JohnSQWhat is going on when you see a service that has as its source and ITS destination?00:00
usr13chilli0: The MS Windows intall will overwrite the MBR and destroy grub.  You will just have to fix it afterwards. See the info the others have provided you with for instructions.00:00

JohnSQIt is not a security problem?00:02
JohnSQI didn't do anything to make this happen though.  Why is it suddenly happening?  There are two of em.  Two different ports.00:02
Jordan_UJohnSQ: No, it's not.00:03
LxndrThunderbird hangs when I start it up. How can I make it stop hanging?00:03
JohnSQYes, but why twice on two different ports?  I don't understand00:03
Dr_Willistjubaluba:  i saw that message today on a 10.10 install.. but ive not noticed any issues.00:03
Jordan_UJohnSQ: What are the processes?00:03

Dr_Willisrobsonkarls:  Kubuntu = Ubuntu -gnome + kde00:12
__cool__JohnSQ: use something like 'sudo netstat -p | grep <number>'00:12
CkhiKuzadand no it does not cost anything.00:12

JohnSQ127.0.0.1 source, destination.  No program listed.  Service unknown.  This entry exists twice.  Only the port is different00:12

jdawgDr_Willis..It's an AGP ATI Radeon 9550 running on an INtel MB with Intel Pentium 5 CPU....could this have something to do with the system hanging at boot-up?00:14

Dr_Willisrobsonkarls:  try them both out You can easially install both on the same install. use what you like.00:14
JohnSQThey still there and haven't vanished00:14
JohnSQBut netstat says ESTABLISHED 17456/wineserver00:15
JohnSQSo I guess it is cause of wine00:15
Dr_Willisjdawg:  with ATI video.. its hard to tell.. definatly sounds like a video card issue.00:15

RayArnoldhello, i hope anybody can help me. i'm looking for the easiest way to create a complete backup/image of an fully encrypted hdd (alternate install, 10.04), so i can restore this to a new hdd in case of a hdd failure (like trueimage on windows for example). i googled a long time but didn't find a simple solution, although this should be a pretty basic and simple task. of course the backup/image should be encrypted (truecrypt container?), too, otherwis00:21
duffydackRayArnold, clonezilla00:21
jigaRayArnold, dd?00:21
duffydackoh encrypted.. I dunno about that.00:21
DonSliceDoes clonezilla use dd? if it does, an encrypted drive shouldn't make much difference.00:22
duffydackto backup encrypted, to encrypted, I`d just rsync00:22
duffydackRayArnold, do you want to backup TO an encrypted destination ?00:23
Dr_Willisbacking Up a partition may be better then backing up the whole HD also..00:23
jigaif you need byte by byte copy, dd it obviously the best way to go, if you want to minimize the file say there are some tools for that too00:23
RayArnoldduffydack: yes, for example to a truecrypt container.00:23
shaheeneryI'm looking for a way to restore /var/lib after I accidentally renamed it /var/lkl .  Is this a "re-install" moment?00:24
Dr_Willis!info fsarchiver00:24
ubottufsarchiver (source: fsarchiver): file system archiver. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.6.8-1ubuntu0.1 (lucid), package size 94 kB, installed size 280 kB00:24
Dr_Willisshaheenery:  boot live cd.  mount the / filesystem.. rename it back.. reboot00:24
Dr_Willisproberly doable without the live cd.. :) but  live cds are handy00:24
shaheenerythanks doc :)00:25
Dr_WillisI got a Boot entry in my GRUB to boot a Ubuntu.iso file for super-emergancies like that00:25
DonSliceAnyone having issues with Guake in 10.10, with regards to bashrc coloring?00:25
Dr_WillisDonSlice:  see #ubuntu+100:25
RayArnoldDr_Willis: but i want have a full backup i can restore  to a new hdd in case of a hdd failure.00:25
Dr_WillisRayArnold:  you can backup a partition easier often then you can a whole hd image.00:26
Dr_WillisRayArnold:  its a 'minor' differance . but often overlooked. :)00:26
intradershaheenery: would mv /var/lil /var/lib work?00:26
shaheeneryno because I wouldn't have permissions00:27
usr13RayArnold: You could just leave the extra drive in the machine and make ghost to it every once in a while.00:27
shaheeneryand I can't sudo because /var/lib is gone..... :/00:27
usr13shaheenery: Where did /var/lib  go?00:28
shaheeneryto /var/lkl00:28
RayArnoldDr_Willis: so you would use rsync for a complete system backup. does this work from a running system?00:28
sejwalHello everyone, don't know why this file "debug.log" pops in my home folder again and again, any way to silent it?00:28
RayArnoldusr13: it's a notebook00:28

usr13RayArnold: Oh, ok.. well I dono00:29
shaheeneryI sure did00:29
usr13RayArnold: netbook install?00:29
sejwalthis is what is written in that file ---> [0904/211241:ERROR:o3d/core/cross/message_queue.cc(402)] Failed to send boolean response to client handle : Broken pipe00:29
intradershaheenery: I did not think of that. However if you use something like Knoppix 6, it can see your stuff and change the name.00:29
dendritegreetings. im using grub2 to boot into 10.04, and i also have another distro on a secondary drive. that distro uses grub legacy, and will not let me set a custom vga widescreen mode such as vga=365.  is this something grub2 handles? or am i missing the gfx driver in the 2nd distro?00:29
RayArnoldDr_Willis: no00:29
shaheeneryyeah, basically a livecd fix00:30
FoolishOwlRayArnold, you can use rsync to backup a running system, except that you can't backup .gvfs if someone is using GNOME. However, you don't want to back up .gvfs anyway.00:30
usr13RayArnold: Can't he just change it back to lib ?00:30
shaheenerythat's what doc thinks too00:30

IanWizardIs it sufficient to just run update-grub to figure out the new kernels?  Or should I just configure the Debian (or Ubuntu) entries by hand?00:49

evanescentrebooting a few times fixes it01:00

circumbendibusi asked my question a while ago, should i keep asking it, or will someone get to it?  it has to do with screen resolution01:02
jribcircumbendibus: just repeat ~10 minutes01:03
timewritercircumbendibus, can you ask it again please01:03
circumbendibusok, so I just installed Lucid and it doesn't seem to auto-detect my monitor.  I would just change xorg.conf but that has been removed.  Xorg -configure won't work because I can't get the virtual terminals (ctrl-alt-[f1-f6]) to give me more than a blank screen. $service gdm stop does the same loopy thing and I have to restart.  Thanks!01:03
Prometheususr13: just a minute, the computer isn't playing nice with me =)01:03
intradercast: should I list the problems I have with 10.04? 'IanWizard' went of leaving conversation hanging.01:03
PrometheusI might just have to kick up a VM image and install ubuntu on it01:03
timewritercircumbendibus, did you installed the video drivers ?01:04
timewriterits ctrl alt shift F7 , if you want to drop gdm and get to console01:05

b1ankhey there, i have Ubuntu booting off of a USB stick as persistent that i made using the Pendrive util. i'm trying to mount /home to a hard disk /dev/sda2, it mounts fine manually, but when i put a record in the fstab (as root) it reverts to the default (w/o this entry) every time after a reboot. any idea why this might be happening01:06
circumbendibusbut i still have the problem that C-A-f6 makes me have to reboot.  should it be C-A-S-f6?01:06
timewritersame chip01:06
timewritercircumbendibus, do you want to ctrl + alt + shift + F7 ?01:06
Prometheususr13: after restarting networking, ifconfig doesn't show an ip anymore01:07

circumbendibusi can try, but ill probably have to reboot.  will i be able to make an xorg.conf?  because i put the default one in myself, and then i couldnt login after the loading screen01:07

