Jordan_UI am getting an odd problem that seems to only occur when using USB devices that transfer "signifigant" amounts of data, i.e. drives and a USB 3G dongle and likely anything other than a simple keyboard and mouse. The problem is the my system load increases drastically untill I eventually need to reboot. How can I check if this is a hardware issue as it seems to be?00:00

Eighteensi just installed sendmail, and it's working, I actually got the mail in my inbox, however it took the form like 2 minutes before the page refreshes, and gives confirmation that the mail was sent using the mailform, doesn anyone have a solution as to why sendmail is going so slow00:06
dejan_it appears installed on Synaptic Package Manager but I installed it through terminal I want to reinstall it through SYPM00:06
alphonsoinside-out-bunny: forgive my noob-ness - but my rc.local file contains logic (a do start statement) do i put the command before that logic?00:06
dejan_i just installed ubuntu00:07
phoenixsamprasgratz and rocks00:07
inside-out-bunnyalphonso: what does it have in there? by default it should just have comments and an exit statement00:07
=== rtdos is now known as z80
Ben64dejan_: why would you not want to use the one from synaptic?00:07
raidodejan_: they use the same backend, if SPM shows it installed then your good to go00:08
inside-out-bunnyalphonso: either way it doesn't matter where you put it in rc.local as long as it's before the exit statement.00:08
Ben64oh i read that wrong00:08
dejan_it appears i have installed (in Synaptic) : Apache2, Apache 2.2-bin, Apache 2.2-common,  Apache mpm-worker00:08

dejan_and then install them through Synaptic00:08
raidodejan_: no. its pointless, youve already installed it00:08
dejan_i have instaleld them from terminal somehow one guy told me00:08
alphonsoinside-out-bunny: i didn't alter this - not sure why it doesn't look like the default00:09
inside-out-bunnyalphonso: this isn't a machine you installed/set up?00:09

raidodejan_: Its fine.00:10

dejan_Apache2, Apache 2.2-bin, Apache 2.2-common,  Apache mpm-worker00:10
Ben64dejan_: using the terminal to install stuff is the same as synaptic00:10
dejan_ok then00:10
dejan_Ben64: can I use terminal to install stuff in a bad way?00:11
alphonsoinside-out-bunny: sending you the file00:11
Ben64dejan_: synaptic is just a front end for apt-get, if you used apt-get to install in on the terminal, it works the exact same way00:12

Eighteensinside-out-bunny, for some reason a mail form i use takes about 2 minutes before confirmation is given that the mail was sent, and the same mailform was used on another server, and it was really fast, just wondering what the delay is00:15
Midleruser warsow -> login -> play warsow -> exit warsow [logout user warsow]00:15
alphonsoben64: thanks00:16

ubottualphonso: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)01:21
BaKeRi already did a clean install01:21
alphonsook, who is not a bot here?01:22
KM0201BaKeR: you'll get a window "update manager" that pops up (or you can run it from system/admin)... it will check for updates, then just click install, and it will install and apply them01:22
xrdodrxalphonso, everyone except floodbot and ubottu we hope :P01:22
hwildeBaKeR, system -> admin -> update manager -> settings button at the bottom01:22

di_giorgioMp3player [Capital Inicial - Vivendo e Aprendendo] CeBoLiNhA 201101:24
KM0201BaKeR: then the better solution is to investigate why that is happening, rather than not updating... what are your system specs01:25
rcmaehlBaKeR: Yep01:25
Logan_di_giorgio: please turn that off01:25
RexodusBaKeR: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade does the job.01:25

dejan_they kicked me from httpd because there are ome 'people'..01:26
KM0201BaKeR: you're not making sense, first you ask how to update, then you say you don't want to update because it makes your machine slower, then you say why not just apply the updates.. what exactly is the issue, and what are you tyring to do?01:26
BaKeRno you got me all worng01:26
BaKeRi said do i have to update?01:26
overcluckerBaKeR: you don't have to update your system if you don't want to01:26

PhoenixAndThorHello everyone01:27
ubottuCommon Sense: Just because you can, does not mean you should (and especially recommend to others). Think before you do. "Works for me" does not mean it is ok.

