StFSHi. I just installed Ubuntu using the netinstall usb and I managed to mess up writing the MBR to the disk and somehow wrote it to the installation flash drive instead. I was able to fix this by doing "grub-setup '(hd0)'" but I'm just worried that I'm leaving something out... perhaps some config file that should be updated so that future upgrades and such will not try to find the MBR on the USB key but the MBR on my hdd00:16

ubottuhylian: If you are adding space to your Ubuntu installation mounting a newly created unix filesystem (ext3, xfs, jfs, etc) you can not set permissions (read, write, etc) filesystem-wide like you do when mounting filesystems that do not support unix permissions (vfat, ntfs, hfs, etc).  See !permissions and !fstab00:46

bryhoyt1Hi, I'm trying to set up a gstreamer pipeline with a gamma adjustment. There are 2 gamma plugins for gstreamer, but they've got issues. The "gamma" plugin isn't actually gamma, it just sets the brightness (real gamma should not interfere with the black & white points). The "frei0r-filter-gamma" plugin does the right thing with black & white, but it adds a blueish/washed-out tinge to my whole video. Why? How can I get a decent gamma using gstreamer?00:52

kwtmOh, wait.  I don't know what happens to the swap space if there's a hibernated system living there ...02:16
Cyberfusioni want to suspend ubuntu into swap then reboot into windows02:16

santhoshthat is  wen v generally do ssh -p 1234 user@example.com -L 5005:localhost:5005 . we will go inside the example.com and also use the localhost:5005 from our local system from where we ssh, but this tends to be lost once we close the ocnnection but i want to do this permanently04:13
GanymedeHello, I have Maverick with fglrx from the repository. I have a laptop with a Radeon HD3200-ish (I'm guessing it does not have EyeInfinity). I have a projector hooked up via VGA (working perfectly, can be enabled through both xrandr and the GUI displays utility). I just got a new monitor and would like to use it via HDMI but the GUI utility does not detect it. I've heard aticonfig --initial can fix it but aticonfig help suggests that I have to d04:14
Ganymedeecide then my resolutions and screen layout...but doesn't both AMDCCCLE and xrandr allow me to change that after aticonfig? It suggests only two devices can be used at a time...does that mean I have to re-run aticonfig every time I want to switch between VGA projector and HDMI monitor? And AMDCCCLE appears to not work at the moment.04:14

Ganymedemadmn, Here's one for Maverick with vsftpd: http://www.jonathanmoeller.com/screed/?p=2127 but I strongly urge you to look into SFTP instead.04:24
jeffwheelerA while back I tried buying an album from the Ubuntu One music store and got an international surcharge fee at my bank (I'm in the US). Does this still happen?04:24
madmn_there is no package called that04:24
pnormanI've got a ubunutu 10.10 server where I just installed an intel network card. I've installed the drivers from intel (essentially following http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=601222) and now have eth0 and eth1 showing up in `ifconfig -a` but neither have IPs. Where should I go from there?04:24
tomreynmadmn_: i, too, think you really want to install openssh-server and use sftp04:25
madmn_i am using filezilla right now04:25
* pnorman agrees with sftp and openssh04:25
Ghastlywhile I know this is likely the wrong place to ask this, (have asked in the correct places as well)04:26
madmn_do you know where to get open-ssh server04:26
jeffwheelerHmm, it looks like this is my issue: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1528557 - I'll see if there's a way to pick the store.04:26

tomreynmadmn_: it's "openssh-server", a package available in the ubuntu repositories.04:27
blackxoredI have  the odd question of the day for you guys, I was wondering how to speed up a very slow link to a VPN server in term of web browsing, things such as disabling encryption are out of question, but what about other ways, such as setting up a cache proxy or something??? Any clues on it?04:27
GanymedeI don't see what's so odd about that..but bye.04:28
madmn_does ubuntu come with any programming software04:28
erpomadmn: a ton. What language?04:28
madmn_to program c sharp04:28
blackxoredGanymede, hehhe ok04:28
erpomadmn: For .Net?04:29
blackxoredmadmn_: you can try monodevelop04:29
madmn_yeah right now i am learning console applications04:29
blackxoredor you can go to vala04:29
blackxoreddoes anybody here, not sleep, can answer my question? :P04:29
Ghastlytrying to figure out how to set the correct environmental variables in crystalspace (have read the docs, asked around)... its... very... strange... I know HOW to set it, just well... not where (docs haven't helped / Google refers to the docs, logic disagrees)04:29
Ghastlyany help would be greatly appreciated04:29
tomreynmadmn_: if your goal is to access your desktop computer from the internet and you have a standard residential internet access there, then you also need to set up port forwarding in your router (the devices which usually also gets you access to the internet, you usually access it by web address, somthing like ) and, if the external IP address you get assignd by your internet provider changes regularly, you also need some 'dyndns'04:30
AbhijiTmadmn, every linux has gcc inbuilt04:30
blackxoredmadmn_: If C# is your thing, then go to monodevelop, you won't get CLR 4 but it's a good project04:30
madmn_okay and i should look into sftp for ftp software then not filezilla /04:32
tomreynmadmn_: i think filezilla does support sftp04:32
Ghastlyit does04:33
tomreynmadmn: i think filezilla does support sftp04:33

VooDooNOFXI'm having some troubles installing ununtu-10.10-netbook-i386 into my Toshiba Portege 3505 tablet. It shows the initial text based screen, then dumps to busybox within about a minute.04:35
BlueEaglemadmn: In most cases the USB drives are detected automatically.04:36
VooDooNOFXI see some forums recommending that I put all_generic_ide floppy=off irqpoll, but not sure where to type them in04:36
blackxoredVooDooNOFX: usually, corrupted ISO04:36
tomreynblackxored: what does your route to the VPN server look like (best test this with the VPN off/disabled)? is it a lot of hops, do you have packet loss?04:36
blackxoredVooDooNOFX: at your bootloader screen?04:36
BlueEaglemadmn: Try running dmesg after connecting the USB drive.04:36
sre-suHow to install xfce in Ubuntu?04:37
blackxoredtomreyn: I'm basically routing all my traffic through the VPN04:37
VooDooNOFXit's installing from a pcmcia dvd-rom, it's the 3rd iso i've burned, and i've now tried desktop, netbook and alternate versions. I can try booting from a windows cd to test the drive, but this laptop doesn't support usb booting :(04:37
blackxoredtomreyn: I do have a lot of hops which come by my ISP, sadly couldn't get rid of them ;)04:37
blackxoredVooDooNOFX: the third you tried, ok, have you bothered to md5sum at least one? ;)04:38
VooDooNOFXblackxored: it dumps me directly to a (initramfs) screen. Not sure, but that doesn't appear to be the bootloader04:38
tomreynblackxored: so maybe your issue is your network route to the VPN server then?04:38
_jesse_sre-su: sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop04:38
blackxoredVooDooNOFX: weird, that's not finding kernel04:38
BlueEaglemadmn: You're looking for something similar to " usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4"04:38

