gen_cornwallisshould i upgrade from Windows ME to ubuntu?00:00
EdLesMannA quick Nautilus question. I am on Ubuntu Lucid and I have a need to have the sizes displayed in 2  decimal precision instead of 1 (eg 5.36K vs 5.4K) . I can't find anything on Google that tells me how to change it. Does anyone know if it is possible?00:00
jimi_What is the current ubuntu version?00:00
Ryan08I have a question. Can you run the netbook version alongside windows00:00
gen_cornwallisyes ryan00:00
indigo747Ryan08: easily, as far as I know00:00
linxehjimi_: lucid, 10.0400:00
EdLesMannjimi - Lucid 10.04 LTS00:01
aeon-ltdRyan08: yes its called dual booting00:01
=== Guest87490 is now known as 14WAAZWXP
Ryan08ok thanks00:01
indigo747EdLesMann: I had a project where I needed really accurate file sizes so I used wc through the command line00:02
michaelxqaeon-ltd: what dual booting fails?00:03
michaelxqaeon-ltd: is there a way to overlap it?00:03
EdLesMannindigo747 - That is how I am doing it now, but it would be really _really_ nice to have it shown in nautilis if possible00:03
EdLesMannI just couldn't ind an option00:03
ilovefairuzEdLesMann: not likely00:03
FlomasterJordan_U, here is my pastebin http://paste.ubuntu.com/469073/00:04
aeon-ltdmichaelxq: what do you mean?, you mean overwrite?, cos dual booting is running in parrallel00:05
indigo747EdLesMann: in Thunar, if you right click and select properties you can see how man bytes it is, nicely comma'd00:06
bidaboyhow to create a DNS?00:06
indigo747bidaboy: do you mean a DNS server?00:06
Jordan_UFlomaster: Ok, that looks correct. Is your user in the admin group? (look in or pastebin /etc/group)00:06
michaelxqaeon-ltd: with dual booting you mean choosing between the two which one to start or working both together?00:06
Dr_Willisbidaboy:  you mean run your own dns server? See 'bind' and the books written on its ussage. :)00:06
aeon-ltdbidaboy: you don't but you can run your oen00:06
AndyGraybealhow do i found out what filesystem i'm using?00:06
bidaboyjust the domaine nme00:06
fengshaun_how can I change the time it takes for my laptop to suspend?  I have put inactivity for suspend in power manager to never, but it still suspends after half an hour or so.00:07
Dr_WillisAndyGraybeal:  in what situatuion? 'sudo fdisk -l' shows filesystems and what they are.00:07
Jordan_UAndyGraybeal: "mount"00:07
aeon-ltdmichaelxq: dualbooting, when your machine powers up you are given a menu to choose between your OSes00:07
AndyGraybealDr_Willis: okay thank you; i'll try it00:07
ilovefairuzbidaboy: a domain name needs to be bought from a registrar00:07
Jordan_UDr_Willis: Actually fdisk doesn't show filesystem information, only partition table info (which includes some limited information about partition type that somewhat correlates to filesystem type most of the time).00:08
AndyGraybealJordan_U: thank you!00:08
EdLesMannindigo747 - nautilis will show byte size but I just need two decimal place and at first I was doing it manually, but now I wrote a script to do it using wc. again, it would just be nice to have it in the file manager. are there other file managers that might do it?00:08
Jordan_UAndyGraybeal: You're welcome.00:08
bidaboyilovefairuz,i heared that bind can do it, no?00:08
ilovefairuzbidaboy: no00:08
indigo747EdLesMann: I don't know, but if MidnightCommander might do it00:08
randy_bidaboy: you're trying to get your own domain name right, but you don't know how it all works?00:08
EdLesMannOK, well thanks for the help guys. I appreciate it. I will go bug the nautilis directly. :-)00:09
bidaboyrandy_, yes00:09
michaelxqaeon-ltd: if you installed windows at an external drive and ubuntu at your primary disk you can't boot your pc without your external drive..that's my problem...do you know any command to overlap that menu and start ubuntu?00:09
orshsoreau thnx solved the problem00:09
soreauorsh: I figured it would ;)00:10
orshsee u man and thnx a lot again00:10
randy_bidaboy: ok, here's the deal: you go to godaddy.com (or whatever is cheapest) and you find the name you want.  if its taken, you can auction for it if its available, otherwise, your out of luck00:10
michaelxqaeon-ltd: is there any command to start ubuntu, like 'start ubuntu'?00:10
randy_bidaboy: once you've got a name, you can assign a DNS server to your domain name through your registrar00:10
orshsoreau have a nice day,i must to go now00:10
randy_bidaboy: most registrars provide their own DNS services, though, and they are usually free00:10

randy_ilovefairuz: fine.  i was getting to the point, but ok.00:11
aeon-ltdmichaelxq: no, but i assume GRUB is on your external disk which is odd. you should have installed GRUB on your primary with ubuntu, then have windows on the external without the grub bootloader, or have both oses on one disk00:11

shawncm217ZykoticK9: No luck with the instructions in the link you sent.00:23
ZykoticK9eduardiyo, eth3 would "typically" mean the fourth ethernet card in your system.  Do you really have multiple ethernet adapters?00:24
ZykoticK9shawncm217, sorry, no other suggestions.  Good luck.00:24
soreaueduardiyo: I don't know but you probably need to find whatever file is telling it to look for eth3 and change it to the correct value. Perhaps try 'grep -Rn eth3 /etc'00:24
eduardiyoZykoticK9, no, but Ubuntu detect the broadcom bcm4311 like eth300:24

puffMr_Sonoma: what's your tivo questoin?01:20
BluesKajMr_Sonoma, understood , I suppose he has tivo desktop on windows01:20
puffMr_Sonoma: I can't say I'm expert at it, but I've been mucking with tivo stuff.01:20
puffBluesKaj: Yeah, that's what we ended up using.01:20
puffBluesKaj, Mr_Sonoma: I had coded up a script to fetch and reencode tivo files, but the big problem was the fetching... large files, and for some reason very, very slow...01:21
BluesKajpytivo works well on linux as well, puff...better actually , it gives more options for tivo file storage on one's pc01:21
puffBluesKaj, Mr_Sonoma: We theorize that you're not actually getting the raw file, but rather that the tivo is doing some on-the-fly reencoding, on a fairly lame CPU...01:22
puff BluesKaj: Good to know, but as I said, the problem was I'd use curl to fetch the file, it would run for a couple of hours and then time out.01:22
BluesKaji used curl isn't a01:23

ilovefairuzEliteXRay: package management and system configuration tools01:40
aldougilovefaruz: http://pastebin.com/YX1z30S001:40
edbianEliteXRay, fedora is more "pure" because red hat does not develop for it alone.  Ubuntu does develop for only themselves.  The notifications are a good example of this.01:40
Mr_SonomaBluesKaj, he wasnt able to see the drive in windows and thats the reason he is bringing it to me. the drive can be "seen" but isn't readable through windows01:40
nwidgerZykoticK9: sadly that post hasnt been much help.  ive already looked at /etc/init/mysql.conf, /etc/init.d/mysql and the files in /etc/rcN.d/ and everything looks fine.  i looked at the config files in /etc/mysql and they also look ok.  i tried changing the bind address in /etc/mysql/my.cnf to '' as some other people said that has fixed their problems with mysqld not starting up but sadly that didnt nothing, too.01:40

nwidgerZykoticK9: the fact that i see no error messages in any of the log files is also really frustrating01:41
edbianEliteXRay, The developments that red hat make are contributed to kernel mostly which is used jointly by every distro.  Although fedora does have a custom little differences.  I don't know about them as much because I don't use fedora.01:41

edbianEliteXRay, They're of equal quality in my opinion.01:41

EliteXRayexcuses my typos01:42
nwidgerZykoticK9: i dont know which files are actually being used by upstart.  the /etc/rcN.d/mysql files are just symlinks to /etc/init.d/mysql, which is just a wrapped to 'service start msql' it looks like01:42

