ColMustrdJordan_U, the bios goes by too fast for me to tell if I am pressing the right button to get into it. But it appears that may be the issue, the keyboard may not work on the bios screen00:00
Jordan_UColMustrd: You can also change which menu entry is booted by default, and unhide the menu at boot, by editing /etc/default/grub then running "sudo update-grub"00:00
etholanickserv tells me my nickname ethola is not a registered nickname00:00
etholashall i just ignore that00:01
ColMustrdJordan_U, nevermind, I did verify that the keyboard does work in the bios.00:01

etholaethola is not a registered nickname.00:02
etholaok thx00:02
Jordan_UColMustrd: Odd, no idea why shift isn't bringing up the menu then. Editing /etc/default/grub (specifically GRUB_DEFAULT=) should still work though.00:03
FirefisheIn Kubuntu 10.04 (kde 4.4.4/5), how do I make the system use nm-applet at startup, rather than knetwork-manager?00:05

Firefisheethola: Under the Visual Effects Tab, select the Extra option, located at the bottom.00:15

Schuenemannhey, how do I create an environment variable systemwide?00:20
Firefisheethola:  ATI and Nvidia have, probably (not sure for ATI), Ubuntu packages.00:20
Firefisheethola: Also be sure to specify 32bit or 64bit, depending on your architecture.00:21
Firefisheethola: Meaning, more precisely, your distro.00:21

Firefisheethola:  or you can do it in /query00:29
Jordan_Uethola: You should probably stick to the default driver. If no driver was offered in System > Administration > Hardware Drivers then the driver you are about to download probably either doesn't support current versions of Ubuntu or doesn't support your card.00:29

ubottuKongfuPanda: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.00:30

KongfuPandaI use it for Microsoft office,Firefox, World of warcraft, halo, counter strike,mathematica, origin, CIsco VPN cleint and other scientific software00:31
Firefisheethola: No problem.  When you go to the pastebin site, like www.pastebin.ca (there's a lot more, too), you just paste your text, press the Paste Button on the page, then you'll get a URL in the Address Bar and you copy *that*, then paste it on a single line in channel.00:31
etholaFirefishe: ok i stick with the integrated driver ,thx for help but how about the widgets and transparency ?00:32
Firefisheethola: Well, transparency is usually a function of Compositing...which is a feature of the more-fuller-featured driver.00:32
Firefisheethola: What you might do is do some googling around the ATI forums, web pages, etc.  Do some research, then you might try loading something.  Just *check it out first!* ;)  Always a good idea.00:33

FirefisheJordan_U: Thanks. :)00:35
etholaJordan_U: the numbers 148500:35
Firefishexomp: Looks like you need libtool-dev00:35
Firefishexomp: Any time you get a command not found error during a compile, it usually means the dev libraries aren't there.00:36
xompFirefishe cool would I just "apt-get install libtool-dev" for that?00:36
xompI'm not familiar with compiling00:36
omaniis there a way to add user on a server so that can log in local and get their account exported? is this the ldap, nis or nfs method?00:36
Jordan_Uethola: Then the driver you are using currently supports transparency and other fancy effects already.00:36
Firefishehold on...let me check your output again00:36
omaniand whats the difference00:36
Firefishexomp:  bring up a terminal, type in:  sudo apt-get install libtool <double TAB>00:38
Jordan_Uethola: What do you mean when you say that you want your desktop to be transparent?00:38
Firefishexomp:  or use Synaptic, and do a search for libtool-dev00:38
xompFirefishe I'm using SSH (it's an ubuntu webserver)00:39
etholaJordan_U: ok thx , i mean the panels like in windows 7 , but as what i read ubuntu 11 maybe transparent so i may wait for that00:39
FirefisheSSH is a protocol for Secure SHell session.00:39

Jordan_Uethola: The default pannels don't support transparency very well, but there are other panels and docks that you can use. And just so you know, if you like fancy desktop effects there are tons available. You can even have your desktop on a spinning 3D cube, with windows that burst into flame when you close them :)00:43

Firefishexomp:  No problem.  I'll help as best I can.  I'm not a code expert, but I'll share what I know.00:46
etholaJordan_U : ok but i don t know much about setting up graphic effects and themes and iam unsure about searching at the web as i get different results00:47
Firefishexomp:  These things are best done in sequence.  After installing libtool, redo the compile. We're you ./configure ing?00:47
Firefishexomp:  One thing you really need is this:  sudo apt-get install build-essential00:48
Firefishexomp:  Installs the gcc compiler and other basic things to compile things.00:48
etholaJordan_U : but i like to use what power my graphic card maybe have and add effects and themes ,  the flames and rotation cube seems like eye candy for me , i would like to have that :)00:49
Jordan_Uethola: Themes can be configured in System > Preferences > Appearance, and there is also a very basic option for desktop effects there. If you want to have more options for desktop effects then install ccsm or simple ccsm (Compiz Config Settings Manager) from Applications > Ubuntu Software Center.00:49
Firefisheethola: You only need to search for what applies to these things:  1. Your particular Distro, 2. Your particular graphics card, 3. Your particular computer:  If laptop, your graphics chip.  If a desktop, then your motherboard make and model may have issues, too, but it's usually similar.00:50
Firefisheethola: If your desktop is a standard, commercially available model (HP, Dell, etc.), then there are forums for most of the major brands, and a few of the not-so-major ones, too. ;)00:51
Firefishexomp: Any trouble?00:51

hullohello, what is the easiest way to set up dual booting on an already running ubuntu install?01:23
hullodual booting windows*01:23
etholaFirefishe : but i can use for daily tasks as in gnome ?01:23
Firefisheethola: Of course.  It's a complete desktop environment01:24
Firefisheethola:  If you want to try it, just do this:  sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop .. It takes a bit of time to download it all, just letting you know that.01:24
ChogyDanLil: whats the issue?01:24
ImaLamerhullo, if you already have ubuntu running your fear is that win will overwrite GRUB01:25
PENAShullo, throw your hard drive in the bin and walk away01:25
sebsebsebhullo: put Windows on after Ubuntu, and it will go over the bootloader, making Windows only boot, and making so Ubuntu will boot up again is a bit of a pain01:25
killminusninethese are open, http browsable repositories. You can see the file that apt is attempting to fetch and that it does not exist.01:25
Firefisheethola:  the .. was just to separate the sentence, by the way01:25

Firefishereedsw:  yep, but will that work for the meta package alone?01:25
DarwinSurvivorI'm trying to make a custom desktop launcher that I can drag a file onto and have that file's path/filename used as an argument in the launcher01:25
sebsebsebhullo: maybe you can just virtual machine WIndows inside Ubuntu, with enough RAM and such.  Fine for most apps not 3D games for example though.01:26
Firefisheethola: gnome is quite easy, and predictable.01:26
ImaLamerhullo, though i think it can be restored with something like a live CD though01:26
PENASFirefishe, yes01:26
DarwinSurvivorex: "gpsbabel -igpx -f<filename> -ogarmin -F/dev/ttyUSB0"01:26
LilI have Ubntu installed on a flash drive, it does the normal dual boot thing with XP and goes into the command line which I was compleely unprepared for, I do not know aht to do next01:26
iflemakillminusnine what happens if you in a terminal     sudo apt-get update    ? Fail? What about the proprietary hardware drivers interface?01:26
hullosebsebseb: see my last statement ;)01:26
PENAStake out the usb drive and walk away01:26
DarwinSurvivorthe idea is that what-ever file is dragged onto the launcher would be used as the "-f" argument (having a space after the -f works just fine as well)01:26
Jordan_Upondera: hfsplus, but you might as well just let OSX's installer do it (it probably won't install to an existing filesystem anyway)01:26
sebsebsebhullo: you can run Steam with WIne, also apparantly a native version is coming soon01:26
reedswFirefishe, as far as I knew it removed everything. I swapped out till i ran into xfce and havent gone any further01:27
LilI have been reding docs until Im so confused Its making me nuts01:27
PENASLil, step away from the keyboard01:27
bsmith093everytime i try and copy a file from a windows network share on ubuntu lucid i get a permission denied error even if im root01:27
Lilno kiding01:27
FirefisheDarwinSurvivor: I believe you can set up custom commands from within the Launcher's setup dialog, can't you?  Run a custom command line argument?01:27
reedswFirefishe, and if I was questionable on it I ran sudo apt-get autoremove and then say that it would remove the libs that went with it01:27
ChogyDanLil: yeah, that sucks.  I don't know much about installing to a flash drive.01:27
ImaLamerLil, that's maybe the only good advice PENAS will give too01:27
ponderajordan_u so osx will take unpartitioned space and format it?01:28
Lilwell iot did not work exactly the ay the be site said but it doesboot01:28
Firefishereedsw: Thank you.  I ran into this problem the last time I installed the distro.  This helps for future reference.01:28
PENASthrow it in the trash01:28
DarwinSurvivorFirefishe: yes, but it would be nice for the commandline argument to match what-ever file is dragged onto the launcher, is this even possible?01:28
PENASspit on it01:28
ChogyDanLil: what site?  pendrivelinux.com?01:28
Jordan_Upondera: Yes.01:28
cannonfodderhey look at this movie trailer  peoplez   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzza-ZbEY70&feature=popular01:28
trismDarwinSurvivor: if you're editing the desktop file, %f expands to the file's path01:28
Lilthat sounds familiar01:28
ponderathanks jordan_u01:28
Lilive been up al night on this and all day so my brain is fuzzy at this point on details like that01:28
ImaLamerLil, you likely are having issues loading X? or that setup has no X? (someone jump in...)01:28
Jordan_Upondera: You're welcome.01:29
FirefisheDarwinSurvivor: I don't know.  You may need several custom launchers.  Trying to convert a gpx file, eh?01:29
DarwinSurvivortrism: wouldn't that be the path of the launcher? I want the path of the file dragged ONTO the launcher to be used :(01:29

trismDarwinSurvivor: no I mean the file you drag onto the launcher01:29
DarwinSurvivorthe only argument that is not hardcoded is the filename, everything else is static01:29
PENASdrag the launcher to the main menu01:29
DarwinSurvivortrism: really? cool01:29
Firefisheethola: kdm isn't bad, but you might want gdm as a default login/display manager.  It just depends on how your system behaves.01:29

