Purpleygothenburg: Ok, I really dont have much to go on except that I installed btnx beforehand00:28
unopCyL, you only need a terminal if you are going to interact with the script - i.e. view it's output or enter something with the keyboard, etc00:28

b0n1if i have a file that i can run in console on double click, what is the command for running it in console00:31
Keith-BlindUserI don't have DHCP in use, my machine still sets itself to none on boot, no matter what I do, and if I attempt to start up the hostname service it syas unknown instance. Using 64-bit Lucid00:31
b0n1i have to run it with root00:31
gothenburgPurpley: I know. And Flash isn't the best "program" in the world00:31

SlidingHornastropirate: probably not the best place here...00:33
gothenburgJon--: and this channel is UBUNTU00:33
CynthiaGPurpley: that may occur because X in Ubuntu (and Unix in general) handles both the video output and the mouse access. Thus both actions are kind of "synchronous" on X, which cannot use more than one core.00:33
b0n1SlidingHorn,  unknown command sudo ./00:33
Keith-BlindUserAnd the strangest thing is that both /etc/hosts and /etc/hostname contain matching names.00:33

mneptokJon--: what version of gparted does BT use, and which does Ubuntu use? and if patchsets have been applied, what do those patchsets contain?00:45
SlidingHornb0n1: *Disclaimer* This method is NOT recommended, but it could work.  I would be VERY careful about doing this if I were to do it at all, but.. </disclaimer> You could possibly do it by opening your file manager with sudo then opening the file...again..it's HIGHLY frowned upon to use a graphical file manager with root privileges00:45
Jon--CynthiaG: It's resizing an NTFS partition with Windows 7 installed.00:45
DaekdroomSlidingHorn, what's wrong with opening a file manager with sudo?00:46
CynthiaGNTFS partitions have trouble with ending a resize properly. It just hangs at the end. Sometimes it uses 100% CPU, sometimes it just hangs. :|00:46
b0n1ok SlidingHorn00:46
SlidingHorndaekdroom: because you can do serious damage to your system without any kind of warning or questioning00:46
Jon--CynthiaG: Ahh hell. I just went to run GParted to get the version (someone had asked) and I think it canceled the process. I really hope that didn't damage anything.00:47
SlidingHorndaekdroom & b0n1: one thing about linux is that it assumes you know what you're doing (for better or for worse).  When you are in a graphical mode with root privileges, you won't be questioned no matter what you try to do, and that is dangerous and highly advised against00:48

brickywhen burning an audio cd it asks me to save the image as home/owner/brasero.cue03:03
ActionParsnipDSpair: ok then what's the problem? I use flashplugin64-installer :)03:03

DSpairActionParsnip: In either Firefox or Chromium.03:04
ActionParsnipDSpair: i'd remove it, then reinstall it03:04
DSpairActionParsnip: Been there, done that, 3 times.03:04
ActionParsnipDSpair: make sure you remove the config (or use --purge) to completely remove it03:05
DSpairActionParsnip: Even used purge.03:05
XFGoldenBBLOk .. thats goofy ... wonder why the devs didn't do something like windows .. x86_64 and x86_32 browsers03:05
ActionParsnipDSpair: ok when you go to use flash, do you get ANYTHING (even a white / black box)?03:05
DSpairActionParsnip: In FF, I get nothing, In Chromium, I get a little black box with a sickly computer icon in it and a message which reads that the plugin crashed.03:06
XFGoldenBBLDSpair: maybe you're not holding your mouth right .. :p03:07
ActionParsnipDSpair: hmm, have you tried removing the package and manually copying the .so file to /usr/lib/chromium-browser/plugins03:07

fuzzybunny69yDoes anyone know how to troubleshoot the problem where your computer just randomly locks up completely where you have to do a hard reset. I have always wondered how you would isolate down what causes that.03:10
XFGoldenBBLDSpair you should run some CPU burning stuff at 98.9% cpu time .. that should slow flash down a little03:10

seahorse_when using it i had the same hard lock problem03:12

codebrainzfuzzybunny69y, is it a laptop?03:17
fuzzybunny69ycodebrainz, yeah03:17
codebrainzfuzzybunny69y, maybe check the ram isn't loose or whatver, might explain why it can pass memtest and only sometimes freezes.  just a total guess03:18

codebrainzkaflowski, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ntop03:42
swoodsActionParsnip: Don't doubt it is, but it's been reported repeatedly with wubi and upgrade installs. I assume since I'm remastering it treats it similarly.03:42
ActionParsnipenav: then you can drop to root recovery mode and run: dpkg -l | grep nvidia    and remove the packages found03:42
codebrainzkaflowski, I don't use this program myself, I just know of it's existence03:42

codebrainzkaflowski, i think some configuration is required03:43
test34maco, I dont think so03:43
swoodsActionParsnip: From what I gather, there is some bug in the way that grub-pc is configured on install that keeps it from well..configuring itself in certain situations. This isn't as much of a problem on upgrade installs since the previous bootloader is there. On clean installs (like this will be) that can be a showstopping bug.03:44
enavactually im running video on the ATI03:44
swoodsI'll probably pursue this more if I can or at least write up how I fixed it if this does indeed work..03:44
XFGoldenBBLenav you should do that on windows .. never had luck with multidisplay in linux everrrrr..03:44
ActionParsnipswoods: i avoid wubi. i think its as bad an idea as the live gentoo cd03:44

joaojeronimoHi everyone, I have a doubt.... My server is behind a router that is behind a cable modem that is possibly behind a lot of stuff from the ISP (I don't have a dedicated IP address...). Is there any way to access this server from outside (anywhere else on the planet) ? Maybe some method ? Other than a VPN ?03:45
Loshkikaflowski: I don't know the first thing about it, but going by the error message, I'd start by creating /var/lib/ntop/rrd and make it owned by 'nobody'....03:45

ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.03:51

SlidingHornkaflowski you can configure them via the guis mentioned to require permission for applications to access the internet03:52

wamichohow to make gnome shell default any idea people?03:59
codebrainzdunpeal, unless there's a gnome-terminal specific thingy03:59
dunpealcodebrainz: yeah, I'm trying to avoid that, since that .bashrc may be run by terminal emulators that are not, in fact, supportive of xterm-256color.04:00
mopikaflowski: I would just install firestarter and close the tcp ports that the game runs on.04:00

codebrainzdunpeal, i see one way to do it.  make a shell script, inside export TERM=whatever and /bin/bash, then under profiles, select "Run a custom command instead of my shell"04:05

autochthoniccodebrainz, this didn't occur to me, but I have an older wacom in the other room, I'm going to see if it works without any tweaking.04:20

autochthoniccodebrainz, it does. That makes this all the more frustrating.04:22
codebrainzplustax, yeah, it's kinda hard to troubleshoot then.  what's happening is, the initrd is like a "pre" OS that runs to get the linux kernel setup.  at the end of this init stuff, it switches to your real install (root filesystem), but it's currently failing to find the drive/partition/filesystem where your install is04:22

