Sdw195how would you dual boot a notebook with ubuntu 10,10 and xp (already on it)00:03
erUSULkv102t: check the sources file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list00:03
Cpt_Zyphis there a install peram i can enter so that x11 uses a lesser driver or something im stuck and not finding good links on google other then compuiz problems *(00:03

Cpt_Zyphwhat are some other ways to install so x11 dosnt try to start and im all bugged out.. even terminal view is messed up00:03
h4fcurrently I am seeing all joins in empathy00:03

BlankFor Netbook Edition, what are the requirement(s) for getting the option to keep in launcher for the sidebar?00:03
josephseraoserUSUL, Hey, how do I put one user to work with the "sudo" command?00:04
josephseraoserUSUL, by default, in Debian, there is no user who can work with sudo... Understand?00:04
Cpt_Zyphthe_student well on a fresh install with normal desktop 10.10 i cant use it because the gui is messed up so i downloaded the alt version and that does the old install .. b ut then when it boots its all scrambled and i cant make out anything on the screne00:04
erUSULjosephseraos: you are in debian?00:04
Cpt_ZypherUSUL i thought so too atleast there was when i installed 10.04 but i wasnt seeing it on either of these.. did i use the wrong media?00:04
kv102terUSUL: hold it. what is this list for?00:04
kenneth_reitzis there a way to have a username alias?00:04
erUSULkv102t: it is what tells apt where to look for packages00:05
Sdw195coz_: xp00:05
Sdw195i havnt installed ubuntu yet00:05
josephseraoserUSUL, No, I'm not. But I have a desktop that uses Debian... I'm trying to get start with00:05
Cpt_Zyphwhich media calls for the lesser video graphics vesa on fresh install?00:05
erUSULkv102t: the one that is wrong seems to be for playonlinux judging by the filename00:05
bastidrazorjosephseraos: sudo adduser username admin ... that will add username to the group admin which allows sudo00:05
coz_Sdw195,   well when you install ubuntu  it will install grub  which will allow you to choose which operating system you want to use for that session00:05
kv102terUSUL: all packages or just playonlinux. i don't use it.00:05
erUSULCpt_Zyph: i think the livecd has it in the boot menu00:05
coz_Sdw195,   I suggest you defrag windows xp  at least once  before installing ubuntu00:05
the_studentCpt_Zyph: Tough nut, repeat wo my username and see if someone else knows00:05
Cpt_Zyphhumm00:05
kv102ti don't want it so this list is void to me..00:05
erUSULkv102t: the one that fails is the playonlinux one00:06
BlankThe main sources file is /etc/apt/sources.list, I think.00:06
MarkAngHey there, fine fellows! I'm having a weird little problem. It's not a problem that needs immediate solving, but a little help might be useful. Anybody up for helping? Just let me know.00:06
kv102thow can i stop it looking at this list?00:06
erUSULkv102t: the error cearly states as much E: Type ‘<html>’ is not known on line 1 in source list /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list00:06
coz_MarkAng,   well it would be easier for smeone to help if you tell us the problem :)00:06
erUSULkv102t: remove the file if you do not use it00:06
MarkAngHaha, was wondering when the first would say that XD00:07
erUSULkv102t: sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list00:07
Cpt_ZypherUSUL ooo.. i normal try to avoid the live disks but i guess that would be ok .. so get live disk .. boot then do install to system once in gnome?? or can i do a install from fresh boot before going into live session?00:07
erUSULkv102t: then run « sudo apt-get update »00:07
josephseraosbastidrazor, look: I don't have to create a new user. There is one user by default too. But, to run apt-get, I have to change user to -> su <- (root)00:07
kv102terUSUL: i still get error00:07
MarkAngEvery so often, my Ubuntu 10.10 produces the weirdest graphical glitch, where all the fonts get messed up (sometimes beyond readable) and it won't do stuff like hibernating.00:07
Sdw195coz_: i recently installed 10.10 on my desktop and couldnt  get it to run on the same drive as xp00:08
erUSULkv102t: post the error you get00:08

BlankUnless I missed the answer, how do you get the option to keep a running program in the launcher for Netbook Edition?  It is for a program extracted from an archive rather than installed through package manager.00:11

mzawieskano its not showin on the vbox where i have installed windows xp00:12
FraxtilIs there a way to toggle caps lock from the terminal? I've mapped it to another key but there are some (rare) cases where I need to use it.00:12
nofrillzdid you enable usb support when you installed virtualbox?00:12
BlankMarkAng - My only guess would be video driver related, but that's not much help.00:13
KM0201mzawieska: what version of virtualbox did you install?00:13
MarkAngHeh, no.00:13
kv102terUSUL: deleted all fine now thanks00:13
nofrillzFraxtil, I would remap that key to Shift+CAPS, and leave caps-lock alone00:13
nofrillzor vice versa00:13
sam___hi can anyone help?00:13
mzawieskahow can i check what version i am running00:13
josephseraosbastidrazor, when I put su, and put the password, I entered like root.. So, I put you command: adduser joseph adm (do not have admin) and it returns -> joseph is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported00:13
MarkAngBut that does sound logically. Usually it works just fine, I can view movies, run all kinds of graphical content and such no problem00:13

nofrillzI was merely curious is all00:17
MarkAngBlank It seems completely random, but it almost always occurs when I'm working on said Flash app (Pimp My Gun 0.6 if you're curious) and I enter hibernation. When I come out of hibernation it usually happens.00:17

