wildbatgeorgij, wait, let's me guess you use wubi?00:15
mneptokpooky: sudo apt-get install checkgmail00:15
pookywait, that was checkgmail, sorry, I've been trying everything I could find via google, wondering if someone had a successful instance00:15
aliendude3500Hey guys, I'm a long time Ubuntu user, and a software developer who needs a bit of help helping a friend move their wubi Ubuntu Lucid Lynx installation to a dedicated partition. I have VNC and SSH access to their system. I tried the steps at http://lubi.sourceforge.net/lvpm.html to no avail.00:15
wildbatgeorgij, we don't have boot_ ~00:15
georgijwildbat ok I am using archlinux but I got banned from both linux and archlinux00:15
aliendude3500I couldn't get the partitionmanager package to install, and I couldn't find a newer version in the repositories. Any ideas?00:16
pookymneptok: that would be good if it could auth my google app accounts. It only works for my standard gmail though.00:16
bazhanggeorgij, that is not supported here00:16
georgijwildbat where is ur vmlinuz located?00:16
bazhanggeorgij, being banned elsewhere has nothing to do with Ubuntu00:16
aliendude3500Unfortunately, I only have less than a gig to work with, as they maxed out their Ubuntu partition before asking me to help them resize their Windows partition and move Ubuntu to a new dedicated partition.00:16
georgijshouldnt linux place it somewhere in / then put it in /boot00:17
rod1anyone know how to fix "Unknown monitor"? it says CRT even though this is an LCD00:17
georgijYes it does more users in here and better support since people are more likely to answer00:17
aliendude3500The dedicated partition does not exist yet. I need to help them install partitionmanager to create that first.00:17
bazhanggeorgij, no00:17
juggalo483bastid_razor: i think yo mis understand me i looking to just view network folders/files like in windows when i click on network all my systems show up00:17
mneptokgeorgij: please stop. you're asking about Arch in #ubuntu. it will not be long before you are banned here, as well.00:17
georgijBazhang yes00:17
pookymneptok: thanks for trying though.00:17
aliendude3500Unfortunately, I can't resize the Windows partition while in Ubuntu because of the fact it's mounted as the wubi host partition.00:18
codebrainzjuggalo483, enable file sharing on windows, share folder, and then in Ubuntu use "Connect to server" under the places menu.  probably the easiest way00:18
aliendude3500Can anyone help me with this? I've been desperately trying to install the partition manager software in GRUB for the last hour...00:18
mneptokpooky: http://groups.google.com/group/hosted-the-basics/browse_thread/thread/940c68ba6ecdf29a/5e5ead64d1fb160e?pli=100:18
rod1anyone know how to fix "Unknown monitor"? it says CRT even though this is an LCD00:18
codebrainzaliendude3500, can you dd the wubi install?00:19
juggalo483codebrainz: what about the other way around00:19
WebDawghow do I take somthing off the autoremove list?00:19
codebrainzjuggalo483, not too much harder, assuming ubuntu has a gui for this (i think it does), otherwise it's a bit of pita00:19
aliendude3500I have access to the file, but I shouldn't attempt to dd it while it's mounted. Right now I'm connected via ssh and vnc to the wubi installation.00:19
aliendude3500I've been trying to use this method to transfer the data: http://lubi.sourceforge.net/lvpm.html00:20
wildbataliendude3500, live CD?00:20
Andros`Dareionlist00:21
codebrainzaliendude3500, you could rsync the wubi install to another machine and then rsync it back after tweaking the partition table?00:21
Andros`Dareioncuanta gente00:21
aliendude3500wildbat: I'm on my working Ubuntu installation, sshing into the target wubi installation across the internet. We're not even in the same state :/00:21
pookymneptok: yes, I'd seen that thread. I'm pretty sure I searched a bit before coming here, was hoping someone had something they were using without issue. the checkgmail issues cropped up due to changes in the google apps api00:21
SlidingHorn!es | Andros`Dareion00:21
ubottuAndros`Dareion: En la mayoría de canales de Ubuntu se habla sólo en inglés. Si busca ayuda en español o charlar entra en el canal #ubuntu-es. Escribe "/join #ubuntu-es" (sin comillas) y dale a enter.00:21
aliendude3500codebrainz: Unfortunately, the wubi install is mounted. is moving the files while inside the installation really a good idea?00:22
wildbataliendude3500, you can do copy inside of moving00:23
Andros`DareionSlidingHorn,  gracias/thanks you00:23
aliendude3500I'm on a different machine right now, with a 1.5TB hard disk. Storing their stuff isn't a problem at all, I'm more worried about corrupting the data.00:23
SlidingHornAndros`Dareion, de nada00:23
Andros`DareionSlidingHorn,  hablas español vos'?00:23
codebrainzaliendude3500, rsync will copy the fs from theirs to yours, then you transfer back to a partition later.  only issues would be pseudo filesystems like /dev and such, which you can fixup afterwards00:24
wildbata/inside/instead00:24
SlidingHornAndros`Dareion, I only know enough to order a beer and say "¿dónde está el baño? mi gato está en fuego"00:24
codebrainzaliendude3500, of course the remote thing makes everything a lot more of a pain00:24
vyrgozunqkguys help me please, i've deleted by mistake /etc/init.d/mtab.sh & /etc/init.d/udev is there any way to restore them ?!00:24
SlidingHorn!undelete | vyrgozunqk00:24
ubottuvyrgozunqk: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel00:25
codebrainzSlidingHorn, your cat is on fire?00:25
SlidingHornlol yep!00:25
aliendude3500The problem is, the wubi installation is within their windows installation. I don't feel like moving all 360GB. Just the 30 from wubi. And I don't think it will let me transfer the wubi partition while I'm in it.00:25
codebrainzaliendude3500, this is exactly what rsync does00:25
wildbataliendude3500, or can't your friend boot a live CD and set a passwd and setup sshd? just two command be4 you can ssh over his liveCD00:26
aliendude3500how do I go about doing that? I'm in their system with SSH as root right now.00:26
vyrgozunqkSlidingHorn: i can't use any of these tools00:26
vyrgozunqki'm in recovery mode00:26

vyrgozunqkcan someone please upload those files for me somewhere so i can download them with wget ?00:27
razz1nvidia config, when I set it to separate x screen, I cannot move mouse from one screen to the other? why00:27
codebrainzaliendude3500, check the rsync manpage, something like 'rsync -ar -e ssh user@hostname:/ /home/you/backupdir'00:27
codebrainzaliendude3500, check the manpage first though, those options probably aren't 100%00:27
campeei have ubuntu 10.04 and the network manager icon is missing at the top of the screen. i tried running NetworkManager from a command prompt but it said that it is already running. i also tried running "metacity --replace" which I found on google and that doesn't help either. any ideas?00:27
aliendude3500do I type the rsync command while in ssh, or do I do that from my account on my system?00:28
aliendude3500I'm assuming the latter?00:28
SlidingHornvyrgozunqk, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery#Foremost00:28
codebrainzaliendude3500, you can go either way, the former means you need a ssh on your local box00:28
codebrainzaliendude3500, *ssh server that is00:28
vyrgozunqkSlidingHorn: i can't read those post i don't have any GUY, i can't load the system normal !00:29
vyrgozunqkso i need those two files to load the system00:29
aliendude3500codebrainz: now will this only backup their home folder, or their whole linux filesystem?00:29
vyrgozunqkplus i probably can't recover the files 'cause i've already have written some files to the HDD00:29
campeei also get "nm-applet" is already running when i try to run that as well00:29
codebrainzaliendude3500, however you want, rsync is (in a sense) a super smart cp00:30

