Curly_QLosha, If you are using a Dynamic DHCP service rather than Static, then, the IP addresses as well as the Domain names cannot be port forwarded or assigned to the server.00:00

alienkid10I need to boot from CD though00:00
derekboy@Pandaman: The only times I've ever seen it happen was when installing something through Software Center, synaptic, etc.00:00
alienkid10can't boot USB00:00
Losha_2: doesn't change my answer: man ssh00:00
Pindamanderekboy, my prior ubuntu installation also head problems with speed when the harddisk was busy. What version of Ubuntu do you use?00:01
Typos_Kingalienkid10:   boot the system from the live-cd and save the system settings in usb?   well.... not sure on that, not that I've done it... so can't say00:01

jadakren!anyone | tertitten00:01
Curly_QIn other words, having a static address with Go-Daddy and having a Domain Name, then, the port forwarding would be important.00:01
ubottutertitten: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?00:01

BluesKaj-Laptopwirechief, ok ..interesting discussion just the same ;000:02
Pindamanderekboy, not sure but i think thats just something Ubuntu has. Not sure though :x I dont have it anymore under 9.1000:02
_2Losha: ummm maybe it's something to do with ssh-agent ???00:02
Loshajoineric: ok, that's good, it means it's "just" a config issue, not a hardware failure....00:02
derekboy@Pindaman: After reinstalling it though Wubi a second time (I thought it was my unsupported video drivers) I haven't seen it, but other users on my computer have said it does while browsing the Web and not installing anything.00:03
Curly_QIn other words, a DNS (domain name server) would forward the IP address to the DNS server while the Linux Server will BIND it.00:03
Losha_2: I thought the whole point of ssh-agent was set it & forget it?00:03
Pindamanderekboy, hmm cant help you there other then to advice to install all update ;p00:03

Pindamanderekboy, i cant help with that. But make sure you have Ubuntu updated00:04
Loshajoineric: you need to edit /etc/network/interfaces. I will paste my config. It should be obvious what to change for your network, ok?00:04
joinericLosha: sounds great!00:04
derekboy@Pindaman: Oh thanks. I have it completely updated and am running System Testing right now to see what happens without Intel Video drivers ~,~00:05
Typos_Kingderekboy:   burn the .iso to cd, try to boot with it :|00:05

Dunkirkpeekay, Sorry, I meant that for raj.00:59
morph_can someone answer a question for me00:59
Dunkirkbipolar, Looks like dpkg-preconfigure?01:00
dsnydersmorph_, nobody can answer a question that has not been asked.01:00
GeekSquid!ask |morph_01:00
ubottumorph_: Please 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. :-)01:00
morph_i install ubuntu01:00
morph_im on an iMac OSX01:00
koolguyhey everyone01:00
Barnabashumoi, you should manually enter an ip address outside the addres scope of your dhcp server01:00
morph_so im dual booting01:00
LoshaVaffanculoNostra: I'm not sure the opinion of a boss at a company in chapter 11 holds much weight. What's he an expert at?01:00

morph_it goes to a black screen that says grub_rescue01:00
Barnabasso you need to figure out what the IP dhcp address config for your land is01:00
BarnabasLAN is01:00
morph_ok let me try again01:00
koolguyim on a dell inspiron 1501, and need to reset my wireless on the beta of ubuntu 10.0401:01
VaffanculoNostraLosha: Expert at running an ISP on $400 emachines servers, apparently.01:01
=== ubuntu is now known as Steve`_`
joinericLosha: i edited the interfaces and rebooted and still no luck01:01
Barnabashumoi, that would be configured in your router01:01
humoiBarnabas, a local address?01:01
bazhangkoolguy, lucid support in #ubuntu+101:01
Steve`_`i am right on the edge of switching from windows 7 to ubuntu or possibly kubuntu01:01
morph_im on an iMac running OSX, when i install ubuntu and select it to boot into it goes to a black screen and that just says "grub_rescue"01:01
koolguylol ok01:01
morph_that is my problem01:01
bipolarDunkirk: unfortunately, it seems dpkg-preconfigure still pops up the question to ask. :(01:01
humoiBarnabas, what do you mean that would be configured by my router?01:01
GeekSquidmorph_: ? using bootcamp?01:01
Barnabashumoi, perhaps your router is able to issue a fixed ip to a single pc ever time it logs on (static ip) and restrict internet access for it01:02
morph_tried just from CD too01:02
morph_tried rEFit01:02
Typos_Kingraj:     why don't you just add in an init.d script then, so it's done at bootup01:02
=== bonnie_away is now known as bonnie
Dunkirkbipolar, :-( I'd like to see the answer too.01:02
Barnabashumoi, do you know about dhcp?01:02
humoiBarnabas, great but how would i do that01:02
=== bonnie is now known as acovrig
Typos_Kingraj:    I think you can even add it to /etc/profile01:02
humoiBarnabas, all i know is that it automatically assigns public ips01:02
rajTypos_King: how do you do that? that is what im trying to do. but i never added any script at startup01:03
bipolarDunkirk: I can do it with a preseed, but thats during installation. :\01:03
Barnabashumoi, not public ips it assigns an available IP on your subnet to a computer for a certain lease01:03
morph_also these are the settings i use: sda3(partition ubuntu is installed on) i selected ext4, reformat, and mount point / on grub i select sda3 since thats what ubuntu is on Barnabas01:03
zetherooa friend of mine tried to install a scanner driver and app through WINE ... this would not have worked right? I mean, is WINE capable of installing and running device drivers?01:03
Typos_Kingraj:   try giving it to /etc/profile    without the sudo, since that'd be a rooted process anyhow01:03
axisysanyone here starts vbox VM with upstart? i am looking for an example to start guest VM when host reboots01:03
Dunkirkraj, I still think /etc/rc.local is your answer. Whatever commands are in it are run as the last thing at startup.01:03
dsnydersTypos_King, Isn't there a file in /etc/networking/scripts or something that raj can use to set the network card parameters?01:04
morph_Barnabas: i also installed debian earlier with no problems01:04
humoiBarnabas, i apologise for my ignorance of networking but does subnet mean your lan?01:04
humoiBarnabas, can we pm?01:04
LoshaVaffanculoNostra: not quite an expert apparently. But back to topic, one of the recovery tools *might* work, I've had good luck using EASUS to recover files from an ext3 disk when nothing else would work (though it's a bit weird cos you have to run it from windows). Otherwise, you just have to let the fsck run to completion and hope the result is readable, and there's no guarantee that it will be...01:04
Barnabasyes the network you have in your home on the inside of your router01:04
rajDunkirk: i will try both and see which one will start up after reboot :)01:04
morph_Barnabas: did u see what i said01:05
Typos_Kingdsnyders.... think so01:05
morph_about how i set it up01:05
Barnabashumoi, do you have access to your router config01:05
humoiBarnabas, yes.01:05

morph_Barnabas: pm?01:06
humoiBarnabas, what ip should i assign it?01:07
jadakrenBarnabas, last modem router i had wasnt that good and didn't allow for assigning an ip to a machine per mac address which is waht you really need to prevent someone getting around access restrictions based on ip address01:07
Barnabasip access = internet access01:07
humoiBarnabas, what ip should i assign it?01:07
dsnydersDunkirk, Typos_King, raj, Unfortunately I don't remember enough about it to be able to help directly.  I remember editing those on one of my machines for my wired lan long ago though.01:07

DunkirkJoeseph, Do you have a second monitor hooked up?01:14
JoesephDunkirk: No.01:14
Typos_KingJoeseph:     try   pressing F6 for boot options, and check   acpi=off noapic01:14
dsnydershumoi, you could use 172.16.x.y to 172.31.x.y as well.01:14
Barnabasmorph_ the disk is not enough in grub, you should also consider the partition you wish to boot from01:15
Barnabasand that partition should have a boot sector01:15
morph_hat do u mean?01:15
morph_i used bootcamp01:15
Dunkirkhumoi, Careful... you have to get the mask right for that to work...01:15

morph_im kinda new to that stufff i duno what a boot sector is01:16
johngroup when you have time I too can use some help ok I will wait01:16
Barnabasmorph, could you post your disk config on pastebin?01:17
morph_can u walk me through it?01:17
morph_i deleted the partition btw already01:17
Dunkirkmorph_, Your BIOS hands off the booting to the hard drives Master Boot Record (MBR), that, in turn, hands off to the partition's Boot Sector.01:17
morph_i dont have BIOS01:17
Barnabasmorph if you deleted the partion you probably cannot boot of it01:17
morph_rEFit changes the MBR to a copy of GFT01:18
Barnabasmorph all pcs have a BIOS01:18
Dunkirkmorph_, Well, basecamp better provide it, or you're not going to get Ubuntu booted.01:18
JoesephTypos_King: It seems to be working...  Thanks, I'll probably be asking a few more questions.01:18
morph_basecamp Dunkirk ?01:18
Dunkirkmorph_, I thought you were the guy on the iMac...01:18
sirninjaHe probably meant bootcamp, not basecamp01:19
Dunkirksirninja, OOps. Indeed.01:19
Barnabasaww a mac01:19
Barnabaswell still01:19
morph_i used bootcamp01:19
Barnabasif the partition is deleted there will be no booting01:19
morph_i have no problem making a new partition01:19
morph_and reinstalling01:19
morph_as long as i can get it loading01:19
JoesephTypos_King: Ok.  There's a wubi install already on the disk.  How can I boot that version with those options?01:19

