kiokuhey ubuntu's, i need help installing distribution version 10.04 onto a Toshiba Sattelite and i am having a realy hard time.00:21
kiokuit currently runs windows xp, and i have tried 3 times to install it through the cd00:22
Rummagekioku: I have one of those, what's the issue?00:22
josh_hiexpo: I (finally) got software sources up. on the first tab is the 'Download from' selector. If you're like me and have it set to 'Server for United States', maybe changing it to main server could help.00:22
kiokuit goes all the way through till the end of the installation, and then it tells me "permission denied"00:22
RummageOkay, can you boot the LiveCD?00:23
kiokuwhen i reboot, it gives be the keyboard looking icon "=" the person with the circle around it, and never moves from there.00:23
RummageThat shouldn't happen, to say the least.00:23
kiokuwell, the part where it says "permission denied" is where the cd is in the drive, and i try to install inside windows.00:24
cryptodiraRummage, would you happen to be running amd64 on your satellite?  if so, I have a few questions when you are done helping kioku.00:24
RummageI'd suggest booting the CD itself.00:24
kiokuand when i reboot, it gives me those weird icons at the bottom of the screen, and has a dark purple background.00:24
Rummagecryptodira: My answers will mostly be *FACEDESK*, but sure.00:24
Rummagekioku: That's the options screen. It should automagically try to boot from that, but if it isn't that suggests there's some underlying issues.00:25
kiokui changed the boot bios to where it boots from the cd, and that is where it gives me the weird icons00:25
cryptodiraRummage, :) thanks, i will watch how kioku works out.00:25
kiokuyeah, it gives me the purple screen with the two icons on the bottom and nothing else. It just stops from there.00:25
RummageOkay. Suggestion: When you get to that screen, hit a button and it should bring you to an options menu.00:26
kiokuwhat button?00:26
kiokui did00:26
RummageExcept the power one :|00:26
RummageIt doesn't give you the options menu?00:26
kiokui tried all the function keys, enter, space, some letter keys, esc, and others.00:26
kiokunope, nothing.00:26
kiokuit doesn't even give me a cursor00:27
RummageHuh. Now that's pretty interesting. That suggests there is something really fundamentally wrong.00:27
cryptodirakioku, did you verify the hash on the cd?00:27
Rummagekioku: It's the value given to the CD image which proves it's correctly downloaded.00:28
kiokuim tech savvy, but not THAT tech savvy00:28
kiokuim not sure00:28
kiokuhow would i do that00:28
RummageHowever, this doesn't help you if you have a really bad CD Burner.00:28
kiokuwell, no.00:28
kiokui didn't download it00:28
kiokuit was a mailed in cd00:28
RummageHuh. Those are almost guaranteed to be solid.00:29
kioku10.04 LTS00:29
kiokuyeah, i used it on my DELL inspiron, and it worked perfectly.00:29
RummageBut it doesn't work on your satellite?00:29
kiokuso it is definitely not the cd00:29
kiokuit doesn't work on the satellite.00:29
RummageOkay. Do you know if your satellite is the right architecture?00:29
kiokui have no idea00:30
RummageE.g. using an AMD64 cd with a 64-bit satellite00:30
kiokuoh, like does it meet the requirements?00:30
RummageIt doesn't stop you from proceeding in most cases, of course, I accidentally installed 32b Ubuntu on a 64b system once.00:30
jasaYou know i was watching the BBC News on the satellite side and the translator person doing japanese into english takes all the attention by the way she speaks, rather uncertain of what to say.00:30
RummageMeh, I'm probably barking up the wrong tree.00:30
RummageMy first instinct is to back up all the useful data from the laptop and hard format the disc.00:31
kiokui did that already00:31
RummageWhich is somewhat overkill.00:31

jasaSlight issue was with the hard drive side of putting some type of dirty bit on windows partition and had to edit registery so it won't scan drive during booting Win7.00:34

Mitchell4500Hello. I have 2 server machinces in my house right now and Im running a small webhosting bissiness and im going to be adding another machine and I was thinking of ubuntu. Anyone have some good tips?00:35
kiokuwell, no. I get that when i try to install it seperately from inside windows.00:35
RummageMitchell: Ubuntu Server pretty much covers all your needs. That or go to a server specific distro.00:35
MnCCis there a way to open a taskmanager when a process fails (like in windows) ?00:35

cryptodiraRummage, it is interesting that kioku gets permission denied.... i am in a similar situation where when any choice from the choices screen (booting from cd) i get a hung cursor.00:36

RummageSeriously, it takes a balls-long time for it to even get to the Ubuntu (dot dot dot dot) splash screen on my satellite.00:37

Rummagecryptodira: That mostly tries to bypass your hard disk, operating on the assumption that it is what is causing the hang.00:40
RummageI'm suspicious of your hard disk because that is exactly what went wrong on mine.00:41
jasaAlecUbuntuUser, i think the crystaliser is software made thing, so it would require coders add familiar functionality and name it into something.00:41

cryptodiraRummage, booting 10.10 from the HD, give me 3 kernel options with recovery mode for each....none of which boot without choosing a recovery option first... and powering down just as soon as the last script runs... then rebooting and choosing that kernel...the kicker, is that it is NEVER the same kernel that works 2 times in a row...    in regards to your last 2 comments, i made note of them and will try that approach.00:42
AlecUbuntuUserJasa, could you point me in the direction of something like.... a graphic equaliser for ubuntu 10.10 x64 please? alot of google results are out-datad; seems Alsa is new00:42
Rummagecryptodira: That REALLY sounds like your hard disk. Shifting errors suggests read errors on the disc.00:43
AlecUbuntuUsercryptodira: can you put a live cd mount the drive then do "sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg" remove splash and quiet from the arguments of boot, then see where it stops00:43
AlecUbuntuUserthis will provide some idea at least.00:43

AlecUbuntuUserI know about alsamixer, my old card was an Audigy 4, that had base and treble sliders, this doesn't00:44
Rummagecryptodira: Seriously, if and or when you manage to boot, ddrescue that entire partition.00:44
jasaAlecUbuntuUser, if there is only 1 slider showing then it should be that your using pulseaudio daemon on top of alsa audio etc.00:45

ubottusabgenton: In Ubuntu all runlevels except 0,1 and 6 are by default equal. Also keep in mind that Ubuntu now uses !Upstart instead of System V init so there is normally no /etc/inittab.00:51
Rummagecryptodira; No backlight keyboard.00:51
Rummagekioku: Shoot00:51
jasaAlecUbuntuUser, it should not be re-installation needed issue of, like if you want alsa, you could remove pulse daemon from starting and made sure application use alsa, add packages of libsdl1.2-alsa rather than pulse etc.00:51
jasaAlecUbuntuUser, for making certain somewhat that pulse won't start there is option in /etc/pulse and some file for autospawn to "no" also just to make sure you could remove some packages that don't remove gnome-panel or gnome-session.00:52

jribsabgenton: you can check the status of the old sysv-init scripts using sysvrc-conf but as I keep repeating to you, scripts are migrating to use upstart, not sysv-init00:57

cn1209jrib: I'm trying to run crashplan.com app to backup files offsite. The thing is when I run the app I have to run it as root ("sudo") and the I get errors when it tries to read the files.

earthling_it saves time, dragging the mouse cursor each time there is a dialog button01:11
sabgentonjrib: I spose I should take down all my system v stuff and convert it to upstart01:11

nit-witXunie, actually you want it. It will allow you to have logical partitions inside for Ubuntu, as many as you can fit in there. While leaving the outside as primary types that are needed to boot windows. It is to your advantage to have the whole Ubuntu set up inside the extendeed, but that is your decision. I just want to make sure you know your options.:)01:36
Jon--Can anyone be kind enough to look at this script and tell me why it doesn't work 100% of the time? Goal: bring gnome-terminal to current workspace and set focus it regardless of where it is if open. What it actually does: Only works about half the time, other half totally breaks until you manually set focus the window again. Code: http://pastebin.com/wZrKpGYz01:36
Jon--TL;DR: Why you no work!?  http://pastebin.com/wZrKpGYz01:36
Xunienit-wit, seems like a neat plan, but one problem: Can I resize an extended partition?01:36
nit-wituni4dfx, Oh yes01:36
nit-witXunie, close oh yes01:37
XunieBecause as far as I can see, sda2 (the extended partition) is a 'container'.01:37
nit-witXunie, to resize use the gparted partitioner on a live cd, and turn off the swap with a right click, and swap off then right click the extended or any other and resize.01:38
bittinHello you know of any good Linux for an old Powerbook G3 Wallstreet?01:38
nit-witXunie, your correct that it is a container but flexible it will resize to unallocated space.01:39
Xunienit-wit, sda6 is empty, I can do it from my booted system, don't need live for that.01:39
Xunienit-wit, "resize the unallocated space"?01:39
nit-witXunie, as long as you turn the swap off and it is not the OS your booted into's partition yeah.01:39
XunieI have fdisk open right now, I deleted /dev/sda6, this will not resize the extended partition, right?01:40
nit-witXunie, resize into unallocated space.01:40
nit-witXunie,  think you can but use gpparted you may need to install it .01:41
intokjasa the playback is like that in every video in totem and mplayer, playback is fine in VLC, it's not a codec issue, nor is it a file corruption issue since the same files play fine in totem and mplayer on x86 based hardware. The reason I need a fix is because I'm running an 800Mhz G4 PowerMac using the unofficial PPC build, VLC taxes the CPU too much to play most videos without skipping while they don't skip in the other player01:41
jasaintok, tried to change video output from gstreamer-properties for totem, mplayer should have simplier menu showing on player that does familiar.01:42

carolinaDr_Willis, I installed ubuntu 10.10 for netbooks01:47
Jon--Dr_Willis: I'm not sure how to compile the process and window title information into one system command. wmctrl -l doesn't print the process name, only the window name, an ID, and what desktop it is on01:48
Dr_Williscarolina:  what are you wanting to do exactly? If you want the normal gnome desktop on that thing you should install the 'ubuntu-desktop' package.01:48
XunieHmm, if I understand partitioning correctly, the partition table points to the beginning and end of a partition. And when I delete a partition, the data is still at the pointer.01:49
carolinaDr_willis, i want to use the 3d cube in my desktop01:49

