jamil_1 Hi, When I try to do apt-get update in terminal i get a 403 forbidden. I am behind a proxy and I have set the http_proxy variable. Synaptic runs fine.00:03
Loshkijamil_1: can you pastebin the output and send us the url?00:06
esjquestion on file sharing. I would like to be able to mount a directory from remote machine into a share on my Windows box. Yes, I know what Samba. What I'm looking for something with a much lower overhead for setup that I can do from user space for when I need this kind of service for only a few days00:06
Matiresj: does it need to be mounted as a share?  otherwise you could use sftp for file transfers00:07
jamil_1Loshki: here it is: http://pastebin.org/33676800:08
thune3jamil_1:  apt-get -s -o Acquire::http::Proxy="http://proxy.server.here" update ; if that works there is a way to make this permanent00:08
esjit would be best if it was a share. The problem with the data into places is synchronization00:08
stathisany ideas about the microphone problem?00:08
thune3jamil_1: forget the -s00:08
esj I've used unison to try and keep directory synchronized but, it's error prone. I frequently forget and change the same files on both sides00:09
TvmbleQuestion: I'm trying to put my current Hardy installation (on HDD 1, we'll call it) into a blank ext3 partition on another harddrive (call it HDD 2). How do I best go about this?00:09
=== no-name is now known as Guest39897
Loshkiesj: well, Samba *is* the method of choice for sharing filesystems with windows machines. Can we help you get it working?00:09
TvmbleI've read up on backing up and restoring my system, but I'm not sure if I need to install Ubuntu again on teh empty ext3 partition.00:10
=== gr0gg0_ is now known as gr0gg0
esjSamba is way too much overhead especially if I'm going to throw the configuration away after three or four days00:10
Loshkijamil_1: looks like it's ignoring the proxy settings. Are you sure it's set. What does echo $http_proxy say in the window you're running apt-get from?00:10
esjit's great for semipermanent slouch long-term setups but, for transient "get into the machine, fix some bugs, send the invoice" type of work it's not so good00:11
DJ_HaMsTahalp! how can i exit out of full screen in virtualbox ?00:11
esjalso, I don't always on the machine so I can't install it or configure it hence the user space part of the request00:11
esjI was thinking about something like webdav might be one possibility00:11
Loshkiesj: suppose we could give you a 20 line samba config? Would that do it?00:11
magicianlordwel, the module worked on ubuntu, but not on debian00:12
jamil_1Loshki: it prints the http_proxy variable's value. I thinks it is set properly because if I do wget google.com, I do get the page.00:12
esjit would work for cases where I own machine and have. It won't work on various web hosting sites00:12
esjyou know, that would be a really good tool so yeah, I would like it if you're willing to share00:12
jorechpany people have trouble with tty console out of frecuency with ubuntu 10.0400:12
dodyany help on the boot problem i having00:13
Loshkijamil_1: then I can't explain why it works for synaptic and not for apt-get. Did you try thune3's suggestion?00:13
ubottuA large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?00:13
DJ_HaMsTawhats a host key ?00:14
DJ_HaMsTais that the windows key ?00:14
Loshkiesj: my samba config is here: http://pastebin.org/336777. You'll need to make appropriate edits of course, and heed the comment on the first line00:15

X-Sleepy-XHow do I start an application like totem and make it play an mp3 file on the host when I am connected trough SSH?00:15

wieshkaX-Sleepy-X: try to add before command DISPLAY=":0.0"00:16
setzSo I just installed 10.04 64-bit, desktop edition00:16
X-Sleepy-Xwieshka: ok thanks00:16
LoshkiDJ_HaMsTa: er, it's an ssh key which uniquely identifies a host, so you can tell if someone tries to impersonate the host or if it gets replaced. At least, that's one definition. Does it fit?00:16
setzand on the first boot (and subsequent boots), I'm getting grub error 1500:17
hiexpo!ask | setz00:17

LoshkiX-Sleepy-X: er, you know you can't get remote sound via ssh, right?00:18

DJ_HaMsTaLoshki, im trying to exit out of virtualbox but i cant seem to find the host key00:19
setzwill do. Does grub2 have any distinct advantages over grub?00:19
sebsebsebsetz: no00:20
wieshkaLoshki: why - you can restream sound with VLC over SSH tunnel :)00:20
LoshkiX-Sleepy-X: ok, that should work. For quick cli playback, I use mplayer mp3file...00:20
Loshkiwieshka: you can? I had no idea...00:20
sebsebsebsetz: Grub ok, Grub 2 :(00:20
Loshkihiexpo: hi there00:20
wieshkaX-Sleepy-X:  yeah - mplayer will be better for cli than totem00:20
X-Sleepy-Xok thanks00:20
wieshkaLoshki: there are many things what you can do with vlc :)00:21
wieshkaX-Sleepy-X: for advanced you can enable VLM interface for VLC and use webpage to control your player remotly :)00:21
Loshkiwieshka: I only use if for dvds. Otherwise I use mplayer. Is there some special tweak you need to restream sound over vlc?00:21
wieshkaLoshki: just listening and streaming interface00:22
albinssonHi every one,00:22

wieshkato start it with gdm00:27
Tvmblegdw2: command, not comment*00:27
magicianlordalso, after i installed a command line system 10.04  and then xorg and openbox, i have no opengl acceleration with intel. should i reinstall the drivers? it worked in a gnome install00:27
wieshkabrrr openbox is a dekstop manager ?00:27
magicianlordwindow manager. plus some other stuff00:27
MonotokoTvmble, you could use dd00:27
magicianlordit is the best00:27
dlimagicianlord, glxinfo|head00:27
MonotokoTvmble, it will copy the contents of the HDD byte-for-byte00:28
magicianlordok dli . what does that do?00:28
wieshkamagicianlord: i prefer MAC OS X for grafic interface :)00:28
TvmbleMonotoko: Will it work to move from a full HD to a formatted partition on another HD?00:28
gdw2Tvmble: I think you're filesystems would ahve to be the same00:28
gdw2Tvmble: And you'd ahve to have the same MBR00:28
dliTvmble, if you want to back a partition, try partimg00:29
checkhello guys. sorry for posting my question again but I had a disconnection. I have a problem with my microphone. It seems that it is not working. Any ideas of how I can fix that will be appreciated :)00:29
MonotokoTvmble, it will copy the exact harddrive, you can shrink the partition etc when you get it all on the new harddrive00:29
HotTunacheck, run alsamixer from terminal and look for anything without 00 in the bottom00:29
wieshkacheck: check out alsamixer for begin00:29
dlicheck, if your microphone is plugged in properly(correct socket), try alsamixer00:30

dliTvmble, no need for dd, better to do it manually, mount the partition: rsync -axvHA /* /path/to/dest00:31
HotTunacheck, when ur done hit esc to exit alsa mixer00:31
dliTvmble, you will have to modify the /etc/fstab afterwards, though00:31
dliTvmble, and install grub on the new hdd00:32
magicianlordwhat's better: gnome-terminal or lxterminal? network manager or wicd?00:32
HotTunaTvmble, use sudo grub-install /dev/device00:32
dlimagicianlord, lxde + wicd00:32
magicianlorddats what i though00:33

MacGyver_This might be a bit of a weird question, but... I'm doing some research and for that I need Python 2.2 on Ubuntu 10.04. I'm going to assume there's no package for that anymore.

