bigredradioSince the most recent update my wireless drops frequently. I ran "watch iwconfig" and noticed that the IEEE and the Frequency kept changing. Anyone seen this?03:24
bigredradioIEEE 802.11a then goes to IEEE 802.11abg03:24
bigredradioLike it can't make up it's mind.03:25
pleia2bigredradio: I can't say for sure, but sounds like a driver issue, do you know what wifi card you have?03:31
bigredradioLooking it up now03:31
bigredradiopleia2, NetXtreme BCM573203:32
pleia2I don't actually know a ton about wifi (thankfully my cards "just work") but hopefully once you have that info either someone else will know or it'll give you some info to search ubuntuforums.org with03:32
pleia2ah, broadcom03:32
bigredradioI have the proprietary driver loaded.03:32
* pleia2 nods03:32
bigredradioWorked fine in the past.03:32
bigredradio(Better Question) I 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?04:23

Niglophow do i burn DVD files(audio and video ts) to disc, (NO NOT WRITE THEM, BURN..)13:24
ikoniaNiglop: you where told in #ubuntu - don't start in here too13:24
ikoniaNiglop: use the DVD software to burn as data13:24
Niglopoh my god.. i already told you brasero doesnt burn video ts files13:25
Niglopit burns iso13:25
ikoniait will burn video fles13:25
NiglopOK let me check shall i13:25
ikoniagnome discussion is not in this channel13:25
NiglopOH ..  what do you know13:25
Niglopit doesnt let me13:26
Niglopum im actually using xubuntu13:26
Niglopwho said anything about gnome?13:26
ikoniait does13:27
ikoniaI'm doing it now13:27
NiglopOH REALLY..13:27
Niglopcare to walk me through it13:27
ikonia"no I don't care to walk you through it"13:27
ikoniait's as simple as dragging the folders you want to burn into the burn area and clicking burn13:28
Niglopthanks for the support13:28
Niglopthere is no burn area on my screen.13:28
ikoniaplease post a screen shot13:28
ikoniaclick on the "create a project"13:29
ikoniaselect the type of project you want to use13:30
Niglopthere is no "create a project"..?13:30
ikoniayes there is - it lists the types of projects you can create under the heading "create a new project"13:31
Niglopyes you didnt tell me which one to click13:31
ikoniawhich ever one you want to use13:31
Niglopi want to burn video ts files13:31
Niglopno button for that..13:31
ikoniayes, but when someone in #ubuntu tried to explain the differnce between burning as data files and burning for use in a DVD player you abused them13:32
Niglopi already knew the difference13:32
ikoniahowever, using common sense look at the video project, it actually says "create a video DVD"13:32
Niglopand no i abused you for pointing out the obvious13:32
ikoniain that case you'll know how to do it13:33
Niglopi dont want to create a DVD i want to BURN one13:33
ikoniayou need to create a DVD to burn one13:33
ikoniayou're creating a new DVD project made out of files you already have13:33
ikoniayes, so you create a new DVD out of the files you have13:33
ikoniaso you "create a video DVD"13:34
Niglopi totally disagree, but im going to do what you say JUST INCASE i am wrong13:34
Niglopok now what13:34
ikoniaI'm not wasting any more time with you and your attitude13:34
ikoniabest of luck13:34
Niglopi just told you im going to do what you say and then you have a mood swing..13:35
Niglopim glad to see the linux community excelling13:35
NiglopSO .. can anybody else help13:36
well_laid_lawnyou are kidding...13:37
Niglopare you sure of that..?13:37
_Techie_okay lets stop this now13:37
* gnomefreak doesnt see any problem or wrong on ikonia part to the info he gave you13:37
_Techie_Niglop, whats the DVD?13:37
Niglopare you asking me the name of the movie?13:38
_Techie_Niglop, answer the damn question13:38
Niglophence me asking  a question in return13:38
gnomefreakmore than likely it has write protection on it13:38
_Techie_Niglop, what is the name of the movie you are copying13:38
