macomaleldraconis: and why cant you use a usb thumb drive?00:15
maleldraconisMaco: it's a netbook, so I can't remove the hard drive.  and it's not reading from USB sticks before OS boot either...00:16
maleldraconisthis bios is a pain00:16
corpsemaleldraconis: look up info on doing a network install00:16
wiesshundmaleldraconis,  youve got the ISO?00:17
Jordan_Umaleldraconis: I've never heard of a netbook that can't boot from USB, are you sure you setup the flash drive properly?00:17
macomaleldraconis: netbooks mean you cant remove the hard drive?00:17
macomaleldraconis: that one's news to me. also, plenty of eeepc users have installed ubuntu, so im sure the bios is capable of speaking to thumb drives00:17
maleldraconiswell, it's not working with the thumb drive I have00:17
maleldraconisyou see why I'm frustrated with this process00:18
Jordan_Umaleldraconis: Does that thumb drive work with another computer?00:18
wiesshundmaleldraconis, do you have the ISO image of the live CD?00:18
uzu-cati have ubuntu installed and i need to install windows00:18
maleldraconisyes, I have the ISO00:18
uzu-cathow can i do it?00:18
Jordan_Uuzu-cat: Boot the windows install CD and install windows. For help installing windows join ##windows.00:18
wiesshundmaleldraconis,  you could boot the iso in windows using qemu, or you could use the WUBI installer00:18
maleldraconisJordan_U: not for booting00:18
uzu-cati'm telling this 'cause i know that when you install windows it uses to delete the linux launcher00:18
macomaleldraconis: how did you put it on the thumb drive? did you just copy the iso there or did you use unetbootin?00:19
macouzu-cat: install with the windows cd, then use the ubuntu cd to reinstall grub00:19
Jordan_Umaleldraconis: Then why did you expect it to boot your netbook?00:19
wiesshunduzu-cat,  install windows on its own partition, then if need be use the linux live CD to reinstall grub, though i didnt need to00:19

nimbiotics_Hello everyone. On ubuntu 9.10, is there a graphical tool that would allow me to compare 2 text files side by side?00:20

wiesshundmaleldraconis,  yes that is how the wubi install works, the only way to use the whole partiton is to boot the live image with no windows active00:20

ubottubarfster: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade00:21
uzu-cati heard about a program called Gparted, how can it helps me?00:21
wiesshundmaleldraconis,  you said your thumb drive sucks, do you happen to have an mp3 player that works also as a flash drive?00:21
barfsterI am doing an upgrade now00:21
ilovefairuzuzu-cat: to repartition your hard disk00:21
maleldraconisthat's what I'm using as my flash drive, wiess00:21
barfsterBut only to 8.04 for now00:21
maleldraconisthat's probably the problem00:22
Jordan_Uuzu-cat: If you don't already have a partition free to install windows into, gparted can help you resize Ubuntu to make space. If you already have a partition set out for windows then you don't need gparted.00:22
maleldraconisbut I have some options to try I guess, so I'll check those out and get back to you guys on how it worked or if..00:22
macomaleldraconis: ah yeah, mp3 players dont tend to go into USB Mass Storage mode until the OS starts talking to them00:22

Jordan_Ugruberror: Is the drive the BIOS is currently booted from also sata?00:24
gruberrorJordan_U: yes, all my drives are sata00:25
wiesshundgruberror,  if the bios doesnt acknowledge the HDD, it is a hardware issue of some sort, linux can many times see hardware that the bios is spazzing on. doesnt mean all is well though00:25

macomaleldraconis: its just in a file inside the windows filesystem. a very big file00:26

linux_opIs there anyway that I can make my external usb hardrive bootable with ubuntu FROM Windows 7?.01:02
linux_opI tried a bunch of live tools but none worked, they all say autorun.inf problem01:02
lfitzhi, i was trying to write a udev rule (last thing i did) and now my touchpad no longer works, the udev rule was for the mouse however, not touchpad01:03
icemakerhave no idea on linux but need to install an usb wireless card tp-link wn422g v2 can any1 guide me through??? plz01:03
noisewaterphdI've got a mac formatted USB hard drive connected, it can read but not write, why?01:03
lfitzthere is a power button for the touchpad and it does not light up anymore01:03
mgolischlfitz: thats basicaly the same thing01:03
lfitzmgolisch: ?01:03
wiesshundicemaker,  is that card supported on linux?01:04
mgolischhow about removing that rule? or fixing it?01:04
Jordan_Unoisewaterphd: Linux doesn't support writing to hfsplus unless journaling is disabled.01:04
zenergiAny suggestions how I can troubleshoot why monit wont' start at bootup or respond to /etc/init.d/monit start or /sbin/service monit start?01:04
wiesshundicemaker,  if not you will have to see if its supported by ndiswrapper01:04
lfitzmgolisch: i removed the rules and rebooted, nothing happened01:04
Jordan_Unoisewaterphd: Hfsplus is the filesystem used by OSX..01:04
mgolischlfitz: what did that rule look like?01:05
noisewaterphdthat isn't cool01:05
Jordan_Unoisewaterphd: You're welcome.01:05
ilovefairuzhall:  basically there are conflicting reports on whether it suppots ap mode or not, the chip is a ralink, you could try to setup an ap manually using hostapd, some reported success with recent kernels01:05
hallilovefairuz could you point me in a direction to where i can read on about that hostapd ?01:06

