oneirosFadehynopio: Oh, ok.  Just making sure it wasn't the way I said it :)00:05
Silent_DreamJordan_U: I believe there was, there were some really complicated questions about if i wanted to upgrade grub, keep grub, try both upgrading and keeping it in 3 separate places or something, and I didnt know what to do, so i just skipped it, and now I am stuck on this menu00:05
Silent_DreamJordan_U: I am dualbooting with windows 7 as well so I didnt want to mess anything up, didnt know how to answer the grub questions00:06

dextro_the installer is crashing right after i hit next on the keyboard layout page00:07
Dr_Willisridin:  yes you can.. be sur to tell grub to put the bootloader on the externals MBR. and it will be a little slower then internal00:07
Jordan_USilent_Dream: Can you pastebin the output of "ls -l /dev/disk/by-id/"?00:07
dextro_i assume the installer doesnt like my windows partition and is crashing00:07
violinapprenSilent_Dream: are you installing inside a virtual machine?00:07

Dr_Willisridin:  you tell the inttaller , like the last dialog it has an  button you click.00:09
Dr_Willisridin:  unless you want to put grub on the internal hard drive.00:09
ridindr_willis, this harddrive is failing00:10
Dr_Willisridin:  or just unplug all internal hd's  so it can only put it on the usb hd.00:10
Mr_SonomaoneirosFade, right, thats what i'm trying to figure out. is everyone else having these issues or is it just me?00:10
ridindr_willis, sorry confused ^^00:10
oneirosFadeMr_Sonoma: Not when I updated a few hours ago, but let me check00:10
Dr_Willisridin:  you tell the installer where to put GRUB at - as the last thing the installer does. OR unplug the internal hard drive00:10
ridinok dr_willis00:11
smerzCan someone remind me what the command was to do a make install and create a .deb package out of it?00:11

ridindr_willis, you mean i have to go inside my tower and actually unplug the cords?00:11
smerzthank you well_laid_lawn00:12
Dr_Willisridin:  you can.. takes me all of like.. 60 sec to do that.00:12
Dr_Willisridin:  OR you tell the installer where to put it at.00:12
oneirosFaderidin: You could disable the internal drive via the BIOS, as well00:12
ridinokok, i know what to do with bios, thanks dr_willis and oneirosfade00:12
Dr_Willisridin:  if your internal drive is failing.. why not take apart the usb drive.. and stick it intenal?00:12
ridindr_willis, internals keeps on failing00:13
Jordan_USilent_Dream: Just to make sure I have everything correct. When you get to the screen "You chose not to install GRUB to any devices..." there is a "yes" option and a "no" option, and which ever you select you just come back to the same screen?00:13
Dr_Willisridin:  if thasts true.. then you may want to check your cooling..00:13
Silent_DreamJordan_U: I have only tried the "no" option, and it takes me back to that same screen00:14
oneirosFaderidin: Yeah, if the internals consistantly fail, check cooling and check those drives on another system to see if they actually failed - may be a controller issue00:14

boumahelp, you know the bug with ubuntu adding _'s to a mount, which stuffs up eg. bittorrent auto downloading to a largish drive and not fill the ~ till the system locks and the home dir has to be deleted so it will login again, this makes ubuntu seem a bit fragile in comparison to xp to my friend, which it is not, but im trying to prevent this scenario from occuring again. any suggestions please00:25

beppoa bit tired^^00:30
Dr_Willisbeppo:  you definatly want to use a bs= option - or else dd can be very slow00:30
Silent_DreamJordan_U: I should clarify; I was using apt-get update, that seems to have finished.  I havent done apt-get upgrade yet00:30
^peanut^Dr_Willis: dd without it should now being defaulting to bs=1k (atleast on my centos servers it does)00:31
beppohow to do that excatly?00:31
beppodd runs, system is lagging hard00:31
Dr_Willis^peanut^:  ive not tried it lately. but i do know when i was dding some isos  in the last release. it was a 4x speed boost. :) it may be differnt now.00:32
^peanut^beppo: so... "time dd if=/path/to/large/file of=/mount/point/to/raid bs=1k00:32
Silent_DreamJordan_U: By the way, I'm doing this from a livecd, since my Ubuntu froze upon upgrading.  So I have mounted my /dev/sda6 and chroot to it, and ran apt-get from there.  so i am doing this all on a livecd, idk if that makes a difference00:32

akgranerHey is anyone have trouble getting the Ubuntu Software Center to open on Lucid?00:39
^peanut^beppo: how bout this. run top in 1 shell, then run the dd command. and just watch and see what is taking up all the cpu cycles. a dd really shouldn't lag your box that hard00:39
foureight84thanks LjL00:39
beppocpu is quite low00:41
beppoit's because of accessing the hard drives00:41
^peanut^beppo: I also wonder what the settings for the raid are on the controller. like cache wait time, cache enabled at all or disabled...00:41
^peanut^beppo. is the main os installed on the raid too?00:41
^peanut^beppo: so it's all one large file-system00:42
beppoin the controller bios i have 64k, and read and write caching enabled00:42
beppoyes, one large filesystem00:42
^peanut^beppo: ah ok00:42
beppobut in dmesg is written that caching is disabled00:42
^peanut^beppo: try hdparam? try to see if you can change the drives cache state00:43
beppoif i ONLY copy OR read from the array everything is fine00:43
beppobut doing both results in system "lags"00:43
^peanut^beppo: yea, in my experience OS and Data should not reside on the same raid. for many reasons. As for the speed issue, I have nothing here to test with because I don't have a similar setup with os and raid and data all on 1 raid00:45
beppoi set it up as an lvm00:45
Silent_DreamJordan_U: Are you there?00:45
beppojust because i was lazy i only choosed one partition00:46
^peanut^beppo: yea that won't matter much. the 3 disks are raided, then you created an lvm partition. yet the os is still on the raid. again, not sure if that really matters or not. I've just never set things up that way =)00:46
beppoi first installed 9.04 and i know excatly everything ran fine00:46
Jordan_USilent_Dream: Yes00:47
beppobut at any point, i don't know, i realized the problem00:47

sebsebsebScunizi: yep  trolls can live under bridges :D01:12
Dr_Willisbouma:  i also am sure to give every filesystem a proper 'label' for mount to use for the mountpoint.01:12
Perv_69for some reason Firefox has been acting...strange, i hade to rv ~/.mozilla/firefox lots of times01:12