Prometheususr13: I'll do that, thanks01:12
evanescentthanks but that's not really a solution01:12
evanescenti want to stop it from happening01:13
castevanescent: find root cause -> fix problem. step 1 in finding cause, *isolate*01:13
castevanescent: but sure, do whatever you want ;)01:13
evanescentso supposing restarting X fixes it01:13
evanescentthen what01:13
toniHeey , i already have WIne on my computer , but i still cant get Msn Messenger on my computer ..01:14
strangejust use amsn or something?01:14
castyou said rebooting a couple of times...rather than just once, which is curious01:14
evanescentit happens a lot. i figured it was just chance01:15
evanescentsometimes once works01:15
evanescenti'd say there's between a 1/3 and 1/2 chance of it happening on any given boot01:15
evanescentirrespective of whether it happened immediately before01:16

casti could, but that would involve me opening up a browser, which i think you could do instead of me ;)01:19
shaheeneryit's either ext3 or 401:19

shaheeneryit's ext something01:19
remotecast, try /exec -o grep ^http /etc/apt/source.list | head -101:19

castremote: sources.list, and that won't help you01:20
remotethat's where you configure the mirror(s) your system uses01:21
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with  superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli ) . Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For  graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with  sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo01:21
castremote: for a start the lines don't fit that format, furthermore they're not ubuntu mirrors and lastly, they're private mirrors01:21
remotewhat are you talking about?01:21
remoteyou said i should change mirror01:21

tjubalubahow to troubleshoot a gnome/ubuntu "programlauncher" menu item... nothing happens when i click it01:29
adversaryhello everyone :D01:30
intradertjubaluba, have you tried the item from the terminal?01:30
hiexpowhat app is it tjubaluba01:31
Dekonegagood night01:31
intradertjubaluba, other items are responding?01:31
hiexpotjubaluba, what application01:32
tjubalubaintrader, hiexpo: Yes, and the app is .sh script launching a ruby IDE ... that does require some of my accounts .bashrc env variables01:33
VerminatorI have bee using freenode for a while, but only now registered, when I log on, it tells me the nick is already registered and to use "identify <password>". why is this happening and how do i fix it? I'm using Empathy as mu client.01:33
VerminatorBTW, when I use "identify <password>", all is well, so I'm pretty sure its a configuration issue01:33
Jordan_UVerminator: It's a standard message, before you're identified you're just some person trying to use the nick "Verminator" and so you're being warned that it's registered (in case it's not actually you).01:35
intradertjubaluba, I assume you have tried the script from the terminal. The terminal is running as you, and may not have the variables the IDE expectsl01:36
tjubalubaintrader, yes.. tried in terminal01:36
AsterixDoes anyone know I'm getting an installation error when installing from the CD that file doesn't match source copy? I've done the integrity check when booting with it but there's no errors there.01:37
VerminatorJordan_U, so how do I automatically identify w/ each log in then, so as to log in as the real Verminator.01:37
tjubalubaintrader, so "program in terminal" would run .bashrc right?01:37
intraderVerminator, I had the same problem. What I had to do was have Staff reinstate my account.01:38
Verminatortjubaluba, that is a config file for the bach shell, you cant just run it, there is a command, which I cant think of, to parse it and apply changes, let me look for command01:38
intradertjubaluba, what is the first line of the script?01:39
=== plouffe_ is now known as plouffe
frobisherVerminator,you need to register an acount.01:39
tjubalubaintrader, #!/bin/sh01:40
Verminatorfrobisher, I did register the account and verified it, but when I log in it wants me to use "identify <password>".  I'm think I just need to somehow configure empathy to make sure I log on as the real Verminator.01:41
Jordan_UVerminator: It depends on your IRC client, which are you using?01:41
frobisherThe bot don't work.It tells you how to register(!why)01:41
VerminatorJordan_U, empathy 2.30.201:42
tjubalubaVerminator, oh okey.. so .bashrc isnt run from "Program in terminal" menu items?01:42
frobisherThis morning they where working on the system ,but maybe it's not all fixed yet.01:43
Verminatortjubaluba, no, it is run automatically when u log in, there is a command to reparse it, I'm trying to find it now, I forget what it is off the top o my head01:43
Jordan_UVerminator: http://library.gnome.org/users/empathy/stable/irc-nick-password.html.en01:43
Verminatorfrobisher, ok thx, I'll checxk that out01:43

An_Ony_Moosemeh. SSH will connect to a server, scp won't work with it. Can anyone explain this? :/01:44
intradertjubaluba, Verminator Not necessarily By detault bash, but the first line actually could direct it to use another shell.01:44

castRudyValencia: have a read of http://planet.admon.org/howto/using-alternative-superblock-to-check-ext3/01:56
Jordan_URudyValencia: First run "sudo fsck -n /dev/sdXY" (where XY is replaced with the proper drive and partition) and pastebin the results. This will run fsck *without letting it attempt to repair*, don't try to actually repair with fsck yet.01:56

sync3timesuman that way you can set other site specific things for ssh along with the full hostname01:57

umansync3times: thanks01:57
casti was thinking if time isn't important, and there's not enough space to make an image of the drive, one could par2 the block device @ say 10% and be able to revert changes that way01:58
mobasherhow do you force kill a process..i can't get rid of something01:58
Microman171mobasher: There is a kill command, or a killall command01:58
zzzedMicroman171, what type of audio card?01:59
mobasheri have this process i want to kill "[ssh-agent] <defunct>01:59
RudyValenciacast: I haven't another hard disk that can hold the contents of this one01:59
sync3timesmobasher, zombies,  hard to kill01:59
Verminatormobasher, you need to first find the PID of the process01:59
mobashermoe       3629  3492  0 20:02 ?        00:00:00 [ssh-agent] <defunct>01:59
sync3timesmobasher, its a zombie process.  It failed to give its return code to its parent because its parent was dead.   Hard to kill02:00
mobasherdarn it02:00
Verminatormobasher, find PID by "ps aux |grep ssh"  this will list the processes running with "ssh" in description, one of the pieces of data will be PID02:00
mobasheri was playing around with openssh installation and i messed up so i removed it02:01
Verminatormobasher, then kill <PID>  and if that doesnt work kill -9 <PID>02:01
mobashermoe       3629  0.0  0.0      0     0 ?        Zs   20:02   0:00 [ssh-agent] <defunct>02:01
casthttp://linux.die.net/man/8/e2fsck describes how to get a list of alternative superblocks :), under -b02:01
mobasheri need to reboot i guess ?02:01
sync3timesmobasher, its probably not hurting anything02:02
RudyValenciaSomeone else suggested testdick02:02
VerminatorJordan_U, so if i understand um then I must "identify <pass>" each time I log in?02:02
RudyValenciaIt found one backup superblock02:02
mobasherk great..thanks guys apprecaite it02:02
Jordan_UVerminator: You shouldn't need to do that manually, no.02:02
jk_Verminator, if you're using xchat, it will do it for you automagically.02:03
RudyValenciaNow I can run e2fsck -n -b (that number) /dev/sdb1 to see if it will work (read-only, of course - we don't want to do anything until we're 100% sure!)02:03
VerminatorJordan_U, thx for the clarification, jk_, using empathy and I think i have it set correctly, but need to identify manually each time02:03