HotTunahiexpo, where do I get the source from and what .patch file is correct?01:07
macocheck: i used to live with ubuntu's audio guy. he taught me how to debug some of this, and i know for sure that finding the right quirk is what'll fix that on mine01:07
sebsebsebgz0: 9.04 is a great release, and you got until end of October with security updates01:07

hiexpoHotTuna,  - http://www.aircrack-ng.org/doku.php?id=broadcom01:09
ChogyDangz0: not really, it was just my experience that flash was terrible on 9.10.  I used a different kernel for a bit, but upgrading to lucid made most of what I did moot.01:09
checkmaco: Can you please take a look too? http://pastebin.com/NPKwjbu001:09
gz0sebsebseb: Its a fantastic release yes, but this flash issue slows down my entire system, so its making me say ew...01:09
sebsebsebgz0: well 9.04 is a great release, accept a little something I didn't like about it, but heres the link:  http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/06/fixing-fullscreen-flash-in-ubuntu-1004.html01:09
sebsebsebgz0: so yeah that might work in 9.04 as well01:10
gz0ChogyDan: I was thinking of upgrading... but whenever i do all my stuff breaks hehe i spend more time fixing other things then being happy heh01:10
Monotokosebsebseb...i didnt like 9.04...my laptop hated it..nothing worked01:10
HotTunacheck, do you have a volume icon in your top right corner01:10

macoFalcon31: that sudo one means something's wrong on the permissions on /usr/bin/udo01:10

MonotokoFalcon31, try using gksudo01:11
hiexpoomg -\ check01:11
Monotokothats what the software center uses01:11
sebsebsebgz0: also I love Firefox, but if you got Flash issues in Ubuntu, other browsers such as Epiphany or Galeon, will probably work better with it01:11
Monotokojust noticed you said you can install from there...01:11
Jordan_UMonotoko: Actually, Software Center uses Policy Kit01:11

HotTunacheck, select output + stereo analog input01:12
Jordan_UMonotoko: Software Center never did, but Add/Remove did (and synaptic and update-manager still do)01:12
thune3KnifeySpooney: prepend nohup01:12
HotTunacheck, go to input tab and put check in the internal stereo input01:13
thune3KnifeySpooney: or use ampersand afterward (sometimes fails)01:13
MonotokoJordan_U, ahha thanks...methinks my knowledge is slightly out of date01:13
HotTunacheck, close it and try01:13
wildbatKnifeySpooney, nohup command01:13
Jordan_UKnifeySpooney: thune3: If you use '&' after the command you also need to run "disown" before you can actually close the terminal.01:13
HotTunacheck, actually, also in the input tab, there is a slider for volume ( I think )01:14

sebsebsebgz0: not sure when last Galeon was, but yeah that was the previous default Gnome browser before Epiphany,  however distros tend to use Firefox instead.  As also a secondary browser I really like Konqueror its a KDE app, but can run that in Gnome, its also rather fast.01:16
HotTunacheck, what?01:16
KnifeySpooneyJordan_U: thune3: thanks, both work fine.01:17

HermanDE_stercor, /etc may be modified depending on the application...  It will not remove items that are not part of the applicaton...  And will usually prompt about changed files....01:41
stercorHermanDE_: The partitioning instructions only have 2 partitions. A really big one (the whole disk) and a swap partition.01:41

Make sure that only your drive (/dev/sda) and *not* any partitions (like /dev/sda1) are selected as install devices.

mib_mibso i canceled it but my shit is screwed now that i remoed a bunch of packages - how cna i recover from this?01:53
ffffffhey guys, i'm trying to use a dual monitor set up but i can't get my primary monitor to be the one on the left & when i try to change it it just reverts back01:53
macoFalcon31: booting into recovery mode means rebooting and holding shift (if grub2) or esc (if old grub) and then when you get the menu, choose "recovery mode" and then choose "root shell"01:53
zombie-robotanyone got a tut on how to make a .deb package?01:54
macoFalcon31: you can only do that command as root, so since you cant use sudo for it, you need recovery mode01:54

Falcon31maco - thanks. will try again.01:55
macostayf: it shouldnt do that, but the password is either also "ubuntu" or its just-hit-enter01:55
Loshkimib_mib: if apt-get still works, you can reinstall everything you removed. If it doesn't, you'll probably have to reinstall from scratch. A list of removed packages should be in /var/log/dpkg.log in chronological order...01:55
hiexpozombie-robot,  do you already have a package as a rpm or are u doing it from scratch ?01:55

extorIs there any way to start a ssh server on a remote workstation that you are PXE installing to, so you can finish the installation without attaching a monitor and keyboard?01:56

macostayf: did you check the disc for errors? cuz it shouldnt be going to a login screen *at all* so maybe whats making it do that is also whats making it refuse passwords?01:57
HermanDE_extor, Sure...  Just install a static complied SSH server in the PXE bundle....  Ensure you have a username/password that matches the downloaded bundle....01:57
stayfmaco: yes, and strangly that selection leads me to login screen too01:57
wildbati have a problem with the lid button. the system won't react to the the button unless system was suspended once; and after the suspension, the screen off for 0.5 sec at the moment  the button is pressed and released01:58

extorWhat on earth is a static compiled ssh server?01:58
kanhiyai want to know that how do i connect to internet using bluetooth modem as i do in windows01:58

