Would anyone pm me? ill try not to be a pain in the ass...... Ive been reading some tutorials and how-to's.. But just want confirmation that i have grasped it all right. Anyone willing to help a newbie?00:00

TheMozartexutux: the total installation size is a little under 1 GB00:00
starztormok ok :)00:00
PiciTheMozart: You may want to take a look at this, specifically the advanced users (GUI) section: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements00:01
exutuxTheMozart: a desktop?00:01
TheMozartexutux: you claim the base ubuntu install is at least 4GB, but I am calling your information misleading... because the base install is a little under 1 GB00:01
jribChesterX: so enabling a compose key, I can type ñ by hitting compose key + ~, releasing, then hitting 'n'.  That's a bit of a pain to type though :)00:01
exutuxTheMozart: maybe you talking about a minimal installation00:02
starztormSoftware manager. Does it only concern the programs listed  in it? or will it find all the programs that i install "outside" the software manager?00:02
PiciTheMozart: And its possible that we're confused, I assumed you wanted to install a desktop system as well.00:02
jribChesterX: what layout do you use now?  If USA, you might consider USA international00:02
TheMozartexutux: the total installation size is a little under 1 GB.   NOT 4GB as you have misleadingly stated00:02
TheMozartPici: i want to install Ubuntu from the LiveCD00:02
LjLTheMozart: the total installed size of standard Ubuntu with GNOME is >2GB00:02
exutuxTheMozart: a regular Desktop installation needs about 4GB of free space00:02
PiciTheMozart: So... Ubuntu Desktop.  And what did that link say that I just sent you?00:02
TheMozartLjL tell that to exutux because he claims its 4GB00:03
LjLTheMozart: i'm telling you that it's definitely not <1GB00:03
ChesterXjrib, i have the normal german layout. I used German Eliminate Dead Keys. It does the job but I ll keep looking ;-) Thank you for your help it will ease thinks a lot :D00:03
ulrichardI'm still struggling with makefile syntax. For example, I don't understand this : http://paste.ubuntu.com/574216/00:03
LjLTheMozart: and IIRC it's actually around 3GB, at least with Hardy00:03
TheMozartLjL I know.. tell exutux because he falsely claimes its 4GB00:03
=== sburjan_ is now known as sburjan`
LjLTheMozart: and you falsely claim it's less than a gig. your point?00:04
Logan_WP!attitude | TheMozart00:04
ubottuTheMozart: The people here are volunteers, your attitude should reflect that. Answers are not always available. See http://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/Guidelines00:04
jribChesterX: with usa international (altgr) I can just hit altgr + n.  You can hack something together too: like modify the layout to do what you want or just setup a keybinding with e.g. xbindkeys to insert the key (I think).  I have to go now, good luck00:04
TheMozartOk! well it seems its NOT possible to install Ubuntu from LiveCD onto my 2GB USB stick,, so I guess I will just grab it from here: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/put-ubuntu-10-04-on-flash-drive-using-windows/00:04

krycekPici: you arent excused.00:06
exutuxTheMozart: i repeat persistent live usb stick is different00:06
TheMozartis there another version of Ubuntu that takes up less space?00:07
ZeroZiatHey hey, little question about installing Ubuntu.00:07
Picikrycek: Lets try to say on-topic here.00:07
starztormIf i install a game using the aptitude command, will the update manager list updates for it when new versions are released?00:07
Picistarztorm: Yes.00:07
TheMozartexutux: how come that Usb Install from that link I gave you works with 2GB USB sticks?00:07
nsdstarztorm: Yes, as with any other package00:07
ZeroZiatI happen to have a free unallocated, unpartitioned 10 gigs on my drive, how can I make ubuntu use those in the installer?00:07
Logan_WP!ask | ZeroZiat00:07
ubottuZeroZiat: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)00:07
Picistarztorm: Well, as long as those new versions are uploaded to the Ubuntu repositories of course.00:08
exutuxTheMozart: for usb live persistent 1GB is enough00:08
dan_Hello everyone, Im having trouble getting the nvidia 330m graphics card to work with ubuntu 10.10. Can anyone help me?00:08
TheMozartexutux: you stated that I need at least 4GB to install Ubuntu.. so explain to me how that link I gave you says I only need 2GB00:08
Logan_WP!nvidia | dan_00:08
ubottudan_: For Ati/NVidia/Matrox video cards, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto00:08
nsdstarztorm: apt-get, aptitude, and synaptic all acheive the same thing, btw00:08
TheMozartexutux: thats because the usb live usb creator doesnt install it, it only mirrors the liveCD onto the USB stick00:08
exutuxTheMozart: i refer to official wiki and requirements not about link on world00:08
TheMozartexutux: so you cannot explain it?00:09
starztormPici: aha. Does the repositories concern other games than those listed in the software center?00:09

dan_http://forum.notebookreview.com/5820189-post2517.html        This is the link I have tried to follow with no avail00:10
drcTheMozart: no it doesn't, It also creates a ext2 file system for the "persistence" part...that is not simply mirroring the iso00:10
dan_i get an error right when i try to edit anything00:10
exutuxTheMozart: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LiveUsbPendrivePersistent read it00:10
exutuxIt is possible to have Ubuntu or Kubuntu on a USB drive (AKA USB Stick or Thumb drive or Flash drive) or USB hard disk drive with persistent mode. This means that you can boot from a USB drive and keep customisations such as keyboard layout, numlock, preferences, additional packages saved on the drive. This can be done using linux or windows00:11
LjLTheMozart, it's really very simple - if you "install" (which is not really installing) by making the USB key the same as a live CD, it'll take as much as a live CD takes (around 700MB) - if you actually *install Ubuntu*, that's bigger than 1GB00:11
TheMozartI wonder how come this Ubuntu only needs 2GB, but exutux claims Ubuntu needs 4GB?  http://www.pendrivelinux.com/put-ubuntu-10-04-on-flash-drive-using-windows/00:11
LjLi don't think there's more to say about this00:11

