UbuntuNoobhi everyone so currently none of my windows have the option ot maximize, minimize, or close them and i cant switch between windows from the taskbar at the bottom of my screen. any fixes?00:01
biggestchopsany one here know why a pc would suddenly start to hang on boot at the GRUB loading screen with a flashing cursor?00:01
bitreaderIs there any website or something where I can learn how to install the latest software with trusted repositories? For instance, I'd like to install the newsest vlc player, but for 10.04, the version that's fetching is 1.0.4. VLC is currently at its 1.1.4 version.00:01
Vonorhi, does anyone know if gnome global menu is still continued or if there is a replacement for it? i see the last change on the codebase for global menu was done in june 201000:01
tgp1994good god.00:01
newknoquick question - I heard that Ubuntu can create file systems within NTFS partitions (http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=83312), but the 10.4 installer doesn't provide that option - or else I don't know how to find it.00:01
UbuntuNoobi also cant resize my windows and the corners are sharp and squareish00:02
agentgasmasktgp1994: when I run it now, I get a file selection window to select the xorg.conf file. if running as normal user, I get the gksudo prompt to enter the password, then it just saves. do you get any diferent behavior?00:02
agentgasmaskHi folks! I'm trying to find my way from scratch about sharing Evolution calendars on a LAN. I would prefer not to use the Internet for security purposes. I would like to be able to have one calendar that displays all private (non-exported), and public (exported). Any pointers on where to start?00:02
tgp1994agentgasmask: Do you mean when saving it from the NVIDA X Control Panel? It will just prompt me for my password before I overwrite the config file.00:02
jdawgGUFW Question here for configuring on Lucid Lynx...I can use Remote Desktop with GUFW disabled, but once I enable it and set rules for the one incoming IP address on port 5900 it doesn't function...I'm confused here, any ideas?????00:02
Jp82191How do i get a second drive to be avaliable on startup?00:02
Dingozagentgasmask: Sexxi00:03
macoagentgasmask: you'll need two calendars i think, but you can certainly setup a webdav server on the lan for the public calendar00:03
AviramK Thanks anyway AndrewMC , I'll just give up for now.00:03
AviramGoodnight.00:03
FloodBot3!netsplit00:03
ubottunetsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit00:03
jdawg've sucessfully managed to get vinagre remote desktop working between two ubuntu systems..but as soon as i enable GUFW firewall, it won' work....For the exceptions, how do I allow only one IP address on my network to access the remote machine via port 5900?  I tried putting the ip address in the to and from field and port 5900 for allowing incoming connections and that didn't work...Anybody have advice?00:03
agentgasmasktgp1994: yeah, I'm just trying to see if there is any behavior changes that could lead to the problem...00:03
tgp1994agentgasmask: Thank god for that netsplit.00:03

RanyAlbegsinisterstuf: I see that U'm using compiz as wm. Is there a way to use it to open for example: firefox in desktop number 3 ?00:55
ariqzI was on topic and complaining. I explained my situation, and since I don't know the details, the best way to go about it was not clear to me.  I could 1. spend forever downloading the other deb package, or 2. get the dependency for this one, and I don't know which is the best choice because I don't know what sort of dependency hell I'm running into00:55
needhelpi have tried to install flash already sinisterstut00:55
jribariqz: ask a question, INSTEAD of complaining00:56
ariqzmy complaint had a nested question :) And i'm sick of everything going wrong with ubuntu. it's annoying that I constantly have to mess with nonsense00:56
Paddy_NIneedhelp, Honestly just install restricted extras and you'll be fine00:56
jribariqz: anyway I doubt anyone has any clue what your issue is (I certainly don't).  Take 2 minutes to collect your thoughts and ask your question on ONE line, providing relevant logs, commands, etc. in a pastebin00:57
RanyAlbegALL: I see that U'm using compiz as wm. Is there a way to use it in a script to open for example: firefox in desktop number 3 ?00:57
soreauRanyAlbeg: You can use Place Windows in ccsm to have firefox start on any vp and I think you might be able to do it with wmctrl00:57

jribdoug__: k01:13
doug__jrib,  any ideas? or should i just create the folder but that wont tell gcurser where to look for the themes if i do.01:14
jribdoug__: just create the folder.  I'm assuming you read somewhere they belong there in which case I don't see why you're worried about where gcursor looks01:15
doug__jrib, http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-343748.html01:15
hypnosealHello.  I am attempting to use wget -m to copy an entire site.  However I am not able to get anything before index.html.  Any suggestions?01:16
doug__jrib,  for the themes to work it has to go into that folder which gcurser has to beable to see and use.01:16
sinmanhow would you partition a hdd to dual boot or triple boot 2 or 3 different linux distro? you can send me a private message explaining the setup of the partitions01:16

dwayneI installed 10.04 (32-bit) on a system w/ 10 GB RAM.  The BIOS sees 10 GB, but 'free -mt' shows total mem as 2003.  Is this because its 32-bit?01:18
sinisterstufJp82191: using the GPartEd tool System>Administration>gparted01:18
ralliasJP82191: synaptic look for gparted, install it, then go to system->admin->gparted01:18
sergeant_dwayne, yeah probably'01:18

Jordan_Udwayne: Why did you install 32 bit? For 10 GIG 64 bit really is the way to go.01:22

Viking667Quick question - what program do I need to install to burn a CD from a set of files?01:22
bitreadersinisterstuf, that's exactly what I'm going to install. Yet, I was recommended to do it with the .sh from the netbeans website instead of the ubuntu packages.01:22
sinisterstufJp82191: you can use ext2 for that01:22
jribyaaar: pastebin /etc/hosts01:22
Jordan_UViking667: Brasero comes with Ubuntu, and you can also do it directly from nautilus (the default file manager in Ubuntu).01:23
Jp82191sinisterstuf: and it would be avaliable right after booting?01:23
jo___Hello everybody, I've installed pure-ftpd an configured a virtual account exactly as in the help docs but I still get a 530 Login authentication failed. I did update the database and so on..01:23

Viking667ugh. I didn't see a "Burn to CD" entry in my Nautilus.01:23
Viking667ANd no it's not - I'm just installing it now01:23
ralliashelp01:23
sinisterstufJp82191: um... sure. you might need to add it to the computer's fstab and add a folder on there that is owned you. if that sounds complicated i can help.01:24
Viking667Right. Thanks01:24
ralliaslexmark only offers x86 drivers, but i need an x86-64 driver. Is there some sort of compatibility mode i can force on it?01:24
yaaarjrib: the only change to the default file is one line at the bottom containing "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX host.domain.com"01:24
sinisterstufViking667: odd, what Ubuntu do you have? Mine is installed by default under Sound & Video or something01:25
Jp82191sinisterstuf: i would appreciate the help since I don't know what i'm doing.01:25
Jordan_UViking667: To burn a data CD from nautilus you drag files to the blank CD icon (which only exists when you have a blank CD in the drive).01:25
sinisterstufbitreader: I don't remember what I did. I probably installed it with synaptic, works fine.01:25
Paddy_NIBrasero is part of a default installation01:26
jo___anyone some experiance with pure-ftp?01:26
dwayneJordan_U, I don't have a good answer for that.  The 64-bit discs I made kept ending up corrupted (even burned at the slowest speed on different machines) and I really wanted to get something on the system, so I used what I had (8.10/32-bit) and upgraded to 10.04.  I'm gonna redo it w/ 64-bit.01:26
Paddy_NIunless you use netbook edition01:26

drunkncrewi'm new to conky, just playing around with it at the moment. I've was told to create a .sh file to have my conky script run at startup. The command for running it in the script is ( exec conky -d -c ~/.conkyrc) Could someone tell me what the ( -d -c ) are doing/calling ? "Sorry if this is a double post I just got disconnected"01:55
jribdrunkncrew: conky documentation should say01:56
diverteddrallias, any luck yet?01:56
ralliasdivertedd: this is really old stuff... directx8? That was like 06. Did ubuntu even exist back then?01:56
Andyman555hey guyz01:56
diverteddrallias, boi.. dont ask me..01:56
* Blancmange wonders if the house next door is going to fall over today.01:56
bastidrazordrunkncrew: you don't need a script just add conky -c /path/to/your.conkyrc to Startup Applications01:57
Dwade09guys how do i make my windows 7 see and give my ubuntu partiton /read/write and show all files?01:57

