gmachine_24musicpiff, what do you want to know00:06
Jasonngmachine_24: for me its on the other side :D00:06
Ben65musicpiff: i use utorrent on ubuntu00:06
musicpiffno its just that I dont wanna be off topic00:06
Jasonnmusicpiff: I would use transmission,00:06
gmachine_24musicpiff, I use rtorrent. CLI. sleek and easy00:06
musicpiffthats why if there is a special room for this.. tell me00:06
logicalorutorrent / deluge00:06
gmachine_24musicpiff, we are telling you00:07
logicaloror rtorrent and a web gui00:07
Ben65oh yeah deluge is pretty cool00:07
gmachine_24you've had 3 suggestions00:07
gmachine_24maybe 400:07
gmachine_24seriously rtorrent is the bomb00:07
logicalortransmission isn't very customisable00:07
logicalorrtorrent is awesome00:07
Ben65rtorrent was slow for me00:07
Ben65dunno if that's improved since i tried it last00:07
musicpiffDo the torrent clients have a built in encryption feature for downloading music?00:08
gmachine_24Ben65, I don't think that was the program.......... but I could be wrong00:08
Ben65utorrent does, i think deluge does, not sure about that though00:08
gmachine_24musicpiff, if you are asking how to break a copyright law, no one will help you00:08
musicpiffgmachine_24: jumping to comclusions are we?00:08
gmachine_24mujsicpiff, I said "if"00:08
musicpiffI asked if there is an encryption feature :)00:09
gmachine_24er, musicpiff00:09
gmachine_24musicpiff, what do you want to encrypt? the download? it seems the source does that............................00:09
Dash_Halloo all!00:09
gmachine_24musicpiff, unless you go through a site that attempts to hide the transmission00:09
Ben65gmachine_24: i think he means the protocol and stuff, some mean ISPs tend to block all torrenting00:09
musicpiffwell I just wanna be safe00:10
gmachine_24Ben65, yeah. I have one of them. Sort of.00:10
gmachine_24wear a condom00:10
gmachine_24My ISP uses firewall software00:10
gmachine_24to redirect you from bittorrent sites that contain copyrighted material00:11
musicpiffhow do they know its a torrent and not a regular file00:11
Nisstyregmachine_24, ssh tunnels and VPNs are remarkable at getting around firewalls00:11
gmachine_24Nisstyre, yes, true.00:11
musicpiffNisstyre: dont vpn's make you even more unsecure?00:11
logicalorseedbox + vpn = minimal problems00:11
=== jesus is now known as Guest5732
Nisstyremusicpiff, uh no00:12
Nisstyrethe opposite00:12
Ben65set up ssh on a server on port 80, and you can't get blocked (pretty much)00:12
gmachine_24theproblem is, I don't trust seed boxes00:12
Nisstyremusicpiff, by encrypting all traffic by default00:12
gmachine_24actually I don't trust anyone00:12
musicpiffbecause your relying on the opposite server to not rat you out00:12
Nisstyremusicpiff, you're relying on your isp to not "rat you out"00:12
musicpiffya but a vpn00:12
logicalorjust remember gmachine_24, wearing a tin foil hat actually increases the ability of 'the man' to read your brainwaves00:12
musicpiffis connecting to another server through your isp00:12
Ben65musicpiff: maybe you should consider getting music legally?00:13
MahoroCan i know that services run in ubuntu for terminal?? what comman i would use??00:13
gmachine_24logicalor, I stopped making tin foil hat jokes when dick cheney became vp ;)00:13
musicpiffim not talking about downloading anything00:13
musicpiffim just getting around how it works00:13
musicpiffI do downloading on windows00:13
MahoroCan i know that services run in ubuntu for terminal?? what comman i would use?00:13
Nisstyrealso Ben65, 443 is the best port00:14
MahoroCan i know that services run in ubuntu for terminal?? what comman i would use?00:14
Nisstyrebecause it becomes indistinguishable from ssl traffic00:14
gmachine_24musicpiff, they catch you when the RIAA or MPAA signs up users to track the ISP addresses of the seeders/leechers00:14