Dr_Williscarolina:  you would be better off spending your timne learning more ubuntu basics then worrying about eyecandy that basically is going to get removed in the next release anyway (or so i hear)01:51

MxzklcDr_Willis: what you mean "that new" ? that new to run windows? if you know how to make them play nice on legacy bios is fine too, if you know how to do with grub2 it would make no difference if i use bios efi or whatever02:05

jhonnyboyHello everyone, what's the best way to design a site to be seen the same across multiple resolutions? Design it for a certain resolution or just place the css code?02:22
Jon--pgrep returns 17109 and the identity as hex is 0x04c00004 . Not the same.02:22
edbianJon--, Look at -p   ?02:22
Jon--Have: Running process found. Want: Extract title of that process for use with wmctrl. Any idea how? [running GNOME]02:22
Jon--I need to write some sort of cut job now though, they still require you use window title -_-'02:23
Jon--The column matches now though. wmctrl -lp terminal entry PID field matches PID returned by pgrep gnome-terminal02:24

Mxzklchello everyone, I'd need some help with dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10 on a pc with aptio bios (supposed to be an uefi), i'm fairly new to dualbooting (only ever used linux on my pc since 2007 lol) only thing i know is that since 9.10 it's a pain to do due to grub2 and id like to avoid having to "bootrec /fixboot" everytime i need windows, would grub-legacy work on aptio bios?02:27
carolinahi i'm trying to use the specials effects but it says that the mutter is running and i can't use them02:27
carolinawhat is the mutter02:27
Jon--Okay now my problem is a bit simpler, maybe someone can help me. I need a script to do something. I have wmctrl -lp output which has it's third field the PID of the processes. I need to find the PID in that list that matches the PID for gnome-terminal running. I then need to get the name field out of that row, which is a part of the fourth field of wmctrl -lp. It's a tricky sed/cut/grep sort...02:27
Jon--...of job now. =(02:27
Jon--Sadly wmctrl doesn't let you find a process given a PID, only print a list which contains PID as well as the title in it -_-'. Need the associated title.02:28
Starminncarolina: It's a window manager. IT effectively replaces Metacity for the GNOME Shell02:28
Starminncarolina: So it sounds like it's telling you it can't do them because it needs Metactiy running, and not Mutter, so something you could try is running "metacity --replace" in a terminal and trying again. (That's just a wild guess though.)02:29
AurigaMxzklc, What about it is supposed to be more difficult?02:29
gabo1323where can I found gift-daemon and how can I instal it, I just instal giftoxic but it doesn work02:29

MxzklcAuriga: what you mean?02:30
carolinaStarminn, how can i do that? i'm new in these stuffs02:30
AurigaMxzklc, You said that it is supposed to be a pain in the ass to dual boot now.02:31
AurigaMxzklc, I dual boot with no hassle, unless I am missing something specific to do with the bios you mentioned...02:31
MxzklcAuriga: i didnt say ass tho =P, but yes, my last attempts failed, windows wouldnt boot, would go to windows logo and restart my pc02:31

rojikkuHEEEEELP Dx I added a source in my Ubuntu software center, and then updated...it was a something like ppa:compiz/paa or something like that, I was looking for the unsupported compiz plugin..And I rebooted after it did some partial system update, and now compiz crashes after a moment when I login!! And alt + f2 isnt' working >>....02:32
rojikkuI was trying to get snow...and this is the help thing right? x.x02:33
AurigaMxzklc, What did you install fist?02:33
MxzklcAuriga: windows then ubuntu, ubuntu boots flawlessly, but if i use it (update and do what i have to) and then restart and switch to windows it wont boot unless i run windows dvd and "chkdsk && bootrec /fixboo"02:33
A|i3NI got an easy question. After finally getting handbrake to run on 10.04, I've got 6 freshly re-encoded MP4 files I want to join into one continuous file. Is there something that'll do this quickly without having to re-encode the whole dang project, and do it with no quality loss? I've got PiTiVi running on it and it's gonna take about 2 1/2 hours. Didn't even take me that long to encode the files from other formats in the first place.02:33
josh_rojikku: You are in the right place! someone will pick ya up shortly :) Or I can try ^_^;02:33
rojikkujosh_, what do you think is the issue? xP02:34
AurigaMxzklc, Wow... Okay... This might be a bit beyond me, as I have not had that kind of issues at all...02:34
MxzklcAuriga: bios doesn't matter, it would have if i had to use grub legacy, did you use grub2?02:34
StarminnJon--: Try in #bash?02:35
AurigaMxzklc, I'm guess I did as that is the fefault no?02:35
MxzklcAuriga: would i be too invasive if i asked you what bios and pc brand you re using?02:36
josh_rojikku: something caused compiz to call it kaputz, of course. The why is a toughie. When you try and run compiz from a terminal what happens?02:36

rojikkujosh_, uhm...gconf? I am not sure...02:38
AurigaMxzklc, EVGA 680i is a 2007 board I think... It's good. Does everything I need.02:38
AurigaMxzklc, As to your 10" Dell... What is the HD size?02:38
josh_rojikku: gnome configuration manager is your friend here :) one sec02:38
AurigaMxzklc, Could you be having partition issues?02:39
MxzklcAuriga: yes no doubt it does everything i was just pointing out my ignorance lol02:39
AurigaMxzklc, No I know, I was just explaining lol.02:39
rojikkujosh_ Uhm, ok...02:39
MxzklcAuriga: I'm not sure, as i said i havent touched it yet, but on a compaq presario cq60 it wouldn't dualboot and it uses phoenix bios which (its not relevant ) is compatible with grub-legacy, while im not sure aptio is02:39
AurigaMxzklc, Windows isn't happy if there isn't enough extra space around the install.02:40
josh_rojikku: if you have something like gnome-do, type in gconf and you'll find it, otherwise do gconf-editor from the terminal to bring it up02:40

AurigaMxzklc, Have you tried installing the other way around, Linux then Windows...?02:41

