DroneWorkAnyone here successfully use a cablecard tuner on their ubuntu box?00:01
aciculawell i wouldnt call ti a succes, but i have used a tvtuner card yeah00:01
DroneWorkcable card ability or no?00:02
IdleOnest__: Version 0.63.1ubuntu700:02
aciculacable card? not sure what you mean, i used an analog tuner card00:02
MasterDroneWork: Whats a "Cable card" .. descramler etc ?00:02
MasterDroneWork: Whats a "Cable card" .. descrambler etc ?00:02
aciculanot sure about the CI digital cards00:02
nogoit sould be dvb00:03
DroneWorkCablecard....allows your PC to pair with your cable provider and provide you cable channels directly to your PC00:03
DandanOk so i'm having problems with wireshark again any help00:03
DroneWorkso yes, in a way it works like a descrambler00:03
aciculahttp://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-T_PCI00:03
aciculadronework, theres two types, ones got an analog tuner, the other is a 'digital' sytem that needs a decoder card that looks like a credit card00:04
DroneWorkyes I know00:04
DroneWorkthere are multi stream ones as well00:04
aciculayeah, but its not clear which one you are referring to00:04
DroneWorkwho uses analog these days?00:04
aciculathe majority of the world populaton?00:05
DroneWorkanyways, analog does not require a cablecard00:05
nogoi won't take this kind of cards00:05
=== jsurfer_ is now known as jsurfer
nogoit's dangerous as a credit card00:05
aciculaexcept the form factor these cards have nothing in common with credit card payment systems00:06
aciculaanyway, if your provider allows you to use older CI interfaces then you can get it to work under linux provided your card is supported, with CI+ you cant00:08

Wanabeacicula: depends on the computer brand, it might require a human sacrifice (HP)00:25
aciculachrisbuntunerd: no grub prompt may mean your vista installation is fine still, however, and this is probably important, go get the manual, and check you have recovery cd's, or how to make them (for windows).00:25
chrisbuntunerdbut I still want programs and files00:27

aciculawell im not sure why your windows isntallation is not working anymore, thats something for ##windows, but its not the mbr, since you describe windows starting. you can get grub back by booting an ubuntu livecd and reinstalling grub, i think the wiki covers that00:47

LordDragonhey all. im trying to configure my skype to output via a headset and input from the headset but without changing my whole system to use the headset as the primary sound device. the only option i get in skype is "pulse aidio (default)". is there a way i can get to select the headset?00:48
sam555if you change the smb.conf file, do you have to restart samba?00:49
sam555if so, how?00:49
aciculapa-devman lets you swap streams to different outputs00:49
aciculawait its called differntly, sec00:50
aciculapadevchooser00:50
leifsam555: sudo service smbd restart would do the trick I guess00:51
sam555leif: thanks!00:51
LordDragonok acicula i installed it. but skype still only allows "pulse audio server (local)"00:51
LordDragonhow do i configure it to let me select headset?00:51
aciculato have it show up as a separate pulse audio output you'll have to add a sink, call it headset and add your headset to that sink00:51
LordDragonacicula, oh ok. where is the config for that? im hoping there is a gui?00:52
sam555leif: didn't work, says unrecognized servce00:52
aciculapadevchooser, start it, its an applet00:52

EmtsujI'm having a problem upgrading to 10.04. It wouldn't work via the Update Manager so I burned a disk. I booted up with the disk in, it got to the language selection, selected english, chose to install and then I see a flashing underscore for 10 seconds and then the screen goes black forever.00:55
leifsam555: Are you sure you have the samba server installed? Because in 9.04 you restart it over /etc/init.d/smbd00:55
sam555leif: i'm double checking.  there is the samba conf file and directory in /etc/ so I assumed it was installed00:56
aciculaEmtsuj: what hardware do you have?00:56
LordDragonacicula, ok im in. and im in the manager. but i dont see a place to create a new sink00:56
EmtsujI don't really know. 10.04 was installed before but it wouldn't boot. It got to the login, I heard stuff happening, hit enter, typed my password and logged in, but nothing appeared00:56
sam555leif: I'm just gonna install00:57
leifsam555: According to the following pace, that is the default way to restart samba. How about saving the conf in your home folder, purging and reinstalling samba?00:57

kurt_yes01:02
kurt_i explained it01:02
kurt_then asked if someone can help lol01:02
aciculaah01:02
aciculadont use the .run files01:02
aciculaubuntu has its own installer for nvidia drivers01:03
kurt_then how do i updatemy nvidia driver ?01:03
kurt_oh01:03
aciculasystem -> administration -> hardware drivers01:03
kurt_becuase i used the nvidia website and it gave me a .run file which i dont know how to use :(01:03
LjLyou don't. you use the driver from the repos, if updates come out for them they'll be installed automatically in due time01:03
kurt_ive tried system administration and hardware drivers... and it doesnt have an update button01:03
LjLdon't aim to always have the latest version (of anything), because that generally makes no sense and can be very counter-productive.01:03
kurt_only says i am using the driver or something,  but im not using the updated version01:03
LjLkurt_: that's because the driver gets updated together with other packages by means of the package manager01:03
kurt_hmm01:04
kurt_im not sure how up to date i am though... i think my driver is a few versions behind... not just 1 version01:04
uLinux!magnetlinks01:05
kurt_and hardware drivers doesnt have an update button only lets me activate and deactivate drivers01:05
aciculayou are running the latest version if your system is up to date01:05
DrDeepsthat is so annoying01:05
DrDeepsI need a new ethernet cable...01:05
drbutti installed the drivers from nvidia's site and rolledback to ubuntu's driver package, had better results.01:05
aciculathe latest version that is suited for your curent system that is01:05
kurt_so the graphics driver will update with "Update Manager" ?01:06
drbuttyes.01:06
LjLkurt_: "apt-cache policy nvidia-glx" should tell you, although i'm not sure nvidia-glx is the correct package name these days01:06

LjLkurt_: if "Installed" and "Candidate" match, then you're up to date01:07
kurt_ok what should that tell me01:07
aciculawell there are a few legacy drivers too still, depending on which card you have?01:07
kurt_becuase it looks like i get blank results :s01:07
drbuttyou can't install the nvidias-site drivers while in gnome anyway, you need to compile it in the termial. but like i said, i rolled back to the driver suite provided by ubuntu anyway.01:07
kurt_it says "Installed: (none)"01:08
kurt_"Candidate: (none)"01:08

kurt_so what am i meant to do to make sure i have the right driver installed and activated ? :s01:13
EmtsujI'm having a problem upgrading to 10.04. It wouldn't work via the Update Manager so I burned a disk. I booted up with the disk in, it got to the language selection, selected english, chose to install and then I see a flashing underscore for 10 seconds and then the screen goes black forever. It was installed before but it stopped working. sorry to repost again...01:13
aciculanothing, the system figures out which one is right for you and activates it01:13
coz_lsrline,   with the text did you higlight the text then  Path /  Object to path01:13
lsrlinecoz_: yeah I just have text entered in and I want to be able to convert that text into an object, so that you no longer need the font associated with the text01:13
kurt_so is my driver working properly or not right now ? :s01:13
aciculasince its listed as activated its working (or you'd not have a working graphical interface)01:13
aciculayeah it is01:14
coz_lsrline,  ok that's what you do ...highlight the text  go to  Path / Object to path01:14
kurt_hmm ok01:14
kurt_and soon the update will be in the "Update Manager" right ?01:14
aciculano01:14
kurt_for the newer driver01:14
kurt_oh xD01:14
coz_lsrline,  then you do not have to have that specialized text on another system for it to be rendered properly01:14
aciculaprobably never, sec ill dig it up01:14
lsrlinecoz_: sweet thanks...01:15
coz_lsrline,  would you like an example  to be sure?01:15
jrennerhey everyone I'm having an issue with playing a video. in particular an ogv file with ogg theora video and vorbis audio. the audio works fine but I'm getting no video01:15
kurt_:s but updates are released for a reason :s i mean reading the update notes it fixes a few bugs that are apparently current with the driver i have now01:15
aciculanvidia posts drivers here http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html01:16
aciculaif you look there you see the latest driver for linux is http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-amd64-256.53-driver.html01:16
aciculanow check which gpus those drivers support01:16
h00k!nvidia01:16
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto01:16
lsrlinecoz_: nah, that's okay I got what I needed.. thanks again... for whatever reason when I was adjusting the kerning on the text it would chop off part of the letters on top, but making it an object (which i needed to do anyway) fixes it01:16
stiltzkinhey guys, hoping you can help me with something. I have an (apparently infamous) issue wherein ksoftirqd consumes 100% of my cpu01:16
jrennerhey everyone I'm having an issue with playing a video. in particular an ogv file with ogg theora video and vorbis audio. the audio works fine but I'm getting no video01:17
aciculainteresting, its still listed there01:17
coz_lsrline,  oh yeah   that is way different procedure :)01:17
kurt_well my driver version i have now01:17
kurt_isnt even on that list :s whats going on lol xD01:17
stiltzkinoutput of dmesg | tail shows lots of messages like sr 1:0:0:0: timing out command, waited 120s01:17
stiltzkinwat do?01:17
coz_lsrline,  and actually you are making the object into a path  not the other way around01:18
stiltzkinCan't kill the process, it just respawns immediately01:18
jrenneruninstall?01:18
stiltzkinAnyone have any idea what I'm talking about? For reference, I'm running 2.6.35-2201:19
vistrowhy am I getting 'Daemon is inhibited' when mounting an EXT3 FS?01:19
kurt_how do i see what driver version i have installed for my nVidia then ? becuase i think im looking in the wrong place01:19
aciculakurt_: no it appears a 9800 isnt legacy, i thought it would be, but that driver lsits it as supported still01:19
jrennerhey everyone I'm having an issue with playing a video. in particular an ogv file with ogg theora video and vorbis audio. the audio works fine but I'm getting no video. however if I play through chromium the built-in codecs there read the video fine01:20
kurt_hmm01:20
aciculakurt_: not sure, its still not a good idea to try the unpackaged driver though01:20
stiltzkinThis is really very frustrating. It's eating all my resources and there's no way to stop it01:20
kurt_howcome ? :s01:20
jrennerstiltzkin. just uninstall?01:21
kurt_would nvidia really tell me there is an update to my driver which fixes some bugs if it wasnt gonna work properly ? : /01:21
stiltzkinjrenner, just installed lol01:21
indecipherableati graphics card?01:21
aciculasec, just checking version numbering01:21
indecipherableoh nvm nvidea01:21
aciculathe new 10.10 ubuntu uses the newer 253 driver01:21
kurt_ok01:21
jrennerstiltzkin what program is it again?01:21
aciculaso it looks like nvidia just pulled a bumpgate on the driver?01:21
kurt_im using 10.0401:22
stiltzkinjrenner, ksoftirqd, it's apparently a low level device thing01:22
uLinuxIs there a command to remove a PPA?01:22
v1zoanyone has advice on redirecting bind through tor? haven't found anything at google01:22
vistroDisregard that I suck cocks...01:22
aciculakurt_: yeah stick with that, and upgrade to 10.10 if you need some of the features or must have the newer nvidia driver01:22
kurt_what new features does 10.10 have then ?01:23
kurt_that i wont have now in 10.0401:23
jrennerstiltzkin: try upgrading kernel "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"01:23
stiltzkinv1zo, install torsocks. then you can just use the "usewithtor" command01:23
stiltzkinjrenner, running updates right now actually...and praying01:23
kurt_cus im not up for formatting my computer right now lol :P01:23
aciculakurt_: dunno updated software and drivers :)01:23
coz_kurt_,  http://blog.mypapit.net/2010/09/new-features-and-changes-in-ubuntu-10-10-maverick.html01:23
kurt_thanks01:23
v1zostiltzkin: thanks a lot01:24
aciculayou can just do inplace uprgades, dont need to nuke existing isntalls01:24
stiltzkinv1zo, np01:24
coz_kurt_,   https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MaverickMovies01:24
jrennerokay does anyone have some codec knowledge for me?01:24
rmrfslash10.10 will come with 3D glasses and won't be displayed on a "traditional" display. Rather, it will be sent directly into your occipital cortex over TCP.01:24
stiltzkinrmrfslash, but can it play Crysis?01:24
rmrfslashno, that was the only regression bug01:24
stiltzkindammit.01:25
kurt_so will i ever get nvidia driver updates in 10.04 using update manager ? :s01:25
kurt_im confused now01:25
aciculakurt_: i doubt it01:25
jrennerstiltzkin: if you did any updating be sure to reboot01:25
kurt_and why dont nvidia give me an easier way to install the driver : /01:25
Ugly_Duckcan i upgrade my sources.list for debian to include lucid packages or will that totally break my system?01:25
kurt_instead of giving me some .run file with a stupid complicated way to run it01:25
coz_kurt_,  unlikely but you could use the ppa for new drivers01:25
aciculakurt_: it will require a backport of the newer driver to 10.0401:25
kurt_i dont know how to do it :(01:25
stiltzkinjrenner, absolutely. it's taking forever because it's using an entire core of my CPU01:25
kurt_ppa ?01:25
aciculakurt_: well its not stupidly complicated, but it may require software not rpesent on your sytem, or may be altogether incompatible with your Xserver, etc01:26
coz_kurt_,    https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat/+archive/x-updates01:26
kurt_well it tells me i have to stop x server or soemthing to install it01:26
coz_kurt_,  the driver there is the 260.19.0601:26
kurt_i stop x server...then my screen is blank wtf ....01:26
rmrfslashkurt_: the run file isn't that big of a deal, is it? are you saying this because you need to stop the X server to install it (agreed, that's annoying)?01:26
jrennerstiltzkin: its a little hackish but "while [ 1==1 ]; do killall ksoftirqd; done;"01:26
stiltzkinjrenner, I'm a little worried about hardware problems with this as well, my CPU has to be lava hot right now, and the fan is kicking01:26
danc3kurt_: it's "hard" to run a .run file?01:26
kurt_well like i said im new to linux01:27
kurt_and i cant get my updated driver to install cus i dont know what to do once i stop x server01:27
kandinskihi01:27
danc3kurt_: did you read the instructions there on the Nvidia driver page?01:27
Ugly_Duckacicula: any ideas?01:27
h00kkurt_: did you check the documentation on !nvidia01:27
h00k!nvidia > kurt_01:27
ubottukurt_, please see my private message01:27
danc3sheesh01:27
kurt_it didnt give me any, just gave me the download01:28
danc3kurt_: look again01:28
rmrfslashkurt_: you're unlikely to get sympathy here anyways when it comes to restricted drivers... from experience01:28
jrennerstiltzkin: are you overclocked or is your comp pressed up a against a wall or buried in the ground? if not you _should_ be okay....01:28
aciculaUgly_Duck: no you cant mix debian and ubuntu01:28
stiltzkinjrenner, I don't think even that will keep it down. It spawns new processes as soon as they're killed. Killing all of them will probably use about as many resources01:28
kurt_what you mean ?01:28
NOMADICUSHow do I reload the fstab?01:28
coz_kurt_,   that ppa should work since that driver is slightly better than the nvidia_current offered in lucid01:28
kurt_i dont want sympathy just wanted to know if i could get some help01:28
jrennerstiltzkin: prolly right.... but a while loop of killing is always fun right? :P01:28
aciculayeah id stick with the ppa if you must fiddle with the drivers01:29
coz_kurt_,   I have used that driver with fewer difficulties01:29
acicula.run files is just asking for gamebreaking stuff01:29
kurt_the 260.19.06 ?01:29
stiltzkinjrenner, yeah I suppose lol. I'm just frustrated that I couldn't find any definitive answer for what causes this. Dates back to 2004 but no one has a real paper trail on it01:29
jrennerhaha I'm pretty sure kernel upgrades should solve your problem01:29
danc3kurt_: you couldn't read this file, right there on the Nvidia driver page:  http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/256.53/README/installdriver.html01:30
kandinskiI have a working Ubuntu Maverick install that's terminal-only. I installed ubuntu-gnome and nvidia-current with all the dependencies and then did a sudo nvidia-xconfig, but when I try to sudo startx it says it can't find the nvidia module, what do I need to do next?01:30
stiltzkinjrenner, I mean most people just said stuff along the lines of "it has something to do with the wireless drivers; just reinstall"01:30
scgtrpjust installed kubuntu, is there any way to get a newer kernel than what comes with it besides compiling it myself? 2.6.34 (35?) had a patch that made acpi work on my laptop01:30
coz_kurt_,   yeah as long as you install it via that ppa... I would not suggest using the official driver ONLY because lucid makes it so you have to jump through a few hoops to get it installed01:30
h00k!maverick | kandinski01:30
ubottukandinski: Maverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10, due October 2010 - Maverick is NOT released and NOT Stable, discussion and support in #ubuntu+101:30
kandinskioh right, thanks h00k01:30
jrennerstiltzkin: that might be a good idea if upgrading doesn't work01:30
coz_kurt_,  so enable that ppa  and do an update and it should install automatically01:30
aciculascgtrp: bacports, ppa, compiling it yourself, that pretty much summs it up?01:30
kurt_well no, i just clicked on driver downloads and chose my card etc didnt notice anywhere in them steps a "how to install" : / i was expecting it would be easier01:30
scgtrpacicula: backports? where?01:31
scgtrp(also what's ppa?)01:31
rmrfslashscgtrp: personal packages archive01:31
stiltzkinjrenner, don't see what it'll solve though, because inevitably the same wireless drivers and ksoftirqd daemon will get installed next time01:31
kurt_ok ill try the ppa, thanks coz_01:31
aciculapersonal package archive, from other people or projects01:31
danc3kurt_: slow down and pay attention to what you're doing01:31
h00k!ppa | scgtrp01:31

