preecheris it possible to install winff,devede & imagination and they work? when i try to install devede and imagination i get a message telling me that i have to remove certain libavcodec files (ubuntu 10.10)00:00
DasEiDuck79: so get it in ver 0.97 or such00:00
Jordan_UDasEi: Why did you install 8.04 rather than 10.04?00:00
W43372th0r: The clock on the panel is five hours behind, but when I click on it, it shows the correct time zone, city, and even the correct time, but the clock above it is wrong00:00
DasEiJordan_U: I'm helping Duck...00:00
Duck79DasEi - so do I look for an older version and downloaed and install it on the ubuntu 8.04?00:01
=== icaro is now known as Guest45849
th0rW43372: there is a hw clock and when you installed linux you probably told it to set the hw clock to local time. Then on bootup the system tries to adjust that time for the local timezone. I think it will fix the problem if you tell ubuntu to set the hw clock to utc00:01
DasEiDuck79: it's a cd you burn and then boot from it (or use a usb-stick)00:01

epicenterQ: I have onboard AMD/ATI video but also have a PCIe ATI video card. Onboard works awesome in Ubuntu. How do I get the 2nd video adapter to kick in?01:15
navatwoHi, I was just trying to modify my partition table and GParted buggered up.01:16
navatwoCould someone point me in the right direction for restoring my partition table? I have the details etc.01:16
noahnavatwo, "buggered up"??01:17
epicenternavatwo: I am no pro on this. But AFAIK if you assemble a grub config file matching your existing partitions (that are bootable), you should be in business01:17
epicenterif Grub can run you can boot to any accessible volume01:17
navatwoepicenter: Its not grub thats broken. noah the operations for moving failed.01:18
noahfailed how?01:18
epicenterMy typical solution for a busted partition table is to move out any data that can be salvaged, remove all partitions and set up new ones01:18
epicenterthen move it back01:19
epicenterThough I've not encountered a partition table that just shit the bed out of nowhere; it must relate to a new OS install or attempt01:19
navatwonoah: it told me to save the details and that the partition movement failed. I have the file.01:19
Foppso, i *think* I need to change my file permissions of the system, but I'm told it's a read only file system... and I need to sign in as root to do that?01:19
Cody3290I'm just gonna reinstall ubuntu01:19
Cody3290sudo is for root, i believe01:19
iiicygnavatwo, show details.01:19
navatwoiiicyg: I will upload it, one second.01:20
Foppyeah, but i dont know how to change permissions via the terminal01:20
iiicygnavatwo, http://paste.ubuntu.com01:20
Fopponce i figure that out, hopefully I'll be home and dry.01:20
navatwoiiicyg: its an HTML files.01:20
epicenterI'm really curious if someone can figure this out. I have onboard video AND a PCIe graphics card hooked up to the 2nd monitor. Ubuntu does not immediately activate the 2nd. Where should I start looking to get this sucker running?01:20
epicenterBoth cards are AMD/ATI made01:21
navatwoepicenter: install the proprietary drivers for your graphics card.01:21
j_ayen_greenI have a NAS that I mount as CIFS, recently I've been getting an error at the start of booting about not being able to use the socket, I think it's error 101. Oddly enough, the NAS is still available for use by simplebackup, but what was happening is that right after the backup was written the system would hang (cursor still moves) with high CPU. Descheduling the backup ended that issue.01:21
iiicygnavatwo, http://dump.bitcheese.net/01:21
navatwoiiicyg: and noah http://paste.ubuntu.com/579088/01:21
epicenternavatwo: Ihave installed the prop. drivers (ATI Catalyst Ctrl Ctr.) and only the onboard is seen01:22
iiicygnavatwo, ok/01:22
navatwoiiicyg: noah http://dump.bitcheese.net/files/ojijuxe/gparted_details.htm easier to read version.01:22
epicenterIn Windows, the ATI Ctrl. Ctr. will find both cards as both share one giant driver pack.01:22
navatwoepicenter: how are you looking for the monitors? Through the ctrl center?01:23