IceDaneSo, I just installed a fresh install of 9.10 on my laptop because the sound was a clusterfuck after upgrading from 9.04. I *still* cannot play sound from two sources at a time, however. Could this because mpd uses alsa directly? Do I need to make it use pulseaudio?01:22
Typos_Kingdsnyders    sounds  italian actually01:22

ocesnono support for 054c:00c0 Sony Corp. Handycam DCR-30 :( my minidv for webcam01:25
DunkirkIceDane, You're talking about the "bell"?01:25
IceDaneDunkirk: It could be that, yes01:25
JoesephTypos_King: Yes.  There is an install on there that was installed via Wubi.  However, it does not boot... It boots into Windows instead. I was wondering if there was a way to configure that system with those properties you told me earlier.01:25
IceDaneIs there a process running that does it? Cause it's actually locking my sound up if it sounds and tries to play a song..01:26
DunkirkIceDane, It's still a "bell", even if it's muted. Under some sessions it can flash the screen. You may want to set the bell-style to none in xinputrc. Or something. I always have to google that.01:26
DunkirkIceDane, What's your sound card?01:26
IceDaneDunkirk: Some realtek(alc268), using hda intel drivers01:26
Typos_KingJoeseph:     .....iirc a wubi installs on a fat32 partition.... not sure how that works.... you mean... you lost grub that was loading the win32 and the wubi installs?01:27
donvitowere can i get cccam for ubuntu 9.1001:27
DunkirkIceDane, Maybe there's a way to "dpkg-reconfigure" some alsa / pulseaudio stuff that will take advantage of the fact that you upgraded? I'm guessing.01:28
JoesephTypos_King: When the windows boot menu comes up, it shows Ubuntu and windows, but Ubuntu just stalls first, then boots into Windows.01:28
IceDaneDunkirk: I reinstalled completely01:28
DunkirkIceDane, That answers that. :-/01:28
IceDaneDunkirk: Which is why I'm pretty baffled. I'm still getting strange 'sound takeovers'01:29
IceDaneI assumed pulseaudio would have taken care of all this stuff01:29
IceDaneBut it seems every program that uses sound takes complete control of it for the duration, and some time after depending on how long it takes to release resources01:29
DunkirkIceDane, Yeah, but not everything's been converted to use it yet. :-(01:29
Typos_KingJoeseph      is the wubi install on a different partition than the win32?01:29
IceDaneperhaps not01:29
IceDaneDunkirk: how do I know if I'm even using it?01:29
niko-mojoHi room, Anyone know how to get this command working echo -e '\a' , its supposed to produce a beep but does nothing :-(01:30
IceDaneI mean, in alsamixer, or anywhere else, I see nothing about it01:30
niko-mojoUsing 9.04 gnome01:30
JoesephTypos_King: No. It's on the same partition.  There's nothing on it, so I could just get rid of it If I need to.01:30
IceDaneI don't understand it all to owell01:30
dsnydersDunkirk, I'm not sure.  I don't see how an xorg setting would affect gnome but not kde.01:30
DunkirkIceDane, Good question. I'm a recent convert from Gentoo, and, there, I used to just eliminate pulseaudio from my system entirely.01:30
IceDaneDunkirk: Yeah.. That's what I tried to do last time, before reisntalling completely01:31
jnarowskiHey all01:31
IceDaneI started by thinking "Okay, the reason sound is so strange is because some stuff is using pulseaudio and some is using alsa directly, or because pulseaudio isn't there completely" or some such, it wasn't really empirically supported01:31
IceDaneSo I tried setting up pulseaudio completely, that broke everything01:31
jnarowskiI am about to setup a ROR web server and I am wondering what is the best Ubuntu distro for that01:31
IceDaneI tried reverting my steps, it broke even more stuff01:32
IceDaneI tried removing pulseaudio entirely, and it broke sound to smithereens01:32
unopniko-mojo, 1. your terminal has to support this action. 2. you might need to enable the bell in the terminal's settings.  3. you might need to load the 'pcspkr' kernel module (sudo modprobe pcspkr).01:32
JoesephTypos_King: Actually, I think The Wubi has been uninstalled...  I'll play around with it a little longer.  Thanks for the help.01:32
jnarowskidoes anybody have any suggestions? I am not really clear on the differences01:33
johnHi again01:33
sirninjaDoes anybody know a program to help organize tv shows?01:33
Typos_KingJoeseph:   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WubiGuide#Cannot boot into Ubuntu    <--- in case that helps01:33

unopniko-mojo, i mentioned 3 things tho :)01:34
magn3tsUbuntu keeps regressing and using an old X11 pointer, also a particular X11 mouse theme fails to show up in the mouse point selection dialog and I can only apply it by deleting it from ~/.icons and reinstalling it (I must select "Use this theme" otherwise I have to restart since I can't select it)01:34

jnarowskiharty intrepid jaunty and karmic01:35
Chaiwallahello people01:35
DunkirkIceDane, Well, I was just going to say that, if you were running Gnome, I'd go for installing MORE gstreamer stuff, not taking stuff out.01:35
niko-mojo@unop so you did, how do I know if its supported01:35
DunkirkIceDane, But I'm not sure if Flux is as "plugged" into gstreamer as Gnome.01:35
IceDaneDunkirk: God this seems strange, all of it, heh..01:35
ectropynot when konsole --noclose --real-transparency -e "scrpt_that_uses_read_and_write" , Typos_King01:36
DunkirkIceDane, I agree. I've been through many of these types of switchovers in Linux land over the years. It sucks if you get caught out.01:36
IceDaneDunkirk: I'll just ask on ubuntuforums or something - thanks for the help.01:37
Dunkirkmagn3ts, You might try something about "update-alternatives" and x-cursor-theme.01:38
Typos_Kingectropy:     you get the r/w access of whatever runlevel you're on, as far as running konsole, you can just run 'konsole' and that'd work fine for either on the current runlevel01:38
* Typos_King dashes01:38
magn3tsDunkirk, weird, "update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme" doesn't list themes I've installed into ~01:39
magn3tsDunkirk, I could try instaling them manually01:39
Dunkirkmagn3ts, Oh, yeah, that only controls the system-wide stuff. Have you installed the local stuff trhough the gnome panel for themes?01:39
magn3tsDunkirk, yes.01:39

niko-mojoHas anyone got the terminal bell working in 9.04 ?01:41
magn3tsDunkirk, Other mouse themes work fine when installing through gnome-appearance01:41
Dunkirkmagn3ts, I'd buy that. _-/01:41
niblzDunkirk: is that part of kvm01:42
GeekSquidmagn3ts: you might try running gconf-editor go a little deeper into your settings, it may take a little while to find where the conflict is01:42
Dunkirkniblz, No. It's a GUI management util that runs on your desktop that can (over SSH, for instance) talk to the libvirt daemon, and start, stop, even migrate VM's on the host.01:43
magn3tsIts not a conflict though, its just a problem of gnome-appearance not recognizing it as a valid theme. That and I have no idea why I can use chromium for an hour with the correct iamges displayed, but when I leave and come back, when I'm in hte browser pane it switches back to the default icons01:43
Dunkirkniblz, You have to install it separately, but, again, on your management machine. It's a GUI, and you may not have X installed on your server. But it could all be the same machine.01:44
ubottuPlease don't use "LOL" and "OMG" and so forth on a regular basis. This is IRC, not IM, and using those lines on their own is not required, and it is rather annoying to the rest of the people in the channel; thanks.01:44

computer_how do i install ubuntu-restricted-extras? says package not found?01:52
Siph0nI installed ubuntu on my 16GB flash drive, and in GParted it says my flash drive has 1 partition /dev/sdb1 and it is the full size of the drive and is mounted to /cdrom . But in df -h I see this : http://pastebin.com/WNrMyW7J . My / only has 3M left. Any ideas how to increase the size of / and lower the size of /cdrom? Also, where is the data stored on / if it isn't on /cdrom (my flash drive)?01:53

I would reccommend using the ppa version here https://launchpad.net/~pietia7-asterisk/+archive/asterisk-related?field.series_filter=karmic ... is available ... is still upstream and probably won't compile properly, as it is dependent on newer versions of libraries... compiling asterisk from source sounds like a major headache02:20

