cal_gdm just keeps cycling back to the login prompt after entering my user/pass .. how do i track down this problem any suggestions?? thanks!!00:02
W3ird_N3rdskxx, is it very new? (2010 or newer) it might not be supported yet, or you may need backports. Is it old? check all the printer settings, black/white feeder etc00:03
gratnam11but don't i have to do supdo aptitude install postfix first00:03
jribcal_: create a new user and see if it happens there00:03

W3ird_N3rdliminal, you crashed it that quickly?00:04
liminalno that was just on startup.. it hasnt crashed00:04
testingW3ird_N3rd: uhm ... I dont know if that is possible. =)00:04
W3ird_N3rdwhy not?00:05
W3ird_N3rdno money? rob a bank!00:05
cal_jrib: nope, that worked. how do i get my original account working though? lol00:05
testingW3ird_N3rd: No it is maxed out already00:05
skxxW3ird_N3rd: it's fresh out of the box, but it seems to be supported from what i've hear00:05
W3ird_N3rdtesting, how much you got?00:05
W3ird_N3rdmemory I mean, not money00:05
jribcal_: check ~/.xsession-errors on the problem account00:06
W3ird_N3rdthat shouldn't get maxed out so quickly. You run heavy apps?00:06
testingbrowser and qt creator00:06

W3ird_N3rdSeppoz, try checkinstall00:07
W3ird_N3rdthere are many ways00:07
jrib!packaging | Seppoz00:07
ubottuSeppoz: The packaging guide is at http://wiki.ubuntu.com/PackagingGuide - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment/NewPackages for information on getting a package integrated into Ubuntu - Other developer resources are at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuDevelopment - See also !backports00:07
W3ird_N3rd^^ that's more informative00:08
jahmanm huse are you their00:08
W3ird_N3rdtesting, generally, if you have a low-spec machine you can consider installing xubuntu or lubuntu, but that's not the case here. If you run memoryhoggers, wel.. you just need enough memory00:08
testing2GB is nothing these days00:08
W3ird_N3rdnot much you can do about that00:08
W3ird_N3rdyou could get a RAM-drive and put your swap on that, but you're probably better off getting a new mainboard that supports more memory00:09
tvonIs the notify-osd bubble supposed to go blurry when I hover over it with the mouse?00:09
jribtvon: it's supposed to get out of your way00:09
W3ird_N3rdtesting, I still run Lubuntu on a laptop that has 384MB memory. I even have a laptop running Ubuntu on 384MB, but that's sluggish when you open a webpage or 200:09
cal_jrib: thanks man! that file had what i needed. problem solved!00:10
testingI need it till kill off some program or something to free up memory. Not just stalling everything.00:10
tvonjrib: would going blurry be it's way of getting out of my way?00:10
jribtvon: hmm, I don't know.  I haven't used standard gnome in a while.  For me it just disappears but I'm not using compiz and all that fancy stuff00:10
PolahW3ird_N3rd: Surely if you're putting the swap on a RAM disk then it's pointless to have it?00:10
tvonjrib: okay, thanks00:10
testingW3ird_N3rd: how is that possible gcc uses 300MB+ whenever i compile00:10
W3ird_N3rdPolah, why?00:11
jribtvon: you can ask the channel again about what behavior is expected on standard gnome.  Surely, someone can tell you :)00:11
PolahW3ird_n3rd: It'd be a part of the RAM itself and thus putting a swap there would be unecessary since it would be used anyway00:12
testingand the browser easily takes 800MB00:12
W3ird_N3rdI see what you mean but I meant a "disk" that has DIMM slots and a SATA connector00:12
W3ird_N3rdit's a different "ramdisk"00:12
W3ird_N3rdputting swap in your memory would indeed be pointless00:12
PolahWell then why not just put it on a normal hard drive? The maximum transfer speed would still be the same00:13
W3ird_N3rdslow random access00:13
PolahI suppose00:14
=== usar is now known as pyus
W3ird_N3rdPolah, besides, you could have something that has DIMM slots and a PCIe connector00:14
W3ird_N3rdtesting, browser taking 800MB is pretty normal if you have some tabs open00:15
testingyeah i know00:15
testingand it is horrible00:15
W3ird_N3rdbut in the end you have to make a choice: buy more memory (and possibly new mainboard), install lighter software (maybe less features) or use less applications at the same time00:16
W3ird_N3rdyou can't have it all00:16
testingsomeone should make a browser which focuses on low memory consumption instead of speed speed speed00:16
UbuntuDaveanyone got G13 to work correctly yet? i cant get G15daemon to start...00:16
liminalokay made it crash00:17
W3ird_N3rdchromium in my experience is pretty fast on a low-memory laptop00:17
liminalnothing came up in the terminal00:17
W3ird_N3rdso maybe install chromium, testing?00:17
testingi would like the operating system to do something smart instead ... i dont want the computer to lock up ... if it is slow that is ok ...00:17
drctesting: Midori?00:17
W3ird_N3rdit locks up?00:17
W3ird_N3rdtesting, do you have a swap partition that's big enough?00:17
RubenAlonzodoes anyone know how to make Pidgin automatically come to this channel please? At the moment when in start it, i have to fish around for it.00:18
testingI dont have a swap partition.00:18
W3ird_N3rdwell there's your problem!00:18
xanguaRubenAlonzo: add it to your buddy list and put it to autojoin00:19
testingwhy would a swap partition solve this problem?00:19
W3ird_N3rdswap partition is used to put stuff on the hard drive that would otherwise go into memory, when the system runs out of memory00:19
RubenAlonzothank you, xangua00:19
W3ird_N3rdif you don't have a swap partition and the computer runs out of memory, it crashes00:19
testingehhh? no00:19
UbuntuDaveanyone tell me the logitech channel?00:19
Random832W3ird_N3rd: no, it starts randomly killing processes00:20
liminalW3ird_N3rd, i have both chrome and chromium00:20
liminalthey both crash.. does does FF00:20
Random832probably starting with your web browser and X, since IIRC it targets the ones with the most memory00:20
W3ird_N3rdRandom832, not my experience. I've been rebooting a laptop several times after opening too many webpages when I forgot to set up swap00:20
Random832anyway you can get the same effect from running out of swap00:20
testingif it runs out of memory, it should start telling the applications that there is no more memory00:20
Random832W3ird_N3rd: turn overcommit off00:20
W3ird_N3rdaltough Random832, I have to admit that was an old Ubuntu00:20
W3ird_N3rdmight be different now00:20
Random832testing: the problem is the way the fork() function works00:21
Random832it doesn't know for sure that a program is going to _actually use_ memory that's copy-on-write00:21
Random832so there's no explicit allocation action in those cases00:21
Random832windows doesn't have this problem because it doesn't have fork00:21
testingRandom832: yeah, it is the same way with malloc i think00:22
RubenAlonzois 2 gigs of ram sufficient for ubuntu 10.0 netbook? i currently have 1 gig and everything works but its my first linux distro computer and i want to have the best experience possible.00:22
Random832you create a process and specify the new exe for th process all as one action00:22
W3ird_N3rdRandom832, I've reinstalled that laptop ages ago so I don't have the problem anymore. Wouldn't want it to kill my browser and X anyway00:22
testingit gives the appklication a pointer but doesnt allocate it until the app actually writes to it00:22
Random832W3ird_N3rd: i nver said it was a good thing00:22
Random832but it still depends on how much memory you have00:22
testingit is a bad system00:22
fisch246how do you upgrade to a newer version of grub?00:22
Random832i mean, it's not like having swap will save you if you run out of swap00:22
Random8321GBram+1GBswap isn't better than 2GBram00:22
RubenAlonzoRandom,  i currently only have 1 gig but my little netbook is upgradable to 2 gigs max.00:23
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, 2GB is enough for web browsing/mail/IM00:23
W3ird_N3rdmay be low for image-editing, video-editing and gaming00:23
RubenAlonzothank you W3ird00:23
DiamondciteRubenAlonzo: Depends on what you run with it.. I stared out with 1GB, but upgraded to 1.5GB and I find that to be more than enough.00:23
soreauIs there a way to have a root gnome-terminal start when logging in? I tried putting gnome-terminal in /etc/rc.local but it start it as user00:23
testing2Gb with ubuntu is unusable00:23
PolahW3ird_N3rd: For average gaming 2Gb is generally fine, especially with a swap of the same size.00:23
testingwhatever you are running00:23
W3ird_N3rdPolah, agree, depends on your games00:24
testingperhaps pine and lynx ...00:24
testingbut i have my doubts00:24
DiamondciteW3ird_N3rd: With 1.5GB... Web-browsing, flash video, IM, OpenOffice Spreadsheets, VirtualBox VM, Comics reading, video.00:24
RubenAlonzoDiamond, i have a tiny eMachines em250 computer i use just for surfing and watching videos on, but i did order a Crucial 2 gig stick to max it out, it has 250 gig hdd00:24
Photocopy#midori seems inactive...00:25
RubenAlonzoyou know for my forums stuff and the like is what i use it for since the wife is always on FarmVille00:25
testingcrashed my work computer the other day ... 4 GB ram and 8 GB swap ... it ran out of memory ... basically locked up the same way my laptop does not ... this is a reoccurring problem00:25
Photocopyhow can I make midori my default broser?00:25
DiamondciteRubenAlonzo: Generally I don't feel any pain of memory unless I've been running for over a month without rebooting.00:25
testingdoes now00:25
Photocopymidori itself doesnt seem to offer me the option00:25
UbuntuDavedoes crossover have a irc channel?00:26
Diamondcitetesting: What you do with your system matters alot.. querying an entire DB to put out a PHP page takes alot of memory :)00:26