Jasonnthey can see your IP addr, and then report you to the ISP00:17
gmachine_24Jasonn, we hate Canadians... cuz $1C = $1.03US00:17
musicpiffJasonn: what if you go through a proxy00:17
pw-toxicgreppy, why not use gedit /etc/...path_to_crontab_file ?00:17
MahoroCan i know that services run in ubuntu for terminal?? what comman i would use?00:17
Mahorosomeone know?00:17
greppypw-toxic: because you can't edit them as a normal user.00:17
Jasonnmusicpiff: does the torrent go through the proxy, or just the access to the website00:17
gmachine_24musicpiff, proxies are not very safe00:17
tyatpi_Mahoro:  ps -ef maybe?00:18
logicalorpw-toxic i'm not sure - i have always used crontab00:18

pw-toxicgreppy, the ubuntu help pages focusses on data backups00:42
greppypw-toxic: you can use dd to copy a partition.00:42
JasonnDash_: Sorry i cant help you mate,00:42
Dash_Jasonn:  I appreciate it anyway.  Truly. ;)00:42
Jasonnlauren_: depends on the prog, but there is 4 different desktops you can choose from00:42
pw-toxicgreppy, do you think it is a good idea to backup the system partition using dd?00:42
JasonnDash_: try downgrading with the alternate CD00:43
DjpenguinJasonn:  You were looking to get off of mac, no? You'd install that because you have the functionality of linux with a pretty interface that would be more familiar to an ex-mac user00:43
lauren_Looking for Program similar to Microsoft One Note any ideas?00:43
greppypw-toxic: you can.  I normally worry more about actual data to backup, since I can restore packages rather easily.00:44
greppypw-toxic: I use rsync and rsnapshot to backup /etc for example.00:44
JasonnDjpenguin: HAHA, why would i get a mac? I was actually suggesting ubuntu to an ex-mac user, but i really wouldnt mind the interface change as the mac interface is horrd anyways00:44
pw-toxicgreppy, the problem is that there is so much configuration im doing..00:44
csree_iflema: no worries, I'm new to irc, and will either get used to this or find a client that will work best for me00:45

firsttimecalleris that what you're saying?03:29
audi0anonboots: is it PPTP or OpenVPN?03:30
edbianLorgonJortle, Are you using 64-bit Ubuntu?03:30
firsttimecallerpls keep in mind i'm kind of a noob03:30
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: Go look inside the deb and see what command it drops in /bin or /usr/bin03:30
anonbootsaudi0: PPTP03:30
bazhangfirsttimecaller, best to search in package manager or apt-cache search package or on irc /msg ubottu find package03:30
anonbootsaudi0: Let me double check just to be sure.03:30
firsttimecallerok, so don't download and install stuff from the sourceforge site, yes?03:30
audi0anonboots: in advanced options select use point-to-point encryption03:30
LorgonJortleedbian, Nope. But I've 64 bit architecture.03:30
bazhangfirsttimecaller, thats a very last resort, even after PPA03:31
firsttimecallerinstead use the synaptic package manager?03:31

bazhangfirsttimecaller, yep03:31
edbianLorgonJortle, You need 64 bit OS to take advantage of more than 3.2 Gb of RAM (not sure why you see 2.9) but either way you need 64 bit to get all 4 GB03:31
firsttimecalleryou guys keep using all the acronyms and jargon words that i don't really follow03:31

LorgonJortleedbian, Ah.... Thanks for the clarification.03:31
anonbootsaudi0: if I have no luck, Ill ask again.03:32
firsttimecallerok, so i should probably uninstall it now. how do i do that?03:32
bazhangfirsttimecaller, synaptic package manager handles all that. best to use it first and almost always03:32
audi0anonboots: to use openvpn in nm applet you need install the plugin03:32
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: I jsut told you what to look for03:32
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: Go see if you can find the binary it should have installed03:32
edbianLorgonJortle, no problem.  It's because there are more than 2^32 addresses in 4Gb of ram, so you need 64 bit (2^64 possible addresses) to use them all.  There is some hack for the 32 bit kernel called pae or something.03:32
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info03:32
bazhangfirsttimecaller, system administration synaptic package manager03:32
audi0anonboots: install the package network-manager-openvpn03:32