PENASthrow away the 10.04 iso01:30
ImaLamertibman, welcome back :P01:30
killminusnineiflema: I am sufficiently embarassed, but will admit that apt-get update actually did the trick. I guess running that directed apt to a different address. Thank you kindly, good sir or madame01:30
ShadowTypos_Kings: How do I get the GRUB to let me see ubuntu and windows? >> I get a prompt instead of...whatever I should have?01:30
Lilit boot to a comand line and the typinfg says grub. i figured out grub is a progarm but I have NO CLUE as to waht to type in to  somethign like gnome or even KDE to com eup,. complete newbie here, been drooling over gettign this installed for years andnow  the curser jsut blinks at me..roflmao01:30
tibmanhello again imalamer01:30
Liluse ubuntu01:31
PENASLil, sounds like the user is the problem01:31
Jordan_UShadow: Is it a "rescue> " prompt or a "grub> " prompt?01:31
Firefisheethola: To reconfigure it later, you just do this:  sudo dpkg-reconfigure kdm , or sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm.  Either/or will bring up a dialog that lets you choose either one.  Then you just either log out and restart the xserver, or, if you have nothing to save:  sudo service gdm restart or sudo service kdm restart01:31
iflemakillminusnine its best to update before installing software and upgrading.... uses next to no bandwidth... most worth it.. :)01:31
bsmith093apparently i only get a permission denied error when i try to copy a specific file to ubuntu from the windows share01:31
ChogyDanLil: are you trying to just run the iso?  are you trying to install to the harddrive?01:31
ShadowGrub, it says grub recovery>" or something like that01:31

Lilrun the iso01:32
ShadowAfter install from live CD, yes!01:32
Firefisheethola: gdm is the gnome display manager.  kdm is the kde display manager.  I find gdm works a bit more stably with my particular laptop.01:32
Random832Shadow: you need to make a /boot partition in the first 1024 cylinders [8gb or so] of the disk01:32

PENASLil, seems like another case of the user being the error01:34
Random832ImaLamer: is it possible to move a windows partition to the 'right' and place a primary partition [for /boot] before it, without disturbing the windows installation?01:34

ubottuPENAS: The guidelines for using the Ubuntu channels can be found here: http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines01:34
codebrainzLil, just drops to the grub prompt on boot?01:34
Random832i had to make a /boot but i wiped windows so it was simpler for me01:35
Lilcodebrain Yes01:35
ChogyDanLil: ignore PENAS, as he is just trollin / joking around01:35
Jordan_ULil: Shadow: Can you run this script http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/ from a LiveCD and pastebin the RESULTS.txt that it produces?01:35
codebrainzLil, fresh install?01:35
PENASLil, seems like another case of the user being the error01:35
ImaLamerRandom832, not likely - just as if you moved your /boot to another partition, the boot manager will lock01:35
ShadowUhm...sure, I can try...01:35
Typos_Kingtibman:    I don't even know what the 3rd step is to begin with heeh01:35
Lil coebrain fresh like 2 hours ago01:35
ImaLamerRandom832, though if you resize and move the volume with the right tools it may 'fix' all that for you01:35
Random832ImaLamer: what about leaving the windows partition as sda1 and making the /boot sda2 [but earlier physically]01:36
codebrainzthanks IdleOne01:36
Random832i know it's possible, some tools complain about it though01:36
Liljordan I have no idea hoqw to do that01:36
etholaFirefishe : sorry but the list rolls so fast so i cant copy the commands for login manager but is it bether to chat in separate windond one to one ?01:36
Firefisheethola:  yes, no problem :)01:36
ChogyDanLil: of course, the easiest solution would be to just burn a cd, can you do that?01:36
Random832Shadow: whatever you do, you'll need to boot into the livecd and open gparted, so start doing that01:36
Lilout of compatible CDrs. have to order online01:36
ShadowI am on the livecd....01:37
Lilthis is an antique that still works01:37
Shadowgparted, I have to download that, right?01:37
ImaLamerRandom832, I think the problem is to move to the 'right' would require a reboot and then you're hosed, doing it live would allow you to modify the bootloader before reboot :(01:37
killminusninewell, before I go, does anyone have any strong opinions on linuxmint?01:37
Random832no, it comes with the livecd01:37
Random832make sure all your hard drives are unmounted01:37
ShadowWhere is it located?01:37
Random832ImaLamer: huh?01:37
codebrainzLil, define antique01:37
Random832Shadow: alt-f2 type gparted01:37
dodororu90cool i enter01:37
snarksteri need to 277,000 txt files in different folder to one folder. what is my best approach on this?01:37
ImaLamermoving the drive to the right would be a 'move' and done on a non-live partition01:37
Lilfound the CD i ordered months ago . that would bot but i figred it is so old  i would not know how to update it01:37
ChogyDanLil: btw, grub is the bootup program.  It runs at boot and figures out which OS to run  (if that helps you to understand what's happening..)01:38
ShadowI need to be root to run it >>01:38
Lillet me pull info up brb01:38
sjdurfeyso im getting this error whenever i go to run an opengl program in ubuntu 10.04 64-bit .... freeglut (./a.out): Unable to create OpenGL 1.0 context (flags 0, profile 0)  .....  im not really sure what this means, as ive just started learning opengl, anyone have any ideas?01:38
Random832ImaLamer: well, yeah - i know _that_ - he can't boot his hard disk now anyway01:38
tibmanoh well, i guess I will wait to a new edition of ubuntu comes out to try it for the first time01:38
ImaLamerRandom832, oh well then hose it :)01:38
Random832Shadow: oh yeah, gksu gparted sorry01:38
ShadowOk, it's loading01:39
codebrainzsnarkster, move or copy or link?01:39
Random832Shadow: i am going to recommend now that if you have any important data on your hard disk you should back it up to an external drive or CDR. what you are about to do could make windows unbootable.01:39
ImaLamertibman, maybe keep an eye out for daily builds of the CDs?01:39
switch10_snarkster: *.txt01:39
snarkstercodebrainz: move01:39
iflemakillminusnine check it out.... it has a live option I believe... Thats not exactly an Ubuntu support question ;)01:39
Random832[er, even moreso]01:39
ShadowDoes it matter if windows is unbootable? I can still recover data from the files, right?01:39
Random832maybe i should have said rather that it may or may not fix windows01:39
codebrainzsnarkster, mv folder1/* folder2/    should be fine01:39
snarksterShadow you can recover data from dead hard drives01:39
Random832still good to keep backups - especially since you're going to be working with an NTFS partition01:40
ImaLamerShadow, Random832 - that is good advice. Use the live CD to move/copy data to the USB drive, etc01:40
killminusnineiflema: Using it now. More just wondered if there was a "stay away" attitude. Thanks again. Off I go.01:40
Lilcompaq Evo D310 Xp pro sp 3 1993 Mhz   upgraded as far as it can go01:40
Random832[there is no chkdsk for ntfs that runs under linux]01:40
codebrainzsnarkster, it should be pretty quick to move, just don't use the -v option01:40
snarkstercodebrainz: Im not looking for the directories just the txt files01:40
ShadowI don't have anything I really need to copy so...01:40
switch10_snarkster: mv *.txt /dest01:40
Random832ok... the first thing you want to do in gparted01:40
Jordan_ULil: Could you give a brief summary of your situation. What version of Ubuntu did you install? Is there anything preventing you from downloading the latest Ubuntu and installing it to a CD? Etc.01:40
Random832you see your windows partition at the beginning of the drive, right?01:40
snarksterswitch10_: they are in different directories01:40
dodororu90but the real shirt is01:40
codebrainzsnarkster, what I said will move all the text files from folder1 to folder201:41
ImaLamerShadow, Random832 - why are we worried about LBA? How old is this BIOS?01:41
Random832edit that partition and resize it leaving an area of free space (only needs a couple hundred megabytes) to the left of it01:41
codebrainzsnarkster, well, it will MOVE everything mv folder1/*.txt folder2/  for just text01:41
ShadowLBA? I don't know...mine is 4 or so years old01:41
Random832ImaLamer: he got a completely failed boot [grub recovery mode] immediately after the livecd - that's the only thing i know that as a symptom of.01:41
snarkstercodebrainz: but will it move all txt files from 1100 different directories to one directory?01:41
Random832*immediately after install, first boot, specifically01:42
ImaLamerRanakah, oh i saw that01:42
Random832and i know that was what solved that for me01:42
codebrainzsnarkster, no, not with *.txt (unless the dirs end in that by chance)01:42
Seeker`dodororu90: please stop that01:42
ImaLamerRandom832, that is the *right* way to do things, I recommend it01:42
Lilversion 10.04 clean fresh install to  8 gig USB .  when it boots i get the choice of xp or ubuntu. click on ubuntu and it goes to curser with grub at the command line and then the promtp. i want to know how to chnge from the grub prompt to a gui like gnome or kde and set it to automatically load a gui so i dont have to fol with that any more01:43
ImaLamerShadow, what version of windows01:43
ShadowXP SP#01:43
Random832ImaLamer: which?01:43
Random832oh, having a /boot?01:43
codebrainzLil, at the boot menu, read the directions for how to Edit.  edit the ubuntu one, and in there you'll need to make some changes01:44
ImaLamerShadow, okay, good because vista + will mess with your /boot partition (I believe)01:44
LilIve read so many different dos trying to figure this one out i gave up , my nbrain is soo full01:44
ShadowThe Gparted thing? should I do something with it now?01:44
Random832ImaLamer: i think that's the MBR01:44
Random832Shadow: did you resize your windows partition to the right?01:44
ChogyDanLil: do you have xp installed to that usb drive also?01:44
ShadowUhm...I am not sure what your talking about, so probably not01:44
Typos_KingLil:     and you get those choices even if the usb stick with ubuntu installation isn't plugged in? while XP boots ok, right?01:44
Random832ok now create a partition in the space you opened up - it might not let you, i'm not sure if gparted lets you make partitions out of physical order01:45
ImaLamerRandom832, it's the goofy vista bootloader, seems like they are trying to copy grub01:45

