prowerhello :> i'm trying to watch a 1080p video in ubuntu 10.04...it's incredibly choppy even though i have the nvidia drivers installed for my card, and in windows 7 it plays properly :< is there some option in ubuntu that needs to be changed?00:00
macodoyle: search for packages starting with "openoffice.org"00:00
happyfaceprower: try VLC media player00:00
unopdibblego,  calling your script from /etc/rc.local and sudo  e.g.  sudo -u user /path/to/myscript00:00
dibblegounop, ok thanks00:00
prowerhappyface, oh, i did :> as well as totem and just plain mplayer, all three were choppy...now in windows 7 vlc plays it without any problems00:01
happyfaceprower: do you know which video drivers your using?00:01
doylemaco: looks good. Last time I uninstalled ooo it decided to remove every installed program on the computer. This time I made sure to check what was under the untouched category before applying.00:01
prowerhappyface: the nvidia closed-source drivers, version 195.36.24?00:02
p1l0t_When I change /etc/network/interfaces on my ubuntu 9.10 (yes I will upgrade when I fix this) server nothing happens in ifconfig... How do I find out where ifconfig it reading these settings from?00:02
happyfaceprower: mkv file?00:02
unophappyface, I would use screen for this -- it lets you reconnect to sessions.. otherwise look at 'retty' (but this can be buggy).00:02
happyfaceunop: I am using screen, I guess I could just attach to that... hmm00:03
prowerhappyface: mov is the file extension, it's a clip taken from a hi def camcorder :>00:03
unophappyface, yea, screen -d -r session_name00:03
happyfaceprower: have you tried other hd file types?00:03
happyfacethanks unop00:03
prowerhappyface: i tried saving it as mp4, then h264 with avi extension, but they were all pretty much the same00:04

puffBluesKaj: If I understand this properly, this means I won't be able to shrink swap and grow root.01:17
Joshua_Roberts_BluesKaj, I already am in lucid, I am trying to install Doomsday which only has karmic repositories.  I am having an issue with keyring.  It says it can't find it when I use 'sudo apt-get install kees-archive-keyring'  which I copied from the game install site.01:18

Joshua_Roberts_BluesKaj, you have solutions for this?01:20
puffBluesKaj: Is that incorrect?01:20
BluesKajpuff, well how else were doing to make room ? I would delete the swap first then increase the root to 2 g larger then rename the remaining 2g as swap01:20

ZakatharantI was playing a game named "Regnum Online" on my older laptop, running in Hardy.  No problems until the monitor started to go out on me (needs a new cable).  Now I have a newer laptop running Lucid Lynx, and the game says the video card (a newer version of what the old laptop had) is unsupported.  So I know the video card is not too old.  The options are find a better driver, or figure out a download for a DirectX update.  I'm usi01:52

Typos_KingMindVirus:  thereabouts I'd think, not sure, I've heard from someone using iTunes that you can put files in, but can't get them back out, or it won't allow access, it'll only play, not sure how true that claim is01:57
inductiveloadguest54446: it still didn't work , just messed everything up again, and caused the same lack of window title bars and being able to do anytihng, then the problem came back when i reinstalled01:58
MindVirusTypos_King: That claim is true; you cannot copy music back from iTunes. That being said, that is only iTunes, because it is shitty software.01:58
MindVirusTypos_King: That has nothing to do with the problem at hand.01:58

Guest54446inductiveload, maybe replace metacity with xfwm401:59
MindViruspuff: It's just that I know that isn't the problem.01:59
Typos_KingMindVirus:    then it may just be a Rhythmbox access issue, maybe if your reinstall it, it clears out any dependencies discrepancies01:59
dominicdinadaTypos_King: iTunes keeps all the files in a xml format... with randomly generated hashes for the coresponding file,author etc01:59
ExavionJoshua_Roberts: it works extremely well in DOSBox01:59
MindVirusTypos_King: If there are dependency discrepancies, updating my computer (which I do like hourly) would tell me.01:59

MindViruspuff: Playing a local file does the same thing.02:00
abetterswordfishIm not sure how to add spaces into conky02:00
MindVirusIt's a sound driver issue, puff.02:00
puffTypos_King, MindVirus:  As far as itunes, ipods, etc, yeah, when you put music on an ipod, ituens renames the file, possibly reencodes it, and extracts the track details and adds them to a database file on the ipod.  it's possible to extract music files back out, but you usually use a special script/tool to do it.02:00
dominicdinadaMindVirus: thats not exactly a good thing02:00
MindVirusdominicdinada: You'd think, eh?02:00
Typos_KingMindVirus:     I'd not count on that for files integrity checks per se02:00
puffTypos_King, MindVirus: Though I would assume that you could use an id3 tag tool to do the same, by hand.02:00
MindViruspuff: Or just any other iPod management software other than iTunes.02:00
dominicdinadapuff: it doesnt alter the file persay just the filenames to random generated strings02:00
MindVirusTypos_King: You told me to reinstall Rhythmbox....02:00
puffMindVirus: That's what "special script/tool" means :-).  I.e. not "cp"02:01
puffdominicdinada: nope, it can also reencode th efile.02:01
MindViruspuff: cp will still work; you just won't know what file you're downloading.02:01

MindVirusIt's about the software.02:02
MindVirusThe iPod has an embedded MP3 decoder chip as well as AAC.02:03
MindVirusAny MP3 will work.02:03
Typos_KingMindVirus:   maybe your ipod is going south, dunno, I've had mp3 players  go down on me like that, errors when copying files, disk full when not, and after a few usb plugs in/out, kaput02:03
dominicdinadaTherefore it has not re-encoded the file, Furthermore it really is unlawful to do so seeing as when you purchase the song it is yours to do what you want with it02:03
MindVirusOK.02:03

John_AlbertI want to have conky elements on both sides of my screen03:24
John_Albert I've also tried using ${offset}, but that is not working either03:24
SlidingHornJohn_Albert, you gotta give details man...what errors, behaviors, etc...and keep it to one line03:25
RabbitManI was tinkering with multisync.  Do you think rsync is better?  (Goes to check it out)03:25
rwwsnarkster1: you want /dev/urandom. /dev/random blocks when there isn't enough entropy (randomness) in the system, and there sure as heck isn't enough to dd onto a drive.03:25

rmrfslashSo, I just got a Asus K42JV at work. Ubuntu runs abysmally on it. I had a Dell Studio XPS 16 which at first Ubuntu ran terribly, but things gained support over time.... took about 2 years of course. One detail that pretty much sucked from the day I got that machine was the ATI graphics. So we bought this laptop which has Nvidia, which has pretty good reputation on linux and we want to do GPGPU stuff... never realized how hit-or-mi03:46

