msd18so i can install ubuntu on it00:00
kshawkeye1Is there any way to set up a DNS server that handles something like "kshawkeye.com" or something similar, or would I need to pay something like godaddy because they register it with some sort of list that I cant access? Whats the real use of BIND?00:00
nit-witmsd18, so gparted is not seeing the HD from a live cd?00:00
msd18no it wont but the disk util sees it00:00
msd18but disk util returns an error when i format it00:01
DimitreeHello, which File Systems are supported with Ubuntu? Is there a website where i can read about it?00:02
nit-witmsd18, take a screen shot of gparted and imagebin it and post the link.http://imagebin.org/index.php?page=add00:02
yigalDimitree: what file system do you need supported?00:02
msd18nit-wit when i use the disk util the error i get is Error creating partition table: helper exited with exit code 1: In part_create_partition_table: device_file=/dev/sda, scheme=0 ped_device_get() failed00:03
NixGeekmsd18: probably a bad disk or the connection has probelsm, have you tried a diffrent port on the motherboard, a diffrent cable, or even just making sure the connections are snug?00:03
Dimitreeyigal JFS for example?00:03
nit-witmsd18, okay00:03
yigalDimitree: yes00:03
msd18its a laptop there is no other port00:03
linxehkshawkeye1: you need to get a registrar to add your DNS server IPs to the domain so it shows in whois etc. BIND is used (or a simialr DNS tool) by other DNS servers to resolve dns names in your domain to ips.00:03
kcorcoran__installing/configuring mythbuntu - failing to find channels.  any help appreicated?00:03
yigalDimitree: for instance for Btrfs one has to recompile00:03
yigalDimitree: this is the same system Meego uses00:03
Dimitreeyigal can i install it with the default desktop installer or do i have to manually create ext partitions and so on?00:04
linxehkshawkeye1: essentially, the TLD domain servers delegate to servers defined for each domain, which may in turn delegate to other servers. eventually a server is authoratitive for that domain or subdomain and will return IP addresses for queries on hosts in that domain.00:04
yigallinxeh: I'm very interested in I/OCR so if you have some interesting links for open source I/OCR I think in general I would appreciate them00:05
linxehyigal: well, tesseract is ok, but doesnt perform as well as the cutting edge commercial options. I'm afraid I have no links for you - the stuff I did isnt online00:05

Nanohadoes anybody know if I can run resize2fs without running e2fsck first?00:05
linxehyigal: however, mono images (after processing/ thresholding, depeppering/noise reduction algorithms, deskewing) work best in most engines, and at 200dpi00:06
kshawkeye1linxeh: so how does something like godaddy make the DNS public? Because they have access to the whois list somehow? There is no way I can get a dns server that I want for free other than dyndns or something similar? I can't host it myself?00:06
linxehour belief was that most of the engines threshold incoming images if you give greyscale, so if you can do a better job you might as well00:06
Dimitreeyigal i guess my question is, can i select the FS from the installer, click the "use entire disk" and be done with it?00:06
linxehkshawkeye1: they provide information to NIC or whoever for that domain00:06
msd18nitwit imma imgbucket the ss00:07
JediMaster420is there a better chanel to get support for ubuntu netbook?00:08
linxehkshawkeye1: http://www.crazysquirrel.com/computing/general/how-dns-works.jspx - google has many such links (the wikipedia article is good too http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System)00:08
yigalDimitree: I'm sorry I'm not sure00:08
yigallinxeh: yes exactly00:09
kshawkeye1linxeh: So there is no way to host a domain name for free from home and have it registered with the web? I have a ubuntu server all set up, and I'm using dyndns for my domain name, is that the best I can do for free?00:09
yigallinxeh: that is the problem00:09
linxehkshawkeye1: you have to have the whois for the dns pointing at your home IP address00:09
linxehkshawkeye1: or use dyndns, or setup your own dyndns type system on another internet connected host that defers to your home connection00:10
yigallinxeh: I've built the most recent teseract it's not bad00:10
yigallinxeh: just not great, and getting it where it needs to be, well that would take some time00:10
linxehkshawkeye1: you probably dont want to be hosting things on your home connection though - and with many ISPs you will be in breach of contract if you do00:10

cedric_hello peeps00:11
cedric_i was wondering00:11
BlackDalekyigal, I don't know why this worked, but I opened the case, pulled out the wireless card. Then booted the computer without it, then shut it down. Then I replaced the wireless card and booted up again and it started working again.00:11

cedric_is it possible to kill a process after eg. a minute of execution?00:11
yigalBlackDalek: good to hear00:11

DimitreeHaving a problem with Ubuntu 10.10 live CD.I'm using USB stick and used unetbootin to create it (64bit version of 10.10).When booting it goes to the boot screen with the dots moving, then they stop moving and it freezes there.Any ideas?00:55
ledfeatheryeah. ive set it up to boot from removable media00:55
ledfeatherit just doesnt00:55
NanohaI had that happen00:55
NanohaDimitree:  I had that  happen00:55
sacarlsonducktype: I think it's sudo start apparmor00:56
Kingpokewyt IN other words on your desktop you should see a new hardrive00:56
eternalswdledfeather, you need to make sure it's set to boot first00:56
earwigsDimitree: sounds like corrupted sectors in your USB or ram00:56
Nanohahow big is the USB stick?00:56
=== Darko is now known as Dark0
DimitreeNanoha 1gb00:56
NanohaDimitree: that's TOO small.  Try 4 GB or larger00:56
wytlol sooooooo what does that mean?00:56
ducktypesacarlson:  Unknown job: apparmor!00:56
earwigsDimitree: or you're running out of space on ur USB.00:56
ledfeatherit is set to boot from removble first00:56
DimitreeNanoha but i'm using the LiveCD iso ?!00:56
sacarlsonducktype: ok let me look then00:56
earwigsDimitree: recomended mininum is 4gb, pretty sure it tells you that in the installation process.00:57
ducktypesacarlson: thank you, i'm lost :|00:57
NanohaDimitree: Yup, I had that problem with a 2GB stick.  I tried it on a 8GB, it worked perfect00:57
KingpokeIn there you should see the files from windows wyt... all you have to do is find your home or where you want to go00:57
wytright, i can see some stuff but not everything00:57
DimitreeNanoha is that new to 10.10? I installed older versions with Ubuntu with the same method with no problems?00:57
earwigswyt: purge, purge all them little nasties!00:57
mijkhey, how do I force the live CD to use a certain screen resolution?00:58
NanohaDimitree: I'm not sure if it's new or not, I just know that's my experiance00:58
Kingpokewhat folder are you looking for specifically?00:58
ducktypesacarlson: locate apparmor can't find nothing good to my eyes00:58
Dimitreeearwigs is that new to 10.10?00:59
sacarlsonducktype: I'm running 10.04 and I still see it as sudo  /etc/init.d/apparmor restart00:59
wytmy documents00:59
ledfeatheri got it to install wubi from the usb (inside winblows) and even tried to redownload and reset the usb stick from there00:59
ducktypesacarlson: i'm running 10.10 from rackspace preloaded images01:00
cyberjunk502hello i am new to ubuntu, i have dual boot with windows whenever i access the windows partition an icon gets placed on the desktop which i don't want any solutions01:00
KingpokeOk those suckers are there its just a matter of finding them let me look at my windows machine cause i cant remember where they are01:00
wytnevermind kingpoke01:00
wyti found it01:00
sacarlsonducktype: I guess you don't have it isntalled I see it as a package  sudo apt-get install apparmor01:00
KingpokeYou did? YAY! Im sorry but i havent used windows in over 6 years so i havent had that problem01:01
Kingpokewyt: You can also install clam-av and run a virus scan in those folders!01:01
ducktypesacarlson: much thanks :) strange that i have /etc/apparmor* also without the package01:02
cyberjunk502hello i am new to ubuntu, i have dual boot with windows whenever i access the windows partition an icon gets placed on the desktop which i don't want any solutions01:02
ledfeatherno one knows why its doing this?01:02
DimitreeOh... did i mention that i installed the 10.10 beta with the same USB stick and it worked?01:02
Scunizicyberjunk502: when mounted that is the link to the windows partition.  there is a way to eliminate that from happening but will also get rid of icons for usb sticks etc.. unfortunately someone else will have to guide you on how to eliminate it.01:03
Kingpokewyt: To be more precise you can use Clamtk its in the sofware center01:03
sharemijk: try System > Preferences > Monitors01:04
sacarlsonledfeather: you said you installed to usb stick with wubi?  that's not the utility needed to install a bootable system to usb01:05
sharemijk: don't forget you dont have graphic card drivers installed01:05
ledfeatherwhat could i do if my computer is set to boot removables first and it doesnt?01:05
mijkworks perfect in OS X01:05
ledfeatherno, i said i gave up and tried it in wubi01:05

sacarlsonledfeather: and watch out for the fake usb flash drives that say they have 2 gb and only have 100meg01:07
ledfeatherive remade the stick four times. ive re-ordered my boot sequence every way i can, and even disabled everything but the usb. it told me to insert 'proper' boot disks01:07

sacarlsonledfeather: try reformat your flash drive and just copy the iso file to it just to verify it will hold the contents without coruption do a md5sum on the iso and see that it matches what it should.01:08
sacarlsonledfeather: if that works then install with instructions posted in the links above01:09
Scuniziwhy would a package be held back when doing a update/upgrade/dist-upgrade?01:11
sacarlsonledfeather: before you do that maybe try boot the usb flash on another system,  if that works maybe your bios won't boot usb,  then look at trying plop01:11

t4nkDHi -- I actually seem to be having more of a general PC issue that I'm not sure how to resolve. I have a machine that whenever I get into loading any kind of kernel(it seems) the computer just shuts off. This includes Unbuntu 8.01; when I try to "load ubuntu without installing" the system simply powers off. This also happened when trying to run SystemRestore utilities(a linux based hardware test suite) -- are there any usual things I01:16
t4nkDcheck that might be wrong with the hardware itself?01:16