peeps[lappy]i have some text files containing raw SMTP email messages, what would i use to extract attachments from these?00:26
Random832Photocopy: i think there's a default browser setting in system preferences.. don't know, haven't used ubuntu gui in a while00:26
W3ird_N3rdDiamondcite, I run plenty of stuff on low-memory machines, but RubenAlonzo wanted to have the best experience so I was careful in my advice ;)00:26
Photocopythank you xangua00:26
testingit shouldnt lock up in oom situations!!!!!00:26
DiamondciteRubenAlonzo: Okay.. what do you intend to do with your machine? Just to see if it's workable :)00:26
W3ird_N3rdyou can easily do webbrowsing/mail/IM on 512MB but I don't recommend that when somebody asks for "the best experience"00:27
Diamondcite(An Atom N270 can only handle so much before it's out of CPU power instead of memory)00:27
hihihi100does anybody here use OpenBVE?00:27
BajKWhich Intel processor do I need to have the Intel GMA X4500 graphics adqapter on board? is it included with the processor (core i5 i think will have it?) or the mainboard?00:27
RubenAlonzoso far its been a flawless experience, everything works as planned, only thing i cant seem to get recognized is the built in SD Card reader. Also is an external hd supported in Ubuntu? i saw some at bestbuy like the WD Passport elite 500gig ones i was wanting but sure if it works00:27
Death_irc.freenode.org -> #gentoo00:27
=== jack is now known as Guest94848
testingDeath_: ?00:27
BajKok the core i3-540 has dhe gma x450000:28
DiamondciteRubenAlonzo: I can't answer on things like the WD passport.. I tend to buy external USB Harddrive docks and use physical hard drives.00:28
drcRubenAlonzo: Have one of those (WD P 500gig HHD) too, works fine out of the box00:28
W3ird_N3rdtesting, it doesn't matter: if you run out of memory and swap your system is either going to lock up or randomly kill processes, you don't want either00:28
p_resW3ird_N3rd: I used 512MB for years with Ubuntu with no issues.00:28
RubenAlonzoDiamond, any idea how to format usb drives in ubuntu please?00:28
DiamondciteRubenAlonzo: I use gparted for that purpose00:29
testingW3ird_N3rd: i would want the latter ...00:29
jack_^RubenAlonzo, ? what're you trying to do? create a new filesystem?00:29
RubenAlonzothank you Diamond00:29
W3ird_N3rdp_res, I still use Ubuntu on a 384MB laptop with no issues, other than being slow. Lubuntu is fine on 384MB though00:29
RubenAlonzojack, no i wanted to buy an external usb drive but not sure if it would be recognized in ubuntu00:29
testingas it gives you at least some hope of recovery ...00:29
AnubArackhow can i stop a [sudo] password request (until now i just entered wrong one 3 times, there must be a better way)00:29
=== Guest18989 is now known as DarkDevil
DiamondciteAnubArack: ctrl+c00:29
p_resW3ird_N3rd: I wouldn't use it with anything below 512. Not with GNOME desktop anyway.00:30
W3ird_N3rdtesting, why don't you just set up a swap partition so it does't lock up in the first place?00:30
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest66309
W3ird_N3rdp_res, agree, Ubuntu on 384MB is indeed slow, but Lubuntu (lxde, not gnome) is pretty ok00:30
bob__840I have redone a 2.1G stick w/ ext4: remove exist part then repart then format00:30
RubenAlonzodoes anyone know when the next release of ubuntu is out? i have 10.10 but i really wish i could hide the side dock on the left as i have a tiny screen00:30
p_resW3ird_N3rd: Yeah I've used LXDE in the past. It's a nice alternative but not for me. ;-)00:30
W3ird_N3rdBut I'm still running ubuntu (with gnome) on a 384MB laptop because I can't upgrade it further and am too lazy for a reinstall00:31

RubenAlonzoi heard the next update will allow the side dock to be moved or hidden. also HOW do i update Ubuntu? do i have to do a clean install of every new version released or is there a way to simply click an application to update current 10.10?00:33
W3ird_N3rdaroman, remove them in synaptic?00:33

W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, always works flawlessly00:38
RubenAlonzoi meansied a thumbdrive00:38
RubenAlonzoi meant besides a thumbdrive, sorry00:39
p_resRubenAlonzo: I use a 1TB Seagate external usb.00:39
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, a harddrive?00:39
RubenAlonzop_res, did you have to somehow format it or was it recognized immediately?00:39
W3ird_N3rdalso no problem. On a laptop, you might have trouble if your USB doesn't supply enough power for the harddrive to work00:39
p_resRubenAlonzo: At first plug in I had to reboot once.00:40
RubenAlonzoyes w3ird like a western digital 500 gig usb drive00:40
RubenAlonzoah ok, thank you p_res00:40
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, did you buy it as an external drive? Or did you put a drive in an external case00:40
p_resRubenAlonzo: It works formatted as both ntfs and ext3/4.00:40
DiamondciteFor me after changing the format of a drive, I had to disconnect and reconnect it00:40
fisch246this is the last thing i need to do and my computer is about as secure as it can get...00:41
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, if your drive isn't formatted yet, you need to format it first.00:41
W3ird_N3rdan external harddrive off the shelf might be pre-formatted00:41
RubenAlonzoW3ird, i have not bought it yet, i was going to but got cold feet somehow at the last minute because i thought it might not get recognized like my built in card reader, although the thumbdrive gets recognized easily, so maybe i was being over-cautious00:41
RubenAlonzoi'm still new to ubuntu00:42
p_resW3ird_N3rd: I think they're all formatted to ntfs by default these days.00:42
RubenAlonzoand ubuntu is ntfs?00:42
p_resRubenAlonzo: Use the disk utility.00:42
W3ird_N3rdp_res, yeah, that's less than ideal, but it'll still work using ntfs3g00:42
gundasHi all, is there is a suggested method to remove a specific node in an XML file which is over 300mb in size? Platform is Ubuntu Server.00:42
RubenAlonzothanks all00:42
p_resW3ird_N3rd: Yeah I know. But I use Windows a lot still, but I have had mine formatted to ext4 once before.00:43
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, if you also need to access the drive on a windows machine, you probably want it to be NTFS-formatted00:43
p_resRubenAlonzo: ;-)00:43
wonderfulhello everyone! i have a question:  if i have a ton of zipped files, how do i extract them all into the same directory?  instead of unzipping one by one and having a new directory for each zip file?00:43
wonderfullooking for a terminal command00:43
RubenAlonzoroger that, will do W3ird.  i am highly HIGHLY skilled in windows, but never had a linux distro and only been using it so far for a couple days after install from pendrive00:44
=== raul1979 is now known as raulin1979
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, if you want the drive NTFS-formatted (and if it isn't out of the box), it's best to format it on Windows00:45
W3ird_N3rdI'm not even sure if you can NTFS-format a drive on Ubuntu at all00:45
p_reswonderful: You just need to use 7z and have all the zip files in the same directory and use *.zip and extract them all to the same output directory.00:46
omacneilyes you can format a drive as NTFS on ubuntu00:46
RubenAlonzowell i was wanting the best option to format in, either fat32 or ntfs for use on my little netbook with ubuntu00:46
p_resRubenAlonzo: Don't use fat32.00:46
RubenAlonzoroger that. NTFS it is! thanks00:47
omacneilsudo aptitude install ntfs-3g00:47
p_resomacneil: It should be installed by default anyway.00:47
W3ird_N3rdRubenAlonzo, don't use fat32, always trouble with partitions >32GB. The best options for your netbook would be ext4, but you won't be able to read it on Windows in that case, so NTFS is probably the best choice00:47
happy_ubuntuerhi. what is name of package under "Applications -> Sound & Video -> Sound Recorder"? i'd like to remove it00:47