ilovefairuzTheMusicGuy: yes02:12
netbook_how do i check my video card and update it in ubuntu02:13
lnewlfeany ideas on setting up my sound?02:13
EvilPhoenixnetbook_:  define update first02:13
TheMusicGuyilovefairuz, there is actually an error message that said something about disk-by-id or something that comes up just before the prompt02:13
sync3timesjaysern, I would like to eliminate the chance that running two desktop is too much for the card.    You are extending the desktop onto the external right?   Is it nvidia btw?02:13
jaysernhmmmm ... okay. well, it works perfectly fine in Windows Vista02:14
ilovefairuzTheMusicGuy: what's the exact error?02:14
jaysernso the hardware can support it02:14
sync3timesjaysern, good to know.   What chipset?02:14

sync3timesjaysern, I know more about nvidia than radeon drivers.    sorry02:17
EvilPhoenixnetbook_:  as for checking the card... try looking through the output of lspci02:17
lenswipe|debiansacarlson, its not a problem with restritcted formats - the video isnt even being broadcast02:17
netbook_sorry about the messaging. i just install xbuntu02:17
ZykoticK9lenswipe|debian, in VLC try changing the Video Output to OpenGL or X11 in the options menu, see if either/or work02:17

tastyfishDoes anyone know how to make a custom color scheme for gedit? I've tried making one but all I get when I try to add it is "the selected color scheme cannot be installed"?02:18

gaboxhi, when i start my ubuntu with the 2.6.32-24 kernel, i got this message: "/dev/disk/by-uuid/4a4.... does not exist. Droping to a shell!" That uuid refers to the partition were i have ubuntu installed. I first thought it was by hard disk, but i can boot fine with 2.6.32-23 kernel. Any ideas?? thanks02:19
jk_RudyValencia, time to back them up, in case it happens again!02:19
sync3timeslenswipe|debian,  vnc is working in all other respects, but it stops working when you are looking at a movie?02:19

jaysernsync3times: no worries i appreciate the help.02:19
lenswipe|debiansync3times, vlc*02:19
RudyValenciajk_: yeah, I will. But first I must (correctly) format the USB external drive.02:20
jaysernalso to test the cable, i plugged in another computer to this monitor - and it works. so the cable is ok02:20
tastyfishMan, this gedit thing is annoying. No results on google either.02:20
lenswipe|debiansync3times, not vnc02:20
sync3timeslenswipe|debian, whoops.  srry02:20
elitexrayubottu is actually really helpful02:20
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)02:20
TheMusicGuyilovefairuz, I don't think that will work. The error occurs before any drives have even been mounted, so no errors could have been reported to /var/log/messages. But I will post it anyway:02:20
lenswipe|debiansync3times, its k :)02:21
lenswipe|debiansync3times, so any ideas about VLC02:21
lnewlfeany ideas?02:21
lenswipe|debianonly the audio is coming through02:21
sync3timeslenswipe|debian, is the firewall on the windows box down?02:21
tjubalubahmm... gnome menu "program launcher" doesnt seem to get variables set in .bashrc02:21
lenswipe|debiansync3times, yes - but it happens even if i run 2 instances of VLC on the windows box and connect one to the other with
sync3timeslenswipe|debian, well, you are getting audio, so its not connection....damn02:22
lenswipe|debiansync3times, infact if i select "Play locally" the audio plays locally but not the video02:22
lenswipe|debianwhen streaming i tell it to play it locally too02:22
sync3timeslenswipe|debian, oh, so it wont play at all02:22
lenswipe|debiansync3times, no it will play if i just watch the movie02:22
lenswipe|debianbut if i try and stream it and select play locally then it wont play the video even on the windows machine02:22
lenswipe|debiansync3times, when streaming you can have it so that it renders the stream on the local machine too02:23
lenswipe|debianand if i select that iti doesnt render the video02:23
sync3timeslenswipe|debian, got it.   I remember the feature now02:23

CkhiKuzadOk, yet again i really need help. I start my system up into GNOME, and it starts nautilus correctly, but no gnome panel starts. i really need help to get it configured to start.02:37
sweetpilenswipe|debian: mount the share then02:37
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, how?02:38
edbianCkhiKuzad, alt + F2 -> gnome-terminal -> gnome-panel&02:38
edbianCkhiKuzad, After that it should start every time automatically.02:38
CkhiKuzadok, why gnome-panel and an ampersand, is there a particular reason for that?02:39
* CkhiKuzad highlights: edbian ^02:39
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, ok its mounted and i still cant see it from VLC02:40
sweetpilenswipe|debian: been a while since ive mounted a share, something like mount -t smbfs //serverip/share /mount_point02:40
tjubalubawtf.. this must be standard procedure... running apps from gnome menues that rely on settings done in .bashrc... but .bashrc isnt run when launching apps from menues... not even with "run in terminal" option02:40
edbianCkhiKuzad, There is!  The & makes the process it's own instead of a child process of the gnome-terminal.  If you don't do the & then if you close the gnome-terminal window the panel will die.02:40
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, whats the mountpoint?02:40
TheMusicGuyilovefairuz, ok, so the error message says the system "gave up waiting for the root device". It then lists possible reasons for that, the first of which said to check the boot command line, which I did.02:40
lenswipe|debiancan i make something up?02:40
sync3timestjubaluba, try .bash_profile02:41
CkhiKuzadalright edbian. is this possible to put in my startup applications as a failsafe?02:41
sweetpilenswipe|debian: where ever you want it, say /media/win_dvd, but you need to create the directory first and do this all from sudo02:41
edbianCkhiKuzad, sure.  Make a new entry in the System -02:41
skumarai'm connected to Internet via mobile broadband, how do i know whether i connected via hsdpa or gprs?02:41
ilovefairuzTheMusicGuy: looks like a bug in interaction with udev, please file a bug report, join #ubuntu-bugs for help with that02:42
CkhiKuzadthanks edbian02:42
edbianCkhiKuzad, Create an entry in System -> preferences -> startup  the command would be "gnome-panel" no need for the & If the X server dies you don't really care if gnome-panel dies too ;)02:42
edbianCkhiKuzad, Yep! :D02:42
tjubalubasync3times, nope.. didnt work02:42
RudyValenciaI just ran an fsck on a partition and a folder of mine is missing02:42
edbianI love linux!02:42
CkhiKuzadi've had it in startup for a while, it never workd02:42
skumaraTheMusicGuy, do 'ls /dev' and see your partition is listed or not02:43

