neekersi installed ubuntu 9.04 on linode.com before i learned about the Long Term Support versions like lucid lynx. is there an  easy way to upgrade to lynx or does it require a entire reinstall?00:04
rwwubottu: upgrade | neekers00:04
ubottuneekers: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade00:04
Muscovyrww: gnome-shell won't install due to xulrunner being too new.00:05
Shibaneekers: you can do an in-place upgrade00:05
gryllidaHelp! I press backspace in AbiWord and often get more than one character deleted!00:05
Shibaneekers: read the documentation first though00:05
rwwMuscovy: Hrm, I thought that got fixed. One sec.00:05
Seveasgryllida, try pressing it for a shorter time :)00:05
eMyllernoob question; how do i know from which repo a package come?00:05
SeveaseMyller, apt-cache policy packagename00:05
neekersi will definitely read the docs, just scared with all my websites running and mysql and mail server etc...00:05
hyliandoes anyone know a system info program with a lot of detail, besides hwinfo?00:06
SeveaseMyller, the one with *** is the installed one00:06
rwwhylian: lshw00:06
eMyllerSeveas: thanks :D00:06
Shibaneekers: the docs include instructions that direct you to make backups of *everything*00:06
gryllidaSeveas, it deleted whole next line very often, I press it once only, doesn't happen in other applications.00:06
Shibaneekers: always assume the worst.  in this case that means total data loss.00:06
hylianrvw thanx00:06
shurathingaeon-ltd: Should I get some kind of audio confermation when hitting the volume keys? I'm getting no sound still.00:06

shurathingaeon-ltd: just did... still no audio00:08
Seveasroved2101, what kind of mouse?00:08
rwwMuscovy: Oh, I see. It's currently not installable due to a stable release upgrade to xulrunner. There's an update to fix this problem in lucid-proposed, so it should be fixed in lucid-updates soon. The relevant bug report is https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gjs/+bug/60894000:08
aeon-ltdshurathing:  damn, experimental but you could restart00:08
Seveasairtonix, if you need to remove it because ssh is complaining about a key mismatch, it usually reports a linenumber as well00:08
shurathingaeon-ltd: agreed... brb00:09
roved2101Seveas ps200:09
Muscovyrww: Could it be fixed by manually installing the package in lucid-proposed?00:09
Seveasairtonix, you can also use ssh-keygen -F (see man ssh-keygen)00:10
airtonixSeveas, cheers00:10
rwwMuscovy: Installing the -proposed package would fix it, yes. The last comment in the bug report has a link that explains how to do that.00:10

When I hit edit-cut, or DEL, or BACKSPACE in AbiWord, I often get more than one char (always after the current one) deleted, like  half of next line or so, instead of just one char. Why and how can I set it to work normally? It does not happen in other applications.00:12

thatguy1I have a program that I am attempting to compile, it requires pthread. Upon trying to compile the compiler throws an that says that it cannot compile and gives the error (ld: cannot find -lthr) and then exits due to the error. I have pointed the pthread.h file directly and it still gives this error. Any thoughts?00:58
econdudeawesomeilovefairuz the only idea I had was to mount the partition and run update-grub00:58
ilovefairuzecondudeawesome: meaning you have two installations now? one working and one broke?00:58
econdudeawesomeilovefairuz as far as I know, because I can access the data on sda1 and reformatted sda2 (where the broken install was)00:59
econdudeawesomeilovefairuz so I think the install just screwed with grub somehow, so I generated a new one...00:59
ilovefairuzecondudeawesome: so the working installation is on sda1?01:01
econdudeawesomeiilovefairuz yes01:01
theholdercan i pastebin01:01

KwikkSilvathx :-)01:02
ilovefairuzecondudeawesome: done?01:03
picard1421is there anyway to create an Ubuntu installation on a flash drive?01:03
KwikkSilvaBut - do you think you could help me with bridging? I'm trying to bridge from Server A to Server B (B is wireless) to get Server A available on my network (not necessarily to get him on the internet)01:03

bebo__<ilovefairuz> ok , thanks for u r time01:06
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: you use use an adhoc network01:06
ilovefairuzcan use *01:07

sigmonsaysWhy would my asoundconf binary be missing tho -- ubuntu karmic not have that?01:07
KwikkSilvailovefairuz, well, i was able to get Server A on the network using Server B as an internet gateway, is that what you mean?01:07
KwikkSilvabut then Server A was behind B, on a private subnet and no one could get in at him01:08
shurathingilovefairuz: as in, try it and see?01:08
theholderdid anyone look at my paste ?01:08
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: if A can connect to B then it's already reachable01:08
theholderi have to leave01:09
KwikkSilvailovefairuz, thats what i thought - A and B can talk back and forward no problem. But C on my network cannot get to A01:09
theholderits confusing01:09
thatguy1Thanks all, that has me looking in the right direction01:09
KwikkSilvai'm trying to get C to A and thats how i hosed my network in the first place - with a bridging setup that did not work01:10
mues747anyone know how to fix the bug in gstreamer ubuntu10.4 for youtube plugin?01:10
KwikkSilvaits been driving me nuts01:10
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: there was no 'C' in your question, you can setup an wirless access point using hostapd + dnsmasq on one of them and get them all to connect to it01:10
jjgalvez__empathy keeps giving me segfault errors when I try to use video01:10
uRockmues747, have you installed ubuntu-restricted-extras?01:11
hiexpomedibutu repos also01:11
KwikkSilvailovefairuz, ahh so Server B needs to be an access point01:11
mues747used terminal and installed super os too01:12
KwikkSilvaand the way its set up now hes not?01:12
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: it should be normally the one having access to the wired network01:12
KwikkSilvai guess i dont get it01:12
hiexposuper os ?01:12
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: the machine with the wired connection should access as a wireless access point, and all other machines connect to it01:13
KwikkSilvaThese servers A and B - are at the bottom of the apartment, the router is miles away and there is no machine physically connected to it01:13
=== dhdfoo is now known as dhd
KwikkSilvaB is connected to the router cia wireless, i was trying to bridge A onto the network using his connection01:13
mues747opens up all restricted extras, adds alot to your system that isn't there out of the box...01:13
KwikkSilvaI got him on, but C (a wireless laptop) could not ping A, only B01:14
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: how is A connected to B?01:14
KwikkSilvaeth0 on A to wlan0 on B01:14
hiexpothrough abc's ?01:14
KwikkSilvaeth0 on A to eth0 on B, then B has wlan0 connected to my router01:15
hiexpo pfff01:15
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: does A have a wireless connection ?01:15
ilovefairuzhiexpo: enough01:15
mues747I have the restricted extras... also good, bad, ugly gstreamer plugins01:15
KwikkSilvaUnfortunately not - no drivers for the card01:16
KwikkSilvasorry - there is more info here - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=153501501:16
DeistHello! I'm in a bit of a problem.01:16
hiexpo?me ilovefairuz  ok being smarty :)01:16
KwikkSilvaMaybe the commands i display there might help understand - i'm just confused01:16
DeistI can only boot in safe graphic mode. If i choose to boot normal I'll just get a frozen plymouth screen.01:16
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: alright, can you setup an adhoc wirless network between B and C?01:17
KwikkSilvaohh never though of that - i reckon so.. i could try01:18
KwikkSilvabu i'm on C :-) so i'd better get all the info first01:18
shurathingkk... thanks again. :)01:18
hiexpo^ /me ilovefairuz  ok being smarty :)01:18
KwikkSilvaYou reckon thats the onlty way it'll work?01:18
* hiexpo ilovefairuz sorry 01:19
ilovefairuzDeist: at the very beginning of boot, hold down the shift key, press e, remove 'quiet splash' from the line, press enter, press b, and  check the messages as it boots01:19
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: well it's the simplest way, the other would be setting up B as a wireless access point using hostapd01:20
KwikkSilvailovefairuz, might sound dumb - but if i did get hostpad setup - do i need any special featuires on my other router in order to finish the setup (WDS?)01:21
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: not at all, just that the wireless card supports access point mode (AP mode)01:22
boingtrying to delete partition and gettting this error01:23
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: you can use open, wep or wpa/wap2 encryption without any extra software01:23
boingplease unmount any logical aprtitions having a bumber hgiher than 501:23
sigmonsayslol, I don't get how they shit a alsa-utils package that's missing asoundconf01:24
sigmonsaysoops * s/shit/ship/01:24
KwikkSilvailovefairuz, cool - ok i might try that - you reckon tough to setup? or straight forward? i'm reasonably ok with ubuntu01:24
ilovefairuzKwikkSilva: not at all tough, hostapd.conf and dnsmasq.conf can be very minimal, but be sure to get the IPs right01:25

