edbianarrrghhh, I believe that the choices listed are the display modes that the card is capable. of.  Not sure what 'screen' is referring to.  I think it is the virtual software screen.  Meaning even if you had the hardware linux cannot support a monitor that is greater than 4096 x 4096 pixels.00:00

gwinbee__ScaroDj: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MaverickUpgrades00:57
edbianScaroDj, Every piece of software in Ubuntu is a package.  Unless you go around installing random stuff from the Internet. (even in that case a lot of things you install will probably be packages)00:57
edbianScaroDj, update-manager in gnome updates 'everything'00:58

ScaroDjedbian: yes00:59
Strykerupdate-manager -u in terminal ScaroDj00:59
edbianScaroDj, System -> Admin -> Software sources.  change the drop down from 'LTS releases' to 'normal releases'  then start the update-manager and you'll see a button to upgrade to the newest version.01:00
ScaroDjedbian: I've always done it with Kubuntu, but I'm currently (trying to) using Ubuntu01:00

edbianchris2, There are a ton of rules in iptables.   I'm betting one of them is blocking these incoming connections.  Turn them all off (using firestarter or the cli) and try again.01:29
ScarabDrownerI'll try that, but why is it whenever someone comes in to fix a problem, all we get are workarounds instead of real fixes?01:29

mickster04hilarie: sudo chown i think may be what you are looking for01:33
ActionParsniplisandros: what are you after drivers for?01:33
hilariemickster04: cd to dv/shm and sudo chown -i?01:33
DasEiRealEyes: oyu friggled around with alien ?!01:34
RealEyesDasEi: What?01:34
mickster04hilarie: i don't know the exact command as I aint all that pro, but chown changes ownership for things (ime files and folders) but it may well work for you01:34
noonianhilarie, what is dev/shm? you might just want to give yourself access to it and keep it owned by root01:34
ChogyDanRealEyes: reboot?01:34
lisandrosActionParsnip, i want to play HoN and the game just doesn't start01:34
DasEiRealEyes: paste : sudo apt-get remove --purge man-db --dry-run01:34
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)01:34

ActionParsniplisandros: ok, what is the name of the game01:35
hilarieActionParsnip  Mount dev/shm? I don't think its mounted, its a folder01:35
lisandrosActionParsnip, Heroes of newearth01:36
DasEiRealEyes: no, some other error, alien also likes to do so , sudo dpkg-reconfigure man-db01:36
ActionParsniphilarie: its actually a file, its a file which represents a block device01:36
HabstinatDasEi: I'm having a probably unrelated error installing a driver though. To make the screen resolution better. I need a nonfree driver. I'm able to download it with "Additional Drivers", but when it starts installing I get, "SystemError: installArchives() failed".01:36
ActionParsniplisandros: great, I suggest you use that in future so we don't need to do the clarification dance. Only use defacto abbreviations like TCP, UDP etc01:37
RealEyesDasEi: http://paste.ubuntu.com/576749/01:37
hilarieActionParsnip I have CD'd to dev/shm and typed in mount, and it says mount tmpfs01:37
RealEyesDasEi: Should I just reboot or something?01:37
luxgeekDasEi: That xinerama thing MIGHT help if my xorg.conf already existed :P It doesn't deal with having to create it from scratch.01:37
hilariewhen I do that, it says mount: can't find tmpfs in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab01:37
DasEiHabstinat: in a minute01:37
lisandrosActionParsnip, What do you mean?01:37
j_ayen_greeni've been having a lot of trouble with soft hangs in 10.4 lately, where the mouse moves but nothing responds. it just happened, and i see that it coincided with smartbackup doing a full backup. first the disk was pinned, understandably, but now I look at the nas and the fileset is created, and the disk isn't being accessed, but cpu is still pinned and ubuntu won't react01:38
HabstinatDasEi: Ok.01:38
DasEiRealEyes: first read, before type :01:38
ActionParsniplisandros: not everyone knows what HoN is, if you just use the full and proper name, its quicker01:39
noonianhilarie, if it is mountable you could do: "mkdir ~/Desktop/shm" then "sudo mount /dev/shm ~/Desktop/shm"01:39
ActionParsniplisandros: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giPiqDOU5i0    has a guide to installing the game01:39
DasEiRealEyes: sudo init 1 , will bring you to init 1 , try dpkg repair broken ... from that mini-menu, cmd will log you off , to get back :01:39
ActionParsniphilarie: you don't need to cd anywhere to run mount01:39
noonianhilarie, but i dont know what it is really01:39
CJO232I have windows XP and Ubuntu 10 with Grub 2 . After deleting Ubuntu ( data and os partition ) I got the "no such partition: grub rescue>" prompt and couldn't remember if this means that some config files for grub2 were deleted on deletion of ubuntu or if grub2 was deleted. rootnoverify  doesn't work for grub2 so do I need to use something like set root=?01:39
DasEiRealEyes: netroot  > sudo service gdm start01:39
ActionParsniphilarie: mount will show the mount point and copying files to the mount point will put the data into the mount point01:40
ActionParsniphilarie: all the files in /dev are owned by root, when the OS boots the devices are mounted and given access to the users as needed01:40
DasEiHabstinat: which g-card ?01:40
hilarieWhy can't I do what I did from my NTFS partition and create a link and put that on my desktop? that option is greyed out01:40
ActionParsniphilarie: just make a symlink to the mount point on the desktop, the data will be lost on reboot as /dev/shm is a ramdrive01:41
DasEihilarie: you can own the mountdir to regular user, that work with that01:41
ActionParsniplisandros: http://forum01.heroesofnewerth.com/showthread.php?t=17730301:42

HabstinatDasEi: "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver"01:42
hilarie@actionparsnip How do I create a symlink?01:42
ActionParsnipCJO232: you will need to reinstate the ntldr as you deleted the grub config01:43
DasEiHabstinat: gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list01:43
j_ayen_greenwould there be a reason why simplebackup would be keeping the cpu pegged after it had already created the tgz file in a full backup?01:43

FrozenFireAny ideas as to why the Flash plugin for Firefox would cease to display video, and yet still output audio? My younger sister's system is having such a problem. On Youtube, the player does not visually display, even though right-click context menus work, but she can hear the audio of the playing video.01:43
ActionParsniplisandros: what happens when you try?01:43
HabstinatDasEi: Ok.01:43
DasEiHabstinat: there is a block saying partner repos, uncomment the two lines for the deb's01:44
FrozenFireI tried uninstalling Flash and the plugin, then reinstalling, but the issue persists.01:44
lisandrosActionParsnip, i had mint 8 before ubuntu 10.10 and it worked, why can't ubuntu 10.10 witch is a newer version not work?01:44

lisandrosActionParsnip, Nothing, the screen goes black and back again like a flush01:44

hilarie@action Parsnip Ty :) found the forum post :) GKSUDO Nautilus for the win :)01:45
ActionParsniplisandros: obviously change the /mount/point bit01:45
lisandrosActionParsnip, how do i do that?01:45
DasEiHabstinat: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade01:45
ActionParsniphilarie: yes, gksudo for any gui app, sudo is not suitable for gui apps01:45
ActionParsniplisandros: press ALT+CTRL+T01:45
DasEiHabstinat: sudo jockey-gtk01:45
luxgeekHow do I get a "default" xorg.conf? Don't want to create a blank one since I wouldn't know what to put into it...01:46

DasEiluxgeek: sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg01:46
lisandrosActionParsnip, i mean how to change the mount/point bit01:46
luxgeekDasEi: Thx01:46
HabstinatDasEi: I'm currently in the middle of upgrading my system, so I'll run those commands after that's done.01:46

birdinatuxis it possible to dual boot ubuntu on a machine already conatining windows 7 without deleting windows 7?01:47
ActionParsnipbirdinatux: sure, resize the NTFS and install ubuntu to the free space01:47
tooStupid4Linuxmickster04: Thanks, I am trying to follow those instructions.  I cannot believe how hard it is to install Ubuntu....01:47
birdinatuxActionParsnip can the ubuntu installer resize safely or should I use partition magic or something of the sort01:48
ActionParsniptooStupid4Linux: depends on your mentality and hardware01:48
ActionParsnipbirdinatux: Win7 can resize its own partitions01:48