MxzklccAuriga: yes but i have trust issues, even towards sha1 iso check lol03:11
edbianAnubArack, Or do what you said.03:11
nit-witFirefishe, you can install multiple desktops but the programs will overlap.03:11
nickmoeckI think that ought to solve the problem :)03:11
dr_Willisits dieing a slow  death.. but with each passng day..  its getting colder.03:11
AurigaMxzklcc, Though if you have now bought it, you could torrent one, & as you have paid for it you are not law breaking.03:11
MxzklccAuriga: also, dell didnt add much crap, thats why i wonder whats the reason of tampering install.wim03:11
Senixdr_Willis: well lets hope it stays alive and beats that cancer, because i use it a lot03:11
nit-witFirefishe, the overlap is like you might have two sceensavers both will work03:12
AurigaMxzklcc, Why trust issues? Though that's a good point about Dell.03:12
guestSenix: you realize that regular users of Linux do not care if a site works with Linux or not.  That site works under XP and that would be all that matters to a regular user.  An answer like 'go to the website' does nothing to help a regular user.   Maybe a point to another resource would have been useful?03:12
MxzklccAuriga: i downloaded from digitalriver content, freely, you are right as far as i know about legal download since i have serial lol03:12
josh_rojikku: case + point, fusion-icon mehbeh. prolly try that first.03:12
Firefishenit-wit:  Wasn't there a way to test Unity by creating a special user?03:12
rojikkujosh_: Shiz, it had some screwy glitch and I couldn't do anything for a min, no WM is really bad...and ok 0.o03:12
MxzklccAuriga: trust issues vs dell = tampered wim's    trust issues vs sha1 = it got cracked in the past03:12
dr_Willisi doubt it senix. I think compiz is eventyally going to get  less popular and phased out. its getting merged more and more into the desktops anyway so i guess 'assemalated' is a better term.03:12
rojikkujosh_: And great I can't click anything T.T03:13
AnubArackedbian, Jeruvy i think it's & disown03:13
dr_Willisthe next release is going to be such a shock to people. :)03:13
edbianAnubArack, nohup works too.  Never heard of disown.03:13
rojikkujosh_: ....How do I select the terminal?!?!?!?03:13
mkquistedbian... nohup (command) &03:13
josh_rojikku: sounds like compiz went blaaargh03:13
nit-witFirefishe, no matter what you have to install it, so new user doesn't matter unless you want to lose the superuser staus and have it default to unity03:13
dr_Willisedbian i tend to use 'command &' then the 'exit' command in terminal.03:13
edbianAnubArack, disown apparently also works03:13
AurigaMxzklcc, Trust issues vs dell, vs Microsoft too lol... You will loose those battles.03:13
rojikkujosh_: x.x WHHHHHYYYYYY03:13
Senixguest: you do realize that this is just irc, the information i give is of my own desire to help you.03:14
josh_rojikku: hmm. ctrl+alt+F1 ;) really though, hmm =s03:14
edbiandr_Willis, If you do that 'command' will end when you exit the terminal03:14
dr_Willisget out of the habbit of using the Close button on a terminal windows. :) use exit command.03:14
Firefishenit-wit:  So you recommend a virtual environment to test it, eh?03:14
nit-witFirefishe, you can make the 2nd user a superuser though03:14
dr_Willisedbian it has not done  that in the many years ive been doing it.03:14
MxzklccAuriga: what you mean?03:14
Senixguest: so i just don't care if the information i gave you worked or not, if it didn't work i'd try to use google. have a good day.03:14
edbiandr_Willis, Oh no!  You're right.03:14
dr_Willisedbian now the CLOSE button......  dont use that03:14
edbianAnubArack, Did you get enough answers?03:14
josh_rojikku: if you decide to take me serious on the ctrl+alt+f1 know you need use ctrl+alt+f7 or f8 to get out03:14
edbiandr_Willis, yes03:14
dr_Willisages ago i set up the wm to not evne show a close buitton on my termoinal windows.03:15
nit-witFirefishe, I thought you wanted a whole install,  missread no  would just install the desktop and choose it at the login screen drop-up;)03:15
rojikkujosh_:  Yeah I know.......03:15
AnubArackedbian, i did. thank you03:15
dr_Willisso the moral for today... terminal window = use 'exit' :)03:15
josh_rojikku: whew!03:15
AurigaMxzklcc, I mean whether or not you trust them is immaterial to them. Once they have your money... They will continue.03:15
rojikkujosh_: Rofl. Just how in hell do I get it to load compiz from there? No GUI so it won't load.03:15
Firefishenit-wit:  how do I install Unity, when I also have the usual gnome (2.30.2 in my case)03:15
rojikkujosh_: RAWRG It seems so much easier to reinstall......03:15
josh_rojikku: fair enough =s it's pretty messy as-is.03:16
MxzklccAuriga: yes that's right, what i meant is that the reinstall dvd's checksums dont match the technet ones, and that although digital river's copy does match them I'm still doubtful03:16
AurigaMxzklcc, I'm sure you will be okay.03:16
AnubArackoh man, Orta theme is so sexy. should be default or AT LEAST included in the box03:16
AurigaMxzklcc, If there is nothing on the machine it can't damage anything anyways.03:16
nit-witFirefishe, go to synaptic and look for unity-desktop. I have only had it as a netbook install of the Natty pre release so I assume it is installable.  might just be in the terminal sudo apt-get install unity-desktop03:17
MxzklccAuriga: you mean no OS? lol03:17
rojikkujosh_: Yeah.....reinstallness...x.x See ya, thanks for trying. x3 Though I will probably end up going for snow agian and ending up back here rofl03:17
AurigaMxzklcc, So install & see if it works. Then decide if you to keep it.03:17
AurigaMxzklcc, I assume you are installing on a blank HD.03:17
josh_rojikku: mkay ^_^; take care and feel free to come back sometime! We can help and be helped.03:17
nit-witFirefishe, 8netbook and natty03:17
MxzklccAuriga: my hd is full, oem version of 7, i have a reinstall dvd and a retail iso (got from that site, which is supposed to be legal and official lol)03:17
dr_Willisi have seen MD5 sums for ISO files differ then the md5sum for a 'bought' cd - for the same disk..03:17
Firefishenit-wit:  It's not available.03:18
Firefishenit-wit: I'm using 10.0403:18
dr_WillisI think theres extraa padding or somthing on the end of the premade cd.03:18
Mxzklccdr_wills: yeah, but putting crap into boot.wim and install.wim is criminal lol03:18
nit-witFirefishe, do you have any extra usb thumbs03:18
AurigaMxzklcc, I personally would back up to an external drive, if possible. Then delete & recreate the partitions during a fresh install.03:18
dr_Willisno idea about boot.XXXX :) im judst saying ive seen identical thingshave differnt sums.,03:18
Mxzklccdr_willis : i guess an iso checked against technet's checksum would be more reliable......unless they hacked it loool03:19
MxzklccAuriga: thanks for the hint, nothing worth saving tho, unless you think i should care the mighty powerdvd or the superawesome trend micro antivirus (which dell put in my pc) lol03:19
AurigaMxzklcc, I have never heard of the latter one lol.03:20
Terabytejust asking "if" not "how", is it possible to setup an ubuntu server than only accepts connections from a specific machine on a local network? (e.g. only accept connections from "This user" at ""03:20
AurigaMxzklcc, Different people will tell you different things, but personally I fresh install every time.03:20
MxzklccAuriga: go check your trash bin there may be something similar LOL03:20
MxzklccAuriga: me too, more reliable03:20
edbianTerabyte, yep, filter the packets in IPtables03:21
AurigaMxzklcc, Just to clarify, you will need three partitions.03:21
MxzklccAuriga: holy! win7 needs 3?03:21
AurigaMxzklcc, No no no...03:21
Ar71KI was wondering if someone could help me out with a make i'm trying to do03:21
Firefishenit-wit: What size thumb drive to you think I might need?03:21
AurigaMxzklcc, I mean Win7 1... Linux 2... Data 3.03:21
=== Spacewalker_ is now known as Spacewalker
AurigaMxzklcc, Though techinally Linux will take more than one partition in itself one for swap & root.03:22
MxzklccAuriga: my hd is win7 syscrap , win7sysitself , Linux, swap03:22
Terabyteedbian cool, moreover is it possible to prevent the server from being able to handle connections from the internet at all, so that the ubuntu server isn't even 'smart enough' to establish an internet connection, and is only capable of handling local connections? does it make sense to talk about such a system or is it the case that "if you can handle local connections, then you must be able to handle internet connections"03:22
dr_Willisyou can setuop win7 to not need its boot partiton thing..03:22
AurigaMxzklcc, That Win7 Sys stuff is a back up image I think... It should be like 15gb or something...03:22
AurigaMxzklcc, Personally I see that as wasted space.03:22
Mxzklccdr_willis: i wish i could live without win lol03:23
carolinaStarminn, So if I uninstall mutter and I have install Metacy, cause I have both  already installed03:23
MxzklccAuriga: it does automatically at clean install, you mean i can remove it safely?03:23
en1gmacan halo run on ubuntu with an nvidia card03:23
AurigaMxzklcc, Yes you have to Merge it.03:23

edbianTerabyte, You would have to configure that in the router.  It should be possible.  Depends on what your router is capable of doing.  I don't think you can tell the machine itself because that machine cannot tell if (e.g. is from the Internet or the LAN)03:23
Mxzklccim turning this into a win channel, i bet someone is wishing my death03:23
Ar71KI was wondering if someone could help me install dolphin-emu, I'm following this guide: http://code.google.com/p/dolphin-emu/wiki/Linux_Build03:23
AurigaMxzklcc, You have to hit manual install not auto.03:23
josh_en1gma: dr_Willis beat me to it; WINE is your weapon of choice there.03:24
MxzklccAuriga: thanks! didnt know about it (as i said since 2007 i havent even seen a windows cd)03:24
Ar71Kand I can't get it to make properly03:24
Starminncarolina: Since you clearly won't follow my advice, ask somebody else.03:24
AurigaMxzklcc, When it shows you the partition manager. In that create the partition.03:24
Diopsidejoin #ableconf03:24
Terabyteok edbian thanks for clarifying03:24
MxzklccAuriga: i know, manual // create 1 partition // it creates 2  lol03:24
en1gmayea i know about wine and even cedega but i just want to know if halo can work and i got it from there03:24
AurigaMxzklcc, Then it will show you a 200mb partition. Delete the other partition, then merge the 200mb one into the other larger partition you intend to install on.03:24
dr_Willisen1gma check the wine app database.03:25
josh_en1gma: if its in winedb than sure. :|03:25
AurigaMxzklcc, It will give you some warning about something, just continue as it will never cause you any issues anyways.03:25
MxzklccAuriga: i wonder why it has to be so hard lol i even have to care how many partitions the crappy windows creates -.-03:25

AurigaMxzklcc, It's because it Bill Gates & Steve lets make their lives harder for no reason Balmer is why.03:26
dr_Willisms took the idea of a boot partion from linux? :)03:26
dr_Willisand it makes it harder to install linux side by side.03:26
AurigaEverybody took every idea from Linux!03:26

dr_Willisen1gma most all the install disks should work with nvidia BUT - i have to use the nomodeset option on most all my nvidia systems to get them to boot properly  to install.03:34

MxzklcAuriga: if you say please its not lol03:37
josh_en1gma: funny thing with cd's in the current iteration of ubuntu, they complain about executable bit (ask him if that's what it was)03:37
AurigaMxzklc, Lol I'll try that next time... Please pacman get-update.03:37
josh_en1gma: make sure you use wine loader directly, and not with nautilus's default cautious-loader or w/e it is.03:37
en1gmahe says he got wine from ubuntu package manager03:37
dr_Willistheres a  silly security feature where the .exe for wne needs obe executable.. and thats  a issue with how cd's get mounted by default03:38
MxzklcAuriga: lol03:38
en1gmai dont know if there is any configuring that needs done03:38
Starminnen1gma: For me, at least, when I try opening things with WINE like that it won't work. I have to type in a Terminal "wine /path/to/file"03:38
josh_en1gma: cautious-launcher is what it is, prolly.03:38
dr_Williseasy work around. use the terminal. NOT the gui to launch the exe.   ->  wine /media/cdrom/setup.exe03:38
MxzklcAuriga: you know what netbook you re going to buy?03:38
AurigaMxzklc, That is my second tech joke, I think I am now officially a geek...03:38

