bird_turdis Ruby a useful programming language?01:21
schnufflebird_turd: yes01:21
aeon-ltdbird_turd: depends on the purpose, but any heavily used language is01:21
Aginorbird_turd: it's as useful as any other programming language, it depends on what you feel comfortable with and what you're trying to achieve01:21
linuxman410gnewb the asus eeepc only has a 900 celeron processor01:21
linuxman410the 7-1 that is01:22
bird_turdwhat kind of things does it typically get used for01:22
gnewblinuxman410: Have you also looked at the 'lighter' versions?01:22
linuxman410can u name a few01:22
aeon-ltdlinuxman410: the truth about unr is, is that its in no way (technically) better than stock ubuntu.01:22
schnufflebird_turd: most kown is certainly rails web development01:23
xangualinuxman410: maybe lubuntu or xubuntu will fit to your needs01:23
gnewblinuxman410: Xubuntu is one, Lubuntu is about the lightest I have seen.01:23

jPuffhow do i install xchat on my ubuntu 10.10 desktop? its connected to the internet but its not the one im using now01:24
bird_turdis it good for regular desktop applications(word processor-type things, maintenance tools, etc). non-web things01:25
aeon-ltdjPuff: are you using gnome-xchat?01:25
PosheHow do you even OPEN sdcc? I followed all the installation instructions but I can't open it?01:25
jPuffi am using freenode webchat01:25
aeon-ltdbird_turd: imo, c would be better01:25
joe_jPuff: go to the ubuntu software centre01:25
aeon-ltdjPuff: sudo apt-get install xchat01:25

PosheHow do you open sdcc? I installed it following the instructions but I can't seem to open it?01:27
gnewbHell ActionParsnip, <Vigo here>01:28
julia_23sacarlson: hmm.  If I create a primary and designate it as "/" , can I not worry about not assigning a swap and a /boot?01:28
sacarlsonjulia_23: so If you could delete your swap I think that will work,  with it deleted you can create the primary at that location and create anther partition after for swap in a extended partitiion01:28
lmaowhat are the Ubuntu bot triggers01:28

ggomezbecause dependy problems with libraries01:29
ggomezI'v already installed but says it is doesn't01:30
julia_23sacarlson: I can create a primary with the unallocated space01:30
Posheschnuffle: I can't OPEN the app.01:30
julia_23sacarlson: if I do not assign a swap, or a /boot,  will ubuntu install properly, then I can assign a /boot and /swap later?01:31
wedwo-ggomez, shouldn't have any dependency problems if you install it with synaptic. I have it installed on 10.04 and it works01:31
julia_23sacarlson: once I get ubuntu up and working on the new partiton, I will delete all the others01:31
ggomezI didnt find the package01:31
ggomezI ve kubuntu 10.0401:31
julia_23sacarlson: or is it much better to assign a /boot and swap before installing to save the hasstle?01:32
sacarlsonjulia_23: is just that first partition that needs to be a primary you will have 8 partitions to play with or more after that first space is alocated as a primary from the removal of swap01:32

kwtmHey, a fellow Kubuntu user!  ggomez, you're saying that you've installed "xmms" but when you run xmms, it says command not found?  Or you don't find it in the menu?  Or it says it can't install?01:33
schnuffle!terminal | Poshe01:33
ubottuPoshe: The linux terminal or command-line interface is very powerful. Open a terminal via Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal (Gnome), K-menu -> System -> Konsole (KDE), or Menu -> Accessories -> LXTerminal (LXDE). Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UsingTheTerminal01:33

kwtmggomez: Hi.  You said "I cant install it" --I guess you were answering my question, right?01:36
kwtmKM0201: Did you mean to aim that at ggomez?01:36
KM0201kwtm: or you, whoever had the xmms question01:37
adubon ubuntu 10.04 how can i enable root ssh logins by default01:37
kwtmKM0201: Your answer makes me think you meant to point it at ggomez.  I did not have any question at all.01:37
adubi want to be able to login directly as root01:37
a7i3nSo I installed vuse. The program runs. But the buttons don't work...01:37
adubi know this isnt a good idea but i really need to do it01:37
KM0201oh ok... well ggomez scroll up for info about xmms2  ;)01:37
schnufflePoshe: sdcc is a comand line too so you just enter sdcc and it should run. the tool has no GUI01:38
adubi need to winscp files over to certain folders01:38
greg777if someone is willing to help with packaging issues please pm01:38

AlecTaylorHow do I reinstall grub2 from my old 10.04 liveCD?01:38
* AlecTaylor used the alternate 10.10 CD01:38
adubthere is a valid use to doing this01:38
Posheschnuffle: sadly, it doesn't run...01:38
schnufflewhat doe it tell you?01:38
kwtmadub: I will tell you how if you really want, but it would be MUCH more secure if you didn't do a root login.  You could, for example, login as a user and then sudo the files into place.01:38
KM0201adub: then why did you choose ubuntu?  use fedora or debian, etc.. that allow a root login01:38
a7i3nHow do I instal vuse so that it actually works?01:38
Posheschnuffle: I'm trying to sudo apt-get it right now.01:38

KM0201!mint | joe_01:39
ubottujoe_: Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu, please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org01:39
Aginorkwtm: I'm not a fan of either language, but I'd say I use python more than ruby myself. So I'm not sure I can answer your question without doing some research on library support for both language01:39
ComradeHaz`um, jason, are you talking to me?01:39
Posheschnuffle: or something like that.01:39
kwtmggomez: Wow, are you speaking to me?  About 20 people spoke between my asking you a question and you answering.01:39
schnufflejoe_: really nice impression01:39
kwtm!who | ggomez01:39
ubottuggomez: 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 :)01:39
greg777@joe very awesome distro highly recommend it01:39

ubottukwtm :): Please investigate with me only with "/msg ubottu Bot" or in #ubuntu-bots.  Search for factoids with "/msg ubottu !search factoid".01:40
greg777if you want rolling release, however, try linux mint debian edition01:40
Aginorkwtm: but I can only presume that both languages have decent c-bindings, which would make the question more of a moot point since it'd always be possible to fall back on c-libraries01:40
adubwell on winscp how can i move files over using this program to directories that require root access01:40
joe_schuffle: how is your ubuntu going?01:40

=== Guest38741 is now known as RaNdY
greg777anybody have packaging experience?01:41
kwtmadub: GOod question. I'm afraid I don't have an answer for you, so I'll tell you have to allow SSh login as root, but just keep in mind that you are deliberately making it possible for anyone to login as root (and install a rootkit, which you'll probably never detect).  Still want to know?01:41
KM0201adub: perhaps you should google some terminal commands... everything you want to do, does not require a root account01:41
Aginorbut I think that if we're going to have a religious war about programming languages, it would be a good idea to move it to a different channel ;)01:41

