bastid_raZormac9416: if you removed it, possibly 'ubuntu-desktop' may pull in the all the lost things..00:02
MikeWatersstbain - any free versions? Ubuntu One gives you 2Gb free for example00:02
ppqZelozelos, it's gecko-media-player00:02
mac9416bastid_raZor, roger that, good idea.00:02
jagsbut I'll check out pysdm and if that doesn't work I'll read up00:02
stbainMikeWaters, no free version that I'm aware of00:02
ppqZelozelos, sorry, it's gecko-mediaplayer.00:02

fcuk112i am trying to connect to irc.gnome.org through xchat-gnome, but it's not in the server list and i do not see any option to add a new server, any idea?00:03
macofcuk112: is gimpnet an option? cuz its the same thing00:03
MikeWatersThere is always the "email it all to yourself" option! We used to do that with VAX/VMS :-D00:03
Ken8521fcuk112, click Add on the Network list, give it a generic name.. then click Edit, and set up the server00:03
ppqfcuk112, first: use a better irc client. xchat-gnome isn't as good as xchat00:04
macofcuk112: also, here's how to add them http://www.linuxchix.org/connecting-linuxchix-irc-using-xchat.html00:04
macofcuk112: oh wait sorry my link is for normal xchat :-/00:04
acleehello im a newbie to ubuntu having problems00:04
Ken8521xchat-gnome isn't that bad... it's not as good as xchat, but it's not that bad00:04
fcuk112maco, thanks gimpnet is an option, i'll try that.00:05
MikeWatersfcuk112 I ended up using Pidgin after a LOT of grief!00:05
macoKen8521: i actually prefered -gnome over normal xchat. easier config screen IMO00:05
sunny1Anyway what to remove all the user left the room msgs in pidgin?00:05
Ken8521maco, xchat is just as easy when you get the hang of it. but yea.. i used xchat-gnome for several years, over xchat, for the same reason.. and i still can't warm up to irssi00:06
acleeis there a chat client that supports webcam and voice that goes through aim and yahoo.....and i need step by step instructions on how to download it00:06
MikeWatersI am a Pidgin beginner - sorry :P00:06
MikeWatersJust works the best of any I have tried00:07
DroneWorkHas anyone gotten Mozy to work with Ubuntu?00:07
Ken8521aclee, is gyachi still around, for Yahoo?.. i'm not sure bout AIM00:07
acleecan i use my webcam with pidgin00:07
yabukI need a "id3 tag demuxer" to play a mp3 file, where do I find it?00:07
Ken8521i thought webcam/voice was one of the reasons for dumping Pidgin and going w/ Empathy?00:08
sunny1MikeWaters: I'm using pidgin as well, love it, except for all the damn left the room msgs00:08
Ken8521sunny1, pidgin is a great IM client... but it sucks as an IRC client....00:08
Ken8521to many good irc clients int he repositories to spend time getting frustrated by that00:09
nuestraIt took a bit of searching, but I got irssi working with ssl via the instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1010780&page=200:09
lazyPowersunny1, its a plugin.00:09
MikeWatersSure better than the ones I se 10+ years ago though LOL00:09
Ken8521MikeWaters, that's up for debate.00:09
lazyPowersunny1, if you havent already, install the useful pidgin plugins package from the software center00:09

dhruvasagarHi, can anybody tell me how to save the video captured by xvidcap !?00:16
enavhi fellas... i got 2 displays connected to a single nvidia video card... but my motherboard have an integrated ATI video card....   y successfully can use  the 3 displays same time under windows... but the ATI card don't want to work under linux00:17
enavdhruvasagar: just find a youtube videotutorial those are nice00:18
dhruvasagarenav: hmmm ok00:18
dhruvasagarenav: regarding your prob, have you installed the proprietary ATI drivers?00:18
RockerBoy402on my broadcom card i keep having to do rmmod b43 and modprobe b43 in order to get my wireless to start. When the computer boots up it works fine, but if I ever have the screen saver come on, or the computer goes idle, i have to do that to re-enable my wireless card.  this gets annoying because i can't let stuff download on my pc unattended!00:18
RockerBoy402any ideas?00:18
enavdhruvasagar: nop00:18
enavi mean yes00:19
dhruvasagarenav: hmm !? how do you mean 'yes' when saying 'no'?00:19

dwarderenav: all this active writing to ntfs from linux?00:26
tonsofpcsenav: no, not really.  The file system that you store your virtual filesystem on matters a great deal for performance.00:26
tonsofpcsdwarder: you aren't writing to NTFS from linux.00:26
dwardertonsofpcs: ?00:26
enavdwarder: virtual box is provide you a way to test systems and OSs.... just create your machine worry free00:26

bsmith093i have an mkv file that im converting to an mp4 with handbrake. it has multiple audio tracks which apparently handbrake can preserve. my question is, how do i burn the mp4 file ( with multiple audio tracks) to a dvd00:27

enavtest  use..  whatever you want bro... y got 2 web servers running on VB  very nice00:28
enavdwarder: tell me what do you want to do?00:28
dwarderenav: i worry that their hdd be located at ntfs partition00:28
tonsofpcsdwarder: no, you don't.  Linux writes to ext# or whatever you tell it to.  Virtualbox writes that data to a file that resides on an NTFS partition.00:29
enavyou are tallking about real disk or the fake ones???00:29
dwarderenav: i have real ntfs partition available to my host linux, and i want to put virtual hdd on it00:29
enavdwarder: NTFS is not bad, just avoid use FAT32 as base disk....00:31
dwarderenav: no perfomanse issues00:31
enavdwarder: maybe NTFS and EXT4 work good but  the problem with FAT32 is that format is error prone00:32
hdgcdhruvasagar: other procces arent usin video00:32
dwarderenav: no fat32 in my situation00:32
dhruvasagarhdgc: but the error you're getting indicates that...00:32

brummbaerellis, it'll turn the dvd into a magic ball of light if you ask it too. it's very capable01:15
Elliswow magic balls of light are just a little to unpredictible to have in my brand new house but think you for the recommendation last question is do i just install and run or does it require additional setup?01:17
brummbaerellis, it's available in the Ubuntu Software Center, and there's documentation here: http://trac.handbrake.fr/wiki/HandBrakeGuide01:17
brummbaerellis, it's an easy setup01:17
brummbaeryou may want to look at preferences before ripping to make sure destination format is what you want01:17

