ubottuGran_Ger: 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?00:03
kaolbrecGran_Ger, nautilus?00:03
bcjHas anyone else had problems booting 10.4 beta1 on VirtualBox?00:03
Lokigreezmunkey: ok I see, well then I will just have to try, trial and error^00:03
Gran_Geryes kaolbrec00:04
kaolbrecGran_Ger, gah. That's odd. Can you set the association to nautilus?00:04

* mcphail shrugs00:08
mkquistPrincipitto: if its in dvd format,id imagine so00:08
Principittowhat is the dvd format?00:09
mcphailMFen: if you can't be bothered to type it, create a bash alias to do it00:09
mkquistPrincipitto: what format is it in... and can you dvd player play avis?00:09
MFenmcphail: that's not the point, i have to document it as a one-liner other people can run00:09
Gran_Gershazbotmcnasty, where?00:10
Gran_GerI open nautilus00:10

=== simon_ is now known as Guest73099
Principittoill burn it ill se what happens00:14
LoshaResistol: I would guess either a bad burn, or an incompatibility with your hardware. Try again with the 8.04 live cd instead?00:15
Gran_Gershazbotmcnasty, Thanks!00:15
shazbotmcnastyit worked?00:15
shazbotmcnastyCool :)00:15
ResistolTrek, right now I've got a really messed up Vista installed on the a135, and I'm trying to put Ubuntu on instead - but I couldn't get the livecd to boot - when I select "try without making changes' i just get a black screen with a blinking cursor00:15
Gran_Geryes, I select the option Open with application00:15
ResistolAlso, in Vista I tried doing a partition shrink, and it froze... so I don't know whether to leave it alone for a bit and pray, or reboot and pray00:15
Gran_GerNow, How could happend this?00:15
TrekResistol, you have to give the darn thing some time to load, the blinky cursor screen is normal for a little while.  ANd also, in Vista, you cant shrink the active partition :P00:16
Gran_GerI mean, that the folder wasn't associated.00:16
TrekResistol, the CD will let you mess with the partitions as you install it, so just give it time to load up the livecd00:16
Resistoli gave it like 20 min00:16
Resistolno hd / cd activity00:16
sixofourwhat is some good video software for linux? i have an mp3 i want to upload somewhere but it needs to be a video format00:17
TrekResistol, perhaps you have a bad/incomplete CD?00:17
Resistoli'll try makin another00:17
TrekResistol: use a different image file (redownload)00:17
mkquisthow can a mp3 be a video without video?00:18
LoshaResistol: try 8.04 if you haven't already. It's very stable...00:18
sixofourmkquist:  you make a static image play the whole time00:18
Resistolhah holy shit the laptop just finished the partition shrink, and the clock updated00:18
ResistolI'll try burning 10.04 beta and give that a shot00:18
Resistolyou guys think if I install instead of "try without installing" it'll boot?00:19
LoshaResistol: if this is your first time with Ubuntu, you do *NOT* want to run a beta...00:19

PiciResistol : Please join #ubuntu+1 for Lucid/10.04 support/discussion.00:24
caspixthe thing is, i saw on internet that psi can be used for few im's (msn, icq, jabber, irc, gtalk) but when i installed it, it seems it's only for jabber...now i dont understand that...i'd like to use it for all..anyone knows how to add those accounts? (ps. sorry for my bad english)00:24
dinobiskHow can I make ubuntu automatically turn of my screen, not just dim it?00:26
Trekcaspix, perhaps you should check if they have a support forum/channel?00:26
Picicaspix: From what I can see on their website, they only support connecting to jabber.00:26
xanguacaspix: try pidgin, empathy or kopete for multiple accounts IM00:26
caspixpidgin is not working how it should on msn to me00:27
happyhoboPidgin is the best IMHO but ymmv00:27
Trekcaspix, I use pidgin for everything, minus Facebook, and it works without a flaw.  I strongly recommend you try it00:28

NeezerI just plugged in a usb drive into my headless server. I want to back up my music and movies to it before I make some changes to the server. I'm not sure how to do that via ssh.00:35
yawkcan anyone try grab ikiwiki 3.14 and telling me if they're able to build anything with the package..00:36
mcphailNeezer: you will need to mount the drive first00:37
Neezermcphail, how do I do that?00:38
TrekNeezer: mount <device partition path>00:38
mcphailNeezer: how is the drive formatted (FAT/NTFS/ext3 etc?)00:38
dominickpastorei've got this line in a script run by cron: "ssh -q -N -R *:17564:localhost:22 remoteuser@mydomain.com &>> /home/user/log &" (with correct usernames, etc). the process seems to die immediately, and nothing goes to the log. does anyone know what's going on?00:38
Neezermcphail, I don't know...I just picked it up from best buy to do this....00:39
NeezerTrek, I don't know the <device partition path>00:39
mcphailNeezer: that's fine. It should work ok. Plug the drive in, wait for a minute and then check "dmesg" to see what device letter has been allocated00:40
bastid_raZorNeezer: if it is a blank drive then you won't have any partitions to mount.. you'll need to use gparted to format the drive first.00:40
mcphailbastid_raZor: I have never bought a drive which wasn't already formatted00:40
bastid_raZormcphail: weird.. every drive i've ever bought has been void of a format.00:41
Neezermcphail, I ran dmesg, and i ended up with a bunch of outputs....I have no idea what I'm looking for.00:41
sixofourtried avidmux and lives, are there any other video programs i can try that are not garbage?00:41
mcphailNeezer: there will be something near the end of the list mentioning "/dev/sd??"00:42
e_trevHave you tried OpenShot?00:42
sixofouropenshot? no00:42
e_trevMy video editor of choice00:42
e_trevIt's got a ppa00:42
Neezermcphail, I am pretty sure it was sdc.00:42
sixofouri'm just trying to put a picture with an mp3 and make it an avi so i can upload to fb00:43
e_trevThat should do it.00:43
sixofourit should take 5-6  clicks at most lol00:43
mcphailNeezer: check again to be sure. The lines before it should comment that a usb device has been inserted and is being scanned.00:43
NeezerIt was a 1TB drive, and at the end it had about 10 or 15 lines with stuff about sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc]00:43
sixofouropenshot isn't in apt-get where do i get it? i don't know how to compile stuff00:44
Neezermcphail, that is correct. SCSI emulation for USB mass storage device00:44
Neezermcphail, then registered new interface driver usb-storage.00:44
mcphailNeezer: type "ls /dev/sdc*"00:44
Neezermcphail, I get /dev/sdc and /dev/sdc100:45
preposterusswhen i have my headphones pluged into my laptop the sound still comes out of my speakers, any direction on how to fix this?00:45
LoshaNeezer: are you forwarding X11 i.e. can you run gparted?00:45
TrekNeezer: /dev/sdc1 is the partition you should try mounting00:45
NeezerLosha, I believe I could00:45
NeezerTrek, I should just do mount /dev/sdc1?00:45
mcphailNeezer: good. It has a partition set up on it and will probably have been formatted00:45
LoshaNeezer: gparted is a great program for formatting. If you can't run gparted, you can format via the cli...00:46
Neezerwhere will it mount the partition?00:46
mcphailNeezer: you need to pick a directory to mount it to00:46
greezmunkeypreposteruss, the act of plugging in the headset should shut the speakers down. Sounds screwey to me.00:46
TrekNeezer: you could try it that, it will mount it wherever you tell it to.  unfortunately, my usefulness comes to an end, I use gparted to mount/unmount stuff :P00:46
Neezerif I mount it to my home folder, then will I have access to it as a user and not have to change permissions?00:46
mcphailNeezer: no00:47
preposterussif i go into the sound preferences on the output tab and change the connector dropdown to headphones it mutes the speakers00:47
mcphailNeezer: if it is a shop-formatted 1TB drive it will have been formatted as NTFS00:47
preposterussand the headphones work, but for some reason it's not doing it automatically when they're plugged in00:47
preposterussit works in other operating systems, even the netbook remixes00:47
LoshaNeezer: I suggest you format it as ext3 using gparted. Then you'll be able to mount it, ok?00:48
Neezermcphail, so if I do mount /dev/sdc1/home/nathan/storage it will make a storage folder in /home/nathan where the space will be/00:48
mcphailNeezer: you need to make the directory first00:49
LoshaNeezer: and watch your spaces: sudo    mount   /dev/sdc1   /home/nathan/storage00:49
mcphailNeezer: but you will probably run into permission issues at some point because NTFS is not a native linux filesystem00:49
fulld7hello, I just installed and had to reshuffle my IDE devices to boot -- now I am stuck at grub rescue>> and when I try some commands, I get stuck with "error: unknown filesystem"00:50
Neezerwhat is the command for gparted?00:50
NeezerI tried gparted, and it said command not found.00:51
Trekyou have a gui right Neezer?00:51
Neezernot on the server.00:51
TrekNeezer: if you don't you cant use gparted00:51
Neezeri'm in ssh.00:51
LoshaNeezer: install it first: sudo apt-get install gparted00:51