tombaughbooks have been written about this but I still don't get it... I'm following an introductory linux course and one assignment question is how to "enable the root account"... some are suggesting "sudo su-" but doesn't that merely give you some root privileges, as the root account is still disabled? but if so, what's the difference? if it is not "real" root, is there a way to demonstrate that?01:31
coz_scgtrp,   Personal Package Archive   I believe01:31
scgtrpinstalling firefox, will take a look in a few01:31
coz_ok I am off for the night  ...clean install time :)01:31
aciculascgtrp: unless you need feature xyz its ussually not worth the hassle transplanting kernels01:32
dwxreaperI always just enable it01:32
h00k!root | tombaugh this article explains it.  Note, it's not officially supported if you do enable the root account01:32
ubottutombaugh this article explains it.  Note, it's not officially supported if you do enable the root account: 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/RootSudo01:32
scgtrpacicula: i kinda do, i can't boot with acpi enabled and my laptop gets ridiculously hot :(01:32
jrennerstiltzkin: true but installs aren't infallible. its sorta a last ditch effort.01:32
rmrfslashtombaugh: I never enable root... sudo su to become root user but I've never set the root password01:32
aciculascgtrp: fan control ussually is a bios thing i think?01:32
aciculaon laptops that is01:32
jrennersudo -s works too01:32
scgtrpacicula: yeah, my bios is really screwed up and switches out some important tables halfway through boot which makes linux explode01:33
plitterWhy cant i get to download the rest of my podcast (have 200) in gpodder even when i set the setting for 900? Theres supposed to be at least 380 episodes in that podcast....01:33
Cajun_Lan_ManDoes anyone have any experience running Conky? I installed it from the Ubuntu repositories, but I have no idea how to start/run/configure it.01:33
aciculaic and the fix is in a newer kernel?, dunno which ppa you need but thats where you need to look for a kernel01:33
scgtrpacicula: yeah, reported it to the linux people and it was patched over in .34 or .35 (can't remember which)01:33
xcaliberHello All.........01:35
aciculaah01:35
aciculascgtrp: alternatively, 10.10 beta uses .35 by default01:37
aciculait looks like anyway01:37
rmrfslashwill ubuntu 10.10 come with vga-switcheroo or whatever it's called for hybrid graphics laptops?01:37

aciculai havent heard of that working on linux01:38
scgtrpacicula: ubuntu doesn't require a full reinstall to upgrade, right? i remember some distro doing that and thinking it was a horrible idea01:38
aciculahttps://launchpad.net/~kernel-ppa/+archive/ppa appears to be the kernel ppa01:38

scgtrpalright then01:38
weeklyquestion: what does the little arrow on the bottom left of my floders in gnome01:39
weeklyon the icon01:39
ldskfjUbuntu .bashrc as complete as KUbuntu's?: - Am I not seeing something important?  the Ubuntu's system .bashrc is no where near as complete as the KUbuntu system: ex, 2 specifics: 1) aliases, 2) prompt colors.   -  Is there a more complete set of settings available to easily be installed/added/usedWith the Ubuntu system?  Where & how can I get that, for adding into my Ubuntu system?01:39
weeklydoes it mean that it (the "folder") is actually a link to another physical location?01:39
aciculaldskfj: sure its not overwritten somehow?01:40
mattgyverweekly, yeah its a symlink01:40
mattgyverweekly, oh wait mine is on the bottom right, yours is on the left?01:41
weeklymattgyver, no no your right01:42
ernieneed help on import of mbox into claws mail from the ubuntu repo.  Thunderbird properly imports the mbox but claws mail does not.  I have the mbox plugin install01:42
weeklyits on the bottom right01:42
mattgyverweekly, oh okay, your other left cool :)01:42
weeklymattgyver, is their an easy way to manage the links? right clicking doesnt give me much in the proerties department01:43
aciculascgtrp: i forgot to add, 10.10 is still beta, stuff breaks, so ymmv01:43
ldskfjacicula - how would I know the answer to that?  This is a computer lab computer, with a new account, which I didn't set up.  It has a small .baxhrc, 745 bytes, so my presumption is that is the standard .bashrc.  Is the standard Ub .bashrc different fro that, 745 bytes?01:43
mattgyverweekly, not really that i can tell without just editing it from the command line01:43
Phantom11121I installed ubuntu 10.04 and with my wireless N card i see the network, but it would not connect01:44
weeklymattgyver, is their a command that i can --help to look at managing them?01:45
aciculawell .bashrc is a clone from either a default bashrc or a bashrc setup by your sysadmin01:45
mattgyverweekly, check out; man ln01:45
rmrfslashPhantom11121: do you recieve an IP?01:45
rmrfslash... address?01:45
DarkRedmanHi :)01:46
Phantom11121rmrfslash no, nothing it keeps asking to reenter the passcode01:46
Phantom11121rmrfslash or the webkey01:46
jrennerhey everyone I'm having an issue with playing a video. in particular an ogv file with ogg theora video and vorbis audio. the audio works fine but I'm getting no video. however if I play through chromium the built-in codecs there read the video fine01:46
rmrfslashtry the Hex Key option01:46
rmrfslashSorry, Ascii01:47
Phantom11121rmrfslash ascii, well the passcode are just numbers, does that make a difference?01:47
aciculajrenner: what video player are you using?01:48
n0a1iaswhats the channel for compiz fusion help?01:48
DarkRedmanI've made a USB Key, but my BIOS don't detect it, should I specify LBA flag ?!01:48
abstraktn0a1ias, #screwyourmachine I think01:48
jrennerI've tried totem, mplayer, and vlc01:48
n0a1iasabstrakt, ha ha ha, but really01:48
aciculaDarkRedman: not unless its from the stoneage01:48
rmrfslashPhantom11121: sure man, numbers can be in ascii... worth a try01:48
Phantom11121will try it, ty01:48
DarkRedmanso why my BIOS couldn't detect it ?!01:49
aciculaDarkRedman: check your bios for support for usb booting01:49
jrenner*acicula: I've tried totem, mplayer, and vlc01:49
aciculaDarkRedman: what hardware?01:49
DarkRedmanI've already did with another usb key it works01:49
aciculajrenner: none of those give video but all give audio?01:49
DarkRedmanAMI Bios MSI/Nvidia Card01:49

aciculanot the harrdware then, check your usb stick and make sure its bootable?01:50
ubuntuI think my HD might be done for.  Anyone recommend a way to tell for sure?01:50
DarkRedmanShould I do a pastbin of lspci ?01:50
DarkRedmanIt's bootable01:50
aciculaDarkRedman: its the usb stick thats improperly initialized, or your bios is not setup to boot from the stick. Rebuild the boot stick, change the boot order in your bios or use the boot device selection key when the system is posting to select the usb stick01:51
jrenneracicula: yes. and mplayer gives me some interesting output01:51
jrenneracicula: VIDEO:  [theo]  720x480  24bpp  29.970 fps    0.0 kbps ( 0.0 kbyte/s)01:51
DarkRedmanI did it with unetbootin and even gtk-usb-creator01:51
mattgyverubuntu, best way to determine is with the vendors utility they normally have tests it can perform.  If you suspect its bad salvage whatever data you can asap.01:51
aciculajrenner: well vlc, totem and vlc use different backends01:51
robert83a2hello, I'm runing ubuntu (no idea which version) I just tried to install postfix (instead of exim4) but I keep getting this error : http://www.pastebin.ca/1951492 HELP :)01:51
aciculawell im sure they all use the same theora lib in the end actually01:51
aciculabut different wrapeprs for ti01:52
ubuntumattgyver:  maybe too late. :(.  I can see the disk in pampliset (using a live CD)  but I can do any operations on it.01:52
tripelbI got an update notice today, After I clicked on do updates I get a window that tells me they cant be authenticated. What's up?01:52
aciculadoes totem not complain about a missing codec?01:52
DarkRedmanacicula: does usb-gtk-creator is enough to remake my USB stick ?!01:52
aciculaDarkRedman: err that or unetbootin should let you create a proper boot stick01:53
jrenneracicula: mhmm but that 0kbps is bothering me01:53
aciculayup01:53
ubuntumattgyver: but gparted can't see it at all? wtf?01:53
mattgyverubuntu, you could try doing a fsck on the drive but I dont know if thats gonna help you too much, dont do it while the drive is mounted though01:53
aciculajrenner: malformed video eprhaps?01:53
ubuntunone of the partitions will mount. and fdisk -l /dev/sda returns a blank line.  I'll see if fsck knows something I don't01:54
mattgyverubuntu, most dead drives ive seen dont show up in gparted, sometimes you can repair those disks with the vendors utility or the tools on systemrescuecd01:54
xompis the cURL for apache2 in ubuntu just hopelessly busted?01:54
jrenneracicula: yes but I can play the video in chromium and I could also play it on a previous installation of ubuntu01:54
mattgyverubuntu, does blkid show anything for the drive?01:54
aciculayeah but chromium uses the same system libs as totem & co do01:55
aciculawhich makes it kind of weird01:56
ubuntunot listed in blkid01:56
mattgyverubuntu, what brand drive is it?01:56
aciculaif the disk is really on its last legs, a bucket and dry ice may give you the time to grab the data off the disk with dd?01:56
ubuntuhttp://ubuntu.pastebin.com/FNJ4ddEq01:57
madjoeany db design tool you would recommend for mysql?01:57
madjoeanyone?01:57
ubuntuit is a seagate drive.01:57
aciculaphpmysql ?01:58
madjoeacicula: link?01:58
aciculajrenner: i cant really come up with a logical reason as to why that video works in chromium but not in the others01:58
aciculaerr phpmyadmin even01:58
aciculajust type it into your adressbar and itll take you there01:59
aciculajrenner: as at least some of those programs use the same libraries for decoding, vlc may have its own01:59
madjoephpmyadmin is a pile of crap, I need something more advanced01:59
ubuntumadjoe: phpmyadmin works for what I need (simple db stuff)01:59
ubuntulol, sorry got that message01:59
robert83a2how is one supposed to remove EXIM4 on Ubuntu02:00

greppymadjoe: ah, I do all of my db design in vi :)02:01
robert83a2YEAH succes :))02:02
aciculaits possible, and theres probably a few guides on it too02:02
madjoegreppy: because you're a real man, and I'm a pussy ;)02:02
madjoelol02:02
sweezeare deskbar-applet and eclipse installable in maverick?  update-manager -d wants to remove them on upgrade, but if they're reinstallable after upgrade, that's fine w/ me02:02

SeanInSeattleHey all.  I'm getting this error message on my new web server (vps):  <my username>  is not in the sudoers file.  This incident will be reported.02:11
greppySeanInSeattle: you need to run "sudo visudo" as a user that can use sudo.  "man sudoers" will have info on syntax02:12
SeanInSeattlegreppy:  I see a text edit with /etc/sudoers loaded.  What edits should I be making?02:13
ubuntuthanks for the advice everyone else.02:14
DulakSeanInSeattle: exit that and just add your user to the admin group for sudo access: sudo adduser username admin02:14
SeanInSeattlegreppy:  but I don't see an admin group listed in the sudoers group.02:15
DulakSeanInSeattle: have to do that as a user that has sudo access, and you'll have to relog the user you added to the admin group for it to take affect02:15
DulakSeanInSeattle: you are on ubuntu?02:15
coshxI'm debugging an upstart script, and it seems frozen when I all "sudo start myjob" or "sudo stop myjob" -- I can ctrl+c out of it, but have to reboot for it to stop freezing. ls -lrt in /var/log shows auth.log is most recently updated. any ideas?02:16
SeanInSeattleyes.  I'm on ubuntu 10.04, but its all commandline through ssh on my web server.02:16
greppySeanInSeattle: do you have another user on the system?02:17
SeanInSeattlegreppy:  Yes, I've got the root user.02:17
greppySeanInSeattle: so log in as root and do the adduser username admin02:18
SeanInSeattlegreppy:  though I don't have an "admin" group on the system.02:19
SeanInSeattlegreppy:  it says that I don't have an "admin" group on the system.02:19
DulakSeanInSeattle: you aren't in ubuntu then02:20
mattgyverSeanInSeattle, open /etc/sudoers in an editor, in the#user privelage specification duplicate the root line and change root to user02:20
tripelbI got an update notice today, After I clicked on do updates I get a window that tells me they cant be authenticated. What's up?02:21
DulakSeanInSeattle: ubuntu uses the admin group for sudo access, and you don't have one.  I suggest you get support from the appropriate distro support channel.02:21
Artemis3tripelb, did you try changing repository mirror?02:21
tripelbShould I update if it says "NOT  AUTHENTICATED" ? 10.0402:21
kiss1hello why we cant use a full login theme on ubuntu 10.4 ?02:21
kiss1like we were able to do in other older versions ?02:22
tripelbArtemis3, I know nothing about repository mirror.02:22
SeanInSeattlemattgyver:  Did that.  Now try logging inas the lower priv'd user and try sudo-ing?02:22
greppyDulak: he could be in ubuntu, it's a vps, perhaps the provider tweaked it.02:22
SeanInSeattlegreppy, exactly.02:22
mattgyverSeanInSeattle, yeah give it a whirl and see if it works for you02:22
SeanInSeattleits slicehost.02:22
kiss1hello why we cant use a full login theme on ubuntu 10.4 ?02:22
kiss1like we were able to do in other older versions ?02:22
SeanInSeattleThanks guys, gotta head out.  I appreciate it.02:22
SeanInSeattleexit02:22
Artemis3tripelb, i suggest you pick another mirror and try again... System -> Administration -> Software Sources02:23
Dulakgreppy: no, I'd bet money it's debian and not ubuntu.02:23
mattgyverkiss1, because GDM 2.30+  doesnt support that kind of theming02:23
kiss1so that mean we cant use a full login screen theme ?02:23
Artemis3tripelb, just cancel update manager for now02:23
mattgyverkiss1, view the post I just linked you, the PDF explains ways to theme it if you want to but its not as easy as before02:24
tripelbArtemis3, what is "unsupported updates (lucid-backports) "  that I have checked by default?02:25
mattgyverkiss1, I pm'd you the link i forgot to say that ;)02:25
greppyDulak: I was going to have him run "lsb_release -d" to find out :)02:25
Artemis3tripelb, thats ok, you can leave that enabled02:25
sam555is there an equivalent drive image program for Ubuntu like this one http://www.runtime.org/driveimage-xml.htm?02:26
lunksIs there anything similar to Rainlendar for Gnome?02:26
Artemis3tripelb, just avoid "proposed" ^^02:26
Braber01Can sombody explain !addfact to me? Im looking  at the documentation and I don't quite understand it.02:26
mattgyversam555, if your looking for a good imaging tool use clonezilla02:27
tripelbArtemis3, that's the same thing as the advanced button in the software updates window. It says nothing about mirrors. I'm afraid I dont know what to do.02:27
Artemis3tripelb, first tab02:27
sam555mattgyver: thanks!02:27

