusalankila, fglrx or AMD?06:32
DaemonFCalankila, any RadeonHD model should work06:32
indusmgmuscari, oh firegl06:32
mgmuscarifor all intents and purposes06:32
alankilaindus: err...06:32
DaemonFCit's just the old Radeon series and things like the 200m06:32
indusalankila, are you aware that amd funds development of both fglrx and the open source driver06:33

nimittuxbut know about  Networking well06:33
alankilaindus: it still doesn't change the fact that you can have a supported card at one version and then have crippled support on the next version.06:33
nimittuxand yes also06:33
indusalankila, its only crippled for old card06:33
nimittuxknow about asterisk..06:33
indusalankila, and you have a diff driver so nothing is crippled06:34
indusalankila, like a choice\06:34
alankilaindus: let's not mince words about this. I have found personally this out the hard way that you are forced to shift to the open-source driver at some point, and when it happened to me the open-source driver really wasn't very good at driving that card. It's OK now, though.06:34
indusalankila, of course, 8.04 still supports everything,06:34
indusalankila, its better than ok now actually06:35

diz_Childcan the ubuntu-9.10-desktop-i386.iso run on AMD64?06:35
indusalankila, but 2d on fglrx sucks06:35
alankilaand thanks to lack of ABI stability when you update xorg you generally can no longer run the old driver. Which is a hate point for me. Stable ABI would be better, or something.06:35

jacquesdupontdalankila, in fact the x11 server havn't been configured/built with xinerama wich cause conflict with nvidia priority driver, a solution seems to be to recompile or add xinerama to x11xorgserver that's why i'm asking how06:39
Tetikus_22_Bi need instruction how to install  Fifa 2010 pro evolution DVD06:39
alankilaindus: as I said, my problem has been fixed by improvements in radeon driver. I used radeonhd at first, but it sucked for that hardware, visual glitches and low performance06:39
Tetikus_22_B3 times i install but result fail06:39
alankilafor the record, I'm perfectly happy about the ATI X1250 (RS500) support provided by the open-source driver. I only wish I could have used fglrx longer because it worked fine until it suddenly refused to work with RS500 at all.06:40
alankilaAnd I wish I had never touched radeonhd because it is apparently bad unless you have something actually designated as "HD". Maybe.06:40

sirconisCan I solicit some help please? I'm trying to install ubuntu on a dedicated partition. It gets 26% of the way and says it failed to read data from the disk. I've tried burning at a much slower speed, I've redownloaded the image and burned again, and I've never had a problem w/ this DVD drive before. Is there another way? Can I place the image on USB flash memory?06:43
Joker_-_My sound stops working after a few minutes. Should I call it a hardware problem?06:43
indusbut we are spoilt for choice with 8.04 which does support ,and i hope something significant with 10.0406:43
indusso the open drivers currently being really nice06:43
Joker_-_It's an onboard sound-card, never tested it and I have several pci sound cards lying around...06:43
indusvery impressive indeed06:43
alankilaNow if only you had open drivers from day one, rather than waiting 1-2 years...06:44
indusits just a matter of time before nvidia drops support so then blame both companiess?06:44
Joker_-_sirconis: you can install from several other media, including the very same hard drive06:44
indusjust good fortune they support older cards06:44
indusor make older drivers work with newer xorg rather06:45
sirconisJoker_-_ , what do I need to do to use the image on my HD as it is now and install to a seperate partition?06:45
indusill probably try nexuiz today with the open drivers tonight06:45
alankilaindus: I have never had to regret going with nvidia, but I've always regreted going with ATI. That's a decade of experience, so until nvidia does something really ugly, they have my full support and endorsement.06:45
alankilaI think even today I could use the nvidia legacy drivers against ubuntu 9.10 to run desktop with geforce4 or something.06:46
indusalankila, yes i know, but i recently moved to ATI months before, so the experience is pleasant06:46
sirconisThe file system of the partition has been created successfully, as well as the Swap.06:46

anto9ussirconis: unetbootin will help you create a bootable memory stick but check you have enough memory to run the livecd installer. You might need the alternative install image.06:48

indusalankila, initially i was not keen to use the radeon driver, but this issue made my a little partial06:48

sirconisI'll try it using the HDD first, and hope that works06:48
theadminnixpet: Elaborate. What do you mean?06:48
Joker_-_sirconis: just make a partition at the end of your drive, something like 900mb06:49

alankilaindus: I saw that. Abysmal performance, no difference between GPUs, either. That's strange. If I would have to guess it's doing 90 % CPU-based software rendering in the driver. :p06:53
Joker_-_theadmin: I don't see why you would do that, and I'm not absolutely certain it would. My very wild guess would be that you would need to recompile a kernel (I think fat support is a module by default)06:53

