ActionParsnipalmoxarife: change the cron. If it's cron'd as your user run: crontab -e   if its as root use: sudo crontab -e00:04
ActionParsnipalmoxarife: or you can use gnome-schedule for a gui (run with gksudo for root crons)00:05

lahwranI recently updated my system. apparently this included a nm-applet update. since then, the tooltip that tells me wireless strength on nm-applet has stopped working (it just doesn't show up). anyone have any ideas how I would troubleshoot this?01:17
mnainesagreiman, how do you do a complete uninstall through the command line?01:17
=== taranto__ is now known as taranto
agreimannA complete uninstall?01:17
agreimannFrom which operating system?01:18
mnainesagreiman, like completely remove an app and all its components from Ubuntu01:18
strav`Nicolas_Leonidas: everything you installed with apt01:18
agreimannapt-get remove program_name, where program_name is the program you want to uninstall.01:18
bc81strav`: i'm currently using rhythmbox with a similar setup as you, and have no latency problems, tried it out yet?01:18
spark_pareli I do not whant to mess up my system :/01:18
strav`Nicolas_Leonidas: you can also try dpkg-query which is neat on the cmd line.01:18
=== Anthraxium is now known as Anthraxium|Detac
mnainesagreiman, next question:  What's the solution to a kernel panic caused by a bad kernel update or a memory allocation error?01:19
zzingIs there such thing as a 'mini' cd instead of the 700mb variety?01:19
agreimannOr, you can open Synaptic, Quick Find the program you want to remove, right-click it, and click "Completely remove package."01:19
strav`bc81: nope, I tried audacious with different buffer settings and can't seem to get rid of glitches now and then.01:19
Nicolas_Leonidasstrav`: thanks01:19
agreimannmnaines: Can you revert to the last kernel from grub?01:19
immyworked like a charm01:19
immythx dageek01:19
mnainesagreiman, yes.01:19
strav`bc81: I'll give rythmbox a try.01:19
lahwrananyone on the nm-applet tooltip problem?01:20
spark_pareli I did not tryed because it try to boot on both card01:20
bc81strav`: then again, i'm relatively close to my router, so that may be why i experience no latency problems.  only with 720p video streaming over samba01:20
agreimannlahwran: You might need to reinstall the notification service with the shell.01:20
strav`bc81: ok01:20
agreimannAnyone how if hyperlinks can be used in a zenity dialog?01:21
lahwranagreimann: well the notification daemon works fine with it, shows me popups just fine, it just doesn't show me the status *tooltip* that indicates signal strength01:21
bc81strav`: also, gconf-editor apps >> ryhthmbox >> player, there is a network_buffer_size setting.  i think you'll be quite happy with rythmbox :)01:21
strav`bc81: kinda odd, I don't seem to have any latency for 720p videos.01:21
jigynetanyone here play dark orbit?01:21
induzwhy I can not change my display monitor's resolution?? on KuBuntu Lucid01:22
agreimannlahwran: Ah. What desktop environment do you use?01:22
induzit is set to too high01:22
parelispark_: oh, well then i'm not sure. installed ubuntu about a week ago for my first time, and i only know so much.. post your problem on ubuntuforums and search your query on google.01:22
bc81strav`: i should probably look into vlc settings to increase buffer size..forgot aobut that one01:22
agreimannlahwran: If it's a fresh Ubuntu install, it'd be GNOME.01:22
strav`bc81: although it would have been nice to have this option in rythmbox itself. Have you tried mpd btw?01:22
lahwranagreimann: gnome. I use the standard applets01:22
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, going to try it now, I got distracted by watching the earthquake reports on tv01:22
bc81strav`: never heard of it until now01:23
agreimannlahwran: OK. Can you try to delete your top panel, rebuild it, and explain what happens then?01:23
jigynetyea i know01:23
jigynetwill there be more tho?01:23
lahwranagreimann: purpose being? i've heavily customized my panels and would prefer not to delete them. it'd actually be the bottom panel with the indicators.01:23
agreimanninduz: Edit the xorg.conf file. Check /etc/X11 and Ubuntu support for options with this.01:24
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, should I add a sleep command before each one?01:24
agreimannlahwran: Your applets are on the bottom of the screen?01:24
xtbgodRecommend me a p2p client?01:24
agreimannlahwran: Resetting the panel should assist in fixing the tooltip problem.01:25
lahwranagreimann: the indicator applet is.01:25

bc81strav`: i set it to highest, restarted vlc, tried a 720p video stream, but it still hangs.  might be because it's pulling the file off a usb external drive over samba through wifi lol.  i'll check out some of those advanced settings though01:34

mattmattehThis is most likely a transient problem, please try again later."01:34
strav`bc81: ah there, in input/codecs in the advanced settings, if you expand access modules you can select alsa and then enter a numeric value in ms for the cache.01:35
jigynetbc81, try 1500 mtu and turn off traffic controls..max any cache available..enable media mode?01:35
strav`bc81: this of course is for audio... for video I don't remember if I tweaked anything.01:35
Nicolas_LeonidasI don't know why this file is being created every time I restart /etc/init.d/.svnserve.swo01:36

Nicolas_LeonidasI'm trying to get rid of all traits of svn01:36
aeon-ltdSolm:  i don't think so01:37

Xeon06Hey folks. If I precede a script with "#!/bin/bash" and call it foo, and I just run "foo" from the same directory, it should work, right?01:39
iszakbosyak, you've installed catalyst control center?01:40
bosyakit's seems to work... yes01:40
bosyakmouse is working01:40
Jordan_UXeon06: No.01:40
Xeon06Jordan_U: What am I doing wrong?01:40
iszakso you went into the catalyst control center -> display manager -> select the monitor -> multi display taba nd set it to multi-display desktop with display(s) x01:40
iszakbosyak, ^01:40
Cpudan80Xeon06: If you chmod it so it's executable and do ./foo01:40
Cpudan80Xeon06: then it will execute the stuff in the bash script01:41
mickster04iszak: so you need a cli tool that can edit files byte by byte so wait around seeif anyone knows of one, otherwise googling that may also help?01:41
jigynetsoo, hmm01:41
Jordan_UXeon06: It needs to be executable and you need to run "./foo". You can only use the program name alone for programs in $PATH.01:41
ActionParsnipXeon06: you will need to chmod +x filename    for it to work, but yes01:41
Xeon06Jordan_U: Cpudan80: ActionParsnip Thanks!01:41

induzwhy I can not change my display/monitor settings on Kubuntu/lucid KDE?01:41
iszakmickster04, well I just need to resave them all in a common format.01:41
ActionParsnipinduz: what video chip?01:42
induzI tried to change the dpi from highest to lower and the monitor goes black...01:42
bosyakiszak: I don't want share my desktop on two monitors. I want two separate desktops... is it possible?01:42
mickster04iszak: are they in a proer format now? like png? and you want to change then to jpg? cos that's again slightly different?01:42
induzits integrated intel chip01:42
induzit works fine on Gnome01:42
induznow with the highest dpi set the dispaly is fudgy01:43
strav`bosyak: it's possible but a little more involved.01:43
Jordan_Uiszak: You can use the "convert" command from imagemagic.01:43
bc81strav`: thanks again, no more 720p laggage!  not sure which setting fixed it (i set all cache possiblities to 5000).  now i don't have to copy the files here to watch them01:43
iszakJordan_U, yeah just found that01:43
bc81strav`: any luck with rhythmbox?01:43
strav`bosyak: there are some good tutorials about this but the last time I did this, you could play with xorg.conf now things have changed.01:43
tensorpuddingcan one use application indicators with vala?01:44
iszakbosyak, then change the multi-display setting to single display desktop (multi-desktop) in the same area in catalyst control panel.01:44
iszakbosyak, but that said you won't be able to drag between them IIRC.01:44
tensorpuddingand if so, what library do you need01:44
bosyakiszak: how to run something on second monitor? or how to use it?01:44
iszakbosyak, you move your mouse into the second monitor and thus desktop and run something.. simple01:45
iszakand it shouldn't conflict with the other one.01:45
bosyakstrav`: are Ati card good? or Nvidia have better support?01:45
strav`bc81: my nas is currently down (gotta buy new hds), but I'll try it later - meanwhile perhaps I'll see if I cannot get more juice out of vlc. I really like using one good application for all my media.01:45
induzI go to k--computer..system settings--display/monitor, it ios set to 1280x1024[auto], i want it to change it to1152x86401:45
iszakbosyak, I heard Nvidia have better support01:45
induzhow can i achieve that01:45
strav`bosyak: you should be able to do it with both. Of course nvidia is always less a pain.01:46
mickster04induz: you can do that in gnome?01:46
bc81strav`: theres also a ton of plugins in vlc, never messed with them myself.  you might find something of use in there01:46

induzI am stuck01:47
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, rebooted 4 times and the commands only worked once01:47
induznow the fonts are bleeding01:48

drexlhello, long question here about wi-fi driver and lubuntu  http://paste.ubuntu.com/570347/02:05
ahaziah77bc81, cool deal, command worked02:05
coz_marcagio,  I have never tried this but  when the cd boots to the keyboard logo at the bottom hit "enter" to get to grub menu  then hit "e"  and edit the kernal stanza  with   nomodeset  just before quiet splash   then boot from there   ,,, I have no idea if that will help though02:05