ralliascan u send me the .deb?01:58
drunkncrewbastidrazor: thanks, that's simpler, done. Any ideas to the -d and -c though? I don't need it anymore thanks to you, but still wondering.01:58
Dwade09i followed this guide, http://www.soluvas.com/read-browse-explore-open-ext2-ext3-ext4-partition-filesystem-from-windows-7/ but every folder on my linux side is empty nothing is showing in them.01:58
ralliasdivertedd: with the .deb file I can modify a small bit to work for your computer.01:58
ralliasi think01:59
serithey guys  guess what   my usb drive is dead01:59
bastidrazordrunkncrew: i think the -d is shorthand for an IF statement .. but unsure.01:59

rwwCaneToad: try ~/Downloads or ~/Public02:11
CaneToadhmm it is in ~02:11
ralliasserit: all data is gone02:11
Dr_WillisCaneToad:  yes. it would be in the users home somwehere.. /tmp and /media - would not make sence02:11
CaneToadthanks folks02:11
Dr_WillisCaneToad:  i was thinking the bluetooth applet had a menu for settings to where to save things to02:12
Dr_Willisbut I have no BT on this box. so i cant double check right now02:12
ralliasDr_Willis: How do i re-pack the .deb?02:12
seritrallias: ok but will it be usable in  windows?02:12
ralliasserit: yes. Just select fat or fat32 or ntfs02:13
Dr_Willisrallias:  Never needed to. last time i needed to alter the contents of a .deb  i used 'mc' to browse the contents and add/edit/remove things02:13

axisyshow do I find file from older than a yr 2009 ?02:15
ralliasaxisys: what file?02:15
axisysfind /dir -type f -mtime +365 wont really work02:16
seritrallias: so I should just refomat it02:16
axisysrallias: ^02:16
ralliasserit: if there isn't any important data02:16
axisysrallias: so basically i need help with `find' .. to find files that are older than yr 2009 ?02:17
ralliasaxisys: there haven't been more then 365 days this year yet... try find /dir -type f -mtime +200d02:17
arrrghhhhey all.  i'd like to fill my SD card with random music - all the music is in a central location, what's the best way to do it?02:17
Doyleaxisys:  if you know part of the name you can do a 'locate *partname*.*'  if that returns too much you can grep it, or use cat if you know part of the contents of hte file.. could take a while though02:17
ralliasarrrghhh: drag and drop02:17
Vonoraxisys,        -mtime n02:17
Vonor              File's data was last modified n*24 hours ago.  See the  comments02:17
Vonor              for -atime to understand how rounding affects the interpretation02:17
Vonor              of file modification times.02:17
FloodBot1Vonor: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.02:17
axisysrallias: looking for a way to ask in a more specific way02:17
arrrghhhrallias, uhm... that wouldn't work at all.  i have 100+gb of music and an 8gb sd card...02:18
divertedsuppose i hit ctrl alt f2... how do i get away from that screen??02:18
axisysVonor: i know.. but i dont want to count.. if i can avoid it.. i like to ask give me all files older than yr 2009 ..02:18
ralliasarrrghhh: how?02:18
seritrallias: well Its a second drive02:18
sinisterstufdiverted: press ctrl alt F7 to get back to the graphical terminal02:18
arrrghhhrallias, i wouldn't get very _random_ selection of music then would i...02:18
divertedsinisterstuf, thank you!02:18
Doylediverted: ctrl alt F1 to F6 are all tty terminals, F7 is your x session02:18
sinisterstufdiverted: you're welcome02:19
Dr_Willisdiverted:  the f1 -6 keys go to the console 1-6 NORMALLY X is running on '7' but ive seen it also run on 8 or 9 or hither.02:19
axisysDoyle: i know that.. but i think find can be used to ask a question of get me all files older than 200902:19
Doyleaxisys: ah, you said 'a' file02:19
sinisterstufdiverted: there are seven virtual terminals, usually info about what's gone on during boot and so on is in tty1 and the x server is started in tty702:19
divertedand how do i log in there? i never set a password other than my sudo.. but this one wasnt accepted02:20
dsnydersHi all!  I have a bootable floppy image that I want to expand from 1.44M to 2.88M while preserving its bootablility.  How do I do this?02:20

seritrallias: thanks for that information02:21
Blue1i am getting some errors trying to install webmin (package dependancy) errors here:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/491342/  what is easiest way to fix this?02:22
divertedcan someone with a lot of patience help me install a program?02:23
IdleOne!webmin02:23
ubottuwebmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. See !ebox instead.02:23
dsnydersI tried loop mounting floppy.img and then using gparted on /mnt, but that didn't seem to work.02:23
axisysDoyle: i rather not count the days.. so I can run it any day02:23
Doyleaxisys: google date calculator, it'll count the days between specific dates02:24
divertedthe program comes in tar.gz but i dont know how to run it02:24
Doyleaxisys: if you want something that you can run daily without modification you'll have to write a bash script.02:24
dsnydersdiverted: you need to extract the program from the tar.gz file.  tar -zxf tarname.tar.gz02:25
diverteddsnyders, i already did that. i put it into /usr/local/src02:25
SuperMiguelwhats the best program to test my ssd read/write  speed?02:25

