X14U2NVXedbian: the broadband B431200:00
edbianX14U2NVX: beautiful00:00
thieven`dffd, if you boot a live cd or usb key, then you can get at your files and move them to a external hard drive or something. then you can wipe that computer and reinstall ubuntu.00:00
edbianX14U2NVX: Is the machine connected to the internet right now?00:00
big_tthieven`: trying to add freebsd to grub menu.lst , and its located on second drive sdb00:01
X14U2NVXedbian: I am using that machine atm... Using ethernet to get connection00:01
edbianX14U2NVX: please pastebin the output of dmesg00:01
edbianX14U2NVX: excellent.  i feel very confident about this right now00:01
n-iCehow do I join to the kernel folder?00:01
thieven`big_t, you will need to see if (where the bsd is) called sdb1 or sdb2.... and tell grub where on sdb to look.00:01
MJBrunei want to check my system if it has this http://it.slashdot.org/it/08/02/10/2011257.shtml exploit, anyone have a copy of this?00:02
big_tthieven`: sdb100:02
mattgyverEtherealWinterWi, run gconf-editor and take a look at /apps/nautilus/preferences/confirm_trash and see if it is checked00:02
dffdwont let me make a copy of /etc/00:02
thieven`dffd why would you want to copy that folder?00:02
dffdMost settings are in your home folder (in hidden folders) and system wide configuration files are in /etc/ (you'll only need to backup files from /etc/ which you edited yourself). If you backup these you should be able to reset most of you're current settings in your new install.00:03
terronHow do I delete a network interface?00:03
edbianX14U2NVX: mm, the card seems to be working but is not able to associated with the wireless router00:03
dffdthis is really stupid. how can an entire install be screwed up from me installing 2 or 3 packages. i want my desktop back00:03
thieven`mattgyver, "as long as it's a Linux kernel version 2.6.17 to"      in a terminal type uname -r    this will tell you what kernel you have.00:03
EtherealWinterWiIt is, that option is to only warn when deleting files from the trash00:04
edbianX14U2NVX: Can you tell me what lsmod | grep b43 says?00:04
X14U2NVXedbian: It does this for all routers00:04
sam-_-dffd, and we may help if you tell us specifics about the problem00:04
thieven`dffd, i agree mate. it is odd.00:04
sam-_-dffd, i doubt it's because of the installed packaged00:04
sam-_-dffd, i doubt it's because of the installed packages00:04
mattgyverEtherealWinterWi, oh sorry I thought that was what you needed00:04
dffdso the command sudo apt-get install totem-xine libxine1-ffmpeg libdvdread4 <--- screwed up my desktop. any help appreciated00:04
n-iCehow do I join to the kernel folder?00:04
sam-_-dffd, so you are dropped to console on boot now?00:05
dffdboots with no splash screen. asks for login and password which i give it. i just want my desktop back00:05
X14U2NVXedbian: it has been added to the pastebin00:05
Thunderirchey does anyone know why ubuntu server is using my routers ip00:05
sam-_-dffd, ask for password where? on a tty?00:05
MJBruneanyone have an example copy of the 2.6.17 exploit?00:05
edbianX14U2NVX: It made a new pastebin.  Please give me the new link00:05
dffdyes tty00:05
EtherealWinterWii mean a warning before sending a file to the trash bin as it is so easy to accidently push the delete button and not realise you've sent a file or folder there00:06
sam-_-then try: sudo restart gdm00:06
sam-_-dffd, then try: sudo restart gdm00:06

philsfdw-, system monitor must be using the "show my processes" option, choose "show all processes" from the menu00:09
dw-philsf: top showed the prob... guess it was hidden in System Monitor00:09
dffdis it possible a bad apt-get sources list couldve been responsible for the mess up to start with00:10
sam-_-dffd, oh then upgrade because 7.10 isn't supported anymore00:10

X14U2NVXminimec: I have never been able to connect, and the encryption key has not changed00:14
edbianX14U2NVX: The card and the driver are working.  Now we have to figure out why you cannot connect to an Access Point00:14

fluvvellethernet:300 is not huge, ooffice.org has near on the highest level of compatibility with ms office00:17
minimecX14U2NVX: When using WEP HEX, you might have to use a Hex Converter and enter the passphrase in HEX... http://www.swingnote.com/tools/texttohex.php00:17
castlealexdw- : yes maybe it is a gzip00:17
edbianX14U2NVX: It should work. Try to connect and watch dmesg again00:17

skilzUBUNTU IS FAIL00:36
sam-_-NUBUNTU, sudo apt-get install file-roller00:37
amlodipineedbian - well i'd like to know why and what might be causing it -00:37
kwtmHi. Am connected via an old Live CD. I want to run GParted and make sure it and all its depencies are up to date, but not update any other packages (since it's just a LiveCD). How do I do this?00:37
skilzEPIC FAIL00:37
hi5for 10.10 skilz?00:37
NUBUNTUthanks boss00:37
sam-_-skilz, like what?00:37
dffdim just making sure he gave me a correct command. i can not see my files at all now is that normal00:37
skilzheaps of things00:37
sam-_-skilz, like?00:37
skilzright now its usplash00:37
sam-_-skilz, why would you want it?00:37
edbianamlodipine: Try to figure out what command will launch it from the terminal.  Launch it from the terminal, look for errors00:37
dffdi typed sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media and now i get "disk" could not be found00:38
skilzthen after something installs or fails I get that stupid error Items cannot be installed or removed untill the package catalog is repaired. Do you wantr to repair it now? I click repair and guess what? FAIL it keeps popping up....00:38
kwtmdffd: Did you literally say "sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media"?00:38
kwtmdffd: That replaces the entire "media" directory with what's on /dev/sda6.  But there are usually other directories under /media as well.00:39
dffdyes so does that mean all the files are not in a /media folder somewhere00:39
skilzI have to keep pressing cancel00:39
kwtmdffd: You may have meant "sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media/sda6"00:39
hi5skilz: i answered you in private00:39
thieven`dffd, kwtm it's best to make anew dir in that /media folder.00:39
thieven`dffd sudo mkdir /media/something    then do as kwtm said. (this helps avoid confusion)00:39
kwtmdffd: So if you had another disk like an external drive hooked up that showed up under /media/disk, now "/media/disk" is gone.00:39
thieven`then to edit what kwtm said, do sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media/something00:40
wassersam-_-, I solved my problem from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=734023 (just for you to get closure) purge bash_completion, reinstall, add code to .bashrc00:40
mermahi im having problems reverting to single screen on my gnome box. In the nvidia X server settings I can't change the Separate X Screen to disabled or twinview since those checkboxes are disabled. Any idea :/00:40
dffdwill it return after a reboot though00:40
amlodipineedbian - i don't know what to type or even what to look for / i just found only one thread on the ubuntu forum by chance and it didn't have a solution. http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1026028 > but in that care some about screen showed up . mine doesn't show up at all ( i can however view the "about gnome" info box and system > admin > system monitor info) but there has to be a reason for that "about ubuntu" 00:40
hi5can someone tell me what is the main characteristic of lubuntu - opposed to standard one00:40
kwtmdffd: Yes, do as thieven` said first: "sudo mkdir /media/sda6" and then "sudo mount /dev/sda6 /media/sda6".  But before that, this time, first "sudo umount /dev/sda6" so it's unmounted.  (Note the command is umount, NOT unmound)00:40
kwtmdffd: Oops, I mean not unmount or unmound, but umount.00:41
sam-_-wasser, never considered that because you said it worked on a tty00:41
ScuniziAAarrrgggg... Why does OOo take so long to respond to "Save As" directory choices?  Any solution?00:41
dffdi cant find this media folder at all00:41
minimecskilz: open a console type sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get -f install00:41
wassersam-_-, because it works, maybe the lines in bashrc changed something?00:41
kwtmthieven`: Hey, you look like you know something ... how can I upgrade a given package and its dependencies, but not any other packages? Will just "sudo apt-get install PackageName" do it?00:41
thieven`Scunizi, i think it first tries to go to the last place you saved soemthing. (or where that file was opened from.) maybe that place it is going is a network share or soemthing?00:42
dw-Scunizi: because you have a folder with 2000 subfolders? :)00:42
amlodipinei've been googling for a bit on "about ubuntu" not displaying or missing but nothing relevant is coming... hence why i came here to ask some of y'all.00:42
NUBUNTUu there00:42
NUBUNTUsam -_-00:42
LA9KSATried to install Ubuntu on macbook... Found out I DL'd 10.04, not 1010 after formatting the right disk (fairly sure it was the right) and went for a reboot to get back on OS X and DL and burn the right image... When it was about to shut down, it said to take out the disk and press enter... I did; and now the whole puter has frozen up! Can't even use the i/o to kill it.. What do?00:42
sam-_-hi5, opposed to normal ubuntu?00:42
Scunizidw-: nope..00:42
dffdah, thank you00:42
sam-_-NUBUNTU, y00:42
Scunizithieven`: it was opened on a share but I wanted to switch to a local directory00:42
minimecskilz: if apt-get -f install is not working, try apt-get -f remove00:42
NUBUNTUsam-_-, sorry that im an idiot but under which folder is file-roller00:43
sam-_-NUBUNTU, so you installed it?00:43
DaGeek247-PDAkwtm: sudo apt-get update packag-name should do it.00:43
kwtmDaGeek247-PDA: Thanks. Will try.00:43
sam-_-NUBUNTU, you can start it with the command file-roller00:44
thieven`kwtm i'm not as smart as i appear. hah.     apt-get install package-name : install is followed by one or more packages desired for installation. If package is already installed it will try to update to latest version.00:44
=== bruno is now known as Guest75800
sam-_-NUBUNTU, should be your default application for compressed files00:44
thieven`Scunizi, if you wait till it loads that share, then you can change directories and install it where ever you want right?   make srue it can see that share.  use nautilus to make sure you are connected to it, and then see if ooo hehaves.00:44
kwtmLA9KSA: You may have corrupted the boot-loading mechanism. If you were installing (whether 10.04 or whatever), part of the installation will load a bootloader, GRUB, so you can dual-boot. At the end of that, you're supposed to remove the CD so the computer will boot from hard disk (not CD) and start the bootloader.00:45
kwtmLA9KSA: If installation was not properly done, then the GRUB (bootloader) may not have been installed, so rebooting resulted in an error.00:45
X14U2NVXedbian: Are you there?00:46
kwtmLA9KSA: I think the easiest way is to go ahead and install *some* Ubuntu --hopefully 10.10, but if all you have on CD is 10.04, then install that --let the process complete, and it will install GRUB.  Then you can reboot computer and have it let you choose MacOS or MacBuntu.00:46
Scunizithieven`: It's a small spreadsheet I opened off a share directly from my NAS.  Then "Save As" (took forever).. click /home folder (wait forever)... click directory choice (wiat forever) etc ..00:46
sam-_-X14U2NVX, i think he went to sleep00:46
X14U2NVXyeah he's not on the list anymore, I should have just checked that00:47
kwtmLA9KSA: As a consolation, after you have installed 10.04 (if you can't burn the 10.10 CD with another computer), you should be able to upgrade it to 10.10 without needing a CD installation.00:47
thieven`Scunizi, that is odd. i know what you mean. after you click on your home folder, things should be snappy again as it is not trying to see the NAS at that point.00:47
kwtmLA9KSA: Not sure if that helps.  Does anyone disagree or have a better solution?00:47
X14U2NVXsam-_-: i found the solution but I'm a newb at ubuntu and terminal, can you explain to me how to perform this step?00:47
thieven`kwtm was that a good answer?  i pretend to be smart sometimes. :)00:47
Scunizithieven`: yea.. one of the several niggley quirks I have with OOo00:47
skilzminimec, http://pastebin.com/bZ5z4WRf00:47
LA9KSAkwtm: I noticed I burnt the wrong release before installing so I was going back into OS X (without installing, just formatting to EXT4) when the error occured... Formation was done by deleting the BOOTCAMP-partition and making a new one from the unlocated space00:48
sam-_-X14U2NVX, which step?00:48
kwtmthieven`: That was a good answer, yes. DaGeek gave another answer which seemed useful but was unfortunately wrong. :P  Oh, well.00:48

