Jordan_Ucjae: Yes, it's a known bug as there were incompatible changes to syslinux between 10.04 and 10.10. Let me try to find the bug report.00:10
scott___I'm having the problem referred to in this thread: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/468924.  Should I reopen this bug?  I'm not sure if perhaps it has been fixed and I'm simply missing something.00:11

unkmarnow from a while in server, you can, "ssh localhost -p 1922" to control b.00:12
kneauxare those (bear with me, i'm weak) standard ports or will i have to figure out my configuration00:12

_genuser_guys, anyone got ideas about why the wifi stopped working all of a sudden?00:13
_genuser_the card isn't even active on boot.00:13
unkmarkneaux: I made up the 1822 and 1922 ports.  They are high enough not to require root.  22 is standard.00:13
kneauxunkmar, where can i go to read about those ranges00:13
unkmarkneaux: port ranges?00:14
Jordan_Ucjae: There is probably an "official" work around if I can find the bug report, but I would personally just install grub2 instead of syslinux. If you pastebin the syslinux configuration file from the USB Startup Disk Creator made I can give you a grub.cfg you can use to boot it, and tell you how to install grub2 to the external drive.00:14
unkmarkneaux: below 1024 requires root.  as far as know the rest of the standard ports.. you can look them up as needed through google.00:14

antIPedbian: Interestingly, I'm not aiming to backup my home directory, but my secondary drive where I save my data. However, I suppose I could start using my home dir primarily and then backing up. I sort of like the idea of backing up to an image, which seems to be what partimage is doing.01:13
sandydscott___: here -> http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/maverick/beta#Known%20issues01:14
ChogyDanruif13: I would try a later kernel, and it that doesn't work, file a bug01:14
cjaeJordan_U:  im making the disk on a 10.10 the startup is 10.04 I think that bug is on 10.04 making a 10.10 startup01:14
edbianantIP, That's exactly what partimage does.01:14
antIPedbian: I'll probably do the reading myself. I was just hoping to get some advice from someone I trust. You know, get pointed in the right direction.01:14
Jordan_Ucjae: Ahh, I thought you were going the other way around.01:14
edbianantIP, rsync has the advantage that it is very flexible.01:15
antIPedbian: Partimage does not support ext401:15
sandydcanonhead311: hmm... interesting... it should be working if samba has access to the folder...01:15
edbianantIP, cron will automate it for you.  All of what I've talked about so far is manual backup.  There are packages in the repos that do backups all for you (with a gui to configure how it works)01:15
edbianantIP, oh then that's right out01:15

cjaeJordan_U:    dd if=~/Downloads/ubuntuwhateverserver.iso of=/dev/sdX01:16
LoshkiantIP: the most space-efficient backups basically take a full dump periodically followed by incrementals. I'd look for a package that makes that process (and the restores) as easy as possible. The biggest mistake is to set up a backup system and then forget to test it periodically by attempting to restore a random file...01:16
Jordan_Ucjae: That will not work.01:16
cjaeJordan_U: ok01:17
canonhead311sandyd: from everything i have read it should be working, i am fairly new to linux ~1 year but i can get it to work on my laptop with ubuntu 9.04, however on my desktop ubuntu 9.04 server with 5 internal hdd i cant get it to share anything outside my home dir01:17

gartralChogyDan: that file doesnt exist.. at all01:53
mamece2edbian. ok fine, i feel like am leavin noobness01:53

MooshiMuushiHey peeps, Is there a way to move a folder into a different place without placing it in another folder? I put the view on "list" so there's no empty space to put my mouse over and move the folder into the place. Not within another folder, that is at the place.01:59

Myke_113Hi, I am trying to install Ubuntu, and I was able to get it to install with the nomodeset option,  now how do I get this nomodeset installed into grub?  The monitor won't turn on without that option, and I never see a grub screen appear, there is no Windows on this computer only Ubuntu01:59
indroraMooshiMuushi, What do you mean?02:00
threadmetalindrora, removed and freshly created with update-rc.d -- this one really has me stumped =)02:00
ChogyDangartral: I don't really know about chrome, I use chromium-daily myself02:00
xbonesxMyke_113: run the live cd and install grub02:00
ChogyDangartral: I guess sudo apt-get update, and try whatever02:00
indrorathreadmetal, Sounds like something awkward. I use debian-stable for bind and friends :v02:00
xbonesxMyke_113 | !grub202:00
indrora!grub2 | Myke_11302:01
ubottuMyke_113: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since Ubuntu 9.10.  For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub202:01
Myke_113xbonesx: How do I get it to install from the live CD when Ubuntu is already installed?02:01
gartralChogyDan: Search pattern not terminated at (eval 1) line 1. is given when i try sudo rename ./pkgcache.bin ./pkgcache.bak02:01
Myke_113So install grub 1?02:01
indroraMyke_113, from a terminal run grub-install02:01
mattgyverMyke_113, you will need to edit /etc/default/grub add the nodemodeset option to GRUB_CMD_LINUX_DEFAULT option and run update-grub02:01
threadmetalindrora, no choices there -- it's a VPS. Guess it's time to deal with their &@#$ support..02:01

xbonesxindrora: thanks02:02
MooshiMuushiindrora, I'm trying to place "folder 1" into "place 1", but in "place 1" it is full of folders. The view is on "list". So place "folder 1" within "place 1" would be hard, because there is no empty space to put the mouse over.02:02

threadmetalindrora, do you know if 'default' ubuntu is to install named in /usr/sbin ?02:02
mkquistMooshiMuushi: command line? in the terminal you can move it without your mouse02:02
mattgyverMyke_113, not without any lowel level file manipulation02:02
ChogyDanarchangelpetro: correct02:02
MooshiMuushiindrora, placing*02:03
indrorathreadmetal, Depends on the package.02:03
indroraWait, named?02:03
indroraHmm02:03
indroraAsk the package repo: packages.ubuntu.com02:03
mattgyversorry Myke_113 that low level statement was directed at mamece2 :X02:03
threadmetalindrora, thx, didn't think of that :-)02:03
indroraMooshiMuushi, So you have ../folder 1 and ../place 1 and you want ../folder 1/place 102:03
indroraMooshiMuushi, or have I got that reversed?02:04
ChogyDangartral: oh, then I dunno.  Maybe time to reinstall then, maybe it is a dbus error?02:04
MooshiMuushiindrora, mkquist, Using the terminal? Is there a key to press down, while using the mouse?02:04
JonathanYCHi! Has anyone has success with getting a Ximeta NDAS-powered drive to operate with ubuntu?02:04
indroraMooshiMuushi, you're using GNOME, right?02:04
mkquistMooshiMuushi: in the terminal your typing the command, not using the mouse02:04
MooshiMuushiindrora, Yes. It is simple.02:04
MooshiMuushiindrora, Yes.02:04
indroraMooshiMuushi, cut-paste.02:04
indroraMooshiMuushi, Select the folder you want to move. Right click-> cut.02:04
MooshiMuushimkquist, trying out mouse. :D02:04
indroraMooshiMuushi, go into the folder you want that folder to live in02:05
indroraMooshiMuushi, press Ctl-V02:05

archangelpetrosweetpi: ChogyDan where does source download to by default?02:05
elijahCan I have two bootable partitions on a USB drive? I have Ubuntu on 1 partition and I want to put Gparted LIVE on another? Is this possible?02:05
JonathanYCThe Ximeta drivers don't seem to work.02:05
mkquistMooshiMuushi: =)02:05
archangelpetrooh, i think i found out..02:05
MooshiMuushiindrora, That would place the "folder 1" into "place 1" without accidentally placing it into "Folder 2".02:05
archangelpetrocurreny directory?02:05
indroraMooshiMuushi, No, it wouldn't02:06
JonathanYCThey have a package which I assume is supposed to be the source, but I am unsure of how to compile, and their "instructions" are a edead link02:06
sweetpiarchangelpetro: should be /usr/src02:06
gartrali need better than ISDN speed xx02:06
mattgyverMyke_113, sorry, are you using grub1 or grub202:06
indroraMooshiMuushi, paste in Nautilus affects the folder VIEWED not SELECTED.02:06
ChogyDangartral: what does tail /var/log/messages report after a bus error?02:06
indroraMooshiMuushi, All else fails, use a cmd line.02:06
mamece2mattgyver, so any change of cover i do in any program is just to see in that particular programme02:06
Myke_113mattgyver: It's whatever Ubuntu 10.04 installed by default on a completely empty hard drive02:06
archangelpetrosweetpi: ? really? it downloaded to current directory here.02:06
mattgyvermamece2, yeah more or less.02:06