rlankfogreppy: one second02:29
tripelbArtemis3,  now since I chose Texas in Austin it's downloading package information.02:30

darkdelusionsDoes you bios have a boot menu where you can manually select what boots frist I know if I press esc on one machines it will give me a boot menu02:44
DarkRedmanYes I try it too by pressing F8 but it only detect CD drivers and Hard Drives but not USB drives02:45
Thund3rXHi all,02:45
DarkRedmanand I don't understand why because it worked few month ago and I actived all USB options to enabled like legacy USB support02:45
Thund3rXIn the Ubuntu 10.04 release, my Firefox doesn't submit the web page when clicking on a submit link02:46
darkdelusionsDarkRedman:  have you tried another jump drive02:46
Thund3rXchrome on the other hand works fine perfectly02:46
jdeloachCan somebody help me troubleshoot a Ubuntu server which sometimes boots, sometimes just hangs. When it boots, it fails a few hours later. I cannot SSH in, but it does respond toPings.02:46
Thund3rXDid anybody had the same behavior?02:46
aciculatry different usb ports, front,back, make sure usb is enabled in the bios, load bios defaults if you arent sure how, etc.02:46
Iorihello everyone02:47
aciculajdeloach: if its pingable but you cant login do you get a password prompt?02:47
Thund3rXJeloach, did you install the SSH Daemon to that server?02:47
aciculaior can you at least onnect to port 22?02:47
aciculawith something like netcat02:47
mamece2hello my dear friends02:47
jdeloachThund3rX it's installed. The console hangs too.02:48
aciculajdeloach: you mean open ssh sessions hang?02:48
jdeloachThund3rX I can hit enter and such and type and such, but it doesn't work.02:48
jdeloachacicula: No, system wide. Even at the server itself.02:48
Iorisorry first time using irc02:48
sacarlsonThund3rX: maybe some security setting?  it should pop up something telling what security hold it has hit.  firefox worked for me02:48

aciculaanything in the kernel logs?02:49

farangHello.  I have an amazon ec2 micro instance of lucid.  I have been using the instance since they launched and everything has been going great.  But I just rebooted and the system has hung ,it seems as though Ive hit bug #634102, but as Ive already rebooted Im not sure what I can do to get back in the machine -- any advice?02:49
DarkRedmanyou mean flash bios drive ?02:49
Artemis3jdeloach, did you do memtest, systester, etc?02:49
sacarlsonmamece2: I would think you should if you have a spare partition to install it in02:49
DulakIori: ssh is port 22: ssh hostnameoriphere02:50
jdeloachacicula: this has happened before, It rocked last install, but the OS HDD failed so I replaced it, with this install it sometimes works, like it did the install before last.02:50
Thre365iveWell, I tried to install a few minutes ago from the kernel, but when I got to the user license agreement, it just locked up. I restarted the machine & now it's giving me an error02:50
Thre365iveI can PM you the error, it's kinda long and I don't wanna clog up the chat02:50
mattgyvermamece2, sounds like you installed ubuntu to the entire drive.  You will have to resize it to free up the necessary space for bt4.02:50
jdeloachArtemis3: It worked great 2-3 weeks ago. It HAD been up for several months before I did a reinstall (and a new HDD)02:50
DarkRedmandarkdelusions: do you mean to flash bios ?02:50
jsecHi all. Is it safe to uninstall and reinstall MySQL on Lucid Server Edition?02:50
Dulakjsec02:51
Dulakjsec: yes even02:51
Artemis3jdeloach, nevertheless do the tests when you suspect (or suffer) instability02:51
darkdelusionsDarkRedman: No i ment have you tired another flash drive but ignore that question :)02:51
Iorisorry i'm completely new in irc....not sure what you mean02:51
DarkRedmanoh ok USB drive02:51
DarkRedmanI didn't because I've not more USB drive02:51
darkdelusionsDarkRedman: ya but I thought about that after the fact that shouldnt be the issue02:51
jdeloachArtemis3, I will if the system gets more desperate. Any ideas on trouble shooting within the OS itself? Such as log browsing?02:51

sacarlsonjsec: do you have your database files backed up? if nothing is using it why not?02:52
jdeloachArtemis, it responds to pings so it doesn't seem like a physical problem.02:52
DarkRedmanI'm bored I can't use last Live Ubuntu because I need to fix it a big problem on my HD with Ubuntu because canonical only sell assistance for one year and not for few bugs :(02:53
Thre365iveIDK how02:53
Thre365iveLike I said, complete noob02:53
jdeloachArtemis, I can do basic things like hit enter and such I doubt it is hard ware.02:53
DarkRedmanI'bve this huge problems since many days :'(02:53
jsecEverything is backed up remotely. I just bunged up the root password, and even the recovery steps didn't work. Trying to reinstall now.02:53
Artemis3jdeloach, interesting... just pings? when it happens did you try sysrq reset?02:53
coshxThre365ive: paste to ubuntu.patebin.com02:53
mamece2hi mattgyver, i have windows, i installed ubuntu and that made a partition for it, but when i tried to install BT4 i can edit only the new partition when it is ubuntu02:53
Ioriok02:53
DarkRedmanWhat I can do ?!02:53
jdeloachArtemis3, sysrq restart? The only way to restart it is with a Crtl+Alt+Delete or Power Cycle it.02:54
Dulakjsec: well that root password is kept in a database that won't be purged by a reinstall02:54
farangis there any way to revive a lucid image that has hung on boot due to a bug in cloud-init?  Seems like there is a fix if you have access to the machine, but what can I do?02:54
Artemis3jdeloach, ah then it works with plain ctrl alt del...02:54
jsecDulak: yeah i just found that out... :(02:54
jdeloachArtemis3, Do you agree it must be software?02:54
sacarlsonjsec: root password can't be too difficult to fix but if that might be easier02:54

Artemis3jdeloach, are you using a gui in that server?02:55
farangacicula: what do you mean by cd image?  This is running on Amazon EC202:55
darkdelusionsDarkRedman: You can try reseting the bios back to default or possible update the bios if your savvy enough02:55
Iorianyway...02:55
jdeloachArtemis3, no it's basically headless with a monitor I through on it for checking things if SSH isn't working or such.02:55
DarkRedmanI already reset it02:55
tripelbdulak, thanks for telling me. I have been using "power manager inhibitor" and I knew there must be a more adjustable way.02:55
jdeloachArtemis3, just standard console.02:55
mazzanethow do i make a ppp connection start on boot-up?02:56

Ioriit's not so clear....02:56
Dr_WillisDarkRedman:  it can be risky. Depends on the machine/mb/bios in place.02:56
Artemis3jdeloach, anything interesting in logs?02:56
aciculafarang: dunno then02:56

jdeloachArtemis3, I am not sure how to debug those logs as there is so much data. Would logs/things do I look for? I am fine with individual programs like Apache/Samba logs, but with system wide there is just so much info I am bad at searching.02:57
DarkRedman4GB RAM02:57
darkdelusionsDarkRedman:  if your not comfortable flashing the bio the only thing I would say is burn a CD02:57
Dr_WillisDarkRedman:  check the amibios/bios update pages. and their readmes.   Many MB's these days have a 'rescue' type bios option. in case of a failed flash.. but ive not heard the original problem.02:57
rdaviladoes anyone know how to execute a command after the shell has been loaded through this command: gnome-terminal --tab -e "cmd" ?02:57
DarkRedmanI can't burn a CD because I need LiveCD for that I've only one CD drive02:57
Artemis3maybe try to find the time of the lockup, in /var/log/messages02:57
jdeloachArtemis3, And use that time to look through dmesg or such?02:58
Iorim02:58
sacarlsonjsec: I'm sure you read something like this to reset the mysql password http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=17503502:58
Artemis3dmesg basically shows /var/log/messages02:58
rdavilaI wan to execute the "cmd" command after the new shell has ben created, after execute the command it should return me to the prompt02:58
jdeloachArtemis3, what would it show as a "lockup" any words it might be using? Just looking for critical things failing?02:59
jdeloachArtemis3, please PM any responses you have as I am going to my server room/extra room to look at the server, I wouldn't want to miss any of your advice.02:59

tripelbcaliari you have to just ask your question not ask if you can ask.03:01
DarkRedmandarkdelusions: How to get help from canonical without paying for one year but just to fix the current bugs, I asked it since 5 days on channel but no one knows03:01
caliari /join #ubuntu to join.  Register if you don't want to do this again: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet03:01
Artemis3tripelb, it seems you have a third party respository enabled03:01
caliarisorry03:01
darkdelusionsDarkRedman: That i know of there is not a way that what the IRC channel and Forums are for03:01
caliarierror that is giving me is that the partition is not valid03:01
tripelbArtemis3, OK so if I do?  I must have done that from the page called "What to do after you install ubuntu."  I followed a lot of their directions.03:02
darkdelusionsDarkRedman: if you dont pay for there help service then it community supported03:02
Artemis3tripelb, if you dont need that dropbox repository, you can untick that repository back in software sources and try again03:02
tripelbArtemis3, what is happening while I am getting all that stuff?  should I do that regularily?03:02
Roush427rHey, how do I partition my HDD for windows 7 through Ubuntu 10.10?03:02

DarkRedmanI'm going crazy, I can't use my Ubuntu and my important DATA to work03:03
Artemis3tripelb, if you add a third party repository, chances are you also need to add a key so it won't complain about untrusted sources03:03
caliarihello tripelb: can you help me out please03:03
IzinucsDarkRedman: you file bug reports on launchpad to make them aware of the issues you're having. you may find other reports dealing with your issues and possible solutions too.03:03
Dr_WillisOne reason not to use encrypted homes. i guess..03:03
DarkRedmanI can't file03:03
Dr_Willisbye all - work time03:03

Iorihow to add the equinox theme?03:14
crawlncaliari: does it boot to windows?03:14
xanguaIori: have you already opened that url and READ IT¡¿03:14
sacarlsonDarkRedman: pxe boot is boot from lan,  but if you don't have a secound computer to setup as a boot server then it's mute point.03:14
caliaricrawln: it will start up but will not let it read the live CD.. just give me the error message03:14
xanguaIori: equinox theme needs equinox engine, you can install both once you have added it's ppa03:14
DarkRedmanAnyway even with a second computer I would have to setup a boot server but it's too hard for me03:15
crawlncaliari: reburn the cd at low speed 4 or 8x03:15
Iorixangua: yes but some instructions are not clear and i dont understand since i'm a noobie03:15
DarkRedmanI can try to flash my bios but I don't want that my bios become broken :s03:15
crawlncaliari: my computer has that problem when burning inx cd's03:15
caliaricrawln: it is on a 4x now03:15
IzinucsIori: what's the link for the PPA?03:15
crawlncaliari: try DL the minimal cd then03:16
Iorippa is ppa:tiheum/equinox03:16
crawlncaliari: and burn it to see if it's a problem with the iso03:16
xanguaIori: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox equinox-theme equinox-ubuntu-theme03:16
caliaricrawln: the dos will not start up03:16
IzinucsIori: no... what's the web address for the main site of the ppa03:16

LicuadoraIs there a way to hide the side tool bar from Unity?03:18
LicuadoraIt's just that takes too much space03:18
DarkRedmansacarlson: why ?! It's not a problem of hard disk !03:18
xanguaLicuadora: no autohide if that's what your asking, neither hide; canonical already said it03:18
Iorixangua: thanks, it seemed to work. Before, I added it to my software sources apt field and the key as well but i didnt know how to install it03:18

mamece2how much gigas will i need for ubuntu?03:19
Iorixangua: what's with the command './configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation' ? Do i run this in the terminal?03:19
crawlncaliari: yes but if the laser is weak or the cdrom is old it affects the ability of the reading of the cd. had to swap out a cdrom that reads and writes for another one to get my server to boot03:19
DarkRedmansacarlson: it's USB drive that's is not supported not hard drive03:20

tripelbcaliari, I'd like to help you. someone else could do it better. To do that you should say something like: I have an ASUS laptop with (a dual boot windows-if that's true) with Ubuntu 10.04 (or whatever you have) and I'm in the middle of trying to install yadd yadda (or whatever you are doing) and (name what is happening while it is saying) it says "Partition now valid"  -- I would need that info and so would someoen else. --- I sure am03:30
tripelb more experienced in asking questions in here so I tell all that from the get-go.  AND dont put my name in the line so that everyone will see it.  (I'll see it too.)  ---  We'll get you fixed up!!03:30
aromanrealistically, what is the difference between an Ubuntu RC and the Ubuntu GM? Any reason I shouldn't consider them equal?03:31

BinaryManas in something like echo "1000" > /dev/system/bus/usb/usb004/power03:32
caliaricrawln: could the hard drive be the problem?03:33
DarkRedmanI need to burn a LiveCD at least or make my LiveUSB workin' then I could fix (perhaps) the bug about ecryptfs and the erase .Private folder03:33
BinaryMani doubt that's an actual path, but something along those lines.03:33
KennyXYZhello03:33
DarkRedmanactually I can't burn a CD because I need the LiveCD gor that and I've only one CD drive03:33
Artemis3tripelb, thats becoming philosophical ^^'03:33
sacarlsonDarkRedman: well how are you going to burn a cd if it is the only way you can boot?03:33
DarkRedmanand I would like help from canonical because most of time some people says me to make things which make more errors on my ubuntu03:34
caliaricrawln: could the hard drive be the problem?03:34
DarkRedmanthe only way is to install another Ubuntu to burn a new cd the problem is about grub03:34

DarkRedmanDatz: that's not the problem of linux at all03:34

mauve_1105How do I find out my default gateway?03:35
tripelbArtemis3, I dont know. I'm just a dim bulb in a dark room. <-- now that's metaphorical.03:35
DarkRedmansacarlson: when I've 2 grubs it can overloads which one other03:35
Artemis3DarkRedman, normally you can just put a live cd and start from it, or an usb stick with the live cd image and fix it03:35
DarkRedmanyes but my live cd is not up to date (as the tools to repair)03:35
Dulakmauve_1105: 'route -n' should show it03:35
DarkRedmanand if I upgrade it I use all my RAM so it lags so much03:35