Neezermcpahil, I don't have anything on it...it is brand new. I am in gparted. You mentioned ext3, is ext4 better?00:54
mcphailNeezer: i don't trust ext4 yet00:54
Neezermcphail, enough said. ext3 it is.00:54
mcphailNeezer: will your drive be used only for linux?00:54
LoshaNeezer: ext3 is best for your purposes...00:55
BluntObjectmcphail: Why do you not trust ext4?00:55
BluntObjectI would not use anything else under Linux on a >4 TB file system.00:55
BluntObjectI have over 24TB under ext400:55
BluntObjectWhat file system would you use for that?00:56
mcphailBluntObject: i'm probably just a bit paranoid and conservative, especially after reading the intrepid release notes00:56
PERL-533605Evening all00:56
Neezermcphial, my drive is going to be used to do daily syncs with my server as a second backup for it in case something goes wrong....it already has raid1 running, so I should be able to replace the array if I lose 1 drive. I am going to make some changes to the server tonight or tomorrow, and I wanted a separate backup as well.00:56
BluntObject<mcphail> Have you ever created a 24TB file system using ext3?00:56
mcphailBluntObject: no. Neezer is creating a 1TB filesystem. We can debate the relative merits of other filesystems on ot00:57
BluntObjectPerhaps you have rsync'd files off an ext3 or XFS file system when the source has hundreds of directories with thousands of file in each?00:57
LoshaI might reconsider the choice for such a large system, but for casual use, I stand by ext3 as the filesystem of choice...00:57

brandonban6hey all... I have a music share on a second HDD, I'm trying to get ubuntu to create a symlink from the default music folder to my music share... i.e. ln -s /path/to/musicshare /home/user/Music only creates a symlink inside Music, where I want to turn Music into the symlink01:10
Matissesmokealot, i aint sure if that makes sense... :)01:10
LoshaNeezer: it can take a while depending on the drive speed. 20 minutes or so...01:10

Matissesmokealot, yes01:23

NeezerLosha, quick question, how come there are 14.8 GB used on the drive?01:23
underdevbtw everyone: although the 10.04 beta1 desktop iso didn't install under virtualbox, i have alt up and running now... miss the orange :)01:24
Neezercan that still be all the windows crap that the drive comes with?01:24
smokealotLosha: it is flash crashes often on windows and linux i dont know why everything needs it01:24
LoshaNeezer: welcome to the world of disk formats. The formatting itself entails overhead which takes up disk space. It's normal I'm afraid...01:24
Melwasulanyone know how to fix eggdrop? ive got it where it tries to load, but it doesnt want to load the config file..01:24
mcphailNeezer: space reserved for root, filesystem overhead etc01:24

casemodsHello. Wondering the best way to go about using a USB drive to live run ubuntu01:27
SpadrosHey guys. So I went to the troubleshooting for wifi on the website, and basically I discovered that my network adapter is disabled. I'm on an iMac 5g. Any suggestions on what to do?01:27
gardarrm -rf is even more dangerous01:27
mcphailNeezer: if you want, or try "sudo chown nathan:nathan /home/nathan/Storage"01:27
asdffLosha: I am using xterm which loads .Xdefaults, do you know how to add commands to that? like would xset b 0 0 0 work, as the syntax is particular in that file01:28
caseyswhat about rmdir?01:28
mcphailNeezer: but mount the disk first01:28
Trekgardar: too true, but sudo rm -rf *.* is even more dangerous.   DO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND!01:28
ubottuDO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND That particular command is DANGEROUS and shouldn't be uttered here. REST OF YOU: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! Do not use the command or utter it here thank you!01:28
mcphailcaseys: rmdir will only delete an empty folder01:28
chili555Spadros, is it disabled because the switch or button is off?01:28
caseysthats what i need01:28
SpadrosNo. There is no on and off switch for the adapter on it.01:29
Neezermcphail, I have mounted it, and am in the process of copying my Pictures, Movies, Videos, and .ssh folders over to the drive.01:29
Loshaasdff: you can't add xset to the .Xdefaults file, it has to go in .bashrc or .login. Sorry...01:29
Neezerafter my fresh install tonight, I'll be setting up a true backup system with something.01:29
mcphailNeezer: result. Enjoy.01:30

leagris2.2 + 2.5 + 1.0 it is like 6.6Mb, add track seek lattency overhead as you write several files at once, att that the drive does not write cache and probably write in synk as of default settings for external drive. This is not that bad after all Neezer01:45

ubottucompuman yes.. follow the link here for a how-to: The /etc/fstab file indicates how drive partitions are to be used or otherwise integrated into the file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab and http://www.tuxfiles.org/linuxhelp/fstab.html and !Partitions01:50
Neezercompuman, yes. you have to add it to the fstab01:50
clickmebastid_raZor: sorry01:51
xanguachico: do you have any ubuntu related question¿01:51
leagrisLosha, Neezer USB bus speed is shared among the controler tree. 2 USB ports share the same bandwidth. If you add hubs behind, any all the peripherials share bandwidth. And more badly, if by event one of the peripherial is not USB 2.0 complyent, the all buss downgrade to the lesser common speed among connected devices :/01:51
Loshacaseys: yes, the mail command is on line 37. It looks ok. Check in /var/log/mail.log and see if there is a log of the script sending email...01:51
clickmebastid_raZor: i meant remote pcs IP01:51
mcphaildominickpastore: i really don't understand where you are putting the shebang. What is the relevant line in your crontab?01:51
xanguajuboba: what language¿¿in Gnome: sis> admon> language support01:51

jubobaxangua: as an addon?01:53
jubobaxangua: I did, but still01:53
bastid_raZorclickme: from cli i don't know.. but for graphical you could use network tools and do a lookup of the domain name01:53
xanguajuboba: no, i've already told you in System> Admon> Language support01:53
ShermanBoydI think the ubuntu-xen-server package is broken in Lucid01:53
clickmebastid_raZor: uhmmmm i do have the domain name01:53
Losha#ubuntu> oops, pardon my fat fingers...01:54
bastid_raZorclickme: doing a lookup on the domain name will give you the IP of it01:54
bazhangShermanBoyd, #ubuntu+1 for lucid please01:54
dominickpastoremcphail: oh. let me try to clarify. the crontab runs a script with the command i mentioned earlier. the crontab line is "*/5 * * * * user /usr/local/bin/tunneler.sh"01:54
jubobaxangua: where is that?01:54
xanguajuboba: in your menu01:54
mcphaildominickpastore: got you!01:54

clickmebastid_raZor: yes01:56
dominickpastoremcphail: yeah. and the only thing that seems to not work when run by cron is that one liine. perhaps ssh in cron is a little more complex than otherwise?01:56
jubobaxangua: I don't, just want to check spanish cause I'm learning01:56
SzuntiHi! I have intel GPU. To make my screen stop flickering i have to: xrandr --output LVDS --set BACKLIGHT_CONTROL native, how can i do it as soon as possible at boot? setting it in xorg.conf would be the best, but i found no way01:57
mcphaildominickpastore: have you tried running it from the user's crontab rather than root's crontab?01:57

Spadroscan someone help me get connected to the internet? I'm on a iMac 5g and I'm running Ubuntu 9.04. I'm pretty sure that my problem is that my adapter is disabled. There is no on and off button for the adapter on my computer. Any ideas?01:58
bastid_raZorclickme: then the domain name is sending you to the correct ip.. you'll need to portforward on the router to be able to ssh/http whatever ..01:58
dominickpastoremcphail: no. i'll try that and see what happens.01:58
clickmebastid_raZor: wow01:58
clickmebastid_raZor: that blows01:58
mcphaildominickpastore: i presume the public key is in the user's home directory rather than root's?01:58
ZoffixSpadros, is it wireless?01:59
dominickpastoremcphail: yes01:59
SpadrosZoffix: yeah, but when I plug the ethernet in it also doesn't connect.01:59
ZoffixHmr, no clue...01:59
bastid_raZorclickme: routers have all incoming ports blocked by default.01:59
SpadrosAnybody have any ideas what I should do at all?01:59
clickmebastid_raZor: i can do it on windows02:00
bastid_raZorclickme: what are you doing?02:00
mcphaildominickpastore: cron is a bit unpredicatble when it comes to environment variables. Try running from the user's crontab to see02:00
Szuntithe first time i know i can use the xrand is gdm, can i use it even before that?02:00
clickmebastid_raZor: well i use to map to the pc using the network option in ubuntu  but now is not working so i was doing it with the ip02:01
paranoid_pedlarcan someone help me with setting up weechat?02:01

j3rganyone true Arch Linux before?02:04
caseysLosha: you there?02:04
Loshacaseys: you need to find out if the mail command is being executed. Can you add a debug command like: echo "`date` Sending mail from $FROM to $TO" >> /tmp/debug.log at line 41 to the script so you can see if it's being executed and with what arguments?02:05
Zoffixkopecky, does that have a timer and a default option?02:06
caseysKLosha: i don't follow02:06
kopeckyno timer or default02:06
kopeckyi went in to change my root password and it's been doing this since.02:07

aurillianceA bible program for ubuntu? I was gonna grab esword, but I realised it's win only and I'd rather not use wine where possible...02:07

airtonixsexcopter, i mean paplay.02:09
kopeckyok. thanks02:09
pauljwaurilliance, isn't gnomesword in the repos?02:10
Loshacaseys: well, either the mail command isn't executed, or it's being executed with the wrong arguments. The line echo "`date` Sending mail from $FROM to $TO" >> /tmp/debug.log will write a line of text to /tmp/debug.log each time it executes. That will tell us if the line is being reached, and what the arguments are...02:10

airtonixsexcopter, if you are trying to play sound on your laptop from apps running on your desktop i would suggest you look at using avahi and padevchooser02:11

pepper_hazehow do you install shockwave player on firefox?02:12
sexcopterairtonix, thanks for your suggestion. paplay returns "Failed to open audio file". I want the sound to play on the server, not the laptop. the server has no monitor plugged in.02:12
dominickpastoremcphail: nohup? what do you mean by that?02:13
sexcopterairtonix, wait, i tried opening an mp3 with paplay, that was dumb. will try a wav!02:13
airtonixsexcopter, how did you use papplay ? i assume you pointed it at an audio file ?02:13
Loshadominickpastore: 'failed password for remoteuser'. That's a clue, no?02:13