Demolitio1hey all.... anyone have problems with the Broadcomm B3/B4 drivers?01:50
luxgeekDasEi: Well, if that was supposed to do anything...I am unable to tell what...still am not finding an xorg.conf anywhere in /etc/X11/  OR /root01:50
tooStupid4LinuxActionParsnip: I can't, that does not support installing to RAID0 (although I am using one to try and recover Grub...)01:50
birdinatuxActionParsnip backup not needed, its a new comp... just didnt want to have to re-install win7 if I didn't have to01:50
DasEiluxgeek: should be in /etc/x11/xorg.conf01:50
ActionParsnipbirdinatux: no, win7 can resize its own stuff01:50
luxgeekDasEi: Nope, it's not there.01:50
ActionParsniptooStupid4Linux: i see, software raid I'm guessing :(01:51
tooStupid4LinuxActionParsnip: Indeed, and according to all the videos and articles it should "Just work".  And it does...if the CD did not hang I would have been done 7 hours ago!01:52
luxgeekDasEi: I don't know WHY it's not there...but it's not.01:53
ActionParsniptooStupid4Linux: in most cases it does. All my systems require only proprietary video drivers and everything works out of the box, probably because I don't use softraid (mainly cos I think it sucks)01:53
CJO232ActionParsnip: So that means I can't get the grub2 configuration files back for grub2 and use grub as the bootloader01:53
j_ayen_greenat first I could move the mouse over something, like a switch-workarea panel at the bottom of the screen and it would react to the the hover, but now not even that happens and the cpu is still pinned01:53
ActionParsnipCJO232: if you make a 500Mb ext4 partition and mount it as boot you can use grub there. If you intend to ONLY use windows you may as well reinstate the XP bootloader01:54
DasEihttp://paste.ubuntu.com/576759/ luxgeek, but that's just a structure, need to modify it !!!01:54
birdinatuxActionParsnip: COOL never knew about this utility in win7, now shrinking. :) Final question, not to mess up booting win 7 where should I place the boot loader for ubuntu?01:55
ActionParsnipbirdinatux: Use the default and the dualboot will be handled01:56

needhelp1gaelfx, no , what it is is, i stoped the scan around half way through (in the process of renaming the files) .. so now if i had two mp3 files that were for xyz.mp3 .. and i have nonamed.mp3 its pulling the metadata and renaming it to my set script for whatever .. artist_title_.mp3 .. so its giving me the error02:20

Senjaijbwiv: malware on linux? if its a repository item its already known to be save02:40
jbwivIdleOne, well, this is an older Debian box :-/ So not specifically an Ubuntu question, but it applies to binaries I might download for Ubuntu as well02:40
jbwivSenjai, it's not a repository item ;)02:40
IdleOnejbwiv: in that case you should be asking in #debian02:40
jbwivIdleOne, true. sorry02:40
Senjaijbwiv: Ubuntu has the package in their repositories, maybe its not in debian02:40
Senjaijbwiv: you can still grab it from the Ubuntu repos though.02:41
gartraljbwiv: general rule, if it comes from something or someone of questionable image/background: don't use it02:41
jbwivgartral, yes, good advice02:42
rwwSenjai: Mixing repositories/packages from different distributions isn't a particularly good idea. Best course would be for him to upgrade to squeeze or pin the squeeze repo and get the package from there.02:42

ThomasB2kIn 30 words or less, what's the difference between open source software and free software?03:12

marnargulusandru: kaffiene?03:36
rwwandruHA1123: Kubuntu comes with Dragon Player by default. I'd recommend VLC instead.03:36
DemolitioActionParsnip: so I'm now utterly confused. Additional Drivers manager indicates both wireless drivers are not activated- and yet here I am scanning networks.03:37
andruHA1123I mean, what do I type in the terminal to get KDE version of lInux dvd player?03:37
andruHA1123does "ogle' sound right?03:37

resnoRandom832: how do yo ucreate it?03:55
Random832with.... a text editor?03:56
Random832or fetchmailconf which is a separate python/tk tool03:56
resnohow do you create a file you dont know the syntax of?03:56
Random832look up the syntax of it03:56
Random832that's not what you were asking03:56
resnoRandom832: fetchmailconf requires x server to run03:56
Random832you don't have an x server anywhere?03:56
Random832https://calomel.org/fetchmailrc.html example fetchmailrc03:56
resnoRandom832: its a server... who runs X on server?03:57
Random832it's called ssh x forwarding03:57
marnargulusresno: did you see this http://theos.in/news/howto-configure-fetchmail-linux-or-unix-client-program-to-fetch-emails/03:57
Random832or, run fetchmailconf soemwhere else03:57
hexdump_nm it's setup properly on my server03:58

Random832not supported by whom?04:03
Random832have you tried looking at the actual fetchmail documentation04:03
resnoRandom832: do a quick google on fethcmail ubuntu and every guide says ubuntu 7.10.04:03
Random832why do you think ubuntu would need a special way of doing fetchmail?04:03
resnoi dont.04:04
resnoim curious as to why the conf files dont exist04:04
Random832what do you mean don't exist?04:04
Random832what would they have in them?04:04
rwwIf fetchmail weren't supported by Ubuntu any more, then there wouldn't be a fetchmail package in the repositories. There is. Therefore, it is.04:05
Random832they don't know your pop3 server, your username, your password04:05
resnothe base for setting up fetchmail? like every other does04:05
ActionParsnip!info fetchmail04:05
ubottufetchmail (source: fetchmail): SSL enabled POP3, APOP, IMAP mail gatherer/forwarder. In component main, is optional. Version 6.3.17-4ubuntu1.1 (maverick), package size 388 kB, installed size 888 kB04:05
Random832how exactly would installing a package create a conf file in your home dir anyway?04:05
Random832what other packages do that?04:05
rwwnone, because it's a violation of packaging policy.04:05
ActionParsnipRandom832: if there is not file and the app is configured as such, if there isn't one it will make a vaniall file04:06
resnoam i just stupid?04:06
Random832ActionParsnip: what would you imagine to be the contents of a 'vanilla' fetchmailrc? connect to a vanilla server log in with a vanilla username and a vanilla password?04:06
resnohow in the world would a normal person be able to create the conf file?04:06
rwwresno: by copying the example in /usr/share/doc/fetchmail/examples04:06
ActionParsnipRandom832: not sure, I dont use it04:07
Random832i think "normal" people are assumed to install a graphical email client on their desktop machines04:07
rww( /usr/share/doc/*/ is the normal place for example configuration files to be, btw. Good tip if you use command-line stuff like that a lot. )04:07
Random832the need fetchmail fills is kind of specialized, for if your email client _doesn't_ access pop3, yet you have a pop3 account04:07
resnorww: heh, why didnt that come up on my find?04:07
rwwresno: no idea, I just tuned in to #ubuntu04:08
ActionParsnipRandom832: websearch for example files, then just change the settings04:08
resnorww: i issued find / -name fetchmail, is that not right?04:08

ActionParsnipruffdog: it will tell you if the CD is good compared to the MD5 sum on the CD. You SHOULD have checked the ISO before burning but only a good ISO can make a good CD04:26

dj_segfaultGood evening.  I'm trying to set the CPU speed to "full blast" on my 10.04 system, but it keeps degrading to slower speeds.  I read up and stopped the ondemand service which is what I thought was changing it, but it still changes on me.  I'm using "cpufreq-selector -c 0 -g performance -f 2000000 ; cpufreq-selector -c 1 -g performance -f 2000000" which seems to work, but after a short time it goes back down to 1.3 or som04:27
ActionParsnipnoneaan: then its not right04:27
ruffdogActionParsnip, right.  Somehow I created a couple of CDs a couple weeks back that created fine.  But on install there were errors and I couldn't resolve it.  I then checked my ISO image (that I created the CDs with) against MD5 and the numbers were off so I redownloaded.  I mixed the CDs up though as I moved my desk today and I'm trying to ensure I have the right CDs.04:27
noneaanActionParsnip, when i clicked share folder, ubuntu installed sbmc automatically04:28
ActionParsnipruffdog: i'd find out which is good and discard the rest04:28
sk_ActionParsnip: after researching (lol), its custom pc04:28
ActionParsnipnoneaan: try a reboot. I dont use the gui way I always edit smb.conf then restart the smbd service04:28