DarkRedmanon another HD ?!03:36
Datztripelb: try a book03:36
tripelbright datz, or a website.03:36
Datzsure03:36
mauve_1105Dulak: what can I do if my gateway is "0.0.0.0"? :(03:36
tripelblike I've never looked at one.03:36
pozicanWhere is the log that will tell me what packages were recently installed / removed using apt?03:37
Datztripelb: why are you asking?03:37
ccwso here's another issue I haven't been able to make any progress with:  if I use any of the function or special keys on my keyboard (one of those wireless usb jobs) the left mouse button stops working, though I can still move it, right click, and scroll.  Neither restarting the mouse or logging in and out resolves the issue, only a full reboot.03:37
Artemis3DarkRedman, i guess you could try the ubuntu 10.10 image, if you use the an usb stick, do NOT use persistence when creating the boot disk03:37
ccwanyone had similar problems?03:37
Dulakmauve_1105: that's means it's to itself, the one in that list that starts with 0.0.0.0 is the default gateway03:37
DarkRedmanArtemis3: it's that I tried but it doesn't boot, my BIOS doesn't detect it even if I enabled USB legacy support (for booting)03:38
DarkRedmanand I set USB drives as first boot option03:38
Datzpozican: you could try to generate a file with all the installed packages -> dpkg --get-selections > installed-software03:38
sacarlsonDarkRedman: at this point I guess that's what I would do.  stick an old hard disk in pull out or don't mount your present disks.  install ubuntu you have on the old disk, burn a new cd with what you want on it.  move on03:38
pozicanDatz: I'm more worried about what was removed in the last 10 minutes  ;)03:38
IConrad01Ah, fuckit.  I guess I have to reboot.03:38
Datzpozican: ah, I see03:38
DarkRedmansacarlson: I gonna try, see you soon I hope ;)03:38
Artemis3DarkRedman, isnt there a key for boot menu when you turn on the machine?03:38
DarkRedmanArtemis3: no :s03:39
DarkRedmaneven with manual boot F8 command03:39
pozicanDatz: seems most distros and pkg management keep a log - Yum for example, I guess I just assumed apt would, being fairly mature03:39
mauve_1105Dulak: when I try to ping the default gateway, it just says "Do you want to ping broadcast? Then -b" -- I'm just trying to ping the wireless router.03:39
tripelbBecause I'm not understanding what I'm doing. I followed what someone said. it failed. Now I'm getting a "duplicate sources" when what I did was change my software sourced to u-texas. when that failed I turned it back to United States server. --- I am trying to do the software update that the Updater told me about today.03:39
DarkRedmanI try to install a new Ubuntu with forcing current HD to not endamage my current Ubuntu03:39

pozicanDatz: apt-get remove03:40
sacarlsonDarkRedman: good luck03:40
IConrad01Well, I guess a reboot it is.03:40
IConrad01>_<03:40
Dulakmauve_1105: pastebin the output of the 'route -n' command: http://pastebin.com03:40
Datzpozican: there should be a log of all the commands you've issued in your home dir03:40
tripelbDarkRedman, I'm of a simple mind but you know you have to do it on a different partition, right?03:40
pozicanDatz: Sure, but that won't help in the case of apt-get remove ati* instead of ati-*03:40
mauve_1105Dulak, one moment please, gotta type it out. the machine is beside me.03:41

tripelbdatz, I switched to main server and it tells me it cant get a key for dropbox, again. Artimis3 told me to take dropbox off some list but I have no idea how to make this happen.03:42
KennyXYZaptitude is better03:42
Dulakaroman: they are both old, one just resolves dependencies better (aptitude)03:42
tripelbsarcarlson: He really really wants to learn. I like his style.03:42
Izinucsaroman: 'bout the same.. just depends on which one you like.. KennyXYZ says aptitude is better but that *use to be true*.. they are both pretty much the same now.03:43
Datzpozican: I guess you could search for packages, and see what might have been removed...03:43
aromanDulak, Really? Isn't aptitude being removed from Ubuntu?03:43
sacarlsontripelb: only way to learn for me is have nothing to fear and nothing to loose03:43
mauve_1105Dulak: http://pastebin.com/m9uKa2ij (btw, I can authenticate fine with WEP/WEP2 and I have full bars in terms of signal strength -- it's just that FF won't load internet pages)03:43
Dulakapt-get still won't give you multiple options for resolving a dep problem but aptitude will03:43
Datzpozican: something like aptitude search ati-*03:43
ccwwould somebody mind saying 'ping' or something, just so I know I'm actually getting messages through?  Not trying to be a jerk, I promise, just relatively new to irc...03:44
KennyXYZaptitude updates the dependencies03:44
Dulakmauve_1105: 'sudo route add default gw ipaddressofgatewayhere'03:44
Datzccw: we hear ya03:44
tripelbKennyXYZ, why is aptitude better?  I'm pretty nubie but I started using apt-get instead of Synaptic because Synaptic never works for me. Really never. I'd use CLI a lot if I knew what I was doing.  (looking for the name of something free to learn from, preferably html) -03:44
ccwsweet, thanks03:44
aromanSo is there a drawback to aptitude, then? Surely it's being replaced by apt-get for a reason..03:44
tripelbsacarlson read what I said just above to KennyXYZ03:44
Izinucstripelb: synaptic and apt-get and aptitude go to the same place.. and use dpkg to install stuff.. if you can't install from synaptic then there are other issues.03:45
Dulakaptitude will give you many options for a dependency conflict, apt-get only gives you one option, and it's not always the right solution for your problem.03:46
KennyXYZcan i post a link in here?03:46
Izinucssure03:46
tripelbIzinucs, yes, like I dont know how to use synaptic and it annoys me.03:46
AbhiJitKennyXYZ, yes pastabinit it03:46
tripelbdulak, thanks for that explanation.03:46
sacarlsontripelb: ya why would synaptic not work and apt-get work?  you run a server with no xserver running?03:46
LxndrI am having trouble with Sound Recorder. It seems to record sounds coming in, but then when I try to play the file/recording back, it gives me an error: "Failed to connect stream: too large." How can I make this work?03:47
KennyXYZhere is a good link to read about it03:47
KennyXYZhttp://pthree.org/2007/08/12/aptitude-vs-apt-get/03:47
mauve_1105Dulak: I typed "sudo add default gw 192.168.1.254" and got "SIOADDRT: No such process" -- ???03:47
IzinucsKennyXYZ: that's an old link03:47
tripelbsacarlson, No. I am the problem. , like I dont know how to use synaptic and it annoys me.03:47
DatzKennyXYZ: ha, I just read that03:47
fuzzybunny69yhey everyone! I started a program and told it to run in the background by using a & at the end of the command but for some reason it is still showing output from the program when i am using a terminal. Does anyone know how to stop it from doing this?03:47
KennyXYZyes, it is an old link03:48
DatzI always thought aptitude would be the successor to apt-get, then then agian I don't know what time period they originated03:48
hiexposynaptic is ure friend03:48
Dulakmauve_1105: sorry forgot the interface: 'sudo route add default gw ipaddresshere ra0'03:48
sacarlsontripelb: I use both but mostly synaptic.  I like to see this list of apps to choose from.  I don't use aptitude much.  but they all work03:48
IvisCan i upgrade to 10.10 alredy ?03:49
Datzis it cool to spell things wrong now? :p03:49
DrDamnitDarkRedman: gtk-recordmydesktop works great! How do I get it to only do one monitor though? (Or one application) select window either doesn't work, or I am not doing it right....03:49
linusasus6yeah I love synaptic you can install all dependenty but from the deposit only if is not in deposit then you need terminal03:49

aromanlinusasus6, RC03:51
tripelbthere's a channel for that03:51
aromanOh wow guys, aptitude is FAR superior to apt.. that article blew my mind.03:51
aromannever knew aptitude was so capable!03:52
Datzthe things it can do!03:52
Izinucstripelb: have you tried sudo apt-get install -f to see if it will fix problems?03:52
aromannow im boggled by WHY on earth ubuntu dropped it!03:52
mauve_1105Dulak: nope, not yet. I don't think I have the network administrator that most people use -- I have "Preferences -> Network Connections" but nothing under "System -> Administration"03:52
bobstroaroman:  link?03:52
KennyXYZapt-get is still good03:53
Datzaroman: it is dropped in 10.10?03:53
aromanbobstro, It's a well known fact I thought, I'll look03:53
Dulakbecause they are retarded about cli stuff.  They feel the new software center is good enough03:53
bobstroaroman:  oh, thought you just read something. i did have problems several years ago that aptitude handled better.03:53
DulakI know I'll be installing aptitude first thing on a new install03:53
DatzI guess you can always apt-get install aptitude?03:53
Datzlol03:53
aromanoh please. the software center is OK, but it needs another two releases of work to be able to match apt-get and aptitude03:53
aromanDatz, lol03:53
tripelbIzinucs, what does that statement do?03:54
tripelblooks at man file Izinucs03:54
KennyXYZwell, apt-get wouldn't delete your dependenices... it would work great for newbies. and they wouldn't stress out about a missing dependencies03:54

tripelbstaz that's what I am looking at.03:55
Izinucstripelb: it tries to fix whatever might be wrong with apt or the package manager..03:55
linusasus6Please I want to understand why when I plug earphone in jack sound is in earphone and in speaker in same time thank you! ;)03:55
aromanDatz, Why?03:55
tripelbdatz that's what I am looking at.03:56
Datzaroman: because I don't like upgrading03:56
DatzI'm going to leave my ubuntu-server install for 5 years :p03:56
aromanDatz, Really? Upgrading is the best part of Linux! :)03:56

tripelbaroman: datz - I went through changing my software sources (someone called it picking a different mirror) and I removed one of the software sources. So far. --- will look at the man file again.04:02
aromantripelb, why would you do that..?04:02
aarcaneKennyXYZ, dell mini 10v works perfectly (including wifi, bluetooth, webcam), whereas the asus T91-SA doesn't work because of the GMA500 chipset.04:02
KennyXYZhaha aww04:03

aemaethok, autoremove is what i needed for second part, but when i did upgrade there is still 3 left, not sure what to do04:37

pseudosudoAbhiJit, the problem is that I had Windows XP installed before and I installed ubuntu after. I decided to turn my system into just a ubuntu system so I deleted my Windows XP Partition. What I'm left with is "Unallocated" empty space before my ubuntu partition that I can't grow/merge to05:01
pLrDaveWM: did u empty /etc/X11/default-display-manager ?05:01
Dulakvic20gmr: they assume you're guilty until you prove otherwise05:01
pseudosudoSo I'm guessing my other option is to make a new partition and move it all over05:02
vic20gmr?05:02
AbhiJitpseudosudo, you can grow ubuntu partition to taht empty space using gparted05:02
four2zerohello to all, i have an existing samba server running on ubuntu-server 10.4 and i have installed jolicloud on a acer netbook, and would like to give it access to the files on that server, how can i make this work ?05:02
AbhiJitpseudosudo, you must use live cd for this task05:02
DarkRedmanWhat I can doo ?!05:02
AbhiJitpseudosudo, you can do this while you are running ubuntu05:02
AbhiJite05:02
pseudosudoAbhiJit, yes i've been using the live CD. Apparently you cannot grow to unallocated space that is "before" the ubuntu partition05:02
pseudosudoI do not have the option05:03
AbhiJitpseudosudo, you can move that space after the ubuntu05:03
Aemaethafter sudo apt-get dist-upgrade it only boots into grub menu :(((05:03

AbhiJitAemaeth, http://blog.bodhizazen.net/linux/apt-get-how-to-fix-very-broken-packages/05:04
IzinucsAemaeth: that happened to me because of a kernel update.. do this full line in one shot and reboot when done.. see if it fixes it.. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade05:04
vic20gmris it illeagal for usa residents to install/use gstreamer?05:05
AemaethIzinucs, i need to get into linux to do that05:05
Izinucsvic20gmr: I use it.. so far the software police haven't caught me.05:05
AbhiJitpseudosudo, first unmount both. then useing mouse drag the ubuntu partition to the unallocated space manually it will take ages depending on size of ubuntu partition then you will be able to increase ubuntu partition to taht right side unallocated space05:05
vic20gmrgood for u, but that is an answer to another question05:06

pseudosudoAbhiJit, thanks I'll try it now05:06
IzinucsAemaeth: wait.. killed your grub? ouch.. shouldn't have.. you'll have to chroot with a live cd to fix.. but I don't have the knowledge to do that from memory.05:06
CyberRatpseudosudo and backup first05:06
AbhiJitpseudosudo, hmm05:06
AbhiJitpseudosudo, how much is your ubutu partition size05:07
pseudosudoCyberRate and AbhiJit, Yes I already imaged my ubuntu partition to another HDD just incase. But the funny thing is when I try to boot off that hard disk, ubuntu does not boot up. Something about UUID05:07
vic20gmrfour2zero, is ilegal for a usa resident to use it?05:07
AemaethIzinucs, i tried manually booting my image, but it said 'No kernal found"05:07
AbhiJitpseudosudo, hmm backup is important in such operations.05:07
CyberRat2 partitions with same UUID :)05:07
four2zeroyes, its legal for us resident to use05:07
four2zeroopensource is free to use.05:07
IzinucsAemaeth: if it's a grub issue that would make sense.. it doesn't know where to find the kernel.05:08
rwwfour2zero apparently doesn't know about software patents.05:08
Aemaethso i can't manually get it in this grub menu shell thing i have?05:08

CyberRatk05:08
vic20gmrrww, i take it it *is* ilegal for usa resident to use?05:08

Aemaethrww, all the best legal advice comes from irc or 4chan05:09
four2zerowhy would it be illegal for a us resident to use....?05:09
IzinucsAemaeth: if it dumped you to a grub shell then I'll have ubottu send a link. do you know if you're using grub 1 or 2.. fresh install of 10.04 would put grub2 on05:09

ncxcudehelp please? wine problem... and how to upgrade ubuntu 10.04 - ubuntu 10.10 :)05:51
maco!10.10 | ncxcude05:51
ubottuncxcude: Maverick Meerkat is the codename for Ubuntu 10.10, due October 2010 - Maverick is NOT released and NOT Stable, discussion and support in #ubuntu+105:51
CyberRatncxcude maybe wait till the final release?05:51
glebihanncxcude: your upgrade question should go to #ubuntu+105:51
itsux2busebikul, what hardware..?  that box is just cpu, ram and ports05:52
itsux2buis an intel Atom CPU supported by ubuntu?05:53
spinningcompassitsux2bu: Yes.05:53
ncxcudeok.. not the upgrade? but how to make wine works... im install MS Office 2007 and wine is not response anything. any sugesstion?05:53
sebikulexactly, not all features of the cpu or other included pieces may be able to work 100%, they may have some features disabled05:53
itsux2buram is ram.. hard drives are generic..05:53
glebihanncxcude: you have about no chance to make ms office work with wine...05:54
sebikulncxcide, to upgrade just run #update-manager -d05:54

glebihanicarus-c: really ?05:55
icarus-cncxcude, just follow the instructions on ms office 2007 page at wine app db05:55
glebihanicarus-c: wouldn't have thought it'd be possible05:55
icarus-cglebihan, limited functionality though, but all i use works fine05:55
Spyzer<CyberRat>: thanks for the bash commands any list of gui utils default in ubuntu??05:56
glebihanicarus-c: good to know05:56
sebikulitsux2bu its not just ram, it has to support the video card (and have its drivers) the audio card, the ethernet port, usb, etc05:56

nhorning1had a team take it away and the battery ran out06:09
glebihanTheEvilPhoenix: it should have06:09
icarus-cTheEvilPhoenix, yes, you put grub to MBR, and then chainload Windows boot loader on windows' partition06:09
nhorning1No when I try to boot through grub I get "no init found. Try passing init= bootarg06:09
nhorning1also, I can't boot with live usb stick06:09

nhorning1Is anybody here dealing with me, or was that just a bot that asked for details?06:12
TheEvilPhoenixglebihan: icarus-c:  do I need to define which partiton gets teh boot flag?06:12
xeuseful to use defrag first on the windows partition... to put all the data at the start.06:12
icarus-cTheEvilPhoenix, Windows need that i think. but linux doesn't06:12
TheEvilPhoenixnhorning1: a user used the bot's factoids to facilitate transferring information06:12
techbreakTheEskimo, icarus-c ,how can i resize partition without affecting the available files?06:12
TheEvilPhoenixicarus-c: so i don't need to redefine which gets the boot flag to use the boot loader?06:12
glebihanTheEvilPhoenix: I don't think so (none of mine have that flag)06:12
TheEvilPhoenixs/boot\ loader/grub/06:12
TheEvilPhoenixokay after my partitions resize i'll reboot (seems 100MB got left behind in the install as unallocated space x])06:13
icarus-ctechbreak, you could use your favourite partitioning tool on Windows (actually Windows Vista and above got built in resize function)   and ubuntu's installer should have resize function too if i remember correctly06:13
icarus-cTheEvilPhoenix, just leave it06:13
Steristhow does btrFS compare to ext4 on a scale of -5 to +5 ?06:13

techbreakicarus-c, what is that tool? is it default in window viesta? please tell me. I am a beginner06:14
Steristicarus-c its going to be in 10.1006:14
icarus-cSterist, if you can stand data lose or file system corruption or any crap, go btrfs06:14
Steristlo06:14
Steristlol'06:14
nhorning1glebihan: did you want my details personally? or were you just saying that in general06:15
rwwSterist: It's still not as stable as I'd like. I don't plan on using it for a while.06:15
icarus-cSterist, not sure how btrfs status is currently, but at least 10.10 will be shipping a newer linux kernel06:15
itsux2buok.. i recently stumbled upon these ultra low-end bare bones boxes from Foxconn and MSI with intel atom CPUs..  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856119027 and http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883152008.. which are even cheapter than netbooks.. and a great way to get my toes into *nix..  but has "ubuntu" tested any of these type of units and provide an06:15
itsux2buapproved list?06:15