Roxyhart0hi guys i got saba 3.4.5 and i want to install on ubuntu 9.10 somebody know how to do that?07:27
ae86-drifterwhats a good lightweight GIMP alternative07:27
sirconisrunning winMd5Sum where to I get the md5 to compare it to?07:27
ae86-drifter!best image07:27
Roxyhart0my file is .tar and i need to install that but i dont know how to do? somebody knows?07:28
ae86-driftersirconis, the md5 must be generated07:28
sirconisI'm guessing it was. I got this: 8790491bfa9d00f283ed9dd2d77b390607:28
ae86-drifter!tar | Roxyhart007:28
ubottuRoxyhart0: Files with extensions .tar, .gz, .tgz, .zip, .bz2, .7z, .ace and other archive file formats can be opened with file-roller (GNOME) or Ark (KDE) - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FileCompression07:28
sirconisthere is nothing in the "comprae" box though to compare it to.07:28
indussirconis, compare it with the md5 from the iso on the website07:29
terminhellae86-drifter: hmm07:29
Roxyhart0yes but they come tih samba files, what i need to do to install this samba verison in my ubuntu07:29
ae86-driftersirconis, the whole point of it is to actually have a sum to compare in the first place07:29
alankilaRoxyhart0: is there a reason why the ubuntu's prepackaged samba binaries aren't OK for you?07:30
mahiti-irchello when is ubuntu 10.10 releasing?07:30
Roxyhart0i did tar but i need install samba version 3.4.5 in my ubuntu 9.10 which come with samba 3.4.007:30
sirconisae86-drifter yes, I was just looking for the has page, found it.07:30
alankilamahiti-irc: I'd imagine on the 10th month of 2010? Aren't you more interested in the 10.04 anyway?07:30
wolteris it decent to get 22s boot time until login screen07:30
Roxyhart0no have bugs07:30
alankilawolter: similar to mine.07:31
Roxyhart0version 3.4.0 have bugs, 9.4.1 solve it07:31
sirconisthe md5 hashes are the same.07:31
casperletHelp plz. it's Ubuntu 9.10(desktop). the mouse works abnormally.07:31
wolteralankila, how much does it take after you login until desktop is usable?07:31
mahiti-ircalankila, oh ya man am really waiting for 10.0407:31
mahiti-ircthe Lucid Lynx07:31
alankilawolter: another 20 seconds, maybe, maybe less.07:32
wolteralankila, do you have a bootchard image?07:32
alankilawolter: no. I can't generate one any more either, I have switched to Evil Empire Operating System on this box07:32
Explore1wolter: are you sure that cheese has audio support? can you check once? bcz i dont really see anything like audio possibility..07:32
wolterExplore1, it has....07:33
sirconistolarn , ae86-drifter , indus , the hashes are the same. So try one of those other .iso recorders you mentioned then?07:33
wolterExplore1, as in #cheese channel07:33