Middlemanwhy doesnt ubuntu use swap and just eat ram02:14
Middlemanwhat a pos02:14
=== Nightwolf42 is now known as Nightwolf
Middlemani got 8gb ram02:14
Loshacaseys: no, add the debug line and see if it gets executed...02:14
dominickpastoreLosha: well, i would think, although i'm still not sure what's causing it since it works when i don't use cron02:14
mcphaildominickpastore: i was wondering whether your connection was being dumped as soon as the script ended. Backgrounding the commands with "&" doesn't make them persist if the calling shell closes, but adding "nohup" to the command keeps them alive.02:14
sexcopterairtonix, this time it gave me "Connection failure: Connection refused"02:14
ZoffixMiddleman, so do I... swap is much slower than RAM, so it uses RAM first...02:14
bastid_raZorMiddleman: how are you checking how much RAM is being used?02:14
mcphaildominickpastore: but it seems as if it is the authetication which is the problem here02:14
Loshadominickpastore: does it ask for a password when you run it by hand?02:14

dominickpastoremcphail: ah. i bet you're onto something.02:15
sexcopterairtonix, there is a *chance* that it's disabled in the bios, but if that were the case, I wouldn't see it in commands like aplay -l and lspci, right?02:15
Middlemanso this is normal? cause it worries me that all ram is used and i only got 1 vm @ 2gb02:15
airtonixsexcopter, are you allowing all traffic from your desktops ip to the laptop ?02:15
pepper_hazeIs there a apt install for shockwave?02:15
dominickpastoreLosha: no, it just works silently.02:15
bastid_raZorMiddleman: in free -m ..cached RAM is not used RAM. the more you have cached the better02:15

ShawnRi swear, i honestly don't know why i ever come in here looking for help02:15
Middlemanso if i try to load another vm thats 2gb, it should be ok then and not choke02:16
Loshadominickpastore: so it's using public key access to login?02:16
ShawnRalways get ignored02:16
dominickpastoreLosha: yes02:16
airtonixsexcopter, also you'll need to check that pulseaudio is setup and knows about the sound card on its machine (on the desktop)02:16
greezmun1eyMiddleman: http://www.linuxatemyram.com/02:16
bastid_raZor Middleman sorry.. cached RAM is considered used in free ..which gives a false reading.02:16

=== KillerDeTroll is now known as Noob`s
Melwasulwhoever sent me to the eggdrop channel(forget who) thanks02:17
airtonixsexcopter, i mention the firewall rules because it maybe setup by default to send sound to the machine connecting to it. just a thought02:17
Loshadominickpastore: the environment is different when running from cron. I bet it's something to do with accessing the private key when running from cron. Try using -i to explicitly state the path to the users key...02:17
dominickpastoremcphail: that's true. i'm not sure what's causing the authentication failure though. i'll see what the log says when i run it manually.02:18
airtonixsexcopter, you might also want to confirm that its running (did you install ubuntu on the desktop with the desktop iso or the server iso ? )02:18
sexcopterairtonix, I don't have firestarter installed. but this isn't a network issue. only possibility i can think of is it's trying to channel the audio from the server to the laptop (something pulseaudio might do), which I don't want.02:18
mcphaildominickpastore: try adding "export HOME=/home/user" to the top of your script02:18

paranoid_pedlarairstrike, is it better to learn python if you want to develop for gnome/gtk environments?02:54
Pengyduckwinairtonix: Thanks, that worked02:54
davidcramercross your fingers for me -- i might have fixed it02:54
airtonixparanoid_pedlar, i would recomend you learn C++02:55
underdevcasemods: i would use the torrent to download 9.10 desktop iso, and install from that02:55
nunyadavidcramer: if it works tell me how you did it02:55
underdevcasemods: it will be MUCH quicker02:55
airtonixparanoid_pedlar, although if you're just going to be making gui frontends then python is the desired method02:55
paranoid_pedlarairstrike, isn't that for professionals?02:55
davidcramernunya: well to resolve dependancy issues i had to remove using aptitude (vs apt-get), and im uninstalling a ton of packages (mysql-common + deps) so I can install this02:55
paranoid_pedlarairstrike, you found me :P02:55
Loshacaseys: ok, let's do the same thing. sh -x /etc/pwrstatd-email.sh02:56
airtonixparanoid_pedlar, what is a 'professional' ? thinking you dont meet the bar for that scenario is selling yoruself short.02:56

caseysLosha: ok02:56
paranoid_pedlarairtonix, well I do, do that. That's why I bought a ruby book. I figured it's easier to learn, and C++ is difficult02:57
underdevcasemods: http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/downloadmirrors#bt02:57
underdevyou can grab the torrent file from that link02:57
nunyadavidcramer: it's like opening a can of worms doing that sometimes, the list can keep growing.02:57
underdev(but, as you know, you will have to update a bunch of files afterwards)02:57

airtonixCalmvsKhaos, no.02:58
paranoid_pedlarairtonix, I've believed that C++ need a college engineering diploma to be any good at it.. Is it just as readily learned as other languages?02:58
airtonixparanoid_pedlar, it will if you keep thinking like that.02:59
underdevparanoid_pedlar: uh, no02:59
underdevparanoid_pedlar: you would be hard pressed to find a "high-level" language more difficult than C++02:59
davidcramerany easy way to debug a failing init.d?03:00
bastid_raZorclickme: i reran the command and it has probably 15 or more themes03:00
CalmvsKhaosairstrike, darn, i can just set them for each window manager?03:00
casemodsunderdev: I only get 70-80kBs max so I doubt it will be any faster but I'lll  use the torrent anyway so it will resume in case my intarwebz goes down03:00
paranoid_pedlarairtonix, underdev , I have nothing but time on my hands. so it is difficult to learn? I just want to code the shiatsu in my head03:00

kurosSattvic: Ubuntu. I have it booting via pxe fine03:41
EastDallasjimbeam12: rosco_y: Ubuntu Version numbers indicate their release date in the format year.month.  So version 10.04 will be released in April 2010.03:42
MozillaGuerrillavoid_pointer, how do i find out the name to use for the rest of the command?03:42
kurosSattvic: I mainly wanted to know if I needed to install some special drivers for the SCSI HDs?03:42
SattvicKuros: so you have it working now?03:42
jimbeam12thx EastDallas03:42
Loshacaseys: lines 21 thru 34. The syntax was incompatible with bash. Must be written for an old system...03:42
EastDallasI created a bootable USB flash drive using 'USB Startup Disk Creator' and the 32 bit desktop iso.  I would like to use this as my portable OS.  Unfortunately, every time I attempt to install updates via 'Update Manager' the updates install, I am prompted to restart, but the flash drive will no longer boot.  I suspect it may have something to do with a grub update that is installed.  The grub update prompts me as to which device to install 03:42
EastDallasjimbeam12: np03:43
kurosSattvic: Yes, it is installing now. Thank you though03:43
jimbeam12since i gotten used this forget windows...lol03:43
SattvicI have been meaning to install Eucalyptus - are you a server admin?03:43
void_pointerMozillaGuerrilla, pastebin the result you get from "sudo iwconfig"03:43
kurosSattvic: Yeah, but I have no experience with Eucalyptus. That's the clustering software, isn't it?03:44
SattvicElastic- storage03:45
kurosAh...it is on my list to play with, when I have time03:45
SattvicInstalled Eucalyptus: but your username?03:45
void_pointerEastDallas, yeah, when you do the updates, don't include grub03:46
void_pointerEastDallas, that's what I do with mine, anyway03:46
kurosI'm sorry?03:46
SattvicInstalled Eucalyptus: it mirrors what Amazon's EC2 cloud infrastructure can do - basically dynamic allocation of virtually endless resources03:46

satrwhat i can write to shutdown03:47
void_pointersatr, uh, you can type "sudo shutdown -h now"03:47
SattvicInstalled Eucalyptus: oh, just that your username was misleading that you did not have prior experience with Eucalyptus03:47
EastDallasvoid_pointer: Using the older version of grub doesn't cause any problems with any of the other updates?03:47
void_pointerEastDallas, not that I've found03:47

void_pointerEastDallas, if you can be bothered, you can adjust whatever changes the grub update makes. I can never be bothered03:48

