harrisonkits not that I can't switch its that I can't unlock the window00:01
seidosso you don't have the password?00:02
seidosharrisonk, i'm looking at the syslog file, what are we looking for?00:03
harrisonka crash some where00:06
harrisonkits a friends computer I am trying to fix00:07
seidosharrisonk, have you searched the file for the word "error" yet?00:08
harrisonkI think it has somthing to do with X00:08
harrisonkI might have, Did you?00:08
seidosyeah, i'm doing it now.  i don't know what device "sr0" is00:09
seidosi would think that anything that might have caused the crash would be logged as "error"00:09
harrisonkI just did and there are lots but They might not be realated to the system crashing00:10
harrisonkseidos what browser are you using?00:11
seidosharrisonk, this link http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=678096 says sr0 is probably just a dirty optical drive, so, nevermind that.00:11
seidosharrisonk, firefox, why?00:11
seidosharrisonk, when did the system crash?00:13
harrisonkit crashes often at unexpected times00:17
harrisonkabout the browser in chrome the word search funtion shows where the found words are on the scroll bar00:18
seidosi don't know, i'm not that good at reading the syslog.  but it doesn't look like it logged anything that is necessarily causing the problem.00:18
seidosharrisonk, i don't use chrome because i can't select my own colors for web pages00:18
seidosharrisonk, maybe try to use the system without attaching removable devices, and using the optical drive?  see if you can recreate the problem?00:19
seidosor just don't use the optical drive, keep the other drives attached00:20
seidossee if it happens that way00:20
harrisonseidos sorry my laptop battery died00:23
=== harrison is now known as harrisonk
harrisonkabout 2/3 of the way throught the log there are errors galore00:24
seidosharrisonk, my laptop battery is truly dead.  it can no longer hold a decent charge.00:24
seidosharrisonk, sr0 i/o errors?00:25
harrisonkmy friend did say that she had problems with the cd drive not reading cds00:27
seidoswell, that could be a hardware problem00:29
seidosif you have an extra optical drive, you can swap it out see if the errors persist00:30
seidosmaybe the optical drive errors are related to the system crash?00:30
harrisonkat around sep 7 12:17:42 there might be the sulution to the problem00:30
harrisonkno the optical drive bearly gets used00:31
seidosi don't know what bonobo-activation-server is.00:34
harrisonkaround there I just picked that time to get to that area00:36
seidosharrisonk, you might be right.  it does appear that bonobo-activation-server is a necessary component for gnome00:36
harrisonkalso my friend said that banging the mouse around helped with the crashes and right before the gpu hangs the mouse is doing something00:37
seidosharrisonk, did your friend upgrade her kernel?  maybe try booting with a different kernel from grub?  i noticed i915 errors also00:37
harrisonkit happened right from the start with 10.04. 9.10 worked perfectly except the usb modem she recived doesn't connect in 9.1000:39
seidosharrisonk, can you do an alt-f1 to got a terminal when the desktop sessions crashes?00:39
harrisonkit goes to a screen with the ubuntu above the 5 dots and flashes betwean that and a screen with black bars00:40
seidosi've had bad luck with 10.04 as well.  i thought it was my hardware though.00:41
seidosharrisonk, is it a desktop? or a laptop?00:41
seidosif you can't get to the login screen, then the error is occurring before xorg.00:42
harrisonkits a desktop00:44
harrisonkshe can login and do things like that its just the desktop crashes from time to time00:44
harrisonkseidos you might be right about the sr0 being some of the problem00:47
seidosharrisonk, i don't know.  i didn't catch those i915 errors.  it would be interesting to see if the system could run in a terminal without crashing.00:48