joey_1Does anybody know how to configure Ubuntu and Eclipse to always use the Java SDK instead of the OpenJDK?01:55
Armageddonjoey_1, I think that's an eclipse question !01:55
andykrissi am trying to clone the drive but the cloned drive keeps asking for a password01:55
joey_1Armageddon: okay, I'll rephrase, does anybody know how to get Ubuntu to use JavaSDK by default? I'll try to configure eclipse separately...01:56
JosephUbuntucan anyone help me with my issue: http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1032167901:56
sacarlsont4nkD: did you look at any bios setings?  maybe there is power off setting in there01:56
joey_1Even when I run .jar files it uses openJDK01:56
t4nkDscarlson: Yeah, I had reset the BIOS settings to fail-safe defaults and there's no temp shutdown setting active01:56
Nanohais the 10.10 version of ubuntu-server broken?01:57
sacarlsont4nkD: I have change power setings in one system so that it will auto turn on when power applied and auto restart on power failure01:57
thekidNanoha: broken in what context?01:58
t4nkDscarlson: I wasn't sure if there was some kind of weird, PCI conflict, but I'm not sure how to diagnose that, or, use boot params that could troubleshoot that.01:58
bawnhey, everybody, how do i change services that start up on boot like timidity and tor01:58
JosephUbuntuI really need help with my issue, i haven't received any help in three weeks: http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=1032167901:58
Nanohameaning that when the base installs that it dies upon trying to install the kernal-headers-pae (I th ink that's right)01:58
sacarlsont4nkD: those are just setable in the bios menu01:58
=== Guest17936 is now known as _________xD
JosephUbuntubawn: you use startup applications01:59
sacarlsont4nkD: it could be a power supply problem,  if voltage drops too low it will auto power off,  at boot time when system starts to draw more power I may shut down due to powersupply problem02:00
thekidJosephUbuntu: your init scripts are messed up most likely ( it doesn't start at boot, yet you can start it manually so there's nothing wrong with the X configuration ) , so the problem is somewhere in /etc/rc* ....02:00
joey_1JosephUbuntu: have you looked at /etc/default/grub to see what the default boot option is? What if it's really booting into recovery by default?02:00
JosephUbuntuah, thanks, but how do i fix the init things?02:00
JosephUbuntui'll check that out02:01
joey_1JosephUbuntu: if you edit /etc/default/grub, make sure to run sudo-update grub02:01
t4nkDsacarlson: yeah I had thought about that but had the feeling if it was that serious I wouldn't get to the boot select screens or get thru kernel load02:01
schnuffle1josep: have a look at /etc/inittab02:01
thekidJosephUbuntu: that's a good question , really hard to do, you have to paste a bunch of logs to pastebin.ca or something... not that simple to debug over irc02:01
JosephUbuntushould i post grub or something else?02:01
sacarlsont4nkD: ya most my power supply failures never got that far02:02

sacarlsont4nkD: if  you set it to reboot it will02:03
joey_1JosephUbunutu: I'm not an expert, but the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT seems to have a lot of extra options to it, possibly that could be related to the problem?02:03
JosephUbuntuschnuffle: in what file?02:03
sacarlsont4nkD: you can disable it in the bios02:04
schnuffle1level should be 302:04
lorbsis there any way to share a dvd-rom drive similarly to win7/os x?02:04
t4nkDsacarlson: yeah, maybe I can get some insight from messing with BIOS resets02:04
stevecamhow do i manage the max volume that ubuntu is allowed to go02:04
JosephUbuntuschnuffle, there is no such file02:04
joey_1JosephUbuntu: ie mine is only GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" do you have some sort of special video configuration?02:04
JosephUbuntui had messed around with plymouth02:04
JosephUbuntuit might be because of that02:04
itaylor57joey_1 you need to add universe repository and dowload the sun6 jdk and jre02:04
joey_1JosephUbuntu: addressing your security concerns: part of the idea of recovery mode (Single User Mode) is to be able to boot right into root to fix things when they break, so if it's going into recovery mode, my understanding is that it's perfectly normal to not have to enter the root password. (I'm I'm wrong, someone please feel free to correct me)02:05
Nanohahey, when ubuntu desktop 10.10 is loading, is there anyway I can see what is going on?02:05
Loshkischnuffle1: /etc/inittab doesn't exist in Ubuntu...02:05
JosephUbuntuah, thanks02:05
JosephUbuntushould i try changing the option to quiet splash?02:05
joey_1JosephUbuntu: try setting it to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" at first, see if you can boot without the splash screen02:06
NixGeekJosephUbuntu, JosephUbuntu:  it is completly normal to not have to enter a password in recovery mode02:06
sacarlsonjoey_1: no that is correct there is no login to root on single user02:06
joey_1JosephUbuntu: then try quiet splash02:06
JosephUbuntuis it normal that grub is owned by me?02:06
JosephUbuntuand not root?02:06
mrrothanyone know of a nas that works simmilar to the drobo, but it open source / free02:06
itaylor57joey_1 this will show you how to configure eclipse https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EclipseIDE02:07
joey_1JosephUbuntu: no, don't think that's normal. you can probably edit it without root, but it should stop you when you try to save it...02:07
JosephUbuntui was just able to save it without anything02:07

joey_1Thanks again itaylor! I'll see if that does it...02:07
mrrothschnuffle1 were the link02:08
joey_1JosephUbuntu: that's odd for a file in /etc... unless you're logged in as root because it was booting into recovery mode? just a guess02:08

Nanohaokay, I need some serious help here.  I've got a server with a 2TB file system, via LVM, looks like I've mucked everything up to the point to where ubuntu-desktop won't boot off the live cd (can not mount /dev/loop0)  I guess I need to split apart and delete the lvm, but I can't find anyway to do that, only deleteing the logical volumes.02:10
tripelbwyt and did you check your internet connection?02:10
sacarlsonwyt: is it wifi?02:10
wytlol yes its fine02:10
wytyes im on wifi02:10
bawni want to change the startup services that happen before i log in, does anybody know a program or configuration file i can use to change stuff02:10
tripelbI'm of the 'is it plugged in" school. lol someone else will have to handle this. I suppose you could be dropping and reconnecting.02:11
sacarlsonwyt: wifi must be flaky02:11
wytits not the internet, the problem occurs at the same point every time02:11
wytand i using irc and it doesn show any probs witht the internet02:11
bawnthe startup applications app is useless for what i am trying to do02:11
sacarlsonwyt: try change repository mirror site then02:11
wytno idea what that means02:11
tripelboh. wyt, perhaps there is 1. a torrent 2. another site.  BTW I never have success with Synaptic. I only use terminal.02:12

Jordan_UNanoha: Did you ever have a working system?02:12
tripelbsacarlson, how do you change to a mirror?02:12
Nanohayes, yesterday before I upgraded to 10.1002:12
bawnwyt a repository is where the software comes from, and the mirror is the server that sends it to you02:12

Nanohaafter that, I loaded up the tty and ran the termainal command to try to upgrade, that made thigns worse02:13
Nanohato the point of my hostname process not working02:14
JosephUbuntuso that's why it booted badly02:14

Nanohaearlier tonight I tried to install a fresh copy of 10.10, but I think the LVM I had got corrupted or something02:14

NanohaI've already lost all the data I had on the server (not happy)02:15

NanohaI tried to remove the LVM, deleted the logical partitions.  I'm pretty sure it's all gone02:16

JosephUbuntuso what do i do to get the splash back?02:22
NanohaJordan_U: okay, I'll try that02:23

cschneidWhat's the package I can't think of that provides a sendmail binary? I know several do, but is it postfix?02:24
naiadcan the cli install be run from a regular cd?  ( as in getting a minimial install but just using the cd for all it's packages )?02:24
ducktypei've created /etc/init/mytest.conf file but start mytest tells "unkown job name", someone know what i'm missing?02:24
schnuffle1postfix is a good choice02:24
cschneidschnuffle1: cool, I just need the sendmail tool, do I need the service running?  I assume no, but... dunno02:25
Jordan_UNanoha: No, the option you want is "Analyse current partition structure and search for lost partitions".02:25
ducktypecschneid: for something VERY simple msmtp has a sendmail compatible interface, just make a link sendmail > msmstp02:26
NanohaJordan_U: how/where do I find that?  Assuming I'm staring at the live cd inital menu02:26
cschneidducktype: making a note, apt-get already beat you to postfix :)02:26
sacarlsonnaiad: you can us a cd as an added repository if that's what you mean02:26

naiadsacarlson, so still use the mini.iso but once booted put in a regular cd and add it as a repo? or can i do the entire minimial install off say the desktop iso?02:27
Jordan_UNanoha: Boot using the option "Try Ubuntu without installing", install testdisk via Applications > Ubuntu Software Center, then open a terminal and run "sudo testdisk".02:27
JosephUbuntuyay!  it works great!02:27
JosephUbuntuthanks for the help02:27
JosephUbuntui'll post the solution on ubuntu forums02:27

naiadsacarlson, thanks02:28
NanohaJordan_U: I don't remember seeing that option.  I've got the server flavor of 10.10 on a cd02:28
NanohaI'll check again thoguh02:28
Loshkibawn: what is the problem you're trying to solve?02:28
Jordan_UNanoha: It's possible to do this from the server CD, but much easier to do it from the Desktop CD.02:28
schnuffle1bawn: depends if it upstart /etc/init if sysv /etc/init.d02:28
NanohaJordan_U: I've got:  Install Ubuntu server, Install ubuntu enterprise cloud, check disk for defects, test memory, boot form first hard disk and rescue a broken system02:29
kannanlooking at the startup scripts, i see a /usr/share/postgresql-common/init.d-functions file with a get_versions() that returns both 8.4 and 9.0. is there a simple override/switch that i could use?02:29

