kierenGood to have someone on my team :D00:13

grobda24scribawf, you may have a backup list file in /boot/grub if ya lucky00:17
Typos_Kingpete__:   still isn't getting detected?00:17

rajyou know what really sucvks besides puleaudio these days... NVIDIA stopped supporting non SSE chipsets so anything older than P4 / AMD semp wont work at all with nvidia drivers.. i have an old amd 1300mhz computer i use as a media server/center connected to my 37 inch tv that only runs good with linux mint 5. because anything newer breaks my graphics. i tried everything with no luck. i guess nvidia really hates old computers. dont get m00:18
raj<raj> e wrong i have a good GFX card on it to run nice on the tv. but nothing after ubuntu 8.04 works nicely on that machine. i triedto compile older nvidia with no luck. :S00:18
DBeetsKieren: aparently we need to install libdvdcss00:18
pdg1willwh, I'm trying to get files from computer A on my network to computer B... setting up vsftpd isn't as easy as i thought.00:18
pete__Typos_King, no - would having ndiswrapper or bcmwl-kernel* installed make a difference???00:18
Typos_Kingdumbass... can't say... might be the libflashplayer.so version00:18
kierenI have done00:18
scribawfgrobda24: and then what I do with that list?00:18
grobda24scribawf, if you check it's fairly recent & has win entry in there then replace the menu.lst (I think it's called?). Make a backup of that file as well before you replace it.00:19
=== manuel_ is now known as manuel__
Gstarshould you be using anything older than a p4 /sempron other than telling the time00:19
kierenWell, libdvdcss200:19
scribawfgrobda24:  thank you I suspected that would be the approach, but needed some coaching00:19
Gstaryeah use them as servers or to run legacy stuff but dont expect to run the latest00:19
grobda24scribawf, np :)00:19
daroluraj: ATI cards are worst, they stopped supporting a lot of cards since early 09; I also have an old computer to watch movies/etc, the best option is to stick with 8.04 :(00:20
pete__Typos_King, would those files work on all broadcom adapters? i see openwrt has a bunch00:20
odyiAnyone notice an update that now make gnome-terminal open at / instead of ~?00:20
DBeetsI'm reading this: http://wiki.videolan.org/Common_Problems00:20
Gstarif you got new hardware why upgrade the os makes now sense00:21
Typos_Kingpete__   makes me wonder...  yes, the files are just firmware, 9.1 already includes drivers for broadcom chipsets, they just don't include the drivers.... I wonder firstly why isn't it showing up in lspci at all, it'd show at worst as Unknown00:21
Gstarold hardware*00:21
Typos_Kingpete__ which makes me wonder if you have a broadcomm chipset device at all :{00:21
pete__Typos_King, i checked out hp's site - says broadcom..if it was an intel - im sure ubuntu would pick it up..right? any other suggestions?00:22
Gstarbroadcom works fine in 8.0400:22
Typos_Kingpete__  so, you don't know, all you know is waht 'they' say00:22
Typos_Kingpete__  either way, it'd show in lspci, do a lspci and paste it in a pastebin00:23
kierenDBeets: did you say you can play a dvd over nfs?00:23
pete__Typos_King, ok one sec00:23
DBeetsKieren: yeah, it's a ripped DVD.00:24
pete__Typos_King, http://pastebin.com/R889raX000:24
DBeetsare you getting this? ES_OUT_RESET_PCR called00:24
raj<darolu> YEAH i know it really frustrates me.. why do they do that? older drivers shouldnt break with newer kernels some people still use OLDER hardware... linux community should do this.. they are turning like microsoft where older hardware is no longer effecient supported00:24
YounderIs there somthing that can thunk onto the X messaging system and recorp/play windows inpu alla what expect does to console based apps?00:24
kierenOh, okay00:25
Gstarno raj linux isnt thats the thing if one distro is doing that you can always use another00:25
kierenNo, not getting that00:25
Gstaror stick to LTS00:25
daroluraj: Yeah I know, they are interested in selling newer cards only; anyways I use ATI cards and the open source driver is not bad, doesn't beat the propietary one though00:25
Typos_Kingpete__  I don't see it :{00:26
Typos_Kingpete__  how do you know you have one hehe00:26
pete__Typos_King, there's a wireless button on the outer casing00:26
pete__Typos_King, all of these models come with it00:26
DBeetsKieren: well my issue seems to be with my drive. VLC will read the disk title then abandon ship.00:26
daroluraj: my card is not even THAT old, is ~4 years old only and I need to use 2.6.24 or previous kernel00:26
pete__Typos_King, I was told it worked with Vista00:26
Gstarthing is you have the windows mentality upgrade .. upgrade00:26
rajGstar i am stuck on 8.04 on my older machine because nvidia stop suporting non SSE chipsets older than p4/amd semp thast why im mad. i trie dto compile older drivers 96.xx with no luck under the new kernel00:26
DBeetsKieren: I gotta go afk for a bit00:27
kierenThat's okay00:27
Gstarand whats wrong with 8.0400:27
kierenI think I'm going to just leave it and go to be00:27
kierenThanks for the help00:27
kierenI'll pop back tomorrow to share what I find00:27
Gstartbh when 8.04 gets discontiuned Im switching to debian or fedora00:27
rajdarolu i feel you my card is an nvidia 9500 gt but running on an amd 1300 so i guess im out of luck. im stuck with ubuntu 8.04/linu xmint 500:27
pete__Typos_King, any last suggestions?00:28
RandomCakeHi all, I'm running ubuntu 9.04 on a SheevaPlug and the internal storage is only 512MB, and I'd like to be able to have some packages installed to the internal storage, and some be installed onto a USB flash drive, is there any way I can do that?00:28
Gstarraj your missing the point of LTS00:28
rajGstar nothing is wrong with 8.04 but i have to manually compile all the new software that no longer have .deb for ubuntu 8.0400:29
Gstarah ok00:29
LinuxGuy2009Does there happen to be any backports of cheese, for use in 8.04 LTS so that I can lower my webcam capture resolution lower to get better frame rates?00:29
Typos_Kingpete__     get a live-cd with utilities to probe for a full hardware list.... also.... have you checked in 'dmesg' log yet?   does it show any errors or loads for a Network adapter?00:29
LinuxGuy2009The regular repo package doesnt have that feature.00:29
grobda24LinuxGuy2009, you could try the package search web page00:30
Gstarraj but your going aqgainst the LTS by installing newer versions against the repos00:30

teageGstar; exactly.00:41
DebianUTAnyone tried Lucid alpha3 in vmware?00:41
alex__is the kernel located in /boot?00:41

