storm_zenIs there a way to restart sound in lucid when it boots without it working?00:04
toonacidDoes anyone know a command to find files in the console? I need to do something like "find /home -name db/*", where it finds only "db", AND every directory under it. The recurse part under the matched directory is what I can't figure out00:05
storm_zentoonacid, doesn't find automatically recurse?00:05
balding_parrotHi, I need to write a preinst script that stops X (kde) then continues to perform the rest of the tasks. Anyone have a code snippet to point me in the right direction00:05
rbasticrandomOfAmber, Also, right off the bat, you can just open up a Terminal and type 'strings hisprogram' and it'll give you a list of all the unencrypted strings of data in the file.00:06
thechristoonacid: find /home -name "db/*"00:06
toonacidIt does. However I also need it to find all directories under the -name00:06
rbasticrandomOfAmber, If he is trying to just do a simple rm -rf /* command or something like that it will probably show up right away in the list00:06
tjubalubacan you pipe to a variable o do you have to encolse stdout yielding expressions in $(expr)00:06
thechristoonacid: find /home -name "*db/*"00:06
ubottuDO NOT RUN THAT COMMAND That particular command is DANGEROUS and shouldn't be uttered here. REST OF YOU: DANGER, WILL ROBINSON, DANGER! Do not use the command or utter it here thank you!00:07

randomOfAmberrbastic: what list?00:07
=== kai_62656 is now known as kracker[BDC]
toonacidthechris: It's not working for me. Find is returning: "find: warning: Unix filenames usually don't contain slashes (though pathnames do).  That means that '-name `*db/*'' will probably evaluate to false all the time on this system.  You might find the '-wholename' test more useful, or perhaps '-samefile'.  Alternatively, if you are using GNU grep, you could use 'find ... -print0 | grep -FzZ `*db/*''."00:07

rbasticbecause the intent was clear from randomOfAmber's friend's program and what she is asking to protect from00:08
thechristoonacid: oh, there might be a -regex or -iregex that might be what you want00:08
rbasticor he, excuse me00:08
balding_parrotAll the ways of stopping X I have tried also kill the preinst00:08
thechristoonacid: eg -regex ".*db/.*"00:09

cmihaiHi. How do you force a e2fsck of the root filesystem without a livecd? I can't "mount -o remount,ro /" (fs busy) in init 1, and touch /forcefsck && shutdown -F doesn't do the trick.00:10
toonacidthechris: I want to find all the directories, so I did this, and it returns nothing. :/ "find ./svn -type d -regex "*db/*"00:10
thechris toonacid the "."s are significant -- regex's are different than globbing00:11
cmihaiAnd for that matter, what's the correct syntax for e2fsck? -n reports fs errors, but -fv doesn't fix them.00:11
cmihaiEg: "sudo e2fsck -n /dev/mapper/rootvg-home" reports some errors, but they don't get fixed in init 1. And I can't fsck rootvg-root.00:12

DemonicDroidi have a Acer aspire 6930, I want to get the external mic working(audio Jack) then headphones work and external.. jus not the external mic01:07
jribbalding_parrot: the proper way is definitely to just update the existing packages but the easy way is to just find a ppa that already does this (I've seen them around in the past)01:07
syyes manly01:07
manlymatt83How long does the dd usually take you?01:07
manlymatt83it's been running for about 15 minutes now01:07
manlymatt83the USB drive is definitely active, but..01:07
sydepends on the file size01:08
symine usually takes a couple minutes01:08
manlymatt83hmm, so this shoiuld be done by now.01:09
syi forgot01:09
syyou have to unmount the usb drive01:09
sythen dd into it01:09
manlymatt83I'm gonna try bs=1M01:09
manlymatt83just for craps and giggles, it'll speed it up but don't know if it will work01:10
syit was already mounted when you dd'ed?01:10
xMfffunny, this ATi cursor bug seems to hit windows users as well, I should stop baming the xorg ppl :P01:10
storm_zenIs there a way to restart sound in lucid when it boots without it working?01:11
systorm - have you tried sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart01:12
syon the command line01:12
storm_zenI thought I had tried that... I'll give it a shot, though.01:12
systorm - If it works, you may also need to set your sound volumes back to normal.01:14
ryenstorm_zen: Did that work? Otherwise I can offer more assistance.01:14
storm_zensy: No, it didn't work.01:14
ryenstorm_zen: Are you using PulseAudio?01:14
Datzhi, is there a way to selectively update via aptitude?01:14
storm_zensy: By the way, alsa-utils was under /sbin... is that normal for lucid?01:15

I have tried to create a new resolution by using xrandr --new Modeline... and then xrandr --add HDMI2 but when I try to change to the new resolution in Ubuntu's Monitor software then the diskapy goes black. Why is this happening and what can I do to get it working?01:18
storm_zenryen, That didn't work, either.01:18
storm_zenI hear pops when I adjust the volume...01:18
storm_zen.. but no real sound.01:18

storm_zenryen, No idea.  .. like what?01:20
xMfffunkiwan: I just upgrade from 9.04 to 10.04 and experienced something similar, in the end the window manager crashed01:20
ryenstorm_zen: Try a YouTube video, see if that works.01:20
funkiwanxMff: some web searching seems to indicate it may be a problem with my nvidia driver01:20
funkiwanxMff: was going to try a manual upgrade01:20
DatzAcidphase: ah, you didn't list that before, I don't know01:20
DatzAcidphase: I'd assume it's the FSB.. or AMD equivalent01:21
Datzhi, is there a way to selectively update via aptitude?01:21
xMfffunkiwan: yep, for me it was the ati driver, trashed the opengl libs on my system causing window managers and stuff to segfault or bail out with xlib errors01:21
Acidphasethts because I was teling people what dist. , Kernel, and CPU I had01:21
jribDatz: apt-get install package1 package2 ...01:22
Datzjrib: thanks01:22
jribDatz: erm, aptitude  install package1 package2 ... :)01:22
Acidphaseit's fine in Bios and windows =P01:22
Acidphaseso something in "Ubuntu" is making it run @ 800Mhz01:22
DatzAcidphase: look into the sysinfo script I guess01:22
ryenjrib: You are right either way, apt-get or aptitude will work.01:22
storm_zenryen, nope.01:22
xMffAcidphase: might be cpu frequency scaling01:22
DatzAcidphase: the script may be computing it incorrectly01:22
Datzalso could be that, but that is very low01:23
Acidphasecool and quiet isn't enabled01:23
xMffAcidphase: you can add the cpu frequency applet to your taskbar and see whether it lets you increase the freq01:23
AcidphaseDatz, I used 3 different to confirm it01:23
ryenstorm_zen: Hm.. I used to have an issue when I was programming in Java, that if Java used sound, it destroyed my sound until I rebooted. Have you used any Java applications?01:23
xMfflinux usually does not care aboutr cool & quiet bios settings01:23
jribryen: I know, but his question said aptitude specifically so I had to correct it :)01:23
AcidphasexMff , no it will not let me tried that =P01:23

intraderAll, I am trying to update my NVIDIA driver from an x-org PPA. First thing that I worry about is how to back out in case of problems. and next how to do it?01:24

jribintrader: downgrading isn't supported but that's what you would try01:24
Acidphaseanyone ?01:25
sylizard lizard01:25
ryenstorm_zen: I could not tell you what the problem is then. Sorry storm_zen. But it could be an older hardware issue, since you said that you have had this issue for three years.01:25
intraderjrib, I don't follow, sorry01:25
jribintrader: why don't you want to use the drivers you already have?01:25