seidosit sounds like a video driver error.  i don't know about the i915, i'm pretty sure the drivers are included in the kernel.00:49
seidosi have an intel gm960/96500:49
harrisonkin one of the logs she sent me I found that device sr0 had a problem right before the system rebooted but in the log you see it looks diferent00:51
harrisonkthe other log is: http://pastebin.ubuntu.com/489758/00:51
harrisonkwhat was that ubuntuforums thread about sr0?00:53
seidosharrisonk, it just said that sr0 is usually an optical drive00:58
seidosharrisonk, i have to wash dishes, brb00:58
seidosharrisonk, i'm back01:06
harrisonkthat was quick01:06
harrisonkfor washing dishes01:06
seidosthere weren't that many01:06
harrisonkI found the ubuntuforums page01:07
seidosharrisonk, i don't see how sr0 would cause a desktop crash.  let me clarify, it crashes the whole system?  so is it a freeze or a reset?01:08
harrisonka freeze01:08
harrisonkthe reboot is by the button on the front of the computer01:09
seidosharrisonk, have you considered installing the karmic kernel, to see what that does?01:09
seidosharrisonk, a reset can occur as a result of an error01:09
harrisonkKarmic is already installed01:09
seidosharrisonk, earlier you said 10.04 was installed.  you are using kernel 2.6.32, that's the lucid kernel01:10
seidosharrisonk, 9.10 is karmic koala, 10.04 is lucid lynx?01:11
harrisonksorry I had a mixup there01:11
harrisonkit's 8 PM here and I am not quite awake01:11
seidoswell, actually, using the karmic kernel in 10.04 is probably a bad idea01:11
seidossome software might not work.  it would probably be better just to install 9.10 again.01:12
harrisonkwhat about installing the lucid kernel in karmic?01:12
seidosharrisonk, you would still have problems with certain software packages, i mean, it's your system, you can try whatever you want, really.01:13
seidosharrisonk, i had installed kernel 2.6.30 in jaunty, and couldn't get virtual box to work, but otherwise the system was fine.01:13
harrisonk9.10 won't work unless an at&t usb modem works with it.01:14
seidosthe at&t usb modem works with 10.04?01:14
harrisonknot 9.1001:14
seidosmy thinking is that the problem you are having is caused by a driver issue with the i915 graphics chip in the system01:14
seidosyou could try kernel 2.6.32 in karmic, just to confirm if the problem is with the kernel01:15
seidosif it is, you should create a bug in launchpad.  i could help with you with creating the bug if you'd like.01:15
harrisonkthe expantion is limited to 3 pci slots, so to use a video card it would be a pci one01:15
harrisonkyes please, its just the computer is an hour away01:16
harrisonkwould that be a problem?01:17
* harrisonk is away for a moment01:18
seidosharrisonk, the computer being an hour away, i don't know if it's a problem.  is it a problem for you?01:19
johnny_I'm trying to install vmware server on ubuntu server and I'm Stuck01:21

seidosharrisonk, all right.  http://launchpad.net/ubuntu.  you can search to see if there is already a bug for your problem.01:24
johnny_Can anyone help with getting vmware for ubuntu installed?01:25
seidosjohnny_, vmware isn't free software is it?01:25
seidosjohnny_, does vmware offer support?01:26
johnny_They provide you with a key for both windows and linux01:26
johnny_yes they charge for it.01:26
johnny_I want to play aroud with it and see how it works01:27
seidosjohnny_, you could try #vmware.  they might be more help.01:27
johnny_o'okay thatnsk01:27
seidosharrisonk, sorry, here's a more specific link01:29
seidosharrisonk, are you suspending the system before it crashes?01:32
harrisonkno you can be working away and poof it crashes01:33
harrisonkseidos still there?01:40
seidosharrisonk, yeah, i'm search launchpad to see if someone else created a bug similar to yours, but i can't find anything.01:41