KwikkSilvailovefairuz, the machine thats the access point, would it still be able to get out onto the internet wirelessly through my router, as well as being an AP?01:27

redlegorengHi ! I got a problem mounting a Firewire drive... I managed to do it for USB drives, but the same techniques does not work. My Firewire pci card is displayed when I use the "lspci" command. However, connecting the drive has absolutely no effect (when connecting my usb drive, I see it appear on /var/log/messages). I've searched on forums, but didn't find anything. Does someone have a hint ? (lucid, server, installed on a ibook g4)02:17

alex87jrib, cheers, i'll look into it02:19
ilovefairuzboing: so you install the new ubuntu on the 500 ?02:19
oafwhat is that named ubuntu restricted extras in ubuntu tweak? what is it used for?02:20
boingilovefairuz, yes but it is partitioned02:20
Out_Coldalex87, i go through each step i want to do, write it on paper, assign variables, and always use 'screen' you can make some awesome scripts to do just what you want02:20

UnderscoreHey, I've got a question about installing things on Ubuntu, when in a dual-boot situation with Windows. Namely, when installing something under Wine, does the program clash with the files on Windows? Because it seems that it installs to C:\Program Files. Or is there somewhere else that it's best to install programs like this?02:20
alex87Out_Cold, yeah. i might add a little web front end as well02:20
ilovefairuzboing: you're confusing me, did you complete installation of new version or not?02:21
Out_Coldalex87, you could write the script and add it to a cron tab and never really worry about it after that.02:21
ilovefairuzUnderscore: not at all, has nothing to do with windows files02:22
rwwUnderscore: c:\ in WINE is actually located in ~/.wine/drive_c/ , and is completely separate from any Windows installation you may also have.02:22
bastidrazorUnderscore: wine installs files in ~/.wine  they will not have any effect on your windows install02:22
alex87Out_Cold, yeah. it might need to manage 100+ sites though, but i'm sure that won't be too tricky02:22
oafwho knows the ubuntu restricted extras in ubuntu tweak?02:22
Underscorerww: bastidrazor: ilovefairuz: Ah! That explains it then. Thanks for the help.02:22
boingilovefairuz,  I want to remove the old umbuntu which got corrupted earlier today with the error grub rescue02:22
redlegorengwoa ! thx Out_Cold, I found it finally02:22
irinixokay, so I'm making progress I got my resolution issue sorted out, but now I need to get the linux-restricted-modules package, and that's not showing up in the repos.  Does anyone know which repo it's in?02:23
redlegorengdont know why, but it didnt appear the three last time, but this time it's there02:23
redlegorengthanks !02:23
ilovefairuzboing: where was the old one installed? the 64g hard disk or 500 one?02:23
boingilovefairuz, i am showing 216 gb filesystem02:24
Out_Coldalex87, that's where the variables come into good use. that way you put all your website names at the beginning and use a generic written script.02:24
ilovefairuzboing: i see two disks, Disk /dev/sda: 64.0 GB and Disk /dev/sdb: 500.1 GB02:24
alex87Out_Cold, yeah. i have some specific requirements, so scripting it myself is probably the way to go02:24
Mr_Sonomaoaf, The Ubuntu Restricted Extras will install Adobe Flash Player, Java Runtime Environment (JRE) (sun-java-jre) with Firefox plug-ins (icedtea), a set of Microsoft Fonts (msttcorefonts), multimedia codecs (w32codecs or w64codecs), mp3-compatible encoding (lame), FFMpeg, extra Gstreamer codecs, the package for DVD decoding (libdvdread4, but see below  for info on libdvdcss2), the unrar archiver, odbc, and cabextract. It also installs mu02:24
Mr_Sonomaltiple "stripped" codecs and avutils (libavcodec-unstripped-52 and libavutil-unstripped-49). This is a single command approach.02:24
boingilovefairuz, the 500 gb is partitioned02:25
arooni-mobilewhen i VNC to my desktop (thats running compiz and desktop effects, and 10.04) ; i dont see screen refresh.  how to fix?02:25

Out_Cold^^ alex8702:25
ilovefairuzboing: yes and you installed new version on this one?02:25

Out_Coldalex87, everything i have learned i googled, but the  few important things to look at are 'bash scripting' 'screen' and 'bash variables'02:27

Alan502Mr_Sonoma, I looked to it but it is not exactly what I want. I would like that new files are copied to my laptop and vice versa, so they would stay synced. I also want it to happen, not at an specific time but everytime my laptop connects to my LAN.03:19
Alan502Mr_Sonoma, do you think that's possible with rsync?03:19

Mr_SonomaAlan502, i dont know. I googled your question that that looked like a possible solution. you may have to script something and use a cron job to do exactly what your wanting. I personally know of NO application to do what you want.03:21
guampaAlan502: you can script it, cron is for specific times though03:21
Mr_Sonomaguampa, i was thinking like an hourly job that would run the script. the script check if he's on the network and then run03:22

velociostrichI'd like to make my virtual terminals run at the native resolution of my monitor (1280x1024), but I can't seem to figure out how. A number of articles online tell of editing the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file -- something the GRUB developers don't want you to do -- but doing so had no result. Running `vbetest' in GRUB (btw I have grub-pc installed, not legacy) showed 1280x1024x32 as being supported, so how can I get it to work? Is there so03:23
velociostrichme line I can add/edit in /etc/default/grub?03:23

guampaMr_Sonoma: yeah that should work, but there sure is a way to trigger some script when you connect to a network03:23
velociostrichactually, just nix the newline, idk what happened there03:23
Alan502Mr_Sonoma, guampa yup that's what i thought. The thing is that my laptop is not always on so it would be difficult to specify a time.03:24
Mr_Sonomaguampa, there may be i've never tried it though03:24

Mr_SonomaAlan502, did you see my initial response to guampa ?03:24
econdudeawesomenot sure what to do X(03:24