Sattvicsudo-ninja: sorry I cannot help with wireless drivers03:53
sudo-ninJaSattvic: yes, but it was working just fine yesterday, im thinking i uninstalled an important application03:53
Brenda_McLinuxvoid_pointer, why are you here if you aren't helping people? Changing my password in Linux and it not working is not a user end error. The password must be typed in twice and therefor can not be a mistake. That is an OS problem. Not user end. >.>03:53
sudo-ninJaSattvic: darn03:53
void_pointerBrenda_McLinux, but since you wanted to pursue it ... the password does not suddenly change. You have made a mistake in either entering or remembering the password03:54
crackityjones74lyrae go to system monitor under system >> administration >> system monitor and select the 'system' tab. it will say 'generic' for your kernel or x86_64 if you're using amd64.03:54
sudo-ninJawell how about this... what if i want to create a partition on the laptop?03:54
void_pointerBrenda_McLinux, stick around. I help a lot of people. I also note when people blame "linux" instead of themselves.03:54

IdleOneBrenda_McLinux: please change your attitude, void_pointer was/is trying to help by pointing out that the password does not change randomly. so the error is the users, wether you like that answer or not03:56
crackityjones74what does it say for 'kernel' when you click on the 'system' tab?03:56
MozillaGueirrillim using a VirtualBox, is this to be expected?03:56
crackityjones74then you're using i386 i think, unless i'm wrong. anybody else know for sure?03:56
lyraecrackityjones74, just says 2.6.31-20-generic03:57
void_pointerMozillaGueirrill, the problem is I don't use VirtualBox, so it may be. Is there an option that includes recognizing devices?03:57
GneaBrenda_McLinux: you would have to boot the system up in a way that would allow the root user to access the passwd command03:57
crackityjones74i think that means it's i386. if you were using an x86_64 kernel it would say so.03:57

Platypus-Manhello peeps, I'm considering buying some Wester Digital Caviar Green 1,5 TB drives as they are the most bang for the buck atm, but those drives use "Advanced Format" technology... quote from WD's site: "WD Advanced Format drives are specifically optimized for Mac and the latest Windows operating systems such as Windows Vista and Windows 7 with a clean install. Advanced Format Technology is being adopted by WD and other drive manufacture04:12
DolpI'm using open source office, whenever I try to enter "0.02753304" it ends up "0.3" how do i stop it from rounding up?04:12
Platypus-ManYour WD Advanced Format hard drive may require you to run the WD Align software utility after you install your operating system or partition and format the drive as a secondary drive. WD Align software aligns partitions on the Advanced Format drive to ensure it provides full performance for certain configurations. (Please see table for configuration details)"04:12

RUXADoes anyone have experience with setup CDMA mobile phone and internet in ubuntu 9.10?04:31
faron1I installed greasemonkey & can use it to wacth youtube but I really don't understand how to write scripts ya know ?04:31
airtonixRUXA, doesnt look like anyone does.04:31
iOmletteRUXA, it might help to give someone a couple minutes to answer you.04:32
jribtooth1: you probably want to include more details... Like for example: how did you install the qt4 libraries exactly?  What is the contents of the file you are trying to command?  What is the command and full output when you try to compile?04:32
airtonixfaron1, have a look at userscripts.org. to make them you just need to know how to manipulate the html dom with javascript.... i find that jquery makes this easier04:32
dominickpastoreRUXA: i have done this with my own phone, but my experience is that it can involve quite a bit of research, depending on your phone.04:32
faron1mplayer works SO much better than flash to play flash videos04:32
airtonixfaron1, so does vlc.04:32
faron1jquery ?04:33
airtonixfaron1, http://jquery.com/04:33
faron1hmmmm thank you04:33
dominickpastoreRUXA: some phones are supported by default if you plug it in and just look in the NetworkManager Applet's menu. others, like mine, take a little more work. i had to install an extra piece of software on my phone, for example.04:34

lasthope106when I'm asked to put in the password in "update manager" to grant it root acess.  Does it give root access to the whole system or just to the application in this case "update manager"?04:44
iOmlettelasthope106: Just the application.04:45
DasEilasthope106: just app04:45
dominickpastoreRUXA: ok. well i probably won't be much help since you don't seem to be having the same problems with your phone as I had with mine. just curious though, do you have a tethering plan?04:45
ShadowKnightdoes anyone know if you could partition an external hard drive so that it could be read in a ps3?04:45
Treklasthope106: it just means it want authorization to use the graphical sudo command04:45
iOmlettelasthope106: And usually, root access only lasts for 15 minutes (I think) for the application, as well.04:45
DasEiShadowKnight: ntfs should work04:46

DasEikarmic comes with ext4 in default, Spaztic_One05:04

ne0futurhi all i m trying to remove pulseaudio from my system, but all the tutorials say "go to System -> Preferences -> Sound"05:12
piojunbabiahow to pastebin?05:12

ne0futurI have no "System -> Preferences -> Sound" in wmaker05:12
ActionParsnipne0futur: type its name, use tab to complete it05:12
airtonixne0futur, i'm sure you have some extremely good reasons for doing such a hastey operation05:12
piojunbabiathanks, ok wait05:12
theadminActionParsnip: Ubuntu rocks... except it's not as popular. Macs are also bleh, so Linux is the only one. And out of those, Ubuntu looks best.05:13

=== jason__ is now known as mjkjr
ne0futurairtonix: pulseaudio is the worst peace of s**t i seen for years ( excepting kde4 )05:13
theadminne0futur: lol totally agree on kde05:13
airtonixne0futur, i disagree.05:13
ne0futurActionParsnip: what is the name of the binary launched by "System -> Preferences -> Sound" ?05:13
ActionParsniptheadmin: not if you wanna play games which wont run in wine or run proprietary software which relys heaily on windows05:13
bazhangne0futur, please watch the language05:13
piojunbabia./etc/apt/sources.list is a text file?05:13
airtonixne0futur, i seem to be the only one that can make pulseaudio do what i want.05:14
ActionParsnipne0futur: run alacarte and see for yourself ;)05:14
theadminActionParsnip: Which i have dual-boot with Windows for05:14
ne0futur( but I love kde, using https://wiki.kubuntu.org/Kubuntu/Kde3/Karmic here )05:14
DasEipiojunbabia:^ terminal output and file :   /etc/apt/sources.list  , text-file, yes05:14
airtonixActionParsnip, now alacarte issomething i detest...i want some thing that can edit the menus faster...05:14
cameron_Is anyone else having severe keyboard problems and general Gnome weirdness? I'm having to create a new user because none of my sessions will accept input through my physical keyboard or thru onBoard..05:14
ActionParsniptheadmin: yes, so windows has advantages over ubuntu ;)05:14
ActionParsnipairtonix: could edit the .desktop files in /usr/share/applications05:15
theadminActionParsnip: And disadvantages too :( Whatever, let's cut the offtopic05:15
ne0futurActionParsnip: theres no alacarte binary here05:15
ActionParsniptheadmin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d85p7JZXNy805:15
theadminMetacity randomly hangs up when i use Java apps, any idea?05:15
airtonixActionParsnip, true but its more complicated than that... it involves an xml merge overlay file thats more complicated than it needs to be05:15
ActionParsnipne0futur: press alt+f2  type: alacarte  press enter, you can then navigate to the area of the menu to see what command is executed05:15
ne0futurActionParsnip: no alacarte here, i m running wmaker , no kde or gnome DE05:16
ne0futuri just need the name of the sound config binary05:16
airtonixActionParsnip, menu items you see are made up from a global set of items, and gnome then reads an xml file in your home folder to merge or remove items... which i suspect is why alacarte is so slow ... i detest re-organising my menu with alacarte because it moves at such a glacial speed05:17
* ne0futur tries apt-get install alacarte05:17