Ellisand also how do i direct a comment toward you?01:28
brummbaerellis, you're right, i apologize for the misinformation. it's not in there, i'm looking for the repo you need01:28
brummbaerellis, just mention my nick in your response01:28
Ellisok thanx01:28
Ellisbrummbaer ok gotcha01:28
Jorjonso how can i install a *.so file?01:29
bushbabyEllis, brummbaer, 0.9.4 is no longer available due to compatibility issues with the newer version of gnome. is of the official website so it seems handbrake is off ubuntu for now. you can still get nightlys though01:29
Ellisbrummbaer ive only been using ubuntu for about three days but im used to the concept from having a jailbroken iphone01:29
brummbaerthanks bushbaby. you think it's ok to install from the handbrake-ubuntu ppa?01:29
FirefisheWhat is the command line syntax that will let me run fsck at the next bootup?01:29
Braber01_Ahh thank god! an IRC freenode chat via a web browser :)01:29
bushbabybrummbaer, could be. I haven't personally. It's up to personal preference i guess..01:30
Ellisbrummbaer whats the next best to use?01:30

posciakJorjon: put the file into the proper plugins directory of your browser01:31
brummbaerellis, dvdrip will do the trick though the UI may not be as sexy as handbrake01:31
abstraktJorjon, you don't really "install" so files01:31
Braber01_guys I just switched from the Login GUI to the Login Shell, now every time i run the command startx I get a popup box saying that my key ring has  not been activated on login01:31
abstraktJorjon, what you do with it to achieve what you want may be highly dependent on what you want01:31
Ellisbrummbaer ok ill try it and thanx again01:31
hdgcJorjon: sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/firefox-addons/plugins01:32
brummbaerellis, yeah, good luck. please let me know if you have other questions01:32
hdgcand sudo cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins01:32
hdgcJorjon: restar firefox..01:32
abstraktthat seems like a... questionable, method of installing flash to me01:32
brummbaerjorjon, i put libflashplayer.so into ~/mozilla/plugins/ and it works fine01:32
abstraktbrummbaer, maybe you meant ~/.mozilla/plugins01:33
brummbaerabstrakt, it sounds like he's going for the new adobe square flash, which is native 64 bit01:33
brummbaerabstrakt, good catch ;)01:33

kuttumiahhello everybody, i am new here. how can i may join?01:33
macokuttumiah: its a tech support channel. if youve got a question, ask it. if youve got an answer to an asked question, give i01:34
Braber01_After I switched form the GUI login to the Login SHELL when i run `startx` i get a popup box prompting me to enter my password to actvate my keyring any ideas on how I can fix that?01:34
Ellisbrummbaer thanks ive got it installing now hopefully it meets my needs01:34
macoBraber01_: you can set the keyring password to an empty string, which will mean your saved passwords are not encypted01:34
macoBraber01_: gdm unlocks the keyring during login if the keyring and login password match, in the default setup01:35
EllisBrummbaer ok now im getting a lil irritated. it wont let me install it because it says it requires untrusted software. there is no option to download anyway01:35
nuestrai installed gnome-splashscreen-manager, but it crashes & says: /usr/lib/ruby/1.8/gnome-splashscreen-manager/splash_screens.rb:192:in `last_write': Unrecognized image file format01:36
Braber01_how would I go about doing that? I have no clue and my aunt has no clue about Ubuntu or Linux01:36
brummbaerellis, will you try arista? sorry to keep referring diff software, but arista looks a bit more modern than dvdrip01:36
Ellisbrummbaer ok ill try this one01:36
macoBraber01_: applications -> accessories -> passwords & encryption keys (or something like that...has keys for the icon)01:36
kuttumiahhey maco thanks for your complement.01:36
macoBraber01_: change the password on the login keyring01:37

zegoanyone know of a good *terminal* (headless server) dc++ client?01:37
nuestraah, thanks01:38
Braber01_Thank you maco, however I've loged in, with the login shell so I don't understand why the keyring is unlocking when I use the shell to login01:38
macoBraber01_:  some application is requesting that it be unlocked, possibly the network manager01:38
macoBraber01_: it would be /automatically/ unlocked (without you typing a password) if you used gdm. because you got rid of gui login, you need to manually unlock it by entering the password...unless you set a blank password01:39
Ellisbrummbaer ok same thing refusing due to untrusted software thanks for all your help but screw it im sick of dealing with it tonight ill just buy another laptop for that purpose alone01:39
Braber01_okay thank you now I understand :)01:39

Stavrosbattery indicator, anyone?01:55
maco`AmR: then "sudo apt-get update"01:55
zegoaaroninfidel: well, that's not to bad then.  You can have each apache virtualhost listen on a specific IP (or multiple virtualhosts on an ip) and then just firewall off the intranet site and setup a proxy or any other number of ways to secure the internal stuff01:55
Braber01_um where can I find more information on ubottu and it's commands?01:55
bushbabyStavros: The Default setting are for the indicator to come up only when charging or discharging, this can be altered under General in System->Preferences->Power Options.01:56
aaroninfidelzego: and that all sounds well and good, but I have no idea how to do most of that.01:56
zegoaaroninfidel:  as for doing the public sites, in addition to listening on an IP, you can do Named Virtual Hosts01:56
Stavrosbushbaby: it's discharging01:56
Stavrosbushbaby: oh, ubuntu isn't detecting this01:56
zegoaaroninfidel:  it should just be <VirtualHost> for a site configuration on a given IP and port01:56
aaroninfidelzego: nor do I know too much about networking in general, I've only taught myself how to code.01:56

aaroninfidelzego: yeah, I've set that much up so far.01:57

aaroninfidelthe firewalls & proxys are what went over my head.01:57
zegoaaroninfidel: sorry, that's just one option.  Essentially you can secure the intranet site either with just Apache security, or something like requiring a proxy01:57
bushbabyStavros: has it worked before?01:58
zegoaaroninfidel: the former should really be fine, but it depends on your security needs01:58