sebsebsebFirefox :)01:12
ghindoDo the ShipIt discs come with a 64-bit installer?01:13
sebsebsebfor opening aMSN you use Opera,  I doubt that some how01:13
Perv_69So...Whats the topic?01:13
Dr_Willisghindo:  i do not think so.01:13
sebsebsebUbuntu Support01:13
Perv_69Why not?01:13
Perv_69I did it01:13
Perv_69Just change preferences01:13
Perv_69Is there a problem in opera?01:13
ghindoDr_Willis, well crap.  Do you know of anyway to check for sure?01:14
sebsebsebyou don't need Opera to pen other programs01:14
Dr_Willisghindo:  they ship the 32bit cd..  if you want 64bit.. you need 64bit cd's01:14
Perv_69Well, firefox just does not work anymore01:14
sebsebsebalso the MSN chat network really sucks :D01:14
Perv_69try to open it, and it just does not opens01:14
Perv_69well, i have to send e-mails01:14
Perv_69What else do you recomend?01:15
sebsebsebfirst of all if you want some actsual support here,  good idea to change the name to something else01:15
Perv_69Are you talkin to me?!01:15
ubottuPlease remember that all Ubuntu IRC channels share the same attitude of providing friendly and polite interaction with all users of all ages and cultures. Basically, this means no foul language and no abuse towards others.01:15
Scunizithen ask a question that actually makes sense.. you don't do email with FF01:15
ghindoDr_Willis, D'oh, well thanks anyway :)01:16
Perv_69well, I was looking for a sex channel, but then decided to ask some Ubuntu stuff01:16
Perv_69wait, I'll change my nick01:16
sebsebsebif your just trolling on the other hand, it isn't really working.  1.  your not really annoying any of us.  2. its not even funny01:16
* Scunizi is still waiting for ubuntu "stuff"01:16
Perv_69you guys are funny,01:17
Beyecixramdwhen i type a command in terminal, where do that apps come from? /usr/bin?01:17
Mr_Sonomais the sad part over now?01:17
sebsebsebScunizi: ok seems we lost him,  well what a boring troll that was :D01:17
Beyecixramdso can i save an executable in /usr/bin to allow tab-completition?01:17
noob_69I am baaaaaack!!!01:18
noob_69I was previously know as Perv_6901:18
noob_69About Ubuntu01:18
edbianBeyecixramd, A couple of places.  /usr/bin are programs added by the package manager.  /bin are programs core to the system.  /sbin are programs core to the system that you need to be root to run.  /usr/local/bin are programs you added manually01:18
Mr_Sonomaguess not.....01:18
Beyecixramdedbian: so can i ln -s a program in my $HOME to run them from terminal01:19
edbianBeyecixramd, The proper place to save an executable (installation manually) is in /usr/local/bin01:19
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  user owned binaries can to in /home/username/bin  if you want a place to keep them01:19
bastid_raZorBeyecixramd: you can find out by typing: which command01:19
Beyecixramdedbian: yeah, in /usr/local/bin, can i do that?01:19
edbianBeyecixramd, just make the symlink in /usr/local/bin  yes01:19
Beyecixramdedbian: ln -s creates a soft link, yes?01:19
edbianBeyecixramd, We should really wait for the other to talk first!  ha ha.  Yeah to both questions01:19
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: i want everyone be able to access them01:20
j800rmy dvd drive has stopped auto-mounting it's done it a couple of times in the past, and if i ejected then reinserted the disc then it would usually mount, but it ain't happening this time :|01:20
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  use /usr/local/bin then. of course it depends on what the bins are :)01:20
Beyecixramdedbian: hahaha okay okay, sorry and thanks ^^01:20
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: what does it depend on?01:20
bastid_raZorBeyecixramd: everyone has access to /usr/bin /usr/local/bin /sbin etc..01:20
noob_69I have installed LOTS of programs i do not even use 'cuz in the end, i did not had all the libraries or i do not know how to execute them, so, is there a way to find out whatś usless in my system?01:21
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  are you compilimng this stuff yourself? or what exactly?01:21
noob_69I do not even know where are those programs!01:21
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: no, i'm trying to install system wide SRWare Iron, they only provide the binaries, not a package01:21
sebsebsebnoob_69: uhmm01:21
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  You could put them anywhere and just link them to /usr/local/bin then.01:22
sebsebsebnoob_69: for me there is a lot of useless stuff by default in 10.0401:22
noob_69Like, a program for, or was a script (python) or something, a plugin for Blender, i installed that stuff, it was like 250MB, and... I do not even know where that is and how to run it!!01:23
ibuclawnoob_69, beyond "look in the Applications menu for apps that you don't use and remove them from software centre", you don't seem informed enough to make any wise decisions for yourself on what should be / shouldn't be there.01:23
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: oh well, i was about to do that, but i just reminded that SRWare Iron is in my $HOME folder... can i copy a whole folder and it's appropiate libraries in /usr/local/bin?01:23
sebsebsebibuclaw: or he is still trolling, one or the other :D01:23
ibuclawnoob_69, Blender should be in Applications->Graphics01:23
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  Libries dont go in bin, theres are lib dirs.01:23
sebsebsebnoob_69: you could search synaptic for blender, and remove blender stuff01:23
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: where?01:24
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  thers /usr/local/*01:24
noob_69Yeah, I know, but the programs I install in the terminal, i do not know where are they stored01:24
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  notice how /usr/local/ sort of mirrors the main /usr/ layout? :)  thats the idea.01:24
sebsebsebnoob_69: doesn't matter01:24
ibuclawnoob_69, echp $PATH01:24
sebsebsebnoob_69: you can find them in Synaptic01:24
sebsebsebnoob_69: well they came from the Ubuntu repos yeah?01:24
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: oh- okay, okay01:24
noob_69i'll try that01:24
ibuclawthey are installed there, and you can find them in synaptic ;)01:24
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: i will then copy the SRWare folder to /usr/local/lib and then link it to /usr/local/bin, right?01:25
noob_69But I hope is not like when i deleted the sound icon from the desktop, and someone sugested to delete the Gnome Panel... and when i rebooted01:25
noob_69well, you can imagine01:25
sebsebsebnoob_69: from the desktop?  you mean the top panel?01:25
noob_69yeah, that01:25
trainerI just got a new nvidia video card but there are a ton of nvidia related packages in synaptic, how do I get the right drivers for it?01:26
noob_69like echp $ PATH, whats that for?01:26
sebsebsebnoob_69: actsaully thats one of the first things I would do  with 10.04, is remove a load of the junk on the top right panel :D since then things become like before :) with features I want01:26
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  the files in its /lib/ should be linked to /usr/local/lib and the bin to /usr/local/bin  (or copied)01:26
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: yeah, okay, thanks ^^01:26
sebsebsebnoob_69: also its easy to re set panels back to default01:27
sebsebseb!panels | noob_6901:27
ubottunoob_69: To reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »01:27
noob_69Yeah, i did that, but since that day, i have to live with that e-mail icon that i do not even use01:27
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  if you were compiling and installing. you would tell it to install to /usr/local/ and thus all the things for lib go to lib. and bin to bin and so forth uinder /usr/local01:27
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  unless the binary is set to locate them in some other places..01:27
sebsebsebnoob_69: the envelope you mean?01:27
kvarleyWhat is rsyslogd ?01:27
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: how do i rename a folder?01:27
noob_69Oh no, I do not want to reset nothing, i learned my lesson01:27
Dr_WillisBeyecixramd:  with the mv command01:27
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: okay, thanks01:28
noob_69I just want to delete some stuff i installed from the terminal01:28
BeyecixramdDr_Willis: ill sort this out now then ^^01:28
sebsebseb!who | noob_6901:28
ubottunoob_69: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)01:28
sebsebsebnoob_69: sudo apt-get purge programname01:28
sebsebsebnoob_69: that will get rid of some config file stuff as well01:28
sebsebsebnoob_69: or use Synaptic to remove stuff, as was earlier suggested01:28
pseud0cod3rwhats the best way to launch shell scripts at startup on user level?01:29
noob_69How do i PM?01:29
NobleCan anyone please pastebin their ~/.wicd/colors.py to me?01:29
noob_69like you? sebsebseb: hello01:29
trainerI'm trying to install nvidia drivers from the hardware drivers screen, but the progress bar gets about halfway then it gives me  this error: SystemError: installArchives() failed01:29
Dr_Willisto remove that 'mail' icon but keep the speaker icon i THINK one does this --> sudo apt-get remove indicator-messages indicator-me01:29
sebsebsebnoob_69: and now you want to pm me it seems, hrm01:30
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  what do you mean 'on user level' ?01:30
bastid_raZorsebsebseb: he is looking for xchat sex.. hmm01:30
noob_69no, not pm, like you, a msg in red01:30
* Dr_Willis wonders what noob_69 means01:30
sebsebsebnoob_69: thats what the bot was on about01:30
s4awhy doesn't dd if=/home/deniz/Desktop/ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M;sync make my flash drive bootable? on this comp when i do that, when I plug in the flash drive; it acts somewhat like a CD but on my (usb-boot capable) comp (this one is also usb-boot capable) this exact command (with a different iso filename of course) works for opensuse)01:30
sebsebseb!tab | noob_6901:30
ubottunoob_69: You can use your <tab> key for autocompletion of nicknames in IRC, as well as for completion of filenames and programs on the command line.01:30
pseud0cod3ri mean run level 5 or something01:30
bastid_raZornoob_69: have his name as part of your sentence.. like i am including yours now.01:30
noob_69he said something about tab01:31
sebsebsebnoob_69: put the name of the person your chatting to in the message, and their IRC client will probably high light01:31
sebsebsebnoob_69: she01:31
Dr_Williss4a:  because its an iso file.. You need to use unetbootin, or the usb-disk-creator tool to make a bootable flash frion an iso01:31
sebsebseb!gender | noob_6901:31
ubottunoob_69: yes, I can confirm I am a female bot :)01:31
pseud0cod3rit should run only after the user logs in01:31
noob_69sebsebseb: hello01:31
Dr_Williss4a:  there ARE some disrtos/isos out there tyat you can dd to a usb and have them work.. but not many do it that way01:31
s4aDr_Willis, but it worked with opensuse live cd iso image01:31
pseud0cod3rDr_Willis, ?01:31
sebsebsebnoob_69: yes01:31
noob_69did not worked01:31
sebsebsebnoob_69: you just high lighted me01:31
petrusI have a couldn't find package error when installing libdvdcss3 please help01:31
Dr_Williss4a:  as i said.. SOME can work..01:31
noob_69I want ot RED message too01:31
s4aDr_Willis, so it's the way the OS was designed rather than dd ?01:32
* Dr_Willis thinks noob_69 should realize that its noob_69 's irc client thats doing the 'red' not us.01:32
Dr_Williss4a:  you got it.01:32
MaRk-Is4a: opensuse is a hybrid .iso  for ubuntu you need unetbootin01:32
Dr_Williss4a:  the dd is a neat trick. but it can waste some space on larger flash drives. :)01:32
s4aDr_Willis, MaRk-I, can i do that through debian?01:32
pseud0cod3rany suggestion?01:32
Dr_Williss4a:  i just use grub2 to boot the iso files.01:32
petrusI have a couldn't find package error when installing libdvdcss3 please help01:33
noob_69sebsebseb  why Ubuntu and not sabayon?01:33
Dr_Willisi dont even need to dd to the flash drive.. copy the iso file. edit the grub2 cfg..  and boot it up01:33
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: yeah probably not really a good idea to go into pm, with whoever that person is, heh heh01:33
s4aDr_Willis, i have a messed up lvm system im trying to rescue01:33
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: unless maybe its to talk about other distros a bit :D01:33
sebsebsebnoob_69: ok your just trolling I guess?  not many new users to Desktop Linux even know about Sabayon01:33
Dr_Williss4a:   theres other tools to make a usb from ubuntu iso files.. see the pendrivelinux web site for some.  theres unetbootin, and lili, and some others also01:33
adamrorI for one use unetbootin it works great!!01:34
belkinsaPendriveLinux would my choice.01:34