W3ird_N3rdhappy_ubuntuer, gnome-sound-recorder. But first right-click on "Applications" in the top-left corner of your screen and pick "edit menus"00:49
W3ird_N3rdif you just want to remove it from the menu00:49
W3ird_N3rdactually the application is called gnome-sound-recorder, but that's not the package name..00:50

WarwoltHi, I'm using Ubuntu (latest version) and I'm trying to get JACK server to run, but It won't let me  because "the playback device "hw:0" is already in use. Please stop the application using it and run JACK again". How do I shut down the playback device?00:55
W3ird_N3rdJasonn, mv -r00:56
happy_ubuntuerhiexpo, W3ird_N3rd: thanks00:56
Whisky_I used unetbootin to make a USB drive for Ubuntu and it now says NO OPERATIN SYSTEM FOUND IN PEN DRIVE. REMOVE AND REBOOT. when I try booting via the usb drive.00:56
hiexpohappy_ubuntuer, you can move it or untick it so itdon't show up in it00:56
numpyJasonn, you can use the 'cp' and 'mv' commands. (no quotes)00:57
JasonnW3ird_N3rd: lets say i wanna move the file "file" to the location "end" (Which is in the parent dirctory) Can i do mv -r file /home/server/end00:57
hiexpoWhisky_, did you format it firstand what file system did you format it as00:57
omacneil Whisky_: perhaps you did not succeed in creating a boot key, what files are on the disc when you boot from the HD or CD ?00:57
edbianWarwolt, What programs are you running right now?  Flash in the browser?  Banshee?  Rhythmbox?00:57
W3ird_N3rdJasonn, I was wrong, you don't need -r00:58

edbianfisch246, It just ends an if statement.  http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2010/06/bash-if-statement-examples/01:03
edbianhiexpo, Really?!  Maybe Ubuntu can do something I didn't know.  You're right.01:04
fisch246yea that's what i thought it did... which makes me even more confused...01:04
Yoinxconfused about what fisch?01:04
W3ird_N3rdfisch246, you probably need to share the script so we can be confused about it too. :P01:05
WarwoltWhy is Ubuntu so complicated compared to other OS? :C01:05
W3ird_N3rdWarwolt, it isn't01:05
Yoinxcompared to what other OS?01:05
WarwoltAll I've tried01:05
hiexpoWarwolt, ubuntu is the easiest01:05
YoinxThen you've been trying some weird OS's01:05
edbianWarwolt, It has more choices and therefore more complication.  (Nobody is forcing you to install / configure JACK)01:05
W3ird_N3rdYoinx, do phone OS's count?01:06
* Warwolt is just new and tired of spending over an hour getting a software running only to get the software riddled with problems01:06
YoinxUbuntu is one of the better distro's of linux out there.01:06
edbianWarwolt, Why do you want JACK in the first place?01:06
* Warwolt is going to blame the OS and not is nonadequate knowledge01:06
jack_^damn you. you're blowing up my notifications. :P heh01:06
Warwoltedbian: Because Supercollider uses JACK, apparantly, for its output01:06
YoinxWhat's JACK?01:06
hiexpolol jack01:06
edbianWarwolt, Lemme research Supercollider01:07
WarwoltWhy is "lol Jack"?01:07

silverlightningblue112, very common with ubuntu and laptops01:19
Yoinxjust in two separate spots, scroll up01:19
edbianblue112, flash player is pretty intensive.  Is your fan dirty / blocked?01:19
aeon-ltdblue112: 90% of laptops are like that01:19
System_Default_1blue112: That's normal on new computers.01:19
applejuicebut flash isnt normally that bad..01:19
Yoinxsilver, first link from google. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/gnome-mplayer-error-802571/ for the exact thing you typed01:19

edbianWarwolt, killall jackd01:22

jgcampbell300ok so sudo addgroup "Domain Admins" dosnt work and sudo addgroup 'Domain Admins' dosnt work ...  even tryed sudo addgroup $Domain Admins$01:22
WarwoltYoinx: Because everything I've been trying to do the last couple of hours I'd have gotten done in 20 minutes on XP01:22
edbianWarwolt, That should kill all processes with that name.  If you run ps -e again you'll see they should all be gone.01:22
applejuiceblue112: as a point of reference, my 1 and a half year old laptop hits 50 to 60 degrees C when I'm watching flash vids. But I'm on crunchbang, and crunchbang is lighter than ubuntu01:22
System_Default_1Well, I think Windows XP is good option for graphical design, rendering and gaming.01:22
edbianblue112, Because adobe wrote a lousy version for linux.01:22
applejuiceweird thing is, i see better flash performance on linux than i do on windows 701:23
edbianblue112, Unfortunately it's the most complete version for linux01:23