steff12321I asked earlier how to get sudo access when i messed up the sudoers file03:34
edbiansteff12321, Did you figure out a solution?03:34
steff12321now i am in livecd, and when i say sudo gedit /etc/sudoers it just brings me to the temp sudo file03:35
audi0steff12321: sudo visudo03:35
firsttimecallerok, so i want the mypassword safe found in synaptic, yes?03:35
edbiansteff12321, It's accessing the file on the live CD.  You need to mount the partition on the harddrive first and edit the sudoers file on there.03:35
steff12321edbian: how do i do that?03:36
edbianfirsttimecaller, Yes, always choose software that's in the repos first because it's safe and automatically updated03:36
edbiansteff12321, CLI or GUI way?03:36
firsttimecallerand the mypassword safe is the program that's the ubuntu version of password safe, yes?03:36
steff12321edbian: preferably GUI03:36
sacarlsonsteff12321: you will need to mount the disk you normaly boot from and modify the /etc/sudoer file on that root disk03:37
bazhangfirsttimecaller, likely yes03:37
edbiansteff12321, Go to computer.  See click on the drives listed in there until you figure out which is your Ubuntu root partition.03:37
edbiansteff12321, Then find the file in there.03:37
steff12321edbian: its a protected file, so i have to do it with a sudo command03:37
edbiansteff12321, gksudo nautilus will give you a nautilus window as the root user.  You can use it to do all of this.03:38
edbiansteff12321, Typically you do not want to use a root window but this is a case where it is useful for you03:38
firsttimecallerok, i just installed mypassword safe from synaptic. any idea how i run it? i can't find the icon03:38
edbianfirsttimecaller, mypassword in the terminal is a guess03:39
steff12321edbian: wait, so what do i do after the nautilus?03:39
bazhangfirsttimecaller, what about alt f2 mypasswordsafe03:39
edbianfirsttimecaller, time mypass and then jam on tab frantically and it'll auto-complete something useful03:39
sacarlsonsteff12321: after you have mounted it or know where it it mounted you can gksudo gedit  /path/to/your/etc/sudoer  and modify it as needed03:39

WiesshundAnyone use grub2 v1.98-2xxxxxxxxxxxx ? im having some non fatal issues with it03:58
firsttimecallerbut man, now is someone supposed to know that?03:59