SpeirosCould the problem be with the reading of my drive be that it is an external drive for a laptop, and I am trying to read it on a desktop?  Should that matter?'03:49
HowardTheDuckbtw the hard drive i'm upgrading to is the same size, just bigger cache, so, i'm not going to need to resize them03:49
rmrfslashOK, so say you get lucky right (holding down shift and grub feels like listening)? Then, you say boot in recovery mode... a whole plethora of garbage is printed to the screen and then the screen goes blank. Fun stuff.03:49
pepeeSlidingHorn, use tab for autocompletion. ex.: slid<TAB>03:50
rmrfslashSo say you actually get really lucky and get to a command prompt i.e. Ubuntu decides finally after a few hours that it actually will boot using low-graphics mode03:50
SlidingHorndoesn't sound like an ubuntu problem then if it's still doing that in recovery mode03:50

pepeeSpeiros, it the disk being recognized as swap/solaris?04:04
h00krmrfslash: Ask your specific question, you'll probably get a better answer04:05
SpeirosNo, there was another one as that, I think, as that was still recognised even after removing it.04:05

pepeeSpeiros, if ubuntu show the disk, then it is.04:06

pepeeSpeiros, ok, so you think the disk is /dev/sdc?04:09
rmrfslashpepee: it's not actually the problem. booting into recovery mode was only so I could try to install the Nvidia driver I downloaded from Nvidia, which I did, but it did not change the behavior i.e. blank screen on reboot04:10
Speirospepee: Yes, it is mate04:10
rmrfslashpepee: so I suppose booting into recovery mode is one of several problems04:10
=== upera is now known as Guest17762
SlidingHornKane_Hart, I wasn't being mean...I was simply informing you that your question was not ubuntu related and probably would be best served elsewhere...it's nothing personal, and attacking people isn't a good way to get help with whatever problem you're having04:10
rmrfslashpepee: but not the most troublesome, so I'm actually willing to ignore that one for now04:10
pepeermrfslash, if you can get the root console, you almost solved it.04:11
pepeeSpeiros, ok. again, it is formatted, or being recognized as swap/solaris? can you see something like /dev/sdc1?04:12
rmrfslashpepee: I don't think that solves the nvidia problem04:12
pepeermrfslash, remove the driver, and reinstall it correctly04:12
Speirospepee: Yes, it is recognised as /dev/sdc1, and it is in FAT32 format04:13
rmrfslashpepee: right now I'm at a fresh Ubuntu installation using the FOSS driver04:13
pepeermrfslash, by "correctly" I mean: read whatever toutorial you find about reinstallin the nvidia driver in ubuntu lucid04:13
pepeeSpeiros, well, you just need to mount it04:14
pepeeSpeiros, don't know how to do it correctly.... xD04:14
rmrfslashpepee: read a tutorial on installing a nvidia driver in lucid?04:14
Speirospepee:  Hmm, okay.  I did try this before, through mount manager once, but that was a while ago.  No, I don't mate.04:14
rmrfslashpepee: I thought you just use the restricted driver application04:14
rmrfslashpepee: and if that fails, you try to install the one directly from nvidia (of course you need to boot into recovery mode i.e. w/o X)04:15
pepeeSpeiros, but its something like sudo mkdir "/media/sdc1; mount -t vfat -o <some options here> /dev/sdc1 /media/sdc1"04:15
rmrfslashpepee: is that incorrect?04:15
pepeermrfslash, you may need to uninstall the foss driver before installing it from nvidia04:16
Speirospepee: I don't understand.  Do I enter that data, but the data is missing some information?04:16
pepeermrfslash, Speiros, don't know the specifics. I just give 'generic' help.04:16
rmrfslashpepee: so that's not done by the restricted driver installer application that comes w/ Ubuntu?04:16
pepeeSpeiros, yes, you do need to know what options to use04:16
Speirospepee: No probs.  It's appreciated man.04:17
SpeirosI see04:17
pepeermrfslash, did you use jockey-gtk?04:17
rmrfslashpepee: no idea what that is04:17
Speirospepee: The options though, if I start with sudo mkdir "/media/sdc1, will that work?04:17
pepeeSpeiros, the options are between <>04:18
rmrfslashpepee: yes, that's what I meant when I was saying the "restricted drivers application"04:18
pepeeSpeiros, do this: install pastebinit: sudo install pastebinit04:18
Speirospepee: Where would I source the options?  I'll do the install too.04:19
pepeeSpeiros, and then do: cat /etc/fstab | pastebinit04:19
Speirosmissing destination file operand after pastebinit04:19
pepeermrfslash, well, it may be a bug on the program, don't really know04:19
rmrfslashpepee: I install Ubuntu 10.04, then jockey asks me if I want to install the restricted driver (which I do want) but when I do install it (through jockey) and reboot I just get to a black screen04:19
pepeermrfslash, try googling "install nvidia driver lucid command line"04:20
rmrfslashpepee: yes, now were getting to the root of my frustration04:20

yipdwanyone know of any tips to resolve this?05:12
crdlbEdGred: python3.1 is in the repositories, but there's really not much you can do with it yet05:12
puffGnomeBaker got the furthest, burned for several minutes then said "failed" with no more info.  booted up the Cd and ran the media check, found one error.05:12

scuniziyipdw: perhaps installing "X" will help resolv this..05:13
EdGredcrdlb: ive tried using the repo, but its no giving me v3 when i type python in a term, its still giving me v205:13
annodomini_pepee: do you mean synaptic, or ubuntu software center, or apt-get, or aptitude?05:13

