bazhangGuest48841, quickplay?00:02
jsidhuis there anyway i can disable gnome? I want my system to start as a vanilla X server, with a black background? I want to start a slideshow application and dont want to run anything else, dont want popups or other "updates available" type messages ever coming up00:03
stercorerUSUL: My goal is to hit a site for a file once a day (it permits up to 3 accesses a day), download the file, and give it a time-related extension.00:03
Guest48841yes, quickplay botton, is the botton that has the hp notebooks00:03
bazhang!nox | jsidhu00:03
ubottujsidhu: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode00:03
jsidhuyeah, then im left with figuring out how to auto login from the console00:04
erUSULstercor: wget -O /path/to/filename-$(date) url_here00:04
aeon-ltdjsidhu: yeah, just don't load gdm at boot, or get gdm to just start x. but just on the side - kinda a waste don't you think?, if you can run gnome yet you just want a photo viewer00:04
erUSULstercor: date has many format parameters00:04

minkifconfig only shows loopback00:17
gerinychanyone know how to configure acpi?00:18
filo1234mink: and ifconfig -a ?00:18
bazhangmink, thus my question00:18
minkiwconfig shows the wirless card00:18
replicasexSo, is it generally inadvisable to resize my ubuntu partition post facto?  I have a 1.5tb drive and I want to resize my windows partition and then add it to my ubuntu partition.  I have gparted.  Is this too troublesome to do?00:18
minkI originally thought it was a driver issue with the wireless card. but I enabled the motherboard wired adapter and connected it. It is detected but does not work either00:19
minkI see both cards with lshw -C network00:19
minkifconfig -a shows three adapters eth0 lo and wlan000:21
wea0filo1234: OK, I think I got something, let me try. brb.00:21
filo1234mink: sudo ifup eth000:22
=== `mOOse` is now known as m00se
minkfilo1234: what's that do? it says ignoring unkonwn interface eth0-eth0.00:23
replicasexSo any advice about partition resizing?  The only step that I'm unsure about it is after creating my desired unallocated space, do I just resize the ubuntu part. and it will automatically resize with the unallocated space or do I need to format that space into ext4 beforehand?00:25
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  that wouldent make sence.00:25
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  just resize.. it handles it00:25
Dr_Willisjot down your original UUID in cse it changes00:26
filo1234mink: have you modified /etc/network/interfaces ?00:26
replicasexDr_Willis, so essentially I just use gparted to resize the larger windows partition and then increasing ubuntu space should just work automatically?00:26
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  yes  - I tend to let windows shrink windows partitons. it tends to be a LOT faster at the job00:26
minkfilo1234: nope   basically an untouched fresh install of ubuntu studio00:27
replicasexI feel a bit annoyed as I should have thought to create more space.  I'm going for at least 500gb or so.00:27
replicasexDr_Willis, yeah, I'm a bit worried that ubuntu will explode windows if I use gparted on it.00:27
Dr_Willisreplicasex:  when in doubt.. backup impiorntant stuff.00:28
Dr_Willisuse windows to shrink windows... thats proberly the 'safest' way to do it if you are worried00:28
filo1234mink: so i think that some modules doesn't prensent on rt kernel, try with a generic normal kernel or look wich modules needs your eth interface00:28
replicasexDr_Willis, of course, of course I always backup stuff before any major change.00:28
replicasexNow i have to remember how to do that in windows.  Hmm.00:28
minkfilo1234: thanks00:30
wea0filo1234: OK, I have a plymouth theme now: "There is only one alternative in link group default.plymouth: /lib/plymouth/themes/kubuntu-logo/kubuntu-logo.plymouth"00:32
minkreplicasex: using gparted to change the partition size where windows is installed will cause windows to not boot. If you have a windows install disk then you can change the partition size then run a repair install from the disk.00:32
wea0But it still didn't work. I ran update-initramfs, but I still don't get a splash screen00:32
carlghi there, i want to install Age of empires on Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04 -- when using wine i get to the point where i create the install path, but when choosing typical or full install, it veryfies the filesystem space and tells me i do not have enough, i need 187mb - but i have 200gb free.... anybody able to help?00:33
minkreplicasex: It can easily be fixed with a repair install, but without the install disk then you will destroy your windows installation.00:33
minkYou might get lucky, but Windows doesn't like it's own partition size changed00:34
replicasexmink Well, we don't want that do we?  I should be safe if I use windows' disk management tool right?  Honestly I've thought about doing a clean install with 10.04 just to resize it.00:34
minkreplicasex: windows won't resize it's own partition and it won't recognize Ubuntu's file system at all.00:35
mbrigdanHello, I'm wondering if anyone can help me out. When I use 4g8 on my local network to watch some traffic, then kill it, it just drops the connection, and the host it was monitoring loses its internet connection until it resets. Anyone know how I can make it exit more cleanly (Direct traffic back to the other host)?00:36
minkreplicasex: it is relatively safe to resize the windows partition size if you have an install disk to repair your windows install after the resize. Without that disk, you are sol00:37
Guest3031how do I change my nick once here?00:37
Guest3031I'm already registered00:37
replicasexmink I have a grub rescue disc with the windows .mbr, would that suffice or would I need to create the install disc?00:38
velociostrichdoes anyone know how to pipe output from one command to a new file descriptor and into another command?00:38
LicuadoraWhat is the command to close the disc tray?00:38
shaunoLicuadora: eject -t ?00:39
minkreplicasex: I think its more than just an mbr issue for windows. I'm pretty sure you need the install disk. not an image restore type of install disk either. It has to be a true installer to have the ability to fix the issues.00:39
Licuadorashauno: It worked! THX00:39
shaunovelociostrich: not entirely clear what you're after, but I'd take a look at 'tee'.  it's the only way I know to pipe output into two different places00:40
KerrickIs #ubuntu-unregged in place due to bot attacks or something?00:40
replicasexmink, so I should probably just do a clean install.  It's not a big deal for me to do, if I do this at all.  I have around ~200gb on this partition but I'd like 500.  But the windows partition is easily accessible in Ubuntu so it's not a major problem.00:40
velociostrichshauno: I'm not trying to pipe in two places; I'm trying to pipe to a new file descriptor; i.e., instead of piping standard out to standard in, I want to pipe standard out to file descriptor 300:41
=== Nach0z is now known as sadch0z
minkreplicasex: I'm far from an expert, But I've done it once without realizing what problems I could cause. I was able to fix it easily with my installer disk though. but it was a pain to figure out how to fix it in the first place00:41
LoshkiKerrick: not sure, but many groups now require registration before they will let you join, not just #ubuntu...00:42
shaunovelociostrich: so just >&3  ?00:42
velociostrichshauno: redirection confuses the heck out of me, so I don't know, but I'll try that00:42

Leolo_3hello.  I need to set the baud rate when a USB-serial adapter is plugged in.  I understand that I have to do this via udev, but google isn't showing me how...00:43

Leolo_3currently I have a custom rule : KERNEL=="ttyUSB[0-9]*", OWNER="root", GROUP="lp"00:44
Leolo_3is there a way to add a speed to this?00:44
Dr_Willis!info setserial00:47
ubottusetserial (source: setserial): controls configuration of serial ports. In component main, is extra. Version 2.17-45.2 (lucid), package size 51 kB, installed size 176 kB00:47

Dr_Williswonder if setserial aorks for ttyUSB0 ports00:48
Leolo_3setserial doesn't set baud rate.00:48
Leolo_3loshki : my question si how do I get udev to run that command00:48
LoshkiDr_Willis: I wondered that too...00:49
Dr_WillisBeen years since i last had to mess with a serial port. I still have an old serial terminal in the garrage00:49
LoshkiLeolo_3: I've no idea. If all else fails, you can put the command into /etc/rc.local (if it works)00:49
Dr_WillisNormally its the program Using the serial port that handles the settings from what i recall. as part of its initilizaton00:49
LoshkiLeolo_3: what *are* you using the serial port for, btw?00:50
Leolo_3connecting to a serial printer, why?00:50
Leolo_3loshki : /etc/rc.local gets run before udev has the time to find the adapter00:51

bastidrazorcystic: yes, install kubuntu-desktop and during login you will have the option to choose00:52
Leolo_3dr_whillis : the program using the serial port is cups.  cups (backends/serial) has a "feature" in that it resets the serial port to the old setting after it's finished.  this causes the adapter to send the last few bytes at the wrong speed00:52
LoshkiLeolo_3: does that mean that a workaround is to stop cups, set the serial speed, then restart cups?00:53
cysticI am loving ubuntu... I have cairo-dock and compiz fusion, what is another good program that is useful and provides eyecandy?00:54
Leolo_3loshki : no.  it means to just set the baud rate before cups prints anything00:54

bazhangsometux, using wubi?00:57
th0rsometux: install virtualbox in windows, then use it to install ubuntu00:57
soreausometux: You have to mount the iso image with a mounter program00:57
sometuxI downloaded the iso image but i don't have a blank cd00:58
soreausometux: Right, so mount the iso with a mounter program so it creates a virtual drive00:58
cysticyou can mount it with poweriso00:58
soreauNero has a mounter too00:58

Dr_WillissFEARs:  openssh is NOT a 'dhcp' server.01:16
jribEvilPhoenix: if you tell it to, sure01:16
magedragon25the problem is with my current install....not upgrading....I am tired of seeing  that ubottu01:17
EvilPhoenixjrib, which would specify to get EVERYTHING including hiddens?01:17
Dr_Willisdhcp3-server - DHCP server for automatic IP address assignment01:17
egsomemagedragon25, try: `sudo apt-get -f install`, and pastebin the exact errors and log.01:18
jribEvilPhoenix: rsync will copy what you tell it to copy, there's nothing special about hidden directories01:18
Dr_WillissFEARs:  withoug a Dhcp server. You have to set up the ip, dns, routes pro0perly and staticly on both machines and they should work. Unless its a cable issue.01:18

egsomeir1844_, Just insert the CD or DVD, Then double click to get them mounted.01:19
sFEARsnevermind, read it wrong.. Dr_Willis, if i have both set to static i don't need a dhcp.01:19
Dr_WillissFEARs:  if you set them up Staticly - then you dont use a dhcp server.. one way or the other...   with dhcp.  You sert them both to DHCP amd they should 'work'01:19
ActionParsnipDelvien: boot to liveCD and reinstall grub201:19

cysticthat did it, thanks!01:25
dbrunsjrib: i need to automate the git pull/clone so it can update code when I deploy01:25
ActionParsnipDelvien: i'm not that conversant with grub to know the commands etc but I know you can type stuff to boot from that prompt01:25
jribdbruns: I mean connection-wise.  You have two machines and you just saying "connecting anytime thereafter".  Let's call your machines A and B01:25