noneaanActionParsnip, would i do .. gedit smb.conf ?04:29
ActionParsnipsk_: ok then check motherboard manufacturers site to see, you may be able to do it using a dos boot floppy04:29
ActionParsnipnoneaan: try the reboot first04:29
ruffdogActionParsnip, yep.  That's the plan.  Thus the question if booting the live CD and "checking for errors" would help me sort out what was good and bad.04:29

druciferre@frybye, Are you asking how to get get grub2 to show the boot option for Windows in a dual boot environment?04:39
hilarie@cesuransea1 you should be able to find them via system>administration>Restricted Drivers04:39

brontoeeeActionParsnip, this one i mean: http://pastebin.com/ZPHGNHpk04:41
ruanfrybye: if it detects windows, then it'll add it to boot04:41
druciferre@frybye: ruan is correct, you should be able to run sudo update-grub2 assuming you have not messed with the files in /etc/default04:41
icedtea /join #linux04:41
frybyeduring the update only ubuntu entries showed up in ther term window...04:42
ActionParsnipbrontoeee: it depends on the installed packages04:42
druciferre@frybye: are you sure you have windows installed correctly ?04:42
frybyewas working fine in dual boot situation with 10.0404:42
frybyejust dissapeared from the grub boot options after the -d upgrade...04:43
ActionParsnipbrontoeee: if you run:  dpkg -l | grep flash; dpkg -l | grep gnash; dpkg -l | grep swf04:43
brontoeeeActionParsnip, why? it should just return - no packages find, right?04:43
ActionParsnipbrontoeee: remove all the flash plugins then install only flashplugin-nonfree    and you will be fine04:43
frybyeis it possible that the win7 boot options are still in a grub.cfg or similar but have just been commented out?04:43
druciferre@frybye: if you're certain windows is installed correctly, you could configure grub2 manually to point to your linux partitions and Windows partitions... there is a guide on how to do it... hold on a minute and I will get it for you04:43
brontoeeeor 'nothing to uninstall'04:43
frybyedruc... thanks04:44
druciferre@frybye: no, the scripts rebuild everything from scratch04:44

frybyedruciferre: ok -04:44
ruanMagicJ: get the plugins from ubuntu software center04:45
druciferre@frybye:   https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2    scroll down to "custom menu entries"04:45
ActionParsnipbrontoeee: there are a few, running the dpkg one then removing what is there is a more graceful approach04:45

ruanMagicJ: search "gstreamer" on ubuntu soft center04:45
MagicJruan: ty - brb04:46
druciferre@frybye: before doing the custom menu entries, I would recommend going to the Editing Menus During Boot section and following that make sure you can actually boot windows04:46
piercedwaterWill someone please recommend some newsreaders that are cli and assemble binaries?04:46
ruanMagicJ: then install the "gstreamer extra plugins" codecs to play mp3, sid, mp3g1, etc04:46
druciferre@frybye: Also, since it is detecting your Linux partition, I would only Windows as a custom entry04:47
MagicJruan: it says I already have them/it04:47
=== dehuman_ is now known as dehuman
ruanMagicJ: strange, you could try reinstalling them04:47
frybyedruciferre: thanks a load...04:47
druciferre@frybye: one more thing... I don't know if you know this or not, but for a windows partition, you should model it after their "chainloader" example...04:48
MagicJwas ahead of you on that one - but actually I think the problem is not with the plug in but that movie player thinks it wants the wrong type = I can play them with rhythm box for example04:48

chaoschi all -- rt2870sta question -- 100% wireless functionality on Ubuntu and Mint livecds, when I install, functionality ceases.

awkisopenis there any way to redirect one URL to another URL in ubuntu?05:52
caffineshaghost: i set up an LVM running fedora. i want to split it in half to run ubuntu on half. i've done all the steps so far up to resizing the underlying filesystem. now i need to lvresize but i can't find the way to determine what LogicalVolumePath is.05:52
tecraapt-get install software-center ?05:53
shaghostcaffine: not my area05:53
j_ayen_greenor how do I skip loading gnome and just get the cli?05:53
shaghosttecra: what version of ubuntu?05:53
xanguaarrrghhh: synaptic05:53
ActionParsniparrrghhh: uninstall the unecessary kernels using software centre or apt-get and they will be removed05:54
ActionParsniptecra: its part of a standard install05:54
caffineshaghost: okey dokey. thanks anyways.05:54
arrrghhhActionParsnip: xangua, there isn't an "automatic" way?  I have to search and remove them by hand?05:54
jamiewantecra, applications menu at the bottom most likely05:54
ActionParsniparrrghhh: yep its manual, the old kernels are left so that if a new kernel is bad you can boot to the old one05:55
shaghostawkisopen: look at iptables and // or dns05:55
arrrghhhActionParsnip: no i know but i figured computer janitor or apt-get autoremove would do it...?05:55
awkisopenshaghost: I have, but those only redirect IPs, I need a specific URL to resolve to another specific URL05:55
shaghostj_ayen_green: do you want to keep dnome on system?05:55
shaghostawkisopen: dns routing tables?05:55
j_ayen_greenshaghost: yes, I just want to try to prevent it from autoloading that file system so I can run fsck05:55
awkisopenshaghost: where are those located?05:56
ActionParsniparrrghhh: autoremove only removes packages which are no longer needed if you get ruid of highabstraction apps, then the old libs which are not used by anything else will be removed05:56
tecrashaghost: i have backtrack4 rc2 installed05:56
tecraits not a standard install05:56
shaghostj_ayen_green: well i can tell you the simple way or complex =P   simple: break x-server (this i have done a _LOT_ on axadent05:57
arrrghhhActionParsnip: so manual is the only way?05:57
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish

shaghostI am trying to do too mcuh06:00
ActionParsniptecra: backtrack isnt supported here06:00
shaghosttecra: what about backtrace?06:00
ActionParsniptecra: backtrack is backtrack, ubuntu is ubuntu06:00
ubottuThere are some Ubuntu derivatives that we cannot provide support for due to repository and software changes. Please consult their websites for more information. Examples: gNewSense (support in #gnewsense), Linux Mint (see !mint), LinuxMCE (support in #linuxmce), CrunchBang (support in #crunchbang), BackTrack (support in #backtrack-linux), Ultimate Edition06:00

shaghostActionParsnip: bakctrace is ubuntu based... lightly06:00
shaghostit does use ubuntu backend06:00
shaghostbut a diffrent frontend06:01
ActionParsnipshaghost: based yes, but its not ubuntu, its backtrack06:01
shaghostbut i have been using backtrace a lot in the last 20 days06:01

DOokamiA text file named "x" ,, i want to "Locate*Find" it and open it with "gedit" ,, writing a single line in a terminal ,, how do i do that ?07:22

j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: it shows in Places, but can't get to it there07:23
robbiethe1stDOokami: I think, however, that you're being silly - You want to use find to find paths to things, then -remember- those paths and type/paste them in as needed.07:24
IsrafelDamn you TurboTax for not supporting Ubuntu!07:25
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: Hm... try installing gparted, open it up, and see if you can unmount/run fsck from there. It might help07:25
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: I've been up all night with this... 10.4 hung, i did the magic sysrq keystrokes to reboot, and it wouldn't reboot...kept dropping me into grub saying it couldn't init, and I've been trying to get to it to run fsck on it ever since07:25
DOokamirobbiethe1st: ,, :( i don't know why u guys think this is silly ,, isn't IRC the foundation of sharing knowledge ,, all i want is to "open a file with a terminal, without having to know it's exact path, only by it's exact name" .. is that really silly ? .. still trying ur input up there and thanks again.07:25

