joeoshawaa command line irc chat client should be included in ubuntu just incase x11 messes up on people00:08
sacarlsondascapital__: no that fine,  I would try another version of ubuntu maybe older or the 11.04 version00:09
KM0201sacarlson: thats already an old kernel, why wouldh e want to go older?.00:09
m2mgdascapital_: open a terminal and type lspci to see if you have a wired or wireless card in your computer00:09
KM0201dascapital__: does it show your wireless device? if so, what is it00:10
dascapital__Atheros Communications AR81451 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet00:10
sacarlsonKM0201: dascapital__ ;  true newer might be better and I see history in 2.6.32-22-generic as bad already so I guess  newer,00:10
dascapital__no wireless device shows up00:10
mungeshcan someone help me out with privoxy?.....can get it to install and run on default ip:port, but after changing to lan netmask and different port, privoxy cannot bind to ip (permission denied)00:11

joeoshawaby his ifconfig00:16
joeoshawai think its probably a router problem00:16
sacarlsondascapital__: so since they have had it working at this time I would think a newer kernel should work00:16
KM0201dascapital__: were you the one that could go to some websites, but couldn't go to others?00:17

joeoshawaafter checking md500:24
Sqeazeranyone? How to get file content to a variable in bash?00:24
KM0201dascapital__: wubi is what you used to install ubuntu inside Windows.00:24
mr_shedI'm looking to install an Open Source CMS, specifically Drupal, but before I do I wanted to be clear on whether or not it would affect my existing LAMP setup (as it obviously will be serving as a local webserver)?00:24
KM0201dascapital__: first things first, uninstall wubi... please make sure you do that.. cuz if you try to install ubuntu on top of wubi, you're in for a mess00:25
jodie_Sqeazer__: SOMETHIING=`cat <filename>`00:25
Sqeazerjodie_: does not work00:25
SqeazerSOMETHING would then be cat file.txt00:25
mr_shedalso, are there any good channels to go seak info on Django, Ruby on Rails, PHP Frameworks etc... I'm a complete stranger to Frameworks and CMSes, but I know my way around php/mysql00:25

sacarlsonKM0201: dascapital__ or could wubi that be the problem? In my ralink I had problems when I booted windows and then rebooted to run ubuntu my wifi adapter wouldn't work since the nv rom in the device was loaded from windows,  if I unpluged the device or powered off my system it would work if ubuntu was first to boot00:26
Sqeazerbitter: it takes some time, just leave it run00:27
KM0201dascapital__: now are you listening?00:27
jhansonxiSqeazer, the backticked command that jodie posted should work.  Alternative form is variable=$(cat filename)00:27

Vooloosince installing new kernels my network card stops working randomly for 5-10 seconds, what can I do?00:27

m2mgDescriptioned: wine is free cedega is not  wine will tell u if it work with your version just search for the name of the game and i thin mw2 is in there00:28
sacarlsondascapital__: it might be a waist of time but you might try burn a cd of ubuntu and see if it works or try boot from a usb flash disk00:28
biiterSqeazer: ok00:28
PiciSqeazer: You may want to ask in #bash if we're confusing you here :)00:28

chovynzsacarlson: Now, I have a question RE: crontab. Why is it trying to save the crontab file to /tmp/crontab.jLcQyb/crontab? (I'm logged in remotely)02:59
ZykoticK9gunndawg, your echo command says to append that output to a file called nslookup - doubt that's what you want.02:59
k-milogarsUbuntu I do not read the cd / dvd02:59
sacarlsonchovynz: I think it first tests the file syntax then if it's ok it puts the crontab into action02:59
gunndawgZykotick9 doh! guess I need to learn shell syntax better, lol02:59
gunndawgzykotick9, any way to do what I am trying to do then ?03:00
rumpe1gunndawg, use "read"03:00
chovynzsacarlson: will that crontab exists after I reboot? Guess it's a good time to try it :)03:00
gunndawgrumpel, example please03:00
ZykoticK9gunndawg, perhaps "echo "Please enter a URL" && nslookup" would work (untested)03:00
ownerAnybody can help with a messed up xorg for an AMD with ATI x1200 graphics card?03:00
sacarlsonchovynz: if you used crontab -e to edit it and it checks ok at save then yet it is saved,  will it run is another story03:01
coz_owner,   did you try the #radeon  channel :)03:01
yeatsjastiv: what is "libre-fshoppe1"? do you know?  and what was apt/dpkg doing when it was interrupted?03:01
ownercoz_ : yes, they recommended I come here03:01
coz_owner,  oh  :)03:02
gunndawgrumpel, any suggestion ?03:02
sacarlsonchovynz: you sure the problem didn't already auto start at boot?  you should have checked /etc/init.d to see if any media*  existed already03:02
jastivI think I broke it then did not realise it was broke till I tried to install something else03:02
jastivSo I'm not sure what did it exactly03:03
ZykoticK9gunndawg, i just tried it, i believe it's what you're looking for: echo "Please enter a URL" && nslookup03:03
sacarlsonchovynz: sorry not problem program03:03