piepieburgerHey, is this the ubuntu help channel?01:36
lusmusuh, why?01:36
Logan_piepieburger: Yes.01:36
iflema!nox | kp01:37
ubottukp: To start your system in text-only mode append 'text' (without the quotes) to the kernel line in the grub menu. You can access the grub menu by pressing Esc (Grub legacy) or Shift (Grub2) during boot. For more info see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BootOptions#Text%20Mode01:37
piepieburgerok thanks, i just installed xchat and wanted to make sure i set it up correctly01:37
IsmAvatarI know 512 MB is a little low for RAM, but is it normal for WinXP to run fairly well when Ubuntu slows to a painful crawl?01:37
Guest18643hwilde, the keyborad shortcut works01:37
iflemakp ssh and reconfig grub maybe...01:37
kpThat would work if i was at the machine01:37
kpthe box is about 50 miles from me01:37
rcmaehlGuest18643: if you want to only do it once you can run pkexec gnome-power-backlight-helper --set-brightness (0-7 here without the parenthesis)01:37
joshdreamland1I apt-get'd libwxbase-2.8-dev; why is setup.h missing?01:38
alphonsoanyone tried gnome3 with an old ati vid card? ati x140001:38
iflemakp ssh to reconfig /etc/default/grub and update-grub01:38
Guest18643rcmaehl, it doesnt do anything01:39
rcmaehlnot 0-7 but like 5 or 4 or 101:39
Guest18643still nope01:39
rcmaehlwhat laptop brand?01:40
rcmaehlyou might need a package01:40
ahaziah77real quick question, i have a friend who needs some help with her computer, might install ubuntu, it is an older xp computer with only 512mb of ram, im not for sure the other specs, but i was wondering what a good version of ubuntu for it would be, can it handle lucid?01:40
skxxahaziah77: try xubuntu.  it's made to run well on older computers.01:40
iflema!lubuntu | ahaziah7701:40
ubottuahaziah77: lubuntu is a project to create a derivative of Ubuntu using the LXDE desktop environment. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu . /join #lubuntu for lubuntu support.01:40
Guest18643rcmaehl, any specifics?01:41
ahaziah77cool, so ill check out xubuntu and lubuntu01:41
rcmaehlGuest18643: I'm lookin01:41
iflemaahaziah77: lubuntu ;)01:41
lusmusi would rec lubuntu instead of xu01:41
rcmaehlI wouldn't recommend kubuntu for 512mb01:42
ahaziah77k, i will have to check out lubuntu, i have heard of xubuntu but not familiar with lubuntu at al01:42
fisixwhat's the diff between xu and lu?01:42
skxxxu runs xfce01:42
skxxlu runs lxde01:42
skxxthat's be the main difference01:43
fisixohhh icic01:43
fisixwhat about ubuntu itself?01:43
lusmusits gnome01:43
skxxubuntu uses gnome standard01:43
KM0201rcmaehl: yeah, no way on KDE.. i'm not sure if gnome would even run that well on that.. that's definitely down to xfce, lxde and openbox levels.01:43
ahaziah77skxx, which makes me beg the question, what is the difference between xfce and lxde?01:43
fisixother than looks01:44
skxxwell i've never run lxde but xfce is meant to be run on a wider variety of computers than gnome and kde01:44
* iflema their all still buntu with a different frontend01:44
skxxit runs well on older computers01:44
icerootahaziah77: one is using qt, the other is using gtk01:44
skxxbut you can make it looks slick if you have a better comp01:44
fisixcan you strap ubuntu with kde instead of gnome?01:44
KM0201skxx: over the last couple years, xfce has become just as bloated as gnome.01:44
ubottukubuntu is Ubuntu with the KDE Software Compilation instead of !Gnome. See http://kubuntu.org for more information - For support join #kubuntu - See also !kde01:44
rcmaehlGuest18643: gddccontrol might help01:44
skxxyou can use whatever you want with vanilla gnome01:44
Guest18643rcmaehl, already have it01:45
skxxyou just go into your package manager and install a new desktop environment, be it kde, xfce, lxde, fluxbox, openbox, blackbox, afterstep, etc etc etc01:45
skxxi'm running xubuntu now and it does pretty well01:46
skxxmy printer's being a bit of a bastard right now, though.01:46
rcmaehlGuest18643: idk can't find anything else01:46
Guest18643thx anyway01:46
KM0201skxx: it runs fine, but i think the advantages that xfce had over gnome, are pretty well gone.01:46
KM0201but it's still a good GUI in my opinion01:46
fisixohhh icic skxx01:46
fisixwhat's the deal with the whole x windows thing and startx? we don't need to deal with that in ubuntu?01:47
My-Computeris there a way to get the guest session prompt to show up on the login screen lucid01:48
rcmaehlMy-Computer: yes01:48
rcmaehlMy-Computer: in the control center you can change it to show guest on the logon screen01:48
skxxfisix: naw x starts up by default01:48
shadghostI got a error when installing using apt-get http://paste.ubuntu.com/578613/01:49
rcmaehlskxx: mine doesn't01:49
skxxfisix: you might need to tink around with your xorg configuration file depending on how ambitious you are01:49
skxxrcmaehl: are you running vanilla ubuntu01:49
rcmaehlskxx: I'm running (IDK) i've installed and uninstalled like 20 different linux images and window manager01:49
EvilPhoenixhow does one go about creating a .deb package so that it can be used as an installer?  and are there any GUI tools to create one?01:49

