egsomeRealOpty, Maybe not useful, but with fast Googling I found that it is `AMD64` already, So, I think it can do 64bit somehow, see: http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/64-bit-computing/Pages/64-bit-computing.aspx00:02

egsomeldurden, Yes.00:03
ldurdenI need to pick between Ubuntu Server vs Redhat Server for a production server at my work. Is there a big enough reason to lean to one or the other?00:04
Jordan_Uburlington: Ubuntu installs grub to the first drive rather than the one the rest of Ubuntu is installed to. I don't really agree with that decision but it's intentional.00:04
ThomasB2kHi, is it possible to have text on the side of icons rather than under them in nautilus?00:04

spid3ris a bot00:06
RealOptyegsome,  does that seem to say that it is a 64bit processor?00:06
jribldurden: I'd probably go with what I was more comfortable with, but on the ubuntu side you get 5 year support on the server for 10.04 which is pretty nice00:06

ldurdenFrom an IT maintenance standpoint would I be shooting myself in the foot if I go with Ubuntu over Redhat. Linux is linux to me. I know thats blasphemy in this room but if you get down to it.00:08

hihihi100stuck in step 400:09
Psychodeliusldurden: i am an ubuntu user, but I agree with you. Linux is linux. however, the problem si the support surrounding it00:09
egsomeRealOpty, It's the time to try 64bit of Ubuntu, I've it on my servers, but for desktop still use 32bit, thinking to move soon. ( Intel Core2Quad 2.4 GHz )00:09
dberryldurden I run an ubuntu desktop and tons of CentOS boxes for the dev/prod environment00:09

dberryit is all the same00:09
Psychodeliusyou have to make your choices around support as well as the OS itself00:10
ldurdenHow do you guys feel about the Ubuntu community? I mean you are it? You see Ubuntu making the impact Red Hat has?00:10

Psychodeliusldurden: with ubuntu its mostly community support, and if no one know your issue, then not mch you can do00:11
ldurdenI was thinking about purchasing their support. So I wouldn't rely on the underground00:11
jribdibblego: just put it in it's own window :)00:12
ultrazldurden: I don't think Ubuntu will make an impact as Red Hat in production environment, as a Desktop I believe it's leading.00:12
dibblegojrib, I did that; it still doesn't work well, particularly with taking focus00:12
RealOptyegsome, yeah ive been using 64bit ubuntu on my core2duo that i use as a build machine00:12

egsomehihihi100, What error you get ?00:13
dibblegojrib, right, there is no way around it00:13

jribdibblego: http://superuser.com/questions/84387/tsclient-alternative-for-linux never used these though00:15
Hopsaburlington: But you said that it freezes at verifying DMI pool data. So it doesnt get past the bios.00:15
ldurdenthis company is only familiar with linux, they were pushing red hat but I told them I'd prefer they make it work under Ubuntu. Red Hat is solid but the people behind Ubuntu has impressive innovation00:15

Hopsaburlington: "It only froze when I moved the other hard disk to top boot priority". As you also said "before I reinstalled everything, all seemed to work". Did you install windows after linux ?

kullRemastersys question.  I'm trying to build my own .iso and when using Remastersys it forces me to download a bunch of gnome libs, when in fact I dont use gnome.  I only want the packages that I've installed to be on the .iso file and not a standard Ubuntu desktop with gnome, like it's forcing me to do.  Anyone know to do this?00:42

latagoreI can't get suspend or hiberate to work on my netbook, any advice on how to fix it or how to turn off the options?00:52
hipstersandwichrblst: Update it.00:52
Hopsacjae: explain a bit better.00:52
rblsthipstersandwich, update what? the plugin? how?00:52
Nobody_Interestiegsome, no... it's the install guide i followed to install the HPLIP.. I just thought it might have been of interest tot you00:52
jribEclectic: you don't need 32bit firefox for flash00:52
Doylecjae: there are no maximum capacities. The available disk space of the partition available to all directories without limitation00:52
hipstersandwichrblst: Go to adobe's website.00:52
Doylerblst: adobes website or just google "flash test" and go to the adobe result00:53
Eclecticjrib: i read there is no 64 bit support for flash00:53
cjaeHopsa: how much can I fill /home in that senario? and still be able to fsck and such00:53
Nobody_Interestiegsome: see the install guide say it will install from the desktop?? surely everyone will have this folder (those who use this update)00:54
Doylecjae: how big is your hard drive? that's your answer00:54
jribEclectic: nspluginwrapper lets you use 32bit flash. Just visit some site that requires flash (not youtube because they detect you don't have flash)00:54
cjaeDoyle: there must be a directory size limitation too, no?00:54
rblsthipstersandwich, Doyle: what about the flashplugin installer package in the ubuntu repo?00:54
Hopsacjae: You have not shown how big the drive or partition is.00:54
jribEclectic: erm, after you're on that site, you'll get a yellow bar at the top of firefox offering to install missing plugins00:54
hipstersandwichrblst: Try that if you'd like.00:54

SeanInSeattleHey all.  I'm running Ubuntu Netbook remix on an Asus 1201hab... and the headphones just stopped working.  Any suggestions?00:55
bobaI have my own camera driver and I get the following error: Cannot open '/dev/video0': 11, Resource temporarily unavailable00:55
rblsthipstersandwich, no, i am asking: is there a difference, is the package useless?00:55
cjaeHopsa: well I was wondering if there is limitation like ntfs and 85 % to defrag00:55
estragibcjae: there is no limit on your partition sizes, at least none that you'll be able to reach. go wild.00:56
hipstersandwichboba: Have you restarted, cycled, etc?00:56
estragibcjae: linux already reserves the space it needs by itself00:56
egsomeSeanInSeattle, Sure the headphones are working ?00:56
Hopsaboba: the previous or some other camera driver is still running. Possibly a zombie process or so.00:56
Nobody_Interestiegsome:what do you mean?00:56

Juggalo_Xwell pulseaudio was a bust00:57
Juggalo_Xsame exact issue00:57
egsomeNobody_Interesti, Just install in any directory like /opt/hplib00:57
Juggalo_Xguess ill disable the sub00:57
egsomeNobody_Interesti, and try to uninstall as i mentioned before00:57
hipstersandwichEclectic: That is probably due to regular updates.00:57
bobaI have my own camera driver and I get the following error: Cannot open '/dev/video0': 11, Resource temporarily unavailable00:57
egsomeSeanInSeattle, The Headphones ( Hardware ) Is working ?, Had you test it in another computer ?00:57
SeanInSeattleegsome:  What do you mean "sure the heaphones are working"?00:57
cjaeDoyle: dunno just thought there might be00:57
jribEclectic: if you want me to guess, I'd say you already have some flash plugin installed00:57
Nobody_Interestiegsome: could you give some more details on how to uninstall? thanks00:57
sillypenguinhi, I need to buy a video card for my future ubuntu 10.04 install... any recommendations????00:57
SeanInSeattleegsome:  Yes, we've tried with two different sets.00:57
jribEclectic: what does http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ say?00:57
Hopsacjae: Having a bit of space left is always good, but what you mean by "defrag" on Linux doesnt require free space. A bit of ram.00:58
hipstersandwichboba: I take it you just rebooted.00:58
egsomeNobody_Interesti, Just `cd` to the directory on your Desktop, Then run `make uninstall` or `make remove`, It's just a try.00:58
Doylecjae: this is the year 2010... start thinking like the evil programmers, disk space and ram is unlimited so whats the need for default limitations on home directories00:58
Nobody_Interestiegsome: do i have to stop the HP software?00:58
egsomeSeanInSeattle, Changed any configuration in the `Sound Preferences` ?00:58
egsomeNobody_Interesti, Sure.00:59
Nobody_Interestiegsome: how?00:59
cjaeDoyle: kind of figured that but was just curious00:59
Doylecjae: our world is in an era of massive resources, lazy programmers and 'users' who just don't know.  I get ya, better to know than to be unsure00:59
Eclecticjrib: successfully installed00:59
bobahipstersandwich: Yes I did reboot in order to try to fix the same problem00:59
HopsaNobody_Interesti: Press "Stop" or "Pause" :) /joking00:59
egsomeNobody_Interesti, run `ps -aux | grep hp` and get the process name, then `killall PROCESS`00:59