AurigaMxzklc, It's an Asus something, already on it's way.03:38
josh_(Starminn, one compound word -- cautious-launcher ;] )03:38

policyqis Unity 2D on a LiveCD anywhere yet?03:39
Starminnjosh_ I saw your answer after I gave mine, lol.03:39
MxzklcAuriga: already on its way == tomorrow some dude may come to your house and say "your netbook is ready"? (sounds much like suse ads lol)03:39
Starminnjosh_: What exactly is cautious-launcher?03:39
josh_dr_Willis: ionno O.o03:39
AurigaMxzklc, Lol.03:39
dr_Willispolicyq i thouight it was allready on them.  the GDM/Login screen should have a menu item to select it. Ive never sene a  special live cd with Just the 2d env03:39
dr_Willisstarminn a front end to wine. that dosent seem to do a lot :)03:40
MxzklcAuriga: i think im sticking with dell, business support is good, if i throw my pc outa the window i can call them say "my pc grown legs and jumped, fix it!" and they will do it03:40
dr_Willisstarminn othe then to check the executable bit and pop up a dialog.03:40
josh_Starminn: basically, it's a program that says it doesn't have the executable bit set if it's a CD (more or less).03:40
en1gmai have an intel x25-v 40gb ssd with win7 installed on it and no space to install ubuntu if i want....but i can do a secure virtual machine with it?03:40
josh_Starminn: it's a big PITA03:40
en1gmai got 4GB03:40
AurigaMxzklc, Yeah but that means you have people poking around your machine too... That's not cool.03:40
dr_Willisen1gma  secure virtualmachine? you can use vbox or vmware. yes...03:41
Starminnjosh_: Yeah, the "executable bit" is what prevents me from runnning things from a right-click menu.03:41
en1gmamaybe i can test with that stuff.03:41
dr_Willisbut whats 'secure' got to do with it? :)03:41
en1gmain my bios it says svm03:41

policyqdr_Willis: i did try Natty Alpha 3 but it didnt have Unity2D when I logged in without a 3D card. I dont remember a GDM menu but didnt really look for one. before i give that another try, is that the LiveCD you are thinking of that might have it?03:42
en1gmai gonna x out and try and get this going...thnx for the help03:42
josh_aaand he's gone =s03:42
dr_Willispolicyq  havent used natty. I dont even like the netbook interface.03:42
AurigaMxzklc, I wouldn't want to pay for an apple...03:42
dr_Willispolicyq with natty. i think its all on the same disk now. theres not going to be differnt editions.03:42
MxzklcAuriga: i have 1, its there sitting lol03:43
Starminncarolina: Ah. I just said, as a wild guess since nobody else was here, that it's basically trying to use the wrong thing. So I said you could always just try running "metacity --replace" in a Terminal and try again and maybe it'll fix itself that way?03:43
policyqdr_Willis: oh, which particular one did you think might have the GDM/login ? any one in particular03:43
Starminncarolina: Now that there are more people here, however, try asking others too if that doesn't do it.03:43
josh_unity, eeeew03:43
dr_Willispolicyq must have been the normal netbook cd. i dont even know of any others that exist.03:43

vtrahI have a problem with my graphics card in ubuntu. anyone can help me?03:44
dr_Willispolicyq you could always do a install to a flahs drive and just install the thing if its not on the default cd.03:44
AurigaMxzklc, Apple is way to heavily priced, plus they are releasing things more quickly than anyone else too meaning you are always buying old products almost.03:44
carolinaStarminn: thank you very much! :)03:44
BreachI picked up an Acer Aspire One D255E (10.1 netbook) just to play around with. Which would be the best option.. Ubuntu 10.10 or the 10.10 netbook edition?03:44
brightsparkvtrah: brand of card?03:45
dr_Willisbreach dosent really matter.  depends on the interface you want by default03:45
policyqdr_Willis: i might give that a shot if it turns out not on Natty when i give it another try. whats the package name? if you know off hand03:45
edbianBreach, It's opinion really.  I suppose netbook edition is friendlier to small screens but many people (myself included) can't stand it.03:45
josh_Breach: are you familiar with both? either?03:45
vtrahintel chipset 82945GZ03:45
dr_Willisbreach with 11.04 it wont matter. the 2 will be the same. :)03:45

brightsparkvtrah: is the problem Natty-specifc?03:46
MxzklcAuriga: and about apple, yes alot overpriced, but rather cool operating system (a well dressed freebsd lol)03:46
Starminnjosh_: Then you've got GNOME 3 doing away with minimize/maximize03:46
Starminnjosh_: GNOME 3's move is like Apple eliminating right-click.03:46

dr_Willisbreach i would stick to the desktop env. the netbook interface is annoying. :)  plys when 11/.04 comes out- you will have to learn a new inteface anyway03:47
AurigaMxzklc, I haven't seen a mac since the mid 90's So I can't say what it's like but still I'm not driven to save for one lol.03:47
josh_Starminn: eeh. I think that's not so cool, but otoh I'm using xmonad and have no minimize, maximize or restore ;)03:47
Breachdr_Willis: Is 11.04 pretty stable right now?03:47
Starminnjosh_ Lol03:47

AurigaMxzklc, Though from some reviews I am seeing, Things are installing by default pretty well.03:49
MxzklcAuriga: lol bluetooth 3 and wifi N is awesome03:49
nit-witBreach, I would not use it as a relied on setup in other words no.03:49
MxzklcAuriga: you may have problems with nvidia card, being forced to use integrated one03:49
Breachnit-wit: So will the desktop 10.10 be difficult with the small screen?03:49
AurigaMxzklc, If it had USB 3. It would have been the complete package.03:49
policyqStarminn: so there wont be any resize windows in GNOME 3 at all or will it just be deemphasized03:49
AurigaMxzklc, I will find a way around it when it arrives.03:50
FirefisheCan 10.04 upgrade to kde 4.6?03:50
Starminnpolicyq: As I understand it you will still be able ot resize as usual, but there will be no minimize/maximize, as (according to them) "there are plenty other ways to maximize windows, and with multiple desktops there is no true need to minimize" (not a direct quote, btu close)03:51
MxzklcAuriga: you can either "not install nvidia drivers" (which is supposed to leave u with intel card) or "install nouveau drivers for it" (which is supposed to work as much as nouveau would)03:51
MxzklcAuriga: thats all i know since my laptop was supposed to have a nvidia optimus card too and i gone with intel gma hd lol03:51
AurigaMxzklc, So wait, you said earlier about saying please to Arch as a joke...  Does that mean you have installed a gui on Arch before?03:51

AurigaMxzklc, Thanks for the heads up on that. That will save me some time when I get it.03:51
nit-witBreach, I guess you should just download t and run it live really I don't mind it that way when I actualy need it.03:51

MxzklcAuriga: about the gui, there is alot of documentation, or at least there was when i tried03:52

cosmoI know in win7 I can link folders to my library folders like video or music, can I do the same in ubuntu and if so how?03:59
AurigaMxzklccc, Might do, might try CB though.03:59
josh_Bruce_Wayne: does it complain about 'the keyring not being unlocked when you log in'?04:00
mndrllubottu, thanks04:00
ubottuYou're welcome! But keep in mind I'm just a bot ;-)04:00
AurigaMxzklccc, Just looking for something that will teach me more.04:00
mndrllone other thing..04:00
MxzklcccAuriga: as metre to see if linux is supposed to work i use fedora and ubuntu, try them first , less risks to find out too late that linux has issues on it04:00
josh_Bruce_Wayne: or is it just a boilerplate err?04:00
MxzklcccAuriga : try ubuntu first, lets you know whats proprietary into it lol04:00
mndrllhow can i get to change the keyboard language??04:01
AurigaMxzklccc, Yeah I use Ubuntu now obviously.04:01

AurigaMxzklccc, Lol, I go to start up the Arch Vm.... &...? I have forgotten the user info I installed lol....04:01
MxzklcccAuriga: i mean on the netbook, especially due to the nvidia optimus thing, also , since ubuntu i massively used you will find way more solutions on their forums04:01

MxzklcccAuriga: sad part is nvidia said they wont support linux...newbs <.<04:02
Bruce_Waynejosh_, I'm sorry my friend for late reply04:02
AurigaMxzklccc, Really? So they are stopping the current support?04:03
MxzklcccAuriga: i said it wrong, i meant support for optimus on linux04:03
Bruce_Waynejosh_, I have kept "Automatic Log on" feature in ubuntu04:03
AurigaMxzklccc, Ahhh okay. Then that's okay.04:03
Bruce_WayneJosh_, and I'm using gwibber for social networking04:03

=== kenny is now known as Guest31992
AurigaMxzklccc, I don't even know what they are lol.04:04
MxzklcccAuriga: but in your case you can rely on an intel card too (optimus uses 2)04:04
MxzklcccAuriga: im not anglophone so its hard to explain but04:04
josh_Bruce_Wayne: aah. The auto login is a slightly different thing; in that it should still unlock your keyring. You use gdm?04:04
AurigaMxzklccc, Yeah though I intend on making everything on that netbook work %100.04:04
AurigaMxzklccc, Ahhh Italian.04:05
MxzklcccAuriga: optimus lets you reduce power consumption by using intel card when you dont need high graphics and nvidia card when you do (like when you play)04:05
AurigaMxzklccc, It's okay. I will google it all.04:05
josh_(Bruce_Wayne: you prolly use gdm).04:05
AurigaMxzklccc, Ahhh that, yeah I didn't know it had a name.04:05
Bruce_WayneJosh_, so when I log in in my account in ubuntu.. it asks me for "Unlock Keyring" password and when I type in my password, only after that gwibber is accessible.. It's not about not typing the password.. but it gets little annoying everytime04:05