dw1hello - looking for some Windows 7 Ubuntu 10.4 dual boot install advice. Anyone here can help?04:39
blackxoredI wanted to know if caching proxies will do it, if dialup acceleration services are worth, that kind of stuff04:39
BlueEagleblackxored: It works.04:39
madmnit saw it before04:39
BlueEagleblackxored: Sorry. Wrong nick.04:39
sre-su_jesse_: Will it affect if the system is Kubuntu?04:39
tomreynblackxored: if your route to the VPN server is bad then, of course, all routes you establish through it will be, too.04:39
BlueEagledw1: It works.04:39
madmnbut since i reinstalled it is not seeing it04:39
dw1Windows 7 is already installed. I want to "install them side by side" without changing the size of any existing partitions, so I am torn between "install them side by side......" and "use the largest continuous free space"04:39
dw1 I want to do exactly both of these things, but I am asked to choose between them (or go manual).04:39
dw1 Which is preferred?04:39
sre-su_jesse_: or its desktop environment?04:39
BlueEaglemadmn: Does dmesg show anything when plugging it in?04:39
_jesse_dw1: just as your question04:39
blackxoredtomreyn: what was this name of a software I can use to test network quality between my two links, my machine and the VPN server per se04:40
pnormanI think I've got my problem fixed - i changed eth0 in /etc/network/interfaces to eth104:40
_jesse_sre-su: no04:40
madmnwhere do i run that ?04:40

tomreynblackxored: where does the loss take place according to mtr?04:44
blackxoredabhilashm86: you should move, but for that matters you'll only need NAT, let the windows take care of networking for you04:44
BlueEaglemadmn: Does it show anything with numbers after sdf?04:44
dw1_jesse_: The format of a choice between radio buttons does not make this altogether clear04:44
blackxoredtomreyn: umm you'll blame me, but's basically everywhere04:45
blackxoredit's down now to 14%04:45
madmnsays /dev/sdf04:45
_jesse_dw1: it'll install to the largest free space, yes; shouldn't overwrite any partitions (I assume you backed up just in case, right?)04:45
dw1_jesse_: there is a dount in my mind as to whether only the "Install them side-by-side radio button will allow the dual boot to work?04:45
BlueEaglemadmn: sudo fdisk -l /dev/sdf04:45
tomreynblackxored: run mtr like this: disable the VPN, then mtr -i 5 VPN-HOST04:45

blackxoredtomreyn: all right04:46
blackxoredI might loose this connecction, please keep on04:46
tomreynblackxored: yes, with VPN disabled, since you want to know whether the underlying network route causes your trouble or the VPN server itself.04:46
_jesse_dw1: I have never seen that option though, maybe they added it to make it clearer for newcomers04:46
dw1_jesse_: OK. So I guess it is just a slight imperfection in the interface documentation of that screen in the install procedure:04:46
dw1_jesse_: well there are  4 radio buttons I have to select between04:47
BlueEaglemadmn: Did you have data on this drive before?04:47
madmni know there was data on it04:47
_jesse_dw1: yeah, I think it's just to make it 'nicer' when people want to dual boot with windows04:47
madmndoes that mean its gone ?04:48
dw1_jess_: and only the first of these 4 explicitly says "Install them side by side, choosing between them at startup"04:48
_jesse_dw1: right, should be largest contiguous space, manual, and guided or whatnot04:48
BlueEaglemadmn: Because there is no longer a partition table on that disk, which means you're looking at restoring from backup unless youc an recover the partition table.04:48
BlueEaglemadmn: You _do_ have backup, don't you?04:48
madmnyes i think its on another computer04:48
dw1_jess_: so there's a possible interpreation  of the interface that choicese 2,3, and 4 will not do the "side by side" selection thing as well as 1 will04:48
_jesse_dw1: hmm... well like I said, I'm not familiar with that option; it may have been added in a new release.  It's been a while since I did side-by-side with Windows04:48
madmnbut how do i get this drive to work in here for the future04:48
dw1__jesse_ to press or not to press04:49
KREDOhi all04:49
BlueEaglemadmn: Since the disk does currently not have a partition table you need to create one. This is typically done with fdisk or gparted.04:49
KREDOI have a dual processor computer, when I open the System Monitor the CPU usage shows 100%, but I have no program is open04:49
dw1Maybe I'll delay a few more mins in case I get another view04:49
BlueEaglemadmn: You may want to look at http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/Partition-Rescue.html if you want to attempt to rescue the data on the disk.04:49
madmnlet me check that i said it is a data traveller usb drive04:50
_jesse_dw1: that is the question. I don't think that option could possible do any better than just installing to largest free space04:50
_jesse_dw1: since grub will see them all regardless04:50
_jesse_dw1: might be a good idea, maybe someone is familiar with that option04:50
madmnits just a little flash drive not an actual hard disk04:50
KREDOI have a dual processor computer, when I open the System Monitor the CPU usage shows 100%, but I have no program is open, help me04:50

Ghastlypretty much crystalspace through either a manual install, or ubuntu managed install, spreads EVERYTHING out04:56
blackxoredok, let's shift the focus, onto software-based speed up things, can a cache proxy provide some help, and if that, there's something lighter than setting up squid (setting squid for that purpose is a breeze, doing it over dialup it's suicide ;))04:56
evilsushiKREDO: paste your top output04:56

blackxoredtomreyn: great, that's the spirit, so any clues about caching ???04:59
blackxoredwill it prove helpful04:59
blackxoredthrough a VPN link?04:59
evilsushiGhastly: use ./configure --help see if there is a option to pass the lib into the configure04:59
blackxoredit'll speed things up or it's a total waste of time/resources/you name it04:59
sacarlsonblackxored: wow dialup, It's too many beers back to remember anything about that04:59
KREDOapt-get uses 100% CPU04:59
blackxoredevilsushi: usually all that kind of stuff is/should be on a BUILD/INSTALL file, if you want custom location is normally --prefix=<location> if you want to compile with some linked lib in an abnormal path is normally --with-<lib>=<location>05:00

blackxoredsacarlson: the ones I'll get into myself when we get rid of these ;) but sadly it's what we've got for outside access05:00
tomreynblackxored: i'd start on the lower layers and work to the higher ones. I think when you say "caching" you refer to a http proxy cache. That would be a higher layer. I'd start debug your network link first, see if there are issues which actually allow you to solve your issues (whichever those actually are, you never specified this).05:01

madmnso i can get a partion table on it05:02
tomreynblackxored: however, if you still want to start with looking into a http proxy cache, then this can be a good way to cut down on traffic which needs to flow through the line. and if you have a low bandwidth link there, which I assume based on what you said so far, then I'd suggest you use one. Squid is the de facto standard there.05:03

