Emanonand btw pfifo dcfldd works better (i think)00:00
pfifoEmanon, guess it depends on the file00:00
=== getafix is now known as getafix1
sebsebsebearthling_: anyway your welcome00:00
earthling_sebsebseb, so I can install other desktops at the same time, and then it keeps track of all the k programs if I want to delete it?00:01
=== getafix1 is now known as StackTrace
sebsebsebearthling_: uh no not exactly, but00:01
earthling_on aptitude00:01
=== StackTrace is now known as Exception
FalsAlarmsudo locate mysqld.sock00:01
sebsebsebearthling_: well maybe on aptitude, but  when I used aptitude I used it instead of typing in apt-get mainly00:01
FalsAlarmunable to find this file on my system, where can I get it from?00:01
=== Exception is now known as UnknownException
sebsebsebearthling_: there are  ways to remove other desktops with commands00:02
andre_plpfifo: yeah. its too slow though :( the file exists on a raid 5 array thats in the process of rebuilding itself for the next 12 hours or so... and writing all that extra data to disk is gonna take forever00:02
earthling_sebsebseb, you have kubuntu and gnome both installed?00:03
cjcopi andre_pl: checkout truncate(1) for a command line tool or truncate(2)/ftruncate(2) for a library routine.  The key will be to make sure you get the size you want to keep correct otherwise you will lose information!00:03
sebsebsebearthling_: not at the moment,  since  another distro, but  in  the past well yes, and Lubuntu and Xubuntu as well00:03
andre_plcjcopi: THANKS!00:04
sebsebsebearthling_: and in the distro I currently am on,  Gnome, KDE, and a preview of the look for the next Gnome00:04
sebsebsebearthling_: that will probably be changed quite a bit before the final version of Gnome 3 comes out, probably in March next year, but this has gone off topic now :D00:05
Emanonalthough dc3dd was updated more recently and is a patch instead of a fork so...00:05

_Neytiri_how do i install a gui onto 10.4.100:17
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: the desktop has a gui by default00:18
aeon-ltd_Neytiri_: well sudo apt-get install X for starters then sudo apt-get install (de or wm of choice)00:18
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: *desktop ISO00:18
FalsAlarmwickedSA, I have mysql-server package installed, should I switch to mysql-server-5.0 ?00:18
aeon-ltd_Neytiri_: are you on server?00:18
wickedSAFalsAlarm: I think mysql-server is a meta package, you can try that comand without the -5.000:19
FalsAlarmactually i only see the mysql-server-5.1 package00:19
FalsAlarmis that stable?00:19
wickedSAFalsAlarm: ok, try it with -5.100:19
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: if you wanted a desktop OS, why did you install server???????/00:20
_Neytiri_i want a server for most of what i run, i need a guy for 1 application on my server00:20
jrib_Neytiri_: what app?00:21
_Neytiri_one i maid00:21
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: you can install server apps on the desktop OS00:21
jrib_Neytiri_: pick your favorite window manager and install it I guess...00:21
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: if you install a desktop on it you wil essentially have the desktop OS but will have double the kernels00:21
_Neytiri_i would rather not have to resintall everything00:22
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop    then00:22
ActionParsnip_Neytiri_: next time, install the desktop system will you, its what you need00:22
_Neytiri_thaknyou and the rest of my rack is running server os so i would hate to have to have 1 desktip out of 48 servers00:23

Sir_Konradhey, am I allowed to use the Ubuntu logo on my site to show that I install it on machines that ship out of my company?00:24
ActionParsnipg0tcha: you'll need the -dev package for it too00:24
psusig0tcha, did you install openssl-dev?00:24
g0tchai dont think so00:24
g0tchalet me check00:24
ActionParsnipSir_Konrad: http://www.ubuntu.com/aboutus/trademarkpolicy00:24
Sir_Konradthanks ActionParsnip00:24
psusiit's looking for the header and .a files, which are not in the normal package... you need -dev00:25
g0tchait says "it couldnt find package penssl-dev00:25
psusihopefully you can look at what you just pasted and spot the error yourself00:25
ActionParsnipg0tcha: try: apt-cache search open | grep ssl | grep dev | less00:25

etrnlo I have a machine with 10.04 on it, it was working fine and then I rebooted it and now its stuck at the ubuntu boot logo, but I can still ssh into it00:30
g0tchamessi, its not installed00:30
Emanonno idea etrnl00:31
etrnlall I did was uninstall/install the evtouch driver00:31
Emanonsame for UnknownException00:31
etrnland all the sudden gdm isn't starting00:31
Emanonyou were both heard but we're all stumped for now00:31
ActionParsnipUnknownException: if you have unpartitioned space, you can mount the CD and maybe run the nistaller but I doubt it. You should boot to USB / CD and install00:31
th0retrnl: if you can ssh into it, check dmesg and /var/log/messages for some indication of what went wrong starting X00:32
etrnllemme see if unininstalling it fixes anything00:32
Emanonactually you can use virt-manager to install to other partitions/drives from a running os try that00:32
UnknownExceptionhaha... thanks for the answer. ok so here is what i have done. im in linux mint right now, and i typed sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop.00:32
jferhi. i would like o know how to package a deb from an archive of binaries00:32
Agent001Hi, I'm having trouble syncing ipod with rhythmbox 0.31.100:32
pfifoUnknownException, you can use the package debootstrap to setup and build a base system but it is not easy, your much better off installing from CD00:32
UnknownExceptionit did a lot of stuff. but i dont know the implication00:32
EmanonAgent001: yea its spotty00:33
UnknownExceptionpfifo: ActionParsnip thanks guys. i guess i will just try with cd. the last time i tried , ran into some issues with the grub loader. i could not boot into windows. but then somehow got it to work. just wanted to avoid that.00:33

Emanonif you have a computer that can handle VM's and a legit install disk you might try virtualbox or virt-manager Agent00100:37

Fredrickha yea, i know00:40
Emanonas soon as i get my wii re jailbroken ill make an image and try00:40
kasansweatI read somewhere that Netflix on Wii doesn't have all the same movies/shows as the computer version.00:40
etrnlok so it was a bag config option00:41
Fredrickwhats the point of a jail broken wii?00:41
Emanonactually there is an *ahem* certain version of windows 7 thats halfway decent kasansweat00:41
kasansweatNot sure if its true though00:41
etrnlback to the drawing board00:41
aeon-ltdFredrick: homebrew channel, and thats it also its not the right place to post here00:41
kasansweatEmanon: haha yeah, but since that's literally all I use that Virtualbox XP installation for, I figure i won't fix it if it ain't broke00:41
kasansweatthat's my media center pc00:41
Fredrickwhy not aeon-ltd?00:42
Fredricki use ubuntu, and its an ubuntu compatibility issue00:42

BitEncryptjrib: i know00:57
ohshaith55turns out the first time it failed to burn the disc...00:57
Emanonnope i was right the first time ntfsprogs00:57
rbasticohshaith55, try another one ! ;-)00:57
ohshaith55then it said the disc was writable so i popped another in and i'm gonna try it now00:57
BitEncryptjrib: if you can assist, i would be grateful00:58
ohshaith55should i check verify?00:58
SubCoolEmanon, i guess i should install via the DVD from now on.00:58
rbasticrandomOfAmber - it's kind of a generic question, do you have a specific package in mind?00:58
ohshaith55ello? should i set it to verify disk after burning?00:58
jribBitEncrypt: not right now, no.  But it seems strange that it wouldn't work.  Anyway if you're sure you need to compile it, read both ubottu's link ndathe documentation for the driver00:59
EmanonProbably not JLaverne was too recent maybe 11.0400:59
BitEncryptjrib: ok00:59
Emanonsure ohshaith5500:59
randomOfAmberrbastic: I want to get linux-headers-2.6.32-21-generic for lucid, but then I might need more to install my driver on a server install00:59
ohshaith55hopefully it works. my computer is a bucket of bolts01:00