ducktypeabout upstart: i've created "/etc/init/mytest.conf" file but "start mytest" tells "unkown job name", someone know what i'm missing?02:29

cschneidsure enough.  I'm not positive it can do avi out, but I think it can02:32
LoshkiRoasted: dvdrip is a full-featured gui for turning dvds into avis....02:32
NanohaJordan_U: would I use the rescue a broken system, and then dump to a root termanal?02:32
dr4c4nisrafil: have you tried from nvidia-settings?02:32
sacarlsonwyt: university sites are normaly good02:33
RoastedLoshki, I'm not turning a "DVD" into an avi, unless a DVD = VIDEO_TS. Ijust have a VIDEO_TS I want to host on my web server but I'd rather host it as 1 file (AVI)02:33
cschneidRoasted: FYI - my mac copy of handbrake doesn't have AVI out, just MP4 and MKV02:33
Jordan_UNanoha: You can try that, it might fail though since I think that attempts a chroot (which would require your system's root to be mountable).02:33
ducktypeschnuffle1: seemd right but still the same errro02:33
Roastedcschneid, yeah, but that's Mac. :P02:33
NanohaJordan_U: yeah, that's the big problem I'm having.  i can't mount anything on the hard drives right now02:33
cschneid:) it's like a very pretty unix for my desktop, then all ubuntu, all the time on the server.02:33

sacarlsonwyt: it's sometime better to pick one on that's 12 hours time zone appart since they will be sleeping there02:34
Roastedcschneid, pretty maybe. functional? not so sure :P02:34

Roastedbp0, what version of what02:34
israfildr4c4n: yes, it wors, but i don't know if i can edit it with nvidia-settings so that it looks normally02:34

tripelbchrome stalled AGAIN using all the memory. I closed all the tabs but one. still froz. does anyone else have that issue?  If not then it's something about my computer. Advice?  10.0402:48
sacarlsoncablop: is your swap partition big enuf for the memory you now have in your system?  it must be as big or biger then mem size to hybernate02:48
LoshkiRoasted: grab frame will populate the preview images and allow you to set crop/clip/zoom parameters. Unless you are doing something fancy, you can probably skip direct to the transcode tab02:49

racinescan anyone link me to a tutorial on how to save work on a live cd? I put ubuntu on my USB and I would like to be able to save my work (its an 8Gb USB so it should be able to hold enough of what I want)02:58
neizracines: not sure of links, but that is called a "persistent" usb02:59
racinesmy friend has a USB with ubuntu live on it02:59
racinesand he isn't using persistance02:59
racinesi'm not sure how he did it as I don't have any contact with him right now02:59
neizracines: basically you partition the USB.  One part for the live OS and 1 part for the data you which you want to be persistant.. I'll search for a good tutorial02:59
Doinkleracines, install ubunto to usb and boot to usb from bios.03:00
racinesWell no no, I don't want persistance03:00
Doinkleyou just want the usb to be a storage area for ??03:00
racinesFor some reason the live option takes less time to load03:00
Doinklewell you can make the usb bootable(hence live) and store your data on the usb drive03:01
racineswait I don't understand what you mean03:05
wasutton3r00t4rd3d: i am actually writing a script right now so as to keep the settings and everything so that once its perfect, i can nuke it and just run the script and it works perfectly03:05
pr0ph3thi all03:05
r00t4rd3dwrite me one too03:05
pr0ph3tI have a problem with my mobile broadband, I can't connect even if the modem is recognised03:05
racinesare you saying if I run ubuntu in live mode, save a file, install a theme, restart the computer, boot back into live mode again, all the work will still be there?03:05
racinesor will it all be gone?03:05
r00t4rd3dacutally if I backed up my home folder I would have just about everything03:05

kaznvm im hi03:06
racinesI used Unetbootin to make the live usb03:06
schnuffle1normally it will be lost but you can make it persistent03:06

kazit should, especially if its unetboot03:08
r00t4rd3dcrohakon, apt-get install sysinfo03:08

kazdude theres no reason to put linux on a usb unless you need it to store small installationa nd small files03:10
schnuffle1racine:the normal ubuntu usb install willloose everything after reboot, but you can change that03:10
Kumar_Indracines, it wont disapear if you installed it accordingly..03:10
racines<kaz> it should, especially if its unetboot03:10
r00t4rd3dcrohakon, you on u-server ?03:10
=== root is now known as Guest40999
racinesI didn't install it on my USB, I just used unetbootin so it can be a live-usb03:11
kazlike i said no reason it shouldnt save03:11
bonjoyeeracines: if this is a liveusb created with unetbootin..you will loose all settings03:11
crohakonr00t4rd3d,  u-server?03:11
r00t4rd3dGuest40999, you know i could trick you into killing your install running irc as root ?03:11
r00t4rd3dubuntu server03:11
kazpz rac03:12
bonjoyeeracines: to be able to save these settings..created a liveusb with persistence,,,using startup disk creator..found on ubuntu03:12
racinesNo because persistance seems to have a longer load time than live03:12
ilyakracines: did you install it on a usb drive and create a persistance file ?03:12
racinesAlso my friend was able to do it without using persistance03:12
crohakonr00t4rd3d, yeah I have an ubuntu server just for messing around with... mostly just trying to learn as much about it as I can...03:13
racinesI'm not exactly sure how but he boots into live-mode with saved work, not sure how he did it though03:13
r00t4rd3dcrohakon, you can install X on that you know03:13
Jordan_Uracines: I recommend just doing a standard install rather than trying to setup persistance.03:13
DoinkleJordan_U, i tried to tell him. :/03:13
pr0ph3tcrohakon, also if you type lshw -html > file.html you'll have it all saved into a nice file which you can view with lynx (web browser for command line)03:13
racinesInstall on a USB??03:14
Jordan_Uracines: Yes.03:14
racinesI've tried that all ready, it failed to boot after I did it03:14
racinesmade a partition for "/", "/home" and "swap"03:14
Jordan_Uracines: What version of Ubuntu, and what happened when you tried to boot?03:14
crohakonpr0b13, I already did it that.. though, to a text file not html.03:14
racinesIt just wouldn't boot. Blank screen03:14
racinesBut back to the point03:14
racinesis persistance the only way?03:15
Jordan_Uracines: What version of Ubuntu?03:15
racinesI have live usb ubuntu 10.1003:15
bonjoyeeracines: where did u install the grub boot loader when doing the usb install?03:15
racinesis it possible to do it without persistance? as persistance seems to startup slower for me03:15
breadcrumbi once tried installing ubuntu to a usb drive. it worked, but was extremely slow reading/writing from the drive. took like 45 minutes just to install it03:15
pr0ph3tcrohakon, it's not the same thing, but up to you03:15
racinesUh I believe I put it on my "/" partition03:15
racinesbut really, I just want to know how to save data on LIVE mode, not persistance mode, because persistance mode seems to have a longer startup time than live03:16
Jordan_Uracines: Installing a bootloader to a partition doesn't make much sense (it's mostly a windows thing). The BIOS loads what's in the mbr, so that's where the bootloader should be installed (among other reasons).03:16
bonjoyeeracines: in that case u should have selected usb as the boot device..and not your regular hdd...03:16
Doinkleracines, you -DO- realize not all usb drives are the same.  some are slower than others.  possible you are basing your opinions on an older(or low quality) thumb drive?03:17
racinesWell I guess I have to stick with persistance mode03:17
r00t4rd3dsandisk extreme ftw !03:17
racinesHowever, unetbootin does not give me any "persistance" option03:17
racinesI guess I have to use the startup disk creator? or is there another option?03:18
nit-witracines, how big is the thumb03:18
schnuffle1racine: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCD/Persistence03:18

TiktalikCan you set up a lan to play games on with a windows 7 and xubuntu computer?03:59
NanohaJordan_U: It's been running fine for the past five years!  LOL03:59
wrektjethow do u toggle the pathway from icons/buttons to a line of text03:59
Jordan_UNanoha: So the last working release was 10.04?04:00
NanohaJordan_U: 9.04, but I don't have an image of that any more04:00
sharewhen next version comes out04:00
Tiktalik Can you set up a lan to play games on with a windows 7 and xubuntu computer?04:00
sharek and then october04:00
TiktalikOr will that totally not work?04:01
Nach0zr00t4rd3d : it still refuses to install. Nanoha : i can't run dpkg --configure on a package that isn't installed :/04:01
Jordan_UTiktalik: Setting up a LAN just requires a switch. Whether you can host a game server on Ubuntu depends on the game.04:02
NanohaJordan_U: Let me try downloading and installing a fresh copy of 10.04.  I think it was mentioned around 14:00 today that *.10 is the development version?04:02
Danny78_secretary_linux:  I'm really liking the HP Pavilion you recommended04:02
Danny78_especially the price04:03
Jordan_UNanoha: No, 10.10 is a stable release, just not a long term support release.04:03
r00t4rd3dNach0z, run synaptic package manager , goto Edit , Fix broken packages , try that04:03
Jordan_UNanoha: So the problems first started when you tried to upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10?04:03
NanohaJordan_U: when I tried to upgrade from 9.04 to 10.10...I'm guessing that's what the upgrade command did04:04
christopher10.04 was LTS04:04
Borreguitohi.... help me.  my CMI8738 have problems04:04
TiktalikI meant wireless jordan.04:04
KM0201Nanoha: ugh.. 9.04 to 10.10..04:04
Jordan_UNanoha: You can't skip releases (exept from one LTS release to the next). So it would be 9.04 to 9.10, 9.10 to 10.04, then 10.04 to 10.10.04:04
Tiktalikshould have specified.04:04
Nach0zr00t4rd3d: it's a server. it doesn't have a GUI :/ unless there's a terminal version of synaptic that I don't know about?04:05
KM0201Tiktalik: are you saying your wireless device isn't working?04:05
TiktalikUh, no.04:05
christopherIf 9.04 was LTS, you can just got 10.04 LTS,then to 10.1004:05
Nanohahmm, interesting, cause after the upgrade and the reboot, I saw 10.10.  So how would I upgrade to 9.10?04:05
TiktalikJust wondering if it's possible to set up a wlan to play games on with one computer xubuntu and one windows 7.04:06
meaniefaceNach0z: you could use aptitude04:06
Jordan_UNanoha: Then you probably were actually using 10.04 previously, which would be good because 10.04 is still supported (9.04 is not).04:06
Jordan_UNanoha: Where did you see "10.10"?04:06
Nanohaokay.  Well, in another 20 minutes I'll see if a fresh 10.04 workds.04:07
NanohaJordan_U: I saw it at the boot up.  Welcome to Ubuntu!  I remember seeing 10.10 on the text screen04:07