PianoManHi guys. Ubuntu one music is queued to download, and just stays queued.01:59
dsnydersHi all!  I have a wide screen monitor.  Is it possible to "divide" it so that it shows two workspaces?01:59
kanhiyai want to know that how do i connect to internet using bluetooth modem as i do in windows01:59
HermanDE_extor, a binary that does not have any library dependencies...  Just a flat binary that runs.....01:59
AAAextor  it means that ssh was compiled with everything it needs, it doesn't depend on dynamic libraries01:59
hiexpoHotTuna,  - wow u got quiet01:59
extorahhh ok...kinda complicated. Any other possibilities such as a vnc server like centos has?02:00
Loshkiextor: install either openssh-server or vnc. But if there's no keyboard, you're going to have to add it to the pxe image somehow..02:00
HermanDE_extor, Only if the xserver starts....  And you would have to setup the PXE to start X then VNC server....02:00
dsnyderskanhiya, You'll have to give us more info, such as the bluetooth modem model02:01
mib_mibLoshki: so i have a list of the packages, how do i make apt-get just skip them if it can't install them?02:01
slybootsHmm, anyone here setup AFP shares on ubuntu using netatalk? http://www.kremalicious.com/2008/06/ubuntu-as-mac-file-server-and-time-machine-volume/ Followed that guide..02:01
HermanDE_extor, This is kind of easy....  There are a couple of good static SSH server in the world....02:01
slybootsBut the problem is, the "share" shows up in OSX but it seems the server is rejecting my user/pass02:01
extorHermanDE, offtopic but if its so easy then why doesnt the ubuntu installer include such functionality? Or does it perhaps?02:01
HermanDE_extor, Just install it in your PXE...  And it starts immediatly....  user/passwords are static as well....  So that would be a simple text file.....02:01
setzHi again, I'm having a problem with nvidia drivers. I installed the current drivers using jockey-gtk. This allowed me to use 1024x768, which this monitor usually uses, but it only allows me to use it at 60hz, using gentoo, and older ubuntu distros, and windows, I can do 1024x768 at 75 and 85 hz. Why is nvidia-settings only allowing me to use 60hz?02:02
slybootsNow I followed this gudie in Ubuntu 9.10 and it worked perfectly..02:02
Loshkimib_mib: there's a -m option to ignore missing packages...02:02
HermanDE_extor, Putting unchangeable usernames/passwords into distributions is usually considered bad....02:02
extorHow exactly do I "install it in my pxe"? Do I need to mess around with kernel/append parameters? kickstart files?02:02
ejvhelp! i updated nvidia thru apt-get, and now my entire display is broken... what do I do?02:02
ejvI tried restoring xorg.conf, didn't work, i tried running 'nvidia-xsettings' didn't work.02:03
HermanDE_extor, Starting an SSH port automatically is again not in the interest of a distribution....  Because you would need a static user/pass....02:03
Loshkiextor: for better or worse, the developers decided an ssh server isn't part of the default desktop installation. That seems a reasonable choice...02:03
AAAejv  can you pastebin your /var/log/Xorg.0.log02:04
slybootsAnyone? Im pretty stumped -.-02:04
HermanDE_extor, Open up the PXE image...  Look for the root filesystem....  Put the ssh binary into /usr/bin02:04
extorcentos includes vnc as an option02:04
extorHermanDE, and that's EASY? :o02:04
=== mikegerw1tz is now known as mikegerwitz
HermanDE_extor, look for the init.d or inittab...  And insert the command to start the ssh....02:04
HermanDE_extor, Ensure it is *after* the network detection......02:04
kbpright! does anyone know where is the location of the sound theme files in Ubuntu?02:04

sublimepua9.10 is stable, but i would advise the last LTS02:06
kbpOut`Of`Control: exit any music app then restart Firefox02:06

deusex_anybody who had problems with crysis over wine?¿02:08

trimetaI have a couple of questions about disk drive checking; anyone want to reassure me that I didn't horribly mess up my system?02:43

micaelunop To install XnViewMP in KDE/Gnome menu, change the pathname of xnview's folder in XnView.desktop (Exec & Icon)02:44
micaeland move it to /usr/share/applications02:44
micaelsudo cp XnView.desktop /usr/share/applications02:44
AAAmaraja  I usually just edit /etc/apt/sources.list and put a #comment in front of what I want to remove. then apt-get update02:44
acovrigAAA, what time is it 4u, u seem talkative when I goto bed lol02:45
unopmicael, right, so you'll have to decide where you want to place the xnview directory .. i suggest placing it in /opt/02:45

=== Strife1989 is now known as Strife89
trimetaI mean, would restarting a disk check less than 15 minutes into checking a 4.5 TB RAID5 array mess up that array?02:45
marajahumm thanx, i was hoping to get some command inverse add-apt-repositorys02:45
unopmicael, then you change the location in the .desktop file to /opt/xnviewmp  (assuming that's the directory name)  and copy the .desktop file to /usr/share/applications/02:46

fuzzybunny69yhey guys for some reason every once in a while my screen gets all corrupted. I believe the problem started happening when I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04. I have tried taking a screenshot but the problem doesn't show up in the screenshot, so I have taken a picture with my phone. http://i47.tinypic.com/oix7c2.jpg02:48
jillFuzzy, are you running Skype or anything when it happens?02:48
fuzzybunny69yjill, no it happens randomly even when im just at the desktop it will do that then a little while later it will fix itself02:49
razz1I am moving from vista to ubuntu and was wondering what's the best partition scheme. I am thinking 10GB for root, 30GB for home, and rest 40GB for vista. I am not going for a separate swap partition as I have 4GB of ram. any suggestions?02:49
Jordan_Ufuzzybunny69y: Is everything actually upside down or did you just have the phone upside down?02:49
HotTunarazz1, I'd use atleast 1gb for swap...02:50
fuzzybunny69yoh sorry lol i had the phone upside down02:50
ocatacoocan someone give advice on nscd02:50
fuzzybunny69yit is just the screen splitting thing that is annoying02:50
iflemamaraja if you do manually remove, the sources you require may reside in the sources.list.d folder02:50
razz1Hottuna, If I really need swap I can switch it on later, right?02:50
HotTunarazz1, yea02:50
fuzzybunny69yoh and I turned compiz off and the problem still happens02:51
razz1hottuna, I just wanna keep my partitions to the minimum02:51
HotTunarazz1, why not just make a 1gb swap though, it only gets used if you need it.02:51

ocatacoois there a support channel for ubuntu02:54
HotTunarazz1, swap must be a seperate partition ?02:54
fuzzybunny69yjunior_mint, yeah it just started happening it is kinda annoying02:54

unopd5005907, obfuscated swearing is still swearing.  please don't do that.02:55
Jordan_Ustayf: What do you mean "not fast enough"? Does the install actually fail, or is it just too slow for you?02:55
NetScr1beStayf I used SD card02:56
HotTunastayf, download an ubuntu desktop 386 or whatever iso and use unetbootin on whatever OS and it will turn a usb stick in to bootable, then set ur bios to  boot from usb.02:56

IdleOneocatacoo: Do you have a support question?02:57
ocatacoodoes anyone know nscd?02:57
HotTunaunop, um sort of02:57
razz1hottuna, are you sure that swap needs a separate partition, it's just a file and I am sure it can reside inside ubuntu partition02:58
HotTunaunop, it works at 10.0mbps consistently now on a dif kernel with the driver u suggested, but some times it works faster02:58
stayfHotTuna: so i can put it on a flash drive or something?02:58
ocatacoodoes it learn and if from what?02:58
HotTunastayf, its not just a file....02:58
unoprazz1, that's right, you can have a swap file instead of a swap partition.02:58
fuzzybunny69yhey guys i will brb I am just seeing if the problem happens with this livecd02:58

rtronki want to make it so that my user is in the group that has access to read/write,03:02
unoprazz1, well, just mount the windows partition -- and copy the files from there? simple actually.03:02
rtronkis it better to run apache2 as root?03:02
unoprtronk, well, if you want apache to be able to accomodate uploads.  create a new directory like /var/www/uploads -- and change the permissions on it03:03
NetScr1bekeffie_jayx, run tail -f /var/log/messages then connect something and see what you get03:04
unoprtronk, the reason why this is not recommended for /var/www is because if apache is compromised in anyway, then people can change stuff relating to your website -- and i'm sure you don't want that.03:04
HotTunaJon--, how are you testing ?03:04
pokoko222how can i join more iso parts in one?03:04
keffie_jayxNetScr1be:  is that the same as dmesg?03:04
Jon--HotTuna: YouTube and .mp3 in VLC03:05
razz1unop, so copy and paste is the best option. I was just wondering if there was a way ubuntu can scan my windows drive and move them to home folder and segregate them accordingly03:05

