rahdukea couple versions ago 9.04 if i remember correctly had a drive management program that let you view which folders on your drive took up the most space, it broke everything down into directory trees and it was really handy.....anyone know what that was? and if i can get it back on 10.04??00:09

bpietrohi to all. Lucid don't like Zope? Why I can install bunch of zope utilities and zope related packages but main Zope package is missing. Both, apt-get or Synaptic, nope. But in repository, dir pool/main/z/ there is zope2.11 deb package.  So how I can install it? Or there is some reason of non install it?00:11
Cmdr_W_T_Rikerrahduke: let me give it a try00:11
PresuntoRJyoshie: no problem... it happens to me all the time as well00:11
rahdukeCmdr_W_T_Riker: thanks very much00:11

DasEiroscogruen: did you try cheese on it ?00:15

bpietroIt isn't difficult to me download zope2.11 deb package and install it, I want know whether there is some reason for include in official index files bunch of Zope utilities and not include Zope itself. Anybody knows?00:24
tucemiuxyoshie, you can send me a PM if you want00:24
latagorePresuntoRJ: I think you typed update twice before =o But okay00:24
DasEiroscogruen: canon and logilink have good compatibility, most times the handhelds offer cf support, so latest can have a cheap reader then, but usb should also work00:24
roscogruenthe other cameras we have are not on the list and work w/o installing anything.  hope same is true with this new camera.  thx DasE00:24
PresuntoRJlatagore:  nope, there must be a $sudo apt-get update00:24

sjmWillWork4Foo, no problem.  Glad to help00:27
PresuntoRJthe newer empathy has an icon on the notification area which helps unhide some of the features, and blinks when you are called privately on a IRC msg00:28
PresuntoRJlatagore: nope, I hate this too, but you can keep looking at the history of the conversation for the same effect00:28
sjmlatagore, PresuntoRJ , My opinion, use empathy for IM and xchat for IRC00:28

snow_ruCoronade, what is C++0x ?00:33
PresuntoRJfenrir265: you must be aware of what you are doing because you could end up crippling your system beyond repair... any way, you can get any application uninstalled if you know its package name (usually, nut not necessarily, the name of the application)... then a $ sudo apt-get autoremove --purge   will remove the package and autoremove any dependencies installed that do not affect any other program installed, and will clear any config files to get ri00:33

Cmdr_W_T_Rikertracy69: a whole disk doesn't immidiately make much sense, maybe you mean all the linux partitions as seen as a whole?00:41

tracy69the partition is called sdb5 thats all i managed to see in conky00:43
DasEilzinucs : I know, zergling asked, and to write w is enough00:44

sjmtracy69, you might try #conky00:45

bpietroDasEi, thanks, but still don't see zope2.11-....-i386.deb package as in pool/directory of official repos. So I think, (a) somebody forgot insert it in index list or (b) there is some reason, why it wasn't be included. Because all guides start with "install Zope: apt-get install zopeX.XX, where X.XX is major and minor release number" When I do so, result is "can't find this package"00:49

stunts513ilovefairuz: you sure i can run 1280x1024?00:51
stunts513o my mom called me00:51
stunts513thats y i was in other room00:51
zerglingis this the right way to word this?  sudo chown aj:aj  /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf00:51
sjmtracy69, why do you need the whole disk rather than the partitions?  Linux works with the filesystems inside the partitions not the disk (there is no filesystem on the disk, it's inside the partitions)00:51
stunts513and im not a child... im a computer tech, but more so on windows..00:52
tracy69sjm cuz i have many partitions so if i wanted to put all of them it will cover whole screen so i wanted to see hdd instead00:52
mibberhow can i create a new user and have it work on ubuntu from terminal? I did useradd, but it says nautilus needs home folders, etc, and this like IECheckfile or something00:52
mibbera command i can use to generate all the necessary stuff besides useradd?00:53
newfedoranoobafter i install the nvidia driver on my machine in ubuntu 10.04 it gives ne a very crappy resolution00:53
sjmtracy69, but the filesystem is what is being filled and those reside inside the partitions.  You might see if you can script (in conky or outside) something to sum the different partitions.00:53
ilovefairuzstunts513: sorry, typo!00:54
newfedoranoobhttp://pastebin.com/Nc8Rme1t00:54
newfedoranoobhere is the paste of lspci00:54
DasEimibber: sure,  sudo adduser mibber00:54
newfedoranoobcan some1 help me with this00:54
mibberDasEi: i did that but now when i login as the user it complains that he doesn't have like /home/mibber, /home/mibber/desktop, etc00:54
DasEimibber: adduser not useradd00:55
mibberDasEi: ah okay thanks00:55
sjmmibber, I can't remember the exact switches to create the home directory, but you can "man useradd"00:55
mibber-d maybe?00:55
DasEinewfedoranoob: what's the problem ?00:56
stunts513olovefairuz: ok im assuming i just need to type:sudo stop gdm, then suudo start gdm, and maybe clik restart x if it pops up a message?00:56
newfedoranoobbad resolution00:56

realubotDo you think it's possible to adjust overscan at a plasma-TV using xrandr to get the Desktop fit the TV screen?00:57
ilovefairuzstunts513: add the line but change it to the same resolution00:57
newfedoranoobDasEi, i installed the recommended driver for nvidia also00:57
stunts513ok got that done00:57
newfedoranoobso i have no idea what the problem is00:57
DasEinewfedoranoob: (please put my Nick when answering) , thats the internal on a lappi you use there ?00:57
newfedoranoobDasEi, yes but the screen is broken so i use an  ex monitor00:58
newfedoranoobwell a tv00:58
stunts513ilovefairuz: so i just run those commands now right?00:59
mibberah so i created a new user but it didn't work - can someone help me? Basically the desktop loads fine, but when i click any icon, nothing happens, the desktop refreshes -- any log files i can check or anything? maybe something isn't loading correctly on start?00:59
DasEinewfedoranoob: sudo apt-get install pastebinit01:00
DasEinewfedoranoob: dpkg -l | grep nvidia | pastebinit                   , give URL from terminal here01:00
sjmmibber, create the directory manually, change ownership to the user and add the home directory in /etc/passwd.01:00
newfedoranoobDasEi,  umm im on fedora rite now cause i cant read anything on ubuntu01:01
mibbersjm: the adduser command worked for that01:01
stunts513ok uh im going to run that command so il be disconnected from my wifi and such, brb01:01
carandraugI am having some trouble restoring from a backup I made with rsync. During boot, I get a initramfs shell because it can't find the root device (it's looking for the old HD altough I already changed fstab)01:01
sjmmibber, ok.  you said above that it "didn't work" .  I'm glad it's fixed now.01:02
ilovefairuzstunts513: just add those to xorg.conf and restart x01:02
DasEinewfedoranoob:I see, will problaby be nouveau-firmware that collides there, but would be good to know which nvidia packages are installed, once the obsolete one are removed, run sudo nvidia-xconfig and restart xserver01:02
mibbersjm: well, the user account was fixed, the desktop still doesn't work though01:02
sjmmibber, did you log out and back in?01:02
mibbersjm: yep01:02
newfedoranoobok01:02
DasEinewfedoranoob: you can do this from terminal, too, so don't need x for it01:03
mibbersjm: its the original problem of why i created a new account, that happens will all accounts, namely i get this error when running 'startx' but i'm not sure if its the problem: 'error setting MTTR (...) inappropriate ioctl for device(25)01:03
newfedoranoobDasEi, thx i will try when i boot ubuntu01:03
sjmmibber, so it's no longer a problem with the home directory?01:04
DasEinewfedoranoob: dpkg -l | grep nvidia shows you the nv-packets, ii means installed on that output01:04
mibbersjm: errr no01:04
sjmmibber, sorry, can't help more right now on that.01:05
mibbersjm: cool thx01:05

CkhiKuzadhello!01:06
mibberDasEi: the original issue mainly -- desktop loads fine but when i double click programs it just refreshes and doesn't run anything, i ran console and did sudo service gdm stop, then 'startx', and this desktop doesn't work either, when i switch back to console i only have 1 error, namely 'error setting MTRR (base = 0xd00000000 ... ) Inappropriate oictl for device (25)01:07