VvWolverinevVhey, i'm not sure if this is a bug or by design, but when i drag something on my desktop, i can no longer cancel the drag like in previous versions of ubuntu.  does anyone know how to fix this?04:29
VvWolverinevVhitting esc does nothing04:30
mopikaflowski: sure why not?04:30
codebrainzVvWolverinevV, "cancel the drag"?04:30
TANKwolverine, clarify? what do you mean by that?04:30
mopikaflowski: just when your playing that game04:30
kaflowskimopi: because then i wouldn't be able to play multiplayer04:30
darko3dsudo apt-get autoremove --purge wine <-doesnt remove everything? how do i do it04:31
kaflowskimopi: do you know a lot about what you're talking about?04:31
R3cur51v3umm, VvWolverinevV was pretty unambiguous04:31
VvWolverinevVcodebrainz: TANK: cancel the drag like hitting escape used to04:31
R3cur51v3when you hit esc, it cancels04:31
mopikaflowski: blocking internet to that game restricts that anyway04:31
mopikaflowski: yes I do04:31
codebrainzcanels what?04:31
codebrainzcancels what?04:31
Random832codebrainz: uh wtf04:31
VvWolverinevVR3cur51v3: does esc still work for you in 10.04?04:31
Random832how do you not know what canceling a drag means04:31
R3cur51v3Why don't you try it, if you are incapable of figuring it out.04:31
Random832it's a simple concept04:31
Random832you start to drag something04:31
Random832then you don't want to drop it anywhere04:31
R3cur51v3VvWolverinevV, IDK, I hardly ever use the feature04:31
Random832so you cancel it04:32
Random832it's not rocket surgery04:32
FloodBot2Random832: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.04:32
R3cur51v3VvWolverinevV, yeah, when moving a file from one point to the other on the desktop, I can cancel it.04:32
codebrainzRandom832, also don't be a tool ... I just didn't understand what he meant04:32
Random832i didn't understand how you didn't understand04:32
acerimmer_darko3d: you had questions?04:32

codebrainzautochthonic, just tested my Bamboo MTE-450 in 10.04 and it "just works"04:34
acerimmer_darko3d: ah, yes, you're with guy with painful wine.  well *purge SHOULD get it all but it seems not to at least for wine. however, if you've removed the program itself, the config files may take up space but not harm you.04:34
ubottuoffensive: 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!04:34
codebrainzWhat purpose does that serve?  is it some l33t haxxing?04:35
acerimmer_codebrainz: probablyu04:35
plustaxcodebrainz I put in a live cd04:35
TANKnah, leethaxxing requires backtrack lawl04:35
plustaxits been stuck at the ubuntu gray logo for 10 minutes.04:35
darko3dacerimmer_: how do i remove the config, cause thats what causing the problem, i'm trying to make a fresh install04:35
R3cur51v3plustax, try rebooting04:35
acerimmer_darko3d: i'm going to suggest a quick kill since you've been dealing with this for hours - create a new account.  New account = no .conf files for wine04:36
pepeethose attacks are *random*, but freenode ops can't manage to stop them04:36
unopdarko3d,  sudo aptitude purge wine  # but that won't remove any files in your homedir like ~/.wine, you'll have to manually delete them if you want04:36
codebrainzpepee, what purpose do they serve, if any?04:36
acerimmer_unop: yeah that's what he tried.  Seems he missed a few and it's driving him a little off kilter...04:37
R3cur51v3pepee, isn't there a Ubuntu overflow channel for the web client?04:37
R3cur51v3pepee, can't we just have *all* people signing on at first be redirected to that channel?04:37
R3cur51v3It would thwart the attack.04:37
unopR3cur51v3, this problem affects all channels, not just #ubuntu04:37
bodzillaI always get attacks registerd at gateway when ever I go on irc04:38
vishaltelangrepepee, then how to stop these ops while violating the channel?04:38
darko3dacerimmer_: wont creating a new account also leave me without all the rest of the programs configurations i already made04:38
acerimmer_darko3d: yes.04:38
plustaxalright codebrainz now its stuck at a blinking cursor.04:38

BPowerUgh. I uninstalled Gwibber but for some reason the indicator remains -- how do I get rid of the "broadcast" indicator?04:39
acerimmer_darko3d: if I knew how to kill each wine cfg file i'd happily tell you but you've already tried exactly what I would do - AND you did it without breaking your system!04:39
codebrainzplustax, did you "restart" or did you power off without shutting down properly?04:39
pepeethat is my source, read that04:39
plustaxI powered it off04:39
plustaxhow do I restart it at just the logo?04:39

XFGoldenBBLif I dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/sdd and then dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdd .... Would I be right in assuming that 100% of /dev/sdd would be obliterated .. as in partition tables, mbr, eveything ? I can't seem to get rid of the damn supposed guid partition table thats not really on it by any other means..04:41
darko3dthe stupid fucking bitch is still there in the application menu04:41
ubottudarko3d: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family friendly.04:41
_jesse_darko3d: :P you can remove it from there too by right clicking hte menu04:41
codebrainzXFGoldenBBL, is it mounted or something?04:41
XFGoldenBBLit's not mounted04:41
codebrainzXFGoldenBBL, the /dev/zero one alone should completely overwrite every block on the disk with zeroes, correct04:42
BPowerdarko3d, darko3d if you want to remove it from your computer all together, you just need to run an apt-get remove command: sudo apt-get remove wine wine1.204:42
plustaxgot the gui up for the live cd04:42
XFGoldenBBLbut I want to add it to an array to replace a dead disk ..this disk just came out of an EOM package .. I suppose it should be blank but it could be a refurb or something and I didn't know it04:43
acerimmer_darko3d: System>Preferences>Main Menu.  Probably need to log out/in to see the effect04:43
codebrainzplustax, pm me and I can have you try a few things if you want04:43
BPowerUgh. I uninstalled Gwibber but for some reason the indicator remains -- how do I get rid of the "broadcast" indicator?04:43
acerimmer_BPower: right click, remove from panel04:43
BPoweracerimmer_, don't think you know what I'm talking about....04:43
codebrainzXFGoldenBBL, if you want to verify, dd back the GUID partition table into a file and see if it's zeroed04:43
acerimmer_BPower: :|04:44
darko3dwell shouldnt uninstalling the program do that automatically04:44

iElijahHello, I had a question about Ubuntu's permissions, I'm running 9.04 on a server and well, the issue is when my devs who have non-sudoer SSH accounts attempt to push to a git repository, they get permission denied, I've tried tranferring ownership of the directory to a group in which all users share, but it still gives the issue, any suggestions?04:44
Wamphyrilooking for help with ATI propitary crap on ubuntu lol04:44