Guest86978campee, yeah00:34
codebrainzrazz1, so what do want then?00:34
aliendude3500codebrainz: is there anyway to exclude a folder from rsync, for example "/host", which contains their entire windows partition?00:34
Guest86978campee, try and close the applets00:35
codebrainzaliendude3500, yep, see the manpage, all the options are in there  (man rsync)00:35
razz1code, just want to know how to move the mouse between two x screens in separate x screen mode00:35
SlidingHorncampee: ps aux | grep "nm-applet"   (find the process id --- kill that process then open it via command line again)00:35

codebrainzrazz1, maybe it's the application(s) you're using?  what is it?00:38
razz1code, there has to be a way to move the mouse, otherwise what's the use of such a setup. it does not happen always, it happens with empathy00:38

johnofwaxall other hostnames work fine except for my ubuntu box for some reason. started yesterday when I restarted..01:04
jtekneton top of not having the partition tool working, how come I can't demo a live version of Ubuntu? I just checked the boot options and I can't "try before installing" like I've always been able to do before 10.04...01:04
johnofwaxOk. my 10.04 hostname is "server". server can ping server, and DD-WRT can ping server.01:04
johnofwaxmy windows 7, XP, and xbox cannot ping server01:04
johnofwaxthey have to access shares via the IP address, starting yesterday01:04
johnofwaxthe router has not been updated or changed in any way01:04
clctojohnofwax: less \n01:04
codebrainzjteknet, the first option on the live cd boot menu, and apt-get install gparted if it's not installed by default on the live cd01:05
Aut0Execjohnofwax: u have dnsmasq on ... on ur dd-wrt router?01:05
rolandpishHi, I successfully connected to an openvpn server. How can I get my local ip(vpn) address?01:05
johnofwaxyes I do01:05
Aut0Execsounds like dns issues to me bro01:05
jteknetcodebrainz: Could it be because I have the 64-bit AMD version disc?01:05
HexLaTorrolandpish, does the tun adapter apeared ?01:05
clctojohnofwax: install a packet sniffere01:05
johnofwaxThats what I thought too, as the router-being-able-to-see-name was just discovered about 5 minutes ago.01:05
codebrainzjteknet, if you have a 64-bit cpu, doubtful01:05
Lascivusifconfig should show a tunnel interface01:06
jteknetcodebrainz: Yeah, I have a Phenom II QuadCore01:06
Aut0Execjohnofwax: do what clcto suggested and use umm.... tcpdump to see whats going on01:06
rolandpishHexLaTor: no, if I execute ifconfig -a only lo and eth0 appears. I successfully connected because I can ping the 10.8.0.101:06
jteknetI've had this working before. I ran upgrade and then I shutdown and tried to start again and xwindows wouldn't come up.01:06
jteknetSo now I'm just doing it the pansy way and trying to reinstall.01:06
HexLaTorrolandpish, it should appear first01:06
codebrainzjteknet, yeah, the just press enter twice when the cd starts to boot01:06
coty91#severedfifth01:07
HexLaTorrolandpish, try to enter to /etc/openvpn and type: openvpn server.conf01:07
codebrainzjteknet, i forget the wording, enter to English and then Enter on the first boot menu item01:07
jteknetcodebrainz: My only options are "Install Ubuntu" "Check disc for defects" "Test Memory" etc. I don't have a "live cd" option01:07
anthonhow do you use the tcpdump command?01:07
codebrainzjteknet, did you download the "alternate" cd or "server" cd?01:07
Aut0Execanthon: tcpdump -v01:07
rolandpishHexLaTor: the openvpn server is in Windows, and I connected from my ubuntu box01:08
jteknetcodebrainz: That, I'm not sure of. It's been weeks. I have a 10mb connection so if I need to download another, I can. Which one is the "right" one?01:08
anthonthanks01:08
rolandpishHexLaTor, I can use the server without problems, but I would like to know my ip address assigned from openvpn01:08
HexLaTorrolandpish, hmmm never tried it on windows, but an adapter should appear in ur network01:08
jteknetcodebrainz: When I go to Ubuntu.com and click download on the 64-bit version I get the iso called "ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso" Is this the one I need?01:09
johnofwaxso "server" knows it's server, "DD-WRT" knows "server" is "server", but no other computers connected to DD-WRT know "server" is "server".  it has got to be an issue on the DD-WRT at this point, correct?01:09
codebrainzjteknet, http://mirror.csclub.uwaterloo.ca/ubuntu-releases/10.04/ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso01:09

johnofwaxshould've done that w/ the pc01:16
ponderacodebrainz thats sounds good light is better, i just want to be able to do the same things i can do with ubuntu01:16
johnofwaxthanks again01:17
clctoafter you install the base system you can get whichever *buntu system you want with one command01:17
Aut0Execno prob01:17
codebrainzpondera, you should be ok with normal ubuntu.  there are lots of ways to lighten them both up, but it takes some know-how (googling)01:17
ponderaclcto what do u mean by base system ?01:18
clctoany *buntu system01:18
codebrainzclcto, i usually install "cli system" from the "alternate" cd and then apt-get xfce4 and xorg and some other useful stuff, but it can be more of a pain than using default ubuntu install01:19
rolandpishHexLaTor, ok I'll do some extra checking because the TAP Win32 adapter shows the icon like "cable-disconnected" but I'm connected to it.01:19

hydesterhi.  i have been toying with Xen for a little bit (about 6 months) on Debian and CentOS.  it is such a struggle to get it working on recent Ubuntu releases.  from what i have read, KVM seems to be what the Linux community has embraced.  i liked the  paravirtualization feature in Xen, but if KVM is natively support by Lucid then i'll probably try moving to that.  any comments on KVM support and/or paravirtualization?01:20
codebrainzpondera, apt-get install xubuntu-desktop i believe01:20

hellotherehi guys. so i fired up gparted in ubuntu 10.04 and i wanted to create an hfs partition . the option is there but it is greyed out. any idea what packages i need to install in order to be able to create hfs partitions? thanks02:28
airtonixhellothere, apt-cache search hfs02:28
rooshthere was a folder in c:/hp02:28
WhitorBabalabon, http://www.ubuntugeek.com/install-sun-looking-glass-desktop-environment-in-ubuntu.html02:28
hellothereairtonix, im sorry, what? whats apt-cache02:28
rooshthat contained netr.inf and netr.sys02:28
airtonixroosh, so you just pointed gtk-ndis at the folder containing the <blah>.inf file ?02:28
Dr_Willishellothere:  theres proberly some 'hfstools' or siimilary named packages - IF its even possible.  hfs support is not complete in linux02:28
rooshi actually copied the folder to my desktop02:29
airtonixhellothere, a method of searching package repository02:29
rooshthen I pointed ndis there02:29
Dr_Willishellothere:  hfsutils - Tools for reading and writing Macintosh volumes02:29
WhitorSo... how can I manually specify a framebuffer resolution for my console ?02:29
Dr_Willishellothere:  hfsplus - Tools to access HFS+ formatted volumes02:29
airtonixroosh, you need more than the inf file. (inf file is just a text file a manifest file that describes other files required )02:29

