Lone-rangerI had a couple of Qs regarding Ubuntu, am thinking of installing it01:13
ZiberWhat are common causes and commons solutions to a server forgetting how to display PHP with apache?01:13
Lone-rangerlol, my questiion is much more noobish then these hitec ones01:13
Lone-rangerI am a very basic user01:13
sartani've got a number of USB nics that i want to come up when i plug them in for later virtualization usage, but they always join my system in the down state.  what's the best way to make this happen? /etc/network/interfaces -> auto usb-NIC1; iface usb-NIC1 inet manual.  (i rename them with udev.d out of scope of question).  ultimately i want them to be in the state they would be with 'ifconfig usb-NIC1 up'01:14
ActionParsnipZiber: common cause is services not running01:14
=== ExplodingPiglets is now known as Lap_dragon
ZiberActionParsnip: hm?01:14
KGBWolfneed help restoring partimage image01:14
sartanit becomes tiresome to continually find parts of my network dying because usb nics unplug and plug back in =(01:14
Ziberphp doesnt 'run' and apache, which does, is.01:14
Lone-rangerbasically, does Ubuntu have the same registry issues that Windows has, that the registry keeps growing and eventually slows down the system?01:14
meowskisougata_, what do you mean?01:14
phoenixsamprasLone-ranger: linux doesnt have a registry, its more advanced01:15
ActionParsnipZiber: try asking a proper question with some details rather than ambigiousity. You may get a better reply then01:15
jzero88If you come to an error while compiling source, when you issue "make" again, does it start off where it stopped/01:15
* sougata_ surrenders 01:15
Lone-rangerso phoenix, if I install a software, and then delete it, my system is good as new?01:15
ZiberActionParsnip: My question was specific. I performed a release upgrade from ubuntu server 9.04 to 10.04.2 lts, and now apache doesnt seem to be aware of PHP. :/01:15
bilal_hi guyz, i have a problem, i have ubuntu 10.10 when i run my computer, it directly boots ubuntu and donot show me bootloader and other options01:16
Lone-rangeror do I need to do more of a cleanup to get rid of any residue?01:16
gueriLLaPunKlol whoa... iptraf is hardcore01:16
Lone-rangerHi bilal01:16
bilal_<Lone-ranger> hi01:16
Lone-rangerBilal, where you at, if I may ask? Your name sounds very local to me01:16
Skaperenanyone here running 10.04 and could install a package to test it?01:17
ActionParsnipZiber: 01:13 < Ziber> What are common causes and commons solutions to a server forgetting how to display PHP with apache?01:17
phoenixsamprasLone-ranger: yeah, the 'packages' are removed properly01:17
ActionParsnipZiber: thats ALL you said..01:17
bilal_<Lone-ranger> yes, may b01:17
Lone-rangermay I priv msg you Bilal?01:17
ZiberActionParsnip: I've since clarified. Can you assist please?01:17
bilal_<Lone-ranger> yes01:17
jribZiber: how did you upgrade exactly?01:17
stojaati drivers " fgrlx " , still crashing with ubuntu 11.04 ?01:18
phoenixsamprasoh now help me plz01:18
phoenixsamprashow to intall ubuntu on a Xen citrix server? it doesnt boot01:18
ActionParsnipZiber: can you accept that "Ziber> ActionParsnip: My question was specific." is nonesense then?01:18
jribZiber: so two-step upgrade?  Did php get handled properly on 9.10?  What exactly happens when you visit a php page now?01:18
ActionParsnipphoenixsampras: did you MD5 test the ISO you installed with?01:19
Random832jrib: visit a php page? you know php isn't a client-side language right/01:19
dejan_how to downlod only files in folder example.com01:19
jribRandom832: yes, I know this01:19
dejan_in root folder01:19
dejan_not deeper01:19
phoenixsamprasActionParsnip: yeh, its md5 verified... the problem is with the boot string... what should i use?01:19
ActionParsnipZiber: if you ask really obscue questions how can anyone possibly help you?01:19
ZiberActionParsnip: I thought it was enough information to begin with.01:19
Ziberjrib: Its a webserver - ie: I'm not browsing pages on it, I'm hosting pages on it. When I go to a page that only HTML, it displays fine, but any page with HTML + PHP only shows the HTML01:20
jribZiber: I asked 3 questions01:20
needhelp1im having issues with easytag,  I am having issues with the error "unable to rename file, file already exists". I have hundreds of files that end up being the same file names so .. i cant get past this. I wish easytag had an option to add file numbers to duplicates 2 . 3. 4. ..01:20
sougata_dejan_, wget01:21
needhelp1any ideas01:21
Ziberjrib: Sorry. Yes, I honestly didnt try it on 9.10... And the third question isnt applicable.01:21
dejan_sougata_: i know but how01:21
sougata_python code, urllib201:21
dejan_i want only files in root folder not in other folders01:21
ActionParsnipZiber: there are possibly hundreds of things it can be. If you provide even basic information you narrow the possibilities down drastically, like the detail you just give is hugely helpful and will help others rather than some vague nothingness. I'd bear it in mind in future question01:21
dejan_can I list directories ?01:21
ZiberActionParsnip: Alright. Based on my specifying it, what are some of your ideas for narrowing it down further?01:22
muellidejan_: yes01:22
dejan_muelli:  how01:22
jribZiber: by "any page with HTML + PHP only shows the HTML" do you mean that you actually see php code as html when you visit the page?01:22
=== Guest5417 is now known as DarkDevil
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest70079
Ziberjrib: No, it just doesnt display what it is supposed to.01:23
KGBWolfim trying to restore an image to /dev/sdb its telling me that /de/sdb is mounted and i need to unmount but when i try unmount /dev/sdb nothing happends01:23
jribZiber: so does the php just ignored?01:23
ActionParsnipZiber: if you make a really simple test page, does it work?01:23
Ziberjrib: Seemingly, yes.01:23
ActionParsnipZiber: html + php01:23
ZiberActionParsnip: It does not, for html + php.01:23
dejan_how to list directories of a website?01:24
KGBWolfthen it says partion is too small to be restored01:24
ZiberKGBWolf: umount. not unmount01:24
needhelp1im having issues with easytag,  I am having issues with the error "unable to rename file, file already exists". I have hundreds of files that end up being the same file names so .. i cant get past this. I wish easytag had an option to add file numbers to duplicates 2 . 3. 4. ..  can anyone help with this. any ideas?01:24
ActionParsnipZiber: have you asked in #php too?01:25
bilal_hi guyz can anybody help me?01:25
muellidejan_: There is no way to deterministically list "directories" of a website. What does that mean anyway....01:25
ActionParsnipbilal_: ask and see01:25
KGBWolfi tried unmount01:25
KGBWolfit does not recognize that command01:25
ZiberActionParsnip: No, based on the assumption (and past experience) that channel is geared towards coding, is it not?01:25
ZiberKGBWolf: umount01:25
ZiberKGBWolf: not unmount01:26
jribZiber: is libapache2-mod-php5 installed? What php* files are in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/?  Are they broken links?  Have you restarted apache?01:26
bilal_i have ubuntu 10.10 installed, when i stars my computer it donot show me the grub boot loader and other options01:26
ActionParsnipZiber: its worth an ask01:26
ActionParsnipbilal_: if you hold shift at boot does it show?01:26
bilal_it directly boots ubuntu01:26
sougata_dejan_, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3173372/download-files-from-a-list-if-not-already-downloaded01:26
KGBWolfit says /livemount/boot device is busy01:26
Ziberjrib: Yes. php5.load, php5.conf. Not broken. Restarted apache a few times.01:26
bilal_well, i didnot try it01:26
sougata_dejan_, Its something similar , I guess you can figure out01:27
dejan_sougata_:  thanks01:27
WXZdoes anyone know how to write a collapseable list in zim?01:28
bilal_<ActionParsnip> one thing more01:28
jribZiber: similar to what ActionParsnip suggests, can you create a test.php with the contents " <?php phpinfo(); ?>" and see what happens?01:28
Ziberjrib: Alright. Sec.01:28
bilal_<ActionParsnip> when power failed or ubuntu shutsdown without confirmation, it starts disk checking after checking it reboots my computer again, why it is so01:29
dejan_i am trying to list webfolders and content of a website that allow this01:29
Ziberjrib: It prompts me to download any .php file.01:29
dejan_how i do this?01:29
ActionParsnipbilal_: sounds like the power fail may have damaged your data. You can boot to a livecd and fsck from there01:29
Ziberjrib: Rather than displaying it.01:29
oscar__hi all I have a problem with latexila: i have some .tex files i'd like to compile with it but when i open it, latexila shows a blank file... can anyone help?01:30
jribZiber: so earlier when you described the behavior, you were not using a .php file?  What was different?01:30
Ziberjrib: I embedded PHP in a .html01:30
jribZiber: but apache won't parse that by default01:30
bilal_<ActionParsnip> no it checks the hard disk automatically like windows but after checking why it reboots again?01:30
ZiberIt has in the past, when I ran 9.04...01:30
jack_^Anybody have any recommendations for a video editing software?01:30
ActionParsnipZiber: maybe: http://forums.devshed.com/php-development-5/downloads-rather-than-opens-php-w-apache-213640.html01:31

