xycloThanks again^2, duanedesign01:16
xycloIf I succeed I'll come back to report...01:17

duanedesignyou will just change this command to suit:  sudo sh ati-driver-installer-11-2-x86.x86_64.run --buildpkg Ubuntu/maverick01:19
duanedesignas in, change file name and Maverick01:20
duanedesignubuntu23123: looks like in the mount command you are trying to mount the windows partition01:21
ubuntu23123is that not right?01:21
duanedesignsudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt01:23
duanedesignyou mount the Ubuntu partition01:23
xycloGreat, thx duanedesign01:25
duanedesignxyclo: there is a ppa you might try first if you have not started already01:28
xycloI am back, duanedesign02:18
duanedesignxyclo: hello02:22
duanedesignxyclo: i  noticed there is a ppa that has a newer version of the driver available02:23
duanedesignxyclo: not as new as the one on the ATI website02:23
duanedesignbut it is a lot easier to install02:23
xycloI can try that first02:24
duanedesignok the commands are02:26
duanedesignCensoredBiscuit: glad it went well and I wish you a very speedy recovery02:26

ubot2Launchpad bug 159941 in fglrx-installer "fglrx driver does not work in RT kernel" [High,Fix released] https://launchpad.net/bugs/15994102:30
duanedesignxyclo: FWIW that is the bug you are affected by ^02:30
xycloIt is what I thought02:31
xycloIt feels good to see it officially identified as a bug.02:31
duanedesignfrom what I have read the driver was patched, but packaged wrong i think, anyway it is fixed you just need the driver new enough to have the patch (done correctly)02:33
duanedesignso if the ppa does not work, uninstall what it installs and try the driver off the website02:34
duanedesignthe one on the website was released a couple months ago so surely it will work. You just have to compile the driver when you DL it off the site. It is not too hard though02:35
xycloHm... I am thinking I'll have trouble uninstalling?02:37
xycloI do not know how to do it clean...02:37
xycloby the way, your cat got me confused.02:37
xycloPlease see: http://paste.ubuntu.com/575281/02:39
xyclohm... misspelled02:40
xycloIt does not work...02:42
xycloI am trying from Synaptic now...02:43
xycloI think I can do this from here, including uninstall if it goes wrong.02:44
duanedesignxyclo: did you do the :   sudo apt-get update02:45
xycloBut it is ok now02:46
duanedesignohhh, i mispelled it02:46
xycloI keep messing up the spelling fglrx vs flgrx and I am not sure...02:46

duanedesigni am doing the same , lol02:47
xycloI am installing now02:47

xycloIRC Question:02:47
xycloHow do you do the Asterisk thing, like "* xyclo hates Verizon"02:48
xyclosorry for the trivia...02:48
duanedesignthe fglrx-installer package will install 4 packages02:49
duanedesignso if for some reason sudo apt-get purge fglrx-installer  does not work yoou can do  sudo apt-get purge fglrx fglrx-amdcccle fglrx-dev fglrx-modaliases02:51
xycloOK. I am installing 2 at the moment and I can add the other two. This worked for the original package, so I guess it will now again02:51
duanedesignxyclo: you do not need the other two02:51
xycloso only fglrx and fglrx-amdcccle02:52
duanedesignwhat was the IRc QUESTION02:54

johnny77Typically, is a wireless on/off button detected by bios or OS?03:56
aveilleuxjohnny77: Depends on the computer, my ThinkPad has a physical toggle switch but it can be overridden03:57
aveilleuxjohnny77: Other machines, especially netbooks, tend to actually switch off the hardware03:58
johnny77aveilleux: Thanks, I have a button on an old compaq. The light is always blue, but I thought it may be giving me my wireless troubles.03:59
aveilleuxjohnny77: Blue or green usually means on04:00
johnny77aveilleux: yeah, but even if I click it, it stays blue thus my question. I was thinking if it was connected to the hardware it should turn to the off color when pressed no matter the OS.04:02
aveilleuxjohnny77: Oh, it's a spring-loaded slider switch? (whatever that's actually called)04:03
johnny77aveilleux: no, it's a spring loaded button, similar to the keys of a keyboard, but not big and square.04:05
aveilleuxjohnny77: Oh, I see.04:08
aveilleuxjohnny77: That seems like it would be a software button then, yeah04:08

bioterrorbomonu|LT, is your network connection available to all users?05:05
bioterrorif you "right click" the network icon, you should see preferences05:05
bioterror"Edit connections"05:05
bomonu|LTbioterror: my desktop is frozen, that is the issue05:05
bioterrorare you using default ubuntu?05:06
bioterrorI dont have a GDM running so I'm just guessing: sudo gdmsetup05:07
bioterrorbut I'm off to work05:07
bioterroryou might also want to check some gdm.conf files for autologin05:07

tenachI get that too; i have to restart gdm multiple times for it to recognize the mouse.05:49
tenachit's annoying.05:49
bomonu|LTbut my keyring pw window keeps popping up05:49