Cpt_ZypherUSUL is it some other options i can pick from the install screen .. acpi=off or noapic or edd=on something like that to make it dumb down the video drivers?00:19
bastidrazorjosephseraos: the command i gave will work for Ubuntu. i would not recommend it in Debian. ask in #debian00:19
Cpt_ZypherUSUL i cant boot to the non alt desktop disk and see anything at all on this laptop so im guessing i should have a similar option on this alt desktop disk as well im just not seeingit like i used to on the 10.04 disks00:20

dr3vanHello  I have a question.  I am new to Linux all together , but I have windows 7 installed on one of my hard drives and decided I wanted to install Ubuntu on a second hard drive.  How I thought it would work is that ubuntu would install grub when i installed it and when I would restart the computer it would ask what os to boot.  Now that I have installed Ubuntu it does not ask and even if i choose the hard drive windows is i02:38
dr3vannstalled on it says the boot record is invalid?02:38

mykalok, so i can kinda watch videos in the movie player short of some flickering. funnily enough seems to work better without pri nvidia drivers. but fullscreen flash is like a frame every 2 seconds on fullscreen in firefox and chrome. any way i can boost flash? still cant find any html5 content on youtube to test chrome04:49
Cpt_Zyphdismo i know on older ubuntu even feodra distros there was a install with vesa options but.. atm im stuck04:49
rwwthauriswulfa: messages in #ubuntu beginning with ! are usually instructions to ubottu (the channel bot) to send information.04:49
Cpt_Zyphdismo i would think i could load up the x files and change it to use vesa but that didn't seem to work either.. or even tell grub to do something and install nividia options by command line or something04:50
LinuxGuy2009aaronb_houstx: Oh cool. I actually just read that manually selecting the PPD that brother provides on the website that is seperate from the one installed on the system from the deb package may work better and I reprinted the test page and it completed. So maybe this will fix it for me. I would like to stick with the LTS but if needed I will upgrade to 10.10. Thanks for the info!04:50

Cpt_Zyphdismo not to mention find out the exact hardware model number etc as i have not used this machine in years05:11
kuttan_So basically I want to keep only one app for each function, instead of multiple apps installed per function- which is the case right now. Which renders my system slow.05:11

GabrielYYZkuttan_: try doing (sudo apt-get search "app function") without parenthesis and "app function" = what the app does05:11

masai47I am hoping to add a file server and proxy server to a room with a couple of computers with Edubuntu installed.  Is there a way that the (clients?) can have /home and any other user related files (such as login credentials) on the file server so that settings follow them from computer to computer.  But still have it so that each computer can also boot up and login as standalone if the network is not available?05:38
rwwezy: gpg's -r option doesn't mean recurse like it does in other programs. You can't, in fact, encrypt a directory with gpg. You'd need to tar it up first.05:38
ezyrww, I tried it on a text file and still I can read the file without decrypting05:39
rwwezy: what command are you using for the text file?05:40
rwwezy: oh, another thing... gpg just writes to standard output by default. if you want to write to a file, use gpg -o05:41
ezyrww, ah ok...I will do it that way05:41
ezyrww, thanks a bunch05:42

aaronb_houstxmasai47:  it's probably too much trouble to go through if it's going to be a temporary/unstable resource05:47
rwwubunturocks: 1) #debian doesn't support Debian derivatives, just like #ubuntu doesn't support (unofficial) Ubuntu derivatives. 2) #debian is offtopic for #ubuntu ;P05:48
ubunturocksstill doesn't make it right they ban the word ubuntu05:48

aaronb_houstxmasai47: if you're really script happy, you could cook a few shell files to rsync the user files  between client and server, but the logons wouldn't be easy to do if server was offline05:50

user-67842I"m having trouble with my audio under ubuntu 10.10. Sound isn't switching to headphones when there plugged in, instead it continues to plays over both the headphones and rear speakers. I don't have an potion to select the headphones as a device under sound settings ether. My sound card is a Realtek ALC889.05:51
Us3r_UnfriendlyAkuma: then it's a codec issue05:51
masai47aaronb_houstx: The origional plan was to go with thin clients but some demands for windows nixed that.  But I still have a (more)powerful computer to act as a central server and would like to make good use of it.  It being a school environment it would be great if students could access everything from any machine.  That said, its an african school environment where I am trying to ensure that the maximum will still be available and usable as stuff goes wro05:52
AkumaUs3r_Unfriendly: yea, any idea what I can do to fix it? no quite sure where to look at this point05:52

dublued2Hello all, I have a question about networking.  I have a linksys router that has DHCP and assigns IP addresses to my networked devices.  On one of those devices (a wired desktop) I manually assigned an IP address outside of the DHCP range.  Now I am unable to see networked drives.  Any ideas as to how to remedy this?06:17
gnewbboolcrap: That usually works, yes.06:17
gnewbkanupatar: Did you check the Freenode log, is the screen at log in to the server?06:20
aaronb_houstxdublued2: is your manually-assigned IP in the same subnet?  can you ping the Linksys router's inside LAN IP address?06:21
alpha_centauriso: dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/null gives me about 85mb/s.  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda gives me about 16mb/s. why? (regular hd. from samsung)06:21