sam-_-X14U2NVX, it's correct for your device as well. the driver is just called b43 it can access all b43xx devices00:50
kwtmLA9KSA: I'm not familiar with MacBook so you may need to explain. You said you realized the error "before installing", but you HAD already made changes to your hard disk, right?  You said that you deleted the "bootcamp partition". What did this partition do before?  It sounds like it was a boot loader (did it come with the Mac?) and was not something you should have deleted.00:50
LA9KSAubutom: As I stated in my first line, can't use i/o button to kill it00:50

ubottunazgul, please see my private message01:31
kwtmgaurang: Yes, but it may take a long time.  Step 1: back up EVERYTHING in case your hard drive gets hosed.  Step 2: boot from LiveCD (you know how to download and burn?)  Step 3: connect to Internet and "install" the package "gparted" into your liveCD session (does NOT mean "install" your liveCD ubuntu onto hard disk --different meaning of the word "install")01:31
kwtmgaurang: Then run gparted. You need to do this from LiveCD because you cannot use the hard disk you are repartitioning, while you are repartitioning it, so you can't boot your computer as normal.01:31

kwtmgaurang: Hey, I thought of a slightly different plan that might work better.01:34
gaurangnice !! tell me01:34
kwtmgaurang: In Linux, it is possible to use more than one swap partition.01:34
bepraaaYou can even have them on different disks.01:34
kwtmgaurang: So, instead of moving around a whole bunch of partitions making them bigger or smaller, just find a big partition that has, say, 6 Gigs of unused space at the end (hopefully you have some 60Gig partition or something), and shrink that partition by 6 Gigs.01:35
kwtmgaurang: So now you have a gap that's 6 Gigs in size, and we don't care where exactly in the hard drive it is.  (With other sorts of partitions we might care.)  And then create another Linux swap partition.01:36
j9lbexcuse me, I'm trying to enable SHMconfig, but I can't figure out how; I found the instructions for editing xorg.conf, but the docs claim this is outdated; do you know where I can find current instructions?01:36
Haunt_Housecan I show my bookmarks in Nautilus other than the menu?01:36
mimorStill no driver for the Ati Radeon HD 68xx series :'(01:37
kwtmgaurang: If I recall, Linux automatically detects any swap partitions and will use them.  You will still need to use backup the hard drive and use gparted, but it will be much faster and much less risk of corrupting your hard drive.01:37
kwtmgaurang: I imagine it might take 15 minutes (for gparted) instead of 2 hours, say.01:37
bastidrazorkwtm: no, it would have to be added in /etc/fstab01:37
kwtmgaurang: Btw, just in case I wasn't clear: back up EVERYTHING on the hard drive, including Windows partitions that you may think are unaffected, just in case gparted screws up the entire hard drive.  Backing up is the most time-consuming part of using gparted (though you should have been doing it already anyway).01:38
kwtmbastidrazor: I stand corrected, gaurang.  But editing the /etc/fstab file to tell Linux you have a new swap partition is relatively easy.01:38
gaurangkwtm, right01:39
kwtmgaurang: Oh, shoot, just thought of something ... bastidrazor, will the creation of a new swap partition change the numbering of the partitions and screw up booting up and all that?  (Eg. /dev/sda6 is now /dev/sda7 or something...)01:39

* Haunt_House just discovered dolphin...how come it's for kde and works under ubuntu? Am I to expect troubles?01:44
kwtmbastidrazor, gaurang: I am not sure how Windows identifies drives --I don't want Drive C: to suddenly become Drive D:, so just to be safe I think the best thing overall is actually to increase the size of the swap partition (not create a new one) using gparted.  Or PartitionMagic / PartitionExpert, if you bought that.01:44
=== ryan_ is now known as smep
kwtmgaurang: Why 20 hours?  Do you mean you will need to keep changing pendrives because each one is so small, or the drive itself is just slow?  Tell me a bit about your hard drive.  How big is it, how big are the partitions?  Is it 500G?01:45
LxndrI am attempting to RDP from my home computer (ubuntu 10.10) to my work computer (windows xp).

However, I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to make this happen in ubuntu. Could anyone, with enough patience, walk me through the steps? (Throwing pr01:45

kwtmgaurang: I experimented once with many different distros, but I had a spare computer to work on.  My recommendation: don't tinker with your main computer you use for everyday living. Get some cheap desktop that someone else is throwing away and tinker with that. I am *very* conservative with my laptop (I have only installed LTS editions of Ubuntu on here).01:46
bholzHaving issues replacing 9.10 w/ 10.10, help?01:47
Haunt_HouseJordan_U, cool01:47
KM0201bholz: are you trying to upgrade 9.10 to 10.10, skipping 10.04?01:47
kwtmHaunt_House: KDE applications need the KDE libraries installed, but these are part of Ubuntu, so when you installed Dolphin, it installed the necessary KDE libraries so it should work fine.01:47
olskolircwow bholz why would you want to leave karmic01:47
bholzKM0201, yes01:48
olskolircback up your repository bholz (cough)01:48