need_spacebazhang: none just the cd01:26
TheMusicGuyFor some reason, I am no longer being asked for a password whenever I used sudo or gksudo. It just automatically grants root permissions, even though I haven't used sudo/gksudo since starting this session.01:26

bazhangneed_space, then that wont work01:27

Jordan_Unavatwo: Implying that there is nothing that needs to be reverted that gparted has done.01:27
bazhangneed_space, its a fixed size. the cd is not resizable01:27
noahTheMusicGuy, does relevant /etc/sudoers line say NOPASSWD ?01:27
navatwoso essentially, gparted is upset over nothing?01:27
need_spacebazhang: how can I add swap to it01:27
navatwoover something* but it hasn't affected anything01:28
bazhangneed_space, you dont01:28
TheMusicGuynoah, no01:28
Jordan_Unavatwo: No, there is a problem. It's just a problem that existed before you started doing anything with gparted.01:28

TheMusicGuynormally I am aksed for the password every time I open a new terminal window and use sudo/gksudo. In this case, however, all newly-opened terminal windows and dekstop icons with gksudo in them, etc, all act as if I had already entered the password.01:30
Jordan_UTheMusicGuy: That's normal for a few minutes after you have antered your password.01:31
TheMusicGuyCould this be caused by having a sudo'd command running from one of the text ttys?01:31
TheMusicGuyJordan_U, not for me it isn't. This has never happened before.01:32

bob__A|i3N: there are Linux manuals (pdf) out there - I downloaded one02:50

Cody3290How would I format the drive then? Is there an option to format it or do I just delete all the partitions?02:55
DasEijnbptst: for instance to a textfile for better readability: ls -lar ~/Desktop  > ~/Desktop/myDesk.txt02:55
bazhangCody3290, mount the partitions then delete them02:55
Cody3290do I delete the partition that has "filesystem Extended" and "linux-swap" as well?02:56
nit-witfisix, Not sure why it is not working try purging it then reinstalling, the command should work, There is a icon for it in accessories.02:56
Cody3290They have little keys next to them.02:56
bazhangCody3290, yes02:56
jnbptstDasEi: so in the end it's still a kind of manual search; no way to automatically merge similarly-named folders into a consolidated folder?02:56
Cody3290bazhang: When I press delete on them, nothing happens02:57
Sega_dudeIs it safe for me to update Wubi 10.04 to 10.10 using the update manager?02:57
DasEijnbptst: you can pipe, sort , search append, truncate, whatever.. man locate,find,sort...02:57
bazhangCody3290, be sure they are mounted; you really are better off doing this with the windows installer disk02:57
bazhangSega_dude, sure02:58
jt13can anyone tell me how to set up multiple machines (3) all running 10.10 to automatically share all multi media files? Also, one of the machines is set up as dual boot with only a 20 gig partition for the operating systems and a ntfs partition containing all the media files i.e movies and music.02:58
fisixhey nit-wit , it doesn't work through Applications > accessories02:58
Cody3290How do I mount them?02:58
bazhangjt13, nfs share?02:58
fisixnit-wit, how do i purge?02:58
Sega_dudek thanks bazhang02:58
Cody3290WinXP only lets me do partitions, it doesn't let me choose to format the entire disk02:58
jt13bazhang, ??02:58
bazhangjt13, network file shares?02:58
=== jason is now known as CaptainKewll
bazhangjt13, or did you want a streaming media server like mediatomb et al02:59
DasEijnbptst: you ask to far in the wild, mv lets you move within subdirs, but carefull with similar named ones without sorting beforehand02:59
jt13bazhang, yes i just want to share over the network02:59
nit-witfisix, sudo apt-get purge packagename02:59
jnbptstDasEi: sorry I'm not sure I understand clearly02:59
jt13maybe it will help if i explain what i am trying to do bazhang02:59
bazhangjt13, I thought you wanted to share all media ie a streaming server03:00
jnbptstDasEi: basically it's all raw data, nothing linked to programs, so there wouldn't be any harm force-merging everything03:00
fisixnit-wit, i'm gonna follow the purge by sudo apt-get install screenlets. sound good for trial #2?03:00
blakbirdhi all03:00
jnbptstDasEi: just music, photos etc03:00
nit-witfisix, may have just been a borked download.03:01
jt13bazhang,  I have three machines all running 10.10. My main machine is connected to my 50" tv and it has a 280 gig ntfs partition containing alot of movies. I would like to set it up so that all computers on my wireless network can access these files as well as the media files on each other03:01
UbuntuDavewhats the wine channel anyone know?03:02
blakbirdbig stuff huh03:02
bazhangUbuntuDave, #winehq03:02
DasEijnbptst: so first run fdupes on the whole original dir, rename if needed and then rsyng it all together03:02
fisixnit-wit, i don't think so, this is the 3rd time i've tried uninstalling/reinstalling03:02
bob__jt13: movies copy to ubuntu easily -no converting03:03
Cody3290Is there something for linux like Belarc Advisor?03:03
bazhangCody3290, what does that do03:04
jt13bob__ I am aware of this. I am trying to setup network file sharing so all the computers can see the movies and music that are on one another03:04
Cody3290Audits your PC and gives a report of all the hardware you have03:04
Cody3290So in case WinXP PnP misses some stuff you can manually download drivers and stuff based on what hte report says vs. what your device manager says03:05