marcagiomattmatteh, I have the display, it's showing... but the screen is scrolling fast I can't see what i'm doing, but i do see the mouse and everything... I want to watch movies that are stored on another pc on my TV02:06
mattmattehcoz_: console is hardly useable with s video02:06
J697bc81, I already tried that02:06
hescorww: thanks, understandable.  But I have not been asked to upgrade this machine, only to ascertain if it is still running.  WOuld any of these zabbix-agents work on that old box?02:06
coz_mattmatteh,  ah   ok   as I said I have no experience with it02:06
J697bc81, I pressed don't sleep or whatever after 15 minutes, and it still does02:07
send_from_shellI want to send files from shell to another website02:07
send_from_shellhow can I do it02:07
mattmattehcoz_: kinda readable, way better than composite02:07
coz_mattmatteh,  ok .. I will try to keep that in mind02:07
marcagiocoz_ will try02:07
mattmattehmarcagio: i would suggest fidning a computer display to do the install02:07
bc81J697: also check your screensaver settings02:07
rwwhesco: If there's a zabbix-agent package in feisty's repositories, ubottu's EOLUpgrades link says how to get access to those repositories (which have been moved to an archive server). If not, we don't support mixing different versions' packages here.02:08

send_from_shellrww ?02:11
crlcan81especially hidden files with the .*filename*02:11

mattmattehdanub: do you have games installed ?02:12
danub3.8 gigs in /usr/lib, and 4.8 in /usr/share/02:12

danubmattmatteh: yeah, thats why im doing some housecleaning ;)02:13
rwwhesco: You're welcome. Bear in mind that those repositories are frozen in the state they were in when feisty went EOL, so as I said, you're missing security updates.02:13
mattmattehdanub: thats not the correct way to clean02:13
recoil_bc81: thanks02:13
crlcan81Is there any way of expanding your mounted drive's swap space/filesystem space to empty space right beside it without loading liveCD and running gparted?02:14
mattmattehcrlcan81: how much ram do you have ?02:14
crlcan814 gigs.02:14
danubyeah, looks like ill have to go thru synaptic to clean some stuff up02:14
mattmattehcrlcan81: and thats not enough that you need swap ?02:15
crlcan81If you can learn terminal commands, use sudo apt-get ubuntu-tweak02:15
ActionParsnipcrlcan81: as long as the partition is unmounted, you can manipulate it02:15
bc81recoil_: i just press and hold ctrl+shift, then type u2299 then let go of ctrl+shift and get ⊙02:15
crlcan81It's not that, I have free space on the drive I want to recover.02:15
crlcan81the only way of doing it is via livecd then, so the drive isn't mounted.02:16
crlcan81Because this is the drive currently being ran.02:16
recoil_bc81 so???02:16
mattmattehcrlcan81: oh.  i am not a fan or resizeing, i usually back up, repartition, restore.  infact i am doing that now.  if i could only update ubuntu02:16
crlcan81Well this is from an old install that wasn't properly finished.02:17

crlcan81So I finally was able to fix it.02:17
recoil_bc81: uhm no1 asked that me neither.. xD02:17
bc81recoil_: so there are some settings in System >> Preferences >> Keyboard >> Layouts >> Options >> Alt/Win Key Behavior02:17
recoil_i dont want this to know i never aked that02:18
bc81recoil_: sorry, got your name mixed up with xtbgod02:18
crlcan81In fact I'm about to run live CD now to resize.02:19
clarkrenteboa noite, amigos!02:20
crlcan81So you can, in fact, expand your filesystem's partition once the freespace has been moved between swap and filesystem? Or can it be incorporated with other keystrokes?02:20
gogudaNevermind. Stupid me. I think it might be because I don't have some newlib files installed.02:20
crlcan81I don't know all of gparted's commands, or any other program that does that.02:20
xtbgodbc81, i read what u said lemme check02:20
ShapeShifter499what are some ways of running commands at boot as root?02:21
jukeloxSo I just upgraded from Hardy to Lucid and the one thing I cannot get installed is libmtp8. dpkg -d=2000 isn't giving me any information at all and none of the bug reports on this topic seem to be resolved.02:22
LoshkiShapeShifter499: you can put commands into /etc/rc.local and they will be run at boot as root, automatically....02:23
recoil_bc81: works perfectly thank you :D02:23
jukeloxDoes anyone have any experience getting libmtp8 installed on Lucid? Amarok and rhythmbox depend on it.02:23
ShapeShifter499Loshki, rc.local isn't reliable for me, doesn't run commands most of the time02:23

canthus13Any idea why maverick would just randomly go blindingly white for a second and then back to normal?02:44
jordan_so normally when i need to install something, i compile the driver and stuff myself02:44

hypatiajordan_: normally the drivers are just in the kernel, but for some wifi cards and a few other thigns, you end up needing to build them yourself02:45
theperfecttacogreen_ i think compaq uses atheros02:45
jordan_back in the terminal the process has finished02:45
hypatiajordan_: also, plese try mentioning my name (hit tab to complete it) so your messages stick out for me02:45

jordan_Hypatia, gotcha02:46

sharebc81: k tks02:46
jordan_how do i get them to stick to u02:46
mickster04infox: you probably don't wanto install grub there, unless your pc boots to it first?02:46
hypatiainfox: try picking the third drive to boot first in the bios02:47
theperfecttacogreen_: my problem was that there was a miscommunication between the wireless card and the system - the card was telling the system that it was hard disabled when it actually wasn't02:47
coz_njero,  try  # dbox202:47
Jordan_Uinfox: Are you sure that you're booting from /dev/sdc? What exactly does happen when you try to boot?02:47

swazzyanyone know's any website's where i can get icons from?02:59
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, I think you're going to need the sleep commands, try putting sleep 10 at the beginning and sleep 5 after each command it's not ideal but I think you should be able to get it to work02:59
=== Guest68507 is now known as PatSter21
green_theperfecttaco: what is somthing (command) you would do if your wireless activation button was to break?02:59
alakhiai would like to avoid re-encoding the video to do this. Suggestions?02:59
recoil_swazzy: gnome-look.org02:59
theperfecttacogreen_: if you have a disable/enable radio button on your keyboard - type "rfkill list" in terminal, hit your radio button and type the command again and see if there's a change in the output02:59
theperfecttacogreen_: do you mean hardware button or a software button?03:00

g_0_0have you got the correct driver for your soundcard?03:01
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, yes03:01
green_theperfecttaco: the physical button03:01
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, is it an old soundcard, I've only come across this problem with old machines?03:01
theperfecttacogreen_: sudo lshw -enable <wireless interface> is the terminal command equivalent to the physical button03:02

green_theperfecttaco: the rfkill list" wouldnt do anything... just would get the same wifi is disabled by hardware button.03:04
ramonim having problems with wifi: whenever the laptop goes on battery power, the wifi gets really really slow.03:04
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, this problem had showed up a few months back when I used pulseaudio to do something, I accidentally muted something and ever since my computer allways booted with the Speaker channel muted03:04
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, and prior to that you had no problem?03:05
green_theperfecttaco: for sure man thank you for all your help btw you got the best Nick name i've seen03:05
ohsixramon: tha'ts the wifi going into power saving mode; what chipset? you need to use iwpriv to disable power saving on broadcoam chips with the wl driver, iw should work for all the open source drivers03:05

miketomdoolalakhia: what video format is it currently in?03:05
ActionParsnipramon: are there any bugs logged?03:06
alakhiamiketomdool: i think the canon videocam uses h264 compression03:06
mickster04alakhia: i don't think that is at all possible? you still have to stitch the sound and video back together again?03:06
ramonohsix: how do i do that?03:07

ShapeShifter499g_0_0, iirc I switched the output to headphone only in pulseaudio, and then this issue arose03:07
ramonActionParsnip:how do i check for bugs?03:07
alakhiamickster04: i was hoping i could at least trim without reencoding03:07
mickster04alakhia: I assume you could mute it?03:07
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, for a reason?03:07
alakhiamickster04: perhaps replacing the audio would not be that easy ... and i could do that last03:07
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, can you change it back again?03:07
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, I did change it back03:08
alakhiamickster04: right, or just drop the audio without re-encoding03:08
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, and I did it so sound wouldn't play durring a remote control session03:08
mickster04alakhia: try it03:08
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, sound wouldn't play at home03:08
g_0_0ok do as I described above, comment out  the lines in rc.local by placing a # at the beginning of each line03:08

g_0_0Roasted, have you still not got rhythmbox and your sansa to work?03:41
Roastedits a piece of garbage03:42
RoastedI got it to work on about 3 occasions03:42
g_0_0which sansa is it?03:42
Roastedbut it's been the most inconsistent piece of garbage ever03:42
Roastedrhythmbox is like that part time punk employee at burger king who only shows up to work half of the time03:42
Roastedoh hi, I see your music03:42
Jordan_Ukj6lxu: Does it only happen with bittorrent or does it also happen with other downloads (like http)?03:42

g_0_0have you got the mtp plugin enabled in rhythmbox?03:42
Roastedyes, but I'm not even using MTP03:42

