Cogito1729Bodhizazen: well, I haven't yet been successful with unetbootin01:36
pedro3005hi Cogito172901:37
pedro3005what are you attempting?01:37
Cogito1729I'm trying to do a USB-only install of Ubuntu 9.10 on my ps301:37
Cogito1729I've tried a couple different bootloaders..01:38
Cogito1729.. but it's not recognizing the ubuntu installation.01:38
Cogito1729(during bootup, that is, it's not letting my initiate the install from USB)01:39
pedro3005Cogito1729, ah, sorry, don't know anything about ps301:39
Cogito1729pedro3005:  thanks for askin'. Have you any experience preparing ubuntu install on a USB (in general)?01:40
pedro3005Cogito1729, do you want to install ubuntu on the usb or use the usb to install?01:41
Cogito1729Pedro3005: Ideally, the latter01:41
pedro3005Cogito1729, and can you successfully boot from USB?01:42
Cogito1729Pedro3005: I followed the instructions on http://psubuntu.com/wiki/SetupPS3 to prepare the PS3... I can boot into a otheros command line.01:42
Cogito1729From there, I think I have to mount the USB and start the install01:43
Cogito1729But I don't know how to do that.01:43
pedro3005Cogito1729, hm, perhaps this little tool could make things easier for you http://www.netboot.me/01:43
pedro3005but it's a special ubuntu01:44
Cogito1729Pedro3005: Hmm. Let me see if I can find something on a  cross-search on netboot.me and ps301:45
pedro3005Cogito1729, probably not :/ it's not quite that famous01:45
Cogito1729Pedro3005: seems that way. I'd really rather not go with YellowDog over Ubuntu, but it seems there are more ps3-centric resources for YDL.01:46
pedro3005Cogito1729, maybe http://www.netboot.me/my/newconfig01:46
Cogito1729I think this is the same issue: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=124798701:51
pedro3005Cogito1729, try the solution there01:52
Cogito1729pedro3005: I was able to start the install, but ran into an error during hardware detection ... says "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted."02:02
Cogito1729pedro3005: of course, I'm not using an installation cd, I'm using a USB02:02
pedro3005Cogito1729, :/02:02
Cogito1729pedro3005: Haha, yeah, well ... that's the same issue reported by that thread I linked to. I'm making slow progress, but progress.02:03
pedro3005Cogito1729, hope you make it, but I can't be of much help02:03
Cogito1729pedro3005: I appreciate the support, man.02:04
Cogito1729Pedro3005: Do you know what KSDZ is doing in his reply to that thread?02:05
Cogito1729He's using "Gujin".02:05
pedro3005Cogito1729, I don't know what Gujin is02:05
Cogito1729pedro3005: okay, thanks.02:06
Cogito1729Hmm, maybe grub2 would work: http://rww.dreamwidth.org/3100.html02:26

ShadowKnightHey, i was wondering how does the other os thing work on the ps3? is it worth it?04:02
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: I'm trying that out now.04:06
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: Xbuntu 9.1004:07
ShadowKnighthmmm okay then let me know how it goes im curious how that works04:08
ShadowKnighti wanted to back up my ps3 before doing it but i cant do it on my external hard drive.04:08
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: Why can't you backup? HD too small?04:08
ShadowKnightno it has way more than enough space i just cant seem to make it work. its a western digital mybook essential04:09
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: if you plug it into your ps3, can you see it from the XMB?04:10
ShadowKnightnope nothing at all from what i know let me double check04:10
Cogito1729Check your video / music menus. It should show up there if it's in a compatible format.04:10
ShadowKnightno its not up there. does that mean its not a compatible format? any way to make it so?04:11
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: Sure, you could reformat it. You'd lose all the data on there, though.04:12
ShadowKnightdamn wow that sucks actually, any other way? i dont think i have enough space on my comp for what is in there04:13
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: Do you have another HD or a USB key?04:14
ShadowKnightnope none of that.04:15
ShadowKnightI have about 400+gigs on that and i would have been able to put it on my computer but i partitioned the drive to install linux. my biggest usb is just 4gb04:15

ShadowKnighti have no idea to be honest. i have read it is FAT32? but not too sure04:50
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: yes, that's correct.04:50
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: But you'll have to reformat your drive.04:50
Cogito1729ShadowKnight: How much is onyour ps3? If you just need to backup your gamedata and setting, and not the media, you could use your 4gb flash key04:51