moltendorfHey all, been having a lot of fun with Ubuntu 10.10 server since I started using it about a week ago (prior experience in CentOS 5.5/Red Hat and DD-WRT +4 years of Ubuntu Desktop), and got into the server set-up mood, so I decided to convert my Mac Mini 2010 to a home server running Ubuntu 10.10 wirelessly. I had no problem connecting via eth0, but I can't seem to get the wlan interface to work, anyone know the packages I need to 07:27
Chilaquilesand viceversa07:27
shaghost!samba | Chilaquiles07:27
ubottuChilaquiles: Samba is the way to cooperate with Windows environments. Links with more info: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently and https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/windows-networking.html - Samba can be administered via the web with SWAT.07:27
mackdieselx27Chilaquiles:  You'll need to set up Samba on your Ubuntu box.  Just right click on a folder to be shared and choose Properties.07:27
shaghostChilaquiles: are the both linux?07:28
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: I'm not sure what I can tell you. Something's F'd up here. I'd try gparted, see what happens07:28
Chilaquilesyeah they are both ubuntu07:28
shaghostscrach samba07:28
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: can you be more specific? I never heard of gparted07:28
shaghostChilaquiles: there is a way to mount via ssh07:28
shaghostsecure socuit shell07:29
Chilaquilesbut I don't think I want taht07:29
shaghostChilaquiles: you want filesharing right07:29
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: "sudo apt-get install gparted" ;)07:29
ChilaquilesI want to have a network like in windows07:29
Chilaquileswhere you see the other computer in your networks07:29
Chilaquilesyou click networks07:29
shaghostChilaquiles: you can do a windows like one or you can mount the other computer network on the hardrive07:29
Chilaquilesand then you see the computers that are connected, etc.07:30
mackdieselx27Chilaquiles:  If you have local IP addresses on your boxes like 192.168.1.x then you have a LAN07:30

mkquistj_ayen_green: gparted is how linux partition drives07:30
mackdieselx27And all you need to do is set up Samba or SSH in order to share files07:30
Chilaquilesmackdieselx27: ok now can I se the other computer?07:30
DOokamirobbiethe1st: ... 1. it opened a "new empty file" not the one i have ... 2. i asked nicely .. did i offend u in anyway ,, ? .. it's just that other guys said "read the man" and i said "it's a lot to read" ,, hence i was looking for the "combinging of "find" and "gedit" command .. which is not written in there.07:30

shaghostssh is the secure way to do it, you will be ale to browse it via a gui and see it just like a windows fileshare in linux only07:30
mackdieselx27Chilaquiles:  If you have local IP addresses your second box should see the first07:31
ChilaquilesSamba? first they told me not to use it and now they tell me to use it07:31
shaghostif you do want a windows file share you can do samba07:31
Chilaquilesim confused07:31
robbiethe1stDOokami: and what does just "find / -name x" return? Does it actually return your file? If not... it won't help07:31
moltendorfAnyone familiar with running Ubuntu Server 10.10 on a Mac Mini over Wireless?07:31
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: it's already installed. how do i invoke it? just sudo gparted gave me a blank screen and said nothing was found07:31
shaghostssh is the secure way to do it, as you mount the other computer harddrive in your own, so you can see it all and it is automatical there on bootup, samba is the windows file share thing where you can view it when you connect07:31
ChilaquilesI have done ssh but all i see is a terminal with no GUI07:31
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: Try looking in the start menu under 'system' or something07:32
shaghostChilaquiles: sec, i will find a guide07:32

mackdieselx27More info on SSH:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSH07:32
Chilaquilesshaghost: never07:32
robbiethe1stDOokami: See, this is why we generally don't do it in one step. that command will work perfectly if find returns one file. If it returns 0 files, you'll just get a blank new file. If it returns two or more... it might open them all, or just the first one07:33

DOokamirobbiethe1st: i understand, and thanks ,, i'm asking in case there was only one file that i can look for xxx.text for example ,, anyhow ,, i tried "find / -name x" and no result ,, what am i typing wrong plz ?07:34

ubottuChilaquiles: sshfs is a !Fuse based filesystem which allows you to mount a remote system over !SSH - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SSHFS for instructions07:34
robbiethe1stDOokami: No file named 'x' exists on the disk?07:35
robbiethe1stDOokami: Remember, linux is case-sensitive.07:35
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: and when I try to have it check the file system, it comes back with an error that's it's mounted or open exclusively07:35
rwwDOokami: -name x matches files with the name 'x'. For files with names containing 'x', do -name *x*07:36
robbiethe1strww, DOokami: use quotes around your -name string if you use a wildcard(*) in it - -name '*x*'07:36
robbiethe1stOtherwise it doesn't work quite right sometimes07:37
DOokamirww i want to find a file named called "ctest" .. so i write " find / -name ctest" ?07:37

zcat[1]trying to set up an ubuntu server with raid. during the install it put grub on both drives but if I try to boot with either drive unplugged it can't boot. Not much point having raid if it simply doubles the chance of the system becoming unbootable rather than reducing the chance...07:39
noah1989i found that you can use consolechars to set the console (non X) font07:39
sk_robbiethe1st: cntl+alt+f7 doesn't do anything, but any f1-f6 send me back to the text only07:39
zcat[1]so how can I fix this so that raid works how it's supposed to?07:39
noah1989is there a way to set a margin so that the console starts 100px from the left?07:39
robbiethe1stDOokami: That means you're looking in a directory that you don't have permission to access. try with "sudo find ..." or only look in, say, your home directory "/home/*username*/ instead of /"07:39
noah1989because i have an unusual screen that always swallows some pixels on the left side07:40
robbiethe1stsk_: Yes, those are 6 virtual terminals. Your X server may have crashed - try logging in, and typing "sudo service gdm restart"07:40
KoterpillarI want clients connecting via VPN to share the server's internet connection, can anyone recommend a guide?07:40
histonoah1989: probably in your .bash_profile07:40
Koterpillarsk_, f8?07:40
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: the unmount is grayed. so it's not that it's mounted...which i guess leaves the other option, that it's opened exclusively by something, or marked opened exclusively07:41
DOokami1rww: what's the syntax to find a file called "ctest" ,, looks like i got something wrong in the syntax ..07:41
noah1989histo: hm.. that could fix it for the bash prompt. but i want the whole console to be constarained07:41

histonoah1989: what's the problem?07:41
rwwDOokami1: find /searchpath -name ctest07:41
DOokami1rww if i want to look the whole disk then ?07:42
noah1989histo: i want the console to use only the right part of the framebuffer07:42
noah1989histo: because the left-most 100 px are off screen07:42
zcat[1]am I visible?07:42
histonoah1989: why not fix that instead of circumventing the problem?07:42
rwwDOokami1: sudo find / -name ctest07:42

robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: Hm, I don't know. Try googling?07:42

moltendorfzcat[1]: I'm asking questions about the server version, and am getting no response either. :S07:43
noah1989noah1989: because fixing this would mean optimizing the omap3 display driver kernel code..07:43

j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: been doing that for hours ;)07:44
noah1989histo: no X07:44
histonoah1989: what about appending a vga code to the end of the kernel line?07:44
histonoah1989: something like vga=77107:44
zcat[1]robbiethe1st, I guess so.. did the install with a 'fake raid' card originally, decided to just plug both drives into the motherboard. It's whatever the ubuntu server cd calls raid.07:44
noah1989histo: this is happening on a ARM board, it has a completely different display driver07:44
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: unless ubuntu is opening it when it boots, it must be something in the file itself that is showing it to be opened ... because it's like that as soon as i boot07:45
zcat[1]perhaps I should just try a fresh install, perhaps it'll come right next time07:45
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: Um... first result for "ubuntu ext4 partition exclusively opened" http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=167470907:45

j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: it's amazing what word choice can do :D  google's not as smart as they would have ya think07:45
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: try typing "cat /proc/mdstat" if it exists, you're using mdadm software raid. If not, it's a fakeraid07:45
jefimenkozcat[1]: during the install of grub it should have asked you about whether to boot with a degraded disk07:45
robbiethe1stj_ayen_green: I suppose; I've never had trouble for some reason.07:46
jefimenkozcat[1]: did you tell it to allow booting with a degraded disk array?07:46
noah1989histo: no. this is on a beagleboard. it has no vga-compatible graphics07:46