intraderjrib, I am trying to follow on recommendation by #ubuntu-bugs in relation to bug #63113001:26
storm_zenryen, perhaps.  It if is, though, then it happened with a fairly new Intel board ( at the time ), with the onboard sound, and then with the Turtle Beach soundcard that I bought to get around the 'new unsupported hardware' problem...01:26
storm_zenryen, Thanks for your attention.  I guess I'll just reboot now.01:27
ryenstorm_zen: Sorry again. It actually might be an issue with the actually application also.01:27
ryenstorm_zen: It could be hogging all of the audio, and then crashing your card.01:27
simon_Can someone tell me how to change keyboard layout on ubntu?01:28
storm_zenryen, If that were the case, then it happens before I purposely run anything requiring sound.01:28
jribintrader: you just enable the repo and update manager will do the rest.  If you aren't comfortable with making your system worse, you probably shouldn't be doing this01:28
systorm have you tried  --> lsof | grep pcm     then "kill -9 #Processes"01:28
sythen sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart01:28
ryenstorm_zen: Don't know what to say. Good luck though.01:28

intraderjrib, since I installed 10.04 and its recommended updates, 10.04 is practically unusable . I am afraid that it would make it much worse. There is an update to the NVIDIA driver noted in the x-org ppa. But I don't know how to back out in case of problems01:30

I suspect the problem is that 10.04 uses ath5k instead of madwifi (is madwifi aged?)01:30

ryenstorm_zen: Night, and good luck.01:31
jribintrader: worst case scenario, you just remove the repo, purge the packages it installed and install them back.  But you can also just try to downgrade the packages without the uninstall step01:31
lahwranso how would I install madwifi? I don't have internet on that box, only on the laptop I'm at atm.01:31

psusiMasterofPuppets, reload/sudo apt-get update and retry02:13
tensorpuddingluis_arroyo: have you tried tar --lzma xvf instead?02:14
xMffMasterofPuppets: looks like a broken url in /etc/apt/sources.lust or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/something.conf02:14
syMy teacher just said that open source software is obsolete. -___-02:14
MasterofPuppetsxMff: how would I fix that?02:14
xMffMasterofPuppets: with a text editor02:14
psusierr, ohh, wait... nevermind... yea... it says it can't find the package list, so yea... you have a bad package source configured02:15
gregl<dooglus>  When my pc does that I shut off the monitor ,wait a second then turn it on..That seems to work for me...02:15
MasterofPuppetsxMff: So gksu gedit what?02:15
dooglusgregl: it's a laptop02:15
bodwickMasterofPuppets /etc/apt/sources.list ?02:15
xMffMasterofPuppets: grep -r "do-core" /etc/apt/  will tell you which file02:16
gregldooglus, Oh  well sorry...No idea then,,02:16
n8-bithey guys i need some help, I'm on Ubuntu 10.04 and am trying to install Gnome Shell from source. however a required package gives me this conflict, libwnck-dev: Depends: libwnck22 (= 1:2.30.0-0ubuntu1) but 1:2.30.2-0ubuntu3+10.04~ricotz1 is to be installed. Is there any way to remedy this?02:17
jellowi need to send a message via lib notify over ssh , How could i do it?02:17
ChogyDann8-bit: you should ask the gnome folks02:17
PiranhaPdooglus:  Does switching to a virtual console (Ctrl-Alt-F1) and back again (Ctrl-Alt-F7) help?02:18
MasterofPuppetsxMff, bodwick: when I look in /etc/apt/sources.list, there's no mention of anything to do with do-core02:18
luis_arroyotensorpudding tar --lzma xvf?02:18
n8-bitChogyDan, thank you, their channel is #gnome right?02:18
jellowI can use -X but this displays to my screen not the host ssh server02:18
ChogyDann8-bit: I think they are not on freenode02:18
bodwickMasterofPuppets and you tried system -> administration -> software sources -> other sources ?02:18
dooglusPiranhaP: I tried switching to a vc, but the screen stayed black02:18
dooglusdidn't try switching back02:19
tensorpuddingluis_arroyo: sorry, maybe you can't combine the old-style options with the gnu ones02:19
psusiMasterofPuppets, you probably added it with apt-add-repository, in which case it is in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/02:19
psusiMasterofPuppets, so find the file and delete it02:19
tensorpuddingluis_arroyo: try tar --lzma -xvf file.tar.lzma02:19
PiranhaPdooglus:  probably won't be any better02:19
dooglusPiranhaP: I just tried hibernating while a song was playing.  now resuming to see if I can hear it still02:19
ChogyDann8-bit: why not just use the package?  btw02:19
dooglusPiranhaP: nope - it's silent.  so I don't think it's just a video issue02:20
dan_Can someone help me install a GT330m on 10.04lts 64bit desktop?02:20
dooglusPiranhaP: I can't ssh into it either when it's in that black screen state02:20
n8-bitChogyDan, the package in the ppa is way out of date and doesn't play well with my current window manager, I end up just having to hold the power button xD.02:20
dan_I tried backlisting and deleteing the default nvidia drivers and also the EDID trick and cant get it to work02:20
ChogyDann8-bit: are you on maverick?02:20
luis_arroyo<tensorpudding> it seems to work02:20

Gnurduxdan_, what sort of help?02:23
leowhat are buffer and cache ?02:23
=== denny_ is now known as denny
Gnurduxwhat sort of help do you need?02:24
Gnurduxwhat is your problem?02:24
leofrom the output of the command free,the 1st and 2nd line ?02:24
xMffleo: buffers are areas of ram where linux puts data in when writing or reading from files02:24
luis_arroyo<tensorpudding> Thank You Man02:24
luis_arroyoim very pleased02:24
dan_@gnurdux: installing the card all together. I've tried the backlist and deleteing default drivers and also the export .raw file method in windows02:24
Gnurduxwhat was the original problem?02:24
Gnurduxwhy did you need to start blacklisting stuff and exporting raw files?02:25
xMffleo: cache is used by linux to hold file contents in ram for faster access, it is freed as soon as programs needs this ram02:25
leoxMff can you give some example to prove it02:25
xMffleo: the linux kernel sources ;)02:25
manlymatt83OK, so the alternate CD install failed, but for some reason it had installed enough that I could partially boot.  So I modified /etc/apt/sources.list, am installing ubuntu-desktop, am HOPING that will make it so when I reboot I can access the USB cd creator tool, I'll grab the 10.04 ISO, and install over the USB stick, then re-install. *sigh*02:25
manlymatt83I need a new CDROM - can't wait for it to arrive Thursday02:25
* Gnea wonders why apt-cdrom fails02:26
Gnurduxdan_: what was your original issue?  Like, what didn't work to start with?02:26
leoxMff oh my god that's impossible for now02:26
ChogyDanmanlymatt83: you can also install ubuntu-desktop^02:26
dan_i did a fresh install last night. As of now the resolution is 2048x1536. I cant see the bottom of the screen and also the right from the time over02:26
manlymatt83ChogyDan: I am.  I did "apt-get install ubuntu-desktop"02:27
dan_i researched it and found 2 methods to install the card02:27
manlymatt83but since my CDROM had failed, I needed to switch sources.list to the internet02:27
ChogyDanmanlymatt83: ^  <------02:27
sirecatHey everyone. I looking for the best install options to allow my 10.04 machine to see my windows 7 machines on the network? I also have a couple of macs. Should I just go with smb or are there better options?02:27
manlymatt83oh.  What's ubuntu-desktop with the carrot?02:27
leoxMff maybe ,that's the only right way to understand cache and buffer clearly02:27
Gnurduxdan_, this is on a laptop?02:27
ChogyDanmanlymatt83: it is the task02:28
dan_uluga.ubuntuforums.o rg/showthread.php?p=982091702:28
dan_yes its a laptop02:28
xMffleo: can't think of an easy way to test it. You'll notice it when running "ls" or "find" on a directly with like 10.000 files, the first time takes some time, subsequent accesses are way faster02:28
dan_post number two is the backlist method02:28
manlymatt83ChogyDan: ok.  A little confused :)02:28
dan_forum.notebookreview.co m/5820189-post2517.html02:28
leoxMff yeah i got it02:28
dan_that is the EDID raw export method02:28
Gnurduxyour links are getting corrupted i think02:28
leoxMff that's the buffer02:29
Gnurduxi cant get the first02:29
leoxMff cache02:29
dan_you cant view the first website?02:29
Gnurduxi can't because something is wrong with the link02:29
xMffleo: the cache. buffers are used to aggregate data preio to writing to the target or after reading from it02:29
Gnurduxand not just the space in it02:29
dan_http:// www.uluga.ubuntuforums. org/showthread.php?p=982091702:30