Alan502guampa, Mr_Sonoma , can rsync copy files both ways? For example, can my laptop copy its files to my desktop and gather the files from my desktop and copy them to my laptop's disk?03:26
gryllidaHow do I change user password in bash?03:26
Mr_SonomaAlan502, you'd want to check that your on YOUR network somehow that way it doesn't try to sync to someone else's computer when in a remote location03:26
Alan502without my desktop interfering03:26
econdudeawesomehowdy! I'm following the grub2 fix found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2 (about halfway down the page in the CLI) and I get an error when using hte following command: linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdXY ro *XY=a1 on my rig* and I get an error-file not found. ANyone good with grub?03:27
guampaAlan502: i heard unison is better for two way sync, though rsync can do that too03:27
Alan502guampa, i'll google unison, how can rsync do that?03:27
Mr_Sonomagryllida, passwd03:27
guampaAlan502: you can sync in two steps, first from A to B then the other way around03:28
guampabut unison takes care of conflicts better maybe, i didn't use it tho03:29
amal!ig mng03:29
Alan502guampa, aha, i did thought of that but is there a way rsync can do it running the command only on one computer?03:29

mcurrangrub uses hd0,0 syntax not hda/sda03:29
guampaAlan502: rsync can sync from the computer your'e running it to another computer or viceversa03:29
guampaall you need is to have rsync or ssh on both points03:30
econdudeawesomeIs it bad if the only thing I have in /boot is grub? Shouldn't I have some linux kernels there?03:30
Alan502guampa, mmm... so i would run the command on my laptop to copy its files to my desktop and then my laptop could ssh to my desktop and run the command via ssh?03:31
gryllidaMr_Sonoma. That worked. Thank you.03:31
econdudeawesomemcurran I tried that. I'm following the help file to the letter03:32
mcurranwhat's your issue?  You can't boot a kernel?03:32
guampaAlan502: no..you run the command on your laptop and send files to your desktop, then run it again from your laptop and GET files from your desktop03:32
Alan502guampa, what's the command to get files?03:33
sean74hi everyone03:33
sean74anyone can advice me on ubuntu 10.04 opengl03:33
sean74how can i check the version? or maybe how can i install opengl?03:33
guampaAlan502: basically rsync <switches - there are a lot> <source> <destination>03:34
guampaso to get files from your desktop source would be your desktop03:34
econdudeawesomemcurran I guess. I had/have a working install and wanted to install another version to a separate partition. Install failed (my mistake), grub ruined. Now I have booted to livecd, reinstalled/reconfigured grub according to the guide, rebooted, and now only see grub03:34
LymOk so I want to upgrade to the latest ubuntu but I want to do a fresh install, not just the upgrade, problem is I don't have any blank CD's. But I do have an external hard drive. Is there any way (doesn't have to be easy) that I could boot from the USB and have the image on there?03:34
Alan502guampa, ahh i get it, i didn't realize i could put ssh on the destination, THANKS A LOT!03:35

smackmanicanyone...? i'm pretty freaked out04:28
tripelbHelp all my open program windows are hidden after I minimized them. They do NOT show on the taskbar. There is only a "golden ball" on the left.04:28
smackmanicbut i'm sure there's a solution, googled it, lots of people have the same prob but i can't find the solution04:28
gryllida1/j #debian04:29
tripelbsmackmanic, I'm waiting too.04:29
smackmanictripelb, what's your prob, i might be able to help..can't promise but..04:29
nickrudtripelb, try right clickong the menu bar and add to panel -> window list04:29
tripelbHelp all my open program windows are hidden after I minimized them. They do NOT show on the taskbar. There is only a "golden ball" on the left.04:29
nickruderm, *clicking04:29
ndevastatorsmackmanic have you tried to manually mount the drives ?04:30
smackmanicndevastator: idk how...kinda not fam with the cmd line04:31
ndevastatorsmackmanic or is it the main filesystem that wont mount ?04:31
tripelbnickrud, that worked BUT/AND 1. what is the golden-ball 2. why is .6 of the bar blank after the ball till the next : then 4 window-deals are squished in.04:31
smackmanicit sends me to busy box, the first and main error is mount on /dev failed04:31
smackmanicno such device04:31
ndevastatorsmackmanic does the system still seem to be running correctly ?04:32
ndevastatorsmackmanic trying to figure out which mount failed04:32
smackmanictritium: are you using some sort of custom dekstop ?04:32
Oertripelb somehowe you played with the hide option ? maybe reset will clear your panel04:32
ubottuTo reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »04:32
smackmanicndevastator: system still seem to be running correctly in what manner?04:33
shell-fu ,.d04:33
smackmanictripelb: i would def go with the bot information..i maybe missed all of your info but sounds like you custumized something and its buggy, so you need to reset it04:33
shell-fuhow do i open the document viewer for pdfs from the shell terminal???04:33
=== jan_cbv is now known as rob_cbv
smackmanicndevastator: what do you mean exactly by running correctly...?04:34
ndevastatorsmackmanic sec im rereading all your comments04:34
ChogyDanshell-fu: gnome-open is a way that I like04:34
ndevastatorsmackmanic im not familiar with busy box... after you receive the error message what happens04:34
shell-fuchogydan, thanks04:34
smackmanicndevastator: i actually get a string of errors basically....then it sends me to busy box....thats about it..i can paste bin if u want? i wrote it down04:35
smackmanicon paper..so i can type it up04:35
smackmanicbut in busy box i can't cd to /home...can't sudo anything04:35
ndevastatorsmackmanic oh so you get a window that shows busy ? that what you mean by busy box04:35
smackmanicnot a window im in console04:36
smackmanicstartx does not work either04:36
ndevastatorsmackmanic did you have separate mounts for your filesystem ?04:37
smackmanicndevastator: i have a dual boot if thats what u mean04:37
smackmanicim in my windows side atm04:38
tripelbsmackmanic, no nothing special. I came home and it was like this. I reset the "window list" to show on someone's recommendation. I dont know what.. I just removed the golden ball from the panel. I have no idea what it was. all looks normal now.04:38
tripelbTY world04:38
ndevastatorsmackmanic so im assuming you are not within your ubuntu filesystem now04:40
smackmanictripelb: well....glad to hear it seems fixed..yea?04:40
ndevastatorsmackmanic you said you wrote the errors down does it list which mount fails ?04:40
smackmanicndevastator: no i'm in windows...i can't do anything in busybox or i don't know what i should be doing anyway04:40
smackmaniclemme type it out04:41

smackmanicthat should be it, think i wrote it down and typed it correctly04:42
smackmanicndevastator: it seems to be a common prob....googled it...but can't find the solution04:43
smackmanicthe saddest part is I don't have any blank cds or a livecd04:43