ajanthakariyawasneil_d ok01:37
Aurigaapplejuice, Isn't CrunchBang based on Ubuntu too?01:37
joe__243yes! plese help!01:37
neil_dajanthakariyawas: are you having trouble with one site or all?01:37
Yoinxsystem > Preferences > startup applications01:38
applejuiceAuriga: it was, but after 9.04, it switched to debian. I like it better with Debian actually, cause it still uses apt but it also lets me make it rolling release01:38
ajanthakariyawasI cant open pages through Firefox01:38
rocketsAnybody try using Unity on a full laptop or desktop? Any good/bad experiences?01:38
[thor]philip_ / joe__243 : is there a support channel in your native language? for example: #ubuntu-cn for chinese, or #ubuntu-ru for russian?01:39
Aurigaapplejuice, I took a brief look at it last year some time as I heard it was lighter than other distros while still keeping functionality... But I didn't last long with it...01:39
ajanthakariyawasNeil_d I cant open pages through firefox01:39
Aurigaapplejuice, have you played with Arch or Slitaz by any chance?01:39
Pranav_rcmas2Can I use an external ntfs partition from Ubuntu to clone repos and build them?01:39
joe__243it does no seem that way i using google translate now i need help i deleted the papperskorgen01:39
System_Default_1*Calling for procedure...01:39
System_Default_1Disconnecting from i-bus01:39
System_Default_1System is going down for halt NOW!01:39
applejuiceAuriga: What stopped you from keeping CB? I wanted to play with Arch, but I never find the time to. ANd I heard it's harder, aha.01:40
HodrI have 3 DNS Zones setup in Ispconfig 3, but it seems that only 1 of the 3 is working01:40
neil_dajanthakariyawas: in the terminal try "ping google.com" and see if you get some lines printing out01:40
[thor]joe__243: /join #ubuntu-se01:40
joe__243tank ju so much how i do it?01:40
ccvvcchow can i see hardware information from terminal01:40
Aurigaapplejuice, I use Ubuntu, & I like it a lot. As to CB I was just playing around with it. I think there was too much Basketball at the time or something, time constraints... Arch is harder, I'm playing with it as we speak...01:41
[thor]joe: type that command exactly as it is in the chat window01:41
edbianccvvcc, lspci01:41
[thor]joe__243: /join #ubuntu-se01:41
visual1cehow can i tell whether an external usb device is usb1 or usb2?01:41
Aurigaapplejuice, Arch doesn't have a WM, you have to install one after install.01:41
joe__243thank ju bye bye  have it good01:41
joe__243 /join #ubuntu-se01:41
applejuiceAuriga: That's awesome. If you can play with arch, you can definitely play with crunchbang01:41
[thor]joe__243: no space at front01:42
joe__243thank ju again bye01:42
Aurigaapplejuice, Yeah I'm sure I could I just didn't put the time into it... Slitaz is proving difficult in a VM too though...01:42
applejuiceAuriga: That's exactly why i didn't try it out yet. it seems like it would take long to set up everything from scratch.01:42
applejuiceAuriga: Never really found out what slitaz was like.01:42
Aurigaapplejuice, Yeah it's in a vm right now, downloading updates, this is my first time with Arch, I like the idea of using a command named Pacman which is why I'm playing with it lol.01:43
=== andrea is now known as Guest27014
Aurigaapplejuice, But it is taking it's time though.01:43
=== Guest27014 is now known as chompiras
applejuiceAuriga: Hahaha, I love your reasoning. :D01:44
illmortal1Does anyone know if the Asus P5Q-E motherboard supports booting off of USB pen drives for Linux? (It does support Windows, that how I got Windows 7 installed onto my machine)01:44
blue112Well, so my CPU is high because of flash :/ ?01:45
blue112can't I say to the fan "cool harder" ?01:45
Aurigaapplejuice, I suggest taking a look at Slitaz also, as there is a major upgrade tonight, so tomorrow there will be a new release bug FREE.01:45
applejuiceblue112: I still feel like theres something else at work though, because a new laptop shouldnt be at 65 degrees evenw ithout flash01:45
applejuiceAuriga: I might just do that if I have the time and can get off my lazy butt, hahaha01:46
Aurigaapplejuice, Go set up a VM!01:46
blue112applejuice, it's at 81 now :/01:46
blue112applejuice, how can I see that ?01:46
ajanthakariyawasneil_d yes I can ping01:46
alecbenzerin the middle of upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 the upgrade seems to have failed somewhere and halted - what's the best course of action for not blowing stuff up?01:47
Yoinxill, if a mobo boots of usb, it boots off USB, it doesnt care what it's booting.01:47
xanguaalecbenzer: then don't upgrade to alpha stuff01:47
applejuiceAuriga: Alright, but only if you promise to try CB again sometime. :P01:47
Yoinx...unless it's an apple motherboard >.>01:47
applejuiceBlue112: See what? Hey, open up your system manager or whatever ubuntu has and see which processes are taking up the most of your cpu resources01:48
blue112Yoinx, was that apple troll :p ?01:48
blue112applejuice, is top ok too :p ?01:48
=== ExplodingPiglets is now known as ForeverAlonedotJ
applejuiceblue112: top is fine. :)01:48
blue112top says : plugin-container => 110% CPU01:48
Yoinxnah, just saying... their mobo's (whatever brand they actually are) would care what they're booting.01:48
blue112 then rythmbox => 8%01:48
=== ForeverAlonedotJ is now known as ForeverAloneJPG
alecbenzerxangua: ie, I'm still in the middle of the upgrade, and ctrl+c-ing warns me that this may leave my system in a broken state. am I just gonna need to deal with that?01:48
blue112Then  xorg and pulseaudio01:48
Aurigaapplejuice, I will tomorrow maybe, I promisish...01:48
blue112with 5% and 3%01:49
jeniaHow do I redirect an error output to a file? When I do: command > file.txt, it only saves output that's not error, but errors it only displays on the screen.01:49
=== ForeverAloneJPG is now known as ExplodingPiglets
applejuiceblue112: so it's plugin-container then. i just looked it up, it has something to do with firefox. kill it for now01:49
applejuiceblue112: and then see what your temp is after that.01:49
blue112applejuice, ok, let's do that.01:49
applejuiceblue112: what are your specs? like processor, ram. gpu?01:49
Aurigaapplejuice, Will posting a link get me kicked?01:49
rubin110Is there a way I can have an ubuntu machine get its hostname over DHCP?01:49
applejuiceAuriga: No idea, I'm new to the irc channel, aha.01:50
neil_dajanthakariyawas: that is good.  but I have never had any trouble with firefox, without the trouble being with the internet connection, sorry I no idea what is wrong.01:50
Aurigaapplejuice, Same to irc in general...01:50
blue112applejuice, processor is a dual core AMD, 3GB ram, GPU is ATI (argh) with fglrx drivers.01:50
Aurigaapplejuice, Well here is the latest cooking release of Slitaz anyways... http://mirror.slitaz.org/iso/undigest/slitaz-cooking-core.iso01:50
blue112CPU actually is : AMD Athlon(tm) X2 Dual-Core QL-6401:50
xangua!ot | Auriga01:50
ubottuAuriga: #ubuntu is the Ubuntu support channel, for all Ubuntu-related support questions. Please use #ubuntu-offtopic for other topics (though our !guidelines apply there too). Thanks!01:50
jeniarubin110: I think you have to do it by DNS server with DHCP assigning the DNS server's address01:51
applejuiceblue112: better specs than my machine. Could it be your gpu thats making your laptop hot?01:51
applejuiceAuriga: Thanks, reading about slitaz right now01:51
blue112applejuice, maybe, then how can I fix it ?01:51
ajanthakariyawasneil_d thanks for your help01:51
blue112applejuice, I'm not even sure what the temp is related to... I'm using sensors.01:51
tohuwWhy don't cd and echo work via sudo?01:51
jeniaHow do I redirect an error output to a file? When I do: command > file.txt, it only saves output that's not error, but errors it only displays on the screen.01:51
applejuiceblue112: sorry, I have no idea how to deal with it. :/ Except for the frustratingly bad answer "make sure drivers are updated"01:52
blue112applejuice, they are :(01:52
Aurigaapplejuice, Sure, just saving you the hassle of going through what I went through with it not working.01:52
applejuiceblue112: whats the temp now that plugin-container is killed?01:52
blue112applejuice, my fan just reduced its speed, and my temp fall down to 60°01:52
applejuiceAuriga: Thanks, but why wasnti it working?01:52
applejuiceblue112: that's still a bit too hot. if windows 7 can run at 40 to 45 without flash, then ubuntu should be close too.01:53
Aurigaapplejuice, Apparently a bug that was never fixed... That's what I was told by a bug tester.01:53
tohuwjenia: Try redirecting stderror. ./your_script 2 > output01:53
applejuiceblue112: maybe try posting in the ubuntu forums?01:53
Aurigaapplejuice, He is the one who gave me that link just now.01:53
blue112applejuice, I don't know then :/01:53
YoinxThe flash one? It's well documented.01:53
blue112applejuice, I don't like forums...01:53
applejuiceAuriga: Ouch, sounds bad. I see that slitaz uses openbox? awesme. :)01:53
YoinxAnd like I said... quite a while ago, your CPU is going to be hot while it's sitting near 100% use.01:53
applejuiceblue112: Why not?01:54
blue112applejuice, how can I see what my sensors values referers to ?01:54
Aurigaapplejuice, That's more than I remember, I haven't ever seen it boot lol.01:54
applejuiceblue112: Whats the name of the program you're using?01:54
blue112applejuice, it's slow, and I should keep watching I have answers01:54
armyantstohuw: they probably built-in's in shell01:54
blue112applejuice, the package is lmsensors and the command is sensors01:54
blue112Is there any other ?01:54
blue11256° now...01:55
monaI did ln -s /usr/share/applications/defaults.list /etc/gnome, trying to make a symlink to that file. Is there any way to recover from that? I don't know what other files where in /etc/gnome before...01:55
jeniatohuw: so, "2" in "2 >" means to redirect stderror?01:55
blue112When I look at it, it decreasing, but when I speak here, it goes to 60°01:55
blue112So I think it won't go lower.01:55
tohuwjenia: yes01:56
gartral_I can't get docky too load the Do addon/plugin/feature01:56
tohuwjenia: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/Bash-Prog-Intro-HOWTO-3.html01:56
Aurigaapplejuice, If you decide to look at Arch there is a page I found that is incredibly useful thusfar.01:57
applejuiceblue112: I don't really understand this stuff. :( Unless someone else here can give you advice, I think you might have to resort to the forums. You can also try posting in the Crunchbang Forums, I'm pretty sure they won't mind trying to help01:57
tohuwjenia: you can also just ./your_script 2>&l to throw all the errors into stdout (the other stuff you're seeing)01:57
applejuiceAuriga: Ooh, link me01:57
jeniatohuw: thanx, is it possible to redirect both: stdout and stderror to a file at the same time? do I need to do something like this?: command > output.txt 2 > error.txt ?01:57
Rogueanyone know if there is a solution to BUG: scheduling while atomic ?01:57
armyantstohuw: but it's not reason it not working :/01:57
blue112applejuice, mkay01:58
* blue112 tries01:58
Aurigaapplejuice, That will get me another warning, then probably kicked...01:58
applejuiceAuriga: ahh, anything I can maybe google to pull up the page?01:58
blue112Anyone here can help me with laptop CPU overheat ? \o/01:58