PiciMetaxa: Don't put the space in front of /msg00:12
TheMozartLjL then how come this version Ubuntu works on 2GB? http://www.pendrivelinux.com/put-ubuntu-10-04-on-flash-drive-using-windows/00:12
nsdPici: how's that work then?00:12
LjLTheMozart: you know why. stop trolling.00:12
Picinsd: Its the verify key that you get after you've registered your nick. It only works if you're already identified to your account.00:12
TheMozartLjL will installing from LiveCD onto my 8GB USB stick work?00:13
LjLTheMozart: yes.00:13
nsdPici: Ah.00:13
Trashihi. im browsing http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/allpackages sometimes behind a package i can read "univserve". so i think that means, that the "universe" packages includes are all other packages of the same app .. is that right?00:13
TheMozartLjL I have no idea why.. and it seems you cannot explain it to me00:13
skoris there something in ubuntu that allows dynamic libraries to be specifically mapped at runtime ?00:13
ZeroZiatI happen to have a free unallocated, unpartitioned 10 gigs on my drive, how can I make ubuntu use those in the installer?00:13
jcdaemon85friends can helpme plis? i install backtrack 4 r1 but i can see rmvb00:13
skorfor example: when running tcpdump, use custom libpcap library instead of the default00:13
macoZeroZiat: go to manual mode on the partitioning step and allocate it00:13
LjLjcdaemon85: this is not the backtrack channel00:13
Picijcdaemon85: We do not support backtrack here.  Please use their support channel: #backtrack-linux00:13
bastidrazorjcdaemon85: go to #backtrack-linux00:13
Jordan_UTheMozart: LiveCD's use a read only compressed "squashfs" filesystem. It's compressed so that they can fit everything onto a single CD. Squashfs is always read only, even on flash drives, so you can't use it for a complete (upgradeable) install.00:13
TheMozartLjL if I run the Ubunti LiveCD and choose INSTALL at the desktop.. will it install Ubuntu onto my 8GB USB stick and NOT alter or touch my hard drive?00:13
skorlike /etc/libmap.conf on freebsd00:14
MetaxaPici: when i do /msg NickServ VERIFY REGISTER Metaxa xxxxxx, it returns back unknown command, i'm using empathy00:14
LjLTheMozart: i already answered that00:14
ZeroZiatmaco: I really don't get it, I can select that space but no idea if it will use it, or if I have to format it into something.00:14
ZeroZiatJordan_U: Thanks for solving my wifi problem and my hdd problem earlier. :)00:14
TheMozartJordan_U: so how do I install Ubuntu if I cant from the desktop livecd?00:14
PiciTrashi: Not exactly.  This should explain it better: http://www.ubuntu.com/project/about-ubuntu/components00:14
TheMozartLjL I missed your answer,, repeat please00:14
Jordan_UZeroZiat: You're welcome.00:14
LjL[00:56:47] <LjL> TheMozart: i do believe your USB stick, if inserted at the time, will show up as a hard drive and you'll be able to install on it, but i can't say i'm 100% sure about that00:14
macoZeroZiat: in manual mode? add a partition in that space. pick a format (ext3 or ext4 are the norm, ext4 is default in auto-partitioning). set the mount point to /   and then itll be the system partition for ubuntu00:15
TheMozartLjL so you are guessing?00:15
Jordan_UTheMozart: You should have enough room to do a normal Xubuntu install.00:15
LjLTheMozart: i can only say again, stop trolling.00:15
ZeroZiatmaco: Oh, thanks!00:15
LjLTheMozart: i could also add, go insert the CD and try and stop wasting everybody's time.00:15
TheMozartLjL you are giving a lot of information based on your own assumptions and guesswork.. you seem to do that a lot... if you dont know the answers, then admit it and stop making things up as you go.00:15
ZeroZiatoh boy00:16
LjLTheMozart: i've admitted it almost exactly 20 minutes. now why don't you admit you are a troll and leave this channel?00:16
LjL*minutes ago00:16
* drc ducks and covers00:16
TrashiPici: the problem is the following: i try to install libimobiledevices libraries inclusive utilities ... and i dont know the name of the package which includes all libraries, programs, utilities, etc.00:16
ZeroZiatMaybe you both should get a second opinion?00:17
pmp6nlHello, does anyone know why in 10.10 I am only allowed to select one minute or less for dimming the display in power management?00:17
TheMozartLjL you fool a lot of beginners with your comments which are based on guessing and assumptions.. trying to big note yourself as an educated Ubuntu user.. but the reality is, most of what you say is not even accurate and you are just making it up as you go.00:17

syrinx_Exiting From su01:02
syrinx_There are several ways to exit from su, i.e., to return the login session or terminal window to its former owner, for those situations in which the exit is not automatic (e.g., when su is not used with its -c option). One is to type the word exit and then press the ENTER key. Another is to simultaneously press the CTRL and d keys.01:02