adubkwtm if they know my password01:42

adubhow do i enable root login01:42
Posheschnuffle: I'm not sure what you mean by binary?01:42
Aginorkwtm: have you heard of the distributed botnets that try to guess and bruteforce ssh passwords for common usernames, including root? :)01:43
greg777@adub: sudo psswd01:43
kwtmadub: Well, I wouldn't say that it would happen only if "they know my password" because: a) they can find out your password (you *are* logging in from a Windows machine, after all), or b) there may be other ways without a password.  Aaanyway.01:43
schnufflePoshe: an executable file called sdcc01:43
kwtmAginor: I think you meant to tell that to adub.01:43
greg777then change the password01:43
Aginorkwtm: sorry, I did01:43
greg777then login as su01:43
adubi figured it out01:43
Aginoradub: have you heard of the distributed botnets that try to guess and bruteforce ssh passwords for common usernames, including root? :)01:43
kwtmadub: Okay, on the man page, it says Client access may be more finely tuned via the /root/.ssh/authorized_keys file (see below) and the PermitRootLogin server option.01:43
Aginoradub: for ssh security, I'd strongly recommend that you only allow ssh key logins01:44
kwtmadub: If you are going to permit root logins, I strongly recommend you don't allow password logins, and also not to use the default port of 22.  Try 22222 or something greater than 1024.01:44
kwtmadub: Yeah, what Aginor said.01:44
schnufflekwtm: security by obscurity doesn't work01:45
kwtmKM0201: Does WinSCP allow terminal access?  I haven't used Windows for a long time but I didn't know that it did.  I think it's only a file manager.01:45
schnufflekwtm: maybe it leans up your logs a bit01:45
KM0201kwtm: honestly, i really don't know...01:45
kwtmschnuffle: ?? Sorry, I don't understand the context.  Did you intend your text for someone else?01:46
Posheschnuffle: I can't seem to be able to find the file actually, in local/bin. there's only a local/share01:46
KM0201kwtm: but logic says if you use the proper terminal command, you should be able to use terminal;01:46

curtmackSo, I put together a new computer, and as a result I upgraded to the 64-bit version of Ubuntu. However, after 30 minutes or so of uptime, the mouse and keyboard simultaneously freeze.01:47
xanguaJeroenzKlompz: the new gdm no longer supports that kind of themes01:47
curtmackThe rest of the system runs fine after this, however01:47
kwtmKM0201: I think the this Windows GUI program is supposed to make it easy for the type of person who typically uses a Windows system.  I know there's Putty for Windows, too, but that doesn't have a file manager capability.01:47
JeroenzKlompzxangua, :(01:47
ggomezwedwo- It works !!!!!01:47

JeroenzKlompzxangua, where can i check for those stuff these days01:48
=== Braindead is now known as Guest58272
kwtmschnuffle: Oh!  I see what you are referring to.  You're right that changing the port won't prevent an attack, but I think it decreases the possibility of a drive-by attack since a script-kiddie would need to spend a lot more time port-scanning if they gove above 1024.01:48

ipatrolwhy is it that when I unmount my hard drive, /proc disappears01:50
Aginorkwtm: having 2222 or 22222 or 222222 as alternative ports for ssh is hardly going to make much of a difference nowadays since they're well established as alternative ports01:50

USS_OHIOhrmm there a specific  graphix setting that would make my GPU thermal temps raise significantly?01:55
trismascheel: upstart will run the scripts in rc*.d but those are not the primary scripts (the upstart specific ones are in /etc/init/)01:56
ChuckBorrusgreppy: you on?01:56
ascheeltrism: Thanks a ton.  :)01:56
ascheeltrism: it's not a typical script.  How do I prevent it from executing?  Do I need to delete it or is there a way to simply disable it>?01:57
trikingOk. My goal is to use a livecd to boot into an install located on a USB harddisk. In other words, I'm using the livecd as a bootloader because my internal drive is completly toast. Wut do?01:57
trismascheel: upstart will not run any scripts in that directory that don't end in .conf (I usually move them to .conf-disabled), but if you want to still be able to start them manually, it is probably better to edit the script and add "and never" to the start on line01:58

USS_OHIOand it's only done this when i'm in ubuntu02:03

ascheelUSS_OHIO: no graphics card should get that hot.  If it does, there ARE hardware issues.02:03
ascheelI'm not saying there might be, I'm saying there ARE02:03
schnuffleneedlez: and the problem?02:03
ItsMeMariohey guys, i've a project that compiles with cmake how can i add a .h to the path ?02:03
ascheelfull throttle going balls to the wall, your video card shouldn't go that high IMO02:03
needlezproblem is sudo pm-suspend doesnt work want a command to shutdown the computer that wont require me to be in sudo cuz this script is an autorun script so that i can run it and totem will open then play a movie then close then the computer will shutdown/ sleep02:04
rtdos2 questions: what happened to xdm and is there a desktop similar to the one on MacOS?02:04
schnuffleneedlez: sudo takes a password, that won't work in batch mode02:05
ascheelneedlez: create a c wrapper and use SETUID on it to execute as root even though you're not root02:05
needlezisn't there like a way to just run a shutdown command which doesnt require root priv??02:06
needlezlike shutdown -h or something??02:06
ascheelshutdown and reboot both require root privs.02:06
ascheelneedlez: I'm telling you how to do it.  c wrapper with SETUID02:06
rtdosyou could probably write a script that passes the value02:06
needlezascheel: have no idea about cwrapper at all? please explain or give example02:07
ascheelneedlez: do you know what SETUID is?02:07
needlezascheel: nope02:07
shmupAny LoL players in here, that actually managed getting it to run with Wine?02:07
shmupI'd love to chat with you one on one. :x02:07
rtdosLoL shump?02:08
shmupleague of legends02:08
shmupthe league players would know what i meant, so i just went with the acronym ._.02:08
rtdoshaven't tried it YET maybe i should.02:08
shmupwell, it definitely causes problems02:08
curtmackProblem: My keyboard and mouse freeze after a while. However, the rest of the system continues to run. Can anyone help?02:08
shmupbut you should give it a shot02:09
shmupthen report back to me :D02:09
rtdosi will shump thanks. :D02:09
ascheelneedlez: when you run a program, it executes as your user.  Setting the SETUID bit will force the program to run as whoever owns it02:09
needlezascheel: ok?02:09
ascheelneedlez: so if root owns it and SETUID is enabled, then ANYBODY that executes the program will execute it as though they are root02:09
ascheelneedlez: you cannot do it with scripts because Linux doesn't allow it, but C programs will work.  A c wrapper is a small program written in c that has the sole purpose of executing a command02:09
yshiDoes anyone have any strong opinions on which is better, ubuntu 10.04 or 10.10?02:10
ascheelneedlez: because it's a binary program and not a script, you can turn on SETUID.  I have one set up.  Getting you an example02:10
needlezascheel: ok02:10
ascheelneedlez: http://paste.ubuntu.com/555616/02:11
ascheelcreate a c program with that, compile it, then do this:  sudo chown root: /path/to/shutdown/program && sudo chmod 4755 /path/to/shutdown/program02:11
ascheelneedlez: do not ever ever set an execution line in a c wrapper to execute a script.  Ever.02:12
needlezascheel: my script works perfectly, the only issue is that sudo pm-suspend sometimes requires password but other times it doesn't that really all i need to figure out, but thank you for the idea with the c wrapper02:12
trikingI'm still not sure how to solve my problem. How does one boot ubuntu from ubuntu?02:12
schnuffleneedlez: http://www.faqs.org/faqs/unix-faq/faq/part4/section-7.html02:12
schnuffleneedlez: another option is to configure sudo that the user can execute the script without password02:13

quentusrexI tried to change the /etc/bind/ directory to 664 from 64402:13
ascheelschnuffle: good idea, I forgot about being able to set up sudo to do that02:13
quentusrexand now bind can't start because it doesn't have sudo permissions02:13

