_ting__I tried to run the apt-get -f install but nothing00:29
mclark1128I also should point out that my /boot partition is essentially blank, except for any files grub added to the /boot/grub directory00:29
mclark1128Which I think is another major factor in the problem I'm having00:29
NewWorld_ting__:  Try install wine first?00:29
MindVirusSolar_Flare: I want to do something. You're telling me to do something else that will accomplish what I want but also will cause a huge list of unneeded side-effects.00:29
vianocturna85Mindvirus: this is a stab in the dark here, but have you tried...just to test, restarting the pc...i know this isnt windows, but it wouldnt hurt00:29
MindVirusSolar_Flare: So, stop saying it please.00:29
mclark1128I tried to basically copy the files from the /boot directory on the livecd to the one on my hdd, but I don't think it's the same.00:29

Loshamclark1128: 9.10 uses grub2. I don't think you can use it to install a legacy grub. Didn't you say you were trying to install grub1 ?00:30

vianocturna85Mindvirus: It just makes no sense, its not in your startup, killing doesnt work...00:31
Solar_FlareMindVirus: write a bash script, that kills maximus at startup. last solution.00:31
dsnydersMindVirus, If you go to a terminal and do service maximus status, what happens?00:31
MindVirusSolar_Flare: Look. Killing maximus makes it open again, so something is monitoring the process.00:31
NewWorldmclark1128:  root (hd?,?) <<< where first '?' is the number of the hard drive (start counting at 0) and the second '?' is the number of partition (start counting at 0)00:31
MindVirusSolar_Flare: That means that I can change something in the process monitor.00:31

BluesKaj-Laptopmclark1128, chainloading lists windows or OSs on different partitions on your HDD00:50
dsnydersmclark1128, I'm not sure, but I think chainloading is what you do when you are loading  something that does it's own boot process.00:50
Sensivamclark1128 I don't know, usually when chainloading Windows OSs bootloader we do it that way00:50

PingFloydmclark1128: only one bootloader can use the mbr, so if you have a situation where you need to use a different bootloader than the one installed in the mbr, that is where chainloading comes in.  The bootloader using the mbr passes the boot onto a bootloader installed elsewhere like to on installed in a partition for instance.00:55
ronnieNewWorld All I have is mp3 and a couple avi files00:55
lucas_first of all i cant boot cd's cause my cd drive is broken00:55
m0arI can't see why I'm not able to activate the propretairy driver in Hardware Drivers?  It just says "This driver is activated but nor currently in use" Any tips?00:56
airtonixlucas_, use another computer00:56
Purpley1I dont need to recover a partition neccesarily I just want some files off it00:56
jdeloachCould someone look over my xorg.0.log for me? I think there is a problem with it trying to do two monitors on one output.00:56
lucas_so you suggest i make a new bootable usb drive with a live cd?00:56
stdiseasexmms2 -> audio only, client-sever architecture, fine GUIs: esperanza, lxmusic...00:56
airtonixlucas_, mainly because you'll end up using software thats supported here in this channel00:56
mclark1128so now I just need to figure out where "x" is on my (hd0, x) menu entry00:56
NewWorldronnie:  I'm not sure :/ maybe you'll have to examine it's configuration file.00:56
NewWorldmclark1128:  Count the partitions, they start at 0. For example in Gparted.00:57
NewWorldmclark1128:  In Gpartedd, from left to right.00:57
PingFloydmclark1128: sda1 would be (hd0,0) for instance00:57
lucas_thats a point, but if it doesnt let me load my usb drive now (it just throws me to my grub where nothing works anymore), it probably wont let me load the usb drive with something else on it either00:57

NewWorldlucas_:  You have to change your boot order... when you start the computer. Look for an 'Fxx' shortcut, where x is a digit. And press it to let you boot from USB first00:58

Sensivamclark1128 then you are good to go, Good luck! :D00:59
stdiseasemclark1128, I'm sure it becomes (hd0,3) in grub2, grub-legacy may be different00:59

I'm frustrated & have no idea what to do next. I'm almost considering upgrading to 9.10 just to see if that will fix it.        Is it01:16

sekyourboxHello, I have 2 interfaces that i need to connect to. (ath0, and eth1). I'm currently going through on ath0, and when i add eth0 to the routing table, it says unknown host.. Any help please. Thanks01:50
coz_Izinucs,  it can yes01:50
coz_Izinucs,  hold on01:50
brjannElrox: you're telling him to copy his authorized_keys file to another user's directory. that's really not a good idea.01:50
Izinucscoz_: thanks.. holding :)01:50
neezerElrox, brjann, Thanks for all the help. I need to take a while to read some more and figure this out...I always get screwed up on who has the private key, and who has the public key. Thank you for the help. I really do appreciate it.01:50
coz_Izinucs,  in terminal type     regionset01:51
Izinucscoz_: is that also a way of checking what it's set for?01:51
Pirate-Kinghow do you give permissions to a drive?01:51
Elroxbrjann, isnt that what he's asking how to do? or is this from his box to a server?01:51

brjannneezer: no problem. here's some reading material for you :) https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH/OpenSSH/Keys01:52
Elroxbrjann, on his own box?, if so then whats the prob? if not then he wont have perms to do it?01:52

coz_Izinucs,  which region do you need?01:53
neezerbrjann, thanks for the link. it is used to be one of my bookmarks until I got my ssh up and running smoothly. now I just need to get his going.01:53
brjannElrox: neezer copying his own authorized_keys file into ryan's ssh directory means a) neezer would be allowed to log in as ryan using neezer's private key and b) ryan would still not be able to log in.01:54
NewWorldjdeloach:  Can you run 'Xorg -scanpci' without X server running?01:54
Izinucscoz_: well for various reasons I think that my dvd drive region has been "reset" to something other than the U.S... with libdvdcss2 installed I still can't play dvd's and it won't mount blank dvd's but will cd's..01:54
coz_Izinucs,  which media player?01:54
Izinucscoz_: doesn't matter.. mostly with k3b trying to burn and almost any player you can think of I've thrown at it.01:55
Izinucscoz_: so does regionset simply prompt you for the region you want to set? or does it tell you what it's set for now before making a change?01:56
Elroxbrjann, you are absolutely right, my apologies, i was only looking at the file cp/perms part of it, ty01:56
jdeloachNewWorld: My computer is not recognizing the "-scanpci" flag.01:57
coz_Izinucs,  as I recal it prompts for you to set  dvd region01:57

