abstrakthi, i was in here the other day asking about and was basically successful in editing my grub config to change the default boot item00:01
wjmstill freezes on the same two sites00:01
WhiteDawnwjm: can you paste bin the firefox error?00:01
abstrakti'd like to change the default again but i don't remember what file i specifically should edit, since things are diff now with the latest grub00:01
wjmWhiteDawn: will do00:01
wjmpaste.ubuntu right ?00:01
Eighteensi installed ubuntu 8.01 on a older machine today, it did well during install, nice screens, mouse and keyboard worked, then after installation it freezes when i try to go into X, so then i tried startx -- -depth 16 and it went, but then i have no mouse, and keyboard is unresposive00:01
ActionParsnipWjm: try the firefox ppa. Chromium daily is sweeeet00:01
abstraktwhat file do i actually change to update the default grub selection?00:01

wjmyeah, I'm technically minded :P00:02
eremiteEighteens: possibly force the vesa drivers?  Had a similar problem with another distro once and the vesa drivers saved the day.00:02
wjmI just can't figure this out00:02

darkvoid82question from a new ubuntu user. how exaclty does one mount the dvdrom drive. is it put disc in and it runs like in windows or are there commands one must type in?00:02
eremitedarkvoid82: just put the DVD in and wait for the pop-up asking you what you would like to do.00:03
smerzHey FloodBot1 is your job protection or flooding? ^_^00:03
wjmI think FD is file descriptors no?00:03
abstraktiustinian, ok cool, got it, so now don't i have to run a grub update script or something?00:03
darkvoid82eremite, i put a dvd in and got nothing00:03
iustinianabstrakt: yes indeed00:03
smerzdarkvoid82, is it a dvd video you want to watch?00:03
eremitedarkvoid82: be aware of the fact that many DVDs do not work on computers due to copyright DRM.  You need to install the proper codecs to break through that veil.00:03
abstraktiustinian, k and what script is that?00:03
dmdevoteehey, i installed flashplugin-installer from the repos, but when i go to youtube, it continues asking me for installing flash player. what's the matter?00:03
Typos_Kingwjm:   what firefox version?   how did you install it?00:04
MaT-dghow to share internet connection with an ah-hoc wireless network (with GUI)?00:04
Eighteenswhats the command line to foce a ps2 mouse, it worked during install, but wont work when X tries to load00:04
iustinianabstrakt: update-grub00:04
abstraktiustinian, k thx00:04
wjmTypos_King: with 3.5 at first - then tried PPA then tried Chrome00:04
darkvoid82smerz: yes, eremite: ah that would make sense, any idea which codecs I might need00:04
toyman61eremite: No, not so far..00:04
Typos_Kingwjm:   tried getting the .bz2 package from mozilla.org yet?00:04
smerzdarkvoid82, install "ubuntu-restrictedextras" or something. hang on ill look it up00:05
eremitetoyman61: what?"00:05
wjmnot yet, that was gonna be the next idea00:05
WhiteDawnwjm: http://bit.ly/bhM23m00:05
darkvoid82smerz: i've got the restricted extras00:05
Typos_Kingwjm:   that's what I use, it requires no install btw, just unzip, and run00:05
eremitedarkvoid82: open yoru add/remove apps utility and search for Restricted Extras\00:05
eremitenm00:05
ubutomdmdevotee, using lucid?00:05
smerzdarkvoid82, "sudo apt-get install libdvdread4"00:06
WhiteDawnwjm: its in launchpad as a upstream bug00:06
wjmWhiteDawn: yeah just saw that00:06
wjmLemme try that00:06
smerzdarkvoid82, install that package. Then try putting the dvd back in again. Otherwise you could just open vlc (a media player I'd highly recommend) and select "File" -> "open disc"00:07
darkvoid82eremite: i remember geting them, smerz: got thr libdvdread400:07
Dougwiserok I wanna buy an all in one printer that is fully supported in ubuntu00:07
wjmWhiteDawn: am I supposed to add this key/value to about:config or is it supposed to be there?00:07
dmdevoteeubutom: lucid is name for 9.10? yes, lucid00:08
toyman61eremite: No, I have not tried any other sound formats so far..00:08
WhiteDawnwjm: should be there, if not you can add it00:08
smerzdarkvoid82, then i'd suggest vlc media player. "sudo apt-get install vlc". Then under applications -> sound & video -> Vlc media player. Then "File" -> "open disc"00:08
ubutomdmdevotee, no, 9.10 is karmic. well, never mind, i upgraded from 8.04lts to lucid and had some problems with flashplugin-installer too00:08
eremitetoyman61: well them you should.00:08

DarkStar1ANyone?00:09
darkvoid82smerz: no pop ups for dvd music cd or data cd00:10
ubutomdmdevotee, no problem, I just thought maybe it was related. I couldn't remove or install it ;)00:10
toyman61OK. But I have nearly 30 GB of sound-data in mp3-format. If I must convert them to i.e. Ogg-Vorbis I will go back to Windows again.. :-(00:10
ar0njesus really lol? so yes it was like a repo i had to add becuase ubuntu quit carrying it..anyone have any idea?00:10
wjmWhiteDawn: looks like FF is still freezing on the site though :(00:10
metbsdis ubuntu the best? cuz im gonna play it00:10
toyman61eremite: OK. But if I must convert my 30 GB of mp3's to i.e. Ogg-Vorbis then I will consider going back to Windows again..00:10
ubutomdmdevotee, tryusing software-center from menu and search for adobe00:10
iustiniantoyman61: look for fluendo mp3 decoder00:10
zachster10hello00:10
smerztoyman61, why do you want to convert mp3 to ogg? I got all my music as mp300:11
sik4morethello00:11
iustiniantoyman61: it is a legal gstreamer plugin00:11
ubutomdmdevotee, I just installed the firefox extension and flash works fine now00:11
WhiteDawnwjm: apparently its a bug in the PPA for firefox00:12
wjmWhiteDawn: yeah it's affecting 3.5 and 3.6 though too00:12
toyman61smerz: I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bits) and have migrated from Windows. I have lots of mp3's, but I am not able to get any sound through my loadspeakers..00:12
iustinianlast time i checked mplayer was working ok with mp3s00:12
wjmalso happens in Chrome00:12
sik4mpret:D00:12
toyman61smerz: Somebody told me to try another sound format. Then I suggested Ogg-Vorbis..00:12
smerztoyman61, well rest assured. That has nothing to do with your music beeing in the mp3 format00:12
dmdevoteei can't even install it from http://get.adobe.com/es/flashplayer/ for firefox00:13
darkvoid82!tab00:13
ubottuYou can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.00:13
smerztoyman61, so you get no sound whatsoever that's your issue right?00:13
toyman61smerz: I know. But I have installed restricted formats-package, and was trying to play a music CD through Rythmbox. But no sound whatsever..00:13
Typos_Kingtoyman61:   check your mixer setting/sliders00:13
toyman61Typos_King: I have set all my mixer settings (alasmixer) to max.00:14
iustiniansome channels are muted by default00:14
smerztoyman61, I dont think its a format issue. mp3 is just fine :). Do you have multiple sound cards?00:14
toyman61smerz: Only one sound card. Works great under Windows XP SP3. I have only disabled the Windows disk and installed Ubuntu another disk.00:15
toyman61another disk = on another disk00:15
iustiniantoyman61: what soundcard is that ?00:15
smerztoyman61, alright. Right click on the speaker icon at the top right. Select sound preferences00:15
amaureaHello. I have an application I am trying to run fullscreen, but the task bar and other bar still show up and take up considerable space. How can I get them not to show up when running a game in fullscreen?00:15
smerztoyman61, select the "output" tab. There will be multiple outputs for your soundcard. Try them all while playing music. Make sure sound isn't muted in either the music player or the icon @ top right00:16
toyman61iustinian: Realtek audio (embedded on the MSI motherboard)00:16
ubutomamaurea,right click on the bars and selec auto-hide00:17
toyman61smerz: I will00:17
WhiteDawnamaurea: you could set the bar to auto hide,00:17
smerzrealtek should be just fine toyman6100:17

kidovateHello?00:18
Freshiustinian: how do i acess it after the ampersand00:18
amaureaubutom, WhiteDawn: ok, I'll try that. I do like to have the bars there when I'm in normal resolution, though, and the game isn't in full screen. What does the expand option in the panel properties mean?00:18
kidovateHow do you install software from a ppa??00:18
sik4mprethelllooo....00:19
sik4mprethelp me out00:19
harisundkidovate: You add the PPA as a repository and then search for softwares as you normally would00:19
WhiteDawnsik4mpret: ask the question, then ppl will help you00:19
bazhangsik4mpret, ask a question00:19
toyman61But here's another problem: My D-Link DWA-140 installed fine, and it works!  But I only get 54 Mbps speed even though both the adapter and the router is 802.11n. How do I solve this ?00:19
ubutomif you deavtivate it it gets thinner amurea00:19
smerzkidovate, you need to add the ppa to /etc/apt/sources.list00:19
Freshwhitedawn: how do i get back to it after i use &00:19
ubutomif you deavtivate it it gets thinner amaurea00:19
smerzkidovate, next you need to import the ppa key00:19
toyman61Typos_King: Problem solved. The loudspeaker was muted. But thanx for your interest!00:19
harisundsmerz: there's a better way than that, you shouldn't be adding it to/etc/apt/sources.list directly .. there's a command whch adds it to /etc/sources.list.d00:19
WhiteDawnFresh: that i don't know, you can kill it though if you want it to quit00:19
smerzkidovate, now you can just use "sudo apt-get install packagename" or the package manager to install00:19
smerzharisund, oh can you give more info on that? I never heard of that00:20
iustiniantoyman61: 802.1n is pretty much still experimental it depends on the actual implementations00:20
FreshWhiteDawn: im getting closer to answering this question00:20
kidovateharisund: I added it but I cant find the software... Can you recommend how? It's here - https://launchpad.net/~ajmitch/+archive/ppa00:20
harisundsmerz: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:user/ppa-name00:20

smerzharisund, and that takes care of the key as well?00:21
PlaHPoyis there any need to purchase RE3 or RE4 server drives if I am running RAID1,  seems with the fault tolerence I could run 2 black editions and save 150 bucks.... ???00:21
toyman61iustinian: But I thought the IEEE 802.11n standard had gone from experimental to a clear standard.00:21
harisundsmerz: I believe so yes00:21
WhiteDawnFresh: no problem00:21
smerzharisund, well thanks thats good to know :)00:21
harisundkidovate: Once you have added it, do an apt-get update and search for the package00:21
harisundsmerz: https://help.launchpad.net/Packaging/PPA/InstallingSoftware00:21
toyman61It works great on Windows XP SP3..00:21
iustiniantoyman61: indeed but not all the producers have updated their lines of products00:22
kidovateharisund: I already did. I cant find it00:22
smerzkidovate, "sudo apt-get update" You need to update the repository first00:22
billy_can someone help when i try connecting to my webpage through filezilla it wont work and no-one is on the offical page00:22
kidovatesmerz: I already did that00:22
harisundsmerz: apparently he did. kidovate if you did, are you searching for the packagename correctly?00:22
kidovateThat's what I asked you00:22
kidovateThe listed name doesn't seem to work...00:23
toyman61iustinian: I see. D-Link does not offer Linux-drivers for this adapter, but there is drivers available for Ubuntu. One driver is shipped with the 9.10-edition..00:23
harisundkidovate: boost1.38  is what youare trying to install?00:23

billy_does anyone know anything about filezilla? i really need help?00:24
kidovateWhen I do a apt-get install00:24
smerzrixxy, you could change the owner:group assignment00:24
rixxyin users and groups?00:24
harisundkidovate: let me check, is that the package you are trying to install though?00:24
smerzrixxy, no each file has an owner and a group assigned to it00:24
kidovateharisund: Yes00:25
iustiniantoyman61: u need to check the changelog on the kernel modules sources i guess00:25
smerzrixxy, normally the owner has read/write00:25
rixxysmerz: so the default user created?00:25
billy_come on guys dosnt anyone know ho to upload files on filezilla?#00:25
smerzrixxy, if not you may have to change those permissions. But you need to check where the issue lies. Either wrong owner/grp or wrong permissions. Both can easily be fixed00:25
toyman61iustinian: That seems to be a too heavy job for me... I know Windows (and computers) very well, but I am not that familiar with Ubuntu..00:26

smerzbilly_, you're trying to use ftp right?00:26

sje46A user on the computer '::ffff:211.139.127.242' is trying to remotely view or control your desktop.  Do you want to allow them to do so?00:52
sje46I turned remote desktop off, of course00:52
bloodrockar0n,  yes you can install without formatting if it same ver it may not overwrite home folder not sure00:52
sje46but I forgot to click no on the request, and I can't find it anywhere00:52
ar0nnot worried ab out home00:52
sje46does it just disappear in time?00:53

ar0nyes00:55
ar0nlol00:55
IdleOnear0n: done or not. this channel is not for lucid support so you wont be getting much if any help with it.00:55
histoabstrakt: yes it would do you have a display manager like kdm installed?00:55
ar0nim not asking for it00:55
histoar0n: /j #ubuntu+100:56
abstrakthisto, yeah i logged in using kdm00:56
ar0nor for anyhelp about it. im asking simple ubuntu help00:56
IdleOnear0n: ok then like I explained to you yesterday about the fresh install and separate /home :)00:56
histoabstrakt: and kde doesn't load?00:56
abstrakthisto, when i installed kubuntu desktop, part of the configuration process asked me if wanted to use kdm or gdm, so i figured, hell i'll use kdm00:56
bloodrockhe not looking for help with lucid he wants to go back to 9.04 or 9.1000:56
ar0ni was asking more spefic questions sorry00:56
abstrakthisto, apparntly not00:56
abstrakthisto, i can run konqueror from the terminal, but there's no window management happening00:56
IdleOnebloodrock: yup, got it :)00:56
Alexisonfire...00:56
histoabstrakt: make sure you select on kdm you want kde as the default session00:56