Typos_Kingx_:   iirc   pidgin also does irc00:41

jolarenTypos_King, Hehe, it's not connected wrong01:20
Viking667the 2.6.28 worked fine with 9.04, as you'd expect. But when I'm trying to use it with 9.10, it simply stops dead, and I've no idea why.01:21

Gstarviking a few tips stick with long term supported distos and dont do upgrades only fresh installs01:23
Typos_Kingjolaren..... it might be the acpi module... you can turn it off I gather, if it gives you hassle, not sure how that'd work for the poweroff feature.... but it gave me issues in 9.1 and I booted with acpi=off argument, and with that, it worked fine, just needed to power down using the power button :)01:23

Typos_Kingkaji   ^01:29
Viking667then export PATH01:29
kajiexport path?01:29
Gstarprobably because 2.6.28 is not a valid ip internally or externally01:29
Typos_Kingkaji:   you can add that line in your ~/.bashrc file01:29
Viking667Gstar: ....? what?01:29
NitsugaViking667, kaji, you can export and set a variable at the same time with export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/other/folder01:29

Viking667Gstar: For mandrake, I believe the behaviour was the same. I haven't run it since 10.2 thoug, when they changed over to Mandriva01:40
Typos_Kingkaji:    I'd say the answer is, add it to ~/.profile   that gets executed upon loading, as airtonix pointed out, yes I do have a console open hehee, so01:40

Gstargames are programmed for windows01:47
Viking667Gstar: hey dude. He's asking how to disable two mouse buttons.01:47
greg__Hey, Im having trouble with my webcam... it does not work. can someone help me?01:47
Viking667Nothing to do with games, windows or otherwise.01:47
rajGstar what the hell? the guy is asking how to make his mouse's 7th button not do anything.01:47
Gstarthe thing with wine your gonna need higher spec than to run on windows01:47
anarki2004greg__: did ubuntu find any drivers for  your webcam?01:47
GeminiDominoI mean, I guess in the worst case I could edit the xorg.conf and disable the two buttons entirely, but if I could remap them instead that would be better01:48
greg__nope anarki200401:48
Gstartrust me windows for gaming I hate the os01:48
anarki2004greg__: have you looked around for drivers that support your model webcam?01:48
greg__ya i cant find01:48
Gstarbut I keep it for gamng01:48
Viking667GeminiDomino: Personally, I'd suggest either switching sides with the mouse, (i.e. mouse on left hand side) or disable in xorg.conf01:48
rajGeminiDomino go to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ManyButtonsMouseHowto01:48

Nitsugajoeblob, are you using scp/sftp/ssh for transfer?01:57
Viking667darn. I've just had a goldfish moment.01:57
joeblobsomeone mentioned that since I'm using it as a gateway for WAN that it's limited to the bus speed of 10mbps01:57
Viking667ah yes.01:58
dsnydersViking667, a goldfish moment???01:58
joeblobdo I need to bridge two WRT54Gs together in WDS to get 54mbps on LAN?01:58

airtonixViking667, we dont support goldfish here.01:58
Viking667dsnyders: yeah. I thought of something to tell greg. three seconds later, I'd forgotten what it was.01:58
joeblobbecause virtualgirl is naughty01:58
airtonixbigtom21485, google : winehq virtualgirl01:58
Nitsugajoeblob, that may be the problem. Maybe the source or dest. pc are using too much cpu and tthe scp process can't encrypt and decrypt at an acceptable rate01:58
greg__Viking667 - any ideas for me?01:58
dsnydersViking667, Ah!01:58
Viking667greg__: type in:   lsmod >> /tmp/lsmodfile01:59
ki4cgpjoeblob, I'm using my dsl router as a gateway of course, but I get about 10-11MBytes/sec inside my LAN01:59
VTSkepticWhat the hell is virtual girl?01:59
joeblobNitsuga: it happens with Samba transfers as well... I think it's because I'm using my WRT54g as a WAN gateway01:59

greg__ok Viking66701:59

joeblobit is using WEP... but will it really make the difference between 8mbps and 54mbps?02:00
AHelper2Anyone know the devel package of alsa is? (alsa/asoundlib.h)02:00
Viking667joeblob: my suggestion? Don't use WEP. Use WPA/2 instead (or whatever it's called)02:01
Nitsugajoeblob, not if you use AES encryption.02:01
* AHelper2 uses no encryption because neighbors like it that way XD02:01
anarki2004bigtom21485: i don't know any reason why wine couldn't support VirtuaGirlHD, but I don't know how to make it do said action02:01
Nitsugajoeblob, use WPA/2 with AEES encryption to get 1) better security (in fact WEP can be cracked in 10 seconds) and better speed02:01
kajiHow do I make my touchscreen initialize in the loginscreen? I have it working AFTER login just fine, nextstep is to get it working at boot02:01

Viking667uhm, that bit I don't know. I rather hate pulseaudio myself, but can't find a way of removing it without wrecking other things too.02:06
Viking667yeah. PulseAudio is a sound driver that's supposed to take over from the ALSA project. I don't find it does a stellar job.02:07
Viking667I don't frankly know what you can do.02:07
Kardosjoin the pulseaudio dev and fix the problems02:07
NitsugaViking667, Pulseaudio is great02:07
Kardosi always hear people saying how much pulse audio sucks, but nobody ever specific as to what the bug is that needs fixing02:08

NitsugaViking667, Also Pulse solves the remote desktop sound problems02:09

Kardosinteresting problem though, bug report??? :)02:10
rajKardos: its a known bug is you serach pulseaudio flash and media player problem not allowing more than 1 source02:10
Nitsugakaji, if you are using a command you can make a script in /etc/init.d/ and use update-rc.d (see the man) to make it start with the system02:10
Kardosso its a flash problem?02:11

viejotrenhi, i'm trying to install ubuntu using an usb flash drive, in fact, i used unetbootin to put correctly the iso file inside my usb, the problem is when i'm in the installation process that is always requesting for a cd drive, so, my question is, how the installation would know that it has to look for the necessary files in my usb instead of a cd drive?02:34
airtonixSerraphyn, then your have two options, one of which is best discussed in #winehq02:34
ClaptrapI'm attempting to install Ubuntu 9.10 via Unetbootin on a LiveCD.02:34
Nitsugakaji, mm that sould work02:34