bomonu|LTbioterror: ty for your help, i uninstalled 'gnome-do' and it is cured now05:54
bioterrorgnome-do is one of these horrible wannabe OS X docks?06:23
zkriesseI like Docky06:23
Cheri703I have heard such wonderful things about docks or gnome-do or various things, I guess I don't get it...can someone explain why they're wonderful?06:28
bioterrorbecouse Apple06:28
pleia2I don't think gnome-do has a dock, it's essentially a suite of keyboard shortcuts to launch little apps which "do" different things06:29
* bioterror actually has a dock on his desktop computers desktop06:31
Cheri703I think I could probably be doing things in a more streamlined manner, but...I get into habits06:31
pleia2I think gnome do is one of those things that has a learning curve, but once you get used to it you can't live without it :)06:32
bioterrorpleia2, I've managed to live almost 29 years without it :D06:32
bioterrorI think I can live another 29 years without it06:32
Cheri703friend of mine thought it was WONDERFUL, he has all kinds of crap set up, most of it isn't really useful for me I think. I (for shame) only use one workspace...06:33

ray_I cant remember it10:16
ray_I looked for where I put it10:17
ray_Better then installing from source, but what was it so when I install from source it will be removable in synaptic package manager?10:17
ray_I mean better when when installing from source to use this command?10:18
ray_I am used to:10:18
ray_"sudo make install"10:19
ray_but better so that "sudo make install" ends up being replaced, but I can't remember what it was10:20
ray_sudo check install, is that it?10:20
Synth_samyes, checkinstall10:21
Synth_samall one word10:21
Synth_samthen the package can be removed via sudo dpkg -r packagename10:22
ray_or synaptic package manager as well, right?10:23
ray_I should make note of what you said10:23
Synth_samjust checking10:23
Synth_samyes, appears that programs installed from deb packages are listed in synaptic10:24
ray_I don't know where I put the info someone handed to me about checkinstall so thank you very much10:24
Synth_samyou might have to install checkinstall first10:24
ray_I am reading this right now, well I just came back to look at what you posted10:24
ray_I will check10:25
ray_You were right, but it didn't take long to install. Maybe 2 or 3 seconds, LOL10:26
ray_I remember about a week or so ago doing sudo apt-get install checkinstall  and it was already installed, but I don't remember installing before someone told me about it.10:27
ray_That was on my other hard drive10:27
ray_Thank you very much dude. See you later.10:28
ray_I am looking for a deb package of D.O.G. which is frontend for DOSBox11:26
Synth_samcheckinstall didn't work, or this is something else?11:32
ray_I am just messing around11:33
ray_I decided to try meka with dosbox, but I got an error11:33
ray_hold on and I will find that error11:33
ray_Load error: no DPMI - Get csdpmi*b.zip11:34
ray_so I looked it up and D.O.G. is said to have what's needed to make it work11:34
Synth_samSays that it's windows software11:35
ray_Ya, o well11:35
ray_Well in this link:11:35
ray_At the bottom it says for linux11:36
ray_but I am not certain how to get this thing to run11:36
ray_I am looking at what the link says to do now11:36
Synth_samYeah, so DBGL is compatible with linux11:37
Synth_sambut D.O.G. is windows, according to the webpage11:37
ray_I must be misunderstanding this then11:38
ray_so it's the java version of dog then?11:38
ray_Where's the download link from there though?11:39
ray_I was there a couple of times11:39
Synth_sam"D.O.G. is developed for DOSBox 0.58 and up only for Windows"11:40
ray_must be my theme, give me a sec11:40
ray_Thank you. If I decide to go the linux route of using the java version, it says I need java installed, so I might try that after this depending on if this works11:42
ray_I tried using wine to run it then it asked where dosbox.exe was so I went to where I have a windows version located but it said there was a sharing violation11:49
Synth_samand DBGL doesn't work using java?11:49
Synth_samif you can get that to work, it should be much superior to using wine imho11:50
ray_Your question, um, Are you asking with that question, or telling me?11:51
Synth_samI asked if you had tried DBGL using java11:52
Synth_samthen stated that if it works, it would be better than using wine11:52
ray_How do I install the proper version, I am about to look into synaptic for java11:53
ray_I didn't read what was said at the very bottom of that link11:55
ray_where it says:Please use openJDK or Sun's Java Runtime as a workaround.11:56
ray_oops, that's not the bottom11:56
ray_sorry my theme is messing up what I see on google. SucksI like black background and white text with the clearlooks theme industrial11:58
ray_Just extract the archive to any dir and start dbgl.cmd (Windows), or dbgl.sh (Linux)12:06
ray_Mine is dbgl.jar12:06
Synth_samthere's nothing else in the archive?12:06
bioterrorjar is java12:07
bioterrorjava -jar dbgl.jar12:07
ray_but they said to start dbgl.sh12:08
ray_who right this?12:08
ray_I've java before12:08
rajuMan thats in linux12:08
rajuSh is in bash12:08
ray_some crazy rubik's cube java program I have laying around12:09
ray_There's no .sh file anywhere in the download I downloaded from there. I am just making my small point, no big deal12:09
ray_bash you say12:09
rajuOpen your terminal in linux and run the script12:10
rajuYou told me na you have some .sh12:10
ray_I've seen .sh everywhere. Now that makes sense12:11
rajuGot you man12:11
ray_Thank you for your input12:11
ray_I just tried openJDK on the java file earlier but it didn't work12:12
rajuSo do you have some jar file with you ?12:12
ray_I just also installed Sun's Java and I am about to try it12:12
ray_from here:12:13
ray_it says12:13
ray_Just extract the archive to any dir and start dbgl.cmd (Windows), or dbgl.sh (Linux). Mac users can simply drag the DBGL icon into their Applications folder and start it. Please note that you MUST have the Java Runtime Environment 1.5 (or higher) installed, it will not work without the JRE1.5, or with an older version. Moreover, java.exe should be in your path (or if you're running on Linux,...12:13
ray_.../usr/bin/java should be (a symbolic link) pointing to the 1.5 JVM).12:13
rajuThen bioterror gave the solution . Check last  previous logs12:13
ray_that's all I will flood sorry12:13
rajuOh mistake12:14