Mxzklcccvegas_hp what you mean by "best"?04:17
Vegas_HPMxzklccc - is it worth it to use? Or should I use something else04:18

nit-witMxzklccc, actualy if you want a arch live with openbox go here. http://archbang.org/04:18
Vegas_HPNo, im just going to set it up mainly as an FTP server that sits in the cornor04:19
thraspicI changed the icons for wicd easily, but I can't figure out how to change the icon for the volume icon in the tray.  /usr/share/icons/theme has 6 folders with the same icons in 6 different resolutions.  how do i know which to change?04:19
josh_Vegas_HP: There's tons of software out there for remote viewing, and we dont know all of them. Gotta know what it is you want to do :)04:19
Vegas_HPMxzlccc - No, im just going to set it up mainly as an FTP server that sits in the cornor04:19
MxzklcccVegas_hp : in that case id say yes04:19
Vegas_HPMzxklccc - so what program is it using then?  So i can install that software on other machines04:20
josh_Vegas_HP: if you are going to use it for FTP, why a graphical desktop? =S or do you have a graphical app better suited than a commandline app? I ask because it would seem ssh would be a better option..04:20

Vegas_HPJosh - No, I have used FreeNX but just never set it up myself and I am failling at installing it.  I tried Team Viewer and that didnt work.  I saw that this "remote desktop viewer" as already pre installed and wondered if it was a safe and easy program to use.  Mainly going to be using it for FTP maybe some surffing but not anything intentesive04:23
Mxzklccvegas_hp : sorry disconnected, you said anything?04:23
PrillicyI formatted my hard drive and stuck usb Ubuntu on an SD card and managed to get (with some hassle) ubuntu to run from the usb disc.  Now, I got it to recognize my hard drive and teold it to install and it's gotten all the way through the installation process to the "Who are you?" screen.  Here, it's refusing to allow me to click Forward.  Did I miss something stupid?04:24
bastidrazorPrillicy: use all lowercase04:24
Mxzklccprillicy: did you tell it who you are?04:24
josh_Vegas_HP: if the default is the same as vanilla ubuntu, it should be ok04:24
PrillicyI filled in my name, a computer name, a username, a password, and tried log in automaticlally AND requiremy password, with and without Encrypt my home folder checked...still only lets me click back04:25
josh_Vegas_HP: (The viewer I have is vinagre, works ok and does ssh and vnc).04:25
MxzklccPrillicy: it shown any error?04:25
Prillicythat did it, all lowercase, it didn't really say that...anywhere04:26
bastidrazorPrillicy: it does not inform you that lowercase should be used.. hopefully their working to put in a factoid for the installer04:27
PrillicyI must've missed it04:27
PrillicyI often miss the obvious04:27
AurigaMxzklcc, Are you installing right now?04:27
Vegas_HPJosh any idea what this program is called so i can download and use it on my other machines04:27
MxzklccAuriga: win 7 and ubuntu?04:28
Prillicyalso, I should note, I can't read the installer details on a netbook.  The 1028x600 resolution cuts off all the install details when I try to read them because the window becomes too big for the screen, maybe that's where it said to use lowercase04:28
AurigaMxzklcc, Just wondered out of interest.04:28
bastidrazorPrillicy: it does not tell you to use lowercase.04:28
MxzklccAuriga: sorry dont get the question, you wondered  if i decided to install on my dell?04:28
AurigaMxzklcc, Yes & if you are doing it right now?04:29
MxzklccAuriga: not yet, mainly because dell is back in the pack and the room where it is is rather distant from where i am now lol, may get on it soon tho04:29

notsocommonDoes Ubuntu 10.04 have a file comparable to linux-restricted-modules-common that I could use to help me install my graphics card?04:44
saintbasil_I am unable to mount any device with a hard drive in it via USB. I tried an external HDD, and a Sony Walkman. Both devices mounted fine on my Windows partition and on a separate Ubuntu PC, o I know they are not the problem. I get the following error: http://pastebin.com/b7eKWZwx my dmesg is: http://pastebin.com/33hUkcT8 and my fstab is: http://pastebin.com/SUPrpDsG so what's wrong?04:44
Symmetriadoes anyone here happen to know how often ubuntu probes for updates?04:44
Madpilotjiltdil, to create a zip file, right-click on the file you want to zip and select "Compress..."04:44
notsocommonAlso my graphics card says it might be getting resistance from nvidiafb and was it nouveau?04:44
ericyjiltdil: Right click on your file in Nautilus file manager, and select to compress it with password.04:44
josh_Symmetria: distribution or daily updates?04:44
Symmetriajosh, just general updates04:44
Symmetriatrying to figure out what someone is doing to one of the mirrors04:45
=== clay__ is now known as ClayG
josh_Symmetria: general updates are generally run through update-notifier with a time switch of 60 seconds when you start a session-- or, every time you startup it should look for updates.04:45
ClayGHow do I make the drawer you can add to your gnomepanel larger than 3 icons/applications worth of space?04:45
ClayGmy netbook will not recognize sd cards, how can i fix this?04:46
Symmetriajosh ok, so every time you log in it checks?04:46
josh_check your startup applications in system/(user?)/startup applications, and look for the update notifier if thats not the case04:46
josh_Symmetria: mhmm. also ^04:46
ericyjiltdil: Actually, you should go to the Ubuntu Accessories menu, and open the Archive (compression) Manager, and select zip file with passord.04:47
Prillicyawesome, this is great04:47
Prillicyfirst question: how do I turn off Ubuntu's nanny?04:47
AurigaMxzklcc, I'm going to go & watch a movie before I go & sleep, so if anything let me know what happens when you get to your dual install. I want to know if it will work.04:47
Symmetriajosh no can do :) Im just looking at our mirror logs and trying to figure out why a single IP that I presume is a proxy of some sort has managed to rack up 6 million hits to us in the last 4 days04:47
Symmetriabefore I phone em and ask em what the hell they doing :)04:48
MxzklccAuriga: sure thing, ill pop in and tell you if i find you on, thanks for your time and for the talk liked it04:48
jiltdilericy:yes i see but only .zip file compression provides password if i set to it as other with password how to do it?04:48
notsocommonDoes Ubuntu 10.04 have a file comparable to linux-restricted-modules-common that I could use to help me install my graphics card?04:48
MxzklccAuriga: enjoy the movie and good night when you go04:48

ericyMadpilot: jiltdil: Actually, you need to the Ubuntu Accessories menu, and open the Archive (compression) Manager, and select zip file with passord.04:48
PrillicyIt's asking me to put in my password every few seconds for one install or another.  Is there a way to turn that off?04:49
MxzklccAuriga: mind you im on empathy so not sure if ill see lol04:49
ugliefrogi recently removed a tuner card from my system and i have put it back in .... is there away to refresh it...its not working like it once did04:49
=== Guest44693 is now known as DarkDevil
xanguaPrillicy: it's not, you have 15 minutes after you enter the password04:49
jiltdilericy; ya i selected zip with password. i want to say that if i want to use other than.zip then how to set password04:49
soultravel369I am using xchat and iriss, iriss is really tech hahah04:49
Prillicyxangua: how do I turn it off?04:50
=== DarkDevil is now known as Guest75884
notsocommonubottu-I know it doesn't as such. But I was wondering if there was a comparable directory in lucid to l-r-m-m?04:50
ubottuError: I am only a bot, please don't think I'm intelligent :)04:50
MadpilotPrillicy, nanny?04:50
Madpilotericy, right-click->Compress should also give access to "zip with password" as an option. Possibly under the "other options" dropdown to expose the password dialogue04:50
MadpilotPrillicy, going with a passwordless install is really NOT recommended...04:51
ericyjiltdil: You have to use a separate encryption utility( which can encrypt your open office file.04:51
Prillicylinux has a password, that's cool, but I don' t need to be asked if I'm sure every time I do something04:52
jiltdilericy: ok how to make it digitally signature as there is option but m unable to use it04:52

Madpilotsoultravel369, not from anywhere near TX myself. Chat in #ubuntu-offtopic not here, though.04:55
MadpilotLogan_, ?04:55
StarminnLogan_: Did that really require an ops call?04:55
jiltdilericy:plz tell me i want to secure it as it is one of my confidential presentation04:55
soultravel369<--- first time on IRC04:55
soultravel369whats an ops call?04:56
Prillicyso no one can tell me how to turn off the nanny in linux?  I can turn off the nanny in windows.  why not linux?04:56
soultravel369I think I need to read about irc more now hahah04:56
MadpilotPrillicy, because Linux is more secure than Windows. Next question?04:56
ericyjiltdil: In Synaptic Package Manager, search for: file encrypt04:57
Starminnsoultravel369: In this channel, when somebody says "!ops" as the first thing on a line it calls all of the channel operators (i.e. the people who govern this channel)04:57
ClayGmy netbook will not recognize sd cards, how can i fix this?04:57
jiltdilericy:ok thanx04:57
soultravel369oooh okay, thanks Starminn04:57
StarminnPrillicy:  IT is what defines Linux and makes it so much more secure than Windows. Windows only just started implementing a password system (half-assed, too, if I may say so myself). Why? Because they saw how great it was.04:57
Madpilotsoultravel369, just hang out here, ask questions if you have any. "/join #ubuntu-offtopic" to join the offtopic chat channel.04:57
josh_Prillicy: more security isn't always so bad. If you need to do something for long periods of time as root, though, there's always sudo su04:57
PrillicyMadpilot: so you're saying that linux needs a nanny to protect users from all those nasty linux viruses out there?  I can understand that04:58
soultravel369k, will do Madpilot04:58
eyesuckhey whats the command to create a blank file from command line? e.g. "*cmd one.html two.html three.html"04:58
Flanneleyesuck: touch04:58
eyesuckah ok i thought it was something like that04:58
ericyjiltdil: ok.04:58
soultravel369you don't need a nanny, you get root to set user privs and stuff04:58
Fudgehi i have a couple of ubiuntus debian installed etc, but when i update a kernel maverick is updating grub, how can i remove grub-pc from maverick and let lucid manage grub? if i remove it from maverick since lucid had preivously installed it will it still be there or removed completely loL conused04:59
Starminn!virus | Prillicy04:59
ubottuPrillicy: Antivirus is something you don't need on !Linux. except where files are then passed to windows computers (perhaps using samba), See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Antivirus04:59
soultravel369and wine04:59
MadpilotPrillicy, in Linux, you don't own the system. You own  your own files, the system owns it's files. Hence needing a password to mess with system files. (I'm generalizing)04:59
Prillicyso if linux doesn't have viruses, why do I need to tell linux that I'm the one making changes....04:59
StarminnPrillicy: Read up about user permissions.04:59
soultravel369I don't use wine for the fact of how easy it is to get a virus04:59
josh_Prillicy: there ARE trojans and rk's out there... but of course, they aren't very prevalent and they generally require *root access* ;)04:59
MadpilotPrillicy, because it might not be you sitting at the keyboard?04:59
YankDownUnderYep, and we all know that getting a virus in linux is a horrible thing.05:00
soultravel369you tell Linux you make the changes as Root, so that no one else can... safer than Windows05:00

