FireblastoDoes ubuntu not play .avi files very well?00:53
KM0201Fireblasto: sure it does00:53

VarcNoeltorious: I see, if i put dpkg-query -L package How can i know what is the program to run? Are .exe like Windows?00:55
VCoolioVarc: executables are in /usr/bin or sometimes /usr/local/bin00:55
VarcVCoolio: But, if i have it in a package00:56
NoeltoriousVarc: are you wanting to install a package you dl'd or that is in the repositories?00:57
PiciVarc: Normally I do dpkg -L packagename | grep bin   to check what executables the package came with00:58
jca1981cavalierprime,yes it is checked, and ive pressed the remember curently running apps00:58
VCoolioVarc: a package is a combi of stuff; executables go to /usr/bin, configs to /etc, libs to /usr/lib and the rest to /usr/share/something00:58
VCooliomore or less00:58
VarcNoeltorious: Look, If i download a program, and i wanna install it from the terminal i write sudo apt-get intall application and the PackAge don't have the name of the program how can i find the executable?00:59
PudabudigadaVarc: Just type it's name into the terminal00:59
cavalierprimejca1981:  strange...you got all the latest greatest updates?  other than that i am outta ideas for now01:00
NoeltoriousVarc: okay i think im finally there with you, this is a .deb file youve downloaded?01:00
KM0201well if he used apt-get, then it's presumably in the repos01:00
VarcPici: thanks this work!..01:00
jca1981cavalierprime,can we check somthing in some of the etc/ config files?01:00
VarcI know pudabidigada but if i don't know the name01:00
VarcOr the name is not correct01:00
jca1981cavalierprime,mebe somthing is wrong there01:00
VarcNoeltorious: No, is just a example i don't have problems with software now01:01
VarcI wanna know more about how to install programs01:01
VarcJust that01:01
cavalierprimejca1981: possible, but have to research it a bit01:02
VCoolioVarc: you don't install downloaded stuff with apt-get, you do 'apt-get install blah' and it will download and install blah; if you download a deb you do 'sudo dpkg -i file.deb' and with a .tar.gz it's complex01:02
VarcWhat!? I can download and install with the terminal?01:03
=== danny_ is now known as DSevigny
KM0201Varc: well yeah.01:03
VarcHmmm, Let me try !01:03
VCoolioVarc: that's the whole idea, let apt-get find it all, don't download first from some obscure website01:03
KM0201Varc: if your'e a newb, use the GUI tools(little easier)... system/admin/synaptic... or applications/software center01:03

maltonVCoolio: it says that the install failed01:08
VarcThanks rww and KM0201 xD01:09
VCooliomalton: put in .fonts and then 'fc-cache -rv' or logout and back in; but how did you install and why did it fail? error message?01:10
VarcWell, i try and this work. I will to study more the Linux command's. Thansk a lot guys01:11
maltonVCoolio: when i clicked on the font in the .fonts folder (that i made) it opened a window with a preview of the font and a <install font> button on the bottom. when i clicked the button it greyed out and the text on the button changed to "font failed"01:12
VCooliomalton: just open openoffice or something and see if you can use the font01:12
jca1981cavalierprime,adding auto eth solved it :)01:13

nataliehello my friend installed ubuntu for me but it looks like windows vista01:24
natalieis there anyway to change the theme?01:24
Pudabudigadanatalie, What?01:24
ThOr101I don't want to boot the ISO, I want to boot the OS, natively from the drive.01:24
xanguanatalie: system>prefs>appearence01:24
nataliemy friend was supposed to change my computer from xp to ubuntu because linux cant get viruss01:24
NixGeeknatalie: right click on the desktop and click change desktop backgound and then choose the theme tab01:25
LostPenguinMS not has free virus protection lol01:25

natalieNixGeek: no he said it was only a theme01:26

nataliexangua: i don't think so01:27
ThOr101So let me ask the question this way...  When someone boots a live version of ubuntu, an icon on the desktop will allow you to install to the hard drive.  What is the name of that application?01:27
mellinand really works hard at letting a virus hit it. I don't know the new count but there are only a handful of viruses that *could* affect linux in the wild01:27
natalieit's like $5001:27
ThOr101Pudabudigada: Because it wasn't windows, and windows is what they were used to01:27
nerdy_kidnatalie: nope, ubuntu is free01:27
Pudabudigadanatalie, You got ripped01:27
natalietrust me my friend is a computer genius i think he would know01:27
xanguaThOr101: are you refering to wubi¿¿ i don't like it01:27
nerdy_kidnatalie: if you payed for it, you got scammed01:27
NixGeeknatalie: 1, your friend can lie 2, ubunut is free 3, linux can get viruses, it's just noone targets linux, windows is a much easier and more succeptable target with many more users01:27
mellinActually OpenSource...but lets not split hairs here.01:28
Pudabudigadanatalie, I think he may have installed windows01:28
ThOr101xangua: Nope.  Boot a live version of Ubuntu (so you are using it) and on the desktop is an icon to "Install 10.10"01:28