manlymatt83Question - I'nm installing 10.04 right now - Should I install 10.04 again (for real) on the USB disk, or go right for 10.10?  Will 10.10 be upgradeable from 10.04?02:30
Gnurduxgot it, thanks02:30
manlymatt83Or since 10.04 is LTS it won't be?02:30
dan_thank you02:30
leoxMff but how can i different them ? which still puzzled me02:30
GneaI've tried following https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptCdrom but it doesn't work, I can't get the system to see it when I apt-get update, why not?02:30
GneaI'm using a USB stick in place of a cdrom with an Ubuntu image on it02:31
xMffleo: from userspace? thats hard. it's the kernels business to handle that, you usually do not need to worry about it02:31
dan_I have the latest 64 bit supported nvidia driver and also the raw file already ready to go... just cant get either method to work correctly02:31
Gnurduxso the only problem atm is the messed up resolution?02:31
dan_and the speakers not working02:31
dan_other than that the install was the best ive ever had with ubuntu02:32
leoxMff maybe you can give me some advice to help understand them , web info or some book02:32
dan_wireless, bluetooth, blu-ray, mem reader all work great so far02:32
leoxMff i'll check it by myself02:32
ChogyDanGnea: what are you trying to do?02:32
GneaChogyDan: finish installing a system02:33
leoxMff about this point ,i find myself a beginner02:33
Gneaneed to get wireless working on it. in order to do that, I need to install gcc and whatnot. can't do it without doing it off the usb drive.02:33
ChogyDanGnea: did the install get interrupted or something?02:33
manlymatt83dan_: what version?02:33
Gnurduxdan_, have you tried manually setting the resolution?02:33
dan_64 bit lts02:34
Gnurduxalso, is the nvidia driver running atm?02:34
Gnurduxlike, can you pastebin glxinfo>02:34
dan_and yes ive done the res manually and it fixes the res but i still cant see half the screen02:34
GneaChogyDan: no, I'm stuck with wireless and the wireless card has a driver that's not in the repositories. I can get it transferred over just fine, I just can't compile it.02:34
dan_@gnurdux: I have no idea02:34
GneaChogyDan: I could compile it if I could get apt-cdrom to work, but it doesn't work.02:34
Gnurduxdan_, type glxinfo in a terminal, and paste the results to http://pastebin.org/02:34
Gnurduxthat will give us a link, which you can type in this channel02:35
ChogyDanGnea: what do you want apt-cdrom to do?  transfer over some packages?02:35
llvllonkHi, I have a printer hooked into a netgear PS101 connected thru the network... I cannot seem to connect to it using the command line "lpadmin" ...it states "Unable to connect to server: connection refused."02:35
dan_downloading now02:35
leoxMff . it is so hard task for me to explore the kernel source code, i tried but failed ,just wait to try agian later02:36
Gnurduxdan_, downloading?02:36
GneaChogyDan: perhaps you don't know how to read what I'm saying, I'm being as blunt as I can here. It's extremely simple, there's no way to mis-interpret it: I have a cdrom image on a usb device, I installed the system using said usb jumpdrive. the usb jumpdrive is effectively a cdrom, according to the system. I can mount it to /cdrom or /media/cdrom, but apt-cdrom won't pick it up and use it in /etc/apt/sources.list02:36
xMffleo: google for linux memory management, linux buffer cache etc., there's plenty of material02:37
GneaChogyDan: sorry if I seem curt, I'm very frustrated at this point.02:37

manlymatt83coz_: I figure since I have to do a clean install tonight (my drive is busted, I'm talking to you right now from a CLI only install), I'm wondering if I should do 10.10 now instead of doing 10.04 now and then 10.10 in a few weeks02:42
coz_manlymatt83,  oh I see... well  that is another options of course :)  yeah you can do that ... still .. i would say to clean install after release....<< however that is my opinion :)02:43
GneaChogyDan: that's kind of where it's headed, but not quite - it wouldn't matter if I put those files on a cd or usb at this point, since it can't even read it in the first place02:43

coz_manlymatt83,  that is what I do ...may people dont do that  so  it is up to you02:44
ChogyDanGnea: you don't need apt to install debs, you can just install directly with dpkg, or the graphical thing.  The only challenge there is to specify the exact path.  Even with the live cd, the packages are buried in the directory structure somewhere02:44

NOMADICUSI tried starting Nautilus from termainal as root and change the ownership that way, but it dosen't stick.02:47

primedeathAnyone know a program that allows me to change where a USB keyboard inputs to?02:50
xbonesxcan anyone recommend a good back utility?02:50
ubottuThere are many ways to back your system up. Here's a few: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DuplicityBackupHowto , https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HomeUserBackup , https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MondoMindi - See also !sbackup and !cloning02:51
Dr_Willisxbonesx:  depends on what and how you want to back things up02:51
AcidphaseI'm using "sysinfo" the application and the CPU frequency Monitor applet for the panel02:51
flan_susexbonesx: What type of backing up?02:51
xbonesxpreferably to iso of full system backup02:51
Acidphasein which the monitor is telling me that scaling is not supported02:51
GneaChogyDan: making some sort of progress...02:52
flan_susexbonesx: Something to make "snapshots" of your files?02:52
scott_inoNOMADICUS, what about usnig chmod?02:52
Dr_Willisxbonesx:  mondo/mindi works that way.02:52
manlymatt83Wow, I'm quite impressed with Lucid.02:52
primedeathNo one?02:52
flan_susexbonesx: If you want a LiveCD, I'd recommend Clonezilla. It's all in command-line / ncurses though.02:52
flan_susexbonesx: But there's also a package you can install called partimage, which will do the same thing.02:52
flan_susexbonesx: I recommend the LiveCD route, since you don't want to be using the filesystem / partition you are making an image of.02:53
NOMADICUSscott_ino: Are you able to give me an example, I am not too experienced with chmod?02:53
manlymatt83So I guess one final question - is anyone here running 10.10 and really happy about something they have in 10.10 that they didn't have in 10.04?  I think I'm going to go ahead with the 10.04 install, but want to make sure I'm not missing anything major in 10.1002:53
shcherbakspeed - 10.10 is faster02:54
primedeathAnyone know a program that allows me to change where a USB keyboard (or anything for that matter02:54
primedeathinputs to.02:54
Dr_Willismanlymatt83:  i havent noticed any MUST have features yet...02:54
scott_inoNOMADICUS, chmod deals with with file permissions, however, I don't know how youd actuall speficy the actual user.. but sure it can be done02:54
scott_inooh nice.. NOMADICUS apparently it can be done02:55
xbonesxflan_suse: all i can find is a package for the documentation for partimage...???02:55
NOMADICUSxbonesx: I am looking at man chmod right now.02:55
scott_inoNOMADICUS, check the wiki it gives good examples too ;)02:55
Guest59613manlymatt83: id you don't mind minor bugs. I'd go with 10.10. I'm installing 10.10 over 10.04 right as I speak.02:55
manlymatt83Dr_Willis: OK, thanks :) 10.04 seems a LOT faster on my old T42 than 9.04.... so I figured perhaps 10.10 would be even faster.02:55
flan_susexbonesx: Which version of Ubuntu?02:56
xbonesxflan_suse: 10.0402:56
manlymatt83Is there a site somewhere that lists the main features of 10.10 and how they differ from 10.04?02:56