Wamphyriwon't let me paste it now04:44
XFGoldenBBLparted doesn't see it04:44
codebrainzXFGoldenBBL, should be, but I'm saying if you want to be sure, read it back from disk and confirm it's all zeroed out04:45

ubottumrdowntempo: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.04:46

bluefoxAndChat so did it install or no?04:56
bluefoxaptget that is04:56
scuniziAndChat: what's the bug you're encountering that won't let you install?04:56
AndChatDo to some unbelievable bug that I can't believe has existed in 3 releases let alone a *&*& LTS release is mind boggling. Dmraid hides peoples hard drives in the installer04:56
bluefoxAndChat ok you can be dramatic about it in another room, if you would like help we need to know what error you are getting04:57
AndChatMy hd literally doesn't show up. The resolution is to remove dmraid but they all assume you're on the live disc, which IMO is quite an assumption04:57
AndChatIts not an error, its abug04:57

bluefoxAndChat is ur hdd setup in bios as sata or ide?04:58
codebrainzAndChat, you can drop to a root shell during alt. install and do anything you want04:58
AndChatOmg this is annyoing to type for the third time. I appreciate the attempts to help but I've aleeady stated that apt/aptitude/dpkg aren't setup or available in the alt installer env or else I wouldn't be here05:00
AndChatBluefox, sata drives, set to show as ide compat in the bios05:00
codebrainzAndChat, what does apt/aptitute/dpkg have to do with it?  compile the binaries and copy them over, or remix the alt cd and put what you want on there05:01
bluefoxAndChat do u have any other partions on the drive that u cant get rid of?05:01

Jordan_Uhypatia: Be *absolutely* sure that isn't going to upgrade you to 10.10. It shouldn't, but --devel-release also shouldn't be needed.05:25
Zelozeloswhy is the 64bit desktop version not recommended for daily desktop usage, and whats the diff between the LTS version and the desktop version ?05:26
j800rtesla555, so can you give me a name of a package that does that job? i've searched universal menu and not found much :\05:26

blue_foxthere :) figured it out05:26
hypatiaJordan_U: says lucid all over it, but mucho thanks for the warning05:26
Jordan_Uhypatia: NVM, that is in the official instructions. That's really odd. Maybe they're only upgrading servers LTS to LTS after 10.04.1 ?05:26

codebrainzIncarnation, or "Accessories"05:35
Hilikuswhat version?05:35
j800rg073nks, obviously you can't though. if you absolutely can't get them sites running any other way, then you should dual-boot or run windows in a virtual machine05:35

codebrainzTao, you can use GParted to clone the partition and/or resize it to the new size05:41

j800rWamphyri, i don't recommend computer janitor anyway05:48
Zelozelosoh and modems ie, cable modems05:48
tesla555sebsebseb: wat was my doubt is that...i have some set of apps in 9.04...like vlc,java,octave,all installed from package manager or apt...but when i upgrade it means it has to retain old apps...instead i loose all installed apps in 9.04 when i in 9.1005:48
Wamphyrij8 well i can't run the software center either05:48
j800rto clean up obsolete packages just type sudo apt-get autoremove05:48
XFGoldenBBLZelozelos ... You can't hack a cable modem and have it work for more than a few days05:49
sebsebsebtesla555: 9.10  offers no proper advantage over 9.0405:49
j800rWamphyri, why do you need to run the software centre through terminal? :\05:49
sebsebsebtesla555: 10.04 offers little proper advantage05:49
Jordan_Uscunizi: Then you can either run apps from there, or find the value of $DISPLAY to set it (and export it) within a screen session.05:49
j800rjust select it from the menu05:49
sebsebsebtesla555: may as well stay with 9.04 for now :)05:49

Jordan_Uscunizi: No, it's harder with screen. Does "echo $DISPLAY" print anything?05:50