Emanonwell the hardware driver finder worked fine for me on my dads laptop but yea its a pain01:04
JLavernethe certain card i had, the hardware finder installs a driver that doesnt work at all01:05
JLaverneand you have to blacklist the driver before you can install the correct one from source code01:05
afeijohey guys !!!01:06
afeijome again01:06
afeijoI am recreating my usb with live ubuntu01:06
Emanon!hi | regeya01:06
ubotturegeya: 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!01:06
rbasticwhat's the nature of the blacklisting process? i'm not familiar with what this is/why it's necessary, i've seen the files in modprobe though01:07
JLavernerbastic, it was something with the way it loads the drivers.01:07
regeyaMy apologies, Eamon.  I had said that in response to afeijo, who for whatever reason didn't receive the same treatment.01:07
ohshaith55this is not working with the dvd...01:07
JLavernei think the two drivers installed for the same card make problems01:08
regeyadoes my nickname annoy people, or something?  It seems often that people can be total weirdos in this channel, and if I have one errant comment, a ton of bricks comes down on my head01:08
afeijobut the app that create the initializable disk, have the extra space disabled!?!? :(01:08
afeijosorry if I translated it wrong, my dist is in my lang01:08
regeyathat's strange afeijo.  iirc there's an option to specify how much free space you can have for read/write01:08
BitEncryptJlaverne: are you jrib?01:09
JLaverneBitEncrypt, no lol. why?01:09
afeijoregeya, aye! but it is disabled, I formated the drive, restarted the app, and its still disabled01:09
gudmundhi i got a problem with my sound01:09
BitEncryptjlaverne: would you be willing to help install a driver01:10
BitEncryptjlaverne: source code01:10
JLaverneBitEncrypt, sure. which one01:10
regeyaoy vey.01:10
BitEncryptjlaverne: d-link ethernet01:10
JLaverneBitEncrypt, do you already have the source files downloaded?01:10
BitEncryptjlaverne: yes01:10
ohshaith55nvm. i'll be back tomorrow.01:11
* regeya waits for someoen to direct him to #ubuntu-yi01:11
gudmundi got an Asus Eee 1001px with ubuntu 10.04, first everything worked, but when i plugged headset there was no sound...01:11
JLaverneBitEncrypt, can i have a link to the download? then i can tell you exactly what to do01:11
Emanonoh hehe regeya i have irc in the background (im doing many things) so i miss things sometimes01:12
rbasticWhat are peoples overall experiences with the proprietary Nvidia drivers? (particularly those available for Linux 64-bit from nvidia.com)01:12
rbasticI hate to do it, but I want compiz-fusion to run well... Can't do it without them.01:12
Emanoni've been happy with them rbastic01:12
BitEncryptjlaverne: i will PM you01:12
JLaverneplease post the link here01:12
Emanonand they ARE proprietary but at least nvidia provides them for us01:12
pksadiqI  use Nvidia and ubuntu 64bit01:13
=== ohshaith55 is now known as ohshaith55|dead
Emanonand i do wish theyd make them open but it is their right not to01:13
rbasticSo, do you install the driver from the site or do you use a packaged one?01:13
JLaverneBitEncrypt, please talk on the channel01:13
rbastici.e. via Synaptic or via nvidia.com01:13
aguitelme too01:13
Emanoni use the hardware driver finder most times but sometimes i grab the latest from their site01:13
pksadiqit's nice to see compiz-fusion-extra01:13
jrgpI run lucid and every once in a blue moon my up arrow key stops working. The only way of fixing it is to restart. I really don't feel like restarting right now. What can I try?01:14
bribroderthey're definitely better supported than ati cards01:14
rbasticrestart x ? :p01:14
BitEncryptjlaverne: their is no download link...but i do have instructions. can i pm them to you01:14
rbasticctrl-alt-backspace maybe01:14
duffydack!dontzap | rbastic01:15
ubotturbastic: To re-enable the Ctrl-Alt-Backspace combination that restarts your X server see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/DontZap01:15
joshritgerwhat is the app that is used to manage users in gnome, I did an install from the net install disk and don't have the user editor01:15
rbasticOoooh, I see.01:15
JLaverneBitEncrypt, i would prefer to stay on the channel. is there an install text file, or a readme file included with the source code?01:15
cwryuuHmmm, there's not a vmware image of 10.4 desktop floating around somewhere is there?01:15
BitEncryptjlaverne: yes01:15
bribroderjoshritger, i think you want gdm01:15
jrgprbastic: yeah it probably is an X issue since the key works on the virtual consoles01:15
JLaverneBitEncrypt, open the install one01:15
gudmunddoes anyone with linux skills got some time? i got a netbook sound problem :/01:15
rbasticthat's incredibly strange01:15
jrgpgudmund: what's up?01:16
joshritgerbribroder: I have gdm, I am talking about the app used to edit users, not log on and off01:16
duffydackcwryuu, probably, but would you trust it?  download the iso, and install yourself.01:16
jrgprbastic: yes well I wonder if it has anything to do with vnc. I connected to my desktop via x11vnc a few hours ago01:16
pksadiqBefore installing nvidia drivers you need to backlist some installed drivers, Google for  more details01:16
gudmundfirst the sound seemed good, but when i plugged headset the sound dissapeared01:16
victorhHi! Two days ago there was a guy here who said that ubuntu 8.04 has a bug when using "sudo -k echo "password" | ...". But I don't remember the command to use. I wanna try it here.01:16
gudmundso i installed new alsa drivers like described here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/InstallingLinuxAlsaDriverModules01:16
rbasticjrgp, maybe01:17
BitEncryptjlaverne: their "rhine"01:17
bribroderjoshritger, it's users-admin01:17
gudmundnow the headset work, but not the mic anymore01:17
JLaverneBitEncrypt, im not following you... are you familiar with terminal?01:17
jrgprbastic: I'm kind of not inclined to restart X since I've got some vm's running under virtualbox that are acting as servers. Can I make them go to the background or somehow not depend on X running?01:18
macovictorh: it was:   sudo -k && echo "fakepassword" | sudo -p "" -S bash -c 'whoami > output' > /dev/null && cat output01:18
BitEncryptjlaverne: no01:18
cwryuuduffydack: the one's I see on rapidshare probably not. Was hoping to avoid having to do another ISO install (the 10th in the last 7 days) but oh well :/01:18
JLaverneBitEncrypt, move the whole source folder to your desktop01:18
victorhthank you, maco01:18
JLaverneBitEncrypt, just drag and drop01:18
macovictorh: they said itd say "root" but i dont see that happening...though i probably need to actually use sudo before i can sudo -k so lets see...01:18
BitEncryptjlaverne: it is in a folder on my DT01:19
joshritgerbribroder: do you know if that is part of a package, I get nothing in synaptic01:19
macovictorh: mm nope still doesnt. it just tells me incorrect password three times01:19
victorhmaco: it's true01:19
victorhmaco: "root01:19
JLaverneBitEncrypt, what is the name of the folder01:19
TuplarioHi, I was wondering if anyone knows how to get automatic spellchecking for all X apps?01:19
duffydackcwryuu, surely, having the ISO is quicker to install then downloading already installed from who knows where01:19
BitEncryptjlaverne: Linux01:19
JLaverneBitEncrypt, when you open that folder what is inside it?01:20
BitEncryptjlaverne: thats right off of the cd01:20
bribroderit's part of gnome-system-tools01:20
victorhmaco: I got this message, but when I was on 10.0401:20
bribroderyou'll get a bunch of other stuff with it01:20
BitEncryptjlaverne: rhine.h01:21
macovictorh:  im on 10.10 and it tells me "Sorry, try again" 3 times then "sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts"01:21
elliot_I have warcraft 3 running but I can't see it, the music is still going but it is minimised and there is no icon01:21
JLaverneBitEncrypt, what happens if you open that?01:21
victorhmaco: maybe the problem was solved to 10.*01:21
gudmundjrgp_: you dont know anything for my error?01:22
victorhmaco: or to > 8.0401:22
jrgpgudmund: sorry no idea01:22
jrgpgudmund: have you looked through the volume control settings? at the switches?01:22
cwryuuduffydack: true true, I'll probably just do an install once, shutdown the vm, then copy it for future use01:22
gudmundyes i have tried all switches...01:23
BitEncryptjlaverne: it opens gedit, and its source code01:23
jrgpgudmund: I wish I could help you further but I honestly haven't a clue01:23
gudmundi removed   linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.32-24-generic and  linux-backports-modules-alsa-lucid-generic01:23
JLaverneBitEncrypt, that is strange. there are no other files in the Linux folder?01:23
gudmundand installed   linux-alsa-driver-modules-2.6.32-24-generic01:24
gudmundthanx anyhow01:24
BitEncryptjlaverne: their are 13 files in that folder01:24
JLaverneBitEncrypt, is there a file named "MAKE"?01:24
afeijowhat else can I do to enable the extra space to the create initializable disk app?01:24
noisewaterphdhey, I really, really, want something like Xshell for Ubuntu: http://www.netsarang.com/products/xsh_detail.html what are the options?01:24
BitEncryptjlaverne: yes "makefile"01:24
snow_usais it possible to apt-get install somepackage without root permission ? ( I may want to install it in my home dir)01:24
macovictorh: i'll spin up an 8.04 vm when i get home tonight and have a look01:25
possomcrasthey guys just dual booted 10.4 for the first time01:25
JLaverneBitEncrypt, open terminal and type "cd ~/Desktop/Linux" without the quotes01:25
macovictorh: since 8.04 is still supported on servers01:25
noisewaterphdsnow-usa: I believe apt itself requires elevated permissions01:25
macovictorh: ok its still supported on desktop too, just not much longer01:25
gionnicoi installed UNR 10.04 in my aspire one a100 and updated the kernel (0-day update after fresh install). well I LOST THE BOOTSPLASH! Now weird text appears and it's not even aligned. every line has a different position in the screen01:26
noisewaterphdcome on, there has to be a great terminal manager for linux01:26
gionnicowhy and how can I restore the cute bootsplash?01:26
BitEncryptjlaverne: ok01:26
JLavernegionnico, same problem here, ive just been ignoring it01:26
macogionnico: the misalignedness is normal01:26
gionnicomaco: but it's ugly: why did it work after fresh install?01:26
macogionnico: check that plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo is installed?01:26
gionnicois it a kernel issue? maco the write appears for few seconds01:27
noisewaterphdeven something like putty connection manager would be better than nothing01:27
gionnicothen it's screwed up by text.. [ok] stuff01:27
joshritgerwhat group does a user have to be part of to allow shutting down, I currently have to log off then shutdown from gdm01:27
gionnico*the write I mean the logo01:27
macogionnico: no, plymouth not displaying shouldnt be related to the kernel in any way01:27
victorhmaco: yes. I will talk with alexander later to tell him it worked in my ubuntu01:27
macovictorh: which version are you on?01:27
JLaverneBitEncrypt, ready for the next step?01:27
BitEncryptjlaverne: ye01:28
fugdnscerdquestion about system cloning... Wondering if its possible to use a boot image from an amd 32 bit machine on an intel 32 bit machine01:28
gionnicoJLaverne: do you have plymouth installed?01:28
JLaverneBitEncrypt, now type "sudo make" without the quotes01:28
victorhmaco: i'm on 8.0401:28
macovictorh: k01:28
JLavernegionnico, yes, latest version01:28
gionnicoJLaverne: i hope at least it will be fixed soon01:28
gionnicoi think they care more when they release kernel for a media01:29
victorhmaco: sorry, I'm on Ubuntu 8.10 - Intrepid Ibex01:29
macogionnico, JLaverne:  when you boot, hold down shift to get to the grub menu. hit 'e' to edit the boot line. see if "quiet splash" is in there. if its not, add it to the end of the long vmlinuz line01:29
gionnicoor anyways if it isn't kernel, any package in general01:29
JLavernegionnico, but plymouth-theme-ubuntu-logo was not installed, as maco suggested01:29
rbasticHello, back again. How do I kill X to run the Nvidia installer script?01:29
macovictorh: 8.10's not supported anymore ;-) but 8.04 is so i'll talk to security team folks01:30
JLavernemaco, thank you, ill try that after i finish helping on here01:30
BitEncryptjlaverne: ok01:30
macoJLaverne: if you didnt have that package installed, then the vmlinuz line wont matter01:30
JLaverneBitEncrypt, now type "sudo make install" without the quotes01:30
JLavernemaco, ok. so installing it should fix it?01:30
victorhmaco: i didn't know that :D let me try this command on my server01:31
macoJLaverne: both that package and the instructions to make use of it need to be there.  the line *shouldnt* have changed at random, so having that package not be installed is likely the issue01:31
victorhmaco: how do i check the version in terminal?01:31
LabanMan.... my machine just hates Nvidias own drivers.01:31
BitEncryptjlaverne: ok01:31
macovictorh: lsb_relese -a01:31
macovictorh: er.... lsb_release -a01:31
JLaverneBitEncrypt, that should be it. does it work now?01:31
joshritgerI need help with user groups, which group does a user have to be in, in order to shut down the machine? I have to log out first then hit shutdown01:31
macojoshritger: admin, i think01:32
BitEncryptjlaverne: :1695: error: ‘CHECKSUM_HW’ undeclared (first use in this function)01:32
joshritgerhmm, I thought I was in that one, will check01:32
BitEncryptjlaverne plus manu more01:32
gionnicojoshritger: you can just cat /etc/group | grep 'main user'01:32
victorhmaco: Description:Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS01:33
gionnicothis will tell you what groups belong to the 1st user you created01:33
victorhmaco: Sorry, try again.01:33
victorhsudo: 1 incorrect password attempt01:33
gionnicoand will give you a hint on what group you want for other users01:33
Tempus_Fugitok I need some help implementing some of these ideas on this page for security http://www.itsecurity.com/features/ubuntu-secure-install-resource/01:33
JLaverneBitEncrypt, gahh. what is the model of dlink card you have?01:33
c0nfusedi need help with my boot up of ubuntu i need to keep the cd for it to boot up even tho i have it installed it says Warning cannot boot up because a error in syntax cant cd to imit.d01:33
victorhmaco: it did not work01:33
macovictorh: sounds like it was a bug in 8.04 two years ago but not anymore then01:33
joshritgergionnico: the user I am trying to fix is the first/only user, the install was a minimal install from the minimal disk, I started with xfce then added gnome01:34
dclakeI need help I'm running maverick beta and all my windows open maximixed01:34
BitEncryptjlaverne: DFE-530TX+01:34
joshritgerIt didn't have the user settings changer or anything01:34
victorhmaco: yeah, sounds true01:34
JLavernemaco, thank you. it doesnt really bother me, but if it is that easy to fix it then great lol01:34
joshritgerI got that now, but still can't shut down from inside gnome01:34
gionnicoi have another trouble: I updated 8.04->10.04. i did fresh install but just keep /home partition. well i have a canon eos 350D rebel XT digital reflex camera but gphoto (PTP) doesn't work ANYMORE01:34
Tempus_Fugitalot of things on their need to be compiled and I would like to learn but havent had to do that yet01:35
gionnicoif i plug the camera i get error and if i unplug it well the camera remains screwed up and ANY COMPUTER can read it using PTP. i have to remove battery..01:35
noisewaterphdgionnico: don't use gphoto, but did you upgrade it?01:35
gionniconoisewaterphd: as i said i did fresh install. i'm sure in 2 years gphoto was updated01:35
ssfdre38how can i un-install vsftpd on a ubuntu server?01:36
gionnicobut i still have the old config files01:36
JLaverneBitEncrypt, i will try to find something compiled for you to install with one click01:36
gionnicofor everything. gnome eog, f-spot gphoto : all my config files01:36
BitEncryptjlaverne THX01:36
gionnicoand dont know which could be broken by an updated package01:36
dclakeI also have a problem that in my "tweet box" I cant type anything01:36
macoTempus_Fugit: the "permit root login" thing for ssh doesnt really matter on a normal ubuntu install since root has no password... try as much as you want, you cant brute force a non-existent password01:36
noisewaterphdgionnico: OH, I thought you just updated the OS, I missed the fresh install thing01:36
gionnicoconfig files should auto-update and new version should cope with old version config files01:36
gionnicofresh install but i kept /home01:37
gionnicoit was in a separate partition and told to use that during installation01:37
ssfdre38how can i un-install vsftpd from ubuntu server01:37
Tempus_Fugitmaco: ok so what about the other issues with a firewall and securing during boot01:37
noisewaterphdgionnico: install the medibuntu repositories and see if that gets your canon functionality back01:37
JLaverneBitEncrypt, http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/redhat-fedora-linux-help/84076-d-link-dfe-530tx-netword-card-doesnt-work.html01:38
JLaverneBitEncrypt, read the last post. that may help you a lot more than i can01:38
noisewaterphdgionnico, I sort of remember needing a few libraries from medibuntu to get my XTI working in lucid01:38
=== pfifo is now known as asus-fanboy
macoTempus_Fugit: for booting i'd say if they have physical access you're screwed anyway. they can boot from a live cd to get root, pull your hard drive, pop the cmos battery to reset the bios password if you use one of those to lock it... there is no security if there's physical access01:39
Tempus_Fugitmaco: cuz there is def something going on with my system that I am trying to figure out for example I cant go to certain sites.....for example facebook times oout everytime i try01:39
noisewaterphdgionnico: I am just shooting in the dark though without a pastebin of your logs01:39
macoTempus_Fugit: i'd use traceroute (mtr -nt facebook.com) to debug that01:39
gionniconoisewaterphd: theres something weird because the same camera works on fresh install UNR 10.04 !!01:39
macoTempus_Fugit: and as to the firewall... by default no services listen on any ports. that means its equivalent to DROP all. if you're running a server, you may want to limit ssh to your usual IP range or something like that though01:40
noisewaterphdgionnico: ah, yes, then pastebin as verbose of a log as you can get then and we'll track it down01:40
looterhello all.  I am trying to install eclipse 3.5 which is a newer version not in the repos but I am having some trouble.  I have untarred the archive and I see the eclipse executable but everytime I try to run it from the command prompt I get a message saying eclipse is not installed.  anyone help?01:40
macoTempus_Fugit: and now my battery dies01:40
Tempus_Fugitmaco: I am not so much worried about physical access as I am curious if someone has a finger in my system I know it can be done, I am just trying to learn as much about this OS as quickly as possible so that I can at least be defensive in security01:40
gionniconoisewaterphd: ok i dont have that machine now. i'll be back here then01:41
BitEncryptjlaverne: THX01:41
tensorpuddinglooter: you probably need to install it01:42
JLaverneBitEncrypt, i have to leave to fix a business computer. i hope i was of some help. if not, someone else on here will be able to help you01:42
tensorpuddinglooter: it's likely that it requires some sort of configuration to work01:42
Tempus_FugitI would say to assume that just because not only Ubuntu as well as Linux in general are more secure than most windows systems that does not make them impervious to attack or intrusion01:42
afeijowhat else can I do to enable the extra space to the create initializable disk app?01:42
gionnicoTempus_Fugit: i can't trust windows. how can i know there's no backdoor? indeed, i'm pretty sure WGA does IS indeed a backdoor and that there are backdoors since vista and XP SP301:43
lootertensorpudding:  the tutorial online I am following just says to create a launcher for it point to that executable....what am I missing?01:43
tensorpuddinglooter: well, i'm assuming that you have all the java requirements installed01:43
noisewaterphdlooter: here is what I like to do for eclipse: do not install from repos, causes depenency hell if you need plugins. 1. Download the eclipse that you need 2. Create a folder called Apps, or Applications in your Home Folder. chmod -R 777 Apps/. 3. Unzip eclipse and put the eclipse folder in your Apps dir 4. double click the eclipse icon inside the eclipse folder01:43
lootertensorpudding: correct01:43
noisewaterphdlooter: also make sure you are running Sun Java, not OpenJDK01:44
lootertensorpudding: i believe its Sun Java anyway to confirm for sure?01:44
noisewaterphdlooter: from command line: java -version01:45
lootertensorpudding: java version "1.6.0_20"01:45
looterJava(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)01:45
looterJava HotSpot(TM) Server VM (build 16.3-b01, mixed mode)01:45
tensorpuddingthe eclipse from the repositories works fine with openjdk01:45
Tempus_Fugitgionnico: yeah well I love linux specifically Ubuntu and telling everyone I know they should at least try it out......However if I intend on being a courteous tour guide I should at least know what I am talking about.....so I digress back to having to learn a lot one time which I am enjoying tremendously Im actually having to use my brain again01:45
noisewaterphdlooter: ya that is sun01:46
hackelDoes the shitty binary Nvidia driver just have huge memory leaks or does Ubuntu's Xorg have a problem?  After just 3 days uptime my Xorg is using 1.6G resident memory...really pissing me off.01:46
lootertensorpudding: i am trying to install Android SDK and it recommends 3.4 or greater01:46
noisewaterphdtensorpudding: many eclipse plugins DO NOT work with openjdk01:46
tensorpuddingSo don't use those plugins?01:46
lootertensorpudding: thx for your help I am gonna go give it a whirl01:47
noisewaterphdtensorpudding: or if you need them, just use Sun Java until OpenJDK can get its crap together01:47
tensorpuddingI don't see what this has to do with looter's error01:47
gionnicohackel: do you use compiz?01:47
tensorpuddingAnyway, isn't the version of Eclipse in lucid 3.5?01:49
tensorpuddingThat's what I have installed.01:49
noisewaterphdtensorpudding: nothing, he was asking how to make his DOWNLOADED eclipse distro work properly01:49
lootertensorpudding: same thing.  I am not getting anything when I click on it from nautilus and am getting the same message when I run from command line.  Might I have to make the eclipse file executable somehow?01:49
noisewaterphdtensorpudding: the eclipse from the repos works fine, and works fine on openJDK01:50
tensorpuddinglooter: it should be executable already01:50
hackelgionnico, yes, but I don't remember it ever being this bad before...01:50
lootertensorpudding: thats what I was thinking but it is behaving like it isn't.  I am really close here has to be something really minor I am missing01:50
victorhHi, I was thinking in compile linux kernel to enable just the modules I use. How can I surely know which modules I'm using? Using "lsmod" command is enough?01:50
tensorpuddinglooter: I can tell you that I have the Android SDK working fine on the Eclipse from the repos, which is 3.5.201:50
Tempus_Fugitis anyone running 10.1001:51
tensorpudding!ubuntu+1 | Tempus_Fugit01:51
lootertensorpudding: well shit then01:51
ubottuTempus_Fugit: Maverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10 - Maverick is NOT released and is NOT stable - Discussion and support only in #ubuntu+101:51
gionnicohackel: yeah no if ram size increases when you do nothing or after you close something there's a leak. i can't help further01:51
Tempus_FugitI got a partial update like 4 days ago and it never finished01:51
afeijohow can I create an usb bootable disk?01:51
twymerafeijo: unetbootin01:51
tensorpuddingafeijo: unetbootin is one way01:51
noisewaterphdlooter, tensorpudding, I'm not running eclipse from repos, but can also confirm that Android SDK works fine here as well01:52
Tempus_Fugitty ubottu01:52
afeijodoes that unetbootin create extra space in the usb so I can install my apps?01:52
BitEncryptpermission denied when making a temp folder....why?01:52
BitEncryptsudo mkdir /temp01:52
noisewaterphdBitEncrypt: sudo01:53
noisewaterphdso nobody has a good recommendation on a terminal session manager for Ubuntu?01:53
tensorpuddingterminal session manager?01:54
tensorpuddinglike tmux?01:54
tensorpuddingor do you mean something else01:54
MrPPSnoisewaterphd: i like byobu/screen myself01:55
noisewaterphdtensorpudding: ya, like tmux, but I just don't like it much01:55