Bllasaetwo people, /nick and /quit are on a boat. /nick falls off the boat. who's left on the boat?02:26
GeekSquidhipitihop: that sounds more like a call routing problem... your dialplan isn't properly configured, whereas the version you compiled is using all your CPU ... I still think you would be better off with a version that has been modified for Ubuntu, as opposed to a version that isn't tested and probably requires more upstream stuff,,, unable to tell you further02:26

hipitihopGeekSquid, understand your point, but the current ubuntu version is also broken ... is there an earlier liek 1.6.1 verison I can install ?02:29

Jordan_Udsnyders, Log into a failsafe gnome session and change the default resolution to something your monitor supports02:35
GeekSquidhipitihop: I assume /usr/local/ or ~/asterisk/ is where you compiled from ... so safe to delete or rename... init.d/asterisk calls it so the new version called by the installed version would call the right binary02:35
dsnydersJordan_U, It happens with failsafe gnome as well.02:35
Jordan_Udsnyders, Or it can probably be changed in gconf-editor02:35

GeekSquidanandre:  you will need a copy of windows and a COA ... just like installing windows, just in a virtual harddrive02:47
anandreGeekSquid, COA?02:47
Jordan_Uavemaria, Do you really care about the application or is it just the *data* that that application can access?02:47
coz_avemaria,  let me know if that works for you02:47
sha0Good day.  I installed gsnes9x but have no idea what the binary is...  How do I see which files were installed, if you please?02:47
dawningHow can I grab a snapshot from my webcam from the command line (it's a v4l device, I'd like a png)??02:48
GeekSquidanandre: Certificate of authenticity...  the codes that come with windows that allow you to install02:48
trismsha0: dpkg -L gsnes9x; will list all the files installed02:48
avemariasure, but how do i migrate the existing data02:48
sha0trism: dpkg.  Thanks so much!02:48
candyiceroot, is it available in syanptic manager?02:48
Jordan_Uavemaria, Do you really care about the application or is it just the *data* that that application can access? ( please answer this question, because it it's the data then there is a very easy and complete solution built into Ubuntu )02:49
coz_dawning,  you could in install streamer and then the command should be   streamer -f jpeg -o /path/to/image.jpeg02:49
sha0trism: Wouldn't you know it's "GSnes9x".  Thanks again.02:49
hipitihopanandre, any specific games you are trying to run on windows ?, because fair few can be run with WINE but if you have already eliminated that then I'm not sure running in a VM will help you much for gaming02:49
dawningcoz_: Cool, thanks, I'll take a look02:49
* sha0 smacks his forehead and bids all a farewell.02:49
jpittsdmaxx: all your computer knows about your network traffic is what your gateway ( probably your router ) tells is. and all it knows is what your ISP tells it. and so on. any party in the middle could play any game they wanted to, and you would have no way of knowing. UNLESS you are using a secure protocol.02:49
coz_dawning,  and changer the format to .png  but I have not tested that part02:49
anandrehipitihop, WoW specifically.02:49
coz_dawning,  just found this    http://ubuntu.online02.com/node/2502:50
kajievening folks!02:50
anandreI know it can be run in Wine because there's plenty of sites with instructions on how to do it, but I'm encountering errors trying to do it.02:50
GeekSquidkaji: hello friend02:50
computer_how do i play m3u files?02:51
avemariaJordan: its both the things data as well as application, when i think of this solution i.e create a new user i might not access all the other applications that i have installed within the existing user02:51

daarthweezer6can someon help me with installing oblivion on ubuntu 9.10?  I tried to install it via pol and it takes me to the play menu and when i hit play it shuts down02:52
NikyoHas anyone seen or know of a problem with Ubuntu 9.10, where when you close a laptop, the laptop does not go into sleep or hibernate mode, just locks up with a black screen,please.02:52
kajiGot two issues I was hoping to get help with, one is getting the screen rotation to work with my lifebook p1510d, i found a post about it, but some of the files needed for it are gone. The second...and it's kinda crazy, but is there a way to get the fingerprint sensor working for login? (totallysuperflous, but fun)02:52
coz_computer_,   sudo apt-get install ubuntu -restrected-extras02:52
hipitihopGeekSquid, now, I think you missed a response for me :-) do I need to downgrade/remove before trying this testing ppa version ?02:52
grendal_primeanyone on the iphone ubuntu problem?02:52
computer_did that already02:52
anandrehipitihop, here's a rather silly question.  I installed Wine before realizing I should get Wine1.2.  How do I check which I'm using (did Wine1.2 overwrite Wine)?02:53
coz_computer_,  but an m3u is just actually a playlist i believe02:53
dawningcoz_: Cool, looks good.. Seems I'm having an annoying little apt problem I'll have to deal with in order to install that...02:53
Dr_Willisanandre:  wine --version02:53
GeekSquidhipitihop: remove any installed version, remove /etc/init.d/asterisk ... then install the ppa version02:53
Ganymedeanyone having nivdia-glx-96 working with karmic with compiz running? i tried earlier and ran into trouble because of an unsupported xorg version02:53
coz_dawning,  cool let me know if all works out :)02:53
=== nikolam_ is now known as nikolam__
hipitihopanandre, I uess that dpeends on how you installed. normaly you should be installing evrything via synaptic and it gets taken care of02:53
coz_Ganymede,  is this an upgraded system or a clean install?02:54
coz_Ganymede,   in terminal    lspci | grep -i vga02:54
Ganymedecoz_, upgraded system, from 9.04...back then my geforce 3 worked fine02:54
anandrehipitihop, I did it via sudo apt-get I think.  Willis' command returned wine-1.1.31, which I would assume is not wine1.2?02:54
hipitihopGeekSquid, that takes care of init.d but whatabout all the guff the 'make' and make install does02:54
hipitihopGeekSquid, will teh ppa install version just sort that out ? or is there a correct way to remove an instlalation that was done from a source compile/install02:55
Ganymedecoz_, actually, i'm not in front of this computer right now, i'm now deciding whether to buy an FX series card just for driver support, but i'm sure it was an NV2002:55
coz_Ganymede,   ok  and you installed from hardware drivers?02:55
daarthweezer6if someone could help me with oblivion that would be great because I am fairly new to linux and am not quite sure how to do all the tweeking with the software yet02:55
GeekSquidhipitihop: that all happens within the working directory i.e. ~/asterisk1.6.xxxxx doesn't change anything outside of that directory02:55
seanbrystoneim trying to copy my public key to my laptop, im able to copy it to my desktop, getting error: ERROR: NO identities found, what am i doing wrong?02:55
hipitihopanandre, apt-get is what synaptice uses underneath anyway so you would only have one version02:55
anandrehipitihop, never mind.  Package manager says it's wine1.202:55
Ganymedecoz_, yes, sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-96 or something...the automatic hardware detection thing did not suggest the driver for me02:56
Ganymedecoz_, i assume it did not suggest the restricted driver because it knew 96 series did not work on ubuntu 9.1002:56
coz_Ganymede,  ok you may want to go to either #ubuntu-x  or #nvidia  channels .... I dont have a card like that to test here02:56
Ganymedecoz_, okay, thanks02:56
jpittslong install question (repeat) http://paste.ubuntu.com/384822/02:56
hipitihopanandre, ok then you should be right to go02:56
anandrehipitihop, the Wowwiki link you gave me is more or less a link I posted earlier (which I was following).  WoW still refuses to work for me though. :s02:57
daarthweezer6actually be back soon finishing a movie.  my email is ezrafink@freegeek.org if someone can email me the instructions02:57
anandreIt boots up, goes to a black screen, and comes back with a whole bunch of stuff in the terminal and my screen resolution is now 800x600 instead of its normal value.02:57
coz_jpitts,  out of my experience with that one ...sorry02:57
daarthweezer6thank you in advance :)02:57
GeekSquidjpitts: use LVM ... Logical Volume Managment ... it is a true raid0 .. so ubuntu needs to see it as that02:57
kajiI'm mostly only concerned with the screen rotation button actually rotating the screen if anyone can help me.02:58
Roastedsimple question - firing up emerald theme manager for the first time. Is there a secret to using this? Whenever I dbl click on other themes, nothing happens.02:58
GeekSquidRoasted: what version of ubuntu?02:58
Dr_WillisRoasted:  emerald is a dieing off project. - You basically download  themes now from different sites. the 'repos' for the themes in the theme manager has been down for some time02:58
coz_daarthweezer,   did you look here   http://www.uesp.net/wiki/oblivion:linux02:58
xanguaRoasted: emerald --replace02:58
RoastedDr_Willis, oh really? I wanst aware of that.02:59
coz_from alt+F2 ^^02:59
ubottuemerald is an obsolete window decorator for compiz. It's unsupported and unmaintained, making issues with it very hard to diagnose and fix. There are no known, supported alternatives.02:59
RoastedDr_Willis, are the themes you get from gnome look and whatnot kind of taking over?02:59