slaxnoobhey isn't there a guest addon for vb where you can manualy change the size of the window running?01:34
ActionParsnipbilal_: not sure, try a livecd boot and fsck there with some extra options01:34
ZiberActionParsnip: I dont see any other "addtype" lines in my apache config file, but I do in mods-enabled/mime.conf...01:34
slaxnoobhey isn't there a guest addon for vb where you can manualy change the size of the window running?01:35

jribdejan_: yes, see -A option in « man wget »01:36
bittyx-desktopis there a default unix alias for "mkdir NAME && cd NAME"? i seem to do that often, and if there was a built-in command, it'd be helpful. (if not, i'll probably make one myself)01:36
ZiberActionParsnip: I've added those lines to apache2.conf, restarted. Same thing.01:36
ActionParsnipZiber: i'd ask in #php they may have the key :)01:37
red2kicbittyx-desktop: Make an alias. :)01:37
ZiberActionParsnip: alright. thanks for your help.01:37
nejodeUNew, try renaming the ~/.xchat2 directory, start xchat and reconfigure01:37
jribZiber: you don't need those lines. .php should be parsed without any configuration changes whatsoever01:37
bittyx-desktopUNew: also, try #xchat for more specific help01:38
jribbittyx-desktop: nope, write your own :)01:38

Ziberjrib: I'd've thought so. But, its not.01:41
jribZiber: right, in any case I still need to understand the configuration changes you made.  Can you pastebin the relevant virtual host file and apache2.conf?01:42
Ziberjrib: Sure, sec.01:42

landingonwater_using ndiswrapper on a pavilion tx1000. visat has wifi, but Ubunto claims the hardware is not present ???01:46
landingonwater_vista has wifi01:47
trollboyActionParsnip, dell doesn't have any 17" ubuntu boxes, they've got a couple of 15"'s with hardware I'd give to a teenage girl to sort her mp3's and email boys..01:47
blackrockHello! I've installed 10.04 on my new ThinkPad T410. But I think there are a few hardware incompatibilties.01:47
blackrockI have a few "unclaimed" hardwares. Where do I find their drivers?01:48
resnoblackrock: have you enabled restricted drivers?01:48
jribZiber: is userdir module enabled?01:48
blackrockresno: no, how to do that?01:48
sougata_landingonwater_, sudo lshw -C network01:48
resnoblackrock: system -> administration -> additonal drivers01:49
berto-how do i configure a hard drive to come up as a particular device; e.g. i want the first drive i ever installed to remain at /dev/sda, not jump to /dev/sdd after i install more drives.01:49
ActionParsniptrollboy: http://www.system76.com/01:49
ActionParsniptrollboy: why not just see which laptops accept linux installs well and buy that, rather than one preinstalled01:49
bastidrazorberto-: i assume you're having issues with fstab not seeing it correctly.. use UUID's instead. it will negate which /device it is seen as.01:50
blackrockresno: you mean "Hardware Drivers"? It has no driver info there01:50
landingonwater_PCI (sysfs)01:50
landingonwater_and then it dissappears.01:51
resnoblackrock: what version?01:51
tensorpuddingcan you run debian unstable in an ubuntu chroot?01:51
resnotensorpudding: unlikely01:51
landingonwater_bluetooth turns on though when i hit the wifi switch. so the hardware is there alright :S01:51
tensorpuddinginstalling a vm seems like a terrible terrible waste of space01:51
landingonwater_or maybe thats just the bluetooth hardware ?01:51
berto-bastidrazor: no, i'm just pedantic and it's annoying the hell out of me that my root drive is /dev/sdd.01:52
blackrockresno: it's lucid01:52
sougata_landingonwater_, are you using hp pavillion ?01:52
resnoblackrock: whats not working for you?01:53
br0seidonHey, can someone explain what exactly squid is and what it does? It's apparently a proxy of some sort01:53
landingonwater_sougata_:  yes.. hp pavilion tx1000. bcmwl5 driver. but ndiswrapper says: hardware not present01:53
Ziberjrib: any ideas?01:53
sougata_landingonwater_, I too had one, the hardware was damaged due to over heat01:53
br0seidonCan anybody help with my squid question?01:53
landingonwater_sougata_: im running ubuntu 10.1001:53
landingonwater_sougata_: but i have dualboot, and vista has wifi. so... can it be damaged then ?01:54
sougata_landingonwater_, cool01:54
nejodelandingonwater_, do you have a wired conection?01:55
landingonwater_sougata_: i know.. the tx1000 is running way too hot. the GPU is in the red01:55
landingonwater_sougata_: yes.. i have a wired connection01:55
sougata_landingonwater_, That is one bad laptop01:55
FishraperHow do I install and run a .exe windows file? With Wine?01:55
landingonwater_and the ndiswrapper gui as well. installed the driver manually though.01:55
br0seidonWith wine fishraper01:56
br0seidonWine never works for me tho01:56
landingonwater_sougata_: haha.. yes.. i know.. horrible laptop. but only one I've got :(01:56
FishraperIs there a better solution than Wine?01:56
sougata_Yes, and lets try to get the wifi working01:56
br0seidonNo, wine is the best linux software for running window's executable files01:56
ibnuif wine has already been installed, just double click to setup.exe of windows01:56
jribZiber: yes, I asked earlier if userdir module is enabled01:56
nejodelandingonwater_, install the bcmwl-kernel-source package01:57
landingonwater_sougata_: okay01:57
ActionParsnipFishraper: there is cedega and crossover office01:57
FishraperI'm using the netbook version of ubuntu, doesn't seem to be pre-installed. I'll get it now. Thanks br0seidon ^^01:57
ActionParsnipFishraper: none are better, each have appdbs and some aps may work in one but not another01:58
ActionParsnipFishraper: cedega and crossover are not free01:58
sougata_landingonwater_, are both the modules installed , ndiswrapper bcm43xx01:58
landingonwater_nejode: E: Unable to locate package package01:58
landingonwater_sougata_: ahh.. i will check for bcm 43xx. in the package manager ?01:59
FishraperIs there a Serial to USB driver for this? I mean USB going into this ubuntu netbook, and serial going to a different device02:00
nejodelandingonwater_, you should have all standard repositories enabled and update them02:00
nejodelandingonwater_, source code included02:01
landingonwater_sougata_: what about b43 and b43-fwcutter ? should i uninstall those ?02:01
sougata_landingonwater_, I am not sure02:02

