xoveralraune,  ran it, what am i looking for? fans?00:00
madch0zk thx yall00:00
al__whats the notation to "allow" all addresses in range 192.168.1.x ?00:00
alraunexover: it should have found some modules, you first have to load00:00
jribal__: we need some context...00:00
xoveralraune, it found the cpu and gpu, i have applet that shows my temps on the toolbar on my desktop00:00
th0ral__: :
alraunexover: also (for next reboot) they got to be in /etc/modules00:01
al__jrib: its for a for a firewall00:01
kneauxglebihan, cool, all finished. Now I just need to figure out how to run an 386 package on x64. idletask said something about linux32, but I get:00:01
al__th0r: why 24?00:01
kneauxNote, selecting util-linux instead of linux3200:01
kneauxutil-linux is already the newest version.00:01
th0ral__: because you are only considering the first 24 bits of the 32 bit ip address00:01
pwnthow to log in00:01
glebihankneaux: won't be able to help you there, running on i38600:02
alraunexover: sudo modprobe NameOfModule to get them to the kernel,  where NameOfModule is the name(s) sensors-detect found00:02
al__i think i need to read up on bits and ip addresses....00:02
idletaskkneaux: the syntax is: linux32 your32bitbinaryhere00:02
xoveralraune, those modules have been there since june when i installed the OS00:02
xoverit just added the same module again00:03
glebihanwell, think I played enough for tonight, need some sleep now, have fun all !00:03
al__so what does allow?00:04
th0ral__: the same thing00:04
kneauxidletask: i don't have a command "linux32"00:04
prajul_alraune:bye thanks very much00:04
kneauxidletask, just kidding, i do. hold on00:04
idletaskkneaux: that's strange, since it's part of util-linux00:04
fenn_how can i get gdm working after lucid upgrade?00:04
xoveralraune, how can i tell at what temperature the fans will increase and to what rpm?00:05
kneauxidletask, I'm getting "permission denied"00:05
xoveris 80 80 80 degrees bad?00:05
al__th0r: is is somethign to do with the fact that each number in .xxx is a bit, and each bit is 8 bytes, thus 3 x 8 = 24?00:05
xoverfans are sat at 2000rpm00:05
idletaskkneaux: does your 32bit binary have execute permissions?00:06
th0ral__: not quite...you do need to read up on bits and bytes00:06
al__th0r: got the bits and bytes the wrong way around but you know what I mean00:06
th0ral__: yes, that is about it, the first three sets of 8 bits are processed, the fourth set of 8 is ignored00:07
xoveralraune,  I have this is messages00:07
xoverACPI: If an ACPI driver is available for this device, you should use it instead of the native driver00:07
alraunexover: as said, I have low experince with aplle; seems they got a SMC-Chip , and ubuntu has an applesmc-driver, but to be honest, I never worked with it00:07
kneauxidletask, good point. one second...00:07
pwntwinblows fail me again, going back on ubuntu! brb ;-)00:07
al__th0r: so does that style of notation allow you to be more specific, lets say you just wanted to allow - 192.168.100?00:07
thune3bobo123: i'm not 100%, but for ubuntu setup,I beleive you can create a file say /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02custom , and put two lines 'APT::Install-Recommends "false";' and 'APT::Install-Suggests "false";' to make this the default behavior00:07
al__that last set should be
idletaskal__: no, that won't do it, there's no power of 2 range that would exactly cover 1 to 10000:08
* h-bomb wishes that xchat would be update on the repos00:08
kneauxidletask, now i get:00:08

newbuntuHello all.  I'm still struggling with a dual-boot installation on a laptop.  I've freed a big chunk of space on the internal drive, but the installer says it's "unusable," and the utility I used to free the space won't initialise it - saying something about there being no slots in the MBR.  i wonder if the fact that the installer previously overwrote the Win7 boot loader in the MBR with GRUB00:09
newbuntuhas something to do with the problem.00:09

drewbertHi guys, I was wondering if anybody had a solution for getting hibernate in 10.04 working with the nvidia drivers.00:10
drewbertThe first page of google was not helpful.00:10
niteshadeit plays on its own tho.  Could anyone help me with this?00:10
* idletask avoids proprietary drivers like the plague they are00:10
drewbertIn fact, hibernate does not work for me even with the free nv driver.00:10
idletaskdrewbert: the nv driver never has had proper power management, use nouveau00:11
idletasknouveau _has_ PM support00:11
drewbertUsing the main menu hibernate, s2disk, or hibernate-disk.  None of them work.00:11
drewbertI'll try novoue00:11
FloodBot4drewbert: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.00:11
kneauxidletask, package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)00:11
thune3newbuntu: msdos partition format allows 4 primary partitions, where one primary partition can be "extended", and can have 4 (i think) paritions inside that. I'm guessing you are trying to make a 5th primary partition.00:11
idletaskkneaux: ah yeah, now I remember this is a deep flaw in the .deb format - which RPM doesn't have00:12
newbuntuthune3: Well, I did, but I think I fixed that problem already.00:12
idletaskkneaux: you may want to try and extract it by hand somewhere, and ensure you have a 32bit glibc and libs installed00:12
alraunexover: fo that message make sure it's enabled in bios (acpi) and check dmesg  /var/log/syslog  for additional hints00:12
kneauxidletask, what are the package names?00:13
newbuntuthune3: The "Partition Wizard" (Windoze) utility I used let me convert two partitions to what it calls "logical," which I assume is the same as "extended."00:13
funkiwanrsync question: i'm getting a "Permission denied (13)" error attempting to rsync my hard drive. i've narrowed down the problem to my ~/.gvfs directory, but I'm rsync'ing using sudo. Also, I'm using the -x flag, which i thought should prevent attempts to copy mounted directories, which ~/.gvfs appears to be. Anyone have any ideas? Link to command output here: http://ubuntu.pastebin.com/Puic3T1G00:13
idletaskkneaux: a quick Google search indicates that ia32-libs would install the basic ones00:13
newbuntuthune3: So now there are two physical, two logical partitions, plus the unallocated space.00:13
idletaskI'm not fluent with apt* commands, I'm an RPM and Gentoo person00:14

niteshadeit plays on its own tho.  Could anyone help me with this?00:14
crazy2bescottj: If it's a binary, it should happen automatically00:14
xoveralraune, I have no BIOS, it uses EFI and its not accessible00:14
idletaskkneaux: and there's a --force-architecture option to dpkg, it seems00:14
xoveryou get this stupid grey sceen, you cannot change any settings pre bootloader00:15
kneauxidletask, already have ia32-libs00:15
thune3newbuntu: right, the "extended" partition contains "logical" partitions. You would need to pastebin the output of "fdisk -l" or other parition information, in order to see what your issue is.00:15
scottjcrazy2be: if what's a binary? I have two versions of murrine installed, one in /usr and one in /usr/local00:15
alraunexover: hehe, my apple-knowledge... better ask again for someone else running a macbook, sorry00:15
idletaskkneaux: dpkg --force-architecture the.deb would seem to do the trick00:15
idletaskkneaux: but you'll need to ldd the executable after install00:16
alraunekneaux: there you go.: http://tinyurl.com/327drec , and again, which package ??00:16
newbuntuthune3:  There's something else going on.  I'm running in Windoze mode now - any info I can collect that might be useful in diagnosing the problem you can think of?00:16

ScribbleJI've been in here for a half hour, elitexray, and I don't know what your video driver issue is.01:14
JantireWhat does one suggest in the area of databases01:14
artin123How can I show all accounts using getent passwd, but without all the extra information? I just want to see the account names01:14
ScribbleJJantire, that depends a lot on your needs... but postgresql does rock.01:15
JantireAnd eventually it would be a rather large database01:15
Cmdr_W_T_Rikerglaucous: are you sure that ~/ will point to the right location, as this is probably run as root01:15
idletaskglaucous: there's one star too much01:15
elitexrayI have a problem with getting a visual on my games during start up running on wine.01:15
elitexrayTheres audio but no visual01:15
=== lulz is now known as Cream
idletaskglaucous: and what's more, kate is a graphical program, it cannot be launched via cron01:15
ScribbleJelitexray, what makes you think that's a video driver issue?01:16
elitexrayThat's as far as my knowledge goes.01:16
douglI am running ubuntu 9.04 I believe and I had it config'd for long time and it had firefox installed an compiz effects working after a recent partial update firefox is missing and compiz is not working... does anyone know why this windows like behavior is manifesting itself?01:16
bazhangelitexray, that's a problem with wine games  try #winehq01:16
elitexrayI've been told the same thing, I've been to winehq01:16
elitexraythey cant help01:16
bazhang!appdb | elitexray and check this01:16
ubottuelitexray and check this: The Wine Application DB is a database of applications and help for !Windows programs that run under !WINE: http://appdb.winehq.org - Join #winehq for application help01:16
ScribbleJSounds like a wine issue.  Wine is tricky and personally I keep a copy of Windows around just for the games.01:16
glaucousidletask: Oh, and what about a command that requires root (and is run as user), will there pop up a sudo terminal, or it won't display anything?01:17
elitexrayI give up01:17
ScribbleJGood idea.01:17
elitexrayYeah thanks01:17
soreaudougl: 'a recent partial update'?01:17
idletaskglaucous: it will never display anything, cron doesn't have the necessary environment and/or file descriptors to achieve what you want - or maybe if you pass DISPLAY to it and do xhost +localhost, then that may work01:18
idletaskBut no guarantee01:18
elitexrayUbuntu is lacking professionals01:18
idletaskglaucous: try that with the at command first01:18
douglsoreau, yes got message from system saying only partial up date was available so I did partial update - system dl 150 or so packages and requested restart01:18
glaucousidletask: Alright, no need. All my commands are text based.01:18
bazhang!attitude | elitexray01:18
ubottuelitexray: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines01:18
glaucousidletask: That just means I have to run it as root01:18
Jordan_Unewbuntu2: I can't tell for sure from that screenshot but I'm guessing that the problem is that the free space is not within your extended partition, and you've run out of primary partitions.01:18
=== HEADSHOT is now known as HEADSHOT|afk
glaucousidletask: The crontab jobs01:19
idletaskglaucous: what are you trying to achieve exactly anyway?01:19
soreaudougl: Hm, hopefully that wasn't a dist-upgrade01:19
douglsoreau, how can I tell?01:19
glaucousidletask: Backup scripts to run every day/week etc. Some for some reason require sudo, otherwise the fail (even when reading, which is odd)01:19
soreaudougl: Check that firefox is installed, run apt-get update/upgrade and make sure it returns without error. For your compiz issue, pastebin your X log to pastebin.com01:19
douglsoreau, synaptic says firefox is installed01:20
will_Hi. Running xubuntu on an older machine (P4/512MB). Moving around any of the windows (like Firefox) cause a bit of CPU usage and the window is a big laggy to move. Is this a CPU or video card bound thing?01:20
idletaskHow do I list the files in a package at the command line, please?01:20
bazhangwill_, ram more likely01:20
victorhugohi, i'm using auctex to edit my latex files. but, the indentation is not working well. E.g.: auctex does not indent \sections from subsections. Is there a way to do that?01:21
idletaskglaucous: well, consider that some files you want to read may indeed not be readable by a normal user, and/or some directories not traversable01:21
ScribbleJwill, check the output of "top" in a terminal while you're moving the windows... if it's a CPU issue you'll see it there.  Or use any GUI based cpu monitor I suppose.01:21
soreaudougl: Well my guess is that it was a failed dist-upgrade. You better concentrate on backing up any important data in the event you will need to perform a fresh install01:21
will_bazhang: Hmm... ok. Going to get it upgraded to 1.5GB (the max of the system... just waiting on my ebay purchase... :)01:21
Jordan_Uidletask: dpkg -L package01:22

aeon-ltdwill_: what gpu?01:22
idletaskJordan_U: thanks01:22
Jordan_Uidletask: You're welcome.01:22

