James147HandyGandy: tests it with a new user10:13
orzelhi... since i've updated to maverick, kmail wont start. It complains about "kmail: error while loading shared libraries: libkontactinterface.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"10:14
orzeli've tried updating/upgrading.. but that wont fix it.  Then i've installed 'by hand' a package called libkontactinterface4, and now there's another missing dependancy "kmail: error while loading shared libraries: libakonadi-contact.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"10:14

eldowanI have 10.10 installed, and had used network manager to setup my internet connection for my server. However, once I log the user out, the connection dies. Is there a way to disable this? If I make edit the /etc/network/interfaces file, will that work correctly?15:38
BluesKajeldowan, ethernet?15:39
eldowanyes, wired ethernet15:39
BluesKajok eldowan , this may help: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/setting-up-an-network-interfaces-file/15:40
BluesKajeldowan, also list all IPs on your network in /etc/hosts.allow file like this : ALL:192.168.x.x15:42
=== gary_ is now known as Guest88045
eldowanBluesKaj: cool. I'm familiar with the interfaces file, but I know network manager overwrites resolv.conf. I don't know if network manager also overwrites the interfaces file as well.15:43
eldowanThat's a great link though, thanks for that.15:44
BluesKajeldowan, remove network manager if you're going to rely on the interfaces file15:44
BluesKajit will only interfere with your settings and cause probs15:45
eldowanBluesKaj: aah! thanks. I think thats exactly what I was looking for.15:45
BluesKajeldowan, network manager is only good for the complexities required by wifi settings15:47
eldowanoh good grief. it really threw me for a loop until I recognized that the network died when my user logged off. :/15:48
BluesKajset the interfaces file in each pc / server on the network , eldowan15:49
eldowanBluesKaj: yeah, thanks for the reminder. I guess I should have set the interfaces file before I removed the network-manager15:50
eldowanaah, i'm a dumbass15:50
BluesKajeldowan, just use ifconfig to find the IPs and route find the gateway IP and you should be ok15:50
eldowanBluesKaj: if i don't get disconnected. sure.15:50
=== Guest71180 is now known as RaNdY
=== RaNdY is now known as Guest77100

dendriteyea no problems there23:47
Torchdendrite: well, strange. you can just save the new config to a file in your home dir in nvidia-settings23:47
dendriteok i'll try that23:47
Torchdendrite: then copy that file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf with sudo23:48
Torchdendrite: that should work23:48
dendriteah ok23:48
Torchdendrite: backup the old file23:48
Torchdendrite: before you overwrite it23:48
dendritesaving xorg.conf to my home directory isn't allowed either23:48
dendritemust be something with the gui23:49
Torchdendrite: hmm23:49
dendriteyea lol..23:49
dendriteI *could* just manually edit xorg. but I need to look around to see how to setup dual monitors correctly23:49
Torchwait, that tool doesn't save an xorg.conf file, does it?23:49
Torchit saves an nvidia-settings rc file23:50
dendritei was pretty sure it saved a xorg.conf file23:50

Torchdendrite: if you click on "save current configuration" (i assume that's what you do)23:50
dendritetorch: yes that's what i do23:50
Torchdendrite: you get a gtk save file dialog that suggests .nvidia-settings-rc as file name23:50
Torchdendrite: that's nothing to do with xorg.conf. that's for running the nvidia-settings tool at login23:51
dendritehm. i'm not getting anything with nvidia-settings.rc23:51
Torchdendrite: ah, and there's "safe to X configuration file" under "x server display configuration"23:51
Torchdendrite: did you try that one?23:51
Torchdendrite: so you're actually trying that one?23:52
dendritebut i am able to see a preview of the xorg.conf file before i actually save it. I copied that to my clipboard and I'm just gonna to put in xorg with an editor23:52
dendriteyes i tried that one23:52
Torchdendrite: and then it complains it needs privileges?23:52
Torchdendrite: and asks for a password?23:52
dendriteno it just says it couldn't parse the "/etc/X11/xorg.conf" file or "/home/$USER/xorg.conf"23:53
Torchdendrite: hmm, aha23:53

hmmmzi need a bit of help or if someone can tell me if its not possible with this distro..im trying to install ubuntu server 10.10 from a usb stick but the installation halts saying it cant find the cd..any ideas how to fix this or should i give up now and try a diffrent distro ??23:56
dendriteTorch: well it worked. copying the preview xorg.conf file into a new xorg.conf (after backing up original) seems to be working. now i have dual monitors yay!23:58
Torchdendrite: very good.23:58
dendritejust wish i didn't have to do all that.  using the gui should be able to work as in gnome under 10.1023:59
Torchdendrite: blame nvidia, not KDE23:59
Torchdendrite: and you're right, of course.23:59
Torchdendrite: it absolutely should work23:59
