Phong_after it reboot, i got this error: Try hd(0,0): NTFS5: No wubildr01:30

Phong_all i did was mount the .iso and install within windows01:31

willYou tried to install 10.10 or 11.04?01:32
mjngeneral props to the open-source community!!01:32
Phong_x32 bit01:32
mjny'all are great...!01:32
willThat is why.01:32
willStick with 10.04 for now.01:32
willOr even do a distro upgrade THROUGH 10.04.01:32
mjngo on a windows forum, and a lot of folks are a little uppity...01:32
willDon't manually install it with the ISO.01:32
Phong_oh, so u'll telling me to install 10.04 ?01:32
Phong_and then do upgrade?01:32
willThe main Squash filessystem is a little screwy in 10.10 and 11.04 at teh moment.01:33
mjnbut y'all take it in stride, even when my ??'s are incredibly stupid...thanks again!01:33
willYou more than likely will never get them installed. D=01:33
Yoinxyeah, you could always just get virtualbox and install ubuntu in there if you wanted to try it out from windows01:33
mjnas they often/always are (see above, re: incredibly stupid)..01:33
YoinxI'm assuming you are since you're trying to use wubi01:34
Yoinxmjn, there's no such thing as a stupid question... Since you were smart enough to ask.01:34
Phong_ok,ill download 10.0401:35
mjnsee, that's what i'm talkin about...thanks again...01:35
Phong_i'll do it and did it, and done it. ;)01:35
willI appoligize i didn't catch your question "mjn". I was probably paying attention to my son when you typed it in.01:35
lariousPhong_: why dont you download 10.1001:36
lariousgnome : How are yu doing01:37
gnomeI want to have tcpdump's output to be a little cleaner.01:37
willlarious: I recommended him to install 10.04 and do a Distro upgrade from within due to the Squashfs and Wubi being corrupted in the new ISO's.01:37
mjnwill, wasn't a question....i just noticed a lot of good behavior in the open source community...have benefited from the helpful attitudes of it's denizens, and want to encourage said behavior with a general shoutout/express my gratitude that there are places like this to go for help..01:38
gnomeI want to parse it...01:38
willmjn: Oh, it sounded like you asked a question and never got a reply, haha.01:38
bashzshI'm curious about this command (NOT TO BE RUN): sudo apt-get --purge remove [icecat]  If run with bash, it tries to delete about 6gb of packages on my machine. Why does it find so many? If run on zsh, it is "no matches found [icecat]". I'm guessing bash recognizes that as a regular expression?01:38
gnomeMore importantly, I need to upload via php01:38
gnomeI would probally upload the log, and use explode to manipulate the output.01:39
lariouswill: I have 10.04 and am having a problem that is why I am thiking of better upgrading to 10.10, no one yet solve my problem01:39
gnomeHow would I use ftp to upload a log? Also, can i rotate the log for tcpdump?01:39
willlarious:I would recommend a Distro upgrade from within your Update Manager rather than installing from the ISO.01:41

willBut then again. Formatting into EXT3 may let you install it from boot-up like normal. I know installation from Wubi inside Windows on Distros 10.10-11.04 comes out in two ways.01:42
Phong_ok i need to reboot01:42
Phong_be back01:42

herooh i think maybe you can change the shell pyrofallout?03:15
heroi think its in /etc/passwd03:15
heroyou should check that user and check the shell03:16
dr_Willisyou set your prompt via the PS1 variable. thers doezns of examples out there/  it maybe its not using bash, or its not running the .bash* init scripts03:16
ljsoftnethow do i hide text messages during boot and shutdown?03:16
hero$ usually is /bin/sh03:16
heroand change it to /bin/bash03:16
herois that correct dr_Willis?03:17
dr_Willisbest to use the chsh command to change you shell :)03:17