ShapeShifter499g_0_0, it still muted03:52
=== bilios is now known as mr_mojo_risin
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, well not muted but it comes up with the sound turned all the way down in alsamixer03:52
DiamondciteRoasted: Do you still have one of those working playlists around to compare them with to see what is different? (it doens't help that I don't use rythmbox...)03:52
RoastedDiamondcite, yes, theres 2 playlists on the device itself.03:52
RoastedDiamondcite, whats the point tho? I dont want to create playlists ON the device. I want to create them in a program because its much more efficient03:53
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, was the sound down when you rebooted, you could try adjusting the sound to the required volume and rebooting03:53

RiobeHello all. :) I'm looking to switch to Linux and my main time waster will be some Java programming. Is Ubuntu a distro that's well suited for this goal?03:53
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, yes, and I have03:53
NitrohaxRiobe, yes03:53
Roastedg_0_0, I saw that I should create an EMPTY file named that, but never with the contens like that03:53
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, it won't save my changes03:53
g_0_0ShapeShifter499, ok let me think about that03:54
DiamondciteRoasted: Well I'm curious as to how it's writting the file link.. maybe it is now writting /home/roasted/Desktop/music/01-Hello_World.mp3 instead of 01-Hello_World.mp3 ?03:54
* Sifo Hello all03:54
NitrohaxRiobe, how are you going to install it?03:54
RiobeNitrohax: Probably do a live boot for a day or so to get the feel of it then reformat my machine and make it the only OS.03:55
ActionParsnipDiamondcite: you can make playlists of folder contents using ls, as well as the dir command in windows03:55
DiamondciteActionParsnip: I am mainly trying to figure out why Roasted's playlist is no longer working as desired.03:55
NitrohaxRiobe, that will work but you can do a WUBI install and have a perm. and not change the file structure of your partition03:56
ActionParsnipDiamondcite: depends how the device reads and/or makes playlists03:56
RoastedDiamondcite, the playlist works. rhythmbox just doesnt detect any music on the device.03:56
whitefireHelp me about Hybrid Graphics with switcheroo. I'm using acer aspire 5745G03:56
RoastedDiamondcite, once I can get rhythmbox working as, you know, a normal music program, I can carry on with my playlist creations03:56
ActionParsnipRoasted: try this:  cd /folder/of/songs; ls *.mp3 > ./playlist.m3u03:56
DiamondciteRoasted: And the only requirement is to have to look else where for music?03:56

RiobeNitrohax: I broke my filesystem into two partitions when I installed Windows, and I'd like to get back down to 1. I haven't heard of WIBI install yet, so I'm not sure if I can change partitioning with that kind of install.03:57
ActionParsnipRoasted: copy /folder/of/songs to the device then see if playlist.m3u exists/works03:57
RoastedDiamondcite, if I can have a program that *works* and can make and create playlists, I'd be happy. But besides banshee, there are none I have found on linux. But! Banshee, when I create playulists, it doesnt "save" to the device. If I go to the sansa, banshee playlists come up empty. only rhythmbox playlists work.03:57
NitrohaxRiobe, you wouldn't need to change it03:57
RoastedHence my insane frustration.03:57
RoastedActionParsnip, the playlist works...03:57
RoastedActionParsnip, my issue is getting rhythmbox to detect the music.03:57
RoastedIt says importing 0/0, when there are over a thousand songs on the thing.03:58
RiobeNitrohax: Methinks I should figure out what a WUBI install is. To scholar Gugle!03:58
ActionParsnipRoasted: i dont use rhythmnbox so I'm not much help here. I always manually make them using ls03:58

YohaI'm having a problem with this network install; I've got an old machine booting with pxe; The installer wont download files off of my lan server (I have the iso mounted in /ubuntu) ... in the install debug its because it can't access the md5 sums from a release site.  Anyone have any suggestions on how I can complete this install?  (Btw, no cd drive, won't boot off of USB)04:02
rwwjuabn: no. Virtualbox guests run inside a virtualized environment. Wubi installs run on the actual hardware, without a VM between them, but installs to a loopback filesystem instead of a normal partition.04:02
RoastedDiamondcite, there is one thing that strikes me as odd.04:02
mickster04whitefire: sudo !! to run the last ocmmand as sudo04:02
Nitrohaxjuabn, kinda, wubi installs ubuntu on the windows partition. it has a boot loader and if you don't like it go to add/remove programs and remove it04:03
Aikaranyone recommend a panel applet for managing volume that works with the base audio drivers and not pulseaudio? had to uninstall pulseaudio cause it distorts sound04:03

MichaelDeatonHello does anyone here know how to install FlightGear on Ubuntu 10.10?04:04
ActionParsnip!lamp | scottnyc04:04
ubottuscottnyc: LAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)04:04
NitrohaxRiobe, just incase you don't like it. but you want it nuked full install it, why partition. back your music and videos up thouhg. LOL04:04
RoastedDiamondcite, I used the format tool because of another issue I was having with it.04:04
RoastedDiamondcite, but then rhythmbox took a bomb after tha.04:04
ActionParsnipMichaelDeaton: its in the playdeb ppa04:04
RoastedDiamondcite, I flahsed the thing to the latest firmware, etc. I just have no clue. I'm so close to buying a new one, but that's a ridiculous answer.04:04
MichaelDeatonI tried installing it and it said, "flightgear:  Depends: libalut0 (>=1.1.0-1) but it is not installable  Depends: libopenscenegraph65 (>=2.8.3) but it is not installable  Depends: libopenthreads13 (>=2.8.3) but it is not installable  Depends: libplib1 (>=1.8.5-1) but it is not installable  Depends: simgear2.0.0 but it is not going to be installed  "04:05
DiamondciteRoasted: Maybe that numbered partition is a ghost? Have you tried doing "ls /media/1234-5678" while it's mounted?04:05
RiobeNitrohax: Heheh, yeah, that I will be doing. I have a spare tower I can move stuff over to temporarily.04:05
RoastedDiamondcite, when the thing is plugged in MCP mode or whatever it is, yes it has a directory there.04:06
NitrohaxRiobe, use one of those all in one hd readers for usb. I have a ide and a sata hot swap port. But i fix to many computers04:06
ActionParsnipMichaelDeaton: then you need deb files or a reop with those files to satisfy deps04:06
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, ok rebooting04:06

Hellz_Bellzdo the ubuntu source repos contain unmodified source code or is it optimised for ubuntu spicifically?04:06

Jordan_Ugmachine_24: What is your end goal (why do you want to "clone" the drive)?05:18
gmachine_24JeffCBR, good point. I can probably use a live distro and gparted and that should do it.05:18
Jordan_Unroy1: parted itself gives descriptive error messages which should tell you exactly what is wrong with the partition table.05:18
gmachine_24I mean I can shrink the partion(s)05:19

Murphantwhen I press ctrl-alt-f6, it should bring me to a new command line session login, right?05:27
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, I seemed to have fixed my problem by putting the following command into startup applications ---->  "alsactl init"05:27
bastidraZorandy_: install the package then reboot05:27
StarminnMurphant: "CTRL+ALT+F1 -> F6" are command lines. CTRL+ALT+F7 is the GUI.05:27
gmachine_24Lancelot, packages dl via apt-get are placed in the /var/cache/apt/archives directory05:27
Jordan_Unroy1: Palimpsest is included in recent Ubuntu LiveCDs, but I highly recommend figuring out what is wrong with your partition table before trying to modify it further.05:27
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, this way it automatically sets up my sound and everything and I don't have to do anything05:27

esiriruffdog i did ask many forum my shutdown issue but cant correct yet, i will sent a report thanks again :)05:31
gmachine_24Lancelot, these are debian packages05:31
MurphantI'm thinking it's not a video driver issue since I'm working in CLI, could it be a monitor problem?05:31
nroy1Jordan_U: honestly, there ARE some bad sectors in both the disks, but i have managed to keep those areas in the free (unpartitioned) zone. And it seems some drives have wrong info on start/end of sectors/cyllinders. I hope manually adjusting them via a good partition manager like disk-uti will fix it. but CAN i use disk utility via boot cd... it is not available on solaris.05:31
bastidraZorandy_: what version of xubuntu are you using?05:31
gmachine_24Lancelot, you probably have other packages or software dl that could still be in the compressed version if you did not delete the dl file after installation.05:32
ShapeShifter499g_0_0, thanks for your help anyways05:32
Checkmatehi, I recently installed ubuntu server and I want to install an irc bot. I notice an user group called 'irc' in Ubuntu, what does it do may I ask?05:32