Steristyes, 2.6.3506:15
glebihannhorning1: that was a general remark, you're more likely to get help if you ask a precise question06:15
sebikulpseudosudo, the best one right now is ext3, ext4 is experimental and can produce data loss06:15
apple_catHi, I'm trying to get a elantech touchpad working on my laptop (ASUS ul 30). Could someone help me out with this? So far I have tried to enable the shmconfig option in xorg.conf but that stops my system from booting06:15
xetechbreak ... defrag your harddrive in windows. put in ubuntu disc... choose install ... this should enable you to resize the parition and install ubuntu on it. (leaving windows in place)06:15
rwwitsux2bu: http://webapps.ubuntu.com/certification/06:16

ubottuitsux2bu: For lists of supported hardware on Ubuntu see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport - To help debugging and improving hardware detection, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingHardwareDetection06:16
icarus-ctechbreak, in vista, first do a disk defrag (this allow you to shrink more space), then go  Disk management and click a bit you could resize the partition. for detail you better ask in ##windows06:16
techbreakbut I have only c drive in my laptop. if i do partition wont i loose it?06:16
slacker-anyone experienced with mdadm, please? trying to recover a clean,degraded raid5 with read errors06:17
icarus-ctechbreak, you have to shrink it to give space for new partitions, right?06:17
nhorning1glebihan: Well, anyway to get someones attention? because I typed out the details but I'm not sure if anyone noticed.06:17
pseudosudosebikul, so if I was just to build a simple file server or something like that I should use ext3?06:17
techbreakicarus-c, i have alot of free space in c drive06:17
techbreakicarus-c, i44 out of 287 gb is free for me :)06:18
icarus-ctechbreak, well, but the "C" partition span across the whole disk (besides Recover partition) right?06:18
Steristapple_cat you are unable to use the mouse at all?06:18
nhorning1I'll try again, no init found06:18
techbreakicarus-c, now how do i separate 100 gb for ubuntu ?06:18
nhorning1"no init found" can anyone help with that?06:18
icarus-ctechbreak, but any partitioning operation has a risk (although very low),  backup your important data before hand06:18
techbreakicarus-c, yeah beside recovery partition i have only c partition06:18
icarus-ctechbreak, 100GB for ubuntu is way too much..........06:18
Subdolus'evening all06:18
sebikulpseudosudo: yeah, that would be the best choice06:18
icarus-ctechbreak, ubuntu itself typically use <15GB06:18
aromanWhat happens when a linux version gets EOL'd?06:18
icarus-caroman, no more updates for it06:19
techbreakicarus-c, i mean 20 gb for ubuntu and a new partition for my data 80 gb06:19
icarus-caroman, from Linux or the distro06:19
Steristand repositories go offline, right?06:19
rww!eol06:19
ubottuEnd-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/EOLUpgrades06:19
rwwSterist: They get moved off the mirrors to http://old-releases.ubuntu.com06:19
pseudosudosebikul, If I added another hard drive and formatted it entirely to ext3, is there anyway I can like auto-mount it or something on start up. Or treat it as a part of my current drive, like another folder or something?06:19
icarus-ctechbreak, yea so shrink 100GB from C drive06:19
aromanicarus-c, Other than that? Like what happens to the repos?06:20
Steristrww ooh i searched like hell for that answer a while ago lol06:20
icarus-ctechbreak, a quick google search give me this http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/resize-a-partition-for-free-in-windows-vista/06:20
techbreakicarus-c, you mean i put the ubuntu installation cd. select install and then when disk partition comes i separate 20 gb from there?06:20
Steristrww so would you have to manually add that URL to software sources?06:20
icarus-ctechbreak, but of course i don't gurantee anything, don't blame me if anything goes wrong :P06:20
itsux2buwhats  remix?  that different the LiveUSB?06:20
SubdolusI have a simple bash script to run an rsync backup daily with cron... The receiving machine does not have X, but I really want to somehow force the script to magically appear on my console when it runs automatically by cron06:21
sebikulpseudosudo, have a look at this docs (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InstallingANewHardDrive) (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab)06:21
techbreakicarus-c, that made me sacre06:21
icarus-ctechbreak, make very sure you do partitioning before installing06:21
rwwSterist: Preferably, you'd follow the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades and move to something supported.06:21
Subdolusis there any way to do that? set up a cron job for a script, that will appear on the console06:21
icarus-ctechbreak, well, as all software license states that the software comes with absolutely no guarantee  :P06:21
Subdoluswith screen maybe?06:21
techbreakicarus-c, i will surely do partitioning but i am afraid if i loose windows06:21
gbear14275I just updated my kernel to -25 and I got the following messages during the removal of my -24 kernel files...  Can anyone tell me whats up with them?  http://pastebin.com/LjMaq1Hw06:22
Steristrww my ps3 is running ubuntu 9.10 and it doesnt seem to like 10.04, so it's going to EOL ;)06:22
icarus-ctechbreak, it should be safe. otherwise Vista wouldn't have a built in resize function right? :)06:22
aromanSubdolus, I too have wondered about that .. I'd be very interested in how that would work.06:22
icarus-ctechbreak, and just make sure you don't tell ubuntu to overwrite windows, you will be fine06:22
techbreakicarus-c, ok one question. what if i delete the recovery drive and put ubuntu there?06:22
Subdolusaroman: how awesome would it be06:22
techbreakicarus-c, i wont do that.. :) :)06:22
gbear14275mainly these three lines I see repeated when update-grub runs... File descriptor 40 (/var/lib/apt-xapian-index/index.2/postlist.DB) leaked on lvs invocation. Parent PID 3760: /bin/sh06:23
icarus-ctechbreak, i guess that recovery partition is some OEM stuff that let you do 1-key recovery or stuff like that.  so if you interrupt it you may lose that functionality06:23
Subdolussomething like "firefox --display:0:0" or whatever that switch is, for sending an app to X06:23
gbear14275File descriptor 42 (pipe:[12986]) leaked on lvs invocation. Parent PID 3760: /bin/sh06:23
gbear14275File descriptor 44 (/var/log/apt/term.log) leaked on lvs invocation. Parent PID 3760: /bin/sh06:23
Steristrww update manager fails and restores to previous state, and CD installer hangs at random points or randomly wont start06:23
Subdolusbut without X06:23
pehdendumbest question ever  what do i type it term to see every drive as in what directory there linked to06:23
aromanSubdolus, Yup. I've got a script that basically "nudges" my ext. HDs every so often to prevent them from auto-sleeping, and I made it show a little log of its progress.. shame I can't see it :D06:23
techbreakicarus-c, but i wont loose windows right?06:23
Steristrww with my laptop though, its no problemo :)06:23
icarus-ctechbreak, 99%  No you won't lose windows06:24
Subdolusaroman: neat06:24
pehdenlike ifconfig shows all the network cards06:24
Subdolusthat's another idea for my NAS heh, thatd be cool too06:24
techbreakicarus-c, why that 1% less?06:24
pehdenwhats the one for devices06:24
nhorning1ok back06:24
rwwpehden: mount06:24
Subdoluspausewhile watching a movie sucks06:24
Subdoluspause while *06:24
pehdenrww that shows the devices/drives06:25
Steristtechbreak deleting the recovery partition is extremely ill-advised06:25
nhorning1"No init found"  and for some reason I can't boot using a live usb06:25
aromanSubdolus, Actually, now that I think about it, I should rewrite it in python or something to throw in an OSD-Notify thing.06:25
nhorning1any takers?06:25
pehdenrww thanks'06:25
apple_catSterist: No I can use the mouse it's just I can't adjust the settingss06:25
icarus-ctechbreak, like there could be faulty disk, random error,  software bug, and other factor (like a power cut during resize operation..)06:25
techbreakSterist, then please advie how do i do it?06:25
aromanSubdolus, you know it.. I steam 1080p from my computer over WiFi and the video freezes every so often for the damned spin down.. without my script.06:25
icarus-ctechbreak, but i haven't failed any disk operation so far.06:26
techbreakicarus-c, power cut wont be a problem... i am in laptop06:26
slacker-any suggestions where I could ask for help with mdadm?06:26
slacker-irc preferably06:26
Steristtechbreak 1% less because there's always the off-chance that the planets will all align and create a 5x eclipse causing the moon to collide with earth and crash your hard drive... or something like that06:26
icarus-ctechbreak, if you really don't feel comfortable... make a backup of the disk before hand.  or use a usb drive to install linux ?06:26
icarus-ctechbreak, or use WUBI to install ubuntu inside windows?06:26
aromantechbreak, +1 for Wubi and backups.06:27
shawnboyAfter latest Update Manager updates, Firefox scrolls in slow motion. Anyone know how to fix this?06:27
techbreakaroman, icarus-c i dont want inside windows06:27
techbreakSterist, hahaha good one06:27
icarus-calthough i don't really like wubi much (problem tends to happen with wubi after a while..)06:27
Steristapple_cat type " touch " in the software center and see if anything that comes up sounds fit for your problems06:27
aromantechbreak, Then you're not familiar with WUBI :) It doesn't install it _inside_ windows, it installs it nearly the same as dual boot.. you don't boot to windows to launch it and it runs at native speeds.06:27
Steristwubi is trash. you get about 75% or less of your CPU's power towards ubuntu06:28
Dulakshawnboy: in firefox go to Edit->Preferences->Advanced and uncheck smooth scrolling06:28
aromanwoah now06:28
techbreakaroman, I want it in separate partition...06:28
aromanare you talking from hands on exp?t06:28
icarus-ctechbreak, afaik,  wubi make a image file inside your windows drive to install ubuntu there, modify windows boot loader to let it boot ubuntu too, then register wubi to Windows installed applications06:28
aromantechbreak, well then WUBI isn't the right move.06:28
Steristtechbreak, which windows are you using?06:29
icarus-cvista06:29
nhorning1Alright someone please let me know if the can help with "no init found"06:29
techbreakSterist, viesta06:29
EvilPhoenixicarus-c:  i figured out something06:29
icarus-cEvilPhoenix, huh?06:29