jeniatohuw: OK, thanx, got it.01:58
Aurigaapplejuice, I just pm'd you.01:58
YoinxYeah blue. Stop using flash in linux... Problem solved :p01:59
Aurigaapplejuice, Or what ever the irc equivalent is...01:59
blue112Yoinx, first of all, I'm a flash developper.01:59
Yoinxat least in ubuntu, it's been a bug for like 2 years now.01:59
tohuwjenia: command &> output.txt01:59
blue112Yoinx, secondly, I'm not using flash for now, and it's still at 60°01:59
blue112Yoinx, it doesn't happen in debian ?01:59
Yoinx60 doesnt sound too bad02:00
Rogueis there a ubuntu in hyperV channel?02:00
blue11260 is kinda hot :/02:00
YoinxDunno, I dont look into much about debian. I just use ubuntu, and know the problem with flash/cpu use has existed for liek 2 years02:00
tohuwRogue: not specifically. Ask your question here, someone may know.02:00
blue112Yoinx, mkay02:00
jeniaYoinx, that's a very bad suggestion to stop using flash on linux. Linux is supposed to be more powerful, then windows, so you should be able and should do anything in linux.02:01
applejuiceBlue112: I'm almost certain it's not a Ubuntu bug since the same packages are used elsewhere and I've never seen temps go up to 85 degrees02:01
Yoinxi know apple said he doesnt have the issue on whatever distro he's using02:01
Gorilla_No_Bakahello everyone...02:01
blue112applejuice, mokay02:01
blue112applejuice, once, it reach 103° then the computer shut down :(02:01
jeniatohuw: thanx, I am reading that howto, you gave me.02:02
RogueI setup Ubuntu Server 10.10 in HyperV, and now I get reoccuring errors saying BUG: scheduling while atomic : swapper (or rsyslogd, or flush).02:02
Da_WreckaI'm having a peculiar issue with Nautilus on my Lucid netbook... I've got a couple of bookmarks set up to shares on my Windows 7 gaming machine. Now, the share works fine, it prompts me for the password and then I'm in, but some of the directories - directories not flagged as hidden, I'll add - won't display. Equally, some of the files in directories that DO show up won't display either.02:02
tohuwjenia: excellent, hth02:02
gartral_jenia: well it's true that *Lnux* is more powerful than anything microsoft can produce, the quality of plugins and other software IN linux is a direct result of the time and talent poured into it.. in the case of Firefox and Chrome, thy're both exceptional.. but Adobe felt there wasn't need too nuild linux-flash as well as they did for windows...02:03
applejuiceblue112: definitely something isnt right.. if you cant find any answers on the forums, try installing crunchbang? It's way faster, more resource efficient, and it'll probably be colder than ubuntu. you'll have to learn to use the terminal more though, but it should be fine02:03
applejuiceblue112: i'm leaving now, but I hope you find your solution soon! :)02:03
Da_WreckaThere seems to be a pattern; The files and directories that show up haven't been modified in Windows 7. The ones that aren't displayed, have.02:03
Yoinxbut here's a search of launchpad for bug reports... https://launchpad.net/+search?field.text=ubuntu+flash+CPU02:03
gartral_[did that get cut off?]02:03
blue112applejuice, I know the terminal, no problem with that02:03
blue112applejuice, I just can't survive without aptitude :p02:03
uekixxHello! i have vps and one IP and also a domain, how can i point my domain to my IP? please help me!02:03
applejuiceblue112: hehehe, thats awesome then. :) I'm out!02:04
Da_WreckaAnyone know how to get Nautilus to show the missing files? Oh yeah, I've also checked, and Nautilus is set to show hidden and backup files, not that the missing entries are marked as either.02:04
Gorilla_No_BakaHey guys  i have a problem with ZTE USB Modem FFF1 We have been issued some of thins things and dince they come already set with the username and password (they only work on Apple OS and Windows and it`s really a matter of pluging it in point and click in order to connect to the internet) I thought is gonna be a easy job to get online with my Linux box..02:05
uekixxHello! i have vps and one IP and also a domain, how can i point my domain to my IP? please help me!02:05
Gorilla_No_Bakabut i had no luck so far.. anny ideas02:05
Da_WreckaAs an example: If I navigate to H:\0MULTIMEDIA\VIDEO in Windows Explorer on the Win7 box, everything is fine. Navigate to the Video directory in Nautilus via the Windows Share, and while a directory like GameTrailers.com shows, Youtube does not.02:05
YoinxUek, you need to set it up to point to your IP on your DNS02:05
Gorilla_No_Bakaany ideas on how to make them work on ubuntu02:05
jeniagartral_: I agree, but I cannot just ignore all those flash animations on many websites and a collection of cartoons that I've got in flash, and say, F*it, I will just ignore flash and throw away my cartoon collection and stop watching videos on video sites, such as utube, etc.02:05
uekixxYoinx: im new, how can i configure my DNS02:06
uekixxgimme a tutorial02:06
jeniagartral_: or switch back to windows, just to watch some flash animations02:06
YoinxUsually you would do it through wherever you bought the domain from.02:06
YoinxSince you probably don't have a DNS server.02:07
Da_WreckaAdditional: I can still navigate to hidden directories in Nautilus, IF I type in the name manually into the Location field. But they won't show up in the file list02:07
uekixxcan i just configure it from my VPS Yoinx02:08
Yoinxdunno, whoever you have your VPS through can probably do it for you, since they typically manage DNS02:08
uekixxi have a cpanel for it02:09
uekixxaight ok i'll try config it02:09
Da_Wreckanobody have any ideas with Nautilus?02:09
YoinxNo idea Da_Wrecka, is it a samba share, or nfs?02:10
dustinhello everyone02:10
=== marcelo is now known as Guest96472
dustinanyone on atm got some time to answer afew ubuntu type questions02:10
Da_WreckaPretty sure it's SMB. I've not set up a NFS daemon on the Windows box02:10
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: you can select view>show hiden files02:11
dustinim kinda new to this02:11
aeon-ltddustin: ask away02:11
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Way ahead of you. Didn't help.02:11
dustinso i could use alittle help02:11
dustinokay here's the low down02:11
aeon-ltd!enter | dustin02:11
ubottudustin: Please try to keep your questions/responses on one line. Don't use the "Enter" key as punctuation!02:11
Da_Wreckasacarlson: And it shouldn't be hiding the entries in question anyway, as they're neither dotfiles, nor marked 'hidden' in Windows.02:11
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: could be permisions of that user to not see all files maybe start as a sudo user gksudo nautilus  but that can be risky02:12
Da_Wreckasacarlson: The same user account has no trouble viewing the files directly on the Windows box02:12
Yoinxyeah, i'm gonna guess with sacar.02:12
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: windows box is not the same user02:13
dustinwell i spent like 4days know after i configured my new ubuntu right02:13
dustinand i see the quake like games they got02:13
dustingood ones just i miss the old style quake 202:13
Da_Wreckasacarlson: I'm using the same credentials to log on to the Windows share as I use to log into the Windows box directly02:13
gartral_I can't get docky too load the Do addon/plugin/feature02:13
dustinand i been trying to find a copy for ubuntu02:13
dustinanyone got a place to find it02:14
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: another posibllity is that nautilus need to refresh to view the file02:14
dustinive literally searched everywhere for the package02:14
xanguagartral_: if you mean doky 2, do and doky are no longer one program02:14
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Way ahead of you again. Refreshing the view with Ctrl-R doesn't help.02:14
YoinxDa_Wrecka, have you checked the permissions on a folder that you can see, and one you can't?02:14
YoinxAre they the same?02:15
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: can the files be viewed or seen form the console?  with ls -l02:15
dustinanyone care to help?02:15
Yoinxdustin, i just linked it for you.02:15
gartral_xangua: i understood that, but are they completly seperate? i thought there was still a plugin..02:15
dustinthanks ALOT yoinx is it easy for loading?02:16
Da_WreckaYoinx: No differences between my Youtube directory and the GameTrailers.com directory. GameTrailers.com shows, Youtube doesn't02:16
brains_so shocked that IRC still lives02:16
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Give me a sec to find out...02:16
dustinlike i mentioned im very new to this  yoinx02:16
YoinxDa_Wrecka,  are you actually checking them with chmod, or just looking at them in the properties window?02:16
Yoinxdustin, shouldnt be too hard, i havent installed it02:17
sabgentonis there a way to check your runleaves of a prog with update-rc.d02:17
sabgentoncan't see it02:17
Da_WreckaYoinx: Using the properties window, since Windows doesn't have chmod02:17
dustinim gonna eat ill talk to you again yoinx02:17
dustinthanks alot aeon btw too02:17
dustinu folks are great02:18
gartral_brains_: ahhaha.. it's not, we're all bots talking like humans :)02:18
ke1hahello all .. i created a ramfs with [ sudo mount -o remount,size=2G /tmp/ngs ] is there an automated way to add this to /etc/fstab at boot time ?02:18
YoinxDa_Wrecka, are you having problems getting to it in windows or ubuntu?02:18
Da_Wreckasacarlson: The directories involved don't show up in a terminal listing02:18
Yoinxand where is this share at02:18
brains_that makes more sense gartral02:18
Da_WreckaYoinx: From Ubuntu. The Windows machine can access every file without issue, it's the Ubuntu one that's having visibility problems02:18
Da_WreckaAs for 'where is the share at', I'm not quite sure what you mean. Can you clarify?02:19
YoinxBut you said you can manually type the path and get to them right?02:19
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: anything not seen with ls will not be seen with nautilus,  nautilus is just a gui for ls and other utility02:19
Da_WreckaYoinx: Right.02:19
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Which means the problem is lower-level than I thought02:19
YoinxWell, the way you just typed that... I assume the folders are on the windows machine.02:19
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: sounds like some kind of a samba thing?02:19
Da_WreckaYoinx: They are; I'm trying to access them from the Ubuntu machine over the LAN02:19
Da_WreckaAnd before you ask it's not a signal problem, I'm using CAT5, not wireless.02:20
Frogging101How do I change the link encap of my wireless card from "Ethernet"? It's causing some problems and I'd like to know how to get ubuntu to properly treat my wifi card as a wireless interface.02:20
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Yeah... Okay, so I need to do some more searching I guess02:20
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: well don't samba mounts show up like anyother with sudo mount ?02:21
Da_Wreckasacarlson: Sort of. I'm using the GVFS fuse daemon here. I couldn't get plain old CIFS mounts to work for some reason02:21
skutr34hey my internal mic isnt working.... it wont record in skype or sound recorder02:22
skutr34please help02:22