rigelis there some way to change the perms on a read-only filesystem?04:12
xanguaalienf2: lxde04:12
rigeli dont want to write, but i want to give my wife read access to this drive image04:13
Jordan_Urigel: Linux cannot write to journaled hfsplus.04:13
alienf2thanks xangua04:13
rigelJordan_U: it's a read-only image anyway04:13
rigeli just need to give her read access to it over the network04:13
rigelso that she can copy over files she wants to keep04:13
rigelbut i am a little scared to give her root04:14
gustavoldI've copied some data from an ext4 partition to an ext3 partition and the ocuped size on the destination is almost 3 times the size of the original... is this expected? Is this due to different parameters or filesystem differences?04:14
Nanoharigel: why not just set the permisions for her group to be read only (744) ?04:14
gustavoldcopied using rsync -a04:14
rigelNanoha: i apparently cant change perms on this loop-mounted hfs+ image04:14

chrono_hello guys, i am having some problems trying to compile linux 2.6.37 on Ubuntu maverick04:15
alienf2wubi does not work with Ubuntu 10.10 anyone know anything?    :p04:15
Nanoharigel: I think you need to tweak fstab to enable r/w on that drive04:15
rigelNanoha: i dont need r/w04:15
rigelits not in fstab. it's a drive image04:16
Jordan_Ualienf2: Wubi works as well with 10.10 as it does with any other version of Ubuntu. What problem are you having specifically?04:16
Danny78_are there any companies online that let you build an AMD laptop?04:16
Nanoharigel: it's an ISO?04:16
chrono_the error i found is: dpkg-gencontrol: error: package linux-image-2.6.37.custom not in control info04:16
rigelan .img, yes04:16
chrono_can anyone help me?04:16
zarqhey danny i belive asus has barebooks for sale04:16
NanohaDanny78_: check out Asus.  I think they do04:16
KM0201Danny78: i believe tigerdirect has a "build your own" laptop also.04:17
Danny78_Nanoha:  what a koikidink, most of the computers I've built are ASUS04:17
Nanoharigel: so you need to mount the .img file as a directory, then once inside, you should be able to set the permsssions accordingly04:17
rigelhere's the story. I got her to move to ubuntu with the new computer. i imaged her mac drive onto our main fileserver. i am mounting her hfs+ image loopback, and want to give her full access to read anything on the drive04:17
rigelit's mounted, but it's ro04:17
Danny78_KM0201:  Have you had good experieinces with Tiger Direct?  I only ask because I've never done business with them04:18
alienf2only works with 10.04 liters to 10.10 do not start   :)04:18
bluegoonHi guys04:18
KM0201Danny78: i've used tigerdirect for years(at least 10) and have probably placed every bit of 15-20k worth of orders from them, been very happy.04:18
bluegoonPackage sun-java6-jre is not available04:18
Danny78_Hi bluegoon04:18
aryr100can anyone tell the command line address for ubuntu keyserver (i.e gpg -keyserver #####)04:18
bluegoonDanny78, hey Danny, Package sun-java6-jre is not available, any ideas?04:18
KM0201Danny78: but the "build to order" laptops, are systemax laptops... . i dunno if tht changes your opinion or not.04:19
chrono_hello guys, i am having some problems trying to compile linux 2.6.37 on Ubuntu maverick04:19
chrono_the error i found is: dpkg-gencontrol: error: package linux-image-2.6.37.custom not in control info04:19
chrono_can anyone help me?04:19
Danny78_KM0201:  that sounds pretty bonafide.04:19
Nanoharigel: mount -o remount,rw / maybe?04:19
Jordan_UNanoha: He doesn't want write access.04:19
KM0201Danny78: yeah, they ar located in Illinois, and w/ me being in Indiana... if i order before noon, pay for 7 day shipping, i usually have it at my door the next day around 4:0004:19
Danny78_KM0201:  I'm sqeamish of that , yeah, because my HP Pavilion was a nightmare, so now I don't know who to trust04:19
Nanohai don't understand the problem then04:20
rigelNanoha: i was hoping there was a mount option that would let me set the uid/gid/umask on all the files on the image04:20
rigelbut i'm not having any luck with that04:20
bluegoonIs Sun Java 6 JRE available to ubuntu?04:20
bonjoyeebluegoon: enable the necessary repos...04:20
NanohaLike i said before, I would just set the permissions for the Everybody group to 404:20
bluegoonbonjoyee, on 10.10, where do I do that? :)04:20
rigelNanoha: it's a read-only filesystem04:21
rigelcan you even do that with loopback devices?04:21
bluegoonbonjoyee, you mean Software Sources?  Where is that option in 10.10?04:21
rigeli have always thought not04:21
Nanohaif it's a read only file system, and you don't want her to write,then I really don't understand what the issue is04:21
Jordan_Urigel: You can have writeable loopback devices, just not writeable journaled hfsplus (loopback or not).04:21
rigelshe cant read anything, so she cant see the files she wants to copy from her old drive04:22
bonjoyeebluegoon: im using debian this moment..but feel it should be the partner or multiverse04:22
Nanohawhat are the permssions on the files?04:22
bluegoonbonjoyee, ko04:22
rigelthey vary04:23
rigellike on any filesystem04:23
rigelJordan_U: any ideas?04:23
NanohaI was meaning anything obvious like a 700 or something04:23
Jordan_Urigel: Do you get any error message from mount when you try to use the uid= option? Can you try adding a bogus=nonsense option (to see if it's just silently discarding options it doesn't recognise)?04:23
Danny78_Sorry if I'm off topic a bit, but I am shopping for a Ubuntu laptop... question:  is 5400 RPM typical in laptop HDDs?04:23
rigelno, no error messages from uid= or gid=04:23
KM0201Danny78: in my experience, yes.04:23
rigelit threw an error with file_umask and dir_umask04:23
KM0201Danny78: do this... look at 4-5 models you'd like to try ubuntu on... then get on google, and google "HP xxxx ubuntu 10.10" and see what kind of hits you get04:24
Danny78_KM0201--  good idea, thanks, will do04:25
rigeli realize this isnt an ubuntu specific question, might there be another channel where i should try?04:25
KM0201Danny78: if you notice one w/ significant problems, then drop it from consideration04:25
Jordan_Urigel: ##linux maybe.04:25
KM0201Danny78: honestly, thats how i bought my acer laptop 5yrs ago... eneded up working out perfectly, right down to the patch fixes to fix my wireless(don't need them anymore)04:25
bonjoyeebluegoon: its in partner repo!04:27
bluegoonbonjoyee, thanks man, for some reason they disabled software sources in 10.10 ?04:28
bluegoonbonjoyee, got it working cheers :)04:28
bonjoyeebluegoon: hmm...but u can access that from synaptic/software center as well as the terminal..anyways glad i worked:)04:29
bluegoonbonjoyee, sweet :)04:30
christopherI'm using 10.10 Netbook Edition, and I cannot get prism apps to stay in the launcher after a reboot, any ideas on how to fix that?04:31

Danny78_If I use Ubuntu on a laptop, am I safe for being able to share files and work with peoples' macs and wind machines?04:35
VOTalentthis is probably a stretch asking here, but does anyone here have a LynxTWO audio card working successfully with 10.10?04:36
inigoi say leave those windows machines alone04:36
VOTalentDanny, yes04:36
muhammadnkdoes anybody know how to i set files created by apache (via WebDAV) according to the LDAP user?04:37
christopher@Danny78 all of my home pc's and laptops are running 100% Ubuntu, and I share files with the work (windows) PC's all the time... works like a champ04:37
muhammadnksince the system itself is tied to the ldap.04:37
Danny78_VOTalent:  basically, I'm a therapist who needs to take notes and share with boss, colleagues, also doing marketing (FB, Go Daddy, Google Ad Space, et. al.)04:38
Danny78_christopher:  great, cause I'm sick of Windows04:38
VOTalentDanny78_, how would you typically share the files?04:38
VOTalentDanny78_, If you're just copying files to and from a shared server, you're set.04:39
alienf2ubuntu 11.00 ?04:39
alienf2 :)04:39
Danny78_VOTalent--  either through a web file-storage app or directly through Flash drive I suppose, or email of course04:39
KM0201Danny78: your best bet under those circumstances04:39
KM0201is to dual boot for a while04:39
VOTalentDanny78, You won't have any problems at all if that's the case.04:40
christopher@Danny78 ya... I'm much happier switching to linux, a lot of stress went out the door when windows was removed04:40
alienf2ubuntu 11.00 ?04:40
KM0201Danny78: get a laptop, or whatever you want, and dual boot, so if you run into an issue you can't immediately figure out, you have windows to fall back on... even if you only leave windows on a small partition... if you bring the laptop home, and immediately nuke windos for ubuntu, w/ your experience level... you'll have windows reinstalled within a week04:40
Danny78_KM0201:  dual boot is tempting, but I've had baaaad experiences with Windows not playing nice, even when it gets first dibs to the boot loader04:40
christopherAlso, I use a 16 Gig Thumb drive for most (almost all) my file transferring... works great04:41
KM0201Danny78: then honestly, you'e probably not set it up properly.. dual booting is quite easy04:41
* Ripper_Owens rocks the dual boot04:41
* KM0201 dual booted for a year before finally ridding myself of MS04:41
VOTalentDanny78, In my studio, I have Mac, Windows XP and Ubuntu.  You can do it without the dual boot04:41
VOTalentBut if you're really concerned, I'd just install the OS on a thumbdrive and get the tests out of the way04:42
Dark_Spyro_003Hi there. I hope this is the right place to ask: My Ubuntu machine (I'm using desktop 10.10) doesn't boot anymore once I place my ATI Radeon HD 4600 graphics card into the computer. It doesn't even show the splashscreen after I select to boot my Ubuntu system. Just some strange codes? I wonder if there's any way to fix that. The integrated graphics card isn't worth anything :|04:42