StarminnPrillicy: You own your Home folder. For everything else you need to enter the password (i.e. sudo)05:00
Madpilotubottu, tell Prillicy about sudo05:00
ubottuPrillicy, please see my private message05:00
Logan_join part span05:00
tsimpsonPrillicy: actually, requiring a password to gain privileges is one of the reasons there aren't many viruses for linux, disabling that feature would help them to spread. but if you want to stop something asking your password every X time, run the installer itself from sudo05:00
soultravel369sudo gives you root for commands05:00
MadpilotYankDownUnder, s/horrible/damn near impossible05:00
YankDownUnderMadpilot, Yes, mate, I know - that was sarcasm.05:00
Logan_thanks KB1JWQ05:00
soultravel369Ubuntu = Sudo and Fedora I beleive is Yum... both are root05:01
Prillicythanks for the infor everyone05:01
StarminnPrillicy: As it stands now, if you were to get a virus, it wouldn't actually hurt anything but a few files because in WIndows it can reach everyhting. In Linux it's confined ot a few files05:01
josh_Prillicy: what makes you need root access so much neway??05:01
Fudgehi grub, if i remvoe grub-pc apt wants to isntall grub. how can i remove it from maverick without installing grub?05:01
tsimpsonsoultravel369: Yum is a package manager, like apt, not like sudo05:01
Prillicyapparently installing chrome05:01
YankDownUnderUnder wine, a virus is just plain stopped dead in it's tracks because it can't affect or automate. End of story.05:02
Madpilotsoultravel369, not quite. Ubuntu's yum equivilent is apt-get or aptitude05:02
* josh_ hi-five's em05:02
Prillicywhich I should note, you can do in windows without even decent access, heh05:02
needlezanyone know if I can make it so that my computer requires a password to access grub or something like an encrypted harddrive without losing my system??05:02
soultravel369oooh okay.... Tsimpson... I thought Yum was root equivlant as Sudo in Fedora05:02
soultravel369my bad05:02
StarminnPrillicy: That's because it installs it for all users, and if you look at your file heirarchy, /usr is below /home/<yourname>05:02
Jordan_UFudge: What is the output of "sudo apt-get remove grub-pc"? Why are you trying to remove grub-pc in the first place?05:03
tsimpsonPrillicy: technically you can in Linux too, just not system-wide05:03
StarminnPrillicy: And yes, that "without decent access" is why Google has shut down using all Windows computers. Because they got hacked and are now no longer using Windows05:03
Prillicyso I was looking into multitouch, and hte first thing I found requires me to add code to a file...looks odd to say the least, could someone walk me thorugh this05:03
soultravel369I use "sudo aptitude install *package*"05:03
FudgeJordan_U  grub-pc will be remvoed and grub will be installed05:03
soultravel369aptitude is cleaner than apt-get imo05:03
MadpilotKB1JWQ, might want to tweak that ban you set. You might just have banned some significant tranche of AOL victims... :)05:03
Fudgei have lucid maverick mint and arch on this drive and i am trying to manage grub-pc with lucid05:03

Prinler^LinCan someone help me out with a partition issue? I installed XP on the first 160GB of my HD... and the other 160 is ubuntu.... I dont want XP Anymore! How can i delete it and allow Ubuntu to have all 320gb?05:05
FudgeJordan_U  its pretty straight forward, sorry if i didnt explain it better05:05
jiltdilJordan_U:the data in it is quite confedential so i want to use this05:05
xanguaPrinler^Lin: use gparted from live cd to delete windows partion05:06
Madpilotjiltdil, short version, don't ever publish it anywhere. Long version, it's very, very hard to keep people from copying stuff...05:06
Jordan_Ujiltdil: If it is confidential then don't give the file to anyone that shouldn't have it.05:07
Prinler^Linxangua,  if i delete the partition will my Ubuntu still boot?05:07
FudgeJordan_U  did you notice the paste url05:07
jiltdilJordan_U:ok thanx05:07
Jordan_Ujiltdil: Why are you giving it to people who you can't trust if it's confidential? They can always use a camera phone or paper and pencil.05:07
xanguawikileaks documents are confidentials :P05:07
YankDownUnderNot 'spose'ta tell folks about Wikileaks...dang...secrets out now...dang...there goes the world...05:08
Jordan_UFudge: Yes.05:08
silkonfree energy05:09
Madpilotjiltdil, if your "quite confidential" file really absolutely has to go up on the web for some reason, it probably isn't that confidential. Still, a password-locked zip with a very strong password is likely a good starting point... or PGP/GPG05:09
Jordan_UFudge: Can you pastebin the output of "aptitude why grub-pc"? (I don't have this problem when I try to remove grub-pc).05:09
jiltdilMadpilot: how to use PGP05:10

FudgeJordan_U  i   startupmanager Depends grub | grub-pc05:11
Madpilotjiltdil, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuPrivacyGuardHowto05:11
Jordan_Ujiltdil: ericy: gcipher offers no real security. Nor does it even  claim to.05:11
ericyjiltdil: Yes that is right.05:11
FudgeJordan_U  so i can remove startupmanager anyway i believe05:11
jiltdilJordan_u: u r right i saw gcipher05:11
Jordan_UFudge: Then: sudo apt-get remove grub-pc startupmanager05:12

JuNeX@MTecknology what is the meaning of this? --> 'net usershare' returned error 255: net usershare add: cannot convert name "Everyone" to a SID. Invalid parameter.06:04
JuNeXi have restarted my system many time already and still having this error when sharing06:04
Ant13Jordan_U: it's supposed to be a linux problem, since it happens after i installed ubuntu, and generally after grub2 was introduced06:04

JuNeXits in my ubuntu06:05
Jordan_UAnt13: You've had Ubuntu make Windows unbootable multiple times before?06:05

Jordan_UAnt13: So every time you've installed Ubuntu since 9.10 it has taken what was a working Windows install and made it unbootable?06:06
jordan_brightspark, i got it, i entered conky in my decorations window and messed it up06:06
jordan_i got them back now06:06
JuNeX@MTecknology i have right click the folder i want to share and after a click on the create button this error comes out06:06
brightsparkjordan_: glad to hear it06:06
jordan_brightspark, do u know how to get rid of the shadow outline around conky06:07
Ant13Jordan_U : history since 9.10 = install windows / boot windows / install ubuntu / boot ubuntu and update it / after restart windows would only go to loading screen then restart06:07
Ant13Jordan_U : this happened with every version since 9.1006:07
Jordan_UAnt13: Did you use manual partitioning or automatic?06:08
jordan_brightspark,  haha nvm, i got it, entered conky in the shadow box06:08

ericyAnt13: Or did you, from within windows, run wubi.exe?06:10
Ant13ericy: tried it too, wubi works, but by the time i install it on a separate partition (hence neither side by side nor  as app) windows wont boot06:10