PresuntoRJross_: well, it is the brand of the videocard, but if you are not sure, $ lspci should list many hardware including your video card01:28
DasEimibber: is there any floppy in the drive ? remove it; apart from that , you should for a test remve pulse audio, to see if that causes the lock, and also have alook at group permissions, if the lockup just happens to your new user01:28
PresuntoRJross_: if its nvidia, it will say there01:29
DasEilspci | grep -i vga,  PresuntoRJ: ross_:01:29

latagoreHi, I'd just like to know how to modify GRUB so it doesn't auto pick an OS02:42
Izinucsrjt: could be networkmanager interfearing with your manual attempt02:43
Coronade<sigh>02:43
stunts513you don't want to fix it manually i dont suppose?02:43
Dr_Willislatagore:  you want it to never auto-start a selection. you want it to wait forever for you to hit enter?02:43
rjtNetworkManager is not even on the CD at this point.  live-initramfs calls ipconfig which does a dhcp that times out.02:43
uRockilovefairuz, You were right in the advice earlier. When changing from 64bit to 32bit without changing the /home there were no problems.02:43
Izinucs!grub2 | latagore Look for the "timing" line02:44

mmnicolasdoes anyone have any experience with live-helper and upstart, im trying to set up root auto-login but /etc/init/tty1.conf gets rewritten by some other scripts, during boot its says these scripts are loaded from /scripts but no such irectory exists02:44
latagoreDr_Willis: considering GRUB autostarts an OS that doesn't work properly at the moment, yes02:44
Dr_Willislatagore:  edit the proper entry in /etc/default/grub  to set the timeout. I think -1 waits for4ever.02:45

Dr_Willismmnicolas:  ive made a /etc/init/ script taht started a bash terminal as root on a cons0ole at boot time. - if thats what you are trying to do.02:45
Dr_Willislatagore:  if not using grub2. then you will need to edit the /boot/grub/grub.cfg i belive.02:46
Izinucslatagore: then /etc/default/grub is the wrong place.. /etc/boot/grub I seem to remember is close02:46
mmnicolasDr_Willis: this will probably get overridden by the live scripts too02:46
Izinucslatagore: actually Dr_Willis has it right :)02:46
sfearsgrub2 uses /boot/grub/grub.cfg02:46
Quantum_Ionman I hate grub202:46

mmnicolasDr_Willis: but then it will also start the other tty1.conf02:48

Micheal`hmmmm like gnome is a 3 min install?03:29
sfearslatagore: perhaps some kind of script is being executed pre-login crashing your system?  i wouldn't know where to start with that.  does recovery mode freeze as well?03:29
Maahestheyranos, why would you want to enable root?03:30
theyranosMaahes, liznucs: Because I need to do apt, and a recent apt-get dist-upgrade broke sudo03:30
DistantStarMicheal`, Well, I'm running Ubuntu remember. :) I'm not compiling from source.03:30
Micheal`even then03:30
latagoresfears: Recovery mode works fine03:30
Izinucstheyranos: boot to the recovery kernel.. you're root there by default03:31
Maahestheyranos, you might be better off using a live CD, Chrooting into your drive, and dist-upgrading from there.03:31
Maahesor rolling back, however you prefer03:32

Maahestheyranos, eek.03:33
MaahesI'm not qualified to help at that point ^_^03:33
theyranosmy choices are chrooting as i have done, or ssh. But I can't ssh in as root for obvious reasons, so I have to ssh in as my normal user, who can no longer sudo03:33
Maahesmy machine no longer recognizes my trackpad as existing since coming out of suspend, at least its not listed when I do xinput list how might I find the device, reinintialize it, and re attach it to x?03:33

mibberhi guys, when i double click a program on the desktop while simulatenously watching syslog, i dont see any changes to syslog -- shouldn't this be logged?03:34
Jordan_Utheyranos: What happens when you try to use sudo? What package do you think broke sudo?03:34
theyranosMaahes: I assume you've already tried this, but do you know what kernel module is driving your trackpad? You might be able to reinit with a simple rmmod followed by modprobe.03:34
sfearslatagore: looks like it loads vesa display configs.. i've had problems at login before with nVidia chips, that's why i asked if your tty's freeze03:35
latagoreMibber: shouldn't you refresh or something?03:35
Maahestheyranos, THANKYOU, I had forgotten the damn command, the only thing I could remember was depmod03:35
theyranosJordan_U: Something to do with NFS. Sudo itself works, but I'm no longer in the admin group... or any group for that matter.03:35
mibberlatagore: refresh what03:35
latagoremibber: your log viewer03:35
mibberlatagore: i am using tail -f /var/log/syslog03:35
JabDesignso it looks like ubuntu's epiphany cannot connect to AIM anymore03:35
JabDesignanyone else experience that?03:35
sfearslatagore: since your tty's freeze i would say it's not a display driver problem, but nVidia stuff is pesky sometimes.  Try loading a generic xorg.conf file and see what happens03:36
latagoresfears: I wouldn't know how to do that03:36
Jordan_Utheyranos: Is your /etc/group on NFS?03:36
sfearswell.. first try the nomode set boot option03:36
latagoremibber: I don't know from here; I'm only a beginner at Linux03:36
theyranosJordan_U: NIS, sorry, and yes.03:36
latagoresfears: I tried it before and I know it works03:36
theyranosJordan_U: The existence of my user account, and the fact that it should be in admin, are both NIS things.03:37
sfearslatagore: it sound kind of like the nomodeset option loads generic display options which might solve your problem, if so we've diagnosed your problem and can play with your xorg settings then03:37
latagoresfears: Alright, though I wouldn't know how to change xorg03:38
theyranosI can probably just tweak /etc/group on the virtual machine to get back in...03:38
sfearsohh.. well then latagore, "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg"03:38
Tater3000I need help, when my computer goes into suspend I can't get it out, how can I fix this, its a hp pavillion dv800003:38

Jordan_UAlbertoP: You're welcome.03:41
sfearsthat command should create a xorg.conf file03:42

* sfears adds conjecture to his dictionary03:47
Jordan_Uadante: Easiest way is "sudo apt-get remove compiz"03:47
sfearsthe world is flat, that is my conjecture03:47
theyranosIzinucs: Thanks. Donno why I didn't think of that :-)03:47
i_is_brokelatagore, oh i love it on win 7, just not for my linux box... its got great graphics, just amd needs to make it easier for everyone to install them right.03:47

theyranosDistantStar: Have you already ruled out something locking your sound devices? sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*03:48
Micheal`avi_, well if you clone the whole drive and them reinstall the whole system are you just going to copy parts over?03:48
i_is_brokelatagore, did you use the alternate disk to load ubuntu on your laptop?03:48
sfearsalright latagore, does anyone know how to create a generic vesa xorg.conf file if "dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" doesn't work?03:48
Micheal`avi_, and if you restore the clone well you gain nothing from reinstalling03:49
Izinucsadante: I realize that.. however I think he was mixing gnome with x.. if gnome doesn't load or hangs X may still be running.03:49
DistantStartheyranos, They are all controled by pulseaudio, if that's what you're asking.03:50
latagorei_is_broke:  I installed it onto my hard drive and then booted03:50
avi_Micheal`, No I don't intend to like "drag" the files over. I am hoping for a system where I can click "backup/clone" in my current install of Lucid, then, after i've wiped the HD and set up the partiton map as I like, install vanilla lucid to the partition i've assigned for it, and simply hit "restore" and walk away. Then I'll come back and my system will be *exactly* as I left it.03:50
avi_Micheal`, Yes, I should've mentioned that, the reason I'm reinstalling is not about Lucid.. it's actually about OS X.03:50
avi_Micheal`, But sadly I can't just reinstall the OS X partiton, because OS X03:51
Micheal`freebsd gotcha03:51
nimbioticsi downloaded a file with extension .bundle How do I install this package?03:51
avi_Micheal`, 's restore CD crashes when it has to deal with ext4 cds.03:51
Micheal`thats right03:51
latagoresfears: I'll google it03:51
adanteIzinucs: the person who asked was me - and x isn't running. I want to disable it so the next time i run gnome-session in my X session it does not try to start compiz (and hopefully no longer crashes)03:51
Izinucsavi_: simply backing up /home will retain most if not all of your settings.. then the aptitude line to clone the packages that are installed should do it..03:52
Micheal`avi_, are you looking to duel boot?03:52
theyranosDistantStar: unfortunately I'm not familiar with pulseaudio, so I'm out of my league. Sorry03:52
soreauadante: Jordan_U has the best probable solution with 'sudo apt-get remove compiz'03:52
avi_Izinucs, It probably will. Wait a sec I need to explain my situation more to the both of you.03:52
Izinucsadante: then uninstall compiz..03:53
Baxniei'm trying to connect using ssh, but after connect, server instantly closes connection03:53
theyranosDistantStar: May want to try to kill pulseaudio and test with aplay again just to be sure that's not it, if that's what came up from that fuser command.03:53

adantesoreau, Izinucs, Jordan_U : ok, thanks guys03:53

avi_Micheal`, Izinucs, Okay. I currently have a tripleboot system that works fine mostly, on my mac. (Win7, Lucid, latest OS X). Except my OS X partition needs to be reinstalled. To do that, because of complications/limitations with Apple's reinstall functions, I need to basically WIPE the whole drive and then set up 3 partitions.. then install OS X+Win7+Lucid. So naturally there's nothing wrong with my Win7 and Lucid partitions, hence my desi03:55