Coded1Th0r. I'm not looking for specific information to do with iOS or hardware just what mode the adapter would have to be in to be recognized as an ap. IE. To sniff packets you have to be in "Monitor mode"01:26
Kyle__Hi.  I've got this weird situation, where the users can't get to sound, and so their login hangs.01:26
Kyle__Looks like pulse isn't starting.01:26
Kyle__Any ideas?01:26
jribNeo_: www-data (or "everyone" if you don't want to change owner/group)  needs execute permissions on all parent directories01:26
DelvienActionParsnip: Lol, i know, ive been using ubuntu for 6 years now, just the first time ive dealt with grub2 ( I dont like it!)01:26
jribNeo_: apache runs as www-data01:26
dbrunsjrib: A needs to connect to B  for a git pull which uses scp to transfer files   so when I do   git pull the first time (no entry in known_hosts on B) it works without prompting for a password.  Once there is an entry in known_hosts on B *for A*   it prompts01:26
ActionParsnipDelvien: i single boot so any bootloader is fine by me01:27
Dr_WillisDelvien:  compared to the LILO and GRUB1 fighting ive had in the past.. i will stick with GRUB201:27
DelvienDr_Willis: I liked grub1, it was straightforward!01:27
Dr_WillisDelvien:  dont forget Syslinux also.. :)  its fun when all them use similer yet different configs01:27
jribdbruns: forget about git pull.  Use just ssh so we can troubleshoot01:27
Dr_WillisDelvien: grub1 was also fastly aproaching a wall of limitations and other issues .. so  was born grub201:28
dbrunsjrib: yeah I am ;p01:28
dbrunsjrib: you asked me to explain the situation01:28
jribdbruns: but not in your explanation :/01:28
Neo_jrib: Thanks! fixed01:28
jribNeo_: no problem01:29
ActionParsnipKyle__: could try this ppa, it goes all te way to jaunty: http://superuser.com/questions/17180/ubuntu-ppa-with-pulse-audio-0-9-15   or you could just disable system sounds.....01:29
Kyle__ActionParsnip: Is there a way to do that for all users in one fell swoop?  Instead of doing it user by user?01:30
ActionParsnipKyle__: that will be applied system wide. Disabling the sound I am unsure of01:31
Kyle__I dunno if I can/should do that.... VIrtualbox hangs starting a VM if it can't get to the sound.01:32
DelvienDr_Willis: I suppose, but the problem is that when installing from a USB drive, grub2 detects MBR from usb, not from the HDD you are installing ubuntu on, which is why i ran into this recent problem. Bug reportin' time01:32
jribdbruns: if you're not sure how to explain it better, the best explanation is usually pastebin a series of commands and output in your terminal that illustrate your problem without the need for added words (I guess you should run ssh a couple of times and display one time it working and then not working right after).  Don't omit anything you run01:32
RickmastaAnyone mind helping me?01:32
iceman30adok I was following dj's instructions and got a new error01:32

RickmastaI'm new to ubuntu, linux persion. I orderd a cheap vps to mess arround with. So I want to setup znc, a friend was guiding me through, he was trying to help me set up a user on the server because he said not to do it as root.01:35
sometuxFalsAlarm: you need to install sendmail01:35
jribRickmasta: shouldn't you already have a user on the server?01:35
Rickmastathere's root.01:36
FalsAlarmsometux, does it require alot of configuration?01:36
jribRickmasta: root isn't enabled by default on ubuntu...01:36
Rickmastawhat do you mean?01:36
sometuxFalsAlarm: exim4 should work too , and it's easier to install and configure01:36
jribRickmasta: by default, the root account has no password on ubuntu01:36
FalsAlarmsometux, well, as long as I dont have open relay on my server01:37
jrib!root | Rickmasta01:37
ubottuRickmasta: 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/RootSudo01:37
Rickmastajrib: Mine does01:37
Rickmastaubottu: I know my root password01:37

jrib!version | latagore01:39
ubottulatagore: To find out what version of Ubuntu you have, type « lsb_release -a » in a !shell - To know the available version of a package, « apt-cache policy <package> »01:39
jriblatagore: no, you don't need to reinstall01:39
zzcranjohello all, just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction to creating my own window borders.01:40
zzcranjoIs there a better channel for this? or a link someone could give me?01:40
Rickmastajrib: Well, I'm trying to set up another user on the server, but I keep on getting "rick is now alloed to run sudo on vps. This incident will be reported."01:40
jribRickmasta: so you aren't root...01:40
latagorejrib: I just tried the command and I got "No LSB modules are available."01:40
jriblatagore: then you aren't using ubuntu01:41
Rickmastajrib: That's when I log onto that user.01:41
jriblatagore: or maybe you didn't type in what ubottu said01:41
jribRickmasta: please take 5 minutes to read the page about sudo ubottu sent you01:41
ActionParsnipRickmasta: is th user you are using a member of the admin  group?01:42
FalsAlarmto find out what version of linux your running, cat /etc/*-release01:42
ActionParsnipFalsAlarm: or: lsb_release -a01:42
latagorejrib: crap, sorry01:42
LinuxFetuszzcranjo: I don't think that that question pertains to "Ubuntu", really.  I would imagine (and I have a very limited knowledge) that joining a Gnome or KDE channel or something (if such a thing exists) would probably be more on topic.01:42
jriblatagore: I guess you forgot the "-a"?01:42
latagorejrib: excuse the language01:42
jribzzcranjo: art.gnome.org has a metacity tutorial.  For compiz, maybe try #compiz01:43
latagorejrib: Yes I forgot01:43
latagoreirib: Thanks for the help.01:44
zzcranjo@linux, thanks, I probably will. :) Jrib, thankyou, i will take a look01:44
jribdbruns: ok, before I get bored and leave.  Here's my guess: you're using encryption on the server... the authorized_keys file only exists in one state (encrypted or not decrypted).  If that's true, I'd suggest changing the location for that file in your sshd_config01:45
dbrunsjrib: sorry been trying different things..01:46
jribRickmasta: you know what root is and what sudo does now?01:46

FalsAlarmis there an easier way of sending mail from within php5 without using the php mail() function and installing a email server01:46
euxneksFalsAlarm, no.01:46
jribdbruns: well that doesn't show the key being used ever, right?  Does "authorized_keys2" work? I always use it without the "2"01:47
Rickmastajrib: Yes, I have an Idea.01:47
jribRickmasta: ok.  So you know what to do now?01:48
euxneksFalsAlarm, although, you may want to inquire in #php01:48
dbrunsjrib: yeah it works from megatron to megatron and from one of my pcs at the office to megatron01:48
litropyHi, peeps. Is there a chan for pam-face-authentication?01:48
Rickmastajrib: I would follow the "Allowing other users to run sudo", right?01:49
jribRickmasta: sure.  I'm guessing you created the "rick" user yourself from the root account?01:49
Rickmastajrib: Yup01:49
euxnekslitropy, try asking on their mailing list01:50
jribRickmasta: right, so as root, you need to "adduser rick admin".  That will add the rick user to the admin group and all users in the admin group are given the abliity to sudo.01:50
Rickmastajrib: but when I try that, I get "The group 'admin' does not exist."01:51
Dr_WillisRickmasta:  I do belive a user must log out/back in befor 'group' chanves will take affect.01:51
litropyeuxneks: I've never understood mailing lists. They're hard to navigate and fill up my inbox. Am I missing something in usability understanding?01:51
jribRickmasta: that's another standard ubuntu thing...  Are you sure this is ubuntu?  What does the command « lsb_release -a » return?01:51
dbrunsjrib: it even works if I connect directly from the laptop I'm on..01:51
euxnekslitropy, I use gmail and filter mailing lists into their own labels and skip the inbox01:52
Dr_WillisRickmasta:  the command worked for me -->  willis@cow:/home$ sudo adduser peg admin01:52
euxnekslitropy, you can also unsubscribe after a while01:52
Dr_Willis(peg is my users name in question)01:52
jribdbruns: not to be a pain, but I still don't know the problem :)  In any case, if you *are* using encryption on the server, you *need* to change the location of authorized_keys to somewhere outside the encrypted directory01:52
euxnekslitropy, other than that you can email that guy on the project page01:52

dbrunsjrib: I changed nothing and after trying a few times from all over it works now....01:54
jribRickmasta: they called the group "staff" instead of admin :/01:54
Rickmastajrib: I added that, a friend told me to.01:55
RickmastaThere was only root.01:55
ActionParsnipSamplezt: can you access the internet on the same PC?01:55

litropyPeeps, why is the right click menu of unity not popping? for instance, I hover and get "Google Chrome" in a nice, easy to read bubble. I then right-click, and I don't get "Keep in Dock" and the like.01:55
jribRickmasta: k, that's fine.  But standard is "admin" on ubuntu, so when you see the "admin" group in the documentation, you'll have to read that as "staff"01:55
dbrunsjrib: how can I tell if it is encrypting my home directory? I don't remember how I set it up on megatron01:56
RickmastaI'll change it to staff01:56
ActionParsnipSamplezt: ok cool, can you give the output of: sudo apt-get update     use http://pastie.org to give the output01:56
jribdbruns: umm, if you close every session your user has and then go to his home with another user, you'll see some encryption related stuff there.  Don't know of a better way01:56

pietro10Hi. Ubuntu detects my Netgear router (don't remember the model # sorry) and it shows the active wireless networks, but it refuses to connect to them from my Dell Precision M6400. Rebooting into Windows was the same way. My Mac however is connected and working fine. Is there a way I can check the logs on Ubuntu to see what's going wrong? Thanks.02:19