jeraldhow can I change my my log in window..01:50
puffMr_Sonoma: Assuming that the files are stored internally as .tivo files, you can reencode them with ffmpeg.01:50
enav1give me a little break mom01:50
massomeones help me please, i have a synaptics touchpad in my laptop and in windows 7 i can make gestures like rotating images, zoom, with two fingers, but in ubuntu 9.10 i cant make these, 3 days ago i type a comand in the terminal for view the touchpad information and in the fingers tab show only one finger detected when i have two or three. I saw last week that synaptics make the linux gesture suit but i ca01:51
mas<mas> nt find the download link in the synaptics page. Sorry by my bad english01:51
puffMr_Sonoma: Though if pytivo can do it, you'd probably be better off.01:51
ilovefairuzjerald: change what? theme?01:51
jeraldyeah.. theme for my log in01:51
ilovefairuzmas: the gesture suit is not released yet01:52
jeraldilovefairuz, yeah login theme01:52
Mr_Sonomapuff, thanks. if i can simply mount the drive and use ffmpeg to re-encode then that'll work. I've saved the link to pytivo just incase. this is a one time thing so even if i have to use CLI utilities to get this done that's ok.01:52
ZykoticK9nwidger, does "sudo service mysql start" work properly?01:52
Mr_Sonomapuff, the object is solely to recover the saved data01:52
ilovefairuzjerald: not possibly in gdm 2, i think only the background can be changed01:52
masthanks, do you know when??01:52
nwidgerZykoticK9: yes it does01:52
ilovefairuzmas: no i don't01:52
erkmanedSee u, everrybody, I'm gonna to the #ubuntu-fre chan's :)01:52
nwidgerZykoticK9: im assuming when the pre-start script in /etc/init/mysql.conf is executed, it's executed as root?01:53
ZykoticK9nwidger, lol.  i got nothing man.  hopefully someone else has a suggestion!01:53
puffMr_Sonoma: well, like I said, this is assuming that the files on the drive are in the same .tivo format that you get when you download them with tivo to go or tivo desktop.01:53
ridini can't get to any websites01:53
jeraldilovefairuz,  yeah.. because when I used ubuntu 9.04, I can easily change the them..01:53
BluesKajMr_Sonoma,is the drive from his tivo or his pc?01:54
ilovefairuzridin: open a terminal and type: dig google.com01:54

BluesKajMr_Sonoma, is the tivo connected to your network?01:59
ilovefairuzflipp: install the desktop version01:59
ZykoticK9SGA|DiabetikCrys, yes there are, do you has an Ubuntu support question?  or want to help?  If not use #ubuntu-offtopic for just general chit-chat ;)01:59
Mr_SonomaBluesKaj, thats honestly the only reason i asked here. figured it was semi-ontopic since my question was the possibility of being able to mount the FS. I understand that the tivo FS is a modified ext202:00
Mr_SonomaBluesKaj, wish it was but its not.02:00
Hilikusthanks ZykoticK902:00
BluesKajyes afaik02:00
Filippk, but shouldnt i get some picture on my screen, it just stands there blinking the on button02:00
ZykoticK9Filipp, that sounds like plymouth might be failing!02:01

pickle_i accidentally removed my audio button from the taskbar, how do I add it?  thanks.02:02
ZykoticK9Filipp, to be clear - if you want a GUI interface install desktop then simply install services on it!  (much easier usually)02:02
ilovefairuzpickle_: alt+ f2, the type: gnome-volume-applet and press enter02:02
Mr_SonomaBluesKaj, ok thanks, when he gets the drive to me i'll check it out. might have to ask a few more questions once i see what i've got. like i said right now i'm asking questions to prepare for what i'm getting myself into since its a tech i've not played with before.02:02
ZykoticK9pickett_, to use the default.  right click / add to panel / indicator applet02:03
Filip0ZykoticK9 but since i have installed it, i figured i could give it a try02:03

Saturn2888I upgraded to Ubuntu Lucid and now when logging in, I find it takes at least 50 sec just to authenticate me to user and also a long time to authenticate me as root. Why is this?02:28
j800rbasically, with a fresh install with windows, things like mp3, avi formats and other stuffs are supported by default, with ubuntu, you have to install the restricted extras to get mp3, flash, java support etc02:29
aloonfn-Fkey virtual terminal is a blank screen , ive tried searching very hard but can't find out how to remedy this.02:29
j800rSaturn2888, have you installed all updates?02:29

jeraldj800r,  is restricted extras includes when you update?02:31
j800rno. you install it manually02:31

hypetechrandy_ I'm connecting my laptop to my wireless router as normal, then I'm using the ethernet port on the laptop to share the connection to a computer, and that works fine.  I also want to share to a second computer though, and when I hook the shared ethernet connection from the laptop into a switch, both clients won't work03:44
randy_hypetech: no big deal.  did you assign IP addresses manually?03:47
randy_hypetech: are you doing connection sharing through something like firestarter?03:47
wrektjetwiesshund,thats a helpful tip for the future. i think the problem was i was using the wrong case. it si case sensitive for file names? correct?03:47
shorttechHi guys any idea why I cant move my mouse between monitors???03:47
=== ross is now known as Guest85409
wiesshundwrektjet>>  Everything in linux is case sensitive03:48
hypetechrandy_ I tried that, the connection sharing in ubuntu creates a new 10. network while my router's network is 192., so I assigned manual 10. to both the clients I was trying to connect to the switch but they still wouldn't work at the same time03:48
hypetechI'm just doing sharing through NetworkManager03:48
randy_hypetech: yeah, connection sharing doesn't quite work right in Network Manager... reluctantly.  ok. let me guess, you assigned 192.168.(something).10 to *both* computers03:49
wrektjetwiesshund, right ok thnx. i usually just do e/thing lowercase for some reason i renamed this file in upper. there used to be an option in folder view that would show a text adress for the current folder but that seems to be gone in 10.04. i really liked that though03:49
wiesshundhypetech>> you didnt assign both pc's same addy did you?03:49
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
hypetechrandy_ no.  I mean the connection sharing creates a 10.x.x.x network and no I didn't give them both the same address :p03:49
randy_hypetech: ok ok, you understand of course why i would ask ;) just taking care of the easy stuff first ;)03:50
wiesshundwrektjet>>   ctrl L03:50
hypetechrandy_ no worries :)03:50
randy_hypetech: now, the way i would do it is much simpler than dealing with NetworkManager, even though it *seems* more difficult at first.  we can install and verify, rather quickly, through the command line, whether or not this works, which of course it will.  there are only a few steps to this.03:51

phanindrahow shall i edit /etc/fstab?03:56
randy_hypetech: there are (2) ways we can do this, depending on which one you would prefer.  would you like to (a) extend your network so that you don't have a sub-subnet for the switch or (b) would you like a true wireless bridge that allows DHCP to reach the connection-shared devices?03:56
randy_hypetech: wait, that was the same option worded differently.  the other option is a sub-subnet like you've been trying to do up to this point03:56
hypetechrandy_ whichever is easier, I can manually assign the addresses easily enough if necessary.  I don't need them on a different subnet than the main internal network03:57