Stavrosi purged postgres from my system and now i can't reinstall it, does anyone know what i can delete to purge everything?01:59
bushbabyStavros: could be a dodgy connection with the battery or general wear and tear. how old is the battery?01:59
zegoaaroninfidel: proxies and firewalls are the nutjob way I do things since I was bored01:59
Stavrosbushbaby: a year or so01:59
zegoaaroninfidel: anyways, for multiple domains you are looking at named virtual hosts http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/vhosts/name-based.html01:59
aaroninfidelzego: nothing really needs to be secure on an intranet, the content just needs to be separated via IP so one alias of the company doesn't look like they're part of another alias (even though they are)01:59
zegoaaroninfidel: so a separate virtualhost which may or may not have a login will be fine then02:00

bushbabyStavros: oh i see, apologies it's rather late here! I'm not sure what this could be, as i said could be the battery just generally wearing and the applet being unable to correctly read the data? I have an old dell that does the same, as for a fix i'm not sure..02:04

mamece2how can i execute it? i tried -ng02:34
sunny1mamece2: Make it executable02:34
mamece2doin a make?02:34
dwmyersmamec2: execute it by name. if you're in the directory and its name is "script", try './script' (no quotes)02:34
dwmyersmamec2: also, 'perl script' should work.02:35
mamece2letss try02:35

dmar198I'm trying to set up a printer wirelessly (bluetooth). I opened up "Bluetooth settings" on the printer and it asked me to input a BT PIN number. Any ideas?02:38
sunny1mamece2: Are you sure you're in the folder when trying to run it?02:38
dwmyersmamec2: and don't literally type script, type the name of your file.02:38
Izinucsdmar198: 0000 or 123402:38
dmar198Izinucs :: thanks. Now what do I do?02:39
mamece2sunny1 yes sir02:39
mamece2im right in the directory of the file02:39
Izinucsdmar198: uh.... check the bluetooth configuration options in ubuntu.. not really sure.. never setup a bluetooth printer.02:40
andrenvq57thanks sunny1.02:40
dwmyersmamec2: could try this: ./script --help02:40

mamece2"u need to install perl-doc package to use this program02:41
andrenvq57How do I paste files to /usr/lib/gedit-2/plugins/ ?02:41
LordDragonanyone know of a widget or panel addon that shows cpu temperatures for my intel motherboard/cpus?02:41
drrob1Am I actually being read here?02:41
wedwomamece2, is this a script for cracking wireless passwords?02:41
dmar198yes drrob1, you are being read02:41
Izinucsdmar198: typically the printer has to be "discovered" by the computer.. then they have to "pair" .. usually asking for a password or key like 0000 or 1234.. after that you have to get cups to recognize the connection as a printer.. might even have to install another bluetooth appelate just for printers.. for that look in synaptic package manager02:41
mamece2wedwo yes02:41
drrob1thanks.   I never knew.02:41
Braber01_yes you are I was trying something that a bod had but apperntly didn't work02:41
mamece2i have the same request as lordragon02:41
sunny1mamece2: Install the package then02:41
jsecdmar198: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BluetoothPrinterSetup02:41
dmar198thanks jsec02:41
Izinucsdmar198: when I say printer.. what I really mean is "bluetooth hardware"02:42
dmar198Izinucs :: sure02:42
tris2kanyone tried the stripes web framework?02:42
dmar198there must be some mechanism for turning on "discovery" mode on the printer02:42
dmar198but I see no hardware buttons02:42
mamece2why i can execute it clickin it and cannot open it from the konsole?02:42
Izinucsdmar198: might be a software toggle on the configuration of the printer.. from the printers buttons and display02:43

dmar198jsec or Izinucs :: the help page I was pointed to says, "If you don't see something like that than either your printer is not configured correctly or your Bluetooth adapter isn't recognized. Seek help for both problems in the Ubuntu Forums or the Ubuntu Users mailing list."02:44
Braber01_!thanks |mamece202:44
ubottumamece2: You're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)02:44
dmar198well, I'm seeking help from the IRC so I guess that counts02:44
jsecdmar198: yeah I looked at it... not a whole lot of helpful info there. I'd look at your printer's manual for how to toggleit.02:45
dmar198but the first step (scanning for hardware) didn't work02:45
dmar198great, that's common sense that I hadn't thought of02:45
Braber01_who coded the !ping command that is genius :)02:46

TokalI run a Minecraft server in a terminal window02:59
Braber01_!ask | Tokal02:59
Tokalbut when java receives messages it moves my cursor position02:59
ubottuTokal: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)02:59
TokalI run a Minecraft server in a terminal window. When Java receives messages it moves my cursor position making it hard to send the users messages. How I can have an IRC style shell where input remains on the bottom and output on top03:00
IdleOneTokal: sounds like a minecraft issue, might want to check their forums03:00
Braber01_um just putting this out there on another irc channel I went to every so often the bot they had would respond "if you show me yours I'll show you mine!" when ever somebody put "boobies" in a string03:01
tensorpuddingTokal: sounds like you should be backgrounding your server process03:01
tensorpuddingTokal: are you running it as a jarfile, or a script, or what?03:01

TokalI guess my request is a shell that separates the input from the output, similar to an IRC chat03:08

* Braber01_ Knows of a City named Maverick it's in Boston on the Blue Line on the "T" (Boston's Subway Rail System)03:16
IdleOnemplabs: the reason you have a bunch of depends issues is because of all the non default repos you have. upgrade automatically disables those repos03:16
mplabsdo you mean it will be ok if I uncomment some repos ?03:16
IdleOnemplabs: hmm, ok is hard to say but I suspect a lot of your packages depend on libs from those repos03:17
Mungyou'll probably have to track down the correct URI for them03:17
mplabsbut I thought the update manager wrote there the necessary to end the upgrade03:18
mplabsbut I have problems with things like openoffice03:18
mplabsso its strange03:18
Mungfor supported packages.03:18
IdleOneupdate manager will use only the official repos and disable the non ubuntu ones03:18

mplabsI guess openoffice is part of the official repo, is it ?03:19
IdleOnemplabs: yes03:19
mplabsfor example:03:19
mplabs libgnomecanvas2-0 depends on libgtk2.0-0 (>= 2.8.17); however:n  Package libgtk2.0-0 is not configured yet.03:19

The_Acethere's even a jaunty repo03:29
mplabsno, wait.. I was using karmic repos, then update-manager commented it all and put lucid repos instead03:30
The_Acemplabs, I see there are source repos as well. Did you compile applications as well ?03:31
mplabswell, I guess I did, but not so often03:31
mplabswhy ?03:31
The_AceAFAIK, if key components were compiled from source, they wont get upgraded with package managers03:31

phantom11141Hi all, using ubuntu 10.04 my N wireless shows the network but it will not connect.03:34

seidosis there a program teachers can use for grading?03:34
mplabsyes, I am or it is supposed to be lucid03:34
The_Acemplabs, first thing is to see if those 3rd party repos have repos for lucid03:35
The_Aceif they do, edit your source list to use the lucid repos03:35
The_Acethen run the update/upgrade03:35

aromanHey guys. So I'm a freshman in highschool in the market for a new laptop. I have no interest in running Windows, and would like to know if there are any certain laptops (that run windows out of the box or otherwise) that are known to have very good Ubuntu support? I'm unsure about buying a laptop because i want to run Linux/Ubuntu on it.. and I don't know which will work well or not. Thanks SO MUCH!03:44