BlueEaglemadmn: So you want "n" for new partition and it should be a primary partition. Accept the default start and end cylinders.05:05
sri_other downloads are going smoothly05:05
BlueEagleblackxored: Because he'll hardly learn anything from it. ;)05:05
blackxoredtomreyn: ok, let's break it down, I am slow obviously since right now i'm using a dialup connection, the endpoint is way faster on the other hand where internet speed is blazing05:05
KREDOBlueEagle not working properly but I'm afraid that computer is not good05:06
blackxoredI wanted to know if putting a cache server on the endpoint would help my dialup UX to seem faster05:06
=== keastes is now known as kisuke
overcluckerfdisk it a little too heavy05:06
blackxoredBlueEagle: good point, is on you if we don't hear from him again ;)05:06
tomreynblackxored: so you are getting all the speed you can expect to get, based on its technical limits, on the dial-up line?05:06
overcluckersfdisk or cfdisk would probably be better for a first time user05:07
blackxoredI'm not 100% sure, but I have a strong feeling I am05:07
sri_its not getting started.. its not working05:07
evilsushiboth of those are more confusing than fdisk imo05:07
blackxoredsince it's to limited05:07
pnormantomreyn: I just moved the server to it's home for the next 10 years, and it came up properly on bootup05:07
blackxoredthe speed ;)05:07
pnormanWhich is good, since to type anything in where it is I have to balance on one foot, hold the keyboard with one hand, type with the other, and use my knee to keep from falling over05:08
BlueEaglemadmn: When you've defined the partition you need to give it a type. press "T" and select type 7 "HPFS/NTFS"05:08
overcluckercfdisk too much gui for you, hehe05:08
blackxoredI'd personally stick to fdisk/mkfs but I do find parted quite useful and easy05:08
tomreynblackxored: if you want to be sure, run a speedtest with and without the VPN and compare the results. Use http://speedtest.net/ - or, for serious debugging, netperf.05:08
blackxoredand of course gparted, which was my initial recomm endation05:09
BlueEagleblackxored: It's just an USB drive that's already w/o a partition table.05:09
blackxoredtomreyn: netperf requires a server?05:09
jukmadmn: why not just right click and format?05:09
blackxoredjuk: the brilliant answer ;)05:09
BlueEaglejuk: Because you cannot right-click a drive that has got no partitions.05:09
blackxoredtomreyn: I remember a tool which was client/side05:09
jukBlueEagle: ah05:09
tomreynblackxored: i already responded to the question regarding the http proxy cache. and no, netperf does not require a special server, but an endpoint to connect to.05:09
BlueEaglejuk: But thank you for playing.05:10
jukBlueEagle: np05:10
blackxoredtomreyn: meaning?05:10
BlueEaglemadmn: Now after you've written the partition table with "w" quit fdisk with "q"05:10
blackxoredI assume I just can't try to connect anywhere, right?05:10
tomreynpnorman: i do not understand what you are trying to say.05:10
tomreynblackxored: netperf measures the trhoughput of network interfaces.05:11
blackxoredtomreyn: i'll stick to speedtest for the moment, it's flashy but who cares05:11
BlueEaglemadmn: Now you _may_ need to reformat the drive. If you're lucky however it was just the partition table that was wiped and not the filesystem. You can try mounting it and see what you've got.05:11
BlueEaglemadmn: I recomend you reformat it in any case.05:11
blackxoredI didn't like the term debugging ;) sounded like a full OSI stack evaluation at what's now 12:11am here ;)05:11
tomreynblackxored: you can use it to check whether there is less throughput on the VPN than there should be.05:11
BlueEagleblackxored: Pfft... It's 06:12 am here. ;)05:12
pnormantomreyn: it's working05:12
blackxoredi'm a late sleepier, you guys are early wakers, who would tell?05:13
overcluckershame on you blackxored, BlueEagle for having the wrong times, it's 9:13pm here05:13
tomreynblackxored: i guess http://speedtest.net/ is good enough. be sure to stop all other processes and quit any applications causing any internet traffic during your tests. if you want to test this at all.05:13
sre-suI did <sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop> But after selection of default display manager as gdm/kdm, I get the error as dpkg: ... : No space left on device and E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (2). Should I do apt-get clean or what to fix it?05:13

snotmonkeybawlshi i am having troubles with my awl5088 mini usb driver05:19
SnakkahAfter I did a system update (the most recent update to Ubuntu 10.10 that upgraded the kernel to, the Disk Utility is reporting one bad sector on my hard drive. I checked the system for errors by booting into the Live CD and running fsck and it was fine...05:19
Frenkoverclucker: yes.05:19
snotmonkeybawlsanybody ever work with it?05:19
SnakkahIt's also saying that my external hard drive has one bad sector.05:19
SnakkahIs this just an update bug, or what?05:19
evilsushisnotmonkeybawls: whats the prob05:21
tomreynpnorman: by the way i'm surprised that you had to install the intel driver to get the NIC working. this should no longer be the case.05:21
snotmonkeybawlswell i was trying to install my awl5088 network adapter05:21
littleruehi guys, is there any way i can get ls to restrict the output to just hidden files or to just directories?05:22
tomreynpnorman: unless you're using really current hardware there, maybe.05:22
evilsushilittlerue: man ls05:22
snotmonkeybawlsthe adapter started functioning. it goes online. i perform a speed test and it registers at 2.55 MBps. however, when i download something from a good website like download.com, it only downloads at 10kb05:22
SnakkahNo answers?05:22
LoshkiSnakkah: a hard drive in good shape should remap bad sectors so you don't even see them. If I were you, I would download and run the manufacturer's own diagnostic on the disk...05:23
littlerueevilsushi: i did, but i think (from reading it) that it's only capable of showing hidden files AND regular files or directories AND regular files, not restrict the output to a subset therein. Any idea?05:23
evilsushilittlerue: regex05:23
evilsushilittlerue: ls -a | grep '^\.'05:23
FrenkI also have another question - who of you can tell me, if my smart-values are good or bad (http://oi55.tinypic.com/33w0f3d.jpg) I do not get along with whats "normal" for smart values.05:23
pnormantomreyn: The card was manufactured in week 51 of 2010, the motherboard is similarly recent. I think the reason I had to install the drivers was that I installed the card *after* i set up the server, since I didn't have it initially05:23
evilsushilittlerue:  http://www.robelle.com/smugbook/regexpr.html05:24
lamefunWhat's the size of ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso, in bytes?05:24
littlerueevilsushi: ok, so ls has no ability to do this itself?05:25
snotmonkeybawlsevilsushi: the adapter started functioning. it goes online. i perform a speed test and it registers at 2.55 MBps. however, when i download something from a good website like download.com, it only downloads at 10kb05:25
tomreynpnorman: ok, that's pretty recent, and could be why. but i think it's more likely then that you're just missing the firmware blobs package so that the in-kernel drivers would work05:25