j800rhey guys, i have a question. as i've now migrated to Linux full-time, permanently, i have a 1tb hard drive formatted to NTFS that I use to store my files on. if i format this drive to ext4 (I know i'll lose all files on it) will Ubuntu automatically recognise it for file storage even if i have Ubuntu installed on a different drive?01:07
icemakerwiesshund: it's suported by ndswrapper this is what i found on google but i cant realy understand it and it's giving me an error as is http://dinthsblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/i-was-fighting-to-run-tp-link-wn422g-v2.html01:08
JoeMaverickSettwhy are some of the packages kept back instead of being installed?01:08
cablopthe bad thing is sindegra is not here... he can test his settings and i think that vesa of a netbook will support the resolution he wanted01:08
ilovefairuzhall:  one moment, pasting stuff for toy01:08
mgolischlfitz: it probably has nothing to do with that rule then, i guess, some laptops have function keys to disable the touchpad, maybe you accidentaly pressed that button01:08
j800rJoeMaverickSett, are you referring to the kernel images?01:08
JoeMaverickSettj800r, yes.01:09
j800ri think they may have found bugs in it01:09
cablophow can i chanmge the animation at startup?01:09
j800ryou can still install them if you allow proposed updates, but they obviously held them back to work on them01:09
cablopalso, i want to change the login screen01:09
wiesshundicemaker,  1st you need to get the driver files for it for win2k/winXP01:10
JoeMaverickSetti tried dist-upgrade, but they are still being held back01:10
ridinany help on http://imagebin.ca/view/cHq684D.html01:10
wiesshundicemaker,  then you can use the ndiswrapper gui, or command line , to have it load them01:10
j800rJoeMaverickSett, i told you why they're being held back, if you seriously want them regardless, you're gonna have to allow proposed updates01:10
UberN00bhow can i run exe files ?01:10
JoeMaverickSettj800r, oh! ok.01:11
j800rJoeMaverickSett, just go to system, admin, software sources, then select the updates tab. you'll find the option there01:11
icemakerwiesshund: ok i`ll try it and come back01:11
JoeMaverickSettj800r, thank you.01:11
j800ralthough personally i'd recommend against it. i updates the kernel and kinda regret it01:11
glicki FINALLY got my family Mom and brothers using Ubuntu as their main PC in the living room01:12
JoeMaverickSettj800r, ok. ;) i just want to try.01:12
j800rso is anyone able to help me regarding my hard drive issue?01:12
bastid_raZorj800r: you'll need to add an entry to /etc/fstab for the drive to be mounted automatically.01:12
trismJoeMaverickSett: you don't need to add proposed, if you don't see the updates now, they should be there soon (I can see them finally)01:12
=== crow is now known as Guest58184
j800rahh, ok01:12
glickwhat a relief, not having to fix their stupid windows problems all the time, and slowdowns from all the viruses and trojans my mom would invariably download01:13
glicknow i actually trust it to back up my important data01:13
glickand my mom is loving it01:13
UberN00bhey guys, how can i run a exe file ?01:13
j800rbastid_raZor, if i reinstalled ubuntu after formatting the storage drive to ext4, would i be able to install ubuntu to my main hd, and then set my home partition to be on my storage drive?01:13
glickshe thinks its much better and simpler then windows01:13
glickUberN00b, try Wine01:14
trojan_spikelol @ glick01:14
glickUberN00b, linux doesnt natively run windows .exe files01:14
bastid_raZorj800r: yes, but if you're reinstalling just to move your /home to a different partition yo udon't have to.01:14
UberN00bglick, the problem is that its an add in to office 200701:14
wiesshundicemaker,  http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Main_Page01:14
cablopwhat is the name of the thing that makes the startup animation in ubuntu?01:15
UberN00bglick, im trying to run the SaveAsPDF.exe and wine cant touch it01:15
trojan_spikeUberN00b, have u got office 07 installed??01:15
glickUberN00b, FTW?! you dont need that in linux01:15
theholderi am using ubuntu server 9.10 32bit and its refusing to find some headers01:15
j800rwell, it would be for that purpose, but i haven't finished setting my ubuntu system up yet so it wouldn't be a HUGE deal to reinstall and i'm sure it'd be easier to set the directory that way01:15
glickopen office can do all that and more by default01:15
UberN00btrojan_spike of course :D01:15
glicklol SaveAsPDF is an add on01:16
ilovefairuzhall: this needs to be in /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf http://paste.ubuntu.com/468227/01:16
glickis SaveWithoutManglingYourData.exe an extra add on as well?01:16
trojan_spikeand i just wont let u save it as a pdf??01:16
wiesshundUberN00b,  why are you using msoffice under linux?01:16
UberN00bglick, yeah but it appears that there is some discrepancy between the formating of ms office and open office01:16
ilovefairuzhall: but i can't find the correct driver name for your usb card01:16
glickyeah UberN00b msoffice is completely unecessary01:16
UberN00band when i open docs made in ms office with open office the text is scrumbled01:17
glickUberN00b, OO.org can read 99% of office files correctly01:17
glickespecially the older files01:17
glickUberN00b, what kina document is it?01:17
glickwhat was it made with?01:17
trojan_spikeglick, anything else unnecessary??01:17
Daekdroomdoc? it should read doc with no problems01:18
glicktrojan_spike, ?01:18
UberN00bit doe read it correctly but the page is .. ermm smaller01:18
trojan_spikenever mind01:18
UberN00band i adjusted it to be A4 size01:18
hallilovefairuz sry i got disconnected what did you say before about something in a hostapd file ?01:18
JoeMaverickSettbut then if you use OO.org presentation file *.odp, it won't run on msoffice.01:18
glickso save presentations in the office presentation format01:19
glickoo.org can save as MS doc formats01:19
trojan_spikeUberN00b, what u can do is open the doc with-in open office.. edit , then save it from open office as a pdf.. open it pdf reader then01:19
JoeMaverickSettwill it work as good as it's on msoffice01:19
ilovefairuzhall: basically you need to do four things: a) install and configure hostapd 2) install and configure dnsmasq 3) set static IP for wlan0 4) set up IP masquerading01:20
glickJoeMaverickSett, will what work as good?01:20
Moggaquestion - if i mount the same drive from a host machine in multiple VMs am i going to cause trouble if everybody's writing? any file locking etc. issues?01:20
JoeMaverickSettglick, using OO.org presentation to save as ms file type.01:20
trojan_spikelots of trouble.. read / write01:20
ilovefairuzhall: i think there was a firewall program that could many of these things, firestarter ?01:20
glickJoeMaverickSett, i think so01:20
UberN00btrojan_spike, thanks but i tried that. The thing is that I am working on my cv and certain ammount of information HAS to be on 1 page and oo.org's page is just not big enough01:20
glickJoeMaverickSett, it should01:20
JoeMaverickSettglick, okie, thanks.01:20
hallilovefairuz it's a headlesss ubuntu server installation so can't use firestarter01:21
Moggatrojan_spike: so i should export from one VM (fileserver) and mount everwhere else?01:21
glickJoeMaverickSett, when i worked at boeing it was good enough for our presentations01:21
ilovefairuzhall: well then go the manual route as outlined01:21
Mogganfs etc01:21
trojan_spike1 at a time Mogga01:21
Saturn2888is the reason the UUIDs are the same for linux_raid_member drives so mdadm knows which drives go together?01:21
ilovefairuzhall: the conf files for hostapd and dnsmasq can be very very minimal01:21
JoeMaverickSettglick, cool. i sometime kinda like OO.org presentation more. ;) more helpful in setting up the presentation.01:21
trojan_spikeUberN00b, did u install ms-office with 'play on linux'?01:21
R3cur51v3Can anyone recommend a good webcam recorder? Cheese lags.01:22
hallilovefairuz could you guide me through what i need to do or where to start ? :)01:22
glickJoeMaverickSett, heh its come a long a way since StarOffice01:22
glickwhich was god aweful01:22
ilovefairuzhall: this is an example of hostapd.conf http://paste.ubuntu.com/468227/ .. but I can't find the correct name of the driver for rt73usb01:22
glicklol the early versions01:22
JoeMaverickSettglick, :D01:22
UberN00btrojan_spike, im not sure I used wine with winetricks + the guidance of the #winehq people, cant recall anything named "play on linux"01:22
glickoo.org has grown up :'(01:23
Moggatrojan_spike: only mount one drive at a time as a local mount /dev/vda /dev/vdb etc. but then i can do nfs exports etc and nfs/samba/etc mount on other machines?01:23
ilovefairuzhall: next is dnsmasq.conf.. http://paste.ubuntu.com/468228/ (notice the choosen network range) make sure that doesn't conflict with something you have01:23
trojan_spikeUberN00b, u should use play on linux to install windows software..01:23
glickonce you get used to it, ubuntu, is a much simpler system to use than windows01:24
glicki dont know if thats still true01:24
icemakerwiesshund: i am trying to install it like u said . what files shoud i intall? .sys/.cat/.inf?01:24
glicki havent tried 701:24
ilovefairuzhall: third is setting static IP and stuff (  for wlan0  in /etc/network/interfaces01:24
Moggatrojan_spike: thank you by the way... i'm actually on canonical support but my package doesn't support any virtualization even though this is really just a basic IO question01:24
glickbut i remember i hated vista01:24
UberN00btorjan_spike, so you think that wine doesnt run it properly ?01:24
glicki've been only running linux since '0101:24
ilovefairuzhall: fourth is enabling ipv4 forwarding and setting ip tables to forward packages01:25
trojan_spikeUberN00b, 'play on linux' was made by the developers that made wine.. This will improve the way windows software work on wine..01:26
ilovefairuzhall: http://users.utu.fi/sjsepp/hostapd/hostap.html covers a LOT of these01:26
trojan_spikeu want the link??01:26
ilovefairuzhall: adapt to your needs01:26
glickwould be nice if they released civ5 on linux as well01:26
glickbut i know itll never happen01:26
UberN00btrojan_spike I've been referred to improved versions of wine before, unfortunately paid software, is that the case as well ?01:27
hallilovefairuz i'll look into it. shame it just doesnt work with mode master that way it would work allrdy :(( but thx for the help01:27
ilovefairuzhall: the process is rather lengthy but not hard01:27
theholderbusy room01:27
ilovefairuzhall: you're welcome01:27
trojan_spikedo u mean u paid for wine?? or paid for something like 'crossover'??01:27
UberN00bsomeone tried to convince me to pay for something other than wine01:28
j800rUberN00b, cedega?01:28
UberN00bbut now i got wine free, but is play on linux free as well ?01:28
adamkexUberN00b: yes01:28
j800ri was about to get to that01:28
wiesshunddoes WUBI not allow you to do an actualy naitive linux install?01:28
trojan_spikeUberN00b, this is ur link :: http://www.playonlinux.com/script_files/PlayOnLinux/3.7.6/PlayOnLinux_3.7.6.deb  :: trust me,, it will make things easier01:29
UberN00bj800r, i think not, not sure though01:29
Odd-rationalewiesshund: suspend for one thing.01:29
Kuninwhen trying to upgrade 9.10->10.04 I get this error: The package 'skype-common' is marked for removal but it is in the removal blacklist.01:29
j800ryes, PlayOnLinux is a frontend for Wine, and it's brilliant01:29
snowy17Erm. Hi?01:29
j800rit's actually kinda better than Cedega, and it's free01:29
wiesshundOdd-rationale,  hmm?01:29
j800ranyways, time to format one huge drive.01:29
adamkexKunin: unblacklist it then, there should be a function in synaptic01:29
Odd-rationalewiesshund: suspend and hibernate don't work well in WUBI.01:29
Kuninadamkex I would looking for a blacklist option, but couldn't find one01:30
wiesshundOdd-rationale,  no im asking if there is not a way to do a real linux install fromt he win installer?01:30
adamkexKunin: ok hold on, let me look into it01:30
wiesshundOdd-rationale,  or only the compressed pseudo install in the win file system01:30
oliver_which it's best of kdenlive, cinelerra or openshot?01:30
icemakerwiesshund: ndiswrapper tells me the driver is invalid01:30
ubottuUsually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.01:31
UberN00btrojan_spike, thanks im on it now01:31
wiesshundicemaker,  then that driver wont work, and possibly the card is not supported01:31
kerebrusAny one know how to restore xserverp-xorg? I installed pulsbo on the direction of ubuntu wiki and it unstalled the devault compiz drivers, but now my computer doesnt load into ubuntu just sits a black screen01:31
trojan_spikeur welcome UberN00b01:31
Kuninadamkex I would thinking of just doing a --purge on skype01:31
Odd-rationalewiesshund: oh. misread... You can move the wubi install to a linux partition. thus making it just like a native install.01:31
lewis1711is there some trick to get inbuilt microphones in laptops working, or is linux unable to do this? I selected everything in my sound control and turned it up, but nothing01:31
snowy17Is theholder in here?01:31
adamkexKunin: go ahead, you can redownload it on skype.com, it doesn't seem to be in the repos, just do a "dpkg -i skype_whatever.deb" to install it01:32
icemakerwiesshund:  so nothing i can do to get it working?01:32
wiesshundOdd-rationale,  so the answer is no it wont do a real install. meh hehe01:32
wiesshundicemaker,  then if the mfg provides no linux driver, no the device probably isnt going to work01:33
Kuninadamkex ok, I'll try that, thanks01:33