SeanInSeattleegsome:  Nope.  I haven't touched them in forever.00:59
jribEclectic: there you go00:59
hipstersandwichboba: Problems on other computers?01:00
rblsthipstersandwich, Doyle: adobe's webpage says i have 10,1,82,76 installed which is the latest version; what then?01:00
bobahipstersandwich: I had this problem several times with this application on computer and also other computers01:00
Eclecticso i should unstall all flash and start over?01:00
jribEclectic: why?01:00
hipstersandwichrblst: Get a new browser?01:00
bobahipstersandwich: I had this problem several times with this application on my computer and also other computers01:00
egsomeSeanInSeattle, No idea, But I feel it's a hardware problem, maybe the socket in your computer.01:00
hipstersandwichboba: Is it just the camera having problems?01:01
bobahipstersandwich: Nope01:01
jribEclectic: if you have flash installed, and your goal is to install flash, why would you uninstall it and start over?01:01
hipstersandwichboba: Did you try it on windows?01:01
bobahipstersandwich: I tried it with a different camera also01:01
SeanInSeattleegsome:  Strange.  We'll try a driver update... and if that doesn't work we might switch over to regular Ubuntu.01:01
Eclecticjrib: because the site says i still need flash installed01:01
bobahipstersandwich: No the driver is only for Linux01:01
hipstersandwichI mean the camera.01:02
jribEclectic: what version does the link I gave you say you have?  What site says you still need flash installed?01:02
egsomeSeanInSeattle, You can also try running Ubuntu Live CD, to see if it working or not.01:02
bobahipstersandwich: I mean the camera is working at the moment01:02
egsomeSeanInSeattle, Or from USB Stick01:02
bobahipstersandwich: I mean the camera is working at the moment on Ubuntu01:02
bobahipstersandwich: But not with my own implemented application01:02
Eclecticjrib:  I'm sorry that is an active X that needs to be installed01:02
hipstersandwichboba: Oh.  Can't help you with your own apps.01:02
SeanInSeattleegsome:  That's a very good idea.  I'll try that out.01:02

iluminator101jrib i am trying to copy /etc to /dev/sdb1/hp2back2/etc101:05
egsomeNobody_Interesti, Make sure process name is correct, Or it may be already killed.01:05
hipstersandwichrblst: I was unaware.  Try another browser, perhaps.01:05
jribiluminator101: I saw.  What did the error tell you?  Check if the error is lying to you or not.01:05
iluminator101jrib etc1 is a folder01:05
Scunizihipstersandwich: did that earlier and left for 2 hours.. caught 3 in email... not that it would affect me much but perhaps my windows bretherin01:05
jribiluminator101: ls -ld /dev/sdb1/hp2backup2/etc101:05

SeanInSeattleegsome:  Quick question, how to create live usb installation of ubuntu?  Can I just use the startup disk creator?01:06
harlanI have a Dell 600SC and I am trying to get ubuntu working on it. It would not boot the 9.x or the 10.04 install CDs, but I read a thread that said somebody was able to install 8.4.4 and upgrade from that.  Partially true - it loaded and rebooted 8.4.4 just fine, but after upgrading to the latest release the reboot fails, looks like a kernel module problem.01:06
jribiluminator101: you don't access it through /dev.   You mount it somewhere01:06
avi_SeanInSeattle, Yup.01:06
bobahipstersandwich: Could you please suggest what you would do if this was the case with cheese for example?01:06
hipstersandwichrblst: Try chrome, or Minefield, the firefox alpha if you feel adventurous.01:06
Eclecticjrib:  thanks much01:06
SeanInSeattleavi_:  thx, I'll do that.01:06
egsomeSeanInSeattle, Exactly, It's perfect one.01:06
hipstersandwichboba: I haven't a clue.01:06
rblsthipstersandwich, i might try those, thanks01:06

Nobody_InterestiHP logo is in my taskbar... I think it is still running?01:06

egsomeNobody_Interesti, try `pkill PROCESS`01:07
jribEclectic: there was some tux program that did basic arithmetic I think.  Check out edubuntu, they probably have some good programs installed by default (and those programs will be in the ubuntu repositories because the repositories are the same01:07
hipstersandwichScunizi: Try running antivirus scans at night or when it is not used.01:07
Eclecticjrib:  thanks i'll try that01:07
Scunizihipstersandwich: so basically turn off realtime scanning and run it manual01:08
hipstersandwichScunizi: Yes, this will help.  With speed, that is.01:08

jribberot3: never used it.  Maybe just use some Fn keys in the corner like F8-F12?01:13

Benwaanyoneofus→ hi02:38
estragibwally: if you don't have any other copies of the photos and they are important, stop using that partition now. any disk access will make retrieval more unlikely. it won't be easy as it is.02:38

andyisMmmk. Any help on that? Its a labtop, so I'm not sure where to start02:42
egsomeblsmith, tried to install `lsb` ?02:42
headkase314etherealite, is there anything preventing you from using a GUI like are you using Ubuntu Server?  Because if you have a GUI the best way is through those download links and gdebi02:43
egsomeblsmith, Reboot doesn't change much in Linux, ( Linux to be root, Windows to reboot ) :)02:43
headkase314etherealite, by best I mean easiest.02:43
etherealiteheadkase314 does that have the nautilus deps? I have a gui, just no nautilus02:43

datadudeSo, I have a 2008 Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Dell 1395 Wireless card. The wireless card worked in Hardy, Intrepid and Jaunty,and it also worked in Linux Mint. I have not been able toget it to work in Lucid, though, so I'm slumming in a Vista partition.03:22

datadudeIs anyone able to tell me what  I have to do to get this working?03:22
zonylHi All.  My work blocks access to gmail and was wondering about a simple proxy solution I can setup on my home webserver.  Anyone have any recommendations on where to start?03:23
rockhopperdatadude, can you do lspci | grep i net and paste bin here03:23
dataduderockhopper: I am in Vista right now, as I can't get online in Lucid. :(03:24
rockhopperzonyl, you can run squid in your home pc and tunnel to your pc from your work pc with ssh03:24
lulu7VintageRitz: How familiar are you with the terminal?03:24
neobosIdleOne, if i want write something in the already created file what is the code03:24