willUbuntu LiveUSB -- is there any way to mount the USB drive that the LiveUSB is installed on?02:13
khelvanrbastic - If you install Windows after Ubuntu it will overwrite the boot system, but you can just run update-grub (with Grub2 at least) and it should set itself up, including the Windows partition.02:13
hackelkhelvan, well that would add it as a PulseAudio device, then you can run pavucontrol to switch audio between devices.02:14
Jordan_Urbastic: Yes, and it's usually part of the software's DRM.02:14
khelvanrottie - Yes, it is an easy fix. Start here: http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=2&ved=0CBcQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fubuntuforums.org%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D1195275&ei=f8yOTJW9IIy8sAPb_NydCw&usg=AFQjCNHsPsdiLiSfK_ARNS8auvRfO0S4KQ02:14
hackelkhelvan, I guess you have to install the pavucontrol package for that.  Of course, this is assuming that your mixer settings are correct.02:15
Jordan_Ukhelvan: update-grub just re-writes /boot/grub/grub.cfg. You need grub-install to actually restore grub after installing windows.02:15

seduloustrojan_spike: it depends on how well the integration is implemented. it obviously adds more bridges between the host and the guest than a plain VM that just display an image inside a window, without clipboard or mouse pointer sharing. of course that's absolutely not an issue as long as you're not dealing with hazardous, evil guests :)02:28

hackelkhelvan, I've never even looked at the Profile settings before, to be honest.  Not sure about them.  I've only got stereo on my TV anyway, so never bothered.02:38
Aemaethsedulous, not failed, but if torrents come up before drive is mounted, since it references the mount point it creates the folders, and mounts the real harddrive in a new location02:38

csmith1994Jordan_U I don't know. The problem is, it kind of just flashes off and then back to the command line boot screen02:39
hackelkhelvan, When you are playing audio, under "playback", you can click the button to the right of the application name to switch it between the devices.  For me the labels are meaningless (e.g. my HDMI out is labelled "Internal Audio").02:39

csmith1994Jordan_U: I have a Gateway netbook, I don't know if that helps. Are you familiar with processing or Java, because does the x or y coordinate come first in the window, because my screen is 1024*600, and i made it 640*48002:40
teegorRepeated, I'm on Ubuntu 10.04, trying to associate a program (google voice's plugin) to interact specifically with a USB headset and not play sound over the internal audio / my speakers. I have pavucontrol installed, and it'll let me associate it once, but then when I go to use it again it defaults to the speakers again. Any tips for making the association permanent, i.e. make it the default output for that program, without making ...02:41
teegor... the headset default for everything else?02:41
Jordan_Ucsmith1994: I'm familiar with java, but this is universal. Resolutions are always widthXhight (note that coordinates can sometimes differ).02:42
khelvanhackel - I have three devices under Playback - HDMI, Internal Audio, and Internal Audio 5.1. Assuming I don't have to stop and restart audio altogether to test, none of the settings work.02:42

csmith1994OK I'll ask again because it's been a while and I don't think anyone can see it anymore. My query is that processing (processing.org) doesn't work on my system. a simple program crashes my system, which simply changes the window size and the background02:50
khelvanAemaeth - I am not sure, but you could probably use gstreamer to do that, of course you'd have to write a pretty intensive script02:50
justine777wanyone knowledgeable of setting up printers not compatible with Ubuntu 9.10, such as the Dell 720 Printer?02:52
Aemaethkhelvan, webcamstudio is a oddly gui heavy version, which can stream to another webcam output, but it doesn't work with skype :(02:52
khelvanAemaeth, see if guvcview can help you, if not you can also try luvcview, which is a non-GUI UVC viewer02:52
Jordan_Ucsmith1994: This is somwewhat more a work around than a solution but you might want to run processing within xephyr. Xephyr allows you to start a second X server within a window, so an application will think that it's full screen when it's not and if an application tries to change the resolution it will just change the size of the window.02:53
khelvanCan anyone tell me how to change an IEC958 channel to "PCM Out" in alsamixer?02:54

mbrigdanvirusdesirius, If you're using gnome, you can enter it with its unicode number03:02
khelvanhackel - One problem I see is that even though my motherboard is showing an IEC958 device in aplay -l, alsamixer doesn't have an IEC958 device listed. So I must be doing something wrong.03:03

virusdesiriushow can I tell if I'm using gnome? I installed ubuntu 10.04 yesterday03:03
virusdesiriusGuess I am, there is a "about gnome" app03:03
matthewlthune3: thanks, this is a test machine I'm trying to figure this out on. I'm mainly a BSD guy, and that drops right to a shell for any fstab problems. Right now, I just see: "/dev/sda1: clean", and the number of blocks a files on the partition. It just sits there forever afterwards trying to mount /dev/sdc1, which doesn't currently exist.03:04

MalvoroHi everybody03:05
mbrigdanvirusdesirius, First, you need to find its unicode ID, which isn't normally to hard, except I can't google for your symbol. Do you know what its called?03:05
chowdervirusdesirius: that's the logical operator for "not03:05
chowder¬a = not "a"03:05

virusdesiriusand how do I get its unicode?03:07
justine777whiexpo: do you know how to set up the Dell 720 printer on Ubuntu 9.10?03:07
mbrigdanvirusdesirius, So, what you need to do, is hold Shift+Ctrl then type "u", followed by "00AC" (Without the quotes, and still holding Shift+Ctrl). Then, let go of Shift+Ctrl and it should type the character.03:07
hiexpojustine777w, no sorry again i do not03:08
justine777wdoes anyone know how to set up a dell 720 printer in Ubuntu 9.10?03:08
chowderjustine777w: why not upgrade to 10.04 first?03:08
mbrigdanvirusdesirius, I found its unicode id on http://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/search.htm , you can use it to find other characters if you want.03:08
chowderalso, did you check to see that your printer is linux compatible?03:09

ToddEDMJordan_U no such device03:56
Jordan_UToddEDM: What devices are listed by "ifconfig"?03:57
tensorpuddinggerinych: i mean, you're in the directory with the script03:57
tensorpuddinggerinych: that is, you cd'd to /media/cdrom/ and did ./linux_installer.sh03:57
gerinychtensorpudding: right03:57
tensorpuddinggerinych: it'd be hard to figure out what the issue is without reading the script03:58
tensorpuddinggerinych: is that error the only one?03:58
nicnichow do I specify the installation drive when using the alternative cd?03:58
ToddEDMJordan_U, ummm 'ifconfig'gave me some output, but doesnt look like any actual physical devices03:58
gerinychtensorpudding: well, it says parser error about "setup.data/setup.xml"03:59
ToddEDMlink encap:local loopback03:59
Jordan_Ugerinych: Can you pastebin the output of "head -n 500 /media/cdrom0/linux_installer.sh" ?03:59
Jordan_UToddEDM: Anything in the form ethN where N is a number?03:59
lkso much04:00

larsendtHi everybody. I'm having troubles with the rtl8187se wireless card in the Eeepc701sd. It worked fine in jaunty and karmic, but lucid doesn't seem to recognize it. Any suggestions? I'm using the UNR 10.04.04:00
nicnicabhijit: ahh, good to confirm, thanks04:01
jferi would try using the windows driver with ndiswrapper04:01
abhijitnicnic, till then why dont you just have alook at forum or document for alternate cd?04:01
yonahwI am trying to install 10.04 on an hp xw6000 which has an adaptec 7902 scsi controller. I can't even get to the installation menu as initramfs fails on mounting /dev/loop0. Anybody have any ideas on how to do this?04:01
Jordan_UToddEDM: That's a problem I don't think I've ever encountered before :)04:01
nicnicit doesn't mention anything about changing the target drive as strange as that may sound04:01
nicnicthat is not without creating a custom install cd so far04:02
Jordan_UToddEDM: Here are instructions for getting your wireless working at least: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#b43/STA%20-%20No%20Internet%20access04:02
nicnicwhich seems like overkill04:02
ToddEDMJordan_U , thanks04:02
dbernar1Jordan_U: well I sorta do, why?04:03
abhijitnicnic, hmm04:03
Jordan_UToddEDM: You're welcome.04:03
dbernar1I am trying to make it do that now with mkfs. But I am running into the problem of not knowing how to use it.04:03
abhijit!manual | nicnic see this04:03
ubottunicnic see this: The Ubuntu Manual will help you become familiar with everyday tasks such as surfing the web, listening to music and scanning documents. With an emphasis on easy to follow instructions, it is suitable for all levels of experience. http://ubuntu-manual.org/04:03
larsendtWhoops. I may have found the solutions.04:04
nicnicthanks, will take a look04:04
tensorpuddinggerinych: try 'grep setup.data linux_installer.sh'04:04
tensorpuddinggerinych: it might be in setup.sh04:04
jferi would like to install the latest version of eclipse helios does anyone know if a deb package is available?04:04
dbernar1Jordan_U: I am told by fdisk that my partition names are /dev/sdb1p1 and /dev/sdb1p1, but thos don't exist in /dev04:04
Jordan_Udbernar1: You might want to stick with gparted. If not, you'll need to use "sudo mkfs.vfat /dev/sdXY" (and be *very* carefull that you choose the right device).04:04
dbernar1Jordan_U: so mkfs complains if I tell it that04:04
gerinychtensorpudding: "Binary file linux_installer.sh matches"04:05
tensorpuddingjfer: Helios is 3.6 right? Ubuntu only has 3.504:05
nicnicabhijit: this is for 10.04 which works fine and picks sda instead of sdb, the issue is with 9.1004:05
dbernar1Jordan_U: I am being careful, yeah :)04:05
goddardwhat a good pic programmer for linux cheap to?04:05
nicnicjust wanted to find out if there was a generic and simple way to specify the drive04:05
jferyes that is right04:05
Jordan_Udbernar1: You've added a partition table to a partition, you probably didn't intend to do that.04:05
nicnichad to downgrade from 10.04 because insight has been removed04:05
abhijitnicnic, ok. then look inside ubuntuguide.org and ubuntumanual.org04:05
nicnicahh, thanks04:06
jferi have the binary archive can i turn this into a deb?04:06
tensorpuddingjfer: there might be a PPA available for it, maybe04:06
kronospheremy C drive is 1TB, I am doing a Wubi dual boot installation with windows 7, how long should it take for the install of ubuntu to finish?04:06
ActionParsnipgoddard: can you expand on "pic programmer" please. FYI, most Linux software is opensorce and theefore FREE04:07
kronospherei am asking because it is taking a long time, not sure if its a problem, or perhaps due to the 1TB hard drive?04:07
dbernar1Jordan_U: I am partitioning a USB key. Can gparted do that for me?04:07
tensorpuddingkronosphere: depends on how fast your computer is, but i'd guess somewhere around 20-30 minutes04:07
abhijitjfer, http://www.webupd8.org/2010/01/how-to-create-deb-package-ubuntu-debian.html and http://www.linuxfordevices.com/c/a/Linux-For-Devices-Articles/How-to-make-deb-packages/04:08
Jordan_Udbernar1: Yes, and you've used fdisk incorrectly.04:08
dbernar1Jordan_U: looks like.04:08
tensorpuddingjfer: if you really wanted to package 3.6, you should probably talk with the people who are maintaining the eclipse package04:08
TschackoRock da dancefloor04:08
goddardActionParsnip I'm not that familar with it so I was hoping some one could point me to good hardware / software package maybe that makes it easy to learn04:08
ActionParsnipkronosphere: depends on a whole slew of things, there is no single answer. FWIW wubi is god awful. Win7 can resize its own partitions and allow you to do a true boot so the performance will not be affected by the incredible shortcomings of NTFS04:08
Tschackoi_is_broke: how04:08
kronospheretensorpudding: is it normal for themonitor to go into sleep mode during the installation?04:08
nicnicanyone know how to specify the target drive when using the alternative cd?04:08
Tschackoi am a poweruser04:08
ActionParsnipgoddard: learn waht exactly?04:08
Jordan_Udbernar1: You probably ran "sudo fdisk /dev/sdb1" rather than "sudo fdisk /dev/sdb". But whatever the reason, it's probably best to just stick with gparted.04:08
jferdo you know the irc channel?04:08
dbernar1right right that's what I did04:08
tensorpuddingkronosphere: that depends on how your power-saving settings are setup04:09
dbernar1Jordan_U: ! thanks04:09
abhijitjfer, irc channel for what?04:09
nicnicie it's not listing when selecting manual partitioning04:09
Jordan_Udbernar1: You're welcome.04:09
tensorpuddingjfer: it's probably not a huge amount of work to adapt the old packaging files to 3.604:09
TschackofloodBot1: 404:09
abhijitjfer, #eclipse04:09
jferok thanks04:09
Tschackoi am superdong04:09
IdleOneTschacko: stop that please04:09
tensorpuddingjfer: the maintainers probably have an email, that would be available from packages.ubuntu04:09
yonahwcan anybody help me with installing from busybox. when I try to boot from cd it fails to mount /dev/loop0 and just dumps me into busybox with ash shell04:09
ActionParsnipgoddard: I cant  give you pointers on how to learn "it" if you dont tell me what "itI is, can I04:09
Jordan_Unicnic: Do you use any fakeraid?04:10
kronosphereActionParsnip: thank you; so i should just sit back and check it again in 30 minutes, eh? :)04:10
ActionParsnipkronosphere: i guess. I dont use wubi, its rubbish04:10
tensorpuddingjfer: it's actually possible that 3.6 is already packaged for maverick04:10
ActionParsnip!01.10.| tensorpudding04:10
goddardActionParsnip its cool I guess thanks any way04:10
ubottuMaverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10, due October 2010 - Maverick is NOT released and NOT Stable, discussion and support in #ubuntu+104:10
nicnicJordan_U: no, surprisingly, sda and sdb are both listed in dmesg output, however, the installer only shows sdb04:10
dbernar1Jordan_U: and the thing is supposed to be unmounted, right?04:10
kronosphereActionParsnip: it worked wonders on my laptop that had xp in it ....04:10
ActionParsnipgoddard: the whole flow of that conversation made zero sense, just so you know04:11
Jordan_Udbernar1: Correct.04:11
dbernar1Weird, it tells me it can't find /dev/sdb04:11
ActionParsnipkronosphere: ntfs fragments at the drop of a hat, if yuo use wubi you have a drive image on ntfs so the performance will be affected when the drive fragments. If you use a true install you will use ext4 and performance will never degrade04:11
nicnici tried with nodmraid option as well, no cigar04:12
justine777wtrojan_spike: find any useful information?04:12
goddardActionParsnip ok thanks04:12
kronosphereoh, i did not know that04:12
coldboot|homeDoes anyone know why Amarok is linked into Nvidia OpenGL drivers? Here's the error: "amarok: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libGL.so.1: undefined symbol: _nv000132gl".04:12
Jordan_Unicnic: That usually happens when the installer thinks that the drive has fakeraid metadata that it doesn't understand. Rather than writing to it and possably destroying a RAID array it simply doesn't present it as an option (it should really warn the user that it's doing this but that's beside the point).04:12
tensorpuddinggerinych: it might well be a known problem, have you checked the forums for the game?04:12
dbernar1Jordan_U: good it worked this time04:13
dbernar1Jordan_U: can gparted set the bootable flag on my usb key?04:13
dbernar1well, on one of the partitions anyway04:13
dbernar1Jordan_U: got it, never minf04:13
nicnicJordan_U: i will double check the bios, any way to confirm this from a shell?04:13
ActionParsnipcoldboot|home: is there a bug for it?04:13
nicnicand thanks Jordan_U at least i have something to look into now.04:14
Jordan_Unicnic: Probably but I don't personally know how. The work around is to press F6 at the initial boot screen and select the "nodmraid" option.04:14
yonahwhas anyone actually seen my message about not being able to install?04:14
gerinychtensorpudding: ive tried googling for that specific error, but there are no results that involve the game04:15
coldboot|homeActionParsnip: Nope.04:15
trojan_spikeyea,, it needs to be transformed to a package ubuntu can read/use.. i.e .deb04:15
Jordan_Unicnic: Or zero out the beginning of sdb so that there isn't anything that would look like fakeraid metadata on it.04:15
ActionParsnipcoldboot|home: i'd create one then04:15
trojan_spikeeasier said than done tho04:15
trojan_spikeany1 got an easy way to change .gz.sh to .deb??04:16
justine777wtrojan_spike: please see PM04:16
nicnicJordan_U: you are right, this is an old drive and was probably used in a raid config04:16
nicnici will have to look into zeroing it out without having to install redmond os04:16
gerinychtensorpudding: i remember being able to install that game, like, 2 years ago04:17
trojan_spikeaww,, am sure u can sort it justine.. just remember it needs to be a .deb for ubuntu.. ;)04:17
Jordan_Unicnic: I'm not sure I understand, you have a windows install on sda currently that you want to preserve?04:17
nicnici was going to use the free space for ubunutu04:18
nicnicits a tb drive04:18
nicnica 1tb i mean04:19
Jordan_Unicnic: I'd just use the nodmraid option then (if you're sure that the drive isn't actually part of a raid array).04:20
nicnictried the nodmraid option with no cigar04:20
ActionParsnipnicnic: is the windows version win7?04:20
psusiif you have a drive that you previously used as part of a dmraid array and no longer are, you need to remove the raid signatures from it04:21
psusieither using the bios utility or with dmraid -E04:21
nicnicActionParsnip: yes04:21
Jordan_U!who | psusi04:21
ubottupsusi: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)04:21
ActionParsnipnicnic: if you use the win7 tool you can repartition to make free space04:21
gerinychanyone know what happens when you enter "_POSIX2_version=199209" in terminal?04:21
psusiJordan_U, I guess that would be you and nicnic04:21