BlkSvrRhamphoryncus, download the new install, put it on a flash drive , and install to the new system.02:19
devcorkvinceRhamphoryncus: just make the new drive primary02:19
RhamphoryncusBlkSvr: don't have one handy :/02:19
Starminnquizme: You could try putting it between quotes or single-quotes. Basically, anything that tells Bash "This is a single string"02:20
BlkSvrRhamphoryncus a dvd or a dc will do ?02:20
quizmestarminn: i tried that02:20
Starminnquizme: A better place to ask if that doesn't work is in #bash02:20
Starminnquizme: Eh, ask in #bash then. They're the channel for that.02:20
quizmestarminn: thanks02:20
RhamphoryncusBlkSvr: seems wasteful but also seems like the most reliable solution.  The wiki FromLinux page has instructions to avoid it, but it also looks to avoid 75% of the installer and the autoconfiguration that comes with it02:20
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: btw, apt-get uses regexp so you want to be using 'apt-get purge apache.*'02:21
adminewbagliodbs: sar system monitor?02:21
StarminnIS there a way to make a PortablLinux of Maverick? PortableLinux seems to only support up to Jaunty02:21
BlkSvrAmpelbein, thanks, ugh not used to ubuntu, i wish i could go back to a pure cli installation.... but i need the hacker tools ... ugh.02:21
Rhamphoryncushmm barely have enough free space to download the image ;)02:22
adminewbLucid is behaving oddly: at random long intervals, my files&folders acquire emblems for no apparent reason, that can't be removed. Other emblems on these can be added/removed ok. Ring any bells anyone?02:22
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: your system looks severely broken to me (reading through backlog) and you would have it reinstalled faster than the "fixing" you are currently doing.02:22
Fostenanyone had any luck getting vlc to capture rawdv in ubuntu without dvgrab?02:23
bo_kanehey so does anyone know how to get out of busybox in ubuntu/xubuntu/kubuntu??02:23
BlkSvrAmpelbein, its not broken , its just not uninstalling stuff. And this isnt ubuntu. its a ubuntu offshoot made for pen-testing. I plan to strip it down package by package02:23
=== sun_ is now known as Guest60068
BlkSvrAmpelbein, till its just the pentest tools and bassic system utilities02:24
bo_kanewhich flavor are you talking about??02:24
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: why not go the other way round and use debootstrap to install a minimal system and go from there?02:24
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: seems way easier than what you are doing now.02:24
BlkSvrAmpelbein, cus the dev didnt put that option in.02:24
bo_kanewhat OS are you talking about BlkSvr and Ampelbein?02:25
BlkSvrAmpelbiel: Gnacktrack 5.02:25
BlkSvrbo_kane, i tried putting the tools into ubuntu, but this is infact easier (surprisingly)02:25
bo_kanewhich is easier?02:26
bo_kaneinstalling gnacktrack or the tools? clarify :P02:26
bo_kane..why not just add a gnacktrack ppa or request such a rep/o02:26
BlkSvrbo_kane: installing gnack, ripping it down to the bassics, then installing ubuntu and linux mint meta packages over it.02:26
bo_kaneoh cool02:27
bo_kane..is it nearly identical to backtrack in terms of programs?02:27
BlkSvrbo_kane: tried it, for some reason half of it dosent install and the half that dose wont go into the gnome menu.02:27
BlkSvrbo_kane: pretty much, but the dev did a horrible job of it, its only good as a live cd.02:27
bo_kaneyeah thats how most small projects are these days02:28
bo_kanepushing it out as fast as possible to foster interest in the project02:28
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: your best bet is to ask the developer what he did, because I think this is severely off-topic here in #ubuntu.02:28
BlkSvrAmpelbien: its all the same as ubuntu as far as what im doing (package management)02:28
adminewbMy lucid installation is behaving oddly: at random long intervals, my files&folders acquire emblems for no apparent reason, that can't be removed. Other emblems on these can be added/removed ok. Ring any bells anyone?02:28
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: just because it uses apt-get doesn't make it the same.02:29
bo_kaneif this were facebook i would "like" that comment haha02:29
BlkSvrAmpelbien: but using the same version of dpkg as 10.10 , the same synaptic manager, even the same software center dose.02:29
DrMaxlast update broke my nfs:  dmsg has message "svc: failed to register lockdv1 RPC service (errno 97)"  How do I fix this?02:30
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: it is still off topic as it isn't a official supported release. noone knows what the developer did when even such simple tasks as deinstalling packages doesn't work anymore.02:30
bo_kaneso anyone know how to fix busybox boot issues?02:31
BlkSvrAmpelbein: it dose work, ive had simpliar problem on ubuntu itself, apache is a "virtual package" or whatever.02:31
ubuntu_ok ubuntu wouldnt start after i installed along side win7, so I reformatted the drive ubuntu was on, grew it big again for win7, now when I boot I get something that says grub... using ubuntu on cd to get in here to find out what I need to do to remove grub and have my system boot into win7, btw I have no win7 cd...... help02:31
=== putra is now known as wirabumi
BlkSvrubuntu_, grub overwrit your bootloader, if you get rid of it, you wont be able to boot at all.02:32
bo_kaneive had a couple reboots where ive loaded up into busybox and afterwards cannot get past basic boot scripts on both normal and rescue boots02:32
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: like I said, that's broken. there is no apache package in the official repository.02:32

StarminnStevenX: http://www.tech-recipes.com/rx/2732/ubuntu_how_to_change_computer_name/02:33
bo_kanedelete your current install or make it smaller then use wubi to reinstall. windows sees it as an uninstallable program02:33
bo_kanestevenx, google02:33
BlkSvrAmpelbein, nothing is broken, he used a differant source. As far as i know, changing sources dosent break anything unless your an idiot with it.02:34
StevenXthanks Starminn02:34