trikingor are you saying use plop within the livecd session?02:14
elikIs there a Colin Law around?02:14
needlezthank you both schnuffle and ascheel: i figured it out, seems that it will run the script without need for password if ive already ran sudo once since ive logged on but if i dont run at least one sudo command then itll prompt for it, so i guess just a little hiccup right now02:15
trikingwedwo- I could burn a cd with plop, but I would prefer not to. The livecd has all the features I need just in case something else goes wrong02:15
ascheelneedlez: incorrect bud.  There's a timeout to the sudo password requirement.  It's only about 5 minutes or so by default.02:15
wedwo-triking, use plop to boot from usb (is what I'm saying)02:15
trikingwedwo- and when I installed plop on the internal disk (before I fucked it up), it couldn't detect the device02:16
trikingwedwo- :(02:16

rvnthis line is holding up boot for a long while at each boot on my aspire one d25002:16
needlezascheel: ahh ok,that explains why it works with a 10 value but not a 7200 value... i guess i can change sudo to not require a password02:16
trikingwedwo- so its not possible in a fully booted livecd to simply start up the boot process on another device!?02:17
ascheelneedlez: you the ONLY person that has access to that machine?02:17
trikingwedwo- because the livecd DEFINITELY detects the external disk and whatnot02:17
rvnin fact it's not booting at all right now02:17
rvnit's stuck at that.02:17
ascheelk, but be very very careful because that can be a HUGE security hole if anybody has access to it02:17
needlezascheel: umm, kk, maybe then i can just give the program before root permisson to run and then it wouldnt ask for password would it??02:18
needlezso it be sudo su then totem02:19
wedwo-triking, AFAIK if your BIOS cannot boot from the USB then it won't boot from the USB. Others may know of some way to coax it but I don't02:19
sigandersonwhere can I download the  2.6.38-rc1 kernel sources?02:19
ascheelneedlez: let's create a c wrapper like I showed you.02:19
rvntriking: using a floppy drive you can do it02:19
rvntriking: a usb one if you don't have one on hand02:19
rvnthough a machine that can't boot usb probably can't boot usb floppy02:19
xanguasiganderson: in the linux kernel webpage02:19
trikingwedwo- well it was my understanding that the bios simply scans the first sector of detected devices for the stage 1 bootloader02:20
ascheelneedlez: create a text file, name it 'takeitdown.c' and add this AND ONLY THIS as the contents of the file:  http://paste.ubuntu.com/555616/02:20
schnuffleneedlez: in /etc/sudoers add a line:  <user>           ALL = NOPASSWD: /path/to/binary02:20
ascheelneedlez: tell me when you've done that02:20
needlezascheel: kk i think ill try that02:20
trikingrvn its a laptop so floppy is not an option02:20
ascheelneedlez: trust me, it's crazy easy.02:20
rvntriking: well you can't say that like a laptop CANT have a floppy drive, i own many that do, but yes i see your point - CD then?02:20
sigandersonxangua, I don't see voices for that version02:20
rvntriking: there are floppy images out there explicitly to enable USB booting, particularly for puppy linux several years back, and you can make a CD with a floppy image boot02:21
trikingrvn cd is good. The livecd runs great on it02:21
elikIs there anyone with good knowledge of xorg and video drivers (and possibly ACPI) to help me resolve an issue where my laptop screen goes blank when I close the screen, but never comes back on02:21
rvntriking: if you can find that image and create a CD version of it you can boot to that and chainboot to the USB02:21
wedwo-triking, yes, correct, and if the USB device is not detected by BIOS then it won't see any boot sector02:21
rvnwedwo-: he was speaking with me.02:21
rvncan anybody tell my why 10.10 is failing to boot on my aspire one d250 at "speech-dispatcher disabled; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher [ OK ]", when the live version worked and allowed me to install it02:22
rvn(it said the same thing but eventually booted)02:22
ascheelrvn: see if that's the REAL cause by looking at 'dmesg' or perhaps syslog02:22
rvnascheel: i have no access to the machine..02:22
curtmackProblem: My keyboard and mouse freeze after a while. However, the rest of the system continues to run. Can anyone help?02:22
rvnascheel: it won't boot!02:22
rvnascheel: i have rebooted it in the hopes that it is a one time occurence..02:23
ascheelrvn: sorry then I won't be much help to you02:23
rvnascheel: it displayed a totally different (graphical) boot screen and worked...02:23
trikingrvn, wedwo- my question is since the livecd session already detects the device (and hence has access to the kernel image and initrd in /usb/boot) then how can I coax the LIVECD to boot02:23
rvnascheel: no idea.02:23
elikrvn: did you try to ctrl-c it? access a tty (ctrl-alt-f1)02:23
meshuggahwedwo, i succeed to boot on usb....02:23
trikingrvn, wedo- if you type initrd in bash its says 'command not found'02:23
rvntriking: do it from the grub prompt, don't go all the way into the livecd session - i don't know how to do this but i know it can be done - boot command, but it needs parameters to do what u want02:24
needlezascheel: kk done02:24
rvnelik: moot, i rebooted and it booted normally, i am unsure why it tried to boot strangely and failed.02:24
trikingrvn I can't use grub I don't think, not from the internal drive at least (its toast)02:24
rvntriking: all live linux devices use grub02:24
ascheelneedles.  ok, type this:  gcc takeitdown.c -o takeitdown02:24
ascheelneedlez: that will create the actual c program that does the shutdown02:24
rvntriking: so if you're booting via a live cd, do that but when it says grub: _ don't hit enter or let it time out02:24
elikrvn: gotta love those one time hickups02:25
rvn(well, not all use grub, but most)02:25
meshuggahcopy vmlinuz and initrd to internal hd /boot somewhere02:25
rvnelik: yes quite frustrating ;p02:25
meshuggahmodify grub02:25
wedwo-meshuggah, some (older) computers don't have the ability to boot from usb02:25
rvntriking: you could also use the live boot to install grub to the hard drive in the device02:25
trikingrvn well I'm sitting with a terminal open.. is it grub legacy or grub-pc?02:25
rvntriking: if you don't mean literally toast02:25
elikrvn: and it doesn't let you investigate the matter either. Never know when it will spring on you. Like, when you'll reboot the machine via ssh :)02:25
meshuggahgrub will do the trick02:25
meshuggahcopy vmlinuz and initrd02:25
rvntriking: you miss my point, a grub prompt, not grub itself02:25
trikingrvn that wouldn't work...02:25
needlezascheel: kk02:26
trikingrvn ok, whats the command to bring up the prompt?02:26
rvntriking: it's not a command02:26
rvntriking: when you start to boot the live cd you will see "boot:" prompt02:26
rvntriking: at that prompt you will type a boot command02:26
trikingrvn yes02:26
rvntriking: that will access the USB02:26
ascheelneedlez: type this.  The full thing:  sudo chown root: takeitdown && sudo chmod 4755 takeitdown02:26
meshuggahi boot from internal hd02:26
meshuggahwho boot after to usb02:26
rvntriking: trouble is i'm not terribly familiar with the options, so i don't know how to do it off the top of my ehad02:27
rvntriking: but it will be the "boot" command02:27
rvntriking: with some parameters02:27
rvntriking: if you look it up you should find what you need to know02:27
ascheelneedlez: that first sets the owner and group to 'root' then sets the permissions to SETUID (4) so it executes as though it's root, then 755 so ONLY root has write access to the program meaning nobody but root can modify it opening a security hole02:27
rvntriking: i must go, apologies.02:27
trikingrvn I don't know how to tell the boot: that it should use the usb device02:27
trikingahh fudge he left02:27