Dr_WillisRoasted:  emerald themes are not the same as gnome/metacity themes.02:59
RoastedDr_Willis, is there a significant difference?03:00
jpittsGeekSquid: i am not sure it really is a true hardware raid after reading some things - i get the impression it is some weird driver-assisted 'thing'. in any case, it is a large, NTFS-formatted media storage volume, and i am unwilling to break the mirror. i am quite nervous about LVM.03:00
coz_Roasted,  right now there are only 2 supported window decorations supported by compiz    gtk-window-decorator and  kde4-window-decorator03:00
hipitihopanandre, ah sorry about that... there was some python script stuff about that automated a lot of this stuff, can't remeber the name of that now03:00
Dr_WillisRoasted:  the 2 progrms are differnt. some themes may look similer.. but its like asking  how kde and gnome themes are related. :)03:00

seanbrystonejpitts, yep03:14
anandreBut I'll let you know how it turns out.03:14
hipitihopanandre, ok virtualbox will work guaranteed assuming you have your original disks and license to activate... the only thing I'm not 100% certain of is you require power graphics drivers or performance critical03:15
jpittsseanbrystone: and your public key file is in .ssh/ ?03:15
anandrehipitihop, do I absolutely need the original disks or will an ISO work?03:16
jpittsseanbrystone: what does ls -l <path/to/keyfile> tell you?03:16
hipitihopanandre, I use vb in my everyday paid software development which I have no choice but to run on windows, so I know vb works and is stbale, but I also don't try and run grphic intensive games.03:16
Tempananandre, yes, an ISO will work. if you have legal keys03:17
anandreTempan, I have keys, just no discs laying around.  Been moving a lot lately.03:17
seanbrystonejpitts, it lists all my keys03:17
Tempanhipitihop, I dont think virtualbox does any 3d graphics acceleration.03:17
faileasvirtualbox has graphics accelration actually03:18
hipitihopanandre, I've never tried installing widows off iso but I don't think there is any copy-protection and the like so should work03:18

root51hello guys03:18
Tempananandre, you can mount an ISO as a cd/dvd in virtualbox03:18
rifteranandre, on those the only thing you have to make sure is it's the exact same versionincluding sp in order for windows  to acknowledge it if you are using it to install stuff to an existing windows install03:19

jpittsseanbrystone: happens to all of us.03:20
hipitihopI think virtualbox is the best os vm out there at the moment... lets hope Oracle doesn't screw it up03:21
faileashipitihop: its significantly FOSS. hopefully at worst, they can fork03:22
hipitihopTempan, wouldn't you need to mount the iso in linux ? to do the install ?03:22
sec0ndI have three linux distros tripple boot. I'm using grub2. I need a way to manage all of the kernels and initrds. They will periodically change when updated and 2 of the distros are on an encrypted lvm2 luks partition. Every distro has it's own /etc/grub.d/ folder and each of them needs the 40_custom entry to add the encrypted lvm2 distros. Is there a better way to manage this?03:22
Tempanhipitihop, just point the VM to the ISO and have it mount it03:23
hipitihopTempan, that's what I would have thought, no need for daemontools which is a windoze iso mounter afaik03:23
faileaslinux has loopmount anyway03:24
humoiim trying to copy something from ubuntu to windows but it keeps saying i dont have permission. I setup the folder to be shared with all permissions though. :/03:24
hipitihopfaileas, indeed, all that stuff is just out of the box03:24
faileaswhich is a NATIVE way to mount isos. none of that slightly dodgy third party app stuff ;p03:24
zicadasec0nd: the numbers, f.example 40, refer to priority03:24
zicadasec0nd: so one way (of many) would be to control them by pri03:24
jpittsdaemontools is an iso mounter AND a security dodge03:25
zicadaanother, more logical, would be to get more workstations03:25
faileashipitihop: the only thing i 'hate' about linux is how scattered some resources are. But that encourages me to explore ;p03:25

Viking667nope, guess that won't work.03:31
Tempanit changes the file permissions to allow the owner full acces, group and others read and execute premissions03:31
coz_Viking667,  in karmic pulseaudio is more intricatly twined with gnome so my guess is you may have issues  but you can stop the service with sysv-rc-conf03:31

han_bump: is there anyway i can show (or log) all mouse button events? .. my mouse buttons are not working properly, so i would like to see what it sends (im on xubuntu 9.10)03:32
humoiwhat do i put in place of "file"?03:32
humoiTempan, p03:32
Tempanhumoi the name of the file03:32
humoiTempan, there are thousands of files03:32
Tempanhumoi chmod 755 myFile03:33
Viking667The results were:  PulseAudio configured for per-user sessions03:33
coz_Viking667,  however you can restart it under sysv-rc-conf again if there are too many iussues03:33
dj_segfaultMy understanding is that you can't really not use pulseaudio because of a change in the kernel that makes it impossible to access sound from more than one process at a time.  Personally I would like to take pulseaudio out back and shoot it.03:33
Viking667dj_segfault: I want to do worse than that.03:33

Guest98129Why wont linux multi task somethings. For example, If I try to run my update manager concurently with an apt-get install. Why is that?03:36
barcrawleranyone know how I can set default monitor in 9.10 - currently it's defaulting to my svideo out on a ati hd4350 instead of my dvi - both monitors are working fine, I'd just really like to have log in occur on the lcd and not the old commodore 2002 I have hooked up..03:37
dsnydersJordan_U, I've got gconf-editor running (finally).  Any suggestions as to what to look for regarding my monitor display issue?03:37
TempanGuest98129, because only one instance of a update manager can me running at any given time.03:37
Jordan_Udj_segfault, Your understanding is incorrect.03:37
manasCan anyone help me use unicode03:37
dj_segfaultGuest98129: Because they're both trying to access the same database of installed apps.03:37
dsnydersGuest98129, Update and apt-get both access the installed software database.  One would corrupt the other.03:37
Guest98129big deal?03:37
JDSheweyI have a macbook 2,1 and my touchpad is not working after upgrading to 9.10. Does anyone know what might cause this?03:38
dj_segfaultJordan_U: Then please explain03:38
TempanGuest98129, yes, big deal.03:38
TempanGuest98129, no point in running two update managers concurrently.03:38
Viking667dj_segfault: yeah, but it doesn't reset the running program so that it points to the new running pulseaudio. Not fair.03:38
Viking667dj_segfault: anyhow, I suspect I'd better reboot to take my stuff good.03:38
Jordan_Udj_segfault, If removing pulseaudio does cause problems it's not a kernel change that has done it. Current alsa can still handle multiple sound sources just fine.03:39

kevcox1I have a very simple newbie network question....03:56
zicadakevcox1: just ask the question03:56
kevcox1I just setup a new box with Ubuntu Server, Shorewall and webmin.  It is connected to the open Internet and only computers on the same subnet of the ISP can access it.03:57
kevcox1I know it is not Shorewall since I can clear it and get the same results.03:57
zicadakevcox1: not an ubuntu issue, ask the shorewall people03:58
blakkheim!webmin | kevcox103:58
ubottukevcox1: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.03:58
dsnyderskevcox1, can the new box access the internet?03:58
acovrighow do I get a 'Pipe to Program' from evolution to *.bash variable?03:58
kevcox1Yes, the new box can access the Internet03:58
zicadakevcox1: ask shorewall people03:59
dsnyderskevcox1, sound's like everything is set up properly then.03:59
kevcox1Since I can clear Shorewall it is not a shorewall issue03:59
jribacovrig: you should probably rephrase your question, because it doesn't make much sense to me03:59
kevcox1I stand corrected...I cannot ping google.com03:59

dj_segfaultJordan_U: Is that dude on the pulse project?04:01
bcgrown-afk[Adam|Linux]: it's probably at ~/.wine/drive_c04:01
kevcox1Only computers on the same Subnet of the ISP it is connected to can access it via SSH, Webmin, etc. with Shorewall up or down.04:01
jribacovrig: I don't use evolution but I am guessing that you would just read from stdin in your script04:01
zicadakevcox1: did you see what i was saying earlier ?04:01
acovrigby using var=`cat`?04:02
dsnyderskevcox1, that's how most people set things up.  What's the actual problem?04:02
zicadakevcox1: when i said to you that its not an ubuntu issue04:02
[Adam|Linux]but the question is then, where would ~/.wine reside?04:02
kevcox1Yes, I can ping IPs but not DNS names so I need to fix my resolve file04:02
=== bcgrown-afk is now known as bcgrown
bcgrown[Adam|Linux]: ~ is shorthand for your home directory04:02