belkinsaBan him, someone!01:36
sebsebsebnoob_69: sometimes trolls can be fun,  you bored me :(,  by the way I don't fully like Ubuntu myself these days, hence using another distro :D01:36
adamrorbelkinsa no ops in here01:36
sebsebsebbelkinsa: it wasn't really worth an ! o  p s trigger01:36
bastid_raZorsebsebseb: you've turned your back on the distro that weined you!?!01:36
s4aDr_Willis, ok so is unetbootin for linux a graphical program?01:37
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: no I started with Fedora Core 2 and 401:37
belkinsaCann't you use the one that comes with Ubuntu?01:37
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  ???___???01:37
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: on an old computer,  where it also took a long time to install.01:37
Dr_Williss4a:  has windows and linux ports.01:37
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: and Ubuntu much faster to install on that computer,  so yeah  I ended up using Ubuntu rather happily for years, and this is going off topic now01:38
pseud0cod3rhow can i launch custom scripts automaticlly on user login?01:38
Dr_Williss4a:  usb-disk-creator is the tool in the ubuntu  os normally used.  Pendrivelinux.com has other tools for windows and other os's also01:38
Beyecixramdpseud0cod3r: are you on GNOME?01:38
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  startup-manager lets you define new 'auto run on login items'01:38
Beyecixramdpseud0cod3r: there's a program on the "setttings" menu01:38
pseud0cod3rbut i need more a genral01:38
edbianpseud0cod3r, Assuming you already wrote them.  Look at System -> Startup01:38
Beyecixramdpseud0cod3r: you mean, for every user?01:39
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  a more general what?01:39
edbianpseud0cod3r, System -> Preferences -> startup that is01:39
pseud0cod3rsolution like for all distro01:39
bastid_raZorsebsebseb: Lies!01:39
belkinsaThere's also Ubuntu Tweak.01:39
Dr_Williswe are playing 20 questions here.01:39
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: What?01:39
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  it depends on the window maanger/desktop, and what the user is logging into...01:39
bastid_raZorsebsebseb: :)01:39
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: I was very happy with Ubuntu second release in 2005 untill  9.04 except for one little feature that I didn't like.01:39
Beyecixramdpseud0cod3r: maybe you want to run something on GDM?01:39
sebsebsebbastid_raZor: anyway that guy is in off topic now01:40
Beyecixramdpseud0cod3r: or at boot time01:40
pseud0cod3rk then how would it be done if is it to be launched at boot time?like rc.local01:40
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  rc.local runs befor X. and befor anyone logs in.. so it all depends on WHAT you are wanting to autorun01:40
tensorpuddingsbackup doesn't seem to actually do any backups01:41
pseud0cod3rk any other option to run after login01:41
tensorpuddingthe process is zombied as soon as it starts01:41
belkinsaWhat's your question then, tensopudding?01:41
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  it totally depends on the windowmanager/desktop/ the users are using. and so on.01:42
Dr_Willis!autostart | pseud0cod3r01:42
ubottupseud0cod3r: To add programs to start up when you log into your Gnome session go to System>Preferences>Sessions and use the Startup Programs tab. For more information, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AddingProgramToSessionStartup - See !boot for starting non-interactive programs at boot01:42
tensorpuddingI guess I'm wondering if this is a known bug.01:42
ubottuBoot options: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions - To add/remove startup services, you can use the package 'bum', or update-rc.d - To add your own startup scripts, use /etc/rc.local - See also !grub and !dualboot - Making a boot floppy: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto/BootFloppy - Also see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SmartBootManagerHowto01:42
belkinsaHave you check LauchPad for the bug?01:42
pseud0cod3rk that i knew already01:43
c3lwhats up with ktorrent, it eats cpu and memory? is this a known issue?01:43
Dr_Willispseud0cod3r:  if you want to 'force' a program to start for every user. theres some X config files you could change.. but im not sure what ones would be right. or why this would even be desired.01:43
pseud0cod3rany other solution like .bash_profile01:43
belkinsac3l: Is this on Ubuntu or KUbuntu?01:43
c3lbelkinsa: kubuntu01:43
prince_jammyspseud0cod3r: the profile gets sourced on login, yes.01:44

Dr_WillisFudge:  X auto configres for the most part these days. I iave several machines with no xorg.conf02:06
=== og420josh is now known as thatjoshguy
Fudgeyes, I generated a new conf but cant detect display002:07
=== STiK is now known as KangMurloc
FudgeDr_Willis  i read that if a monitor is specifed manually that xorg doesnt try and detect it02:09
Dr_WillisFudge:  ive not had to tweak the xorg.conf in years.  but that sounds right.02:09
FudgeI used to have to a bit on freebsd but still not very good at it, its a crt tv that its plugged into, so am i right that tvs still only do 600 x 80002:10
PurpleyHey guys, is there a CLI download accelerator?02:10
Dr_WillisFudge:  actually it depends on if they are ntsc or PAL. :) but over svideo - yes. its some low res like that.02:10

Dr_Willissuperlou:  you can use the nvidia-settings tool to turn off twinview, and hit apply.02:11
Dr_Willissuperlou:  or move the xorg.conf, or edit it.. and restart the X server02:11
superlouDr_Willis, yeah, i can't get to the menu bar02:12

superlouX, sorry02:13
superloubeen a long day02:13
Dr_Willisthers the nvidia-xconfig thats a terminal app.02:13
bastid_raZorsuperlou: you'll need to run the command with gksudo in order for it to be able to write.. nvidia-xconfig will also need sudo02:13
Dr_Willisrember with an X = its not an X app :) with no X in the name.. its an X app.. heh.02:13

Mr_Sonomarileyp, if your having a problem connecting to the tomcat server i'd check the apache docs on tomcat and see if there's a config file you've missed. usually there's one little "remove me" line or something stupid like that, that gives me fits first time i set something like that up02:32

harlanSo I had an "old: 9.x install, and the install was unable to find the root drive via UUID when I rebooted it after upgrading to 10.04.  I just converted to grub2 on the box, and grub2 also fails to find the root drive when using the (apparently correct) UUID.02:35
kairu0dCrim, at least since kernel 2.2 lol02:35
Guest1231hello, I used to be able to edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default and restart apache to see a local site, but now I get a "403 Forbidden" error, has anyone else experienced this before?02:36
harlanMy concern is that if I change root=UUID=whatever to root=/dev/sdb1, while it boots, it is not remembered.02:36
kairu0Guest1231, check you /var/log/apache/error.log for more specific reasons02:36
harlanI see that editing the grub stuff is frowned upon, but I suspect that listing this info in the user-specific grub area, that future upgrades will be more difficult.02:37
Guest1231kairu0: no such file or directory >.<02:37
wildbat_laptopharlan, try 'update-grub' to fix your grub.cfg02:38
Dr_Willisharlan:  its not rembered.. thats  how its supposed to work. :)02:38
kairu0Guest1231, try apache2 not apache02:38
harlanOK, but if the "discovered" parameters do not work then how do I give it the "hint" it will need?02:39

PurpleyHow do I copy everything inside a folder and paste it somewhere else? is there a flag for cp for what I need? I dont want to copy the folder just the stuff inside02:41
harlanThe best solution would be to find the root-cause of why it cannot find the root disk via UUID.02:41

=== RaNdY is now known as Guest78089
Mr_SonomaGuest1231, ok here's what i'm thinking, maybe someone here will correct me if i'm wrong, your web page is in your /home directory where you probably do NOT have others set to view files. I'm not sure how having a directory that is set to allow "others" to view will work if its WITHIN a directory that does not.03:02

TanEkbastid_raZor, I mean I have a software that has a bug fix or a new feature I want and I would like to upgrade it but I don't want to upgrade other softwares because I'm afraid to add bugs and stuffs in the other ones so I don't want to take the risk to upgrade03:05

bastid_raZorTanEk: what 'unstable' repository are you referring to?03:05
TanEkbastid_raZor, I've heard ppa repositories?03:05
TanEkbastid_raZor, not using them yet, I know my software is in a ppa repo03:06

TanEkthat's what I have understood03:06
Guest1231Mr_Sonoma: that would make sense to any me too (the permission thing), but shouldn't chmod 777 remove any doubt of permissions issues?03:06
ZykoticK9TanEk, apt will get whatever the newest version of a specific program is available, so if you add a PPA which has a newer version then you'll get it :)03:06

TanEkZykoticK9, I know but it will also upgrade all the other softwares that have a new version in this ppa03:07

CAPcapprince_jammys, im in the default x session running now, how do i open a second? i dont want to lose this one03:16
bastid_raZorscreen is worth its weight in gold.. screen -x and i'm irssi on both X's03:16
prince_jammysCAPcap: one way is to do what i said, via the console.03:16
Mr_SonomaGuest1231, i'm no permission guru, i just know that i've never tried to give access to a directory thats within a directory that i'm restricting access to. my thinking being in order to get to that directory they have to be able to get to all upper level directories on the way to it.03:16
Guest1231ohh ok, that would make sense03:17
bastid_raZorCAPcap: press ctrl+alt+F3   then login and type exactly what prince_jammys said.. startx -- :103:17
prince_jammysCAPcap: gnome may also provide a gui way to do this.03:17
CAPcapprince_jammys, i get that, but i dont understand ''startx -- :1''03:17
CAPcapwhat does the :1 do?03:17

wgrantDJIndy: Argh.03:33

patxi just put ubuntu 10.04 on a mac mini however it seems ubuntu does not know the mac mini has wireless. how can i fix this?03:34

eric_3bastid_raZor, um there is no options in the grub file03:37
riveraji am setting up an ubuntu gateway server. EXTIF = /24, INTIF = /24, why is there no internet on client PCs under INTIF network03:37