FishraperActionParsnip: kay, thx02:14
ActionParsnipFishraper: :D02:14
bl4ckcombarrrghhh, maybe you can use clonezilla to move your current disk content to a separate medium, reinstall ubuntu, copy the kernel files to another disk, put your image back and then inject the kernel files you copied02:14
napalmxok, i wasn't sure what the difference was, i erred on the side of the free version02:14
napalmxbut it was failing to extract for me, every tiem02:14
ActionParsnipnapalmx: does the archive have a password?02:14

[FTW]Landimalok noob question, I just installed Chrome, but I can't find it, where do installed programs go?02:25
ActionParsnipLogan_: true but any app in the repos is also supported here02:25
ActionParsnip[FTW]Landimal: chrome the game, or the web browser?02:26
aktif i wanted to store my music and other files what sjould i do.. in windows i have separate partitions for that.. what to do in linux02:26
jack_^[FTW]Landimal, try # sudo updatedb # locate chrome02:26

jack_^akt, why cant you do that in linux?02:26
aromanhello, is anyone here using compiz 0.9 with the desktop switcher plugin, and noticing that the dock/panels aren't being excluded?02:26
ActionParsnip[FTW]Landimal: if you press alt+f2 and run: chromium-browser     does it run?02:26
Logan_!compiz | aroman02:27
ubottuaroman: Compiz (compositing window manager), for a howto see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager and more help #compiz02:27
ActionParsnipakt: you can have seperate partitions in ubuntu and they can be mounted to folder so will be seamless. The default install just has one big partition for everything02:27
aktshould i create a separate partitions for it.. what should i do???02:27
aromanLogan_: what was the point of that?02:27
ActionParsnipakt: if you wish, sure02:27
Logan_aroman: support is in #compiz02:27

aromanyeah this is an ubuntu thing, not a compiz thing really02:28
Logan_ActionParsnip: I think it's ok to redirect people to another channel on Freenode, at least02:28
Logan_especially if an active one exists02:28
aromanit's ubuntu not playing nice with compiz. though interestingly, I already asked in #compiz and they told me to come here02:28
ActionParsnipLogan_: sure so they can ask as well but the apps are supported here also02:28
ActionParsniparoman: how do you mean "aren't being excluded"?02:29
aromanActionParsnip: you know how in compiz02:29
aromanwhen you switch desktops (not the 3D cube), gnome-panel is excluded from the parts of the screen that are animated?02:29
ActionParsnip[FTW]Landimal: how did you install the browser?02:29
jack_^aroman, are you using expo?02:29
jack_^aroman, the 'expo' effect?02:29
aromanthat is, gnome-panel floats above the other screen elements, rather than being moved like a normal window02:29
aromanjack_^: yes02:30
jack_^aroman, thats strange. so the panels are not animated along with the rest of the screen?02:30
[FTW]LandimalI installed the browser by downloading a .deb through firefox. It ran yesterday, now I'm not finding it02:30
aromanjack_^: they _are_ animated; that02:30
jack_^[FTW]Landimal, the deb is installed in /opt i believe02:30
aroman's the problem :)02:30
jack_^aroman, you want the gnome panel to stay still?02:30
aromanas it should normally02:30
jack_^mine doens't behave that way with expo02:31

jack_^etsw, gcc is in the repo02:37
J_Cit should comy by default. Use Synaptic to search and download02:37
jack_^Fishraper, .exe file are usually for windows. you'll need an emulator such as wine02:37
etswthere is GGcov in ubuntu software center ?02:38
Fishraperjack_^: I do have wine, it's telling me the .exe I'm trying to run is not marked as an executable02:38
ZacLnxNewbjack_^: installing it.. >.>02:38
ZacLnxNewbjack_^:  What do I do after it's installed?02:38
jack_^Fishraper, wine says that? try:   wine /path/to/file.exe02:38
jzero88Question: When you add a directory to $PATH, how can you run a program without using " ./ " first infront of it??02:38
jack_^ZacLnxNewb, open it02:38
J_Cman chmod, chmod is the program to se to mark something as executable02:38
jack_^jzero88, if the path is set correctly, it should be automagic.02:38
jack_^jzero88, if its not a standard path, you can setup an alias also02:39
jzero88jack_^, even so, even when I am in the folder, I still have to use ./02:39
jack_^jzero88, perhaps your path is not setup correctly. type:   which <command>02:39
J_Cjzero88: then it's not in your path02:39
jack_^if it doesn't give you the path its not working heh02:39
jzero88jack_^, J_C  yeah not giving the path02:40
jzero88how do I fix this02:40
jzero88if you know02:40
jack_^jzero88, type this02:40
J_Cyou could set the path, log out and log back in, or use the "source" command02:40
leagrisjzero88, the command path does not (never) includes ./ because of security concerns. That's it, don't try to mess modify this.02:41
jack_^jzero88, pwd; echo $PATH; ll <command>;02:41
J_Cas in "source your_bash_profile" file02:41
Fishraperjack_^: That command made it work through terminal. How come it wouldn't work if I simply clicked on the file? Is it a user permission thing?02:42
jzero88jack_^, J_C leagris  this was the command I did.  " export PATH=$PATH:/android/android-sdk-linux_x86/tools02:42
jack_^Fishraper, your exe files are probably set to open with gedit or something02:42
jack_^jzero88, type the command i just mentioned and gimmie the output02:42
jzero88am I missing the / at end of tools02:42
Fishraperjack_^: Is there a way to check/change that?02:42
landingonwateri think i must try tomorrow with a usb ubuntu, to make sure i didnt mess up the system. to make certain if its a hardware problem that is the reaon i dont have any wifi.02:43
jack_^Fishraper, im not sure. i think there is a GUI for it somewhere02:43
ActionParsnipjack_^: is the android folder in $HOME02:43
sougata_landingonwater, your wifi did not work ?02:43
ActionParsnipFishraper: they need marking executable with:  chmod +x filename.exe02:43
J_Cjzero88: that should work, until you log out. Then you would have to re-run that command in a new terminal. Why not just set the path in your .bash_profile file02:43
jack_^ActionParsnip, fishraper is trying to open an .exe with wine.02:44

