[00:03] what are some other ways to install so x11 dosnt try to start and im all bugged out.. even terminal view is messed up [00:03] currently I am seeing all joins in empathy [00:03] Cpt_Zyph: i think there is an option to boot with failsafe graphics (vesa ) in the boot menu [00:03] For Netbook Edition, what are the requirement(s) for getting the option to keep in launcher for the sidebar? [00:04] erUSUL, Hey, how do I put one user to work with the "sudo" command? [00:04] erUSUL, by default, in Debian, there is no user who can work with sudo... Understand? [00:04] the_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 screne [00:04] josephseraos: you are in debian? [00:04] erUSUL 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] erUSUL: hold it. what is this list for?

[00:05] Cpt_Zyph: i think the livecd has it in the boot menu [00:05] Sdw195, I suggest you defrag windows xp at least once before installing ubuntu [00:05] Cpt_Zyph: Tough nut, repeat wo my username and see if someone else knows [00:05] humm [00:05] i don't want it so this list is void to me.. [00:06] kv102t: the one that fails is the playonlinux one [00:06] The main sources file is /etc/apt/sources.list, I think. [00:06] Hey 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] how can i stop it looking at this list?

I've mapped it to another key but there are some (rare) cases where I need to use it. [00:12] did you enable usb support when you installed virtualbox? [00:13] MarkAng - My only guess would be video driver related, but that's not much help. [00:13] mzawieska: what version of virtualbox did you install? [00:13] Heh, no. [00:13] erUSUL: deleted all fine now thanks [00:13] Fraxtil, I would remap that key to Shift+CAPS, and leave caps-lock alone [00:13] or vice versa [00:13] hi can anyone help?

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 reported [00:13] But that does sound logically.

Can it play the .IMG file directly? [00:47] probably [00:47] yeah [00:47] if not there should be a codec for it [00:47] ok.. I thought it couldn't.. [00:47] which vlc would prompt you to install [00:48] What config file does gnome (with PulseAudio) use for it's sound configuration? I'm looking for the default balance control settings upon login. [00:48] Hey I need to install x-lite on ubuntu has anyone installed it succesfully? [00:48] great! appreciate the help :-) [00:48] if the img has a valid dvd format in it [00:48] Does anyone know anything about speeding up fans? [00:48] Hey I need to install x-lite on ubuntu with no luck has anyone installed it succesfully? [00:48] :) [00:48] chrislustic, check your BIOS settings [00:48] on boot [00:48] txdv: Likely it has [00:48] press F1 [00:49] wtf is x-lite? [00:49] Nofrillz my fan works fine, I am on an IMAC, and when I boot mac I have my fan upto 3500 rpm, but when I boot linux, it's slow It gets quite hot after a while. [00:49] hmm [00:49] no clue then chris === Commie_Cary is now known as Lenin_Cat [00:50] I just want to speed it up while linux is booted, there are apps Ive read about, but technicality is to much for me I am a linux noob for now, [00:50] nofrillz: google: x-lite [00:50] I've got two problems I could use some help with.. They may be related, I'm not sure. Somehow, I managed to upgrade to Ubuntu 11.04 beta instead of 10.10..what's the best way to rolll back? 2. My diplay is screwed up in an odd way.. Is it horizonal refresh or something easy to fix ( see screen shot here: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/5405758/1/ubuntu-problem?h=984adc ) [00:50] voIP soft phone? [00:51] Do you think my issues are related? [00:51] Chilaquiles: google install x-lite ubuntu [00:51] yes [00:51] (box is Dell Latitude) [00:51] bastidrazor: I already did [00:51] rollback = save files to other location [00:51] reformat [00:51] install 10.10 [00:51] nofrillz: yes is a soft phone [00:51] nofrillz: yes is a soft phone, but is for windows no for linux [00:51] TomV-415: what does 'cat /etc/lsb-release' tell you? [00:51] nofrillz: reformat? [00:52] wow tom v415, in that case I would fresh install 10.10, if you have your stuff, you could also use an archiver to save your stuff [00:52] Chilaquiles, http://www.uluga.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=970373 [00:52] TomV-415: (that will tell you the version you're on) [00:52] TomV-415: you very likely did not upgrade to 11.04 if you went to system/about... .the "about" for ubuntu 11.04, bot accidentally pulled into ubuntu 10.10 a while ago... do what yeats is telling you to confirm your ubuntu version [00:52] package requireed for mail? [00:52] Ubuntu freezes at "Updated DMI GRUB" Any ideas why? I looked into my BIOS because that's the only clue I found in researching [00:53] did you update your grub? [00:53] update-grub in terminal [00:53] ok, anyone around/not busy to talk to me about repos and software sources? [00:53] also, it won't boot from the cd, only flash [00:53] anyone here running ubuntu 10.10 on laptop or imac? [00:53] nofrillz, i cannot see any color bit depth settings anywhere. does anyone have a clue where to look here. i prefer a gui tool, but if i have to i'll edit config files. [00:53] yeats: Hey, you are right! I'm on 10.10, but about tells me I'm on 11.04 beta! DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu [00:53] nofrillz: I know you just searched for it without seeing if the links work, but is too old that there are no links that work [00:53] DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.10 [00:53] DISTRIB_CODENAME=maverick [00:53] DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 10.10" [00:53] TomV-415: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation. [00:53] anything to get working productively again [00:53] KM0201: right you are. Thanks! [00:53] TomV-415: don't flood... thats because the "about" on 10.10 got accidentally screwed up a while ago.. it's not a critical issue. [00:54] any1 have experience with Dropbox? [00:54] KM0201: oops, sorry, will not to that. [00:54] TomV-415: now, we know you're using 10.10... what was the other issue? [00:54] ny51bern, i do, what's up? [00:54] sitescripter, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=268150 [00:54] like for example, for some reason, ubuntu installed "namoroka" over the top of firefox. how do I uninstall that and reload firefox? [00:54] nobody knows why computer freezes at "GRUB" ? [00:55] ny51bern, i'm checkin the link... [00:55] apt-get remove namoroka [00:55] apt-get install firefox [00:55] nofrillz: it says "package not found" [00:55] KM0201: my montior looks horrible now. Take a look a the screen shot to see what I'm seeing. Text renders fine, but there's this very odd pixel stuff by the mouse error, and in the icons. [00:55] sitescripter: having a little issue. My folder syncs on my desktop, but I cant get the icon to get on my top taskbar...therefore, I can't really edit my settings [00:55] I will try it again.. 1 sec [00:55] on which one? [00:55] namoroka? [00:55] nofrillz, i dont' know how i missed that, but i'll take it from here. looks like a bit of reading. thanks. [00:56] np [00:56] TomV-415: i didn't see a screenshot. [00:56] nofrillz: yup, package not found, namoroka [00:56] but its installed, I am looking at it right now [00:56] KM0201: hmmm let me check the link aain. [00:56] namoroka is ff 3.6 [00:56] its a codename [00:56] so i have a small issue with my speakers on my laptop maybe some one can help direct me to the cause of the problem? [00:56] ny51bern, hmm.. can't help you. sorry. maybe dropbox has seen this already? [00:56] nofrillz: yea I would prefer to not use a pre release [00:56] TomV-415: you could try moving/renaming ~/.gnome2, then logging out and logging back in [00:57] TomV-415: sometimes GNOME settings don't work correctly through upgrades [00:57] When I press enter in Mousepad nothing happens. [00:57] I am guessing thats what it is [00:57] I would apt-get remove firefox [00:57] and then purge it [00:57] and then reinstall [00:57] purge it? [00:57] KM0201: Screenshot is here: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/5405758/1/ubuntu-problem?h=984adc, look at the icons and stuff, whic look corrupted.. [00:58] sudo apt-get remove firefox --purge [00:58] yeats: I'll give that a try. thanks. [00:58] i think [00:58] nofrillz: what does that do? [00:58] sitescripter: ive tried looking online a bit. ill keep looking i guess. thanks anyways! [00:58] it removes all traces of the package [00:58] oh ok [00:58] configs etc [00:58] for now i just copy pasted the newline character a bunch of times, but that's silly [00:58] ny51bern, good luck [00:58] and then do apt-get install firefox after? [00:58] could anyone tell me the package i need to end a mail from the cli? [00:58] anyone know how to get the envelope back on the top right next to the clock? [00:58] TomV-415: ugh... i'm not sure on that one... never saw a problem like that... have you tried changing themes? [00:58] *send [00:58] nofrillz, not with all packages, it might still leave .mozilla [00:58] see you all later. i'm out of here for now. [00:58] sorry [00:59] it removes _MOST_ traces of it [00:59] hey all [00:59] I really need to increase my fan speed [00:59] Hi room -anyone know how to get the home page working for Oracle Application Express (Apex) ? I'm running it from Ubuntu 10.04. The database works fine just can't the web front end to work. It should be of the form http://host:port/apex/ but I get a 'could not connect error' [00:59] nofrillz: if I purge it, and then do apt-get install firefox what version would be installed? 3.5 ? [00:59] i dont know [00:59] i have installed firefox in a while [00:59] i suppose I might aswell just try it [00:59] depends where you isntall it from [01:00] rm -rf ~/. as a non root will remove all settings [01:00] Kingsy: apt-cache policy firefox :will tell you what version is available [01:00] Kingsy: did you add the mozilla-daily repository? [01:00] rm -rf ~/.mozilla, sorry [01:00] yeats: nope, not that I know of [01:00] in my sound setting i have no bass treble etc. how can I acess this? [01:00] TomV-415, is that just in your desktop bar [01:00] or is it in everything? [01:00] yeats: I also checked sources.list to see if it was there, and I couldnt see it [01:00] you might have a corrupted theme [01:01] gtk [01:01] or gtk itself might be corrupted [01:01] nofrillz: who me? [01:01] sound is horrible compared to when I boot mac, but there playing out the same speakers, I need to control my sound equalizer. [01:01] i have a laptop with four speakers and one sub the 4 speakers are wired so that the mid and tweet are one set. so the first 4 are working but my sub doesnt work [01:01] not you kingsy [01:01] :) [01:01] I was trying to tell TomV-415 [01:01] nofrillz: no, it's every where.. Like a pixel depth issue. I'm going to try 1. moving ~/.gnome2 then play with themes.. [01:01] but he is ignoring me [01:01] Kingsy: what's the output of 'apt-cache policy firefox'? (paste at http://paste.ubuntu.com and share the link) [01:01] 1 sec [01:01] TomV-415, yeah I would do that [01:01] or save you themes [01:02] is there a diff package i should be getting for samba, apt-get install samba is giving me 404 find errors on the repos [01:02] and just reinstall gtk/gnome [01:02] how do I reinstall gtk/gnome? seems like the cleanest path. [01:02] nofrillz: it helps if you address the person you're talking to with each message ;-) [01:02] sudo apt-get install ? [01:02] agreed, yeats [01:02] yeats: http://pastie.org/1488694 [01:02] hansw in a terminal apt-get remove --purge will remove configs [01:03] aw i had it mixed up [01:03] I actually can't really navigate much with this condition, since icons are illegible.. [01:03] i did apt-get remove --purge [01:03] iflema: cool thanks. [01:03] nofrillz: ditto [01:03] iflema, not for mysql-server, to name one of them [01:03] TomV-415, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop [01:03] nofrillz: will that hose my current session, and when I reboot without gnome, what will I see? [01:04] you will lose some settings [01:04] maybe [01:04] nofrillz: ah, that sounds like a better path... not [01:04] but it should fix your issues [01:04] but the closest to get a new gtk desktop might be to create the account again [01:04] It took a bit of work, but I managed to manually add what I was after following http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=9910899&postcount=4 . Needed to create/edit a few files to add something to Unity which wouldn't be added normally. [01:04] nofrillz: Ok, I'll do that now. [01:04] yeats: any thoughts? [01:04] anyone know of a program that or webapp that is good for server maitnace, like a check list or form, to check what has been done or neesd to be done then it create short report [01:04] going offline.. thanks you guys a real wealth of knowledge and helpfulness here! Thanks!! [01:05] np [01:05] goodluck [01:05] :-) [01:05] might any one know what my problem lies in [01:05] Geekman, I have no clue about sound configuration [01:05] as for GRUB, I'm reinstalling from a flash drive that successfully installed on another computer [01:06] i just install alsa and im on my way [01:06] nofrillz its cool maybe some one else knows [01:06] although I tried this once already... could it be a bad mobo? Would a near-dead CMOS battery cause GRUB freeze? [01:06] Someone who have experience of booting via GRUB? I 've tried a cpuple of times the past hour and finds unetbootin but when I choose to "install lubuntu" it startes ubuntu instead. [01:06] Kingsy: have you tried the suggestion of deleting/moving your ~/.mozilla folder, then restarting firefox? [01:07] yeats: no, tbh I don't really know what the issue is, I was hoping someone could explain, don't I need to remove the application and re-install it to rollback the version? [01:07] suqa: a live disc will boot and then let you install [01:08] hunterbukowski: cd is no option unfortenatly [01:08] Sometimes when I restart my computer, my top panel gets messed up and I'm missing some of its components..any ideas? [01:08] can you use a flash drive? [01:08] No, my BOIS doesn't support it. [01:08] Got to do everything via GRUB. [01:08] Kingsy: I have not seen Firefox be renamed like that unless I added the mozilla daily repo [01:08] suqa: if you have it installed correctly you can change the default boot with startup-manager https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StartUpManager [01:08] yeats: i.e should I try the apt-get remove firefox --purge option? and then apt-get install firefox? or will that just re-install namoroka? [01:09] ugh [01:09] suqa: I'm not familiar with network installs, but that sounds like your only option [01:09] I've figured out how to speed up my fan but... [01:09] the process is... [01:09] Kingsy: it *should* reinstall firefox [01:09] complex. [01:09] http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=42737 [01:09] I think I got this problem: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1650025 ....any ideas? [01:09] USB should work. I find unetbootin. [01:09] !enter | chrislustic [01:09] chrislustic: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line - don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation! [01:09] yeats: ok let me test that out [01:09] Kingsy: you might try moving your .mozilla folder first though [01:09] nofrillz: I know you just searched for it without seeing if the links work, but is too old that there are no links that work [01:09] yeats: why? just curious? [01:09] Kingsy: that folder contains all your personal settings [01:10] Hey I need to install x-lite on ubuntu with no luck has anyone installed it succesfully? [01:10] suqa: you said your BIOS doesn't support booting from USB..? [01:10] ah, ok [01:10] Kingsy: there may be something in there that got borked along the way [01:10] .. [01:10] suqa: I'm confused [01:11] Hunderbukowski: No, so I have to do it via GRUB. And i succed to boot from my USB that way. But when choosing an option in the menu "install" "test" "memory test" etc it starts ubuntu anywat [01:11] Hunterbukowski: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootFromUSB [01:11] suqa: but you can't install it after it starts? [01:11] hey I'm trying to setup my ubuntu machines to print onto my windows shared printer. I set it all up. I watch it send a 127k file when I'm printing a test page, on the windows machine that 127k file stops at 64k and the file size keeps increasing. It was 64k/50MB by the time I purged the queue. Any Ideas, it won't print from ubuntu? [01:12] hunterbukowski: Exactly! It starts Ubuntu instead of lubuntu. But there is only the ubuntu logo who is loading, the system dont start. [01:12] jags: are you using cups? [01:12] no, I tried both the cups and the recommended driver. They both did the same thing [01:13] suqa: oh, ok, so it freezes on startup? [01:13] Yeah, ubuntu is not suppose to start, but it starts and freex. [01:13] jags: It's been a looong time, but I got cups to work after researching in the forums [01:14] HunterBukowski, ok thanks I'll do some searches [01:14] yeats: looks like that worked :) [01:14] Kingsy: great! [01:14] Can anyone tell me my mouse ID from the output of xinput list? (http://pastebin.com/L9cVXVLL) [01:14] yeats: I don't really get why it happened in the first place tho [01:15] i see three possible ones, but I don't know which one to choose [01:15] Cpu breaking when hovering IRC-client. How fix it [01:15] suqa: did you check the MD5 on the (l)ubuntu file, or try redownloading it and putting it on your flash drive again? [01:15] will check md5 now. [01:15] still having issues with my display. I think I have gotten a bit closer to the issue. I think I need an NVidia 3rd party driver that may not be available for 10.10..

[01:17] now that I have an idea of my issue (nvidia driver, I'll do a bit of googling..) [01:18] Kingsy: if you move that folder out of the way, it sometimes solves the problems (though you lose your bookmarks/settings) [01:18] Is lubuntu using ubuntus logo? [01:18] Jamaican_Linux_F: is it seeing other networks(than the one you've entered) [01:18] suqa: lubuntu is ubuntu just a different set of packages [01:18] suqa: might still be worth reinstalling on the flash drive, and/or using a different USB port if possible, also check your BIOS [01:19] sacarlson: I know [01:19] lately my Lucid hangup. why [01:19] HunterBukowski: I'll try that [01:19] induz, no idea without more details [01:19] suqa: there for it will look the same [01:19] when i open 2-3 windows, it hangs up [01:19] yeats: ah right i SEE [01:19] But i can see all files who are suppose to be in the USB-stick via GRUB. [01:19] see* [01:19] induz, how much ram [01:19] how do i know how much RAM? [01:20] I think its 1 GB [01:20] induz, type free in a terminal [01:20] sacarlson: So the ubuntu-logo is actually lubuntu trying to boot (loading files)? [01:20] suqa: that sounds probable [01:20] Seems quite reasonly because it is usb 1.1 [01:20] extra slow [01:20] bazhang, here; [01:20] suqa: you did check the system requirements, right?

That's a pretty low number for anything [01:22] It was all ok running fine but lately since 2-3 days it hangs up [01:22] As support for i586 chipsets has been dropped from the kernel for the 10.10 series (These include VIA C3, AMD K6, National Semiconductor and AMD Geode) [01:22] hunterbukowski: RAM.

[01:24] WIll give xubuntu a try now then. === Stalin is now known as Lenin_Cat [01:24] induz, 75% of your mem is free [01:24] suqa, with that little ram lubuntu would be a better bet [01:25] But I'll have to download 10.04 because of " As support for i586 chipsets has been dropped from the kernel for the 10.10 series (These include VIA C3, AMD K6, National Semiconductor and AMD Geode)" and Iäve got a VIA chipset?

[01:26] can traceroute show which nameserver ? [01:26] bazhang: yes. [01:26] justin___, why it hangs then [01:26] CooKieMonster: no [01:26] suqa: as bazhang said, lubuntu is another option, but yes, try xubuntu with xfce or something more compact like DSL [01:26] suqa, xubuntu wont be much different from Ubuntu as far as ram usage [01:26] Yes, but 10.10 or 10.04? [01:26] Its happening when i use my USB drive [01:26] right now I am not using it [01:27] HunterBukowski, please lets stick to recommending Ubuntu products here [01:27] induz, not sure but ram usage is not your problem [01:27] suqa, 10.10 [01:27] is it caz of VirtualBox, but i am not usiing Vbox [01:27] induz, what video card, which driver [01:27] bazhang: But it says it dont suport VIA and I've got a VIA chipset. [01:28] I am not using video card bazhang [01:28] suqa: I would get the 10.04 [01:28] induz, sure you are [01:28] cookiemonster,$ cat /etc/resolv.conf [01:28] bazhang, I dont know if this comp has a video card [01:28] sacarlson: Ok, I'll give 10.04 a try [01:28] suqa: or, you could try an older version of ubuntu-- 7, 8, 9 [01:28] how do u flush dns in terminal [01:28] induz, you're using X, correct? [01:28] I am just using a LCD Dell monitor [01:29] what is X bazhang [01:29] HunterBukowski, almost all of those are unsupported [01:29] no4: something "renew" I think [01:29] hunterbukowski: But how is it with the hardware support then? VIA isn't running thar smooth under linux... [01:29] bazhang, i am using Lucid [01:29] how do people have such cool looking panels in ubuntu? [01:29] induz, you have a graphical desktop, correct? [01:29] induz: do 'lspci | grep VGA' to find out your video card [01:30] suqa: I'm not sure, but that is a potential problem... you may have to try several different distros/versions to see what your computer can handle [01:30] yeats, lspci | grep VGA [01:30] 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 82915G/GV/910GL Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 04) [01:30] Im up to xubuntu right now [01:30] bazhang: ^^ [01:30] Ubuntu 10.10 did support all my hardware from scratch.

I think poff works for you because you are using wvdial, that uses pppd [02:23] mister_m: same reason some people can connect through wicd, but not gnome-network-manager... i admit, i have no idea [02:23] josephseraos: I connects using pon itself, might be that is the reason [02:23] KM0201, that is upsetting - because I want to get on my wireless from the awesome wm [02:24] pksadiq, Yes. Maybe [02:24] Hey everyone. Weird issue here. I have a server that I can SSH into when the PCI video card is installed, but when I remove the card, and boot the computer, I can't SSH into the server. Any ideas why? [02:24] pksadiq, Hey man, I gotta go now. Here is 11:25 pm [02:24] josephseraos: you might try ifconfig down usb0 [02:24] I have to wake up at 6 am [02:25] how to change DNS address in wvdial [02:25] josephseraos: yeah ok, sorry as no destinations reached [02:25] Amacidia: sure it boots correctly ones the card is removed? [02:25] pksadiq, I tried ifconfig usb0 down, and didn't work [02:25] Amacidia: *once [02:25] KM0201, is there an alternative version of the gnome network manager that I would be able to use that isn't called wicd? [02:25] pksadiq, no problem. You helped me a lot [02:26] dismo: hey, not sure, I can ping the box, thats about it. [02:26] pksadiq, have a nice night. See you! [02:26] mister_m: not that i am aware of.. i don't understand the problem, you connect fine through the gnome-network manager, right? [02:26] KM0201, not an alternative version, but an alternative piece of software [02:26] KM0201, yes [02:26] josephseraos: k [02:26] KM0201, but wicd fails no matter what [02:26] mister_m: so...? whats the problem, just use gnome-network-manager? [02:26] @ mister_m: are both of them installed simultaneously? [02:26] KM0201, I can't use the gnome one from the awesome wm [02:27] pksadiq, Tomorrow I'll here again [02:27] oh..hmm [02:27] pksadiq, gool luck! [02:27] good* [02:27] why don't you use cli utils [02:27] Amacidia: maybe your network card is set in bios for network booting. this way it would be "pingable" [02:27] yaa [02:27] mister_m, then connect manually [02:27] josephseraos: I have college tomorrow, then so next 26th [02:28] bazhang, hwo [02:28] dismo: Correct it is. So I'm not sure why the system is not booting up correctly if I remove the card. Possibly udev ?