sje46etzerd, I have not.  I don't even know how to00:57
IdleOnear0n: ubuntu does not have a revert back to previous install feature00:57
ar0nit wont help me save anything i cant get with a live cd, wont save settings etc00:57

sje46etzerd, ah, okay.  I think I'll wait until it officially comes ou tthough00:59
IdleOnear0n: only the install partition and the installer will do it for you00:59
etzerdbecause the last version 9.04 don't work with my new Dell Inspiron laptop00:59
histoar0n: pretty much thats the easiest way. If you want to save all your files and settings just make a seperate /home00:59
histoetzerd: what happened?00:59
ar0noh so will i point the new isntall at the other home i make?00:59
histoar0n: yeap it will then mount it on boot00:59
ar0nso it will use that info or just for back up purposes...00:59
yourmghq|skypehisto: i know what is wrong00:59
histoar0n: you have to use the same username on the new install as you did on the old one though01:00
JorkHello. Is somehow possible to get pytube for ubuntu, or some simillar app?01:00
yourmghq|skypeit does not recognize /dev/sr001:00
IdleOnear0n: no, you point the install to where the old install is. your /home contains your data you dont want to format01:00

etzerdsince I bought that laptop last month when I install the 9.04 version the screen went black, no graphic01:00

histoyourmghq|skype: ahh did you get it working?01:00
IdleOnehisto: from what I understood yesterday, it is already.01:00
abstrakthisto, aight, so KDE loads when I explicitly select KDE01:00

yourmghq|skypehisto:  sadly no, it does not know what /dev/sr0 is01:00
yourmghq|skypei tried burning in gnomebaler01:01
etzerdbecause the video card is an Intel Accelerator HD which is not support by any of the distro out there01:01
ar0nhmm ok.. IdleOne om *not sure, it was a regular install..01:01
hipitihopI have a bluetooth keyboard01:01
yourmghq|skypehisto i tried burning in gnomebaker01:01
histoabstrakt: yeah it sounds like it was loading a failsafe session where all you get is X and an xterm01:01
abstrakthisto, however, no internet... gnome works with both my wireless card and my WWAN01:01
=== sunkoo is now known as sexghost
abstrakthisto, yeh, kinda dumb imo, why isn't kdm already preconfigured to load either the last default or at least KDE, since it's kdm01:01
histoabstrakt: you may want to ask in #kubuntu I only have used gnome and other things01:01
abstrakthisto, actually don't answer that question01:01
abstraktlol01:01
abstrakti don't care why01:01
IdleOnear0n: ok well then take a look at the link ubottu gave you yesterday and you should be able to figure it out. the instructions are fairly simple if followed carefully01:01
histoabstrakt: well kdm or gdm can be used dosn't matter they don't care which one you want to load.01:02
ar0nyeah. im just confused as to what the benefits of saving it will be01:02
bloodrockar0n, use a livecd open gperted to ee how the partitians were setup01:02
histoar0n: all your data and settings will be saved. If you have nothing then it doesn't mater01:02
ar0na fresh install would be nice anyways..cause i didnt literally touch it after the first install01:02
IdleOnear0n: well if you have a lot of media files you don't want to lose01:02
ar0nnot enough i thikn, just some pictures i can get via live cd01:02
abstrakthisto, better yet, how do i actually bring up my wireless interface on cli01:02
IdleOnear0n: if not pop in the cd and go for it :)01:03
histoar0n: but I always create a seperate home when I install01:03
abstrakthisto, i'd rather just know that, i've done hardline ethernet plenty of times01:03
histoabstrakt: what type of wifi are you connecting to?01:03
yourmghq|skypehey histo why in the dev file does dvd not have a dvdrw file while cd also has a cdrw01:03
abstrakthisto, but never done a wireless on a laptop01:03
histoabstrakt: is it wpa2 or anything goofy?01:03
etzerdar0n: with the version 9.04 to work I have to use VESA and the resolution no more than 1024X768 which look very ugly.01:03

ar0nrandom stuff..01:03
hipitihopsorry, I have a bluetooth keyboard and mouse which pair via 'sudo hidd --search' but01:03

dmdevoteeanybody knows if there is any way to download djl from repos01:03

etzerdbut the new version 10.04 works fine with it01:03
ar0nidle yeah01:03
abstrakthisto, i also have an AT&T wireless card that "just works" under GNOME01:04

deserteagleetzerd, this would be where google comes in handy =\ sorry it's been a while ago01:10

histodmdevotee: there are people talking about it on the forums also01:12
eremitedeserteagle: you need to load a xserver equivilant in order to use graphical ANYTHING, so it must slwo boot times.  Even if you dont notice a 2 second lag or whatever, im sure it exists.01:12

eremiteLosha: nope.  ctrl alt bksp has been changed to something like super k prntscrn01:23
deserteaglebloodrock, ummm: 1) because I needed my previous setup and files 2) why would it mess it up if I didn't even touch the boot folder01:24
histobilly: just mv test.html index.html01:24
timmy54321hi if i upgrade my ubuntu 9.10 to ubuntu studio 9.10 will it erase everything and change my customisable settings back to default01:24
Loshaeremite: That depends on which release you're running, strictly speaking...01:24
eremiteLosha: the two most recent do not have it.01:24
gaveenhal, you could place the command in /etc/profile01:24
Loshaeremite: I'm still running 8.04 LTS. I'm sure I'm not alone...01:25
eremiteLosha: compiz users can still set it back to the original, though.01:25
fabio333<phongphrai>: still there01:25
halgaveen: that doesn't only run when someone logs in?01:25
smerztimmy54321, no most settings will remain. It is a BETA though so unless you want to upgrade for something specific i'd recommend against it01:25
eremiteLosha: any particular reason for running an old OS?01:25
billythanks for that m8 its working now : )01:25
[[thufir]]how do I enable "zap" ctrl-alt-backspace?01:25
histobilly: np01:25
bloodrockdeserteagle, because 9.10 and 9.04 are a bit diff and what worked with 9.04 would not work with 9.1001:25
sam555hello all!01:25
eremite!hi | sam55501:25
deserteaglebloodrock, o.O 9.04?01:25
Loshaeremite: the main reason: stability...01:25
ubottusam555: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!01:25
timmy54321ubuntu studio 9.10 is beta??01:25
ZykoticK9!dontzap > [[thufir]]01:26
ubottu[[thufir]], please see my private message01:26
deserteaglebloodrock, both the install cd and the backup were at 9.1001:26
sam555I installed ubuntu 9.10 for a friend that has never used linux before.  They continually are having problems and I'm wonder if I should just put windows 2000 on their computer :(01:26
LoshaZykoticK9: thank you...01:26
deserteagleyes01:26
sam555It's kinda a waste of my time if they can't use it on their own :(01:26
randomusrofftopic for a moment, does anyone here have qwest or other dsl?01:26
eremitesam555: LOL!  Nope.01:26
fabio333<ZykoticK9>: it took me several hours to figure out the dontzap trick01:26
ZykoticK9Losha, your welcome :)01:26
dmdevoteehey, how can i create a launcher that executes a sh file?01:26
sam555first she can't use her ipod to drag and drop songs using rhythm box01:26
DarkStar1ANy knowledgeable samba users here?? (Yes I've joined #samba but no one is alive there)01:26
eremitesam555: what problems are they having?  Linux copmputers can do almost everything Windows can, for free.01:26
sam555now she can't play movies with vlc or the movie player that is included01:26
phongphraifabio333, synopsis of functions should tell me that?01:26
kpomeroyI am trying to install a .deb but it says a software management tool is running but i don't have synaptic, the update manager or the terminal open. What else could be causing the problem?01:27
smerztimmy54321, oh my apologies. 9.10 is stable so go ahead :) sorry01:27
bloodrockdeserteagle,  oh yeah you used a new hdd forgot so the folders you copy pasted were for the old hdd so the uuid is different from the new hdd01:27
eremitesam555: has she installed the "restriced extras" packages?01:27
Loshasam555: there are worse solutions than going back to windows...01:27
randomusrsam555, are the proper codecs installed?01:27
dmdevoteei tried to make a launcher with the command sh /home/dmdevotee/djl.sh (the file exists and it haves all permissions)01:27
fabio333<phongphrai>: you want a part of the text to be editale, right?01:27
dmdevoteebut nothing happens when i click at the launcher01:27
WhiteDawnsam555: dont switch people, it will make your head hurt. Ignorance is bliss, but linux is more fun ;)01:27
deserteaglebloodrock, umm... but wouldn't that be in the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file? (which I didn't touch for that same reason)01:27
bloodrockdesert the folders were set to read the uuid of old hdd01:28
sam555WhiteDawn: ?01:28
eremiteLosha: its hardly recommended that people downgrade to Windows 2000 from Ubuntu, especially since they simply cannot play a video due to not having the codecs installed.01:28
skumbag<WhiteDawn> "ignorance is bliss" is an alan's parsong song01:28
deserteaglebloodrock, which folders?01:28
F0rkBombdmdevotee, use gnome-terminal -x /pathto/file.sh01:28
sam555eremite: let me check about the restricted packages, but what will that do?01:28
timmy54321sooo im confused upgrading from the standard ubuntu 9.10 to ubuntu studio 9.10 would be ok and settings will remain01:28
fabio333<phongphrai>: anyway the GtkTextView show the text in the TextBuffer, there you can use a Tab and set it as editable or not editable01:28
bloodrockdeserteagle,  yes but will also ber in the /dev folder01:28
phongphraifabio333, yes one part is and the other isnt , both in the same textview01:28
F0rkBombdmdevotee, make sure the script is executable01:28
deserteaglebloodrock, again, I didn't touch the /dev folder01:28
eremitesam555: you need the restricted extras package to play mp3s etc.  Open the software center and search for it.01:29
Loshaeremite: I agree, it probably shouldn't be the first resort, but for some people, it's a good solution...01:29
sam555Randomur: who would I tell re: codecs?01:29
eremiteLosha: Windows 200 for ANYTHING other than shooting practice is not recommended., not even by Micr$oft junkies.01:29
watatemwhat is the := operator in export command in a script?01:29
dmdevoteeForkbomb, thanks, where i have to type " gnome-terminal -x /pathto/file.s"?01:29
randomusrsamm555, follow eremite's instructions regarding restricted extra's01:30
eremitesam555: just install the restricted extras package, all problems solved hopefully.01:30
F0rkBombdmdevotee, right click the desktop -> create launcher01:30
WhiteDawneremite: windows 2000 makes a great abuse operating system for testing viruses in virtual box01:30
bloodrockdeserteagle,  i take it you put /boot on a seperate partitian01:30
eremiteWhiteDawn: ie; SHooting practice.01:30
Gelflingi still have a computer running windows 2k01:30
Loshatimmy54321: in theory yes, you can convert to ubuntu studio by adding the right packages. In practice, it's a lot of work, and probably not a well tested upgrade because so few people do it....01:30
deserteaglebloodrock, yes, both times (my old and new setup)01:30
F0rkBombdmdevotee, put the gnome-terminal command in the command box01:30
Gelflingand one running Windows ME01:30
eremiteGelfling: im sorry.01:30
eremitereally.01:31
randomusrthere is only two things I have trouble with on linux today. Playing BluRay, and outputting to HDMI01:31
Gelflingthe hard drive is failing in the ME one01:31
Gelflingso i can't do anything with it01:31
gaveenhal, sorry for the delay, need to crash soon. If your system uses a /etc/rc.sysinit you can place the command there01:31
randomusreverything else just works01:31
bloodrockdesert k boot was only folder you didn't copy01:31
deserteagleyah01:31
gregory57Hi all. I am having problems with memory I guess. When I boot into Ubuntu and open Firefox I immediatly go into swap.01:32
deserteaglelol, it does that01:32
gregory57Is this normal? 512 megs of ram.01:32
fabio333<gregory57>: drop the plugins01:32
deserteagleummm... maybe not THAT much01:32
Loshawatatem: I think it's bash syntax, do man bash and then type /:= to find some info on it...01:32
britthisto: so the alternative install does not need to download packages from apt? im pretty sure it has to connect to download the apt packages to complete the install....01:32
fabio333and get rid of the .firefox folder01:32
sam555eremite: are the restricted packages located under the synaptic package manager?01:32
bloodrockdeserteagle, i checked backward and you said you copied /dev /mnt /media /proc and a couple others01:32
deserteaglegregory57, yeah, that: try it in safe mode01:33
decomp505Hi all - anyone know why I can't get nicotine+ to connect01:33
watatemLosha, thanks a lot =)01:33
halgaveen: that's ok   thanks for the answer.  That file does not exist, but rc.local does01:33
F0rkBombdmdevotee, did you get that? :)01:33
deserteaglebloodrock, actually, it said i copied all -except- those01:33
eremitesam555: yes, but it may be easier for her to search in APPLICATIONS > UBUNTU SOFTWARE CENTER01:33
hipitihopI have a bluetooth keyboard/mouse which pair via 'sudo hidd --search' but constantly timeout and need to run hidd --search again, very frustrating, any suggestions ?01:33
gregory57fabio....which? All I have is adblocker.01:33
deserteaglebloodrock, all except /boot (which was empty either way since it's a different partition) /tmp /mnt /dev /proc and /media01:33
greezmunkeyhal: Did you get an answer yet?01:33
dmdevoteeForkBomb, putted gnome-terminal -x /home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh into the command box, saved, then clicked the launcher, nothing occurs01:33
gregory57deserteagle, good idea.01:34
dmdevoteeonly opens a terminal , and it closes in a half second01:34
SpudDoggwhassup all01:34
F0rkBombdmdevotee, are you printing stuff to a terminal window? or just executing a command?01:34
bloodrockdeserteagle,  oh ok sorry well you musta copied something that had uuid of old in it to the new is what i think happened01:34
eremitedmdevotee: is the .sh file enabled to execute as a program?01:34
Loshadmdevotee: does /home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh run by hand from the terminal?01:34
F0rkBombLosha, he needs to read -p it to stop it closing :)01:35
halgreezmunkey: kind of,   do you think it should be in rc.local or /etc/init/rc-sysinit.conf ?01:35
dmdevoteethir question, yes01:35
Loshabloodrock: if it helps, only grub and /etc/fstab use uuids normally...01:35
dmdevoteesecond question yes, it haves all permissions01:35
F0rkBombdmdevotee, at the end of your shell script, add "read -p "Press any key to continue..."01:35
F0rkBombdmdevotee, without the quotes01:35
gregory57deserteagle, I've also noticed in top that java is running all the time. Is this normal?01:35
greezmunkeyhal: Are you dealing with a laptop?01:35
deserteaglegregory57, not to my knowledge01:36
F0rkBombdmdevotee, so like this: read -p "Press any key to continue..."01:36
* SpudDogg is trying to figure out something clever to type into his terminal...01:36
halgreezmunkey: no01:36
deserteaglegregory57, but I could be mistaken01:36
Loshadmdevotee: if F0rkBomb's suggestion doesn't work, I'd try /bin/sh -c /home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh as the launch command next..01:36
[[thufir]]how do disable don't zap, not in gnome.  cannot find ~.xinitrc01:36
gregory57huh......01:36
bloodrockLosha, if so then he copied his old etc folder over his new one01:36
F0rkBombLosha, it works cause thats what i use01:36
Loshabloodrock: I've done worse...01:36
deserteagle[[thufir]], it's now an issue with gconf-editor iirc01:36
F0rkBombLosha,  the problem is his script is executing and the terminal closes without prompting01:36
histobritt: correct you don't need to download anything just configure network later01:37
LoshaF0rkBomb: what does his script do, anyway?01:37
histobritt: the alternate intall should have all the necessary packages on the cjd.01:37
Losha!dontzap01:37
ubottuTo re-enable the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace combination that restarts your X server see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/DontZap01:37
F0rkBombLosha, *shrug* he just wants to open a script from a launcher01:37
bloodrockdeserteagle, here an idea get to your grub folder get the uuid form the grub.cfg file01:37
sam555eremite: thanks for the help, but I'm going with win2k.  I don't want to have to continually support her and it's just easier.  I myself have ubuntu and it's fine for me to find help, but for others....they're on their own.01:37
brutushttp://myutc.org/index.htm01:37
[[thufir]]that link from ubotto gives bad info, that's what I'm saying,  it says to edit .xinitrc01:38
LoshaF0rkBomb: depending on what it does, he might not even want/need an xterm. I thought  he was just trying to get the script to run when he clicks on it...01:38
bloodrockdeserteagle,  ah no drop it that won't work since you overwrote the etc folder01:38
jerry_tHello  , trouble with  9.10   It  goes to  B&WS  and  frezze  ., any one else  have  this   ?01:38