Starminnbo_kane: Or if you have to be sarcastic, then at least LMGTFY them. ;)02:34
bo_kanethere is this program called wubi02:34
bo_kanei love that02:35
JasonnBlkSvr: He is not saying that it would break something, he is just saying that the packages are not fully, if at all supported by canonical/ubuntu, so we cant provide support - therefore its offtopic02:35
bo_kanewubi is a program you can use on windows to install ubuntu variants onto your harddrive AS windows programs02:35
exarDrMax: errno 97 is EAFNOSUPPORT and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1431118 says you can disable ipv6 to make the message go away02:35
bo_kaneif something goes wrong, you just hop on over to winblow$ and uninstall as you wish02:35
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: different source = not ubuntu anymore = not supported here02:35
BlkSvrjasonn: but you CAN provide support for your offical package manager, which is not broken or tamperd with, and is simply giving an error it would give with a virtual package from the main repo.02:36
DrMaxexar : hmm thx... so NFS stopped supporting IPv6 suddently?02:36
BlkSvrif i knew of such a package i would lay it down for you, and with 35 thousand + packages, there probably is one in there.02:36
DrMaxwell, rpc/portmap02:36
bo_kaneits also helpful in that you can set the size of the ubuntu install, however, the max is 30gb, which is a bit of a limiting factor but sounds good for you in that you want to keep windows larger02:36
BlkSvras such it IS supported by this session.02:36
BlkSvrNOW. may we stop stalling for time and pushing this off, and put our heads together to help a fellow member of the community.02:37
bo_kaneWas that helpful, ubuntu_ ?02:37
Abhijitif i installed libreoffice .deb form their website then i will not get automatic updates for it, right?02:37
exarDrMax: I just did a quick google search of your error message. I don't know what caused the error to start popping up for you. Sorry.02:37
BlkSvrthis should be an issue of what is and isnt yours to help with, this should be the issue of a member in trouble, and as such it is your obligation, nay your duty, to help such a member if you are a person who is inclined to do so.02:37
bo_kaneif you WANT updates, install the ppa as per their instructions02:38
bo_kanepersonally, i would add it as they update more often than the ubuntu project02:38
Abhijitbo_kane, 'whose' instruction? i only found that on omgubuntu.02:38
Starminn!who | bo_kane02:38
ubottubo_kane: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)02:38
ChogyDanBlkSvr: I think the virtual message is misleading you.  It just means that it isn't installed.  You are going to have to remove those menu links through a means other than apt-get I think02:38
BlkSvrnow, can we stop pushing off things we dont know about, and learn together about the system we use.02:38
coz_Abhijit,  probably better to find a PPA for it02:38

JasonnBlkSvr: you are getting the package/update from a third party - its like getting a ford car, getting the motor on the black market, and complaining to ford that it doesnt work02:39
ChogyDanBlkSvr: you gotta ask the dev how s/he is managing that icon.  S/he may not have used a package02:39

BlkSvrMios: WAIT02:48
MiosI know this. I dont... *Waits*02:49
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: that means that you don't have anything installed with apache in it's name02:49
bo_kaneMios: if youre feeling ambitious, you can try zfs ^.^02:49
BlkSvrmios: whats your ram, make your swap be 2 times the size of your ram.02:49
ChogyDanubuntu_: I would just reinstall Ubuntu.  Grub needs a few files on the Ubuntu install to function, and unless you can reinstall the win7 bootloader, you are stuck with grub, eh?02:49
MiosMy RAM is 3 GB. I shall make a 6 gig Swap file.02:49

BlkSvrAmpelbein: Hmm looks like my gut is wrong ill gedit the .desktop file to see wheres it calling the shots from02:52

MiosI am using the Installer. The GUI seems to be replaced with a "HEY! YOU NEED SKILLZ TO DO THIS!" for this one.02:52
AmpelbeinBlkSvr: read up on 'man dpkg-query' to find out why you want ii.02:52
nichosDid i download the wrong version??02:52
MiosI, however, do not remember my skillz to do that.02:52
Firefishealisalaah: That might explain why I can't get to certain sites, but I seem to remember I was able to get to them before I started using the openDNS name server addresses.  The thing is, I've deleted everything from all files previously changed.02:52
MiosThe z is unnecessary, I know.02:52

blkdgpanfist, once you've compiled, make, make install (or whatever) you can del the source dir02:58
panfistblkdg what if the program is a service, why would i put it in my home dir? i know it's just the source, but still02:58

blkdgpanfist, get the source, untar it in your home dir, enter the newly made dir, compile, exit the dir rm that dir.02:59
exardo you have it mounted?02:59
Firefishealisalaah: Just read it.  I read something similar on openDNS's site.  I've deleted the `prepend ...' stuff from /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf, as well as openDNS's name servers from the wireless account in the lan/wlan manager, so maybe the isp uses it, anyway.02:59
th0rpanfist: if you put it in /usr/local/src you can use it to 'make uninstall' later. Always a good idea to keep the src even after the executable is installed02:59

panfistthanks th0r03:00
panfistblkdg i appreciate the suggestions, too03:01
blkdgpanfist, if you can see yourself recompiling for extra compile time features / optimization, then keep the source. it should be small in relation to the binary that you're making03:01
MiosOH. The largest partition is NTFS, does that make a difference?03:01
Firefishealisalaah: There was one step that had me do this:  `cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.auto  --  What does that do, exactly?03:01
th0rpanfist: old thinking knows what /usr/local is all about; new thinking (ubuntu) says to keep out of / and do everything in /home03:01
exaryeah Ubuntu can resize NTFS no problem03:01
panfisti think make uninstall is the best part and i had no idea that was even possible before03:01
MiosMerda. I can't figure out what is messed up. D:03:01
exarpanfist: it's not always possible -- it depends on the package03:01
Firefisheexar: I'd also have 'em defrag the NTFS side before having gparted resize it, too.03:02
panfistyeah i guess the package would have to implement an uninstall script03:02
exaryes that is safer, Firefishe03:02
MiosFirefishe, I got the system 7 hours ago, there is very little to defrag.03:02
exarpanfist: just an uninstall target in the Makefile usually, but some don't03:02
FirefisheMios:  @ yer pleasure, and/or risk, then, brotha! ;) hee03:02
blkdgpanfist, there's nothing you can screw up by rm'ing a source dir. think about it, worst case, you use more bandwith and get it again. /home is the safest place to compile03:03
exarMios: if you exit the installer and make sure the NTFS partition is not mounted (disk utility or just type mount at a prompt) you can see if gparted will let you resize it03:04
panfistblkdg: maybe i'm not a typical ubuntu user; i don't want to be safe, i want to learn as much as i can about system administration.03:05
panfisti'm doing this with the objective of learning how to manage a multiuser multihost environment03:05
exarMios: disclaimer: I'm not an op or official Ubuntu support or anything. I've been in this channel for about an hour. I came here to ask a question about bridging wireless networks, but at this point I don't think this is the right place for it.03:06
MiosYeah, I've been disappointed by Ubuntu support before, but I figure it's the best place. Trolls in the tubes can screw up your system when you are trying to install stuff.03:07
blkdgpanfist, linux users are inherently safe. ubuntu users are linux users ...03:07