wgrantPurpley: So 'unrar' says extraction has failed, too?03:39
eric_3hello i need help removing boot options from grub03:39
Purpleywgrant: I cant get that to work, I dont get what the switches in the syntax are supposed to be03:39
lcukedhant, you need to logon to the machine you want to shutdown, if you cannot do that then you cannot shut it down, no amount of asking for help will manage it for you and i think people here wont drive to your colo and press button - but your service provider might know more03:40
=== forlan is now known as deco
wgrantPurpley: I've not used it myself for a very long time, but I'd try 'unrar e SOMETHING.rar'03:40
Purpleywhen I put in man unrar I get the syntax is sup[posed to be, unrar <command> -<switch 1> -<switch N> <archive> <files...>                <@listfiles...> <path_to_extract\>03:40
Purpleywgrant: ^03:40
DJIndyok, so I got those packages and now I can access the sound controls and such, however even though my Logitech Headset is being detected, and can adjust volume from its own buttons, it is still only sending sound through the netbook speakers and not picking up the mic03:40
DJIndyalso, how would I get the controller back in the panel?03:41
patxkazagistar, thx... do u know about the wireless?03:41
Purpleywgrant: See what I mean? I just want something like unzip for rar files03:41
DJIndyor should I just restart and see if that works03:41
wgrantDJIndy: It is a USB headset?03:41
PurpleySimple and easy to use :)03:41
prince_jammysCAPcap: try this, with full path: ''startx /usr/bin/openbox-session -- :1'03:41
wgrantDJIndy: If you log out and in, it should return.03:41
eric_3hi does anyone know grub?03:41
wgrantPurpley: Well, unrar is proprietary, so we can't fix it, sadly :(03:41
DJIndyok, I'll try that, thanks03:41
CAPcapprince_jammys, thanks i will03:41
Purpleywgrant: Anything that can unrar a archive easily?03:41
kazagistarpatx: have you looked here? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBook03:42
wgrantPurpley: file-roller, the default Ubuntu archive manager?03:42
Purpleywgrant: Can i use that on the CLI?03:42
kazagistarPurpley: if you want a hack that works pretty well, you can install 7zip using wine03:43
Purpleykazagistar: I dont have a gui03:43
icerootPurpley: just use unrar-nonfree  and dot use such strage things with wine03:44
wgrantPurpley: I don't believe so.03:44
Purpleyiceroot: It says the extraction has failed03:44
icerootPurpley: then the archive is broken, check with md503:44
CAPcapthat worked brilliantly prince_jammys thank you03:45
Purpleyiceroot: Ahh never mind the archive isnt that important :/03:45
icerootPurpley: also check if it is a multi-archive-rar file03:45
icerootPurpley: ok03:45
Purpleyiceroot: It isnt03:45
kazagistariceroot: I have found that 7z and lzma support is faster and more comprehensive through wine then in native libraries03:45
prince_jammysCAPcap: are you able to switch back and forth?03:45
icerootkazagistar: using wine for that is (sorry) a very stupid idea03:46
kazagistaralso, I dont know if unrar-nonfree supports passwords03:46
icerootkazagistar: it does03:46
CAPcapprince_jammys, yes very easily and my old crappy computer isnt even skipping a beat03:46
wgranticeroot: There's a reason unrar-nonfree exists: it supports some archives that unrar-free does not.03:46
kazagistariceroot: good to know... so why is that stupid?03:46
icerootwgrant: and i was suggestin unrar-nonfree03:46
CAPcapprince_jammys, again, thanks for all of your help, its good to know how to do this :)03:46
wgranticeroot: Yes, a proprietary compression format is *completely* screwed up, but such is life.03:47
prince_jammysCAPcap: welcome03:47
icerootkazagistar: you have to install wine, you have to install windows software03:47
prince_jammysCAPcap: there's likely a GUI way to do something like this, from gnome.03:47
icerootkazagistar: for things which can be done with default software03:47
patxkazagistar, this should solve it - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Macmini4-1/Lucid#Wireless03:47
kazagistariceroot: and it works better and faster, and has functionality the native version does not... I still don't see what the problem is03:48
PurpleyHey guys im trying to download the actual file at this link http://forums.alliedmods.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=69557&d=1279056062 but wget wont download it, How do i download it?03:49
icerootkazagistar: i told ou what the problem is. you need wine, you need windows-software, you maybe need a gui for the zip-programm. think of a server-environment, you want to install x + wine + windowssoftware to extract files?03:49
icerootkazagistar: that is a very stupid idea03:50
DaekdroomTracker was part of older Ubuntu releases, right?03:50
icerootkazagistar: and its only faster because the windows-version is using 2 cores by default, in the linux-version you have to say "use 2 cores"03:50
wgrantDaekdroom: It was included by default in one release around four years ago, IIRC.03:50
Daekdroomwgrant, ah, thank you.03:51
kazagistariceroot: I see what you mean on a server environment03:51
djindy1Alright,  wgrant, it works now03:52
kazagistarpatx: did it work?03:53
patxkazagistar, ugh.. no.it said download driver index failed... most drivers will bot be available03:54