abhi_navperhaps, what?16:01

abhi_navSilver_Fox_ hmm16:04
ghostofmybrain_is there a way to copy a file to two directories at the same time instead of recopying it?16:09
abhi_navyah some one asked16:09
pedro3005abhi_nav, so answer it :P16:10
abhi_navghostofmybrain_ as per my knowledge you can copy multiple source, but to single destination16:11
abhi_navpedro3005: :D16:11
pedro3005ghostofmybrain_, hm.... well if you just want it all in one line you could use &&16:11
pedro3005cp a /path/ && cp a /another/path16:11
ghostofmybrain_that's what I wanted, all in one line. Thanks16:11
geirhaYou can define a function to do it. 2cp() { cp "$1" "$2" && cp "$1" "$3"; }16:13
geirhaThen, 2cp file /path /another/path16:14
ghostofmybrain_I'm not sure how to define a function. just put that in the command ien?16:15
geirhaYes. You can put it at the end of  ~/.bashrc to make it permanent16:15
geirhaShould make that function more safe first though.16:17
geirhaYou can't do 2cp * /path /other/path for instance16:17
geirhaThat'll overwrite files16:17
geirha2cp() { local dest n=$#; if ((n < 3)); then echo "Too few args"; return 1; fi; dest=( "${@: -2}" ); set -- "${@:1:n-2}"; echo cp "$@" "${dest[0]}" && echo cp "$@" "${dest[1]}"; }16:30
geirhaThere. That one should handle globs16:31
ghostofmybrain_cool deal thanks16:31
nigelbgeirha: that was fast work :)16:31
geirhaOh, I left two echos in there, so it will only print the cp commands, not run them.16:33
geirhaIf you paste that into a terminal, then run "type 2cp", it will show the function nicely identented, so it'll be easier to see what it does :)16:34
ghostofmybrain_I keep trying to kill this process and it won't ever end17:10
Silver_Fox_What are you trying to kill ghostofmybrain_  ?17:10
Silver_Fox_What is it ?17:11
ghostofmybrain_a command line browser17:11
ghostofmybrain_internet browser17:11
Silver_Fox_try:  killall lynx17:11
nigelbghostofmybrain_: ctrl c?17:11
ghostofmybrain_killall lynx didn't work17:12
Silver_Fox_Have you tried:  ALT + F2 and call the program "xkill" then click on the bad program ?17:15
ghostofmybrain_let me install that real quick...17:16
ghostofmybrain_xkill: unable to open display ""17:16
Silver_Fox_Run ps -aef .  Find the process ID17:16
abhinavghostofmybrain_: lynx ? try control c twice ?17:16
Silver_Fox_Then run:  kill -9 $processID17:17
abhinavghostofmybrain_: lynx (the browser) needs to consecutive cntrl-c's to quit17:17
ghostofmybrain_abhinav: that doesn't do anything17:17
ghostofmybrain_ah, kill -9 worked!17:18
abhinavghostofmybrain_: as Silver_Fox_ mentioned, or killall --regexp lynx17:18
ghostofmybrain_thanks to both fo you :)17:18
Silver_Fox_A little strange that killall failed.17:19
Silver_Fox_Did it through any kind of error from terminal ?17:19
ghostofmybrain_no, it didn't have any error17:20
ghostofmybrain_it simply didn't kill the prodess17:20
Silver_Fox_Okay,  thank you.17:21

ghostofmybrain_so I'm reading this tutorial,and I need to do "tar xfz" to something. What exactly am I doing? the "tar" is basically executing the tar file, right? what is the xfz?22:23
pedro3005ghostofmybrain_, I think that extracts a tar file22:23
pedro3005 -x, --extract, --get22:24
pedro3005           extract files from an archive22:24
pedro3005-f, --file ARCHIVE22:24
pedro3005           use archive file or device ARCHIVE22:24
pedro3005     -Z, --compress, --uncompress22:24
pedro3005           filter the archive through compress22:24
ghostofmybrain_ahhh, cool.22:25
geirhaThat's the wrong "Z" though. It's lowercase z (which filters through gzip instead of compress)22:28
pedro3005geirha, yes sorry :/22:29
geirhaThe version of GNU tar in Ubuntu though, detects compressions automatically, so you don't need the z.   tar xf file.tar.gz  is enough.22:30

celthunderLMAlt, is your hdmi cable your outbound sound default/what your program is set to use?22:48
romulus_i must choose a server because of its geographic place no ?22:49
romulus_maybe there is a guide i should read22:49
romulus_my questions are very classical i guess22:49
pedro3005romulus_, no, you choose a server because of the channels in it22:50
romulus_thanks for your help22:51
ghostofmybrainhow do I copy multiple files to one directory?22:54
celthunderghostofmybrain, cp <anypattern that matches the files> <dir>22:55
pedro3005hello compiledkernel22:58
geirhaghostofmybrain: And an explanation of the patterns: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/glob22:58
ghostofmybraingeirha: ooooo, that's helpful. I've been doing it the loooong way23:01
ghostofmybrainso if I did cp *.zip directory, it will copy all zip files to the new directory?23:02
geirhaYes, all zip-files in the current directory, to the destination directory at the end.23:02
ghostofmybrainhaha, wow, that makes things way faster23:03
phillwghostofmybrain: you may want to pop over here and get the free book --> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=105206523:04
geirhaIf you want to become even more efficient, I strongly recommend: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide23:04
geirhaThere's also a guide called Advanced Bash-scripting guide. You should stay away from that, at least as a beginner.23:05