sjuxaxHi. My bro-in-law has an iPod here with some DRM'd video on it. Anyone know if there is a good DRM stripper for Linux so that he can watch stuff when he is near a Linux machine? Or if I have to use Windows for a one-time DRM strip, that's OK too.06:22
dublued2aaronb_houstx: yes it's the same subnet.  I am able to get into the router settings by typing in the ip address in the url bar of a browser06:22
dublued2bonjoyee: yes it's the same subnet06:22
kanupatarnope..06:23
bonjoyeedublued2: so where's the issue?06:23
aaronb_houstxdublued2: which system has the resources and which can't see?06:23
gnewbkanapatar: The server names and numbers are listed there.06:24
dublued2so here's the issue.  there are 3 devices in play.  laptop, desktop, and a NAS.  The laptop and NAS get an autmatically assigned ip address from the router.  the desktop ip address is manually assigned.  i can see the nas drive from the laptop but i cannot see it from the desktop.  the desktop ip address was first assigned to be outside of the dhcp range, then i tried assigning it an ip address that was within the dhcp range but it still won06:25
dublued2the nas unless it gets an ip address automatically from the router06:25
aaronb_houstxdublued2: are you accessing resources via IP address or DNS names?06:27
crazzyharryI have 4 gig ram, and I installed ubuntu 64bit, but when I type free it shows Mem:       3090168   and Swap:      480562806:29

crazzyharrywhy isnt Mem: 4gig ?06:29
dublued2aaronb_houstx:  in the manual settings, i put in the following info:  ip: 10.0.0.100 ; subnet mask:255.255.255.0, gateway: 10.0.0.1 ; primary dns: 10.0.0.106:29
Loshkidublued2: you've power cycled everything? Starting with the linksys....06:30

coz_doobien,   see if this works on lucid    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/132551/REINSTALL%20LIST09:09
plouffesacarlson, so apparmor selectively gives access to directories to processes?09:10
coz_doobien,   when that opens at logon  it will "look"  like you are changing the  entire theme,,,but it will only change the gdm theme09:10
coz_doobien,  even though you select a theme as if you were chaning the system theme09:11

sacarlsonplouffe: I found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AppArmor09:15
plouffesacarlson, since my apparmor profile for mysql seems to be corrupted, do you know if there is a way to reset the profile to installation settings? Complete reinstall didn't fix it.09:15
plouffesacarlson, yes I am reading it, thanks09:15
sacarlsonplouffe: and I have now found this file /etc/apparmor.d/usr.sbin.mysqld09:16
plouffeha, the directories I cannot access are commented in there09:17
herveAnyone van help me .......... yesterday i install  the SHACKBOX AIR in the installation  i my name and new password but it still keep the the default ...... anyone can help me please???09:18
sacarlsonplouffe: so suspect you keep your database files outside of /var/lib/mysql/** rwk,  this dir?09:18
plouffeyes, I originally did09:19
sacarlsonplouffe: cool just uncomment and restart apparmor09:19
plouffebut after the complete reinstall I changed the datadir back to /var/lib/mysql09:19
plouffehow do I restart apparmor?09:19
rwwherve: ShackBox Air is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu. Please seek support from your distribution, not from #ubuntu.09:20
plouffeok it seems just restarting the processes will apply the apparmor profiles.09:21
herveok rww thank you annd 73s09:21
sacarlsonplouffe: I'm sure reboot will reset it and maybe sudo invoke-rc.d apparmor reload09:21
sacarlsonplouffe: ok then your set09:22
baron_sengireasy question for the gurus out there.

bazhang!partner | bhavesh09:27
ubottubhavesh: Canonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »09:27

TSKIt might be of interest to know how Chrome itself was installed also.  If it was installed from a ".bin" file or other similar method, then installing Java the CORRECT way may STILL not work no matter what Herculean efforts are tried.09:32

sacarlsonsnimavat: I'm not sure how complicated that would be to move all /usr/sbin /usr/bin  /bin /sbin  files to example /usr/sbin.org /usr/bin.org /bin.org /sbin.org  and add those to the path so they will work09:52

Victor__I have an ubuntu administration problem with cryptdisks/cryptsetup: I have a regular Ubuntu 10.10 setup with an encrypted partition /dev/sda1, I added this partition to /etc/crypttab but Ubuntu does not ask for the password at boot time, what am I doing wrong?09:55
rumpe1AndroidGoat, try strg-alt-Fx  with x from 4 to 8 ... otherwise enter "startx"09:55
brontoeeegreenIT, they both have some sort of prebufering, if that is your question? you can specify buffer in mplayer command line, but it wont help09:55
GneaAndroidGoat: then you need to learn how to communicate properly instead of assuming that anyone knows what you're talking about.09:55

sacarlsonsnimavat: i looked at --instdir but seems --root has presidence over that,  try a single deb file with both and see,  if it seems to do what you want then maybe make a symlink to a modified dpkg script  that adds the --root or --install on every install after that10:07