EvilPhoenixicarus-c:  i'm TheEvilPhoenix06:29

Steristtechbreak hmm that makes things a little more complicated, have you checked how much space you have available to shrink your windows partition by?06:30
shawnboyDulak, thanks. That seemed to help, although it makes me wonder why that is required. Either way, thanks for the tip.06:30
nhorning1icarus-c: I believe so06:30
icarus-cEvilPhoenix, oh really..06:30
EvilPhoenixicarus-c:  mhm06:30
EvilPhoenixleaving the Windows partition set it booted to that06:30
Dulakshawnboy: it's annoying to me too, first thing I turn off on a new firefox install06:30
EvilPhoenixand now Grub06:30
nhorning1icarus-c: there was a kernel panic this morning06:30
apple_catSterist: Sorry I don't understand what you mean, where is "software center"06:30
icarus-cnhorning1, did you mess with kernel parameter (specifically init= ) ?06:30
EvilPhoenix*shrugs*06:30
EvilPhoenixmaybe its just being evil06:30
techbreaki have 144 gb of 287 gb free in c drive06:31
nhorning1icarus-c: I tried to pass init=bootarg06:31
shawnboygoodbye all.06:31
techbreakSterist, i have 144 gb of 287 gb free in c drive06:31
LinXzapple_cat: it's in the Application menu06:31
Steristapple_cat i use xubuntu, so under this desktop environment it's in "Applications" but still called Ubuntu Software Center06:31
nhorning1icarus-c: but thats it06:31
icarus-cnhorning1, well.... why did you do that06:31
glebihannhorning1: sorry, system crashed, didn't see what you told me06:31
sidhi06:31
icarus-cnhorning1, init= specify the program to execute after kernel boot06:32
Steristtechbreak okay but have you used vista's device manager to check how much space it can be shrunk by?06:32
techbreakSterist, no i dont know to do that06:32
icarus-cnhorning1, you know, after kernel boot,  kernel will pass to Init,  if Init fail (not found in your case),  kernel panic :)06:32
nhorning1icarus-c: I only did that after I got the error and it said try init=bootarg06:32
Steristtechbreak standby, i'll look up how to do that on vista06:32
techbreakSterist, okei :)06:33
icarus-cnhorning1, i'm pretty sure you don't have  the program "bootarg" , hence init not found06:33
nhorning1glebihan: thanks, I've got "no init found" after grub06:33
icarus-cnhorning1, try remove the init option06:33
nhorning1icarus-c: in grub?06:33
Steristtechbreak for starters, open Start --> Control Panel06:33
sidi have install 10.04 when i restart machine it gives error kernel panic what is that06:33
nhorning1icarus-c: I'm not sure you understand what happened06:34
icarus-cnhorning1, yes?  or simply change it at boot time first.06:34
techbreakSterist, go on06:34
nhorning1icarus-c: I didn't change anything before this problem happened06:34
LinXzhas anyone had this problem: When using apt-get autoremove, it removes other packages (like Wine, that I am installing again now, because it was removed...)06:34
nhorning1icarus-c: I only tried passing init=bootarg after I got "No init found"06:35
icarus-cnhorning1, well but i know  "init=bootarg" is just wrong.06:35
Steristtechbreak found the page, 1sec while i find the area that tells how to check06:35
nhorning1icarus-c: yeah, so I'm not doing that anymore06:35
icarus-cnhorning1, that message is telling you to pass something  to   "init=" because kernel couldn't find  /sbin/init06:35
apple_catSterist: Ohh I'm on KDE and usually use aptitude or apt-get, there aren't any packages with 'touch' in the name that look like they will fix the problem. There are a few guides but the ones that are for newer versions of ubuntu say to add the 'shmconfig on' option into xorg.conf06:35
icarus-cbut not meant to  ask you to enter  "init=bootarg"06:35
techbreakSterist, sure... i am waiting06:35
nhorning1icarus-c: ok,  thanks06:36
nhorning1icarus-c: so what should I try doing?06:36
icarus-cnhorning1, did you change anything else for kernel parameter?06:36
apple_catSterist: Which would be fine, but there isn't one by defualt so I need to generate a working one and then add the option because just having an xorg.conf with one option seems to stop the computer from booting06:36
DulakLinXz: use deborphan and manually remove deps, apt-get is not good with autoremove, for just the reason you stated06:36
bluegoonHi guys, can Ubuntu Server be joined to a Windows domain?06:36
icarus-cnhorning1, it  is due to /sbin/init not found,  so i suppose there is a file system/disk error or  you pass a wrong "root" to kernel06:37
sidi have install 10.04 when i restart machine it gives error kernel panic what is that06:37
sidi have install 10.04 when i restart machine it gives error kernel panic what is that06:37
nhorning1icarus-c: I think it's a disk error06:37
icarus-cnhorning1, maybe start with doing a force disk check06:37
macobluegoon: i think you need openldap to talk to AD, but you can double check in #ubuntu-server06:37
macosid: its like a blue screen of death06:37
LinXzDulak: Thanks! It's been a problem for me; installed programs are removed...06:37
bluegoonThanks maco06:37
icarus-cnhorning1, fsck -f /dev/<your_disk>06:37
nhorning1icarus-c: ok, how do I do that06:37
sidmaco so whats the solution06:37
Steristapple_cat i'm not familiar with KDE at all :( sorry06:37
icarus-cnhorning1, boot with a live cd06:37
nhorning1icarus-c: I've tried that06:37
vincent_arderndoes anyone know what software ubuntu brainstorm is based on?06:38
nhorning1icarus-c: I get a different error06:38
=== sid is now known as riya
Steristtechbreak click Administrative Tools --> Disk Management Tool06:38
DulakLinXz: yeah it's aggressive, with deborphan you can decide what really isn't needed anymore instead of letting apt-get decide for you06:38
icarus-cnhorning1, then  fsck  -f  all your ubuntu partitions06:38
riyai have install 10.04 when i restart machine it gives error kernel panic what is that06:38
riyai have install 10.04 when i restart machine it gives error kernel panic what is that06:38
nhorning1icarus-c: something about not being able to boot sda06:38
Steristtechbreak tell me when done06:38
icarus-cnhorning1, um. what error, when you get that?06:38
EvilPhoenixriya:  it means that the kernel is broken06:38
icarus-cnhorning1, um when you boot with a livecd, it should matter even you don't have a disk06:38
nhorning1icarus-c: somthing about not being able to boot sda06:38
nhorning1icarus-c: tell me about it06:38
macoriya: figure out what bit of hardware it doesnt like and get rid of it?  i mean it could just not like the combo of your bios and 4gb of ram (yes ive seen that) in which case yanking out a stick of ram could do it... or it could be dying hardware... or a bad driver... dunno. you'll have to experiment06:39
EvilPhoenixriya:  or that at some point a dependency of the operating system's kernel failed to work, and segfaulted or something06:39
Dulakhe's talking about the first boot after install06:39
nhorning1icarus-c: I'm using a usb live cd06:39
icarus-cnhorning1, so when you boot with a livecd, it complains something wrong with sda ?06:39
nhorning1icarus-c: correct06:39
nhorning1icarus-c: keep in mind it's a usb stick06:39
Steristriya use the software center to install an old kernel, then reboot using the old kernel, uninstall the latest, and reinstall the latest, then uninstall the old. problem solved.06:39
icarus-cnhorning1, um... but when it says sda with a live usb, i'm not sure "sda" is refering to the usb or the disk..06:39
nhorning1icarus-c: want me to try again so I can tell you the exact error06:40
techbreakSterist, in administratie tool i dont find disk management tool06:40
icarus-cnhorning1, good idea06:40
Steristtechbreak Computer Management?06:40
riyaSterist software center??06:40
riyawhats this06:40
icarus-cnhorning1, you sure the live usb is in good status?06:40
Steristriya lol ask someone else for now please06:40
techbreakSterist, yeah06:40
icarus-cnhorning1, maybe try to unplug your hard disk and try to boot the liveusb first06:40
Steristtechbreak does Computer Management show you a list of things on your hard drive or a list of different applications06:41
nhorning1icarus-c: yeah, I just tried it on another system and it atleast got to the gui06:41
icarus-cnhorning1, well it is system dependent that whether sda refers to the usb or the disk :)06:41
techbreakSterist, i have three options.. system tools, storage and serveices and applications06:41
Steristtechbreak Storage06:41
coolsanhi all06:42
nhorning1icarus-c: I checked forums before this, and it seems everyone solved their problem by checking the disk06:42
Steristtechbreak do you see your 287gb partition on the list in there?06:42
nhorning1icarus-c: my problem is I can't seem to get to the point where I can run that06:42
opakavic!single06:42
techbreakSterist, yeah06:43
opakavicis there a way to boot jaunty in single mode06:43
marcusgood morning06:43
techbreaki got two things.. c: ntfs and d: ntfs06:43
nhorning1icarus-c: so I'm booting off the usb stick, it's got the splash screen up, it seems to take forever, so I hit esc and I get the following:06:43
techbreakSterist, i got c: ntfs and D: ntfs06:43
Steristtechbreak okay right-click it and click Shrink (dont worry, this will bring up a menu and wont take any action)06:43
techbreakSterist, d is recovery stuff06:43
Subdolusstill cant find anything on starting a program on an ssh session, then sending it to my physical console monitor :(06:43
techbreakSterist, ok06:43
Steristtechbreak NOT the recovery one, though the menu wouldn't harm it06:43
icarus-ctechbreak, on vista disk management right?06:44
nhorning1icarus-c: <bunch of junk>  Killed ubable to open '/dev/sda'  stdin:error 006:44
techbreakSterist, ya i m shrinking c06:44
techbreakicarus-c, yeah06:44
icarus-ctechbreak, so you could right click on C drive and select Shrink06:44
Steristtechbreak it's not actually shrinking right now, it should say "querying available space" or something like that, right?06:44
icarus-cnhorning1, right.... and you have used this usb drive on this machine with the same configuration before?06:45
techbreakSterist, yeah after that it shows how much it ll be shrinked.. then i clicked "shrink"06:45
nhorning1icarus-c: I used it to install ubuntu06:45
techbreakSterist, is that okay what i did?06:45
icarus-cnhorning1, oh, and the ubuntu system worked fine before right?06:45
nhorning1icarus-c: right06:45
icarus-cnhorning1, and suddenly it complains init thing06:45
opakavic!single mode06:45
renatosrabelo1! dance06:45
nhorning1icarus-c: I had a team take it into the field06:46
nhorning1icarus-c: they said it ran out of batteries06:46
Steristtechbreak wait... so you right clicked the C drive, clicked Shrink, the menu popped up... and have you done anything more beyond that?06:46
opakavici lost my password, even the root password, i'm looking for single mode boot in jaunty06:46
ethereticI have an extremely unreliable wifi connection. Signal quality/strength is good, but resolving dns seems to be a problem. When the Link Monitor applet is running, one or both of the pinged sites "fall out" irregularly.06:46
renatosrabelo1!dance06:46
ethereticImage of link monitor history at http://imgur.com/o2N0u06:46
nhorning1icarus-c: they brought it back, and when they turned it on there was a kernel panic06:46
techbreakSterist, yeah i clicked "shrink"06:46
icarus-cnhorning1, oh... yea system shutdown before  file systems are unmounted :P06:46
nhorning1icarus-c: When I reset it I get this issue06:46
icarus-cnhorning1, that is bad to the file system06:47
icarus-cnhorning1, could you boot the liveusb with the hard disk unplugged ?06:47
nhorning1icarus-c: difficult, this is a netbook06:47
Steristtechbreak how many mb's did you tell it to shrink by?06:47
icarus-cnhorning1, ahh right..06:47
icarus-cnhorning1, do you have any other live cd/usb to try ?06:48
nhorning1icarus-c: I tried disabling the main drive in the bios already. no dice06:48
techbreakSterist, it was showing some data by default. the recent size and size after shrinking.. i didnt choose just clicked shrink06:48
xbonesxanyone know how i could mimic windows 7's feature where when a windows is dragged to the edge that it halves on that side of the screen?06:48
icarus-cnhorning1, i somehow suspect usb problem for liveusb fail to boot06:48
techbreakSterist, my system is hanged in between.. i am waiting it to respond06:48
nhorning1icarus-c: there is a copy of lucid puppy downstairs but it's not on usb06:48
icarus-cnhorning1, that's fine.  you just need whatever live system to boot and then do fsck06:49
Steristtechbreak are you using something else to talk on the IRC right now? lol06:49
techbreakSterist, if you dont mind to wait little i will restart my system06:49
nhorning1icarus-c: I can boot up the windows partition, is there any way I could do it through that?06:49
techbreakSterist, yeah I am in another laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 :) :)06:49
Steristtechbreak i would not recommend a manual power-off while using storage tools06:49
icarus-cnhorning1, no.. windows can't do anything with Linux file system except formating them..06:50

icarus-cnhorning1, can you boot to grub and verify the boot options for ubuntu are alright?06:50
coolsanicarus-c: you have .iso image of ubuntu06:50

aromanhey, does anyone know where cakephp gets installed when installed from the repos?06:51
techbreakSterist, I got back into same place.. quering volume for available disk spcae06:51

techbreakSterist, i got the pop up :)06:51

techbreakSterist, total size before shrink: 294521 size of available 8411 enter the amount of space to shringk in mb:06:52
rwwnikolam: Nothing's marking you as a bot. Unidentified users are redirected to #ubuntu-unregged when they try to join here if +r is set (which it is). Your client apparently doesn't leave enough time after attempting to identify before /joining channels. You end up there.06:52
aromanprince_jammys, Ah okay, cheers.06:52
Niglopcan somebody help me mount my flash stick06:52
prince_jammysaroman: welcome.06:52
Steristtechbreak okay so what number does it show under "available to shrink"?06:52
techbreakSterist, and the last option is total size after shringk in mb:06:52

nikolamrww, wl how a heck somebodz think I am unidentified, when I AM06:53
nhorning1icarus-c: you mean the version?06:53
nikolamAnd Client first identifies , then joins06:53
nikolamI see rww06:53
=== shookees is now known as ZNC_shookees
icarus-cStrongOrder, well the blur plugin ?06:54
icarus-cnhorning1, no. there should be  a line for kernel parameter06:54
Steristtechbreak okay due to the NTFS bullshxt fragmentation, you only have 8.21 gb to shrink (maximum size you can dedicate to a new partition with the current state of your hard drive)06:54
rwwnikolam: Presumably, it's not leaving enough time after identifying. I have mine wait five seconds.06:54
rwwSterist: Watch your language, please.06:54
nhorning1icarus-c: initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-24-generic06:54

StrongOrdericarus-c, enabling it only blurs the title bars. I want to blur the whole window bg06:54
Steristrww fine lol06:54
nikolamrww, I understand.. mazbe BOT should take some time before isentifying something Badly?06:54
rwwnikolam: It's not the bot's fault that freenode detects you as unidentified and forwards you.06:55
Steristtechbreak "checkdisk utility" are you familiar with it?06:55

nhorning1icarus-c: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-24-generic root=UUID=30f2dbala blahg blah blah06:55
techbreakSterist, in command line its something like chkdsk right?06:55
Steristtechbreak okay, let that to a full check of your hard drive, then defragment it06:55
xbonesxanyone know how i could mimic windows 7's feature where when a windows is dragged to the edge that it halves on that side of the screen?06:56
nikolamso its freenodes fault. But other channels do not. Oh well, I am not complaining. Maybe I just go away and not connect at all.06:56
Steristtechbreak idk, i think vista requires you to reboot for it to run06:56
nikolamthanks rww for explanation06:56
nhorning1icarus-c: insmod ext2....  is that right?06:56
techbreakSterist, so shall i reboot it? what should i do next? shrink is not done06:56
Steristtechbreak i think it prompts you to reboot after clicking / commanding chkdsk06:56
Blue1techbreak: if you are shrinking a paritition, tht can take several hours.06:56
icarus-cnhorning1, yea give the whole output of that /boot/vmlinuz........line if you could06:57
icarus-cnhorning1, you could skip the UUID06:57

coolsanBlue1: HowDoI can i plz  give me a quick over view07:09
macoHowDoI: because all its doing is copying the file from ~/.ssh or ~/.gnupg07:09
NiglopBlue1»  no it was working before but our house had a power shortage and now its not mounted on my comp so im trying to fix it07:09
Blue1coolsan: boot off of live cd, run gparted, and when it comes up, there should be an option to resize, or change the size --07:09
macoHowDoI: it still cant be USED without a password07:09
Blue1Niglop: it would help us a lot, if you could tell us how you formatted it.  Windows?  Linux?07:10
coolsanBlue1: thanx07:10
NiglopBlue1»  linux07:10
HowDoImaco, but the password is the weakest part.  Anyone who uses my computer could export both private and public keys and then just guess the password, defeating the whole purpose of the encryption07:10
LinXzHowDol: Then you password is too weak07:11
icarus-cglebihan, you need to remove panel from required_component07:11
macoHowDoI: if they're logged in as you they can copy ~/.ssh and ~/.gnupg with or without seahorse07:11
icarus-cglebihan, and start gnome-panel as  startup application instead07:11
macoHowDoI: the solution is to not let them login as you07:11
cuddlefish_XOHowDoI: And strong password07:11
NiglopBlue1»  ext3 or ext4 i think07:11
Blue1Niglop: usually sudo e2fsck /dev/<DeviceNameGoesHere>07:11
HowDoImaco, I was under the impression that all private keys were stored on my machine in encrypted form07:11
rwwIf the password is the weakest part, you're doing passwords wrong.07:11
glebihanicarus-c: where can I find this required_component parameter ?07:11
icarus-cglebihan, gconf-editor07:12
coolsanBlue1: can i do it by 'disk utility' (system->administration->diskutility)07:12
glebihanicarus-c: ok thanks07:12
rwwthere's a reason GNUPG says "passphrase".07:12
cuddlefish_XOrww: No, ssh just does encryption right07:12
icarus-cglebihan, somewhere in /desktop/gnome/session  i suppose07:12
macoHowDoI: encrypted with what key?07:12
Blue1coolsan: no, the drive MUST be unmounted, which is why I said:  livecd07:12
glebihanicarus-c: yes, /desktop/gnome/session/required_components07:12
icarus-ccuddlefish_XO, uhh  ssh is for secured shell.07:13
icarus-cand a little more than that07:13
macoHowDoI: gpg --export-secret-keys doesnt ask for a password either07:13
HowDoImaco, I don't know what key.  I thought that the private key was semi-safe because it was inaccessible without a password.  After giving the password, the private key would be decrypted so it could be used in conjunction with the public key to decrypt whatever it was07:13
cuddlefish_XOicarus-c: ssh does encryption verry, verry well07:13
Blue1cuddlefish_XO: and "X" can ride for free07:14
cuddlefish_XOBlue1: yep07:14
icarus-ccuddlefish_XO, and it is not just about encryption though07:14
Xaseholy crap in a pita07:14
NiglopBlue1»  but its not showing up on the pc so i dont know what /dev/ it is07:14
HowDoImaco, are you saying that encryption is totally useless if someone has access to my hard disk?07:14
cuddlefish_XOXase: That's just horrible07:14
Xase... arm-eabi-gcc not found.07:14
XaseWell i can't compile07:14
icarus-ccuddlefish_XO, and as far as i know, it is openssl doing the encryption, not ssh itself07:14
macoHowDoI: the fact that ~/.gnupg is chmod 700 is what protects it. other users on the system cant see it, but you can07:14
XaseHow do I get arm-eabi-gcc for Ubuntu?07:14
Guest72544/q07:14
macoHowDoI: but yes, if they have access to the hard disk as root.... they can get your key07:15
cuddlefish_XOicarus-c: It's quite late here07:15
macoHowDoI: well as root or as you07:15
Blue1niglop: what version of ubuntu are you using?07:15