iswbazhang: I am unfamilure with the linux directory tree system and was just wondering where to wget my teamspeak3 server to01:56

ilovefairuz!anyone | anon_02:01
ubottuanon_: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?02:01
Jordan_Uprogramble: Because they don't want people whiping out their hard drives when they mess up with dd (and unetbootin and Ubuntu's own tool work fine with the netbook images).02:01
chapattWhat is your problem, anon_?02:02
programbleJordan_U: oh god. and here i was thinking i joined #ubuntu not ##windows02:02
bazhangprogramble, watch the attitude02:02
programbleand ubuntu's own tool only works if you are ALREADY RUNNING ubuntu02:02

ubottuchapatt: 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 :)02:05
programbleJordan_U: i am using Arch, as i said earlier02:05
anon_What do you mean02:05
Jordan_Uprogramble: Then use unetbootin.02:05
ilovefairuzanon_: are all three "windows" the same ?02:05
programbleJordan_U: i like how the downloads page only has windows mac or ubuntu02:05
programbleJordan_U: that didn't work, as i said 3 times already02:06
anon_If i open XChat, i get 3 of them in the tray02:06
anon_IF i open FF, i get three of them in the tray02:06
anon_but they're only 1 prog.02:06
chapattanon_: Are they all the same windows? Do they all work?02:06
ilovefairuzanon_: tray? or task bar?02:06

Mr_Sonomahow would i list files in a directory that have been added or modified after a certain date?02:07
chapattanon_:does that mean you problem is solved?02:07
bazhangprogramble, there are aur builds for unetbootin.02:07
ilovefairuzMr_Sonoma: no creation data recorded on ext4, and man find02:08
zc00giibazhang: aur builds are broken02:08
programblebazhang: i have unetbootin and it appears to work fine, but the usb will not boot02:08
Jordan_Uprogramble: Some (broken) BIOSs will only boot a drive if it has an "active" partition on it, can you check if one of your partitions is "bootable" with fdisk?02:08
programbleJordan_U: again, already said, the partition is indeed marked with the boot flag02:08
BidaBoyhow can i change my ip adress using an adsl connection?02:09
Jordan_Uprogramble: Not sure where you'd post it, but if you can post the first sector of flash drive it would be usefull to be able to look at it.02:09
ilovefairuzBidaBoy: disconnect and reconnect02:09
programbleJordan_U: uh.. yeah, where would i post that?02:09
ilovefairuzBidaBoy: to obtain a new dynamically assigned IP, unless you have a static one02:10

subspiderwiesshund, thnks because i have lubuntu over there as print server03:13
Kuninhmm, this doesn't look good03:13
Jordan_Uprogramble: This will only work if the unetbootin / startup disk creator app is doing things in what is IMHO the wrong way (aside from also being broken in your case). But try "install-mbr /dev/sdX".03:13

sindegraalthough you have to edit not menu.lst if you have grub203:18
wiesshundsindegra, cool03:18
thune3sindegra: oh you found a method, i was just testing one out...03:18
sindegrathune3: did it work?03:18
thune3sindegra: i just moved /etc/init/gdm.conf to /etc/init/gdm.noexec  . That prevented the gui from starting, and led right to terminal.03:19
Jordan_Uprogramble: Not off hand, the project is unfortunately simply named "mbr" and source code can be found here: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~neilt/03:19
Evolution-Xi have 3 diferent recovery at star up03:20
Evolution-Xis that normal03:20
Jordan_Uprogramble: I think that syslinux has similar boot sector code and a command to install it.03:20
Mr_Sonomasindegra, good, i had just found a wiki on grub2 that i thought maybe would help. but now it looks like you dont need it LOL03:21
sindegrathune3: nice. I edited /etc/default/grub and added the text boot option, then ran sudo grub-update (I have grub2)03:21
sindegraMr_Sonoma: figured it all out on my own. Apparently the boot options from grub1 are pretty much the same as grub2.03:22

programbleJordan_U: the computer i plan to use this on eventually will have windows 7 on it, so thats not an option03:23
thune3sindegra: yeah, i think the text boot option is probably the best. Then "start gdm" will just launch your gui without intervention.03:23
Mr_Sonomasindegra, yea but reading that wiki looks like menu.lst has been replaced by 2 files, one of witch is not user editable03:23

sindegraMr_Sonoma: yes. the /etc/default/grub file is editable, which is the one I changed.03:24
jatsQuick question: when I delete or move files, df and nautilus don't report any more free space, even after a reboot. What's happening?03:24
Jordan_Uprogramble: I meant to test it out. Basically you currently have no boot code at all in your mbr, a microsoft style mbr just chainloads the first partition marked "active".03:24
wiesshundjats,  did you empty the trash bin?03:24
jatswiesshund: yep.03:24
programbleJordan_U: i think im just going to have to burn a cd, boot it, then use the usb creation tool03:25
jatsKk2: Not all computers support 64-bit Operating systems like Ubuntu. Also, some drivers and programs don't work on 64-bit linux.03:26

ericthehaxi have a g-pen f610 and whenever i "click" (press the pen tip) it will then act weird until i pull the pen out of range03:26
bazhangKk2, that's a poorly worded web page. 64bits is fine03:27
Jordan_Uprogramble: If unetbootin and Ubuntu's tool really aren't writing a bootable mbr (simply assuming that a microsoft style one already exists, which to be fair is true for most drives) then it's a bug that needs to be fixed. If you could confirm that this is the case it would be helpfull.03:27
jatsThis probably is redundant, but other programs are reporting they can't write to disk either.03:27
programbleJordan_U: at this point i think the usb creator didn't work because i was runing it on arch.. it required a fair bit of hacking to even get it to half work03:28
matthew__what is the ubuntu equivalent of asoundconf?03:28
Jordan_Uprogramble: What about unetbootin though?03:28
jatsKk2, bazhang is right, it should probably be worded "not recommended for people unsure if their computer supports 64-bit programing.03:28
programbleJordan_U: i have no idea03:28
thune3jats: i suspect your fs has errors and needs to be fsck-ed. You can look at dmesg log or /var/log/syslog for your drive letter to see if an error is reported.03:28
Jordan_Uprogramble: That should work fine in arch.03:28
newubuntu10_04us I just installed Ubuntu for the first time and I'm trying to figure out a few things.