panfistblkdg: if you were going to install a program that's a service that could potentially be accessed by many users and hosts...03:09
panfistyou would seriously untar to home, install and delete the source?03:09

afmanHey if you want a program to run as an root from the GUI menu how do you go about getting Ubuntu to do that? IE if I want to run soemthing like wireshark without having to open up terminal how would that work?03:11

Miosmilamber:  http://imagebin.org/14071103:12
exarsee if the friendly resize option shows up03:12
panfistblkdg: well you're going to have to do more to convince me than just say '/home is the safest place to compile'03:12
milamberMios: brb03:12
duongthaihaMios:  r u trying to dual boot ??03:13
blkdgpanfist, think about it: grab x.tar.gz, un tar it, enter x, read the README, probabbly do a make , make install, then once it's compiled and installed, I would DELETE  the source.  why on earth would i keep it???03:13
Miosduongthaiha: Yes.03:13
exarMios: hehe that looks bad03:13
exarMios: does your partition have some kind of transparent encryption?03:13
MiosI don't know. I have 7 on that one.03:13
duongthaihaMios: how many partion in the harddrive that you have03:13
Firefishewhat would happen if I manually delete /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/resolv.conf.auto ?03:13
exarduongthaiha: Mios posted a screenshot03:14
duongthaihaMios: ohh can you use automatic partition03:14
MiosNo I can not duongthaiha03:14
duongthaihaexar: sorry just join the forum03:14
duongthaihaMios: do you need all 4 partition?03:14
panfistblkdg: because space is probably the cheapest resource in your computer? why not keep it?03:14
blkdgpanfist, one other thing, compiling a 'service' is the same as compiling an app. the make will dictate where things go unless there are compile time flags which let you over ride.03:15
MiosI most likely do not, duongthaiha03:15
dingowhy cant i reboot properly ? right now i am using the live disk to access this because i cant access my computer any other way ... every time i attempt to reboot my system with ubuntu 10.10 installed it takes me to a grey config screen with a blue background and it asks me to select a language ... but it wont accept any key commands ... therefore i open my cd tray (from the tower) place this disk in the tray close and shutdown ... then i wait and turn it03:15
dingo back on and it will let me reinstall but when i go to reboot later on (after the install) i have to go through the process all over again ... i am very tired of reinstalling so many times and i just want it to be fixed03:15
blkdgpanfist, so you want to mirror every version / revision of said package?03:15
duongthaihaMios: you have a very small ntfs sda303:15
cmolam have used microsoft visio on my windows, but what tool like visio on ubuntu 10.10 any body  can help me...03:15
duongthaihaMios: if you dont use them then delete it03:16
exarI would be wary of that03:16
=== lrs is now known as lrs__
duongthaihaMios: make sure you check if you need anything in that partition03:16
panfistblkdg: well, it depends on the package how much i would keep, but if it's huge than re-downloading can be a pain too...i like to collect things03:16
exarthose partitions could be being usedby the laptop manufacturer for restore or backup03:16
=== lrs__ is now known as kn0w-b1nary
MiosI plan to check03:16
duongthaihaexar: if that was used oem then normally it at the beginning the the harddrive03:17
panfistblkdg: but you are right, service or app it really doesn't matter for the source...03:17
duongthaihaexar: sda3 is somewhere at the middle which is a strange thing to have anyway03:17
blkdgpanfist, so then apply the same rule you just stated to where the compile occurs03:17
blkdgpanfist, /home ...03:17
exarif you boot into windows to check, look at the administrative tools / computer management / disk management to see wtf is going on with your main windows partition03:18
exarif it's encrypted or compressed or something03:18
MiosSDA3 is my recovery partition.03:18
panfistblkdg: i just think for a multi user system, if i was going to keep it at all, why my own home dir...03:18
FirefisheMios:  You could always wipe the entire drive, repartition manually an NTFS side and a ext4 (or what-have-you) side, then install ubuntu and then windows to their specific locations manually.03:18
MiosDo not want to get rid of that.03:19
duongthaihaMios:  okie no problem can you give us a better screen of your harddrive03:19
exarFirefishe: if this is a newer laptop, it can be a pain to get the drivers right for Windows03:19
blkdgpanfist, i would hazard a guess and say most people might keep kernel source, and that's seriously about it.03:20
milamberMios: how's the manual working out?03:20
Firefisheexar:  Well, if MIos's laptop came with a driver-recovery cd, there you go ;)03:20
exarthe manufacturer-installed operating system is usually filled with bloatware but the drivers are all the correct versions installed in the correct order03:20
exaryeah I'm just saying it can be a crap shoot03:20
blkdgpanfist, how multiuser ready is ubuntu?03:20
duongthaihaMios: I had the similar problem when i install my ubuntu. I have to use gpartition to shink some space03:20
th0rpanfist: in a multiuser system there are often several admins with access to the system. They would all have access to /usr/local, but would not have access to each other's /home03:20

