irfaNHi, Reinstall with live cd after broke my bootloader. How can I test It will work or not ?00:00
battlehandsilovefairuz, can I add you to friends?00:00

d34dh4ckgot an odd question, I have two dual psx controller adapters ?(giving a total of 4 ports )00:01
battlehandswhat does -fr stand for?00:01
battlehandsis the remove command?00:01
Nighthawk``ilovefairuz, how can i see the log of linux when he starts, cause i think he wrote me "unable to load 3d acceleration"..00:02
d34dh4ckthese adapters are mounted internally and conected to a usb header on the mother board, i want to set udev rules to make them js0-3 statically so i can set up game sto allways use the correct controller00:02
ilovefairuzbattlehands: -f means force removal (of non empty directories contained inside) and -r means work recursively00:02
battlehandsilovefairuz, I tried that command, but it deleted the whole folder.00:02
ilovefairuzbattlehands: then you missed the /* at the very end of the command00:02
d34dh4ckproblem is that since they are dual adapters they only have one usb address, any way to get around this limitation for setting the udev rules?00:02

linxehacovrig: I havent done it for a long time, but I think you should be able to set it to just let www-data run your script as root (which you chown to own as root so nobody can edit it), and have the script do the mounting00:31
Champagneth3Unk0wn: there would be a swap partition, a boot partittion, and a data partition.  I always take the suggested layout.00:31

Aikaris there a command that simulates activity that will prevent ubuntu from suspending due to inactivity? i want to write a script to run every 1 minute that checks if Samba is currently active, and if so, prevent sleep00:33

manoot-homethanks crimson figured as much just don't have much experience with debian/ubuntu. mostly CentOS00:39
pac1th3Unknown,  with very large hard drives, putting most of linux in one partition is probably what you want to do.00:40
Aikarmanoot-home: as a dev id prolly suggest 10.10, isnt LTS locked to only security updates? 10.10 will give you more up to date apps00:40
pac1however there are some exceptions.00:40
davidstraussviolinappren, I added this (http://pastie.org/1630777) to my limits.conf file, but I still get 1024 for ulimit -n00:40
th3Unkn0wnpac1: k thanks00:40
acovriglinxeh: sadly that didn't work, any other ideas?00:41
pac1I always put home on a separate partition.  That way I can switch between distributions or versions of linux without losing all my stuff.00:41
Champagneth3Unk0wn: OK. I think the swap partition is equal to the RAM size.  The boot partition is 5031 blocks.  I don't know how to translate blocks to GB00:41
ChampagneGreat idea00:41
Locutus_of_BorgIsn't there a command line argument that causes a continuously updating reading on the command? Like, if I wanted to continuously watch the output of the command "sensors", how would I do that?00:41

pac1dejan_  there's two approaches.  1 Reinstall after saving the files you want to keep, making partitions for linux, home and swap  2 resizing the partition you have to be smaller and creating home and swap from the reduction.00:48

pac1Lucky, you have LVM on your disks00:55
LuckySMackDroidI'm thinking it should be the one I have highlighted that says loader. But I want to make sure. This is my first time using a raid.00:55
Aikarcrimsonmane: interesting. i just found theres a gnome-screensaver-command --poke that simulates user activity. so ima combine that with another script i found to check for samba access, and simply poke anytime samba is active. ill post to my blog when i get it working00:55
pac1Lucky, anything on that raid that you can't do without?00:56
LuckySMackDroidPac1. Lol yea I know. And I'm not sure. When setting up they raid I didn't see lvm mentioned anywhere.00:56
pac1LVM is what linux uses for the same purpose.00:57
pac1if you boot into the alternate install disk, lvm and raid support will be avialble.00:57
pac1There's a utility for examining lvm partitions.00:57
pac1not sure you can boot the alt install disk though.00:58
LuckySMackDroidOk. I'm using the normal live ce to install. And the raid was setup with a hardware raid card using a raid boos.00:58
pac1lucky, I"m not sure about the distinction of Hardware RAid and LVM partitioning.  THey might not be the same thing.00:59
LuckySMackDroidOk so then there's not much I an Don I need the although dvd then00:59

Crayboff2I'm afraid i completely broke my computer, I'm installing ubuntu 10.10 from the live CD, it got to the "Who are you?" phase, the loading bar was going and everything was fine. There is 1/5 left of the loading bar and it's not loading anymore.01:22
LuckySMackto reload the rc file01:22
ScuniziLuckySMack: that I know just starts another job for bash.. at least that's what I've been told in the past01:23