s3ain gnome when i click places => search for files (what is that called? - so that i can file a bug report)05:14
annodomini_There are several different package managers, so I'm not sure which one you mean. And once I'm in it, how do I find the package from the PPA? I've tried using apt-get, but I can't seem to find the PPA that way.05:14
scuniziyipdw: yes.. whatever the x server package is called.. not sure myself but xorg-server sounds right.. search aptitude/synaptic/apt-get for x references05:15
ech0Asushttp://pastebin.com/pQGz9aLK new05:15
gioactually everything worked fine before that gksu.py thing05:15
yipdwscunizi: as far as I know, the xorg packages depend on x11-common05:15
pepeeannodomini, whatever package manager you use. in synaptic you can check the package version, and if you use apt/aptitude you can do something like: aptitude install <package>=<version>05:15
yipdwscunizi: so installing that will run into the same problem05:15
gioi shouldnt have tried that05:15
crdlbEdGred: that's normal; they're incompatible05:15
lewis1711just trying to set up wireless. when I input iwconfig, I am told that wlan0 power is off. how do I, er, switch it on?:)05:15
pepeepuff, install k3b05:15
scuniziyipdw: just a sec.. brb.. looking at apt-get05:15
pufflewis1711: ifconfig or ifup, or use gnome network-manager.05:15
crdlbEdGred: what do you want it for? python 2.x is still the primary series05:15
giohttp://pastebin.org/355732 pepee05:15
pepeegio, yeah, I can see05:16
yipdwscunizi: thanks.  btw, here's the results of installing xserver-xorg-core: https://gist.github.com/4d9289cc97a935277640#file_xorg_install05:16
scuniziyipdw: x11-common is in the repos05:16
giothis is one busy channel05:16
yipdwscunizi: yeah -- installing x11-common directly hits that same problem05:16
pufflewis1711: but be aware, ifconfig and ifup use different lock files, so if you use both, you can get quite confused.05:16
EdGredcrdlb: but should it update python to point to v3 instead of v2? and i need to compile something that uses python305:16
gioif i would know python i could atleast have seen that script05:17
ech0Asusthis is crazy i can't i believe i some how destroyed my whole package system tryin to reinstall pidgin..05:17
yipdwscunizi: i.e. https://gist.github.com/4d9289cc97a935277640#file_x11_common_install05:17
lewis1711puff: I see. am using xubuntu but that channel is dead. guess it's time for some heavy googling05:17
pufflewis1711: Er, not different lock files, but different files to store the current state. So if you turn wlan0 off with ifdown, then try to turn it on with ifconfig, it'll tell you it's already on.05:17
crdlbEdGred: no, that would break code that uses #!/usr/bin/python and expects python 2 (which is just about every python script on your system)05:17
crdlbEdGred: what is it that needs python 3?05:17
pufflewis1711: I'm more of a shell guy, but most people seem to use the gnome network manager appet.05:17
scuniziyipdw: perhaps do a full upgrade first with "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade05:17
annodomini_pepee: I just get "E: Version '2.6.32-22.34~kamal~scien' for 'linux' was not found" when I try that05:18
scuniziyipdw: then sudo apt-get -f install05:18
pepeegio, you can't run gksu from root console...05:18
pufflewis1711: It should be up in your menu bar, usually near the right corner in vanilla ubuntu, and it looks like either a cell phone signal bars indicator (when connected) or like two overlapping PC icons.05:18
ech0Asushow do i clean apt-get up? it has this pidgin ppa and some key error everytime i try and install anything05:18

pepeeannodomini, are you sure that "linux" is the name of that package?05:19
pufflewis1711: or "sudo ifup eth1" and "sudo ifdown eth1"05:19

vikasap How do I execute a single command on multiple computers simultaneously ?05:51
LittleWolfWhen I installed Ubuntu the first time, before I could even install it, it would just make my monitor sleep and I couldn't do anything except a forced reboot. So someone on the ubuntu forums adviced me to delete quiet splash, and replace them with nomodeset, and ever since it has worked. So on another advice, I modified my grub to include nomodeset as default so I wouldn't have to type it everytime.05:51
SlidingHorngood night & good luck to all you poor souls trying to help  ;-)05:51

red2kicddilinger: The packages would be installed for all users. That work? One user get KDE, the other user get XFCE? It's not the approach I'm looking for. I wanted a virtual -- but a native virtual -- Without having to install it on the HDD? Meh.06:02
ddilingerLittleWolf: i dunno about your i915 command, but the same long line in grub that has the kernel options you just need to append the number 106:03

red2kicddilinger: That's what I'm thinking. I'm reading stuffs at the moment. No sweat. :206:06
ddilingerred2kic: well, you can have gnome and kde installed, log out of kde and then log into gnome, although you cant have the gnome desktop and the kde desktop running for the same user in the same X display at once06:07
ddilingerthat can all be done on a single user, they store their configs in seperate directorys.  The graphical login manager should have a dropdown to select gnome/kde/etc if they are installed06:08
red2kicddilinger: If you have another X display, you can have it running KDE. Not the approach I'm looking for. What I want to do is snapshots. Basically, I like it, I saved it. Then I start messing around with it. No sweat. I go back to my pristine condition.06:08
vervehi06:08
ddilingerahh, well for the most part that can be acomplished by duplicating the configuration directories06:08

cyphasethanks06:32
randerzwhat does clean v unclean mean?06:33
ddilingerdoing a normal kill doesn't do anything crazy, it just sends a signal to the process06:33
ddilingerthe process can ignore it if it wants, or shut down.06:33
ddilingerkill -9 tells linux to shut it down, doesn't care what the process thinks06:33
abhi_navplease help updation error: http://paste.ubuntu.com/454276/06:34
kermitfirefox is slow, what else should i use?06:34
ddilingerchrome06:34
abhi_navkermit, softfox06:34
kermitddilinger: chrome or chromium?06:34
abhi_navchrome06:35
randerzso usually a process will have a function for handling the shutdown signal06:35
kermiti like to support FOSS though, isnt chromium almost as good as chrome?06:35
randerzand can close "cleanly" - not leave any open file descriptors, etc.06:35
randerzright?06:35
ddilingeri use google-chrome-unstable from the ppa06:35
abhineshhi06:36
ddilingerranderz: well, linux wont let it have hanging file descriptors when its closed. linux will clean that.  By cleanly it means that the process shuts itself down, as oposed to the operating system shutting it down06:36
abhi_navrww can you please help sove this issue? http://paste.ubuntu.com/454276/06:36

Lalithaabhi_nav, I want to redirect the output of speakers to the audacity so that it can record it .06:39
abhi_navLalitha, dont know. i dont have audocity06:39
LalithaDoes anyone know how to redirect the output of soundcard to audacity so that it can record ?06:40
Lalithaabhi_nav, thakns for replying06:40
ddilingerLalitha: look into pulseaudio06:40
bh3wquick question06:40
bh3wwell two06:40
Guest15891bh3w, go06:40
abhi_navLalitha, ok06:40
ddilingerLalitha: with pulseaudio you can change the 'sink' at the flick of a button, the sink being where the audio goes06:40
ddilingerLalitha: if you want to record rather than play, you can make the sink be a .wav file06:40
bh3wone, how do i show what version i am running? and if i'm running with ubuntu, but want the KDE environment, what do?06:40

trask_I'm having troubles deleting some files that got interrupted during a transfer to my external HDD. Getting "Cannot remove <file> Input/output error"06:41
bh3wLinux woody-laptop 2.6.22-14-generic #1 SMP Sun Oct 14 23:05:12 GMT 2007 i686 GNU/Linux06:41
ddilingertrask_: likely a fsck is necessary06:41
doyleHow many jobs can make process without suffering too much? make -j50 too much?06:42
Lalithaddilinger, I am going to try it now.06:42
ddilingerlalitha: i think pulseaudio is installed by default on ubuntu, you just need to start the 'padevchooser' applet to let you easily switch sinks, and install the wav file sink06:42
trask_ddilinger: umount first then run? It won't delete anything will it?06:42
Guest15891guys what does wubi do06:42
ddilingertrask_: fsck wont delete anything, although you may end up with files in lost+found and no names06:42
ddilingertrask_: but the files in lost+found were already screwed before fsck ran, fsck just puts them there because it doesn't know where they go06:43
Guest15891guys what does wubi do06:43
Lalithaddilinger, installed padevchooser06:43
bh3wok06:43
ddilingernever heard of wubi06:43
bh3wi'm in synaptic06:44