ZnuffHi. Is there any article stating why the hell the new ubuntu beta has Yahoo! as it's default search engine?05:36
ActionParsnipZnuff: whats wrong with yahoo?05:36
unopaurilliance,  you'd set the appropriate gconf keys under '/system/http_proxy' and '/system/proxy' -- to script it, you can make use of something like gconftool-205:36
theadminActionParsnip: Google is better?05:36

paranoid_pedlarDasEi, perfect. it's getting late for me05:38
paranoid_pedlarDasEi, forgot what the package was called05:38

meatbunis chrome based on mozilla?05:41
theadminmeatbun: Not at all05:41
aurillianceunop, thanks ^05:41
meatbuntheadmin: i look/feel so much like firefox05:41
ActionParsnipmeatbun: not at all, it uses webkit05:41
zetherooplease help!!! My laptop screen keeps turning off randomly.... I don't touch it for a couple min and then "poof" it's off .. the machine is still running though ... I can hear skype messages coming in ... :P05:42
theadminmeatbun: It might have been inspired by FF a bit, but it's not technically "based" on it05:42
DasEizetheroo: s-saver ? enrgy saving on max ?05:42
theadminzetheroo: Check the screensaver and Power Management05:42
meatbunActionParsnip: i c05:42
meatbuntheadmin: ok05:42
zetherooDasEino ... the screen is off! and nothing turns it back on ... the machine is still running05:43
ActionParsnipmeatbun: on my systems it runs a whole lot leaner than firefox, plus its made by google so it must be awesome right....05:43
zetherooDasEi: as i said I am getting skype messages still from my chat as i can hear the sound ...05:43
DasEizetheroo: have a look in /var/log/messages and syslog in same dir05:43
theadminActionParsnip: I wish it'd develop more quickly...05:43
zetherooDasEi: ok05:44
meatbunActionParsnip: newer firefox required JRE 6.x; but my legacy software require an older ver of JRE. so i am switching over to safari05:44
DasEitheadmin: it's going on very fast, if you watch the daily builds05:44
theadminDasEi: Do you talk about CHROME or CHROMIUM?05:44
ActionParsniptheadmin: daily builds are awesome05:44
meatbunActionParsnip: but now i am reconsider chrome over safari. and IE sucks05:44
DasEitheadmin: the browser05:45
FriGiNMorning everyone. anyone wanna help out a newbie to ubuntu with an install question05:45
DasEiFriGiN: ask05:45
theadminmeatbun: And not for Linux. Also, there is Opera... but it's a meh05:45
ActionParsnipmeatbun: try it, its free to try05:45
DasEi,,,,every browser suc...05:46
FriGiNok heres the deal .. goin onto a laptop to share with win7, got main 7 partition. got my swap space, and the installer is only making a 20g partition05:46
FriGiNi have about 40 more than that i want to dedicate to *nix05:46
ActionParsniptheadmin: arora is great too, really mean and supports all the new standards05:46
theadminFriGiN: Try "Specify partitions manually (advanced)"05:46
zetherooDasEi: when the screen goes black the keyboard also stops working ... maybe X is crashing?05:46
FriGiNam in there. its still only letting max size for main part be 19230mb05:46
meatbuntheadmin: yeah... my other choices are galeon on windows and opera05:46
FriGiNthats why im askin.05:46
ActionParsnipmeatbun: arora is great too :)05:47
meatbunActionParsnip: yah. chrome had been beta for a while05:47
DasEizetheroo: look up in /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log05:47
theadminFriGiN: What are you formatting it to?05:47
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, opera was the first browser to pilot a lot of what we're used to in our chosen browsers, like tabs05:47
meatbuni wasted good # of hours trying to fix JRE and firefox. and i just give up and use safari05:47
ruariyea sounds like is down, will it let you drop to console, by pressing <ctrl Alt> F4?05:47
FriGiNdidnt format it yet still in the prep parts screen05:47
theadminparanoid_pedlar: Yeah but it has TOO MUCH stuff these days05:47
theadminFriGiN: I mean, what filesystem are you trying to format to?05:47
CrustyBarnacleFriGin: Win7 allows you to resize partitions live. You may need to make your Win7 partition smaller before you install *nix05:48
theadminCrustyBarnacle: He has 40GB unallocated05:48
theadminCrustyBarnacle: Whilst he can only make a 20 gig part05:48
FriGiNits default to ext4. and i already resized the part to have 41948 to free05:48
FriGiNagree @ theadmin05:48
FriGiNmy part prep screen shows "free space - - 41948mb"05:49
FriGiNtrying to add that to the ext4 nix partition05:49
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, agreed, however I'm not going to switch, I'll just wait for firefox to assimilate the different browsers. Plus I kinda feel guilty for ditching firefox, since it's done well for linux05:49
theadminFriGiN: Okay, how does your partition table go? In what order?05:49
theadminparanoid_pedlar: I'll always be on it, it's by far my favorite05:49
FriGiNits /dev/sda - dev/sda1/ ntfs - freespace - /dev/sda5 ext4 - /dev/sda6 swap05:50
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, I think the only reason google designed a browser was to defeat firefox from making loads of cash from the google toolbar05:50
theadminparanoid_pedlar: btw chrome doesn't seem to HAVE the toolbar lol05:51
theadminFriGiN: Hm, wud? Sorry but... could you take a screenshot, i failed to understand05:51
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, and bookmark access is odd at best05:51
CrustyBarnacleFriGin: Did the installer create the ext4 and swap partitions? or did you manually create them?05:51
DasEitheadmin: I understand , take over ?05:51
theadminDasEi: Yes please05:52
FriGiNyou know what.. its from a messed up install.. i got my answer i bet. delete the parts and recreate05:52
FriGiNi bet its that simple05:52
CrustyBarnacleFriGin: That is indeed where I would start.05:52
DasEiFriGiN: you will have to delete sda5 to get it one space05:52
FriGiNhad a bad sector or something that messed with my permissions and couldnt load x.05:52
FriGiNor whatever its called these days.05:53
DasEiFriGiN: are you using the desktop-live cd ?05:53
zetherooDasEi: so much stuff .. I have no idea what to look for05:53
FriGiNyup yup.05:53
theadminFriGiN: X, not "x", but nearly right05:53
DasEiFriGiN: additional question, have you got a (small) additional, free usb-stick ?05:54
FriGiNyes i do. many plus a TB external.05:54
DasEizetheroo: use search function of editor, search error05:54
theadminAny idea what window manager does the gnome-shell package of Karmic use?05:54
FriGiNok dumb question and its beena few years so this could be an issue that has been resolved or just a minor annoyance from ancient times..05:55
ActionParsniptheadmin: probably compiz05:55
DasEiFriGiN: k, that's just an extracautious idea, backup the working mbr, case things go wrong, so win is still intact; as I got you you got a grub now with win, but not ubu working05:56
FriGiNdoes it matter that /sda5 and /sda6 are my nix and swap?05:56
theadminActionParsnip: oh. Any way to switch over to metacity?05:56
theadminFriGiN: Most likely yes05:56
FriGiNok then i killed swap too ..05:56
ActionParsniptheadmin: try it with the usual: metacity --replace05:56
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, yes there is05:56
paranoid_pedlarno need for that parsnip05:56
FriGiNback ancient years ago you should have put your swap to 2x your phys mem.. still the case?05:56
theadminCan i force WUBI to install grub to MBR and NOT to the Ubuntu pseudo-partition?05:57
DasEiFriGiN: no, ubu installs wherever you like it, but to resize, spaces have to be next to each other05:57
CrustyBarnacleFriGin: You need >= RAM to Hibernate/Suspend05:57
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, install compiz fusion icon05:58
DasEiFriGiN: for hibernating it is important , if you got more then enough ram, don't really need swap that big05:58
zetherooDasEi: ok ... one repeating error is to do with bluez and the other is X05:58
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, good for when you want to play a game, or an app is acting funny05:58
theadminparanoid_pedlar: compiz is of no good for 512 megs of RAM05:58
DasEizetheroo: sudo apt-get install pastebinit05:58
FriGiNwell i got 2gb of ram.. so im thinkin a 2048 swap instead of 888 that the installer originally placed.05:58
paranoid_pedlartheadmin, I thought you wanted to switch to non composite, this package allows that05:59
DasEizetheroo: pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com  /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log05:59
drizzt_and my font's look to washed out whats wrong with them?05:59
theadminDasEi: you missed -i06:00
DasEiFriGiN: yep, at 2 gig systemram, I'd place a swap also apart from suspend06:00
zetherooDasEi: I found the errors in syslog06:00
theadminDasEi: zetheroo: pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com -i /etc/X11/Xorg.0.log06:00
RoastedAnybody know how I can sync two thunderbird calendars together on my ubuntu laptop and ubuntu desktop?06:00
FriGiNDasEi: how do you mean place a swap also apart from suspend06:01
researcher1where can I find the easy tutorial for DHCP Server controlled TCp/IP network?06:01
researcher1Im learning Networking06:01
DasEiFriGiN: swap is needed if apps consumed the ram, 2 gigs are not too less, but are reachable by heavy usage06:02
FriGiNDasEi: yup understand that. but you said apart.. so another swap space?06:03
DasEiFriGiN: in spite of was meant06:03
DasEino other swap06:03
meatbunwhich is a good terminal based/ssh irc client?06:04
FriGiNDasEi: so one single 2048 swap and a 60019 working part should be sufficient is what your telling me correct?06:04
DasEiFriGiN: yes06:04
meatbunor should i say, that is popular now?06:04

ubottugaurav: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:20

rohanroyAlso, I'm in a virtual machine, behind a nat router and cable modem.06:29

zetherooDasEi: how do you boot into recovery mode ... I don't get a grub menu because I only have Ubuntu install on here06:30
greezmunkeyrohanroy: mna ip route06:31
DasEizetheroo: reboot again, press left shift after "beep"06:31

=== el_acosador_Drag is now known as el_acosado
zetherooDasEi: booted straight into X again06:32
greezmunkeyrohanroy: Not knowing what you have set up, setting your PPTP interface as your default gate should do it.06:32
ActionParsniprohanroy: dont forget with the automatic stuff you lose a lot of configurability ;)06:32
zetherooDasEi: trying again06:33
rohanroygreezmunkey: I have a fully configured, working PPTP VPN installed on a remote server (my windows xp and mac clients connect just fine.)06:33
zetherooDasEi: ok I got the grub menu06:33
drizzt_nono it's hard because ubuntu design team is busy with moving window buttons instead of making usable product06:33

crunchbanghey im installing crunch bang at the moment and there is not a united states option for keybords what should I do06:34
zetherooDasEi: ok ... 31-20 recovery mode06:34
rohanroygreezmunkey: BUTTT, a traceroute to google.com still shows it leaving my router, to my isp and to google, instead of out of my VPN server.06:34
DasEizetheroo: netroot06:35
drizzt_ActionParsnip, it requires DNS daemon which is not installed by default06:35
zetherooDasEi: ok06:35
abhi_navcrunchbang: join #crunchbang06:35
DasEi!crunchbang | crunchbang, mine had one06:35
ubottucrunchbang, mine had one: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information.

