sebsebsebpondera: meaning what exactly?00:06
bawnpondera, it sounds like you need to have a higher resolution00:07
darolujohndee: well the catch is Lucid doesn't use HAL anymore, anyways, press ALT+F2 and type (without quotation marks) "gconf-editor" there navigate to apps-nautilus-preferences and sdisable the "media automount" option00:07

BraddersKdarolu: ok then, reboot... here goes nothing!00:09
johndeedarolu: I thought so too, but for some reason it is here and running. I just tried killing it, but automount still works. Hence, something else is monitoring devices. In mtab every mounted device has uhelper=udisks mount option to it. Looks like udisks is the one that does it. Not much info on it tho :\00:10

Jordan_UFoolsRun: Hold shift during boot to get the grub menu.00:19

johndeeMaRk-I: Okay. Funny thing is there are tons of forum post about how lucid won't automount and not a single working solution on how to disable it. I disable it in gconf, in nautilus's prefs, added hald rule (which is not used anyway)00:20

karmapolisHello. I have my Lucid set with a US-International keyboard layout. It works fine everywhere except virt-manager. So when I use it with a kvm virtual machine, my dead keys are *really* dead: they're ignored completely as if they had not been pressed. This kvm virtuam machine is known to work with dead keys in another host, so the issue is either Ubuntu's kvm or Ubuntu's virt-manager. Can anybody help me?00:39
mgolischShifftyOneJr: how did you configure yur screens? you cant move them between screens if its seperate x displays00:39
slidinghornShifftyOneJr, As far as I'm aware, that's a compiz cube effect...without that enabled, you have to do it by right clicking and selecting "move to workspace"00:39

judgenjimmieskips, this is probably my last post for today, but do an lspci in an terminal an look for the wireless chip. People are more helpful in matters that they peronally have experienced.01:38
judgenif they know the chip, they are better to fix problems.01:38
judgenlike in my instance i have a lot of of experience with ralink chips01:38
MaRk-Ijimmieskips: if it's a usb device type lsusb01:38
judgenjimmieskips, and if it is an 27*xx or a 28*xx chip from ralink you must blacklist the other driver to get it to work.01:38

mgrandii know whats in my own home folder01:58
mgrandiim just curious on why .encryptfs is the exact same size as my home folder and has the exact amount of files as my home folder01:58
mgrandiit looks like it has an encrypted version of each file and its doing some sort of weird voodoo magic to make it appear not encrpyted?01:59

mgrandired2kic, if you look at the man pages there are some commands in there for mirroring. HOWEVER its really a bad thing to do because you are essentially ddosing the website02:05
mgrandired2kic, if you look at it, there is usually a wait time, set it to 2 seconds or else you might have the server IP ban you for a while for downloading their enitre site02:05

Dr_Willisupgrdman:  you could ln -s the location to your users home dir some where also.02:31

Agu10when I try to go back to ubuntu, after having suspended, the laptop just turns itself off02:46
DarkStar1Agu10: It's always there. I've found that because of the proximity of your name next to the icon some people tend to think the shutdown menu isn't working right :)02:47

matthew_I know there is documentation but I don't know exactly what to search for...I dual boot 10.04 and win7 and I'd like to access files on my Ubuntu partition from within Windows...can someone point me in the right direction?03:04
IdleOne!samba | matthew_03:04
ubottumatthew_: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.03:04
kliwonjimmieskips, : that's good idea... :D03:04
VladTheImpaledmatthew_, You'l need to setup a Samba server in Ubuntu for Win to access03:04
jimmieskipskliwon any suggestions?03:05
jon5001hoofer, this is what it says: http://paste.ubuntu.com/458110/03:05
matthew_VladTheImpaled...if I were to, say, play music from my Ubuntu partition in Windows, using Samba would there be risk of delay/lag?03:06
jimmieskipsbazhang did you happen to see the 2 pages i posted on this device03:07
VladTheImpaledmatthew_, the samba server is pretty stable.  however my experience with smb as a protocol in general isn't that hopeful03:07
bazhangjimmieskips, from the forums?03:07
VladTheImpaledmatthew_, I've had much better results with NFS, but getting a decent NFS client for Windows can be a challenge03:07
jimmieskipsbazhang yep03:07
bazhangjimmieskips, seems you need to compile for that03:07
matthew_ok, thanks VladTheImpaled, IdleOne for the information!03:07
aurillianceIf I type "diff .htaccess .htaccess_backup" and get absolutely nothing printed to the terminal (I get an empty prompt again) does that mean the files are identical?03:07
IdleOnematthew_: sure thing03:08
MaRk-IVladTheImpaled: I think his partition is in the same HD or machine, I dont think he needs samba... and I doubt win7 could read an ext3/4 partition?03:08
jimmieskipsbazhang i think i should probably scrap that device and get something else03:08
bazhangjimmieskips, atheros and intel are good choices then, even broadcom in a pinch03:08
VladTheImpaledMaRk-I, Yeh, I see what you mean.  IE, he won't have both partitions active at the same time03:08
kliwonjimmieskips, : dont have idea yet...03:08
aurillianceMaRk-I, win7 can read ext4/3, sometimes03:08
aurillianceMaRk-I, you have to install a driver though03:09
jimmieskipsbazhang will these be plug and play?03:09
MaRk-Iaurilliance: thanks, dont worry tho that person left03:09
VladTheImpaledmatthew_, so what you really need to do is to mount the Linux partition as a disk drive in Windows7, right?03:09
kliwonjimmieskips, : try these https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WirelessCardsSupported#Wireless%20USB%20Adapters03:09
aurillianceMaRk-I, sure03:09
bazhangjimmieskips, intel yet, the others have well supported drivers03:09
aurillianceIf I use diff on 2 files and get nothing printed to the terminal, does that mean they are identical?03:09

VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, are you trying to do an upgrade from 9.10 to 10.4?03:16
un214DocPlatypus: willing to try xforcevesa?03:16
DocPlatypusVladTheImpaled: yes03:16
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, its not really a recommended thing03:17
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, its typically better to do a fresh install03:17
un214oh come on03:17
DocPlatypusVladTheImpaled: that's exactly what I'm trying to avoid03:17
DocPlatypusand there's no point in having an upgrade procedure if it's useless03:17

ShpookIt's been a long time since I've used any linux distro. Now I'm trying to install the latest Ubuntu on a Gateway laptop. Trying both a live-cd and a wubi install, I get a blank screen after grub...no splash, no login, nothing. No response to any keystrokes. I've always had issues with Gateway display drivers, but I honestly don't know/remember where to start here. Any suggestions? Thanks.03:18
jimmieskipskliwon i was thinking asus usb-n13 from that link you sent me03:18
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, you can do that03:18
un214Shpook, try the alternate cd03:18
bazhangVladTheImpaled, upgrades are fine. fresh installs are merely another option03:18
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, Microsoft people also need to be done that03:18
VladTheImpaledbazhang, I'd love to have your faith, but it has worked about 15% of the time for me, and my installs are pretty basic03:19
DocPlatypusjust did a 'dpkg --configure -a' and that configured a bunch of stuff the upgrade didn't bother with03:19
kliwonjimmieskips, : maybe you can compare the 1 price 1st...03:19
bazhangVladTheImpaled, please dont say that upgrades are not recommended here03:19
Shpookun214, will do, I'll start the download now. I'm not in a big rush or anything, but it does get aggravating.03:19
VladTheImpaledbazhang, whatever03:19
un214Shpook, you may also have to try to boot rescue mode or xforcevesa03:19
VladTheImpaledbazhang, I'm just sharing experience.  Take a vote on it.  I think I'd win03:19
bazhangVladTheImpaled, no.03:20
mogra"this is not a democracy"03:20
un214[I have reason to believe the alternate cd will behave better if drivers are buggy]03:20
VladTheImpaledbazhang, nice comeback03:20
un214after a few botched upgrades I now recommend updating sources.list manually and running apt-get update followed by apt-get dist-upgrade03:21
Shpookun214: Awesome. I'll use google from here, I just wanted a shove in the right direction. Thanks a lot, if I have any issues from there, I'll just come back and ask. :D03:21
VladTheImpaledthe fact is that although Ubuntu might just upgrade fine, there's no guarantee that the drivers, 3rd party software, etc. will play fair.03:21
DocPlatypusVladTheImpaled: I have next to no third party software03:21
VladTheImpaledIts not a problem isolated to Ubuntu.  Windows has had this problem for 20 years03:21
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, well I'm no psychic as to your computer issues, but the fact is you are having problems03:22
DocPlatypusVladTheImpaled: part of the reason I dumped Windows. of course Windows by itself is almost useless03:22
VladTheImpaledDocPlatypus, true03:22
DocPlatypusyou have to buy a lot of third party software, Microsoft sells very little03:22

mdgDocPlatypus: thanks!  :003:27
VladTheImpaledStyles, what brand of laptop is it?03:27
DocPlatypususually on Ubuntu you can just plug it in and if it will work, it usually works right away03:28
dugger5688Yeah, I'm actually surprised now when hardware doesn't work right away /w Ubuntu.03:28
pictureadayHow does one enable verbose output during boot?03:29
dugger5688pictureaday: does ur computer boot to a terminal or graphical login?03:30
VladTheImpaleddugger5688, I think its a wise practice to first check with any vendor for Linux compatibility with any hardware.  Their primary focus is typically Windows.  I use a lot of screwball hardware devices on servers, etc. such as funky RAID cards, PCI boards, etc. and unless they use a common chipset, its hard to find Linux compatibility03:30
VladTheImpaleddugger5688, but if I stay with the common ones, they work perfectly well (typically better than on other OSs)03:30
dugger5688ugh, yes RAID cards ARE a pain.03:30
pictureaday@dugger, it doesnt get that far03:30
pictureadayI'm running server edition03:31
pictureadayit hangs on boot03:31
VladTheImpaleddugger5688, I just had to add a PCI eSata card to a server for external drive backups, and I had to go through about 5 cards before I found one compatible with Linux.03:31

ShpookI know this channel is more for help, but I'd like to know why Ubuntu STILL isn't at the level to just WORK out of the box.03:34
VladTheImpaledmgolisch, Anything that didn't use a common chipset (off memory, and I'm probably wrong, but I think the one that did work was a SIL chipset or something like that?)03:34

ejvdoglino: google putty03:35
DocPlatypusShpook: it's close enough to that for my purposes03:35
doglinoejv: no03:35
VladTheImpaledmgolisch, so the cards were not 'name brand' simply because the major manufacturers weren't selling PCI cards anymore03:35

FoolsRunForgive my asking the same question hours apart, but has anyone seen a situation where a fresh install of Ubuntu onto a RAID array (striped) will boot successfully every other time? On my first and third reboot I only got a blinking cursor, on my second and forth I got the desktop.03:48
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: software or hardware RAID?03:49
xanguaosmario: from synaptic, you search them and remove them03:50
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: It's server hardware so I believe it is hardware RAID. I don't have the machine in front of me and didn't check for sure before installing. The Ubuntu installer named a card when choosing the array to install onto.03:50
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: that does seem odd. it could be just coincidence that it's every other time03:51
osmariook. thanks. I'll try03:51
DocPlatypusI know Windows is terrible about leaving the hardware in some kind of weird state on a warm reboot03:51
DocPlatypusI would like to think most GNU/Linux distributions are better03:51
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: if it is coincidence, what might the problem be? Is there something that might cause intermitent booting?03:51
Vin73hi I had posed a query yesterday about an issue with reboot after installation of the latest Ubuntu03:51
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: I suppose I can't prove that it's warm/cold because when I get the blinking cursor, I have to shut it all the way down.03:52
Vin73the reboot hangs....and I was asked to do three checks...check the md5 sum...check the media...check the RAM03:52
Vin73I have done all the three checks successfully...but still the problem persists...can someone help?03:52
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: I've seen some posts suggesting creating a /boot partition at the top of the array. Worth a shot?03:52
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: yeah you have an issue where warm reboots don't work. your workaround for the moment is "don't do that"03:52
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: maybe. what's your partition structure right now?03:53
FoolsRunWhatever the Ubuntu default "use the whole disk" is. I didn't have time before the end of the day to review it. Too hung up on the boot issues.03:53
DocPlatypusoh my03:53
DocPlatypusummm... that may well be one big partition03:54
DocPlatypusI've never done it that way03:54
DocPlatypusI always make separate /usr /var and /home and usually /tmp03:54
FoolsRunCould that theoretically cause boot issues like this one?03:54
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: to be honest boot issues like that are the least of your possible worries when doing an install to one big filesystem03:55
mj8741Vin73: Hi, when you say it hangs - you mean the computer won't start?03:55
Vin73mj8741: yes....I cannot boot from the disk after installation...I get a string of I/O errors03:56
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: so the Ubuntu default isn't desirable, then. That seems unintuative for an installer.03:56

timFoolsRun: Partitioning allows you to have different file system formats on the same volume.04:00
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: if you have corruption on something like /usr you don't lose everything necessarily04:00
Vin73mj8741: Also, I wanted to mention another observation regarding the RAM test04:00
FoolsRunDocPlatypus: that makes sense, but it's unlikely to have cause my boot issue04:01
DocPlatypuswhereas with everything on one filesystem, the odds of losing it all go way up04:01
FoolsRunI've had a lot more problems with disk crashes than with file system corruption, though, and separate partitions won't save a bad disk04:01
DocPlatypusFoolsRun: it's more likely to be just a bug in the warm reboot process that the BIOS/boot code can't handle04:01

wookienzhi, i have moved a raid 0 array from windows to linux The buis can see the array and says it is healthy and functional, but i can gte ubuntu to see it. I have tried building a md0 array of the drives but when i mount it it says not a vsalid ntfs array. anyone familiar?04:16
[Rickmasta]Alright, that's all i needed.04:16
IdleOne[Rickmasta]: check the minimum requirements on ubuntu.com04:16
scott_ino[Rickmasta], well for ubuntu I'd suggest at least 750mhz which I have done... but still might not run that great04:16