dk12548how to install jdk in ubuntu?02:26
poseidondk12548: check the wiki02:26
Blue1Blancmange: maybe you should update to 10.04 that is over 2 years old.02:27
dsnydersdiverted: It's been a while.  I usually apt-get install things.  What is the program?02:27
diverteddsnyders, its nothing from official repositories02:27
Blue1anyone know how to fix package dependancy problems?02:28
diverteddsnyders, i got it from that link: http://draves.org/bomb/bomb-1.26.tar.gz02:28
arrrghhhmaybe songbird does it... i was hoping for a command i could pass that would fill my card with random music awesomness...02:28
diverteddsnyders, if i navigate into the extracted folder and type "checkinstall" i only get some basic text02:28
=== oracle_ is now known as oracle
BlancmangeBlue1: I intend to try that, but I prefer to use a tried and tested system. 10.4 was a mess when it first came out and it's only recently been stabilised.02:29
dsnydersdiverted: is there a file called bomb in the folder?02:30
=== f23 is now known as Wolf23
Blue1Blancmange: YMMV applies02:30
diverteddsnyders, wohooo i think i got it!!02:30
Dwade09ok guys i have an issue on my windows partiton and ubuntu partition,  im on ubuntu i can read/write /open files on my ntfs, but on my windows 7 i can not read/write/open files on my ubuntu partition, i have tried several readers and some do work where i can actually see the folders but there is nothing in the folders they are empty anyone got any other ideas? if my ubuntu was ext 3 or ext 2 i could read/write to them but its ext 402:30
BlancmangeI've backed up the machine anyway, so I guess I can afford to try reinstalling OSSs/distros until I  find one that works (and can open web pages from apps).02:31
diverteddsnyders, i got the deb file now and i already installed it!02:31
arrrghhhDwade09, it's best to just share stuff on the NTFS side.... your windows partition.  just create a shortcut on the desktop to your windows desktop or something.02:31
diverteddsnyders, but what next? how do i execute it?02:31
* Blancmange goes for the nuclear option and tries 10.04...02:32
Dwade09arrrghhh,  make a shared folder i keep the data in that the linux and windows can both see and share? with read/write/use?02:32
dsnydersdiverted: not sure.  is there a file called bomb in the folder?02:32
snlemonsHi, folks. Does anyone know the status of EFI support (for my MacBook Pro) with Karmic? The page on MacTel EFI support hasn't been updated in over a year and I couldn't find any other similar resources.02:32
xenoxaosHas anyone had any luck at rebuilding ACPI/DSDT tables for a laptop in Ubuntu?02:32
arrrghhhDwade09, you don't want windows writing to your linux partitions, TRUST ME on that one.02:32
EndEngubuntu 10.04 -- why is it reporting blank dvd -r as 1.4 gb02:33
diverteddsnyders, yes but when i click on it nothing happens02:33
Dwade09arrrghhh,  then how do i do it where they can share the same stuff and both can read/write to it and use it inside that folder?02:33
arrrghhhDwade09, but yes, you can create a shortcut to your windows desktop or something like that on your ubuntu desktop then you have a location both sides can see/access/write.02:33
diverteddsnyders, if i run "sudo bomb" in terminal i get: bomb: error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory02:33
Dwade09arrrghhh,  how do i do that?02:34
arrrghhhDwade09, or you can do a bind mount, but that's kinda overkill.02:34
snlemonsDwade09: I usually make a FAT32 partition to store data and such in and keep Win/Lin install space from ever directly touching each other.02:34
arrrghhhDwade09, do you know how to find the windows drive in the 'places' menu?02:34
divertedwhats the next step after i executed a .deb file?02:34
Dwade09snlemons,  i would but space is limited for a fat32 partition.02:34
divertedhow do i run the program?02:34
arrrghhhsnlemons, fat32 is awful.  what if he has a file over 4gb?02:34
Dwade09arrrghhh,  im not in ubuntu i am in windows right now.02:34
arrrghhhDwade09, :D  boot back to ubuntu please!02:35
Dwade09arrrghhh,  ok brb02:35
snlemonsarrrghhh: Well, when they make proper EXT support for Windows or proper NTFS support for Linux, I'll use one of those. But every time I've tried one or the other it's been SUPER buggy.02:35
AegNuddelI am having an issue with startup disk creator02:35
Dr_Willisdiverted:  you install the deb..  then type the name of whatever program/binaries it installed to run them from teh command line02:35
arrrghhhsnlemons, the only issue i had with accessing ntfs on linux was processor overhead...02:36
AegNuddelIt will not detect my dvd writer.  It was at first02:36
AegNuddelbut then I tried to make sure I had the right disk selected and it disappeared02:36
arrrghhhdiverted, what did you install?  sometimes it'll place an icon in your applications menu, but not always...02:36
ilumiany better alternatives to empathy?02:36
snlemonsarrrghhh: I got a lot of read/write errors when I last used it. That scared me off pretty well.02:37
divertedDr_Willis, so the program is called "bomb", i type bomb but i get: bomb: error while loading shared libraries: libpng.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory02:37
arrrghhhsnlemons, ...when did you last use it?02:37
Dr_Willisdiverted:  looks like some of the support libs it wants are not installed.02:37
serithey so In not in ubuntu?02:37
divertedDr_Willis, how do i find out what libraries i need?02:37
doug__arrrghhh,  ok im in linux now what?02:37
snlemonsarrrghhh: 6 months or a year ago. So maybe things have changed, but I doubt much in that time range.02:37
rezbitDid Ubuntu ship the new driver that hangs several intel graphics chips?02:37
arrrghhhdoug__, ok, do you know how to access your windows hard drive from ubuntu?02:38
AegNuddeloh wait maybe it was detecting my sd card02:38
Dr_Willisdiverted:  I have to wonder why installign the deb did not pull them in.  Could be its a different version in ubuntu and thats the issue02:38
Dr_Willis!info libpng02:38
ubottuPackage libpng does not exist in lucid02:38
divertedDr_Willis, libpng.so.2 is the library i need?02:38
doug__arrrghhh, gah yeah but it should auto mount02:38
Dr_Willisdiverted:  yes. libpng02:38
arrrghhhsnlemons, huh.  i used it probably 8 months ago maybe - heavily.  the processor overhead bugged me.02:38
Dr_Willis!find libpng.so02:38
AegNuddelit was02:38
ubottuFile libpng.so found in compiz-dbg, compiz-plugins, ia32-libs, libpng12-dev, libpng302:38
dsnydersHi all!  How do I resize a floppy image?02:38
divertedDr_Willis, well can i get it manually somehow?02:38
arrrghhhdoug__, you'll have to add an entry in /etc/fstab if you want it to automount... it should mount if you click it from the 'places' menu tho...02:38
Dr_Willisdiverted:  the bot just stated its in the libpng3 package.02:38
=== MrUnagi_ is now known as MrUnagi
divertedDr_Willis, how do i install that library?02:39
Vonoraxisys, ping?02:39
Dr_Willisdiverted:  install  the libpng3 package.02:39
doug__arrrghhh,  ok its mounted02:39
rambo2_981manually edited sources.list to move to a more recent debian repo (lenny); major problems. changed sources back to sarge but there is something out of sync. how can i repopulate the database, even if i have to reload all pkgs?02:39
arrrghhhdoug__, but, you should add an fstab entry if you want it to be there on bootup (which i would recommend)02:39
divertedDr_Willis, umm yea im willing to do so.. but how?02:39
kcormierHi all.  How can I get rid of all entries from nautilus when I right click on the desktop?  (I want it to function normally everywhere else, just not on the desktop)02:39
seritwell ok then02:40
divertedDr_Willis, sudo apt-get libpng3 ?02:40
FrozenFire[work]How do I go about disabling a network adapter, such that NetworkManager does not attempt to connect using it on startup?02:40
doug__hmm seems i need a vid driver too02:40
Dr_Willisdiverted:  via the package manager tools you like to use.. are you trying to do some 'advanced' stuff befor learning the fundamentals of the package manager system?02:40
arrrghhhdoug__, ok.  now it's up to you where you want to share.  i'd put a folder on your windows desktop, so navigate to that, and create a new folder called 'Ubuntu share' or whatever.02:40
AegNuddelWhy won't the startup disk creator detect the dvd?02:40
Dr_Willisdiverted:  sudo apt-get install whatever02:40

Soyoexit02:41
divertedDr_Willis, E: Couldn't find package libping302:41
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  could be a link in /dev/XXXX is wrong. like /dev/cdrom /dev/dvd02:41
Vonoraxisys, a quick and dirty hack...I am sure it is possible to do it WAY more elegant than this, but it does work: for FILE in $(find /home -type f) ; do if [ $(ls -l $FILE | awk '{print $8}') -le 2009 ]; then echo $FILE; fi; done 2>/dev/null02:41
AegNuddelthe folder shows02:41
Dr_Willisdiverted:  spell it properly02:41
divertedDr_Willis, yea just figured02:41
doug__ok arrrghhh made a folder called shared02:41
AegNuddelDr_Willis, how do I check it?  Nautilus is detecting it fine btw02:42
rambo2_981any apt experts? i need to fall back to a prior version from lenny to sarge; how can i force apt to do this?02:42
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  I normally use ISO image files. ive rarely used a optical disk. run the tool from the command line, perhaops it will show an error message. see what /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are linked to02:43
dsnydersHi all!  How do I expand a floppy image?02:43
xanguarambo2_981: this is #ubuntu, not #debian02:43
divertedis anyone familiar with libpng.so.2 ?02:43
Dr_Willisdsnyders:  expand it to what?02:43
AegNuddelDr_Willis, what tool do you mean?02:43
git__anyone have issue with their usb mouse in ubuntu 10.04?02:43
divertedi need it for a program but its not included in libpng302:43
rambo2_981xangua, as if ubuntu has no relation to debian whatsoever?02:43
git__usb is still unstable02:43
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  the usb-disk-creator tool or whatever its binary is called02:43
dsnydersDr_Willis: I have a 1.44M boot floppy image and I would like to expand it to 2.88M02:44
AegNuddelI don't know the binary name02:44
greezmunkeygit__: works fine here02:44
Dr_Willisdiverted:  the program may been compiled to use an older version of the Lib. You may need to recompile from source to use the newer. or track down the older lib and install it.02:44
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  using TAB completion - it seems to be usb-creator-gtk02:45
greezmunkeydsnyders: don't you have to have a special drive for a 2.88 flop ?02:45
Dr_Willisdsnyders:  easy way would be to make a 2.88 flippy image. and mount the image, and your old disk image, and copy the files over.02:46
dsnydersgreezmunkey: this is going to be used as a PXE boot option.02:46
AegNuddelok that opens it02:46
Dr_Willisbut ive not used floppys or floppy images in years.. so i cant recall the commands to make them02:46
AegNuddelbut how do I find out the links?02:46
mobasherDr_Willis>> lol geezz havnen't seen in ages lol02:46
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  ls -l /dev/cdrom (or dvd, or dvdrw) or whatever its trying to use02:46
dsnydersDr_Willis: copying the files will not preserve the bootablility, will it?  I thought certain files needed to be in certain sectors.02:47
greezmunkeydsnyders: see if this helps: http://syslinux.zytor.com/wiki/index.php/DOS_floppy_images02:47
Dr_Willismobasher:  last floppy i saw was IN a pc.. literally.. it was in the case. with no access..  with a floppy disk in it. must of been in there for years..02:47
dsnydersgreezmunkey: thanks.  I'll take a gander02:47
mobasherDr_Willis>> lmao...i know what you mean i must have one of those in my basement somewhere02:47
greezmunkeydsnyders: don't bother, mostly DOS info!!02:48
AegNuddelDr_Willis, notihng is happening.  Only nautilus seems to detect it02:48
AegNuddelAlso do you know if Ubuntu will boot from an SD Card?02:49
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  with sd cards.. its often the PC/bios that can or can not boot from SD card. My old Netbook could NOT boot from SD.02:49
git__ubuntu boots from usb fine02:49
AegNuddelok02:49
greezmunkeydsnyders: check this out! http://www.linux-boot.net/Boot/FD/02:49
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  theres also ways to use grub2 and setup a usb device to boot an iso image. :) thats what ive been doing lately02:50
AegNuddelIs there another way to write the ISO to the DVD?02:50
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  clarify what you are doing exactly....02:50
AegNuddelWriting the ISO for Ubuntu to a DVD02:50
divertedwhat does "sudo ln ......." do?02:50
Vonordiverted, execute the ln command as root02:51
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  you are burning a cd iso file.. to a blank DVD.. You would not use the usb-disk-creator tool for that..02:51
divertedVonor, what does the ln command do then?02:51
AegNuddelDr_Willis, it just said create startup disk02:51
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  you normally right click on the iso, and select burn, or use brasero, or k3b or some other burning app to write a image to a optical disk02:51
Vonor       ln - make links between files02:51
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  it means create a USB boot startup disk.02:51
divertedah thanks02:51
bobboauok, so I have a computer sitting infront of me that consists of a mobo, a cpu, a graphics card and a cd drive, I had two tuner cards in it and a hard drive with mythbuntu installed, but for some reason, shortly after this I can no longer boot the damned thing, the live CDs no longer have the recovery option so I have little to go on as to why this is happening.02:51
Vonordiverted, man ln for more information :)02:51
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  not an optical disk02:51
AegNuddelDr_Willis, thanks02:52
VonorAegNuddel, cdrecord file.iso02:52
Dr_WillisI thought just doukle clicking on an iso alwo brought up the disk burner program02:52
AegNuddelIf I drag it to Nautilus, will it write what is in the iso or actually put the iso on the disk as a whole?02:53
dsnydersgreezmunkey: thanks.  I am actually looking to create a  DOS bootable floppy image.02:54
Dr_WillisAegNuddel:  USE a 'burner' application.  such as brasero, or k3b. or others.. Right click on the ISO - see if theres a Burn/write to disk option02:54
snlemonsDoes anyone know the status of EFI support (so I don't have to maintain multiple partitions and OSes on my MacBook Pro)? The only page I can find that explicitly discusses it basically said it was only partially supported and that page hasn't been updated in a year.02:54