chovynzsacarlson: Yesterday I got mediatomb running manually. Today I acciendtly shut off the server and media tomb was not active. So I figure that it would be best to make it run auto, incase teh server ever needs to reboot03:03
gunndawgzykotick9 but it puts the users input on a 2nd line,03:03
biiterwtf.. module loop not found...03:03
yeatsjastiv: you can probably do 'tail /var/log/dpkg.log' to see what the last few packages were03:04
sacarlsonchovynz: ok03:04
ownerI guess ubuntu is not ready for some laptops03:04
ZykoticK9gunndawg, ya, i think you'd need to re-write nslookup if you wanted something different.  Best of luck man.03:04
ownerSo much for "switch to Linux, it's better than Windows"03:04
gunndawgZykotick9 I dont think you fully understand what I am after, but thanks for the help!03:04
chovynzhaha. it didn't run03:04
ZykoticK9owner, "switch to linux, it's better... so long as you don't have ATI" more like it ;)03:05
sacarlsonchovynz: bummer03:05
sacarlsonchovynz: and you can run it with the same command line you put in crontab?03:06
chovynzMmm. I'm out of time. I'll have to come back to this at a later stage. Thanks for your help sacarlson ZykoticK9 bazhang03:06
ZykoticK9sacarlson, just want to point out that just because a script/command runs successfully from command line does NOT guarantee it will run successfully from crontab - BUT if it doesn't run from command line it won't run from crontab :)03:07
sacarlsonchovynz: it could be it tries to do something to soon at boot or something totaly different,  might need to make a script that adds a sleep 30  or some time for system to be stable,  yes true ZykoticK903:09

SnakkahHi. My wireless connection is working fine, but my wired connection is not. "eth0" isn't even listed when I type ifconfig into the Terminal. Why did this happen and how do I get it to detect wired connections again?03:52
slestakdanub: not really on boot, seems to just be gdm03:52
danubPemalites: i dont have an ipod to connect so im just gonna rough it here, but in the disk utility, in the bottom section under volumes, how many are there for that ipod?03:52
DaGeek247Snakkah make a new eth0 connection.03:53
danubslestak: but when you log in it is fine? just the splash screen is messed up?03:53
ZykoticK9cryptodira, are there any sound options in vlc or totem that allow you to select 2 channel?03:53
slestakdanub: thinking about modifying the upstart rule to make gdm not start to get to a console?03:53
slestakafter logging in, there is nothing wrong at all03:53
slestakthis is a dell mini9 with intel video chipset03:54
Balmunganyone know a guide to my problem above?03:54
slestaki have been using this machine for prob 1.5 to 2 years (since they came out)03:54
slestakwith ubuntu03:54
DaGeek247Balmung how important is wi dows to you?03:54
danubslestak: gdm doesn't have to start to get a console, you can just hit ctrl+f1. not sure why it would just all of a sudden mess up the splash screen and then apply the correct settings after loading03:54
Pemalitesmmm under  host adaptor theres the hard disk and cd drive :/ and then under peripheral devices theres just the ipod03:54
Pemalitesi think that was the correct thing to say?03:55
BalmungI need it , I am currently booted on a live ubuntu cd backing up my files.03:55
Balmungbecause windows will not run03:55
cryptodiraZykoticK9,  not in totem... vlc shows me the other audio channels... (other languages, commentary) but nothing else.03:55
slestakdanub: i know.  i have been around linux for years, and this is a strange one.  checking logs and dont see anything really pertinenent03:55
Pemalitesunless you meanth space.... in the ipod which is listed as 30gb03:55
DaGeek247Balmung k. whats problm with windows?03:56
slestakthis is my daughers machine now, and she did fill up the ssd not long ago.  I have since cleared space, but i wonder id sth got corrupted03:56