FoolsRunPingJ: I believe so, but I'm not positive. Someone else might be able to answer that for sure.04:17

[Rickmasta]I might just save my money and go with a MBP.04:21
ponderaya i set up ubuntu netook addition on my friends and she doesnt what to go back to windows lol04:21
jnewbuntuwookienz, how did you move the array from win to linux? different box?04:21
timvalbaca: I'm running Karmic and it's amazingly smooth and all of the hardware works wonderfully.04:21
timpondera: I'm sorry. I'm confused. What were you asking?04:21
valbacathanks, I've been looking for one for the g/f and just happened to look at xchat when you mentioned the hp04:22
ponderatim you were talking about the ubuntu netbook edition right ?04:22
NeverCastSo I removed an Application from Ubuntu Software Center04:23
NeverCastbut it remains in the Applications menu04:23
NeverCastHow do I go about removing it?04:23
NeverCastUsing 9.1004:23
wookienzjnewbuntu: same box, same controller, new OS!!04:23
timvalbaca: Oh yes. I've got the HP Mini 110 and it's liquid smooth on regular Ubuntu. I didn't like Ubuntu Netbook's interface, but it works fine as well.04:23
timpondera: Nope. Wasn't asking. Are you having problems?04:24
jnewbuntuwookienz, you said the BIOS recognized it.  So it is SATA raid I assume04:24
valbacatim: thanks again04:24
wookienzjnewbuntu: yes.04:25
timNeverCast: This can happen sometimes. What you've got to do is logout and log back in and it will probably go away. Or, you can go into the terminal and do a "killall gnome-panel" and see if that takes care of it. If it doesn't, you're going to have to manually remove it by right clicking on "Applications" and going to "Edit Menu" and deleting the entry.04:25
jnewbuntuwookienz, Follow this on how to set up fakeraid: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto.  The recognition of raid is not automatic in ubuntu04:25
wookienzjnewbuntu: i can build a new array, but just cant mount it.04:25

NeverCastThanks tim, I tried the restart / log out options and that didn't work04:26
NeverCasttim, however I did find the entries in /usr/share/applications04:26
=== ExcruciationX is now known as oMg-iTz-eX
lunkstim: installing ekiga, but skype does not allow more than one contact at a time, I need to send my screen to more than one person04:26
NeverCasttim, Just need to use super user from the terminal to get rid of them.04:26
timNeverCast: Don't remove those.04:27
NeverCasttim, why not?04:27
lunkstim: I actually want to share my screen rather than my webcam... Skype was fine until I had to add one more person. :P04:27
NeverCasttim, they are just broken links04:27
NeverCasttim, are they not?04:27
timNeverCast: You might mess up a config file.04:27
scott_inolunks, is this specifically for screencasting/training04:27
timNeverCast: It's better to just remove the entry in the Applications menu.04:27
lunksscott_ino, yep04:27
NeverCastOkay I'll do that.04:27
NeverCasttim, Fixed it. Thanks (:04:28
scott_inobecause i would't use either for that... sadly the best tools for this aren't free04:28
wookienzjnewbuntu: yes. the raid array has data on it that icant afford to lose. so i need to get it back up and runnign without frucking it04:28
timlunks: Hmm... There are a few proprietary video conferencing programs, but of course those cost money and might just work in windows. Skype will eventually add multi person conferencing in linux.04:28
Alcohol52[pondera] I have could install in hard disk with 6 partition(3 ntfs, 1fat, 1 ext4 and swap)04:28
timNeverCast: Sure thing! Hope you don't have that problem.04:29
scott_inolunks, yuuguu I think can do it, not sure if it allows multiple people though04:29
rjbrunning ubuntu 10.04, firefox 3.6.6 in debug mode i get Gdk-WARNING **: XID collision04:29
NeverCasttim, Where would I ask about Java causing Ubuntu to completely freeze, mouse freezes and everything.04:29
timpondera: I think the trick is for windows is to install the os on the last partition. It really is pretty picky on install.04:29
scott_inolunks, depending on what your budget is, elluminate is an awesome java based tool I use frequently.04:29
timNeverCast: Which version of Java are you running?04:29
NeverCasttim, 1.6.20 I think.04:30
NeverCasttim, Believe it's the latest04:30
NeverCasttim, I'm unsure if it's OpenJDK or Sun04:30
lunksscott_ino, I'd rather want it free. :P04:30
scott_inolunks, http://www.yuuguu.com/home04:30
NeverCasttim, as I think I have both installed.04:30
timNeverCast: Is it OpenJDK or something else?04:30
wookienzjnewbuntu: i have tried mdadm --build /dev/md0 -n2 -l0 --chunk-64 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1, it creates successfully - i just cant then mount it. i have also tried chunk 128, sdb1 then sda1 all of which still same issue wheni try and mount.04:30
timNeverCast: Woops. Already answered my question.04:30
timNeverCast: When it crashes, which one are you using?04:30
jnewbuntuwookienz, As far as I understand, you need to use dmraid as per the post I gave before.  Do not use mdadm when you have fakeraid04:31
NeverCasttim, I'll check the startup log, one sec.04:31
timNeverCast: Okiedokie.04:31
NeverCasttim, Java version: 1.6.0_20 (Sun Microsystems Inc.) <http://java.sun.com/>04:31
jnewbuntuwookienz, even though ubuntu recognizes them as 2 devices, the BIOS says it is one and that is where the conflict arises.04:31
NeverCasttim, so Sun I believe04:32
timNeverCast: I would uninstall both and start over.04:32
NeverCasttim, Okay I'll give that a go.04:32
NeverCasttim, The application I'm trying to run is a Java game, using OpenGL04:32
=== sen_ is now known as sen_x
NeverCasttim, how do I go about updating Graphics drivers and OpenGL? as that is something I will probably have to try if this fails.04:33
wookienzjnewbuntu: dmraid -r shows "/dev/sdb: pdc, "pdc_fhdeecgf", stripe, ok, 486328064 sectors, data@ 0"04:33
lyhana8_hi, how can I find a network printer using the command line ?04:33
timNeverCast: If you've updated through the Update Manager, you're up to date.04:33
scott_inolunks, honestly skype or yuuguu are your only real free options unless you wanna do something more complicated04:33
NeverCasttim, okay sweet. Thanks.. Be back shortly, removing Java's04:33
jnewbuntuwookienz, right so /dev/sdb is a part of fakeraid.  Do not create software raid on it using mdadm04:34
timNeverCast: The program you're trying to run. Was that installed though the Software Center or something else?04:34
lunksscott_ino, I could complicate things a bit, if you have one crazy idea which could work. :)04:34
skornHow can I  mount a USB hard drive?04:34
jnewbuntuwookienz, In any case always back your data up.04:34
NeverCasttim, Java Web Start.04:34
NeverCasttim, http://wurmonline.com/04:35
skornIt doesn't appear under media.04:35
scott_inolunks, I'd give yuuguu a go first, haven't used it in quite some time, but i know it works, just not sure about multiple people04:35
NeverCastskorn, It should just appear on your desktop when you plug the device in.'04:35
tgalalI need to ssh-keygen for a user, without actually being logged in with that user.. Is it possible ? If logged in as root?04:35
timNeverCast: Then I don't know what the problem is. It may just be an issue with the game. Java Web Start, if installed through the Software Center, should work out of the box.04:35
wookienzjnewbuntu: quite correct....but presently I cant the raid up to back it up! originally i was just going to reinstall windows 7 again - but it could see the raid either. the drive was there - but just couldnt access it. so i moved to ubuntu  (finally!) thinking that it can do anything..04:36
NeverCasttim, the game works up to login and connect, when the 3D window pops up the whole system halts.04:36
timskorn: You can view mounted drives either on the desktop, or by going to Places>Computer04:36
skornI looked under /dev/disk and it says something about USB but it isnt mounting04:36
NeverCastskorn, should mount automatically04:36

dakotaI have had some problems with installation of ubuntu on my desktop...04:37

trismdakota: if you don't want grub to add other operating systems, you can sudo chmod -x /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober; sudo update-grub; and if you want them to be probed in the future you can make the script executable again and rerun update-grub04:40
wookienzjnewbuntu: yes sda and sdb are the raid 0 array. the chipset is sb710 which is fakeraid - just looking at it now to try and get more info... ill paste trhe output of fdisk as it talks about GPT partitions.04:40

This is needed if you have a voice enabled account or try to test on Singularity when voice is enabled there."04:46

timFalse_chicken: You can do some transfers in Ubuntu by going to the Terminal in Applications>Accessories>Terminal and typing "gksu nautilus"04:50
timNeverCast: good! What's next?04:50
arunkumar413hi,when i compile a c code it is replacing the previous compiled file.how to compile without affecting the already compiled files04:51
NeverCasttim, I'm going to install OpenJDK04:51
NeverCasttim, and run the game04:51
NeverCasttim, I'll let you know what happens04:51
DocPlatypusFalse_chicken: try 'gksudo nautilus'04:51
timNeverCast: Ok. Fingers crossed!04:51
False_chickenOh. thanks! Now after I backup how can I restore the files to the new user (Same name and password) and set the permissions?04:51
jnewbuntuwookienz, I take it that sdc is not a part of fakeraid.  Where did you install the GRUB of ubuntu?04:52
wookienzjnewbuntu: sdc04:52
sweetpiarunkumar413: maybe your looking for the -o outputfile option04:52
jnewbuntuSo with your BIOS set to sdc can you boot into ubuntu04:52
jnewbuntuwookienz, So with your BIOS set to sdc can you boot into ubuntu04:52
timFalse_chicken: Yes. What are you transferring them to? A USB hard drive or another drive with Ubuntu installed?04:52
False_chickenA usb drive. Then after new install I would like to restore the home folder04:53
DocPlatypusFalse_chicken: simplest way is to format the USB drive as ext4, second easiest is to make a tar.bz2 of your home dir04:53
th_hi all. I have dual screen system and I'd like 2 wallpapers. is this possible?04:53
wookienzjnewbuntu: "set to sdc" i have a 6 port SATA stack. First 4 ports have  2 x 250gb drives (the raid 0) ie 2 not used. Port 5,6 is the ssd (sdc) and cdrom. BIOS is set to raid fro port 1-4 and IDe for port 5-6.04:54
wookienz"set to sdc" ?04:54
skornPlease can someone help me mount an hfs+ journaled drive04:54
timFalse_chicken: Don't really worry about formatting your USB stick to anything special. Just transfer the files over to the stick and when you put them back on your computer, they will be fine.04:54
False_chickenOh. So as long as the username and password are the same ill be ok?04:55
NeverCastOpenJDK is apparently out of date.04:55
NeverCastand it's the latest lol.04:56
skorndoes anyone know how to mount hfs+ drives04:56
timFalse_chicken: It's pretty complex. When you take them from your Ubuntu HD (probably ext4 or ext3) and put them on a USB, it will lose the special permissions because the USB drive is FAT32. When you transfer them back when you get your Ubuntu back up, they will be given the right permissions by whatever user you are logged in as.04:56
jnewbuntuwookienz, are you able to boot into ubuntu?04:57
False_chickenOh. ok. Thanks All.04:57
NeverCasttim, Okay here goes. I'm going to hit 'play' I'll let you know if this thing dies.04:57

timNeverCast: Personal Package Arcives. They usually have an unstable version of the program, but they are the bleeding edge and might work magically.04:59
wookienzjnewbuntu: where i am now.05:00
NeverCasttim, Okay I'll look into it.05:00
IdeAleSsOpenoffice on 10.04 is about to drive me nuts.  I am working on 5 similar docs.  It works for a while then won't open them.  I have already redone them once and have wasted over 10 hours.  Anyone know how to tell what in the odt file is crashing the program?05:00
timskorn: Ok got it. Go to the Ubuntu Software Center and install these programs: hfsplus, hfsprogs, and hfsutils05:01
timskorn: That should help you.05:01