LinuxFetusHey I would like to install Ubuntu have an old computer that's an 800 MHz AMD x86-based PC with 256 MB RAM and 30 GB HDD.  I burned a CD-ROM of it, inserted it in, made sure my BIOS was booting from a CD before the HDD.  However, when I started it up, the BIOS said something like: "Boot from ATAPI CD-ROM failed" very briefly before moving to the Windows ME loading screen.  Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance :)04:22

shorttechenav1, If I change to TwenView than everything will be the same in all monitors correct?04:22
mcurranDid you try to use a usb instead04:22
shockmounttest34: ok lol04:22
mcurranmaybe your optical drive has a loose connection or is bad, try checking connections or updating firmware for optical drive04:23
enav1shorttech: that is a display mode that apply to all monitor connected to your computer04:23
wrektjetdoes anyone know a simple way to automount all hdd's on startup?04:23
kschwangfelderanybody?  I have repeatedly googled my problem, so I think the irc chats are my last resort04:23
bobwest51anyone know where i can get  the " ndisgtk " package ?  i dont find it on  the install disk of lucid04:23
enav1shorttech: im using 2 monitors right now with twenview04:23
LinuxFetusmcurran: Was that toward me?04:24
mcurranndiswrapper sucks04:24
Jp82191ok let me shutdown then ill check the connectors04:24
smytheehm, do i need to wait in line? :) i have a question (newbie type of question) :)04:24
mcurranyes LinuxFetus04:24
bobwest51ok  how do it get my linksys  to work , please ?04:24
shorttechenav1, I have 3 monitors, but it should be the same result. Ill give it a shot.04:24
enav1Linux Fetus ??=????   LOL nice name04:24

bobwest51magicjack works but no internet04:25

shorttechenav1, 204:25
shorttechenav1, both are nvidia04:25
smythehey guys, i just installed ubuntu and i wanted to install epic, but in the ./configure step it warns me with that I need to download (preferably with apt-get) the ncurses-dev or ncurses-devel04:25
enav1same model i guess04:25
smytheanyone can tell me the command?04:25
LinuxFetusmcurran: I don't have access to the internet on that computer (it's really old and the OS is incredibly broken).  Is there a way to check to see if my CD-RW drive is working properly?  I mean, I can load CDs and stuff from Windows, I believe.04:25
thune3kschwangfelder: the workaround you performed to get XP running, just seems incorrect. Being someone who doesn't know how to install ubuntu on to this "broken" raid array, I personally would look for how to fix the original problem (maybe update bios).04:26
shorttechenav1, nope, unfortunately its not the same model04:26
enav1shorttech: go private04:26
rwwsmythe: sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev04:26
shorttechenav1, how??04:26
LinuxFetusmcurran: Yeah, my brother (the primary user of that computer) tells me that he gets CD's from games working all of the time.  I was just thinking that perhaps my computer is too dated for 10.04.04:26
smytherww thank you let me try that04:26
abhijitLinuxFetus, this page have some results have a look: http://www.google.co.in/search?sourceid=chrome&client=ubuntu&channel=cs&ie=UTF-8&q=Boot+from+ATAPI+CD-ROM+failed+ubuntu04:26
rwwsmythe: though if by "epic" you mean the IRC client, it's in the repositories anyway, so not much point in compiling it.04:27
mcurranDid you try doing the boot menu key at startup, and not just the default boot order, because that sometimes resets on old pc's04:28
LinuxFetusabhijit:  I don't think that post has any replies, correct?  I didn't install it yet, though (I was trying to boot live first).04:28
ownerHello. My Google Foo has failed me. I have a "Cricut Personal Electronic Cutter" and I want to find a way to use it with Ubuntu.04:28
abhijitLinuxFetus, ok04:28
wrektjetok b4 i destroy my fstab can i ask: can i just delete the line regarding /dev/fd0 ? i dont even have a floppy drive.04:28
LinuxFetusmcurran: Do you mean press the F-key that interrupts startup and select which device to boot from?04:28
mcurranI just had a PC that reset the boot order I set in BIOS on every restart, so I had to press F10 and select USB or CDROM04:28
bobwest51mcurran ,  what else  can ido besides ndswrapper?04:29
hemant_I am using lucid lynx on macbook pro (dual boot)04:29
hemant_I cant get the ctrl+alt F1-F6 working04:29
hemant_I just get a blank screen with a blinking cursor, no login prompt.04:29
LinuxFetusmcurran: I'll try that.04:29
mcurranwhat chip are you using?  type lspci | grep 80204:29
LinuxFetusmcurran: Was that chip question directed toward me?04:31
abhijit!who | mcurran04:31
ubottumcurran: 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 :)04:31
abhijityes this time I right!!!04:31

bobwest51but i have to reboot back into ubunto  to do that in terminal04:33
bobwest51this will take  lite years04:33
mcurranbebwest51 I need the chip info though, so type this in terminal and paste it here:  lspci | grep 80204:33
sweetpimcurran: its lsmod not lspci04:34
LinuxFetusmcurran: I tried pressing every f-key during the BIOS repeatedly - only DEL would do anything and it takes me to setup.04:34
smytheanyone can help? trying to install epic5-1.0* and although i have downloaed the ncurses-del after it prompted me to do so with a warning right after the ./configure when i did make04:34
bobwest51ok    i will  and come back  .  this will take like 5 mins   brb   thanks04:34
mcurransweepi, no actually it's not.04:34

mcurranno I just want the lscpi output for the wlan0 card, which would be narrowed down with grep '802.11' etc04:35
smytherww  asking me? if yes, i really don't know :) (newbie)04:35
bobwest51i dont know of any other than the directions on the web site04:35
rwwsmythe: just do "sudo apt-get install epic5". It's generally better to use our repository packages than compiling your own.04:36
bobwest51i cant find  nswrapper when i searched  drivers on  install disk04:36

mcurranso I'm using a broadcom chip 431804:36
sweetpimcurran: not all cards report that way04:36
LinuxFetusmcurran: I think the minimum recommendations or whatever were 1.0 GHz... and this is from 2000-ish and is only 800... do you think 10.04 wasn't designed with such old hardware/BIOS/fimware in mind?04:36

wrektjetwhats an easy way to see the currently mounted drives thier UUID and their sytem tyopes? thanks04:38
rwwsmythe: don't see what? you type that in the terminal, it installs it, you can run it with the command "epic5"04:38
mcurranjuboba maybe if you spelled it right04:38
smytherww thanks again (as i said, newbie)04:38
LinuxFetusmcurran: What version?   9 is > 650 MB and thus would use up a CD-R and not a CD-RW....04:38
smythehm, but it looks now like it needs a script...04:38
rwwmcurran: that is spelled right ;P04:38
LinuxFetusI think tried DSL and a couple others already but they didn't work.04:39
mcurranI used a USB04:39
rwwsmythe: If you're a newbie, epic probably isn't the easiest IRC client to use...04:39
smytherww hm04:39
smythewhat are you using?04:39
LinuxFetusAnd an obscure distro.  But yeah... do you have Linux Mint 9 on your Pentium II's?  Or an older version?04:39
rwwsmythe: irssi, but you probably want something graphical like xchat04:39
smytherww i have that already... but i think i am doing something else (among many other things) wrong...right now with this bitchx client i have a lot of 'disconnects' after idling..04:40
smytheit jumps servers/networks04:41
smythe'jumps' :)04:41
slinkeeyI have have somethingt hat I run in terminal and then leave up.. is there any way to make it more streamlined so it isn't hanging out in the way?04:41
rwwsmythe: using bitchx isn't a particularly good idea04:41
slinkeeyI know I can switch desktops04:41
smytherww  why?04:41
rwwubottu: bitchx04:41
ubottubitchx (also known as ircii-pana) was dropped from Debian and subsequently Ubuntu (see: http://dy.fi/afb). Consider using irssi or weechat instead.04:41
ActionParsnipyo yo yo04:41
enav1ye ye ye04:41
rwwsmythe: it's not supported any more, and has known security vulnerabilities04:41
smytheoh i see thank you!04:41
rwwSo yeah, if you're looking for command-line IRC clients, I'd recommend irssi or weechat, as the bot says.04:42
rww(sudo apt-get install irssi, or sudo apt-get install weechat)04:42
smytheand apt-get irssi?04:42
randy_smythe: yeah, i'm running irssi, not bad at all04:42
smytheok thanks04:42