ZykoticK9cryptodira, sorry i don't have any other suggestions, good luck man.03:56
SnakkahDaGeek247, did that. The Network Manager just won't detect wired connections at all.03:56
SnakkahI'm on a laptop by the way.03:56
=== Guest83802 is now known as mtt
danubslestak: its possible. maybe there was a gdm update that got cutoff because the disk was full?03:56
cryptodiraZykoticK9, np, was a long shot... these intemittent situations are sometimes tricky... Thanks.03:56
philip_Snakkah does it matter? Wireless is working fine isn't it?03:56
danubPemalites: on the left, you have your storage devices, click on the ipod, then the right side will populate with data03:57
cryptodiradanub, thanks for your suggestions.03:57
BalmungDaGeek247 well I think i corrupted it honestly so I am getting my flies off and sending a nuke to it.  After which I WILL install windows 7 and Ubuntu of which I want to be prompted which i want to use when I start up my laptop03:57
DaGeek247Snakkah what do you mean wont detect?03:57
slestakanohter note is when i boot to a live usb, it does not show the problem, so it is def the package on that install03:57
danubslestak: you can try to do the dpkg --reconfigure thing and see if that fixes it?03:57
slestaki dont think the install would let me do a --purge on gdm, it would prob nork everything03:57
slestaklet me try to log in, its being a little tempermental03:58
BalmungDaGeek247 My problem is .. all the "tutorials" are like way confusing or non updated (which most arent and makes them confusing)03:58
philip_Snakkah does it matter if wireless is working?03:58
DaGeek247Balmung by default, if you install windows then ubuntu, you will be given a choice which one to boot.03:58
danubPemalites: once it populates with data, you will see volumes in the right section, about halfway down. clicking on different sections will tell you the volume03:58
aprilharehello. can you tell me what package is responsible for the display of the ubuntu logo on startup?03:59
danubPemalites: so if there are 2 partitions and your drive is /dev/sdc, you will have sdc1 and sdc203:59
DaGeek247Balmung if you just want to explore ubuntu, try using vmare or soething.03:59
ZykoticK9aprilhare, Plymouth03:59
danubPemalites: see which has the music on it, and go with that partition03:59
BalmungDaGeek247 well thats good to know but my problem is The hp laptop i have apparently used all the "primary partitions" it could so I had to delete one of them (which was named HP tools , which was useless) and  it still wouldn't let me install ubuntu ... so Yeah.. I need a hp windows 7 tutorial03:59
BalmungNeed it for a class so i have to have it03:59
aprilhareZykoticK9, ty i'll try reinstalling that. it's not working and looks messy and tacky03:59

devkorcvincewhy is compiz always a bug on hp machines? it will freeze from time to time04:05
danubBalmung: windows 7 is different then xp, it uses a completely different boot loader. i ran into issues trying to install linux over it. you might need to just pop in your win 7 disk, restore the boot sector and then you should be able to access windows04:05

slestakdanub: yes04:07
nexesDaGeek247: You can actually just apt-get install gparted onto the Ubuntu live CD if you have network. It's convenient if you already have that disc handy. :)04:07

danublol slestak04:08
DaGeek247Balmung yes04:08
danubso you cant access her laptop at all? or you have atleast 1 terminal you can use there?04:08
slestaki thought Esc during boot would bring up the grub menu04:08
slestakbut that is not workign either04:08
slestakif i could get into busybox maybe i could fix sth04:09
DaGeek247you need the 100+mb dowloaded iso of gparted04:09
rwwslestak: shift, not esc04:09
slestaki have no terminal there04:09
slestaklet me try that04:09
BalmungDaGeek247 OK ill look up on doing that.     Danub: Hp was kind of a douche and didnt include a cd with my computer so i will have to make one i think xD.04:09
philip_How come my download speed under ubuntu is faster than my DOwnload speed in Windows?04:09
danubyou may have to drop into single user04:09
danubthen it wont load gdm or anything like that, you just get the console04:09
slestaki changed the gdm setup to not present list of users, and the "hard press" keybard issue in gdm messes up loggin in04:10