oafhow to safely remove u stick with command?03:30
newubuntu10_04usI love your confidence programable.03:30
programblenewubuntu10_04us: ask anyone :P03:30
Mr_Sonomanewubuntu10_04us, is that a windows program? ubuntu is not windows ;)03:30
jatsnewubuntu10_04us: I don't think any anti-spyware apps run on Ubuntu.03:30
sindegranewubuntu10_04us: it seems incredible but true. you really don't need spyware.03:30
sindegranewubuntu10_04us: and not only because all the spyware is focused on windows platforms03:31
newubuntu10_04usSo, does that mean there are no apps developed? I don't know if it's windows only or not. That is why I came here. I figured someone would either know or be able to direct me to a valuable product.03:31
jatsnewubuntu: Unfortunately, I don't think you can automatically remove spyware from a windows partition from within Ubuntu.03:31
bastidrazoroaf: umount /path/to/usbstick03:31
Mr_Sonomanewubuntu10_04us, you don't need anti spyware on ubuntu03:31
sindegranewubuntu10_04us: there's like linux spyware discovered once ever 5 years03:31
sindegranewubuntu10_04us: or probably less!03:32
newubuntu10_04usjats: my windows partition is GONE...I removed the whole partition table before booting to the U disk.03:32
programblenewubuntu10_04us: then you dont need anti-spyware or anti-virus03:32
oafbastidrazor: i use that command but it's is different with i click in a gui03:32
Mr_Sonomanewubuntu10_04us, then install ubuntu and have no fear! :D03:32
bazhangnewubuntu10_04us, you can install a rootkit hunter if you wish. there is ZERO need for anti-spyware03:32
revarrdoes anyone else have an acer aspire 5740 that has Ubuntu working with brightness control?03:32

oafof cause  umount !!03:39
sindegraoaf: maybe try copy-pasting what you put in and the results you got from that03:40
Jordan_Uprogramble: It should. If it isn't then try "kvm -cdrom chainload.iso -hda /dev/sdX -boot d"03:40

Spaztic_OneHow can I view the screen, or at least what was said, that is there immediately before login?03:41
oafsindegra: i have stop all progress03:41
bastidrazoroaf umount by itself can not magically determine what you want to unmount. you have to tell it what to do.03:41
oafbastidrazor: god, i of cause use that command , umount /media/u03:41
oafbastidrazor: is it right?03:42
programbleJordan_U: i had this other idea. do you know how to get a vm in vbox see my usb stick?03:42
Kuninhmm, after upgrading to 10.04 one of my drives isn't mounting which breaks my raid array...03:42
bastidrazoroaf: yes, did the icon disappear from your desktop? unless you've changed things anything mounted in /media will appear there.03:42
oafbastidrazor: i have said that it have not disappeared03:43
programbleJordan_U: also, with the chainloader iso, it still says its not a bootable disk03:43

PureSinesindegra, can you tell me where in the address should I click to get jdownwloader please ?04:11
bastidrazorSpaztic_One: quiet hides all the things going on during boot.  splash gives you the Ubuntu logo with loading dots. by removing them you will see text scrolling by as things get loaded04:11
tophello, I have a problem where I put ubuntu into hibernate and I pull it out of Hibernate and have no internet connection. can any one help me im new to ubuntu04:11
Spaztic_Onebastidrazor: Ah, ok. Is there any way to review what all that text was after boot?04:12
blendmaster1024_nullwire, yes04:12
blendmaster1024_nullwire, except for yourself :)04:13
nullwireah, ty :)04:13
sindegraPureSine, that's a link to the ppa.04:13
nullwirethanks ubuntu chat, ur always handy04:13
sindegraPureSine: you can use apt-get to get your jdownloader if you add the ppa to your sources.lst04:13
PureSineoh that's getiing more complex do I need to download apt-get too04:14
josuealguem sabe como ativar os efeitos visuais no ubuntu 10.404:14
sindegraPureSine: you already have apt-get, or at least you should04:14
bastidrazorSpaztic_One: you need to enable bootlogging. edit /etc/default/bootlogd and change BOOTLOGD_ENABLE=No   to Yes.. when you boot a log will be created in /var/log/boot04:15
mrecis there any way to temporary disable the screensaver? it's a little bit annoying that the system goes into standby when watching TV04:15
sindegraPureSine: you can actually get wget by doing the following: sudo apt-get install wget04:15

PureSinesindegra, you mean I type that in terminal ?04:15
Spaztic_Onebastidrazor: Thank you. So, if that was not enabled, there is no way to see all of the messages?04:15
sindegraPureSine: yeah. Although maybe apt-get uses wget. I dunno anymore04:15
sindegraPureSine: try it anyway04:16
bastidrazorSpaztic_One: nothing has been logged previous to enabling this so no record of previous boots.04:16
Spaztic_Onebastidrazor: what about the current boot?04:16
bastidrazorSpaztic_One: same.04:16
Spaztic_Onebastidrazor: Alright, thank you. Reason why I'm asking about this is because I saw something listed as "failed" and wanted to know what it was.04:17

blendmaster1024_anyone know a way to record the sound coming out of an arbitrary alsa program into audacity or something similar? my sound card doesn't have a loopback device.04:17

coz_waterboy0911,  well issnt there a check box in front of http?05:05
cablopwaterboy0911: if you have a very specific system, then don't upgrade all to lucid yet05:05
waterboy0911yeah there is.. but where can I see lucid or karmic?05:05
coz_waterboy0911, it would look similar to this    http://ppa.launchpad.net/matthaeus123/mrw-gimp-svn/ubuntu lucid main05:06
waterboy0911No I don't have that..05:06
cablophow can i start via ssh a graphic program into an existing session?05:06
coz_waterboy0911,  that was a bad example but that is where the work lucid would be located abouts05:07
wiesshundmfillpot,  the answer is no. and if you spam post the question your not gonna be well liked05:07
coz_waterboy0911,  no you wont have that link there but you see the word lucid there?05:07
PureSinesindegra, thanks, it seems it is downloading something :)05:07

coz_waterboy0911,   oh05:08
waterboy0911then everything uncheck05:08

togdarwiesshund: yeah - thanks.  Suppose I thought id have same option from 'Disk Utility'05:09
coz_waterboy0911,  this is where "house visits"  would be handy05:09

Spidey01Hello, my laptops synpatics touch pad stops working whenever the system enters suspend, the wireless also disconnects05:31
coz_waterboy0911,  if you end up reinstalling vista as well ...just partition the disk  in half05:31
Spidey01Is there a way to automatically re-enable the touch pad without having to reboot?05:31
coz_waterboy0911,  then it will be easier to distinguis them partitions in ubuntu install pricedure05:31

I was using windows before and I would like to switch back. I Just dont know how I can install windows back on my netbook. I have a windows.iso on my hard drive tho. Im just going to install windows to do my studies (I'll put Ubuntu back on when Im done hehe). Hop05:41

nIRVI'm in need of speaking to someone with expertise on networking & Ubuntu.05:41
nIRVWe're a national human rights watchdog that decided to move our computer park (+/- 50) to ubuntu05:42
b0nnhrm, ff isn't using my flashplayer, and I cannot see why, any idea how to troubleshoot?05:42
mom_nIRV, i think canonical sells support05:42
nIRVexperience was fantastic as we were migrating. we're now facing a serious networking issue that might see us reverting back to ms windows.05:42
TheoAnyone here that can help me?05:43
nIRVmom, we're non-profit ngo, don't have $ to pay for canonical's support : )05:43
bazhangTheo, that is a windows issue05:43
bazhangTheo, /join ##windows05:43
grizzly_need some help guys05:43
mom_nIRV, better revert back to windows then05:43
TheoOk thanks. I'll try it there05:43
grizzly_i am brand new to linux ubuntu and am sorry didn't get into it sooner05:43
thune3patx: i'm not seeing much accept https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/virtualbox-ose/+bug/495182/comments/6  . The solution was (i think) disabling compiz in guest or adding this to guest xorg.conf05:43
buzaggrizzly_: ??05:44
nIRVmom, your obviously not a ubuntu PR guy :)05:44
Sunzarui'm testing my notification area thingy.. can someone say my name real quick05:44
mom_nIRV, nope, if i were i would give you support costs05:44
nIRVlet me describe problem in the off chance someone faced a similar situation *crossing fingers*05:44
grizzly_trying to install gnome3 shell and keep getting errors05:44
buzaggrizzly_: gnome3 shell   whats that?05:45
grizzly_its a desktop shell05:45
mom_nIRV, have you looked in the extensive ubuntu forums first?05:46
slinkeeyHello All!! :)05:46
grizzly_anybody know anything about gnome 3 shell?05:46
nIRVbasically, our network became unresponsive after most computers moved to ubuntu. web connections time out constently. doesn't seem to be a router problem as we've tried three different types, doesn't seem to be an ipv6 issue as we've tried to disable it on some machines that were then still having network issues, doesn't seem to be TCP scale issue as we applied workaround, etc.05:46
Spidey01Anyone know anything about synaptics ? >_>05:46
thune3grizzly_: only thing i've seen here is systems needing repair after trying to uninstall it05:47
soreau! anyone | Spidey0105:47
ubottuSpidey01: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?05:47
grizzly_i'v seen many on youtube working with it pretty good05:47
nIRVmom, I've been googling the whole wide web for two weeks, tried all of the solutions out there (disabling ipv6, tcp scale, routers, etc.)05:47
grizzly_has great features and looks05:47
mom_nIRV, my network (with router) works fine05:47
Spidey01ubottu: actually I asked it a few pages back05:47
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:47
slinkeeyI have a ubuntu notebook tethered to my blackberry.. The Blackberry assigns my ppp connection an IP address that happens to be the same numbers at work...  This causes a problem when I vpn.. Any tips in ubuntu to get around this?05:47
nIRVmom, how many computers?05:48
mom_nIRV, i only own 3 :P05:48
Spidey01Heh, should have guessed that 8=)05:48
thune3grizzly_: i wish i new. sounds like something to play around with on some livecd with it, before committing to install.05:48
slinkeeyOnce VPNd in I can get to oddball machine on different subnets, but I can not get to the ones with the same ip scheme as my pc cause the routings conflict... :(05:48
mom_nIRV, Im 3/3 and you are 0/5005:48
nIRVmom, basically, yes : )05:48
nIRVthe odd thing is that remaining windows machine on the network are _not_ affected.05:49
mom_nIRV, are the windows machines using TCP/IP?05:49
sweetpinIRV: are the windows boxes on the same switch?05:50