Kyle__ActionParsnip: No great shakes there.  It shows it's intel AC97 audio, and the drivers are infact loaded.02:22
bastidrazorRickmasta: that isn't an actual error, can you be specific02:22
Rickmastajrib: sudo?02:22
ActionParsnipRickmasta: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-linux-add-user-to-group/02:22
jribRickmasta: presumably, you are root...02:22
ActionParsnipKyle__: you may need some options on the module or kernel to make it fly. If it is a branded PC or laptop then this can be used in websearches02:22
pietro10thune3: ok it says MAC Filtering is "Secured"02:23
pietro10which is odd; I don't have WEP enabled02:23
pietro10maybe it turned that on when I gave the router Dynamic DNS02:23
Kyle__ActionParsnip: I needed no options on the other identical machines that are running ubuntu.02:23
ActionParsnipKyle__: interesting. hmm. Is the sound chip onboard or is it on the motherboard?02:23
ActionParsnipKyle__: is the sounds card easily replaceable, basically02:24
pietro10ok it still doesn't seem to be connection02:24
pietro10yeah it's not connecting02:24
Rickmastajrib: Ok, I added the user to admin, I change staff to admin, I'm still getting the same error. "rick is not allowed to run sudo on vps."02:25
Kyle__No, it's onboard.  This problem just started happening today in this lab, and it's effecting all the machies with that image.  I can't roll back, so I need to diagnose what's going on to fix it.02:25

zzcranjoI accidentally installed a 32-bit10.04, to change it to 64 is it as simple as compiling a 64 bit kernel? I can only access 3.7 gigs of ram, even though i have 4gigs.02:30
ActionParsnipzzcranjo: you can install the pae kernel to access up to 12Gb RAM02:31
Dr_Williszzcranjo:  it will take a reinstall.. enve even with 64bit. and exactly 4gb of ram. SOME of it may be used by the system. so not accessable fully02:31
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info02:31
zzcranjoActionParsnip: thanks02:31
Dr_Williszzcranjo:  with exactly 4gb of ram. its a bit of a tossup - if its worth going 64bit or not.. depends on what you are doing with the system02:32

Dr_Willissinman:  the grub2 factoid and forum posts are what i follow.. bookmarked at my delicious page -> http://delicious/com/dr_willis/grub2  (i think)03:18
sinmanDr_Willis: ok03:19
Dr_WillisTraumaPony:  for starters install the ssh server so you can ssh into a box remotely and try to fix things if the gfx messes up03:19
TraumaPonyDr_Willis: How do you install it from a live cd?03:19
sixtwoI was wondering if anyone can help me?03:20
Dr_WillisTraumaPony:  chroot into the installed system.. sudo apt-get install ssh03:20
extremedevilzI was thinking will gameguard work with wine?03:20
Dr_Willisextremedevilz:  and gameguard is what?03:21

Tweakyhi. every time i boot up i have no window borders. i go to appearance and change from normal to custom effects every time, it doesnt keep my option after reboot. so i have no window borders on bootup unless i go to appearance and change to custom. any ideas so i can have custom on permanantly?03:21
extremedevilzanti cheat system03:21
Dr_WillisTraumaPony:  track down a guide on chrooting. ive not had to chroot into a linux box in ages.. the basics. mount system to /media/chroot   then 'chroot /media/chroot'  then in that terminal you are 'in' the installed system./ there may be other steps needed03:22
sixtwoJust built new 64 bit quad core and installed 64 bit Ubuntu 10.4 - but system is running slower than my P4. Any suggestions? I have a WD Caviar Green HD, 1GB PC26400 mem, Phenom 9850 CPU and a 1GB Nvidia 220 GT video card (not installed).03:22
dlp211you only have a gig of memory?03:22
Dr_WillisTweaky:  compiz is crashing or some setting is not getting set. You could install and run the fusion-icon program  that should auto-restart compiz as needed03:22
egsomesixtwo, 1 gig memory ?!03:23
TraumaPonyDr_Willis: Thanks, that worked03:23
Tweakydr_willis thank you03:23
sixtwofor the time being - but just running ubuntu is slow - my p4 with 2gb performs better than it03:23
tensorpuddingsixtwo: "running slower" seems to be subjective: if they're not running the same software it's not really a fair comparison03:23
DragonKeeperlol' @ quad and 1gb ram03:23
dlp211i have quad with 6 and feel like i dont have enough03:24
tom_does anyone have an nvidia video card on a motherboard with embedded ati video controller?03:24
sixtwothen i should say its performing better - both have ubuntu 10.4 but one is 32bit other is 64 - it takes 3-4 seconds for window to load03:24
DragonKeeperim running 6 core  4gb ram soon to be 803:24
tensorpuddinga p4 with 2GB of RAM would conceivably outperform a C2Q with 1 GB RAM, if only because the 1 GB will lead to more swapping.03:24
egsometom_, Yeah.03:24
tom_egsome: what kernel do you have?03:24
dlp211and a caviar green03:24
tom_egsome: do you drive display from ati controller or nvidia?03:25
egsometom_, 2.6.32-24-generic-pae03:25
Dr_WillisHere we go -> 'Grub 2 title tweaks' -->   http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=128760203:25
egsometom_, Sure nVidia.03:25
tensorpudding64-bit has a slight RAM usage hit also, due to the increased amount of addressing; don't know how measurable the difference is.03:26
dlp211sixtwo: unless you need 64 bit, you should run 32 bit desktop03:26
zeltakso anyone mind helping out on flash and firefox 4?03:26
Dr_WillisI go the otuer route.. if you can use 64bit.. may as well use it.. :)03:26
egsomezeltak, Describe your problem, And people here should help ..03:26
tom_egsome: have you tried having the ati controller as the primary controller in the bios and then driving the monitor through it?03:27
vu1kan<python -m SimpleHTTPServer> allows one to serve their current working directory over their lan@ localhost:8000, I would like to expose this dir to the internet.  I've already set up a ddns provider, and forwarded port 8000 through my router, what would be my next step? or could someone point me towards a how-to?03:27
dlp21164bit on the desktop is still not stable enough for me03:27
dlp211or most people03:27
xuekanhello , is anyone knows how to install the login theme?03:27
Dr_WillisI use all 64bit on my home lan for one other reason.. i just need one 'apt-cacher' server to serve up the 64bit pcakges also. vs needing to cache 32 and 64bit packages.03:27
dlp211server on the other hand03:27
egsomedlp211, Agree.03:27
egsometom_, No.03:27
Dr_WillisI cant say ive had any issues with 64bit on my desktop.  at least none ive noticed.03:27
zeltakthe egsome ..well basiclly i have no flash wiht ff4 but do have it with chrome03:27
tom_egsome: the thing is, I want to use my nvidia card purely for CUDA programming, so I don't need to drive monitor through it ... but, in this configuration my system always hungs03:28

dzup2who succesfully ran googleearth in 10.04, mine is exiting on Google Earth has caught signal 11.03:29
egsometom_, You need to tell Linux to use ATI not nVidia Card ?03:29
zeltakegsome: mmm no just the ubuntu plugin. also i just checked and there is no flash in ff3.5 as well03:29
zeltakdlp211: havent reinstalled latley03:29
tom_egsome: it uses the ATI card, but the system crashes every now and then ... sometimes it can run overnight, if I don't do any activity (such as web browsing) on it03:29
egsomezeltak, Have you got flash ever working on that system ?, I Mean Have you installed it before ?03:29
zeltakegsome: flash is working well under google chrome right now03:30
egsometom_, What do you mean by `crash`?, What happen exactly ?03:30
dlp211zeltak: i meant the flash plugin03:30
xuekanno one knows how to install a login theme? I just downloaded the package,but after unpack it,there are no .theme file.03:31
zeltakhmmmm dunno...i thought chrome used the flasj plugin...how do i check for it?03:31
Dr_Willisxuekan:  you sure it was a GDM 2 theme, and not a GDM 1 theme?03:31
egsomezeltak, So you have `flash plugin` under `Tools -> Addons > Plugins` in ff4 ?03:31

chrisd__Hi -- when I try to use the wireless in 10.04 it says "wireless is disabled" like the hardware switch has it disabled -- there is a switch but it is not disabled, other operating systems I've used on the computer haven't done this. Any ideas?03:31
egsomeegsome, I don't know where exactly to ff4, but it should be like 3.x03:31
tom_egsome: GUI freezes ... I can't even move a mouse, or switch to text consoles ... (ALT+Fx) ... sometimes I can Alt+SysReq+B to reboot the system (meaning that some part of the kernel is responsive), but sometimes even that doesn't work ...03:31
pietro10is there some sort of diagnostic tool for this? bcm431203:31
zeltakegsome: no flash is not present just icedT03:32

tom_egsome: this ubuntu 9.10 with the new kernel and 10.4 are completely a nightmare for me03:32

ashiswinDr_Willis, yes it does say that03:36
Dr_Willisashiswin:  if dd_rescue cant even read the sda (try sda1 instead?) then  it may be unrecoverable.. try /dev/sda1 and see if it can read that03:37
ashiswini did sda1 not sda03:37
Dr_Willisashiswin:  sounds bad...03:37

keithclarkDr_Willis, good idea!04:52
engidui didn't think you could ssh from a win prompt04:52
Dr_Willisinteliwasp:   any irc server, or even bbs programs could do that.  You can even get irc servers written in  a few lines of perl.04:52
ActionParsnipengidu: install putty04:52
ffdsfbtw is it possible to use keyboard selection in gnome-terminal?04:52
Dr_Willisengidu:  putty.exe or use simthing similer.04:52
ranthiengidu, they make a windows ssh program04:52
engiduty again04:53
inteliwaspDr_Willis, yes i was hopeing for a recomendation04:53
ActionParsnipengidu: ssh also allows file access, remote X apps (install xming on windows for that) and the app will run on the server but display on the client system04:53
Dr_Willisinteliwasp:  the ones in the repos are  for more hardcore ussage.  use one if you like. but you will want to read their docs.04:54

omarthere is a reported bug Bug #50772305:49
Dr_Willis!bug #50772305:49
Dr_WillisI know theres a bug bot trigger. :)05:49
LinuxFetusOn Ubuntu's website, why isn't it recommended for daily desktop users to use the 64 bit version of the OS?05:50
ffdsf!bug 50772305:50
ffdsfLinuxFetus: because no-one inspects code before compiling it in 64 bit05:50
EmanonLinuxFetus: probably cause of the poor support for some widely used apps like flash player05:50
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  if you dont know what 32 vs 64bit means.. its  basically defaulting to telling users to use 32bit05:51
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. :-)05:51
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  read up on that 'page' at -> http://www.ubuntu-user.com/Online/Blogs/Marcel-Gagne-Orbiting-Planet-buntu/Stop-Apologizing-For-Linux05:51
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  short answer. if you understand 32 vs 64bit then decide what one you want to use.. if the terms mean nothing to you.. better stick to 32bit05:52
LinuxFetusffdsf: So it's like a use at your own risk kind of thing, then?05:52
ActionParsnipLinuxFetus: 3rd party companies still support 32bit better than 64bit (broter and canon are 2 that spring to mind), it's just an easier life for new users etc05:52
iflemaomar the bug ismarked invalid....05:52
maxeryGood idea05:52
omarI installed ubuntu in a toshiba and after installation i got this bios block 3 is damaged05:52
niglophow do i mount disk?05:52
Dr_Willis!mount | niglop05:52
ubottuniglop: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount05:52
LinuxFetusDr_Willis: I understand what 32 and 64 bit are, I was just wondering why they would have a warning...05:52
LinuxFetusDr_Willis: But I'll read the link you gave me.05:52
ActionParsnipniglop: you can't.You don't mount disks. You mount partitions05:52
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  think of it as 'idiot proffing'05:53
Dr_WillisProffing. :)05:53
* Dr_Willis gives up spelling..05:53
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  if you got more then 4gb of ram. You will want 64bit for the most part.  If less then 4gb. well. its not that big an issue. You do gain some speed from 64bit.05:54
B4B4B0Z0R6hello i am using ubuntu netbook remix on a eee pc 1016 i have some questions is there anybody to help05:54