gartralChogyDan: dunno, never did that02:07
MooshiMuushimkquist, Thank you as well :D02:07
mattgyverMyke_113, yeah so the directions I have given you are correct02:07
mkquistMooshiMuushi: get it done?02:07
sweetpiarchangelpetro: well then your right :)02:07
* indrora chugs some jolt02:07
MooshiMuushimkquist, Yeppers :D02:07
mattgyverMyke_113, its probably easiest to just reboot and manually enter the nomodeset option and then do it from there02:07
mkquistMooshiMuushi: your welcome02:07
mattgyverMyke_113, does that make sense?02:07
ChogyDangartral: one possibility that I'm seeing from google is a bad HDD  :(02:07
Myke_113Yeah but I can't get to any option that lets me into grub options02:07
Myke_113In the past when I installed with windows on it, I got a grub menu, there IS no grub menu this time02:08
indroraMyke_113, Wait... Hold on02:08
indroraMyke_113, was the pattern02:08

indrorainstall ubuntu -> install Windows?02:08
indroraor the other way around?02:08
gartralindrora: its a pain to do it the other way around02:09
Myke_113in the past I had windows installed but this computer had a completely new hard drive put into it and we chose not to reinstall windows, just Ubuntu02:09
indroragartral, Actually, its easier to install ubuntu AFTER.02:09
Myke_113but it needs the nomodeset and I can't get in to change that02:09
indroraMyke_113, Hold shift during boot.02:09
Myke_113ok let me try that02:09
indroraMyke_113, that pulls up GRUB2's page02:09

MooshiMuushigartral, Generally just closing the terminal while it's downloading will pause it, and it'll start downloading from where it left off next time.02:36
MooshiMuushiClosing the terminal while it's INSTALLING packages however, is not such a good idea.02:36

Jordan_UAvo: This may not be very helpfull, but I investigated that claim a while back and couldn't find a credible source for it.Though I couldn't find any refutation either.03:01
icarus-cAvo, isn't damage to cpu or can't handle voltage that i've heard.  but something about power management. that  any OS other than Mac OS X on Mac consume way more power03:01
Chaos2358instead of using the external like i asked her to she moved it to my laptop03:01

HaPK_PerCarRyen, it's in spanish... but I'll paste it03:05
Avoicarus-c, Well, no more than I can expect of Windows running hardware.03:05
arrrghhhAvo, but just like icarus-c said, the linux kernel supports a lot of architectures... and since apple uses intel procs now, i SERIOUSLY doubt that it would actually do physical damage to your proc.03:05
edbianantIP, which is?03:05
melrockzno. I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 successfully now. But it's reaching end of life.03:06
Chaos2358can you also tell me why im having trouble with dvd playback? ive installed the restricted software needed and the dvds play but are very very grainy and skip and freeze alot03:06
Avoarrrghhh, :D This iMac was a gift, at a time when I had a lovefest with Apple. Oh how I wish I had gotten some parts to build my own in retrospect :)03:06
Jordan_UAvo: I think that if it were true there would be more people reporting actually encountering issues, and there would likely be a bug report as well. I've been running Ubuntu on my first generation macbook pro for years without problems, (often with less ventalation than I should :) and have had no problems. But it's supposedly newer macs that are more affected.03:06
antIPedbian: my external drive is almost full. the files on the drive are pretty much the same files on my secondary. but i've added/changed some files on my secondary drive over the last month. Anway...03:06

HaPK_PerCarRyen, http://paste.ubuntu.com/501231/03:07
edbianantIP, can you pastebin the output of sudo fdisk -l  It'll give me an idea of your system03:07
AvoJordan_U, Mhmm. The whole thing makes no sense to me on a technical level. Since when does the software OS manage the processor voltage anyhow..03:07
arrrghhhAvo, to save battery life or to increase performance...03:07
HaPK_PerCarRyen, it basicly says that it can't install because I'm using an unstable distribution, which I find odd, I'm on lucid03:07
antIPedbian: when I go to copy the files from my secondary onto the external I get an error saying that there is not enough room. Now, I know for a fact that there is enough room. the problem seems to be that the instead of overwriting the files that already exist nautilus is treating them like new files...does that make sense?03:08
RyenHaPK_PerCar: I can read it, and it is awkward. Let me look into it really fast.03:08