will_aeon-ltd:  VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 65x/M650/740 PCI/AGP VGA Display Adapter01:22
aeon-ltdwill_: just wondering, how much did you spend on the ram?01:22
bazhangwill_, xubuntu is not that much lighter than ubuntu; lubuntu is though, by quite a margin (lubuntu-desktop to try)01:23
* h-bomb is away: I'm busy01:23
nabin_raji have a problem, i changed my desktop with the compiz configuration settings manager . but after i shutdown my laptop.....the settings are no longer there, when i check the compiz manager again ..... then it is all there and i cannot use it again01:23
will_aeon-ltd: $22+5 shipping, DDR RAM 2x51201:23
idletaskWhy won't KVM work, and why is virt-manager written in python? :(01:23
glaucousidletask: Yeah I guess. just seems a bit odd that some files are not readable. I can understand readonly, but what harm can reading do?01:23
Jordan_Uwill_: It's CPU bound, but only because SiS cards are notoriously bad WRT linux support.01:23
soreaudougl: I don't know about your firefox issue but if you pastebin your X log from /var/log/Xorg.0.log to pastebin.com I could look and see what's wrong with your graphics drivers01:23
aeon-ltdwill_: to go further on what bazhang said, openbox on top of a ubuntu cli/server install is even lighter than xu/lubuntu01:23
will_Jordan_U: So if I got an AGP ATI or nVidia card, it should be better?01:24
aeon-ltdwill_: already paid?01:24
nabin_raji would be so happy if somebody could help me01:24
Jordan_Uwill_: Yes.01:24
soreaunabin_raj: Enable the effects in gnome-appearance-properties?01:24
will_aeon-ltd: yep01:24
bazhangwill_, there is lubuntu-core as well if you wish to not use openbox or HAL01:24
idletaskglaucous: well, it's not harmless, and some files normal users just have no point in reading, so it is as well they cannot read them01:24
will_Jordan_U: How about a matrox card?01:24
Jordan_Uwill_: From what I remember those are pretty abismal in linux as well.01:24
douglsoreau, I dont thinks is a driver issue compiz no longer starts.... I still get my nvidia splash screen when starting x01:24
will_Jordan_U: Ok. ATI or nVidia is better? So many choices heh01:25
aeon-ltdwill_: not sure about sis support, but i think you could've saved that $22, just by looking into alternative software or distro versions, but meh more ram couldn't hurt in the long run01:25
nabin_rajsoreau: so how do i do that01:25
will_bazhang: aeon-ltd: alright, I'll also look into those as well. :)01:25
soreaudougl: Did you try re-enabling it in the visual effects tab and save your session by clicking Remember Currently Running Application in sys>prefs>startup programs>options tab?01:26
soreaunabin_raj: ^^01:26
will_aeon-ltd: Eh... more RAM isn't a bad thing hehe01:26
idletaskOK, other command line question: I have a package name, how do I know its installed version?01:26
soreaudougl: nabin_raj: sys>prefs>appearance>visual effects tab01:26
* idletask only just starts with dpkg/apt and friends01:26
Jordan_Uwill_: If you don't mind proprietary drivers then nvidia is generally better, especially with older cards.01:26
will_Jordan_U: Don't mind :) Ok, I'll look into that one. Thanks! :)01:27
Jordan_Uidletask: apt-cache policy package01:27
Jordan_Uwill_: You're welcome.01:27
idletaskpolicy? To know the installed _versions_?01:27
idletaskHow logical is that?01:27
Jordan_Uidletask: It gives other information as well as just the currently installed version.01:29
idletaskJordan_U: that works, but I've found dpkg -l01:29
idletaskwhose output is equally confusing :/01:29
idletaskIs there an equivalent of rpm -q?01:29
idletaskOr even better, rpm -q --qf01:30
douglsoreau, sys>prefs>appearance>visual effects message comes after some activity saying cannot enable effects01:30
bazhangidletask, what does those signify01:30
drewbertI hate xorg.conf problems.01:30
idletaskbazhang: rpm -q pkgname will show pkgname-version-release01:30
nabin_rajsoreau: :) :) :) thanks a lot01:31
idletaskbazhang: as to rpm -q --qf, an example is rpm -q --qf "%{version}.%{arch}\n" pkgname will show version.arch only as an output01:31
drewbertmaybe I should reinstall nvidia drivers and restore backup xorg.conf and say to hell with hibernate.01:31
glaucousidletask: Ah, this is the reason it wasn't working correctly. crontab didn't recognize the file in /home/user/bin/<script> properly, I had to write out the whole path01:31
idletaskVery, very convenient01:31
soreaudougl: Pastebin the output of 'compiz --replace' from your terminal to pastebin.com01:31
idletasksoreau: isn't there wgetpaste on ubuntu?01:32
drewbertSo I have two cards in my system, with 2 monitors attach to one of the them, no monitors attached to the other.  They are both geforce 9500gt's.  My xorg.conf is fubar and I'm trying to get hibernate to work.01:33
soreauidletask: I don't know or care01:33
bazhangidletask, apt-cache showpkg package ? something like that?01:33
drewbertDoes anyone have any suggestions.  configurations created by xorg -configure and w/ the low graphics reconfigure utility uses do not work01:33
idletasksoreau: well, "Pastebin the output of 'compiz --replace' from your terminal to pastebin.com" becomes "compiz --replace|wgetpaste"01:33
bazhangidletask, pastebinit01:34

douglsoreau, http://pastebin.com/ZjBaeTsT is log file for x start up...01:34
idletaskbazhang: OK, I figured out there should be something like that01:34
xoverwhat would that prove?01:35
bazhangidletask, I'd suspect that somewhere in apt-cache would be the answer for the rpm -q01:35
soreaudougl: You have the nvidia driver installed and in use but using the X.org glx module. Try reinstalling the nvidia glx module to restor it01:35
alraunexover: if temperature-guided steering works or not01:35
Jordan_Uidletask: man dpkg-query, specifically the -f option.01:36
xoveralraune, so i should set the manual setting?01:36
soreauIdleOne: You are free to do support however you want. I do not choose to tell anyone to use wgetpaste or similar programs01:36
douglsoreau, how do I do that? and http://pastebin.com/TdeiNEi8 is my compiz --replace output01:36

alexandernstI think that there is a really big security hole in 8.04, or maybe I'm wrong...01:39
alexandernstsudo -k && echo "fakepassword" | sudo -p "" -S bash -c 'whoami > output' > /dev/null && cat output01:39
alexandernstThis will print "root", but it shouldn't! Why is the 'whoami' ran with su privileges when I didn't gave it my real root password?01:39
=== hsr is now known as iop
bazhangalexandernst, you enabled root?01:39
iopHow can i have old feeds of a RSS in Akregator?01:40
alexandernstbazhang: what do you mean?01:40
bazhangalexandernst, there is sudo by default, only01:40
andrewfreeanyone used ffmpeg server before?01:40
alexandernstbazhang: yeah, I can do sudo. I mean, I can do sudo su in console01:40
bazhangalexandernst, so the security breach was by enabling root yourself then?01:41
victorhugoalexandernst: I tried it here, and I got "Sorry, try again.Sorry, try again.Sorry, try again. sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts"01:41
iopDoes anyone uses Akregator?01:41
alexandernstbazhang: the point is that with the command that I pasted, the 'whoami' command shouldn't be ran with root privileges.01:41
alexandernstvictorhugo: Yeah, same error on latest arch01:41
bazhangalexandernst, you shouldn't enable root01:41
alexandernstvictorhugo: but on what version are you?01:41
victorhugoUbuntu 10.0401:42
snxsso anyone ?01:42
douglsoreau, uh-oh... what did I do... used synaptic to install (re install) nvidia-glx and restarted x and now every thing is huge and does not fit on my monitor?01:42
bazhangalexandernst, sudo -i for a root shell01:42
victorhugoalexandernst: Ubuntu 10.0401:42
Jordan_Ualexandernst: You shouldn't even be able to pipe a password to sudo.01:42
alexandernstbazhang: Once again, sudo -k will timeout all root sessions, and then sudo must ask the password again01:42
soreaudougl: Probably means it worked. Can you pastebin your X log again now?01:42
alexandernstI invite you all to test that on a vbox with 8.0401:42
alexandernstJordan_U: why not?01:42
douglsoreau, ok = sec01:43
drewbertopen source drivers hate me :-(01:43

alexandernstvictorhugo: Do you have a vbox with 8.04?01:44

drewbertsoreau: do I type in something other than Driver "nouveau" if I want to use the nouveau driver for a geforce9500 ?01:46
soreaudougl: It's using the vesa driver because you managed to uninstall the nvidia driver. See if 'gksu jockey-gtk' can help01:46
will_Ah. Openbox is the new blackbox...01:46
Paddy_NIiop, you would really be better of asking on #kubuntu or #kde01:46
victorhugoPaddy_NI: No, why? hahah01:46
Paddy_NIvictorhugo, hehe01:46
soreaudrewbert: Oh yea, nouveau isn't that great because nvidia does not release their hardware specs for their gpus01:47
soreaudrewbert: So they have to reverse engineer the driver which is extremely difficult and possibly yielding poor results01:47
soreaudrewbert: But they still are working on it and it's getting better01:47

soreaudrewbert: If you have no xorg.conf, it should pick the nouveau driver for nvidia hardware by default01:48
iopPaddy_NI: Yeah right.01:48
soreaudrewbert: also a newer kernel and xorg-edgers repo will help get you latest nouveau driver bits01:48
alexandernstJordan_U: Anyways, this is already fixed, I tried it in my arch (updated yesterday) and I get an error.01:48

drewbertsoreau: I'm up-to-date w/ synaptic01:48
alexandernstJordan_U: but yeah...if victorhugo confirms it, that would be an epic fail01:49
soreaudrewbert: To update nouveau, you have to update the kernel and userspace. Newer than what is in synaptic01:49
drewbertsoreau: do you think that will save me and that this isn't just an xorg.conf misconfiguration?01:49

alexandernstJordan_U: It's a default installation. I haven't touched anything01:50
soreaudougl: That's because you don't have an nvidia modalias packages installed01:50

idletaskViking667: at the command line, I don't know, but audacity has it all (althought using it only to merge two files is like using a firehose to fill a glass, admittedly)02:06
aeon-ltdiop: just try a complete removal then a reinstall, see if it helps02:06

aeon-ltdiop: ok, go to your home directory, show hidden files, delete any dot folder that contains xchat-gnome data02:07
iopaeon-ltd: I've done that as well :)02:07
nogolol, remove xchat?02:07
aeon-ltdiop: hmmm. any other apps do this?02:07
iopaeon-ltd: No02:07