lordjjHey. Do I need to add a repo for gettext-dev, it's not being found with apt-get install15:26
lordjjsame for autoconf-1.9 ("autoconf" seems to work tho, is that the same?)15:26
duanedesignhello lordjj15:28
duanedesignlordjj: i do not think there is a gettext-dev15:31
lordjjduanedesign: here's what I need to do: http://www.wormux.org/phpboost/wiki/subversion15:32
duanedesignlordjj: i think there was a libgettext-dev (or something like) but now gettext package should install all need. There are some extra dev files related, but seems that they are ruby specific15:33
lordjjduanedesign: So installing gettext should do it?15:34

duanedesignlordjj: from what i can tell, yes, gettext package should be all you need15:38
lordjjduanedesign: Thanks15:38
lordjjduanedesign: as for autoconf-1.9, there are "autoconf" "autoconf2.13" and "autoconf2.5915:39
lordjjduanedesign: I would install all, but am afraid they may cause conflict or something15:39
duanedesignwhat verison of Ubuntu are yuou runing/15:41
lordjj10.04 LTS15:42
duanedesignibuclaw: if build instructions ask for autoconf-1.9, is it ok to just install the current autoconf available in the repos?15:43
duanedesignlordjj: i think iinstalling just 'autoconf' will be ok15:44
lordjjduanedesign: Ok, thanks for help.15:45
ibuclawduanedesign, 'autoconf' will install the latest version15:46
ibuclawthe others are prior versions.15:46
ibuclawalso, wouldn't it be automake-1.9 ?15:47
ibuclawor is this a really old configure script? :)15:47
lordjjibuclaw: It is this: http://www.wormux.org/phpboost/wiki/subversion15:49
ibuclawany music savvy folk in town btw?15:50
ibuclawlordjj, wormux... :315:51
* ibuclaw remembers that from a while back15:51
lordjjibuclaw: If I install all listed versions of autoconf, may any conflict occur?15:54
ibuclawlordjj, nope15:58
ibuclawknowing a thing or two at how package maintainers do this, it'll likely install in ie:15:59
lordjjok, I think I'll install both 2,65 and 2.13 since 2.65's description says: This version of autoconf is not compatible with scripts meant for15:59
lordjjAutoconf 2.13 or earlier.  If you need support for such scripts,15:59
lordjjyou must also install the autoconf2.13 package. says15:59

johnny77How can I obtain an IP address from my router, but not be able to ping it?21:43
charlie-tcaI can not remember how to do that.21:47
davidl_Johnny77:  did you figure it out?21:51
davidl_That's pretty wierd...  maybe if the subnet mask is setup in such a way that the router's ip is sitting on a different network.  ???  just a guess.21:52
johnny77davidl_: then how do I fix it? Also, I'm running a CLI right now.21:54
davidl_what do you see when you go an ifconfig?21:54
davidl_or #ifconfig eth021:55

UndiFineDjohnny77: icmp filtering blocks pings21:59
johnny77davidl_: I see a eth0 and some stuff, lo and some stuff, wlan0 and some stuff. can't copy paste anything specific you looking for?21:59
johnny77what is icmp filtering?21:59
UndiFineDthat can be done by iptables22:00
davidl_I think icmp is "Internet Control Message Protocol" or something22:00
davidl_eth0 is probably the interface you are concerned with22:01
* UndiFineD s/Control/Creative/22:01
davidl_do you know what the router should be giving out via dhcp?22:01
johnny77davidl_: actually I'm doing wireless so it's wlan0.22:01
davidl_Are you getting an address?22:02
davidl_here's what mine says when I type ifconfig22:02
johnny77davidl_: Yes, I have it set to give out dhcp. Also I figured it out. I haven't seen eth0 before so I killed dhclient, ifconfig eth0 down then ran dhclient wlan0 and it connected and pings.22:03