dr3mrohello ,i am concerned about viruses i installed rkhunter and chkrootkit and my system is clean , do i need to install clamav ????01:57
coz_dr3mro,  it is unlikely you will ge01:58
coz_dr3mro,  get one01:58
coz_dr3mro,  however I do use rkhunter on occasion just to be sure01:58
NewWorldjdeloach:  Phhewwwww there you go: http://pastebin.com/prBdsxt501:58
Izinucscoz_: I tried it and without a cd/dvd in the drive it error's out.. I guess it looks at the dvd and determins what the dvd is set for.01:58
dr3mrocoz_, i install alot of deb files out side rpositories01:58
coz_dr3mro,  most of the viruses and things are geared towards server installations01:58
mattgyverHey guys, is there anyway that i can image one of my disks within a software raid?01:58
dr3mrocoz_, so clamav not neccessary01:59
coz_dr3mro, ` so your desktop should be fairly safe01:59
dr3mrocoz_, i think ubuntu is gaining ground and soon we will see alot of viruses for linux01:59
coz_dr3mro,  not real necessary however if you feel more confortatble with an anti virus  applicationi then install clamav  along with one of its front end gui's01:59
dr3mrocoz_, we should be prepared01:59
jdeloachNewWorld: Thanks, copying it now!02:00
dr3mrocoz_, i am new to linux world but prefer CLI02:00
coz_dr3mro,  eventually it will be necessary but most likely not for 5 years or so02:00
dr3mrocoz_, much customizable and faster02:00
coz_dr3mro,  the advantage of course is that clamav is free02:00
dr3mrocoz_, i think after 2 to 3 moths only after lucid release :) i hope02:00
NewWorldlol OT guys02:01
PoisonSerpentHi all.02:01
coz_dr3mro,  well its more difficutl to create and impliment a virus on linux  so I give it longer than that02:01
dr3mrocoz_, thank you02:01
coz_dr3mro,  no problem02:01
dr3mroi have another Q?02:02
dr3mrodoes any one try to replace metacity with openbox ?02:02
coz_dr3mro,  you can install openbox easily on ubuntu however you will NOT be able to run compiz with openbox  if you like compiz02:03
coz_dr3mro,  I prefer fluxbox  but openbox is cool too02:03

gescapeKingsy101, you can try to open terminal and then $sudo tail -f /var/log/messages > errorfile.txt :)02:11
Kingsy101ok hang on02:11
ZykoticK9gescape, to allow all other users to use your new ext4 partition you have to change the permissions on the mount point "sudo chmod ugo+rwx /where/it/gets/mounted" and then everyone will be able to use it.02:12
gescapeKingsy101, if terminal will close off itself you should have file ready with error :)02:12
jimi_MilitantPotato, It's in lsusb but it doesnt show t as a disk, how can i mount it?02:12
MilitantPotatojimi_: is this the 1tb western digital with DRM?02:12
Kingsy101gescape - that command is giving me a permission denied02:12
Kingsy101even with the sudo02:12
NewWorldZykoticK9:  gescape I'm not sure that's the best way to go about it. Shouldn't the 'users' mount option be envoked instead?02:13

waddai want to reinstall flash -- can anyone tell me if synaptic completely purges flash or if i need to do something else?02:13
jimi_MilitantPotato, it's a 1TB wd yes02:13
gescapeKingsy101, don't forget about sudo at the beginning02:13
MilitantPotatojimi_: WD started using drives with DRM that block certain media files (great stuff) the firmware likely won't work on linux, I'm guessing.02:13
gescapeKingsy101, and you will need to type your password first time ;)02:13
lookhai all, um i am trying to delete a partition from my hard drive but gparted wont let me because its /dev/sdb5 and it says i need to unmount is so i used Terminal and typed "umount /dev/sdb5" and it said that is was already unmounted02:13
NewWorldwadda:  did you chekc 'Completely Remove'?02:13
MilitantPotatojimi_: it started with a 1TB WD drive a few months back, that MAY be the issue02:13
jimi_MilitantPotato,  is there a fix?02:14
waddaNewWorld, yep02:14
jdeloachNewWorld: Didn't work, sorry.02:14
Kingsy101gescape - yea I know I am typing sudo then the command and its giving me a permission denied02:14
gescapeNewWorld, I tried users option for mount, but I think it works only if in fstab02:14
Kingsy101its not even asking for the password02:14
MilitantPotatojimi_: no clue, I never bought one because of it, I'm just guessing that may be the issue, would be worth googling.02:14

ZykoticK9WetWired, i remember having that "issue", i don't think i ever figured it out... sorry02:35
lyraeOut_Cold, but www is a directory of Shared, which is the actual HD. so im guessing we have to set Shared to be mounted as www-data02:35

lyraeOut_Cold, how do i find out which sd* (ie, SDC, SDB, SDA, etc) Shared is?02:40
Out_Coldlyrae, use 'mount'02:40
cheetos_How to install ralink chipset driver?02:40
lyraeOut_Cold, i'd like to add it to fstab so it gets mounted automatically02:40
Gadudarkstar1: you'll need to pick something other than / as the mount point. You need to pick an empty folder02:40
thomas_hey, is there anyone who can help me? i am having a problem with ggzBoard.02:40

Out_Colddarkstar1, which is why i'm pushing you onto lyrae's issue, we are going to mount a new drive in fstab which is what you want to do..02:42
lyraeOut_Cold, when i do umount /media/Shared, i get: /media/Shared is not in the fstab (and you are not root)02:42
Out_Coldlyrae, did you run the mount command?02:42
lyraeOut_Cold, give me 1 sec02:42

lyraeOut_Cold, i unmounted Shared. but i can't mount because i don't know if Shared is sdb1, or sdc, or sda, etc02:43
lyraehow do i find that out?02:43
Out_Coldlyrae, this line was found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fstab    /dev/hda1       /mnt/WinXP      ntfs-3g      quiet,defaults,locale=en_US.utf8,umask=00 002:43
Out_Coldlyrae, ok.. do  sudo fdisk -l02:44
Out_Coldlyrae, and look for the ntfs disk02:44
geniiubuntu uses scsi layer so no hda#02:44
Out_Colddarkstar1, you should check out that link also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fstab02:44
lyraeOut_Cold, thanks. it's sda02:44
Out_Colddarkstar1, let me know if you need more assistance02:44
Out_Coldlyrae, it will be sda###02:45
Myke_113Hi, I had my Ubuntu (Wubi based install) die today after doing updates, and now it only boots as far as Grub2...  can anyone tell me how to fix this?  I found some info in the forums to try to boot into old kernels, but I couldn't get the computer to boot.02:45
lyraeOut_Cold, do you want me now to mount it via terminal or add line to fstab?02:45
Out_Coldso i'll assume that this was the original windows partition and you added linux?02:45
Out_Coldlyrae, sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Shared02:46
lyraeOut_Cold, no, this is a 3rd hard drive, where i keep music/videos/photos. no OS in it02:46
Out_Coldlyrae, can i see your sudo fdisk -l? can you pastebin?02:46
olimis it possible to bring an ncurses process to the foreground that i didnt bg or screen? (rtorrent)02:46
lyraeOut_Cold, http://pastebin.ca/182345302:47
darkstar1lyrae:  use gparted to view your hard drive information02:47
darkstar1lyrae: such as the /sd*02:47
Myke_113Yes I added Linux using Wubi02:47
Out_Colddarkstar1, fdisk actually provides an easier view of them all..02:47
lyraedarkstar1, thank you02:47
darkstar1Out_Cold: never used fdisk02:48
Out_Coldlyrae, yea it looks like sda102:48
Traveler3hello, I am wondering if anyone knows how to use diff and patch to backup the changes to a directory?02:48
Four2zerohey all im having trouble with allowing samba to give me access into the computer to view all the shared folders from my windows pc's, how do i get to allow this.? when i click on the icon server(windows xp) it says its opening "server" but then it tells me "unable to mount location" Failed to retrieve share list from server.02:48
lyraeOut_Cold, it does. but i get this erro when mounting: fuse: failed to access mountpoint /media/Shared: No such file or directory02:48
coz_Traveler3,  I have done it so few times  I couldnt help with confidence...but there are many sites you can find and also go to ##linux ..I am sure someone there is skilled at it02:49
Out_Coldlyrae, ok sorry.. do mkdir /media/Shared THEN sudo mount /dev/sda1 /media/Shared02:49
brjannTraveler3: is this something you only want to do once? or something you want done regularly?02:49
cheetos_How to install ralink chipset driver?02:49
Out_Coldlyrae, may need to sudo mkdir02:49
Traveler3I have tryed diff -Nrw orig new > package.diff and then patch -p0 < package.diff and patch -p1 < package.diff, Neather work :(02:49
lyraeOut_Cold, yay :) worked. it's mounted02:50
lyraeOut_Cold, fstab is still the same though02:50
=== Traveler3 is now known as timholum
Out_Coldlyrae, ok so sudo nano or gedit /etc/fstab02:50
SwollenEyesdamn it, I hate to ask such a newb question, but how do you close a channel?02:50
Out_Coldlyrae, it won't change till we tell it to02:51
brjannSwollenEyes: /part02:51
lyraeOut_Cold, ok. fstab is open02:51