Guest59613I have 353 GB to install Ubuntu 10.10 on. How much should I allocate to swap space? Is 5 GB enough?02:56

xbonesxto me*02:56
manlymatt83I'm actually trying to make the start up disk using the start up disk util and it keeps saying "Failed to install bootloader"02:57
NOMADICUSscott_ino: xbonesx: that message was for scott.02:57
flan_susexbonesx: Hm, it should be there. One second.02:57
alzieGuest59613: usually swap space is slightly more than your RAM02:58
scott_inoNOMADICUS, you need to use chown sorry, not chmod.. although you might have to do both actually if you aid their owner was root and the permissions got changed02:58
Dr_WillisGuest59613:  and your ram is how much?02:58
xbonesxflan_suse: k thanks02:58
manlymatt83Is there another method of creating a USB Ubuntu install other than using the start up creator?  Mine's just saying it can't install it.02:59
KipMacyi use unetbootin02:59
KipMacyare you in windows or ubuntu ?02:59
Dr_Willismanlymatt83:  the pendrivelinux web site has several tools and scripts and other things to do it.. or use unetbootin, or other related tools02:59
Guest59613Dr_Willis: 1.75 GB.  Is the higher amount of swap space the better? Is it okay to have 4 GB swap space?02:59
Dr_Willismanlymatt83:  odd that the Ubuntu tool isent working.02:59
Guest59613I have 1.75 GB RAM03:00
primedeathAnyone know a program that allows me to change where a USB keyboard inputs to?03:00
Dr_WillisGuest59613:  4gb may be overkill if its never used. but it wont hurt.03:00
Dr_Willisprimedeath:  input from where to where exactly?03:00
manlymatt83Dr_Willis: it's letting me "erase it", and then I see it mounts it on the desktop and says "4.1 GB File system", but when I click make disk, it just says it can't03:00
primedeathDr_Willis, I have a USB Keyboard that I want to input into a specific program. Open Office Word.03:00
Dr_Willismanlymatt83:  you need to tell it to install to (for example) /dev/sdd1  not /dev/sdd i noticed. Its easy to get confused in how the dialog works03:00
primedeathThen I want my laptop keyboard to input into the active window.03:00
DatzIs apt-get going to be replaced with aptitude eventually?03:00
flan_susexbonesx: apt-get update03:01
primedeathDr_Willis, is this possible?03:01
Dr_Willisprimedeath:  you want 2 keyboards to be inputing to 2 different windows  you mean?03:01
flan_susexbonesx: Sorry, actually: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-cache search partimage03:01
Guest59613Dr_Willis: So with 4 GB Im plenty safe then right? How much swap space does Ubuntu give by defualt?03:01
primedeathDr_Willis, is that possible?03:01

trusoli got netbook remix running on a hp mini... runs great! videos and media runs much better than win703:02
xbonesxflan_suse: whats the && mean in the code?03:02
Dr_Willisprimedeath:  not that ive ever seen. You can set up 2 X displays and have one keyboard for each.. but thats a bit complex also03:02
flan_susexbonesx: It means to start the next command after the first one finishes.03:02
primedeathDamn. It's for note taking. I want him to input into an inactive window.03:02
xbonesxok kool that will come in handy03:02
primedeathWhile I use the active window.03:02

jon_high9000I am running a compaq presario pc which has currently karmic on it at the moment. i would like to upgrade to lucid but running into problems doing it. can anyone help?03:29
Ubuntucan you tell me how download the version of ubuntu laster03:29
flan_susexbonesx: You can technically run 32-bit apps under 64-bit, but I still would go the route of Clonezille, since you don't want to touch your current/active partition while it is in use.03:29
guccipilotIt says since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to n upstart job you may also use the start(8) utility03:29
manlymatt83Does unetbootin do anything differently than the start up disk creator inside Lucid?  I was able to get unetbootin to make me a 10.04 bootable USB drive but couldn't get the start up util to work.  Will the install be identical?  Will there be anything different because I used unetbootin?03:29
SteristUSB booting is suicide by time03:30
xbonesxscott_ino: it would be kool if i could run a live cd that was already set up to my likings, would this clonezilla let me do that?03:30

scott_inoxbonesx, if you do the install on something like a usb thumb drive you can do exactly that because it can write all your settings03:32
mIRCafter whati i have to do sterist?03:32
Steristput the cursor in the top-right box and type in whatever you desire03:32
Steristmanlymatt83 have you adjusted your PC's BIOs to look for a CD at boot?03:33
xbonesxscott_ino and flan_suse: is there a way to set your system up the way you like it, then turn it into a iso that could be burnt to disc and used as a live cd?03:33
manlymatt83Sterist: Yes.  My CDROM is broken.  Caputt.  Don't have one.  Ordered one, but it isn't here yet.03:33
mIRCsterist it is able for instal softwares in tar.gz?03:34
manlymatt83But still, even when I extract 10.04 live to a USB key drive, it won't work.  The install craps out.03:34
manlymatt83But when I use the alternate CD, it works fine03:34
manlymatt83but the alternate CD doesn't let me install from the net, so I'm wondering if the net install is just as simple as the alternate CD (the text based installer, etc.)03:34
manlymatt83I guess my question is this: what's the difference between the alternate CD and the netinstall CD?03:34
Steristmirc i've been having trouble with that install method myself03:35

hajmolaanyone here have any idea why Opera has weird kerning (letter spacings) on most websites?03:35
Steristmanlymatt83 since your CD drive is out, change the PC bios to look in this order #1 CD (for when you get the new one), #2 USB, and #3 internal HDD, then copy the ISO to a usb stick03:36
Steristmanlymatt83 the difference is alternate uses a different type of installer (usually for low spec computers) to do the main install. net install downloads minimal core files and gets the rest when you update03:37

AbhiJitxbonesx, you cant do that. you must need a .iso to do that04:05

manbullphoenixI've got about half a clue how to build from source05:01
bangfoombp: so, are you doing some kind of ubuntu based stripped down build? the standard module does not work?05:01
unknownbangfoo, guess I`ll not find solution even here... thanks for your comments anyway05:01
stevecoh1bangfoo - stevecoh1 back.  sudo update-grub did not work.05:01

advorakhowdy!  I just ran 'apt-get install php5' and a2enmod'd php5, and uncommented the lines in php5.conf between the <ifmodule>'s to enable php in the userdir of public_html, and restarted apache .. but my apache still feeds my web browser .php files as html files (with the raw source) .. what might I be missing? :-)05:02
manbullphoenixcause IIRC that's just ubuntu with a different window manager, the underlying system is the same05:02
advorakI've gotten this working in the past ... :-)05:02
bangfoostevecoh: sorry, i was pretty sure that grub just didnt know how to read the disk05:02
Datzwilcal_: yes, it would look that way.05:02
wilcal_Datz, looks like 2.5.11 is from March 2005. oof05:02
well_laid_lawn!details | jerry_05:02
ubottujerry_: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."05:02
stevecoh1It's all really weird.  Clonezilla appears to have perfectly cloned things - the grub menu comes up - but the image will not load.  It just dies with an error message.05:03
Datzwilcal_: yea, you are on 10.10 now?05:03

bangfoostevecoh: can you get the grub command line interface?05:04
stevecoh1Ironically - I couldn't get sudo update-grub to work from the cdrom because I couldn't mount the disk.  update-grup needs to see a boot partition.  I could mount /boot but not /05:04

bangfoostevecoh1, when grub comes up, does it have any options?05:05
wilcal_Datz: well, I don't have too much to lose.05:05
wilcal_Datz: I'm gonna give it a shot05:05
Datzwilcal_: I guess not05:05

ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with  superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli ) . Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For  graphical applications see !gksu (Gnome, XFCE), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with  sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo05:57

bullgard4quiescens: And my question is: "What is its filename?" There are 64 files in my uswsusp-0.8.06:52
quiescensbullgard4: it may not be named s2disk.c but you can't exactly rely on that either way because a lot of packages will have multiple source files to make any given binary, you can have a look at the makefiles to see which files make which binaries06:52
ActionParsnipleandroal: remove the kerne(s) you don't want. You will gain about 120mb per kernel in disk space06:52
owner__do I need the -v switch in the move statement?06:52

Flannelcoafcv: Do a "refresh" and then "mark all upgrades", yes.07:08
Flannelcoafcv: If nothing is marked after that, then you're up to date.07:08
HowDoIAhh, that method is different from right clicking the time/date on the panel07:08
coafcvFlannel: I did and nothing is marked, but how can I be up to date, if the last update gave me like a dozen errors.07:08
coafcvFlannel: I do not want to have a gaping security hole in my system.07:08
quiescenshowdoi: its mostly because the time/date panel thingy is user level rather than system level07:08
FunkyDudeFlannel, which ftp client are you talking about? I think it's something built into the wordpress code,  that it's using ftp to install plugins and such07:09
HowDoISo why isn't automatic time  update done by default?07:09
Flannelcoafcv: Go to a terminal, and run these commands, and pastebin the output (paste.ubuntu.com): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade07:09
quiescenshowdoi: I don't know for sure, i know it used to be in the past at some point so I'm guessing some people didn't like it or something07:09
ActionParsnipHowDoI: I guess it'd freak users if ntp started going mental and setting the time to something weird07:09
ActionParsnipI guess07:10
HowDoII was actually rather upset that my computer was off by 3 minutes after 30 days of uptime.  I expect more from the Ubuntu OS.  Not that complaining about it here helps.  Thanks!07:10

lotus-bladeI am trying to see if it sees my raid drives07:11
ActionParsniplotus-blade: sudo fdisk -l07:11
FlannelFunkyDude: most FTP clients also speak SFTP.  If you're going through wordpress somehow (isn't that serverside?) then it might not work07:11
ActionParsniplotus-blade: or: sudo lshw -C drive; sudo lshw -C disk07:11
lotus-bladethat will display the /dev/sda1 and so forth?07:11
kulas_27how do we see all the devices installed?07:12
ActionParsniplotus-blade: the fdisk command will07:12
FunkyDudeya, wordpress is server-side (running on my machine locally), and there's an interface that lets you browse/install plugins, it then downloads and installs them, but requires ftp credentials07:12
ActionParsniplotus-blade: if you want to see the physical devices then the lshw will show that07:12
kulas_27how do we see all the devices installed on your system?07:13

yaaarst__: this has been maddening. the system seems so simple: intel h55/i7 with 2 sata hard drlves and a sata dvd. i put win7 on the first drive. then 10.04 wouldn't install because for some reason device mapper saw the drives as a raid even though they aren't. so i switched to 10.10. the installer let me go this time....albeit with weird device-mapper device names. bit now grub is clearly busticated09:43

alexn49Hi !09:57
wunjono luck09:57
syerUSUL: In theory, do you believe it would be possible to create a cron job that can ssh into a ubuntu server, backup files, then create a random password with say maybe /dev/random and apply that password. Then send a record of that password back to a local encrypted folder that will store the remotely generated password from that file and can then be pulled again to repeat the process?09:57

FloodBot3ucenik16: Please don't flood, use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste, don't use Enter as punctuation.09:59
syI was thinking of doing that so that every time I log into my server it creates a random password. Hmm, just a thought though.09:59
danceksy, why not use ssh keys?09:59
llutzsywhy don't you use rsync to backup your server?09:59
erUSULwunjo: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Command Line and Rescue Mode10:00
dancekllutz, he didn't say he doesn't10:00
llutzdancek: "sshing into server for backup" sounds different to me10:01
erUSULsy: why would you need that complicated scheme????10:01
SmokeyDhey everyone, I have two processes that don't want to terminate when I sudo kill them. Is there any other way to terminate them?10:01
sy@dancek I am but I mean like... creating an alias such as maybe 'alias login="root@server.com" ' then a follow up command that changes the user password with a generated one that stores a local copy... It was just a thought I had earlier today10:02
SmokeyDexcept for rebooting of course10:02
wunjoI have used Ubuntu for 6 years and never had this stuff happen10:02
yaaarSmokeyD: are you using kill -9 ?10:02
SmokeyDyaaar: yes10:02
wunjo what a major dissapointment10:02
dancekllutz, i thought this was more about some security stuff rather than the backup technique -- i for one use rsync over ssh10:02
yaaarSmokeyD: that's about as much kill as you get without rebooting10:02
SmokeyDyaaar: ok10:03
danceksy, i can't see the point10:03
sydancek: yes it was about security... more so about randomly generated passwords10:03
sylol just a random thought10:03
danceksy, i think you'll be much more secure with ssh keys than pseudorandom passwords10:03
erUSULsy: creating a password from urandom is easy « tr -cd '[:print:]' < /dev/urandom | head -c 10 » not easy is changing the password in the remote side from a script10:03
ectospasmSmokeyD: if you've got zombie processes, you have to kill their parent.  Unfortunately many times that's init (-;10:04
erUSULSmokeyD: are they zombie processes? or stuck in D state?10:04
SmokeyDerUSUL: ps auwx gives me a D in there somewhere. But what does that mean?10:05
yaaarSmokeyD: waiting on a disk10:05
erUSULSmokeyD: it means that the process is un-killable. it got interrupted during an I/O syscall that never returned....10:05
SmokeyDah ok, there is a file that it is trying to open or close and it is waiting for that?10:05
syIs there any encryption stronger than aes-256? Ubuntu only allows up to that correct? I had a conversation with some one earlier about there being a livecd that can crack it(havn't heard about that).10:06
SmokeyDerUSUL: ah ok. Then I get it.10:06

sectorbnjm: it might work in another usb slot ?10:07
njmNope, same thing no matter which usb slot10:08

sidh_geirha: ya i know but which is required10:54
pozicjrib: a new user does not have the problem.10:54
pozicjrib: but that new user doesn't have a .profile file.10:54
geirhasidh_: So you're probably running the gcc command in the wrong directory or something.10:54