SerraphynAnyone ever get sharepoint with d-links working with ubuntu? I have a usb hdd on it that I share with windows machines on network but would like to acess it on linux.02:34

AHelper2YAY! I fixed my sound issues in a record 4 hours! That beat my personal best of 4 months!02:35
kajiNitsuga: Not that I know of. It runs at login as a startup program so I don't see anything that should prevent it from running at boot02:35
Serraphynairtonix: boasting about what? I tried it in windows and linux, no VM software I have found mkaes decent 3d rendering yet.02:35
ClaptrapI -can- see GRUB if I boot from the OTHER HDD in the PC, but then it doesn't present Ubuntu as a boot optioon.02:35
ClaptrapI am flummoxed, frustrated, and generally pissed off.02:35
IdleOneClaptrap: then take a step back, relax and come back to it later :)02:36

ClaptrapOn the same HDD as Ubuntu.02:37
IdleOneClaptrap: see !dualboot IIRC there is a section on Vista/Ubuntu02:37
viejotreni don't know if win7 is always trying toi be the first os, vista does that02:38
ClaptrapI've looked at quite a few different dualbooting things, too.02:38
viejotrenclaptrap, do you have 2 hdds?02:38
brjannClaptrap, what's on the second HD? that does show grub with no ubuntu?02:38
IdleOne!dualboot | Claptrap how about this one?02:38
ubottuClaptrap how about this one?: Dual boot instructions: x86/AMD64: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBootHowTo - MACs: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro https://help.ubuntu.com/community/YabootConfigurationForMacintoshPowerPCsDualBoot02:38
IdleOnethe first link02:38
SerraphynWhats the apt-get command to remove packages you installed?02:38
Nitsugakaji, this is why i hate perl. It's unreadable! it's everything like \n$o\t";# . Anyway I undestand it and it needs to run as your own user in your own screen. Making it work in gdm will be tricky.02:38
ClaptrapYeah, I have two HDDs. The second one is just storage.02:39
ClaptrapIt has some Vista remnants on it.02:39
viejotrenclaptrpa: did you installed ubuntu in the first one?02:39
brjannClaptrap, i agree with viejotren, sounds like you installed grub on the wrong drive02:39
ClaptrapLemme look on that link02:39
kajiNitsuga: That sounds distressingly like something far out of my expertise02:39
ClaptrapYeah, I've looked at that page before.02:40
vlad003Serraphyn: sudo apt-get purge or sudo apt-get remove02:40
IdleOneClaptrap:  I have to agree with viejotren also02:40
ClaptrapThat sounds... ridiculously simple.02:40
Serraphynvlad003: thanks02:40
brjannClaptrap, try reading through this: the problem is essentially the same. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows02:40
ClaptrapRead that.02:40
ClaptrapThat has come up at02:40
tliebeckgvfsd is only used for virtual filesystems correct...i.e. killing it should not result in issues with permanently mounted fs'es?02:40
Claptrapthe top of every Google I've done so far.02:40
Nitsugakaji, in other words only the current working user can run it. So it won't work if it is run before gdm.02:41
brjannClaptrap, and you went through it?02:41
tliebeckI had a situation where my / and /home FSes went read-only.02:42
ClaptrapLemme take another look, remember what specifically I tried.02:42
Nitsugakaji, removew it from /etc/rc.local to avoid trouble02:42
ClaptrapI tried theeeeee02:42
kajiNitsuga:  that's ok, not a huge deal ti twiddle the nipple slightly to select alogin name is gonna be a huge deal. *hates nipplemice*02:42
viejotrenclaptrap, I will tell you what i did when i was in your situation02:42
Claptrapsudo grub-install thingy.02:42
Nitsugakaji, I don't know a way to run something as gdm process. Sorry :(02:42
Nitsugakaji, if you don't mind about it you can set an autologin02:42
Dr_Willisautologins are handy :)02:43
tliebeckoh well, one way to find out...testing bye all.02:43
viejotrenclaptrpa: if you can't  boot inside the installation process again02:43
MackWhat is the channel for php development?02:43
Mackits not #php :/02:43
ClaptrapWell, I imagine you're right. I've actually been thinking about trying exactly what you're saying, but I gather I have to defrag the second HDD, since it shows that I can't resize the partition.02:43
kajiNitsuga:  it's ok, as I said, won't be a huge imposition to twiddle the nipple a bit at login. thanks though!02:43
ClaptrapAnd that's generally a longish process. :<02:43
Claptrap...I read twiddle the nipple.02:44
brjannClaptrap, whoa whoa, why resizing partitions?02:44
viejotrenclaptrap: use a live cd based distros02:44
viejotrenmount your partition02:44
viejotrenand then do:02:44
ClaptrapThe second HDD is fully partitioned for the entire space02:44
Mackjoin #php502:44
viejotrenchroot /media/tourpart02:44
viejotrengrub-install hd002:44
ClaptrapThat looks frightening. Wassat do?02:45
Dr_Willisfrighting? grub installs to hd002:45
Dr_Willisin theory :)02:45
brjannClaptrap, there's nothing wrong with that. grub lives in the master boot record (MBR) of the drive. it just sounds like you have the windows bootloader in the MBR you want grub in.02:45
ClaptrapYea, I've been trying to get around that, to.02:46
ClaptrapI tried EasyBCD02:46
ClaptrapTo no real avail.02:46
viejotrenclaptrap, in fact if the installation of grub was succesfully the problem is in the menu.lst file02:46
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  if you have 2 seperate hard drives one for each OS . You could put grub on the MBR of the linux drive amd tell the pc/bios to boot that 2nd hd. No touching of the windows drive.02:46
ClaptrapMenu.lst is for original grub, right?02:46
viejotrenyou only needs to redirect to the right hdd02:46
Dr_Willismenu.lst for grub1  - grub2 (grub-pc) uses  a different config setup. it has a grub.cfg  i belive.02:47
ClaptrapYeah. My LiveCD has grub202:47
viejotrenyes, i think you atre right, i'm still using grub02:47
ClaptrapSo, I guess what I really need to do02:47
Claptrapto simplify all this02:47
ClaptrapIs to get Ubuntu installed on the HDD that DOES see grub, yes?02:48
kaiser10123hey can someone help me get my msi wind u120 see my webcam02:48
brjannClaptrap, that would be a bit overkill I think. :)02:48