smythenow...i have two (more serious i think) problems, one is memory use (it looks like it 'takes' up alot of memory and the usage increases gradually04:45
semi-nubok this is a semi-noobish question.  i was trying to remove univerasl access from my top panel and i removed the evolution mail checker thingy instead, and i couldnt get rid of universal access icon. any idea how i can remove universal access icon and get back my mail cheker ><04:45

smythewhat's with that? anyone knows?04:45
enav1ActionParsnip: gnome-search-tool04:46

smythethank rww04:46
smytheand one last question ( i hope)04:47
smytheit has to do with sound..04:47
smythewhen viewing youtube video or playing sound in general, the video color fades on and off04:47
ActionParsnipenav1: cheers dude04:48
smytheto gray and returns to full color and the sound is almost like buffered...can't increase the volume...it is distorted...04:48
semi-nubhi everyone. im having some problems running conky. when i set it to autostart at boot up it flashes and disappears. is there some kind of wait command i can use or anything to make it work right?04:48
ActionParsnipenav1: is it a seperate app or is it rolled into nautilus?04:48
enav1is a gnome tool suit04:49
enav1i guess is older than nautilus04:49
wrektjetwhat does the entry utf8 mean in fstab?04:49
shorttechenav1, thank you04:49
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: make a small script to make it wait until everything loads, then start it. 10 seconds should be enough04:49
enav1shorttech: hey buddy i thought you destroy your video settings LOL04:49
enav1shorttech: everything works great now?04:50
ActionParsnipwrektjet: its the encoding of the characters in the file names04:50
semi-nubActionParsnip: how would i do that? ><04:50
shorttechenav1, nope... I had to make another change and it worked..04:50
enav1ActionParsnip: i want to lear scripting under Linux i think is cool04:50
enav1shorttech: very good any way im jealous becuase i got only 2 display you got 3  damnit04:51
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: make a script someplace with the command:   sleep 10; conky &      after the usual bash header line:    #!/bin/bash      then add it to your startup items and remove the current conky startup item04:51
shorttechenav1, yep... I have 2, 22 INC and 1, 32 INC04:51
wrektjetActionParsnip, not totally clear what that means. but im guessing i dont want to enter it in my new line for automounting?04:51
ActionParsnipwrektjet: you can add it if you want04:51
enav1shorttech: i got 22" and 18.5"  samgsun04:52
ActionParsnipenav1: it's not hard, start with simple stuff, then build up04:52
wrektjetActionParsnip, aight. saving and rebooting now. fingers crossed04:52
enav1shorttech:  i will show you something insane04:52
ActionParsnipwrektjet: make sure you chmod the script as executable04:53
shorttechenav1, ok...04:53
enav1shorttech: http://is.gd/dINj704:53
enav1shorttech: im so jealous about that guy04:54
shorttechenav1, awesome!!!04:54
enav1awesome is not enough04:54
shorttechenav1, I wonder how he got the 3d to work with multiple screens04:54
semi-nubactionparsnip: like this? http://fpaste.org/LB78/04:54
wrektjetActionParsnip, umm i was editing fstab. so nothing to chmod right?04:54
enav1shorttech: just activate it  that is all04:54
ActionParsnipwrektjet: no, the chod was aimed at semi-nub04:55
shorttechenav1, I was never able to get my 3d to work with multiple screen on Mandriva04:55
shorttechenav1, I havent tried on ubuntu yet04:55
shorttechenav1, this is my first day with ubuntu04:55
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: yes but without the space in #!/bin/bash04:55
enav1i personally feel that mandrive have good video performance but with buggy video image04:55
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: you can't just add spaces because it takes your fancy04:55
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: you also don't need the semicolon04:56
semi-nubactionparsnip: heh im not sure how to make scripts reall04:56
enav1shorttech: ho good... you are wellcome here... this is a big comunity with trolls included :)04:56
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: you will also want an ampersand after conky so the process is backgrounded04:56
semi-nubactionparsnip: so remove semicolon and space and its correct? and an ampersand?04:57
enav1shorttech: let me give your a couple of links to pimp your ride04:57
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: http://fpaste.org/ie9V/04:57
shorttechenav1, thats why I decided to switch - the community for Mandriva its kind small04:57
ActionParsnipsemi-nub: then chmod +x the file so it is e(x)ecutable04:57
semi-nubactionparsnip:ok thank you very much i shall try04:58

shawnboyActionParsnip, ok, yeah. But 1) do I need to manually enter anything into resolv.conf and 2) do I need to somehow disable net manager?05:51
ActionParsnipshawnboy: if you set a static IP you  wont have to wait for DHCP to succeed but you will have to manually set DNS servers (you can use and and they are defined in /etc/resolv.conf). You can then remove network manager and such as they are now no use to you which will make your system use less resources and boot faster05:51

ubuntu456SalmonSam, natilus-share also has green rectangle beside it, I presume it shows it has been installed already05:52
ActionParsniprww: set it to static and you dont have to wait for dhcp. If its never going to move then this is a very viable option05:52
rwwshawnboy: and yes, if you're using /etc/network/interfaces you should remove network manager. It's not supposed to interfere, but it sometimes does.05:52
shawnboyrww, remove, or can I simply disable somehow at first to make sure all works ok?05:53
rwwActionParsnip: waiting for dhcp takes maybe a second or two for me, and it happens in parallel with other bootup stuff. I wouldn't be too concerned.05:53

uLinuxhmm never edit the grub with live cd06:08
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: yes, you need the 'alternate' install disk, it contains many drivers on the local cd that the normal installer doesn't have, but you don't get the pretty install interface (anaconda instead)06:09
ActionParsnipuLinux: you'll just mount the partition using the places menu then run: gksudo nautilus    You can then access you partition via it's UUID in /media and edit the file, its that simple06:09
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: although i can't guarantee it will work for you06:09
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: just out of curiosity, the disk is visible in BIOS right?06:10
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: I just ran the alternate cd I have, and it still did not see a hard drive.  do I have to alert it that I need access to these extra drivers, or does this mean that it probably won't work?06:10
kschwangfelderyeah, the bios sees it06:10
kschwangfelderit boots xp just fine06:10
kschwangfelderbut with xp, I had to use a floppy to introduce a driver to see the SATA disk06:11
ActionParsnipkschwangfelder: your fancy controller may need extra modules06:11
uLinuxActionParsnip:  does it mount the partition automatically?06:11

disturbedmimekschwangfelder: hmm, i didn't need to do anything other than tell it that i wanted to create a raid interface, are the drives on separate hardware controllers06:11
kschwangfelderActionParsnip: can you elaborate?  how do i get these modules/introduce them during the install?06:12
ActionParsnipdevin: ok then thats the grep running, it lists the processes running containing the word fret (case insensitive)06:12
pipeepI have a friend with a bcm43xx that keeps dropping out06:12
ActionParsnipkschwangfelder: it depends on the controller you use, there is no single answ06:12
pipeepdo you think it would be a good idea for me to suggest she try ndiswrapper?06:12
ActionParsnipuLinux: using the places menu, yes06:12
devinActionParsnip, i should add that system monitor lists amarok as a zombie process after i quit it06:12
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: I am not sure I understand the question.  there are two pairs of sata interfaces.  one is the promise SATA378, and the other is VIA or something like that06:12
ActionParsnipdevin: then kill it off06:12
devinActionParsnip, it can't be killed06:13
ActionParsnipkschwangfelder: run: lspci   it wil say and you can web search for the controller to find guides06:13
ActionParsnipdevin: kill -9 PID06:13
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: ok, so are both hard drives using the same controller or are they on separate controllers? if they are on separate controllers, try moving them to the same controller06:13

kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: no, sorry.  I may have not been clear.  i meant that xp is on the drive where I want to but ubuntu.  sorry if I was not clear06:14
kschwangfelderActionParsnip: from where do I run lspci, is this from the live CD?06:15
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: oic, ok in that case, boot off the live CD, run an 'lspci' or some type of hardware inspection tool, figure out what hard drive controller you have, then determine which kernel module you need to either enable or d/l and install, then start the installer normally06:15
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: after enabling the driver of course...06:16
ActionParsnipkschwangfelder: in a terminal. Press CTRL+ALT+T to fire one up06:17
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: ok, so this is getting into unfamiliar waters, so let me make sure I understand.  I run the liveCD, open a terminal, run lspci, figure out which module I need and get it via apt-get.06:17
ActionParsnipdevin: no, the PID, the PID is the leftmost number in the identifying line06:17
kschwangfelderwill the installer then have access to that module06:17
=== carlos is now known as Guest32373
devinActionParsnip, i have no idea what you are talking about, but anyway, this time when i quit amarok it didn't do the zombie thing, and then when i started fretsonfire it started up with no problem06:17
ActionParsnipkschwangfelder: you'll run lspci, make a note of the controllers ship then get online to search for it and how to make it run under linux06:18
ActionParsnipdevin: the PID is a number given to a process and ALL OSes use them06:18
ActionParsnipdevin: if you run:  ps -ef | head -n 15     you will see the colomn headers, intead of the name, you can use the PID06:19
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: correct, you may also want to check /etc/modules in the fresh install to ensure that the module is loaded, it may also require a grub call06:19
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: its likely that if someone else has run into this, that they have documented it on a wiki so that you can follow along06:19
kschwangfelderActionParsnip/disturbedmime:  okay, I will try this suggestion.  booting liveCD as we speak.06:19
devinActionParsnip, ok so PID is like another way of specifying the program? i don't get it.  so it seems to me the problem is that amarok and fretsonfire are somehow interfering with one another06:19
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: grub is the bootloader, correct?  what do you mean by i might need a grub call?06:20
devinActionParsnip, because fretsonfire doesn't have that audio problem after amarok is quit06:20
ActionParsnipdevin: yes, its the identifiier of the process, computers dont use words, they use numbers. The kernel is always process 0 (or it may be 1) so if you want to manipulate a process you will need its PID (PID stands for [P]rocess [I][D]entifier)06:21
flomasterI tried googling this, but came up empty.  can I assign a Fkey to open an application  like pressing ctrl+F6 will open the app?06:21
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: yes, grub is the bootloader (the program that lets you pick ubuntu or windows)06:21
ActionParsnipdevin: maybe amarok is tying up stuff. Do you use KDE?06:21
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: you probably won't need to mess with grub, and if you do, the package manager should take care of that as part of the install06:21
devinActionParsnip, amarok is KDE but the rest of my system is gnome i think. I'm a noob with ubuntu06:22

devinActionParsnip, let me clarify that i just today added an entry to the fstab file to automatically mount the drive:  /dev/sda2 /mnt/macosx hfsplus user,noauto 0 0 and as far as i can tell the "user" part was supposed to give me permissions but it doesn't, so i'm confused06:32
ActionParsnipdevin: try: /dev/sda2 /mnt/macosx hfsplus user,noauto,uid=1000 0 0          should give your user access06:34
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime/ActionParsnip: i ran lspci, and no surprises, the promise sata378 drivers are the ones it lists for my hard drive.  the weird thing is that in the disk utility, it is aware of the hard disk and would allow me to partition if I wished06:34
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: hmm, then what issue does the installer have?06:34
disturbedmimehooray, found the issue with archive.ubuntu.com, stupid mtu issue with vmware06:35
kschwangfelderthe installer does not see the hard disk.  it shows no available hard disks for install06:35
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: but gparted does?06:35
bockHey i know this is total newb stuff but where can i view installed programs like the cairo dock without being in synaptic06:35
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: yes06:35
kschwangfelderit sees the the ntfs partition for xp and the unallocated part where I want to put ubuntu06:36
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: hmm, haven't run into that, does 'fdisk -l' look like it can see the hard drives?06:36
devinActionParsnip, thanks, i'm going to restart and see if it worked06:37
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: no, it lists no partitions06:37
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: check this out http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=726546 looks like it may be that your sata disk isn't in the primary slot, sounds like a bug in the installer06:38
dumb_is_foreverquestion: is there a good recommended disk encryption program for 10.04 LTS?06:38
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: do you mean in terms of teh two available cable connections?06:39
dumb_is_foreverand does ubuntu support usb 3.0?06:39
devinActionParsnip, bad news, my mac partition isn't even showing up at all now06:39
ActionParsnipdevin: you'll need to play with the mounting options. Running stuff like amarok as root is a really bad idea06:40
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: yeah, basically the disk would need to be in sata0 vs sata1 (or sata1 vs sata2)06:40
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: long story short, try changing the cable to the other sata port on the mobo06:40
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: ok, I read the discussion just now.  I am turning off the computer, and I will move to the other slot06:41
devinActionParsnip, why didn't the automount work?06:41
dumb_is_foreverDanielsada: do you know much about ubuntu disk encryption?06:41
devinActionParsnip, and why is it when i tried to mount it through disk utility that it says it's mounted but it's not showing up anywhere?06:42
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: I was connected to the secondary slot.  just switched, let's see what shakes out06:42
DanielSadadumb not much... but i dont really think its that necesary06:42
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: crossin' fingers06:42
bullgard4[screen on a remote computer] My ssh connection showed: "Write failed: Broken pipe." I re-established the ssh connection. '~$ ps aux' shows that the processes screen and irssi still exist. How can I get Irssi back as my display image?06:43
dumb_is_foreverdaniel, pro'ly true. Just wanted a bit more secured laptop in case it's stolen or lost06:43
bastidrazorbullgard4: if only one screen session running type: screen -x    ..if multiple: screen -list   then screen -dr *which screen you see listed*06:44
sweetpidevin: paste the line from fstab06:44
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: no luck.  it still sees nothing when I get to the prepare partitions screen. I had high hopes.06:45
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: damn06:46
DanielSadathat's a good poin06:46
DanielSadabut a strong password on the bios06:46
devinsweetpi /dev/sda2 /mnt/macosx hfsplus user,noauto,uid=1000 0 0 but i tried commenting it out just now and mounting again thru disk utility and it mounted to /media/Macintosh HD so should I change the line to that?06:46
DanielSadaand in the ubuntu sistem06:46
DanielSadawill do that well06:46
bullgard4bastidrazor: '~$ screen -x; There are several suitable screens on: 19890.pts-1.no  (26.07.2010 05:58:16)   (Attached);  16217.pts-1.no  (25.07.2010 20:15:21)   (Detached); Type "screen [-d] -r [pid.]tty.host" to resume one of them.' How can I kill the detached suitable screen?06:46
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: I think a good, hearty 'blimey!' is in order06:47
dumb_is_foreverdaniel so, is the ext4 file system is natively encrypted then?06:47
DanielSadadumb, not by itself06:47
DanielSadabut if you protect the bios06:48
DanielSadato block CD and USB protection06:48
DanielSadaCD and USB boot sorry06:48
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: how about this post, another good idea, i have actually run into this issue before, although it didn't present like this http://www.computing.net/answers/linux/installers-cant-find-hard-drive/30072.html06:48
DanielSadaand put a strong password in your linux06:48
dumb_is_foreverohh ic06:48
dumb_is_foreverthanks for the tip06:48
bastidrazorbullgard4: screen -wipe numbershere.pts-1.no06:48
sweetpidevin: well it all depends where you want it. noauto is what stopped it from mounting at boot btw06:48
DanielSadaand not installing any remote login services06:48
DanielSadabut thats really hard :P06:49
DanielSadaAND put a password on the bios06:49
dumb_is_foreverI'm not even trying that :)06:49
lwizardlif I was wanting to setup a cron job to automatically backup files for a folder. what would be the best guide to learn how to do it06:49
devinsweetpi so should i remove "noauto" or put in "auto" instead?06:49
DanielSadaso you can edit, but only you06:49
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime:  hmm, that sounds interesting.  what is ahci mode?06:50
sweetpidevin: just take out noauto06:50
bastidrazorbullgard4: if you screen -dr numbers.pts-1.no    and connect to one that you want to kill ctrl+a (release) then k06:51
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: its the new sata protocol, there should be an 'ide' mode available which keeps compatibility with older drives06:51
sweetpidevin: and make sure the mount point exists06:51
dumb_is_foreverdaniel, k thanks. I will give it a shot06:51
bastidrazorbullgard4: that will kill that screen session06:51
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime:  at the moment, I am in IDE mode06:51
kschwangfelderthe other option is RAID mode06:51
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: yeah RAID is no bueno, you can try it in AHCI mode just to see if it will show up, although you may need to tweak XP to get it to work in that mode06:52
sweetpidevin: you should unmount it first, then just "mount /mnt/macosx". no need to reboot to test permissions06:52
devinsweetpi it says it's mounted but it's not on the desktop or in places, where is it?06:52
sweetpidevin: you need to have it in /media for it to show up that way06:53
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: wait, I don't actually have AHCI mode.  the two options I get are IDE and RAID.  it could be that I need to update the bios.06:53
devinsweetpi thanks i'll fix that06:53
RealEyesAnyone suggest anything better than Gwibber?06:53
disturbedmimekschwangfelder: yeap, im surprised that it supports RAID and not AHCI, interesting...06:53
DanielSadaRealEyes yeeeah!06:53
disturbedmimeusually its the other way around06:53
kschwangfelderdisturbedmime: it is an older mobo06:53
DanielSadaRealEyes Use TweetDeck06:53
kschwangfeldercirca 2003ish06:54
Am4noRealEyes.I recommend Turpial06:54
DanielSadaRealEyes Is a loooooot beter than gwiber06:54
DanielSadaRealEyes anddd pretty =D06:54
devinsweetpi it won't unmount06:55
sweetpidevin: /dev/sda2 right?06:55
JarheadHi, i need help with a simple thing!06:56
xanguawhat does tweetdeck has that gwibber doesn't DanielSada ¿¿06:56
DanielSadaJarhead, what happend?06:56
devinsweetpi yeah i've been using disk utility to mount and unmount so what's the command line to unmount?06:56
Jarheadi need to do this :  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager-openvpn/+bug/112248/comments/2606:57