TohuwUbubegin: you'd need to scan all the contents of the directory, then grab them.05:03

IdeAleSskickingintender, it is a pretty major bug!  Renders OO useless for me.05:03

TohuwI've got a folder "foo". I ran chmod 2775 . from within the directory to add a sticky bit. Why doesn't chmod 0775 . unset it?05:04
NeverCasttim, I'm sure I will know how to install it once i download it (:05:04
IdeAleSstim, I am creating some bid sheets for an auction.  As long as the files were small (3 or 4 pages) there were no problem.  They are now 8 to 12 pages and worked fine until I close them.05:04
Ububegintim : quite cool huh.. just use wget -r ... :D05:05
timNeverCast: Well... You aren't really installing or downloading anything...05:05
timUbubegin: Wow! Easier than I thought!05:05
IdeAleSstim, now when I open one the memory takes of and tops at about 2GB and the program is non responsive.  Sometimes it may try to act normal until I save the file and the same thing happens.05:05
jnewbuntuwookienz, does sudo fdisk pdc_fhdeecgf give anything?05:05
timIdeAleSs: Can you try opening those documents in AbiWord or Google Docs to see if you can save them in a different format?05:05
Ububegintim,Tohuw : Yeah.. Linux just makes everything simple.. Heil Linus Torwalds...05:06

prince_jammysdeltree_: because you ran fileroller as admin using 'gksu', which allowed you to write to /usr/share/whatever06:12
timdeltree_: You were denied permission because the /usr/ directory is owned by root. You needed to do "gksu" which runs root with graphics so you can use the extractor program to get those files from the user side to the root side.06:12

jendaMorning. I'm using Lucid and compiz (or whatever the accelerated desktop is called now - it was installed as default). I have four workspaces and I often switch between them - I have very specific applications running on each. However, the Ctrl+Alt+arrowkey shortcut only works in one out of ten times. There doesn't seem to be any explanation (or any difference between the cases). I press the keys once and the workspace slides - the next second, the same s06:23
seidosmy sound mixer icon is missing from the gnome-panel, how can I start it?06:24
mistermattI'll make a forum post on the ubunutu forums maybe06:24
sweetpisimon: adding a theme isnt going to install programs the user had, where you downloaded it, you should ask what programs were running06:24

deltree_ok more entry level questions. in my users and groups settings i have disabled the login password. yet i am still asked to unlock the default keyring at login. how can i disable this prompt while keeping a password for system changes and installation of programs?06:24
seidossebsebseb, that won't work, restarting doesn't fix the problem06:25
simonsweetpi, but i shouldnt have hemes and csettings?06:25
ActionParsnipdeltree_: there's a pam keyring package which should unlock the key at login. Let me find a guide06:25
sebsebsebsimon: and you can't just add it to panel either?06:25
sebsebsebseidos: ^06:25
deltree_and do you people get paid for helping everyone out or are you just packed full of awesome?06:26
sebsebsebdeltree_: volunters not paid06:26
sweetpisimon: sry didnt realize yours looked stock, maybe the theme isnt compatible06:26
seidossebsebseb, what?06:26
simonsweetpi, the problem is the configuration06:26
deltree_bonus awesome to all you06:26
sebsebsebseidos: as in above, since I messaged simon by mistake06:26

boxbeats1hi guys, im looking for a resource to teach me how to create a public mySQL server i can access from multiple EC2 servers06:30
boxbeats1i've googled for half an hour but no luck06:30
boxbeats1any suggestions?06:31
Shpookprince_jammys, sweetpi: Thanks for the help guys. I'll get the rest of it figured out tomorrow, ou got me pretty far though. Again, thanks.06:31
maxwellianSpaztic_One: are you saying you have another machine that has a broadcom card?06:31
ActionParsnipross__: you can install them by installing kubuntu-desktop, fluxbox, lxde or whatever de you desire. There are many in the repo06:31
prince_jammysShpook: welcome06:31
BaSHserver irclobby.com06:31
ross__would sudo apt-get install kubuntu-desktop work?06:31
ActionParsnip!sl | boxbeats106:32
ActionParsnipWow, no factoid. Will suggest later06:32
boxbeats1o ok ActionParsnip06:32
maxwellianIs there a list of the factoids?06:32
deltree_i opened that file with gedit but cant seem to actually edit anything06:33
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: Yes, but that is not the computer I am trying to get working. That one is also running Windows XP, but I need wireless for my laptop for school which has an atheros card06:34
deltree_i installed pam06:34
rollmanis there a way bring back a file that's been deleted?06:35
needpieceofmindok i have a 4318  which uses the bcm43xx i just ran sudo iwlist scan and got a list of networks now the next question is how do i connect06:35
rianhi all06:35
ActionParsnipboxbeats1: you can install an sql server on ubuntu. Sql is a defacto standard so whatever you want to connect to it will be fine06:35
prince_jammysrollman: how did you delete it?06:35
riancan i ask something?06:35
rollmanempty trash lol06:35
boxbeats1ActionParsnip: right now i'm connecting to the mysql server via "localhost"06:35
prince_jammysrollman: that can be very painful.06:35
maxwellianSpaztic_One: What kind of Atheros card?06:35
ActionParsnipRollman: use backups06:35
boxbeats1ActionParsnip:  what is the address i use externally from other servers?06:35
ActionParsnipneedpieceofmind: use network-manager06:35
rianhow to see what wireless ip that i use now?06:36
maxwellianneedpieceofmind: If the scan works, you should have a gui of some kind to connect.  Network manager is installed by default, I think06:36
deltree_should i use a dif program to edit ect/pamd/gdm?06:36
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: 5001, I belive. just a sec and I can paste bin the results of my lshw06:36
bullgard_rollman: It depends. As a rule: No. But if you have been deleting a file using GNOME programs, you should find it in the Trash folder where you can retrieve it.06:36
ActionParsnipboxbeats1: the ip of the network device it attatches to the network with. ifconfig will show the address06:36
boxbeats1ActionParsnip: ah ok. and i dont need to configure anything else?06:37
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/2tuihKB706:37
ActionParsnipdeltree_: gksudo gedit ,will open it. I suggest you make a copy of the current one in case of catastrophe06:37
deltree_cool brb06:38
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Thanks, don't know if I can help, but I'll compare my own setup.  Give me a minute.06:38
rollmani need the source for an assembly program i wrote and deleted i want to see what i done bullgard no i emptied the trash06:38
ross__i just installed kubuntu desktop in the termianl06:38
ross__and i am stuck06:38
ActionParsnipboxbeats1: if its working as normal from localhost then it will be the same on that ip. I suggest you put the server on a static ip (dhcp for servers is a disaster waiting to happen)06:38
ross__in the instructin page06:38
ross__the last line06:38
ActionParsnipross__: quit hammering enter, you are spamming the channel06:39
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: OK. I think it might be that Lucid says that the card is disabled, and I am uncertain as to how to enable it06:39
ross__default display manager, how do you get out of this? I tried hitting enter, q, and tab, and it doesn't work06:39
boxbeats1ActionParsnip: icic ok.  thanks!06:39
prince_jammysross__: do any options appear?06:39
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Just to be sure, is there a switch for your card?06:39
ross__1 gdm 2 kde 3 ..06:40
ActionParsnipross__: use cursors and enter06:40
ross__wait...i picked option 2 and entered, it seems to be unpacking a lot of packages..06:40
ActionParsnipross__: or maybe tab06:40
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: Heh, not sure. Its new to me, just button with a wifi looking symbol on it that is blue.  It was red earlier and I'm not sure what made it change colors. pressing it doesn't seem to do anything06:41
ActionParsnipross__: yes you picked kdm and the install is continuing06:41
ross__what if i had picked the other ones06:41
ross__gdm, i already have this environment06:41
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian, ack, highlighted and deleted half my post. Computer is new to me, just got it in the mail today off of ebay. There is a button  with a wifi (etc)06:42
deltree_well nothing bad happened but i still needed to unlock the keyring manually. what was the other method somone suggested?06:42
bullgard_rollman: It depends how you write the source code of the assembly program. Usually people write the source code of an assembly program in a text editor. May be this text editor automatically made a copy of your assembly source code text. If you wrote the assembly source code in a programming environment, chances  are that the programming envoronment automatically made a copy of your source...06:42
bullgard_...code text.06:42
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Do you know when the switch is on/off?06:43
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Google your laptop or whatever to figure that out first, if not.06:43
deltree_and do i need to remove this pam business if it doesnt work?06:43
rollmanbullgard i'll check see06:43
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian, yeah... lol, knowing what I'm using would probably be most beneficial06:44

joshx12Hi all. I've just installed likewise-open here at work so I can use ubuntu at work. Everything works 100%. I just can't login now as my local user ("josh") or ("root"). Does anyone know why this is? i can log in as the AD user, just can't access my local user(s) to add the user to the sudo list.06:52
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Okay, from here on I'm just guessing, since my problem has always been that the module wasn't listed.  But if you like, we can keep trying?06:52
maxwellianSpaztic_One: At least till someone more knowledgeable decides to jump in... :)06:52
Spaztic_OneMaxwellian, Sure, why not? so, what do I do with the information that was dumped by the lsmod?06:53

Spaztic_Onechecked a couple of blacklistings, not much else. I don't understand all of the workings of ubuntu as of yet.07:00
Spaztic_OneI did add one or two blacklistings, one was already in one of the other files as i discovered later07:00

kickingintenderActionParsnip is it safe to remove printer related cups from software center07:16
Spaztic_OneIs it a physical issue that would mean replacing the switch, or some configuration that can be fixed more easily?07:16

_rwccould anyone walk me through some obvious steps to correct my wireless?07:16

ActionParsnip_rwc: sudo lshw -C network ,websearch for the product line.07:17
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Did your wireless work on 9.10?07:17
Spaztic_OneDon't belive so. I think that may have been when the light was red, though I didn't really attempt anything at that point07:18
kickingintenderi think updating the kernel broke my system07:18
ActionParsnipkickingintender: then use the previous one07:18
kickingintenderi tried but both are not booting07:19
_rwcActionParsnip: Switching back to the prior kernel doesn't appear to fix my wireless issue.07:19

Spaztic_Onemaxwellian, Yeah, I think I remember hearing about numerous people having issues where if they disabled their wireless in windows and rebooted into ubuntu, it was disabled and couldn't be enabled without returning to windows07:24
ActionParsniphopeless8009: ok then run: sudo iwlist scan ,do it show APs?07:24
Spaztic_Oneand that was with laptops in general, not any one in specific07:25

hopeless8009ActionParsnip, your great help so far07:30
maxwellianActionParsnip: No, I use CLI for most things.  I just like hearing about other people doing it. :)07:30
greezmunkeyActionParsnip: what about dhclient Wlan0 ??07:31
ActionParsnipgreezmunkey: its not associated07:31
hopeless8009ActionParsnip, what is this?07:31
greezmunkeyActionParsnip: I just jumped in, I should have followed the thread back first ;)07:31
ActionParsnipmaxwellian: me too. I use the interfaces file most times so network manager apps aren't needed07:32
maxwellianActionParsnip: Well that's more hardcore than me.  I'll have to read that link. :)07:32
greezmunkeyActionParsnip is all pretty and clicky...07:33
ActionParsnipmaxwellian: makes system boot faster and use less ram (no nm stinking the place up)07:33
maxwellianActionParsnip: Not only that, but I've had problems where iwlist scan would show my networks, but the nm wouldn't see them.07:33
hopeless8009ActionParsnip, where do i type auto do i have to edit a file to do this07:35

maxwellianhopeless8009: He probably got dropped somehow.  Hang in there.07:36
greezmunkeyI thought I cheezed him of for a sec...07:36
maxwellianhopeless8009, If you're talking about the link he gave you, it's referring to your /etc/network/interfaces file.07:36
hopeless8009greezmunkey, maxwellian, thanks guys do you have any info for me07:36