rooshill try that02:31
airtonixroosh, (instead of trying to copy the files to your desktop location )02:31
Dr_Willismyrk:  use a different text editor. i think 'vi' can handle that situation02:31
myrkok02:31

soreauWhitor: I see no application by that name here02:35
Whitorsoreau, startupmanager02:36
Whitorsorry02:36
icerootarand: so its running faster to use / and then on the bigest dir instead of the whole system02:36
Whitorseems a little silly to assume everyone has a 4:3 display02:37
Whitora button or field to manually specify a resolution would be awesome02:37
soreauWhitor: Maybe ask in #grub?02:38
Whitorgood idea02:38
Dr_WillisWhitor:  thats posibuility a liimitation of the bios/framebuffer02:38
arandiceroot: No "du -sh /" Will give a grand total of / with no subdirs, sin'ce you're using -s02:38
rooshI tried it02:39
rooshbut ndis still failed02:39
Dr_WillisWhitor:  the comments in /etc/default/grub mention the grub-shell command   `vbeinfo'    to see what modes your system can handle02:39

jcapincHow do I set the nomodeset kernal option when I do not see grub boot on startup?02:42
=== Gwar_ is now known as Gwar
Dr_Willisjcapinc:  on an installed system? You could set it as a option in /etc/default/grub  or you could alter that file and tell it to Always show the grub menu.02:42
harovaliiceroot: I ran   apt-get clean && apt-get update        , but things don't get back to normal  ;  I'm starting to supose that the problem might be bad repositories. Is that plausible to you ?02:42
* Dr_Willis hates how the grub setup defaults to hiding the menu.02:43
rooshairtonix: are you still here?02:43
spottyIm using (K)ubuntu Lucid.  My home directory (and all users) are getting mounted as read-only.  I have a partition just for /home. Anyone know why it might be happening?02:43
Dr_Willisspotty:  check dmesg output. If theres  some sort of disk-error theres often an option set in fstab to remount it read only.02:43
Dr_Willisspotty:  i had issues like that when a hd was going bad.02:43
spottyWhat would that command be?02:43
airtonixroosh, yes02:44
spottyand I did check fstab. Both / and /home are mounted with error-remount-ro set02:44
Dr_Willisspotty:  then i would bet that somewhere in dmesg - it mentions some errors on the hd.02:44
rooshso i tried it, but still no working. here is part of the syslog file: http://paste.ubuntu.com/454753/02:44
Dr_Willisand remounts it read-only02:44
spottyagain, how do I get the output for dmesg?02:44
razz1I am going to enable pae in 10.04, do  I need to disable restricted drivers first or is it going to be fine?02:45
greezmunkeyspotty: just type dmesg in a terminal02:45
greezmunkeyspotty: or look in /var/log02:46
spottyWell, it gave me all of this: http://pastebin.com/rTrdK6xt02:46
Dr_Willisspotty:  'dmesg' is a command. :)02:46
Dr_Willisspotty:  normally if working ion a machine and it 'happens' to remount the HD on me. the info is near the end.02:47
spottyIll say it once and Ill say it again. Holy crap!02:47
Dr_Willisspotty:  or grep the dmesg output02:47
Dr_Willisdmesg | grep sda02:47
Dr_Willisor whatever the hd is02:47
greezmunkeyspotty: hmm, the first few lines definately indicate a problem - good call Dr.02:47
spottyNo wonder Gnome is so slow (KDE wont even load)02:47
spottyI have to say that if my hard drive has problems, its disappointing since this is only a 6 month old computer.02:48
jrbaker8soreau: when i checked the disk it says "(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: input/output error02:48
jrbaker8disc*02:48
Dr_Willisspotty:  ive bought New hard drives with probmlems.02:48
greezmunkeyDr_Willis: is there a chance that forcing fsck on boot will help?02:49
Dr_Willisspotty:  i got a 1.5 TB at xmas that has a similer issue. it was my /  that kept getting remounted ro.. THATY can really goof things up02:49
Dr_Willisgreezmunkey:  with HD's its hard to tell. I fsck mine.. it works for a few hrs.. then later it get an error and becomes RO.02:49
spottyHmm... so what is the next thing I can try?02:49
Dr_Willisspotty:  in short.. I would NOT trust that hard drive very much. I reccomend replaceing it.02:49
spottyand incidentally both my / and my /home are set to go read only upon error within /etc/fstab02:49
greezmunkeyDr_Willis: using that logic, an immediate backup is called for02:50
Dr_Willisspotty:  theres some tools that 'might' fix it. but HD's are the weakest link in a mondern pc i find.02:50
Dr_Willisgreezmunkey:  always backup :)02:50
Dr_Willisgreezmunkey:  my HD that was gouing bad  WAS the backup.. :) but i had moved it to a differnet pc for use as  / and /home  then i discoverd it was having issues.. so now its just a 'video archive disk' for the wifes tv shows.02:51
Dr_Williswork time for me. Bye all02:51
greezmunkeylater02:51
spottyWell this is really unfortunate. Im an out of work web designer. No idea how Im gonna get a new hard drive. Cant earn money to buy said HD without this computer. Catch-22 and all because these hard drives are in such bad shape02:52

johnofwaxmy /etc/hostname has the hostname its suppose to be responding as.03:00
wise_cryptjohnofwax: $ dig localhost ?03:00
johnofwaxI thought my router was foobared, as no computer could see "server" as "server" I had to use the IP address to access shares. Now the router and "server" are the only ones that can access it by the hostname03:01
PwnerJohnnevermind, i found it03:01
johnofwaxfrom the dig command, are we expecting the router's IP as the SERVER: response ?03:01
ShrekLappyjohnofwax, i found that using static leases under services on dd-wrt seemed to make the things work much better for hostnames03:01

arandShrekLappy: No that's incorrect, PAE will show same amount as amd6403:04
icerootrazz1: enable pae in the bios also03:05
wise_cryptjohnofwax: so that its way, put 127.0.0.1 on top the other in your host and hostname :)03:05
icerootShrekLappy: wrong, pae is for using more then 4gb with 32bit03:05
ShrekLappycorrect, but as far as i know it wont show all that memory, even though it can 'use' it03:05
arandrazz1: Just to chack you're running the pae kernel you can look at "uname -a"...03:06
icerootShrekLappy: its showing all memore but can only use 1.8gb per process03:06

phong_question running windows under ubuntu as virtual is the best choice or not?03:08

greezmunkeyjohnofwax: here's an example hosts file: http://paste.ubuntu.com/454763/03:08
johnofwaxI'd like to stick with using the router as you know.. a router. as this ubuntu machine is just a workstation03:08

bastidrazorjohnofwax: you may want to ask in ##networking   they might be able to give some exact solutions03:14
ravibnany help is appreciated03:15

bastidrazorjohnofwax: well, dnsmasq is just a cache for dns' resolved from somewhere else.  bind9 actually does the resolving.. maybe unbound could be solution as well.03:16