Jordan_Udj_segfault, He is *the* pulseaudio developer. I don't think there are any other major contributors ( though I may be wrong )04:02
bcgrown[Adam|Linux]: it will be autocompleted by bash.    so /home/adamlinux/.wine/drive_c04:03
morph_hello can someone explain this to me: http://github.com/entrope/linux-magicmouse/blob/master/INSTALL04:03
kevcox1When you CLEAR shorewall it takes their app out of the picture so it is not Shorewall04:03

GeekSquidLuke_: start by booting with a live disk .. you cannot copy an entire partition while it is mounted.. use gparted ... in gparted you can right click on a partition and copy it to another04:08
Luke_ok thanks I'll try that04:08
hipitihopdj_segfault, yes... I actually had a install on a flash drive but ran out of space, so I copied the partition and even resized when I copied it back to a larger flash drive04:09

quietoneViking667: what is the advantage of no pulse audio?04:12
morph_why u use patch -p1 > name.patch04:12
morph_then it asks04:12
GeekSquidquietone: pulseaudio has problems with some cards .. on cards that have trouble falling back to ALSA often cures problems04:13
hipitihopdj_segfault, and even if you have problems initialy to boot it, you should be able to mount it, correct references etc and away you go.... anway way simple for me, but then I did not move locations, usb flash drive to another usb flash drive in same spot04:13
dsnydersGeekSquid, I kind of suspect a driver mismatch somewhere along the line.  I started with the nvidia driver and switched unsuccessfully to nv.  Then had all sorts of problems.  I've switch back to nvidia.  Everything works except gnome.04:13
dj_segfaulthipitihop: Yeah, I didn't think you can do that.  It should be easy enough to fix fstab, but what about /dev?04:13
quietoneGeekSquid: thank you. Guess that is not me as all is well except internal mic.04:14

dsnydersbrjann, turns out that my gnome is corrupted.  KDE and XFCE work just fine, but when I use Gnome, it switches to a resolution my monitor can't handle.05:01

switch10_Losha: haha I have to figure out a way to get rsync to backup my bad file names05:02
brjanndsnyders, ew, good luck. just as much fun as windows regedit :)05:02
jmp_teratorn, I worked on vim but I think it is quite tough to compile a multi files project , u have to make ur own make file05:02
jmp_teratorn, how do u proceed05:02
josephgbrjann: sorry, the /etc/wgetrc must have been purged, when i got rid of wget a few weeks ago, after i found axel.05:02
teratorni just wish someone would fully integrate VIM inside of an IDE... every vi/vim emulation that I've tried (e.g. ViEmu under Visual Studio) leaves way too much to be desired.. it frustrates me to no end having to work with a half-assed vi-emulation (but its better than nothing ;)05:02
brjannjosephg, no problem :)05:03
teratornjmp_: yes, if you're writing C or C++ you should have a Makefile05:03
teratornjmp_: they are not hard to create...05:03
dsnydersbrjann, Yes.  So it seems.  Fortunately there isn't a lot of cryptic hex values running all through it.05:03
greezmunkeyI want to install emacs, but there are a lot of choices. For a rank beginner which should I choose? I'm thinking emacs22-gtk (9.10, gnome)05:03
brjanndsnyders, you know, if that's the case... one thing you might try doing just for kicks is creating a brand new user and trying to log into gnome05:03
josephgbut, i still don't remember using --no-clobber, till a few weeks ago. but as you say, there really is not reason not to make it the default.05:04
jmp_teratorn, not hard but quite long05:04
brjanndsnyders, if for whatever reason *your* gnome settings are borked, the ones installed from the skeleton shouldn't be.05:04
dsnydersbrjann, there's an idea.  I was considering doing an uninstall/reinstall of gnome, but your idea is somewhat less drastic.05:04
Guest98129ok, now I have just completed updating ubuntu. Its asking me what I would like to do about the grub. I had a problem before where the grub completely screwed up and I had to reinstall the original version of ubuntu from a cdrom to get the grub working again. so what do I pick here?05:04
devendrathere is no bash_profile in ubuntu to set environmental variables permanently.05:05
jmp_teratorn, so no need of a make file on python05:05
teratornjmp_: nope05:05
brjanndsnyders, and a reinstall probably wouldn't help you since it wouldn't touch settings in your home directory05:05
alcalahow do I backup all software dependecies ??05:05
josephgGuest98129: if all you need is to read some files from the .iso or to boot it, you don't need any other additional software.05:05
airtonixdoes ubuntu fast user switcher create a file somewhere to indicate which one of the logged in users is the currently active session ?05:05
teratornjmp_: you will create a python "package" (a dir containing an initially empty __init__.py file) for your app05:06
dsnydersbrjann, Hmmm.... maybe I can just remove the gnome settings in my home directory and let gnome re-create them.05:06
Guest98129Its this Debcong, I can keep the local verssion currently installed, or install the package maintainers version, amongst other options.05:06
teratornjmp_: then, as a sibling to the package dir you have a 'bin' folder with an executable "script", "myapplication"05:06
brjanndsnyders, you could do that, and I've done it before too. but remember that application settings get stored in there too. I'd try the new user approach just to see if there's any benefit in doing that05:07
Guest98129I am triple booting if that means anything to this05:07
greezmunkeyYikes! 65.6 MB to install emacs! It better be good :)05:07

teratorninside the myapplication file you do a standard shebang line "#!/usr/bin/python2.6" (or so), then you do something like "from mypackage import main; main.run()"05:08

psilikonI am looking for an updated VDPAU + mplayer howto. Google only shows me stuff a year old.05:35
hipitihopGeekSquid, excellent news, thanks.. I just wonder now why on that PPA link it says (new version available) which I assume the normal one in the repository05:36
t3rm1n4lplease see the nfs install error05:36
Dr_Willispsilikon:  Hmm. the mplayer i got from medibuntu I think had vdpau as an option.05:36
JrodDCxOK , i didnt know what he was trying to do issuing random commands , carry on05:36
blakkheimt3rm1n4l: use aptitude instead of apt-get05:36
psilikonDr_Willis, oh really :)05:36
IdleOnet3rm1n4l: configure nfs-common05:37
becker_11Dr_Willis: I get a Device partition expected, not making filesystem on entire device /dev/sdc (use -I to override) error05:37
Dr_Willispsilikon:  i may be wrong. I cant double check right now. testing 10.04 on th nebook Im sure it DID have it in there.. lets see05:37
t3rm1n4ltried all that05:37
t3rm1n4lnow way05:37
GeekSquidhipitihop: technically the ppa is an older version ... but it is a working version ... Do you Care?05:37
sircrazyis 10.04 using usplash and grub2, like 9.10?05:38
t3rm1n4lit says dependecny problems - leaving unconfigugred05:38
brjannbecker_11, you need to specify the partition, e.g. /dev/sdc# where # is a number05:38
Dr_Willispsilikon:  VDPAU is a option in player on 10.04 :)05:38
psilikonThat would explain why the "building from svn" are all dated a year ago05:38
GeekSquidhipitihop: don't answer that, it was a stupid question05:38
sircrazyer xsplash*05:38
JrodDCxDr_Willis:  Do yourself a favor and use VLC its better then Mplayer now .05:38
becker_11brjann: aaahhh I see thanks05:38
rwwsircrazy: 10.04 uses grub2, and uses plymouth instead of *splash05:38
blakkheimJrodDCx: i strongly disagree05:38
rwwsircrazy: questions and discussion of it belong in #ubuntu+1, by the way :)05:38
sircrazyrww, ty05:38
Dr_WillisJrodDCx:  i use whatever i feel like at the time.  had a few issues with vlc with some videos that mplayer handled file.. and visa-versa aslso05:39