Haunt_Housekwtm, good to know, thank you01:48

gaurangkwtm, i have 160 gigs of HD having Vista installed , C / D drives , ubuntu installed as Wubi , I am tired of Windows , my PC has 2 TB HD and i guess first of all i need to create a image of Currently used Ubuntu and cut copy files from Vista , tell me whats the best way to do that ?01:48
Lxndrkwtm: Thank you very much!01:48
kwtmLxndr: What program did you plan to use on the Ubuntu client?  And which program names have been thrown at you so far? :)01:48
olskolircmake sure you back it up first bholz and your X1101:48
bholzKM0201, I want to wipe my 9.10 out completely, bad kernel just set it asside and never used it. i was going to start fresh with 10.1001:49
KM0201bholz: ok, have you download and burned 10.10?01:49
Lxndrkwtm: People have mentioned rdesktop to me, as well as 'vinagre' (which apparently is also called 'Remote Desktop Viewer').01:49
nazgulOK so I've reread and gone over all the docs I can find on troubleshooting my Broadcom Wireless device, but everything is dealing with getting the correct drivers and firmware installed, which I have, but I still can't see any networks01:49
olskolircI wish ubuntu would make a rescue cd where all you have to do is click replace grub option after you dual with windows like rpm distros do01:49
bholzKM0201: yes01:49
kwtm Lxndr: aaargh! Sorry, I take that back --I am running on a LiveCD session and don't have my normal computer set up with which I am familiar, so I can't look things up. Let me finish with gaurang and I'll see if I have spare tidbits of knowledge for you, but realistically I probably won't be much help.  Keep asking every 5-10 minutes --someone else might know.01:50
KM0201bholz: so whats the issue?01:50
bholzKM0201: its in the drive, but it wont boot upon start up. done all i can with bios, however grub isnt listening01:50
renatovCould someone please help me with a D-bus issue? Variable "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is not set, so I can't use commands like "banshee --stop".01:50
Lxndrkwtm: I appreciate it! I'll try asking in a while (I've learned not to ask things too frequently, I've gotten yelled at after doing 10 minute pauses)01:50
KM0201bholz: have you already installed 10.10, and now you're having a problem, or you can't get the cd to boot?01:50
bholzKM0201: cant get CD to boot01:50
kwtmLxndr: Just my own $0.02: I use Kubuntu (KDE) and it comes with krdc built-in.  It seems to be able to accept a few protocols, and seems user-friendly enough, but I have only used it with VNC, not RDP.  Might want to try?  May have to install KDE, though.01:51
KM0201bholz: are you sure you burned it proper, cd drive working properly, etc?01:51
bholzKM0201: yes, plugging it into another CD starts the wizard just fine, even ubuntu reads system files - however no wizard start up.01:51
bholzKM0201: yes, plugging it into another PC****01:52
kwtmgaurang: Okay, what I recommend is: get an external drive (you'll want one, anyway).  You can choose to buy an external, or buy an internal (these are cheaper) and then also separately buy a metal case that turns it into external. This way you can use it as an internal, too, if you like.01:52
KM0201bholz: so you're trying to boot an external cdrom01:52
bholzKM0201: Apologies - define...01:52
renatovCould someone please help me wCould someone please help me with a D-bus issue? Variable "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is not set, so I can't use commands like "banshee --stop".ith a D-bus issue? Variable "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is not set, so I can't use commands like "banshee --stop".01:52
KM0201external... USB01:52
bholzKM0201: Figured - no, on-board CDrom01:53
kwtmgaurang: Depending on your budget, you can choose different size drives.  Last year I bought a 1500 G drive (1.5TB) for US$120, so it should be easy to get a cheap 160GB drive that can hold everything.01:53
renatovCould someone please help me with a D-bus issue? Variable "$DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is not set, so I can't use commands like "banshee --stop".01:53
kwtmrenatov: I can help you.  Will finish my msg to gaurang then help you.01:53
kwtmrenatov: Okay, you are starting to repeat yourself --that's 3 times in 1 minute.  Stop being so annoying or I won't help.  Geez...01:53
KM0201bholz: so what happens when you try to boot the cd, it just acts like the cd isn't there, or what?01:53
markturnipWhat's the best way of running a scp in the background.01:54
nazgulI picked up a pair of 500GB drives for $25 bucks each, they were sitting on a clearance shelf next to a 512MB Creative Zen mp3 player for $60...I think I got the better deal, lol01:54
gaurangkwtm, sure i will get one , i had one but they are too fragile01:55
bholzKM0201: Good question, yes and no. It reads that their is a CD, but bios (or maybe because of grub) is passing up the boot process and pushing me straight into ubuntu. however when i see that there is a disk in drive on the ubuntu desktop, upon clicking it, i get nothing. just the dir files which take me no where01:55
kwtmgaurang: Suggestion #2: then go copy all the files onto external drive using your normal Windows and Linux copy commands; I say stay away from fancy Norton Copy-All-Your-Files-To-Some-Other-Drive programs that need you to run the same program just to restore files.01:55
KM0201bholz: it sounds like your CD drive s not first in yoru boot sequence in your BIOS01:56
kwtmgaurang: Then once everything is backed up (will take about 2-5 hours, not including buying the drive) go for the GParted thing.01:56
kwtmrenatov: Okay, DBUS session --it says DBUS session bus address not set, right?01:56
bholzKM0201: it is.01:56
bholzi even temp boot it01:56
kwtmrenatov: Darn, hang on, I'm not running on my normal hard drive so I have to go somewhere else to look up the info -- hang on...01:57
bholzKM0201: still no bueno, i just want to wipe it clean and start over w/ this 10.1001:57
bholzhowever i might need to go winxp then back across01:57
KM0201bholz: i dunno.. you have a mysterious pc, it is skipping a perfectly bootable CD, when the CD drive is first in boot sequence, don't take it to a computer repairman, take it to a priest01:57
bholzKM0201: LOL will do. I know its my kernel01:57
KM0201bholz: no its not... the cd loads before the kernel, if your BIOS is set up properly, because it loads even before the hard drive(where the kernel is)01:58
resnoif a one cron isnt firing, a help finding why not? i dont see any cron logs in /var/logs01:58
markturnipWhat's the best way of running a scp in the background?01:58
kwtmrenatov: Okay, I will tell you how to get the DBUS session address, and then show you a script I use to make it automated so you can run banshee or whatever.01:59
bholzKM0201: I thought of that but it seems.. man I dont know lol im brain fried on this. thank you for all your help, im going to buy a new hard drive :P01:59
nazgulcould still use some guidance with this issue I'm having with my wireless, either the answer I need isn't in the docs, or I'm not perceptive enough to recognize it...01:59
KM0201bholz: what is a new hard drive going to do?... your system can't boot the CD Rom...01:59
kwtmrenatov: Basically, the session address is an environment variable.  Are you familiar with command-line Linux?  (Ie. do you use Terminal/Console?)01:59
KM0201bholz: if you're gonna buy something new, buy a new cd drive.01:59
bholzit works though, it reads the disk02:00
kwtmrenatov: Oh, I see you do, because you mentioned "banshee --stop" which you can't do from a GUI. Okay, great.02:00
* KM0201 needs a drink02:00

gaurangkwtm, yeah !! sure i will do that today itself :)02:00
Sina3i just got ubuntu02:00

Sina3i used wubi to install it to my external HDD02:00
Sina3but i cant access the movies i have on my external hdd from ubuntu02:00
gaurangkwtm,  how we run programs directly in RAM ?02:00
bholzKM0201: Not the bios - would you know of a cmd that says "hey, boot the disk in the drive please"02:01
Sina3i can only see them on windows02:01
KM0201bholz: i dunno... what i want to know, is how on earth do you think the hard drive is the reason the cd won't boot, when according to your BIOS, it should be checking the CD, before the hard drive even loads02:01
FaustusI'm just looking through theMacTel doc and am left wonder why only the root partition can be ext4. Can someone explain this to me?02:01
renatovkwtm:  sorry, I was afk, but now I'm back =D02:01
kwtmrenatov: the DBUS session address is set by your GUI, so if you have booted up Ubuntu (say) and open Gnome-terminal (I use Konsole in KDE, but it's the same), then you will be able to get the DBUS session address.02:01
KM0201bholz: some computers, have a option.. it's usually on the boot screen, like "Press xx to select boot device"... do you see a message like that?02:01
mermahi im having problems reverting to single screen on my gnome box. In the nvidia X server settings I can't change the Separate X Screen to disabled or twinview since those checkboxes are disabled. Any idea :/02:01
KM0201if so, press the designated key, and try to choose th cd02:01
renatovkwtm:  I use fluxbox02:02
bholzKM0201: Yes "temp boot device" like a one time deal, as i said i already gave that a shot02:02
renatovkwtm:  the terminal warning is this:02:02
kwtmgaurang: Yes, when you boot LiveCD, it turns part of your RAM into a RAMdisk so the computer thinks it has a hard disk.  It then "installs" itself into the RAM disk.  So you can run programs as if you're running on a slower computer with less RAM and a small hard drive (which is really part of the RAM)02:02
kwtmrenatov: fluxbox is fine.  This is the command I use:02:02
renatovkwtm:  [Warn  00:02:55.601] DBus support could not be started. Disabling for this session.02:02
kwtmexport MYDBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=`set | grep -E DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS | sed -r -e 's/^[^=]*=//'`02:03
kwtmrenatov: ^^02:03
skutr3hey how do i get into the firefox plugins directory from the terminal?02:03
gaurangkwtm,oh ! so , is there any command or so for running specific program on RAM02:03
kwtmrenatov: If I understand you, the error is because the environment variable DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS is missing or wrong.  This happens for me because I use "screen" on the command line.  Do you?02:04
skutr3can anyone tell me how to get into the firefox plugins directory from the terminal02:04
renatovwhat does this mean? "screen on the command line"02:04
renatovkwtm:  what does this mean? "screen on the command line"02:04
kwtmgaurang: I don't know that you can say "Hey, run this program on RAM", but when you boot from LiveCD, the entire time you will be running in RAM (that's how you can do without using the hard drive, so that GParted can repartition it).02:04
renatovkwtm:  I runned the command you told me, but banshee still does not work =/02:05
kwtmrenatov: If you do not type the command "screen", then never mind.  "screen" is a command, like "ls" or "mv".  Anyway...02:05
renatovthe command "echo $DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS" is still returning a blank line too02:05
renatovoh I see02:05
kwtmrenatov: Okay, so you need to understand it a bit more before you use that command.  I did not mean for you to type the command exactly, just as an illustration.  Please do this for me: type this command and tell me what it says:02:05
kwtmrenatov: "set | grep -E DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS"  Type that, without quotes.02:06
renatovkwtm I typed the command, but it returned nothing02:06
kwtmsorry, I guess the "-E" is unnecessary.02:06
renatovok, i'll retry =]02:06
gaurangkwtm, thanks a lot for your kind help :)02:06
renatovkwtm:  nothing again =/02:06
kwtmrenatov: Ah, so it is blank.  So, you do NOT have an environment variable containing the DBUS session address.  Okay, now please open a NEW terminal window in Fluxbox (MUST be using GUI).02:07
renatovkwtm:  done!02:07
earwigs<3 ubuntu02:07
kwtmrenatov: Do *not* go to Ctrl-Alt-F1 for a text screen or anything like that.  Then in that new terminal window, type the same command.02:07
renatovkwtm:  nothing again02:07
kwtmrenatov: I'm expecting something like ... a long string of letters and numbers.02:08
renatovkwtm:  I'm typing this commando02:08
renatovkwtm:  $ export MYDBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=`set | grep DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS | sed -r -e 's/^[^=]*=//'`02:08
kwtmrenatov: Okay, so next question is: does Fluxbox support DBUS?  If it doesn't, then that's why Banshee won't find any DBUS.02:08
renatovkwtm:  but it returns nothing02:08
Joseph__hi everyone02:08