Crayboff2I pressed back and forward back to this page, but all it changed was the message above the "Waiting for you" or whatever it said and is now saying "Getting the time from the network time server..."01:23
rwwLuckySMack: that doesn't reload the rc file in the current bash instance, it makes a new bash child process of the current one.01:23

mycosysLuckySMack just make sure u put grub on the same drive as windows or u will have to change boot device to go between them01:24
Scunizirww: looks like .bash_aliases is 311 ie rw-r--r--01:24
LuckySMackwell i installed windows first. and right now ubuntu is not installed yet. thats what im trying to do now.01:25
LuckySMackmycosys: yea i tried that first and when i rebooted it went right past grub apparently and loaded windows. windows is on a raid1 disk01:25
=== carvas is now known as heisenberg
crimsonmanehow do i do "chmod +x /path/to/file" for something on a different drive? private messages accepted. thanks in advance.01:25
mycosyscould do it the other way - put grub on the normal disk and let it load windows, set that ununtu to boot01:26
LuckySMackmycosys: so just install grub to the base disk that ubuntu will be installed on? wouldnt that bypass windows entirely?01:27
mycosysnot if it detects windows during the install01:27
scarleocrimsonmane: just enter path to the other disk01:28
mycosysgrub will load windows01:28
LuckySMackand wouldnt that make it where on boot i have to go to the boot order and chose the drive to boot to?01:28
mycosysyes01:28
crimsonmanescarleo:  i don't understand.01:28
heisenberghi! i have an intel mac and i want to install ubuntu on my external drive. i've read around and didnt find any final solution. can anyone help me?01:28
mycosyseasier to use grub to choose imo01:28
LuckySMackmycosys: i thought to do that i had to install grub alongside windows MBR01:28
mycosysno01:28
scarleocrimsonmane: is it internal hd?01:29

Craybot2LuckySMack: Sorry my internet died01:29
mycosysgrub happily loads windows01:29
crimsonmane2 drives, both internal. one has windows (and my games) the other is linux01:29

mycosyswhether grub is on its own partition or in mbr01:29
BlueSherpais there a way to install the latest version of ruby on ubuntu?  it defaulted to 1.8.701:30
scarleocrimsonmane: ok, so it's probably /dev/sdb1 if this is your second disk. You can du sudo fdisk -l to see the disks01:30
crimsonmanewhat is the command to back up a directory?01:30
scarleocrimsonmane: or wherever you have mounted the disk01:30
crimsonmanei mean go backwards one directory01:30
LuckySMackok so, normally when i do this (before i used a raid) i installed grub to the MBR and it all worked. so (to make sure) now that i have a raid i can just install grub in the same drive im installing ubuntu to, it will still see i have windows. so i change the boot drive to the ubuntu drive and ill have the grub menu with windows as another option.01:30
someones1how can i mount a degraded raid1 array when the remaining drive has lost its superblocks and my attempts to recreate it gives me an error that "/dev/sda1 is too small: 0k" ?01:30
mycosysBlueSherpa check launchpad01:31
LuckySMackok, so wherever grub is, is just where i have to set the default boot drive to01:31
BlueSherpamycosys: what's launchpad?01:31
LuckySMackCraybot2: ?01:31
mycosys!launchpad |BlueSherpa01:31

LuckySMack Craybot2 the partition you did, was there a lot of data on it?01:35
psusiunresolved, system -> administration -> disk utility, or sudo hdparm -i from the command line01:35
Craybot2Lucky: i have a lot of data on my windows partition, well like 60GB01:35
Craybot2or so01:35
Craybot2but this ubuntu partition is new01:36

Craybot2literally just made01:36
LuckySMackwas it stuck in the partition setup? cause im thinking it may still just be moving files so it has room to make the partitions01:36

LuckySMackok.01:36
scarleocrimsonmane: is it mounted?01:36
crimsonmanepsusi:  i do not understand!01:36

Craybot2in the most recent setup, you decide on your partition, then it's doing some stuff as you fill in user name info etc01:36

LuckySMackCraybot2: ok so. you have one single drive. which had a lot of data already. you let ubuntu make the partition and now its taking a while. even though its moved on. i think its moving data on the HDD01:38
crimsonmaneok i did "df"... looks like it says "/media/win64" ... how do i get to it?01:38

Craybot2Lucky: ok possible, so what should I do? the text that was above the loading bar said "Ready when you are..." or something like that01:39
psusicrimsonmane, then you typed it wrong.. it's case sensitive.  win64 is not the same as WIN6401:39