ShrekLappyjohnofwax, the reason to flash dd-wrt is to make it help your network be better, i seriously have not had any issues with hostnames since i set it up that way, and i used to have all sorts of issues like you are having. working sometimes, other times no, then it just stopped working altogether. works great when you let dd-wrt handle it03:19
ravibnarand: I looked at the certified hw list on ubuntu.com and this latitude is not listed03:19
johnofwaxexactly! I haven't had any issues either, and have been using DD-WRT for almost a year. "it just works".03:20
ruffleSany1 who knows how to get this button back to its standard appearance? http://img824.imageshack.us/img824/6155/selection004.png03:20
greezmunkeyjohnofwax: shares by name is more a function of netbios (over tcp/ip), where straight IP to name resolution requires each machine to be able to look it up. Choice 1, a local nameserver. Choice 2, manually edit the hosts file on each machine to reflect the names and *static* ip addresses of every other machine.03:20
arandravibn: The best way to find out is really to test it.03:20
johnofwaxI'm going to heed your suggestion and use static leasing03:20
wise_cryptin desktop to use a server kernel just type sudo apt-get install linux-image-server and do update your grub using sudo update-grub that simple and after use tasksel to install common app for server03:20
johnofwaxgreez: the DD-WRT was suppose to handle that conversion.03:20
ravibnarand : thats what I am trying to do please help me understand abt this server 64 bit version03:21
johnofwaxthe weirdest thing is though... starting about an hour ago (when I reset my DD-WRT), nslookup from a remote machine starting working (where it wasnt before..)03:21
johnofwaxalthough ping does not03:21
ravibnarand : like does it support the i686 cpu ?03:21

ubottujohnofwax, please see my private message03:21
wise_crypt!patience | johnofwax03:21
ubottujohnofwax: Don't feel ignored and repeat your question quickly; if nobody knows your answer, nobody will answer you. You can search https://help.ubuntu.com or http://ubuntuforums.org while you wait.03:21
arandravibn: if you want 32bit server you'd get the "i386" version.03:22
greezmunkeyjohnofwax: I can't verify that, as my ddwrt box is out in my work truck, but if it will allow you to create dhcp reservations, and associate a machine name with, then you will be good to go.03:22
johnofwaxthats what I was thinking too.03:22
johnofwaxwould the hosts file on the dd-wrt do the same thing ?03:22
johnofwaxor would it not relay that information to a requesting machine ?03:23
ravibnarand : please be sure on what you trying to answer ? I am clearly explaining that this machine is an i686 cpu03:23
greezmunkeyjohnofwax: if there is one, then that is how it make it work :)03:23
ravibnarand : why are u pointing me to the i38603:23
johnofwaxok. I had tried that earlier, but I'll attempt a few variations of it. maybe put it in the dd-wrt scripts or something.03:23
benjamimAnyone here using Intel core i5 and Radeon graphics ?03:24
greezmunkeyjohnofwax: read the ddwrt docs, that will tell you what to do.03:24

codebrainz_Leif, once that is done you have a blank image, then do mkfs -t yourfstype yourimage.img04:48
WhitorNetRoY, there is a command to do it all on one line ... I had it on another system in the past (but I don't have that cmd scrollback here)04:49
codebrainz_Leif, to format it, once it's formatted, then do; sudo mount -o loop yourimage.img /some/folder04:49

rollmanassembly language status calls or numbers to what they represent04:51
codebrainz_Leif, yeah, whatever you need, i think it's 'vfat'04:51
Guest23742sup you bun too04:51
tsimpsonrollman: what status calls exactly?04:52
codebrainz_rollman, are you talking about IOCTLs or something?04:52
haywirepchello everyone.04:52
rollmanlike movl $1, %eax is a status call to exit04:52
tsimpsonrollman: you mean system calls04:52

SlidingHornarunkumar413, simply right click the panel you dont want and select "remove panel"04:53
bastidrazor!cinelerra > haywirepc04:53
ubottuhaywirepc, please see my private message04:53
codebrainz_Leif, yes, make sure the mount point dir exists before mounting04:54
NetRoYWhitor you can either unset DISPLAY or prefix DISPLAY=: in you are command04:54
WhitorNetRoY, that might work04:54
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: but where will the minimised windows go04:54
codebrainz_tsimpson, i'm not sure exactly what he means to be honest04:54
WhitorNetRoY, how can I unset that in a terminal ?04:54
NetRoYWhitor: shud work for most apps04:54
tsimpsonrollman: generally, you should use the C library calls to save you the trouble. or just look at /usr/include/asm/unistd_32.h (for 32bit)04:54
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: i want to remove the the panel which contains the minimised windows04:55
SlidingHornarunkumar413, you can add the "window list" applet to the remaining panel by right clicking it and selecting "add to panel" and finding the window list app04:55
tsimpsoncodebrainz_: it's a very, very low level interface to the kernel04:55
NetRoYWhitor: "unset DISPLAY; vlc" or "DISPLAY=: VLC" ... go for second one though04:55
WhitorNetRoY, that did it ! unset DISPLAY;04:55
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: ok,thanks04:56

Guest23742gbillings, sounds good04:58
SwedeMikegbillings: sounds like ram might be low, vista really needs 2 gig to run properly.04:59
tsimpsongbillings: it's possible sure, just don't expect blazing performance04:59
gbillingswill my system be slow and laggy? or would it be better to go with XP?04:59
SlidingHornarunkumar413, once you get all the applets you want, you can right click them, select "move" to place them where you want them, and, if you wish, right click again and select "lock to panel" so you can't move them (until you "unlock" them)04:59

ShrekLappygood != best05:00

Leifcodebrainz_, Ah, thanks, I was looking for an unmount command. ;)05:01
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: there are three menus to the left:applications,places and system. instead of three i want a single menu to do the things,i that i can save some space on the panel05:01
SlidingHornShrekLappy, you can use any text editor...I believe gedit has a plugin for syntax highliting05:01

ShrekLappyweird, the xml files i open are all garbage chars (using gedit), so i figured i needed a different editor05:02
SlidingHornarunkumar413, that's what the last thing was telling you about was for...the 3 menu applet is called "menu bar" whereas the single button menu is called "main menu"  rt click "menu bar" > Remove from panel.  rt click panel > add to panel > select Main Menu05:02

OEPOK, here's what I can say. MOSTLY the sound works. Music on average plays OK, unless I seek to a different position to a song then it has a likelihood of getting crackly. If I close out mid-song, it will sometimes freeze up on this one sound.05:10
cspbut will probably have to do it somehow, if I want to use that stupid sync tool, and it's the only option available...05:10
OEPI've been playing around on ZSNES, and I've found that different sampling frequencies work better than others... that's about it really.05:10