dustinur welcome04:50
dustinwhere is every one?04:51
nuwananyone can tell me how to install python-kde4_4.4.2-0ubuntu2_i386.deb file ?04:51
thune3nuwan: maybe change your mirror. what mirror are you using?04:52
dustin\i havent seen you here04:52
coz_numen,   double click the package if it is downloaded04:52
coz_numen,  or are you asking where to find it?04:52
ndevastatorsmackmanic okay from what i can tell it is most likely your boot partition that has become "broken" for lack of a better word04:52
nuwanwell my problem is when i use apt or synaptic it says it cant fetch it04:53
dustinmmm by chance can you tell me what the public wording of that is for ?04:53
Oernuwan terminal > sudo apt-get install python-kde4  ? this wil load current  python-kde4_4.4.2-0ubuntu2_i386.deb04:53
ndevastatorsmackmanic at this point the only fix i would know would indeed be that you would have to boot from a liveCD and reinstall grub04:53
smackmanicndevastator: would it be possible to use a 2gig USB sitck04:53
ndevastatorsmackmanic well yes... but you would have to install the system onto the disk and then set the computer to boot from it04:54
nuwanand i tried that all/ dont work04:54
thune3nuwan: you could manually fetch it from http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/python-kde4 if you click on i386 at the bottom-left and download from a mirror.04:54
smackmanicndevastator: man this sounds rough..see the prob is I don't have blank disks and I don't have a lived04:54
dustinwhat is you os you are running04:54
juniorCronosmy first moment  here04:54
nuwani tried to get it from http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdebindings/04:54
Mr_Sonomasmackmanic, you could use a 2 gig USB stick sure. there are instructions on making a bootable usb disk on the ubuntu download page04:55
nuwanthune i will try it from htere04:55
MythgarrCan anybody see this? I think I might be muted04:55
Mr_SonomaMythgarr, yes04:55
ndevastatorsmackmanic you did say you are dual booting ?04:55
MythgarrHmm... thanks04:55
smackmanicMr_Sonoma: yeah im looking it up...but reinstalling grub..that hsould be a fairly straight forward process right?04:55
=== attila is now known as Guest33162
smackmanicndevastator: yep04:55
smackmanicndevastator: only way im talking to you lol04:55
dustinnuwan you know did you setup your bios for it to boot up?04:55
ndevastatorsmackmanic reinstalling grub isnt very difficult im somewhat noob myself and i did it successfully04:55
`Polarbearhrmm, i dual boot with OSX, and PC/OS linux04:56
smackmanicndevastator: what should I look out for..cause im worried ill get there and not no the options I need to set04:56
smackmanicand set the wrong ones and get deeper into messing things up..ya know04:56
Mr_Sonomasmackmanic, yes grub is fairly straight forward. google the process and print it off for your referance if the first time doing it04:56
juniorCronosI had no problem with ubuntu since the use04:56
smackmanicMr_Sonoma: printer is broken atm! haha...but will write it down04:56
boinganyone good with repairing the grub04:56
juniorCronosso eager to learn more04:57
smackmanicim gonna put on some music while i look this up and prepare to make the plunge..04:57
Mr_Sonomaboing, what's your grub issue?04:57
boingim stuck at grub loading error: they symbol 'grub_puts_' not found next line grub rescue>04:57
akillman1join #/cyanogen04:57
dustingood! :) cuz this so much to learn,juniorCronos,04:58
smackmanicMr_Sonoma and ndevastator: i get the feeling this is the first step..like...this will solve one issue, but will need more help later type of thing...like i dont think its the sole cause04:58
smackmanicbut I'll burn that bridge when i get there04:58
boingMr_Sonoma, so i am using live cd/in the teriminal/root/ then i typed sudo grub but command not found04:58
ndevastatorsmackmanic i think your best bet would probably be install a boot version of ubuntu on that jump drive04:59
ndevastatorsmackmanic and then check your disk for errors04:59
smackmanicndevastator: should i try the grub route first04:59
ndevastatorsmackmanic well you can but... there is most likely a reason that grub is failing to load it05:00
dustinjuniorCronos,there is so much you can do here in ubuntu 10.04 lts and so much more suport then earlier versions that you would spend  over $200 and still not get all tha you can do with your computer05:00
Mr_Sonomaboing, uh i'm looking for the list of commands now. but i'm thinking your wanting update-grub05:01
ndevastatorsmackmanic here is a link to a handy script that you can use to figure out which mount that UUID is05:01
guampahow can i restart gnomepanel? kill -HUP ?05:01
tucemiuxsmackmanic, if youre trying to set up a hard drive using UUID you can send me a PM05:01
smackmanictucemiux: i'm not sure what im doing to be honest...05:02
ubottuTo reset the panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »05:02
ndevastatortucemius no he is experiencing a boot error05:02
ndevastatortucemius and a mount is failing to load05:02
ndevastatortucemius and sending him to busybox05:02
khiderUbuntu does not detect my laptop wifi card (bcm 4312 a/b/g) any ideas as to why? Conversely, Damn Small Linux sees it, but cannot activate it05:02

Oerguampa logout & login again ?05:03
Mr_Sonomaboing, you cant get anywhere?05:03
smackmanictucemiux: lol05:03
tucemiuxkhider, you need to find out if there are drivers for linux05:03
smackmanicthis is not good05:03
smackmanici don't have the space on this windows partition to dl the files for the liveusb05:04
ndevastatorsmackmanic, ouch =(05:04
khidertucemiux: Broadcom STA-Wireless05:04
smackmanichaha....gotta figure this one out..turn on brain05:04
smackmanicndevastator: i'll try to figure it out05:04
boingMr_Sonoma, yes, i am getting a grub rescue error05:04
khidertucemiux: It is not a driver issue, it is an 'OS cannot see it' issue05:04
ndevastatorsmackmanic, well you have very little options from busybox the best i can tell... honestly I am not very familiar with it05:04
boingso how can I fix this issue it has only been about 5 hours so far trying05:05
dustinthen you need codecs05:05
khidertucemiux: I updated the BIOS today, that did not work either05:05
tucemiuxkhider, you need to find out if your wireless device is supported in linux -- hence the drivers, if you dont have the drivers you wont be able to use it, even if linux can detect it05:05

picard1421is there an easy install guide for openCV?05:33
sparkydustin with a pimped main page05:33
saegeoffkhider, I am not sure.  I would have to be doing it myself to figure it out.  There were some changes made to the USB aspect of ubuntu since then.  Just give it a try and see if it works.  Write down everything you do so you can go back if necessary05:33
processroute!opencv | pickard142105:33
saegeoffkhider, also if you get it working, then you can make a post in the Ubuntu forms to contribute what you figured out05:33
caraelYankDownUnder: cant find anythinh05:34
khidersaegeoff: I am not that clever with Linux yet, but who knows. Thanks for trying. ; - )05:34
dustinsparky,you must be new to this, but not irc05:34
caraeli ve got all my cisco training in wmv05:35
guampaprocessroute: so you're finally willing to use iptables?05:35
sparkydustin; i am new to this lol05:35
caraeland i don t want tp spend my timme to convert it05:35
processrouteguampa: if someone has the code, yep05:35
guampai guess it depends on what you intend to do, you wanted to do some sort of netscanning iirc?05:35
saegeoffkhider, you'll catch on quickly.  Linux is fun05:36
processrouteguampa: i want to test it on elinks on eth0 and w3m on eth105:36
kindofabuzzkhider, you took time to learn windows, take time to learn linux, well worth it05:36
khidersaegeoff: After trying Ubuntu, Slackware, Gentoo (desktop) and retruning to Xubuntu for laptop--among other distros--and many swears later...it is also quite maddening05:37
pinPointis there a reason my Chat Accounts in 10LTS show me as offline?05:37
ryoohkiwhat is the "chkconfig --list" equivelent for ubuntu?  chkconfig is installed but doesn't show many services i know are configured( like eucalyptus for example) and there must be a way to list the services i can turn on and off with update-rc.d05:37
pinPointthere is internet on this box05:37
guampaprocessroute: lemme check if iptables have something to restrict on app basis05:37
dustinok good this if you want i can see if i can help up get updated, ubuntu has <cough,cough,> "special things to it that make it trying sometimes hard to get(thats why we are here) but you started in the right place05:37
dustinsparky, ok good this if you want i can see if i can help up get updated, ubuntu has <cough,cough,> "special things to it that make it trying sometimes hard to get(thats why we are here) but you started in the right place05:38
guampaprocessroute: in the meantime, i know it's not the same but you can force an app to use a specific socks proxy with tsocks or proxychains05:38
sparkywell thats good to know :)05:39
ryoohkiis there a seperate channel for sysadmin questions for ubuntu?05:39
processrouteguampa: i am well aware of that05:39
processrouteguampa: i have used both05:39
saegeoffkhider, hardware support is getting much better in the newer versions05:39
picard1421getting ./configure command not found?05:39
picard1421whats the apt-get for ./configure.. it says i dont have it intalled?05:40
processrouteguampa: if not, i will hit up brainstorm.ubuntu.com05:40
sparkydustin, that is good to know i know baisic stuff but not to much and need step by step directions05:40
khidersaegeoff: I agree, I bought an old used laptop because I trashed by new one. Things worked better on thye enw than the old05:40
processroutepicard1421: sudo apt-get install build-essentials package05:40
picard1421i have alreaday installed that?05:41
picard1421and it says ./configure is a command not found???05:41
ndevastatorsymlink is ln -s TARGET DESTINATION     correct ?05:41
picard1421i intalled cmake also05:41
sweetpiryoohki: maybe #ubuntu-server is what your looking for05:41
processroutepicard1421: is there a configure file, did you install automake?05:41
overtherainbowWhere does network manager store all its configuration files?05:41
picard1421installing automake now (;05:41
guampaprocessroute: for a start, theres a match rule that matches packets owned by specific uid/gid, so you can setuid or su - the apps and match that way05:41
processrouteguampa: you mean pid?05:42
processrouteguampa: can you post that to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9655540 to me and the world?05:42
guampai haven't found yet match packets by pid which would be the ideal, but it's a start05:43
picard1421still says05:43
picard1421./configure command not found?05:43
picard1421i have build essentials05:43
picard1421and automake installed05:43
processroutepicard1421: some programs jump right to make, did you try make command?05:43
soreaupicard1421: You have to be in a directory that has a configure script05:44
processroutesoreau: some programs require building the configure script, what other apps besides automake help do that?05:45
guampaprocessroute: sure05:45
picard1421there is a configure file.. but it says the .configure command is not installed????05:45
processrouteguampa: thanks05:45
IzinucsWhat's the ibus ?05:45
soreauprocessroute: Each project has it's own way to use it's build system05:45
processroutesoreau: what are some other common ones he could try?05:45
dustinsparky,hey do you need help playing music?05:45