Guest15891xray_tsk, what?06:44
Pavel_10I've downloaded Wicd, but it didn't auto-remove knetworkkanager.  Both are currently running.  How can I safely remove knetwork manager?06:44
LalithaGuest15891, wubi installs ubuntu as a windows application and uses windows' bootloader. and it can later be uninstaled from control panel > add/remove prog06:44
abhi_navddilinger, solved. i do sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys followed by error hed number. and it is done!!!06:44

abhi_navddilinger, :)06:45
ddilingerdmg: is your system on 24hrs a day?06:45
rod1recently appeared06:45
Guest15891thaaanks06:45
dmgon my netbook I have both, but on the server I want to choose one06:45
dmgyes06:45
ddilingerdmg: anacron is for systems that go up and down, cron is for servers06:46
ddilingerwell, generally anyways06:46
dmgddilinger, does the use the same config files?06:46
ddilingernot entirely sure06:46
trask_ddilinger: how do I see what /dev is my external? It's currently still mounted.06:46
dmgbecause I don't now if is it ok if I have both installed on my netbook06:46
ddilingertrask_: type 'mount'06:46
ddilingertrask_: should be listed06:47
trask_Simple. Thank you.06:47
=== alpenrose is now known as TNA-fx
ddilingerdmg: well, they arn't marked as conflicting packages so i guess its not the end of the world.  prob wouldn't hurt to remove cron though06:47
Guest15891do u recommend using windows and ubuntu06:48
ddilingeri recommend using what works for u06:48

red2kicddilinger: Okay. Do you happen to know if I were to install KDE on a new user, would GNOME apps and KDE apps overlays each others on new user? What about XFCE? I don't want to resort to figuring out which icon/package/settings belongs to.06:49
dmgddilinger, that's weird, in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CronHowto i read that anacron itself is invoked from the /etc/crontab file, but when I run "aptitude show anacron" in dependencies I see "libc6 (>= 2.7), debianutils (>= 1.7), lsb-base (>= 3.0-10)" and not cron...06:50
abhi_navred2kic, they will now overwritge each other. but you wll have all aps for gnome and kde desktop. i.e. no of aps will increase06:51
ddilingerred2kic: well, i'm actually using a very simple fluxbox install, no kde/gnome, but iirc they play pretty well together06:51
rajguys is there anyway to get 150 MBPS bitrate on an N adapter. im only getting 54 MBS? i have a TEW 644UB06:51
red2kicabhi_nav: Meaning if a user bob installed opera browser, it'll show up in user dave?06:51
ddilingerdmg: interesting, yea i just peeked at the anacron package it does suggest having cron installed, but doesn't require it06:52
ddilingerred2kic: no, you would have to install opera as root06:52
ddilingerred2kic: should be a .deb package you can just 'sudo dpkg -i opera.deb' on06:52
abhi_navred2kic, what we installed from admin account wll show up in every normal account in both kde and gnome06:52
Lalithaddilinger, what do i enter as sink ?06:53
abhi_navwhat is the name of that text irc? irrc? iiirc? or iirc? which one?06:53
dmgoh, maybe it's an old article and in the meanwhile anacron was rewritten not to use the cron deamon06:53

abhi_navddilinger, hmm06:54

I want the experiences of native KDE, native XFCE, native GNOME, etc...? Physical hard drives to swap around is one alternative. I don't want any virtuals.06:54
ddilingertrask_: well certainly can reformat to ext3 or something, but you will lose the contents06:54
ammarAnybody knows how to do a VPN in Ubuntu??06:55
abhi_navred2kic, what is de?06:55
trask_ddilinger: Fat32 wouldn't work since it's 1TB, right?06:55

ddilinger20 years in almost and linux still doesn't play that well with windows filesystems :P06:56
trask_Guest15891: ?06:56
abhi_navred2kic, so you want to install gnome,kde, xfce but you dont want their aps to be grouped toghet? thats not possible.06:56
Guest15891trask_, what is lames06:56
trask_ddilinger: ext2/3 are easy enough to read (and write?) on Windows, but still..06:56
red2kicabhi_nav: Meh. So every users will have to see any new packages that are installed from other users.06:57
abhi_navred2kic, not by other standarad users. but by other admin users06:57
Lalithaddilinger, I do not understand how to use that page.06:57
Lalithaddilinger, i must enter the commands one by one ?06:57
abhi_navred2kic, e.g. if bob install some software and bob is NOT admin then nobody else can see that software.06:57
Lalithaddilinger, but it does not have a place to enter the webapge link ?06:57
Matrice64hi everyone, has anyone been sucessful at getting itunes to work?06:57
abhi_navred2kic, but if bot IS admin and he install any software then all wll see that software06:57
ddilingerLalitha: copy the script(the numbered lines in the middle) into a file.  chmod +x the file, the run it with the command line option being the name of your output wav file06:58
Guest15891Matrice64, why do you want itunes06:59
red2kicabhi_nav: Alright, I guess I'll opt for virtuals (for now). Maybe bunch of hard drives.06:59
ddilingerthey dont make a linux itunes do they?  doesn't seem like apple's style06:59
abhi_navred2kic, hmm06:59
Matrice64Guest15891:  I have an ipad and I want to be able to access it when I'm on ubuntu06:59
ddilingerMatrice64: depending how beefy your computer is you can load virtualbox and run winxp in seamless mode, run itunes that way07:00
ddilingerMatrice64: be sure to use real virtualbox, not virtualbox-ose because the ose version doesn't do usb port forward07:00
Matrice64ddilinger: I was hoping to avoid doing that :-\07:00
ddilingerMatrice64: complain to apple :P07:01
Matrice64hahaha07:01
abhi_navred2kic, best way to learn such things is not theory but is practical. do it yourself try with gnome and kde. try to remove software of gnome you dont want in kde etc. Alwasy experimetn and learn. thats the more knowledgeable07:01
Matrice64right07:01
ddilingeri'm sure they will make a linux client :P07:01

jimalso, say I want to install it to a different place07:01
abhi_navred2kic, hmm07:01
Guest15891Matrice64, do you have windows07:01
Matrice64well.. rather change the dependency on using itunes altogether to manage it07:01