tim2I tried the 'alternate' version of 10.04 and that didn't work either.  I'm in China and I'm wondering if others here are having the same problem.05:55
unopWamphyri, we don't really support what you have done05:55
sebsebsebtim2: 11.04 at the end of April05:55
SteveThingGrr.. Ok, so I'm trying to setup TwinView. I have an nVidia 8800GTS and using the newest drivers from nVidia.com. I have an Asus VW246H (24") on DVI and a Xerox XR3-17Gs (17") on DVI via VGA Adapter. The Xerox is showing as a CRT. How do I fix this?05:55
Jordan_Usebsebseb: You can do an in place upgrade to btrfs :)05:55
sebsebsebJordan_U: maybe so, but I guess it will be like Ext3 to Ext4 conversion, can't gaurantee you have the proper thing05:55
j800rWamphyri,  logging in as root/superuser isn't really recommended. that's why sudo exists.05:55
resoLutionwich is the command for reconfigure the resolution on ubuntu lucid?05:55
Zelozelos只要使用此页 http://translate.google.com05:56
scuniziHow do you access ebox once installed..05:56
Wamphyriunop trying to remeber what file i need to edit in /etc to fix the grouping issue05:56
SickAnimationsYo, how can I launch a gui program on the server using SSH?05:56
Jordan_Usebsebseb: Not sure what you mean by "can't gaurantee you have the proper thing"05:56
Wamphyrij8 yeah i know05:56
sebsebsebtesla555: Newer is not always better, with Ubuntu it isn't about what is the letest, its about what is still supported :)05:56
tim2Further, 10.04 installed just fine on my netbook.05:56
Wamphyribut the first distro i ran was debian 1.305:56
unopWamphyri,  it's /etc/sudoers -- but you shouldn't edit this file directly, use the visudo command instead05:56
hagabakamabt: #ubuntu-cn05:56
sebsebsebJordan_U: as far as I know got to clean install for full Ext4 support05:56
Wamphyrithen played with slack somthing and redhat 5.205:56
n2diySickAnimations: startx?05:56
Wamphyrigot a bit of a basis05:56
SickAnimationsIs it even possible to launch a gui program on the host machine remotely over SSH?05:57
Wamphyrij8 i just forget alot of the stuff since its been a while lol05:57
sebsebsebtim2: also I think 9.04 is the best version of Ubuntu that is still supported :)05:57
Wamphyriunop thank you05:57
sebsebsebtesla555: ^05:57
scuniziSickAnimations: been trying.. the answer is yes.. but tonight I must be brain dead because I can't remember how I did it in the past..05:57
j800r!tab | Wamphyri05:57
ubottuWamphyri: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.05:57
Wamphyriunop is it sorta same thing as vipw?05:58
tim2sebsebseb: Yes, it seems so.05:58
SickAnimationsscunizi: Ah, so it's possible. Cheers :) Any suggestions on where to look for answers?05:58
sebsebsebtim2: I messaged you there by mistake, your on 9.04?05:58
unopWamphyri, well, yes, except this is for the sudoers file05:58
resoLutionplease, with what command i could reconfigure the resolution on ubuntu lucid?05:59
scuniziSickAnimations: I think it's ssh -X uname@IP Address  . . after that run a program.. but it's not working for me tonight05:59
tim2sebsebseb: Yes, after trying to upgrade to 10.04, I gave up and returned to 9.1005:59
Wamphyrinop ok the issue is tho that my username doesn't have the group sudo, the sudoers file is fine05:59
SickAnimationsscunizi: So you route the X session back to the machine itself?05:59
sebsebsebtim2: ok well then thats 9.10, not 9.0405:59
unopSickAnimations, you want to run the GUI app on the remote machine or the local machine?05:59
SickAnimationsunop: The SSH host. That is, the machine I'm SSHing into.06:00
scuniziunop: remote06:00
unopWamphyri,  ok, then   adduser your_user_name sudo06:00
SteveThingI have an nVidia 8800GTS and using the newest drivers from nVidia.com. I have an Asus VW246H (24") on DVI and a Xerox XR3-17Gs (17") on DVI via VGA Adapter. The Xerox is showing as a CRT. How do I fix this?06:00
hiexpodid someone message me06:00
tim2sebsebseb: Is there a version of 10.04 that installs like 9.01.  I don't need the wubi stuff.06:00
Jordan_Usebsebseb: The features that people care about with btrfs, snapshotting and other fun COW features, are available after conversion from ext3/4. The existing data may not be quite as efficiently placed on disk (for instance, if you're upgrading from ext3 no existing files will be using extends) but IMHO that doesn't matter much compared to the COW features that you will get.06:00
Zelozelosis the smtp server name gonna be pop3.live.com for hotmail?06:00
unopSickAnimations, set DISPLAY before running the command then.   ssh you@host 'DISPLAY=blah gui_app >/dev/null 2>&1 &'06:01
sebsebsebJordan_U: uhmm Ext does not have snapshots.  COW features?06:01
eshannonHello everyone need help with permission's on a new drive I installed. I can create folders as root but not as a normal user06:01
SickAnimationsunop: Oh, thanks. What is06:01
sebsebsebtim2: oh you been doing Wubi?06:01
scuniziunop: what is the =blah portion?  anything you want?06:01
Jordan_Usebsebseb: I'm talking about the conversion from ext3/4 to btrfs.06:02
SickAnimationsunop: What is "blah" ? and what is 2>&1 & - if you have time...06:02
sebsebsebtim2: Wubi is ok for short term trying, when it works, but in the long run proper partitioned install is better :)06:02
adahendrahow add backtrack 4 men on Ubuntu 10.04?06:02
hypatiathe only real downside to wubi i've seen is a mild disk performance hit06:03
tesla555wow mac4lin looks good in desktop06:03
sebsebsebJordan_U: yeah I didn't know what you meant by COW, (Moo Moo)06:03
hypatiai ran it for 2 year on my work machien :)06:03
unopscunizi, SickAnimations.  well, the default is :0.0 ... but you can find out with    ps ef | grep -io DISPLAY=.... | sort -u06:03
tim2sebsebseb: The wubi stuff came with 10.04.  I haven't found 10.04 without it.06:03
tesla555cairo-dock is aswsome06:03
hiexpo!backtrack | adahendra06:03
ubottuadahendra: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)06:03
sebsebsebtim2: How did you instal 10.04?06:03
SquirrelPantsHey y'all. I'm having some trouble installng Ubuntu. I'm assuming this is the place to go?06:03
SquirrelPantsFor help, I mean. >_>06:03
SickAnimationsunop: Thanks very much :) I appreciate the help.06:03
unopSickAnimations, the redirection and backgrounding part ( >/dev/null 2>&1 &) is needed to stop ssh from hanging until the app is finished running,06:03
Jordan_Usebsebseb: Btrfs is a copy on write filesystem, which means that you can do things like "cp --reflink somebigfile somenewcopy" and somenewcopy will use the same data blocks as somebigfile, but unlike with hardlinks you can modify somenewcopy without changing somebigfile. Only differences are written.06:04
j800r!anyone | SquirrelPants06:04
ubottuSquirrelPants: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?06:04
SickAnimationsunop: I see. Thanks again :)06:04
sebsebsebtim2: Ubuntu can be installed inside WIndows using Wubi, or the Live CD can be booted and a proper partitioned install can be made :)  plus there are other ways it can be installed06:04
Jordan_Usebsebseb: It's also what allows instant, writeable snapshots.06:04
j800rask away SquirrelPants. someone will try and help you if they can06:04
hiexpoadahendra,  and adding the backtrack repos to ubuntu is not a good i dea all it does is corrupt it06:05
sebsebsebJordan_U: ah right ok, yeah I don't know much about it at the moment,  but yeah full system restore snapshots do sound rather nice06:05
Wamphyriunop can you edit the group file directly?06:05
SquirrelPantsAlright. I got the Ubuntu 10.04 ISO extracted onto a CD and all that, and it is in my computer. It got to a loading screen, and it appeared to be working up until06:05
SquirrelPants...it appeared to be working up until it opened up a terminal sort of deal.06:05
adahendra@hiexpo ; ok ,06:05
sebsebsebJordan_U: yeah and its meant to be the alternative to ZFS or whatever as well06:05
j800rSquirrelPants, er... you EXTRACTED the ISO? o.006:06
SquirrelPantsnot extracted.06:06
ShapeShifter499I just installed an ubuntu server and I'm wondering, was it good to install into an Encrypted LVM partition?06:06
unopWamphyri, no, not a good idea - if you fumble and make a mistake, you risk locking yourself (and other users) out of the system06:06
j800rall you need to do is burn it as an image onto disc06:06
SquirrelPantsI mean I got it onto a CD.06:06
SquirrelPantsThat's what I meant. Just...said it weird. >_>06:06
tesla555SquirrelPants: burn06:06
tim2sebsebseb: I tried to do the live CD but it wouldn't work.  It stopped after the little dots finished lighting.  So I was obliged to use wubi.06:06
j800rok, and it just loaded into a terminal?06:06
sebsebsebtim2: oh06:07
unopWamphyri,  use vipw to edit the group file -- or better use one of the many user and group management tools.   things like useradd, usermod, userdel, etc06:07
scuniziunop: when I run that command I only get a > prompt06:07
sebsebsebtim2: a bad burn possibily06:07
sebsebsebtim2: or ISO06:07
unopscunizi, which command?06:07
Wamphyriunop thank you :)06:07
sebsebseb!md5sum > tim206:07
ubottutim2, please see my private message06:07
h0rnmancan anyone tell me if there is an event in Upstart that I can trap to ensure that a CIFS unmount script runs before any sort of network down scenario when I shut down or reboot?  I understand that this is not a strictly Ubuntu related question, but I am not getting any traction in #upstart06:07
tim2sebsebseb: yes, perhaps.06:07
thebishophas flash been crashing like crazy for anyone else since the 64-bit version was scrapped?06:07
Jordan_Utim2: You could try the alternate install CD, it will almost always successfully install... the only problems is that whatever bug is preventing the liveCD from booting might prevent the installed system from booting as well.06:07
sebsebsebtim2: right and what happended to the 10.04 Wubi?06:08