skxxbut i got sick of using w3m as my browser01:50
lusmusw3m is hardcore man!01:50
skxxi lubs w3m01:51
rcmaehlskxx: w3m does get annoyinga t times but nano is awesome01:51
skxxnever really used nano as a browser01:51
rcmaehlnano = text editor01:51
fisixdoesn't w3m fail for images?01:51
fisixand formatting?01:51
rcmaehlfor console01:52
skxxthat's what i thought01:52
skxxi dig vim for editing01:52
lusmushaha no images no ads xD01:52
skxxi still used gvim when i'm in x01:52
fisixbut no images!!!01:52
Ben64how can i find the version of a package available on apt-get01:52
rcmaehlBetter idea!01:52

skxxfisix: it rocks my socks off01:56

rcmaehlmy netbook w/ ubuntu no play HD videos good it go lag lag lag meh lag derp lag brick lag. What do?01:57
fisixa bit more of a hassle to use than nano though.. but i guess there's advantage in colour schemes. but then i'd just use gedit or an IDE if i were actually coding..01:57

fisixquestionnn, will sudo rm -rf / actually delete root? if not, what's the biggest (or most crucial) directory it can delete? if deleted, can it be easily recovered?02:04
phoenixsamprasAnubArack: clonezilla02:04
lusmusrcmaehl: isnt that like the Mac version of time machine?02:04
jack_^billybob3, i doubt it02:04
jack_^billybob3, type shutdown -h now (to shutdown)02:04
jack_^billybob3, or init 6;02:04
jack_^asctually, id ont think init6 works anymore02:05
skxxfisix: rm -rf will del anything you have the priveleges to delete02:05
macofisix: /lib and /usr/lib are probably the most destructive since then getting any /bin or /usr/bin stuff reinstalled would fail...02:05
billybob3thanks jack, bye02:05
skxxfisix: and there's no getting it back.02:05
RexodusAnubArack: g4u02:05
macofisix: youd have to reinstall the system to recover from removing /02:05
fisixwhoa perfect! thanks guys, hahah02:05
rcmaehlFisix I recommend you not rm -rf /02:05
Random832supposedly deleting from / ends up spinning in /proc02:05
fisixi figured it wouldn't let me though02:05
AnubArackphoenixsampras, i should of knows there are many but witch one is better or at least easies to use ... it's my second day on linux so i'm not that savvy02:05
skxxno it will02:05
fisixbut i dunno, has anyone tried?02:05
overcluckersudo shudown -hP now02:05
skxxyou might have to sudo02:05
fisixit will?!02:05
fisixthen what happens :S?02:06
fisixyou can't do anything?02:06
macofisix: rm has been patched though02:06
jack_^fisix, put home on a seperate partition and then blow everything up except home. you can just re-install ubuntu and most of your stuff well be fine as it gets saved to home02:06
skxxthen, as rcmaehl would say "brick"02:06
jack_^fisix, it will die02:06
qnixI'm experiencing a problem... a table of my database disapear.02:06
rcmaehlfisix: yeah I've emailed the ubuntu website about it and they still haven't got back to me02:06
AnubAracksomething as close to time machine or windows restore would be great02:06
macofisix: by default if you try it on / itll warn you. the manpage will explain how to make it "allowed" to do that02:06
jack_^maco, i want to test that but....02:06
fisixohhhh icic02:06
macojack_^: just read the manpage02:06
macojack_^: itll explain what i'm referring to02:07
fisixso you could just toss it in a shellscript and own someone?02:07
jack_^maco, yeah but what if its wrong D: heh02:07