ClaptrapWell, not really, at this point. I've already deleted and reinstalled it about ten times.02:49
ClaptrapIt is currently not installed. :p02:49
ClaptrapHell, I couldn't even manage to get Wubi working.02:49
kaiser10123i am using wubi now02:49
ClaptrapI have no idea what wrong there.02:50
brjannClaptrap, if your OS drive is /dev/sda, and your storage drive is /dev/sdb, and your bios is set to boot from the OS drive, all you should have to do is sudo grub-install /dev/sda02:50
ClaptrapI think I tried that02:50
ClaptrapAnd it didn't help02:50
ClaptrapThat looks familiar.02:50
nirelhi guys.02:50
viejotrenclaptrap, when you boot the pc, and choose ubuntu, what is the message?02:50
ClaptrapI did this02:51
Claptrapsudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/0d104aff-ec8c-44c8-b811-92b993823444 /dev/sda02:51
ClaptrapThere's no option for Ubuntu.02:51
ClaptrapIt never shows up.02:51
viejotrenso, grub never found it02:51
ClaptrapEither in Windows Boot Manager or GRUB when I booted from the second HDD02:51
brjannClaptrap, hm. have you tried holding down shift while it's booting? if grub is installed, that will force the menu to display02:51
ClaptrapYeah, I tried that on the main HDD. No go.02:52
brjannClaptrap, maybe it's there but it can't see ubuntu, so it just boots windows.02:52
brjannClaptrap, wow. :)02:52
ClaptrapThe good side of not being an idiot is that I'm not an idiot.02:52
ClaptrapThe bad side is that when I come up with a problem02:52
brjannClaptrap, how about sudo update-grub2?02:52
ClaptrapIt's usually REALLY fun.02:52
brjannI know how you feel.02:53
ClaptrapNow that, I never tried. Will that work from a LiveCD?02:53
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  is linux on  the 2nd and Just on the 2nd hd? ie: windows soley on the first hd. and linux totally on the 2nd hd?02:53
bitbaudhi anyone know how i can make a usb stick windows install drive from within linux?02:53
brjannClaptrap, perhaps? You might have to point it at the right drive. let me look02:53
ClaptrapNo, I've not been able to install Linux on the second HDD. Ubuntu never gives me the option, and Windows Partition Manager won't let me shrink the second HDD partition.02:53
Dr_Willisbitbaud:  thers guides online bout making a windows install usb stick. Ive no idea what tools they use. Or ask in #windows theymay know.02:53
brand0nanyone ever use the ps3 eye webcam in ubuntu?02:53
brand0ni can get the video working fine, but the sound seems to be a bit hard02:54
brand0nit shows up in the sound preferences as an input02:54
brand0nbut i cant seem to get it working02:54
brjannClaptrap, yes, it should work from inside a livecd.02:54
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  I alwyas defrag/scandisk and resize windows partitins from WITHIN windows - vista and higher has that feature.02:54
ClaptrapYeah, defrag was what I figured I needed to do, and yes, all my partitioning has been in Windows.02:55
brjannClaptrap, aiee, really?02:55
ipandahow can i set ctrl+- to make an ― ?02:55
ClaptrapI was hoping to avoid trying a degrag, since those are never fast.02:55
brjannhow did you set your linux partitions to be... linux?02:55
ClaptrapI shrunk the main Windows partition on the primary HDD and Ubuntu took care of that.02:55
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  so in windows. i resize and leave a lot of the 2nd hd Unallocated. and tell the installer to use the unallocated space. If i want to be fancy. I infact Unplug the windows HD. so theres Just the 2nd hd. that way Linux and grub both totally go on the 2nd hd.02:55
ClaptrapOr, I think it did, anyway.02:56
brjannClaptrap, oh, okay. Sorry, i thought you meant you'd created your ubuntu partitions from in windows. :)02:56
Dr_WillisI find things work out much nicer if i keep linux and wndows totally seperate like that.02:56
ClaptrapI know that Windows sees ext4 in partition manager afterwards.02:56
ClaptrapBut, since I've not actually seen the inside of my Ubuntu install yet... :p02:56
ruconsesome guys know how to hace the password of .ods file?02:57
ClaptrapAnd yeah, Dr_Willis, that's what I want to do.02:57
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  id almost be tempted to tell you to  remove the old install. and try to get windows all on one hd and linux on the 2nd hd..  via whatere means nesscary02:57
ClaptrapBut Partition Manager tells me there's zero space available to srhink by.02:57
ClaptrapThe old install IS gone. :p02:57
=== Guest11795 is now known as isp
ClaptrapI got frustrated and deleted the whole Linux partition and reattached it to Windows02:58
Claptrap'cause I figured Wubi was a sure thing.02:58
ClaptrapTurned out not to be.02:58
inertialI'm running 9.04 right now... and I have the option to upgrade to 9.10. I thought you couldn't upgrade between .04 and .10 releases??02:58
inertialif I upgrade to 9.10, will I be able to upgrade to 10.04 when it is released?02:58
kraetzjavmware seems to have evolved since i used it last. i wanna run windws 7 as a vm in ubuntu, what do i need?02:58
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  i hate wubi. SO i never use it. Best bet is play with a live cd/gparted and windows partion tool and some how just dedicate the whole 2nd hd to linux. (set it to unallocated, and unplug the windows hd, and restart the installer)  I think.02:59
zetheroowhat does adding this option, nomodeset, do when added to the grub boot?02:59
Dr_Willisinertial:  common FAQ. and the answer is Yes.02:59
ClaptrapYeah, I just need to defrag it, I guess.02:59

brjannClaptrap, sorry I couldn't help out :)02:59
nullp0interhow can i remove everything up to and including 'impression.php?' in a text file for each line?03:00
Dr_WillisClaptrap:  i always resize in windows. So  thats a given to do befor i try it. In fact i think the windows tools will tell you to do that and may in fact auto-do it.03:00
ClaptrapWell, it didn't auto-do it, that much is sure. :p03:00
Dr_Willisgood luck. Nioght03:00
ClaptrapThanks, you guys03:00
ClaptrapGiven me some thoughts, anyway.03:00
ClaptrapAnd confirmed what I was trying to avoid. :E03:00