TheMusicGuyskumara, I was actually able to mount my root device (/dev/sda6) from the initramfs prompt02:44
tjubalubasync3times, yeah i could.. but it sortof feels wrong..02:44
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, ok i tried it - it doesnt play02:45
BrianEWhen I close my laptop lid for more than about 5 minutes, the laptop conks out. Not a standard shutdown, the laptop actually just powers off, like you'd expect if it had no battery and the power was cut. It's not a hardware issue as I can't replicate it under other OSs; has anyone got any ideas / suggestions?02:45
skumaraTheMusicGuy, than if u type 'exit' u should be able to log into ubuntu. right?02:45
lnewlfeYou still here ilovefairuz?02:45
sweetpilenswipe|debian: you can see the files in /media/win_dvd ?02:45
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, sure02:45
TheMusicGuyskumara, I didn't try that. I just used the grub menu to change the root device on the command line to the actual device name rather than the UUID.02:46
lenswipe|debiani just cant fkin access them >:{02:46
edbianBrianE, Is it suspending to disk?02:46
ilovefairuzlnewlfe: yes02:46
lnewlfestill nothing.02:46
sync3timestjubaluba,  well, in the old old days you could put variable in  /etc/profile   maybe there are still variables pulled from  /etc/bash_profile or something02:46
lnewlfeescept it changed my grub02:46
sweetpilenswipe|debian: you mean you dont have permissions?02:46
lenswipe|debiansweetpi, i can see the stuff in there i just cant get VLC to play the damn files02:47
BrianEedbian: No, it wouldn't have time to suspend to disk if it's just dying instantly, and the system doesn't 'wake' when it's turned on in any case =\02:47
edbianI made an amazing discovery today.  I have a wireless mouse.  I'm pretty sure the wires that all connect to the back of my system were messing with the radio signals.  Is there some way I can stop this?  What if I put foil around the other wires or something?02:47
sync3timestjubaluba, btw, if you do it wrong, you will bring your system to its knees the next time you boot02:47
edbianBrianE, You said it takes 5 minutes?02:48
skumaraTheMusicGuy, thats ok. I have same problem with my acer 4520. Every time i need to manuall mount my /dev/sda5 than when i exit i can boot my ubuntu. it is a bug that i am waiting for a patch from ubuntu.02:48
sweetpilenswipe|debian: if you did open directory > video_ts in vlc iirc it should play it. otherwise there is a main file in the video_ts that you could try to play. cant remember the name of it of the top of my head02:48
lnewlfeany additional info you can use from me to figure out this sound thing?02:48
tjubalubasync3times, yeah.. i got the impression it can dangerous to fiddle with these things =D02:48
tjubalubasync3times, i think ill have to ggl more02:48
edbianBrianE, Also, suspend to hdd appears to be off completely (no power is being consumed).  It checks for a suspend to disk image every time it turns on.  If it finds one it boots.  Many laptops are set to "hibernate" when the laptop lid is shut.02:48
litropyedbian: I see things like gdm-session-worker and gnome-session. but I also see things like kdeinit4 and klauncher, and mutter.02:49
BrianEedbian: It isn't a gradual process, the laptop is fine and normal if I open the lid before then - the 5 minutes is rough, as I've never actually timed it specifically02:49
litropyedbian: no metacity02:49
edbianlitropy, You have both running together some how for some reason.02:49
sweetpilenswipe|debian: other that that, the only thing i can think of is you dont have libdvdcss installed02:49
BrianEBut if I don't, it decides to instantly die for some reason, I'm fairly sure it's not suspending to disk. The option in "Power Management" is set to "Blank Screen", too02:49
edbianBrianE, So there is some cutoff point at which it suddenly shuts down as if the plug was suddenly pulled.02:50
litropyedbian, how do I switch to gdm yet still be able to open kde apps?02:50
BrianEedbian: Yes02:50
ilovemyherbzCan someone help me with an issue I am having with a USB drive?02:50
BrianEIE, a while ago I brought my laptop upstairs to brush my teeth with the lid closed, came back to it and it was dead again02:50
edbianlitropy, Well.  when you log in choose "gnome" in the sessions menu.  The KDE apps will still show up in your menu and they'll work.  You don't have to log into kde (or gnome) to use apps from kde (or gnome).02:51
BrianE(That's not what I'm basing it off, it's just another time it's happened - one of the ~15 times I've noticed it)02:51
edbianBrianE, That's a very strange problem.  I'm not sure! :P02:51
BrianEIsn't it just?02:51
TheMusicGuyskumara, I would like to edit my boot configuration so that the change I made to the boot line will be permanent, but it seems the old /boot/grub/menu.lst no longer exists...02:51

BrianEOf course, because it cuts dead immediately there are no log files or dumps, lol02:52
edbianBrianE, power management is actually a well known rats nest of problems.  When MS introduced the idea hardware manufacturers started implementing it in their systems.  Some cheaper ones started making buggy / crappy ones that worked any way because windows would alter their OS just to allow these hardware to work correctly.  Now for Linux, it's impossible to get it to work well for many machines because they're all different.02:53
ilovemyherbzWhen i boot ubuntu 10.04 up, it says it is waiting for my USB drive to mount, and I have to "Wait for it to continue" or press "S to skip", and it does this even without the USB drive plugged in, I have to press S to skip, or plug the drive in in order to start the laptop02:53

BrianEmrvdv: Go to System Preferences -> Login Manager, and click 'Unlock' in the dialog that comes up. Type your password, hit enter, then select "Show the screen for choosing who will login", and close the dialog02:56
litropyedbian: like I said, kde cursor, kde loadscreen, yet gnome-like look. UNR with Unity.02:56
lnewlfeilovefairuz, i havnt installed any restricted extracts, and i tried to test sound with alsamixer like you suggested, tweaking levels. I assume it would make a "ping" noise when changed...02:56
edbianlitropy, Do you have a gnome-panel or kde panel?02:56
BrianEI typed that out for no reason, heh02:56

picard1400ubuntu desktop its server edition03:01
klatjubaluba, i'm not sure which language you have in mind that has 'source' but assuming it includes the source of another file verbatim it should be it03:02

picard1400sync3times if i just plug it in... and hit connect03:02
picard1400your saying it should work.. RDNIS is working03:02

tjubalubanw: so not possible to "source" a bash script from a sh script03:06
ipatrolnextlayer: /etc/fstab03:07
jaysernthanks all03:07
rwwtjubaluba: 1) my name is rww, 2) considering that the concept of sourcing something is a bashism, it obviously wouldn't work in a sh script.03:07
sync3timestjubaluba, the big problem is that it will try, but if you have bash specific stuff in your script, plain sh will abort the script.  .  interpret inside your existing script03:07
ipatrolrww: I know, but if baffles me as to why I had to do that03:07
lnewlfeI unmuted every channel and maxed every level and nothing ilovefairuz03:07
rwwipatrol: because your view of applications is not universally held, and is apparently not the same as the Desktop team's03:07
BrianEipatrol: Empathy has audo and video support, I guess Canonical thought that would please a lot of the users that boycotted Ubuntu because they couldn't use their webcam in chat03:07
ilovefairuzquentusrex: unless you explicitly call bash in the script: bash script.sh03:07

Viking667tried that. THere's no pointers tab.03:12
BrianEipatrol: Basically, yes. Empathy also looks more aesthetically pleasing than Pidgin - If it bloody worked, it'd be a better chat application for most people than Pidgin03:12
BrianEarkaxow: Are you using desktop effects?03:13
chris_osxoh, so i have to reinstall everything? ok03:13

Viking667Sunderphon: hm. You at a commandline? (terminal, konsole)?03:54

Viking667well, what do you actually want java for?04:00
Viking667ANd do you need a full jdk (i.e. for OpenOffice) or just a jre?04:00
bazhangSunderphon, you have the partner repo enabled for java?04:00
SunderphonRunning java applications, I don't need it for developing04:00

Viking667Sunderphon: if you're needing it for OpenOffice.Org, then you'll likely want a full jdk. (Not sure why, they just suggest them)04:02

