DasEisoreau: janitor01:22
soreauede: Generally speaking, you don't want to remove anything. As you do updates, it will remove old packages and replace them with new ones as needed01:23

KingOfTheKillAAA: ok do you know if tightvnc client need tightvnc server to connect?01:30
DasEibuntfu: no, want to clone a system ?01:30
AAADasEi  not tried that one. I'll keep it in mind next time I need vnc01:30

AAAKingOfTheKill  to answer your original question, yes you can tweak. but no, I don't have advice for that :(01:32
buntfuDasEi, in the installer you get to import settins and files from your windows account to your new ubuntu system thats the tool i want to access01:32
KingOfTheKillAAA: ok thx01:32
DasEibuntfu: now I get you, don't know for a standalone app to do that, why not create the user ?01:33

gbear14275hello, I've been researching pci passthrough to enable NIC passthrough to one of my VM's and believe it requires vt-d support from my motherboard.  I discovered that there is no vt-d support on my motherboard and am wondering if there is a way to do PCI (specifically NIC) passthrough without vt-d?  the reason I am investigating this is I only have 1 static public facing IP to assign to a webserver I would like to run as a V01:44

gbear14275specifically I am running ubuntu 10.04 server as a VM host01:44
bnaveHi All, I have kind of off topic question.  I bought a netbook for traveling with the intention of putting Ubuntu Netbook Edition on it.  The netbook comes with Windows 7 Starter Edition.  Now, I've never owned a Windows box EVER.  I'm very knowledgeable on Linux/MacOSX/Solaris, but know very little about winblows admin.  I'd personally have no issue formatting the netbook drive and saying...01:45
bnave...good bye to windows forever on it.  But my wife, who is not Linux savy, is worried that there will be something that she won't be able to do in ubuntu.  I'm pretty sure once she uses it, she won't want Windows anymore.  So my question is how can I image the drive in the netbook so that I can restore it at a later time if I need to?  From my Mac experience, I'd like to be able to mount the...01:45
bnave...netbook on my mac in Target Disk Mode and image the drive that way.  I'm pretty sure there's no way to do that (but i'd love to hear that i'm wrong).  From the Linux side, I'm thinking I should be able to boot off the Ubuntu Netbook Edition thumb drive that I made for the install and use dd to copy the entire disk off to a usb drive.  If I do the opposite to restore it, will that work? ...01:45
bnave...Do I need to worry about the mbr or the partition map?  I've also looked at BartPE/DriveImage XML, but since I don't have Windows CDs and the netbook has Windows 7, I'm not sure that will work.  Any ideas for me?01:45
FloodBot1bnave: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.01:45

KingOfTheKillbnave: use pastebin if your going to post such a long thingy01:46
AAAtoolbear  aplund yup. ldconfig01:46
bnaveKingOfTheKill: roger that...the flood bot told me that also01:47
AAAtoolbear  you'll want to run that before you try and use the .so, wherever you decide to put it01:48
BitSprocketbnave, I had the same issue with my netbook.  I found that there is a utility installed that would create restore DVD's for me - course I had to buy an external drive first.01:48
BitSprocketIf you don't want to do that, you could image it using an imaging tool first.01:48
Jon--I have an issue with my Ubuntu boot. I expanded my NTFS windows partition using gparted, and so when Windows booted, it did a chkdsk automatically. It works fine in Windows, but it complains about problems with the drive on boot (mouting). I can manually mount it from the terminal, but the automatic doesn't like it, doesn't pass the check. How can I fix this?01:48
toolbearaplund: ok, well, now i've tried putting the file into /usr/local/lib, /usr/lib, and /lib, and the program still can't find it.  i also did the set LD_LIBRARY_PATH thing, which didn't work either.  on the other hand, if i actually compile the whole gcc-3.3.6 program (which comes with libstdc++.so.5), it will then find it.  but compiling gcc-3.3.6 evidently causes some issues, so i'm trying to find a different way to install it01:48
aplundAAA: not sure if that's quite right... you only really _need_ to do that if an old version is pointed to in the cache.01:49

DasEibnave: you want to image a drive to a usb drive as iso ?01:50
BitSprocketThere are plenty.  You don't have to worry about deleting the recovery partition because the restore disks will put it all back to factory settings for you.  I'll look for an imaging tool for you.01:50
Jon--DasEi: Well, it's an NTFS volume, not my partition with UB. It comes up with "Error mounting /media/ACER *my C:\ from win*", press S to skip, M for manually recovery. mount /dev/sda3 /media/ACER works fine, it's some check Ubuntu is doing on boot for drive consistency that got broken with chkdsk01:51
toolbearaplund: sorry, i'm not familiar with ldd.  how to use it (in this context)?01:51
DasEiJon--: ubuntu still boots ?01:51

BitSprocketbnave, here ya go: http://www.partimage.org/Main_Page01:51
bnaveBitSprocket: thanks, I'll take a look at that.  Appreciate the help and sorry again for the spamming01:52
DasEiJon--:that's not so sure if you resized it's partitions, and UB is ext I assume ?01:52
toolbearaplund: it says "not a dynamic executable".01:52
Jon--DasEi: ext4 I believe yes.01:53

BitSprocketbnave, here's one that's ready to go as a bootable image: http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page01:53
toolbearaplund: "ldd ./install.sh"01:53
aplundright... that isn't a dynamicly linked executable01:53
DasEiJon--: to check this, boot a live cd and run a fsck/e2fsck on the UNMOUNTED ub-system01:53
Jon--DasEi: alright. I'll try that later01:53
DasEiJon--: for the ntfs part have the win unmounted and have a look into ntfs-progs01:54
bnaveBitSprocket: ok...i've used system rescue cd before, but I didn't realize that it had a disk imager built into it.  Thanks!01:54
ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot01:54
DasEiJon--: the _f -r now, doesn't work no more, use a live cd01:54
aplundtoolbear: so you are trying to install this from source?01:54
Jon--DasEi: Hmm?01:55
aplundtoolbear: and ./configure didn't work for you? or it doesn't have a ./configure?01:55
toolbearaplund: doesn't have ./configure.  this is intel's compiler, and unfortunately it's not open source.01:55