Gnea!ask | skutr302:15

sywell I had netbook remix originally, but something happened to the gnome at one point and I had to reinstall the desktop version02:15
KM0201kwtm: i've talked a LOT of people through installs here over the years... i think i can handle myself.02:15
renatovkwtm:  I sent you a private msg02:16
Gneasy: oh, the desktop version is not oriented toward netbooks, you should really just use netbook remix02:16
kwtmKM0201: Okay, sounds like Joseph__ is in good hands.  Go for it.02:16
skutr3i want to use the terminal to acess the firefox plugins directory02:16
Gneaskutr3: so use it, what's holding you back?02:16
syhmm..... I guess that means I'll lose all the settings I've put in so far...?  also, will netbook remix automatically find the drivers I need...?02:16
skutr3i dont know how to acess it from the terminal Gnea02:17
kwtmrenatov: Thank you for your paste.  It looks like you do NOT have a variable DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS.  Do you get the same output when you run it from the terminal window that you newly opened when I told you to?02:17
skutr3Gnea: what is the directory02:17
Gneasy: netbook remix is designed to "just work" so if you have any gui settings, they won't really matter. but if you have any important documents, you might want to back /home up first02:17
shcherbakFaustus: sorry, http://irc.netsplit.de/channels/?net=freenode&chat=mac , that is right one02:18
Gneaskutr3: are you looking for the global or personal directory?02:18
kwtmskutr3: explore under the ~/.mozilla directory.  Somewhere down the directory it will have a directory name with random alphanumerics, like ~/.mozilla/profiles/087uwt4hi8f0pwae or something like that.02:18
renatovkwtm:  no, in that new window I get nothing02:18
renatovkwtm:  the command returns nothing02:18

ubottuskutr3: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://tinyurl.com/2ffg7cc -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.02:18
cntbsy maybe /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins02:18
kwtmrenatov: Okay, so for some reason when you get the command-line, that environment variable does not exist.  In my system, it does (Kubuntu 10.04).  Now the question is:02:19
syGnea: I prefer the desktop version though, because I need this OS to do more than just work, I know netbooks aren't desktops but I've had this for a year and it works pretty well02:19
Gneaskutr3: then you'll need to follow those directions from ubottu to get it done correctly02:19
cntbsorry skutr3 maybe /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins02:19
syI heard Intel just put out linux drivers for laptops, maybe someone knows where I should look for them?02:19
skutr3Gnea: im on mint though02:19
kwtmrenatov: Should that variable exist whenever a GUI uses DBUS?  Or is it just something that KDE/GNOME creates for convenience?  My suspicion is the former.  What version of Ubuntu are you on? (I know you're using Fluxbox for a DE)02:20
renatovkwtm:  10.0402:20
Gneasy: Okay, well AFAIK it's using the intel video driver02:20
Gneaskutr3: why did you ask here?02:20
Gnea!mint | skutr302:20
ubottuskutr3: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu, please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org02:20
kwtmrenatov: I wonder if you can access environment variables using some other program in Fluxbox?  E.g. does the file manager allow you to, say, "run a commandline program" or something?02:20

kwtmrenatov: Well, when I run that command, I get this:02:22
KM0201kwtm: he probably did... i told him to wait and he just hits install now...lol, i have no idea what he done02:22
syGnea: I'm sorry, what is AFAIK?02:22
kwtmrenatov: "DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-cEy8uwoDjv,guid=89c312c02ee7ec64a40e741c4cd8e5f4"02:22

inaetyIf I partition some of the harddrive for another distribution, is it possible that I lose some of my data from the ubuntu patition02:23
renatovkwtm:  I guess my Dbus is ok because I can use "$ audacious --stop" etc02:23
kwtmrenatov: So that string of characters is the "secret code" of the DBUS session, and all programs apparently need it to be able to access the DBUS and get signals etc.02:23
jason_in_coloradhello one and all02:23
jason_in_coloradi have a slight issue, i install conky in ubunutu and when i click on the desktop is disappears02:24
kwtmrenatov: What!?  So audacious uses it?  Wait, try this: just run "audacious".  Does it start a new GUI window?  If yes, then either Audacious doesn't need DBUS, or somehow it's getting the correct DBUS address some other way.02:24
jason_in_coloradcan anyone help with this?02:24
kwtmrenatov: Btw, that string of characters changes each time you start the GUI, so don't just copy and paste mine into your computer.02:24
kwtmrenatov: can you do this?  "set | grep -i DBUS"02:25

=== yen-thao is now known as vubuntor439
kwtmjon8: Did your question get answered?02:59
jon8did i explain it right? do you understand what i mean?03:00
kwtmjon8: When you apt-get remove <package>, it only tells you what is no longer required, but apt-get does not actually get rid of those packages.  If you want to keep those packages, then just ignore the message.03:00
jon8kwtm right.. i know they dont get removed.. and that its recommended to remove them..03:00
jon8kwtm my question is, though.. how can i get rid of the message regarding those packages?03:00
kwtmjon8: Oh, you don't want the message?  I dunno... you want to filter it? (through grep or sed or something?)03:01
jon8kwtm nah, i just want to tell apt-get that those packages are ok.. without removing them and re-installing them03:01
kwtmjon8: The other thing you can do, I think, is apt-get install those packages.  That way, if I understand correctly (not sure), Ubuntu marks those packages as "installed because the user specifically wanted them installed" as opposed to "installed because they were necessary for another package".03:01
jon8yeah, maybe that will work03:02
jon8ill figure it out one way or another03:02
kwtmjon8: Okay.  I think you can apt-get install (without removing).  Apt-get will tell you that those packages are already installed, but (I think) it will change the mark so it knows you specifically want them installed.03:02
charlesnowhat are the risks of installing a program from the tar rather than getting a package?03:02

Ahrotahnteeanyone know of a way to prevent remote execution with OpenSSH? I have a user using it to evade utmp logs03:02

guest32hello, when i rebooted my ubuntu, when i arrived in the login menu, the keyboard and mouse stopped to works, why?03:03
charlesnocould you expound on the risks it can break something? how exactly could that occur?03:03
jon8kwtm, GOOD IDEA! Doing apt-get install <all those packages here> spit out, "already installed, already installed, etc".. then that "warning" message saying they were no longer required went away :)03:05

ajwillhi all, I have a probelm, I'm running ubuntu 10.10 maverik and windows XP on one comp, I have it dualbooting and I accidentally changed some settings the wrong way (as in meant to change them to something different) and I need to run update-grub from my ubuntu partition, however grub isnt showing up (even with holding F2 as I am running grub2) and the shift command is disabled as well, I do03:05
ajwillhave ubuntu rescue remix 10.10, help??03:05
jon8kwtm very good idea!03:05
kwtmcharlesno: There's the risk of it not being reliable, so it contains a trojan, etc.  Separately, if something else depends on your tar package, that something else might not work.  Also, your package may depend on another faulty package (might be your manual install: "I'll manually install this dependency so my tar will work" and then that package is flawed, etc.)03:05

hobodaveI just had an issue with my ubuntu server losing its static IP address and picking up a DHCP address. Could someone help me figure out what's going on here? I'm looking at syslog history and it looks like out of nowhere on Jan 7 it dhclient started sending DHCPREQUESTs to our DHCP server this continued non stop until finally today it was issued a DHCP address which seems to have replaced the static. I have double check03:07
hobodaveed /etc/network/interfaces and confirmed the static IP is properly configured.03:07
mddtskWell, I have ubuntu 10.10 installed on my lappy.  I recently tried a xubuntu liveCD, and when I left that and tried to reboot I'm met with a message telling my my init is missing03:08