bazhangAnubArack, ask a n actual question please04:10
nit-witWeThePeople, Lubuntu is good but with that small of a cpu and ram I would be using puppy or another small distro04:10
nit-witWeThePeople, your choice though, if you have some other area to run another OS to try out.04:11
AnubArackbazhang, don't get snotty with me kid, i'm in a very bad mood. And learn some semantics, that was an actual question04:12
sacarlsonA|i3N: I wonder if it just needs a little data moving over time.  keep alive normaly just sends a ping every 2 minits.  I guess you could try a script that pings google.com every 60 secounds and see if you see any improvments04:12
bazhangAnubArack, just polling wont get  a response, please ask an actual issue needs to be resolved question04:12
bittyx-laptopHi all, little question! I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop. Before i go to sleep i always go to System->Preferences->Power Management, and select "Put display to sleep after" 0:01 (ie. to turn my display off after a minute). Then when I wake up, and wake the display as well, I set it back to 1:00 (1 hour). Is there a better way to do this? E.g. a keyboard shortcut that puts my display to sleep instantly.04:13
EnigmaticCoderI'm trying to cross compile Pioneers to Windows XP and Mac OSX. Does anyone know how to do this given the source code, a configure script, and make?04:13
A|i3Nsacarlson - OK I am a novice, gotta tell me how to do this or send me a faq or something LOL04:13
jribbittyx-laptop: I use: sleep 2; xset dpms force off04:13
sacarlsonA|i3N: oh I guess you don't need a script it's builtin to ping with    ping -i 2 google.com  it will ping google every 2 secounds04:13
doug9Does the internal wireless override the ethernet input of a radio card?04:14
Semitonesbittyx-laptop, yes! there is. open up keyboard shortcuts, and you can set your own :) (I have mine set to ctrl alt . )04:14
A|i3Noh ok thank you sacarlson hehe that sounds like a solution04:14
Semitonesbittyx-laptop, oh yeah -- you have to make a custom shortcut -- use the command jrib suggested04:14

A|i3NYoinx yea it's metroPCS04:16
Semitonesbittyx-laptop, you can do it from terminal, which would be easiest. But in keyboard shortcuts you can make custom shortcuts, and that's what I did :)04:16

fizy[laptop]i need yalls opinion. am i going to far with linux if i SSH'ed into someones ipod touch at school today, got into the root account, and started fucking the the repository packages, installing things like tortiosehg (which requires mercurial(whichrequires python(none of which are on it by default, nor are they meant to be run on the ios))) before finally typing "apt-get remove cydia" and then losing connection and being un05:35
fizy[laptop]in my defence, im on a linux machine. what else am i gonna do with linux?05:36

fizy[laptop]so yeah is it going too far with the whole hacking thing if i uninstalled cydia and crashed their itouch? i dont think so. i think doing anything less than that is an insult to the name of linux05:38

tohuwI have a home server I ssh to. My DNS (running on the same server, as it happens), broadcasts a different IP for this server internally (namely, its local IP). So, when I ssh to myserver.example.com from the outside, I get the public IP, but from the inside using the same address, I get the local IP. Here's the problem: the outside IP is stored in known_hosts. How do I also add the inside IP to known_hosts, so it doesn't freak out?05:46