acoustyk_anyone know if windows is necessary to program in C# for the first time?  I've read about the mono project but apparently it's missing features03:07
KM0201jPuff: most of the time, ubuntu defaults to the wired connection03:07
amageedoes anyone know how i can tell ack-grep to ignore a particular file by name, even though that file has an extension that i generally want to look at?03:07

powehi , I trying to learn how glibc works and I modify random bits and recompiling it - I seem to be getting an unmodified version everytime  which is strange03:08
jPuffi was trying to find the range of the belkin i dontknow why it would be less03:08
KM0201jPuff: then disconnect the wired connect, and try to connect to your wireless03:08
KM0201jPuff: i dunno, i use mine all over the house, no problems03:09
poweI am patching the code and then I modify it - and then compiling it -- but I seem to get unmodified version - any suggestions ?03:09
jPuffthere are updates running03:09
rvnpowe: how are you testing it - are you sure you're testing the newly compiled copy?03:09
Gneaelik: might be worth pursuing, could be some undocumented features03:09
KM0201jPuff: ok, then i would wait03:09
kieppiehi guys. I'm trying to help someone with a windows network, who's experiencing periodic lock-up. they might be working, or simply open large files over the local LAN & their system would simply lock up (they describe it as "going off to la-la-land"). I've rebuild their Ubuntu server, running *only* SSH, Samba & Webmin, and *nothing* else. load it pretty good, so now I'm trying to find other possible causes or remedies (I've set aio r&w03:09
powervn: well I make install it - so I assume it is installed03:09
woodyjlwcan anyone explain to me what the difference is between ubuntu and xubuntu ?03:09
rvnpowe: should be - i'd investigate that though, sounds like the point of failure to me.03:10
elikGnea: well, on that previous post, I found something in the intel card video state03:10
KM0201woodyjlw: xubuntu runs xfce, instead of gnome(which ubuntu runs)03:10
rvnpowe: try testing the file in the end compile directory vs the one in the system03:10
rvnpowe: verify that they're the same03:10
woodyjlwKM0201, xfce is just different desktop environment like kde or something then?03:11
bencahillhey guys, what is a good app for showing stuff (like widgets) on the desktop?03:11

woodyjlwKM0201,  thanks.  maybe I will try it in vbox and see if I like the interface03:13
rvnpowe: then there's a problem in the compile process apparently, because your changes aren't propogating - that or they didn't make a functional difference.03:13

acoustyk_Has the "speed-up" script that was added a while back been implemented into ubuntu yet?03:16

rvnjPuff: there's a GUI method of doing it, but personally i do "sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list" and add them that way03:17
woodyjlwKM0201,  well ubuntu is very addictive and since I first tried 7.04 I cant seem to put it down and every time I think ubuntu cant get better a new one comes out and I have to try it out03:18
rvnis there a way to tell ubuntu to remember my password for my keyring? i don't need my passwords protected from myself03:18

rvnKM0201: i learned with SuSE (long before ubuntu existed) myself, but i'd think linux mint is a bit easier to nubs than ubuntu itself03:19
rvnKM0201: depending on whether you're using it as your daily system03:19
smwwoodyjlw, that is how I feel about ubuntu. And I have used many of them over a decade :-).03:19
rvnKM0201: while learning03:20
KM0201rvn: i'm not a huge fan of Mint, but i really fail to see hiow it's any easier than Ubuntu... it's more or less the same thing, just a different GUI.03:20
Aginorpurpzey: talk to me in private and I might be able to help you03:21
mamasboyubuntu has more help online03:21

rollmandidn't linux mint spun off ubuntu?03:21
woodyjlwKM0201,  yes I am still learning linux and got much to learn still and ubuntu has made it easy for people who dont know linux or are scared of it to experience linux with out sink or swim and I have come to learn that ubuntu is just the tip of the ice berg for how powerfull and fun the linux world can be03:21

rvnKM0201: if you're technical already it's not a big difference, but if you're a total noob, it can help03:22

bazhangghost_,  a kind of installable iso?03:25
acoustyk_is there a way to manually upgrade the kernel to 2.6.38?03:25

schwinn434I tried to boot my Ubuntu 10.10 machine today; wouldn't boot  until I booted using the previous  kernel version (grub menu option to use previous kernel) of linux04:21
econdudeawesomeHey all! Is there any benefit to installing (recompiling kernel? Not sure of the exact method) the most recent Nvidia driver as opposed to what is in the repos?04:21
schwinn434Should I just keep booting using the previous kernel?04:21
schwinn434it works okay - as far as I can tell04:21
jookschwinn434, what's the command for that? Looks like the problem I'm having too, and it might help04:21
ActionParsnip!info nvidia-current04:22
ubottunvidia-current (source: nvidia-graphics-drivers): NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library. In component restricted, is optional. Version 260.19.06-0ubuntu1 (maverick), package size 25690 kB, installed size 76364 kB (Only available for i386 amd64 lpia)04:22
schwinn434it was an option under grub04:22
KM0201jook: do you see your grub menu?... you should see your old kernels in the grub menu04:22
econdudeawesomeschwinn434: I had to do that for a real old computer of mine because they no longer supported the video chipset in the kernel for that specific computer. I can't remember the process I had to go through--but I complained enough that it got into another channel and to the developer.04:22
jookKM0201, no. Just that command prompt. I don't know what to do with it.04:22
myradlife_Aginor, shcherbak , please look at this: seems alarming to have ssh connections as ROOT http://pastebin.com/cjkwivJv04:22
schwinn434don't know the command line : Jook04:23
KM0201jook: i would continue w/ trying to reinstall grub204:23
ActionParsnipecondudeawesome: the difference in versioning is minimal04:23
jookok, no worries schwinn43404:23
econdudeawesomeschwinn434: moral of the story--someone here can direct you to the right channel for the developers, but I'm not sure what it is04:23
schwinn434my computer is a pentium 404:23
schwinn434not really that old, I don't think04:23

schwinn434econdudeawesome: thx for the tip04:23
econdudeawesomeschwinn434: mine was too. It's the video chipset, not the processor, that was the problem. Not sure of the specifics--you can check the logs04:23
ActionParsnipjook: http://www.ubuntu-inside.me/2009/06/howto-recover-grub2-after-windows.html04:23

rusty149alpha7: Are you trying to use a CD as apt source?04:58
qazeqazthank you :D04:58
dotblankqazeqaz, tar files are not like exe or other programs on windows.. tar file is analogous to a zip file.. sometimes they hold executable files and sometimes 9more often then not) they hold the source code and requires the program to be compiled04:58
Leifdotblank, Okay, I got it to work.  It looks like I needed to install pango, or aspell, or both.  Either way, thank you04:58
edbianqazeqaz, It is strongly recommended that you use programs in the repos first and other programs only if you must04:59
dotblankLeif, you didn't have pango installed??? yikes04:59