ubottuExplore1: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!07:33
indussirconis, sorry, but i didnt read what the problem you have, can you restate it07:33
tolarnsirconis i would. I always had problems with magic iso07:33
Roxyhart0how i can create a installation package from a tar file?07:33
alankilawolter: I never paid 100 % attention to how long it takes until GNOME is usable. I know the desktop appears and you'd start launching apps and it'll take a while before they appear, I can't hear the disk drives because modern drives are silent... so 20s is estimate07:33
casperletHelp plz. it's Ubuntu 9.10(desktop). the mouse works abnormally. if i want click something, i must hold the left key 2 seconds, then release it.07:33
sirconisk. here we go disc #6 :(07:33
wolteralankila, i mean until the icons appear in your desktop07:34
alankilawolter: well, considerably less, that'd be in the order of 10 seconds maybe.07:34
ae86-drifterwhats the name of that best bot channel07:34
alankilaAfter hitting enter to login prompt's password prompt.07:34
wolteralankila, oh my god.. whats that os again?07:34
wolteralankila, or are you optimizing login in some way?07:35
alankilaI heard compiz churns for some >5 seconds on pure CPU when it starts, so major part of delay comes there, apparently. Also I got a large background, which certainly took several seconds of pure processing.07:35
tolarnsirconis no cds?07:35
tolarnor only dvds07:35
alankilawolter: I have switched to windows 7 on my desktop. And it's too late to ask, but I never did anything special.07:35
sirconistolarn I'm out of CDs, so yes only DVDs07:35
wolteralankila, oh07:36
ae86-drifteralankila, are you using a 486?07:36
wolteralankila, yeah, windows 7 is booting quite fast07:36
sirconistolarn I'm guessing this venture is costing me about .50c a pop. maybe less.07:36
ace__Hello. I want a command to be run at 8:45am (monday-friday) and another command at 8pm (monday-friday). I set crontab to do it. But can someone tell me if this is correct ---> http://www.nomorepasting.com/getpaste.php?pasteid=3170407:36
alankilaae86-drifter: someone whose job it is to optimize compiz told me that it takes like 5 seconds when it starts, so I just relayed that07:36
ae86-drifter!cron | ace__07:36
ubottuace__: cron is a way to schedule execution of software/scripts. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto  -  There is also a decent Howto at http://www.tech-geeks.org/contrib/mdrone/cron&crontab-howto.htm07:36
alankilaae86-drifter: I haven't measured it for *my* system. And I have a 2560x1600 display, and if you put a large enough jpeg to not look crappy on that, it will take some time to display.07:37
ace__ae86-drifter: I was looking for a yes/no07:37
ae86-drifteralankila, i'm sure that would depend on system performance07:37
tolarnsirconis if that doesnt work your next option would be https://shipit.ubuntu.com/07:37
ae86-drifterace__, sorry im not that good at bash scripting07:38
alankilaae86-drifter: yes, of course. But there are mitigating factors like compiz needing to load something from disk and all rotating platter drives are about equally fast, give or take a factor of 207:38
sirconistolarn , I'm burning at the lowest speed. I'm not taking any chances at this point. In InfraRecorder (I think that's the one you suggested) what write method do you suggeest?07:38
alankilaso even if it's fast, it's probably bounded from one end by the size of executable and how scattered around the filesystem its parts are. That's just an example, though, I hate that I named "compiz" for it. It's just that there's more than CPU to it07:39
sirconisSAO / TAO , etc.07:39
tolarnwhatever default its setup to. Thats all I did was default settings07:39
mehedi34Has there any off line English-English dictionary for ubuntu?07:39
ae86-drifteralankila, yeah, i personally don't use compiz as i like my resources07:39
ae86-drifteralankila, i use xfce, instead of gnome and i have a blank background, the desktop is usable as soon as it apears07:40
* alankila 's linux ran on a nice RAID-1 setup. I can't tolerate single-drive systems for being TOO SLOW :)07:40
alankilaI should get SSD one of these days, though.07:40
mehedi34Has there any off line English-English dictionary for ubuntu?07:40
ae86-drifteralankila, wait a year or so for SSDs i think07:41
alankilaae86-drifter: yeah, all that sort of stuff surely helps. I also used to use a single-color background on weaker systems, to save on Xorg size & startup time07:41
RPG-MasterGAH! Why does it take soooo long for buttons to respond when I click on them? :(07:42
alankilaat least at one point nautilus used to cache some private pixmap copy of the entire background and that took double the RAM it strictly speaking needed to ... not sure if it does it anymore07:42
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, how are we supposed to know with such little info07:42
ActionParsnipYo yo yo07:42
sirconisalright, it's done burning. Here we go again. :P wish me luck07:42
tolarnGood luck man. Let me give you my email07:42
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: I'm not sure where to start.... what info do I need to provide?07:43
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, which buttons are you talking about? what DE, PC specs, what apps are you running etc.07:43
ActionParsnip!details | rpg-master07:44
ubotturpg-master: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."07:44
Mehedi_SimonHas there any off line English-English dictionary for ubuntu?07:44
ae86-drifteryou cant just say "Why does it take soooo long for buttons to respond" and expect us to know what your'e talkin bout07:45
RPG-MasterIt's like this: I click a button for the first time in several minutes, it animates like it's going down, then the app "grays out", and then it actually reacts. For several minutes after that all the buttons in that app will work just fine.07:45
RPG-Masterthen it will start all over again :/07:45
lostinspace_46If I am running an ubuntu live CD, how much control do I have over my O/S?07:45
Primer3The GUI is getting locked07:46
kemsiroMehedi_Simon, try stardict07:46
alankilaRPG-Master: it sounds like the application has had its file cache reduced to next to nothing, or it has been swapped out, to me.07:46
ActionParsnipRpg-master: if you disable effects is it ok?07:46
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: Let me try that07:46
indusActionParsnip, whats up .07:46
Mehedi_Simonhow i can install it?07:46
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, GNOME? standard ubuntu install? and is this for every single app? what are the specs of your PC?07:46
tolarnlostinspace_46 I belive thats just setup as a demo. Not to do anything special.07:46
alankilaRPG-Master: in other words, it smells like something is consuming a lot of resources periodically on your systems, and your apps stall because crucial memory pages are not available to them.07:46
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: as much as an installed system except you can't reboot to a different kernel07:46
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, how did you partition and install ubuntu?07:47
Primer3Does anyone know if its possible to use a Ubuntu Server to extend the range of a wireless network if the server has a wireless card?07:47
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: Sorry, Yes, 9.10 on a laptop with 2.4ghz Turon and 128mb of shared graphics07:47
RPG-Masternvidea, too07:47
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, Could I go online from the O/S?07:47
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: Full hard drive07:47
tolarnPrimer3 I think thats a power hack on the card.07:47
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: you will be constrained by ram amount, otherwise it will run like an installed system07:47
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, did you run through the installation with default configuration?07:47
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: yep07:48
tolarnprimer3 you boost the power the transmitter pretty much07:48
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: provided you can setup you networking (or if its auto-detected) then yes07:48
RPG-Masteralankila: how can I tell?07:48
alankilaRPG-Master: it's somewhat matter of expertise. Linux has a program called "free". It can be run in a terminal and it tells vital system statistics.07:49
ActionParsnipRpg-master: press alt+f2, type: metacity --replace ,then click ok07:49
roccity_Primer3, you can try a stronger antenna07:49
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, type top and press enter as well07:49
RPG-Master:O I have 68% of my ram being used as cache07:49
nmvictorwhich package provides javac in ubuntu?07:49
brokenwallanyone able to help me with my stupid Intel Wifi 5100 and DHCP issues07:49
alankilaRPG-Master: if you have large number of swap pages in use (last line, second value), that indicates something is writing to swap a lot. Similarly, if the cached value is very low -- it's usually 100-200 MB, I bet -- then that could also be evidence of some kind of memory pressure.07:50
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, how much RAM and swap space?07:50
roccity_whats wrong brokenwall07:50
ActionParsnipBrokenwall: still no good huh07:50
brokenwallnope Action07:50
brokenwalli got the wired working07:50
brokenwallbut the DHCP is flakey at best07:50
nmvictorwhich package provides javac in ubuntu?07:50
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: I /think/ like 8 or 10gigs07:50
wolterhi, does anybody use preload? In that case, does it create a process named preload or what?07:50
ActionParsnipBrokenwall: i'd use ndisgtk til you get righted07:50
alankilanmvictor: sun-java6-jdk07:50
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: And 3gigs of RAM07:50
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, you can type "top" in a terminal and see what prcess is hogging your resources07:51
ActionParsnipWolter: I use it but I'm not home to run ps. Sorry07:51
wolterthanks ActionParsnip07:51
alankilaRPG-Master: then it should not be a memory issue, because 3 GB is very difficult to exhaust in normal circumstances...07:51
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, then type "sudo kill (process id here)"07:51
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, Not sure how to phrase this. How do I get control of the O/S? For instance, just opening folders I get a ton of "no permissions" messages.07:51
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: OK, looking at "top"... which column am I looking at?07:51
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, which is using most RAM and CPU??07:52
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: are they on an internal drive or part of the ubuntu OS?07:52
brokenwallok well i got the wireless finding networks and the wired works but DHCP never works on the wifi and sometimes works on the wired07:52
RPG-Masterae86-drifter: XORG07:52
roccity_brokenwall, what about assigning dns to the wireless and the wired07:52
ActionParsnipRpg-master: what is the output of: lspci | grep -i vga07:52
ae86-drifterRPG-Master, maybe your graphics card driver is playing up, you could try using a different version of it, xorg, and then try a new kernel07:53
roccity_brokenwall, and a ip07:53
Awesome3000lostinspace_46: it is probally your user group07:53
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, My home folder is one I believe07:53
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: 00:12.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation C67 [GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M] (rev a2)07:53
* Hannibal is away: I'm busy07:54
crazycoolI have changed /etc/init/gdm.conf file. Will it be replaced on the next update system?07:54
ActionParsnipRpg-master: you can add the nvidia ppa and install a newer driver.07:54
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, Don't really understand your question07:54
RPG-MasterAnd XORG is using "7 cpu and 3.4 mem"07:54
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: ok is it the home in the liveCD or home on an internal drive07:54
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: I'll try that07:54
brokenwallroccity_: i am on the wired right now via static ip07:54
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, Ahh home on internal drive07:55
alankilaRPG-Master: is that from the % column, like using 3.4 % of memory?07:55
roccity_brokenwall, can you use that same ip for the wireless and then at least see if you can ping the router?07:55
RPG-Masteralankila: Yes07:55
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: the /home folder on the live cd iis on the ram drive and will be accessible by your user. The home on the internel drive is owned by a different user07:55
roccity_brokenwall, or one in that range07:55
alankilathen it is OK. I think.07:55
brokenwallok brb07:56
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: you can get around it with: gksudo nautilus07:56
dugI have a problem with ubuntu 9.10 where my system isnt running init scripts,  my run level is "N 2" but no start up scripts start,   sysv-rc-conf shows all the services set to run on level 2,  update-rc.d show it set too07:56
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, I mispoke.../home/daniel07:56
ActionParsnipLostinspace: the live cd username is "ubuntu" so unless the username you use on the installed system is that you will be denied access07:56
RPG-Mastershould I use this PPA? https://edge.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates07:57
ActionParsnipLostinspace_42: so you can use gksudo to run nautilus with elevated access and the permissions won't apply ;)07:57
ActionParsnipRpg-master: in a websearch engine search for: nvidia ppa07:58
ActionParsnipRpg-master: I think its called nvidia-vpau or somesuch07:58
thiefyis somesuch a real word?07:59
ActionParsnipRpgmaster: you can install the 195 driver from that if you wish or try a slightly older one to see which gives you a good display07:59
broken_ok im on the wireless with a static IP07:59
ActionParsnipThiefy: I think its a coloquialism (sp). Not sure08:00
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, ubuntu@ubuntu# gksudo nautilus /path/to file?08:00
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: It says its only for those with cards that support video accelerated mpeg playback08:00
=== broken_ is now known as brokenwall
roccity_broken_, so it works with static but not dhcp08:00
RPG-MasterI think08:00
brokenwallso i am only really having DHCP problems08:00
roccity_brokenwall, hold let me test something08:00
ActionParsnipRpg-master: it also has the 195 driver. You can use the 185 or 190 if you wish08:01
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: OK, will try :)08:01
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: sure, or you can use the alt+f2 dialogue. Both will achieve the same end08:01
zslashzhow to we create a custom icon on desktop, and how to edit the target of this icon???????08:02
ActionParsnipRpg-master: I use the 195 with my gf 615008:02
RPG-MasterActionParsnip: Did you notice any improvements?08:02
ActionParsnipZslashz: you can drag icons from the menu to desktop08:02
ActionParsnipRpg-master: I don't game so no. I just know it works08:03
roccity_brokenwall, not sure why it doesn't pick up dhcp can you get dhcp with the wired?08:03
zslashzi want to create an custom icon for a program which runs on a server in another place08:03
edbianIs all of the software in the repos legal?08:03
brokenwalli wonder if its a router issue08:03

ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: what won't?08:06
brokenwallthe DHCP pool starts at 50 all the way to 25008:06
roccity_brokenwall, do you have another computer that you can test to see if it is assigning ip's08:06
timfrostSPF: have you installed all the build dependencies for the package?08:07
brokenwallit assigns ips in windows on this laptop08:07
ActionParsnipBrokenwall: ok then if your dhcp pool is 2 then there are no more ips left are there. Check the pool08:07
SPFtimfrost: I have installed build-essential and kernel-sources*08:07
brokenwallmy pool is not 208:07
brokenwallthere is plenty of available ips08:07

timfrostSPF: what are you trying to compile?08:08
mactimesI don't have input on Skype, to be more specific.08:09
ActionParsnipZslashz: you just make a new link, you can also right click the desktop and make a new launcher which will give a gui to what is launched08:09
brokenwallI have DNS Masq turned on in my router'08:09
ActionParsnipBrokenwall: are you restricting dhcp clients to a set list of mac addresses?08:10
roccity_brokenwall, when you try and get dhcp on wireless does it give a error or say that it isup and running?08:10
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip, The internet on the CD.Need to use ndiswrapper, my Win wlan drivers, blacklist 2 files, and run initramfs, then reboot to have wireless to work.08:10
zslashzi know this but the problem is..on my desktop my right click menu does contain create new launcher as it did on 9.0408:10

ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: you can do all that in the livecd08:10
brokenwalli don't have any MAC restrictions on my router08:10
brokenwalli know this issue isn't a problem at the house because the same problems happen at my office08:11
brokenwalland the public wifi in the mall below my office08:11
timfrostSPF: the sdevelopment libraries are in a -dev or -devel package, not the run-time package (eg libxml2-dev is needed to compile a program that uses the Gnome libxml2 library)08:11
roccity_brokenwall, I'm just wondering if it is a dns issue or a ip and dns issue08:11
brokenwalltell me what to type and look for08:12
roccity_brokenwall, if it is a dns issue you can use opendns for the dns server info08:12
brokenwalldon't think its dns08:12
ActionParsnipRoccity: its not dns. The interface just fails to get dhcp08:12
brokenwallcause i can tell it to use global dns and it will pull frm the router08:12
roccity_brokenwall, so do you get a ip but cant get webpages and that ?08:12
brokenwalli just can't get any ips at all using wireless and only sometimes using wired08:13
brokenwallwhen the wired gets a dhcp address it works fine08:13