Dr_Willisariqz:  it totally depemndsd on the codec of the wmv file.02:57
Dr_Willisariqz:  theres also some 'malware' wmv codecs. that you dont want. :)02:58
AegNuddelok it's going02:58
AegNuddelwas just confused02:58
ariqzhttp://packages.medibuntu.org/pool/non-free/w/w32codecs/ I got it from there, Dr_Willis02:58
mobasherariqz>> download and install VLC02:58
Dr_Willisariqz:  its more about the codec of the wmv.. not where you got the w32codecs package from02:59
Dr_Willis'its all about the codec' not the extension.02:59
ariqzDr_Willis, the wmvs played fine in 8.0402:59
Dr_Willisariqz:  try some otehr players then perhaps.02:59
ariqzDr_Willis, it is only now that I have 10.04 that nothing works right02:59
mobasherariqz>> you will find it in the synaptic02:59
Wolf23how can i restart firefox?03:00
ariqzI shouldn't have to fucking get VLC to play a wmv. Christ, ubuntu is terrible03:00
incognitoI installed open office base with synaptic, and it won't launch. Anyone have an idea what is the problem?03:00
Dr_Willisariqz:  determine the codec its using perhaps with ffprobe, or run it in vlc from a terminal, and look for info, or check the properties dialogs.03:00
* Dr_Willis sends ariqz the bill03:00
mobasherlmao...what a dumb looser..what's such a big deal about playing wmv..lmao03:01
Dr_Willis'wmv = let it be'  'friends dont let friends use wmv's'03:01
Dr_Willisevery wmv ive seen people wanting to play are either porn, or worse.03:01

incognitoandyBB of course I'm not interested in that.03:07
serithey can you let me into ubuntu?03:07
andyBBmobasher: yes, ssh is open on the machine - not a port issue03:07
mobasherWolf23>> type "firefox"03:08
andyBBmobasher: It can be connected to on the local network but not over the internet - you can see that it's some ssh config issue03:08
dsnydersgreezmunkey: Okay, here's what I did (because my windows box doesn't have a floppy):   dd if=/dev/fd0 of=floppy.img.  Then I copied floppy.img to my windows box and opened it with a program called winimage.  Winimage has a change format tool.  I changed the format to 2.88, and copied the image back to the linux box.03:08

mobasherWolf23>> just close firefox and restart what's the big deal...or you want to kill the current process and ?03:10
incognitotom_ how long has your system been up03:11
serityou must drink and pizzza03:11
tom_incognito: not long ...03:11

mobasherif you want to kill the process of firefox so you can restart " ps -ef | grep firefox " get the PID assosciated with it and kill it using "kill PID"03:12
incognitotom_ did it ever work?03:12
tom_incogito: sometimes it runs for couple of days03:12
Rockjtom_: try a live cd, see if the same happens. if it does, it sounds like hardware issues.03:12
andyBBhi, i'm having an issue sshing to my machine, seems like an ssh config problem http://pastebin.com/3KG3vWmb03:12
serityou must drink beer and pizzza!!03:12
tom_incognito: debian works, windows works, ubuntu doesn't work03:12
incognitotom_ I'm wondering if you have a hardware compatability issue03:13
serithey can you let me into ubuntu?03:13
incognitotom_ so I want to find out if there was any period of time when the system worked.03:13
tom_incognito: not ubuntu 10.4 ... ubuntu 10.4 never worked properly.  Other distros did ...03:13
AndrewMCserit: what do you mean?03:14
incognitotom_did previous versions of ubuntu work/03:14
tom_incognito: it is definitely a kernel/driver issue ... but I just don't know how to increase kernel's verbosity03:14
incognitotom_ well I can't help you there03:14
tom_incognito: yeah, like 8.x or even 7.x ...03:14
seritAndrewMC: can I join ubuuntu03:15
Rockjtom_: try installing an older kernel that is available in the repos maybe? see if that works?03:15
tom_Rockj: that's a good idea ...03:15
xanguaserit: what exactly are you looking for¿03:15
Rockjtom_: my best bet would be for you to file a bug if a older kernel is working and get kernel hackers to help you debug.03:15
incognitotom_ I had a similar problem with 10.0403:15
tom_incognito, Rockj: do you guys also know why does md5sum returns different checksum on my machine when I run it on exactly the same file?03:15
Rockjtom_: tbh, for me that sounds like bad memory/cpu.03:16
tom_Rockj: I did run the memtest86 over night and it didn't find any issues03:16
Rockjtried running memtest86 for 12hours?03:16
Rockjhm03:16
incognitotom_ that sounds more like a problem with the processor, or memory like Rockj says03:17
RockjNo weird messages in /var/log/kern.log and dmesg etc?03:17
tom_nope ...03:17
tom_some of the crashes indicate stack crashes03:17
tom_some of the other crashes indicated a fight between amd and nvidia03:17
Rockjyou got stack crashes?03:17
tom_i have ati on board, and nvidia as discrete03:17
tom_Rockj: I did ... i even went to see the code, and it looked fine03:17
tom_Rockj: sorry, may be I am wrong about stack crash ...03:18
RockjYou could have some hardware issues with newer kernels or something. I'd have to say this is kinda out of my league, as my guess would defently be hw-issue03:18
tom_Rockj: i got call traces, I can't recall for sure if i got stack crashes03:18
seritxangua: for laptop help03:18
Rockjbut then again, you said it working with other distroes which again points me back to your hardware might have issues with newest kernels03:19
tom_it is hw issue ...03:19
doug__hey guys awhile ago my video screen the whole thing jut flickered all over and was really tiny lines but very noticable. how do i fix this?03:19
tom_yep03:19
Rockjanyway, try a older kernel, figure out where the "change" and bugs start to happen tom_03:19
tom_Rockj: how do I get the older kernel, do I need to compile it myself, or simply get it from repository?03:19
incognitotom_ did you look at the Release notes?03:20
xanguaserit: then just make your question03:20
Rockjtom_: then I would file abug and mention this. kernel devs then can do fancy bisecting to see what changes has been applied between those versions03:20
tom_incognito: nope03:20
tom_ok, i'll do ...03:20
Rockjtom_: apt-cache search linux-image   , lists a few different versions of kernels available in ubuntu03:20
incognitotom_ you should check that out03:20
tom_I'll actually install the 9.10 and see if it is there ... need it for CUDA anyway03:20
tom_Rockj: thanks ... I'll just use the synapsys manager03:21