Code_BleuCan i remove Unity Shell from 11.04 and go back to Gnome Shell?  I really do not like Unity04:01
psionmegana: I think there's an application to configure it, though I don't know the name of it04:01
rwwCode_Bleu: ask in #ubuntu+1 for natty help04:01
psionCode_Bleu: from what I read, you can change your session to ubuntu classic or gnome classic04:01
psionsomething like that04:01
Code_Bleupsion: where and/or how?04:01
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: the doc told you exactly what to type... you could have copy & pasted04:02
meganapsion, I think it's xmodmap, but it seems to be a little over my head04:02
sacarlsonWiesshund: non fatal issues?  that's a new one04:02
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: Welcome to *NIX the lad where every character matters... or else04:02
psionmegana: nah don't bother with xmodmap, that's more difficult than it needs to be.  it kind of circumvents the built in keybindings that openbox has04:02
psionmegana: it's good if you need to change the way mouse buttons behave or something, but anything else it's just a pain04:03
firsttimecallerD-Fender thanks for the welcome . . . but how the heck is someone supposed to know?04:03
Wiesshundsacarlson grub functions fine as far as booting, but the newest grub seems to pay no attention to the config files, such as 000_header, or 05_debain_theme etc04:03
meganawell I used showkey to tell me the keycode for the key I want to map04:03
meganawould you have done it like that psion?04:03
firsttimecallerD-Fender, where exactly did this man page tell me this? what are the words?04:03
bazhangfirsttimecaller, by reading the links we suggested, which are numerous04:04
psionmegana: I'd have used xev but they probably do the same exact thing04:04
firsttimecalleri don't see anything that says, to open this document, type MyPasswordSafe in the terminal04:04
firsttimecalleri followed the links, but just didn't see anything that seemed to tell me what i needed to know to open the program04:05
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: [22:54]<[TK]D-Fender>[22:49] <bazhang> http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man1/MyPasswordSafe.1.html firsttimecaller04:05
psionmegana: then just modify the xml file with your own keybindings.  tbh I kind of like fluxbox's ~/.fluxbox/keys file more, it seems quicker to add little keybindings04:05
bazhangMyPasswordSafe   <----- firsttimecaller04:05
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: and I even followed the link and pasted the very explicit instructions for you04:05
firsttimecallerd-fender, yes, i went to that link. where on that page does it show exactly what has to be typed in to open?04:05
[TK]D-Fenderbazhang: Yeah, he got it now.04:05
meganapsion, do you know how I can put xmodmap back to defaults. I think I screwed it up some how04:06
firsttimecalleri'm asking so the next time i go to a page like that i';ll know how to read it04:06
bazhangfirsttimecaller, case matters04:06
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: http://www.semanticgap.com/myps/ <- ah, I followed the link to the actual project page...04:06
psionmegana: is it running right now? ps ax |grep xmodmap04:06
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: When you want answers... drill04:07
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: http://www.semanticgap.com/myps/#starting04:07
firsttimecalleri udnerstand case matters, but how is one to know the precise caps that are required?04:07
meganapsion it's not running. I just notice a significant delay on the key I was messing with04:07
psionmegana: not sure, I'm pretty sure changes don't persist through relogging though04:07
bazhangfirsttimecaller, by following the links given many times here04:07
meganaokay, I will just reboot the machine and hope for the best :)04:07
psionmegana: http://mywereld247.blogspot.com/2011/02/key-bindings-in-openbox.html <-- that looks like a decent guide04:07
firsttimecalleri followed the link04:07
[TK]D-Fenderfirsttimecaller: The doc shows it with case.  the man page does as well.  Standard dictate that it has to match 100%04:08
firsttimecallerbut where on that page does is say, to open this program type MyPasswordSafe in the terminal?04:08

firsttimecallerd-fender, i don't see anything anywhere on the page you linked to that says WHAT the command is04:11
psionmegana: as an example, this is what my volume keys looks like in my ~/.fluxbox/keys file, yours will be different since it's xml, but it shows you the commands to manipulate volume and such04:12

BlackDragonTechyThanks bazhang04:14
bazhangwelcome BlackDragonTechy04:14
Ubuntu_JSpsion: then it gave my errors when I tried to go back in04:14
Ubuntu_JSpsion: so i was told to delete the null user.. and start over which I did but I am getting exit 1 error when i try to ftp back in04:15
psionUbuntu_JS: well I'm guessing the sftp server is being run by a system user, like sftp.  depending on the case you could just consider chown -R sftp:sftP folder04:15
Ubuntu_JSpsion: i am not sure if i should also delete the /dev/null folder and reinstall the user and recreate it04:15
firsttimecallerd-fender, yes, you have pointed repeatedly to http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/hardy/man1/MyPasswordSafe.1.html == but you have yet to show me where on the page it says that to open the program you have to type MyPasswordSafe in the terminal04:15

EricBladehi guys.  just installed ubuntu, first time i've used linux seriously in about 10 years.  my taskbar panel has a shit-ton of empty space on it, that i apparently can't use for anything except the trashcan icon.  how to solve?04:56
Fluttershywhat's the "problem"?04:56
Fluttershyyou can add a multitude of things to any panel04:57
BlackDragonTechyEricBlade : Right click it and "Add to panel"04:57

ubottuEricBlade: Please watch your language and topic to help keep this channel family-friendly, polite, and professional.04:57
Madpilotmorgan, very strange... never run into that issue before04:57
BlackDragonTechyI'm not really sure what you're asking. As your resolution increases there will be empty space in the bars.04:58
EricBladeok, the taskbar should not be a fixed width04:58
EricBladei added a second taskbar to the second monitor, and it's got a giant amount of empty space on the left and right of it, whereas on the main monitor it's only on the right04:59