Agu10or is there any offline installer so I don't need internet?03:56
sfearslatagore: i see something else here, but i'm hesitant to try becuase i don't want to leave your recovery gui useless, but if you kill your xserver session, in ubuntu "/etc/init.d/gdm stop" then run "X -reconfigure" you may get to manually setup your xorg.  Just make sure you choose VESA drivers03:56
pLrAgu10, no. You must install virtualbox to run it03:56
Baxniegreezmunkey: after it connects, i get a message talking about last login, etc and then it closes connection03:56
Baxniestrangest thing is that i just connected with filezilla with no problem03:57
avi_Izinucs, Well I'm pretty sure just an ext4 partition for my system and a swap file. I installed Ubuntu to use the remaining free space.. so whatever sort of partition scheme that would be is what I've got.03:57
greezmunkeyBaxnie: ok. Can you access the target machine via console, to run // sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog // so you can troubleshoot further??03:57
latagoresfears: That's okay, I can always boot from USB (hopefully there is a command line)03:57

Baxniei cant acess it via terminal cause i disconnects as soon it connects03:58
greezmunkeyBaxnie: do you have keyboard access to the target machine?03:58
theyranosDistantStar: Okay, when you start alsamixer, what do you get for Card and Chip? Does that correspond to your sound card or the new card you installed?03:58
Baxnieno03:58
Izinucsavi_: ok.. if you let the installer do it's own thing then you have 2.. one that is everything but swap and then a swap partition.. if clonezilla will do ext4 then that's the way to go. the answer to that though is a bit nebulous03:58
theyranos\me is still guessing03:58
latagoresfears: I can't seem to stop it03:59
greezmunkeyBaxnie: what command are you issuing to access the box? (dummy up the actual IP address)03:59
sfearsyou need to be in a tty screen, you can't kill X if your using it03:59

DistantStartheyranos, According to pavucontrol, ALSA plugin-in reads [npviewer.bin]. Alsamixer shows the on board sound card being read and active and maxed out.04:00
avi_ Izinucs, from what i've found out, Partimage does _not_ currently support ext4, while dd (i think that's more trouble than it's worth) and CloneZilla support ext4.04:00

Baxniei noticed the issue after entering the screen command04:01
avi_Izinucs, Okay. So let me get this straight. Now that you know what I'm looking to do.. I right now go and install clonezilla and tell it to clone my whole HD to some file/folder on an external HD I've got. Then once I set up the other OS's as I like, I install Lucid from a normal install CD, install CloneZIlla, and then hit "restore" or something?04:01
sfearsdd makes an exact copy.. so if the iso is bootable DD will make a bootable copy04:01

iShanwnWHow can I add a panel in 10.04?04:02
avi_Izinucs, sfears, I think my problem is that I don't know how to go about "restoring" a partiton from a .iso I make of it. So let's say I used dd to save my current machine's HD to an ext HD, how can I go about restoring that?04:02
greezmunkeyBaxnie: wierd. Have you ever tested logging into the box multiple times before you installed screen?04:02

kerdallooking for video to ipod04:04
Izinucsavi_: ah.. but you said earlier that you weren't going to reinstall... clonezilla will put back all data in the same partition.. no choice.. so if you don't want to reinstall then clonezilla will do it for you maintaining the same partitioning sceme you had previously.. if you want to separate /home to its own partition after the restore you can do that anytime.04:04

latagoresfears: I rebooted the console04:04
avi_sfears, Wait wait. So I guess I'd need to boot into a LiveCD to do that, right? Because I can't restore to the partition that I'm running dd from..04:04
sfearsavi_: you may need to use su in order to copy some of the files at which point may cause issues when you put them back becuase you wil be a different user04:04
greezmunkeyBaxnie: you have to issue the ssh command in such a way as to reconnect to that session. I'd have to look that up, but I'm sure there are others here who can give that up off the top of their heads.04:04
Izinucsavi_: clonezilla has it's own live cd04:04

It's got an ASUS M4N75TD motherboard that has a "DRAM" LED that (I think) is supposed to show when the RAM isn't quite right, and it lights up with both sticks of (matched) DDR3 are in; it blinks when only one is in. The manual is kinda vague; anyone know what the LED sho04:05
velociostrichuld be doing or where I could find out, and if there's some way of pinpointing whats wrong?04:05
greezmunkeyBaxnie: btw... uh, ok.04:05
sfearslatagore: recovery modes do boot into root04:05
sfearsi think04:05
velociostrichsfears: they give you the option of dropping to a root shell or w/e04:06
Izinucsavi_: the other issue you'll have to deal with is grub.. it most likely will have to be reinstalled.04:06
avi_Izinucs, Ahhh. I see. That makes much sense. So to "save" the current partiton i need to boot from the CD... then, once I need to restore, I boot to the same CD again, and point it in the right direction of where to load/save from/to.. correct?04:06
latagoresfears: So what would stop someone from accessing my computer and deleting everything04:06
sfearsyou need to remove the recovery mode lines from your grub file04:06
Izinucsavi_: basically.. the clonezilla cd will make use of the external usb drive to store the image.. and restore the image04:06
avi_Izinucs, I think i'll go with CloneZilla.. I think it is more suited for my purpose and makes things a bit easier.04:06
latagoresfears: Okay; I'll ask about that after I get this silly thing solved04:07

velociostrichlatagore: if you remove those lines, you can still access the recovery modes (and make it secure) by putting a password on your bios and disable booting from removable media, then when you want to use a recovery mode, log into the bios, re-enable booting from removable media, then use a live CD to chroot into the HD, edit the grub lines, and re-install grub so that they're visible, but that's only necessary if you're really paranoid.04:09

velociostrichlatagore: the padlock? lol04:11
sfearswell latagore i think your issue is with your xorg file, or lack of /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.  you need to load a generic xorg.conf using vesa drivers, from there you can install functional ATI drivers to get good resolution and 3D rendering.  since your "dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg" doesn' t seem to work i'm not sure what your next step is, but figure out how to get your vesa drivers in your xorg.conf file04:11