CrazyTuxwanting to get one for my desktop04:45
seduloustoo bad rtorrent _still_ doesn't support IPv6... especially P2P programs should do that.04:45
Loshkisedulous: I use rtorrent too under vnc. Rtorrent instances are cheap and vnc gives me remote access...04:45
kneauxwhat happened to ipv504:46
sedulousLoshki: that seems like a waste of bandwidth. Why VNC and not SSH?04:46

ubottuCrazyTux: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!04:47
Jordan_Umattw1: You're welcome.04:47
CrazyTuxActionParsnip: thank you04:47
sedulousCrazyTux: the Intel X25-M G2 is still a classic. don't let linear throughput rates fool you. IOPS are much more important.04:47
ActionParsnipLoshki: rtorrent has a web ui, why use a vnc session, makes no sense04:47
duckx0rCan anyone help me with something probably simple? I just installed ubuntu on my kubuntu box and for some reason I am unable to create any files or folders in my home directory, even as sudo. I get the error "mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Invalid argument".04:47
CrazyTuxsedulous: Yea I am kind of new to this whole SSD thing -- am I to expect to run into any compatibilities issues?04:47
sedulousCrazyTux: not that I know of, not at all04:48
Jordan_UCrazyTux: No.04:48
ActionParsnipduckx0r: boot to root recovery mode. then run: cd /home; chown -R foo:foo ./foo      replace foo with your username04:48
sedulousCrazyTux: i installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an Intel X25-M just a few weeks ago and it flies, i mean really.. wow :)04:48
Loshkisedulous: vnc allows rtorrent to keep running even when I'm not viewing it. I use vnc over ssh for secure remote access. Using vnc means it looks the same, local or remote (remote is slower, of course)04:48
duckx0rActionParsnip, I have multiple users, so I don't think that's a good idea04:48
ActionParsnipduckx0r: it only affects foo04:49
duckx0rActionParsnip, oh right, i missed that part. However if it were an ownership problem, wouldn't I be able to create a file with sudo?04:49
sedulousLoshki: you can use GNU Screen for that. it's a terminal multiplexer that allows you to detach and attach. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/72/GNU_Screen.png - notice the "tabs" at the bottom?04:50
sedulousmultiple shells in one "screen" that can be detached and reattached later as a whole04:50
LoshkiActionParsnip: I've never used rtorrent's web gui. How do I access it?04:50
sedulousmuch more bandwidth friendly than VNC04:50
sedulousLoshki: rtorrent itself doesn't have a web interface, however it has an API that can be used by 3rd party web interfaces. ruTorrent is a popular one, afaik.04:51
Jordan_Uduckx0r: What happens if you run "touch /home/you/foo"?04:51
ActionParsnipLoshki: here's one solution: http://www.wtorrent-project.org/trac/04:51
duckx0rJordan_U, hmm it works04:52
Jordan_Uduckx0r: What about just "touch foo" ?04:52
duckx0rJordan_U, still works04:52
Loshkisedulous: gnu screen is the same idea, but vnc gives you a full X11 desktop which is overkill for just rtorrent, but I used it for other things too. tightvnc uses less bandwidth, and nomachine's NX is supposed to be very light indeed...04:52
LoshkiActionParsnip: sedulous: thanks for the references...04:53
Blue1Loshki: i couldn't get tightvnc to work04:53
sedulousLoshki: whatever works for you :) i'm using Screen locally too though04:53
Jordan_Uduckx0r: What about "/bin/mkdir test" ?04:53
duckx0rJordan_U, I guess it's just not letting me create directories, but I can create files just fine04:53
duckx0r/bin/mkdir: cannot create directory `test': Invalid argument04:54
s3223I need a bit of help, am stumped, I need to make a bunch of files to ISO, is there a program for that?04:54

sedulousBlue1: i think he wants to create an ISO image from files, not from a cd/dvd04:56
duckx0rJordan_U, any ideas?04:56
Loshkis3223: I'm with tensorpudding. Use mkisofs or genisoimage e.g. mkisofs -J -R -o output.iso <files>04:57
sedulouss3223: if you prefer graphical tools, try the Brasero burning program. it can create image files.04:57
s3223From multiple other files Sedated04:57
wasnik_hi guys i am tryin to reinstall ubuntu and i just get the ubuntu screen and if i press ctrl del then it says cannot open /dev/sda04:57
sedulous(just a frontend for mkisofs)04:57
s3223I'll try what tensorpudding and Loshki said04:57
sedulousBrasero is the same, just a graphical frontend04:58
tensorpuddingwasnik_: what stage of the install are you at? can you be more specific on what you mean by "can't get to the ubuntu screen?"04:58
duckx0rJordan_U, I can't create any directories, but I can rename currently existing directories just fine. this makes no sense to me04:58
Loshkisedulous: I've always found brasero to be buggy. I prefer k3b. I don't recall if it will create isos though...04:58
Blue1sedulous: yeah mkisofs would do the trick.04:58
s3223I know how to create isos, but from multiple files to create an image04:59
Jordan_Uduckx0r: I'm guessing that you can also create new directories using cp -r to copy existing directories (if this is really just a really odd issue with mkdir).04:59
abhijits3223, use acetoniso04:59
duckx0rJordan_U, no, I can't copy, only mv04:59
Jordan_Uduckx0r: What error do you get from cp?04:59
duckx0rJordan_U, same one05:00
duckx0rInvalid argument05:00
Loshkis3223: just list all the files/directories on the command line with mkisofs. It should build them all into an iso...05:00
=== Guest4168 is now known as tukadafoonday
s3223Thanks abhijit Loshki05:01
s3223abhijit, acetoniso didn't work for me05:01
Jordan_Uduckx0r: Try running "sudo mount tmpfs -t tmpfs /mnt/" then "mkdir /mnt/foo".05:01
s3223It said it will not turn multiple ones into an ISO05:01

Jordan_Uduckx0r: Do you have a separate /home/ partition?05:03
duckx0rJordan_U, yes, I do05:03
ActionParsnip<[styx]> : use:    gksudo gparted05:03

s3223Is it possible to make a ZIP out of all the files and than convert that one file to an ISO?05:04
fuzzybunny69yhey everyone I am trying to use find to give the group execute permissions on all the subdirectories in a certain folder. This is the command I have so far but it doesn't seem to be working: find . -type d -exec "chmod g+x {}" \;05:04
Izinucss3223: why would you do that instead of just creating an iso?05:04
Jordan_Uduckx0r: Could you pastebin the output of "dmesg", and of "strace mkdir test" ?05:04
ActionParsnips3223: put the files in a folder, then the command in the guide I gave will make an ISO of them05:05
wasnik_tensorpudding: as soon as i put in my usb disk containg ubuntu and choose to load ubuntu from usb i get stuck at the ubuntu screen05:05
Loshkis3223: only by unpacking the zip file and then creating an iso. Pretty much the same arguments to create the zip file will make the iso using mkisofs05:05
duckx0rJordan_U, hmm I have a lot of "attempt to access beyond end of device" messages05:05

gsp2009Hey all.05:11
tukadafoondaycan someone tell me... my computer now when it boots to the default kernel it just sits there with a blinking _05:11
tukadafoondayThe only way i can boot is boot into an earlier kernel that is in the grub menu?05:11
kneauxis that the question?05:12
kneauxhave you tried?05:12
Jordan_Uduckx0r: Can you pastebin the output of "sudo fdisk -lu"?05:12
CrazyTuxsedulous: Also one last thing.. thanks for the info so far.. just looking into it more... I want to put this into my Desktop... what "adapter" or converter do I need?05:12
lorenzocabrinitukadafoonday: you can change the default kernel that grub will load05:13
CrazyTuxsedulous: as far as making it physically fit, and anything misc that I would need to buy so from the time I open the case I can get it installed.05:13
tensorpuddingwasnik_: does it just keep blinking dots forever, or does it freeze up?05:13
wasnik_tensorpudding:it keeps blinking dots forever05:13
duckx0rJordan_U, http://pastebin.com/yakjuzNc05:13
tensorpuddingwasnik_: try doing ctrl+alt+f1 while the dots are going05:13
tukadafoondaylorenzocabrini, I know that i can change the default kernel, however i would like the normal kernel to run, not the old one.05:13
lorenzocabrinitukadafoonday: normally the newest kernel should be loaded by default if you haven't changed the priority05:14
sfsdf343How do I use 'mkisofs05:14
Loshkisfsdf343: something like mkisofs -J -R -o output.iso <files and/or directories>05:15
tukadafoondaylorenzocabrini, the newest kernel is loading first, however its not loading, it just hangs one a black screen with a blinking _ in the top left corner. I want to try and troubleshoot why this is happening and how to fix it, though being so new to linux i am not entirely sure how to. Hence why i am here asking.05:15
duckx0rJordan_U, Maybe a fsck wouldn't be such a bad idea05:15
Jordan_Uduckx0r: Definitely, and before that make sure that your backups are up to date.05:16
duckx0rJordan_U, good thinking05:16
UBuntuMacI am here to seek to some help from current macbook pro users05:16
UBuntuMacI have a mid 2010 Macbook pro05:17
tensorpuddingsfsdf343: look under genisoimage, i think mkisofs is a link to that nowadays05:17
wasnik_tensorpudding: all i get is unable to enumerate usb port 205:17
UBuntuMacI tried ubuntu live cd and boy does it run hot05:17
UBuntuMacany advice on keeping it cool while running ubuntu?05:17
ActionParsnipUBuntuMac: keep it slightly raised and off soft surfaces05:17
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you don't get to a login?05:17
UBuntuMacActionParsnip: it just inherently runs hot05:18
UBuntuMacOnce i reboot into OS X it shows me a temperature of 70 C05:18
UBuntuMacwhile it cools down when running OSx on the same surface05:18
sedulousCrazyTux: SSDs are usually 2.5" inch drives while desktops have 3.5" hard disk bays. you'd need an adapter (should cost $1 or also comes with some SSDs)05:18
sedulousCrazyTux: otherwise, nothing. same S-ATA connector as any other drive.05:19
ActionParsnipUBuntuMac: if you can find out the EXACT model yuo can websearch and find guides05:19