phixGibss37: why would you want to do that though?04:42
Ep1kMalwareGibss37: give easus a look04:42
Gibss37phix:  because the grub loader is giving problems with windows 7 ?04:42
phixGibss37: but you can do that, just use a partition resizing / merging application like Partition Magic or partimage to do it then wipe the MBR04:43
Ep1kMalware__Logan__: you forgot the trailing slash. not that it matters.04:43
phixGibss37: I havn't experienced grub causing issues with Windows 704:43
phixGibss37: I dual boot on this computer04:43
Ep1kMalwarephix: why whipe the mbr, what if his primary (likely is) is windows.04:44
Gibss37phix:  when ever i log on to windows 7 after that, when i restart, a black screen says  "no module found...........No operating system found"04:44
Gibss37phix:  then i have to reinstall ubuntu each time04:44

Ep1kMalwaredo you have a boot-based recovery utility such as gag or  UBCD to give back to windows that charming master bewt record.04:57

DSpairI have an application I have written which is highly multithreaded. When I look at the memory use of that application it shows it to be about 10x what I would expect. It seems to report the total memory usage as the sum of the threads. The threads all use the same memory space though.04:58

Ep1kMalwareLogan_WP: no..04:59

kurtisWhat am I missing? I didn't see him use bad language or flood06:02
Alexander_q do i change languages?06:02
Ep1kMalwarefallguy: there should be a device entry around here somewhere for it.06:03
fallguyno other storage... well there is a external hard drive but it is not plugged in terms of AC power06:03
madfoxEp1kMalware, floodbot is a bot :/ silly you06:03
Starminnkurtis: If you send a lot of messages quickly then the FloodBot(s) will pick up and yell at them. The language was his acronym. DOn't worry about it, though. ;)06:03
StarminnAlexander_: I know on the login screen you can. Not sure if you can afterwards, though.06:04
JDM_SOHCanyone know if theres an xbox 360 IRC?06:04
kurtisahh okay :) I didn't realize it was just an auto trigger on a flood bot06:04
StarminnJDM_SOHC: This is the channel for Ubuntu support. If you have a qustion relating to that, then ask it. If not, ask in a channel more appropriate for your question.06:04
kurtisShould I stick around here and try to find help with my AR5001 Wifi Adapter or head over to Freenode? I haven't been to an Ubuntu channel in a while.06:04
StarminnJDM_SOHC: If you're not sure of a channel to ask in, then just try #freenode. They should be able to answer or at least properly redirect you.06:05
Starminnkurtis: Yeah, we have 3 of them I think. Regarding asking your question, why not both? ;) (I don't know anything about Wifi though, so don't count on me to answer)06:05
Ep1kMalwarethis is interesting06:06
kurtisStarminn: haha. Well I asked it here but in all of the chatter, it was either lost or un-help-able (ignored)06:06
Ep1kMalwaresudo mount /dev/sdb106:06
Secretsmy internet is wired and its not connecting06:07
kurtisStairminn: Thanks though! I'll give Freenode a shot.06:07
Starminnkurtis: Try again every so often. As long as you're not asking everytime it disappears off the screen we don't care. Just ask after it seems pretty far gone in the conversation. ;)06:07
Ep1kMalwaredid it return an error?06:07
Starminnkurtis: Yep. And if they don't know they'll be able ot show you where.06:07
fallguySays it can't find it06:07
kurtisSecrets: I tried to help you out but you didn't answer. What kind of an internet connection do you have? (DSL, Cable Internet, etc...)06:08
fallguymount: can't find /dev/sdb1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab06:08

kurtisI'm just having a problem connecting with my wifi. The Network Manager reports that Wifi is not enabled, I enabled it and not it says "Device not ready". I have some info here: http://pastebin.com/a0h3Z9Nn06:08
Ep1kMalwareit's been a while since I've worked with fstab, while back I had a gnarly external drive..06:09
Ep1kMalwarelet me read the man page06:09
Ep1kMalwaremeanwhile, let's create a temporary mount folder06:09
aarcanehelp, I've got two different systems with two different wifi cards and both run ubuntu 10.10 up to date as of tonight.  Neither will connect to my WPA2-EAP-TLS access point, however, both systems will connect fine from within windows 706:09
kurtisfallguy: Are you trying to auto-mount something on startup?06:09
Ep1kMalwaredo sudo cd /mnt || mkdir /mnt06:09
fallguyNo... believe me, I dont even know how to auto mount!06:10
aarcanewhat can I do to diagnose and repair this ?06:10
Ep1kMalwarekurtis: he's trying to get his ipod mounted06:10
kurtisoh ok06:10
Ep1kMalwarebut we're having trouble figuring out what the system is calling it, if at all.06:10
kurtisfallguy: Did you check this out already? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/PortableDevices/iPhone06:10
fallguymkdir: cannot create directory `/mnt': File exists06:10
Ep1kMalwarefallguy: ok that's good news :)06:11
kurtisaarcane: Run lspci and see what the chipsets are. Then google it06:11
Ep1kMalwareI couldn't remember if linux has a /mnt folder or not.06:11
fallguyfirst time tonight ;) hahaha06:11
aarcanekurtis, they're two different chipsets exhibiting identical symptoms, I believe that rules out chipset specific.06:11
Starminnkurtis: Have you tried connecting it with a wired conenction and having it grab the drivers for you?06:12
Secretshow do i fix my problem06:12
Secretsits annoying06:12
kurtisaarcane: Not nessasarily. I've had trouble getting 3+ WIFI Chipsets working right in Ubuntu without a bunch of hacks/manual work06:13
Secretsit all of a sudden stoped working06:13
StarminnEp1kMalware: It does have a /mnt folder, but it seems to use /media as its default mount point stuff.06:13
Ep1kMalwareStarminn: right on.06:13
StarminnSecrets: Ask again, all on one line, that way people can help you more easily.06:13
Secretsi don't know what happend maybe i deleted a drive if thats the case how do i get it back06:13
Secretsmy internet is wired and its not connecting06:13
Ep1kMalwareStarminn: I like /mnt for testing device mounts :)06:14
Secretson ubuntu06:14
kurtisStarminn: haha yeah :) I'm actually using it right now, wired. I've googled and read a ton of stuff but it either should "Just work", "Will magically start working" or ... there's a few remedies that don't help06:14
kurtisSecrets, I tried to help you but you're not answering my question.06:14
fallguyit's a real puzzle.. the ubuntu page makes this out to be a snap06:14
StarminnEp1kMalware: Yeah, I was going to say that if I had to guess for a reason it even has /mnt to begin with is because it's what people are used to. *shrug*06:14