Losha[[thufir]]: the layout options thing didn't work?01:38
myrldo you know how to control a windows vista computer from ubuntu?01:38
deserteaglebloodrock, /etc? what about it?01:38
deserteaglemyrl, VNC01:39
eremitesam555: it takes about 30 seconds to install that package and then everything should work fine.  There should be NO reasons somone cant figure out how to use Ubuntu if they use Windows, especially when they have no skills in computers (which means no need for the fine art of terminal-fu).  Your solution will only cause problems, Win2k is a trap for viruses.  Dont forget she will need to installa  bunch of codecs in Windows too.01:39
myrlitried it01:39
dmdevoteeboth solutions didn't work01:39
Loshamyrl: you can install a vnc server on windows and then use a vnc client on Ubuntu...01:39
myrlok01:39
myrlthanks01:39
Loshadmdevotee: what does your script do?01:39
deserteaglemyrl, IIRC, there's also a tool to connect to Window's own "Remote Desktop" protocol from ubuntu01:39
myrlwhat if I don't have access to the vista computer?01:40
dmdevoteethis is the script: http://pastebin.com/hmifCxMv01:40
bloodrockdeserteagle,  you copied your old etc folder over your new one01:40
deserteaglemyrl, -.- then you're in the wrong channel01:40
myrlok01:40
nikinI encountered a strange thing today... that my old mobilevideo converting script fails to run on Karmic becouse of the removal of libfaac support from libavcodec. Is there a reson why the ubuntu developers have thrown out the support?01:40
Loshadeserteagle: there *is* an rdesktop command. Dunno if it works for vista...01:40
deserteaglebloodrock, yes, how would that screw it up?01:40
deserteaglemyrl, i would suggest something like neworder.box.sk for those questions :p01:40
myrlif im on the wrong channel, then which is the right one?01:41
greezmunkeyhal: This looks pretty simple, I haven't tried it though: http://en.kioskea.net/faq/3348-ubuntu-executing-a-script-at-startup-and-shutdown01:41
ZykoticK9nikin, it wasn't ubuntu - they are trying to sort the issue out with upstream ffmpeg - who removed AAC audio due to licence issues01:41
dmdevoteein fact, it's not my script, it's a downloaded script to run DJL01:41
Loshanikin: I wonder if it's another of those licensing things. Check out www.medibuntu.org01:41
deserteaglemyrl, goto www.neworder.box.sk and look for their IRC channel01:41
F0rkBombI think dmdevotee is sleeping, Losha :P01:41
ZykoticK9nikin, see bug for details https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/faac/+bug/37490001:42

F0rkBomboh there you are! :D01:42
myrlok01:42
nikinZykoticK9: i see, then i have to come up with an other way to encode videos for my mobile :S First AMR and now this... unbelieveable.01:42
halgreezmunkey: yeah,  I suppose I could do it like that, but there is no need for a Kill script, so I feel there is a more simple solution01:42
ZykoticK9nikin, check out handbrake01:42
halgreezmunkey: I think rc.local is the easiest way01:42
F0rkBombdmdevotee, your script compiles a python file or something?01:43
bloodrockdeserteagle,  wouldn't fstab which is how drive is mounted be pointing to old drive01:43
myrlso many spammers here....01:43
dmdevoteeyes i think so01:43
F0rkBombmyrl, so many questions that need answering :)01:43
myrllol01:43
Loshadmdevotee: looks like your script requires *arguments* to be passed in e.g. a directory?01:43
greezmunkeyhal: The "script at shutdown" part is optional I think!01:43

F0rkBombdmdevotee, are you dragging a folder to the launcher by any chance?01:43

F0rkBombtiki, are you adventurous?01:54
dmdevoteeforkbomb: you changed anything ?01:55
voyager640Losha- someone said it killed their system completely.  So I'm a little nervous.  I tried apt-get install gnome and it said it depends ont hings that are "not going to be installed"01:55

dmdevoteethis is written into "command" box of launchr01:57

booksbuggyFeasibilityStudy, most likely something happened before and broke a package01:58
tikiLosha: isn't it end of april?01:58
F0rkBombdmdevotee, go into properties of the script and see if "Allow executing file as program" is checked01:58
booksbuggyFeasibilityStudy, i am saying use the synaptic package manager to check for broken packages01:58

booksbuggyFeasibilityStudy, okay other than apt does Kubuntu have any other kind of package manager?02:10

dmdevoteeif i type sudo sh /home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh on terminal it works, but i would want a launcher...02:30
IdleOneeremite: not everybody has strong google fu. pointing that out to them is not helpful.02:30
kpomeroydmdevotee: I was wrong, it need to be " /home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh", it needs the " ".02:30
dmdevoteeanda if course, i want to learn02:31
histodmdevotee: can you launch it without sudo02:31
eremiteIdleOne: pointing out that they should use Google is soemthing positive.  Teaches them to teach themselves, and saves us hassle.  Saves everyone a headache in teh end.02:31

eggonleaHi guys, we could search a Ubuntu package by many methods, like dpkg -S or visit packages.ubuntu.com. But how to find a manpage? E.g. by default I cannot "man XvShmPutImage". How to find and install the correct manpage under Ubuntu? I google'ed this but failed to find an answer. Thanks!02:32
histodsnyders: you would need to find where the evenlog is stored on the drive and read it that way02:32
diego-chIdleOne: like this http://www.mail-archive.com/ubuntu-devel-discuss@lists.ubuntu.com/msg09364.html02:32

band-aiddoes anyone know where nautilus shares the samba configurations that are created when you use the GUI to share a folder?02:32
dsnydershisto, I don't think that they're text files.02:32
eremiteIdleOne: I didnt break any rules.  I asked if they googled it first.  That is not the same as teklling someone to goole it.  \02:32
histoeggonlea: apropos something02:32
Loshaeremite: I google it for them. In the long run, it saves time...02:33
IdleOneeremite: "Your honor I didn't shoot  him in the head. I just said I was going to!" still go to jail02:33
histodsnyders: it may be.  Windows saves a lot of stuff in plain text and xml in wierd directorys.  If its in the registry or something i'm sure there are tools02:33
histodsnyders: either way not really a ubuntu question.02:33
eggonleahisto: thanks, but "apropos XvShmPutImage" returns nothing.02:34
IdleOnediego-ch: that is above my head. report a bug I guess02:34
eremiteIdleOne: hardly comparable.  Losha: I did google it for him.  Irrelavant.02:34
LoshaIdleOne: on different charges though...02:34
dmdevoteezykotick9: thanks, but with gksudo "/home/dmdevotee/djl/djl.sh" does not launch, but it ask for root pass02:34
diego-chIdleOne: i'll see what i can do...02:34
tp2General question here if anyone has any quick advice.  Recently install Ubuntu Server 9.10 on vmware ESXi server and it seems rather slow compared to other unix/linux based guest VMs.  For example, any time I login it takes about an extra 10 seconds or so and then gives me about 20 lines of text about with system info and stats etc.  everything seems to work as it should out of the box install (Lamp server etc) but it just seems 'slow'.02:34
dsnydershisto, well, is there a general linux channel where I could ask?02:35
histoeggonlea: what are you trying to do exactly? your original question was confusing02:35
ZykoticK9dsnyders, ##linux02:35
Loshaeremite: I used to think I could train them, but they outnumber us, so....02:35
histodsnyders: you can search synaptic also02:35
WhiteDawntp2: there are some packages for hypervisors in synaptic, you can try some of those, i dont really ahve any experience in that subject though02:35
greezmunkeyLosha!02:35
greezmunkeyhehe02:35
eggonleahisto: I just want to know how to install the CORRECT manpage if I only knows the function name.02:36
tp2whitedawn - synaptic?  if it would be easier to just google let me know :)02:36
kpomeroyI am trying to install a .deb but it says a software management tool is running but i don't have synaptic, the update manager or the terminal open. Are there any other tools that could be causing the problem?02:36
eggonleaJust like we could dpkg -S a file_we_look_for.02:37
histodsnyders: http://ask.metafilter.com/15838/Converting-Windows-Event-Viewer-log-files-on-a-nix-platform02:37
WhiteDawntp2: new to ubuntu? synaptic is the package manager, its under system/administration/synaptic on the top bar02:37
histoeggonlea: how did you install the package?02:37
ZykoticK9kpomeroy, have you tried logging out and back in?02:37
kpomeroyYeah I tried that once, I could try it again i guess02:37
WhiteDawntp2: you can also launch it through terminal with "gksudo synaptic" although it is a GUI program so make sure you arent cli only02:38
eggonleahisto: 1) we could "dpkg -S" to find a package name by a filename; 2) how to find a manpage package name by a function name?02:38
ZykoticK9kpomeroy, logout/login or rebooting is probably the safest option -- but i think you could manually remove the lock as a last resort02:39
histoeggonlea: manpages don't have package names they come with the package02:39
tp2whitedawn - very new to ubuntu. all my *nix experience is Sun Solaris/HP-UX/AS400.  Very new to Linux in general.  The way you describe 'under sys/adm/syn top bar' it sounds very gui like?  my install of server sits at command prompt after login etc. did i miss an install option to get the synaptic tool?02:39
histoeggonlea: you can search the installed man pages with man -k sometext02:39
kpomeroyOk I will restart the computer but if it doesn't work what is the override?02:39
ZykoticK9tp2, server does not have a GUI, text only02:40
WhiteDawntp2: ah yeah it is a gui program, you can use apt-get for a cli, make sure you run it as root. Synaptic is just a nice and easy way to search through avalible packages02:40
rocketeerbkwa file is 777 and I'm a member of the group that has ownership of file. I can't use chmod w/o sudo "operation not permitted" are user owners the only ones able to use chmod?02:41
tp2whitedawn - ok thx.  i think i will do some google searching on ubuntu and some vm/hypervisor pkgs to speed things up on vmware.  i tried a vmware tools install with my vmware guest mgr but it doesn't seem to work or install anything.02:41
booksbuggywell then either firefox already killed the toolbar or else there was a bug again.......02:41
Joker_-_tp2: "apt-get install [PackageName1] [PackageName2]..." (to install a package) "apt-cache search [something]" = search for a package02:41
eggonleahisto: the problem is that the manpage package is not installed yet, so man -k or apropos cannot help.02:41
ZykoticK9rocketeerbkw, user owner or root02:41
IdleOnekpomeroy: sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock02:41
histotp2: apt-cache search hypervisor   will list packages that match that.02:42