HotTunaJon--, I just see SB which is usually sound blaster03:07
HotTunarjune, exactly03:07
macorjune: uhhh didnt?03:07
rjunemaco, Creative Labs makes sound blaster. it's an audio card.03:07
rjuneATi makes Video Cards03:07
Jordan_Upokoko222: "cat" is a terminal command for "catinating" files. How comfortable are you with the terminal?03:08
macorjune: right... so "didn't"03:08
Jon--HotTuna: It works fine on Ubuntu 9.04 and up out of the box, this box is 8.10 though. [can't change it]03:08
HotTunawhat a dumb argument03:08
razz1cavej03, I am planning on using MYTHtv, I presently use vista media center, love it but will be moving to ubuntu soon, how good is it? and does it have any issues? I used media portal for some time, very disappointing. I hope MYTHtv is better03:08
stayfHotTuna: the drive is not showing up as an option03:08
rjunemaco, when didn't ati make sound blaster ... nmind.03:08
HotTunastayf, how is it formatted03:08

stayfHotTuna: i am using sudo03:10
razz1rjune: is mythtv a resource hog?03:10
Jordan_Ucdw32: Why do you think you need a newer driver?03:10
HotTunastayf, not sure then, unetbootin see's my stick ;\03:10
rjunerazz1, I've not found it to be such, but I had a seperate server and client.03:10
unoprazz1, admittedly, yes.  but it's also the safest way.03:11
Jon--HotTuna: Did you say that to me? Awfully rude.03:11
rjunenote the past tense, my frontend died.03:11
cdw32Jordan_U: well my vid quality suck, thats the only thing i can think of03:11
HotTunaJon--, well I was going to try to figure it out ;\03:11
stayfHotTuna: is fat allowed?03:11
unoprazz1, i tried looking for something to help you, but it turns up nothing practical.03:11
pokoko222Jordan_U ok i got the iso file now. But now it wants me to burn it on cd, i cant open it otherwise, is there a way to mount it on virtual drive?03:11
HotTunaJon--, and say what to you03:11
Jordan_Ucdw32: What graphics card? In what way is the quality bad?03:11
HotTunastayf, umm fat32 ?03:11
stayfHotTuna: oh that was a stupid question considering unetbootin works on windows as well03:11
HotTunastayf, yea it does.03:11
Jordan_U!iso | pokoko22203:11
Jon--HotTuna: About the stupid arg03:12
ubottupokoko222: To mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.03:12
HotTunaJon--, didn't think you were involved actualy03:12
tyrosineIN 10.04 NVIDIA DRIVERS seem to force me to run dual-head with two separate X sessions.  This sucks, but I'm living with it.  I'm trying to view OO impress and OO writer on separate screens.  No matter which screen I launch it from, it always opens on the left and I can't drag it right -- what can I do???03:12
Jordan_Upokoko222: You can also right click the file in the file manager and choose "Open with archive mounter"03:12
Jon--HotTuna: Haha, thought you were referring to my 8.10 comment03:12
HotTunaJon--, i try not to argue on the internet since I can't shoot anyone ;\03:13

HotTunaJon--, sorry I really don't use 8.10 and this is a 10.04 support channel ;\03:13
pokoko222Jordan_U what is mountpoint?03:13
razz1unop, I am not getting rid of vista completely, so even if only folders like documents, pictures, music, etc, all the common folders are copied over I will be happy. I have a lot of data, to move it manually is a nightmare. and for the rest I can mount the vista drive and grab it when I need it03:14

Jordan_Upokoko222: It is a directory that you will be able to access the iso's contents through. "/mnt" is a good directory to use.03:14
Blue1decay33: let's not go there03:15
HotTunaJon--, it shows up, but you hear nothing, do the programs complain about no sound device or do they play?03:15
pokoko222Jordan_U i execute that and i get: you must specify the filesystem type03:15
Blue1cdw32: what kind of card to you have?  hint:  lspci | grep VGA03:15
razz1rjune:  I will be running myth tv on the same system. I hope it does not stress the resources. and does it offer PIP03:15

decay33why not Blue103:15
HotTunaJon--, and ur sure alsamixer everything has a 00 under it and volume is up?03:15
cdw32Blue1: one second03:15
rjunerazz1, PIP only if you have two tuners I think03:16
Jordan_Upokoko222: Then it's not a valid iso for some reason. Where did you get this set of iso file parts from?03:16
HTT-BirdUbuntu's kernel-package spits out Ubuntu-ified kernels, right? :)03:16
razz1rjune: I have two HD tuners.03:16

|enigma|is it in /etc/ or??03:38

Jordan_U!minimal | stayf03:41
ubottustayf: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD03:41
Jon--HotTuna: How long you around for03:41
Blue1cdw32: beg pardon?03:41
philsf|enigma|, what exactly are you trying to do?03:41

stayfJordan_U: that's desktop edition?03:42
|enigma|but apparently I guess my host laptop which is Compaq 6720s has Ubuntu and not enable for 3D03:43
Jordan_Ustayf: A smaller CD might be less likely to have errors. If you use the netboot CD rather than the minimal CD it's even smaller, and will only read the CD once during boot (everything it needs from the CD is loaded immediately into RAM, then the rest grabbed from the network)03:43
Jon--HotTuna: Alright. I'll do a reboot in a bit03:43
HotTunaJon--, wait03:43
stayfJordan_U: sounds great. it's ubuntu desktop correct?03:43
|enigma|trying figure out whether it is 3D enable or not even i tried glxinfo | grep rendering03:44
Jordan_Ustayf: It will result in the same installation (if you choose the defaults), but the installer is pseudo text based and ugly as sin :)03:44
HotTunaJon--, also add to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf03:44
HotTunaoptions snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-2 enable_msi=103:44

Dougdoug4I select the 'format drive' option and format the filesystem of the USB as fat32 when i create the USB. I also choose 'no persistence'03:49
Dougdoug4are any of these settings incorrect? because when i boot the usb installer i create, it doesn't work03:49