_Techie_Niglop, well lemme see, last time i check we dont support illegal activities... that includes piracy13:39
_Techie_it is also against freenode terms13:39
Niglopwho said it was the one from the cinema?13:39
_Techie_so please take your buiseness  elsewhere13:39
Niglopmy and my little brother created a play called avatar13:39
gnomefreakwe dont13:39
gnomefreakNiglop: than you should have a local copy of it and it will burn without issue13:40
Niglopi do have a local copy13:40
gnomefreakNiglop: i suggest taking this to a different IRC server13:40
Niglopyous keep pointing out WHAT i SHOULD do.. but not actually telling me how to do it13:40
gnomefreakNiglop: stop with the caps. and everyone has told you how to do it but you fail to agree or listen13:40
well_laid_lawnif it is a .ts then you need to make a .iso out of it13:41
Niglopim obviously pissed off13:41
well_laid_lawnlike ikonia was trying to get you to do13:41
Niglopnobody has told me how to do it13:41
ikoniaNiglop: create DVD project, drag the files in click burn - all done13:41
Niglopthey are just saying "burn it13:41
ikoniaNiglop: end of discussion13:41
gnomefreakNiglop: than i suggest leavving and coming back when you calm down13:41
Niglopclicking burn creates an iso13:41
Niglopi dont want to create an iso13:41
Niglopi want to burn video ts files13:41
ikoniaNiglop: look at the output file13:41
NiglopIM looking13:41
ikoniayou want your output to be TS files13:42
ikoniayou've not got the ts_audio files13:42
ikoniais that what you are saying13:42
ikoniayou want to make them13:42
Niglopno.. i already have them13:42
ikoniayou want to create the video_ts and audio files,13:42
knomeikonia, no, he has .ts files he wants to burn to a dvd.13:42
ikoniaso create DVD project, drag to area, set output to DVD or iso file, click burn13:42
Niglopwhen dragging it in: "Avatar" is not suitable for audio or video media.13:42
ikoniaNiglop: because it's copy projected13:43
Niglopdefine copy projected13:43
ikoniaor is this the one your brother made ?13:43
knomeNiglop, protected13:43
NiglopYEAH its the one my brother made13:43
ikoniaNiglop: movies you buy have protection on to stop them being copied13:43
ikoniaNiglop: you have to bypass it13:43
ikoniaNiglop: however if your brother made this movie then he'll know the copy protection he put on it and you can ask him to remove it13:44
gnomefreakNiglop: it can not be burtned legally so it is the movie not your project. now please leave or stop this topic13:44
Niglophe put it on accidently, he just told me he clicked a random option13:44
Niglophe wants to know how to remove it13:44
ikoniaNiglop: ask him to remake the DVD without it13:44
gnomefreakdelete it like any other file/folder13:44
ikoniaNiglop: removing copy protection is illegal and we will not discuss it here13:44
Niglophe said it took 9 hours to render on our slow intel celeron computer13:44
Niglophe said he doesnt want to wait any longer13:45
ikoniaNiglop: that's not our problem, he should be more careful13:45
Niglophe should13:45
knomeNiglop, we are not going to give you instructions how to remove a copy protection.13:45
gnomefreakNiglop: now stop!13:45
ikoniaI guess we are done here13:45
ikoniaNiglop: you've got the info, good luck13:45
gnomefreakwe are13:45
Niglopstop acting like the riaa is sitting in the chan spectating13:45
ikoniaNiglop: we are not, it's your brothers movie, he can remove the protection13:45
ikoniasopt ?13:45
_Techie_youll have to explain that for me aswell13:46
gnomefreakstop is correct13:47
knome...aaand he scores 10 points!13:47
ikoniahed get a lot more help if he was honest13:47
knomeor actually trying to follow the instructions..13:48
gnomefreakits the non-legal aspect13:48
dahaicikonia: tbh, I am pretty surprised you tried to help him with his attitude,14:01
ikoniait's all sorted now14:02

Besogonprofus2, may be you could log in in safe mode19:45
Besogonand make new user19:45
profus2how could that be done?19:46