deltree_im having n oo b pains07:39
maxwellianhopeless8009: You'll be okay, don't worry. :)  If you do set about editing it, we'll have you make a backup first.07:39
hopeless8009maxwellian, it would be great if you could walk me thow this07:40
maxwellianhopeless8009: I'd love to, but I don't know how to set up the network with that file. :\07:40
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, it's pretty easy. Change to the /etc/network directory.07:40
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Any luck?07:41
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian: Hey, i'm on 9.10 currently (which took forever to boot up from off of the disk) and it doesn't seem to be any different than lucid07:41
patman023hey all, any guesses on performance of ubuntu vs xubuntu on a 2000-vintage POS dell? p3 sub 1GHz 256 mb ram? client has 0 money (paying in coffee) and I couldnt salvage windows due to HDD slowly dying07:41
maxwellianSpaztic_One: So rfkill shows the hard kill?07:41
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: you there?07:41
Spaztic_OneOh, haven't checked that yet07:41
hopeless8009greezmunkey, yes07:41
hopeless8009greezmunkey, i am now07:41
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, now type sudo cp ./interfaces interfaces.orig07:42
Spaztic_OneYeah, maxwellian, it still says soft blocked, no, and hard blocked yes07:42
mcs-che_type update-initramfs -u -k all but nothing happened, why? who ca help?07:42
maxwellianSpaztic_One: And if you press the switch and check again, it doesn't change?07:42
otakdeltree_: ifyou just want auto login then run sudo gdmsetup07:42
prince_jammyspatman023: how much coffee?07:42
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok i didit07:43
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian, that is, unfortunately, correct.07:43
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: type ls - do you see your copy?07:43
Spaztic_OneDo you think that maybe I need to see if there is something I can do in the BIOS?07:43
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: lowercase LS07:43
patman023prince_jammys: enough - basically shes a coworker, every break for the near future (and it's Tim Hortons)07:44
hopeless8009greezmunkey, yes07:44
prince_jammyspatman023: anyway, that should run fine on a lighter system, like xubuntu or fluxbox, or others.07:44
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Rats.  I was banking on it working this time. :\07:44
deltree_it auto logs in but asks me to unlock the default keyring although i changed the default password to nothing and installed something called debkeyring that did nothing07:44
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: now sudo touch testfile07:44
patman023prince_jammys: xfce better than gnome i assume you mean?07:44
prince_jammyspatman023: yes07:44
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Okay, well at least we can be pretty sure that the problem is with that switch.07:45
otakpatman023: hey i have a c.2000 pos dell07:45
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Or rather, how the kernel is dealing with that switch.07:45
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok i did that07:45
Spaztic_OneAh, so it is likely fixable, though it may be a pain in the neck...07:45
maxwellianSpaztic_One: If it's showing as a hard kill, that means the kernel thanks the kill switch is on.07:45
prince_jammyspatman023: you may test out both if you have the drive space. maybe gnome isn't so bad there. xubuntu should be fine. fluxbox would definitely be just fine.07:45
Spaztic_OneIs there some command to change that?07:46
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: what your'e going to do next is edit the testfile you just made to get familiar with vi, ok.. type sudo vi testfile (you will see an empty file)07:46
patman023been waiting 45 minutes for "sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop " to finish07:46
Spaztic_Onealso, since I don't need to be on 9.10, I'm going to switch back to lucid in a minute07:46
patman023ah just done07:46
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Not from what I can see...the SOFT kill can be changed with software, but the hard kill can't, apparently.07:46
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Go ahead, I'll check some more on Google.07:47
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: do you have a notebook handy, and something to write with, if not please get them.07:47
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok i see a bunch of blue dashes along the left side07:47
deltree_yeah its already on auto login07:47
Spaztic_OneAlright, and thank you so much for your assistance thus far07:47
otakpatman023: it  runs debian xfce slow-ok. gnome laughable. I think lxde is quicker than either tho'07:47
hopeless8009greezmunkey, i have a office doc open shoot07:47
maxwelliangreezmunkey: You don't want to try an easier editor for this?07:47
DocPlatypuspatman023: I'm using a Compaq of similar vintage and it's only really useful for very limited things like IRC and email. running Ubuntu (GNOME) and I really don't want to try to learn Xfce07:48
maxwelliangreezmunkey: (Sorry to butt in, I just wonder if it'd be easier in pico or something.)07:48
patman023otak: tried lxde didnt like it too much yet, but thats cause not enough tweak time or resources found yet)07:48
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok getting into a file is vi {filename}, you just did that. Getting out is - :q - do that.07:48
greezmunkeymaxwellian: don't know it, or use it.07:49
otakdeltree_: do you have gnome-keyring-daemon in your startup applications?07:49
greezmunkeymaxwellian: I'll be done i a few minutes.07:49

Guest66625hi im having an issue with my video card and loading the xserver, its an ATI Radeon HD 420007:54
deltree_i assume gnome? its ubuntu 10.04 desktop? does that help?07:54
prince_jammysGuest66625: describe the whole problem and someone might be able to help.07:54
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, you can create an empty file, open it in vi, insert characters, and save and exit. just two more commands, and you are set!07:54
patman023hrm @ docp / otak / p_jammys i get a Lubuntu Netboox automatically in login screen settings this may prove to be workable07:54
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, three07:54
odb|fideldeltree_: if you dont know what you are using - logout and check the session type at login screen of (most likely gdm)07:55
shubbarafter i downloaded a package source with apt-get source, where can i find it?07:55
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: did the file save and exit?07:55
deltree_ok logging out07:55
maxwellianshubbar: Should have ended up in the current directory?07:55
maxwellianshubbar: Why are you downloading source anyway?07:56
hopeless8009greezmunkey, im trying to remember07:56
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: are you out of vi now?07:56
Guest66625the fglxr is not finding a matching device, meaning i can not load xserver, cause my ATI RAdeon HD 4200 is not on their list i guess07:56
shubbarmaxwellian, to make a modification and compile it07:56
prince_jammysGuest66625: you may need to use the open-source 'radeon' driver.07:57
deltree_yeah, it wouldnt let me log back in.07:57
odb|fideldeltree_: ?07:57
hopeless8009greezmunkey, when i did :wq! it says press enter or type command to continue07:57
deltree_failure to initiate authentication something something it displayed very fats07:58
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: press enter07:58
Jordan_Uhopeless8009: For a very good tutorial on vi/vim run the command "vimtutor". You may also prefer to go with an easier terminal based text editor like "nano" (or a GUI one liek gedit).07:58
razz1obd, I followed this link http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-ubuntu.html, but I could not find VLC in the repositories. so followed this link http://www.unixmen.com/news-today/1037-vlc-110-is-released-install-via-ppa, I could install. Not sure why I  could not get it from the repositories, all the repositories were checked.07:58
hopeless8009greezmunkey, there is more can't open file for writting07:58
odb|fideldeltree_: i bet there isnt written SOMETHING ;)07:58
deltree_sorry about my noobery07:58
jzacshany know how to check the version of flash running ??07:58
jzacshi have no idea how07:58
patman023razzl: try looking for the VLC PPA07:58
prince_jammysjzacsh: in firefox, you may look at tools->addons07:59
maxwellianshubbar: Cool, if that works, let me know how you did it.  I've struggled with figuring out which packages have been applied and whatnot.07:59
patman023on launchpad that is07:59
maxwellianshubbar: Er, patches.07:59
Spaztic_OneMaxwellian: Hey, tried looking through the BIOS menus, couldn't find a switch there.07:59
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: hit ESC, then :wq!, and enter - see what happens07:59
jzacshprince_jammys: no, sorry07:59
otakhopeless8009: the q! means quit without applying changes. you cannot change it unless you are root.07:59
jzacshi meant -- how do you check if you're running the old 64 bit07:59
jzacshi want to make sure i went back to 32 bit flash07:59
deltree_it doesnt affect my system performance to have to unlock that default keyring every time i login its just redundant and unnessasary for me08:00
razz1patman, I used this PPA - http://ppa.launchpad.net/c-korn/vlc/ubuntu08:00
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok im out i understand08:00
plitteris there anyone here who has managed to configure empathy for diamondcard?08:00

deltree_a simple option to disable it would have been nice08:00
shubbarmaxwellian, i m trying to add fribidi support to mencoder08:00
deltree_seems like a reasonable enough option08:00
deltree_can i delete my default keyring?08:00
jzacshflash 32 bit vs 64 -- how do you tell, anyone?08:01
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Hrm...there's a bug report about rfkill, but I don't know if it's the same issue.  Hasn't been resolved, unfortunately.08:01
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, a bit rocky, but that's ok. In vi you have to be deliberate in what you do. Now, sudo vi testfile - I'll show you the last stuff you need to know, remember to write stuff down!08:01
Spyzerhi all, my laptop is 3 years old now. I am currently running Ubuntu 10.04 with latest updates and upgrades. But sometimes ubuntu hangs like it just turns into a screenshot. The entire desktop freezes and there is no responsiveness from keyboard or mouse, no matter what i do. What exactly is happening???08:01
patman023jzacsh, easy- 64 barely works08:01
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I'm not entirely convinced that this couldn't be a driver issue.08:01
odb|fidelSpyzer: 'top' or 'htop' might help searching the reason08:02
odb|fidelat least it should show you if its a specific process eating all your resources or not08:02
Spaztic_OneMaxwellian Aye, I was slightly surprised when it found no proprietary drivers available for my system.08:02
jzacshpatman023: well, something more definitive08:02
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: your file should be open, and ready for editing08:03
Spyzerbut when i am hanged i don't think i can even TYPE htop ??08:03
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I've seen other posts about people replacing ath5k with the madwifi driver.  Problems there seem to be with WPA authentication, and apparently having to compile from source.08:03
Spyzercan this be related to heating problems ??08:04
odb|fidelSpyzer: can you login via ssh at that point?08:04
hopeless8009greezmunkey, no im sorry im stuck in the test file it says e481 no rage allowed08:04
hopeless8009greezmunkey, sorry bro im really trying08:04
odb|fidelSpyzer: the real problem is - your error-description is far away from being detailed - so its wild guessing at that point ;)08:04
Spyzerohh okay i'll try to be more detailed, the next time the error happens :)08:05
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: alright...ESC :wq! ENTER, and call it jake.08:05
patman023Spyzer, does it fade out grey?08:06
Spyzerits like the entire screen becomes a screenshot08:06

greezmunkeyhopeless8009: are you out?08:07
patman023so in essence the system freezes. any self recovery?08:07

lorenzosuHi all is there a way to search for files on a samba share mounted through gvfs?08:07
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok yes now im out man this is pain but i really wnatt his thing online08:07
abhi_navhi abhinav_singh08:07
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: try this instead, sudo pico testfile - see what happens08:08
Spyzeri.e the only thing i haven't tried will do that as soon as the error reoccurs08:08
odb|fidelSpyzer: that should at least show if its just the gui environment or the entire box08:08
otakSpyzer: Is it a screensaver fadeout. what happens if you touch nothing when it fades?08:08
hopeless8009greezmunkey, looks like a diffrent editor opened08:08
=== _rwc is now known as _rwc_afk
Spyzerno its not a screensaver fadeout08:09
Spaztic_OneSo, maxwellian, what do you suggest I do?08:09
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: play with it, type some characters, move around with your arrow keys, then ctrl+x, watch the status line at the bottom for clues on how to proceed.08:09
riz0nHey guys, I am using Ubuntu-Server. For some reason, when switching to 10.2 LTS, my identd server has failed to respond to IDENT requests. Can someone recommend a good daemon to install? Thanks so much!!!08:10

cyberjorgehi, is BIND preinstalled with ubuntu? or with lampp/08:10
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: can you browse the web?08:10
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Oh, here's another thing.  Do your function keys have little pictures on them?08:11
hopeless8009greezmunkey, yes i can on this computer im talkign to you on08:11
Spaztic_OneThey do08:11
maxwellianSpaztic_One: On my machine, I have a switch, but also there's a function key to control the wireless for some reason.08:11
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: ok, I'll send you a link in a sec...08:11
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Do you see one with an antenna on it or something?08:11

shubbarmaxwellian, fribid check is not coming when configure08:12
Spaztic_Oneit depends on if I'm focused on Fx or on the desktop08:13
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok i see it08:13
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Nothing on there that could possibly be related to wireless?08:13
otakSpyzer: You can start top in a shell: ctrl-alt-f1:login:top:ctrl-alt-f7. If X freezes you can still switch back to the shell.08:14
maxwellianshubbar: What does "not coming" mean?  And by "configure", do you mean you ran ./configure?08:14
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: now, sudo pico interfaces - compare to the pastebin, remember the paste is only an example.08:14
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Otherwise we're sort of back to square one, unfortunately. :(08:14
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian, there are, in order from F1 to F12 (and scroll lock, pause, insert, delete and then going down the side, home, page up and page down)08:14
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok so what do i do form here08:15
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: you know what wireless interface you have, the interface name?08:15
hopeless8009greezmunkey, wlan008:16
Spaztic_Onea question mark, a printer, www, monitor switch, moon (standby?) a lock, brightness up, brightness down, play/pause, stop, previous, next, num lock, break, print screen, sys rq (which acts as print screen for some reason) mute, volume up, and volume down08:16

greezmunkeyhopeless8009: create an entry in the interfaces file that follows lines 12-14, make the appropriate changes based on your interface id, and SSID08:18

maxwellianSpaztic_One: Those two things would likely be the same.  You would get a driver from them, and use ndiswrapper to get it loaded into the kernel.08:25
txwsqknobody help me08:26
txwsqkwhat are the display manager in ubuntu ?  except gdm / kdm08:26
mneptokmrwizeguy1983: i haven't the least idea if Nouveau supports that chipset08:26
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: you can go ahead and add the "mode managed" line and the "channel n" line as well if you already know it.08:26
corinthWhat's the easiest way to install KDE 3.5.X in Ubuntu 10.04?08:26
Spaztic_OneEr, yeah.... Sorry, I meant should I try getting drivers from compaq and using ndiswrapper08:26
mrwizeguy1983sadly nouveau said no devices found mneptok, good thought though08:26