edbianantIP, I think it's pretty straight forward  http://paste.ubuntu.com/03:09

arrrghhhmelrockz, they'll be moved to the archive... why not just upgrade?03:12
Jordan_U!eol | melrockz03:12
ubottumelrockz: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades03:12
tigrangI had found a forum post of what to use to compile Firefox in order to get better looking fonts. I can't seem to find it now, does anyone know what it is? Thanks03:13
antIPedbian: No, I don't expect them to be deleted.03:13
rwwmelrockz: Security updates stop being released, the archive is eventually removed from the mirrors and put on an old releases server, and as a consequence of the latter upgrading to a supported version becomes harder.03:13
melrockzarrrghhh: Sorry, I've to upgrade my whole PC first :-( Even windows 7 does not run... but no finances now.03:14
edbianantIP, Ok.  Explain the problem again.  I don't quite get it.  Try to explain it in a different way :)03:14
aemaethwell, Jordan_U any luck? otherwise i think i'll re-install, (except now my cdrom isn't being recognized)03:14
sinmandoes anyone know anything about cedega?03:15
aemaethplz pm me if you do, so i get the msg03:15
edbianantIP, Sorry to make you type a lot! :P03:15
arrrghhhmelrockz, why?  10.04 runs on a pretty meager system...03:16
icarus-csinman, a wine fork which cost money03:16
adamonline45So I'm having a weird issue.  I have a RAID 5 array.  Upon boot, my Disk Utility shows 2 instances of that array, neither of which can be used.  I have to stop them, then use mdadm -A -s to re-start it; then it works.  I only have one entry in my mdadm.conf.  Where else are RAID devices initialized?  Is this implicit or is my mdadm init getting run twice?  I'm at a loss :(03:16
melrockzrww: But the repos still exist so that we can install old soft, right?03:16
sinmanicarus-c: I know, but does wine needs to be installed along with cedega03:16
rwwmelrockz: they move to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/ . I'd strongly, strongly recommend upgrading before it reaches that point.03:16
rwwNot getting security updates is a bad thing.03:16
icarus-csinman, no.  cedega is a wine fork, hence  cedega is "wine"03:17
antIPedbian: Here is the problem. Let's say i have to directories. Inside both directories is 100 files. Both sets are exactly the same. One directory can store 100 files, and the other directory can only store 150 files (because of the size of the drive). I should be able to copy the files from the first directory to the second directory because the files from the first directory will just sync with the files of the same name on the first dire03:17
antIPctory, right? However, for some reason nautilus is telling me that I can't copy the files because I only have room for 150 files! It's not understanding that the files are actually the same, and should just sync, and is, instead, treating the files as though they're not the same and acts as though I'm attempting to transfer 100 new files into the directory, for a total of 200 files. Does that make sense?03:17
elijahJordan_U: Interesting, thankx!03:17
sinmanicarus-c: k thanxs03:17
icarus-csinman, and cedega & wine shouldn't mix together03:17
Jordan_Uelijah: You're welcome.03:17
melrockzIt's my video card: Intel 845gl. Found a page called 'Lucidi8xxFreezes' but workaround don't seem to really work...03:17
sinmanicarus-c: k just wasn't sure about that03:17
arrrghhhmelrockz, huh, not sure what to tell you.  you could install 8.04 haha03:18
sinmanI tried everything that different websites had said to get runes of magic to work in wine, but never had any luck with it03:18
edbianantIP, Are you using the cp command or are you clicking and dragging?03:18
icarus-cantIP, if you want it like that,  why don't use just make one directory and make a symlink to it03:18
edbianicarus-c, The goal is to have everything on 1 hdd03:18
sdwrageHey all03:19
antIPedbian: It's kind of hard too explain. In windows if I tried to copy files that were the same, it would give me an option to copy and overwrite older files, or to copy and create duplicate files, or to skip copying the duplicate files all-together. That's what I'd like to do. I just want to copy the files over that DO NOT exist on the external drive. But nautulis doesn't seem to want to let me do that.03:19
sdwragehow do I install a microcode driver file?03:19
antIPedbian: I'm clicking and dragging.03:19
melrockzarrrghhh: hehe, 9.04 works just fine. Just trying to upgrade.03:19
Jordan_Uaemaeth: No, sorry.03:19
icarus-cantIP, when you have two same file,  they will both be stored on disk, (linux doesn't care they are the same or not)03:19
edbianantIP, Yeah it usually gives that sort of option too.  I suspect it's just creating fileName(2).file  type things.03:19
antIPicarus-c: Well, because I don't know what a symlink is ;-)03:20
sinmanwould anyone know a good site to get a game called runes of magic installed with wine03:20
icarus-cantIP, oh... you mean like overwriting?..03:20
arrrghhhmelrockz, i know it does, but you're losing support for it.  that's never a good situation to be in, unless you just don't mind not upgrading until you can afford a new rig.03:20
edbianantIP, in windows a symlink is called a shortcut03:20
sdwrageHow do you load a microcode driver? anyone?03:20
antIPedbian: Yeah, I want the newer of both files to overwrite the older.03:20
Jordan_Usinman: Have you checked appdb?03:20
sdwragetrying to get my wifi/wimax device setup and got the microcode (ucode) file but don't know how to load it03:20
icarus-cantIP, mkdir   folder1; touch folder1/blah; ln -s folder1 folder2 ;  ls folder2  # this would give you the file "blah"  in folder103:21
edbianantIP, mmmm, yeah.  Maybe we should try using rsync.  I'm not sure why nautilus isn't doing that for you.03:21
GoldenApeI'm trying to run the foolowing makefile under ubuntu: http://codepad.org/Ug9dE35h03:21
antIPedbian: Oh, yeah, symbolic link. Ok.03:21
GoldenApewhich generate the following error: http://codepad.org/KhQ5Dmvy03:21
sinmanJordan_U: yes done like people had said to get it done from winehq, but still unable to get it to work03:23
sinmanJordan_U: I think I'll just keeep at it, eventually I'll get this game to work. lol03:23
antIPedbian: I'm not sure, but I think that nautilus is not doing it because it's checking to see if the free space on the disk is smaller than the size of the files I'm copying first, before it checks to see if the files can sync. You know what I mean?03:23
arrrghhhffmpeg mutlithreaded anyone?  can't install it.03:23
ryyzyyHey I'm trying to set vlc as my default player for MP3s. I've tried Open With -> Other Application -> Vlc; With 'Set VLC as default program for opening MP# files"03:23
antIPedbian: So it's throwing an error saying that there isn't enough disk space. But if it would just give me an option to skip copying duplicate files first, before it copies, then i should have plenty of space.03:23
melrockzYa, that makes sense. Looks like support for i845 cards is long gone ;-) Thanks everyone.03:23
edbianantIP, rsync -u /path/to/source/* /path/to/destination03:23
edbianantIP, Yeah.03:23
edbianantIP, try rsync03:23
icarus-cantIP, i just did a little test and found that in nautilus, if you copy  and paste files to the same folder, duplicates will be renamed to  (Copy).  if you paste to different folder, it will ask you to replace/skip/cancel03:24
antIPedbian: Ok.03:24
mkquistarrrghhh: do you have the source?03:24
antIPicarus-c: Actually it wont give you that option if the drive you are copying to has less free space on it than the amount that you're copying.03:25

zonyldtcrshr: Try to force unmount it.  From terminal "umount -f /dev/cdrom""03:27

arrrghhhmkquist, following a how-to that asks me to clone the git repo... but it fails.  is there a better way?03:30
zonyldtcrshr: yah.. You need to find out the moint point.  probably /media/cdrom or something.  Do a 'mount' and look for it.03:30
zonyldtcrshr: I havent had a cdrom in so long I dont know where ubuntu puts it anymore03:30
sweetpizonyl: the keys shouldnt be generated on the target, if your just wanting to create separate keys, use ssh-keygen with -f to specify the output file, then put the public key in the targets authorized_keys03:31
antIPry edbian: Ok. Thanks for telling me what those commands are. I appreciate it. The question I suppose the device path is /media/secondary/ rather than something like /sdb1/. I still don't understand the different ways of naming drives. I know there's also some other name in fstab.03:31
dtcrshriv tryed sudo umount /media/cdrom/ -l03:31
dtcrshrand cdrom0, both told me they werent mounted03:32
mkquistarrrghhh: how long before it fails?03:32
edbianantIP, /dev/sdb  is how you talk about the physical device.  /dev/sdb1 is how you talk about a physical partition.  /media/secondary is how you talk about the files on a partition  UUID is another way to talk about partitions.03:32
arrrghhhmkquist, immediately.03:32
edbianantIP, You want to use /media/secondary with rsync because it deals with files / folders03:32
mkquistarrrghhh: give me a mo03:32
mamece2can i configure RythmBox to stop from a hotkey from any worstattion?03:32

arrrghhhmkquist, thanks... i think i'm going to need it on this one.03:40

Cerebr0Because Nautilus comes standard on Ubuntu 10.0405:05
Ellisok that answered my question thank you alot05:05
icarus-cEllis, doesn't matter. since even you are BT-ing virus,  they wouldn't affect Linux unless you intentionally run them05:05
Droneusing 10.10 here05:06
EllisCerebr0 yep got it all going smooth05:06
Cerebr0Ellis I use avast to scan MP3 files I download from the net05:06
cloudfreeNautilus steals some elements from thunar i think05:06
Ellisso i should have something to scan downloaded mp3 and mp4 files?05:06
icarus-ccloudfree, i wouldn't say steal. but all open source software get the good bits from others05:07
cloudfreehehe05:07
doobienanyone know how i can get the volume control on my panel?05:07
Cerebr0Ok Drone sorry about that, I am no expert by any stretch of the word, I just try to help when I can05:07
icarus-ccloudfree, Linux get good stuff from *BSD or any other OS too05:07
Ellisconfused now05:07
Dronenp05:07
Ellisone says yes one says no05:07
icarus-cEllis, as i said, if you got Windows involved with your system. (say you may put those mp3 to Windows),  so yes.05:08
icarus-cEllis, or if you don't want to be a virus carrier, yes05:08
cloudfreeicarus-c: did linus know what the bsd is at that moment?05:08
Ellisokay thats where i got lost if i download it and play it it wont effect my system but it could effect any other systems i put it on?05:09
icarus-ccloudfree, who knows. but you are not only be able to get stuff BEFORE writing linux right?...05:09
aemaethscan with clamav before you put it on a windows system05:09
icarus-ccloudfree, say we have  ZFS  implementation too05:09
cloudfreeicarus-c: iirc, linus got ideas from minix05:09
sandGorgonhi guys... anyone know if openssl 1.0 has TSA (RFC 3161) built in. Previously, it needed the opentsa patch to be applied - but it is not available for Openssl 1.005:10
aemaethEllis: nix is good for ripping Sony cd's because of the rootkits they put on windows05:10
Ellisthanks05:10
icarus-cEllis, those virus don't affect Linux (like 99.999%) and among those 0.000...1%, they won't affect Linux if you don't execute them by youself05:11
Pr3nt1c3I accidentally removed the volume control from my panel...05:11

xbonesxicarus-c: if that gets rid of the ugly purple background then yes05:17
juk____lhx: not there in there either05:17
icarus-cright.. xbonesx do you mean background of Grub, or plymouth splash (the graphical animated boot screen),  or gnome spash (you see when you login,  default disabled)05:18