jribpozic: umm, it should if you created the user in a standard way :/10:54
vaibhav1sidh_: menu.lst didn't work, grub.cfg worked! I dont know what uou are talking abt. what error??10:54
jribpozic: i.e. most tools will copy /etc/skel/10:54
pozicjrib: I mean not the same file as I have have.10:55
pozicjrib: in my .profile I have . ~/.bashrc at the end.10:55
jribpozic: ok well post both .profile, let's see if we can figure it out10:55
jribpozic: ah, well isn't .bashrc sourced in the default .profile already?10:55
jribpozic: look at lines 11-17 in the default .profile.  Are you sourcing .bashrc two times in yours?10:56
pozicjrib: I don't know, but it is no reason for it to simply throw me back into gdm.10:56
pozicjrib: no.10:56
OinsKrishnandu: oh ok. thank you10:56
jribpozic: can you pastebin your .profile?10:56
KrishnanduOins: :)10:56
pozicjrib: you can assume it only contains . ~/.bashrc10:57
koltrollKrishnandu, I could not delete the gorup, and I cannot delete the user from the group using deluser web web since 'web' is user 'web's primary group :)10:57
pozicjrib: I will comment the rest for testing.10:57
jribpozic: I don't assume things when helping people :/10:57
jribpozic: if you want, delete everything else in the file and see if the problem persists10:57
yaaarok, well i guess since more normal things aren't working i'm going to try my hand at fakeraid with 10.10/win710:57
pozicjrib: yes, I understand you don't assume things, which is why I said that I would comment that stuff, but I have now deleted all of it.10:58

jribpozic: what else is different in your bash setup?10:59
pozicjrib: maybe a .bash_profile.11:00
pozicjrib: let me look11:00
jribpozic: does ~/.xsession-errors give any hints by the way?11:00
pozicjrib: no, no .bash_profile11:00
pozicjrib: YES, it says [[ not found and some stuff regarding bad substitutions.11:01
jribpozic: pastebin?11:01
pozicjrib: /etc/bash_completion contains [[ on line 29, which AFAIK doesn't even exist.11:03

pozicjrib: it appears that there are bugs in this extremely standard file.11:06
pozicjrib: how unlikely it may sound...11:06
jribpozic: interesting.  '[[' is definitely a standard expression in bash.  I doubt there are bugs as it worked okay for the other user.  Is the bash you are using the one from the repositories?11:06

pozicjrib: yes, you are right, that it is standard.11:09
pozicjrib: still, it doesn't explain the issue.11:09
swiftyhas anyone ever had -no such process appear when using kill -9 ??11:10
jribpozic: let's try to remember what happened with the new user.  In this user you are sourcing .bashrc in .profile and in .bashrc, /etc/completion gets sourced.  In the new user .bashrc was sourced from .profile by default and /etc/bash_completion was sourced in .bashrc.  Is that correct?11:10
jrib"this user" means "old user"11:10
pozicjrib: wrong.11:11
jribpozic: ok, please correct me11:11
jribswifty: yes when I type a pid that doesn't exist11:11
pozicjrib: I only cp'ed ~/.bashrc to /home/test/.bashrc11:11
pozicjrib: so, quite likely it was never even executed.11:12
jribpozic: ah, so there is no /home/test/.profile?11:12
pozicjrib: you told me there is a standard file which does that, but I didn't check that.11:12
pozicjrib: yes, there is such a file.11:12
jribpozic: check that it sources .bashrc (should be lines 11-17 iirc)11:13
pozicjrib: and it seems that under normal conditions it should have executed .bashrc11:13
micka_z0i make a launcher : gksudo bleachbit . but this is not working the same with sudo bleachbit which i type from terminal. can someone please answer me why ?11:13
sashi, what is the cmd to find firmware and chipset for wlan card? tks11:13
pozicjrib: yes, there is a conditional, which I think returns true.11:13
xbonesxits hard to believe that no one has figured out how to edit the "place" menu file???11:13
jribpozic: I guess you can check that bash_completion is enabled on the test user or add some "touch foo" to .bashrc so we can be sure11:13
jribxbonesx: how about the way I said?11:13
pozicjrib: completion seems to be enabled, but I don't know a good command to test.11:14
xbonesxjrib: doesnt allow you to completely edit the contents of the menu structure11:14
pozicjrib: when I login as test, it executed a line from /home/test/.bashrc which referred to a non-existing file and reported that.11:15
jribpozic: can you be more specific?11:15
pozicjrib: /home/test/.git-completion.sh11:15
jribxbonesx: you want to delete stupff or what?11:15
pozicjrib: it tried to source that, but that file doesn't exist.11:15
jribpozic: ah I see.  Ok.11:15
pozicjrib: and the Ubuntu lines are above that.11:15
johan__Hey, i just installed Kaffeine and it does not show up in the program menu, how can i find it so i can start it?11:16
jribpozic: and in  ~test/.xsession-errors nothing special, right?11:16
xbonesxwell to be more specific my "filesystem" link under computer disappeared and i dont know why so i was trying to but it back, this is the default one im speaking of not an extra bookmark i could add11:16
pozicjrib: it is pretty much failed with all kinds of authentication errors, but nothing related to the issue we are discussing.11:17
pozicjrib: so, in short, yes.11:18
jribpozic: I want to guess that the file is being interpreted by something like dash instead of bash but I have no clue why that would be happening11:18
pozicjrib: what is 'the file'?11:18
maedoxxbonesx, there might be a better way, but you can easily make a link to / by pressing the little arrow beside your username in the "address" bar when in your home folder. Drag the hard drive icon to your bookmarks in nautilus.11:18
pozicjrib: bash_completion?11:18
jribpozic: bash_completion (or maybe more)11:18
xbonesxmaedox: thats the thing... it shows up in the left pane on the file browser but not in places menu on the panel menu11:19
pozicjrib: so, I can just add #!/bin/bash to bash_completion and it should work?11:19
johan__Hey, i just installed Kaffeine and it does not show up in the program menu, how can i find it so i can start it?11:20
maedoxxbonesx, you mean "Filesystem" doesn't show in Places? Neither does mine. It's not supposed to be there by default.11:20
pozicjrib: not a nice solution, but I have the impression that you are getting out of ideas too.11:20
micka_z0i make a launcher : gksudo bleachbit . but this is not working the same with sudo bleachbit which i type from terminal. can someone please answer me why ?11:20
jribpozic: no I don't think that would matter.  You can certainly try to test and see, won't hurt anything.  You can also temporarily rename /bin/dash to bash so we can rule it out.  Yeah, I'm just trying to figure out what is going on, then once we do that we can try to find a reason and a nice solution11:20
geirhapozic: That won't do anything11:20
maedoxmicka_z0, gksudo is for graphical apps, is bleachbit a text only app?11:20
xbonesxmaedox: are you sure, i always thought it was.... im going to feel really dumb if thats the case i have spent hours trying to figure this out11:21
micka_z0maedox: bleachbit has a gui.11:21
maedoxxbonesx, It's not here, and I have done nothing to remove it.11:21
pozicjrib: what I don't understand is that source .bashrc works just fine.11:21
maedoxmicka_z0, alright, then it's a bit odd. Run gksudo bleachbit in terminal and look for errors.11:21
xbonesxmaedox: wow... :S guess im going to give up on that one then... hahaha11:21
pozicjrib: that is as the user for which graphical logins are not working.11:21
jribpozic: yeah but you're running that in an interactive bash shell.  That's certainly not what gdm is doing11:22
* xbonesx bashes his head against a wall11:22
pozicjrib: non-graphical logins as this user do work, btw.11:22
maedoxxbonesx, careful with the wall :P11:22
geirhapozic: in .profile, you must test for bash before sourcing .bashrc11:22
[Anthony]I'm trying to install java and failing11:22
geirhapozic: .profile is sourced both by dash and bash login shells11:22
xbonesxmaedox: hard headed i shoijklh d beae finefa11:22
st__what is some lighteweight file manager for Ubbunty?11:23
[Anthony]when I  sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk it tells me that tere is no corresponding packet11:23
pozicjrib: in .gnomerc I do . $HOME/.profile, btw.11:23
maedoxxbonesx, lol what?11:23
micka_z0maedox: there is  no error on terminal.11:23
[Anthony]but that it exists in the database which indicates that it's obsolete11:23
maedoxmicka_z0, then I have no idea.11:23
jribpozic: ah what geirha says makes sense if you read the default .profile11:23
xbonesx"shoijklh d beae finefa" portraying being knocked silly...11:23
micka_z0maedox: ok. thank you!11:23
[Anthony]any ideas?11:23
pozicgeirha: test for bash, how?11:24
xbonesx"shoijklh d beae finefa" = "should be fine" LMAO11:24
sectorbst__: Thunar or Krusader11:24
jribpozic: use lines 11-17 in /etc/skel/.profile11:24