Dr_Willisbenchmarks on PAE kernels for over 4gb  are lacking compared to a 64bit kernel also.05:54
B4B4B0Z0R6first microphone doesnt work i did the instructions in ubuntu website for eee pc 10005:54
ActionParsnip64bit really helps audio and video encoding, and other such data transforms05:55
B4B4B0Z0R6but it doesnt work for me05:55
=== Zain is now known as ExtremeDevilz
ActionParsnipB4B4B0Z0R6: run alsamixer, make sure all sliders are cranked and not muted as well as the gnome app05:55
Emanonand get ready for feedback05:55
Dr_Willisive noticed video recoending times MUCH improved on 64bit :) and a properly confifgured ffmpeg.05:55
Emanonwhat transcoder do you use Dr_Willis05:56
zen0-LinuxFetus: poor flash support though05:57
LinuxFetusDr_Willis: Yeah, because I don't think that Wubi/Ubuntu or whatever is smart enough (or at least wasn't) to not install a 64-bit version of itself on a computer with a 32-bit processor.  A friend gave me an Ubuntu CD at the beginning of the year, and I tried to run it live on one of my 32-bit computers (not knowing that the CD I had was 64-bit. only).  It wouldn't load (I didn't recognize the x86_64 error message it gave haha)... so05:58
LinuxFetusI tried to do the installation thingy from Windows... it went ahead and installed, and it gave me the option between choosing it and Windows at startup, even though it would never load... but yeah, that makes sense because a few users would get thoroughly frustrated if their 64 bit one wouldn't install properly... I only have 2 GB of RAM on this computer...05:58
Dr_WillisEmanon:  ffmpeg for most all my needs05:58
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  I for one feel that wubi sould just be removed... :)05:59
zen0-Dr_Willis: i second this :) but this is because im an elitist bastard05:59
ffdsfcan someone recommend gtk theme which isn't so large and gaudy as default ones?05:59
* zen0- apologises for his potty mouth05:59
B4B4B0Z0R6i runned alsamixer06:00
zen0-ffdsf: elementary06:00
Dr_Willisffdsf:  theres loads of themes in the repos not installed by default. check out the 'community' theme package.06:00
B4B4B0Z0R6and i unmuted all06:00
Dr_Willisffdsf:   and theres unofficial PPA theme archives with lots of them also.06:00
B4B4B0Z0R6but my microphone still not working06:00
zen0-ffdsf: trying www.gnome-look.org06:00
LinuxFetuszen0-: When you say Flash isn't well supported, do you mean it has some bugs or it just flat-out doesn't work?06:00
zen0-B4B4B0Z0R6: have you looked to make sure its selected in the sound menu06:00
Emanoni like losing the bottom panel in favor of a dock un-expanding top panel and hiding both06:00
niglophow do i found out which partition my usb is mounted on?06:00
Dr_Willisffdsf:  the gnome-art and gnome-artng (or was it gnome-art-ng) tools let you browse/install themes from teh various gnome sites also06:01
nazDr_Willis, hey06:01
Emanonthe 64 bit flash was an alpha build06:01
Dr_Willisniglop:  one way 'sudo fdisk -l' and see what devices are where. and check 'mount' command output also IF its allready mounted06:01
Dr_Willisnaz:  Moo? :)06:01
zen0-LinuxFetus: 64bit flash for linux was offically dropped by adobe, so it doesnt get any security fixes or anything.  On the other hadn you can use 32bit flash but for me at least it doesnt work well06:01
nazDr_Willis, i did it but i had Nouveau krn driver in use i let the nvidia installer disable it06:01
Emanonso you got to choose between a rather crappy workaround to get the 32 bit on 64 or use the alpha stage 6406:01
airtonixDr_Willis, niglop or just use the "Disk Utliity" application from the system menu06:02
Dr_Willisnaz:  that Nouveau has been a total disaster for my 3 nvidia systems.06:02
B4B4B0Z0R6anyone can help microphone doesnt work in netbook remix on eee pc 1016p06:02
zen0-LinuxFetus: for instance, some clickable objects in flash cant be clicked with 32bit flash.  But this may just be my issue06:02
noisewaterphdB4B4B0Z0R6: this may be a silly question but do you have the proper mic selected in audio preferences, and then unmuted it in alsamixer? I've had things not show up in alsamixer until I had them configured properly in audio prefs06:02
LinuxFetusAnd flash is closed-source so there's no way for the open-source community to pick it up effectively?06:02
Dr_Williszen0-:  i think that bug has multi-causes.06:02
Emanonno i have observed that to zen0-06:02
nazDr_Willis, during boot i got a error about a smb06:02
niglop[adam@tux ~]$ sudo mount /dev/sdb /mnt06:02

ubottuPlease try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!06:02
Dr_WillisLinuxFetus:  i have heard that theres a GPL flash replacement now that does work with YouTube. :)06:02
zen0-LinuxFetus: there is an open source alternative to flash06:02
B4B4B0Z0R6it should works06:03
nazniglop, ext4 ntfs fat32?06:03
LinuxFetuszen0-: But if they can't be clicked in 32-bit flash, then why would having a 32-bit OS make things better?06:03
EmanonLinuxFetus: there are FOSS flash decoders but they arent very good06:03
niglopnaz» not sure06:03
zen0-Dr_Willis, Emanon: glad to know im not alone :)06:03
Emanonit can be on a 32 bit system06:03
noisewaterphdDr_Willis: Gnash supposedly works on youtube, but I haven't tried it myself06:03
airtonixniglop, you can mount block devices... only the partitions on them06:03
nazwhat are you trying to mount06:03
Emanonbut the 32 bit workaround for 64 bit breaks clicking sometimes06:03
ffdsfnoisewaterphd: it doesn't06:03
Psi-JackHow do I get Ubuntu to not use fbcons at bootup and just use straight up simple text mode? I'm running ubuntu in kvm and it gets horribly painfully slow in virt-viewer because of how fbcons works specifically in Ubuntu.06:03
niglopairtonix» can you walk me through how to mount my usb06:03
zen0-LinuxFetus: im just saying if your a bit of a nooby and dont want to mess around with flash, it may be better to use 32bit, that is if you dont have a lot of ram06:04
airtonixniglop, 1. system menu 2. admin menu 3. Disk Utility06:04
B4B4B0Z0R6guys please i really need to use mic06:04
iflemazen0-: get the tgz package from adobe, remove all currenlty install flash and extrat the .so file to the newly created plugins directory ( ~/.mozilla/plugins)06:04
zen0-LinuxFetus: hence why its a good idea for the Wubi installer :P06:04
nazDr_Willis, i got it to install successfully.... but i dont see a nvidia icon anywhere... how can i check to see if it is using the driver06:04
niglopairtonix» 1. i dont06:04
extraclassicniglop: it's really fast on command line06:04
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  theres the 'text' option you can tell grub. but i also blacklisted the framebuffer module. :)06:04
niglopuse gnome06:04
zen0-iflema: that is how i installed it06:04
Psi-JackDr_Willis: How would I just flip that with Ubuntu's way of handling grub2 proper?06:04
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: Flash works fine on 32bit, and I have a working compiled 64bit version I can give you if that is your problem06:04
airtonixniglop, its expected that when you ask for help here without specifying the system you are using that is by default going to be : ubuntu 10.04 and gnome.06:05
iflemazen0-: and you havenoother versioninstalled??06:05
nazniglop, fdisk?06:05
EmanonB4B4B0Z0R6: u check the pulseaudio sound manager in your tray?06:05
zen0-iflema: im pretty sure, let me check06:05
niglopk airtonix  im in disk utility not what06:05
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  edit /etc/default/grub and replace the 'quite whatever' entry with 'text' is what i do and rerun update-grub to make text' the default.06:05
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: I mean Adobe Flash works fine (or at least as good as it does on any other OS06:05
Emanoncause sometimes the inputs or levels get switched around06:05
LinuxFetusnoisewaterphd: If you have something that's working, then why isn't it in the repos or something?06:05
airtonixniglop, it should be pretty obvious by now.06:05
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  that disables plymouth AND gdm. but I think i also had to blacklist the fb16 module,06:05
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  let me find my notes06:05
iflemazen0-: if you did it that way thepackage manager should show none installed....06:05
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Found it. I'm trying it now.06:06
niglopairtonix» it says its mounted but its not at the same spot as last time =s?06:06
niglopit was at /media/disk last time06:06
airtonixniglop, your point ?06:06
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: 32 bit should be in the repos, 64 bit got temporarily killed on *nix by adobe, but I hacked together my own working 64 bit. I can email you the binary as well as instructions on where to put it if you need it06:07
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  i thinkit still tried the framebuffer console. Untill i blacklisted that module06:07
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Hmmm.06:07
Psi-JackDr_Willis: you're right!06:07
Psi-JackDr_Willis: It did still do that crap. :/06:07
zen0-iflema: yeah06:07
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  it should of stopped gdm, and plymoputh at least06:07
LinuxFetusnoisewaterphd: *nix?06:07
airtonixniglop, just click the partition and then click the blue text next to "mount point"06:08
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: Linux/Unix/Solaris/FreeBSD06:08
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  you did 'update-grub' after editing the file?06:08
Psi-JackDr_Willis: My vm's don't run those.06:08
niglopairtonix» Failed to execute child process "nautilus" (No such file or directory)06:08
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Yes06:08
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: Mac is the only nix based os with an official 64 bit right now06:08
Psi-JackDr_Willis: What'd you do, blacklist fbcon?06:08
airtonixniglop, or you can simply navigate to that path06:08
niglopyes but i want it in a different spot so my alias works properly06:08
airtonixniglop, right click blue text06:08
extraclassicniglop, just learn to mount it in command line and you can put the folder wherever06:09
niglopextraclassic» thats what ive been trying to do but airtonix has just been telling me to use disk utility..06:09
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  i forget the module name.. it seems different on this 10.10 box.06:09
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: if running 64 bit is your issue, just tell me where to send you the working version06:10
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  i thought it was fb16vga or somthing like that for the framebuffer06:10
airtonixniglop, do you really need to have a custom mount point ?06:10
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Well, I just blacklisted fbcon and vga16b, but it's still fricken doing it.06:10
LinuxFetusnoisewaterphd: Can I /msg you?06:10
Psi-JackAhh, vga16fb, forgot the f.06:10
noisewaterphdLiuxFetus: if you are running 32bit you should be able to install directly from adobe, or I swear its in the repos06:10
niglopyes airtonix i have an alias in my bashrc that opens that folder when i type my command but its moved mount points and i dont want to change the script06:10
noisewaterphdLinuxFetus: sure06:10
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  Interesting.. 10.10 dont seem to load that by default.. or else the nvidia driver install blacklisted it allready06:10
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  but this is a Upgrade box.. it may kept my old blacklist file06:11
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Aha, spelling it right seems to have done the trick06:11
Psi-JackMuuuuuch better!06:11
Psi-JackI can LIVE with it now. :D06:11
airtonixniglop, is the alias having random characters ? if so you need to give the volume a name so that the mountpoint has the same name as the volume06:11
niglopairtonix» the alias is set to /media/disk as the folder to open which was where it was mounted before06:12
Emanonk the gwibber ppa fixed the problem thanks06:12
niglopextraclassic» can i help you06:12
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  yea. i just login at console and do 'startx' these days :)06:12
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  the framebuffer part is really an annoyance. on a live cd. the consoles dont work for me with the nveou drivers+framebuffer06:12
extraclassici hit some button, sorry...tried to send a message to you to tell you what to do06:12
nigloplolz kk06:13
Psi-JackDr_Willis: I don't. My servers don't run X, except the bare-metal part, and usually only via VNC remote access through secure VPN.06:13
airtonixniglop, all my usb volumes have standard fat partition volume names and therefore the mountpoint is automatically created based on that name06:13
B4B4B0Z0R6no idea about why mic oesnt work on eee pc 101606:13
B4B4B0Z0R6why buntu has not ut it in the wiki06:13
Dr_WillisPsi-Jack:  yea. I couldent even get the 10.10 installer to display properly withoput some settings tweaks :()   Progress! and bug reports filed :)06:13
Emanonk is there a good graphical config tool for grub (like alter resolution, background and so forth) and also for the encryption passphrase entry screen06:14
glebihanEmanon: startupmanager06:14
Dr_WillisEmanon:  ive had startup manager break things.. i dont think it handles grub2 that well.06:15
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Heh. Eh, well. :)06:15
Dr_WillisEmanon:  so i would backup your original configs befro trying ti06:15
Emanonand any idea how to change the resolution on the encryption passphrase entry screen?06:15
glebihanDr_Willis, Emanon : didn't see it was for grub2, never tried it with grub206:15
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Most of my servers are actually running under kvm. The host OS I've moved to using f13 at the moment, but I still have ubu servers. :)06:15
Emanonsorry i said grub you're right06:16
Emanonmeant grub206:16
Dr_WillisGiven that grub2 is the default these days... :)06:16
glebihanDr_Willis: yes but I'm still using grub106:16
Dr_Willisold grub = Grub legacy06:16
Psi-JackDr_Willis: Default? You mean, ONLY option? :p06:16
enlihi, I am using Karmic and wish to try recent kernel. Can the kernels provided at ubuntu kernel-ppa be used in older Ubuntu releases? e.g. Can I install Maverick kernel into older Ubuntu releases?06:16