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 i [02:38] nstalled on it says the boot record is invalid?

[03:24] nofrillz, oh really? my mobo it only takes a few seconds [03:24] !cn > lushous [03:24] lushous, please see my private message [03:24] @Rothsdad No, the only iPhone sdk is for Mac OSX [03:24] okee, wait a maximum of 15 minutes then insert you battery again [03:24] Are you serious? I really have to remove the battery? [03:24] Thats awfull. [03:24] okee, yes.... [03:24] oh! no ....i got a trouble [03:24] rww: whats the channel for india [03:24] doomrobo: pity [03:24] thauriswulfa: /join #ubuntu-in [03:25] well the understood default time to wait to guarantee the reset is 15 minutes [03:25] rww:thanx [03:25] i am from china [03:25] it varies from mobo to mobo [03:25] okee, listen to nofrillz he's right [03:25] what is the channel for ubuntu Djibouti? [03:25] so if I just don't reboot for 15 minutes after installing, I should be ok without removing the cmos battery? [03:25] lushous dont understand english [03:25] bye ! i hope to see you again [03:25] no [03:25] thats the reason why the battery is there [03:25] okee: remove the powerplug as well [03:25] so even if its off [03:26] the battery still feeds power to it [03:26] Sonja: It would be #ubuntu-dj, but there apparently aren't enough Ubuntu users for that country to maintain a channel. [03:26] slight problem...why can't i see the .rar files extracted in xubuntu? [03:26] thats why things like wakeonlan is possible [03:26] any help with web server index.html not showing? (sorry got disconnected) [03:26] i think !i am fall in love with Ubuntu! [03:26] Naeblis: are you using rar-free or rar-nonfree? [03:26] ubuntu djibouti gets no love :( [03:26] lushous: if you do, you'd better sign a prenup [03:26] I installed with no battery -- just a power plug. So you want me to remove the cmos battery/ [03:26] ?? [03:27] dismo: err..not sure. their's this archive manager which is pre-installed and is showing the files.but when i extract it, the folder is empty [03:27] !who | okee [03:27] okee: 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 :) === mbvpixies78 is now known as HunterBukowski === brian is now known as Guest47661 [03:27] anyone know any irc channels for Ubuntu web server config? [03:27] dismo:also downloaded unrar-free from the terminal, but im not sure how to make it work [03:27] ufu [03:28] Naeblis: probably using the free version then. install the non-free version [03:28] mbvpixies78: so, you get a 404 when trying to view index.html? [03:28] HunterBukowski: that's ontopic for here or #ubuntu-server [03:28] rww, I was looking for my conversation. And I found it. Thank you very much [03:28] I am confused and not sure what to do. Someone said something about a battery. Perhaps they should IM me? [03:28] Naeblis: uninstall the free version. then you should be fine [03:28] mprince: no, I get the annoying "It works!" even though it just showed my edited index for a bit [03:28] josephseraos: you're welcome [03:28] Ok folks I'm confuse man ls shows -d should list directories. I have tried variations on -d like -ad (all directories?) and I don't get output like I would expect. I mean if I'm at / and issue ls -d I should see many directories. What am I missing? [03:28] dismo:I'll try [03:28] OT: anyone know a good ER modelling tool for ubuntu/ [03:29] rww: kk, now if I can get it figured out... [03:29] mellin: "ls -d" is for listing dictionaries themselves, rather than the contents of dictionaries. You perhaps want ls -R? [03:29] directories ** [03:29] mellin: (There aren't that many directories directly off /, so I'm assuming you want to recurse.) [03:30] HunterBukowski: did you edit httpd.conf? [03:30] rww: Ok got it..as usual operator error. Thanks though [03:30] 3mprince: not on this computer, no don't think so [03:30] rww: Actuall what I want to accomplish is just list all directories in a given path [03:31] mprince: any advice? [03:31] *Actually* [03:31] mellin: find / -type d [03:31] assuming you want subdirectories too [03:31] mprince: where is httpd.conf? I've never messed with it before [03:31] HunterBukowski: so where did you put your edited page? [03:32] mprince: /var/www [03:32] HunterBukowski: http://www.centos.org/docs/5/html/Deployment_Guide-en-US/s1-apache-config.html [03:32] dismo: removed unrar-free, now i'm getting the message that archive not supported.should i just install unrar? [03:32] HunterBukowski: hold on, this is ubuntu [03:32] I was about to say... [03:33] Naeblis: unrar-nonfree it's in the restricted repos i think [03:33] multiverse, actually [03:33] HunterBukowski: so inside of /var/www you created an index.html? [03:34] HunterBukowski: what do you see when you go to http:/index.html [03:34] mprince: yeah, well, there was already one there. I edited it, it showed up fine in Firefox, then suddenly back to generic it works page... could it be because I had the file still open in command prompt? [03:34] What command can I use to find out the name of another command. e.g. I want to find out the command to start open office writer [03:35] HunterBukowski: good info here: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/httpd.html [03:35] rww: even worse then ;-) [03:35] $ firefox, how can i access that remote? [03:36] dismo: not really. the stuff in restricted and multiverse is equally non-free, restricted is just stuff that Ubuntu considers a "necessary" evil. drivers and so forth. === mbvpixies78 is now known as HunterBukowski [03:36] mprince: I just tried the index address in windows (different comp) and get a time-out [03:37] rww: i know but i had very bad experiences with multiverse and restricted is afaik "only" closed source [03:37] mprince: let me look at what you shared [03:37] dismo:success. thanks!!

[03:39] mprince: it works perfectly from localhost/index.html (but not localhost) [03:39] how would i get my hostname on here to be my domain? [03:40] Jreko: set up rDNS for your IP address. Considering that it looks like you're using a charter.com DHCP assignment, this is unlikely to happen :\ [03:40] why [03:41] Jreko: because consumer ISPs don't generally do custom rDNS [03:41] i cant use dyndns? [03:42] Jreko: dyndns doesn't own your IP address, Charter does. [03:42] Jreko, that's (forward) dns, not reverse === danny__ is now known as Danny78 [03:42] Anyone have experience getting digest authentication to work with apache2.2? basic authentication works fine for me, but I can't figure out why digest isnt' working (the user/pass i put in the htdigest file doesn't work). i'm not sure what could be going on. i have a feeling it has to do with the "realm" and "domain" but finding inconsistent answers across the web [03:42] to get your domain to show, your ip has to resolve to it and it has to resolve to your ip [03:42] mprince: Hunter here, from Ubuntuland.

[04:11] does ubuntu netbook remix run poorly for anybody else on netbook hardware (1.6ghz atom, 1gb ram, intel gfx) while desktop edition runs great? [04:12] Roasted: Yes. 11.04 is better in that regard; uses Compiz instead of Mutter. [04:12] DaGeek247 ye its enabled, i even see the ubuntu under DHCP clients list with IP and time with mac address... [04:12] mudit1141: I assume it used to work.

[04:21] ok so even tho i added the option on install "xforcevesa" nothing changed from a normal install.. so now im in the counsole on recovery mode..

[04:22] Danny78, thanks [04:22] mykal: np [04:23] Cpt_Zyph: sudo Xorg -configure should do the trick [04:23] mudit1141: not sure what messed it up.

Is there any evidence of bad support (not everything is supported = blame manufacturers) for it on ubuntuforumns, google and the like?? [04:32] ntfs is best windows s. gparted supports i [04:32] alguien me lee? [04:32] lemme try [04:32] hole_: a dvd iso can be up to 8.5G, more or less... [04:32] becasue xorg.conf did not solve me problme.. humm [04:32] is there a graphical web browswer for console linux? [04:33] Cpt_Zyph: why do you want vesa mode? [04:33] Jreko: links2 is good.

[04:43] I have a Brother MFC-7840 all in one laser printer, scanner, copier, and fax, and brother makes deb packages for the drivers. The scanner works just fine but the printer will start to print the page normally and then part of the way through it will streak a random line of pixels down the rest of the page and then print out lots of blank pages after it. Ive had this issue for quite some time and have wondered if this is some known issue o [04:43] Cpt_Zyph: ah then i misunderstood. it's not in grub. boot in recovery mode. [04:43] dismo my options are 2 ubuntu entrys.. one is recovery mode and the other 2 are memory tests.. i can hit c to go to command line or e to edit the commands [04:43] Cpt_Zyph: then it will give you the option safe graphics mode. not sure if this is the correct name [04:43] has ubottu turned into Dr Suess [04:43] dismo ok ill go to recovery mode [04:44] dismo understood thanks for the direction trying now [04:44] Cpt_Zyph: select ubuntu recovery mode [04:44] Cpt_Zyph: it should give you a 16 colour menu to choose from [04:44] dismo : yea runs on win just fine all 3d stuff laggs badly in linux mode i just use linux to surf the net safely without having to worry about malware on the net [04:45] linux can get malware too [04:45] * Loshki wonders what a 'loler with minions' is. Some kind of casserole, perhaps? [04:45] but anyway I love ubuntu, can't wait for new version [04:45] rlinuxguy3: y. but it's less likely. [04:45] way less [04:45] hole_ linux is more than tht. if you just want safe internet browsing, get n internet vm [04:46] i know its way more than that i've used linux exclusively for years till recently wanting to get back into games [04:47] Loshki : "sudo apt-get install oneko; oneko" and find out [04:47] QUESTION: 512mb ram enough for ubuntu ? [04:47] thauriswulfa: yes [04:47] thauriswulfa: yes, xfce desktop at least [04:48] thauriswulfa: the more the better though [04:48] i was thinking about installing osx on it though my bro has a still shrinkwrapped copy of snowleapard ipc [04:48] !requirements > thauriswulfa [04:48] thauriswulfa, please see my private message [04:48] LinuxGuy2009: I have the same printer and don't have that issue printing from Ubuntu 10.10 [04:48] rww: what are you saying? [04:49] disomo im in the rescure mode and there is no such option ? [04:49] dismo : looks like it worked as always your help was much appreciated [04:49] ok, 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 chrome [04:49] dismo i know on older ubuntu even feodra distros there was a install with vesa options but.. atm im stuck [04:49] thauriswulfa: messages in #ubuntu beginning with ! are usually instructions to ubottu (the channel bot) to send information. [04:50] dismo 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 something [04:50] aaronb_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] thauriswulfa: it depends on what you intend to do... I'm typing this message to you on a laptop running 512MB with Ubuntu 10.10 [04:51] aaronb_houstx: BTW is yours setup for local USB or network printing? [04:51] LinuxGuy2009: network printing, scanning, et. al. [04:51] aaronb_houstx: cool [04:51] aaronb_houstx: so you mean 512 not enough for things like compiling [04:51] Cpt_Zyph: did you edit xorg.conf after generating it?

[05:22] thefinn931: how'd you get that output without her machine working? [05:22] KM0201: it's already installed. see the history of me and Cpt_Zyph [05:22] she manually typed it in [05:23] pls help me [05:23] dismo: from the looks of it, he/she is trying to install ubuntu 10.04 right? [05:23] anyone knows how to fix "autoaudiosink is missing"? | mention spontator in answer if you know [05:23] KM0201: as far as i understood even with the alt s/he had to use some kernel parameter to make video work [05:23] Us3r_Unfriendly: she manually typed it [05:23] hmm [05:23] KM0201: 10.04 or 10.10 don't know [05:23] dismo: what is her graphics device? [05:23] dismo: well, trying to read that horrible pic, is 10.04. [05:24] GabrielYYZ: try gstreamer-properties [05:24] hey guys could someone explain to me why it is that even though I have a wired connection, when I turn my box off and back on again that I have to powercycle my router for my connection to be seen? When I did ifconfig it told me that the nic was not config'd and when I tried to do ifdown/ifup it tells me that it failed to bring up the iface. However, powercycle the router and works like a... [05:24] ...charm. Any suggestions? [05:24] KM0201: some nvidia [05:24] GabrielYYZ: don't repeat questions that other people asked, please. repeating every two minutes is too often regardless of how many people get conscripted to do it :\ [05:24] i can't imagine why any nvidia device would give a display like that... unless it's something that just came out yesterday [05:25] i wan to create a mobile phone application using java, what are all the s/w that i need to install? [05:25] how do i log in? [05:25] i want to create a mobile phone application using java, what are all the s/w that i need to install? [05:25] LaNc3R: to what? [05:25] backtrack [05:25] thefinn931: yes...okay so it's not mounting for some reason. the number one on your pastebin looks like that would be the root cause for all that problems. can't mount your partition with ubuntu. now would this be a grub issue??? [05:25] jimisrvrox: are you using dhcp or static ips? [05:25] LaNc3R: type /join #backtrack-linux [05:25] LaNc3R: why do you keep trying to get backtrack support here?.. you've been told about 40 gazillion times, its not supported here [05:25] afaik static.. [05:26] Us3r_Unfriendly: i doubt it... [05:26] thefinn931: i wonder if it is a grub issue that she could reinstall it and update it...it might work [05:26] jimisrvrox: You better describe your hardware setup more precisely. And mention what error message you obtain when you want your connection to be seen. [05:26] Us3r_Unfriendly: she'd like to keep her files [05:26] thefinn931: well then the question is how to mount a drive at boot up [05:27] What is an "Album grid view" with Banshee? See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banshee_%28media_player%29 [05:27] yes [05:27] jimisrvrox: you can check. right click on nm-applet then options -> etc. [05:27] bullgard4: I dont get any error messages...but when I do ifdown/ifup on my wired connection to bring the iface back up then I get failed to bring eth1 up not configured.. [05:27] ubottu: tell LaNc3R about register [05:27] dismo, Can you help with autoaudiosink? [05:27] i want to create a mobile phone application using java, what are all the s/w that i need to install? [05:27] LaNc3R, please see my private message [05:27] ubottu: tell LaNc3R about topic [05:28] thefinn931: well that's a easy fix to get it working again but means using the ubuntu cd to copy files from the hard drive to a portable usb device and then to reinstall the os. But i want to know how to fix it without that. hmm [05:28] dismo: I dislike using nm-applet :) in fact it irritates me that I even have to do a gnome session when I like to run openbox :) [05:28] jimisrvrox: so you use /etc/network? [05:28] thefinn931: grub decides what to boot up. your init should decide what you boot into [05:28] jimisrvrox: then check there [05:29] hello, I have 2 ubuntu 10.10 installs on different computers, one of them is playing my mp4's fine (mplayer, VLC, Movie Player), the other one only plays my mp4 (same exact file) file with VLC but mplayer gives me a bunch of "Error on MB: 0" [05:29] I think at one point I even tried to do /etc/init.d/networking restart to see if the interface would come back and no dice but the minute I powercycle my router I get a connection..and this is happening for both wired and wireless connections that I have.. [05:29] not quite sure what is going on [05:29] thefinn931: well inittab, but ubuntu doesn't use that anymore [05:29] the mp4 movie also works fine on a windows machine [05:29] jimisrvrox: Does "eth1" designate a wireless interface? [05:29] bullgard4: no for whatever reason my system says its eth1 instead of eth0..either way the name on the iface should not prevent it from connecting.. [05:29] spontator: not really. i can just tell you the usual stuff. [05:30] !sound | spontator [05:30] spontator: If you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings. If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files, see !players and !mp3. [05:30] anyone know a good spot to buy psybnc and use my domain name? [05:30] Akuma: on the machine that isn't working, did you install all the codecs; gstreamer and ubuntu restricted?

Thus all I can advice is that you scrutinize your dmesg log. [05:31] LaNc3R: this isn't backtrack though [05:31] LaNc3R: /msg nickserv identify nickservpasswordgoeshere [05:32] anyone know a good spot to buy psybnc and use my domain name?

[05:37] hello all [05:37] Us3r_Unfriendly: I'm gotten my friend on IRC. could you give her like step by step n00b instructions? (i can do it if not, it's just that you seem to better understand this stuff) [05:37] Akuma: i believe it's a codec issue... [05:37] gpg -e -r myjunkid junkfolder does not encrypt the file...Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong ? [05:37] so do I, but I don't know how to fix it... how do I get synaptic to actually see the restricted package? [05:37] it's not appearing in my package list for install [05:38] thefinn931: with what? sorry but i g2g for a sec [05:38] thefinn931: i'll be back to help though [05:38] alright [05:38] thanks [05:38] I 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] ezy: 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. [05:39] rww, I tried it on a text file and still I can read the file without decrypting [05:40] ezy: what command are you using for the text file? [05:41] ezy: oh, another thing... gpg just writes to standard output by default. if you want to write to a file, use gpg -o [05:41] rww, ah ok...I will do it that way [05:42] rww, thanks a bunch [05:43] masai47: you can use NFS to export user home dir's from your server, then mount homes on client workstations... login credentials can be centralized with LDAP or other directory [05:44] join #ubuntu-cn [05:44] aaronb_houstx: But if the server is not online what happens with the clients? [05:46] hi all. i'm running natty alpha 1 on my second pc and it's been offering a partial upgrade for about 4 days now with heaps of updated packages not selected in the update list. anyone else experiencing the same? usually the partial upgrade things goes away quicker than that [05:46] axp2: Natty discussion and support in #ubuntu+1 [05:46] thanks rww [05:46] hey how come whe ni install some apps like xterm etc theres no shortcuts being created in menu's ? [05:47] Us3r_Unfriendly: I installed restriced on the box, but mplayer and movie player are still displaying junk when playing the mp4 video, audio still works fine [05:47] masai47: then no home dir's and no centralized logon... [05:47] #debian banned the word ubuntu :\ is sad [05:47] and I still get the "Error at MB: 0" message [05:47] masai47: it's probably too much trouble to go through if it's going to be a temporary/unstable resource [05:48] ubunturocks: 1) #debian doesn't support Debian derivatives, just like #ubuntu doesn't support (unofficial) Ubuntu derivatives. 2) #debian is offtopic for #ubuntu ;P [05:48] still doesn't make it right they ban the word ubuntu [05:48] its supposed to be a good resource but I am unsure about long term techincal support [05:49] My system76 Starling won't boot. After GRUB I get http://pastebin.com/sTSdMLkw then a busybox prompt. I'm something of a n00b in this and don't even know what most of this means. Please go easy~ [05:50] masai47: 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 offline [05:50] makes me sad to have to inflict pain onto my pc but i need to install windows xp but need to do it so doesnt stop my ubuntu from booting [05:51] I"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] Akuma: then it's a codec issue [05:52] aaronb_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 wro [05:52] Us3r_Unfriendly: yea, any idea what I can do to fix it? no quite sure where to look at this point [05:52] deeeerp: By the numbers, did you check the MD5sum?

[06:04] the directory shortcuts that are generated when installing wine, is this a feature that was added to the ubuntu wine package..? [06:04] gnewb: So, what do I do now?

[06:07] gnewb: My files are safe though, right?

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] boolcrap: That usually works, yes. [06:20] kanupatar: Did you check the Freenode log, is the screen at log in to the server? [06:21] dublued2: is your manually-assigned IP in the same subnet? can you ping the Linksys router's inside LAN IP address? [06:21] so: 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] dublued2: if you gave an ip in the same subnet..you should be able to connect without issues! [06:22] Hi. 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] aaronb_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 browser [06:22] bonjoyee: yes it's the same subnet [06:23] nope.. [06:23] dublued2: so where's the issue? [06:23] dublued2: which system has the resources and which can't see? [06:24] kanapatar: The server names and numbers are listed there. [06:25] so 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 won [06:25] the nas unless it gets an ip address automatically from the router [06:27] dublued2: are you accessing resources via IP address or DNS names? [06:29] I have 4 gig ram, and I installed ubuntu 64bit, but when I type free it shows Mem: 3090168 and Swap: 4805628 [06:29] sjuxax: That is like a pirate question, is unsupported here. [06:29] why isnt Mem: 4gig ? [06:29] aaronb_houstx: in the manual settings, i put in the following info: ip: ; subnet mask:, gateway: ; primary dns: [06:30] dublued2: you've power cycled everything? Starting with the linksys.... [06:30] Loshki: yes [06:32] dublued2: then I can't explain it. It should work with a legal ip address whether it's within the DHCP range or not...