sectorbst__: Xfe is nice too11:25
st__it's not lightweight! besides, the altter is probably kde-dependant??11:25
xbonesxlol ruins the joke when you have to explain, but you laughed so i succeed11:25
geirhapozic: BASH_VERSION is a special internal variable that bash sets. dash should not set it.11:25

maedoxxbonesx, Home, Desktop, Computer, Bookmarks, List of other partitions, Network, Connect to Server, Search and Recent11:29
pozicgeirha: can you explain again why this fixes it?11:29
jtopperCan anyone tell me where to find details on how to build a custom Alternative Install CD?11:30
geirhapozic: .profile is sourced by an sh script gdm runs when you log in. sh is a symlink to dash by default, and dash doesn't understand all the bash syntax, so it will error out whenever it encounters them.11:30
pozicgeirha: .gnomerc?11:31
xbonesxjtopper: http://remastersys.sourceforge.net/remastersystool.html11:31
pozicgeirha: since I source it in .gnomerc myself (possibly again then).11:31
jtopperxbonesx: that looks to me as though it only covers the live CD, unless I'm missing something11:32
xbonesxjtopper: nope it lets you make a live cd of your current system setup11:32
geirhapozic: Possibly, yes.  Add an ''date >> /tmp/testfile'' to the start of .profile,  log in and see how many lines there are in /tmp/testfile and you'll know if it was sourced more than once.11:32
jtoppersadly that's not what I'm looking for.11:32
jtopperas far as I can tell, the recent kernel update for lucid has generated a new set of network install .udebs in the package repo which reference a symbol in the kernel which doesn't exist on the most current alternative install CD.  I'm hoping to find either a more recent alternative image, or instructions on how to make one from a currently installed kernel11:34
xbonesxjtopper: is that not what a alt cd is, a modified version of the original live cd???11:34
ubottuThe Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can  also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal11:34
jtopperI don't believe so.11:34
jtopperyes, sorry, alternate·11:35
xbonesxso i was right then?11:35
jtopperI don't believe so, no.  it looks to me as though they're built differently.11:36
xbonesxyou could do the same with the alt cd, install it then modify it, then make a bootable live cd using the program11:36
red2kicjtopper: Following Heron Hardy, I'm certain 10.04.1 will be released eventually.11:36
=== ahmeddrira is now known as Ahmed_Drira
xbonesxjtopper: you could install the alt cd update the kernel, if thats what your trying to do, then use the program to make a live cd again... ? <--- thats what you want to do right?11:37
oldschoollerHey guys! I'm just installing Ubuntu 10.04 Server LTS on Xen VM and want to know - what is hostname parameter should I use and for what it responsible?11:37

TrI30THello all, not sure if this is the right place, but I was just wondering if I could get some help writing a shell script, I'm a bit lost...11:41

ubottuTrI30T: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."11:41
maedoxtevoda, I believe it used to be Exim4, but they changed it to Dovecot in Lucid. There are several available in the repos.11:42
ubottuA Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) is the server software that sends and queues mail. The default MTA (and !MDA) on Ubuntu is !postfix ("exim" is also officially supported). See also !MailServer and !MUA11:42

oldschoolleraeon-ltd, I'm confused with this as in VPS control panel I have string "Hostname: vds666.coolhostingcompany.com"11:42
oldschoolleraeon-ltd, should I use this one when installing OS ?11:43
magnetronoldschooller: doesn't matter11:43
aeon-ltdoldschooller: i assume thats the hostname of your isp, please read the wiki for more info11:43
xbonesxwhats the terminal command for cleaning up useless packages in synaptic package manager?11:43
TrI30TWell my server is running Ubuntu 9.1 and I'm trying to write up a shell script for cron that will automatically stop a game server, zip/tar/gzip a backup of it, delete any extra backups (I only want 3 available at a time), run a map generating program and then restart the server11:43
magnetronoldschooller: the UNIX hostname doesn't have to be identical to the webserver hostname11:43
jollymanI installed alternate 64 and the installed "Lubuntu-Desktop". It works, but now I want to use Gnome and ubuntu too. Can I just install it vis synaptic, and then choose on the login, which desktop-enviroment to start?11:44

oldschoollermagnetron, aeon-ltd Thanks!11:45
TrI30TI think I have the right idea so far but I don't think I'm doing it quite right, this is what I have so far http://pastebin.org/102637311:45
maedoxTrI30T, do you have any experience in the shell? Do you know how to stop/start services, use tar/gzip etc., and find?11:45
maedoxTrI30T, alright, I'll take a look.11:45
TrI30TI have very little experience, I'm pretty new to linux as a whole, when I started writing this script I had NO idea what I was doing so it's kind of piecemealed together from various tutorials on the net11:46
jollymanI know that I installed "Lubuntu-Desktop", but in the synaptic manager it states, that it isn't installed. Can I just install it anyway? last question for now :p11:46
maedoxTrI30T, ok, I'll set you straight. :D11:46
TrI30TI do have programming experience with PHP/MySQL and a little bit of C# though11:46
aeon-ltdjollyman: lubuntu-desktop is a metapackage11:46
ubottuA meta-package is a package that simply depends upon other packages and brings them in. It's not a real package, but a very useful package that can drag in other package versions.11:46
snezhi, I have about 200 httpd processes running on my system and I can't figure out what they are as they don't appear in my logfile. Is there another way with top/ps/other to find out what those httpd requests are?11:47
TrI30Tmaedox I know a few lines are horribly wrong, like the $DATE - 3 bit, I was just trying to place what I wanted where11:47
jollymanaeon-ltd: I heard that, but what does it tell me?11:47
TrI30Ter, or rather the idea of what I wanted to do11:47
jollymanaeon-ltd: the lubuntu package show in synaptic11:48
aeon-ltdjollyman: nothing, it doesn't really do anything but make it easier to install a group of packages on first install11:49
maedoxTrI30T, 1. you should avoid using killall and consider using any built in methods for stopping and starting services.   2. Use tar instead of zip to keep the permissions. tar czf filename.tgz dir1/ dir2/ file1 file2    3. why are you using && on some lines?   4. read up on find -mtime  to see how to easier find files older than a set number of days.11:49

jollymanaeon-ltd: nice, I hope everything works here,.. hehe11:49
sasaniakbut afaik irc chops away long strings :)11:50
bejoHello all11:50
TrI30Tmaedox I used && because I saw that it would only run the next command if the previous command finished, I'm trying to use them to ensure that the next command doesn't start while the first one is running (trying to map the server while it's being compressed for instance)11:50
sasaniakso, after rebooting with the latest updates, network manager says the wifi is disabled. rfkill list says 1: phy0: wireless LAN, soft blocked: no, hard blocked: yes11:51
jan33snez: netstat -tpe11:51
maedoxTrI30T, I see, that's what I thought. You should use if statements, because && might give unforeseen consequences sometimes.11:51
sasaniakmy button for wifi on my laptop is blue, so it should be turned on (i was able to turn it on and off with that button before rebooting)11:51
TrI30Tmaedox how do I use an if statement to check if an action is done though?11:52
sasaniakmy laptop is hp probook 6440b, wifi driver is iwlagn11:52