harrisonkokay did you search for i91501:43
seidosharrisonk, yeah, i searched for "i915 crash" and "10.04 crash" but nothing really seems like a hit01:44
seidosharrisonk, what kind of video chipset do you have on your personal system?01:44

seidosharrisonk, in this bug, a reinstall of lucid is said to fix the problem.01:48
seidosbobo123, er, i've heard of this problem before.  i think there is a directory that you have to empty or something01:49
bobo123some .hidden directoy in my homedirectory or?01:51

seidosharrisonk, was going to ask, was your install an upgrade to 10.04 from karmic?  or a clean install?01:55
seidosbobo123, from http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-194469.html:  Looks like you don't have libdvdread3 installed. You can search for it in Synaptic. Install it.01:59
seidosThen run "sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/examples/install-css.sh".01:59
harrisonkseidos I submited a bug.02:04
harrisonkI will wait and see what happens and maybe come back here and ask again.02:05

bobo123seidos: I have libdvdread4 installed though... but no 302:09
seidosbobo123, what error do you get?  i am just going to google it, since i don't watch dvd discs on my laptop.02:12
stlsaintbobo123: what aer you trying to do?02:13
stlsaintbobo123: do you have libdvdcss installed02:14
stlsaintbobo123: your going to need that ^^ to play encrypted movies02:15
bobo123yes I have libdvdread4, libdvdnav4 and libdvdcss2 installed02:15
stlsaintbrb shower time02:16
seidosbobo123, can you take a screen shot of the error and post it on http://imagebin.org?02:16
seidosi just need something specific to search for on google.02:16
bobo123when I play other dvds (and they work fines), when I insert them in to the drive the filemanager opens a window for that disk btw, but not when I insert this disk. I have played it on another computer with windows so it shouldn't be a bad disk. (I havent tried with windows on this computer though)02:17
bobo123ok I make some screenshots02:18
seidosi just want the specific error in totem, if there is one02:18
seidosand what movie02:18
pedro3005bobo123, do you have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed?02:20
bobo123wait while I look.02:23
bobo123http://imagebin.org/113307   small errormessage in swedish that isn't verry important.02:25
bobo123http://imagebin.org/113308  the message window ← this is the interesting one I guess02:25
bobo123http://imagebin.org/113309  the message window but with information level set to 2 instead02:25
bobo123If I check 'no dvd-menus' checkbox I get these instead: http://imagebin.org/113311  and  http://imagebin.org/11331302:27
stlsaintyea, gotta get those ubuntu-restricted-extras02:29
seidosbobo123, a quick way, just type "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras" in terminal02:31
bobo123pedro3005: no I don't have the metapackage ubuntu-restricted-extras installed since I don't want to have java installed. The packages that is non-java that it depends on seems to be gstreamer0.10-pitfdll, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse, gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse, libmp4v2-0. It allso mentions upgrading of 'tzdata'. Perhaps I should install those?02:32
pedro3005bobo123, couldn't hurt02:33
bobo123seidos, pedro3005, now I have installed them but no difference.02:42
seidosbobo123, why not install ubuntu-restricted-extras, see if that fixes the problem, if it does, you can remove the java stuff you don't want?02:42
bobo123seidos: I have installed all ubuntu-restricted-extras that is not java now so it shouldn't mather now...02:45
aveilleuxseidos, bobo123: What seems to be the problem?02:46
bobo123when I try open it in gnome mplayer instead of vlc I get this message "Couldn't open DVD device:  to socket. mplayer: No such file or directory. Failed to open LIRC support.