LoshkiArsic: clearly the fs *was* touched. Cancelling after applying on a mostly reverse-engineered filesystem seems like it's just asking for trouble...06:10
MTecknologyCharlieSu: you can just tell rsyslog to backup to that partition - but I'd suggesnt an rsync with cron instead - keep two copies06:10
icarus-cArsic, if you have read the ntfsfix man page, it clearly says that its function is very limited.06:11

mamece2BT and ubuntu are debian based rite?07:06
mattgyverArsic, learned something new then.  No i wouldnt use ubuntu repos on it just as you shouldnt for standard debian systems since they could be packaged differently07:06

cancuengthi. I had a problem (i dont know why) but had corrupted files. I know that something messed up because eth0 didn't up automatically etc after the fix of fsck. How do I check that all the installed software is correctly installed?07:08
bobstromamece2:  ubuntu is more convenient. both are excellent.07:08
Cerebr0because Ubuntu takes the best of Debian and improves it07:08
dr0idguys I am on KDE, deleting a simple file takes about 1-2 mins, it used to get deleted at the hit of the delete button fee weeks ago, but for the past 1-2 weeks, I am facing this issue, please help me07:08
mamece2i just dont go fully with BT coz i am new at this, and i need the easy installation and driver of ubuntu07:08
bobstromamece2:  there are pros and cons to both, but knowing one you'll know both pretty well.07:08

uwafflesasageglad someone understands this07:08
bobstrouwafflesasage:  enjoy the mustic.07:08
mattgyvermamece2, Plus its built off debian unstable which is generally cutting edge, unless you wanna run unstalbe which isnt exactly simple07:08
uwafflesasageGEEZ!07:08
bobstrouwafflesasage:  er, music07:09
uwafflesasagegod bless you07:09
Cerebr0I'm assuming Ubuntu has more money backing it up. That's just a guess though07:09
uwafflesasageeveryone07:09
mattgyverCerebr0, I think Shuttleworth is still the only guy funding Canonical if i remember right07:09
mamece2i love this chat, so many answers07:09
Cerebr0Well he has plenty of money07:09
bobstrointent is for canonical to be for-profit -- at least at some point -- no?07:09
mattgyverYeah, and hes been to space :(07:09
cloudfreea noble, in other word07:10
Cerebr0yea enough said lol07:10

Arsicif you start with a penetration testing central distro such as BT, you might be overwhelmed with the amount of tools or programs. it might be better to start with something more standardized such as ubuntu. if you're doing penetration testing, then you can install some of the tools and learn them at your own pace07:10
mattgyverbobstro, yeah within the next 3 years, whatever that means07:10
Kartagishey07:10
mattgyvermaybe its 5, i dont remember the exact quote07:10
Arsiclike one at a time or something07:10
mamece2is there picasa for ubuntu?07:10
Cerebr0yea BT4 has way more tools than anyone would ever use, imo07:10
Kartagisdoes mencoder support transcoding to mp4/ev-s *and* embedding subtitles?07:11
bobstromamece2:  yes07:11
RudyValenciaHow do I open 7z files in Ubuntu?07:11
cancuengtdr0id: give "$ sudo touch /forcefsck" and then reboot to check if the filesystem is ok07:11
bobstromamece2:  not well integrated, but it works like windows07:11
blakkheimRudyValencia: aptitude -y install p7zip-full07:11
Cerebr0Rudy download it in software center07:11
RudyValenciaah07:11
dr0idcancuengt: whats "$ " for ?07:11
bobstromamece2:  the important thing to realize is that linux is linux. you can do just about anything with one as another.07:11
sunderwhat's the key combo to log out again?07:11
uwafflesasagebut tit has better cyqgwin07:11
mattgyversunder, it use to be crtl+alt+backspace, i dont know if it works anymore unless you enable it07:12
Cerebr0$ is like the : in dos07:12
cancuengtdr0id: $ is the terminal (konsole sign)07:12
RudyValenciathanks07:12
dr0idcancuengt: ohh, did it, nothing happened, what is it meant to do ?07:12
RudyValenciaI've also installed rar (I have a license for it)07:12
dr0idshall I reboot my system now ?07:12
mamece2the difference btw ubuntu  xubuntu and lubuntu are the graphic interface?07:13
mattgyvermamece2, yeah.07:13
sunderi need to log out only using tge keyboard, using phone for irc right now07:13
cloudfreeis there lubuntu?07:13
dr0idcancuengt: deleting still takes same time :(07:13
cancuengtdr0id: is the promt that tells you that you are ready to input a command. if is $ it tells you that you are an user with no root privileges (secure) if ist # tells that you are an user with root privileges (danterous)07:13
mattgyveroh i dont know if theres a lubuntu i missed the l ;|07:13
cancuengtmamece2: mostly07:13
blakkheimRudyValencia: what do you mean you have a license for it?07:13
mattgyvermamece2, did you mean kubuntu?07:13
Cerebr0there is lubuntu07:14
RudyValenciaI bought a license for WinRAR, and can use the Linux version as a registered usre07:14
dr0idcancuengt: see PM07:14
RudyValencia*user07:14
blakkheimoh..07:14
cancuengtmamece2: The repositories are the same but most information you find for ubuntu and the gnome interface07:14
Cerebr0there are free programs that will extract from rar for linux07:14
mamece2u see i did a partition of 20 gigs and the rest is windows. can i revert this? get windows into the lil partition and ubuntu in the main big one07:14
Cerebr0mamece what version of windows are you using07:15
mattgyvermamece2, it can be done but its not easy at all.07:15
RudyValenciaI can create rar archives with the rar creation program too07:15
Cerebr0I think you could use a program like partition magic or partition  wizard that will allow you to resize them07:15
blakkheimRudyValencia: it's better to use open source archive formats like 7zip or tar, though07:16
RudyValenciatrue07:16
mamece2i think theres Lubuntu too, not?07:16
mattgyvermamece2, yeah apparently i live in the dark and didnt know about it07:16
Cerebr0Mamece yes there is Lubuntu, light weight supposedly noever tried it07:16
geekuskhanif by l you are referring to lxde, then yes I guess07:16
MadCowzGamingHey guys, I have a little problem i can't seem to figure out. I am using the SwiftFox Web browser with Adobe Flash Player 10. When watching youtube videos i switch to full screen and my browser crashes immediately. Any ideas? Thanks!07:16
RudyValenciait was a one-time license charge07:16
Arsicthere's a rar tool in the software center for rars. you can also try peazip (http://peazip.sourceforge.net), pretty sure it supports 7z too.07:16
RudyValenciaso I want to get full use out of itr07:16
mamece2maybe this q is stupid but how can i go back in mozilla?07:17
RudyValenciait's okay I've got it all taken care of07:17
RudyValenciamamece2: alt-back arroe07:17

mamece2lubuntu is light ubuntu, but i think i meant kubuntu, u r rite07:17
mattgyvertheres like 200 freaking versions of ubuntu really...07:18
mamece2^07:18
mattgyverYou start getting into crazy ones like religion distros, education distros...07:18
mamece2i could make Ñubuntu, ubuntu in spanish07:18
Cerebr0anyways this is #Ubuntu Support Channel so keep questions to the topic07:18
lucentmattgyver: Lesbian/GNU parody of Debian....  wasn't that the big publicity one?07:18
mattgyverlucent, maybe, i never heard of it07:19
mamece2if i reinstall ubutun i can make the partition bigger without losing files or any config done here?07:20
cancuengtmamece2: I really want localized versions for installs without inet connection and because for lang packs it must be inet connection or another cd with the packages07:20
cancuengthow can I check for corruption on an  installed package?07:20
Arsicmamece2: boot from a livecd and resize the partition using gparted. you won't lose any files. be sure to unmount any related file systems if it's on the extended or primary partitions07:21
mattgyvermamece2, probably the closest you could come is to backing up /home for application configurations and maybe /etc but /etc you might not want to fully restore07:21
mattgyverOh yeah Arsic is spot on if your not using the full disk07:22
lucentcancuengt: not answering your question exactly, but there's a way to reinstall it, is that helpful?07:22
Cerebr0Mamece yea don't install again, just boot into live cd and use Gparted07:22
mamece2mattgiver, arsic way to do it will work?07:22
Arsicwell if you use the live cd, you won't have to reinstall or backup any files07:23
mamece2so first i backup and delete everythingin windows to free space and then livecd and gpart the disk07:23
mattgyvermamece2, it will work willing that 1) Your Ubuntu Partition is behind your Windows Partitoin, 2) You have space left next to your Ubuntu partition07:24
cancuengtlucent: The problem is that I've recently checked my fs with fsck and founded a lot of troubles (and fixed). However i've founded also that later things has changed (eg. eth0 is not up by default on boot)07:24
mamece2mattgyver, the partition of windows and ubuntu are independent07:25
Cerebr0when ever resizing or messing with partitions it is always recommended to back up all important data07:26
kneauxhow do i connect to a reverse tunnel? currently computer A has a reverse tunnel with computer B, i need to connect to B, through A, with computer C07:26
DesmoThought I may as well ask here as it might be relevant, but has anyone had X/Ubuntu (xfce) playing silly games after install? No panel, no right click, no window functionality?07:26
DesmoIf I log in as root then itś A-OK, but logging in as root is bad, mmmḱay?07:26
mattgyvermamece2, correct you just need to be sure that your partition table is not |Ubuntu | Windows | Free Space.07:27