Varcbut cant do nothing01:29
nerdy_kidVarc: Linux _can_ get viruses if you install untrusted software.01:29
PudabudigadaVarc in practicality, you'll probably never see one.01:29
ThOr101Technically, it is more likely that Linux/Ubuntu would get a trojan than a virus, but really, we're just splitting rabits at this point.01:29
KM0201Pudabudigada: exactly01:29
PudabudigadaThOr101, You'd better eat them!01:29

WXZowner: system > administration > synaptic package manager01:47
mellinowner: I too have a hp 3 in one printer. Once hplip was installed and I went to add the printer after a short pause it found the printer on my network. I realize you may have it connected directly however, but it should work almost exactly the same01:47
WXZowner: then quick search hplip and check it off, then click the "apply" button (3rd button from the left)01:48
hrobertsIf I launch grub and while at the menu I select "c" and manually linux the vmlinuz-2.6.35-24 kernal and then I initrd the file, I can press esc and select the kernel and it loads everytime.  but I have to do this everytime the server reboots or it will not load01:48

hrobertsPudabudigada: what is the easiest way to reinstall grub?01:53
hrobertsrazieliyo: I have reloaded this machine 6 times now01:54
razieliyohroberts, I think it is01:54
quattlewinstone: It's a function of memory, not disk size.  How much memory do you have?01:54
jribDatz: but if there are folders within folders, possibly overlapping, then maybe you want to use rsync or cp01:54
Datzjrib: if I do "mv old/ new/"  and there are folders multiple folders of files in old/ and new/ if will merge them?01:54
ownerWXZ: got the hplip done now just got to check if the printer will load. Thanks a bunch!01:54
jribDatz: no, mv will not merge anything01:54
Datzjrib: so it is possible with cp?01:54
razieliyohroberts, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2#Reinstalling%20GRUB%20201:54
jribDatz: sure01:54
razieliyohroberts, --recheck worked for me when I had problems with grub201:55
LewocoI right-clicked a .iso and popped a CD-R in my burner, but "Write to Disc" states "No disc available, Please replace the disc with a supported CD or DVD." What could be wrong?01:55
hrobertsthanks Ill try reinstalling01:55
Datzjrib: so just "cp old/ new/"01:55
quattlegdm doesn't start when I boot.  Any ideas?01:55
jribDatz: that's probably not what you want to do...01:55
jribDatz: that would give you new/old/01:56
Datzcp /old/* new/01:56
Datzidk :p01:56
FloodBot2Datz: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.01:56
quattlelewoco:  Are you sure the drive is a burner, are you sure the medium wasn't already burned?01:56
jribDatz: except cp only operates on files01:56
Datzcp -R ?01:56
moses_so any tools to make ubuntu skim down the effects so the graphics card will go faster?01:56
subminuentischcp -r old new01:57
jribDatz: sure, I usually just use -a01:57
Datzok, I'll look into those options, thanks01:57
pickleddoes anyone know how to test if a device is mounted? (for the purposes of a bash script).. ?01:57
Lewocoquattle, 100% sure on both counts. I burnt a CD with the burner half an hour ago using media from the same reel as the current disc in the drive.01:57
Pudabudigadamoses_, You can use the display customisation options to turn off effects, or try a lighter environment such as xfce01:57
jribDatz: and you should probably use -i in case there happen to be files that do have the same name01:57
jribpickled: try #bash01:58
HilarieJust because one disk worked doesn't mean they are all good01:58
quattlelewoco: do you have two drives (maybe it's looking at the other one?)01:58
Lewocoquattle, Only 1 CD drive01:58
quattlelewoco, bad CD?01:59
Lewocoquattle, I tried a second CD, no difference.01:59
moses_Pudabudigada, is that a WM?02:00
DEAD_BEEFmoses_, Window manager?02:00
quattlelewoco: there is space to write on the HDD (not that it should need it if you're burning an ISO)02:00
DEAD_BEEFmoses_, nvm02:00
=== roaming is now known as INFURNO
DEAD_BEEFmoses_, I've had a long week02:01
themusicgod1i have a bazillion popups with "Out of Space" and a pictur eof the ubuntu cloud02:01
themusicgod1on upgrade to 10.1002:01
Lewocoquattle, hmm, I selected Brasero from the right-click menu instead of "Write to Disc...". The dialog that popped up looked the same, except that it now recognises the CD-R.02:01
themusicgod1they keep opening and closing02:01
themusicgod1how do i stop that02:01
Pudabudigadamoses_,  WM?02:01
Lewocoquattle, Probably just a bug.02:01
quattlelewoco:  I like brasero, what were you using before?02:01
w1n5ton0is there a way to ghost an entire filesystem to an external drive?02:01
themusicgod1dd ?02:02
jribw1n5ton0: partimage02:02
Datzjrib: doesn't seem to be working02:02
Lewocoquattle, Like I said, I selected "Write to Disc..." but the resulting dialog looked identical to brasero so I think it's just another right-click menu option that eventually runs the same software.02:02
jribDatz: pastebin commands and output that show that02:02
* Datz uses verbose option 02:02
quattlelewoco: ok, whatever works!02:03
momozhi all.. any apache experts out there? can't figure out how to get utf-8 issues fixed... apparently my server is sending xml encoded at utf-8 but server says US-ASCII :our feed appears to be encoded as "UTF-8", but your server is reporting "US-ASCII"02:03
gk__oin #ltsp02:03
w1n5ton0No ext4 support02:03
hrobertsI did sudo grub-update and now it loaded without an issue02:04
quattlew1n5ton0: what do you mean by "ghost"... you can copy the whole file hierarcy locally or remotely with rsync.02:05
hrobertsthanks guys for your help02:05
w1n5ton0say I just said cp / /dev/sdb02:05
Pudabudigadahroberts, I've been trying to find that command for ages!02:05
DEAD_BEEFquattle, what about using dd02:05
jribw1n5ton0: but partimage docs then point you to fsarchiver :)02:05
hrobertsPudabudigada: the correct command is sudo update-grub02:06
quattlew1n5ston0:  you would have to partition /dev/sdb, make a file system there, and then mount it somewhere, then cp would work. System/Administration/Disk Utility should guid you through it.02:06
Pudabudigadahroberts, I kept forgetting the hyphen02:06
w1n5ton0Screw it02:07
w1n5ton0I'll just back up my home folder and copy it to a fresh install02:07
Datzjrib: I should probably do something like: cp -ai folder1/* folder2/  , to indicate copying the contents of folder1, and not the folder itself, correct?02:07
quattleDEAD_BEEF: sure dd would make a copy, but what does he want to do with it?  With dd, he needs a destination of exactly the same size to place the file system there.02:07
jribDatz: yes02:07