[06:50] plustax: ah, well there are some newer howtos than that one - note the date on it [06:50] right [06:51] alpha_centauri: it's too old for that. [06:51] well is it worth tooling with? [06:51] but easy_e17.sh is the correct utility to use [06:51] Loshki: it's too old for that. [06:51] gnea or should I just forget about it? It worth it? [06:51] plustax: oh, it's worth it [06:51] Loshki: also checked smart. drive is healthy [06:51] hmm [06:51] Does the version prior to 10.10 also crash if installed on a hard disk? I am only able to get Ubuntu to work from CD. [06:51] well I have that utility installed [06:51] it just doesnt do shit [06:51] there is no "safe graphics" [06:51] in recovery [06:51] I can't get 10.10 to boot. [06:51] Loshki: also tried disabling write cache via hdparm. didn't help. [06:52] just resume clean dpkg grub netroot root [06:52] I did everything it told me to do. I logged out and chose e17 no problems [06:52] ubuntu 10.04 is more stable than ubuntu 10.10 [06:52] and it lookssss like nothing [06:52] haha [06:52] Now they tell me. Ok. I will burn 10.04. 10.10 shouldn't have even been released. [06:52] Does 10.04 install to a hard disk? [06:52] Gnea: so your saying they don't do releases? [06:52] plustax: well, clearly the e17 session that you choose didn't load up e17 [06:52] right [06:52] Gnea: or snapshots [06:53] okee, do you get the grub menu, or s this a cd [06:53] *is [06:53] well im a linux moron so I have no chance of undoing what I did and actually successfully installing this Gnea [06:53] so: 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) [06:53] alpha_centauri: they've been working on e17 so long now that it's become rather routine to just snag the latest snapshot and hope for the best... if you update every few days, eventually you get a version that actually works [06:53] When you say grub menu, are you referring from a hard drive? Or from CD? [06:53] log says UnloadModule: synaptics" [06:53] alpha_centauri: what model is the drive? [06:53] Logitech USB optical mouse:close [06:53] I don't get anything from a hard drive. After installing, it won't boot up for the first time -- big mess. [06:53] okee, have you installed Ubuntu? [06:54] Gnea: pardon me but that doesn't sound like stable software for me. [06:54] alpha_centauri: and at this stage, it's such a stable dev that it just about passes... but this is the rasterman we're talking about :) [06:54] Loshki: samsung. do you need more info? [06:54] Actually updating is what causes problems. I run win XP 32-bit pro and have the same installation on my computer for no less than three years. It is a 190gb installation. [06:55] alpha_centauri: I'm not trying to sell you on the idea, I'm just trying to put to rest your claim based on a minute amount of data [06:55] i cant even get it to install lol [06:55] I installed ubuntu no less than 5 times today and the installation program for 10.10 shouldn't have been released. it is an alpha to say the least, and that is no exageration. [06:55] im trying to chmod 1777 /tmp/.X11-unix but [06:55] is 10.10 not a functioning version of ubuntu? [06:55] okee, so when you installed it I assume you have here was it from the Ubuntu cd booted to a Live Ubuntu Desktop? [06:55] it just stays at 3777 [06:55] minixking: not as much as 10.04 is [06:55] I am running ubuntu from CD and works ok. it is the installer that has major issues. [06:55] how do I mount a cd drive at command line? [06:55] Gnea: i wasn't claiming. i was just guessing :-) [06:56] gnea; is my problem not common? i mean are there other ppl that cant even get it to go past the wobi install? === RobBeane|Away is now known as RobBeane [06:56] wubi [06:56] minixking: wubi, TBPH, sucks as far as a permanent install goes. if you like it enough, you should install it to its own partition [06:56] I do not have this problem [06:56] alpha_centauri: yes, output of 'sudo hdparm -I /dev/sda' pasted to http://goo.gl/ixcN9 please [06:57] minixking: also, I have no idea what caused your original error with the .iso file [06:57] gnea: i havent even got it to the point where i can try it yet [06:57] I will try using 10.04 tomorrow. I tried SUSE earlier today and it was a big disappointment. SUSE KDE used to work really well with windows. It locks up and crashes and the wireless connectoid don't work. I suspect gnome would work better on SUSE. [06:57] gnea: thats all i wanted to do was try it and i cannot even get that far [06:57] @chovynz mount -t iso9660 /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0/ [06:57] 10.10 seems a bit slow as well. [06:57] minixking: well what method are you using to install it? [06:57] rootx: what does -t iso9660 do? [06:58] I have a 2.6 ghz processor on here and this is a very robust laptop. [06:58] -t[ype]? [06:58] gnea: just as the website says [06:58] okee: single core? how much ram? [06:58] the problem i guess is taht [06:58] gnea: clicking the links they gave me [06:58] minixking: could you please be more specific? [06:58] is that /tmp/.X11-unix is not 1777 [06:58] i tried to chmod it but [06:58] 'it wont go to 1777 wtf :( [06:59] I have dual core, and 2gb of ram. I haven't gotten around to buying 8gb. I was looking for 8gb stick on one stick or really cheap 2 4gb modules. My laptop holds 16gb. I have a Thinkpad w510. [06:59] boolcrap: did you ls -l it? I didn't see anything. [06:59] gnea: wubi, it says click here to install, i do that, it spends well over an hour dl'ing the iso that i already have dl'ed b4 gets to about 15min remaining and shows that error [06:59] i did stat [06:59] Loshki: i can't since i'm not able to access the machine right now. it's 500gb samsung 7200rpm (i think it's this one: HD502IJ) [06:59] theres nothing in that folder [06:59] I bought the laptop with the cheapest memory configuration because buying ram from IBM is twice the price of what you would pay at Fry's or elsewhere. [06:59] minixking: is your windows user account administrator? [07:00] gnea: yes [07:00] okee: I would stick with 10.04 for now then, might even try kubuntu if you prefer kde [07:00] rootx: only root can do that. after sudoing it, it says mount point /media/cdrom0/ does not exist [07:01] boolcrap: ah, try: ls -ld on it [07:02] so: 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) [07:02] drwsrwsrwt 7 root /tmp [07:02] would I mkdir /media/cdrom0 first? [07:02] boolcrap: like this: ld -ld /tmp/.X11_unix [07:03] actually it should work if I just take off teh 0 [07:03] ld cannot find -ld [07:04] rootx: ok so the removal of zero worked. now it says mount : special device /dev/hdc does not exist [07:04] boolcrap: sorry, should be ls not ld [07:04] boolcrap: ls -l /tmp/.X11_unix [07:04] ld: cannot find -l/tmp/.X11-unix/ [07:05] that directory exists [07:05] ada orang indonesia [07:05] boolcrap: listen to what I am saying (or read, as the case is): ls -ld /tmp/.X11_unix and paste everything that it outputs, please. [07:06] sorry :( [07:06] theres nothing in that folder [07:06] is it possible that I have to install some support for a cdrom before I can mount it? [07:06] ! [07:06] boolcrap: stop. [07:06] gnea: you got the link for the ubuntu 10.10 desktop installation guide, im willing to rtfm [07:06] boolcrap: I'm not asking for what's in that folder, I want to know the output of that command, that's it. [07:07] drwxrwsrwt 2 root root 4096 date 1:51 /tmp/.X11-unix [07:07] minixking: I would recommend 10.04, not 10.10 for your first install [07:07] boolcrap: thank you. [07:07] boolcrap: what tells you that /tmp/.X11_unix is the problem? [07:08] when i startx [07:08] why do you startx? [07:08] gnea: its not my first *nix install, but if i cannot even get the install to work, i cannot tinker so i cannot fix my errors on my own lol, an install guide for the desktop version would help [07:08] im trying to get into my desktop [07:08] boolcrap: why don't you login via the gui? [07:08] i thought thats how u got into it from the shell ;/ [07:08] it wont let me [07:08] well, that's one way [07:08] goes straight for tty1 login [07:08] why not? [07:08] I see. [07:09] boolcrap: did you install ubuntu or kubuntu? [07:09] ubuntu [07:09] but [07:09] boolcrap: what version? [07:09] i also tried to install kubuntu [07:09] sec [07:09] gnea: ubuntu will install on an existing winblows partition wont it? [07:09] poor guy, doesnt anyone else in here offer help lol [07:09] crap i dont remember ;/ #70-Ubuntu [07:10] so: 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) [07:10] 10.4 [07:10] i think [07:10] minixking: if you use wubi, it will create a virtual filesystem in windows and then install to that file [07:10] boolcrap: lsb_release -r [07:10] 9.10 [07:10] aah [07:11] boolcrap: did you try to install kubuntu after ubuntu was installed? [07:11] what can list all devices like sda cdrom ide etcetc? [07:11] sorry i only tried to install kubuntu-desktop [07:11] not kubuntu os [07:11] chovynz: you mean devices that are mounted? [07:11] i was using VMWARE [07:11] and i had to reboot [07:11] when i came back, i couldnt get into my desktop [07:11] boolcrap: vmware installed in ubuntu? [07:11] yeah [07:11] gnea not mounted but all possible ones. I have to find out where my ubuntu has put the cdrom/dvd drive [07:12] Gnea: so that i can mount it [07:12] okay, so you you use ubuntu as your host os, then tried to install kubuntu to vmware, right? [07:12] no i installed windows [07:12] everything was running fine [07:12] chovynz: well it should already have something defined for it in /etc/fstab [07:12] sorry i used apt-get install kubuntu-desktop [07:12] to try and get a desktop back [07:12] gnea: ok that is what i am trying to do, and wubi will not complete install it stops at that error, i am not changing any default settings other than the pw under the user account in the wubi setup window, i click next it starts the dl of the ubuntu10.10-i386.iso.torrent and gets almost done and quits [07:12] boolcrap: now I'm confused. [07:12] :(~ [07:13] that what iw as doing when i had to reboot [07:13] i had VMWARe open with windows XP on it [07:13] minixking: do you have enough drive space? which version of windows? [07:13] on ubuntu 9.10 [07:13] then i rebooted [07:13] now i cant get into desktop [07:13] boolcrap: slow down please.... I know this is very frustrating, but we need to take things in stride, one thing at a time and not get too ahead, okay? [07:14] ok [07:14] one thing at a time [07:14] good :) [07:14] boolcrap: so, your host os is just ubuntu 9.10, correct? [07:14] correct [07:14] boolcrap: and you installed windows xp in vmware, correct? or vista/7? [07:14] gnea: plenty of drive space well over a tb left and windowsXP home+sp3 [07:14] xp [07:15] xp - good choice [07:15] xp for life. [07:15] same :) [07:15] okay, so this kubuntu, you installed that in vmware too? [07:15] no sorry, no kubuntu on vmare [07:15] okay. [07:15] i did "apt-get install kubuntu-dekstop" [07:16] aaaah [07:16] to try and get a desktop back [07:16] so: 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) [07:16] alpha_centauri: you should ask that in ##linux [07:17] from gnome how do u run a program as root ? [07:17] minixking: wubi should have the option to use a .iso already downloaded [07:17] VectorX: sudo name_of_program [07:17] Gnea from gnome, not the cli [07:17] VectorX: super-r [07:18] VectorX: should bring up the run command dialog [07:18] gnea: im seeing that, rtfm lol [07:18] boolcrap: did the command complete successfully? [07:18] havent found the syntax yet just seen that is an option [07:19] yes [07:19] it did [07:19] hai every one i used pitivi video editor for joining of some video files of mine..but after completion of my work the joined video is saved in the format some what called .xptv due to that it is not opening in movie Player..how to convert it to play [07:19] minixking: when you run wubi.exe, make sure you look at the whole thing and look at each option before checking 'next' [07:19] then it started up [07:19] and it had the kubuntu desktop loading image, then it just went to tty1 shell [07:19] then i died a little more inside. [07:19] should I use ssh or ebox? what's the difference? [07:19] looser: better to ask in #pitivi [07:20] looser: i think it should have some kind of export option [07:20] gnea: i think it might be a command line syntax no? [07:20] boolcrap: okay, were you able to get back to tty7 or tty8? [07:20] no [07:20] just up to 6 [07:21] alpha_centauri, no there is no such option [07:21] boolcrap: update from 9.04 to 9.10 is supported but says nothing about going from 10.04 to 10.10?????

[09:43] i have installed ubuntu 10. in my system ,its showing that window manager is not loading properly . please help me [09:43] sdrs, as SwedeMike said, install nano then [09:43] Hello I need some help [09:43] bhavesh: especially since 1) people use different GUIs (I'm using KDE. You're probably not.) 2) different versions of Ubuntu put things in different places [09:43] sacarlson: any idea? [09:44] snimavat: I looked closer at my installed custom and it's /usr/local/* that they end up, it's the normal default that's setup in the compile configs i guess [09:44] !helpme | jake__ [09:44] jake__: Avoid following your questions with a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !attitude [09:44] ok.... [09:44] now it says sudo command not found [09:44] jake__: actually, that should have alluded to "just ask your question" [09:44] sdrs, then you are probably not on ubuntu [09:44] but how do i get packages installed in a directory i want weather it is /user/local or any other? [09:44] sacarlson: [09:44] i would like to find out the version of it please [09:44] I can't seem to find a dvd player to play my dvds [09:45] how do i do that, sorry to bother you's so much [09:45] jake__, vlc? [09:45] sacarlson: did u read my thread? [09:45] sdrs: can you pastebin the output of this command: lsb_release -a [09:45] jake_ download VLC media player from ubuntu software centre [09:45] snimavat: yes I read your thread [09:45] jake__: vlc should do it [09:45] -bash: lsb_release: command not found [09:45] HOW LONG DOES THIS LAST [09:45] !caps | AndroidGoat [09:45] AndroidGoat: PLEASE DON'T SHOUT! We can read lowercase too. [09:45] in Ubuntu my cd drive doesn't read cds. what to do [09:46] Ok thanks [09:46] hi [09:46] i have a problem pl help me [09:46] Guys. How come I can't get expanded downloads list in windows? [09:46] couldnt launch windows in ubuntu [09:46] snimavat: I assume your custom is compiled source from outside ubuntu, each source is a bit different to configure but they seem to be common for the most part. but to be sure you should look at the configs of that source [09:46] my dell studio is loaded with ubuntu 10.10 [09:46] its not source [09:47] its .deb files [09:47] i m not able to get sound in the speakers [09:47] jake__: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats <- Might be helpful to you. [09:47] i tired installing sound drives going to system ,administration [09:47] etc [09:47] hai [09:47] it did not help [09:47] snimavat: oh ok, so you want to keep the cd install in one set and any upgrades in another? [09:48] hello [09:48] HoW LOnG dOeS tHiS lAsT [09:48] hi, i have a problem with vlc... the video isn't playing fluently... can anybody help me plz? [09:48] Mandrake Linux release 9.2 (FiveStar) for i586 [09:48] I want to keep softwares i download in other locations [09:48] greenbit, cpu usage? [09:48] should i have to reinstall ubuntu again or it can be fixed pl help me [09:48] greenIT, it should be a video problem. Well from where did u download VLC? [09:48] kk9822, are the speakers broken? [09:48] like pidgin, media players and other softwares [09:48] it can be anything [09:48] meaning [09:49] hey [09:49] it works fine with windows [09:49] sacarlson [09:49] bhavesh, i have downloaded vlc from the ubuntu ppa [09:49] i want programs for networking [09:49] AndroidGoat: do you have an ubuntu-related question? [09:49] Ok VlC didn't work its not letting me play the dvd [09:49] snimavat: well I guess the easy way is to install from cd and move everything to a new dir so when you add new stuff it will acumulate in the original location [09:49] snimavat, not sure, but the way its handled in ubuntu, thats probably not possible, at least no easy way [09:49] jake__: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/PlayingDVDs [09:49] kk9822, oh so you have a dualboot? [09:49] greenIT, ok if the video is fine try to reinstall it.. ubuntu software centre [09:49] yes [09:49] when i tried to emulate an arm machine(by giving a am cross compiled image) in ubuntu 9.10 QEMU ,am getting this error..please help me..ths is urgent... [09:49] qemu-system-arm: command not found [09:49] kk9822, try to use this > https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems [09:49] is there a way to preload the video before it plays? [09:50] brontoeee: would dpkg --instdir would help ? [09:50] kk9822, cause you said your Dell came loaded with Ubuntu [09:50] greenIT, cpu usage is? [09:50] no i loaded [09:50] jake__: VLC will play DVDs, but your issue is likely that you don't have the libdvdcss2 package installed. That package is required in order to play commercial DVDs on Linux. [09:50] Gnea I did and I asked it more than 3 times [09:51] brontoeee, cpu usage is 50% and 46% [09:51] Ok [09:51] AndroidGoat: didn't see it, any other question since then is irrelevent. [09:51] Hey guys where can I get lreadline. Im trying to install scanmem [09:51] greenIT, how about playing with mplayer? [09:51] kk9822, what program are you using that doesn't have sound? [09:51] aaron11: you mean libreadline? [09:51] brontoeee, i will try, w8 a bit plz.... [09:52] Gnea, yeh libreadline-dev [09:52] the startup of ubuntu [09:52] I asked how long does running dpkg in recovery mode usually take. [09:52] snimavat: 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 work [09:52] aaron11: just install it [09:52] next is youtube [09:52] AndroidGoat: until it's done. [09:52] and dvd movie player [09:52] I'm in a text based log in for Ubuntu now. How do I get to graphically?? Anybody? [09:52] sacarlson: dpkg have an option --instdir to specify the install directory, but i am not sure if it would work [09:52] what is a text based log? [09:53] infact it mostly doesnt work [09:53] film [09:53] AndroidGoat, startx [09:53] does that mean, you guyz keep installing every thing in / [09:53] snimavat: but I guess there are also the libs and database and etc configs, I guess it's much more involved than I realize [09:53] Login * gnea [09:53] Gnea: AndroidGoat is logged in on a tty rather than in X. [09:53] every software weather it is from ubuntu or not, u install it in / [09:53] kk9822, have you tried this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting ? [09:53] TSK: oh, he said log, not login. [09:53] snimavat: cool I didn't know that [09:53] sacarlson: ? [09:54] sacarlson, + user defined settings that go into /home/user, ect ... [09:54] Gnea: Aye. I'ma mindreader. ;) [09:54] How do I get to x [09:54] Oh great ok now my terminal isn't working correctly [09:54] brontoeee, same problem... probably it is cause i watch it through hdmi, but is there a possibility to preload at least a part of the video in vlc or mplayer? [09:54] AndroidGoat: it's ubuntu, X should already be running. [09:54] no i will [09:54] thanks [09:54] Its text tho. Danforth. I only needed 1 thing... [09:55] 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] AndroidGoat, try strg-alt-Fx with x from 4 to 8 ... otherwise enter "startx" [09:55] greenIT, they both have some sort of prebufering, if that is your question? you can specify buffer in mplayer command line, but it wont help [09:55] AndroidGoat: then you need to learn how to communicate properly instead of assuming that anyone knows what you're talking about. [09:55] Can't connection to x server. Well isn't that unfortunate [09:55] AndroidGoat: stop now [09:55] AndroidGoat: explain your problem clearly [09:55] hi everbody [09:55] AndroidGoat: are you running ubuntu desktop ? [09:55] (as in the desktop install) [09:56] brontoeee, probably it would, because i play the video from a hd, which isn't the fastest^^ [09:56] greenIT, so there are certain videos you have that play smoothly? === StarSky is now known as Lucase [09:57] yeah, but they are all less than 1080p, the ones with fullhd are all jiggling [09:58] erm... does anyone know framebuffer? [09:58] can anybody troubleshoot my problem. i am unable to run my window 2003 instance in UEC 10.10. it is showing pending state then terminating. [09:58] Why does scanmem return with 0 matches when i search [09:58] manas: UEC ? [09:59] sers [09:59] Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud [09:59] Okay. But beware I am typing this from an android device. Okay well I turned off Ubuntu hard during an upgrade since I was goin to install wubi with a much larger amount of space. But when I got to the windows side whenever I tried to get to the advanced download list it redirected me to something else. I tried to get back Ito Ubuntu by got stuck at the boot splash. Then I ran dpkg in recovery mode then reboot. Now I'm in a tx [09:59] manas: ahh, ok what platform are you running it on ? [09:59] when i tried to emulate an arm machine(by giving a am cross compiled image) in ubuntu 9.10 QEMU ,am getting this error..please help me..ths is urgent... [09:59] qemu-system-arm: command not found [10:00] Ok thank you so much! Um is there any other ways i can get ubuntu on a netbook that doesn't have internet right now and doesn't have a disk frive? [10:00] drive* [10:00] AndroidGoat: it sounds a mess, I would re-install, as quitting mid upgrade will break it === fx is now known as Guest8543 [10:00] kanupatar: install that package [10:00] intel x86 [10:00] manas: ok, what's the error ? [10:01] anylink? [10:01] I want to reinstall with wubi 10.10 but I can't get the stand alone without it redirecting me [10:01] in the nc the instance kernel size is showing empty [10:01] Maybe if someone sends me the links to the advanced download page it would work. [10:02] AndroidGoat: where is it redirecting you ? [10:03] Ikonia hold on I will switch to an irc not on my phone [10:03] manas: that's odd, I've never seen that [10:03] AndroidGoat: by 'advanced download' do you mean the page where you can select different iso files? [10:03] Is there any way to get the ubuntu 10.10 on a netbook that doesn't have a disc drive or right at this moment no internet as well? [10:03] snimavat: maybe the dpkg --root=dir option? [10:04] May be, not sure [10:04] how about --instdir ? [10:04] Gnea I think so its a page that has a whole list of downloads its like black and white from my recollection. Hold on [10:05] okay i am android goat [10:05] can you tell me what i do next [10:05] hi guys! can anybody recommend me a decent soulseek client for ubuntu, pls? [10:05] AndroidGoat: sure thing [10:05] manas: how many machines is your cloud spread over [10:05] hello, if i start 2 processes by using the & keyword: "gedit & vlc"; if i call "killall vlc" they both die. how do i stop that from happening? [10:06] gnea http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download [10:06] anyone here who might be able to answer my cryptsetup and cryptdisks related question? [10:06] Cornelius: don't use & [10:06] "enhanced download page" gnea [10:06] #quakenet [10:06] ikona i need the programs to run at startup. im adding them to rc.local and i have to use & for that [10:06] Cornelius: no you don't [10:06] it is in test purpose . so we have 3 machines including clc. [10:07] so i can remove the &'s? and itll boot them all ok? [10:07] manas: ok, so you do have a distributed node set [10:07] yes [10:07] snimavat: 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 that [10:07] Cornelius: no, you put graphical apps in your session startup not rc.local [10:07] FloatingGoat: yup, that's the one [10:07] qemu-system-arm: command not found [10:07] manas: your setup is sane, I don't know why the kernel whould show as 0 [10:08] kanupatar: yes, install it [10:08] gnea can you send the URL to that page in this chat? maybe if i go directly to the URL i wont get redirected [10:08] FloatingGoat: where are you getting redirected to [10:08] how to install that? [10:08] kanupatar: open the package manager, search for qemu and look for it [10:08] ok ok [10:08] ikonia: I get redirected to this page http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download [10:08] some driver comes in RPM (only RPM) and is meant to install on openSUSE. How can attempt to get it working in Ubuntu? [10:08] ikonia its for a server, i have x11 running on it for testing only. [10:08] gusg: don't [10:08] Cornelius: so ? that doesn't change what I said [10:09] gusg cou can use the alien application to change the .rpms to .debs [10:09] FloatingGoat: what's wrong witht hat URL [10:09] remoteCTRL2: but he should not use it [10:09] ^ [10:09] ikonia im not familiar with "session startup", where can i find more info on it [10:09] is it error between walrus and NC [10:09] ikonia: if you'd elaborate, it would be helpful [10:09] FloatingGoat: click the options you want on that page and click download [10:09] That is not the page im looking for ikonia I got a different page in firefox on ubuntu [10:10] FloatingGoat: http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/ubuntu-releases/ [10:10] gusg: you should not try to use software compiled for other distros on your ubuntu machine [10:10] ikonia: well.. sometimes youre fine with it, sometimes youre doomed, one should mention that, guess youre right there *g* [10:10] gnea dude you are awesome [10:10] !ipod [10:10] For information on how to sync and add tracks to your iPod, see the guide at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IPodHowto - For the iPhone and the iPod Touch, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone - See !RockBox for information on liberating your iPod [10:10] FloatingGoat: it won't redirect, and it's a 4gbps link [10:10] gusg: setup for differnt kernel and others, even if it did work could cause problems [10:10] how do i verify that my hw (mb & drive) supports NCQ & Trim? (and check if they are enabled?) [10:10] agruman: read the manuals [10:10] FloatingGoat: cheers [10:10] agruman: contact the vendors [10:10] gusg do that as a last ressort... [10:11] gusg: or don't do it at all [10:11] they're closed source drivers. I don't know how else to do it [10:11] gusg: what are they for ? [10:11] ikonia: NI DAQ (Data acquisition) board [10:12] gusg: I'd contact the makers and ask them to make it available in a binary format or in a dpkg format [10:12] thanks again it's working! i didnt know there was a stand alone wubi 10.10! thanks for the help [10:12] ikonia, 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 something [10:12] FloatingGoat: no problem, good luck [10:12] agruman: that's not what you asked, you asked to see if it supports it, not if it's enabled, ask a question clearly [10:12] ikonia, 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 option [10:13] Okay. 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 manager [10:13] FIRST, 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] agruman: 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] is it problem between walrus and NC [10:13] Hi all [10:13] ikonia, well i asked both actually, but ok, il rephrase, how do i check if NCQ and TRIM are enabled? [10:13] can someone tell ... does UBUNTU have a FIREWALL ?????? [10:13] Cornelius: 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 fine [10:13] altin: Yes [10:14] agruman: for ncq you normally need a tool from the disk vendor [10:14] TSK, I cant find it :S [10:14] agruman: NCQ - from the libata faq --> http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=144858 [10:14] its not even in System > Administration :/ ??? TSK [10:14] agruman: you may be able to see it in hdparm [10:14] ikonia, gedit was an example. i actually need it for a few peices of software [10:14] altin: 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] *custom peices of software [10:15] If NCQ is enabled for your drive, it will be printed in dmesg after the lba48 flag, such as: [10:15] Cornelius: ok, ANY X11 software will only run after someone logs in, so the point is still valid [10:15] ikonia: how to troubleshoot it [10:15] ata1: dev 0 ATA, max UDMA/133, 488281250 sectors lba48 ncq [10:15] Dr_Willis, thanks alot, very helpful! :) [10:15] Dr_Willis: are you sure that shows if it is enabled, I thought that was just showing it was capable === Silanus is now known as silanus_ [10:15] ikonia: no idea. last i looked into ncq - it basically was a 'big deal' about Nothing... [10:15] altin: 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] altin: do you mean from default? there are programs to setup firewalls like firestarter [10:16] ikonia, both (0/32) disabled, (31/32) enabled [10:16] the NCQ posts i am finding are also rather old. 2yrs old in some cases. [10:16] !ufw | altin [10:16] altin: 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] Hi, would it make sense to have a second HDD formatted with btrfs and use it for nfs storage and backups? My / and /home are ext4 === silanus_ is now known as Silanus [10:16] LoneShadow: not really no, not in my opijion [10:16] TSK, ok the reason is that I have some open ports that I found with nmap but even ufw doesnt close them ikonia [10:16] ikonia, thanks for the hint of hdparm, will read up on that [10:17] altin: it will if you configure it to [10:17] https://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Libata_FAQ#Enabling.2C_disabling_and_checking_NCQ [10:17] Enabling NCQ, if supported, is the same: [10:17] I used sudo ufw deny (port) [10:17] $ echo 31 > /sys/block/sdX/device/queue_depth [10:17] ikonia, I used sudo ufw deny (port) ? [10:17] ikonia: 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] altin: so ? [10:17] altin: You may want to try scanning using "Shields Up" at http://www.grc.com/ before you start messing too much with the firewall locally. [10:18] Linux 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) like [10:18] when I scan with nmap it shows that its open again :/ ikonia [10:18] LoneShadow: 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, ntfs [10:18] altin: what nmap command are you using ? [10:18] Scanning 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. [10:19] ikonia, any problems with ntfs and ubuntu this days? (not for linux backups, just for files) [10:19] does anyone know of a version of the game collapse for ubuntu - it would seem that it must exist but I can't find it [10:19] altin: in most cases I just close the application that I don't want to listen, sudo netstat -pant to isolate the application to the port [10:19] * jmad980 still doesn't trust linux + ntfs [10:19] tho it is functional @ brontoeee [10:19] ikonia, 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] brontoeee: I wouldn't do it [10:20] I also used Zenmap [10:20] Cornelius: teamspeak server has a GUI for X? or is it an actual 'service' ? [10:20] Cornelius: they are not X11 apps [10:20] I'm using NTFS on my 2TB external USB drive for over a year now without issue (using NTFS3G). [10:20] anyway how can I close the ports ? [10:20] Cornelius: the examples you gave are X11 apps, those are not [10:20] ikonia: Why NTFS for windows, I could export the ext4 partition using samba right? === Silanus is now known as silanus [10:21] ikonia, 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] LoneShadow: 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 network [10:21] altin: close or killall the application? [10:21] samba shouldent care what FS its 'shareing' but shareing NTFS can be a bit tricky at times. [10:21] ikonia, 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] Cornelius: you don't use & as I told you [10:21] brontoeee: id use ntfs then. [10:21] Dr_Willis, right [10:21] brontoeee: I'd use two partitions with native file systems for each OS [10:21] ikonia: Sorry, missed that part, only my laptops are running Windows. I guess I will format this as ext4 on the linux server :) [10:21] LoneShadow: that makes sense [10:22] ikonia, yes thanks you've said that already. It still doesnt point me in the right direction [10:22] was 8.10 a bad version of ubuntu? [10:22] FloatingGoat: no, why? [10:22] !8.10 [10:22] Ubuntu 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] Cornelius: it doesn't as the & problem was for X11 apps, if you're not running X11 apps, you can just put them in rc.local [10:23] ok, now i understand. thanks ikonia [10:23] SwedeMike: it was my favorite [10:23] another q, regarding wd usb stuff, is it possible to get rid of wd smardware with ubuntu box? [10:23] brontoeee: when you format it, it will go [10:24] ikonia, nope, survives every type of destruction i tryed [10:24] brontoeee: I removed that partition from my drive entirely after I copied it to a CD. [10:24] brontoeee: delete the partition and re-create [10:24] TSK, how? [10:25] ikonia, thats what i did [10:25] brontoeee: I doubt it [10:25] brontoeee: 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] brontoeee: the software is held on the partition, if you remove it, it will be gone [10:26] The 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] i used gparted to do that and osx tools do try the same, still it persist somehow... [10:26] well, offtopic, doesnt matter really, just an annoyance [10:27] I wonder if one could take a ubuntu iso and make a similer 'rescue' partition... [10:27] Dr_Willis: Hmmm... That's actually a really EXCELLENT idea... I might have to give that a try... [10:28] Dr_Willis, i'd say this is wd hardware specific, hd drive bios specific even [10:28] ikonia: 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] i mean the non-destructible partition [10:29] i can set up GRUB2 to boot ISO files.. but thats not quite the same. :) [10:30] <%[Goku]Harima> [version HD] - [GCP] Major - 147 HD [1A1CE137].mp4 - /MSG [Goku]Harima XDCC SEND 149 [10:30] Dr_Willis: I tried to get grub2 to boot an iso and failed, did you ever get that to work?