h3XIs there any way to see the progress gparted has made in copying a filesystem?01:47
ChogyDanLil: what version is the old cd you mentioned?01:47
ImaLamerthis is a common issue installing windows with an external drive01:47
kulinorNoz3001; the dhcp server assgien only 10.1.1.x01:47
Lilmakes sense since i set it up that way like directions said to have it boot to USB forst01:47
codebrainzLil, it's probably because Ubuntu decided to call your drive something it isn't anymore, using the misnamed UUID naming system, it's pretty easy to fix01:48

Random832Shadow: no, you need ot NOT have your drive mounted, for gparted to work01:48
TMacAlex, is it a network printer, or is it plugged directly into your computer?01:48
ShadowUHm...I have three partitions now that I moved it...I think one was made when I installed the ubuntu side by side with windows thing? So do I need to be doing this at all?01:48
ShadowAnd I have to mount my drive for the boot script, don't I?01:49
Random832can you post a picture of your gparted window?01:49
codebrainzLil, you need to follow the directions in grub to edit the boot menu items, (i think it's just pressing 'e' when the ubuntu line is selected)01:49
Noz3001kulinor, it looks like something a router would assign as default01:49
ImaLamerRandom832, codebrainz - I couldn't install win7 without removing the external drive - windows doesn't allow install to USB and gets confused when it sees USB as drive001:49
Random832Shadow: boot script?01:49
ShadowYeah, jordan asked me to do the boot script thing...01:49
Shadowboot info script01:49
codebrainzImaLamer, but ubuntu will run fine, if not slow, from usb01:50
TMacHow do I use bash to convert .emf files to .svg? I've looked into the CLI for Inkscape but it only seems to do .svg->.png, and ImageMagick only does raster images.01:50

Random832Jordan_U: i doubt you need it mounted for that [i also doubt the sript will tell you anything you don't already know, but that's me01:50
h3Xperhaps he means grub?01:50
LilCode brain , thaks Ill try that and see if it works01:50
codebrainzLil, you're missing the 2nd step still01:51

Random832go ahead and run it though01:51
Lilis this room supposed to be aabkle to copy and paste stuff ? I can get it to work?01:51
ChogyDanLil: I think for what you are trying to do, you shouldn't get a choice between xp and ubuntu.  It should just boot ubuntu.  Editing grub will be hard.  I think it would be better to start over with better directions01:51
Random832Shadow: i don't care - imageshack, photobucket, tinypic, flickr - whatever you already post pics on01:51
Liloh ok, still listening intenetly01:51

loopidityhow to update libc6 ?01:52
ImaLameri.e. not use the other anymore01:52
Random832ImaLamer: swap partitions to be activated at boot are listed in /etc/fstab, and you use swapon/swapoff to change at runtime01:52

codebrainzLil, reinstall will fix nothing, ubuntu/grub is identifying your ubuntu drive as some arbitrary ID that is not longer valid, you need to tell it the valid name of the partition where ubuntu is installed01:54
ImaLamerRandom832, okay cool01:54
codebrainzLil, it wouldn't be an issue if it were on a fixed disk01:54

Random832ok. you've managed to install ubuntu on the external drive, by accident [and the installer somehow screwed up setting up grub]02:01
DarwinSurvivorcodebrainz: that's what it does in Arch Linux, but in ubuntu I get an obscure (cell-phone-like) entry in /dev/usb/... :(02:02
tripelbhi, brasero does not see a blank cd. what's up?9.10 - yes ubuntu will see a burnt cd. -- This is totally new today.----> Installed Gnomebaker. Failed. why?  http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/dthSQbYs02:02
codebrainzLil, on the line there with kernel  vmlinuz root=UUID=  you need to replace the UUID part with the partition device name02:02
Lilrandom if yout alking to me no i did it on purpose02:02
Jordan_UShadow: If Ubuntu is on the Firewire drive, and your BIOS doesn't support booting from firewire, then that explains everything.02:02
DarwinSurvivorttyUSB0 is what i WANT, right now it doesn't do anything (in ubuntu)02:02
freedomsorry i'm biggner02:02

codebrainzDarwinSurvivor, you could try dmesg | tail -n 20 after plugging in the device to see if it's getting recognized properly02:03
Random832Shadow: just open gparted /dev/sdb, delete the linux partitions, and resize the windows one to fill the whole disk02:03
ShadowThey are different hard drives? @.@ Ok...will try02:03
SegFaultAXIs there a way to essentially redo the hardware detection and auto configuration of hardware?02:04
DarwinSurvivor"new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5" then "configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice"02:04
Random832you can do that now, or you can do it after you install ubuntu on the internal drive02:04
DarwinSurvivorcodebrainz: ^02:04
greenjonfreedom: i'm unable to help you on the issue, but please give everyone else a little bit more information (i.e. version of ubuntu you're on and what kind of wireless card you have)02:04
codebrainzLil, you need to replace that root=UUID=  with something like root=/dev/sdb1 (or whatever your usb drive is named)02:04
ChogyDanLil: Im going to let you go with codebrainz.  I still think you'll have an easier time starting over, and getting help following a single doc.  You should be able to just install the iso to a usb, set the bios to boot usb, and then go.  You shouldn't get a grub menu with a choice between xp and ubuntu unless you do something fancy02:04
codebrainzDarwinSurvivor, i wonder if it's detecting it as a "mass storage device" type thing?02:05
DarwinSurvivorcodebrainz: in arch it displays a usb/tty converter being initialized02:05
greenjonfreedom: put all of it together on one line and hopefully someone will know the answer and can help you :)02:05
Jordan_UShadow: You're going to need to either install Ubuntu to /dev/sda, the drive that has windows on it, or at least put Ubuntu's /boot partition there (the rest of Ubuntu can be on the firewire drive as after the kernel is loaded it can read the firewire drive even though the BIOS can't)02:05
Random832Jordan_U: he says he didn't intend to put it on the firewire - the installer probably doesn't know what to do with two hard drives02:05
DarwinSurvivorcodebrainz: not that I can see :(02:05