Viking667but jdk comes with a jre anyhow.04:02
bazhangdarwin, it seems to think your wlan0 is eth104:03

bazhangSunderphon, you want a more recent version than is in the repos? is that the issue?04:04
darwinbazhang, I did it previously it fails04:04
bazhangSunderphon, if so, any particular reason?04:04
SunderphonNo, I need a slightly newer version than 1.5.0 and I'm not sure how to go about that04:04
SunderphonI have some applications I run that rely on newer versions of java (I had a newer version installed, but I reinstalled ubuntu recently). Running them on 1.5.0 causes them to hang and die within a few minutes04:06

bitreaderHi, I'm ready to install Ubuntu, I was wondering if you people would reocmmend me to (since it's already one month left to the final release) install Ubuntu 10.10.04:22
dustin_sudo apt-get virtualbox-ose04:23
doctorZeusOn my 775 rig rig I have stability issues with both virtual box and vmplayer but vmplayer is a bit more stable, on my 1156 rig they're both stable but virtualbox seems to be a bit quicker and more responsive04:23
hikubitreader: I'd wait until it's out of beta04:23
dustin_bitreader if you want stable use 10.0404:23
dustin_and if you like hulu use 32 bit04:23
bitreaderYeh, but then I'll have to update the whole operating system from one version to another, which is a lot more risky? (or not?)04:23
=== erana_ is now known as erana
hikudoctorZeus: so, what's your question04:24
dustin_bitreader it is best to stay with the LTS(Long Term Support) releases if you want stable04:24
hikuhold that though...brb04:24
dustin_bitreader those are released every 2 years04:25
bitreaderWhen it's the next one due to launch? And which's the one last launched?04:25
linux_opwhats this stuff about 11.04?.04:26
doctorZeushiku i was commenting on JoeSomebody's question..should have addressed him04:26
dustin_bitreader the latest LTS is 10,.0404:26
SunderphonThat's a good question actually, what are my chances of breaking everything, if I try to update from 10.04 to 10.10?04:26
linux_opsunderphon: not to high04:26
dustin_very slim chance of major breaks04:26
linux_opsunderphon: don't do it since its only beta atm04:27
dustin_my worst breaks were from 8.04 to 8.1004:27
SunderphonI installed via wubi, does that change anything?04:27
doctorZeusSunderphon: breaking everything slim to none.. odd quirks that you'll be sorting through until the next LTS -- very good :)04:27
dustin_I killed KDE04:27
linux_opI hope the next release will have more hardware support04:27
dustin_linux_op what hardware do you need supported?04:27
adamkexif i move a .tar.gz file to a fat filesystem will the permissions inside the file be ruined?04:28
usr13linux_op: What are you finding that is not supported?04:28
linux_opdustin_: from what I see ubuntu lacks wifi support on laptops and netbooks04:28
linux_opsince most of them use the function key04:28
linux_opoww and the fans, and sensors04:28
bitreader"64-bit - Not recommended for daily desktop usage"? Really?04:28
dustin_linux_op what kind of laptop are you running adn are you using 64 bit or 32 bit04:29
linux_opbitreader: they should encourage 64bit...04:29
dustin_I do not reccomend 64 bit for anyone who likes hulu/fancast04:29
linux_opdustin_: im not using ubuntu atm and I ony experienced it on my last hp netbook with kubuntu live04:29

linux_opsunderphon: use netbook remix04:30
dustin_linux_op the 32bit ubuntu with Gnome desktop has great wifi support04:30

dustin_my acer aspire came with win7 that never booted    :D04:31
Sunderphonlinux_op: I tried out netbook remix with a friend, before I first tried out ubuntu on my desktop and it was really off putting04:31
usr13linux_op: I don't really like the netbook remix.  It's too limited04:31
dustin_first boot was with ubuntu 9.10 disk in drive04:31
bitreaderusr13, Thanks for the vote of confidence towards that decision. I was already downloading 64 bit but I feel quite more comfortable now. I thought so though... that warning is just a way for developers to be able to launch "I told you so" if things go wrong.04:31
edbianusr13, It has a terminal.  What else do you need?04:31
linux_opsunderphon: well the way I see it the netbook remix gets you to what you want faster04:31
Sunderphondustin_ if you never booted that Win7 you can call MS and have it returned04:31
linux_opsunderphon: since a netbook is smaller to operate in04:32
dustin_Sunderphon do you suppose that they will give my the $200 for the OS that came with my $2654 laptop :D04:32

edbianbitreader, No.  You have to edit the root windows partition which you can't edit if you have it mounted.04:34
Sunderphonbut seeing as you only really bought the hardware, you can get the license returned. As long as you never booted into it, and therefore used the serial key.04:34

dlarmeir@Bauldrick - What proptped Ubuntu to try to fix something that wasn't broken?05:12
creepy_ballerina /quit05:12
quentusrexdlarmeir, what was 'fixed' ?05:13
dlarmeirMoving from init to upstart.05:13
usr13dlarmeir: Are you talking about inittab?05:13
dlarmeirInit scripts in general really.05:14
quentusrexdlarmeir, init is awesome as a simple startup and shutdown system. upstart is designed to be able to be crafted more intelligently05:14
usr13dlarmeir: Well, they just thought that it was time to start doing things a different way. It works ok I think.05:14
quentusrexsuch as on specific events(system events like file creation, deletion, etc) on a schedule(such as in 30 seconds), etc.05:14
dlarmeirI love Ubuntu, don't get me wrong but I think deviating from the standard makes me a bit nervous.05:15
quentusrexdlarmeir, there is cause to be nervous. Moving from a tried and true system like inittab can be dangerous.05:16
usr13dlarmeir: I think what is great about Linux is it's innovative nature.05:16
quentusrexBut so far I have seen good things with upstart.05:16
ezzieyguywufI am running a really old (8.04) ubuntu live cd. I want a newer version of gparted on it. one that hase ext4 on it. how can I accomplish this?05:16
dlarmeiruentusrex - agreed05:17
quentusrexI hear a lot of linux old timers grumble about the removal of inittab, but after they actually dig into what upstart is trying to do, I hear cautious support.05:17
o0zeezzieyguywuf: getdeb.net or ubuntu backports05:17
quentusrexCautious support along the lines of: " I won't run it on my system yet, but I will definitely watch to see others switch"05:18
ezzieyguywufo0ze: and what is a backport?05:18
o0zeezzieyguywuf: google05:18
dlarmeirusr13 - Linux is awesome and innovative, but switching to something that deviateds from the standard on a LTS stable distro makes me feel nervous.05:18
o0zeezzieyguywuf: also mentioned on getdeb.net05:18
ezzieyguywufok thanks05:18
usr13dlarmeir: I hear ya...05:18
quentusrexdlarmeir, personally I don't think they should have switched Lucid to upstart. But now that they have, I have seen nothing wrong with the switch.05:19
quentusrexexcept for the fact that it is different, and if you are not aware of the switch it can be 'dangerous'.05:19
usr13But it's been quite some time now... and I don't see a lot of problems, or ... haven't heard...05:19
dlarmeirquentusrex - that is the exact thing that happened to me. I was troubleshooting a downed mysql server on 10.04 and could not figure out why the init script would not work. That was my first experience with it haha.05:20
quentusrexI deal with a bunch of different production networks, and I have yet to see any issues with the ones that are now using upstart.05:20
ja660khey all, what format should i save application icons as? i made it in photoshop as a .png with transperancy turned on, but it still draws a background when i make it an icon :(05:20
usr13What has it been now... couple years?05:21
quentusrexdlarmeir, I found out about the switch during beta testing. Since I was looking to upgrade some production machines to Lucid from Hardy.05:21
quentusrexdlarmeir, the best thing is to read up on it: http://upstart.ubuntu.com/05:21
dlarmeirBookmarked - thanks quentusrex!05:22