ClaptrapI'm curious, though, since I'ma have nothing else to do for a bit03:02

ClaptrapI used the same ISO as for the other install03:03
ClaptrapWubi installs it03:03

g00dwilldlynes: my user is not in the sudo file. I'm locked out.04:01

bob_can anyone help me out??? When i log in a warning comes up telling me I am being logged in without admin privalages??04:04
dlynesg00dwill, or better yet, if you have to redownload, just download debian netinstall, and mount and chroot04:04
dlynesg00dwill, change what you need to change, and then reboot back into the hard drive04:05
Out_Cold_naidu, are you still looking for a solution?04:05
dlynesg00dwill, debian net install is only about 54MB's, and it gives you almost full console functionality04:05

Out_Cold_!sudo | bob_04:08
ubottubob_: sudo is a command to run command-line ( see !cli ) programs with superuser privileges ("root"). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE)04:08

markdit says ineed something called ndiswrapper how do i install this?04:11
dsnydersbrjann, That was an Ooo of appreciation.  I've been looking for something like that ever since the initial foulup.04:11

markdndiswrapper is not listed in synaptic04:12
markdwhere do i download it from?04:12
bob_it asks my password & then tells me i dont have privalages04:13
MilitantPotatobob_: ah, not good.  Go to user and group management, make sure you're in the sudoers group04:13
airtonixmarkd, 1) open synaptics 2) select packages to install 3) file -> generate download script 4) save to usb drive 5) move drive to internet connected machine 6a) if computer is linux : run script 6b) else copy paste each url you see in the script file (text file) and paste it to your browser 7) copy resulting deb files back to usb drive 8) plug back into your offline machine 9) file -> load files04:14

dlyneslittlegirl, just slap in a boot cd, and walk away04:16
littlegirldlynes: Not sure about that, but you can find out here: http://uck.sourceforge.net/04:16
airtonixmarkd, your install cd should already be a listed  source, insert it and reload your repositry listing04:16
littlegirldlynes: Yep, that should be possible.04:16
dlyneslittlegirl, maybe have about 50mb's worth of files on the cd, and the rest it grabs from the network04:16

ubottuPratikAnand: synaptic is Ubuntu's Graphical Package Manager. For a good howto see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticHowto04:36
LachancePratikAnand, you can also use apt and aptitude if you know how. (Google  it)04:36
airtonixdemonspork, your nvidia-settings ui will tell you the version04:36
markdso what should i do now? i have b43 fwcutter installed04:37
airtonixmarkd, did you read that page ?04:37
PratikAnandwith synaptic & aptitude, i can install later...i mean customizing so that even say google chrome comes pre-installed...04:37
dsnydersbrjann, I thought as much.  I had done a CTRL-ALT-F1 to issue the command and when I did CTRL-ALT-F7 to get back to the x display, it was back to the blank text screen with the underscore cursor.  I'm restarting x to try again.  Stand by...04:37
airtonixmarkd, (personally i think it would be easier if you installed wine and went down the path of using ndiswrapper)04:38
LachancePratikAnand, well, not preinstalled, but you can install Google Chrome (what I use), Songbird (instead of Rhythmbox), etc.04:38

markdso do i need to get it on another computer and put it on a ubs drive?04:38
airtonixmarkd, yes... or you could just unplug the ethernet cable from this computer and plug it into your offline machine04:39
NooneshereAny idea littlegirl?04:39
littlegirlNooneshere: If you didn't comment out the line that says that in the .conkyrc file I think that means it's working and you're seeing the text from the file.04:39
mgmuscariPratikAnand: look at the chromium-browser package, along with chromium-codecs-ffmpeg and chromium-codecs-ffmpeg-nonfree04:39

littlegirlNooneshere: Comment out that line and replace it with HELLO WORLD and see if you get HELLO WORLD when you run it. If so, it's working and it just needs to be configured with what you want to see. (:04:39
markdmost of my computers are wireless except for my mac mini04:40

theadminIn Jaunty, if cdrom disk was not present, cdrom did not appear in Places, now i have "cdrom0" there. Can i get it back like before?04:43
brjanndsnyders, i'm about out of ideas. the only other thing I can really think of is using the restricted driver manager to disable everything, reboot, and use the restricted driver manager to turn nvidia back on04:43
Lachancebecause i'm too lazy to say hi myself...04:43
littlegirlNooneshere: That's an awfully big .conkyrc. You could try another one before giving up on it.04:43
NooneshereI will. Thank you very much littlegirl04:43
dsnydersbrjann, hang on... a thought occurs...04:44
Lachancetheadmin, What's the problem with cdrom0?04:44
littlegirlNooneshere: Sure. I wish I could have helped you. Hopefully somebody else in here can!04:44
git__ever since i upgrade to 2.6.32.x kernel on my 9.10, i have no more freeze04:44

theadminLachance: Nothing, but i don't want something useless in the menu ;)04:44
nanotubemarkd: try installing the bmcwl-kernel-source package - that should work for your wifi...04:45
nanotubemarkd: and you won't have to deal with ndiswrapper or wine or anything like that.04:45
Lachancetheadmin, It's a virtual cdrom for specific issues. That's not essentially "useless". ;)04:45
markdis that in synaptic?04:45
NooneshereIt is most likely because i hacked a different architecture on this system. It was a very hard and bad move.04:45
nanotubemarkd: yes, it's in the official ubuntu repos04:46
theadminLachance: Hm. Well, it's still there even when i DISCONNECT the cdrom DEVICE, which is freaking me out, it's way too weird04:46
dsnydersbrjann, I checked the proprietary drivers tool, and it looks like the nvidia driver is not active.  I'm going to activate it.  stand by...04:46
NooneshereNo worries. Gday04:46
nanotubemarkd: either in universe or multiverse... one of those.04:46
markdhey guess what04:47
markdi installed b43 and reboted04:47
LachanceLol - theadmin there's a ton of stuff on your system that is "useless". The best thing to do is simply to ignore it and feel reassured that when you need it - it is there.04:47
littlegirlNooneshere: If you start with a very small .conkyrc file that doesn't require any paths or network connections or anything and make sure you get a display of some sort, then you can build on that bit by bit with what you'd like to see (temperatures, hard drive space, etc.).04:47
markdnow my adapter is seen04:47