greezmunkeySubCool: what kind of background?04:52
nocturnusadminewb: what now?04:52
nocturnusadminewb: should i kill myself?04:52
heizmannIzinucs :-/ bad news :-/04:52
SubCoolgreezmunkey, normal kde blue04:52
adminewbnocturnus, i gather from what you said that your USB disk is partitioned in the old fashioned MSDOS scheme, true?04:52
order12qldvic217, I am thinking installing 8.04 again04:52
order12that was the most stable04:52
Izinucsheizmann: as I remember prelink and preload were used to speed a system up but isn't necessary these days04:53
greezmunkeySubCool: can you do a ctrl+alt+F2 to get to a console prompt?04:53
SubCoolgreezmunkey, i think i forgot a package while installing KDE, but- i cant figure out which one.04:53
SubCoolim already at a console prompt-04:53
qldvic21710.04 is quite stable as a fresh install, plus its a LTS so you won't have to upgrade and still get updates for 3 years04:54
SubCoolthats all that shows up- the blue background, and a console prompt. Thats it04:54
heizmannIzinucs :) okay... Personally, I do not see the difference before and after the installation of preload and prelink.04:54
soreauheizmann: It's just called compiz now, the 'fusion' part has been dropped. This is how to use the compiz build script for git:  sudo apt-get install git-core && git clone git://anongit.compiz.org/users/soreau/scripts && ./scripts/build_compiz++04:54
greezmunkeySubCool: Try typing startx04:54
SubCoolgreezmunkey, ya- that worked04:54
adminewbnocturnus, as in fdisk sets up as many as 4 primaries, or 3 primary + extended, etc04:54
SubCoolgreezmunkey, it brings me to gnome- well it does if i exit out of the kde, and then type startx04:54
nocturnusadminewb: what?04:54
nocturnusadminewb: its primary04:54
order12qldvic217, whats the difference between the normal and LTS version ? 8.0404:55
nocturnusadminewb: its partioned in 10G block fat32 starting at the first sector04:55
heizmannsoreau :) good news !!! :D !! All is in 1 script???04:55
adminewbdo you have more partitions that just the 1 primary, which is marked as active/bootable?04:55
SubCoolgreezmunkey, in kde when i type that, it says user not authorized to run the X Server04:55
soreauheizmann: That repo has a set of scripts to do different things04:55
greezmunkeySubCool: ok, that's more info than I had to start with...I think you broke it.04:55
soreauheizmann: but yes, it builds all compiz components from git with that sscript04:55
qldvic217order12: LTS is supported for much longer. 8.04 was an LTS too, but that will only be supported for another year while 10.04 will be for three04:56
SubCoolgreezmunkey, lol- broke it? all i did was install kde!!!04:56
adminewbnocturnus, I follow on the fat32, but not clear what 10G block means04:56
SubCoolgreezmunkey, gnome works04:56
greezmunkeySubCool: how did you install KDE?04:56
nocturnusadminewb: 10G partition, starting at the 'front' of the drive, sector 004:56
SubCoolCLI04:56
nocturnusadminewb: the disk is 150G, but the partition is 10G04:56
SubCoolsudo apt-get install kdm, kubuntu desktop kdecore04:56
greezmunkeySubCool: can you back it out, and try again?04:56
SubCoolblah lah04:56
order12qldvic217, I dont want 10.0404:56
heizmannsoreau :p hum, good!!! Very good! No problem with this script??? (updating, locales (e.g. french locales), special configurations of x11... ?04:56
SubCoolidk- how do u do that?04:56
order12will wait another year for it to become stable04:57
adminewbnocturnus, so then you have some 140Gb free on disk, undedicated to any partition04:57
order12I think its eating up my system04:57
soreauheizmann: If it fails in any way, it should guide you to the compiz forums or the compiz channels here on irc04:57
nocturnusadminewb: yes, but its at the end04:58
bsmith093Is there a definitive list of dvd ready codecs for a video file, so i dont have to waste time transcoding it04:58
nocturnusadminewb: and its not partiition, so it wouldnt attempt to boot it04:58
adminewbnocturnus, I may be mistaken on this, but it seems ill advised to start a FAT32 partition at sector 0, which is the boot sector04:58
samoangunnerHI need some help04:58
greezmunkeySubCool: sudo apt-get remove -purge ... ... ...04:58
nocturnusadminewb: no its okay, the partitioner reserved space for the MBR04:59
heizmannsoreau :) thanks!... but before to exec the command ./scripts/build_compiz++ may I uninstall my actual (git)compiz? :)04:59
SubCooloh my- lol04:59
soreauheizmann: But there is no special configuration.. if compiz 0.8 is already working for you, this should install compiz 0.9 into a nonstandard prefix, leaving your 0.8 install in tact04:59
samoangunneranyone having problems with the desktop crashing.04:59
SubCoolok04:59
bsmith093for example this: DivX MS-MPEG-4 Version 3 is what my file says under video codec and the audio is mp304:59
adminewbnocturnus so then your FAT32 starts at the next cylinder boundary or some such04:59
NeverCastHey question, What's up with the naming of so libraries ?04:59
heizmannsoreau :) ok... my actual compiz is installed on /usr/local04:59
soreauheizmann: You can do whatever you want but the script should be able to install and run regardless what ever else you have installed04:59
samoangunnerwhen it happens I can still move the mouse and thing more.04:59
nocturnusadminewb: yes, probably04:59
samoangunnerI cant even reboot05:00
soreauheizmann: The script default it /opt/compiz++ but you can change the PREFIX in the script if you like05:00
adonishello can anyone help me with VMware player and how to resize the VM window???05:00
heizmannsoreau :) but if is intalled on /usr/local ??? no problem wih that? Actually, I'm using the smo-script05:00
NeverCastin /usr/lib there are libraries, <somename>.so, but they have like version numbers appended to them? Why? and is there a way I can just keep the latest version or something? Because I'm having to go change config files with all these names.05:00
samoangunneran error comes up when I try reboot05:00
adminewbnocturnus in that case the question comes up about how grub2(?) may have set up your bootability05:00
samoangunneran I/O error05:00
heizmannsoreau (if you know what is it, of course ^^)05:00
soreauheizmann: you shouldn't have a problem other than having to setup ccsm after everything is installed05:00
Proxhotdoghi05:00
nocturnusadminewb: unetbootin uses grub105:01
travisquit05:01
travisexit05:01
nocturnusadminewb: actually there is no boot manager05:01
Proxhotdogdoes anyone know why when i tried to boot with live cd, it said i8042.c: No controller found05:01
heizmannsoreau :) I backup my datas, and let's go =)05:01
adminewbnocturnus, hmm haven't dealt with grub legacy for a long time05:01
samoangunnerI have reloaded many times and still the same05:01
nocturnusadminewb: there is no boot manager since there's only one partition05:01
adonisanyone know how to get VMware player to run full screen when running ubuntu????05:01
adminewbnocturnus not familiar either with netbootin05:01
soreauheizmann: Great, let me know if you have any trouble with it, in #compiz05:01
pie_timewhat's the command to find out how many watts my power supply is05:01
nocturnusadminewb: unetbootin is the official way to install this distro!05:01
SubCoolgreezmunkey, idk- doesnt look promising- that would take out my xorg, and xserver-org05:02
samoangunnerI also have it running on 3 other computer and all have the same problem05:02
samoangunnerplease help05:02
adminewbnocturnus that was not my impression05:02
heizmannsoreau ;) okay... bitchx is my friend in a tty, if all crash lol05:02
greezmunkeySubCool: you are right, that would be a pain...05:02
adonishello!05:02
=== phurl__ is now known as Phurl
adminewbnocturnus can't imagine how you can boot lucid without grub2, when you at least need to be able to choose a certain kernel?05:03
tracy69<adonis> hello05:03
SubCoolgreezmunkey, im logging into gnome now- so .. its something stupid. If its anything, the KDE splash never occurs... the console pops up when the splash should05:03
fred2040@Adonis, VMWare have an utility...  http://www.vmware.com/support/ws55/doc/new_guest_tools_ws.html05:03
nocturnusadminewb: because the bios is able to boot a device from reading the MBR, installing a partiiton manager installs it to the MBR05:03
tracy69how are u <adonis>05:03
greezmunkeySubCool: the best thing you can do then is to try to start kde, and then check your logs. Maybe you'll get lucky and find what the system is missing. You can backtrack it from there.05:03
SubCoolim missing something stupid- which is sad because im looking at a lot of tutorials, and they all say the same thing05:03
nocturnusso instead of seeing "grub2" in mbr, it will see "partition begins at space 123"05:03
heizmannsoreau so... it's time to go (continue my encoding with x264 ^^)... and test your script05:04
adonisim good thanks how are you05:04
Tempus_Fugitdoes anyone know how to update the AV Engine in clamtk antivirus05:04
SubCoolgood idea- where is that log? /var/log ....05:04
SubCool???05:04

tracy69tired a bit <adonis>05:04
adonisim new to ubuntu this is first time i logged onto IRC thru it :D05:04
Proxhotdogcongraz05:05
adminewbnocturnus so you have no choice at boot time which kernel it loads for you05:05
Tempus_Fugitadonis: Once you go Ubuntu you wont go back to windows05:05
SubCoolgreezmunkey, IT WORKS!!!05:05
greezmunkeyok, good. What did you do?05:05
SubCooli didnt do anything!!! lol05:05
heizmann<Tempus_Fugit> does anyone know how to update the AV Engine in clamtk antivirus <=== download the clamav-freshclam, and launch it :) (please remove your firewall if you have one)05:05
DistantStartheyranos, I found the solution. It was completely stupid that I'm embarrassed to say. The stereo cable was connected though to my motherboard. :P05:05
nocturnusadminewb: yes ... but since there's only one it should work05:05
greezmunkeySubCool: you threatened to remove it...05:06
SubCooltried to reinstall a couple things, logged out- logged into gnome, logged out- logged into kde05:06
adminewbnocturnus fair enough05:06
adonisi hope so! Im actually running back tracker 4 atm.. but just waiting for the month to end so i can download ubuntu!05:06
theyranosDistantStar: If you think that's stupid, then we're all morons. Glad you figured it out :-)05:06
SubCoolWOOHOOO05:06
Tempus_Fugitheizmann: why do i need to remove my firewall??05:06
adminewbnocturnus the burden in that case for making a bootable device is with the tool you used partitioning it, to lay down a workable MBR for linux05:06
mitermayerteste05:07

greezmunkeySubCool: bookmark this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=60184805:07