sacarlsonsoftcoder: it's a one liner: sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt; sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda # change sda1 and sda to your choice05:50
psusisoftcoder, assuming you have ubuntu already installed to the first partition on the first hard disk, and you are currently booting from the livecd and have /dev/sda1 mounted in /mnt: sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda05:50

dtrf4837asdfqwer ubuntu 10.10, updated07:30
bazhangparapan, devede for the first, ogmrip for the second07:30
asdfqwerdtrf4837, go to admin > hardware drivers07:30
parapanbazhang: I want to put 2 DVD's on a single medium and then play the result with standalone player , yes07:30
bazhangasdfqwer, its additional drivers assuming hes using 10.1007:31
asdfqwerah okay07:31
asdfqwerdtrf4837, ^07:31
bazhangparapan, so use ogmrip then devede07:31
asdfqweryou see it?07:31
bazhangparapan, both are in the repos , install from there07:32
dtrf4837asdfqwer i tried Additional Drivers it says 'no proprietary drivers are in use on this system'07:32
bazhangdtrf4837, whats the card07:33
asdfqwerdtrf4837, yeah select the recommended driver and click activate07:33
parapanbazhang: but why to rip first ? the movies are already in DVD format ...I just want to put them together on the same disc ....07:33
dtrf4837asdfqwer i dont know the card, how do i find out?07:33
asdfqwerdoesn't matter07:33
bazhangdtrf4837, lspci to paste.ubuntu.com07:33
asdfqwerubuntu should be able to detect the recommended driver07:33
asdfqwerdtrf4837, does it not make a recommendation?07:34
bazhangparapan, by dvd format, you mean iso? or what07:34
parapan bazhang: DVD format = Video and Audio folders / structure07:34
dtrf4837asdfqwer no it just says 'no proprietary drivers...' and nothing else07:34
bazhangdtrf4837, tell us the card please07:34
CryptanalystHow can I find out how much of a hard drive is used in ubuntu server07:35
asdfqwerdtrf4837, type this in terminal07:35
dtrf4837bazhang how do i find out what card?07:35
asdfqwerlspci -v | grep VGA07:35
asdfqwerpaste result07:35
bazhangdtrf4837, I told you07:35
asdfqwershouldn't additional drivers detect and recommend something in 10.10?07:37
asdfqwerlike for me i just get 3 different nvidia revisions07:37
bazhangasdfqwer, not if its intel or a really old card07:37
dtrf483701:00.0 VGA compatible controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. CN700/P4M800 Pro/P4M800 CE/VN800 [S3 UniChrome Pro] (rev 01) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])07:38
visheven for ati i dont get suggests, and its not an old card ;p07:38
asdfqwerlooks like an onboard card07:38
dtrf4837yes it is07:38
asdfqwerwhat do you see again after running "additional drivers"07:39
asdfqwercan you select and activate anything?07:39
milamberparapan: you are not being clear. are you saying you have the audio and video ts folders for two separate movies?07:39
binspace_Hello, anybody know of any good asset packing web services out there?07:39
parapanmilamber: indeed07:39
parapanmilamber:  and I want them on the same disc07:40
binspace_if not, I got a project :-)07:40
milamberparapan: what are the total sizes for the filesystems?07:40
vishre-opening additional drivers isnt going to show any new drivers if there arent any..  dtrf4837: try googling for that card and drivers, my guess is that the card is not fully supported.07:41
dtrf4837asdfqwer there's a long square and underneath theres a big square, then on the bottom it says 'help' and 'close'. theres also 'enable' but its not activated so i cant click on it07:41
parapanmilamber: 3,7 Gb07:41
asdfqwerdtrf4837, yes just enable it07:41
asdfqwerwill probably require you to restart gdm or reboot altogether07:41
milamberparapan: if you are going to play them on a computer you can just burn them directly. are you trying to create one movie?07:41
parapanmilamber: I want them - both movies - to be able to play in a standalone ....not PC07:42
vishdtrf4837: is there any list of alternate drivers mentioned in that window?07:42
dgirzsalut ubuntois07:42
vishdtrf4837: if it is blank, it means there isnt any alternate driver to offer07:43
milamberparapan: does the target support dvd format?07:43
asdfqweri remember how hard it was like ~4 years ago to configure ubuntu display07:43