Jon--DasEi: I can't do this from Ubuntu?01:56
aplundtoolbear: and running the install script fails by telling you that it cannot load libstdc++.5 ?01:56
Jon--DasEi: If the NTFS partition is unmounted?01:56
DasEiJon--: NO!!01:56
AAAtoolbear  so your problem is the INSTALLER wants that file, correct?01:56
Jon--DasEi: ... why not? We're talking about an NTFS partition here, not the ext4 one.01:56
DasEiJon--:if you want to check the ext4, is MUST NOT be moounted, for the win-part use ntfs-progs01:57
Jon--DasEi: The ext4 has no errors. It's the NTFS for Windows. I have two NTFS partitions. One checks and mounts fine, the other does not after windows ran a chkdsk on that partition.01:57
Sheepherdi tried to install the catalyst drivers like described here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9475983&postcount=6 but now  fglrxinfo returns "Segmentation fault"01:57

toolbearaplund: yeah.  well, thanks for your help.  at least i have a better idea of what it is i'm dealing with.01:59
AAAtoolbear  and the install still breaks after exporting tht path? with the same error?01:59
Jon--DasEi: Now it reports issues mounting on boot, but I can mount it with "sudo mount /dev/sdahere /media/ACER" myself manually. It must be checking something on boot, some ID or something that isn't matching?01:59
aplundtoolbear: you'll need to figure out exactly which exectuabel in the script is having trouble to nail this.01:59
toolbearAAA: yep, as if i had done nothing differently01:59
toolbearaplund: is it possible that a binary executable can search for a library without being "dynamically linked" to it?02:00
DasEiJon--: that's a question for #windows then02:00
AAAtoolbear  I know aplund doesn't think it wise, but it may be looking for it in a set path like /usr/lib.  I'd try if it were me, but that's me.02:00

wally__it's nVidia Corporation NV44A [GeForce 6200] (rev a1)02:03

Jon--DasEi: Windows boots fine. Ubuntu doesn't autmount it. On boot, purple screen 10.04, says "Cannot mount /media/ACER. Press S to skip or M to do so manually" mount /dev/sdahere /media/ACER works great. It must be doing something that it's choking up on. Checking an ID or something?02:03

DasEiwally__: system > hardwwaredrivers02:04
aplundtoolbear: that may be true.02:04
DasEiJon--: yesss... you changed the partition, so it's blkid has changed, too02:04

wally__quick check on that?02:23

Ganymede_where can i go from here?02:35
DasEiwally__: to be honest I use win mostly for gamin, but succesfull ran few games on linux, too, ram could be an issue, if you run lot's of background tasks02:35
aplundgbear14275: I guess you can check it's effeictveness by "sysctl <variable>"02:35

GanymedeAAA, would you happen to know where in the filesystem the UUID is stored? if so, i can look at though a hexdump and compare it with the UUID in an old fstab to indeed verify that it is XFS02:45
gbear14275how can I query a hostname from bash?02:45
AAAGanymede  does hdparm -i /dev/hdc give you that?02:46

Radiohey, how do I move or disable the notifications that appear in the upper right of my screen?02:47
gbear14275mmomjian: sorry, asked before I tried thanks02:47
Radiolike what application handles it02:47
GanymedeAAA, nope, hdparm is mostly hardware stuff and doesn't care about what data is on the disk. lshw does not locate a UUID...probably because it doesn't see the magic number for XFS so it doesn't know where to look for the UUID02:47

con-manso I have this folder on my desktop that will not got away. I have tried "sudo rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty <folder name>"03:50

Valkyriecon-man, But, it comes back?03:50
con-manbut the folder is still on the dkestop03:50
Quozlwise_crypt: thanks.03:50
AAAcon-man  the file is file/dir is probably in use then03:50
Valkyriecon-man, Have you tried refreshing? I think Ubuntu still uses nautilus03:50

NitsugaAAA, is that possible con linux?03:50
con-manValkyrie, lol yup03:50
Valkyriecon-man, You've tried refreshing?03:51
AAAcon-man  oh, the command returns a newline? hrm.03:51
ValkyrieMy onl advice would be to pkill nautilus. And, restart it03:51
ValkyrieThat *should* fix the problem.03:51
NitsugaAAA, i've never seen a "in use" warnin in linux, unless i've mounted something there, or from there03:51
con-mancon-man@con-man-desktop:~/Desktop$ sudo rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty r8168-8.018.00/03:51
AAANitsuga  yes. you can not delete a file that is in use. it may -look- like you did, but it is still there until the process owning it dies03:51

nUboon2Agecan I get help with gpg?  I'm trying to enter my OpenPGP keys into launchpad.  I get the encrypted e-mail and copy the relevant text to a file. When I run $ gpg --decrypt pgpkeys.txt it responds...03:53
con-manAAA its an empty folder with a folder in it that is also empty03:53
Nitsugacon-man, -r = recursive -f = force deletion03:53
derekshey all, might not be in the right place for this, but let me know. i am interested in setting up a linux box in my house to do dns, authentication (ldap), posibly NAS, etc. Ideally, want to run on a small atom machine. Any easy to use Small Business distros you knwo of? maybe one with a nice web UI?   built on ubuntu? I need it to replace an old windows box...03:53
con-manAAA, so what could be using it03:53
AAAValkyrie  take this example. 4G iso. cdrecord is doing something with it and you try to delete it. the file will appear to go away, but df -h still shows that 4G being used03:53
nUboon2Agegpg: encrypted with ELG-E key, ID 76AC2B76 (newline) gpg: decryption failed: secret key not available03:53
ValkyrieAAA, True. but, I thought that only happened when something was mounted.03:53
ValkyrieLike, you can't eject you sr0 when your disk is mounted03:54
KingOfTheKilldereks: you could check out ClearOS03:54
AAAcon-man  don't know.  if you've done rm -rf like suggested, and it didn't go away then either a) your are rm'n the wrong directory or b) something has a hold of it. use lsof to find out what03:54
dereksKingOfTheKill: lemme look03:54
AAAValkyrie  if it weren't mounted you couldn't rm it03:54
KingOfTheKilldereks: http://www.clearfoundation.com/Software/overview.html03:54

dereksKingOfTheKill: can i pm you (got some questions)03:58
Valkyriecon-man, Anytime03:58
ubottuIn Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.03:58
ValkyrieAAA, 6 is constant reboot, if i'm not mistaen03:58
AAAcon-man  cool03:58
AAAValkyrie  you are mistaken my friend03:59
un214if there is an /etc/inittab what happens03:59
ValkyrieWell, it's constant reboot via Arch03:59
* Valkyrie Shrugs03:59