Spaztic_Oneand, I guess, do you know of any open drivers that might work instead?08:26
otakSpaztic_One: on my son's laptop I had to hold the wifi slider switch across for surprisingly many seconds. i guess it's polled only every two or three seconds08:26

mneptokmrwizeguy1983: the forums?08:27
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: (substitute you real key!)08:28
Spaztic_Oneotak, problem is that the laptop has it lit up blue (enabled) and ubuntu thinks its switched off. As a side note, I just held it for 20 seconds and it did not toggle it.08:28
mrwizeguy1983mneptok, the forums came up on google, and they didn't have a fix for my specific issue, it was listed but no fix08:28

alkisgKunin: by default, 9.10 installations get grub2. If you first installed to 9.04 and then upgraded to 9.10 (and then tried to upgrade to 10.04 and failed), you'd have grub legacy. So it once was a clean 9.10 installation?09:05

greezmunkeyhopeless8009: keep it to error, or successes09:07
Kuninalkisg, to be honest, I can't remember... I believe it was a clean install of 9.10, but either way it did have grub2, and it did boot into grub but for some reason cannot find any of the img files (has the list, but gives error 15)09:07
Spaztic_Oneit is listing my IP for this computer as

maxwellianSpaztic_One: Normally the wireless router assigns an IP address for you.  It's common to get 192.x.x.x or 10.x.x.x09:08
brunsgenusin case you dont know what I am talking about that is the link09:08
Spaztic_OneMaxwellian, yes, but we have our router configured to use the 114.114.114 domain09:09
heroxbdHello. Can I use wubi to install ubuntu-10.10-alpha?09:09
Spaztic_Onenot the 192.whatever the linksys default is09:09
brunsgenusDoes anyone know :/09:09
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Okay, I don't know much about router configuration, I pretty much take them as they come...09:09
Kuninalkisg, hmm, I think I see a problem... it was an upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10, using ext3 but this time I formatted it as exy409:09
greezmunkeySpaztic_One: that's public address space, kind of dangerous.09:10
hopeless8009greezmunkey, ok from what i can under stand is it says DHCPDiscover on wlan0 to port 67 interval 3 then it does the same thing a few time one with diffrent ports and intervals no ipv6 rounter present  then name server cannot  be used , reason : temporary failure of the name resolution09:10
Spaztic_OneBasically, its getting what I think is a bogus IP09:10
maxwellianSpaztic_One: 192.*.*.* is a private network...09:10
alkisgKunin: if it was an upgrade, it probably has grub legacy, so you should follow the method for grub legacy recovery instead09:10
hopeless8009greezmunkey, im on a satalite connection but evey thign seems to be working09:10

Kuninalkisg hmm, thought I had done the grub2 upgrade though09:11
greezmunkeyhopeless8009: did you see anything realated to negotiating with the AP, like connecting, disconnecting associating, dissassociating?09:11
Spaztic_OneWhich address, my local, or the one that my wireless thinks it has?09:11
jayanthey guys.. i got windows 7 starter edition and it wont let me install ubuntu in the free spapce of my harddisk...09:11
Kuninalkisg, the grep you asked for gives me grub and grub-common (which is labeled as version 2)09:12
maxwellianSpaztic_One: 114.*.*.* is not reserved for private networks.09:12
maxwellianSpaztic_One: From what little I know about networking, I'm amazed you're able to use the Internet at all.09:12
Spaztic_OneEr, we've used that as our private network for years, like, since we first got a router09:13

vizzySpaztic_One, watch out the logfiles! if your connection is bad, you may also see some errors there, like cannot set frequency for scan etc09:25
maxwellianvizzy: He has to go, but we've been struggling with it.09:25
Spaztic_OneI should go, yes, but if we are close to resolving this, I will stay09:26
vizzymaxwellian,  i have an thinkpad t42p with ath5k, and know those errors and problems well09:26
Spaztic_OneI'll just deal with the repercussions of not going to bed later >.<09:26
vizzyat first you should sit near your router to avoid wireless lan cable problems :)09:26
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Well with the people currently here, what may be one simple command could take hours to discover.09:27
maxwellianSpaztic_One: So "close" is sort of relative.09:27
Spaztic_OneWhat do you mean, wireless and cable problems?09:27
vu1kanso, the other day my up key got bound to 'take a screenshot' all on it's own; I checked the config utility and it said that function was still bound to my print key, but when I'd press that key nothing would happen. Now, it fixed itself after I logged out, but what I'd like to know is how that happened, so i can prevent it's recurrence.09:27
maxwellianSpaztic_One: If you come back tomorrow explaining that you are able to connect to the router, but you can't do anything with the connection, someone will probably be able to guide you.09:28
vizzySpaztic_One, empfangsprobleme :) i mean if you sit 300meters from your router, and thick walls between you and the router, you may have wlan cable problems :)09:28
djmccormickif i've mounted a new drive over /home where can i find my original /home to delete it?09:28
vizzyso, in this case you maybe can connect to the router, but never get a right connection09:28
vizzythis is indicated by message sin the logfiles saying something like: can not set scan frequency to xxxxmhz or so09:29
Spaztic_OneAh, well, i'm resonably close... within er... probably under 10 meters09:29
Spaztic_Oneand where are these logs so I can check?09:29

maxwellianMjateznik: Most people are probably using a program to manage their connection, not that file.09:31
vizzy(i'm on lenny, maybe ubuntu doesnt have /var/log/debug)09:31

maxwellianSpaztic_One: With wireless?09:38
vizzyah! Spaztic_One check your router and look if hardware access is enabled, i mean MAC address verification or how it is called09:38
Spaztic_Oneits signal is poor, but its also at the opposite end of the house as the router09:38
vizzySpaztic_One, maybe you have to enter your wireless mac to the router09:38

Spaztic_Onethe MAC of my laptop?09:38
vizzyyes, you got 2 nics, eth0 and wlan0 or wmaster 009:38