VanessaE(for a search of this type, the web is all but useless)07:38
ennuiindus: oops, I had removed rhythmbox because I wasn't using it as a player07:38
indusennui, it works fine for ipods , now also with ipod nano and touch i believe07:39
abusadoI need help07:39
kanhiyahrishi: same result authentication failure07:39
VanessaEI thought maybe it was a power management issue, but I can't find any clearly-stated way to turn the ports back on (shouldn't the port in use do this automatically?)07:40
abusado <---- how to get rid of this bug in bash?07:40
Guest15891abusado, what bug07:40
abusado/usr/bin/python: can't find '__main__.py' in '/usr/share/command-not-found' <-- how to get rid of this bug?07:40
abhi_navkanhiya,  go to root prompt and from there command line create enw admin user set its username and password and then login to it and form there manager your pc07:40

kanhiyaabhi_nav: root prompt in live CD/DVD07:41
abhi_navkanhiya, yes07:41
kanhiyaabhi_nav: how?07:42
abhinav_singhabhi_nav well in all the forums there are only questions abt that problem but no site contains solution07:42
abhi_navabhinav_singh, then they ddnt have fixed it yet07:42
abusado/usr/bin/python: can't find '__main__.py' in '/usr/share/command-not-found' <-- how to get rid of this bug? it should only say COMMAND NOT FOUND not that error07:42
abhi_navkanhiya, can you please repeat your question?07:42
VanessaEindus: the system does not recognize my plugging in either of the two USB devices I have: a standard-issue USB hard drive (with its own power supply), which I normally use with my PC, and an optical mouse, which I was testing with (since it should light up)07:42
indusjim hi]07:42
nomad77jim: same as old but use real partition number,not 1 less as in grub-legacy07:42
jimhi07:42
indusjim by editing grub config file07:43
indusjim what do you want to do07:43
abhinav_singhabhi_nav then why to use ubuntu..........i will install fedora1307:43
Guest15891abusado, ok07:43
VanessaEno messages of any kind in dmesg other than that which the kernel adds initially when it scans for device drivers to load (it loads OHCI and UHCI automatically)07:43
abhi_navabhinav_singh, sure. you do as you like. its 'free' world ;)07:43
jimI'm stuck, I dunno grub2 well (or at all even) and trying to help someone, we got somewhere but not everywhere07:43
kanhiyaabhi_nav: my EDUBUNTU 10.04 DVD boots well but after booting it takes me to login screen and asks for user name and password07:43

jimchocolate07:44
kanhiyaabhi_nav: -i also tried to install it but same result07:44

yudi1lj, i have no router07:45
ljsoftnetyudi1: can you login to your wireless router?07:45
abhi_navkanhiya, hmm dvd is waste07:45
indusjim well,. grub config file are in diff locations, grub default options are in /etc/default/grub , then conf file s in /etc/grub.d/40_custom etc07:45
yudi1i use ad-hoc network, not infrastructure07:45
indusjim in last one you can add the custom stuff07:45
jimright now we got the machine to boot from grub07:45
kanhiyaabhi_nav: it does not allow me to select fie systems and location etc07:45
jimand we're in an old menu07:45
ljsoftnetyudi1: maybe u need to wireless network cards, 1 for the network and 1 for the printer07:46
abhi_navkanhiya, what about downloading fresh iso and creating new dvd? ;)07:46
yudi1ljsoft, I believe it's got something to do with the print server, its set to APIPA07:46
indusjim hmm i guess copy grub2 instructions to a pen drive o r something ?07:46
indusjim or note down on paper ;)07:46
yudi1ljsoft, no I do not need any cards, It works like a charm on vista, same laptop daul boot07:47

kanhiyaabhi_nav: than what to do? i have downloaded it from EDUBUNTU OFFICIAL SITE and used a download manager07:47
indusarunkumar413, hello07:47
VanessaEindus, is there a way to test the ports to see if they even work?07:47
arunkumar413indus: i installed the qt3 dev tools07:47
indusVanessaE, if you put your finger in it , a nice shock should be received :D07:47
abhi_navkanhiya, there is a facility to check 'checksum' and aother is 'check installation media' you go to both of this option and see what they say07:47
indusVanessaE, well , is this the front ports on the case ?07:47
arunkumar413indus: and tried to compile a package from source.it's giving errors07:48
kanhiyaabhi_nav: right now i do not have a broadband connection, to download it again07:48
abhi_navkanhiya, ^^07:48
indusarunkumar413, hold on, iam with some other user07:48
abhi_navkanhiya, where do you live?07:48
kanhiyaokay! i will see that option also07:48
VanessaEindus: I assume you mean to ask whether they're even connected to the mainboard.  This is on a laptop, and they're on the side actually, but I've also tried the ones on the back.07:48
kanhiyaabhi_nav: i am from India07:48
ljsoftnetyudi1: im a bit confused about, your problem, try to ask again07:49
indusVanessaE,ah ok my mistake07:49
abhi_navkanhiya, I know that dear. I mean city07:49

jsoftWhats some interesting-ish program to install.07:49
kanhiyaabhi_nav: Panipat (Haryana)07:49
AAAjsoft  what are you interested in? apt-cache search <string>07:50
indusVanessaE, ok try this, first check dmesg | tail07:50
VanessaEindus, not exactly07:50
ubufooli think a cat pee'd on my motherboard...one of my nics isnt working right...how do i test it?07:50
abhi_navkanhiya, ahh ok. what I was suggestin was if some ubuntu userfrm same city can help you by downloading iso for you. i am from mumbai07:50
indusVanessaE, then plug a device and check dmesg | tail again07:50

indusubufool, how can a cat access the motherboard ??07:51
yudi1ljsoft, it's a networking issue, my laptop is not connecting to the printer wirelessly, no routers, it's direct. i just want to figure out where and what is going wrong, once if I can connect, i will be able to print,07:51
VanessaEI just checked my USB card reader - it powers on, but dmesg shows nothing of consequence.  my USB mouse doesn't even light up, and none of the three actually *do* anything07:51
=== notee39 is now known as spongebomb
ubufoolmy pc is open..air circulation =c07:51
indusVanessaE, can i see your dmesg output07:51
kanhiyaabhi_nav: there are very few linux user in Panipat07:51
VanessaE(i.e. no windows popping up or status messages in the log, or even so much as a flicker of the access light)07:51
VanessaEsure one sec.07:51
indusVanessaE, both on connecting and on removal of device please07:52
abhi_navkanhiya, yah ok you go to that checksum and check installation media option see what they give. if error then dvd is of no use.07:52
indusjim07:52
indusjim you there ?07:52
AiffeHello, can anyone help me? I have no sound on a new install of Lucid, and I've checked alsamixer/unmuted everything/checked the groups.07:52
indushave you readgrub 2 docs jim07:52
ubufooli cleaned some of what i could see. but i'll probably have to take the board out and open the metal case..clean the connections...I would like to know the command to see if it can be re-detected/installed07:52
kanhiyaokay i am also going to check that also!07:53