FrenkLoshki: thx. is there a (console) utility which can tell me whether my smart values are good or bad?05:28
LoshkiSnakkah: it may be that as a result of the update, you're accessing disk blocks that you weren't using before the update. It doesn't change my advice about your next step...05:28
robertzaccourjuk, just a few blurred frames every several seconds. not an issue w/o compiz but compiz is on and running by default and certain applications require it, so i think this qualifies as a bug05:28

pnormantomreyn: Ya, I was surprised that it didn't work out of the box, but the intel network cards are the best in the price range I was looking at05:34
littlerueevilsushi: tell me what you think of this api: 'ls' by itself just displays regular entries; 'ls -c' displays regular entries PLUS constants; 'ls -i' just displays regular entries PLUS instance variables. So all the flags add to the regular entries unless you combine then with the '-r' flag which restricts the output to just those flags you specify05:34
littlerueevilsushi: so 'ls -rc' just displays constants, etc.05:34

sri_how to change system startup os selection menu05:43
jukaroshlakshan: i think you want system monitor applet on gnome-panel05:43
kevdogYou could set up a cron script to calculate the md5 of the directory like every 15 minutes (or whatever you want), and if its changed it could email you -- not sure how to do sms although it might be possible05:43
tomreynblackxored: that your internet connection is very laggy. it takes 1 second for data to travel from your computer to the speedtest site you tested against. normally if the server you were testing against is in the same country as you, you should not get anything more than 200 milliseconds, so 0.2 seconds maximum there.05:43
blackxoredevilsushi: yeah, inotify it is, another shot, you can have even shell script aware tools installing inotify-tools for that matter05:44
blackxoredtomreyn: in deed05:44
blackxoredwithout vpn the results were better, but didn't really made a big difference05:45
sri_how to change the delay of os selection menu05:45
tomreynblackxored: and speedtest.net has many servers in many locations across the world so chances are you did have a close server to test against. however, if you were testing with your VPN active that would explain increased latency, but it should still be no more than ~ .2 seconds, not 1.005:45
aroshlakshanjuk: it does not count the my whole traffic. it only counts my traffic in a single session. when i restart my PC it resets05:45
evilsushikevdog: kinda sorta what I am doing now.. I think inotify or dnotify may be better since its a daemon05:45
blackxoredsri_: /etc/default/grub, search for timeout, update-grub and reboot05:45
kevdogevilsushi: Probably -- but cron is a daemon too!!05:46
jukaroshlakshan: ah05:46
blackxoredtomreyn: i was testing both ways, when the vpn was active chose some server from the UK, so it was close05:46
tomreynblackxored: but in fact i don't really know what commonlatencies are on voice modem links. so this can be totally okay.05:46
blackxoredtomreyn: "okay" heck no it's okay, you meant standard, common, right? :P05:47
evilsushikevdog: yea but I want to be notified like immediately and running a cron every few seconds to call a bash script is not very resource friendly =)05:47
tomreynblackxored: right05:47
blackxoredevilsushi: i'm not really on it, but i think inotify uses some kind of evented programming, it'll wrap the call you want to make through cron for you05:47

aroshlakshanjuk: what? i didnt understand05:50
blackxoredevilsushi: from the inotify read, <aside>I'm a nice guy I even opened the README for you</aside> inotifywait simply blocks for inotify events, making it appropiate for use in shell scripts05:50

tomreynblackxored: where are you located and is money much of an issue, and are there other access options or do you have to use the dial-up per policy?05:50

blackxored__shai: hoping forward to hear an answer to that, kinda tricky, specially since I believe find uses glob, but not sure05:53
blackxoredtomreyn: well it talks very little about this odd case05:54
tomreynblackxored: page load time depends on may things. in this case i think the webservers just respond a bit slow.05:54