lotushey, I'm having issues staying connected / authenticating with a PEAP mschapV2 WPA Enterprise based network at my university.  Does any one have experience with these types of issues?02:42
tp2joker_-_ - thx.  does the search do wildcarding?  can i do a "apt-cache search vmware"?  or would it be "apt-cache search *vm*"?02:42
histoeggonlea: the manpage for a certain app isn't there right?02:42
Joker_-_tp2: it is "wildcards" by default02:42
tp2joker_-_ ok thx.02:42
histoeggonlea: once again how did you install the app?02:42
Joker_-_tp2: apt-cache search vmware should work02:42
WhiteDawnJoker_-_: thanks, did not know that command etheir02:42
Joker_-_tp2: I tend to use "| grep something"02:43
histoeggonlea: its quite possible it didn't come with documentation02:43

eggonleahisto: Sorry, I've thought I've express myself clearly. I have a function name (API like XvShmPutImage). I want to get the right manpage installed, by any way.02:45
devz0rMy computer lost power while installing a package, and now I am having issues doing anything with apt-get/aptitude/synaptic/etc. regarding configuration errors. apt-get -f install doesn't fix it, dpkg --configure -a doesn't fix it.02:45
ZykoticK9WhiteDawn, but you had a "go to" so yours was better :)02:45
tp2joker_-_  i found a few pkgs i'd like more info about from the search on vmware.  is there a way to get more details than the single line description that comes back or is it best to just google the pkg name?02:45
booksbuggydevz0r, you using ubuntu or kubuntu?02:46
devz0rubuntu02:46
WhiteDawnZykoticK9: why thank you good sir, but we cannot forget your wonderfull advice, may it live forever02:46
eggonleahisto: any method to get the manpage filename or package name so that I could apt-get install <the right package> and then I could man <the function>.02:46
booksbuggyokay synaptics and look for the broken packages unless you are using beta system02:46
Guest75815but i want create submenu  in my  application02:46
devz0ri am using lucid beta02:46
booksbuggyeh then i think this is the wrong place to ask02:47
Joker_-_tp2: you can try apt-cache show02:47
devz0rwell i think this has happened before in stable versions02:47
devz0ri don't remember how i fixed it02:47
Joker_-_apt-cache --help for all the commands, as any other unix/linux command02:47
kpomeroyok using "sudo rm /var/cache/apt/archives/lock" didn't seem to work and neither did restarting the computer02:47
booksbuggydefz0r, normally i would just go into synaptics and just look for broken packages02:47
Joker_-_tp2: I tend to know what I'm looking for, but I think I would use google to find more info, if available.02:48
histoeggonlea: try apt-cache search someterm02:48
hellyeahhey02:48
histoeggonlea: then you can find the package you are looking for and install it.02:48
hellyeahwassup02:48
WhiteDawntp2: there is also package search on ubuntu's website, you can google for that02:49
tp2joker_-_ 10-4. did that.. first links came up were pages at http://packages.ubuntu.com/etc...02:49
=== conroy12334 is now known as tydizzle
eggonleahisto: e.g. I could apt-get install manpages manpages-dev, etc. to install some basic man pages. But I don't know the "right package name" which contains the "right manpage" for an API.02:49
Joker_-_tp2: apt-cache show works well if you don'T have any GUI available02:49
Joker_-_tp2: there's also elinks, if you are the adventurous type :)02:49
tp2whitedawn - yup thats where i am now.  thanks for the virtualization tip btw.  looks like "open-vm-tools" is a pkg that will greatly enhance ubuntu guest os on a vmware esx host.02:50
Guest75815?how to  <WhiteDawn>  <ZykoticKg02:50
Guest75815can you tell me02:50
eggonleahisto: I understand what you mean. but the problem is we lack a way to find the package name from a function name.02:50
Loshaeggonlea: actually, I don't know of a good solution to your issue. You could try apt-cache search man | egrep -i manpage but if the developers forgot to include man pages in the -dev package, you might be sunk. I would google for the API in that case, and maybe look in the include files...02:50
Joker_-_Engaging shutdown procedure. Good night.02:50
trismeggonlea: you might try http://manpages.ubuntu.com/ it found that function in http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/lucid/en/man3/XvShmPutImage.3.html (although it appears to only be in the lucid package, it isn't in karmic anyway)02:50
tp2joker_-_  "elinks" for the adventurous type? i'm lol-ing.. not even sure why yet!02:50

ZykoticK9Guest75815, in Main Menu - highlight Office on the left side, then click the New Menu button on the right02:51

darkk^lotus, the system does not boot properly after kernel update (init=/bin/bash is not my dream) :-)04:50
bonez2046sound? what would cause sound to stop working?04:50
Izinucsubutom2: I know you ment that you didn't do a release upgrade.. but a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade does not take you to the next release .. it only upgrades packages with your current version.. ie 9.10 or whatever.04:50
lotusdarkk^: doesn't boot properly or doesn't boot at all?  Can you get your disk to decrypt?04:50
darkk^yes, it decrypts, init=/bin/bash works.04:51
oberdadaSwimmingRat: thanks anyways. I was hoping someone among the other 1321 users knew something about that04:51

shazbotmcnastyWhy do all the computer store websites suck?04:52
Izinucsshazbotmcnasty: try tigerdirect.com..04:52

lotusI just like their policies04:52
JimmyNeutronnewegg and zipzoomfly are pretty good to me04:52
shazbotmcnastyIzinucs, tigerdirect is not very good04:52
lotusdarkk^: let me check my boot stuffs04:52
shazbotmcnastytheir prices are like...mac prices04:53
oberdadalzinucs - the port i'm using is on the motherboard. The usb card reader is one of those that fits into the 3.5 floppy slot on the chassis04:53
shazbotmcnastyfor cpus that is..04:53
darkk^lotus, according to /var/log/apt/... my kernel was upgraded from 2.6.31.14.27 to 2.6.31.20.3304:53
Loshabonez2046: you could try sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart ....04:53
ubutom2oberdada, is it also ubuntu on the otherpc?samefilesystem?04:53
Izinucsoberdada: ah.. that might be the issue.. I remember something from a while ago (1 year +) where some of those had issues... no idea why though.04:53
oberdadaubutom2: mini-8.04 desktop:8.1004:53
lotusdarkk^: can you select your old kernel from the boot menu?04:54
darkk^lotus, no, it's not available04:54

lotusdarkk^: I'm guessing you're running grub2 right?04:54
XubuntuI tried sudo update-grub2 but it didn't work04:54
Loshashazbotmcnasty: if you're bargainhunting, slickdeals is a good resource....04:54
darkk^lotus, right.04:54
oberdadalzinucs- you're saying, the usb card reader is hopeless?04:54
lotusdarkk^: did you try sudo update-grub ?04:55
lotusdarkk^: you shouldn't have to, imho.04:55
lotusdarkk^: but it couldn't hurt04:55
darkk^lotus, update-grub or update-grub2 ?04:55

hellyeahwhat can i do04:58
mrowdyCan I ask Ubuntu / Apache2 questions here? I'm new with both and need help seeing the perfectly obvious04:58

frodwithHi folks.  I've just installed a wireless card (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000UOC3QK/ref=oss_product).  It's working for the most point, but it has a bit of a quirk.  At seemingly random intervals, the machine will stop accepting traffic from other machines on the network.  If I physically log into the machine and ping one of the other machines, suddenly it starts working again for a while.04:58
darkk^by the way, does anyone have an idea why SysRQ-B does not reboot my PC?04:58
oberdadaubutom2: yes. i've tried chmoding it- it wont let me04:58
bonez2046Losha: send me a bill, my new friend.. that fixed it.. I'll tuck that away!!!!04:58
ubutom2oberdada, in the text i readit randomly was mountedroor rw, then it was plugged in as another user and it worked04:58
Loshabonez2046: world:0 Losha:104:59
hellyeahpls someone help me04:59
mrowdylotus - I'm sure it must be obvious and I'm looking too hard!04:59
darkk^and echo b > /proc/sysrq-trigger works fine =)04:59
mrowdyLosha - thanks, I'm having problems with SSI at the moment04:59
Blue11it just gives me a command prompt but it never creates the home directory on sdb204:59
lotusfrodwith: update kernel (if you havent).  I have similar problems with WPA Enterprise networks04:59
mrowdyThe shtml file loads but the server-parsed date doesn't show04:59
bonez2046:)04:59
lotushellyeah: You're sure you're not booting off a CD into a Live environment?04:59
mrowdyI've restarted apache as root, so that shouldn't be the issue - right?04:59
oberdadaubutom2 - i tried mkfs'ing it. it didnt work (cannot format a mounted drive, cannot find the device if its not mounted)04:59
darkk^lotus, oops, kernel panic, unable to mount root fs ;-)05:00
teckymorning :X05:00
hellyeahi am booting live cd05:00
frodwithlotus: what did you upgrade to that fixed it?05:00
lotusmrowdy: I don't know if you're supposed to start apache as root.  I thought it ran as it's own user?05:00
hellyeahnot i am in ubuntu live cd lotus05:00
hellyeahnow*05:00
oberdadaubutom2: what d'you mean mounted roor rw?05:00
LoshaBlue11: just typing mkdir /home will create a directory, but not necessarily on a particular device. You have to mount the device first e.g. sudo mount /dev/sdb2 /home05:00
daskreechIzinucs: Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude05:00
lotusfrodwith: I haven't "fixed" yet.  I changed from network-manager to wicd and will find out tomorrow it it helps at all05:00
lotusmrowdy: I could be wrong05:00
Izinucsdaskreech: yeaaaaaaa?  working?05:01
frodwithlotus: Ah.  I'm using wicd right now, actually.05:01
mrowdylotus - I originally did it that way, but couldn't do the password authentication until I started as root05:01
lotusdarkk^: ahh!05:01
mrowdyso I assumed that Ubuntu 8.04 has some security settings I don't know about05:01
daskreechIzinucs: My res is so high that all my fonts look like size 405:01
daskreechIt's like 1920 or something05:01

lotusmrowdy: password authentication on... what?05:01
daskreechnow I can work on getting me some glasses!05:01
hellyeahi need help05:01
Izinucsdaskreech: lol! .. you're there! ..05:01
ubutom2oberdada, in the example the user was able to write to the card with sudo nautilus05:01
mrowdyon an html page05:01
lotusfrodwith: :D then try networkmanager ;)05:01
lotusmrowdy: probably a directory permissions problem05:02
Izinucsdaskreech: I've done my good deed for the day.. now I can sleep :)05:02
frodwithlotus: rofl, might give that a shot.05:02
daskreechIzinucs: I don't beleive it was the horizontal sync the whole time. What on earth made it break05:02
lotusmrowdy: don't run your server as root.  IT's a really bad idea :)05:02
oberdadaubutom2: oh i see. i wasnt able to do that05:02
ubutom2oberdada, and he tried it with another normal user account and then the sd-card worked again, odd05:02
daskreechIzinucs: Sleep till Saturday05:02
mrowdyI'll restart it then, and what permissions do I need on a directory in which the shtml file resides?05:02
Izinucsdaskreech: wish I could.. no idea what broke it.. but I'd make a copy of that xorg and save it in a safe place..05:02
daskreechIzinucs: I did already05:03
Izinucs:)05:03
Izinucsdaskreech: enjoy!  I gotta run/sleep/dream05:03
daskreechNice05:03
daskreechnight05:03
lotusmrowdy: also, try asking in #httpd they'll be able to answer more specific apache problems.  But namei -l "file_with_password_stuffs" might be useful05:04

hellyeahi try to configure grub05:04
oberdadathe odd thing is, an usb stick mounts ok on the multiformat reader, but an SD card wont: it mounts as read-only05:04
nin-jafrustrating X_X05:04
lotusmrowdy: oh gosh, it's a good thing to know but I don't know it.  #web will know the permissions.  I think its 611 on directoris and 644 on files but I could be wrong.05:04
darkk^lotus, ok, now I have old kernel and new kernel, old one hangs some boot script and new one does not have initrd (that's why it can't mount root)05:04
darkk^lotus, stay tuned :-)05:04
lotusdarkk^: I wish I could be more helpful.  I'm about ready to go to bed, though.  IT's 5:00 GMT!05:05
mrowdylotus - I'll set 611 on the directory and check with #httpd05:06
mrowdythankd05:06
mrowdyer05:06
mrowdythanks05:06
FloodBot3mrowdy: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.05:06
lotusmrowdy: erg careful05:06
lotusmrowdy: 611 on EVERY directory leading upto the file is necessary for access to the file05:06
lotusmrowdy: If it is, indeed, 611 that directories need05:06
lotusmrowdy: that's why namei -l <path_to_file> is useful05:06

morticiabstrakt, i would think dpkg-reconfigure gdm would do the trick05:11
ubutom2oberdada, did you try to connect the reader to the mini? if it doesn't work there either, it could be a driver bug, or sth like that, has it ever worked read/writable before with ubuntu?05:11

whateversamHello everyone.  I've been wondering if it is possible to run the x.server for a single application from the cmd shell.  I'm wondering this because I would like to know if it's possible to harness all of the hardware on a computer for a single program at once.05:12
whateversamMainly this would be for virtual PCs and/or gaming.05:12
morticistupid laptop, upgraded 10.04 and now it hardlocks when it gets to GDM and i start to type, if i don't type its fine, if im in recovery its fine with typeing, the moment i continue the reboot it fails05:12
whateversamAny ideas on if this would be possible?05:13
oberdadaubutum2: i've not tried to connect it to the mini. the reader is one of those that fits into the 3.5 floppy space on a desktop computer05:13

whateversambazhang, I'm still learning about linux, but from what I've seen one can control the x server after it is running.  (alt+ctrl+f1, and reboot x with options enabled.)  I'm working on the theory that it may be possible to run x only for your game.  While you game the rest of the programs can sit without x support.05:20

dsnydersdisappearedng, I use mplayer for everything.05:30
jasonop8I don't need any support. not now at least.05:30
lappieAshok are you connected to the right server that hosts the java channels? i think ure wanting freenode, but u can get to this channel from the ubuntu server or freenode05:31
bazhangjasonop8, okay, general chat in #ubuntu-offtopic , please05:31
nin-jato do a manual installation of ubuntu, what partitions do I need, and what sizes are absolutely necessary?05:31
hmwI cant apt-get install from a live cd, I am connected to via ssh. How can I make it install x11vnc server?05:31
bazhangnin-ja, do you wish a separate home partition?05:31
maginotHi. Can someone tell me what rules or application is responsable for automonting drives like pen-drives, usb disks, etc ? (maybe udev?)05:31
bazhangnin-ja, /  swap /boot at least05:32
jasonop8just out of curiousity, but are you an admin or something?05:32
nin-jabazhang: would a home partition make it run faster?05:32
Madpilotlappie, the 'ubuntu servers' just forward straight to Freenode, far as I know05:32
nin-jabazhang: and how large must the swap be?05:32
jasonop8and actually, I do have a question, but there's no point in asking in the windows room, because they don't know anything..05:33
bazhangnin-ja, home partition is useful when things go awry or you wish to protect and fresh install but keep all your stuff05:33
bazhangjasonop8, then /join #ubuntu-offtopic05:33
bazhangnin-ja, is this a laptop05:33
jasonop8okay..so are you an admin?05:33
nin-jabazhang i'll have a general partition in fat 32 for that XD;05:33
nin-jabazhang: yes its a laptop D=05:33
bazhangnin-ja, fat32 for what05:34
nin-jabazhang: a kind of backup partition that both windows and linux can use05:34
bazhangnin-ja, use ntfs for sharing with other OS05:34
jasonop8dick05:34
* maginot thinks if auto-mounting devices is related to hal-storage-mount... 05:34
bazhangnin-ja, do you wish to hibernate?05:34
nin-jabazhang: ya XD;05:34
bazhangnin-ja, how much ram05:35
nin-jabazhang: 2Gb05:35
bazhangnin-ja, greater or equal to ram iirc best to be safe and give it 3GB05:36