aveilleuxbobo123: did you run the install-css script?02:48
bobo123seidos: it is some stupid for-kids-video that my sister want to look at that she borrowed from a friend "Pauline på bondgården/op de Borderij" seems to be two-language Swedish/Dutch. It allso says EDITION ATLAS (c)2007 nomet management services (c)2007 ASTER02:53
bobo123allso is printed on it PAL and ALL ZONES02:53
bobo123aveilleux: yes02:54
seidosbobo123, did you install w32codecs?  it is supposed to be included in ubuntu-restricted-extras02:55
aveilleuxbobo123: It sounds like the DVD you're trying to play isn't encoded for the US (NTSC is most of North America)02:55
seidosbobo123, i'm assuming you are using a standard 32bit install of ubuntu02:56
bobo123aveilleux: it was libdvdread4/install-css though, not 3... I guess it is just newer? here is the output from when I was running that; http://paste.ubuntu.com/490669/03:00
bobo123seidos: yes it is standard 32bit ubuntu 10.0403:01
aveilleuxbobo123: Wait, you're Swedish? That would have been nice to know haha. Disregard my conclusion.03:01
bobo123seidos: I can't find any package w32codecs in synaptic... perhaps I am missing some repository?03:03
seidosbobo123, try "sudo apt-get install w32codecs" in a terminal03:04
aveilleuxbobo123: You have to install the Medibuntu repository. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu03:05
bobo123seidos: when I do it answers http://paste.ubuntu.com/490672/   that translated to english whould be "Package w32codecs is not available, but another package refers to it. This could mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is available from other sources E: Package w32codecs has no installation candidate"03:07
bobo123aveilleux: yeah I will try Medibuntu repository now03:08
seidosbobo123, if that doesn't work, you can try out this guide for anything we all might have missed:  http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Lucid#DVD_Playback_Capability03:18
bobo123now I have installed medibuntu-repository and w32codecs. seems to be a nice pack of divx/quicktime/realvideo/windowsmedia etc codecs03:23
* bobo123 wishes the authentication keys for all these extra repositories was in ubuntu from the start.... (not the repositories but the the keys)03:25
seidosi think i'm going to have to install some food in a minute :)03:25
seidosbobo123, me too, but i think there are copyright problems. :(03:25
bdoggcan someone help me out with rhythmbox plugin?03:27
bdoggthe upnp one?03:27
seidosbdogg, i would, but i don't know what upnp is03:27
bobo123upnp is a somewhat badly named protocol for punching holes in your firewall/homerouter03:28
bdoggthis plugin03:28
seidosoh, *that* upnp.  universal plug 'n play?03:29
bdoggi just want to stream my music to my xbox03:29
bdoggbut i dont know how to configure the plugin to do that03:29
bobo123I can't think of anya other upnp ... are there others?03:29
seidosbobo123, probably not.  i was just surprised to hear it.  i haven't heard it in awhile, and didn't know it related to rhythmbox03:30
bdoggits included with the maverick rhythmbox03:30
seidosbdogg, can't you just use samba to share your files on your network, then tell your xbox to play them from there?03:30
seidosfiles == mp3 files03:31
bdoggwhats samba03:31
bobo123I guess if you want to stream *from* rhythmbox (didn't know it was possible) to a computer *outside* your home network, you would need upnp (or open up the ports manually), but I guess your xbox are at your home? you shouldn't need upnp then.... right?03:31
seidossamba is a file server for sharing files.  i haven't used it in years though, but i think it should work.03:31
bdoggso samba?03:32
bdoggany tips?03:32
seidosbobo123, that's true, it would be on the same LAN03:32
bdoggyes its on the same network03:32
seidosbdogg, you could try sudo apt-get install samba, then google for "ubuntu samba guide"03:32
bdoggwill do03:32
seidosbdogg, good luck, come back and let us know how it goes :)03:32
seidosbrb need to install food into my stomach03:33

seidosbobo123, it was good thanks for asking.04:19
bobo123Now that I'v read some more I guess the unplayable dvd here is probably having some evil™ copy protection like ARccOS or something I guess so we can't see it without using some special (windows) ripping program first :-/04:22
seidosbobo123, only a windows ripping program?  for your kid dvd?04:23
bobo123I don't know. I guess there must be something for linux too.04:33