weiaAnt13: looks like grub2's mbr code is incompatible with windows. use another.06:15
Ant13bJordan_U: i said it, it happened lol, did you say anything?06:16
Jordan_UAnt13: There you installed Ubuntu in a partition closer to the beginning of the drive than Windows, which is not done by the automatic partitioner. 1:It looks like it changed the partition number for Windows which Windows doesn't handle very well 2: It means that Windows (rather than Ubuntu) will be vulnerable to BIOS bugs where the BIOS can't properly handle large drives.06:16
sacarlsonAnt13: I think what it might be is that windows likes to be in the first partition,  in your case you have it installed at sda2.  you would think it should work but in the future I would try install it in sda1 and see if you have better luck06:16
Ant13bJordan_U, Sacarlson : that was one of my tries, i often install win in sda1 and ubuntu in sda2-3 sorry if that was incorrect, it was by the time i asked on ubuntu forums06:17
Ant13bJordan_U : booting from windows dvd and using bootrec /fixboot and chkdsk fixes it (at times)06:18
crlcan81what the flying..06:18
Jordan_UAnt13b: If possible, to make things easier to debug, could you do a standard Windows install (all defaults) and a standard Ubuntu install (using automatic partititioning but obviously choosing to keep Windows)?06:19
weiaAnt13: when you install ubuntu it should let you choose between a) install grub on mbr (like /dev/sda) b) install grub on linux partition (like /dev/sda2). if you pick b) you can later use any multibooting mbr code to chainload sda2. if you pick a) you might be stuck with grub06:20
AcrimoniousGoronI installed the ubuntu studio package into ubuntu 10.10 and when I open fonrforge it opens in a really tiny window. even if i maximize it the folders look like the size they would be on a 2" screen06:20
Ant13bJordan_U: depends, are you asking me if i could do it generally (then yes) or asking me to do it right now?06:21
Jordan_UAnt13b: I'm hoping that you could do it now or some time later and I could follow up via email or on a bug report. If there is a bug I'm going to do what I can to find it and get it fixed.06:22
panfisti could boot the 10.10 livecd with 'nomodeset' boot option, but now that i've installed it and tried to boot of the disk, it hangs right after "checking battery status"06:22
Ant13bweia: tried both of them06:22
Ant13bweia: even though its rather odd that prior to 9.10 it used to work (9.10 added grub2)06:22
AcrimoniousGoronI installed the ubuntu studio package into ubuntu 10.10 and when I open fonrforge it opens in a really tiny window. even if i maximize it the folders look like the size they would be on a 2" screen06:23
sacarlsonAnt13b: I don't see anything from the bootscript that would make it not work.  I'm sure you hold shift and try the windows boot and that must be where you see the error06:23
Jordan_UAnt13b: bootrec /fixboot is needed when the beginning of your Windows system partition is changed (which shouldn't happen with a default Ubuntu install).06:23
Ant13bJordan_U: it would take a while but yes i may do, windows 7 and ubuntu 10.10 would be fine? and what kind of informations would you need? (just to know what to get)06:23
Ant13bsacarlson: im rather ignorant about windows, didnt even know holding shift would do anything so i never did06:24
sacarlsonAnt13b: holding shift will get you control of the grub2 loader so you can choose what you want to boot06:25
Jordan_UAnt13b: Windows 7 would be ideal. The output of boot info script would include everything I can think of.06:25
weiaAnt13b: you picked b) and it broke windows?06:25
v_vj #debian06:25
Ant13bsacarlson: ok got it , its from grub, thought you meant once booted windows, in that case i choose win from there and it crashes06:25
Ant13bweia: both did06:25
meanwhat is lo that ifconfig display?06:25
Ant13bJordan_U: sure, getting what i need, do i have to use desktop cd or would alternate be the same (i prefer using alternate due to graphic card issues but if you say desktop ill go for it06:26
brightsparkmean: loopback06:27
weiaAnt13b: after you pick b) and you make the windows partition the "active" partition again, it should boot unharmed (no grub screen showing)06:27
Ant13bJordan_U: it just came to my mind, if i remove ubuntu or just /fixmbr everything will work normally, may just be a useless info06:27
Jordan_UAnt13b: The alternate install would be fine.06:27

Ant13bJordan_U: what one? the fixmbr thing i just told you?06:28
Jordan_UAnt13b: Yes.06:28

Ant13bweia: oh yes right, i got you, doesnt work though06:28

Jordan_UAnt13b: Ok, can you get the machine in this state fairly easily?06:31
Ant13bJordan_U: pardon?06:31
sacarlsonAnt13b: I am assuming that ubuntu does boot ok am I wrong?06:31
Jordan_UAnt13b: Can you get things setup so that the Ubuntu partition is still there but you have run fixboot /mbr so that Windows just boots?06:32
Ant13bsacarlson: depends where we were, install windows then install ubuntu and use ubuntu? yes ubuntu has no problems at all, even after i /fixboot it boots ok works ok no problems, if i fixmbr grub doesnt show06:32
weiaAnt13b: 1) zero out first 1mb of disk; 2) install windows in sda1; 3) install ubuntu in sda2, careful to install grub to sda2 (not sda); 4) make sda1 the active partition; 5) no grub menu shows, the computer boots right into windows, and it's broken?? i don't believe it06:32
Ant13bJordan_U: are you asking me to do it right now? partition table is a lil messed but things are actually that way (i needed windows to update my phone so i had to /fixmbr)06:32
Ant13bweia: if i do it that way grub shows but if i choose windows it will crash06:33
Jordan_UAnt13b: Great. Can you burn a Super GRUB2 Disk CD or install grub to a flash drive for some testing?06:33
brightsparkmean: I'm not a big network techie but from what I understand it lets the computer recieve messages it sends itself, which is more secure than some other methods.06:34
victorhugo289guys, I have a problem, I need to resize a FAT-32 partition, I want to grow it bigger06:34
sacarlsonAnt13b: and you never changed to sequence or point your bios to boot from something other than sda ?06:34
Ant13bJordan_U: if you are goin to ask me to install grub, wouldnt the alternate ubuntu cd be the same? (im just guessing)06:34
victorhugo289But what I need to know is...06:34
Jordan_UAnt13b: No, it uses isolinux.06:34

Jordan_UAnt13b: What I would like to do is now that you're in a configuration where you know that the Windows side of things is setup correctly, to try booting Windows from grub (without installing grub to the internal hard drive, instead installing it to a CD/USB drive).06:37
brightsparkvictorhugo289: anytime you fiddle with partitions, you ought to back stuff up.06:37
mykalhi all. i know this might not be the place, but getting ubuntu to stream to xbax via ushare. anyone here happen to have it working???06:38
weiaAnt13b: oh well. then something on the linux side _insists_ on overwriting the mbr bootcode. you could inspect snapshots of the mbr at various points to catch the violator.06:38
overriderI am having trouble with my 10.04 samba installation. How can i completely remove it, then reinstall it? apt-get purge does not do it, because it leaves /etc/samba and other files in place. Manually removing those also bad, because then a reinstall will not recreate those default files. What gives? Thanks06:38
Ant13bJordan_U: probably it doesnt matter, but to fetch something from my old ubuntu install i used wubi, gone from win bootloader to grub and booted into linux (supposed to work and so it did) would it be the same if instead of choosing linux from there id choose linux (i have wubi installed as app)06:38
brightsparkvictorhugo289: but I have shrunk and moved FAT32 partitions without problems.  (never grown one, sorry)06:39
victorhugo289I know @brightspark, and I'm prepared for the worst, but I've been very lucky so far.06:39
Ant13bweia: grub2 bullying windows lol06:39

dustinso anyone know alot about mudlibs thats on right now ?06:44
weiaAnt13b: looks like grub2's chainloading into windows from the grub menu is plainly broken. i think windows has a fixmbr or so, and i think you can get windows into shape so it lets you choose between windows and grub at boot.06:44

cosmoI know in win7 I can link folders to my library folders like video or music, can I do the same in ubuntu and if so how?06:47

Ant13Jordan_U: and it restarts06:48
Ant13Jordan_U: it just restarted after win logo06:48
weiaAnt13: yes, that's what i meant. if windows is compromised, then so is your linux partition if the malware author wants that. the question which bootloader is loading which is a sham.06:48

weiaJordan_U: windows could always try to detect the presence of grub in the load chain and refuse to work. that's an unfixable situation. whatever grub's authors are doing to fix the user experience, the next windows live update can break it again.07:06

Gryllidahow do I install mono 2.8 ? latest one in the repo is 2.6.7 only07:07
syn-ackGryllida, you can either try looking for a development PPA or you'd probably have to grab the source from the mono project.07:07
cosmoI know in win7 I can link folders to my library folders without copying the files to it so it is easy to access media from various folders and drives like video or music, can I do the same in ubuntu and if so how?07:08
Gryllidasyn-ack, I didn't find a ppa07:08
Jordan_Uweia: I've never heard of Windows overwriting the MBR on upgrades (though Photoshop and other software with idiotic DRM is known to write to the boot track all the time). And I've seen no evidence that Windows has overwritten ant13's mbr (except when he told it to) so I don't see how that's relevant.07:08
Gryllidacosmo, nautilus, add to bookmark07:08
syn-ackGryllida, you'll probably have to grab the source, deps and headers and compile it yourself then07:08

meanI couldnt use startupmanage to switch kernel ,who can help me out?07:10
brightsparkmean:   Hm, that's not the intended behavior.  you can try renaming files in /etc/grub.d until they are in alphanumeric order matching the order you want to see in GRUB07:10
PrinlerAnyone have any experience with Mediatomb? When i click on my media in windows all it does is send me the file. I want it to stream not just "host" files....07:10
weiaJordan_U: we're not talking about someone overwriting the mbr. it's about windows refusing to boot (intentionally or not) if grub was in the load chain.07:10
meanbrightspark, i thought you have gone07:11
Jordan_Uweia: Then I don't see what Windows Live has to do with anything.07:11
meanbrightspark, i try it now07:11
brightsparkmean: sorry wrong directory!  don't fiddle with that, I'll get the right one in a minute07:11
weiaJordan_U: why not? you suggested to get a new version of grub to fix this. i said don't ever let grub get into the load chain if you intend to boot windows. you're not getting what Windows Live has to do with that?07:12
meanbrightspark,  in /boot/grub ?07:12
meanbrightspark,  grub.cfg?07:12
Jordan_Uweia: If this is the bug that I am thinking about then upgrading will be a permanent fix.07:13
weiaJordan_U: upgrading _what_? grub? it can be _outpaced_ by the next Windows Live update. still don't get it?07:13
brightsparkmean: not quite, your changes will be overwritten if you edit that.07:15
Jordan_Uweia: Yes, update grub. This is a bug in grub that has affected all versions of Windows since Vista, it's just that it's a bug in features that are never used in normal situations (hence why it has lasted so long, it affected almost no one).07:15
Jordan_Uweia: Features of grub that is.07:16

cosmonope that didnt do it, nautilus trys to add the whole drive, I have video, audio and documents stored in folders on other drives in catagories and sub-catagories in win 7 I could just add them to library folders in explorer without having to copy them to the main drive this made accessing them convient and I was hoping to do the same in ubuntu but not sure how (would like to have links to them in the home folder where it already has catagories07:21
cosmolike documents, music, video, etc.)07:21
brightsparkmean: Okay, so by changing the value of GRUB_DEFAULT, you can make the cursor start in a different position.  0 for the top, 1 for the next, and so forth.07:22