LordHawkeActionParsnip, were you talking to me and not CrazyTux?05:22
LordHawkeActionParsnip, If you were, I have only used GNOME. I wanted to try out the others.05:23
wasnik_tensorpudding:the reason I am reinstalling is because when i booted my previous install i get messags sayin cannot open /dev/root, no such file, when i try mountin /dev/sda it says /etc/fstab does not exist05:24
sfsdf343man genisoimage and misko is way too much reading05:24
ActionParsnipLordHawke: good fun  dude. I use LXDE, its slim and fast05:24
sfsdf343I'm looking for a simple program to bundle files to make 1 ISO File, similar to, IMageBurn with windows05:24
tensorpuddingwasnik_: was there any messages suggesting that filesystems failed to mount?05:24
ActionParsnipsfsdf343: mkisofs -R -o <name_new.iso> <directory_where_the_files_are>05:25
wasnik_tensorpudding: yes, when i tried to boot previous installed version, i got messages, coulndt mount /root/dev, no such file or directory05:25
tensorpuddingwasnik_: is this /dev/root or /root/dev?05:25
tensorpuddingwasnik_: are you using LVM2 or some other kind of volume management?05:26
wasnik_tensorpudding: /root/dev05:26
kronosphereActionParsnip: how do i set up a dual boot on win7, using a full install rather than wubi install? I'm thinking of forgetting about the wubi install.05:26
wasnik_tensorpudding: I did ls and it says dev exists, but when i go to root directory its empty05:26
tensorpuddingwasnik_: /dev/root is a symlink to your root partition05:27
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you installed onto a real hard disk, right?05:27
wasnik_tensorpudding:yes i did05:27
ActionParsnipkronosphere: use the win7 disk manager to resize the partition so you have unpartitioned space (make sure backups are suffucuently recent in case of catastrophe). You can then boot to an MD5 tested, CD verified Ubuntu CD and install to the free space05:27
wasnik_tensorpudding: and ubuntu worked fine, untill yesteday when i tried to boot05:27
tensorpuddingwasnik_: did you do anything before that that might cause problems?05:28
ActionParsnipkronosphere: as you have win already installed  the dual boot should be handled automagiacally05:28
tlhonmeyActionParsnip:  the liveCD installer you used for the wubi install should be capable of doing it.  Back up your drive first.05:28
LordHawkeActionParsnip, how would I do so?05:28
ActionParsniptlhonmey: wrong target dude05:28
tensorpuddingwasnik_: like editing config files, installing or removing hardware, shutting down power to the machine without a proper shutdown05:28
tlhonmeyActionParsnip:  Sorry.  Trying to do too many things at once. :S05:29
kronospherehow much unpartitioned space is needed?05:29
ActionParsnipLordHawke: the menu item thing. Very carefully05:29
wasnik_tensorpudding: I went to bios and set the timing for the boot screen message to 5 sec. Then this problem started. But when I went back to bios and loaded the default company settings the problem still exists05:29
ActionParsnipkronosphere: at least 6 or 7 gb to be comfortable05:29
duckx0rJordan_U, Thanks for the help man. I don't have enough room for a /home dir backup so I'm going to get another hard drive tomorrow, make a backup and hope for the best.05:29
ActionParsnipkronosphere: will give you enough space to install as well as upgrade the OS without running out of space05:29
Jordan_Uduckx0r: You're welcome.05:29
tensorpuddingwasnik_: it sounds to me that you either broke configuration, or somehow caused filesystem errors which fsck hasn't fixed yet, or your hard drive is corrupted05:30
tensorpuddingwasnik_: does your hard disk appear in the bios?05:30
kronosphereActionParsnip: i tried doing the wubi install 3 times.05:30
tlhonmeySo, I just upgraded a machine with an Intel 82852 graphics card to Ubuntu 10.04, and now X will only start in safe mode.  Reconfigure fails.  Any easy way to make the safe graphics settings permanent?05:30
ActionParsnipLordHawke: if you copy the applications folder out to back it up you can roll back if things go weird05:30
kronosphereActionParsnip: did those installation attempts do anything to the hard drive?05:30
wasnik_tensorpudding: how do i see that05:30
ActionParsnipkronosphere: possibly wrote a new bootloader, otherwise they just make a few files in the NTFS and  shouldnt interfere with windows' efforts05:31
tensorpuddingwasnik_: there should be a screen that shows the devices that are attached to the ATA and SATA05:31
tensorpuddingit depends on which style of bios you have where it is05:31
will_tensorpudding: Disk Utility?05:32
abhijitbye have a good day.05:32
wasnik_tensorpudding: my bios does not show me anything like that, all there is a command for hard disk test and i tested it today morning and it passed05:33
tensorpuddingwasnik_: what about boot device order? does it show the hard disks?05:33
HeatherHello. I have an HP PSC 2350. I want to see what the ink level is on it. However, checking the print dialog that should show that has the error 'marker levels are not reported for this printer'05:33
Heathergoogling hasn't found anything05:33
ActionParsnipHeather: try grabbing the latest HPLIP from the HPLIP site, it may help05:34
wasnik_tensorpudding: It shows notebook hard drive05:34
tensorpuddingokay, so this is a laptop05:34
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you should try booting again, and when you reach the grub menu where it allows you to choose a kernel to boot from, edit the first option and remove the 'quiet splash' from the line beginning with 'linux'05:36
wasnik_tensorpudding: what is grub menu05:37
tensorpuddingwasnik_: then boot it, and it should boot without showing the ubuntu screen and with all the diagnostic messages showing on the screen05:37
tensorpuddingwasnik_: looks like http://www.howtogeek.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/image55.png05:38

tensorpuddingwasnik_: does it not show up when you boot?05:39
sfsdf343and tensorpudding thanks05:39

glebihantensorpudding, wasnik_: and sometimes there's no message about it05:41
tensorpuddingthis is 10.04 desktop right?05:41

khelvanBlah, I guess Ubuntu isn't the right O/S for an HTPC after all :P05:41
tensorpuddingthis is somewhat silly05:41
kronospheretensorpudding: actionparsnip was instructing me to resise partition so i will have 6-7gb unpartitioned space. To clarify, this means to "shrink" the partition by 6-7GB using disk manager? Is that correct?05:41
tukadafoonday my ubuntu has a problem with the newest kernel and will not load - it only boots to a flashing _ and then hangs, the only way i can get in is to boot into an older kernel. Could someone help me resolve this?05:42
tensorpuddingkronosphere: yes, you can shrink the partition using gparted05:42
wasnik_tensorpudding:got it on shift05:42
tensorpuddingwasnik_: actually, try booting into recovery mode, and see if that works05:43
kronospheretensorpudding: can i shrink the partition using win7 disk management utility?05:43
qpt`hi  i need help anyone here05:43
tensorpuddingkronosphere: almost surely not, since you need to shrink the filesystem as well as the partition05:44

policei don't know... i'm a bit of a noob... its not proprietary tho.. i checked that05:46
tensorpuddingkronosphere: 7 GB is really small for a full Ubuntu desktop install05:46

tensorpuddingkronosphere: and how much software do you see yourself putting on the system?05:47

kronosphereProbably a lot of files. I have a 1TB hard drive, a new win7 install, and have barely used any of it, but i will probably have a lot of media files soon.05:48
tensorpuddingkronosphere: which should always be at least as much as the amount of ram you have05:48
wasnik_tensorpudding: I did what you said,  i deleted quiet splash and pressed ctrl-x to boot, but i got the messages back again05:48

U-b-u-n-t-utensorpudding,  it returned 2.6.32-24-generic05:53
U-b-u-n-t-uso the 32 means 32?05:53
wasnik_tensorpudding:so what do u suggest05:53
zcat[1]irony; getting =Q'd for complaining about a +q05:53
Loshkizcat[1]: if scrot won't work, how about some of these? http://tips.webdesign10.com/how-to-take-a-screenshot-on-ubuntu-linux05:53
tensorpuddingwasnik_: did you see the /etc/fstab does not exist error message again?05:54
kaushalI am using gnome-terminal on Ubuntu 10.04 Linux Desktop, I am connected to a remote server, is there a way to duplicate the session ?05:54
macozcat[1]: seems to be a bot05:54
ihabif I send mail from terminal using mail how can I see sent messages ? I mean outbox or something like that05:54
policehow can i tell what video card and driver i have? my pc locks up whenever i open the screensaver gui05:54
tensorpuddingwasnik_: it would seem that the only way to repair the system will probably be booting into a live environment05:54
wasnik_tensorpudding: /etc/fstab not existin only comes up if i try to use mount command05:55
tensorpuddingpolice: pastebin the dmesg logs05:55
U-b-u-n-t-utensorpudding, uname -m <<< machine??? what my cpu can support but not that I am running?05:55
riverskyanyone know how to use screen?05:55
wasnik_tensorpudding: what is live environment. My cd drive does not work so i have a problem there05:55
tensorpuddingwasnik_: "use the mount command"? you said that it didn't reach a login screen didn't you?05:55
Loshkimaco: seriously? It was such a good question...05:55
riverskyi'm trying to duck down screen and later on screen -r?05:55
policehow do i access the dmsg logs? i'm a noob05:55
tensorpuddingwasnik_: a live environment meaning that you boot from an OS on a removable medium like USB or CDROM05:56
macoLoshki: haha no, not saying zcat[1] is one, but that the other person seems like05:56
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you can make bootable USB sticks using unetbootin05:56
wasnik_tensorpudding: yeah it didnt reach login screen, when i tried to boot, but within the messages i typed mount command05:56
tensorpuddingU-b-u-n-t-u: what do you mean?05:56
tensorpuddingwasnik_: what?05:56
tensorpuddingwasnik_: that doesn't make any sense05:56
Loshkimaco: oops....05:56
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you can't enter commands without logging in05:56
wasnik_tensorpudding: I have tried installing ubuntu using an usb drive, but i got same problem05:56
riverskycan anyone please help me out?05:56
U-b-u-n-t-uwhat is the command to see if i am using 32 or 64... not what my cpu can run but what I am running05:57
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you want a live environment, which is different than an install environment.05:57
U-b-u-n-t-uI know my CPU can support a 64 bit os05:57
kaushalU-b-u-n-t-u: getconf LONG_BIT05:57
tensorpuddingU-b-u-n-t-u: uname -m, like i said05:57
ZykoticK9maco, <ot> are you involved with gentoo as well?  just asking due to zcat[1]'s post including your nic and gentoo on the same line?</ot>05:57
tensorpuddingU-b-u-n-t-u: if it says x86_64 it's 64-bit, otherwise it's not05:57
wasnik_tensorpudding: Once i get these repeating messages that 'cannot enumerate usb port 2", if i type "mount /dev/sda" I get 'no /etc/fstad' file05:58
macoZykoticK9: no i joined that channel to ask about qpt05:58
U-b-u-n-t-utensorpudding, ok but doesnt -m tell what my cpu can run.... but not necessarily what I am running?05:58
tensorpuddingwasnik_: is there a prompt?05:58
wasnik_tensorpudding: could u guide me in to how to make a usb live environment05:58
zcat[1]?! I mentioned gentoo and/or someone's nick?05:58

tensorpuddingwell wait, those aren't helpful necessarily05:59
macozcat[1]: no, qpt did05:59
U-b-u-n-t-uglebihan,  thanks05:59
U-b-u-n-t-utensorpudding,  thanks too05:59
macozcat[1]: everyone has lost the ability to read ;-)05:59
zcat[1]ok so import does the same thing as scrot.05:59
kaushalwasnik_: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent05:59
U-b-u-n-t-utensorpudding, and glebihan I just realized I have sysinfo installed on xchat so I can find out by /sysinfo lol05:59
glebihanU-b-u-n-t-u: works too :)06:00
U-b-u-n-t-uyeah thanks guys06:00
glebihanU-b-u-n-t-u: you're welcome06:00
tensorpuddingwasnik_: well, if /etc/fstab does not exist, then you have some significant problems06:00
wasnik_kaushal:it says i need a live cd, to create a usb live06:00
wasnik_kaushal: where do i get a live cd from06:01
random_Does anyone know much about dvd playback on ubuntu?06:01
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you still have your installation usb right?06:02
U-b-u-n-t-uI have one more question... is anyone here using gyachi? and if so how is it?06:02
glebihan!anyone | random_06:02
ubotturandom_: 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?06:02
tensorpuddingwasnik_: there should be an option to "try ubuntu from the cd" when you boot up06:02
U-b-u-n-t-umaybe I cant ask that here?06:02
zcat[1]been through the whole page, only scrot and import will do a screenshot without prompting me for filename etc.. and both make the screen freeze briefly, which is what I'm trying to get around06:03
zcat[1]any idea why they freeze the screen?06:03
Morphene!seen bodwick06:03
ubottuI have no seen command06:03
random_I'd like to use ubuntu as a media center, I know how to get dvd playback enabled. I'm wondering if there is anyway to get it to remember the last place it was on a dvd when i put it in06:03
ZykoticK9random_, see my note for dvd playback at http://sites.google.com/site/alucidfs/how-i-do/enable-dvd-video-playback to get you started anyway ;)06:04
glebihanrandom_: depends on the the player you use, smplayer has this feature06:04
wasnik_tensorpudding: when i try to install from usb all i get are 4 option, 1. use without installin 2. install ubuntu 3.ceck disk 4. check memory 5. load from hard drive06:04
ZykoticK9random_, disregard my not if you already have playback06:04
Loshkizcat[1]: I'm guessing because of the huge i/o glut when it does the screen dump...06:04
tensorpuddingwasnik_: is this Ubuntu 10.04? and the first option is what you want06:05
random_Zykotic. Never hurts to read a full primer06:05
ZykoticK9random_, i use mythbuntu for my htpc and love it!  i believe it can bookmark, not sure about "last place"06:05
random_Glebihan thank you for the suggestion06:05
zcat[1]Loshki, but I can record a video easily enough... perhaps I should figure out how ti use recordmydesktop and just record a really low framerate video...06:05
wasnik_tensorpudding: yes it is 10,04, and when i use the option, try without installin i get the same error06:05
ZykoticK9!tab > random_06:06
ubotturandom_, please see my private message06:06
tensorpuddingwasnik_: what do you mean?06:06
sobczykis ubuntu planning to backport the new opensourced broadcom drivers?06:06
tensorpuddingwasnik_: it gives the usb error?06:07
ZykoticK9sobczyk, good question actually - that might have a place in the new repository for "new" software - perhaps that's only in 10.10? not sure.06:07
wasnik_tensorpudding:the screen gets stuck on ubuntu and when i press ctrl+alt+del i get the error, couldnt open /dev/sda and 'couldnt enumerate usb on port 2"06:07
tensorpuddingwasnik_: how long did you wait?06:07
wasnik_tensorpudding: before i didnt wait much, but did it again 2 mins back and am still waitn06:08
tensorpuddingwasnik_: your laptop sounds like a real bear of a machine06:08
glebihanwasnik_: in order to maybe get more informations, you should try to boot the live cd in recovery mode too06:08
tensorpuddingwasnik_: there is no reason for it to even attempt to open /dev/sda if it's starting a live environment06:09
random_ZykoticK9: Thank you for the suggestion, i'm off to go try smplayer06:09
glebihantensorpudding, wasnik_ : well it tries to mount hard disks, but it shouldn't freeze the computer if it doesn't get to06:09
tensorpuddingwasnik_: it might work if you disable ACPI or something06:09
Loshkizcat[1]: import doesn't see to freeze my 10.04 system when it runs, maybe it's a hardware difference. I can watch video while I run import06:09
needhelp1for some reason my cpu usage is going crazy, at 99 percent and im just using ftp.06:10
tensorpuddingwasnik_: what model of laptop is this?06:10
ZykoticK9sobczyk, good for broadcom!  i wish more hardware manufactures would follow that lead.  smplayer is just a front end for mplayer - don't know if mplayer has dvd resume, and i use mplayer a lot ;)06:10
wasnik_tensorpudding:it is a compaq presario06:10
glebihanneedhelp1: use "top" to see which process is using the resource06:10
zcat[1]Loshki, perhaps it's compiz?06:10
needhelp1Glebelg, top ?06:11
tensorpuddingwasnik_: which model number is it?06:11
glebihanneedhelp1: yes, type "top" in a terminal06:11
zcat[1]Loshki, you're using compiz?06:11
Loshkizcat[1]: sorry, I don't know enough about compiz to comment. I don't run a desktop as such, just fvwm...06:11
ZykoticK9needhelp1, using "top" and "ps aux" are really handy for identifying processes - which you can then kill.  glebihan06:12
needhelp1nice, thanks Glebelg  and ZykoticK9  ...06:13
needhelp1one sec06:13
tensorpuddingwasnik_: you might try disabling USB in the BIOS06:13
=== gabriel_ is now known as grantgm
wasnik_tensorpudding: I dont have any abling or disabling options in bios06:14
tensorpuddingwasnik_: are you sure? you looked everywhere?06:14
needhelp1so far it looks like plugin-container is using a large amount06:14
ZykoticK9wasnik_, tensorpudding i supported compaq for 4+ years, they're bios's are typically VERY limited06:14
tensorpuddingwasnik_: if not, maybe try doing what you did before with 'quiet splash' and replace it with 'noacpi'06:14
luci_39Hey all, I'm looking for a gui to configure grub. Does ubuntu already have one installed?06:15
glebihanneedhelp1: do you have a web browser opened ?06:15
needhelp1i found it06:15
needhelp1i caught the hidden cpu user06:15
ZykoticK9luci_39, most "GUI" apps for grub configuration are grub1 only - modern Ubuntu uses grub2.  just FYI06:15
needhelp1gwiber opens up for seconds and uses 99 percent of my cpu06:15
luci_39oh ok. So grub2 is installed on the newest ubuntu?06:16
tensorpuddingluci_39: yes06:16
ZykoticK9needhelp1, i've noticed the gwibber service using 100% CPU for short bursts - and should be considered normal...  but it typically isn't for prolonged periods.06:17
LoshkiZykoticK9: are there *any* grub2 configuration apps? I'd like to try one. Grub2 is a bear to configure...06:18
Jordan_ULoshki: What are you trying to configure specifically?06:18
luci_39Well my windows bootloader is corupted. Grub2 is using it to boot windows. So I have no recov disc for windos. Can I get grub2 to bypass windows bootloader?06:18
glebihanLoshki: no, there's no GUI application to configure grub, at least none I know and would do good job06:18
Jordan_Uluci_39: It depends on what way it's "corrupted", but most likely no.06:19
MrPPSis there any way to encrypt the filesystem after the OS has been installed?06:19
LoshkiJordan_U: actually, I gave up on it. I'm afraid. I still boot using grub1 into 10.04....06:19
shaiHi :) why is it, when I ssh to my machine, my .bashrc nor my .bash_aliases get sourced? I always need to manually source .bashrc before using it (which he has included .bash_aliases)...06:19
luci_39Windows bootloader says the file is missing or corrupted06:20
glebihanluci_39: what file ?06:20
ZykoticK9Loshki, honest to god, all i know about grub2 i learned from the !grub2 factoid - and one article about getting the development names "lucid" into the grub list ;)06:20
luci_39ntl.... something I think06:21
Jordan_Uluci_39: Did you delete any partitions recently?06:21
luci_39yes I did, but this was after the msg. So it's something else06:22
LoshkiZykoticK9: I looked through the shell scripts when grub2 first came out, and they are IMHO a mess. I much prefer grub1. I also still prefer gdm1, but on 10.04.06:22
luci_39I tried to use another windows xp disc but it couldn't detect a hardrive06:23
shaiFirst two lines in .bashrc say:06:23
Jordan_ULoshki: You don't need to edit the shell scripts in most cases.06:23
shai# If not running interactively, don't do anything06:23
shai[ -z "$PS1" ] && return06:23
shaiMaybe that's it?06:23
shai$ echo $PS106:23
shaiNot sure ...06:23
wasnik_tensorpudding: I saw the options on this page and i am goin about experimetin https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootParameters06:23
tensorpuddingshai: .bashrc doesn't get loaded by non-interactive shells does it?06:23
ZykoticK9Loshki, i had a hard time accepting grub2 at first but after understanding /etc/default/grub a little better, and the automatic nature of grub2 (with very high personal success rate) - I changed my mind.  Grub2 is pretty cool.06:24
shaitensorpudding, what does that mean?06:24
cibaohi, can anyone assist with a question?06:24
glebihan!ask | cibao06:24
ubottucibao: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)06:24
Jordan_ULoshki: /etc/default/grub is where configuration changes should be made.06:24
cibaohow do I determine if Im running amd64 image or the intel?06:25
Jordan_Ushai: Can you pastebin your .profile?06:25
tensorpuddingshai: i thought that .bashrc only gets loaded if the shell is interactive06:25
glebihanshai: what's your issue exactly and where do those lines come from ?06:25
glebihancibao: lsb_release -a06:26
shaiJordan_U, http://pastebin.com/9bw09udu06:26
shaiGlebelg, My issue is: Hi :) why is it, when I ssh to my machine, my .bashrc nor my .bash_aliases get sourced? I always need to manually source .bashrc before using it (which he has included .bash_aliases)...06:27
ZykoticK9cibao, i don't see it with lsb_release, use "uname -m"06:27
LoshkiJordan_U: ZykoticK9: I guess I'm just old-fashioned. I'm told grub2 is an improvement code-wise. I can't comment on that. But I definitely don't find it an improvement from an admin/user perspective...06:27
shaiglebihan, they come from:  "First two lines in .bashrc say:"06:27
xuekanwhy there is a bot asked me questions and it shows that i am unregged?06:27
cibaoglebihan that only tells me ubuntu 10.4, I was looking for something like amd64... or x86..06:27
Jordan_ULoshki: How so specifically?06:27
glebihanshai: oh sorry didn't see the previous message :)06:28
ZykoticK9cibao, "uname -m"06:28
tensorpuddingcibao: uname -m06:28
shaiglebihan, no worries mate :)06:28
Loshkixuekan: because for some groups, you must first register before you can join...06:28
xuekanoh, I see,thank you.06:29
ZykoticK9tensorpudding, :p beat ya by a fraction of a second (but i said it a few lines above)06:29
glebihanshai: is bash your default shell ?06:29
shaiglebihan, is that shown in passwd as /bin/bash?06:30
glebihanshai: yep06:30
shaiIf yes, then yes.06:30
tensorpuddingif you don't change your shell, that is what it will be06:30
LoshkiJordan_U: I multiboot at lot, 804/104/XP/BSD (or at least I used to, before vmware). I don't recall what I had to do at the time, but it involved editing some of the shell scripts. With respect: they were (are?) a tangled mess and I lost patience with them :-)06:32
Jordan_Ushai: How can you tell that .bashrc isn't being sourced when you login via ssh?06:32
MrPPSwith libcap2-bin, editing the /etc/security/capability.conf, i'm trying to set cap_net_admin to two users06:32
MrPPSdo i do a separate line for each, or both on the same line?06:32
glebihanshai: apparently, ssh doesn't source .bashrc but .bash_profile06:32
glebihanshai: so you may want to call .bashrc from .bash_profile06:33
tensorpuddingmaybe ssh is configured to start a login shell06:33
tensorpuddinglogin shells run .bash_profile06:33
shaiJordan_U, 1. bash_completion won't work until I manually source .bashrc. I have three EXPORTS I have at the end of .bashrc, they don't get exported until I mnaually source .bashrc and .bash_aliases doesn't work, until I manually source .bashrc.06:33
shaihance, .bashrc is not getting sourced.06:33
cibaouname -m=x86_64, do that means I'm running -amd64.iso or -i386.iso?06:34
shaiglebihan, what is the source of that answer?06:34
tensorpuddingcibao: 64-bit06:34
shaitensorpudding, can you tell me what you mean by that?06:34
glebihanshai: what tensorpudding said, ie ssh opens a login shell + http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/linux-newbie/74491-how-automatically-source-bashrc-over-ssh.html06:34
shaiFYI, this is a pretty standard desktop install of Ubuntu 10.0406:35
Jordan_ULoshki: grub legacy's update-grub in debian didn't automatically detect other OSs at all, and you can manually add entries to /etc/grub.d/40_custom if you don't want to use grub2's automatic probing (that file is included verbatum into the grub.cfg, no scripting knowlage needed).06:35

