jerry_Thanks Battlehands. OK. I seem to have one very specific problem with Flash. When I try to watch videos on YouTube.com,I get a white box (no video), but I hear the sound.

IanWizardfirsttimecaller: I've only done it durring install, but it uses ecrypt and ecryptfs.  IDK how to set those up after the fact though.01:08
DasEifirsttimecaller: but there always is some data from bios (first breach, think of tcmp..)01:08
firsttimecallerall -- i mostly want to make sure no one can boot up my laptop or read sensitive files in the event the laptop is lost, is home dir encryption good enough for those objectives?01:08
daftykinsehidle: you'd have to have the $$ for a second host to move it over to first though? :>01:08
mickster04hey, is bluray movie playing been updated yet?01:08

schnufflepw-toxic: of of course there a programms that need root level to do there job, of example apache starts as root to open port 80, but it drops the prviliges right after opening the port02:23
Wiesshundhmm this is wierd. when i get the partitions setup to install ubuntu (netbook edition) a screen pops up saying it needs to unmount /cdrom to commit changes and says continue or go back, but clicking either choice does nothing. anyone have any ideas or seen that before?02:23
brandinjust a simple player02:23
soreaudagni: Oh well, that was my only idea. Maybe try google02:23
elrosschnuffle, is there some way I can be sure that is the problem? Because I've got a gut feeling that this might have to do with a sucky driver or some bad configuration than my router or the signal noise...02:23
pw-toxicschnuffle, the most basic example im fighting with is for example "gedit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default"02:23
pw-toxicschnuffle, how am i supposed to do this with vnc not as root?02:24
edbianpw-toxic, when settings files are written as root they later can only be read as root (when they should be able to be read by your user)02:24

elrosschnuffle, will do; thanks, byye02:25
pw-toxicschnuffle, i dont like working with vi, vim or nano02:25
edbianpw-toxic, sign in normally.  Do this: gksudo gedit /etc/apache2...02:25
schnufflepw-toxic: then use sudo gedit .......02:25
edbianschnuffle, not sudo gedit, gksudo gedit02:26
pw-toxicschnuffle, this makes vnc crash!02:26

KatronixSerfHi all, I know this is more of a Grub q, I'm in there as well. My Q is: I just added a second drive to my system which has Windows 7 on it, how do I tell grub to see it and show it on the boot menu?02:26
ubundo i need openjdk... what is it for?02:26
Gskelligjava development02:27
edbianKatronixSerf, sudo update-grub2   (looks for operating systems on all partitions and makes menu entries for them)02:27
ubunso if i dont know what it is then i dont need it?02:27
edbianubun, openjdk in for developing java.  You need it if you want to write / compile java programs02:27
KatronixSerfedbian, thanks!02:27
edbianKatronixSerf, no problem02:27
ubunedbian: ok then i dont need it02:27
schnufflepw-toxic: what makes vnc crash?02:27
edbianubun, There might be some package that depends on it.  (I doubt it)02:28
pw-toxicedbian, in this case i get an error dialog box with the following message: "Failed to run gedit "/etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf" as user root.      Unable to copy the users' Xauthroization file.02:28

schnufflepw-toxic: are you working locally or through ssh?02:30

edbianpw-toxic, the crashes?  I have no idea02:31
pw-toxicedbian, the errormessage when i use gksudo02:31

pw-toxicWes_, i even dont know why the raid is resyncing...02:47
jrb2971i'm trying to get the default session in ubuntu to change from gdm to lxde02:47
jrb2971I found the default-display-manager file but cannot find what to change it to02:47
Todd200I asked my question.... :(02:47
ubunim at a loss for what to do about this flash problem... its how i learn how to code html and tinker with linux and all that02:47
smwjrb2971, you either need a new login manager or to change the defaut desktop env on login02:48
schnufflejrb2971: so you have installed lxde, normally you should be able to choose you session when loggin in, somewhre on the bottom02:48
pw-toxicWes_, ok i think the resync is done by tommorrow.. its already on 24% and it started at 2 hours 48 minutes ago02:48
ubunit also buggs me that it is one thing that i cannot figure out02:48
pw-toxicWes_, why shouldnt i restart while resyncing?02:48

ubunVanderjuice adobe newest version02:48
ubuni gues02:49
Wes_pw-toxic: 1) it's bad luck  2) I don't know the specifics of your RAID system, so I don't know what the side-effects will be.  Likely just make you start all over again, but I'm not taking that chance. :)02:49
smwjrb2971, gdm is not a desktop env. It is a display manager02:49
Todd200[segfault]: I don't have a livecd, all my cds are 3mb too small, so I'm running wubi.exe02:49