Sharpclawwhat not waht. LOL!04:14
slestakdanub: hey, got an idea04:15
SkaagSharpclaw: program to run windows applications under emulation04:15
philip_Wine makes it so that it's sortof possible to open Windows programs in Linux.04:15
DaGeek247Sharclaw it runs windows exes04:15
nexesZykoticK9: I have Chromium installed, although it's not my main browser. I just wasn't aware that Chrome itself was available.04:15
slestaki have the bysigi themes installed04:15
richthegeekSkaag: WINE = WINE Is Not an Emulator04:15
slestakthat may be screwing things up04:15
SkaagRichie_: right, so when it creates all those windows folders, and wraps some linux API's with Windows API's, that is not emulation? :-)04:15
SkaagI don't care how they call it...04:15
danubslestak: that is possible04:15
nexesSkaag: It's a Win32 API for Unix. :)04:16
richthegeekSkaag: it's not emulation. Emulation is a specific method of "faking" a system04:16
philip_How is it possible that Ubuntu 10.10 is faster on my computer than Windows XP?04:16
Pemalitesi keep getting disconnected, my ipod manager question is the last one for tonight04:16
DaGeek247i have like 4 differnt browsers04:16
Skaagrichthegeek: it fakes windows for those apps04:16
richthegeekSkaag: read "specific method"04:16
Skaagrichthegeek: it even asks you, which windows version you want to fake for the apps04:16
richthegeekSkaag: a method which WINE does not use because of it's inherent problems04:16

bonjoyeeJoseeAntonioR: any specific protocol?04:26
danubmbvpixies78: just set firewall rules. if you have a home network though, you probably have a router and if its a newer one (like in the last, 4 years) it has NAT04:26
wandersickmbvpixies78: some companies implement proxy to be the only way to access the internet, i.e. the client cannot access internet thru other means.04:26

JoseeAntonioRbonjoyee: If you refer to MSN, Yahoo, GMail, etc., yes. In MSN.04:27
danubmbvpixies78: so unless you have a certain system that is acting as the dmz, you shouldn't have to worry. the connections into your lan have to be initiated from inside your network04:27

danubmbvpixies78: NAT = Network Address Translation. basically, all trafic comes into the router and it decides where to send the info. generally, only traffic that is let in is traffic that originated from inside your network04:28

slestakdanub: dpkg-reconfigure gdm doesnt appear to do anything04:30
philip_Sudo it.04:30
danubmbvpixies78: if you dont have a dmz setup, all i can scan is your router which wont provide much in the way of accessing your network04:30

DaGeek247games list?04:31
danubmbvpixies78: there are exceptions, if load-balancers are attached, if you have a cisco router with advanced routing configurations, etc. but your on a home network so those things dont apply04:31

joeoshawai was just looking at imwheel to adjust wheel sensitivity is that possible in 10.10?04:39

gunndawgis the 64bit version of 10.10 worth using ? I opted for the 32bit version because it was reccomended04:40
mbvpixies78danub:  awesome, downloading, thx04:40
lithpri usually use 64bit, i have had very few problems.04:40
gunndawghmm I dunno if i should be using 32 or 64, lol04:41
gunndawgnow im in a predicament04:41
RedWraithmarkoso: graphically you can do it with the system monitor.04:41
danubmbvpixies78: lol once you use nessus to see what exploits and things are broke, you *could* go as far as getting metasploit installed and actually cracking your system to help you understand what actually happened and how parts fit together, if you were so inclined04:41
markosoty red04:41
lithprgunndawg,  the real issue is: do you want to address more than 3.2 gigs of ram.04:41
RedWraithmarkoso: in the terminal you can do it with the command ps -e to list all processes and kill <process_number> to kill it.04:41
joeoshawagunndawg if you have a dual core or use 4 gig ram or more yes 64 bit is worth using04:41
lithprif not, go with 32 bit04:41
danublithpr: depends, do you have more then 3.2 installed? if yes, then probably04:42
markosoawesome thanks RedWraith04:42
RedWraithyou're welcom.04:42