Jordan_UNomad_: You can only skip releases when you're going from LTS to LTS, and you really don't want to upgrade through intrepid and jaunty to get to karmic04:38
Nomad_Jordan_U: if it's the only way to get to karmic, I do04:38

aLemmer1For Gnome, that is.04:49
thon0925Just installed Xubuntu on my friends inspiron 1000 (much faster than XP @ 256 mb of RAM)04:49
Jordan_Uwraanger: Different set of default applications. While that may not sound like much, in linux pretty much everything can be replaced, so it can make a huge difference.04:49
greezmunkeyjohn__: heh, did you type xrander in a terminal?04:49
acerimmer_aLemmer1: http://art.gnome.org/04:49
wraangerthon0925 : my system is more or less new, but ... i don't like installing unused things ... and after instaling Ubuntu 10.04, I have found MANY things that I am not using or will ever going to use ... so I decided to look for some information )04:50
thon0925anyway, he told me that he had all of the pictures on his other computer, and that I could format the drive04:50
greezmunkeyjohn__: type it in a terminal, and paste the output.04:50
mib_mibhey guys, what happened to /etc/ssh/sshd_config in ubuntu 10.04?04:50
john__greezmunkey: nah i did a file search, must of made a noob mistake04:50
acerimmer_aLemmer1: http://gnome-look.org/ also04:50
thon0925wraanger : you could remove unused apps in Ubuntu04:50
Jordan_Uwraanger: I recommend trying an Xubuntu LiveCD to see how you like it (note that LiveCDs run slower and use more RAM than the actual installed system will)04:50
greezmunkeyjohn__: at least you know how to find a file :)04:50
Izinucsmib_mib: it's there04:50
decay33how to extract a file called virtualfriend.sit04:50

thon0925anyway, I've done data recovery before, but how would I go about retrieving photos from a drive that has been formatted over in EXT4?04:52
greezmunkeyJackJelinek: if you take it out of your computer, and throw it really hard it makes a whooshing shound.04:52
wraangeracerimmer_ : thanks, will look04:52
Jordan_Uwraanger: If you really want a mininimal install, then you can use the minimal CD and only install what you want.04:52
wraangerthanks for answers, ppl04:52
Jordan_U!minimal | wraanger04:52
ubottuwraanger: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD04:52
tucemiuxthon0925, has it been long since the hard drive was formatted over??04:53
JackJelinekhmmm, i'll try that. i'll get back to you on how that worked ;) buyt really do you have any idea how to get it working?"04:53
thon0925no, just recently04:53
greezmunkeyjohn__: yes, see if you have a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf - if so paste the contents.04:53
tucemiuxthon0925, if you havent written to it there's a **big** chance you can recover the entire partition, head over to the forum, the same thing happened to me and I was able to recover a partition04:54
thon0925I know some of the files will be gone, since it's a small drive and system files were probably written over some pictures04:54

greezmunkeySReject: I think that maybe your question is based on the presumption that wine and windows are the same. They're not.05:46
SRejectgreezmunkey i know they aren't :)05:46
[BG]Zlobidrizzt_, these ARE NOT unicode :)05:46
[BG]ZlobiI suspect they are cp125105:47
[BG]ZlobiI can create new fine05:47
[BG]ZlobiBut cant read these05:47
drizzt_[BG]Zlobi, you cannot have cp1251 names on NTFS partition. did you create them from Linux?05:47
[BG]Zlobiok, win1251 then05:48
[BG]ZlobiI have always thought these are sinonims05:48
[BG]ZlobiBecause we linux folks hate the win part05:49
drizzt_[BG]Zlobi, filenames on NTFS partitions are always unicode05:49
drizzt_was the files with incorrect names created in windows or in linux?05:50
SRejectbasically it's seeing "/home/user/..." as vitual drive C and i want it set to the windows partion05:50
drizzt_SReject, there must be Wine control panel where you assign drives for wine05:50

ShroudedCloudBeen trying to fix it for days, at a loss.06:32
yillkidwildbat: Sorry my poor Englist, I say, don't using minimal CD installation any more, change to the "debootstrap" method?06:32
firepilotthanks acerimmer_ although I'm actually just looking for help compiling a kernel.06:32
AAAxpike  dpkg -L gyachi show files?06:32
greezmunkeyshadows090: remove both rules on your firewall, then restart it, then create an inbound only port 22 to your sshd server - then test again.06:32
drizzt_xpike, go to source dir and try 'make uninstall'06:32
ActionParsnipdoug_: then run: lspci;lsusb ,and find guides etc. 9.10 is supported until april next year so you can comfortably hang with karmic06:32
doug_ActionParsnip, is there a term command tomake it tell me about my hardware or do you mean through the gui somewhere?06:32
bodzillaxspike synaptic will also show dependencies if you add the bar from setting preferences in synaptic for the info widow06:32
FloodBot1xpike: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.06:32
wildbatyillkid, you sadi yo installe the debootstrap? and it took 538 MB ?? right?06:33
doug_ActionParsnip, I need to reinstall anyway cus sound is not working and I broke some other stuff trying to fix it so that's why I was thnking of trying 10.4 again06:33
ShroudedCloudHey, can I get some assistance on a Notify-OSD issue? It displays system things, but not common things (like messages from RhythmBox or Empathy)06:33
yillkidwildbat: Yes "debootstrap is 538 MB", but the minimal CD install is "678 MB"06:34
xpikeim so fustrated >.<06:34
AAAxpike  hrm. you could try dpkg-reconfigure gyachi then apt-get remove06:34
ActionParsnipDoug_: then boot live lucid cd with the boot options to make it fly then update / install drivers. Should be ok as karmic works :)06:34
doug_ActionParsnip, most companysdon't have linux drivers do they though?? I never had to install a driver forlinuxbefore everyting has just worked06:35
wildbatyillkid, so you just delete/uninstall the debootstrap to free the space?06:35
ActionParsnipYillkid: could try lubuntu. Its using about 1.5Gb here I believe.06:35
ShroudedCloudAnyone at all?06:36
wildbatActionParsnip, he have 6XXMB only06:36
yillkidActionParsnip: 1.5 GB is too big.06:36
ActionParsnipyillkid: or there's featherlinux, DSL, puppy linux (puppy uses apt-get afaik now)06:36
ActionParsnipyillkid: lots of small distros to run at.06:36
Tac_Homeso, I did 'sudo tasksel remove lamp-server' and it GUTTED my machine... .no gnome, no anything, can't even boot up to anything but a command prompt.... anyone know how in the world that happened?06:36
doug_Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integrated Graphics Device <<< I have that vid card06:37
yillkidwildbat: No, I using a new HDD to install ubuntu minimal CD.06:37
Sc00t3rThat's not a video card, Doug.. That's a integrated graphics controller.06:37
ActionParsnipDoug_: ok then see how it is with lucid using websearches06:37
shadows090greezmunkey: I apologize for misstating it in my post. I actually only have an inbound port forwarding set up.  I have it set up as external: 22 Internal: 22 protocol: both to ipaddress: (mystaticip). i have enabled and saved changes :-/06:37
Hilikus_how can i tell which users are using a database?06:37
drizzt_Tac_Home, who said tasksel works?06:37
yillkidActionParsnip: Thank you, but I want not out of support with official ubuntu .06:38
unopHilikus_, depends on the database management system.06:38
Tac_Homedrizzt_: well, I sure won't be using it again....06:38
Hilikus_unop: MYISAM06:38
greezmunkeyshadows090: in a terminal: sudo netstat -antp | grep "LISTEN" - see if sshd is listening...06:38
unopHilikus_, probably a question for #mysql then06:38
greezmunkeyshadows090: see what port, etc...06:38
Tac_Homedrizzt_: is there a way to enable wireless, and somehow fix it and get everything back to normal from commandline?06:38
wildbatyillkid, then use 'du -h' to figure out what took the space, i think is just cache06:38
yillkidI just want to find a way to install ubuntu, and the size must less than 538 MB .06:38
Sc00t3r-sigh.- I wish I could get the fan controller to work in 10.04.06:39
ActionParsnipyillkid: your small space reuirement may force you away from ubuntu. It isn't always the answer06:39
fcwlxdlivecd may be a good choice.06:39
Flannelyillkid: You can't realistically install Ubuntu on 500MB.  But there are a plethora of other Linux choices06:39
Sc00t3ryillkid, You can't. Compressing folders from Ubuntu can cause major instability, because of the fact that the more you compress flies, the greater the chance is that something is going to go wrong during the decommpression/compression.06:39
acerimmer_yillkid: im thinking you might be a candidate for a USB startup disk...06:39
ActionParsnipDoug_: sudo lshw -C display ,will tell you more about your video card06:39
[BG]Zlobidrizzt_, I am here :)06:40
Sc00t3ryillkid, If you want an Ubuntu installation like that, try Lubuntu. It is a 520mb Live CD I believe.06:40
ActionParsnipSc00t3r: the livecd uses squashfs. Livecd runs stable no?06:40
geekphreakhowdy all06:40
Sc00t3rActionParsnip, The LiveCD is still 680MB.06:40
Flannelyillkid: Wait, this is a new harddrive that is only 500MB?06:40
ActionParsnipSc00t3r: yes but the squashfs allows it to hold nearly double that amount once extracted06:41
Sc00t3rActionParsnip, Realistically, unless you want absolutely no room for a cache or anything of the likes..?06:41