gmachine_24There is a program or utility that will list major files for you............ but it escapes me at the moment.05:32
Jordan_Ucrlcan81: GRUB2 has theming capability as well. I highly recommend using that instead of BURG (which doesn't appear to be maintained anymore and when it was was a one man fork).05:32
gmachine_24Lancelot, if you know where you dl them, you just rm them05:32
crlcan81ahh would have been nice for the websites to say that :(05:33
Lancelotgmachine_24, the disk usage analyzer?05:33
gmachine_24you go to the directory and do sudo apt-get rm <filenametoremove>05:33
andy_bastidraZor. Good question. Checking...05:33
gmachine_24Lancelot, I think that might be more of a global shapshot but give it a try.05:33
ActionParsnipgmachine_24: why is apt-get needed for folder removal??05:33
Jordan_Unroy1: Yes you can use palimpsest from an Ubuntu 10.10 liveCD. But please pastebin the output of "sudo parted -l" before you do so.05:33

ubottuLancelot albert: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)05:35
Librarat I was trying to set up dual displays earlier and have managed to botch my ubuntu install entirely -- x will no longer start at all, and I can't get failsafe to load either (it crashes with an error saying no suitable driver found, and no vesa either).  The best I get is a command prompt.. how do I get X back?  I was googling for a fix and ruan an apt-get purge xserver-xorg and then apt-get install xserver-xorg ... which now lead05:35
Librarats me to the no driver found... :s  What do I need to do to get Xserver back?05:35
esiriActionParsnip i am used ubuntu 10.04 i have shutdown about that05:35
rtz1 i have two ISP ie (first gateway) ( second gateway) and i have dhcp  for my clients... i want half of my clients ( to go out thru 1st gateway and my second half (192.168.128/25) to go thru second gateway05:35
Lancelotgmachine_24, it lists each directory, and then a breakdown of the percentage of the current directory space, and it's actual size05:35
esirialbert u wanna see /etc/modules/?05:35
rtz1ubuntu 10,.10 sry05:35
lightadoes someone here can link me to a good usbcreator for windows ? (base os linux, target win2k)05:36
albertthis can help you shutdown05:36
gmachine_24ActionParsnip, when you dl a debian package I believe it comes with permissions that only allow the su to ex, read, write, etc.05:36
LancelotJordan_U, let me give this a try05:36
gmachine_24ActionParsnip, if you change the permissions to give users free reign, then you can probably remove the original file/package without using sudo05:36
andy_bastidraZor: "uname -r" returns "2.6.35-25 generic," but I don't think that's the xubuntu version, is it?05:37

Starminnlighta: So you want to install Windows? Have you tried the folks over at ##windows?05:37
rtz1can someone help me ?05:37
MurphantMy question got drowned, sorry for the repost: When I press ctrl-alt-f1, I get a bunch of pixelated colors at the top of my screen instead of a readable, black-and-white prompt, any ideas why it is the case?05:37
ActionParsnipgmachine_24: yes, but apt-get isn't needed to rm a directory.05:37
bastidraZorandy_: close enough, that would indicate you're using 10.10 .. did you try sudo apt-get update?05:37
albertesiri you can  try my way05:38
lightayep i'm there also Starminn, reading some tutorial but if you had a good link I'd be pleased if you share it =)05:38
crlcan81thank you. for some reason ubuntu's repositories listed burg as newer then grub2 and better.05:38
gmachine_24ActionParship, I was talking about removing a program file that had been downloaded and was then installed. If that was unclear, I apologize.05:38
Jordan_Ucrlcan81: You're welcome.05:38
esirialbert http://paste.ubuntu.com/570401/05:38
LancelotJordan_U, this is turning up much more stuff, thanks05:38
Librarat Sorry for the repost, but I keep drowing :\    I was trying to set up dual displays earlier and have managed to botch my ubuntu install entirely -- x will no longer start at all, and I can't get failsafe to load either (it crashes with an error saying no suitable driver found, and no vesa either).  The best I get is a command prompt.. how do I get X back?  I was googling for a fix and ruan an apt-get purge xserver-xorg and then05:38
Libraratapt-get install xserver-xorg ... which now leads me to the no driver found... :s  What do I need to do to get Xserver back?05:38
crlcan81now gonna add my personal desktop walkpaper choices and a few other things.05:39
Starminnlighta: No, unfortunately I have nothing to shed on the situation. Just making sure you asked in a Windows channel too as they'd likely know better than us. :)05:39
esirialbert i can try why not,05:39
gmachine_24This is what I wrote: you go to the directory and do sudo apt-get rm <filenametoremove> ... the directory being where you dl the program file05:39
gmachine_24Librarat, someone give Librarat the pastbin addy05:40
andy_bastidraZor: I did. It gives me a list of things it "failed to lock," then asks me if I'm root. Then I enter "sudo bash" to become root. But when I run apt-get update, I get another long list of "W: Failed to fetch etc." and ending with "W: some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead."05:40
albertesiri  add this line at the end of  modules   apm power_off=105:40
Libraratgmachine_24, not sure what you're asking me for .. :s05:40
=== dbland is now known as Forge
rtz1does anyone have an answer to my q?05:41
albertesiri good lucky to you05:41
=== Forge is now known as Guest72345
esirialbert i did try before add    apm power_off=1 but stil same :)05:41
gmachine_24Lancelot, I think you're on your way, right?05:41
Jordan_Ugmachine_24: apt-get has no "rm" option, nor does it perform a function like what you are explaining.05:41
Starminnlighta: You have the .iso?05:41
ActionParsnipgmachine_24: so why not just: rm -r folder-or-filname-here05:41
albertesiri I am sorry05:42
=== Guest72345 is now known as dbland
lightajust need to know wich file to put to make it bootable05:42
albertesiri  I will go to school05:42
Starminnlighta: Why not go to System->Administration->Startup Disk Creator and make it? I've never done it myself but try it out?05:42
esirialbert seems havent luck :)05:42
gmachine_24Jordan_u, god, of course you're right. I'm sorry - my mind is trying doing too many things at once.05:42
gmachine_24leave off the apt-get05:42
Jordan_Ugmachine_24: np :)05:42
rtz1who has a lil knowledge about nat here ?05:43
Starminnlighta: What do you mean "Which file to make it bootable"?05:43
lightaisn't this create only linux distri ? I never tryed but, yeah let's give a try =)05:43
gmachine_24devine a little05:43
Jordan_U!anyone | rtz105:43
ubotturtz1: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.05:43
esirialbert thanks good luck too :)05:43
rtz1 i have two ISP ie (first gateway) ( second gateway) and i have dhcp  for my clients... i want half of my clients ( to go out thru 1st gateway and my second half (192.168.128/25) to go thru second gateway05:43
rtz1I keep posting it lol :P05:43
rtz1do u see my question?05:43
lightawell for usb you often need BOOT.ini folder and lots of thing like that, I wish I'd as easy as cd, but cd is dead.. and I don't have any lector so05:44
Libraratgmachine_24, how can I suppliment my hep request? I know what pastebin is, but I'm not sure how it applies in my current situation. the vesa module cannot be found, and xorg is failing to start, even after dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg05:44
Jordan_Urtz1: Yes. And if anyone is around that can answer it they will.05:44
gmachine_24ok, I meant DEFINE a little.... not 'devine a little'05:44
bastidraZorandy_: have you made any changes to your /etc/apt/sources.list? it sounds as if you've borked them in some way.05:44
Starminnlighta: I've always made my Linux CDs by just right-clicking on the .iso and hitting "Write to disc..." so I'd imagine you could (maybe) set the "disc" to your thumb drive?05:44
Lancelotgmachine_24, yup, that helped. thanks05:45
Starminnlighta: I've never succeeding in botting from a USB, and I'm not sure if it's me or my somewhat-old system. *shrug*05:45
rtz1Jordan_U, ty05:45
ubottuPlease give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."05:45
andy_bastidraZor: I think that must be exactly what I (unintentionally) did. Any suggestions as to how to fix this?05:45
gmachine_24I was at the ER yesterday morning at 3:30 because I couldn't breathe and so I'm kind of whacked out on meds.... perhaps I should give a big "caveat emptor"05:45
lightayeah but linux usb are easier to create then windows in my opinion05:45
bastidraZorandy_: paste your sources.list05:45
gmachine_24If you spend enough time to really learn Linux - and I am not nearly there but am working on it - you will find it is truly amazing.05:46
gmachine_24so.... many..... options05:46
Lancelotgmachine_24, I've heard. Well, thanks for the help. Cya05:46
andy_bastidraZor: how to generate that list? (Sorry, like I said: noob.) Also, key fact I didn't mention: it's on a different computer.05:46