darkstar1Out_Cold:  I'm not seeing my Linux drive listed in FStab (the sdb*) just the windows one (sda*) is this normal?02:52
geniiOut_Cold: gedit should use gksudo and not sudo02:52
=== rO_ot|AFK is now known as rO_ot
lyraegenii, he told me to use nano02:53
Out_Coldso on a new line at the bottom, we'll write /dev/sda1       /media/Shared    ntfs-3g    quiet,defaults,locale=en_US.utf8,umask=000     0      002:53
lyraebut i did use gedit with gksudo02:53
Out_Coldlyrae, i did mention both but i use nano so i forget about gksu sometimes02:53
cheetos_How do I install a Ralink Chipset driver?02:53
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)02:53
geniilyrae: sudo is for commandline, gksudo is for graphical apps (kdesudo if KDE desktop)02:54
lyraeOut_Cold, ok. line added. do i reboot to test?02:54
Out_Coldlyrae, yes try it out... if it fails to load or you get into a recovery shell for some reason, go back into /etc/fstab and # the line out02:54
lyraeOut_Cold, ok. but what in this line tells to mount it as www-data? or is it the umask that's gonna allow apache to access it?02:55
Out_Coldlyrae, haven't gotten that far yet :p02:55
thomas_How do I fix a program that won't open when double clicked in the "Applications" menu?02:55
Out_Colddarkstar1, what was wrong?02:56
DocPlatypusquick question... will any USB to VGA/HDMI adapter work under Ubuntu at all? is there a standard for these things or are the drivers different for each one?02:56
DocPlatypusalready tried Google, nothing useful in the results.02:57
Out_ColdDocPlatypus, check ubuntu hardware support?02:57
archlichis there a way to have network manager reconnect my vpn when it disconnects02:57
ubottuFor lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection02:57
darkstar1Out_Cold:  a sec pls.. I'm getting confusing info with what gpartrd is showing me and what's in fstab02:57
Out_Colddarkstar1, fstab is only used at boot-up and during mounting... it's not what is actually on your system02:58
lyrae_Out_Cold, it works. mounted automatically and apache is accessing it! maaaany thanks!02:58
Out_Coldlyrae, you can send your check in the mail..02:58
ertzwhat is the best way to access windows files on diff partition from linux?02:59
darkstar1Out_Cold:  Ok. But in order to make sure a partition is mounted at boot time I need to add the partition info there right?02:59
Out_Colddarkstar1, gparted reads all disks connected to your machine, regardless if it's in fstab02:59
Out_Colddarkstar1, yes to automagically mount, there needs to be an entry in fstab03:00
Out_Coldertz, mount the partition and go explore03:00
lyrae_Out_Cold, just wrote a check for $500. where do i send it to?03:00

RPSHello Guys, I'm still working toward resolution on my sound card issue. I ran a lot of commands from the Trouble Shooting site; removing & reinstalling the sound card drivers & others, but nothing would work, so I was advised to visit the HDAintel Sound How to website & I ran the first command that has me completely baffled. It gave me a command to find out exactly what sound card I have. Uhhh I ran the command & got different info03:01
RPSthan I got from the command I used earlier. First time it said I had an HDAintel card, but after running the command it said nothing about the brand & listed this info: Codec: SigmaTel STAC920003:01
RPSCodec: Conexant ID 2bfa03:01
FloodBot1RPS: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.03:01
freeaks_hi there, i need help with a matrox g550 graphic card, basicaly it works, but i have two monitors connected on 1 dvi port, using a splitter cable .. so both screens display the same thing like if it was mirrored ... how can i get both monitor to work independently ?03:01
RPSI'm hoping someone can take me on for a few minutes... I try to stay focused & keep up!03:03
Out_Coldfreeaks_, not sure if you can use xrandr for that but it would be the command you want to look at to do side by side03:03
DocPlatypusokay, doesn't mention USB display adapters at all03:03
Out_ColdRPS, i would bud but sound and graphics are not my forte..03:03
DocPlatypusmay need to borrow one of these and just see what it says when plugged into an Ubuntu box03:04
thomas_A program doesn't open when I click on it in the "Applications" menu, what should I do?03:04
darkstar1Out_Cold: the # lines are for comments right?03:04
Out_Colddarkstar1, yes... with the exception of #! all lines that begin with # are ignored03:04

thomas_Out_cold, it hangs, and nothing comes up, no errors or anything.03:05
darolulucio: hola, si quieres hablar español escribe /join #ubuntu-es03:06
Out_Coldfreeaks_, i would think so... using the splitter i'm not sure you can do that03:06
Out_Coldthomas_, what program?03:06
Out_Coldthomas_, might be an issue with the program it's self... check into support from the developers03:06
DocPlatypusand again... it's a case of figure out what $%&# chip is inside the thing03:07
geniiDocPlatypus: So basically the sisusbvga driver, with one of the adapters listed03:07
thomas_out_cold, well it was working before, but i ran something like delete unused packages or something, and the person who told me to do that said it might cause unwanted side-effects03:07
geniiDocPlatypus: lsusb   should give something to start working with03:08
DocPlatypusgenii: this is pre-purchase research03:08
Out_Coldthomas_, well then i recommend you sudo apt-get remove gzzBoard then reinstall03:08

geniiDocPlatypus: Aah, OK.03:09
Out_Coldwolfjb, ping the servers then ping something from web..03:09
thomas_Out_cold, i've tried that, but oddly enough, it stays in the menu, but the thumbnail is gone, i've even tried synaptic to fix broken packages but that doesn;t work either03:09
Out_Coldthomas_, try apt-get remove --purge03:10
Out_Coldthomas_, try apt-get remove --purge gzzBoard03:10
thomas_Out_cold, returns "Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them"03:10
Out_Coldthen use autoremove :p03:11

thomas_Out_cold, now reinstall?03:12
wolfjbbut I can surf it with a web browser03:12
freeaks_this won't help much but, at least this work like that on windows03:12
Out_Coldfreeaks_, i don't think you can do off of one connection... i may be wrong but it's my opinion03:12
freeaks_i see ..03:12
Out_Coldwell then i'm wrong03:12
Out_Coldmight work03:12
Out_Coldi've never done with one connection03:12
Out_Coldthomas_, yes try again03:12
freeaks_i wonder if i need to use a special driver or some other tool ? i've just installed ubuntu on this machine03:13
symptomDoes anyone know how minimizing a window will be handled on Lucid with the new Light theme?03:13
freeaks_i see other ppl here they all use windows, using the same hardware, so i can see it works for them03:13
Out_Coldwolfjb, maybe firewall or porrly set up routing/03:13
thomas_Out_cold, ok, now it's just doing the same thing it was before, hangs, no errors or messages03:14
wolfjbOut_Cold, ah, could be, I'm in a hotel - I'll look into it03:14
Out_Coldthomas_, what is it supposed to do?03:14