* Wiesshund thinks todd should overburn02:58
schnufflejrb2971:  when you login through vnc lxdm,gdm or whatever is not involved02:58
mettaTodd200: how big are the cds you have?02:58
ubunvanderjuice, i didnt do anything i can watch one video then if i try to watch another one it will crash, and i have to clear cache or history or whatever to watch another02:58
soreauspeedy: Absolutely not. You should never run any user application as root02:58
Seperand1speedy    per user02:58
speedyi did not think so i never do02:58
vanderjuiceubun: did you remove the flashplayeralternative from the plugins folder?02:59
Todd200metta: 595mb I think02:59
speedybut still cannot set X11 Cursor Themes Global is this a bug cause it will not save upon reboot02:59
Todd200Kubuntu iso is 597.902:59
mettaTodd200: not the iso, the blank cd's max capacity.03:00
soreauspeedy: How are you trying to save the cursor theme?03:00
Seperand1Todd200 use a dvd03:00
iCyrusHow can I completely empty the trash can regardless of what's in it?03:00
ohzieHey guys. If I have a 9.04 server, what's the recommended way of upgrading? dist-upgrade?03:00
mettaTodd200: this isn't #kubuntu03:00
pw-toxicWes_, ok i try it the other way round.. what do you think is the most easy file editor for a terminal?03:00
rww!eol | ohzie03:00
ubottuohzie: End-Of-Life is the time when security updates and support for an Ubuntu release stop, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases for more information. Looking to upgrade from an EOL release? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EOLUpgrades03:00
Wes_pw-toxic: emacs03:00
edbianpw-toxic, nano03:00
edbianWes_, Shame on you!03:00
Wes_pw-toxic: Okay, maybe not emacs03:00
Wes_pw-toxic: But I'll help you learn if you'd like!03:01
mettanano ftw03:01
edbianpw-toxic, They're being sarcastic.  vi and emacs are notorious for having a learning curve.  nano is easy to learn03:01
Todd200metta: #kubuntu has no one around to help me03:01
Wes_edbian's answer is probably the right one03:01
soreauohzie: Install cleanly if possible.. for whatever version you want to upgrade to03:01
iCyrusHow can I completely empty the trash can regardless of what's in it? and please no one say Empty Trash because that's not working03:01
edbianWes_, :)03:01
mettanano is installed by default03:01
schnuffleWes_:  :)03:01
Wiesshundsoreau know something goofy? the embedded linux systems (instant on OS's go by various names) run everything as root. great for getting klined on irc ;(03:01
Wes_I just can't help it, long-time emacs user here. LONG time.03:01
Zelozelosanyone here using a S3 Trio 32/64 graphic card?03:01
dv310p3rHow do I install the glib?03:01
edbianWes_, It's great.  It's not great for beginners :)03:01
pw-toxicedbian, is there something like copy and paste on nano?03:01
edbiandv310p3r, sudo apt-get install glib03:02
bazhangdv310p3r, why would you need to03:02
soreauWiesshund: Hmm, that's probably not good..03:02
mettaZelozelos: doubtful.  maybe someone in #linux is03:02
Wes_edbian: It's really not so bad if you have somebody to help with the basics. And I *did* volunteer to do that. :)03:02
edbianpw-toxic, I think so.  Read the commands at the bottom of the nano screen03:02
Zelozelosmetta heh...idt so its soooo old03:02
dv310p3redbian: that doesn't work03:02
soreauhi flash_dude03:02
speedyok well when i boot i have to use system settings and all is fine but on reboot it keeps changing back to default and not what i selected03:02
ohziesoreau: It's not at the moment. I'm just messing around with an old box before I put Lucid on it.03:02
flash_dudeI have a question:03:02
mettaZelozelos: i haven't used a s3 anything in a long time03:02
dv310p3rbazhang: because when trying to install the latest xchat in says I need glib03:02
Todd200!ask | flash_dude03:02
ubottuflash_dude: 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. :-)03:02
bazhangdv310p3r, latest from where03:03
flash_dudeim writing.03:03
Wiesshundsoreau know how alot of motherboards come with a little linux on flash instant OS? yea they do everything as root. no idea who decided that was a good idea03:03
mettaflash_dude: just burn it03:03
* Zelozelos is thinking to tell the owner of that old pos to get a new graphic card or forgetabouttit!! rofl03:03
dv310p3rbazhang: from the website03:03
soreauWiesshund: Is that the technology that uses assembly to do processor specific instructions to achieve such loading times?03:03
bazhangdv310p3r, that is not a good idea. stick with package management03:03
dv310p3rbazhang: apparently theres a bug in the version that I have that when I add channels to my favorites they don't stay03:03
soreauor lack thereof..03:03
Zelozelosmetta any ideas on getting 10.10 to successfully detect/setup the correct rez ?03:04
speedysystems settings which is a KDE app for setting mouse cursor (theme)03:04
bazhangdv310p3r, sure they do. how are you adding them03:04
flash_dudethere are 3 packages related with flash: flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-installer and adobe-flashplugin. What the hell should I use?03:04
[segfault]Todd200: so can you reboot and at least get into a terminal without trouble, or not at all?03:04
mettaZelozelos: none.  you might try a different distro for older hardware like that.03:04
pw-toxicWes_, shouldnt strg + x close the editor? ;((( nothing happens03:04
dv310p3rbazhang: i right click on them and add to favorites03:04
mettaZelozelos: i have a blog that might be useful03:04
bazhangdv310p3r, thats not how to do it03:04
Zelozelosmetta ill give it a shot03:05
Wes_pw-toxic: which editor?03:05
edbianflash_dude, flashplugin-installer simply runs flash-plugin-nonfree03:05
speedyjust by using cursor selection from systerm>preferences does not change cursor unless I use the KDE app03:05
pw-toxicWes_, nano03:05
Zelozelositll be the LAST shot03:05
dv310p3rbazhang: ok, how should I do it.03:05
Wes_pw-toxic: control-X03:05
Wiesshundsoreau im not sure, i kind of doubt it since ive written a few modified apps for one of them (express gate) just a very small customized kernel and a compressed file system squashfs03:05
bazhangdv310p3r, edit the server and add there, separated by a comma03:05
pw-toxicWes_, yes thats "strg-x" in german ;)03:05
edbianflash_dude, I've had positive experience with flashplugin-nonfree03:05
flash_dudeedbian: without flashplugin-installer I cannot install flash from firefox?03:05
pw-toxicWes_, nothing happens ;(03:05
soreauspeedy: Sounds like permissions issue or kde bug. The latter might be more probable but you can check the former after running this command, change the theme and set it back again:  (Run as your normal user!) sudo chown -R $USER $HOME03:05
dv310p3rbazhang: also, is there an easier way to respond directly to you, other than having to retype your name each time.03:05
pw-toxicWes_, im gonna kill putty now ;(03:05
mettaZelozelos: http://kmandla.wordpress.com/ you could also try #linux  how much ram does the system have?03:05
edbianflash_dude, I'm not sure what you're asking03:05
Wes_pw-toxic: oh. And wierd.03:05
schnuffle!flash | flash_dude03:05
Wes_pw-toxic: maybe the de localization for nano changes the commands?03:05
ubottuflash_dude: To install Flash see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats/Flash - See also  !Restricted and !Gnash03:05
speedyjust annoying that i have to do this on each boot03:06
bazhangdv310p3r, tab complete, set to last spoken and not alpahbetical baz <tab> will do it03:06
soreauWiesshund: Yea I can't wait to get my hands on some machines capable of doing this :)03:06
Todd200[segfault]: the xbuntu loading screen appears with the dot animation, but then it changes to static, kubuntu hasn't even installed yet03:06
soreauWiesshund: (and an SSD)03:06
schnuffleWes_: no they stay the same, as far as I have used it03:06
bazhangerr alphabetical03:06
dv310p3rbazhang, like that.03:06
* Todd200 ment kubuntu03:06
pw-toxicWes_, no its just strange...  after restarting putty control-x works03:06
flash_dudeedbian: synaptic shows that I only have flashplugin-installer installed not flashplugin-nonfree03:06
bazhangdv310p3r, yes03:06
Zelozelosmetta its a dell inspiron 4000 2.2ghz -out of the box state..im trying to get kde for someones kids03:06
flash_dudeedbian: why is that?03:06
dv310p3rbazhang, thanks a million03:06
Zelozelosmetta err not ked but kubuntu03:06
bazhangdv310p3r, welcome03:06
mettaflash_dude: flashplugin-installer should be sufficient03:06
Wes_pw-toxic: wierd. I've logged probably in excess of 5,000 hours in putty and never had that happen03:07
mettaZelozelos: kde is probably even less light weight03:07
edbianflash_dude, I have no idea.  The packages are a dark void of mystery.  What do they descriptions say about them?03:07
pw-toxicWes_, im special!03:07
Wes_pw-toxic: apparently so, lol!03:07
Zelozelosmetta meh..nvm i give up...ill tell her to go to the mart n get a new card then MAYBE ill try again03:07
flash_dudeso should I use flashplugin-nonfree or adobe-flashplugin?03:08
Zelozelosty though03:08
mettaZelozelos: just make sure to recycle the old card somehow03:08
pw-toxicWes_, but still nano totally sucks in comparison with gedit ;(  i think i will install vmware on my desktop and run ubuntu on it and then i do ssh -X my-server     what do you think about this solution?03:08
Wiesshundsoreau just pick up any cheap asus motherboard with expressgate, a cheap cpu, 1 cheap stick of ram and a crap vid card03:08
ehidlethis is odd03:09
edbianpw-toxic, nano is great compared to vi  :)03:09
Wes_pw-toxic: what problem are you trying to solve?03:09
bazhangehidle, what is03:09
soreauWiesshund: I have no budget for another machine atm03:09
pw-toxicedbian, i know.. i have tried vi and vim ;)03:09
mettavi is fine, nano fine03:09
mkquist__iCyrus: get the files deleted?03:09
flash_dude3 packages for the same thing is just stupid03:09
mettanano wins because it's included w/ ubuntu03:09
Zelozelosmetta blog seem interesting...ill read on ;)03:09
pw-toxicWes_, copy and paste with a mouse for example ;)   syntax highligthing03:09
schnuffleedbian: do you want to start a religion war? :)03:09
[segfault]Todd200: so no grub then.. :(  Yeah, I would be inclined to just burn a live CD and install from there.  almost all newer CDs can hold 700MB regardless of what your iso burner is telling you.  I would try another iso burner and see if you can get it to work.03:09
mettaZelozelos: enjoy \o/03:09
ubottu#ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!03:10
pw-toxicWes_, nice search highlithning03:10
ehidlebazhang: I built a new ESXi whitebox today... installed a Win7 VM and it can't get out on the network...03:10
pw-toxicWes_, copy and paste trhough different files03:10
Wes_pw-toxic: so, you want an editor for your ubuntu box to display on a windows box, and you want the editor to not-suck?03:10
pw-toxicWes_, copare two different file versions03:10
xuser73How can I configure a specific internet device to be restricted to only one ip address and port?03:10
soreauehidle: Did you check all VM settings ?03:10
pw-toxicWes_, something like this yes ;)03:10
ehidlesoreau: of course :)03:10
soreauehidle: shouldwork then03:10
Wes_pw-toxic: install the mingw x server on windows. Run your favourite editor on ubuntu, redirect the display to the windows box03:11
ehidlesoreau: that's why I said it was odd :p03:11
Wes_pw-toxic: run the mingw x server in no-root-window mode, it's better03:11
pw-toxicWes_, so i think i will install ubuntu on VMWare and then i do "ssh -X my-file-server" and then do "sudo su" and "gedit /etc/mdadm/mdadm.conf"03:11
xuser73Is it possible to restrict access of an IP to only one IP:port?03:11
soreauxuser73: You can set a static ip but not sure how to restrict the port. Try ##networking03:11
bazhangxuser73, why would you want to03:11
Wes_pw-toxic: that would work, but my solution is better, faster and easier :D\03:11
bastidrazorpw-toxic: putty from windows to login via ssh then into screen and then use any cli editor. that is an awesome way to have it not suck for windows.03:11
HiPotOkBeen reading 'vsftp' man files looking for an option to make a single directory everyones home directory... so far no success, anyone know if this is possible?03:11
ehidlesoreau: I'm using a community-provided driver for the RTL8111 NIC on the board, whic is of course unsupported in ESXi, and I suspect it could be related to that03:11
pw-toxicWes_, how can anything be faster than VMWare? i can switch instantly to ubuntu in <1 second03:12
pw-toxicWes_, and i have a full GUI03:12
xuser73bazhang: security03:12
pw-toxicWes_, just for you to know: i got 8GB ram and 200GB of a SSD hard drive ;)03:12
bazhangxuser73, is this related to ubuntu somehow03:12
schnufflepw-toxic: I second the install of a X-Server but prefer CygwinX03:12
Wes_pw-toxic: how can a discrete ubuntu box NOT be faster than one running under emulation?03:12
iCyrusmkquist__: What?03:12
soreauehidle: You mean the connection isn't working in the host either?03:12
Wes_schnuffle: CygwinX is fine, but I prefer the mingw installer. Approximately the same product, though. Very happy with it, done it many many many times03:13
Wes_both products03:13