jzero88jack_^, holy, your right02:45
jzero88let me check something02:45
FishraperActionParsnip: jack_^ made the suggestion to type wine /path/filename.exe through the termal, and it worked fine. My question now I guess would be how come it didn't work by just simply click on the file in the folder through the GUI?02:45
landingonwatersougata_: it still wont work. messed around with It. It refuses to see the hardware.02:45
* jzero88 feels bashful02:45
ActionParsnipFishraper: the file wasn't executable, but the wine binary is02:45
ActionParsnipFishraper: if you make the windows binary executable it will work as expected02:46

jack_^Fishraper, try right click the file and clicking 'open with other application'. choose wine and select 'remember this'02:46
J_Cchmod +x filename.exe02:46

x404xlol if only they would supply me some of it hehe, i remember wasting atleast a day before setting up something and then realizing the instructions where for another version of linux and nothing made sence lol03:03
landingonwaterI am watching my language ! Im just pointing out that even though Darktable is a nice project, Its got a long way to go. Alot of people edit RAW files now, so a complete switch to Ubuntu is very difficult as long as the interface designs are so horrible on the graphic tools for Ubuntu.03:03

But programmers in general have no clue how to make user interfaces. so in Darktable there are hopeless icons instead of textnavigation.

Logan_!debian | hayden03:16
AbhijitBen65, use bleachbit autoremove autoclean03:16
ubottuhayden: Ubuntu and Debian are closely related. Ubuntu builds on the foundations of Debian architecture and infrastructure, with a different community and release process. See https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/installation-guide/i386/what-is-debian.html - Remember, !repositories meant for Debian should NOT be used on Ubuntu!03:16

gumbewhere is the file03:16
x404xclearly its not using the file listed in the guide03:16
Ben65Abhijit: whats that? do i need to get bleachbit03:16
AbhijitBen65, bleach bit is cleaning software. use with care. autoremove and autoclean removes the downloaded packages which are no longer needed03:17
AbhijitBen65, you will find bleachbit in software center03:18

ubottuTanthrix: You should avoid noisy away messages and -nicks in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»03:23

jack_^abstrakt, mailx-12.5-1.fc14.x86_6403:25
jack_^abstrakt, well... use the ubuntu version of course.   sudo apt-get install mailx03:25
x404xit unrecognizes the service, hm that doesnt sound promising, maybe try reinstall iptables ?03:25
TanthrixBen65: A litle bit, but I was hoping there was a simpler way. In fact, I would have thought a different subnet would do it, like a bunch of other people online.03:25
abstraktjack_^, why is it called mailx ? and not mail?03:25
jack_^x404x, it maybe a ubuntu thing. im unsure.03:25
jack_^abstrakt, because its EXTREME03:26
TanthrixBen65: Is a VLAN the only way to do it, as far as you know?03:26
abstrakter, ok03:26
x404xlol yeah im getting bored with it, what good is an os that denies the admin to change any settings03:26

pdf_dudeis it possible to add a confirmation to "rm" command?03:58
edbianpdf_dude, Yes.  But it is probably not simple.  You could write a simple front-end for it.  That's probably the simplest way.03:58
sougata_ssbpls, did you find the object files ?03:58
Nisstyrepdf_dude, how are your C skills?03:58
pdf_dudeno im unskilled03:59
drobolepdf_dude: i guess you could do it by making a alias in ./bashrc and call the frontend with it03:59
rwwpdf_dude: look at 'man rm'. Consider the -i or -I options to it.03:59
edbianNisstyre, pdf_dude You could probably write a simple bash script that asks confirmation and only runs the rm command if you say 'yes'  Then name that script 'rm' (and rename rm)  Bit of a hack.03:59
rwwcombine with an alias in bash.03:59

Wingatefor those who have sleep this night04:27
Scunizimechanist: with 4 primary partitions you've reached the max.. to get more you need to delete one (maybe ext4 if it's large enough) and recreate it as an extended partiiton.. then you can add multiple partitions below that for the install.. ubuntu takes a minimum of 2 partitons to install04:27

MeanEYEdrtt: windows doesn't support ext partitions04:43
drttI want to totally format this hd04:43
MeanEYEdrtt: natively :)04:43
ActionParsnipMasterU: I am but its offtopic here, ask about natty in #ubuntu+104:43
bullgardLoshki: Thank you very much for your help.04:43
mechanistScunizi: lol, the menu has only the primary enabled....04:43
Leifsubone, ruan Thanks, I found what I was looking for. :)04:43
MasterUthanks ActionParsnip04:44
ActionParsnipdrtt: windows is too native and cannot read or write ext4 or ext3. with software it can read ext204:44
MeanEYEdrtt: in Control Panel -> Administration -> Computer Management there's a drive manager or something like that... from there you can format that drive04:44
Scunizimechanist: you have to delete the ext4 partition. apply it and then recreate it as extended04:44
mechanistScunizi: maybe I can make 20 gigas primary and other 20 extended?04:44
Loshkibullgard: You're welcome. You always ask really interesting questions.04:44
Scunizimechanist: out of the ext4 partition?04:44
mechanistScunizi: I've already trid it04:44
ActionParsnipdrtt: if you want to format it then its a windows support issue and you will get help in ##windows04:44
mechanistScunizi:  yeah04:44
mechanistScunizi: but only primary is enabled04:45
skhow do I install the latest development releases for programs like wine and vlc? Is there a way to do this automatically through the Update Manager?04:45
Scunizimechanist: no.. because if it's 40 gigs and you try to split it into 20 primary and 20 extended then you're maxed with 4 primary partitions and it won't create an extended04:45
MeanEYEsk: one way is to compile the source, other is to get development ppa04:45
mechanistScunizi: let's see04:45
Scunizimechanist: delete the ext4 partition and make the whole thing extended04:46
mechanistScunizi: I've already tried to do it, that's what I'm trying to tell you04:46
abstrakthow do I check the postfix syslog on ubuntu?04:46
mechanistScunizi: but the Gparted's menu enables only primary04:46
Scunizimechanist: that's strange.. hang on04:46
MeanEYEabstrakt: all logs should be located in /var/log04:47
abstraktMeanEYE, postfix logs to "syslog" apparently04:47
roasted_I havent a 2nd PCI network card in my Ubuntu box, but ifconfig only shows LO and ETH0. Hmmmm?????????04:47
mechanistScunizi: trying to create two partitions04:47
abstraktMeanEYE, I was told to use grep -i `postconf -h syslog_facility` /etc/syslog.conf04:47
abstraktbut there is no /etc/syslog.conf04:47
skMeanEYE: thank you!04:48
pootietangsup peeps!04:48
ActionParsniproasted_: run: sudo lshw -C network   you wil see the chip, websearch for guides based on the nonfunctioning chip. It's not working as the default install doesn't have the driver for the chip. It's that simple.04:48
mechanistScunizi: funny as hell: both the partitions were created04:48
arlanderanyone: windows telnet server is no running, is there any way to connect via rpc, I just want to view one of the files on windows server, I have administrator account but no gnome/kde for remote desktop04:48
roasted_ActionParsnip, well I AM running Edubuntu as a DHCP server so I just wanted to check and see.04:48
Scunizimechanist: perhaps one of your other partitions is "extended"04:49
MeanEYEabstrakt: do you have /var/log/mail.log ?04:49
ActionParsniparlander: use rdesktop if remote logon is enabled04:49
sikilpaakehow do i associate a .sh file with the terminal?04:49
MeanEYEpootietang: :D nuthin04:49
ActionParsniproasted_: and see what?04:49
arlanderbut no gnoome/kde environment, its pure command line, will rdesktop work ?04:49
roasted_if it would work. I wasnt sure if edubuntu locks out additional cards by default or hwat04:49
roasted_ActionParsnip, ^04:49
mechanistScunizi: nope,  both here results primary... O_o04:49
Scunizimechanist: something is fishy here.04:50
mechanistScunizi: ok, both partitions, ext4 and swap, created. now I see if the installtion works04:50
mechanistScunizi: LOL, I think it too.04:50
ActionParsniproasted_: maybe not out of the box, but there may be drivers and you can certainly use ndiswrapper if necessary04:50
MeanEYEarlander: why not ssh in that case? am not sure if rdesktop will work04:50
Scuniziarlander: there is no desktop :)  .. ssh will work04:50
arlanderbut there is no ssh server running on windwos, I want to access windows command prompt from ubuntu04:51
mechanistScunizi: nothing, the installation program doesn't see my hard disk04:51
Scuniziarlander: and no gui on ubuntu?04:51
MeanEYEarlander: ooh, that... hm, then you'll need some desktop environment in order to use remote desktop application, or setup ssh on windows if you can04:52
mechanisti'm going mad04:52
roasted_ActionParsnip, I have another PCI LAN card here of a different brand. trying that quick.04:52