vizzythe mac is written on the backside of your computer09:39

oCean_dumont: -d for specific date %s for unixtime09:57
vizzySpaztic_One, another 'idea': is your router set to a,b,  or g network? maybe have 300mbit option enabled?09:57
Spaztic_OneIt should either be g or n09:58
dumontoCean_ but wouldn't -d change my system time?09:58
Corkotak: thx09:58
vizzyi had funny problems when switching on 300,mbit otion on my router, or using different networks09:58
maxwellianvizzy: The pastebin output shows that he does not have a route to the router, I believe.09:58
oCean_dumont: no, it's just about printing a date, not setting09:58
dumontok thanks09:58
oCean_dumont: date -d "2161-1-1 00:00:00" +%s something like this09:58
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I'll bet you dollars to donuts that if you went to a public library right now, it would work no problem.09:59
mrwizeguy1983looking for someone a bit more knowledgeable about ubuntu that can help me with patching a kernel09:59
maxwellianSpaztic_One: The problem is that your laptop is expecting a router with an address like
Spaztic_Onethats... weird09:59
maxwellianWell that's default.10:00
dumontit says invalid date10:00
maxwellianActually, or
dumontdoes someone have a 64 bit syste? could they run this command? "date -d "2161-1-1 00:00:00" +%s"10:00
Spaztic_OneI've never heard of one starting with 10 though10:00
maxwellianSomething like those.10:00
Corkotak: i've already gotten that far, the problem is when i try to access someting like sftp:/server/home/cork/ in nautilus stated remotly i get "Could not find "/home/cork/seft:/server/home/cork"10:00
maxwellianMine does. :)10:00
Spaztic_Onethe 192 yes, but... yeah...10:00
Spaztic_Oneah, lol10:00
mrwizeguy1983sure, why not dumont i'll do it, i run 64 bit10:00
mrwizeguy19836027454800      <----what it gave back dumont10:01
maxwellianSpaztic_One: So if you're not going to change your router to use a real private network range, then you have to try to configure your card to use the wacko street address one. :)10:01
dumontthank you very much!10:01
Spaztic_Onebe back in a sec10:01
anodehey, i'm trying to install kde-l10n-ja and I'm getting errors about tex-common and texlive-binaries.. is this something that has been happening commonly?10:01
vizzySpaztic_One, maybe your router is configured to put wlan in its own private network (again guessing a lot)10:01
dumontmy unix time stamp goes up to only 2038 on 32 bit system :)10:01
anodeactually, anything I install is giving me errors about tex10:01
dumontthank you very much!!!!!!!!!! 2nd time :)10:01
mrwizeguy1983dumont, i have no idea why you wanted to know but glad to help lol10:02
maxwellianvizzy: He's 100% sure his Windows machine is in the same network as the router.  I have no idea how that happened though.10:02
vizzymaxwellian, ok :)10:02
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I know it's late, but do you mind going over and getting the info from the Windows box?10:04
TrikksCould someone help me get iTunes installed on Ubuntu?10:04
mrwizeguy1983maxwellian, do you know how to patch a kernel to support something additional?10:04
Spaztic_OneWhat info?10:05
mrwizeguy1983Trikks, as best i know that would have to be done using wine10:05
maxwellianSpaztic_One: We need IP address, broadcast address, subnet mask, and default route, if they're available.10:05
ddavidshello all10:05
Spaztic_Onealright, be back in a moment10:05
maxwellianmrwizeguy1983: No way dude, sorry. :P10:06
mrwizeguy1983lol you're joking maxwellian ?10:06
mrwizeguy1983somehow i get the feeling it's something simple i just haven't had to do before...10:06
maxwellianmrwizeguy1983: No, I've never compiled the kernel.10:06
mrwizeguy1983oh, well the documentation implies i don't have to10:07
mrwizeguy1983under the documentation, section for reasons NOT to compile a custom kernel, it said this:   You merely need to compile a special driver. For this, you only need to install the linux-headers packages.10:07
maxwellianmrwizeguy1983: If you patch the kernel, you have to compile it.  Otherwise the patch doesn't do anything.10:07
otakTrikks: have you tried rhythmbox?10:08
nunners42Does anyone have any experience of 10.4 Lucid crashing regularly?  I've installed it about 2 weeks ago, and can't get it stable.  When it crashes the who thing freezes.  Nothing in logs, and no regularity of what it could be.  I've been raising it on the forum (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9537321) but no luck so far...10:08
TrikksThe thing is, I have an iPhone :-/10:08
maxwellianmrwizeguy1983: Sorry, again, I've never done anything like that.10:08
TrikksNot technically by choice, either.10:08
TrikksHowever, I do love the little thing. ^.^10:08
mrwizeguy1983maxwellian, if nothing else you made me feel better about not knowing how to do it lol10:08
vizzynunners42, maybe run memorytest10:08
eokeTrikks: Most people here aren't going to hold an iPhone against you, RhythmBox will certainly talk to iPods so it's worth giving it a try if you just want to transfer Music.10:09
sam555how does one restart the network in ubuntu?10:09
Spaztic_TwoHey, vizzy and maxwellian, on my windows box10:09
sam555what's the command?10:09
TrikksOh, It can do that??10:09
maxwellianSpaztic_Two: Heh, welcome again. :)10:09
TrikksYou're pullin' my leg.10:09
Spaztic_TwoHaha, yea10:09
eokeTrikks: It works out of the box with my Partners Nano10:09
mrwizeguy1983sam555, what do you mean restart network?10:09
nunners42vizzy: tried memory test, nothing found10:10
TrikksWell I'll give that a shot, Thank you Eoke.10:10
sam555mrwizeguy1983: i found it, sorry to bother10:10
mrwizeguy1983nm-applet is the name of the network manager in ubuntu sam555, you can kill it and restart it if it's acting up10:10
eokeTrikks: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone may be of interest to you.10:10
mrwizeguy1983good call eoke, got a solution for me? lol10:11
sam555mrwizeguy1983: i restarted, but eth0 is still not being recongnized10:11
TrikksThank you, Eoke.10:11
sam555i installed a new motherboard :(10:11
TrikksHow do you repspond specifically to someone?10:11
mrwizeguy1983sam555, has it worked at all?10:11
ubu_hi ppl out the a need some simple suport plz :)10:11
ubu_i have bluetooth issus10:11
maxwellianSpaztic_Two: Okay, now right-click on the bars up there and go to edit connections, if it's there.10:11
TrikksI literally just installed Ubuntu. I'm a big newb at this. ^.^10:11
mrwizeguy1983it could be a driver issue if it never has worked sam55510:11
sam555mrwizeguy1983: it worked with the old motherboard10:11
sam555this is the 2nd mb I've tried :(10:12
Spaztic_TwoMaxwellian, ok, running to other computer10:12
maxwellianHa, sorry!! :P10:12
eokeSorry mrwizeguy1983 I missed your original question as some one seemed to already be assisting you.10:12
ubu_i cant send anything from my phone to the laptop acer spire one10:12
mrwizeguy1983eoke, what i need is to patch a kernel directly from the headers10:12
sam555mrwizeguy1983: its the same type of mb of the same time of computer, so the mac should only be the difference10:12
ubu_do any one now how to fix this issus ?10:12
eokemrwizeguy1983: I've never done that myself sorry.10:13
ubu_bluetooth "ubuntu 10.0410:13
mrwizeguy1983sam555, something probably needs to be forced to flush old data, it's above my linux tech level, ask eoke?10:13
Spaztic_OneOK, got it open, maxwellian10:13
eokeubu_: Have you looked at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothSetup10:13
sam555eoke: do you know how to "flush" info out of a the OS so that my new motherboard can work with my old hard drive?10:13
maxwellianOkay, now click the wireless tab, and select your home network.10:13
nunners42vizzy: also tried new installs... thinking maybe need to go backwards in versions and try something a little older?10:14
ubu_eoke no but tnx10:14
mrwizeguy1983sam555, if you were using windows i'd tell you to go into safe mode and remove the driver and reinstall, but i don't know how to do the equivalent on ubuntu10:14
Spaztic_Oneand then?10:14
sam555mrwizeguy1983: gotcha10:15
sam555yeah, if I was in windows, it would have just worked with a new mac address10:15
mrwizeguy1983lol well, you'd be surprised how much windows 98 and windows xp got hung up over stupid stuff10:15
mrwizeguy1983a driver being fully removed in safe mode cleared everything sam555 so it would have worked lol10:15
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Click edit, then go to the IP4 settings tab.10:16
sam555mrwizeguy1983: but I don't know why I would need a new driver since it's the same exact motherboard as the other?10:16
Spaztic_Oneam I to change the "method"?10:16
ubu_eoke my problem is that the blue man works well the thing i have issus is that i can´t send anything like pic from lg ku990 phone to the bild in bluethooth acerspier mini10:16
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Yeah, we're gonna try manual.10:16
Spaztic_Onedo I need to add something then?10:17
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Yes. :)10:17
mrwizeguy1983sam555, it's not the driver, it's the fact of it hanging on to the old info (probably) which would have been fixed on WINDOWS by clearing the driver, ubuntu works different and i don't know how to clear such data from ubuntu10:17
ubu_eoco sorry for my eng but hope u understand :)10:17
sam555mrwizeguy1983: oh, i see10:17
Spaztic_Oneis netmask the subnetmask?10:18
Spaztic_Oneor does that matter?10:18
mrwizeguy1983one of the pros in here probably knows a command to flush old network data and/or reset pci devices sam555, your issue is probably a one command fix i just don't know said command10:18
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Yes.10:18
swampratHow to get evoultion close to try and not to exit(Ubuntu 10.04)?10:18
maxwellianSpaztic_One: But you need to pick a unique address for the first box.10:18
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Not the same one as the other computer.10:18
sam555mrwizeguy1983: np, i'm also asking people on linux10:18
Spaztic_Oneah, I thought that was the address of my router10:19
maxwellianSpaztic_One: For example,
nunners42Can anyone recommend an slightly old version of ubuntu for installing on a server that's pretty robust?  Tried lucid 10.04, but keeps crashing and want to see if it is Lucid or hardware...10:19
mrwizeguy1983i fix windows pc's for money and going to be a network admin when dome with classes, but i only use linux for recreation and not as good at it, sorry sam55510:19
Spaztic_Oneyea, and then the 255 for the net mask10:19
Spaztic_Onewhat for the gateway?10:19
swampratnunners42: try 8.04 LTS10:20
maxwellianSpaztic_One: That's where you put the address of the router.10:20
otak!debian nunners4210:20
Spaztic_Onedo I need to put in DNS server stuff?10:20
nunners42otak: why debian?10:20
=== OerHeks is now known as Oer
sam555so apparently, I have eth2!10:21
sam555but no IP on eth210:21
sam555any ideas how to set that up?10:21
otaknunners42: it just seems more stable on older hardware10:21
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Hopefully not.  We'll cross that bridge in a minute. :P10:21
mrwizeguy1983lol, think it kept your old mac address as eth0 and eth2 is the new one sam555 ?10:21
nunners42otak: thing is it's brand new hardware....! I'll give it a go though....10:22
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Oh, sorry, I forgot to look at the Windows stuff again.  Yeah, just put the router address again for DNS.10:22
maxwellianSpaztic_One: That's what your windows machine is doing, apparently.10:22
mrwizeguy1983sam555, it's just a guess, but try right clicking the network icon on the system tray and going to edit connections, then edit eth2 and see what you can find, make sure it's set to connect automatically etc.10:23
swampratHow to minimize evolution to tray but not to close it? (ubuntu 10.04)10:23
otaknunners42: soz misunderstood. I find debian easier to configure in terminal..10:24
IConrad01swamprat: Try Alltray10:24
TrikksI'm having trouble with YouTube videos, I can't seem to press pause or play.10:24
TrikksCan anyone help?10:24
IConrad01Trikks: Tried http://www.youtube.com/html5 ?10:24
mrwizeguy1983Trikks, do you know how to use synaptic?10:25
nunners42otak: ok - see what you mean... I haven't actually configured much on the hardware side - in fact I think the only thing I've done is change the IP... as I said about, the motherboard has display/sound built in, so not sure what else I could configure...10:25
eokeTrikks: If there not on youtube.com itself I some times have to right click and select "Watch on youtube"10:25
mrwizeguy1983make sure you have flash player installed Trikks10:25
plop_agsam555, you want to change the name of eth2 ? or set the network ?10:25
IConrad01Trikks: Alternatively -- http://www.webupd8.org/2009/11/fix-mouse-clicks-not-working-in-flash.html10:25
plop_agsam555, udev now store some rules to match hardware and assign network interface to ethX10:26
plop_agsam555, look into /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules10:26
mrwizeguy1983plop_ag, you know how to patch a kernel?10:26
swampratIConrad01: Thanks it works10:26
IConrad01swamprat:  :-)10:27
IConrad01... Is anyone in here familiar with GRUB2 and booting *.iso files via it?10:27
IConrad01Specifically, Syslinux-based LiveCD (PCRegedit)10:27
TrikksWait, How do I apply this Linux Firefox patch?10:27
IConrad01I'm trying to add an option to my multibooting USB drive10:27
plop_agmrwizeguy1983, a lot of people know how to do that, and there is a lot of odc available on this subjet10:28
IConrad01Trikks: Just execute the commands that website tells you to.10:28
IConrad01It'll give you mouseclicks back.10:28
maxwellianSpaztic_One: What happened?10:28
sam555plop_ag: is it ok to just use eth2?10:28
mrwizeguy1983plop_ag, it says in the documentation i don't have to compile a custom kernel, just use the headers provided, how do i do that? it didn't have a link for that10:28
TrikksThe WebM enabled version, correct?10:28
Spaztic_OneUnplugged the cable and tried it, but it didn't work, apparently10:28
plop_agIConrad01, http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/Boot-an-ISO-via-Grub2.html10:28
ddavidshello all10:29
Spaztic_Onealso, for a brief moment, I saw both my network and my neighbor's, as well as the one I predefined10:29
plop_agsam555, yes you can, it is not really important, it is just in case you want to assign another name (i didnt understand you first question)10:29
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Where did you see them?10:29
maxwellianSpaztic_One: And we're talking about three networks?10:29
sam555plop_ag: np, I was just trying to get out10:29
Ego_ProctorI have a problem with my sound.  Every time I restart my computer, or logout and log back it the sound does not work properly.  The volume control looks like it is on full blast, but if I turn it up it goes back to zero and then fills up and then the sound works.10:30
plop_agmrwizeguy1983, really depends on what you want to do10:30
Spaztic_OneI saw them in the list of available networks, and yes, three, though one owas the predefined one I have been using thus far10:30
mrwizeguy1983plop_ag, a very simple .patch file to make my built in mic work10:30
IConrad01plop_ag: I'm already booting three *.iso files.10:30
Ego_Proctorsome times I have to mute and then unmute the sound and then turn it up for it to work.10:30
IConrad01It's the Syslinux boot disk I'm having issues with.10:30

maxwellianSpaztic_One: What do you mean, predefined?  You should be editing properties for your home wireless network, not creating a new one.10:31
Spaztic_OneThere wasn't one hours ago when I first started trying to get my computer online10:32
Spaztic_Onethere is one now10:32
maxwellianSpaztic_One: So were you editing the one for your actual home network?10:32
ddavidspls i need assistance with theses errors that show in the terminal whenever i try to save something using gedit error: line 53471: bad flag vector alias10:32
ddavidserror: line 53473: bad flag alias index: 010:32
IConrad01plop_ag: For example -- It has no vmlinuz file and the initrd file is hidden inside of another file...10:33
IConrad01Is it just not supportable, or... ?10:33
mrwizeguy1983ddavids, what are you trying to edit with gedit?10:33
Spaztic_One10 minutes ago, there was only one entry in the network connections window, and it was the one I had made initially10:33
hypn0in 10.04 i came across an odd thing, i booted up, normally (previously i had removed quiet and splash from boot commands), so what happened was there was a forced check on drive cause it had been booted 30 or 35 times (i can remember exactly), the odd thing was there was no other output like in previous versions, there was a spinning text character. at first i thought it had stopped booting, and there was an error, it was only because i had read the previous10:33
hypn0 output, before screen went blank, and cause i know 'a forced check' takes time, that i didnt panic. a newbie would probably thing it had crashed and restart it using button. just thought i'd tell u abt it.10:33
ddavidsanything i try at all10:33
Spaztic_Onenow there are two, the one that has been there, as well as an "auto" one that has recently appeared10:33
mrwizeguy1983ddavids, it could be something about the file you're editing or maybe gedit is experiencing problems, try editing with nano or openoffice and see if that works10:34
ddavidsmrwizeguys1983, anything i save10:34
plop_agmrwizeguy1983, you have to get the kernel source, and apply your patch, and rebuild the module for you kernel10:34
mrwizeguy1983plop_ag, the documentation said i don't have to do it that way, i've built kernels before and it was a pain10:35
plop_agreally depends, you can do it like dkms10:35
mrwizeguy1983i was not good at it, got it wrong even from the guide a few times plop_ag, it requires more patience than i have....you sure it can't be done from the headers like the documentation implies?10:35
maxwellianSpaztic_One: But all the manual editing we just did...did you do it for your actual home network?  With the name of your home network?10:35
IConrad01mrwizeguy1983: ddavids: Using OpenOffice to edit config files or pure linux-text files is a recipe for disaster.10:35
mrwizeguy1983IConrad01, yes clearly, but i think he's trying to edit other files10:36
Spaztic_Oneand the new one also has the name, but it has the word "auto" in front of it10:36
mrwizeguy1983personally i use nano often IConrad0110:36
maxwellianddavids: Apparently this is a known bug. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gedit/+bug/58391110:36
plop_agmrwizeguy1983, yes, dkms only use headers from the kernel10:36
IConrad01mrwizeguy1983: Vi(m) is winning me over.10:36
plop_agIConrad01, sorry i dont know if it is supported10:37
andeeeukhas anyone updated to the new linux kernal and found that their ati drivers are no longer working10:37
IConrad01plop_ag: Any ideas on where I could even check for such a thing?10:37
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Hmm...auto in that context usually means auto connect.10:37
Spaztic_Onewell, both have auto connect checked10:38
maxwellianSpaztic_One: If you go in to edit them, which one has your changes?10:38
plop_agIConrad01, you can't extract your vmlinuz ?10:38
IConrad01plop_ag: There *isn't* one.10:38
Spaztic_Onethe one that does not have auto is how I set it, the other one is similar except that it has dhcp instead of manual10:39
plop_agIConrad01, what did you try to boot ?10:39
andeeeukI have updated to the new linux kernal and the ati drivers are no longer working, has anyone else had this problem?10:39
IConrad01It's Syslinux based.10:39
Spaztic_Oneand it says infrastructer instead of adhoc10:39
mrwizeguy1983andeeeuk, did you happen to install the update to linux-firmware around the same time?  that one gave me hell10:40
IConrad01Actually, it has both an isolinux and a syslinux *.cfg10:40
maxwellianSpaztic_One, okay go into the one that says auto and uncheck the automatically connect part.10:40
andeeeuki think that was in the same update10:40
erUSULandeeeuk: probably you have to reinstall the drivers10:40
plop_agIConrad01, and this tool is hidden in the iso ?10:40
DocPlatypusokay... I'll try again. Got a system I just now tried to upgrade to 10.04 and when I boot the new kernel I get "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!" old kernel will boot into text mode but not X10:41
maxwellianNow the other one that you've customized is supposed to be set to automatically connect?10:41
mrwizeguy1983andeeeuk, that's probably what did it.  i had to force the installation of it to make it overwrite a certain file it couldn't automatically, then purge the graphics drivers i had, then install new ones.  might be the same for you, might not10:41
andeeeukI have tried reinstalling the drivers but was having problema10:41
IConrad01plop_ag: ... PCRegedit *is* the *.iso10:41
plop_agIConrad01, menuentry "PCRegedit" { linux16 /pcregedit iso10:41
IConrad01No dice.10:41
andeeeukthat sounds like a bit of a pain10:41
DocPlatypusit's a laptop with Intel GMA and I've tried i915.modeset=0 just now. that gets the old kernel where it tries  to start X but the backlight just flickers on and off again about 20 times10:41
andeeeukcheers for letting me know10:42
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Okay, in fact, just to get a little more control, uncheck auto for that one too.10:42
andeeeukwill have to go through all of that again10:42
plop_agicarus901, http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/MEMDISK#GRUB210:42
IConrad01plop_ag: How could that work without a loopback entry or pointing to the kernel or initrd file?10:42
plop_agIConrad01, http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/MEMDISK#GRUB210:42
otakSpaztic_One: auto means use dhcp. thats what you want isn't it?10:43
maxwellianSpaztic_One: No, there are two meanings of "auto".10:43
mrwizeguy1983andeeeuk, yes it was a pain, a huge pain.  some conflict with a medibuntu package made linux-firmware not install properly.  did you get an error message when you did the update? if not it may not be the same problem10:43
maxwellianSpaztic_One: One is to automatically connect to the network when it's in range.10:43
maxwellianSpaztic_One: The other is to automatically configure the IP address and all that, instead of us specifying it manually.  (This kind of auto is handled by DHCP.)10:44
maxwellianSpaztic_One: So now you should have two versions of your home network listing, one that's setup for DHCP, and one that's set manual.10:44
IConrad01plop_ag: That link is **exclusively** for memdisk10:45
umc-workhey guys. I have a weird problem. I created an udev rule so my webcam is /dev/custom0, and it has root:video owners, but if I try streaming with vlc, I get a permission denied. if I plug it in a different usb and it gets name /dev/video0, streaming works fine, and it has the same permissions. any idea what could be the problem ?10:45
maxwellianSpaztic_One: For BOTH, however, I want you to uncheck the checkbox that says "Connect automatically".10:45
Spaztic_Oneour router is set to assign network address to computers10:45
IConrad01Unless you're suggesting chainloading from GRUB2 to memdisk and from there into PCRegedit... ?10:45
pimshow can I do a word research in the terminal please ? I tail -f a log and I'd like to look for a word in the output10:45
Spaztic_OneYEs, I did that10:45
plop_agIConrad01, memedisk is a syslinux tool, like pcregedit10:45
IConrad01plop_ag: No, PCRegedit is a full LiveCD distro that uses Syslinux to boot.10:46
Spaztic_Onemaaaaan.... its light outside10:46