Andrew___Hi I am new to Linux, a hardcore windows user, but wanna shift, which flavour is best ?05:47
Starminnlighta: Well, all the links I can find are about creating a Windows-bootable USB *from* Windows (i.e. downloading programs, etc., etc. in typical Windows fashion). I'd just guess around. I can't help you much more (obviously) but I think you might be asking the wrong questions. ;) Try asking in this channel what Ubuntu programs can make a bootable USB and then ask the Windows channel what files it needs/what it should look like after 05:47
gmachine_24Learn the command line, Luke05:47
Andrew___Hi I am new to Linux, a hardcore windows user, but wanna shift, which flavour is best ?05:48
ActionParsnipJordan_U: that's what I thought..05:48
Jordan_U!best | Andrew___05:48
ubottuAndrew___: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.05:48
gmachine_24Andrew_, chocolate05:48
andy_bastidraZor: maybe the simplest thing is to start over with my bootable Ubuntu 9.10 usb?05:48
ActionParsniprtz1: I know how it works, if its specifically networking you want then there is ##networking which may help05:48
bastidraZorandy_: http://pastebin.com/eNi1AMJ9   ..instead of 'lucid' yours should say 'maverick'   compare your list05:49
rtz1ActionParsnip: thnx buddy but they seem to be sleeping :)05:49
ActionParsniprtz1: thats not about NAT, that's about DHCP05:49
gmachine_24is lighta still there?05:49
rtz1ActionParsnip: dhcp server is easy to setup .. i just need this nat rule05:49
rtz1ActionParsnip: FYI it's mangle .. I need to mark packets as they go out so they know where to go out05:50
Starminngmachine_24: He hasn't parted the channel yet, it seems. He probably just hasn't checked back. He hasn't parted though.05:50
gmachine_24Starminn, he just wants to make a bootable jump drive?05:50
ActionParsniprtz1: you will need to setup 2 logical networks, one where one half of the network connects and one where the other half connects. Setup the dhcp service to distribute the right gateway to each then set the subnetworks to go through the single nat point to the web05:50
feg_mxhi all05:50
esiriI have a problem with shutdown  , I'm running Ubuntu version  10.04 lts desktop ,When I try for shut down , all process done and last said power down but dont power off.05:50
lightayeah, just 2s guys05:51
gmachine_24esiri, are you using a shutdown command i.e. cli? or what05:51

baegleIs there a way to do a fresh ubuntu net install from the command line of an existing system?05:51
ActionParsnipesiri: try adding the boot option:   acpi=force05:51
baegleOr am I required to burn a CD?05:51
rtz1sacarlson: i used it with other things like routers OS MIkrotik or CISCO05:52
feg_mxsomebody can helpme?   I installed Elastix, but I don0t know which is the extension number to check voicemail05:52
andy_bastidraZor: I get "no such file or directory"05:52
esirigmachine_24 i did used many comand about that  sudo shutdown now  power off init 0 ,,05:52
bastidraZorandy_: when you do what?05:52
ActionParsniprtz1: if you have 2 networks, one network can be routed through a different gateway to another, thereby splitting the network as you desire05:52
Jordan_Ubaegle: There are multiple ways. All of them relatively advanced.05:52
andy_sorry - misunderstood your directions. Trying.05:52
Starminngmachine_24: He wants to make a bootable USB, but he wants to make it Windows-bootable. Problem is, he's using Ubuntu to make the USB and all the tutorials call for using Windows to make it, so he's trying to figure out how to do it from Ubuntu. (P.S. I think he's back now)05:52
lightaok, yeah Starminn =( sound long maybe I'll ask a friend to make one for me instead. gmachine_24 you had something for me ?05:53
rtz1ActionParsnip: I know but how can I do that from ubuntu ? i have two of my isps connected to my ubuntu box and 1 LAN for my clients and i want to split them thru different gateways05:53
baegleJordan_U: I live in the CLI, but I'm not looking to recreate what the installer does. I'm looking to run the installer from the CLI05:53
rtz1ActionParsnip: wat do i exactly do05:53
=== tyler is now known as Guest7896
gnewbbeagle: Yes, but is easier to just repair it from boot, hen again I do not know why or the purpose for a net install on your setup.05:53
gmachine_24esiri, yeah, sometimes when I use sudo shutdown -h now I end up with a screen where it says system has been halted... usually I just hit the off button at that point.05:53
ActionParsnipesiri: also make sure you have the latest bios for your system, there may be acpi fixes in the newer versions (if one exists)05:53
esiriActionParsnip i did but stil same , and also i try  adding acp=off noacpi nolapic acpi=off but stil same05:53

Jordan_Unroy1: Ok, so it was just the fact that your hard drive has hardware problems that was creating issues for GParted. So while you should not trust this drive with any important data, it's probably no more dangerous to use palimpsest to modify partitions than it is to use the drive at all.05:58

andy_bastidraZor: and thanks for your generous help, btw.06:01
DaGeek247mickster04 the !grub command can tell you how to restore grub06:01
nroy1disk utility is seeing the primary partitions and the ext. part, but is not seeing the logical partitions inside the extended.06:01
Jordan_Umickster04: In the future, never install grub to a partition, always to the mbr. To restore the windows bootloader follow this guide: http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/bootinfoscript/index.php?title=Boot_Problems:Boot_Sector06:01

andy_Starminn: thanks - bastidraZor is on the case here. Thanks for your willingness to help out, though.06:06
Jordan_Ubaegle: Dowload the netinstall kernel and initrd then add an entry like this: http://pastebin.com/wrugrf7r to /etc/grub.d/40_custom then run "sudo update-grub". Then if you reboot you should see the "Ubuntu netinstaller" entry in your grub menu and you can select it and install normally.06:07
kibayaevilbug: may be it is visible set as the first boot devise but it is not active for booting06:07
kibayaevilbug: which type of machine is it06:07
evilbugkibaya: you must be confusing me, i haven't spoken about any problems.06:08
bastidraZorandy_: the pastebin i gave you, your sources.list should mirror that .. 'lucid' in the pastebin should be 'maverick' in yours. after you confirm this do a: sudo apt-get update  .. exit out of sudo bash and just use sudo .. sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list06:08
baegleJordan_U: thank you06:08

c_nickMy Desktop folder says 2.7GB free while GParted says 6.3GB Free how much exactly is the free space?06:09

gaelfxc_nick: gparted says 6.3GB free for what partition?06:10
ActionParsnipc_nick: what does: df -h   say?06:11
gaelfxc_nick: if your '/' and your '/home' folders are on different partitions, then the free space will be different06:11
* ActionParsnip doesn't trust gui apps for stuff like that06:11
bastidraZorandy_: sudo will make you do things as root. the first line does not matter since it is looking for a CD.. add a # before that line. the rest of the file is the concern06:12

nroy1gmachine_24:  gnome disk utility06:17
andy_bastidraZor: I am very sorry, but I think that I misled you accidentally. The first line in the source list has a # mark in front of it, which I guess marks it as a comment? The fifth line is: "deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick main restricted"06:17
gmachine_24nroy1, and what does gnome tell you?06:17
andy_bastidraZor: the first line preceded by a # is the one which mentions 9.1006:18
nroy1it is a gui partition manager, which shows all the primary partitions and the extended partition, but fails to see the logical partitions inside the extended partition.06:18