jg47hmif the computer stacks how to make it work again (something like ctrl+alt+del)07:27
lucentcancuengt: the common sense approach to this is backups and reinstallation of the OS, to be blunt07:27
mamece2no, it is windows ubuntu07:27
Cerebr0Remastersys Backup might be worth looking into07:28
Cerebr0Mamece2 you installed in windows? Wubi?07:28
jg47hm if the computer stacks how to make it work again ?(something like ctrl+alt+del)?07:28
Arsicjg47hm: crtl+alt+t to open a terminal then use top or ps aux to kill the offending process07:28

Cerebr0i don't plan on upgrading from 10.04, after all it is supported for 3 years where as the 10.10 will only be supported for 18 months07:31
mamece2cerebr0 no, no wubi, i run the livecd from a pendrive and then installed07:31
Cerebr0Mamece but is it on its own partition or did you install under windows option?07:32
mamece2cerebr0 its under its own partition, i choose the option to make its own partition in the free space available07:32
mattgyvermamece2, you still have free space at the end of your drive?07:33

mattgyverjg47hm, if all else fails you can try to swtich to another tty with Crtl+alt+f2 (f3/f4/f5) and issue a; sudo shutdown -r now07:35
Arsicjg47hm: it's supposed to open a terminal, but if it's completely locked up you might be SOL. you can also try switching ttys with ctrl+alt+f2 (or any of the f keys)07:35
Cerebr0¿Hablas español?07:35
Arsicbah07:35
_Magick3How do I set the monitor settings per user? 10.0407:36
lucent_Magick3: I don't think you do.07:36
lucentthere's a Display Settings panel applet I use07:36
frybyegazhang - at the start of a line you must do a   /j #ubuntu-cn   ok?07:36
lucentit seems to forget between users or remembers when I don't want it to07:36
_Magick3I need to. There must be some per user settings for X.07:37
lucentIt's not X anymore though because the configuration is done via API mechanisms07:37
lucenti.e. you don't stuff X11 config files these days in Ubuntu, that I am aware of anyhow07:37
_Magick3I know that I can change settings with xorg.conf07:37
_Magick3what is the API settings file called?07:38
lucentclassic.07:38
lucent_Magick3: what I am referring to is the complete lack of a settings file07:38
lucentit's all done with auto-configuration kung-fu07:38
_Magick3That is rather a stupid way to do it, as it does not work on my setup.07:39
ectospasmlucent: xorg.conf still works, it's still X07:39
ectospasmIt's just that the file doesn't exist by default.07:39
_Magick3xorg has no per user way of setting its setting?07:39
_Magick3or is there a per users file for xorg that I can make?07:40
Arsic_Magick3: I think some X settings used to be in ~/.xprofile. not sure it that was pre 9.10 or if it needs to be created07:40
lucenthey that sounds promising Arsic07:40
Arsichttps://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Config/Resolution07:40
_Magick3I will give it a try.07:41
jg47hmwhat it means by  "switching ttys"07:41
mattgyverjg47hm, to switch your virtual terminal07:42
jg47hmand what virtual terminal means?07:42
Cerebr0ttys? talk to you soon?07:42
lucentTTY means your ... pretend there's say 8 number of screens you can look at from a computer, but it only has one actual physical display07:42
lucentso you have a mechanism to switch between which one you're looking at07:43
xbonesxcan someone help me fix the purple boat loader screen please?07:43
lucentThe pretty windows And Things (TM) point and click takes up one of those TTYs07:43
lucentthere's probably more, and when you switch to those, you can see what is on them (usually a bunch of text from some program like a login shell or kernel log output)07:44
HallajHi all07:44
Arsicxbonesx, you're asking about the plymouth logo screen? what's wrong with it?07:44
HallajIf I've set a cron.daily job but my computer is powered off and turned on right after the cron.daily's time, the cronjob wouldn't get performed right?07:45
vaibhav1How to add image on left side of notification from our code? am using libnotify.07:45
xbonesxArsic: well its not showing correct, the only way i can explain it is, you know when you cross your eyes while looking at one thing, it creates two of them, well its doing that plus its all pixilated07:45
Cerebr0Xbonesx you tried that link I gave you?07:46
xbonesxCerebr0: ya and had no luck...07:46
Cerebr0what did you set the resolution to?07:47
cancuengthas someone used readed or heard about debsums?07:47
xbonesxCerebr0: but i have also installed startupmanager and gnomesplash screen manager too, which i have uninstalled but i dont know if those changed anything...07:47
Arsicit does sound like a resolution problem07:47
HansGruberI am so glad Ubuntu is Deblian based, .deb files are much better organized and easy to install than RPM's were for the longest time07:47
xbonesxCerebr0: tried native tried one underneath it, tried all the available ones pretty much07:47
Cerebr0i know on this computer it is 1280x800 but i have problems if i set it that high I had to set it to 1024x768 for some reason07:48
Arsicxbonesx: I've messed with the resolution of my plymouth logo before, here's a link to how I changed it. (http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Fix-the-Big-and-Ugly-Plymouth-Logo-in-Ubuntu-10-04-140810.shtml) maybe if you set it to your monitor's native resolution or lower, it might help07:49
xbonesxCerebr0: i also have a 64bit system, make any difference?07:49
lucentHallaj: correct, only jobs which are scheduled during operation are executed, at least with cron daemons I know about07:49
lucentxbonesx: hope you've patched up07:49
xbonesxArsic: same link Cerebr0 gave me lol07:49
Arsicdamn07:49
lucentsecurity holes abound for 64-bit Linux07:49
Hallajlucent: Thanks for your answer, so far there's no way to counter this right?07:49
Cerebr0Your problems may have been caused by the start up manager or boot manager, they may have changed some settings07:49
lucentHallaj: it's not exactly a problem though07:50
xbonesxCerebr0: thats what i was thinking but i dont know how to reverse anything they might have done...07:50
lucentHallaj: what you're talking about is not the purpose of most cron daemons07:50
xbonesxCerebr0: i thought about searching for where anyfiles may have been layed and deleting or modifing leftover files07:50
xbonesxCerebr0: i really would hate to have to reinstall cuz of something simple like this lol07:51
Hallajlucent: Well, eg: logrotate wouldn't work properly if the cron doesn't kick in right?07:51
Cerebr0are you sure you followed the direction on the link exactly? I would recommend tryign it again and setting the resolution to 1024x768 the two places it asks you to do so07:52
xbonesxbut its dumb and now it looks really crappy, as before it just was pixilated and i could still make out the picture07:52