Leifdotblank, Anyway, thank you05:01
edbianqazeqaz, It allows you to keep the entire system, every app, up to date using just the update manager (provided you only install stuff from the repos) there are 20,000 packages in the repos05:01
jookrusty149, if you have a better idea, I'm open to it. My grub jsut freaked out when i installed updates, and now it doesnt load my OS list when I boot. I jsut get a grub> terminal05:02

qazeqazso how come a lot more applications are not in the repo?05:02
dotblankLeif, well you could alsways check to make sure you ahve the ubuntu-desktop metapackage installed05:02
MTecknologynoob_: can you check the restricted driver manager; I think it's somewhere around System -> Administration -> Restricted Drivers05:02
edbianqazeqaz, ? There are a ton of them in there05:02
dotblankLeif, if that package is gone then you removed a core component of ubuntu05:02
noob_i only see hardware drivers05:03
Leifdotblank, Mmm...good idea05:03
noob_no restricted05:03
qazeqazI know there are a lot in there just some games and stuff ive been looking at isnt there05:03
MTecknologynoob_: yup- that's it05:03
MTecknologynoob_: check it and see if it suggests any drivers05:03
Leifdotblank, Yup, it's gone, but at least it will only take me 25 MB to download it all, so I must have most of it back, thank you.  :)05:03
noob_says downloading package indexes failed, please check your network status.  Most drivers will not be avilable05:03
MTecknologylol... there's that05:04
Leifdotblank, And now it's downloaded.  :)05:04
MTecknologynoob_: what kind of system?05:04
edbianqazeqaz, not everything is in there.  As to why, probably because A it isn't open source or B the developers didn't submit it05:04
noob_you mean what kind of laptop? Acer05:04
MTecknologynoob_: more details?05:04
qazeqazHow do I make my text a different color in this and how did you guys learn so much about linux?!05:04

rusty149jook: Best to do a reboot of LiveCD first, don't need to use chroot. 1. Mount Linux as decribed, e.g sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt  2. sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda   3. sudo umount /mnt && sudo reboot05:05
dotblanknoob_, How are you psating your outputs05:05
edbianqazeqaz, It's probably just some setting in your irc client.  settings -> preferences -> colors if you're using xchat like I am05:05
qazeqaznice, hope I can pick up on it fast, is SUSE linux a lot different then ubuntu??05:05
jookrusty149, my linux partition is sdc2. How does that affect the commands?05:06

vdubbugman53i cant get my WUSB600Nv2  to play nice with 10.04 anybody help me figure out what is goin on.  i have the drivers and have tried to install05:08
dotblankCraigwell, its not the most safe thing tho05:08
rusty149jook: Yeah just from live cd. Don't know about your current environment after chrooting, so advise to reboot. Then when you are back in Linux after GRUB is fixed just run, sudo update-grub205:09
=== Kasjopaja23 is now known as Kasjopaja
Craigwelli can get the system to reboot when in the blank screen symptom by ctrl alt del,05:09
Craigwellbut ctrl alt f1 does nothing, nor f705:09
dotblankCraigwell, ok thats kinda odd05:09
jookgotcha. Thanks, rusty149 I will try that05:09
noob_alright well ill paste ifconfig -a then05:09
=== Kasjopaja is now known as Guest86096
dotblankCraigwell, I would reboot and check the kernel logs in /var/log05:10
Craigwellit was fine just before reinstalling 10.04 to replace a bad drive (i restored my /home dir which was on its own partiton)05:10
qazeqazedbian, I am really liking this a lot its kind of always what I wanted PS is my text coming in right?05:10
edbianqazeqaz, yeah, you're doing it right.  Linux is awesome :)05:10
Craigwellwhich log in particular, dotblank?05:10
edbianqazeqaz, any more questions?05:10
dotblankCraigwell, well there are lots.. perhaps it would be easier to use the log file viewer05:11

dotblankthats so odd05:12

jookgood luck noob_05:13
edbianchaospsychex, what qazeqaz said. He said linux users are far less angry than windows users.  I got a kick out of it :)05:13
edbianqazeqaz, :)05:13
AurielDoes Ubuntu support the Linksys WMP54G out of the box?05:13
dotblankedbian, I dunno.. I find some linux users to be very friendly05:13
linuxman410every time i try to make a usb image it says com32 image not found what is problem05:13
synackfinno, I'm not trying to bridge networks, share ips or anything - it's just a simple program that forward one tcp/udp port to another ip (like ssh port forwarding) but without encryption05:14
noob_out of a poll i heard linux users are far more angry05:14
noob_mac users tend to be more gay and artsy05:14

edbiandotblank, Me too!  I think it's funny that windows users are angry05:14

edbiandotblank, agreed :)05:14
MTecknologynoob_: anyway... this is the info you really need for getting help http://paste.ubuntu.com/555659/   I'm still looking for more info05:15
dotblanksynackfin, IPtables perhaps or UFW?05:15
MTecknologynoob_: can you do 'sudo modprobe atl1e' ?05:15
dotblankdid ubottu die05:15
ubottuUbuntu, like any other Linux distribution, has firewall capabilities built-in. The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.05:15
ubottuFor Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto05:15
qazeqazedbian haha yea lol all me, all linux users ive meet or talked to have been so happy to help me05:15
qazeqazI can completely switch to linux because I have MINECRAFT!!! hahaha05:15
dotblankwhatc it netsplit anytime soon05:16
chaospsychexLOL minecraft05:16
synackfindotblank: no it wasn't a firewall set up;  it was a ridiculously simple program, it was a userspace daemon (iptools/ufw require root)05:16
vanillaicequick q.. re acpid ... I added all the right stuff in /etc/acpi/events and the corresponding shell scripts in /etc/acpi but i can't get acpid to recognize them.. Nada... using 10.10 and there's no /var/log/acpid.. any ideas for troubleshooting?05:16

glassresistorim trying to add photos to my ipod touch without much success05:16
akagi82anyone know how to uninstall opensuse without messing up my windows boot05:16
MTecknologynoob_: can you do 'sudo modprobe atl1e' ?05:16
synackfindotblank: it just listened on a port, and sent all the packets to another ip - a simple program, but I can't remember the name and it's frustrating me05:16
glassresistorid like to be able to either add them with f-spot or use the ipods web browser directly05:16
dotblanksynackfin, you could do it with netcat or nc05:17
dotblanksynackfin, or some fancy bash scripting05:17
zetherooin trying to get Flash to work with FF 4 I seemed to have screwed something up badly ... trying to install flashplugin-installer I get this message:   Errors were encountered while processing:05:17

qazeqazchaospsychex, MINECRAFT is amazing hahaha05:17
glassresistorit seems like all f-spot can do is import them05:17
synackfindotblank: yeah but this program had already packaged that, it read a config file, and listened on those ports (netcat requires a separate instance running on each port)05:17
zetherooand then : E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)05:17
AurielDoes Ubuntu support the Linksys WMP54G out of the box?05:18
dotblankAuriel, whats the name of device called WMP is confusing for me and some05:18

dotblankPharanac, I wish05:21
edbianPharanac, It is not yet possible05:21
Pharanacme too, always looking for it05:21
qazeqazwhy do they block linux?05:22
ActionParsnipPharanac: not currently possible05:22
qazeqaznetflix i mean05:22
rwwqazeqaz: They use DRM stuff that isn't supported by Linux.05:22
MTecknologyPharanac: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=151054305:22
edbianqazeqaz, They're not blocking it.  They're just not taking the time to develop for it05:22
dotblankqazeqaz, its because of the windows play ready DRM and mono05:22
jookqazeqaz, its not blocking - its just lack of supporting05:22
NickyTRemember meeeeeee?05:22
qazeqazso so lame............... well night all!05:22

jPuffi need an ubuntu runnable mp3 player that can be set to repeatedly play a file05:24
ActionParsnipvdubbugman53: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZLEZRgWIOc   just use the driver for your adapter05:24
ActionParsnipjPuff: mplayer does that by default05:24
jPuffnm the default had an option for repeat :D05:24