ActionParsniproasted_: its a software thing. You can do it in Cisco switches too04:53
MeanEYEceo: lol sorry, I thought you needed help :P04:53
arlanderMeanEYE: I cant access windows machine directly, ubuntu server is the only way, actually I am working remotely, and I have only access to ubuntu ssh04:53
ActionParsniproasted_: you'd have eth0.0 and eth0.104:53
ceoMeanEYE, can i h elp you04:54
ActionParsniproasted_: obviously it makes the port get used more so goes slower04:54
MeanEYEarlander: which services does windows machine has installed04:54

ubottutrick: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.05:36
jordan__pdf_dude,  i loked at one of ur replys from a while ago my bad05:36
paranoiakMikeChelen: not moving at all05:36
MikeChelentrick: better for what?05:36
pdf_dudejordan__: then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install clamav05:36
MeanEYEtrick: chrome is based on chromium, difference is, chrome has propriatary plugins and stuff05:36
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: could use minitube, don't need flash for that05:37
MikeChelenparanoiak: tested the webcam on other comps?05:37
ActionParsniptrick: chromium also has fewer tracking stuffs in05:37
MeanEYEActionParsnip: you know, I tried that... but somehow that thing always fail to play videos. :/05:37
pdf_dudewow radio tray program is great05:37
trickMikeChelen: ubottu seems like a bit of a dick, just regurgitating meaningless platitudes as if they were insightful or interesting05:37
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: dang05:37
MeanEYEActionParsnip: weird thing is, different machines, different versions, different os versions... and never managed to play it :D05:38
JdGordonwhat do i need to fiddle with to get both my eth devices to show up? only eth0 is being found?05:38
regeyaubottu almost seems like some sort of drone, or a robot05:38
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)05:38
paranoiakMikeChelen: yes even talked with it on a windows machine earlier today, so i know its not broken, and the webcam works on here too, just not the microphone05:38
JdGordondmesg clearly shows both though05:38
MikeChelentrick: the same type of questions get asked repeatedly, and there is no way to answer05:38
MeanEYEJdGordon: ifconfig -a, your device might not be activated05:38
jordan__pdf_dude, cool its unpacking some mess right now05:38
MikeChelenparanoiak: do other mics work ok?05:38
MeanEYEJdGordon: if it's listed there... then ifconfig eth1 up (for example)05:39
trickMikeChelen: sure, there's HEAPS of criteria upon which to make a judgement, namely in the same sense you judge internet explorer versus firefox versus chrome. Magazines do these kind of comparisons all the time, and tehy are far from meaningless05:39
jordan__pdf_dude, k its done05:39
pdf_dudejordan__: it's downloading the packages and then it extracts and install it05:39
paranoiakMikeChelen: i dont have other microphones.....05:39
pdf_dudejordan__: now open clamtk.deb05:39
pdf_dudein software center05:39
JdGordonMeanEYE: ok thanks... as soon as gnome starts responding again i'll try it05:39
trickMikeChelen: so dont feed me that 'everything is equal' and 'there's no way to judge' bs, it's nothing than cliche05:39
jordan__pdf_dude, clamtk.deb: command not found05:39
MeanEYEJdGordon: lol, np :D05:39
ActionParsnippdf_dude: theres a ppa for latest clamav defs and engine05:39
jordan__whats a ppa05:40
ubottuA Personal Package Archive (PPA) can provide alternate software not normally available in the offical Ubuntu repositories - Looking for a PPA? See https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas - WARNING: PPAs are unsupported third-party packages, and should be used at your own risk.05:40
JdGordonMeanEYE: if that does fix it, how do i get that to work on boot?05:40
MikeChelentrick: let us know what you are looking for and then we can make a better recommendation05:40
ActionParsnipjordan__: its a 3rd party repo, often they have later versions than the ubuntu repos05:41
trickMikeChelen: im like everyone else here, im just trying to organize domestic family life for myself, before i trip over an ant hill and fall down to the ground and to my grave05:41
MikeChelenparanoiak: you might want to check into pulseaudio or alsa troubleshooting depending what is installed on your system05:41
MeanEYEJdGordon: https://help.ubuntu.com/6.06/ubuntu/serverguide/C/network-configuration.html05:41
MikeChelentrick: haha!05:41
jordan__pdf_dude, gotcha, i entered just clamtk and it said it wasnt installed so i did the cmd to install it05:41
jordan__apt-get install clamtk05:42
MeanEYEJdGordon: you can edit /etc/network/interfaces file but you should just use network manager if you have gnome installed05:42
JdGordonMeanEYE: ah dammit... ifconfig -a was enough... i was trying to bring up the wrong device name :/05:42
ActionParsnipjordan__: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-clamav/ppa; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y upgrade   will give you the latest clamav with defs and engine05:42
MeanEYEJdGordon: glad you solved it :D05:42
* JdGordon feels silly05:42
MeanEYEJdGordon: no problemo :)... happy to help05:42
jordan__pdf_dude,  can i enter all of that on one line05:43
jordan__or sep05:43
MikeChelentrick: we can all discuss that in #ubuntu-offtopic :D05:43

pcyphersacarlson: i cannot access any page after copying over a site I backed up06:02