TheYellowGTOjoin #moto-atrix07:46
zcat[1]jefimenko, yeah, due to the stupid highpoint fakeraid card none of that worked, can't recall the error. I think I might just do a fresh install again07:47

robbiethe1stsk_: did you see any text before? Or just +1 stopped08:05
zcat[1]going to try following this howto ..08:05
jefimenkoi'm in the busybox shell right now, and i don't see the RAID disk in /dev/disk-by-uuid/08:05
ActionParsnipCodemagician: and what driver please?08:05
sk_robbiethe1st: no text before08:05
shaghostWilliwaller: flash is buggy in linux, for youtube go to youtube/html508:05
codemagicianWilliwaller, I had same problem and had to remove adobe flash and use open source version in its place08:05
robbiethe1stsk_ try typing "sudo cat /var/log/X *tab*08:05
jefimenkoi mean, /dev/disk/by-uuid/08:05
codemagicianActionParsnip, what do I type in command line to discover the drivers?08:05
DOokami1ActionParsnip: To find and open a file named x via gedit using only the terminal08:06
DOokami1sudo find / -name x -exec gedit {} \; .... worked perfectly ,, Question though ,, why the terminal kinda stop responding after that ?08:06

histozcat[1]: I belive you are looking for a RAID 108:06
robbiethe1stsk_ Ok, now take the above command and add '| less' to the end of it(press the up key to get the prev command)08:07
ActionParsnipCodemagician: sudo lshw -C display08:07
j_ayen_greenrobbiethe1st: well, since the software in question had a newer version on 10.10, i guess it -is- possible since 10.04.2 came out later that it also has a newer version... so I'll download 10.04.1 and try it, and if that fails, look for a minimal slack install :(08:07
zcat[1]histo, right now I'm looking for a hammer...08:07
Williwallershaghost, codemagician, ok thanks, will try that08:07
histozcat[1]: that may or may not help matters08:07
zcat[1]but yes, I know. raid 1 simple mirroring is all I want!!!08:07
codemagicianshaghost, my flash container crashes every single time I bring up youtube08:08
codemagicianshaghost, on both my 10.10 desktop machine and 9.10 netbook08:08
zcat[1].. and also that it boots when either disk is unplugged because that is the entire point of having raid at all here...08:08
shaghostcodemagician: sounds like a personal problum, i recoment youtube.com/html5 and chrome08:08
ActionParsnipDOokami1: gedit has the control. Once you close gedit you will get it back08:08
zcat[1]so that the box is more reliable, not less08:08
codemagicianshaghost, its never worked correctly ever for me08:09
shaghosti should go to bed08:09
shaghosti am getting mean now08:09
codemagicianActionParsnip, configuration: driver=nvidia latency=008:09
nishantis it possible to open Webmails in IE like interface ?08:09
sk_robbiethe1st: alright! I see text about the X.Org X server 1.9.0;08:10
histozcat[1]: yeah . Did you get the link from ubottu08:10
codemagicianActionParsnip, there doesn't appear to be any numbers with that output to indicate the driver location or version...08:10
nishanti mean IE opens my mails using the web email client , what is the option i have for this in Linux08:10
histocodemagician: are you running 32bit or 64bit os?08:10
ActionParsnipCodemagician: ok if you run: nvidia-settings  ,what driver version do you have08:10
robbiethe1stsk_: You can use up/down to scroll, along with pgup etc.08:10
zcat[1]histo I can't reallt follow it.. it seems a bit vague around step 6 ..08:10
behel1thow mature are nvidia drivers?  is 1080p video acceleration supported08:10
robbiethe1stsk_ go down to the bottom and look for something about x ending/quitting etc08:11
codemagicianhisto, 32bit08:11
histozcat[1]: if you are using a newer vwersion of the alternate or server install disk you can create the mirror during setup08:11
codemagicianhisto, using i7 core processor08:11
zcat[1]like if I tell it to automatically partition sdb then I won't get an identical layout, it'll make that /home instead08:11
ActionParsnipnishant: any web browser can use webmail08:11
jefimenkothird-party nvidia drivers suck for me. i get better video performance on the open-source driver08:11
histocodemagician: hrm.. that's odd I don't experience that problem with flash.08:11
robbiethe1stbehel1t: Through VDPAU, yes. I've done it with a blu-ray rip I made myself, and mplayer08:11
histojefimenko: that's impossible08:11
BaKeRhello can any one help me08:11
codemagicianActionParsnip, 260.19.0608:11
jefimenkohisto: somehow it is possible for me08:12
codemagicianActionParsnip, Server Version Number 11.008:12
nishantActionParsnip, I can open webmail but it does give some advanced option like IE does . I suppose thats because the exchange server used is MS by my company08:12
BaKeRwith ubuntu 10.10 boot screen?08:12
codemagicianActionParsnip, Server Vendor Version 1.9.0 (10900000)08:12
ActionParsnipbehel1t: yes. Nvidia have been supporting Linux for ages08:12
Sleepwalkernishant: firefox, opera, chrome, chormium or any other browser should do the job08:12
codemagicianActionParsnip, NV-CONTROL Version 1.2408:12
jefimenkohisto: i can fullscreen a youtube video and it's so choppy (2 fps) on the nvidia driver. with the opensource driver it's smooth08:12
shaghostI hace AD and excnage by m$$08:12
BaKeRboot screen is stuck in 8 bit or somthing08:12
nishantSleepwalker it all does the job of opening webmail but it doesnt look or have the features of IE based webmail client08:12
zcat[1]I have reinstalled this box six times now. This is attempt #708:13
nishantI suppose its because the Exchange server is MS08:13
zcat[1]so I am starting to get very frustrated08:13
shaghostnishant: recomend a linux slution for them08:13
ActionParsnipnishant: if its in some way optomized for IE then you are out of luck.08:13
Sleepwalkeryou can use IE with wine08:13

shaghostBaKeR: boot screen or login screen?08:14
nishantwhat is the name of the Web Client in IE ? does it have some special name >08:14
zcat[1]OK there's already a software raid device from my last attempt and it won't let me delete it because it's already in use. what now?08:14
BaKeRi tried about ever tut none work08:14
BaKeRi tried that tut08:14
codemagicianActionParsnip, how are those values... am I using good drivers?08:14
sk_robbiethe1st: Not seeing anything about x ending/quitting; the bulk of text is describing my output devices like monitors, keyboards, mice08:15
zcat[1]cat /dev/zero > /dev/sda briefly, then again /dev/sdb .. now try and find your raid!!!08:15
ActionParsnipCodemagician: there is a ppa with 270. I'd find guides for the proprietory driver maki08:15
zcat[1]hopefully the installer won't be confused by previous fails this time08:15
zcat[1]so this is attempt number 8 I guess08:15
ActionParsnipMaking xorg each your cpu08:15
codemagicianActionParsnip, what is ppa please? and maki?08:15
oliver_BaKeR , i'll test it later will respond then. Hopefully anyone here can help you :D For the next time just ask your question don't ask if anyone can help you :D08:16
robbiethe1stsk_ Huh. and ctrl+alt+f7/f8 won't bring you back to your X window?08:16
codemagicianActionParsnip, aha making xorg each your cpu...08:16
BaKeR;) thanks08:16
codemagicianActionParsnip, so there is a better way to configure xorg with my particular card?08:16
ActionParsnipCodemagician: maki was a typo. GT540 phone + regular thu08:17
sk_robbiethe1st: ctrl+alt+f7 doesn't change anything on the screen; /f8 sends me to a blinking underscore (_);08:17
BaKeR(uvesafb mode_option=1280x1024-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap) this line is the only line that does anything08:17
ActionParsnipThumbs = typos08:17
BaKeRit fixes the shut off splash but messes up the startup08:17
codemagicianActionParsnip, how do I go about switching the drivers?08:17
robbiethe1stsk_: I don't know, sorry. It looks like X isn't working - What drivers were you using, BTW? Nvidia? ati? intel?08:18

sk_robbiethe1st: nvidia for the monitors08:18
ActionParsnipCodemagician: yes, you just need to find it. My web access is dog slow so i'm not going to be much direct help08:19
BaKeRoliver how are you going to test it08:19
robbiethe1stsk_: manual install?08:19
codemagicianActionParsnip, so I google for nVideo GeForce 210 drivers for my particular 10.10 ubuntu?08:19
robbiethe1stcodemagician: Nvidia has a single blob driver for all recent cards.08:20
robbiethe1stcodemagician: You want to download the 260/270.xx unix drivers08:20
sk_robbiethe1st: could I somehow quit in each of the virtual; basic install with additional driver support from administration>additional drivers08:20
zcat[1]OK, at the end of step six I did 'write changes to disk' and now it's going ahead and doing the install on /dev/sdb only.. didn't give me the option of setting up raid. what did I miss?08:20
zcat[1]so now this will be install #908:20
codemagicianrobbiethe1st, where do I get them from... directly from nVidea?08:20
robbiethe1stsk_: I don't know. You may want to just download the package streight from Nvidia, install it.08:20
zcat[1]and I have been trying to sort out this server for 6 hours now08:21
BaKeRdoes anyone here have amd 64 x208:21
zcat[1]no, seven hours08:21
robbiethe1stSelect your card, etc and unix 32/64 depending, and download it08:21