codebrainzmdg2, meaning, take your typical install on a SATA disk, but replace the SATA disk with a USB disk02:29
ImaLamererrr i mean alex8702:29
transom324anyone know how to get citrix to work in ubuntu?02:29
ShadowRandom832: I put what after gparted again? sorry02:29
ColMustrdI'm trying to troubleshoot a networking issue. I thought it was related to recent kernel upgrade but now it appears that the only reason I noticed it after the kernel upgrade is because that's the point at which I rebooted. The issue may be the result of accidentally removing needed packages. I get a "No DHCPOFFERS received" error. Can anyone help figure out what the issue is?02:29
alex87medined, we're primarily a php-mysql house, ruby is fine, preferably not java though02:29
mdg2codebrainz: like a casper-rw setup?02:29
alex87medined, something relatively simple, we use redmine for issues02:29
codebrainzmdg2, no, like a real proper install on a usb drive02:30
Random832Shadow: /dev/sdb02:30
ImaLameralex87, Sugar runs on LAMP I believe02:30
alex87ImaLamer, just investigating it now, looks powerful, but may be overkill02:30
mdg2codebrainz: so lil already made a bootable USB flash drive and she wants to install to the internal USB harddrive?02:30
mdg2ColMustrd: wired or wireless?02:31
ColMustrdmdg2, wired02:31
mdg2ColMustrd: what do you get with "ifconfig" typed in a terminal?02:31
codebrainzmdg2, no, she installed from the Ubuntu CD to a plugged in external USB drive instead of the fixed internal drive (at least what i gather)02:31
codebrainzmdg2, on purpose of course02:32
ShadowRandom832: Ok...loading on the last part now, which is resizing all the way...02:32
mdg2codebrainz: lol02:32
medinedalex87 - http://www.ajaxlines.com/ajax/stuff/article/top_ruby_cms.php02:32
Dr_Williscodebrainz:  that can work. You have to rember to put the grub bootloader in the proper place  under the 'advanced' button at the last dialog box. I recall.02:32
ColMustrdmdg2, in terms of what? Looks like all the things you usually get except without an ipv5 ip address associated with eth002:32
medinedalex87 - i have heard good things about radiant02:32
brickyis there a way to make my webcam work for skype?02:32
medinedand follow the ruby theme02:32
Random832Shadow: this'll take some time - go make coffee02:32
Random832or w/e02:32
alex87medined, that site seems to be down, but i'll have a look into radiant02:32
Random832[if i understand you correctly that you've done the stuff in gparted and it's now resizing]02:33
medinedalex87 - it was slow to pull up ... but i did get the page.02:33
codebrainzDr_Willis, yep, I've done it numerous times, but a user here was having issues with the kernel's root filesystem trying to mount UUID= one that was invalid, because UUIDs suck02:33
Random832actually growing it _should_ only take a few minutes... but it is 750GB so who knows02:33
mdg2ColMustrd: you should be able to reinstall networking stuff from an ubuntu CD02:33
alex87medined, hmm... mine fails instantly02:33
mdg2ColMustrd: in Synaptic, choose CD as the source02:33
ColMustrdmdg2, wouldnt that require knowing what "stuff" I need?02:34
mdg2codebrainz: so Lil does not want to unplug USB flash drive and try installing again??02:34
samchow great is that02:34
samcerp, mispaste02:34
samcor mis-keyboard02:34
medinedalex87 - yeah .. it's failing now. This is the google cache version - http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:JoeFAJi8OpYJ:www.ajaxlines.com/ajax/stuff/article/top_ruby_cms.php+ruby+cms&cd=3&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us02:34
mdg2ColMustrd: what stuff didn't you want regarding networking?02:34
mdg2ColMustrd: I was suggesting reinstalling network manager or whatever02:34
codebrainzmdg2, well, imo, ubuntu is just going to assign another invalid UUID and configure grub to use that, you need to edit /etc/default/grub and tell it not to use UUIDs to avoid the root of the problem02:35
alex87medined, ah, beautiful, thanks02:35
ColMustrdmdg2, what is network manager?02:35
medinedalex87 - i work with ruby a lot .. good stuff.02:35
codebrainzmdg2, rather than using UUID for the root filesystem, using LABEL is much more portable imo02:35
anathematicI had my ubuntu server randomly restarted nad now I'm getting some error about grub + Error 2502:35
alex87medined, i haven't done much myself, but redmine has sold me on its abilities02:35
mdg2ColMustrd: its Ubuntu's app for handling internet/network connections via wired, wireless, broadband connection02:35
anathematicI've loaded up ubuntu on a disk and I have terminal open, I guess I need the mount the disk and redo the master boot config but I'm not where where to go from here02:36
mdg2codebrainz: I agree, but I think it may be too avanced for Lil at this point02:36
ShadowShadow832: 1. what if I prefer tea? Two...it is on the run simulation part, which seems to be last...02:36
codebrainzmdg2, i wholeheartedly agree with you on that02:36
codebrainzmdg2, but i always still try :)02:36
mdg2codebrainz: I see it as a "wipe the slate clean" situation02:37
Dr_Willis!grub2 | anathematic02:37
ubottuanathematic: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Karmic. For more information and troubleshooting on GRUB2 please refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub202:37
alketCan anyone help me how to install OpenArena 0.8.5 patch ? http://openarena.ws/download.php?view.302:37
codebrainzmdg2, my concern is that the issue is going to keep happening because ubuntu uses the UUID naming stuff02:37
mdg2codebrainz: had Lil run ubuntu at all?02:38
anathematicthanks Dr_Willis02:38
ColMustrdmdg2, it looks like that app requires a slew of libraries, many of them gui related.  This is a headless server, I don't want all that stuff on here.02:38
=== dgtl|screen is now known as dgtlchlk
anathematicDr_Willis:  what if I'm not on that new version of Ubuntu? Use grub1?02:38
mdg2ColMustrd: how long have you been using this headless server?02:38
Dr_Willisanathematic:  grub1 is also documented at the wiki pages02:38
ubottugrub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before Karmic (9.10). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.02:39
ColMustrdmdg2, idk....a year and a half or so02:39
codebrainzmdg2, she's used linux afaik02:39
mooseburgerIs it possible to tell ubuntu 10.04 which drivers to install for my printer? It keeps going online to attempt to find them, and I have them right there in my Downloads folder.02:39
Dr_Willismooseburger:  what files do you have? are they .debs ?02:39
mooseburgerDr_Willis, yes, they're .debs02:39
mdg2ColMustrd: perhaps you can look in the log files for apt and see what it removed.  Even though network manager is a GUI app, you can still use CLI commands02:40
Dr_Willismooseburger:  then install them?  sudo dpkg -i foo.deb02:40
ShadowRandom238: It's done, should I just close it all now?02:40
Firefishebye all.02:40
ColMustrdmdg2, yeah, I was trying that and gave up, I couldn't find anything that sounded network related to me. I am assuming that aptitude would not remove a lib that is required by some networking component, is that a good assumption?02:41
mdg2ColMustrd: not sure...02:41
mdg2ColMustrd:  you were upgrading the kernal?02:42
ShadowRandom832: It's done, should I save details or just close it all?02:42
Random832Shadow: you ran it, right? the checkmark button?02:42
Random832yeah close it02:42
Random832the details probably won't be anything interesting, unless there were errors, and you'd have mentioned that02:42
ColMustrdColMustrd, I upgraded the kernel today and when I rebooted is when this happened. But I think it's not related. I think the only reason it happened then was because it's the first time I had rebooted since doing whatever I did to mess things up02:42
ShadowI didn't see any errors...02:42
Random832now make sure everything's unmounted, unplug the firewire, and run the installer again02:42
FinityHey guys, I'm having a problem in ubuntu 10.0402:43
mdg2ColMustrd: Try "/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart"02:43
FinityI'm trying to install a USB attached printer02:43
ImaLamerRhythmbox question: I can't use CTRL+Click on multiple non-connected sections,any other options?02:43
Finitybut all I can find is information on network printers02:43
mdg2Finity: what kind of printer?02:43
FinityHP Photosmart C424002:44
Finityapparently the hlpip or w/e driver supports this printer02:44
ColMustrdmdg2, I tried that. everything up to the dhcp attempt seems to work02:44
mdg2Finity: is it plugged in?02:44
Dr_WillisFinity:  you did install the hplip packages?02:44
mdg2ColMustrd: firewall?02:44
Dr_Willishplip - HP Linux Printing and Imaging System (HPLIP)02:44
h3Xit's back to dd where i can monitor progress02:45
ImaLamerColdFyre, are you sure you are getting DHCP requests?02:45
h3Xat least gparted gave me the right partition size02:45
Finitybut System->Administration->Printing only shows networking printer options :/02:45
ShadowRandom832: Should I just do the side by side again? Or should I specify partitions?02:45
aretrfre34Hi, which util translates binary to digits, I forgot, need for generate wep key from /dev/random02:45
codebrainzColMustrd, unless your dhcp server is misconfigured, maybe try reinstalling the dhcp packages (apt-get install --reinstall dhcp3-common dhcp3-client)02:45
FinityDr_Willis: yeah, according to apt I have the latest version02:45
mooseburgerDr_Willis, that didn't do it, it still tries to search for drivers02:45
mdg2Finity: if its plugged in and turned on, when you try to print do you get a printer icon?02:46
Random832Shadow: i think you can just do the side by side without trouble02:46
Dr_Willismooseburger:  You may want to check the forums and cups.org for your exact printer. there may be some pacakges in the repos you need to install02:46
Random832verify what it's doing before you commit02:46
ColMustrdmdg2, I take that back, there are two other suspicious lines in the output of that. "send_packet: Network is unreachable" and "send_packet: please consult README file regarding broadcast address". The occur before it goes to the dhcp step though, not sure why its trying to reach a network yet at that stage02:46
atealthamy ubuntu suddenyl doesn't show fonts nicely. chrome, terminal are showing types as bitmaps and gvim has much wider fonts now. how can I restore this? this system has dual languages setup02:46
Finitymdg2: it's not even in my list of printers as of yet02:46
SegFaultAXWhy isn't my interface upping on boot? If I sudo ifup -a it configs no problem. But why doesn't it auto up?02:46
FinityI have a few printers already, that are network printers from work02:46
Dr_WillisI always find cups works better if i use itsx web interface to configure my printers --> http://localhost:63102:46