=== mdupont is now known as Phurl
greezmunkeyrohanroy: looking06:36
abhi_navgheddy_zarc if you only want apache then install apache only06:36
drizzt_ActionParsnip, of course you need DNS daemon because otherwise LAN computer will not be able to resolve addresses06:36
zetherooDasEi: oh ok.... No working leases ... etc ... it was only scanning eth* devices :(06:37
zetherooDasEi: can i get it to rescan?06:37
DasEizetheroo: dhclient06:37
DasEizetheroo: ctrl-c to stop the old one06:37
greezmunkeyrohanroy: paste the output of "ip route" (sans quotes)06:37
abhi_navgaurav: gheddy_zarc: sudo apt-get install apache doesnt that working?06:37
ActionParsnipdrizzt_: if the IP for the DNS is external to the LAN it will be used, you can use any public dns and the router wil push the request out to the lan. a dns daemon is not required, its just a nice thing to have06:37
ActionParsnippush out to the www* sorry06:38
gauravwhat is nick06:38
ActionParsnip!nick | gaurav06:38
ubottugaurav: Your nick is how people know you on IRC. Please don't change your nicknames too often (use /nick newnick), or it creates a lot of confusion. You should also !register your nick with Freenode.06:38
abhi_navgaurav: your nick is gaurav. my  nick is abhi_nav etc06:38
DasEigaurav is your nick06:38
drizzt_ActionParsnip, how LAN computers will know which DNS server is used by gateway?06:38
rohanroygreezmunkey: One sec, installing SSH so I can actually copy the output (was using vrdp up until now.)06:38
chelzdrizzt_: computers usually default to using their gateway as a dns server. gateways therefore usually have their own dns servers, which query ISP gateways06:39
gauravplz dude a easy process to install apache in karmic kola06:39
DasEidrizzt_: /etc/resolv.conf06:39

zetheroo1DasEi: usually it's always just zetheroo ... but now its changed to zetheroo1 ...06:45
ActionParsnipdrizzt_: you can speed up web browsing by installing dnsmasq on your desktop pc and adding to your list of dns servers, keeps ip resolutions local so they don't have to keep going out to the web each time06:45
zetheroo1DasEi: yes, LAN pluggen in06:45

kurosHi, I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on a PowerEdge 2500 server via PXE. It works fine until near the end, right after it installs extra packages, and it suddenly stops and displays a grey screen with a bunch of text on it...06:57
zetheroo1soreau: this is karmic ... fully updated06:57
greezmunkeyrohanroy: but, be prepared to reverse this if you lose communications06:57
artinstartinhow can i put gnome into autostart to solve the lucid update bug i need some human assistance thank you06:57
kurosIt has things lke /usr/lib/locale/en_us_utf/LC_IDENTIFICATION and /lib/id-2.9.so written on it. Does anyone know what is going wrong?06:57

rohanroygreezmunkey: Should I delete the current default route BEFORE i connect to the vpn?06:58
oriactionparsnip it looks like disabling the screensaver did it... why?06:58
zetheroo1DasEi: screen is off :P06:58
AnirbanHazraDasEi: Can u give me little bit details abt it , how to do it ?06:58
greezmunkeyrohanroy: you can try that, and see if you can get the vpn up, I kind of doubt that will work though...Let me check a few things...06:59
zetheroo1DasEi: what about reconfiguring X? would that matter?06:59
DasEiAnirbanHazra: basic syntax is like copy , rsync [OPTION...] [USER@]HOST:SRC... [DEST]06:59

DasEiAnirbanHazra: rsync -avz -e ssh remoteuser@remotehost:/remote/dir /this/dir07:03
greezmunkeyrohanroy: It's simple, you are using the Internet to reach the destination IP in order to set the tunnel up, if you remove the default gw first the tunnel cannot be set up.07:04
MononaI installed the nVidia driver and now my desktop goes nowhere after the Ubuntu splash screen.  How do I fix this from a live CD?  I'm running Hardy, with a nVidia Corporation G72 GeForce 7300 LE.07:04

artinstartincan u isue the live usb of lucid to put the gnome-panel in the start up to fix the latest upgrade bug?07:04
DasEizetheroo1: way is : sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, then log off and back in, case it persists07:04
greezmunkeyrohanroy: you will have to add the route statements into your ip-up script, that gets executed once the tunnel is established.07:05
soreauMonona: mount the file system then edit xorg.conf and set Driver "nv" instead of "nvidia"07:05
ActionParsnipMonona: you can chroot and remove the nvidia driver using apt-get or create an xorg.conf file to force the system to use vesa driver07:05
Mononasoreau: How do I do that?07:05
rohanroygreezmunkey: Can I just add them manually from the command line, after I establish the link?07:05

ActionParsnipMonona: you may need an xorg.conf file to get the driver going07:09
greezmunkeyrohanroy: Question, what did you do to establish the PPTP tunnel?07:09
soreauMonona: For example, if your linux root partition is the only one on the first hard drive, it will likely be called /dev/sda1. Then you can mount it with 'mount /dev/sda1 /mount/point/directory' then you can access that directory as the root of your file system on the hard drive07:09

ubottuA 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?08:13
HorizonXPso what's the best way for me to carry Ubuntu on my usb stick?08:13
abhi_navsiddhantchd: whats your question?08:13
hipitihopsiddhantchd, gparted allows you to do many things including extending a partition with an os is installed.I would however not suggest shrinking a partition with an installed OS unless you know what you re doing08:14
bazhangHorizonXP, unetbootin08:14
siddhantchdhow to extend the spce in the ubuntu drtive08:14
siddhantchdi cant install anything on it08:14
HorizonXPi tried the casper-rw persistent storage method, but as soon as I did updates, it filled up my 2gb casper-rw file08:14
Ashokabhi_nav: give me irc for java08:14
abhi_navsiddhantchd: use gparted, see msg from hipitihop08:14
abhi_navAshok: #java :P08:14
tkmrsiddhantchd: If you can't use install gparted into your OS, then download a LiveCD of it08:15
siddhantchdi have already installed ubuntu08:15
siddhantchdis it possible?08:15
HorizonXPbazhang: unetbootin just makes a bootable usb stick from which I can install ubuntu. it's not persistent.08:15
thedarkI guess you gave up...08:15
hipitihopsiddhantchd, see your System..Administration menu, gparted may already be installed08:15
siddhantchdthanx a lot08:15
bazhangHorizonXP, you can /msg ubottu usb , or alternatively check pendrivelinux.com08:15
tkmrDoes GParted come with Ubuntu now?08:15
rabbit1^mNotIntelligent: looks like?08:16
abhi_navtkmr: yes08:16
abhi_navtkmr: in livecd.08:16
HorizonXPbazhang: i followed pendrivelinux's method, which worked well up to the point that all installed packages just wrote into the persistent storage, rather than overwrite the existing files in the "iso"08:17
tkmrabhi_nav: well bviously on the livecd. I mean once the OS is actuall yinstalled. =P08:17
hipitihopcan soemone tell me how to debug why a userid locks up login screen when clicked on before even password prompt08:17
GhostFreemanHow can you pull down just the code from a git repository without creating one?08:17
HorizonXPso when i do software updates, i quickly run out of space08:17
^mNotIntelligentrabbit1, what exactly you want to know , what is the problem you are facing  ?08:17
abhi_navtkmr: you can install gparted after os is installed08:17
bazhangtkmr, once installed you have to apt-get it08:17
bazhangHorizonXP, what size usb key08:17
HorizonXPbazhang: i have an 8gb key, but the casper-rw is 2gb08:18
HorizonXPyes, the easy answer is to make it bigger08:18
tkmrOk. So it doesn't come pre-installed. Right-o. I'm using Arch atm. Just helpful to know when... helping people. =P08:18
rabbit1^mNotIntelligent: no problem at all, need to know its 32 or 64 bit and upgrade to 64 bit lucid end of april08:18
bazhangHorizonXP, that is more than big enough imo, even 4gb could do it08:18
abhi_navtkmr: hmmm08:18
bazhangrabbit1, its 32 bit08:18
yudun1989any body tell me how to see the head texts when I use dumpe2fs?08:19
HorizonXPbazhang: well, somehow, after allowing ubuntu to pull the most recent updates, it filled up the 2gb casper-rw08:19
hipitihopHorizonXP, I have even had it installed on 2gb, not much space for installs after though08:19
rabbit1bazhang: its it detected by i686 ?08:19
bazhangrabbit1, 'upgrading' to 64 bit will mean a full reinstall08:19
HorizonXPunless I can find an ISO with the most recent updates slipstreamed in08:19
bazhangrabbit1, correct08:19
rabbit1what will 64 bit look like? can u msg me urs ?08:19
bazhangHorizonXP, you may wish to remaster a minimal iso then08:20
^mNotIntelligentrabbit1, your os is 32 bit, and you can't do an upgarde from 32 bit to 64 bit, unless you go fro a fresh install08:20
hipitihoprabbit1, 64bit will look the same08:20
bazhangrabbit1, how much ram08:21
rabbit1ok, then, will upload a lucid 64 bit and the make a CD/DVD the install from scratch.... rite? what will happen to my programs later ?08:21
bazhanghipitihop, he means the kernel08:21
sqwertleI've had little success finding an answer to this elsewhere but I believe it's a fairly simple question: Is there a difference in socket programming in C and in C++?08:21
rabbit1bazhang: 2 GB...... i dont have to partition again rite?08:21
hipitihopbazhang, ok sorry, that will teach me to but in08:21
bazhangrabbit1, no advantage to using 64 bit then08:21
^mNotIntelligentrabbit1, 32 bit can handle upto ~3GB and 32bit server edition will easily handle 4GB... so no worries...08:22
rabbit1bazhang: will get 4 GB DDR RAM if required,08:22
bazhang^mNotIntelligent, he just needs the linux-generic-pae package for 32bit desktop rabbit108:22
bazhang^mNotIntelligent, not the server kernel08:22
bazhangrabbit1, then install linux-generic-pae to use all 4gb08:23
^mNotIntelligentbazhang, yeas rightly said... Physical Addrs Extension supported kernel08:23
=== nikolam_ is now known as nikolam
hipitihopcan someone explain if it is possible for different user login sessions can be running different wm e.g. gnome vs kde ?08:23
rabbit1bazhang: getting confused here, presently i have 2GB and i can't go for 64 bit08:23
jadakrenhipitihop, yes.08:24
rabbit1bazhang: the i need to get new 4GB DDR RAM, together 6 GB, and then can i go for lucid 64 bit, and i also need to extend my one of the partition, (guess swap)08:24
^mNotIntelligentbazhang, even sever edition will do the job... I've been using the "Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-16-server" for making use of all my RAM , 4gigs08:24
hipitihopjadakren, so if I have a broken user which will not even go past login screen even prior password prompt ... how can I reset/revert/reinstall a standard gnome session08:25