KM0201(what i said above works w/ xchat)04:01
skyboundbashed: from memory i would guess that diff can't do that, there might be some stuff to do that, but you have to define the problem a bit better. the same lines at the same offsets in the file, longish parts (paragraphs) that are in both files (no matter where in the files)...? out of curiosity: what exactly are you trying to do?04:01

julia_23So there is no universal way to accomplish this?04:30
julia_23@hilarie ^04:30
czardozthen you can make a bootaable pendrive04:30
KeyLimePiasmalik: My machine kept these???? Wow! I never knew about this.  It is my hope that I can roll back to a flashplayer that is not insane04:31
julia_23czardoz: will this pendrive work on every computer I plug it into?04:31
czardozsystem>preferences>startup disk creator04:31
czardozyes it will04:31
hilarie_@julia_23 *most* computers at least04:31
czardoz^ thats more correct04:31
julia_23okay, most is better than some04:31
jay_why_bee@Julia_23, I think you need to create a ubuntu booting USB drive, they see how far that takes you.04:31
czardozbut you need the ISO04:31
jay_why_bee@julia_23 it may not detect all hardware on all systems, but it is really good for an OS that will run from a Live CD or USB drive.04:32
czardozwill work for most of your pusrposes04:33
julia_23wonderful, being it usb, then it will save anything I download and install, correct?04:33
czardozprovided you have space04:33
julia_23then I can fairly easily clone the USB thumb drive to other sticks?04:33
uRock I use Ubuntu on my thumby and love it04:33
jay_why_bee@julia_23 plus I can't imagine how slow a system will be that will boot its HOST oS and its GUEST OS from 1 USB flash device.04:33
uRock no prblems saving nor installing programs and files04:34
julia_23would there be a better choice than Ubuntu? I don't want to complicate things04:34
jay_why_bee@julia_23 :  Pretty sure Ubuntu has a USB drive creating app.04:34
czardoznimblex is good too04:34
julia_23that has access to the same sofware center, firefox, gwibber, pidgin..etc04:34