panfistoooooookkkkkk time to throw out this dvd-rom04:09
niteshadewhat about kernel source?04:09
edbianniteshade, Sure, but don't try to read the source code if you don't know how to program :)04:09
niteshadewell, if you don't change anything04:09
niteshadebut, i know a functional amount of C and python.04:10
edbianniteshade, You can download the source and edit it all you want.  It won't make a difference because you have to compile that source to run the code.04:10
MrBubblesi just tried using unetbootin but it does not support ubuntu studio 10.10, is there a way to upgrade though terminal?04:10
=== mohammad is now known as Guest89415
edbianniteshade, The linux kernel is just another package.  I don't know which one off the top of my head.04:11
nit-witMrBubbles, did you try just loading the 10.10 iso04:11
StrykerMrBubbles, apt-get install update04:11
niteshadeyeah.  So, for example if i see a security hole in a program like xchat that could lead to a root exploit (just pulling the scenario outta my ass) and if i can fix it, then how do i compile that fix so that my computer becomes safer?04:12
niteshadedoes it come with a makefile, or just the source?04:12
niteshadeor, what gcc arguments04:12
=== will_ is now known as rreal
edbianniteshade, It should come with a make file.04:13
niteshadesee ya.04:13
overcluckerniteshade: you can get the source of a package with apt-get source,04:14
trismniteshade: you can also rebuild an updated package: http://www.moosechips.com/2008/09/ubuntu-rebuild-a-source-package/04:14
edbianniteshade, Then you compile that new version of the code and use it instead of your current version. It's probably a better idea to notify the developers about the bug fix though04:14
niteshadeyeah.  Wait, what if i had a booby trap for hackers hard-coded into the program?04:15
niteshadeheh heh04:15
Strykeryou would invent an antihack04:15
edbianniteshade, What if you added it?  Then the developers wouldn't accept your bug fix.  (Nobody would accept your new version without looking at the code)04:15
needlezhi, how can I set a qouta for a file??  like a limit on how many megabytes the file can be, and after that amount it will overwrite the first line?? any ideas?04:15
overcluckerniteshade: opensource . . .04:15
niteshadei've always told people that the joy of open source is that if you don't like something about your OS, you can change it if you know how04:16
niteshadenow, i can learn how04:17

bawniowhat is kickstart?04:20
zeleftikamokay, i installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. How do i get it to net-update to 10.10 now?04:20
niteshadebawnio: i think i read about this, some math dude in a magazine i read said that the longer a blog got, the probability of a hitler reference approaches 104:20
Strykeri have read the same exact article04:20
bawnioi did too04:21
zeleftikami did all the updates in Update Manager, restarted, and checked for updates again and there aren't any. is there something i have to do to get it to check for 10.10?04:21
pylixneedlez: do you have any programming background?04:21
bawnioi read an article that said something about justin bieber references, but this is a bit off topic04:21
edbianzeleftikam, Go to System -> Admin -> Software sources. Change the drop down from LTS releases to normal releases and try again in the update manager04:21
zeleftikamedbian, will do. thanks04:22
randomuserbawnio, kickstart is a script for setting up an unattended install and also your mom is off topic04:22
needlezpylix: not much, just want to set a folder or file to have a limit for it. can I do it with just a simple command like setquota??04:22
rwwzeleftikam: What edbian said. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MaverickUpgrades has all the details.04:22
zeleftikamthanks guys! :)04:22
edbianzeleftikam, Did it work?04:22
zeleftikamedbian, yes sir. i got the upgrade dialogue going now :)04:22
bawniorandomuser i have never heard the unattended installs being called kickstart04:23
zeleftikamdidn't realise 10.10 is not an LTS04:23
edbianzeleftikam, Awesome, be warned it takes a long time.  Like several hours04:23
edbianzeleftikam, LTS is once every 3 years04:23