Geoffrey2I tried google, but a lot of the results are several years old...05:14
greezmunkeylaterz...05:14
adminewbnocturnus, not meaning to waste your time or anything, but what I see of the unetbootin package description, it hardly sounds like the standard way of installing lucid05:15
pfifoGeoffrey2, im not entirely sure that ubuntu is built for ppc, i think its i386 and amd64 only05:16
nocturnusadminewb: no it's the way to install usb sticks05:16
adonisi downloaded ubuntu 10.04 and booted it off USB but it ran so so so slow i couldnt even move the mouse properly! should i d/l a diff version?05:16
adminewbnocturnus, actually for that you can use Startup Disk Creator utility05:16
nocturnusadminewb: in windows?05:16
adminewbnocturnus in Ubuntu, the System / Admin menu05:17

S4ryTo burn Ubuntu iso ,  try Infra Recorder , ISO Recorder. or in Windows 7  just Right-click the iso and burn disc image'05:22
sticky_heh05:22
m1ck3yInfra works well for me, and if that's the problem you were having, you should have check the useful "How do I make a live cd" part of ubuntu's website.05:22
sticky_imgburn is the only way to go on windows05:22

daniel__d05:25
stunts513anyone know what to do when u are configuring you display with xrandr and you get an error saying "error configruing crtc0"05:26
adminewbnocturnus, you may have better luck if you use a utility to mount your ISO image as a virtual optical drive05:26
nocturnusadminewb: that will not write the MBR, which is in fact the problem05:26
nocturnusi can see the files being placed correctly on the drive05:26

Coronadei had this virus, and it did nothing but show me porn.05:31

adminewbnocturnus presumably it's a conventional windows install, it handles your partitioning as part of its lucid install process... ?05:32
m1ck3yCoronade: Being 15 is not a virus :P05:32
nocturnusadminewb: no - but it can install succesfulyl without partitoning05:32

adminewbnocturnus does your installer tell you when it's putting the grub legacy or other bootstrap on?05:34
pfifoTanvir, yes you definatly have a virus05:34
Tanvirpfifo, how can I solve this problem?05:34
infidwhy does ubuntu.com say the 64-bit version of ubuntu is 'Not recommended for daily desktop usage'05:35
infidi've used it on my desktop for a year05:36
adminewbinfid, that seems to be a source of much contention05:36
Coronadebecause with C and C++ developers get to mess with the size and location of memory.05:36
Coronadeso when 64 bit comes along, oh .. the processor's word size is now 64 bits...05:36
AlbertoPinfid: actually that's not the reason :)05:37
Coronadelet's just port everything to 64 bit (including the assembly) and hope it just works absolutely fine :) ?05:37

Coronadeg'night05:37
AlbertoPinfid: basically because flash and some other plugins are not available out of the box and ubuntu does not provide an automated solution for it :)05:37
infidAlbertoP: so it doesnt mean that even 64-bit users should download the 32-bit version?05:38
Coronadeflash is kind of important05:38
pfifoflash works fine in amd64 tho05:38

Tanvirpfifo, do you know how can I remove this virus?05:40
AlbertoPpfifo: nope, you need a plugin wrapper, since it is built at 32 bit :)05:40

tucemiuxbranden792, does banshee automatically find your mp3s like a virus?05:49
ljsoftnetcoldboot|home: it has a very simple interface, it plays a huge amount of list of video, audio files and disks05:49
brandon420lol, no, but you can set it to scan folders.05:50
Tanvirseidos, that's my last choice :(05:50
ljsoftnetZombie: but what?05:50
noisewaterphdcoldboot|home: banshee is definitely slimmer than amarok, but still has nifty web integration. Rythmbox is great if you just want a straight up player05:50
tucemiuxim installing banshee05:50
noisewaterphdI use banshee these days and like it fine05:50
seidosTanvir, well, if you can't recall what you downloaded outside the repositories, how can you possibly verify you haven't been hijacked?  did your system ever work?05:50
tucemiuxrhythmbox is awesome except it now automatically finds your music which acts like a virus and I hate that05:50
noisewaterphdamarok can perform a lot better if you use the mysql backend too05:50

pfifoTanvir, your problem is way too general to just solve, there are way to many things that could create this problem. THat leaves you with 2 choices, #1 reinstall ubuntu. #2 Go through your system and troubleshoot on your own and come back to us once you have a more (and highly detail) information regarding your problem05:52
Tanvirseidos, i downloaded skype only i think05:52
noisewaterphdLenin_Cat: are you talking about changing your kernel timer frequency, or your actual cpu frequency?05:53

matthewopersicoHello. I have a laptop - AMD Sempron2800+  .755 GH and 640 RAM. Yeah it's old and XP takes forever to boot. Can I put Ubuntu on this with reasonable performance? Do I use Desktop or Netbook version. Thanks05:53

seidosTanvir, you think?  well you have to know, not just think.  reinstall if you suspect your system has been compromised.05:54
noisewaterphdmatthewopersico: desktop version...but with your low ram, and I'm assuming shared memory integrated video, you should look into xubuntu instead05:54
ljsoftnetmatthewopersico: i recommend the Netbook version, which meant for low powered devices05:55

pfifoi like amarok06:08
S4rycoldboot|home, how about Enna ..06:08
coldboot|homepfifo: It was better before Amarok 2 came out. Now it's a bloated POS.06:09
noisewaterphdcoldboot|home: ya, amarok sucks in performance. But if you like it otherwise, it might be worth trying out the mysql backend for it, it does speed it up substantially06:10

meh3noisewaterphd, hmm is it possible that vmware nic drivers require an update?06:25
meh3or the wrong ones installed06:25
ZykoticK9mxe5, edit /etc/default/grub (as stated above) and change GRUB_DEFAULT=0 to your windows06:25
meh3because i know for a fact that ubuntu 10.04 server works fine with vmware including the network06:25
TiKmeh3: I use virtualbox i's faster :P06:25
noisewaterphdmeh3: assuming that you just barely installed vmware tools in your ubuntu vm, then they should be the latest on that side06:26
turt1emxe5:  or just install startup manager and set windows as default06:26
noisewaterphdmeh3: as far as vmware itself needing an update, I have no idea06:26
ZykoticK9meh3, VB is much faster - it's why VMware doesn't allow benchmarks to be posted06:26
thune3mxe5: many options, i recommend renaming /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober to /etc/grub.d/09_os-prober06:26
Guest25070thune3, well I rebooted last night and got a "kernel panic not syncing vfs" error. So I assumed that there is something wrong with that kernel and wanted to boot using another kernel. The thing is that grub2 is skipping because timeout is set at 0 by default. So I wanted to chroot into my system so I can change /etc/default/grub and run update-grub06:26
noisewaterphdZykoticK9: and XEN is even faster than that06:27
ZykoticK9noisewaterphd, i image kvm is as well06:27

Karen_mthere is no output06:48
S4ryKaren_m, O' okay.06:48
ZykoticK9Karen_m, <just a test, not a solution & assumes 10.04> if it was due to a kernel update, hold shift while computer starts to get the Grub2 menu, then select an older kernel to see if your sound works.  Good luck.06:50
Karen_mdoes the headphones port auto-sense?06:51
ZykoticK9Karen_m, depends on the hardware06:51
ZykoticK9Karen_m, see if you have a headphone/front level in pulse that might be turned down or muted06:51
Karen_mi don't06:52
mxe5ZykoticK9: What's the site for pastebin - Do not have bookmark handy ?06:52
thune3Karen_m: the fuser command has no output? so pulseaudio isn't running or the snd device doesn't exit. Did you do anything to sound system to get festival running?06:52

bnixy7I have setup my latest ubuntu version and setup my network for my home. When I transfer a file from XP to Ubuntu (documents folder), it has a lock which opens into read only. How can I fix this? i am new at this also.  Maybe I do not have full permissions.07:08
ZykoticK9mxe5, i know that all #ubuntu logs exist online - if you search for your nic and/or date, otherwise i imagine your client would have to be setup to be logging already.07:08
Black_Phantompfifo, sometimes the system freezes and the mouse stops moving for like 6 sec, sometimes goes gray and comes back fast, sometimes freez the tab and I should close the page. It happens mostly on youtube.07:08
pfifoBlack_Phantom, can you reproduce this problem at will?07:09
Black_PhantomIs like flash still facing nightmares with linux ?07:09
pfifoalways07:09
Black_Phantompfifo, no it just happens07:10
Black_Phantomsometimes I can even load a 720p without no troubles07:10
turt1eBlack_Phantom,  try installing htop  and have it running before you go to youtube.  then see what happens when you go youtube07:10
Black_Phantomsometimes even a 360p freezes07:10
pfifoBlack_Phantom, im thinking it might be ACPI or your screensaver07:10