Loshkikthomas_vh_: I think it should be safe. Since the symbolic link really just contains text, from inside the jail it should be as though you typed 'cd link-destination' i.e. it won't necessarily put you in the directory you want05:05

ZykoticK9jay_why_bee, i typically don't offer advice on Windows compatibility issues - but I think you need to setup Guest access on the Windows Machine, then Ubuntu will be able to connect without a password06:40
jay_why_beeIt is actually samba06:40
jay_why_beeI have the guest part setup.  and with smbclient it works fine.06:40
special_kjuniour the best bt client to use for this is blueman device manager06:41
jay_why_beeBut in Ubuntu when I try to "connect to server..." it will not let me proceed without a value in password.06:41

razz1I am after a good notepad that always runs in the background, and keeps formatting unlike gedit. I use Lotus notes journal at work and want something similar. I like to keep adding notes to several test files. I am sure there will be some software around, any help07:49
grkbloodhow do i get the wicd package without installing it07:49
grkbloodjust the package07:49
razz1bfreis: you do not need -Y switch if you configured the sshd with X forwarding07:51
knoppiesRadeon Graphics card driver gave up on me. It seems to have reverted back to the default open source ones, I tried re-installing fglrx, no luck.07:51
ZykoticK9grkblood, http://packages.ubuntu.com/ perhaps?07:51
bfreisrazz1, I know, but I'm trying with both -X and -Y to see if I can get it to work07:51
bfreisrazz1, anyways, that's not the point. As I said: it works pc ==> notebook, but not the other way round.07:51

bfreisrazz1, if it works with -Y one way, it should work with it the other way round07:52

onatsis it possible to setup RAID 1 with a running/already installed system?07:53
razz1bfreis: i would not have a clue, but are you on a internal network or trying this over the net.07:54
knoppiesrazz1, 5470. Its good, I haven't had any problems, until now. I booted the laptop with 2 external displays and it crashed on me.07:54
bfreisrazz1, tried both, the results are always the same :/07:54
bfreisWhere should I set the variable SSHD_OPTS that gets passed to SSHD in the startup script?07:55
gobbebfreis: /etc/default/ssh07:55
bfreisgobbe, what is the format? simply SSHD_OPTS=my options?07:57
grkbloodjesus! ubuntu is REAALY ticking me off tonight, 10.10 upgrade screwed all this crap up and studio is acting a fool07:57
bfreisor do I need ""?07:57
grkbloodi cant even open my thumb drive now on 10.1007:57
gobbebfreis: i would go with ""07:57
bfreisgobbe, dammit, neither seem to work07:58
gobbebfreis: paste your line07:58
grkbloodyea, i feel like cursing to. im not though because this is freenode07:58
bfreisIf I stop the SSHD service, then start it manually with /usr/sbin/sshd -d -4, then I try to connect, it correctly X forwards07:58
gobbebfreis: do you have other options in /etc/ssh/sshd_config?07:59
bfreisIf I pass the "-4" option through the SSHD_OPTS in /etc/default/ssh, and then launches SSHD with service ssh start, it does not x forwards anymore07:59
bfreisgobbe, nothing else07:59
bfreisthe line is:07:59
bfreisI tried without "" as well07:59
gobbebfreis: -4 has nothing to do with x forwarding, but just to use only ipv408:00
bfreisgobbe, I know, but it allows me to use X forwarding08:01
bfreisIf I /usr/sbin/sshd, I cannot use X forwarding08:01
tntcanyone got multitouch working on the bcm5974 (Macbook Pro)?08:01

tntcall my searching tells me to install the mactel ppa drivers (which I did), but I only get two finger scroling, with no 4 finger stuff08:01
bfreisIt's exactly the same as the one in my notebook. And again: if I connect from my PC to my notebook, x forwarding works. The other way round, it doesnt :/08:04

wmorriciphergoth: yes it was and should be there. I am not sure why it isn't there now.09:10

mohanohibazhang: Actually a package installation was requiring a package which was in lucid09:12
bazhangmohanohi, which one09:12
wmorriciphergoth: that shouldn't be the case as it is a livecd and they run off ram09:12
mohanohibazhang: for openshot09:12