Brando1995can someone with good linux knowledge pm me and help with my problem?02:22
Da_Wreckasacarlson: GVFS has a single mount point at /home/dawrecka/.gvfs. I can get to the mounted shares from there.02:23
YoinxDa_Wrecka,  if you can get to them by typing them.. you should be able to do ls -l on them02:23

Da_WreckaYoinx: Using the VIDEO directory example again, if I do an ls -l from the VIDEO directory, Youtube doesn't show up. If I do ls Youtube -l, then it gives me the Youtube directory listing like it should02:24
Da_WreckaBrando1995: No, you can use the x86 kernel too. The Athlon64 supports x64 as well as x86.02:25
Brando1995well which should I use, or does it not matter02:25
bastidrazorBrando1995: how does common sense not help you at all?02:25
sacarlsonDa_Wrecka: mybe the file is still open so maybe try sudo sync and see if that forces it to create the file that is not closed yet02:25
Yoinxthat doesnt make any sense Da02:25
skutr34can anyone help me with my internal mic please it doesnt seem to be working02:25
Da_WreckaYoinx: And yet, that's what's happening02:25
Brando1995I was asking because I had an error with the 64 version, and I didnt know if its like windows you only use 64 bit if you have 4gb of ram02:26
Da_Wreckasacarlson: I did sudo sync, then ls -l; Youtube is still not in the listing02:26
Yoinxtry to just do ls -l VIDEO02:26
Yoinxwich should show the persmissions on all the subdirs (should be the same as doing it from inside the dir.... but you never know)02:26

Da_WreckaIf I enter ls -l, Youtube is NOT in the list, but GameTrailers.com is.02:27
Da_WreckaIf I enter ls Youtube -l, then it will list the contents of the Youtube directory just as it should02:27

Problem is that when I do a ls /media/Ubuntu I don't see the files listed on the How To documentation. And I thnk it's because I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS through windows a few months ago.. using Wubi, I believe. So that's where I'm stuck.. I'm following the how to you mentioned earlier: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Recovering02:52
Da_WreckaIt doesn't show up in listings but it can still be accessed from the shell02:52

illmortal1only through Wubi... from Windows 7. At least to my knowledge.02:59
illmortal1I really regret using Wubi too... I would assume it would all be the same.. but I have a feeling that Ubuntu integrated itself with Windows heh..03:00
illmortal1instead of being on a legitimate partition of its own.. but I could be way wrong.03:00
meanEvolution cant bind hotmail account?03:00
Jordan_Uillmortal1: First, stop trying to install grub to a partition. You almost never want to, and especially with a wubi install as grub is actually not supposed to be installed even to the mbr but rather to a file on your windows partition.03:00

mcurrananyone know how I could fix a gap in my partition numbering scheme?  I removed a partition with gparted (/dev/sda2), that I was going to install OS X on, but I needed the space on my Windows 7 partition (/dev/sda1).  I want to now have /dev/sda3 to correct itself to /dev/sda2...  I read online that GParted might not renumber, but fdisk does, so I'm creating another /dev/sda2 and will delete it with fdisk and see if that works,03:39
mcurranbut let me know if you have any better suggestions, because this is taking forever03:39
ZombieRamennit-wit: I'm not seeing anything03:39

Jordan_Umcurran: They won't be used up. You can always create a new "second" partition later on, even if you already have a "third partition". Partitions don't need to be numbered in the order they actually appear on-disk.03:42

Saiksmw, I'm hoping not lol04:25
smwyou need to switch a physical jumper04:25
Saikwell, time to tear this PC apart then :P04:25
Onix3232But I downloaded it from the ubuntu website... shouldnt it be fine?04:25
SaikOnix3232, did you torrent it?04:25
smwSaik, on the only computer I had to do that to, it has a nice switch :-P.04:25
Saiksmw, 've had several PCs and none of them have been nice lol04:26

RubenAlonzofor anyone that has installed ubuntu netbook remix 10.10, either Acer One or eMachines em250, have you had issues with getting the built-in card reader to work or even be recognized?04:26
hiexpoOnix3232, if the md5sum is not correct download it again04:26

Onix3232theres nothing else i can do? im reluctant to download bittorrent on my friends laptop04:28
smwOnix3232, download it again?04:29
RubenAlonzoif he has ubuntu, use transmission for torrents04:29
smwOnix3232, utorrent is a better torrent software anyways :-P04:29
RubenAlonzoor if he has windows, i like utorrent, its very light and works fine04:30
smwOnix3232, anything is better than bittorrent ;-)04:30
Saiknow if ony O could figure out how to take this desktop apart lol04:30
Onix3232I've tried it 3 times, none have matched... Is there something I can do to increase the odds of it coming out right?04:30
Saikonly I *04:30
SaikOnix3232, use utorrent04:30
smwOnix3232, it maybe that the md5s are wrong04:30
qcjn2hiexpo, this real nice and great explain. But i don't understand the part of a back up, just   after the "make"04:31

smwOnix3232, there are many mirrors. one may be out of sync?04:33
qcjn2hiexpo,  sudo checkinstall --pkgname=x264 --pkgversion "2:0.`grep X264_BUILD x264.h -m1 | \04:33
qcjn2hiexpo, what i understand, is that it made a .deb package04:33
Onix3232Alright, I'll try a mirror, and then if that doesn't work I'll try a torrent. Thanks for the help everyone.04:34
qcjn2hiexpo, i don't know why, and in terminal, it says it can be remove with dpkg -r x26404:34
hiexpoqcjn2, oh ok yes it uses checkinstall which creates a deb file which is cool cause you can use it to install later if need be ith   >   but before you do that command open synaptic and check all and type checkinstall and install it first04:35
Saiksmw, still seeking system password04:35
smwSaik, did you switch the jumper?04:36
Saiksmw, ye04:36
hiexpoqcjn2, oh did you already havecheckinstall installed04:36
smwSaik, did you turn it on after switching the jumper?04:36
Saiknope that's probably what I forgot lol04:36
qcjn2hiexpo, from what i understand, is that if there would be any problem , i could re install this deb file.04:37
qcjn2hiexpo, what is check install04:37
illmortal1Jordan_U awesome I was able to get back onto my Ubuntu... but that command that I needed to type.. it popped up the Grub configuration window.. and I accidentally hit Enter where it read, "command line"... not sure if I was supposed to type something in there or not...04:37
smwSaik, don't forget to switch back the jumper afterwards04:37
hiexpoqcjn2, it says that cause it has mad a deb file and used the deb file to install it04:37
qcjn2hiexpo, is checkintall an app for checking install04:37
qcjn2hiexpo, ok.04:38
Jordan_Uillmortal1: You didn't need to change anything there.04:38
qcjn2hiexpo, it already used it, to install04:38
kevdogno checkinstall is for making a psuedopackage like an apk04:38
hiexpoqcjn2, !checkinstall04:38
illmortal1oh.. ok. I used this this command: sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc but nowhere did it mention a device to select =X  Jordan_u04:38
kevdogPersonally I think checkinstall sucks, and I would just do a sudo make install since in my experience it breaks thing04:39
hiexpoqcjn2, ok than you already had checkinstall or one of the commands had you install it i don'tremember it   but good04:39
qcjn2kevdog, apk, is for apt-get ??, anyway, it s a package04:39
smwSaik, did it work?04:39
Saiksmw, seems that just disables the password, but I just switched it back04:39
Jordan_Uillmortal1: Can you pastebin the output of "debconf-show grub-pc"?04:40
qcjn2hiexpo, ok, then , i ll just continue04:40
Saikand yea it did :)04:40
illmortal1sure will, Jordan_U04:40
hiexpoqcjn2, es04:40
kevdogis someone compiling from source04:40
RubenAlonzobrb, gotta turn something off real quick04:40
smwSaik, of course it "just disables the password". What more did you want?04:40
xrdodrxI figured out how to share my ubuntu desktop but how do I access other remote desktops (I already installed tightvnc)?04:41
kevdogyea and sorry -- I meant a .deb not apk04:41
intokwhy is it impossible to take a screenshot of movie player/totem?04:42
Saiksmw: well, what I meant was it does't seem like it would mater lol04:42
Saikodd.. I switched it back and it's still disabled?04:42
smwSaik, it is used to clear the password. Not disable it.04:43