robbiethe1stThen, you are going to have to: 1. kill xorg if it's running(switch to VT#1, ctrl+alt+f1), 2. login, 3. "sudo chmod +x *downloaded file*08:22
codemagicianrobbiethe1st, i have 32-bit ubuntu installed. does the 32 or 64 refer to this, or to the memory interface on the nvidia card?08:22
robbiethe1stcodemagician: 32 then08:22
zcat[1]so if I don't raid swap and one drive fails, will the system still boot or will it crash and complain that a swap device in /etc/fstab is missing?08:23
sk_robbiethe1st: alright! i'm going to reinstall ubuntu. and then go for the drivers again. thanks anyways! I just wonder if by pressing alt+ctrl+f1/f2/../ will cause this @kncluster, or if when I shut down the computer during the text-only terminal causes a change in the files08:23
=== lance_ is now known as Guest86444
robbiethe1stsk_ Uh... niether. More than likely, your nvidia drivers don't like the current kernel/haven't been installed properly08:24

codemagicianActionParsnip, the nvidia webiste offered me a lower version number when I selected my graphics card from the list?08:26
shaghostWeazel[Work]: dont overlap windows =P08:26
BaKeRnice text boot?08:27
robbiethe1stActionParsnip: I've almost never had the "additional drivers" installer work right. Probably cause I'm using Kubuntu. But it often crashes or just plain doesn't install right08:27
Archaeopteryxxhow do I reset all the workspaces or something? all my windows are completely screwed up08:27
Weazel[Work]shaghost: where do i unset the overlap windows ?08:27
shaghostWeazel[Work]: truthfully if you find a real slution to the problum i would love to know08:27
robbiethe1stBaKeR: Reboot, at the grub menu "edit" the command line and remove "quiet splash", then ctrl+x to boot08:27
robbiethe1stAnd watch08:27
Weazel[Work]didn't used to have it before, i think one of the updates gave me this annoying issue08:27
BaKeRim not much of a fan of text during boot08:28
shaghostWeazel[Work]: then it may be a diffent one then mine, as mine only happens with popup type things in chrome08:28
Weazel[Work]for me is with everything08:28
robbiethe1stSuit yourself, I suppose. I'd prefer to know why things aren't working, myself.08:28
BaKeRi have burg installed over grub08:28
zcat[1]AAAAAAAAAGHHHH so now I've configured sda1 and sdb1 as raid. What next? I can't put / anywhere because the partitions are raid. There's no other device appearing where I can put / ...08:28
Weazel[Work]lets say i'm in terminal and hitting the hotkey for open new window08:28

adammw111How can I try and get it running again?08:29
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: Two things: 1, ubuntu doesn't like fakeraid nicely. 2, for mdadm raid, you need to install "mdadm" before installing on your livecd08:29
BaKeRRobbie will it just show text?08:30
ubottuPLEASE DON'T SHOUT! We can read lowercase too.08:30
robbiethe1stBaKeR: Yes, until X starts. It'll show all the boot/debug info.08:30
zcat[1]it's NOT fake raid. I threw the highpoint shit in the bin this is just two sata drives on the bmotherboard sda and sdb08:30
Archaeopteryxxdoes anyone know where I should go poke around to get rid of these 36 workspaces?? my whole desktop is completely screwed up :(08:31
BaKeRdo you know a working fix? Robbie08:31
zcat[1]and when I booth the installercd I see it loading mdamd packages off the internet every time so I think I have those packages?08:31
ActionParsnipArchaeopteryxx: i08:31
zcat[1]also the howto doesn't say anything about loading mdadm either08:31
jamiewanArchaeopteryxx, right click on the switcher and make 4 colums and 1 row08:32
ActionParsnipArchaeopteryxx: in ccsm -> general in the desktop size you should be able to edit there08:32
BaKeRRobbie my problems is When booting up it shows ubuntu splash screen but in low bit08:32
Archaeopteryxxit doesn't work if :\08:32
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: Dunno about any howto, I'm telling you how -I- did it. 1. install mdadm. 2. using the command-line, create my raid volumes. 3. install, and set /dev/mdN as your instlall drives08:32
BaKeRand when i shut down it show texts08:32
Archaeopteryxxthe workspace preferences window keeps flashing and doesn't change the number of workspaces08:32

ActionParsnipMasterZ: the hardest way. Backup is crucial these days.08:49
zcat[1]MasterZ, I already got pointed to a howto. I followed it step by step as closely as I could. It didn't work. Please find me a howto that actually works?!08:49
BaKeRso what does zero co mean?08:49
zcat[1]that was the howto that failed.08:50
BaKeRzcat im fillin ya man08:50
BaKeRtried step by step and notta08:50
BaKeRdifferent thing but same ass fustration08:50
ActionParsnipBaker: it was going to be "zero consequence" I thought that was o08:50
zcat[1]I followed it. Not I have partitions called /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdb1 that ae type raid autodetect. Where do I put my root?!!!08:51
zcat[1]after following that howto I don't have any kind of MD device ...08:51
BaKeRso what you are telling me actionparnsip08:51
joeb_ActionParsnip- i can't check each and install and apply .. im on ubuntu 10.10 i have to click on 1 and then install it08:51
ActionParsnipObvious as i continued the typing on the next line. Just as i have on this li08:51
BaKeRit doesnt matter what res?08:51
zcat[1]all I have are two partitons I can't do anything with08:51
ActionParsnipLine to make an example08:52
visual1ceactionparsnip do you get paid to help ppl in here?08:52
zcat[1]has anyone here set up raid from a server isntall disk? Other than me back on 6.06 where it was easy and I just figured it out myself...08:52
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: You08:52
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: You'll have to -somehow- create a mdadm raid-device on top of those two partitions08:53
ActionParsnipBaker: you said you were using 64bit but in your situation it means nothing08:53
robbiethe1stzcat[1]: try 'man mdadm' for instructions08:53
ActionParsnipvisual1ce: only if I do it at work ;-)08:53
zcat[1]yes mdadm --assemble /dev/md0 /dev/sda1 /dev/sdb1 -- it says md0 already esists and is in use, but it doesn't show up in the partition thingy and if I try mke2fs -j /dev/md0 it says it has zero size08:54
ActionParsnipzcat[1]: only in hard raid with a beefy controller card08:54
ikoniazcat[1]: sudo fdisk /dev/md008:54