JemtHello guys. About a year or two ago, someone told me that running Linux on a Mac computer would cause CPU overclocking, overheating the system, potentially causing damage. Is this a problem in Ubuntu 10.10 ?10:01
gordonjcpmeco: is your other partition mounted?10:01
mecogordonjcp: yes10:02
jimmy_okay guys, lxrandr only gives one possible resolution, what its currently at and auto. neither fix the screen posision10:02
gordonjcpmeco: then change directory to wherever it's mounted10:02
JemtCan I somehow read CPU info from the system, so I have a chance to confirm that everything is alright ? CPU speed, voltage, temperature etc.10:02
mecogordonjcp: how....?10:02
jim__circlecrossdev, I am a Norton employee...10:02
circlecrossdevubuntu has a freaking sudo vulnerability in 2011. that is supremely scary. i am tired of ubuntu crashing on me too. it is sort of rare, but i have less blue screens than the rare ubuntu crash that keeps happening repeatedly where i have to reboot10:02

sabetsuHey guys, I was wondering something about Ubuntu which is kind of weird. Whenever I change .mp3´s to open in VLC, it keeps opening them in the Movie Player. I have gone to "Open with..." and changed it to VLC and told it to remember this for that file type, but it doesn´t seem to be working after restarting and changing this many times. It is still set to that setting, but keeps opening with Movie Player. Any ideas?10:07

AbhiJitjimmy_,  linux-drivers.org10:09
jimmy_okay, any other ideas about the monitor issue?10:09
bazhangAbhiJit, for a monitor?10:09
AbhiJitbazhang, no idea. just found that site for hardware drivers10:09

jimmy_i have an 8 inch black bar on the right of the screen and a 4 inch on the bottom10:10
bazhangAbhiJit, most monitors have the edid10:10

AbhiJitbazhang, edid?10:10
jimmy_it was plug and play with winxp10:10
AbhiJitnvm got it10:10
sabetsuMaybe I am stupid but it sounds more like a graphics card compatibility issue than an actual monitor issue.10:11
jim__ubottu, I am okay with tasks on my computer cos its connected to the internet. But my friends computer doesnt have internet, and I have installed Ubuntu. So, for the applications to run and for the security updates it has to be updated.10:11
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)10:11
jimmy_so my graphics card needs a driver to support the monitor?10:11
bazhangjim__, aptoncd would work well for that10:11
bazhangjimmy_, more like a video card issue10:12
jim__bazhang, Even if the motherboard configuration is different?10:12
jimmy_yea, that would be more likely lol.10:12
jim__He is using a Intel board and am on Asus with AMD processor10:12

freiform_hi, i need linux 2.6.37 because of missing hardware support in 10.10's  kernel. is there an easy way to achieve this including  fglrx drivers?  is there an easy way to use natty packages?12:26
bhaveshOMG when I label me drives it add some symbols in fron t of it . Like I renamed a drive from 'new volume' to Drive D, it changed its name to Drive D^_&12:26
bhaveshtried it again and the same thing happened12:26
soreaufreiform_: Use the open radeon driver that is included with the kernel12:26
bhaveshwith gparted.12:26
jribencrypted: fglrx maybe?  I don't have any experience with ati12:27
schnufflefreiform_: use a ppa12:27
Dr_Willisbhavesh:  what filesystem is the drive in question?12:27
freiform_soreau: i need fglrx as the included drievr prevents my laptop from using suspend/hibernate12:28

Dekker3Dschnuffle... how the heck did you know that? I've been insisting that PSU is 600w and you keep talking about 650w... and it IS 650w. o.O12:28

freiform_soreau: it's actually not just the gpu. i have problems with wifi, mic, jack-sensing, fan and that's just the ones i know about.12:36

bhaveshsoreau , if all those three partitions are empty can I just delete them?12:37
schnuffleDekker3D: So the same problems? Sometimes it boots sometimes not?12:37
Jeff_Yeas I think that's what GNOME XCF thumbnailer came from.12:37
Dekker3DOh, and when I searched for that kernel panic, I got a thread about someone with faulty memory.. so I guess that's it. But when I remove some of the memory, it won't boot at all.12:37
Jesdisciplexev hears them correctly12:37
soreaubhavesh: sure12:37
Dekker3Dschnuffle, well, this time it just auto-shutdown. I can try a few more times?12:37
amalgamasoreau: yeah, cpu temp... and no, no processes that use much of the cpu12:38
bhaveshsoreau and then create a new one(ntfs) later?12:38
gpcJeff_: how did you install it?12:38
jribJeff_: I can't find "gnome xfce thumbnailer" anywhere in that bug report12:39