VintageRitzlulu7: but I'm getting there. mess up enough and you learn lots of commands.03:26
IdleOneneobos: I strongly suggest you go to http://ubuntu-manual.org/ and download the free manual. it has a lot of very useful and helpful info.03:26
rockhopperif you can see your device with lspci command and can't find with iwconfig, try reinstalling the drivers for it!03:26
zonylrockhopper: i have squid, ssh etc, unfortunately, they block everything at L7 to http03:26
noisewaterphddatadude: i can tell you that dell usually puts cheap broadcom's in everything, maybe it needs a driver?03:26
rockhopperzonyl, Isn't the port 22 open at your work place?03:26
VintageRitzlulu7: can you explain a bit more?03:26
neobosIdleOne, thanks see my pm03:26
dataduderockhopper: I tried updating the driver through Vista, and it said it was up to date. Should I just search for a better one?03:26
rockhopperThey must have some port open, just use that port for the sshd in your home pc!!03:27
zonylrockhopper: Nope.  I have nmap the whole shebang with nothing.  Only HTTP rolls through their transparent proxy.03:27
IdleOneneobos: I did not recieve any pm from you03:27
rockhopperzonyl, Is at least port 80 open?03:27
noisewaterphdneobos: there is a book called Unix Power Tools that I believe would be a very nice addition to your bookshelf, check it out03:27
rockhopperdatadude, I'm talking about updating the driver in ubuntu! not in the vista03:27
zonylzonyl: Yes, but I have tried to route 80 to ssh and it would appear they are inspecting the packet at L7 to ensure it is http traffic.03:28
dataduderockhopper: How would I go about doing that?03:28
Blue1zonyl: ssh doesn't use port 80 uses port 2203:28
neobosnoisewaterphd: can i get downloaded03:28
noisewaterphdzonyl: you could tunnel ssh over http, then they won't block03:29
zonylzonyl: it uses the port I specify in as the startup param ;)03:29

Blue1zonyl: easiest way to geth ssh working forward port 22 to the machine you want to run ssh on, then sudo apt-get install openssh-server03:34
noisewaterphddatadude: that is your answer, or your question rather, get the most detailed debug output you can from that install, and then ask how to solve that problem03:34
datadudeYup, back in like ten.03:34
ChogyDanTyph: I think it means that your passwords will be stored in plain text on your machine03:34

asymptote-schoolIzinucs: I know a lot of people like wicd but I've never had any problems until suddenly my machine crashed just now04:15
invitadoI was installing ALSA. i was just doing copy/paaste from a website04:15
VintageRitzlulu7: says    "mount: mounting none on /dev failed....."   something like that. Hangs there for 10 secs or so, then goes on to the splash (?) screen and comes up fine.04:15
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: I'd really like to know what happened and how my network connection was affected04:15
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: do you know of any way for me to verify that my network card isn't damaged ?04:15
Izinucsasymptote-school: that or simply uninstall nm-appelate and do it manually in the conf files..04:15
invitadowhen the system shut down, and then restarted, and now my wholw monitor sceen loks weird!!04:15
Blue1asymptote-school: I was never able to get wicd to work04:16
invitadoLooks weird04:16
invitadoCan anyone do a diagnosis of my PC?04:16
invitadoon a LOG04:16
invitadoor something?04:16
Izinucsasymptote-school: you could do a ifdown eth0 in terminal and then a ifup eth0 and see what happens.04:16
invitadoi know there is a way to fix this04:16