NiglopBlue1»  how do i check what /dev/ it is07:15
Xasearm-eabi-gcc ?07:15
HowDoImaco, then what do you recommend I do with the files I don't want people to see, even if they have access to my logged-in desktop?07:15
macoHowDoI: you may want to consider encrypting your home directory and not allowing people to use your user account (ubuntu has guest sessions)07:15
Blue1Niglop: don't use a question mark after my name, hit tab for completions --07:15
XaseHowDoI, you can prefix them with a . to make  them hidden07:16
macoHowDoI: get a new workflow. dont give them access to your logged-in desktop07:16
ElCerebr0Smitsch your web cam should work out of the box, what program are you trying to use it with?07:16
cuddlefish_XONiglop: try "ls /dev/sd*"07:16
Niglopok Blue1, how can i fix it?07:16
macoXase: which isnt going to stop anyone who knows how to use the system well enough to even know about seahorse or the gpg command07:16
icarus-cglebihan, yea remove  panel from /desktop/gnome/session/required_components_list07:16
XaseNo it isn't.07:16

icarus-cst__, gvfs07:18
XaseI need arm-eabi-gcc or an arm crosscompiling toolchain...07:18
XaseWhich is oddly alien to me.07:18
timh____can one localize specific desktop icons to specific workspaces, so they appear there and nowhere else?07:18
st__gvfs what?07:19
XaseYeah timh____07:19
SmitschElCerebr0, I'm using Ubuntu 10.03.1 installed within Windows Vista Home Premium 64.  I was given a website where I downloaded and installed drivers for the DVD drive.  The only software I installed related to a Web Cam is VLC which plays my DVD's just fine.  There is no software that I can see that uses the Web Cam.07:19
HowDoImaco, so the private key is only as safe as the machine you are using to decrypt things on?07:19
macoHowDoI: yes07:19
XaseStore the Desktop shortcut in your home folder rather than in the filesystem root.07:19
st__timh____, there are no separate desktops, so cannot be different icons07:19
macoHowDoI: really, make use of guest sessions and screenlocking and encrypted filesystems07:19
Xaseor do you mean the virtual desktops?07:20
HowDoImaco, can I instruct seahorse/gnupgp or whatever to prompt me for a private key any time I want to decrypt something?07:20
icarus-cst__, gnome virtual file system07:20
macoHowDoI: to turn off caching? im sure that's possible... if there's no seahorse-agent or gnupg-agent, there'll be no caching07:20

st__how to open gvfs url in application which doesn't support it?07:20
macoHowDoI: er oh wait thats for the password07:20
icarus-cst__, iirc it mounts stuff to  ~/.gvfs07:20
coolsanSmitsch: you should install 'CHEESE'07:21
st__icarus-c, it's empty07:21
Evo11can some help me fix a sharing problem on a ubuntu server?07:21
Xase...07:21
macoHowDoI: you could get an Iron Key and store your ~/.gnupg on there then mount it at ~/.gnupg when you want to use the key. Iron Keys are encrypted thumbdrives that destroy the data if you fail the password 3x in a row07:21
icarus-cst__, have you mounted something (like a network share) with nautilus yet?07:21
SmitschOK,  I think I found it on the Internet.07:21
XaseCan someone direct me somewhere that can help me set up a arm toolchain?07:21
st__icarus-c, yes, it's open07:22
macoXase: #ubuntu-arm is probably where the arm devs live07:22
Smitschcoolsan, I think I found CHEESE07:22
XaseYeah but I am developing Android on 'Ubuntu' x86 =(07:22
coolsanok07:22
HowDoImaco, thanks, but I don't know my passwords07:22
timh____st__:thx.  It'd be a nice feature.  I wonder if there is a notification when one changes workspaces so I could copy in a Desktop through some script or something.07:22
ElCerebr0Smitsch Cheese should turn on your webcam and allow you to take pictures07:22
macoHowDoI: er... how do you use encryption without knowing your password?07:23
xbonesxanyone know how i could mimic windows 7's feature where when a windows is dragged to the edge that it halves on that side of the screen?07:23
rwwinstall KDE07:23
macoxbonesx: use kwin?07:23
st__timh____, you need >1 monitor to really have several desktops07:23
ElCerebr0I've never tried skype so i don't know how it works07:23
xbonesxmaco: whats that, where can i get it?07:23
bluegoontest07:23
macoxbonesx: kwin is kde's window manager. sudo apt-get install kwin07:23
icarus-cxbonesx, use compiz07:23
SmitschElCerebr0 I found Cheese 2.31.1  I'll give it a try.07:23
icarus-cxbonesx, compiz 's grid plugin07:23
HowDoImaco, my passwords are geometric.  I memorize the pattern of keypresses, not the actual characters.  It is very difficult for me to write them down without looking at a keyboard.07:24
macoxbonesx: then you can set "kwin --replace" in your system -> preferences -> session -> autostart07:24
xbonesxicarus-c: im aware of that, what do i need to change in it07:24
glebihanicarus-c: the panel still respawns after removing it from required components07:24
st__how to open gvfs url in application which doesn't support it?07:24
icarus-cxbonesx, but it uses keyboard shortcut by default07:24
macoHowDoI: ah ok. muscle memory. do you frequently mis-type them repeatedly?07:24
icarus-cglebihan, have you log out/in yet?07:24
glebihanicarus-c: yep07:24
st__also, is there a command to open file?07:25
icarus-cglebihan, well i haven't tested it so.. :P07:25
icarus-cxbonesx, are you using compiz ?07:25
macost__: gnome-open filename07:25
HowDoImaco, I frequently mistype them on a different keyboard, yes07:25
timh____st__: I suppose that's it.  I'm not to keen on dragging an extra monitor into this restaurant with wifi07:25
timh____;-)07:25
ElCerebr0Does anyone know how to add Internet Radio stations to Banshee?07:25
glebihanicarus-c: thanks for the suggestion, think I'm going to get rid of gnome-session anyway07:25
coolsani didn't use banshee07:26
Name141are there any sega gen emulators in the repos than dgen ?07:26
timh____xbonesx: fvwm2 has that capability.07:26
icarus-cxbonesx, using mouse and drag window to edge to snap isn't a good idea for multiple workspace desktop,  since typically you drag a window to the edge to move to another workspace07:26
xbonesxicarus-c: yes sir and im aware of that part (grid)07:26
Name141or, how do I even run dgen ?07:27
icarus-cxbonesx, but yes, you could set to do it with mouse too07:27
icarus-cbut i found keyboard is more convenient07:27
xbonesxicarus-c: mine isnt set to switch workplaces when dragged to the edge07:27
xbonesxicarus-c: so i could set it up to snap like windows 7 in a single workspace07:28
st__why cannot I drag files to terminal?07:28
ActionParsnipst__: is it a feature normally?07:28
st__ActionParsnip, it should07:28
icarus-cxbonesx, yes. but i lost the howto to set that and i can't remember how07:28
ElCerebr0st what kind of files are you trying to drag to the terminal and why?07:29
icarus-cst__, when you drag a file from nautilus to gnome-terminal, it should give you the path07:29
HowDoImaco, another question:  When seahorse exports the private key, for instance, is this key encrypted using the passphrase or not?07:29
ActionParsnipst__: that's a different matter. If its not a normal feature I suggest you post it on http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com07:29
st__also it doesn't paste it to terminal :sad:07:29
xbonesxicarus-c: ill mess around with it, thanks for the info07:29
willvarfarok, why is software update suggesting I install the latest linux kernel, and then listing it as UNAUTHENTICATED ?07:29
macoHowDoI: the passphrase will still be necessary in order to use it, yeah07:29
st__i;m using uxterm, it doesn;t support this?07:30
ActionParsnipwillvarfar: sounds like you added a ppa but not the key07:30
macoHowDoI: export is just so you can have the same private key on more than one computer07:30
ActionParsnipst__: not sure07:30
ElCerebr0st i just tried it and it works, never new about that07:30
nhorning1ok, I'm back07:30
icarus-cxbonesx, i got this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvlTlyEasD807:30
icarus-cxbonesx, it is not the howto i read before but.07:30
xbonesxicarus-c: ill check it ou07:31
xbonesxout*07:31
ActionParsnipwillvarfar: if you run: sudo apt-get update ,do you get errors about pubkeys?07:31
macoElCerebr0: using uxterm or the default gnome-terminal?07:31
nhorning1icarus-c: I'm back and have puppy linux up and running07:31
ActionParsnipnhorning1: puppy is awesome07:31
icarus-cnhorning1, good.    locate your partitions with  fdisk -l  (or  blkid)  then fsck -f  them07:31
HowDoImaco, so let's see if I have this straight.  The public key is just a key that everybody has.  The private key itself is encrypted with the passphrase.  To decrypt things that were encrypted with the public key, an attacker would have to first get my encrypted private key basically by physically accessing my computer, and ALSO get my passphrase to decrypt the private key?07:31
willvarfarActionParsnip, no; I haven't changed sources or anything; I'm more here because I'm worried07:31
nhorning1icarus-c: I've tried fsck sda6 -f and it says the supperblock is corrupt07:31
macoHowDoI: yup07:32
HowDoImaco, so the whole security is the passphrase basically.  Hiding my private key just makes it a little tougher07:32
st__also I cannot drag file into execute box ((07:32
ActionParsnipwillvarfar: then i'd check software sources and /etc/apt/sources.list to see what's going on. I don't advise you upgrade just yet07:32
willvarfarI am also irritated that the update wizard first warns me things are NOT AUTHENTICATED in capitals when I got to install, but if I click a second time, it doesn't list whats to be installed or anything, it just goes ahead; so if you've tried to uncheck the unauthenticated things, you don't know if you managed to remember them all07:32
ActionParsnipst__: what's an execute box?07:33
willvarfarhow can unauthenticated things slip into the update stream07:33
icarus-cnhorning1, "dumpe2fs   /dev/sda6 |grep superblock"07:33
nhorning1icarus-c: but it's talking about an ext2 file system. I'm pretty sure its an ext4 file system07:33
icarus-cnhorning1, oh wait07:33
willvarfarbut, importantly, nobody else is being told that the latest kernel pushed out is not authenticated?07:33
icarus-cnhorning1, what kernel does puppy run07:33
st__box for alt+f207:33
macoHowDoI: yes, passphrases are very very important07:34
nhorning1icarus-c: I don't know, but I think it's a current one07:34
ActionParsnipwillvarfar: if you run stuff unecessarily as root or worse, log in as root it can happen more easily07:34
icarus-cnhorning1, uname -a07:34
ActionParsnipst__: why would you dragstuff there if you have the item already?07:34
icarus-cnhorning1, um  or just "lsmod|grep ext4"07:34
st__ActionParsnip, I need it's full name07:34
nhorning12.6.33.207:34
ActionParsnipst__: all good suggestions for brainstorm though :)07:35
willvarfarActionParsnip, what can happen more easily?07:35
rwwActionParsnip: That's not what it means by "not authenticated"07:35
HowDoIThanks maco07:35
rwwwillvarfar: Did you interrupt a check for updates? That sometimes causes it to say that.07:35
willvarfarah07:36
rwwwillvarfar: assuming that you haven't been adding new software sources, I'd guess that's the issue.07:36
st__willvarfar, update manager is not supposed to handle such situations. it's expected that you open package manager instead07:36
nhorning1icarus-c: lsmod|grep ext4 resulted in nothing I could see07:36
rww(and the solution is to tell it to check again)07:36
willvarfarnot knowingly, but I do download in background so..07:36
ActionParsniprww: sounds like a key thing to me, that's the noise apt-get makes when you don't add keys etc07:36
icarus-cnhorning1, ok now try "modprobe  ext4"07:36
rwwActionParsnip: which has nothing to do with root07:36
willvarfardoing reload in package manager and the warning goes away07:36
willvarfarbut it leaves a very unpleasant taste in the mouth07:36
rwwwillvarfar: there you go, then. It is a rather unintuitive message :\07:37
nhorning1icarus-c: FATAL: Moduel ext4 not found07:37
ActionParsniprww: if you run the OS as root and some malicious code gets ran then it can modify the sources files quite easily07:37
willvarfarupdate manager *should* mange this; the user should never be told things are NOT AUTHENTICATED07:37

takyi am trying to format my current macbook pro with ubuntu, since i cannot stand osx's half-assed imitation of linux, anyone else done this recently to success?07:49
ActionParsnipEvo11: why did you install the server OS to then put a gui on it like a desktop OS?07:49
st__taky, excuse me?07:49
xbonesxanyone know of a program that would let you use the joystick on a wired xbox 360 controller to control the cursor and the buttons on a mouse???07:49
ActionParsnipEvo11: if you wanted a desktop system then you should install a desktop system07:50
Pramodi installed ubuntu sucessfully. and it worked fine. But when i inserted the firewire PCI card raw1394, my ubuntu fails to start in graphics mode.. What could be done ?07:50
st__ActionParsnip, it doesn't matter07:50
navetzneed to restart :)07:50
greppyPramod: is your firewire pci card supported by linux?07:50
Kartagisst__ http://people.sabanciuniv.edu/mtozses/synaptic.png07:51
navetzthe only time i think i've ever had to restart is for a kernel upgrade07:51
ActionParsnipst__: just curious of the mindset, its completely baffling07:51
Pramodgreppy yes07:51
st__Kartagis, thanks!07:51
izardstreethey guys - i changed my computer and host name on my ubuntu 10.04 but my old hostname jeffrey is still being displayed as my username here07:51
takyst__, you heard me, osx is horrible07:52
Kartagisst__ np. now in return, answer this. do you know what codec mencoder requires for libmp3lame?07:52
Kartagistaky send your macbook pro to me then07:52
greppytaky: I have ubuntu running on my 4gen white macbook.07:52
ActionParsnipxbonesx: seems the xpad module drives it07:52
takygreppy, bah, this is a new macbook pro, like the one without buttons07:52
xbonesxHow can i completely wipe a usb drive of all partitions (including hidden ones)07:52
greppytaky: ah07:53
xbonesxActionParsnip: huh?07:53
takyKartagis, no, because i like the device itself, just needs adequate softwware07:53
Pramodgreppy is there any way to check it ?07:53
ActionParsnipxbonesx: if you modprobe xpad it will work07:53
Evo11cos lm still very new to ubuntu server and am getting use to in the gui way then wanna go to terminal only07:53
dastanhow to install BT aplication on my lucid ?07:54
Evo11brb07:54
ActionParsnipxbonesx: you'll need an xbox to usb adapter07:54
st__taky, you're sounding like an inept troll actually07:54
ActionParsnipEvo11: then installing the desktop OS would have been smarter07:54
greppyPramod: I'd have to hit google with the model info and see what I could find.07:54
xbonesxActionParsnip: i have a wired controller, will that do?07:54
takyst__, i am stating truth, osx is a very sad os07:54
Pramodgreppy then i move to low graphic mode after which it works fine..07:54
ActionParsniptaky: not only is the OS lame but the hardware is twice the price07:55
takyActionParsnip, agreeee07:55
greppytaky: have you taken a look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro07:55
* xbonesx agrees too07:55
ActionParsnipxbonesx: sure, grab an xbox to usb converter if it already isn't usb and you should be ok07:56

eliminyrono, i am seriuos. ) there's a lot of units that can be useful )07:57
ActionParsnipxbonesx: yeah should do it. You can add it in /etc/modules if it flys07:57
greppytaky: OS choice, like most things in life, is a matter of opinion.  Some people like apple, some like microsoft, some like openbsd, freebsd, linux, solaris, etc etc.  to each, their choice is the better and others are poor :)07:57
Nigloprww»  not showing07:57
takygreppy, i don't understand why anyone (a poweruser anyway) would use anything but linux07:58
ActionParsnipxbonesx: you may need jscalibrator to make it nice07:58
deSzadouHey07:58
MatejHey07:58
st__taky, because people needs their machines to work, not to tinker or browsing07:58
ActionParsniptaky: depends on requirement. Linux isn't always the answer07:58
greppytaky: I know many "powerusers" who swear by freebsd over linux, others that swear by osx over all others, it depends on your goals and expectations.07:58

xbonesxActionParsnip: is there a config file for xpad?07:59
greppyPramod: ok, you may need to configure it in your xorg.conf07:59
Blue1ActionParsnip: was trying to help niglop recover a flash drive.  It shows up on lsusb, but nothing on blkid, can you help him?  couldn't run e2fsck since it got no further.  thanks.07:59
ActionParsnipxbonesx: it should obey whatever config there is for jscalibrator08:00
ActionParsnipBlue1: anything in sudo fdisk -l ?08:00
Pramodgreppy you mean "dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg" ?08:00
Blue1ActionParsnip: no didn't try that.08:01

ActionParsnipst__: what command generates that?08:03
xbonesxcouldnt find it in synaptic, means it wont show if i run "sudo apt-get install" either right?08:03
xbonesxActionParsnip: couldnt find it in synaptic, means it wont show if i run "sudo apt-get install" either right?08:03
st__ActionParsnip, gfvs-open <url as hown in file manager>08:03
ActionParsnipst__: if you mount the share you can access the data like a local resource and have no issues08:03
st__ActionParsnip, how do I?08:04
greppyPramod: hrm, well, what kind of firewire card is it?  make and model?08:04
Loshkist__: well, no registered applications at all, really. Just recommendations for apps that are particularly useful for text files...08:04
st__but when I click local text files they do open...08:04
ActionParsnipst__: look into smbmount or you can add an entry in /etc/fstab to mount at boot08:04
st__ActionParsnip, I cannot, cifs doen't work for me08:04
Blue1ActionParsnip: nope sudo fdisk -l didn't work either.  :-( -- time for me to wind down that day, but if you could help niglop much appreciated.  thanks.08:05