HallajOh yeah, is there a way to lower the limit of timeout for ESTABLISHED connections?07:52

xbonesxCerebr0: also i have a 1920x1200 res hi-def screen07:52
xbonesxArsic: grub2 ???07:52
xbonesxi thought i had grub, cuz in that link you gave me had just "grub" commands in it...07:53
Arsicxbonesx: grub2 should be the bootloader. it should also set everything you've changed back to default07:53
xbonesxincuding stuff to do with plymouth??? cuz my bootmenu for choosing OS's works fine07:53
xbonesxits that stupid pruple screen07:53
Cerebr0thats the problem he may have changed some setting with start up manager and or boot up manager07:54
xbonesxthought plymouth and grub were two different things07:54
xbonesxCerebr0: i think thats the case as well07:54
Cerebr0i wonder if there is a command to reset everything to default?07:54
xbonesxCerebr0: i think im goign to reinstall them and find the file locations for them and check to see what might have been changed... what do you think?07:55
xbonesxCerebr0: referring to the startupmanager and gnome splash manager07:55
Cerebr0worth a shot, let me know what you find07:55
Arsicyeah, pretty sure. not sure if it's part of grub (i could be wrong), but it fixed my boot screen after installing burg07:55
icarus-c xbonesx plymouth has nothing to do with grub07:55
xbonesxicarus-c: didnt think so then why is everyone trying to get me to do changes to the grub??? lol07:56
xbonesxmy grub menu for switching OS's works fine07:56
icarus-cxbonesx, what they tell you to07:56
xbonesxicarus-c: its the purple loading screen thats buggy07:56

icarus-cArsic, KMS does that07:57
mamatreeHi, I'm having trouble with mpd "can't connect on localhost" ... it's possibly a complication with pulse audio?  is this a known 10.04 bug?  it's driving me crazy07:57

xbonesxicarus-c: i have the nvidia driver for my 8600m gt card installed07:57
icarus-cxbonesx, maybe "quiet splash" ? and remove existing "vga=" option07:58
dugger5688_aSt3raL: not OOTB, but you can install any number. Including various web interfaces.07:58
xbonesxicarus-c: ya i did notice that those were included in the setup for the menu.list07:58
aSt3raLdugger5688, ok thanks07:58
xbonesxicarus-c: where is that file located btw?07:58
icarus-cxbonesx, that's all has to do with grub somehow (although they are just kernel options)07:59
icarus-cxbonesx, read this http://www.ubuntugeek.com/quick-tipplymouth-themes-in-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx.html07:59
xbonesxicarus-c: i had win7 installed before ubuntu so the boatloader went to the win7 os right?07:59
icarus-cxbonesx, did you install plymouth theme with apt-get ?07:59
xbonesxno same thats default07:59
icarus-cxbonesx, if you installed windows before ubuntu, and you told ubuntu to install grub, it wouldn't go straight to windows loader08:00
xbonesxicarus-c: no but where would the menu.lst file be?08:01
xbonesxicarus-c: for the boot parameters?08:01

preecheri kno i probly shouldnt have done but i dloaded the 10.10 beta--now my sound isnt right-when i go to a youtube my sound kinda like hangs and drags if that makes any sense-only thing i know is it says pulse audio---is they any way i can use the old sound whatever it was without havn to reformat and reinstall?08:03
xbonesxbrb08:03
Rishabhello world...08:03
ArsicChiggins: I just boot into live cd, open a terminal sudo -i, then mount /dev/sda5 /mnt (where sda5 contains the location of \boot or your ubuntu install), then grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda (note: not to be confused with /dev/sda5), then sudo update-grub08:03

thune3makulkar: this sounds like a tricky enough situation to either consider running ubuntu in a VM or installing to a 2nd drive (being careful to put grub on the SECOND drive, using bios to select boot drive).08:15
makulkarthune3, you mean external USB drive?08:16
thune3makulkar: either a 2nd internal drive or external. sounds like point-sec needs to have something in the MBR, so any solution should probably NOT touch the MBR of the primary drive.08:17
makulkarthune3, true, no slot for another internal drive so sounds to me external :(08:17
thune3makulkar: there may be a way to do it on a single drive, but that would be advanced.08:17
makulkarthune3, thanks for your help!08:17
=== oumm is now known as owen
makulkarthune3, ok. Do you know if I can install VM which can use 64 bit machine capabilities?08:18
thune3makulkar: be very very very careful if you install to external drive to make sure the MBR goes to the external drive (this is NOT the default on 10.04, but 10.04.1 has default in the right place but check anyway)08:19
thune3makulkar: i've never set up ubuntu in a VM, i assume 64-bit ubuntu on 64-bit windows is doable. Someone else here may have better info.08:20

makulkariceroot, can you point me to unofficial image only? :)08:37
_rubenetheretic: buy faster disks08:37
icerootmakulkar: no sorry i dont know if there are images, so i would be using google only08:37
_rubendownloading a vmware image would probably take longer than downloading the install cd and run the installation :p08:38
icerootmakulkar: why not using the normal cd and create an image by our own? must faster then searching for an image + downloading it08:38
dhruvasagarHey, can I install a 32 bit binary on my 64 bit ubuntu by any means ?08:38

dhruvasagariceroot: just installing it ? often i've seen when I try to install a deb meant for 32 bit it says that the deb is for a different architecture and doesn't allow me08:40
lucenthey speaking of, I am curious does everyone enjoy tap-to-click feature on trackpad / laptop installs?08:40
dhruvasagariceroot: guitar pro 6 is available for ubuntu, but afaik its only for 32 bit, so I was thinking if I should buy or not...08:41

makulkariceroot, im not sure whre what you mean by creating one with CD08:41
dhruvasagarmakulkar: afaik you can use an 'iso' image08:41
lucentdhruvasagar: with my setup the tap-to-click setting was on by default, I toggled it to disabled with the System | Preferences | Mouse08:41
icerootmakulkar: download the ubuntu-cd start it with vmware and create an ubuntu vmware-image08:41
lucentand then on the Trackpad tab or something like this08:42

etheretic_ruben: running iotop, get error CONFIG_TASK_DELAY_ACCT not enabled in kernel, cannot determine SWAPIN and IO %08:43
dhruvasagaranyone on the guitar pro 6 thing ?08:43
dhruvasagarI already use tux guitar and its quite good, but guitar pro 6 is really a lot better ...08:43
lucentdhruvasagar: my settings are okay, except there is a bigger problem for me.  I don't understand how could I turn on/off tap-to-click in GDM login screen before I am logged into my session?08:44
_rubenetheretic: smart doesnt care about usb afaik, and i hardly ever (if ever at all) use iotop, usualyy just stick to iostat08:44

lucentantIP: patched for whom?08:49
macodhruvasagar: there was a trojan posted to gnome-look.org some months back, so if you consider "the user trusted something they shouldnt have and manually installed it"... then yes, there is malware for linux based systems08:49

dhruvasagarmaco: he actually mentioned vim-tiny08:52
etheretic_ruben: avg cpu iowait is horrendous - oscillating between 20-80%.08:52
macodhruvasagar: which is just vim without any of the good features :P08:52
dhruvasagarmaco: i think ubottu didn't really describe vim-tiny08:53
lucentetheretic: any chance it's btrfs?08:53
dhruvasagarweird08:53
dhruvasagarSyria: how is vim-tiny a malware ?08:53
macodhruvasagar: yeah it did...it gave the short description from the package08:53
lucentjust remember a blurb about btrfs being regression in performance due to corner case08:53
_rubenetheretic: in my experience that'd be related to broken disk and/or broken controller, or when "lucky": too much IO for the disk to be able to handle08:53
ethereticlucent: ext3.08:53
Syriadhruvasagar: I am asking the guy who told me this, one second please.08:53
icerootdhruvasagar: vim-tiny is not a malware of course08:54
dhruvasagarokok08:54

_joeyis there minimal iso netinstall?08:58
macoSyria: *puts on ubuntu developer hat* we check the stuff that goes into the repositories, so if its in the repos, you can generally trust its not out-and-out malware, and isn't doing anything too stupid (though code-auditing skills vary from dev to dev). when you get things from random places on the internet, however, you are taking a risk by installing them *takes off developer hat*08:58
maco!mini | _joey08:58
iceroot_joey: yes08:58
ubottu_joey: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD08:59

lucentetheretic: I had some wild problems with Transmission BT and large (hundred gigabyte) torrent transfers09:02

ubottuetheretic: 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?09:19
bullgard4thune3: I am reading the articles which you suggested.09:19

freshpeti am curious. what character can't be held by utf-8?09:21
glebihanetheretic: the point is not that it was your first question, but that you should ask a precise question rather than just asking if someone is using something09:21
ethereticglebihan: what is the diff? a simple "yes" or "no", preferrably why, shuld suffice. Just want to ensure i'm not wasting a bundle on a blu-ray burner i can't use.09:23