airtonixhow do i sniff dbus events from the terminal ?05:39
t3rm1n4lplease help05:39
t3rm1n4lregarding nfs server05:39
Dr_Willisbecker_11:  do a sudo fdisk -l /dev/sda and see what partitons exist05:39
brjannbecker_11, without knowing the layout of your disks i'm uncomfortable telling you which partition to format ;)05:39
JrodDCxairtonix:  Use the command : dmesg05:39
psilikonI was using VLC but even with my i7 1080p playback was using 40% cpu!05:39
jureis there any linux-native utility which successfully decodes WMA *3* ?05:39
hipitihopGeekSquid, I understand you point though, it is the first version which both works and can make inbound/outbound calls... but since I did fiddle with teh sip.conf and dialplan to get it running properly with the latest which I had compiled... I'm now left wondering if infact the rc2 would now work anyway05:40
Dr_Willist3rm1n4l:  all i really did was follow the !nfs wiki page. took me just a few min. You may need to update/upgrade and try installing it again05:40
t3rm1n4li looked at it05:40
Dr_Willispsilikon:  yep thats the issues i had with hidef videos05:40
t3rm1n4lno use05:40
blakkheimpsilikon: mplayer doesn't have that problem. vlc only uses one cpu core ;(05:40
becker_11brjann: yeah no drama I'm looking into it now05:40
psilikonblakkheim, but does mplayer take advantage of vdpau? I want my GPU to do all the work05:41
hipitihopGeekSquid, but I'm best to send time learning asterisk and its features rather then woeeing05:41
blakkheimpsilikon: yes05:41
al_why does this crontab file start every line with 0 ? http://pastebin.com/4jCsVGUS05:41
JrodDCxAre you on the latest release  of VLC? because on my amd 64 it works fine... both cpus and gpu05:41
al_its not ubuntu based btw05:41
dj_segfaultgrkblood13:  go to medibuntu.org05:41
becker_11brjann: just by the by I would love a convert tool that takes ntfs and converts to ext3 for my terrabyte external05:41
ardchoilleal_: because allof those commands start at the top of the hour05:42
becker_11brjann: without data loss05:42
psilikonblakkheim, does mplayer do that out of the box? Do I need to compile from source?05:42
brjannbecker_11, I doubt anything exists that converts ntfs to ext3 in-place05:42
blakkheimpsilikon: compile from source for multithreaded decoding05:42
psilikonhipitihop, you learning asterisk?05:42
becker_11brjann: yeah I'm pretty sure it doesn't I've looked before05:43
blakkheimpsilikon: but vdpau is a built in option in newer builds (dont know about ubuntu's since i dont use it)05:43
dj_segfaultal_: The first column is the minutes.  min hour day month dayofweek command05:43
brjannbecker_11, depending on how much free space you have on the disk, you may be able to use gparted to shrink the ntfs partition, create an ext3 partition in the free space, and then move stuff over05:44
al_dj_segfault: hmm It didnt quote paste the whole file, look at http://pastebin.com/Gx7PSNSc05:45
al_the first colum has a header of "#"05:45
hipitihoppsilikon, yes I am why ?05:45

philippeHi everyone, I'm about to try Fedora 12 on my desktop and i'd like to know if I should use the 32 or 64 bits version. My processor is Core 2 Duo Dual Core (x86-64).05:46
Jordan_Uphilippe, This is #ubuntu.05:46
ardchoilleFriend of mine has dual-boot Ubuntu and Fedora. She wants to know if she canuse one of the fedora apps in ubuntu (apps spanning partitions?)05:46

psilikonhipitihop, i love asterisk. Have you checked out TFOT 2nd edition. I found it used on amazon about 5 months ago for ~ $5. Helped out a lot!05:47
rwwphilippe: if they're anything like us, though, you can use either.05:47
ardchoilleal_: yes, and all at the top of the hour05:47
brjannardchoille, probably not. installed libraries needed for dependencies, etc may be different05:47
becker_11ok back05:47
ardchoillebrjann: Ah, very good point05:47
becker_11That was weird my 1gb usb stick had 4 partitions on it05:47
al_ardchoille: actually the 1,2,3,4,5,6 is in the dow colum? so they are only run once each week on seperate days by the look?05:48

hipitihoppsilikon, yes I started to read the online version ... and I have a home theater pc it's an ION Atom 330 , i.e. dual core running mythtv (also awesome).. but mainly sitting idle, so I have asterisk isntalled ther05:50
psilikonhipitihop, nice. Chapter 5 of tfot... then I was set. I have since built a few pbxes. One I used for a local business and earned some decent money. Check out pbx in a flash also.05:52

AMAGHi, I'm having a rough time with my PCs today.  I had to sacrifice my desktop machine, which was setup for my 30" monitor, so I could have a functioning power supply for my server and database.05:59

Vendettaofficially tomorrow06:00
morph_whats that do?06:00
becker_11AMAG: that sux06:00
domoshould /etc/hostname be www.foo.com or www ?06:00
blakkheimmorph_: searches the files in the package for the binary name (what you will put in your startup item)06:00
Vendettaactually, now its officially today06:00
AMAGIt's been about 3 years since I setup the desktop and I can't remember the steps I went through to get the 30" screen working.  My question is basically, will it be easier to repeat those steps again on my old 6.10 installation, or should I go ahead and upgrade to the latest ubuntu?06:00
morph_morph@morph-ubuntu:~$ dpkg -S gmail-notify | grep bin06:01
morph_gmail-notify: /usr/bin/gmail-notify06:01
blakkheimmorph_: i'm 99% sure you just need to use "/usr/bin/gmail-notify"06:01
blakkheimmorph_: yeah06:01
becker_11AMAG: 6.10 isn't supported any longer AFAIK so upgrading would be your best bet06:01
Andys^AMAG: if its a recent-ish nvidia card, chances are strong it'll just Work06:01
MilitantPotatoAMAG: upgrading has lots of advantages, aside from likely being easier (provided you have a seperate /home at the least)06:01
AMAGbecker_11:I am pretty glad the server was not fried, because the power supply started smoking, and then sparks started shooting out of it inside of the case.  So if I just lose a few hours and a $100 new PSU I will be happy. :)06:01
blakkheimmorph_: just put "gmail-notify" in the "command" section of the startup item and it should work06:01
morph_thanks man06:01
morph_i dont put /usr/bin/gmail-notify ?06:01

becker_11brjann: for some reason it had 4 and the table was all screwed up06:05
dj_segfaultinfid: Try typing "stty sane"06:06
becker_11brjann: it had a copy of crunchbang on it via unetbootin that I used to install my netbook last time06:06
LavaEagleHello, alsa drivers were removed while Iwas trying tochange something and while doing so I messed up.  I now cannot get any sound.  Any chance I can reinstall old drivers somehow?06:06
MilitantPotatoLavaEagle: purge configs in synaptic?06:08
grkblood13how do i find out what version of mplayer i have06:08
infiddj_segfault: didnt fix it06:08
brjannbecker_11, okay, so you deleted all the partitions, created a new one spanning the whole drive of type 'c'?06:08
AMAGThis image will have a "livecd" environment built-in as well as the installer, right?  ubuntu-9.10-desktop-amd64.iso06:09
MilitantPotatoAMAG: Yep.06:09
dj_segfaultinfid: What terminal program are you using?  gnome-terminal?06:09
MilitantPotatoAMAG: more then 3gb of ram on your machine?06:09
brjannbecker_11, partition type c is "W95 FAT32 (LBA)"06:09
dsnydersgrkblood13, mplayer -v06:09
becker_11brjann: not to used to fdisk but I created a new partition of type primary and used suod mkfs.vfat /dev/sdc106:09
infiddj_segfault: tilda right now. let me see if it does it in gnome-term06:09
AMAGThe one thing I remember from 3 years ago, booting up in the live environment, customizing X a little, and then realizing that I did not complete the installation.  :D06:09
brjannbecker_11, but did you change the partition type?06:10
AMAGNo, 2G of memory06:10
infiddj_segfault: does it in gnome-terminal too06:10
becker_11brjann: don't think so06:10
grkblood13dsnyders, didnt work06:10

LavaEagle@MilitantPotato: attempting now06:10
MilitantPotatoAMAG: I'd recommend getting the 32 bit.06:10
brjannbecker_11, that might be a problem06:10
dsnydersgrkblood13, It should be one of the first lines06:10
brjannbecker_11, this drive is currently /dev/sdc, right?06:10
MilitantPotatoAMAG: 64bit is a pain if it's not needed (less than 3.2gb of memory)06:11
infiddj_segfault: and i'm using teh same bashrc i am using on 2 other ubuntu systems. the only difference with this one is it's a netbook06:11
becker_11brjann: yeah fdisk is showing it as Id 83 type linux06:11
ectropyhow do I store then call bash script variables? example: read NAME echo $NAME //// end of file ///// new file: echo $NAME06:11
dsnydersgrkblood13, try mplayer --version.06:11
AMAGFor flash and such?  I don't really need much fluff.  I only use it for a ton of terminals, emacs, and mozilla with no flash.  And evolution I guess.  This has all been pretty suitable for me for years.06:11
brjannbecker_11, okay, type t<enter> 1<enter> c<enter> and then look at them again06:11