MadRobotHow do I fix this error: http://python.pastebin.com/rYq0vHHQ (NOTE: Tried using Pocoo pastebin but it's down)06:27
ZykoticK9f23, i ask because i've seen that break things before with torrent programs.  use gksu for any GUI apps, it's really important, as you might be about to find out.  i don't have a solution i'm affraid, especially if you have torrents you want to continue!  best of luck man.06:28
matrixbluef23; I would try reinstalling deluge06:28
squigythats a neat app06:28

WinstonSmithto all questions?07:01

squiggyyes, all tcp and udp allowed for all services07:02
WinstonSmithsquiggy, but you changed that no? with the interfaces= line?07:02
squiggyyes, i dont understand why ebox changes the config back if I restart file sharing services in ebox though07:03
WinstonSmithsquiggy, ok then look in ebox for a line like : bind to interfaces or bind to address and disable that. teh restart file sharing07:04

CkhiKuzadi think that's the directory, not absolutely sure07:57
Dr_Willisjohn38:  right click on the launcher, properties, click the box at the top left where the icon is normally shown.. browse for an icon and select one07:58
Dr_Willisthe big 'icon' box is a button you click to change the icon07:58
* CkhiKuzad would have said that, but Dr_Willis was faster07:58

Dr_Willisjohn38:  change what icon?  You want to make a new launcher with a different icon?08:04
CkhiKuzadsometux: it seems that youtube might have  changed their video junk (sorry, can not think of a better word) so people who were downloading videos would be stopped, and it negatively affected totem08:04

SubCoolDr_Willis, I dont have access to hardware-drivers08:05
Dr_WillisJefferson:  you can tweak some settings of GDM2 like the wallpaper and so forth, There are alternative GDM themes also (but not a lot)08:05
Jeffersonhow, I use to use 8.10 and i just had to go into system08:05
CkhiKuzadJefferson, System>Administration>Login Window08:05
CkhiKuzadThen drag the tar archive of the GDM theme you downloaded into the "Local" tab08:06
Dr_WillisSubCool:  You are the admin of that box. you can run 'gksudo jockey-gtk' ? why dont you have 'access' ? clarify what you mean08:06
Jeffersonwhen I open it up then login window then it doesnt bring up the old window that 8.10 use to have08:06
Dr_WillisCkhiKuzad:  theres not a lot of themes for GDM2.. and the gdm1 themes wont work.08:06
CkhiKuzadDr_Willis, oh.08:06
Himanshuheadkase314: thanks, that link worked...08:06
Dr_WillisJefferson:  thats because of the change to 'gdm2'  its not as themeable as the old GDM. (at this time)08:07

Dr_WillisSubCool:  so you have no X display at all eh?08:09
Jeffersonalso I tried installing 8.10 software on lucid and i kept getting an internal error which i never got before switching, I want to install ubuntu tweak to customize it a little like setting icons of my computer and home directory on my desktop, but it doesnt bring up ubuntu tweak when I search for it in my add or remove programs, so I was just wondering if i installed my copy for 8.10 if it'll work08:09

SubCooli can just remove xorg.conf- if that is the file i need to.08:11
SubCool..... ati-08:11
Dr_WillisSubCool:  if you chanbged video cards.. try renameing xorg.conf and restart x (if it exists)08:11

Dr_Willisloopidity:  'deluser'08:13
Jeffersonjust curious when I installed software from 8.10 on the version of ubuntu 10.4, then it gave me an internal error code which pretty made so i could install anymore software, i looked it up and it said something like interdependency error, does certain packages only work on certain versions08:14

airtonixDr_Willis, its much more customisable this way. you can even in theory use python scripts08:18

Dr_WillisHimanshu:  but i dont think that lets you do much from the linux side.08:49
intraderchalcedony, I think it is something related to the latest kernel - I had 9.04: snappy UI (without Skype), installed 9.10: had UI problems, reinstalled 9.04: had UI porblems once the ubuntu update finished,installed 10.04: bad UI (have Skype now)08:50

yellabsbut i need to have an more visual one,09:53
yellabsfirebug does help a lot, but still not perfect in total09:53
WinstonSmithitsux2bu, since the MAC connects to the server the question with internal and external ips doenst matter here09:53
yellabsi will look into iceape09:53
luwyou mean a css deal or just html?09:53
Dr_Willisitsux2bu:  baack up a moment.. the MAc is on the Internal LAN also?09:54
itsux2buwhen  i ssh with internal ip, no RSA Key needed,  but when i putty or my brother ssh using external ip we get that RSA key error message09:55

luwso have been using chrome for about a month now with pretty much no problems.  all the sudden now it takes longer than normal to resolve websites.  several seconds.  i fear that maybe something has pointed my computer to a proxy for all internet traffic.  is there a way to see this other than wireshark?09:57
itsux2buputty works if i use internal router assigned ip address09:57
WinstonSmithitsux2bu, yes but remove and purge it the reinstall . the msg about rsa is not an error msg. it appears only the 1st time you connect09:57
WinstonSmith*then reinstall09:57
luwubuntu 9.04, and i think this is a os problem, not a chrome problem09:57

wikorAnyways, I just upgraded to Google Chrome 6 and I am having problems10:01
wikorThe buttons are appearing on left side10:01

wikorEverything seems missing10:02
wikorI mean the buttons10:02
luwcontrol and customize?10:02
slidinghornwhich buttons are you talking about?  Minimize/Maximize/Close?10:02
yellabscross my fingers .. amaya install10:02
WinstonSmithitsux2bu, you said earlies the errormsg your brother got was broken pipe?????10:02
wikorslidinghorn: yes10:02
wikorluw : How?10:02
itsux2bui got my windows host os, ubuntu server with openssh, and my brothers macbook pro  all connected to my router.. i can do whatever you want..10:03
itsux2buhold on..10:03
luwnot the buttons in the top right, but almost top right?  one is a page and one is a wrench right?10:03
slidinghornwikor, there should be a setting in the preferences (click the button with the wrench in the icon) and look around for an option to use the OSs theme -- not sure exactly where it is10:03
itsux2buThe authenticity of host can't be established. RSA key fingerprinter is <big long hex number i don't want to type here>. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)?  he typed yes.. then he got  'broken pipe' and it didn't connect..10:04
wikorslidinghorn: well, its not there10:04
wikorluw: The page button is also missing10:04
luwwrench > options > personal > appearance10:05
luwwikor: right click around the top bar or other areas up there10:05
slidinghornwikor, is chrome the only application you have this issue with?10:05
itsux2buwhen i use putty with my external ip address i get similar error message10:05
WinstonSmithitsux2bu, thats what i said : its not an error msg its an info msg but sibce he cant successfully connect his client does not save the rsa key so next time it asks again10:05

ShapeShifter499does a theme have to be netbook friendly to be able to work in netbook remix?  there is this gnome theme I got up in my 64 bit debian squeeze system and I like it and think it would be great on my acer netbook with ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix10:06

wikorluw: Are you using the Google Chrome 6?10:08
ShapeShifter499slidinghorn, which leads me to ask ubuntu netbook remix allows for wallpaper right? I haven't checked or used ubuntu netbook that much before to find out10:08

wikorluw: But its quite anooying :(10:09
Dr_WillisShapeShifter499:  the netbook interface is undergoing big changes for 10.10  also. so what you get used to now., may not apply in the next release.10:09
itsux2bui'm used to computers that do the same thing each time you use it..10:09