silv3r_m00nsometimes when I do sudo apt-get upgrade , it says The following packages have been kept back:05:52
silv3r_m00nwhy ?05:52
mom_nIRV, windows boxes use auto DHCP?05:52
frankS2How can i grep after " and \ i?05:52
nIRVall machines are on dhcp05:52
mom_nIRV, is the domain configured properly?05:53
nIRVhrm, I think the domain is not set (blank)05:53
togdarim still at a loss on how to do a 'full format' not these fake mbr wipes - kinda wish I had a windows 2000 disk05:53
togdaris fdisk what I want?05:54
mom_nIRV, what happens when you try to ping a ubuntu machine from the windows machine?05:54
buzagtogdar: want to wipe a disk?05:55
grizzly_anyone know anything about gnome shell?05:55
grizzly_i am new to ubuntu05:55
litropyIs there a way I can just bypass plymouth right now? I'm getting "conflicting fb hw usage inteldrmfb vs VESA VGA"05:55
togdarwant to feel like i really formated it - passing over the sectors... not this click a button that says format and a second later it says done :)05:55
nIRVpinging (both web sites that time out and internal windows/ubuntu machines) working fine05:55
buzagtogdar: really format    as in complete wipe?05:56
togdarbuzag - last raid 1 failed on me - but i think i had crap lingering there...05:56
mom_nIRV, how is DNS then?05:56
Spidey01the Xorg log file is telling me  config/udev: removing ...  \n  UnloadModule: "synaptics"05:56
Spidey01how the flub can I force it to reload the thing?05:56
mom_nIRV, when you ping you are doing like www.google.com etc?05:57
nIRVmom, I've tried ISP DNS, google 8888 8844 DNS, nothing works05:57
thune3silv3r_m00n: my understanding is that if upgrading a package requires installing something other than just a "higher version" of a package (or needs to uninstall something), it is held back. "apt-get dist-upgrade" or specifiying those packages on a "apt-get install ..." line will *usually* install those packages. Just make sure it looks ok to do so.05:57
nIRVmom, DNS resolution is fine05:57
togdarbuzag: dont want to mess up cylinders and things I don't understand - just want the disk to not have old stuff from when it was raid 0 and Vista05:57
buzagtogdar: just use fdisk05:57
Jordan_Utogdar: It really doesn't matter what used to be on a disk.05:57
nIRVmom, connection timing out after DNS resolution ... if I for eg telnet www.google.com 80, it resolves ip but then times out05:57
mom_nIRV, i thought you said: pinging (both web sites that time out and internal windows/ubuntu machines) working fine05:57
nIRVmom, yep, ping e.g. www.google.com or ping is ifne05:58
togdarJordan_U: really?  I was always told to reformat before reinstall05:58
nIRVerr fine05:58
buzagtogdar:yeah reformat05:58
nIRVoh I should add, we have an internal web server (ip that works fine, accessible from ubuntu machines ... the connection time out occurs only when connecting to external IPs05:59
Jordan_Utogdar: Folklore, or at best simply a roundabout way to test that the drive doesn't have any bad sectors.05:59
pr986any one say me how i use wvdial in ubuntu05:59
sweetpitogdar: full format is usually unnecessary. check out dban if you really want to wipe the data05:59
togdarJordan_U are there not viruses that can persist?05:59
togdardban! thats what I wanted to remember06:00
mom_does links2 work on the ubuntu machines?06:00
buzagtogdar: but dban is very OTT IMHOP06:00
pr986how i use wvdial in ubuntu06:00
togdar:) maybe ill just buy a new disk06:00
buzagtogdar: why bother   bro06:01
Jordan_Utogdar: No, once you've created a new partition table and filesystem the viruses are just bits on the disk considered "free space", or they're overwritten and then they're used. Either way the fact that those bits once contained a virus is meaningless.06:01
togdarkidding - may need some help in a sec here - didnt seem to be able to mount these last time06:01
traskmindHow can I disable ACPI permanently?06:01
Bookman darn, my computer keeps shutting down randomly and I can find no errors in the system log. I'm not sure where to check next06:02
buzagtogdar:pm me if you need to06:02
bazhangthecat, wrong channel06:02
togdarJprdan_U: maybe its just psychological then... peace of mind, tradition, what have you06:02
togdarThanks all06:02
pr986any one say me how i use wvdial in ubuntu06:02
buzagtraskmind: noacpi06:02
traskmindbuzag: I haven't edited a Grub menu by hand since before Grub2, so what file do I need to edit?06:03
mom_nIRV, not really see what the problem is if the machines can all communicate with each other and the internet and can resolve domain names06:03
Jordan_Utraskmind: /etc/default/grub06:03
buzagtraskmind: its /etc/grub06:04
Guest36049wow. toos low06:04
IntelMinerHey guys, quick question, does a tool or guide exist for creating a 3rd party software source for Ubuntu?06:04
pr986any one say me how i use wvdial in ubuntu06:04
nIRVmom, welcome to my world :) thanks for taking time to listen to the issue... I should add we rewired most of the network (a job we had to do anyway) in the hope a broken cable to have led to this situation. unfortunately, we were wrong.06:04
buzagtraskmind: Guest36049 is right06:04
bazhang!ppa > IntelMiner06:05
ubottuIntelMiner, please see my private message06:05
mom_nIRV, why would you think it is a broken cable if they can all communicate with each other?06:05
Jordan_Utraskmind: Yes.06:05
traskmindJordan_U: thank you.06:05
Jordan_Utraskmind: You're welcome.06:05
nIRVmom, out of hopelessness? I thought defective cables could have led to connection timing out in certain cases.06:06
mom_nIRV, what happens when you installed ubuntu?  it wasnt able to get packages?06:06
IntelMinerbazhang, ubottu, Im talking about making my own local PPA, not just adding one06:06
pr986any one say me how i use wvdial in ubutnu06:06
bazhangIntelMiner, local repo?06:07
bazhangIntelMiner, apt-mirror or aptoncd perhaps06:07
pr986please help me06:07
IntelMinerbazhang, custom local repo, Ive got apt-mirror for a 'vanilla' one but I have some other packages I usually update06:07
ubottuAPTonCD is a tool with a graphical interface which allows you to create one or more CDs or DVDs with all of the packages you've downloaded via apt-get or aptitude, creating a removable repository that you can use on other computers - See also !offline06:07
nIRVmom, actually, this is part of the strangeness of this story. when our network was 20% ubuntu, no problem ... network started not working on ubuntu machines when we reached a 70% ubuntu-machine-on-network ratio06:07
=== Guest36049 is now known as FenrisWulff
bazhangIntelMiner, aptoncd then I guess06:07
IntelMinerbazhang, would that require me to use a CD/USB each time or can I just chuck it on say, an Apache folder and apt-get it over the network06:08
mom_nIRV, are you configuring manual IPs?06:08
bazhangIntelMiner, not sure about that but sounds doable now that you mention it06:08
nIRVmom, nope06:08
nIRVall of our network is auto dhcp, except few printers and one web  server06:09
wiesshundwhere is the session properties manager at in 10.4 ?06:09
FenrisWulffpr986, do you need to get it or know how to use it?06:09
IntelMinerbazhang, how does say, WINE or such do it for theirs, assuming Deb/Ubuntu has a specific way to do that06:09
mom_nIRV, maybe some were using the same IP06:09
mom_mom_, id do everything manually06:10
bazhangFenrisWulff, he/she quit06:10
mom_static IPs06:10
nIRVmom, our fixed ips are between 50-90, and our dhcp server attributes ips from 100-200.06:10
FenrisWulffbazhang, yeah, I can't read or write..06:10
bazhangIntelMiner, depends on the number of packages needed I suppose, if you already have an apt-mirror..06:11