FlannelMeatCurtains: Don't use root, use sudo instead.06:41
geekphreakMeatCurtains: use sudo06:41
Flannel!sudo | MeatCurtains06:41
ubottuMeatCurtains: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with  superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli ) . Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For  graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with  sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo06:41

xpikewhoops i mean06:41
xpikeconfigure: error: cannot find include file gpgme.h. Perhaps you need to install the gpgme development package?06:41
doug_ActionParsnip, I found a post on forum with exact sameproblem and hardware as me06:41

doug_ActionParsnip, https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/10919306:42

doug_ActionParsnip, that is it ifyou are curious06:42
Sc00t3rsudo facepalm -self06:42
ActionParsnipyillkid: you could modify the iso to have waaay less apps then reburn that. If you are expecting full media codecs and flash etc then its not going to work with ubuntu as far as I can see. I'd go for puppy. Its awesoem06:42
xpikehow do i install  gpgme.h06:42
doug_ActionParsnip, I think I will try the solution which worked for that user though, thank you for you assitance06:42
MeatCurtainsI know its not recommended, but I have to have unhindered access to these directories I'm making. I can't even paste files into them06:43

Tac_Homedrizzt_: is there a way to enable wireless, and somehow fix it and get everything back to normal from commandline?06:44
ActionParsnipMeatcurtains: use sudo and gksudo. You have full access if you are a member of admin. Logging in as root is no advised and if you start loading apps like irc and web browsers then its hugly foolish06:44
doug_whatis the latest kernel version they are on now?06:44
[BG]ZlobiAnd with BG gives: mount: can't find locale=bg_BG.CP1251 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab06:44
drizzt_Tac_Home, what was problem with wireless?06:44
shadows090greezmunkey: i'm not familiar with that, but i assume that it is listening since I have been able to ssh into the server if I am on the same LAN; only not when i try to use the external IP address06:44

yillkidFlannel: 538 MB is the base system size. My ram size is 2GB.06:44
drizzt_[BG]Zlobi, that mean you made a space somewhere06:44
Tac_Homedrizzt_: no idea how to enable it from the commandline, then is there even some way to fix everything that tasksel broke once I get networking up?06:44
Flannelyillkid: So, what's your question or problem?06:44
Sc00t3rstupidxp, Hahah'. You can get yourself a nice 500GB E-HDD for about $80 nowadays.06:45
ActionParsnipyillkid: ubuntu just isn't gonna work for you dude. Your storage is way too small. Xpud is about 10mb and boots faster than most people can sneeze06:45

doug_anyone know what version of the kernel they are on now?06:46
yillkidFlannel: I want to find a way to install ubuntu base system, and the OS size must less than 538 MB.06:46
stupidxpah but you see i'm using ubuntu and my old ntfs06:46
Flannelyillkid: Why do you need to do that?06:46
Sc00t3rActionParsnip, Yeah. It's a lot like Ubuntu NR. Pretty decent, except for it lacks for what I want- You know, OpenOffice and such.06:46
ActionParsnipSc00t3r: still its smaller than puppy now which is up to 120mb these days06:47
Sc00t3rActionParsnip, Honestly, I think I'd want to smack someone who has less than a 80GB HDD.. Who's not willing to spend the $40 for a 500GB SATA2?06:47
ActionParsnipSc00t3r: googledocs takes care of office dude. Less impact on the system itself ;)06:47
shadows090greezmunkey, on my server correct? I am still new to this so sorry if that's a stupid question06:47

yillkidacerimmer_: a USB startup disk already ? I do not understand .06:50
[BG]Zlobiand many combos around it, tbh...06:50
drizzt_[BG]Zlobi, you need specify mount point after /dev/sda206:50
doug_Slart, I don't want to know what I'm using I want to know what is the latest one available06:50
Flannelyillkid: Ah.  So, you don't need the full GUI, just a "base system".  That's easy then.  Grab the alternate CD and install a "command line only" system (f4 or f5 or something like that will let you choose that option from the boot menu of the CD), or alternatively, use the server CD to install, which installs GUI-less by default.06:51
Sc00t3ryillkid, A USB startup disk is like the LiveCD, except on a USB device. You know, on a flash drive.06:51
shadows090greezmunkey. I am not sure how to PM. would it be bad practice to show the pastebin url for this?06:51
xpikewhat about mcrypt.h06:51
Slartdoug_: ehm.. that is the latest one available.. I have absolutely no idea which kernel you're using.. for all I know you could be using an old Amiga or something right now06:51

drizzt_yillkid, that's ok06:54
* wise_crypt have not used win since 2003 gosh that long06:54

[BG]Zlobidrizzt_, it looks mounted, but not able to explore the drive06:54
[BG]Zlobiwaits and jumps to the one above06:54