glebihanDr_Willis: I tend to forget that grub2 is the default now06:16

atari2600ais there a workaround?06:17
Emanontheos: you in america?06:17
Dr_Willistheos:  sounds like its saying the WMAS codec is somting that vlc cant support.. (legal reasons?)06:17
theoserm Dr_Willis donno06:17

Dr_Willistheos:  stheres some hits about it at the vlc forums.. sure its not wmap ?06:18
theosEmanon, no i am not in america06:18
atari2600aI recall having to install DVD CSS support through a deb file06:18
Emanoncause if you know your country doesnt have problems with copyright on formats might try ubuntu-restricted-extras06:18
glebihantheos: as far as I remember, I've never been able to read such files06:18
Dr_Willistheos:  try the w32codecs pack and mplayer perhaps.06:19
theosGlebelg, Dr_Willis , i have installed the ubuntu-restricted-extras but it didnt help. i get the same error06:19
glebihanDr_Willis, emanos: won't work06:19
theosi was thinking if i could open these files with totem instead of mplayer06:19
Psi-JackWhat really urks me right now is that under kvm, ubuntu doesn't get the reboot signals, but EVERY OTHER distro does just fine.06:19

intmedhow to restart hybrid-ircd06:20
Dr_Willisintmed:  if its a normal service.. use the service command06:20
Dr_Willis'sudo service whatever restart'06:20

earthmeLonSo, I have no .bashrc file.  I've created one and when I do source ~/.bashrc, It works, but on initial connection, it's back to basic.  How can I fix this?06:28

Dr_Willisintmed:  the service command has options for that.06:29
glebihanintmed: I told you, it's "ircd-hybrid" not "hybrid-ircd"06:29
Dr_Willisintmed:  service --help06:29
Dr_WillisI do belive the service command has tab completion support also (well bash does for it)06:29

earthmeLonDr_Willis.  .profile doesnt exists v_v06:38
Dr_WillisI forget how ubuntu has all the bash scripts ordered now. used to be it was .bash_profile sourced .bashrc and the /etc/profile but i think that changed06:38

marlonI swear I've tried everything06:39
Dr_Willis!sound | marlon06:39
ipv5so i've got these 3 monitors lying around and they're making m think about building a triple headed system...06:39
ubottumarlon: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.06:39

Dr_Willismarlon:  did sound work on live cd, has it ever worked...  what is your sound card chipset?06:40

ipv5maco; what do you mean?06:40
wizzzzzzardis the Netgear wpn311 now supported?06:41
macoipv5: compiz will have a very wide desktop and one desktop will go across all 3. you spin it, and you'll move to the next.06:41
wizzzzzzardor does it still require madwifi?06:41
wizzzzzzardI no longer see any documentation past 2008 on the card06:41
glebihan!enter | wizzzzzzard06:41
ubottuwizzzzzzard: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!06:41
macoipv5: it wont move the contents of one monitor to the next monitor. all 3 monitors will change at once06:41
ipv5maco: oh06:41
macoipv5: this is why i hated multiple monitors when i used compiz06:41
wizzzzzzardglebihan: irrelivent bot answers are useless and less productive then overuse of enter. Please contribute or leave the comment for someone who knows, thank you.06:41
marlonWhat happened to you <Dr_Willis>?06:42
guest24nyc anyone ?06:42
Emanoni dont use multiple monitors (given i dont do any coding) and i like it better than those multihead setups everyone else seems to prefer06:42
ipv5maco: is their something more appropriate than compiz i should be using?06:42
glebihanwizzzzzzard: these are rules on how the channel should be used06:42
Dr_Willismarlon:  i got things im doing..... ive rarely had a sound card issue so dont expect me to be a lot of help -06:42
macoipv5: for 3d desktop?  ehh... kwin can do 3d desktop but i dont know how it handles multiple monitors for that06:42
marlonI'm not expecting anything from anyone weirdo.....You sounded like you were adding on and gave me no hint that you were finished with what you started helping me with06:43
wizzzzzzardthe only details I can find on the WPN311 regarding ubuntu date back to around 2008, so I am not sure if it's still valid to say they need madwifi06:43
marlonYOU started helping me...06:43
ipv5maco: i guess the 3d isn't essential, although i would hate to go back from at least using the gpu for compositing06:43
ipv5back to the dark ages so to speak06:44
macoipv5: heh hey i love the "dark ages" of tiling window managers ;-)06:44

glebihanwizzzzzzard: yes, googling it a bit, I found issues with this card starting from 2004...06:49
wizzzzzzardglebihan: yeah, but the last reported major bugs seem to be isolated aruond 2008, so i don't know if it's just a simple restricted driver set or if it requires something more.06:49
wizzzzzzardglebihan: that'll learn him to not buy an intel or Cisco based card06:49
sculpturedhey everyone, i'm trying to install beryl 2.1 on lucid lynx. i added the lines suggested on http://tnlessone.wordpress.com/2007/03/17/upgrading-to-beryl-020/ so that synaptic would auto update it (and i could download beryl with apt-get), but i'm getting a 403 forbidden error from beryl-project.org. what's going on?06:50
glebihanwizzzzzzard: its says here (http://georgia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=9186420) that it's supported since 9.1006:50
wizzzzzzardsculptured: beryl is extremely outdated, have you considered compiz fusion?06:50

sculpturedDr_Willis: okay, i'll look into compiz06:51
wizzzzzzardsculptured: Beryl was merged with the Fusion project and became compiz fusion, installing beryl would be pretty much putting your X system into a highly unstable state. Check out Compiz instead.06:51

glebihanpiyushmishra: you can try using "gnome-terminal --command='matlab'" as the launcher's command07:05
Dr_Willispiyushmishra:  but i cant imagine WHY that would work and not running matlib directly07:05
wizzzzzzardServerTechPro: are you using another user beyond what was set up on install, though? Cos usually your default is set sudoers authenticated... And root can be used, but you'd need to be able to access sudoers before that's an option really.07:05
petersteele111hey how do i re register my nickname again please i know there was a channel to go to07:05
wizzzzzzardServerTechPro: an unahtenticated user cannot gain access without su'ing to a user with proper permissions07:05
ServerTechProwizzzzzzard, i have many users07:05
ServerTechProwizzzzzzard, i think it is not recognising my user as an admin07:05
wizzzzzzardServerTechPro: I'd go to your first user; your initial one from install, and set your current user as admin/sudoers07:06
ServerTechProwizzzzzzard, so i need to use root to change it somehow07:06
ServerTechProbut that first user imean07:06
ServerTechPro* i mean07:06
wizzzzzzardsu - <original user from install>07:06
piyushmishraglebihan: it also keeps the terminal open07:06
ServerTechProdoes not have admin07:06