bullgard[PulseAudio On] My Ubuntu 9.10 computer reboots with Mic1 on although I shut it down with Mic2 active. How can I make my Ubuntu starting with Mic2 asserted?06:12
infidectropy: export them?06:12
MilitantPotatoAMAG: Ah, nevermind.  Yea, mainly for flash, 64bit has other issues, but they tend to be pretty specific06:12
dj_segfaultinfid: I'm guessing it's not reporting the actual terminal geometry right due to the screen.  Not sure.  Try maximizing the terminal window and see if it does the same thing.06:12
AMAGI guess I'll burn both CDs just in case06:12
infiddj_segfault: they are maximized06:12
MilitantPotatoAMAG: If you have a spare 1gig flash drive that's the fastest route06:12
infiddj_segfault: and echo $TERM says 'xterm'06:13
becker_11brjann: fat12 but also got dos compat flag is not set msg06:13
brjannbecker_11, fat12?06:13
dj_segfaultinfid: try "export PS1=:"06:13
becker_11brjann: yeah id 1 system fat1206:13
AMAGI have a windows xp computer on my desk also, so I use that for word/excel/visio/web browser06:13
AMAGI tried for years to give up having a windows machine and I just can't live without microsoft office :(06:14
infiddj_segfault: well that makes it wrap like i want hwoever i dont want my PS1 prompt to just consist of a semi-colon06:14
brjannbecker_11, oh, sorry. type t<enter> c<enter> and check again06:14
brjannbecker_11, i guess since there's only one partition it didn't ask you for the partition number :)06:14
MilitantPotatoAMAG: I run one for video games, dual boot with kubuntu06:14
becker_11brjann: yeah that's it now it's Id c system W95 FAT32 (LBA)06:14
dsnydersAMAG, pendrivelinux.org has some great distros that fit on a flash drive.  I know what you mean about office.  I've grown addicted to OneNote06:14
dj_segfaultinfid: that's fine, but at least you know it's something in PS1 that's causing the problem.  You can figure out what you want and set it.06:15
becker_11brjann: I guess I need to do a W now to write it all06:15
brjannbecker_11, great. now w<enter> to write the table to the disk, and q<enter> to quit06:15
brjannbecker_11, you got it06:15
AMAGalthough if I had to choose a computer to do without for a day, or a week, I would do without the windows one06:15
infiddj_segfault: true. well i am setting PS1 in a special way but it works fine on my other 2 ubuntu machines that have larger screens. not sure why though06:16
AMAGI have flash drives but I might as well make the CDs; I am not really confident my mainboard is aware of bootable USB media06:16
mewayerr I am installing server addition and I received an error something about could not install apt 0_0 this is going to bad after the installation is done right? >_< :(06:16
brjannbecker_11, once you're back at the prompt (assuming no errors from fdisk) go ahead and    mkfs.vfat /dev/sdc1   again06:16

infiddj_segfault: ok thanks for getting me this far06:17
MilitantPotatobrjann: why not have him use gparted?06:18
mewaydoes sun virtualbox support that?06:18
dsnydersMilitantPotato, it's easier to talk someone through a partition and reformat on the command line than to use gui tools.06:18
MilitantPotatodsnyders: true, fair point06:18
brjannMilitantPotato, mainly because he's having problems, and this way I know exactly what's going on06:18
MilitantPotatobrjann: gotcha, was just curious06:19
brjannMilitantPotato, no problem. sometimes I forget the GUI utilities exist, to be honest ;)06:19

Guest96272On Linux, you need to have "packet socket" support enabled in your kernel; see the "Packet socket" item in the Linux "Configure.help" file. Your distribution might enable this by default in the kernel.06:53
Guest96272sorry mt06:53
GeekSquidvince: removing pulseaudio will cause it to fall back to ALSA .. which often is a reasonable fix for people06:53

greezmunkeyGuest96272, did you run Wireshark as root, e.g. sudo wireshark ??06:55
mgmuscarihey... i'm trying to compile libjpeg-8 on amd64, but i need to also compile the 32 bit version... anybody know how i can force the architecture?06:55
leopardabhi_nav: Well whats you priorities?06:55
vinceGeekSquid: Ok, The problem I have with that is that Pulseaudio mostly works under this system right now.  I had pulseaudio under 9.04 as well however it was much buggier.  When i tired to remove it I remember it basicly removed a ton of stuff that made the cure worse than the disease.  I would like to keep pulseaudio in place and just bypass it for these particular apps if possible06:55
mgmuscarivince: what's your PA problem?06:56
GeekSquidGuest96272: wireshark needs permissions to access the eth0 or wlan0 ... I have never been able to run wireshark as anything but sudo (I know it isn't reccommended) yet somehow it works06:56
leopardabhi_nav: Are you a Desktop End-User, server administrator, or plain super user? Maybe a purist or a Windows convert?06:56
CoziYes ok, so how do I get nautilus to have a column view, much like dolphin on kde has?06:56
abhi_navleopard: I am totaly confused. I dont know how to select which distro?06:56
vinceIs there anyway I can just have these particular Apps go to Alsa Directly?06:56

abhi_navCozi: Ubuntu 9.0406:57
leopardabhi_nav: Do you have a GUI preference?06:57
vinceOf course If I could tweek the app or Pulseaudio to remove the lag, that would be ideal06:57
ultraparadigmyeah, my shortcut keys aren't responding either06:57
mgmuscarivince: yeah, i could see that happening... the problem is i think that alsa is not controlling the audio device, pulseaudio is06:57
abhi_navleopard: I like gnome (I dont like kde)06:58
mgmuscarivince: i don't think you're going to be able to change that, but you can try using some of the different plugins for PA06:58
mgmuscarivince: i usually have good luck with the PA alsa plugin06:58

GeekSquidpedrocr: and this is not the place to discuss Lucid ... /join #ubuntu+106:59

quickardis there a specific tool I should use, or just use ubuntu07:09
Guest96272whats the terminal command to set dumpcap to run as root?07:09
arandIndustrial: You edit /etc/default/grub which propagates to /boot/grub/grub.cfg which is the new equivalent of menu.lst07:09
MilitantPotatoquickard: do you need to do any resizing?07:09

petsoundssate, what error did you get?07:10
satepetsounds:  Could you download that theme, and walk me step by step m8?07:10
MilitantPotatoquickard: unless you have an empty partition set aside, you can't do a true install.  You can try an install via Wubi in windows, though.  That doesn't require re-partitioning.07:11
GeekSquidultraparadigm: Preferences>Appearence> Visual Effects Tab .. should be set to something other than none07:11
petsoundssate, i have that themes installed :)07:11
leopardabhi_nav: Are  you looking for a simple distro, or one that sees its users as they "know what they are doing"?07:11
mgmuscariquickard: you need to resize your windows partition to make room for linux on the drive. windows vista and windows 7 can both resize the partitions that they are sitting on, i believe07:11
satepetsounds:  How did you do it?07:11
abhi_navleopard: simple one07:11
ultraparadigmoh, I thought so to, but when it's not running I can't move or rezise my windows.  And it's called Avant Window Manager.  But it could be the Compiz that was actually controling the window behavior07:11
ultraparadigmYou know that makes more sence07:11
satepetsounds: Normally it comes as gz file or w.e, and i drag to themes and it installs, but this is a zip file07:11
mgmuscariit's Avant Window Navigator - i am using it too :)07:12

mgmuscarimorph_: you could always try building your own kernel... but if you're not much of a hacker i wouldn't recommend it07:17
leopardabhi_nav: Oops, i forgot to mention; most distro, including Ubuntu, have a LiveCD you can try out without making any changes to the computer. This may aide you in your decision process.07:17

leopardabhi_nav: Linux is not a forced thing. If you don't like it, you don't have to have it. Say, I tried KDE and hated it, but I didn't want GNOME either...all you have to do is add another desktop environment! All you need to do is tell Linux to pick 'that one' and go for it.

Guest88093leopard: how can i login through open ports07:34
GeekSquidGuest37204: only one of many irc servers, and while you may be able to try to connect via ssh to the server, it won't let you in .. because there is an encrypted keyfile for logging into that server. which you don't have ... and besides you wouldn't be logging on to the irc server, just the bash prompt of the server ... It will never work though ... you are not a freenode operator or administrator.. they are the only ones who can login to the freenode07:34
skippuff54oasa: rhythmbox is default for the GNOME desktop in ubuntu, amarok is a KDE app but it still works awesome in GNOME07:34

skippuff54oasa: yeah a couple of things - you should be able to close the playlist window so that the collection window there on the left opens across the screen07:52
skippuff54oasa: another suggestion would be to organize your collection so that amarok understands artist/album info a little better, then it cleans up that collection window on the left nicely07:53

jdvwhen you "test" the audio input in gstreamer, would you expect to normally be able to hear your voice through the speakers during the test?09:04

ultraparadigmDr_Willis, funny thing is that the program when I installed it asked me where my flash was, and I pointed it to the same flash .so  that firefox uses, and it works in the client, just not in firefox.09:05
Dr_WillisGuest55708:  becuase flash devs test it more on windows.so they fix the bugs there.09:05

skippuff54rabbit1 what is your hangup again?09:07
Quan-TimeGuest55708: flash in ubuntu works fine, IF you set it up properly..09:07
ultraparadigmbut probably means that the program has an issue with your processor, or conflicting with the type09:07

skippuff54rabbit1, you are trying to configure apache-php right?09:07

alzamabarHi is it possible to use a unix shortcut to edit the last output from a command? E.g. I just ran a grep which came back with a single result. Next I'd like to vi the file expressed by that result, but without having to type the full file name. I though there was something like vim $! or !vim or something similar...09:12