Gneajust want to track down how it mounts /host automatically but can't find anything in /etc03:48
mplabsgreat, thank you all !03:48

Dulakaroman: in a desktop sure, but a laptop isn't exactly where you need to worry about the best performance, since it really won't compare to a desktop until you get into the high-end stuff.  Also newer means untried, I never buy the first new generation just because the second generation gets the bugs ironed out.  Re:  the new macbook had major issues with the case that didn't exist is subsequent models03:58

holocenePentium3, the same problem I had?04:59
The_AceMisterEx, id Gedit on the server is running, the X is getting forwarded04:59
hidekiI don't think you need root to read that file ? Do you ?04:59
MisterExhideki: It claims so yes.04:59
sinmanicarus-c: thanxs05:00
MisterExhideki: They probably have it locked down quite strongly, it's a remote SSH server for a university :P05:00
icarus-cMisterEx, didn't you said you  could  run gedit with  ssh -X ?05:00
MisterExYes I can05:00
MisterExIssue now is05:00
MisterExI have no idea what GUI packages are installed05:00
Pentium3holocene: yep, i would click something and it would only happen on the remote.  I lowered effects and resolution and it worked like a charm, but before I figured that out, I was stuck using SSH.05:00
Pentium3Still looking for drivers.05:00
icarus-cMisterEx, oh!  you could check out /usr/share/applications/05:01
icarus-cMisterEx, those *.desktop files are application launcher you see in Application Menu05:01
The_AceMisterEx, what packages do you want to run ?05:01
icarus-cCould you start a GNOME session  through ssh -X ? no ?05:01
MisterExicarus-c: for CentOS there is no app folder, it's all in /usr/share05:01
hidekiicarus-c: I use cat so I can easily change the search string without having to move the cursor all the way back05:01
mweltin_looking for some guidance.  My nvidia driver and kernel module don't have the same version number but so far my attempts to rectify this are not working.  running lucid if that matters.05:01
MisterExThe_Ace: Just poking around seeing what options I have05:01
MisterExicarus-c: infact.. there are no *.deskstop files :P05:02
icarus-chideki, i would use less and search within less in that case05:02
MisterExicarus-c: but a list of binaries is in /usr/share05:02

icarus-chideki, but yea. depends on the situation :P05:02

shatlyssh ->  screen -> irssi05:16
JavaAtomshatly: ssh -> tmux -> irssi = same damn thing.05:16

JavaAtomThe_Ace: That's what I'm trying to figure out.05:16
icarus-cMisterEx, any message when you start nautilus?05:17
hidekiMisterEx: Some programs won't work if they are already running locally on the server. This is the case with Firefox etc.05:18

Jon--Not sure of any way myself06:01
mrwizeguy1983molly9, how accurate do you need to be?  any of us could guess based on our update install history, but i don't know where to find accurate data06:02
molly9The other part is about when security patches fix some problems but cause others. I can't seem to find any recent examples. Maybe there are none lol.06:02
molly9you know, an educated guess is better than I can come up with wading through all of the bug fixes!06:02
rwwmolly9: you may find https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-security-announce/ useful for the first06:02
mrwizeguy1983if i had to guess, i'd say around 3 per day, but not regular, just quite a few sometimes and not many others.  not sure how accurate my guess is molly906:03

molly9Thanks! That first list has a good thread in it.06:05
Jon--molly9: security patches causing problems - must be ubuntu specific?06:05
bobstroredbeans:  the closest i can think of would be virtualized windows desktop, or server running terminal services. you won't save on windows licensing that way though.06:05
bobstroredbeans:  desktop as in winxp/win7 in a virtual machine, and rdp to that.06:05

tripelbblackdoggy, look at the link I posted above please. It clarifies the situation.06:43
soreautripelb: That is a problem with the proprietary nvidia drivers. You may have to manually specify a mode line in your xorg.conf06:43
tripelbDoes 10.04 use /etc/X11/xorg.conf  ?06:44
soreautripelb: Yes, if it is present06:44
soreautripelb: Which video card do you have now?06:44

tripelbsoreau thanks for talking to me. It wasnt present. I added what I was told (that had worked in the past when I did NOT have an nvidia card) - now the "screen" is only part of my monitor screen.06:45

tripelbsoreau, OK I'll explain. there's a rectangle on my screen that usually fills the screen. Now it doesnt. It's in the upper left corner and the rest is black. I had to chose default low graphics when I booted up, after I changed the /etc/X11/xorg.conf06:47

ibrahim-kasem1Hi, I have installed compiz using the software center, how can i start using it now? I can't find it.06:59
soreautripelb: And before doing that, I would remove xorg.conf and restart X06:59
soreauibrahim-kasem1: Compiz is already installed by default.. ccsm is not however..06:59
soreauibrahim-kasem1: Do you want to start compiz or edit it's settings?06:59
ibrahim-kasem1soreau: Yes. I want to start it.06:59
JoeCoolDeskSeriously, how do design decisions get made for Ubuntu?07:00
soreauibrahim-kasem1: See gnome-appearance-properties (sys>prefs>appearance) and set to anything other than None, should try to start compiz07:00
tripelbsoreau, I remember now. It searches for a driver and when I activate the driver something bad happens. I forgot what. shall I do that again.07:00
JoeCoolDeskWho the hell thinks it's a good idea to have a built in Twitter client and still have an interface from 2004?07:00

tripelbsoreau. there's a lot to do. I've copied your suggestions into a text file. Now I'll zero out the xorg.conf first.  THEN how do I restart X? Can I do it without rebooting?07:04

fratzbcevery time i ping a non existing domain (ea: abc.org) it replies with a abc.org.mydomain.ext07:04
fratzbcso every hostname/domain replies on my own domain07:05
soreautripelb: Sure. To restart X simply log out. But now that I think about it, as long as you 1) Remove the conf file 2) Install the driver with hardware drivers 3) Reboot. then it should work07:05
tripelbsoreau, OK. have removed conf. will activate driver. see you on the flip side.07:06

tripelbsoreau, Thanks. This looks good. It's not perfect but it's better than ever. What's not perfect? Well like before, there's a black area of the screen unused... actually 2 black areas, a 1/2" vertical band on either side of the screen. So effectively my screen is 18" instead of 10".  I'm good but I wanted to be complete.07:15
soreautripelb: Have you checked nvidia-settings to adjust the screens?07:15

tsukiyomiAnyone knows why does my monitor mode goes back to managed mode?08:05

james333jamesglebihan: it's gbackgfround a perl script that switch wallpapers within time08:06

glebihanjames333james: you could add it to the startup applications08:08
\DSAFEW\ahh I see your question now08:08
james333jamesbazhang: there was no way to install the last version from the ubuntu repos, and anyway the program works really fine, i just don't know how to set it on startup so that i don't have to start manually every boot08:08
tsukiyomiwhenever i set it up in about 3 or 4 sec it goes back to managed08:08
ubottuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok.