FirefisheI'm using 10.04 -- I'm having an issue with certain programs with embedded links.  They seem to like to open konqueror for the web browser, and this causes konqueror to mutate into a runaway process, spawning endless windows.  What might be my problem?06:57
hipitihopa networking question: If I have wireless router bridged ---> main router with dhcp/linux all on same subnet 192.168.0.x and I want to allow one wireless laptop onboard but restrict it to only see internet not rest of network, how can I do that06:57
neil_dActionParsnip: well it did with only a 'continue' button in it... but when I clicked on that it said there was a 'OpenId' failure of some kind.06:57
Jordan_UMithran: /dev/null is nothing, basically an empty file when reading from it (and a black hole when writing to it). /dev/zero outputs all zeroes.06:57
Mithranis /dev/zero a black hole when writing to? and how do I stop it?06:58
tanathFirefishe, not sure why konq is having a fit, but you can change your default browser..06:58
Jordan_UMithran: ctrl+C06:58
neil_dMithran: you input runs out...06:59
Ben64Mithran: /dev/null is a black hole06:59
Mithranfor instance i want to see the contents of the file after doing a /dev/zero, but it just hangs06:59
Jordan_UMithran: And you'll probably want to delete the file that you just created as it's probably multiple GiB large by now.06:59
Firefishetanath:  firefox  is my default browser...konqueror shouldn't even open.06:59
Mithranit is i just checked06:59
Ben64Mithran: what are you trying to do?06:59
Mithrancan i see the contents06:59
tanathMithran, /dev/null sends nothing. /dev/zero sends zeros... and will continue until you ctrl+c it or whatever06:59
Firefishetanath: The sofware with which I'm having a problem is pokerth 0.8.x.  I'm wondering if those links are hard-coded to open konqueror.07:00
Jordan_UMithran: Think of /dev/zero as an infinitely large file containing all zero bits.07:00
tanathFirefishe, there are multiple places default browser can be set.. (ie., multiple defaults) but if it's embedded stuff, check firefoxs application settings for file types & such07:00
neil_dMithran: /dev/zero is an endless source of zeros ... so "cat /dev/zero > a" followed by a hexdump of "hd a" should show things07:00
tanathFirefishe, pokerth has it's own settings for browser07:00
Firefishetanath: This issue with konqueror has been going on for some time now.  I haven't checked the bug list in a while, though.07:01
tanathFirefishe, when you said 'embedded' i thought you mean embedded in a web page. that's not the same07:01

mangohi room07:19
Ryan__syrinx_, iiicyg mkay. thanks a lot guys! i'll come back here if i run into problems.07:19
Jordan_URyan__: The main cause of the Ubuntu installer listing a drive as unpartitioned is an invalid partition table. If you do have an invalid partition table then that needs to be fixed before you do any other partitioning of the disk to prevent data loss. "sudo parted -l" will tell you if you have an invalid partition table and what exactly the problem is, like overlapping partitions.07:19
guatanath: ohh hey. awesome! thanks. i should have looked there, i just assumed07:19
iiicygRyan__, welcome :-)07:19
tanathgua, mhm. works with username or uid07:20

minimeclarious: The problem might be, that your sim card in the Huawei dongle is PIN protected. You might have to put this sim card into a phone and disable that PIN identification. That's all. The network-manager software doesn't give you the possibility to identify you with the PIN. --> Again, disable PIN on the sim card.10:54

b0yceim back and on ubuntu 10.0411:14
b0yceso what do i do now?11:15
B9juk: it is like it opens two Banshee applications at the same time and then has a dialogue box  that says "Fatal Error ~ Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation."11:15
Cosmojuk, it is still in the text interface11:15

fruitwerkshow do I git this? http://git.openvz.org/pub/linux-2.6.32-openvz/11:16
goddardyou say git gimmie11:16
minimecB9: I would first try to rename the banshee-1 folder in your /home/yourname/.config folder. That would start a clean banshee session with system default configuration.11:16

tombaughHi all... Is there a way to manually disconnect devices such as ttyACM0? I'm using an application that doesn't exit properly, so the port number keeps increasing ach time I reconnect the device.11:18
Cosmojuk, the output was nvidia       8097831    011:18
menawhen i shut-down my machine , it's hanging11:18
jukCosmo: and X output gives what?11:19
soreautombaugh: probably have to look into udev rules11:21
menamy com is hanging when i try shutdown11:21
b0yceActionParsnip,  u there?11:21
B9minimec: that has done well. thank u. I renamed folder & opened it and now it is rescanning library11:22
Cosmojuk,  when I typed X it said Failed to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0)  no drivers available11:22
soreauCosmo: mv or rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf11:23
b0ycecan anyone else pls try and help me with my sound?11:23