robertzaccouri'm adding a choppy video to the bug report05:55
tomreynblackxored: my point for the quotation frm wikipedia was just that your latency should not be considerably higher than 400 ms. you seem to have a remarkably bad link.05:55
blackxoredin deed, it seems, I do have to agree with you05:56
blackxoredthat was a nice part that vikingur05:56
tomreyn__shai: just within one directory level, or across subdirectories, too?05:56
blackxoredbut the fact is the options on what the ... i can do about it are pretty limited right?05:57
=== AndChat is now known as Guest58340
tomreynblackxored: i don't know how it would look like with VPN off. so this could be an option. but if it looks the same, then if you have a choice, get a different link. even mobile network links should be faster.05:58
blackxoredI bet you guys that followed that link must actually play that modem sound on the right to even remember what we're talking about here ;) For my purposes, I have it muted05:58
piercedwaterDoes anyone know of any cli hotkey applications for 10.0.4?05:58
=== MS_IS_s--h-i---t is now known as kderocks
blackxoredtomreyn: weren't a lot faster, actually let met tell you, you can shame on speedtest, but the vpn was actually faster on download/upload speeds05:59
evilsushiblackxored: you should reverse proxy everything you do to your local machine so it seems super fast =)05:59
blackxoredtomreyn: let me switch buffers and actually tell you06:00
blackxoredping: 869ms, download: 0.03mpbs, upload: 0.02mbps06:00
robertzaccourhope attatching a video for the but will help the process06:00
tomreynblackxored: yeah, bad measurement regarding the speeds apparently. but the ltency test should still be of use. but then you can do this yourself using 'ping' to some well-connected server in your area06:00
blackxoredevilsushi: sounds interesting, let me get a 250TB hard drive so I can get the internet ;)06:00
blackxoredand browse locally, that would be heck faster06:00
evilsushiblackxored: 250TB SSD =)06:01
blackxoredoh right, as it even mattered ;)06:01
blackxoredfrom the vpn, pinging google.co.uk it's 875ms06:01
blackxoredspeedtest wasn't that wrong06:01
blackxoredi'm starting to believe (or resign) that we can't do pretty much anything about it06:02
tomreynblackxored: well you said "download: 0.03mbps, upload: 0.06mbps, ping: 1068ms" for the VPN to speedtest.net, so either their ping server is badly connected or it badly measured there, too06:03
blackxoredOk now I want you guys to sign me an NDA on not to post on twitter how slow it's my external access to my work's network06:03
evilsushiblackxored: do a real test, scp a file over the vpn and scp a file over non-vpn link06:03
blackxoredtomreyn: I haven't noticed06:03
blackxoredtomreyn: sleepy I guess06:03
blackxoredit's indeed way faster06:03
tomreynblackxored: but yeah, you have a bad connection there, it's not the VPN being the issue. use a proxy cache if you have to continue using this connection.06:03
blackxoredand I chose a server close enough to the vpn06:03

blackxoredrobertzaccour: my question is? is the video really necessary for reproducing what you're experiencing?06:08
mneptokrobertzaccour: videos attached to bug reports does not scale06:08
blackxoredevilsushi: no idea06:08
robertzaccourblackxored, its a video recording of exactly what is happening06:08
blackxoredmneptok: you mean like you can't zoom them on the browser? :P06:08
robertzaccourmneptok, does not scale? what you mean by that?06:08
blackxoredrobertzaccour: I won't be the one to tell you a conclusive answer, go #ubuntu-motu and ask there06:09
robertzaccourblackxored, whats that channel about?06:09
blackxoredthose are the developers of the universe repository06:09
blackxoredyou can also try #ubuntu-devel, for the same matter06:09
blackxoredbut i'm pretty sure I've never heard about video reporting before06:10
evilsushiSo I made the switch a few weeks ago, took all my production servers from centos to ubuntu06:10
blackxoredmaybe with some compiz, fire on this is when it crashed, kinda cool lol06:10
blackxoredevilsushi: so you switched "from" centos06:11
blackxoredgreat to know06:11
blackxoredplease tell godaddy06:11
Strife89Is there any way for me to make the battery meter show a percentage indicator over/in place of the icon? (using Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop)06:11
blackxoredand a lot more of VPS providers which offer centos as it's most stable, which i dont' care, but only - which I do care- solution06:12
evilsushiblackxored: try linode for vps systems06:12
evilsushiblackxored: godaddy is a cpanel hosting service yea? that bloated crap06:12
blackxoredevilsushi: nah, I've pretty much sticked to amazon06:12
blackxoredevilsushi: ok, you might be hurting some feelings06:12
blackxoredI was thinking about transferring my domain there06:13
blackxoredbut the hosting really sucks06:13
blackxoredand reading some reviews, well it's not for me06:13
blackxoredlinode to the list06:13
evilsushilinode is the best06:13
blackxoredsure, you start to see a pattern06:13
blackxoredhey my hoster is blackxored, he's the best, everyone's provider seem to be the best06:14

blackxoredinvoke-rc.d: command not found on centos, if you know what I mean06:17
robertzaccourWhenever I do a screen recording with gtk-recordMyDesktop and compiz running at the same time, which it does by default, The recording is always very buggy and still-framed for the most part and crazy mixes of coloring. Some applications (that are in the repos) require compiz to run properly e.x. docky. Since compiz and gtk-recordMyDesktop are both in the repos, I do believe this qualifies as a bug.06:17
evilsushiyou make custom deb packages for your servers?06:18
blackxoredthat's why I'm better suited to leaving ubuntu when they finally switch to unity ;)06:18
robertzaccourblackxored, why not just use a different DE like gnome, xfce, kde, or a wm?06:18

fuzzybunny69yHey everyone! What is the best search to use with Ubuntu? For some reason whenever I search with Nautilus(using CTRL+F) it only searches my home folder.06:56
shcherbakGreen: Make sure you know chipset, i.e. raltek, most of them are supported.06:56
shcherbakfuzzybunny69y: find, man find06:57
Greenshcherbak: Thank you06:57
fuzzybunny69yshcherbak, yeah find it good I was wondering about a GUI one though06:57
kevdogmost wireless usbs work with Ubuntu however it really depends on the chipset contained in the device rather than by manufacture06:58
shcherbakfuzzybunny69y: um, gui, dunno.06:58

BIIIHey, I've got a Sony Ericsson W518a cell phone that only sort of syncs with Ubuntu.06:59
shcherbakStrife89: conkycore site had few scripts for battery, otherwise acpi07:00
BIIIIt shows up in Rhythmbox, but not in Computer or Media07:00
tomreynfuzzybunny69y: normally searching your home directory is sufficient. is there something special you are looking for?07:01
_jesse_fuzzybunny69y: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FindingFiles07:01
shcherbakBIII: are you using gammu/wammu?07:01
Strife89shcherbak: I installed acpi, but it had no obvious effect.07:01
BIIINot to my knowledge07:01
shcherbakStrife89: you need script to read from acpi07:01
tomreynfuzzybunny69y: you could run nautilus with sudo, as superuser, and search then. but this is also quite dangerous since you could, with the click of a wrong button, break your system07:02
_jesse_tomreyn: really? that seems strange that running as root would be necessary07:02
_jesse_I'm pretty sure you can change the flder it searches in07:02
shcherbakBIII: wammu is first to try with mobiles, there is suppoted handset list on their website.07:02
Ghastlytomreyn, been there :p07:02
toloykhanhello there07:03
BIIIIf you go to places --> search you can choose where you're searching07:03
BIIIIt's not as convenient as ctrl+f...07:03
toloykhanI have an iptables case07:03
tomreyn_jesse_: sure you can, just need to browse to the right directory. however, a restricted user cannot search in all places the superuser can.07:04
toloykhanI need an explanation for this line : $IPTABLES -A BAD_SITES -p tcp -m string --string "www.facebook.com" --algo kmp -j DROP07:04
tomreynGhastly: uh oh...07:04
BIIIshcherbak: Thanks, I'll go get that07:04
_jesse_tomreyn: true, but in most default installs regular users at least have list access for almost anything07:04
tomreyn_jesse_: right, good point07:05
toloykhanhello guys i need an explanation for this line of iptables: $IPTABLES -A BAD_SITES -p tcp -m string --string "www.facebook.com" --algo kmp -j DROP07:05
fuzzybunny69ytomreyn, yeah that is true but sometimes I want to search in just the folder im in but for some reason nautilus always just starts searching from the home folder07:06
shcherbaktoloykhan: man iptables, in short, this rule will drop connections from facebook07:06
SlieAny one here into developing for android?07:06
Ghastlyfuzzybunny69y, if your searching a single folder (not looking through sub dirs)07:06
fuzzybunny69yand then it displays Images Documents Source code and other things at the top to filter it down more07:06
Ghastlyyou can just type, and it will search07:06
toloykhanshcherbak , thanx for replay.. but what exactly the algo and kmp mean07:06