vish right, thats a blank list07:43
asdfqwerdtrf4837, i gtg though07:43
asdfqwergood luck07:43
bazhangdtrf4837, you'll have to copy that to your xorg.comf07:43
dtrf4837asdfqwer ok thanks for trying07:44
milamber!info qdvdauthor | parapan this is probably what you are looking for07:44

asdfqwermake sure you backup your xorg.conf to bazhang dtrf483707:44
parapanmilamber: if I copy both movies on the DVD, the stand alone player will see only the first one; even if stopped or whatever, it does not show me the structure of the DVD ...it starts to play directly the first movie07:44
Jackneillmilamber sorry i was away :( i was that dir when i used the command07:44
milamberparapan: qdvdauthor is what you want07:44
parapanmilamber: I'll give-it a try ...but it seems so complex ..I wanted something like 1/2/3 to be able to achieve this ...07:45
bazhangdtrf4837, doubtful youll get compiz with that card though, #compiz for confirmation07:45
milamberJackneill: repost the link? i thought you were in the apps directory when you ran it which was one too far.07:45
dtrf4837actually for me it was a bit easier for me to fix when i tried ubuntu few years ago...now they changed this xorg thing so i keep getting stuck07:46

milambersandking: it prints the working directory (to terminal)10:00
oCeansandking: locate might show these files because it has not updated its locate db yet10:00
oCeansandking: 'sudo updatedb' will update de locatedb. After that locate probably won't find the files10:01
dtrf4837i cant get back the desktop10:02
sandkingoCean, problem is files disappeared after faulty copying [not moving] of files so i assume they should be somewhere10:02
sandkingphotorec recovered some wav files but not the one i was looking for10:02

oCeansandking_: no problem at all10:12
dtrf4837rigved its not working....maybe because the part i cant see is on the left part of the screen10:12

stefwaldarksifer: try ubuntu-devel for programming questions11:27
rigvedFwb2700: it's using the generic wifi drivers that come with it. Ubuntu also has drivers for your latop - ath5k and ath9k, you just need to download and install them. this is done automatically during the install if you have the internet enabled11:27
dtrf4837milamber i can do this without booting into desktop?11:27
rigvedFwb2700: charge your laptop fully and then connect it to the internet. then install Ubuntu.11:28

skiwithpetehey everyone, does 10.10 need xorg.conf?12:17
Parametertwiztid, unfortunately, it seems to be still not connecting12:17
Parameteranyways, thanks for the help, again12:17
twiztidparameter: damn well my next suggestion is instead of forwarding ip's you can bridge your ppp and eth0 connections together for the same effect of ICS12:17
skiwithpetetrue, you could even install alpha312:17
javahornstaar2: sorry12:17
Parameterwell, I gotta go now12:17
oCeanjavahorn: nothing. It was fixed in 10.04. But in the bugs at LP, there are sometimes workarounds.12:17
ParameterI'll try bridging if I have the chance12:18
oCeanjavahorn: the issues differ per hardware config i guess12:18
skiwithpetedtrf4837, but I think you can just ditch your xorg.conf and it will make a new one12:18
twiztidtheres a bridging utility to join the two... no worries... heres a small tutorial on the matter:12:18