bobthemilkmanIs there any way to "undelete" a file in reiserfs?09:24
Syriamaco: What should i do after installing tripwire please?09:24
thune3bullgard4: that might be a part of freezing-subsystem specific to cgroups, there is also Documentation/power/freezing-of-tasks.txt09:24
macoSyria: i think you leave it alone til it tells you "omg something changed!!!" and then you go figure out whether that thing that changed was a bad thing or a you-installed-updates thing09:25
blakkheimwhen i SSH in, i see the MOTD, but when i SFTP in, i don't - is there a way to show motd to sftp users too?09:25
glebihanetheretic: those are just general rules on how to ask questions in order to get useful answers, asking "is it possible to...", rather that "does anybody..." will generally help you get an answer09:25
ActionParsnipetheretic: a HDD to backup to will be alot more reliable and cheaper imho09:25

lorenzocabrinisurely I, not ubuntu, should decide which groups i am a part of.09:40
lucentin Gnome it'd be called System Monitor09:40
ActionParsnipxbonesx: there is no x32 afaik, 32bit in windows is 24 in linux09:41
lucentadv_: 'gnome-system-monitor'09:41
adv_lucent, but for startup. which daemons should be run on startup09:41
lucentlorenzocabrini: hush, try adduser 'username' 'group'09:41
lucentreboot, see if that worked09:41
lucentif it did not work, then we have a problem09:41
ActionParsnipxbonesx: just add it as a boot option in /etc/default/grub   you'll need the extra packages defined in that guide09:42
lorenzocabrinilucent: adduser adds a new user, i have a user already09:42
lucentlorenzocabrini: it alternately adds a user to a group09:42
baseemI do not know if I said the ubuntu I run is desktop not server09:42
lucentlorenzocabrini: manual page says so09:42
lorenzocabrinilucent: but i am a member of the group already, i want to make it permanent09:43
* lucent facepalms09:43
xbonesxActionParsnip: I did that in the file but it still doesnt show at 1920x1200, think it maxes at 1600x1200, but i also have already installed and uninstalled startupmanager that had a gui for setting to 1600x1200, so i think that think is overriding the res setting09:43
ActionParsnipbaseem: if you are talking about screen res, it is desktop09:43
baseemok09:43
xbonesxthink that thing*09:43
baseemnow how to open the xorg.conf file?09:43

ActionParsnipbaseem: gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf09:44
james333jamesjoin #debian09:44
lorenzocabriniahother thing though, ubuntu keeps creating ~/Scrivania (~/Desktop) for me. But I rmdir:ed it because I don't want it.09:44
xbonesxi dont know what files the startupmanager was editing when changing the res's of the grub? does anyone know09:44
lorenzocabriniis there a place i can configure it to stop with this behavior.09:44
xbonesxActionParsnip: what guide again?09:44
lorenzocabrinii already have my own scripts to make sure my home directory looks the way i want, don't need ubuntu to poke in.09:45
lucentxbonesx: grub config is generated from and uses /etc/default/grub09:45
lucentI think09:45
ActionParsnipxbonesx: http://idyllictux.wordpress.com/2010/04/26/lucidubuntu-10-04-high-resolution-plymouth-virtual-terminal-for-atinvidia-cards-with-proprietaryrestricted-driver/09:45
lucentafter that run 'update-grub'09:45
lucentyou can tag on extra kernel args that way09:45
maedoxlorenzocabrini: ~/Desktop is the folder where your desktop launchers reside. It will always be auto-created even if you don't have anything on the desktop.09:46
lorenzocabrinimaedox: that is silly, I don't need it.09:46
lorenzocabrinimaedox: i don't run any tool that draws icons on the root window09:47
xbonesxActionParsnip: yes i have followed that TUT, but like i said i think startupmanager files are overriding somewhere in the system...09:47
baseemok, now I copy/pasted the text (file) and deleted the keyboard and mouse sections, should I also remove the "WACOM" sections?09:47
maedoxlorenzocabrini: root? Are you logging in as root?09:47
lorenzocabrinino, i log in as myself.09:48
nunyaI made an ubuntu startup thumb drive using startup creator in 10.04, but I can't boot up a lie cd from it, just intall the whole os...09:48

xbonesxActionParsnip: do you know the progress of the theming for grub2?09:49

xbonesxActionParsnip: good point but its more about the eyecandy, not staring at the same lame screen all the time, a nice GUI makes everything better lmao09:53

ActionParsnipxbonesx: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_BAyAclZ9g09:56
baseemActionParsnip: also my monitor is Acer 713, should I change the name, and what other detailes?09:56
ActionParsnipxbonesx: its GRUB backwards, it's an alternate (and unofficial) boot loader09:57
maedoxRickardo1: In a production environment they should most probably not be readable by everyone.09:57
Rickardo1maedox: ok, But everywhere ppl say 644 but I think 600 is better?09:57
ActionParsnipbaseem: if you like, if you change the identifier you MUST change the identifier in the other sections too or it won't work. It's only aesthetic so I wouldn't worry too much09:57
xbonesxActionParsnip: ah, i was speaking of the actual themes for grub2, one sec i get a link09:57
baseemActionParsnip: when I tried to save the file it said "Could not find the file /etc/x11/xorg.conf"09:59
lorenzocabrinimaedox: sorry, but i don't have nautilus running so why should it insist on creating a Desktop directory?09:59
maedoxRickardo1: yes, 600 should be fine as long as the owner is the webserver-user.09:59
baseemActionParsnip:Please check that you typed the location correctly and try again.10:00
maedoxlorenzocabrini: I don't know.10:00
lorenzocabrinimaedox: ok, np.10:00
maedoxlorenzocabrini: It's not nautilus probably. I would guess gdm does all that.10:00
lorenzocabrinii'm fixing it with a [[ -d ~/Scrivania ]] && rmdir ~/Scrivania in ~/.zshrc10:00
lorenzocabrinimaedox: don't run gdm either. I startx when/if i need it.10:01
ActionParsnipbaseem: lucid doesn't come with one, when you populate the file it should then be saveable.10:01
maedoxlorenzocabrini: ok, then you will have to research it some more I guess.10:01
xbonesxActionParsnip: http://paste.ubuntu.com/501370/ <--- this is the contents of my grub.cfg10:01
lorenzocabrinimaedox: yes, but for the time being i did a bit of a workaround in ~/.zshrc10:02

hyphenexif I've done dd if=/dev/sdb of=/drivs bs=32768, that effectively means I'm creating a file and filling it with a heap of blank data right? I've screwed up hey (I'm trying to image a 32GB flash drive)?  Or have I just created a 32GB copy of the disk?11:16
MooshiMuushiActionParsnip, Kino takes some time to load a 720p video. Avidemux...trying it right now. Pitivi? Never heard :D11:17
Ichatto temporary fix it,  i chose to install   hardy on it (went just fine) -   so i wonder,     what will a dist-upgrade give me...         will i get the same problem  after the upgrade completes. ????11:17
Ichator should i  start from 10.4 with - these fixes?11:17
ActionParsnipIchat: press tab after typing that and it completes the nick and highlights the text11:18

Jigalcan someone help me with the problem on line 1 http://paste.ubuntu.com/501388/11:21
IchatActionParsnip:  -  it seems to me that, it has something to do with the default settings,  changed in 10.4  for better vga cards than mine ...  the 'fear'  i have with it, is that after upgrade i get the same,  'signal out of range'   error and have (virtually unbooteble system.11:21
hyphenexthune3: Thanks :)11:21
bobthemilkmanI recently did a data recovery on my /home partition, and would now like to search through the lost+found directory for an excel formatted file. Is there any easy (or difficult?) way to do this? google is being a bit tricky11:23
thune3hyphenex: of course mounting an image of a whole drive (as opposed to a partition image) requires some extra steps (i'd have to look it up). A partition image is easy to mount11:23