Madpilotfiyawerx, I think you just won some sort of award for most random thing ever posted here...05:37
nin-jabazhang: unfortunately it would be quite a task to upgrade the ram more.  And its a bit old, so i'm not too interested in upgrading the laptop =\05:37
maginotlappie, Hmmm let me take a look, just a sec .. .05:37
maginotah05:37
bazhangnin-ja, 3GB for swap, not upgrade the ram05:37
nin-jabazhang: OH XDD;05:37
fiyawerxdsnyders, its for ##crawl, actually05:38
nin-jabazhang: so i just need, 3GB swap, a boot partition which is the root im guessing and thats it?05:38
maginotlappie, actually there is nothing to do with ntfs, well, I'm curious to know how does ubuntu (or maybe some other distro who does the same) automount usb devices when they are plugged, I have build a lfs distribution and still haven't this working on it, so maybe I could use the same ubuntu uses...05:39
lappieoh, thats way beyond me :) sorry05:39
Madpilotnin-ja, /boot is not root. you likely need both05:39
maginotlappie,  okay, thanks anyway =)05:39
bazhangnin-ja, 250mb or so for /boot  3GB for swap   the rest for /   unless you wish a separate home partition05:40
saganbyteHello05:40
lappiemaginot np good luck rofl05:40
dsnydersfiyawerx, I meant assassin as in hired killer, not the game. :-)05:40
nin-jabazhang: alright thanks!05:40
saganbyteWhat is the difference between apt-get install and aptitude install05:40
maginotbazhang,  Hmm 250mb for boot is way enought, I wonder if you will ever use all this space there05:40
nin-jabazhang: anything else i should know while creating the partitions?05:40
bazhangnin-ja, decide if you wish a separate home partition or not05:41

ar0nim lookin to goof around with a flashy desktop etc05:41
nimrod10saganbyte, not much difference there both accomplish the same thing05:42
bazhangar0n, compiz has more flashy features05:42
nimrod10saganbyte, stick to using aptitude in my opinion , more easy to  use05:42
nin-jabazhang: sure i mind as well seperate a home partition as well05:42
maginotar0n, they are different05:42
saganbytenimrod10, Okay.. thanks05:43
maginotar0n, compiz gives you more eyecand05:43

smick2Is there a way to turn off and turn back on the graphical environment like to save memory and let your Desktop run as a server.  Then you can SSH back in and call up the desktop GUI when you want to?05:44
soreauar0n: What kind of graphics card do you have?05:44
nin-jabazhang: oh what should the boot file format be?05:44
maginotftab, /etc/profile have you looked there? or on ~/.bashrc ?05:44
nimrod10!aptitude | nimrod1005:45
ubottunimrod10, please see my private message05:45
FloodBot3!netsplit05:45
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit05:45
ftabmaginot, that file is empty05:45
maginotftab, which one?05:45
ftab~/.bashrc05:46
maginotftab, thats your problem..05:46
maginotftab, so its using the default on /etc/profile05:46
nin-jabazhang: should i put the /boot partition before the swap? or does that really matter?05:46
ftabmaginot, then what I need to do to force bash to remember the folder path05:47
ftab?05:47
maginotftab, you must have something like this on /etc/profile http://maginot.pastebin.com/jA5JvYy505:47
maginotftab, no. you profile must look like the one I pointed you05:47
nin-jaum... i was doing a manual partition for ubuntu, and I was wondering if the SWAP partition should come before or after the /boot partition05:48
ftabok05:48
nin-jaor if it really mattered05:48
git__hey, the update fixed my sound05:48
git__yay!05:48
ar0nit doesnt matter nin-ja05:48
git__the update didn't fix resume/suspend though05:48
ar0ni did / swap home tho05:48
smick2does init3 disable the gui?05:48
nin-jaar0n: cool good to know05:48
smick2and will init3 gain me memory?05:49
maginotftab, if you can't edit /etc/profile cut and past that inside a new file called .bashrc on you home folder. But take care to not overwrite something, do it if you ~/.bashrc is inexistent or empty05:49
nin-jaar0n: what formats did you use for home and root?05:49
nin-jaar0n: i was just going to use ext4, i dont really know the difference between ext4 and the other exts tho05:50

isolat3dsh33padrian2mil10, I'm not sure how to do that. So you don't liek the funkeh xsplash huh. :/05:55
maginotadrian2mil10, do you use framebuffer?05:56
adrian2mil10<isolat3dsh33p> i don't wanna splash , i kick off the splash , i want see the kernel load messages05:56
KindOneAshok: please ask your question again, since everyone is back.05:56
maginotadrian2mil10, you have to open /etc/inittab05:56
maginotadrian2mil10, after each getty line you put -I `setterm -clear all -foreground green -bold -store`05:57
maginotchange green and bold for whatever you want05:57
adrian2mil10magintot > i have in cmdline the order vga=0x31705:57
isolat3dsh33padrian2mil10, maybe you could check files in /boot :/05:58
maginotadrian2mil10, did you get what I told you? Or its that way or you can recompile your kernel. Its up to you ;)05:58
maginotisolat3dsh33p, no.05:58
isolat3dsh33pmaginot, so no config file huh. :/05:58
maginotisolat3dsh33p, read above. You can edit /etc/inittab or recompile the kernel with option WS_KERNEL_FG=WSCOL_BLACK05:58
adrian2mil10<maginot> i'm using stock ubuntu kernel , only want change the  font color and no splash05:59

adrian2mil10<maginot> yes thanks , you say change initab06:00
maginotadrian2mil10, change green for the color you want and took off -bold if you want. that is it.06:00
nomad77adrian2mil10: could try splash=silent verbose on the kernel root=/dev/foo line in grub.for kernel messages while booting06:00
maginotadrian2mil10, and don't get confused, is inittab, with double "t"06:01
adrian2mil10<nomad77> maybe for try the first time it's a good idea06:01
adrian2mil10<maginot> yes , inittab06:01
maginotof course, thats for changing the color, to have no boot splash is like nomad77 told.06:02
adrian2mil10<maginot>i remenber one time i probing federo livecd i like the startup boot screen process showing the load with font color06:03
lappiesince maginot brought up the question about mounting devices n such, i was wondering, is there a way to not show mounded devices on the desktop?06:03
adrian2mil10<maginot>i remenber one time i probing fedora livecd i like the startup boot screen process showing the load with font color06:03

adrian2mil10<maginot>i don't  using menu.lst anymore , i'm using burg06:04
maginotadrian2mil10, sorry, I'm getting confused of what you're trying to achieve. If the idea is to take of the image and keep the text, so you have all information, but changing the boot splash I can't help you. And sorry, don't know burg.06:05
maginotlappie, yep there is, but first I have to know how to make they appear there to help you... lol06:05
adrian2mil10<maginot>no , i quit the usplash  , i want to see the kernel load messages with font in color not withe06:06
maginotlappie, I think I'm almost there, just tweaking ubuntu around trying to get it...06:06
lappiemaginot i used the program i linked 2 u earlier to automatically mount my ntfs partition so i can access my public folder from windows :)06:06
maginotadrian2mil10, so you have all you need, take the boot splash like nomad77 said (or whetever burg does) and use the /etc/inittab for the colors06:06
lappiemaginot act i think i just found my answer , how-to-geek has a page on it :)06:06

rocket16Hello all, is there a GNOME version of KDE applications like KPlot and KStars?06:44
timboyrocket16, no06:44
timboytimboy, just use those06:44
rocket16timboy: Sorry to hear that. They run well, but with less speed06:44
timboyrocket16, agreed i'm not a fan of kde...06:45
BluShiftSwimmingRat: I get the feeling it might be Flash. Does this happen with other Flash sites as well>06:45
BluShift?06:45
rocket16timboy: Still, It is nice. Most KDE applications are better, like Kig is better than Dr. Geo06:45
rocket16timboy: But to me, GNOME is better, :)06:45
maginotscribawf, take a look here, after understanding it try and any problem come ask for help again: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/FrameBuffer :)06:45
BluShiftWhat's your favorite text editor?06:46
darolurocket16, you can try stellarium (similar to kstars)06:46
rocket16Mine is Kate06:46
knoppiesBluShift, gedit.06:46
scribawfmaginot:  OK on my way will try most anything at this point, TU06:46
maginotrocket16, you can use kde applications inside gnome, just need kde libs...06:46
BluShiftHeh heh.06:46

rocket16maginot: I am doing it already, but they are a bit slower06:46
SuspectZerohow can i install grub4dos through ubuntu?06:46
darolurocket16, I'm not sure what Kplot does, maybe if you tell me what you do with it I can suggest an alternative in gnome06:47

SwimmingRatknoppies, I did unignore nick and it worked06:49
scribawfmaginot:  startx was the answer for me now need to edit the loader line06:49
rocket16darolu: I tried Lybniz, it is nice. But still,wanted something better, :)06:49
maginotscribawf, you know that using startx isn't recommended right? The better way is with a session manager like gdm, kdm or xdm06:49
zamba'startx' is so the 90s06:50
SwimmingRatBluShift, so far only on that page. It was happening a LOT a week or so ago. I asked in here. did some pastebins. was told it was my CD (which was just sitting there unused) so I removed the disk and it's been fine till today.06:50
scribawfmaginot:  OK so lets see which one I really go with gdm, kdm or xdm?06:50

maginotscribawf, you can use any, but usually for gnome gdm is more common06:51

I've checked where the sesion is stored(/var/php) and confirmed that it's accessable. I check the log, but can't find any phpmyadmin related error on my apache log. I'm installing phpmyadmin with apt-get. However, other webapps still can u06:54
BluShiftar0n: Actually, better to just chmod 998 to be safe.06:54
maginotBluShift, this delay was you searching on google for it?06:54
rocket16darolu: No, it does not. Because there is no Coordinate system,06:54
furunooh, it's a phpMyAdmin error displayed right after I've submitted the phpmyadmin login form06:54
rocket16darolu: GNUPLOT is excelleent, but it is a graph-plotter, not a function-plotter06:55
BluShiftfuruno: Don't use XAMPP. Just install Apache and PHP from scratch. XAMPP tries to make things easier, but ends up making them more difficult.06:55
BluShiftmaginot: Come again?06:55