wizzzzzzardExtremeDevilz: Get a shrine of mayan gods and pray.07:06
ServerTechProone min.07:06
ServerTechProlet me try07:06
glebihanpiyushmishra: yes, if matlab needs a terminal (for some weird reason), it will stay opened as long as matlab is running07:07
ExtremeDevilzi mean you need something like chmod07:07
wizzzzzzardalright, I'm out of here07:07

petersteele111thank you im stupid tonight07:09
mkcpysSo, does anyone thing that there is a way to make my bigger monitor my primary monitor in Ubuntu aside from changing the plugs out or installing the ATI Radeon drivers?07:11
glebihanmkcpys: Can't you do this in System->Preferences->Monitors ?07:12
Dr_Willismkcpys:  alt-click on the panels and drag them over to the other monitor07:12
mkcpysNo. It doesn't give the option to change which monitor is the primary (thus, which monitor has the panels and opens windows on it by default, etc.)07:12
mkcpysDr_Willis -- What are you some kind of genius ???!!!???!!!07:13
sculpturedagain, can anyone direct me towards a good macroing program? i'd prefer something similar to autohotkey, but i'll settle for just keyboard/mouse support07:13
FriarI am trying to clean up my SSD. when I use the disk usage analyzer it says that I have used 16.5 GB and have 11.6GB available, but when I scan my filesystem, it only shows 4.9 GB of size...where is the difference coming in?07:13
mkcpysDr_Willis - I guess so, you're a doctor. Thanks. That just did it I think07:14
quiescensfriar: doesn't 16.5 - 11.6 = 4.9?07:14
quiescensoh wait07:15
quiescensnever mind, I misread07:15
quiescenswhat are you using to scan the usage or whatever07:15
FriarI'm using the disk usage analyzer in Applications -> accessories07:16
quiescensif you just mean the scan home button, that only lists the contents of your home directory07:16
Friarit is a 30GB drive with 2GB swap on it. then rest is /07:16
quiescenswhereas the initial "used" amount is overall disk usage07:16
FriarI scan the whole file system though.07:16
Dr_Willismkcpys:  i mentioned the alt-click-drag thing some time ago. :) People never listen to their doctors.07:17
Dr_Willismkcpys:  that did NOT make the monitors primary.. it just moved the  panels. You can have panels on both monitors07:18
quiescensi don't know for sure, it could be that a lot is being taken up in directories your user doesn't have direct access to07:18
Dr_Willismkcpys:  GDM will still appear on the other monitor07:18
Friarwell, I'm getting closer...I just cleared out my wife's .wine folder (we used to use rosetta stone) and that cleared out like 3.8GB. There is still quite a disparity between the 12.4 used and 15.7 availabe, and the file system scan showing that it only has 4.9 used.07:19
mkcpysDr_Willis - Sorry, I missed it.07:20
Friarmight i be missing a trash folder or something?07:20
mkcpysDr_Willis - What is GDM ?07:20
Dr_Willismkcpys:  your LOGIN screen07:20
Dr_WillisGDM/KDM/other DM's07:20
mkcpysDr_Willis - Well, that's ok.07:20
quiescensfriar: you can try alt-f2, gksudo baobab07:21
quiescenswhich should run the disk usage analyzer as root07:21
quiescensso that you can see how much is taken up, not just in files that your current user has access to07:21
FriarI see where the problem is....my wife's .local trash folder....I think.07:22
mkcpysDr_Willis I also notice that certain pop-ups still pop up on the other monitor - regardless of where their parent window is. That's slightly annoying.07:22
ServerTechProdamn, its telling some bug, it shows im an admin07:23
ServerTechProill report it07:23
quiescensthat would be why it doesn't show up for you by default, because you don't have access to other users' home directories ordinarily07:23
Friarquiescens, it doesn't show it all, but I07:23
* ExtremeDevilz is going back to windows07:24
Friar* I'll get to the bottom of it. I have a script that I run on my account that empties my trash...I'll just add my wife's to it.07:24
quiescenson an unrelated question, baobab, how did the disk usage analyzer end up being called baobab07:24
Friarand use the sudo to ge tit.07:24
Friarquiescens, ha, my wife has 7GB of trash in ~/.local/Trash!!!!07:26
FriarI just added that to my little script and everything is much better now.07:26
quiescensfriar: i've never really liked those trash cans07:26
Friarthey are so hidden. and since i only have 30GB due to cost of SSD, space is at a premium for me.07:27
Friardo you know of any other trash areas that I might be missing?07:27
quiescensdid running baobab as root not help?07:28
FriarIn my terminal i was getting errors about not being able to read the .directories in her home folder.07:28
Friarand since that is where the trash is, i couldn't read it.07:28
quiescensI don't see why it wouldn't be able to as root07:29
Friarme neither, but it didn't.07:29
Dr_Willismkcpys:  so swap cabels.. or use the ati drivers.. i cant imagine why you dont want to use the ati drivers..07:29
quiescensI guess the program doesn't work well as root07:29
quiescensat worst you can use: sudo du /07:30
quiescensbut that will be really really messy07:30
Friarquiescens, the only error i was getting was about the .gvfs folder.07:30
Friara few of the .directories showed up in the scan, but not many.07:31
iVIM2Is there anyone use ubuntu-minimal07:31
=== iVIM2 is now known as iVIM3
mkcpysDr_Willis - When I use the ATI drivers I can't figure how to stop the massive tearing in video playback. I've tried everything I could think of, and much of what others have suggested.07:31
Dr_Willismkcpys:  I dont use ati any more.. all i can suggest that if using compiz enable that 'sync to blank' option. that removed mosta ll the tearing ive seen in  my video playback07:32
=== ord_ is now known as qwm
Dr_WillisIm so used to video tearing - i rarely even notice it. in videos.. now in games.. yes. i do notice it07:32
mkcpysDr_Willis: Yeah, I've tried that. To be honest, I don't see why I need to use the drivers.07:33
quiescensfriar: actually I really don't know why it doesn't show all files when running as root07:33
=== The_Thing is now known as Sleeping_Thing
quiescens.gvfs is fine, because that's a special mount point and doesn't contain regular files as such, but it still seems to miss a lot07:34
iVIM3Is there anyone having used Ubuntu-minimal?07:34
denver__Can any one help me with getting my wireless card and driver running  my laptop dorsent have an ethernet  plug so it is being a big pain07:34
Friarquiescens, I would think that especially the .local/Trash would be one that would work.07:35
quiescensfriar: I guess the default disk usage analyzer has some sort of filtering because when I run it with gksudo it thinks /home has 4.3mb07:37
quiescensfriar: maybe it only counts files owned by the user or something07:37
billGood evening, all.  I have a (hopefully) quick question:  I just installed ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition on a server that I got from work.  It's installed just fine, but I can't seem to connect to the internet and open a web page.  I can ping google, and I'm able to use empathy to chat with another user on my network.  Has anyone seen this type of problem before?07:37
Friarquiescens, could be. whatever it is, it can be annoying.07:38
enlidoes anybody know what i need to do for fixing "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgio-2.0". i cant compile any program.07:38
Dr_Willismkcpys:  the way ati works.. in 6 mo they will remove your card from their supported drivers list.. so you wont be able to anyway07:38
Friarif I had 1TB it wouldn't be a problem, but with 30GB you have to keep things clean.07:38
billIn the network connections notification area, there are 2 arrows, one pointing up, on pointing down.07:38
inertialis it possible to see what initramfs.conf a pre-built initrd image is built with? I'm trying to put together my own initrd image for bootup07:38

Friarquiescens, thanks...looks like it is scanning everything, but not quite as easy to read the output at the buit in tool.07:41
FriarI bet if I knew more about it i could find a way to format the output of gdmap the same way that the build in analyzer does it.07:42
Dr_WillisSubCool:  and your video chipset is?07:42
SubCoolintel/ati i think07:42
quiescensi'm having a look around for alternatives anyway just because I agree its silly that the default doesn't actually show everything07:43
Dr_WillisSubCool:  you have both an ATI video card and a Intel video card?07:43
quiescensfriar: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-analyze-your-disk-usage-pattern-in-linux/07:43
quiescensa couple possibilities there07:43
SubCooli know i have intel- im just not sure if there is an ati onboard, im prettys ure there is. - Intel chipset..07:43
sillypenguinprobably dual switching in a laptop?07:43
Dr_WillisSubCool:  so you are usng an onboard video card with a PCI/whatever ati card?07:43
quiescenswith gdmap you can double click to focus on the aqua hilighted part and go down a directory at a time if that helps07:44
SubCoolno, its a laptop-. i cant remember if there is an onboard ati GPU chipset- how do i grep to find out?07:44
SubCooli looked it up online, but i just want to make sure.07:45
Dr_WillisSubCool:  'lspci'07:45
Dr_Willislspci | grep vga  (or VGA) or was it Vga ?07:45
Dr_Willisi forget the 'ignore case option' to grep.. :(07:45
Friarquiescens, in gdmap, if you double click on something it will enlarge that folder, for instance if you double click where the /home folder is, you can see the dfferent users, and can then go into their directories....actually wiht a bit of work it is cool.07:46
Dr_WillisThats why i forget it.. its too logical to rember. :)07:46
malvso have they figured out the freezing in 10.04?07:46

SubCoolit does, it just freaks out when i set it up.07:47
malvthe freezing mentioned in the forums with over 100k views and over 1000 posts07:47
quiescensfriar: most likely thumbnail caching for nautilus07:47
SubCooli havent been able to get it once07:47
Dr_WillisSubCool:  could be its a feature the open sourced ati driver dont support fully yet.07:48
SubCoolIMO it is having primary moniotr issues07:48
Friarah...I see. I guess it isn't too much...I have 150MB and so does my wife. If I can't handle useing 300MB for somthing like that, then I have bigger problems.07:48
SubCoolits trying to clone a mirror07:48
besogonIs there someone who know Samba and WINs well. I stuck in a problem with it.07:49
quiescensfriar: something like: find ~/.thumbnails -type f -atime +7 -exec rm {} \;07:49
SubCooli need to edit the xorg- i just cant find it07:49
Dr_WillisSubCool:  err.. make it..07:49
quiescenscould be useful, that one would delete any thumbnail that hasn't been accessed in 7 days07:49
besogonSubCool: try. Xorg -configure07:49
Dr_WillisSubCool:  X auto confuigrues - a Xorg.conf is normally not needed except ins pecial cases07:49
SubCooli was afraid to- i thought i could run a wizard..07:49
Dr_WillisSubCool:  my Intel laptop does 2 monitors without a xorg.conf, the nvidia systems i got have one with their twinview settings in it07:49
Friarquiescens, I think I'll take the hit on 300 MB. it isn't crazy. if things get unwieldy I'll definitely have a look at reducing the size of that folder, but for now I'm on.07:50

besogonquiescens: I know about it. I checked it properly and ping in subnet works fine but not ping through the gateway08:02

olegbI need to configure a ubuntu 10.04 installation to automaticly login as a user and I like to make sure that the user doesnt need to use any passwords to log in and operate the system. I know how to do automatic login for the account. But, the default keyring unlocking is teasing me - can anyone point me to some documentation for for doing this.08:04
ceil420Four2zero: you can use conky :) highly customizable desktop system status stuff (including cpu usage, mem usage, b/w usage, temps (with the right hardware/drivers), and much much more!)08:04
Dr_Willisolegb:  dont set a password for the default keyring.. and it wont ask08:05