PEMooh the chan exists :)09:16
ramzyneed to install "compat-db-4.1.25-6.i386.rpm", Help plz ;( ;( ;( ;( ;( ;( ;(09:16
BaKeRlol you won robbie09:16
ubottuRPM is the RedHat Package Management system. Ubuntu uses !APT, not RPM. RPM packages are not supported (the package "alien" can allow installing them, but it's quite dangerous and unsupported)09:16
robbiethe1stIt's just one of those things that - imho - isn't exactly needed or useful.09:16
PEMi was wondering about something... i downloaded the latest desktop ubuntu cd, burnt it, then booted from cd to make an install09:16
BaKeRvery much agree09:16
PEMbut the install will not work past the install menu09:17
BaKeRcant complain. lovin ubuntu better than mac09:17
PEMi get the "loading" screen for hours, and if i esc, i see shitloads of errors09:17
hrnaPEM, i got stuff like that once09:18
BaKeRPEM did  you remove the disc after rebooting09:18
dr_Willispem you did check the md5 of the iso file?09:18
robbiethe1stPEM: boot into the OS, "try" or whatever it's called09:18
hrnaPEM, but it was because of the broken memory09:18
PEMi tried almost every menu :P09:18
PEMfrom try to install09:18
PEMthe install failed09:18
PEMi believe it is because my primary disk is a ssd09:18
PEMbecause after trying to install it on an onld machine, it worked09:19
bonjoyeePEM: did you try the F6 options?09:19
PEMF6 ?09:19
dr_WillisSSD shouldent matter,09:19
bonjoyeePEM: yes..there are some advanced options...on the first menu screen09:19
PEMi tried the memory, disk checks, the try ubuntu without installing, and install ubuntu09:19
moltendorfSo I guess nobody here has any experience with Ubuntu Server 10.10 and wireless?09:19
PEMbonjoyee well i thought just hitting install would somehow work :P09:19
PEMi'll have a check at the advanced options...09:20
dr_Willismoltendof would totally depend on the wireless chipset.09:20
moltendorfIt's Broadcom b43 series.09:20
dr_Willistheres a lot of varoity in broadcom b43's09:20
PEMbonjoyee i'll check that before giving up on the install ^^09:20
BaKeRPEM what exactly is your problem?09:20
dr_Willissome use the sta driver. some use the older B43 drivers.09:21
moltendorfI'll see if I can pull a model number from within Mac OS X.09:21
PEMwell just that hitting install does not work :)09:21
BaKeRok got cha09:21
PEMand errors are going way too fast to read them09:21
moltendorfhttp://support.apple.com/kb/sp505 that's mine.09:21
BaKeRPEM you need to set ext4 journals09:21
BaKeRsomething like that09:21
BaKeRseletct / that means root09:22
PEMBaKeR from the advanced options ?09:22
bonjoyeeBaKeR: thats not true.. PEM is just loading the live cd for the first time..09:22
moltendorfBut last time I checked, all it gave me was Broadcom B43xx Wireless Adapter.09:22
BaKeRnot shure  highlight the hard drive you want to install09:22
BaKeRclick change09:22
BaKeRi think09:22
PEMbonjoyee exactly09:22
BaKeRyou should see the options09:23
PEMcannot even reach the hdd selection menu :P09:23
bonjoyeePEM: a livecd should have nothing to do with your hdd or the file systems or the hdd partitions...09:23
BaKeRso when you put in the disc and boot is just shows code?09:24
PEMbaker, i get the first menu where you can try / install / check disk / memory etc09:24
PEMif i hit install,i get a loading screen, with the little squares09:24
PEMfor hours...09:24
moltendorfCard Type: AirPort Extreme (0x14E4, 0x90); Firmware Version: Broadcom BCM43xx 1.0 (
robbiethe1stPEM hit try09:25
PEMif i press esc, i see the console throwing shitloads of errors at my face :P09:25
BaKeRmmm i would reburn or what not09:25
PEM"try" does not work either09:25
robbiethe1stAnd yes, try re-burning09:25
BaKeRwhat ubuntu are you using09:25
dr_Willisand the errors are what pem?09:25
PEMand i could install ubuntu on another machine with the same cd09:25
PEMdr_Willis cannot read them, it's going too fast09:26
robbiethe1stPEM: Perhaps the CD drive's going? Try swapping cd drives09:26
moltendorfIs that of any use? Google isn't spitting out anything helpful for me.09:26
bonjoyeePEM: first make sure you have the correct cd architecture 32bit or 64bit....else you could also try the alternate install cd...09:26
robbiethe1stI ran into that before09:26
PEMBaKeR desktop version, and server version does the same09:26
PEMi tried both 32 and 6409:26
dr_Willispem so they are repeating? ctrl-s/ctrl-q or the pause key may pause them09:26
PEMdr_Willis tried, but does not work09:26
van7huhi all,my game complains that the GPU is bad,could I change this to help me?09:26
BaKeRPEM robbie is corected about disc drive09:26
PEMdr_Willis only thing working is rebooting ^^09:26
robbiethe1stYea, yank that drive and put in a known-good CD drive09:27

BaKeRit doesnt read in my hp dvd writer/cd-writher combo but works in my dvd-rom drive09:27
robbiethe1stWhat's the specs of this PC?09:27
dr_Willispem i would make a bootalbe flash drive and use that instead of the cd09:27
bonjoyeePEM: ok...then try some advanced options in F6..09:28

jimcooncattxb -- atime means "access time" or last time a file was accessed. noatime means the filesystem doesn't keep track of when files were accessed.10:45

=== Guest27100 is now known as DarkDevil

ubottuUsing !sudo with single commands is preferable in most circumstances. However, if you really need a root shell, use « sudo -i » (other variants of this commands are redundant and/or potentially dangerous)12:02
ikoniasaby: ok, so if you investigate sudo you'll find there are flags that allow you to be root12:02
sabyok ikonia12:03
sabywill check that12:03

jribbanisterfiend: no, the .iso acts as your cd-rom.  In particular, if your iso is the win xp install cd, it will boot from it and take you to the windows installer when you boot the virtual machine12:48
banisterfiendjrib: oh ok12:48
banisterfiendjrib: so do i set up a 'hard drive' etc and all that first, or just set it to the iso ?12:48

phoenixsamprasbc81: is the way ubuntu works13:03

sionI thought Gnome 3.0 was only coming out next month?13:55
Dr_WillisGuest66271: install it to a flash drive for some speed boots. or set up grub2 to boot the iso file. :)13:55
sionI think that's when the release party is anyway13:55

Dr_Willission:  with all the names/changes/stuff.. i havent been paying attention. :)13:55
Guest66271Dr_Willis, ok. sion, it s for April, 11th. Right. But can  t wait. I ll still try to upgrade to 10.10 then teste the repos13:56
Dr_WillisI havent seen much in any of the new 'desktops' that will make my work-flow any better.13:56
t0bis`Hi, someone with some knowledge on installing patched .deb ?13:56
=== lol is now known as Guest22536
sinisterstufDr_Willis, from what i've been reading about gnome3.0 it aims to improve your workflow a lot13:56
Dr_Willissinisterstuf:  if your work flow is the same as they designed it for I guess. :)13:57
* Dr_Willis wonders if 'work flow' is a new buzz word..13:57
sipiorDr_Willis: an old one :-)13:57
sinisterstufDr_Willis, well they tested it on different people. some big differences are that there are no more minimise and maximise buttons, only close13:57
sinisterstufand no more gnome panels either13:58
Dr_Willissinisterstuf:  that change totally breaks my work flow.13:58
sinisterstufuses workspaces instead13:58
sinisterstufDr_Willis, do you ever minimise things?13:58
=== Guest75652 is now known as DarkDevil
Dr_Willisi fullscreen  everything normally.. so  the panels/workspaces dont really matter.13:58
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest97453
Dr_Willismy pannel works same as a workspace.13:59
sinisterstufDr_Willis, anyway, they removed the buttons, not the functionality, you'll still be able to fullscreen things13:59
LicuadoraDr_Willis, So, should I create a new directory (folder) in the USB stick so the Bios thinks is a root?13:59
sinisterstufjust you won't press maximise, you'll drag the windows to the top of the screen13:59
Dr_WillisIm reminded of the still nice featureset of good ole 'windowmaker'13:59
Dr_Willissinisterstuf:  i hate the drag to side maxamizes/whatever stuff.. always doing it by accident13:59
karlo94I was the windows user and on windows it is not normal if I have such many processes like on ubuntu, is it normal for linux?13:59
sinisterstufDr_Willis, i think i'm to new to know windowmaker14:00
Dr_WillisMany of these old window maangers still ahve some VERY nice features I miss.14:00
sinisterstufkarlo94, i have 169 processes, 1 of which is running (according to conky) what about you?14:00
Dr_WillisVertical 'dock/launcher' = the windowmaker warf. Now redone in unity. :)14:00
Guest66271another one: any kernel > 2.6.31 is not able to boot: screen gets black and nothing happens...14:01
sinisterstufDr_Willis, I achieved a 'similar' effect with docky in panel-mode aligned to the left14:01
t0bis`Someone with some knowledge on installing patched .deb ? ( make && makefile )14:01
karlo94sinisterstuf, how I can view it without conky?14:01
Guest66271so in my updates, it s a bit hard cause i can t use newer kernels and i stick to my old kernel boot14:01
Guest66271Dr_Willis, i m upgrading :)   had to do it. wifi doesn t work anyway in any kernel now...14:02
sinisterstufkarlo94, how about the command: pstree14:02
sinisterstuft0bis`, what are you trying to do?14:02
Guest66271Dr_Willis, it s all about old inprocomm chipset from windows drivers (ndiswrapper)14:03
sinisterstufDr_Willis, I think I have used window maker, except it didn't look nearly as fancy as it does in the gallery on their website14:03
karlo94sinisterstuf, it doesn't print out how many processes are there :/14:03
Submarinehi there14:03
SubmarineDoes Ubuntu 10.10 use /dev/udev rules for USB devices?14:04
SubmarineOr some other scheme?14:04
Dr_Willissinisterstuf:  its not fancy at all. its clean and tidy.  it can even run on  low # of color screens nicely heh.14:04