asymptote-schoolIzinucs: Blue1 well I don't know if that's the way I want to handle this04:16
invitadoI do NOT want to reisntall for the 27th time04:17
asymptote-schoolsomething happened to cause this problem - I'd like to see what happened04:17
invitadoBlue1: do you know where i can finde the evnt log?04:17
VintageRitzlulu7: and I STILL have no openGL for cairo-dock, so I ended up right where I started, but now with an additional something weird going on.04:17
asymptote-schoolIf possible I prefer not to remove an application if it's been working all this time04:17
Blue1invitado: /var/log/messages or just do a dmesg04:17
Izinucsasymptote-school: the other is wifi radar.. but I'm not sure about using it for a wired connection.. I haven't used it in the last year04:17
VintageRitzlulu7: that'll teach me........but probably not.04:17
dvasile1Hi, I'm attempting to run a TFTP and DHCP sever.  When I do "sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart" i get a fail.  I'm on 10.0404:17
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: no I'm familiar with that - no need to install that04:17
Izinucsasymptote-school: perhaps remove and reinstall it04:18
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: is it gnome-network-manager ?04:18
lulu7VintageRitz: Not every install likes every set up out there. Lesson learned the hard way04:18
miststlkrIf I werte to spring for a real RAID controller card, linux shouldn't have any of the issues that I am having with fakeRAID with that setup, correct?04:18
Izinucsasymptote-school: yes04:18
Izinucsasymptote-school: or simply network-manager04:18
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: ok and I use the --purge option right04:19
VintageRitzlulu7: yeah, I'd probably try to roll back, but I'm kind squeamish now about touching anything.04:19
Izinucsasymptote-school: the same name typically can be used to start it from a terminal then you can watch the output04:19
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: yeah I was trying that as well04:19
Izinucsasymptote-school: yes --purge04:19
asymptote-schoolI googled a lot and no matter what I tried, the applet kept saying NetworkManager is not running04:19
asymptote-schooland it was showing up in ps -ae04:19
Izinucsasymptote-school: sudo apt-get remove --purge network-manager04:19
asymptote-schooljust really would like to know what happened04:19
SJrHow can I get a dump of every installed package, in a format condusive to reinstallation?04:20
VintageRitzlulu7: it's only broke this far, don't try to break it more (derivative of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it.")04:20
dvasile1Where is the syslog????04:20
lulu7VintageRitz: google.com/linux is a good place to poke around also04:20
SJrlike I'm about to format my system, and I want a dump of packages to reinstall, on a best effort basis.04:20
Blue1dvasile1: /var/log/messages04:20
dvasile1blue1: ty04:20
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: ugh...sine I removed it do you think you could help me get my interfaces working04:20
Blue1dvasile1: err /var/log/syslog sorry about that.04:20
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: this is really embarassing I'm usually helping everyone in the Networking & Wireless sub forum on UF04:21
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: I've just never encountered this before04:21
VintageRitzlulu7: I do have to say that most write-ups and documentation falsely assume a certain amount of knowledge, although the Ubuntu support docs, both official and community are really QUITE good.04:21
Izinucsasymptote-school: :).. I'll switch computers and be there as Scunizi.. my nick spelled backwards.. my desktop is setup as static .. manually04:21
asymptote-schoolIzinucs: ty04:22
=== Blue1 is now known as Blue1away
lulu7VintageRitz: I am not sure about the dock issue04:22
VintageRitzlulu7: one thing I can't find, though, is where to locate different commands for the terminal. For example, which commands need sudo and which don't.04:22
VintageRitzlulu7: dock?04:23
VintageRitzlulu7: oh. gotcha.04:23
grokenwhen base-config asks, "Shall I enable md5 passwords?", what does that mean exactly?04:23
VintageRitzlulu7: no worries. that was just me complaining.04:23
invitadopLEASE, someone check this log, and see whats wrong whit it04:23
dvasile1I'm trying to set up my dhcp3-server for pxe boot.  I used the default config here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallServer but it doesn't work.  How do I know what IP range to set it to??04:24
Scuniziasymptote-school: ok.. martini in hand and have powered my nose..04:24
asymptote-schoolScunizi: lol i'm going to pm you ok so we have our own window04:24
lulu7VintageRitz: For the most part it will say if you need to be sudo. Usually things on a "system" level require sudo04:24
VintageRitzScunizi: hey, you came back. Missed the chaos?04:24
Scuniziasymptote-school: sure04:24
scott_inodvasile1, are you trying to do some thin client setup?04:25
VintageRitzlulu7: yeah, I'm getting the "permission denied" = "input sudo, moron" correlation :D04:25
VintageRitzlulu7: I do learn.04:25
dvasile1scott_ino: I don't think so...I just want to set up my desktop to remote install an OS on another computer04:25
scott_inodvasile1, ahh i see04:26
lulu7VintageRitz: If it reads the blank DVD disk then Brasero should do it (assuming the option presents itself). I have no idea how k3b is but others like it04:26
scott_inowhere are you getting errors04:26
dvasile1scott_ino: I'm just following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PXEInstallServer step by step, everything is good until I restart the dhcp server. it fails, the sys log says the config file is BS04:27
coz_VintageRitz,  I personally find Brasero lacking in the ability to burn an ISO withouth errors04:27
invitadoDid some one read my log?04:27
lulu7VintageRitz: Learning the commands is just through constantly snooping around and living by the terminal04:27
coz_VintageRitz,   in gnome I prefer gnomebaker and in kde I preger  k3b04:27
invitadoSomething is wrong with my Ubuntu04:27
VintageRitzlulu7: I think I'll give that a try then and if it doesn't work, I'm sure I'll be back, now that I know how to get into irc.04:27
scott_inodvasile1, which file dhcp3.conf?04:27
coz_VintageRitz, be aware that if you install k3b you will also pull down a whole host of kde libraries04:28
scott_inoi mean.. dhcpd.conf04:28
dvasile1scott_ino: /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf04:28
VintageRitzcoz: I was trying to use gnomebaker. It won't burn, ejects the disc immediately with errors and denied permissions.04:28
invitadoAll of a sudden, the monitor resolution is BIG, and can't even fix it with nVidia monitor settings04:28
coz_invitado,  what is your ubuntu doing that makes it "something wrong" ?04:28
lulu7VintageRitz: It is late here, turning in soon but I am sure others can assist with it. This system you are using, is it dual-boot with Win7?04:28
tacomasterif i was wanting to learn a programming language that ubuntu uses the most what language would that be?04:28
coz_VintageRitz,  oooo that's just not right04:28
VintageRitzlulu7: yes04:28
coz_tacomaster,   C04:28
dvasile1tacomaster: fortran7704:28
VintageRitzcoz: my thoughts exactly. hard to back up that way.04:29
lulu7VintageRitz: And the files are on which partition?04:29
invitadoco_: I was installing a driver, and a command said to restart, and when i restat i have this monitor resolution BIG, is too BIG to fit the screen04:29
Emanonhey all quick question how do i change the date display format on the system tray calendar manually for instance to yyyy-mm-dd04:29
coz_invitado,  is this nvidia?04:29
invitadoco_: And i cant even fix it with Nvidia monitor settings04:29
VintageRitzlulu7: the files I'm trying to burn. They're on my Linux side. I would get rid of Windows entirely if I could watch Netflix from Linux.04:29
coz_invitado,  ok first open nvidia-settings and tell me which driver is being used04:30
lulu7VintageRitz: That makes 2 of us, that and my work software is windows/mac only04:30
scott_inodvasile1, hmmm sorry, maybe try the LTSP channel as they do a lot of pxe stuff/ dhcpd.conf settings and all tat04:30
Emanonbet ya its 19504:30
dvasile1k thanks04:30
VintageRitzlulu7: I don't remember the last time I did anything over there. if you don't mind sharing, where are you located (just wondering because of the lateness).04:31
lulu7VintageRitz: There is a petition going on to get Netflix to make a compatible player for linux04:31
VintageRitzlulu7: hey, I'll sign.04:31
tpa1211That'll be the day04:31
coz_invitado,  did you check that?04:31
invitadocoz_: 195.36.2404:31
scott_inolulu7, ehh petitions wont work, it'll take good ole fashion ingenuity04:31
Emanonha im goodish04:31
VintageRitzlulu7: love Netflix, but geez. I don't even have MS on my phone anymore.04:31
coz_invitado,   ok now in a terminal copy and paste this command and paste the readout here     lspci | grep -i vga04:31
lulu7VintageRitz: You can also call in and ask about Linux support as they tally the calls towards the petition.04:32
Emanontrue scott_ino someone needs to write a workaround04:32
Emanonperhaps using the wii version via dolphin?04:32
VintageRitzlulu7: I will definitely do that.04:32
scott_inoEmanon, I mean it should be possible, wasn't Mono working on a silverlight port? isn't that what they use ( I don't watch netflix)04:32
lulu7VintageRitz: EST timezone. It has been too long of a day04:32
Emanonyou mean moonlight?04:32
invitadocoz_: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G96 [Quadro FX 580] (rev a1)04:32
Emanonit doesnt work yet but that would be nice04:32
scott_inoEmanon, yes Moonlight but it's made by the Mono people i thought04:33
coz_invitado,  ok  now open  in that terminal  type  sudo nvidia-settings04:33
VintageRitzlulu7: yeah, I'm central, so not quite so long yet.04:33
Emanonsoon as i re-brew my wii i should just dump the netflix disk iso and post it to be used in dolphin that would solve the problem04:33
litropyHi, peeps. When I gksu gdm setup, I get things like "WARNING **: Unable to find users: no seat-id found" and when I click "Unlock", Unlock fades, but no functions activaate for input.04:33
Emanonit might be scott04:33
coz_invitado,  when that opens click the "X Server Display Configuration"04:33
VintageRitzlulu7: head to bed then. thanks for the time and help.04:33
coz_invitado,   there on the right...you should see a graphic of your monitor.....yes?04:34
lulu7VintageRitz: Hope that gets working for you.04:34
invitadoWait, let me change to SUDO BASH04:34
melow01I'm getting into using forums more and more. Is there a way to have a single username that will work for all forums?04:35
VintageRitzlulu7: me too. If not, I'll just make a small pest of myself until I stumble onto an answer.04:35
coz_melow01,  no ..not unless you register on each forum with that name04:35
scott_inomelow01, get a unique username ;)04:36
melow01coz_, bummer.04:36
melow01scott_ino, how's that work?04:36
coz_melow01,  for example .. i would assume that  "melow01" is unique enough for every forum :)04:36
Emanonso at the risk of being annoying any idea on the date change thing?04:36
invitadocoz_: I cant04:36
invitadoi am in another user04:36
coz_invitado,  oh04:36
invitadoI cant do it in my Administrator04:36
melow01coz_, it has been, its just a pain signing up for an account at every single forum04:36
invitadoits too big04:36
coz_invitado, and can you get back to the default user account?04:37
coz_melow01,  yes it is ,,,however ...once done it is likely "forever" :)04:37
coz_invitado,  i am confused04:37
invitadooops sorry for CAPS04:37
melow01coz_, true04:37
coz_invitado,  wait ...when you installed ubuntu you put in your username and password  ....yes?04:38
fivetwentysixHow do I enable ubuntu to accept remote connections?04:38
invitadoI am in another account, as a guest. In this account, everything is alittle bit smaller04:38
casharhello I setup an ldap server and phpldapadmin and everything runs the way is expected but how can I change the server password?04:38
fivetwentysixi've already added bind [server ip]04:38
fivetwentysixin /etc/mysql/my.conf04:38
invitadoIn the account where i am root, everything is too big, and cant acces Xchat, or other stuff04:38
coz_invitado,  ok and when you reboot and log in with the origianl user account....can you get onto the desktop?04:38
noisewaterphdcashar: the password to what server?04:38
invitadocoz_: tell me what to do there04:39
casharnoisewaterphd: ldap server04:39
noisewaterphdcashar: the server itself, the ldap server, the mysql server?04:39
invitadocoz_: Do you want to see a log or something?04:39
coz_invitado,   ok.... open a terminal ...type    sudo nvidia-settings   then click the  "X Server Display Configuration"  section...there you should she a graphic representation of your monitor04:39
scott_inoinvitado, you can't login as root as it randomizes the pw on ubuntu in theory.. so what do you mean by that04:39
dougbdoes anyone know how to capture the output audio and input audio at the same time in ubuntu?04:40
coz_invitado,  then click the "Resoluton" pull down and choose the resolution you want   then click the  "Save to X Configureation File"  then reboot04:40
scott_inodougb, you just warped my brain with that question04:40
casharnoisewaterphd: the ldap server itself04:40
invitadoIt does not work04:40
invitadothere a are only 2 optio04:40
coz_invitado,  also click the "Apply" button before writing to x config  to test if that is what you want04:40
noisewaterphdcashar: I think the ldap admin passwd is in /etc/ldap or something like that04:41
coz_invitado,  what are the 2 options04:41
Emanonfivetwentysix: they dont like ubuntu tweak but it has an option to turn on remote desktop as a single checkbox just to let you know04:41
invitado620x and 320 x04:41
dougbsay i'm talking to someone on skype, i can either record what i'm saying or i can record what they are saying through recordmydesktop and pulseaudio, but i want to record both sides of the conversation04:41
noisewaterphdcashar: but I haven't used ldap in ages, google.com probably knows04:41
invitadoAnd when i choose that, everything getes TOO giant04:41
coz_invitado,  ok  2 things...first open system/administration/hardware drivers04:41
systmso.., is dwm on apt-get04:41
coz_invitado,   see if the  nvidia_current driver is the one installed04:41
casharnoisewaterphd: is giving me a lot of things but that, thanks though04:42
invitadoYou know what? you gave an idea!04:42
coz_systm,  mm   try   sudo apt-get install dwm  to test04:42
coz_systm,  or open synaptic package manager  ...hit "Search"  type in    dwm04:42
invitadoWhy dont i just downloaded from Ubuntu Software Center?04:42
scott_inosystm, do sudo apt-cache search dwm04:42
coz_invitado,  I would check hardware drivers first04:42
invitadothere is no administration04:43
invitadonot even a .administration04:43
invitadoIf i go to my other account, i wont be able to "talk" to you anymore04:44
systmok, i did the minimal install.. with just xorg, whats the keyswitch to open a new xterm04:44
Administrator__this iRC is very hot04:44