shcherbaktoloykhan: Select the pattern matching strategy. (bm = Boyer-Moore, kmp = Knuth-Pratt-Morris) from: http://linux.die.net/man/8/iptables07:08
tomreyntoloykhan: kmp is a string comparison algorithm, used to match a string against a packet in this case.07:09
fuzzybunny69yI am just not sure how to get nautilus to search the current folder I am in without searching the home folder. Like say if I wanted to find all the files in the current directory with the word php in it or something07:09
Slie_jesse_: Well it does have to do with Ubuntu:)07:09

jhattarabazhang, if the package has same name, but different version in two different repositories, you can also choose in synaptic which version to use and downgrade software09:39
bazhangjhattara, that's not the case with respect to PPA09:39
Blorg28lucagiove: no other way ?09:40
lucagioveBlorg28: don't know that's the low level way  :)09:40
Blorg28lucagiove: yeah I know but it would be easier for me to tell the person to click here and here and choose a folder, than edit an undev rules (find the hdd serial with lsusb etc lol) :) thanks anyway09:41
jhattarabazhang, so it's a bug with PPA specifically ?09:41
bazhangjhattara, you may be thinking of app "pinning"09:42
lucagioveBlorg28: don't know then.. would be useful as you said09:43
jhattarabazhang, can't remember what exactly i did, but recently i wanted to try a software version that wasn't in the standard repos, can't remember if i used PPA or another non-standard repo to upgrade, then when i found out that the newer version didn't work as expected, i just used synaptic to force version09:43
lucagioveBlorg28: for what I know the disk is always mounted in /media/"partitio label" right?09:43
Blorg28lucagiove: I think so09:44
Blorg28lucagiove: the thing is : I need the person to plug the drive, and then I want it to click on a bash script I made that will rsync his home09:44
bazhangjhattara, forcing version is not  a good decision as compared to purging the ppa and getting back on the official track09:45
Blorg28lucagiove: problem is : if the drive is not mounted in the same directory each time, it will fail09:45
=== zamba_ is now known as zamba
jhattarabazhang, might cause problems later on if the standard repos upgrade, right ?09:45

MegaHerzHi all. I have problems with my mouse pointer. It stops accepting clicks once per 2-3 minutes, then somehow it start working again, then fail again etc...09:47
MegaHerzWhere could be the problem?09:47
jhattarabazhang, depends on what you need and what you're doing, there are some stuff where your options are 1) build from source, 2) build a deb from source, 3) use PPA, in those i'd always use the option 3: PPA09:47
lucagioveBlorg28: I see09:48
rumpe1MegaHerz, i would test it on another usb-port, if its has a usb connector09:48
jhattarabazhang, but i can agree to using as little external repositories as possible09:48

ljsoftnetwhat does it mean if my processor has 1 core and 2 threads? i mean the intel atom N450?10:14
Jordan_UPhoebus: Ralink is an odd company, they often release open source drivers but the drivers are unstable and completely inapropriate for inclusion in the mainline kernel. They're getting better, but for current linux support I would stick to PCI wireless cards rather than USB and specifically Atheros and Intel cards.10:14
histoljsoftnet: 1 core with hyper threading probably would show up that way10:14
ljsoftnethisto: does it have the same, power with 2 cores?10:15
edwardteachPhoebus,  nearly all wifi cards  work well with ubuntu and linux, you need to find out the chip and driver if it will not plug and play!10:15

Pumpkin-Guest18482: you can see what you have installed from /var/log/apt/history.log. Going back versions is slightly trickier, I think you would need to find old .deb's and install them manually.

shaulaHi there, I am trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on virtualbox which is running again on ubuntu 10.10, when I boot the virtualbox from i386-desktop image it fails to install with ending on "busybox.. " screen. I checked the cd image's sha1sum which seem fine. What can be the problem can anyone guide?11:29
suigenerisiqpi np11:31
iqpishaula: perhaps there is a problem with mkinitcpio-busybox11:31
shaulaon busybox screen it says "(initramfs) Can not mount /dev/loop0 (cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs)...11:31
Attivismragazzai ilgiornalr.it è down11:31
iqpisuigeneris: how have you installed?11:31
shauladoes correct sha1sum guarantees that I do not have a defected image, should I redownload it?11:32
suigenerisiqpi I just inserted the CD in windows, I got a GUI installer, I filled in the details and hit Enter11:33
shaulaiqpi, what can I do to fix that, is it some problem with the image or the virtualbox, the virtualbox is the default one from ubuntu 10.10 repository11:33
iqpiI think i would redownload it, because perhaps the md5sum is correct, the download would be correct, but the cd image was wrong on the server.11:33
iqpishaula: my last message wasa for you11:34
iqpisuigeneris: have you installed grub?11:34
iqpishaula: if you redownload, and have the same error, we should check for another cause11:35
shaulaiqpi, I have downladed the image from "http://releases.ubuntu.com/"11:35
suigenerisiqpi ,how do I install grub? isn't it something wubi should do?11:36
Scott`it does11:36
Scott`actually it might not, just add ubuntu to the windows bootloader11:37
fedora_newbty arvind_khadri for the advice, fixed my problem. :)11:38
iqpishaula: i cannot open that url, i think its broken, try this other :  http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download11:38
arvind_khadrifedora_newb, np :)11:39
iqpisuigeneris: grub should install from wubi check it11:39
iqpisuigeneris: anyway, i have never used wubi, so i dont know how should it work, i recommend you to try to install ubuntu in your hard disk in a new partition, but if you don't know how to do it, read before some manuals11:40
shaulaiqpi, http://releases.ubuntu.com/  is working, maybe the quotations make it fail. I have checked md5sum, sh1sum, sh256sum of the image where all seems fine11:41
suigenerisiqpi I think I got it, the OS options were set not to show. that's in windows11:43
iqpishaula: ok, now it works, any way if the image you download was bad in the server, even if you downloaded it without errors, you will have a bad image because the image was wrong on the server, so the md5sum md239874sum will show you any errors because is the correct md5sum for an incorrect cd image, i dont know if I have explain myself11:44