greppytwiztid: settings for your user?  or for the system?08:51
bullgard4Why is running on my Lucid computer the process »modem-manager« although I do not have a GSM, CDMA, or UMTS card?08:51
blakkheimbullgard4: because ubuntu comes with a lot of things you probably won't ever need08:52
cuddlefish_XObullgard4: It just runs whether you have one or not08:52
twiztidgreppy: everything, so that i dont have to set it up from scratch, basically like a snapshot of it right now, on a bootable/installable disk08:52
blakkheimor use at all08:52
twiztidgreppy: btw thx for ur reply08:52
cuddlefish_XOso if you get one, it'll work08:52
chutwiztid: Settings are mostly saved to your /home/<user> directory. For a list of packages installed you can either go through Synaptic or there's some terminal commands.08:52

konbonis there any way to force the resolution of a screen?08:53
konbonim on 800x600 and cant see much on it08:53
bullgard4blakkheim: I don't think that Ubuntu maintainers are that dumb.08:53
konboni need to click something and it out of the reach of the GUI08:53
berkeshow can I debug this best? Strace gives me no hints. Any logs for desktopcouch or evolution?08:53
konbondue to the resolution08:53
blakkheimbullgard4: it'd be better that i not offer my opinion there08:53
greppytwiztid: setting up the entire system could be a little rough.  basically back up your home directory, that will handle most of what you have on the desktop or saved configs for applications08:53
greppytwiztid: backing up /etc can save most of what you have there.08:54
bullgard4cuddlefish_XO: Why is there that waist of ressources?08:54
bullgard4cuddlefish_XO: Why is there that waste of ressources?08:54
greppytwiztid: why do you want to reinstall btw?08:54
blakkheimbullgard4: ubuntu is meant to run on a large range of hardware, including old legacy stuff, so they include support for lots of things08:54
greppymodem-manager could be used for bluetooth as well (I haven't checked, but it's a possibility)08:55
bullgard4blakkheim: I know that. Still, it an easy matter not to start a process that is not needed.08:55

chutwiztid: If you don't mind using a command line, the command "dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > $BCKP_PCKGLST" will export a list of currently installed packages (you might want to save sources.list [assuming you have modified it] and your /etc/fstab too), once you have done the re-install you can run the command "dpkg --set-selections < $BCKP_PCKGLST08:57

(MBR<--GRUB2)  MBR contained "earlier version of windows" [which is XP], and "Windows 7";;; to get there i had to select Windows 7 (loader)...   OK, then xp got a virus, so i activated the 7 partition and migrated the xp BOOT record to 7's partition and told 7 to allocate the free space xp left behind; so...09:02
twiztid...now i have a mess of chainlinked boot records that i want to just completely reinstall XP then 7, then Ubuntu... so its nice and clean but im just too lazy to re set up ubuntu from scratch and update it, and install all the little tweaks and settings etc...09:02

greppyniko-nojo: that will spit out the file with changing varchar for bar.09:04

fish_sticksJigal open pastie.org and paste your code and paste that link wherever09:05
greppyniko-nojo: can you put your example file up on pastebot?09:05
rwwkonbon: see the message right above that. alt-drag moves windows.09:05
chutwiztid: Alternatively, if you give me a few seconds I'll find out how to do it with Synaptic package manager so you won't need to use the command line.09:05
greppyniko-nojo: you are basically trying to replace varchar($somebumber) with something else, yes?09:05
konbonty :)09:05
cmykI just installed ubuntu as a vm for testing. wanted to install Acrobat reader 909:05
Jigalfish_sticks, cant do that working trhough a shell thats why i want to use pastebinit09:05
niko-nojogreppy - example file is basic , contains varchar(10)09:06

cmykunder installed software it says it's installed.09:06

james333jamesHey i just installed wine 1.2 but the installer didn't create the wine menu in the Application Menu09:07

glebihanMoopz: if you're only looking for the themes, you should download the themes tarball : http://grub.gibibit.com/files/grub-themes-src-2008-08-15.tgz09:08

Gnea\DSAFEW\: is it possible for you to explain like an intelligent human being?09:09
rww\DSAFEW\: Download the correct .iso file, copy it to the computer in the same directory as the wubi installer .exe, run Wubi.09:09
Moopzglebihan, but when I run the script, nothing really happens?09:09
\DSAFEW\Gnea, I really don't think I can be more clear.09:09
Gnea\DSAFEW\: then I'm sorry, I cannot help you.09:10
\DSAFEW\rww, thanks, that works like a charm :D09:10
chutwiztid: Most (possibly all?) of the settings are saved to your home directory (usually named ".<application_name>" - the . signifies a hidden file by the way). So if you backup your home drive, all the settings will come with that.09:10

niko-nojothx greppy - am I correct in thinking this should be possible with sed though. I'm off to practice it :)09:10
Moopzglebihan, I actually think they are installed now, but then I don't know how to chose which one it uses?09:11
greppyniko-nojo: I want to say "yes" but my perl-fu is greater than my sed-fu :)09:11
\DSAFEW\rww, to save me some time, is there a specific checksum file I need to change in order to make my iso work?09:11
\DSAFEW\rww, otherwise, I can download a new one09:11
niko-nojogreppy - thx for your help09:11
glebihanMoopz: do you have a themes folder in /boot/grub ?09:11
greppyniko-nojo: you're welcome :)09:11
rww\DSAFEW\: I'm not sure what you're asking...09:11
chutwiztid: Now, as far as saving a list of packages with Synaptic goes, I don't think it could be easier: In Synaptic, click "File -> Read Markings" that should save a list of currently installed packages. Name the file whatever you want, but make sure it's saved!09:12
\DSAFEW\rww, you said the "correct" iso, so I am assuming it does a checksum to check integrity09:12
\DSAFEW\rww, so can I tweak it to use my already downloaded version?09:12
glebihanMoopz: and it contains the themes winter, proto... ?09:12
Moopzglebihan, yes.09:13
Gnea\DSAFEW\: just install it on a usb drive09:13
rww\DSAFEW\: I meant if you're going to tell it to install Ubuntu, get the ubuntu-desktop ISO. Kubuntu kubuntu-desktop, etc.09:13
\DSAFEW\rww, alright09:13
Moopzglebihan, So it is installed, I know. But how to I select which one it should use?09:13
\DSAFEW\Gnea, the computer I'm working with doesn't have the ability to boot via USB or CD09:13
\DSAFEW\Gnea, and the internets are borked09:13
chutwiztid: Wait, sorry I got the name mixed up... Use "File -> Save Markings" to export a list of currently installed packages, use "File -> Read Markings" to import the list and install the packages.09:14
\DSAFEW\I'll be able to copy the installation files there and execute them though09:14
Gnea\DSAFEW\: what can it boot from, other than the hdd?09:14
rww\DSAFEW\: Oh, it gets prissy if you try to use a 32-bit ISO on a 64-bit capable computer. If that happens, start wubi with the "--32bit" option09:14