ChuOkay. Hello, I'm having problems upgrading from Lucid to Maverick. I've copied the required files and compressed them for analyses. Could someone help me?07:39
KB1JWQChu: Define problems.07:39
gaelfxChu: What method are you using for upgrading?07:40
ChuI'm using the same method: update manager. I'm unable to Upgrade07:40
ChuIf you'd like, I could send in the files07:40
gaelfxChu what does it say when you try to upgrade?07:40
Chu"An unresolvable problem occurred while calculating the upgrade: E:Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages."07:41
ChuI've even tried removing every package not provided by Ubuntu, and yet no luck07:42
lanksis it possible to use the hash symbol '#' inside a config file as part of a value rather than the start of a comment?07:42
Jordan_Ulanks: It depends on the syntax of the config file.07:42
cdbslanks: for that, use \#07:43
raidolanks: yes, it depends what program is parsing the config file07:43
cdbslanks: that escapes the hash and you can use it as part of a value/key07:43
ChuWould you like to see the log files? The error asked me to copy them just in case07:43
lanksok thanks07:43
ActionParsnipLanks: I'd say not. The guys in #bash may know different07:43
gaelfxChu: if you pastebin them, sure07:43
ChuUm, I have no idea what pastebin is07:44
Jordan_UActionParsnip: It's certainly possible in bash.07:44
ubottuFor posting multi-line texts into the channel, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com | To post !screenshots use http://imagebin.org/?page=add | !pastebinit to paste directly from command line | Make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the channel topic.07:44
ActionParsnipJordan_U: apparently so. Personally I wouldn't and stick to the KISS ideology07:45
ChuHere you go07:45
ChuThat's from Main.log07:46
ohsixlanks: they're preserved in here documents, and they're documented in the man page07:46
gaelfxChu: well, I'll tell you how I upgraded. I just used a LiveUSB and installed over my old '/' partition and mounted the same '/home' without formating it07:49
gaelfxChu: of course, with that method, you have to reinstall anything special you might have had, but that probably won't be an issue for you07:50
Chugaelfx: I see. I don't mind reinstalling the software, but unfortunately It'll take ages for me to redownload the ISO. I was hoping for an upgrade method.07:50
ohsixChu: you can make sure nothing is pinned, purge any ppa's then look for conflicts in what's left07:51
crlcan81I don't know what I did to my GPG signatures, but whenever I try to reload to check for updated packages, or when I add new package sources and reload for them, I get a GPG error: http://mirrors.cavecreek.net maverick Release: The following signatures were invalid: NODATA 1 NODATA 2GPG as well as six or eight other GPG errors.07:51
gaelfxChu: even with bittorrent?07:51
Jordan_UChu: It usually takes more bandwidth to upgrade than to download the latest iso and re-install.07:52
ohsixthat message is what you get when the upgrader can't find a solution with the dependencies07:52
ChuAh, how do I do that? I have disabled Ubuntu Tweak from the software center, but I don't know what else07:52
crlcan81in synaptic it gives me those errors via gui, in terminal it just says there's errors you may need to update your..07:52
ChuSoftware sources*07:52
crlcan81how do I fix that though? it didn't happen until after I added a more learning focused Ubuntu tweaker.07:53
crlcan81Didn't actually change any of the gpgs or software sources other then adding to.07:53
Chugaelfx: Even Torrents wouldn't help. It says it'll take over 2 hours. I'm downloading via direct method, since it'd be faster.07:53
gaelfxI guess we have different ideas about what "ages" means07:54
crlcan81Hate when I screw things up.07:54
Tweakyhi everyone. bought a new pc, came with windows 7................ trying to get to the bios screen (hp laptop) to enable the cd drive to boot first so i can install ubuntu, it doesnt even give me text saying press f10 or anything to enter bios mode just goes straight to loading windows. any idea how i can get around this so i can install ubuntu already :/07:54
gaelfxcrlcan81: have you tried disabling all the ppa's or whatever? Maybe if you write them down and re-add them, things will be ok07:55
crlcan81you know how many of those I have..?07:55
twitchTweaky: from boot keep spaming f12 or del07:55
ohsixTweaky: if theres no bios you can try holding C, or pressing f9; it depends on the bios what brings up the menu, hitting escape just after it boots might show the actual boot screen and key combos too07:56
gaelfxTweaky: if you google for your particular model, you should be able to find out which key to press to get into the BIOS on startup, then make sure you change the settings to display the POST screen in the future07:56
=== Inumedia_ is now known as Inumedia
gaelfxcrlcan81: you know how easy it is for those to screw up your GPG signatures?07:56
ActionParsnipChu: if your packages are weird, try the large command block I suggested here: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+question/14634807:56
ActionParsnipTweaky: try F1107:57
ActionParsnipcrlcan81: please see above07:58
ActionParsnipChu: sorry bad tab07:58
suprscottDoes 10.4 have the ability to mount USB drives formatted as exFAT?07:58
gaelfxI hate how Windows 7 notebooks are all preconfigured to keep you from knowing the BIOS exists. I want UEFI dagnabits07:58
crlcan81which part of above?07:58
crlcan81your command block part?07:58
gaelfxcrlcan81: he was talking to someone else07:59
ActionParsnipcrlcan81: yes07:59
Tweakyi have tried every key i cannot get to the bios.... question: if i format the hard drive will this give me access?07:59
ChuTweaky: Try ESC key07:59
gaelfxTweaky: no. What model is your computer?07:59
Tweakyhp pavillion dv5-2129wm08:00
Jordan_Ugaelfx: UEFI can be just as bad, in fact in my experience [U]EFI implementations have been more annoying than BIOS ones far more often than not. <3 OpenFirmware though.08:00
Tweakyi have tried escape, all f keys, and del, during startup08:00
Jason1Hey all. Can someone give me some advice about a network connectivity issue?08:00
ActionParsnipTweaky: as long as Cd is a boot option, yes. I suggest you find your manual to see which button you need08:00
ActionParsnipJason1: ask away08:01
ohsixTweaky: that machine should have the insyde uefi bios, f9 for boot menu, f10 for bios; hitting escape at first splash will show the boot messages08:01
gaelfxJordan_U: this is probably true, but at least with UEFI, there is some hope of it growing in any way08:01
osmosis_paulMorning, somebody know where is the error or this query??08:01
osmosis_paulssh -i /home/ubuntu/.ssh/booster_aws.pem ubuntu@REMOTE_MACHINE mysql -uweb -pweb -e "PURGE BINARY LOGS BEFORE  '2011-02-18 13:23';"08:01
crlcan81what's bin/bzip2/ returned 'Error Code 2' mean?08:02
Jason1ActionParsnip: thanks man. Someone else on another channel just jumped in.08:02
osmosis_paulif i execute that query local in the machine works\08:02
crlcan81well, returned an error code (2) actually08:02
Tweakyohsix : i just want to access the bios screen so i can change to cd drive as first boot to install ubuntu ><08:02
ActionParsniposmosis_paul: surely aski08:02
osmosis_paulbut when i try remotely does not works08:02
osmosis_paulActionParsnip, what?08:03
ActionParsnipNg in #sql would be wiser, osmosis_paul08:03
crlcan81because I did what was listed in the text block, and still got the same error.08:03
osmosis_paulthe mysql sentence works if i use in the local machine08:03
osmosis_paulbut if i use as a ssh command dont, so the problem is ssh08:03
crlcan81It's not that the GPG key isn't available, it's that it doesn't exist, anymore.08:04
ActionParsniposmosis_paul: do you have ssh keys setup?08:04
osmosis_paulActionParsnip, yes, i can connect by ssh, the most funny thing is that the response is the command option of mysql like if i dont execute correctly the command08:05
osmosis_paulbut as i told you if execute that command without the ssh stuffs in the local machine works08:05
osmosis_paulis wierd08:05
ActionParsniposmosis_paul: have you asked in #ssh too (or a channel for ssh)08:06
osmosis_paulActionParsnip, dont know that exist thanks!08:07
ActionParsniposmosis_paul: its worth a try08:07

Jason1Hey there. Can someone give me some advice about a network connectivity issue?08:11
rww_skpl: not the size of #ubuntu's ban list ;P08:11
gaelfxJason1: describe your issue and we'll give it a shot ;)08:11
Jason1configured opendns this morning and now a connection doesn't last longer than about 20 minutes. Have to restart or at least put the computer to sleep.08:13
gaelfxTweaky: looks like you need to hold the ESC key as you turn the laptop on08:13
Tweakygaelfx : ok, will try08:13
kisukeok is any one else having trouble with nividia-current?08:15
Tweakyi guess the issue is that its totally skipping the post screen08:16
mickster04!details | kisuke08:16
ubottukisuke: Please give us full details. For example: "I have a problem with ..., I'm running Ubuntu version .... When I try to do ..., I get the following output: ..., but I expected it to do ..."08:17
crlcan81Well it's corrected on the 'can't recognize' part, but now software sources and the rest says I have duplicate entries. How do I remove copies of the same software sources?08:17
nallideHi guys08:18
gaelfxTweaky: well, there really ought to be a way around that though, I had a lot of trouble with my netbook at first, but eventually I got it08:18
gaelfxcrlcan81: 'Software Sources' under Administration08:18
kisukemickster04: im tring to be, its not cooperating.08:18
gaelfxcrlcan81: oops, or in Synaptic Package Manager08:18
nallideIs it possible to extract XML from PDF, like Adobe08:19
gaelfxcrlcan81: in Synaptic, it's Settings -> Repositories08:19
gaelfxI have no idea why they chose to hide Software Sources in 10.1008:20
Tweakygaelfx: yeah i need to figure out how to get the post screen up so i can edit the bios since it doesnt try to auto boot from cd.. i cant stand this windows garbage! lol08:20
crlcan81Witch part though? in Ubuntu software tab, other software, updates?08:20
kisukeok let me phrase that, has any one tried to install nvidia-current and gotten a dmesg full of "NVRM:rm_init_adapter(0) failed"?08:21
mickster04kisuke: you didn't tell us anything about your problem08:21
mickster04kisuke: better08:21
gaelfxcrlcan81: "Other"08:21
kisukemickster04: i had to dig out a keyboard to drop to a shell08:21
theoshi all! i am not able to connect to my wireless modem after i restarted my system. can i get some help? :)08:22
crlcan81all the extra ppas are disabled, only things active are conical and independent third party.08:22
mickster04theos: have you turned it on?08:22
theosmickster04, yes its turned on08:23
gaelfxcrlcan81: you might also check under "Authentication" to see if it has any keys duped08:23
mickster04theos: my point is we need more details, what have you tried doing08:23
crlcan81once I let sudo apt-get update run.08:23
crlcan81to double check08:23
theosmickster04, ok. dmesg shows "[  890.920773] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready"08:24
mickster04theos: good , now see if anyone can help08:24
mickster04wait and see*08:25
gaelfxtheos: could you pastebin 'ifconfig' or 'iwconfig'08:25
theosthe network manager applet is not searching for wireless networks this time :/08:25
theosgaelfx, do you need the wlan0 part of both? or whole?08:25
twitchtheos: pastebin "lspci -v"08:25
gaelfxtheos: just wlan is fine, but whatever's easiest08:26
crlcan81as far as I can tell, no, no duped keys.08:26
theosok i will pastbin it . just a moment :)08:26
gaelfxcrlcan81: then I have no idea what it's talking about when it says you have dupes :P08:27
gaelfxsorry, wish I were more helpful08:27
crlcan81that's alright, I think I DO know what it is, but no clue HOW it happened.08:27
* gaelfx lulls08:31
mickster04wow, did i just fall off the end of the planet08:32
EvilPhoenixmickster04:  ?08:32
gaelfxif you did, you'd probably end up where I am08:32
mickster04it just went really quiet08:32
EvilPhoenixmickster04:  that sometimes happens08:32
theostwitch, gaelfx http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=FwruN3Ts08:33
twitchtheos: what ubuntu are you running?08:34
theosthe network manager applet is also missing most of the time. i have to put my laptop to sleep to get it back08:34
Tweakythank you everyone who tried to help me, i think i will just take the pc into a shop and pay them to install it then it will be fine. thank you all very much for trying08:34
Lintwhich program work with .in files?08:35
theostwitch, its lucid (10.04)08:35
gaelfxtheos: did you try just adding it back to the panel by right-click and Add to panel...?08:35