Koala_which is why im installing using the alternate install cd to begin with02:03
Crayboffhey lucky! it's me craybot202:03
Luckysmackok that didnt work02:03
gimpy1937Crayboff: So you are installing right now and you watch to set up paritions?02:03
Luckysmackhey02:03
silentz0rKoala_: Maybe windows is f'd up? :)02:03
Koala_should i try booting from the disc again?02:03
Crayboffgimpy i already created one partition (unless the auto made multiple)02:04
LuckysmackSo i installed grub to the partition i installed ubuntu to, and it didnt pick up windows. I tried booting directly from that disk and nothing ever loads. when booting to my windows disk it loads normally wit hno grub.02:04
Koala_i dont really know what my next move is02:04
silentz0rKoala_: what are you trying to achieve? Installing ubuntu inside windows (slower) or dual booting?02:04
Koala_i wanted to dual boot02:04
Koala_i created a partition02:04
Koala_and installed it02:04
Koala_using the alternate disc02:04
FloodBot3Koala_: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.02:04
axillafirst time ubuntu user.. is there a way to set hotkeys in Ubuntu for applications?02:04
gimpy1937Crayboff: Nope, the only creates one big one for your root mount (that is /), are you saying you want to change it after the install so that /home or whatever is seperate?02:05
axillalike i want to set CTRL+T to Terminal.02:05
Craybofflucky: how do i select the partition it made the first time i do this02:05
Koala_and GRUB works fine. it just refuses to do anything after i log in02:05
silentz0rKoala_: I still don't get what you mean by alternative cd. There's just one ubuntu installer02:05
silentz0rKoala_: Just different editions (server-netbook etc.)02:06
Crayboffgimpy: here's what happened. i went through the normal auto partitioner, but the installation hung up. so i restarted my computer and i want to install on the partitions that where already made02:06
gimpy1937silentz0r: There is a desktop, server, and alternate CD....02:06
Koala_alternate is a text based install but it should include a GUI02:06
Koala_only the install should be text based02:06
acetolinehi guys, I know this is an extremely stupid question, but I installed maverick and now whenever I want to execute something from the command line it says 'no such file or directory'02:07
Starminnacetoline: The file or directory doesn't exist.02:07
goldeneyehello, I installed ubuntu 10.10 but when i connect to my external monitor, the display shows up fine - but as soon as i start typing something on keyboard, the first key stroke just makes the screen to flicker and switches back to laptop. Any idea what is going on? thanks.02:07
gimpy1937Crayboff: Alirght, when going through the install, tell it you want to do custom parititions. Where are you having trouble, I'm not getting what you are stuck on.02:07
acetolineStarminn, it does02:07
silentz0rKoala_: And why did you choose that over the original desktop edition?02:07
acetolineI'm %100 sure, because chmod +x <filename> works02:07
Crayboffi'm at the custom partition page and i dont want to break it02:08
Crayboffgoddammit he quit :(02:08
Koala_because the iso refused to write02:08
[segfault]acetoline: if the file you are trying to run is in the same directory and executable, make sure you put ./ before it02:08
acetoline[segfault], yes I know02:08
[segfault]acetoline: ok, so any command does that?  if so, check your path.02:09
Crayboffcan some one please help me navigate this custom partition page in the installer?02:09
Koala_it would make it through the burn and then the verification would fail02:09
acetolineI have an executable called NetAccountS, and I cd into it's directory and do ./NetAccountS and it says 'bash: ./NetAccountS: No such file or directory'02:09
acetolinewhich is a blatant lie02:09
acetolinealso, $sh ./NetAccountS doesn't work either02:10
StarminnCrayboff: What are you trying to do?02:10
acetolinenobody has heard of this error before?02:10
sougataacetoline, please paste a ls -l of that directory02:11
Crayboffstarminn: ok so i tried using the auto partitioner, but installation stopped part the way through and wouldnt let me keep going. so i restarted the computer and i want to install it on the partition that was already made02:11
silentz0rKoala_: Tried re-downloading?02:11
Crayboffi dont want to mess somethingvital up02:11
silentz0rthe .iso may have been corrupted after you downloaded it or timed out or god knows what02:11
acetoline[segfault], trust me, that file is there ($chmod +x NetAccountS works)02:11
Lord_Magusgood evening02:12
Koala_i tried several times and it never worked02:12
acetoline[segfault], I'm typing from my laptop right now so I can't post a ls -l02:12
StarminnCrayboff: Alright, so what does the custom partitioner show? (Also to be noted, are you dual-booting? If so, I wound up having ot defrag and CHKDSK Windows before it let me install Ubuntu)02:12
[segfault]acetoline: yes, i believe you.  I think sougata was just wanting us to see everything for ourselves02:12
goldeneyehello, I installed ubuntu 10.10 but when i connect to my external monitor, the display shows up fine - but as soon as i start typing something on keyboard, the first key stroke just makes the screen to flicker and switches back to laptop. Any idea what is going on? thanks.02:13
acetolinecould this possibly be an issue with my ~/.bashrc02:13
Lord_Magusanyone could help me with a screen resolution? ubuntu doesn't show the real resolution for my monitor. 1280x1024. I've tried to modify x.conf but it doesn't work. I have a Nvidia 9600gt video card02:14
axillawow02:14
[segfault]acetoline: do you have any problems executing other files in your home directory?02:14
Crayboffstar: i'm dualbooting, now there are: /dev/sda1 (fat32), /dev/sda2/(ntfs), /dev/sda5(ext4), /dev/sda6(swap)02:14
Koala_can you perhaps solve the "permission denied" error I get when downloading the traditional way02:15

scarleoacetoline: did you try with sudo? Also what kind of file is this?02:21
Bogus8_Ummm... is mdadm broken?02:21