macojack_^: it's right. ive seen the warning ;-)02:07
fisixassuming they sudo pass02:07
jack_^fisix, they're are much more exciting ways to own someone :D02:07
overcluckermaco: i dont think coreutils was compiled wit hthat warning on ubuntu02:07
fisixo rly :o02:07
jack_^maco, is that upstream?02:07
fisixi'd like to know... hahah02:07
skxxjack_^: ooo like a logic bomb02:07
macojack_^: dunno02:07
macooverclucker: it is02:07
rcmaehlsudo rm -rf /bin/rm02:07
macooverclucker: someone put the bad command in here a few days ago and someone who ran it unawares pasted in "it told me this.... "02:07
skxxhah cute.02:08
lusmusyou use -i on commands too02:08
jack_^maco where in the man page?02:08
macojack_^: the part about preserving root02:08
jack_^       --preserve-root02:08
jack_^              do not remove `/' (default)02:08
* jack_^ fires up a vm to test02:08

fisixwhat would mounting dev null do?02:09
fisixfreeze, but restart would be good?02:09
shcherbakrcmaehl: Instead of bugging people on irc, do it in terminal!02:09
rcmaehlfisix: /dev/null = blackhole02:09
lusmusis ubuntu server good if you gonna get a server and still want to learn linux?02:10

lusmusskxx: is ubuntu server good for server and you wanna learn linux?02:13
skxxfisix: there are so many ways to bone your system if you've got root priveleges.  that's why ubuntu runs without root by default.02:13
DwarfWhat's the best way to link an ata message in dmesg to the mount point in my system?  I have a hard drive (ata7) dying on me according to dmesg, but I have no idea without cracking the box open and tracing the lines which drive it is.  I wanted to figure out what the mount point was so I know whether to fix it quick, or if it's an unused drive.02:13
skxxlusmus: if you wanna learn linux, ubuntu rocks.  vanilla ubuntu is still pretty good with running servers, depending on what you wanna do02:13

ubottuLAMP is an acronym for Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP. However, the term is often used for setups using alternative but different software, such as Perl or Python instead of PHP, and Postgres instead of MySQL. For help with setting up LAMP on Ubuntu, see  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ApacheMySQLPHP - See also the Server CD installation process (different in Edgy+)02:17

dejan_i installed php5 but it say in synaptic that will remove apache2-mpm-worker and istall prefork02:19
dejan_what this means?02:19
fisixi know there are diff installers and kernel versions.. thus different software available for each linux distro. so one chooses a distro mainly based on the software that it's suited for?02:19
tsimpsonzach: rpm and deb are package formats, and usually can be converted to and from each other, but "KDE" is not an OS btw02:19
zachhow do i view private messages?02:19
craigbass1976Vesuivius, media/disk  or it's just the whole media directory?02:19

craigbass1976Vesuivius, I don't know what else to tell you.  It's easier when I've got something in hand to play with.  What you may have to do is tail -f /var/log/messages then unplug and replug the thing in and watch what scrolls by.  Then google for the messages you see; that's how I start.  You can't be the only one with this ipod, and I'm sure someone's got it working.  Search the ubuntu forums for that stuff too, you're more a02:35