yayoHello Ubuntu, first time using irc.02:09
aeon-ltdiop: really not even a package update?02:09
ubottuyayo: 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!02:09
yayowhat the heck is for people02:09
Izinucsyayo: It work!!!02:09
soreauiop: Did you try running any offending app from your terminal and look for any interesting messages?02:09
yayomy bad i meant to say what is this for02:09
iopaeon-ltd: I do that once a month02:10
Izinucsyayo: tech support here.02:10
iopsoreau: er...huh?02:10
yayoany body know java programming on here?02:10
soreauiop: You said xchat crashes sometimes right after you start it, right?02:10
iopsoreau: Yes02:10
aeon-ltdiop: what about running as root, does it still happen?02:10
=== Quutar|AWAY is now known as Quutar
nogorm -rf .xchat02:11
Izinucsiop: don't run xchat as root02:11
iopaeon-ltd: using sudo02:11
aeon-ltdIzinucs: we are just testing if it launches02:11
iopaeon-ltd: using gksudo?02:11
soreauiop: So run 'xchat' in your terminal and look for any interesting output after it crashes02:11
aeon-ltdiop: yes try, but don't join any channel02:11
Izinucsiop: better to use nogo 's suggestion..02:11
iopno i won't remove xchat02:12
nogoi amusing xchat02:12
Izinucsiop: actually it's rm -rf ~/.xchat02:12
iopoh... that i have done already02:12
nogouninstall it then reinstall it02:12
Izinucsiop: the line I gave you doesn't remove xchat it just looses the configuration file in your home directory.. on the next launch it get's recreated automatically02:12
nogosynaptic can help you to remove xchat then reinstall it02:13
iopIzinucs: I have done that.. read aeon-ltd and mine conversation02:13
=== root is now known as Guest74552
Guest74552Hello iop02:13
iopThe guest is root here02:13
iopaeon-ltd: yes working02:14
soreauiop: Did you rm -rf ~/.xchat to reset all xchat settings to default?02:14
Izinucsiop: sorry wasn't following earlier.. do you have xchat or xchat-gnome installed?  if it's the gnome version, uninstall and install the other version..02:14
iopsoreau: Yes02:14
soreauiop: Did you run xhat in your terminal and look for any interesting message?02:14
aeon-ltdiop: you can close the root session now02:14
iopaeon-ltd: Done02:15
iopsoreau: Yes02:15
soreauiop: Oh yes, don't run it as root02:15
iopsoreau: done02:15
nogoha ha, who the hell is using the root account to use xchat?02:15
aeon-ltdnogo: it was a test02:15
soreauiop: Now if you run any user program as root one time, it can mess up your permissions in ~/ so the program may not be able to write to disk02:16
soreauiop: So make sure to remove ~/.xchat since running it as root02:16
soreauiop: Then run xchat in your terminal as your regular user02:16
iopsoreau: Yes// i was expecting some one to say that... Done that before:)02:16
soreauiop: Look for any interesting output messages in the terminal if there's any problems02:16
Viking667Izinucs: haven't tried yet, as it's probably easier to work with wave files in my case.02:17
iopsoreau: No problems02:17
soreauiop: So it's fixed?02:17
IzinucsViking667: should work for both02:17
Viking667Izinucs: but thanks for that.02:17
iopsoreau: No its not.. no message in terminal02:17
soreauiop: but still crashes?02:17
aeon-ltdiop: ok, watch top while opening it, and check if any other process gets spawned prior to xchat being killed02:17
iopsoreau: At times... till now its running02:17
Viking667I'm a bit wary of what certain programs will do, I don't know their behaviour when presented with mulitple wave headers (as I would get just using cat)02:17
* Viking667 tries anyhow02:18
soreauiop: So it was crashing randomly then..?02:18
IzinucsViking667: worth a shot..02:18
douglsoreau, manually installed Nvidia drivers and all is well now - and thanks for your help again :)02:18
iopaeon-ltd: I use sudo with system activity on.. no other process execpt threeads of xchat start02:18
iopsoreau: Quite so02:18
Izinucsiop: you might consider checking out irssi .. a cli based irc client.. very popular.. good backup for you02:19
soreaudougl: did it somehow magically fix your firefox issue?02:19
iopIzinucs: I did that after xchat gave problems02:19
douglsoreau, nope... now what did I do to fix that... I think remove firefox then install it again with synaptic package manager02:20
Izinucsiop: good.. if you run screen before starting irssi you can get to it from CTRL+alt+F2 (tty) if your gui bombs..02:20
iopIzinucs: soreau: aeon-ltd: nogo:Paddy_NI:  Now what?02:20
soreaudougl: ok02:20
soreauiop: You said it's not crashing anymore02:20
iopsoreau: It is02:21
soreauiop: so maybe resetting the settings fixed it already02:21
iopsoreau: No.02:21
nogoiop, launch your synaptic in your manual02:21
soreauiop: So when it crashes, what does it output in the terminal?02:21
nogoiop, it's time to remove some default garbage carefully now02:21
iopnogo: like?02:22
iopnogo:  from /tmp?02:22
Ratty_sudo has stopped using my current user settings. e.g. 'sudo vim' doesn't use ~/.vimrc. Any ideas what could cause this?02:22
nogoiop, this question can be answered by yourself02:22
aeon-ltdRatty_: root has its own settings02:23
iopnogo:  Done!02:23
aeon-ltdRatty_: hence why it has its own ~/02:23
nogoiop, nice02:23
kallethhey, i have a new system with an ATI 5870 AND an ATI 3450 graphics card, but the CCC is only picking up one of the cards. How do i enable both cards and hence drive my quad monitor setup ?02:23
Ratty_But it didn't used to work that way02:23
kallethanyone know? :p;02:23
iopnogo:  That was crazy? Are you a newbie?02:23
Ratty_Bit crap if everyone has to use the same settings02:23
aeon-ltdRatty_: yes it did02:23
Ratty_Nope, because my other box doesn't work that way02:24
aeon-ltdRatty_: it can be, universal settings are usually in /etc02:24
nogoiop, maybe, i am younger than you02:24
Ratty_Seems an update caused 'sudo' to change $HOME to /root rather than preseve the current users02:24
iopnogo:  (This may go off topic)02:25
nogoha ha02:25
iopsoreau: I??02:25
lahwranwhat is a way to send a mouse click event from the command line to Xorg?02:25
soreauiop: I asked you what the output is when the program crashes while you're running it from your terminal. You said <iop> Argggggggggggg. I have a feeling that was not the output02:26
iopsoreau: No that was not :)02:26
soreauiop: So I'm still waiting for a valid answer02:26
iopsoreau: Well, it never crashed with terminal open02:27
Quutarwith ubuntu 10.10 desktop... I have two displays :0.0 and :0.1 and using the nvidia restricted drivers... how can i limit the gui (and the kayboard/mouse) to :0.1 but still keep the second monitor (:0.0) running so an app like mplayer can display on it?02:27
bazhangQuutar, #ubuntu+1 for that02:27
soreauiop: Well you need to tell us important details like that. Otherwise we can't help you.02:27
iopsoreau: Haven't i? You seem to be extending subtle things02:28
soreauiop: You could help yourself by giving more information. You are being pretty vague overall02:28
soreau! details | iop02:28
ubottuiop: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."02:28
IzinucsQuutar: perhaps with a custome /etc/X11/xorg.conf.. but I wouldn't know how to design it.02:28
soreauiop: In this case, you need to tell when it crashes, how long the program runs for, if it's random or not, if it only happens when you run it from your menu etc etc etc02:29

guysguywindows or linux'?02:35
bazhangguysguy, not here. and thats not appropriate02:35
guysguyok gotya b02:35
soreautcm5025: might be a problem with the default graphics driver. Which gpu is it and when does it black out exactly?02:36
guysguyno infoi st start?02:36
melfyanyone got virtualbox experience with ubuntu server?  #vbox is ghost town atm02:36
tcm5025it blacks out right after the ubuntu logo comes up with the loading dots02:36
tcm5025that's the farthest i've gotten at all02:36
soreauIdleOne: Perhaps you should focus on more of the problematic group02:36
melfyi need to get nginx/thin working under host only for road trips (where bridge isnt available) :/02:36
Izinucsmelfy: there's some very good how to's on their site in the docs.. basically setting up vbox for headless02:36
guysguywhich ver ubuntu koala?02:36
tcm5025it did that consistantly when i tried to run the regular installer02:36
dougielsoreau, ok - looking there does not seem too intuative... :(02:36
tcm5025so i got the alternate installer02:36
tcm5025and it installed02:36
tcm5025but same issue when i try to boot02:37
tcm5025blank cursor comes up, text flashes, ubuntu logo flashes, blank screen02:37

Jordan_Utcm5025: What graphics card?02:38
MickyHi, I am trying to acces my music folder on ubuntu 10.04 from my other computer with W. Xp but I am not being able02:38
bazhangguysguy, then use his nick in your response please02:38
tcm5025the new version, not the beta though02:38
soreaudougiel: Enabling the plugin should allow for middle-click-on-desktop to work. Then to configure scroll-on-desktop-to-switch vps, set ccsm->Viewport Switcher->Desktop-based Viewport Switching->Move Next/Move Prev to Button4/Button5 respectively02:38
Izinucsmelfy: you have to enable the remote client access which isn't enabled by default.. once enabled it's typically on port 3386 using vrdp02:38
MickyI can see the folder, but I can't open it02:38
guysguy o am new to this02:38
tcm5025i forget the version number02:38
guysguy\tcm koal or  guess the higher vers02:38
tcm5025graphics card is old integrated02:38

tcm5025Intel® Extreme 2 Graphics02:39
tcm5025that's what it says02:39
kallethtcm5025: i had that issue with my ATI card02:39
guysguyok will do soory cats , \ia m new to this02:39
kalleththe only way i could get ubuntu to install was to use the alternate installer dvd and manually instal the graphics drivers before starting  x02:39
kallethjust sayin'02:39
Izinucsmelfy: sounds like your experience is already beyond mine :).. the vbox channel is typically busier in later hours or earlier hours..02:39
melfyah :(02:40
tcm5025how did you manually install the graphics drivers?02:40
guysguytoo much booze I am checking out , nnight all02:40
soreaukalleth: I do not think any linux ati driver supports crossfire, unless fglrx does02:40
* Izinucs waves.. sort of02:40
Jordan_Utcm5025: Hold shift during boot to get to the grub menu, then press 'e' to edit the first entry. Add "modeset=1" to the list of kernel parameters (after "quiet splash" and on that same line), then press ctrl+X to boot the modified entry.02:41
puffSomewhere in the last few releases, ubuntu started hiding startup/shutdown messages.  How can I change it back so I can see what's going on?02:41
kallethsoreau: i'm not looking for crossfire02:41
kallethi'm looking for multiple adapters driving 4 monitors seperately02:41
kallethwhich is what i've always had problems doing in any ditro02:41
soreaukalleth: Well I don't think you can do dual cards and make it work right02:41
kallethworks in windoze ;p02:41
elijahpuff: Really? Kubuntu 10.10 beta shows them for me02:41
Jordan_Upuff: Edit /etc/default/grub and remove "splash" (and depending on how much output you want, also quiet) from GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT02:42
soreaukalleth: Well fglrx has mostly windoze code afaik so maybe it's possible but I will tell you, HD2-4xxx is one class and HD5xxx is a different gpu02:42
kallethtcm5025: it was easy for me having an ATI card, i just needed to download the (closed-source ie bad) graphics drivers... i'd try using the alternate installer to get a working build first, and then you can use logfiles to troubleshoot your issues02:42
=== diego is now known as Guest5170
Jordan_Upuff: Then run "sudo update-grub".02:42
kallethsoreau: unfortunately, ATI site says use the same :*(02:42
Izinucskalleth: that's not a test.. If I remember correctly the latest version of x.org doesn't allow multiple cards but I could be wrong.. one of the tricks is to install one only and get it working with dual.. then add the second and continue.. a custom xorg.conf most probably will have to be created.02:42
kallethtcm5025: might be worth seeing if the motherboard manf has any info on nix drivers, though i doubt it02:43
tcm5025i did what you said jordan, no luck02:43
kallethIzinucs: te first card (5870) works perfectly driving two of the monitor02:43
kallethand aticonfig detects the second gfx card02:43
soreaukalleth: Well until the open radeon driver gets this support, I don't think it will work in linux. You can ask more about what the open drivers plans in #radeon02:43
Jordan_Utcm5025: Did you still see the purple background?02:43
kallethits just getting it enabled and working02:43
tcm5025so you ran a different os to get the drivers installed?02:43
puffJordan_U: Thanks.02:43
tcm5025purple background? um, i dunno it was exactly the same as b402:43
tcm5025i dont think it's really purple02:43
Jordan_Upuff: You're welcome.02:44
Izinucskalleth: got that.. check the model of the second that doesn't work against the ati site's compatiblity with the latest x.org02:44
soreautcm5025: You might try booting with the kernel option 'intel.modeset=0'02:44
kallethtcm5025: no, i downloaded a .run file from ATI, but that's because i have a differet graphics card to you. I was saying that you could get a working (console) distribution by using the alternate installer, then possibly these guys can help you get your intel graphics card working :)02:44
soreautcm5025: Err.. i915.modeset=002:44

Jordan_Utcm5025: Ok, that suggests that VESA should really work, I'm not sure why it isn't (or why VESA isn't being used with the xforcevesa option).02:58
soreautcm5025: So, do 'lspci|grep VGA' to see which gpu it is02:58
tcm5025soreau: so i'm picking root from the recovery menu02:58