keeenis it possible to put special characters in the LUKS Ubuntu system encryption password?03:16
Out_Coldthomas_, i dunno... my guess is that what ever command you ran, broke the gzz dependancies.. not too sure how to fix above what we did03:16
Parogarcan anyone please help me, I kinda screwed my PC up installing ubuntu'03:16
darolumartin__: do you see a little speaker icon on the top-right corner?03:17
martin__darolu yes03:17
ParogarI am taking an OS class in school, so I downloaded ubuntu, installed it on a spare partition, and everything worked fine. the only problem, is that now my windows 7 is dead. Says Hal.dll is corrupte03:17
keeenParogar, really?03:18
SrayahuParogar, you might also ask in #Linux and #Windows03:18
ejvgood riddance, just stick with ubuntu03:18
Srayahuejv, =D03:18
ParogarSo... that's it?03:18
Parogarit's gone?03:18
keeenejv, linux is the best but its hard to play some games on linux03:18
darolumartin__: right click on it, and go to sound preferences; play with the settings, check that you are using the appropriate channel (digital/analog) and that there is nothing muted03:18
SrayahuParogar, Nah, it's not. So you installed Ubuntu and it boots?03:18
brand0nwhats the command to make a directory writabe03:18
ejvof course its not gone, mount it and get your files03:18
* ejv facepalms03:19
brand0nchdod +x 775 or something03:19
martin__darolu: I did that03:19
Srayahubrand0n, chmod03:19
GibbyIs there a way to make a video stream say from zoneminder, show up as my screen saver?03:19
ParogarYes, I can get into ubuntu, but I can no longer get into Windows 703:19
brand0nyea but how do i use it Srayhu03:19
mattgyverI have a software RAID 1 on my server that i would like to image, is there a way to do that?03:19
keeenis it possible to put special characters in the LUKS Ubuntu system encryption password?03:19
ejvmattgyver: man dd03:19
ParogarI tried booting from each hard drive, and I just keep getting the error that hal.dll is gone or corrupted03:19
Srayahubrand0n, Well, the short answer is just chmod 77703:19
martin__darolu: my "mentor/friend" told me that to get it i need to install the driver03:19
Out_Coldkeeen, try it out... it'll give errors if it cant03:19
brand0nthank you03:19
`mOOse`funny - windows 7 is MUCH faster on my old laptop than ubuntu yet I don't sit here bitching and whining about it or throwing disparaging remarks to guys who have windows screw up their grub03:19
ubottuThe people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines03:19
`mOOse`you guys are unbelievable sometimes03:19
xanguaParogar: well find oput what hal.dll is in a windows channel03:19
cheakoHello, I need some help debugging Upstart.  I don't have any getty!!03:20
ParogarIf I boot fro thhe win7 CD, it doesn't even know that I had a windows 7 installation03:20
ejv!chill pill | `mOOse`03:20
Srayahum00se, please watch your language. This is a PG chat.03:20
ParogarI definitely didn't delete the windows 7 partition03:20
`mOOse`ejv take your own advice, eh03:20
ejvi refuse.03:20
`mOOse`big surprise03:20
keeenOut_Cold, thanks but I'd rather not waste 5 hours encrypting my entire system to find out03:20
ParogarI think what happened is that grub overwrote something and that  won't let me use windows 7 anymore03:20
brand0nsrayahu im in the folder in the terminal03:20
ejvParogar: either repair your MBR with an fdisk /mbr or... setup grub again03:20
brand0nchdmod 777 doesnt work03:20
ParogarI did both03:21
keeenthat's why I'm asking here03:21
brand0nisnt there like +x or something03:21
keeento save a lot of time03:21
SrayahuParogar, unfortunately I don't use Windows. (At all) =( So I don't know what to suggest about a broken .dll (which is a windows file)03:21
ParogarI fixed my mbr several times03:21
LuigiBaiHi, I am using the Remix, but can't get the "User Switch" button on the lock screen03:21
ParogarI don't think it's merely a broken dll03:21
Srayahubrand0n, You're in the directory you're trying to change?03:21
Out_Coldkeeen, try a small partition... it should give you the error immediately when entering the password i would assume03:21
ejvParogar: ok so your OS is corrupted; time to evacuate your files and re-install :)03:21
SrayahuParogar, therein lies the issue - I don't know what I'm talking about concerning Windows.03:21
ParogarI think that the entire mbr has become corrupted, I will probably have to end up formatted, was just hoping not to have to03:21
LuigiBaiI checked .gconf/apps/gnome-screensaver/%gconf.xml and the setting (bool) is TRUE03:21
brand0ni wanna make the directory writable by everyone, or atleast by me03:21
brand0nwithout sudo03:21
Srayahubrand0n, Type this - "cd ." without the quotes.03:22
ParogarI just don't see how installing ubuntu destroyed my entire OS03:22
keeenOut_Cold, thanks03:22
SrayahuParogar, it most likely did not.03:22
ejvParogar: save time from trying to troubleshoot; just mkdir /mnt/fail; mount /dev/sd_() /mnt/fail; and copy ur stuff somewhere03:22
brand0nok done Srayahu03:22
brand0nwhat did that do03:22
Srayahubrand0n, it takes you up to the parent directory03:22
Parogaralright, grabbing the spare drive.03:22
SrayahuNow ls, find the directory's name, and chmod 777 the directory03:22
SrayahuParogar, give me a moment buddy. (Busy)03:22
ejvParogar: quite frankly a broken .dll sounds like diagnostics hell...03:23
ParogarI really like ubuntu, but windows is sadly still the only way to play directx games03:23
LuigiBaiany way to force gnome-screensaver to show a user switch button on Remix?03:23
SrayahuParogar, fail - Linux plays many of the games available on Windows. Including DirectX games.03:23
ParogarI would have migrated to ubuntu a long time ago if not for the fact that my favorite games run best or only on windows03:23
darolumartin__: having that icon dear, usually means the driver is already installed.03:23
seanbrystone_you grow out of games eventually, took me 35 years heh.03:23
ejvif you wanna argue about linux + games ---> #ubuntu-offtopic03:23
Srayahuseanbrystone, fail03:23
ParogarI am aware of that, however I don't get nearly the performance I would get in windows. '03:23
Srayahuejv, thank you03:23
Out_ColdParogar, linux isn't really a gamer's system.... things will change someday though03:24
SrayahuParogar, because you lack the skill to optimize a Linux machine to run said games. I game happily in Linux.03:24
darolumartin__: if you want to check, open a terminal and type: lspci | grep Audio03:24
ParogarI realize that, which is why I was hopinng to use it for everythign else03:24
brand0nok srayhhar03:24
brand0ngot it workin03:24
brand0nthank you very much03:24

seanbrystone_Srayahu, lol yep epic fail03:24
darkstar1Out_Cold: do I now need to add a folder to / so that the partition is mounted there?03:24
thomas_Out_cold, do you know how to fix broken dependencies? i reinstalled all of the ones in the list in synaptic, but i'm getting the same issues03:24
Srayahubrand0n, for future reference you can't chmod a folder while you're in the folder.03:24
brand0nfloodbot, please get off my nuts03:24
brand0nah ok03:24
ParogarSo srayahy you can lplay bad company 2 right now? at the same speed as windows03:24
brand0nthat was my problem then03:24
xanguaParogar: for games better buy a console03:24
Srayahuseanbrystone, They'll pry the controller from my cold, dead hands.03:24

ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!03:25
Out_Colddarkstar1, i thought you wanted it mounted as /03:25
SrayahuParogar, I don't play Bad Company, but give me a disc and some time and I'll get 'er running.03:25
ParogarThat is an unreasonable request03:25
Out_Coldthomas_, try apt-get --build-dep03:25
darkstar1Out_Cold: wouldn't that conflict with my normal / ?03:25
Out_Coldthomas_, try apt-get --build-dep gzzboard03:25
SrayahuParogar, How so?03:25
Out_Colddarkstar1, yes..03:25
ejvSrayahu and Parogar, srsly, #ubuntu-offtopic03:25
ejvjust take it over there...03:25
ParogarSorry, I didn't mean to even bring it up03:25
Srayahuejv, SRSLY, we got your message(s) already. Cool off man03:26
ParogarI just want to save my windows installation03:26
ParogarI think that grub doesn't play nicely with windows 703:26
ejvsrsly people are dense which requires repetition03:26
SrayahuParogar, understandable - now, if you need help I am more than willing to assist you. I do feel bad that your first  Linux experience is turning out to be a bad one.03:26
seanbrystone_The OT police are out in force tonight, shhhh!!!! :)03:26
thomas_Out_cold, still nothing03:26
darkstar1Out_Cold: It's a partition that I want to use for Samba only. That's why I wanted it mounted at boot time03:26
ParogarIt's not linux' fault03:26
geniiParogar: To the contrary, it's Windows 7 that abhors Grub03:26
Srayahuseanbrystone, LOL03:26
Out_ColdSrayahu, in ejv's defence, I am trying to assist others and it's difficult to do so when there is so much idle chatter.03:26
SrayahuOut_Cold, I am as well. Upgrade your brain's processor. >_>03:27
ParogarI don't blame ubuntu. I just want to find a way to get them both running03:27
seanbrystone_vmware ftw03:27
darkstar1Out_Cold: but at the root level03:27
Out_Colddarkstar1, and you really want it mounted in /? then yes.. make a new dir there..03:27
ParogarI very much liked the few hours I spent with ubuntu watching movies, browsing ect, It was also much easier to get runnning and configured thanwindows03:27
darkstar1Out_Cold:  is that a bad idea?03:27
SrayahuParogar, I don't know what to suggest concerning your .dll. However, if you do have to reinstall across the whole machine then make sure you install Windows and then Linux. Windows likes to take over the whole MBR...03:28
LuigiBaiIs there a better place to ask Remix/UNR related questions?03:28

neezerwill a gigabit LAN connection saturate the pci bus? or will I be able to get full capability out of gigabit LAN with a pci card. I don't have pci express in my server.03:28
SrayahuParogar, really, #Windows is the best place to ask concerning your .dll. We can't offer support for that here.03:28
Out_ColdLuigiBai, here would be the 'best' place03:28
ParogarI only had windows 7 installed, and today, I installed ubuntu . Perhaps next time I should install ubuntu FROM within windows03:28
ParogarSince I think that would be a far safer option03:28
ejvLuigiBai: #gnome sorry ;)03:29
ejvwas thinking #gentoo-desktop hahaha03:29
DKcrosshello people, i need help03:29
Srayahu!ask | DKcross03:29
ubottuDKcross: 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. :-)03:29
darkstar1Parogar:  Bad bad BAAD idea and I doubt you could do it that way anyways03:29
ParogarWell I just don't want a repeat of what happened tonight.03:29
SrayahuParogar, Wubi installs are... *cries*03:29
DKcrossSrayahu, wait03:30
cheakoSorry, I'm back.03:30
DKcrosswell. my problem is my 3g modem03:30
DKcrossmount like usb03:30
NetwizI am back for the first time in 1.5 years03:30
RPSI have lived those Wubi blues before & say NO THANKS. Laughing Out Loud03:30
cheakoI have getty's being started in several places, is that bad?03:30
ParogarThese are the EXACT steps I followed. I burned the ubunti image to a disc, booted from it. Selected a partition, using E something 4 (don't remember) and used / as the root. Installed completetly03:30
DKcrossand i  eject device but nothing..03:30
NetwizShould I install Ubuntu 64bit or 32bit?03:30
ejvum... what does your processor support Netwiz ...03:30
thomas_Srayahu, do you have any advice for programs with broken dependencies?03:31
cheakohow can I tell the current run level? I need to verify that it's 2.03:31
trevordoes anyone know how i can install the pixmap theme engine03:31
NetwizAre all the packages teh same and available for both?03:31
SrayahuParogar, ext4 is the file system you're thinking of. Did you do a manual partition scheme or a guided scheme?03:31
cheakosystem-services: /etc/event.d/tty603:31
GibbyIs there a way to make a video stream say from zoneminder, show up as my screen saver?03:31
Parogarcould that be why?03:31
cheakoupstart: /etc/init/tty6.conf03:31
Srayahuthomas_, Well, it depends on the program03:31
cheakoWhat should I do?03:31
NetwizAlso, how is a 7600 GT for Beryl?03:32
SrayahuParogar, Well, possibly03:32
thomas_Srayahu,, it's GGZBoard, from the Ubuntu Software Center03:32
darkstar1Out_Cold: I know I'm bothering you, but is my way a bad idea mounting a partition in root? I'm a Linux born again (Well newbie since I only ever used Unix before this and that was years ago)03:32
Srayahuthomas_, One moment...03:32
cheakoIs this a common problem?03:32
seanbrystone_Netwiz, its no longer beryl, its Compiz or Compiz-Fusion something like that03:32
Srayahuthomas_, You're on 9.10?03:33
Out_Colddarkstar1, not a 'bad' idea, just something i'd never do in practice..03:33
thomas_Srayahu, yes03:33
ParogarI'll try doing it differently next time then03:33
ejvdarkstar1: i'd say no, let's not get in the habit of doing that; i suggest you make a new folder in /media or /mnt and mount your device(s) there...03:33
Srayahuthomas_, run sudo apt-get update and make sure you have all the updates. I don't know what to suggest concerning it. I can try installing it and seeing what happens. One moment?03:33
Parogaron a slightly different note, another problem I am having with Ubuntu, is that when I try and compile using g++ programs I have written in windows. I get tons of parsing errors03:34
NetwizWow.  I cannot belive this is the busiest chat room on freenode03:34
ejvNetwiz: use 64bit, might as well03:34
NetwizWill do03:34
darkstar1Out_Cold: why?? I figure not to have it buried in the usual place will some how help traversing down dir tree03:34
Parogarsomeone said it has to do with end line characters from windows to ubuntu?03:34
ejvgone are the days where 64bit support sucked03:35
SrayahuParogar, concerning installing windows/ubuntu. Unless you know what you're doing I'd recommend just doing a guided install. I know what I'm doing and I usually just do a guided install anyway when I do dual installations, etc.03:35
Out_Colddarkstar1, that's where i'd put them too.. in /media or /mnt... good lessons produce good practice..03:35
Netwizdidn't you used to have an effects room?03:35
Parogarkk thanks will do that this time03:35
SrayahuParogar, you're using gcc?03:35
darkstar1Out_Cold: Ok03:35
Out_Colddarkstar1, you can really put it where ever you want.. but it's just good practice to do it that way..03:35