ehidlesoreau: connection works fine for the host... I have a 9.10 server running at the moment, copying 3TB of data to it heh...03:13
mkquist__iCyrus: thought you were trying to empty the trash03:13
pw-toxicWes_, everything <1 is out of the meassurement range and drops to 0 seconds ;)03:13
ehidlesoreau: Management net works fine, too03:13
Wes_pw-toxic: *shrug* - I have plenty of usability experience that says two boxes is better than one box emulating two03:13
soreauehidle: Maybe check with the VM devs, or try a different VM03:14
ehidlesoreau: I can assign the Win VM a static IP and ping other hosts, but I can't do any application-layer stuff03:14
pw-toxicschnuffle, i have done the cygwin thing too, but then the editor looks like a bastard editor from hell - i like nice colors and a clean antialising of the font ;)03:14
Wes_but, different strokes for different folks and all that :)03:14
Wes_pw-toxic: not cygwin, cygwin X, use the X server03:14
soreauehidle: Ah then it's probably just a nameserver issue, yea?03:14
pw-toxicWes_, to be honest, im not sure if i have really understood your solution03:14
soreauehidle: Does 'ping google.com' work from the host?03:14
ehidlesoreau: one might think, but it also can't get an IP from the DHCP server03:14
schnufflepw-toxic: I see, cosmetic is important to you03:14
pw-toxicWes_, i know how to use cygwin X .. i then can run native linux programs using cygwin as an x-server03:14
Wes_pw-toxic: you install an X server on windows.   Then you run your program on your ubuntu box. Instead of displaying on the ubuntu box, you tell it to display on the windows box03:15
ehidlesoreau: DNS requires applciation layer functionality that appears to be b0rked at the moment :)03:15
pw-toxicschnuffle, well if you would know how my computer looks like you would accept it that im such a person ;) wanna see a pic of my computer?03:15
soreauehidle: Well if it's a bug, you should check with the VM devs to see if they know anything03:15
schnufflepw-toxic: yes paste somewhere, I'm curious now03:15
pw-toxicWes_, yeah ok then i understand it, but i dont think that the gedit then looks native like if i would run it on ubuntu right?03:15
ehidlesoreau: yeah I will... just have to collect some useful info for them03:15
Wes_pw-toxic: it should look exactly the same, within the confines of your window manager03:15
pw-toxicschnuffle, http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1147499/pc-gruen3.jpg03:16
soreauehidle: *nod*03:16
Wes_It's pretty, but does it work? :)03:16
Wiesshundhehe the netbook interface takes a little getting used to03:16
acerimmerpw-toxic: sweet mercy!  That thing looks evil - in a good way!03:16
schnufflepw-toxic: okay, I see, but as Wes_ told you it should look the same, I don't know about antialiasing03:17
Wes_pw-toxic: This is what a real workspace looks like IMO - http://www.page.ca/~wes/desk.jpg :)03:17
Wiesshundi kind of feel like a retard in it03:17
edbianWes_, ewww, mac03:17
pw-toxicacerimmer, well be happy that you dont know how my old computer looked like when i was 16 years old..  this new computer is much more "adult" ;)03:17
Wes_edbian: It's a darn fine version of unix03:17
Wes_edbian: gui needs work, though03:17
SenjaiHey guys I'm trying to boot my Ubuntu partition from within windows using virtual box according to this tutorial: http://bit.ly/gjfEnt but the first step on creating a bootable grub ISO I can't do, the files don't exist.03:17
Wes_when I was 16, I had a 40 MB harddrive stickout the top of my tower03:18
dv310p3rHow do I enable SFTP on my ubuntu server. SSH works but when I try to connect to it via SFTP it says Couldn't read packet: Connection reset by peer03:18
visual1cewhat media player do you recommed for 10.10? i used to use vlc in windows... i see it is in software center03:18
pw-toxicWes_, oh.. i have 4 monitors myself .. one desktop over 4 monitors: 19" 22" 22"(eizo) and 37" for TV and full hd blu-ray movies ;)))03:18
schnuffleWes_: I had a Oric103:18
ehidlesoreau: this is interesting: Mar  5 22:17:03 digix-ipcop dhcpd: 5 bad udp checksums in 9 packets03:18
Senjaidv310p3r, sftp uses ftp not ssh03:18
Wes_schnuffle: what's that?03:18
Senjai!sftp | dv310p3r03:18
ubottudv310p3r: SSH is the Secure SHell protocol, see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH for client usage. PuTTY is an SSH client for Windows; see: http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ for it's homepage. See also !scp (Secure CoPy) and !sshd (Secure SHell Daemon)03:18
Wes_pw-toxic: I had to change down to only one display recently. Neck problems. :( :( :( :(03:18
leapy0yoif you turn off password authentication for ssh, you still have to enter the passcode for your private local dsa key file,r ight?03:19
soreauehidle: Ouch, sounds like it might be a deep bug03:19
pw-toxicWes_, BUT the difference is: my computer makes 0dB noise, because everything is watercooled... but now we should stop this here if i dont want to get kicked out of here for off topic ;)03:19
schnuffleWes_: that was a home pc  with a Zilog CPU03:19
dv310p3rDAMN YOU ubottu!03:19
Senjaidv310p3r, you'll have to download an sftp server for your box03:19
ehidlesoreau: yeah.... I'll move the VM to another host NIC (I have a dual-port Intel nic in the machine as well)03:19
dv310p3rSenjai, any recommendations03:19
edbianleapy0yo, No, it looks in the proper folder (.ssh) for the keys03:19
Wes_schnuffle: Nice! I had a Timex-Sinclair 1000 at one point  (ZX81 with an extra K of RAM)03:19
ehidlesoerau: if it clears up, it'll implicate the 8111 community driver03:19
Woody_whats the topic/03:19
Grim76Senjai, are you confusing sftp with ftps?03:19
Senjaidv310p3r, I use filezilla03:20
ruanubuntu support is the topic.03:20
ruanthere is ubuntu-offtopic for others03:20
dv310p3rSenjai, filezilla is an FTP client, not server is it?03:20
pw-toxicWes_, thats one of the key points why i changed to windows7 for my desktop because it is hard to use 4 monitors from two different graphic card vendors (nvidia and AMD) in ubuntu while windows runs this out of the box03:20
Senjaidv310p3r, has both, there is a server version as well, if I understand correctly03:20
visual1cei guess ill just go with vlc03:20
pw-toxicWes_, do you know if this is possible with ubuntu?03:20
dv310p3rSenjai, gotcha, thank you.03:20
ehidlesoreau: the other possibility is that it has something to do with the ~700Mbit of info I'm throwing at it at the moment heh03:20
Senjaidv310p3r, its kinda windows-like, not many linux/unix users use it, they use something else similar to openssh, but you'd have to ask around03:21
visual1cealso is there a ppa for proprietary codecs - a ppa with just codecs not a bunch of additional software03:21
schnufflepw-toxic: some time ago there was somebody having problems with too dofferent cards03:21
SenjaiHey guys I'm trying to boot my Ubuntu partition from within windows using virtual box according to this tutorial: http://bit.ly/gjfEnt but the first step on creating a bootable grub ISO I can't do, the files don't exist.03:21
Wes_pw-toxic: No clue.  Probably, if you work hard enough, almost anything is possible. :)  ... But I generally prefer a mixed environment, anyhow - pick the best tool for the job at hand, leave the politics at the door.03:21
pw-toxicschnuffle, did he solve it?03:21
soreauehidle: It shouldn't but I'd guess it'd be a driver issue if it did03:21
dv310p3rSenjai, thanks03:21
schnufflepw-toxic: not in my knowledge03:21
Woody_does anyone know anything bout  loadsharing with ubuntu ?03:21
Wes_schnuffle: was he trying to run multiple X servers are XINERAMA?03:21
soreauehidle: using rsync or any way to pause the transfer and test?03:21
ehidlesoreau: I thought of a buffer overflow, but then the other VM would be complaining too, and it's not03:21
pw-toxicWes_, well as i just told you.. i LOVE nice enviroment.... and in this case ubuntu is totally kickass ... i LOVE the 3D cube with multi desktop ;)))03:22
ehidlesoreau: sure... you can just quit and rsync and start it over and it'll pick up where it left off03:22
soreauehidle: I mean for you over there, is there any way to test if the transfer is affecting it03:22
soreaubecause I'd kinda be curious to know ;)03:22
schnuffleWes_: not sure but I think he dropped the word Xinerama03:22
ehidlesoreau: I know.. I was just echoing your thoughts for the benefit of the crowd :p03:23
Woody_looking to put together a bunch of old desktops and set up ubuntu server with load sharing sounds possible?03:23
Wes_schnuffle: I can see that being a problem, I don't think you can do Xinerama across multiple X servers, and I'm not sure you can support two different card types with a single x.org X server03:23
schnuffleso you mean load balacing?03:23
edbianWoody_, Definitely, the load sharing will be the hardest part to configure03:23
pw-toxicWes_, i'm totally missing the multi desktop environment of gnome/KDE on windows... i couldnt find any windows addon which makes me use serveral work benches at a time in windows7 which works fluently within < 150ms to switch between them03:23
Wes_I could be wrong on the latter point, though - it's been a very long time03:23
linxehpw-toxic: microsoft provide one03:23
gaelfxis there any OS X emulator, similar to Wine? (btw, I think mace would be a great name for the project if there isn't already one)03:24
Wiesshundpw-toxic there is one that is kind of like compiz03:24
pw-toxiclinxeh, its horror slow!03:24
Wes_pw-toxic: really? 'cause XPSP2 has one03:24
Woody_any tools you might point out ? Havent done it before03:24
linxehpw-toxic: well, not tried in 7, but its ok in xp03:24
pw-toxicWes_, i have TONS of active windows... the more windows you have the more it takes03:24
linxehthey provide it as a powertoy03:24
Wiesshundgaelfx no, there isnt a wine type compat layer for osx03:24
pw-toxiclinxeh, as soon as I start photoshop cs4 it gets super slow because photoshop has a strange window manager03:24
Wes_linxeh: And, the kill MS multi-monitor features:  1)  control-tap "target",   2) easy to adjust relative (pixel-wise) monitor positions03:25
gaelfxvery well, anyone wanna start a mace project with me? :P03:25
pw-toxiclinxeh, can you tell me or link me something of this? i have tried several tools that emuulate several desktops but none could fulfill my requirements03:25
linxehpw-toxic: I dont run photosohp, so heh :)03:25
leapy0yohow do i change screens when i am in a screen inside a screen?03:25
ehidlesoreau: moving it to another NIC in the host cleared it up instantly03:25
Wes_gaelfx: Not me, but maybe the open darwin (?) guys would03:25
linxehpw-toxic: on windows xp - http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx03:25
pw-toxiclinxeh, im dependant form photoshop ;( need for work03:25
schnuffleWoody_:  what services do you want to load balace?03:25
soreauehidle: Is that really new hardware? (the nic with the problem)03:26
SenjaiDoes anyone know how to boot a hard partition in virtual box/03:26
linxehpw-toxic: tried this one? http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/cc81788103:26
leapy0yohow do i use screen commands when I am inside screen? That is, I have screen process running inside another screen process03:27
bazhangSenjai, #vbox for that03:27
ehidlesoreau: yeah the motherboard is new... the onboard NIC works fine for the one VM... it's weird.. I need to do some more testing once my data is finished moving... but I'm wondering if it's a driver issue03:27
[segfault]Senjai: I think you can get that stage2_eltorito file from the iso here - http://www.supergrubdisk.org/ You will have to unpack it and extract the file you need, of course, since the disk is used for another purpose.03:27
Woody_just a little home server I want to use a load balance cause most of the smaller pcs doesnt have suffiecient processing power...heard of load sharing so I figured it splits the load of say rendering or mass dls or whatever03:27
ehidlesoreau: rephrase... I'm almost certain is a driver issue on the host03:28
soreauehidle: sounds about right03:28
edbianWoody_, Pick the fastest one, set it up as a single server, see how it fares.  I don't know how much traffic you think you're generating but I'm willing to bet they're fast enough for personal use03:28
ehidlesoreau: it would have been nice to have the three NICs, but a PCI-e Intel nic is $30, and is on the HCL :)03:29
ehidlesoreau: so I'll just buy another one hehe03:29
pw-toxiclinxeh, 1) it doesnt support cool hotkeys like "alt+q" and "alt+e" for super easy desktop switch  and 2) it is slow and looks like crap (screen gets black for a very short time) 3) windows aero does only work on desktop #103:29
Senjaibazhang, [segfault] thank you03:29
pw-toxiclinxeh, and TV gets stuck for 1-2 seconds when i return to screen1 (where TV is)03:29
linxehI dont use win7 enough :)03:29
linxehpw-toxic: virtualwin ?03:30
ehidlesoreau: I believe the developer for this driver is a regular over at the vm-help forums, so I'll bring it up there03:30
soreauehidle: You should at least file a bug somewhere so it gets fixed for everyone else03:30
soreauehidle: Perfect. :)03:30
pw-toxiclinxeh, i'd like if i could use ubuntu.. im really missing the cool desktop environment of ubuntu03:30