soreaubhavesh: whatever you want to do12:39
Jeff_Ubuntu Software center and then I tried reiinstalling it with snaptic12:39
[bean]if so it has to run i pairs or triplets12:39
Dekker3DSix sticks12:39
schnuffleDekker3D: No memory seems to be faulty, so tr to replace and test again12:39
soreauamaiman: maybe its misreporting the temp from the driver? Or does it really feel hot? Do you have it in well ventilated position?12:39
jribJeff_: or gnome xcf even12:39
bhaveshsoreau : just have a problem here.. All those ntfs drive are empty even then my gparted shows about 1Mb data in each of them :|12:39
Dekker3Dschnuffle, what do you mean "No memory seems to be faulty"?12:39
bhaveshspreau : I mean 17MB12:39
[bean]running a single triple channel ramstick wont getyou far12:40
Dr_Willisbhavesh:  i think that mey be due to wasted space for the blocks/tables/stuff12:40
soreaubhavesh: Its probably file system data that is useless to you12:40
schnuffleIt means that the problem is apparently clearly your memory12:40
Dr_Willisbhavesh:  and i think the ntfs-3g driver  does some work arounds also.12:40
Dekker3D[bean], but dual channel ramsticks will work alone too, right?12:40
bhaveshok then ill format them .. Dr_Wills : which work?12:40
jribJeff_: anyway, I think I read that it only works after you open the file once.  Check if that's true.12:40
Dr_Willisbhavesh:  i doubt if formating them will do anytjhing if they are allready empty12:41
[bean]they could yea, but it might not. they are made to be run a specific way12:41
bhaveshDr_willis ok12:41
amalgamasoreau: it feels hot, and i dont think its a problem of the place... with windows(blah!!!)  the temperature was ok.. now i run only ubuntu so i cant really check.. but the position is not the problem12:41
Dr_Willisbhavesh:  try it and see if you want. :)  you always have some lost space on any filesystem12:41
Jeff_Yes that's the issue I'm trying to fix.12:41
amalgamai believe at least12:41
[bean]yea, there will always be some lost space due to cluster size12:42
jribJeff_: well does the workaround given in the bug report I gave you exhibit the same behavior?12:42
soreauamaiman: Could be a hot gpu? Which graphics driver are you using?12:42
amalgamasoreau: nvidia 960012:43
Jesdiscipleno xmodmap help? =(  just thought to try #xorg and it seems they're all afk12:43
soreauamaiman: Are you using the proprietary driver then?12:44
bhaveshDr_Willis : It says Please unmount any logical partitions having a number higher than 712:44
soreauJesdisciple: What are you trying to do?12:44
bhaveshDr_Willis all of them are unmounted12:44
soreaubhavesh: You cant have them mounted12:44

tucemiuxzulax, it can be tricky, you could read the guide like bazhang asked, or I could give you a few tips if you want13:08
skilztucemiux, the DVD looks fine to me..13:08
bazhangskilz, some new drm then13:09
bazhangskilz, you got the package from medibuntu ?13:09
magellantucemiux, did you use it while running linux or you just boot to the live cd and create an image. I want to use it while im running my linux system.13:09
zulaxbazhang, tucemiux - when i installed ubuntu-desktop, the wifi works out of box - but now i am on server and dont have a full blown GUI13:09
bazhangzulax, check ifconfig , is there a wlan0? if so try sudo dhclient wlan013:10
zulaxbazhang, ifconfig shows lo and eth013:10
tucemiuxmagellan, i did it both ways, but the live CD nowadays is so much easier i just did it with the live CD, I boot up to the live CD, get a graphical interface, connect my USB drive, then fire up gparted13:10
bazhangzulax, still need the output of lspci for chipset13:10
zulaxand iwconfig shows wlan0 but no AP and no data13:10
Kingsycan someone give me some advice, for some reason my ubuntu installed Namoroka its some kinda firefox pre release or something, I just want normal firefox... I have tried sudo apt-get remove namoroka but it says the package doesnt exist.. how do I get rid of it?13:10
bazhangKingsy, what version of ubuntu13:11
tucemiuxmagellan, i meant to say, fired up partimage13:11