gaelfxtheos: you said it worked before, right?08:38
theosyes. perfectly well :)08:38
twitchtheos: i have the same chipset as you in a lappy i dont use ... either get maverick or update kernel though external drives etc usb etc08:38
denayviawutmihi, is there anyway someone can create interference on wifi bands? 2.4 GHZ08:38
gaelfxtheos: you could try installing backports-compat-wireless package?08:38
theosok thanks twitch . i just wanted to find the reason why it doesnt work just after 1 restart. i didnt change anything08:39
gaelfxdenayviawutmi: really big magnets?08:39
sacarlsontheos: I suspect it's a network manager thing.  maybe try wicd08:39
theosoh lemme try thanks :)08:39
kisukedenayviawutmi: some wireless telephones, and some ham equiptment08:39
denayviawutmigaelfx: will it affect 5GHZ bands too? i have came to the conclusion that my connection was due to the band08:40

boota2hello, guys08:40
boota2anyone understatnds bind9 and dns?08:40
theossacarlson, no. its not encrypted. it used to work 30 mins ago. i restarted the system and it cant find any wireless devices now :(08:41
navinboota2:what u want to ask about dns?08:41
denayviawutmikisuke: i have replace an old router 2.4GHZ with a new dualband one.. when it was 2.4 same problems arose... when i use 5GHZ no slow network.. even if 5GHZ signals suck alot..08:41
theosthe network manager applet says "device not managed" does that help?08:41

gaelfxwhat's the command to scan wireless in terminal?08:42
boota2navin: i want you to ask me about it. i've got job interview about it today08:42
mickster04!ot | boota208:42
denayviawutmikisuke: thats why i say someone might be messing w/my wifi 2.4GHZ connection and would like to know how can one do it.. i have googled and googled with not much luck08:43
sacarlsontheos: the other funny thing is that wlan0 already has an ip address maybe you configured static or manualy in /etc/network/interfaces ?08:43
navinboota2:for that google is always for u08:43
boota2navin: it's not the same, and you do understand it. anyways, already google in parallel08:43

twitchtheos: sry u did .. ok gimme a min08:46
theostwitch, sorry. what should i pastebin?08:46
theosit used to show "default" before in the network connections. then connected to default. pppoeconf would find the modem then and connection was easy08:47
twitchtheos: sry doing a few atm :P .. like i said prolly install maverick instead of lucid08:47

mickster04navin: i'm pretty sure thats not ubuntu support08:49
theostwitch, i wanted to stick to the lts. maveric must be good too. i just found it funny that just 1 restart can mess with the system :)08:49
mickster04navin: like Lint suggesteded #gcc or find an arm dev channe;l08:49
crlcan81Finally figured out the problem.  At least it was a learning experience.08:50

theosPriyank, use the ubuntu livecd. open gparted. it will show all your drives/partitions. you can find out which is D: or G: by looking at their sizes etc08:58
Priyanksizes are exactly same08:58
gaelfxon a side note, is there a reason that the default install doesn't put '/' and '/home' on separate partitions?08:59
theosPriyank, then open the folders/partitions in ubuntu and match the data. you know which drive has which data.08:59
syn-ackgaelfx, It's not that "common" of an option, though it ought to be09:00

theosPriyank, oh you are already there. format the partition to ext3 or 4. and choose "/" as mount point10:11
PriyankI have 4gb10:11
sacarlson1Priyank: you will also be required to manualy select the root partiton location10:11
theosyou had 10gb partition?10:11
theosPriyank, you can add more space to your partitions. decrease the size of unwanted partitions. eg. windows partitions :P10:12
PriyankOkay I try using manual method :D:D10:13
Tito0096theos, is there a manual way to change partition labels via the terminal?10:13
theosyou should make partitions before installing. use gparted10:13

Tito0096not worried about data10:15
Tito0096what would be the command?10:16

Tito0096sacarlson1 I checked gparted to make sure it was /dev/sdg1 that was being labeld and not my HDD10:27
Tito0096the thing i dont understand though is that using a drive that was previously formatted in windows with the name "Media Drive" has no problems10:28
Tito0096why wouldn't it accept spaces now?10:28

ray_I am just trying to learn. I can just as easily re-install Ubuntu 10.04 instead, but for fun I wanted to learn how to remove one and leave the other which I just set up to do. I don't know what the proper way is so I can't argue whether what you are suggesting is the best way. I should just Google it for a while. There are so many answers on Google it's crazy11:11
immywhen i do dig google.com it comes up in the answer section...11:11
immyi think i understand11:11
sacarlson1ray_: well for one I would need to see like sudo fdisk -l ; to get an idea of the locations of each;  then just to delete all in the root of the disk should be as easy as sudo rm -r /path/to/delete/11:13
immyactually i don't... if i run 'host google.com' that ip address pops up among others... so why doesn't 'host ip' resolve back to google.com?11:13

ray_OK, now I see how that thing is layed out11:23
ray_I didn't see it before.11:23

ray_I haven't tried a virtual system yet. It's something someone suggested for doing something else I asked abou recently11:24
ray_OK, but how do I see this by size also in the terminal in GB? I made the installed Ubuntu Hardy Heron have 20 GB and the rest for this install.11:26
sacarlson1ray_: virtualbox is cool you can play with toys you don't even have yet,  like raid systems that need 6 hard disk to try,  even though you don't have the disks yet you can setup a virtual system to test it11:26
mix22891hello. how do i enter as a root in terminal ?11:27
erUSUL!rootshell | mix2289111:27
ubottumix22891: Using !sudo with single commands is preferable in most circumstances. However, if you really need a root shell, use « sudo -i » (other variants of this commands are redundant and/or potentially dangerous)11:27
erUSUL!sudo | mix2289111:27
ubottumix22891: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information.

brachiosaurussacarlson1: kind of. boots up but still stops doing stuff if i'm not moving the mouse.11:41
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: sounds like some custom kernel with added debug or something11:41
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: try another kernel if posible11:41
brachiosaurusthere's nothing custom? it's a straight Maverick netbook edition install11:42