FloatingGoatthanks again it's working! i didnt know there was a stand alone wubi 10.10! thanks for the help10:12
agrumanikonia, ok ... should i contact the vendor to see if its enabled!? I would have guessed that linux would be able to show that using a cmd like lshw or something10:12
GneaFloatingGoat: no problem, good luck10:12
ikoniaagruman: that's not what you asked, you asked to see if it supports it, not if it's enabled, ask a question clearly10:12
Corneliusikonia, its my understanding that the session startup only runs after someone logs in, i need root to start them just after booting up. i think ive explored the session startup option10:12
TSKOkay.  After reading snimavat's question thread, I think it might be a good idea to point something out here for the folks who don't understand.  You should ALWAYS try to install software on Ubuntu using the package manager.  Do NOT just download software from random websites and try to install it like you would under Windows or Mac OS.  Linux does things differently.  ALWAYS try to find the software you are seeking in the package manager10:13
TSKFIRST, and if it's not there, then try to find a TRUSTWORTHY package source to add to the package manager.  Installing from source code or from a random package should be a LAST RESORT.10:13
Dr_Willisagruman:  last i read up on 'ncq' it was basically dident give much (if any) benifit if it was enabled.. Not heard about NCQ in the various blogs/benchmark blogs, in ages.10:13
manasis it problem between walrus and NC10:13
altinHi all10:13
agrumanikonia, well i asked both actually, but ok, il rephrase, how do i check if NCQ and TRIM are enabled?10:13
altincan someone tell ... does UBUNTU have a FIREWALL ??????10:13
ikoniaCornelius: that makes no sense, gedit won't start until after someones logged in and a desktop is running, so in that case sesison manager is fine10:13
TSKaltin: Yes10:13
ikoniaagruman: for ncq you normally need a tool from the disk vendor10:14
altinTSK, I cant find it :S10:14
Dr_Willisagruman:  NCQ - from the libata faq --> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=14485810:14
altinits not even in System > Administration :/ ??? TSK10:14
ikoniaagruman: you may be able to see it in hdparm10:14
Corneliusikonia, gedit was an example. i actually need it for a few peices of software10:14
TSKaltin: Linux in general has a firewall built into the Kernel.  It's called iptables.  What you are likely looking for is a GUI interface to manage your firewall rules?10:14
Cornelius*custom peices of software10:14
Dr_WillisIf NCQ is enabled for your drive, it will be printed in dmesg after the lba48 flag, such as:10:15
ikoniaCornelius: ok, ANY X11 software will only run after someone logs in, so the point is still valid10:15
manasikonia: how to troubleshoot it10:15
Dr_Willisata1: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, 488281250 sectors lba48 ncq10:15
agrumanDr_Willis, thanks alot, very helpful! :)10:15
ikoniaDr_Willis: are you sure that shows if it is enabled, I thought that was just showing it was capable10:15
=== Silanus is now known as silanus_
Dr_Willisikonia:  no idea. last i looked into ncq - it basically was a 'big deal' about Nothing...10:15
TSKaltin: The firewall in Ubuntu is called ufw (Uncomplicated Firewall), and there is a GUI for it called gufw which can be installed from the software center (package manager).10:15
sacarlsonaltin: do you mean from default?  there are programs to setup firewalls like firestarter10:15
agrumanikonia, both (0/32) disabled, (31/32) enabled10:16
Dr_Willisthe NCQ posts i am finding are also rather old. 2yrs old in some cases.10:16
ikonia!ufw | altin10:16
ubottualtin: Ubuntu, 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.10:16
LoneShadowHi, would it make sense to have a second HDD formatted with btrfs and use it for nfs storage and backups? My / and /home are ext410:16
=== silanus_ is now known as Silanus
ikoniaLoneShadow: not really no, not in my opijion10:16
altinTSK,  ok the reason is that I have some open ports that I found with nmap but even ufw doesnt close them ikonia10:16
agrumanikonia, thanks for the hint of hdparm, will read up on that10:16
ikoniaaltin: it will if you configure it to10:17
Dr_Willishttps://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Libata_FAQ#Enabling.2C_disabling_and_checking_NCQ10:17
Dr_WillisEnabling NCQ, if supported, is the same:10:17
altinI used sudo ufw deny (port)10:17
Dr_Willis$ echo 31 > /sys/block/sdX/device/queue_depth10:17
altinikonia, I used sudo ufw deny (port) ?10:17
LoneShadowikonia: I want to use my second hdd mainly for backups for both linux and windows data. So you think its better to use it as ext4 and install some sort of backup software to manage it?10:17
ikoniaaltin: so ?10:17
TSKaltin: You may want to try scanning using "Shields Up" at http://www.grc.com/ before you start messing too much with the firewall locally.10:17
Dr_WillisLinux NCQ (SATA native command queueing) support is enabled automatically, if your SATA drive supports it. At boot, you will see a line in dmesg (or kernel log) like10:18
altinwhen I scan with nmap it shows that its open again :/ ikonia10:18
ikoniaLoneShadow: I think it will be better to use a filesystem that both linux and windows can use, eg; fat32, or partition it into 2 partitions, one for linux backup ext4 and one for windows backup, ntfs10:18
ikoniaaltin: what nmap command are you using ?10:18
TSKScanning a local machine with nmap will only show what other machines on your local network can see.  If you want to know what ports are open to the OUTSIDE world, you have to scan FROM outside.10:18
brontoeeeikonia, any problems with ntfs and ubuntu this days? (not for linux backups, just for files)10:19
MagicJdoes anyone know of a version of the game collapse for ubuntu - it would seem that it must exist but I can't find it10:19
sacarlsonaltin: in most cases I just close the application that I don't want to listen,  sudo netstat -pant to isolate the application to the port10:19
* jmad980 still doesn't trust linux + ntfs10:19
jmad980tho it is functional @ brontoeee10:19
Corneliusikonia, well i have x11vnc and a teamspeak3 server that needs to run as root after boot. without a login, how do you prepose i run those?10:19
ikoniabrontoeee: I wouldn't do it10:19
altinI also used  Zenmap10:20
Dr_WillisCornelius:  teamspeak server has a GUI for X?   or is it an actual 'service' ?10:20
ikoniaCornelius: they are not X11 apps10:20
TSKI'm using NTFS on my 2TB external USB drive for over a year now without issue (using NTFS3G).10:20
altinanyway how can I close the ports ?10:20
ikoniaCornelius: the examples you gave are X11 apps, those are not10:20
LoneShadowikonia: Why NTFS for windows, I could export the ext4 partition using samba right?10:20
=== Silanus is now known as silanus
brontoeeeikonia, i have constanly files that are bigger than 4 gigs, and i need to share the usb disks with windows and macs, how to solve that then perfectly?10:21
ikoniaLoneShadow: sure, I as assuming from how you explained windows and ubuntu where on the same machine in a dual boot, not windows clients on the network10:21
sacarlsonaltin: close or killall the application?10:21
Dr_Willissamba shouldent care what FS its  'shareing' but shareing NTFS can be a bit tricky at times.10:21
Corneliusikonia, im aware of that, sorry i gave bad examples! do you have any suggestions as to how i can run them, and kill one without them both dying?10:21
ikoniaCornelius: you don't use & as I told you10:21
Dr_Willisbrontoeee:  id use ntfs then.10:21
brontoeeeDr_Willis, right10:21
ikoniabrontoeee: I'd use two partitions with native file systems for each OS10:21
LoneShadowikonia: Sorry, missed that part, only my laptops are running Windows. I guess I will format this as ext4 on the linux server :)10:21
ikoniaLoneShadow: that makes sense10:21
Corneliusikonia, yes thanks you've said that already. It still doesnt point me in the right direction10:22
FloatingGoatwas 8.10 a bad version of ubuntu?10:22
SwedeMikeFloatingGoat: no, why?10:22
Dr_Willis!8.1010:22
ubottuUbuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) was the ninth release of Ubuntu. End Of Life: April 30th, 2010. See !eol and !upgrade for more details.10:22
ikoniaCornelius: it doesn't as the & problem was for X11 apps, if you're not running X11 apps, you can just put them in rc.local10:22