Ep1kMalwarefallguy: what if you do supder apt-get install libimobiledevice07:01
hipitihopAssid, no idea what your problem is, but I find wicd works really well, have you tried that ?07:01
Ep1kMalwareoops, s/supder/sudo/07:01
Assidi really dont like wicd07:01
kurtisfallguy: Yeah, "apt-get update" just updates your package database, and then "apt-cache show <packagename>" gives you info about the package. To upgrade your package, you can type "apt-get upgrade". Of course sudo that stuff07:01
hipitihopAssid, you prefer network manager ?07:01
fallguyok im getting lost now07:02
fallguywhat should i do next?07:02
fallguyshould i try the supder thing or something else?07:02

gahfHello I installed a new graphics card, a 570GTX 1280MB by "Gigabyte". Ubuntu still won't recognize the card and I can't find any drivers for it. In addition when I use  System>Administrator>hardware drivers it comes up with drivers for my old graphics card. can anyone help me get new drivers and make ubuntu accept them?07:15
kurtisfallguy: Well that's good. At least we know you have the latest package. That was EM's concern07:15
kurtisgahf: If your old card was Nvidia as well, it's probably the same drivers07:16
IdleOnejussi: that user has the same host as the one just banned07:16
fallguyyes, as i said earlier, i just downloaded and installed all this stuff for the first time today, so I was pretty sure it was the latest versions.07:16
gahfkrtis it doesn't07:16
iRabbitblue_pearl, cli sudo update-grub07:16
Ep1kMalwarekurtis: if he has the package, and it's completely upgraded. then the only other obstruction I can see is perhaps maybe the ipod is locked with a password/pattern of some sort.07:16
kurtisgahf: You could try going to Nvidia's site and using their drivers. They have Linux (probably Debian but maybe Ubuntu)07:17
Ep1kMalwarei.e. needs somebody to sign into the device.07:17
blue_pearliRabbit, ok i ran it07:17
fallguynever had a password lock on this ipod touch, and disabled the autolock feature... it's on it's normal home screen as it is plugged in right now.07:17
gahfkrutis where?07:17
gahfkrutis it doesn't work07:17
iRabbitblue_pearl, reboot and let me know if it's back07:17
kurtisEp1kMalware: Yeah ... I don't really know. Someone could take him through watching the logs as he plugs in the device and stuff but it's going to be a lot of debugging07:18
kurtisgahf: Goto nvidia.com07:18

SealedWithAKissrigved, the GRUB menu displayed an old entry for Vista. Selecting this entry caused GRUB to take me into Windows Boot Loader. That displayed an error message saying \NST\AutoNeoGrub0.mbr was missing or corrupt.08:02
SealedWithAKissrigved, why would Windows Boot Manager mention GRUB?08:03
rigvedSealedWithAKiss: win 7 has it's own boot partition. grub should have booted into that08:03

gage_bwiflema: Like X, or like gnome?10:11
rigved!gui | gage_bw10:11
ubottugage_bw: The graphical user interface (GUI) in Ubuntu is composed of many elements, including the !X server, a window manager, and a desktop environment such as !GNOME or !KDE (which themselves use the !GTK and !Qt toolkits respectively)10:11
iflemagage_bw: rather minimal on features commpaired to gnome kde...10:12
fidyducewhy does unetbootin not give the option to format the drive before an install?10:12
Starminngage_bw: GNOME is the default, but for lightweight stuff you've got Xubuntu (Xcfe) and Lubuntu (Lxde). Openbox and Fluxbox are alternatives to the X Window Manager10:12
iflemagage_bw: more manual work/maintenance10:12
juk!format | fidyduce10:12
ubottufidyduce: For help with partitioning a new install see: https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/switching/installing-partitioning.html - For partitioning programs see !GParted, !QtParted (!Kubuntu 8.10 and lower) or !PartitionManager (!Kubuntu 9.04 and up) - Other partitioning topics include !fstab !home and !swap10:12
gage_bwI've never had any big problems with gnome, so I'll stick with it for now10:13
Starminngage_bw: It should be fine. Again, 512MB RAM for me and it ran fine. If it becomes a problem, though, feel free to try out Xubuntu which is similar to GNOME.10:14
iflemagage_bw: there is always scrotwm =)10:15
gage_bwit sucks that I have to upgrade my OS just to run irssi, though10:17