miniuseri removed it "lirc" then reinstalled it ..the above happened11:54
iqpisuigeneris: to tdo that, there are many ways, I use to do the manual one (boot with the livecd disk) chek the partions you have (ls /dev/sd*) mount the root directory in a new folder, then chroot in that folder, and finally sudo grub-install, then you will have the loader11:54
suigenerisiqpi I fixed it by setting the OS options in windows to show11:56

llutzsre-su: you'll have to mount them all and check for contents if you don't know which one holds your /12:36
Pumpkin-gbjk: I don't know if the default changed or anything, but the obvious thing to do is check sshd_config for AllowAgentForwarding12:36
sre-sullutz: But, how did you come to options sdb6/sdb7 not others?12:36
Pumpkin-afaik the default is yes and always has been, but its worth checking12:36
gbjkPumpkin-: sshd is ... sshd, right. I haven't *touched* the server!12:36

gbjkOkay, so my issue is actually that keychain is not setting the environment variables.12:53
sre-sujrib: There is no mention of passphrase for encryption done during installation12:53
llutzWulfy: just ignore it12:53
sre-sujrib: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedPrivateDirectory#Live%20CD%20method%20of%20opening%20a%20encrypted%20home%20directory12:53
wildbation_: just boot with CD ~ mount the drive you need and backitup12:54
jribsre-su: no.  at the bottom there are links that tell you what to do12:54
Wulfyllutz,  okiedokie :)12:54
sre-sujrib: Link please12:54
jribsre-su: scroll to the bottom of what you just linked me to.  Anyway, basically, your login pass allows you to access the encryption pass. The procedure is explained in one the links at the bottom of the wiki page however12:55
ion_wildbat: yeah that's the point, I don't know how to do it ..I have the terminal open but I don't know the commands that I have to type...12:55
sre-sujrib: Are you talking about more info links?12:55

=== Guest48480 is now known as zhang_
jribsre-su: yes, though the section you just linked me to is probably sufficient as well12:55
wildbation_:  open the gnome file browser shall have your HD shown there ~12:56
jribsre-su: do you know what to do now?12:56
ion_wilbat: I doesn't12:57
cholericIn a new Ubuntu installation on a fairly new machine (but with a traditional HD, not an SSD), should I use ext3 or ext4?12:57
llutzcholeric: ext412:57
* gbjk suddenly realises that the issue is probably the WAY his xterm is being invoked!12:57
ion_wilbat: I know that I can mount it using the terminal12:57
sre-sujrib: I get these erros actually w/o asking for passphrase which is why I'm asking about passphrase for users who had encrypted /hom during installation - No directory, logging in with HOME=/ -su: cannot create temp file for here-document: No space left on device12:57
jribsre-su: "No space left on device"12:57
sre-sueven after apt-get clean12:58
wildbation_:  yes you can. try System -> Admin.. -> Disk Util..12:58
drt4923ion_: you can mount it in the terminal but you dont know how to back stuff up from the terminal?12:58
jribsre-su: there's no space left on the device.  Are you sure that's not the case?12:58
sre-sujrib:  That;s not the case. Thats' secondary. First issue is - No directory, logging in with HOME=/ <-- Why this?12:59
jribsre-su: fix the space issue first12:59
ion_drt4923: no I won't to  make the files appear on the desktop and then back it up ...12:59
sre-sujrib: Fix space issues where? I'm on liveCD13:00
ion_drt4923: *  want13:00
sre-sujrib: /mnt cleaned of folders not required. /var cleaned. archives cleaned. autoremove done apt-get clean done. Now what?13:00
jribsre-su: pastebin « df -h »13:01
ion_drt4923: I had done it before with a help but I forgot how to do it ...13:01
drt4923ion_: is it mounted?13:01
cholericllutz: thanks for the advice.13:01
ion_drt4923: no ..13:01
gbjkPumpkin-: Issue is that I was starting xterm the wrong way round. I need to recall how to run xterm so that it starts in my home dir. I *think* it's xterm -e 'cd $HOME;/bin/bash/'13:02
drt4923ion_: do you know what partition its on?13:02
sre-sujrib: Well, yes I see /mnt/home and /mnt Use% as 100. How to clean that?13:02
jribsre-su: make space, delete things I suppose13:03
sre-sujrib: delete things in /mnt/home?13:03
jribsre-su: sure13:03
sre-suThat's wierd13:03
ion_drt4923: well, I do have just one OS running ...ext3 I guess...13:03
medflyhow do I enable wireless?13:03
ibrahimhow do i stop having to authenticate with  a password every time i leave my pc for what ever length of time?13:04
jribsre-su: why weird?13:04
gbjkSo frustrating. alt+f2 and run xterm -e 'cd $HOME;/bin/bash' and my env contains the ssh-agent. Run that from shortcut and it doesn't.13:04
wildbation_: did you try mounting it with Disk Util. yet?13:04
rumpe1ibrahim, deactivate/remove screensaver(?)13:04
ethanolibrahim, system -> screensaver -> uncheck lock screen?13:04
=== MortenTemp is now known as Morten_
rumpe1ibrahim, ah... or deactivate lock ^^13:05
ethanolAssuming it is checked.13:05
ion_wildbat: that's it the point I don't know how to do it ...13:05
jribgbjk: how do you start ssh-agent?13:05
ibrahimthanks guys i gotta say i am now a ubuntu convert13:05
ion_wildbat: I know that I have to type sudo -i and the next steps I don't know ...13:05
drt4923ion_: try with the gui interfaces wildbat is suggesting first, i dont mind trying over ssh if you gave me access13:06
sre-sujrib: /mnt/home contains home directory which only contains two files for .desktop and .txt created after encryption. For me to be able to deleted files from mounted /home partition I need to decrypt it first. Secondly, /mnt is / partition. What ever update/upgrade/install must have taken space in var or archives are cleared. What else do you expect?13:06
wildbation_:  just select then drive and  partition -> click Mount  button13:06
jribsre-su: all I know is something needs space and you don't have it because a partition is full13:06
sre-sujrib: Which partiton is full and what needs space is exactly what I want to know13:07
LikesFruitany idea what this error means, i am trying to install grub " cannot find a GRUB drive for /dev/sda5.  Check your device.map."13:07
sre-sujrib: http://pastebin.com/98S9B7CV13:08
jribsre-su: well since there are only two choices and it sounds like it's easier to make space on / than on the partition for /home, I would try making space on the partition for / first13:08
gbjkjrib: Sorry, it's run via keychain .ssh/id_dsa in .bashrc13:08
jribgbjk: probably put it in your ~/.profile instead13:08
rascal999where is the kernel? I would like to use it in a vm13:08
sre-suWhat all in / of LiveCD mounted as /mnt needs cleaning? I'm not able to make out now ...13:09
sre-sujrib: ^^13:09
jribsre-su: nothing needs cleaning, you just need to free up some space13:09
gbjkOh. My profile isn't being run ....13:09
sre-susre-su shrugs13:10
* ibrahim nods13:10
gbjkjrib: This *isn't* a login shell, though.13:10
gbjkNote: The keychain is being RUN. The vars just aren't in env if it's run through shortcut.13:11
jribgbjk: how do you login?13:11
ion_wilbat: I can't ...13:11
gbjkjrib: Recap on issue: If you run xterm -e 'cd $HOME;/bin/bash' from alt-f2, then keychain runs and env| grep SSH has ssh vars13:11
jribgbjk: I understand, but how do you login?13:12
wildbation_: any error msgs?13:12
gbjkHOWEVER, the issue is that a keyboard shortcut that runs the SAME command, does run keychain, but doesn't have vars.13:12
gbjkjrib: It's a desktop. I login using ... whatever the login prompt is.13:12
jribgbjk: using ~/.profile should work and I don't see why you are running "cd $HOME; /bin/bash".  When you run xterm, it should automatically run your shell13:12
wildbation_: you may wanna click the Check filesystem button ~ if there is errors in filesystem that prevent you from mounting13:13
gbjkjrib: Because running it from keyboard shortcut starts in / and I want ~.13:13
ion_wildbad: I can't put it on the pastbin for you ...13:13
jribsre-su: obviously we could try to understand /why/ it needs space and avoid it.  But it seems like it would be much easier to just free up some space.13:13
jribgbjk: that's mighty weird13:13
sre-sujrib: But, where?13:13
jribsre-su: either in sdb6 or sdb713:14
sre-sujrib: That is what I'm not able to make out, where in mounted sdb6/sdb7. There is a command which tells about usage right?13:14
gbjkjrib: I know! And it's new.13:15
jribgbjk: after you've transferred stuff over to ~/.profile, we can discuss the other issue (xterm starting in /)13:15
jribsre-su: it doesn't matter where, anywhere13:15
ion_wildbad: http://paste.ubuntu.com/567649/13:15
sre-sujrib: anywhere in / root?13:15
jribsre-su: that's one of the two possibilities, y.es13:15
gbjkjrib: I've done that. I logged out and back in. I removed any confusion. I run `xterm` at alt-f2 and I have SSH env vars. I run a keybaord shortcut that runs xterm and I don't.13:15
jribsre-su: the complaint is just that the device is full, so make it not full13:16
jribgbjk: how do you create the keyboard shortcut?13:16
gbjkjrib: system menu, preferences.13:16
Hans_Henrikhow can i make a program run automatically on each startup?13:17