ShapeShifter499slidinghorn, ok thanks10:09

Dr_WillisShapeShifter499:  in the netbook interface.. radical changes.  google for 'unity' screenshot/videos10:10
luwi honestly dont have chrome 6 to test and tell you though...and now dont want to upgrade because i dont want your problems lol10:11
slidinghornShapeShifter499, understand that there's no real requirement to upgrade to 10.10 -- it's not an LTS release...10.04 will be supported for a long time10:11
WinstonSmithitsux2bu, good for you ! well i am going to eat something.. have a nice day10:11

ShapeShifter499digim0nk, I thought that too but I checked and my usb install(installed to computer mem from usb) partitioned in 3 gigs of swap10:14
itsux2buDr_Willis. no.. never i try things multiple times..  but i'm also used to getting same results each time.. i guess i got jaded by every program giving an error message.. and the fact i had it working between windows host os and ubuntu guest os from first try.. also threw my off..10:15
digim0nkShapeShifter499: strange .. 3gigs shoud be more than enough .. updated your kernel .. try booting off the earlier one10:16
ShapeShifter499digim0nk, but when I have system monitor up it shows that right before crashing I'm only using about 300mb of a gig of ram10:17
ShapeShifter499it did this on the newest version and the one the system came installed with10:17

itsux2buso just the ubuntu side has to support screen.. its not something the client side needs to support?10:37
ShredMasterWillis: I made new user. I can't access the hard-drive because it askes Password of the MAIN USER.10:38
Dr_WillisAdonis:  You want to use virtualbox to access the 'real hard drive'  - thats doable. but not reccomended.10:38
Dr_WillisShredMaster:  what hard drive?10:38
ShredMasterWillis: I mean c: , d: drives10:38
sudipta_will gnome 3.0 support compiz?10:38
Dr_WillisShredMaster:  if you mean a extenal usb ntfs or similer drive. You can try running the ntfs-config command (as root) and  check the boxs to allow all users access10:38
Adonisits in c:\ when in windows! i just want to locate the ubuntu.iso so i can run the bootable usb prog thru ubuntu10:38
soreausudipta_: not likely10:39
ShredMasterok i will try10:39
Dr_WillisAdonis:  so you are running virtualbox on windows.. running UBUNTU, and you want the Guest Ubuntu In VBOX to access teh ISO file on C: to generate a bootable USB flash drive with persistant save.10:39
Adonisexactly :D10:40
sudipta_<soreau>then how it will support various effects?10:40
Adonisis that possible?10:40
Dr_WillisAdonis:  the pendrivelinux  websit has tools and scripts and instructions on making a bootable usb flash drive  - within windows. No virtualbox needed10:40
Dr_WillisAdonis:  its possible.. but a bit comples. when pendrivelinux web site has tools to do it directly10:40
Adonisexcellent thanks :D10:41
soreausudipta_: gnome 3 uses mutter which is metacity+clutter, their version of their effects. Compiz is completely separate (and can run without and DE as a matter of fact)10:41
Dr_WillisAdonis:  theres dozens of tools out under windows to generate bootable flash drives10:41
Dr_WillisAdonis:  'unetbootin' 'lili' and proberly a dozen more ive never heard of. :)10:42
Adonisi downloaded one about a week ago! created bootable usb with this exact iso and it ran mega slow for somereason??? but through vmware its running fine10:42
Dr_WillisAdonis:  if you have a large enough flash drive you could do a 'normal' install to the flash drive.    a Live-setup is slower then a normal install10:43
Adonisso im gonna try remake a new bootable usb stick.. hopefully this time it wont run like a dog10:43

chalcedonyi have two drives in whitestar, one is 8.04, the other new one is 10.04 (i think), when i checked on it, it said kernel panic, and now booted into the 8.04 drive, what do i need to do to see if the other drive is ok?10:54
magnetronKatsuki: we do not discuss maverick here, go to #ubuntu+110:54
Get_A_Fixkk9822: you could however use a command like; sudo sed -e 's/\us.archive/old-releases/g' -i /etc/apt/sources.list10:54
ubottuA 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?10:55
chilli0magnetron, That comes up with a lot of options , I don't want to be screwing with this , I want some one to tell me how to do it. I can't ruin my system. I have tried this before and I lost everything.10:55

zagabarI think I have done something bad to my server. I tried to update libc6 to version 2.11 by using a deb package but then it started to complain on dependencies and now I get this message when installing stuff: http://pastebin.com/3yn1qDAt  If I try the -f thingy, it tries to remove like 10000 packages, telling me that I should abort it if I really don't know what I am doing. It would free 1.5 GB of space.11:41

Dr_Willis Friar  my /etc/hosts just has the sort name of my pc. not the full name like you got.12:26
FriarDr_Willis, I'm not sure we're on the same page. I just want to type ssh root@server in command line instead of ssh root@neezer96.poweredbyclear.com12:27

Tweakymso: yeah. ok well firstly you will want to boot up into safe gfx mode, go into synaptic, type in ati, re-install your installed packages, and completely remove fglrx. then restart and you should be ok. dont use the ati stuff from them, use the repository drivers12:57