evilmercenaryCameronH, great :) about partitioning: the ubuntu installer is set up to be as easy as possible. to partition in the installer, when prompted select "i want to install ubuntu alongside windows" and it will open a slider up on the menu. from there you just graphically slide along to how big you want the partition to be (i'd suggest about 10-30GB for you) and how big your windows partition will be too. then press "finish partitioning"09:38

jinkHello there.  I'm trying to get my vmware 1.0.10 server (winxp x64) to boot linux-image-2.6.31-22-server, but to no avail.  I turned off quiet and splash in grub2, but after the menu's gone, I get a blank screen that stays there forever (? too long, anyway).  The last kernel I tried and would boot is the 2.6.27-7-server.  That works fine, but I'd like to upgrade.11:01
FedoraUserhi everybody11:01
FedoraUserthere is ubuntu pc on my network and I want to change samba settings, but my /etc/samba/smb.conf is empty11:02
bobthemilkmanWhy do you want to upgrade?11:02
jinkbobthemilkman: I think I need a newer smbfs to fix a subversion issue.11:02
FedoraUserbut samba works and have same shared folders which it had before ubuntu upgrade11:02
jinkbobthemilkman: And it kinda pisses me off that I can't find out why it won't work. ;)11:03
russboschenlong: thanks, I understand now, this has also caused me problems as i cant access files through windows or haiku - also installed - will a wubi reinstall not wipe my files?11:03
obengdakorussbos: wait11:04
bobthemilkmanjink: In my professional opinion, if a version doesn't work, don't use that version.  The smbfs issue should be handled in userspace (fuse), not in the kernel, so I'm not sure that upgrading is necessary.11:04
bobthemilkmanAlthough, a certain kernel not booting is quite a dire problem, however the solution to said problem is probably beyond the scope of a simple conversation.11:04
obengdakorussbos: if you have important files in your installation don't wipe it out11:04
jinkbobthemilkman: Ok.  I tried 2.6.31-14-server too and that wouldn't boot either. :(11:05
obengdakorussbos: you can use a live cd to mount the old installation and copy files, configurations ,etc before you do another install11:05
chenlongrussbos:install ubuntu on dard disk in diferrent boot order or diffrent pations.11:06

bobthemilkmanNow, I'm currently running 10.10 (which is set to be released in a few weeks), and I was looking through my available kernel images in aptititude, and I saw the following list of 2.6.31-14 to 2.6.35-22, but 2.6.35-22 is special in that it has an additional "-virtual" extension, in addition to generic and server.11:11
jinkbobthemilkman: Ah! :)  But that's .35, which I don't yet have, here. :/11:12
bobthemilkmanIf, and this is a big if, if the problem is kernel related, I'd suggest going about obtaining linux-headers-2.6.35-22-virtual from the maverick repositories, and trying to boot htat.11:12

bobthemilkmanJudging by my available linux kernels in maverick, and this isn't exactly expert testimony, it appears as though there was a bug introduced into the kernel that made it unbootable in virtualization somewhere around 2.6.31-14, and evidently fixed with a patch in 2.6.35-22.11:18

Ichattlir:  - xubuntu    lubuntu   can  do both  with the usb installer11:21
bobthemilkmanHowever, since you said that it's a virtual machine, I'd go ahead and make a copy of your system, and then try to install that via dpkg in one copy, and see if it works.11:21
jinkbobthemilkman: Well, it doesn't boot now, either. :P11:21
jinkbobthemilkman: And as long as grub still works, I should be fine, I guess.11:22
tlirIchat: not really, I tried ubuntu 8.10 (I know it's old but it's the discs I had here) and I installed it directly to the USB stick and it ran *REALLY* slow, I can't even operate the computer11:22

obengdakosKuarecircle: it is moving fast because of the frequency at which comments are being posted11:23
Ichattlir:  - it will offer you a tool to make a usb install11:23
obengdakosKuarecircle: you can use xchat11:23
bobthemilkmanHowever, like I said, I can't guarantee that that will work, much less fix your problem, but that would be my best guess and trying to get a booting ubuntu inside of virtualization.11:23
bobthemilkmanAlso, you said you're currently upgrading to lucid?11:24
bobthemilkmanThat's not really necessary, but you can if you want :P11:24

amol_sKuarecircle, The person at the other end sees a white screen, and when I use Cheese, it gives me a green screen11:27
jribelyob: maybe you want timestamp_timeout?  Read « man sudoers »11:27
elyobjrib: unless within 10 mins or so11:27
bobthemilkmanjink: Also, for a more permanent solution, have you ever considered just overhauling your entire system from SVN to git? :311:28
glebihangaohongyan: that's offtopic, this is the place for ubuntu support, for other topics, please join #ubuntu-offtopic11:28

gaohongyanyes ,,i know!!  i use ubuntu version is china make ! named "YLMF"!!! you know??? glebihan!11:29

jinkbobthemilkman: Yes, I realize that upgrading to lucid isn't required for your steps to work.  I'm gonna do it anyway. :P  And changing from svn to git is really not something I can make happen on a short term.  The entire company relies on svn. :o11:45
bobthemilkmanjink: It might be worthwhile to just wait 2 weeks and then upgrade directly to maverick, but that's my opinion.  lucid is the LTS, after all.11:47

Khasjrib: I thought that at first, too, but it didn't help.  Unless, of course, there's something the script is trying to do that it shouldn't be, but the path it gives for needing permissions is fine, although it is creating files.11:52