seidosbobo123, i don't know, there was something about dvd ripping software in ubuntu in that guide i sent you.04:33
bobo123and strange that least interesting things are hardest too see :-D04:33
seidos<whisper>but i closed it</whisper>04:33
seidosbobo123, it's like that with other least interesting things.  like math.  it is hard for me to see math.04:34
bobo123oh math is simple. 1+2*3 and differentials of functions...04:37
seidosit's easy for me up until double and triple integrals.04:38

Sharlai appreciate the help guys but i have no idea what any of it means.04:48
seidosSharla, we're trying to figure out what wireless chipset you have.04:48
seidosSharla, there's no problem.  we're all just sharing our computer experience :)04:48

seidosSharla, is there a button or a switch to turn off the wireless on your netbook?04:50
Sharlayes, and i did try to make sure it is on04:50
Sharlathe light was flashing earlier when it was trying to connect04:50

firecrackerseidos: is that a good thing? should i not be having any trouble with it?05:01
sdrennanI don't have the option to adjust time and date. System/Admin/Time and Date is ghosted. It doesn't give me an option to authenticate.05:01
aveilleuxsdrennan: Is this the normal Ubuntu install, or Netbook Remix?05:01
sdrennanNormal on a notebook05:02
aveilleuxsdrennan: Let me get my Ubuntu machine up05:02
seidosfirecracker, we have the same wireless chip.  what works for me when i can't connect to the access point, is i have to turn off wireless on the network icon by right clicking and de-selecting wireless, then i have to turn off the wireless button/switch on the outside of my laptop.  leave it for a few seconds, then turn everything back on, and it works \o/05:02
sthd56that guide seems to be for redhat how do i reload a service in ubuntu?05:03
firecrackerwonder if i can try that without unplugging the wire?05:03
aveilleuxsthd56: sudo service <name> restart05:03
seidosfirecracker, yeah, shouldn't be a problem05:03
sthd56ok thanks05:03
seidosfirecracker, it's a good thing because i know a work around, as for whether you should have problems, that's kind of a political/philosophical/technological question O_o05:03
sdrennanaveilleux I have ran TXSELECT at the prompt but I no speak the Lynux language05:04
firecrackerwell i have three motorcycles, two jeeps and two vintage vehicles. so i am used to workarounds and stuff that breaks. i am just clueless when it comes to electronics05:04
seidosfirecracker, i used to have a ninja 250, but i had to sell it :(05:05
sthd56ok the port was changed thank you so much05:05
aveilleuxsdrennan: txselect? Just run sudo dpkg-reconfigure yzdata05:05
aveilleuxsdrennan: that05:05
aveilleux's so much easier05:05
firecrackermy marauder is about ready to go down the road05:05
* aveilleux fumes at the stupid location of the Mac's Return key05:05
seidosmaurader?  what is it like 1200cc?05:05
firecrackerit is the cursed bike05:06
sdrennanment TZSELECT i'll try  sudo dpkg-reconfigure yzdata05:06
seidosmy clutch lever broke on my ninja 250 when i had it.  i replaced it myself, thankfully they had the part at the shop.05:06
seidosfirecracker, i'm scared to ask, but did it work?05:07
firecrackernot yet05:07
firecrackerit is still trying05:07
aveilleuxsdrennan: but it's a GUI-based system... what do you need help with?05:07
firecrackerit has asked me for my passphrase twice05:07
firecrackerand the little waves are still going05:07
sdrennanCan't change time zone05:07
sdrennan sudo dpkg-reconfigure yzdata says not installed05:08
aveilleuxsdrennan: Did you sudo?05:08
seidosfirecracker, it asked for your pass phrase twice, that's a bad sign.  when i turn off wireless in software, then turn off the hardware switch, after i turn both back on, it works fine.05:08
aveilleuxnot yzdata05:08
sdrennangoing back in05:08
sdrennanwhat does "must be run as root" mean05:09
aveilleuxsdrennan: It means put "sudo" in front of the command, like I said the first time05:10
firecrackerOk i disabled the wireless05:11
firecrackerbut now i can't get it to come back on05:11
sdrennanI'm not used to this language but it says its where i want it. Will I have to restart to change the time on the clock?05:12
aveilleuxsdrennan: Logging out and logging back in should do it.05:13
sdrennanThanks a million. let me see what happens.05:13
firecrackerleaving briefly to restart machine05:16