SlidingHornjoker:   in your terminal, use the 'cd' command (without quotes) to move to the folder that contains the tar.gz archive (kinda like a zip file in windows) and then run the command05:46
ZykoticK9darren__, ahh sorry thought you where trying some web based webcam.  have you tried amsn?05:46

LittleWolfDesktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures, Public, Templates, Videos, Examples and a bunch of hidden files.06:08
ZykoticK9LittleWolf, if you are using Wubi accessing the host drive is handled differently then "normal" (sorry can't tell you the answer though)06:08

FrozenInfernois there a way to automatically keep grub2 from listing older kernels?06:12
SlidingHornSamual, In my opinion, you're taking an unnecessary risk....why do you want to link to the /root/.themes?06:12
anjilslairedoyle: yes06:12
SamualSlidingHorn, so that applications like synaptic can use my theme06:12
LittleWolfI need to uninstall Wubi/Ubuntu before I partition, right?06:12
SlidingHornSamual, as far as I know, they should anyway....06:12
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, Yeas, recomended06:13
SamualSlidingHorn, no, if you install a theme it is for the user06:13
SamualSlidingHorn, and sudo doesn't use it06:13
SlidingHornSamual, what kind of theme are you talking about?  I'm a bit confused....06:14
VCoolioSamual: that won't work; just create a file /root/gtkrc-2.0 in which you specify what theme root apps should use; those themes should be in /usr/share/themes06:14
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, Once you find your windows hdd from wubi i suggest comping home folder onto windows and then restoring certain configurations from the copied home folder06:14
SlidingHornoh...apparently I was alone in my confusion...never mind me Samual  :)06:14
JoshmuffinI suggest copying**06:14

FrozenInfernois there a way to automatically keep grub2 from listing older kernels?06:15
SlidingHornSamual, for future reference, any time you're using an app with a GUI, you should use gksu instead of sudo06:15
VCoolioSamual: put lines like this in that file: gtk-theme-name="Dust"    gtk-icon-theme-name="Human"06:15

SamualVCoolio, precisely where should the file go again?06:15
VCoolioSamual: /root/.gtkrc-2.006:16
SamualVCoolio, and don't worry, I know how to make the file.06:16
LittleWolfSorry for the newb questions :X06:16
LittleWolfI'm more of a baker than a geek.06:16
ZykoticK9somethinginteres, good luck man :)  not many people ask about bluray in this channel.  i'd check out the status of mplayer support.06:16
SamualI thought /root/ was just / though?06:16
simarFrom where can one access Upstream bug reports ????06:16
SlidingHornLittleWolf, good...send us cookies!  :-P06:16
doyleanjilslaire: There shouldn't be any restarts required for synaptic to update version information right? I've never noticed versions missing in the past.06:17
VCoolioSamual: no, in this case you're going to set 'user settings' for root06:17
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, Windows can access Ubuntu with some configuration but visa versa would be much easier06:17
LittleWolfLast time I sent baked goods over the mail, UPS took too long and they arrived with sentient mold on them.06:17

anjilslairesamual: /root is the home dir for root06:17
SlidingHornarunkumar413, how did things turn out for you?  didn't hear back after the chrome issue06:17
SamualWell I can't cd into /root/ (even with sudo), it says command not found when done with sudo and it says permission denied otherwise06:17
anjilslairedoyle: no reboot. repo, maybe06:18
VCoolioLittleWolf: there is an app for windows that can access ext3 (and recently also ext4 I think), but it will ask to format the new disks, so take care with those06:18
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: no,there is no use ssl2.0 raido button in the under the hood options06:18
SlidingHornSamual, i think you have sudo su for that06:18
xray_tskSamual: cd is not a binary06:18
xray_tskSamual: cd is a command of a bash06:18
SlidingHornhmmm...hold on I'll check mine (i use chromium, so mine might be different)06:18
LittleWolfThat's a little too advanced for me. It took me 4 hours to figure out how to get that sweet desktop cube working.06:18
xray_tskSamual: you should use sudo bash06:18
LittleWolfTotally worth it.06:18
VCoolioSamual: sudo -i    then just cd and touch file06:18
Samualxray_tsk, ahhhh right.06:19
xray_tskSamual: and then cd to everywhere you want06:19

SlidingHornarunkumar413, are you sure?  on mine, there is a scroll bar in the "Under the Hood" tab, and the check box is near the bottom06:20
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, you have to be prepeared to reinstall, often. The only way to have fun is break it and try fix it.06:20
LittleWolfI can't find any simple tutorials to learn from, but I did read that free Ubuntu guide the forums offered.06:20
VCoolioSamual: nope06:20
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, everything. EVERYTHING you need is in the forums or can be found through google.06:21
FrozenInfernois there a way to automatically keep grub2 from listing older kernels?06:21
SlidingHornLittleWolf, you may also want to take a look @ linux mint -- it's based off of ubuntu, but it's aimed at being more "user-friendly" whereas ubuntu itself is aimed at being more "bleeding-edge" -- just a suggestion :)06:21

LittleWolfThe problem I have sometimes, is that I do not know any of the terms or vocabulary. I can't word my specific problems of which I have a lot of.06:22
ZykoticK9FrozenInferno, i uninstall "SOME" of my old kernels to get them out of the grub list ;)  there "might" be a grub2 way as well06:22
SamualAhaha, it worked06:22
SamualThanks.06:22
FrozenInfernoJoshmuffin, update-grub lists the new kernel, but it leaves the old. the only way to get rid of the older kernel is removing the image from synaptic. i was wondering if there's an automatic way06:22
anjilslairedoyle: I originally found it via the synaptic gui06:22
LittleWolfI am breaking a lot of things, and hopefully learning...06:23
VCoolioSlidingHorn: ubuntu bleeding-edge? that's new.. also in my opinion mint is ubuntu with a green theme and it's own way of doing things so it's not portable; but that's offtopic06:23
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: ya found it06:23
SlidingHornVCoolio, i've personally never tried mint, but that's the impression i've gotten from what I've read...but you're right, we're OT...next!  :)06:24

jokerAnyone know if there's an easy way to get my Live USB recognized as the CD drive so I can install packages that have dependencies on the CD?06:29
LittleWolfI'm reading the partitioning your disk link you sent me. I know that inside my computer there is just one hard drive thing. And when I log on windows, there is C: and D: and there's a system restore on D: that takes it all up. So Ubuntu create its OS in C: where I save all my files, or will it's make its own little one?06:30
jokerI've been installing the dependencies manually but I ran into a problem when 2 of said packages depend on each other... I can't install them manually.06:30