ThelzHello. On a network that otherwise consists of only Windows computers, I was running one computer with Ubuntu Server using the Samba File Server. Earlier today, I was suddenly unable to write files to the file server from one of the Windows computers. After a reboot of the Ubuntu computer, it suddenly won't connect to the internet anymore, and samba seems not to be running anymore. Anyone know what steps I could take?12:35
BlaDe^if that was the case wouldn't I of had issues on 9.10 as well as 10.04?12:35
BlaDe^I ran 9.10 for over 6 months flawlessly12:36

andreiutzHi ! Ubuntu 10.04 won't recognize my WD external hard drive ? On windows xp the drive is working fine. What could be the problem ?12:38
e1b26through likewise ?12:39
IchatBlaDe^:  -  try to find if your router supports  changing the band...   (bandwidth)...    if it does  i cant hurt to try.  -    no i think  signal   is     mesured in  Db  (desibel)   not in    bw  (mhz)12:39

e1b26abhjit what to do with DNS?12:40
IchatBlaDe^:  -  out of this scope and not eniterly recommanded but what router do you use?12:40
AbhiJite1b26, sorry wrong info12:40
BlaDe^i'm on sky broadband, they supply a router which you have to use due to them checking mac address12:40
Ichatdo you know the brand?12:40
Ichatand model12:40
e1b26ill configured DNS it in server 2003 but still while joining error comes that12:41
e1b26Domain join operation failed to create the computer account in Active Directory. Common causes are a bad administrator password, a bad OU name, or an existing computer account without modification permissions.12:41
BlaDe^they supply Netgear DG834GT / DG934G   --- so one of those two12:41
e1b26anyone can help me?12:41
BlaDe^probably the first12:41
underHi. I Installed Google Desktop but the keyboard shortcut doesnt work (CTRL+CTRL)12:42
IchatBlaDe^:  -  this is WAY out of best practise you think -  but  running  openwrt or ddwrt on your router would give you sutch features ... and it would keep your mac so it should still be supported...  -  but than again,  i should not advice you to do this.12:42
ThelzIf I'm running an Ubuntu Server with Samba File Server, and I reinstall Ubuntu and Samba from the CD, will the files that I stored on the file server remain available? (I understand that I'll have to reconfigure Samba, I just want to make sure the files remain)12:43
BlaDe^I'm not opposed to such things, for example both my iPhone's are jailbroken, etc. But i'd have to look into it more first12:43
andreiutzHi ! Ubuntu 10.04 won't recognize my WD external hard drive ? On windows xp the drive is working fine. What could be the problem ?12:43

ThelzThanks, glebihan...12:44
Ichatblade  im wild guessing really  but i would give it a  40  or maybe  60% chance of  fixing your problem...   -    depending on how well the documentation is for you exact device12:45
chenlongThelz:need reconfig.maybe you should make \etc stand alone.12:45
andreiutzgreppy, no, just that nothing happens12:45
greppyin a terminal, do a "tail -f /var/log/messages" while you plug in the drive12:45
andreiutzxinglight, I have installed it about 3 weeks ago12:45
ThelzShould I just use the Install feature on the CD rom? Or use the repair feature and then reinstall over it?12:45
greppymake sure it sees that you plugged it in :)12:45
Thelzchenlong> reconfig doesn't worry me, as long as the files remain12:46
greppyThelz: where are the files at?12:46
greppyThelz: are they on a partition other than /?12:46
Evo11Hi guys. I'm in need of some help12:46

airtonixiceroot, simply use : ls -o12:49
Evo11I'm running the latest ubuntu server edition. I had map drives on my window machines. Up until yesterday the server was running fine. But now today my window machines can't seem to reconnect the map drives. I have done a update on my Ubuntu server but still l can't seem to get my window machines to reconnect the map drives12:49
sacarlsoniceroot: ls -l12:49
airtonixiceroot, even just ls will show you if it is a symlink or not12:49
Evo11what do you think is the problem and how can l go about to sort this problem out?12:50
icerootairtonix: i am interestet in hardlinks12:50
quackiceroot: avoid hardlinks if you can.12:50
Cojagewhat is the easiest mailserver?12:50
icerootairtonix: so the file is 1 time on the hdd on 3 different locations12:51
glebihaniceroot: in the case of hard links, there's no *real* file12:51
airtonixiceroot, ok, for me in gnome-terminal i think symlinks are having red background, and hardlinks have a blue background12:51
airtonixiceroot, not ideal but there you go12:51
greppyiceroot: ls -l the file you are worried about, after the permissions will be a number, if it's higher than one, it's a directory or a hardlink.12:51
andreiutzgreppy, it flaps on and of I think, please check the output that never stops :)12:51
icerootgreppy: the number is 2, to i guess its a hardlink12:51
quackicerrot: only when you remove the last hard link you will remove the file.12:51
icerootquack: correct, that is a hardlink12:52
glebihaniceroot: this means that there are 2 links to that file12:52
airtonixiceroot, also, when i use ls -o or ls -l. ls displays results in column form (therefore showing the target item of the link)12:52
icerootglebihan: is there also a way to see where the other file is?12:52
iceroot-rw-r--r-- 2 root                root              0  2. Sep 17:12 juhu12:52
glebihaniceroot: I don't think so, let me check12:52
icerootthis should be a hardlink and juhu is two times on the hdd12:52
greppyandreiutz: hrm, got a link from that pastebin?12:53
icerootok i createt another hardlink and the number is 3, so everything is fine12:53
quackiceroot: so you have to know in advance all references to an hardlink in order to free the space on disk.  Worse than checking if a symlink is dangling or not.12:53
andreiutzgreppy, sorry http://paste.ubuntu.com/502593/12:53
BiG-Manybody knows about kthreadd and its spawns :(12:53
icerootquack: i dont care about freeing the space, that is part of the kernel12:54
icerootquack: or the filesystem, i dont know12:54
BlaDe^it dropped again, I have a dmesg if anyone would be kind enough to take a look... I'll pastie12:55
awantiI had lost my User name and root password.. is there any chance to create new one without losing any data12:55
rww!password | awanti12:55
ubottuawanti: Forgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords12:55
quackicerrot: what I mean is that if you have a file and do not know all hardlinks pertaining to it, you will find a hell of a trouble unlinking it away to recall the disk space.12:55
BlaDe^The link is here: http://pastie.org/118873812:56
icerootquack: if i am correct, unlink foobar is killing foobar and all hardlinks of it12:56
quackWith symlinks you can always dereference the symlink, erase the file and the symlink and check for other symlinks.12:56
andreiutzgreppy, sorry http://paste.ubuntu.com/502593/12:57
icerootquack: but i need hardlinks because i wrote a backup-script using rsync with hardlinks and deleting old backups automaticly12:57
quackicerrot: unlink foobar only detetes foobar IF you are deleting the LAST symlink.  If not, the file persists.12:57
icerootquack: so for every new backup i only have to copy new files, else rsync is setting a hardlink12:57
icerootquack: and have a look at "tab" to complete my nick correctly12:57
icerootquack: but that is fine that foobar will only get complety deleted if there is no foobar anymore12:58
quackCall from EXTERNAL-PROGRAM with "ln file newhardlink".12:58
Thelzgreppy: Happen to know where I can read more about replaceable drives and moving files for the ubuntu shell?12:59
quackiceroot: does your program know ALL hardlinks?  (same disk volume, only on files)12:59
glebihaniceroot: the -samefile option of find should allow you to find all hard links to a file, ie "find / -samefile juhu"12:59
quackicerrot: if so, use EXTERNAL-PROGRAM to do it.  You can use clbuild or asdf-install to bring it down.13:00
e1b26Domain join operation failed to create the computer account in Active Directory. Common causes are a bad administrator password, a bad OU name, or an existing computer account without modification permissions.13:00