jon8hobodave, do you have a router that declares local ip addresses using dhcp?03:08
kwtmcharlesno: If your package is already installed and known to work, then I think it's okay.  Watch out for when you upgrade or install on a similar system and have to go through the same manual procedure.03:08
dabukalamMaverick installations keep hanging at the "Preparing" stage, where it checks if power, internet etc. and has happened to me several times, bug or what?03:08
hobodavejon8: we have a DHCP server on our network. It is not a router.03:09
charlesnoktwm: yeah good call. thanks for the responses03:09
jon8hobodave but you have a DHCP server.. is the mac address of the laptop assigned a specific LAN IP?03:09
kwtmhobodave: Disagree with jon8; sounds like it's your own computer that's requesting DHCP, so do you have NetworkManager or something running which tries to automatically "help" you by looking for a DHCP address?03:09
jon8hobodave maybe i'm not the best guy to be talking to .. Ill let someone else help you ;)03:09

hobodavelastlog shows I'm the only user who has ever logged in via ssh03:14
kwtmhobodave: What I would do in your stead, given my own limited knowledge, is fix the problem so that it works, and then install intrusion detection system like tripwire or something.  Either reinstall server completely (if you've been rooted, nothing will detect this) or install it on some other computer that you bring onto the network.03:15
victorhugo289Excuse me, what network am I supposed to be????03:15
hobodaveinsufficient question marks to provide adequate answer03:16
kwtmhobodave: But you either decide to install a robust anti-rooting setup, or not at all, because there's no halfway with rooting.  (Installing "nothing" may be justified, so I'm not saying you must arm yourself to the teeth.)03:16
victorhugo289Tell me, please, is this Irc.freenode.net?03:16
hobodavekwtm: ok forget security03:16
hobodavewhat could have started this ?03:17
kwtmhobodave: But installing halfway is the same as installing nothing so don't bother.  This applies to rooting; if you have traces of other intrusions, then that's better.  But no traces means rooting so all or nothing.03:17
kwtmhobodave: So, if you decide no (additional) security, then, yeah, kill dhclient and you'll be done.03:17
victorhugo289What am I supposed to write on the 'Network' box in Launchpad???03:17
kwtmhobodave: Not sure... maybe some Ubuntu package that decided that "the default is dhclient, so of course EVERYONE MUST be using dhclient!!!" or some other dumb assumption.03:17

illuminarisUbuntu 11.04 / WINE 1.2.1 - WOW is running at 1 FPS (ATI Radeon 9800 PRO) I've played it with this same card in the past with no problems when there was proprietary driver support using Envy.

yeatstiocfaidharla: when did you start having problems with your system?04:11

yeatstiocfaidharla: there is a way, but if you can use another computer to do so (even Windows with UNetBootin) that would be better04:15

frankcox777llenux-matter of preference-try both-keep one04:30
jon8I do not want to have to do apt-get update (and upgrade if available) every day04:30
AbhiJitleenux, gnome is more out of the box. kde can be highly configured as per user needs etc04:30
rusiviBlueleaf: I also have a Toshiba w/ an Atheros wifi works right out of the box on Karmic, Lucid, Maverick.04:30
bullgard4jon8: Yes.04:30
dragonnutdsi just got ubuntu on my laptop, i was playing a game when my computer overheated, now i cant get a strange command line when i try to load ubuntu, can anybody help?04:30
leenuxBlue1:  does running kaffeine, k3b and amarok, say, require a lot of kde dependencies in ubuntu?  am i better off running kubuntu if i like those apps?04:30
Blue1rusivi: I had issues with 10.04 let me see if I can find the post04:30
AbhiJitleenux, kde is more eye candy eye pleasent04:30
jon8bullgard4 care to elaborate? ;)04:31
leenuxAbhiJit:  true... i like gnome but those three apps i mentioned, i like04:31
AbhiJitleenux, yes rurrning kde aps in gnome require all those kde libraries to be installed04:31
leenuxi think there's some good alternatives but i like k3b04:31
AbhiJitleenux, but you can easily install and use them04:31
bullgard4jon8: You better elaborate.04:31
* KM0201 <3's Gnomebaker04:31
AbhiJitleenux, i am using k3b, quantaplus etc in my gnome04:31
Blue1leenux: i run k3b under gnome with no issues.  but yes it hauls in a lot of kde in the process.  I use guayadeque instead of amarok but that is a pref. issue04:31
jon8bullgard4 huh? you're the one that said yes.04:31
yeatsleenux: you can use those apps in GNOME, but they won't be as pretty ;-)04:31
Blue1yeats: well said.04:32
dragonnutdsmy ubuntu died.... can anybody help?04:32
leenuxyeats:  oh :)04:32
leenuxi don't know what to do then :)04:32
Blue1dragonnutds: maybe a little more specific info?04:32
dragonnutdsi just got ubuntu on my laptop, i was playing a game when my computer overheated, now i cant get a strange command line when i try to load ubuntu, can anybody help?04:32
bullgard4jon8: I have fully answered to the question which you have put here in this channel.04:32
jon8bullgard4 you said yes, but you didnt say how it is done.04:32
leenuxdo you think there's any difference in resources usage?04:32
bullgard4jon8: This is correct.04:32
leenuxor neglible?04:32
yeatsleenux: it's easy to run both side-by-side (though you might need to clean up your app menus)04:33
Blue1dragonnutds: well the simple question is did you let it cool down, and secondly what is the message?04:33
sacarlsonmayank_: try read http://www.ehow.com/how_4929061_format-hard-drive-ubuntu.html04:33
jon8bullgard4 can you explain how it is done?04:33
steverwho has about five minutes to help me out with a network manager issue04:33
rusividragonnutsds: May want to governor your CPU via CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor. My pc would always overheat unless I used it :D04:33
AbhiJitleenux, yes04:33
leenuxclean up the app menus?04:33
leenuxi read that kde 4.5 looks really good but i dunno04:34
AbhiJitleenux, kde willbe good on more powerful pc with a good gpu04:34
dragonnutdsyes, it says somthing about a simplified grub and hitting tab for commandes, it did cool down, but i cant go and check the message because i would have to restart my computer to try to load it04:34
leenuxlike what gpu?04:34
AbhiJitleenux, gnome is fine for normal pcs04:34
bullgard4jon8: The command 'sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade' will do that.04:34
steverseriously, just five minutes04:34
leenuxi have a nvidia geforce 7950 gt... is it good enough?04:34
AbhiJitleenux, graphical procesing uint.04:34
leenuxi have an intel quad core so i think its' good enough04:34
rusividragonnutssds: My internal fan speed is not controllable by gnome sensors applet but some are, definitely check it out and if possible, run the fan at 100% all the time.04:34
AbhiJitleenux, yah i think so.more info in #kde or #kubuntu04:34
yeatsleenux: if you install kubuntu-desktop, it will bring in all the KDE apps and put them in your GNOME menus - it's a matter of preference, but I like to keep the KDE apps out of my GNOME menus - that's all I meant ;-)04:35
steveryeats:  can you give me a hand when you are done04:35
jon8bullgard4 sigh.. yes, i know this, thats what i'm doing currently. I am wondering (and i already asked) if there was something i could turn on, that will automatically do that every day or so and write to a file what it did or didnt do.04:35
leenuxyeats: oh... yes, that makes sense04:35
dragonnutdsoh, my problem is not that it is still overheating, my problem is i cant load ubuntu04:35
AbhiJitleenux, if possible first try htis on virtual box. install ubuntu and in htat instll kde and see how it looks and runs04:35

thesheff17would anyone suggest a quad port video card that works with ubuntu?04:36
Blue1dragonnutds: the easiest way to diagnose it would be to put in a live cd and see if it boots properly off of that - then we can go from there.04:36
Blueleafhold on ill try to find chip set04:36
AbhiJitleenux, in virtual box 8gb is fine04:36
KM0201Blueleaf: answer my PM, i'll tryt o help you04:36
dragonnutdsdarn, then i have to use one of my dvds and burn one....04:36
leenuxbut, on virtualbox, it uses a 'virtual gpu' so i can't get true idea of gpu related performance, right?04:36
AbhiJitleenux, no idea.04:37
leenuxAhadiel:  so 30gb is enough?04:37
Blue1dragonnutds: ah well but idea I can think of -- and cd's are cheap enough04:37
yeatsleenux: it would not be a good test of your GPU, no04:37
goddardI have been trying to setup an email server with some luck but an something that is out of most tutorials it seems is one vital aspect and that is how to setup the domain.  Can anyone enlighten me?04:37
AbhiJitleenux, 30gh? for virtual box? noooo 8 gb is enough04:37
yeatsleenux: *but* it would let you see KDE up close ;-)04:37
leenuxAbhiJit:  for the kubuntu or ubuntu partition04:37
AbhiJitleenux, both04:38
leenuxand then dedicate 8gb to virtualbox?04:38
bullgard4jon8: If this little problem is causing you a sigh then you better see your psychologist for a treatment. --  The command will write to a file what it did. --  You should put the command in a cronjob in order that the command will be executed automatically.04:38
jon8bullgard4 what file does it write to?04:38
leenuxtrying it in virtualbox is a good idea04:38
dragonnutdsit seems to happen whenever a hard shutdown accures, i have a desktop that has ubuntu, and it did the same thing when it crashed durring a update, i figured it was because of the crashing during updating so i just reinstalled....04:38
steverhow do i get network manager to work again?04:39
leenuxi think virtualbox only lists ubuntu 10.10 for the os, can i use that one if i install kubuntu 10.10?04:39
yeatsleenux: have you used virtualbox before?04:39
leenuxthe kubuntu channel is  quiet... is that a concern if i need to ask support questions?04:39
jon8bullgard4 n/m found it04:39