erUSULdepesz: « sudo Xorg -confgure :1 »11:31
depeszerUSUL: that will create the xorg.conf ? why :1 ?11:31
erUSULdepesz: to make xorg use another display not the current one; it will fail.11:32
depeszerUSUL: current? i don't have x running.11:32
erUSULdepesz: then you can drop the :111:33
ae0000is there a way of finding out the development path for different releases? ie. how can i find out if 10.04 LTS will upgrade php to 5.3.3?11:33
erUSULae0000: it wont11:33
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are: fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.11:33
depeszerUSUL: didn't help. created xorg.conf.new, but it doesn't start x window with it :(11:34
erUSULdepesz: you have to copy it to /etc/X11/11:34
ikoniadepesz: the file has to be called /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:34
ikoniadepesz: that path, that file name11:35
depeszerUSUL: or I xan X -config ..., but it still doesn't work.11:35
erUSULdepesz: by default it creates it in your home folder or root's11:35
ae0000erUSUL: it wont upgrade to php5.3.3? or there is no path?11:35
depeszanyway - it created very complex xorg.conf, but the one that ubuntu usually has - very small, < 200 bytes.11:35
erUSULae0000: in a release only bug and security fixes are patched into packages. there are no version bumps11:35

ae0000erUSUL: OH. ok. thanks :)11:38

ikoniaanurupr: iw ?11:39
depeszikonia: no. i ran Xorg -configure, and it made the .conf file11:39

ramcari do have a question though.  it's my first time to use open office and i was wondering how i could add a background video that would play throughout the presentation?  maybe someone here could point me in the right direction?  :)11:49
ikoniadepesz: how do you expect that to work ?11:49

dvrvmhi. question: we have a system with local /home folders, but the client will sometimes connect via SSHFS to a remote server, and it would be desirable to mount the /home over directyl from there. is this dangerous to do while running a GUI (i.e. while accessing ~/Desktop as well as a lot of other files in ~?)12:55
ethanolwhy does gedit bitch and whine so much when I try to open files from an nfs mount? it cannot determine the character encoding used thus refuses to open it. yet it only allows me to pick utf8 aside from auto detect (which it fails at). but I think the document is iso885912:55

=== haseha is now known as arch
jribdvrvm: why "suddenly"?  Can't you mount it before the user logs in?12:58
jribdvrvm: if you're changing home after the user is logged in to gnome, then yes, I wouldn't do that12:59
dvrvmjrib: no. sshfs is not always mounted (since internet access is not a given), and the user has to mount it by hand (using a script) from gnome12:59
sipiordvrvm: don't overwrite a user's home directory on the fly. really bad idea :-)13:00
dvrvmok, that's what i suspected. any alternative ideas?13:00
jribdvrvm: why does the user want to mount the other home?  Just to access some files?13:01
sipiordvrvm: depends. why does the sshfs volume need to be mounted at /home/$USER anyway?13:01
dvrvmit doesn't NEED to. but people want to access their data as if they were in the office13:01
dvrvmlike, using thunderbird etc, having the same openoffice settings...13:02

ethanolcause gedit only seems to know about utf8, I want iso support too13:05
dvrvmsipior: i don't like nfs over wan. nfs is what we use in the office. sshfs is the alternative for remote accessing your data from somewhere else.13:05

jribethanol: did you run localepurge and select the locales you want?13:06
jribchrispin: why, what do you want to accomplish?13:06
dvrvmsipior: ok, then your idea would be to automate the version control?13:06
ethanoljrib: yes, but that only purges other files. does not seem to create/add anything13:07

cynixsomebody knows how i compile src's with mingw ?13:42
ceohai all, am need help again13:42

ceoany body can help me how to make iso my ubuntu13:42
ubottuPlease don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)13:42
ileaso if most comon printers work i will be able to use it without installing any driver because linux haves a driver fir printers in kernel?13:42
harisundiceroot: I had some script that had export variable=data that for some reason worked on Bash but on dash13:42
jribharisund: no one uses dash interactively, but in theory it makes shell scripts run a little faster13:43
harisundPici: llutz thanks !13:43
grusumilea, I have HP Photosmart 5180 and ran hp-setup after connecting and it found and install required drivers no problem13:43
ceoam have install so many application, i am need to destribut it, and if my patner install my app include to ?13:43
icerootharisund: and we are talking about /bin/sh or /bin/bash?13:43
llutzharisund: just use #!/bin/bash as shebang for bash-scripts13:43
jribharisund: those scripts should specify bash in the shebang line, not sh13:43
ceoMayank, what up :)13:43
Mayankceo: did u try using UCK?13:43
Vikashabhijeet, I truely agree and I have tried many distros and is also egarly waiting for 11.04 but still I am unable to decide on that... Can anyone compare this with learning curve and explain?13:43

ileayes but i am geting a hp multifunctional not a photo printer13:43
vivek_i m a begginer can anyone help me?13:44
ceoMayank, what uck ?13:44
harisundiceroot: llutz jrib : ah ok, I thought I copy pasted it off the web and I guess the place I copied it from had assumed #!/bin/sh was symlinked to bash13:44
jribvivek_: best to just ask the channel your actual question (on a single line)13:44
Mayankceo: you want to customize live cd / iso dont you?13:44
ileato work at office and other things not to print photos13:44
icerootharisund: symlink does not mean bash is running sh in bash mode13:44
udayI'm looking to switch the web host for my institute. Can anyone suggest a host that runs Ubuntu, just looking to support the community and I haven't really taken a look around. Thanks13:45
harisundiceroot: So what should I "correctly" do? Have #!/bin/bash in the script, and run it using "bash script_name" or "chmod +x script_name; ./script_name" ?13:45
grusumilea, the HP5180 is a multifunction printer device AND a photoprinter13:45
icerootharisund: so doesnt matter if your are using bash, dash or sh. if you are using #!/bin/bs all three do the same13:45
icerootharisund: always a shebang13:45