soreaupw-toxic: Why can't you use ubuntu?03:30
linxehpw-toxic: recommended by a friend, but I dont know if does what you want03:30
Woody_I have a amd 64x2 but it already carries most of the load was wondering if he loadsharing could make it run smoother and not "DIm the screen" when I try and run a hundred things at once ! :-)03:31
linxehpw-toxic: I'd use ubuntu at work if I could, but I can't :P03:31
linxehpw-toxic: despite being freelance, the companies I consult at tend to all use windows because they think they can lock it down more easily03:31
soreauWoody_: You mean when applications become unresponsive?03:31
pw-toxiclinxeh, well there is a big list that forces my desktop to be windows 7: 1) i have a creative x-fi which is incompatible with linux 2) i want to view real blu-rays.. there is no official blu-ray player for linux 3) i want to use 4 screens with 2 different graphic cards  4) i need to use Photoshop CS4  while only CS2 works on WINE 5) i want to play sc2 and i think bnet doesnt support sc2 on wine (wow worked for me)03:31

rwwhyperzap: some VPS providers (I'm thinking of Linode) also offer an emergency console you can ssh into; that's from the provider.03:33
lightaah yeah thx =)03:33
Ben65pw-toxic: 1) probably has a driver somewhere, seems crazy it wouldn't. 2) blu ray is playable 3) ... 4) cs1-5 work 5) sc2 works fine03:33
linxehI think 1) and 2) are solvable relatively easily (buy a new gfx card, and get a bluray player, or rip them via wine/vm). 3) should be possible with linux, 4) can be solved in a vm, albeit with a bit of a perf hit (but mainly IO which is mitigated with a decent SSD). However, in your position I'd stick with separate machines :)03:33
hyperzaprww, and it will be default SSH directory /etc/ssh so I can load fail2ban out of the box??????????????03:33

Senjaisoreau, doubt it, there might be a stripped down command line version of ubuntu that'd fit..03:35
pw-toxicBen65, there is a native driver from creative which made it possible to use at least 5.1 sound, but im missing all the configuration i can do by software to the sound which i really need, because im a very music and sound addicted person - i have a very good sound system here and i can not allow any quality issues to my sound03:35

Ben65pw-toxic: depends what cards, i don't see why it wouldn't work though03:37
pw-toxicBen65, actually can you tell me if i can use 4 screens with ONE AMD card which works with compiz? i could afford buying a new graphics card03:37
pw-toxicBen65, at the moment i have one AMD and one NVidia ... its hard for ubuntu to have two different graphic drivers work out of the box03:37

bazhangrnigam, using virtinst package?03:41
soreaublind: Try changing the video method for your player. ie. mplayer -vo xv /path/to/video.ext03:41
soreaubilal: You have to actually start compiz by running /opt/compiz++/bin/compiz++03:41
pw-toxicBen65, i was running ubuntu with my onboard card for about a year .. after 2 years of watinig creative released an official linux driver which actually worked with the card but there were zero options... no chance to get creative make linux support... stupid bastards...03:42
Woody_Benslater >did u check if the user is set up as administrator ?03:42

ubottuA chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory.

j_dalmondhylian, agree about firefox, but after a few recent updates it works good even with _many_ multiple tabs, though some time ago it was _unbearably_ f***ing slow. well, but chromium is also _very_ good05:28
hylianRealEyes, one thing that could be a decent diagnostic aid for you would be to boot from a live cd of some kind, and see if there is a dramatic internet speed difference.05:29
ruanfirefox never runs slowly for me.05:29
BlackDragonTechyI've used FF since 0.8 but I ended up switching to Chrome.05:30
hylianj_dalmond, good to know. for now i am still going to stick with epiphany. i can't complain, it's not a need to know where the cache is.05:30
RealEyesI wonder a lot about security and VPNs and stupid crap like that.05:30
RealEyesTruth is, I haven't a clue as to what I'm doin.05:30
j_dalmondhylian, well, good then -)05:31

ruanyep, he has more than 1g ram05:48
ActionParsnipCheBuzz_Home: thats all I got. HDMI can be a real pain05:48

ActionParsnipRealEyes: http://blog.sandeep.co.in/2008/01/09/dnsmasq-browse-the-web-faster/       install and edit the file as given, then ignore the rest and edit your connection in network manager and set the interface as DHCP address only then set your first dns server to and then use your ISPs or google DNS as secondary05:58
RealEyeswhat else could I do to my system to make it BLAZING fast?05:58
ActionParsniperik_: edit the boot and remove:   quiet splash    and add nomodeset05:58