Thelzyeah, and then rebooted13:02
BlaDe^It appears the issue i'm having is also here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/61044013:02
quackiceroot: if you are sure, use them.  No harm trying.  You can always resort to symlinks later.13:02
e1b26still its same /......13:03
icerootquack: with symlinks i have a big problem13:03
greppyThelz: ok, at a terminal: df -kh13:03
greppyThelz: do you see a new partition there?13:03
icerootquack: i make a backup everyday, on the first day i create foobar, the day 2-6 i dont change foobar, on the 8 day i delete the backup from day 1. have fun with symlinks...13:03
icerootquack: for that, hardlinks are perfect13:04
greppyiceroot: have you thought about using rsnapshot?13:04

icerootBlaDe^: normally you still have that kernel in the grub menu13:05
airtonixleonidus, investigate portforwarding for your adsl modem/router13:05
greppyBlaDe^: was the old kernel removed?13:05
Braber01Hi I was wondering if anybody could solve my keyring problem, I use a scure wireless network, however everytime I login using the login Shell, then startx I'm prompted to enter my password again to start my internet is there a way I can fix this?13:05
Thelzgreppy> I see 2 /dev/mapper/ lines... they both have the size of the harddisks inside (which should be mirrored into one harddisk using the sweex controller)13:05
quackiceroot: I do not understand why the problem there.  Just create the foobar-YYYMMDD.bkp file, close it, symlink through EXTERNAL-PROGRAM, and open the symlink with WITH-OPEN-FILE.13:06
greppyleonidus: also check to make sure you won't be in violation of your ISP AUP :)13:06
gsedej_workhi! Where in 10.04 is GDM (theme, background) configuration file?13:06
Thelzone is /dev/mapper/Lapje-root (where Lapje is the server's name)13:06
greppyThelz: ok, "dmesg | grep -i usb"13:06
Thelzthe other is /dev/mapper/sil_ajajacgfbgbj513:06
BlaDe^greppy:  I'm not sure I went straight from 9.10 to 10.0413:06
airtonixgsedej_work, there is not one. gdm2 themes are handled the same way your desktop theme is handled (this time round the login is done by the user called "gdm")13:06
BlaDe^I have the issue which is here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/61044013:06
quackiceroot: close the symlink when you rotate the backup by falling out of WITH-OPEN-FILE and open a new one with the procedure above.13:07
leonidusk greppy13:07
greppyBlaDe^: when you reboot, does grub give you the option of using the old kernel?13:07
BlaDe^some people say that it doesn't exist in the 2.6.32-23 kernel13:07
BlaDe^no greppy13:07
airtonixgsedej_work, so you need to run the appearances program while at the login screen13:07
icerootquack: rsync has a build-in check-and-build-hardlink option13:07
gsedej_workairtonix, I need to change this on multiple pc, remote13:07
gsedej_workairtonix, you can't just copy .config, .gnome2, ...?13:08
awantiI want to connect my friend system (Ubuntu machine) through terminal using ssh. I am getting confuse how can i connect because he as 3 pc (he is using NAT for Internet )13:08
Thelzgreppy: That shows a lot of stuff, and near the end there's "Device found at 2", but df -kh doesn't show it13:08
greppyawanti: he has to setup a forward on his router for you to be able to connect13:08
greppyThelz: ok13:08
icerootquack: so i dont need to fight with symlinks, also rsync is checking if the file is already there as a hardlink and not sending the same file again, so i dont have to fight with diffs too13:08
gsedej_workawanti, if he is using router, he needs to have port forwarding enabled13:08
greppyThelz: just means that it did not mount it automatically, not a big deal.13:08
airtonixgsedej_work, i think you can do it with gconf-tool213:09
jinkbobthemilkman: Well, this is brilliant.... :(  I upgraded to lucid.  That didn't make my new kernel work, but the 27-7 still works, so that's fine.  Now I installed the 35-22-virtual as per your instructions, and that doesn't work.  After grub, it just says: [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x3400, size=0x430190]  [Initrd, addr=0x37c6c000, size=0x383712]13:09

gsedej_workairtonix, thanks, I will try13:09
ThelzI have no idea how the usb drive is formatted. It's empty, tho, so it can be reformatted.13:09
bobthemilkmanI think.13:09
airtonixgsedej_work, you might like to use the tool : ssh-cluster to send one command to many machines at the same time13:09
gsedej_workairtonix, thanks for advice! :)13:09
BlaDe^is anyone able to advise on my problem?13:10

undecimkrishnan: You mean a disk connected to your computer?14:42
DrDamnitsacarlson: In certain cases, DNS wouldn't be available, so I would need the scripts to configure the NIC in order to get on the internet. Otherwise, downloads would be fine. Plus... never trust a user to download and execute bash scripts, right?14:42

DrDamnitsacarlson: that would be even better.14:43
undecimkrishnan: So this is a NAS (network attached storage) drive then?14:43
jpkeeltyundecim: well again much appreciated... just frustrated you'd THINK it would be eaier to get a linux distro up and running then windows.. but no luck so far14:43

sacarlsonDrDamnit:  check out https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization14:45
undecimjpkeelty: From what I understand, macs have a different boot process than pcs, so a drive that's bootable on pcs might not be bootable on macs... or maybe I just misunderstand it...14:45
jpkeeltyundecim: for sure.. and that IS true... but seeing as i CAN (though dont want to ) get windows running in a dual boot from external usb drive senerio...you would THINK there must be some way to do the same with linux14:47