tensorpuddingUnknown: you need to have sudo privs06:36
glebihanshai: to test it, you can put an "echo" command in the .bash_profile06:36
tensorpuddingUnknown: why do you want to move something there?06:36
cibaomy pc has a amd64x2 turion, and I want to make sure I'm using the right image, when I had the 9x version I had the amd image but it did the auto upgrade I think it installed the intel version and I'm tryin to confirm that?06:36
LoshkiJordan_U: good point! Maybe I'll take a look at grub2 again...06:37
ZykoticK9Unknown, the quick answer is "sudo", but it sounds like you're gonna have to learn about ownership and permissions if you're moving files there ;)  good luck man, enjoy Ubuntu.06:37
Unknowntensorpudding: I want a pairing android application to start without me having to open terminal each time06:37
tensorpuddingcibao: if you upgrade using ubuntu's facilities you cannot switch architectures06:37
haro1hi , I downloaded ubuntu-10.04.1-desktop-i386.iso , then wrote it to my usb pendrive using unetbootin , and booted from it. The login screen asks me first for "press login" and then for a user and a password, and none that I try seems to work. What should I do ? I'd like to be able to boot the image like a normal live ubuntu , that offers me the option to install.06:37
tensorpuddingUnknown: try using sudo06:37
shaitensorpudding, worked...06:38
shaiNow it is getting sourced....06:38
shaiwho knew...06:38
Unknowntensorpudding: I put sudo in front of the mv command, and typed in my password, but there was no confirmation and it doesn't appear to be in that folder06:39
ZykoticK9cibao, is uname returns x86_64 then you're using 64bit - which according to the web site is "not recommended for daily use" see bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-website-content/+bug/58594006:39
tensorpuddingUnknown: mv doesn't give confirmation06:39
Unknowntensorpudding: But it is no longer in its original folder, so do I assume it worked?06:39
tensorpuddingUnknown: are you sure that it isn't there?06:39
Jordan_Uharo1: That's a bug (likely X crashing the first auto login). An Ubuntu pendrive made with unetbootin should act exactly like a normal LiveCD. Have you tried booting the USB on another computer? Can you pastebin the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?06:39
tensorpuddingif it didn't mv the file correctly it would have given a write error06:40
tensorpuddingtry ls /lib/modules06:40
tensorpuddingand look for it06:40
tensorpuddingif the filename started with a . then it won't appear unless you use ls -a06:40
Unknowntensorpudding: it just worked, thank you06:41
haro1Jordan_U: I'm not able even to open a tty , since the graphics card garbles the screen when I type ctrl alt f1 , and anyway , no login combination works. I'll try in another computer and tell you my result06:41
glebihanUnknown: by the, I've seen that you were setting up an Android device06:41
glebihanUnknown: I think the instructions on Android's website are out of date06:42
Jordan_Uharo1: A blank password should work.06:42
haro1Jordan_U: with user ?06:42
cibao tensorpudding: I had ubuntu running for over a year and only god know's what I've done, cause I'm not too sure my self06:42
Jordan_Uharo1: "ubuntu"06:42
glebihanUnknown: what did you put in the file ?06:42
haro1Jordan_U: :-)06:42
haro1Jordan_U: I'll try it06:43
Jordan_Uharo1: Though since auto login failed you will likely be brought back to the log in screen when you try to log in manually as well (again, probably X crashing for some reason).06:43
Unknownglebihan: it was a .ko file that lets me use my android phone's camera as my webcam06:43
glebihanUnknown: ok so it's not what I was thinking about06:44
glebihanUnknown: thought you were setting it up for development06:44
cibaoI think somewhere I did a "force install"06:45
Unknownglebihan: No, I'm much too novicey for that, but thanks for inquiring... the past couple days, the IRC has not been too helpful, so I"im glad to have multiple people helping me out this time06:45
tensorpuddingcibao: more to the point, amd64 is not restricted to amd processors, intel's processors use it too06:45
wasnik_tensorpudding:tried all  options but end up with the same error06:46
tensorpuddingwasnik_: there is the possibility that there is a hardware issue06:46
glebihanwasnik_: did you try my suggestion of running live cd in recovery mode ?06:46
cibaoI used to logon to my company's website before the upgrade now is not letting me06:47
cibaoit just says browser is not compatible06:47
wasnik_glebihan: How do i run it in recovery mode. i have an usb and on the usb i have option run ubuntu without install. tensorpuddin told me its the live cd version for usb. but no recovery mode there06:47
tensorpuddingcibao: what do you mean? what browser is it?06:47
glebihanwasnik_: you should have the possibility to edit the options passed to the kernel06:47
glebihanwasnik_: then remove "quiet splash", and put "single"06:48
tensorpuddingcibao: firefox?06:48
tensorpuddingcibao: some websites reject browsers based on the identifications tags it sends in HTTP headers, it is probable that your website blocks firefox06:49
wasnik_glebihan: in using ubuntu without downloading i did remove quiet splash and substituted others for it, will try single and ley u know06:49
tensorpuddingcibao: is firefox included in the supported browsers?06:49
glebihanwasnik_: ok, you may want to try "acpi=off" too if you haven't already06:49
cibao in windows based yes06:50
cibaowhen I used to have the 9x version of linux I used to get in fine but does not let me with 10.406:50
tensorpuddingcibao: if they were matching on browser id strings, then it should work06:51
tensorpuddingcibao: are you using firefox 3.6 or whatever is the newest version?06:51
wasnik_glebihan:tried single as well as acpi=off, both dont work, it just seems that the booting is tryin to open /dev/sda on the hardisk and since the /etc/fstab file itself does not exist nothing constructive happens06:51
tensorpuddingcibao: it might be matching against particular versions or something06:52
glebihanwasnik_: that's weird cause when booting on live cd, an error with mounting the hard disk shouldn't prevent the computer from booting06:52
wasnik_glebhian:its also givin an error "cannot enumerate usb port 2"06:53
wasnik_glebhian: and i am installing from a usb drive06:53
glebihanwasnik_: that shouldn't be a fatal error either06:53
vu1kanis there a simple(hopefully one line cli command) way to test if a port is forwarded properly?06:53
tensorpuddingcibao: does the compatibility table list 3.6 as a version supported?06:54
cibaoI used to get in with version 3.506:55
tensorpuddingcibao: it lists firefox 2 only?06:57
wasnik_glebhian: is there a way to just erase the content of the hard drives and start afresh06:57
cibaoie 6 or later, and firefox 206:57
glebihanvu1kan: "iptables -L" should list the rules06:57
glebihanwasnik_: well, the problem is that you  can't boot on the live cd06:58
tensorpuddingcibao: you might need to do user agent spoofing06:58
glebihanwasnik_: did you check the md5 checksums of the cd ?06:58
wasnik_glebhian: what are md5 checksums06:59
Jordan_Uvu1kan: Can you give more detail about what you're trying to accomplish?06:59
Jordan_U!md5 | wasnik_06:59
ubottuwasnik_: To verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows06:59
glebihanwasnik_: these are hash values that can be used to test whether a cd contains erroes06:59
tensorpuddingcibao: there is an add-on which does user agent spoofing07:00
vu1kanJordan_U: i'm just wanting to make certian i forwarded the port for my bittorent of the 10.04 .iso correctly07:00
cibaoI would have to look into that,07:00
glebihanvu1kan: you mean on a router or on the computer ?07:00
Jordan_Uvu1kan: Most clients have an option to test if a given port is correctly forwarded.07:00
vu1kanglebihan: i was under the impression that you only needed to forward through the router07:01
vu1kanJordan_U: i also do a bit of mussing with the python simplehttpserver, and i'd like to be able to set an alias to double check that port, as well07:01
sweetpivu1kan: if you just want to test if the port is accessible from outside, http://www.grc.com/ use "Shields Up" custom port probe07:01
glebihanvu1kan: usually yes, but could be that you were doing something more complicated07:01
cibaothanks for all your help..07:02
glebihanvu1kan: but in that case forget about the "iptables" command07:03
vu1kanglebihan: yea, it doesn't seem to suit my purpose, but i've used sheildsup before, it just seems  like a roundabout way of checking something that you should be able to set a custom ping(or something similar) for07:04
vu1kansomeone in ##linux was saying theres a method using telnet to check it, but it's be ages since i've use that proto/program07:06
vu1kan*it's been07:06
glebihanvu1kan: yes, that would be way, but you have to try to telnet your computer on ports 6881-6889 from outside your local network07:07
wasnik_glebhian:  I have ubuntu on a usb, i dont think there is an iso file there07:07
Jordan_Uvu1kan: The problem is that you need to have a server initiate a connection to you coming from the internet. You can test by trying to connect using your internet facing ip address from the machine itself but that can lead to false positives and negatives.07:08
glebihanwasnik_: isn't there an option to test the content of the usb key in the startup menu ?07:08
glebihanwasnik_: I know there is for cds but have never tried usb07:09
vu1kanhmm...off to google i go, portforward.com has a nifty utility for m$(ugh), maybe i can wine it07:09
Jordan_Uwasnik_: If you press any key during the first 5 seconds of boot you should get a menu with an integrity check option.07:09
vu1kanthanx much, Jordan_U, glebihan, and sweetpi; at least i've got somewhere to start now07:09
Jordan_Uvu1kan: You're welcome.07:10
glebihanvu1kan: you're welcome07:10
wasnik_jordan_U: dont understand. ur sayin i put the usb drive in and the boot from it and then in 5 second press any key, but then i just get to the option as to how to install the ubuntu07:10
harovaliJordan_U: luckily and thanks to your advice , I was able to login using the ubuntu 10.04 image.07:11
Jordan_Uwasnik_: Did you see a menu like this: http://jordanu.dyndns.org/tmp/Screenshot-3.png ?07:12
harovaliI'd like to proceed to a fresh install, over the old ubuntu here, but I'd like apt-get to install all the packages that are already installed in my system. Is there a general advice for that ?07:13
Jordan_U!clone | harovali07:13
ubottuharovali: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate07:13

ashiswinhey, i know this should go to winehq but they aren't responding. hope u guys can help. I was installing a program with wine and it was installing to C:\Program Files but the files have disappeared and the space also has been used07:15