Parogartrism: Your suggestion worked thanks. it compiled into something called a.out?03:42
Out_Colddarkstar1, there is an online man pages glossary03:42
darkstar1Out_Cold: I kinda figured that out I just want to open the Man options in a nicely formatted viewer to see what options it has03:43
ParogarIs it possible to name it LinkedList.exe or .out or whatever linux uses03:43
von_neumannmrkim: sounds like the resolution is too low and you are only seeing the top-left corner of the login screen03:43
von_neumannmrkim, I've seen similar... Try backing up your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and regenerating it03:43
trismParogar: you can specify the executable name with -o, linux doesn't require a certain extention for executables, just that their permissions are set correctly (+x)03:43
Out_ColdParogar, you can name an mp3 on linux somesong.mp3.avi.mp4.exe.cab if you really wanted to....03:43
mrkimvon, no, resolution looks correct, and from prior checks drivers are ok03:44

holmserI'm trying to set up a mail server, and I can recieve mail perfectly, but when I go to send mail I get this error:  Mar  4 20:10:01 H4ckM3 postfix/smtpd[32548]: NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from m0f0e36d0.tmodns.net[]: 554 5.7.1 <holmser171@gmail.com>: Relay access denied; from=<chris@holmser.net> to=<holmser171@gmail.com> proto=ESMTP helo=<localhost>04:11
Radio-byou can install as many times as you want so long as the hardware doesn't change drastically04:11
port80Parogar: if you need windows, you can also do a trick that i am doing.  I have a PC that is work issued, so I cannot put anything on it but I still wanted Linux for my own use.  So I put it on an external usb drive and boot from that when it is not work; leaving the windows C: drive alone.  works fine.04:11
Red_HamsterXholmser, that's likely greylisting.04:11

Dj-Pilot94Me too04:13
ParogarI don't profess to be the greatest at anything. But if windows is going to massacre my mbr just because I installed ubuntu04:13

Hellhound666could not create java virtual machine.  strange I'm playing a java game online right now04:15
ChogyDanHellhound666: o well, when I had 2 -'s, it gave me that error, but one -, it was fine.  Maybe you could pastebin everything04:15

ubottudarkstar1: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.04:16

Radio-bno one knows the story regardless04:16

port80Parogar: there is a learning curve to Linux, but relax, it gets easier.  Besides, if you use windows, you can use it forever and never learn a thing; but w/ Linux you will learn so much every time you boot... explore, enjoy.04:16
Hellhound666CoggyDan:  I'm going to try and get some things working and I'll let you know when the errors start flyin at me.04:16
Scarra3Ok thx Dj-Pilot9404:16
ParogarI am going to stick with it for quite a bit. Ritlee: I will call them, but you really think they will let me reactive if I explain it?04:17
Hellhound666thanks though04:17
Ritleehehe port80 i agree completely... though take my class and i might get a fchance to show you a thing or two with windows ;) sadly i have to teach it... amy uses it :(04:17
ParogarFrom this whole experience, I gather that the step where I went wrong, was NOT using a guided install. It was at that point that everything broke04:17
darkstar1ubottu: I'm new to the whole linux thing and samba. I'm also determined to fully make the transition this time that's why I'm asking because I'm not even sure I have a gui for configuring it on my system04:17

lyraecould i ask for ffmeg help here? and encoders?04:18

vavoyshHi, I have a question. A few months ago, my computer's sound card started emitting static. I disabled the mike, removed all peripherals, and there was still static. I opened up the case to check the wires, and they appear fine. I have another sound card in my computer, a CA106 Soundblaster, only it doesn't work in ubuntu, even after messing with it in alsamixer. It does work in windows. I went through the huge thread in the fo04:18
vavoyshrums pertaining to sound cards, and it didn't work. Can anyone help me either remove the static or get the other sound card to work? Thank you in advance04:18
mrkimParogar, once you get used to it you'll throw rocks at 704:18
ZykoticK9RPS, to reboot from terminal you can use "sudo shutdown -r now"04:19

ubottuThe linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal or type in it: man intro05:05
rwwRitlee: Install Ubuntu as normal. After installation, restart into the new install, plug in the ethernet cable, and do "sudo apt-get update" then "sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter bcmwl-kernel-source". Restart. It should then work fine.05:05
gopiJon-4: do a fsck05:05
rwwRitlee: the b43-fwcutter package will ask you whether to download firmware during installation. Hit yes, and make sure you leave it connected to the internet all the way through the installation05:05

rick_hey whats up?05:11
mrkimPlease help if you can. Runnin 9.10 (386)  & installed a kernel update this morning, rebooted as instructed. After entering user/pass the ubuntu logo and progress bar vanish leaving only the login screen background on the screen.  Worked with 2 folks here this morning and did verify that my video settings are Ok.  I'm on my second machine which I have also already taken the same update but haven't rebooted yet before getting my other05:13
geniiJon-4: USB drives, or other removeable media like external hard drives... the data you think is written to them is not always immediately written to the physical device yet but waiting in a queue on the computer until so much data gathers and then it is written. When you issue command: sync     it flushes the data residing on the computer to the external storage and writes it making sure no half-written things are existing.05:14
carlllewispopeI have a very dumb question, but i want to know the answer,05:14

guest1Logikos: I never had luck using Gparted to shrink my drive.  Maybe someone else can help a little more06:01
SirVirtuethales: there is an alpha though06:01
SirVirtuethales: gimmie a sec06:01
geniiJon-4: Apologies, helping my roomate get his webcam going under Kubuntu. The idea of using ddrescue is to make a frozen image of the disk, errors and all, into a file which you can mount into a directory, then pluck the important things which remain from there to somewhere you want to save them. So to loop-mount you use the same idea as loopmounting an iso file06:01
SirVirtuethales: I'll find a url06:01
thalesAlpha works for me,06:02
guest1Out of curiosity, anyone here using their iphone in linux?06:02
Jon-4genii: This is done. Is there a way to recover the fragmented files now?06:02
geniiJon-4: eg: sudo mount -t vfat /ddrescueimagefile /some/directory06:02
Ritleetoday, if you dont06:02
Ritleetoday if you don't have samba installed yet ummm let me figure that one out...06:02
Logikosso useing Gparted isnt a good solution06:02
{CR}ronossoreau will i uninstall these?06:02

NetwizzI installed Ubuntu tonight06:03
ZykoticK9thales, get the Alpha daily from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/06:03
geniiJon-4: You can theoretically run fsck.vfat on the mounted directory06:03
NetwizzIt was pretty easy to install; I mus tsay06:03
NetwizzWhen does the new RTM get released?06:03

Jon-4genii: What options should I be looking for?06:03
NetwizzI bet that is a lot more work06:03
SirVirtueZykoticK9: cheers06:03
guest1You have no idea06:03
todayi dont thing so Ritlee06:03
NetwizzI have not even figured out getting everything working on Ubuntu again.  It has been almost 2 years since I last ran it, so it will take some time to get it working perfect, but I think it should be easier this time.06:04
todaybecause, i try to share folder, but not done06:04
Jon-4genii: Oh, and the data is far more important frankly. I can always reformat the drive.06:04
Ritleetoday, i could be wrong but i don't remember doing a config for it, it worked as is06:04
soreau{CR}ronos: You need to remove the nvidia glx driver packages. It should be ok to leave the alias packages installed06:04
geniiJon-4: Generally if you use "-f" on fsck it tries to auto-fix erors06:04
todayit so ok Ritlee :)06:04
guest1Netwizz: It is.  I am in the same boat.  I went back to Linux after a 4 year absence but I only use Windows to print and for iTunes06:04
SirVirtueRitlee: did you get a chance to suss out my error?06:04
todaywhat version linux you use Ritlee?06:05
geniiJon-4: When it finds unlinked files, etc it will usually put them in a dir called lost+found06:05
RitleeSirVirtue, piss what was it again?06:05
Ritleetoday, ubuntu 8.0406:05
Jon-4genii: Says "is a directory" when I attempt to run it on /media/temp [where I mounted the image file with loop-back]06:05
Tecanis the server down for karmic debs ?06:05
SirVirtueRitlee: http://pastebin.com/hg94PMDA06:05