ionuthow can i see my hardware components ?08:16
llutzichat: hd0 is the MBR (first sector, first hdd)08:16
roccity_ichat, before you click install on the installation there is a advanced button push this and I think that you can choose where to install grub08:16
ionutfor example in windows properties of my computer08:16
ActionParsnipZslashz: weird, that's all I got. I don't use icons much08:17
llutzichat: and even if devices are called sdaXY, grubs notation is (hd0,0) for 1st partition on 1st disk08:17
timfrostSPF: have you added libxml2-dev ?  That supplies the development libxml2 libraries08:17
ActionParsnip!find lshw08:17
ubottuFound: lshw, lshw-gtk08:17
SPFtimfrost: yes, I did08:17
ActionParsnip!info lshw-gtk | ionut08:17
ichatthing is it didn't install08:17
Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, ndiswrapper is usually *not* the best way to go for bradcom cards, and to use the broadcom drivers ( that are already on the CD ) you would just need to add /lib/firmware/b43/ to the squashfs image on the iso, which while somewhat involved is less so than ndiswrapper and also will take less space AND is likely to be more stable.08:17
ubottuionut: lshw-gtk (source: lshw): graphical information about hardware configuration. In component universe, is optional. Version 02.14-1 (karmic), package size 379 kB, installed size 1532 kB08:17
ActionParsnipIonut: the cli version would be: sudo lshw | less08:18
ionutActionParsnip: thx08:18
zslashzactionparsnip : no there isnt08:19
ActionParsnipIonut: lshw is a standard app, the gtk one will need installing08:19
ActionParsnipZslashz: isn't what?08:19
Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, You could also just put take the /lib/firmware/b43 from your hard drive and copy it into /lib/firmware in the live environment and run "sudo rmmod b43 && sudo modprobe b43"08:19
llutzichat: use live-cd to repair grub, try writing it to "/dev/sda1"08:19
brokenwallany idea how to fix the dhcp issue08:19
timfrostSPF: that doesn't appear in the lists in that pastebin (although libxml2 package does).  Which ubuntu release are you running?08:20
zslashzactionparsnip : i dont have create new launcher or new entry on my right click menu on desktop08:20
lsdlunawhere is the openoffice folder usually located in?08:20
ActionParsnipbrokenwall: i'd look in your routers logs to see if it recieves the dhcp request08:20
ActionParsnipZslashz: I know, you said earlier08:20
ActionParsnipNice gratitude from brokenwall eh08:21
zslashzactionparsnip : anyway to fix this???08:21
ActionParsnipZslashz: like I said. I don't know as I don't use icons all that much08:21
zslashzok thanks08:22
kemsiroanybody knows how can i find out all mac addresses of PC on LAN08:22
SPFtimfrost: 9.1008:22
ActionParsnipZslashz: you can use symlinks though08:22

kemsirothanks, i will try08:22
Jordan_Uichat, http://grub.enbug.org/Grub2LiveCdInstallGuide. But also just try changing the boot order in the BIOS.08:22
ActionParsnipKemsiro: there is rarp to go the other way08:23
ionutdoes anyone knows a good hmtl and css editor ?08:23
ActionParsnipIonut: gedit08:23
ichatthnx, ill just try again08:23
Jordan_Ukemsiro, ifconfig | grep HWaddr08:23
ubottuhtml is HyperText Markup Language, used to build web pages. WYSIWYG editors: KompoZer (was Nvu), Iceape Composer, Amaya - Development environments: Bluefish, Quanta+, Screem - For a howto on HTML coding, see: http://www.w3schools.com/08:24
lostinspace_46Jordan_U, I follow that. But I thought the live environment couldn't be written to.  I have always used ndiswrapper and such, because I followed the networking/wlan sticky08:24
timfrostSPF: double-check that you have installed libxml2-dev, then do a fresh configure (do a 'make clean' or 'make distclean' before re-running the configure)08:24
Jordan_Ukemsiro, Or if you want to extract just the the mac address, then "ifconfig | grep HWaddr | awk '{print $5}'"08:25
lostinspace_46Jordan_U, And I couldn't get wireless to work any other way08:25
timfrostSPF: it is possible that the configure is using saved data from previous runs08:25
ionutActionParsnip: another one,more advanced you know ?08:25
ActionParsnipLostinspace_46: you can, changes will be lost on reboot. You can even apt-get upgrade if you like08:25
SPFtimfrost: I get your point, but after cleaning it still complains about ctime_c08:26
ActionParsnipIonut: I know of none. I only knew the factoid08:26
Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, The Live environment keeps changes to the file system in RAM, so it's just like a normal system except the changes will be lost when you reboot ( and you are limited in how much you can write by your available RAM )08:26
ActionParsnipIonut: its just text so any text editor will do it08:26
mactimesCould someone, please, help me with audio input device issue in karmic?08:26
ActionParsnip!details | mactimes08:26
ubottumactimes: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."08:26
mactimesRephrasing:  I have no input from any audio devices in karmic.08:27
ActionParsnipMactimes: is the mic muted?08:28
mactimesActionParsnip, No.08:28
Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, Did you try installing b43-fwcutter while connected via ethernet ( it needs to download the firmware for legal reasons ) or downloading the firmware directly and just moving it to /lib/firmware/b43 ?08:28
ActionParsnipMactimes: then all I got is to run: lspci | grep -i audio ,and websearch the output to find guides08:29
mactimesActionParsnip, I've been browsing and googleing and it seems that the problem is related to one channel canceling the other one, but I'm no expert on that and all methods I've tried from web didn't solve it.  Now I have a clean install again to try to solve it if someone can help so I don't have any interference from prior tests.08:29
ActionParsnipMactimes: sudo lshw -C audio ,may also help08:29
ionutActionParsnip: yes but there are editors that make ur job easier (for example macromedia in windows) i don't want one like macromedia but one that can recognise tags and so on ..08:30
mactimesActionParsnip, Ok, I'll try.  Thank you.08:30
ActionParsnipMactimes: then you know as much as me08:30
ActionParsnipIonut: try a few, see which gives what you need (or close)08:30
theadminIs it somehow possible to allow a user to mount devices (that do not automount) without making him/her an admin?08:31
ActionParsnipMactimes: could see if there are bugs logged for your hardware. You could try switching to OSS08:31
mactimesActionParsnip, "sudo lshw -C audio" provided no output.  I'll pastebin the output of the other command line.08:31
mactimesActionParsnip, I tried OSS too, but no success from that either.08:32
ActionParsnipMactimes: try: sudo lshw -C sound ,then08:32
mactimesActionParsnip, That one worked.08:32
mactimesActionParsnip, I'll pastebin it.08:32
ActionParsnipTheadmin: add it in /etc/fstab and it will mount08:32
lostinspace_46ActionParsnip,  Jordan_U I type to slow to keep up..lol.  Umm why would b43 work in live env if it won't work in the O/S, and I pretty sure it won't. Had a hell of a time going wireless when I first got ubuntu.08:32
mactimesActionParsnip, Again, thank you for the support.08:32
ActionParsnipMactimes: I'm on my phone and web browsing is pretty painful08:33
theadminActionParsnip: O rly? Even if it's encrypted with TrueCrypt? I don't think that will work08:33
theadminActionParsnip: Guess i was a little rude just now, sorry08:33
timfrostSPF: OK.  I can't locate that function on my system, but a search indicates that it is in a version of the main libc library that is re-entrant (denoted by the _r suffix). Does the configure script offer an option to not use the re-entrant library?08:33
ActionParsnipTheadmin: you never added that info. Its cool, just chill :D08:33
Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, If you weren't connected to the internet when you installed b43-fwcutter it wouldn't have worked ( I know that sounds stupid, but broadcom won't allow Ubuntu to distribute their firmware so it has to be downloaded from broadcom's site )08:34
ActionParsnipTheadmin: I've not used encrypted filesystems. I don't wear a tinfoil hat08:34
theadminActionParsnip: hat?... huh08:35
ActionParsnipTheadmin: tinfoil hats stop the government reading your mind08:35