mxe5ZykoticK9: I went back and forth on trying to decide to run the Netbook version or the regular Gnome desktop version I'm running on one of my desktops - have you ran the regular desktop version on a smaller 10" or so screen before ?07:14
Black_PhantomI leave my laptop on for days07:14
Black_PhantomDoes that affect the problem ?07:14
Black_PhantomBut I think its linux :/07:14
pfifoBlack_Phantom, ohh its a laptop, that makes it even more likely that its ACPI07:14
ZykoticK9mxe5, i chose to run regular desktop on my EEE1005pe with a 10" screen (i used to really like UNR, but am not a fan of UNE the 10.04 version)07:15
Black_Phantompfifo, I see, if it was the ACPI, how can I fix it ?07:15
pfifoBlack_Phantom, dose this happen more ofern when your running on battery or AC07:15
turt1ebnixy7, the files probably just got copied over as read only,  do you just want to know how to change the permissions on them?07:15

pfifoBlack_Phantom, blacklist the ACPI module07:20
Black_Phantompfifo, how to do that ?07:20
bnixy7turtle, sounds like a permissions issue?07:20
mxe5ZykoticK9: Yup07:20
DragonZuluIs Wubi a fair way to see how the OS would behave with hardware?07:20
DragonZuluWithout messing with partitions07:20
pfifoBlack_Phantom, first type 'lsmod' into your terminal, find the name of the acpi module and add it to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf07:21
Black_Phantompfifo, my cpu is 1.73 ghz intel core duo, and I can Google chrome already using 31% with 15 tabs open07:22
Black_Phantomsee*07:22
sambamountDragonZulu: both Wubi and LiveCD should test the hardware, though the speed is said to be slower using both than an actual install (especially with ext4)07:22
DragonZulusambamount: But it should give a general idea?07:22
turt1ebnixy7,  yeah...  how exactly where these files transfered?07:22
ZykoticK9DragonZulu, using the LiveCD is probably a "better" test actually07:22
pfifoBlack_Phantom, I dont think heavy CPU usage or low memory would cause your screen to go grey07:22
sambamountDragonZulu: it will give hardware compatibility, but not benchtesting speeds of things, such as graphics cards, etc.07:23
Black_Phantomwindow*07:23
pfifoBlack_Phantom, my crappy eeepc dosent do that atleast07:23
DragonZulusambamount: So I couldn't really get a good idea if my games would run under wine worth anything in Wubi ?07:23
Black_Phantompfifo, fair enough lol07:23
Black_Phantompfifo, i cant figure out which one it is there are many *stuff*07:23
ZykoticK9DragonZulu, check the winedb, much faster07:23
sambamountDragonZulu: you could see if they run, but not their speeds of running from an actualy install07:23
bnixy7turtle, I have a netbook, I use these documents daily for general purposes... i setup samba, shared the documents folder on ubuntu, got on my netbook, opened the shared folder on my xp machine, and drag/drop the document onto ubuntu.  opened it on ubuntu and says read only07:24
pfifoBlack_Phantom, try 'lsmod | grep acpi'07:24
sambamountanyone know where the default mountpoint is in ubuntu 10.04 for samba shares (like the mounted folders in the Places menu)?07:24
thune3Black_Phantom, low memory could cause the issue, i'm running of a flash drive and i/o stalls do cause application to become unresponsive (grey/dim) while waiting for io07:24
ZykoticK9sambamount, check ~/.gvfs07:25
Black_Phantompfifo, no results07:25
pfifoBlack_Phantom, dose the application turn grey/dim or is it your whole monitor that does it?07:25

Black_Phantomand sometimes other applications get unresponsive too and sometimes only the greyed one07:25
pfifoBlack_Phantom, ok in that case, it has nothing todo with ACPI, its just cause your computer is slow07:26
Black_PhantomPerhaps the 1.73 ghz ?07:26
ZykoticK9DragonZulu, i tried crysis and failed, never tried unreal 307:26

turt1ebnixy7, Ahh.. that's probably why they have been set to nobody.   Did the permissions tab allow you to change the file to read/write?  If not you will have to make the change as root07:27
pfifoBlack_Phantom, if you know how, try compiling your browser by hand with optimizations and tailored to your CPU, I did that on my mom's machine and she gets better respons time07:27
ZykoticK9DragonZulu, i haven't tried either - more into native games really my page at http://sites.google.com/site/alucidfs/gaming07:27

Black_Phantomdo*07:28
DragonZuluZykoticK9: Steam*07:28
bnixy7turtle, it will not let me change the permissions of the document.  How do I set up my user as root so these problems do not occur?07:28
thune3Black_Phantom: i guess I'm saying that the most likely candidate for the cause is i/o stall/wait. This can happen for several reasons.07:28

ZykoticK9DragonZulu, it's not coming :(  rumors where recently denied by a VP or something :(  </ot>07:28
DragonZuluZykoticK9: I have the Q3 disks too07:29
ZykoticK9DragonZulu, steam i mean07:29
DragonZuluZykoticK9: Maybe it was "Too hard and needed to be scrapped"07:29
Black_PhantomYou think its the CPU or the graphics memory ?07:29
DragonZululike the PS307:29
pfifoBlack_Phantom, its complicated, but you need it to compile with -O3 and -march=i686 or similar07:30
DragonZuluThen in about 2 years Dug or whoever will show up at a pengiun place screaming "Portal3 is coming to linux!"07:30

Jordan_Ubaltazar: Basically, yes. Just make sure that the .deb files you download are the same that apt-get/aptitude would be installing. You can do that by using Synaptic's package download script option or by getting them from packages.ubuntu.com and making sure you choose the correct Ubuntu release.07:59

pfifoljsoftnet, type mount or df -h at the command line to track down which partition it is that your looking for08:12
kimi_spLr: it says is already installed latest version.08:12
thune3kimi_s: and after that "apt-cache policy opera". the latest version from your repo is 10.61.643008:12
Jordan_Ujoljam: What is the output of "sudo blkid"?08:13
=== pbarros is now known as turt1e
kimi_sthune3: ture.08:13
kimi_sthune3: true.08:13
pLrkimi_s, ok now tell me the output for: sudo apt-cache show opera | grep ^Ver08:13
kimi_sVersion: 10.61.6430 pLr:08:14
thune3kimi_s: if it says that's installed, you have the latest version. it hasn't been updated since Aug 13, but 10.61 is the latest08:14
joljamJordan_U: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/QuwiVhBE08:15
kimi_sthune3: yes i know it the latest version. but the main problem is why they are not updating. i mena there are other packages which are ignored (failed) when i check the udpates.08:15
thune3kimi_s: ign means that there is no new information from the repository to be downloaded. ign==up-to-date08:15
bnixy7turtle, I have under samba, properties, for anyone to access the folders and write/viewable08:16
thune3kimi_s: but i think i'm misunderstanding you08:16
kimi_s thune3: i think you are not true. because after i check the updates, update manager says that there is no update. so why some one them are ignored ?08:16
kimi_s thune3:  yes you did not understand me.08:16
kimi_sanyway i will ask to forums.08:17
kimi_s thune3:  thank you!08:17
pLrkimi_s, the repositories are not made for lucid08:17
pLrkimi_s, thats y08:17
kimi_spLr: but how i update the Opera 2 weeks before ?08:17
Jordan_Ujoljam: Ok, so you have some type of RAID (or at least blkid thinks you do). Do you know anything about it?08:18
bnixy7turtle, now it is saying that I need to type a username and pw to connect to ubuntu.  and it will not let me access the folders anymore.  bah hum bug.  i need to re install ubuntu08:18
HBSCdoes anyone know how to set up an ftp with vsftp behind a wired router?08:18
thune3kimi_s: i have not seen anything which indicates an error of any kind. it would help if you actually show some kind of error. Your opera IS the latest version.08:18
kimi_spLr: also i had installed nautilus-elementary theme from this way.08:18
kimi_sthune3:  ok tank you!08:18
joljamJordan_U: I do not know about it08:18
pfifoHBSC, yes08:19
turt1ebnixy7, you said you checked EVERYTHING in the samba settings?  you may want to double check that you didn't check off a setting for requiring a valid user08:19
pLrkimi_s, u chose deb.opera.com/ stable non-free. this is the latest version in there08:19
Low-dang the ubuntu room is full08:19
Jordan_Ujoljam: Can you pastebin the output of "ls -l /dev/mapper/"?08:19
turt1ewhat version of Ubuntu are you running btw?08:20
HBSCpfifo, should I forward anything beside port 20-21 ?08:20
Low-10.408:20
kimi_spLr: ok tahnk you!08:20
pLrkimi_s, if you move to the unstable non-free you can update more often w/ more problems08:20
pfifoHBSC, tcp port 21 is all that is needed, unless you changed what port number it listens on. tcp/udp 20 is for something else (i forget what)08:21
Jordan_ULow-: It's always this way. If you have a question don't wait to ask :)08:21