Four2zeroceil420, i just need bandwidth for ubuntu-server.08:05
Four2zeroany others besides conkey ?08:05
Dr_Willisolegb:  when it asks for a password the first time. just hit enter and confirm the 'use unsafe storage' option08:05
Dr_Willisolegb:  if one is set. change  the password to be blank08:05
olegbDr_Willis: the problem then is it seems to forget the passwords for wifi networks08:05
ceil420Four2zero: i dunno, that's just the only one i've ever used08:05
quiescensbesogon: if you have multiple subnets worth you'll need to make sure that one system is used as the wins server and then use dhcp or whatever to set that system as the wins server for all the systems involved08:05
airtonixFour2zero, depends if you need to see bandwidth in use now or a history of use ?08:05
Dr_Willisolegb:  really? it rembers them here08:06

Dr_Willisolegb:  it even auto connects to the one at home. no clicking needed08:06

olegbDr_Willis: yes, could be a wifi issue - I'll try to look further into it, thanks for your help :-)08:09

besogonquiescens: class is located on interface eth0. And I have access from eth1 to eth0 fully, but in eth0 network I can see only workgroups in eth1 and ping by IP.08:10

jibsWhen I press up arrow on command line this shows > ^[[A   ?  :-P am a noob08:11
quiescensbesogon: you'll need to make it so that the dhcp relay adds on a parameter so that the systems behind it use it as a wins server08:11
jibsWhere are the previous commands ..?08:12
besogonquiescens: ubuntu can look all. and "wins support = yes" was set too.08:12
Dr_Willisjibs:  sounds liek the terminal is in some odd mode. thats  the escape keys for the arrows08:12
Dr_Willisjibs:  perhaps try 'reset' command and see if it works.08:12
quiescensbesogon: yeah, so the ubuntu box is acting as a wins server, but the rest of the systems don't technically know that08:12
Dr_Willisjibs:  you are using bash correct?08:12
jibsYup .. think so !  Dr_Willis08:13
besogonquiescens: dhcp3-relay didn't work for me (I don't know why) I use dhcp-helper. I can't change dhcp info08:13
jibsAnd how do we change back to default prompt -  "[\\u@\\h]"  , right ?08:13
besogonquiescens: may be you are right. I heard that Samba WINs and Windows Wins are not compatibe08:14
Dr_WillisMy ANNOYING nas i got - for some reason is giving an ip of  when i 'nmblookup nas'  any ideas on that? My samba-fu is weak08:14
quiescenswindows can be configured to use samba's WINS server08:15
Dr_Willisits not giving any other ip#.  unlike the other samba box;s :(08:15
quiescensbesogon: the only problem is that at the moment, if you go to one of the windows systems and type ipconfig /all in a command prompt, it will not have a WINS server listed08:15
airtonixDr_Willis, why would it be giving a broadcast address as its IP?08:15
quiescensbesogon: you need to find some way of setting that appropriately08:16
airtonixDr_Willis, I wouldn't trust that, and therefore would do an nmap ping scan of your local network to find all the machines and their IP addresses08:16
Dr_Willisairtonix:  well that first line is the broadcast..  it shoudl give a 2nd line as its ip#. its not doing that..08:17
quiescensbesogon: either by overriding it on each system individually or by having the relay change the dhcp parameters to add the WINS server08:17
airtonixDr_Willis, zenmap gui for gnome makes various nmap tasks easy08:17
quiescensbesogon: possibly other ways too, but those are the ones I can think of off-hand08:18
Dr_Willis$ nmblookup blacklaptop---> querying blacklaptop on --> blacklaptop<00>08:18
airtonixDr_Willis, yes but that relies on something in the NAS that is obviously not working properly (layer 7)08:18
Dr_Willisairtonix:  i know its ip. :) its set staically to - but its aparently not brodcasting that info when asked.08:18
enliI get error "/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgio-2.0" everytime I try to compile any program. I searched around and apparently I need to have "libgio-fam", but that is already installed. Any guesses?08:18

airtonixDr_Willis, i think nmbd and winbind are the processes that deal with advertising win names (check they are running)08:20
Dr_WillisI think smb://nas only works because i got nas in the hosts file08:20
airtonixDr_Willis, i would also investigate installing avahi in the device so you don't have to bother with WINS08:21

enliilovefairuz: Thanks, it was installed previously.. reinstallation fixed the problem. What would be the reason?08:22
Dr_Willisairtonix:  its a embeded 'thing' about the size of a deck of cards. $50 - it  cant really be tweaked like that.  (that ive seen so far)08:22
airtonixWINS is such fail.08:23
Dr_Willisairtonix:  it does have nmbd running. but i see no winbind on it.. cant even find a winbind binary on it. (yet)08:23
EmLeXmorning pepz08:23
airtonixDr_Willis, you also want to check that you're allowing all the required ports for SMB protocol to work08:23

Dr_Willisfor $50 (or less) it can share 2 usb hard drives to the LAN08:34
DagoRedAdzy: You probably have driver issue. VMware and Virtualbox have a install thing for guest additions that optimizes them for the VM. When running off the hardware directly you will need to make sure you are using the proper drivers.08:34
ilovefairuzAdzy: alt + f2, then type 'gnome-system-monitor' and check around to see what's consuming CPU or RAM08:35

frobisherIWhat is the default shell in ubuntu dash or bash?08:44
DagoRedbethebunny: Main reason is that the switch killed a lot of my own code. Also when working with languages that rely on a virtual machine or interpretor people tend to be much more reluctant to switch because they have to get the foundation for the software to work.08:44
rwwfrobisher: bash for users, dash for shell scripts that call /bin/sh.08:44

ashiswinah ok thanks rww08:46
bethebunnyDagoRed: I see, but I would have thought that the 2to3 tool would fix most of this. I recognise that many of the python3 features are implemented in python2, but there are some that are extremely hard to pass up, like set/dict comprehensions.08:46

bazhangAEONFLUX, why are you using app armor10:28
naxahi! I have a grub on my sdb5 and I have a grub on sda1. how can I make an entry to the sda1 grub to "redirect" to the sdb5 grub? please don't ask why, just help me do it, if it is possible. :) thanks10:28
justccbazhang, yeah, #mac seems fine.10:28

mheathilovefairuz: FYI, incase someone asks the same question as naxa - Grub Legacy often does NOT like to chainload Grub 2. Instead, you usually need a "kernel /boot/grub/core.img" command to boot grub 2.10:35

Bert-ellie, sorry this is a french link :(10:46
sriramomanmheath: what do u mean by manual creation of config file10:46
erUSULellie: what does « sudo rfkill list » say ?10:47
mheathsriramoman: update-grub tries to create a configuration file for Grub by guessing your harware setup. It is a limited and simple tool, and will ultimately fail unless you are booted into an environment almost identical to the environment you are aiming to boot into with Grub.10:47
sriramomanand moreover, guys, horrid part: no matter what timeout i provide in grub2 settings, if ubuntu is the only OS, safe mode option is not present and thus without any timeout it attempts to boot into default kernel:(10:47
Bert-ellie, "sudo modprobe ath5k nohwcrypt" then  "sudo sh -c "echo 'options ath5k nohwcrypt' >/etc/modprobe.d/custom-wireless.conf" then reboot (of corse without the ")10:47
Bert-doest it herlp ?10:47
ilovefairuzellie: and does 'sudo ifconfig wlan0 up && iwlist scan' shows any networks?10:48
mheathsriramoman: the tool simply doesn't know enough information to generate a configuration file for a completely different, random type of boot scenario that will depend on an external disk.10:48
sriramomanmheath: i am IN the same system, only that i am booting from an external hardisk for rescue10:48
sriramomanso does it matter, mheath10:48
Bert-ellie, check http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=982808......This10:48
mheathsriramoman: the grub configuration file, however, is a text file. You can edit it, and find the documentation on the internet that will tell you how to manually create it and edit it as required.10:49
mheathsriramoman: yes. update-grub won't work for you, if I'm understanding your situation correctly.10:49
sriramomanoh fine, mheath. if u could pls tell me the config file name alone (thats generated) then i can check documentation in internet10:50

jriberUSUL: ha11:07
jribAkiva_Abraham: yeah, just mount a different partition there or use a symlink11:08
Akiva_Abrahamjrib, I can do that in the install right?11:08
kneauxhello comrades, i have a server set up on my lan but i'm trying to use the external ip to connect to it11:09
jribAkiva_Abraham: well not the symlink method, you would create that afterwards.  The first method I said would only work for you if you plan on having a separate partition for your music11:09
kneauxthat is i can connect on 192.168.foo.bar but not on ipv4:port11:10
jribkneaux: if you have a router, they usual don't let you do that for whatever reason11:10
Akiva_Abrahamjrib: Well that is inevitable when using a different disk, isnt it? I am not planning to jbod it~11:10
kneauxreally? that was my whole plan11:11
kneauxport forwarding and such11:11
jribkneaux: I mean they don't let you access it internally (at least my verizon-provided one doesn't and I never looked into why).  People outside your lan can still get to it if you setup port forwarding and such11:11
IchatAkiva_Abraham:  -   i dont wish to be harsh but  all your questions are anwsered in the install manual..11:12