tesla555why doesnt a live cd have root passwd06:08

cheositehow to use proxy in ubuntu 10.04 ?06:08
sebsebseb!root | tesla55506:08
ubottutesla555: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo06:08
tesla555jsut doin sudo--i06:08
j800rSquirrelPants, you could try burning again. the burn may not have been fully successful, or try downloading again in case the ISO itself is corrupt. otherwise i'm not sure why it wouldn't boot at all for you. maybe a hardware thing :\06:08
SquirrelPantsso basically the problem I am having is that it is not installing correctly. Instead of going to the regular install and asking for your language and whatnot, it is sending me to a terminal and I have no idea how to fix it.06:09
unopscunizi, so, you're saying the command ran on the remote machine but nothing happened?06:09
j800rsebsebseb, that ubottu response is hilarious. almost a direct Matrix quote :P06:09
scuniziunop: yep06:09
sebsebsebtim2: ah well 9.10 is better than 10.04 in certain ways :)06:09
unopscunizi, are you sure you got the right value for DISPLAY ?06:09
SquirrelPantsI suppose I will try that, j800r. If the problem isn't the burn then I have no idea what to do.06:09
sebsebsebj800r: Is it?06:10
SquirrelPantsThanks for the help, I suppose.06:10
scuniziunop: I used the other command .. I used 0.0 .. or should it have been 0:0?06:10
tesla5559.04 >10.0406:10
unopscunizi, DISPLAY=:0.006:10
sebsebsebtesla555: yes 9.04 better than 10.04 really :)06:10
RoastedCan you set up Apache so when a user goes to the web address it requires the user to log in prior to seeing what's available for downloading off of the apache web server?06:10
Jordan_Uunop: If you used ":0.0" then it ran on the display connected to the server directly.06:10
scuniziunop: yep .. that's what I used06:10
Jordan_Uscunizi: ^^06:10
SwedeMikeRoasted: yes. look into .htaccess.06:10
DaijoubuIs there a way to install Ubuntu like Fedora where you can click Encrypt System and then enter Key for encryption?06:10
tim2Jordan_U: I tried the alternate version also.  I took forever and then failed.06:10
unopJordan_U, that's the idea.06:10
scuniziJordan_U: unop ah..06:11
SwedeMikeRoasted: I'm sure it's covered extensively in the apache faq:s06:11
RoastedSwedeMike, thanks06:11
unopscunizi, ?06:11
sebsebsebtim2: 9.10 for now then,   uhmm you can probably then upgrade through 10.04, after the final release of 10.1006:11
scuniziunop: just responding to what Jordan_U said above.. to you06:11
sebsebsebtim2: or do a clean install of 10.10 of course,  but yeah thats the future,  quite a while yet06:12
piyushmishrahi how to make the SSL certificate and use it with apache?06:12
unopscunizi, let's see the command you tried.06:12
piyushmishracan anyone guide me on that?06:12
sebsebsebtim2: however 9.04 does run out of support at the end of October, and then your meant to be running something later06:12
SwedeMikepiyushmishra: check out the apache website faq:s, it should be in ther.06:12
sebsebsebtim2:  uh nevermind, you said 9.10, you got untill the end of April next year06:12
scuniziunop: ssh -X mark@ 'DISPLAY=0:1 firefox >/dev/null 2>&1 &'06:12
tim2sebsebseb: Thanks for the message.  I'll try the checksum verification.  Anyway, I'm happy with 9.10.06:12
SteveThingCan someone help me setup my xorg.conf file to manually configure my secondary LCD monitor?06:13
Jordan_Uscunizi: I assumed that you wanted the window to appear on the machine that you are sshing from, rather than on the display connected to the server directly. Is that correct?06:13
scuniziunop: also with 0.0 and 0:006:13
scuniziJordan_U: yes06:13
unopscunizi, that's an invalid value for DISPLAY .. and you don't need -X here as you're not forwarding X to the localmachine06:13
DaijoubuIs there a way to install Ubuntu like Fedora where you can click Encrypt System and then enter Key for encryption?06:13
Jordan_Uscunizi: I think that the problem is that your server has X forewarding disabled for some reason.06:14
unopscunizi,   :0.0  not 0.0 or 0:006:14
unopJordan_U, he's not trying to forward X, rather run an X app on the remote machine.06:14
scuniziunop: Jordan_U ok.. I'll have to tackle this again tomorrow sometime.. I've gotta hit the hay as they say.. Thank you both for the input06:15
Jordan_Uunop: Read his response to my last question :)06:15
unopJordan_U, well, that's not what he was trying to help the OP with -- the OP's requirement was to get it to run on the remote machine06:15
tesla555sebsebseb: i downlaoded and installed  virtualbox-3.2_3.2.4-62467~Ubuntu~jaunty_i386.deb and double click n installed...i dont ficd virtaul box in the menu after install06:16
tesla555ya got it06:17
scuniziunop: Jordan_U Isn't the machine I'm ssh-ing from the remote machine to the one I'm connecting to?06:17
ActionParsnipYo yo yo06:17
sebsebsebtesla555: if programs don't add them selves to menu after install, you can re install or log out and back in again to the account, and they will probably be there, well unless of course they are command line apps for example06:18
ActionParsnipTesla555: add an entry to run Virtualbox (the capital V is important). Should be ok06:18
unopscunizi,  use the terms local and remote - they better indicate which machine you mean.  local is the one you run the ssh command on, remote is the machine you connect to06:18