Tru7hdarolu: Windows is in sda2 for me, I assumed this meant I should set my root to (hd0,2); was I mistaken?07:38
rocket16Shishirdwivedi29: From Lucknow?07:38
HPTwhitei am Madpilot07:38
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: From Lucknow?07:38
MarkProffittmtx_init: I am trying and it doesn't work.  The computer is a brick07:38
shishirdwivedi20no07:38
shishirdwivedi20why rocket16?07:38
HPTwhiteim just saying a starting statement like that isnt too friendly07:38
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: Just a guess though, I am an Indian too07:38
HPTwhitesorry for being so direct07:39
mtx_initMarkProffitt: make sure you are able to boot from a CD, try to press F11 or F12 right away and select CD/DVD drive07:39
daroluTru7h, according to that link, you are correct; although I'm not very sure if sda2 = hd0,2 and not hd0,1 as it used to be; you may want to try changing hd0,2 to hd0,107:39
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: So, what is the problem?07:39
shishirdwivedi20ohh dats great rocket1607:39
shishirdwivedi20ok07:39
Madpilotrocket16, please keep the offtopic chat to a minimum on this channel, OK?07:39
shishirdwivedi20i forgot my user name and password of ubuntu07:39
MarkProffittHPTwhite, I'm not feeling very friendly.  THis piece of shit destroyed my new laptop.07:39
HPTwhitei dont understand it completely myself, but i wouldnt come into a support room for it with a statement like that07:39
rocket16Madpilot: I am just talking to him about his problem,07:39
shishirdwivedi20so how can i access my operationg system07:39
outer_space1reformat your hd lol its not ubuntus fault07:40
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: Access Ubuntu?07:40
Tru7hdarolu: Trying (hd0,1) produces the same error.07:40
shishirdwivedi20yeah07:40
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: Why? Using Login screen isn't enough?07:40
shishirdwivedi20ubuntu give any guest login facility?07:40
mtx_initMarkProffitt: your laptop is fine.07:40
mtx_initI cant get my cam to work with tinychat, but it works fine with chatrt and cheese, any ideas?  I set the flash permissions and I am in the video group07:40
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: Oh! Forgot your Password?07:40
outer_space1how can you figure out IRC if you cant even reinstall windows?07:40
shishirdwivedi20yeah07:40
MadpilotMarkProffitt, "destroyed my new laptop" is pretty vague. Barring smoke, fire & explosion, I'm guessing an install went badly?07:40
Vigoshishirdwivedi20: Here>https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword07:40
shishirdwivedi20ok vigo07:41
daroluTru7h, when you do "sudo update-grub" does it get to the Windows 7 part, or prints the boot error for a Linux entry?07:41
rocket16Shishirdwivedi20: O, I am opening a new dialogue Window, to help you07:41
HPTwhiteMarkProffitt: just a suggestion; if you're coming into a support channel please be more direct with your issue rather than making such a horrible opening remark; won't get many responses like that. but that's just my personal opinion; i don't speak for everyone when i say that07:41
* maginot nothing like a coffee at 4:40am 07:41
Tru7hdarolu: It says "Adding Windows" but after the memtest image thing it says "ls: cannot access /var/lib/os-prober/mount/Boot" and then "boot: No such file or directory"07:42
MarkProffittI can't get it to boot from CD07:43
maginotMarkProffitt, did you changed the bios to be able to boot your cd?07:43
daroluTru7h, oh so it is not loading the os-prober; uhmmm gimme a sec07:43
MadpilotMarkProffitt, have you checked your BIOS settings? Boot order might need to be adjusted.07:43
HPTwhitewhat message do you get mark? what kind of system do you have? do you have your BIOS set to boot from CD?07:43
* maginot 3 equal answer maybe thats the real answer ? ;)07:44
Vigoshishirdwivedi20: There are a few other ways, that one is the basic from Ubuntu , the forums have a few tips on that also, be careful in that area as you are /root and a backup is always suggested.07:44
MarkProffittI don't have any system now07:44
oriHelp. I installed counter strike but it won't run. any tips?07:44
Tru7hdarolu: I've tried running apt-get install os-prober but it's already installed.07:44
HPTwhiteMark: Ubuntu 9.10 will boot from any system bootable by cdrom07:44
maginotMarkProffitt, do you know what BIOS is?07:44
HPTwhitewith the minimum sys requirements of course07:44
MadpilotMarkProffitt, BIOS is not your system. It's the really base level stuff that pops up when you first turn the machine on07:45
MarkProffittWhen it boot I get a message to choose Window or Ubuntu,  If I choose Ubunut it crashes.  If I chose Windows the retore comes up and then fails.07:45
MadpilotBIOS doesn't care if there's an OS or not07:45
daroluTru7h, yes, update-grub is supposed to load/run the /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober but seems like it's not doing it07:45
maginotMarkProffitt, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS07:45
MarkProffittTher is no way to get to the BIOS07:45
Tru7hdarolu: Do you know what else I could try?07:45
outer_space1markproffitt boot from your windows cd07:45
maginotMarkProffitt, did you readed what I pointed you ?07:46
MarkProffittEvery key I press on statrt up doesn't work07:46
MarkProffittIt won't boot07:46
daroluTru7h, try "sudo os-prober" to see if it does find your Windows 707:46
maginotMarkProffitt, again, read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS07:46
Tru7hdarolu: "sudo os-prober" returns "ls: cannot access /var/lib/os-prober/mount/Boot" and "boot: no such file or directory".07:47
maginotMarkProffitt, this will help too I think: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/bootorderchange.htm07:47
MarkProffittmaginot I know what BIOS is.  There is no way to get this computer to boot07:47
VigoMarkProffit: Hold Delete key, but look at Computer Hope .com for some very helpful data on that, could be a different key. or key set.07:47
MadpilotMarkProffitt, if you're getting to GRUB's choose-your-OS screen, it is booting past BIOS, at least07:47
maginotMarkProffitt, If you know what a bios is you wouldn't making some questions you did. Change in the bios the boot order to the CD.07:48
Madpilotmust go, stuff to do before sleep. Later, all.07:48
MarkProffittThere is no way to get to the BIOS,  and it can't get crashing no matter which OS I choose07:48
maginotMarkProffitt, but why are you trying to boot the CD, your problem isn't with your password?07:48
MarkProffittI can't get this to boot to anything now07:49
maginotMarkProffitt, I gave up, I'm talking to a door. =/07:49
MarkProffittnot from HD,  it won't boot to CD, I can't get into BIOS ot change the boot order07:49
cdoublejjso i partitioned my drive 4 ways 1st part. is 98se 2 and 3 are storage and 5 witch consist ofa swap and then a ext307:49
cdoublejjdo i want my mount point to be /boot or just /07:49
MarkProffittI would love to have some meaninglyful suggestion07:49
HPTwhiteMarkProffitt: you cant get to the BIOS?07:49
MarkProffittNO07:49
MarkProffittI have said that 4 times now07:50
HPTwhitewell then get that fixed and come back when youre done07:50
MarkProffittHOW ???????07:50
maginotMarkProffitt, you have to go to a support place where someone could fix your hardware, this have nothingto do with ubuntu or even linux.07:50
VigoMarkProffitt: > http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000976.htm That may help.07:50
HPTwhite(not being rude, but if you cant change BIOS boot order there's not much help we can provide07:50
MarkProffittThe computer was perfect right from the store ithen I tried to install Ubuntu and the thing is now a brick07:51
daroluTru7h, maybe reinstalling os-prober will do it; "sudo apt-get remove --purge os-prober" and then "sudo apt-get install os-prober"07:51
maginotHPTwhite, its liking talk to a door. Really, I gave up.07:51
maginot*like07:52
cdoublejjhmm i just found out "/" means root07:52
maginotcdoublejj, yep, its the deeper place of you filesystem ;)07:52
cdoublejjand dangerous if you mes with it07:52
maginotvery ;X07:53
HPTwhitemaginot: I know: but I was being blamed for being rude and I was just trying to stand my ground; I am far from rude. I just want to help. that was my whole point07:53
MarkProffittYou are rude07:53
Tru7hdarolu: Upon reinstalling, I get "Package os-prober is not available, but is referred to by another package... E: Package os-prober has no installation candidate" (with some messages as the ...)07:53
MarkProffittI am telling you exactly what is happening. I have read everything you have said07:53
MarkProffittits not helping07:53
HPTwhiteMarkProffitt you are out of line. if i had the right permisssions you would be banned/kicked right about now07:54

MarkProffittTHEN HELP!!!!07:54
daroluTru7h, "sudo apt-get install os-prober-udeb"07:54

HPTwhiteMark you might want to go another route then07:55
llutzif you cannot enter BIOS, it IS a hardware problem and now stop trolling07:55
maginotMarkProffitt, its obivious that you dont know what you are talkin about, not even the basic about how a computer works07:55

HPTwhiterocket we are trying to help, but Mark needs to be respectful07:57
LoniaMarkProffitt, could you describe precisely which steps you took to get into this mess?07:57
maginotMarkProffitt, go and learn about how a computer works, how a bios works and how its related to you operaton system and you will learn that you are ignoring what we are talking.07:57

maginotori, wine help isn't on this channel.07:58
llutzori: /j #winehq07:58

knoppiesori, Other than use windows for directX Im not sure. I think your going to have to find the #wine channel and hope they are active at the moment07:58
maginotllutz, what irc do you use?07:58
MarkProffittI just got a brand new HP Pavilion dv7-3165dx with Windows 7 Home Premium.  The computer was perfect. I tired to install Ubunut in a partition.  It failed and trashed the partion table.  Now I can't boot to anything and can't recover and can't reinstall Ubunut either.07:59
Tru7hdarolu: Apt-get package failed; used the link you mentioned, os-prober was installed but sudo update-grub still displays the same message: "boot: No such file or directory"07:59
llutzmaginot: ?07:59
knoppiesMarkProffitt, did it come with a windows7 install disc? Or a recovery partition?07:59
maginotllutz, /j doesn't work here lol ;P07:59
rocket16MArkProffitt: Oh, that is easy, just reinstall Grub, may I say how?07:59
llutzmaginot: /join then07:59
Tru7hkProffitt> HOW ???????07:59
Tru7h*>* kProffitt> HOW ???????07:59
maginotMarkProffitt, Your partition table have nothing to do with your BIOS.07:59
HPTwhitewow /j doesnt work in what client? lol08:00
MarkProffittNo it did not come with a disc.  I made a restore disc before doing this.08:00
Tru7h*>* Apologies, client issue08:00
rocket16MarkProffitt: Do you have the Ubuntu Live CD?08:00
mtx_initI cant get my cam to work with tinychat, but it works fine with chatrt and cheese, any ideas?  I set the flash permissions and I am in the video group08:01
maginotHPTwhite, actually you're right, works here, the last time I tried was about 6 years ago (I'm sure it doesn't work that time) lol08:01
MarkProffittI have the disc that is made from downloading08:01
rocket16MarkProffitt: Ok, that will do, :)08:01
rocket16MarkProffitt: Ok, now I am saying how to reinstall grub, it is easy08:01
HPTwhiteloo maginot08:01
knoppiesrocket16, im listening.08:02
HPTwhitelol* rather08:02
rocket16knoppoes: Ok, lol08:02
Loniarocket16, It's posible that something crashed the ubuntu installation?08:02
daroluTru7h, I just read that os-prober is not necessary, this may be risky but you can try it, "sudo aptitude purge os-prober" this will uninstall os-prober; then run "sudo update-grub" remember the 11_windows file you created? make usre it has the correct entry (hd0,2)08:03
Loniarocket16, I mean , to the poit it made de HD useless08:03
maginotMarkProffitt, Do you want to reinstall your ubuntu? So just make your BIOS boot the CD and reinstall it. A partition table problem doesn't stop you from doing that.08:04
knoppiesLonia, technically anything is possible, but we are trying to look at a cup half full, and hoping that the partitions are still in tact.08:04
rocket16Lonia: MAy be, but in that case, a full reformat is required08:04
maginotLonia, useless until a next try, not useless to send to the trash08:04
knoppiesmaginot, dont dump it in the trash, give it to me, I will make good use of it (at least some of it).08:05
Loniarocket16, Ok, I got into something similar a few years ago, the live CD solved it, hope it does this time08:05
Tru7hdarolu: sudo update-grub succeeded; rebooting now08:05
rocket16Lonia: Let us hope so, otherwise it will be hard08:05
Loniamaginot,Ok I get it08:05
* maginot talking about making a good use I need a 3th disk =X08:05
Loniarocket16, thanks for the reply08:05
daroluTru7h, good luck08:06
HPTwhitei have an interesting question.....not to sound like a noob or anything....but is there a way to run linux like in a virtual world? like not making a seperate partition and not just booting from a cd, but like a program/window of it?08:06
Tru7hdarolu: Grub now loads the OS selection list, but Windows 7 is not on the list.08:06
Tru7hdarolu: I have Linux 2.6.31-14-generic and the same as recovery mode, plus memtest8608:06
daroluTru7h, did you run "sudo update-grub" after editing your 11_windows file?08:07
rocket16Lonia: My pleasure, :)08:07
HPTwhiteyou can dual boot windows 7 and ubuntu....ive done it08:07
jeanfiHPTwhite, wubi?08:07
HPTwhitewubi?08:07
knoppiesHPTwhite, yes, its called using a virtual machine, i recommend you look at suns virtualbox.08:07
jeanfiHPTwhite, http://wubi-installer.org/08:07
LoniaHPTwhite, t you mean like some of us use windows in Virtualbox?08:07
gotttoHPTwhite: virtualbox will do it08:07
rocket16jeanfi: There is better solution available.08:07
Tru7hdarolu: Yes, I did.08:07
daroluTru7h, OK, reboot and Windows should be on your list08:07

jeanfirocket16, probably I have no real experience I do the opposite, running windows in virtualbox in ubuntu:)08:08
daroluTru7h, even if it is not displayed in the update-grub list (as it uses os-prober to generate that list)08:08
maginotAndre, I use VBox for many things like when need to do something on windows, but a good computer is recommended08:08
Tru7hdarolu: Rebooting once more.08:08
daroluTru7h, good luck08:08
jeanfirocket16, but some friends are using wubi with sucess, what is the better tool?08:08
rocket16jeanfi: Wubi is nice, but slow08:09

york105HPTwhite, wubi will actually install Ubuntu and is not a virtual environment08:11
HPTwhiteok that was a dumb question....ummmmmm......what distro is that virtualbox08:11
maginotfugates?08:11
Tru7hdarolu: I'm currently using (hd0,2) in my 11_Windows file, should I try (hd0,1)?08:11
llutzHPTwhite: its a virtualization-software, no distro08:11
maginotVirtualBox is a Virtual Machine, it emulates other computers inside it. Its like a JVM for OSs08:11
daroluTru7h, windows 7 may be on the list, but it's set to be hidden (the list) you need to configure your /etc/default/grub file08:11
ayam_jagoHPTwhite : /j #vbox08:11
ayam_jago:d08:11

HPTwhitethx gotto08:12
gotttodenada08:12
Tru7hdarolu: I'm in the file, what should I change?08:12
jeanfirocket16, my understanding of wubi is that it is not a virtualization tool, it 'just' allow to have the root fs in a windows partition file, so just the i/o should have a performance impact I guess?08:12
* york105 suggest using the grub-update command08:12