Akiva_AbrahamIchat: thats you, right?11:12
jribAkiva_Abraham: well, say you have / as your ssd and you have some other partition mounted on /notssd.  You can have a symlink for /home/aki/music to /notssd/music.  And you could also have some other stuff on that non-ssd partition this way.  Like, for example, /home/aki/docs could be a symlink to /notssd/docs, etc11:13
Akiva_Abrahamhmmm, ok thanks11:13
Dr_WillisPerhaps someday i can afford a SSD..11:14
zirodayantivirtel: kismet or netstumbler?11:15
IchatAkiva_Abraham:  - just one tip...    in the installer use manual install to partition your drives.   -    op  "/"   on  ssd     and put    /var   /tmp   swap     on   notssd11:16
antivirtelziroday they can make me some graph?!11:16
ilovefairuzkneaux: your question is ambiguous (for me at least) are you trying to make a server accessible from outside the router or to make it non-accessible ?11:16
zirodayantivirtel: not a graph, but you can use the xml output to turn it into one11:17
Akiva_AbrahamIchat besides youtube flv.... ohh is it to save data integrity? so it lasts longer?11:17
ilovefairuzkneaux: port forwarding will make it accessible to you and everyone else and should working in most cases, port knocking on the other hand will keep it "hidden" but it's not as straight forward to setyp11:17
antivirtelziroday in to one what?!11:18
zirodayantivirtel: graph11:18
ranthikneaux, keep in mind though..to port forward you will have to setup the pc with a static ip11:18
ilovefairuzkneaux_: to setup **11:18
ilovefairuzkneaux_: ranthi: not necessarily a static ip, you could use a dynamic dns service11:19
ranthiwell, i had to set mine up to be static11:19
ranthior it wouldnt even give me the option to port forward11:19
antivirtelhmm thx ziroday11:20
ranthii suppose though its not really static in a sense..more of address reservation for that mac address11:21
Dr_WillisMy router has the same feature . reserved ip based on mac.. better then 'static' ip's in ways. :)11:23
Dr_Willisi set teh wireless ip's to be at a higher range then the wired ip's that way i can tell whats connected/up/wired/wireless easier11:24
ranthii havent messed with xorg that much..i guess a little..but not as much as i should have i guess but here is my question11:24
ranthii read that ubuntu attempts to autodetect all the hardware and attached peripherals11:25
ranthiis there a program in the repositories or already with ubuntu that would let you generate an xorg.conf file based off of what was detected?11:25
Dr_Willisranthi:  actually i think its X thats doing the detection, not really a ubuntu feature. but an X feature11:26
glebihanranthi: "X -configure" generates a xorg.conf11:26
=== Low- is now known as Low-Sleepz
ranthidr and gleb, i understand..and so..will that --configure only put in the conf what was detected or a bunch of unnecessary stuff?11:27
glebihanranthi: it is then stored in "/root", so to use it, just move it to /etc/X1111:27
glebihanranthi: it should only put the necessary configuration for your hardware11:28
ilovefairuzranthi: unless you need to modify something, you don't need to generate one11:28
ranthiok, i will give it a shot and see what it puts in there..also gonna have another question about video11:28
ranthiwhich is why i want to generate one11:28
jribranthi: it's usually a better idea to just ask about what you want to accomplish in the end :)11:29
buntfalkewhich package does this file belong to?11:30
buntfalke /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/packagekit/backend.py11:30
ranthiX has to be shutdown to do configure?11:30
buntfalkeapt-file find cant find it...?11:30
oCean_buntfalke: dpkg -S /path/to/file will show11:30
buntfalkeoCean_: ah - good idea - thanks11:30
buntfalkedpkg: /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/packagekit/backend.py nicht gefunden. <-- "not found"11:30
jribbuntfalke: apt-file search packagekit/backend.py  since that file is generated...11:31
oCean_ah, yes11:31
buntfalkejrib: oh, okay. thanks.11:31
glebihanranthi: yes, or you can run it with another display, with "X -configure :1" for example11:31
ranthijrib, well..i honestly cant remember this specific command used but besides the fact i want to refamiliarize myself with things..11:31
jribranthi: k, just realize that there's really not much point in an xorg.conf these days11:32
ranthii need to verify my video is working properly with opengl11:32
glebihanjrib: by the way, do you have any idea where the configuration that used to go in xorg.conf is now located ?11:32
jribglebihan: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config11:33
bullgard4Where is the contents of the file (table) ~/.ssh/known_hosts explained?11:33
glebihanjrib: ok thanks11:34
ranthithere we go..got the conf file11:35
jribbullgard4: ssh and sshd man pages11:35
ranthialso, incase i want to do some remote admin..and because im lazy and dont want to look it up11:35
bullgard4jrib: I will have a look. Thank you.11:35
ranthiwhat is the ssh flag to run X through it so you can remote run X programs?11:36
glebihanjrib: so basically, there are no more configuration files, unless you overwrite values in xorg.conf or xorg.conf.d, right ?11:36
jribglebihan: yeah11:36
glebihanjrib: thanks, had never been able to find someone to give me a clear answer on this11:37
ranthigleb, its not really that there are no more conf files...there are always conf files if you want them..for instance11:38
ranthiif you are insane like I am and decide one day you want to slim down the kernel to only have the drivers available for your hardware11:39
ranthiyou might want to have that conf file..11:40
ariqzranthi, does that save a lot of memory?11:40
jribglebihan: well there are still a lot of files that you could call "configuration files" (like initially hal fdi files, and now I think most of the stuff has moved to udev rules), but you're right that there's no xorg.conf by default.  And as you said, you can still create an xorg.conf and configure X that way11:40
ranthiariqz, have you ever played with gentoo?  man..you can slim down that kernel to leave almost no footprint so yeah..its eventually not a bad idea11:41
Friarwhat number is drwxr-xr-x for permissions? I've changed a folder recursively to 766 and this is what it was: drwxr-xr-x.11:41
ariqzranthi, no, I haven't played with gentoo11:41
ranthibut only for an either very experienced or very crazy person11:41
FriarIt is my ~/Music folder.11:41
glebihanranthi: yes, I got that  but for most (non insane) users, there's no need to do that11:41
jribFriar: 766 is as you said.  You can use "stat" if you want the octal representation of a file's permissions for some reason11:42
ariqzranthi, you could always download the kernel source for ubuntu and compile that though :)11:42
glebihanjrib: yes, I should have a closer look at udev some time11:42
jribFriar: sorry, that's wrong.  What you wrote is 75511:42

Werner_ok. My problem is that one of my drives in my mdadm raid 5 array (ubuntu server ofcourse) is failing. I checked in smartctl which basicly said that the drive will die in 24 hours. Now mdadm is resyncing currently. and all drives are active in the array, I want to avoid potential problems and simply mark that drive as failed and remove it from the array so i can later replace it. Is it safe to mark a drive failed during resync?11:45

ubottus-visor: Hi! Welcome to #ubuntu! Feel free to ask questions and help people out. The channel guidelines are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines . Enjoy your stay!12:01
sprungmbn_18, i think you are confusing hardware RAID and having a hot-swappable backplane or something. hardware raid is hardware raid.12:01
mbn_18sprung: All the cheap raid cards are kind software raid12:01
Werner_sprung: mbn_18: there's dmraid which is crappy software raid on hardware. and theres mdadm pure software raid which you can move to every computer. hardware raid is almost always faster but not neccesarily better12:01
mbn_18sprung: go ask #linux-raid12:02
Werner_dmraid -> fakeraid12:02
sprungmbn_18, you're having a fundamental misunderstanding.12:02
sprungmbn_18, Werner_ explains it almost like i would say it12:02
sprungonly i would say lol @ your crappy software raid12:02
ergheziglebihan: but when i enter manual, program run correctly without any crash12:02
sprungdo not want12:02
glebihanerghezi: yes, that's because the gnome panel is loaded and ready12:03
Imamihey guys? I have problem with updating my sources on 10.04 :(12:03
glebihanerghezi: try the timeout thing, I think it should work12:03
Dr_Williserghezi:  some applications need a delay befor they get 'autostarted' for example the conky faq/guides mention about a 15 sec delay befor starting conky12:03
mbn_18Bottom line as I undestand this. the cheap "hardware raid cards" are actualy software. though again, ask at #linux-raid12:03
sprungmbn_18, if it is something that you can actually touch, and its sole function is RAID, that's called "hardware" therefore it's a hardware RAID12:04
Dr_Willisso a single chip raid. that has a 3000mb driver file to do the actial raid... :) is the same as a raid system that dosent need any drivers?12:05
sprungsoftware RAID is this crappy idea where somebody thought they could make the buggy linux filesystem (at the time) redundant, further complicating the issue if there is a problem12:05
Dr_WillisIm thinking this raid ramblings may need to go to #linux-raid soon12:05
mbn_18Dr_Willis: First ill fix my fglrx problem then ill continue this debate :)12:06
sprungDr_Willis, your raid question was too vague to answer, and i suspect was intentionally so12:07
Dr_Willisyou got your hard-raid, semi-hard-raid and then theres the soft-raid like cheeses ?12:07
Dr_WillisIll shut up now.12:08

sprungDr_Willis,  are you drunk?12:08
glebihanDr_Willis: that may have been quite offtopic :)12:08
Dr_Willissprung:  actually im snacking on some chedder cheese. Im not sure what you are thinking about.12:08
castsprung: how would software RAID make a buggy FS redundant?12:08
sprungcast, you missed the point12:09
castwhat is your point?12:09

andreasWondering, is there a way to install Ubuntu into an existing LV  (the PVs are all crypted volumes)?12:57
=== andreas is now known as yacc
castyacc: yes.12:57
yacccast, how?12:57
castall the magic happens in initrd12:57
yacccast, no I mean I need to install it into an EXISTING volume group12:58
yacccast, I do know that Ubuntu supports encrypted LVM setups, the problem is that I ve managed for whatever reason to trash my root filesystem.12:58
castan install is just a set of files, you can pretty much just extract a tarball and it'll suffice to 'install'12:58
yacccast, yeah but how do I get the tar file?12:59
yacccast, or how do I get the installer to install into an already mounted filesystem?12:59
castwell, nowdays you'd use debootstrap :)12:59
yacccast, well, I feared that, debootstrap does only the package install, but I have to do all the other stuff like GRUB myself?13:00
glaucousDo anyone have NVIDIA GTX 460 (or any other 4xx card), and know if it is possible to downclock in the newest drivers?13:01
castaye, but thats easy13:01
yacccast, well I ve never personally made the mental jump from LILO to GRUB :)13:02
yaccI guess my root filesystem is shoot good, with /usr/bin having migrated to lost+found, ...13:05
LjL... :<13:06