Bogus8_this page https://wiki.ubuntu.com/ReliableRaid  says that it has some serious problems if I'm reading it correctly... 4 says that the notification system isn't working?!?!02:21
acetolinescarleo, yes, $sudo ./NetAccountS gives: sudo: ./NetAccountS: command not found02:21
Crayboffstarminn: also what do i select for bootloader? the same partition or the big one /dev/sda?02:21
StarminnCrayboff: IT's already formatted as ext4 which is *perfect*. All you've got to do now is set the mount point as "/" (a slash)02:22
scarleoacetoline: and I suppose you are in the same directory as the file?02:22
Lord_Magus[thor], the maximum resolution detected was 1360x76802:22
berany one?02:22

StarminnCrayboff: Just double-check everything. Your ext4 partition should have a mount point of "/", the size of the partitions are measured in MB, and your swap should of course be mount point os "swap area"02:24
Lord_Magus[thor], i don't know what's going on. i tried to use xrandr but it didn't work02:24

Koala_Hello everybody. I initially installed with alternate install disk and the GUI wouldnt work. i reattempted the traditional wubi install and it worked. my question: how to remove the old partition and faulty install from earlier?02:38
sougatathen you can just do the same there02:38

xxx__i am trying to run proxychains but i get this error: Can't locate proxychains.conf: Permission denied, but /etc/proxychains.conf exists02:41
Koala_well what happens now is i boot to GRUB and select windows as opposed to faulty installs. this then prompts me with windows or ubuntu. after selecting ubuntu i get no wubildr02:41
nit-witKoala_, you have grub as the menu at boot and only have windows with a wubi correct?02:43
nit-witKoala_, you have the miss-install as well in a partition02:43
Koala_missinstall is in the partition02:44
Koala_yes02:44

JasonnTheShaman: I am looking for something that looks good too, or at least not TERRIBLE02:47
linusasus6Hi something wrong in this grub.cfg http://paste.ubuntu.com/575282/   , I got only Ubuntu, Debian on sdc and windows on sda02:47
TheShamanlooks and functional is fine for me but whatever works for ya02:47

TheShamananyone use cannon dslr to shoot video?  how good is it?  can you shoot for 30 min?02:48

nit-witjasonn; yes and I'm helping this user get the mbr correct to run ubuntu.02:48
ChogyDanlinusasus6: did you just install debian?02:48
TheShamanno i gave up on the kde/gnome wars, i like blackbox better than all of this02:48
Jasonnnit-wit: ah - anyhow, you know of a good IRC client for ubuntu?02:48
gratnam11whats the default username and password02:48
Jasonntheshaman: what is blackbox?02:48
linusasus6no Ive update02:49
FluttershyJasonn: XChat for GUI, WeeChat or irssi otherwise02:49
TheShamanexactly.. or twm if you cant get blackbox02:49
nit-witjasonn; this one I guess you can look through te list.02:49
ChogyDanlinusasus6: it shows ubuntu, then windows vista, then windows 7, then fedora02:49
[segfault]Jasonn: Yes, xchat here also, though seamonkey has an irc client if you like all-in-one apps.02:49
Jasonnfluttershy: WeeChat is through terminal? I am looking for one with a good GUI - i dont like the look of xChat02:49
FluttershyJasonn: yes it is02:50
nit-witKoala_, I'm not real familiar with wubi, what made you try a alternative install rather then a live cd.02:50
TheShamanblackbox is like twm but looks a bit better, but heck.. ii used DEC windows managers in bw so... i dont need it to look all nice02:50
ChogyDanJasonn: try pidgin02:50
FluttershyPidgin's IRC is pretty bad02:50
Jasonn[segfault] i am looking for something windows-like02:50
Koala_live cd wouldnt burn02:50
TheShamandigital unix RuLeZ02:50
linusasus6ya windows vista is the reintaller partition, it mean if you choose this you reinstall windows 702:50
Fluttershythough as are pretty much all IM clients' IRC02:50
[segfault]Jasonn: You can run mIRC under Wine, I suppose...02:50
Jasonnchogydan: works for IRC too?02:50
ChogyDanJasonn: yep, it is what I use02:51
TheShamanwhats wrong with x-chat? seems to work02:51
FluttershyI can't really think of a better GUI client than XChat02:51
Jasonn[segfault] can i get a keygen to work under wine too?02:51
nit-witKoala_, so right now if grub is the boot menu as soon as you remove that borked install nothnf will boot until you reload the MS bootloader.02:51
[segfault]Jasonn: probably, but that's another subject02:51
FluttershyI wouldn't like relying on wine to run anything I intend on having running for extended periods of time02:52
Jasonn[segfault] have you used konversation?02:52
xxx__anyone know why im getting this error with proxychains if there is /etc/proxychains? error: Can't locate proxychains.conf: Permission denied02:52
TheShamannever had good results with wine myself02:52
FluttershyKonversation looks pretty good but I dislike using KDE apps in gnome02:52
[segfault]Fluttershy: <---- good advice.   Jasonn: no, have not.02:53
mrdebuntuwhat is new in the new kernel update to lucid lynx?02:53
JasonnTheShaman: i hate wine, i just use it to run a few progs, other than that, i have a laptop with windows 702:53
JasonnFlutterShy: but you CAN use KDE apps in gnome?02:53
TheShamanvmware player if you *have* to run windows apps02:53
linusasus6@ChogyDan ya windows vista is the reintaller partition, it mean if you choose this you reinstall windows 7 so what02:53
FluttershyJasonn: of course02:53
TheShamanvmware player is nice02:53
Fluttershythey just look/behave slightly different02:53
ChogyDanlinusasus6: are you on ubuntu now?02:53
linusasus6@ChogyDan I'm on the livecd02:54
Fluttershyalso you'd have to run KDE libs which uses more CPU resources02:54
Jasonn[segfault] do you know if i can run a proxy from my server>02:54
ChogyDanlinusasus6: why?02:54
TheShamanwhats the best music player for ubuntu? i dont really like theone it comes with02:54