blitzohi - i have a wubi question - a friend has loaded it on her windows7 machine and everytime she goes to update/upgrade the machine freezes up and gives back no status.  i want her to use a tty but nothing happens where you do ctrl-alt-f key.  (A) does anyone have a suggestion what to look out for when update/upgrade barfs off, and (b) how do we get to a tyy console?04:15
bigredradioI have noticed my wireless driver (driver=wl0 driverversion= is alternating between 802.11a and 802.11abg. The configuration from lshw shows  wireless=IEEE 802.11a. Can this be set manually to g rather than automatic?04:15
goncalossilvaI've just screwed my Ubuntu Server instalation up04:15
goncalossilvaran a grub-install04:15
drew1thune3: I suddenly realized my problem. I was running gksudo gconf-editor. That was editing GNOME for all users but not my current user, I guess. Just doing gconf-editor let me edit my current user's desktop and everything is working now. Thanks.04:16
goncalossilvaand now I can't boot (I end up in a grub > screen)04:16
goncalossilvaany ideias?04:16
goncalossilvabeen looking at this for a few hours now :(04:16
pmatulisasdasdf: try 'aptitude clean; aptitude install -f; aptitude update; aptitude reinstall libc6'04:16
thune3drew1: i was about to ask about sudo ;)04:16
blitzoanyone here know wubi?04:16
prince_jammysdrew212: the former probably sets root's settings.04:17
Kuroganeanyone knows how i can untar a file without lossing the file owner?04:17
blitzokurogane: man tar04:17
bigredradiogoncalossilva, Are you getting errors? Can you edit the grub conf or are you not getting that far?04:17
asdasdfpmatulis, same problem04:17
IzinucsKurogane: does the owner have an account on your machine?04:18
KuroganeIzinucs: nop04:18
blitzokurogane: owners are by id number, not name, if the owner doesn't have an account the files will belong to a nameless number04:18
bigredradioKurogane, it only holds the UID. If that UID on a different system is someone else, then they would own the files. Not good.04:19
IzinucsKurogane: then what's the issue? are you going to pack it back up and give it back without their knowledge?04:19
blitzoanybody answer a WUBI question?04:20
=== thomas__ is now known as thomashc1
pmatulisasdasdf: sorry, dunno04:20
goncalossilvabigredradio: no errors. I think I've flashed Grub2 on top of Grub104:20
edbianblitzo, People here don't really like to help out with wubi.  It's usually far more complicated.  A lot of us see the solution to most wubi problems as "just install ubuntu normally" :)04:21
bigredradiogoncalossilva, humm, not up on grub2.04:21
KuroganeI'm trying to make a template i tar it with the owners on that machine but if i untar it on other machine then i lose the owner for obvious reason i dont have those accounts04:21
blitzoedbian, i can appreciate that - i am trying to gently wean my friend off windows :-)04:21
edbianblitzo, What's the problem?04:22
asdasdfgoncalossilva, try  supergrubdisk04:22
prince_jammysblitzo: try: ''sudo chvt 2''04:22
bigredradiogoncalossilva, InstallCd, mount up your filesystems, chroot, reinstall grub.04:22
blitzoedbian, i have told her to update/upgrade using synaptic.  she tells me the machine freezes up.04:22
edbianblitzo, Every time?  Does it give any errors?04:22
blitzoedbian, well, actually it is the package manager automated process and no there are no errors04:23
edbianblitzo, run it at the cli and see if you can get errors04:23
blitzonext time i'll tell her to use apt-get and email me the syslog04:23
blitzoedbian, tell me how to get a tty console?  not an xterm04:24
edbianblitzo, ctrl + alt + F204:24
Izinucsblitzo: you might get her to convert the install to a true dual boot.. or uninstall and then reinstall in virtualbox in windows if she's just testing..04:24
bigredradioblitzo, You mean mknode the tty?04:25
blitzoedbian, she says that doesn't work - and it doesn't work on my ubuntu either - i get a blank screen04:25
edbianblitzo, just use a terminal?04:26
blitzobigredradio, edbian: xubuntu has tty consoles tied to the ctrl-alt-f keys, does not work on ubuntu, do i have to enable something?04:26
Gryllidahow do I ssh to a certain port?04:26
rileypssh dad@
tensorpudding-p i believe04:26
edbianblitzo, applications -> accessories -> terminal04:27
prince_jammysi bet ''man ssh'' tells you. something about -p, i suspect.04:27
blitzoedbian, that is an xterm.  i want a tty console not under x04:27
edbianGryllida, ssh user@ip:port04:27
tensorpuddingman ssh would know, as well as writing an ~/.ssh/config file04:27
prince_jammysblitzo: did you try chvt ?04:27
edbianblitzo, Why?  What's the difference?04:27
gwernso, I'm running a webcam grabber every hour through crontab using fswebcam; but I figure that this will often run when my laptop screen is shut giving useless solid black pics. offhand, anyone know anyway to detect whether X is not blanked?04:27
blitzoedbian, because x seems to be crashing04:27
tensorpuddingblitzo: when it crashes, it should bring you back to a system console, right?04:28
abhijainhello i am just installed cario-dock now i an struggling with them change option any idea about cario-dock04:28
edbianblitzo, You should have ctrl + alt + F(1-6) as tty's maybe not on wubi though...04:28
bigredradioblitzo, No luck with alt-f2 alt-f3?04:29
IzinucsIs there a vnc or rdp server built into kubuntu 10.04?04:30
bigredradioblitzo, I think you should be able to log in without X, Alt-F2 to a differnt tty and start x. Worth a try.04:30
blitzobigredradio that is correct - can you tell me how to restart X without rebooting?04:30
bigredradioThen you should be able to switch for testing04:30
prince_jammysblitzo: did you try ''sudo service gdm stop'', if she runs gdm?04:30
Mr_SonomaIzinucs, yes04:30
prince_jammysblitzo: or 'restart' instead of 'stop', in the above.04:31
noob_69is sebsebseb here?04:31
blitzoprince_jammys you are beyond me i don't know what that does04:31
IzinucsMr_Sonoma: I've looked and looked for a menu item to set it up.. can you tell me where to find it?04:31
blitzoprince_jammys you are beyond me i don't know what that does04:31
tensorpuddingIzinucs: see Ssytem -> Preferences -> Remote Desktop04:31
prince_jammysblitzo: restarts gdm, which is the GUI login manager.04:31
Izinucstensorpudding: kubuntu.. menu's and program names are a little different04:31
tensorpuddingoh wait, Kubuntu.04:32
prince_jammysblitzo: well, it's gnome's login manager, which she may be using.04:32
wgrantblitzo: Does Ctrl+Alt+F1 not give you a tty?04:32
Mr_Sonomai think its already ready to go, try using VNC into the machine in question from another computer04:32
edbianprince_jammys, wgrant he's on wubi04:33
Mr_Sonomabeen a while since i used KDE so i can't tell you EXACTLY where to go04:33
wgrantedbian: That doesn't change anything like this.04:33
prince_jammysedbian: right. wubi doesn't have gdm?04:33
edbianwgrant, prince_jammys I'm thinking it maybe doesn't have ttys ?04:34
IzinucsMr_Sonoma: yea.. and with 4.xx it's different still.. that and I have run gnome for 5 years and recently put kde on my desktop.. still treading water with it..04:34
wgrantedbian: It does.04:34
edbianwgrant, Well than nevermind! :)04:34
FretFullFingershi folks what choices do I have for software midi play back?04:34
wgrantFretFullFingers: Perhaps have a look at 'timidity'04:34
Mr_SonomaIzinucs, KDE 4 is what drove me away from KDE finally04:34
bigredradioI have noticed my wireless driver (driver=wl0 driverversion= is alternating between 802.11a and 802.11abg. The configuration from lshw shows  wireless=IEEE 802.11a. Can this be set manually to g rather than automatic?04:35
FretFullFingerswgrant: I have seen timidity, is there anything else?04:35
IzinucsMr_Sonoma: 4.3 is pretty nice and 4.4 or 4.5 I understand is getting even better.. I couldn't stand 3.x04:35
wgrantFretFullFingers: apt might know about some others, but that's what I use.04:36
Mr_Sonomathat and the fact i hadn't upgraded anything since Jaunty so KDE4 was not really to my liking, and Kmail (my perfered KDE email prog) was too buggy. so i blew the system away again (new hard drive install anyway) and installed GNOME04:36
FretFullFingerswgrant: Is there a good page on how to get it working.  I am trying to get tuxguitar working with it.04:36
Gryllidahow do I install/run screen?04:37
wgrantGryllida: sudo apt-get install screen04:37
wgrantGryllida: Then run 'screen'04:37
wgrantGryllida: Although you may want to look at 'byobu'. It's screen, but with some nice profiles built in.04:38
IzinucsMr_Sonoma: kmail is working well now that's it's a 4.3 port.. the entire "kontact" suit is nice.. seems more stable than Evolution to me.. I've always had issues with evo-data-server causing crashes.04:38
Mr_SonomaIzinucs, see my experiance so far is the exact oposit since upgrading to lucid, kontact (akonadi server) issues when i'm not having any with evolution04:39
bsmith093davfs2 is a royal PITA to set up but if u get it working it rocks04:39
Mr_SonomaIzinucs, i still like kontact better but that's only because i'm still getting familar with evolution04:40
IzinucsMr_Sonoma: yea.. akonadi is a thorn.. for me it seems to have settled down04:40
Zatchariusmutt. that is all.04:40
Gryllida~$ aptitude show irssi04:40
GryllidaSegmentation fault04:40
Gryllidais there a way to get that info?04:40
bigredradioGryllida, DOH!04:40
Mr_SonomaZatcharius, classics never go out of style do they?04:41
ZatchariusMr_Sonoma: Guess not lol04:41
wgrantGryllida: That suggests that something very sinister is wrong.04:41
blitzoi'm back - can someone tell me how to get a tty on ubuntu? chvt does not work.  ctrl-alt-fkey does not work.  service gdm stop does not work.  each time i get only a blank empty screen, and when i stopped gdm there was no console to return to so i had to hit the big red switch04:41
wgrantGryllida: But try apt-cache rather than aptitude.04:41
gwernblitzo: are you certain the consoles are not there in the blank black screen?04:41
ZatchariusAnyone compile the new 2.6.35-rc5 kernel?04:41
^TERMINOLOGY^i have a ? what if you cant play a certin .mp4 in totem what can i do04:41
blitzogwern what do you mean?04:42
gwernblitzo: just yesterday I was trying out 'radeon' for X, had similar problems, but discovered the consoles were there, just invisible04:42
bigredradioZatcharius, haven't needed to compile a kernel in years.04:42
gwernblitzo: very carefully I typed in my login credentials, cd'd to /etc, and removed the xorg.conf using 'radeon'04:42
blitzogwern what can i do to set screen color then04:42
thune3bigredradio: i don't know of any top level way to set the band (doesn't mean there isn't one). However there might be a control available through iwpriv to set the band.04:42
bigredradiothune3, thanks. I'll check that.04:42
gwernblitzo: heck, I dunno. use a different video driver? this is just what happened to me, maybe you aren't using an ATI video card at all04:42
blitzono, nvidia04:43
Zatchariusbigredradio: No? I had to twice recently. Today to fix WoW issue.04:43
blitzogwern, i am using nvidia04:43
IzinucsGryllida: what are you trying to do?  run irssi in a screen session?04:43
_genuser_hey guys using the livecd. the / shows mounted using aufs. is the / basically mounted in mem?04:43
GryllidaIDK, apt-cache worked, I started screen,wrote 'ps', it only lists 'bash' and 'ps' in the list, while 'screen' isn't there, how so?04:43
blitzogwern and it works fine under xubuntu04:43
gwernblitzo: then my experience probably has little relevance to you04:43
_genuser_rather using netbook edition from usb drive04:43
IzinucsGryllida: type screen -ls04:43
blitzogwern, how can i make it boot to a console and not start x?04:44
bigredradioZatcharius, WoW? There's another problem I don't have. ;-)04:44
Zatchariusbigredradio: addiction.. :(04:44
GryllidaIzinucs: "there is a screen on <servername> (Multi, attached)"04:44
gwernblitzo: actually, I was told this later - in grub, you can press 'e' or something, and then append to the boot option a string like 'init=/bin/bash'04:44
gwernblitzo: I'm sure someone here knows what I'm talking about w/r/t grub kernel boot options04:44
gwernblitzo: and supposedly that will spit you straight into bash with no X or anytrhing04:45
blitzoah ok i will google grub boot options04:45
IzinucsGryllida: so you are *in* the screen session.. it looks just like a standard bash prompt.. now do you want to run irssi there?04:45
rwwGryllida: ps only shows processes in the current shell by default. Try ps -A04:45
bigredradiogwern, You prob don't want that04:45
15SAAJ1QVwhat goes04:45
bigredradiogwern, You need to set your runlevel to 304:45
Zatchariusgwern: CAn't you just remove your login manager deamon from autoloading?04:46
gwernbigredradio: why not? it was X that was effed up, and if I had gone straight into bash, it would've been much easier to etc /etc/X11/xorg.conf04:46
gwernit's not very easy to edit text files blind...04:46
wgrantbigredradio: Runlevels have been irrelevant for a long time now.04:46
bigredradiogwern, init=/bin/bash means you will not run your normal init scripts meaning you might not have your root filesystem mounted.04:47
bigredradiogwern, especially since you have an initrf.04:47
wgrantbigredradio: The initramfs mounts the root filesystem.04:47
ZatchariusWhat's the preffered way in Ubuntu? Edit inittab?04:47
gwernbigredradio: couldn't I just mount / by hand?04:47
wgrantbigredradio: So by the time init= is run, things should be mounted.04:47
wgrantbigredradio: Because init=/bin/bash refers to /bin/bash.. on the root filesystem.04:48
bigredradiowgrant, umm, wouldn't that be the linuxrc or init inside the initramfs?04:48
blitzoanybody here know grub boot options?04:48
blitzogwern: if i boot straight to shell, can you tell me how to enable the wifi from the command line?04:49
gwernblitzo: heck no04:49
blitzocan anyone tell me how to get a tyy console after booting?04:50
* gwern blindly trusts in gnome to do that even in X. iwconfig et al scare me04:50
prince_jammysblitzo: did you try any of the things i suggested?04:50
Izinucsblitzo: ctrl+alt+F1-604:50
tensorpuddingyou get plenty of ttys when you boot04:50
gwernIzinucs: he already tried those, he said04:50
bigredradioblitzo, ctrl-alt-bkspace and kill X. (Used to work)04:50
Zatchariusbigredradio: Xorg disabled that a while ago04:50
Izinucsgwern: ah..04:51
SpraynardWhat problem was he experiencing?04:51
Silent_Dream_Jordan_U: I have finished upgrading 10.04 from my livecd, now how do I manually configure grub?04:51

prince_jammysZatcharius: no. ##linux is linux at the heart. this is #ubuntu.04:55