Kingsybazhang: it was installed on 10.413:12
Jeff_Please, how do I undo what I did that gconf command that was recommended here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=55199513:12
brontoeeeis there a distro thats especially good at automagically supporting older hardware?13:12
bazhangkingsy thats odd13:12
Kingsybazhang: yup13:12
bazhangbrontoeee, ubuntu , as this is the ubuntu channel13:12
=== mike is now known as Guest21964
magellantucemiux, good u clarify the gparted from partimage.hehe. im a little bit confused there.. by the way have u try it in inside the linux system. or the command line.creating an image.13:13
bazhangbrontoeee, if you want a linux wide search try ##linux13:13
tucemiuxzulax, linux journal has an article just for you, those ubuntu docs sometimes are overboated, this guide shows you exactly what to do and holds your hand: http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/wi-fi-command-line13:13
Kingsybazhang: so, any advice as to how to proceed in getting rid of this?13:13
zulaxbazhang, i cant seem to find | on my server keyboard :( but its interl pro 100 i think13:13
Jeff_Please how do I undo a gconftool --set command?13:14
zulaxbazhang, intel co pro wireless 2200BG13:14
bazhangzulax, try sudo ifdown wlan0 sudo ifup wlan0 then check ifconfig again13:14
brontoeeebazhang, actually i was hoping for an ubuntu derivate, maybe even officialy supported one, but thanks13:14
bazhangzulax, also be sure there is not hardware switch for that13:14
kurohelo i have one problem with my hard drive he had one sector brek and i would like learn hor te repair this13:14
bazhangbrontoeee, here is only  officially supported ones, ubuntu would be the best (try a live cd)13:15
tucemiuxmagellan,  partimage has like a little somewhat GUI menu, it should be straight forward though, just make sure you know which partition is getting imaged and which partition is going to receive the back up, you dont want to mess those two up or youll have tragic consequences13:15
zulaxifdown says intercace wlan0 not configured bazhang13:15
magellanI planning to try it inside my running linux machine. i thought i won't work creating a image in inside a running machine13:15
magellantucemiux, I planning to try it inside my running linux machine. i thought i won't work creating a image in inside a running machine13:15
bazhangzulax, does it show in ifconfig now13:15
tucemiuxmagellan, make sure the partition isnt mounted though13:15
zulaxnop, i see eth0, eth1, lo bazhang13:15
brontoeeebazhang, tried lucid, now booting 10.10, i have a tiling screen13:15
bazhangzulax, bet its eth113:15
tucemiuxmagellan, i backed up my windows partition from inside linux, i suggest you use a live CD though13:16
Jeff_Can someone tell me where the graphical gconf app is?13:16
zulaxbazhang, yes, and its unassociated now, says ESSID:off/any13:16
bazhangJeff_, get there from alt f213:16
ubuntu_hello does any one know how to configure daloradius with mikrotik?13:16
kurodo any one know how to repair a hard drive broke by a electrycity failure?13:16
bazhangkuro, try ##hardware13:17
magellantucemiux, So its ok to run partimage inside a running linux machine even though the one i create or the source i want to create a image i the one running.13:17
rshi need to ask tech question13:17
bazhangzulax, the wifi link I gave you tells exactly how to do that13:17
ubuntu_can any one tell how can i configure daloradius with freeradius and mikrotik13:17
bazhangubuntu_, what is mikrotik13:18
Jeff_bazhang that opened the "Run Application" dialog.13:18
ubuntu_mikrotik is a router13:18
ubuntu_i want to authenticate users13:18
tucemiuxmagellan, again -- the partition youre going to work on needs to be unmounted -- but since you dont know what that means im going to tell you the safest thing to do --- from within linux it doesnt work(you can do it and prove me wrong) -- use a live CD13:18

jribJemt: what file?13:21
tseHello, I'm opening a VPN via IPsec - Network to Network VPN. I come to open the VPN client appears with the status of OPEN indicating that the connection was made. And that will be use to VPN I access port 22 from an FTP Released by them. But I can not telnet to that port. Direct via Shell Firewall I can ping the IP of the machine normally FTP but I can not telnet on that port and the machine13:21
tseon my network can not ping let alone do telnet.13:21
tse I'm doing the following:13:21
tse In the VPN option - I select IPsec - In Status and control of the link I click on ADD - Inside the connection type select NETWORK TO NETWORK VPN and click on Add - I do all the configuration and the connection is established with the client.13:21
tse My doubt is: After you open the VPN tunnel with my client as I do for a particular IP on my network that I access the VPN and can use FTP?13:21