pc600that one appears to b ethe correct verison.06:27

pc600ActionParsnip - Is there a releaseinfo file somewhere?06:27
ActionParsnipPc600: lsb_release -c06:27
pc600ActionParsnip - jaunty06:27
SteveThingActionParsnip, thanx for your time none-the-less06:27
ActionParsnipPc600: then you will need a jauny ppa with the verison you want (see ubottu's link) or upgrade to karmic from jaunty06:28
ActionParsnipStevething: seems weird, thought it'd just be a case of res/refresh and bam, done06:29
pc600ActionParsnip - yeah, jauny has old verison it seems:  https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/jaunty/i386/xl2tpd/1.2.0+dfsg-1ubuntu106:29
SteveThingActionParsnip, seems to be the general concensus06:29
ActionParsnipPc600: the ppa link ubottu gave will let you search the ppas. Somebody may have compiled your version for jaunty ;). See what you can find06:30

nick_my RAID struggle continues ...06:40
jmartinwhats the issue06:40
jmartini had a raid issue today. fixed it06:40
nick_installed ubuntu server 10.406:40
nick_on RAID006:40
nick_have non-raid boot partition06:41
nick_and now I managed to boot into grub06:41
nick_but it doesn't show mennu06:41
nick_just the cmd line06:41
nick_not sure what to do from there06:41
jmartindefine: doesnt show menu.06:42
nick_tried running the linux cmd from the grub config manually06:42
Sam_FisherHowdy Ya'll06:42
jmartindo you mean grub goes thru cli06:42
nick_but did nothing06:42
nick_well, grub boots and I have a prompt06:43
nick_no menu to choose from06:43
Sam_FisherUnder Sound preferences I have nothing listed under hardware and no sound either. Laptop. Was messing with USB Dongle and Skype headset.06:43
jmartinmenu? do you mean no kernel options, nick?06:43
nick_it doesn't go through really06:43
nick_see, there is grub.cnf which has options in it, but grub is not displaying a menu when ot boots06:44
nick_I reinstalled it from a live cd so maybe this broke it06:44
prestoncquick question, I have a need to install ubuntu as a LAMP server under VMWare. How much smaller is the memory footprint of the server version? I'm deciding between buying another 2GB for the Macbook or just installing Server.06:44
jmartinis there any other OS on the drive nick?06:45
nick_clean install06:45
jmartinon 10.04, grub should  auto-select the newest kernel. i suspect the .iso you used is currupt06:46
Guest26790does ubuntu need firewall06:46
jmartini had the same issue last month on a trixbox iso06:46
nick_I doubt06:46
Sam_FisherGuest26790, yes06:46
nick_I don't get a grub menu06:47
jmartinthat or maybe a drive issue.06:47
nick_and then the other problem is, I read that I need mdadm to boot from RAID006:47
Sam_FisherI lost my sound settings. No harware listed06:47
prestoncanyone have a take on my question?06:47
nick_and I doubt that the installer installed this properly06:47
nick_or rather, at all06:47
jmartinmdadm is an option. apt-get install mdadm06:47
Guest26790Sam_Fisher, y06:48
grumblyhey all... How can I tell/discover if my computer uses an EFI or is compatible with it?  Forgive the newbieness of this06:48
nick_another question - when installing from the ubuntu server cd, it required internet connection and went through 10 hours of downloading before the install completed06:48
jmartinthats not right06:48
SteveThingWell, I'm getting really annoyed with linux again. I enjoy the concept of open-source but, man is it a PITA to setup for a newbie. I hate to say it, but Microcult did a good job for the most part.06:48
nick_is there a way to do no-internet install06:48
Jordan_Ugrumbly: If it's not a mac then even if it is EFI compatible, you probably don't want to use EFI.06:48
nick_this way I can try reinstall few times without spending weeks06:49
grumblyJordan_U: why is that?  and no, it's an Asus k5006:49
nick_so what I did wrong then06:49
jmartini did a 10.04 SE on a pre-blade server in 45 minutes. duel xeon06:49
nick_I just booted from a flash and proceeded with the installed - it asked me for a CD, network etc, I selected that I do not have a CD and it detected the network etc06:49
jmartinno cd-rom?06:50
jmartinon the server?06:50
jmartinwhat kind of server is this?06:50
Guest26790does ubuntu need firewall06:50
WamphyriGuest26790: do you have a router?06:51
nick_just a normal intel based custom build06:51
Jordan_Ugrumbly: EFI implementations tend to be more buggy than BIOS implementations, and EFI doesn't really present many advantages over BIOS. Also, most FOSS developers that have to work with EFI dislike it.06:51

Once that is done, restart X-Server via sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart, then login again. Once you are logged in, configure the second monitor as TwinView and restart X-Server again!07:11