nIRVmom, so unless the router's dhcp server issues overlapping IPs (which I doubt is the problem since we tried 3 different routers), problem is elsewhere.06:11
IntelMinerbazhang, its a few, just be nice to have it automated, what if I just say dropped it into the apt-mirror directly, would it grab it since its the newest file?06:11
mom_nIRV, did you run out of addresses with 50 computers?06:12
nIRVit's a real shame we're hit by this mysterious network problem, our transition from windows to ubuntu went really well and the staff reacted quite positively to it.06:12
nIRVmom, nope06:12
mom_nIRV, id try configuring a ubuntu box manually for static IP and see what happens first:  http://www.ubuntugeek.com/change-ubuntu-system-from-dhcp-to-a-static-ip-address.html06:13
nIRVmom, did that too06:14
nIRVmom, same problem06:14
bazhanghttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/LocalNet IntelMiner leads to this: http://www.howtoforge.com/local_debian_ubuntu_mirror06:15
nIRVmom, heh we're retracing the various paths we took during these last two weeks : ) keep throwing ideas, we might hit something06:15
IntelMinerbazhang, already done that to make a "vanilla" apt mirror, now I want to make a PPA or such so itll default to fetching newer packages if I specify them06:16
sweetpinIRV: do all machines have the same nic?06:16
wrektjethey having a small problem with my networking. not getting an ISP but I found the "sudo dhclient eth0" command and that is working for me. is there a cause for this?06:17
topim also having network issues happening after i hibernate my computer. and the sudo dhclient eth0 command also works for me after removing network manager which i beleived to be the problem06:18
mom_nIRV, did you plug in your ubuntu computers?06:18
nIRVsweetpi, hrm, how am I supposed to get this value? all of them have, to my knowledge, different MAC addresses and unique IPs (from what I can see)06:18
wrektjetwell i went to edit the NM .conf file and found it blank! i dont recall that being the case. (this all started bec i moved)06:19
rebirthhello, i am trying to use processing on ubuntu, but when i launch it i get the error "Processing required java 6 from Sin (ie the sun-java-jdk package on Ubuntu)..." but i have already installed the package "sun-java6-sdk"06:19
sweetpinIRV: just thinking it might be a driver issue06:19
mom_nIRV, ifconfig should show06:19
nIRVmom, :) that reminds me of my first freelance job twelve years ago. "sir, I urgently need your help, my fax hasn't been working for a week and the company can't fix it", came there and plugged in machine. the easiest money I ever earned ;)06:19
maxredchquisiera peguntar algo06:20
nIRVsweetpi, a driver issue of one computer that'd result in a network time out issue for all machines?06:20
maxredchhi i have a question to all people06:20
mom_maxredch, en ingles por favor06:20
maxredchim new on ubuntu06:20
maxredchand my ubuntu 10.04 some times fall06:20
mom_maxredch, there is a spanish channel too for ubuntu06:21
maxredchand my window turn black06:21
sweetpinIRV: no, i meant if all ubuntu machines used the same nic driver, it would be the same on all of them06:21
maxredchdont worry im speak a little of spanish06:21
maxredchmy ubuntu dont be stable =/06:21
karashi'm having network problems as well ever since my last system update. i've disabled ipv6 in grub, made the firefox corrections, static and dhcp assignments, MTU tweaking, etc., everything possible i could find on ubuntuforums. I can ping sites just fine, i can dns sites just fine, and intermittently it will work fantastic and normal for about 5 minutes, and then it's back to horrible.06:21
preecherhow does i get plugins for empathy so i can make audio calls06:21
maxredchyou think are firefox the problems ?06:22
topI feel that installing a different network manager like wicd will solve some network problems. testing now06:22
karashi also installed wicd and removed network-manager06:22
karashsame thing06:22
maxredchfirefox ?06:22
top bummer to hear this karash06:22
maxredchand if im unistall firefox you think my ubuntu dont turn black ?06:22
karashyes, and epiphany06:22
maxredchepiphany = ?06:23
maxredchthe same06:23
nIRVsweetpi, k ... I'll have a look. the whole thing is quite bizarre, for the problem to appear in relation to high ratio of ubuntu computers on network...06:23
mom_nIRV, have you tried debian stable?06:23
Jordan_Ukarash: What are the exact symptoms, does another OS work on the same machine/network?06:23
topim using opera as my primary web browser.06:23
topfire fox not the issue06:23
maxredchuffffff  opera are very nice but some webpages cant open06:23
Nick_NestorHello everybody, I've got a problem. So, I left today and just hit "suspend." I continued to turn off my monitor and rush out the door. I come home, and my monitor turns on, but to a power-saving state, indicating that the computer isn't even putting out a signal. I'm moved the mouse, typed some keys, hard-rebooted, unplugged, everything (that an idiot like me) can do. Any suggestions? :]06:23
topstill. i leave on fire fox as backup :)06:24
karashJordan_U: Windows can always find sites and at least load them. speed is usually consistent to around 3-5 mbps (i have a 5 mbit connection), but ubuntu seems to just give up.06:24
nIRVmom, I had hoped we wouldn't need to go as far as re-installing another linux distribution on all our machines *snif snif*. at the end of the day, if we can't fix this, that will be one of our few options left.06:24
sweetpinIRV: maybe it was a kernel update that did you in, not the ratio. the windows boxed work fine, correct?06:24
Jordan_UnIRV: Have you looked at what kind of traffic you're getting with wireshark?06:24
mom_nIRV, i personally would have installed a stable distro for a rollout of that size06:24
nIRVsweetpi, we installed ubuntu 10.04 on all machines and have not had kernel updates in between time things were ok and time things were not ok :)06:25
=== Nick_Nestor is now known as xVxNICKxVx
Jordan_Ukarash: You're going to need to be more specific and clear than "seems to just give up".06:25
mom_nIRV, ubuntu is mostly testing and unstable debian packages06:25
nIRVmom, 10.04 is LTS no? :)06:25
maxredchi like ubuntu more than windows 706:25
karashJordan_U: The server at www.ubuntugeek.com is taking too long to respond.06:25
maxredchbut the problems06:25
Moggahaving a problem cross-mounting between VMs... mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on dstore1:/mnt/home06:25
maxredchi think i need to come back to windows 706:25
mom_maxredch, yep that means they will be trying to fix it for 7 years i think06:25
karashJordan_U: it is also affecting my repository connections, so it's not just limited to my browser(s)06:25
Jordan_Ukarash: Can you ping www.ubuntugeek.com OK?06:26
nIRVjordan, I've tried this. I'm not a big expert on tcp outputs so did not see any obvious alarming items in the output list06:26
maxredchuffffff  why my monitor turn black06:26
Moggamount fileserver:/mnt/home /mnt/home is what i'm using... on fileserver the home mount is a block level mount of a LV on the host06:26
maxredchwhit ubuntu 10.0406:26
mom_nIRV, they will be trying to get it stable over 7 years06:26
karashJordan_U: yeah06:26
Moggaany ideas06:26
karashJordan_U: i can ping everything with minimal packet loss06:26
nIRVmom, heh06:26
maxredchdont exist a distro more stable than ubuntu ?06:26
karashsometimes, however, it will spike to 14% loss when it gets really bad.06:27
maxredchon linux and very easy like ubuntu ?06:27
mom_max109, debian stable06:27
mom_maxredch, debian stable06:27