Quutarok... no answer in ubuntu+1... so let me asjust my question to be non 10.10 specific02:59
Quutarif i have ubuntu with two monitors, ":0.0" and02:59
soreauDrunken_Irony: ubuntu requires at least a toaster02:59
Drunken_Ironysoreau, thank you. i'll hook one up02:59
drewbert*sigh* switched back to proprietary nvidia drivers... Oh hibernate we hardly knew ye.02:59

Quutarif i have ubuntu with two monitors, ":0.0" and ":0.1", how do i restrict the gui and the user experiance to one monitor (:0.0) while leaving the second one availible for apps such as mplayer to draw to?03:00
tcm5025soreau: result is 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82852/855GM Integerated Graphics Device (rev 02)03:00
dvd_problemsubottu ok03:00
ubottuYou're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)03:00
soreauQuutar: That is a somewhat subjective question. If you want mplayer to be on one output or the other, I know how to do it with sdl output at least03:00
Quutari basically want all gui elements, the mouse, and keyboard to be only on a single monitor... but i don't want the second monitor disabled, beccause i want mplayer to be abel to draw to that second monitor03:01
soreautcm5025: Ok so it's probably using the i810 module03:01
soreautcm5025: blacklist it03:01
Quutarsadly, i need to use vdpau output... becasue this is a slow computer with an ion chip03:01
tcm5025soreau: command to do that?03:01
Quutarand... i can get mplayer to display on the monitor i want... the hard part is restricting the UI03:01
soreau! blacklist | tcm502503:02
ubottutcm5025: To blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »03:02
soreauQuutar: What do you mean by restricting UI?03:02
Quutarso... how do I restrict the UI of ubuntu desktop to a single monitor, with out disabling the second minitor... or at least with out making it unusable via vdpau to mplayer?03:02

dvd_problemssoreau: last night installed a bunch of new software... geneology, recipe db, an ndiswrapper to drive my wireless card... nothing specifically related to DVD... after reboot, lost the DVD drive completely. Doesn't recognize a disc inserted at all... really don't know where to start for this. Anyone have pointers?03:03
soreautcm5025: It's very simple, just read what ubottu is telling you and tell us on any part you get stuck at03:03
tuxifierterminalvelocity, most of the time unnstall/reinstall works03:04
dvd_problems < still ubuntu / linux newbie :/03:04
soreaudvd_problems: Can you boot a live cd from it?03:04
tcm5025soreau: i typed in ! blacklist | and it changed my command prompt to a >03:04
soreaudvd_problems: And eject it when you boot?03:04
terminalvelocityany way to do it without losing all my system?03:04
soreautcm5025: That is a command to invoke ubottu to talk to you03:04
tcm5025soreau: so how do i edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist?03:04
tuxifiertry uninstalling/rein stalling pulseaudio03:04
soreautcm5025: You are supposed to read what ubottu tells you03:05
tcm5025soreau: oh haha03:05
terminalvelocitytuxifier...any way to do it without losing all my system and starting from scratc?03:05
edbiantcm5025, It's a file.  use a text editor :)03:05
dvd_problemssoreau: haven't tried that yet. but it did work right up till last night when I rebooted.03:05
soreautcm5025: So to edit a file from a prompt, I use 'nano' because it's easiest03:05
Jordan_Utcm5025: Press ctrl+C to return to a normal prompt, then "nano /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist"03:05
Quutarso, I am guessing that my question is a bit wierd for irc... is there a forum i should be asking it on instead?03:05
soreautcm5025: So just do nano /etc/blacklist or whatever then edit the file and to save it, do Ctrl+X, then hit 'y' and press enter03:06
soreautcm5025: Oh yes, Ctrl+C to get out from >03:06
tuxifierterminalvelocity, when you click the speaker panel icon what do you get?03:06
tcm5025soreau: i did what jordan_u said and have the new screen up, i just type in blacklist <modulename>?03:07
soreautcm5025: What did ubottu tell you?03:07
tcm5025or blacklist <i810>03:07
terminalvelocitytuxifier...I get "waiting for sound system to respond"03:08
dvd_problemssoreau: the DVD drive DOES function though, opens takes disc, closes... doesn't appear to even try to read it though... I suspect a driver issue. how do you troubleshoot drivers?03:08
soreautcm5025: without the <>03:08
tcm5025soreau: To blacklist a module, edit /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist and add « blacklist <modulename> » to the end of that list - To explicitly load modules in a specific order, list them in /etc/initramfs-tools/modules and type « sudo update-initramfs -u »03:08
xuekancould anyone help me to answer this question: if i copy all the .dll file from the windows xp OS to the wine related folder,will there be any problems?03:08
tcm5025soreau: so i typed in blacklist i810. there's no list here though. this is the only thing on this screen03:08
soreautcm5025: If it had said « blacklist modulename », users might get confused and type blacklist modulename03:09
tuxifiertry uninstalling pulseaudio from Applications --> Ubuntu Software Center then reinstall it03:09
tcm5025soreau: nothing happened when i hit enter. do i need to save it or something?03:09
Flannelxuekan: #winehq might be able to help you better03:09
soreautcm5025: Since your module is i810, that's the <modulename> you want to blacklist :)03:09
tcm5025soreau: yea ok that makes sense03:09
terminalvelocitytuxifier...I installed esound because I use skype and my mic was not working03:09
tcm5025soreau: so ctrl+x to get out of there now?03:10
soreautcm5025: Let me see hang on03:10
soreautcm5025: yes exactly as I told you03:10
NateWinvalid flag 0x0820 of partition table 5 will be corrected by w(rite) <---- what should i do?03:10

Coded1I have a radeon 3200HD (R780) card and I'm trying to enable video acceleration on 10.04.  My test video is 1080p bluray rip h264 encoded which works @ ~30%CPU under win7, on ubuntu it is not playable, CPU=Athlon x2 5900+, 2GBRAM, running AMD binary video drivers.  Any one have a hint how to get his bad boy going?03:11
soreautcm5025: Now double chack by re-running the nano command (press the up arrow key)03:11
tuxifierso when you go to System -> Preferences -> Sound you get waiting for something something huh03:11
tcm5025soreau: ok it brought the text editor up again and the only thing in there is what i typed03:12
soreautcm5025: Good now just press Ctrl+X to exit03:12
elijahIs it advisable to set grub timeout to "0"?03:12
tcm5025soreau: back to the root prompt03:12
soreautcm5025: Now one more thing, do 'lsmod|grep i810' and tell me the output03:12

tcm5025soreau: there was some color flash that came up during the blinking cursor that might've been a little different than before...03:15
soreautcm5025: assuming it successfully blacklisted i810, apparently it's not a graphics issue then03:15
soreautcm5025: Next thing is to assume a completely b0rken install and see if a live cd works03:16
terminalvelocitytuxifier..indicator? easy fix I hope ...little help?03:16
tcm5025it didn't before, i can try again03:16

tcm5025soreau: ok i did have the regular installer on my usb stick before and i got stuck at the same screen whether i tried to load it straight off the stick or if i tried to install it03:18
tcm5025soreau: i know the stick worked to because I loaded the os fine on my desktop from it03:18
tcm5025soreau: results were slightly different from the live cd, just more text came up prior to the logo screen03:19
soreautcm5025: Alright, let's backtrack then. How did you originally install the ubuntu on your hard drive? With alternate?03:19
michael_alright i entered the commands in the launcher and i am greeted by a blank terminal window03:19
tcm5025soreau: yea i got the alternate installer after i couldn't get the regular one to work03:19
soreautcm5025: So it's never worked in the first place03:19
tcm5025soreau: yea03:19
tuxifiersudo apt-get install --reinstall pulseaudio03:20