kanhiyaabhi_nav: how to compare checksum07:55
MoMoif i have about 20 linux machines a good amount of ubuntu with some redhat here and there .. and I want to run a bash script on ALL of the machines ... i was smart enough to put a root password that is the same on all the machines, but i don't have a list of all the machine ips ... what is the easiest way to scan the ip ranges, ssh run script from a common server share and move onto the next server?07:56
indusVanessaE, ok bad usb device or port, but mostly device ?07:56
vu1kandoes anybody know why the 'pop-up notifications' in prefs doesn't seem to apply changes?(specifically i'm trying to get the pop-ups to show in the lower right corner, but even though i've selected that option, they still show in the upper corner)07:56
ubufoolalso would like to know how to update to ubuntustudio from original 10.4?07:56
abhi_navabhinav_singh, try linux mint07:56
AiffeThanks anyway, demitrius.  I appreciate  the answer.07:56
indusVanessaE, or a kernel issue, which version of ubuntu is this07:56
VanessaEindus: three different devices, no reaction on any of them.07:56
demitriusAiffe - have you run the "Hardware Drivers" program?07:56
VanessaEThis is Lucid.07:56
indusVanessaE, netbook , laptop ?07:56
VanessaElaptop, Dell Inspiron 920007:56
abhi_navkanhiya, from whre you downloaded iso on that page they give its checksum. download that and there is a text base program something called md5 you check with it07:56
abhi_navkanhiya, you have to install md5 its very small program07:56
abhinav_singhabhi_nav:what is linux mint?07:56
Aiffedemitrius - how do I run that?07:57
C\wow07:57
brickyVanessaE broadcom07:57
rwwvu1kan: I believe that preferences thing is for GNOME's notification daemon, which isn't notify-osd, which is what Ubuntu uses.07:57
VanessaEbricky: eh?07:57
bricky?07:57

MoMohmmm07:58
indusVanessaE, double check bios options07:58
demitriusAiffe - oh, okay. that's all I can think of, sorry.07:58
VanessaEindus: no BIOS settings that affect USB, other than offering a boot order option07:58
squareBOXhey all, can yoiu tell em does ubuntu use ss to replace netstat? im writing a script for redhat based OS's but want to make sure it works on ubuntu/debian based os's as well07:58

indusVanessaE, but since you said the device lights up etc, seems more complicated07:59
indusVanessaE, only way i say is use another linux distro and check this08:00
VanessaEI would try, but I don't have any  bootable USB devices :-/08:00
indusVanessaE, or if possible a windows os08:00

indusubufool, its not necessarily stable08:14

ubufooloften "newest" is not the best and still has bugs that have not been reported to nvidia or ubuntu, and they will continue to work to bring newer ones to us08:14
phawxvu1kan, should just be archive manager?08:14

leifwso I'm trying to remove evolution, evolution-data-server, and all its plugins, but apt-get and aptitude both think that packages that recommend those need to be removed as well (or, in aptitude's case, keep recommending me that I should keep them or just downgrade them).  how do I tell it that yes, I really want those packages, and just those packages, removed?08:16
indusubufool, ubuntu doenst change any thing in the driver08:16
tgywawhich module is required by .htaccess ?08:16

ubufoolindus thx to all the testers who knew what to look for and helped debug it...i was one of them08:16
indusubufool, so no way it fried cards befoer and stopped it later08:16
ActionParsnipleifw: one of the packages is a dep of gnome-panel so watch what you remove08:16
ubufoolubuntu did not get the release that fried cards..08:16
leifwyeah that was one of them08:16
leifwwhy on earth does gnome panel depend on evolution components?08:16

indusanyway, lets move on08:17
ActionParsnipn3m3s1s4u:  is your bios the latest?08:17
ubufoolyes xD08:17
yillkidBut I still have problem. The size of nVidia driver package by ubuntu is total 334 MB, it's too big. I refer the document, I found too many unuse and dependency packages in it, I want to install the driver only, I don't need develope packages, how I should do? Install the driver in one pc, and copy the file I need to tthe other pc ?08:18
indus:D08:18
n3m3s1s4uits a brand new notebook?08:18
ubufoolit no longer does this and is fixed..so no need to worry about it08:18

VanessaEG*d forbid I have to install that OS for any reason :)09:38
vu1kanMalevolence gryllida wants to set webpage backgrounds to white, do you maybe know where you would do that?09:38
EvilTrekVanessaE:  such things (Windows CDs that are free) are normally illegal.09:39
AAAabuayyoub  no, a for loop. if you just encode everything in the folder, you'll get one bit -o output.file. for i in files ; do mencoder --stuff ; done. it is a bit more complex than that, but that is the jist09:39

Gneabricky: no, broadcom just doesn't directly support it, and, as is usual when linux software is developed, things change that these companies can't keep up with, so they have to hire someone else and no one knows what's going on anymore09:42

indusarunkumar413, any luck?09:50
sercikTheExplorer: you only need to disable autologin09:51

indusarunkumar413, doesnt mention if its windows or linux09:56
indusarunkumar413, The runtime library included in this package doesn't need the installing process. After you copy the runtime library folders into the same folder as the executable files, BSch3V is ready to use. It is useful to carry the BSch3V environment in USB flash memory.09:56
arunkumar413indus: those run time libraries may work only on windows09:57

indusarunkumar413, maybe you are just missing some qt files10:03
indusarunkumar413, wait for answer from author10:03
MrEgg964AAA: not really. I'm doing this remotely, I can't actually see what kind of cd they've inserted into the drive.10:03
arunkumar413indus: ok10:03
EvilTrekAAA: i can easily ignore the "Attaching inside of screen?" thing, because that's not an issue.  Getting byobu to run was the big thing :)10:03
skoefin fact: my kvm-client has all sorts of network issues, and apt-get update segfaults10:03
arunkumar413indus: r u free now10:03
indusarunkumar413, yea why10:04
MrEgg964AAA: but what you're saying is, with cdrom and plugdev membership, I should be good to go, right?10:04

indusi dont necessarily agree with that factoid10:04
indusarunkumar413, no sorry iam not10:04
arunkumar413indus: ok10:04
AAAEvilTrek  attaching inside of screen is typically a 'non error' it just means you are trying to attach the same screen session to you current screen10:04
sebsebsebskoef: Server Edition?10:05
AAAMrEgg964  I would think so yes. but if it is an audio cd you can't mount it10:05
skoefsebsebseb: yes, kvm-host is 32bits 8.04, kvm-client is 32bits 9.1010:06
arunkumar413indus: do you think a 16 bit processor can be used for word processing using linux kernel10:06
skoefalso, the client complains about: kernel: [40713.005075] no vm86_info: BAD10:06