tom_incognito: yeah, done that many times ... never really debugged though03:25
incognitotom_ I guess you got your work cut out for you.03:26
tom_hehe ...03:26
Rockjtom_: don't really need to "debug", you just want to see when your system starts to be stable. Only problem with going backwards in kernel revisions ....is if ubuntu 10.04 depends on functionality in newer kernels, but I doubt it tbh03:26
tom_alright, i'll do it manyally03:26

incognitodaddysmut just do a dual boot and compare them, but Ubuntu is definitely better03:38
daddysmutincognito: will try both yes, what makes you feel ubuntu a better distro ?03:39
teolicyHi. I've made a minor mistake in /etc/fstab (edited one of my _data_, not root, filesystems' entry, and used the whole device (/dev/sdX) rather than the partition (/dev/sdX1)). Now as my server boots, mountall shouts about being unable to mount the filesystem (understandably); but the server is hung, I get no prompt on the console, and I get no ssh. What gives?03:39
seritok lets see then03:39
incognitodaddysmut do a dual boot with three partitions and share the home folder, or run ubuntu base and fedora in a virtual machine or visa versa03:39

incognitoRockj I guess I'll have to go to Micro$hi# to do my db diagrams for now. Maybe I'll try it on my 8.04 server install.03:46
xjkxlulu7: yes03:46
DulakAegNuddel: it will by default check every filesystem03:46
AegNuddelDulak, all it said was fsck 1.41.4(27-Jan-2009)03:46
xjkxlulu7: wait, no, they moved, but gave some error messages03:46
asymptoteis there a logfile for vino-server to see what ip address is logging into my machine?03:46
lulu7xjkx: Mine did the same but still moved the files. I am not sure how to prevent the message but the feature worked03:47
DulakAegNuddel: what version of ubuntu is this?03:47
xjkxlulu7: my fear is that it cause something bad, as . is also used to refer to the previous folder, but i tried with a sample folder and it worked fine, at least as far as i can see, you don't think it messes with files do you ?03:47

IzinucsPresuntoRJ: surial ubottu is a bot04:35
ilovefairuz!brain | surial04:35
ubottusurial: Hi! I'm ubottu's favorite infobot, you can search my brain yourself at http://ubottu.com/factoids.cgi | Usage info: http://ubottu.com/devel/wiki/Plugins | Bot channels and general info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Bots04:35
surialPresuntoRJ: It's late :P04:35
moodydejavou42: no, for chatting on my domain via google04:36
PresuntoRJilovefairuz: which means, its a software... :D04:36
dejavou42moody: gotcha, thanks!04:36
moodydejavou42: you got it?04:36
ilovefairuzPresuntoRJ: that's degrading! ubottu is not merely a piece of code! haha04:36
dejavou42moody: I got it working under google talk04:37
moodydejavou42: create a new jabber account, login user@yourdomain.com with your password04:37
PresuntoRJsurial: to your /etc/apt/sources.list , add (or uncomment if its there) the line: deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu lucid partner  (assuming you are using 10.04)04:37
moodydejavou42: advanced > encryption required (TLS/SSL) & ignore ssl certificate errors, server: talk.google.com port: 522204:37
PresuntoRJsurial: than $ sudo apt-get update04:37
surialWell, sun-java6-jdk installs less packages, but is still shooting for x11-common. But that's probably okay; even in headless mode you can e.g. render images and the like, I would need some font dbs for that.04:37
PresuntoRJsurial: some new packages might be available, including sun-java6 ones04:38
dejavou42moody: as a google talk account. I just had to create a gmail address to go along side my regular e-mail address04:38
ilovefairuzsurial: it's swing04:38
moodydejavou42: cool :)04:39
surialWell, yes, I get that. I don't need it though. In fact, -Djava.awt.headless=true is rather extreme, it'll also stop you from using java.awt or javax.swing classes to for example convert a jpg to a png, purely in memory. So in theory there's no need even for x11-common.04:39
PresuntoRJ!partner | surial04:39
ubottusurial: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »04:39

erdnaseilovefairuz, Yeah, and I'm like. wth. >_>04:58
erdnaseilovefairuz, I don't think I can brute force a windows encryption, not with todays computers, I think. I hope I can.04:59
surialD'oh. I'm an idiot - did some apt-get work on a remote server without using screen and the connection crapped out. Is that bad?04:59
ilovefairuzerdnase: no you can't, unless you're SETI or the NSA04:59

jellowerdnase: Does not sound hopeful then , sorry to say05:02

VampHello all.06:32
richardcavellHi folks.  I'm running Ubuntu Lucid inside VirtualBox on OS X.  It's running on a virtual hard disk image.  I recently changed the boot hard disk image in order to increase its size.  The old hard disk image was a SATA image.  The new one is IDE.  I didn't do that deliberately - I was just following instructions.  Now when Ubuntu boots, it gives me the message: drive for UUID=xxxx is not ready yet or not... (wraps off end of screen) belo06:32

iflemarichardcavell the old swap partition uuid??06:34
richardcavelliflema: Ah, now that could be it.  What I did was I increased the size of the Ubuntu partition and I deleted the old swap partition and made a new one06:34
iflemarichardcavell fstab may still be looking for theold one.....06:35
Emanonsok it never detects my swap partition on boot but it always uses it fine anyways06:35
Emanonit just takes a lil bit to initialize it06:35
Emanonand im running native06:35
richardcavellAll I did was create a partition within gparted of type 'linux-swap' and I labelled it 'Swap'06:35
VampI'll be back.06:36
Emanonyea my swap is on an encrypted lvm so that might be it for me06:36
richardcavellI just looked at /etc/fstab and sure enough it has the old UUID and some text that tells me it's looking for the old swap partition06:37
richardcavellCan I just delete that line in fstab?06:37
Emanonso any ideas why facebook doesnt work in gwibber?06:37
richardcavellShould I put in the new swap partition, or can Ubuntu find it and use it anyway?06:37
iflemarichardcavell the system will go with whats infstab i belive.... ina terminal use thecommand   free    and see if is swap is being used06:38
iShawnWVamp: I was messing around in another channel06:39

icerootliam: or "which programname"06:43
Emanonthey allow it to disregard the /dev/sd* designation06:43
bsmith093Emanon: seriously though why?06:43
Emanonand look for a drive based on an address only it will have no matter where it is plugged in06:43
bsmith093but thats so much easier to remember that 4389479380djgjirih7895974306:43
liamiceroot: i didnt install it using package manager. I installed it using a .sh file06:44
Emanonso if i have /boot on a removable drive (which i do) i can plug it in anywhere and it will work06:44
incognito_liam what program did you install06:44
liamincognito_: netbeans06:44
Emanonsince it doesnt look for the normal port designated or time of insertion designated address06:44
Emanonbut the unique identifying number of THAT DEVICE06:44
Emanonalso means you can more easily use a portable filesystem (like a full install on a usb drive)06:45
incognitoliam are you a programmer, are you familiar with linux ubuntu?06:45
goddarddid ubuntu do something to the system menu? I don't have my shut down menu item any more06:46