Jordan_Ulostinspace_46, The easiest way to do it is to install b43-fwcutter on your main machine, when it downloads and extracts the firmware from broadcom's site it will create two directories, /lib/firmware/b43 and /lib/firmware/b43-legacy, you can just copy those in the live Session or remaster the CD to add those directories.09:02

Cybert1nusI've moved my Ubuntu Server install from one partition to another. I have a seperate /boot partition. I've done this before (with the same install) and then it worked. Now it doesn't.

So it looks like my InitRD has lost the RAID drivers or something (I'm running on softraid level 1). Anybody any advice how 09:05

DaemonFCand their release notes are not even up yet, so who knows what they did? :P09:33
alankilastill, the poster has the wrong question. How can xorg devs release versions of xorg that don't support drivers that worked for some earlier release? HAven't they heard of backwards compatibility?09:33
hidensoftthiefy, that is player , i just need codec09:34
alankilaTHAT is the question. Was this question asked more often, people always had the option of using the old driver that worked.09:34

DavidSchlesanyone know of a way i can reinstall firefox without loosing bookmarks?09:34
llutzDavidSchles: just reinstall it, it won't touch personal settings like bookmarks09:34
DaemonFCalankila, Nvidia is usually ahead of X.org09:34
DavidSchlesllutz: must i remove it first then09:35
alankilaDaemonFC: true, because they apparently don't use xorg much :) they reimplement large parts of it in their driver09:35
llutzDavidSchles: sudo aptitude reinstall firefox09:35
DaemonFCsometimes you can even pull X out of git and your Nvidia card still runs. ATI is now 6 months behind X.org09:35
Jordan_Ualankila, Backwards compatibility is only important when the source isn't available. The Xorg ( and kernel ) devs just don't care about supporting proprietary drivers ( but this discussion should move to #ubuntu-offtopic )09:35
DaemonFCit's inexcusable09:35
alankilathat's why nvidia's stuff works and ATI's stuff doesn't, or every new version update always is broken with ATI.09:35

llutzjoel_: cat /proc/cpuinfo09:43
alankilathe problem with cpuinfo is that it lists the currently prevailing CPU speed -- if you have dynamic scaling, the values can be, like, whatever.09:44

joel_llutz, i dont rly know how a sata plug looks like.. the processor is a 1250 mhz amd athlon09:46
alankilajoel_: well, you should definitely open the PC up and study the innards for a while. You'll have to know this stuff if you think the answer to the question is relevant anyway09:47
llutzjoel_: get the model of your mainboard, feed google with it, if you don't own a manual09:47
alankilathe sata ports are often arranged in a row, at the bottom right edge of the motherboard, they are small rectangular slots which a small flat cable can be inserted, it will be engulfed by plastic & it's keyed so the cable can only go in one way09:49
thiefyjoel. i'm sure google can also find you a picture of a sata port too.09:50
thiefygoogle knows everything.09:50
thiefyhence my previous answer of just looking inside the case after ye know what it looks like.09:50
alankilaI'd start by opening the case, it's better to know what to look for first, and if you are systematic you'll have a passing familiarity with all the stuff inside at least one PC then. But mobo manuals are the best because they generally list all things of interest, albeit schematically, so you do have to open the case anyway09:51

alankilaeh, apt-get --reinstall install cups09:53
thiefyisn't it in yer trash?09:53
shashankalankila, I am on it!09:53

alankilathe dpkg -S ought to tell you all packages installed according to the dpkg database which have supplied a file with /usr/lib/cups as part of the path... Hopefully09:54
shashankalankila, the first command you gave does not work09:55
shashankalankila, that is : apt-get --reinstall cups09:55