JasonnOne more thing, in xubuntu, do you know how i can put a shortcut to an application on my desktop?02:54

b0g4nk1d@cmanns you might need to pull the USB drive out of the port then plug it in again03:23

duongthaihauhm that's hard05:10
rwwB|ackPanther: ah. I don't know about git, but if it's using ssh or gnupg, you can't reset the passwords to those keys.05:10
glitchdWiesshund, so how would i do this?05:10
Ry4anB|ackPanther: that sounds like like a ssh key.  You'll need to generate a new keypair and set the public key on the server if you've forgotten it.05:10

ferzanor just backtrack :)05:11
rwwB|ackPanther: depends on what it's using. Ask #git if nobody here knows the specifics.05:11
Ry4anB|ackPanther: you can create a new one with ssh-keygen, but you probably followed directions on a specific hosting site initially (github?) and if so you should follow them again.05:11

chaosrSkullTraill, then do TAB to get a list of drives05:15
SkullTraillok then?05:15
Wiesshundglitchd er, better advice is restart so the hung process can just release the lock, probably not a great idea to just start rm ing stuff05:15
glitchdWiesshund, yup that worked now my system is installing updates05:15
chaosrSkullTraill, then add ", TAB to get a list of partition05:16

skulltraillchaosr, it says BOOTMRG is missing05:21
cbilljonesloshki yes please, if you can05:21
Loshkicbilljones: ok, well if you want to use "vncviewer localhost:3", your ssh command should probably be: "ssh -L 5903:localhost:5903 user@computer". vnc uses ports counting from 5900 so screen 3 is at 5903. Does this help at all?05:23

skulltraillDayum.05:26

armencechaosr, :( How about just getting /dev/audio without removing alsa?05:29
chaosrarmence, however there is alsa-oss modules to act as a compatibility layer05:29
Loshkicbilljones: First, can you run vncviewer on the server?05:30
chaosrarmence, ok so if I get you correctly you want to be able to access the sound card through /dev/audio ?05:31

cbilljonesloshki: couldnt tell from that, is there another way?05:35
cbilljonesi think i had to many connections and didnt see all05:36
Loshkicbilljones: Try netstat -an | egrep 590 to see fewer lines (note: I've added a zero at the end)05:37
cbilljonesloshki: running vncviewer localhost:3 informs me i am on port 590305:37
cbilljonesloshki:  netstat -an | egrep 590 shows connections on 5900-590305:38
Loshkicbilljones: that's good, but what you want to see is a netstat line like this: tcp        0      0 0.0.0.0:5903            0.0.0.0:*               LISTEN05:38

myradlifehow do i create a symbolic link of /my/original/files/* to /link/directory/ and work on all the files in /my/original/files/ ?07:03
jefimenkoGnea: why not if you have two?07:03
Gneasara2010: I didn't see that to begin with, all I saw was "I'm trying to install samba and it doesn't work"07:04
Gneajefimenko: so you can kill them faster?07:04
jefimenkoGnea: how will it kill them faster?07:04
sara2010Gnea,   i paste all  error ...07:05
Gneasara2010: try this:  apt-get -f install07:05
jefimenkoGnea: if they are aligned properly then it should be the same lifetime, no?07:05
Gneajefimenko: well, you could do that, but would you add a swap partition to it?07:06
jefimenkoGnea: no, i have 8GB of ram07:06
ctphi folks. anyone has a hint how to add apps to auto start in unity?07:07
jefimenkoGnea: should i not have a swap partition at all? i was considering still keeping a small one, but setting /proc/sys/vm/swappiness to 007:07
jefimenkoGnea: so it would only use swap if absolutely necessary07:08