ImaLamerRhythmbox question: I can't use CTRL+Click on multiple non-connected sections,any other options?02:47
codebrainzSegFaultAX, is it configure in /etc/network/interfaces?02:47

socommQuestion. Does anyone else have problems clicking the play button on youtube when you have composite on?02:47
RoastedVersion of Samba installed is 2:3.4.7. Okay, fine. What's the 2: of the 3.4.7 portion mean?02:48
ColMustrdmdg2, possibly. but nothing that would affect the ability to assign IP address. Every other device is able to get one. My laptop, my iphone, my Xbox 360, my pc02:48
codebrainzSegFaultAX, well, then the graphical ubuntu thing won't work with it, but it's not an issue if you don't care :)02:48
ShadowWould closing the chat help the resize and stuff run faster?02:48
ColMustrdmy home alarm02:48
socommQuestion. Does anyone else have problems clicking the play button on youtube when you have composite on?02:49
ImaLamerShadow, i think that's based on your disk02:49
SegFaultAXcodebrainz: I'm command line only. Also, this is for a router. The net side configs no problem. It's the internal static ip interface that doesn't want to play ball.02:49

dziikihow do i install a logitech webcam on ubuntu??02:49
codebrainzsocomm, do any buttons work, or just play buttons?02:49
codebrainzdziiki, it should "just work" when you plug it in02:49
ImaLamerShadow, may just be prepping02:49
SegFaultAXcodebrainz: Actually, it ups, but it doesn't config. It's listed in ifconfig but with no ip or anything.02:50
FinityIs there supposed to be a URI for my local printer?02:50

ImaLamerdziiki, sudo apt-get install cheese02:51
ColMustrdmdg2 bah. you know what? I'll just reinstall this weekend. no one uses the services that server provides during summer break anyway. I need an excuse for installing 10.04 LTS straight off the cd rather than upgrading from older releases. thanks anyway02:51
plouffeatealtha, messed up my firefox fonts. removed the add on and it was fine02:51
codebrainzSegFaultAX, interesting.  it's just a plain old hardwired nic?02:51
ImaLamerShadow, could be scanning and whatnot02:51
atealthaplouffe: my font issue is system wide though: chrome and terminal02:51

dziiki....installing cheese.02:52
codebrainzgbear14275, update-grub02:52
ShadowImaLamer: Maybe, I'm going to give it a few to do something while I am not on the computer...02:52
plouffeatealtha, ok I haven't had that02:52
ImaLamerdziiki, that would be the real test - and would install anyting else ubuntu needs to run it likely02:52

ImaLamerdziiki, then you should be good in most programs02:53
ImaLamerdziiki, though cario-dock may cause problems (if you dont' use that, ignore me:) )02:54
socommcodebrainz: all that just to watch youtube whilst using composite, lol, I'll just turn it off02:54
gbear14275codebrainz: Thanks!  Now I noticed when removing some of my older linux headers that a couple errors sprung up (looked like lvm issues) but when I just ran that command I got no errors.  Is there a log I could refer to, where those errors might have been captured?02:54
codebrainzsocomm, yeah, it's pretty annoying eh?  proprietary and open software don't mix well02:54
codebrainzgbear14275, it's pretty smart, it does auto-detection and whatnot, it probably didn't have errors02:55
Jordan_Usocomm: You can also browse youtube via Totem or html5.02:55
dziikiwell, i just installed zoneminder, but dont know how to open it02:55
lobitohelp with my graphic tablet please?02:56
codebrainzgbear14275, also, i'm not sure if/where it logs anything02:56
gbear14275codebrainz:  ok, so it was probably just an error with removing the running linux headers?02:56
socommJordan_U: yeah, I saw that. but this particular video is embeded on a website. no biggie02:56
ImaLamerdziiki, try ALT+F2 then type in zoneminder02:56
gbear14275Is there a synaptic install/remove log?  I know I can view the details but are those details captured in a log somewhere?02:56
ImaLamersocomm, are you in firefox?02:56
mdg2lobito: what kind of tablet is it?02:56
ShadowThe resizing partition is staying at 0%?02:57
codebrainzgbear14275, i'm not sure where the headers would come into this to be honest02:57
mdg2gbear14275: in Synaptics history .02:57
mdg2I forget which entry it is under02:57
socommImaLamer: yeah02:57
ImaLameroh, my turn to ask another question - how can i blacklist a package from being upgraded?02:57
dziikinope, but when I do zmc it asked for where my device is, so i do "zmc -d /dev/video0", and then nothing happens, nor error nothing02:57
lobitoit is genius gpen f509, it is recognized by my sistem (ubuntu 9.10), but the buttons of the pen doesnt work, I have to click with the mouse so I can draw X(02:57
ShadowImaLamer: Could it have frozen?02:57
codebrainzgbear14275, /var/log/apt i think02:57
ImaLamerShadow, is the light solid or flashing? because it *has* been a while02:58
mdg2lobito: oh, so you are using 9.10?02:58
xXEMO111Xxhey pplz!02:58
ShadowImaLamer: What light?02:58
lobitoyeah, 9.10, 10.04 didnt work well on my laptop02:58
ImaLamerdziiki, i'm not sure about that program02:58
ImaLamerShadow, your HD light on the PC02:58
codebrainzdziiki, i think zoneminder is web-based, so point your web browser at http://yourhostname:yourportnumber02:58
ShadowImaLamer: Uh...it looks solid ish...can't see that well, but more on the solid side02:59
codebrainzdziiki, something like http://localhost:8080 (not sure which port zoneminder uses)02:59
dziikik, thats what i was thinkin too....02:59
ImaLamerShadow, then likely just working still02:59

ImaLameroh - so you are installing03:00

ImaLameraretrfre34, just punch the KB or find a website to generate a password03:05
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, if you're displeased with the regular ubuntu, there are several options to still use ubuntu without using the regular (bloated) install03:05

ImaLamercodebrainz, agreed, with enough time you can come up with HURD03:08
codebrainzImaLamer, have you tried hurd?03:08
codebrainzbeen meaning to here03:08

xXEMO111Xxcodebrainz, but the main problems for me are not its bloatedness, but the fact they taken out all the awesome stuff and replaced it with a load of crap., i mean, 'Glibber'?!? wtf!, 'pitivi' is one of the worst video editors I have seen in ubuntu, they took away 'GIMP'!!!, why the hell did that happen!, they took away over 1/3 of the awesomeness, and replaced it with a load of trivial crap!!! :-(03:12

itai_michaelsoncan anyone help me with mounting smb shares? i cant get read-write permission when auto-mounting with fstab03:13
ubuntubiecodebrainz: yes I was in that processs, from 9.10 to 10.04, when the screen faded out and then the computer became unresponsive03:13
Stormx2aretrfre34, cat /dev/urandom | strings | tr -d '\n' | head -c 6303:13
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, so remove glibber and pitivi and replace with GIMP and avidemux?03:13
ubuntubiecodebrainz: then I pushed the power button once, and I saw an error reported on-screen in a message-box, and then the comp completely froze, after which I hard-powered-down03:13
aretrfre34Stormx2:Damn it, what i was looking for, exactly!03:14
codebrainzubuntubie, yeesh, easiest/best route would prolly be to back up your home dir and re-install from scratch, but there might be a way to continue the upgrade that I'm not aware of03:14
ubuntubiecodebrainz: so basically, after that, I was able to boot up but it would only go into the command prompt, not the gui.  So I figured I could \either try to fix the gui problem, which I think may be related to gfx drivers, or try some sort of repair upgrade install using a live cd03:15
zamaraxhello, I have ntfs-3g installed and  can't mount my NTFS partitions on boot and they are readable however they are not writable, here is what I have in fstab, am I doing something wrong? /dev/sda2       /Windows    ntfs    umask=0222      0       003:15
=== eddie is now known as Guest1184
Stormx2aretrfre34: No prob bro. :)03:15
zamaraxsorry, I meant I CAN mount my ntfs partitions03:16
codebrainzubuntubie, so you have a proper shell?03:16
fbxxkl_Hi everyone.  I am trying to figure out why after installing my copy of Ubuntu it didn't load the drivers for my wireless card. I have used it with Ubuntu before.  How can I install the drivers manually or initialize it?03:16
ubuntubiecodebrainz: yes, apparently, right now I'm running off of a live-cd so I can use gui-irc03:16
ubuntubiecodebrainz: yes, I have a proper shell when I'm booting off of the hd I think03:17
codebrainzubuntubie, you could try booting back from your install and running 'sudo do-release-upgrade' and see if it will resume from where it left off03:17
Stormx2zamarax, this can sometimes be caused by you shutting down windows improperl03:17
xXEMO111Xxcodebrainz, 1. 'avidemux' fail on ubuntu, it never works properly on ubuntu, it actually hindred the operating system a few ties causing it to crash. 2. 'GIMP', are you crazy!, I don't have the internet to download and installl that!, do you know how big the file is!?, and how many .deb packages it takes, I pay £15 per 3000mb of my crappy internet connection!, I'm poor dude!.03:17
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends gimp03:18
ubuntubiecodebrainz: okay, i'll try that command, hopefully the gfx problem will be taken care of during that process as well, thanks,03:18
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, otherwise, install from a CD03:18
zamaraxStorm2 being that the volume is flagged as dirty?03:18
suicidepillsdoes anyone know where I can download the gspca module?  i'm trying to get my netbook camera to work03:18
leonardoshow me to the xubuntu room plz03:18
ridinleonardo, the xubuntu room is in #xubuntu03:19
codebrainzubuntubie, if you don't like the choices conanical makes, you are absolutely free to use any other distro such as debian, but I'd recommend doing a custom install of ubuntu and tweaking it to your desires03:19
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, it's even simple enough to "remix" you own ubuntu distro/CD so that when you install you get stuff the way you want instead of the way someone else assumes you want it03:21
ubuntubiecodebrainz: i don't even have the ability to form an opinion on the later canonical releases, since I have yet to use anything past 7.10, that's where I started this long upgrade train today.  It got to 9.10, and then all this happened.03:21
codebrainzubuntubie, i wasn't impressed, but defaults are just that :)03:21
Stormx2zamarax: Yes.03:22
xXEMO111Xx9.10 is an abomination!, it's almost like the comunity didn't give half a crap about how it was going to turn out!, it's like a file with most of the text taken out of it.03:22
suboneEverytime I start a video, no matter what application I use to play it, the screen goes black for a moment before it plays. Also, when I play a dvd the screen goes blank for a moment every time the chapter changes. Any help?03:22
Stormx2zamarax: Easiest way to fix it is to boot into windows and shut down. I've read that you sometimes need to do this twice03:22
zamaraxI see, ok I'll brb then03:22
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, people are gonna complain if you outright trash it like that here.  basically what the community wants and what the company pays for are two different things sometimes (not that often actually)03:23