piper69sacarlson: it is .10.3305:40
bc81piercedwater: oh, try testing out the loading of a DVD/video_ts folder05:40
sacarlsonpiper69: it will have to be within the netmask of your wan router05:40
mkanyicyRPG-Master, all you ave to do is to use TAB COMPLETION05:40
RPG-Mastermkanyicy: But it's saying: /dev/sda1             895G  849G  416K 100% /05:40
piper69eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:xx:8b:xx:03:xxinet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
mkanyicyRPG-Master, 416K is available05:41
mkanyicyRPG-Master,  the 100% says you have used 100% portion of the disk05:41
RPG-Mastermkanyicy: I do, which typing "mka" and then tabbing gives me mkaay :P05:41
mkanyicyRPG-Master, the second tab will give you 'me'05:41
sacarlsonpiper69: then I guess that won't work since your wan router 2 is off that mask with ip

ZykoticK9linoge, the minimal cd has VERY few drivers on it - i can't even get 10.04s minimal to use my regular ethernet on my EEE, so wireless is probably NOT possible (or very difficult) if it's not automatically working06:45

sirscrubsalothey will Office 2007 run on ubuntu 10,04 LTS (single boot OS laptop)? i'm a medical student and we get a MS office 2007 Home and Student edition - i heard about using "wine" but the web presented with so many varied opinions and tutorials on how to do/run this - my rotations actually require me to use word/powerpoint/onenote - up until now i've been using open office and googledocs, but it's not going to cut it - thanks for inpu07:06
sirscrubsalott and if somebody has a good URL to show me this too , would be great!07:06
joeoshawabut nothing works with every program perfectly07:06
kurusacarlson, no.. I want it permanent. I can configure it and set it up in GNOME and I want to know why I can't extend that to make it permanent, system-wide, independent of X1107:06

dfg34244rlqpmcit is very unstable07:06
kurusacarlson, the original suggestion requires that I do some voodoo configuration.. when GNOME provides me with a very easy GUI interface.. is there anyway to take whatever it's producing and just use them with minor modification/07:06

asfjiohello, guys! i installed openssh-server package in order to login to my machine. now i tried to stop the sshd daemon by "sudo /etc/init.d/ssh stop" and it says stopping OK. then i still was able to login to the machine. when looking into processes i saw "/usr/sbin/sshd -D" is running. am i doing something wrong?07:07
joeoshawawhat are you trying to run exactly07:07
Jordan_Uasfjio: sudo service ssh stop07:07
kurusacarlson, seriously? ok.. thanks but yeah.. that's not a solution07:07

sacarlsonkuru: sorry I don't know07:08
joeoshawahorsefish66 unplug the network cable from the linux box wait for a while for the router to realise its not connected then reconnect it07:09
fenreasfjio, I guess you could kill the process07:09

joeoshawaparticularly a ubuntu machine07:11
joeoshawai have no idea about cisco systems07:12
piper69sacarlson: yes , but my server is a headless, so if it fu**s up i will have to walk all the way to the end of the house and open the rack and pull it out and come back here to reconfig it07:12

Jordan_Usergiu14: What is your end goal?07:49
sergiu14to set up some env variables in all started bash processes07:49
babymammothliveshello, my question is odd. I log into my windows on dual boot on this machine and my ip is different. I log with ubuntu and its stayed the same07:49
sacarlsonsergiu14: you can pipe into stdin but I don't think you can do that after it's already started unless you have piped something to start that will pipe it later07:49
sergiu14so the user doesnt require a boot07:49
realeyesWow, now my router wont even turn on!07:50
shcherbakhm, nothing comes to my head, you can forward output of command (via tty id), but execute? Dunno.07:50
sergiu14nothing is piped(I know how to do it this way), I want something for my situation :p07:50
babymammothlivesdoes anyone know why my ip on ubuntu stays the same andi can change it on windows on the same dual machine?07:51
Jordan_Usergiu14: I still don't understand your end goal.07:51
sergiu14I was tought that root can do anything... so I guess he can do that...but I dont know how07:51
sergiu14END GOAL:  all started bash process get an new env variable07:51
sergiu14so I dont require a bash restart07:52
sergiu14lets say I have 100 started bash processes07:52
sergiu14and I want to update all with a new env variable07:52

sergiu14it a bit odd.. I admit it07:53
sacarlsonsergiu14: I'm not sure when the env values are read, can you just loop on checking one and echo it then change it and see if it changes?07:53
sergiu14the values are read when bash starts.. but in my case.. bash is already started07:53