emily__hi guys, where do I need to look to find what error is causing my X to crash seemingly randomly? It's a clean Lucid install.10:46
coz_Spaztic_One, mm I see that here too10:46
IConrad01pims: Execute your normal command, but add this to the end:  " | grep WordToLookFor "10:46
coz_spartan07,  you must be in same timezone10:46
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Bleh, sorry dude.  We should probably call it a night.10:46
IConrad01pims: Just the stuff inside the quotes -- not the quotes themselves.10:46
coz_Spaztic_One,  you must be in same timezone  sorry  spartan0710:46
pimsIConrad01: will it work with live output coming every second ?10:47
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Even if we kept at it, it might not work.  This is a network configuration problem, and I'm not very experienced at it.10:47
maxwellianSpaztic_One: If you come back tomorrow, someone with more experience can hopefully help?10:47
IConrad01pims: grep searches inputs for items and returns them.  If the command is ongoing so will the output be.10:47
IConrad01It's just piping one command's input to another.10:47
Spaztic_Onewell, you have any idea why i'm not seeing my neighbor's network anymore?10:47
IConrad01Pipes are your friend.10:47
andeeeukmrwizeguy1983 i didnt receive an error when i updated10:48
IConrad01Pipes make l33ts of n00bs.  lol10:48
maxwellianSpaztic_One: When did that happen?10:48
Viking667hey ho, all.10:48
pimsIConrad01 > what if I want the entire output and just hightlight the words I look for ? doing | more or something ?10:48
Spaztic_Onea while ago. I told you?10:48
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I thought you said you were seeing there's, yours, and another one of yours with Auto in its name?10:48
IConrad01pims: piping to more will just let you scroll through the outputs over time.  I don't know about highlighting.10:49
andeeeukgraphics cards always seem to be a problem with kernal updates10:49
Spaztic_OneI was10:49
andeeeukwell, with my experience10:49
Spaztic_Onetheirs is part of that set10:49
pimsIConrad01, > you know, when in a man page you can type / and then the word you look for10:49
Spaztic_Onecurrently, I'm only seeing the one I made by hand10:49
erUSULemily__: /var/log/Xorg.0.log ~/.xsession-errors /var/log/messages10:49
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Ha, theirs, sorry.10:49
IConrad01pims: That should work, yes.  Same as with Vi10:49
plop_agIConrad01, did you try : loopback loop /boot/file.iso  chainloader (loop) ?10:49
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Hmm...10:49
IConrad01plop_ag: You can't chainload into *.iso's in GRUB2.10:50
IConrad01plop_ag: That's a known bug in GRUB2.10:50
DocPlatypusokay... how do I get debugging output from gdm?10:50
plop_agIConrad01, argh...10:50
IConrad01plop_ag: Yeah.10:50
Viking667can Grub2 actually boot into/onto a CD-rom?10:50
maxwellianSpaztic_One: In the terminal type sudo iwlist scan10:50
plop_agIConrad01, sounds bad....10:50
DocPlatypusI've looked in /var/log/gdm/:0*.log and nothing there is immediately useful10:50
Viking667(assuming it's bootable to begin with)10:51
IConrad01Viking667: I've got a multibooting USB drive with 3 *.iso files and memtest on it.10:51
DocPlatypusI need to see exactly what it's trying to do that keeps failing10:51
IConrad01Viking667: I'm trying to add PCRegedit to it.10:51
emily__erUSUL, thanks, I'll give those a glance10:51
Viking667heh. Wossat then?10:51
IConrad01Viking667: It's a Linux-based LiveCD meant to correct Windows registries.10:51
Viking667what's being used on the key? syslinux?10:52
Spaztic_Onemaxwellian http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/2mqEZ0P410:52
IConrad01The PCRegedit *.iso uses Syslinux.10:52
IConrad01Ubuntu & Backtrack use Casper for their LiveCDs.10:52
IConrad01I can boot Casper disks, but I can't figure out isolinux/syslinux10:52
Viking667yeah, but you're more after how to boot those ISOs from an external grub, right?10:52
IConrad01Viking667: Ubuntu & Backtrack 4 I've already got booting.  It's just PCRegedit I'm after.10:53
abhi_navwhats up guys?10:53
IConrad01By the way -- Backtrack 4 won't boot if you have ext4 formatted drives on the machine.10:53
maxwellianSpaztic_One: deconet is the name of your home network?10:53
Viking667abhi_nav: jupiter? Or is that saturn?10:53
IConrad01It just bitches at you constantly until you reboot.10:53
Viking667IConrad01: ugh. Nasty.10:53
abhi_navViking667, Saturn10:53
IConrad01Viking667: Doesn't hurt anything, happily.10:54
Viking667abhi_nav: I wasn't sure, I knew it was one of those two...10:54
abhi_navViking667, hmm10:54
abhi_navthough I dont know what you are taling aout10:54
IConrad01Ubuntu's updating GRUB.10:54
IConrad01It's like they know I'm talking about it.  Creepy. <_<10:54

plop_agIConrad01, i mount loop the pcregedit image10:55
plop_agIConrad01, there is a linux kernel in it10:55
IConrad01plop_ag: Yes, there is.10:56
IConrad01Called "Linux"10:56
plop_agIConrad01, yes10:56
IConrad01I tried that and it didn't work.  What's your menuentry look like?10:56
maxwellianSpaztic_One: I don't know why it's not listing the other two.  I'm afraid I don't know what else to do.  I just don't know enough about setting up these networks manually to be useful.  I wish there were someone here who could help. :\10:56
Spaztic_Onei'm going to go to bed and stuff10:57
Spaztic_Onesince i have to be up in like, 3 hours10:57
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Yup, sorry we didn't get further.10:57
Spaztic_Oneits ok10:57
plop_agIConrad01, should be like you other linux ISO, just point to that file in the grub2's config10:57
Spaztic_Onenight all10:58
maxwellianIf you don't think it would jack up your other computers too much, I would try putting your router back to the default address space.10:58
IConrad01plop_ag: ... no, they can't look anything at all alike.10:58
IConrad01That couldn't and shouldn't work.10:58
IConrad01Especially since it's GRUB2's config I'm trying to create here.10:58
IConrad01You said you mount looped for PCRegedit -- what is your menuentry?10:58
IConrad01Can you pastebin or something it for me?10:59
unimatrixis there a way to control a remote system with synaptic or the USC?10:59
plop_agIConrad01, i fouhd a lot of doc about boot an iso via grub2 ? they are all liyng ?10:59
IConrad01unimatrix: SSH -X user@location10:59
IConrad01unimatrix: From there, execute " sudo synaptic "10:59
unimatrixIConrad01 when the remote system doesn't use X10:59
IConrad01unimatrix: Doesn't matter.  The application is the client, and as long as *you* are running an X server you're set.11:00
plop_agIConrad01, i didnt try to boot it with grub2, because i am currently using my workstation, the only box i have with grub2 :/11:00
IConrad01unimatrix: The application will use *your* X session to draw the windows with, IOW.11:00
plop_agIConrad01, i mount it loop on my system, to check the content11:00
unimatrixIConrad01 i'm pretty sure this won't work11:00
IConrad01unimatrix: I do it all the time.11:00
hopeless8009i need help connecting my 10.4 server to our network though wireless11:01
_vadimIs it possible to make a script run on boot, before logins are allowed? Upstart insists in running it in parallel, which I explicitly do NOT want. The script must run until completion before logins are allowed, or X is started.11:01
IConrad01unimatrix: It's specifically what X was designed to do.11:01
unimatrixIConrad01 yeah but you need it on both the client and the server11:01
IConrad01unimatrix: No, you do not.11:01
IConrad01unimatrix: I X-forward from my headless server in runlevel 3 *all the time*.11:01
IConrad01unimatrix: X was **designed** for that.11:01
IConrad01unimatrix: The worst that will happen is the application won't launch.  Give it a whirl. :)  I promise you'll enjoy the results.11:02
unimatrixIConrad01 well in worst case i still need synaptic installed on the remote machine11:02
hopeless8009IConrad01, can you help me connect my sever to the network11:03
IConrad01_vadim: You should, in theory, be able to add an init script.  But that's hoary stuff.11:03
IConrad01hopeless8009: Wireless connection, right?  Do you need more than one internet connection running simultaneously on that server?11:03
erUSUL_vadim: ask in #upstart how to express the contraints of your init script11:03
IConrad01hopeless8009: If not, wicd can be used from CLI.11:03
hopeless8009IConrad01, no11:03
hopeless8009IConrad01, how do i get that11:04
hopeless8009IConrad01, and how do i install it on the server11:04
unimatrixIConrad01: (synaptic:22037): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:11:04
IConrad01hopeless8009: If you can connect it over ethernet temporarily, you can install it that way.  Alternatively you can pull the *.deb file manually and install it using dpkg -i11:04
erUSULhopeless8009: /etc/network/interfaces can be used to configure wifi.11:04
IConrad01unimatrix: Did you throw the -X flag?  In capital?11:04
erUSULhopeless8009: wpa?11:04
unimatrixIConrad01 yup11:04
IConrad01unimatrix: ssh -X user@location11:05
unimatrixIConrad01 exactly like that11:05
hopeless8009erUSUL, i've done that and yes its WPA11:05
IConrad01Okay.  And you executed "sudo synaptic" rather than opening up a root shell?11:05
KnightStalkerI saw my postfix sending(receivng worked) not working so,I searched google and finded out to test host -t mx gmail.com for example,I saw it failing,any reasons?11:05
hopeless8009IConrad01, I cant connect to eatheranet11:05
hopeless8009IConrad01, how do i get it manualy11:06
plop_agIConrad01, perhaps you can try to redo the cdrom ? make it bootable from grub2 ?11:06
IConrad01hopeless8009: Does it have USB drives?  Download the *.deb file elsewhere and drop via USB.11:06
erUSULhopeless8009: http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#wpasupplicant11:06
IConrad01plop_ag: They don't provide source.  And that's above my pay grade.11:06
hopeless8009IConrad01, yes it has USB drive where do i get the .deb at11:06
unimatrixIConrad01 what do you mean opening a root shell?11:07
IConrad01unimatrix: The X-forwarding only works for the session you're currently in.11:07
IConrad01You do //NOT// need an X-server running on the device *forwarding* the X session to your remote machine, from which you perform the operation.11:08
unimatrixIConrad01 it gives the same error without sudo11:08
IConrad01unimatrix: Is your local machine also headless?11:08
unimatrixIConrad01 you mean without X? no11:09
IConrad01unimatrix: Then it absolutely ought to be working.11:09
maxwellianhopeless8009: Try apt-get --download-only wicd11:09
IConrad01unimatrix: But that error is what happens when X is not forwarding.11:09
IConrad01maxwellian: I always forget that option.  Thank you.11:09
unimatrixIConrad01 I even have X11 forwarding enabled in /etc/sshd_conf11:09
IConrad01hopeless8009: Do that from, obviously, a different machine.11:09
IConrad01unimatrix: Did you restart ssh?11:10
unimatrixIConrad01 it's been enabled for years11:10
IConrad01Hrm.  Then it should be working.11:10
IConrad01Try ssh -Y11:10