gartraland firefox give Bus Error and quits04:47
invitadoscott_ino: do you know how to read a log?04:47
xanguaevanthebeast: chromium is aviable in lucid repository04:47
ipv5this is really weird. i restarted clamav and it complains that the virus db is timestamped in the future. So I run 'date' and sure enough I'm 7 hours behind current time. So I run ntpdate and then date again to check, and it's fixed. So I restart clamav again, but I get the same message. And now the crazy bit: running date again shows I'm 7 hours off again! I've done this a few times just to...04:47
ipv5...make sure I'm not nuts...but every time I restart clamav it runs my clock back 7 hours...anybody know what's going on?04:47
evanthebeastit's version 5 though, and i have that, the latest version is 704:47
invitadoIf you tell me where it is you could read it and then do a diagnosis04:47
evanthebeastdo i need to update my repository?04:47
systmok.. so what were the choices for installing dwm04:47
xanguagartral: better try chromium, it's open source ;)04:48
evanthebeastchromium is fast as shit btw04:48
gartralxangua: i cant install anything due to Bus Errors04:48
Emanongartral: try srware iron no install needed04:48
R0b0t1Hello. I am trying to build tiemu, as it will not install properly in synaptic. It requires Qt >= 3.0.2, I have installed Qt4, however, the ./configure script still does not complete correctly. What might be wrong?04:48
scott_inoevanthebeast, what do you mean you downloaded a .zip file? you need to install that via apt, synaptic, etc..04:48
Emanonjust extract and run the executable04:48
xanguaevanthebeast: the latest development and unstable version is 7, if you want it just add the 'chromium daily build ppa' under your own risk04:48
gartralEmanon: what?04:49
evanthebeastah ok, I just figured if they were on 7, 5 was a little out of date04:49
scott_inoinvitado, can you refresh me as to "how you originially installed the driver, was it working before etc.."04:49
evanthebeasti'll find the repository on their website i need to add04:49
invitadoWell, its been like this for months, everytime i try to do something i do not know, well, the system mess up04:50

Emanonjust extract and run no installation needed04:51
invitadoscott_ino: It is the built in audio, i was downloading this driver, or actually, just copy/paste from a website, installing ALSA and all of a sudden, the system restarted04:51
evanthebeastscott_ino: so it's pretty stable? I would assume there has been a stable release between 5 and 7 and i'll go with that if this is pretty crash-prone04:51
scott_inoinvitado, so which drivers did you have or try to install from the start?04:51
invitadoscott_ino: IAnd when it restarted, the monitor resolution was too BIG, i cant' even fix it in the Nvidia x Server04:51
Emanonand should you choose you can move it into a system directory like /usr/bin or something and link to it as the default browser, thats what i do04:52
gartralemanon well i cant op[en any browsers to get a link.. so could you help me fix whats wrong?04:52
invitadoscott_ino: Some realtek drivers04:52

scott_inoevanthebeast, I'd stick with whatever version is in the usual ubuntu repos, not PPA but yes, it was normally ok04:53
invitadothis is so annoying04:53
scott_inoinvitado, i thought this was a graphics issue04:53
invitadonot knowing stuff04:53
scott_inowas it not?04:53
gartraland firefox is throwing a wierd "Bus error" message04:53
invitadoWell, yes, now it is04:53