RealEyesI'm always on twitter and chat sites05:59
erik_ActionParsnip: So what would I have to do exactly from a clean install? Is this the grub.conf file?05:59

hiexposoreau, i have seen that problem before also so i use cp  command07:00
wolterActionParsnip, well it would be good enough for me but my nautilus search is weird, it will only search through the files I used in the last 6 months as a maximum, old search is gone07:01
soreauhiexpo: To do what?07:02
wolterSometimes folders won't do the trick though, Imagine you want to put 5 tags on one file.. you'd have to put the file inside 5 folders07:02
ruanwolter: or make 4 links07:02
wolterruan, well wouldn't tags be so much easier07:02
wolterAnyway, if somebody could help me with the nautilus search, I would also appreciate07:03
ruanwell you could copy and paste the link to the 4 folders07:03
ActionParsnipwolter: tags would  be more raceful, i'll see what I can find07:03
hiexposoreau, to copy the iso to the usb07:03
shadghostyou can add metadata tags07:04
ActionParsnipwolter: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/9560/  exactly as you described :)07:04

_Ray_Hey, not sure if this is the correct place to ask. Just installed 10.10, on an IBM ThinkPad. However, when I cat /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/state, it says "none". /installed says 1. The tp_smapi, hdaps, and thinkpad_ec modules are loaded. How can I further diagnose the battery issue? (Basically, it's "not working," and I wanted to find out more.)07:12

Random832happyaron: can ln do recursion?07:17
Strykerln is the natural log07:17

happyaronRandom832: but how recursion be useful? any difference if you just link the directory?07:18
ActionParsniphappyaron: make some dummy data files and investigate :)07:18
Random832ActionParsnip: my point is i'm pretty sure that's what cp -l does07:18

NinjaKemuriOh, I got it to work; but it says no sound cards are found.08:16
SYS0P^vim is an editor like pico or joe08:16
caseygotcha. So how do i have fun with vim?08:16
shadghostmy advice if you want to learn ubuntu, command line is the reasion to keep with a linux over a window distro08:16
shadghostso learn the command line, and vim is the most powerfull cli editor out there08:17
_jesse_casey: run through vimtutor to get acquainted08:17
NinjaKemuriActionParsnip: It downloaded, it's uploaded my alsa information.08:17
Sleepwalkeri think nano is easier for noobs08:17

caseyI gotcha shadghost, thanks for all the help guys :). I'll keep all that in mind.08:17
caseySee ya08:17

HeavylobsterHi people, i've got an extremely annoying issue running ubuntu 10.10 (though it happened on ubuntu 10.04 as well) on my desktop. Basically, programs keep stopping responding without warning for some time and then suddenly start responding again. Also upgrading the system is ridiculously slow, i haven't tested much to see if there's other stuff working slowly as well. Windows 7 runs flawlessly on the computer as does ubuntu under08:47
Dr_Willismarz:  but only a few drivers are ever needed for my systems08:47
marzDr_Willis that's what i thought08:47
ruanmarz: the only drivers you need to install should be the display drivers08:48
trickshadghost: that explains the menstruation.08:48
shadghostHeavylobster: is your system all the way updated?08:48
Dr_Willisvideo card drivers are the only thing ive seen.08:48
marzDr_Willis i won't even detect a flash drive when I tried connecting one08:48
marzruan: I don't have any internet connection in my room08:48
javahornDr_Willis: i installed Win7(just by installation CD, ie no prior partition) and now installing Ubuntu , it says something about unmount /dev/sda ... How i can partition NOW either from Win7 or Ubuntu?08:48
marzruan: that's why i'm having really a hard time08:48
Dr_Willismarz:  try mounting it by hand.   You did check the md5sum of the iso befor you put it on flash drive?08:48
Heavylobstershadghost: it is08:48
ruanmarz: you dont need them to run ubuntu, just to play 3d games etc08:48
marzDr_Willis i just followed the instruction on Ubuntu.com08:49
Dr_Willisjavahorn:   You have a single hard drive? you are installing  ubuntu also onto that single hard drive?08:49
marzDownloaded the .iso image08:49
ubottuTo verify your Ubuntu ISO image (or other files for which an MD5 checksum is provided), see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM or http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/answers/LQ_ISO/Checking_the_md5sum_in_Windows08:49
marzuse the usb software so i could boot it up using a flash drive08:49
Dr_Willismarz:  you did verify the iso image was downloaded properly?08:49
marzDr_Willis yup08:49
shadghostthe only drivers you dont need is video card... my tv tuner card needed some too08:49
Dr_Willismarz:  could be some quirk with your system and the installer. You can run the installer from  a terminal and monitor error messages.08:49
shadghostit wanted the loving too!08:49
ActionParsnipHeavylobster: is the system a branded pc or a laptop?08:50
Dr_Willisjavahorn:  if you are going to repartition a windows 7 install. i tend to do that from windows.  Windows i find can resize a NTFS MUCH faster then linux can.08:50
HeavylobsterActionParsnip: desktop i built myself08:50
ActionParsnipHeavylobster: ok what motherboard please?08:51
javahornDr_Willis: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/gparted.html -- i do see "Second Disk" option , during install from flash USB, after having installed Win7 in primary one.08:51

marzzzby the way how do i partition my HDD again without any os installed into it yet?08:51
javahornDr_Willis:  how to create space for Ubuntu from there?08:52
ruanmarzzz: use gparted on the livecd08:52
HeavylobsterI know my cpu isn't overheating, it handles stress tests just fine08:52
marzzzActionParsnip: oh sorry about that i was talking to dr_willis08:52
ActionParsnipHeavylobster: ok did you install the proprietary ati driver?08:52
Heavylobsterand i'm not seeing high cpu usage either08:52
HeavylobsterActionParsnip: yes, it's installed08:52
shadghostHeavylobster: not saying that is your problum, but still good to vacume out the computer every once in a while too08:52
ActionParsnipHeavylobster: ubuntu is light08:52
marzzzit seems the best way to install the software is installing it with an internet connection right?08:53
ActionParsnipHeavylobster: got the latest bios?08:53
Dr_Willismarzzz:  I tend to use the 'gparted live cd' :) that a must have tool for any pc toolbox.08:53

ActionParsnipHeavylobster: there may be some fixes there08:53
Heavylobsterright, i'll take a look08:54
javahornDr_Willis: how to do partition for ubuntu from Win7 ? i installed Win7, as it asked me to do.08:54
marzzzDr_Willis gparted live cd?  does live cd means booting the Ubuntu using the medium itself without installing it to the HDD right?08:54
Sleepwalker<Dr_Willis> i think parted magic is better]08:54
ruanmarzzz: gparted is on the ubuntu livecd.08:54
simon_anyone who can help me getting the new nvidiadrivers and fixing my native resolution?08:54
ActionParsnipjavahorn: win7 can resize its own partitions and leave free space, you can then install to that. If you'd planned your partitions rather than using 100% space you wouldn't have this issue08:55
Dr_Willismarzzz:  thats how live cd  and live-cd-flash drives work.08:55
ActionParsnipsimon_: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current08:55
Dr_Willismarzzz:  i have had systems with no hd's befor. just used the cd drive + live cd disks.08:55

marzzz:D thanks anyways08:56
javahornActionParsnip: Win7 ungraciously grabs all it has, now if it is 100%, what is the best way to go, so that i have ubuntu too, without any impact on either?08:56

jiltdilmarzz: System-->Administartion-->gparted08:56

shadghostbittyx: i dont use standby but the "user id (0)" screems root to me, and you dont run as root but as a unprivliged useraccount and by defult root has usermod -L enabled09:10

simon_ActionParsnip, did nvidia x server not suppose to update to NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.36 after the "sudo apt-get install nvidia-current" command in terminal?09:12
ActionParsnipshadghost: if you don't have a sudoers file, how will 'sudo su' work??09:12
ActionParsnipsimon_: it will install the 260 for you09:13
shadghostwell.... there was no non-root account on the computer to start with09:13
simon_it did not :\09:13
shadghostwell i should say no non-root above 1000 userlevel09:13
simon_still says 173.14.2209:13
ActionParsnipshadghost: in order to be able to use sudo there needs to be a sudoers fileto define who can use sudo, so deleting the sudoers file would remove the definition09:13
Dr_Willissimon_:  one normally reboots after installing the newer nvidia drivers.09:13
bittyxDr_Willis: well, i don't need it, so i'm not going to re-enable it. i mean, it's not that this "problem" stops my system from working, it's just that i'm kind of anal about errors that pop up for no reason (and don't seem to affect anything either. (:09:14

YerushalmiHey folks - I keep ending up in tty1 prompt when booting up and I can't seem to get to the regular desktop - can anyone help?09:22
Dr_Williszee313:  one normally uses a tool like unetbootin, or lili, or stuff from pendrivelinux.com or the system -> admin -> usb disk creatopr tool. to put an iso properly on a flash drive09:22
ActionParsnipzee313: you can grab the 1-2-3 installer from pendrive linux, or unetbootin. Your Qimo thing has very little support, why not install Ubuntu and then add the stuff which is default on the ISO you have and then you will get full support09:22