Lachancetheadmin, I'd completely disagree with that.04:51

markdso if i put in the windows 7 disk do i a boot fix then i have to reinstall grub?04:54

gooooowhat would i have to do to my grub.cfg to make windows the default boot ?04:58
goooooi see it in the list it works but its not the default04:58
LachanceCynofield, it's best to download and compile your own new kernel for such an issue (not difficult, though most documentation makes it sound like it is) then implement the new kernel.04:59
Hellhound666markd: u say it just reboots automatically?04:59
Cynofieldwhat do u mean  by "your own new kernel" (sorry for dumb questions)04:59
dsnydersbrjann, did you want me to do the nvidia-xconfig?  If so, should I do it from an xterm window?04:59
Hellhound666I think if you have the DVD u can repair it on boot04:59
LachanceCynofield, this... is kind of a complex issue if you don't know that much. Are you sure you're up for this? It can completely nuke your system if you mess up...05:00
Hellhound666u try that?05:00
theadmingooooo: an editor specific for GRUB is called StartUp Manager, it's available in repositories, look for it in software center, dunno the package name05:00
brjanndsnyders, yes, and yes05:00
gooooohey cool thanks05:00

phyburnhello how could I check what wifi driver I'm using?05:23
ruby_on_tailsthanks everyone05:24
MilitantPotatoMost people do all their partitioning during the install, not after I'm guessing05:24
dsnyderstheadmin, because once you've installed you've already gone past the part where you need to partition things?05:24
MilitantPotatoI use it frequently for flash drives though, wish they'd leave it installed.05:24
ruby_on_tailshmm, why can't I pasre images from ubuntu into xp photoshop ?05:24
Switch10theadmin: I imagine because you have to unmount before you do anything with gparted. Unless u have other partitions most people have no need for it05:24
bwrStupid question: I accidently hit control+j and I don't know how to zoom back out. Hard05:25
Loshatheadmin: just do sudo apt-get install gparted05:25
bwrto find out with it zoomed in so far :/05:25
dsnydersMilitantPotato, well, it's only a sudo apt-get away.05:25
ruby_on_tailsthough, this is pretty slow05:25

Switch10theadmin: ya Install it right away as well05:27

rwwLinuxGuy2009: The mainline PPA has a copy at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.33/ . That site is completely unrecommended, unsupported, and if it breaks things you get to keep both pieces. There's no official package of 2.6.33 for Hardy.05:39

Now the wireless isn't working where it was before. I'm thinking that a module for the wireless isn't getting loaded (I could be way off) and I'm not sure how to proceed.06:37

ploomduckwars, at first, I would try to change terminal type. Do "echo $TERM" at command line to see what ubuntu detected. In case it is vt100, try just to change it to vt102 at your mac terminal preferences for example06:50

thirumikel: fine ya i ll try it out06:51
ploomduckwars, of course you have to change the delete key behaviour for the mac terminal preferences back as it was before...06:51
Myrttiiaindalton: yes.06:51
arandmarkd: first of all the root directory should be /media/#mountpoint# and the drive after that is where the mbr goes, so "/dev/sda" if it goes on the first drive..06:51

iaindaltonThe alternative is to build Emacs from source; there's no recent Ubuntu build. What bad things could happen if I use sid and Lucid packages?06:52
markdits apparently a known bug i found a bug report here http://bts.grml.org/grml/issue66506:52

iaindaltonMyrtti: I reported a bug to Emacs and they want to know if it's present in the latest build.06:53
markdhow do i do that?06:53
ploomduckwars, this should work too, but there are many things to consider: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/BackspaceDelete.html06:53

iaindaltonWhat bad things could happen if I had the lucid version of, say, libfontconfig1 and its dependencies?06:54
duckwarspico used to work though, i used to delete all the live long day06:54
Mike1Sacho iaindalton: using one package from other version of ubuntu or debian is usually no problem, but sometimes you would have to replace half your system :D06:54
ploomduckwars, another one: http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=2005052504092118906:55
markdmissed that how should i change it?06:55
arandmarkd: first of all the root directory should be /media/#mountpoint# and the drive after that is where the mbr goes, so "/dev/sda" if it goes on the first drive..06:55
iaindaltonMike1: I don't mind, unless that could cause problems. What I don't know is what, if any, kind of problems does it cause?06:55

AscavasaionI set up my laptop to access the Internet via bluetooth and cellphone, and since then my Blue-tooth applet has gone crazy.  It does not reappear if I remove and reinsert the USB Bluetooth dongle.  It also shows two adaptors in the blue-tooth applet (there is definitely only one), and it keeps losing all the setting I put in such as computer-name, display when inserted, etc.  The bluetooth/cellphone things works fine from command line08:00

llcoolhodgemoral_ , no it doesnt i am trying to get software but to tell u the truth i have no idea what any of it means08:26

Moral_llcoolhodge, okay, does it give you any errors when you try and use your webcam with skype?08:27
JrodDCxbullgard:  sorry :( , try system monitor , and select network08:27
DannyButtermanAirtonix: I've just tried a connection on each of them shares, and upon identification it seems each matches a share on the samba server08:27
JrodDCxbullgard:  sorry :( , try system monitor , and select network  ( under apps -> systools -> system monitor and click on the network tab)08:28
airtonixDannyButterman, windows exploerer does not support ssh filesystems..you would need to use a third party file browser that supports ssh filesystems08:28
DannyButtermanAirtonix:but this is a freenas box, which runs also ssh, rsync, ftp, and cifs08:28

DannyButtermanairtonix: yes, smb://freenas08:30
airtonixabumaia, yes, portforwarding & ssh08:30
npoBaJlabumaia I believe sharing the volume will do just fine. For LAN at least...08:30
brand0nanyone have experiencing with the ps3 webcam on ubuntu?08:31
abumaiaairtonix: for ssh, do I have to install anything on the windox box?08:31
airtonixDannyButterman, that is why the windows explorer can't see your sftp:// entry... it does not natively support ssh filesystems08:31
bullgardJrodDCx: System Monitor is not to be found under Applications > System Tools. System Monitor does not have a menu item 'Network' to select.08:31
airtonixabumaia, actually. sorry not ssh.08:32
DannyButtermanairtonix:I see, that's not a bug from ubuntu, but a feature... ;)08:32
airtonixDannyButterman, yes the two entries are. i think i did see something about sshfs for windows...08:32

brjannbullgard, hope it works for you :)08:48

rifterbullgard, I'm checking out tcpstat though it might help08:50
brjannbullgard, ah. sorry to say ipband won't work for that... and I doubt anything will, really. I don't think anything keeps track at the subnet level unless it's asked to.08:50