Jemtjrib & bazhang: Or I need to be able to "protect" it agains being overwritten13:23
magellantucemiux, creating an image in which the source is the running linux machine with out umounting it. or you dont want to boot to live cd. to run it.13:23
tucemiuxmagellan, i heard of others but partimage is the one I tried and it worked, didnt bother testing the other ones, I suggest you use a live CD though, if you have questions about using a live CD go ahead and ask, live CD is the way to go13:23
jribJemt: I don't understand why though, might you not need to rebuild it with a new kernel?13:23

ghufran_mount -o loop /media/Data/Download/image\ file.iso /mnt/isodisk/ but it said i must specify a filesystem type13:25
Jemtjrib: Any package may force it to be regenerated, really. But I use the Live CD to boot Ubuntu installed onto a USB stick. I want to ensure that the kernel and initrd on the Live CD is the same used on the USB stick. Easy done with the kernel, I can just hold it back. But as mentioned, the initrd may be regenerated by any package13:25
m___hi all! Is there anyway to make a process keep running when I shut down the terminal? When I use & it spwans a new process but it doesn't carry on.13:25
magellantuceiux, ah ok thanks..i thought there some package that works creating an image in which the source is the running machine an dont need to boot to live cd everytime i want to create an image. i plannig to create an two image in background if my machine is in idle.13:25
ghufran_bazhang, that didnt work for me13:25
Idol_Mindcan someone help me write a backup script daemon? I know what I want to do, but I don't know how to accomplish it.13:25

Jemtjrib: Wait.. This doesn't make sense at all...13:26
m___smw: ?13:26
smwm___, google it :-)13:26
Jemtjrib: My initial problem was that I was unsure whether I could boot an updated Ubuntu 10.10 with the "old" Live CD which has an older kernel and older Initrd13:26
schnuffleIdol_Mind: There are already thousands of good scripts, why should it be a daemon?13:26
bazhangm___, append nohup13:26

Idol_Mindschnuffle, because my wife is linux illiterate, so I want to make it a daemon (or just add the script to init.d)13:27
ghufran_i also tried installing a software.. its called gmount-iso but it gave me this: An error occured wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error. In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so13:27

schnuffleIdol_Mind: I use t to backup a server with lvm snapshots13:30
Jemtjrib: Not sure. What I want is simply to be able to boot my Ubuntu on a USB stick, since all computers do not support USB boot. And replacing the kernel and initrd on the Live CD is not simple. The initrd on the USB stick does not contain Casper, so I can't just copy it to the Live CD (yes, I'm remastering it)13:30

ghufran_erUSUL, i'm not sure.. its a download13:50
tucemiuxghufran_, youre having serious issues using the command line, that's why I sent you the link on how to do it using the GUI, they showed you more than once on how to do it but youre still doint it wrong, if you want to do itusing the command line I highly suggest you use: man mount13:50
soreauhilarie: Nope, its already in your PATH13:50
JemtAnother question: Can I remove linux-headers-* packages ? Are they really used? I never build a custom kernel.13:51
erUSULghufran_: this is what i get with a real iso: ubuntu-10.10-alternate-amd64.iso:         # ISO 9660 CD-ROM filesystem data 'Ubuntu 10.10 amd64             ' (bootable)13:51
hilarie@soreau Well that's so simple, it's complicated....13:51
bazhangabhijain, updated how13:51

Jemttucemiux: But if they are required, I'd better leave them installed.13:52
ghufran_erUSUL, so means its not an iso then .. :D13:52
Sengokutucemiux: ugh, can i reinstall ubuntu without losing my data?13:52
hilarie@soreau /usr/bin/xchat That's where its installed, i can do that for any program?13:52

tucemiuxJemt, i mean, the headers are there for  a reason, some applications need them, virtualbox for example, will not work if the headers are not installed13:52
Sengokutucemiux: sweet, i got into terminal!13:52
soreauhilarie: Yes, as long as it is executable and in your PATH. See echo $PATH13:53

mecoI have a problem with the screensaver that is crashing the PC. When the screenasaver starts up, it runs (graphics are fine) for about one second, then the screen goes black, sound shuts off and the caps lock light is unchangable. In order to restart the PC I have to hold down ctrl-alt-del for several seconds, I got the advice to boot with an older graphics driver by appending i915.modeset=0 to the kernel line during bootup, but that didn't13:54
mecomake any difference. Now what?13:54

ron__is there a way to set ubuntu open up the same applicatons that were opened before a restart? fedora seems to have that inherently (though maybe it's a kde thing?)14:00
tucemiuxSengoku, the next thing I would try is booting up into safe mode but if that doesnt work then your best bet would be a thread in the forums14:01