Danny78_Blue1:  It boots and says in a boxed window that there's a bootable cd in the drive, and then it hangs during bootup, just freezes  (has 256MB RAM, AMD K6204:45
Blue1Danny78_: are you doing the desktop install or the alternatate install?  256 m is pretty slim04:46
Danny78_I wrote on it "Mini ubuntu 10.04.1"04:46

Danny78_Blue1:  it was supposed to be the most stripped down for old comps, from the Ubuntu site04:48
Blue1Danny78_: in my experience with the compaq, I had to do the alternate install04:48
Danny78_Blue1:  You think a 500MHz processor could handle it?04:49
Blue1Danny78_: I have never heard of mini ubuntu what is the url for it?04:49

Danny78_they're between 7 and 12 MB04:50
Blue1Danny78_: okay that's already using the alternate install (text based) which makes sense -- I'd md5sum that sucker04:51
Blue1Danny78_: and on a machine that old, you need to write (burn) the disc at the slowest speed -- 1X if possible04:51
Danny78_Blue1:  yeah, I reading into that cause it's been years, and yes I know that's really bad practice04:52

MTughan_laptopI'm trying to use the CPU frequency applet on my GNOME desktop. It appears to grab the CPU speed correctly, but I can't change it. Some Google results turned up adding the SUID bit to /usr/bin/cpufreq-selector, but that didn't help, and running the command under sudo doesn't do anything. What can I try next?05:12

liny_manDanny78: im using a pda to connect, and was unable to catch your question. what was it?05:14
MTughan_laptopouyes: Could be many things. Could be that your hard drive can't read data off your drive fast enough. It could be that the CPU can't decode the video quite fast enough. It's likely a bottleneck somewhere though.05:14

MTughan_laptopouyes: Well, a 1080p H.264 encoded file is a lot of data to decode. It might be too much for the 2GHz processor you have, given that I don't think the radeon driver for your graphics card supports hardware decoding.05:21

linux_probehmm, 5yr old laptop ehh05:59
Suntzushcherbak: hmmm, I tried xubuntu live-cd...didn't work :(05:59
Danny78liny_man:  I tried slitaz...  now I'm burning DSL05:59
shcherbakSuntzu: other option is to use external usbhub (if you have serial port it may work)05:59
n-iCeHi... when you close a shell and reopen a new one, and you press the up key, it shows the last thing you typed, how do I delete that historial?05:59

Danny78liny_man:  well, we'll see if DSL does the trick06:00
denilen-iCe, try history -c06:01
Suntzushcherbak: nop...I have no way out....because the only thing I can use is the rj-45 port..so I think it would be a solution to send all my files to the desktop pc, via thin client...what do you think about it?06:01

beav_35I am trying to connect to a Win7 computer using Ubuntu and I keep getting "session setup failed: SUCCESS - 0".  What does this mean?06:02
shcherbakchristopher: you do not06:02
Doinkleliny_man, slitaz is nice :)06:02
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)06:02
n-iCeDoinkle: yeah, got it, thanks06:03
liny_manDoinkle: what is slitaz?06:03
christopherAlright. I'm looking to practise installing a program and I figured I could try nmap06:03
shcherbakchristopher: what do you want to install?06:03
Dark_Spyro_003Hello everyone! If anyone knows what could cause "No init found. Try passing init =bootarg." when trying to boot using my ATI graphics card? Ubuntu (and the CD for that matter) only boot succesfully using my onboard gfx card. Thanks if ya can help me with this!06:03
Suntzushcherbak: well, the desktop pc has 2 network cards...so I thought it would be useful to connect the laptop to one of the cards06:03

DoinkleDanny__,    ???06:04
Danny__Doinkle:  I just tried installing slitaz but it won't boot06:05
DoinkleDanny__, no idea.  works fine for me06:05
Doinklei dont use it much tho06:05
shcherbakSuntzu: less hussle would be to scp everything.06:05
shcherbakchristopher: nmap is in repos06:05
christopherI'm sorry, I'm very new. What is repos?06:06
Doinklechristopher, software repositories06:06
Danny__christopher:  repos are just what we call software packages06:06
christophersudo etc etc?06:06
Doinkleif you are "new", nmap isnt the best thing to start with :/06:06
Suntzushcherbak: scp?06:06
shcherbakchristopher: sudo apt-get install nmap06:06
liny_manchristopher: sudo apt-get it.06:06
christopherSo I can install it by using the terminal?06:07
Danny__Doinkle:  what would you recommend starting with before nmap?06:07
shcherbakchristopher: yes.06:07
Madpilotchristopher, the stuff that gets installed when you invoke "sudo apt-get install..." comes from the repos06:07
DoinkleDanny__, in what context?06:07
christopherI understand now06:07
shcherbakSuntzu: ssh tool06:07
Danny__Doinkle:  security, ethical hacking06:07
shcherbakSuntzu: like cp, but over ssh06:07
tripelbhow do I get to use switcher if there is no room for it on the panel06:07
christopherIs there a tutorial for Ubuntu noobs that want to learn more?06:07
DoinkleDanny__, check out some of the distros geared toward that.  if you need examples let me know06:08
Madpilotchristopher, best thing to do is just poke around, hang out here and ask questions as they occur.06:08
shcherbakchristopher: yes, on ubuntu site06:08

Doinklechristopher, youtube has a ton of video tutorials too.  worth checking out06:09
shcherbakchristopher: http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Maverick06:09

christopherThanks a lot.06:09
Danny__Doinkle:  I tried Fedora 14 Security Spin and couldn't even get it connected to the net, and it ran really slow, otherwise I';; have to see what's out there06:10

Suntzushcherbak: well, I have to do it...one, because I have a lot of important files to rescue...two, because I want to use this laptop as the display of the desktop pc (x formarding, right?)06:13
dr0idPryMaL: but I want to go into the koans directory06:13
Danny__Doinkle:  I heard of BackTrack and wanted to check it out, but I just found Ubuntu and it works...  and I'm not sure how to dual boot linuix on linux06:13
DoinkleDark_Spyro_003, most stick with nvidia06:13
liny_mandr0id: whats ur question?06:13
DoinkleDanny__, why bother, just boot the live cd image.  no need to install most of them06:13
dr0idI want to go into /var/www/koans, not I first executed cd /var/www then what should I do ?06:14

XyresicWhen I booted from the live disk,  I somehow had /dev/sda1-6007:08
XyresicNo, I can't... grub goes into recovery mode07:08
XyresicAnd I don't have 60 partitions07:08
Jpapertowelsneed help with using fakeraid (software raid doesnt support grub boot from raid0)...anyone? wiki doesnt have answers07:08

XyresicLike, a lot of the partitions repeated theself S:07:08
XyresicIs there a fix? D;?07:09
sacarlsonraviepic3: is there any other ports active on the server to verify that your ip is correct?07:09

=== Guest6411 is now known as thx1138
Jordan_UJpapertowels: I think that grub2 actually does support booting from raid0.07:10
almoxarifeXyresic: I would suggest you first restore the MBR with a restore disk07:10
XyresicJordan_U: sec, lemme get onto the live disk again07:10
XyresicLike, with a Windows restore CD?07:11
almoxarifeXyresic: yeah07:11

JpapertowelsJordan_U: every time i boot with software raid, my bios does not detect any bootable thing on my ssds07:11

Danny78I still can't get my 500MHz to boot...  opened it up and switched cables around, checked jumpers.. starts to boot then freezes07:16

gobbeJackOfHearts: well, then https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD07:37
gobbeJackOfHearts: aah, sorry :(07:37
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, hmm I personally would use command line tool `df -h' myself. There is another way to check which directory is using lots of space but I have to warn you that the tool is very hard drive intensive07:37

ledfeatheralso = thx113807:40
gobbeledfeather: just browse it, there should be option for that07:40
somethinginteresgobbe: no adverse affects from removing the items in that folder?07:40
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, there's a tool known as `du -h --max-depth=1 /' which can be used to slowly find the place where lots of data is being used.. you might want to skip certain directories under rootfs like /proc, /dev, /mnt, /media, etc07:40
gobbeledfeather: or atleast i have had such option in every laptio i had in past 13 years07:40
gobbesomethinginteres: that's cache-temp for your package installs and updates07:41
Danny78Has anyone used a touch-pad laptop with Ubuntu?  Did you like having a touch-screen laptop?07:41
MAGIK_NINJAi need help transfering files from ubuntu to windows07:41