=== jay is now known as Guest17830
VCoolioLittleWolf: C: and D: are windows terms; both are partitions; if you create a new partition for linux, windows won't see it, only C: will get smaller06:32
jokerSlidingHorn: Oh I did, that's all sorted.06:32
arunkumar413SlidingHorn: getting one more error this time it is Error 32406:32
jokerSlidingHorn: But now I need ubuntu to recognize my USB as a CD and not a USB06:32
tyler_d2I have added "pre-up iptables-restore < /etc/iptables.up.rules" to my /etc/network/interfaces file and now doing /etc/init.d/networking restart gives me /etc/network/interfaces:5: misplaced option ???06:32
LittleWolfOkay, so it will take its space from C: which has available space?06:32
bobthemiIkmanDue to fortran compatibility errors, I'd like to install g77 on my machine (gcc v3.X). Is there any easy way to get this?06:33
VCoolioLittleWolf: that's up to you where you get it from; if D: is more suitable for you, that's ok; if you use gparted can see the drive as a bar and you can create and size a partition there, make it ext3 or ext4 and apply06:34
jokerAlternatively I would like Synaptic to recognize my USB as a legitimate repository06:35
portablejim_My system can see my CD writer (i.e. it is /dev/sr0, and comes up in Disk Utility) but I cannot read any media that is it (spins but does not mount) and it does not say it has empty media when I place it in the drive.06:35
LittleWolfWell, D: is full.06:35

LittleWolfOh, alright. What about "Home Partition"? Will WIndows and Ubuntu share it?06:38
mneptokdoyle: 2.2 is available from a PPA06:39
VCoolioLittleWolf: depends what you're going to do with it; 4 Gb can be enough, but it won't give much opportunities to install and experiment a lot; I'd say give file system 6 Gb and home (where your files and data and stuff are) what you need; home will not be shared with windows06:39
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, depeding on how you do it home will be inside / (ubuntu partition), however if you make a seperate /home partition you can set it up to be seen by windows, its kind of complicated however06:39
LittleWolfO_O06:39
hecresperhello06:39
LittleWolfSo they both need their own?!06:39
greezmunkeyLittleWolf: windows and ubuntu run on differantly formatted partitions. In the absence of translation (such as samba) they will not interact with each other.06:40
VCoolioLittleWolf: ubuntu has no problems writing to windows partitions, so you can still use files on both06:40

zer010hpw big should a / partition be?06:44
zer010*how06:44
VCoolioLittleWolf: yes, but also consider giving root file system and home their own partitions, so when you're going to do a fresh install some day you won't need to backup all your files; you can do this during installation of ubuntu06:45
Joshmuffinzer010, I would suggest 6-10 gib, if /home is a seperate partition06:45
mneptokdoyle: looks like 2.2 is actually in the backports repo06:45
LittleWolfHow big should they be?06:45
zer010ikool @josh i made mine about 1/2, 19G06:45
anjilslairedoyle: try http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/20286006:45
Joshmuffinzer010, if /home is not on a separate partition / should be 6-10 + however much you need for movies music ect.06:46
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, Read the line above this06:46
VCoolioLittleWolf: root file system will be called /  while home is /home, give / 6Gb and /home the rest for example, 6Gb is enough for root06:46
zer010i didnt know how big / could get. /home is a sparate pat on the same 40G disk06:47
anjilslairedoyle: gotta bail, battery about dead. good luck06:47
VCoolioLittleWolf: /home is where your documents, photos, videos are going to be; only you can tell how much you need there06:47
Joshmuffinzer010, / should be around 6 or 8 in that case06:47
Joshmuffinzer010, /home should be the rest06:47
LittleWolfOkay, 8GB for ubuntu, 6GB for root, and however much I want for Home, right?06:47
zer010i guess / wont be as bloated as i thought06:47
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, ubuntu is on /06:48

doylethanks anjilslaire06:48
VCoolioLittleWolf: no that's double; 6 Gb for root, ? for /home so 'ubuntu' will have 6+? total, ubuntu is human language, not a partition06:49
JoshmuffinLittleWolf, 6gib for / rest for /home. thats the only two partitions you need06:49
zer010tripelb should pipe | it to a text06:49

jefimenkobartounet: that way you can just reboot your system and it will automatically start the install08:24
hoarewildbat: I know.08:24

G-manCan anybody help me get my video card working properly in Lucid Lynx, It's a GeForce 9800GT, it works on my primary monitor, but i can't get the secondary to show anything, any help would be greatly appreciated08:44
YankDownUnderninwa, I think you need to enable "Wallpapers" firstly - if I'm not mistaken...it's towards the bottom in CCSM mate08:45

ninwaYankDownUnder, I've got it figured out, actually. It is the wallpaper plugin, however gnome draws the desktop over-top of it so you have to edit "show_desktop" value in gconf to false first, so it doesn't write over compiz's08:49

icerootpehden: hostname which is in /etc/hosts09:01
Roganit is currently set at 800MHz, which is the lowest possible setting, and regardless of what I do, it will not go up to full speed (or anything other than 800)09:01
Roganany ideas?09:01
icerootpehden: that is resolving the hostname to the ip so the server is running on eth009:02
jo_Does anybody know where to find a ubuntu developpers channel ?09:02
icerootRogan: loading the kernel with acpi_cpufreq?09:02
rwwjo_: why?09:02
icerootjo_: #ubuntu-dev i guess09:02
pehdeniceroot: so i would use the hostname which is also my servers domain09:02

rwwand no guarantee that your hacked-together install won't go horribly wrong when you try to upgrade to the next Ubuntu version10:50
X3Gryllida: this svn trunk doesnt work like that10:50
X3Gryllida: its xbmc svn trunk10:50
bazhangX3, why that method10:50
X3bazhang: because compiling from svn doesnt run over the preinstalled version, so need to make a deb to install it over the currently installed packages from ppa10:52
bazhangX3, some newer greater feature?10:52
GryllidaX3: you have to download it first anyway, maybe try #svn10:53
X3bazhang: the compile use to work b4 the xbmc changes to the addons stuff now the same compile method included on readme doesnt work10:53
X3bazhang & Grylida: I have the svn downloaded already just need help sorting tis out how to build a deb from svn10:54
bazhangX3, sorry, my question was more on what was needed over the PPA version (ie not sufficient)10:54
GryllidaX3: IDK, man make, extract it first, but if it doesn't have build instructions then it10:55
X3svn ppa is bleeding edge whch is fixing issues that the ppa has10:55
Gryllidas badly progrmmed10:55
VCoolioX3: check if there is a README file; normally it's ./autogen.sh && make  && make install, but if you replace the last with checkinstall it makes a deb for you10:55
elyobrww: Thanks for that ... next question .. any idea how /var/www/wtmp gets populated?! I have a script that sends me a message via Growl whenever anyone logs into one of my servers, but also want to add in the users IP address.10:56
X3VCoolio: ok just replace ./autogen.sh && make && make install with ./autogen.sh && make && checkinstall does it?10:56
elyob(external IP address) .. I am guessing that I may be able to use the same systems that this uses.10:56
X3lemme check if it has that10:57
VCoolioX3: yes, first build like normal, then install with sudo checkinstall; install checkinstall first10:57

willyou need to be identified with services11:03
willis what it says11:03
unopwill, you might have to register on freenode first.  ask in #freenode about that.11:03
Xaratasthen do it will11:03
Gneawill: /join #freenode  they can tell you how to do that11:03
VCoolioDazzled: do 'which asterisk' to see what is executed11:03
airtonixH__, investigate /etc/Network-Manager or /etc/NetworkManager11:03
rwwubottu: tell will about register11:03
ubottuwill, please see my private message11:03
AAADazzled  "show channels" is not a 'start command' but rather a command issued by $ asterisk -r after starting gthe service11:03