karlo94sinisterstuf, 88 processes14:07
sinisterstufkarlo94, that's not so much is it? how many do you estimate you had running in windows?14:08
bc81phoenixsampras: sure thing.  i think it's quite a clever script.  too bad this behavior isn't already built in to ubuntu14:08
natrixnatrix89hi guys. I'm trying to copy 170 gb data to an external usb hdd. Now that i've reached 45 gb the copy speed has decreased by two thirds. so it's now three times slower. Why is that so?14:08
sinisterstufkarlo94, btw I can really recommend you install conky, it's very cool14:09
karlo94sinisterstuf, something like 3514:09
karlo94sinisterstuf, I know but my computer is to slow, I tryed it, but it doesn't work :/14:09
sinisterstufkarlo94, I suppose linux just splits things into smaller tasks14:09
sinisterstufkarlo94, do you have enough swap space?14:09
t0bis`sinisterstuf I want to install a patched wine14:09
d_e_r_pwine sucks.14:10
dejan_I just installed ubuntu do I have build in ansi c compiler?14:10
sinisterstuft0bis`, and you have the deb? can you not just: gdebi packagename.deb14:10
t0bis`it's not a deb14:10
karlo94sinisterstuf, how do I can look swap space? xD14:10
d_e_r_pdejan_: sudo apt-get install build-essential14:10
dejan_gcc is build in?14:11
t0bis`i have followed this tutorial : http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=4438288&postcount=314:11
sinisterstufdejan_, the GNU C Compiler comes bundled with Ubuntu14:11
d_e_r_pdejan_: do the command o14:11
dejan_gcc is included in ubuntu?14:11
natrixnatrix89So no one can tell me why copy speed decreases while copying large files?14:11
d_e_r_padd sudo apt-get install build-essential too14:11
sinisterstufkarlo94, there should be a partition on your harddrive used for swap space, the size of the partition is how much swap space you have14:12
sinisterstuft0bis`, in that tutorial the first block of code is to create a deb file and the second part is to uninstall wine, after that you just double-click the deb file you made in step 114:13
Dr_Willisgcc is not installed by default. but its in the repos..14:13
karlo94sinisterstuf, hmm, I do not know :/ ..I have just one partition14:13
Dr_Williskarlo94:  try the 'free' command.14:14
Alphanautanyone know where vino saves config info?14:14
sinisterstufDr_Willis, thanks, didn't know that command14:14
t0bis`sinisterstuf the point is i don't find a .deb in the new folder, only the usual files with wine make and makefile14:14
karlo94Dr_Willis, total swap:169062014:14
[segfault]Alphanaut: .vino if I remember correctly14:15
Dr_Williskarlo94:  there ya go..14:15
Dr_Williskarlo94:  free -m = shows it in mb.14:15
jeniawhat log do I need to look into to see errors if some program crashed, so I can see why it crashed?14:15
sinisterstuft0bis`, you should have received some kind of error during the 'make' or at some other point, but most likely there14:16
karlat0bis`, from what I understand you've built a custom/patched wine and you want to install it via the .deb mechanism??14:16
karlo94Dr_Willis, 1650 mb ..thats good? :D and tnx14:16
t0bis`yes karla14:16

sinisterstufasdofindia, you could probably install things to emacs or vim to make them do that for you, but I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to achieve14:19
asdofindiai just don't want to run firefox for every dictionary query14:19
sinisterstufkarlo94, weird, but I would have guessed you're Croatian14:19
karlakarlo94, what you want to do is install wine using DESTDIR= and then create a control file and build a .deb using dpkg-deb14:19

coz_Somelauw,  compiz is most reliant on the video card14:27
coz_Somelauw, of course a higher en CPU and memory cant hurt14:27
sinisterstuftrick, I think you can connect it to your ubuntu computer, and get internet from tehre14:27

coz_Morten_,  this way regardless of printed size both images and text should be near flawless14:29
Morten_coz_, I don't know the DPI, I get the images from the program, root.. Is there a way to check it?14:29

ubottuWho828: To reset the gnome panel to defaults, type this in a !terminal: « gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel && killall gnome-panel »14:59
codemagicianlogging in remotely and running top shows 100% Xorg process14:59
coz_codemagician,  nvidia graphics?14:59
SomelauwAnd sometimes, my screen turn to some color before it completetely freezes14:59
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest77446
ryugunsI thought it would make more sense14:59
SomelauwIt is very annoying14:59
codemagiciancoz_,  yes its an ASUS EN210 with GeForce 210 chipset14:59
SomelauwAnd when you restart and check the logs, they are all empty.15:00
coz_codemagician,   could be the nvidia driver causing this... you may want to try a different driver in the additional hardware  dialog15:00
codemagiciancoz_, I have already updated to latest drivers15:00
SomelauwOnly google chrome seems to understand that something crashes since it offers to restore the websites you visited last time.15:00
coz_codemagician,  oooo ok15:00
codemagiciancoz_,  i used the PPA repo15:00
codemagiciancoz_, took it from 260.19.06 to 270.2915:00
SomelauwAlso for some reason when I rebooted ubuntu, it switched its theme to clearlooks for some reason.15:01
coz_codemagician,  ok ...often ,,,in the past  nvidia was the cuprit with this...  you might want to install  htop  and see exactly what is eating things up15:01
codemagiciancoz_, shall I leave it running on my remote machine15:02
coz_codemagician,  I suppose so  ,,, you mean while running htop?15:02
SomelauwMaybe it is because I visited google images.15:02
SomelauwI will visit google images right now and see if it will crash.15:02
codemagiciancoz_, i just installed it and I'm logged in from a laptop using SSH.  I will leave htop running and next time it goes screwy, what shall I look for?15:03
coz_Somelauw,   google images is also extremely poor  and a resource hog15:03
coz_codemagician,   cool  at least you should get an idea of what is hogging things up15:03
codemagiciancoz_, last time I used top and xorg was 100%15:03
codemagiciancoz_, it goes to 100% and even the  mouse pointer freezes15:04
coz_codemagician,   ooo   the first entry is  the one to look at ...the move down the list according the the least amount used15:04
codemagiciancoz_, im not even sure how to send xorg a signal to restart15:04
coz_codemagician, log off an don15:04
coz_and on15:04
codemagiciancoz_, but how to I logoff if my desktop is frozen. is there a command line method?15:05
SomelauwIs google images really able to make pc's crash?15:05
coz_codemagician,   ctrl+alt+F1   log in     sudo  restart gdm or   sudo restart kdm depending what you use15:05
SomelauwWhen my computer freezes, I can't even switch to a tty.15:06
SomelauwThen it is really frozen15:06
coz_Somelauw,  and ctrl+alt+F1  doesnt work?15:06
codemagiciancoz_, using gnome but even ctrl-alt-F1 doesn't work when this occurs15:06
jukSomelauw: that's why God created reset button15:06
coz_codemagician,  mmm15:06
codemagiciancoz_, thats why I have to stay logged in remotely15:06
coz_codemagician,  ah mm  ok I am puzzled at this point15:06
NotTooDumb3what are .sys and .cmd files?15:07
SomelauwYes, but I would rather fix the cause of my crash instead of pressing the restart button about 5 times an hour15:07
codemagiciancoz_, should i change the appearence settings15:07
codemagiciancoz_, Visual effects, none, standard or enhanced15:08
Alphanautso anyone want to take a stab at this one.  on bootup the screen shows the background i selected, then a few seconds later the background goes black and i cant get it to show again.15:08
coz_codemagician,   well if testing for other things  yes  disable compiz  and choose  "None"  or  alt+F2   metacity --replace or in terminal   metacity --replace & disown15:08
ryuguns well bye15:08
codemagiciancoz_, xorg is at 90% now15:09
Roasted_Does anybody know how I can set up an auto-link on an Ubuntu desktop to a Windows file server on the domain? I have Ubuntu on the Windows domain but I'm trying to figure out how domain users can get a link to their server folder when they log in to an Ubuntu system.15:09
TingTongTuxproblem:wvdial gives error code 16 & 17 at odd times :  why and how to avoid it??15:09
codemagiciancoz_, 95% and rising15:09

=== maelstrom is now known as Guest71660

coz_BluesKaj,   ah :)  dudette ?15:14
coz_codemagician,  no once you begin to deal with ppa's  and the like  it is no longer a default supported system ..so finding solutions is going to be much harder espeically in this channel15:14