processroutepicard1421: could you, in terminal, do a ls -a >> output.txt and paste that txt file into pastebin?05:46
soreaupicard1421: When you're in the source directory where configure exists, ./configure will run that configure script in that directory05:46

ubottulikong: For Ubuntu help in Chinese 您可以访问中文频道: #ubuntu-cn 或者 #ubuntu-tw  或者 #ubuntu-hk05:47
soreaupicard1421: The key is, you have to be in the same directory that configure script is in when you run ./configure05:47
soreaupicard1421: And you should never use root to build source05:47
picard1421yea im in the right directory.. and i can seee the file in scp05:47
picard1421why not use root?05:47
processroutesoreau: and write the file with non-sudo or non-root :)05:47
soreaupicard1421: or to do any user tasks (such as configuring building source)05:47
heyboyI have many [ufw block] entries in my log files. what do they mean?05:48
=== FreshPrince is now known as FreshPrince_
soreaupicard1421: You probably screwed up the permissions by using root in the first place05:48
soreaupicard1421: It's a really bad idea05:48
picard1421but why??05:48
soreau! root05:48
ubottuDo not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:48
likongi know05:48
soreaupicard1421: For one thing, it's a security issue. And you should not form a habit of using sudo or root because linux is permissions based05:49
soreaupicard1421: If you start running user apps as root, it could foil your permissions and then you can have other problems latert05:49
processroutepicard1421: using root gives files and processes administrative access to do anything to a system, if you need to use the root account, in terminal, sudo passwd to set it a password and su in terminal to access root05:49
picard1421kk .. one mroe thing.,. you know when you boot up and you get the ubuntu 10.04 maroon splash screen.. is there anyway to change that .. get a JPEG in background instead of that splash??05:49
processroute!splash | picard142105:50
ubottupicard1421: To change the Gnome splash screen, use gnome-splashscreen-manager or change the GConf key /apps/gnome-session/options/splash_image using !gconf-editor.05:50
picard1421its not gnome..05:50
soreaupicard1421: configuring and building source are not administrative tasks. Installing the built project into standard prefix on the filesystem is however05:50
picard1421its just the normal thing.. i have no GUI..05:50
picard1421its just hte marron splash with ubuntu 10.0405:50

ubottucjae: 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?06:02
FaethinWas the volume control applet removed completely from Gnome?06:03
cjaeiceroot, that is the real one06:03
FaethinSo that only Pulseaudio has it?06:03
icerootcjae: then go to #ubuntu-offtopic06:03
cjaeiceroot, why06:04
icerootcjae: this is the ubuntu-support-channel06:04
picard1421so did anyone figure out how to change that splash screen?06:04
FaethinPulseaudio is always at the bottom of ev'ry problem I've ever had with sound06:04
icerootFaethin: its just not activated by default in lucid. its called indicator-applet06:04
MrPocketzso I'm totally blanking. If i want to have /dev/sda1 mount to /mnt/something  automatically at boot06:04
MrPocketzshould i script it in rc.local?06:04
MrPocketzor is there an fstab config i can modify?06:05
Faethinice799: how do I activate it?06:05
Faethiniceroot: how do I activate it?06:05
icerootMrPocketz: /etc/fstab06:05
icerootFaethin: right click on the panel, add applet, then choose the indicator-applet06:05
MrPocketziceroot, thanks06:05
joeyyyyany one own a intel atom board ?06:06
cablopwhat is the best and more complete codec package?06:06
thune3heyboy: i just get youtube-dl from http://bitbucket.org/rg3/youtube-dl/downloads , since it has to change often to keep up with any changes in youtube.com06:06
cablopjoeyyyy: anyone with a netbook :P06:06
nicahow can i run the speaker test?06:06
Faethiniceroot: I uninstalled pulseaudio because it was messing up my sound and my mic06:06
icerootcablop: ubuntu-restricted-extras is pulling w32-codecs i guess06:06
Faethiniceroot: does that mean no volume applet for me?06:06
icerootFaethin: yes, the applet comes from pulseaudio if i am correct06:07
IzinucsFaethin: I have one.. when I right mouse click and "about" it says "Indicator Aplet 0.3.706:07
Faethiniceroot: but that was not the case with the previous releases of Ubuntu. I read somewhere that this was a first, just for gnome 2.2606:08
jerrymhey all!06:08
jerrymhow's everyone?06:08
FaethinIzinucs: I don't have pulseaudio, so it seems I won't be getting the applet06:08
processrouteguampa: i posted on brainstorm also, any luck posting to ubuntuforums?06:08
zkriesseHello jerryluc06:08
zkriesseHello jerrym06:08
cabloplet me give them a try iceroot :)06:08
maconica: open a terminal (type "terminal" in the menu's search thing) and type "speaker-test" in the terminal, then hit enter and listen06:09
jerrymi am new here, but hope to bcome regular06:09
nicawhat info would you like from the speaker test?06:10
IzinucsFaethin: Mine is a stock install.. did you remove pulse?06:10
FaethinIzinucs: I did. It was messing up my sound and mic06:11
abhijitzkriesse, :)06:11
zkriesseOh hello abhinav_singh06:11
FaethinIzinucs: perhaps it had to do with the fact that I'm using a custom kernel06:11
zkriesseOh hello abhijit06:11
IzinucsFaethin: could be..06:11
binniTotem doesn't see my audio cd, I'm using Xubuntu, for some reason Exaile sees it though.06:11
guampaprocessroute: i'm writing the post... but i'm no native english speaker, + the solution is fairly complex, so i'ts a bit difficult for me to write :)06:11
maconica: do you hear anything?06:11
abhijitzkriesse, hows you doing?06:12
FaethinIzinucs: which I had to, since my lappy never took off without it unless I turned off ACPI06:12
nicanothing in my speaker or headset06:12
maconica: run "alsamixer" and check that everything's up and there's nothing with "MM" on it?06:12
jerrymsounds like exhaile comes with the codecs or awareness of your multimedia hardware...06:12
IzinucsFaethin: you didn't need a custom kernel to turn off acpi..06:12
processrouteguampa: ok, when you get a chance, vote on a solution at brainstorm.ubuntu.com when its approved, thanks again06:12
binnioh wait Totem does see it now..06:12
FaethinIzinucs: of course not. But I wanted ACPI functionality.06:13
IzinucsFaethin: ah06:13
FaethinIzinucs: stoopid pulseaudio ¬¬06:13
binnibut it's not able to play it like Exaile06:14
guampaprocessroute: isn't brainstorm.ubuntu.com for feature reqs?06:14
macoguampa: yep06:14
processrouteguampa: yeah, i think there should be an easy way to do it built in the ubuntu kernel06:15
dustinsparky.< are you here?06:17
jerrymgood night everyone. and thanks for the welcome here. will be back again, soon.06:17
dustingood night06:17
guampai don't think forcing a program to use a specific interface fits in that place then...not something that many ppl would want to do imho06:18
processrouteguampa: i don't know why not, seems common place for users that have more than one isp or vpn06:20
guampato be honest, it is the first time i hear someone want to do that, and anyway if it was so common why aren't there a lot of google results with the answer?06:21