invitadoscott_ino: So, do you know how to fix it?04:53
dlp211is there a server specific chat room?04:54
evanthebeastscott_ino: thanks for the help, I'll probably juts go with the PPA though since I was having trouble running extensions with 5. quick question: what is the best/most popular irc client on linux?04:54
scott_inoevanthebeast, xchat is what I use, there are others04:54
etherealiteusing aptitude i get the following error "the following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2" I cant run aptitude update. please help.04:54
Emanonand can you do a fresh install of chrome (like complete remove in synaptic and reinstall)?04:54
invitadoI guess not04:54
Emanonsorry forgot to address that to gartral04:55
scott_inoinvitado, so your issue is your graphics driver... shouldn't have anything to do with other updates04:55
gartralEmanon: i cant change any packages, apt-get and synaptic are throwing the same cryptic "Bus error" message as firefox04:55
invitadoscott_ino: Yes, graphic04:55
evanthebeastalso where should i go for general reading about how ubuntu/linux is set up? I literally just installed 2 days ago and have been customizing my system pretty much nonstop. I'm fairly computer competent but i would like to learn more04:55
Emanonok well we just went past my mediocre knowledge hope someone else knows how to help you04:55
R0b0t1Hello. I am trying to build tiemu, as it will not install properly in synaptic. It requires Qt >= 3.0.2, I have installed Qt4, however, the ./configure script still does not complete correctly. What might be wrong?04:56
scott_inoinvitado, can you go system/administration/hardware drivers and tell me what you have in there regarding your nvidia drivers04:57
scott_inoevanthebeast, lots of reading on various google sites04:57
Emanonevanthebeast: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-manual04:57
evanthebeastthats what i've been doing, learning a lot by just trying to figure out whatever problems i have with configuring stuff04:57
scott_inoevanthebeast, and tinkering is a good way to learn obviously. Lots has changed in linux throughou the years in order to make things easier for most end users. But... I'd learn the various components first how it's organized etc...04:58
evanthebeastthanks for the link emanon04:58
evanthebeastany more specific sites to recommend?04:58
Emanonnp my google fu is moderate hehe04:59
Emanonuh let me check04:59
cromagis it possible to mount an EXT4 partition  on a linuxbox on a local network without NFS ?04:59
invitadoscott_ino: I only have 2 choices 640x480 and 320x24004:59
cromagjust by mount ip:folder mountpoint ?04:59
scott_inoinvitado, that's not the right area: System/administration/hardware drivers04:59

popkorn_G'nite all Thanks05:01
evanthebeastvery much appreciate it guys, seeya later05:02
cromagjkazana: thanks, i left important stuff out, is it possible with a ubuntu out of the box installation ?05:02
scott_inoinvitado, which is what05:02
cromagrephreased question05:02
invitadoscott_ino: It does not said05:02
invitadoscott_ino: It just says that it has the current one05:02
scott_inoit should at least say what version give a number etc...05:03
R0b0t1I have a program that requires KDE. How might I install KDE but not all the programs that go with it?05:03
Emanoninstall the program and let it handle its own dependencies?05:04
scott_inoinvitado, they may have changed it... i don't have nvidia anymore so give me one sec05:04
scott_inoR0b0t1, should be fine it will just get the libraries for you05:04
R0b0t1scott_ino: Would you know what they are called?05:05
R0b0t1I keep seeing these ones called "kdebase" and etc, but those include the programs.05:05
scott_inoR0b0t1, what app are you instaling05:05
freddy_dudeis there a good alarm software for linux05:05
freddy_dudejust loud and annoying05:05
R0b0t1Can't be f'ed to mess with the configure script... the windowing system to use is not in the configure help.05:05
R0b0t1And the package won't install to dependency problems.05:06
invitadoscott_ino: can you read spanish?05:06
scott_inoR0b0t1, is there a reason why you can't install it via synaptic?05:06
scott_inoinvitado, no sorry05:06
R0b0t1scott_ino: Yeah, it says something like "needs package X but won't install"05:06
invitadoscott_ino: Well, you dont have to, have a look at the pic05:06
R0b0t1So I go >.> and just try to go build it.05:06
scott_inoinvitado, k one sec05:06
Emanontry enabling the extra repositories in the source manager then updating in synaptic05:07
scott_inoR0b0t1, what is the full error05:07
Emanonthen try the install again05:07
scott_inoinvitado, ok I see... what graphics card do you have05:07
invitadoNvidia Quadro FX 58005:08
scott_inoinvitado, perhaps there's an issue with that drive and your card and i'll check and see05:08
R0b0t1scott_ino: That _is_ the full error. It pops up in a dialog box. "Package tiemu cannot be installed: \n Requires package X but won't install ... [repeat 5]"05:08
amstanubottu: #help05:08
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:08
Emanonfreddy_dude: i think there is a time management program with an alarm in evolution (the mail/calandar app?05:08
amstanwhat software is ubottu using again?05:08
scott_inoinvitado, did you just start having this problem?05:08
R0b0t1scott_ino: You want which packaged specifically?05:08
R0b0t1Honestly I think it'd be easier to just find out what the configure script's switch is or install KDE, but *shrug*05:09
scott_inoR0b0t1, what the error said when trying to install via synaptic or from apt-get05:09
invitadoscott_ino: You see scott, the thing is, everything was workin fine, except when i copy pasted everythig from that webpage, i think it was some kind of badware05:09
invitadoI was installing ALSA, from Gusty05:09
invitadoGusty version05:09

invitadoi have 10.0405:10
scott_inoinvitado, are you using ubuntu 10.04 if so why would you install also from gusty05:10
R0b0t1scott_ino: I used the GUI version. "tiemu: \n Depends: libticables3 but it is not going to be installed \n Depends libticalcs4 but it is not going to be installed \n Depends libtifiles0 but it is not going to be installed."05:10
scott_inoR0b0t1, k give me one sec05:10

R0b0t1Nah it's k05:11
invitadoWell, here is the weird part. In 8.04, my eth0 works fine, in 10.04 etho does not detect my internet cable. and have no sound either05:11
invitadothat was before the power surge problem05:11
Emanonoh btw apt-get doesnt work over tor network any ideas why?05:11
scott_inoinvitado, I just don't see how even changing alsa would affect your graphics05:12
invitadoI mean.... after the problem, 10.04 did not detected my cable, nor my built in sound.05:12

|Sacred|just put adb in /bin directory05:23
SpaceGhostC2C|Sacred|: that's not right.05:23

SpaceGhostC2Cmaco: Do you know anything about any new updates? I got a silly "Needs to partial upgrade" thing. :(05:28
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: in what sense?05:28
macoSpaceGhostC2C: im not on lucid, but usually that means something is half-built and if you wait til tomorrow itll be done05:28
SpaceGhostC2Cmaco: Oh, okay. Thanks. I was wondering.05:29
samuel2010Anyone know anything about video editing?05:29
LicuadoraSpaceGhostC2C: Well, my monitor resolution got too BIG, when i restarted it was like that, i cant even change it in the "nvidia x server settings"!05:29
LicuadoraI have the current driver05:29
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: too big as in the resolution was too low? 600x800 or too high like 1280x1024?05:30
LicuadoraIt was when i was doing some copy/paste from a website, tryin to install ALSA, (Gusty version) even though i have 10.0405:30
Loshkisamuel2010: have a look at avidemux first. If that won't do it for you, you'll need to check out transcode, mencoder or ffmpeg. These last 3 are pigs...05:30
avi_Anyone have a lucid/maverick-style mono icon for xchat?05:30
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: Try making a backup of your xorg configureation like this: sudo mv /etc/Xorg/xorg.conf /etc/Xorg/xorg.backup05:31
samuel2010Loshki,    will they put subtitles on the video file?  so that i dont need to open the subtiles file?  if u know what i mean?05:31
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: why were you trying to use ALSA? Does Pulse not work?05:31
LicuadoraSpaceGhostC2C: tOO BIg like everything is too big, i do not know about resolutions, i have only 2 options in the settings, 620x480 and 320x28005:31