DocPlatypusokay... what exactly is the difference between -386 and -generic kernels?11:17
bartjIConrad01, I have a root partition followed by another partition, which is followed by unallocated space.

IConrad01carlos_: What happens when you mount the *.iso via Nautilus?11:20
DocPlatypusIConrad01: I mean, if that's all it does, then it's nothing that can't be done with free software and they choose to make it Windows-specific for no real reason. I thought there was some kind of trade secret stuff in it11:20

Spaztic_Onecompters are weird, somehow magically knowing the type of connection and stuff11:23
maxwellianSpaztic_One, In general, it IS right.  I was going for manual because I thought your Ubuntu wasn't letting you take an illegal address form the router. :)11:23
IConrad01hopeless8009: It's like the network-manager program, but is a competing offering.11:23
AmberJerUSUL: I guess the script is unloaded now. In case it's not, please ping me.11:23
IConrad01hopeless8009: "wicd" stands for "wireless internet connection daemon."11:23
pepper_hazeHi, I am having trouble installed xen on Ubuntu 10.0411:23

erUSULAmberJ: well; not really my problem11:23
DocPlatypusI'm beginning to wonder if this laptop just does not like 10.0411:23
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Yes, the ad hoc thing is a problem.11:23
ranjanany body here used HylaFAX ??11:23

hopeless8009IConrad01, do you mind walking me through the rest plz11:24
lol-hack hi11:24
Spaztic_Oneyeah, no clue what adhoc vs infrastructure are11:24
IConrad01DocPlatypus: PEBKAC.  The Code Is Always Right.  the Problem is ALWAYS PEBKAC.11:24
pepper_hazecan, anyone help me, I am trying intall the desktop virsion of Xen on Ubuntu 10.04 and it says I don't have all the dependacies.11:24
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Infrastructure is for access points, like your router.11:24
oussamahey there i have problem with may w3af11:24
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Ad hoc  is more like you're sharing the connection between your desktop and laptop.11:24
Spaztic_Oneah... that kinda makes sense11:25
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Anyway, come back when you're not a zombie to figure out why you have to reload those modules every time.11:25
oussamacan i have some help11:25

IConrad01hopeless8009: Gimme a sec11:26
maxwellianSpaztic_One: Night!11:26
IConrad01hopeless8009: Ack! You'll also need "wicd-curses"11:26
hopeless8009IConrad01, NP thank you much your a big help11:26
oussamai download w3af from sourceforge for ubuntu and when i extract the archive and run the w3afgui she d'asent work*11:26
IConrad01That's the actual CLI "frontend" for wicd11:26
carlos_IConrad01: CD-ROM is NOT in ISO 9660 format11:27
hopeless8009IConrad01, ok i mounted my hardrive in the server already how do i unmount so i can move it over11:27
maxwellianhopeless8009: Download the .deb the same way you did the other one.11:27
IConrad01hopeless8009: Do you not have any USB drives?  These *.deb files are **not** that big...11:27
bartjcan one increase the size of a root partition *only* if unallocated space follows it ?11:27
IConrad01bartj: You can only expand a partition into unclaimed space on the table.11:28
IConrad01bartj: So you'll have to shrink another partition in order to expand the /boot11:28
hopeless8009IConrad01, no im sorry i do not11:28
IConrad01hopeless8009: As long as they're on your drive, that's all that matters.11:28
pepper_hazecan anyone here help me, I am having problems with install packages on 10.0411:28
maxwellianoussama, What happens when you run the gui?11:28
IConrad01pepper_haze: Are you connected to the internet?11:28
antonio_hi in bash scripting can i assign to a variable: a=ifconfig | grep eth011:28
Viking667... huh?11:29
pepper_hazeLOL, IConrad01 I wouldn't be chatting here if I wasn't11:29
oussamajust nothing11:29
hopeless8009IConrad01, so its safe to just disconnect the external hardrive form the server11:29
IConrad01pepper_haze: On the machine in question.  You never know.11:29
Viking667there's a BashFAQ for that, I suspect.11:29
maxwellianpepper_haze: Sometimes people have two machines in order to fix things.11:29
bartjIConrad01: I have 53 GB unallocated space and the "/" partition is 15GB11:29
IConrad01hopeless8009: I don't know your configuration.  Basically you need the *.deb files accessible to the machine with the WiFi we want to configure.11:29
IConrad01bartj: I believe they need to be contiguous space.11:30
erUSULantonio_: a=$(ifconfig | grep eth0)11:30
maxwellianhopeless8009: You moved the .deb file onto an external drive from your Internet-ready machine, moved the drive over to the server, and now you want to unmount the drive from the server?11:30
IConrad01antonio_: Basically go with Viking667's answer.  But erUSUL is the specific case.11:30
erUSULbartj: i would move the home partition to the 53 GiB partition11:30
erUSUL!separatehome | bartj11:31
ubottubartj: Your home directory is where all of your personal files are usually kept. For moving your home directory to a separate partition, please see: http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/separatehome11:31
IConrad01hopeless8009: Once you install the *.deb files you don't need the external drive to remain attached. That is absolutely correct.11:31
pepper_hazeIConrad01, I am trying to install ubuntu-xen-desktop with synaptic and it says I don't have all the dependacies, I think I don't have the ppa(?) or something to install it, I think this is a flaw with the packages with 10.0411:31

erUSULbubuzzz: nuhup and & at the end i.e. $ nohup firefox &11:44
pepper_hazeIConrad01, how do I install them?11:44
IConrad01Basically, somewhere on the PPA's home page should be a link like "ppa:so-and-so/ppa"11:44
bubuzzzok. Work perfectly. Thank you very muchg11:45
maxwelliankickingintender: Start from the beginning. You had a working installation of Windows XP?11:45
maxwelliankickingintender: Then what did you do?11:45
IConrad01add that from Synaptic - Settings - Repositories - Other Software "+ add"11:45
abhi_navkickingintender, i suggest you go to xp and from there make a free space (not formated) for ubuntu. and then go to ubuntu installation. it wll detect that free partition and then install buntu there11:45
IConrad01Use that "ppa:so-and-so" line as the thing to go in the field that'll pop up with.11:45
IConrad01And then reload synaptic and give the install of Xen another whirl.11:46

erUSULbartj: i that the db is somewhere in /var/ why not move var to that 53GiB space ?11:49
maxwellianwelcome: That's right.  This is also true of Cedega.  They're emulators, not everything is going to work.11:49
IConrad01welcome: Of course not.  It's like twenty guys trying to replicate the work thousands.11:49
IConrad01maxwellian: Argh.  WINE is not an emulator.11:50
IConrad01WINE *is* an emulation in the sense that it replicates the API of Windows.11:50
bartjCurrently there are two solutions ?11:50
IConrad01But it is a genuine implementation, and is thus not an emulator.11:50
IConrad01Cedega, on the other hand, *IS* an emulator.11:50

maxwellianIConrad01: Geez, it's not like your point is contained IN THE NAME of the software... ;)11:51

maxwellianmilk: What'd you go and do that for?12:03
IConrad01maxwellian: I'm eyeballing a phone w/ 8 GB of internal storage.12:03
IConrad01And a microSD card slot expandable to 32 GB.12:03
milki was trying to install another version or somthing12:03
milkdidnt know this would happen12:03
IConrad01(I.e.; 32 + 8 )12:03
maxwellianIConrad01: My phone bitches at me when I get up to 100 text messages.  Inbox and outbox.12:03
IConrad01milk: There's a chance the old one is still in your apt-cache12:04
IConrad01milk: That being said -- you might have luck trying apt-get install libgtk over again.12:04
milk so what do i do ? :))12:04
maxwellianmilk: Do you have a record of everything that was removed?12:04
IConrad01sudo find / | grep libgtk | xargs -I X sudo dpkg -i X12:04
maxwellianmilk: If Synaptic was removed, it probably wasn't all.12:04
IConrad01That's assuming it's still on there.12:05
abhi_navi installed mail notification. it works for gmail. about hotmail it gives some error about getlive. do i need to configure gelive manually?12:05

IConrad01MohammadRRR: Try sudo -i "apt-get purge gnome-panel && apt-get install gnome-panel"12:05
IConrad01Hopefully that won't throw dozens of apps at you. :-/12:06
neil_dwhere is the terminal PATH setup?  I installed a package now the PATH has the same thing twice..12:06

=== DaZ is now known as Guest37389
IConrad01milk: What's in /var/log/messages ?12:06
IConrad01specifically:  less /var/log/apt/term.log12:07
IConrad01(As sudo)12:07
neil_dIConrad01: thanks found it.12:08
abhi_navwhats the working good mail notification ap? for gmail and live accounts?12:08
IConrad01milk: You should be able to use tail, as well, given how recent it is.12:08
milkhow do i do that ?12:08
milkim checking the log12:08
IConrad01milk:  sudo tail /var/log/apt/term.log12:08
IConrad01It'll show the most recent entries.12:08
maxwellianUh, milk, I did a dry run of what would happen if I actually removed libgtk from my system, and literally hundreds of packages were marked for removal.12:09
* abhi_nav ....12:09
IConrad01maxwellian: He was doing an upgrade.12:09
milkyeb i know12:09
IConrad01Upgrades wouldn't do dependency removals like that.12:10
milki wasnt watching12:10
IConrad01It sounds more like the new entry just went bad.12:10
IConrad01milk:  You **might** just be better off moving /home to a new partition (if not already) and just reinstalling.12:10
danielhey guys I have a problem my exaile just sometimes stop playing why?.12:10
IConrad01Sure, it's the nuclear option.  But it'd be easier overall and take less time.12:10
IConrad01Than chasing down hundreds of dependencies anyhow.12:10
milkyeah probably12:10
maxwellianmilk: Are you running the system right now?12:10
maxwellianmilk: WIth Gnome running?12:11
IConrad01If /var/log/apt/term.log doesn't show **only** the gtk version as having been actually removed.12:11
carlos_Hey guys, I'm still having problems trying to install sims 3, but still having problems mounting the thing first, I've searched through many a forum and be confused by all of them, can anyone help?12:11
milkgnome ?12:11
maxwellianmilk: Err, do you have a graphical interface?  Windows?12:11
maxwellianmilk: Then I can't imagine it being that bad...from what I understand, Gnome would depend on libgtk...12:11
IConrad01maxwellian: He might just not be able to open new sessions.12:12
milkthere are very few things left12:12
IConrad01Milk: what's in that term.log file?12:12

ubuntuhelp me please ? can you ?»12:17
IConrad01Use a LiveCD to separate your /home partition so your personal settings and the like don't go away.12:17
IConrad01And then just reinstall your root directory.12:17
carlos_IConrad01: is that not the file format?12:17