FivewaysHey guys, I installed 10.10 this morning and I'm not getting a bootloader. Never had this problem before. I've tried updating grub and everything, I was finally able to get it to generate the menu.lst but still no bootloader when I restart02:41
noremorse1mjs: talk in private... i just sent you a message02:41
rp21it keeps giving me options to "theme". I don#t want to theme, i want resize handles that are big enough for me to find them!02:41
frankroanit-wit then no i wiped the hard drive and an ubuntu only install02:42
tsimpsondejan_: synaptic both downloads and installs packages, php5-gd is the the default Ubuntu repositories so you don't need to enable anything extra02:42
iggy19frankroa: the good news is twofold: 1. your system is almost certainly there and bootable, if you can make grub find it, and, 2. there is actuall not much danger of f'ing up your system irreperably based upon the commands you can issue in the grub shell (take that with a grain of salt, but that's been my experience)02:42
sgurui recently installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook version.. on bootup the font on the taskbar look corrupted and as soon as i take my cursor to dockbar the entire screen restarts02:42

Vesuiviuscraigbass1976: no, sorry about that02:43
craigbass1976Vesuivius, I don't know what else to tell you.  It's easier when I've got something in hand to play with.  What you may have to do is tail -f /var/log/messages then unplug and replug the thing in and watch what scrolls by.  Then google for the messages you see; that's how I start.  You can't be the only one with this ipod, and I'm sure someone's got it working.  Search the ubuntu forums for that stuff too, you're more a02:43

tripelbmeaneye your answer just before telling me about synaptic.  (I want to do it in terminal. I have a heckle with synaptic. we come from different worlds. It just annoys me. I have never made it work. yadda yadda) Apt-Forget maybe?04:31

soreauankers: jiltdil You don't need ssh. Use scp05:01
teagegartral- like i said, it mounts just fine and i can sync in rythmbox too, but to add photos i have to use gtkpod and i need to manually mount for that. since it auto mounts when i plug it in i was thinking i could direct gtkpod to the location of the mount.05:01
LittleRedit checks to see if someone has 'touched 'the ports... then I close them off05:01

MeanEYEor whichever your wlan is05:22

epicentercan it be run from within the OS06:00
kothaguy_ubuntuMeanEYE, :both,when i click on start recording,1-2 minutes it will be black screen,after that,it will struck06:01
epicenterI cannot boot a liveCD; no cdrom drive06:01
MeanEYEkothaguy_ubuntu: did you try with different program?06:01
bazhangepicenter, then put it on usb stick via unetbootin06:01
kothaguy_ubuntuMeanEYE, :Different programme means?06:01
epicenterbazhang: I'll try, but my motherboard has a fault that makes it only boot usb every 1 out of 100 times06:01
tripelbmeaneye, well I found a lot more pages. Almost all in europe, none of which mention this model. Except of course the page that says it is "plug and pray", lol.  I'll "hang it up" for tonight. I'm intending to phone tech support tomorrow. - Thanks for putting your mind to this. I am sooo much smarter about this tonight than I was yesterday when I was sick. Peace out.06:01

epicentersometimes cases have an external usb port that is wired up wrong or not at all06:04
MeanEYEkothaguy_ubuntu: try installing different program for recording06:04
soreauepicenter: Is it your stance that it should show the usb as installation media from gparted?06:04
epicenterbut if you can boot from it it just sounds like a bug in the ubuntu installer.06:04
kothaguy_ubuntuMeanEYE, :can you tell some apps06:05
epicentersoreau: I would think it should06:05
soreauyea, ubiquity is a P.O.S.06:05

eckirchnIt's a very different world here then #fedora.. interesting...06:31
ChaorainI wanted to see Unity allright? Possibly use this as a way to repair other computers06:31
Chaoraineckirchn: how so?06:31
eckirchnChaorain: very different questions...06:32
MeanEYEChaorain: as of version 11.04 there will be no Netbook edition of ubuntu. My suggestion would be to try 11.04 version. It's still alpha, but there is one 40ish days to release.06:32
eckirchnChaorain: just got on here to see what the ubuntu world was like... :)06:32
MeanEYEChaorain: also, that Unity in 10.10 is not good, it's slow and uses different compoziting than new unity.06:32
Wolfwalker_PrimeChaorain, the best way to repair other computers with Ubuntu is to install it to a USB flash drive, install ClamAV and boot from it on the target computer.06:32
eckirchnWolfwalker_Prime: like using chroot?06:33
Wolfwalker_PrimeI don't know how Unity could help with computer repair though...06:33