[10:32] sacarlson: check http://delicious.com/dr_willis under my grub/grub2 tags. [10:32] Dr_Willis: cool I"ll take a look, thanks [10:33] sacarlson: once you get one going.. i made a 8gb flash drive tha tcould boot like 8 differnt iso's [10:34] sacarlson: 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] Does ubuntu have nvidia non-free package ,is it's nvidia-current?it's not the lastest [10:34] ayaka: ubuntu is often 'not the latest' in most everything. Its usiong a 6 mo release cycle.

[10:35] brontoeee: On the Smartware partition itself is a tool called "Virtual CD Manager.exe". [10:35] ayaka: so if nvidia came out with new drivers in the last 6 mo. they are most likely not in the repos.

[11:12] hello world! [11:12] hi. What are people's opinions of UNITY on ubuntu [11:12] n00p3: i dont use raids at all. so really no idea. You may need to set up /boot/ and grub on a non raid partition. [11:12] thats what i hate on open source, they change things without backward compatibility [11:12] hey does anyone know what keeps closing my fullscreen mode in firefox flash player (when i watch smth at example .. youtube)? it keeps switching to window mode after dam like 10-30 secs after i set fullscreen... i cant live with it what to do? [11:13] yea.. closed source.. NEVER does that alteregoa ..... [11:13] Dr_Willis, what is the mo,I see nvidia-current in 180,but now is 258 [11:13] abcd99: used to be just clicking outside the fullscreen window would unfullscreen it. so anything geting the focus from the player would unfullscreen it. [11:14] I am trying to sort syslog by date: "Aug 09 11:00:06.138 security". Any help with sort command? [11:14] ayaka: What? [11:14] sort -k 1.1,3M -k 2.1,2n -k 3.1,2n -t: -k 1.1,2n -k 1.4,5n -k 1.7,8n . no go. any ideas how to do that? === webpigeon is now known as Guest45671 [11:15] Dr_Willis: ok, i try it .. thx [11:15] Dr_Willis: is there any way to make that option off? i mean how to get rid of it... i dont know what is getting focus from flash player... [11:15] Dr_Willis, the non-free drivers version number [11:15] abcd99: no idea. I tend to watch in a little window at the top of the screen always 'on top' [11:15] abcd99: i was thinking that was 'fixed' in some new flash versions. but never tried it. [11:16] I'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 widescreen [11:16] Err.. using Xinerama - both are not running a seperate X server.. unless you got some fancy tricjks going on. :) [11:16] Dr_Willis:im using adobe's 64bit square preview ver. so maybe its because of it... dam [11:17] I 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] oh sorry, seprate X screen [11:17] Dr_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 again [11:18] sacarlson: 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. [11:19] This 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 him [11:19] Dr_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 distro [11:19] Rowen: its basically a flash issue from adobe... [11:19] Ah [11:19] sacarlson: ive done a dozen disrtos.. each with differnt options. === Otacon22_ is now known as Otacon22 [11:23] Alright, thanks Dr_Willis I told my friend about it, he doesn't fully understand but thank you anyways. [11:23] Rowen, 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] Dr_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] Dr_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] Rowen: 'its adobes fault' :) [11:23] edwardteach, I jsut use AdBlock plus for those adds :P [11:23] Wubi installer; Sacarlson [11:23] hehe [11:23] Lucase: I don't have windows [11:24] I'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 anymore [11:24] Rowen, its called flashvideoreplacer [11:24] Lucase: I have an old version of ubuntu and wanted to install another version on another partition [11:24] sacarlson: 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] is 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] sacarlson: or simile thing with a flash, or a 2nd hard drive. === owner is now known as sinzuelos [11:25] Dr_Willis: like I said the iso live boot is booting fine, but the next problem is to do the install from this boot [11:25] Thomc, yes why not ? [11:25] sacarlson: you install to a differnt drive, or alrleady partitioned location. You dont resize where they are at during the install. [11:26] Lucase, i just wondered if them being connected differently made a difference. guess not. [11:26] edwardteach, whould it let it display dualmonitors properly in full screen [11:26] thomc, it wont affect anything :) [11:26] Dr_Willis: ya that might work, maybe if the partitions are already there, I'll try it [11:26] Lucase, great. is nfs the recommended way of sharing files between linux machines? [11:27] Rowen, i dont know but it maybe worth a shot! [11:27] is there any shortcut to toggle the menubar of any app.... particularly firefox [11:27] sacarlson: the trick is you CANT resize the partition you booted from - during the isntaller.. [11:27] thomc, the recomended way to share files will be on the Program list in ubuntu software packages [11:27] thomc: Of course NFS is not recommended way for connecting 2 machines [11:28] sacarlson: 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] Ok, 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] Dr_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 solved [11:28] besogon, ok. is there a recommended way? i'm new to this. [11:28] Dr_Willis: Not true, as long as you use the toram option :) [11:28] Hmm. I use NFS to share stuff btween 2 machines all the time.. what else is it supposed to be used for. :) [11:28] thomc: you can use Samba or ssh [11:29] its all in the details of what you are doing i guess. [11:29] besogon, ok thanks [11:29] sacarlson: 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. [11:30] Dr_Willis: NFS is not convenient way I suppose even thou it is the fastest one [11:30] sacarlson: watch out for swap partitions also. the live cd's often see/use them automatically [11:30] Jordan_U: no this system has 512meg, but I'll keep that in mind [11:30] besogon: depends on what your convience is.. :) [11:30] ive had less hassles setting up NFS in the past then fighting samba in a mixed network. :) [11:31] Dr_Willis: For me it's using Nautilus and Win clients if possible [11:31] is there a way to see all packages installed by a specific user? [11:31] sacarlson: 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] hello 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 windows [11:31] how do i proceed ? [11:32] raviepic3: What version of Ubuntu are you using? [11:32] 9.04 [11:32] Raviepic3, do you have windows on the first os ? [11:32] anig [11:32] Jordan_U, ^ [11:32] hi [11:32] what r u doing [11:32] Lucase, on the first os ! ? how do i see that ? [11:33] raviepic3, I mean , do you use windows [11:33] ........... [11:33] Lucase, i already a working copy of windows and ubuntu on same machine, windows got corrupted so reinstalled, and now this proble, [11:33] Lucase, yes i use windows [11:34] raviepic3: 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] raviepic3, yes try to get the new ubuntu version on your cd, or just go with Wubi [11:34] Hello! Please i need help with my new external monitor: I have connected it through my Linux Mint 9 but it is displaying everything with this kind of "wavy" improper output. I tried it on the same laptop but different OS, it is working perfectly, any suggestions please? I tried AandR but not much i can do there. Please any help is highly appreciated. [11:35] Tornado-Mint: mint has its own support channels. [11:35] !mint [11:35] Linux Mint is not a supported derivative of Ubuntu, please seek support in #linuxmint-help on irc.spotchat.org [11:35] Jordan_U, you mean i shoul dhave setup (hd0) instead of setup (hd0,6) ? [11:35] sounds like your refresh rate is wrong. [11:36] raviepic3: Yes. [11:36] raviepic3: hd0 = the mbr of the hd. hd0,6 = mbr (of the partition) [11:36] ok will try and return back here thank you [11:40] Awesome, I found a flash plugin that fixed my issue. [11:41] I uninstalled the Adobe plugin and installed Gnash SWF Viewer [11:41] im suprise gnash works at all. :) [11:42] Bit of lag when first loading the YT page but then it runs fine [11:42] You do realize that Youtube can use html5 for video playback for most videos and not need Flash at all? [11:42] at least with the right browser. :) Chrome/chromium [11:42] http://youtube.com/html5 [11:43] meh [11:43] IT's not my system :) [11:43] my friends [11:43] so? [11:43] what ever works, he's ok with [11:43] except gnash may not work at some OTHER flash sites.. [11:43] using html5 video means less load and a more stable system [11:43] hi, do someone knows a way to get a list of installed packages sorted chronologically? thanks [11:44] sharkk: not sure there is a way to do that. [11:44] Not sure why you whould do that. [11:44] sharkk: 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] just toknow which pkgs i installed yesterday, because i forgot... [11:45] sharkk: what tool did you isntall them with? [11:45] there is no log of apt-get activity? [11:45] some may keep logs. [11:45] sharkk, ubuintu software center has a history thingy check it out [11:45] kpackage [11:45] lapion, 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 come === oCean_ is now known as oCean [11:46] sharkk: there is also the /var/log/apt/history.log logfile you can check [11:46] Also, Dr_Willis: My friend is used to Firefox, I don't think he will use Chrome... [11:46] his loss. [11:47] lapion, 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] I use both. :) often at the same time. [11:47] ok, i solve it: cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep 'install ' thanks to you anyway [11:48] Bleh, I'm just not in the mood... I've been working on this beast for 3 days now... [11:48] Hi, I need to disable ohci_hcd driver from loading onto "0000:00:04.0" device, can someone tell me how to disable this during bootup? [11:49] because a ton of issues because of dual monitors came at once and had to reinstall 3 seprate times for 3 seprate issues [11:49] so it was easier to jsut reinstall than fix because there was nothing installed [11:49] rarely had any issues with Twinview on my 2 monitor setup. [11:49] it pays to learn how to fix things. :) [11:50] Well twinview didn't work how we wanted it, when a program went fullscreen it took both monitors [11:51] Rowen, how did you fix it ? [11:51] rowen are you using compiz ? [11:51] I uninstalled the Adobe plugin and installed Gnash SWF Viewer [11:51] Rowen: you dident have twinview setup then,. You were using Xinerama [11:51] and no [11:52] boot system -> install nvidia drivers -> reboot -> run nvidia config app. -> enable twinview NOT xinerama -> restart X server.. should work/fullscreen to each monitor seperately [11:52] ifyou just use 'apply' and DONT resart the X server after enabling twinview - You can have issues. [11:53] how do i 'rename using perlexpr' for files, file01 file03 file05 to file01 file02 file03 [11:54] Dr_Willis, can you use twin view just as well as xinerama ? [11:54] edwardteach: twinview Superceded xinerama. you dont use both. :) [11:54] twinviwew = Xinerama+extrastuff [11:54] ati has a similer thing I recall. [11:55] time for some f00d >:) Brb [11:56] Dr_Willis, is there a way to jsut restart xserver with out loging in and out? or no?

[12:02] magellan, Firefox has a Sync add-on that syncs bookmarks acorss multpial machines [12:03] magellan, Guest68964 yes, i guess two different logins would do, so basically make a user for your old bookmarks and your new ones and sync plugin should get you started === Guest68964 is now known as Rowen === Rowen is now known as Rowen_Stipe [12:06] Hello! how do i add KDE desktop in ubuntu? [12:06] DhaniJeremy: install the kubuntu-desktop pacakge [12:07] Guest68964, thanks- by the way i want to accomplish somewhat like this i have my firefox old bookmark and again i create a new firefox bookmark backup again. so it is two deffirent files backup which i want to merge..is firefox sync extension you mention will do the tricks [12:07] Dr_Willis: there are so many packages, do i need to install all of them? [12:07] kkk [12:07] Well Dr_Willis, I chould have left my set up alone and have the same results as the twin view [12:08] Rowen_Stipe: im not sure whatyour whole problem was.. but proberly could [12:08] hey [12:08] i got dual boot with windows and i was wondering if it's possible to make "restart into windows" command ? [12:09] Meh, it's working now... my friend like it. and I get to slap him in about 30 minutes if he doesn't wake up [12:09] sandking: its possible. but may take some work. [12:09] GRUB should let you choose your OS when dual booting [12:09] grub has options to 'set the default' via command line, so you could some how use that featurem, then reboot.. and it would go to the default. [12:10] but then it would stay at windows as the default untill you set it differntly [12:10] it also has a saved-default option where it rembers the last os you selected. and that is the new defauilt [12:11] Maybe have a script that runs on login and checks what the default is, and if it's not ubuntu it sets it to ubuntu [12:11] yep. thats always possible. [12:12] too complicated :/ [12:12] such is life. === CripperZ-v6 is now known as CripperZ- [12:12] nihao [12:12] i of course have menu to choose at boot but i thought that maybe i can boot directly [12:12] I have just installed edubuntu 64bit on a machine but it does not seem to be connecting to tthe network /internet [12:12] k, thx anyway [12:14] ....

[12:19] wmorri: I tried that, didn't help, probably because ohci_hcd is not a module, its kernel built in [12:20] This is little OT, but... Does anybody have download link (working) for cdproboot-0.2.iso ?? [12:20] LoneShadow: there might be some kenel boot options to disable it. [12:20] I am tring to see if there is something similar to nousb grub option [12:20] MangledBody: check torrent sites perhaps. [12:20] may i ask command how to mount with users permission not root a ext4 partition [12:20] i mean manually not in fstab [12:20] Dr_Willis: Yes, but not finding it yet, know any global list of kernel options webpage? [12:20] Dr_Willis: No... Pirate bay has no clue about it and the others too... [12:20] magellan: you dont just 'override' a linux flesystems permissions with mount options.