ActionParsnipYerushalmi: errors09:41
YerushalmiActionParsnip: Things with an (EE) or (WW) prefix, right?09:41
shadghostor can you09:41
shadghostwe can get him to do mail-file command =P09:41
ActionParsnipYerushalmi: exactly09:41
greppyor use pastebinit09:42
YerushalmiFirst one is "The directory "/usr/shar/fonts/X11/cyrillic" does not exist" but I doubt that's a problem :p09:42
YerushalmiFalling back to old probe method for vesa, Falling back to old method for fbdev09:42
shadghostYerushalmi: do the lines have somethihng like "error" in them09:43
rigvedi got the same error as Yerushalmi yesterday when trying to use Xnest. It said Fatal I/O error: something about unable to allocate resources09:44
shadghostif so you can less /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep error     (less to view it, the log next, | is the pipe command, grep looks for a pattren in a file, the pattren)09:44
YerushalmiNo other (EE) or (WW) prefixes. But the last line is ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log. Dunno if that's significant09:44
Fjodorshadghost: less is interactive, thus not suitable for piping09:45
Fjodorshadghost: Use cat instead, or simply supply the filename as the last argument to grep09:45
greppyshadghost: grep error /var/log/Xorg.0.log | less09:45
shadghostFjodor: and greppy it works, i just tried it09:45
Fjodorshadghost: If you "do" want to use less, though, you can search within it by typing '/' and the search string ;-)09:46
YerushalmiDoes grep only find the first instance or all instances?09:46
greppyYerushalmi: all09:46
YerushalmiBecause it only found the word "error" in the explanation line (WW) warning (EE) error, etc.09:46
shadghostFjodor: shadghost@weardass:~$ less /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep error (WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.09:46

Yerushalmishadghost: There were no EE lines or errors, and I copied into here all three warnings I received/09:49

Symmetriahttp://global.phoronix-test-suite.com/index.php?k=profile&u=anon-14046-9273-11967 <=== it worked :) thanks a million09:49
shadghostYerushalmi: it makes it easier to read a log file if you know there is a pattren to it so like all errors have "er" in it you can pass it to grep and look for all lines containing a "er"09:49
bajk-tragbarFjodor: well I found something in the Ubuntu wiki that is exactly what I am looking for, but linux typically it's fuzzing around in config files and doing this and that and not working eventually of course09:49
Yerushalmishadghost: I'm not sure what you mean - I grepped "error" and didn't get anything.09:50
rigved.msg ubottu !info arno-iptable-firewall09:50
shadghostYerushalmi: never mind09:50
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Well, on install, arno-iptables-firewall will ask a eries of questions and write a config file to match your answers09:50
Yerushalmisame for grepping EE. Nothing but the (EE) error explanation line and "(II) Loading extension MIT-SCREEN-SAVER"09:50
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: To reconfigure, issue 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure arno-iptables-firewall'09:50
bajk-tragbarokay I will have a look at it09:50
bajk-tragbarFjodor: and is there like a graphical frontend like in OS X where you could simply click your LAN connection and choose share?09:51
bajk-tragbar(but well networkmanager is the worst thing I ever met, so I doubt it will have something easy like this)09:51
shadghostFjodor: bajk-tragbar trying to configure a firewall? if so there is ufw by defult in ubuntu, and that is WAY easier then iptables09:52
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Well, you can use NM to make an ad-hoc network, to get the connection in the first place, but for the actual forwarding, ufw or arno-iptables-firewall is needed09:52
bajk-tragbarshadghost: I just want to share ONE Lan connection (theres only one plug :D) with another notebook over WiFi09:52
shadghostbajk-tragbar: ah09:53
shadghosti left all my papers in the lab today... but i have a printout on that09:53
bajk-tragbarwell, so, now my collegue plugged his Macbook in and clicked two things and now I am online here..09:53
backslash7What kernel version does the most recent version of 10.10 use?09:53
Fjodorshadghost: I find arno-iptables-firewall easy enough - haven't tried ufw. Does it come with a gui as bajk-tragbar is requesting?09:54
bajk-tragbarbackslash7: 2.6.35-25 I think09:54
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: And ok, that means problem solved, or?09:54
bajk-tragbarif there's something that is still so much broken in Linux, then it's NM^^09:54
shadghostFjodor: it wont do that, as it is a firewall09:54
bajk-tragbarFjodor: well, it damaged my linux honor :(09:54
backslash7bajk-tragbar: Thanks09:54
shadghostFjodor: but it is easy to learn firewall, you have ufw enable, ufw defualt deny|accept, ufw add (port) (ip:range), ufw remove (rule)09:55
bajk-tragbarbackslash7: don't know for sure since I use 2.6.38-4 :) but should be09:55
bajk-tragbarwell thanks Fjodor and shadghost I will have a look at it later :)09:55
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Well, OSX won't play with wpa-enabled ad-hoc networks, as it's not in the specification.09:55
bajk-tragbarhm, right, it's WEP09:55
bajk-tragbarFjodor: so this ip tables thing is "in the spec"?09:56
shadghostbajk-tragbar: good luck to you, when i tryed to foward a connection from wire to wifi with my laptop... well i had to reinstall ubuntu09:56
shadghostit is iptables (all one word)09:56
Fjodorshadghost: Well, a firewall on Linux is usually based on iptables, which is also responsible for masquerading...09:56
bajk-tragbarI tried this thing https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/ShareEthernetConnectionThroughWireless09:57
shadghostFjodor: ufw just provides a nice wraper arround iptables for ubuntu only09:57
YerushalmiSo does nobody know what to do to get me out of tty1?09:57
Fjodorshadghost, bajk-tragbar: iptables is the underlying framework. ufw and arno-iptables-firewall uses it09:57
bajk-tragbarbut the IPs I am getting here is for my notebook and after changing the network config thing my lan didnt work09:57
shadghostYerushalmi: sorry... totaly frogot about you09:57
Fjodorshadghost: Ah, didn't see that you also said that09:57
bajk-tragbarhm, maybe I will have a look at networkmanager's source and unbreak it *g* it doesnt even let me choose which network connection I need, something that every other OS is able since.. always?09:58
Fjodorshadghost, bajk-tragbar: And arno-iptables-firewall has worked well for me in the past and is easy to (re)configure via "sudo dpkg-reconfigure arno-iptables-firewall"09:58
shadghostYerushalmi: truthfully i have no ieda, i have been trying to keep fucked up linux systems running all day... and i dident even get arround to getting gui working09:58
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: How do you mean?09:58
bajk-tragbarFjodor: In Windows, if I disable a network adapter, it's DISABLED. In KDE when I disconnect a network, it instantly reconnects09:59
shadghostbajk-tragbar: try this yet? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing09:59
bajk-tragbarshadghost: nope, i'll look into it09:59
shadghostbajk-tragbar: try ifdown09:59
bajk-tragbaragain: I don't like config files and terminals09:59
shadghostbajk-tragbar: or /etc/init.d/networking down09:59
shadghostif you want _all_ networks down09:59
bajk-tragbarshadghost: another case: I have a LAN cable plugged in but want to go online using WiFi or cell network, it doesnt let me10:00
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Well, I'm using GNOME and the nm-applet does let me disable network interfaces. Try #kubuntu for that, perhaps?10:00
shadghostbajk-tragbar: you can bring down one interface with ifdown and ifup10:00
coz_Yerushalmi,  how did you get into there?10:00
bajk-tragbarFjodor: I already filed a bug report long ago but nobody cares^^10:00
shadghostlook at the man pages10:00
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Sorry to hear10:01
bajk-tragbarshadghost: but then again, I want to click on the network thing, click the little X and than I am all set10:01
bajk-tragbarFjodor: it makes me tear up little teddybears sometimes in the office^^10:01
Yerushalmicoz_: I end up in tty1 when I boot up. It started intermittently last week, but usually if I restarted a couple of times I'd eventually get out of it. As of last night, no more. I appear to be permanently stuck.10:01
shadghostbajk-tragbar: i have _NO_ ieda how to use gui for networking10:01
bajk-tragbarhmm... *think* good time to look into the materials and write one myself :)10:01
coz_Yerushalmi,   did you try   sudo  restart gdm10:02
bajk-tragbarthe situation is: The computer is connected with a LAN cable and a stupid proxy that doesnt let you out if youre not logged in (Novell stupid), so Linux doesnt get into the internet. Then I plug in my smartfone and want to tether. But then the networkmanager doesnt let me go through the mobile while the cable is still plugged in10:02
shadghostinfact if i know how to do something a gui way and a command prompt way, 95% of the time i use the comand prompt way10:02
Dr_Willissudo service gdm restart  (also)10:02
bajk-tragbarif I just plug out the cable, everythings fine10:02
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: I dunno about the KDE interface to nm, but perhaps someone in #kubuntu might...10:02
shadghostbajk-tragbar: you are in kde... well10:03
shadghostthat make a big diffrance10:03
bajk-tragbarisnt networkmanager used in both ubuntu and kubuntuß10:03
shadghostbecause i found how in a gnome way10:03
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Yes, but the gui might be different10:03

shadghostbecause i have this thing that looks like two arrows up in the uppwer right of my screen with the title bar and right clicked on it10:04
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: NM is sort of a daemon that you interact with via cli or guis10:04
YerushalmiBoth those commands, coz_ and Dr_Willis , give me "restart: Unknown instance:"10:04
bajk-tragbarso and the kde interface is f***ed up?^^10:04