BlackWebthe thing is with linux and new version of linux then when they come out with a new version then theres time that you sometimes have to wait for someone to make a driver for the updated version, or you can resort older version such as 10.04 but still searching06:52
BlackWebdunmanifestin go here http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/linux/Legacy/Pages/radeon_linux.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=

ruandoes ubuntu see windows?07:11
dr_Williswin189 You can try just right clicking on a folder, and select share, you have tried that?07:11
win189um if it was that easy i would have07:11
bvierra|lhey all, long time linux user... first time kubuntu user... first of all, can I ask questions about kubuntu in here?07:11
dr_Williswin189 it is that easy for my lan normally.07:11
rwwbvierra|l: here or #kubuntu07:11
dr_Willissometimes the right click share thing. does not install the samba servifes properl;y however.07:11
bvierra|lahh ok cool thanks :) dont really have any questions yet, just figure that I will07:11
AkshayWhat next??07:11
ruanAkshay: if you can't change to the resolution yet, reboot07:12
visual1cekillall gnome-panel works perfectly07:12
ruanAkshay: if installation was successful07:12
dr_Williswin189 you coud edit /etc/samba/smb.conf and be sure the workgroups are correct also.  and try manualy entering the share paths.  \\serverip.number\sharename07:12
Akshayok, be right back sfter reboot.07:12
win189ok if i muked up the install07:13
win189can i just uninstall and reinstall07:13
win189will it clear all the settings07:13
ruanwin189: i think it might keep settings. i remember seeing folders of things i uninstalled07:14
dr_Williswin189 depends on what you mesed up.  what have you done  so far?  things are almost alwyas fixable...07:14
dr_Williswhen in doubt backup system configs you are editing.07:14
Akshayruan: No change, still can't find 1152x86407:15
win189i think i messed up the config07:16
ruanwell the drivers were released in 200407:16
dr_Williswin189 what did you change in the config exactly?  I nomrally only need to edit a few lines if the smb.conf file.07:16

rohitvvvI went for an option to install ubuntu inside windows using wubi. After a few minutes it starts downloading the iso from the internet. I already have the iso downloaded.?07:26
ruanAkshay: Download from: (change server)07:26
dr_Willisrowitvv you really sure you want to be using wubi? Most people hate it.  I think you need the iso in th eproper location. and it will see it.,07:27
dr_Willisoops that was for askhakshay i think,,...07:27
rohitvvvI extracted the contents of the iso using winrar07:27
rohitvvvand then I had wubi inside it.07:27
ruandr_Willis: it wasn't, lol07:27

ruanAkshay: did you run sudo apt-get update?07:28
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)07:28
dr_Willisim on my android - by the timne i answer.. the question has scrolled off the top of the screen07:28
win189rww is there a general chat can07:29
win189that ubuntu admin has setup07:30
rohitvvv<dr_Willis> Thanks for the hint. It worked. wubi has to be in the directory where iso resides. It works :)07:30
ruanAkshay: ok, install 915resolution instead07:30
dr_Willisi relly hate wubi...07:30
rwwwin189: #ubuntu-offtopic (and read the /topic when you go there)07:30
rohitvvv<Dr_Willis> why so?07:30
win189k rww ty07:30
dr_Willisto many issues rohitvv. You may learn to hate it also.07:31
dr_WillisI would rather run in virtualbox then use wubi07:31
rwwthis ^07:31
rohitvvv<dr_Willis> But virtual box would run much slower07:31
dr_Willisbut its more relieable...07:32
Strykerwhy don't u use grub?07:32
jukwubi helps spreading the word anyway...07:32
dr_Willisive seen way way way to many 'wubi broke on me' questions in here07:32
rohitvvv<Stryker> I have a windows 7 installation. Need to get ubuntu installed. Wubi seemed to be a easier option.07:33
dr_Willisvirtualbos is the easiest option.. :)07:33