[12:23] hi I cant install : linux-backports-modules-alsa-2.6.35-24-generic-pae om maverick 64bit it was working fine on 34bit but at the moment no sound who can help ?

For instance, `man pipe' gives me the bash command, so I have to guess which number is the C function. [13:27] zatan: you should try installing with the complete packagename.

[13:35] zatan: 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] magellan, there are no permissions possible on non-linux file system i think [13:36] Hey, all, I'm having trouble installing Ubuntu 10.10 x64.

[13:36] mprince, 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] oCean, okay so now where I can look what causing this problem ? [13:36] can anybody know how to troubleshoot [13:37] magellan: they can be changed by the user / group that has ownership of the files and by root [13:37] zatan: 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 minutes [13:37] manas: yes, it's possible for anyone to learn how to do it [13:38] oCean, suprise!

[13:39] zatan: cool, enjoy [13:40] mprince, what do you mean paste bin [13:40] aaaasd [13:40] magellan, 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. [13:41] magellan: it appears luckybackup is not preserving the permissions when it copies all your data to the ntfs share [13:41] !it > Bubbubuntu [13:41] Bubbubuntu, please see my private message [13:42] brontoeee: correct. tar can pack unix metadata [13:42] doc [13:43] W:Failed to fetch http://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org/dists//main/source/Sources.gz 404 Not Found [IP: 80] [13:43] , E:Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

[14:02] from ubuntu.com [14:02] or ubuntu.hu [14:02] Jackneill: to make a livecd or liveusb you need the .iso file [14:02] i forget sorry [14:02] Craig: uname -m [14:02] greetings [14:02] hm [14:02] ok [14:03] Jackneill, you has to be an iso... iso simply mean an image of that disc [14:03] sw0rdf1sh: x86_64 meaning x64? - i know mine is x64, just a friend didnt know what his was, he also outputs x86_64 [14:04] ok [14:04] and im on laptop [14:04] ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386 is good for an laptop?

I found it here actually "/home/lenin/.cache/chromium/Default/Cache" Thanks for the reply though :) [14:04] Craig`: that's correct - an x86 version wouldn't include the "x64" part [14:04] LDC: good [14:05] Trying to install 10.10 x64 on a new laptop... [14:05] Jackneill, how new is the laptop, and are you going to install 11.04 when it comes out? === pupuser242de2 is now known as iflema [14:06] yeats: he's installed x64 on what he thinks to be an x32 laptop, is this a problem?

[14:06] Craig`: if it works even a little bit, it's x64 hardware ;-) [14:06] oh haha, cool.

[14:07] 2 GB [14:07] processor clock speed? [14:08] dual core intel 1.73 Ghz [14:08] I guess I'll come back later. You gents have a good afternoon.

[14:09] hey any mediawiki-knowledgeable folk in this channel?

[14:09] Jackneill: if you have a spare empty cd, just burn the iso as an "image" to it..and you should be able to install from it [14:09] ngrstan: there is #mediawiki you know? [14:10] oh - he left :-/ [14:10] ubuntu netbook editon or desktop is better for a laptop? [14:10] no i didn't [14:10] Jackneill, 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 that [14:11] Jackneill: you should try both and see which one you like better [14:11] oh okok [14:11] Jackneill: or ImgBurn..it has clear labelling as well.. [14:11] Ok need some help getting output via HDMI cable to external monitor. I will try and post one line at a time starting with what I have done and tried so far.

[14:35] jrib: http://paste.ubuntu.com/557212/ thank you for your help... everything is already updated and upgraded [14:35] [bean]: do you have a support question ? [14:35] SAM__:: Well have you tried "sudo apt-get install apache2"? === jarek is now known as Guest83104 [14:36] <[bean]> yes, how can i get these working properly? rather than using alternatives [14:36] * mellin thought that Apache was installed default [14:36] [bean]: is ur user part of sudoers group ? [14:36] <[bean]> gconf-editor should be used right? it dont work right [14:36] [bean]: you can either a.) fix the bug that's stopping them working b.) log a bug for others to fix it [14:36] mohan1111: same setup? ubuntu versions, startup services? [14:36] mellin: not with desktop Ubuntu [14:36] yeats:: Ah ok thanks. [14:36] mellin i have tried aptitude install apache2 apt-get install apache2 sudo apt-get install [14:36] hello, [14:37] Virtual-: what is jolicloud? [14:37] i've also tried apt-get remove --purge apache2 and then deleted apache2 dir [14:37] SAM__: can you paste your errors when you try those commands at http://paste.ubuntu.com ? [14:37] still nothing [14:37] jrib a distro for netbooks based on ubuntu [14:37] <[bean]> ikonia: a) if i could fix it i wouldnt be here. b) not sure what im suppose to be logging [14:37] bonjoyee: Both have ubuntu 10.10.... And no lot of softwares.. i mostly use my desktop and this laptop for browsing.. [14:37] Virtual-: well are you using ubuntu or jolicloud? [14:37] SAM__: (then share the link in channel) [14:37] Is there any way to install a 2.6.37 kernel on 10.10? [14:37] SAM__: have you run sudo aptitude update before to get te actual pakge list? [14:38] [bean]: a.) ok - so do b. b.) log a bug on launchpad.net that the tools you are expecting to work are not working, and provide details [14:38] I have got it for lucid but I haven't found it for 10.10 [14:38] SAM__: apache2 normaly installes easy, did you try change your repository mirror site? [14:38] jrib i am using jolicloud now but i installed ubuntu earlier and had the same problems with the video card driver that won't play anything and i was told smplayer should work [14:38] mohan1111: disable the boot splash on the laptop and see if theres any error... [14:38] <[bean]> so basically you are telling me, that i cant get support here and that i have to report the issue and wait for it to get fixed in the next release [14:38] i havent changed the repository mirror sites i have been having issues since i did do-release-upgrade -d [14:38] bonjoyee Ok, i will do that. Thank you [14:39] Virtual-: you need to ask in jolicloud support channels. Though if you have some sort of mixed repo setup that's likely the source of your apt issues [14:39] hello. I would like some help in creating links in dir /etc/apache2/mods-enabled. how can I do that? [14:39] Hi Everyone! need to create an image my machine? does anybody know how? [14:40] http://paste.ubuntu.com/557215/ [14:40] birrbert: you use a2enmod [14:40] [bean]: no, I'm saying you can get support, but if you are saying there is a bug in the software, no-one here will be able to just "fix it", it needs to go through the bug process [14:40] [bean]:: No one is required to assist. Some like me are just now starting to get the basics of linux down. Others more experienced may not be present, so that it is not possible for you to get help at this time ;-D [14:40] david__: clonezilla has worked best for me..theres also remastersys [14:40] bonjoyee, thank you! [14:41] SAM__: are the errors other than those warnings? [14:41] <[bean]> im willing to wait for actual help, but putting it on launchpad doesnt help me. it only helps future versions. [14:41] bonjoyee, will try clonezilla, having some problems with remastersys [14:41] no there are no other warnings [14:41] SAM__: probably faulty/corrupted .list files in those /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.list files [14:41] [bean]: that advice was only in case people aren't able to help... [14:42] in fact I am trying to fix 2 issues for my precision m4500 laptop: [14:42] - first is touchpad without scrolling bars which is fixed wit the 2.6.37 kernel I have installed on 10.04 [14:42] - second is the no sount issue from my e-port docking station wich seems resoled with 10.10 livecd. [14:42] so before upgrading I am searching to fix the first issue on 10.10 [14:42] Dandre1: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation. [14:42] [bean]: let me make it clear, no-one in this channel will "fix the code", if you want it fixed it has to go through launchpad.net [14:42] shall i delete files under /var/lib/dpkg/info/* [14:42] ? [14:42] [bean]:: That if fine..now if you state in the channel there is a bug then most likely you will be referred to where you can report it. That makes sense no? [14:42] I am not flooding [14:42] *is* [14:42] ikonia: are you sure his problem is not a configuration issue ? [14:42] SAM__: I don't think that is wise. Try sudo dpkg --configure -a first [14:42] i am explaining [14:42] !paste | Dandre1 [14:42] <[bean]> ikonia, i dont think its any code. i think its a bad config [14:42] Dandre1: For posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://tinyurl.com/imagebin | !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic. [14:42] [bean]: you said the config tools are not working and the application is not responding to the config and that it's just bad code or "bloat code" [14:43] sudo dpkg --configure -a returned nothing> [14:43] SAM__: and now a re-try of the apache2 install? [14:44] <[bean]> i said if it dont work then whats the point of it, is it bloat? i didnt say its bad code or bloat coat. and the config tools arent working but i think thats because the config for how they are setup, not becasue the program itself === onre is now known as Guest92125 [14:44] http://paste.ubuntu.com/557218/ [14:44] SAM__: you may have said this, but what is the net effect of these issues, are you not able to use apache? [14:44] [bean]: but it DOES work, many people are using it [14:44] thats correct i am unable to use apache as a result [14:45] webmin reports apache is installed and running however it is not [14:45] ciao [14:45] SAM__: webmin is unsupported here [14:45] SAM__: if you are using webmin to configure your ubuntu machine we cannot support you [14:45] im not using webmin to configure my machine [14:45] <[bean]> i should of had ntp client by default or no [14:45] webmin is not compatible with the ubuntu config layout [14:45] SAM__: I assume you looked and don't see those packages that are said missing in synaptic? simply try another mirror site http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-select-fastest-mirror-in-ubuntu.html [14:45] SAM__: you just said you are using webmin [14:46] i installed it after i ran into issues with the apache server last night [14:46] SAM__: ok - so that will break your configs [14:46] otherwise webmin was not installed [14:46] it's installed now, it's too late [14:46] jrib, thanks, but I not succeeding here. I'm trying to setup ntorrent by following this guide: http://code.google.com/p/ntorrent/wiki/SettingUpAConnection and I'm stuck at setting up apache with SCGI step 2 [14:46] it messes with the config files, or tries to [14:46] !webmin [14:46] webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. [14:47] also i cant vnc into my server... [14:47] I don't suppose there is an app. to install win 7 ultimate threw Ubuntu without virtual machine? [14:47] I have a computer that is not connecting to the local network, I have another computer that connects fine with default network setting (so network is good) the computer also connects fine when booted onto a live USB (so network card is working) Can someone help me troubleshoot this?

[14:48] SAM__: can't really help now that webmin is messing with your configs [14:48] ikonia: actually, currently SAM_ has an issue with his /var/lib/dpkg/info/*list files.

Try at a slower speed. Many cd's at 52x have failed for me [16:37] ikonia: tried burning it twice, both at 4x speed. Would installing it from a usb (seen metioned) by any disadvantage?

"sudo /etc/init.d/mysqld stop" [16:53] pilojo66|infinit: you could keep using ubuntu...

Is there a way to change this manually from terminal? [16:54] I was told a couple of days ago by someone in here, that webmin and usermin were not recommended for Ubuntu due to incompatibilities. I'd like to know what sort of incompatibilities those are if anyone can tell me? [16:54] !webmin [16:54] webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system. [16:55] How does 10.4, 10.41, and 10.10 compare? 10.10 is junk. The install program doesn't work and it is very slow patched system. I hear 10.4 is much more stable. But what about 10.41?

[17:02] every time I install ubutu I hate to connect external monitor to notebook [17:02] Roasted: lemme try...

The beating of the drums. I'd like it to play a song from my library. A lil' something to complete the epic entry i've made for my Ubuntu computer. [17:04] PeterNL, already did. VLC sucks badly on my netbook for some reason. It freezes every 20 seconds, whereas movie player works flawlessly.

[17:07] guys how to get back my panel at ubuntu 10.10 at the buttom i accidentally delete [17:07] !panel | skyfire [17:07] !panels | skyfire [17:07] skyfire: To reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel » [17:07] gpc: sorry for pm, I didn't expect such a strange rule with pm [17:07] PeterNL, well if its more CPU intensive that might make sense, despite the fact system monitor tells me I have a LOT of unused processing power even on this atom. But it would still make better sense, since the SAME videos work flawlessly on my desktop with VLC (and same ubuntu version) but that desktop is a quad core as well... [17:07] PeterNL, yeah [17:07] Virtus: not sure if there is a "correct" way, but the drums are in usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/desktop-login.ogg [17:08] Virtus: please repost your issue [17:08] Roasted: is it a dualcore atom? Maybe it uses just one core... [17:08] chupan, it's not a " strange" rule , ity's just courtesy to the volunteers who help here. [17:08] How do I change my startup-sound? The beating of the drums. I'd like it to play a song from my library. A lil' something to complete the epic entry i've made for my Ubuntu computer. [17:08] I checked Preferences > sound -- But, couldn't find an option. [17:09] i mean the only one at the buttom where trash is located [17:09] PeterNL, I don't think so... its an older 8.9" netbook. It was given to me free just a few days ago. [17:09] Virtus: did you see my suggestion? [17:09] oCean: Yes. Was just re-posting for bonjoyee1 [17:09] free? lucky bastard :D [17:09] PeterNL, system monitor shows 2 cores, but I'm not sure if that's from hyperthreading or what. [17:09] Virtus: sorry, I missed that [17:09] oCean: So, i'm safe to move it and re-name a different file to that name, yes? [17:09] Roasted: even if it's just HT, same thing applies [17:09] PeterNL, yeah, she said it didnt work and she didnt want it cause she has an ipad now, and said if I fix it, keep it. Turns out it was just XP corrupt. Hardware was good. [17:09] And, I take it you NEED it to be .ogg? [17:10] Virtus: you could try, not sure on the *ogg format though [17:10] Roasted: as usual :) Stuff doesn't break that easy, unless you drop it [17:10] how do i get my second monitor to not mirror my main one? I want to drag things to it, but not mirror it [17:10] PeterNL, super handy cause my ibook (as crappy as it was, it was handy) died 2 months ago, so this is a nice compliment since it does FAR more than my ibook could. [17:10] oCean: Is there a time limit? I'm putting an entire song :D [17:10] x3 [17:10] PeterNL, hey, not complaining here, bro :P [17:10] Virtus: again, I'm not sure :s Just give it a try [17:11] may i ask if someone know how to drop an administrative password previledge..i undertants it takes 15 mins to drop the administrative right after that i if i open synaptics it will ask again.. [17:11] Anybody just listen, please, If Ubuntu means humanity then why the problem with external monitor and nvidia cards is not fixed in releases? it just need to add some lines to xorg and block some modules [17:11] chupan, if you're using nvidia's proprietary driver, it's not ubuntu's fault, really [17:12] hi all [17:12] chupan: this is a support channel - the ubuntu developers are likely not here [17:12] I am new to ubuntu and a gnome [17:12] I can use it when I'm just installing ubuntu [17:12] right now I'm using it but I fixed all settings [17:12] I need a file manager like krusader for gnome [17:12] chupan: some things cannot be fixed as easy as it appears to be, especially not when it is about closed drivers, but don't ask me about it... [17:12] I have a device like /dev/input/event7 . Is there a way to know wich number is this device from some command ? [17:12] chupan: this is not a discussion forum, move on [17:12] but when I'm installing ubuntu everything is by default [17:12] chupan: do you have a support question? [17:12] I guess your lucky ur nvidia works my newer cuda type nvidia card wont work..i thik i already try all.. [17:13] i've had no response, is it ok to re-ask a question? [17:13] Does anybody know a y/n answer as to whether or not movie player can play video_ts files?

[17:14] cause I love ubuntu but it dosen't support some of my windows apps and also its buggy running stand alone by it self [17:14] Shadowjedi01: you might want to ask that in #virtualbox [17:14] Shadowjedi01: most probably not, but you should ask in #virtualbox [17:14] can someone pastebin /etc/apt/source files for a standard 10.04 installation prefereably USA [17:14] oh [17:14] sorry if I'm not familiar with IRC protocall [17:14] How to set env variable such that thy are available without opening the terminal [17:15] I never new the resourse was avalable to me until today [17:15] like JAVA_HOME [17:15] PeterNL: is not same thing [17:15] Encr9, you need to enable twin view ! [17:15] Shadowjedi01, you mean like the rotating cube and other fancy desktop effectS? [17:15] I am addicted to keyboard shortcuts [17:15] magellan: I think sudo -k resets the timestamp, asking for password next time sudo is used. Is that what you want?

[17:32] or i have a symlink to eclipse on desktop [17:32] and it doent find java [17:32] but if i open from terminal, thn it would work, as i have exported java home in .bashrc [17:33] clear [17:33] gnewb: ? [17:33] snimavat: Not really, but could be construde as,,, [17:33] hi guys, im working with the recovery console right now an i want to open a second terminal. do you know the command? [17:33] gnewb: i dont get u [17:34] snimavat: Here is a line of code, from 2007. still looking: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=843820 [17:34] Ok on to the next issue. I want to know how to disable blanking the screen when a laptop lid is closed? FYI I am running external monitor and keyboard so not closing the lid is a plus since it would be partially in the way [17:35] I occasionally did [17:35] jayson373, you can switch between consoles with F keys , like F1 for one console F2 for another and so on up to F6. [17:35] mellin: system>prefs>energy [17:35] my wireless card doesn't report wireless percentage, i think because it's registered as eth2 -- how can i fix this? [17:35] mounted NTFS volume, but have no any access [17:35] why? [17:35] Encr9, there should be a setting in there somewhere to enable different views ! its not my graphics card so you maybe better off asking again soon [17:35] smimavat: And here is the Ubuntu Documentation:> https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EclipseIDE [17:36] edwardteach: ok thanks anyways :) [17:36] Not working for me. im in the recovery mode [17:36] xangua:: No there is not an option for "do nothing" only blank screen which kills the display [17:36] thnx [17:36] looking into [17:36] I want to use my server just with the terminal. am i right with the recovery mode or should i deactivate the kde? [17:37] snimavat: Did you install the Java pkg? [17:37] jayson373: ctrl-alt-F1 ~ F6 [17:37] not package, but used .bin file from sun [17:37] i dont want java to be installed system wide [17:37] jayson373: but the recovery mode is not what you want, you want a ubuntu server installation [17:37] jayson373, just open a second console then [17:37] You ideally wouldnt have kde installed on a server or any other xserver window manager combo [17:37] java works [17:37] just untared it and set java home and path [17:37] jayson373:: I might suggest installing ubuntu server I think it comes without a window manager [17:38] gnewb: [17:38] Thank you. Ubuntu server is not working for me. [17:38] its not possible to install it. [17:38] snimavat: So is working? [17:38] Ubuntu server has no window manager thats correct [17:38] same error message every time. [17:38] kerneldaemon: not by default. [17:38] mounted NTFS volume, but have no any access, how to fix it? [17:38] gnewb: yes java is working [17:38] infact i can open eclipse from terminal [17:38] just symlink doesnt work [17:38] Hi all. I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.10, and find it quite nice. However, how can I get rid of the annoying "boomp" sound that occurs when you click on any buttons? [17:38] yes not by default, you can install one, any one of them but why would you want to? [17:39] jayson373:: Then if that is a problem probably best to try and just use the desktop. You can accomplish just about the same thing, except the overhead is higher due to the XServer and window manager [17:39] can someone pastebin /etc/apt/source files for a standard 10.04 installation prefereably USA [17:39] can someone pastebin /etc/apt/source files for a standard 10.04 installation prefereably USA [17:39] jayson373, what error message? [17:39] snimavat: Sweet, please post any fixes or erros on the boards so that others may use them. [17:39] Also the kernel is compiled differently for server than it is desktop [17:39] my wireless card doesn't report wireless percentage, i think because it's registered as eth2 -- how can i fix this? [17:39] SAM__: you can do it with a live [17:39] it just complains abt the java not found [17:39] if your building a server then dont install desktop [17:39] can someone pastebin /etc/apt/source files for a standard 10.04 installation prefereably USA [17:40] SAM__: you can do it with a live [17:40] what do u mean do it with a live [17:40] There is no live version of ubuntu server right? [17:40] snimavat: That last page I posted explains that. [17:40] hi === andrew_ is now known as Guest21069 [17:40] No, no live server version [17:40] gnewb: yes, i get it now [17:40] trying out [17:40] it should work [17:41] Okay. Im not the only one who got problems at installing server 64 bit from a usb stick [17:41] same error, cd rom not readable [17:41] Great so what is the process to request an option in a release patch or next version that will offer a option to do nothing with lid on laptop closed. This used to be an option in other releases [17:41] Him: in System/Preference/Sounds, perhaps uncheck "Enable window and button sounds", or if that doesn't work, you can set the sound theme to "No Sounds". I don't think there is really much control over individual sounds unless you edit the themes [17:43] blah [17:43] so, stupidity strikes again [17:43] if you resize a partition, will it only use free space? [17:43] How can i leave the recovery console? [17:43] trism: If I disable window and button sounds, will alerts and stuff still come through? [17:44] Hey there; is it possible to find the Evolution icon used for the mail button top-right's file location?

[17:47] Him: all sound should work as usual, it should just disable the desktop sound effects, which alert sounds do you mean? [17:47] hey [17:47] exit and resume is not working for me [17:47] I have vdr that shoudl run at startup but it doesn't. does upstart have something to do with this ? [17:47] r3in, how can you destroy X, you may have destroyed your window manager by mistake . [17:47] jayson373, couldn't you just reboot? "sudo shutdown -r now" [17:47] trism: Like, say a dialog box pops up, or a warning saying "HEY DOUCHEBAG, YOU CAN'T DO THAT!".