macoLicuadora: you need a higher resolution. something with 4 digits on each side of the x05:32
neobosany body help me to trace ip address05:32
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: remove the driver or increase resolution size.05:32
SpaceGhostC2Cneobos: what do you want to accomplish?05:33
Loshkisamuel2010: yes, you are talking about hard-coded subtitles, i.e. subs that are burnt into the video instead of being kept in a separate file. People avoid hard-coded subtitles because they can't be turned off.05:33
samuel2010Loshki,   i know  but i want them on the video.  i want them hard-coded ones.05:34
Loshkisamuel2010: do you plan to burn the result to a dvd so that it plays on a dvd player?05:34
samuel2010Loshki,  no .  its a karaoke file.05:35
Licuadoramaco: I did what you said, and it didnt worked05:35
samuel2010Loshki,  a karaoke song hehe05:35
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: did you try mine?05:35
LicuadoraThe system restarted05:35
samuel2010Loshki,  so it needs to be on the video  otherwise its pointless.05:35
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: scroll up and try it, then restart and see if it helps.05:35
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: try to set the resolution after rebooting too.05:35
collimicI am looking for someone to help me with a problem in iptables. I am running ubuntu 8.1 with iptables. I am tring to block an ip address inside my network from reaching the outside world. Ubuntu 8.10 is what I am using as my router. the modem plugges into eth0 and the rest of my network plugs into eht1 or eth4 depending on what it is but I need to block an ip address from reaching the outside world at all.05:36
Loshkisamuel2010: so what format will the finak karaoke be in? What are you going to play it on?05:36
collimicI have tried iptables -A INPUT -s IP-ADDRESS -j DROP with no results as well as iptables -A INPUT -m mac --mac-source 00:0F:EA:91:04:08 -j DROP with no luck with either.05:36
Loshkisamuel2010: finak -> final05:36
samuel2010Loshki,   on youtube and youku     final format is gonna be AVI05:36
LicuadoraSpaceGhostC2C: I cant increase resolution, since i only have to options, and they are too small, or too big05:36
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: you already backed up your xorg and rebooted to have a new one generated and then tried to set the resolution?05:37
SpaceGhostC2CLicuadora: is this on some other machine, because I didn't notice you disconnect or go /away :(05:37

samuel2010Loshki,   any ideas?05:41
Loshkisamuel2010: I'm running avidemux now for you to see if it will work. Do you already have some video, or do you just have music (mp3?) and lyrics (text?)05:42
jkazanasamuel2010: sounds like something that should be done in a video editor software (F**al C*t P*r) and render the titles right in. I know it's not using linux but i don't edit movies in Ubuntu05:42
SpaceGhostC2CBadger32d: Along the same lines, I'm pleasantly surprised to see that man make cookie works, although unexpectedly. :)05:42

ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)05:58
pryordaraid 105:58
Loshkisamuel2010: now configure the video section. Choose the first choice i.e. mpeg4-asp (lavc) then hit 'filters'05:59

Emanontry forming the raid with the partition manager instead of the built in bios tool05:59
t3cki3@Emanon: M using SWAT to share samba on my ubuntu, so i have to set it up, but can't seem to figure it out05:59

t3cki3@SpaceGhostC2C:  what about samba in general...06:03
SpaceGhostC2Ct3cki3: yeah. But then again, I don't think I've seen your question about samba, just about the administration tool.06:03
t3cki3@Emanon: thanks for the help.. appreciate it...06:03
samuel2010Loshki,   ok06:03

real1adamhey Ubuntu community, I'm trying to get my AirPort Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 wireless card working on my iMac with Ubuntu. word on the street is that there are no Linux drivers or equivalents for Broadcom cards. is this true? am I SOL?06:23
FalseLobsterI have to write a shitty Linux shell by friday06:23
FalseLobsterand I can't even install linux06:23
Emanontry gksu nautilus FalseLobster06:23
Emanonthen just navigate to the file manually in your now root file browser06:23
macoreal1adam: not true06:23
macoreal1adam: there are TWO broadcom drivers06:24
FalseLobsterThat opens nautilus as root but it doesn't open archive manager as root06:24
macoreal1adam: there's a foss one (b43) for which you need to grab the firmware from the windows driver (hardware driver manager will automate this if you have wired connection) and the STA driver which broadcom wrote and is closed source to cover everything that's not covered by the foss one06:24
Emanonyea real1adam plug it in go to System>Administration>Hardware Drivers06:24
EmanonFalseLobster:  now go to wherever the archive is in the root file manager06:25
invurseis anyone familiar with openvpn?06:25
Emanonif you try to open it in file roller from a root nautilus it should force file roller to be root too06:25
FalseLobsterEmanon: yea yea.  That opens nautilus as root, but opening hte archive doesn't open it in root06:25

Tim_Looking for help trying to get an install of 64-bit Ubuntu 10.04 installed.06:32
Tim_I was running 32-bit, but it only booted about half the time, so I tried re-installing with 64-bit.06:32
Meta-007and i am looking to get a tools in ubuntu which will convert EXE file to JPEG06:33
EmanonTim_ if you use the desktop it should be the same as installing 32 bit06:34
Emanonthe desktop install disk i mean06:34
Tim_But it keeps locking up at 3.755576 usb 2-1.1.1 configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice.06:34
LoshkiMeta-007: that's a very odd thing to do. Why do you think you need to do that?06:34
FalseLobsterDoes anyone know how to create a .rpm file ?06:34
Tim_Yeah, I'm running the desktop install disk.06:34
Tim_It's a relatively new laptop, and has a USB 3.0 port that I'm suspecting is causing problems.06:34
Meta-007Loshki, I do not know why but some friend doing this06:35
Emanondoes it have any 2.0's?06:35
Emanonoh are u installing from usb stick?06:35
SpaceGhostC2CI have a web that's 2.006:35
Meta-007Loshki, I need to know what tools they are using to do this in Ubuntu06:35
EmanonMeta-007: are you talking about things like the dangerkitteh toolset?06:36
Tim_Emanon: Yeah, USB 2.0 x2 and USB 3.0 x1. No I'm installing from a CD. I'm just suspecting the USB3 port.06:36
Emanonit might be the disk if you have a usb stick try installing from that (use unetbootin) its way faster06:36
Meta-007Emanon, Dangerktteh?06:36
Emanonand easier on the stash of rw's06:36
gasullHi. How can I add a param initrd=/boot/DSDT.amlto grub?  Thanks.06:37
LoshkiMeta-007: sorry, I don't even know what it would mean to convert an EXE to a JPEG, unless you were trying to get some browser to execute it by mistake. Are there browsers that stupid?06:37
Emanontroll toolkit from /b/06:37
SpaceGhostC2CWhat are we even talking about?06:37
Emanonwell that or hes trying to get msn to allow him to send an exe to a friend06:37
linuxnoobhey, i have a question about aircrack but that channel appears to be dead, anyone have experience with it?06:37
Tim_True. Though I don't htink the install medium is the problem, 32-bit booted inconsistently, so I'm thinking it's a hardware conflict, but the install doesn't chuck any wobblies so to speak.06:37
SpaceGhostC2CEmanon: have whoever you're talking to pack it up in a tarball.06:38
Emanonif you try to send an exe over msn the reciever (if they are on windows) will be forced to scan it06:38
Emanoneven in an archive sometimes06:38
Emanonbut it doesnt usuall scan jpegs if memory serves06:38
Emanoneither that or hes just a blackhat in training oh well06:38
SpaceGhostC2CIs this related to Ubuntu at all?06:39
Emanonidk there may be some other reason to do it06:39
invursevpn anyone?06:40