MeanEYEanyone has experience with MiniTube?06:02
pcyphersacarlson: i just rsynced the site to a remote drive and now cannot access any page06:03
MikeChelenpcypher: try to explain your question here and maybe some will know. also might try #ubuntu-server06:03
pcypherMikeChelen: Thank you.06:03
sacarlsonpcypher: ok maybe you need to look at who owns the file and change them and the permisions with chown and chmod  man those06:03
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: tiny bit06:03
Peddyparanoiak, are you used to working in the terminal?06:03
Fish__Peddy: and is there a way to get a custom server to work on empathy?06:03
smbhelpIf I have Samba 3.5.6 running on one machine and smbclient on another machine, shouldn't they be able to talk to each other and see the shares if the "security = SHARE" is set on the smb server?  When I open Places>Network>Workgroup I don't see anything (and the workgroup name is correct).  But from my Windows machines I can see the share and access it.06:03
pcyphersacarlson: the user name with ls -l is the same as it was before... maybe  a uid issue?06:03
paranoiakPeddy: just searched for new drivers, and updates, was nothing there06:03
sacarlsonpcypher: to see who own's them you can use ls -l06:03
MikeChelenpcypher: yeah what sacarlson says sounds right06:04
MeanEYEActionParsnip: it won't play selected video but, running it from console, I get Phonon error: "Cannot find demultiplexer plugin for MRL [file:///tmp/minitube-meaneye.mp4]" 206:04

ActionParsnipMeanEYE: minitube 1.4 is out but maverick repo only has 1.1 let me find a repo06:04
sacarlsonpcypher: well what is the username then,  and does that user exist on this new system?06:04
pcyphersacarlson: yes... the user does exist06:05
sacarlsonpcypher: if not you can create the missing user or change the user of all the files to one that does exist06:05
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/minitube; sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get -y upgrade06:05
MeanEYEActionParsnip: hah, works now :) needed to remove sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-xine06:05
Peddyparanoiak, unfortunately webcams are still quite difficult to get working (but it's improving!) on some machines.06:05
Peddyparanoiak, I've read up on it, and it seems that "the video and audio don't work at the same time because the video is opened before the audio and it takes all the USB bandwidth."06:06
sacarlsonpcypher: ok the user exists and what is the code for permisions on all or most of the files or the ones that can't be reached?06:06
paranoiakPeddy: but strange it works for u then and u have the same webcam06:06
sacarlsonpcypher: one other thing is if you put the files physicaly on a partition outside the apparrmor location that you have apache2 set at06:07
Peddyparanoiak, the mic works and video works, but not at the same time :/ it's the Lifecam thing, right06:07
pcyphersacarlson: this is the skinny... I set up lamp on my primary box... had cacti nagios, the whole 9. Then I tried learning backups and crons. Backed up the entire /var/www using rsync. DBAN'd the box, reimaged. then got 10.10 back up and running. then got virtualbox up, installed a 10.4 lts server set up lamp06:07
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: can you log a bug with 1.1 saying the 1.4 fixed it and it may get included :)06:07
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: in the default repos that is06:07
pcypherthen I rsynced the backups to /var/www on the vm06:07
MeanEYEActionParsnip: I did upgrade :)... didn't want to ask questions before I did that... I just needed to remove phonon xine package :D06:08
pcypherbefore copying over any files... lamp worked...06:08
paranoiakPeddy: yeah but my webcam is not using right now.. so shouldent audio work then? but i am getting no movement at the input adjustment?06:08
pcypherafter the copy,not at all06:08
Fish__can someone help me with the irc function of empathy?06:09
ActionParsnipMeanEYE: oic, ok log that so people know06:09
sacarlsonpcypher: so you put the right back to /var/www or did you just create a symbolic link to where you have the files?  if so is that in the apparmor location?06:09
Peddyparanoiak, I have no idea. We could try compiling the latest GSPCA from source code, if you're up to it06:10
MeanEYEActionParsnip: sudo apt-get remove phonon-backend-xine :)06:10
paranoiakPeddy: sure06:11
paranoiakPeddy: but i dont know what that is, GSPCA06:11
pcypherok... I think I might know whats going on here...06:11

Peddyparanoiak, it's the "driver" for your webcam. Please download this to your desktop: http://moinejf.free.fr/gspca-2.12.18.tar.gz06:11

MeanEYEmarekw2143: email, yes, but thunderbird doesn't have running services in ubuntu06:22
marekw2143may be a silly question, but is evolution "secure application"?06:23
MeanEYEmarekw2143: secure in what sense? it does support ssl and other encryption methods06:23
marekw2143MeanEYE: in sense that it's easy to steal emails from that application easier than from thunderbird or other very popular email client06:24
eosshow do i see whos tried connecting to my router?06:24
m00nshinebleep bleep06:24
eossis there some log that shows who try connecting to me>?06:24
MeanEYEmarekw2143: then every application is not secure :)... since everything can be "stolen" if someone has your computer. On the bright side Ubuntu 10.10 supports encyption of home directory so even if someone gets your computer your data is safe. :)06:25
marekw2143nono, protecting data on a hard drive is not a task of email client06:26

coz_maxagaz,   well imagemagic has a display command07:51
Slartmaxagaz: you could perhaps use a framebuffer.. I've never tried it myself but I think those exist07:51
coz_maxagaz,   example would be   display nameof.png07:52
Slartmaxagaz: I mean.. framebuffer exists.. and I'm pretty sure there are imageviewers for it..07:52

sugoruyohi folks, i have a quick question to ask you: when you do an 'apt-cache show <pkg>' you get some output with the package's metadata. i'd like to find some more detailed explanation of that information, does anyone know of any good 'official' doc from ubuntu or debian regarding that stuff?08:11
kothaguy_ubuntuoliver_, :i did that,no change,what happen when i type those commands?08:11
recognoscosugoruyo: about the package or the software?08:12

guest123456i'm trying to start ubuntu 10.10 on my PC... but it won't start08:13
elFidelguest123456: won't start means in detail?08:14
sugoruyorecognosco: what i want to know is what exactly those things mean, e.g. when a package says its priority is optional, or it suggests packages x and y, what exactly do those things mean on a technical level - how does the package manager react to that information??08:14
guest123456when I press "try ubuntu without installing" my pc will be restarted08:14
ActionParsnipsugoruyo: why does it need to be official?08:14
guest123456p4 3.0 ghz northwood, 2 gb ram, mobo: asus P4P800E-Deluxe08:14
elFidelguest123456: so you booted the 10.10 install/live cd intpo the live part and you would like to start install from there. what happens on the reboot?08:14