dejan_so I guess problem is with the router since my laptop is 2 -3 years old is pretty new model from hp08:19
SirCaneto transmit any data on a network, or even try to connect to one, you need to have a mac address08:19
dejan_on the other hand wireless router is pretty old08:19
mickster04guest3443: did you do an md5 sum on the iso08:20
dejan_so I guess wireless networking is very weak but in that field wpa is most secure08:20
yayoj1yes08:20
dejan_but unfortunately I can't get it working :S08:20
mickster04dejan_: wpa208:20
SirCanewpa is secure as you'll get08:20
Chousukewhich is not very secure08:20
dejan_i am not sure if it is wpa or wpa2 on the router it says just wpa tkip preshared key08:20
mickster04SirCane: wpa208:20
Chousukebut good enough for most purposes08:20
guest3443mickster04, no, but taking in consideration that I've tried about 3 kinds of iso that would be very unlikely.08:20
dejan_also i have wpa radious on my router option but i don't know what that means08:21
mickster04guest3443: do it. you'd be surprised08:21
jasonmchristosdejan_:  that is wpa08:21
jasonmchristoswpa2 is aes afaik08:21
SirCaneif you have a busy network, or the attacker has enough time wireless networks are as open as a glass window with a theif who has bricks to hand08:21
ethereticHello!! Need assistance to make Ubuntu completely ignore a WD Smartware partition occupying /dev/sr0 - it messes up the cd/dvd writer. Anyone? URGENT.08:21
ChousukeI suppose if you're really paranoid you could connect to a VPN server over wireless08:21
jasonmchristosdejan_: radius is a way to modulate encryption keys i wouldnt mind having that myself08:21
mickster04jasonmchristos: wpa2 != aes i think you'll find08:22
yayoj1guest3443: I think there is an issue with the hardware you are using with the version of Ubuntu you are using.08:22
dejan_but its asking for ip address and port i am not sure what to put there08:22
dejan_jasonmchristos08:22
SirCaneChousuke if you were really paranoid you wouldn't use wireless for vpn due to man in the middle attacks08:22
guest3443yayoj1, solution?08:22
guest3443yayoj1, and why do you think so?08:22
ChousukeSirCane: well you could mitigate those by using key auth I suppose.08:23
yayoj1guest3443: try using the latest lts release08:23
mickster04SirCane: if he is using both wireless security and a vpn, he would be sensibly safe?08:23
jasonmchristosdejan_: that is offtopic but you may msg me08:23
dejan_ok thanks jasonmchristos apritiated08:23
dejan_i will try google first if no sucess i will08:23
guest3443yayoj1,  Shit, I have a deadline of 3h to do so, I can't make blank shots.08:24
yayoj1guest3443: that is ubuntu 10.0408:24
SirCanemickster04 to a degree, but if you're going to get attacked by someone who wants to gain access to a wpa2 network then you shouldn't trust the wireless network at all08:24
zdsfhi , i have just installed lamp to ubuntu, when i enter localhost to address bar , it works, but when i create project with netbeans, it don't run08:24

jasonmchristosmartin8412:  search the ubunto docs for bridging08:25

yayoj1I can't know the exact solution as I don't know what you are working with.08:26

shijie!who>gaelfx08:52
ubottugaelfx, please see my private message08:52
gaelfxshijie: it's always better to install the drivers that ubuntu suggests, since when you update, ubuntu knows how to keep them updated with everything else. If you use the drivers from nvidia, it might work now, but once you get a kernel update, you will have to install them again08:53
shijieI also installed the recommended driver from ubuntu, it freezed upon logging08:53
gaelfxdejan__: does ubuntu recognize your wireless card?08:54
shijiegaelfx:08:54
dejan__yes i can connect to netwroks only without WPA :S thats why i need mac address to set my router to block acces from other mac addresses and I wil lset wep to protect my netwrok :S08:54
gaelfxdejan__: hang on08:55
dejan__ok thanks08:55
gaelfxdejan__: if you right-click network manager applet in the panel, and check the connection information, it should tell you the MAC address, it calls it the hardware address08:56
gaelfxshijie: did the drivers ever work, or is this a fresh install?08:56