johnathon_ i just got a new laptop and installed ubuntu but when i did the audio is not working it is a Compaq Presario CQ62 can anyone help me03:22
tcm5025jordan_u: yea i saved, and i checked it again by bringing it back up after closing it and it was still there then03:22
Viking667!ops swearing is objectionable03:22
soreautcm5025: Are you sure you typed in the file path correctly?03:22
tcm5025jordan_u: it didn't ask me if i wanted to save after closing it the second time03:22
soreautcm5025: Does 'grep -Rn i810 /etc' show any output?03:22
soreauJordan_U: He saved it then I had him check again03:23
tcm5025soreau: etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist is what i typed in for the file03:23
dshbusinessHello all! Could anybody tell me how to make my laptop bootup without the initrd.img file?? thanks!03:23
Jordan_Udshbusiness: Why?03:23
soreautcm5025: grep -Rn i810 /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist03:23
terminalvelocitytuxifier thanks....works great....i hope that skype still works though03:23
soreautcm5025: does that command show any output?03:24
tcm5025soreau: grep -Rn i810 /etc showed some output03:24
tuxifierlet me know03:24
dshbusinessJordan_U: I just want to look how it was when bootup without initrd.img03:24
Viking667dshbusiness: you may have to compile a kernel with support built in for your IDE chipset, and a few other things that normally come as modules03:24
tcm5025soreau: i didnt' type in the 2nd one yet03:24
Jordan_Utcm5025: There should have been a '/' at the beginning of that path, "nano /etc/modprobe.d/my_blacklist"03:25
tcm5025jordan_u: i think there was i can try it again03:25
dshbusinessViking667: Thanks, but it seems that my computer uses scsi chipset, no IDE03:25
Jordan_Udshbusiness: Ubuntu doesn't support not having an initrd.03:25
tcm5025soreau: there's all this colored text on the screen now from that first command, i'll try the 2nd on you put in now with the exteneded file name03:25
soreautcm5025: Just Ctrl+C to get back to a prompt03:26
o-brownHi, I'm trying to uninstall a package and I get an error message everytime, could someone help me with this ?03:26
soreautcm5025: but Jordan_U is right, it's supposed to have a /, which means your root filesystem03:26
soreautcm5025: begin with a /03:26
Jordan_Uo-brown: Could you pastebin the error?03:26
Jordan_U!pastebin | o-brown03:26
ubottuo-brown: For posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://tinyurl.com/imagebin | !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.03:26
dshbusinessJordan_U: OH! Well, it seems I should give up this crazy idea.03:27
tcm5025soreau: 'grep -Rn i810 /etc/modprobe/d/my_blacklist' outputs 1:blacklist i81003:27
Viking667dshbusiness: same thing probaby applies for your SCSI chipset then, so it can read further information from the root filesystem03:27
soreautcm5025: Ok so the file isn't blank, you just typoed the path03:27
tcm5025soreau: ok my bad03:27
Viking667in effect, you need the kernel to be able to recognise the device your root filesystem's on, recognise the filesystem, and be able to mount the filesystem. Those three are mandatory03:28
tcm5025soreau: what was that text editor called again so i can check it properly? noda?03:28
Viking667you know? nano nano?03:28
michael_ok i have almost no idea how to work linux launchers i installed the os less than two hours ago and i wanna know how to make this launcher03:28
dshbusinessViking667: Do you mean just complie my kernel with built-in scsi?03:28
Viking667(Anyone who knows where THAT comes from is older than I thought)03:28
soreautcm5025: nano03:28
Viking667dshbusiness: pretty much.03:29
michael_does anyone know how to make a launcher for clamav03:29
soreautcm5025: So my synopsis of your problem is, that there is some kind of hardware in this machine that when it goes to load the driver for, it probably locks up the machine03:29
tcm5025soreau: lol alright03:29
Viking667but not "just"03:29
dshbusinessViking667: Thanks!03:29
Viking667dshbusiness: you probably want support for video device too (vesafb may do)03:29
xanguamichael_: just drag it from the menu03:29
tcm5025soreau: that sounds like a problem... it loads windows xp fine...03:29
Viking667and anything else you want support for from the get go03:29
Guest71648how come I'm Guest & no name come up like every one else?Name in Prefs OK. Using xchat cos empathy no go.03:29
michael_xangua: i use the terminal one03:29
Viking667Guest71648: is your normal nick registered? If so, do you have the password?03:30
o-brownJordan_U: first, when I start synaptic, I always get this error message: http://paste.ubuntu.com/492453/03:30
tcm5025soreau: i typed that file properly now and that blacklist command is still in there of course...03:30
soreautcm5025: The most commonly problematic hardware is the gpu, but it may be something else. Do you have any PCI cards or other peripheral devices plugged in? Also what all is plugged into your graphics card?03:30
Viking667If not, then your IRC server will have dumped you back to Guest....03:30
Guest71648suppose registered. Just did it03:30
tcm5025soreau: oh man, i don't know about all that. this is a stock laptop, i never got into it's hardware03:30
Viking667Guest71648: define "just did it"03:30
Viking667as in, what steps did you take?03:30
tcm5025soreau: there's no external hardware plugged in03:31
tcm5025soreau: it's the same as when i bought it03:31
Jordan_Uo-brown: That can safely be ignored.03:31
tuxifieryo terminalvelocity how's your skype?03:31
soreautcm5025: I assume you're trying 10.04 on it, right?03:31
tcm5025soreau: yea03:31
o-brownJordan_U: is there a way I can fix this ?03:31
Guest71648just did it = set up Idiot Robot Chat thing here!!!(irc)03:32
soreautcm5025: I would try a different version of ubuntu and if the problem persists, file a bug with all of your system specifications included03:32
dshbusinessViking667: video device? What do you mean? Does the video system will not work if I boot without initrd?03:32
Viking667dshbusiness: unlikely, but possible.03:32
tcm5025soreau: like an older version?03:32
Guest71648ok . was d/loaded off live cd anyway. tnx fer help03:32
soreautcm5025: A different version ;)03:32
dshbusinessViking667: OK, let me try it.03:32
dshbusinessViking667: Thanks :)03:33
Viking667dshbusiness: if you want framebugger support, then you'll need a module or compile it into the kernel03:33
soreautcm5025: I don't know what's wrong so I can't really say03:33
Viking667most other stuff can be accessed once you get to the root filesystem03:33
tcm5025soreau: tears, i guess i'll just go back to xp for now... : /03:33
dshbusinessJordan_U: Thanks, :)03:33
Jordan_Udshbusiness: You're welcome.03:34
tuxifierhow do you get rid of the empathy icon on the top panel?03:34
tcm5025soreau: maybe i'll try the netbook version for now03:34
soreautcm5025: File a bug. I bet it will be taken seriously.03:34
tcm5025soreau: what specs would i include? just the processor, ram, video card, model number?03:35
Viking667tcm5025: hardware would also be a good idea03:35
Viking667(i.e. pci cards, mouse, keyboard)03:35
soreautcm5025: Any and all information you can provide. Also, the output of 'lspci' might help03:36
tcm5025viking667: well it's a laptop... i don't know i'll just look up what i can, i guess they can prob figure most of it out from the model number right? all the laptops with the same model number are made the same aren't they>?03:36
soreautcm5025: Actually, s/might help/will be useful03:36
Viking667very usually, but not always03:36
Viking667i.e. memory may differ, ditto hard drive03:37
tcm5025soreau: s/might?03:37
Viking667and small changes may not be reflected in the model number03:37
tcm5025viking667: oh ok03:37
Viking667i.e. BIOS revisions03:37
hvhey! as i login to xChat, I logged to this list..... Can someone point how to use it, gracefully. I mean I can see folks messaging and etc, but can it be like topic wise or sth?03:37
Viking667That'd aso be a good idea if you can get to it03:37
Viking667hv: could you explain what you mean?03:38
soreautcm5025: It's a common irc slang for replacing a word or group of words from your previous statement03:38
brummbaerhv, this channel is generally for support. if you want to chat, try typing: /join #ubuntu-offtopic03:38
soreautcm5025: kinda like using the sed program for text replacement03:38
Viking667s/first/second/  substitute second in first's place03:38
tcm5025soreau: haha ok03:38
Viking667hv: or /j #hottub  or /j #whatever-topic-you-want03:38
Viking667sed/awk/ed/ whatever else uses regex03:39
hvbrunbaer: so it is like any one can join and scatter his question/etc to the list.... and guys are there to sort that out03:39
Viking667err, not regex, sorry.03:39
tcm5025soreau: what was the lspci command?03:40
brummbaerhv, yeah, that's the general idea. many heads smarter than one and whatnot03:40
soreautcm5025: yep ;)03:40
tcm5025soreau: i can't find it scrolling up, it was a while ago i think03:40
Viking667tcm5025: try this:   /last your-search-term03:40
soreautcm5025: When you run 'lspci', it shows a list of hardware devices detected on the PCI bus03:40
tcm5025viking667: thanks03:40
soreautcm5025: Earlier I said 'lspci|grep VGA' to show only your detected graphics hardware03:41
Viking667may turn up what you were talking about previously03:41
tcm5025soreau: yea that's a really long list, it fills up more than a page03:41
tcm5025soreau: how can i scroll up?03:41
soreautcm5025: so obviously, you just want 'lspci' or 'lspci -v' fpr verbosity IIRC03:41
soreautcm5025: Shift+Up arrow03:41
hvthanks Vikings & brummbaer :)03:41
soreautcm5025: Shift+Pg Up03:41

soreautcm5025: oh /:03:42
soreautcm5025: well use a usb stick then :p03:42
tuxifiertcm5025 if i may suggest using your Log File Viewer03:42
Viking667diftow: chmod +x your-file; ./your-file03:43
soreautcm5025: but yes, likely with older hardware, an older version of ubuntu might work03:43
Viking667but make damn sure it's not virus03:43
tcm5025tuxifier: i don't know what that is :(03:43
tcm5025soreau: might not* work?03:43
soreaudiftow: You're playing with fire and you will break your system. It's recommended you use official ubuntu packages03:44
CondouloHey, I have a question? In Ubuntu 10.04, when I install the proprietary Java client, where would that be stored?03:44
tcm5025soreau: so if i type lscpi -v &> f:/ will that put it in my flash drive?03:44
diftowMy Nvidia GPU drivers are in the .run file.03:44
soreaudiftow: Also if you have to ask how to run a .run file, you probably shouldn't be manually installing graphics driver anyway03:44
diftowMy computer has no onboard graphics, so i have to install it03:44
Random832tcm5025: uh, no... linux doesn't have x:03:44
Random832tcm5025: figure out where your flash drive is mounted - probably in /media/something03:44
soreaudiftow: However if you must, just chmod +x it to make it executable then run it with ./blah-blah-blob.run03:45
tcm5025random832: um, is there a method to figure that out?03:45
Random832tcm5025: ls /media03:45
Random832or 'mount' i guess03:45
Random832to get a list of everything and you have to just figure out which one it is [usu pretty obvious]03:45
soreaudiftow: You don't have to install it. You can use sys>admin>hardware drivers to install supported drivers03:45
brummbaeror fdisk -l or df -H03:46
Random832it'll either be /media/[volume label of drive] or /media/1234-5678 (8 hex digits)03:46
brummbaerdf -H is probably easiest to interpret if you know the drive size03:46
soreautcm5025: You have to mount the flash drive filesystem before you can write to it03:46

hv_monkSo, this is a channel #ubuntu.... I am wondering about other lists... how does this irc work. There can't be only one server to which you can connections for ALL such channels.03:47
diftowand i created a root account before, and it told me to run as "something level 3"03:47
soreautcm5025: So plug it in, look at the output of 'dmesg|tail' then it will show you where it is in /dev, then do 'sudo mount /dev/sdd1 /mount/point' replacing that info with the real output of dmesg and real mount point directory03:47

brummbaertcm5025, different letters are different drives, and the numbers are the partition numbers on the drive. soreau is probably right that if you only have a internal and the flash connected, flash is probly /dev/sdb103:52

tcm5025soreau: just about, i have to put it on the usb drive now. i hope it doesn't take forever, the program that i put it on with took forever when i put the alternate installer on b4. i think it was because it wasn't a preset version on the list in the program04:32

kronospherebrummbaer: it is not activated04:33

brummbaerkronosphere, edbian has the exact card you do, while mine is a similar though diff version. he's saying you need b43-fwcutter04:41
kronospherei have b43-fwcutter installed04:42
edbiankronosphere, Do you also see b43-fwcutter.  If I'm not mistaken there are 2 drivers.  b43-legacy and b43 (provided by b43-fwcutter) you need the later04:42
tcm5025soreau: 10.10 got stuck before it even got to the boot installer04:42
edbiankronosphere, When you installed b43-fwcutter was the machine connected to the internet?04:42
kronosphereyes, i think so, i think it had to download some files or it wouldn't install04:42

elias_hey all of a sudden my audio stopped working. what should i do?04:46
edbiankronosphere, ok.  That means the wireless card is not working yet.  You can use the lspci command to see what devices are using what drivers.  It lists drivers (software in use) and kernel modules (other options for drivers that might work but are not installed).  sudo lspci -k   Do you see what driver your card is using?  There is a lot of output I know.  Look for BCM4306 or Broadcom04:46

edbiankronosphere, Does your router broadcast it's essid?04:51
kronospheremaybe there is some config that must take place before it shows wireless networks available?04:51
kronosphereedbian: i just did pastebin since i am noobz, wanted to make sure i didn't miss something important04:52
edbiankronosphere, There are none.  If the module is installed you can scan for networks.  I say this because if the module / hardware wasn't working you'd get Interface doesn't support scanning.  But you didn't you got "no scan results" which implies it looked and didn't find any.04:52
edbiankronosphere, Look at the last like 20 lines of the output of dmesg.  Do you see anything about your wireless in their?04:52
edbiankronosphere, You can pastebin that too if you want me to look at it.04:53

nortyI have a problem: my netbook's  SD card renamed itself something like "ody></htm"04:59
edbiankronosphere, The lights are part of the hardware.  You need the driver (kernel module) in place in order to connect to a wireless network or to get the led to light.  If one is working the other is most likely working because you have a driver in place.  That is a good sign.05:00
edbiankronosphere, At the upper right hand corner of the panel there is a little networking thingy.  It lets you join wireless networks.05:00
edbiankronosphere, Is this a laptop?  With a wifi kill switch?05:00

brummbaernight all...05:02
edbiankronosphere, I see.  Those kill switches actually shut off the circuit to the hardware. If it was set to "off" the system wouldn't even see that the card existed.  I can tell it's def on because your card shows up in all these commands.  In fact the fact that the switch does anything at all is even more proof that there is a working driver.05:02

edbiankronosphere, open places.  press the up button until you can't go up any further.  Then go to etc, then network, then you can see the interfaces file.05:19

tripelbierHow to partiion and install ubuntu on a MS drive - question. ---> I have windows on a 1T drive - takes up the entire drive. I want to put linux on the drive. How much space should I allocate to linux, err ubuntu. I want to keep my 'stuff' in an NTFS partition so that everyone can read it, thinking media mostly. I'd like to have Ubuntu keep any saved web pages in a way so that Windows can read05:42
tripelbierit. By Windows I mean XP. The drive is a SATA. From time to time I will be mounting an IDE drive... and transferring its data onto the 1T drive. Should I worry about anything from an old drive affecting the new big drive. (FYI most of the info is on linux drives but some are Windows or are on a DVD with a Windows origin.05:42

Dulaktripelbier: linux can use ntfs partitions, a base 20gig partition for linux is plenty for the OS, the only thing that sucks about ntfs on linux is the file permissions, you have to set it so anyone can access it, or only one user, which screws up say serving webpages from ntfs under linux05:45

kronosphereyou want pastebin?06:14
castDulak: but what do you know....find has a -delete option :) now that is clean06:14
Dulakcast: -exec spawns a shell for every call iirc, I assumed bash since that is the default in ubuntu.  The number of files is a factor though, I gave him a quick and dirty way.06:14
kronosphereJordan_U: thank you06:15
edbiankronosphere, Find then line that says blacklist b43  and delete it06:15
edbianJordan_U, Yes thanks again!  It's getting late06:15
edbiankronosphere, no need to pastebin06:15
edbiankronosphere, Delete the line, save it.  Restart the machine to test that it works how we want.06:15
castDulak: i'm going to have to use find -delete more often..06:15

kronosphereedbian: done06:15
Dulakcast: that's new06:15
edbiankronosphere, good :)06:16
kronosphereedbian: hey, didn't we put that blacklist b43 in there earlier?06:16
Viking667how does consolekit-daemon get started on a normal system startup?06:16
PsWii60anybody know about ufs2/ext4 on ubuntu?06:16