FloatingGoatSwedeMike: it was my favorite10:23
brontoeeeanother q, regarding wd usb stuff, is it possible to get rid of wd smardware with ubuntu box?10:23
ikoniabrontoeee: when you format it, it will go10:23
brontoeeeikonia, nope, survives every type of destruction i tryed10:24
TSKbrontoeee: I removed that partition from my drive entirely after I copied it to a CD.10:24
ikoniabrontoeee: delete the partition and re-create10:24
brontoeeeTSK, how?10:24
brontoeeeikonia, thats what i did10:25
ikoniabrontoeee: I doubt it10:25
TSKbrontoeee: The Smartware is a partition on the drive.  You need to use a partition editor tool to remove it.  (Be EXTREMELY careful with such tools.)10:25
ikoniabrontoeee: the software is held on the partition, if you remove it, it will be gone10:25
TSKThe partition is formatted such that it appears to the system as if it were a CD, so that it will autorun when the drive is connected to a Windows machine.10:26
brontoeeei used gparted to do that and osx tools do try the same, still it persist somehow...10:26
brontoeeewell, offtopic, doesnt matter really, just an annoyance10:26
Dr_WillisI wonder if one could take a ubuntu iso and make a similer 'rescue' partition...10:27
TSKDr_Willis: Hmmm...  That's actually a really EXCELLENT idea...  I might have to give that a try...10:27
brontoeeeDr_Willis, i'd say this is wd hardware specific, hd drive bios specific even10:28
LoneShadowikonia: If you were to use a new 2nd HDD for backups, would you use it as complete primary partition + ext4, OR use LVM, Extended Partitions,..?10:28
brontoeeei mean the non-destructible partition10:28

usuarioalmeria10:31
Dr_Willissacarlson:  yes. it was rather trivial once you learned the basics, :) and that every disrto seems to have its own *#&*&!&@# options needed with non-standard naming of various variables.10:32
Dr_Willissacarlson:  check http://delicious.com/dr_willis  under my grub/grub2 tags.10:32

Dr_Willissacarlson:  once you get one going.. i  made a 8gb flash drive tha tcould boot like 8 differnt iso's10:33
Dr_Willissacarlson:  another trick - you can keep the ISO files on a ntfs, or other partition. and have a 'emergancy rescue/live cd' option in your grub menus on a normal install.10:34
ayakaDoes ubuntu have nvidia non-free package ,is it's nvidia-current?it's not the lastest10:34