geoffmccrohitvvv: dual booting win7 and ubuntu is a breeze07:33
Akshayruan:can't find it in Synaptic Package Manager07:34
Strykerwhy not just partition, and use grub?07:34
dr_WillisI advise using caution and paranoia backups. when using wubi.07:34
dr_WillisI have seen windows 7 installs that use 4 primary partitions.. that can make installing ubuntu normally a big hassle.07:34
ruan4 partitions?07:35
PotatoAt last i got my alpine working for me. Whatever be the case somebody should have responded whether you knew or not.07:35
dr_WillisYes - i have seen win7 Installs using 4 Primary partitions.07:35
geoffmccdr_Willis: good point07:35
PotatoAnyways thank you guys!07:35
Strykerso rohitvvv has the primaries taken up? arent logical partitions compatible with linux unlike unix07:35
rohitvvv<stryker> yes they are taken up07:36
rohitvvv<stryker> I have ubuntu installed now using wubi in one of the logical partitions.07:36
Akshayruan:Pls help me out.07:36
ruanAkshay: im confused as well :/07:36
Strykeri think it would be possible to create a logical partition and boot it with grub07:36
lightait is Stryker07:37
Stryker!logical partition07:37
Strykeri tried07:37
rohitvvv<stryker> yes07:37
lightawante to create some using windows or ubuntu ?07:37
dr_WillisHmm.. wubi installs to a file. no tits own partition07:37
ubottugparted is a !GTK/!Gnome !GUI partitioning program. Type « sudo apt-get install gparted » in a console to install it - A GParted "live" CD is available at http://gparted.sourceforge.net/livecd.php07:37
Akshayruan:looking at this guide07:37
ruanyeh wubi installs to a .disk file07:38
Strykermany logical partitions can be made, unlike primaries07:38
rohitvvvOkay guys thanks for the help will get back in touch from ubuntu. May be installing grub from ubuntu would be easy.07:38
lightausing it at application isn't the same as "real"07:39
rohitvvv<Stryker> Yes07:39
Strykeri don't think u wanna use grub for a wubi install07:39
Strykerrohitvvv, that wouldn't make sense07:39
dr_Williswubi does use grub. windpows chainloads it i think.07:39
dr_Willisfrom what little ive used wubi.. :)07:39
rohitvvv<Stryker> Okay.07:39
ruani tried a wubi install but it didnt boot, so i made a livecd07:40
Strykerrohitvvv, it is bulky, and hard to undo if you don't have a fresh install of real ubuntu07:40
rohitvvv<Stryker> The issue is making a bootable pendrive has being a problem. It does not boot. Hence I went in for wubi.07:40
Strykerhave u tried using unetbootin?07:41
rohitvvv<Stryker> I would love to go for a real ubuntu install. But the pendrive won't boot for reasons.  Yes I have tried unetbootin07:41
Strykertry an ubuntu server install07:41
rohitvvv<Stryker> It drops at some prompt and says the kernel is missing07:41
icerootrohitvvv: some pendrives cant boot because of the logic how the data is randomly written to the pendrive, so the bootsector is moved on some sticks07:41
dr_Willistheres OTHER installer apps then Unetbootin..07:42
rohitvvv<iceroot> any work around07:42
dr_Willispendrivelinux has info on proberly 5+ others07:42
icerootrohitvvv: hm your issue is not because of the random write07:42
Strykerwhat do you even mean iceroot ?07:42
rohitvvv<dr_Willis> shall I download one app like unetbootin from pendrivelinux07:43
icerootStryker: pendrives are writting data randomly so you dont write the data alaways at the same place, bad pendrives are also writing the boot-sector randomly at some place on the stick07:43
Strykeri have myself made a previously uninstallible flavour work on a pendrive07:43
dr_Willisdownload and try them er.r.. ALL.. :) its not like they cost $$$07:43
Akshayruan:Did you find any solution07:43
icerootStryker: its not often but some pendrives around there are not bootable07:43
dr_WillisYou can always try making your own grub2 booting iso file pendrive07:43
Strykericeroot, that is a filesystem, and program error07:44
rohitvvv<dr_Willis> Sure I will try one. Fingers crossed.07:44
dr_Willisive had old pendrives now work wiht some old machines..07:44
dr_Willisnot much issues with new ones.07:44
Strykerthat is a point, but grub2 can boot from pendrive like dr_Willis said07:45
=== Auriel_ is now known as Auriel
ruanAkshay: not yet07:45
dr_Willisyou could even boot a cd, and do a normal install to a pendrive.07:46
Strykeryou could boot an iso with virtualbox, and install the system onto the pendrive07:46
rohitvvv<Stryker> That's really a long cut.07:47