bullgardrifter: Yes.08:51
brjannasmith, nginx may still have an open file handle or something. you might want to restart it.08:51

titan_arkhey! need an urgent help with OOo. I was trying to install the odf-converter as docx format documents were garbled and now it is is not opening any documents! is there a way to remove and reinstall all OOo packages?09:20
brjannasmith, in one directory you can use ls -lSh09:20
brjannasmith, -l for long format, -S to sort by size descending, and -h so humans can read the numbers :)09:21
JrodDCxtitan_ark:  you need to goto synaptic and select reinstall and reinstall the open office packages09:21

asmith brjann: or -r will do the trick?09:22

brjannasmith, -R will recuse, but it won't sort all files at once, but just in each directory09:22

pfarrellhi. I am trying to make a debian package of a small python program that I wrote. It consists of some python modules (in the namespace diamond.*) and a script that runs them (in /usr/bin/diamond). When I make the package, the .deb has all of the .py files in /usr/share/pyshared, as I would expect. But when I try to run /usr/bin/diamond, it says it cannot find the diamond.* modules; there is no symlink in /usr/lib/python2.X/dist-packages to the09:37
pfarrell /usr/share/pyshared/diamond directory. I've tried calling both dh_pycentral -i and dh_pysupport -i in the debian/rules file, but the same behaviour occurs with both. any ideas? if I add a symlink /usr/lib/python2.X/dist-packages/diamond ->  /usr/share/pyshared/diamond, then it works; but I thought that the .deb would take care of that itself09:37

madPJKfanthere are a couple of commands, I think10:25
brjannfuzzybunny, yep, i believe so. it's not a fast test, definitely something you want to do when you've got a night to let it run10:25
madPJKfanglxinfo mebbe?10:25
* AkhlD have reinstalled the ubuntu9.10 and all my files in the other Drive (NTFS) has an extension like *.viCrypt10:25
AkhlDhow do i brin those files back ?10:25
rifterfuzzybunny, I think sensors-applet is the applet that puts the sensors onyour bar, and that should depend all the modules you need.  that applet shows the temperatures10:26
AkhlDitheos, try VNC10:26
madPJKfan...thinking... X - version?10:26
hiexporifter, yes that's whatthey are  i use them10:26
rifterfuzzybunny, yeah sensors-applet.  you might have to add it to the bar manually after ypou install it10:27
AkhlDanyone have answer for my question ?10:27
fuzzybunnythanks you guys10:27
fuzzybunnyI will give it a shot and see what i come up with10:27
IndustrialmadPJKfan: what about internet and sound? I _need_ to run nm-applet to get internet? theres no initscript for networks?10:27
fuzzybunnywhat logs should i look in?10:27
rifterfuzzybunny, system monitor will show you cpu usage in a running graph, and of course top can break that down for you10:28
itheosdoesnt ubuntu provide any such software already installed? how can i expect a noob who has just boot from the live cd to install anything?10:28
brjannfuzzybunny, well, usually with a hard crash like that, logs don't help much, as the kernel freezes before it has a chance to complain.10:28
rifterfuzzybunny, so besides hardware faiilures like memory, you want to see if there are processes pegging the system or heat issues10:28
brjannfuzzybunny, but if there was anything useful, it'd probably be in /var/log/syslog or /var/log/kern.log10:28
fuzzybunnyif it is a heat issue what would you do in that situation if it is a laptop?10:28
fuzzybunnyI am quite a comp addict so it wouldn't surprise me if it is a heat issue10:29
hiexpofuzzybunny, if its a heat issue i did this fire up the ole compressor and with a airgun blow in the vents problem solved10:30
madPJKfanIndustrial - now out of my league - have to go afk, sorry10:30
brjannfuzzybunny, my laptop sits on a pad with fans in it10:30
brjannfuzzybunny, something like http://www.actfind.com/product_images/y/pcck0202__25103.jpg10:31
rifterfuzzybunny, gnome-system-monitor is the system monitor I was talking about10:31
jxajroalo bom dia a todos!10:31
rifterfuzzybunny, yeah make sure the laptop is not on something soft that is blocking  the vents, you can clean it, too10:31

=== andrea is now known as Guest41043
rifterfuzzybunny, and yeah there are stands like they are saying that elevate the laptop for better airflow and may also blow on it with fans10:32
al_with respect to find, how would you specify -name *.spf and *.md5 ?10:32
hiexpofuzzybunny, if its overheating it is dirty you need to blow it out normal core temp runs around 120 degrees10:32
al_-name *.spf && *.md5 ?10:32
erUSULal_: -name *.spf -name *.md510:33
al_erUSUL: ta10:33
rifterfuzzybunny, yeah just that would be a big help.  obviously if you're tecnical minded enough and it doesn't void your warranty you could take it apart and clean it more thoroughly.  But you're best off just getting the low-hanging fruit and not risking more damage.. laptops can be tougfh to get apart and at least some of them I have seen you need to replace the heatsink compound on certain parts if you open them10:34
fuzzybunnyoh ok10:34
rifterfuzzybunny, so, blow air in vents, make sure vents are not blocked10:34
fuzzybunnyok well thanks guys10:34
fuzzybunnyI will try all that10:34

sabgentoncould some grub2 person tell me: if i back up my grub.cfg and then overwrite it back if I have boot problems is that a bad idea?10:45
sabgentonas all changes now are spose to be done via update-grub10:45
sabgentondoes grub just look at grub.cfg and thats it or does it care about  all those scripts that got put together when you ran install-grub10:45
sabgentonif it only knows about grub.cfg I would asume overwriting it with a backed up grub.cfg  would be ok?10:45

indusFunkyWeasel, hi10:47
psycho_oreosFunkyWeasel, imo pulseaudio is usually the culprit, especially in older versions of *ubuntu10:47
indusFunkyWeasel, there was no pulseaudio in ibex10:48
induspsycho_oreos, as far as ai remember pulse came in hardy10:48
psycho_oreosindus, wasn't hardy before ibex? :)10:49