MarkProffittmaginot, HPTwhite  I figured out how to get this laptop to boot to CD. This new HP laptop has a bizarre BIOS08:23
maginotMarkProffitt, =)08:24
darkk^maginot, yes. I set it up using usual text install, evreything was ok, then I installed all suggested updates - and voila, I have to rescue system from bare bash shell :-)08:24
daroluTru7h, this is my grub file, I have menu, compare them: http://paste.ubuntu.com/401021/08:24
daroluTru7h, remember to run "sudo update-grub" after changing the file08:24
maginotdarkk^, Hmm did you updated the kernel too?08:24
darkk^maginot, yes, according to /var/log/apt/term.log my kernel was upgraded from 2.6.31.14.27 to 2.6.31.20.3308:25
kalesianthe_gamer: no clue then..08:25
Tru7hdarolu: Differences: My GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET is false, as you mentioned I should set; additionally, I am missing the "vga=792", there is nothing between my double quotes.08:26
daroluTru7h, my bad; the documentation I read said "false - A counter will display"08:27
Jim_BeanHey, I have a Aspire 4520, and according to lspci it has a Broadcom wireless chip... How do I get it to work?08:27
Tru7hdarolu: Should I make it true?08:27
maginotdarkk^, if your lvm partition was working fine, and it says okay there, them the problem is with your NTFS drive08:27
MarkProffittYou guys can do what ever you want but if you want to get converts to Linux I suggest treating people who are frustrated with respect and assume they might actually know what they are talking about.08:27
daroluTru7h, the vga=792 is not important right now, it is used to set the Virtual Terminal resolution; make it true, yes (that's what I have and I do have a menu)08:28
gottto!bcm > Jim_Bean08:28
ubottuJim_Bean, please see my private message08:28
Tru7hdarolu: Setting true, running update-grub and rebooting.08:28
murlidharhi all is it possible that i can set autohinting for bold fonts to 'slight' and regular fonts to 'full'?08:28
llutzMarkProffitt: if you'd read here for a while, you'd know that most of the people actually doesn't know what they are talking about (even if they're sure to know)08:28
MarkProffittllutz,  hahaha08:29
Tru7hdarolu: I still have no menu.08:29
darkk^maginot, do you have any idea why initramfs may be interested in NTFS partition? :-)08:29
Tru7hdarolu: What if I tried update-grub2?08:30
daroluTru7h, that's very weird, the settings on the pastebin are the way I have it, and I do have a menu; sure try update-grub2; anyways, pressing ESC (on the grub loading string) displays the menu08:31
Tru7hdarolu: I have the same settings as you. I've updated grub2 and am restarting, I'll try your ESC trick.08:31
daroluTru7h, just to check; you do modify the /etc/default/grub file with sudo and you save the changes right?08:32
Tru7hdarolu: Yes, of course.08:32
Tru7hdarolu: ESC didn't work to me, I saw something about "General error mounting filesystem" before it went to the ubuntu login08:34
maginotdarkk^, did you read my last 3 comments? My irc just droped here08:34
excoI want to report a bug but I'm not sure against which package08:34
maginotexco, so how do you know is a bug?08:35
excomaginot: ^^ *rofl*08:35
Vigoexco: Check the local logs?08:35
darkk^maginot, the last comment I see was about NTFS - I'm sure, it's not the reason. As you can see, I find out that udevadm script was broken (see comment #20), now I've just understood WHY it is broken and have some idea how to repair it :-)08:35
Tru7hdarolu: Just to clarify, I've been editing /etc/default/grub under sudo.08:36
excoI think it's debian-installer - delete and use whole medium in partitioning screen doesn't show a swap partition will be generated but there is one generated08:36
daroluTru7h, try holding down the SHIFT key while Grub boots, that should display the menu; the mounting error is odd, win7 still uses ntfs right?08:36
excoalso there's a translation error (to German) ... but I can't find the corresponding string in launchpad/translate08:37
daroluTru7h, yes, /etc/default/grub sets the options like displaying the menu, adding a background image, etc.08:37
Tru7hdarolu: Yes, the Win7 partition was formatted with NTFS. I'll reboot while holding down shift.08:37
Vigoexco: What version?08:37
excodaily of karmic08:37
exco,vig08:37
exco, Vigo08:37
Tru7hdarolu: Holding shift has successfully displayed the menu, but Windows 7 is not on it.08:38
syx08:38
daroluTru7h, :( OK these are my final ideas; modify both /etc/grub.d/11_windows and /etc/grub.d/40_custom files with: http://paste.ubuntu.com/401020/08:39
Vigoexco: You can de-select that, http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/jaunty/man1/dselect.1.html08:40
TomV_415Tru7h: You may also want to check out this option to build the menu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2#Automatic%20Entries08:41
bsdgrouphi! is there possibility to setup irc server that can communicate with ldap, I want to setup irc server that will allow connection to server only if they has acc in ldap db...08:41
excoVigo: so I should check with dselect on the usb stick what version of debian-installer it is using?08:41
Vigoexco: You can do that if you wish, yes, here is the karmic page: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/karmic/man1/dselect.1.html08:42
TomV_415Tru7h: Looks like you may have already gone down that road.. never mind .  good luck!08:42

bsdgrouphi! is there possibility to setup irc server that can communicate with ldap, I want to setup irc server that will allow connection to server only if members have account in ldap db...08:45
daroluTru7h, if this fails too all I can think of is installing "sudo apt-get install startupmanager" and hope the GUI fixes it (it's almost 3a.m. where I live and I can't think of anything else)08:45
abhinav!best | jasonmchristos08:45
ubottujasonmchristos: 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.08:45
Tru7hdarolu: It worked! I now have "Windows 7" and "Microsoft Windows 7" in my list, which should I choose? (by the way, I still have to hold shift to bring up the menu)08:45
ackt1ccards anyone08:45
Tru7hTomV_415: Thank you, either way. :)08:45
abhinavjasonmchristos: rsync over ssh is good .. in addition you could try a package called unison, if you're looking for file sync08:45
jasonmchristosabhinav: i will look up unison08:46
daroluTru7h, excellent! both options have the same configuration so any of them should work; I'd put my money on the Microsoft Windows 7 one as it is the one in 40_custom08:46
york105jasonmchristos, rsync is far more sophisticated than the plane jane ssh we use, have a look at rsync man for more info08:46
Tru7hdarolu: That's understandable, I'm in the same time zone as you and I have a class at 9:30 so I'll be calling it a night soon. Will your last suggestion make it so I don't have to hold shift?08:46
maginotbsdgroup, I think you're in the wrong channel...08:46
bsdgroupwhy?08:47
prodigelHi all. I've just installed karmic and updated it, and I have problems connecting to it using xdmcp. I get the login screen, I can fill my user/password, but after authentication all I see is the mouse cursor while the screen is black.08:47
Tru7hdarolu: I chose "Microsoft Windows 7" and got "BOOTMGR is missing / Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"08:47
jasonmchristosyork105: i thought rsync was a seperate command and i would just use ssh for transport08:47
abhinavjasonmchristos: unison is geared more towards syncing multiple versions (and diff, etc) than backup - for backup rsync is good. and there may be some backup tools that use it (gui based)08:47
ackt1cdamn08:47
Vigojasonmchristos: That is kinda complicating things, one home box to another , back in time or many other back-up utilities are available, and there are many that are Network based for what you are asking.08:47
ackt1cthese schemes themes and colors are fucking with me08:47
daroluTru7h, my last suggestion does the exact same thing you did manually but you can give it a shot; it's really weird you don't have a menu after modifying the grub file with the settings I gave you08:47
Tru7hdarolu: I agree, it is weird, I'm trying the "Windows 7" entry08:48
maginotbsdgroup, here is ubuntu support, your question is related to irc and Ldap08:48
jasonmchristoswell i really like ssh so would it be as simple as connecting to my ssh server and issung an rsync command?08:48
theadminHelp required urgently, i installed OOo3.2 from OpenOffice.org, and CAN'T FIND IT08:48
ranjanwhich is the google chrome os channel??? or anyone who has built chrome os??08:48
bsdgroupis there channel that is suitable for my question?08:48
Tru7hdarolu: "Windows 7" gives a different error, it reads "error: two argiments required / Press any key to continue..."08:48
ackt1ceveryone got good seats to watch the game?08:48
york105jasonmchristos, that is correct, all ssh does is gives you an encrypted tunnel through which comms can take place, rsync remote update protocol does the dirty work of comparing files on remote servers and speeds up transfers if remote file already exists, also read incremental backups08:48
Tru7hdarolu: I'm booting ubuntu and trying your last suggestion08:49
daroluTru7h, uhmmm I have no idea what BOOTMGR error is as it is Windows-related08:49
maginotbsdgroup, maybe #ldap, or #irc... I don't know. try /list08:49
gotttotheadmin: what was wrong with using the repos?08:49
bsdgroupthnx!08:49

jasonmchristosok i think i will look into rsync more thanks guys08:49
Tru7hdarolu: I could try fixing boot with the Win7 CD, but I'm pretty sure that will murder GRUB08:49
ackt1chow do i see my status screen08:49
maginottheadmin, executing oowriter don't opens oofficce?08:49
gotttotheadmin: is it in /usr/bin?08:49
daroluTru7h, OK you can delete the 11_windows file from /etc/grub.d/ then; the Microsoft Windows 7 option works fine; the bootmgr missing file is Windows issue08:49
llutz!ot > ackt1c08:49
ubottuackt1c, please see my private message08:49
theadmingottto: No idea, that's what i'm wondering08:50
Tru7hdarolu: Deleting the file now.08:50
theadminmaginot: Hm, let's try08:50
theadminmaginot: That opens Ubuntu's stupid 3.108:50
gotttotheadmin: it won't show on a menu if you didn't use the repo08:50
gotttos08:50
daroluTru7h, yeah, I think so too; I googled it and the first results I got said you have to use the CD/DVD, but as you said, it will most likely kill GRUB08:50
ackt1chow do i switch to private message?08:50
ackt1cor the damn status screen08:50
theadmingottto: I can make menu shortcuts myself, ok? I just need to know where the hell are the binaries08:51
ackt1chaha08:51
york105Tru7h, that is right, grub 'encapsulates' windows kernel so even if you want to boot windows you pass through grub, installing windows will kill the encapsulation grub has over the boot process08:51
gotttotheadmin: try in a terminal   ls /usr/bin | grep ooo08:51
theadmingottto: Hm, i have a feeling it'll go to /opt08:52
Tru7hdarolu: Deleted the specified file, now "Windows 7" has disappeared from the GRUB menu but I still have "Microsoft Windows 7"; choosing it still displays the "BOOTMGR is missing" error.08:52

kelvinellawhats new with ubuntu?08:52
ackt1ctv08:53
Tru7hyork105: I've found that I can fix Windows 7 boot with the Win7 CD, and I can fix GRUB with the Ubuntu CD, but I can't get both working at the same time, and obviously carrying both CDs around with me is not ideal08:53
theadmingottto: Hm, wait, no. There are bunch of other files/folders/stuff but i can't find the bins :/08:53
daroluTru7h, the BOOTMGR is a Windows 7-related error; I don't really know a way to fix it (may be hard to believe but I haven't used Windows 7 nor Vista at all); I suppose you can simply copy/paste a BOOTMGR file, maybe it is in your CD/DVD08:54
daroluwithout needing to use the recovery option from the DVD (when you boot with it)08:54
gotttotheadmin: try in terminal   find -name / ooobase08:55
york105Tru7h, I am not aware of the background of you issue here but the general practice is to install Windows first and then install Ubuntu and let Grub recognise all existing operating systems, can do so manually by using grub-update command.08:55
Tru7hdarolu: That's ideal; also, I'm impressed, I definitely use Ubuntu more than Windows but I still use Windows for taking notes in class (it has a good formula editor in Office 2007) and for gaming08:55
theadmingottto: Uh, i think you got a wrong syntax. Do you mean "find / -name ooobase"?08:55
gotttotheadmin: oops yep08:55
gotttotheadmin: or search for soffice08:56
Tru7hyork105: I agree, that should work, but I've tried reinstalling Ubuntu twice and both times it has failed to recognize Windows in both the installer (it says no operating systems were detected on my hard drive) and in the boot loader, even when I run grub-update08:56
ShazbotMcMurderWhy should you use gksudo over sudo?08:56
gottto!gksudo08:56
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)08:56
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  many here prefer to use gksudo for "graphical" apps08:57
o__helllllooooooooooo08:57
maginotHi08:57
york105Tru7h, is Windows on the same disc as Ubuntu (although on a different logical partition)?08:57
Tru7hyork105: Yes, this is a laptop and it has only one HDD.08:57
daroluTru7h, oh yeah video games is probably the only thing I miss (sometimes). Did the startupmanager helped with the no grub-menu issue?08:57
ShazbotMcMurdercoz_, does it really make a difference?08:57
ShazbotMcMurderor is it just that it looks a pretty?08:58
Tru7hdarolu: I've been messing with options, sorry, what was the startupmanager command again?08:58
york105Tru7h, and if I may enquire, what does your partition table look like?08:58
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  well there can on rare occasions be issues  because sudo can run an application with root pirvileges but use the user's configuration08:58
theadminFound it. Thanks a LOT, gotto, had to make a crazy find syntax though: "find / -name soffice 2>/dev/null"08:58
llutzShazbotMcMurder: it does08:58
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  i think that is the main issue08:58
gotttoShazbotMcMurder: it sets the graphical environment up properly - See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why08:59
daroluTru7h, "sudo apt-get install startupmanager" the manager is found under System-Admin08:59
ShazbotMcMurdergottto, okay thanks08:59
theadminNow, how do i remove ooO 3.1?08:59
Tru7hyork105: I recall from the installation that I had one 100 MB partition for some Windows thing as well as a 200 GB partition for the actual Windows OS, plus a 100 GB partition for ubuntu which I let the installer set up. I don't remember the specifics and I'm not sure how to call them up.08:59
maginottheadmin, with apt-get remove08:59
gotttotheadmin: sudo apt-get purge08:59
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  personally I have never had issues to date  and its been 6 years08:59
llutztheadmin: aptitude purge '~nopenoffice'08:59
theadminllutz: "~nopenoffice"?!?! What on earth is that?09:00
gotttohehe09:00
ShazbotMcMurdercoz_, I've never had any noticeable problems, it's been a few years here also09:00
llutztheadmin: man aptitude (name contains)09:00
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  also some will tell you to use "aptitude"  I only use apt09:00
york105Tru7h,  if you are already logged into Linux can you upload the output of sudo fdisk -l to a paste service like paste.ubuntu.com09:00
maginotI don't like using aptitude to remove packages, it have to much initiative :P09:00
ShazbotMcMurdercoz_, aptitude and apt are very different things as I understand though09:00
ShazbotMcMurdercoz_, I also only use apt though :)09:01
coz_ShazbotMcMurder,  well aptitude is "older" I believe09:01
Tru7hdarolu: "E: Couldn't find package startupmanager", doesn't seem to be in the repos09:01