ubottuKelson_: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!06:22
Kelson_Does canonical's oft-touted community want to give me some advice06:22
processroute!ask | Kelson_06:22
ubottuKelson_: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)06:22
Mr_Sonomawhat do you need advice on Kelson_ ?06:27
Kelson_I'm having trouble installing 10.04 on my Dell studio 1555. I have a 250 gb hard drive, 200gb of which is an ntfs partition with my data, i also have a 100mb ext4 partition that I mount as /boot, a 4gb swap space, and the remaining 46gb i mount as /. I've tried three installs from two separate discs now, and they work just fine, but when i reboot I get an error: "Gave up waiting for root device." does anyone have any suggestions?06:27
mintuxI don't have sound icon in applet manager also keyboard language in ubuntu 10.406:28
icerootmintux: add the applet "indicator-applet" to your panel06:28
guampaprocessroute: there i posted my answer at ubuntuforums06:29
mintuxiceroot: and for keyboard layout  ?06:29
icerootmintux: have a look at the list of applets06:29
processrouteguampa: thank you, hopefully they will append the Ubuntu kernel to allow this easier in future releases06:29
quiescenswhat you can do is write up something as a preload, that adds the appropriate SO_BINDTODEVICE business to any network calls06:30
cablopis there something better than the default media player?06:31
Mr_SonomaKelson_, while i don't disagree with a seperate /boot why do you have it? I typically do a seperate /home partition and thats it. the rest is in / don't know if that's the issue or not.06:31
guampaprocessroute: youre welcome, if you like the solution i can help you to implement it, just letme know. i don't think it will/should be implemented in kernel space though, instead it's a perfect candidate for a userspace solution06:31
Mr_SonomaKelson_, do you get any other error codes that may help in leading to an answer?06:31
processroutequiescens: i saw this somewhere on the internet, let me find that link again06:32
processrouteguampa: i'll add that suggestion to brainstorm now06:32
mintuxiceroot: I did but where is keyboard ? http://up.iranblog.com/Files1/eb24d218ac1f419c871a.png    http://up.iranblog.com/Files1/863946481f00452a9f7d.png06:32
quiescensI'm just thinking along the lines of the more common trickle bandwidth limiter06:32
quiescenswhere instead of limiting bandwidth use, you can put a SO_BINDTODEVICE flag06:32
icerootmintux: hm i thought its in that list06:33
cablopcause it hink the default ubuntu mediaplayer is too slow :S06:33
icerootmintux: but i am not using that applet so i dont know, sorry06:33
Kelson_Mr_Sonoma, I have the separate /boot partition at the suggestion of a friend, that it might fix the problem I was having. I'm not entirely wedded to the idea of a separate /boot partition. There are no other error codes, after telling me that the problem could be with the boot arguments it j ust gives me a shell06:34
quiescensit would save any kernel trickery and shouldn't need to use superuser privs06:35
processrouteguampa: i've been looking for an operator to do this or something for years, but at least today, options as yours exist06:35
cablopis deluge lighter than ktorrent06:36
guampawell rpdb and iptables exist in their actual forms for a couple of years now06:36
cablopi see that deluge is too heavy06:36
cablopi mean ktorrent06:36
processroutequiescens: no, this is the same as attaching PID to an address, not network device, that can be done easier through route06:36
Rosbuntucan anyone help with my screen going black problem?06:36
cablopit's running slow... but maybe cause i'm running it inside  gnome06:36
Mr_SonomaKelson_, i'm not promising anything, but take a look at this. And possibly follow the link there to the ubuntu community docs on grub2. You may find this useful: http://techgage.com/news/repairing_a_broken_grub_2_boot-loader_on_ubuntu/06:36
processrouteguampa: well, i don't think anyone put the two and two together06:36
aLeSDhi all06:37
Kelson_Mr_Sonoma, thank you, ill be back on later if that doesn't work.06:37
aLeSDcould u suggest me a dockbar ?06:37
quiescensyeah but playing with route and iptables requires superuser normally06:37
processrouteRosbuntu: System -> Preferences -> Power Management06:37
guampahaha, that could be the case. anyway i'm interested in the problem as, odd as it seems for me, it looks a cool resource06:37
Rosbuntuprocessroute,  then06:38
guampayes it can come in handy when you have 2+ isps or whatnot06:38
processrouteRosubuntu: put display to sleep: Never06:38
quiescenswith an appropriately written library, you would be able to do: LD_PRELOAD=nameoflibrary.so IFACE=eth3 (commandline)06:38
processrouteguampa: yeah, or an isp and a vpn06:38
Rosbuntuprocessroute,  put it06:39
quiescensprocessroute: for example, http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-net/msg09560.html is very close06:39
processrouteRosbuntu: put it = set it = select it06:39
quiescensprocessroute: add a little bit of error handling, and make it so that the interface is set in an environment variable instead of hardcoded06:39
Rosbuntuprocessroute, selected it and set it06:39
cablopno mediaplayer recommendation?06:40
Rosbuntuprocessroute,  my problem is when my screen goes black i cannot do anything.. i need to restart my pc .. and the black screen happens when i want to deal with some graphics job like turning on screen saver.. or something like this06:40
SingAlongdoes anyone use ChucK? I tried to install it on my ubuntu 10.04 netbook and used make linux-alsa but it says segmentation fault when I try to run chuck.06:40
Kelson_Mr_Sonoma, now that I'm on a computer, can you send me that link again? I feel silly for losing it06:40
Mr_SonomaKelson_, i'm not promising anything, but take a look at this. And possibly follow the link there to the ubuntu community docs on grub2. You may find this useful: http://techgage.com/news/repairing_a_broken_grub_2_boot-loader_on_ubuntu/06:40
Mr_SonomaKelson_, there you go06:41

Kelson_cablop, Banshee is a good media player that can be installed via synaptic package manager06:41

saegeoffshawnboy, use a scripting language06:44

processrouteRosbuntu: is this the error you get: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=86924506:44

ghostpadxaThe brightness applet is not working.can anybody help me please?06:47
saegeoffShawnboy:  I dont think you need perl.  Personally, I would use python before perl.  Though, I don't believe you should need either.  Look up on writing basic terminal scripts online06:47

Jordan_U!mint | bevil06:59
ubottubevil: There are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mintsupport), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux)06:59
bevilthanks, so i should get the scim work for me06:59
bazhangbevil, get to the channel of your distro; which one is it07:00
bevilbazhang: ok07:00
aswincn i turn of backlight in keyboards?07:00
saegeoffaswin:  can't you turn that off in your bios settings ?07:01
Jordan_Ubevil: Even if you were actually using Ubuntu, I don't think that 8.10 is even supported any more (so it's not even getting security updates).07:01

aswini'm able to use te rest of function like reducing brightness,turning on wifi,mute nd all..but the button for backlight doesnt work07:03
aswinyesterday wen i closed the lid of my laptop ubuntu got stuck?is it a problem on my side or is it ubuntu's problem?07:04
saegeoffaswin:  thats probably because its too rare to support.  Give it a few years, i think they will become more popular and better supported07:04
saegeoffaswin:  what got stuck?07:04
aswinthe os?not the lid :) the system just hanged..i couldnt get it back running nd i forced it to shut dwn07:05

macomasoncloud: i just got a zareason terra hd which i like quite a lot, though i was one of the first to get it, so i know theyre already working on fixing the couple (minor) bugs the first two of us hit07:07
aswinit was set to suspend on closing lid07:07
macomasoncloud: and by first to get it, i mean it was released last week ;-)07:07
macomasoncloud: id expect within a couple weeks itll be perfect07:07
macomasoncloud: ive heard of no bugs with zareason's teo07:08
masoncloudmaco, lol. I'm still currently one my ASUS 701 with 4GB SSD, lol! I have been on Zareason's & System76's websites allot lately07:09
macomasoncloud: the minor bug on the terra is that i have to click the "suspend" option in the machine instead of just closing the lid...which is what i usually do anyway07:09
rkjaswin that's been my experience too, at least ubuntu 8.04 - the suspend/hibernate modes basically don't work reliably, so I reverted to just blanking the screen07:09
macomasoncloud: er in the os i mean. i havent tried the keyboard button07:09
rkjaswin the screen is about half the power consumption of the laptop07:09