Sc00t3rstupidxp, And if you added a registry file, you might be able to remove it from the installation to get it to boot- considering you can still access the files from ubuntu.06:57

xpikeyea i know07:02
Flannelyillkid: How did you install via deboostrap?07:02
* Debolaz has full disk encryption, so a shutdown would basically lock the user completely out of the system. 07:02
ActionParsnipDotblank: its a supported release so gets updates just like lucid does.07:02
geekphreakFlannel: well i am all ears, will check on it too07:02
xpikeso theres no such thing as backwards compadability now? lol07:03
wise_cryptActionParsnip: owh android hihi okey07:03
yillkidFlannel: hmm ... I mount the HDD to a floader, and #debootatrap lucid /mnt/xxxx07:03
ActionParsnipwise_crypt: exactly07:03
prince_jammysxpike: if you're going to end up compiling it, see the INSTALL or README files provided in what you downloaded.07:03
xpikeIm not doing anything anymore lol07:03
xpikeim done07:03
drizzt_xpike, don't be a c..t and update to a modern system07:03
Flannelyillkid: What are you saying?  You have a single install, and you look at the space two ways and it's different sizes?07:03
yillkidFlannel: And mount /dev ... /proc ... to the target, and intall kernl image, reboot .07:04
xpikei may update to 10.1 32 bit07:04
Flannelxpike: If it depends on a library version that's newer than the one you have then you wouldn't be able to use it07:04
stupidxplol shutting down would lock alot of people out of  the pc?07:04
doug_okay, I think this is my planim going to install 10.4 then upgrade to mainline kernel 2.6.34 on scale of 1 to 10 how hard is that going to be for a noob?07:04
[BG]Zlobidrizzt_, ?07:04
[BG]ZlobiI love U07:04
yillkidFlannel: No. The minimal size I can make, the via debootstrap ... 538MB, just all .07:05

[BG]ZlobiUTF-8 works07:05
[BG]ZlobiNow how to automate this? :)07:05
xpikedo i have to install a from a new disc for 8.04 to 10.1 or  can i recompile everything?07:05
Flannelyillkid: No, you could certainly make a smaller system.  But, I'm not sure what you're looking for anymore.  Are you wondering why the server install isn't the smallest possible?07:05
drizzt_[BG]Zlobi, put the record in /etc/fstab07:05
Flannelxpike: You can upgrade from 8.04 to 10.0407:05
dotblankxpike, you'd be btter off downloading the 10.04 cd and installing fresh07:06
Flannelxpike: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LucidUpgrades07:06
xpikeyea im gunna do it that way07:06
jaybinkshey .. ive got 64bit version of 10.04 installed...    its only saying I have 8gig of ram, but I have 12... how do I fix this ?07:06
xpikei have a feeling once i upgrade my compiz fusion would stop working07:06
geekphreakjaybinks: send 4 to me ;)07:06
jaybinkshaha ... thats 1 option...07:06
Slartjaybinks: perhaps your motherboard has a limit on how much memory it can handle?07:07
yillkidFlannel: Yes, and I want to find a way to install the minimal-est ubuntu. :)07:07
jaybinksbios shows 12 gig fine..07:07
drizzt_xpike, do you work on your computer or play with compiz?07:07
Flannelyillkid: Take what you've got, remove everything you don't want.  That'll be the easiest way.07:07
dotblankI never have compiz enabled07:07
yillkidFlannel: Any way, just the OS DO NOT out of the ubuntu official support .07:07
xpikeboth lol07:07
xpikeI know compiz is a resource hog07:08
Flannelyillkid: What do you mean by "official Ubuntu support"?07:08
geekphreakxpike: i love it07:08
xpikebut ti was the easiest thing to do on ubuntu07:08
Debolazgeekphreak: It seems pam_tally.so counts the number of failed attempts. But it only supports locking the account, not executing a specific command. Might be possible to modify it.07:08
jaybinksalso has anyone got compiz working over 2 Video cards ??? ( Nvidia )07:08
xpikei didnt wanna bother struggling to get compiz to work on another distro lol07:08
dotblankjaybinks, yes... and no07:08
jaybinksI currently have 3 x 24" monitors rotated 90 degrees ...07:09
jaybinksand compiz dosnt want to play nice07:09
yillkidFlannel: Using "debootstrap" way, I tried, not many change, because too dependency problems, it will cause the broken packages .07:09
dotblankjaybinks, nice07:09
jaybinksthe mouse works ok on 2 monitors, ( on same card )07:09
geekphreakDebolaz: thats interesting , will look into it :)07:09
dotblankjaybinks, I have a 24" and a projector07:09
jaybinksbut then if I move the mouse to the 2nd card ...  it starts freaking out07:09
jaybinksbe nice to get compiz going07:09
dotblankjaybinks, are you using them as seperate xservers or are you running xinerama07:10
yillkidFlannel: I want to use the official ubuntu apt server, because I want not to maintain my OS by myself .07:10
jaybinksat the moment ive got it running as separate X Screens..07:10
jaybinkscoz twinview wouldnt work for me :(07:10
dotblankjaybinks, twin view only works on a single video card07:10
jaybinksyea .. separate X Servers ...07:10
Flannelyillkid: Ah, well, you can remove anything you want and still use the repositories.  Upgrading would be different, but nothing's going to kick you off the repositories.07:10
jaybinksyea so there is my problem with twinview :P its not triview :)07:10
xpikeoh I have another question... i have saved passwords in my firefox on my windows partition, is there a way I can access it by mounting the drive and exploring the firefox directory?07:10
jaybinksseparate X servers just feels a little slow...07:11
dotblankjaybinks, actually there is a card that lets you do it07:11
drizzt_yillkid, install dsl and stop trolling that channel07:11
dotblankjaybinks, but its expensive07:11

prince_jammysxpike: perhaps you can use some of the settings from the window installation.07:11
kbrosnanprince_jammys: fairly trivial07:11
xpikethanks alot07:12
drizzt_should I install the recent kernel update?07:12
yillkiddrizzt_: What mistake I make?07:12
dotblankon those cards you can used the sli cards outputs as well07:13
alex87anyone else *still* having issues with 64-bit? ie, the latest version of flash. i have 4GB of ram (which i never fill), not sure it's worth bothering yet07:13
drizzt_yillkid, Ubuntu is not supposed to be small07:13
geekphreakDebolaz: it has other options i see, nothing to execute a command perhaps if it makes sense to you07:13
dotblankalex87, I don't have issues with 64 bit... just flash07:13
drizzt_drizzt_, Debian and Ubuntu are built around the functionality, not efficiency07:13
Debolazgeekphreak: I'm looking into pam_exec now. It's not exactly what I want, but could provide a useful way of plugging into the pam system without having to resort to C.07:13
alex87dotblank, yeah, i haven't had many other issues. another reason to oust adobe i guess07:14
drizzt_you may try other distros, like arch or gentoo07:14

r0zzhi somebody can help me ?07:17
unopandrewfree, you'll need a special usb cable and drivers for both OSes to do that.07:17
ubottuA large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?07:17
r0zzi have problem with a usb live07:17
unopandrewfree, why not use the network instead?07:17
dotblankunop, not true.. you can still use normal cables for it07:17
dotblankunop, but it is very complicated07:18
stupidxphow do i force mount? how do i list drives?07:18
drizzt_andrewfree, USB connection of computers are NOT supported07:18
geekphreakstupidxp: guess who is back :p07:18
andrewfreeok makes sense, so better question. I have a drive with linux on it,  can I boot a PC up from that drive to do repairs to the drive.07:18
geekphreakr0zz: as in?07:18
unopdotblank, i've tried this before -- and had to resort to buying the cables .. in anycase, you need the drivers07:18
stupidxpi googled and think i found where it is07:18
geekphreakstupidxp: sudo fdisk -l07:18
r0zzim using a iso, before my iso was 700 mb but now i need other package and is 1.4gb when boot tell me need to in congous area07:19