firecrackernot letting me turnt he wireless back on05:16
seidosfirecracker, well, rebooting should definitely get it working again, but the trick is to get it working without rebooting :/05:16
aveilleuxhello dirgan05:23
firecrackerno luck05:26
dirganhello everybody05:26
firecrackerabout ready to pitch this thing out the door05:26
seidosfirecracker, restarting didn't get it connect to your wireless network?05:27
firecrackerand now i'm getting the "i told you so" speech05:28
firecrackerbut i already erased windows from my machine05:28
firecrackerand i just want to use my computer05:28
seidoswell, you made the morally correct choice.05:28
seidosunless you're really a fan of the bill and melinda gates foundation O_o05:29
aveilleuxfirecracker: Just making sure, did you make sure to flip the switch back on and re-enable the wireless by right-clicking the icon?05:29
seidosfirecracker, i'm trying to think of the next step.05:29
aveilleuxfirecracker: You can't do this if the machine is plugged in, I don't think05:29
firecrackeroh i thought i could???05:30
firecrackerYes i did both of those steps05:30
seidosfirecracker, i could've been wrong.  i haven't actually tried it on my laptop.05:30
firecrackerOk going to unplug and try it05:30
seidosfirecracker, i assumed the ubuntu magic would let you connect to the wireless network.05:30
firecrackerif only05:31
seidoslet me try it here at home, and see what happens05:31
firecrackerapparently it was the router itself.05:36
firecrackerrebooted that, and voila.05:36
firecracker*#&@$^(@*(@!*!@#*&@#*&!(@(*!^#@W$^*(@#!( hardware.05:36
firecrackersorry for the dumb questions, and thanks everyone for your help.05:38
dirganmay i Ask why geforce 8400 gs won' work for 10.04 version?05:39
seidoswell, that was an interesting experiment05:42
seidosit looks like connecting to wired while i was already connected to wireless disconnected me from irc?05:42
seidosi had two ip's though according to ifconfig05:42
aveilleuxdirgan: The 8400 GS is supported through the nvidia-glx driver05:42
dirganno its not mate..05:43

Abhijeetkernel accidently deleted in ubuntu 10.10 grub menu  not showing the kernel how can i recover my files17:01
Silver_Fox_Try using a live cd / usb17:02
Abhijeetcan i install the kernel using the grub menu17:03
Silver_Fox_None of the older kernals are listed?17:03
Silver_Fox_Just to be clear17:03
Abhijeetno only memory diagnostic menu is displayed17:04
Abhijeetpleae hlp me17:06
hobgoblinAbhijeet: did you actually delete the kernel?17:12
hobgoblinor just from grub ?17:12
Abhijeeti don't know but when i restarted there was nothing in the grub menu , there was only the memory diagnostic tools and the windows xp menu .17:14
hobgoblinmmm - could be a bug in 10.10 as it's not released to production and has only just gone beta - #ubuntu+1 might be a useful port of call17:15
Abhijeetbut ive been using it from one month17:16
hobgoblinor a trawl of the maverick forum even - http://ubuntuforums.org/forumdisplay.php?f=38517:16
hobgoblinwell I have to say if you can't deal with this then maybe you should be using a released version and not a development one17:17
hobgoblinAbhijeet: maybe try a chroot from a livecd and then install the kernels from there17:17
Abhijeetplease gime details of the 'chroot'17:18
ubot2A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot17:18
Abhijeethow linux kernel can be installed using chroot17:21
hobgoblinAbhijeet: I've never used it I'm afraid - but I think that once you have the chroot environment you should be able to use apt-get or aptitude to install the kernel, assuming that you have installed aptitude as it appears to not be a default anymore17:25
Abhijeetplease give me proper sequence, as im knew to  ubuntu17:27
hobgoblinAbhijeet: I don't know - and again I wonder at the wisdom in using a dev version - try the dev channel - #ubuntu+117:28
hobgoblinthat is the maverick channel at the moment17:28
hobgoblinwhatever you do I think you need to boot with the livecd for it - you might - if the kernel files are actually installed be able to boot from a grub command line - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Using%20CLI%20to%20Boot17:30
hobgoblinapart from that I am unable to help you17:30
Silver_Fox_Hello pedro3005  :)17:33
pedro3005hi Silver_Fox_17:33
philinuxAbhijeet: Try following this guide. http://www.ubuntu-inside.me/2009/06/howto-recover-grub2-after-windows.html17:35