PureSineDocteh_ , in proc/mount => /dev/sdb1 /media/Downloads ext4 (Download is my HDD name)07:55
ghostpadxasaegeoff: just wanna know it07:55
jefimenkoDocteh_: that works, but i'm not familiar with the installer environment. where is the current installation mounted to, etc.07:56
Docteh_PureSine: odd, so chowning it should stick, unless you're moving it to different computers with different user ids07:56
Docteh_jefimenko: it probably does /target07:56
Lymok so on ubuntu website it has a bit on making a usb image for a thumb drive? would the same process work for an external hd?07:56

PureSineAnother question, How can I enter sudo commands from user terminal and give admin password, currently I can't perform sudo commands even if I give admin password, it says I'm not Sudoer07:58
saegeoffghostpadxa:  you're obviously a fool.  that is your ipaddress you moron.  stop trying to hack because you are clearly bad at it.07:58
Docteh_Sleepwalker_Dima: "dpkg-reconfigure -a" might be useful to run07:58
saegeoffghostpadxa:  please leave this chat room, no one here is going to help you learn how to hack07:58
Docteh_PureSine: usually sudo asks for your passord, su - asks for root password (which is not set by default, also ubuntu peeps hate running as root blah blah blah)07:59
sweetpisaegeoff: you should have let him waste his time. would have been priceless when he realized it on his own :)07:59
jefimenkoDocteh_: thanks, i think i've got it from here07:59
saegeoffsweetpi:  hahaha07:59
Docteh_PureSine: editing /etc/sudoers is on your horizon07:59
Docteh_or fiddling with groups i guess07:59
Docteh_jefimenko: coolbeans08:00
magnetronPureSine: use "visudo" from a real sudo account, add the new sudo account in there08:00
magnetronPureSine: or just open the "Users and groups" and make the user an Admin account08:00

okookokihon 10.04, I am trying to install snd-dummy - I believe it should work : modprobe snd-dummy out of the box, however I tried compiling (which worked btw) a newer patch to it, despite compiling and "installing" to the location /lib/modules/2.6.32-22-generic-pae/kernel/sound/drivers/snd-dummy.ko it won't modprobe. Now I moved it from there, it says cannot find it... how can I revert to the out-of-the-box package for snd-dummy?08:01
Guest65266docteh blowing on the card didn't help (well I didn't try it but I suspect it doesn't) any other ideas, this card works fine in other machines only on lucid it doesn't08:02
saegeoffghostpadxa:  did you figure it out yet? lol08:02
Guest65266and other usb mounting has probs08:02
ghostpadxasaegeoff: yeah so08:02

Docteh_hopefully not a hardware problem Guest6526608:03
Docteh_actually i killed a usb controller with an mp3 player once08:03
Guest65266docteh worked fine prior to lucid update08:03
Guest65266I can't read the card via card reader or via canon usb cord08:03
Docteh_updates to kernel?08:04
Guest65266everything at latest kernel08:04
Docteh_did you try an older kernel option in grub menu?08:04
Guest65266hmm, that's a thought08:05
Seveas-trainGuest65266, usb related errors in dmesg (so, device found but not readable) or nothing at all (device not detected)08:05

Seveas-trainhave you tried the device on another computer?08:08

dartcompiz is tearing my desktop...how can i prevent this08:08
Guest65266lsusb finds card reader but fdisk -l doesn't find the disk08:08
Seveas-trainkernel it is then. Maybe try a maverick live cd? Also please file a bug.08:09
Guest65266k, I've seen similar bugs but not sure this is any of them, will try different kernel and file report08:09
Docteh_i'd double check and make sure the usb controller didn't suicide, then file a bug08:09
Seveas-trainGuest65266, make sure you put the lsusb info and all error messages in there08:10
dartthere is a lot of visual tearing when i play videos or play games....is compiz responsible for this....how do i fix this?08:10
Guest65266how check the usb controller? it seems fine with lsusb and my mouse and keyboard are plugged into same usb hub08:10
Docteh_dart: you're sure compiz is up?08:10
EvRidehey guys, i have a netbook that does not have a cd drive, and cannot boot from USB08:10
dartsomeone told me to match compiz refresh rate to monitors refresh rate on a blog08:11
Seveas-trainEvRide, that's pretty lame. Haven't seen one yet that can't boot from usb. Which model?08:11
EvRideright now i have ubuntu installed with wubi, but i want to install ubuntu on its own partition08:11
Docteh_Guest65266: those guys might be 1.1 devices, got any other usb 2.0 flash things or hard drives?08:11

dartDocteh_, someone told me to match compiz refresh rate to monitors refresh rate on a blog08:12
EvRidebut anyways, how do i get grub to boot from usb? im having problems with it08:12
jefimenkoDocteh_: it worked :)08:12
slidinghornso i actually have a question for once...every time I try to do an update/upgrade/installation on my *old* laptop (i think it's on intrepid) it gives me a "bus error" with no addt'l info.  haven't checked dmesg -- does that point to hardware?08:12
Docteh_slidinghorn: it could be a stupid gui problem unless you're doing it from the cli08:13
slidinghornDocteh_, yeah i'm in terminal -- i try to stay away from gui when i can to "toughen myself up"  lol08:14
Legendary_BiboIf I downgrade to Ati Catalyst 10.6 or perhaps 10.5 will my artifacting cease?08:14
sweetpiEvRide: did you check the bios to make sure you cant boot from usb. I havent seen a computer in many years that couldnt08:14
Docteh_EvRide: i'd suggest checking out boot.kernel.org but i dont think they have lucid installer as one of the options :-/08:14
EvRideyes sweetpi, i've checked everything08:14
slidinghornit's an old useless laptop that I don't use...think I might try to install another distro on it just to check it out08:14
Docteh_EvRide: do you have another linux box to play on? try installing syslinux onto a usb thing, might work better than grub08:15
sweetpiEvRide: i take that back.. i had a laptop that i had to disable "usb legacy" to make it boot from usb08:15
EvRidei've disabled legacy usb as well08:15
EvRidehow will installing syslinux on usb work if i can't boot from usb?08:16
Docteh_slidinghorn: bus error from cli is odd08:16
slidinghornDocteh_, we'll see what happens when I take it to the office tomorrow and try to install debian on it08:16
Docteh_EvRide: i thought the problem was grub wasn't working, not booting period08:17
* slidinghorn works @ a computer repair shop & gets to abuse the resources :-P08:17
EvRidei've followed this page: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootFromUSB08:17
Docteh_slackware was compiled i486 up until recently08:17
EvRidebut at the moment im getting a cannot get C/H/S values error08:18
Docteh_where at? booting or from some command you're supposed to type in?08:18
EvRidewell i sorta followed it, i think that info is kinda old08:18