NickyTwhat's the easiest way to mac change in ububtu?05:25
zetheroowhat's going on here?: adobe-flashplugin conflicts with flashplugin-installer05:25
ActionParsnipdotblank: indeed I am05:25
MTecknologyActionParsnip: 'most' ubuntu members on irc have an ubuntu/member hostmask so you can see by /whois <nick>05:25
ActionParsnipzetheroo: remove both so you have no flash plugins then install flashplugin-nonfree05:26
glassresistorso no ipod touch on linux advice in here, any ideas of another channel with more options?05:26
zetherooActionParsnip: I have already tried that05:26
zetherooActionParsnip: I cannot locate any "adobe-flashplugin"05:26
dotblankActionParsnip, I would like to apply for one soon. Did you get it based off your IRC contributions?05:26
NOBLEi have ubuntu 10.10 how can i install a printer lexmark x2695????05:27
ActionParsnipzetheroo: i believe thats the package when you go to the adobe site and grab the deb there, all you need is flashplugin-nonfree and it will work (or you can manually install or use the 64bit PPA if you use 64bit OS)05:27
zetherooNOBLE: is it plugged in and turned on?05:27
dotblankNOBLE, did you try using the printers utility?05:27
ActionParsnipdotblank: and my huge input on the launchpad answers05:27
NOBLEyes but it dosent work05:28
PharanacAnyone know of a Wii emulator for ubuntu?05:28
zetherooActionParsnip: I downloaded the 32bit package and forced the install ... and now it's all screwed05:28
ActionParsnipdotblank: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+topcontributors   check my karma ;)05:28
zetherooActionParsnip: I am running 64bit Ubuntu ... and forcing the install has worked in the past for me :P05:28
ActionParsnipzetheroo: you shouldn't force packages dude05:29
zetherooActionParsnip: yeah I suppose05:29
dotblankActionParsnip, dang...05:29
ActionParsnipzetheroo: theres a 64bit PPA05:29
zetherooActionParsnip: where? ... I have been searching for one05:29
MTecknologyActionParsnip: I remember way back when I was in that list :P05:29
dotblankActionParsnip, now I feel like I havn't done nearly enough to apply05:29
NickyTDo you guys know anything about macchanger in Ubuntu?05:29
NOBLEy download the driver from lexmark page and it say its obsolete05:29
ActionParsnipzetheroo: http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2010/09/install-64bit-flash-from-a-ppa-or-deb/05:30
ActionParsnipNOBLE: if it makes the printer work, who cares05:30
NOBLEbut the problem is it dosen work thats the problem05:30
NickyTDoes anyone know about mac changing?05:30
Airglowhi, someone can tell me the last packages added to ubuntu 10.10 to update?05:31
NOBLEbecause is obsolete05:31
myradlife_What is the meaning of this line in my /var/log/auth.log ? Jan 18 15:37:20 SlackServer sshd[23116]: reverse mapping checking getaddrinfo for pcp022204pcs.dhcp.calpoly.edu [] failed - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!05:31
dotblankNOBLE, have you tried checking the open printing database for your printer05:31
ActionParsnipMTecknology: i'd be #1 but martinP contributes a lot to a space program (if i remember right) and he gets karma from that. He even admits it feels like cheating :D05:31
edbianAirglow, Can you re-phrase that?05:31
ActionParsnipNOBLE: you're missing the point05:31
Airglowok edbian , let me do it better05:31
greppymyradlife_: it means that it could not confirm that the forward and reverse dns matched.05:31
zetherooActionParsnip: ok thanks ... I downloaded the .deb and tried to install it ... but probably due to something I messed up it won't install :(05:32
edbianmyradlife_, Did you ssh into your machine from calpoly.edu ?05:32
NOBLEyes i open it and is not in the data base some one know if with an other drive can work?05:32
myradlife_edbian, yes I did05:32
ActionParsnipzetheroo: if your packages aren't square then you should fix that first05:32
MTecknologyActionParsnip: Yup, he even had a bug open about that once.05:32
edbianmyradlife_, Then it's probably safe (and was just you)05:32
ActionParsnipMTecknology: HA, dude that's hilarious05:32
zetherooActionParsnip: is there a way to fix broken packages or whatever is messed up?05:33
zetherooActionParsnip: I tried looking around in Synaptic but could not locate any repairing feature05:33
myradlife_greppy, edbian I had a similar line, let me show you from TEXAS earlier today05:33
ActionParsnipzetheroo: can you give a pastebin of: sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get --reinstall install nano      thanks05:33
MTecknologyActionParsnip: not only that- but they felt it was accurate and karma calculations were adjusted otherwise he'd be many miles ahead05:34
MTecknologyActionParsnip: there was something else he was doing that gave waaay too much to your karma05:34
ActionParsnipMTecknology: little bit, as long as folks enjoy the OS then I'm happy. Karma imho just helps with membership applications05:34
edbianmyradlife_, forward DNS lookup means finding the IP address of a domain name, reverse DNS means looking up the domain name of an IP address.  Sometimes people spoof (which means write some nonsense IP in the packet headers) so that they can try to log into your machine without you knowing where it really came from.  This would result in a mis-matching forward / reverse dns05:34
zetherooActionParsnip: ok well that installed nano without a hitch05:34
edbianmyradlife_, But since you have logged in from that domain I find it very unlikely someone is spoofing.  That would mean they randomly choose an address (out of billions) that coincidentally you are actually using05:35
zetherooActionParsnip: did you still want a pastebin of that even though there were no issues?05:35
ActionParsnipzetheroo: if the 3 commands went flawlessly then the packages are ok. You should remove adobe-flashplugin and flashplugin-* so you have no flash then use the deb or ppa from the omgubuntu link05:35
edbianmyradlife_, Oh, no05:35
ActionParsnipzetheroo: if all is well then the paste isn't necessary :)05:35
edbianmyradlife_, Now that I see this file someone is definitely trying to guess user names and passwords for your ssh server.  See the invalid user root stuff all over?05:36
w1n5ton0What archive format has the best time/compression ratio?05:36
myradlife_edbian, yes i do05:36
edbianmyradlife_, yeah someone is trying to log in as root and guess the password05:36
chris05Hey, I'm trying to install ubuntu off of my usb, but everytime I try to advance past the second window it crashes telling me that the parted server is unresponsive or something :x05:36
myradlife_edbian, so this happened today around 5 a.m.05:36
MTecknologyActionParsnip: does it really even help with that; I think they're 'supposed to' look at what contributed to that karma more than the number (i think they do a pretty good job of that)  I used to think it was fun when I had a whole lot; but now I contribute in other areas that don't add to karma much and it's less exciting to watch it chance05:36
zetherooActionParsnip: when trying to remove adobe-flashplugin I get :  Virtual packages like 'adobe-flashplugin' can't be removed05:36
myradlife_I got on my computer at 8:00 p.m., and it had a ton of ssh connections open and the network traffic was huge on upload05:37
edbianmyradlife_, eventually they will get the password.  It might take them 75 years but they will get it.  Also many other people will start attacking too.  It's very annoying.  They're called script kiddies because they know how to run this silly script that brute forces ssh servers but they don't know much of anything else presumably05:37
edbianmyradlife_, Did someone actually get it?  That's really bad05:37
dotblankIve never really cared about karma.. I did get some for uploading packages to my ppa and filing a bug.. thats about it05:37
edbianmyradlife_, According to the file the root account is locked on ssh so they didn't log in as root.05:38
myradlife_edbian, I'm trying to find out, I think this might tell you something  http://pastebin.com/cjkwivJv05:38
edbianmyradlife_, well, that looks like a tcp dump?  I'm not familiar enough with it but it def seems that root is establishing a connection.05:39
edbianmyradlife_, However if they  actually logged in as root (or at all) over ssh you'd see it in /var/log/auth.log and it's not in there from what I can see05:39