jon8i didnt know it logged what it did04:40
jon8i appriciate your time :)04:40
bullgard4jon8: Enjoy Ubuntu!04:40
yeatsleenux: just wondering from your question...  virtualbox will allow you to install any OS you want - it just gives you a "fake" computer to run on - you're not tied to a version04:40
steverIt was working fine, now even through the terminal I cant get it to come up04:41
leenuxyeats: last time i looked at their homepage... you can select an os for your host04:41
leenuxthere's only ubuntu as a choice not kubuntu04:41
yeatsleenux: virtualbox will run on any OS04:41
yeatsleenux: oh - I understand now04:42
yeatsleenux: yes - use Ubuntu04:42
yeatsleenux: sorry :-)04:42
leenuxthen again, it's not really de specific04:42
yeatsas far as apps go, Ubuntu = Kubuntu - it's the same OS underneath04:43
leenuxi guess desktop environment doesn't matter with virtualbox?04:43
yeatsleenux: right04:43
leenuxhmmmmmmmm kay :04:44
Blueleafi am back04:44

mayank_i opend the gparted then searched my device i tried formatting it bt still its nt happening04:47
yeatsleenux: with 4 GB, you could push that up to 1GB for your guest without issues - probably even 2GB04:48
sacarlsonleenux: I use firefox but there are options of other04:48
leenuxi guess i have a specific support question about this... do you have to install 64-bit flash from adobe website or is it included in non-free repo?04:48
leenuxyeats: right... but, i think i read it's hard to change the amount or at least, hard to raise it04:49
leenuxincrease it, rather... so if i set it to 512mb like sacarlson did, i think it's complicated to change to 1gb for e.g.?04:49
yeatsleenux: nah - not hard, you can slide it up without a problem04:49
yeatsleenux: I'd start with 1GB04:49
leenuxsacarlson:  yes, i know, like chrome?  i am wondering about 64-bit flash, though, if you can use it or if you need to install outside of the repository04:50
sacarlsonleenux:  I use the restricted package that includes flash and java and other codec needed for normal desktop pleasure https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats04:50

AbhiJitc2tarun, 64 ubuntu04:53

sacarlsonleenux: I prefer gnome apps but that's just like you because I am more familure with them05:00
tuxhacki had one such thing on an IBM x335 eSeries.. which blew my brains..05:01
bullgard4jshmoe24: You better put a more specific question here in this channel, directing it to the audience at large.05:01
leenuxsacarlson: well, i am not sure if the gnome equivalents are as good, but, must-haves are k3b and i like amarok too when listening to music files05:01
tuxhackand finally came to know that the built in raid is not supported by linux.05:01
ZykoticK9jshmoe24, is "sudo hald --daemon=no" what you are looking for?  Isn't hal deprecated at this point?05:01
leenuxalso, kaffeine is pretty good...05:01
leenuxbut other than that, i am okay with gnome apps...05:01
leenuxso, it's mostly 3 that are missing from gnome :)   i don't know how rhythmbox and brasero compare or if there's new choices05:02
sacarlsonleenux: oh yes but I have those also k3b is a must have,05:02
leenuxi'm not up to speed05:02
sacarlsonleenux: you can mix and match different gnome and kde apps05:02
leenuxi just thought that calling in all those other de libraries would bog things down but sounds like it's okay05:03
jshmoe24what does hal stand for and what does it mean. Would it cause my screen to mess up?05:03
sacarlsonleenux: you just have both libs installed05:03
ZykoticK9jshmoe24, hal = hardware abstraction layer.  what are you actually trying to do?05:03
leenuxsacarlson:  right... interesting... i haven't mixed before :).... not to much degree05:04
mister_mis bitchx still insecure?05:04

dragonnutdsi dont think so, i am a newbie at ubuntu so i just got what the windows installer came with05:10
pluxhalp44I set a folder to "share", but it doesn't show up in "network" on windows05:11
mechanateZykoticK9: chsh shows /bin/bash as active05:11
william_i remember the issue was fixed when reinstalling grub, it reset the MBR. This may or may not have anything to do with your issue, but maybe a start05:11

MagusOTBDoes linux have an OSX style unarchiver that works on zip/rar/tgz? (i.e. all it does is extract the archive to a directory with the same name as the archive had)05:12

MagusOTBa CLI equivalent would be even better. I have a bunch of different types of archives that I need to extract and it's irritating that unrar/tar/unzip all have different interfaces, and I hate shell scripting.05:14

william_dragonnutds, this may be the long way around, but you might try a smaller install of ubuntu on a separate partition, like 5 GB, then see if rebooting after install allows access to the previous kernels05:19
dragonnutdsi never partisoned, i have a internal install inside windows05:19
william_dragonnutds, i know the feeling :)05:19
william_dragonnutds, you mean like a vm?05:20

plumlooking it up...05:24
Blue1plum: System/Administration/Computer Janitor does SOME of those functions05:25
dragonnutdsabhijit, wait, so when i boot ubuntu, i boot windows05:25
AbhiJitwilliam_, virtual machine is ap inside ubuntu in that ap another os is virtualized. wubi is method to run os inside windows as pretends to be just another ap to windows but its a os to user.05:25
plumi tried that recently Blue1 , that's cool. i didn't know it had that built in.05:25
AbhiJitdragonnutds, yes05:25
dragonnutdsabhijit, that might explane why my ubuntu on my desktop (not the one im troble shooting right now) might also be having problems like the windows install05:26

mewayOk I have ubuntu server 10.10 lts or w/e is the newest version. Its not connected to the internet intentionally. It has its own network. How would I go about installing a webhost on it?06:32
MuftiManthey're on a windows 7 machine06:33
SkiLZMuftiMan, is it a network share or partition in the same computer?06:33
MuftiManit's a network shares SkiLZ06:33
mewayI have an external hardrive I can use as a resource to get things from the internet06:33
MuftiManI was following this guide too :06:33
MuftiManI changed the username as it suggested in that solution and then get "could not resolve address"06:34
SkiLZMuftiMan, You should be able to permanetly mount souch a drive with an entry in /etc/fstab, like: //server_name/share_name /path_to/mount_point cifs username=server_user,password=server_password,_netdev,uid=client_username,gid=users 0 006:34
SkiLZYou might have to change the server_name for the IP-adress06:35
mewaymaybe I should reword >_<06:35
actionparsnipMuftman: if the share is on Win7 and you use Live Messenger, there can be issues06:35
MuftiManhmm kk, I'll give that a shot06:35
MuftiManthanks actionparsnip , I don't use it but it IS installed06:35
MuftiManshould I uninstall?06:35
MuftiManI should probably add that I'm a complete novice with ubuntu. I'm heavily windows based so this is all pretty new to me06:36
Niglophow can I change my static IP address in ubuntu?06:37
mewayI have 2 routers 1 and 2, 1= internet, 2= private server network.   I want 2 to have one machine with ubuntu server on it and have a webhost on it without connecting to the internet. Is this possible and how? I also have an external hardrive I can use to get files from the internet.06:37
lvtriiMorning All06:37
lvtriiI just ran an upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 on ubuntu server06:37
lvtriiAnd everything's working fine, except my apache virtualhosts06:38
SkiLZNiglop, System >> Preferences >> Network Connections06:38
lvtriiAll the sites are showing the default "It works!" pafge06:38
lvtriiany pointers of where to look?06:38
actionparsnipMuftiman: i believe its a service. If you websearch for: ubuntu linux windows 7 shares is a pain , it should show (it's a long doc on why. I have it06:38