tohuwoh, since it's a daemon and all... thanks iceroot -.-07:57
lifestreamiceroot: yes iceroot, I found a script on the web to replace, but it scanned through lots of movies and a 20gb music collection  T_T  Also, I needed to change this string: /home/eris/ to /home/wish  and instead, I got /home/eris//   <- double slash07:57

icerootBezNalogov: a kernel-update?09:21
icerootBezNalogov: is "sudo ifconfig -a" showing eth0?09:21
bullgardarturs: This may be another error. You probably can fix that by installing a cyrillic font. (But I think that this is secondary in importance to the first rported error message.)09:22
BezNalogovI did the normal security updates, the kernel was upgraded to 2.6.35-27-generic, but also with the old kernel the network card doesn't work09:22
BezNalogovwith sudo ifconfig -a the card doesn't show up either09:23
icerootBezNalogov: so the card never worked with 10.10?09:24
artursbullgard: by the way, how can I install cyrillic fonts?09:24
BezNalogovYes it did09:24
BezNalogovI use 10.10 for a while already09:24

jauHello ubuntu friends. I have 3 virtual server. I'm located in Finland, i think the servers are located in Germany. recommendations to timezone settings? UTC, Europe/Berlin? what? now one has UTC, two others Europe/Berlin, and i'm confused ;)09:27
bullgardarturs: http://winlinmac.ath.cx/~arturs/errors/ gets me: "Not found".09:27
icerootjau: what about using YOUR timezone09:28
Tm_Tjau: whatever suits you best09:28
CaleThe manpage for 'service' says that it runs sysv init scripts, but taking a look at the source for it in Ubuntu 10.10 reveals that before it does that, it also checks for upstart configurations.09:28
silv3r_m00nis there any docking application for ubuntu 9.10 , that can be installed from synaptic ?09:28
Cale(and uses those if available)09:28
inad922Is there anyone here who runs boxee on ubuntu and managed to make it work flawlessly?09:28
icerootCale: but the init-scripts dont check if upstart is used09:28
DiverdudeI hve asked this question several times and nobody answers. It is very frustrating. suddenty my packet manager does not work any longer, it sends me this error message: An unresolvable problem occurred while initializing the package information.Please report this bug against the 'update-manager' package and include the following error message:'E:Dynamic MMap ran out of room. Please increase the size of APT::Cache-Limit. Current value: 251609:29
Diverdude5824. (man 5 apt.conf), E:Error occurred while processing less (NewFileVer1), E:Problem with MergeList /var/lib/dpkg/status, E:The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.'  How do i solve this?09:29
icerootCale: seen on sudo /etc/init.d/ssh stop09:29
CaleIt looks in /etc/init/${SERVICE}.conf and if that exists it won't run the init script09:29
artursbullgard: now its ready :)09:29
icerootllutz_: luckily it takes years until debian is using new technologies :)09:29
jauiceroot: thinking of setting the /etc/timezone to something usable to me... the geolocation of the server confuses me, all servers have ntpdate in use, but i'm thinking of multiuser scenario, so any user could set their own09:29
CaleOr at least, it won't run it directly.09:29
llutz_iceroot: let's hope that toy story has enough characters left...09:30
kuribasBash completion just stopped working after I installed some packages.09:30
icerootllutz_: :)09:30
CaleIt executes a command whose name is the same as the action (except in the case of force-reload, apparently), with the service's name and options passed as args.09:30
jauiceroot: so setting the server to UTC, and in my profile my own possible?09:30
ruanDiverdude: increase apt cache-limit? i dunno how though09:30
CaleSo if you know that it's an upstart task apparently you could just use start ssh / stop ssh09:30