DazzledVCoolio: Sorry, I don't understand the which command, but I'll look it up11:04

Xaratashm watch the logs what is /dev/dri ?11:06
H__airtonix: managed=false looks not right. Any idea where I can find what process changed that, and when and why ?11:06
VCoolioDazzled: to see what binary / script is executed with a command, you can do 'which something' and you'll get the path to something; if you run asterisk I think something like /usr/bin/asterisk is executed, not /etc/init.d/asterisk11:06
=== mocramis__ is now known as _mocramis
=== _mocramis is now known as Mocramis
AAADazzled  you are a bit confused. first, stuf in /etc/init.d/ are scripts for starting/stoping services.  once that service is started you can interact with it.  in your case, asterisk, you will start the service $ service asterisk start, or /etc/init.d/asterisk start. and then use $ asterisk -r to connect to that service and issue your sip reload commands and the like11:06

wildbatSangeeth, locate the line with the word "swap" and update the UUID from that line11:11
airtonixH__, how bout i post my auto eth0 for you to use  ?11:11
VCooliobrijithmac1: you'll need full paths in cron, and unless it's executable you'll need /bin/sh in front of it too11:12
unopbrijithmac1,  chmod +x /home/brijith/bin/starwall;   while :; do /home/brijith/bin/starwall; sleep 60; done11:12
Dynetrekkhi, i'm considering using either ubuntu or ubuntu server. I have an old desktop I want to use ubuntu on, but I will mainly be using it as a file server; however, I'd also like to be able to do some minimal GUI stuff on it, like firefox11:12
Helloercandyban i dont know:P11:12
unopbrijithmac1, your crontab isn't working because you haven't set DISPLAY, i presume. You need that set to affect GUI environments.11:13
brijithmac1VCoolio: unop: http://pastebin.com/JESi6sd711:13

DynetrekkAAA: but ubuntu, or ubuntu server?11:13
Sangeethwildbat : I had located, http://paste.ubuntu.com/454908/ this has the contents of the file.... What are al to be updated in the SWAP line??11:13
brijithmac1unop:that script is executable11:13
AAAbrijithmac1  I'd say server and then add the light gui stuff by apt11:14
unopVCoolio, ''help :''  # : is a no-op command like true ... so that's another way of writing  ' while true; do ...'11:14
unopbrijithmac1, right, so run the script like i showed you -- not using crontab.11:14

=== Weust`afk is now known as Weust`
unopbrijithmac1, it's better to launch the script in your environment than to use crontab -- because DISPLAY has to be set here and that can vary.11:15
brijithmac1unop: Thats the reason why I am going for crontab11:15
AAAbosky101  I think adduser adds stuff from /etc/skel or at least it used to11:15
Dynetrekkfishcooker: anything will do - I won't use it much anyway. it needs to run firefox and vim :)11:16
unopbrijithmac1, yes, you'll need to be logged in anyway -- even with the crontab approach to work.11:16
wildbatSangeeth, the last line it is ~ just update the UUID to the new one that you get from blkid11:16
Sangeethwildbat : What are to be edited in the SWAP line...11:16
brijithmac1unop:no...11:16
AAADynetrekk  I've not used ubuntu-server for several releases. but that is the jist11:16
unopbrijithmac1, yes ...11:16
brijithmac1unop:Waht I am saying is11:16
DynetrekkAAA: sounds good for my nefarious purposes11:16
AAADynetrekk  maybe just screen and links2 will suit you then?11:17
elyobrww: Well, it is int32_t ut_addr_v6[4] that I want, but am not sure if this gets populated to na ccessible variable sim11:17
brijithmac1unop:if I use as you said with sleep command etc and run it manually11:17
fishcookerDynetrekk : u wont take much effort too.. n irc.client too11:17
brijithmac1unop:every time have to run it manually11:17
elyobrww: Well, it is int32_t ut_addr_v6[4] that I want, but am not sure if this gets populated to an accessible variable like $HOST etc11:17
DynetrekkAAA: screen and links2? what is that?11:17
Sangeethwildbat : But, i have the file to be readonly!!!??11:17

Guest77318if you use crontab make sure you have cron11:18

DazzledThanks AAA and VCoolio, it worked!11:19
AAA!gksu | Sangeeth11:19
ubottuSangeeth: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)11:19
DynetrekkAAA: ah, I know links, or lynx, I've sen one of them before. I'd prefer firefox, I'd say.11:19
anonymous_can anyone tell me why getch() doesn't work  in linux? what 's the alternative command ?11:19
wildbatSangeeth, gksu is GUI version of sudo11:19
AAADazzled  hack the system!11:19
AAADynetrekk  hehe, just depends on how minimal you want to go :)11:19
unopbrijithmac1, because the DISPLAY environment variable is not set. like i said, it needs to be set if you are going to affect the GUI.11:19
SangeethThanks all!11:19
DynetrekkAAA: sure, but if I have to learn new stuff, it will take me more effort than I'd care to.11:20
DynetrekkAAA: I will of course install ssh-server and tell it what to do from my laptop ASAP anyway.11:20
redballoonhey all, I'm looking for a graphic flash editor under ubuntu.11:20
unopbrijithmac1, and since the DISPLAY can vary -- it's better to have your GUI invoke the script rather than use crontab.11:20
AAADynetrekk  effort + learning = hacking = good11:20
DynetrekkAAA: I agree, for most purposes11:20
AAAhacking is not derogative11:21
DynetrekkAAA: is it problematic to set up network services on ubuntu desktop?11:21
DynetrekkAAA: I agree :)11:21
Astro_Anybody know how to reinstall windows from ubuntu without a disk or flash drive?11:21
brijithmac1unop:you said we can set DISPLAY in cron. can you say how ?11:21

AAADynetrekk  no. ifconfig and man are your friends11:21
Guest77318Astro_, y11:21
VCooliobrijithmac1: add a line on top like: DISPLAY=:0.011:22
redballoonAstro_, possibly via firewire?11:22