Pr3nt1c3I'm running x64... can I just use synaptic to d/l all the mythbuntu stuff and 'hey presto' be running mythbuntu? or do I have to install from scratch?04:55
sivikcj_, then as long as you have the virtulzation enabled in bios, you should be able to run a virtual 64 machine without any issues.04:55

ValkyrieI'm only here, because I uber-spammed Ubuntu. And, I'm payign back the stupid Ubuntu community.06:16
AAAmy_haz  google it. it is a very robust wireless driver that sits on top of your hardware driver. kinda sorta06:16
gartralmy_haz: it's also a more idiot-proof way of setting up adhoc networking06:17
EsatGoogle Chrome doesnt work for Ubuntu, is the any alternative explorer?06:17
AAAmy_haz  lets you do cool things like monitor mode, and managed mode at the same time. sniff and surf kinda deal, on one chip. you can also use one chip to act as an AP an a client so you can set up a wifi gateway on your laptop with just one wifi device. awesome, IMHO06:17
bullgard4gartral: You can find that out most easily yourself.06:18

red2kicfotoflo: No problem. Good luck.06:25

fotoflored2kic: btw, how likely is a dist-upgrade to break my running services (mediawiki is the most important one)06:25
fotoflomedia wiki + apache06:25
AAAquentusrex_  why do you need to be alerted? is this a script I assume?06:26
gartralfotoflo: shouldn't cause problems with those packages, but might break any plugins you have for apache06:26
quentusrex_AAA, because the connection is really slow, often takes longer than 2 minutes to connect. I would like to know when it connects.06:26
icerootfotoflo: you mean apt-get dist-upgrade or a upgrade of the distribution to a higher ubuntu-verion?06:26
red2kicfotoflo: I can't say anything as it is difficult to foretell the future. However, you are always advised to make backups first.06:26
quentusrex_rather than sit and wait...06:26
fotofloiceroot: yeah, dist-upgrade06:27
AAAquentusrex_  you can always add a command to the end of your ssh statement like : ssh --options /some/scrpit/that/alerts/you06:27
fotoflogartral: modssl ?06:27
gartralfotoflo: there won't be any changes other than the ubuntu kernal06:27
quentusrex_AAA, I have tried adding "echo test" to the end06:27
quentusrex_AAA, but I never get to see the echo.06:27
AAAquentusrex_  that will only echo test to stdout06:27
ActionParsnipYo yo yo06:27
gartralfotoflo: if it needs recompiling afterwards, apt should take care of it06:28
icerootfotoflo: will there something upgradet related to mediawiki with apt-get dist-upgrade? you can simulate what will upgrade with sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -s06:28
AAAquentusrex_  first figure out how you want to be alerted. then put that in a script on the host06:28
quentusrex_AAA, I want to know locally when the script is connected to the remote system.06:28
AAAquentusrex_  so a bell or something?06:28

AAAquentusrex_  I don't fully grok your options. looks like you are binding to a local port before ssh and using mild compression.  does that work for you?  maybe add -vvv to debug and pastebin06:31

ActionParsnip!latest | bullgard406:33
ubottubullgard4: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports.06:33
toastedmilkActionParsnip, agreed, and I suppose an apology is in order for my laziness.06:33
quentusrex_the 'N' prevents a command from being run, but holds the tunnel open.06:33

red2kicfotoflo: What are you on and what are you looking for? Why the needs to update?06:35
AAAquentusrex_  hrm. so the reason you want an alert is because it takes so long to connect, right?  why not fix the connection problem instead?  I mean unless you are connecting to china via 56k or something, 2m for ssh to connect is crazy06:36
ActionParsnipdi||itante: wish more folk had that mentality :(06:37
fotoflored2kic: Privoxy version 3.0.8 - newest is 3.0.16, my version supports socks4 and 4a, but I use a tunnel - aka socks506:37

quentusrex_it's a large business network06:37
quentusrex_and I'm trying to trouble shoot a remote office06:37
quentusrex_but it is only accessable through the main company network, over satellite, then microwave.06:38
AAAquentusrex_  then I would suggest altering your QoS to give ssh high priortity.  I don't have a clever/hackish solution for your 'bell' issue however.06:38
quentusrex_ssh -C2Tvv -D 8080  works just fine06:38
AAAquentusrex_  that being said, it is intriguing I'll keep thinking on it ;)O06:38
quentusrex_it gives transfer stats06:38
ActionParsnipquentusrex_: mplayer can run at cli so have it play an mp3. Assuming you have sound setup etc06:39

quentusrex_ActionParsnip, but is there a way to do that and be able to ctrl+c to close the tunnel?06:39

dragon-eyeAAA, sometime i see after scan server or computer that some port number is filtered06:53
brickyred2kic: im actually going to do that with this PC lol06:53
dragon-eyeAAA, sometime i see after scan server or computer that some port number is filtered but i can not understand what is the filtered port06:54
aj5555olskolirc: no!06:54
AAAdragon-eye  that means a firewall of some sort is restricting acess to that port and you just alerted the admin you were scanning it06:54
red2kicbricky: Nice! :306:54
dragon-eyeAAA, block?06:55
AAAdragon-eye  yes. to filter means to block06:55