Kartagisbazhang are you there?13:01
Kartagisdo you know what codec my mp4 file uses?13:06
Kartagisdo you know how what codec I can show my mp4 file uses?13:07
ubottuFor multimedia issues, this page has useful information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats - See also https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/musicvideophotos/C/video.html - But please use free formats if you can: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeFormats13:07
Kartagisdo you know how I can show what codec my mp4 file uses? there you go13:07
ljsoftnethow do i see the previous packages i just installed, through Terminal?13:07
NewaKartagis: play it with vlc and then choose tools / codec information13:08
Kartagisljsoftnet cat /var/log/apt.log13:08
ljsoftnetKartagis: it  says no file or directory13:09
Kartagisljsoftnet sudo cat /var/log/apt/term.log13:09
ActionParsnipKartagis: also add the medibuntu ppa and install gnome-mplayer and you will be able to play most things13:09
Dr_WillisKartagis:  ffprobe can also show it.  or right click on file, and select properties.. gnome file manager has some tabs with info13:10
Dr_WillisKartagis:  depending on what sort of info you want and need. :) any of the above can work13:10
ActionParsnipKartagis: weird how users can't read the log file huh :(13:10
KartagisActionParsnip what I'm looking is to encode to mp4 that nokia 5800 can read. handbrake can do what I want (mass convert and mass subtitle embed) but only converts to m2v13:11
ljsoftnetKartagis: i see it thanks13:12
KartagisDr_Willis there are two types of mp4 files13:12
ActionParsnipKartagis: you can use a bash scipt to blast through the files and run mencoder / ffmpeg on them all13:12
ActionParsnipKartagis: something like this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-desktop-74/bash-script-to-convert-all-mp3-files-to-aac-768678/13:13
Dr_WillisKartagis:  theres proberly more then 2 codecs they can use..13:13
KartagisActionParsnip on ubuntu forums I see a one liner but bazhang told me those options were removed because of legal issues13:13
Dr_WillisKartagis:  theres the various tool sin the mediabuntu and other repositories/ppa's that may have whatever features you are needing13:14
Dr_WillisKartagis:  what are yoy trying to do exactly anyway?13:14
ljsoftnetKartagis: thanks man13:14
ActionParsnipKartagis: wow, not heard that before. freaky13:15
fajfhi guys, im having a problem with VMWARE, it wont recognize my network card13:15
Kartagisljsoftnet np13:15
ActionParsnipfajf: i'd ask in #vmware too13:15
Dr_Willisfajf:  vmwarew emulates its own  virtual nic i thought.13:15
fajfi' ve been told on other chat to ask here ;o13:16
Dr_Willisfajf:  it would appear as a networked machine (at least thats how virtualbox works)13:16
KartagisDr_Willis what I'm trying to do is, mass convert and mass subtitle embed to mp4 files that nokia 5800 can read13:16
Dr_Willis!vmware | fajf13:16
ubottufajf: VMWare is not available in the Ubuntu repositories. Consider using !QEmu or !VirtualBox as alternatives. Instructions for installing VMWare manually are at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VMware13:16
Dr_WillisKartagis:  thats a phone? or somthing else?13:16
KartagisDr_Willis format factory can do what I what I want with the exception of mass subtitle embedding13:17
KartagisDr_Willis phone13:17
Dr_WillisKartagis:  my phones just do 3gp :(   heh..13:17
Dr_WillisKartagis:  i recall the ffmpeg faq having some info on subtitles. ive never used the feature.13:17
KartagisActionParsnip http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1125181 is one-liner I found13:17
Dr_WillisKartagis:  once ya learn how to make ffmpeg do it for one..  - the bulk conversion is easy13:17
KartagisDr_Willis http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1125181 is the one-liner I found but bazhang told me some options were removed from ffmpeg because of legal issues and suggested that I use handbrake instead, but that converts to m2v only13:19
Dr_WillisI made a dirty Nautilus Script. so i can convert vbideos to cell phone format with a right click. (for my phone) heres the pastebin of it -->13:19
Dr_Willis pastebinit  Video_To_Cellphone13:19
Dr_WillisKartagis:  you can get ffmpeg from other sources.. or recompile the latest with all features13:19
ActionParsnipKartagis: looks good, use a script with that and you can do whole bunches of files while you sleep13:20
KartagisDr_Willis what source do you recommend?13:21
tracy69how to get motherboard info under ubuntu ??? in bios it doesnt show13:21
Tweakyanyone had success using blackberry with ubuntu? i've read all forums etc but still nothing close to the BDM (blackberry desktop manager) for windows. cant get it to run through wine. anyone had success?13:21
tracy69Tweaky,  i had13:21
Dr_WillisKartagis:  i saw some scripts on various ubuntu news/blog sites that automated the whole 'compile latest ffmpeg'  process.. but medibuntu may have  the allready13:21
tracy69but under windows13:22
Dr_WillisKartagis:  the issue may be the aac audio codec. You may be able to just use mp3  and have it work.13:22
Tweakytracy69: install a program from repository called sysinfo13:22
KartagisDr_Willis it complained about libxvid too13:22
Dr_WillisKartagis:  xvid is video codec. that example command i saw was using the h264  not xvid.13:23
zagabarI think I have done something bad to my server. I tried to update libc6 to version 2.11 by using a deb package but then it started to complain on dependencies and now I get this message when installing stuff: http://pastebin.com/3yn1qDAt  If I try the -f thingy, it tries to remove like 10000 packages, telling me that I should abort it if I really don't know what I am doing. It would free 1.5 GB of space.13:23
jophishHowdy all. A disk in a raid5 array just failed. http://pastebin.com/arDmuPjE I have come to the conclusion that I have no idea what to do13:24

jribzagabar: install the old version of libc...13:24
Dr_Willisseems faac is the problem child. :)13:24
ActionParsnipzagabar: then you need to satisfy the deps13:24
jribzagabar: the one from the repositories13:24
jribjophish: sorry I can't help you, but I love the way you phrased that13:25

Kartagiscan ffmpeg convert from mkv?13:26
rekinvoke-rc.d: initscript dhcp3-server, action "start" failed           why ?13:26
duffydackthe last time I tried ffmpeg from the repo with medibuntu extras it suppoted libfaac.  I use compiled version tho.13:26
max__hi i want to restrict folder access in ubuntu. how i can do that?13:26
Dr_WillisKartagis:  should be able to convert from/to most anything witht he right commands13:26
ActionParsnipmax__: look into chown to change ownership and chmod to restrict access to the groups and the owner to be appropriate for your needs13:27
shauny /server /server irc.crypticlarity.net +669713:27
Tweakyright click on folder, properties, permissions13:27
Dr_Willisyou can spend sevarl days learning about ffmpeg and all the things to watch out for. :)13:28
=== tracy68 is now known as tracy69
Dr_Willis http://rob.opendot.cl/index.php/useful-stuff/ffmpeg-x264-encoding-guide/      has some neat info13:28
kakior sudo chmod 0777 the folder path13:28
tracy69people i tried to run lshw and my screen freeze anyone know why? lshw started scan and i stopped at framebuffer than screen freeze13:29
ActionParsnipkaki: 777 on folders isreally silly13:29
kakiyeah really13:29
KartagisDr_Willis if medibuntu repo and another repo have what I want, how can I make sure that I get it from the right repo?13:29
jribActionParsnip: it's binary permissions, everyone has permissions or no one does, duh13:29
st__linux permissions are useless13:30
ActionParsnipjrib: true, or you can make a group and have those folks have access and the owner too but no other13:30
ActionParsnipst__: how so?13:30
duffydackKartagis, if you can copy paste commands then its as easy as http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=78609513:30
max__i tired using chown -R but i shows lock icon on folder but does not ask for password to access13:31
st__any sudoer can delete/reassign any file on the system13:31
ActionParsnipmax__: then you will need to add sudo to the command as it is not your users13:31
vinokchown  yourusername:yourusergroup13:31
ActionParsnipst__: tru but if you dont have everyone as admin you can have control13:31
rekPrepare your dhcp-server13:32
rekOn what network interfaces should the DHCP server (dhcpd) serve DHCP requests?  i must write my network card  right? wlan0 ?13:32
ActionParsnipst__: same can be said in windows, difference is that all users are admin by default in windows wheras they are users in linux13:32
vinoksudo chown13:32
max__this is what i wrote "sudo chown -R root:blaze ~/Desktop/Practice". Is this command correct13:32
st__no, in windows you can assign privileges to any group and allow the groups filesystem access, like Powerusers13:33
ActionParsnipmax__: looks fine, root will be the outright owner but the users in the blaze group will also have the access granted to the group13:33
ActionParsnipst__: yes, you can do that in linux using chown and chmod, its synonymous13:33
ActionParsnipst__: and any admin can remove any permissions set, just like sudoers can get access to stuff in linux13:34
max__thanks i got what's the problem13:34
st__you have to give users sudo access for working with trivial stuff like /usr/share/fonts and /usr/share/wallpapers13:35
ActionParsnipmax__: you will need to chmod too to give the owners and group members the access you want, you may only want the blaze group to have read access but root to have full access etc13:36
touch-eHi everybody ...13:36
confoociousHello. I'm on a Sony Vaio; My webcam doesn't work (R5U870); I've installed (tried both apt-get as well as compile) the R5U87X driver, but the camera doesn't seem to get detected in gstreamer-properties. Also there is no /dev/video* .. How do i get my cam to work?13:36
touch-ei need to get help about tomcat server, but i cannot join irc://irc.freenode.net/ubuntu-server channel.13:36
ActionParsnipst__: not if you give them sufficient access with groups, normal users should have access to those, you should log a bug if your normal users do not and you havent modified your accesses13:36
touch-esomeone can help :s13:37

vinokguys, is there a way for me to remove the notifications in xChat. its annoying when someone joins and leaves the channel13:43