ChaorainMeanEYE: 0.o thats interesting06:36
soreau]i[koN: You can use the open radeon driver or fglrx06:36
MeanEYE]i[koN: ubuntu comes with opensource version of ATI drivers, but you can install additional ones06:37
]i[koNi did but i cant config my settings06:37

ChaorainMeanEYE: so I could install 11.04 pre-release to a flash drive and try it that way?06:37
]i[koNits saying drivers need to be install or no gpu is installed06:37
soreau]i[koN: What is saying that?06:38
]i[koNi dont know06:38
soreau]i[koN: You must be doing something for it to give this message06:38
]i[koNwhat is it doing06:38
ChaorainWolfwalker_Prime: can ClamAV clean viruses off a Windows partition?06:38
MeanEYEChaorain: yes, that would be my suggestion. Please bare in mind it's still alpha quality. But like I said some 48 days to full release so you can play with it.06:39

ChaorainMeanEYE: Uh where is 11.04? and is there a program that will install it to a USB, not just make a live USB?06:41
Wolfwalker_PrimeChaorain, I always just go through the normal install process, but when I select a disk I select my flash drive.06:41
Wolfwalker_PrimeAnd BE SURE to tell GRUB to write to the flash drive in step 7, advanced tab.06:42
eckirchnWolfwalker_Prime: what program does ubuntu provide to clean windows viruses06:43
MeanEYEChaorain: http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/natty/alpha306:43
Wolfwalker_Primeeckirchn, clamAV.  I sure don't keep it around to defend Ubuntu against viruses.  :P06:43
MeanEYEChaorain: you can use program you have in your 10.10 installation06:43
ChaorainWolfwalker_Prime: now why didn't I think of that?06:44
eckirchnWolfwalker_Prime: it will scan ntfs for viruses?06:44
MeanEYEChaorain: System -> Administration -> Startup disk creator06:44
Wolfwalker_Primeeckirchn, works for me every time.06:44

MeanEYEred2kic: oh ok :D I thought you needed help07:09
ChipzzzMeanEYE: I still can't find it anywhere... can I keep my radeon drivers with unity or am I going to have to suffer with ATI's proprietary ones (or spring for an nVidia card)?07:10

MeanEYEChipzzz: sorry, you can't find what?07:10
MeanEYEchu_: you can compile without having root priviledges07:10