Jordan_UAnt13: While I've installed grub-efi before I've never tested what the Ubuntu installer does when installing to an EFI based system. Make sure you grab the 64 bit Ubuntu CD and the worst that can happen is that it doesn't install grub-efi automatically and you'll have to ask for help on that from #grub. (Just trying to clarify that installing grub-pc on a system with EFI firmware will not hurt anything).07:53
Ant13Jordan_U: so i cant use a 32 bit version? :O07:54
Jordan_UAnt13: No, with EFI the Firmware and the OS need to be the same architecture (unless you do really ugly hacks in the kernel like Apple does in XNU but is not likely to be accepted in Linux).07:55

The firewall is managed using the 'ufw' command - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UFW | An alternative to ufw is the 'iptables' command - See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/IptablesHowTo | GUI frontends such as Firestarter/Gufw (Gnome) or Guarddog (KDE) also exist.08:33

llutzajmal: "Connection refused" means "nothing listens on this port"09:00
ajmal[duepi] How can i resolve this problem09:00
aciculaajmal: connection refused means you were able to reach the host, but the connection was rejected. This can happen because there is not a service running at that port/ip, or because of firewall rules rejecting connections to that service09:01

aciculaiamaregee2: ussually adding it to .bashrc or .profile in your home is enough, unless you need the variables to apply system wide, see the wikipage i linked for details09:16
aciculaiamaregee2: also be sure not to just blindly do make install as root, as by default most programs will dump their files in with the system files, which is typically not what you want09:18

CoNFuS3Dgives me this: /usr/bin/gnome-session11:04
Billybob3acicula-ok am doing now...11:04
genewitchCoNFuS3D: it's a matter of editing the config for the login screen i imagine. I'd start googling that. that's my slightly more helpful answer.11:04

tnmanybody know what does the decimal points for program mens, like program version 1.2.3 stand for: "1" in the program version, "2" is the version of upgrade and "3" is version of update?11:06
genewitchtnm: major.minor.build-revision ubuntu 10 is the major, 10.10 is major.minor, for instance.11:07
kishwould be great if you could help..11:07
aciculanot really, for ubuntu the 10.10 just refers to the year/date more then anything11:07
genewitchacicula: i didn't want to cite windows NT version numbers. or mac OS. mac os X has 10 in front of the major number (currently 5) followed by minor (currently 2 or something) so mac os X 10.5.211:08
Pumpkin-tnm: different programs do numbering differently. No really accepted common standards.11:08
genewitchPumpkin-: vaguely off topic but it's probably because there's no standard concurrent versioning system adopted by the community, as the good ones do versioning automatically.11:09
iceroottnm: 10.10 means year 20(10) month 10. so its 10.10. ubuntu 8.04 was release 200(8) in april (04), so its 8.0411:09
aciculagenewitch: verion numbering is done at the discretion of the developer or marketing (team). the only real convention is that higher means newer11:10

billybob3acicula- it's hard to tell if that new driver is making alot of difference to anything but not worse anyway (lol). Isn't it just possible to get rid of the nvidia-96, nvidiafb, nouveau drivers and install the driver that worked on previous prior to 10.04?11:17

ghisenHi, i had problems removing fglrx... so i removed every line with fglrx in var/lib/dpkg/diversions as google said... but now i get an other error instead..  conflicting diversions involving `/branding-ubuntu' or `/usr/share/dockmanager/data/skype_dnd.svg'15:08
Roasted_Is it possible to remove individual Ubuntu updates?15:08
liminalthe web  browser15:08
madmax_x so i have a race condition here with my network ...after a power failure.... my ubuntu box boots before the dhcp server does...is there a way to have nm-applet or /etc/networking auto retry dhcp after a timed delay?15:09
sipiorliminal: seems fairly random. does the same thing happen if you run applications from a live cd?15:09
JuJuBeeIs it possible to set a desktop picture and not allow users to change it?15:09
arch_nmecan anyone tell me where the printer settings are located from the GUI?15:09
elFidelRoasted_: it is possible to remove single packages if thats your question15:09
liminalive not tried.. what would it prove?15:09
Roasted_elFidel, yeah. I had to remove some windows updates yesterday from my w7 box to get back nvidia functionality (don't ask, I have no idea). And I got to wondering if you can remove individual updates with ubuntu as well.15:10
erUSULJuJuBee: search in google for « gnome lockdown kiosk mode »15:10
DannydHi, I installed sl, then $sudo apt-get --purge remove sl, after that when I type sl, it dosent list the packages it may be in, it just says "not in /usr/bin/games", how do i completely remove a package??15:10
drcodePici, pre-released is only for upgrade? I have installed ubuntu 10.1015:11

ruanhey. how do i record from my speakers? sound recorder stalls at 0 seconds, and audacity records at an extremely low volume which i have to amplify by 27.5 dB just to barely hear15:11
elFidelRoasted_: it is possible to remove single packages if thats your question. apt will handle the dependencies. So in general possible - but its related with package-dependencies15:11
Dannydi installed by apt-get install sl15:11
erUSULJuJuBee: yes15:11
drcodebut I have problem with an old nvidia and xorg driver15:11
fanthomaswhere does xfce in ubutu get the available graphic modes from? sometime the max resolution in xrandr is 1024x600 which is correct and sometimes only 800x60015:11
erUSULJuJuBee: also ask in #kubuntu ?15:11
genii-aroundmadmax_x: You could try setting in /etc/dhcp/dhclient.conf  the variables: retry, timeout, and select-timeout  to higher values15:11
drcodeI read that nvidia mx200 not working well with ubuntu 10.1015:11

sipiorliminal: the idea is to see if the problem lies with the system as installed, or with your hardware.15:12

madmax_xsipor, genii-around, i tried the retry setting but it doesnt seem to apply when using nm-applet to manage the network...it still sits "down" until i physically interact with it and tell nm-applet to try 'auto eth0'15:13
Guest13990is anyone available to help me  out here?15:13
ruanGuest13990: yes...15:13
Roasted_elFidel, how would you go about that? Like if I found a specific update that was causing an issue, where are the individual updates stored?15:13
madmax_xwassup Guest1399015:13
Dannydbump on the apt-get --purge remove question15:13
sipiorGuest13990: usual protocol is to ask a question first.15:13
Guest13990I am having trouble with my sound15:13
ruanhey. how do i record from my speakers? sound recorder and audacity aren't working properly15:13
Guest13990it used to work but I couldn't get headphones to work so I installed drivers and now nothing15:14
liminallive cd still uses hardware.. just not harddrives15:14
Roasted_elFidel, like if I updated with 10 new updates and I have a problem, how would I get those 10 updates out?15:14
elFidelRoasted_: it's all package based - so check Ubuntu-software-center or synaptic to handle packages15:14
liminaland ive changed the harddrive15:14
ruanliminal: livecd can still mount harddrives15:14
Roasted_elFidel, so 10 updates = 10 packages?15:14
DannydHi, I installed sl, then $sudo apt-get --purge remove sl, after that when I type sl, it dosent list the packages it may be in, it just says "not in /usr/bin/games", how do i completely remove a package??15:14
sipiormadmax_x: the interfaces man page implies that the individual application config files are used for dhcp services. do you perhaps have multiple dhcp clients installed?15:15
liminalso what would running ubuntu from the livecd tell me.. my guess it still would crash15:15
ruanDannyd: reinstall it then uninstall it15:15
elFidelRoasted_: i dont know what you mean - as you are still talking about updates ;)15:15
Dannydso that it was in the state b4 the package was installed15:15
sipiorliminal: the idea is to see if system ram is a problem.15:15
Roasted_elFidel, you're saying updates are package based. Does that mean if I get 10 updates, there are 10 new packages in synaptic?15:15
sipiorliminal: or perhaps a misconfigured installation.15:15
liminallive cd uses ram more right? so it would crash more?15:15
elFidelRoasted_: in theory you could try removing/uninstalling those packages & then try to install the old versions again.15:15
sipiorliminal: no.15:16
liminallive cd doesnt use ram?15:16
sipiorliminal: of course it does.15:16
elFidelbut thats a) related with handling dpeendencies and for sure nothing a starter should do (from my point of view)15:16
Roasted_elFidel, so if I have an issue with an apache update, I can nuke apache --purge and reinstall and it should come back without the updates?15:16
Guest13990this is my first time here. I just installed ubuntu this weekend15:16
elFidelRoasted_: apt will offer the last version on reinstall - so it will most likely not fix that issue15:16
OerHeksliminal live cd boots slower, and uses ram. but it is as stable as an installated linux15:16
madmax_xsipior, i have a plain install of 10.04...nm-applet (networkmanager) controls it15:17
liminalim confused.. lets say I use a live cd and the system doesnt crash.. that would prove what?15:17
Roasted_elFidel, hm, I'm still a little lost on *how* its possible to remove an update then.15:17
liminalits my installation process not hardwarE?15:17

sipiorliminal: we are trying to establish if your hardware is at fault.15:19
naren_can i edit login screen to my own15:19
genii-aroundmadmax_x: Alternately, you could add a pre-start script stanza into /etc/init/network-manager.conf to check for a ping reply from dhcp server, wait a certain amount of seconds, try again until a reply, then continue only after a reply comes15:19
sipiorliminal: i have explained this before.15:19
ptteliminal: Ofc you'd have to use the live cs on the same computer15:19
OerHeksGuest13990, do you hear a login sound at boot ?15:19
sipiormadmax_x: what happens if you configure the network interface through /etc/network/interfaces?15:19
Guest13990wait.......I'm not sure now15:20

ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.16:20