Ritleetoday, dunno i've only spent any surmountable time with 8.0406:07
RitleeSirVirtue, OH06:07
today;-)you wait 10.4 release Ritlee06:08
RitleeSirVirtue, that's beyond me then sounds like apt is bugged06:08
NetwizzYeah it is going to be tough to relearn linux06:08
Ritleetoday, lol hopefully better lookin than 9.'0406:08
geniiJon-4: the fsck.vfat manpage doesn't have some force or override option for loopmount, unfortunately.It wants to work only on partitions, etc. So try to recover from the mounted image what you can, then run the fsck.vfat with -y option on the affected drive and check the lost+found directory there after for recovered files06:09
Ritleeahwell i06:09
Ritleeahwell i'm out, thanx all06:09

Netwizz@bowserinmario3 you need the ndiswrapper unless that changed in the last couple years06:14
alankilaJon-4: x means "fill in what suits for you"06:14
bowserinmario3on the ndiswrapper website they don't mention support for my usb06:15
geniiJon-4: "sdX#" means substitute for "X" the letter of your real drive and for "#" put the partition number: eg: sda3   or so06:15
NetwizzYou really just have to try it06:15
NetwizzI was able to make it work with my old Netgear WG111 or something like that06:15

Jon-4ignore ?, typo06:18
SirVirtueone last try, anyone here an apt-get wizz?06:18
geniiJon-4: Check in the directory on the drive called lost+found. If any unattached files were found it will file them in there. No names though just sequential numbered files so tedious to wade through06:19
NetwizzI have never seen anything in there06:19
Netwizzwhat does NTFS have for Lost and Found?06:19

alankilaArchy1987: now that I am reading through the link, there's a suggestion for karmic, a PPA with package called pulseaudio-equalizer06:40
Cednathan, it seems like PID(number) ... process pipe name06:41
geniiBash23: sudo apt-get install --reinstall gdm06:41
soreaudyess002: Cool. Glad you got it working06:41
dyess002me to  it was looking like a reinstall06:41
Bash23I tried sudo aptitude reinstall gdm06:41
Bash23it didn't work.06:42
alankilaArchy1987: it looks pretty nify from description. Hopefully it does the trick for you.06:42
Cednaif you followed this steps, now you can kill pid numbers. more informations, try man kill06:42
claws_theadmin: thank you :) it worked06:42
theadminCedna: Wouldn't it be a lot simplier to stick to killall when you don't know the exact PID?06:42
Shay27Hello , does someone here specialize in hardware ? I'm going today to buy a new computer, but there is little problem, I'm not hardware wizard :) I have the ability to choose between two types of motherboards : Intel Skyberg DP45SG and Asus p5q pro , can someone recommend me which one is the best ? and which motherboard will support Ubuntu without problems06:42
claws_but is there possible to list all running apps06:43
tehbautanyone know if 9.10 live cd supports gparted and formatting partitions as hfs+ out of the box?06:43
Cednayes. killall commands pretty simple.06:43
NetwizzYou can use the top command06:43
Netwizzor ps06:43
Cednabut i think that was too simple for me..06:43
coz_or install htop06:43
coz_much nicer ^^06:43
Bash23Does anyone have any other tips?06:43
claws_so i do a..  ps list ?06:43
NetwizzThe command is ps06:44
coz_netmind,  yeah sudo apt-get install htop  and the command is   htop06:44
NetwizzGreat, but what is it06:44
geniiBash23: What were you using to try and customize your GDM?06:44
NetwizzI will just look it up hell06:44
theadminNetwizz: A process manager06:44
Cednaotherwise, you can also try like that - ps -ef | grep name | awk '{print $1}' | xargs kill -9 :)06:44
Bash23There is no custon.conf.06:44
coz_systemn monitor of sorts I guess you can call it06:44
NetwizzIt does not look very good06:44
Bash23That's the prob06:44
NetwizzIsn't the built in one better?06:44
coz_Netwizz,  system monitor of sorts  with many options06:45
theadminI dunno.... I assigned "xterm htop" to Ctrl+Shift+Esc lol and it works fine, system monitor is a bit too greedy06:45
Cednayes. system monitor too greedy06:46
coz_Netwizz,  did you check out htop?06:48
theadminWhy when i want to check updates manually i need a password while when it's automatic, it's asking nothing?06:48
coz_theadmin,  it should unless you recently used the terminal with a password and it didnt time out06:49
NetwizzI checked it out06:49
theadmincoz_: I see, yeah, that was true06:49
NetwizzThat video rocks06:49
NetwizzIn traffic court, you have to pay the plantiff to show up!!!06:49
momosanwhat's the ubuntu equivalent of the unstable/testing branch in debian that I can put in my sources.list?06:50
Cednabecause... that was configured in polkit settings, i think.06:50
blakkheimmomosan: there is none06:50
coz_momosan,  well  actually none  unless you want to try the alpha06:50
claws_how can i get more info on the PID's?06:50
Netwizzwith switches06:51
coz_momosan, but then it would be an install of that alpha06:51
rwwubottu: ot | Netwizz06:51
ubottuNetwizz: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics. Thanks!06:51
coz_momosan,  which means what you have would either be upgraded or you would have to clean install the alpha  ubuntu lucid 10.406:51
theadminmomosan: We have free-supported: main, non-free-supported: restricted, free-unsupported: universe, non-free-unsupported: multiverse. And we have backports.06:51

Archy1987alankila, i did Appendix D: System-Wide Equalizer06:53
Archy1987alankila, how to open equalizer graph now?06:53
alankilaArchy1987: what did you do? Are you using karmic? Did you notice the ppa?06:53
phani hi. I have hardy 8.04 version newly installed . When I do apt-get update or upgrade gets segmentation fault error ... So, I have deleted the bin files from /var/cache/apt but still it doesn't work any ideas ?06:54
Archy1987alankila, i use ubuntu (latest)06:54
alankilaArchy1987: well, did you use the solution suggested at "Warning 1: karmic users please do this instead". My fault for not noticing it, but it was the first line and I merely scanned the document based on quick google query to see that someone had indeed done something like this06:54
Hellhound666wow vuze works just fine when I download it from the repositories.  seems java runtime isn't the only dependency requried for it to operate correctly.06:55
=== Podfish is now known as opop
alankilaArchy1987: the ppa contains a full GUI for a global equalizer, allegedly.06:55
coz_Hellhound666,  isnt that using alot of cpu for you?06:55
Archy1987alankila, what is "ppa" ?06:55
Hellhound666coz_: isn't what?06:55
alankilaArchy1987: personal package archive.06:56
coz_Hellhound666,  vuze06:56
Hellhound666coz_:  not really06:56
Archy1987alankila, i am not shure that i understand what to do now06:56
coz_Hellhound666,  even when it was called azureus it use mucho cpu on my systems06:56
alankilaArchy1987: I tried to tell you to use the karmic-specific solution some 15 minutes ago, but it was too late.06:56
alankilaArchy1987: revert your changes, follow the karmic-specific instructions. You'll be a lot happier with that -- assuming it works at all...06:57
Hellhound666coz_:  It works fine on my old 800mhz 300mb ram crap computer.06:57
coz_Hellhound666,  wow mmm   I might try it again although I am using transmission for torrents06:58
theadminWhy are some "cups" always upgrading?06:58