amh345great, thanks08:53
icerootikonia: sure?08:53
ikoniaiceroot: yup08:53
AnubArackarand, i said w/o compiz08:53
icerootikonia: hm, then why is http_proxy working with export http_proxy...08:53
ikoniaiceroot: you exported it08:53
pankaj_sharmasomeone plz tell me how to switchback to fullscreen in irrsi08:53
icerootikonia: yes and closing the terminal08:54
arandAnubArack: Oh, didn't know that was a compiz-only thing08:54
ikoniaiceroot: because you exported it08:54
icerootikonia: hm, if i am correct, you said, its lost when closing the terminal08:54
AnubArackarand, ofc i'm not sure as i'm new to this but the setting are in there08:54
arandpankaj_sharma: fullscreen?08:54
majidPointer_hi all08:54
majidPointer_any body there08:54
pankaj_sharmaarand yes08:55
ikoniaiceroot: for of all, it depends if it's set globally to be "exported" into child processes, or if it's just set within the shell08:55
majidPointer_do u khnow how can i draw a polygon in QT and change that bear/?08:55
icerootikonia: yes, thats correct, so i think i just get your answer wrong08:55
arandAnubArack: Nope, that's available in metacity as well, not at all discoverable, but anyways.08:56
icerootmajidPointer_: #qt i would try08:56
ikoniaiceroot: try it "export ICEROOT="hi"" close the shell, open a new one and echo $ICEROOT08:56
majidPointer_iceroot : tanx08:56
icerootikonia: hm, strange, its lost08:56
AnubArackarand, good to know, esp for laptops that i can't get compiz on08:56
ikoniaiceroot: because it's only in that shell and children of that shell08:57
AnubAracksigh why bother with backup inside linux ... i'll just boot into 7 and copy over the wubi folder08:57
ikoniaAnubArack: don't bother then, it's up to you08:57
icerootikonia: what is the way to have it global without touching /etc/profile or other related files08:58
AnubArackikonia, this is my 4th install in 2 days ....08:58
ikoniaiceroot: it depends, for example http_proxy which you referenced earlier I think is coming down from the gnome desktop's "enviornment" into your shell, but I've not looked at the current gnome environment enough to be sure08:58
AnubAracktrying to fox this and that ... and end up ruining the os08:58
Chipzzzikonia: so why did his export of the  http_proxy persist beyond his shell?... not taking issue... just curious08:59
ikoniaAnubArack: that doesn't change what I said, it's up to you if you want to backup08:59
ikoniaChipzzz: it actually doesn't, I think (not looked) it's the gnome desktop enviornment that's populating it08:59
AnubArackwell it's easier to copy 9 gb of file than wait for an install + setting up ...08:59
icerootikonia: hm, ok, normally http_proxy is a normal shell-variable which is working fine without gnome but i think i should to some reading about shell/bash basics08:59
ikoniaiceroot: it is a normal shell varible, however it's also used in gnome09:00
Chipzzzikonia: so changing a gnome env variable withing a shell will change it globally?09:00
dougztrwell, here goes. I'm upgrading ubuntu studio from who know when to current. 387 upgraded packages.09:00
ikoniaiceroot: try a test "export HTTP_PROXY=""" close that shell, open a new one "echo $HTTP_PROXY"09:00
ikoniaChipzzz: not from the shell, as that varible is still a "shell" varible09:01
=== Guest56075 is now known as DarkDevil
icerootikonia: lost, so i think i did something different last time setting http_proxy09:02
ikoniaiceroot: agreed, I think it's set within gnome and being pushed down to your shell09:02
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest28125
ikoniaiceroot: (for example)09:02
Chipzzzikonia: interesting...09:02
icerootikonia: ah, i know the reason. normally my login-shell is zsh and there it is working, just not working in bash09:02
mushinAnyone know about any good programming/java channels?09:03
ikoniaiceroot: so you can set ICEROOT="hi" in zsh, close zsh open a new one and echo $ICEROOT and it says "hi"09:03
icerootmajidPointer_: ##java09:03

icerootmajidPointer_: sorry wrong nick09:03
ikoniaChipzzz: sorry,. not you09:03
ikoniacyberbob: no09:03
icerootikonia: correct, i dont know if it is zsh default or because of my "funny" .zshrc which is doing very cool things09:04
Chipzzzikonia: np09:04
ikoniaiceroot: I must have a look at that09:04
cyberbobikonia: can you please explain a little . .09:04
icerootikonia: but related to bash, you are correct, export-vars are getting lost if the shell is closed09:04
ikoniacyberbob: "no you can't do that"09:04
ikoniaiceroot: I'm surprised they work in zsh to be honest09:05
icerootikonia: i dont mean, setting something in bash, is seen by zsh, i mean, setting export in zsh will survive closing the shell09:06
ikoniaiceroot: no, I know what you mean, I'm surprised it works in zsh, I'll have a look at it09:06
icerootikonia: my config is holding "global export" which is doing the job09:07
ikoniaiceroot: ah, so it's a specific setting09:07
icerootikonia: correct, not zsh default09:07
icerootikonia: but a default zsh is boring :)09:08
red2kiciceroot: so is a default bashrc. ;)09:09
cyberbobikonia: I found something that might work in my case . .will share when got that working :D09:09
cyberbobthx for the help09:09
red2kicI'd say anything default is boring. we must CUSTOMIZE to our likings. :)09:09
icerootred2kic: yes more or less but trust me a tuned zsh is much better then bash (as login-shell)09:10
red2kiciceroot: Maybe I'll give it a go one day.09:10
icerootred2kic: i like to call zsh "compiz for the shell"09:10
red2kiciceroot: I see.09:10
icerootred2kic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M3k7jpY5GRQ  have a look at zsh09:11