nIRVmom, actually, this is probably a good rational. I wanted to give ubuntu a spin because I thought the sexy factor would make it easier for the staff to accept transition06:29

nIRVmom, I was more referring to stuff like wallpapers, nice-to-the-eyes theme, indicators experience, etc.06:32
karashi'm mostly just frustrated because everything was working flawlessly for about a month, and then i decided to do a system update and it's been horrid ever since. i've been on the phone with my ISP 3 times now and they can not find the problem.06:32
karashand connections like IRC seem to stay connected just fine.06:32
mom_nIRV, you could also post your question in the ubuntu forums06:32
wrektjetkarash i was using static IP before i moved. right now im just working on getting my network up then ill try setting my router. did u have any luck with the other mamager. wicd06:32
mom_nIRV, and explain everything you did and all the tests you ran06:32
|TroubleMaker|extremity, you can use the menu editor to remove the items from the menus. system > Preferences > Main Menu06:33
karashwrektjet: at first it was working okay, but the problems came back even after a complete removal of network-manager06:33
nIRVmom, yeah, that's in the to-do list before ultimately reverting back to windows06:33
extremityyes i knew that, but Menu editor don't show this items =)06:33

bazhang!lamp | stercor06:37
ubottustercor: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)06:37

greezmunkeygbear14275: not much help, I know...07:01
blakprofessional-are: test out the command + operators you want in your terminal, then go in to "autostart", and "copy+paste" the command, comment it so you can find it later and you should be set07:01
gbear14275greezmunkey: thats ok :)  The conversation is at least welcome.  So I guess I'm asking now because it seems that every kernel upgrade I'm getting more and more of them07:02

rokyquietone: what do you mean by "usable"07:05
greezmunkeygbear14275: your linux system is more like an old school hot rod. It takes a bit of fussing and figuring, and if you know where to look it will tell you what is wrong. Checking logs is like poppin' the hood and tweaking the carbs, just something you need to do...07:05
ravis trisquel good?07:05
gbear14275greezmunkey:   those are just chunks I pulled out and copied down... but you can see the body of the message seems to stay the same but the PID tends to change and they grow and shrink in quantity throughout the upgrade process07:05
greezmunkeygbear14275: I'll take a look, but no promises.07:06
quietonerocky. I find waiting 5 seconds for a response from a mouse click is unusable. In a te rm, I type a word or two and have to wait 5 sec to see it.07:06

papnaWhen I try to boot my desktop from a live USB I burned, I get the first screen ("Ubuntu" with little progress pips) forever.07:29
blakquietone: yeah, i've never had to deal with video cards in *buntu since my built-in on my top works fine, hope that helped?07:30
bazhangpapna, did you md5 the iso? burn at low speed then do a disk integrity check?07:30
bazhang!md5 | papna07:30
ubottupapna: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows07:30
thune3gbear14275: did you see this https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/lvm2/+bug/591823 sounds like a grub issue07:30
quietoneblak, it give me no clear direction. I don't know what to do or try.07:30
papnabazhang: I verified the md5. I did not have burn speed options since it's a USB stick, not a CD.07:31
aloonHowdy , everything is going good except I did an update and it upated my kernal etc ... now I get the following error everytime I install new software:  dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of linux-image-generic: linux-image-generic depends on linux-image-2.6.35-10-generic; however:  Package linux-image-2.6.35-10-generic is not configured yet.07:31
bazhangpapna, using unetbootin or usb-creator07:31
daedaluzsound is clipping like crazy driving me insane, now would the correct procedure be to disable pulseaudio and use oss instead07:31
tensorpuddinghmm, mkfontdir and mkfontscale don't work07:32
bazhangaloon, where did you get that kernel07:32
aloonit updated to to07:32
bazhangaloon, lucid only uses 2.6.3207:32
aloonI knew clicking yes might cause weirdness07:32
papnabazhang: Using the "Make Startup Disk" utility thing.07:32
quietoneblak, but then I can't make it worse. so I pick one of the suggestions and have a go07:32
pallgonepapna: try to disable the splash so you can see what's going on07:33
papnaNot unetbootin.07:33
aloonbazhang i'm on maverick07:33
bazhangpapna, sounds like a bad 'burn' then. you may also wish to try again or try unetbootin07:33
bazhangaloon, #ubuntu+1 for that07:33
aloonoka thanks07:33
papnabazhang: Well, I tried with multiple USB keys now written from multiple computers at least one of which I verified the iso.07:36
papnabazhang, I'll try unetbootin.07:37

niteshadewell, when i right-click the workspace switcher, and click preferences, it only has a little dialog box with just spinbox for columns, and rows, but it's supposed to have more than that07:47
enavgreezmunkey: wht do you mean?07:48
greezmunkeyenav: pull out cards and place them back, one at a time, etc.07:48
TheEskimoSorry, niteshade. A little distracted. Which options aren't showing?07:49

enavgreezmunkey:  i allready did everithing i knopw as computer technician but i thing this crash thing is due a SistemBug07:50
TheEskimoniteshade: I'm not sure why that would be happening. Have you tried readding the panel?07:50
niteshadewhat do you mean?07:50
greezmunkeyenav: yeah, good luck finding that :(  Random errors are the worst.07:50
TheEskimoniteshade: You can add another workspace switcher and  see if it works as expected.07:51
enavi did some search at lauchepad  and find a error that looks like mime... is a problem with a log file that flood after a recursive error07:51
niteshadek, but what did you mean by "reading the panel?07:51

bdunnawaygdm == g*damn07:52
magicianlordis it better to have gnome panel on top or bottom of screen? i cannot decided07:52
TheEskimomagicianlord: that is all preference. It takes up the same space either way.07:52
blagmagicianlord: top, because that's also where window controls are07:52
enavanyway im goign to post my PC specs07:52
niteshadewell, that didn't work07:53
TheEskimoblag: you could make the same arguement for bottom. Less chance of missclicking on the panel instead of the x button for example07:53
greezmunkeyskidoo: in a terminal, run tail -f /var/log/syslog - then in another terminal, sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart - check the first terminal for errors.07:53
magicianlorddo you hit the buttons accidentally when the panel is at the top?07:53
TheEskimoniteshade: What feature is it that you want that is not there? I don't have a workspace switcher up so I can't check (sorry). What is the specific option07:53
niteshadewhat i'm trying to do is name each workspace and have it say which one's which on the switcher applet (I know it can be done, and i've done it before, but it's just not showing up)07:54
niteshadelike i have one for web browsing, one for stuff on console, one for games, etc07:54
enavUbuntu 64b 10.04 updated, Compiz 'On', CPU Athlon 6000+ X2, 6GB Corsair XMS, Gforce9800GTX..... give me some idea of the posible crash thing07:54
PureSinehi I'm using VirtualBox(latest version) and I created two VM one with ubuntu and another with win XP, Numpad does not work with ubuntu but works with win XP, can it be Vbox related or ubuntu related ?07:55
TheEskimoniteshade: you are right. That option should be there. When did this problem start occuring? Did you reinstall ubuntu/gnome or anything else? Did it occur out of the blue?07:55
niteshadeit should have that in preferences07:55
enavwell bye bye07:56
niteshadeactually i haven't tried anything like this in a while, so i couldn't really track it down to when07:56
niteshadeis there any other way to change this stuff than by going to the applet and clicking preferences?07:56
magicianlordi was reading that hdparm is broken in lucid, but sqeueeze already has it fixed07:56
magicianlordwhy isnt the ubu pkg up to date07:56

TheEskimoNiglop: They all have the linux kernal, however the programs and other things installed on top are what is different. Example, package managers. Debien uses the aptitude system, red-hat uses rpms, arch uses pacman, etc.08:44

patxno not really08:44

ikoniamadrid: startup speed is quiet subjective, the most common cause is the either hardware detection, or miss-configured network card tht takes a long time to get a dhcp address09:50

barfsterJordan_U: No response if shift is held down, however pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL shuts down the system normally with about 5x [OK]09:54
ouyesphlak_user, I think the problem is the ssid's name09:54
barfsterShould GRUB kick in before or after the resolution of the screen changes?09:54
phlak_userouyes: nope, did you fill in all the details like IP Address, netmask, gateway, DNS server etc? only then will the apply button become enabled09:55
ouyesphlak_user, it seems that non-english ssid is not supported by network manager09:55

J_BradyIf I install Ubuntu from the windows 7 desktop, will I be able to see if it autodetects both operating systems before choosing to install?11:28

abhijitwhat is a three way boot, J_Brady ?11:33
ikonia!install | J_Brady11:33
ubottuJ_Brady: Ubuntu can be installed in lots of ways. Please see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation for documentation. Problems during install? See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/CommonProblemsInstall - Don't want to use a CD? See http://tinyurl.com/3exghs - See also !automate11:33
J_BradyI mean, windows 7, windows xp and ubuntu all installed on the same machine, but installed to different hard drives.11:33
J_BradyI know you can also install more than one operating system to the same hard drive with partioning, but I would prefer seperate drives.11:34
ikoniaJ_Brady: that a fine configuration, no issue with 3 seperate drives11:34
J_BradyAnd I noticed your messages, thank you ikonia.11:34
theneoindiancan someone tell me a way to disable the front speakers of my laptop . i only need my headphone working11:37

theneoindianmy prob is basically this : my headfone jack is ruined , but when i somehow adjust the headphone knob inside it , i get the sound thru headphone , but the speakers still plays . the headphone is not sensed by alsa since the jack is ruined . now i need to disable the main spkeakers11:38