AAAdragon-eye  do you have root on the firewall?06:59
malgorathHi I was hoping someone could help me with my Hi-def audio card and 10.04 Ubuntu.  It does not see it though I have this entry in lspci:04:00.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)06:59
AAAdragon-eye  and is this firewall ubuntu?07:00
dragon-eyeAAA, yeah but which firewall (iptables)?07:00
AAAdragon-eye  you'll need to be more specific about your setup. yes, iptables will allow you to 'filter' ports on your ubuntu box07:01
dragon-eyeAAA, then what will be command or option only?07:01
AAAdragon-eye  iptables is VERY complex and this is not the best forum to discuss iptables rules. that and I am no iptables genius07:02
dragon-eyeAAA, ok07:02
CaptainTrek!ufw | dragon-eye, this might hellp you a little.07:02
ubottudragon-eye, this might hellp you a little.: Ubuntu, 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.07:02
AAAdragon-eye  maybe some of the other folks have other suggestions for you07:03

ubottufahmad: Boot options: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions - To add/remove startup services, you can use the package 'bum', or update-rc.d - To add your own startup scripts, use /etc/rc.local - See also !grub and !dualboot - Making a boot floppy: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/BootFloppy - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SmartBootManagerHowto07:15
fahmadundecim: apache, vsftpd and it even not run /etc/rc.local07:15
undecimEvaLuaTe: There should be an option in the wicd GUI.07:16
LaibschAnybody around here use Ubuntu One to share files with somebody else?  I am (sorry, using a different provider is not an option for reasons beyond my control).  Somebody shared a folder with me.07:16
LaibschI can see it in the web interface, but the "Ubuntu One" folder on my computer remains unchanged for hours.  Should I wait a little longer?07:16

fahmadundecim: okay sir when you get time lemme know what to do meanwhile i am looking for document which have been provided ...07:17
fahmadActionParsnip: i am looking into this07:17
undecimfahmad: Have you ever had those services start, or is it a recent problem?07:17
moza(i don't want to exclude the possibility of changing them later on, to enable dual boot to test other OS like freebsd or things like this).07:17
AAAtripelb  that is your entire xorg.conf?07:18
fahmadwhen i initially installed that it was working fine ...07:18
fahmadbut not these days ...07:18
fahmadfor some reason07:18
undecimfahmad: They both stopped at the same boot, or started failing one at a time?07:18
fahmadrcconf shows that it will be started on boot time ...07:18
fahmadwell its not starting at boot time but stopping on boot time ...07:19
* AAA just notices the xorg.conf files are way different in 10.407:20
fahmadi can see apache2, bind9, darkstat, exim4, mysql, mysql-ndb, mysql-ndb-mgm, networking, nginx, ntop, psad, ssh, vsftpd in rc3.d07:20
fahmadbut its not working07:20
ActionParsnipFahmad: look in the logs for the service. See if it starts then dies07:20
undecimfahmad: Do you get any messages about the services when you are booting? About the services starting or failing to start?07:20
fahmadwell i need to go to see console for that ...07:20
tripelbaaa yes it is my entire xorg.conf (unless I left the comments in it for reference) -- I looked up config file in google but got no-where.07:20
tripelbaaa I have made a decision to stay with 9.10 for now07:20
undecimfahmad: or just take ActionParsnip's advice and look at the log files07:21
ActionParsnipAaa: I have one backed up from ages ago which I just restore in new installs. Makes life easier :)07:21

AAAActionParsnip  the structure is much different than what I'm used to now. heh, it just works these days. I don't have to spend an entire day making X work any more. yay! but boo for not noticing the changes :(07:22
undecimfahmad: In Lucid, apache logs are in /var/log/apache2. Should be the same in hardy07:23
dfcnvthow do I clean up inside /var/log?? I often do something like this.. "rm -rf *.gz" & "rm -rf *.0"07:23
chu__Hey guys, nearly finished re-installing everything, but a slight problem. Everytime I reboot, it resets something, I have to active the window manager through the appearence dialog everytime. Is anyone familiar with this?07:23

ActionParsnipAaa: yeah udev is pretty special. Just a shame it doesn't always get it right and there's no skeleton file for users to mess with :(07:23
AAAdfcnvt  cron should clean and rotate those for you07:23
fahmadi think i need to reboot again if i need to look into this information07:23
EvaLuaTeundecim, also, 'sudo apt-get install dhcpd' says there's no such package. Any idea what package contains dhcpd?07:23
fahmadand if i reboot i might get dc because i am using it as gw07:23

Ic3_PI need some help.  I just installed the latest version of ubuntu and it doesnt recognize my network cards or my usb adpater.  Can you guys help?07:30

thecubedoes anyone know how i can stop ubuntu from booting up in "high resolution" or X mode? i want my ubuntu box to boot up like one of those old school linux/unix box w/out X and just a terminal login07:56
Maks1сосите суки!07:56
AAA[Screamo]  you can check what you have with something like $ dpkg -l | grep font07:56
Maks1нашёл нах07:57
AAAthecube  you can always just ctrl-alt-f1 and use a VT which will look like your old school box07:57
[Screamo]AAA i changed them, but now i want to change back and dont remember wich ones07:57
thecubeAAA: thanks, is there a way not to start X? or its "native" now?07:58

jaemStill stuck?08:00
ManDayundecim, say again?08:00
ManDayundecim, what is the last thing you meant?08:01
AAAede  that is a VT. most *nix system have 6 or 7. if you ctrl-alt-f8, or maybe f7... you'll find the VT that has your X or as you like to say, not old school setup ;)08:01
jaemthecube, Yes, it's possible, but I don't know how to do it on Ubuntu these days (what with UpStart being used).08:01
undecimManDay: Get an error from the server (request a non-existent file) and look at the first line in the source of that page.08:01
jaemAAA, I think thecube wants to actually prevent X from starting, period.  e.g. boot into runlevel 308:01
edeyeah im new to linux :P08:01
jaem...or which runlevel Ubuntu uses.08:02
ManDayundecim, I know what you are getting at and I assume that yes, this is an error page the Java applet sees - but why...08:02