theadminllutz: It wants to remove 3.2 this way, i need to keep that but remove ONLY 3.109:01
maginotcoz_, aptitude is much newer09:01
llutztheadmin: then use a string only catching 3.109:01
york105maginot, aptitude handles dependencies better than apt, also its able to verify why you should or should not install any packages ( detect conflicts )09:02
theadminllutz: Example plz? I've no idea what package names are09:02
daroluTru7h, yes it is in the repos, it is pretty basic (check your software sources) anyways you can download it from: http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/startupmanager09:02
Tru7hyork105: Here's my output: http://paste.ubuntu.com/401033/09:02
llutztheadmin: "dpkg -l *openoffice*09:02
Tru7hdarolu: Probably it just doesn't show up since this is a fresh install (i.e. no updates); I haven't bothered updating since this is my second reformat09:03
ShazbotMcMurderhow do I add windows 7 to my menu.lst, I've been looking through a bunch of walkthroughs, but every one seems to say the same thing09:04
maginotyork105, not exactly, aptitude use to remove other packages too, like those you "dont" use and so on, its easy to remove openoffice and when you see many other things where removed too. Apt-get is very more strict, it does the remove and nothing else, don't try to "update" the system, if you know what I mean.09:04
ShazbotMcMurderwhich is already in my menu.lst for 'default non-linux distro'09:04
theadminBleh. I'll just use synaptic.09:04
ottoshmidthmm mysql doesn't start after setting default-character-set to utf8 :(((09:04
ShazbotMcMurderalso - how do I tell which hdd / partition it's on09:04
ShazbotMcMurderIt's actually on another whole hard drive09:04
maginottheadmin, which is a apt-get gui frontend =P09:04
ShazbotMcMurderwould 'mount' still work?09:04
Tru7hdarolu: sudo apt-get update allowed me to detect the file, sorry for my laziness09:05
theadminmaginot: Yep, and a SLOW one09:05
york105maginot, aye, agree but at the end of the day its what you like best, whisky or brandy, pick you poison09:05

Tru7hdarolu: Or is this just to make it so I don't have to hold shift?09:05
llutzmaginot: apt-frontend (like apt-get) not apt-get frontend09:05
darkk^maginot, not at all :-)09:06
maginotllutz, what?09:06
daroluTru7h, is OK, btw I saw your pastebin, first partition doesn't look right, and since you are logged in as root you don't need to use sudo :p09:06
llutzmaginot: synaptic is a gui apt-frontend (like apt-get) not apt-get frontend09:06
maginotllutz, ahh right.09:06
Tru7hdarolu: True, I have a tendency to be redundant, heh. Would that affect my output?09:06
darkk^maginot, it was half-upgraded udev09:07
Tru7hdarolu: Also, what doesn't look right about it?09:07
daroluTru7h, the startupmanager modifies the file you've been editing manually, you don't have much control with it (the gui) but it may fix your grub menu. And no, it doesn't affect your output.09:07

york105Tru7h, just read the output, the "Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary" line means that part of your disk is unusable, could be because when you were partitioning your drive you chose to go by megabytes and not cylinders anyway so does Windows on sda1 boot okay then?09:09
ShazbotMcMurderokay, well I found that out - there's a separator in my menu.lst - do I have to put something there, because I would really just like a space there, and it to be separated from the linux operating systems anywho09:09
maginotdarkk^, I just don't get it why did you had to created those nods  by hand09:10
daroluTru7h, it means the partition doesn't end wher it should ends (making it unusuable), fixing it may affect your sda2 partition, so don't touch it unless you are willing to run the risk of having to re-install windows (on sda2)09:10
darkk^maginot, broken udev could not create them ;)09:11
Tru7hyork105: Yes, I went by megabytes, not sure how to go by cylinders (I'm rather incompetent when it comes to partitioning). And no, Win7 doesn't boot, it give an error saying "BOOTMGR is missing / Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"09:11

darkk^maginot, no, udev was broken as dpkg was interrupted for some reason (don't know why, I have some assumption though) I had to run dpkg --configure -a09:13
daroluTru7h, I'm not sure what the chance would be as I'm not familiar with Win7 at all, I don't know if the BOOTMGR error needs re-installing of win7; I suppose re-installing is not needed and that creating/pasting a BOOTMGR file should fix it09:14
Justushi, is there a way to install a more up to date version of php5-fcgi on ubuntu jaunty server? I'd really like to not have to compile it myself09:14
gotttotheadmin: here ooobase is a shell script linking to soffice09:14
gottto...09:14
Tru7hdarolu: Google has told me that running "Windows Startup Repair" should fix the BOOTMGR issue, I'm relatively sure it won't screw up GRUB as long as I don't use bootrec.exe09:14
theadmingottto: Yeah, weird.09:14
theadminTru7h: Recovering GRUB is easy.09:14
gotttowhat's in a name09:14
daroluTru7h, you can try it, I can't really tell since I have never used Win7; go for it, if it kills grub2 you can always re-install it using a LiveCD09:15
Tru7htheadmin: I have no issues with recovering GRUB, the problem is, if I recover GRUB it still fails to recognize my Windows installation09:15
york105Tru7h, so to start with let's resolve the Windows boot issue. I am assuming you have recently upgraded to win7 from XP/Vista, you'll need the win7 setup disc. Insert the disc, reboot the computer, go to command prompt and issue the command bootrec /fixboot . Let it complete what it wants to do and reboot. Once done boot using an Ubuntu Live CD and go to command prompt and issue the update-grub command so it now recognises Windows. Yo09:15
york105u may want to try booting to windows once the fixboot command has finished its business.09:15
theadminTru7h: Have you tried "sudo update-grub"?09:15
Tru7htheadmin: Yes, a few times, as well as sudo update-grub2.09:16
Tru7hyork105: That sounds feasible, I'll try it out and let you know what happens.09:16
darolutheadmin, york105, Tru7h's initial problem was GRUB not adding Win7 to the boot list, he had to remove os-prober and edit /etc/grub.d/40_custom to add the entry; and now Windows 7 won't boot09:16
york105Tru7h, sure09:16
theadminHm. GRUB 1 did not detect my XP too :/09:17
ubuntu_fuck this shit09:18
Jimi_Neutralcan someone help me to find, install and configure grpoftpd please09:18
ubuntu_kill09:18
york105darolu thanks for that ; Tru7h in the light of what darolu has just pointed out i am guessing its the parameters you're passing to the windows boot command in grub that might have something to do with windows failing to boot09:19
Tru7hyork105: As a prerequisite to your suggestion, I'm trying the Startup Repair option. It probably won't work, but I figure it's worth a shot.09:19
Tru7hyork105: Scratch that, it failed.09:19
york105Tru7h, since you're up for it, yeah sure, why not :)09:19

tp43_Tru7h, yep, I think so.  My guess is you use the live cd to run update grub when you can't boot into your partition.  But I would follow a how to if I were you09:22

AbortDso are you trying to keep it out of the bottom panel or top?09:51
york105Tru7h, try workin on it later, any how simply put the bootmgr basically refers the 'bit' that the system trasnfers command to once level 1 boot loader is done09:51
Josh90AbortD: I was hoping both. But i might not be able to09:52

Jimi_Neutralhmm ok i obviously wasnt using vftp cause i can still access the box from this laptop lol09:52
Tru7hyork105: That makes sense, thanks so much for your help even if we didn't get everything working, I really appreciated it09:52
Jimi_Neutralmy god i am n ow so confused09:52
Tru7hFor now I'll just expand my Windows partition and go back to using Wubi09:52
AbortDJosh90, you can stop it in the bottom but not top you could hide it in the envelope though09:52
york105Tru7h, no worries ;) i'll be hanging around here so will resume debugging if you come back09:53

haavarosI'm looking for a way to make column width in compact view (gnome) dynamic ... is this possible? Or at least increasing the fixed width09:53
rocket16theadmin: Great!09:53
york105Tru7h, out of sheet curiosity why use WUBI?09:53
Tru7hyork105: Sounds good, though it won't be until later today, I need at least a couple hours of sleep :P09:53
Tru7hyork105: Thanks again, take care and have a good night09:53
AbortDi would have to see a screen of your upper right screen to help you honestly09:54
Tru7hyork105: I'll use Wubi because it works.09:54
VigoJimi_Neutral: That is the fun part.09:54
Tru7hyork105: I know it's known for compatability issues but in my case, it's what I had running before and I only started having issues when I tried installing Ubuntu to a real partition09:54
york105Tru7h, why not try a clean install, I mean installing Ubuntu is not rocket science, its kinda straight forward09:54
Jimi_NeutralVigo, it would be fun if it was a hobby and i didnt have my boss breathing down my neck09:55
Tru7hyork105: I have done so. I clean installed Ubuntu and then put Windows on after, but Ubuntu has failed in every case to recognize Windows.09:55
Jimi_NeutralVigo, i dont remeber installing any other ftp servers09:55
Jimi_NeutralVigo, obviously i cant set this proftp up until i have removed the other one right09:55
Josh90 AbortD:   ar   i see.09:55
york105Tru7h, :D sure Ubuntu will fail, as I said the general practice is to install Windows first and then put Ubuntu on your machine later09:55
s7He Everyone, am having issues with my mic while using skype on ubuntu 9.04. Plz help guide me on how to fix it.09:56
Tru7hyork105: I tried that as well, I had deleted Wubi (leaving only Windows on my machine) and then used a Karmic CD to install Ubuntu, and I ran into the same issue of GRUB not seeing Win709:56
edakiris7: are you interested in help setting up skype alternatives?09:57
VigoJimi_Neutral: After you crunch the numbers and look at the savings, actually no, forget the other OS that you worked with, we have stepped out of the Windows now, you can leave it or remove, really does not matter.09:57
york105Tru7h, whenever you're ready we'll resume this one09:57
Tru7hyork105: As of yet the only thing I've ever gotten to work properly on this machine is Wubi, so I'm going back to it for now09:57
theadminBy the way, if GRUB overwrites the windows bootloader, HOW windows manages to boot? :/09:57
yusufhi , i've problem with virtaulbox look > "Please install the virtualbox-ose-dkms package and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root."09:57
Jimi_NeutralVigo, i would porefe to remove09:57
maginottheadmin, grub loads it09:57
DJonestheadmin: Grub add's an entry for windows in its own boot loader09:57
york105theadmin, Grub never over writes its encapsulates itself over windows boot09:58
Tru7hyork105: That sounds excellent, I feel bad for bailing but I'm honestly falling out of my chair, will you be around tonight?09:58
theadminAs far as i understand, actually, Windows installs it's bootloader (ntldr) onto the system drive and "links" it to MBR...09:58
VigoJimi_Neutral: I understand, took me a while to get used to that also.09:58
york105Tru7h, I am here all day its breakfast time here in london, will be here all after noon09:58
yusufstall the virtualbox-ose-dkms package and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root." problem with virutal box please help please09:59

madjoeis it possible to make a shortcut (link) to a directory to behave like in Windows? once I open that shortcut, my path should be within that (original) directory.10:17
jribmadjoe: just use a symlink10:18
guestHello all sorry im back10:18
madjoejrib: any special flags I should use?10:18
Gneamadjoe: there are symbolic links, but it's not like windows where it's just a file, it's an actual link, so you're pwd would reflect either location10:18
theadminmadjoe: Just kinda like "ln -s originalfile linkname"10:18
jakewc2does anybody have any ideas please?10:18
jribmadjoe: no, ln -s TARGET NAME.  Or just rigth click -> create symlink (or whatever it says)10:18

jribtheadmin: thank you10:19

ubottujakewc2: Avoid your questions being followed by a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !attitude10:19
madjoetheadmin, jrib, Gnea: I already used "ln -s" but when I "cd linkname", my pwd will be "linkname", not "myoriginaldirname"10:20
jribmadjoe: so?10:20
kanervrHello g0bl1n, welcome to #ubuntu10:20

s7hi, can u guide me how to fix the fault on my mic when using skype in ubuntu 9.0410:20
theadminjrib: Oh. I got it. He want's the link to be something like... say, link is /home/link and origininal directory is /root/somedir/. So when he cd's into /home/link/stuff he wants it to actually be /root/somedir/stuff in $PWD10:21

Vigos7: Do you have all the drivers installed?10:22
s7yes, i have all drivers installed10:22
theadminmadjoe: No such think as "soft link", there are hard and symbolic ones. I think you need a hard one, so, omit "-s" in ln.10:23
theadminmadjoe: Just "ln target linkname"10:23