rabbit1bazhang: u got my msg?08:27
bazhang^mNotIntelligent, no need for server kernel just install linux-generic-pae on 32bit08:27
bazhangrabbit1, no08:27
rabbit1getting confused here, presently i have 2GB and i can't go for 64 bit. the i need to get new 4GB DDR RAM, together 6 GB, and then can i go for lucid 64 bit, and i also need to extend my one of the partition, (guess swap)08:28
bazhangrabbit1, just read it, then if you have 6gb sure go for 64bit08:28
bazhangrabbit1, do you have a separate home partition08:28
caffeinatedحيو الشباب08:28
bazhangcaffeinated, english please08:29
rabbit1bazhang: yeap, separate home....08:29
^mNotIntelligentbazhang, taht might be a better option , but server kernel does the job... but might be an overkill for this... i've been using it though, without facing any issues..08:29
sqwertleIs socket programming in C the same as in C++?08:29
Ashokany1 tell me the difference bw halt & shutdown command08:29

bazhang^mNotIntelligent, at any rate rabbit1 is getting 6gb so going for 64bit08:29
rabbit1bazhang: conclusion, can't get 64 bit lucid on 2GB ...... fixed ?08:29
Ashokiam able to run halt but whenever iam try to run shutdown they give me run as root08:29
bazhangrabbit1, sure go for it, no problems with 64bit08:30
^mNotIntelligentbazhang, cool....08:30
bazhangAshok, use sudo08:30
GneaAshok: that's normal08:30
abhi_navAshok: yes you do sudo shutdown [option]08:30
rabbit1bazhang: on 2 GB?08:30
bazhangrabbit1, sure, you said you would get more ram later, so no big deal08:30
rabbit1bazhang: ok, kool then, now a days its DDR3, DDR2 is old which i got 1 yr back :)08:31
bazhangrabbit1, you can use 64bit no matter the ram if your processor allows it08:31
bazhangrabbit1, just pointing out the pluses and minuses08:31
theadminWhat happened to apt-get's manpage? Where did super cow power go to?08:31

abhinavpicca: I doubt there is going to be any issue with virtualbox support08:40
meganerdpicca: so yes it is easy to install.  Vmware can be less than fun, what with all the binary modules.  I am also have a copy of VMWare workstation that I bought myself and have been upgrading dutifullly.  I just finally ditched it for Virtualbox08:40

tusharhow to install java for ff08:41
meganerdpicca: if you don't need USB, the OSE edition that you get via apt (or the GUI front ends) works quite well.08:41
piccameganerd, virtualbox it is then .. can't wait to see how XP performs under Ubuntu (don't mind it being slow, as long as i can run it)08:41
ActionParsnip!java | tushar08:41
ubottutushar: To install a Java runtime/interpreter on Ubuntu, look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java - For the Sun Java products search for sun-java6 -packages from the !Multiverse repository08:41
rocket16theadmin: Does chmod command give it the executable permisions? And, it is saying that "Can not execute binary file"08:41
piccameganerd, ah, it doesn't support usb then08:41
abhinavIn addition to what meganerd said, I found vmware slower than virtualbox, and some things like shared folders were not available with the vmware free version08:41
joschisqwertle: but if you're really into c++ including advanced oop stuff, you might want to use an oo library like boost instead08:42
joschisqwertle: http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_40_0/doc/html/boost_asio/overview/networking/bsd_sockets.html08:42
abhi_navpicca: xp is bit slow on vm. i use it in vm. but we can do task on it08:42
meganerdpicca: on my dual core laptop XP is pretty much the same as it is on hardware.  You can get USB support by downloading the free as in beer edition from Sun08:42

abhinavpicca: remember to install the guest additions also (from within virtualbox) after installing windows (or whatever you're planning to install). This enables shared folders, better mouse/keyboard navigation, etc.08:46
tusharyes will check that out it is based on Open JDK which I have installed , worth trying out :)08:47
piccaabhinav, what are guest additions08:47
sqwertlejoschi: I'm afraid I have no idea what that is.08:48
theadminWhere was that codename suggestions wiki page? Can't find it, that search thing on Wiki is dumb08:48
abhinavpicca: they are some addons available from virtualbox, which enable few features. I *think* they are guest-specific, as they need to be installed after the guest OS is installed.08:48
theadminabhinav: Yep, they run on Linux with X and Windows... I THINK they run on Solaris, but am totally unsure08:49
piccaabhinav, it is now installing Windows XP - this is excellent ... this means i can carry this image on an external hard drive and use it across all my laptops08:49

mtx_inittheadmin: nothing, im trying to get vdpau to work08:58
mtx_initbut I need mplayer08:58
mtx_initi added the vdpau repo PPA as well08:58
theadminmtx_init: I just removed it and installed it back, it works fine... Strangeness08:58
abhinavmtx_init: try what theadmin mentioned. If it doesn't help, try tracing the dependencies (do apt-get install mplayer-nogui and see if it succeeds, else why it fails ..and so on)08:58
abhinavmtx_init: brute force, but works sometimes - apt-get needs a push once in a while :)08:59
mtx_initnogui needs libvdpau1, but that had no installation canidate08:59
theadminmtx_init: Wait, did you say you added a third-party repo?08:59
mtx_inittheadmin: yes I vdpau PPA09:00
mtx_initI read I needed it09:00
theadminmtx_init: Try removing it, then do sudo apt-get update and see if it helps. It might have broken something, since everything for mplayer IS in Ubuntu's repos, and now it can't get it because of this... uh, i understand it but i can't phrase it normally09:01
KamaLhello, i'm having problems updating the XMLRPC=C library on ubuntu server... anyone has experience wit it?09:02
abhinavtheadmin: true - I have mplayer installed, and libvdpau is not even in the repos09:02
abhinavtheadmin: so it's probably not required, mtx_init09:02
mtx_initwell it was after I got the vdpau stuff that it broke09:03
mtx_initi usually use vlc09:03
Ashokwil power dvd can be run in ubuntu09:03
mtx_initit still says this guys mplayer: Depends: mplayer-nogui but it is not going to be installed09:04
mtx_inite01: Broken packages09:04