ziohi everybody07:19

drizzt_r0zz, the usb device is too fragmented to boot from07:19
r0zzwhat do i need to do?07:20
zioi need help :(07:20
unopdotblank, umm no, but that would constitute using drivers right?07:20
drizzt_r0zz, probably reformat and recreate it07:20
fcwlxdzio:what is wrong07:20
kelvinellahi, is xubuntu or ubuntu netbook remix is better for an old laptop?07:20
dotblankunop, well everything uses drivers.. but I think on most machines its already there07:20
dotblankunop, it emulates a flash drive... so you don't need to install extra drivers07:21
[BG]Zlobiandrewfree, afaik usb can't be used between two PCs07:21
ZorkyHEy all. I have a HP DC5100 Computer which supports 4GB ram. after a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 it can only detect 3GB what can I do?07:21
dotblankunop, I stand corrected on the cable thing actually.. but you don't need special drivers07:21
[BG]ZlobiBut IEEE1394 aka Firewire can07:21
drizzt_kelvinella, linux is not good for old laptops, because hardware support is lacking and no drivers are developed for old hardware07:21
unopdotblank, well, the one I used simulated that bi-directionally and you could enable networking if you wanted.07:21
zio fcwlxd: whats the difference between installing grub on entire disk (dev/sda) or istalling it in the first partition?07:22
stupidxphow do i force mount?07:22
drizzt_Zorky, pae07:22
kelvinelladrizzt_, what?07:22
[BG]Zlobistupidxp, with -f or smth...07:22

happosadeWhat does mean that mdadm says, when I am creating new raid5-system: mdadm: Cannot open /dev/sdd: Device or resource busy07:25
drizzt_kelvinella, it misses most Gnome tools, and support is third-rate07:25
mneptokdrizzt_: Kubuntu "misses most GNOME tools" as well. this is what happens when *you don't use GNOME*.07:26
[BG]Zlobiandrewfree, I think you can, at least have separate folder on usb and use from there once booted07:26
zioplease somebody07:26
kelvinelladrizzt_, what gnome tool missing?  i thought xubuntu and ubuntu are the same except using different x windows07:26
drizzt_mneptok, kubuntu have equivalent tools, xubuntu has nothing07:26
[BG]Zlobiandrewfree, however some stuff does not work w/o real install, you know...07:26
r0zzhow can virtual box recognize usb07:26

linxehManDay: what problem ?11:39
notmorewindowshi, i cant upgrade to kernel  in xubuntu 10.04 lts the kernel does not settle11:39
ManDaylinxeh, very simply put: It does not what it's supposed to do. Specifically, certain JMol Java Applets fail to work due to errors.11:40
ManDaylinxeh, on the other hand these applets work on a machine with simlar configuration (that is Ubuntu 10.4)11:40
quietoneI have another machine with similar problem, very slow to get to grub and then lucid is so slow to be unusable. and now that XP won't boot at all. Is there a fix or do I reinstall?11:40
notmorewindowshi, i cant upgrade to kernel  in xubuntu 10.04 lts the kernel I cannot install it11:42
ManDayHello guys, I need advice - feel free to comment whatever you like - ANYTHING is appreciated as I am completely stuck: A end-user applet complains about a line " >>>> <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"> <<<<" in a file which it got from a server on port 8080 - YET when I check out the file myself THAT LINE is not there and the file looks all proper!11:42
Lazy^Hello, how i can get Adobe Shockwave Player working on Firefox 3.6.3 ?11:42
ManDay^ linxeh , to me more specific11:42
Black_PhantomLazy^ no shockwave for linux to my knowledge11:42
buppa_How do I set mime types in Ubuntu -- like if it's .diz, .asc I want it to be opened with NFO viewer and if its .txt or .log I want it to be opened with GEDIT by default, how can i do that?11:42
isbricerror: wlan0 no private ioctls. is due to a bug?11:43
kc_hello, I am new to ubuntu11:43
indusstrwg, hi11:43
linxehManDay: well that sounds more like a problem with the applet. do you have the specific errors (stack traces?) that you can pastebin?11:43
Lazy^hmm... Black_Phantom so you mean, that i can get videos working from www.southparkstudios.com or sites like that ?11:43
linxehManDay: oh I see11:43
dli__buppa_, right click on the file, select "Properties"->"Open with"11:43
linxehManDay: can you paste the url ?11:43
indusstrwg, stick with transcend or other good brands because cheap ones have lot of defects and will overheat or fry etc11:43
notmorewindowshi my kernel is 2.6.32-22 generic, but i cant upgrade to kernel  in xubuntu 10.04 lts the kernel I cannot install it11:43
SomelauwCan I make sure that if I run a program it can only only stdin and stdout? It shouldn't be able to open any other files.11:43
indusstrwg, and the contacts will wear out11:43
Black_PhantomLazy^ Adobe Flash Player or Shockwave ?11:44
buppa_dli__, yes but by default it will open with abiword -- how can i change that to gedit?11:44
Black_PhantomThere is a difference11:44
Lazy^Flash Player is working... But Shockwave isnt ?11:44
Cavej03indus, hi i made it into 8.04 and got internet access11:44
Black_PhantomLazy^ to view southparkstudios you only need flash player11:44
notmorewindowshi, i cant update to kernel  in xubuntu 10.04 lts the kernel I cannot install it11:44
Lazy^Black_Phantom: if you can go to http://www.southparkstudios.com and tell me which plugin that site needs...11:44
Cavej03however the commands you gave me only detected my usb stick i am trying to install from11:44
ManDaylinxeh, yes, http://localhost:8000/home/admin/0/cells/1/sage0-size500.jmol?1276349004  - or, if you need something usable, check out the online SAGE-Nb at http://t2nb.math.washington.edu:8000/11:45
Black_PhantomLazy^ install it from ubuntu software center easy way, search flash player11:45
linxehManDay: yeah, I was hoping for something I could pull down myself to inspect :)11:45
Black_Phantomit will install in seconds, restart ur browser and southpark studios should work.11:45
Cavej03search restricted extras?11:45
ManDaylinxeh, set up a account at the site I gave you (no email whatsoever required)11:45

linxehManDay: heh might just have been a server glitch11:54
madjoeDoes anybody use Chrome here? After I leave my Chrome browser for a few hours, my CPU goes to 100% of usage and I assume it's because of excessive amount of RAM taken by the Flash plugin so it uses HDD afterwards. I don't know if there is a workaround for this (except using another browser)?11:54
quietonebuppa_, select use a custom command at the bottom of the properties and enter whatever cmd you want11:54
ManDaylinxeh, no11:54

dli__kaiser2011, if you don't need windows later, you can do manually partition12:11

erUSULAAA_awright: did you fsck your filesystem? maybe it is chocking in some corrupted filesystem ?