Jordan_Uillmortal1: Try running "sudo upgrade-from-grub-legacy".04:46
Saiksmw, perhaps, but that's what the bios says04:47
neuro_damageI've been having some real trouble with Nvidia drivers, I installed the nvidia-current and now it's complaining about failing to initialize the GLX module04:47
neuro_damagenot sure what I'm missing04:47
illmortal1hm... Jordan_U apparently something else is using config.dat which is preventing me from accessing that file through that command.04:48
Jordan_Uillmortal1: Do you have apt/dpkg running at the moment?04:48
luisgood evening everyone04:49
illmortal1I closed it after you told me that I didn't need to make any changes there, Jordan_U04:49
illmortal1But it did warn me that the terminal was in the middle of the processes when I attempted to close it, Jordan_U04:49
luisI have a problem with nautilus. it doesn't run04:49
luisthe only way to run it is with gksu04:50
Nach0zcan anyone tell me how I can limit the amount of memory (RAM) a given program is allowed? I know CPUlimit will do the same with processor usage but I can't find a comparable app for RAM usage...04:50
Jordan_Uillmortal1: I didn't mean that you should close the terminal, I meant that you should accept the default and continue on to the question about what devices to install to.04:50
illmortal1oh crap...04:50
illmortal1can I re-run the same command again? Or will it cause an issue?04:51
Jordan_Uillmortal1: I don't know for sure. What happens if you run "sudo dpkg --configure -a"?04:52
luisnautilus doesn't run on my session. the only way to run it is using gksu nautilus04:52
luishow can I fix it04:52
Jordan_Uillmortal1: Note that is *NOT* dpkg-reconfigure.04:52
hiexpoluis, so when you open a terminal and type nautilus nothing happens04:54
illmortal1Jordan_U it drops down to the next line04:55
illmortal1Jordan_U: still can't use upgrade-from-grub-legacy due to the process04:56
Jordan_Uillmortal1: OK, try "sudo dpkg-reconfigure grub-pc" again.04:56
Jordan_Uillmortal1: Please pastebin the output of "ps aux | grep dpkg"04:57

A while ago Ubuntu 10.10 had issues with some xserver stuff when upgrading, so I was recommended some commands that held those specific packages back. The issue has been fixed for a while, but I'm not sure how to reenable these xserver packages again. Any ideas?05:01

ubottufsck is the FileSystem ChecKer, which runs automatically when you boot if you didn't shutdown cleanly. Type "man fsck" for information on running it manually. The command "sudo shutdown -F -r now" will force a reboot and a filesystem check; "sudo touch /fastboot" will skip a filesystem check at next reboot05:50
RubenAlonzoi will try to google it, will try to get it resolved, thanks all05:50

sagaciSaik, http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/xubuntu-restricted-extras07:28
evilvishalabd: i dont know about pulseaudio.. but for each kernel there are 3 packages, so just reinstall those 3 and the drivers should be back07:28
Saiksagaci, maveric is which one07:28
alabdevilvish:  would you name those 3 ?07:28
sagaciSaik, 10.1007:29

evilvishalabd: it should not be a problem, even if the new kernel does not work, you can always boot to kernel 2.6.35-22-generic . kernel 2.6.35-22-generic will not be removed, the new kernel will be the extra option you can choose during boot07:33

mrkrrtfti have the screensaver set to not require a tassword, but can't get suspend or hibernate to not require one07:58
Dr_Willisfisch246:  if you have no other choice you can use wubi. but i dont reccomend it.  also it depends on what you mean by 'safe'07:58
Dr_Willisfisch246:  you could alwyas use virtualbox if you want to experiment with Ubuntu.07:59
ecinx3mrkrrtft: try setting it that that screen saver triggers before it sleeps07:59

ecinx3mrkrrtft: try pressing the lock button on ur machine before hitting suspend button08:01
Dr_Willisfisch246:  wubi installs  the user data and stuff in a disk file. You can always mount that file from a live cd to recover stuff from it - worse case. :)08:01
fisch246o ok08:01
Dr_Willisecinx3:  virtualbox runs very well under windowws and linux.08:01
fisch246does it replace windows, or does it make the machine dual bootable?08:01

pvl1tonysan, mount it first08:04
tonysanan bootable iso08:04
mrkrrtftecinx3, it isn't that kind of suspend.08:05
tonysanI partitioned the usb disk to /dev/sdb1 sdb208:05
Dr_Willistonysan:  depends on the iso. You should use a tool line unetbootin, or the usb-disk-creator, or any of a dozen other tools mentioned at the pendrivelinux web site to put it on there.08:05
tonysanDr_Willis: Will that make the usb bootable?08:05
Dr_Willistonysan:  not all ISO's will work if you just 'dd' the iso to a flash drive. Some do I recall.. it depends on the disto.08:05
ecinx3Dr_Willis: damn.. I have a windows app called OneNote 2010 that nothing in  linux can replicate. and also a program for school Quartus 9.1 wheree the linux version is crippled08:05
tonysanI am using UNR 10.0408:05
cosmodo I need a certain program to mount an ISO and if so can anyone suggest one?08:05
Dr_Williscosmo:  the normal mount command can 'mount' and iso.08:06
ecinx3mrkrrtft: I mean the key combination to lock the computer.08:06
ubottumount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount08:06
ubottuTo mount an ISO disc image, type « sudo mount -o loop <ISO-filename> <mountpoint> » - There is a list of useful cd image conversion tools at http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/CD_Image_Conversion - Always verify the ISO using !MD5 before !burning.08:06
mrkrrtfti don't want the system to require a password when resuming.  locking works just fine when required/08:06
ecinx3that forces u to put a password to use the computer again08:06

airtonixStepNjump: sory it's .hidden08:12

jiltdilSyberia: no not netstat08:13
ecinx3StepNjump: airtonix  suggestion is better than messing with permissions08:13
airtonixStepNjump: chmod will merely prevent them from opening a folder08:13
Dr_Willisits not truely hidden.  but just 'overlooked' by the filemanagers and other apps that know to not show them08:13
StepNjumpok thanks guys08:13
ecinx3Dr_Willis: true, but is he trying to hide it from ls, or from the gui?08:14

ecinx3that would be a question StepNjump  would have to answer as well08:14

airtonixecinx3: when i want to use a pen, i also use paper08:26

jiltdili have two OS installed on my  virtual box and i wand to acess these two via ssh through my host how to do this as both of guest OS have same ip adress?08:26
Dr_Willisgrub2 = you would edit /etc/default/grub eto .08:27
Abhijitis there any frontend for rsnapshot?08:27
Dr_Willisjiltdil:  you can run 2 instances of vbox. and let each os have its own ip. and then if your network is set right. they see each other as if they were on a lan.08:27
jiltdilDr_Willis: two instances means?08:28
Dr_WillisYou can set up vbox network settings where each guest, and the host os. all appear as if they were on the lan also.08:28

ebaheto, you would open /etc/grub.d/40_custom, add a menu entry including your perameter and then run sudo update-grub. You can get your current menu entry by looking at /boot/grub/menu.1st08:30
jiltdilDr_willis: should i set up virtual box network in bridge mode08:30
ecinx3airtonix: that is a personal problem, true. But onenote takes care of that fine.  I just wish I can have linux  apps and use onenote simultanous.. I don't know if I should remove ubuntu,(kubuntu in my case) all together and just run it virtualized. I have 8GB memory if that helps any .08:30
airtonixecinx3: i wouldn't08:31
airtonixecinx3: virtualised windows is easier to rollback when it gets viruses08:31