gobbeledfeather: depends, ususally pressing esc, delete, f12, f2 or something during bootup07:42
somethinginteresah I see from df -h that the / partition is only 10GB - not sure why my /home is 800GB ^-^07:42
gobbeledfeather: check from your laptops manual07:42
dvanstoneafter an install of 9.10 unable to get or install packages07:42
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, no there isn't, they are just a place to store downloaded debs and usually when installation/upgrade finishes the cache stays there. Deleting them, removing unwanted packages once they were installed and later changing mind will make the package managers download them07:42
Danny78Does anyone know if Ubuntu supports touchscreens?07:42
ledfeatherok. at f2 i know i cant get there. and esc only gets me to a boot selector07:42
gobbesomethinginteres: if you are using lvm you can reduce size of home and move it to /07:42
MAGIK_NINJAi keep getting an error message when i try to access my  hd07:42
dvanstoneDanny78 yes07:42
MAGIK_NINJAwho do i ask for help im very new to linux07:43
Jordan_UDanny78: It does, but like with any type of hardware some devices are better supported than others.07:43
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: OK thanks gobbe: sorry, not sure what lvm is07:43
Jpapertowelswell i finally got fakeraid to work apparently it fails if you already have a partition table on it when you boot the installer, when i dd'd through it and created a new table within the installer it successfully partitioned07:43
Oheligmagik, what does the error say07:43
gobbe!ask | MAGIK_NINJA07:43
ubottuMAGIK_NINJA: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)07:43
MAGIK_NINJAE:/ is not accessible.The volume does not contain a recognized file system. Please make sure that all required file system drivers are loaded and that the volume is not corrupted.07:43
Danny78I take lots of notes, but I'm not sure if I'd like scribbling on a touch pad/screen07:43
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, stuff to do with RAID mainly imo is what lvm is07:43
somethinginteresgobbe: If it is something default then I'd probably be using it. Giving / more space definately seems the best move. I didn't realise the partition was so small07:43
MAGIK_NINJAit has very important files on it07:43
gobbesomethinginteres: what does sudo /sbin/lvdisplay say?07:43
Danny78maybe I can take one for a test spin, lol07:44

Oheligi think is what it means07:44
Jordan_UMAGIK_NINJA: What OS are you using?07:44
somethinginteresgobbe: getting a "not found" on that cmd07:44
MAGIK_NINJAwindows 707:44
MAGIK_NINJAand ubuntu07:44
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: you should ask it from #windows-channel then07:45
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, there's another thing you can do which may not be ideal is to re-tune the size of reserved space if its ext3/4 based. This will give you more space but may cause the fs to be more fragmented or easily fragmented07:45
Jordan_UMAGIK_NINJA: This channel is for Ubuntu support only. Try ##windows for windows support.07:45
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: there's no volumes with letters in ubuntu07:45
MAGIK_NINJAwell the problem is with ubuntu07:45
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: no it's not07:45
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: you are trying to access something from windows07:45
dvanstonecouldnt install xchat or ubuntu-extras there seems to be an issue w/ a microsoft font07:45
MAGIK_NINJAi saved the files to the hd using ubuntu, and now i cant access the drive without formating it in windows yess07:45
bobthemilkmanThat's a problem with windows.07:46
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: that's because windows doesn't support filesystem of ubuntu07:46
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: and it's windows issue then07:46
MAGIK_NINJAso is there a way to put them back using ubuntu?07:46
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: back where?07:46
MAGIK_NINJAi took the files from the hd with windows installed on it and put them on an empty hd, can i transfer files from the drive back to the main hd with windows?07:46
MAGIK_NINJAi did all this in ubuntu07:47
Oheligtry taking them off of the windows drive while on ubuntu07:47
fishsceneMagik: Only if you formatted the drive as ntfs or fat07:47
fadlihi axlin07:47
Jordan_UMAGIK_NINJA: Yes. You can copy files from your Ubuntu partition to your windows partition (While booted into Ubuntu).07:47
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: it is ext4 I believe,  I wouldn't like the extra fragmentation though07:47
XyresicUhm, sorta unrelated, but after destroying grub, I'm trying to get the windows mbr back, but the windows cd gets suck at the loading screen, anyone know why? '-'07:48
MAGIK_NINJAjordan_U i tried that, but in ubuntu i it doesnt show the drive with windows installed on it.07:48
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: you need to mount it to ubuntu07:48
Oheligmagik, you have 2 seperate drives? or 1 drive with 2 partitions07:48
Danny78Linux Live USB creator is so...  groovy07:48
Jordan_UXyresic: I can walk you through installing a windows style mbr from within Ubuntu.07:48
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, *nods* fair enough, I've never tried re-adjusting the size of reserved blocks but then again with ext4 one might be able to defragment it.. unlike ext3 which is what I've got my 1.5TB setup as has no online defragmenter07:49
XyresicThere's also that partiton problem I was hoping the windows live cd might catch though '-'07:49
curiousxHi all MAGIK_NINJA to read or write windows partitions you have to munt it firts07:49
curiousxwhit program called "ntfs-3g" you will be able to do that07:50
Jordan_UXyresic: Can you run "sudo fdisk /dev/sda" and pastebin the output? I seem to remember fdisk fixing this type of problem automatically to a certain extent before.07:50
XyresicI don't think I can pastebin though Jordan_U07:51
curiousxfor example ---> mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/<windows disk>07:51
JackOfHeartsXyresic: try rescuecd live linux distro it got ncie apps to help with partitons07:51
JackOfHearts expecially "testdisk"07:51
curiousxexcuse me for example ---> mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/<windows disk> /mnt07:51
JackOfHearts if testdisk dotn fix it nothing will07:51
Jordan_UXyresic: Why not? (By the way, I agree with JackOfHearts that testdisk will probably be able to fix this).07:52
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: so I just cleared the package cache and that got rid of 700MB of space and saved a document in LibreOffice and suddenly I have "3MB" of space left..  how strange07:52
XyresicNevermind, I made a mistake, I should be able to pastebin07:52
curiousxdid you read me MAGIK_NINJA ?07:52
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, the files aren't actually being deleted, are you deleting them from console or using file manager?07:52
thx1138i dont see an option in my bios for the touchpad... one for usb, sure07:53
MAGIK_NINJAok i have a 500 gb hd with windows 7 installed, and a secondary 150gb hd with nothing on it but my files music, movies, games, etc. i tried to install ubuntu 9.10 from a disk someone burned for me, it was scratched or something because it didnt work right, and then when i tried to load windows i got some kind of problem with GRUB, couldnt fix that withought reinstalling windows 7, so i took all my files from the 500 gb hd with win707:53
JackOfHeartsXyresic:  this diskis on samepc like this one ur on ? if yes just instakll testdisk is in repos07:53
XyresicNo, it's my laptop07:53
thx1138also: every time i restart my computer locks up07:53
MAGIK_NINJAjust barely running it from the disk, so then i reinstalled windows, and now when i try to access that 150 gb hd from windows it gives me the error message i wrote before07:53
MAGIK_NINJAdoes that cover it all?07:53
XyresicI'm running a live USB for the laptop07:54
thx1138im starting to get a little annoyed07:54
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: terminal. Directly after deletion the GUI and terminal report the space being free but yeah..07:54
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: clearly not..07:54
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: you need to boot to ubuntu to be able to copy those files07:54
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: there's no support in windows for ext-filesyste07:54
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, to me it sounds like they are being placed somewhere or there could be another reason that changes aren't being written directly07:55
MAGIK_NINJAgobbe: ok so how do i do that again? i cant find the 500gb hd with windows when im in ubuntu?07:55
MAGIK_NINJAsomething about mounting the drive?07:55
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: yes. you need to mount that drive to ubuntu07:55
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: should I maybe restart my machine?07:55
linuxok   remake you MBR07:55
MAGIK_NINJAgobbe: and how do i do that?07:56
Jordan_UMAGIK_NINJA: You should be able to find it by going to Places > Computer.07:56

MAGIK_NINJAjordan: thats where i looked but only like some sort of partition or backup part of it is there07:56

gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: well, again, you need to boot to ubuntu and mount the disk there, you cannot do anything with it from windows08:01
MAGIK_NINJAnit-wit: i only have wifi so i cant connect to the internet in ubuntu08:01
MAGIK_NINJAgobbe: im sorry if you already told me but i might have missed it, how do i mount the disk?08:01
psycho_oreos!mount| MAGIK_NINJA08:01
ubottuMAGIK_NINJA: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount08:01
XyresicSo uhm... where do you find testdisk?08:01
gobbeMAGIK_NINJA: read the mount-link you just got08:02
MAGIK_NINJAgobbe:ok thanks08:02
JackOfHeartsgeirha: querry08:02
nit-witMAGIK_NINJA, in the admin account open the disk manager and look to see if it shows if it does take a screen shot/snippet and imagebin it.http://imagebin.org/index.php?page=add08:02
somethinginteresJordan_U psycho_oreos: few folder seem to have around 400MB in them e.g. /var/log08:03
somethinginteresJordan_U  psycho_oreos: and /lib/modules seems to have old kernels.. maybe?08:04
MAGIK_NINJAnit-wit: in windows, or ubuntu?08:04
nit-witMAGIK_NINJA, do you actually have a linux install?08:04
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, some of the files in /var/log can be deleted/compressed, just make sure that using the tool `file' to see if they are actually ASCII data08:04
JackOfHeartsMAGIK_NINJA:  or jus type sudo mkdir /media/whatnameuwant  sudo /mount /dev/sd* (name of disk) /media/nameofcatalogu make08:04
MAGIK_NINJAnit-wit i have ubuntu installed on the same drive as windows08:04
MAGIK_NINJAi installed it from in windows08:05
MAGIK_NINJAand when i boot it asks if i want to choose windows or ubuntu08:05
MAGIK_NINJAi have the newer verseion now08:05
nit-witMAGIK_NINJA, well your getting lots of hits here so to speak, so it seems others feel they have the answer08:05
Jpapertowelslol uhh in expert installer i used alt+f4 to read what was going on and now I can't get back to the ui08:05
MAGIK_NINJAwhen i saved the files i had 9.10 running off a disk in the dvd-drive08:05
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, yeah they would go by usually /lib/modules/`uname -r` for currently running kernel, older ones would also mean that older kernels may also be installed.. I would probably retain 2 failbacks apart from the main one08:05
MAGIK_NINJAwow im lost08:06
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: seems to be the current setup I've got .24, .23, and .2208:07
JackOfHeartsMAGIK_NINJA: with what i told u what to do read querry08:07
Jpapertowelsstuck on "Retrieving libpopt0..." what can i do08:07
curiousxMAGIK_NINJA: 9.10 is the version of ubuntu you are using ?08:07
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, seems like each would be taking alot then if you only have 3 kernels08:07
JackOfHeartsis depends on what ddrive u got files u want to mount08:07
MAGIK_NINJAjackofhearts. ok so im reading that link, it says somethign about accessing fiels on the mounted drive, but what i want to do is add files to the mounted drive, is taht possible?08:08
JackOfHeartsits ntfs?08:08
JackOfHearts come on querry /private chat/08:08
MAGIK_NINJAcuriousx- no 9.10 is what i was using when i screwed up windows and had to move my files in the first place, now i have the newest one i downloaded from teh site and installed on my drive next to windows08:08
curiousxmybe you might update to 11.04 or 10.10 and get the wireless card working08:08
maxime_hello i have install lamp server but php5 doesn t work on userdir :-s08:09
ubottuNatty Narwhal is the codename for Ubuntu 11.04, due April 28 2011 - Help and support (only) in #ubuntu+1 - Natty is unstable and is not intended for production systems.08:09
curiousxexcuseme i mean 10.0408:09
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: 409MB total for the 308:09
curiousxan error of tiping xD08:09
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, yeah so divide that 409 by 3 and you get something around 133MB per kernel module.. quite unusual, let me check mine08:10
nit-witMAGIK_NINJA, I can't really tell exactly what your problem is can you explain it succinctly. Are you booting both OS/ Is it you can't access the 150 gig drive?08:11
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: thanks for helping me out. If I'd known / was so small I'd've addressed this earlier08:11
cryptodira64 bit NON-adobe flash player for 10.04 / amd64 .... is there one?08:11
grehahelp please, my ubuntu software center, ubuntu one and banshee just dont start and do nothing08:11
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, mine averages around 90-100MB each (and I have 15 kernel versions including current one) so if you delete one or two you may only free up around a quarter of a CD size or less08:12
somethinginterespsycho_oreos: looks like the solution is going to be to resize "/" but that might not be possible, is that correct?08:13
psycho_oreossomethinginteres, well if you have linux on a single hard disk, you can08:13
gobbesomethinginteres: like i told you earlier, if you are using lvm's it is possible. and i asked you to run one command to see that are you08:13
somethinginteresgobbe: not sure if my msg to you got through earlier, I got a "command not found" on the command you asked me to run08:14
gobbesomethinginteres: ok, so you are not running lvm's then08:14

curiousxadios amigos... thak you for helping ubuntu comunity a hug from Argentina, good bye =)08:31
gobbeaugustl: yes, there's also howto in ubuntu.com for that08:31
theamazingbeatit has 2 lines08:31
gobbeaugustl: arggh..sorry, wrong guy08:31
augustlgobbe: it doesn't become bootable08:31
augustlah ok :)08:31
theamazingbeatone says alien-my user profile08:31

bullgard4How to check on the command line if the X server is running?08:31
lahwranwhat is the name of the default power button that shows up in the upper-right corner? I deleted it from my panel, don't want to reset the panel, and can't find it again08:31
gobbeaugustl: nvm, i need coffee. i tried to write to you ;)08:31
gobbeaugustl: well, just do it without altering the iso, dd if=image.iso of=/dev/diskX bs=1m08:32
augustlthat won't boot will it?08:32
theamazingbeatbut here is the thing at the end of the line of root is the word: Ware-which is the remote username that the drive was located at, so i messed that up pretty bad08:32
gobbeaugustl: why wouldnt it?08:32
Guest61806what r u all talking about08:32
bullgard4lahwran: Indicator Applet Session08:32
gobbeaugustl: did you try to do it the way they say in ubuntu.com?08:33
Jordan_Uaugustl: gobbe: That would not make a bootable disk.08:33
augustlgobbe: isn't CD boot records different from other boot records?08:33
lahwranah just barely found that, bullgard408:33
augustlgobbe: yeah I followed the download page instructions08:33
rwwbullgard4: ps -A, and look for an 'Xorg' process08:33
augustlseems like it assumes I am to boot the usb stick on a mac though08:33
mugshoti just installed meerkat on my old pc, sounds great except the upper and lower panels do not show up!!08:33
Jordan_Uaugustl: gobbe: To be more precise, it would create a disk that was only bootable on EFI (intel mac) systems.08:33
augustlperhaps the usb stick is bootable on a mac, but I want to boot it on a PC08:33
lahwranbullgard4: I'd love it it didn't have the "click for user status" stuff ..08:33
augustlJordan_U: I see, thanks08:33
gobbeaugustl: yes, that's what happens if you do it with the way they have there, if you just push it to usb with dd it should work08:33
Jordan_Uaugustl: You're welcome.08:34
Jpapertowelsi am unable to turn on bootable flag for my /boot partition does that matter or no08:34
ni_theamazingbeat, paste the ls output08:34
lahwranJpapertowels: no08:34
augustlJordan_U: you happen to know how one can make bootable disks or usb sticks from CD images?08:34
lahwranJpapertowels: what does matter is that you install grub properly08:34
theamazingbeati am in the command line via Ctrl+Alt+F108:34
Jpapertowelslahwran: oh i don't see that happening anytime soon08:34
lahwranJpapertowels: ...08:35
augustlindeed, CD booting is different from other forms of booting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bootable_cd08:35

theamazingbeatthat user Ware is a remote user and shouldnt be even on the end of the root line correct?08:36
augustlJordan_U: what tools would you use to do that?08:37
bullgard4rww: Is '~$ ps -A | grep Xorg' appropriate?08:37
augustlbtw, I need a ubuntu server image08:37
tarelerulzI have been using the two program said to turn your usb stick / sd card adapter into a bootble media and both failed08:37
Jordan_Uaugustl: grub-mkrescue (from within Ubuntu, building grub on OSX is very difficult if it's possible at all at the moment).08:37
rwwbullgard4: kinda. Sometimes that'll also return the grep process itself, sometimes it won't. So you'd have to keep that in mind.08:37
augustlwhy aren't normal disk images of ubuntu distributed? ><08:37
Jordan_Uaugustl: The minimal installer can install any flavor of Ubuntu.08:38
rwwbullgard4: (i.e., you'd either get one line with "Xorg" on it, or two lines, one with "Xorg" and one with "grep Xorg")08:38

FreezyFreakybullgard4, ps -ax |grep /usr/bin/X08:39
hellnestFreezyFreaky: hmm08:39
Jordan_Uaugustl: 1: Because it would require a bit more work to make the image bootable when dd'd to a hard drive and 2: Since this is Ubuntu, they'd much rather people used utilities that are harder to shoot yourself in the foot with like unetbootin instead of dd, so there's not much incentive to add this feature. Note that that's all conjecture on my part.08:40
FreezyFreakybullgard4, oops, ps ax |grep /usr/bin/X08:40

Leman_RussAny GUI for this?  I want to be able to delete stuff at the same time08:58

tomdyou can do it in udev too i thik08:58
tomdok, so what do you need?08:58
bolt-workgobbe: it shows used and unused space08:59
bolt-workgobbe: the size of all files on the drive equals used space (roughly)08:59
OrangePeelWhat should I change it too?08:59
gobbebolt-work: yes, but what i understood is that he wanted to find every file and it size08:59
Leman_RussI want something that can look at all the files, then delete the stuff I dont need.  Like some kind of advanced file manager08:59

dcow90I screwed up bad.. I was installing 10.10 earlier and had my partitions all set up for separate /boot /usr /tmp and /[root].  However, I forgot to change the location of the GRUB install to to my linux partition (I did NOT want it installed over my master boot record).  I hit continue before I realized.  So Ubuntu started installing.  Now this would have been fine and worked if I let the install complete.  However, I have had trouble in the p09:01
dcow90ast manually installing grub and getting it to work with rEFIt when using separate partitions for /boot etc..  So, I just waited until the installation finished installing GRUB in the wrong location (sda and not sda4).  I figured I would just restart then, boot to the CD and start over.  That's what I did but on restart I am NOT able to boot into anything.. including the CD.  I am using a MacBook 5.1 so I, obviously, am using EFI the respecti09:01