Yerushalmicoz_: Yes and no. I'd been intermittently getting thrown into this prompt for the last week or so, but usually a couple of restarts and the computer would behave.10:06

flexdUh, i just installed ubuntu yesterday and the color scheme seems a bit.. off10:06
Yerushalmi10.04, I believe.10:06
flexdIt's too dark/odd? Not sure if it's just displaying wrong10:06
Yerushalmicoz_: But only firefox appeared to install; the new kernel didn't appear in the grub menu when the computer rebooted.10:07
naveendhanukahello all10:07
coz_Yerushalmi,   next time you boot   hold the left shift key down the whole time untill  you get the grub  menu... try booting into a previous kernel10:07
shadghostYerushalmi: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-common10:07
Fjodorflexd: Have a look in System -> Preferences -> Appearance10:07
Yerushalmicoz_: And running apt-get update and upgrade indicates that the kernels need to still be installed.10:07
flexdFjodor: changing between the themes doesn't really make a difference, still looks odd10:07
Fjodorflexd: Lets you select other themes. If they seem odd as well, you are more sure that there is an actual display problem10:07
coz_Yerushalmi,  ok sudo apt-get install -f10:07
Fjodorflexd: Ah, ok10:08

flexdone sec, trying to remember the thingy to take a screenshot hrm10:08
Yerushalmicoz_: I tried several different kernels and none of them work. Also, I couldn't install the new kernel without a network connection.10:08
Fjodorflexd: Can you describe "odd"?10:08
shadghostYerushalmi: sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-session10:08
shadghostmay work better10:08
flexdFjodor: If i can take a screenshot, yes.10:08
coz_Yerushalmi,  ok I am puzzled  you might want to try the other suggestions given10:08
flexdUnless that shows up as completely normal on your screen (and my laptops), then i'll at least know10:08
Yerushalmisudo apt-get install -f gives me "0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded"10:09
Fjodorflexd: I think that it may very well look normal on other machines10:09
flexdFjodor: yeah.10:09
shadghostYerushalmi: try the dpkg-reconfigure stuff10:09
coz_Yerushalmi, so you have internet connectivity10:09
flexdit's a ATI HD4870 card, drivers installed10:09
Yerushalmishadghost: Tried both those dpkg-reconfigure commands. I didn't get any messages, it just waited for a moment and gave me a new prompt, is that normal?10:09
flexd22" ASUS monitor and 19" samsung monitor10:09
shadghostYerushalmi: that means nothing got configured10:09
shadghosti think10:10
Fjodorflexd: Which drivers? Proprietary or open source?10:10
shadghostyou can try startx10:10
bajk-tragbarwell, maybe I will try wicd instead, this worked quite fine all the time and I think in KDE you can change the backend ujsed for network configuration in Information Sources control panel10:10
Fjodorbajk-tragbar: Ok, I don't know it but it may be good :-)10:11
flexdFjodor: Just tried resetting my monitor and it got even odder10:11
flexdSo it's a color/balance thing i think10:11
YerushalmiAh, startx. I saw startx on a forum and tried it . My screen goes black as if it's going to load something, and then gives me back the prompt. It loaded a whole bunch of loading-stuff text, ith the last line "Waiting for X server to shut down ddxSigGiveUp: Closing log"10:11
Fjodorflexd: have you tried the open source ones?10:11
flexdFjodor: No, i didn't know they existed.. and won't that leave me without hardware acceleration ?10:11
Guest34678Hi , What is the programming Talk channel pls ?10:12
shadghostYerushalmi: sudo xinit gdm10:12
coz_Guest34678,  I am not sure w hat you mean  "Talk" channel10:12
bajk-tragbarhm and any ideas why Policykit doesnt save my permissions anymore? I can click "Remember authorization" all the time, it doesnt remember it the next time I for example install a package10:12
Fjodorflexd: They work very well on my laptop and since ATI has opened the specs, you *do* get accell :-)10:12
coz_Guest34678,  unless you mean #ubuntu-offtopic10:12
icedteaGuest34678: depends on what programming language10:12
Yerushalmishadghost: That did basically the same thing. Same closing message too.10:12
shadghostbajk-tragbar: i think it only rembers it for 15 min10:12
coz_Guest34678,   you want the development channel? or just a channel for programming?10:13
bajk-tragbarshadghost: in 9.04 therre used to be a polkit configuration interface but it is gone now (I think because of some issues?)10:13
bajk-tragbarand I certainly dont want to dig through man pages10:13
Guest34678coz_ , actually i needed both.10:14
shadghostbajk-tragbar: can i can tail /var/log/kern.log10:14

YerushalmiThere were four segfaults here, two on console-kit-dae, one on x-session-manag, one on gdm-binary10:17

Yerushalmiall of them error 4 in libglib-2.0.so.0.2400.110:17
shadghostYerushalmi: that sigfalt appears normal10:18
YerushalmiThere's such a thing as a "normal" segfault?10:18
Fjodorflexd: In other words, I recommend that you try out the open source drivers, if for nothing else, to see if they have the same problem. If so, you might have a hardware problem on your hands...10:18
bajk-tragbarany ideas why 2.6.38 kernel is no longer available for maverick?10:19

flexdFjodor: Nonsense, it worked perfectly fine in windows (and still does) when i reboot.10:20
flexdI don't see how the open source drivers will make a difference, it's a color/lightness problem ?10:20

FjodorRaj007: Not sure - haven't had that problem10:48
Dr_Williswhen using vi - youmust rember its a 'modal' editor.. You are either in command mode, or insert mode, or oter modes.. use esc key to get back tocommand mode.10:48
FjodorRaj007: But possibly10:48
YerushalmiDr_Willis: I have no idea what I'm doing here!10:49
shadghostgrozamorei: -R can KILL systems10:49
Raj007Fjodor: yeah , i know :) like i said, COULD be CPU too.10:49
YerushalmiI tried :q, :!q, Ctrl+C, Esc...10:49
YerushalmiI think I'm stuck.10:49
YerushalmiAh, q! worked.10:49
rigvedYerushalmi: in vi, press Esc key and then the letter i. then change the logging to Yes. then press Esc key and then :wq. then restart10:49
FjodorRaj007: It could, but it never hurts to test the ram ;-)10:49
shadghostya tat10:49
grozamoreishadghost, I use it in a safe directory, just a game I download and try to launch10:50
shadghostsorry i dont use vi, just remverd that it needed that !10:50
rigvedYerushalmi: you must have made some change and then tried to quit without saving10:50
Yerushalmirigved: Esc and i don't appear to actually do anything....10:50
Raj007Fjodor: agree.10:50
shadghostgrozamorei: only one files should need the +x change it on taht one10:50
shadghostYerushalmi: do you have networking on the box10:50
rigvedYerushalmi: do you have internet connection on that box10:50
Dr_WillisYerushalmi:  hit escape key, then the : key, then  you are giving 'commands' use q! to quit.10:50
Yerushalmishadghost: I hope so, but I don't know if I do while in tty1.10:51
Dr_WillisIts worth learning vi someday... :)10:51