mickster04_skpl: well maybe it's the keyring password you want? that might be different09:22
dtrf4837mickster04 do you mean i might as well not bother with the password if i have to write them down or if both the login password and admin password are going to be the same?09:23
_skplmickster04: would the keyring passwod be the same as my login?09:23
mickster04dtrf4837: if you write them down, probable security risk imo09:23
mickster04_skpl: not neccesarily09:23
dtrf4837looks like _skpl is having the same problem i'm having?09:23
_skplmickster04: i never set a keyring password09:23
mickster04_skpl: it's whatever you chose it to be when you first logged in09:24
_skplmickster04: this started happening after i deleted the original user and added a different on cuz my computer was crashing09:24
mickster04_skpl: uhm that original user's password will probably be the admin password eh?09:24
mickster04_skpl: you'll notice i said one user, not multiple users...if you are not adimn, you will not have the required access09:25
_skplmickster04: i set a root password using 'sudo passwd root"09:26
mickster04_skpl: oh dear09:26
mickster04_skpl: then you stlil need to be the root user to use that password09:26
mickster04_skpl: there shouldn't be a root user really09:27
_skpli used it at the passwd prompt for update maneger and it worked. i guess i will just have to remember twop passwds09:27
mickster04_skpl: there should be simply users that have root access09:27
mickster04!visudo | _skpl09:27
mickster04_skpl: either look into adding your user to the sudoers list properly next time09:28
mickster04_skpl: that said you will still need the main admin password09:28
_skpli di add my user properly09:28
_skpli used visudo09:28
mickster04_skpl: well then your user password should work?09:29
_skplit doesnt09:29
_skpl:(09:29
mickster04:( indeed09:29
mickster04hummmm09:29
_skplit only asks me for the root passwd when i try to unlock login settings and update maneger, and probably synaptic though i have not tried that yet09:30
mickster04_skpl: yeah, i am starting to think a reinstall may be in order, how old is this install? which ubuntu is it?09:30
_skplubuntu 10.10 its only a couple days old09:31
k_89 /msg NickServ identify charizard09:31
k_89fuclk09:31
syrinx_lol09:31
DJonesk_89: Password change time :)09:31
mickster04_skpl: how did you forget the password in a couple of days, and why did you change the user? and how was it starting to break?09:31
k_89how09:31
mickster04k_89: i think you identify then run password new password09:32
_skplmickster04: i forgot how it broke but i wass getting a massge about ice-authority09:32
_skpli couldnt get into my desktop09:32
_skplso i made a new user and deleted the one that install created09:32
mickster04_skpl: also after two days a new install isn't going to lose you much time?09:33
_skpli gave the user all the priveleges09:33
mickster04_skpl: uhm how?09:33
mickster04ifif you couldn't get into ur pc?09:33
DJonesk_89: Once you've identified to nickserv You can reset your password. However, you must first identify to nickserv using the existing password. Once you have identified, simply type /msg nickserv set password $newpass.09:33
_skplmickster04: users and groups, and even added the user to the sdoers file09:33
mickster04_skpl: but if you couldn't log in?09:34
dtrf4837is there any advantage in choosing 'specifiy partitions manually (advanced)' instead of 'erase and use the entire disk' when i dont have any data on the hdd?09:34
_skpli can login, its just i find it odd that ubuntu asks for a root pw when supposedly one does n ot exits09:34
k_89thnx09:34
k_89lol09:34
olitk_89,  use some good passwords09:34
_skplmickster04: so i simply created a root passwd and will use that when it asks for root pw09:35
mickster04draven_sol_: in my case, i dont use swap as i never hibernate, an i have 16GB ram so i didn't need that, an i am ok having everything on the same partition as i have to special data on there09:35
mickster04dtrf4837: in my case, i dont use swap as i never hibernate, an i have 16GB ram so i didn't need that, an i am ok having everything on the same partition as i have to special data on there09:35
mickster04draven_sol_: oops wrong nick09:35
mickster04_skpl: i still dont understand why you needed the second user if the first one still works?09:35
phoenixsamprashelp!! how to move launchy a bit to the top, so doesnt overlap with the bottom bar?09:35
DJonesdtrf4837: The advantage of specifying manually is that you can create a seperate partition for /home so that if you ever have to reinstall, you don't lose your user data (that option might be included within the use whole disk but its not something I've tried)09:36
olitphoenixsampras, right click properties and move it top and then do same move it bottom09:36
_skplmickster04: the first one didnt work,. thats why id eleted it09:37
_skplmickster04: if i only have on hd, can i format that drive using gparted live?09:37
mickster04_skpl: but how did you create a new user if you couldn't log into it?09:37
_skplmickster04: recovery console09:37
mickster04_skpl: you wouldn't need to, just run the installer and it can format it at time of installation, saves you time09:38

DJonesdtrf4837: In that case, other than the opportunity to have a seperate /home partition, there would be no other benefit that I'm aware of09:41

Wiesshunddoes the new grub that came with 10.10 no longer use like 40_custom or the debain theme file or 00_header etc? I am making changes to these but its like they are simply ignored or not used13:33
DJones!grub2 | Wiesshund13:33
ubottuWiesshund: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub213:33
ActionParsnipWiesshund: are you running: sudo update-grub   after the change?13:33
ruanok i got a theme, how do i open a .colors file with kde?13:33
WiesshundActionParsnip yes i am13:33
ruani'd try to read kde's settings, but it's unreadable13:34
karlaWiesshund, do you still have the shebang line and tail command, since those  files aren't included verbatim in the final config13:36
WiesshundActionParsnip when i did the 10.10 upgrade i seemed to have gotten a newer grub also 1.98-2... rather than 1.97-....., and it seems to just ignore anything in etc/grub.d13:36
chiiiiizActionParsnip: It works fine!! Thanks13:37
Wiesshundkarla im using the same files from etc/grub.d that i had prior, but its not making use of them, was there a change?13:37
ActionParsnipchiiiiiz: awesome13:37
ActionParsnipchiiiiiz: you could make a script for it too, which accepts the iso file as an arguement13:37
Wiesshundkarla file begins with #!/bin/sh -e (thats what you are asking correct?)13:38