macoericthehax: its not unchangeable. you can turn off pulseaudio autospawn and add yourself to the audio group. streams might stop being mixed since thats kinda the point of having pulseaudio but hey, if you dont WANT the feature of being able to have a flash video open and hear notification sounds from pidgin, thats fine...08:17
tripelbwhat makes it die?08:17
crazy2kTANK: Sorry, thought you were answering my question.08:17
TANKcrazy2k oh lol08:18
tripelbtank what happens when you launch it? (is there anything else running that competes?)08:18
=== smith is now known as smithh
nuboon2age_tarek: so what happened when you did that?08:18
ericthehaxmaco: nothing seems to support pulse so..... meh.08:18
TANKtripelb it launches, i might be able to load a page, then ill load another, then any open browser window, be it firefox or chromium will crash08:18
smithhis there any web based internal chat server in ubuntu08:18
mneptokTANK: do the browsers die without being asked to load Flash content? or do they die when Flash is encountered?08:18
boumagreeezmunkey; tyhe internet is the backup (like real men), and as it was on ntfs , and rsyned in linux then had the partition resised to 38gig and win7 installed over it.. i might just say good bye08:18
tareknuboon2age, wise_crypt, it might have fixed something, can you please guys suggest a package to install?08:19
TANKthe browsers also die when i attempt to access any preferences08:19
Sc00t3rYo~. Sc00t3r is back.08:19
tareknuboon2age, it killed the process i believe08:19
macoericthehax: you have a funny definition of "nothing"!  so there's something in particular that doesnt support it and it happens to be something you need i guess. what is it? audacity? thats a common one... i know phonon supports it nowadays even (well it supported it for a long while, but now it supports it *well*)08:19
tripelbTank, as a first step you might disable all add-ons.08:19
TANKhow, crashes if I try08:19
smithhcan anyone tell me that is there any web based internal chat server in ubuntu08:19
Sc00t3rtribpelb, I think he means he can't access -any- preference in the browser.08:20
mneptokTANK: try this command in a terminal "mv ~/.mozilla ~/.mozilla-orig" (no quotes) and then launch Firefox and see what happens08:20
nuboon2age_tarek: well to get mysql you just need to stop the mysql that's running and THEN run the command that wise_crypt gave you.08:20
tripelbtank tank kill the preferences file completely. Not while the program is running. I had that.08:20
Sc00t3rTANK, have you tried installing Chromium browser? It's apparently a bit more stable than FireFox..08:20
tripelbtank I dont know where it is offhand.08:20
TANKsc00t3r, running both, both having same issue08:20
TANKi believe its a problem with flash08:20
Sc00t3rTANK, That's odd. They just crash when you try to access a prefernece?08:21
TANKor load a page08:21
tareknuboon2age, i think mysql finally installed correctly08:21
spacemanTANK: try firefox -safe-mode in terminal08:21
tripelbtank I think you might want to reinstall flash after you kill preferences.08:21
TANKive tried apt-get purge on em and re installed them, it just dont work08:21
greezmunkeybouma: yeah, that's a tough one. Sorry to hear it. There is a utility that can help recover deleted files, but it has to be running before the files are deleted to work - won't help you now. Google on 'get it I say file recovery'08:21
tareknuboon2age, i think mysql finally installed correctly without the other commands08:21
nuboon2age_tarek: output?08:21
tripelbtank I heard you about remove and reinstall. That's interesting.08:22
macoericthehax: a good command to know about for the few apps that remain incompatible with pulse is "pasuspender"08:22

_jesse_a5h15h: I get those too, I think it's an open bug, doesn't stop you from using it though08:22
tripelbtank, will ff run without flash?08:22
nuboon2age_tarek: could you pastebin the output again?08:22
Sc00t3rtripelb, FireFox comes without Flash, so yes.08:23
tareknuboon2age, because i just installed another program and everything went flawlessss no errooorrr08:23
ericthehax... i see not what pasuspender does, but the name implies it suspends pulseaudio08:23

Sc00t3rericthehax, By the name, I would guess it suspends Pulseaudio?08:24

unopaTurtle, shortcuts ?09:41
unopor whatever it is gnome uses09:41
aTurtleunop: Yes. I tried ln -s but that does not have the same effect as whatever Gnome had offered natively.09:42
unopaTurtle, so why not use what gnome offers natively?09:42
ctmnzhello all09:43
ctmnzWhy ubuntu 64 bits is not recommended for daily usage ?09:44
aTurtleunop: Because I can't find it. Or I have been looking in wrong places.09:44
aTurtlectmnz: That's just a poor recommendation on the website and the description phrase need to be changed immediately.09:44
gothenburgGood morning09:45
gothenburgaTurtle: ^^09:45
unopaTurtle, if i remember right, right click on the desktop, "create launcher" ... your launcher will be something like 'nautilus ~' (for the homedir) and 'nautilus ~/.local/share/Trash' (for Trash)09:46

aTurtleunop: That would work too, but what about the icon? Clearly this is a working method but it's not same. I'm trying to toggle back on "My Computer, chris's home, and Trash" -- If I found out how, I'll tell you.09:48
gothenburgash2dust: IRC is the protocoll09:48
unopaTurtle, you can customize the icon too - it's somewhere in the launcher's properties09:49
gothenburga5h15h: you should use synaptic (the program installer) to do this09:49
a5h15hgothenburg, I said sorry..09:49
aTurtlepedronveloso: The fast way is to reset your panels, I guess.  You can right-click and add indicator-something to the panel.09:49

ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)09:51
unopaTurtle,  edit these gconf keys then  /apps/nautilus/desktop/home_icon_visible  and  /apps/nautilus/desktop/trash_icon_visible09:51
gothenburga5h15h: because it is much faster to write it in the terminal than click on 200 checkboxes09:51
a5h15hgothenburg, then how does one do it with the terminal?09:51
unopaTurtle, I don't have a DE - I use fluxbox as the window manager and a few bits from gnome and a few from kde09:51
gothenburga5h15h: to update the database write: sudo aptitude update09:52
MrWisehow do I launch openbox? running an ubuntu server install, I've installed xorg and openbox09:52
Xgatesanyone mess with ufw? I'm trying to change the user.rules for the logging as -j LOG to -j ULOG to log to a different file but when I do that ufw won't start09:52

SandGorgonravibn, ahh.. then your machine is not 64-bit. you need to install the 32-bit version10:19

pikoHello all, I am using ubuntu 10.04 and I noticed important slow down in gnome/metacity - it takes me quite a long time (sometimes more than 10 seconds to switch the workspaces, sometimes it is okay). Despite that swap is on zero (but present), CPU is less than 10%. Are there any performance problems with current ubuntu?10:24
kelvinellawhy some distro make img file that is 754MB??10:24
SandGorgonravibn, for booting as a virtual machine, my advice is to use Virtualbox for windows rather than Virtual PC - you need to enable EM64 extensions in your virtual PC otherwise. as an aside, what was the error you got when you tried it on your laptop itself ?10:24
kelvinellahow do u suppose to find a CD that can burn 754MB?10:24
unopkelvinella, some CD-ROMs allow for a few meg extra10:24
kelvinellathe largest i have is 733MB10:24
kelvinellai tries overburn setting but fail10:24

llutzkelvinella: burn it to dvd10:26
ravibnSandGorgon : this machine went died after a while. Can you tell me the difference betwn x86-64 and i686 cpu ?10:26
gothenburgYou are an idiot!10:27
ravibnSandGorgon : Ok! I will try the virtualbox also10:27
SandGorgonravibn, x86-64 is 64-bit and i686 is 32-bit - your i7 is a 64-bit system10:27
Buchiravibn -> have you tried wikipedia? :)10:28
SandGorgonravibn, another bit of suggestion is to use Ubuntu 64-bit 9.10 install CD - I have had issues with 10.04 where I had to disable A: (floppy device) in bios before it could boot10:28