llutzHans_Henrik: it just calls the script and continues.13:21
jribgbjk: sorry (no highlight = me blind).  But there is a workaround there.  You could also use something like xbindkeys instead.  It's a bug and has to be sorted out upstream13:21

When I visit a page that includes pear-mail immediately after booting the server, I get a php deprecation warning, despite having disabled deprecation warnings.

veovis_muaddibJetBoyJetGirl: If you're good with vim or emacs chances are you will get things done on them a lot faster than with a GUI, but if you don't want to spend the effort to learn them then it's better to stick with a GUI14:11

Jimi_Neutralany idea where i can go14:12
PiciJimi_Neutral: ##linux would be a good start.14:12
qubozikwedo: OK for now... you can probably reboot and during boot up the first thing you will see is the boot loader grub. If you go into that you can select your old kernel to boot from and your hardware might work14:12
JetBoyJetGirlThanks veovis14:12
Jimi_Neutralok ty14:12

Picisosaited: Right, but if you're installing all of the build dependencies from the repositories anyway, why not just use the apt-get command to find and install them automagically?14:23

Odaymsee the number and fg it varun15:03
Odaymhmm, i think you can try aptitude there pibloes2 because i heard that it takes care of dependencies better than apt-get15:03
llutzpibloes2: sudo growisofs -Z /dev/sr0=/path/to/foo.iso15:04
Odaymbut i have no idea about aptitude pibloes2, all i know is its better with dependencies, llutz  knows more15:04

varunOdaym:So for this ---1704 ?        Sl     0:11 /media/Yojimbo/eclipse 2010/eclipse.- I try fg 1704 and it says  no such job15:05
Odaymthen ps again, varun, maybe it was assigned a different number since you last saw15:05
ethanolHow can I assign applications a default workspace? I googled and found devilspie. But it seems from 2007. Did Ubuntu build this is by now, or should I install a tool from 2007?15:05

varunOdaym:Nope the ps is the same for all the times15:05

Zoffix_Hello. Once again, I'm stuck with a problem..  I'm running this: sudo mount //b-webtest-dt/transfer /home/pevstrat/Desktop/ZTransfer/ -t cifs -o user=user,pass=pass  It works, but the share is owned by the root and not the user I'm using. Due to that, I can't copy any files over into the share. How I go around this? It used to work fine in Gutsy >:|15:08
Odaymthe forum says fg also, varun15:08
Odaymif you want to use process name, varun, prefix it with '%'15:09
Odaymvarun, forum says, if the process is sleeping, check whether there is any wait command in the script, check why it is waiting if there is any wait... don't think the process will go into sleep without any wait15:09

ohziemh22mk: If you're using the NAT option for the VM, you won't get the server's IP address15:19