Jordan_U!anyone | PsWii6006:16
ubottuPsWii60: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?06:16
microlithoh what the hell06:16
Viking667PsWii60: hm? ext4 works, ufs2 is certainly supported for read, I don't know for write.06:17
microlithwhy does ubuntu 10.04 make a 6GB swap partition06:17
edbiankronosphere, That prevents the b43 module from being loaded.  When you sudo modprobe b43 (to get the wireless card to work) that loads the b43 driver.  Why would we blacklist it?06:17
microlithbeatings are in order06:17
PsWii60Viking667 interesting.06:17
Viking667microlith: how much memory do you have normally?06:17
kronospherewhoever i worked with earlier blacklisted it06:17
Viking667PsWii60: be aware my information probably isn't up to dat.06:17
kronospheretold me to open that file and enter blacklist b43 anywhere in the file06:18
Viking667microlith: hm. Then I don't know, sorry. On what size hard drive?06:18
microlithViking667: 160GB06:18
Jordan_Ukronosphere: Looking back at the logs xiaclo is the one that told you to add that.06:18
edbiankronosphere, silly them.06:18
microlithI'm just wondering why that's what it does when yo let it automatically partitio06:18
Dulakkronosphere: they messed up then since b43 solved the problem you need to blacklist the other module that was conflicting instead06:18
PsWii60would somebody like to confirm what Viking667 said?06:18
willinjamicrolith, my ubuntu's swap only 2gb this is very wrong rite ?06:18
microlith+missed keys06:18
kronospherelol yes it was xiaclo06:18
edbiankronosphere, Well we don't want it in there.  Remove it and restart the machine to test.06:18
kronospherei did remove it and im rebooting now06:18
edbianxiaclo, Why did you have him do that?06:18
edbiankronosphere, k06:18
microlithwillinja: I'm just confused as to why the default is so exceedingly huge06:18

Jordan_Umicrolith: For completely reliable hybernation you need at least as much swap as you have RAM, and the recommendation used to be 2X as much swap as RAM.06:20
Condoritohi, question. jscalibrator appears to be unavailable. confirm?06:20
willinjamicrolith, im watching the use of the swap and lucid just barely use the swap even if i give them like 4gb (most of the people recommended it this way) most of the time, it only use like 20mb or less06:21

hvonce i suspend my system (ubuntu 9.10), after restoring it, kernal routing tables become clean?06:22
Jordan_Ukronosphere: You're welcome.06:22
blackmatteri though ur darren from openssl devel XD06:22
edbiankronosphere, So I take it things are working correctly now? :)06:22
kronospherei was instantly connected!06:22
hvand can't connect to the internet anymore, without restarting06:22
blackmatteryr most welcome krono06:22
casti think i stopped using swap when i upgraded from 64MB RAM 128MB swap to 512MB RAM :)06:22
CondoritoReading package lists... Done06:23
kronospherethis is amazing, there is no faster system to shut down, restart, and be back connected to the intenet06:23
CondoritoBuilding dependency tree06:23
CondoritoReading state information... Done06:23
CondoritoE: Couldn't find package jscalibrator06:23
edbiankronosphere, Perfect.06:23
DulakYeah I'm not a big fan of programs just randomly killed when my ram is full, I like swap06:23
edbiankronosphere, a ha! Ubuntu developers but a lot of time to get things to boot that fast.06:23
kronosphereyou know, this needs to be written down in the logs somewhere, how to fix this setup06:23
edbiankronosphere, There are faster systems. http://blog.internetnews.com/skerner/2009/07/linux-achieves-1-second-boot.html06:24
edbiankronosphere, Ha ha :)  Ok write it down :)06:24
kronosphereomg 1 sec!06:24
hvwhy kernal routing tables get cleaned up once i restore ubuntu 9.10 after suspending it?06:24
edbiankronosphere, That's linux my friend06:24
blackmatterread http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=130079006:24

blackmatterif u still need the package06:24
blackmatterthats the place : http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/jscalibrator06:25
edbiankronosphere, ha ha ah  Tell that to 95% of the market06:25
blackmatteropensource is the real shet XD06:25
blackmattersrry for swearing06:25
Dulakhv: it's a feature not a bug, your network should reconnect and reset routing when you unsuspend06:25
kronosphereedbian: true, it feels like some kind of risk trying linux and it wasn't easy to get advice on which one to start with, i tried three different kinds before i got to ubuntu06:26
ubuntudid you try suse06:26
edbiankronosphere, Ubuntu is probably the best for new users.06:26
Dulakhv: to not have the network reset would lead to some broken routing, say if you suspend at home but resume at work...06:26
edbiankronosphere, I started on Ubuntu.  Now I use Debian.06:26
kronospherei tried mint KDE - it didnt ever load properly06:26
willinjai got a question how to connect a huawei modem to the ubuntu lucid ?06:26
kronospherei tried Mint Gnome - that also didn't load properly06:27
blackmatterubuntu is the best cloud avaliable today06:27
Dulakhv: standard practice on suspend or hibernate is to disconnect and clear networking06:27
Kane_harthttp://godcraft.com/x/server.png I got htop working great see the green text? is there a way I can show ONLY anything using java or that name? that way I can see all the treads?06:27
blackmatterand the repositories n devs r nice n good06:27
ubuntuI like both SuSe and Ubuntu06:27
willinjait just didnt identify my 3g modem as a 3g just barely a usb06:27
hvDulak: but it doesn't get restored automatically.... even i restart the networking service. and it seems there is no other option other thanrestart.06:27
kronospherethen ubuntu and there was the amazing wubu loader for windows, amazingly easy to install06:27
blackmatteri like mainframes as180x etc XD06:28
ubuntuI think once you get hook on linux it's hard to leave it06:28
Dulakhv: network manager automatically reconnects my network when I resume from suspend or hibenate, what version of ubuntu are you using?06:28
edbiankronosphere, You're on wubi!  I didn't even know.06:28
willinjakronosphere, i agree with your about the wubu loader :D it's very easy to instal06:28
kronospherefirst of all, there is no support community like this for microsoft windows06:29
blackmatterbut i need to say this06:29
hvDulak: it used to do so, but it stopped doing it automatically after i took update.06:29
blackmattermicrosoft = 0x0000008006:29
Dulakhv: mmmm, been a while since I ran that one but I don't remember an issue with resuming, you are using network manager?  If so you might give wicd a try instead06:29
willinjablackmatter, say what ?06:29
hvDulak: it is happeing for the last 4-5 days06:29

cybicgood morning everybod - i have some strange problems with my ubuntu 10.04. it freezes occaionaly. sometimes during watching flash-youtube (i can still push my mouse but the keyboard is locked - no ctrl.alt.f1 etc.) an today i started my computer (waked up from standby) and saw just tty6 login instead of xserver :( and the keyboard was locked! hard reset again... what could it be on a nc6400 with 2 gigs of ram?06:32
kronospherenow that i finally have my internet working and linux is running and all, is there anything i should do now to see what is cool about linux?06:32
Dulakhv: if you install it, network manager will be replaced with wicd, they are similar but wicd will run at boot instead of at login like network manager, that is the main difference between them06:32
edbiankronosphere, compiz06:32
edbiankronosphere, Possibly the coolest thing ever06:33
kronospherewhat is that?06:33
blackmattercybic >> update linux firmwire plz06:33
cybicblackmatter: which kind of firmware?06:33
WXZI need some data recovery software06:34

WXZI accidentally created a partition table06:34
Dulakyou don't know the cube?  The compiz desktop cube is awesome eyecandy that always impresses windows users when I show it to them06:34

kronosphereedbian: i googled it, reading about it now06:34
cybicblackmatter: it's up to date06:34
kronospheredo you have it installed ?06:35
Dulakhv: no the routing table is wiped on suspend or hibernate, but wicd might restart the network correctly for you on resume.  Network manager is supposed to do that but is broken for you.06:35

tripelbierMy question is about how to partiion and install ubuntu on a MS drive -  ---> I have windows on a 1T drive - takes up the entire drive. I want to put linux on the drive. How much space should I allocate to linux, err ubuntu. I want to keep my 'stuff' in an NTFS partition so that everyone can read it, thinking media mostly. I'd like to have Ubuntu keep any saved web pages in a way so that Windows06:58
tripelbiercan read it. By Windows I mean XP. The drive is a SATA. From time to time I will be mounting an IDE drive... and transferring its data onto the 1T drive. Should I worry about anything from an old drive affecting the new big drive. (FYI most of the info is on linux drives but some are Windows or are on a DVD with a Windows origin.06:58

dr0idDulak: wat does sudo -i does ?07:05
Dulakdr0id: then you can do whatever you need in the root shell.  Do what you have to do and exit the root shell, don't leave a root shell sitting around07:05
dr0idhow to exit root shell ?07:05

Dulakdr0id: you can make a root nautilus, but say you open the folder and then you want to open the file, you'd have to tell the editor to open as root.  It's gross and a pain in the butt07:08
Izinucsdr0id: you want to read the log file called apache2?  sudo cat /var/log/apache2 or gksudo gedit /var/log/apache207:08

Dulakdr0id: one is for the terminal, one is for the gui07:13
ubottuIf you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)07:13

Four2zeroDo i insert the module into directory mods-available or mods-enabled ?07:20
Izinucsterminalvelocity: interesting07:20
ilovefairuzpreetam: in a terminal: sudo ifconfig wlan0 up && iwlist scan  ..  do you see any networks?07:20
DulakFour2zero: mods-available, then you use a2enmod to enable it07:20
blackmatteror just copy paste the mods u need to mods enabled folder...07:21
blackmatterthen sudo apache2ctl restart07:21
Four2zeroCompile and install your module with the following command:07:21
Four2zeroapxs -c -i ./mod_flvx.c07:21
Four2zeroDulak why you tell me different compared to what this tutorial is showing me: Compile and install your module with the following command:07:21
preetamsudo ifconfig wlan0 shows some entry. actually my Wifi light is  not blinking..07:22
Dulakno that's bad practice, mods-available is the correct place, and a2enmod will create the symlinks in mods-enabled, per the SOP for debian based apache config07:22
ilovefairuzDulak: blackmatter: Four2zero: the mods-available and -enabled directories are just for configuration files, actual module binaries should be in /usr/lib/apache2/modules/07:23

WXZI have 4 gigs of ram07:24
Four2zeroilovefairuz so i upload the module to that directory you specified, then use a2enmod07:24
DulakFour2zero: apxs will put the binary in the right place, I thought we were talking about the config for the module, not the module itself, my mistake07:24
willinjaabhijit, do u ever use ubuntu for movie editing ?07:26
ilovefairuzFour2zero: there has to be a .load (and optionally .conf) file for the module in /etc/apache2/mods-available/ for a2enmod to work07:26
WXZso no help?07:26
Four2zerookay, so let me get this clear....I upload the mod_flvx.c to /usr/lib/apache2/modules/ then i do this command apxs -c -i ./mod_flvx.c07:26
ilovefairuzpreetam: rfkill list... anything blocked?07:26
terminalvelocityilovefairuz...is there a newer plugin or an older one or some alternative?07:26

WXZI'm also getting "some of these packages could not be retrieved from the server" errors in the package manager07:27
terminalvelocityiluvfairuz...do i just wait for updates or do i download a newer version than that available from the repositories?07:28
ilovefairuzFour2zero: Four2zerowhat Dulak means is that when you compile the .c module using apxs it will automatically put the binary .so in the right directory07:28