ManDaytamper data plugin, ill take a look thanks08:03
AAAthecube  yes there is a way. back in the day, we used to boot to runlevel 2 for no X.  I'd need to read the docs to figure out how to do it today. sorry08:03
ManDayundecim, you sure that works with JAVA ? It's not just a Firebug clone for Ajax?08:04

Flannelfahmad: Hmm, that link doesn't work.  well, it does, but that's the wrong server-upgrade one, you need to use the one further down on the page, under the 8.04 -> 10.04 one08:09
ManDayundecim, unless I'm using the plugin wrongly TamperData does not account for what JAVA does08:10
AAAriktking  you'll have to look and see. I have no idea, I've never heard of your program. but that is the place for you to start looking :)08:10
riktkingAAA, thanks08:10
ManDayundecim, I sure could find other ways to figure that out08:10
undecimManDay: Well, you could try using wireshark, then, which will definitely catch Java traffic.08:10
AAAriktking  you can search anything. you can also strengthen your search with grep. ex. :: apt-cache search netbook | grep -i music08:11
surendraAAA: How to install and update new softwares in my home system .. which is not having internet .. i have install 10.04 desktop in home08:11
riktkingAAA, nice tip, thanks08:11

riktkingAAA, i know, there is soo much junk on this laptop due to apt-get lol08:13
AAAsurendra  but if the 10.4 cd you have is not newer than the one you installed, the point is moot08:13
HermanDE_ManDay, Have you tried wireshark for sniffing?08:13
ManDayHermanDE, undecim just named that - sorry for reaksing - I thought wireshark was a general purpose sniffer08:14
AAAriktking  then you need to run man on all the apt-<tab> stuff on your system and get more addicted :)08:14

brickyman I love linux bwhahahaa ! finding stuff out is just like finding money08:50
AAAElwell  I _think_ that is kinda the point of kinit. that being said I'm sure you can have bash and kerb auth at the same time as you login. it may require server config changes. not positive08:50
smilyits installed and everything08:50
HermanDE_smily, Are you running the standard GNOME?08:50

HermanDE_Elwell, I like the first line.  :)08:57
AAAsmily  what is the iface name of your wifi?  can you do $ iwconfig wlan0 ?08:57

HermanDE_AAA, Depends on the WIFI adapter....  Some want HEX, others want ASCII...  Some systems added a longer (NON-Standard) WEP.....09:01

zingbatsdamian: where 2 and 1 are both files I assume09:02
MrEgg964Hi all. How do I boot into recovery mode with Lucid?09:02
damianfile is file :P09:02
HermanDE_AAA, That is one possibility why most WEP systems are easy to crack...  the user kept the length to 8 hex chars....09:02
damian2/1 are representation of stdout and stderr; actually leave them as 2 and 109:02
MMKahono suck directory or file when i do that09:02
damianunless it doesn't wokr, then swap them around09:02
AAAHermanDE_  hrm. preshared key = ascii ; 64wep key = 10 hex char -- right?09:02
zingbatsdamian: So what if I want to output both 1 and 2?09:02
smilyand it was working on widowns though09:03
zingbatsIE: stdout and stderr09:03
damianthink of it like this, zingbats..09:03
AAAMrEgg964  single at the grub prompt09:03
jaemHermanDE, Heh, yeah... that reminds me of the similar situation with Garage door remotes.  I'm pretty sure they still sell models with an 8-bit key set with a DIPswitch. >_<09:03
jaemWEP is pretty useless.09:03
damian[command] > [file] [strerr] > [stdout]09:03
jaemIf anything, it's probably almost counterproductive these days.09:03
HermanDE_AAA, Back in the 11b days, everybody was experimenting....  Some followed the standard to the letter....  Other "Enhanced" the security....09:03
AAAjaem  locks are for honest people.09:03
damianeverything from 'command' goes into 'file', everything from 'stderr' goes into 'stdout'09:03
zingbatsdamian: Ok. Thanks09:03
damianso if there's an error, it'll go to your file :D09:04
MrEgg964AAA: I don't even get grub menu (this was easy with grub1, but I'm not familiar with grub2)09:04
HermanDE_It is the "Enhanced" systems that helped with the WPA standards.....09:04
AAAHermanDE_  do you think this user has a card with fw that old? really?09:04
jaemAAA, yes, but at least with an Open AP, you're not screaming to anyone nearby "I don't know about network security" as loudly.09:04
damianso; tar zxvf yourtar.tar > youroutput.log 2>109:04
HermanDE_AAA, Don't know....09:04
AAAMrEgg964  when you reboot your box. <tab> when it starts to load and change the grub line to single09:04

oCean_IsUp: that would do09:24
IsUpchmod needed09:25
AAAIsUp  you need to mount it to a current directory. udev will do this for you, but I don't have those details. for a temporary solution you can mount it as I described09:25

mek8630AAA: hey sorry to bug you while you are busy but what is the diff between ext4 and ext3 and so on?09:26
IsUpusually i was mounting my disks to /abc /xyz09:26
oCean_IsUp: mkdir /data, then edit /etc/fstab. Preferred way is to use the UUID of the partition09:26
oCean_IsUp: command: sudo blkid, then find your drive and copy the UUID09:26
AAAmek8630  ext3 is ext3 with a journal, more overhead. ext4 is simple an extension of ext309:26
IsUp/dev/sdb1: UUID="c797582e-9d59-4d4d-b14e-d08f69618783" SEC_TYPE="ext2" TYPE="ext3"09:27
AAAIsUp  ext3 is ext2, sorry09:27
AAAIsUp  that should be mountable09:27

rumpsyhey, guys09:27
IsUpext4 or ext3?09:28
IsUpi did 'mkfs.ext3'09:28

oCean_IsUp: whatever you choose to format the disk with. In your case ext3 - it'll be fine09:29