Jordan_Ujoljam: You're welcome. Even if it does work you may want to consider disabling RAID in the BIOS and re-installing Ubuntu with the "nodmraid" option. What you have is called Fake RAID, called that because companies try to pass it off as true hardware RAID when all it is is some code in the BIOS and software raid. It's often a pain to deal with as Fake RAID is generally proprietary and poorly documented (if at all).08:30
turt1ebnixy7, sure08:30
Jordan_Ujoljam: The only real advantage is that you can boot windows from it. While linux can boot from pure software RAID, windows can't.08:31
S4ryI remember saving someone data files to back it up from his Windows through Ubuntu live-cd :)08:32
joljamJordan_U: In fact I do not want to have the ability to boot Windows08:32
thune3Chr|s: the control is found in Nautilus (the file browser) under Edit->Preferences|Preview|Sound File. If it is on, i would guess you don't have a codecs installed for that sound type, or it is not a type recognized.08:32

nogienugzhi guys, I have a problem with java jre. I often visit a site  ---> www.citiseconline.com, this website site doesn't display well, when i'm using ubuntu. but doesn't show any problem if i use windows... Second, in the website, when it always ask to install JAVA, but i ALREADY HAVE java installed... is anyone familiar w/ this problem?08:37
pfifonogienugz, you have to install the java-plugin part of java as well as the jre08:38
Ubuntu-monitorpfifo, I am using 8.04, dont see monitors there08:38
pfifoUbuntu-monitor, upgrade to 10.04 OR write your own xorg.conf08:39
Ubuntu-monitorpfifo, 10.04 ate all my stuffs, first mouse, then wifi then nvidia08:39
Ubuntu-monitorhow can I change the xorg.conf08:39
nogienugzpfifo, huh? but in the synaptic package manager, i already checked all the "java6" related packages, and installed,, is the java plugin different from those?08:40
pfifoUbuntu-monitor, writing your own xorg.conf is complicated, but there are pleny of resources on google and you can also view the manual by typing 'man xorg.conf' into a terminal08:40
pfifonogienugz, yes08:40
mosnoso in 10.04, if i change the user account password, shouldn't the system also update the gnome keyring password? if not, is there a way to enable this functionality?08:41

pfifojoljam, ok once your done there, you will have 2 normal plain jane harddrives, you can use a software raid with linux, but windows will nolonger be an option, or you can not use any raid at all, and just use the 2 hraddrives as is09:32
theadmincrekarasu: There are a few, try gufw for instance09:32

nogienugzguys, one more thing, i'm using sip in empathy to connect to my smsdiscount account. I'm using my logitec webcam both as a camera and as a MICROPHONE. But in empathy, the person on the other side of the line can't hear me. I can make calls and can hear the person on the other side, but he/she can't hear me... any ideas? I've check empathy's sound settings, but it doesnet show my sound devices in it09:33

nogienugzSc00t3r, that's what i was asking, i can't see that option in empathy, it doesn't show any info about my sound devices..09:35

pfifolinux_inferno, well, the logical next step is to install a 64bit version of that library and its dependacies. if you cant find a package for them there is alwys the old fasioned way10:47

umcguys, besides installing samba and sharing a folder, do I need to do anything to be able to map a network drive in windows 7 to access my home folder ? I did these steps, I can see my share in the network, but I can't figure out what users to use. I'm trying my ubuntu user and password and it won't accept it10:53
pfifofep, a swap PARTITON is a PARTITON on your harddrive10:53
logan_wolfumc, I don't think samba works well for win 710:53
umcit worked before I installed ubuntu. I had mandriva before and I could access my shared folder without problems10:54
umcbut there I have set up the share with some gui, not like here10:54
umcthere I had to add a user and password10:54
pfifoumc you need to set user/pass using smbpasswd10:54
linux_infernoS4ry pfifo - I hate myself... sudo apt-get install libxp6 did it... i didn't see the libxp6 package before because i was trying to autocomplete libX.... and blah blah blah case sensative eat a chode-sicle10:54
feppfifo: yes, and i gparted i have one swap (2gig), the main system partition (150gig) and some unalocated free partition, BUT i also got an extended partition (2gig) wich i didnt make, why ?10:54
falmogddavids: installed successfully. i played movie but it suggests to search for a plugin10:56
umcpfifo: ever encountered this ? http://pastebin.com/j6LeQmhf10:56
pfifofep it sounds like you chose to create your swap partition as a logical drive in the extended partion but you were expecting to create your swap partition as a primary partition10:56
fepi should have unallocated, system partition and swap partition, not an extra extended partiton too10:56
fepoh, ok10:56
dabukalamHi I've just switched out the motherboard on my laptop, and when turning it on, it gives me "Unable to Mount Filesystem". Yet, "ls /" shows the contents on my HDD, what's gone wrong?10:56
pfifoumc run smbpasswd as root by using sudo10:56
feppfifo: what should swap partition be? ext or prim?10:57
pfifofep either way will work, depends on your setup, if you only want 2 partitions then both as primary should be optimal10:57
umcpfifo: indeed, that doesn't error out, except that it says it can't find an entry for my user. so it's not the system user... I guess I need to create it somehow...10:57
feppfifo: i see, and someone says i should have the same as my ram, someone say the double, and some say no swap at all... what is the standard?10:58
fepwhen i have 6gig ram10:58
umcsmbpasswd -a user. got it :)10:58
pfifoumc, you were trying to set the password for root, you need to supply smbpasswd with the username you want to change the password for, read the help file for smbpassword to get a better idea of how the system works10:58
umcpfifo: I did smbpasswd umc10:59
umcbut samba didn't have that user10:59
umcbut I googled that I had to add it first with smbpasswd -a umc10:59
umcnow all works, even from windows 711:00
umcthanks for the tips11:00
skumarai have a bug (i think). My sound system was working well until just now when i start my pc i get no sound. when i open gnome-volume-control from terminal i get this error ** (gnome-volume-control:3280): WARNING **: Default sink stream not found. In the volume control i see my hardware internal audio but in output tab i dont see this hardware!!11:00
pfifofep, well double is the standard, the way pages work you need to have double or more for it to be completly effective, but in your case with 6gb of memory, you will probbaly never use swap unless your running some serious server daemons11:00
pfifoumc, enjoy11:00
fepsorry guys, i need an answer. what should the swap partition be? extended or primary?11:00
rwwfep: doesn't matter whether it's extended or primary11:01
pfifofep, go logical in your extended partition if you are unsure11:01