edbianmyradlife_, cat /var/log/auth.log | grep Accepted05:41

myradlife_edbian, so here's something that's complicating my search: I have two computers that I have cronjobs to rsync into this server. One is at calpoly.edu and one is my laptop that's usually on the same LAN. I have them set (stupidly) to login every minute.05:44
Airglowedbian can you tell me which are the last packages of security updates added to ubuntu 10.10 ?05:45

theTrav_hey, I think ssh is using the proxy-server I've set up in ubuntu.  Is there a way for me to tell it to not use a proxy, without messing up the proxy config I've got for all my other apps?05:45
myradlife_edbian, I'm not sure what to do, because I have a ton of accepted logins from an IP that seems to be the calpoly.edu ip, but how do i know if that's my campus computer logging in for rsync or an attack?05:46

Cpt_Zyphi had to install the current setup via ubuntu walkthroughs and my usb drive cuz it was installed on a work network .. now that im home should i do something different?05:46
edbianAirglow, just run sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade and you'll be up to date my friend05:47
ActionParsnipzetheroo: weird, i'd just force install /var/cache/apt/archives/flashplugin64-installer_10.3.162.29-0ubuntu0~sevenmachines2_amd64.deb   then05:47
edbianmyradlife_, The user05:47

edbianmyradlife_, Do any of the Accepteds not have your username in them?05:47
zetheroo ActionParsnip: ok that worked05:48
myradlife_edbian, no they all have my username none say root05:48
zetheroo ActionParsnip: is there a way to "test" it?05:48
edbianmyradlife_, then you're good my friend.  Nobody has logged in.05:48
ActionParsnipzetheroo: close all browsers and then visit a page like http://www.rathergood.com/blode205:48
edbianmyradlife_, Might want to turn them off for a bit to be extra sure though.  However it is clear that someone (unsuccessfully) is trying to log into your machine via ssh05:49
edbianmyradlife_, Not a surprise, I have the same problem with my ssh server05:49

vanc_hi guys , i just got a clevo X7200 and i installed ubuntu 10.04 and the sound doesnt work, i followed the howto on ubuntu support ended up installing the latest version of alsa still nothing. then i tried installing 10.10 just incase that would make it work nothing i cant think what else to do here ....any ideas ? its an HDA intel card but it does show 2 versions of it one with an nvida which i think is the HDMI sound out05:49
dotblankvanc_, Have you tried using speaker-test05:50
myradlife_edbian, GOOD! Is there an explanation for why my computer was showing upstream network activity of ~100KB/s (constant) before I stopped SSH?05:50
vanc_yes no sound comes out05:50
edbianmyradlife_, I have no idea about that05:50
dotblankvanc_, can you verify the device is not muted in alsa-mixer05:50
myradlife_edbian, as soon as i stopped SSH and then ended all my SSH processes, the network activity stopped05:51
vanc_yes unmuted and tried to select both devices as out put05:51
edbianmyradlife_, well perhaps it was just the ssh server responding to these log in requests05:51
ActionParsnipzetheroo: ok then run: mkdir ~/.mozilla/plugins05:51
zetheroo ActionParsnip: shoot ... that was wierd ... I closed and reopened FF and now I am back at using FF3.6 :P05:52
zetheroo ActionParsnip: FF4 is gone - loll05:52
myradlife_edbian, okay. is there anything I should do to prevent this or add security?05:52
ActionParsnipzetheroo: then run: sudo find -iname "flashplugin.so"    then copy the file to ~/.mozilla/plugins05:52
edbianmyradlife_, thought you'd never ask!  check this out: http://denyhosts.sourceforge.net/05:53
ActionParsnipzetheroo: should do it, i've not used firefox in many moons05:53
zetherooActionParsnip: ok thanks ... you a Opera user?05:53
edbianmyradlife_, Also, you could but your ssh server on a different port (e.g. 23, or 2222)05:53
dotblankvanc_, can you verify your speakers are plugged in (if you are on the desktop)05:53

ksinkarq_a_z_steve: got it09:14
Zaca12is that ok?09:14
dagb_hi. I am trying to figure out how to change the default brightness setting on my laptop. power manager indicates it should be at 100% when on AC, but it clearly isn't.09:14
Zaca12or should i have formatted the drive to empty status before running dd to give it a file system?09:15
rumpe1Zaca12, yes ... dd copies everything, no matter what...09:15
q_a_z_steveZaca12 assuming the copy went okay, the drives should now be identical09:15
Zaca12oh thanks a lot! was just making sure09:15
rumpe1Zaca12, formatted partitions are also just bits on the disk... they will be overwritten by dd09:15

Zaca12im running dd with a blocksize of 32768k and the drives are both 1.5TB each, how long could we guess this should usually take?09:16

frogzoomister_m: sudo make uninstall ?09:16
rumpe1Zaca12, hmm... one hour? two? ... depends, how fast the connection is09:16
q_a_z_steveZaca12 I want to say smaller bs is usually safer, and as for time I doubt we know from experience. It will be done when it says it's done09:16
mister_mfrogzoo, still doesn;t work09:17
hsa2i can't assign any command or something to super + s key, whenever i press, logout window popups from indicator09:17
frogzoomister_m: then you need to read the makefile, and manually delete everything installed09:17
q_a_z_steveDiverdude that would be a mac emulator09:17
Zaca12ahha i got told that that's kind of like a ballpark bs and i hope that its not TOO large09:17
dgxHey all, a friend of mine has his own page hosted on ubuntu server. And he has some kind of hidden adds, when you enter the page. Can you give me some advice on how to fix this ?09:17

Diverdudeq_a_z_steve, yeah, which one is good?09:17
q_a_z_steveDiverdude or wait, you said virtual machine? just sudo apt-get install virtualbox09:17

ne2kDiverdude: as far as I know Apple make it very difficult to install their OS on anything that is not genuine Apple hardware. I have heard of it being done, but I believe it's hard09:24
ne2kDiverdude: and not to mention in breach of their license terms09:25
ne2kDiverdude: but, that said, if you can do it on non-Apple real hardware, there's no reason why you can't do it on non-Apple virtual hardware, such as Virtualbox09:25
dmexne2k: I have osx installed in virtulbox ;)09:25
ne2kdmex: how do you do it?09:26
q_a_z_stevene2k it's not a distinction at all, it's whineware's (no pun intended) way of trying to say I'm better than that. A way of filling in the gaps where Windows expects a program. Look at www.codeweavers.org some time, those .dlls are IDENTICAL and just copied over and over to their needed names and directories.09:26
q_a_z_steve!who | dgx09:26
ubottudgx: 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 :)09:26
dmexne2k: not legally, you have to get an iso from a torrent site.09:26
q_a_z_stevene2k I've done it before. dmex there's a whole guide on which to get, and which is easiest not to BORK09:27
ne2kq_a_z_steve: it is a distinction. I remember the early days of WINE when the developers made pains to say that it was not an emulator, because an emulator has a specific technical definition in computer science, and WINE does not meet that definition.09:27
dgxq_a_z_steve: I see, thanks.09:27
frogzoomister_m: there'll be Makefiles in each of the PDIR directories that do the install..09:27
sam-_-also afaik newer versions of osx don't work with bios just efi09:27
q_a_z_stevene2k right, it supercedes that, but at what cost really? Just because I call a few pointers c:\Program Files\ and junk doesn't really add up to anything but a work around in my book. I'm not saying I have any better idea, but it's just sad that MSFT never did learn how to play with the other kids.09:29
mister_mfrogzoo, okay/ I didn't think of that09:29
q_a_z_stevesam-_- I've run Tiger in a VM09:29
mister_mfrogzoo, is there a way I can avoid this happening in the future? because this is absolutely ridiculous09:29