babymammothlivesi want to force it to renew08:06
Gneababymammothlives: it automatically polls the dhcp server every so often.  open a terminal and type:  tail -f /var/log/syslog  you will see when it does that08:06

babymammothlivescan ANYONE change their ip at will here via terminal?10:08
babymammothlivesif so..how do you do it10:08
sacarlsonbabymammothlives: I created a script to do it so yes10:08
Delphius_sudo ifconfig10:08

stanman246sudo that is10:09
babymammothlivesso which one will do it?10:09
sacarlsonbabymammothlives: Delphius_ problem I have with just ifconfig is that it is overriden from network-manager so my script stops that10:09

Delphius_mkay, but standard linux, to change a ip in console, is using ifconfig10:10
puppyarunkumar413: u can do install that if u have administrative right10:11
kwtmHi. What's the command-line for determining status of a package again? (installed / upgradable / not installed etc.)10:11

ShapeShifter499benedict, I thought my computer could host the java viewer10:58
hosa!ask I need to Google Chrome default fonts settings.10:58
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)10:58
ChipCheroukwtm, Its 10.10.   I think kernel i was runnign was 2.6.35-24 and now trying to run 2.6.35-2510:59
sacarlsondaedra: are these maybe hardware raids that need space for backup like raid1 with mirror10:59
hosa!ask I need to Google Chrome default fonts settings. please help me10:59
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)10:59
Idol_MinderUSUL, I removed the old card (nVidia) and installed a new card (AMD)10:59
daedrabenedict: no I am simply prompted by apt-get to run apt-get install -f again10:59
daedrabenedict: due to unresolved dependencies10:59
ubottuPlease 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. :-)10:59
Idol_MinderUSUL, I also installed the latest driver from amd.com (had to d/l in windows..)10:59
erUSULIdol_Mind: then just remove/move the old xorg.conf aout of the way11:00
daedrabenedict: I can't just apt-get remove them11:00
benedictdaedra: can you give me the unresolved dependicy output?11:00
kwtmChipCherou: Do you still have the grub boot menu with option to boot to previous kernels?  If yes, and booting to earlier works, I'd say use earlier kernel till new upgrade comes out.  Set grub to default to "same bootup as last time"11:00
benedictShapeShifter499: so you want to connect to your pc via vnc?11:00

ShapeShifter499benedict: ya, and I thought the tightvnc-java in the ubuntu repo was a java viewer witch I could also host on the computer I want to control11:01
ChipCheroukwtm, I will do that if the new nvidia drivers fail me11:02
daedrabenedict: maybe i should just try a reboot11:02
benedictdaedra: hm, i think, before resolving the space problem (wich might be a lie looking at it now ;) ) you sould resolve the dependency problem first..11:02
benedictdaedra: yes... but make sudo apt-get update first11:02
Idol_Mindwow, brain fart... where is xorg.conf located? *blush*11:03
erUSULIdol_Mind: /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:03
benedictIdol_Mind: /etc/11:03
daedrabenedict: how do I resolve this then?11:03
erUSULIdol_Mind: "locate xorg.conf"11:03
benedictdaedra: 'sudo apt-get update', reboot11:03

Squarismis there some nice tool to get an overview of what occupies space on a disc?11:15
erUSULSquarism: Aplications>Accesories>disk use analizer11:15
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: didn't even notice it before...so I thought i'd find someone who knew a bit about java based malware.  I didn't see it when I would use "top -c" or "ps -eF | less" either11:16
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: but without a doubt it wasn't too hard to remove...just manually going through directories and removing them11:17
GneaUs3r_Unfriendly: that's assuming it didn't actually do any damage elsewhere on the system11:17
benedictdaedra: did ti work?11:18
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: i don't even notice anything, but that's the best kind of malware there is...the kind you don't see11:18
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: I'm going to remove java...it's a huge security risk...cross-platformed risk11:19
GneaUs3r_Unfriendly: up to you11:19
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: i don't need it11:19