foolguyhey, why is it taking ubuntu forever to eject my flash drive?11:01
sebsebseblikeu: anyway that command, gives AVI, WMV, MP3, and so on suport11:01
Walrus23/dev/sda1 is windows, /dev/sda2 is ubuntu, /dev/sda3 is fedora, and /dev/sda4 is a shared swap11:01
BeyecixramdWalrus23: then Windows is called hda(0,1) iirc11:02
BeyecixramdWalrus23: in GRUB11:02
Walrus23i'll check the grub config file11:02
Walrus23<< system admin11:02
Walrus23you may talk geek to me, i understand :P11:02
AAA foolguy maybe it is writing the data you cp to it before eject?11:02
BeyecixramdWalrus23: okay, okay :)11:02
Walrus23:/ i'm lost with this new grub11:04
sebsebsebWalrus23: yep Grub 2 sucks11:04
Walrus23i knew the old one well, this one i'm glazed over11:04
sebsebseb!grub2 | Walrus2311:04
ubottuWalrus23: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub211:04
Walrus23i think i'll still need to do a fixmbr with windows :/11:04
sebsebsebWalrus23: can also get help with Grub2 in #grub11:05
Walrus23i can't rebuild that i have got alot of stuff there11:05
Walrus23is there a #fedora as well ?11:05
sebsebsebWalrus23: yes11:05
Mirrakorhello fellow bunties - my ubuntu in the virtual machine can't resolve adresses anymore as it seems11:05
sebsebsebWalrus23: also don't use Windows online if you can avoide it :) security reasons11:05
Lazy^Anyone here who knows how to alter arp-tables refresh time11:05
Walrus23i'm a system admin, i use antivirus :P11:05
AAAMirrakor  have you checked the $ route -n and the $ cat /etc/resolv.conf on that host11:06
Mirrakorguess I removed something dns/resolv related11:06
lapion-IIWalrus23, virgin install of lucid lynx has some issues with ntfs-bootable partitions, install all updates and then update grub11:06
MirrakorAAA: IP-Adresses are no problem, just names11:06
sebsebsebWalrus23: anti virus won't protect your Windows install properly,  however talking about this here, is off topic11:06
elyobHi, trying to run a script every time *anyone* logs in using shell. I have a line in /etc/bash.bashrc, but on one Debian server it's not getting picked up. Mostly my Ubuntu works okay. Should I be looking at .profile instead?11:06
jpdsMirrakor: dig @your.name.server domain.com11:06
liveHi, is there a way to fix this partition table http://paste.ubuntu.com/451532/ without deleting anything?11:06
MirrakorAAA: it says Generated by NetworkManager11:07
jpdsMirrakor: Then you have no nameservers specified.11:07
AAAMirrakor  sounds like you need to edit your /etc/resolv.conf. I suggest $ echo "nameserver" > /etc/resolv.conf to test. you'll want a second and tertiary nameserver command eventually11:08
AAAMirrakor  and network-manager will overwrite that file. you typically get DNS from the DHCP server11:08
Mirrakormy router does the dns stuff, so I'll just echo that in - hope it works - I do have to restart the network afterwards?11:08
mushy1what is the .dmrc file for11:09
AAAMirrakor  no restart. you _may_ choose to use >> vs > to APPEND that nameserver line instead of replace what is there. your call11:09
AAAmushy1  .*rc files are generally for configuring your app11:10
mushy1AAA and in this case?11:10
AAAmushy1  dm refers to some app you have, I don't know which one.11:10
AAAmushy1  less .dmrc and look at it. clues?11:11
MirrakorAAA: it still says unknown host11:11
llutzmushy1: iirc "display manager" (gdm?)11:11
mushy1AAA type cat .dmrc11:11
AAAMirrakor  put you can $ ping ? if so, pastebin your /etc/resolv.conf11:12
mushy1llutz, display manager is what? like the login screen?11:12
llutzmushy1: thats it11:12
MirrakorAAA: yes that works11:12
mushy1llutz, so it does not effect the current window manager? if not which file does11:12
AAAmushy1  I don't know what that dotfile does. dotfiles are commonly used for user specific confgs11:12
MirrakorAAA: seems like networkmanager overwrote that file again11:13
AAAMirrakor  do you adming the dhcp server?11:13
AAAMirrakor  and please pastebin your resolv.conf11:13
bullgard4palimsest > Local Storage > PATA Host Adapter > 160 GB Hard Disk > (Drive) > Benchmark > (Benchmark) shows a green scatter diagram. What does the abscissa "100%" mean?11:13
bullgard4palimpsest > Local Storage > PATA Host Adapter > 160 GB Hard Disk > (Drive) > Benchmark > (Benchmark) shows a green scatter diagram. What does the abscissa "100%" mean?11:13
llutzmushy1: window manager and display manager are different things. so it shouldn't effect your wm11:14
MirrakorAAA: it works now - the resolv.conf had only the line "# Generated by NetworkManager"11:14
mushy1llutz, i ask because cat .dmrc shows Session=xfce11:14
mushy1it shows that and the keyboard language11:15
llutzmushy1: thats the session to be loaded by default when logging in11:15
AAAMirrakor  be forewarned. it will always overwrite that file.11:15
llutzmushy1: those things, you can select/set at login-screen11:15
Mirrakornow I set Networkmanager to only get adresses from dhcp, and set the dns-adresse myself11:15
mushy1llutz then how is it getting the info on what display manager to use11:15
Mirrakorwithin Networkmanager11:15
AAAMirrakor  no habla GUI11:15
mushy1i know u can select them there but i want to know where it all is stored11:16
mushy1so i can write useful applications but i am getting my bearings on this ubuntu stuffs11:16
AAAmushy1  /etc/resolv.conf is where the DNS train stops second. after looking for google.com in /etc/hosts it will look in resolv.conf11:17
llutzmushy1: sorry, i don't know much about gdm (dm in general)11:17
willwork4fooHi all - I'm running Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.04 (fully patched), and I'm having a bit of difficulty with an SD card on my netbook. dmesg reports that the system has seen the drive when I plug it in, but it doesn't assign it a device node in /dev and fdisk -l doesn't show anything up. It is showing up as a USB storage device in lsusb however. Google and Ubuntu forums have not proven much use11:17
willwork4fooCan anyone suggest how I might find out how to format and use this SD card?11:18
willwork4fooit's a class 6 8GB SD card, if that makes any difference11:18
mushy1willwork4foo, it is not one of those sd cards with software password is it11:18
willwork4foomushy1, nope. it's a standard TDK class 6 SD card11:18
willwork4foonot some crazy secure thing11:18
willwork4fooany ideas on that?11:19
mushy1willwork4foo, what is your sd card connected through11:19
safeycan I ask a question about tc/netem tool?11:20
phlak_user!ask| safey11:20
ubottusafey: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)11:20
willwork4foomushy1, internal SD card slot on the netbook11:20
AAAwillwork4foo  can you post the $ lsusb into?11:20
willwork4foolsusb gives this for it: Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0cf2:6250 ENE Technology, Inc.11:20
mushy1dont ask to ask because when you ask to ask we then have to nearly beg you to ask and it makes you think we will know how to help before you even ask so dont ask to ask11:20
elyobHi, trying to run a script every time *anyone* logs in using shell. I have a line in /etc/bash.bashrc, but on one Debian server it's not getting picked up. Mostly my Ubuntu works okay. Should I be looking at .profile instead?11:21