RowenI've got a youtube full screne issue as well, but it's a bit more complex, I'm currently running a dual monitor set up so both run a seprate X server and xinerama enabled so I can move windows from one to another. YT will go full screen on both no problem but it goes in wide mode or so and looks like a funky widescreen11:16
Dr_WillisErr.. using Xinerama - both are not running a seperate X server.. unless you got some fancy tricjks going on. :)11:16
abcd99Dr_Willis:im using adobe's 64bit square preview ver. so maybe its because of it... dam11:16
Dr_WillisI use 2 monitors - with twinview. I can fullscreen on monitor #2. but if i click on #1. it would unmax. but ive not tried  it lately.11:17
Rowenoh sorry, seprate X screen11:17
sacarlsonDr_Willis: this link you gave me worked to boot from a grub2 entry added to boot iso files,  not sure what I did wrong before http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1288604   thanks again11:17
Dr_Willissacarlson:  they make the task way harder then it should be. :) they need to get togetyher and standarize the options. Every disrto seems to need different options for that to work.11:18
RowenThis is not my system exactly though :T It's a friends system that he recently asked me to and I quote"Install something other than windows on." so I installed Ubuntu, and he likes it so far, but this issue with YT in fullscreen is annoying him11:19
sacarlsonDr_Willis: ya I guess the method I tried was not for ubuntu so it failed,  this gave about 4 examples that showed differences in each distro11:19
Dr_WillisRowen:  its basically a flash issue from adobe...11:19
RowenAh11:19
Dr_Willissacarlson:  ive done a dozen disrtos.. each with differnt options.11:19
=== Otacon22_ is now known as Otacon22
RowenAlright, thanks Dr_Willis I told my friend about it, he doesn't fully understand but thank you anyways.11:23
edwardteachRowen,  if he is using firefox there is a addon to use an alternate flash player, i use it to get rid of those adverts !11:23
h-deeDr_Willis: I just read you mentioning twinview. Actually, yesterday I tried connecting my lappy to my lcd tv through HDMI, but it showed some part on my lappy display, and remaining part of the same screen on the lcd. Would twin-view help in that situation. I don't have an external graphics card accelerator on my lappy.11:23
sacarlsonDr_Willis: my goal was to just install without a usb flash or cd and this should do that,  I guess one last problem it might not install on the same disk? I've had that problem also since you can't do partition manipulation on the same disk you boot from,  you have a solution for that?  or will this work?11:23
Dr_WillisRowen:  'its adobes fault' :)11:23
Rowenedwardteach, I jsut use AdBlock plus for those adds :P11:23
LucaseWubi installer; Sacarlson11:23
Rowenhehe11:23
sacarlsonLucase: I don't have windows11:23
RowenI've never had the problem because I only use one monitor, with the multi desktops on one screen thing, I felt no need for dual monitor anymore11:24
edwardteachRowen,  its called flashvideoreplacer11:24
sacarlsonLucase: I have an old version of ubuntu and wanted to install another version on another partition11:24
Dr_Willissacarlson:  i set up a 'rescue' partition, i kept the iso's on (on a hd) then i setup grub2 and the files on that partition. the pc could then boot any of the iso files.  (about 10gb in size) - i left  the rest of the HD unallocated. I could boot the rescue partition. then boot an iso/install to the rest of the HD.11:24
thomcis it possible to network two ubuntu machines connected to a wireless router if one is connected wirelessly and the other uses a wired connection?11:24
Dr_Willissacarlson:  or simile thing with a flash, or a 2nd hard drive.11:24
=== owner is now known as sinzuelos
sacarlsonDr_Willis: like I said the iso live boot is booting fine,  but the next problem is to do the install from this boot11:25
LucaseThomc, yes why not ?11:25
Dr_Willissacarlson:  you install to a differnt drive, or alrleady partitioned location. You dont resize where they are at during the install.11:25
thomcLucase, i just wondered if them being connected differently made a difference. guess not.11:26
Rowenedwardteach, whould it let it display dualmonitors properly in full screen11:26
Lucasethomc, it wont affect anything :)11:26
sacarlsonDr_Willis: ya that might work,  maybe if the partitions are already there,  I'll try it11:26
thomcLucase, great. is nfs the recommended way of sharing files between linux machines?11:26
edwardteachRowen, i dont know but it maybe worth a shot!11:27
apparleis there any shortcut to toggle the menubar of any app.... particularly firefox11:27
Dr_Willissacarlson:  the trick is you CANT resize the partition you booted from - during the isntaller..11:27
Lucasethomc, the recomended way to share files will be on the Program list in ubuntu software packages11:27
besogonthomc: Of course NFS is not recommended way for connecting 2 machines11:27
Dr_Willissacarlson:  after i get an install going. I set up my iso files on /boot/ or some other HD. and set grub to boot them from my installed system. as a 'failsafe'11:28
RowenOk, well.. .some how my friends wired mouse died... So I'll give it a shot the moment the mouse wants to work again..11:28
sacarlsonDr_Willis: for now I'll live with just adding another disk drive,  I found some old laptop drives that I have a converter for to plug in so problem solved11:28
thomcbesogon, ok. is there a recommended way? i'm new to this.11:28
Jordan_UDr_Willis: Not true, as long as you use the toram option :)11:28
Dr_WillisHmm. I use NFS to share stuff btween 2 machines all the time.. what else is it supposed to be used for. :)11:28
besogonthomc: you can use Samba or ssh11:28
Dr_Willisits all in the details of what you are doing i guess.11:29
thomcbesogon, ok thanks11:29
Jordan_Usacarlson: If you pass "toram" as a kernel parameter, and you have enough RAM (> 1 GiB), the complete iso will be loaded into RAM so that the partition it was loaded from can be unmounted.11:29
besogonDr_Willis: NFS is not convenient way I suppose even thou it is the fastest one11:30
Dr_Willissacarlson:  watch out for swap partitions also. the live  cd's often see/use them automatically11:30
sacarlsonJordan_U: no this system has 512meg, but I'll keep that in mind11:30
Dr_Willisbesogon:  depends on what your convience is.. :)11:30
Dr_Willisive had less hassles setting up NFS in the past  then fighting samba in a mixed network. :)11:30
besogonDr_Willis: For me it's using Nautilus and Win clients if possible11:31
shubbaris there a way to see all packages installed by a specific user?11:31
Jordan_Usacarlson: The option for that is to use the minimal install iso, it loads everything into RAM (it's just a kernel and initramfs) but it's small enough that 512 MiB is more than enough.11:31
raviepic3hello people, i am facing the legacy dual boot problem, installed windows after linux and my linux boot option aint visible, so i loaded into live disc and did this | sudo -s, grub, find /boot/grub/stage1, root (hd0,6), setup (hd0,6), quit, reboot | kindly replace , with enter. after setup it finally asid done but when i restart it default boots into windows11:31
raviepic3how do i proceed ?11:31
Jordan_Uraviepic3: What version of Ubuntu are you using?11:32

fu...........11:33
raviepic3Lucase, i already a working copy of windows and ubuntu on same machine, windows got corrupted so reinstalled, and now this proble,11:33
raviepic3Lucase, yes i use windows11:33
Jordan_Uraviepic3: 9.04 is no longer supported, you should upgrade as soon as possible. As for GRUB, the problem is that you tried to install to a partition rather than the mbr. Either "setup (hd0)" or don't use the grub shell at all and use "grub-install --root-directory=/mountpoint /dev/sda"11:34
Lucaseraviepic3, yes try to get the new ubuntu version on your cd, or just go with Wubi11:34