shashankalankila, that command worked.09:59
alankilashashank: "apt-get install" is for installing packages, --reinstall is for forcing an install even though the package already is installed according to database. What more do you want?09:59
shashankalankila, but all my attempts to reinstall the cups are in vain.09:59
shashankalankila, sorry about that, I will try once more09:59
alankilashashank: well, right, the dpkg -S should be a complete list of all files that dpkg thinks should be under /usr/lib/cups & all the package names that supplied these files, so you know which packages to attempt to reinstall10:00

shashankalankila, Here is my problem in detail: 1. the dpkg command you gave worked. 2. What did not work is this command: sudo apt-get --reinstall cups10:01
alankilashashank: you failed to notice the correct command I gave on the next line.10:02
shashankalakila, Wait I will read again.10:02
alankilashashank: it's annoying, I always forget to type --reinstall install because to my mind I already told apt-get to install something, I somehow always omit the second parameter.10:03
dsandy82yea, I went through the monitors menu's can't find anything useful there, do a factory reset, nothing, and ensure I'm set to use the HDMI connection.  Funny thing is in my windows install, the desktop is too big for the monitor at the same resolution10:03

alankilayou don't have to type "man 'administratie tools' anacron". Just "man anacron". Any friendly system will scan what is available and show what it finds, if mulstiple matches then you pick what you want to see, and the numeric shortcuts could still work if you want them.10:12

bloodskii've got an hfs+ journal fs, and i need to get the userdata like pictures etc, but it says it cannot access the dirs (some dirs (non-personal) i can get access to) and if i try to sudo chmod 777 the user dir, it says it's only mounted as read-only10:22
bloodskihow can i access this dir?10:22
alankilabloodski: sudo ls works?10:22
bloodskisudo ls? alankila?10:23
alankilabloodski: if it's a local permissions issue, sudoing the filesystem access commands make them work, no matter what permissions.10:23

=== katie11 is now known as [k]a[tie]

sinthetekJordan_U editing literal strings and being able to see clear association between device/partition and those literal strings seems a lot simpler than whatever grub2 seems to do10:25

bloodskisure, i'll plug it in to another box and see, not hoping for anything really tho10:26
Jordan_Usinthetek, Except the whole part about comments-that-aren't-really-comments and some areas that you can edit but will be overwritten without asking when you run update-grub and others that won't10:26
Jordan_Usinthetek, If you want to manually edit the menu entries for your other OS's then copy them from your grub.cfg into /etc/grub.d/40_custom then remove or "sudo chmod -x" /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober. Then you can edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom however you want.10:28

Lonniebizllutz, I need to do it with rsync. The thing I don't understand is, when I back them up, I back them up to a sub folder of a home directory, but when I restore, it is not putting them back where they were (syncing), instead it is copying to another location.10:34

HakishoHi, has someone got a working sshfs mount through pam_mount (with password or keyfile) in 9.10?10:35
dsandy82llutz, perhaps not...to be honest it was like this and worse when i had the open source ati driver in place...plus I had a big "AMG unsupported hardware" watermark in the bottom10:35
Lonniebizllutz, I think I'm figuring out why right now. Thanks.10:35
zslashzhow do i run a .lnl file on ubuntu?10:35
=== Visual`_ is now known as Visual`
llutzLonniebiz: missing / at pathes10:36
stdiseasezslashz, you have got to figure out what applications works on .lnl files first, and then install it10:36
lvlintthank you stdisease10:36
llutzdsandy82: i never had any ATI but that sounds .... odd10:36
Lonniebizllutz, elaborate just a little. What do you mean by at paths, and what does the / you typed represent? Sorry you have to be so explicit with me.10:37
zslashzstdisease : i know the files and it targets a server over vpn10:37
zslashzstdisease : but i cant get it to work as it does under windows10:37
atmy wine doesnt recognize the sound card ... any help ?10:37
stdiseaseLonniebiz, '/' are directory separators on Unix, much like \ on windows10:38
dsandy82llutz isn't it just?  well lesson learned, black borders and image taking up too much or not enough screen with an HDMI connection might  = scaling options.10:38
llutzLonniebiz: if you type "rsync -aux path/ /target/" it will create contents of "path" but not "path". if you use "rsync -aux path target/" it will copy "path/withallcontents"10:38
dsandy82goodnight, and think you for the help10:38

Nastyahi everyone.Where can I disable acpi in ubuntu 9.10?10:39
zslashzstdisease : its a brokarage program running on top of an oracle platform ..i installed it using crossoverlinux10:39
Lonniebizllutz, I did read that before in the man page; thanks for reminding me. I think I'll accomplish what I'm trying with your reminder.10:39
llutzLonniebiz: the trailing / makes a big difference10:39
atshazbotmcnasty, i have Wine application on my ubuntu and its doesnt recognize the sound card10:39
stdiseasezslashz, and it's not functioning correctly with crossover/wine ?10:39
indusalso, generally red or blue in color flat looking ports , say 2 mm thick and 8 mm wide10:39

indusNastya, they didnt move anything, grub2 is all new now, so menu.lst now appears ujnder /boot/grub/grub.cfg10:49

remoteCTRL1tunji: ok you got two ways, either you install envy and have it install the driver automatically or you download the driver from nvidia.com and isntall it yourself, its not that hard actually...10:59

skuzzel1or the charm rather11:16

indusremoteCTRL1, i have no problems ,but lets say grub cant find my boot stage11:17
remoteCTRL1tunji: for my taste that looks like stuck... what happens if you execute exactly the same command again?11:17
indususer23, hi is this ubuntu 8.04?11:17
user23indus, ubuntu 9.0411:18
remoteCTRL1indus: like stage 1.5? in that case thats probably because its not there, just execute grub-install and then update-grub, that should fix it11:18
tunjiremoteCTRL1: same output11:18
remoteCTRL1tunji: that is really odd...11:19
indusremoteCTRL1, are you telling me,grub 2 doesnt suffer from the same problems grub 1 had? like erro 15 or error 22 etc11:19