guest123456elFidel, I want try ubuntu with liveOS08:15
guest123456pc restarts08:15
_Neytiri_how can i fix that08:15
sugoruyoActionParsnip: i'd like it to be from the designers of the debian packaging system, but it doesn't *need* to be, i just want to know more about what metadata the system keeps about a package, i'm doing some work on explaining linux to some technical, non-linuxy people and package management is a big thing in our context08:16
guest123456like when you press "reset" button08:16
ActionParsnipsugoruyo: optional means you installed it or it was pulled down as a recommended package08:16
coz_guest123456,  when you get to the menus with   "Try ubuntu"   do the check cd to see if there are errors on the disk08:16

guest123456but no errors are in the cd because i installed it on my pc with virtualbox08:17
sugoruyoActionParsnip: yeah, i get that, but i doubt it's documented as such by the designers of dpkg08:18
sugoruyomaybe i should ask in debian08:18
oliver_kothaguy_ubuntu,   for example      export http_proxy=""08:18
WXZI need a text editor with collapseable text08:18

coz_guest123456,  if the md5sums were correct then something may have occured during the burn08:20
croessnerHi, I would like to understand, why I can not upgrade grub1->grub2. Is it because of using software RAID? http://pastebin.de/1590308:20
guest123456the problem is if i try to install it on my pc08:20
coz_guest123456,  ah  I see...08:20
sugoruyorecognosco: i think that would be overkill, when you 'apt-cache show pkg' you get a bunch of data on the pkg, probably maintained by the pkg maintainer not the s/w developers themselves ('less they package for .deb themselves ofc)08:21
ActionParsnipsugoruyo: think about what a Linux distro ACTUALLY is and what it is madd off08:21

coz_guest123456,   which version of ubuntu is this?08:22
guest123456my POST makes the memory test automatically08:22
ActionParsnipsugoruyo: many small projects combine to make the distro so the xorg team will work very closely with intel for their driver to work and it will ALL be documented08:23

pookyI'm guessing not, since everyone is recommending other (decent) things. Thanks09:00
Jordan_UVoita: Does your laptop support booting from USB.09:00
Voitayes jordan... I installed ubuntu via usb09:00
Voitabut now i need to have a bootable xubuntu stick09:01
kothaguy_ubuntuoliver_, :yes both the commands09:01
recognoscoVoita: try usb-creator09:01
kothaguy_ubuntuvoita: use freedos09:01
oliver_kothaguy_ubuntu and they gave no error? if so just try ur update command09:02
Voitathx guys I try freeds and usb creator and se what happens09:02
Jordan_UVoita: Did you use unetbootin to make the Ubuntu USB that did work?09:02
Voitayes jordan but that was made in windows09:02
Jordan_UVoita: FreeDOS won't help you boot (X)Ubuntu.09:02
VoitaI have tried to use unetbottin now again with a windows puter but same result09:03

Voitayes it is09:05
Voitafirst priority09:05
ychaouchehello #ubuntu09:06
ychaoucheI found so many locations where .el (emacs) files are put.09:06
kothaguy_ubuntuvoita unetbootin is the excellent one,select disk image,and select your usb drive,it works perfect,which ubuntu version r u using?09:06
Jordan_UVoita: Try holding shift during boot to get to Ubuntu's grub menu (from the Ubuntu installed to the internal drive) and run "ls -l" and see if your drive is listed.09:06
ychaoucheWhere do you suggest me to put a downloaded .el file so that emacs can see and load it when required ?09:06
Voitakothaguy i have tried unetbootin 5 times now and 1 win win and the stick is not bootable in ubuntu09:07
JusticeZeroDoes anyone know what might have patched earlier this week that would break one of my wine programs?09:07
Voita1 with windows09:07
kothaguy_ubuntudid u formatted ur stick with fat3209:08
kothaguy_ubuntudid u formatted ur usb stick?09:08
Voitayes I have formatted it several times09:08
Jordan_UVoita: If it is try running "root=(hdX); chainloader +1; boot" where (hdX) is the drive containing the partition with Xubuntu, not the partition itself.09:08
JusticeZeroI'm having some odd behavior with wine, and mumble stoppped being able to connect.09:08
gordonjcpVoita: unetbootin is total cack09:08
Voitajordan are you talking grub?09:09
gordonjcpVoita: I've never been able to get it to produce anything resembling a bootable image, from any ISO09:09
kothaguy_ubuntuunetbootin works perfect for me on ubuntu 10.04 in my acer aspire one09:09
Voitai just wish it would produce a stick for me that works to09:10
Jordan_UVoita: Yes.09:10
oliver_kothaguy_ubuntu , can u update now?09:10
gordonjcpkothaguy_ubuntu: the most I've got out of it is a broken-looking text-mode bootloader09:10
Jordan_UVoita: If what I suggest works then there is nothing wrong with the USB drive or what unetbootin has done and it's instead some sort of BIOS bug.09:10
Voitaok can you please refer me to that information so that i can read more about it, not confortable with grub yet :)09:10
gordonjcpI'm amazed that Ubuntu still doesn't have a USB stick image; that alone makes it one of the hardest distros to install09:11
kothaguy_ubuntuoliver_, :no unable to update,same fetching error occuring09:11
oliver_kothaguy_ubuntu show me the command you executed09:12
recognoscoVoita: what are you trying to do? create a bootable Xubuntu USb stick from ISO? or boot into a USB drive Xubuntu installation?09:12
pookysougata: that's just for changing the cpu freq, but thanks for trying.09:12
recognoscogordonjcp: i use usb-creator (from Ubuntu) and it works perfectly.09:13

moata_u"$("$@")"  what is does exactly :)09:15
gordonjcprecognosco: right, but that still requires you to have a bootable functioning install with X and everything working09:15
Voitarecognoso I tried that several times last night with no luck09:15
recognoscogordonjcp: Voita says he/she has an existing Ubuntu installation09:16

recognoscogordonjcp: you bet. i work part time at staples.09:20
oliver_kothaguy_ubuntu            thing is that when u just export the http_proxy in a terminal it's not set in env    so it just works for the terminal you executed the command in09:20
gordonjcprecognosco: in all seriousness, I don't think I've had a CD drive in a PC for about ten years09:20
gordonjcpthis laptop has one, no idea if it works09:20
gordonjcpI wish it had a floppy drive, that would actually be useful09:21

Narccoz_:  Oh, really. Can you explain why ? To be clear it's not just the web pages that are not anti-aliased but the whole interface. It seems it doesn't use Gnome subpixel smoothing settings.09:55
Narccoz_:  Yes, I did.09:55

oliver_hehehe, have you been successful10:00
Narccoz_:  Yeah, I tried that, but it removes and replaces the installed version of Firefox 3.6 with daily builds I think and I don't like that. Plus it's rebranded as Minefield.10:00