Katsumi32its about animals from discovery channnel09:35
diftow21993 Film by Steven Spielberg based on the novel by Michael Crichton, about dinosaurs being brought back to life via cloning and used in a theme park.09:35
Katsumi32diftow2, ??????09:35
Viking667hm. Right. So, how does it relate to a IRIX program?09:35
diftow2Anyway, in the film it features SGI workstations, which run the operating system IRIX 4.1.. And when one of the characters is browsing files in IRIX, its a 3D visualization of the HDD.. files etc.. via a program called FSN.09:36
Andy_S_sweetpi: well, i've screwed something, but that was not the case... still no luck09:36
Katsumi32diftow2, are you planning usung ubuntu bring dead animals back to life ?09:36
[styx]join #ubuntu-beginners09:36
diftow2FSV is a clone of FSN, that runs on Linux/Unix systems in whole, unlike FSN who is only for IRIX, and IRIX only runs on MIPS cpus09:36
diftow2No, I just want to run FSV since its designed for Linux. But its in Source code and I don't know how to compile.09:37
[styx]sorry my page accidently scrolled up and saw a old post lol09:37
Viking667diftow2: so. In short, you need a compiler - probably gcc, and g++, probably need X development as well.09:37
diftow2okay, and also.. does ubuntu use the x window system?09:38
Viking667probably need imake, couple of other ancillary programs09:38
xiaclopiyushmishra have you specified the code type? from the dropdown it should do syntax highlighting for just about anything including html ... if that isn't sufficient, you can look into modifying the gedit syntax files to suit what you need09:38
diftow2I just need to make sure I understand what X window means.09:38
Viking667diftow2: yup.09:38
sweetpiAndy_S_: make sure you can mount the export on the same box09:38
diftow2okay, then its compatible09:38
diftow2fuckin awesome, pardon my french09:38
Viking667Xorg is a X Window System09:38

diftow2Can linux code be converted to run on Windows?09:39
Viking667don't get me started on food...09:39
sweetpiAndy_S_: i mean on the nfs server09:39
Viking667diftow2: depends on how POSIX-compliant it is.09:39
diftow2Ah, alright :)09:39
Richie086depends diftow209:39
Andy_S_sweetpi: yep, i am09:39
alainganycan someone help me with samba?09:39

Viking667it's a b(((ger of a job.09:39
nogoi just removed my samba09:39
piyushmishraxiaclo: I selected the highlighting part. am looking for plugins to clean my code. something that automatically indents on each new line when I have hit tab once till I stop it and something that can balance out braces for me so that I can find where I missed out one09:39
xiaclodiftow2 all code can be ported ... how much work depends on POSIX and what libraries it uses and if those are available for windows09:39
Richie086alaing: dont ask if u can ask, just ask09:39
diftow2Alright, ill brb and if im successful, ill upload some screencaps heh09:40
Viking667diftow2: point me to the tarball, I'll take a look09:40
alainghow do i check to see that vnc-server is allowed on the firewall09:40
Viking667I've probably seen something like it, come to think of it.09:40
xiaclopiyushmishra i could swear gedit could do that ... give me a second, let me play with it09:40
piyushmishraxiaclo: tell me how :)09:40
Viking667If you can stand the headspace thing, try vim or emacs09:41
sweetpiAndy_S_: ok, just making sure nfs is actually working right. do you get any other errors on boot, or did you change anything else?09:41
Richie086alaing: do a sudo iptables -L and post the output to pastebin09:41
Richie086then post the url in chat09:42
Andy_S_sweetpi: nope... just "nfs over tcp not available from" and "connect: Network is unreachable"09:42

alaingI highlight it and do ctrl+c and then try paste it in pastebin and theres no paste option09:45
Richie086arnab: yeah not a prob09:45
Viking667By the way, a shortcut for you, diftow2 - sudo apt-get install fsviewer09:45
xiaclopiyushmishra edit > preferences > View > highlight matching bracket (at the bottom) .... Editor > enable automatic indentation (middle)09:45
Viking667diftow2: means you won't need to compile it09:46
Richie086alaing: try the middle mouse button to copy the text09:46
alaing[thor]: from the terminal?09:46
[thor]alaing: also you can middle-click to paste the last copied item09:46
Richie086if u have a middle mouse button that is09:46
[thor]alaing: both ways, actually.. you can use middle-click to paste back into terminal09:46

piyushmishraxiaclo: vim works on terminal na?09:59
Richie086alaing_: oh09:59
xiaclopiyushmishra vim does yes, but there is also gvim, which is a gtk version09:59
sweetpiAndy_S_: from initramfs, see what ifconfig says09:59
airtonixpiyushmishra, if dreamweaver was your previous editor then vim won't be something you'll like10:00
selofithe spanish channel please?10:00
zetherooI am trying to install recorditnow in Ubuntu Lucid and am getting a message in SPM regarding 3 packages that need to be installed but won't be due to unresolved dependencies ... how to fix?10:00
piyushmishraairtonix: will it learn and remember the functions from old sessions?10:00
xiaclopiyushmishra yeah, vim is very powerful, but like i said, quite a bit of a learning curve to it ... once you get used to it, everything else seems second-rate ... but it takes a while10:00
BenomsHi, wondering if i can get a quick hand with something. I have 2 ubuntu machines. I made a folder on one and enabled sharing and write access to it (installed samba in the process and restarted session). I can't seem to connect to it from my other PC. It finds it and asks for login, domain and password. I put the user's login name and password and machine name as domain, but it doesn't accept my password :( any ideas?10:00
sweetpiAndy_S_: do you have another computer you can try to netboot, just to verify its not the server setup?10:00
zetheroothe three packages are: kdebase-runtime, kdelibs5, libqt4-svg10:00
piyushmishraxiaclo: lol I am learning a lot since I am on ubuntu10:01
Andy_S_sweetpi: yes10:01

Andy_S_sweetpi: just a sec10:01
Benomsi don't have samba installing on the other PC come to think of it.. maybe thats what i need?10:01
selofikatsumi32: como es la ruta completa? join...,que?10:01
piyushmishraxiaclo: does the gtk verion match the original vim ?10:01
NoReGreTi'm running lucid x86 and no flashplayer plugin is installed on chromium where the adobe website that it is, what can i do there ?10:02
Katsumi32selofi, yo no speak mexican10:02
piyushmishraxiacloI mean carries all features and works with them properly?10:02
xiaclopiyushmishra yes, the only difference is it has dropdown menus, so you don't have to remember a million arcane keybinds10:02

xiaclopiyushmishra some you will use often enough to get used to, the rest you can find in dropdown menus, that's the nice part about gvim10:03
piyushmishraxiaclo: so sudo apt-get install gvim ?10:04
Jared555if grub is set up to make windows the default OS, are kernel updates going to make ubuntu the default again?10:04
denysonique_lubuI am not a gui fan. but is it possible to control everything using a gui?10:04
xiaclopiyushmishra yep, should get you started ... look through the menus, there is a LOT of options10:04
piyushmishraxiaclo: Package gvim is a virtual package provided by:10:05
piyushmishra  vim-gtk 2:7.2.330-1ubuntu310:05
piyushmishra  vim-gnome 2:7.2.330-1ubuntu310:05

sweetpiAndy_S_: sounds like it, check supported hardware10:06
phanindracan i use nokia 3110c for ganyremote?10:06
xiacloJared555 kernel updates will ask before replacing any user-modified files ... so if you changed your grub files to make windows boot first, nothing will replace that without asking10:06
zetherooI am trying to install recorditnow in Ubuntu Lucid and am getting a message in SPM regarding 3 packages that need to be installed but won't be due to unresolved dependencies ... how to fix?10:06
piyushmishraxiaclo: do you have a gtalk/yahoo? I think I will eat up ur head when I dont find something on vim :P10:06
zetheroothe three packages are: kdebase-runtime, kdelibs5, libqt4-svg10:06
xiaclopiyushmishra no, but i leave my computer idle on irc, so just msg me here, i'll get back to you when i can10:07

piyushmishraxiaclo: I need to be able to do all the basic things that I can do with gedit now first with vim. does it have highlighting abilities? coloring parts of code for ease in reading10:09

KiNkOPen your terminal and type vimtutor and it will tell you everything you need to know10:10
xiaclopiyushmishra from gvim, just syntax> automatic should work, it's pretty good about detecting what language it is10:10
phanindracan i use nokia 3110c for ganyremote?10:11
phanindrawhile i am using ganyremote, i have tried to connect it to my nokia 3110c mobile.But when i clicked at testAT, its showing AT mode not supported. Is there any solution??10:11
Guest27456Hi guys10:11
piyushmishraxiaclo: omg its huge :P10:11
sweetpiAndy_S_: well unless there is a linux driver for your network card, your out of luck trying to netboot it. except for maybe a fat initrd. i would check some more from the initramfs to make sure its not some other problem10:12
Guest27456just a question10:12
Andy_S_sweetpi: well, i am not that good :(10:12
xiacloJared555 depends what file you edited ... the correct way to update that file in grub2 is to modify the files /etc/default/grub and then run grub-mkconfig10:12
Guest27456does anyone of you have problems with his/her printer when displaying ink levels on gnome print?10:12
piyushmishraxiaclo: I have used this before. we used to code c and c++ in vim in our first and second yr at college on red hat :)10:13
sweetpiAndy_S_: add break=premount to kernel options, then type ifconfig10:13
piyushmishraxiaclo: we used very little keybinds but yes I remember it now10:13
xiaclopiyushmishra yeah, vim is a beast ... but it's one of the most powerful text editors that exists ... although i'm sure people would argue with me for emacs =)10:13
KiNkNot me I like vim10:14
piyushmishraxiaclo: auto indent and balance braces?10:14
Guest27456because it shows me that there's no ink10:15
Guest27456i have a brother printer10:15
Andy_S_sweetpi: ok, sec10:15
piyushmishraxiaclo: how do I save settings?10:16
xiaclopiyushmishra balance braces is on by default as long as it recognizes what language you are in, its part of syntax highlighting ... auto indent is edit > file settings > toggle autoindent10:16
Andy_S_sweetpi: without any reply...10:17
piyushmishraxiaclo: I was trying to set the number of spaces in tab10:17
xiaclopiyushmishra for everything command, there is a vim shortcut ... you can add that to your ~/.vimrc file .... for example, autoindent is ':set ai!'10:18
piyushmishraxiaclo: I have edited that config file. what is the key to sabe it10:18
obarbhey guys, can someone please tell me w<hich ubuntu version fluxbuntu 7.10 is?10:18
xiaclopiyushmishra any file is esc > :w or :wq if you want to exit too10:18

Andy_S_sweetpi: device not found10:22
piyushmishraxiaclo:  its an option window10:22