erUSULSCD: ok :)10:49
pikopip, I dod not follow the whole chat, but what should be usually sufficient for linux distro is 1) to build a swap partition by mkswap, 2) set it in /etc/fstab, 3) label partition by fdisk as linux partition10:49
StaRetjiit is pretty annoying, I have small screen I really need to hide or remove top panel10:49
erUSULSCD: you tried installing ndiswrapper ?10:50
SCDAs far as I know it is installed erUSUL10:50
SCDI have the Windows Wireless Drivers gui thing10:50
SCDWhich doesn't work with the windows drivers for the card10:50
erUSULSCD: well; libertas is the linux driver for that card (no ndis) so if you've gone the ndis route you wont be using.10:52
pippiko,  I just want to share the swap partition with another linux distribution10:52
SCDSo how do I fix it erUSUL? :/10:53
erUSULSCD: for ndis you need the windows *.inf file10:53
unoppip, are you starved of disk space or something?10:53
pipunop, yes10:53
pipI only have 30G of disk10:53
SCDIt's what I've used erUSUL and it says "Cannot see if hardware is present"10:53
unoppip, my guess is to change the swap entry from /etc/fstab -- so boot up in "recovery mode", do a ''swapoff -a'', then dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/your_swap_device   and then create the swap entry in /etc/fstab10:56
unoppip, but i suspect this could bork something10:56
StaRetjilol, is it me and my weird ubuntu problems, but whenever I come here for help nobody knows what to do :P10:56
* StaRetji facepalms10:57
pipunop, sounds so ...... frustrating10:57
erUSULSCD: do not have expereince with ndiswrapper... maybe oficial docs ?10:58
unoppip, it's worth a try .. just make a backup of your /etc/fstab before going ahead with this10:58

unopa5h15h, http://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/patches/7.2/7.2.257 contains the patch, strip out the cruft and save the patch somewhere.  make a temporary directory in which you get the source for vim with '' apt-get source vim-gnome '' .. apply the patch with ''patch < /path/to/this.patch'' .. if that succeeds, issue ''apt-get build vim-gnome'' and then install the .deb files created with '' sudo dpkg -i *.deb''11:09

unopa5h15h, these "errors" are not fatal, are they?11:14
unopa5h15h, this seems fixed in version 2:7.2.330-1ubuntu1 (lucid) -- so it's probably easier if you just backport vim for karmic11:16

SolomonKanemartez89: you'd need to hack the source and recompile, I would assume.11:18
bazhangSlyboots, then edit the /etc/apt/sources.list11:18
SolomonKanemartez89: you can try using ctrl+shift+b to hide the bookmarks, and do the same to make them return.  Why display them when you dont need them?11:19
thune3Slyboots: or remove files from /etc/apt/sources.list.d/11:19
SlybootsI dont see it though, thats the problem11:19
bazhangSlyboots, once that is edited, then sudo apt-get update; you can edit by commenting out the repos with a # in front of the ones you wish out11:20
SlybootsI added teh ppa for ebox.. I cant see it in apt/sources11:20

thune3tmas: i don't know the fix the problem in the installer problem. but, you could try formating your partitions from gparted in livecd ahead of time, and then installing to existing partitions . (i'm sure there is a better answer though)12:03
unopahox,  perl -mFile::Spec -e 'print File::Spec->abs2rel( +shift )'  /path/to/your/file   # prints it relative to $PWD12:03

bullgard4thune3: I'd like to find out what softlink(s) point to /lib/init/upstart-job.12:33
seb_thune3: i just was wondering if you know any program that can help you clean your computer up of all the stuff you don't need12:34
solowDoes anyone in hear know why ubuntu sucks at flash, and how i can fix this... it's driving me insane12:34
sidneyseb_: try administration computer janitor12:35
geirhasolow: Not much ubuntu can do about that. It's adobe you need to complain to.12:35
aTurtleGood riddances to Adobe Flash once HTML5 rolls in... just about everywhere.12:36
solowgeirha,  I don't really care who's to blame. I want to know why it sucks, and how to fix it.12:36
seb_sidney: its asking me to remove linux-image-2.6.31-22-generic?? do you know what is sounds important?12:36

Guest14936If you got 2.6.31-23 its fine12:37
simarDo anybody know that what is /dev/psaux ???12:37
simaractually i'm triaging a bug ..12:37
Dr_Willissimar:  a ps2 mouse/keyboard12:37
Dr_Williskrazykrivda:  depends on what filesystem it is12:37
sidneyseb_:  not sure about that I just ran it a few times with no problem but be sure before hand12:38
geirhasolow: It's closed source, so only adobe can fix it.12:38
krazykrivdaDr_Willis: it is a vfat filesystem12:38
simarDr_Willis, thnaks for the information.12:38
ubottuTo view your Windows/Mac partitions see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AutomaticallyMountPartitions - For write access, see !NTFS-3g or !FUSE12:38
krazykrivdaI've used it in th epast.. but i had to resetup ubuntu and I know longer remmebr how I did it12:38
Dr_Williskrazykrivda:  install/run ntfs-config. or manually alter the fstab with the proper options12:39
ohirsolow: its bad Adobe coding and long known bug. One of the reasons Apple banned Adobe flash from their products.12:39
Dr_Willisset the uid/gid is one way  to get write access12:39
krazykrivdaDr_Willis: yeah.. I'm trying to figure out what the proper options are12:39
Dr_Williskrazykrivda:  check the ntfs-3g docs -  its basically the same options12:40
krazykrivdaDr_Willis: ok reading now thank you12:40
ohirsolow: actually AFAIR its called a feature, to let you have chance to at least listen to whole commercial12:41

QUestionHello!! I have an ATI Radeon mobility X1600 and I use the open source drivers which are working fine. However, when I try to connect my TV with the VGA the image on the TV set is shaking. Does anyone know how to fix that. There is a possible problem with the PAL NTSC thing.12:45

xshyamxif I put an echo statement in rc.local which logfile will contain the echoed statement?12:46
Guest14936xshy, yes, I guess12:47
* bleah sal all12:47
xshyamxGuest14936,  I cannot see it in /var/log/syslog? is it someplace else?12:48

aTurtlexshyamx: $ echo 'You shake, I shake, We all shake for ice cream!' > /var/log/shake.log12:48
Guest14936It should be there if it logged anything12:49
solowrofl. yeah, but a lot of stuff is still flash based. So I think i'll just head back to windows for now :p12:49
xshyamxaah yes..thats a much simpler solution aTurtle...thx :)12:49
aTurtlexshyamx: Indeed. &_&12:49
xshyamxbut, just out of curiosity any idea where those echoes will be logged?12:50
=== wieshka_ is now known as wieshka
aTurtlexshyamx: I'm guessing it won't be logged. echo - display a line of text. Scripts + packages generally have a log to output their echoes to.12:51
aTurtlexshyamx: I think you might see echoes (if you placed them) if you go in TTY1.12:52