erUSULxfgghjlsine: « pkill process_name »13:28
ruanabhinav_singh: how did you install it?13:28
llutzDr_Willis: only if used as root13:28
ashworthi dd'ed an ubuntu partition (to make it bigger. i have changed the uuid, resize2fs etc)13:28
abhinav_singhruan i downloaded .deb package13:29
Dr_Willisashworth:   You proberly need to use a live cd. and fix the grub bootloader/files , and fstab file.13:29
dubbeashworth: if you have meddled with the partitions you might have to re-install grub13:29
erUSULabhinav_singh: download the last one from Vbox website13:29
Dr_Willisashworth:  you can change the UUID of a partition via the tune2fs command. that may be easier to do.13:29
GeekManhey is it normal that my cpu usage goes up as my tempreture on my laptop goes up13:29
vargadanisHi! I am unable to boot up my Ubuntu partition after I installed a new version of another OS. Am I correct to assume that I can restore the boot menu by reinstalling grub?13:29
ruanGeekMan: cpu causes temperature rise13:30
Dr_Willis!fixgrub | vargadanis13:30
ubottuvargadanis: grub is the default boot manager for Ubuntu releases before 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - GRUB how-tos: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GrubHowto - See !grub2 for Karmic onwards.13:30
vargadanisDr_Willis, thaaaank you :)13:30
Dr_Willisvargadanis:  also check the various grub2 docs out in the forums and wiki.13:30
ashworthright, so now i have two ubuntu - say in /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda5. my question is 'grub-install /dev/sda'  installs grub2 into mbr. OK. But where is it going to look for it's grub.cfg on startup? in /dev/sda2/boot/grub/grub.cfg or /dev/sda5/boot/grub/grub.cfg? as i understand grub.cfg is _not_ part of MBR13:31
=== root is now known as Guest84073
Dr_Willisashworth:  one of the os's controlls grub.. it uses that os's grub files.13:31
GeekManruan well this is all very strange because twice if i start a process and end it while im laying my laptop on my bed the cpu useage stay at 100 after i turn off that process but if i move it off the bed the usage drops13:31
xfgghjlsineso any one used dtach - like screen just simpler "apparently"13:31
MinSikCHOcan i ask sth...?13:31
Dr_Willisashworth:  unless you are doing chainloading.. grub2 here on ubuntu was able to see all my ubuntu os's on barious hd's so i just picked one ubuntu to handl the grub needs.13:32
=== K is now known as Guest61599
Dr_Willis!info dtach13:32
ubottudtach (source: dtach): emulates the detach/attach feature of screen. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.8-2 (maverick), package size 14 kB, installed size 72 kB13:32
Dr_Willisxfgghjlsine:  never heard of it. I do recall some other alternatvies to screen also. but rarely use them13:32
GeekManruan i would asume it has something to do with my temperature control or somthing its not a big issue though13:32
llutzashworth: grub writes an information into MBR where to find "boot.img", which is the 2nd stage of boot-process13:33
ashworthllutz: so how do i change where it finds boot.img when using grub-install?13:34
llutzashworth: man grub-install          "--boot-directory=DIR"13:34
GeekManllutz: i have had problems like this in the past does the new os wipe the mbr clean along with grub or does it stay there13:34
ashworthllutz: boot-directory is not even listed in help13:35
llutzGeekMan: depends on the OS and the defaults. some will just overwrite MBR, some ask where to put the bootloader...13:36
Dr_Willisashworth:  are you getting grub1 and grub2 confused?13:36
ashworthapparently it's in bzr/trunk13:36
ashworthDr_Willis: mm, i hope not :) i am using grub213:36
Dr_Willisashworth:  grub2 has the option. I use command similer to this one all the time --->>>   sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/InstalledSystemMointPoint  /dev/sda --recheck13:36
GeekManllutz ok cool13:37
Dr_Willisthat reinstalls grub on sda, from my installed system i have mounted.13:37

llutzashworth: grub 1.99~rc1-3 (debian sid)   but boot-directory is an option used since grub113:37
ashworthDr_Willis: ah, root-directory!13:37
ashworthnow that's there indeed13:37
ashworthgrub-install (GRUB) 1.98+20100804-5ubuntu313:38
ashworthllutz: yes, 1.99 got that option it seems13:38
Dr_Willisashworth:  root in this case is where to find the 'boot/grub' direcvtory' directory.  If you had grub on its own partition/boot partition. you would use that partition. not your / partition.13:38
llutzDr_Willis: ashworth thats why they changed it into "boot-dir" with is more logic13:38

ubottuTo install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://tinyurl.com/2ffg7cc -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.13:59
ubottuCanonical's partner repositories provide packages a location for software vendors to publish applications. The repo itself can be added by running this in a !terminal: « sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ $(lsb_release -sc) partner" »13:59