=== mohammad is now known as Guest4083
coz_Narc, if those are different  ..set firefox to the same font and see what happens10:06
Narccoz_:  Application font is set to default "Ubuntu" and default serif is Times in FF. Other settings are default.10:06
NarcOk, I'll try that and removing msttcorefonts10:06
Narccoz_:  Thanks10:06

erUSULlittle-tux: server edition or minimal11:46
ubottuUbuntu Server Edition is a release of Ubuntu designed especially for server environments, including a server specific !kernel and no !GUI. The install CD contains many server applications. Current !LTS version is !Lucid (Lucid Lynx 10.04) - More info: http://www.ubuntu.com/products/whatisubuntu/serveredition - Guide: https://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/ - Support in #ubuntu-server11:46
ubottuThe Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD11:46
Gnea!alt | little-tux11:46
ubottulittle-tux: The Alternate CD is a classic text-mode install CD. It supports a wider range of hardware than the !LiveCD, and can also be used as an upgrade CD. http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/alternative-download#alternate - See also !minimal11:46

yaccgnewb, not really, but then I've added the relevant modules to /etc/initramfs-tools/modules, rerun update-initramfs and hope for the best, I personally want just to have the USB stuff accessible as I'm dropping to the busybox cmdline anyway => I hate to have to retype crypt passwords for half-dozens PVs especially when it's the same for all PVs.11:47
gaelfxhey, I've got a CD-Rom that worked perfectly well with the liveusb, but now that I've installed, it takes over 5 minutes to actually load any CD to the point that I can use it. How can I figure out what's going wrong and make my CD-Rom work again?11:47
GneaerUSUL: ironically enough, I could only get my new workstation up and running using server as a base11:47
Curly_QJust curious, I am able to SSH into my Linux box. When I logged into root it told me that I could upgrade the root program. I type in the command prompt and get a:   "Welcome to root" message. Whas that a good idea to apt-get it?11:47
yaccgnewb, so I'm adding a small script to initrd that asks for one password and tries to unlock all PVs with it.11:47
gaelfxas a side note, putting anything in the CD drive makes the entire system REALLY laggy11:47

gaelfxGnea: I built it myself, and like I said before, it works fine if I use a liveusb, it just doesn't work after install11:57

AutonomiserSay how do you go back from Black Ports and Pre Release updates?12:45
NeoCicakhi all.... i've just updated my nvidia driver to 270.29 (using x-swat)...... now my games wont display correctly under wine..... is there anyway for me to rollback to the older nvidia-driver?12:45
CanTonichey guys. i am new to ubuntu and have to install some tools. a tutorial says "First off, there are a number of add-ons you’ll likely want to load. For each of these just download the latest source. I was able to simply run ./configure, make, make install for each of these with no hiccups." what do they mean? do i have to enter ./configue and then make and then make install while being in the...12:46
CanTonic...directory of the tool i want to install?12:46
hateball!compile | CanTonic12:46
gaelfxNeoCicak: I assume x-swat is a ppa?12:46
ubottuCanTonic: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first)12:46
Gnealarious: perhaps you could be a bit more descriptive about what it is you're working with12:46
CanTonicthank you guys. i will have a look12:47

NeoCicakgaelfx: yeah12:48
gaelfxNeoCicak: so you should be able to go into Synaptic, purge the nvidia package from x-swat, then unmark it or remove from repos and then install the nvidia-current package again12:49
NeoCicakgaelfx: ok.. thx :)12:49
Dr_WillisAutonomiser:  'backuports' is just a normal repo you could enable and use, and perhaps use ppa-purge to clean out from it..  Not sure about 'pre-release updates'  You mean you upgraded to 11.04?12:49
gaelfxNeoCicak: no problem12:49
GneaNeoCicak: you can actually install multiple versions of the nvidia driver at once, just make sure you install the one that works with your card.... various releases are only for certain timespans of cards...12:50
AutonomiserI have unchecked the Black Ports and Pre Release options in Software Sources and the run sudo apt-get update and then sudo apt-get upgrade. Will that do it?12:50
AutonomiserNo just the Pre Release updates for 10.1012:51
GneaAutonomiser: what's a Black Port?12:51
NeoCicakGnea: yea... i remember i used to be able to select the driver in 'additional drivers'... but it only shows one atm :(12:51
Dr_WillisAutonomiser:  You mean 'Back Ports' ?12:51
Dr_WillisAutonomiser:  if you installed stuff from them. those options wont remove the pacakges.12:51
AutonomiserYes sorry I meant backports12:52
gaelfxGnea: well, irqpoll doesn't seem to have changed anything, I'll try the pci=routeir thing. It doesn't matter what part of the options I put that in, right?12:53
AutonomiserSince I have installed theses my on-board microphone has stop working12:53
Gneagaelfx: as long as it's at the end12:54
AutonomiserDr_Willis is there a way to uninstall them?12:54
GneaAutonomiser: interesting, I've noticed that my onboard mic stopped working on my netbook awhile ago, I have to plug in an external mic for it to work12:54
GneaI'm about ready to blame plymouth12:55
gaelfxGnea: Plymouth still looks like crap with nvidia drivers :(12:55
GneaI just disable it12:56
Gneaut my mic is still broke12:56
gaelfxugh, no joy with pci=routeirq either12:57
gaelfxactually, it seems to have worsened the situation, my panels just disappeared when it decided it couldn't mount12:57
Dr_WillisAutonomiser:  try the ppa-purge tool.. or find them in your pacakge manager and just remove the pacakges.12:58
gaelfxit's just too queird12:59

BryanRuizhi.. trying to install sun-java6-jre from the universe13:27
BryanRuizhaving problems ;)13:27
Dr_WillisExploiter:  i doubt if that framevbuffer is causing a slowdown. You could try the 'nofb' option to the kernel at boot time.13:27
Exploiterhow do i add nofb to boot option in ubuntu maverick?13:28
BryanRuizcan anyone help me getting sun java on 10.10?13:28
Dr_WillisExploiter:  in /etc/default/grub  change quiet splash to be 'quiet splash nofb' perhaps..13:28
Dr_Willisi think thats still valid option these days.13:29
BryanRuiznever mind13:29
BryanRuizpartner repository13:29
Dr_WillisExploiter:  or just remove quiet splash totally  so the option is blank. . run 'sudo update-grub' and reboot and see if it has any effect.  You could alwo just test these options from the grub menu by editing the  menu items.13:30

=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest45560
Dr_WillisExploiter:  see what that option does.. it may be setting a framebuffer res.. but i dident think it did that. I always disable extras like that.13:31
nicofsDr_Willis, yes but for that i would have to burn a live cd and boot from that to install to a usb drive - i have ubuntu running on this pc already...13:32
Exploiterso shall i just remove quite splash??13:32
Dr_Willisnicofs:  you can do it from 2 usb drives.. one has the live-install setup.. you then use to install to the 2nd usb.13:32
ssbplsjrib:how to fix it?http://paste.ubuntu.com/577834/13:32
Dr_WillisExploiter:  you can do what you want. its easy to change it back13:32
Dr_WillisExploiter:  removeing quiet splash - will result in a 'text'  login, no plymouth anuimation. and i think no framebuffer.13:33
Dr_Willisreplaceing 'quiet splash' with 'text' will give a text login, and NOT start the GDM service either..13:33

Exploiterwell.. i just get a nice post.. it says old option had replaced sudo modprobe uvesafb mode=1280x800-32, now mode is mode_option13:44