CyisAnyone use a LUKS encrypted USB drive on lucid 10.04 and notice the drives not unmounting properly like they did with karmic?05:28
Alan502thune3, I installed vnstat so it would monitor my ppp0 interface but it seems that extra bandwith is being added to the count05:29
Alan502thune3, how can i fix this?05:29
DayofswordsOk, here's my problem, running ubuntu 10.04 32-bit desktop, everytime i go system > Administration > language support, it tells me i dont have all the language tools installed, fine, but when i click install and type password, it pops up saying it could not apply changes and to fix broken packages. i open synaptic to fix them, it takes 1/10 of a second and says fixed at the bottom, i try language support again and i get t05:29
thune3Alan502: how much "extra bandwidth"?05:30
Alan502thune3, more than a GB!05:30

imyousufI am using a ubuntu box as gateway to the internet on my LAN where there is around 10+ computer/devices connected. I want to be able to control how much bandwidth each computer is using, i.e. traffic shaping. Can someone please guide me on how to achieve it?06:33

hiexpoChrisMorgan,  ok if thats the way you prefer06:33
Nemesiscan be uninstalled videocard is the reason?06:34
ChrisMorganI can't work out why I'd go for a clean installation at all... I have it all set up how I like it, it'd be troublesome having to get everything again.  What reason do you have for recommending to do it that way, hiexpo?06:34
RProgrammerowner: Then I'm not sure there is a way without using gconf (which is analogous to the Windows registry)06:34
Nemesisi mean uninstalled videocard driver06:34
hiexpoChrisMorgan,  because it will be a train wreck trust me06:35
Kuroganeany1 knows this error "Couldn't get a file descriptor referring to the console" ?06:35
RProgrammerNemesis: Not using the video card would definitely slow down the GUI06:35
mataksRProgrammer, no, i want to stop accessing facebook from browser06:35
RProgrammerNemesis: I'm kind of in the same boat at the moment, actually06:35
ChrisMorganhiexpo: for what reason?  I would have /thought/ that all it would be would be setting the flags and possibly reinstalling grub?06:35
Nemesisbecause i dont know how to install it06:36
hiexpoChrisMorgan,  your on dual boot right ?06:36
ChrisMorganCurrently, yes.  Though I rather doubt that Vista would boot, I've ripped out its innards somewhat.06:36
Nemesisi am afraid to have an error installing drivers06:36
RProgrammermataks: Right, you want to keep your browser from making outbound connections to facebook.com.  The most common way to do that is with a hosts file block, though you should probably check if your particular browser has any preferred way of doing that first.06:36
ChrisMorganAnd in gparted, it reports that the ntfs partition has the "boot" flag, while the ext4 partition doesn't.  That's why I'm concerned.06:37
illacI'd suggest host file as well06:37
hiexpoChrisMorgan,  because vista is the controlling boot loader right now with your dual boot06:38
jootCan anyone please advise me on which satellite card to get working in Ubuntu?06:38
ChrisMorganThat's what I suspected.  Would moving the boot flag from sda1 to sda5 do, do you think?06:38
RProgrammerNemesis: Normally, I would say "you can always fix it", but with this issue I am having, the i915 module (driver for intel GMA cards) sometimes leaves the system in an unbootable state (without grub hacking)06:38

_gobboi-pink: right click on panel, "add to panel"07:10
illacI can hardly stand to use ssh when I'm on 3G, let alone pull down a 2 GB image07:10
hiexpoi-pink,  why u want 2 clocks07:11
_gobboillac: I know, that's why I was figuring it'd be worth asking before just diving into it...07:11

tensorpuddingChrome supports h.264 and WebM, which I hear is lacking in Chromium.07:22
VigterBot: No, read section 16.5, but also I always make a backup , just in case.07:22
hiexpoross__,  usually whatever comes with ubuntu is usually been tested and works best mostly07:22
ross__hiexpo : yes that's what i thought but some reason firefox is causing my system to operate very slowly07:23
illacI knew it was something along those lines ;)07:23
thune3ross__: firefox benefits from periodic restarting. Occasionally it can "get lost" and requires killing. I recommend adding system monitor to your panel so you can quickly see if cpu or memory are out of bounds.07:23
hiexpoross__,  do you have an add on creating issues07:23
VigterBotL Often times it is cleaner to remove/purge all, then install/fetch the one that you wish, keeps the kernel cleaner also.07:23
ross__thune3: system monitor? where would that be under? I think ih ave it07:23
tensorpuddingI don't think Firefox supports h.264 at all, though it may support WebM.07:24
illacross just give chrome a try, if you don't like it get rid of it, but I find it to be much more stable, a lot faster, and just all around better ... minus the bastardized windowing07:24

ubottuTaev: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!10:32
ikoniaTaev: I suggest you re-install using the alternative CD10:32
Taevthe whole "you can't log in as root, try sudo" thing is why I said that10:32
icerootTaev: then use debian10:32
Taevinstead of telling people they can do it by setting a root password via kuser10:32
Taevyou're the one making a big deal out of this.10:33
icerootTaev: and kuser is the wrong way to enable the root-account10:33
Taevand yet it worked for me.10:33
Jordan_UDiRaOL: If you run "ls" in that shell does it list both your drives, and does it list the array (which would show up as a device like "(md0)"? I assume the former but not the latter.10:33
nikolamwhy while installing packages (with aptitude) my minesweeper game is goig to Halt? (press to resume..) ?10:33
ikoniaTaev: it's clear you don't know what you're doing if you're setting a root password like that10:33
eokeHi, I'm having a small problem with Ubuntu 10.04 x64 mdadm RAID1.  When I boot the machine it boots into a busy box terminal saying the UUID was not found.  I can correct this by running "mdadm --auto-detect" and the "exit" but I don't understand why the md devices are not getting detected automatically.10:33
Taevthen please tell me the proper way to set a root password, since Ubuntu seems not to want you to.10:34
ikoniaTaev: so please follow the ubuntu guidelines for support, which is not setting a root password and using the correct secuirty model such as sudo10:34
icerootTaev: ikonia is right, so its not ok to flame ubuntu10:34
ikoniaTaev: you don't10:34
ikoniaTaev: that's why sudo is there10:34
DiRaOLJordan_U: i'll reboot (i'm on LiveCD now) and see it.10:34
ikonia!sudo > Taev10:34
ubottuTaev, please see my private message10:34

ikoniaTaev: check out those docs as to why the ubuntu security model works this way10:34
rwwTaev: /msg ubottu !root10:35
ikoniaTaev: you're welcome to override it, but it will limit the options for support10:35
icerootTaev: there is no reason to have a root-account but if you want a root-account, see man passwd and learn to use sudo :)10:35
Taevor you can just set the root password with kuser.10:35
Taevit works.10:35
Taevwhats the big deal10:35
illaciaindalton: give this a look http://www.mombu.com/gnu_linux/gentoo/t-dga-support-in-xorg-2973780.html10:35
ikoniaTaev: then it's clear you don't know what you're doing. Lets stop dicussing this, you have the documents to know why ubuntu works this way10:35
rwwSo, on a related note, can I make irssi's command history (the thing you can scroll through with the up/down keys) per-window?10:36
icerootTaev: the big deal is that 1. you should write your comments in 1 line, 2. kuser is a strange way to change a password, 3. you dont need root10:36
TaevMy system has yet to implode from su'ing as root to do administrative tasks rather than sudo10:36
ikoniaiceroot: he's got the doucmentation, lets drop it10:36
ikoniaTaev: that's fine, you're welcome to do so, however we cannot support you fully as you've now broken the security model10:36
rwwMy favorite part of !root is how the page it links to has a section entitled "Enabling the root account" :)10:36

ManDayWhat's the way to autorun a daemon on startup? Inittab?10:37
icerootwwsmurf: passwd is the way10:37
TaevThats where my Nanny State comment came from. I explained it and I get bombarded with docs on how NOT to get root use-ability, just sudo10:37
icerootTaev: i told you how to get root the correct way10:37
ikoniaTaev: yet it's clear you've not read them, I suggest you do10:37
illacsudo su10:37
icerootikonia: wrong10:37