Emanoneven .sh's respect that06:47
Emanonand next time dont just make, install06:48
Emanonmake, checkinstall (slashdot says its cool)06:48
incognitoliam type "whereis netbeans" in the command line without the quotes, and it will show you where netbeans is.06:48
Emanonor install netbeans from the repo06:48
Flannelliam: If you installed it with something outside of a package manager, it *should* be installed to /usr/local/bin (with its support files being elsewhere in /usr/local/*) or to /opt/*06:48
liamenanon: /usr/bin hasnt got any dirs06:48
qdbsolved should be in apt conf06:48
Emanonit wouldnt be a directory it would be an executable liam06:49
Emanonthe directory would be in /usr/lib with the rest of the library files06:49
incognitoliam then if you are willing to search with your file manager you might be able to find the program. I've done it that way before, but it can be tedious06:49
surialInstalling either sun-java6-jdk or openjdk-6-jdk will completely hang the server on update-alternatives: using /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/jexec to provide /usr/bin/jexec (jexec) in auto mode. When I attempt to SSH in, it'll get as far as "connection established" and just freeze there. Anyone have an idea what could be causing this?06:49

Besogongood morning guys. How can I connect to Personal File Sharing using Windows? What folder should I connect to?06:49

Kane_hartanyone ever had a strange issue with say backup.sh script that backup a folder and zipps it if you do ./backup.sh works great then when you have it in a cron job it does not back it all up right only like 300kb while doing the real ./backup does like 15mb07:24
gasullmobasher> can't find any of those files in /media/myboot/grub07:24
naser67hi,there07:24
MindVirusetherealite: That would sound great but I'm not connected to the Internet.07:24
MindVirusNo USB drives.07:24
kneauxsacarlson: i'm still trying to figure out how to connect remotely to a server i have on a lan where every machine has the same ip07:24
kneauxi.e. they have local ips but to the internet they're the same07:25
naser67i've installed php5 on /etc07:25
mobashergasull>> what's in the grub ?07:25
MindVirusWait, what the fuck?07:25
Emanonport forwarding kneaux07:25
MindVirusI guess I am connected.07:25
MindVirusBut to "".07:25
naser67if i wanna reinstall ubuntu the php5 folder will deleted?07:25
Emanonmake all connections on a certain port of the router forward to a certain internal ip07:26
gasullmobasher: http://pastebin.com/KeQADRhd07:26
kneauxemanon i'm not sure my switch does that actually07:26
kneauxis that the only way07:26
Emanonits fairly simple thats how i manage my subsonic server from outside my lan07:26
etherealiteMindVirus when you type iwconfig it should say ESSID:"your network name"  ### if it doesn't then your wireless isnt associated07:26
kneauxemanon: are you on a router or a switch07:26
Emanonrouter sorry07:26
MindVirusetherealite: It does. It says 'ESSID:""'.07:26
mobashergasull>> that's wierd...did you isntall grub  like apt-get install grub07:26
MindVirus"Link Quality=10/100".07:27
gasullmobasher: http://pastebin.com/DxxBtY6e07:27
gary_inNYCkneaux try ddns?07:27
etherealiteMindVirus ESSID what? tell me what the essid is.07:27
kneaux(<rant> fscking office max is going to charge me a 15% "restocking" fee if i have to return it due to their total inability to tell me what device i needed </rant>)07:27
Emanondo you log into the switch like a router? or you just plug it in and leave it be?07:27
MindVirusetherealite: "".07:27
sacarlsonkneaux: again they don't have the same ip they are just on the same local ip mask.  to come in remote from outside that local network you will need to add nat forwarding settings you your router.07:27
chosenhey guys i just created a lamp server and installed phpmyadmin but im trying to access local host on chrom and its saying permission denied i dont have access07:27
etherealiteMindVirus your not associated with your wireless ap then07:27
gasullmobasher: can it be because I have my hard drive encrypted with LUKS:07:27
gasull?07:27
etherealiteMindVirus re associate and see what happens07:28
MindVirusetherealite: I know, and I tried to associate with it.07:28
kneauxemanon: i haven't been able to figure out how to connect to the switch yet, d-link's support is...not07:28
kneauxsacarlson: again, switch, not a router, i'm not sure it's terribly configurable07:28
kneauxgary_innyc: lemme look up ddns07:28
etherealiteMindVirus are you using wep or wpa?07:28
Emanontry 192.168.1.1 in a web browser kneaux everyone likes that address07:28
MindVirusetherealite: WPA.07:28
kneauxemanon: i know, right? everybody but dlink :\07:28
Emanonwhats your switch model?07:29
etherealiteMindVirus and you typed in the right password and all07:29
MindVirus.Oh my goodness! It connected.07:29
mobashergasull>> not sure man..never done it with encyption...check with chownmount see if he can help not too familiar with it07:29
Emanond-link XXXXXXXX07:29
MindVirusI don't know what you did but it worked. Thanks etherealite.07:29
sacarlsonkneaux: some switches are smart like cisco but most people use simple auto detect switches that just detect the mac address of each device that plugs in.07:29
gasullchownmount: what do you suggest now? http://pastebin.com/DxxBtY6e07:29
etherealiteMindVirus your welcome, when your having trouble connecting, just try and reconnect and that will fix %90 of all problems.07:29
etherealiteWhy isn't avahi advertising my ssh server?07:30
MindVirusetherealite: I tried for like an hour earlier. :)07:30
etherealiteMindVirus did you try resetting the router too?07:30

naser67etherealite:is there a way to keep /var and /etc when i reinstall ubuntu07:43
naser67etherealite:sorry for my bad english07:43
Emanonif you have them in separate partitions before you reinstall naser6707:43
Emanonand you define them during install and tell it not to format them07:43
etherealitehe can do it without07:43
naser67etherealite:how?07:44
etherealitenaser67 yes, but your going to need to use a boot disk and copy the files unto a seperate disk07:44
etherealiteetherealite this is assuming your installing the same exact version of ubuntu07:45
Emanonand on the gif to jpeg thing earlier phatch will do that in large groups aparrently07:45
tripelbPlease help me...I have a new hard drive (1T Hitachi on an older Dell)  Linux (9.04,10.04, Fedora11) wont install. XP has installed. (I thought it was the CD drive which wont recognize a blank disk but now windows works.) The 9.04 disk has sucessfully installed before but not on this computer. That 9.04>>9.10 HD works on this Dell.  What could be the problem?07:45
naser67but i think separate partion is the best way07:45
etherealitenaser67 well its a little late for that isn't it?07:45
Emanontripelb: occasionally dark eldritch gods conspire to foil our installs07:45
etherealitenaser67 unless your already have separate partitions.07:45
naser67etherealite:no it's not07:46
Emanontry it from a usb key yog sothoth doesnt keep up with technology07:46
Besogonnaser67: try '/msg ubottu backup' command07:46
naser67Besogon:tnx07:46
Emanonalso check your install has the right architecture (as in not 64 bit for a 32 bit cpu)07:47
tripelbEmanon: It failed repeatedly. That's why I tried the Fedora disk. Even tho the Ubuntu disk checked out perfect I thought I dunno. I want to run ubuntu. Maybe there's something wrong with the hard drive?07:47
tripelbshould I try Ubuntu in a ;artition?07:47
Emanontripelb: try it on a usb drive if you can thats pretty fast07:47
Emanontripelb: also check your boot order and make sure the cd drive is available (unless your calling the boot menu manually)07:48
=== Supertanker is now known as SuperJoplin
Emanonmight also sacrifice a few annoying neighborhood kids to cthulhu that helps on occasion07:48
tripelbEmanon yes it's the right one. An install from the same liveCD disk (installed on a computer with problem RAM that would freeze up) works just fine on this Dell.  (this has frazzeled my brain, and what if my new HD is bad)07:48
Emanonnah if anything installs its fine07:49
Emanonright but that other computer might have a different cpu arch07:49
tripelbEmanon: the liveCD loads as a liveCD system. But gparted quits. The Fedora just showed an error. It doesnt have a separate gparted.07:50
Emanonoh it loads up on the one but wont install?07:50
Emanonhmmm07:50
Emanonmaybe the starts just arent right i hope someone else can help you cause im at a loss07:50
tripelbEmanon: The HD (with ubuntu from that livecd) works on both computers. That means that they have the same architecture.07:50
gasullIf I'm in the Live CD, how do I chroot into my hard drive?  I have my hard drive's root partition mounted already at /media/myboot07:51
Emanonftagn for now i guess07:51

tgywaHello, dns client is not working ....on Ubuntu 10.04. Do I need to install any dns client package?08:44
Slartspike__: yup08:44
sacarlsonspike__: help you with what unetbootin?  without knowing what your problem might be it is very hard to help.08:44
Doyleaxisys: you there?08:45
Slartspike__: live is just that you can run it from the cd.. a live cd, like the isos you download from ubuntu.com. Netinstall means it starts the installer and then downloads packages during the install.. ie you need a live internet connection for the install.. I have no idea what hdmedia is08:45
SlartSeito: yes, it's quite easy.. let me see if I can find a howto for you08:46
sacarlsontgywa: dns client?  you might need to make sure that the file /etc/resolv.conf has a dns server that works in it08:46
SeitoThnx, Slart :)08:47
apoageSeito, : well you can try this  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=18276408:47