[17:49] No, but I've installed linux on other systems before using those same DVDs [17:49] without any issues [17:49] it's an issue exclusive to this one computer [17:49] Emily_: what kind of graphics card? [17:49] how: I'm not exactly sure, but I ended up removing a majority of my pacakges [17:49] Galaxy GeForce 460 768mb [17:49] r3in, explain what's happening ..don't tell us what you think happened ..just tell us what isn't working [17:50] i have partitionned my disk this way pri|pri|extented|pri and i want to absorb the last primary into the extended one, is it easy/not too dangerous ? [17:50] Emily_: if you're sure you want to install, you can try the alternate CD [17:50] Yes I'm sure [17:50] hi, can I install ubuntu 10.04 on raid5 with lvm? [17:50] Which alternate CD is that? Is there a download link? [17:50] !alternate | Emily_ [17:50] Emily_: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal [17:50] BluesKaj, I cant really explain, as my errors are in french [17:50] alright thank you.

I only know how to do the date, "date -R >> file.txt" How can I put a name in front of it? [17:53] sorry, I just wanted to make sure i wouldnt be making it... worse... by trying that [17:53] Rypervenche, echo text $(date -R) >> file.txt [17:53] Him: if you want to leave the sounds enabled, you could always locate the annoying sound in /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo and replace it or just delete it [17:54] rumpe1: Thank you very much :D [17:54] trism: I'll try that then.

[17:59] BluesKaj, wifi [17:59] Hey, are the files for the taskbar icons available online somewhere (or in the file system)? Where? [18:00] warlock: I wonder if it has something to do with twinview..

[19:06] nep0x: sudo rmmod unwantedmodulename [19:07] danst_, there is no /dev/fd0, so I suppose the cables in within the PC case are not connected. is that possible? [19:07] how do I go about completely uninstalling a program? I want a clean install cause I screwed up my current one [19:07] t [19:07] pepee: i have installed ubuntu 10.04 thrice. [19:07] ahhh! thanks! [19:08] pepee: is there a way to generate "UPDATED" ubuntu CD with all the programs installed and all the updates run? [19:08] ok, how do you get ubuntu to boot up with the number lock on?? [19:08] ttr1, tried 10.10? [19:08] Hello, all. Just installed Ubuntu x32 bit on my computer and am trying to update it. The update manager says "Waiting for jockey backend to exit" and just sits there. Anyone know what's up? [19:08] ttr1, yes, you can do that, I don't really know how [19:08] pepee: i am afraid not. i have full confidence in LTS but nort on 10.10. sorry [19:09] ok, how do you get ubuntu to boot up with the number lock on?? [19:09] ronr__: i missed it. i will scroll up [19:09] magicianlord: thanks. [19:09] ttr1, what about installing 9.10 and upgrade from it? [19:09] pepee: this way i can install XP and reinstall ubuntu 10.04 to the same point it was stopped [19:09] Guest38796, sudo apt-get remove --purge program .... sudo apt-get install program [19:09] the command was modprobe [19:10] Also, in order to boot Ubuntu, I must have the parameter acpi=off. Why is this? [19:10] ronr__: update the system first. reboot. then install nvidia and reboot [19:10] pepee: i hqaven't tried that too. since i began my journey with 10.04 LTS [19:10] you can often set up num lock in the computers BIOS [19:10] quiescens: i think the security support logic needs to be reevaluated if the vlc team says it's improper [19:10] nep0x: rmmod module [19:10] quack, that program checks for non-free drivers for you system, maybe that needs to quit before you can upgrade? [19:10] ttr1, also, try kubuntu, xubuntu, etc [19:11] magicianlord: and if I haven't done that already, any way to rescue? it seems that from the GRUB screen, if I choose the server kernel, it gives me the same error and if I choose the generic kernel, it loads up fine. [19:11] pepee: you raised that right issue. is the "background" code same for xubuntu, edubuntu etv? [19:11] ttr1, yes, the background is the same [19:12] debian [19:12] lol [19:12] trijntje_netbook: But I haven't got that open [19:12] pepee: i mean all the commands of ubuntu still work there? all the documentation of ubuntu is still relavany thete? [19:12] erUSUL: wificrusher:/usr/src/linux-2.6.37# cat .config | grep GSPCA -i [19:12] hey all. anyone know of a decent network scanner like nessus but free? [19:12] erUSUL: returns nothing lol [19:12] I am connected to another system using ssh. how do I disconnect? [19:12] ttr1, yes, except for the window manager and a lot of desktop programs... [19:12] Jon30: type exit [19:12] Jon30: exit your shell [19:13] Jon30: or press ctrl-D [19:13] Jon30: ^D [19:13] hmm didn't work. and i don't wanna close the window [19:13] danst_: grep -ci gspca 2.6.37/.config --> 37 [19:13] ttr1, anyway, you can intall whatever you want [19:13] ctrl D didn't work either [19:13] quack, in that case I dont know, maybe cancel the upgrade and try again? [19:13] Jon30: ps ax | grep ssh [19:13] Jon30: typing 'exit' and hitting enter should exit [19:13] Jon30: on local machine [19:13] exit didn't work [19:13] pepee: pepee: do they recognize wifi internet, wifi allinone orinter the same way? [19:13] anyone experienced with PPTPD ? I am not understanding the values i have to put to localip/remoteip on my .conf? it works but is not routing over the internet [19:13] Jon30: and kill ssh process that you need [19:13] Jon30: there is no real harm in closing the window [19:13] yea i will just close the window then thanks [19:14] erUSUL: but why [19:14] erUSUL: I got this kernel from kernel.org [19:14] Jon30: you can hit enter, followed by '~.' without the quotes if you want to close the connection [19:14] ttr1, kinda, but they use different programs depending on what desktop manager you use [19:14] gunzip backup.img.gz | dd of=/dev/sda does not work - why? [19:14] look i know its stupid, i figured it out long ago on red hat but i cant remember/figue out how on ubuntu [19:14] danst_: how did you configured it? [19:14] i just want it to start with number lock engaged [19:14] can someone point me to a room for getting a vulnerability scanner similiar to nessus but free? [19:14] ttr1, you can configure your system completely [19:15] hmm, in my ~/.profile it has the if [-d "$HOME/bin"]; then PATH = "$HOME/bin:$PATH" fi [19:15] but i can't run stuff i put in there [19:15] raven: try gunzip backup.img.gz > /dev/sda [19:15] pepee: configure means? pls elaborate? [19:15] magicianlord: sorry for bugging you, just not sure if you saw my last response. [19:15] i chmod +x it,, but is the .profile being executed? [19:15] magicianlord: i don't know the specifics, and i don't see any specific reference to security issues, just that it is out of date [19:15] erUSUL: uhh, just tar -xf kernelhurrdurr.tar.gz then got into it's dir and did make menuconfig then make and copied vmlinux to my server to boot over network using it [19:15] ttr1, right now I'm using lxde, I've used KDE, I removed a lot of programs and installed some other [19:15] ronr__: i didnt [19:15] NET||abuse: you need to login again after creating ~/ibn [19:15] NET||abuse: you need to login again after creating ~/bin [19:15] NET||abuse: you could always add it to the global path if you want all users to have access to run the stuff (/etc/environment) [19:15] erUSUL: I can show you .config file if it matters [19:16] magicianlord: and if I haven't done that already, any way to rescue? it seems that from the GRUB screen, if I choose the server kernel, it gives me the same error and if I choose the generic kernel, it loads up fine. [19:16] jrib, i restart gnome-terminal, that's not enough? [19:16] quiescens: they say on the site that it's not proper security support [19:16] NET||abuse: no [19:16] pepee: i see. what is good in LXDE? [19:16] danst_: when you do make manuconfig you have to go to drivers/media or some such and enable the drivers there [19:16] jrib, that's a pain. [19:16] danst_: it is easier if you just copy de ubuntu config from boot and do make oldconfig [19:16] PeterNL, that now decompresses the file but does not write it on sda [19:16] ronr__: why are you choosing server kernel? are you on a desktop system [19:16] danst_: and even easier is to use the kernel-ppa ;P [19:16] ttr1, and I installed ubuntu long time ago... this is the same installed OS lol [19:17] raven: where does it write then? [19:17] cant you do something like "PATH=/usr/bin;/script;export path"? [19:17] hi [19:17] magicianlord: I don't know how it got installed. so I should remove the server kernel and it should boot up fine? [19:17] and then he will have it for now till he restarts? [19:17] I need some help plz! [19:17] ttr1, low resources consumptioon [19:17] PeterNL to the dir the gz is in [19:17] !ask | ffffff [19:17] ffffff: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) [19:17] ttr1, perfect for a laptop [19:17] cpu frequency scaling monitor and grep MHz /proc/cpuinfo both shows that cpu core speed changes independently, but cpufreq-info |grep curr shows that the individual cores change frequencies all at the same time. Which do I believe? [19:17] danub: sort of, but depends on what you mean by "have it" too :P [19:18] erUSUL: I am debian actually [19:18] pepee: i see. thanks for the info. i'm made up my mind for edubuntu. since i have 7 yrs kid [19:18] danst_: then ask in #debian ;P [19:18] raven: oh... try zcat instead :) [19:18] pepee: what is ur suggestion [19:19] I have an img file which is my router firmware and cant be opened by the regular img openers like alcohol or daemon tools, it cant be mounted and not converted to an iso file. In fact when I try to unzip it, it says that the img file is not in iso format, however I want to open it and view its files any ideas? (my router is linksys wag200g) [19:19] erUSUL: uhh so, here -> http://touhou.ru/upload/e13354c1029e51ad80d27af325605d0a.png > unchecked multimedia support -> http://touhou.ru/upload/807ad0f50d128a8a04aab8d1e7a952b4.png > nothing when I select it [19:19] hey guys quick question.. and thanks for yoru help yesterday... my battery meeter just always says calculating but never brings up a status is there some sort of conditioning i need to do in order for it to figure out full charge and empty?? [19:19] ffffff: why do you ask here? This is #ubuntu [19:19] PeterNL what is that and how does the command will look like? [19:19] erUSUL: I don't think there's much difference between compiling kernel downloaded from kernel.org in debian or ubuntu [19:19] because I run ubuntu [19:19] plz help! [19:19] ttr1, well, IIRC, edubuntu is "locked". you know, kids are curious :) [19:19] erUSUL hey its me again. (i ended up having to use a external monitor to see enough and properly install the drivers) just in case you remember me [19:20] ronr__: you could try remove that kernel, yes. but have a regular ubuntu iso cd or usb stick ready to reinstall if necessary [19:20] erUSUL: I mean is it okay if Multimedia menu consists of absolutely nothing? [19:20] oh well [19:20] PeterNL: how do I bake an apple pie? (using ubuntu) [19:20] ffffff: find out the exact fomrmat and filesystem of the imag file [19:20] magicianlord: if there is a specific known issue you could check whether it has been dealt with, but a generic comment from one side or the other isn't going to help matters [19:20] raven: zcat outputs to stdout, gunzip outputs to a file in the directory from the original file === AbhiJit is now known as Guest96053 [19:20] danst_: no; let me check here [19:20] pepee: i didn't quite get? === AbhiJit_ is now known as AbhiJit [19:20] quiescens: understand [19:20] erUSUL: How can I do that? [19:20] PeterNL could you give me the command then? [19:20] ffffff: you might try « file /path/to/file » [19:20] guys, is there a daemon for ubuntu, that would check eth0 interface, and if it is down, would restart it... my server in 1/4 times bootsup without network... [19:20] is 11.04 stable enough now? [19:20] hello [19:20] ffffff: maybe the command file can help [19:20] magicianlord: 11.04 is not stable by definition [19:21] will someone with a good knowledge of grub2 and grub please check out http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10390058 [19:21] magicianlord: I have it since I reinstalled just last night. I'm trying to figure out how to remove the server kernel. I found the generic kernels in the Synaptic but can't seem to find the server ones. [19:21] i have ati sound card, sound is working in headphone but not in builtin speaker [19:21] jrib: well, overclock your cpu, run dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/null for every core you have, and you've got yourself an over running ubuntu :D [19:21] PeterNL: heh [19:21] @all : how can I get done? [19:21] raven: zcat yourimage.gz > /dev/sda [19:21] ok [19:21] pepee: locked means, can't i install? [19:21] jrib: s/over/oven/ [19:22] so is there a trick to getting a battery meter working ?? it always says estimating .. not following exactly what i might be able to do to get it to actually calculate its status [19:22] ttr1, yes, can't do things easily [19:22] danst_: drivers>multimedia support>video capture>v4l usb devices [19:23] pepee: ok. is kubuntu good for my problem? [19:23] What's a better video format for my portable media player for 320x240 videos? It supports xvid and mp4, no ogg vorbis/theora... [19:24] I installed proprietory video drivers now I cant get past splash even when I set nomodeset or remove quiet and splash from grub [19:24] ttr1, try xubuntu live cd. if you have the same problem, you should try some other thing.. [19:24] exit [19:24] pepee: thansk. thanks for ur time [19:25] Cpt_Zyph: drain to zero then recharge [19:25] ttr1, you are welcome :) [19:25] pepee: already late to sleep. gn [19:25] magicanlord so leave OS runing until bat dies on its own.. then come home in 6 hrs or so and recharge .. does this need to happen with Ubuntu up and runing? [19:25] gn ttr1 [19:26] PeterNL how to display the state? [19:26] err, not really possible, but it is possible with dd [19:26] raven: zcat image.gz | dd if=/dev/stdin of=/dev/sda [19:27] raven: and then in a 2nd terminal, killall -USR1 dd [19:27] repeat the last command to refresh the status [19:28] erUSUL: yay, works, thank you [19:28] danst_: no problem [19:28] zcat image.gz | pv > /dev/sda === IR9446 is now known as lacynh [19:29] erUSUL: what is pv? [19:29] PeterNL: a program that displays bandwith and stats in pipes [19:29] !info pv [19:29] pv (source: pv): Shell pipeline element to meter data passing through. In component universe, is optional. Version 1.1.4-1 (maverick), package size 28 kB, installed size 140 kB [19:30] Cpt_Zyph: you should be there when it dies and recharge it [19:30] cool! Somewhat like USR1, but way more flexible [19:30] can't get nanny to prevent a user to log in while the lock is on? Anyone managed to get it running properly? [19:30] why has vlc 1.1.4 not been updated to 1.1.5 yet? [19:30] !latest | magicianlord [19:30] magicianlord: Packages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa. [19:30] how is it stability with insecurity? [19:31] PeterNL: want to copy somthing with prograess bar? « pv something_big > /path/to/destination/file » [19:31] magicanlord i see.. humm its a pretty large bat.. trying to think of when i will have 6-8 hrs is to let it drain... but correct me if im wrong.. run OS with battery maybe turn on a ton of media to speed it up... disable hyb and sleep features to allow bat to fully drain.. then charge and run OS at same time or just charge it while system is off?? [19:31] vlc 1.1.4 is not that bad, and 1.1.5 is probably being tested right now === pooja is now known as disislobo [19:32] Which is better for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - vmware Player or Virtualbox? [19:32] disislobo: i vote virtualbox [19:32] will someone with a good knowledge of grub2 and grub please check out http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10390058 [19:32] vbox [19:32] i use that exact combo [19:32] Cpt_Zyph: that just lets the battery recalibrate [19:32] New user of ubuntu here, having problems with post-install bugs on my Toshiba laptop, anyone up for giving me a hand? [19:33] PeterNL: or not tested [19:33] magicanlord but that is how i should do it right? just making sure there is nothing special i need to do im not aware of. [19:33] yes, just use it until the battery goes to zero === NG_ is now known as ng_ [19:33] magicianlord: it's just ubuntu policy, if you don't like it you should use somthing like debian testing (I use both) [19:34] OK vbox it is. Thanks bachstudies and pepee. (This is to run Windows on Ubuntu virtually. Does that make a difference in your vote?) [19:34] Ibn_Ali_al-Turki, what if you run pardus and reinstall ubuntu from there? [19:34] PeterNL: i use that too [19:35] disislobo: no, not at all...I also run OSX on my imac and virtually run XP, Windows 7 and Ubuntu [19:35] I use VBox as well for lots of things including windows. If you need sound from windows 7 however, use VBox 4 beta... [19:35] disislobo, I have xp vms, and my win7 physical partition running on vbox :) [19:35] i think ubuntu should stop providing vlc in it's repos, so the team could provide a deb on the website that's current and secure [19:35] PeterNL, why would you need both? [19:35] magicianlord: 1.1.5 is in natty, ubuntu's policy is not to update releases from one to another, bugfixes are backported when applicable and possible, if this isn't enough for you, you'll have to update manually from a different source, or something to that effect === ass is now known as hole_ [19:35] how is 1.1.5 not a security fixA [19:35] brontoeee: I need at least one OS for every machine, right? And I like trying everything [19:35] magicianlord, that's what patches are for [19:36] it should already be in 10.04 and 10.10 repos [19:36] magicianlord: do you have a specific security fix that has not been backported to the 1.1.4 which is currently in 10.10? [19:36] Well, not everything, but lots of things. [19:36] PeterNL, ok. just courious what could debian do... [19:36] quiescens: i didnt read all of it. but hte shoutcast thing is one [19:36] I've installed ubuntu on my laptop, and it loads into the command line. If I let it sit for a few minutes there it will lock up with a blank screen. It will only respond to the press of a power button, which brings back the command line and says it is now going to restart. [19:36] i'm trying to install ubuntu with unetbootin how should my usb disc be partitioned? [19:37] hole_: are you install it to a hard drive? [19:37] magicianlord, you tried exploiting the vulnerability? [19:37] Is there a safe-boot option? a way "Safe-mode" so to speak? [19:37] hello, builtin speaker is not working..... i checked the sound preferences too.... only head phone is working.... i am confused [19:37] brontoeee: it's very much like ubuntu,. but it has newer versions of most packages, and a more basic installer (the same as ubuntu server). Afaik ubuntu is directly based of it. [19:37] pepee: i dont have time for that [19:37] i will be after i prepare a usb stick [19:37] It will also do this if I do "sudo startx", but when I press the power button it shows a window talking about not being able to load the devices, and asks me if I want to run it in a low graphics mode... but just resets, due to the pressing of the power button [19:37] Anyone have any advice on what I can do to fix this? [19:38] PeterNL, i see. [19:38] magicianlord i will be after i prepare a usb stick [19:38] pepee and bachstudies: The latest version of vbox isn't in the repos. So should I trust the repos only or is it safe to download from vbox's website? [19:38] anyone can help me how to fix this? [19:38] hole_: the usb stick doesnt have to be prepared in any specific way. just install to it without persistance. then you can partition your hdd if install the actual os [19:38] disislobo: vbox has it's own repos somewhere, ask in #virtualbox [19:38] disislobo, vbox site version is non-free i belive, has more features [19:38] disislobo, I'm using vbox from the website [19:39] is their a PPS repository file for google chrome? [19:39] using 3.2 [19:39] magicianlord, http://www.unixmen.com/software/1304-vlc-115-is-released-ppa-ubuntu-a-linuxmint [19:39] VBox OSE has VNC, PUEL has RDP and USB support [19:39] Loading a vbox VM on start-up freezes my machine on start-up. Can't even ssh into it.... Is there a safe-mode boot so that I can fix it without a complete reinstall? [19:40] Thanks all! [19:40] pepee: what is that [19:40] dsevigny: does GRUb work? hold ctrl while booting to see the grub menu, and select recovery mode [19:40] ey guys I did file path/to/file and it returned back data [19:41] what is this supposed to mean? [19:41] Thanks. Grub does indeed work. [19:41] ffffff: unknown file. But not text based in any way [19:41] PeterNL: Will SSH load on recovery mode? [19:41] dsevigny: afaik not [19:41] so what now? [19:41] how can I view the contained files [19:41] ffffff: What do you want to do with your file? [19:41] ffffff: What do you know about the file [19:42] I just want to view whats inside and edit it [19:42] I know its a linksys firmware [19:42] uh... [19:42] Ah... [19:42] ffffff: you realize that the firmwares are usually encrypted or smth right? [19:42] I have seen some posts around the web about mounting it and viewing the files [19:42] magicianlord: i still don't know which issue you're talking about [19:42] ffffff, hd -v 'file' | less [19:42] ffffff: read those, and follow their steps [19:42] whats that pepee [19:43] what sd* is usually a usb stick [19:43] hexdump of the file [19:43] ass: the first unused one [19:43] ok [19:43] Is there a function for making a list distinct: I have a list a:=b c d b Is there a function to return "b c d" (the unique items)? [19:43] ass: it should be mounted automatically === ass is now known as hole_ [19:44] In a makefile... [19:44] sveinse: sort -u [19:44] at which point does ti become unsafe to use an ubuntu release and it'stime to upgrade to the next one? [19:44] the reason is ubuntu wont show my flash drive [19:44] I've managed to mess up my main box badly enough that I can't log in to Gnome. It looks like it's a path/permissions problem; details forthcoming [19:44] dsevigny, you can try using netconsole to see the system logs [19:44] not ubuntu i mean unetbootin [19:44] !lts | magicianlord [19:44] Is there any fix for ati+wine+opengl in ubuntu 10.10 ?! [19:44] magicianlord: LTS means Long Term Support. LTS versions of Ubuntu will be supported for 3 years on the desktop, and 5 years on the server. The current LTS version of Ubuntu is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04) [19:44] dsevigny, http://www.google.com/search?q=netconsole&num=50 [19:44] does google chrome have a PPS repository file or a APT line that anyobody knows of? [19:44] !support | magicianlord [19:44] the reason is UNETBOOTIN wont show my flash drive [19:44] magicianlord: The official ubuntu support channel is #ubuntu. Also see http://ubuntu.com/support and http://ubuntuforums.org and http://askubuntu.com [19:44] text from .xsession-errors: /etc/dgm/Xsession 176: ls: not found [19:44] Wait, that;s not what i meant [19:45] PeterNL: Sorry, I forgot to say its in a makefile [19:45] /etc/gdm/Xsession: ssh-agent not found! [19:45] i thought lts was 2 years [19:45] bp7lax: chromium is already in repositories and is open source [19:45] /etc/gdm/Xsession: Setup done, will execute: gnome-session [19:45] exec 1: gnome-session: not found [19:45] magicianlord: 1,5 years for regular releases, 3 years for LTS desktop releases and 5 years for LTS server releases [19:45] xangua: i accidentaly deleted my repositories [19:45] I get the login screen, attempt to login, the screen flashes and returns me to the login screen again [19:46] PeterNL: then how come last one was 8.04 and now it's 10.04? that's tow year [19:46] maybe sdb1? [19:46] magicianlord: because 8.04 is still supported for another year after 10.04 is out [19:46] Furthermore, when I SSH in or log in from a tty console, I get the error "-bash: /home/tcepsa/.bashrc: Permission denied" but if I then run bash from the subsequent prompt, it works fine. [19:47] hello, about the firmware thing. I found tomato which is a hacked firmware, and I have the source code as well, would that mean I can create my own firmware and upload it successfully or I need to know the encryption method etc [19:47] Any ideas on what's actually broken and how to fix it here?