q_a_z_stevetapout what torrent client?10:06
ksinkarI also dont understand the logic behind DASH except that it speeds up the booting process10:06
C3Dsooo question i know you can connect to other computers with lan cards but could you also do the same if you have usb wireless cards and no wireless router?10:06
q_a_z_stevetapout what changed between the last time this worked, and now?10:06
ksinkarC3D: you could try p2p popularly known as adhoc networks10:07
tapoutbefore two weeks is working fine d/u10:07
q_a_z_steveC3D seems like that would be cross network, i.e. via IP10:07
Linttecnocally I can remove package from STATUS file, but that look like a hack, can there e cleaner way?10:07
llutzksinkar: dash is  "lighter" than bash and POSIX-conform shell . so it gets used more and more10:07
tapoutand no firewall use for internet10:07
q_a_z_stevetapout WHAT has changed?10:07
ksinkarllutz: but then scripts dont run on it10:07
ksinkarmajority of scripts are written for bash10:07
C3Dcool thanks will look into it10:07
llutzksinkar: they only won't if you use bashisms10:07
tapouti am abling now to download the torrent file but without uploading10:08
llutzksinkar: and of course, they lack a correct shebang10:08
sam-_-tapout: could be a NAT problem.10:08
ndeehow can I set a cronjob so that it never gets logged? I tried following * * * * * /bin/php /myscript.php > /dev/null 2>&1 but it still shows up in the log :/10:08
Linttorrent can seed even behind NAT10:08
q_a_z_steveLint that didn't make sense10:08

tapoutno NAT , i am using usb modem10:08
Lintksinkar, "#!"10:08

Lintq_a_z_steve, what didn't?10:09
q_a_z_stevetapout could be an ISP problem10:09

s3r3n1t7Lint03, apt's job is to take care of all the packages of your system, not just a few selected. It's not trained to "just" ignore packages that have no correlation with current operation.11:17

vario1lol thank's bazhang11:20
s3r3n1t7vario1, short answer is, you can't.11:20
Lint03q_a_z_steve, it's small utility package which requires a newer version of a certain library11:20

s3r3n1t7Lint03, and which library does it require and which one do you have, and why can't you upgrade to that library (thereby solving your issue)?11:22

q_a_z_steveLint03 yes, actually. That justifies everything we've been telling you. hunspell is a spellchecker, not just some obscure item, it could be spell checking everything you ever type in console or somewhere... devel package could be removed and just use the standard???11:22

rvni am concerned that my netbook isn't running at full CPU speed - if i type cat /proc/cpuinfo it says the cpu is running at 1ghz, but it's a 1.66ghz cpu. I am running unity on 10.10, so i can't add the clock scaler to the panel, as there's no panel.13:07
s3r3n1t7rvn, you're probably right, it won't be runnign at full speed unless it's needed. It's called CPU scaling, it conserves battery by scaling it down when it can.13:07
sam-_-gasull: then you have to delete the gnome screensaver configs by hand13:07
rvns3r3n1t7: yes but how do i know if it's even scaling up when it IS needed?13:07
gasullsam-_-: where are they?13:07
pozicgdm tells me a session for a certain user is already active with a green marking. How do I simply continue that session?13:07
sam-_-gasull: look in .gnome2/ .gconf/13:07
etidhoris there desktop edition of ai...-hg??13:08
s3r3n1t7rvn, do something heavy and check again? You can use "watch cat /proc/cpuinfo" to monitor it13:08
etidhoris there desktop edition of ai...-ng??13:08
AbhiJitwhat is the reverse of this command to remove ppa? sudo add-apt-repository13:08
s3r3n1t7etidhor, would help if you didn't obscure what you're looking for.13:08
Dr_WillisAbhiJit:  theres a ppapurge command somewhere.13:08
rvns3r3n1t7: lol, turns out "watch" was enough to make it jump up all by itself... thanks tho, confirmed that it does clock up!13:08
sagaciRemove it from your sources.list13:08
AbhiJitDr_Willis, ok13:09
sagaciOr in software sources if you're running a gui13:09
rvni don't suppose there's a way to lock the CPU at full speed when on AC?13:09
etidhor   ok but what is obscure13:09
s3r3n1t7rvn, i wouldn't recommend doing so. It'll always go up to full speed when it goes above a threshold (80% or something), and it won't become as hot when it's not needed.13:10
AbhiJitDr_Willis, will it be fine if i just erase that ppa from sources.list?13:10
sam-_-rvn: there is.13:10
s3r3n1t7AbhiJit, yes, just update right after13:10
AbhiJits3r3n1t7, Dr_Willis sagaci thank you13:10
rvns3r3n1t7: it's well known that in gaming scenarios that is a cause of lag, and i am trying to squeeze all of the performance out of it to run a game that the device barely runs13:10
rvnsam-_-: and what might that be13:10
sam-_-rvn: like s3r3n1t7 said it's a bad idea to do it.13:11
gasullsam-_-: I deleted ~/.gconf/apps/gnome-screensaver/ and still it doesn't find the ~/Pictures folder13:11
etidhors3r3nlt7   ok but what is obscure13:11
s3r3n1t7rvn, i game as well, as long as the game keeps the average cpu load above 80% it won't scale down. That's something I dare place a bet on.13:11
s3r3n1t7etidhor, swap out letters with periods or other symbols13:11
sam-_-gasull: it may have stored configs somewhere else as well13:11
etidhors3r3nlt7 say what to do13:12
rvns3r3n1t7: this is true, and i expect it would, but who knows.. i know that on my core 2 duo desktop of years past, oblivion would get "slow" enough to cause speedstep to clock down and up again, making the game lag horribly until I disabled speedstep.13:12
s3r3n1t7rvn, that sounds like a speedstep issue, not an oblivion issue13:12
bazhangetidhor, cracking passwords is not supported. #aircrack-ng is where you should ask about that program13:12
gasullsam-_-: where?  I've been googling and trying to find this.  No luck.13:12
rvns3r3n1t7: yes, im aware of that, but my concern is that my netbook might have the same scaling issue - or does ubuntu and not the BIOS control the scaling?13:12
sam-_-rvn: also it sounds like a temperature issue13:12
etidhori have aircrack-ng but how to use it i don know13:13
s3r3n1t7rvn, oblivion always would use up max cpu, thus causing it to run at max speed. Ubuntu controls the scaling I think, although I'm not sure where.13:13
sam-_-gasull: i don't know since i don't use gnome screensaver13:13
Picigasull: You can install the xscreensaver package and use xscreensaver-demo to change your screensaver preferences, I believe  one of the tabs at the top is the place where you can find the path preferences.  Make sure that you do not stop the gnome-screensaver daemon or start the xscreensaver one when it prompts you.13:13
bazhangetidhor, then join the channel I suggested13:13