Us3r_UnfriendlyJordan_U: i've seen it used for recovery with one of it's flags but i don't know if it would recover data from a reinstall09:29
Jordan_UUs3r_Unfriendly: The purpose of ddrescue is to copy bits from a drive despite read errors. What you need is something that will interpret the bits to pull off the old files. They are two different goals and require a different type of utility.09:30

iRabbitraviepic3: I'd say remove the DNS from the card you want on the private network09:34
duron23Us3r_Unfriendly: gnome-panel09:34
rwwUs3r_Unfriendly: "indicator applets" are a gnome-panel thing.09:34
duron23rww: they are available for awn too09:34
rwwhuh. same thing, or different thing with same name?09:34
duron23rww: hmmm09:35
Us3r_Unfriendlyduron23: are you asking if you can move applets around providing more space between them?09:35
duron23Us3r_Unfriendly: now, I can move them09:35
duron23Us3r_Unfriendly: *now = no09:35
duron23Us3r_Unfriendly: I want more space between my indicator applet icons by default09:36
rwwanyway, the the indicator applet stuff for gnome-panel that Canonical coded up isn't user-configurable, as far as I'm aware.09:36
duron23rww: how about notification applet then ?09:37
Us3r_Unfriendlyduron23: right click the applets (and the applets surrounding them) and uncheck "Lock to Panel"...left click and select move and move to where ever you want09:37
rwwduron23: the GNOME one? no idea. I don't think so, but I switched to KDE a while back, so I can't check.09:38
Us3r_Unfriendlyduron23: are you talking about "notify-osd"?  The black window that pops up when you get a message from empathy or a new song starts playing on rhythmbox?09:39
duron23actually I am theming gnome-panel, everything look fine with current setup, alignment goes wrong when some other icons come there, like activating bluetooth device09:39
Us3r_Unfriendlyduron23: also when right clicking the applet sometime you have to click a little bit to the left of it where it begins.  exp...if I want to move my network icon if I right click it I get the networking options ...not the option to move it09:41

tehbautit's odd because it's been booting just fine until now10:35
rwwZol: If you want to make a link and have it survive renaming, you need to use a hardlink, yes.10:35

tnmanybody knows how do i install make command?10:36

duron23tnm: sudo apt-get install make10:37
ZolSo I thought that if I make a hard link, that never moves, to a file that might move - I could create a symbolic link to that file and then move the original file to anywhere on that file system to maintain the link. That would work, right?10:37
Zolsymlink to the hard link.10:37
Jordan_UZol: Yes, that should work.10:38
ZolCool. :) Will test it. Thanks!10:38
AnchorGuest92764: Back. Alright did you type "lspci -n | grep 14e4" in CLI just as I have it here (minus the quotations)?10:38
will___tehbaut: so it's either an incompatibility with your hardware and ubuntu (in which case you need to fiddle with different boot options) or the CD is just bad, which will require either reburning one on a slower speed setting, or using better CDs... etc.10:38
tristan3199us1stupid yet simple question. anyone know where evolution stores its inbox, ect????  i want to uninstall it and use thunderbird-Shredder because evolution never could send any email, only receive, via hotmail...10:39

gavin__Update for people that helped yesterday with regards to webcam on a 10.10 server with only CLI. I got it working thanks. Problem is that the program "motion" only serves locally and you have to specify allowimng remote connections.10:40

will___tehbaut: you could try using the CD in a different computer or a different CD in the same computer10:40
will___tehbaut: that'll help you diagnose the problem10:40
Jordan_UZol: Note that unlike symlinks, with hard links there is no "original" file. Either link to the file is the same, and the file on disk won't be deleted untill all hard links to it are unlinked (with rm).10:40
tehbautheh, now the trial is working... man, this makes no sense :P10:41

rumpe1Zol, hardlinks doesnt duplicate data.... your create references to the same file in your filesystem. When each reference is deleted, the file is deleted.10:44
Jordan_UZol: Every file path is a hard link to a file. When you use ln (without -s for symlink) you are creating a second hard link to the same file.10:44

ubottuA large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out?12:16
MagoMarkoshow much do i need i have 40 Gb open for ubuntu12:16
Srirammrdirtft: What email client do you use?12:17
duron23MagoMarkos: is it un partitioned space ?12:17

MagoMarkosdo i need to unpartition it?12:17
malopei use 30GB for my / and a huge /home partition12:17
MagoMarkoshow is it supposed to be?12:17
malope30GB of apps is a lot12:17
MagoMarkosand how can i set it up correctly on the advanced partitioning tool if i need to12:17
arvutsacarlson: alright. ill try the mnt dir then. last time i fixed grub i did it by mounting via the places menu12:17
duron23MagoMarkos: I guess you need unpartitioned free space12:17
tehbauthow do I install hfsprogs? it's not showing up in Synaptic Package Manager?12:18

arvutsacarlson: shouldnt make a difference tho aslong as i tell grub-install that /media/sdb5 is root dir12:18
sacarlsonarvut: ya I wouldn't think so but the umask may be different12:19

ne2kI have a strange problem with serial ports. I installed a OX16PCI954 quad 16950 UART PCI card (PCI 1415:9501) which was working fine for a while. After installing some updates and restarting, ttyS1, 2 and 3 still work, but 0 doesn't. it says "cannot open /dev/ttyS0: No such device". each time I try to access it, the kernel logs "ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!" in dmesg. any ideas of how to fix this? kernel is 2.6.35-24-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP on x86_6412:20
mrdirtftSriram, Adding the evolution ppa to the software resources and updating apt-get solve the problem but how?12:20
sacarlsonarvut: if this is how you did it before best to try it a bit different12:20
sacarlsonarvut: you can see the umask is  with sudo mount ,  the stuf you see in (....) is part of the umask I guess12:22

Soyo!ask | ngl12:24
ubottungl: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)12:24
bullgard4ngl: Please put in this channel a specific question.12:24
sacarlsonne2k: unless your new kernel has drivers of features you now need I would return the default grub to boot the old kernel12:24
nglSo i have now dualboot with win.... i have installed Ubuntu trough windows.. and i have allow only 10gb "system space" what sould i do in need more now... but i cant uninstall windows...12:25
bastidrazorbullgard4: isn't that just a color in the panel if using system theme?12:25
ne2ksacarlson: well, yes, I'll do that, if nothing else to prove that it's the kernel change that's caused the problem12:25
Srirammrdirtft: no clue, on how to fix yet, Maybe re-installing the messaging indicator will do the trick12:25
bazhangngl expanding a wubi install?12:26
sacarlsonne2k: well that would add evidence that is is the kernel causing it if you try boot the old and it works again,  newer is not always better.12:26
arvutsacarlson: alright, so its (rw).. as in permissions?12:26
nglbazhang, yes12:26
bullgard4bastidrazor: I do not understand your question well. I am asking for a pathname and you are suggesting a color. How can a pathname be a color?12:27
sacarlsonarvut: try it reboot if it fails try again with the other mount point12:27
Sriramngl: Use the ubuntu install cd/ gparted live cd to increase partition size12:27
bazhanghttp://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=545519 ngl12:28
bastidrazorbullgard4: when selecting the system them i thought it used a solid color for the background.12:28
arvutsacarlson: tried mounting sdb2, it appearently does not exist according to mount. while fdisk says it does12:28
nglok, thanks for your time.. :)12:28
Sriramngl: Oh , sorry, wubi, ok12:28
bastidrazorbullgard4: but i see your question.. where that is located.12:28
bazhangngl, there is a tool on that link I sent you to do it12:29
rumpe1arvut, pastebin fdisk and output of mount-command12:29
sacarlsonarvut: maybe that's the problem,  maybe sdb2 has /boot in it but is corupt and needs fsck to get it to be mountable12:29
bullgard4bastidrazor: No, my computer displays a predominantly violet background with some stars on it.12:29
nglbazhang, ok thanks i will try it ;)12:29

duron23Bipul`: I guess not12:31
sacarlsonarvut: my root partition umask looks like /dev/sdb1 on / type ext3 (rw,errors=remount-ro)12:31
Gabiduron23 what the command ?12:31
arvutsacarlson: not sure what to expect in /boot tbh. and no, no other partition is mounted to /boot12:31

bonjoyeephox_: see http://www.java.com/12:32
sacarlsonarvut: well I would expect it not to be empty that's for sure12:32
SriramWierdAAR, Have you checked the connection between printer to PC?12:32
sacarlsonarvut: if they mount to it at boot time then it will be empty,  if there is no boot partition it will have the kernel linux and grub files12:33
nunyais there some way to not see the bootloading when i start my computer?12:33
WierdAARSriram, And what would be the best way to do that? Other than physically checking the cables ?12:33

SriramWierdAAR, See http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/models/officejet/officejet_g55.html might help you12:34
ne2kI've rebooted with the old kernel 2.6.35-23-generic #41-Ubuntu and the problem has gone away. Therefore I know the problem is with the new kernel (2.6.35-24-generic #42-Ubuntu). I would like to report this as a bug, but I'm not sure what information would best help the developers to solve the problem. what should I post?12:34
WierdAARSriram, "HPLIP Website is currently under maintenance. We will be back shortly." Should I just download and install ?12:35
SriramWierdAAR, Sorry http://sourceforge.net/projects/hplip/files/hplip/12:36

TimothyAsam-_-: i assume you only need the cpu info, I don't know where to get the rest easily12:43
sacarlsonne2k: people tend not to provide the needed info or are too lazy,  whereas computers do it all for you12:43
sam-_-TimothyA, yes12:43
MagoMarkosshould i enable a swap portion?12:43
phox_sriram: and where do i find this top output?12:43

phox_sriram: i have tried like three times just to paste this, basiclyy had to force quit as many times. give me a minute12:45
TimothyAsam-_-: I still have plenty of memory left over12:45
WierdAARSriram, Ok. I don't know if you can help me with this. The install needs the gcc (C compiler), but even after I install it it says. "http://paste.ubuntu.com/551049/" Any idea what the problem could be ?12:46
ne2kbullgard4: no, it does work. I was talking about just going to a website and filing a bug, which seems rather more sensible to me. I guess it stops people putting in crap, as others have suggested12:46
sam-_-TimothyA, hugh interesting. don't know what the cause is.12:46
SriramWierdAAR, Give me a sec12:46
TimothyAsam-_-: I'm not the only one12:46
TimothyAI've replicated this issue on both dedicated servers and VPS's12:47

SriramWierdAAR: Can you paste the readme file?12:48
TimothyAsam-_-: yep12:48
MagoMarkosand now i wait for it to finish copying the files12:48
bullgard4ne2k: I disagree. '~$ ubuntu-bug <package>' is a convenient way to report errors and classify them at the same time.12:48

Sleeping_Foxirc does any1 knows of a mp3 player that can synch with ubuntu without rockbox ?12:50

WierdAARSriram, I ran it the first time, and it gave the same error but with "8 dependencies required" and after apt-get install gcc there are only 7 dependecies even though it claims to be missing the same thing12:50
phox_sriram: Right? Yet firefox keeps not responding and stuff. Yeah i thought so too at first, but no no. Just random "not repsponding" and stuff12:50