Jordan_Uharovali: You're welcome.07:16
Blue1ashiswin: cd ~/.wine07:16
ashiswinits not there Blue107:17
harovaliI'd also like not to modify my /dev/sda8 partition , which currently holds /home . How can I instruct the installer not to touch it , but to use it without doing a mkfs on it ?07:17
Blue1ashiswin: cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files07:18
ashiswinits not there07:18
S_p_or_t_oright click and show hidden files?07:18
glebihanharovali: just instruct the installer to mount it in /home, and not to format it (you'll have to use custom partition)07:18
DaveWMhardwalker :  just tell it the mount point is /home,  and make sure its not set to format it07:18
S_p_or_t_osorry, view->show hidden files07:19
Blue1ashiswin: then I don't know....that's where it stores all the files.  try:  wine --version07:19
Jordan_Uharovali: Select manual partitioning, make the mountpoint for /dev/sda8 "/home" and be sure that format is not selected.07:19
harovaliglebihan: DaveWM: Jordan_U: thanks07:19
wasnik_jordan_U: yes i see the screen07:19
DaveWMharovali :  it won't format it without informing you first07:20
glebihanwasnik_: then select "check disk for defects"07:20
Jordan_Uwasnik_: Try the "Check disk for defects" option.07:20
RealOptywitch is a better machine A) dell P4 HT 3ghz or B) AMD Sempron LE-1250 2.2 GHZ07:20

hariomHi, what is the benefit of JeOS Server over Ubuntu server default install?07:26
wasnik_glebhian: yes i did that and i came up with the same errors all  over again07:26
glebihanwasnik_: while doing it or after ?07:26
Jordan_Uglebihan: The check disk for defects uses the linux kernel to do the check, so it's possible he's running into the same problem as a normal boot.07:26
glebihanJordan_U: yes I know, but if he does, it may also suggest that the disk has defects after all07:27
shaiSomething happened to my VNC server (I use VNC to do a remote desktop to my Gnome desktop via SSH) .. it won't accept connections anymore. I tried to do a /etc/init.d/gdm restart ; but that didn't help .. it worked just a half hour ago before I did Logout on my desktop ... what can I do to get this working again?07:27
glebihanJordan_U: the checking utility does not try to mount disks07:27
shaiI have ssh to my remote machine.. and trying to telnet to localhost at port 5900 fails too ...07:28
Blue1shai: the way vnc works, once the connection is terminated, vnc terminates, and must be restarted on the host machine.07:28
Four2zerowhen i run command: sudo /etc/init.d/samba restart i get command not found ?07:28
shaiBlue1, I don't see a VNC service...07:28
Four2zerowhy when samba is installed07:29
shaiBlue1, what would its name be?07:29
ActionParsnipFour2zero: use: sudo service smbd restart07:29
shai/etc/init.d/vboxdrv ?07:29
ShvonderFour2zero: You should use other command07:29
Blue1shai: x11vnc is what I am running here.07:29
wasnik_glebhian: as i am doin it, in order to see what was happenin i deleted quiet splash even while checkin disk07:29
ActionParsnipFour2zero: ubuntu uses upstart now, not init.rd07:30
ShvonderFour2zero: 'sudo service nmbd restart' and 'sudo service smbd restart'07:30
Four2zeroShvonder what other command ?07:30
shaiBlue1, I didn't install it by hand AFAIR07:30
shaiBlue1, I just enabled remote desktop via the Gnome UI07:30
ActionParsnipFour2zero: I gave you the exact command you need07:30
Four2zerooh...wow, where are tutorials...lol07:30
Four2zeroi ran it.07:30
glebihanwasnik_: then if you have any way to do so, I'd suggest trying to get another image and try with it07:30
hariomCan anybody mention benefits of Jeos (Minimal Virtual machine install)?07:30
sweetpishai: your running vino-server07:31
glebihanwasnik_: if this does not work, I have no other idea than a hardware issue07:31
ShvonderFour2zero: Running samba is at least 2 demons: nmbd and smbd07:31
jameswhi all07:31
ActionParsnipFour2zero: use the same syntax but with the services you want to manage, it all tabcompletes nicely07:31
shaisweetpi, probabaly then... how do I get it restarted?07:31
Blue1shai: okay that might work.  I have mine set up, so that you must login via ssh, start x11vnc on the host, and then use remote desktop viewer -- bit of a pain, but quite secure07:31
ShvonderFour2zero: Also you could use: sudo smbcontrol all reload-config07:31
wasnik_glebhian: u mean try another version of ubuntu07:31
jameswmy x crashed or something so i did /etc/init.d/gdm restart, but it gave me a new X session, all my other programs are still running on the old session07:31
rob_phariom: It's a minimal install. That means you can add what you need to it and you don't have to spend time trimming the stuff you don't need.07:31
ActionParsnipjamesw: kill them off or I believe you can foreground them07:32
glebihanwasnik_: no the same version, but by downloading it and putting it on the usb the again07:32
sweetpishai: it should have started when you logged into X07:32
hariomrob_p: ok07:32
jameswanyone know how to foreground programs that "live?" in another (stale) X session?07:32
shaisweetpi, I had logged out though ... and I need it restarted...07:32
niglopYou see that built in command line on the bottom right hand corner of the mint symbol> http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/3700/screenshot32s.png     | Does anybody know how I can get that?07:33
wasnik_glebhian: but if i am gettin the error while booting from installed version on computer as welll as while loadin from usb, then wouldnt it mean that another image i would have same issue07:33
Blue1jamesw: restarting x should kill all user programmes.  however any system programmes will continue to run.07:33
rob_phariom: I have a jeos vm and it works fine but I had to install quite a few things to make it do what I wanted.  A more typical install would have already included most of the things I ended up having to install.07:33
ActionParsnipjamesw: alt-tab not work?07:33
jameswhow do i restart X? i did gdm restart07:33
sweetpishai: then you wont want to use vino, youll need x11vnc like Blue1 said. you need to be logged in for vino to work like that07:33
wasnik_glebhian: also in my bios i ran a test hard disk for defects and my hard disk passed07:33
glebihanwasnik_: well, you did install on the hard drive from the same usb key as you're trying to run from, right ?07:34
Blue1jamesw: sudo service gdm restart07:34
wasnik_glebhian: yes07:34
jameswdo i still do that? now? even after doing init.d gdm restart?07:34
hariomrob_p: I heard that it is suited well when running on VMWare as it is made to run efficient on it07:34
glebihanwasnik_: so if there are defects on the usb key, that would explain issues on both way07:34

TiKniglop: no but if you figure it out id like to know tik808@gmail.com07:34
jameswmy x crashed or something so i did /etc/init.d/gdm restart, but it gave me a new X session, all my other programs are still running on the old session07:34
shaisweetpi, Blue1: but won't x11vnc start a whole other X session and I won't be able to see my current x:0 session?07:34
ActionParsniprob_p: could run lubuntu too07:34
mneptokjamesw: alt + print screen (sysreq) + k07:34
wasnik_glebhian: but i had installed twice from the usb and the ubuntu installed, just since yestedray  i am havin hese problems07:34
jameswthe problem is my programs are in the other session07:34
Blue1shai: remember that when you logout, you terminate vnc. so no it shouldn't07:35
crazyharryso many protections07:35
sweetpishai: correct, but you said you logged out so whats the problem?07:35
ActionParsnipcrazyharry: how do you mean?07:35
rob_phariom: Yes, it's well suited for running under vmware.07:35
glebihanwasnik_: in that case, it strongly suggests a hardware issue, but it might still be worth trying (on another usb key then)07:36
glebihanwasnik_: just in case it's the usb key itself that has a defect07:36
ActionParsnipwasnik_: you can test ram from livecd. Wait for the stickman to show, press space then select memtest07:36
wasnik_actionparsnip: what is stickman, how do i get there07:38
ActionParsnipwasnik_: when you boot the usb you will see it at the bottom of the screen07:39

The second option is to use an SCM, and commit changes every days after having rsync the data.07:48

Logicwaxso I just finally upgraded to Lucid.  and dmraid doesn't seem to like my raid5 fakeraid (on siliconimage card).   however, i have an older HDD laying around with jaunty on it and when i boot from that install dmraid detects my raid5 just fine08:48
avelaincan you tell me what's the default gui editor of ubuntu08:48
GneaI tend to steer clear of software raid whenever possible08:49

LogicwaxSwedeMike: im not booting off of the raid08:49
Logicwaxthe raid5 is just storage08:49
Logicwaxlucid doesnt like it.   but when i boot from jaunty it sees the raid5 just fine08:50
SwedeMikeLogicwax: I've been using raid5 (and raid6) with sw-raid for quite some time, it works generally well.08:50
Logicwaxin lucid, i get "sil: wrong # of devices in raid set"08:50
Logicwax[3/0] for all the drives08:50
Logicwaxi dont get it08:50
Logicwaxis there a way i can use the older dmraid from jaunty?08:50
Logicwaxbecause like i said, Jaunty works just fine.  its only Lucid that has a screwed up dmraid08:51
SwedeMikedmraid? ew. I use mdadm.08:51
Logicwaxi use mdadm for another raid.  but for my fakeraid i need dmraid08:51
SwedeMikeno idea then, I stay clear of dmraid.08:52

opehi, last I installed Win7 on my brand new Intel SDD Postville. Win7 does boot fast. After than I installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 with Grub2 (1.98). Linux boost fast, but Win7 does require a multiple time as before. Before install all, the partitons are align with gparted 0.6.2 with 1 MiB alignment. sda1 -> win7, sda2 -> ubuntu, sda5 -> linux swap. Anyway, ayn ideas what happens here to win7 ??

younderHello I accidentally swapped two arguments when doing a dump of my home directory. Thus destroying my home directory partion. Well I downloaded the entire previous backup from the external disk. Logged in as root (sudo is rubbish here. The point being that /root is not under /home) Then I restored.

bobawhat could be the case, i tried " which ros-cturtle-base" and gives no output09:52
tensorpuddingboba: how did you install it? where did you install it09:53

Sankym/d/y or anything that uses month names confuses me :|10:07
tensorpuddingboba: try running that in the shell, and then try running the 'which rosed' again10:08
Sankyy-m-d is simple, easy to sort and should be the standard10:08
tensorpuddingboba: wait, my bad, rosed isn't by default10:08
sunsonSanky: date +%Y-%m-%d should give that. otherwise date prints a standard string.10:08

bobatensorpudding: roscore starts, and the next two commands should i type in a different terminal, because on the same it does not run the turtle sim10:17

abhijitsilv3r_m00n, its chromium bug. use arora or firefox or opera11:13
michal__thank you thank you thank you!!!11:13
highlander84jrib, I just need to know which one to have it build so i can install it. useing sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run --listpkg i see no Lucid listed (10.04) so which do I tell it to use.11:14
silv3r_m00nabhijit: arora ?11:14
jribhighlander84: why are you not just using System -> Administration -> Hardware Drivers?  Is it not available there?11:14
silv3r_m00nabhijit: but the same google chrome on ubuntu 10.04 does display hindi fonts11:14
highlander84jrib, Nothing comes up there. thats why im doing it this way.11:14
abhijitsilv3r_m00n, it displays the font but they are crashed. scatter. not readable. better use another browser11:15
abhijitsilv3r_m00n, arora is one of the browser11:15
jribhighlander84: did you read documentation on what --buildpkg does?11:15

michal__hi. after reseting gnome panel i'm getting: "npme-panel: no process found". why?11:18

highlander84jrib, so the guild im useing and what else?11:18
silv3r_m00nabhijit: actually chrome is fast , firefox is very slow11:18
erUSULd3vic3: plan9? i guess this is too out of place here... maybe someone in #ubuntu-server have tried it11:19
jribhighlander84: the official documentation from ati and the help output from the binary you are running if there is any11:19
abhijitsilv3r_m00n, yah right. thats why i use arora and/or opera for devangari purpose and all other purpose - chromium11:19
silv3r_m00nabhijit: I installed arora , let me use it11:19
abhijitsilv3r_m00n, hmm11:19
jribhighlander84: and might as well throw in what you are running and the full output on a pastebin too11:19

highlander84jrib: im just gonna run it with the latest the driver has sudo sh ./ati-driver-installer-9-3-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/jaunty and see what happenes.11:24
jribhighlander84: aren't you running lucid?11:24
tensorpuddingporting a project like that to a different graphics toolkit is a ton of effort11:24
Katsumi32highlander84, do you have ubuntu 10.04 or 9.10?11:24
highlander84jrib, yep thats my problem the driver only goes to jaunty...11:24
albech_what would the CIDR be for two IP addresses next to eachother?11:24
jribhighlander84: oh I see your card isn't supported by the this 10.4 driver on the page?11:25
albech_so if it wanted to target both and
highlander84jrib, card is OS is not. from what I gather.11:25
michal__could anybody help,try to enable task bar,after reseting to default i'm getting a message fter reseting gnome panel i'm getting: "npme-panel: no process found". why?11:25
albech_would do it?11:26
highlander84jrib, it built the packages for jaunty so now i just need to issue the command, sudo dpkg -i *.deb11:26
Katsumi32highlander84, if you have ubuntu 9.10 your card will should work with catalyst from amd if you have 10.04 your card is to old to work so u have to use open source driver the one already installed in your ubuntu11:27
Katsumi32and not everything will work perfect11:27
zambai've set up apache as a proxy for an internal web site.. the problem is that i externally use a dir name to access the internal web page that is running on the root of the server.. how can i "rewrite" the hrefs in the web page so that it refers to the correct path internally?11:27

highlander84jrib, I need to leave for a bit I will returne in 20-30mins..... The open source drivers did nothing for me. thats why im going to this.....11:28

jribmichal__: does it really say "npme-panel"?11:30
jribwell there's that attitude... :P11:30
michal__yes. copied and pasted it11:31
highlander84jrib, Thats what I was gonna do, make it or break it. So if im not back for a while you know why. Thanks for the help!!!!11:31
michal__sorry G is missing11:31
michal__jrib: gnpme-panel11:32
jribmichal__: really?11:32

jribmichal__: the panel that contains your menu, window list, notification area, etc11:40
erUSULharovali: check the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file. maybe there is some error11:40
michal__No. after installing updates it is gone.11:40
jribmichal__: what updates?11:40
jrib!who | michal__11:40
ubottumichal__: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)11:40
michal__jrib: automatic updates from ubuntu from update manager11:41
jribmichal__: did you restart since the updates?11:42
michal__jrib: yes11:42
jribmichal__: and now when you login, you have no panel, correct?11:42