phlak_userelyob: /etc/profile in debian works fine11:22
safeyI'm trying to use the tc/netem tool in order to drop all packets "incoming" from a certain IP address. This doesn't work actually, although I'm able to drop all packets flowing "to" a certain IP address. Any idea about the commands to us in case of incoming packets?11:22
zacharysmithhi i am buying a laptop and it says  the memory supported is 4GB - which says it requires 64bit OS11:23
zacharysmithdoes this mean I can't use 32bit Ubuntu on it?11:23
phlak_usersafey: wouldnt it be easier to use iptables for this?11:23
drizzt_i've run grep but it seems to be hanged, what to do??11:23
willwork4fooAAA, http://pastebin.com/URUGDU5f11:23
bazhangzacharysmith, sure you can, just use the pae kernel to see all 4GB11:23
phlak_userdrizzt_: ctl+c11:23
Beyecixramdzacharysmith: no, it means that if you use 32 bit ubuntu, you will only be able to access 3 Gb of your memory, with a normal kernel11:23
AAAelyob  make sure the users are $ source /the/profile/you/intend11:23
drizzt_but if I press ^C it will be aborted11:23
Beyecixramdzacharysmith: but like bazhang, you can use a PAE kernel to get all the memory available11:23
kuttanHello , I have ubuntu installed on 40GB disk , can I convert this to Virtualbox image ?11:24
zacharysmithwhat is PAE?11:24
drizzt_is there a way to know what it is doing?11:24
mushy1zacharysmith, i think max seen will be 3gb? if you use 32bit os or you can use a 64bit os11:24
bazhangkuttan, you might also try in #vbox11:24
zacharysmithso i could use 64bit U?11:24
willwork4foozacharysmith, Processor Address Emulation or something11:24
kuttan<bazhang> Thanks a lot , let me check with them11:24
mushy1Beyecixramd, so what is a PAE kernel11:25
AAAwillwork4foo  ok. for starters, this tells us what we already know :: Device Status:     0x000011:25
drizzt_zacharysmith, Physical Address Extension11:25
bullgard4palimpsest > Local Storage > PATA Host Adapter > 160 GB Hard Disk > (Drive) > Benchmark > (Benchmark) shows a green scatter diagram. What does mean on the abscissa "100%"?11:25
Beyecixramdmushy1: Physical Address Extension... it's like.. a 32 bit kernel with 64 bit features11:25
willwork4foowhich means what?11:25
Beyecixramdwillwork4foo: google it, please :)11:26
AAAwillwork4foo  and here is a recent post I found for that device :( https://lists.one-eyed-alien.net/pipermail/usb-storage/2010-April/005198.html11:26
mushy1Beyecixramd, why wouldnt he just use a 64bit os? is there a downside to that? is the the software that may not work thats the problem11:26
drizzt_is there a way to tell what my grep process is doing right now?11:26
AAAwillwork4foo  has it worked with ubuntu previously?11:26
Beyecixramdmushy1: idk, but he maybe wants a decent native flash and he also wants to wineize some 32 bit apps11:26
loopidityhow to restart all the usb ports without restarting the computer?11:27
zacharysmithif the laptop says it does DVD RW does that mean it wont burn cds?11:27
bazhangzacharysmith, no, it will burn them fine11:27
Beyecixramdloopidity: not possible afaik11:27
zacharysmithbazhag, they stopped using 'DVDCD RW'?11:28
loopiditycause the way my usb internet(hdspa, utms) works is, i start the connection but doesnt get connected, then I restart the computer, it works11:28
bazhangzacharysmith, its inclusive, so it will burn them11:28
AAAloopidity  if you unplug all your usb stuff it will 'reset'. the only way to you your usbhost bus to truly reset is a reboot11:28
zacharysmithbazhag, ty11:29
Beyecixramdloopidity: replug in your devices11:29
bazhangdeg12, you are here already11:29
loopiditydoesnt help, for some reason :(11:29
willwork4fooAAA, No. Bugger - looks like the ENE card reader doesn't work.11:29
=== dieInstanz1 is now known as dieInstanz
loopidityits annoying, that only restart works11:29
willwork4fooI've just spent £25 on a class 6 SD card that I can't use.11:29
Beyecixramdloopidity: why don't you want to restart?11:29
AAAwillwork4foo  yah. the upside is, less and less devices are now NOT compatible :)11:30
loopidityits annoying, isnt it, hoping theres a soln11:30

wildbatquestion~ can anyone know how to fix the lid button? it is not working correctly, when pressed the screen off for 0.5sec and back on, as well as when released. any clue?11:30