GilesJava, Ruby, Python....etc09:03
DoyleJohnHeikkila: every os in the world can read it. Encorporate backend languages and you can build web-apps09:04
tgywamtx_init, I do think that I have the right config lines in /etc/resolv.conf09:04
JohnHeikkilaDoyle: Yes but if I want to kinda make a front-end for Flasm?09:04
GilesJohnHeikkila: it really depends on your applcation09:04
GilesJohnHeikkila: He is right, but It depends what you want to do09:05
mtx_inittgywa: not sure, maybe ask on the forums09:05
DoyleJohnHeikkila: there's no 'one' language for multi-platform applications... you could learn a few C languages, that's as close as youre going to get09:05
GilesJohnHeikkila: more traditional programming languages that are "cross-platform" are the ones I mentioned09:05
GilesJohnHeikkila: and yes, you can make any application cross-platform in almost any language09:06
JohnHeikkilaGiles: so you're now talking about the app I want to make a front-end for or the one I would make?09:06
DoyleJohnHeikkila: if you're going to write a front end for flasm... it'd be best to write specifically for each OS you want to deploy the app on09:07

wizzleSimon-MPFH, can u give me some tutorial?09:19
AvionicXDoyle» it didn't change anything. the cursor is still left pointing.09:19
Simon-MPFHKinda depends what the context is...   Most laptops pick up an address from DHCP from the router09:19
Doylejakeriver: updat eyour system, it was reported as a bug a few months ago09:19
Simon-MPFHWhy do you need to change it?09:19
jakeriverSimon-MPFH: ;). when i open it again the mouse is gone. i can still move the cursor but i don't see it. then i just need to restart again.09:19
Simon-MPFHjakeriver, Ah, I C.   Is your system fully up to date?  Which Ubuntu are you on?09:20

AnanD23how to install all the packages in ubuntu which are installed in BackTrack??09:21
jakeriveri think this is 10.04 and yes it is fully updated. i did some googling and this is an old bug already 2008 noticed.09:21
AnanD23can i do that??09:21
xjkxwizzle: i'm not sure what you want to do, but if you want to change the local ip, you could ifconfig 10.0.0.2 eth0 for example, being eth0 your ethernet card, by ifconfig command you can see the list09:21
xjkxthe list of ethernet cards09:22

Simon-MPFHjakeriver, recover from sleep has always been a bit of a problem - do you sleep or hibernate on lid close?  try the other and see if that helps09:23
AvionicXDoyle» yes.09:23
DoyleAvionicX: What kind of mouse is it?09:23
xjkxwizzle: like canadacow said, ifconfig with no arguments give you the information, like ip, MAC, ethernet cards09:23
AnanD23where will i get the packages which are installed in backtrack??09:24
wizzlexjkx, so which line is my current ip?09:24
AnanD23to install them in ubuntu???09:24
jakeriverSimon-MPFH: ok, i'll try that. it was now "when lid is closed: blank screen" but i'll try suspending now. thank you.09:24
GilesDoyle: It turns out that its the nipple thats faulty not the touchpad, and gpointer-device-settings will only let me disable the touchpad ;(09:25
Doylewizzle: theone that says inet addr: for the interface your'e using... wlan - wireless for example.09:25
xjkxwizzle: if you don't see a number looking like an ip, maybe it's not even set, you could set it yourself just so you'd know the number. keep in mind that it changes the local ip09:25
AvionicXDoyle» heh, i don't think it is a mouse problem. i notice that ubuntu by default don't have opposite pointing cursors. i'll try add a right pointing cursor and set it. thanks anyway. :)09:25

DoyleJohnHeikkila: give up on writing one app for multiple platforms, I don't htink you're at that level09:27
GilesJohnHeikkila: it requires alot of conditional compilation09:27
xjkxwizzle: in case you're having troubles understanding where the ip is, you could paste the result of the command in pastebin.com09:28
timClicksis there a shell command that allows the nth line + 5 to be printed out, e.g. lines 200-205?09:28
DoyleGiles: fail... reboot. You're not working on a server are you?09:28
JohnHeikkilaOh well09:28

vinokGiles, sorry if its not there, i don't know how to do it anymore =(10:02
DeanLearnersacarlson: much appreciated, thanks for your help10:02
sacarlsonDeanLearner: I assume you have something like bind9 dns server that gives the local network the ip's they need.10:02
GilesThis used to be such a simple task, you just remove the device from xorg.conf10:02
DeanLearnersacarlson: Kind of yeah, we are quite small scale, so there's just a DNS entry on the router pointing to the local server10:03
DeanLearner(I guess that could be running bind in the background though)10:03
sacarlsonDeanLearner: well if your clients  ping mysite.com from your local network and get the address of your apache2 server then it will work.10:04

Emanonthe firefox icon is still there10:08
erupterGiles and if you used to remove lines then it's no use...10:08
spike__guess no one cares to help me10:08
erupterGiles but if you had a line citing your device and could set it to "disable" or the likes, then you can still manually populate the xorg.conf10:08

WillPittengerI tried two different programs.10:11
th0rWillPittenger: you using kde or gnome?10:11
=== OmegaPhil1 is now known as OmegaPhil
WillPittengergnome, I think.10:12
th0rWillPittenger: open a terminal and type 'gksu gedit' and see if it prompts for a password10:12
spike__yeah best10:12
WillPittengerth0r: It did.10:13
th0rWillPittenger: then the same thing should work for a launcher....just add 'gksu ' in front of the command for the launcher10:13
WillPittengerI tried the standard file manager and dolphin.  Didn't work for either.10:14
anAngelHello. How can i revert the root back to its default state because i changed its password and now its a fully active account10:14
WillPittengerNeither program even opened.10:14
th0rWillPittenger: does the launcher work at all? sounds like the shortcut might be bad10:15
th0rWillPittenger: I can't be too specific about either of those programs as I use xfce and don't have them on my system10:15
WillPittengerI took gksu off the file browser item and it worked.10:16
WillPittengernautilus --no-desktop --browser10:16
SlartanAngel: I think there is a switch for passwd that removes the password entirely.. you'll have to check the man page10:17
th0rWillPittenger: then adding gksu in front of that should open the file manager as root...I would think. Don't think there is anything 'special' about nautilus10:17
th0rWillPittenger: try it in a terminal and see if the command line works10:18
ikoniaSlart: passwd -d10:18
WillPittengerI just readded gksu and it doesn't work anymore10:18
WillPittengerth0r: I got a help page for gksu.10:19
Slartikonia: ah.. that sounds like the one.. thanks. anAngel, did you see what ikonia said three lines up?10:19
th0rWillPittenger: try gksudo instead of gksu10:19
Slartth0r: just fyi, "gksu nautilus" works just fine here on 64bit 10.0410:20
Slartth0r: from a gnome terminal, that is10:20
anAngelSlart: yeap thanks i was reading the man pages anyway10:20
th0rSlart: yeah...I thought it should work <smile>10:20
anAngelikonia: thanks10:20
WillPittengerth0r: It would really help if there was a property for that in the launcher property window.10:20