devinsweetpi /dev/sda2 on /mnt/macosx type hfsplus (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,uid=1000,user=devin)06:59
devinsweetpi and i don't want it to be rw just r06:59
sweetpidevin: close any programs accessing /mnt/macosx07:00
sweetpidevin: then it would be ro07:00
devinsweetpi nothing's accessing it, and how do i change it?07:00
sweetpidevin: in fstab07:00
RealEyeswhere can I get TweetDeck?07:01
sweetpidevin: is disk utility open?07:01
devinsweetpi yes i know it's in fstab, but i don't know exactly what to put in07:01
devinsweetpi i closed disk utility and the terminal is still telling me "segmentation fault"07:01
niohello all07:02
xanguain tweetdeck's web RealEyes07:02
sweetpidevin: well lets not change fstab until we can fix that07:02
RealEyesits for ubuntu?07:02
xanguammm i don't thin that you read what we say to you RealEyes .....well anyways....good luck07:03
sweetpidevin: lsof | grep /mnt/macosx07:03
c00lryguyCan someone help me out? [10.04] Every time I open synaptic, update manager, software center, or ubuntu tweak.. the app will pop up for a split second then close. I have tried restarting and ect07:03
RealEyesxangua, you guys were talking about adobe air...07:03
RealEyesdo i need to get adobe air or tweetdeck? lol07:04
pryordaJul 25 18:38:00 pryorda -- MARK --07:05
pryordagetting that in my messages log07:05
devinsweetpi i figured it out - i saved fstab with the new mount point before unmounting, so i changed it back and it unmounted07:05
xanguaRealEyes: both, tweetdeck is an adobeair app07:05
blinkhi. i was wondering, how can i disable screensaver?07:05
RealEyesalright, i see07:05
sweetpidevin: ok. as for the ro option, just add it where you had noauto07:05
rwwpryorda: it's normal, just the rsyslog daemon indicating that it's still running07:05
nioi am facing a problem Kernel panic-not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel07:06
pryordathats annoying07:06
pryordarww: anyway to disable07:06
alexxvillewhat is the best way to learn the ways of linux as a somewhat beginner and the shell commands (linuxcommand.org) but as an example?07:06
xanguaRealEyes: you first need to the enable parther repository07:06
devinsweetpi so like this: /dev/sda2 /media/macosx hfsplus user,ro,uid=1000 0 007:06
sweetpidevin: yes07:06
xangua!partner | RealEyes07:06
ubottuRealEyes: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »07:06
xanguaonce enabled do: sudo apt-get install adobeair07:07
RealEyesi ran that line and there were no errors07:07
devinsweetpi the thing uid=1000 was supposed to give me permission to get into my music folder, but it didn't work07:08
rwwpryorda: look for "$ModLoad immark" in /etc/rsyslog.conf and put a # in front of it07:08
RealEyestweetdeck's site says that it's installing but, i dont believe its doing anything07:08
pryordarww: sweet07:08
pryordai will check it07:08
rwwpryorda: you'll probably have to restart rsyslogd with "sudo service rsyslog restart" afterwards07:09
pryordarww: #$ModLoad immark  # provides --MARK-- message capability07:09
pryordait was already commented out07:09
sweetpidevin: echo $UID07:09
pryordarww: im not the typical ubuntu user it07:09
devinsweetpi it's 100007:10
sweetpidevin: try umask=022 instead07:10
c00lryguyCan someone help me out? [10.04] Every time I open synaptic, update manager, software center, or ubuntu tweak.. the app will pop up for a split second then close. I have tried restarting and ect07:11
rwwpryorda: odd. Might be turned on somewhere else in there or in /etc/rsyslog.d/ or something, then. I have it commented out and don't get --MARK-- messages, so...07:11
devinsweetpi no change07:11
pryordarww: im thinking that07:11
kenAuto eth0 keeps disconnecting and then reconnecting. What can i do?07:11
sweetpidevin: did you remount it?07:12
pryordagrep -R inmark /etc/*07:12
devinsweetpi the problem has always been that only certain folders are unavailable, so i can get into my ebooks folder just fine, but not my music, pictures, documents, downloads, etc07:12
rwwpryorda: it's immark, not inmark07:12
devinsweetpi root can access them, but not any other user07:13
sweetpidevin: what are the permissions/ownership of those directories?07:13
pryordarww: yeah its only showing one instance07:14
devinsweetpi when I look it "properties," the only difference on the music folder etc is that under "Group," Folder access is "none"07:14
sweetpidevin: ls -al path_to_good_dir; ls -al path_to_bad_dir07:14

pryordai dont think so07:18
devinsweetpi the bad directory says ls: cannot open directory blah blah Permission denied07:18

rwwpryorda: for syslogd, you'd want to edit /etc/default/syslogd and add "-m 0" to the SYSLOGD variable. I have no idea for the others.07:20
niois this a problem related to initrd or any setting Kernel panic-not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel07:21
rwwpryorda: personally, I'd remove the others and stick with rsyslogd, since it's the default07:21