LoshkiKartagis: you have to supply an input file (and probably an output file too). mencoder takes *lots* of options. What exactly are you trying to do. Maybe there's an easier way?08:09
st__ActionParsnip, it's same damned thing, try mount -v -t smbfs and it will call mount.cifs08:09

smalltown_boy345 would it be possible to format a flash drive through a Live CD?08:14
LoshkiKartagis: oh. the codecs are optional due to licensing issues, sounds like you don't have them installed on the home version. When you get home, you can install them. What release are you running at home?08:14
ActionParsnipsmalltown_boy345: sure. The livecd has gparted as well as usb-creator which will allow you to install to the usb08:14

ActionParsnipsmalltown_boy345: you could try as the VERY last resort (like just before you bin it) to put a strong magnet on it to perhaps reset it08:17
jinxzsis it easy? where i can read about that. im not been a week since i try this08:17

navetzhow can I get these catalyst ati drivers again?08:20
navetzi don't have the link you sent me before because I had to reboot08:20
ActionParsnipst__: linux has had iso mounting in the kernel for ages yet windows still needs 3rd party apps to do it08:20

Inferusi have ubuntu server installed, want to put xubuntu on it, and have it boot to the gui automatically on start up09:28
Inferusis there a howto?09:28
Inferus:)09:28
subcoolHey, UFW has programs auto associated with it, so that when you say allow ssh - it knows the port. where can i find the list of programs associated with UFW already, and for starters .. whats the one for azureus09:29
InferusIs it just, sudo apt-get install xubuntu09:29
InferusIs it just, sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop09:29

darkdelusionsInferus: which is pretty much apt-get install xubuntu-desktop :)09:30
morsingI've just run an update on Ubuntu 10.04 and can no longer sftp to my Debian system. SSH is fine09:31
Inferuserm, i want to have a xubuntu desktop as my linux-fu is weak at the moment, so whilst i learn more about it, it's easier for me to do some tasks in gui09:31
Inferus:)09:31
st__why ubuntu maintainers are so f..ing lazy? I reported a bug 2 days ago but noone even looked at it...09:31

st__Inferus, I wouldn't advice Xubuntu, as it misses several important desktop functions09:32

jhattaraicarus-c, it didn't upgrade linux-generic, linux-headers-generic nor linux-image-generic09:32
Inferusok09:32
st__Inferus, Gnome or KDE is bare minimum for newer users09:32
Inferusis kubuntu better then?09:32
icarus-cjhattara, because there is no update yet from your mirror i believe09:32

icarus-cst__, some people need certain advanced features, some doesn't.  GNOME, KDE wants features,  Xfce  wants to be lightweight.  does that explain something?09:33

st__no it's normal bug, but it's not the reason not to look at it for months09:42

rwwst__: Ubuntu doesn't have individual maintainers for packages. They're managed collectively by MOTU, Core devs, etc., depending on section.09:43

icarus-cxbonesx, if you want to wipe everything  "dd if=/dev/urandom  of=/dev/<the_usb_drive"09:47
icarus-cxbonesx, probably no. why would you want one09:47
icarus-cdd is too powerful,  if there is a GUI tool for it, that tool may be harder to use than dd command itself09:47
xbonesxok so do i need to unmount the drive to use "dd"09:48
icarus-cxbonesx, you should.09:48
icarus-cxbonesx, identify your usb drive with  "fdisk -l"  # that's a small L09:49
xbonesx/dev/sdb/ <--- thats it09:49
icarus-cxbonesx,  dd if=/dev/urandom /dev/sdb of=/dev/sdb   # be VERY sure /dev/sdb it your usb drive.  the command will delete EVERYTHING  on /dev/sdb09:50

xbonesxicarus-c: ya thats not the one09:53
xbonesxicarus-c: when eject the disk it no longer see the device09:54
icarus-cxbonesx, between, you may want to repeat the process a few times, and do some  "mkfs" operations  to make it close to impossible to recover09:54
xbonesxisnt that how you would unmount it?09:54
st__mkfs do not affect data actually09:54
icarus-cxbonesx, um... what?  you couldn't mount/umount again for /dev/sdb* because it got no partition after  that dd thing09:54
icarus-cst__, that's why we have used dd :)09:55

DanielHi! I got the following in the kdm.log: error setting MTRR (base = 0xd0000000, size = 0x10000000, type = 1) Inappropriate ioctl for device (25).  Visually this error is seen as infinite login screen on startup (how much ever I enter correct credentials). Is there any chance to fix it without re-installing KDE or the whole OS?09:55
icarus-cxbonesx, lol  then you should have used fdisk instead09:55
xbonesxicarus-c: havent ran the dd yet09:55

AdvoWorkicarus-c, any suggestions then?10:02
icarus-cxbonesx, just a bit of explanation,  that dd command will get input from /dev/zero  (which is 00000000) and write to /dev/sdb10:02
icarus-cAdvoWork, then it should have mounted to /media/  or  ~/.gvfs  i guess10:03

martez89alt-f2?10:48
glebihanmartez89: no, open a terminal10:48
icarus-cglaucous, i have a feeling disabling journal cost more drawback than it helps reduce that slight disk IO10:48
ikoniaxbonesx: second10:48
glebihanmartez89: well you can open the terminal with Alt+F2, then typing "gnome-terminal"10:49

Sprockets2000Hello, how can you tell which device is the one to write the MBR to when trying to fix your windows bootloader10:50
icarus-cglaucous, it helps better do stuff like  mount file system with "noatime",   increase "commit" time a bit,  increase vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs,  lower vm.swappiness ...etc10:50
greppyctrl-alt t will also open a terminal in gnome.10:50
Sprockets2000I was trying to do some things and screwed up grub10:50
Sprockets2000Or can I easily rebuild grub?10:50
xbonesxikonia: when running this for 2gb, should it take very long?10:51
martez89glebihan, i don't think internal speaker is muted10:51
ikoniaxbonesx: yes10:51
icarus-cglaucous, well, if you use data=writeback  option even with journal, it should get similar performance from benchmark10:51
dwarderi've removed login name from top pannel by eccident10:51
dwarderhow can i restore it10:51
sddfdgsdsnanuu10:51
icarus-cglaucous, after all, benchmark is way beyond general usage10:51
glaucousicarus-c, read about it yesterday, although I don't remember exactly all of it. What does noatime and data=writeback do?10:52
icarus-cglaucous, you may also put  web browser cache to  /dev/shm  (ram disk)  to reduce disk IO10:52
glaucousicarus-c, yup, did that already10:52
BitTormentI'm getting the exact same problem as described here: http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=157305410:52
BitTormentcan someone suggest how I recover from a failed kernel update10:52
icarus-cglaucous, without noatime,  ubuntu default to  relatime (if i remember correctly).  atime is access time, which by default get updated (hence a write operation) when you read a file10:53
BitTormentthat is causing ubuntu to freeze at the login screen10:53
ikoniaBitTorment: on the grub menu select the older kernel10:53
icarus-cglaucous, noatime disable writing atime info when you read10:53
Legend_XeonMy ip is listed on www.spamhaus.org. Wat can be the reasons ?10:53
glaucousicarus-c, great, makes sense to turn it off10:53
BitTormentikonia, same thing with the older kernels too10:53
martez89shoulk i use analog stereo duplex?10:53
rww!ot | Legend_Xeon10:53
ubottuLegend_Xeon: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!10:53
ikoniaBitTorment: then you probably have a hardware issue10:54
BitTormentikonia, I've already run a fsck on the drive and fixed any errors there10:54
icarus-cLegend_Xeon,  most often all dynamic ip is on the list. but you could request to remove your IP10:54
glaucousicarus-c, but when do I ever need to know the access time? I might as well turn it off on all drives as far as I see it?10:54
rwwglaucous: some mail clients use it, hence relatime being default instead of noatime.10:54
BitTormentis there any way to rerun the update from a live disc?10:54
rwwthere's not much difference performance-wise between relatime and noatime, so I'd just leave it.10:54
icarus-cglaucous, and read  "man mount" for data={journal|ordered|writeback}10:54
ikoniaBitTorment: if the old kernel is failing to, it's not the update10:55
glaucousrww, okay I see10:55
AdvoWorkicarus-c, you were spot on with the .gvfs.. if i goto that directory i can attach network locations. Any way I can map a drive within there to the desktop?10:55
icarus-cglaucous, well, if you have noatime,  "last access time" information won't be useful anymore :)10:55
icarus-cglaucous, personally i use noatime for / (rootfs) and relatime for /home10:55
BitTormentikonia, it was working 100% before the update though; and the update was interrupted10:55
glaucousicarus-c, sure I understand that, but I don't think I've ever needed that information10:56
icarus-cAdvoWork, simply make a link10:56
glaucousicarus-c, because I'll still have "modified/write time"?10:56
icarus-cglaucous, yes sir :)10:56
xbonesxikonia: http://paste.ubuntu.com/503135/10:56
BitTormentikonia, sorry, got dced10:56
xbonesxikonia: that was the output, all look good?10:57
icarus-cglaucous, but note that a few program that rely on atime doesn't work with noatime . namely  matt email client10:57
ikoniaxbonesx: all done10:57
glaucousicarus-c, alright, I'll keep it only on /10:57
icarus-cglaucous, have you read about data=writeback ?10:57
ikoniaBitTorment: no problem, if the old kernel is not working, it's not the kernel update thats the problem10:57
xbonesxikonia: thanks again, and sorry for the conflict earlier, try to mind my self more next... :)10:57

BitTormentwhat do you make of "info: recovery required on readonly filesystem" in the boot logs10:58
ikoniaBitTorment: it means the file system has an error on it, so it got mounted read only10:58
glaucousicarus-c, yes, I did, doesn't say a lot though.10:59
glaucousicarus-c, data ordering, I guess that's to avoid fragmentation?10:59
glaucousicarus-c, at least that's my first guess10:59
Sprockets2000If you deleted your linux partition how can you fix grub to allow you to boot into windows, or alternativley just reinstall the mbr for windows ive tried using ms-sys doesnt seem to be working10:59
icarus-cglaucous, by default  it uses data=ordered. which update journal & write data to disk  when you write something to disk.   with data=writeback,   it only update journal first when you write something,  the actual data will be written later10:59
Sprockets2000Also would it be a big deal if I write the mBR to a partition that isnt where the MBR goes11:00
icarus-cglaucous, (the actual data will be stored in ram temprorarly)11:00
xbonesxikonia: so now im creating a partition table, default is msdos ( i would like to be able to use the device on windows OS as well) should i leave it too default?11:00
jribSprockets2000: ##windows can help you reinstall the windows mbr11:00
icarus-cSprockets2000, that will make that MBR loses the point of ever existing11:00
=== llutz_ is now known as llutz
ikoniathe partition type "msdos" only means the msdos partition table style, so it's fine for both, the file system determains what OS's can use it11:01
xbonesxikonia: ok TY11:01
erUSULSprockets2000: use a windows instalation disk. boot into windows recovery mode. run « fixmbr »11:02
glaucousicarus-c, when exactly is "be written later"?11:02
icarus-cglaucous, i forgot which option/setting specify that11:03
glaucousicarus-c, okay, no worries11:03
icarus-cglaucous, besides, with a SSD drive, you may want to use  "noop" or "deadline" IO scheduler instead of "cfq"11:03
glaucousicarus-c, oh right, I read about that too. never heard an explanation why though11:04
icarus-cglaucous, you know ncq?11:04
icarus-cglaucous, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NCQ11:04
glaucousicarus-c, yup11:04
icarus-cglaucous, cfq behaves like that, it optimizes IO sequence by its disk location. so to read/write most in a single disk rotation11:05
st__i know in early days you had not to install grub in MBR, can grub 2 be similar?11:05
vasezis there a package that can read .epub a friend emailed me one and said it's like a pdf11:05
glaucousicarus-c, which is pretty much useless on SSD11:05
icarus-cglaucous, but with SSD, that clever hack has no point11:05
pznwhich file can I use to "trigger" an event everytime that wlan0 "goes up"? I need to execute "route add" and "route del" rules based on which access point the card was connected11:05
glaucousicarus-c, so what do you recommend, noop or deadline?11:06
icarus-cglaucous, exactly. it add extra overhead and latency apparently.   so simple scheduler like noop or deadline helps better11:06
st__and is there a way to override files in packed ubuntu image on livecd?11:06
icarus-cglaucous, afaik, noop does no queue merging. while deadline does.11:06
icarus-cglaucous, and i don't know which one is faster for SSD11:06
icarus-cbut they both should be good11:06
erUSULpzn: /etc/network/if-{up,down}.d/  ?11:07
imaginoisvasez type epub in ubuntu software center and the program you need is called e-book reader11:07
icarus-cglaucous, some recommend noop, some say deadline11:07
glaucousicarus-c, okay I see11:07
vasezimaginois: Thank you11:07
icarus-cglaucous, a good article to optimize for SSD   http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSD11:07
glaucousicarus-c, great thansk11:08
glaucousicarus-c, by the way, a somewhat related question. Is it possible to mount drives by ID instead of sda/sdb etc? When changing HDDs that sometimes is annoying11:08
icarus-cglaucous, yes, UUID11:08
glaucousicarus-c, and that's what / is right now I believe11:08
pznerUSUL, where can I find "manpage" about this? I need to know the environment variables that the scripts are called11:08
erUSULglaucous: ubuntu have been using uuid  many years11:08
icarus-cglaucous, use  "UUID=XXXXXXXXXXX"  instead of "/dev/sdXy"  in /etc/fstab and grub11:09
icarus-cglaucous, you could get the UUID of a file system by blkid11:09
glaucousicarus-c, how do I get the UUID of the partition?11:09
glaucousicarus-c, ah okay, looking into it11:09
erUSULpzn: man interfaces11:10
erUSUL!uuid | glaucous11:10
ubottuglaucous: To see a list of your devices/partitions and their corresponding UUID's, run this command in a !shell: « sudo blkid » (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LibAtaForAtaDisks for the rationale behind the transition to UUID)11:10

nogodwarder: ebox = eeepc?11:52
killownc3l man, I am just saying I DON't CARE WITH STABLE OR SECURITY I will not use debian.11:53
icarus-ckillown, i have a feeling that  Debian SID is what suit you11:53
viddyI think what he's trying to say, is that he doesnt care about stability or security.11:53

icarus-ckillown, lol ubuntu is pretty much debian11:54
c3licarus-c: depends on how you see it. theyre quite different too11:54
icarus-cc3l, well yes, in some aspect11:54
nogokillown: both debian and ubuntu's fonts suck. i don't care. i have my own elite fonts11:55
dwarderwhat is the best way to add site to apache in ubuntu? why there are this two dirs sites-available  sites-enabled11:55
dwardersite = virtual host11:55
_ikke_add it to sites-available11:55
killownI am a experienced user,  I am using linux during 12 years11:55
_ikke_and symlink it to sites-enabled11:55
c3licarus-c: ubuntu is probably more user friendly, and the up to date packages, yet security updates is nice11:55
killownI just wanna know about a ppa for gnome 2.3211:55
oCeandwarder: that makes it easy to disable a site/vhosts w/out removing the actual configuration(files)11:56
icarus-cc3l, right11:56
jribdwarder: sites-available are the sites available, and sites-enabled are the sites enabled (you symlink to the sites-available file or just use a2ensite)11:56

I need USB-booted Ubuntu 10.10 to not try to initialize one of the hard disks; it has (probably) unreadable partition table (or worse) and ubuntu keeps failing on some DMA reads and won't even go into X mode, stuck in the error loop. Any way I can prevent any attempts to mount it, so that I can do it manually once everything is up..?12:43

imaginoisUbuntu makes a filesystem check every 30 boots or something. If for any case, you want a filesystem check you can do it by issuing the following command:12:53
imaginoisshutdown -rF now12:54

ThelzNow network support and samba are running again12:55
Thelzso I'm pulling all the files off12:55