tunjiremoteCTRL1: thanks for all your help11:20
indususer23, did you compile the via drivers?11:20
remoteCTRL1tunji: the problem is that your system is "hanging" in some undefined package status, this has as a consequence that not only the graphics driver is not working but als that you cannot install/uninstall anything else...11:20
user23indus, compile ?11:20
indususer23, ok do 1 thing, check errors in /var/log/Xorg.log11:20
remoteCTRL1tunji: if it is a fresh isntall i suggest you just do it once more...11:20
indususer23, can you paste it , type cat /var/log/Xorg.log11:21
remoteCTRL1tunji: np:)11:21
tunjiremoteCTRL1: yeah, it was a frsh install... that i then mucked up!11:21

Cybert1nushow can I add a module to my initrd? I've added them in /etc/modules and ran update-initramfs -k all -u, but they still aren't loaded during boot. What am I doing wrong?11:35
avelldirollHello, I remember a website that listed the changelog of the last added packages to the repositories, but I can't find it again ... does this ring a bell to anybody ?11:36
thwappAnyone about who might be willing to help figure out a sound issue?11:36
erUSULCybert1nus: /etc/initramfs-tools/modules11:36
tasslehoffhow do I change my username? guess I want to change username, name of home folder accordingly, and all file permissions11:36
erUSULtasslehoff: man usermod11:36
stdiseasethwapp, just describe and maaybe someone might be able to assist11:37
Cybert1nuserUSUL: ah thnx, that looks like the correct file indeed. Gonna add them there :)11:37
stdiseasealthough mayybe is more like it...11:37
stdisease*maaybe even..11:37
Cybert1nuserUSUL: but Busybox doesn't have an editor, so I need to reboot to a live CD first11:37
bloodskiis there anyway of making a mounte filesystem that's read-only, have read/write permissions? tried forcing it in fstab, but didnt help11:37
erUSULbloodski: if the driver does not support rw operaton you can not change that11:38
tasslehofferUSUL: yeah. this changes only username, so I guess the rest would have to be done manually. thanks.11:38
user23indus, the url: http://paste.ubuntu.com/379001/11:38
erUSULtasslehoff: true. but you only have to move a directory. easy11:38
erUSULtasslehoff: sudo mv /home/olduser /home/newusername11:39
stdiseasetasslehoff, or supply the --home/-d options to usermod11:39
erUSULtasslehoff: i would do all of this in recovery mode11:39
stdisease--home -m11:39
tasslehofferUSUL: yeah, and I don't need to change permissions, since my uid is the same?11:40
ben_qhello, which program can I use to create an iso of a video dvd? diskdump does not remove the copy-protection and the iso is thus not playable on a mediatank :(11:40
stdiseasetasslehoff, rtfm really, 'man usermod'11:40
thwappLOL..  Ok..  I'm fairly new to ubuntu...  It took me quite a bit to get the system setup..  running an EVGA 780i SLI Mainboard with an Intel Q9400 proc, 4 gb ram, and an nVidia GeForce GTX 260 Maxcore.  I've somehow managed to get the drivers for everything but the on-board sound card installed and was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.  Ubuntu autodetected something, but I have no idea what it's done, or how to even look i11:40
obscurant1styesterday i asked here which is the file to be edited for changing the boot menu in grub211:40
obscurant1stwell it is /boot/grub/grub.cfg11:40
erUSULtasslehoff: that's my thinking yes11:40
stdiseasetasslehoff, your uid is supposed to stay the same unless you change it11:40
tasslehoffstdisease: yep :)11:40
tasslehoffstdisease: I know. I just wondered if file permissions are okay with the username changing11:41
erUSULben_q: dvd95?11:41
ben_qdvd95 seems to make the iso's smaller11:41
EvilDennisRtasslehoff: file permissions should be fine if the username is changing and not the uid11:41
stdiseasetasslehoff, ah totally, as you seem to have figured out11:41
tasslehoffstdisease: yep :)11:42
tasslehoffstdisease: EvilDennisR: erUSUL: thanks :)11:42
indususer23, nice log file :) give me some time to read it11:43
=== lordmortis|away is now known as lordmortis
thwappWell, either I didn't describe something right, or nobody can help me..  either way, I'm giving up for the night and crashing..  night...11:44
indususer23, how did you install the driver11:44
LonniebizUsing rsync, lets say I back up drives c and d on a windows machine, to and ssh linux server. After this, I decide that I want to restore drive c and d so that they are in sync with the backup. How do I specify the "root" destination with a cygwin path?11:45
indususer23, also paste for me /var/log/Xorg.0.log11:45
Cybert1nuserUSUL: I added the needed modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and ran update-initramfs -k all -u. The modules still aren't loaded :(11:47
erUSULCybert1nus: then i dunno ...11:47
indususer23, hello?11:48
Cybert1nuserUSUL: ok. Thnx though :)11:48
* indus sigh11:48
LonniebizWould i just be /cygdrive/ alone? I don't want to screw anything up.11:48
Cybert1nusanybody else knows how to add a module to an existing initrd?11:48
erUSULCybert1nus: np11:48
indusrww, hey11:48
user23indus, sudo ./vinstall.   i think i just need working drivers, ive searched the net, many have problems with via's cards11:48
EvilDennisRLonniebiz: if /cygdrive/ has the same contents as c: -- then yeah11:49
EvilDennisRLonniebiz: On your windoze machine, rsync -avz linux:/path/to/c/ /cygdrive/11:50
LonniebizEvilDennisR: No, C would be /cygdrive/C11:50
jiohdianyone know how to find screensaver for UNR?11:50
EvilDennisRLonniebiz: sure11:50