SonneGrav, so you're using the proprietary drivers aye?09:16
GravSonne: yes09:16
Sonneif you have time at your hand, you could try disabling them and checking if the problem persists - if it doesn't, at least we know what to blame :)09:17

SonneGrav, that's not how it's supposed to be, but if you don't feel confident enough i can understand it - what about trying with a different browser then? chrome maybe09:19

Vanchatavasti: the update manager is still bugged, a lot of people experience problems with is while updating to another version of ubuntu. for now its safer to stick to the burnign of a cd or USB09:25
red2kictavasti: It is faster and far less errors if you commit to a full clean installation instead of upgrading multiple times.09:25
tavastifull clean install, and 2 days configuring all software again09:26
Vanchatrue that red2kic, and the existing user settings might interfere with the installation after it is finished09:26
Vanchatavasti you can make a backup09:26
GravSonne: I've disabled them and will try to restart09:26
tavastidoes cd-boot support upgrading, or is it allways fresh install?09:27

tavastiChipzzz, thanks09:36
r3duxThanks, tavasti - forgot to bookmark09:36
zeroburn@r3dux - oki, let me start with the one bugging me most.. Sometimes when i open more than one window, either a program and a folder, 2 folders, or 2 programs and more... The windows stop responding. I can interact with the currently open window, but i cant switch or close any windows, have to alt-F4 to desktop, and SOMETIMES that fixes the problem, till i open a second window09:39
r3duxzeroburn -  why would you try to run a program and open a folder at the same time? I'm genuinely curious and definitely want to help you get everything sorted and working. I'm just wondering why.09:40
Chipzzzzeroburn: how much memory u have?09:40
r3duxzeroburn - OR, are you just saying that when more than one window or program is open it gives you issues and the windows stop responding? I might have misread you there!09:41
iAmTheDaveis there a reason a script in /etc/cron.d wouldn't be executing? i have it in the slightly different format where the user is specified as the second argument, etc.09:41
zeroburn@redux - eg I open audacity and then my music folder to drag the song into audacity.. then the windows stops responding, or copying a file from one folder to the next (seperate windows, not the split window mode)09:41

stylishg33kI installed the os through the usb method (I'm running on an Alienware M11x R2) and everything worked great. I used the netbook edition, since I figured for the small size of this laptop, it'd be a better fit.

coz_zeroburn,   this is very odd considering the issues you are having,,, did everything go well during install?10:20
Chipzzzbazz: maybe you have to reset your name servers10:21
bazzChipzzz: you mean in /etc/resolv.conf?10:21
zeroburn@coz_, yes. Had zero errors and nothing raised any problems, should a install the drivers and work from there with you? Because after reading up on the internet about the issue, it came to light the drivers cant read from the laptop's display the supportted ressolutions?10:21
oCeanSymmetria: that can be done on the fly: echo 'cfq' > /sys/block/DEV/queue/scheduler (where DEV=sda for example)10:22
Chipzzzbazz: I was thinking in network manager...10:22

pauruDasEi1, ok so i will tell him to run first "sudo dpkg --configure -a" and then "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras cheese"13:55
Radiobuzzwell, mesa needs xorg 1.5 or superior13:56
Avaszikonia, this is something like drag and drop.. it tries to drag and drop anything i click.. hyperlinks.. icons.. etc etc.13:56
RadiobuzzI checked synaptic and apparently my version is indeed superior to that13:56
DasEi1pauru: yes, and then sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade, and TAb-key lets you jump to the OK buttons13:56
ikoniaAvasz: don't drag and drop then13:56
Avaszikonia, can it be related to my touchpad/eraser head drivers?13:57

ikoniaAvasz: I have no idea13:57
Avaszikonia, no. i dont drag and drop.. it just does it.. whatever i click.13:57