Sysiif you can get to root shell in failsafe mode you can change password19:46
Besogonreboot and chose "safe mode" then you should use useradd command19:46
Sysihold shift while/before boot19:47
profus2i have "dual boot" installation19:51
profus2so first I see grub screen, telling me linux generic or generic19:52
profus2and of cours the old xp19:53
profus2default is the first one19:53
profus2when choosing the first one an holding SHIFT there is no change in login screen as compared to before19:53
Sysishift is for getting menu, that's not visible by default if you don't have dualboot19:55
profus2so what should I do: as a first time linuxer I have no clue20:00
profus2what do you mean: "if you can get to root shell in failsaife mode, you can change passowrd"?20:00
profus2password was functional before software update20:00
profus2very strang20:01
profus2is this a known problem?20:01
Sysiyou don't have any failsafe option in boot menu?20:02
Besogonmay be PAM sistem broke. But i's very strange..20:03
BesogonStop. Which kernel did you use when update?20:03
profus2there is something calle recovery mode20:04
profus2@besogon: i have no clue20:04
BesogonDid you tried to boot up from either kernels you have?20:04
profus2I started the default, so I think
profus2I tried both kernels20:05
profus2no difference in behaviour20:05
BesogonSo. Have you botted in safe mode (single user)?20:06
BesogonI yes. Go to shell20:07
profus2I tried "failsafe mode" but there is no difference - can not log in20:07
profus2arrived at shell20:09
profus2how should I proceed20:09
BesogonEven in shell you can't assecc, can you?20:10
Sysiis it $ or #-shell?20:10
profus2the second20:10
Besogoncommand line in safe mode I meant20:10
profus2i went to recovery mode and the to rootshell20:11
profus2looks like this, without this funny sign20:11
BesogonLets try to modify your user20:12
profus2i can not reproduce20:12
profus2could you help me with the command=?20:13
profus2as far as I understood, the user at installation is admin?20:13
Besogonpasswd login20:13
profus2is this the command20:13
BesogonMay be better passwd -u loginname20:14
BesogonWith it you may rewrite your password rewrite20:15
profus2it says: password expiry information changed20:15
BesogonOK reboot and login20:15
profus2no clue, what this means20:15
profus2i'll try20:15

BesogonPress Ctrl+F120:17
Besogonthen try to log in20:18
Besogonwith your user20:18
BesogonDon't reboot.20:18
Sysiyou can do same as before but type 'passwd <yourusername>'20:18
BesogonBut at this time he have to write current password20:19
profus2Ctrl+F1 does not change anything20:19
Sysictrl alt f120:19
profus2at rootshell I type in "password -u username20:20
Besogonprofus2, listen. can you connect to your user from the command line bing not in safe mode?20:21
profus2ok, logged in at shell, how to proceed20:21
profus2@besogon: ctrl alt f1 brought me to the shell, there i logged in20:22
profus2what to do now?20:22
profus2looks like the graphical user interface has a problem - right?20:22
BesogonOne thing I suggest you. If you are connected to internet you can update agai. May be It will change the situation20:23
profus2now, i am at the shell20:23
Besogonyes. and it's strange20:23
profus2how to go back to a more graphical environment20:24
profus2or should I do the update via shell and if so how?20:24
Besogonyes. via shell20:24
profus2same problem20:24
profus2if I go back to shell20:25
profus2no login20:25
BesogonFirstly. how do you connect to internet? Do you use ethernet?20:25
profus2yes, via router20:25
profus2we are talking about notebook which is connected to the router20:25
profus2through the router20:26
Besogontype ifconfig20:26
BesogonConnect to your router via a wire. It will be easyer20:26
profus2ok, what would you like to check20:26
profus2its connected via cable, not WLAN20:27
profus2i can see its ip-adress20:27
profus2in the local "network"20:27
Besogonyou see "eth0" interface, don't you?20:28