bullgard4What is the main reason to release Ubuntu version 10.04.1 compared with 10.04?07:23
blinkone more thing before i leave.. how can i auto-connect to my wireless network?07:23
blinkeverytime i have to do manually07:24
sweetpidevin: i doubt it, ill keep looking for a way. meanwhile maybe ask in ##linux about the permissions. whatever you do though. dont actually chmod/chown the drive in linux07:24
devinsweetpi do you know why it is that root has access to those folders but other users don't?07:24
gogetablink: well it ask for youur keyring07:24
sweetpinio: i didnt see your question07:24
rwwbullgard4: 10.04.1 is 10.04 plus the updates that have come out since then. LTS point releases like 10.04.1 are released so that people don't have to install all of the updates that come out over the (five year) lifecycle of the LTS.07:24
bullgard4blink: Install NetworkManager. (Ubuntu installs it by default.)07:24
gogetablink: if you gave it no keyring it just connects07:24
devinsweetpi that's why i was running my music programs as root, so they could get to the music07:25
sweetpidevin: yes, because ownership doesnt matter to root07:25
pryordarww: how do you view the auto starting services07:25
rwwpryorda: no idea. Ubuntu switched to upstartd recently, and I haven't looked into how it works.07:25
sweetpidevin: i know. but its really a bad idea. ill try to find you a way. give me a few min07:25
rwwwell, switched fully recently. it's used it in varying amounts for a while.07:25
devinsweetpi ok i'll start asking on the linux channel07:25
gogetablink: normaly ater you configure the network once it gets added to auto connect look in prefs network conenction if you did it wrong the first time or something the wrong key might be in there07:26
gogetablink: deleting it from there will reset that07:26
blinkgogeta: my wireless network has no key07:27
gogetablink: then you gave it a keyring on your fist install and its askin for that07:27
blinkgogeta: plus when the system starts, it just list the wireless network which i have to click on it in order to connect07:27
gogetablink: maybe eing its open its not auto connecting07:28
gogetablink: go to prefs network connection slect your network in wireless hit edit and check connect auto07:29
gogetablink: auto conenct07:29
niosweetpi i had a problem during boot error occurs Kernel panic-not syncing: No init found. Try passing init= option to kernel07:29
gen_cornwalliswhen you chose to encrypt home folder during ubuntu install what encryption does it use?07:29
rwwgen_cornwallis: ecryptfs07:30
gogetablink: it should just conect to that network when you start up from now on07:31
blinki am using ubuntu 10.4, and i can't see the prefered network box07:32
gogetablink: system>prefs>network connections then hit the wireless tab you will see your network in te list slect it press the edit bution then in the chck box slect connect automaticly07:33

etraskHello everyone. I was wondering what exactly is the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu (or any OS, really, though I'll try to keep it on topic)07:57
PimpnastyI guess not lol07:58
LinuxPhreaketrask: 32 will work on both 32 and 64 bit cpus. 64bit only works on 64 bit cpus. 64bit will run 64bit programs07:58
weive64bit got more RAM07:58
gogetaisaraX: did it finish the install for you07:58
rwwetrask: 64-bit processors use 64 bit registers, which allows 64-bit operating systems to access more memory, whereas 32-bit ones are limited to 4GB of system memory (unless they use hacks like PAE)07:59

rwwetrask: wikipedia does a good job: "a small amount of storage available on the CPU whose contents can be accessed more quickly than storage available elsewhere". Notably, they're used to store memory locations.08:01
rwwThisDB: this is not particularly good advice on distributions with package management.08:01
ThisDBRww I see.08:01
reverebeerno make install then08:01

yakubwhen I hit 'F3', I would like it to output the pound sign # ( having bad key issues).  how do i do that ?08:02

gouri'm (arch)linux user and my neighbour is buying new laptop...asking which windoze to put on...i told him i'll give him free OS :-) now, he is mostly interested for internet etc. so i wonder if ubuntu netbook edition may be better option than the desktop one?09:06
SunTzugour give him what works for him; test several dists.  show him much.09:06
SunTzugour make up several live-dvd's09:07
rwwscoopex: assuming you're using 10.04, anyway. Substitute karmic, jaunty, etc. if you're not09:07
SunTzugour so that he can spend a few hours with each without changing hd09:07
gourSunTzu: i believe archlinux is too complicated for him...ubuntu looks like great option... the choice is between netbook & desktop edition?09:07
gourSunTzu: i'm into dl-ing bunch of livedvds...09:08
rwwgour: have him try both. The only significant difference is the interface, so see which he prefers with the LiveUSBs09:08

SunTzugour k09:08
gourSunTzu: ok09:09
SunTzugour that is the essence of LinuxTao :)09:09
Jordan_Ugour: I haven't messed with the netbook edition much but I'd say go with the desktop edition, IIRC the netbook interface is optimized to allow you to do a few things very easily on a small screen (and not much else). Not that there is anything you *can't* do with UNR, but I think it would be awkward.09:09
gourSunTzu: it's...but for total beginner, i consider ubuntu is good choice09:09

ubottudemoneye: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.09:45
AdvoWorkhow come when doing df -h it shows a certain % free space, yet i delete something, and its not instant before it changes the %09:46
soreaudemoneye: even 'doesnt work' (in all it's vagueness) is better than 'gayish' which is highly undescriptive09:46
mats990oCean_ the problem is i dont know WHEN this happend... i didnt used it lately.. last things i installed is conky and i removed some old kernels, but this shuldnt have something with kernel...09:46

ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD10:20

MegavivHello, I'm trying to fix a flash-player missing sound problem of a friend of mine10:30
jukebox-zero_yerushalmi basically it's an unecessary long name for your harddisk. When grub goes to start your system, it looks for your hard drive using that, but for some reason isn't recognizing it.10:30
MegavivDo you know anything on how to run the command: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1 # Flash expects /tmp/.esd/socket to exist. sudo mkdir -p /tmp/.esd/ sudo touch /tmp/.esd/socket10:30

Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: The hard drive upon which  Ubuntu is installed is actually an SDHC card; I use my internal hard drive as a swap partition.10:31
Megavivas a solution to the problem: "# Flash also looks for /usr/lib/libesd.so.1"10:31
jukebox-zero_yershalmi hmm. i see.10:32
Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: Could there be a hardware problem with the card? That's my biggest fear.10:32
YerushalmiSoftware problem would be less... problematic... because then I could just put the card in another computer copy everything I needed and reinstall ubuntu. I don't have anything irreplaceable.10:32

YerushalmiMegaviv: Aha! I do, yes, but your text only came out as random vowels with chupchikim on top.10:34

rwwYerushalmi: Megaviv didn't encode it properly, so most people probably didn't see it10:34
MegavivOK, that makes sense. So, I'll repeat the issue know, in hope you have a fitting solution.10:34
envyGI'm trying to remember the name of Gnome Media Player -- Totem isn't what I'm looking for. Something minimal. I used it once. (I know there is VLC too). ;o10:35

jukebox-zero_yerushalmi is this a pc or a notebook or a netbook or what?10:36
rwwenvyG: https://launchpad.net/gnome-media-player -> this one?10:36
Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: Netbook.10:36
MegavivThat's what Flash claims: # Flash also looks for /usr/lib/libesd.so.1 and as I understood the solution is to run the command: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libesd.so.0 /usr/lib/libesd.so.1 How do I do that, then?10:36

jukebox-zero_yerushalmi, when you did the install do you remember what the grub install called it vaguely I mean?10:37
rwwenvyG: It looks like it's not in Ubuntu before 10.10, so you'll need to use the PPA link on that page10:37

Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: Mmm. I'm trying to remember. I'm pretty certain sdb1.10:38
ikoniaaibo: then how do you know it's working ?10:38
ikoniaaibo: if you can't connec tto it......10:38
Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: sda is likely my internal hd, I assigned the entire thing as swap, and sdb therefore is my external disk, which I assigned as an ext# of some kind.10:38
ikoniaaibo: ok, so look at the logs, to see if your connections are actually hitting the ssh damon10:38
jukebox-zero_okay, the instructions i'm gonna post are what I remember for harddisks but if your notebook supports booting from SDHC don't see why it wouldn't work.10:38
YerushalmiI'm fairly certain. If it did it sensibly and didn't skip a letter for no reason :p10:39
Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: Awesome, thanks10:39
jukebox-zero_http://paste.ubuntu.com/469248/ in your case replace hdX,Y with what you remember.10:39
MegavivDoes anybody have any idea how to run a sudo command, it's for solving some flash player missing sound problem on Win 7 of a friend of mine.10:39
aiboikonia, which logs?10:40
rwwMegaviv: open the terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and put it in there?10:40
jukebox-zero_if anyone more advanced than me wants to take a look at that I'd appreciate it. Rusty on this one.10:40
ikoniaaibo: the sshd security logs and syslog10:40
YerushalmiWhat should go in setprefix and setroot?10:40
YerushalmiMy external hard disk?10:40
Yerushalmii.e. my boot drive?10:40
jukebox-zero_yerushalmi ls should pop up some choices for you. pick the one that looks familar10:41
YerushalmiThe choices were (hd0), (hd0,1), (hd1), and (hd1,1). No sd(a/b/c)10:42
linux_just for you10:42
jukebox-zero_hmm hd0,1 is probably your hard disk. so with it being an sdhc card I'm not sure. Do you have more than one partition on your harddisk?10:42
Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: Nope.10:43
jukebox-zero_yerushalmi than I would try hd1,110:43
YerushalmiInterestingly, when typing "set" it gives me "prefix=(hd0,1)/boot/grub" and "root=hd0,1" regardless of what I had typed10:43
demonzenemybro.. i have vivotek ip camera ip7330 but i can not recording. How can i do that?10:44
YerushalmiIn any case, I've tried both (hd0,1) and (hd1,1) for both, and then the next step - ls /boot - gives me the error "unknown filesystem"10:44
azoriushow do I decrease the run lvl in ubuntu?10:45
blitzoi have a question about the appearance preferences in gnome: i am using an image from my camera.  it removes crops about 15% of the image around the outside.  no matter how small i make the image, it still crops, and then expands it to fill my screen.  anybody ever heard of this?10:45
blitzoazorius, ubuntu doesn't use run levels10:46
jukebox-zero_Yerushalmi, honestly I'm a little boggled. Never did like the grub recovery, and I've never attempted to boot from anything other than my primary HD. What I would suggest from here if it were me is to download and burn the super grub boot disk and pick the option that says find any grub.conf file even if mbr is overwritten. it won't fix the problem, but it will let you get to your data.10:46

aiboikonia, nothing in syslog/auth.log10:48
azoriusblitzo I am a noob so I have no clue how to fix your image issue10:48

Megavivback to rww: in response to your suggestions, I should state two facts: the first is that the problem I'm trying to solve is my friend's who has Win 7 and not any UNIX based OS. Secondly, I tried running this command myself in the cmd of my Win 7, but it didn't even recognize it... I'll retry it, this time differently, according to a new idea popping into my mind, but it doesn't sound promising.10:52

Yerushalmijukebox-zero_: That was really weird, I must say. I can't imagine what would cause that.

aiboikonia, possibly apparmor did it10:57

TheEskimomick_: Does windows see 7 gigs or 60 gigs through mycomputer?11:43
dreamxrye, yes it's nice to know... anyway I think my system has some other problems too, since one of the things I tried was creating a new user (with no .profile of course) and it was giving me problems too11:43

ryedreamx, so is there anything left to fix?11:45
airtonixgazzzmoly, well you can continue and install anyway, or wait for gpg key so you can be sure the software you are downloading hasn't changed since it was uploaded to the server11:45
gazzzmolygot the key now what11:45
TheEskimomick_: The correct way to check would be through windows disk manager first. I don't think gparted supports working on whatever format the vbs dynamic images are in11:45

DRMacIverI'm having some DNS configuration issues. My DNS servers are being set to the right ones for the network, and dig, nslookup, host, etc. all seem to be using them, but names assigned by the local DNS server are not resolving in other commands: ssh, ping, web browsers, etc. The root issue seems to be that gethostbyname is returning the wrong answer, but I can't figure out why.11:53
gazzzmolyairtronix: yes  i get an error11:53
airtonixgazzzmoly, are you using lucid (because that repo doesn't actually have any packages for lucid)11:53
gazzzmolyairtronix    is that the new version11:53

ksbalajiI lost ubuntu while upgrading from 8.04 to 9.10.Power failure! Aptitude asks to do dpkg --configure -a . But, dpkg is unable to work with readonly files (locked?) -disconnected for sometime now.12:54
jribsiddhion: whatever you want.  I'd start with official documentation12:54
siddhionjrib, this is all nonsensicle stuff. ok12:54
ceacyI've got a problem with my MacBook Pro under Lucid Lynx12:54
jribsiddhion: or you can ask here and wait for someone willing to do it for you.  As I said, these rules aren't enabled by default, this is because of something you either installed or did12:55
ceacysince i've upgraded to Lucid, the dimming keys don't work any more12:55
ceacyI can't reduce the LCD luminosity12:55
siddhionjrib, so what would the output look like if i did not have anything installed or changed?12:55
siddhionjrdnyquist, would there be nothing?12:55
jribsiddhion: you can also try flushing the rules temporarily as a troubleshooting measure12:55
jribsiddhion: no rules is what the output would look like12:56
siddhionjrib, yeah that sounds much simpler. can i just do a 'ufw reset' ?12:56
jribsiddhion: I've never used ufw12:56
ceacyHas anyone experienced the same problem ?12:56
jribsiddhion: sudo iptables -F  will flush the rules12:56
ceacy(i've googled it, but nvidia-bl-dkms is already installed)12:56
ceacy(and pommed too)12:57
ceacyI've tried with mbp-nvidia-bl-dkms instead of nvidia-bl-dkms, but it doesn't change anything12:57
ceacyand the lcd dimming worked under the previous version of Ubuntu, with nvidia-bl-dkms and pommed12:57
siddhionjrib, ok did that and then did a iptables -L. result is here http://pastebin.com/4QPB1uAT12:57

siddhionjrib so there is a firewall in ubuntu and my router? anyways. in my router settings under Firewall > Port Filtering I have enabled 51413 w/ TCP and UDP to be filtered13:11
liamsmithukerry, I have a 'Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter' which works out of the box, I am pretty sure any Atheros wireless adapters work13:11

jribsannn: there's also strigi to add to the tracker and beagle list, but I've never tried it13:12
siddhionjrib, so you are saying to remove the port filtering. ok i will do this.13:13
jribsiddhion: I'm saying to not block the port on your router.  I don't know how your router works13:13
=== om26er_ is now known as om26er
siddhionjrib, i dont think anyone does.13:13
sannnjrib: both :) My first idea was to look at tracker but it does not work for me. (beagle and strigi are next on the list). But they all work on the concept of meta data. I want only filenames (think always uptodate locate)13:13
jribsannn: I'm pretty sure you can run a search query in tracker to search only filenames, no?13:14

siddhionjrib, actually the last one is  DoS setting.13:15

jribsiddhion: don't know then13:18

jribyes, that's a given of course...13:20
mick_siddhion, have you installed gufw to help configuring your firewall. The best way for you to fix this is to understand how port forwarding works. 1. Your router gets traffic on a certain port (51413) and it then looks at the port forwarding rules and says, OK, all traffic on port 51413 goes to IP address on the LAN. The traffic is routed to your PC where the firewall scans is and decides if it allowed through or not. As aresult you have to test 2 th13:22
mick_ings. 1. Port open and unhindered on your local machine (check firewall and transmission to make sure they are configured properly) 2. Check your router configuration13:22

mick_siddhion, install gufw and use that to configure your firewall. Better still, uninstall ufw for testing. If it still doesn't work after removing ufw then we know it's not that causing the problem. I reckon if we eliminate each hurdle one by one we will get it sorted13:26