j800rguys, does ubuntu have the same kde version in the repos as kubuntu. wanna try out kde again but would sooner install it on top of ubuntu rather than install a completely diff distro10:07
icerootBeelsebob: error-messages are welcome10:07
Beelsebobsubsequently to running mysqld myself, the server starts10:07
icerootj800r: yes10:07
arunkumar413indus: for reading word,txt,doc,html files10:07
sebsebsebj800r: uhmm10:07
Beelsebobit leaves *nothing* in it's error.log10:07
rwwj800r: yes, they use the same repositories10:07
Beelsebobnor in mysql.err10:07
indusarunkumar413, probably is enough10:08
sebsebsebj800r: Kubuntu is Ubuntu just with KDE instead10:08
Beelsebobiceberg: as I just said – no error messages10:08
Beelsebobjust sudo start mysql hangs10:08
icerootj800r: kubuntu is ubuntu with the package "kubuntu-desktop"10:08
Beelsebobuntil I run mysqld manually myself10:08
sebsebsebj800r: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop10:08
j800rah, ok. thanks for that. i'm constantly torn between kde and gnome10:08
gryllida:)10:08
sebsebsebj800r: oh and I suggest KDM when it asks which log in screen to use, since its way better than GDM 210:08
icerootBeelsebob: use the binary not the service10:08
indusj800r, just keep in mind, the menu will be completely cluttered with both kde and gnome apps, i dont recommend it10:08
Beelsebobiceroot: useful...10:09
AAABeelsebob  you can start mysql in debug mode and have it log to the terminal10:09
indusj800r, do a multi boot with either desktops10:09
fishcookerhow to make automated cd installer ubuntu server installation without any prompt, anyone?10:09
sebsebsebj800r: indus is not giving good advice10:09
Beelsebobiceroot: as I just said – the problem is with the service, not mysqld10:09
sebsebsebj800r: no reason to dual boot Ubuntu and Kubuntu10:09
icerootBeelsebob: sudo /usr/bin/mysqld (or where mysqld is stored10:09
Beelsebobmysqld starts if I run it myself10:09
indussebsebseb, thanks10:09
sebsebsebj800r:  just have htem both installed, and log in to the one you want from the log in screen10:09
Beelsebobiceroot: again, for the third time – mysqld starts if I run it manually10:09
icerootBeelsebob: ah ok didnt read that10:09
Beelsebobbefore I run it manually sudo start mysql doesn't work10:09
AAABeelsebob  start it in debug with log to the term10:09
Beelsebobafter I run it manually sudo start mysql does work10:09
gryllidaj800r: you don't dual boot them, just install both gnome and kde gui packages and choose when logging on, they still share same kernel10:10
sebsebsebindus: dual boot is silly for that, a virtual machine on the other hand could be good,  since that way can run Gnome and KDE at the same time10:10
BeelsebobAAA: AGAIN! The problem is *not* with mysql – it's with upstart10:10
gryllidasebsebseb: hey, any idea how to change lynx webpages background to white, it10:10
j800rtbh, only reason i ever really kept comming back to gnome was for gwibber. but i think i have a way round that now10:10

icerootn3m3s1s4u: ##windows10:11
sebsebsebj800r: you can run Gwibber in KDE as well, also there is a facebook  applet or whatever for KDE10:11
gryllidasebsebseb: I opened google.com in Lynx web browser, it has dark background :-(10:11
j800ris the ubuntu one store available in amarok as well or is it Rhythmbox or bust?10:11
sebsebsebj800r: Facebook has something social as well,  some sort of widget or whatever they are called in KDE10:11
ddilingerBeelsebob: so what happens? where does it get stuck?  does the mysql process ever get started, does the /etc/init.d/mysql script get run?  throw some debugging lines in there its all shell script :P10:11
sebsebsebgryllida: Lynx is text only, its meant to be black background, with white text10:11
sebsebsebgryllida: runs in terminal10:11
ddilingeralthough i always found lynx to be blah,  try w3m :)10:12
gryllida sebsebseb, but the default for this terminal is black text, white backround10:12
AAAGytis  links2 has graphix support10:12
sebsebsebj800r: only Rythombox,  and Banshee with another program10:12
Beelsebobddilinger: sudo start mysql hangs, and does not start any mysqld process10:12
sebsebsebj800r: you can run those in KDE as well10:12
ddilingerBeelsebob: does it run the script /etc/init.d/mysql?10:12
ddilingerBeelsebob: does it start if you use /etc/init.d/mysql start instead of start mysql ?10:12
indussebsebseb, what you said is another option , but read what i said before you comment, the menu clutter is a fact10:12
j800rcan you still use ubuntu one music store via web browser alone?10:12
sebsebsebgryllida: uh I don't know, been quite a long while since I used Lynx10:12
duxbuzanyone help with Xwindows prob, cannot start x unless i run as sudo10:13
Beelsebobddilinger: no, it says "oh hey, you should use the upstart script, not the init.d one"10:13
indussebsebseb, a vm takes resources btw10:13
sebsebsebindus: having quite a lot in a menu, isn't really a big deal, for most of us :)10:13
ddilingerBeelsebob: typically they say that then start anyways10:13
ddilingerBeelsebob: its more of a info statement that an actual problem10:13
AAAsebsebseb  gryllida links210:13
j800ri mean, if i could purchase and download through my browser i'd be perfectly happy10:13
jozefkthis would delete last 22 lines of all html files in directory: sed -e :a -e '$d;N;2,22ba' -e 'P;D' *.html   but the change is not permanent. how can I make it permanent?10:13
indussebsebseb, thats the plague called kde isnt it why people stick to gnome10:13
sebsebsebindus: no10:13
indusanyways moving on10:13
gryllidasebsebseb: I would find it good if there was a way to forbid any apps use non-default colors in Terminal at all, or find a pref in Lynx, I wasn't able to do either; but black background isn't a thing I can read though10:14
ddilingerBeelsebob: if you look through the /etc/init.d/mysqld script you can see its still a full start script10:14
Beelsebobddilinger: well, the init.d script produces that output, *doesn't* hang, but also doesn't start mysqld10:14
sebsebsebindus: some like KDE, some like Gnome, some like other stuff like LXDE and XFCE10:14
yoyonedduxbuz: do you get an error message?10:14
ddilingerBeelsebob: hmm,10:14
sebsebsebindus: and people that use Ubuntu, use their edited Gnome, because thats what Ubuntu comes with10:14
sebsebsebindus: that will be the main reason for most users10:14
gryllida sebsebseb: "edited" Gnome?10:14
Chymera1hi guys, how can I copy all the hidden files in my home dir to a backup folder without ~/. and ~/.. being pulled in as well10:14
Chymera1?10:14
duxbuzyoyoned:  ye. dcopserver not running10:15
sebsebsebgryllida: yeah changes that aren't upstream here and there, in 10.04, will be even more in 10.10, and only a little bit in 9.04 and 9.1010:15
ddilingergryllida: ubuntu customes their distribution, they dont just compile the released code10:15
gryllida Chymera1: cd ../ <- do it several times to get out of home folder to a more topmost directory10:15
duxbuzit starts as sudo, tried changing file chmod on ICEAuthority and others mentioned10:15
gryllidaok sebsebseb10:16
ddilingersebsebseb: but thats kinda the point of open source.  If you think you can do it better you can, if you think it only needs a tweak to be better you can do that too.10:16
indusnever heard of an edited gnome before now10:16
gryllida:P10:16
sebsebsebgryllida:  ddilinger  Yeah Ubuntu developers are starting to do much more of their own thing with Gnome.10:16
gryllidaindus ^10:16
indussebsebseb, like what10:16
ddilingerit starts with integration10:17
lfidarragahola?10:17
sebsebsebindus: see above, and if you don't understand, find out what upstream Gnome is, and how most other distros for the desktop do Gnome :D10:17
j800rtbh i like what Ubuntu are doing with Gnome, it's the only thing remotely attractive about it for me10:17
c3lwhats the best tool for creating automatic backups on my external drive? rsync seems to be for remote syncs only10:17
ddilingerindus: starts with things like network configuration and whatnot that are not the same across distributions.  Then they find other little things they want to change :P)10:17
AAAChymera1  rsync --exclude '~/.*' ~user/ /mnt/backup/user10:17
ddilingerc3l: rsync does local too10:17
indusubuntu hardly changes gnome , i atleast havent seen it10:18
sebsebsebj800r: well they got to do something I suppouse, or people will lose interest in Ubuntu,  and Gnome hasn't changed that much since 200410:18
yoyonedduxbuz: are you starting kde?10:18
sebsebsebindus: they have a lot in 10.04, but this is off topic,  however if you want to know the details pm10:18