Astro_New hard drive. Big enough that I wanna dual boot it. Got no firewire, no disks big enough to hold windows, no flash drives. Just gparted and the internet.11:22
H__airtonix: the kde applet just says all networking is disabled. That's why I resorted to using ifconfig and friends.11:23
DynetrekkAAA: great, thanks... I'm thinking about SSH and possibly some network file share to have at home11:23
VCooliobrijithmac1: do "echo $DISPLAY" to see what you need for :0.0, probably the same though11:23
unopbrijithmac1, or change your crontab line to.   */1 * * * *  DISPLAY=:0.0 /home/brijith/bin/starwall11:23
redballoonAstro_, maybe install it on your old harddrive, then mount that drive from the new one, and shift windows onto it from there?11:23
DynetrekkAAA: is the alternate install CD faster?11:24
Astro_Don't have the old hard drive either.11:24

redballoonOr an sd card maybe. Don't know how that would work though11:27
H__airtonix: thanks. I'll use it. However I think it won't solve the issue, I assume networkmanager decided to remove the one that was there for unknown reason. I'll find out tonight ;-) Thanks for your time and help so far.11:27

brijithmac1unop:leave the meaning of that content . Actually its working11:37
AAAcandyban  heh, just saying...11:37
brijithmac1unop: it is the out put when it run properly11:38
mcs-chewho can help?11:38
unopbrijithmac1, does your gconftool line work when run under a shell?11:38
candybanAAA, they replaced SysV with upstart ... if that means inittab goes, I have no problem with it IF they have good docs as to how it works now11:38
brijithmac1unop:I have treid the same script from terminal and its working file11:39
unopbrijithmac1, I have to leave now, you're on the right track - hope someone else can help you sort this.11:39
AAAcandyban  agreed11:39
X3candyban: the wiki seems adquate11:39
candybanX3, I looked at the wiki ... but I can't find e.g. which service it starts first ... how it "resolves" dependencies etc11:39
brijithmac1unop:sure no problem11:39
X3candyban: well dont they have a channel or email to ask the question11:39
AAAcandyban  not seeing S.$ and K.$ in init.d/ is scarey11:40
X3candyban: I would help if I knew how to11:40
candybanX3, perhaps you can point me to the relevant page on the wiki. I have 2 scripts which have "Required-Start: $network" ... they FAIL because the network is not started "yet"11:40
AAAk"ARG1 = 'SELECT prefix") in new stack11:41
candybanX3, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't ... so I added a 5 seconds delay in 1 script (changing it from S20 to S60 didn't work either) and that seems to work11:42
AAAcandyban  X3 does /etc/rc.local still work after upstart?11:42
candybanX3, the main benefit of Linux over Windows is reliability ... if you can't even rely on the fact that services get started or not11:43
X3candyban: services are started either /etc/init.d/appname start | stop | restart or service appname start | stop |restart11:43
candybanAAA, rc.local works as before11:43
X3so network would be11:43
X3ser11:43
AAAcandyban  so why not put your failsafe script there?11:43
X3candyban: service networking start or /etc/init.d/networking start11:44
candybanAAA, because that is silly ...it should work properly11:44
AAAcandyban  ah, the classic debate11:44
candybanAAA, if I have to do everything myself and cannot rely on the normal procedure, I can better run LFS11:44
X3candyban: service networking start or /etc/init.d/networking start11:44
AAAcandyban  ubuntu 10.4 is so many miles away from potato that these bugs mean so little in the scheme...11:45
candybanX3, network starts fine (90% of the time) ... but the thing is that snmpd tries to start before eth3 is brought up ... so it fails because it can't find/bind the IP address it is assigned to11:45
X3candyban: then put a failsafe11:46
candybanX3, I would be happy if I could force upstart to process the scripts in series rather than in parallel11:46
X3candyban: ensure that snmpd if started is stopped before that11:47
AAAcandyban  rc.local and research/hack the real solution11:47
candybanX3, I did in one script, but how broken is a system if can't even boot properly11:47
candybanX3, how can I do that using upstart?11:47
AAAcandyban  special cases and stuff..11:47

X3candyban: did you start the snmpd after the newtork is up11:48
candybanX3, SysV is very simple ... SXXscript is started before SYYscript11:48
AAAX3  candyban that is the issure11:48
candybanX3, it has a dependency (Required-Start: $network)11:48
candybanX3, I just installed apt-get installed snmpd11:48
AAAcandyban  have you tried the pre-up statements in /etc/network-interfaces/blah11:49
maurizio__Hi, does someone can help me to connect via ftp to my nas? it is attached by lan interface to a modem router. I've enabled portforwarding on port 21 on it, matching with the nas static ip adress. On the nas I've enabled the ddns service.but When I browse it i can reach only the router web interface11:49
candybanAAA, /etc/network-interfaces/blah? (unless you mean /etc/network/interfaces, but it has nothing to do with that)11:50
candybanAAA, those are just commands it will perform before bringing up the interface ... the problem is with the service which is started before the interface is up11:50
candybanAAA, and no, I will not create up commands to start my services11:51
AAAcandyban  just brainstorming11:51
X3candyban: try reading this http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/7033/1/11:52
AAAcandyban  I hear rh is also moving to upstart11:52
candybanAAA, I don't care about rh ... I care about my systems (debian based)11:53
X3candyban: I think that may help u11:53
candybanX3, then the even "network ready" is sent incorrectly11:53
candybanX3, it should be sent when ALL interfaces are properly configured, not e.g. when the first one is configured11:54

fif0how can i change the permissions of a mounted iso11:54
=== imaginativeone__ is now known as Imaginativeone
fif0chmod doesn't work11:54
X3fif0: you have to unmount it11:54
candybanX3, Upstart, in contrast, is event based. An "event" can be something like "booting" ... or it can be a lot more specific, like "the network is ready to use now"11:55
X3cant change permissions on a mounted file11:55

fif0I unmounted the iso, changed the permissions but the filesystem is read only11:56
Imaginativeonejoin #python11:57
candybanX3, ps. they are referring to /etc/event.d where the scripts are supposed to be stored, but on 10.04 server it is in /etc/init11:57
AAAfif0  use the mount option $ mount -o rw11:57
X3fif0: you asked how to change permissions11:57
fif0I want to change the permissions of the filesystem11:57
abhineshAAA: what problem11:57
AAAabhinesh  huh?11:57
abhineshuse chmod 777 use command11:58
abhineshAAA: use it11:58
eddyX3, the sound volume does not appear in the Add to Panel list. i'm guessing it's an applet which loads into the notification area11:58

e-DIO-thi there: got a problem on mounting an nfs partition on boot. the fstab file works [proof giving mount -a], but on boot it doesn't want to work. Any idea?!12:01
AAAabhinesh  yes. chmod == change file modifications12:01
arandfif0: I think you'll have to specify the permissions at mount time. Looki into the options for ISO in "man mount"12:02
candybane-DIO-t, can you check your syslog and look for errors?12:02
candybane-DIO-t, I think I have similar issues with other services12:02
X3e-DIO-t: as long as both the server and client are configured ok NFS should mount at each boot12:02

candybanmcs-che, what do you get when you run "sudo update-initramfs -c -k all"12:08
X3e-DIO-t: Like I said atm your permissions dont allow it hence you need sudo12:09
abhineshuse sudo12:09
e-DIO-t....well...so you mean that the "startup run of fstab" is not made by root?!12:09
X3e-DIO-t: change the permissions and sudo is not required anymore and can be ounted at startup12:09
X3e-DIO-t: no fstab is executed by user12:10
e-DIO-t...oh well..so that explains everything :P12:10
e-DIO-twhat if I change root:admin with "some_backup_dedicated_user:hisgroup"?12:10