TaevI want to use Ubuntu with root functionality.10:38
Taevand I am. Whats the big deal. Drop it.10:38
Jordan_UDiRaOL: That (hd127) is odd.10:38
icerootTaev: what about sudo -i ?10:38
icerootTaev: i told you to read the manpages10:39
Taevwhat about su?10:39
rwwiceroot: Fun fact: Debian's expert install mode offers to set up sudo and lock the root account.10:39
DiRaOLJordan_U: it seems to be the CD-ROM10:39
icerootrww: really? cool :)10:39
DiRaOLand the "fd0" is the "card-reader"10:39
icerootTaev: i told you three times how to enable the root account so you can use su10:39
illacaww snap rww10:39
rwwillac: as for you, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#Special%20notes%20on%20sudo%20and%20shells ;P10:40
Jordan_UDiRaOL: Most BIOSs don't expose the CDROM unless you're booted from it (not saying you're wrong, it's just interesting).10:40
TaevI already have enabled it.10:40
icerootTaev: man passwd10:40
Taevor you can do kuser and set the password10:40
Taeveither way works.10:40
=== joel is now known as Guest30046
=== Guest30046 is now known as t0ze
icerootTaev: and kuser is what? sounds like kerberos10:41
icerootTaev: like kpasswd and so on10:41
bazhangiceroot, lets move on please10:41
DiRaOLJordan_U: i'm on the "installation process" and i choosed to boot from CD-ROM (but there isn't any on the drive)10:41
bazhangTaev, any actual support questions?10:41
icerootbazhang: no, i am asking what kuser is10:41
rwwiceroot: KDE user configuration GUI10:41
icerootrww: ah ok10:41
Haakon-2000[#ubuntu] It's10:41
TaevKuser is a KDE application for managing users and groups10:41
icerootTaev: though it was kerberos-stuff10:42
Jordan_UDiRaOL: I'm not sure what you mean by "installation process".10:42
TaevNo bazhang I came to help assist people if they had a question.10:42
ikoniaI'm not going to say this again. Taev if you suggest using kuser to set the root password again, you will be removed from the channel10:42
t0zeHello people, i'm going to buy a pc, and i wanna know which is the better graphic card for ubuntu. if ati or nvidea ubuntu grafics works better in which one ? tks10:43
Haakon-2000ikonia: Why is kuser bad for doing this?10:43
icerootHaakon-2000: enabling root is bad10:43
TaevI'm not the one that keeps bringing it up Ikonia.10:43
ikoniaHaakon-2000: setting the root password is not something that's recommended or supported10:43
icerootHaakon-2000: there is not a single reason to have a root-account10:43
DiRaOLJordan_U: i've started installing SOs on this specific new computer 3am (GMT-3), and now it's almost 7am and i haven't finished yet. rs if i need to use a live cd i don't need to go to the bios setup to change the boot or something like that10:43
Jordan_Ut0ze: You might want to consider buying Ubuntu pre-installed from companies like System76 or Dell.10:43
Taevwhats the Ubuntu support like for netbooks?10:44
Haakon-2000iceroot: That's not the issue here, the issue is: "If you're going to enable root, why not use Kuser?", not "Should I enable root?".10:44
TaevI've been thinking of getting one.10:44
ikoniaTaev: good10:44
Haakon-2000Taev: Netbooks are better than everything else, more or less.10:44
illacrww: say sudo su is similiar to sudo -i ... what's the diff?10:44
finemannhi, i am looking for a software that can manage my e-book collection (mostly in pdf and djvu). The main feature i want is downloading tags from sites like amazon.com. I've already tried out calibre, is there some other application that'll help me?10:44
illacrww: says*10:44
ikoniaillac: it's nothing like it10:44
basslinerusing x applications to manage users on a unix box is retarded. no matter if it's a kde or gnome application.10:44
TaevHaakon-2000, its because the current philosophy is that you shouldn't be able to log in as root10:44
icerootillac: sudo su is wrong, because its setting the environment not correct10:44
Taevyou should apparently use sudo10:45
rwwillac: actually, it says it's similar to 'sudo su -'10:45
illacrww: didn't see the - :/10:45
Haakon-2000Taev: Sure, but... Why is Kuser worse than sudo passwd root?10:45
TaevI can't say or I'll be banned.10:45
t0zeyeah, i would like to. but in my country there is no dell or system 7610:45
Haakon-2000Forgot about that.10:45
Taevask some one else.10:45
Haakon-2000Sorry.. :(10:45
t0zeyour experiencia... nvidea work better than ati, true?10:46
Haakon-2000t0ze: Basically: nVidia have very good proprietary drivers, and ATi is getting there.10:46
iceroott0ze: the driver from nvidia is better at the moment10:46
Taevthe ATI proprietary drivers finally worked for me in 10.0410:46
Taevthey didn't work so well in 8.0410:46
t0zenice !!  tks people10:47
Misteriot0ze: nVidia is more interested in free software than ATI10:47
wwsmurfI don't know.  I think ACLs and stuff are in the Unix standard, so a GUI tool might be appropriate somewhere in the Unix World.10:47
TaevI can finally play stuff like Billiard-GL. Before it was almost unplayable10:47
t0zeubuntu FTW !  so as Nvidea XD10:47
TaevAnyone here ever heard of "Nubuntu" ?10:47
t0zehappy week-end10:47
Jordan_Ut0ze: Have you actually checked that System76 doesn't ship to your country? It's not a well known name outside Linux enthusiasts so it may ship there even if you haven't heard of it.10:47
DiRaOLops, damm wireless reconnected...10:47
nikolamTaev, wow, what graphics card do you use and what version of proprietary ATI/AMD driver youinstalled on 10.04?10:47
TaevI have an ATI Raedon 4200, and I'm not sure which particular driver set is installed. That P.C. is currently running Windows XP I was playing Mass Effect.10:48
basslinerdid anyone manage to automate the partition manager stuff in ubuntu's install using a preseed file with pxeboot?10:48
rwwJordan_U: System76 only ships within the USA and Canada10:48
nikolamMisterio, laso Nvidia have even open/solaris drivers etc, amd/ati do not at all10:49
Jordan_Urww: Thanks.10:49
Haakon-2000Nobody use Solaris for desktops ANYWAY, so that might be the reason?10:49
nikolamTaev, i have x1250/690G chipset and since now, only 8.04 lts and till 8.10 were supported with closed driver10:49
Haakon-2000Besides, he's using Ubuntu, and should choose from the current cards that do support that.10:49
TaevIm just saying that the ATI Proprietary drivers for my ATI Raedon X1600 and 4200 HD under 8.04 never worked properly10:50
Taevthey do under 10.0410:50
illacwhy do people like system76 so much, can get better prices on laptops with better specs... I don't get it.10:50
nikolamHaakon-2000, well, I do use opensolaris as desktop, on notebook, anyway. And yes, graphics drivers are important, Past desktop use.10:50
=== MichealH_ is now known as MichealH
Haakon-2000Mind you the new 460 series from nVidia seems pretty fantastic.10:50
TaevI installed Solaris 7 a few times just for the heck of it.10:50
TaevCan't say I liked C.D.E. much.10:50
ikoniaTaev: that is offtopic here10:50
oCean_Taev: this is not really a discussion channel, as you are aware?10:51
nikolamyes Amd/ati drive did never used to work on my ubuntu during supported period. it was horrible half of the time10:51
MisterioHaakon-2000: I have GeForce 5500 FX, and works perfectly10:51
iaindaltonillac: I read your link about DGA and VMWare, and AFAIK, my system meets all three requirements for DGA support10:51
otswimhi, i have a big problem with my mandriva computer: it has been shut off with the power button, and now i don't have access to X server; when it boots, i can only type ctrl+alt+F2 to get the command line; then if i type 'startx' it says "cannot open log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log"; could please someone help me? if i type 'ls /var/log/Xorg.0.log' it says that ls cannot access to this file because there is some kind of problem in the system file10:51
TaevYeah, running any Open GL application was terrible with the default drivers.10:51
bazhangotswim, is ubuntu in that picture somewhere? or just mandriva10:51
iaindaltonotswim: never say "some kind of problem", give us what it says10:52
Jordan_UDiRaOL: If you need to be able to boot the system soon and without much work Super GRUB2 Disk may help.10:52
oCean_Taev: really, drop it10:52
Haakon-2000otswim: Basically, we're not Mandriva support, and also, it's rather difficult to give any help if you don't post the error message.10:52
Taevmaybe the file is locked otswim10:52
DiRaOLJordan_U: how does that work?!10:52
Taevor the permissions have changed10:52
bazhangotswim, #mandriva not here10:52
nikolamyeah, I think I will switch to Nvidia with new gr. card. Haakon-200010:53
otswimok going there; i didn't post the exact error message because it's not in english10:53
Taevtry cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log10:53
Taevsee if it will read it10:53
Haakon-2000otswim: Good luck, and if the message isn't in English, I suggest translating it and making a note that it is translated.10:53
Jordan_UDiRaOL: It's GRUB2 on a CD and auto detects OS's / loads your current grub.cfg. If nothing else it's usefull because you can debug things with the full shell rather than being stuck at rescue shell.10:53
stanley_robertsohi all10:54
Haakon-2000Jordan_U: BASH or CSH?10:54
Taevwhere do you get Super GRUB2 Disk?10:54
otswimTaev: i get "Failure access to the NFS file" (translated)10:54
Jordan_UTaev: http://prdownload.berlios.de/supergrub/super_grub_disk_hybrid-1.98s1.iso10:55
Haakon-2000Taev: http://www.supergrubdisk.org/index.php?pid=510:55
DiRaOLJordan_U: it would be much diferrent from booting with the liveCD? (hum... i can use a PenDrive for that Super GRUB.....)10:55
TaevIs that folder on the local machine or on a NFS server?10:55
Taevthank you.10:55
bazhangotswim, this is mandriva?10:55
otswimbazhang: yes i'm getting help of #mandriva as well10:55
Jordan_UHaakon-2000: It's grub's own shell, which is powerfull but nowhere near bash or csh. Though a full lua shell is also available.10:56
otswimTaev: it should be local10:56
iceroototswim: this is ubuntu-support10:56
Taevwell then why would he be getting a NFS error?10:56
bazhangotswim, keep it in there please it has nothing to with Ubuntu10:56
Haakon-2000Jordan_U: Oh, I thought you suddenly had Grub 2 running a full BASH shell, which would have been seven shades of fantastic.10:56
otswimTaev: don't know10:56
Taevwell thats why I asked him to clarify.10:56
stanley_robertsohey all .. what is this super grub2 disk ?10:56
niohello all10:56
Haakon-2000Then again, GRUB would suddenly emerge as a new kernel, and then you would finally have a full GNU system.10:57

icerootTaev: april 2011 for desktop11:04
icerootTaev: april 2013 for server11:04
TaevSo whats the safest way to upgrade? I've tried updating through Adept before on test systems but it hosed it.11:05
Jordan_UDiRaOL: I just realized, since "ls" in the grub shell only listed one hard drive that means that your BIOS can't read one of the drives that makes up the array. With RAID0 that's fatal.11:05
RossTaylordoes anyone know if it's possible to get connected to the internet without having an ISP provider11:05

RossTayloregyparadox: i understand but i just thought some smart people here might know and i don't know where else to ask11:06
Jordan_URossTaylor: ISP stands for Internet Service Provider, so while the provider may be starbucks wifi one is required by definition to connect to the internet.11:06
erUSULRossTaylor: no; one way or the other you are using an ISP ( even if it is one you did not have a contract with like when using an open wifi network or some such )11:06
TaevISP stands for Internet Service Provider, hence they Provide your Internet Service11:06
icqn what gnome application is launched then alt-f2 is pressed?11:07
RossTaylorerusul : that's what i thought11:07
Taevif you have a Wifi card you could piggyback on some ones signal if they allow you to.11:07

Jordan_UDiRaOL: A side effect of raid0 striping is that one disk will have the sector containing the partition table, so it will look like the final array with fdisk -l and other tools only looking at the partitions, while the other drive will seem unformated or broken to tools that don't understand raid.11:08
Taevwell as I said RossTaylor if you have a Wifi Nic you could log on using some one elses Wireless signal IF they give you permission, i.e. the password.11:08

TaevNow that I think of it. Is there a way I can set Ubuntu up to run a few simple commands upon boot so I don't have to manually enter them everytime I have to reboot.11:15