glacemanGood morning every1:D06:39
Haunt_Housewhy can I start a python script from the comsole, but not with a starter? It tells me permission denied06:39
MuftiManso actionparsnip , you reckon if I uninstall WLM on the w7 machine I should be able to access it?06:40
actionparsnipMheap::ease up on the enter key dude. You can write fairly large amounts of text on one line as I am showing you now06:40
soreauHaunt_House: What command are you using?06:40
Haunt_Housepython /path/script.py06:41
Haunt_Housein the console it works fine06:41
MuftiManFuckin wewt, I have to say SkiLZ , you are AWESOME06:41
mheapactionparsnip, alright. Any tips on where I should be looking?06:41
soreauHaunt_House: Could be an environment issue. Does it work if you put the command in a script with #!/bin/bash at the top?06:42
soreau! language | MuftiMan06:42
ubottuMuftiMan: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.06:42
kwtmHaunt_House: I'm not sure what "the starter" is (presumably some GNOME Ubuntu thing --I use Kubuntu KDE), but have you tried /usr/bin/python instead of just "python"?06:42
Haunt_Housesoreau, trying it06:42
MuftiManeep sorry guys06:42
SkiLZMuftiMan, :)06:42
MuftiManjust been bashing my head at this all week06:42
MuftiManand you help out in 10 minutes06:42
MuftiManwas amazing, thanks so much06:42
SkiLZThat's why they call me skilz :p06:42
actionparsnipMuftiman: there's a part to disable but i guess it does the same thing. Win7 changed the authentication method for shares as far as I can tell, typical Microsoft really06:42
Haunt_House#!/bin/sh I use this, but that works, soreau06:43
soreauHaunt_House: cool06:43
Haunt_Housekwtm, starter is a clickable icon06:43
kwtmHaunt_House: Well, you're really trying to run /usr/bin/python, not /bin/sh, right?06:43
soreauHaunt_House: yea kwtm is right06:43
Haunt_Housekwtm, basically I try to change my desktop background at startup, but I'm working my way there06:43
Haunt_Housekwtm, I included that lin in the actual script06:44
actionparsnipMheap: is the web page data in the right place? Does the new version use the same folder?06:44
soreauHaunt_House: using gconftool?06:44
MuftiManSecond, just trying to add other mounts06:44
kwtmHaunt_House: Are you sure a script at startup is the best way to do it?  Anyway, assuming that it is ... it sounds like "starter" is the menu system in (GNOME) Ubuntu?  Or do you have an actual desktop icon called "starter"?  If either one, I might be able to help; if "starter" is a non-menu desktop icon that came with Ubuntu already, I'd have to profess ignorance since I use KDE.06:45
mheapactionparsnip, yes. apache.conf contains "Include /etc/apache2/sites-enabled", and all of the vhosts are in there as before06:45
Haunt_Housesoreau, I tried it via system menu. There's one called sessions and it allows you to run stuff at login06:46
kwtmHaunt_House: well, not the actual script, but what command are you trying to run from "starter"?  If your *script* starts with "#!/usr/bin/python", that doesn't matter since only bash or some other console will read that line.  Does "starter" read that line?06:46
actionparsnipHaut_house: there are guides on how to create a script to change the wallpaper.with relation to time. It will give the gconf command06:46
kwtmHaunt_House: As an example, if I install a new menu item (under my Kubuntu) then I'd have to say:  run the command '/usr/bin/python /path/to/myscript.py'.  It might not be enough to say: run the command '/path/to/myscript' or the command 'python /path/to/myscript'  (even if my script starts with "#!/usr/bin/python")06:48
nickkontoshello, i recently bought a usb game controller and trying to configure it I accidentally made it to act as a mouse :/ how can I undo this? it's very annoying...06:48
soreauHaunt_House: FWIW, there is an automatic fading wallpaper changer in compiz 0.906:48
nickkontosubuntu 10.1006:48
Haunt_Housekwtm, I tried several approaches. right now I tried running it directly with 'python /path/script.py' and via a shellscript running script.py. both solutions work in the console, none work otherwise06:48
actionparsnipHaunt_house: http://joeamined.wordpress.com/2008/02/15/automatically-changing-wallpaper-relatively-to-daytime-in-ubuntu/06:48
soreaunickkontos: What did you do to make it behave this way?06:49
mheapactionparsnip, got it. I need to use NameVirtualHost in the newer versions of apache, I could get away without using it in previous versions06:49
actionparsnipMheap: glad you got the gold06:49
Haunt_HouseSystem>Preferences>Sessions thats exactly the place where I tried the pythonscript to run06:50
kwtmHaunt_House: Hmm... sorry, sounds like your query is specific to GNOME Ubuntu so I won't be able to help you.06:50
Haunt_Housekwtm, dunno, at least I got the button to say permission denied06:51
nickkontossoreau, I don't know :/ I just know that I did a lot of things trying to make it just work with no success.. until I rebooted! then it worked but it worked too much... some of the applications that I have installed during this was joy2key and jscalibrator06:51
kwtmWell, good luck, Haunt_House.06:52
actionparsnipHaut_house: you can add the script there and it will run once. You will need to mark it exectable and reference it absolutely06:52
nickkontosI just entered "joystick" on the search field of the software center and installed anything that I thought could help, soreau06:52
=== mister_m is now known as mister_m-away
kwtmHaunt_House: Of course!  actionparsnip has a point --is your script executable?  By all?  That must be the cause of the "permission denied" message.06:53
actionparsnip!away > mister_m-away06:53
ubottumister_m-away, please see my private message06:53
Haunt_Houseif it is, the button tells me it's not there, if it isn't it tells me permission denied06:53

jpmonettesomebody know how to use mod_accesslog in lighttpd? I can't start my daemon06:55
mister_m-awayso stay out of my business please06:55
MuftiManBlah ok I celebrated a little early, SkiLZ , lol06:55
MuftiManI can only add ONE share at the moment06:55
kwtm? Not sure what that !away message is about.  Isn't it dependent on the client whether a user ends up announcing "Hey, I'm away!  Yes, away!  You hear me?"  Does the Ubuntu IRC channel want to recommend a particular IRC client that doesn't cause this problem?06:55
MuftiMantrying to add another, I get "Couldn't chdir to /mount/media/d: No such file or directory"06:56
MuftiManEven though I made it with sudo mkdir -p /mount/media/d06:56
mister_m-awaykwtm, something about a complex and napoleon06:56
SkiLZgimmie a sec06:57
MuftiManlol thanks SkiLZ , appreciate all the help you're givin btw06:58
kwtmYea! GParted has completed 2 of 3 operations and will now only take a *short* eternity to actually expand the size of my main Ubuntu partition!  (Why won't Ubuntu fit into 4G any more?  Used to be I'd install Linux in 2G partitions and have plenty of space left over)06:58
MuftiManOh, I thought I was done :( seems I only did a "proof of concept" lol06:59
tt What's the difference between Grub2 and Grub?07:00
ZorlinGrub2 is a pain in the ass07:00
Haunt_Houseif I put this in the python script '#!/bin/python' do I have to use the python command to start it?07:00
ZorlinNo, Grub2 is more modular and more advanced07:00
Zorlinand (AFAIK) has a lot of redesigned configuration (tt)07:01
kwtmHaunt_House: Not if you run it from the command line.  If it's some other program (e.g. "starter"), not so sure.07:01
ttZorlin:How to know which version I install?07:02
mewayHello I installed ubuntu server on a machine without it being connected to the internet. After plugging it into the network how do I make it obtain an IP address and connect to the internet?07:02
kwtmHey, let me try a factoid!07:02
kwtm!who | Zorlin07:02
ubottuZorlin: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)07:02
Zorlintt: Which version of Ubuntu are you using?07:02
Zorlinkwtm: I already knew that... =_=07:02
Zorlinkwtm: I was using it already07:02
kwtmHey, it's worked!07:02
kwtmZorlin: Yeah, I know.  I was just trying out factoids. :)07:03
kwtm!dont-overuse-factoids | kwtm07:03
Zorlintt: I would recommend using grub207:03
Zorlintt: as its generally considered the "supported" version of grub on the default system07:03
kwtmZorlin: So Grub2 is a more modular, more advanced pain in the ass.07:03
soreaumeway: ifconfig eth0 <ip> && dhclient eth007:03
Zorlinkwtm: Yeah, pretty much. I don't particularly like it, but its also probably the way forward07:04
kwtmZorlin: I'm still using Grub(1) because I used it before and I don't want to mess with it corrupting my triple boot.07:04
Zorlinkwtm: =]07:05
ttWhen I tap 'grub' in terminal,it says 'grub uninstall'.What's wrong?07:05
Haunt_HouseHAHA, I got it07:05
Zorlinso in truth tt: basically you can use either one07:07
Zorlinand tt: you need to run grub-setup I think07:07
ttZorlin:Th you07:08
bj0Wom 407:08
guinesswhats up room07:09
ttZorlin:I find it's hard for to learn Grub07:09
mewaysoreau: santex error near "&&"07:09
Zorlintt: generally users don't have to deal with grub07:09
mewaynear unexpected token "&&" *07:10
Zorlinwhy do you need to install it? did you uninstall it earlier or something?07:10
soreaumeway: You need to replace <ip> with a real internal ip07:10
meway>_> what?07:10
mewaysoreau without the <> ?07:10
soreaumeway: What nameserver is there in /etc/resolv.conf?07:10
ttzorlin:After installing win7,I have to learn Grub.07:11
mewaysoreau: can you be more specific of what the internal ip is? (routers IP) or what?07:11
Zorlintt: Oh, to restore it?07:11
Anom01yanyone know why google earth doesnt work in Ubuntu for me ?07:12
Zorlintt: As in installing Windows 7 got rid of it?07:12
soreaumeway: Keep it in the channel please07:12
Haunt_Housesoreau, kwtm, changing all paths in the script to absolute seems to have helped (:07:12
mewaysoreau: k I'm going to look in that file one sec brb server is in another room >_<07:12
soreauHaunt_House: Its never a bad idea07:12
kwtmHaunt_House: Oh!! I see now; the "permission denied" was not for the script itself; the script was executing and the "permission denied" error was generated by the script, then!07:13
TomCX..i have 'app' source code already downloaded+add modification, but want to do 'apt-get' for the dependency via internet...how to do that?07:13
kwtmHaunt_House: Note for the future: your environment is not necessarily inherited when you run the script, so $PATH etc. may be different.  I see a lot of people run python scripts not with "#!/usr/bin/python" but with "#!/usr/bin/env python".  But that doesn't always work, either, so set your $PYTHONPATH and $PATH.07:14
kwtmHaunt_House: and $PWD, too.07:14
Haunt_Housekwtm, starter works now and maybe it'll work at boot. Thank you both, kwtm  and soreau. If you want, I'll put you on the thanks list when my live action series starts07:14
kwtmHaunt_House: Live action?  Is that, like, Spongebob Squarepants using real actors instead of cartoon?07:15
soreau! work | Zorlin07:15
ubottuZorlin: Doesn't work is a strong statement. Does it sit on the couch all day? Does it want more money? Is it on IRC all the time? Please be specific! Examples of what doesn't work tend to help too.07:15
Haunt_Housekwtm, yes, but with actors instead of spongebob07:16
Zorlinsoreau: ???07:16
santhoshhi guys some one help me07:16

santhoshi run a ping command on ubuntu 10.04 server07:16
Zorlintt: if you're using a liveCD to fix grub07:16
kwtmTomCX: I think what you mean is: you modified an app that would otherwise be available as a package, so you want to install the dependencies for that package, but use your own customized version of that package itself, yes?07:16

nVeeHey guys. I have a "testing" server (latest desktop build) running a clean copy of a LAMP server07:17