codebrainzcannonfodder, more importantly what test34 said :)03:28
xXEMO111Xxcodebrainz, what are you talking about?, I love ubuntu, I use no other., but 9.10 makes me wanna cry and piss blood., it kinda works, but like I said, they murderd it by taking the good and awesome stuff out, and just throwing anything in., it's not even nearly as bad as microsucks winblows, but it hasn't turned into a proud strong operating system like everyone expects when they are a part of the community, like me.03:28
cdoublejj_i'm dual booting how do i make it see the windows partition?03:29
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, it boils down to a matter of opinion, mine is often not in line with what the mainstream thinks03:29

xXEMO111Xxwhat do I do, just use 9.10 untill 11.04 comes out!?!03:30
ImaLamerxXEMO111Xx, gimp in in 10.04..03:30
Stormx2xXEMO111Xx: What's wrong with 9.10?03:30
Textmodeare there any reports of people having issues upgrading from karmic to lucid?03:30
xXEMO111Xxeven then, will 11.04 rectify itself?03:30
codebrainzxXEMO111Xx, you have the choice to type sudo apt-get install gimp (or install from a local cd/repo)03:30
ImaLamerxXEMO111Xx, volunteer and get 11 out the door with what you want :)03:31
cdoublejj_just cdrom and floppy then 2 copies with a zero at the end03:31
Stormx2Are you just whining that The GIMP was taken off the CD?03:31
xXEMO111Xxit just makes me so depressed, angry and disappointed.03:31

fuzzybunny69yhey guys i just bought a ByteCC USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Adapter and I can hear that it has spinned up the hardrive but I am not sure how to mount it or what to do now? Does anyone have any experience doing this?03:35
itai_michaelsoncodebrainz, i try the ls /etc/passwd command but there is no output for anything, evcen for groups that i know exist when i look in system>admin>user/groups03:35
cannonfodderi can read your mind03:35
codebrainzitai_michaelson, it will only show the users from that group id, if there aren't users in that group, it won't show anything03:36
codebrainzcannonfodder, heh03:36
Stormx2fuzzybunny69y, sure it's not auto-mounted? Check your places menu03:36
codebrainzfuzzybunny69y, it should be under the "Places" menu, no?03:37
LinOObis there a linux program that would automatically replicated data from one drive to another?  Like a raid drive mirror?  It would not have to be realtime - even every 24 hours duplicate all changes from drive a to drive b03:37
cannonfoddercodebrainz   "ssh -p 3454 noob123@"   btw this is fake info..but this the syntax im using...after i type that and hit enter nothing happens  it doesnt show anythign happening03:37
codebrainzLinOOb, rsync03:37
LinOObok let me look that up03:38
edbianLinOOb, dd03:38
cannonfodderjust a connection timeout03:38
cannonfodderit worked the very first time when u told me the syntax   and then after that its liek the server crashed or something03:38
cannonfodderi really dont know whats going on03:38
codebrainzcannonfodder, not sure, if it asked for the password before, i dunno, unless it's "offline"03:38
LinOObdd and rsync ok - how about a Dell Optiplex 320 1.6 Celeron 1 gig ram - I want to use it as a file server/backup - is Ubuntu too heavy?03:38
fbxxkl_I have a wireless PCI card installed and it is showing up after lspci -k with drivers installed but I don't see it as a viable network device to use? anyone have any ideas?03:38
TextmodeLinOOb: rsync is a reliable copy/syncronising program, dd is a direct device reader/writer03:38

codebrainzcannonfodder, google for 'ssh known_hosts' and such, you might need to clear some junk out (not ssh expert)03:39
suicidepillsdoes anyone know where I can download the gspca module?  i'm trying to get my netbook camera to work03:39
codebrainzLinOOb, use ubuntu server edition, that machine will be perfect03:40
TextmodeLinOOb: either of them will do what you want, strictly, if you use them as a cron task (cron is a task scheduling service, installed by default)03:40
LinOObIs Ubuntu Server GUI or text mode by default?03:40
TextmodeLinOOb: but you probably want rsync03:40
codebrainzLinOOb, rsync will be fast, dd will be "legally" sound lets say :)03:41

codebrainzLinOOb, for a server, maybe webmin, or I'm sure someone else here can suggest something far better03:42
FrijolieI've got an external HDD that is having mounting problems (it has three mount points 'drive', 'drive_' and 'drive__'). why does Ubuntu keep appending an underscore after the drive label?03:42
codebrainzFrijolie, it checks to see if one is used, if it is, it adds an underscore and tries again :)03:43
edbianFrijolie, When ubuntu automounts a drive it creates a folder in /media and mounts the drive is said folder.  If it has an error and the drive isn't properly unmounted the folder is left there.  When a new folder is created in the same place it must have a new name.  Hence the _03:43
Frijoliecodebrainz, they are all the same drive03:43
codebrainzFrijolie, probably weren't cleanly unmounted03:44
edbianFrijolie, It03:44
edbianFrijolie, It's the folder that has a new name, not the drive.03:44
codebrainzitai_michaelson, ask the whole channel, i will try though03:44
LinOObRSYNC: If I just going to dup from drive to drive on the same machine (at first) do I still need Rync03:44
Frijoliehow do you correct this?03:44
edbianLinOOb, rsync can do remote connections but it does local copies as well.03:45
Frijoliei have applications which "map" to the drive location and it's annoying having to constantly update the pointers to the new location (drive_ +)03:45
codebrainzLinOOb, rsync (behind the scenes) is AMAZING, yes, it's best :)03:45
edbianLinOOb, I use rsync all the time to sync my music player :) (non-ipod)03:45
fuzzybunny69yStormx2, no it isnt under places03:45
itai_michaelsonwhenever i mount smb share with places>network i get read/write permission , but if i automount it with fstab i get read-only, strangley this only apply to one share, all the other shares mount ok with fstab03:45
edbianFrijolie, The real question is "why is the drive being unmounted incorrectly"  You could also create a manual mount point in /etc/fstab.  The folder will never change03:45
codebrainzFrijolie, what kinda of drive again?03:45
LinOObOK so for a newbie to get up and running quickly - OS and Rsync creating a file server - whats the "right" distro to load?03:46
fuzzybunny69ycodebrainz, , no it isnt under places03:46
=== Zeike is now known as brandonj
Frijolieit's an external usb hard drive03:46
FrijolieI don't know how it's being "unmounted incorrectly". Well...the computer does go into hibernation after 2 hours but I"ve never ejected or unmounted it manually. Just leave it powered on and connected03:47
suicidepillsi'm having trouble with my webcam on my netbook.  it doesn't seem to be detected by ubuntu03:47
edbianFrijolie, That hibernation is almost definitely the problem ;)03:47
Frijoliewhen I resume from hibernation it's still mounted but sometimes I'll get errors saying that it can't find the path (so to speak) and will then notice that the mount point has changed by another underscore03:47
codebrainzFrijolie, try running the command 'mount' and see if the other mount points are listed  there03:48
edbianFrijolie, It's being unmounted when the computer goes to hibernation but the folder isn't being removed.  Then it remounts and has to create a new folder.03:48
Frijolie/dev/sdb1 on /media/WD_320GB__ type ext3 (rw,nosuid,nodev,uhelper=udisks)03:48
Frijoliethat's the only think listed concerning this drive03:49
codebrainzFrijolie, i'm with edbian add it to /etc/fstab, worst case scenario all you need to do is mount -a03:49
edbianLinOOb, What's the right distro?  Pretty much ever distro has Rsync and server software...03:49
Frijolieedbian, that makes sense03:49
cdoublejj_http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/mountwindows is for nfts drives my win os is win98se03:49
edbianFrijolie, You know how to edit /etc/fstab?03:49
Frijolieedbian, sorta...is it safe to unmount, power down, and manually delete the entries in /media and then power it back on and hope for the best?03:50
codebrainzedbian, have you ever heard of a fstab gui, and if not, any ideas why (it's trivial to write)?03:50
edbianFrijolie, Yep.  If you don't have anything mounted in a folder in /media right at that moment you can delete it.03:51
codebrainzFrijolie, run sudo umount /dev/sdX* and then it should be safe to delete those dirs03:51
LinOObok - Ubuntu Server coming in now and will use Rsync: thank you.03:51
edbiancodebrainz, I've never heard of a project to make a gui for it.  I agree it is trivial to write.  Maybe that's the reason it hasn't been written?  It's not "fun" enough03:51