LogicallyDashingI made a custom install CD out of the 10.04.2 i386 desktop CD. I booted the CD in a virtual machine (kvm) and it seemed to work. Then I used that disc image to make a USB bootdisk... and instead of booting it says: "vesamenu.c32: Not a COM32R image". What?12:02
brachiosaurussacarlson1: ty. i'm not sure the issue is in X though, seeing it happens during boot before X is loaded :/12:02
sacarlson1LogicallyDashing: well what did you use to install the image to a usb disk?12:03
LogicallyDashingsacarlson1: Startup Disk Creator, in Kubuntu12:03
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: ya sounds like the keyboard problem starts early on12:04
LogicallyDashingsacarlson1: The startup disk creator was on a different machine than what I used to make the image so I guess that might be a thing, the Kubuntu machine is 64 bit...12:04
cutiyarJordan_U, hello did u fix the undelflv script?12:04
sacarlson1LogicallyDashing: well that sounds like it should have worked as long as it's a ubuntu destro iso file12:05
jukany idea how i pull pack + deps from apt archives?12:05
LogicallyDashingjuk: by installing like normal?12:05
LogicallyDashingjuk: if you want to download the packages and NOT install them, Synaptic has a checkbox for that, the packages will end up in /var/cache/apt/archives12:06
jukLogicallyDashing: aren't you smart, you think i didn't think of that in the first place12:06
jribjuk: what do you want to accomplish, i.e. once you have these packages, what do you want to do with them?12:06
sacarlson1LogicallyDashing: I think I found your problem http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-mint-84/trying-to-boot-linux-mint-9-from-usb-flash-drive-vesamenu-c32-not-a-com32r-image-829397/12:06
jukjrib: move to offline machine and install in deps order12:07
jribjuk: have you explored your options in the !offline factoid?12:08
LjLjuk: why doesn't what LogicallyDashing said work?12:08
jukjrib: doing :/12:08
jukLjL: because like you php script it generates list, which is no use, when hell lot of deps12:09
brachiosaurussacarlson1: naw no help... i don't think i'm going to resolve this one...12:09
brachiosaurusthanks though12:09
surialHow do I figure out with (aptitutde) why something has been auto-installed? I'm trying to remove all signs of the GUI (currently xfce) and neither apt-get remove xfce4 nor xubuntu-desktop is doing the trick (neither is installed).12:10
LjLjuk: why? just do "dpkg -i *.deb" and it'll sort things out automatically, always did for me...12:10
jukjrib: it says will generate download list, but it's offline machine i need to move on, and if it would online i would bother doing...12:11
jribjuk: right, so you download on a machine that is online, then copy to the offline machine and do what LjL said12:11
dnivrahello. I would like to know is the file /etc/lsb-release created by installing of some application or is it existent by default?12:11
jukLjL: ah, i didn't know :/12:11
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: well find out what driver it uses for the cam and just delete it from the kernel,  then it can't even try to use it as a keyboard12:12
jribdnivra: base-files seems to own it12:12
jribdnivra: (installed by default)12:12
jukjrib: fare enough, thanks12:12
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: you might see with sudo lshw12:12
surialOkay, looking at the sheer number of packages explicitly installed (no A in aptitude search), I don't think apt-get remove (anything) is the appropriate way to turn an ubuntu install back to a command-line only version. WHat is the right way?12:12
brachiosaurussacarlson1: it's not the problem i think. just tested and the cam works fine anyway.12:12
jribsurial: apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop (for example) and then apt-get autoremove12:12
sacarlson1brachiosaurus: oh ok, ya could be something totaly different cuasing the problem12:13
surialjrib: ubuntu-desktop, xubuntu-desktop, xfce4 all not installed.12:13
jribsurial: but they were at some point?12:13
dnivrajrib: installed by default good-that's what I wanted to know. but something else too-is it dynamically created? cos I extracted the file lsb-base.deb and i didn't find the file in the /etc folder inside it.12:13
surialjrib: No. And yet when this machine boots, I see a gdm login and if I do, xfce.12:13
cutiyarJordan_U, the script will work in firefox?12:13
surialgdm also is installed according to aptitude.12:13
jribsurial: so how did you install xfce, what packages did you install?12:13
brachiosaurussacarlson1: i think so. anyway, bedtime. thanks for the help. bye12:14
surialjrib: Fairly sure xubuntu-desktop, but I guess not.12:14
jribsurial: why do you guess not?12:14
surialBecause apt-get -s remove xubuntu-desktop says: Package not installed.12:14
jribsurial: sure you didn't remove it earlier?12:14
surialPossibly. But the system still boots into a gdm login screen. and most GUI related packagesa re still installed.12:14
jribdnivra: it's in base-files package12:15
jribsurial: so do the second step (apt-get autoremove)12:15
surialjrib: Did it. Didn't do much.12:15
surialjrib: I see xfdesktop4 is installed with the A flag. How do I check why it's on A?12:15
surialperhaps that'll lead me to the package.12:15
arvind_khadrisurial, did you remove gdm ? A is for automatic12:15
surialarvind_khadri: I know - how do I figure out which package is dependent on it?12:16
jukjrib: one more moment apt-get says i have pack installed so wont download, what now :|12:16
jribsurial: probably xfce4?12:16
arvind_khadrisurial, apt-cache rdepends <packagename>12:16
dnivrajrib: oh okay got the package name wrong :). thanks a lot!12:16
surialjrib: xfce4, xubuntu-desktop and ubuntu-desktop are all not installed.12:16
arvind_khadrisurial, first of all xubuntu and ubuntu-desktop are meta packages.12:17
jukjrib: is there way to point it to look in cache first12:17
jkgtry to remove xfdesktop4 and see what else it wants to get rid of? (this may not be the "right" method, but it's what I'd try)12:17
jribjuk: which method are you trying?12:17
surialsigh. removing xfdesktop4 just removes that.12:17
jribsurial: what ubuntu version is this?12:17
surialkarmic koala.12:17
surialI think. hold on.12:18
jukjrib: apt-get -d (do NOT install)12:18
surialYeah. 9.1.12:18
jribsurial: are you an aptitude or apt-get user?12:18
surialusually apt-get.12:18
surialI thought they amounted to the same thing.12:18
khussein78is there application under ubuntu work like cd roller in window ( recover multiple disks )12:18
arvind_khadrisurial, no12:18
jkgaptitude remembers what got installed automatically, so you can ... uh, yeah :-)12:19
indeedam i connected ?12:19
jribsurial: not with the auto-removal stuff.  I think if you use one to install and the other to remove, they don't "know" what the other knows as far as auto-removal goes12:19
surialarvind_khadri: It's our home server and various people have been playing around with it. I usually use apt-get. I believe a roommate usually uses aptitude. Did we screw this system up beyond repair?12:19
* juk wanna see super cow powers in action12:20
arvind_khadrisurial, no you haven't . Are you getting any errors when you run apt-get/aptitude ? And here is why to use aptitude "aptitude has more advanced conflict/dependency resolution and will often find a solution where apt-get gives up. It can be used from the command line like apt-get plus an interactive resolver makes it much easier to recover from broken dependencies."12:20
surialNo errors.12:20
surialand autoremove doesn't remove anything (I did that before).12:21
arvind_khadrisurial, do you get a GUI when you login through GDM ?12:21
jribjuk: doesn't that mean you already have the packages in archives?12:21
surialWell, let me try.12:21

jribjuk: apt-get -d will download to archives, won't it?12:22
surialI see xfce.12:22
surialIt doesn't look what it used to, and I get an error that it can't talk to the wastebasket service... so I guess it's about half of an xfce.12:23

SmokeyDbut how do I force a sync right now12:26
jribjuk: why?  You shouldn't need to.  Just copy everything and use apt-get.  Why would that not work?12:26
Pumpkin-SmokeyD: you want ntpdate12:26
SmokeyDbecause after installing, the date/time of my ubuntu server machine is still off by 10-15 minutes12:27
jukjrib: *everything* how you know all the deps, do you remember everything12:27
jribjuk: copy everything in your archives folder12:27
SmokeyDPumpkin-, on https://help.ubuntu.com/7.04/server/C/NTP.html I read ntpd is better since it checks it more frequently12:27
Pumpkin-SmokeyD: yeah, ntp sets the time slowly by lengthening/shortening a second slightly. If your clock is off by miles, stop ntpd, run ntpdate, then start ntpd again.12:27
SmokeyDPumpkin-, ah, ok, now I understand12:28
Pumpkin-ntpdate gets the time right, ntpd keeps it right (if that makes sense)12:28

pcperson1okay, thanks Ghostly13:03
pcperson1I will try that13:03

sacarlsonKlaus_Dieter: with this method you can backout if something doesn't work easier13:06

gsfaiIs there a way to setup my computer so when i start it up, it will automatically log in my account, start up startup programs, then lock screen ?13:49
Paddy_NIUbuntu_JS: installing ubuntu-desktop for that would be overkill13:49
ruanit sounds as if it is overwriting my partition with ntfs13:50
ruanbut it probably isnt13:50
sacarlsonraun: sounds like something that will do a dd of about 512 bytes of a disk to preserve to allow for a recover if needed13:50
gsfaiI probably have to put the "gnome-screensaver" thingy in the startup applications, but it will run everytime i login, not only when i start the PC up13:50
deuteriumdoes anybody know a good replacement for gnome's virtual pager? one like that we used in the old days with fvwm2 that supported moving windows on the same virtual page too?13:50
ruanwrite partition table?13:50
Ubuntu_JSpaddy_ni: IC.. but will the X-server give all the rich interface as the Ubuntu desktop with similar look and feel?13:50
Klaus_Dietergsfai:  configure your display manager to autologin, then setup your .xinitrc13:50
Klaus_Dietergsfai: in your xinitrc you want to run xlock or something like that13:51
Paddy_NIUbuntu_JS: if you choose to install gnome13:51
Ubuntu_JSpaddy_ni: yes I think gnome was installed on my old server as well13:51
Paddy_NIUbuntu_JS: then fire ahead let us know how you get on13:52
Ubuntu_JSpaddy_ni: in fact he tar balled my entrire old server that was 10.04 lts ubuntu and said that I can down load the tarball to my new server and just creconfig it13:52
sacarlsonruan: oh or it could be the reverse taking a prestored or created structure and writing to the partition sectors of a disk13:52
Paddy_NIUbuntu_JS: who?13:52
jukPaddy_NI: also fyi http://www.openfirmware.info/Open_Firmware13:53
Ubuntu_JSpaddy_ni: the guy who administered my old server13:53
jribgsfai: well a kludgy way would be to create some file when your computer boots then have a script run when you login that checks for that file, if it exists: lock screen and delete file.  You can use gnome-screensaver-command --lock by the way to lock the screen.13:53
Paddy_NIjuk: ah yeah nice :)13:53
gsfaijrib: yea i was thinking of a lock file too13:53
andreamorimalguem aqui fala portugues13:53
Paddy_NIUbuntu_JS: then you should really ask him13:53
Ubuntu_JSpaddy_ni: he stated he wrote a lot of custom scripts so to save all that i needed to tarball my entire server and i can replicate it on the new server13:53
khrmruan: It will write the original partition table and delete the existing one. Backup everything before proceeding with that step else if you want to just recover some files use photorec or foremost13:54

andreylosevbut since #linuxmint-help doesn't have a bot I've set up a text replacement system.13:56
andreylosevand right now it's working against me. ok no more offtopic13:57
gsfaijrib: well i concluded, ill place a script in init.d, to place a file somewhere, a startup bash script will search for it each time i login, and if it finds it, it will delete it, and lock screen.