YerushalmiDr_Willis: How do I get into actual text editing?10:51
shadghostYerushalmi: try sudo apt-get install Linux Glados 2.6.32-27-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Wed Dec 1 23:52:12 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Lunux10:51
rigvedYerushalmi: sudo apt-get install vim10:51
shadghostnot that10:51
flexdYerushalmi: press i?10:51
Dr_WillisYerushalmi:  'rember vi is modal' - you hit i for insert mode...10:51
shadghostYerushalmi: sudo apt-get install linux-headers-2.6.32-29-generic10:51
YerushalmiDr_Willis: I did but I can't seem to type10:52
grozamoreishadghost: the point is, the command, any command with changing rights or setting an execution flag is not working. i write it in a console, nothing changing10:52
Dr_WillisYerushalmi:  i suggest eitehr quiting and using nano, or quiting and running the vimtutor program toleasn vi basics.10:52
YerushalmiDr_Willis: Or rather I can't seem to navigate10:52
rigvedit's better to run sudo apt-get upgrade then to install the linux kernel headers seperately10:52
shadghostgrozamorei: did you sudo it?10:52
ehidlevi is pretty evil for beginners10:52
YerushalmiOkay, I just used nano10:52
YerushalmiTo heck with it :p10:52
Fjodorgrozamorei: Which filesystem in on the partition you are in?10:52
YerushalmiI dunno why you guys didn't give me nano to begin with :p10:52
Symmetriawhats a reasonable time for a full kernel compile under ubuntu? trying to get a benchmark figure to compare my figures against10:52
shadghostYerushalmi: if you listend to me i said nano10:52
rigvedYerushalmi: sudo nano /etc/default/bootlogd10:52
ikoniaSymmetria: there isn't a reasonable time10:52
Dr_WillisI can do some complex editiong tasks in vi.. faster then the 'beginner' ubuntu users watchingme can follow.. :)10:52
ehidleSymmetria: depends totally on hardware10:53
ikoniaSymmetria: custom kernels are not supported here10:53
YerushalmiWhat format do I save to?10:53
erUSULSymmetria: depends on your cpu ram and kernel config10:53
YerushalmiOh, never mind10:53
YerushalmiIt works.10:53
shadghostSymmetria: forever10:53
rigvedYerushalmi: change the logging to Yes. save and restart10:53
=== X___ is now known as X__
YerushalmiOkay, bootlogging is enabled.10:53
Symmetriaikonia not trying to go custom kernel, trying to benchmark hardware speed :) on a complete kernel compile10:53
ikoniaSymmetria: don't be silly please.10:53
Dr_WillisTHere was some console text edfitor that was basically like the old dos editor.. but i cant recall its name. or even if its in the repos10:53
Symmetriathats not silly, thats a good speed benchmark10:53
ikoniaSymmetria: then that is not an appropriate test10:53
YerushalmiNow I restart and enter recovery mode10:53
ikoniaSymmetria: sorry, the silly comment was for shadghost10:53

=== AndIrc is now known as Guest6071
shadghostikonia: it is true10:54
ikoniashadghost: forever is not an appropriate response for a reasonable question10:54
shadghosti run my kernal compiles overnight when i do it10:54
Symmetria*hrm* ehidle will see what this does, Im using phoronix test suite on its build-linux-kernel test, which I presume is building *EVERYTHING*10:54
ikoniashadghost: that is not "forever" and it's offtopic here10:54
grozamoreishadghost: yes i did. i'm gonna try move files from ntfs partition, could help. :\10:54
Symmetriaaverage, 111 seconds10:55
Symmetrianot bad10:55
YerushalmiThere were a lot of invalid arguments there10:55
ikoniaSymmetria: I would suggest using the benchmarking programs rather than a kernel compile which can be affected by numerous things10:55
rigvedYerushalmi: nano /var/log/boot10:55
rigvedYerushalmi: good so you got the error listing?10:55
FjodorSymmetria: It also depends on $CONCURRENCY_LEVEL I have it set to 16, meaning that make-kpkg will use 16 threads. I have set it to that because my i7 system has 4 cores and hyperthreading, giving 8 logical cores10:55
Yerushalmirigved: Odd. Neither boot nor boot.log has changed.10:55
Symmetriaikonia been trying various tests, x264 encodes, mp3 encode tests, etc are about the only tests Ive found so far10:55
shadghostgrozamorei: chmod -R 777 /dir/*10:56
ikoniaSymmetria: there are benchmarking tools available.10:56
rigvedYerushalmi: check /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog10:56
shadghostis taht what you did10:56
SymmetriaFjodor heh, I'm using a concurrency of 24 since I have 12 x Xeon cores and hyperthreading10:56
Fjodorgrozamorei: No need to label yourself a noob. At least you identified the problem as soon as I hinted at it ;-)10:56
Symmetria*hrm* my x264 benchmark hit 100.52 fps, decent10:56
shadghosti wonder10:56
FjodorSymmetria: Sweet. I just didn't know if you were aware of it :-)10:57
Yerushalmimessages has that same libglib segfault I mentioned earlier10:57
shadghostYerushalmi: sudo mail10:57
Symmetriainterestingly enough, this new system seems pretty stable, I had major problems on the old system running lucid, upgraded it to maverick and it seemed to stabilize10:57
Abdi^Ezping me10:57
Symmetriagot this system running maverick from day one and its 100% stable10:57
Abdi^Ezping me!10:57
ikoniaSymmetria: this is getting a bit out of the "support" discussion10:57
grozamoreiFjodor: true, in some way. But! too bad i don't think of it myself, being a developer it's a shame. thank you so much!10:57
ikoniaAbdi^Ez: please stop10:57
Dr_WillisAbdi^Ez:  and that will prove what exactly10:57
ikoniaSymmetria: maybe #ubuntu-offtopic would be a good place, as it sounds interesting10:57
FjodorYerushalmi: Have you considered running memtest86?10:58
ehidleSymmetria: my GTS 450 encodes H.264 at 125fps :p10:58
Yerushalmisyslog doesn't have those error messages either10:58
Symmetriaehidle heh, I was doing 100.52 without any graphics card acceleration10:58
Fjodorgrozamorei: Could happen to all of us, I guess. And np :-)10:58
YerushalmiFjodor: I ran a memtest this morning, all pass10:58
FjodorYerushalmi: Ok, didn't know - sorry10:59
ehidleSymmetria: yeah, but my GTS 450 cost 1/20 what your twin Xeon cost :p10:59
ikoniaehidle: Symmetria #ubuntu-offtopic would be a good place to continue this discussion, it looks a solid topic10:59
YerushalmiFjodor: 'sok10:59
YerushalmiFjodor: Appreciate the help :)10:59
grozamoreishadghost: i already tried that. the problem was in the file system - it was ntfs. no matter what, i can't change rights in ntfs, just in ext-fs. shame on me not thinking of it :\10:59

thevishyanyone here on acer netbook with ubuntu ? how is the installation ?11:00
Symmetriatalking slightly more on topic, are there any SERIOUS disadvantages to running file systems on non-partitioned drives11:01
shadghost!aspierone | thevishy11:01
ikoniaSymmetria: depends which file system11:01
Symmetria(where drive size > X, it seems to be easiest to throw the file system straight onto the drive without partitioning)11:01
shadghost!aspireone | thevishy11:01
FjodorSymmetria: Not sure I get what you meen. There should be at least one partition, right? Or am I missing something basic here?11:01

FjodorSymmetria: Ok, didn't know that was an option - obviously I can't recommend anything about it then, sorry11:02
YerushalmiI apparently only have a loopback. Okay. In the meantime.11:03
SymmetriaFjodor only reason to really do it is when you have issues with partitioning because of the size11:03
Symmetriaikonia at the moment Im running no partition11:03
Symmetriastraight on the block size11:03
Symmetriablock device I mean11:03
jiltdilif i forget my grub password how should i overcome this?11:03
Symmetriajust wondering if there is a good reason to change that in the new arrays Im gonna add11:03
YerushalmiThe first command gave me "Removing any system startup links for /etc/init.d/bootlogd"11:03

ikoniaSymmetria: for me personally, for a production server, there are certain file systems that need to be seperate11:04
ikoniaSymmetria: certain ones which can be personal prefence, and certain ones which it doesn't matter11:04
Symmetriaikonia heh, we only do that on the SAN's though, not on the base operating system install11:04
Symmetriaso the base operating system install is broken down into partitions11:04
rigvedYerushalmi: the first part is right. not the second message11:04
ikoniaSymmetria: ahh, sorry, thought you where saying on your OS11:04
ikoniaSymmetria: in that case xfs will work fine on one "big" file system,11:05

Symmetriaand if the software load on the bond driver is gonna kill the machine at that kinda network rate11:13

Symmetriaarkanabar I'd agree with that on machines with low levels of ram, I'd disagree with it on machines with large amounts of ram11:14
Dr_WillisI always put a little swap partition on every hd i can. :) in case a live cd is needed. it can use swap.11:14

arkanabarthevishy: I'd suggest 2gb; you have the disk space to spare.11:14
rigvedYerushalmi: are you getting those?11:14
Fjodorthevishy, Raj007: In the olden days, one would normally use swap sizes double the ram size, but I'm not sure if that still holds11:14
erUSULno it does not holds in the days of multi GiB rams11:15
Yerushalmirigved: Well, this time I'm not getting any messages at all, just a blank screen. Hang on.11:15
SymmetriaI normally run about 16gigs of swap *MAX* and thats on machines that have 64gig+ RAM, anything more than that is pointless11:15
jiltdilthevishy,Raj007: use swap according to ur application work11:15
Symmetriaso thats a quater of the ram size11:15
arkanabarI've been known to disable swap entirely with only 1.5gb of RAM, but you gotta watch your system; if RAM fills up, the system locks.11:15

Symmetriaarkanabar heh, linux has a habit of doing nasty things when ram runs out even if you have swap :( particularly if your ram is being eaten by things like TCP windows, heh, push your tcp windows 2 high on a linux machine, run outta ram, it will kernel panic, irrespective of how much swap is available11:16
Symmetriabefore it even touches the swap11:17
FjodorerUSUL: Doing some gene prediction as late as today, however, I maxed out my 12Gb and used a healthy chunk of swap as well. And good point on the suspend thing!11:17