live-cdjatt: unfortunately evolution doesn't work! ... outlook express uses "dbx"-files ... unless you know of a free converter?11:48
michal__jrib&iceroot: after clicking on file in terminal and choose new, i got it back on.11:48
erUSULharovali: that's for 85 refresh rate you can choose another one... rerun cvt with the settings you need11:48
michal__jrib: should i go with killall option as well?11:49
jribmichal__: no.  But if you just typed "gnome-panel" in your terminal and hit enter, you probably want to hit ctrl-z, followed by "bg; disown" so you can close the terminal and keep gnome-panel alive11:50
harovalierUSUL: it says 'xrandr: cannot find output "VGA" ' when i run 'xrandr --addmode VGA 1024x768'11:50

live-cdjatt: :) wanted to show you this website too ... found that in the mean-time too :)11:52
live-cdand jatt ? ...  i imported the messages but i can't see them  :(11:52
live-cdit still has all standard-folders in it ... but not my imported ones11:52
jattI don't know man I have never imported data with outlook express I thought initially that you were referring to outlook for which evolution works11:53
harovalierUSUL: however, now it lists the mode , since i run 'xrandr --newmode "1024x768_85.00"   94.50  1024 1096 1200 1376  768 771 775 809 -hsync +vsync' and it didn't complain11:53

progre55I'm installing ubuntu from a usb drive, but it cannot find my hd to partition..11:53
live-cdjatt: :) ... it's ok ... i'm just trying out a few things ... so don't worry11:53
jattdid you already try all things in that thread? like kmail?11:54
live-cdyep ... i tried kmail11:54
karmeljrib, I am trying to have software sound mixing on Ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10 -  with pulseaudio. My sound card doesn't support hardware mixing. I have tried to copy .pulse and .pulse-cookie from live-cd (where mixing works) but it didn't worked for me11:54
live-cdbut i dunno why kmail doesn't display the messages jatt11:54
jribkarmel: you shouldn't have to do anything, especially if it worked on the live cd11:55
live-cdimport was successfully according to kmail ... but messages don't show up11:55
jattstrange no idea dude maybe just try a virtual machine (VirtuaBox) and just run Outlook Express from the VM11:57
harovalierUSUL: changing 'VGA' with 'default' makes ' xrandr --addmode VGA 1024x768_85.00' work. But when I run 'xrandr --output default --mode 1024x768_85.00' I get  'xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed'11:57
karmeljrib, I know, but I have this issue from 9.04 - I can have only one source of sound, after upgrading to 10.10 it works on clean 10.10 livecd but doesn't on 10.04 upgraded to 10.10.  I don't think that clean installation would solve the problem11:57
jribkarmel: create a new user, does it work for him?11:58
live-cdjatt: :| ... will need some help to do this too ... but not now ... i want to try out a little more11:58
jribkarmel: and if you're on 10.10, you need to ask in #ubuntu+111:58
karmeljrib, now I am on on 10.0411:58
karmelon new user there is something strange, because none of sound preferences dialog works (mixer, sound preferences etc) but sounds a mixed but I can't control volume12:00
karmelI think that works on alsa on new user12:00
ericblairI bought a dell inspiron 1525 with ubuntu installed about 2 years ago (fine but with some hardware problems - overheating etc) .. ok eventually no OS problems just hardware.  I have just upgraded to a dell 15R which I also ordered from dell -- they don't supply ubuntu so I got one with windows on it .... obliterated windows - I will get a refund.  I find that the new dell 15R is completely unuseable with ubuntu for the follo12:02
jribkarmel: well check for sure if he's using pulse or not12:02
ericblairie. look at the forum post maybe posit solution12:02
piyushmishrahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YujRncgaMN4&feature=player_embedded  I felt that you are more likely to know where a security bug lies when you know the source and the primary reason most cracking is done by reverse engineering is because the source wasnt available in the first place... am I wrong?12:03
karmeljrib, as I said - he works on ALSA12:05
karmelhave checked a moment before12:05
jribkarmel: well that's certainly not default behavior right?  So why is he using alsa and not pulse?12:05
karmelHmm, its a good question - will check it12:07
karmelthanks for your advice12:07
andrewfreebasically apt-get broke my box and I'm goign to have to do a clean install to fix it. Is there a command to put the box back to "factory settings" like remove everything it didnt come with or do I have to do a clean install12:10

Stefanos90pokerstars is working on ubuntu :)12:15
bazhangandrewfree, zoneminder installed from repos? or some outside 3rd party source12:15
jribandrewfree: ok.  So why don't you just purge zoneminder and install it again?12:15

matteo1990 Hi all, i have installed ubuntu on my pc with live cd and all worked fine. When i try to boot i get blanck screen (no signal on the tv). What can i do? I have removed the option quite and splash and i can see the loading message, the last one that i see is "begin running /scripts/init-bottom ... Done." What can i do?12:22
andrewfreejrib: either way didnt fix it http://pastebin.com/nHxVtbaJ12:22
jribandrewfree: so it's installed, what's the issue?12:22
andrewfreeWell for example when I purged mysql all the DB stuff is gone, when I installed zm for the first time it had me setup all this crap it if was working http://andrewfree.com:9876/zm would load.12:23
jribandrewfree: did you purge zoneminder and install it again yet?12:23

jribandrewfree: ok12:24
andrewfreeI might change to debian12:24
jribandrewfree: whatever you want.  Both use apt-get and apt-get tells you it will remove packages and asks for confirmation before doing it12:25
andrewfreeor some other distro, idk why apt-get would remove zoneminder when I remote ffmpeg they are unrelated12:25
tensorpuddingandrewfree: it might be that when you ran update most recently, it determined that zoneminder was an orphaned dependency?12:27

Dr_Willisciupicri:  its proberly easier to make a upstart  script to start it. see ones in /etc/init/12:34
Dr_Willisciupicri:  sysv is slowly getting phased out. Upstartis the replacement.12:34
ciupicriDr_Willis, bazhang : it's already written (it's ssh); I just want to setup it to start @runlevel 312:35
ciupicriI want something like chkconfig or ntsysv from Red Hat12:35
glebihanjustine777w: if I'm not mistaking, the Dell 720 is actually a Lexmark printer, which is unfortunately probably the most unsupported brand of printers under Linux12:35
justine777wglebihan: yes i understand, but many people have been able to install it, yet I seem to be missing something12:36
Dr_Willisciupicri:  ubuntu dosent use runlevels like redhat does.12:36

michal_i can't enable taskbar, can anyone help?12:36
ciupicriDr_Willis, ok; then in case I needed, how do I do the opposite, i.e. disable a service?12:36
justine777wglebihan: yes, i have read forums with people commenting that it was a success, yet when i try what they tried, I get error messages.12:37
glebihanjustine777w: what error messages and while running what command ?£12:37
Dr_Willisciupicri:  if its ran by Upstart.   you rename the proper /etc/init/whatever.conf file to be 'whatever.DONTRUN' or similer.12:38
Dr_Willisciupicri:  if it still handled by the older sysv method. you can remove the script link from the proper /etc/rc# directory12:38

opehi, last I installed Win7 on my brand new Intel SDD Postville. Win7 does boot fast. After than I installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 with Grub2 (1.98). Linux boost fast, but Win7 does require a multiple time as before. Before install all, the partitons are align with gparted 0.6.2 with 1 MiB alignment. sda1 -> win7, sda2 -> ubuntu, sda5 -> linux swap. Anyway, ayn ideas what happens here to win7 ?? Googling does show that I'm not the first with this problem, 12:39

ubottuKritoslap: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode14:28
jribTheScifi: you're choosing to just drop to a root shell?14:28

guitar-maniackahlb: no i did not, does it turn off power aswell? or just put computer to "sleep"?14:29
jribTasMan: yeah, which means you need some sort of ssh server on the windows box.  You need to ask ##windows if/how that's possible14:29
AnthLeeI dont think it wants x gone though ..14:29
TheScifijrib: not so sure :D but anything where i can just modify my xorg.conf would suffice, booting from live cd is ofcourse one option..14:29

Nevstahhi guys, for months i have been running my pc on a static address no problem, i then modified /etc/network/interfaces to use dhcp for a day, then reverted back to the same static settings. this works for a while then the pc auto switches back to dhcp. any ideas? the interfaces file remains set to 'static'14:29
jribTheScifi: you should be able to choose recovery mode, and then when it gives you a list of options, choose "root shell"14:30
kahlbguitar-maniac: this should power-off the machine. the advantage of this way is that you definately do this with root-privileges14:30
Dr_WillisI justuse the 'text' option on my normal ussage. so i can get to console and do what i need.. if i want X . i 'startx' :)14:30
TheScifijrib: aah.. i just dont get to boot that far aparrently :(14:30
guitar-maniacok, what about that i cannot connect any USB devices? it just says its not authorized.. i checked my rights and nothing has changed..14:31
jribTheScifi: that's really strange.  There's no X involved anywhere in the process.  chroot from a live cd I guess...14:31
jribTheScifi: you do get to the grub menu and choose "recovery mode", correct?14:31
guitar-maniacAnd also my sounds are gone, rhytmbox seems to be playing the songs, but nothing comes out, last night everything worked14:32
TheScifijrib: yes, and after that i just get some basic output wich is normaly under the splash, and when you normaly would start seeing different modules etc. getting loaded, it just goes blank14:32

Tasmanor.. just chmod -R 111 <foldername> and make ubuntu ask password if it is opened?15:12
bobstroadd1ctus_:  so while you could set up a restricted user environment using rbash, they will try things like ssh or telnet to another system and so on.15:13

TasmanEmanon, btw it isnt just for crypting drives... is it?15:16
Emanonnope Tasman15:16
bobstroadd1ctus_:  normally, you could use sudo to provide specific access, but your core problem is that everybody knows everbody else's passwords. unless you have some way of knowing who is actually issuing commands (authentication), the system can't tell who's who. read up on rbash though, it's probably part of your solution.15:16
Emanondrives partitions folders or individual files15:16
bobstroadd1ctus_:  what do they actually need to do at the shell?15:16
add1ctus_bobstro: they just need to run some software like openoffice, and some other educational software, and they can open firefox in their free time, to have fun on the net...15:17
add1ctus_bobstro: i just need to restrict them from su ... nothing more.. i am preety much sure that they won't go any more than that...15:17

cyclist_2Hello, there! I returned home today to find that my laptop had gone into hibernation; it was a first for me; the thing that concerns me is that I *never* use the laptop on battery power and for that reason it should be fully charged; save a major bug, I guess that there was a power shortage around here and the laptop went into battery power mode automatically [just a guess, though]; but that instead of maintaining the lapto15:45

reutand just wrote the file's path15:50
Dr_Willisreut:  if its chmod +x you just do ./whatever.sh  and it should run15:50
reuti set it to a+x15:50
jribreut: and what was the output?15:51
datacidereut, did you really write "echo "hello world"? echo requires no leading "15:51
reutwait i'll quote it...15:51
reutno, the code should be fine, i tried hello world and "hello world" neither worked. no leading "15:51

DarkStar1what's a good email-client for Ubuntu. I don't need something to download all my hotmail e-mails. Just something that will pop up on my desktop when I get new mail from any of my e-mail addresses15:55
philinuxreut: GUIway. Create a text file on desktop with script. Right click and under permissions tick "allow executing file as programme". Then just double click it.15:56
aetaric!good | DarkStar115:56
ubottuDarkStar1: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.15:56
philinuxDarkStar1: Evolution is integrated well with the notifications, but it has to be running.15:58
DarkStar1aetaric: I know that I'm more asking for ppls opinions. Or if someone already uses such a software, for a recommendation. Apologies for not being clear15:58
AnthLeeisnt there a gnome applet for that?15:58
quiescensi would contend that was a very appropriate question, or are you just taking issue with the question having the word "good"15:58

kernel32I want to 3D Game. I use 3D GameStudio Engine on windows. Now I use linux and I want to create 3D Game. I searching 3d game engine16:11
undecimikar: You will need to remount it as rw. If the filesystem is /dev/sdb1 mounted at /mnt/sdb1, for example, you would run "sudo mount -o remount,rw /mnt/sdb1" or "sudo mount -o remount,rw /dev/sdb1"16:11
ikoniakernel32: ok - that's nothing to do with ubuntu so offtopic for this channel16:11

fladdhi there, does anyone know of a way to tell ubuntu to NOT detect my usb harddrive as hda, because hda is my internal harddrive (where also ubuntu is installed on)?16:13
undecimsjm, ikar: That is a possibility. Most SD cards and some flash drives have hardware RO switched16:13
=== uRock is now known as uRock_away
ikarsjm & undecim , it's a harddrive 1TB16:14
sjmfladd, it won't.  If something is already there, it shouldn't.16:15
airtonixfladd, if you are talking in terms of just /media/hda then you specify a uuid for the new drive instead of a /dev path.16:15
undecimikar: Have you tried remounting it yet?16:15
* sjm thinks: 1TB formatted as FAT???16:15
alexander_can someone tell me how to load the nvidia driver on boot?16:15
ikarundecim, i'm gonne try now16:15
xektrumhello, how can I get the sector size of a drive ?(in ubuntu obviously)16:15
ikoniaalexander_: open the system->administration->hardware drivers and enable the nvidia option, they will then get loaded at boot16:16
ViN86sjm, lol you dont format 1TB drives with FAT? xD16:16
Katsumi32alexander_, if its installed it should be loaded auto16:16
javWhen I got dual-displays, how can I pick which one should be the "primary" one? In other words, which one the gnome-bars should appear on.16:16
fladdsjm, well, it does, I used to automount my sda5 to /windows and sda7 to /media. No, when my usb drive is connected during boot, then the mounting of both fails and if I mount (double clicking) my usb drive then, it is mounted to /windows16:16
ViN86sjm, i love using 1/100th of my drives16:16
Saguarojav, do you have a video card?16:16
fladds/hda/sda btw...16:16
javSaguaro: An integrated intel thingy.16:16
sjmfladd: try using the UUIDs in /etc/fstab16:17
Saguaroyou should be able to set default monitor in System > Preferences > Monitors16:17
jav"Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series"16:17
undecimikar: btw: NTFS is better for large drives like that, and works fine in Ubuntu nowadays16:17
alexander_ikonia: not after boot i want them during boot16:17
javSaguaro: The option "default" does not exist there...16:17
Saguarojav there should be a "Make Default" button16:18
ikarundecim, it worked! :) yes, i'm gonna reformat the drive to NTFS16:18
ikarundecim, thank you so much!16:18
undecimikar: no problem16:18

alexander_Katsumi32: i want it to load during boot not after16:19
javSaguaro: http://www.sics.se/~jav/Screenshot-Monitor%20Preferences.png16:19
sipioralexander_: given that you don't have an X window server running until after boot, i fail to see the problem.16:19

FriarI just insterted a 4GB drive, and it is mounted on /media/89f90252-61d7-4970-b90a-35325bdd7eaf. can I change it so that it is much easier to get to via command line?16:20
Saguarowhat version of ubuntu are you running, jav?16:20
sjmfladd, as undecim said:  sudo blkid /dev/sda1 (or whatever partition)16:20
Katsumi32alexander_, when you boot up your ubuntu and your nvidia driver propper one is installed it will load during the boot16:20
Mr_Blik_Saguaro:  thanks16:20
ChogyDanFriar: try tab16:20
undecimalexander: AFAIK, you can't get KMS with nvidia. The X server needs to load the driver itself16:20