erUSULSquarism: gksudo baobab &11:20
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: but i got to hand it to bitdefender on linux, don't know why it's not in the repos but awesome, awesome command line scanner11:20
GneaUs3r_Unfriendly: there's clamav, but that's just the basic form11:21
daedrabenedict: oh dear. it won't boot into X11:21
daedrabenedict: and the error message at the end of boot (just before CLI login prompt) is too breif to see11:21
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: i've used clam and avast before...the gui's always seem to stop working for some reason for me.  But i'm all cli anyways so i don't use them.  Avast and Clam are just okay, nothing more in my opinion11:22
daedraI just spent the last 10 minutes fiddling with wpa_supplicant to get an internet connection since NetworkManager used to do that11:22
GneaUs3r_Unfriendly: they're really made to write better front-ends for11:22
daedraI know I should have foreseen problems with GUI-only network access11:22
Gneadaedra: it's usually not a problem11:23
daedraunless I'm missing something11:23
benedictdaedra: this is one of the few thing i never got around - wireless in commandline11:23
Gneait's possible11:23
daedraoh I've done it11:23
benedictdaedra: do you can a clabe at hand. it will be better than fiddling ;)11:23
daedrabut it's just horrible11:24
Gneaoh, wireless in cli has saved me before11:24
GunnDawgmy wireless works perfect11:24
GunnDawgon 10.10 running on a Toshiba laptop11:24
benedictGnea: how do you manage it? ifconfig or any ncures software?11:24
GneaGunnDawg: yeah, but you've only been running it a couple days now :)11:24
NewToUbuntuI've just downloaded a software synthesizer(instrument) and installed it using the software center. I've now searched for it but can't actually find the program. I'm using netbook remix 10.10. Any help would be appreciated11:24
sacarlsondaedra: I found this message in you fdisk -l Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.   but I assume this won't be seen if we do sudo sfdisk -uS -l /dev/sda11:24
Us3r_Unfriendlywireless in cli...where's the file for the config in /etc for wireless?  I don't know seeing that i'm paranoid and don't use wireless, but it'd be nice to know just in case11:24
Gneabenedict: ncurses? pfft, iwconfig and dhclient11:25
GunnDawgGnea, so your saying over time the wireless will just quit working? seems unlogical11:25
benedictGnea: with a wpa2 network?11:25
daedraunlogical XD11:25
jribNewToUbuntu: dpkg -L PACKAGE | grep bin11:25
GneaGunnDawg: no, I'm saying that different places will result in different results11:25
Gneabenedict: any network11:25
GunnDawgGnea, ah yeah well thats pretty true with windows also, some wifi spots work and some dont11:26
Gneaobviously, if encryption is involved, have to kick wpa_supplicant into gear at some point11:26
benedictGnea: wpa2 always caused me troubles :( also i dont feel comfortable writing my wpa2 password to a file11:26
GunnDawgwhat is wpa_supplicant good for ?11:26
GneaGunnDawg: yup, they tend to be configured differently at times... heh, I found a public access point not too long ago that was 101% open11:26
Lala_Chersihi there i ve installed myth tv in ubuntu cant set it right for my tv card ... any ideas11:26
benedictdaedra: so now you have network connection?11:27
Gneaand by 101%, I mean the extra 1% was in relation to the fact that the AP had no password set for the admin account11:27
GunnDawgGnea, wow11:27
rethusi had installed gnome beside my kde. now gnome is gone, but on kde startup i get an errormessage about missing screenlets (the packages are also removed). why kde ask on startup for screenlets?11:27
Gneait was hilarious. I set a password on it and it stopped handing out IP's.11:27
Gneadidn't change anything else11:28
Bipul`How shud i know i have Mysql installed on my ubuntu 10.1011:28
Gneayes, it was a belkin :)11:28
GunnDawgGnea, what is wpa_supplicant used for ?11:28
GneaGunnDawg: encryption algorithms - wep, wpa1, wpa2, etc11:28
benedictGunnDawg: wpa2 encryption11:28
daedraalso wpa11:28
Idol_Mindwhen I try to install the latest ati drivers (again), I get all kinds of make errors... how do I properly remove the previous install and try again?11:28
GunnDawgGnea, so it cracks weps ?11:28
GneaGunnDawg: no, it handles encryption for your network connection11:28
GunnDawgah ok11:28
GneaGunnDawg: it's the component that makes it *work* :)11:28