AvocadobrideI am not getting any sound, I have been searching the net for a while, and I dont think my sound card is detected09:08
mtx_inittp43: yes it says it needs mplayer-nogui, which is not availible09:08
tp43mtx_init, if you install mplayer-nogui, then you can't install mplayer, you have install one or the other, but you can still use mplayer on command line09:08

tp43I am thinking of buying a printer, is there any advise.  Should I install foomatic, or is there something else in Ubuntu.  Cause I was thinking I would take my laptop, and test the printer driver first, before I buy, so I wanted to make sure I had the drivers installed first.  Or is there a database to check for printer support09:23
abhinaveliminyro: ok. and your monitor supports that refresh rate I assume. are you using the proprietary ATI drivers ? they might help09:23
muglaunivwhy cant I have a chat to people from my list when i double-click them?09:23
AvocadobrideI downloaded some drivers and It came in a whole lot of .c and .h files, I dont know what to do wth it09:23

muglaunivim using Xchat09:24
tp43Avocadobride, dude, I don't think downloading drivers are a good idea, you should use the kernel you have, or get them from Ubuntu repos09:24
eliminyroabhinav, remove installed driver, of course )09:24
abhinaveliminyro: that should work09:24
Avocadobridewhat does that mean :309:24

Avocadobridecan anyone help me with my audio issue, apparently my onboard audio card doesnt exist other than when I type lspci | grep audio.10:07
dummyNickAvocadobride, can you provide some more detaisl on thta issue10:08
naoshigeI'm getting this "No buffer space available" through a wide variety of tools from browsers to FTP clients, making it almost impossible to establish web connections. Like, to see a webpage, I have to reload it like 10 times before it appears, and even then most of the images won't load. Downloads, once a connection has been established though, work fine. I'm using Windows XP through an Ubuntu firewall with a Broadcom NetXtreme 57xx NIC.10:08
AvocadobridedummyNick, it is an Aureal Vortex 2 onboard sound10:08
ResistolFriGiN, I'm using a livecd (ultimate bootcd ->gparted) because ubuntu 8-10.10 went to a blank screen.10:08
dummyNickAvocadobride, did you try googling the same10:08
AvocadobridedummyNick yeah, Ive been surfing forums for a bit10:08
AvocadobridedummyNick bout an hour, but either the problem wasnt the same, or I had no idea what they were saying10:09
dummyNickAvocadobride, whats the output for lscpi|grep audio , how do you conclude that you dont have an audio card10:09
AvocadobridedummyNick Audio works fine in windows 710:09
FriGiNResistol: trust me im not the one to talk to about it.. im just asking the obvious..10:09
AvocadobridedummyNick in sound preferences there is no output other than dummy output and nothing in hardware, the ouput is 01:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Aureal Semiconductor Vortex 2 (rev fe)10:10
ResistolThere is enough room for me to move the important things back to the old Vista Partition... maybe I'll throw things back there, then check the new Partition and see if that help10:10
Resistolif not, maybe i can just reformat the new partition10:11
AbortDyou're on the live cd?10:11
nanneshi all... how do I do if I can't format (or modify partition table) of a flash USB drive?10:11
nannesI inserted it, found it on 'lsusb' (and also /dev/sdb come created), BUT I can't access to it (tried with many partition tools)10:11
nanneshere the dmesg -----> http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/398680/10:11
AbortDand you are having trouble viewing partitions in browser?10:11
AvocadobridedummyNick my user account didnt have privelages to use audio devices, but I fixed that10:12
CQnannes: what does sudo fdisk -l say? (should list all devices and partitions)10:12
nannesCQ: nothing abount sdb.... only hard drive detected10:13
dummyNickAvocadobride, if your audio works fine in Win7 that clearly says you dont have hardware issues,,, must be some audio driver issue with your current OS10:13
AvocadobridedummyNick, also there are 9 updates I cant download, for some reason, could they have anything to do with it?10:13
AvocadobrideI dont know what to do10:13
tp43Avocadobride, you did ext4 filesystem?10:13
ResistolAbortD, I am on the ultimatebootcd livecd, using gparted.  i can mount the partitions fine - and i can see the files... it's just that the browser thinks my 36gb drive is an 11gb full drive...  so i'm getting "disk full" errors10:13
dummyNickAvocadobride, not sure... unless you give me the list,,, can you paste those 9 in pastebin10:13
AvocadobridedummyNick what is pastebin10:14

AbortDok sorry i cant help you on that then10:14
nannesCQ: no it doesn't :(10:15
ResistolAbortD, I'm going to copy everything to the other working partition, then delete some stuff on the 'full' partition and see if gparted can repair it10:15
AvocadobridedummyNick I dont know how to get the information to paste, I dont think it has anyrthing to do with it though10:15
dummyNickAvocadobride, go to the link mentioned and paste those 9 updates which you're not able to do ...and then give me the link that pastebin gives you... i just want to go thru that to make sure it has nothing to do with your audio drivers10:15
dummyNickAvocadobride, if you are sure about that... then no need to show me that... but I'm pretty sure its some driver issue10:15

mobius2  file type make the drive any less temperamental (  i.e.  having to occasionally run  chkdsk -f in windows  or the drive wont mount in ubuntu  )10:29
mobius2*formatted  scuse the typo10:29

tp43Avocadobride, you did some bad disk partitioning?10:31
Avocadobridewhere is the pastebin again10:31

Go to http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/ and search for your sound card (chipset) manufacturer in the dropdown box. You'll be given a matrix of the sound cards made by the manufacturer.

rocket16Hello all. For mathematical programming, which is better? Octave or Feemat?11:34
Consul_Falxmeganerd: well, the frontend doesn't allow me to change refresh rate, it's on the only possible value11:34
malik__guys i can not mount my external HDD which i previously used with windows11:34
tp43rocket16, what you talking about11:34
rocket16tp43: Is there anything wrong?11:35
MilpHow do i restart a already running lxde thing?11:35
ukebaneTime`s_Witness, try sudo rmmod pcspkr11:35
tp43rocket16, no, I mean, what programming of what mathematics you wanna do?11:35
malik__i get this error: http://pastebin.com/JHdLPTwb11:35
Time`s_Witnessdoes that link sound trusty?11:35
Time`s_Witnesshum. ok11:35
Time`s_Witnessukebane, by typing sudo rmmod pcspkr i get "ERROR: Module pcspkr does not exist in /proc/modules11:36
ukebanethe link doesn't have any dodgyness in it11:36
rocket16tp43: Just simple once, like plotting graphs etc., I tried both, Freemat and Octave. But couldn't fgure out which is better11:36
tp43rocket16, oh, gnuplot11:36

ukebanewhat about sudo rmmod snd_pcsp11:37
rocket16tp43: Thanks, but I wanted a console, like Feemat or Octave, :(11:37
Avocadobrideabhinav: nothing is working11:37
rocket16tp43: And, CAS are nice, but a Console is better11:37
Avocadobrideabhinav: I did the recompile thing11:37

hyperstreamis it possible to make my ./home/hyperstream/test run as: test in termal, rather than typing the whole thing ?11:37
Avocadobrideabhinav: everything worked fine11:37
tp43rocket16, there was one I tried that intergrates with gnuplot, but I can't remember what it is called, something like mathmatika,11:37
=== BrendenB is now known as Guest76146
rocket16tp43: Mathomatic? (Mathematics is a commercial software). I tried Sage too, :) and wxMaxima is grand11:38
Consul_Falxokey folks, how do I inquire which method my xserver is using now?11:38
tp43rocket16, no not that one, it was something like xmathmatica11:38
rocket16tp43: Oh! Searching it then, thanks for telling it,11:39
Guest77118at boot i sometimes get error messages on the screen what way can i view them? there gone to0 quick11:39
Time`s_Witnessheh trying a reboot :)11:39
tp43rocket16, more like XMathmatics11:39
abhinavAvocadobride: still the same issue ?11:39
Avocadobrideabhinav: yes,it is driving me mad11:39
=== patrick is now known as Guest68301
abhinavAvocadobride: did you check lshw etc to see if some o/p changed ?11:39
rocket16tp43: Oh, thanks. Just searching and returning11:39
tp43rocket16, ok, let me know if you find it, cause I can't at the momen11:40
Avocadobrideabhinav: lshw?11:40
rocket16tp43: Sure,11:40
Avocadobrideabhinav: I am noob so w hat do I type?11:40

tp43rocket16, yeah, maxima11:40
pulse00is it possible to setup a ssh key-pair for the apache user ?11:41
rocket16tp43: Maxima? I am using it already thanks. I am using it on wxMaxima, a GUI to it, :)11:41
tp43rocket16, oh, cool, well, you needed something more?11:41
ukebaneGuest77118, you can view them with dmesg11:41
ukebaneor if you want to save it to a file dmesg > dmesg.txt11:42
emilienhyperstream: Try PATH=$PATH:/home/hyperstream/test11:42
rocket16tp43: Actually, yes. Because I just saw that no programme can be made with it, but with Freemat and Octave you can write scripts11:42
hyperstreamemilien, thanks mate :)11:42
tp43rocket16, cool, never tried those, good luck, you are a rocket scientist?11:42
Avocadobrideabhinav: you could use ssh, and I could execute anything that needs root privelages11:42

hyperstreamemilien, test command not found :(11:43
tp43rocket16, qt and gtk are the popular linux programming languages11:43
abhinavAvocadobride: sudo lshw (you did this before and put it into pastebin)11:43
tp43rocket16, I was a rocket science student but then when I got older, I gave up, cause I didn't like the real world11:44
rocket16tp43: Yes, trying gtk, but isn't it an interface designer rather than Programming language?11:44
tp43So now I a