[19:49] i have windows [19:49] ;) [19:49] phong_, then delete ubuntu [19:50] and i do like ubuntu [19:50] So use whatever you want on whatever OS works best with it :) [19:50] run windows in virtualbox === wema|off is now known as wemaflo [19:50] magicianlord: as far as 1.1.5, the only security fix listed on http://www.videolan.org/developers/vlc-branch/NEWS for>1.1.5 is a Windows crash VideoLAN-SA-1006 [19:50] And yes, you can run both OSes in a vm (both ways) just fine. or dualboot. Or get two (or more) machines :) [19:51] why there aren't many software for linux? [19:51] But what's a good video format for my portable media player for 320x240 videos?

[19:51] phong_: there is lots of software for linux, you just need to know where to find it [19:51] Hi, how come if i have no programs running, my hard drive is still writing/reading? (i can see the light occasionally flash). how do i make it so it doesnt write to the hard drive? [19:51] phong_: there are so [too] many software for linux [19:51] PeterNL, what player?

In the end the fix was to install ubuntu :D [19:53] brontoeee: no-name cheap-ass player. But it comes with a manual on cd (pdf). [19:54] quiescens: my issue with 1.06 was shoutcast doesn work anymroe, so i upped it to 1.1.5. unless there is a way to remove that plugin and add icecast to it [19:54] PeterNL, just check what they mean with mp4, is that AVC or h.264 or something else? [19:54] but hopefully there wont be any issues using 1.1.5 from the repos [19:54] brontoeee: doesn't say [19:54] magicianlord: i wasn't aware shoutcast was reenabled even in 1.1.5 [19:55] Hi, how come if i have no programs running, my hard drive is still writing/reading? (i can see the light occasionally flash). how do i make it so it doesnt write to the hard drive? [19:55] it just says "MP3/WMA / ADPCM / WAV/ APE / FLAC,WMV/RM/RMVB/AVI(Xvid)/MP4/FLV,JPEG/BMP/GIF" [19:56] quiescens: it isnt reenabled. its just replaced by icecast and shoutcast is removed. i dont know ow toremove shoutcast plugin from 1.0.6 and add icecast. if i did, i wouldnt needto upgrade to 1.1.5 === JoFo__ is now known as JoFo [19:56] Hi ! Is there any fix for ati+wine+opengl in ubuntu 10.10 ?! [19:57] how do i get the window icons in the top left of the window over to the right please? [19:57] PeterNL, try with handbrake, use ipod profile which will give you baseline h.264 mp4, that might work, if not use xvid, dunno the gui that would encode to xvid avi on ubuntu thought [19:57] maybe avidemux [19:57] @all : how can I get done? === JoFo__ is now known as JoFo [19:58] brontoeee: is there a way for handbrake to estimate resulting filesize and finetune bitrate?

[20:02] It's not rocket science or something [20:03] it is hard sometimes [20:03] and the decision are critical [20:04] magicianlord, critical in what way? [20:04] huh? [20:04] suddenly I get an error message on startup [20:04] VLC doesn't break that easily [20:04] critical in the way that it does not work, right?? [20:04] "No init found. Try passing init= bootarg." [20:04] magicianlord, an app is just a lot of files... [20:04] and it drops to a busy box shell thingie [20:04] @bhuwan go to system -> preferences -> sound -> input, ajust the input volume slider; [20:05] And if it breaks, just revert to the previous version, and/or ask here [20:05] cpu frequency scaling monitor and grep MHz /proc/cpuinfo both shows that cpu core speed changes independently, but cpufreq-info |grep curr shows that the individual cores change frequencies all at the same time.

[20:05] if they do not, it bothers me [20:05] @izuzizu: had checked that one too... works with headphone, but not with builtin sound... changed input and output devices ... and still no result [20:06] flexy, cpuinfo [20:06] magicianlord, thats hard to accomplish thought, the only apps that work perfectly for me are the ones i wrote :P [20:07] haha [20:07] pepee: ok [20:08] hi to all i need an assistance about ubuntu on vmware hardening? [20:08] flexy, btw cpufreq-info is showing different freqs if I just put one core to work [20:08] lol, the handbrake binary is called ghb... ;) [20:08] i can mount my partitions, at least i can mount /BOOT and /HOME but it wont start [20:08] hi guys, ive got a simple question re gnome's startup applications... [20:09] Hello [20:09] i need advices and information (if possible an ESX image) about an ubuntu LTS for a MYSQL DB server [20:09] i'm trying to delay the startup of conky, so i added the following command: sleep 3 && conky [20:09] but it doesn't work executing that from there.. [20:09] BajK_, installed grub? [20:09] I installed ubuntu, using Wubi, but it doesn't boot after completing installation [20:09] In the windows 7 boot loader, ubuntu is shown, but in Ubuntu's own boot loader, it isn't showing Ubuntu [20:09] pepee: i tried mounting my root partition and it said something like "Unrecovered read error - auto reallocate failed, failed to read block at offset wjhatever error loading journal" [20:09] and then it fails [20:10] mounting /dev/sda7 on / failed: Invalid argument [20:10] Please somebody solve my problem [20:10] BajK_, hmm no idea, sorry.. [20:10] BajK_, you can google those error messages [20:10] oh man i just wanted to go to bed and take my notebook with me tomorrow.. [20:10] i dont wanna do a reinstall [20:11] pepee: cpufreq-info shows the same frequency here, but /proc/cpuinfo shows different frequencies (when I lock other cpu core to full and other to min freq) [20:11] husnainlatif, the usual solution for wubi seems to be : use virtualbox or real install [20:11] flexy, what cpu? [20:11] I have a GPS, and I want to run a script every time it's mounted, any pointers to a tutorial or otherwise? [20:11] ----------============ any one has any experiende on ESX ubuntu hardening=======------ [20:11] intel u9400 1.4GHz (laptop) [20:11] hello good folks. When interacting with the gnome gui, is there a way to view the commands the gnome issued to the system ? Kind of like a log file where all the commands issued by the gui is logged at ? [20:11] pepee: ^ [20:11] Hi, I have no programs running and yet my hard drive keeps working every 1-2 seconds, for a slight moment. im afraid this will damage my hard drive in the long term, so how do I make it so that it stops doing read/writes in the background unnecessarily? does anyone know what is doing this? [20:11] Is it safe to use unison to synchronize the /etc directory? Or are some config files specific to a certain machine? [20:11] flexy, mine is amd QL-65 [20:12] ezy, not really [20:12] @bhuwan: is the hardware itself fine? if your headphone is fine then the sound device is fine... well, I assume [20:12] Will I have to repartition my Harddrive in order to install ubuntu? [20:12] ezy, it's sort of a wrong concept to think it "issues commands to the system" [20:12] gnome startup > multiple commands... anybody? [20:12] EnergySpirit: many will be specific [20:12] pepee: I'm not sure what to believe, because cpufreq-info and /proc/cpuinfo disagrees... [20:12] EnergySpirit: fatab for instance [20:12] husnainlatif, not if you use virtualbox [20:13] whats virtual box? [20:13] !virtualbox [20:13] virtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from the package 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox [20:13] flexy, try this: on one terminal execute: yes | md5sum , and then see what happens [20:13] !virtualizer [20:13] There are several solutions for running other operating systems (or their programs) inside Ubuntu, while using the native CPU as much as possible: !QEmu (with !KQemu), !VirtualBox, !VMWare, as well as !WINE and !Cedega for Windows applications [20:13] !free [20:13] freedom is important. Ubuntu is as free as we can make it, which means mostly free software. See http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html and http://www.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/licensing [20:13] weird they're selling that now [20:13] jono? :) [20:13] flexy or use "&&" for commands follows each other [20:13] Milosz, interesting...does it mean that some of the commands issued are actually machine or assembly language ? [20:13] erUSUL what do you mean? I went to power settings and clicked "power down hard drive when inactive" and it doesnt stop it from constantly being in use. [20:13] pepee: I already did that with dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/null and the behaviour was the same [20:14] husnainlatif, in your case you need virtualbox for windows, since windows will be your host OS and ubuntu guest [20:14] EnergySpirit: ouch sorry the commant was for EnigmaticCoder [20:14] izuzizu@ya it was fine in earlier windows os [20:14] pepee: any Idea how i could restore that partition or something? but ill try with the kubuntu disc maybe it recognizes it [20:14] Cronist: that dd command uses up one core pretty good :) [20:14] EnigmaticCoder: many will be specific ; fatab for instance [20:15] I'm downloading Virtual box for windows 7 now [20:15] is that right to do that? [20:15] erUSUL: Thank you. [20:15] but after i went ti ubuntu its not working [20:15] never seen the flood bot before 8/ try to set up settings so i can auto join and i get floodbott'd [20:15] BajK_, check file systems, and the partition table [20:15] husnainlatif, thats the easy way to play with distros [20:16] BajK_, use cfdisk [20:16] may i ask were awn stores its settings.. im trying to reinstall it becuase things got messed up but its retaining old settings and i think that is part of my problem [20:16] erUSUL: Any suggestions on choosing which to synchronize? [20:16] I would almost say reinstalling would be quicker than trying to resuce it^^ all my configs are at /home so reinstalling would leave me with almost the exact configuration like i had before *g [20:16] ----------============ any one here who has experiende on vmware ESX ubuntu mysql server hardening=======------ [20:16] flexy, may be a bug or something in cpufreq-info [20:17] izuzizu@ it was fine in windows but when i switch to ubuntu there its problem [20:17] with inbulit speaker [20:17] ..... [20:17] EnigmaticCoder: maybe ( hard to say i duno what your requirements are) you want to take a look at tools like puppet or cfengine [20:17] erUSUL: Will do. :) [20:18] pepee: might be. Then again my friend says this cpu should not be able to change frequencies independently... both cores should have the same frequency all times... I'm confused :) [20:19] uhhh, i am thinking about that... my laptop speaker works as intended... [20:19] flexy, the power of linux? xD [20:19] pepee: it says "FATL ERROR: cannot access hard disk" [20:19] wong: probably in ~/.awn or ~/.config/awn or somewhere similar [20:19] okay trying fsck /dev/sda7 [20:19] restoring journal [20:19] sounds good === husnainlatif is now known as zz_husnainlatif [20:20] wong: do « find ~/ -iname '*awn*' -print » [20:20] erUSUL thanks it was .config [20:20] hi. Is there a cli command for controling media playback? For example, can I pause/play something running in Movie Player, but from a cli? [20:20] pepee: perhaps. My friend is a devoted Win user, so he might be correct if one uses win :D [20:20] erUSUL im about to learn the find command more i need to know how to use that.. thx [20:20] Hi. I have tried to upgrade an EEEPC 701 notebook to the maverick release, unfortunately, it failed during the install process. Now, i can' t start no X-session. But i am able to run a shell in a TTY.

[20:20] TurtleCrazy, sudo apt-get dist-upgrade [20:21] any good gparted user ?? need to merge 2 partitions [20:21] Anyone know of a quick, yet interesting way to configure the system so that when somedomain.com/org/etc is typed into a browser, it will first look to localhost before it seeks out the host over the internet? [20:21] BajK_: once upon a time, I was in train Moscow->St.Petersburg, and I had osx and linux dualboot.

That went well right up to the point where I was dropped to a command line after removing the desktop packages. Specifically, I can no longer connect to my wifi network. [20:41] have prblem with a boot another systems [20:41] EnergySpirit: I would leave, cause cron start maintenance jobs and syslog keeps system informations log [20:41] <|NX|> I can set the essid and key on my wlan0 device just fine [20:41] <|NX|> but it will not associate with the AP [20:41] master wht type of probelms [20:42] ok so.. i have a ubuntu 10.10 .iso.. but i dont have a cd drive or usb [20:42] <|NX|> dmesg gives me tons and tons of wlan0: dropped data frame to not assocaited station 00:00:00:00:00:00 [20:42] the probelm is that i just install a xubunto and all of my systems is goo off. [20:42] hwo do i install it without either one [20:42] apt-get install network-manager [20:42] nx are trying to connct to wifi to dl the netbook package? [20:42] on a windows box [20:43] pepee: aptitude is quite cool, but I can't figure out how to specify jockey-common 0.5.10-0ubuntu5.2 instead of 5.1, in fact I can't find it, but that's the one that fixes the nvidia issues.. [20:43] <|NX|> hrdcore1a4: aye [20:43] Wasup [20:44] <|NX|> trying to connect to wifi [20:44] <|NX|> izuzizu: I can't apt-get install network-manager b/c I'm not connected to the internet [20:44] TomV-415: apt-get install jockey-common=0.5.10-0ubuntu5.2 [20:45] |NX|: do you have the ubuntu cd? add your cd to your repositories, then apt-get install gnome-network-manager [20:45] <|NX|> there is no cd drive [20:45] <|NX|> so, no I don't [20:45] |NX|: you are online now, aren't you? You can download the .deb from packages.ubuntu.com [20:45] Muelli: thanks [20:45] Hello [20:45] <|NX|> Muelli: I'm on a seperate machine [20:46] TomV-415, do you actually need jockey installed? [20:46] |NX|: then get a thumbdrive. [20:46] <|NX|> Muelli: I don't have gnome installed [20:46] Does anybody know if there's a list somewhere of supported video formats that Totem supports? [20:46] if i do 'sudo service gdm stop' .. it stops gnome. how can i easily stop gnome from booting on startup. [20:46] <|NX|> Its essentially an ubuntu-minimal [20:46] |NX|: so? [20:46] <|NX|> gnome tools won't work when I don't even have an X environment to configure them in [20:47] I just installed the 2.6.37 generic kernel in 10.10. Need some help on this. [20:47] <|NX|> All I want to do is get iwconfig to work properly [20:47] Roasted: kinda. you can check gst-inspect [20:47] !ask | MattQC [20:47] MattQC: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-) [20:47] Muelli, never heard of it. What exactly is that? === BrokenXhalo is now known as Azoriath [20:47] Thanks Muelli [20:47] Roasted, i think thats gstreamer related [20:47] brontoeee: there's a nasty nvidia bug in 10.10, and this resolves it.. [20:48] Roasted: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=gst-inspect [20:48] |NX|, how do you connect [20:48] <|NX|> via wifi [20:48] can someone point me to a file splitter with a GUI [20:48] TomV-415, i know, i wasted two days with an older laptop, did not fix it [20:48] Muelli, really bro. really? [20:48] sorry, didn't read: iwconfig [20:48] I'm able to boot in to the kernel, but I get a "fatal error" error inserting crc32_Intel… no such device” message [20:48] no one knows? [20:48] ;( [20:48] Muelli, I thought you were telling me a linux command or something. smart ass. [20:48] !info gst-inspect [20:48] Package gst-inspect does not exist in maverick [20:49] Hey! === Calinou is now known as enjol-ras [20:49] thanks for your help anyway. I'll try elsewhere. === enjol-ras is now known as Calinou [20:49] And once inside the session, my battery monitor just estimates and estimates forever without displaying values. [20:49] I'm wondering why Ubuntu's Remote Desktop won't start automatically when i log in to the computer? [20:49] I need to go to preferences and open the remote desktop and then close it. [20:49] Using Ubuntu Server with gnome. [20:49] Latest. [20:49] TomV-415, it appears as if this fix is about downgrading, so why not remove jockey as well, or downgrade as well... ? [20:49] <|NX|> unes I could somehow set up a thumbdrive as a repository for the ubuntu-netbook debs [20:49] Does anybody here know if Totem supports MKV files natively? Im having some freezing issues with it that VLC does not exhibit (indicating the files are fine) === XLV_ is now known as XLV [20:50] Also, I'm trying to get some PowerTop suggestions to stick at startup [20:50] brontoeee: Here's the thread that seems promising, but the fixes are not approved, so I need to pull them from the 'proposed' repos.. [20:50] https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-96/+bug/626974 === a is now known as Guest71676 [20:51] 2 === zz_PhilMather is now known as PhilMather [20:51] brontoeee: see posts #137 and #161 [20:53] TomV-415, seems nasty [20:54] TomV-415, was your machine working fine with lucid? [20:54] Roasted, is there any reason why you need to uses totem? [20:55] brontoeee, well VLC performs poorly on my netbook. Movie Player performs nicely but with this mkv its a headache. Movie Player seems to only play AVIs nicely. Im trying MPlayer right now to see if thats a do-able solution. [20:55] brontoeee, from what I read VLC is a bit more CPU intensive than other players, which may be why it kind of... sucks... on my netbook. [20:55] brontoeee: yup, fine with 10.04, but upgrade broke it. [20:56] TomV-415, ok, good luck [20:56] I'm wondering why Ubuntu's Remote Desktop won't start automatically when i log in to the computer? [20:56] brontoeee, looks like mplayer does the same thing [20:56] IS there a video player for netbook hardware that doesnt suck? [20:57] Roasted, why is your graphics card? [20:57] Roasted: vlc? [20:57] what* [20:57] gobbe, read up for why I dont wnat to use VLC [20:57] brontoeee, intel of some sort. sec. [20:57] Intel 945GME [20:58] Roasted: hmmh, interesting. I'v been using netbook with 945G and vlc works fine [20:58] gobbe, are you on 10.10? [20:58] Roasted: but mplayer rocks, if you need gui then gnome-mplayer or else [20:58] Roasted: yep [20:58] gobbe, VLC player and MPlayer do the same thing. Movie Player works PERFECT except iwht MKVs. [20:58] Roasted, no vdpau for you then, my eee hapens to have gpu decoders, which some players can abuse, so i can have full-HD smootish playback of certain formats [20:58] Maybe SMPlayer + vdpau will work on intel graphics? [20:58] This netbook is sure a brat with ubuntu [20:59] DarkSkyGhost, vdpau is nvidia only i think [20:59] brontoeee, what do you suggest I do/use then? [21:00] Roasted, reencode your master videos to your laptop friendly format, lower res, lower bitrate, ec [21:00] brontoeee: then install win7 as secondary os and use coreavc + mpc [21:00] t* [21:01] brontoeee, I just wonder what it is that VLC sucks with AVI but Movie Player works fine with AVI... I just wonder what the difference is there. [21:01] 720p plays flawlessly on my 1000h. 1080p, however, does not. [21:01] DarkSkyGhost, Im pretty sure the rez Im using isnt even 720 [21:02] still have the booting problem... [21:02] :) [21:02] any who can help me? [21:02] Well, as far as I know, vlc uses free codecs, they might be not very good. [21:02] how can share files in two ubuntu machine [21:03] is there a way to install the battery and sound applet for gnome without using this "wrapper"-applet that comes with ubuntu? [21:03] DarkSkyGhost, every player on ubuntu uses free codecs [21:03] how i share my files in 2 ubuntu machine [21:03] Hmm, really? [21:03] Roasted, you can disable postprocessing, and such and see if that makes a difference [21:04] I thought restricted stuff has non-free codecs [21:04] brontoeee, is that done within the application itself or in ubuntu? [21:04] DarkSkyGhost, those are still OS apps [21:04] Roasted, in vlc i mean [21:04] Oh, okay. === guntbert_ is now known as guntbert [21:05] ciao [21:05] hello [21:05] brontoeee, do you know offhand where that feature is at to disable? [21:05] i [21:05] Roasted, let me check ... [21:06] 'm on gentoo, but i have problem with notify-osd which was designed for ubuntu, well, maybe i can ask for help here [21:06] Roasted, video > post processing [21:06] i just compiled latest stable version (and bzr code), but notification doesn't looks like in screenshots [21:06] And enabling "skip in-loop deblocking filter" should help, maybe? [21:06] DarkSkyGhost, yes, thats avc specific [21:07] i see rectangle without rounded corners, without shadows and with wrong margins... i have compiz enabled [21:07] santosh, I have transferred files between two machines via ssh and ftp using temporary dns given by whatsmyip [21:07] brontoeee, ha, already was disabled. Dangit. [21:07] I guess I should just accept that my netbook SUCKS with video playback in all regards. [21:08] I'm having trouble with my internet using ubuntu 10.10 I had it hooked up to a router at my sisters and it worked fine I got my own apartment hooked it straight up to the cable modem via broadcom ethernet card and it wouldnt get an ip or anything so I had to hook up usb which works but only at 5-7mbit when I have 15mbit so I installed another ethernet card plugged it in and it works but was only getting like 100kbit extremely slow I opened network tools and r [21:08] an a ping on google while i was running a bandwidth test and it took off to 20mbit stayed there for about 5 min then dropped off to 100kbit again so i clicked on eth1 restarted the connection started off slow again ran network tools ping took off stayed fast for 10min then dropped off to nothing anyone have any ideas why I cant get my internet to work correctly on usb or 2 ethernet cards [21:08] what the preferred library for 32bit compatability on a 64 bit install? ia32-libs or lib32stdc++6 ?? [21:08] well.. this doesn't look correct: http://wstaw.org/m/2011/01/23/2011-01-23-220633_1920x1080_scrot.png [21:09] I bet netbooks weren't designed to play HD videos... [21:10] DarkSkyGhost, not trying to play HD videos. THATS the problem. [21:10] ...darn. Sorry. [21:10] DarkSkyGhost, just trying to play a low res concert, and it sucks. Badly. [21:10] DarkSkyGhost, Roasted my netbook can play h.264 fullHD videos, but i took every step at buying time, since video is my proffesion ... [21:10] Its just irritating because VLC works great if its not an AVI. But Movie Player only works with AVI without skipping.... [21:10] O_O fullHD, cool. [21:10] brontoeee, my netbook was given to me for free.... :P [21:10] brontoeee, so Im just trying to make work with what I got [21:10] Roasted, ok then :) [21:11] I know I must be missing something really simple, but I can't get my wireless up. It's rtl8081 and I've already been down the wireless troubleshoot guide page. The driver seems to be present, but it just won't scan channels. I know what my network settings are, so I tried to specify all the parameters, but still nothing. [21:11] brontoeee, I just wish I could play concerts in the garage when Im working out, but its stupid to have 1 player per video format type. === canon is now known as Acid190 [21:11] Movie player for AVI, VLC for MKV, etc. [21:11] I'm wondering why Ubuntu's Remote Desktop won't start automatically when i log in to the computer? [21:11] There is any way to disable metacity focus stealing prevention? [21:11] Roasted, how about smplayer (a gui for mplayer)? [21:12] smplayer? hm let me check [21:12] Median, is it turned on in "startup applications"? [21:12] . [21:12] brontoeee, I just have to wonder whats up with VLC to do this. Is it because VLC is more processor intensive and the atom can't handle it, or what? [21:13] brontoeee, with how many people own netbooks I just find it hard to believe the hardware would be overlooked and lacking support. [21:13] Roasted, i dont have that behaviour, avi plays fine with vlc here [21:13] DarkSkyGhost: Hm. Will check tomorrow. [21:13] Thanks. [21:13] brontoeee, and youre on 10.10 desktop edition with a regular 1.6 atom? [21:13] Is it usually turned on there DarkSkyGhost? [21:14] yes Roasted [21:14] Nooo idea. Don't remember how it was in the beginning. [21:14] Ok. [21:15] RTL8180L 802.11b not scanning and not associating with unsecured wireless network. Any suggestions (already tried the troubleshooting guide) [21:16] Roasted, do you have avifile-vorbis-plugin installed? [21:16] Roasted, tried defaulting vlc setting? [21:16] settings* [21:16] DarkSkyGhost, default? I never changed anything to begin with. [21:16] bucky, let me check [21:17] bucky, no I dont. what relevance does that file have? [21:17] bucky, I also dont have it installed on my desktop that worked fine. [21:17] Roasted, look at the description of it in Synaptic [21:18] can anyone help me set up an SSH server in ubuntu desktop? i've done most of it but i stilll can't connect from a different local computer. [21:18] Red-Raven: you can connect from localhost? [21:19] on the server machine yes. [21:20] Red-Raven, port 22 must be linked to server [21:21] !who | Red-Raven [21:21] Red-Raven: 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 :) [21:21] Red-Raven, port forwarding in your router/modem/switch [21:21] bucky, oddly, after installing this file, I have yet to hear an audio skip in VLC with an AVI file. What the? Whats that little package do? I mean I dont have it on my desktop, so it must do something for lower performing machines. [21:21] Roasted, did you look at the description of it in Synaptic [21:21] bucky, yes, I did. [21:21] Red-Raven: is there a firewall enabled on the server? [21:21] which is why I still asked you.... [21:21] bucky, yes i have port forwarded port 22 [21:22] Red-Raven, you on the same sub net [21:22] GAH [21:22] nevermind. just skipped. [21:22] package did nothing :( [21:22] bucky, i haven't put one on it. === gigi is now known as Guest7268 [21:22] hello everyone === Guest7268 is now known as giggino [21:23] bucky, what do yo mean about the sub net? [21:23] hi all - potentially stupid question... if ssh is started by upstart, why is there an init.d script for it? this of course applies to many other services [21:23] pookey: did you try reading it :) [21:23] bucky, if you meant are the two PCs on the same rueter then yes. [21:24] jrib: the init.d script? [21:24] Red-Raven, can u ping the other machine? [21:24] ping ? [21:25] pookey: yeah, read the gdm one for example [21:25] Red-Raven, yes [21:25] jrib: I opened it and searched for 'upstart' asusming there would be a comment if it was checking to see if upsart had already done something... I'll read it all the way though though :) [21:25] I'm giving up on 10.10, since I can't seem to get the graphics to work for my nvidia Geforce4... What's a simple way to roll back to 10.04? Just backup my /home dir? [21:25] jrib: gdm is a symlink, ssh isn't [21:25] can someone tell me if in their system /lib/modules/2.6.35-24-generic-pae/kernel/sound/modules/ snd-hda-intel.ko is a symlink and to what please [21:25] bucky, yes. [21:26] hello? [21:26] tomV-415: I have a GeForce4 me too and i gived up on 10.10 before. [21:26] configure: error: cannot find OpenSSL or Libgcrypt, what is this can anyone help me' [21:26] pookey: it probably should be [21:26] !info OpenSSL [21:26] Package OpenSSL does not exist in maverick [21:26] lol [21:26] Lucase: quite a waste of time, huh? [21:26] !info Libgcrypt [21:27] Package Libgcrypt does not exist in maverick [21:27] :) [21:27] pookey: that I know of, it serves no purpose [21:27] i alredy insalled openssl pack [21:27] [Lucase] [21:27] jrib: it seems a little odd, because /etc/defaults/ssh still exists, and gives the impression you could use it, but if ssh is started via upstart, that's not the case [21:27] TomV-415: that's why I always use LTS versions [21:28] jrib: well, then... it's existance I'd really consider a bug - it's just confusing if it's not needed... .do you agree? at least.. .I'm confused ;) [21:28] Lucase: Yeah, I followed the suggested workarounds here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-96/+bug/626974 but even after installing the fixes, it was not any better.. Always had to launch via recovery mode, and low grphics.. to get in. [21:28] * jrib nods at pookey. It should just be a symlink to upstart-job like gdm I think. Let's check the tracker... [21:28] TomV: well yeah if you back up on yout homed dir you downgrade then its okay. [21:28] ive got a problem with flash playing stuttery sometimes, ubuntu 10.10 on a new laptop, got ubuntu-restricted-extras installed. what could it be, how to get it to flow better? [21:28] I have a sierra wireless usb modem for gsm connections. It used to work ok, but the upgrade to 10.10 seems to have broken something. Seems to be looking for it on the wrong usb port among other things. Its actually on usb0 [21:28] jrib: I'll look too :) [21:29] selecting it in network-manager yields simply gsm network disconnected [21:29] c3l: How did you install flash [21:29] Red-Raven, what error do you get when : ssh user@ip is launced? [21:29] c3l: are you talking about FlashPlayer Plugin ? [21:30] jrib: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/upstart nothing mentioned...