ubutom_anyone using minitube? Can't skip through the videos with the slider, using 64 Bit, maybe a flash issue or is it generally not possible to seek with minitube?10:19
ddilingerraj: add that to /etc/modules10:19
AAAraj  I don't know. you can add it to /etc/modules and it will load at boot10:19
ddilingerraj:  echo rt2870sta >>/etc/modules as root10:19
j800rwhat is minitube? :\10:20
ddilingermake sure its a double >>10:20
j800rsounds like something you'd get on a phone10:20
fishcookeranyone any experience on installing ubuntu on 100pc... ?10:20

ddilingerraj: open up the file and look at it, it will be very obvious10:20
fishcookeri need to create cd installer, the automated one... without any prompt... or interactive mode10:20

rajddilinger:  so i would add echo rt2870sta    on that page?10:22
ddilingerraj: did you read the text at the top of that file?10:22
fishcookeranyone?10:22
* ddilinger always forgets people use linux with a gui and not the command line :P10:22
AAAraj  >> adds to a file. and you need to add that rt* line to the bottom of /etc/modules10:22
AAAddilinger  d0h!10:23
rajddilinger:  yes i did. but it doesnt tell you how to add it? what should i type in there?10:23
ddilingerraj: hmm, i thought it said something like 'Put the modules you want to load in this file 1 per line"10:23
nmvictorhow do i download an entire website using wget?10:23
AAAmneptok  -r. man wget10:23
ddilingerraj: so just add a line and type in your module and save it, reboot should be all loaded without modprobe10:23
AAAnmvictor  -r. man wget10:23
ddilingers/wget/aria2c/10:24
ddilingerif you have a fast network connection, aria2c much better :)10:24
rajddilinger:  so you just add: rt2870sta    and then save and reboot?10:24
AAAddilinger  better than curl?10:24
ddilingerraj: yup, on a line by itself10:24
ddilingerAAA: by far, aria2c does parallel downloads10:24
ddilingerAAA: either from same server, or multiple servers10:24
AAAddilinger  hot10:24
xmagixxxcan anyone help me with my microphone, it aint working in ubuntu, i can't select it in sound settings so i guess it's the driver10:25
AAAraj  any module listed on 1 line in /etc/module will be loaded on boot10:25
DaHopihello, grub2 needs 10 seconds to boot after bios screen.. with grub1 i handt these problem..10:25
ddilingerAAA: you could point it at 10 mirrors for the same kernel source, and it will download from all of them in parallel, i can often get 4x the speed with aria2c (my net maxes as 2MB/sec though, if u have a slow connection might not be so noticable)10:25
j800rok, time to boot into kde. catch you on the flipside10:25
rajddilinger:  AAA  THANK YOU BOTH :)10:25
haierhello10:26
AAAddilinger  so it handles files similar to a torrent then?10:26
haierexit10:26
ddilingerAAA: kinda, it also does torrents :)  and ftp, http, metalink, prob a few more10:26
ddilingernever tried using it for torrents though10:27
AAAraj  np. fyi, you can also put special module params to the drivers there. ex. thinkpad_acpi fancontrol=1  <-- you can find out all the special params by doing $ modinfo <module name>10:27
rajaaa thx10:28
ubutom_hhm, minitube just froze, seems to be something wrong here, will remove the config files :)10:28
nmvictorI have a dream, that one day, computer users will judge and preffer an OS by its content and attributions and not by the time it has been around, fooling and monopolizing the entire market. I HATE WINDOWS!!!!!10:28
rajAAA:  thank you this means i can get 150 MBPS bit rate? on this N?10:28
ddilingernmvictor: linux is about as old as windows, of course DOS is a little older10:29
AAAraj  that is another discussion. my first thought is to try : $ rmmod <mod> && modprobe <mod> special=foo10:29
nmvictorddilinger: i certainly meant around and doing good in the market10:30
KriSkoo :)  i luv my win 7 cuz all games and programs are make for windows not mac os not linux10:30
rajAAA i only get 54M on an N network and N card :S10:30
KriSkoobut linux and mac r more secure10:30
ddilingernmvictor: hmm, i guess it depends on the market, i had a linux box before win95 came out.  linux was certainly big back then but only online10:30
AAAraj  if there are special ways to modprobe your driver that will give you more speed, then try it! and check $ dmesg afterwards10:31
ddilingernmvictor: i guess the difference is noone else but me at my school knew what online was at the time :P10:31
rajAAA thank you10:31
nmvictorGnome 2.30.2 is out, wow10:31

=== schmidtm_ is now known as schmidtm
indusnmvictor, whats diff in that10:32
sebsebsebnmvictor: I guess 10.10 will be using something like that, since they aren't going to do Gnome 3 by default.10:32
unsequitursebsebseb: I don't see a Gnome 3 adoption even in 11.04, to be hoest10:33
unsequitur*honest10:33
sebsebsebunsequitur: from what I read it seems, they will use 11.04 and 11.10 to get Gnome 3 ready for the 12.04 LTS10:33
ddilingerkrafty: it also comes down to market share.  If your trying to build a giant botnet you can get 100x more clients by writing a win virus than a macos one10:33

ddilingerbr33zie: when you boot in single user mode it will drop you straight to a root console, no X or anything like that10:51