_joeyhow do I do this?11:24
hyphenexthune3: I'm trying to run 'TestDisk' on the image I think11:24
IchatActionParsnip:  -   but if upgrading to 10.4 also updates the  nvidia 173 driver (to the same version  + settings, to the  10.4 's  system,  ) than id probably be safe   and upgrade should go without errors .... right?11:24
bobthemilkman_joey: sudo apt-get install vmware gnome xemacs doesn't do it?11:24
erUSUL_joey: only a minimal gnome? or the full ubuntu desktop?11:24
bobthemilkmanI thought vmware was proprietary, so it might not be in the repos...11:24

tensorpudding_joey: The root account is locked, use sudo11:25
bobthemilkman_joey: Well, if I were you, I'd just reinstall with a normal installation.11:25
erUSUL!root | _joey11:25
ubottu_joey: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo11:25
bobthemilkmanIt'll be quicker to reinstall than get X working. IMO11:26
tensorpudding_joey: But installing Gnome over a minimal install mostly would negate the benefits of being minimal...11:26
lorenzocabrini_joey: sudo su and set the password with passwd fixes it11:26
_joeythat's another ridiculous way of doing things your own way11:26
ActionParsnipIchat: all i can say is try it, you could even plump for maverick too but its still beta11:26
bobthemilkman_joey: What tensorpudding said.11:26
_joeylorenzocabrini thanks11:26
thune3lorenzocabrini, _joey: setting root password is NOT recommended11:27
lorenzocabrinithune3: i have also set a root password. what could be wrong with it?11:27
lorenzocabriniI don't like sudo, don't use sudo.11:27
bobthemilkmanThere's no reason to set a root password when you can just do sudo -s.11:27
leyushi11:27
lorenzocabrini_joey: but if you still want to set a root password, my instructions work just fine.11:28

_joeythat's better11:28
leyuswhen my 1 year old son come11:28
thune3lorenzocabrini: ubuntu has a style, the style is sudo. it's like saying it is ok to install rpm packages, it is not in the manner and style of the system. run "sudo -i" to get a root shell when you need one. And please DON'T recommend setting a root password in #ubuntu11:28
bobthemilkmanThere's no reason to set a root password. Just do sudo -s.11:28
leyusand turn off power11:28
erUSUL!rootshell11:28
ubottuUsing !sudo with single commands is preferable in most circumstances. However, if you really need a root shell, use « sudo -i » (other variants of this commands are redundant and/or potentially dangerous)11:28

tensorpudding_joey: but there is a gnome metapackage I believe11:29
leyusthe same aboyt /sys on /root/sys11:29
tensorpudding_joey: it's called gnome, so 'sudo aptitude install gnome' should grab it11:30
leyus/proc on /root/proc11:30
tensorpudding_joey: it'll probably take a good while11:30
leyustarget dilesystem doesnt have /sbin/init11:30

lorenzocabrinimy the ubuntu community has become unfriendly. i user *wants* to set a root password. That may be his/her personal preference, and I'm told not to help that user. I've had it. i'm going back to slackware or debian, both of which have friendly communities. way to go to help a userbase, thune311:41
ActionParsnipkneaux: you will need to boot to root recovery mode to do this as you cannot use sudo to get write access to the file11:41
leyusActionParsnip: no but i install ubuntu from it before and everything went well11:42
leyusActionParsnip: so i assume iso is ok,11:42
ActionParsnipleyus: ok then when you see the stickman screen, press space and select "Check CD for defects"11:42

leyusits not cd its USB installer11:43
leyusActionParsnip: its not a cd its usb installer. shuld i do the same?11:43
erUSULlorenzocabrini: you and that user are free to set the root password. the helpers of this channel and ubuntu community are free to not support that kind of setup in this channel.11:43
jriblorenzocabrini: the point is that the vast majority of users that want a root password think they *need* one because they just haven't been informed about sudo.  So it's better to first inform about sudo and how setting a root password isn't necessary.  Then of course if the user understands these things and wants to ignore the information, it's their prerogative.  The best thing to do is just to use the11:43
jrib!root factoid which explains these things11:43

leyusActionParsnip: looks ok to me11:45
leyusActionParsnip: nothing suspicious in RAM testing11:45
ActionParsnipleyus: let a full test run, you may need boot options if a full scan passes: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions11:45
bobthemilkmanOkay, I got my data all recovered up.  Now thunderbird won't start. :(11:46
leyusActionParsnip: there is one problem, this computer doesnt have cd11:46
bobthemilkmanTyping "thunderbird" into a terminal produces no output and the progam then suddenly closes.  Doing watch -n 0.01 pgrep thunderbird shows 2 instances launch and then close a split second later.11:47
ActionParsnipleyus: doesn'y matter, its all a block device to the kernel11:47
leyusActionParsnip: so i have to use usb to everything11:47
kneauxActionParsnip, I never changed my hostname, but I'll check those two files in a second. It's my remote server, can I e.g. su to get write access?11:47
ActionParsnipkneaux: they must matc, or you'll get that error11:47
leyusActionParsnip: so what should i use to check disk for defects? becasue i dont see that option in my usb 10.04 installer11:48
ActionParsnipleyus: no, you dont have to check the CD for defects as USB does checking on transfer. You may need some boot options in the link I gave to make it nice11:48

shariqsome update is took for skype fixed it for skype ... but not for flashplayer11:51
ActionParsnipshariq: not sure then, you could flip it upside down so it works in flash I guess11:51
ActionParsnipkneaux: add those 2 lines to /etc/hosts11:51
jukleyusr: boot live session, go to disk utility, theres option check and repair filesystem11:51
shariqyep i did try that with Video4Linux software11:51
ActionParsnipkneaux: your OS can't resolve its own name to 127.0.0.1    those 2 lines will do it11:52

ActionParsnip!latest | _joey12:05
ubottu_joey: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are  only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.12:05
leyusActionParsnip: yes but its really old one, 4 years old, wuthout cd and anything else12:05
tensorpudding_joey: Most packages don't track the latest stable releases of the upstream software, as far as I am aware.12:05

mae_taepeople, how do i upgrade squid version 1.2.11 to version 1.3.7? if ever it is upgraded will it not overwrite the current configuration?12:18
maedoxmae_tae: normally upgrades will ask what to do with the config, but make a backup first to be sure.12:20
stuk_genhi all12:20
der-eremitxbonesx you can also use: hwinfo --gfxcard12:20
mae_taemaedox, ok so how will i upgrade it, will i just directly install the latest squid?12:20
xbonesx VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G84 [GeForce 8600M GT] (rev a1)12:21

der-eremitxbonesx what's your exact problem. i guess i just missed the start of it12:24
xbonesxjuk: http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Fix-the-Big-and-Ugly-Plymouth-Logo-in-Ubuntu-10-04-140810.shtml12:24
xbonesxjuk: but it doesnt work12:24
afancywhen it start xwindow, it stop there12:24
xbonesxder-eremit: refer to messages to juk12:25
oCeanstuk_gen: probably by editing /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules. There is where the eth0 (or eth1) is linked to a mac address12:25
maedoxafancy: ubottu is a bot. We need error messages or other details as to what you did before if stopped working. exact dates for latest package upgrade etc. There are a million ways a box can not boot.12:25

afancymaedox: I just did update a moment ago, not it propmts "Udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured"12:25
icarus-clol xbonesx you are doing this for the whole day :-o12:25
xbonesxsetup the right way12:25
xbonesxicarus-c: yep :p12:26
maedoxafancy: sounds bad. But I'm not sure.12:26
stuk_genoCean: ok i do it! now is correct but i cant ping the machine, there are some other to correct?12:26
afancymaedox: ctrl-alt-1 go into a prompt12:26
oCeanstuk_gen: you restarted the network?12:26
stuk_genoCean: yes i reboot the server12:26
icarus-cxbonesx, you should bother with grub and kernel parameters, since plymouth already working ( you see the purple dot animation screen)   all you want is just changing plymouth theme12:27
icarus-cxbonesx, i mean you shouldn't12:27
xbonesxicarus-c: id like to look at it though as im waiting for ubuntu to load12:27
oCeanstuk_gen: okay, then it's hard to tell why the server is not responding to ping. You're sure the interface eth0 is up?12:27
xbonesxicarus-c: plus the liveusb works just fine... ???12:28
BigWookiei've got a problem, my postfix seems to ignore the /etc/aliases file12:28
der-eremitstuk_gen additional to checking if the correct interface is up, you should also check if there's a default gateway bound to the interface12:29
maedoxafancy: ok, so it still works, but some X issues then. Someone should be able to help you. Maybe paste some log output to paste.ubuntu.com or pastebin.com.  /var/log/messages and /var/log/boot.log  perhaps. Also /var/log/apt/history.log might be of interest.12:29

stuk_genfrom another pc i can connect to the server via ssh but not ping...maybe there is some rules to the server that can disable ping?12:30

oCeanBigWookie: your alias_maps file in the postfix config is set to /etc/aliases?12:33