ThunderguyIf I wanted to 'apt-move sync' all my packages to put on a cd, would it be that simple as it was on deb?06:58
coz_Archy1987,  anything turned down or muted?06:58
blakkheimtheadmin: security patches06:58
coz_Archy1987,  pulseaudio sucks on karmic right now06:59
theadminblakkheim: What IS "cups" anyway06:59
Hellhound666check out netbeans if you're into programming too.  It's excellent I think.06:59
blakkheimtheadmin: common unix printing services06:59
theadminHellhound666: I agree on that06:59
theadminblakkheim: ...I don't need that... lol06:59
Cednaapt-cache show cups06:59
Archy1987coz_, nope, nothing is muted06:59
blakkheimtheadmin: then why do you have it?06:59
alankilaArchy1987: yes, you are best off canceling all the modifications & using the karmic-specific solution. Or debugging what went wrong with your changes.06:59
coz_Archy1987,  mmm06:59
blakkheimtheadmin: i use a minimal iso install and only install what i want. the default install is very bloated06:59
theadminblakkheim: Maybe it came defaultly. I don't need empathy either, but i knew i don't need it at least06:59
Hellhound666I was using Dev C++ on windows 7.  Turns out the only way to get Bloodshed Dev C++ on Linux is ordering the cd.  Well I'm know there are other ways but it's the least I could do is buy it.06:59
coz_blakkheim,  mm I might try that next time  sounds like a good idea07:00
alankilaI'm pretty optimistic that even that .asoundrc-based hack can be made to work if you try hard enough, despite it using plughw and not raw hardware access ...07:00
Archy1987coz_,  alankila  i will now revert changes and infor you what happens then07:00
theadminblakkheim: Meh, default is a good enough for me07:00
blakkheimtheadmin: ok, if you can deal with all the bloat and unneeded services and updates that you don't even know what they are07:00
alankilaArchy1987: here's a sneak peek at what you should get with the package:07:01

alankilaArchy1987: sadly, I don't believe Linux will ever get the hordes of popular software, unless it changes its culture in some obvious way.

Logicwaxno one knows that answer, eh08:29
ActionParsnipLogicwax: I joined after the question. Maybe I can help08:30
psycho_oreos<Logicwax> whats the point of partitioning an HDD with a specific partition table, when you can just directly format it?  (mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda)08:30
psycho_oreosI just noticed that08:30
Logicwaxthere we go08:30
Logicwaxbecause i just built another raid5 mdadm array....and im formatting it right now directly.  and i never made a partition table on it....and it works08:31
psycho_oreosand no I don't quite understand the question either, read it the second time08:31
Logicwaxwas wondering if theres a downside to it08:31
Logicwaxor something that will come and bite me in the ass down the road08:31
Logicwaxpsycho_oreos: like say...for example, you have a new HDD..../dev/sdb08:31
psycho_oreosa partition table sets up various limits, and it prevents excessive fragging on one partition. if its a huge partition and it needs to be fsck'ed it will take awhile08:32
ActionParsnipLogicwax: not sure. Both a "normal" partition and the drive as you have it are files in Linux so are equal in that respect08:32
Logicwaxso writing a partition table and THEN formating isnt going to make any difference then just straight direct formating without a table?08:32
ActionParsnipLogicwax: if it works and its performing ok then keep it ;)08:32
psycho_oreosand having separate partitions can possibly safeguard some bad mistakes, like deleting stuff from /boot or /home, etc when they are mounted on different partition08:33
ActionParsnipLogicwax: I've never had a drive with a single partition on it08:33

Gneac0l2e: just make sure they're not part of the group associated with usb drives09:19
brjannadante: you shouldn't need it. once you have gconf-editor open we can see if this fix will work in about 30 seconds09:20

rocketeerbkwwhy can't I create a directory when I'm a member of a group with rwx?09:48
mementomorirocketeerbkw, type the command "id" in the shell you are trying to make the dir and see if you are actually in that group09:49
FireCrotchmementomori: I don't know of any specific docs, but I did check, and you can set each monitor to use a separate X session with nvidia-settings09:49
brjannrocketeerbkw: is the filesystem readonly?09:49
mementomoriFireCrotch, thank you.09:49

rocketeerbkwbrjann: nope09:50
soreaulamefun: For linux, I would say probably not09:50
mementomoriFireCrotch, should I login in both head?09:50
bazhanglamefun, that is outside of the scope of this channel, try #ubuntu-offtopic09:50

FireCrotchmementomori: what do you mean?09:50
mementomoriFireCrotch, if I have two different X sessions at startup will I have two different gdm login screens?09:51
rocketeerbkwbrjann: yes, is it as simple as logging out and in again?09:51
brjannrocketeerbkw: yep09:51
mementomorirocketeerbkw, you can try to cast "su -"09:51
rocketeerbkwbrjann: thx!09:52
brjannrocketeerbkw: no problem :)09:52
FireCrotchmementomori: I don't think you'll have two gdm login screens, but I'll have to defer to someone else on that question, since I don't have my other computer anymore to try it out on09:52

JonathanEllisI am running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron. Yesterday Ubuntu downloaded updates including a kernel update. Grub update asked to replace menu.lst so I clicked on what seemed the most sensible option (replace with package maintainers version). Now Ubuntu wont boot. Grub comes up with Error 11: Unrecognized device string. Now this happened last time I had a kernel update and I fixed it by replacing the uuid entries with /dev/sdxy entries but I think this should09:54
skritezetheroo, google-chrome is pretty cool09:54
FireCrotchmementomori: just one kb and mouse :)09:55
zetherooskrite; is that in the repos?09:55
soreauFireCrotch: Yes, but you wont be able to move windows from one screen to the other09:55
brjannFireCrotch: i'd imagine so. in every respect they're separate screens. they could run different WMs if he wanted09:55

soreausrv: You could unload the wifi driver module09:57

FireCrotchIt shouldn't be your machine's IP, you want the network's address. so if your IP is then you want to use
srvNo, i am asking about /2410:17
FireCrotchsrv: the /24 specifies that the first 24 bits of the IP are the network portion of the IP10:17
mementomorisrv, /24 is the netmask bit10:17
FireCrotchit's equivalent to the subnet mask being
srvwhen i do that i get route: netmask 000000ff doesn't make sense with host route10:17

mementomoriso dont do any changes10:23
srvbut tell me this default gateway thing?10:24
mementomorimaybe I'm getting a bit confused...10:24
srvwhat does it mean10:24
mementomorisrv, the default gateway is the default route your packets will be sent to10:24
FireCrotchsrv: you'll want that route to be added every time the eth0 interface is brought up, so you'll need to add something to /etc/network/interfaces also10:24
mementomorisrv, the default gateway is the default host  your packets will be sent to10:25
srvokay got it10:25
srvsince i have 2 interfaces, i want to send packets to the other one as well, i dont want default gateway10:25

abhi_navcan i play songs (any format) from command prompt? e.g. playing songs from ubuntu server etc (not gui)10:26