abhijit!10.10 | J_Brady11:44
ubottuJ_Brady: Maverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10, due October 2010 - Maverick is Not released and Not Stable, discussion and support in #ubuntu+111:44
quietonetheneoindian, alsmixer? I have two headphone jacks and I think it was working as you want.11:44
J_BradyYeah, unless I'm reading this wrong, the last version uploaded to sourceforge was 9.04 rev 129 on 4-22-09...   I think I see what you mean abhijit.... I looked at ubuntu.com and saw the announcement for 10.04 LTS.11:46
theneoindianquietone,  in alsamixer , the headphone control can't be manipulated . i think alsa the system doesn't sense the headfone since the jack is in a bad condidition11:46
J_BradyI didn't notice Long Term Service... 10.04 for the normal release is still beta?11:47
J_Bradyor there is no 10.04 that isn't lts, and the next version is just 10.10?11:47
abhijitJ_Brady, there is not 10.04 for normal release11:47
J_Bradyokay.  And so wubi doesn't work for 10.04 LTS.11:47
abhijitJ_Brady, it should.11:48
* bleah away11:48
ArchanaHow do i recover a deleted file ?11:48
abhijitJ_Brady, wubi is notihng to do with if its lts or not11:48
J_Bradywould you recommend installing 10.04 LTS, or waiting for 10.10?11:48
abhijitJ_Brady, deped on you. 10.04 is out so grab it and install it why to wait for next release? :)11:49
J_Brady... good point.11:49
J_BradyCan always scrub and install 10.10 then.11:49
rocket16J_Brady: Installing 10.04 will be better, because 10.10 will be automatically upgraded to, when it is released.11:49
J_Brady.... 10.04 LTS can be upgraded to 10.10 non-LTS?11:49
ArchanaJ_Brady, yes11:49
abhijitArchana, http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk11:50
rwwIt's not an automatic upgrade, actually.11:50

abhijitJimmio, if you continue then it will install packages which are successfully downloaded and continue. but if your select no then it will do nothing, reject all and close.12:48

janisozaurvalr: translated from polish, it should be called "cpu frequency monitor"13:05

J_Brady... I just installed 10.04 LST using Wubi.  Worked like a charm, actually.  Until one of the drives in my raid 1 array dropped out during reboot.  I booted (is that the right past tense there?  I bat into windows maybe?) into win7, so Intel Matrix Storage Manager could do a rebuild...  I'm guessing it's unrelated to the install.13:10

ActionParsnipwiktor: this is the english ubuntu channel13:12
J_BradyOne piece of information for everyone... Wubi has no problem (or appeared to have no problem) installing over an existing install of windows 7 and windows xp pro, on seperate drives.  My boot menu showed "previous version of windows", "windows 7" and "ubuntu"...when I selected ubuntu it went to the grub loader with the options windows 7 or ubuntu.  selecting ubuntu booted.13:12
bazhangwiktor, this is ubuntu support. chat in #ubuntu-offtopic13:12
shiv_where is 'sessions' ?13:13

Niglophow much of a difference is there between aptitude and pacman?13:14
J_BradyA separate question... does ubuntu have an easy to use tool to clone one ntfs file system to a different drive of the same size?13:14

bazhangNiglop, a question for #ubuntu-offtopic13:15
J_Bradyman dd is a program that will do that janisozaur?13:15
ActionParsnipshiv_: look in system -> preferences -> startup apps13:15

thruxton_hello, is it possible to install a package with wildcards? `apt-get install banshee*` for example?13:18
J_Bradyjanisozaur or waltzingalong... can dd or ntfsclone do that for the drive ubuntu is installed on?  I decided to go with the method of installing ubuntu as a file in my win7 filesystem as a test...and it's the win7 drive I want to clone.13:18
sdistefanohi all ; I'm getting software rendering with Intel GMA 3150... Any ideas on how to fix that?13:19
llutzthruxton_: aptitude understands wildcards, " aptitude install ~nbanshee' "13:19
janisozaurJ_Brady: you have ubntu installed on ntfs drive?13:19
janisozaurJ_Brady: oh, didn't read your whole message...13:19
J_BradyIt's installed as a file in my win7 ntfs filestructure... it said it was using ext4, so I assume it made a big lump file that win7 sees as just junk13:19
WaltzingAlongJ_Brady: using wubi?13:19
thruxton_llutz: ahh ok, ive never used aptitude! thanks I will give that a go13:19
lemonade_i want to change the desktop,not gnome or kde ,any good option?13:20
J_BradyYes, using wubi.13:20
thruxton_lemonade_: xfce4!13:20
WaltzingAlonglemonade_: xfce13:20
philinuxlemonade_: lxde is lightweight13:20
trojan_spikeJ_Brady, disk clone u mean??13:20
llutzthruxton_: that '~nbanshee'   stands for "all packages with banshee in name-field (~n)"13:20
janisozaurJ_Brady: you can boot using usb live stick, then your drives will be offline13:20
J_BradyYes, preferably...over trying to copy the root of the drive and hitting system files I can't touch or something.13:20

philinux!lxde | lemonade13:21
J_BradyI could burn a disc and go into liveboot I suppose.13:21
J_Bradywould liveboot have the dd or ntfsclone available?13:21
thruxton_lemonade_: not sure, it supports compiz and all that good stuff13:21
janisozaurJ_Brady: I didn't use CD in such a long time I've completely forgotten about that option. but yes, you could13:21
philinuxlemonade_: http://lxde.org/13:21
WaltzingAlongJ_Brady: could also install it if not, dd more likely than ntfsclone13:22
lemonade_philinux, it supports 3d?13:22
barfsterIs there an overview of the boot sequence of an installed system?13:22
J_BradyOkay then... I guess that'll be my plan.  Thanks guys.13:22
janisozaurJ_Brady: you might want to check virtualbox13:22
ubottuvirtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from the package 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox13:22
barfsterIs there an overview of the boot sequence of an installed system? In particular I am interested in the stuff before the stuff launched from /etc/init.d/13:23
ubottuThere are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications13:23
philinuxlemonade_: http://blog.lxde.org/?p=3013:23
janisozaurJ_Brady: non-free in above means non-open-source, it is free as in free beer ;)13:23
J_BradyRight... :P13:23
lemonade_gonna have a look,thanks all13:23
J_BradyWhat does it allow one to do though, specifically?13:23
janisozaurJ_Brady: it allows you to run "virtualized" OS within another. you can have windows and ubuntu, running inside of windows, simultaneously13:24
J_Bradywould it be windows running inside of ubuntu, or ubuntu running inside of windows?13:24
janisozaurJ_Brady: the other way round is also possible13:24
SolowI'm trying to ssh into my pc, but it keeps saying 'invalid password' (And the password is right). But it also says Solow@(ip here), while it should be wesley@(ip here) how can I change the username for ssh13:25

J_BradyIs it better than Wine for pc gaming on linux?13:27
monkey_dustJ_Brady, check this pdf for an introduction to virtualization => http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4653463/issue38_en.pdf13:27
janisozaurJ_Brady: it's different thing13:27
=== root is now known as Guest74240
J_BradyThanks monkey.13:28
ActionParsnipJ_Brady: theres also crossoveroffice and cedega for windows apps inc games but they both cost13:28
janisozaurJ_Brady: with wine you just translate system calls to native *nix. I ran warcraft 3 using wine faster then on windows. using virtualbox (or vmware), on the other hand, let's you install whole OS13:28
ActionParsnipJ_Brady: both have an appdb but if your apps are compatible and you need it then its worth the money13:28
J_BradyYeah... I would probably just boot into winxp rather than pay for cedega.  No offense to the developers, just... a reboot isn't that big an obstacle, even if they become less frequent.13:29
J_Brady... I assume when you use virtualbox to install xp, you go through the activation process normally...13:29
janisozaurJ_Brady: yes.13:30
ActionParsnipJ_Brady: a cedega is most likely cheaper than a windows license13:30
J_BradyI have a legitimate copy of SP3... are you allowed to install more than one copy of the OS to the same machine?13:30
janisozaurJ_Brady: what system are you using now?13:30
J_Bradycurrently win7... which is on the 30 day trial.13:30
joakimkAfter upgrading firefox, the flash player is messed up... I've tried reinstalling with "sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree" and restart FF, but no luck. Also, going to adobe.com for the install file fails, since FF can not handle the apt:// protocol. Any tips?13:30
J_Bradywinxp is installed, that's SP3 and legit... and installed Ubuntu 10.0413:30
ActionParsnipJ_Brady: i think you can install the home edition on 3 systems, i'd ask in ##windows13:30
joakimkbtw, this is Ubuntu 9.0413:31
janisozaurJ_Brady: does http://www.grc.com/securable.htm state "yes" above hardware virtualization?13:31
ActionParsnipjoakimk: dont use the adobe site for flash, flash is in the repo13:31
joakimkActionParsnip: ok... But going to Add/Remove software menu, and searching for "flash" gave 0 hits13:31
ActionParsnipjoakimk: if you give the output of:  dpkg -l | grep flash; dpkg -l | grep gnash; dpkg -l | grep swf    use http://pastie.org  I can advise13:32