mushy1does apple OSX run linux apps?11:30
Steven___hey guys. i'm very new on the vhost stuff. in plesk and virtuozzo i see that i'm almost out of memory. how can i check what processes eat up the memory?11:30
Beyecixramdmushy1: not linux, yes unix11:30
Beyecixramdmushy1: and since most linux apps are open sourced, yep11:30
AAAwillwork4foo  depending on how bad you want this to work. you _may_ be able to find fresh kernel sources to help you11:30
willwork4fooAAA, nah - I'll try again when 10.10 comes out, maybe it'll work then11:31
drizzt_mushy1, if you recompile them, most do11:31
willwork4foono rush11:31
mushy1does apple use something similar to freebsds ports system?11:31
AAAwillwork4foo  my point exactly. if it will work in 10.10, it will work now with some hackery ;)11:31
willwork4fooIt's just something I'd like to be able to do - boot my netbook off an SDHC card and not mount the internal drive unless I want something from it11:31
bazhangmushy1, ask in an apple channel or #ubuntu-offtopic11:32
Beyecixramdmushy1: apple? you must be kiddin11:32
willwork4fooAAA, my days of wanting to spend hours doing hackery are kinda gone.... I'm happy to wait a few months, and test it again when 10.10 UNE comes out11:32
willwork4foomushy1, yeah, check out macports11:32
mushy1well i want to start writing some software and i want to know if it will work with apple11:32
AAAwillwork4foo  honestly. my first impression was you needed help with SLC. that is what drew my attention :) always glad to help thought11:32
mushy1i will research further when it is not 5:30am11:32
Beyecixramdmushy1: just write it for UNIX11:32
llutzwillwork4foo: have you tried booting with the card inserted? my aao531 has 2 card-slots, and in one of them it only recognizes cards which are present at boottime.11:32
willwork4fooAAA, :-) Your help was very much appreciated too! :)11:33
Beyecixramdmushy1: it will work on Apple, Linux and Windows11:33
bazhangmushy1, this is Ubuntu support, please keep it on topic11:33
Steven___hey guys. i'm very new on the vhost stuff. in plesk and virtuozzo i see that i'm almost out of memory. how can i check what processes eat up the memory?11:33

Weust`hi, i would like to make a backup to an external disk @ work, but i don't trust it, what is the advised way to make a encrypted file container (which i can mount and backup to) ?11:33
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, not every sd card can be used as a bootable device11:33
mushy1bazhang i am using ubuntu and i will be writing software on this machine that is really close to topic11:33
willwork4foolapion-II, yeah I'm discovering that :(11:33
bazhangmushy1, close but no cigar11:33
willwork4foonever mind!11:34
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, not every sd-card-slot can be booted of off, depends on hardware/bios11:34
mushy1i guess discussing this years e3 conferences is out of the question ]=11:34
comsasteven____ top11:34
willwork4foolapion-II, I'm not even sure this BIOS will boot from SD, but I guess it was worth a shout.11:34
bazhangmushy1, fine in the #ubuntu-offtopic CHAT channel11:34
AAAmushy1  did the e3 conference mention the ubunto road map? =p11:35
willwork4fooI'm happy to wait until the reader is supported by stock Ubuntu though!11:35
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, I have however booted from a sd card using an external usb2sb adaptor11:35
AAAwillwork4foo  bah. live a little!11:35
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, *usb2sd11:35
willwork4fooAAA, got work to do! I am tempted by the hackery, but I know it would eat my whole day and I need to get stuff done11:36
AAAwillwork4foo  the feeling of accomplishment will be grand, I attest11:36
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, I have in the past installed directly to usb with a regualer install..11:36

willwork4fooAAA, I know - I did an embedded systems degree! :-) I've written kernel drivers before now - just not for a good few years, and the skills are rusty11:36
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, sometimes a cold-start doesn't recognise all external devices as bootable11:37
willwork4foomeh. I only originally wanted to do it because the 320GB internal drive I've slapped into this netbook is a bit juice-hungry11:37
AAAwillwork4foo  stop it with the excuses already. hack the planet! "it's in that place where I put that one thing that one time"11:37
willwork4fooand thinking if I could boot off an SD card and not mount the internal drive, I'd save some power11:37
lapion-IIwillwork4foo, try warmbooting ( using ctrl-alt del ) and then using the bios-bootdevice-selector11:37

SmokeyDAAA: I don't understand your reply. I was told that it is no use using the shred command to safely remove a file from the harddrive on a journaled filesystem (like ext3(11:54

SkyNetMasterit was just a smiley, like got your point11:55
AAASmokeyD  I highly recommend $ man shred for more detailz11:55
rumpsymaodun: okay :)11:55
bullgard4SmokeyD: man shred: " shred - overwrite a file to hide its contents, and optionally delete it. SYNOPSIS:  shred [OPTION]... FILE... DESCRIPTION: Overwrite the specified FILE(s) repeatedly, in order to make it harder for even very expensive hardware probing to recover the data." The journal mechanism tries to keep a record on all theses processes. This is slowing down the operation extremely.11:55
AAASmokeyD  the you need to attack the inode11:55
AAASmokeyD  $ ls -i will show you the inode that file is using. try rewriting to it a bunch.11:56
AAASmokeyD  just a thought really11:57

flamesex: ateros ar900, like that11:59
zorkmidonbazhang, thank's11:59
SmokeyDAAA, bullgard4: thanks for the help. Indeed the manpage clears it up. ext3 is able to also log file content to the journal, but doesn't in ordered data mode (the default). So I am actually safe11:59
IledenSmokeyD: in case you are at this point only _planning_ on working a file that you need to get rid of, a good solution might be to only use the file on a truecrypt mount - that way you wound't even need to worry about dispensing of the file, since it would be already crypted. But of course, if the file already exists this isn't an opiton.11:59
bazhangGuest51821, sudo dhclient etho then11:59
Guest51821ok ill try that out11:59