skippuff54rabbit1: i figured you would complete your due diligence before installing anything. but i think you would be safe to use audacious09:12
ikoniaalzamabar: set -o vim09:12
ikoniaalzamabar: then use the vim editor / nagivation keys to nagivate around the command09:13
ikoniaalzamabar: or - just push the up arrow in bash and edit the command09:13
rabbit1xmms2 better than amarok ?09:13
skippuff54rabbit1: ive used amarok09:13
skippuff54amarok is resource heavy09:13

alzamabarikonia: What happened was: grep foo bar.txt09:14
Guest55708how long have you been using ubuntu09:14
skippuff54rabbit1: i agree, i think audacious is the supported incarnation of the xmms project09:14
ikoniaalzamabar: yes, you can't get the results output back09:15
alzamabarikonia: This came back with /home/user/foo/bar/log.txt09:15
ikoniaalzamabar: I understand09:15
alzamabarikonia: Then I would like a shortcut to edit /home/user/foo/bar/log.txt instead of typing vim /home/... I'd like something like !vim09:15
skippuff54rabbit1: leavin winamp behind was like movin outta town and sayin farewell to an old friend09:15
ikoniaalzamabar: you're not going to get that09:15
rabbit1skippuff54: biggest prob is of the codecs, hope xmms2 wont have that prob09:15
skippuff54rabbit1: you might also like gxine09:16
alzamabarikonia: An alternative would be to pass it to xargs, but then I don't know if the grep returned anything at all09:16

=== toto is now known as Guest89261
icerootspokes: sorry, it was su - username  instead of su username10:41
rwwjakiw: correct. Run `echo '#!/bin/sh' > sudo tee /var/lib/dpkg/info/irssi.postrm` . That should fix up that file. Once you do that, try `sudo apt-get -f install` again and pastebin its output again.10:41

icerootspokes: can you post the output of ls -l /path/to/your/file10:46
rwwjakiw: yeah, it's the same error message. What's happening is that it's trying to remove irssi, but can't run the post-removal script for some reason. Since it's in the middle of doing that, it doesn't want to do anything else at the same time.10:46
rwwso debconf and probably other things won't install.10:47

rwwmeco: I'll update the page to say that, since it's confusing :)11:07

mecorww: I added the HArdy Partner repository to Synaptic, but it still can't find Opera11:09
rwwjakiw: no problem. You might want to check that you have the "ubuntu-standard" and "ubuntu-minimal" packages install. They install other packages (like debconf) that you really should have installed, and since debconf wasn't installed for some reason, it'd be worth checking.11:09

fedora_newbred, i was using gedit, but read somewhere that bluefish the the tag highlighting, but it doesnt11:15

=== simon_ is now known as Guest15795

pw-toxic_its important, because i have >3 GB ram11:17
rwwpw-toxic_: Core 2 Duos can run 32-bit or 64-bit. If you specifically want 64-bit, you want the AMD64 one.11:17

spokesiceroot: I'm trying to install software under a specific user name. The software does not support installing under root. How do I install the software under a non-root user and not have it fail telling me that the user does not have permissions to install to a specified directory?11:18
m0arspokes: Permissions on the dir?11:20
spokesm0ar: the installation program is creating the directory11:21
Dr_Willisspokes:  what software?11:21
m0arspokes: permissions on the dir above?11:21
spokesDr_Willis: Oracle web tier utilities11:22
spokesm0ar: all directories will be created at installation time11:22
Dr_Willisspokes:  so its a binary installer? or source? or what?11:22
m0arWhat's the difference between 'update-manager -d' and 'apt-get dist-upgrade'?  u-m want's to install 50MB's more than dist-upgrade11:23
spokesDr_Willis: the install script is a bash script11:23
rwwm0ar: "update-manager -d" is supported because it's coded to avoid possible upgrade problems. apt-get dist-upgrade is not supported as a method for upgrading from one Ubuntu version to another.11:23
iAmerikanshould I upgrade to 10.4 or what?11:24
rwwiAmerikan: no, it isn't ready yet11:24
iAmerikanHow long should I wait?11:24
rwwm0ar: in practise, I've noticed that update-manager also reinstalls ubuntu-desktop and any recommends of it when you use it.11:24
rwwiAmerikan: until it's released at the end of April11:24
Dr_Willisspokes:   check the script out and the progrema homepage/forums there maybe some option you need to use.11:24
spokesDr_Willis: the installer uses Java to execute the installation11:24
m0arrww: Oh, since I use the Lucid alpha, dist-upgrade is fine?11:24
Dr_Willisspokes:  so basically its installing premade binaries some where.11:25
redoh and fedora_newb, you could always use the [-] on the left side to minimize the div11:25
redfedora_newb: that way you would see matching tag easily :)11:25
iAmerikanrww: I wouldn't have asked or anything, it's just the first time I've seen it in the upgrade mgr11:25
rwwm0ar: If you're already on Lucid, you don't need to dist-upgrade at all. The "alpha" and "beta" milestones are identical to what you have with normal updates.11:25
fedora_newbred, still want the tag highlight :P11:25
rwwiAmerikan: yeah, -d will prompt you to install development releases. You shouldn't do this, because they aren't supported and are broken.11:25
redme too :)11:26
rwwm0ar: in future, by the way, Lucid questions go in #ubuntu+1.11:26
m0arrww: I upgraded to lucid a while ago, did my last apt-get upgrade a few days ago. Now, dist-upgrade installed 250MB's for me11:26
m0arrww: Yeah, sure11:26
spokesDr_Willis: That is correct11:26
m0arrww: So it does update and install apckages11:26
iAmerikanrww: thanks11:26
spokesDr_Willis: I specify the directory and it creates the directory and then begins the installation11:26
rwwm0ar: I imagine the difference in this case is that it's installing extra recommends from ubuntu-desktop or something like that.11:26
m0arrww: What's that? :c11:26
Moral_I accidentally removed the toolbar11:27
Moral_from my terminal how do I get it back, lol.11:27
spokesDr_Willis: I guess I could create the directory ahead of time, but I would like to be able to specify the directory and then the installation create the directories11:27
rwwm0ar: ask in #ubuntu+1, I'm about to go to sleep :\11:28

Dr_Willisspokes:  if its in their home dir. they allready do.11:32
Dr_Willisspokes:  any system dirs.. they do not11:32
spokesDr_Willis: it is not in the home directory. Can I change so it has permissions to create outside of its home directory11:33

TSKGreetings.  I have a question about memory usage.  If I had 4 gig when I installed and had to remove 2 gig of it later due to memory gone bad, leaving me with only 2 gig now, could/would that affect (in a negative way) how efficiently my system uses the 2 gig of memory I have left?11:38
edecaTSK: You'll just have less memory11:39
edecaTSK: Do you have swap?11:39
soiconTSK: the system memory no longer operates in dual channel mode  , maybe slower11:40
TSKedeca: Yes indeed, I do have swap.  However, it appears as if my system is running out of memory entirely to easily (causing it to have to swap much harder than seems reasonable for having 2 gig of RAM on a Linux box).11:40
TSK*too easily11:41

TSKedeca: Well, it's a bit more'n $10 to grab another 2 gig of RAM to replace what was lost, but aye.  It's looking as though I'm likely going to have to grab more RAM, as it was generally almost NEVER touching swap at all when I had 4Gig, even when I did run VMs.  :)11:44
edecaweb5|org|ua: Which bit are you having trouble with?  You need to edit the samba config to allow access to it11:44

gordonjcpam I supposed to travel back in time to 2000 and buy a CD writer, or something?12:20
OerHeksgordonjcp, you have to download the .iso first, then use unetbootin to make the usbstick bootable and transfer the files. verry easy12:20
gordonjcpI don't even know where to look to buy a CD writer12:20

KentrelHi, the past two days my computer is off when I come home. I think it might be a powercut or something. Whats the best way to find out what time that happened?12:21
gordonjcpOerHeks: I have unetbootin, I have the iso, I ran unetbootin, the disk is *not bootable*12:21
frankS2Kentrel: cat /var/log/messages.*12:21
gordonjcpfrankS2: computer shops12:21
OerHeksa .iso file is an 1:1 copy of a completed cd, unetbootin can handle the format12:21
gordonjcpOerHeks: or rather, it boots, but hangs immediately with a black screen12:21
Kentrelfrank, that file ends with a lot of binary data12:21
gordonjcpOerHeks: I know what an .iso is12:22

awbHi, I'm running Ubuntu Server 9.10 and it cannot download from the repositeries. I have had the same problem on my PC running Ubuntu 9.10 and I discovered when I changed where to download from in software sources from 'Server in United Kingdom' to 'Main Server' everything started to work (ie. Download). How would I change the setting in Ubuntu Server to 'Main Server'?12:30