BesogonSo try "sudo apt-get update"20:29
Besogonthen "sudo apt-get upgrade"20:30
BesogonWhat's going on?20:31
profus2_i was kicked out of the chat20:31

zerothiscan firefox's resource use be reduced?20:36
BesogonI'm using old system now20:37
Besogonzerothis, but. It's don't give you real advantage20:38
Sysizerothis: install adblock-plugin20:38
Besogonlook for it on site Aurora OS20:38
Sysiif you need light browser, midori has adblock too, chromium is light too20:39
profus2@Besogon: it asked me for password, which was not accepted20:39
profus2so i logged out20:39
Sysiwebsites just aren't lightweight anymore20:39
profus2now, i can't log in anymore20:39
Besogonprofus2, Sysi said you what to do20:39
zerothisalready have adblock and noscript. its still straining my 128MB Pentium dinosaur20:39
Besogonzerothis, to get really fast FF Firefox should be build using PGO20:40
BesogonLike it's done for Windows20:40
Sysifirefox can't be fast on 128MB, propably anything can't20:41
Besogonzerothis, https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Building_with_Profile-Guided_Optimization20:41
BesogonI very idle person and don't programmer at all and I accostumed to my slower FF20:42
Besogonwhy don't they build FF with PGO for all Linux-users I don't know. Of cource it would be not so stable but much faster20:44
SysiFF is fast on my dual core and ssd :P20:45
Sysiand fast enough on my netbook20:46
BesogonMay be you have only one such netbook as for my netbook it's false. My netbook's freezing for half a minute after start FF20:47
Sysiit also works pretty well on my 70120:48
zerothissysi, lots of browsers are fast on this system, but they are non-graphical OR do not function with gmail20:48
profus2last question: how can I remove xubuntu from my system?20:52
Besogonprofus2, Do you want remove only xubuntu -desktop or delete linux itself?20:55
profus2with no logon to the system, looks like the whole thing is pretty worthless20:56
BesogonDon't haste. be patient. To too hate it at first few mounth but that was 2 years ago20:56
profus2login problem should be a kernel issue, so other desktop should be no solution20:57
BesogonGo sleep and reinstall it tomorrow. But I suggest you ,as you are a novice, use to gnome or KDE environtment20:57
profus2how do I reinstall ----> boot from CD and just overwrite it?20:58
profus2do you know how much time I wasted with this baby?20:58
Besogonyes. Just like you do it with windows20:58
Sysiidk, i've wasted like 2 years20:59
Sysibut i loved it from the first boot, i still hate xp so much..21:01
Besogonbocouse windows is too different. And it requires time to accustom to philosofy and possibility of linux21:02
BesogonSysi, Didn't you try W7?21:02
Sysiyeah, it's okay21:02
Sysibut i don't have reason to use something less nice and paymentfull or warez21:03
profus2I am used to Windows more then a decade, so it seems pretty easy to me21:03
Besogonbut I didn't. I'm not interested. (there is not nesessity for that)21:03
BesogonWin7 costs too much for me either21:04
profus2interestingly, the most promising feature of linux (one-click installation of all programms) killed my system21:05
BesogonIt never happened for me. But yes. sometime it happends21:06
Besogonwith somebody21:06
Sysii use command line always21:07
ridin\ /21:07
Sysiyum is best way to install software IMO, fedora just don't like my hardware very much21:08
BesogonSysi, What do you think about Suse?21:10
Sysinot good for xfce-user21:11
Sysizypper and yast are pretty nice21:11
Sysii can use kde, but it takes hours to configure21:12
profus2@sysi & Besongon: you wouldn't believe it - i did a replay of the hints you gave me and succeeded ---- yeah21:32
profus2one question: how can I see data on the ntfs partion from within xubuntu?21:33
Sysibtw, don't put @ in front of lines if you want to hilight, it propably don't hilight on many users21:33
ubottumount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount21:34