edbianFrijolie, Are you suggesting that is what the script should do or that is what the Ubuntu developers should have the system do?04:00
LinOObXray:  Windows 7 working on drive-pull out drive - put in new drive - boot to live cd - try to install - install fails - remove new drive - put in windows 7 drive again - now win 7 wont boot - error about grub rescue - how in the world is that possible04:00
xray_tskLinOOb: not to "heck" XD04:00
Frijolieedbian, i was suggesting the kernel devs implement for me personally04:01
edbianLinOOb, The raid card has the bootloader and not the hdd04:01
greezmunkeyistevenmon: check this: http://siag.nu/pen/vrrpd-linux.shtml04:01
xray_tskLinOOb: okay, you really did GRUB installation.04:01
WassimHey everyone. Complete newbie here. Apologies if this is completely ignorant, but I want to install software on my Ubuntu machine. I do not have internet on that machine, so I downloaded it from another computer and transferred it with a USB key. The file is a tar.gz and I have no idea how to install it. Can anyone help?04:01
edbianFrijolie, ha ha ha.  That would be great wouldn't it? :)04:01
LinOObedbian - I think you got it - I did recently enable raid04:01
xray_tskLinOOb: if the question is to boot win7, you should use fixboot and fixmbr04:01
istevenmongreezmunkey: thanks04:01
xray_tskLinOOb: and check bootable flag.04:02
edbianFrijolie, They're working on it I'm sure.  Lots of people know that hibernation doesn't work right.  It's a well known problem.  The reason it sticks around is that it doesn't work in a different way for each person.  For me everything worked fine except that I couldn't get out of hibernation!04:02
LinOObI did fix win 7 my question is why is Grub loading to my raid I guess?  By the way my raid drives are disconnected04:02
xray_tskLinOOb: it should be set to the win7's service partition (usually ~100 mb)04:02
codebrainzWassim, much easier if you can find .deb files for ubuntu/debian rather than the source code04:02
xray_tskLinOOb: you grub was installed when you tried installation, that failed.04:02
greezmunkeyistevenmon: good luck with that, but I hope you don't think you will end up with twice the bandwidth, or anything like that.04:02
LinOObXray - IM lost - the Win 7 drive was never in the machine - it should have nothing to with linux04:02
LinOOblet me try and clarify -04:03
Frijolieedbian, yeah Ive heard bout many hibernation woes but I guess I've gotten off pretty easy if this was the only thing I've noticed. *buntu has come a long way since I've started so I don't have much to complain about.04:03
LinOObwhen i put in the new drive - the machine wont even get far past post - I assumed it had something to with raid being enabled- drives setup and then drive removed without turing of raid04:03
istevenmongreezmunkey: no no, i understand the theory behind it04:03
LinOObwell - lets drop it for now - I am moving all data off raid - and removing all drives and disabling raid04:04
WassimCodebrainz: Interesting. Let me try to find ndiswrapper.04:04
LinOOband trying again04:04
edbianFrijolie, The real power of linux is that you have the tools to fix the problem yourself.  Like I said, there is almost definitely a script to solve that problem :)04:04
TextmodeWassim: tar.gz is litterally a Gziped, tar-archive. aka a "tarball". its just an archive, and usually contains sourcecode, or loose files.04:04
LinOObedbian - your saying grub somehow loads to raid in memory?  the raid drives were disconnected during the attempted live cd install04:04
greezmunkeyistevenmon: cool, you may also check out xincom, they make purpose built internet failover equipment that is rather cheap, but effective.04:04
codebrainzFrijolie, edbian presumably something is going wrong/not normal, because it does work for most people i think04:04
sizzlefireIs there any way to force ubuntu to start in low graphics mode by default? right now it just starts to a black screen and refuses to load further04:05
Frijoliecodebrainz, edbian Truth be told I have only started noticing this since the upgrade to 10.0404:05
Frijoliecodebrainz, edbian didn't they drop HAL in Lucid for something else?04:05
Jordan_ULinOOb: Can you connect all of the various drives and run this script http://sourceforge.net/projects/bootinfoscript/ ? That should clear upt exactly what is where.04:06
istevenmongreezmunkey: i want to try to set all this up with a linux server. just want to make a proof of concept, not a production service04:06
edbianLinOOb, You have a card that handles all the harddrives and is the raid.  That has the bootloader on it.  That is what grub is installed on.04:06
greezmunkeyistevenmon: prove away! :)04:06
edbianFrijolie, They did drop HAL.  I have no idea what they use now.  That may be the source of the problem04:07
LinOObOk understood - now what?  Do I need to do anything to clear that?  I did a bootrec.exe fixmbr from the repair prompt to get Windows 7 boothed again04:07
un214anybody know one good reason why I should not junk upstart?04:07
istevenmongreezmunkey: something i need help with is how to measure response times, when failure comes04:08
codebrainzun214, any good reason(s) to junk it?04:08
un214fastest way to get rid of plymouth & mountall04:08
un214[I have plenty good reasons to dump those two]04:09
codebrainzun214, what's the prob?  concurrent fsck's on same disk or something?04:10

Cmdrbubblesanyone willing to help a xubuntu noob with a wine install?04:12

un214it's automouted by bootscripts04:12
jbAUi read that it's supposed to be half of what the ram is04:12
un214tmpfs appears to be always full04:13
xanguaCmdrbubbles: sudo apt-get install wine04:13
greezmunkeyistevenmon: ok, If I may ask, why is the failover time (or length thereof) important, as long as the failover occurs?04:13
Random832jbAU: are you actually getting write errors, or just it's telling you in df there's no space04:13
Cmdrbubblesive installed the wine program04:13
codebrainzun214, plymouth isn't tied to upstart though right? can't you ditch it and keep upstart?04:13
jbAUsamba is complaining unable to write to /var/run04:13
un214codebrainz yeah that's right but the bootscripts still go04:13

sizzlefireIn ubuntu if I boot my monitor shows as Unknown, how would I go about fixing that?04:14
Random832my /var/run has 220kb of stuff on it04:14
Random832so, the real question is04:14
Random832what on earth is taking up so much space?04:14
greezmunkeyistevenmon: any active tcp/udp connections are going to fail when the failover completes because the public IP is going to change, i.e the source address that is.04:14
codebrainzun214, i've found upstart to be pretty seamless, from a couple basic installs, but it seems mostly backwards compatible, so I've not had to change myself at all04:14
jbAUsamba messages database04:14
Random832that's how big?04:15
un214codebrainz: it's backwards compatabile until you try to think about what /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit used to do04:15
istevenmongreezmunkey: there is no way to prevent this active connection to fail?04:15
Random832stop samba, delete the file, and restart samba04:16
brickyanybody compiled a broadcom wifi device driver on here?04:16
Random832what gets stored in messages.tdb?04:16

jbAUsamba messages apparently - it looks like a bug04:17
Random832du /var/run/..whatever../messages.tdb04:17
jbAUshouldn't be that large normally04:17
Random832ls won't tell you how much space it's taking04:17
greezmunkeyistevenmon: I don't see that there could be one, think of it from the point of view of an extablished connection inside your lan to an Internet website...The website is busy sending responses to your current public IP, then wham, your system changes the public IP ( the source address) what are the existing connections to do other than fail?04:18
jbAUyer it's def 1.2gig04:18
jbAUi'll have to shut it down04:18
Random832[it's a database, i don't trust databases not to be sparse files]04:18

sili_I'm compiling a kernel with make-kpkg --initrd, but when I install the resulting .debs, the initrd is not installed or found in /boot. Any ideas04:19
greezmunkeyistevenmon: if you were to work out a MLPPP connection over two links to your isp, the bonded connection shares the same public (virtual) IP, hense a failure of either one would go undetected, a slowdown would be percievable, but it would keep working.04:19
istevenmongreezmunkey: hehehe i know, somehow i didnt think about it till now ^^, anyway i need to compare both protocols VRRP and CARP for system requirements, downtime, network flow, bonding04:20
greezmunkeyistevenmon: neither one will work for bonding the way I understand it, I could be wrong.04:20

mankashI have installed wifi card, it is not working04:22
istevenmongreezmunkey: but i mean bonding for users in the network, one user goes out for a specific connection to one IP and other to the other pucblic IP?04:23
codebrainzsili_, tried mkinitramfs or update-iniramfs?04:23
switch10_damian_-_: pitivi, openshot, and kino will do that.04:23
damian_-_ahh thank you04:23
sili_codebrainz: no, I'm a noob04:24