sasaniaksudo ifconfig wlan0 up: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Unknown error 13211:53

hobbleAll the tabs are just getting merged into them..11:54
hobbleCan somebody help on this, please?11:55
maedoxTrI30T, I believe it is better to check the prerequisites for the commands (e.g. check that file and to-dir exists before doing mv) first and then execute them, that way you will also not continue with anything before all previous commands are done correctly.11:55

bazhang!away > Wo-TaoYan11:57
ubottuWo-TaoYan, please see my private message11:57
TrI30Twell maedox I need to figure out if something is done, like compressing the folder before I move it, checking the prerequisits will result in a true statement even while it's still compressing and the move command will execute anyways11:58
TrI30Tor at least I assume the move command will execute, I don't know exactly how bash runs each line11:58
maedoxTrI30T, that ps | grep statement will probably always be True too, because it will match the grep process. Using ps -ef | grep '[u]nique string' will not match the grep process if nothing is found.11:58
iflemaTrI30T: there is also while, until, and for to consider... see if you can draw what you want... work it out then code it or rewrite on the fly whatever takes ya fancy ;)11:59
maedoxTrI30T, bash scripts are executed top to bottom, so it will wait for the compression before continuing.11:59
LjLmaedox, TrI30T: perhaps it would be better to use "pidof" in the first place? that will return false if there is no such process11:59
Ubuwhatj #sane12:00
geirhaTrI30T: Also, there's no point in checking if a process is running if you are just gonna kill it anyway.  man pkill12:00
maedoxLjL, TrI30T, but one would still need to check which is which if there are more than one java process.12:00
maedoxgeirha, TrI30T, that is a good point. :)12:01
UbuwhatHi all.12:01
LjLmaedox: true. i didn't really read the scrollback of this.12:01
TrI30Twell, I rewrote that bit so it's java ServerLauncher, which is the actual name12:01
FlexGuyanybody knows mdadm?12:02

ksbalajiI've installed 10.04 But on booting, I get GRUB _ and the cursor blinks. I have a bootloader in windows. How to chain bootload? (the /boot/grub/grub.cnf file exists.12:03
aeon-ltdsasaniak: hardware blocked?, no idea but you could try turning it on and off again (no i'm not patronising)12:03
TrI30TIt's a bit complicated though, and this is something else I wanted to ask, when I run java ServerLauncher I can issue server commands from that session, I usually use a screen so that I can detach and logout without leaving the putty terminal up all the time, If there's a way, I'd like to set it up so that the script issues a "stop" command to the java program to make sure the server shuts down the way it's supposed to as opposed to just ki12:03
TrI30Tlling it12:03
sasaniakaeon-ltd: tried that, tried rebooting twice, didn't help12:04

redHello, I'm having a problem configuring subversion on my ubuntu server - permissions mainly. I've added www-data and myself into a group called subversion, chowned the repo folder with -R to www-data:subversion, but still when trying to svn co I get this: svn: Can't make directory 'icium': Permission denied12:18
redI followed this guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Subversion12:18
red(except fully in command line)12:18
TrI30TI can't explain it very well but when I run java ServerLauncher, I get a readout of what people are doing on the server and I can issue commands like "list" and "stop" and whatnot, by using the stop there it saves all the data on the server before shutting down, which is much preferable to just killing the process12:19

heleenDr_Willis, yeah, I switched on the laptop with the monitor attached and closed the lid of the laptop directly so it only boots with the external monitor switched on13:37

stevecoh1Question about grub2:  what does this line in grub.cfg mean, exactly?  search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set d7cab10c-b5b4-4169-bea6-1728d208496613:39

stevecoh1what is the uuid supposed to be the id OF?13:39
ubottuTo see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)13:39
heleenDr_Willis, it is a TFT monitor. (AOC F22S) with the system/monitor tool I can only select one refresh rate at the highest resolution (60hz), which is correct according to the specifications of the monitor13:40
Dr_Willisuuid of the 'root' device i think where /boot/ is to be found13:40
stevecoh1Thank you.  I have just cloned a hard drive and the new one won't boot even though the grub menu comes up.13:40
sacarlsonstevecoh1: it's the id of the hardrive so you can move it do different sdaX sdbX positions and it will still be found and boot13:40
stevecoh1So on a different hard drive this would have to be changed?13:41
maedoxstevecoh1, yes, you need to change the UUID in /etc/fstab13:41
sacarlsonstevecoh1: normaly yes at format that number is created.  I guess if you clone the drive you could cause a problem with this system13:42
Dr_Willisyou  can chantge the uuid with the tune2fs command.. but ive rarely needed to mess with them13:43
stevecoh1If I wanted to change the UUID, how would I know what to change it TO?13:43
Dr_Willischange it to the one mentioned in the grub file perhaps.13:43
Dr_Willisor boot a live cd, chroot to the installed system and rerun 'update-grub' and it should generate a proper grub files13:43
heleenDr_Willis, I see that the h frequency is 67Hz and vertical is 60hz in the OSD menu of the monitor. In the system/monitor tool of ubuntu I can only select 60Hz. SHould it be 67?13:43
Dr_Willisheleen:  not sure. ive rarely had issues with LCD's  this is using a CRT or DVI connection?13:44
maedoxheleen, no, it's the vertical freq, and it's correct.13:44
heleennormal vga df-sub13:44
Dr_Willisheleen:  no way to use DVI eh?13:44
stevecoh1I tried booting to a live CD and it wouldn't let me run update-grub saying the root partition wasn't mounted and it wouldn't let me mount it.  It did let me mount the boot partition, but I couldn't run update-grub.13:44
AbhiJiti have tasm in my c: drive of wine. how to run it from terminal?13:44
heleenDr_Willis, since the laptop doesn't have DVI and neither does the lcd13:44
Dr_Willisheleen:  it could be its gettting the wrng info from the monitor. It may need to be 67. I use dvi/hdmi when ever i can13:45
SirDidihow can i stream my line in input on my wlan?13:45
Dr_Willisheleen:  My New laptop has HDMI :)13:45
Dr_WillisSirDidi:  vlc can do that.13:45
maedoxstevecoh1, it's not straight forward to do that. you need to chroot after mounting /.13:45
Dr_WillisSirDidi:  and proberly other ways also13:45
heleenthis one is only a few months old and hasn't got either since we don't need high def video13:45
SirDidiDr_Willis, do you know how? i can onyl find the options to stream mp3s etc13:45
maedoxstevecoh1, this guide might help: http://ubuntuguide.net/how-to-restore-grub-2-after-reinstalling-windows-xpvistawin713:46
stevecoh1Dr Willis: "change it to the one mentioned in the grub file perhaps."  Change it where to the one mentioned in the grub file?  I was going to change the grub file.  You have a different idea, but I don't understand where you suggest I make the change.13:46

heleenDr_Willis, I managed with cvt, xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode to add 67Hz as refresh rate for the 1920x1080 resolution, but that didn't work. The monitor just turns off then (fortunately it reverts after 15 secs).13:52
sacarlsonenetic: I would look for the external switch it normaly has an led that indicates the state of wifi13:53
heleenand according to the docs it indeed also should be 1920x1080 @ 60Hz13:53
eneticsacarlson, its to the far right.. but the light is red instead of blue13:53
eneticrockhopper, i just did the lspci13:53

LinuxFreakDI need to pull the contents of 32 part zip out however the default archive manager only pulls the contents from the first part so the files are unusable. Anyone who how to fix?14:00