piyushmishraxiaclo: no settings window10:23
zetheroodarknemos: programs?10:23
Andy_S_sweetpi: crap10:23
xiaclopiyushmishra oh, just quit then ... :q10:23
zetheroodarknemos: I don't understand what your trying to accomplish10:23
sweetpiAndy_S_: your booting the latest version?10:23
Andy_S_sweetpi: 10.0410:23
darknemoszetheroo, i have software that i have to set a cache directory. But in the dropdown i can only select the / and /home but not mounted partitions10:24
Richie086darknemos: is ur $PATH messed up?10:24
piyushmishraxiaclo: lol nice learning curve we did all these basic ones and now I have forgotten all of this :P10:24
NoReGreTi'm running lucid x86 and no flashplayer plugin is installed on chromium where the adobe website that it is, what can i do there ?10:24
sweetpiAndy_S_: yeah, only thing I can say is search around for "linux your_netbook_model"10:24
xiaclopiyushmishra to set your tab length to 4 for example ... add these two lines to your ~/.vimrc ... ':set tabstop=4' ':set sw=4'10:24
zetheroodarknemos: what software?10:24
darknemoszetheroo, the program is called Mari. A very specilized software10:25
zetheroodarknemos: huh ... specialized for linux?10:25
piyushmishraxiaclo: I did that on the other file :P btw how to select all code? ctrl+a seems to copy the last few lines10:26
darknemoszetheroo: its a 3d texturing app, Never mind its complicated :)10:26
darknemosand yes its linux x64 only10:26
Richie086NoReGreT: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree10:26
pat|nG!seen dustin_10:26
ubottuI have no seen command10:26
FusionXsoreau: the 1028x786 resolution changed back to 800x600 and the "1024x786" wasn't available when i restarted10:26
soreauFusionX:  OUTPUT=VGA1; MODE="1024x768_60.00"; xrandr --newmode $MODE   63.50  1024 1072 1176 1328  768 771 775 798 -hsync +vsync && xrandr --addmode $OUTPUT $MODE && xrandr --output $OUTPUT --mode $MODE10:27
zetheroodarknemos: so it's specialized to only show those two locations ... / and home10:27
Ikari_ShinjiIs there a site I can look up lsusb entries on? Google is returning garbage.10:27
darknemoszetheroo: i cannot select anything other than those two locations10:27
Richie086NoReGreT: let me know if that works for u.. dont forget to close and open ur browser10:28
darknemosso i need a shortcut to the mounted windows partitions in order to use them10:28
Richie086after installing10:28
Ikari_ShinjiIt looks like neither the boradcom wireless OR the WWLAN Gobi cards are supported out of the box in Ubuntu.10:28
xiaclopiyushmishra i use a massive number ... although i'm sure there is a way to copy all ... y is yank (or copy) followed by number of lines before or after and a direction .... so y5<down arrow> will copy your current line, and 5 lines below it ... p will paste ... again, out of insert mode10:28
zetheroodarknemos: and you want to set the cache location to where?10:28
xiaclopiyushmishra so the whole file ... i usually do something like :1 (jump to line 1) y9999999<down>10:28
pat|nGhi there.....i need a help regarding to my grub....everytime i update my kernel i got this new grub....it's not good to see more grub on my start up....10:28
piyushmishraxiaclo: ohk10:29
xiaclopiyushmishra it sounds bad ... but you get really fast at it ... and i'm sure some vi guru could show you an easier way, i just know the basic stuff myself10:29
darknemoszetheroo: i have 2 linux partitions. / and /home but i also have 2 big windows partitions C and D but the software doesnt see those 2 locations. Only / and /home10:29

darknemoszetheroo: what do you mean mounted in the system?10:30
=== RudyValencia- is now known as RudyValencia
zetheroodarknemos: and if so can your see them in the software when they are mounted?10:30
zazz_I have a quick q which might sound kind of silly but is there much difference in the netbook edition and the desktop? In other words, would a little apsire one netbook handle the desktop version of ubuntu? :)10:30
FusionXsoreau, i pm'ed the error10:30
zetheroodarknemos: are they mounted in linux10:31
darknemoszetheroo: i just said they are mounted and i can use them. But the software cannot see them10:31

piyushmishraxiaclo: ty for now I think I will look or some keybind printable page first10:38
zetheroodarknemos: ok ... I cannot figure out making a link to the partition itself ... but you can make a link to a folder within the Windowz partition10:38

ShredMasterDr_Willis: how can I list the torrents in the torrent window itself?10:49
[thor]ShredMaster: i left utorrent behind for deluge once i switched to ubuntu.10:50
piyushmishraxiaclo: u have set space to fold the code?10:50
willinjadeluge rock :D10:50
xiaclopiyushmishra yes, you can change that to something else, or remove it if you want10:50
willinjai love deluge user interface10:50
piyushmishraxiaclo: Its fine I was trying to make sense of the settings10:51
[thor]ShredMaster: it has everything you are used to in utorrent10:51
piyushmishraxiaclo: its cool I think I can learn it in a day or two10:51
ShredMasterthor: ok I will try deluge10:51
piyushmishraxiaclo: any key for toggle full screen?10:51
xiaclopiyushmishra for basic use yeah, it's one of those programs that takes years of experimenting to master10:51
piyushmishraxiaclo: lol its an operating system if u ask me :P10:52
xiaclopiyushmishra yeah, might as well be ... most programming languages aren't as complicated as vim ... and i dont think there is a full screen ... maximizing the window is about the best you can do10:53
glebihanpiyushmishra: Ctrl+F11 should put any window into fullscreen10:53
ShredMasterthor: I want to if deluge lists the donwloadable files in the same window.10:53
[thor]ShredMaster: belay that.. it seems it is lacking in the one function you had mentioned was not working in your utorrent :D10:53
xiaclopiyushmishra remember it's command-line ... so it doesn't know about the window it's running in or have control over it ... would have to handle that through gnome10:53
piyushmishraxiaclo: okie its really fun though everytime i use something on this, I feel like I am pro-er now :P10:54

rblsthi, is there multitouch support for synaptic touchpads in lucid?10:55
xiaclopiymishra yeah ... although once you get used to it, you'll never go back to 'simplier' software for editing ... once i was stuck on a windows system ... and said 'hey, i can open a 10MB SQL dump in notepad, vim can do it no problem' ... turns out it was faster to put it on a flash drive, move it to linux, edit it and move it back ... notepad was still struggling to open it =P10:55
LabanMy laptop is getting hotter and the fan is going all the time when I run Ubuntu, but not Windows. How can I fix this? I guess it's some power thingy...10:56
[thor]ShredMaster: you can set it up to auto-open the torrent files10:56
ownerAnyone here able to help me with sound driver /card issues after installing xubuntu? like i tried everything, xD10:56
ShredMasterthor: ok10:56
[thor]ShredMaster: you can also make it skip the dialog window that asks where to put the new files...10:56
piyushmishraglebihan: I just added the shortcut to my keyboard shortcuts still doesnt work10:57
[thor]ShredMaster: this  isn't really ubuntu stuff.. it might be better to take it to pm or #ubuntu-offtopic10:57
glebihanpiyushmishra: do you use compiz ?10:58
ShredMasterthor: ok10:58
Besogonhello. What do you suggest about Antivirus for Linux Serer which should protects not only the server but windows clients also?10:58
glebihanpiyushmishra: in that case, in ccsm, you can set a shortcut to toggle fullscreen in the "Extra WM Actions"10:58
ownerthor: Would you be able to help me with sound issues?10:59
[thor]owner: probably not.. i'm still mostly a noob.10:59
piyushmishraglebihan: where?10:59

[thor]owner: don't let that stop you from asking in the channel though10:59
kivQuestion, Right now I am doing an ubuntu install, and I was wondering if it was possible to set multiple mount points to the same partition. Basically what I want to do is leave /home/kiv on my ssd, and put /home/kiv/Videos ; Music ; Pictures ; Downloads onto my harddrive disk.11:00

xiacloBesogon there is only a handful of linux viruses, and they have been patched ages ago ... they are VERY rare and short-lived ... so you don't need an antivirus protecting the server ... for the windows boxes on the network though, look into ClamAV, it was designed for e-mail scanning, although you can adapt it to almost anything11:00
glebihanpiyushmishra: run "ccsm", then in the "Window Management" section, you'll find "Extra WM Actions"11:00

xiacloBesogon i'm not sure if corporate antivirus software will work in linux, it's worth some research ... clamav is free, if you are looking for a paid solution, im afraid i'm not much help in that regard11:02
Richie086Besogon: it sounds like your looking for some sort of distributed av solution that can be controlled and managed via linux, is that correct?11:02
toupeiroLinux "viruses" are socially engineered moreso than they are technologically engineered.  They do something, in other words, to get you to do something to elevate to a level that is destructive because they have little to no way to do this on their own.11:03

BesogonRichie086, yes11:04
Richie086Besogon: while i cant personally suggest a paticular peice of software, you will want to do some pretty significant testing in a lab that closely resembles your network before even thinking about deployment11:05

rblsthi, is there multitouch support for synaptic touchpads in lucid?11:07
idletaskI have managed to make virt-manager work with qemu-kvm, but there's something strange11:07
dexsterbuon giorno11:07
[thor]!nl | ubuntukindje11:07
ubottuubuntukindje: Nederlandstalige ondersteuning voor Ubuntu (en vers gezette koffie) is te vinden in #ubuntu-nl11:07
idletaskThe configuration for the VM lies in the user's home directory, but images are created in /var/lib/libvirt/images11:08

ubottudexster: Vai su #ubuntu-it se vuoi parlare in italiano, in questo canale usiamo solo l'inglese. Grazie! (per entrare, scrivi « /join #ubuntu-it » senza virgolette)11:08
idletaskThat's strange11:08
idletaskBut maybe that's on purpose?11:08
somethingintereshow can I safely increase the size of my root partition?11:08
glebihanidletask: the folder's name looks like it's ok11:09
psycho_oreosgparted using livecd11:09
idletasksomethinginteres: you can't, really, unless it is LVM11:09
idletaskglebihan: what? /var/lib/libvirt?11:10
glebihanidletask: yes "libvirt/images" looks like it has been created to put images for libvirt in it...11:10
somethinginteresidletask: hmm, just maverick is reporting I only have 400MB free on it despite it being a pretty new install. I gave it 10GB of space when I installed maverick - was told that'd be enough - clearly not :)11:11
Andy_S_i am back... well, that is weird.11:11
glebihanidletask: but I've never used virt-manager, so I wouldn't be able to tell you more11:11
[thor]idletask: and it puts them i /var/lib/ because that's where lib files go :D11:11
idletaskglebihan: yes, but then here's the thing: configuration for the VM is stored in $HOME/.libvirt, but images are not stored there11:11
Andy_S_i got the ubuntu live working on the netbook... and... the NIC is working too!11:11
WXZif I install windows on 1 partition11:11
WXZI mean hdd11:11
idletaskThis is not coherent11:11
WXZand ubuntu on another11:11
WXZgrub will allow me to switch between both right?11:11
Andy_S_well, why the heck it won't boot via PXE...11:11
[thor]idletask: perhaps to allow for more than one user to access the same image?11:12
glebihanidletask: maybe virt-manager considers images are to be shared between users, whereas configuration is user-dependant11:12
[thor]just guessing..11:12
idletask[thor]: I'm pretty much aware of that but then libvirt is buggy - it creates all directories under /var/lib/libvirt as 755,root,root whereas they should be 775,root,libvirt11:12
usr13WXZ: yes11:12
WXZdoes it matter w11:12
idletask[thor]: the thing is, as the configuration is _not_ stored in /var/lib/libvirt, this is not the case!11:12
WXZdoes it matter the order in which I install11:12
BesogonRichie086, I just ask about decision people use. I think of a scheme: LAN---(Linux+AV)----(Windows clients). (Now we have old version of Kav. antivirus) Actually it is to be suggested to my chief. I don't know will he agree or not.11:13
WXZor windows is going to kill the mbr either way11:13
usr13WXZ: Windows first11:13
quibblerWXZ-> install windows first11:13
Andy_S_well, leaving...11:13
WXZk, thanks11:13
aeon-ltdWXZ: ubuntu kills the mbr with grub, windows first then ubuntu for ease of transition11:13
BesogonRichie086, Its not but also http://solutions.drweb.com/office_shield/11:14
[thor]idletask: i can only guess at the intentions of the coders..11:14
idletask[thor]: this is really a packaging issue, with Gentoo libvirt is packaged differently - and this packaging also has bugs11:14
usr13WXZ: Because windows install will only allow booting itself, and Ubuntu's grub provides for booting multiple OS's11:14
glebihanidletask: found that this is SELinux rule, see http://www.redhat.com/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/5.5/html/Virtualization_Guide/sect-Virtualization-Security_for_virtualization-SELinux_and_virtualization.html11:17
idletaskglebihan: no, this was really a basic permission problem, but reading anyway11:18
idletaskUbuntu doesn't use SELinux, does it?11:18
joschiidletask: no, not by default11:19
Damasceneafter I unlock my screen and press any thing I get the lock again for one more time11:20
glebihanidletask: no but virt-manager is not an ubuntu application, and it follows SELinux rules11:20
idletaskglebihan: only if you tell it to do so11:20
Zolomon What online virus scanner would you recommend?11:20
idletaskglebihan: I use virt-manager/libvirt without SELinux on Gentoo (on two machines)11:20

JunikszHi! I have a problem with the irssi, i dunno how can i join 2 or more servers with this. Beause i start the irssi after i've type the /connect irc.freenode.net and now how can i connect to another server, becase if i type again the /connect with different server it will stay in the [1] "window". And if i make a new window with the /window new hide, and type the /connect irc.different.com it will go back to the first window, and the new is still11:29