[21:31] RTL8180L 802.11b not scanning and not associating with unsecured wireless network. Any suggestions. [21:32] hi [21:32] pookey: all I could get out of the comments is that the upstart maintainer requested the change not be made (#4), but I don't know why [21:32] jrib: hm.. odd === user____ is now known as Induane [21:32] pookey: or maybe I misread. Maybe the maintainer only asked that /etc/default/ not be used and instead configuration happens directly in the upstart script. That probably makes more sense but provides little insight as to why the sysv init script remains [21:32] jrib: without meaning to knock ho wthings are done, and I know it's open source and etc. etc... but it seems odd that upstart has been partly introduced for so long.... and it's still in a start of confusion [21:33] when I try a direct ppp connection it uses usbtty0 anyways. network-manager seems to be using the wrong device? [21:33] Can anyone tell me what ID my mouse is from the xinput list? (http://pastebin.com/L9cVXVLL) [21:33] jrib: at least my question wasnt' as stupid as I suspected it might be ;) [21:33] also Ktorrent or Deluge? [21:34] nofrillz: I use Ktorrent [21:34] have you tried Deluge? [21:34] <_AV_> Hi, people this is an emergency. I need to encrypt some data in my Memory Stick. May you recommend me some application to do it? [21:34] deluge is lovely :) [21:34] pookey: this comment gives some reasons: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openssh/+bug/634388 [21:34] _AV_, truecrypt [21:34] does using the purge arguement clean out a preference file? [21:34] nofrillz: No sorry about that. but I think KTorrent is working great [21:34] _AV_: you could do it with an encryped mount point... [21:35] Lucase: outside of your HOME, yeah [21:35] lilith: outside of your HOME, yeah [21:35] deluge is java app? [21:35] brontoeee: no [21:35] jrib: thanks, I'll add myelf as a watcher to both [21:36] <_AV_> It is a PSP Memory Stick, and I need to protect it with a password. [21:36] pookey: now I do see comment #10 by Colin references the need for the script for chroots [21:36] jrib: Outside of my home ? [21:36] Lucase: wrong nick, sorry [21:36] jrib: So first I should probably check to see if there one under HOME. Thanks [21:36] _AV_, In ubuntu can't you just right click the file and choose encrypt? [21:37] rww, and web gui is working as it should? [21:37] I'm trying to get a Wacom Bamboo CTH-460 to work on 10.04, I have tried the wacom-dkms and manually building the module but can't get it to work, can someone provide some suggestions? [21:37] edbian: you need the seahorse-plugins package for that. I don't think it's included by default any more. [21:37] brontoeee: no idea, I haven't used it [21:37] bmease: Have you tried to run the cd ? === the_student__ is now known as the_student [21:37] <_AV_> edbian: I don't hve that option. === vadrygar is now known as Vadrygar [21:37] looks like Deluge it is [21:38] jrib: yeah, interesting stuffs [21:38] pookey: aptitude changelog ssh also gives a reason (search for "Convert to Upstart" [21:38] Lucase, the cd contains a linux installer? [21:38] _AV_ why such a dire need to encrypt the memory stick? [21:38] bmease: Tha is a driver problem, there should be a driver for download in a linux file on their site. [21:38] pookey: but in general, they look like gdm :) [21:38] jrib: the latest change/update to ssh is what made me start looking [21:38] Hi! I need help! I'm trying to install my webcam, and it seems I'm missing a file called "linux/config.h" when I'm trying to compile [21:38] Musi [21:38] Lucase, thank you, I'll take a look [21:38] isntall the headers for your kernel [21:38] install* [21:38] nofrillz: it seems that i already did [21:39] musigreg: That is a driver problem. go onto the site of your webcam and search for a linux package with the driver inside [21:39] nofrillz: told me that i had the last version of it [21:39] jrib: hopefully I'll hide this detail from the debian fanboys at work, I'm trying to convince that we should move to ubuntu by default ;) [21:39] Lucase: There isn't any, I ve been looking for days [21:39] _AV_, I'm looking it up [21:39] <_AV_> Truecrypt is gonna work with other platforms and devices? [21:39] yep [21:39] Lucase: shouldnt flasplayer be in ubuntu restricted extras [21:39] Musigreg: Did you try to run the install cd that comes with your webcam ? [21:40] _AV_, This looks pretty helpful: http://www.randombugs.com/linux/encrypting-decrypting-files-ubuntu.html [21:40] <_AV_> Thanks. [21:40] Lucase: No, i don't have it anymore [21:40] pookey: I think debian is moving to upstart too [21:40] nope [21:40] c3l: I don't think so. [21:40] it's in the repositories, but I haven't heard of them planning to use it by default [21:40] Musigreg: what is the builder of the webcam you have there ? [21:40] jrib: I suspect that when they do, they will either do it, or not, rather than half do it, but with a release cycle as slow as thiers... [21:41] Lucase: It's a Logitech Quickcam Sphere [21:41] Lucase: well flash does play. what should i install then? [21:41] can someone help me partition my linux hdd? [21:41] rww: http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2009/09/msg00003.html guess it never ended up happening in squeeze :) [21:42] c3l: then what is your problem ?

[22:08] Jon30: i would say though, stay away from brands/models that include a lot of windows media dedicated keys, 1. they may not work from the start 2. its a hassle to map them all [22:08] Maybe it is a security that ejects the cd and then the very last touched of the install are not completed [22:08] i just downloaded ubuntu 10.10 and i am trying to get some themes when i copy stuff off the net to terminal it installs but nothing opens [22:08] Jon30, pick a model, then check internals and how they are supported in ubuntu, wifi, gpu, audio [22:09] I installed linux mint on another compter of mine and I got the text but it shutdown and rebooted without all the errors [22:09] PsPhaker: it could be a number of things, without any error messages it is hard to tell.

[23:33] CJack, I've ran out of ideas, but I bet the problem are you graphics drivers [23:34] is there any way to reinstall them? [23:34] CJack: sudo apt-get install mesa-utils [23:34] CJack: then paste your "glxinfo" command output somewhere [23:34] are there any boot time changes required to be carried out just after using gparted?

[23:36] nimrod10: there're some useful utils that would help to troubleshoot [23:36] danst_, I see [23:36] try use fedora live dvd, it helps me [23:36] can I in some way install a package, and let the install process/the program being installed treat the environment as all configs related to that programs are non-existing, and overwrite them? [23:36] or red hat live dvd [23:36] botcity: I wouldn't do that! [23:36] botcity: if I was him [23:37] vmware workstation asks for location of kernel-headers. headers for current kernel are in place. seems im missing a package. [23:37] LuciferDarkWatch: boot your livecd [23:37] pointers? [23:37] c3l, there must be a way in apt-get , maybe a --force switch [23:37] danst_ livecd booted up and running [23:37] LuciferDarkWatch: then open terminal and do "sudo fdisk -l", then paste that somewhere [23:38] Can anyone help me, I uninstalled my network-manager-gnome, how do I connect to the internet another way? [23:38] LuciferDarkWatch: it will show your disks, partitions, etc., so I can determine which one should we mount to fix your grub configuration file [23:38] uninst_acc: wired/wireless? [23:38] uninst_acc, use cable , use wicd .... [23:38] uninst_acc: install wicd? [23:38] I can't I can't open a conenction [23:38] I just need to open a conenction [23:39] , [sudo apt-get install nvidia-current] this helped me :) now drivers works well :) [23:39] uninst_acc: look at ifup and ifdown, and iwconfig [23:39] uninst_acc: could you describe the type of connection you use [23:39] sweet CJack , I thought that yuo might be missing the drivers :) [23:39] I have a wired connection, but it's not connected to anything right now [23:40] uninst_acc, in a root command line type dhclient eth0 [23:40] uninst_acc: if you get ip automatically, plug in your ethernet cable, list /sbin/ifconfig for interfaces and do "sudo dhclient interface" [23:40] Okay, thanks [23:41] I have another question, I have a hardware wireless switch, but for some reason it stopped working, it works fine in Win7, so it's not broken, but it doesn't work in Ubuntu [23:41] DexterF: which version? I just downloaded latest version of vmplayer with no problems [23:41] splnet: workstation, nit player [23:41] not [23:41] uninst_acc: how do you test it? [23:41] splnet: ah, need patching for .32, nvm [23:41] I boot into Win7 and it toggles the wireless functionality properly [23:42] uninst_acc: oh, I mean how do you know that nothing happens when you switch on/off in ubuntu [23:42] uninst_acc: try douing sudo iwlist scan [23:42] danst_ here are results Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 * 262 2873 20972544 83 Linux /dev/sda2 2873 15927 104856255 83 Linux /dev/sda3 15927 28982 104856576 7 HPFS/NTFS /dev/sda4 28982 30402 11408384 82 Linux swap / Solaris [23:42] uninst_acc: with switch turned on [23:43] Well, when I had the network-manager applet, when I pressed the button, the LED stayed red and the network-manager applet said that wireless is disabled by a hardware switch [23:43] No, the switch is off by default and I can't turn it on [23:43] LuciferDarkWatch: sudo mkdir /mnt/test1 [23:43] LuciferDarkWatch: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/test1 [23:44] LuciferDarkWatch: ls /mnt/test1 and tell me if that your root linux partition (I suppose that /boot is on your root partition) [23:45] uninst_acc: oh why don't you try doing iwlist scan [23:46] danst_: What does iwlist scan do? [23:46] uninst_acc: type "sudo iwconfig", there should be your wireless adapter, so after that you could type "sudo ifconfig interfacename up" where interfacename is something like wlan0, ath0, etc, depending on iwconfig output [23:47] danst_ Yes it appears to be root [23:47] uninst_acc: makes your adapter search for access points [23:47] uninst_acc: it should list them if everything works fine [23:47] danst_; okay, i'll boot into ubuntu and try those things [23:47] how can i make my ntfs partition's binaries executable? the partition was mounted automatically so i'm not sure where those settings are [23:47] uninst_acc: oh wait [23:48] Yes? [23:48] uninst_acc: if there will be any errors on ifconfig interface up, type "dmesg" and paste somewhere lines that are related to your wireless adapter [23:48] Okay [23:48] if there would be any [23:49] LuciferDarkWatch: sudo nano /mnt/test1/boot/grub/grub.cfg I suppose [23:49] hello all, does anyone know how to get an external usb floppy drive working? I'm running 10.10.. [23:49] LuciferDarkWatch: oh [23:49] LuciferDarkWatch: better gksudo gedit /mnt/test1/boot/grub/grub.cfg [23:50] brokenpeace: what does lsusb says when you plug it in?

On THREE of my Ubuntu computers after the last update I began seeing sometimes when I log in, the theme isn't there. Sure, I can log out/back in, but I find it strange it's on all 3 systems I have. [23:51] oh, you'd better paste it somewhere next time [23:52] Roasted: Your theme doesn't load properly? or not at all? [23:52] like one line at a time [23:52] does anyone know how i can make my ntfs partition's binaries executable? the partition was mounted automatically so i'm not sure where those settings are (10.10) [23:52] not at all h-dee. It comes back to some default VERY VERY plain theme. [23:52] brokenpeace: what does ls -l /dev/fd* say? [23:52] danst_ do i just reboot now? [23:53] Roasted: You must be using either nvidia graphics card or high speed processors or both...right? [23:53] danst - you did see the full list or did it block it? [23:53] LuciferDarkWatch: have you finished editing? [23:53] LuciferDarkWatch: and you're sure that everything is alright with your config, yeah? [23:53] Yes i changed it back to 0 [23:53] brokenpeace: I saw the whole [23:54] My computer is stuck on Grub Rescue. Can somebody help me? RIght now I'm booting off the Ubuntu live CD [23:54] LuciferDarkWatch: then save and reboot [23:54] h-dee, Nope. Netbook 1.6ghz Atom w/ Intel graphics, Laptop with Core 2 Duo w/ Intel graphics, and quad core desktop with Nvidia graphics. [23:54] h-dee, pretty much as opposite as you can get, if you ask me :P [23:54] brokenpeace: some guy on the internet says that everything works fine, but at his computor it shows up as /dev/sda [23:55] brokenpeace: do "sudo fdisk -l" and paste somewhere or PM me [23:55] Roasted: Lol! I heard about the same problem on many high speed processor based computers with GPUs. Anyways, please try killing 'gnome-settings-daemon' from your System Montior, and reload it [23:55] is there anyone here that could give me a hand setting up deluged please [23:55] I'm using Ubuntu 10.10.. But, I went to install RigsOfRods -- A car simulator. And used the 9.10 installer. It worked. But i'm getting an ogre error. [23:55] It's not seeming to find libOgremain.so [23:55] typically floopys show up as /dev/fd* [23:56] And doing locate libOgre does nothing. [23:56] heh floppys [23:56] virtus, you'll need to probably make a backport on your own [23:56] abstrakt: Hmm? [23:56] virtus, or just compile from source if no one has made a backport for you yet [23:56] Roasted: I had similar trouble when I was booting multiple machines from one network fs root and there was a some kind of mess with gdm pid files I suppose [23:56] hi, i need help again, i installed graphic drivers, is said that i should reboot the system, i did, and now i cant get to desktop, i see the louding "Ubuntu 10.10" and then its askes me to log in, username and password, i enter and stay there, i mean there is no desktop its like terminal or something like that, like server edition. could you please tell me what to do? thank you. [23:56] abstrakt: What's a backport? [23:57] Sorry, i'm used to Arch/Gentoo here. I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my laptop for school. [23:57] virtus, ahh, that's half your problem :P ... just kidding [23:57] oh, gentoo? [23:57] > > Still stuck in Arch for my Desktops. [23:57] Yea. [23:57] sorry *there's* your problem :) [23:57] arch is good [23:57] abstrakt: Don't diss Gentoo. It's awesome. [23:57] dunno so much about gentoo tho [23:57] danst_ Thanks its booting Ubuntu as default. keyboard still not working have to look into that now but thanks a lot danst_ ++Rep++ [23:57] And Arch is amazing. [23:57] I just did [23:57] anyway [23:57] Hi, is there a channel for ubuntu on ARM ? Which one is it ? [23:57] abstrakt: Anyway, compile ogre from source? [23:57] hey guys, i accidently removed my wireless connection icon from the taskbar..how do i get it back there? i tried Add To Panel..but i cant find it there. [23:57] LuciferDarkWatch: you're welcome [23:58] virtus, uhh, well compile the thingie you want ogre for, the car game, compile that from source [23:58] Craig: indicator applet from 'add to panel' [23:58] anyone please? [23:58] abstrakt: I can't seem to locate the libogre files at *all* [23:58] My computer is stuck on Grub Rescue. Can somebody help me? RIght now I'm booting off the Ubuntu live CD [23:58] doing locate libogre [23:58] #ubuntu=arm [23:59] h-dee: that's a mail icon? [23:59] virtus, then I'd probably suggest compiling from source [23:59] abstrakt: Ogre you mean, yes? [23:59] virtus, yes compile ogre from source [23:59] virtus, or possibly try to apt-get install ogre-dev if there is such a package