Docteh_I've never had success with anything involving a howto and USB myself, except for one that said to type "syslinux /dev/<device>" and then rtfm on the conf file ;)08:19

EvRideya i can, but that seems like an even more complex problem08:23
EvRideerr solution08:24
EvRideor do i mean problem?08:24
Docteh_personally i'd stick the alternate boot cd initrd+kernel onto a usb dude and try extlinux or syslinux, its the same stuff that boots the livecds08:24

apporcyes ,this question is too hard to answer.08:24
apporcwhat software .08:24
EvRidebut i cannot boot from usb...08:24

padzaI can't access the important data on my Iomega Zip/Jaz drives.09:12
YankDownUnderMechanisM, Choose the one that's 8 bits - as yer first test09:12
psycho_oreoske7en_AIS, a faster way would be to just go through hardware drivers09:12
MechanisMI need vga=??? <= this number09:13
MechanisMfor 1680x105009:13
YankDownUnderMechanisM, You can put in there the 0x0368 => ya don't need a solid base 10 number09:13

oCean_mylisto2: it's there because not all users know if they have 32 or 64, so 32 is the savest choice09:21

TheSargeHello, I just purchased a Dell Inspirion and am dual booting Win7 and Ubuntu 10.4, I cannot for the life of me get the wireless to enable when in Ubuntu it doesnt matter if I leave the wlan enabled or disabled in windows? Any advice?09:36
oCean_azlon: not here?09:37
slidinghornTheSarge, well, there's a lot of things it could be...can I PM you a few commands to post to http://paste.ubuntu.com ?09:37
tonyyarussoTheSarge: I don't know for sure, but some systems have a BIOS setting for whether to enable onboard wireless which Linux respects and other systems do not, so you could make sure it's enabled there first.  Next tack is driver/firmware issues.09:37
azlonoCean_: its linux related... i just need to know how to make a script... like if i just did touch whatever.sh, what would i need to put in the sh file to copy another file? is it just the commands as i would type in terminal or is it a langaunge i need to learn?09:38
TheSargeslidinghorn: I am in windows I have no way to get online in Ubuntu at all :( I ran the command that the troubleshooting section of the manual said, it gave me a result that the wlan was in a "disabled" state.09:38
robertzaccourok. i have my user name and password correct on pidgin for msn. it won't connect. same for emesene i installed it to check on it. still the same. pidgin gives me an error saying "Your MSN buddy list is temporarily unavailable. please try again." thats as specific as it gets from my end09:38

Carsten-So as that user can modify all the permissions in the folder10:07

Carsten-One more thing, whats the correct chmod command to give files 777 and files 644 in a tree of folders?10:11
kasihateball, I don't have that executable10:11
Carsten-sorry badly stated.. Should have said 777 for folder and 644 for files10:12

mick02Folks, I'm using Kubuntu and when I try to share a folder that is on my desktop however when I right click and choose Share it is unchecked when I reopen the sharing properties11:40
gaberlunzieyes, usgi: quite a few it seems .... so let me get this straight, it appears to be a 64-bit problem?11:40
jasonwryanCaneToad: Ubuntu One in my menu...11:40
gaberlunzie64-bit related11:40
jasonwryanCaneToad: Right click and open Edit Menus to make sure it isn't hidden...11:40
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: as far as I can tell, the people who do seem to have it are using 64-bit, but a lot of people are lucky or fix it11:41
bat_#j ta.cz11:41
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: there's so many combinations of hardware out there, some people just get away with it11:41
CaneToadjasonwryan: not there...what does your menu invoke?11:41
gaberlunzieok, cuz like i said, it's embarrassing for a ubuntu user like me, lol ... in terms of migrating from windows11:41
dustinamen assie11:42
gaberlunziei'm waiting for a fix, so i can boast about using ubuntu, heh11:42
mick02So is there any reason why the share folder will not share out even after I set it up through the GUI?11:42
gaberlunziecuz i think it's a fundamental problem11:42
jasonwryanCaneToad: starts the applet in my status panel11:42
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: well, have you tried any KDE distributions? Perhaps Kubuntu might work better with your hardware?11:42
USGIshimuraAnd it also might be more familiar to you as well, as an introduction11:43
USGIshimurato linux11:43
gaberlunziehmmm, i kinda prefer gnome ... had removed kde11:43
CaneToadjasonwryan: I can see that /usr/bin/ubuntuone-launch exists...but invoking it does nothing (???)11:43
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: well in that case, I definitely recommend linux mint, if you can spare the bandwidth11:44
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: however, I'm getting off track11:44
jasonwryanCaneToad: from the cli?11:45
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: I'm sure there is a solution to your problem, I'm just not the best person to be giving Ubuntu advice! haha11:45
CaneToadjasonwryan: yup.... anyway looks like others are having the same trouble:  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=149838811:45
gaberlunziethat's ok, usgi, i have come around a solution online as yet .... i'll just have to continue to be on the lookout11:45
gaberlunzie*haven't come around one11:46
jasonwryanCaneToad: <sigh />11:46
USGIshimuragaberlunzie: yes these things often take time, but thankfully 10.04 is a long term project - a lot of bugs get ironed out in these releases11:48

jribau: your private keys should be 600...12:26
antonio__randy_: will that prevent a dual boot from happening?12:26
randy_vlt: trust me, even if the usb stick is just for your bootup, it can't be NTFS.  besides the structural ramifications behind why that won't happen, grub can't actually boot from NTFS.  it relays the boot to the NTFS partition where window's bootloader takes over...12:26
aujrib: thanks.12:26
jribau: .pub is generally not a private key however.12:26
vltrandy_: So I need the kernel on the drive too, right? The kernel should be able to read ntfs and find the actual ISO file to continue ...12:27
vlt /j #grml12:28
randy_vlt: honestly, an endeavour like the one you're referring to is hefty even for me.12:28
dustinAdvoWork, about what?12:28
USGIshimuravlt: yes, stop being adventurous! how dare you! haha12:28
rob_pau: That seems strange because it's assuming your id_rsa.pub key is your private key!  Your id_rsa.pub is your public key.  Strange.12:28
rob_pau: You're on a Mac, right?12:29
dustinlol, just being cautious is a pc thing12:29
authought I'd drop in here as it's a terminal thing eheh12:29
randy_vlt: just take my advice and stay far far away from NTFS when doing anything linux/unix/gnu.  NTFS is microsoft proprietary and thus the linux implementations of NTFS are ~ok~ but not great and prone to wierd bugginess.12:30
rob_pau: Ok.  Well I just checked on my mac and the permissions for my private key are indeed 600 but for my id_dsa.pub key (public key), they are 644.12:30
rob_pau: So I can't imagine why your system thinks your public key is your private key!12:30
randy_vlt: for some reason, i feel like you're trying to boot ubuntu ~thru~ windows without touching your harddrive.  if thats what you want to do, let me suggest something like wubi12:31

latitudec600i installed lucid on my 9 year old PIII laptop and, in order to boot other distros from USB, I successfully installed plop boot manager and edited the grub.cfg.

philinuxlivingdaylight: if you plan to use suspend then yes14:52
beeman_nllivingdaylight: i give my 4gb machine a 1gb swapfile, almost never uses it14:52
edbianlivingdaylight, If you don't have a swap and you run out of ram (I know that's unlikely) then the system simply crashes.  If you have at least 50 Mb of swap it won't.14:53

BlueChipHi - two days ago I downloaded and installed the latest Ubuntu ...I then installed vnc4server ...when I vnc in to the machine i get a blank desktop (no icons, no title-bar, "no nothing") ...I have read many articles but none have solved it - it *seems* (to my-n00b-self)  that editing /root/.vnc/xstartup has no effect - is there anything else I can try?15:00