awijHello, please I need some help with icon theme customization.14:42
chaosc[TK]D-Fender: Well, I have a 30GB SSD. My problem is that after all the updates and whatnot, I have very little space left. So I'm looking for a solution of yeah, installing the OS on my SSD and then doing all of my downloads, updates, etc, onto my 500GB14:43
Lintjgeli, is it executable?14:43
jgeliyes14:43
[TK]D-Fenderchaosc: Well you can tell your APPS to save onto that drive directly... or can jsut move your /home folder to that drive.14:43
[TK]D-Fenderchaosc: This is extremely common as a layout choice14:44
chaosc[TK]D-Fender: wouldn't system updates still be being applied to the SSD?14:44
[TK]D-Fenderchaosc: Again, it isn't your OS that is going to break 30GB, its your DATA14:44
[TK]D-Fenderchaosc: go look at the size of your /home folder14:45

chaosc[TK]D-Fender: I don't have a lot of applications or anything, very minimalist. It's my updates that killed me.14:46
[TK]D-Fenderchaosc: Odd.. check with baobab as to where it's getting eaten up14:46
g0tchais there a way to give permission to a directory so 2 users can modify it?14:47
awijHF_acid : i'm trying to replace folders icons by another theme ones, but only folder icons14:47
xzcvczxchaosc: then you could make a file based fs on your 500gb and mount that where ever its being used14:47

llutz_why do people think jumping around in the filesystem is a good thing? use pathes and avoid having "." in $PATH14:50
erUSULg0tcha: maybe it is because of permissions in parent folder? did you "log out / log in" so the new groups take effect?14:50
HF_acidawij: I'm afraid I don't have much experience with theme customization and am unfortunately not in front of my linux box, I'm attempting to search for a solution via google, I'll let you know if I find anything14:50
xzcvczxllutz_: who thinks thats a good thing?14:50
psusillutz_: you shouldn't need to use paths since whatever you are running should already be on $PATH... you don't want . there because it's a security risk... you cd to someone else's directory and try to run a common command, and bam, you're running a trojan they left there for you14:51
llutz_xzcvczx:all you guys prepending a pointless "cd /somewhere" to a command ;)14:51
llutz_psusi: don't tell that to me...14:51
xzcvczxllutz_: fine then..... du -sh /*14:51
xzcvczxhappy :P14:51
llutz_xzcvczx: imho its bad habit to cd wild around (see psusi why), but unfortunately very common14:52
g0tchaerUSUL, i did log out and log in again yes. btw, this is the /var/www directory that im trying to give permission to. ive installed it using my main desktop user, and now i created a second user to give it access there14:52
g0tchaso i use the second user as a "web user" only and dont have to mix with the main account14:53
[TK]D-Fenderpsusi: He didn't specify the path to the app... he simply didn't pass the target path to the app.. it's not like it would execute anything differently14:53
erUSULg0tcha: the usual procedire is to create www-data group and add users there then change the group of to www-data /var/www/14:53
psusillutz_: there is no reason not to other than why type two lines instead of one.  I think you misunderstood what I said...14:54
g0tchaerUSUL, so i add "new-user" to www-data group and not to the group of the main user?14:54
g0tchacuz ls -la shows the group owner as the main user14:54

darkenvyyou know the aanswer though dont you :)14:57
darkenvyinit.d?14:57
psusillutz_: the only reason not to is to save keystrokes... and if you plan on doing multiple commands in the target directory, then you save more by cding there first than passing the path to each command14:57
ruanwhy is my computer showing an unmounted iso?14:58
llutz_psusi: just to minimize the risk of doing something unwanted. stay here and read how many people deleted wrong dirs/files because they didn't realize where in the filesystem they were14:58

[segfault]darkenvy: There is no xorg.conf by default in 10.10, but you can make one and add anything you need to it if your monitor needs some custom setup.15:00
HF_acidawij: I'm having trouble finding specifics but it seems that you may be able to extract elements from both themes and then mix and match them in a new custom one. see http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/850244-mix-n-matching-icons-from-different-themes-in-ubuntu-910/    also this guy was apparently able to combine several (so there must be a way) http://ubuntu-virginia.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=854865      I suggest you dig deeper15:00
llutz_psusi: you're an optimist15:00
darkenvyI found it on ubuntu forums. its /etc/X11/xorg.conf15:00
psusillutz_: naw... I just think if you're that clueless, you don't belong in a command prompt in the first place.. whenever you try to make things more idiot proof, they build a better idiot ;)15:01
darkenvyI have to goto 1 monitor for a week, but this 4 monitor setup with xinerama was HELL setting up15:01

callaghanHi everyone, I have a strange problem with playing flash videos: When I watch a video on youtube, close firefox, start up totem (every video player works) I can still see the last image of the youtube-video when I move the window over the place where it was shown in firefox. It's like it's stored in some sort of video cache, and everytime where there would be a black spot in any other video...15:14
callaghan...I watch on totem I can see the picture through. The only way I found to get rid of it is by restarting my session, but whenever I watch a youtube video the effect is back. A few days ago everything was ok so I suspect this has something to do with a flash update... Any suggestions?15:14