xdunlapxHi guys. I'm wondering how to install java. There is no sun-java6-plugin available.09:31
undifinedSloth_Demon, the command you ran needs to sudo09:31
erUSUL!java | xdunlapx09:31
ubottuxdunlapx: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java. For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.09:31
xdunlapxthank you09:32
erUSULxdunlapx: you need to eable the partners repository for sun's java.09:32
Sloth_Demonundifined: sorry but I have no idea of what you just said.09:32
undifinedSloth_Demon, your <command>, again sudo <command>09:33
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/fixsudo09:34
xdunlapxerUSUL, thank you yes. that worked :)09:35
jlebrechi think ubuntu should be able to organise files in terms or projects, and you'd be able to attach notes to them.09:36

nolonxhello, I want to install ubuntu 10.04 on my imac, but I don't want to install grub on the MBR. Unfortunately the installer won't accept the root partition as a valid install location. Is it possible to do so?09:46
erUSULAnomie2: does not have a mput or mirror option ?09:46
odb|fidelit's about having a function in an application - not about having a function in a distri or desktop environment09:46
erUSULAnomie2: if it is in the same machibe and you have ssh access why not a symple "cp" on the shell ?09:47
erUSULAnomie2: i thought it was on two machines09:47

MindGrenadeHi all,. Just wondering if anyone can help me with what partitions to make for dual boot windows/ubuntu???10:38
zemanelis it possible to convert a 64bit ubuntu installation to 32bits?10:38
NitzchONotThats for the drives mounted via /etc/fstab by the way (HDDs with NTFS partition)10:39
NitzchONotzemanel, i think thats not possibe ;/10:39
MindGrenadewhats best partitions to use for dual boot with shared partion??? do i make them all NTFS?10:40
tracy69zemanel,  i dont think so too10:40
w0_thanks guyz.  viva ubuntu!!10:40
tracy69MindGrenade,  are you talking about sharing files between ubuntu and windows? if so u will be able easy access win files from ubuntu10:41
tracy69no matter ntfs or fat10:41
MindGrenadei was reading a forum post but was a couple years old... it said to make them all NTFS10:42
MindGrenadeso  can load  the share partition thru both OS10:42
tracy69MindGrenade,  u dont need any extra partition just boot ubuntu go to places computer and your windows files10:42
filipekMindGrenade, what do you exactly mean by "shared partition" like installing Ubuntu on NTFS too?10:43
MindGrenadeim gonna have seperate partion for windows/ubuntu/share drive so if i need to format or change os on a drive it doesnt effect the share drive... *share drive is where ill save all my files so i can open with either os10:43
Vroomfondlefilipek: in the olden days people used to make a third partition, so they'd have one for Windows, one for Linux and the thrid one was a space to put files to be shared between the two10:43

MindGrenadeand what about windows? and Shared Data Patitions?? NTFS? are they all compatible to sharing files?10:46

m4v!root | JohnnyL10:50
ubottuJohnnyL: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo10:50

steve_can anyone tell me the difference between samba and samba411:38
magnetronrizzuh: seems like you need xargs or a bash for loop for the kind of thing you are doing11:39
rwwsteve_: "samba" installs samba 3, "samba4" installs samba 4. There's a separate package for the latter because it isn't yet stable.11:39
rizzuhmagnetron: well I'm not that great at bash scripting xD11:39

xbmcNoobrob_p, yes but not in xbmc session, however, your suggestion seems to be bang on11:51
magnetronjtcc: it's called something similar to "user switcher"11:51
rob_pxbmcNoob: If you haven't yet installed it, a simple, "sudo apt-get install openssh-server" will get installed and running.11:51
xbmcNoobrob_p, how would i start ssh via terminal, just so i get an idea of how to edit the script right11:52

steve_i have Ubuntu 10.04, and when i try to connect to a windows share it asks me for the login, domain and password so i provide the details but i get denied12:42
chullodb|fidel, hmm how can i give him those?12:42
odb|fidelchull: or in other words: use sudo12:42
glebihanstapel, here is a little python script that should handle what you need : http://paste.ubuntu.com/490912/12:43
duffydackchull, did you create the account and allocate it a home folder...12:43
glebihanstapel, you have to pass it the folder as argument12:43
LjLchull: "sudo adduser yourhusbandsname admin" should do it. how did you create the account?12:43
chullodb|fidel, i think i did. i followed directions.12:43
bodwicksteve_ ubuntu and windows are in the same workgroup?12:43
stapelglebihan: yes I know :)12:43
odb|fidelchull: the question is: how was the account created & is that account privileged to use sudo12:43
JuJuBeeikonia never mind, seems it was my proxy.  Weird that it gave me an extermal IP12:43
duffydackoh, I thought she meant not showing the name on logging into gnome.12:43
sipiorstapel: the output is being saved to a file? easiest perhaps to background the clamscan program, and run a while loop using "wc -l" or "nl" to count the lines, and a "sleep" directive to follow. you can test for an exit condition on the clamscan process to terminate the while loop.12:44

glebihanstapel, will this fill your needs ?12:48
stapelglebihan: I am not sure how I am suppose to use it.12:48
glebihanstapel, save it as a python file (.py), and run "python filename.py /path/to/folder"12:49
bodwicksteve_ tried mounting that share using terminal or krusader ?12:49
stapelglebihan: I did that, but how is that different form just running 'clamscan -ir --remmove=yes /folder' in a bash script12:50

chullodb|fidel, possibly12:52
stapelglebihan: yes, but I can achieve that with 'clamscan -ir --remmove=yes /folder | nl'12:52

odb|fidelchull: well as it sound you arent a techi - but a user without administraive rights which is willing to get those ... bad conflict ;)12:54
chullodb|fidel, i'm his mother, does that count? and we paid for the drive too!12:54
odb|fidelchull: and how does that helps any further?12:54
teolicyHow do I choose the 'primary' interface now? Why is the primary interface special? Would editing /etc/network/interfaces and just specifying my interfaces be identical to using that guided configuration tool?12:54
tracy69chull,  whos mother are you ?12:55
odb|fidelits about having no sudo rights & no person around with sudo rights but asking how to get sudo rights - which takes at least some fiddling12:55
chullodb|fidel, somehow glaring at it does not make it look nicely.12:55
ikoniaodb|fidel: just add the user to the "admin" group, then they have sudo rights12:55
teolicy(the answer to that last question is 'no', I edited /etc/network/interfaces and tried both '/etc/init.d/networking restart' and a reboot, my interfaces aren't configured)12:55

sdschulzeJohnHeikkila: what hardware part?13:12
alcyquick one folks, my dad just tried to upgrade to 10.04 LTS (I stay away from home) from 9.10, and the update manager has prompted to ask whether grub should be left as is, or should the package maintainer's version be installed. Just wanted to ask from you folks, if its safe to go either way ? I usually took care of his system, but never did a dist upgrade :P13:12
sdschulzeJohnHeikkila: I watched it screwing it up by opening alsamixer.13:12
JohnHeikkilasdschulze: Click the Audio sign in the notification area, then click preferences13:12