Us3r_Unfriendlystartx doesn't work for you daedra ?11:30

jribbenedict: space on the cd is precious11:34
daedrahow is dhclient different?11:34
Bored26mI have read the rules, so apologies if this isn't appropriate: I've lost my wireless connection, rfkill says it isn't blocked at all..and ubuntu no longer asks me for my default keyring n starup...using ubuntu 10.10, and it worked fine until this morning11:34
GneaGunnDawg: ah okay, well I remember introducing the concept to you, didn't figure you'd jump right into it lol11:34
sacarlsondaedra: static ip?11:34
GneaGunnDawg: very cool, though :)11:34
GunnDawgoh I thought you meant my E16 issue11:34
GunnDawgno I Havent messed or looked into "screen" yet11:34
daedrasacarlson: no11:34
benedictjrib: eben the minimal install11:34
Us3r_UnfriendlyGunnDawg: it's like irssi but with a different command-line/interface layout.  it's command-line11:35
daedraI've always got my ip via dhcpcd11:35
GneaGunnDawg: I use irssi all the time. I like to use it within screen so that if I have to logout/login to the system, I can do so without having irssi interrupted11:35
daedrahow do you get it using dhclient11:35
benedictGnea: have you tried tmux?11:36
Us3r_UnfriendlyGunnDawg: my youtube video where i'm using wee-chat11:36
GunnDawgGnea, where can I learn abot how to use it ? I did use "screen irssi" when I launched this though11:36
daedra(screen is also good to detach form on a server for that reason)11:36

Goliathi removed a package lets say gnome, but gnome keeps working11:36
Goliathwhy is that happening?11:36
* jrib bets goliath removed his irc client...11:36
GneaGunnDawg: it's pretty much a matter of understanding how the ctrl sequences work11:36
GneaGunnDawg: but you understand vim, so the learning curve won't be too bad11:37
Gneabenedict: nope11:37
Us3r_Unfriendlyvim is awesome!11:37
sacarlsondaedra: iwconfig wlan0 essid youraccesspointname; sudo dhclient wlan011:37
Us3r_Unfriendlyvi is old school and i found out i was pronouncing vi wrong this whole time lol11:37
daedrayep,  thats what I'm doing11:37
GunnDawgpretty cool chat Us3r_Unfriendly, I might get that11:37
jribUs3r_Unfriendly: erm, what were you saying?11:37
benedictGnea: it's like screen, but a bit "cleaner" . also it natively supports slpitting vertically and horizontally... and you can ask it to use vim syntax :D11:38
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: what are you comparing to vim?11:38
daedrasacarlson: with the added wpa_supplicant call11:38
Us3r_Unfriendlyjrib: about what? the vi or vim part?11:38
jribUs3r_Unfriendly: pronouncing "vi"?11:38
GneaUs3r_Unfriendly: the difference between command and input modes11:38
Us3r_Unfriendlyjrib: i was pronouncing it to friends as (Veeee) when it's actually pronounced (Vee I)11:39
jribBored26m: no idea, but try messing with network manager some?11:39
sacarlsondaedra: I'm not sure where to add wpa_supplicant on the command line,  maybe in /etc/network/interfaces11:39
daedraI say "vie" for vi but "vim" for ... vim11:39
jribUs3r_Unfriendly: I see11:39
Us3r_UnfriendlyGnea: okay yeah it's like that11:39
daedrasacarlson: Its worked on my archlinux box11:39
Gneabenedict: interesting..11:39
daedrasacarlson: I place it after iwconfig wlan0 essid "ESSID",  and before dhcpcd11:40
benedictGnea: it' in the ubuntu repos11:40
Gneabenedict: I'll have to give it a shot when I get my other system up and running11:40
Gneabenedict: yeah, I just don't have time to learn something completely new right now11:40
Bored26mjrib: been doing that all morning! is it possible to remove and reinstall do you know...or will the fact that I've got a wired connection on the go stop it uninstalling completely?11:40
daedratmux comes with a status bar at the bottom by default, which is nice11:40
daedraas that's harder to configure in screen11:40
Us3r_UnfriendlyVeee I in my opinion makes it sound like a futuristic system, vi is old school command line editor.  And i say this about the actually Vi version out there, not the one installed on Ubuntu be default, which is more like vim11:40
benedictGnea: it has some kind of bulit in help... like the vim help11:41
jribBored26m: well can you think of any reason for it to stop working?  Did you change anything? Install any updates?11:41
daedrabut everyone knows the best editor is ED11:41