MadRobotHi all07:41
MadRobotHow do I fix a BADSIG problem in Maverick?07:42
jitithi, does anyone know how to determine whther my USB network card works in "managed mode" ?07:42
soreaujitit: Since managed mode is the typical function, it should work07:42
jititoh hehe, thanks07:43
mewaysoreau: well I can tell you what the board is. the lan is onboard. (I will do dmesg in a moment) Tyan thunder 2500, dualcore pentium3 933 processor, 8gb ram.07:43
histojitit: managed mode should work. that's a normal connection to an AP07:43
jititmanaged mode means its ability to detect networks?07:43
mewaysoreau: idk if that helps with what you were asking or not :|07:43
soreaumeway: Yes but lspci gives you specific information about the pci hardware bus07:43
mewaysoreau: so what is it that you want me to do? dmesg gives me a very large list of things wich would be difficult to catch using just terminal. (this should also help. the drive was made on one machine and than stuck in the tyan thunder later on.)07:46
mewaysoreau: everything on the machine is new just out of the box07:46
mewaysoreau: the reason that the drive was stuck in later on is because the tyan had a tendancy to dislike disk drives and freeze07:47
soreaumeway: Its possible the module isnt being loaded. You need to look at the output of lspci, identify your NIC there and google it to find the kernel module name, then load it with modprobe and see if you get an eth0 iface07:48
mewaysoreau: its safe to assume that its not activated or the wrong drivesr are installed07:48
SkiLZI am using Google Chrome, when on facebook chat I get a message it makes a beep noise, it's really annoying, how can I disable this?07:49

nVeewell for new files?08:15
nVeeand folders08:15
nVeeIf I wanted to set it to 777 for both new files and new folders?08:15
maconVee: the 775 sounds right, though i didnt know it behaved differently for folders versus files...08:15
maconVee: 777 means umask is 00008:15
nVeemaco, i more question08:16
nVee1 more question08:16
nVeecan I add "nobody" to a usergroup08:16
nVeethat would mean that someone could access the shared folder08:16
nVeeand also have the same previledges of the users within that usergroup?08:16

Madpilotsharif, restart the computer? "sudo shutdown -r now" works09:00
Grav soreau: i know i can choose x settings there, but when i save and start Ubuntu it resets09:00
mac123that allowed it to show that I have a usb adapter and bring up the option in the little task bar but will not connect or light up09:00
Madpilotsharif, "-r" is "restart"09:00
GneaChilaquiles: some consider it a feature, not a bug09:00
soreauGrav: Could be a permissions issue. Try running this as your normal user: sudo chown -R $USER $HOME09:01
soreauGrav: Then reload the applet and resave the settings09:01
Chilaquilesso then it seems like a very simple task as suspend needs a lot of resources09:01
mac123any ideas?09:02
=== richard is now known as Guest85001
GneaChilaquiles: yup, so just make a new swapfile like it says to and it should work fine from there09:02
Chilaquilesok i will follow the steps09:03
MadpilotChilaquiles, suspend is moving your *entire session* to memory. Not actually "simple"...09:03
soreauMadpilot: From memory to disk*09:03
ChilaquilesMadpilot, so then if I ony have 1 window open then it shouldn't be a problem to suspend09:04
Gneamac123: have you located it in the list of adapters that are known to work?09:04
Madpilotsoreau, right. Being lazy w/ definitions tonight. Good point.09:04
MadpilotChilaquiles, that depends on your system setup and much else.09:04
Chilaquilesso Madpilot, you also recommend me to increase my swap¿09:05
soreauChilaquiles: Its almost like taking a snapshot or save state of your system. Your swap should be about the size of your system ram or larger09:05
soreau! swap09:05
ubottuswap is used to move unused programs and data out of main memory to make your system faster. It can also be used as extra memory if you don't have enough. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SwapFaq for more info09:05
GneaMadpilot: I suggested it since his swap is only 256M and he's got 1G of ram09:05
MadpilotChilaquiles, equal or double your RAM is the usual recommendation.09:06
Chilaquilesok thx09:06
Gneafigured 2G ought to be good enough09:06

ChrisDruifre talking swap is it?09:07
MadpilotI'm a lousy example, I don't currently even have a swap partition set up. But I never suspend (desktop, not laptop) and have 2GB of RAM, so it's not important09:07

OvermindDL1Greetings, Ubuntu 10.10 is using a built-in ancient version of Samba (3.5.4) which is incompatible with the new Win7 computers on my work network, when I try to remove smbclient so I can manually update to 3.5.6+ it tries to remove ubuntu-desktop, which is a bit undesirable.  What is the proper way to get Samba updated to a point where it actually works with other computers in Ubuntu 10.10?09:16

speakmanGnea: I'm sorry if I'm bitchy, but would you mind explaining why Linux has no problem forwarding packets from eth0 to eth1, but won't forward from eth0 to tap0?09:43
Gneaspeakman: better yet - why don't you try it locally first?09:43
llutzchaospsychex: use sudo and close all other instances of  package-managers09:44
speakmanGnea: (this won't leave my head until I find myself an explanation:)09:44
Gneaspeakman: eth0 and eth1 are real interfaces and you can place them on the same physical hub or switch09:44

chaospsychexllutz everything is closed09:44
mac123if I run locate on a file will it return the first result or all results?09:44
chaospsychexllutz: the only thing i have open is xchat and synaptic09:44
=== asd is now known as Guest64369
Jordan_Umac123: All.09:45
Gneaspeakman: tap0 is a virtual (read: fake) interface, it doesn't have a real connection to anything. creating a bridge to a real interface is the 'virtual' method of connecting a patch cable between a switch and a virtual hub09:45
mac123so I do it and it only returns 1 but if I manually go to the folder and do an ls it shows it's there09:45
Gneamac123: it will return all results that it knows about09:46
Jordan_Umac123: What is the exact locate command you're using, and did you update the locate database (sudo updatedb) since the files were created?09:46
speakmanGnea: but connecting two interfaces to a hub doesn't make them share IP addresses?09:47
mac123did not update now it's returning the files correctly09:47
user__how would i apt-get "imwheel" program please?09:47
user__i typed "sudo apt-get imwheel" into terminal and it said invalid command09:48
Gneaspeakman: also keep in mind, openvpn is not a typical vpn software, it's extremely extensible and flexible, so yes, it can handle nat just fine as well09:48
Myrttiuser__: forgot the "install"09:48
user__install gotcha thanks hehe09:48
speakmanGnea: But anyway - isn't tap0 (in opposite to tun0) supposed to "emulate" an ethernet interface?09:48
user__i am such a noob09:49
Gneaspeakman: whichever interfaces belong to a bridge device are not real devices anyone, only the bridge device is, so yes, whatever ip you assigne to br0 is what is assigned to all interfaces that are associated to that br009:49
Gneaspeakman: yes, tap0/tun0 is basically an ethernet device that faces the internet09:49
Myrttiuser__: I've used Ubuntu for good six years now and I still forget it at times09:49

minimecdoc`: If you use the official ubuntu package... 'flashplugin-installer'10:24
Leman_Russivanz: that doesn't make sense.  If it is a public computer, and the screensaver activates, you will still be the logged in user, so what is the problem.  When you log-out / turn off, your programs will all terminate10:24

ivanzGnea: I will configure without password after screensaver10:28
oCeanivanz: do you know there is a difference between *logout* and *screensaver* ?10:29
minimecdoc`: What ubuntu version are you using? What flash-package do you have installed (exact version)? This is the dependancies list of the maverick 'flashplugin-installer'...10:29

sacarlsonivanz: and maybe delete all files in that users /home/user and maybe fill it with what is seen in a new account?10:34

rmxz[regarding my earlier questions on sandy bridge about 30 minutes ago] Googling for backports for supporting sandy bridge on 10.10 isn't turning up much.   Closest I see is an article on Intel's blog which suggests that the most viable alternatives as of Jan 4 were (a) compile your own kernel, intel drivers, mesa, and X, or (b) try the pre-released ubuntu 11*.11:45