Sia-Taev, /etc/rc.local to let apps start with the system start11:19
Jordan_UDiRaOL: Usually with software raid, especially if you want to boot from it, you should have each drive partitioned and make an array out of those partitions rather than creating an array out of the drives then partitioning the array.11:19

icerootDiRaOL: think about that grub is not running on the raid11:19
TaevYes I get that. What I'm asking is do I just add "tightvncserver -basehttpport 8083 :1" to the file? or do I need to do anything special like flags or anything11:19
ikoniaTaev: best to use absoulte paths11:19
oCean_nio: yeah, might take a little effort to get used to launchpad..11:20
erUSULJordan_U: well he is using fakeraid if win7 can use it too ( 4 drives raid 0 fakeraid o.0!!!  )11:20
Jordan_UTaev: No flags needed, rc.local is the last script run at boot, and is a normal shell script.11:20
Taevso just add /usr/bin/tightvncserver -basehttpport 8083 :1 to /etc/rc.local ? thats it11:20
TaevOk. Thanks11:20
Sia-Taev, /etc/init.d/mysql stop for example11:20
erUSULTaev: also; those tightvncserver -basehttpport 8083 :1 need the x window system to have started ? the user session ?11:20
Taevsaves me the trouble of executing everything manually, especially my eggdrop bot say if my PC crashes or something.11:21
oCean_nio: when the suggested deb moves to -backports repos, I expect an i386 also. But it's not there yet.11:21
DiRaOLerUSUL: That's what i tought too, if it worked on windows, why not ubuntu also?! rs11:21
Jordan_UerUSUL: He said he was using software raid when I asked, but I think you're right.11:21
MaRk-I!pm | RossTaylor11:22
ubottuRossTaylor: Please ask your questions in the channel so that other people can help you, benefit from your questions and answers, and ensure that you're not getting bad advice. Please note that some people find it rude to be sent a PM without being asked for permission to do so first.11:22
DiRaOLiceroot: in theory my grub is installed on the first partition of the raid, in a ext2 partition.  but something went wrong11:22
Jordan_UDiRaOL: Are you doing any raid setup in your BIOS? Did your BIOS/mobo claim to support RAID?11:23
Destructohey hey all. ive read and read, and read . my dell mini keeps giving me 'disk is being used outside design parameters'  is there a way to fix this or is it simply a bug ..11:23
Taevcan I add commands I need executed as root to /etc/rc.local ?11:23
ikoniaTaev: yup11:23
icerootDiRaOL: its a bug11:23
icerootDestructo: its a bug11:23
Jordan_UDestructo: Just a stab in the dark but it may be talking about alignment issues.11:23
DiRaOLJordan_U: Yeap, that's the way i'm doing. On the BIOS Setup i've marked "RAID" to my sata HDs and then entered on the RAID Setup of the BIOS to set the RAID11:24
Taevdo I have to do anything special for a command that has to be run as root? I want my FTP Server to start up automatically with my specific flags11:24
icerootDestructo: normally coming up with ssd drives and wakeup from standby11:24
dd__anybody know why I wouldn't be able to get a tty? ctl-alt-fkey does not work and neither dose chvt11:24
niooCean there is no search tab please give me some direction how i can request if not requested yet11:24
Jordan_UDiRaOL: For future reference that's reffered to as "Fake RAID"11:24
DiRaOLJordan_U: Ok, sorry..11:24
erUSULDiRaOL: (bios) fakeraids are designed for windows users ... haqve you followed the instructions here ? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto11:25
Jordan_UDiRaOL: Real software RAID is much easier to deal with, and is superior in almost all ways except windows support.11:25
cyrylmhi, what is the best method for executing a privileged command while being logged as a user without administrative privileges (granted that my account has such privileges)?11:25
Taevdoes /etc/rc.local just run everything as root?11:25
erUSULDiRaOL: looks like you have to make a few tricks to make the installer install grub2 correctly ( see 9.10 method )11:25
erUSULTaev: yes11:25
ikoniaTaev: it's involved by root11:25
ikonia"invoked" sorry11:26
Taevah, i don't know if I want my eggdrop bot invoked by root11:26
imaginativeonewhen I try to access my Downloads folder, the File Windows just shuts down.  How do I fix that?11:26
Taevfor security reasons11:26
ikoniaTaev: then you specify that not to be run as root11:26
Taevhow do i specify that?11:26
ikoniasu -c for example11:26
ikoniaor use sudo11:26
Taevso add "su -c | /home/whatever/eggdrop/eggdrop -n eggdrop.conf ?11:27
ikonianot |11:27
Taevput the su -c on the line above the command to follow?11:27
ikoniaTaev: no, su -c $user /home/eggdrop/blah11:28
Destructoiceroot its on all the time. after reboot, start-up. but the thing is also is i cant update/upgrade, because it says disk is full11:28
Taevreplace $user with $djs ?11:28
ikoniaTaev: with the username, it's explained in the man page11:28
icerootDestructo: and is the disc full? (df -h will tell you)11:28
Jordan_Uikonia: Doesn't the username need to come before the -c ?11:28
Kwpolskahow can I make my ubuntu looking upstream?11:28
ikoniaJordan_U: maybem thats why I said check the man page11:29
icerootKwpolska: what?11:29
DiRaOLerUSUL: I haven't seen that page, i'll try to reinstall my ubuntu. Come back in some minutes11:29
ikoniaKwpolska: what do you mean ? (I asked you before)11:29
Stranger-2Hello erUSUL thnx for last dayś great tip about the driver unbinding.11:30
Kwpolskaikonia: restore all look/panels/etc to the panels from upstream gnome11:30
erUSULStranger-2: no problem; worked?11:30
Stranger-2But now I am facing a new problem,11:30
ikoniaKwpolska: upstream gnome ???11:30
ikoniaKwpolska: you'd need to update the software (the whole of gnome) to the latest version of gnome11:31
WaleHi (:11:31
Stranger-2erUSUL, yeah. It works very well. The device for which I am doing this is "HP t100 thin client"11:31
Kwpolskaikonia: you retard11:31
Destructoiceroot is says 97% .. i dont remember having filled this up.i giues the initial install took it all. only 121 left11:32
erUSULStranger-2: what is the new problem ?11:32
icerootDestructo: 97% what? used or free? and which? / ?11:32
Stranger-2when I unmapped the device, the mouse and keyboard attached to this device is get replicated on those devices which are connected, just after device in question11:32
Destructoiceroot sorry 97% used11:33
erUSULDestructo: maybe somthing is spamming the logs ? do « sudo apt-get clean » then check /var/log/ size « sudo su -hs /var/log/ »11:33
icerootDestructo: sudo apt-get autoremove && sudo apt-get clean    is freeing some space normally11:33
icerootDestructo: also have a look with sudo du -sh on /11:34
erUSULStranger-2: sorry; did not fully undertood? when you unbind the device the mouse an keyboard get "reallocated" to another one ?11:34
rainbow2i have a harddisk error message that is spamming the logs extremely frequently. how can i stop the messages with a command? this slows down everything :(11:35
icerootrainbow2: maybe the better solution is to repair the problem or buy a new harddrive instead of disabling logging11:35
rainbow2i wonder what is the cause - the sender of the messages? i dont use the drive. dont access it.11:36
rainbow2iceroot: the drive is fine. ata crashes sometimes.11:36
icerootrainbow2: i dont know, i have not seen the logs11:36
Stranger-2erUSUL, Yes. mouse and keyboard get replicated.11:36
amanthakurcan anyone tell how much time it takes to compile a kernel?? i am going to compile it right now?????11:37
icerootamanthakur: depening on the hardware11:37
ifanchohow can i check the drive for errors while mounted ?11:37
ikoniaamanthakur: custom kernels are not supported here11:37
erUSULamanthakur: depends on you machine and in the config you use11:37
dsh1911can someone please explain to me how to compile a kernel?11:37
ikoniaifancho: you don't11:37
TaevI added 3 commands to /etc/rc.local , of which tightvnc and eggdrop failed completely, pure-ftpd did start but it ignored my flags to tell it to start on port 808211:37
erUSUL!kernel | dsh191111:37
ubottudsh1911: The core of the Ubuntu Operating System is the Linux kernel: see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel - You shouldn't have to compile your own, but if you're convinced you do, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile - See also: /msg ubottu stages11:37

Destructowhen i try to update says diskisfull.. so it may actually be full11:38
erUSULTaev: pur-ftp should have its own init script in /etc/init.d/ or use inetd11:38
dsh1911ubottu - thanks buddy11:38
icerootDestructo: and sudo apt-get clean   is cleaning the cahce. every package you installed is saved as deb in /var/cache/apt/11:38
Taevok, then why did tightvnc and eggdrop fail to start completely?11:38
amanthakuriceroot, erUSUL, i am having a core 2 duo 2.93 ghz processor with 1 gb of RAM11:38

amanthakuriceroot, erUSUL, i just wanted a approximate time11:39
bloopletechAnd I'm having trouble getting it to work11:39
Stranger-2erUSUL, Suppose, I have 3 devices ( each having mouse and keyboard ). When I unbind and then again bind the device 2, mouse and keyboard of device 2 do not work, but mouse and keyboard of device 3 works on device 2 as well. ( Like replica )11:39
erUSULamanthakur: dun between 15-20 min ( disk speed is a factor) if you use the cores ( make -j5 or -j6 )11:39

amanthakurerUSUL, ok buddy thanks for the info11:41
rainbow2how can i locate which process is trying to access a raw drive which is not mounted ?11:41
masteroffireI also can't switch the drivers because there is no xorg.conf present11:41
Stranger-2erUSUL, ok. no prob. thnx11:41
bloopletechFirestarter was originally complaining that wlan0 wasn't active, so I tried creating a (ad-hoc) wireless connection ... then it was saying it couldn't start because of an unknown error11:41
bloopletechmasteroffire, have you checked the X wiki to make sure the open source drivers support your card?11:41
erUSULifancho: see the e2fsck man page... i think that passing -cc toi it will check for badblocks ... but double check docs to not loose data11:41
masteroffirethe card is supported by the radeonhd drivers11:42

When I select it on GRUB (It's installed along side Win7, which I'm currently on), it gets to the login screen then freeze cycles and the startup jingle is played over and over. The weird part is, that I've actually been able to login once, where it just didn't do it, which makes me extremely confused. Anyone experience anything similar?12:26