Diverduderuan, but i have no idea how09:31

Diverduderuan, where?09:34
artursbullgard: but did not change aything.. it just stops working09:34
bullgardarturs: This is not enough. You will need to reconfigure your graphics system. Google for the precise error message and your computer type. I am sure other had the same problem before and a solution.09:34
milamberDiverdude: did you try sudo apt-get clean?09:35
Diverduderuan, have /etc/apt/apt.conf.d but have many files there09:35

Diverdudemilamber, its stilol not working :(10:09
arandhayz: 5GB absolute minimum, 10GB if you plan on getting a fair amount of applications, 20GB if you want to be sure 20GB+ If you intend to store data (music, video, isos, virtual machines) on the partition as well.10:09
Diverdudemilamber, i set it to 10MB, did update and restarted10:09

Diverdudemilamber, is it possible somehow to see how much cache size is actually needed ? Instead of just guessing10:14
hayzred2kic: i think that would be fine...coz most of the things we're doing where office like encoding reports and printing no games and other extra installation...10:15
arandhayz: Although I guess that you may be able to do resizing at a later time provided the /home and / partions are adjacent. ...or you could use lvm...10:15

linux_userhayz, there is no way possible11:02
dr_Willishayz it shouldent11:02
dr_Willisi would suggest just reformating the usb.11:02
dr_Willisand use some live antivirus cd on the windows box.11:02

roger_hayz, if you're worried about a virus(which i doubt you have), you could always install and run clamtk. it's anti-virus for linux11:04
dr_WillisYou can install a Live-cd typs setup to ausb flash drive. or ou can do a normal full install.11:04
dr_Willislinux_user  you have a save file that could be full. or the actual flash drive may be getting full.11:05

jriboneliner: well the answer to your question depends on what exactly you want to do.  I can imagine at least 3 different things: (1) how to temporarily add a directory to my path (2) how to permanently add a directory to my path and (3) how to permanently add a directory to every user's path14:08
_cronus_oneliner, it won't overwrite entries since what it does is it appends the directory to the path ($PATH is the original path value), but it won't survive reboot or be shared by shell sessions14:08

phixwhy does ubuntu use an older kernel than debian?14:10

erUSULhiexpo: a single warning ( not error ) that probably will go away in a day or two has made ubuntu *useless* for you ? ¬.¬15:23

black_hello, need help with the backtrack in ubuntu please got the repo and gpg keys15:24
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 Edition15:24
bazhangblack_, use the backtrack channel not here15:24
Jonta_Still might be applicable for Ubuntu as well though15:25
Jonta_Not necessarily BT-specific15:25
bazhangnot supported here15:25

guestbut from bash15:26
_cronus_hiexpo, it shouldn't15:26
jnbptst_cronus_: that formula wouldn't work for names that are similar because of accents right?15:26
guestive added a startup script that wont allow me to load gnome15:26
guestso i need the actual script locations15:26
jnbptst_cronus_: it wouldn't identify an e from an é or a è?15:26

panfistmy computer won't boot into newer kernel versions. the latest version of ubuntu that it boots into is 9.10, but if i upgrade that, it does not work. 10.04 or 10.10 live cds do not work, either15:32
bhaveshsearched everywhere.. the results are mostly useless15:32
Yoinxhiexpo,  just wait a little while. Every search I do for your problem says it clears up.15:32
panfistbasically if i install from 9.10 and always choose the oldest kernel version from grub, it works15:33