RowenBit of lag when first loading the YT page but then it runs fine11:42
Dr_WillisYou do realize that Youtube can use html5 for video playback for most videos and not need Flash at all?11:42

Dr_Willissharkk:  not sure there is a way to do that.11:44
RowenNot sure why you whould do that.11:44
Dr_Willissharkk:  i think the software center is supposed to get some features like that some time.. but not sure if its in there yet.11:44
sharkkjust toknow which pkgs i installed yesterday, because i forgot...11:44
Dr_Willissharkk:  what tool did you isntall them with?11:45
sharkkthere is no log of apt-get activity?11:45
Dr_Willissome may keep logs.11:45
lapionsharkk, ubuintu software center has a history thingy check it out11:45
sharkkkpackage11:45
brontoeeelapion, Dr_Willis for a video producer html5 is pain currently, example: chromium on ubuntu reports that it can play h.264 when it actually cant without certain nonfree install, so in any case you need to prepare multiple files..., but yes it might kill flash for video part in some years to come11:45
=== oCean_ is now known as oCean
oCeansharkk: there is also the /var/log/apt/history.log logfile you can check11:46
RowenAlso, Dr_Willis: My friend is used to Firefox, I don't think he will use Chrome...11:46
Dr_Willishis loss.11:46
brontoeeelapion, Dr_Willis so basically html5 is a rich-man domain currently, which is exactly the opposite on what the producers would expect..., google will not support h.264, apple will probably not support webm and so on...11:47
Dr_WillisI use both. :) often at the same time.11:47
sharkkok, i solve it: cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep 'install '   thanks to you anyway11:47

Dr_Willisrarely had any issues with Twinview on my 2 monitor setup.11:49
Dr_Willisit pays to learn how to fix things. :)11:49
RowenWell twinview didn't work how we wanted it, when a program went fullscreen it took both monitors11:50
edwardteachRowen, how did you fix it ?11:51
lapionrowen are you using compiz ?11:51
RowenI uninstalled the Adobe plugin and installed Gnash SWF Viewer11:51
Dr_WillisRowen:  you dident have twinview setup then,. You were using Xinerama11:51
Rowenand no11:51
Dr_Willisboot system -> install nvidia drivers -> reboot -> run nvidia config app. -> enable twinview NOT xinerama -> restart X server.. should work/fullscreen to each monitor seperately11:52
Dr_Willisifyou just use 'apply' and DONT resart the X server after enabling twinview - You can have issues.11:52
Frappuccinohow do i 'rename using perlexpr' for files, file01 file03 file05 to file01 file02 file0311:53
edwardteachDr_Willis,  can you use twin view just as well as xinerama ?11:54
Dr_Willisedwardteach:  twinview Superceded xinerama. you dont use both. :)11:54

Dr_Willisbut then it would stay at windows as the default untill you set it differntly12:10
Dr_Willisit also has a saved-default option where it rembers the last os you selected. and that is the new defauilt12:10
Rowen_StipeMaybe have a script that runs on login and checks what the default is, and if it's not ubuntu it sets it to ubuntu12:11
Dr_Willisyep. thats always possible.12:11

MangledBodyHi folks!12:19
LoneShadowwmorri: I tried that, didn't help, probably because ohci_hcd is not a module, its kernel built in12:19
MangledBodyThis is little OT, but... Does anybody have download link (working) for cdproboot-0.2.iso ??12:20
Dr_WillisLoneShadow:  there might be some kenel boot options to disable it.12:20
LoneShadowI am tring to see if there is something similar to nousb grub option12:20
Dr_WillisMangledBody:  check torrent sites perhaps.12:20
magellanmay i ask command how to mount with users permission not root a ext4 partition12:20
magellani mean manually not in fstab12:20
LoneShadowDr_Willis: Yes, but not finding it yet, know any global list of kernel options webpage?12:20
MangledBodyDr_Willis: No... Pirate bay has no clue about it and the others too...12:20
Dr_Willismagellan:  you dont just 'override' a linux flesystems permissions with mount options.12:20

magellanbecause if i use the point and click i think its root permission.and i cant copy or move a files to that partition12:22
Dr_Willismagellan:  you can set up fstab to allow a user to Mount a partition. but that will NOT give the user full access to the ext2/3/4 partition. the normal linux ownership/permissions will still apply to the files on the partition.12:23

zatanoCean,  the right package is not here! I need linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.35-24-generic-pae but I got just only linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.35-24-generic13:31
erUSULaman: see « cat /proc/mounts »13:31