pfifojeepersz, thats not true, linux practically invented dialup12:08
jeeperszI can't download all the dumb stuff it says because I don't have an internet connection to do it12:09
arunkumar413hi friends12:09
pfifojeepersz, yes that can be a problem, download from elsewhere and then copy them to your computer12:10
jribjeepersz: how are you here now?12:10
jeeperszjrib: windows12:10
jribjeepersz: that's fine, use that12:10
jeeperszthose programs don't work in windows12:10
jeeperszI can't look at the website in ubuntu, either12:10
jribjeepersz: what programs?  Don't you just need some debs.12:10
jeeperszIt looks like i have to compile drivers12:11
jeeperszand identify my modem12:11
jeeperszand blah blah blah12:11
HeTaLWell, you didn't pay for it. If you don't like it, don't use it.12:11
jribjeepersz: well that's what you need to do.  It's possible, just seems like you don't want to do it.  Which is fine, you don't have to12:11
jeeperszI also didn't like the install. It was resizing my partitions before I even knew what it was up to. It could have said that was what I was agreeing to12:12
erdnasejeepersz, it took me 3days just to connect through my wlan. linux isn't windows.12:12
adi11pfifo | http://paste.ubuntu.com/486706/12:12
jribjeepersz: it doesn't resize partitions unless you tell it to12:12
erdnasejeepersz, ubuntu actually tells you everything.12:13
Stefanos90how does it slap?12:13
jeeperszjrib: I clicked on "install side by side" and the next thing I knew, it was resizing partitions and making new ones12:13
erdnasejeepersz, you should've read everything in there.12:13
HeTaLjeepersz: There is a bar there that you can slide to choose partition sizes.12:14
HeTaLThis is linux, not OSX.12:14
HeTaLAlbeit userfriendly, not idiot friendly.12:14
bazhangHeTaL, that's uncalled for12:14
pfifoadi11, it looks like your missing a huge portion of your dmesg, try this instead "dmesg|tail -n100"12:14
jeeperszit's just retarded. I could use a real partition manager just fine, but it's dumbed down to the point of being obtuse12:14
adi11ok thanks12:14
HeTaLbazhang: Did I say somethign wrong?12:15
jribjeepersz: I always thought the install was fairly explicit but if you think it should warn you more, file a bug12:15
bazhangHeTaL, the part about idiot12:15
jeeperszand then grub wouldn't install. That failed. So now i have ubuntu on a partition I can't boot to, and if I do, dialup doesn't work12:15
jeeperszyay, ubuntu!12:15
jribjeepersz: so what do you want help with now?  You seem to be going all over the p lace12:15
HeTaLbazhang: I understand. Just showing the difference between user-side interactions.12:15
erdnasejeepersz, Jeep this isn't windows.12:15
adi11pfifo | http://paste.ubuntu.com/486707/12:16
jeeperszerdnase: clearly. Windows isn't such a terrible mess ;)12:16
erdnasejeepersz, so why did you try ubuntu in the first placE?12:16
HeTaLjeepersz: If you don't like it, don't use it.12:16
kpkarljeepersz: because Ubuntu is a separate operating system, it is not possible to install it inside your windows partition12:16
bazhangkpkarl, sure it is. using wubi12:16
jribkpkarl: you can with wubi12:17
HeTaLkpkarl: you can12:17
hiexpojust got my twitter back working in pidgin what a pain12:17
pfifothats weird, dmesg isnt working like I expected it to, i guess it changed in 10.0412:17
aeon-ltdvm12:17
kpkarlbazhang: I meant the actually system files12:17
kpkarl*actual12:17
jeeperszerdnase: I didn't know, going into it, that it would resize my partitions when I clicked "install side by side" I didn't expect it to fail at installing grub, and I thought that it was pretty obvious to include things like dialup drivers12:18
pfifoadi11, try 'sudo blkid' and 'sudo fdisk -l' paste that12:19
HeTaLbazhang: I think now my comment sounds in place.12:19
erdnasejeepersz, try going through the installation process again. I'm positive that you can see that ubuntu is goin to resize your partition.12:19
kpkarljeepersz: I'm sorry you're having trouble with Ubuntu, may I recommend you try installing inside a virtual machine next time12:19
bazhangHeTaL, no it is never in place here. lets move on.12:19
adi11this are two difrentt  commands or just one?12:20
pfifoadi11, 2 different commands12:20
adi11root@adi-desktop:~# sudo blkid12:20

erdnaseGtg, dinner.12:20
jeeperszso why did grub fail?12:21
adi11pfifo | http://paste.ubuntu.com/486709/12:21
adi11pfifo | i think i have two swap partitions. am i right?12:22
kpkarljeepersz: how were you installing Ubuntu? via Wubi.exe or cd or usb?12:22
jeeperszkpkarl: cd12:22
LXCC-Vincenzohi all , i want take a byte from a file (not-textfile), using bash, anyone can help me?12:23
adi11pfifo | i think i forgot to delete the old swap :)12:23
pfifoadi11, it definatly looks like this device is not using the standard usb flash drive setup. You said that this thing said its compatable with linux, did it come with a CD?12:23
kpkarljeepersz: did you get an error message?12:23
jribLXCC-Vincenzo: try #bash12:23
pfifoadi11, no you have a extended partition and inside that partition you have a logical partition with a swap filesystem on it12:23
jeeperszkpkarl: Something vague about the grub pkg fialing to install12:23
jeeperszfailing, even12:24
LXCC-Vincenzook,ty jrib12:24
adi11pfifo | yes i google it and every where says its compatible with wins macs and linux 2.412:24
pfifoadi11, yeah, but did it come with a CD?12:24
adi11no cause some gave it to me to use it as pendrive12:25
adi11it was not new12:25
adi11 i dont have any usermanual or cd12:25
kpkarljeepersz: ok, I see. well, I know there was a problem with 10.04 and grub that has sense been fixed. Other than that, I can't really say much12:25
pfifoadi11, ok, weve run out of things to troubleshoot here. If i were you I would try a different usb cable, and also try it on a windows machine. And this is a longshot but who knows, try to boot from the device. If all that fails, you might have a broken peice of hardware12:27
adi11pfifo | the guy gave it to me told me that win xp recongized but his ubuntu not12:28
adi11pfifo | concerninc the logical partion swap do you think i can get that space back?12:28
pfifoadi11, when you try it on XP check to see what filesystem is on it, normally those things use fat32 but if its using something wierd that would explain it12:28
pfifoadi11, yeah you can delete both the logical and extended partition, then resize you main partition to use the whole drive12:29
jeeperszkpkarl: So what am I supposed to do? try to install grub manually?12:29
kpkarlpfifo: but if that were the case, wouldn't the player show in lsusb?12:29
=== lorenzosu_ is now known as lorenzosu
adi11pfifo \ with disk utility? i dont want to delete any data on this hdd...12:30
pfifokpkarl, im leaving that one as undefined, with dmesg borked all to hell, im asuming the lsusb and related utilities are broken12:30
adi11do you think i can do it without reinstall ubuntu?12:30
kpkarljeepersz: you could. Do you want to try that?12:30
jeepersznot really12:31
pfifoadi11, yeah use a livecd to do that, you dont want it to be mounted12:31
pfifoadi11, use gparted on the livecd12:31
jeeperszbut I have to do something at this point because I have partitions with ubuntu 10.04 on them that I can't get to ;)12:31
kpkarljeepersz: I can give you the command. Otherwise, to remove ubuntu you can delete the ubuntu partitions with gparted, then expand the windows partition, then use your windows CD to reinstall the windows bootloader12:32
adi11ok thanks pfifo12:32

pfifo_mrn_ver_, it has todo with the way memory is accessed, each byte of memory is identified by a number. when you create an array, it uses many bytes of memory. take for example a string "Hello World" the letter H would be stored at location x, e would be stored at x+1 and so on, thats called an offset12:57

bazhangerdnase, install ubuntustudio-desktop  the realtime kernel would be one major difference13:31

erdnasebazhang, I'm downloading ubuntu studio atm. Do I need to do anything else before I install ubuntu studio?13:32
bazhangerdnase, no need for the separate iso, the -desktop package will do it13:32

rgnrsimple enough14:04
pfifofrando, well, can you get access to a command line on your system?14:04
frandopfifo: yeah I can get into a root shell14:05
rgnri wanna partition my hdd  so that base system and installed  apps will reside on separate partitions14:05
rgnrlike in windows14:05
pfifofrando, try deleting your xorg.conf file and then start X with its built in defaults14:05
sebsebsebHi14:05
rgnrsystem and storage14:05
frandopfifo: did that, no help14:05
youngbloodpfifo,  I'm on a liveCD, when I select firfox i get a pop-up that tells me I need the broadcom drivers. I then install the drivers, but still no connection.14:05
rgnrso in case of failure i'll have to reinstall only os14:06
sebsebsebyoungblood: you can try Ndiswrapper with a Windows driver, if can't do it natively14:06
bazhangrgnr, separate home14:06
frandopfifo: weird thing, also tried a failsafe xorg.conf with driver "vesa" and I *still* get that very weird thing where the screen is first filled with some green-ish color and then slowly fades to white and then freezes14:06
bazhang!home > rgnr14:06
ubotturgnr, please see my private message14:06
pfifoyoungblood, yeah thats what i was going to suggest14:06
sebsebsebyoungblood: I just joined, what was the actsaul issue?14:06
pfifofrando, are you dual booting this machine?14:07
frandopfifo: however, when I select an older kernel in grub (right now 31-11-rt) I can get X to start with driver "vesa"14:07
frandopfifo: yeah also have an windows 7 installation on the machine14:07
pfifofrando, so its definatly not faulty hardware?14:07
youngbloodsebsebseb, I have a new Dell laptop with release 10.04 installed. I can't get any internet connection. My network card is a broadcom 4727. My ethernet card is Atheros Comm AR8152.v1.1. The package manager shows that module bcmwl-modaliases is installed. what should i look for next to get net connected?14:08
frandopfifo: nope, windows 7 works everything fine, and also before the update to 10.04 + switch from fglrx to radeon driver everything worked perfectly, including dri and compositng (with fglrx)14:08
pfifofrando, you should do a fresh install.14:08
Planet8What is the name of the desktop used in Ubuntu 10.04 netbook version?14:09