johnurgent help needed to configure my broadband modem(wireless) in ubuntu 10.0404:24
codebrainzsili_, then why are you recompiling the kernel?   :)04:24
sili_codebrainz: cause the brightness button on my laptop won't work04:24
johnwindows XP is detecting my network, but ubuntu doesnt:-(04:24
codebrainzsili_, are you sure it's not just a couple acpi script you need?04:25
istevenmongreezmunkey: i thought these two protocols create a virtual ip address just like channel bonding MLPPP04:25
greezmunkeyistevenmon: you may be able to create a load sharing configuration though, that would work as you describe -04:25
sili_codebrainz: pretty sure.04:25
codebrainzsili_, what kind of laptop?04:25
sili_x201. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/acpi/+bug/58463504:26
sili_I'm trying to apply the patch there04:26
greezmunkeyistevenmon: that would have to be arranged between you and your isp - most isp's will sell that service to you. Between you and two desparate isps is a non starter, don't waste your time.04:26
istevenmongreezmunkey: yeah04:27
codebrainzsili_, anyway, if you've already installed the new kernel, try 'update-initramfs'04:28
greezmunkeyistevenmon: If you want high availablity, check with your isp about installing a bonded connection. It will use mlppp, and will do what you want to do, and you get the benefit of greater bandwidth.04:28

sili_I got an error about no /dev04:33
johnsir plz help with my modem04:33
codebrainzsili_, how did you go about compiling the kernel?04:33
jrgpJordan_U: the operating system can see the device, but the bios is too old to be able to boot from it. This is why I want to use the existing grub installation on the HD to boot to the flash drive, which has a debian install on it04:33
edbianjook, I'm leaving after this.  /etc/fstab lets you tell the system how to mount specific devices when they're connection.  Here is a great tutorial: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab04:33
sili_make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers --append-something=-custom04:33

sili_make-kpkg clean04:34
sili_fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers04:34
codebrainzsili_, did you use the vanilla kernel?  or recompile your existing kernel?  using your old configuration from ubnut?04:34
Jordan_Ujrgp: grub legacy won't allow you to do that, it can only read from drives that the BIOS can read from. GRUB2 has native USB drivers, though for the best USB support you'd want to use the latest bzr version of grub2.04:35

red2kicShadow: Tell the certain websites to adapt to HTML5 already. Other than that, try updating your Flash to latest. I updated my Firefox to latest and it did whine about flash though.05:05
tucemiuxjef91, [A][B][C] -- you can only resize C, you cannot delete space from A or B and create a new partition furthermore, if you already have 4 primary partitions that is it, you cant create more, you can have 3 primary partitions and 1 extended partition, in the extended partitions you can have as many partitions as you want05:05

ShadowOk, my connection is screwed up ish so IDK how long I will be connected05:15
greezmunkeyopij: I seriously doubt that you can run anything over the vpn that you don't first ask for, as in requesting a web page, ect. I would think that the admins of the proxy would purposefully deny any unsolicited traffic towards you.05:15
ShadowAnyway, I just installed ubuntu a couple hours ago from a live CD, and I selected "Side by side" with windows...05:15

ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.06:11
dpetrekmneptok: any free options?06:11
mneptokdpetrek: none i am aware of. but that does not mean they do not exist.06:12

sianhuloi must be superuser to open programs,because it say that i dont have space06:15
panzerhow would I do that?06:15
steve__sianhulo, you need to completely back up all of your stuff and do a fresh install, your computer somehow, when installing ran out of it's space or something06:15
sianhuloi dont have space to make a backup06:16
Jordan_Upanzer: http://www.linux.com/archive/feed/5814206:16

abhi_navmneptok, what is maria project?06:27
mneptokabhi_nav: http://mariadb.org06:28
ActionParsnipCmdrbubbles: wine is a best effort so not all apps will run. You could try the wine repo to get a later build or try win1.206:28
ZelozelosCmdrbubbles, yah, those prob wont run even if u do get them 2 install, but check the wine site to see 1st, if so installation instructions may be there as well06:28
wildbatActionParsnip, but i ain't sure if a bug ~ should i log it anyway?06:28
Jordan_Usteve__: Yes, run "sudo bash ~/Downloads/boot_info_script055.sh"06:28

Vin73ActionParsnip: No, I am not able to boot into the installed system at all....I am not sure...nothing went wrong during installation...once I do a hard reboot after removing media, I get an empty screen06:30
ActionParsnipwildbat: it won't be against a pid, it'll be against the package (i'd log it against the kernel)06:30
wildbatActionParsnip, ok06:30
Cmdrbubblesive tried loading from vista HD and install disc....get the same error either way06:30

Traderhttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/Grub2 I try to do via this manual.06:32
ActionParsnipsianhulo: ok how do you connect? Wired or wireless?06:32
Trader•Now you need to edit the /etc/default/grub file to fit your system06:33
Trader$ nano /etc/default/grub06:33
Trader•When that is done you need to run update-grub to create the configuration file. If you have a separate /boot partition you need to mount it first!06:33
Trader$ update-grub06:33
Trader•To install GRUB 2 to the MBR, next you need to run grub-install /dev/sda06:33
Trader$ grub-install /dev/sda06:33

opijhi ActionParsnip06:35
DarkSectornfinch: what's the issue ? detail06:35

sianhulosteve__, how i can change uuid?06:37
CountDownHow do I get sound to come out of the headphone jack?06:37
steve__you adapt it to yourself06:37
DarkSectornfinch: ok, so have you created the shortcut ?06:37
ActionParsnipsianhulo: ok then you need to add the home partition in /etc/fstab and it will be mounted. You needed to add the partition to the setup when you reinstalled but marked it to NOT be formatted and it would be mounted for you appropriately06:37
steve__sianhulo, that is all i know tho06:37
steve__Jordan_U, i used xp about a week ago with the same grub, and it worked great, but i think freebsd booloader screwed it up somehow06:38
steve__or grub has the wrong command to open it06:38
Jordan_Usteve__: Just as a test, what happens when you try the entry "Windows NT/2000/XP (on /dev/sda1)"?06:38
ActionParsnipOpij: you can use iptables to only accept incoming connections on the vpn device and drop all others. I'm not conversant with iptables but it can be done06:39
steve__it boots the hp recovery partition06:39
sianhuloActionParsnip,  i only had formated "/" partition,but not /home partition06:39
steve__can't run commands thru it06:39
Jordan_Usteve__: But that successfully boots currently?06:39
steve__yes and no06:39
opijActionParsnip: do you have any tips for very easy guides on that subject?06:40
sianhulothe archives are there,but it's as if they were not06:40
ActionParsnipsianhulo: yes that is what you needed to do but you also needed to change the home partition, mark it as the filesystem it previously used and mark it to be used as /home but not formatted06:40
nfinchDarkSector:I haven't no - it wasn't part of the guide. How do I do that?06:40
ActionParsnip!iptable | opij06:40
DarkSectornfinch: wait06:40
ActionParsnip!iptables | opij06:40
ubottuopij: Ubuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.06:40
ActionParsnipopij: that's all I know with iptables06:40
steve__i took it's free space away for my linux partitions, and now it can't really install too good06:40
sianhuloactionpasnip i did that06:40
ActionParsnipsianhulo: if you did it would be mounted now as it was before the reinstall06:41
DarkSectornfinch, ln -s /etc/phpmyadmin /var/www06:41
Jordan_Usteve__: But if it boots at all you may be able to modify its boot.ini to boot your real XP install.06:41
sianhulobut that's not happened like06:41
steve__sianhulo, put in the first few letters of someone's name on here and press tab, it usually fills it in06:41
steve__Jordan_U, it is only a wizard06:42
ActionParsnipsianhulo: you now need to manually edit /etc/fstab to add a line for /home. If someone has a seperate home partition the could give you the line. You will need to run: sudo blkid ,yours will be the only difference to that line06:42
steve__Jordan_U, a graphical one at that06:42
ActionParsnipsianhulo: if I was home I could give you mine but I'm on my phone outta town so no can do06:43
ActionParsnipsianhulo: I'm sure someone will give theirs if you ask ;)06:43
sianhulosudo blkid said http://paste.ubuntu.com/457680/06:44

waseem_see i hv been using Win7 , & all was working fine.I did a full installation on ubuntu 10.04 on a new dell, now m left with no option to connect to internet, bcoz ubuntu is not recognizing my wired as well as wireless. And my conn is set to Auto DHCP mode07:08
brand0ntry restarting your router07:08
brand0nthen restarting ubuntu07:08
rethussianhulo:i don't understand your problem07:09
ActionParsnipwaseem_: use: sudo lshw -C network ,websearch for the product lines for guides. What Win7 does or doesn't do is of no value to you07:09
hermanmsg Jordan_U what are expressions with curly braces '{' called?07:09
sianhuloi reinstalled ubuntu.but when i acces to my account it doesnt acces to my /home partition07:09
waseem_I did that also , it shows UNCLAIMED status07:10
ActionParsnipwaseem_: if you get a broadcom 43xx then use this guide:07:10
waseem_what shud i do>07:10
sianhuloande say that i dont have free space in disk07:10
steve__Jordan_U, now i understand your previous comments and i will try it out07:10
ActionParsnipwaseem_: run the command I just gave you and search for the product line for guides07:10
ActionParsnipwaseem_: is it a broadcom 43xx ?07:11
waseem_let me see07:11
sianhulobut i have, and i cant acces to my archives07:11

waseem_now what?07:12
ActionParsnipwaseem_: don't confusse it with the wired which may be broadcom. The chip series is important07:12
steve__Jordan_U, i will now try it out07:12
Jordan_Uherman: Brace expansion. Another illustrative example would be: echo {"Hello ","Goobye "}world.07:12
sianhulo/dev/sda6 on /home type ext4 (rw)07:12
ActionParsnipwaseem_: use the link above to set it up. You will need the install cd07:13