WillPittengersudo works.10:21
th0rWillPittenger: try gksu 'nautilus --<whatever>'   Maybe the single quotes would help10:22
th0rWillPittenger: su would work but you would have to run it in a terminal.10:22
WillPittengerThat did it.10:22
WillPittengerBut then it said it couldn't find /home/will%u.10:23

bazhangDavsank, they're the same10:38
erUSUL!amd64 | Davsank10:38
ubottuDavsank: AMD64 and EMT64 are fully supported architectures on Ubuntu. See http://tinyurl.com/3jkole and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amd64 for more information.10:38
DavsankerUSUL how about Intel then?10:38
erUSULDavsank: AMD designed the architecture so they choose the name10:38
bazhangDavsank, same10:39
DavsankerUSUL So how caome i see packages built for i 386?10:39
erUSULDavsank: intel processors implement the amd64 architecture. ( they call it EMT64 )10:39
erUSULDavsank: that's for 32 bits10:39
casterUSUL: EM64T, but now they call it Intel 64, and it is slightly different to AMD6410:40
DavsankerUSUL: is there an EMT64 version then? or is i 386 considered to be 32 bit?10:40
erUSULcast: intel64 is itanium and has nothing to do with pc's10:40
apoageMaximLevitsky: ehm wile you have coppyed system(live iso or something) on usb  try to reinstall mbr on usb by "install-mbr /dev/your_usb_device"10:40

jribundecim: or "if_existing" i guess14:01
gp5stor any reason it wouldn't be able to get a proper lock on a file?14:01
undecimjrib: if_existing checks for the existence of a file, and also checks the contents of the file for the first parameter given to if_existing14:02
Baylesi want know where is www-data user directory14:02
jribundecim: k, so what are the contents on each system?14:02
undecimjrib: In this case, it should be true if eth0 is up (which it's not) and false when it's down14:02
jribBayles: why?14:02
undecimjrib: Contents of the files are identical14:02
gp5stBayles, it may not have one.  look at /etc/passwd14:02

Bert-I have something strange with a nec versa E6300 : I'm unable to change keyboard layout.14:39
jcrawfordthe issue though is when I add that and restart the network manager my connection to auto eth0 vanishes from network connections14:39
Bert-I choose the good layout (according to the keymap, applied system-wide, butsome keys qre still wrong14:39
jcrawfordwhen I remove the n900 entry it comes back.  My auto eth0 was setup using the GUI and is set to have a static IP.  Is there anyway I can have my cake and eat it too?14:39

dajhornDragonKeeper: The script is probably failing because your $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS variable is unquoted, and because you are very likely stacking your mount points.  Think about using `mktmp` or something like it.15:21

unpersonI've been using the TortoiseHG frontend for mercurial on my lucid box, and recently some text in the repository explorer window has become invisible for no apparent reason.  The GUI is python based and I got it by installing the tortoisehg and tortoisehg-nautilus packages from the universe repository.  Anyone experienced similar or have a clue how to diagnose?15:47
lucenut_OK, so I went in the Network Proxy Preferences and ticked "Manual Proxy Configuration". Checked "Use the same proxy for all protocaols." and entered "proxybum.com" and left the Port: 8080.15:47

jribunclemantis: you probably don't want to do it this way15:48
wickedSAhaavaros: /lastlog haavaros15:48
glebihankemalettin_12: that's because you haven't added the key to the trusted software providers15:48
wickedSAer15:48

ubottumiyamoto: Help with Broadcom bcm43xx can be found at  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx15:48

aganicemy recent lucid dell laptop using auto-suggested restricted broadcom driver bcmwl-kernel-source recently gave up the ghost and stopped seeing any wifi signals. what steps can i take to troubleshoot and/or make a good bug report?15:49
_2easyYNOPSIS find [-H] [-L] [-P] [-D debugopts] [-Olevel] [path...] [expression]15:49
jribunclemantis: I'm not familiar with thrift nor php extensions.  But /usr/ is package manager land, so ideally you would use a package (from the repositories).  If you are sure the repositories cannot satisfy your needs, then you usually install to /usr/local/15:49
wickedSAhaavaros: man find :)15:49

jrib!cli | unclemantis, answer to your original question though so you know for other cases15:50
ubottuunclemantis, answer to your original question though so you know for other cases: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome) or K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE).  Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal or type in it: man intro15:50
unclemantisthanks15:50
_2easybazhang: Command-line arguments following these are  taken  to  be  names  of files  or  directories to be examined, up to the first argument that begins with `-',15:51
kemalettin_12glebihan:  how to install from terminal ?15:51
glebihankemalettin_12: run "apt-get update" then "apt-get install google-chrome"15:52
_2easybazhang: find simply does not find any crt files in current directory15:52
glebihankemalettin_12: both preceded by "sudo"15:52
bazhang_2easy, then you would say that to haavaros15:52
Izinucskemalettin_12: glebihan it's sudo apt-get install chromium-browser .... google-chrome won't do anything.15:53
_2easybazhang: if you type 'find *' then you  try to egazime all directories in current directory, it's simply like 'ls -R'15:53
wickedSAhaavaros: try find "*CRT*"15:53
glebihanIzinucs: yes it will as he added the repository for it15:53
kemalettin_12Izinucs:  will install stable right ?15:54
haavaroswickedSA: Ok, thx15:54
wickedSAhaavaros: or find "*.CRT*"15:54
Izinucsglebihan: getting it from googles repo?15:54
haavaroswickedSA: Yes, that worked15:54
_2easybazhang: i already said "RTFM"15:54

Izinucskemalettin_12: didn't know you were using a repository outside of ubuntu's...15:54
bazhang_2easy, that's enough15:54
Izinucsglebihan: kemalettin_12 why are you using a 3rd party repo for chrome?  are you trying to instal vs 4?15:55
_2easybazhang: ok, but don't tell me that im wrong15:55
wickedSAhaavaros: shell wildcard expansion is fun ;)15:55
kemalettin_12 Izinucs: it is something bad for ubuntu ?15:55
glebihanIzinucs: kemalettin_12 wanted to install both chromium and google-chrome15:55
kemalettin_12 Izinucs: i have firefox, opera and chromium but i need a 4. browser here.15:56
kemalettin_12 Izinucs: i will delete the opera because it is  not open-source.15:56
look_2easy: but if he knows your wrong he will tell you that you are wrong, please be nice yea?15:56
Izinucskemalettin_12: glebihan good luck guys ..15:56

ashiswindoes anyone here know why Partimage keeps hanging at 1.06 GiB when creating an image of a partition?15:57
BluesKajkemalettin_12, you xan also go to the google chrome website and download the deb from there , right click on the app after downloading and choose deb installer15:57
glebihanIzinucs: thanks15:57
_2easylook: be nice, be nice, what's that all about? this is a disscusion i don't have to be nice.15:57

kemalettin_12BluesKaj:  i mean need a repo here..15:57
glebihanBluesKaj: yes I already suggested that but kemalettin_12 wanted automatic updates to be enabled, so he needed the repo15:57
BluesKajgooglr chrome auto updates itself , without the repos afaik15:58
glebihanBluesKaj: didn't know about that, I myself have the repo15:59
ashiswindoes anyone here know why Partimage keeps hanging at 1.06 GiB when creating an image of a partition?15:59
kemalettin_12BluesKaj: i need to update with manger.15:59
kemalettin_12repo is better..16:00
haavaroswickedSA: What's wrong with 'find . -name '*.CR2' -exec mv {} ./'? I get 'find: missing argument to `-exec''16:00
Picihaavaros: You need to have \; at the end of your -exec statement.16:01
wickedSAhaavaros: slow that down, what does find . -name '*.CR2' return?16:01
* BluesKaj shrugs , update from repos or google-chrome self upgrade , makes it redundant , kemalettin_12 , but go ahead if you insist16:01
yangpengwhois Pici16:01
Piciyangpeng: I'm me.16:01
Izinucsglebihan: kemalettin_12 chrome and chromium are essentially the same.. http://code.google.com/p/chromium/wiki/ChromiumBrowserVsGoogleChrome   ....  If you need a 4th browser try Flock. It's Firefoxed based but different enough.16:01
glebihanPici: wow that's surprising :)16:01
haavaroswickedSA: Pretty much exactly what I'm looking for16:01
=== apparle_ is now known as apparle
kemalettin_12Izinucs: i know thank you!.16:02

glebihanmernilio: depends on what you plan to do16:22
suboneIs there any way to specify that a program is only to be givin, say, 50% maximum of the cpu load? an app im using is using 100% constantly for an hour or so and is causing my computer to overheat16:22
mernilioglebihan: I need to brush up my javs skills16:23
mernilio*java16:23

mernilioglebihan: i think so too. Im not planning to make *anything*. Just to brush up my skills, like i said.16:25
glebihanmernilio: in that case, netbeans might be a good choice, it's far lighter than eclipse16:25
jellowkemalettin_12: I prefer chromium as it's not owned by google , yet i'm probally just paranoid16:26
mernilioglebihan: well, yes. but both is rather heavy, in all fairness.16:26
var_ohia16:26