Dr_Williseto:  you can do that much easier way - just edit the /etc/default/grub file and add the option to the proper line.. and rerun 'sudo update-grub'09:00
Dr_WillisI mentioned this earlier. :)09:00
Dr_Williseto:  if you want a totally ciontrolled kernel entry. Yes. You can cut/paste from grub.cfg to the custome file. Ive done that for windows and other os's09:01
etoDr_Willis: w8 please as  i am going to the ubuntu box to checkt hat file09:01

etoDr_Willis: for the first one09:02
etomain one used for normal system operation09:02

Also says Some index files failed to download, they are ignored, or old ones have been used.09:03

Dr_Williseto:  and you dont want thast optiopn for all kernels?09:04
etoDr_Willis: should i? maybe i should just modify 40_cust.. and then add it to all kernels if all works?09:05
Dr_Williseto:  it would take all of like 20 sec to get it into /etc/default/grub, rerun update-grub and have it set for all kernels...09:05
Dr_WillisI have to wonder why you are wanting this option and how you learned about it.  Whats the level of your ubuntu/linux 'skills' ?09:06
etoDr_Willis: i have it on arch , with no problems more over it "fixed" problems i was having on ext3 with data corruption on power loss, together with write cache disabled for hdd09:07
etoDr_Willis: on the ubuntu box i just want to have maximum data protection in case of system crash, speed comes scond, is my reasosning right?09:08

etoas according to docs i found journal semantics cannot be changed for already mounted fs. even in ro mode09:09
etoas / is mounted with data ordered by default, changing it later in fstab won't work, so it must be passed as kernel param before boot,09:10

scarleoHi, NFS entries in /etc/fstab are only mounted automatically on first login. How can I automount them also when switching user?10:07
phoenixsampraswhy my numpad stopped to work?? it doesnt respond anymore?? bug?? help??10:07
Dr_Willisscarleo:  i would think if the fstab entry was correct. it wouldmount at Boot time. Not login.10:07
Dr_Willisusers normally dont mount nfs entries from what ive seen.10:08
ubottunfs is the network file system. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SettingUpNFSHowTo for information on installing and configuring NFS.10:08
scarleoDr_Willis: Yes, you are right. But that makes the entries only work on first login, not when I switch user10:08
Dr_Willisscarleo:  mine work at boot time.. befor anyone even logs in..10:08
Dr_Willisand a user logging out should not be unmounting those.10:08

Dr_Willisscarleo:  well the only option you have is auto,users... so Im guessign the 'users' option is what you are not needing..10:12
scarleoDr_Willis: This setup does no mount when switching user, if I do sudo mount -a it mounts just fine but won't automount10:13
Dr_Willisscarleo:  that would seem to be allowing users to mount/unmount the nfs share.. is that even needed?10:13

bullgardMaverick produces in irregular times an event sound. How can I determine what program produces this event sound?11:52
Dr_Willisuser82:  You can do a normal /full install to a flash drive. it will work exactly like a Hard drive install.11:52
phetnope: I have refit installed11:52
Dr_Willisuser82:  or if you use a live-cd setup - I think you can give the boot manager some options and skip the install/test items.11:52
user82Dr_Willis, just boot the install cd and choose a usb stick as installation medium?11:53
Dr_Willisuser82:  yep. be sure that the bootloader installs to the flash drive. and not the hard drive.11:53
Dr_Willisthere used to be a bug in the installer :) i think its been fixed.11:54
user82ok i see thanks11:54

coz_yuzodo,  there are very few "how to" concerning  gtk themeing  so this is kind of a hit / miss situation12:33
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  but if it powers off for 10 sec.. its  gone through the same shutdown process as if it was off for an hr.. so somthing dosent make sence there either.12:33
jiltdilDr_willis:thanx should it work like ssh as i am now using ssh and slowly being familiar with it12:33
coz_Crush_,   no I think it was  gtkpod12:33
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  add a new user.. see it causes issues with them.12:33
BaKeRcan run smooth without vblank set12:33
yuzodocoz_, one weird thing though... I changed the color via the normal way and though only the color changed, the font on the button's preview looks different12:33
BaKeRcant run.. my bad12:33
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  you mean to say you Uncheck vblank and it no longer happens?12:33
manojhi... Please tell me a software like netmeeting12:34
BaKeRdr willis my minds boggled about it to12:34
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  what if you never even login as a user...12:34
BaKeRno i checked vblank and unchecked detect refresh rate12:34
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  what if you dont even run compiz at all.. You should proberly patebin exactly whats going on. to get all the points clear.12:34
coz_Crush_,   http://techcityinc.com/2009/02/04/top-10-free-video-editors-for-ubuntu-linux/  also look into  man ffmpeg12:35
p_resmanoj: What feature of Netmeeting do you want?12:35
BaKeRso just set reg settings in apprence?12:35
phoenixsamprashelp! suspend and hibernation doesnt work!12:35
BaKeRwhen i do get the fixing rescue reboot to fix i reboot then i can log in12:36
p_resphoenixsampras: I had the same issue for years and realized it was my bios settings.12:37
MumrahI need to find a way to stop my panels from _occasionally_ disappearing, when I set their property to "autohide". This doesn't always happen, and I can fix it by creating a new panel, overlapping the old one, which forces the old one into view and allows me to access its properties to turn off autohide... but this is convoluted and should not be necessary.12:37
Note-bookFor the life of it, I can't get my mic to work. It's a built-in mic on a HP DV6000.12:37
phoenixsamprasp_res: what did you do with your bios plz?12:37
MumrahI recently installed Docky & Compiz, but the panels problem has exhibited before this too, on another of my Ubuntu 10.10 installs.12:37
=== Guest45560 is now known as DarkDevil
p_resIt was the suspend settings that were set to STR. When I changed it to STP, it worked perfect.12:38
Mumrahoccasionally I would start ubuntu and no panels would display (forcing me to attempt to logout and back in again)12:38

iwohmm, tried redirecting sysout and syserr from chrome during youtube crash, all i get is one message: 'Invalid source argument type'12:38
ubottuHere I am, brain the size of a planet and they ask me to respond to factoid requests. Call that job satisfaction? Because I don't.12:38
BaKeRmumrah ubuntu is very bugy from my experince12:39
BaKeRcant even get a descent looking boot up slpash12:39
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  and how much experience is that exactly?12:39
BaKeRa week or two12:40
Dr_WillisNvidia drivers dont like to play nice with Plymouth.. not really Ubuntus fault.12:40
Dr_WillisI just disable plymouth12:40
MumrahBaKeR, it's been quite stable and reliable for me. I use both Ubuntu and Debian and I find them both quite solid.12:40
Mumrahthere must be more to this panel problem.12:40
Dr_Williswhen i get 5+mo uptimes.... or  ugly boot screens.. ill take the uptime.12:40
BaKeRdisable plymouth to get a text crud boot12:40
Dr_WillisBaKeR: omg.. text.. the Humanity of it all!12:41
Crush_heh thanks for the aid coz_ still no closer to doing it yet, but I'll keep at it12:41
dimmortalMumrah: occasionally I would start ubuntu and no panels would display (forcing me to attempt to logout and back in again) <<< I've only gotten that with natty12:41
BaKeRwhats the best stable version for 64 bit?12:41
Dr_Willisive had very few issues with ubuntu 64bit on my 6 computers12:41
BaKeRok my bad dr willis i thought your wher talking about the splash12:42
Dr_WillisPlymouth is what does the Fancy Ubuntu Anumation. it has replaced Usplash, and othe other splash things12:42
BaKeRwhat does the boot up look like without plymouth12:43
Dr_Willisgrub menus -> plymouth -> login screebn.12:43
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  just nice clean text messages about whats its doing and any errors scrolling by..12:43
Mumrahdimmortal, I get that problem quite often on one of my installs (it's on a quadcore machine, with an onboard intel graphics chip)12:43
Dr_WillisClassic. :)12:43
BaKeRyeah crud like when im shuting down12:43
Dr_WillisBaKeR:  in fact those messages MAY be giving you a clue as to the problems.. if you read themn.12:43
Dr_Willisits possible the shut down messages may be saying somtng.12:44
BaKeRyeah when i shut down i get unmouting weak filesystems12:44
Dr_Willisnow THATS a clue...12:44
BaKeRyes ive done lots of research12:44
Dr_WillisNot sure what it means.. but it sounds imporntant..12:44
BaKeRno fixes12:44
Dr_Willisbut if its unmounting it succesuffly then that shouldent be an issue12:45
ceothanks am not ban :)12:45
ceohallo all12:45