angelslon kubuntu. somehow my father received an upgrade notice, so he went along with it and somehow got 11.04. how do I revert back to 10.10 safely?13:32
oCeanzatan: but the uname -r gave the "type" kernel you are currently using, it's apparently not -pae13:32
magellanASK: I notice in a ntfs partition you cand change a user permission of a file it always root permission although you can rwx is this true or ill mistaken13:32
amanerUSUL, thanks man i got it....:))13:33
zatanoCean, where else I can try to pass these questions ?13:33
amanmprince, even your advise is also good...:)13:34
amanmprince, thanks13:34
masai47I have just done a fresh install of edubuntu but for some reason it does not recognize Internet (even though it downloaded data during the install process.  Is there something I have to start or restart?13:34
mprincemagellan: can you rephase?13:34
manasmy window 2003 instance showing pending state after that get terminated how to troubleshoot13:34
magellanDoes only root permission allowed in the ntfs partition..i notice a changed the permision no error but when i check it still root permission..13:35
oCeanzatan: remember you don't need any -pae package if you are not running the -pae kernel. So in this case, you have the package that matches your kernel. This channel would be the correct place to ask about your sound issues, or scan the forums (http://ubuntuforums.org)13:35
brontoeeemagellan, there are no permissions possible on non-linux file system i think13:35
RickyHarlineHey, all, I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 x64.  I'm trying to install the alternate version, and after I select "Install" or "Run Ubuntu from this USB" a bunch of text starts flashing across the screen and then when it gets to one command it just stops.13:36
magellanmprince, Does only root permission allowed in the ntfs partition..i notice a changed the permision no error but when i check it still root permission..13:36
zatanoCean,  okay so now where I can look what causing this problem ?13:36
manascan anybody know how to troubleshoot13:36
mprincemagellan: they can be changed by the user / group that has ownership of the files and by root13:37
oCeanzatan: I have no idea. Just ask your question (detailed with the steps taken and results sofar) in this channel. Then be patient and try again in 20 or 30 minutes13:37
Gneamanas: yes, it's possible for anyone to learn how to do it13:37
zatanoCean,  suprise!  I dont know how but suddenly its start working, its really strange ... after 2 hours ..13:38
manasGnea: my window 2003 instance in UEC showing pending state after that get terminated how to troubleshoot13:38
oCeanzatan: oh wow :)13:38
zatanoCean,  thank anyway, its time to go do some shopping now ;]13:39
mprincemagellan: can you copy / paste what you're seeing to pastebin13:39
magellanbrontoeee, thx. iused luckybackup and point the destinition to a ntfs partition like my home dir source but when i check the permission of the destination files its own by root.what if i restore the files it will be owned by root. althought i never try to restore.13:39
oCeanzatan: cool, enjoy13:39
magellanmprince, what do you mean paste bin13:40
Bubbubuntuaaaasd13:40
brontoeeemagellan, as far as i know you need to use linux-aware filesystem for linux backups or possibly a tool that can pack files together with a proper metadata, but i'am guessing here.13:40
mprincemagellan: it appears luckybackup is not preserving the permissions when it copies all your data to the ntfs share13:41

masai471any advice on a fresh edubuntu install not recognizing network (even though it did durring the instalation process13:45

masai471ikonia: I did not do anything, just simple fresh install13:46
ikoniamasai471: ok, so configure your network card13:46
masai471ikonia: how?13:46
ikoniamasai471: use the network manager application13:47
masai471ikonia: I see network Proxy and network tools but no network manager13:48
mprincemagellan: I just realized you're talking ntfs instead of nfs.  Too early for me.  brontoeee was giving you better advice.13:48

RickyHarlineWhy would he require an ISO burner for using a flash drive?14:01
bonjoyeeJackneill: is it a dir(as in a folder) or an image of ubuntu installation disc?14:01
yeatsLDC: try ~/.config/chromium/Default/Application Cache14:01

RickyHarlineCan anyone help me with my Ubuntu installation problem?  The installation freezes a few seconds after I click "Install" using the alternate, and doesn't work at all using the regular install14:04
LDCYeats.... I found it here actually "/home/lenin/.cache/chromium/Default/Cache"  Thanks for the reply though :)14:04
yeatsCraig`: that's correct - an x86 version wouldn't include the "x64" part14:04
yeatsLDC: good14:04
RickyHarlineTrying to install 10.10 x64 on a new laptop...14:05
WestzJackneill, how new is the laptop, and are you going to install 11.04 when it comes out?14:05
=== pupuser242de2 is now known as iflema
Craig`yeats: he's installed x64 on what he thinks to be an x32 laptop, is this a problem?14:06
Jackneillhm14:06
yeatsCraig`: if it installed at all, it can handle x6414:06
gordonjcpCraig`: it won't work14:06
Jackneill10.10-desktop-i386 is not good for a laptop?14:06
gordonjcpCraig`: if it works even a little bit, it's x64 hardware ;-)14:06
Craig`oh haha, cool.14:06
Jackneilli think 11.04 is better but i dont want to wait for that14:06
WestzJackneill, im sure itll be fine if the laptop is relatively new14:07
bonjoyeeJackneill: how much ram?14:07

Jackneillok thanks14:08
Westzis it a dell?14:08
ngrstanhey any mediawiki-knowledgeable folk in this channel?14:09
yeatsRickyHarline: I'm assuming you've 1) checked and double-checked the downloaded image(s) you're using, 2) attempted both CD-ROM and USB installation, 3) verified the integrity of the image with the menu option in the installer, and 4) have used the regular and alternate installers?14:09
bonjoyeeJackneill: if you have a spare empty cd, just burn the iso as an "image" to it..and you should be able to install from it14:09
oCeanngrstan: there is #mediawiki you know?14:09
yeatsoh - he left :-/14:10
Jackneillubuntu netbook editon or desktop is better for a laptop?14:10
Garzookano i didn't14:10
WestzJackneill, dont just put the ISO on the CD, you have to burn it as an ISO. if you're in windows go download infrarecorder and use that14:10
yeatsJackneill: you should try both and see which one you like better14:11
Jackneilloh okok14:11
bonjoyeeJackneill: or ImgBurn..it has clear labelling as well..14:11