induspsycho_oreos, aah oops yes 8.1010:49
indusFunkyWeasel, install 9.1010:49
sabgentonbut I want to back up the grub.cfg that is made from those files10:49
indusFunkyWeasel, did you check with alsamixer if anything is muted10:49
FunkyWeaselindus psycho_oreos: Cheers chaps.  Oddly I find that now when I do sound preferences OSS produces a test where Pulse and ALSA produce loud crackles, but only when I plug headphones into the rear audio jack.10:49
sabgentonis that ok?10:49
fuzzybunnyoh guys I just have one other question. On my computer(Sony Vaio VGN-CR520D) there is this indicator light that comes on whenever you put the screen down and it is really bright. Is there anyway I can turn it off? In windows there was this sony utility that let you turn it off but I am not sure how to turn it off in linux10:49
erUSULsabgenton: if you backup a grub.cfg with pointers to kernel no longer installed it will not work when restored10:49
sabgentonif I restore (cp grub.cfg.back grub.cfg) will that be ok?10:50
FunkyWeaselIndus: Nothing's muted, and 9.10 is definitely on my to do list - unfortunately this is my work machine and I can still code on it.  Having no sound isn't mission critical, apart from my sanity in the office :)10:50
brjannfuzzybunny, the bluetooth light?10:51
FunkyWeaselI am also coming to the conclusion that my desktop is f[udg]ed.10:51
erUSULsabgenton: that's why update-grub is run with kernel install's and removals10:51
psycho_oreosFunkyWeasel, weird, if OSS did pass then it might be issue with driver on ALSA10:51
sabgentonerUSUL: are u simpley taking about if I no longer have the OS / kernel there to boot?10:51

emiliyopinocho komeme en el tuenti10:54
rifterFunkyWeasel, I have noticed that sometimes I get stuttering sound in certian applications or crackled distorted sound, using pulseaudio.  switching those applications to using esd or starting them with esddsp worked10:55
hiexpollcoolhodge, what are you trying to do?10:55
llcoolhodgei went to site followed steps but i am not good at ubuntu or computerrs yet can some one help me with steps to download gameboy advance emulator10:55
sabgentonerUSUL: ok from what your say all the new warnings about don't edit grub.cfg in grub2 are mainly waring about it being overridden when update-grub is run10:55
rifterFunkyWeasel, which is funny since the esd commands arer just routes to pulseaudio10:55
FunkyWeaselrifter: That's pretty crazy :)10:55
rifterFunkyWeasel, if you still have pulseaudio installed10:55
erUSULsabgenton: right10:55
brjannfuzzybunny, bummer. i'm out of ideas ;)10:56

joni_noplullcoolhodge, which emulator u want to install?10:58
rifterFunkyWeasel, what I mean by that is when pulseaudio is installed it replaces the esd commands with wrappers to pulseaudio10:58

=== jean is now known as Gozzy
peleg_rifter, actually, it looks like the problem does not occur using mplayer. So: is it possilbe that vlc has a problem due to the upgrade?11:25
brjannyeshuah, IO-heavy work? number crunching?11:25
indusGUcko1, for example with the wine ppa, you get to use the latest versions of wine instead of those from the repository ,but it will be unstable or might be11:25
rifterpeleg, maybe or maybe vlc is using a different mixer11:25
yeshuahbrjann: it's parsing an xls file - comparing to an xml file - and creating a 2nd xml file from this11:25
rifterpeleg, I'd say the latter is more likely11:25

peleg_rifter, I see... have any idea how can I check that? How can I check what mixer does it use, and how can I check the mixer itself?11:26
rifterpeleg, you can force the mixer by adding a command to the startup, for instance esddsp will tell it to use esd, padsp will tell it to use pulseaudio11:27
erUSULyeshuah: is the process heavy on i/o ?11:27
GUcko1Indus: I'm having trouble with the video card on my new Inspiron that has core i3 and integrated Intel graphic chip :(11:27

rifterpeleg, well some programs let you change the mixer in configurations or commands; I'm not sure how to do that to vlc, but I do know if you prepend one of those commands it will reroute the sound t o a different mixer11:27

RolandDHere is an issue that has been bugging me for years and now it is time to get it solved :) I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and AMP. All is working fine except I cannot edit any files with my own username. All files are set to www-data:www-data and permissions to 644. My account is added to the www-data group. How can I edit files without having to use sudo?11:27
GUcko1Indus: 9.1011:28
ubottuUbuntu 9.04 has a known regression for some Intel graphics support. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/IntelPerformance and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1130582 for more information.11:28
indusok old11:28
jribRolandD: give the group write permissions11:28
GUcko1Indus: The new CPUs have the graphic chip integrated with the CPU11:28
rifteryeshuah, nice won't necessarily change the cpu load of a process.  what it does is give more slices to other processes11:28
bazhangindus, 9.10 is not old11:28
brjannRolandD, 644 means u=rw, g=r, o=r. you want 664 if you want to be able to write.11:28
indusyes my comment was posted before11:28
Sh3r1ffRolandD: you can't edit because the group rights are set to only read11:29
jribRolandD: or better yet, make a new group since you probably don't want apache to be able to write to all you files (it already can)11:29
indusbut one thing i know is core i3 all features are not used by the kernel in 9.1011:29
Sh3r1ffRolandD: if you want to edit them with your user, change the rights to 66411:29

hiexporifter, -  was wondering if it's as good as karmic11:32
brjannyeshuah, be forewarned though that limits can be set harsh enough to cause the kernel to kill the process, and you probably don't want that. so tread lightly. :)11:32
gartral|pindus no, it still accesses cd for alot of resources11:32
jribmadura: what did you install exactly?  Did you install the -dev package for ncurses?11:32

rifteryeshuah, yes11:54
rifteryeshuah, and when a proces uses more swp, it uses more cpu and more hard disk11:54
yeshuahrifter: yeah cos it's continually writing from memory to the disk and back again11:55
rifteryeshuah, so, what does the top part of top look like as far as memory utilization?11:55

ragsrifter: Here's my lilo.conf, I've removed the commented stuff out : http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/K1mJK9HA11:56
rifteryeshuah, yeah you are using all your ram and all your swap ... you should hit o to change order and then q to change to resident memory to see what processes are using your real ram11:57

alabdhello , Pidgon does not join to yahoo room why ?11:58
yeshuahrifter: so I guess I just have to find a way to optimize the script itself instead then?11:59
rifteryeshuah, when you use the free command it has a second line that gives the total used without buffers included (linux uses practically all your ram for buffers by default,but it frees that when it is needed) since you have all your swap being used,though, it makes me think you might really be using all that memory11:59

Ctrl-Alt-F1 & Ctrl-Alt-Backspace don't work, the keyboard is irresponsive (only Caps Lock works), so I can't access console.