b0yceand where's that? i have only just loaded ubuntu on the cd. i am a noob at this11:26
jukCosmo: sucks, try manually going into /usr/src/nvidia-current-* ; and type: make module; make install11:27
Slartibartsoreau: But that would make an OR condition, right? What if I have to find the files with say 4 given words in them, in any order?11:27
menai have problem? my computer is hanging when i try shutdown11:27
B9minimec: stellar advice I will remember. does it matter what you rename it too? how does this work particular what does it do? I like to know what is going on behind the scene as well11:28
soreauSlartibart: You might have to write a small oneliner bash script depending on what you want to do exactly11:28
cosmo_there now I have my desktop back11:28
soreaucosmo_: compiz --replace and metacity --replace11:29
soreaucosmo_: one wm replaces the other11:29
jribSlartibart: on the same line?11:29
Slartibartsoreau: Thought so.. Thanks.11:29
soreauSlartibart: #bash if you need bash specific help11:30
juksoreau: do you have that config removed, im not sure if it's needed by nvidia, mine in there11:31
cosmo_soreau, I dont have metacity installed only compiz it was nvidia drivers that caused it11:31
minimecB9: When you start a software for the first time, it will launch with system defaults (Sometimes they are stored in /etc, sometimes in /usr/share/). Afterwards the software will always start with your personal configuration stored in some .xy folder or .xyrc file in your /home/yourname directory. removing that folder or file will force the software to create a new personal config file starting with the system defaults.11:32
soreaujuk: Right now, you probably dont have nvidia-commo installed, but your conf file is set to use the nvidia driver11:32
soreaujuk: So either install the driver or use nouveau (which should be the default without a conf file)11:33
raviepic3people i own a laptop with ubuntu 10, 64 bit on it. people say they can reset my root password without my access11:33
raviepic3is this possible ?11:33
raviepic3if yes what should i do or learn to do to avoid this ?11:33
ActionParsnip!noroot | raviepic311:33
ubotturaviepic3: We do not support setting a root password. You're free to do it on your own machine, but please don't offer instructions on how to set a root password or ask for help with setting it. See !root and !wfm for more information.11:33
soreauraviepic3: What people are telling you this?11:33
jribraviepic3: if they have physical access to the machine they can do that sure (with any unencrypted OS)11:34
juksoreau: no, i have nvidia enabled11:34
soreaujuk: Do you have nvidia-common installed?11:34
raviepic3soreau, friends when i talk about linux vs windows11:34
cosmo_so since I screwed up that instalation what is the correct way to install the newest nvidia drivers?11:34
Loransi get error that my computer hangs when i shut-down it11:34
juksoreau: yes11:34
soreauraviepic3: Id be willing to wager they dont know what theyre talking about11:34
soreaujuk: And you still get the message no drivers when starting X? Try reinstalling it?11:35
raviepic3jrib, how to restrict this ? even if they have physical access to my machine they should not be in a position to do it ?11:35
jribraviepic3: use encryption11:35
juksoreau: nvidia acceleration works, just wondering if that config no needed anymore11:35
raviepic3jrib, any links to read more about it ? encrypt what ? where ? how ?11:35
ActionParsnipjuk: try: sudo dpkg-reconfigure dkms11:35

=== denny_ is now known as denny
juksoreau: why then you suggested to op to remove it?11:36
ActionParsnipjuk: you may need to run: sudo nvidia-xconfic  to generate an xorg.conf (as soreau says) if your monitor is not reporting edid as it should11:36
soreaujuk: If you didnt have nvidia installed and you just wanted to get into X, its an easy way11:36
raviepic3soreau, challenging them with a known vulnerability is a heavy risk to take, isnt it ! ?11:37
jukActionParsnip: thanks11:37
soreauraviepic3: Its not a known vulnerability11:37
adaxwhat could the cause be of my laptop fan being on high permanently? Even when starting up from a cold laptop.. it's making a lot of noise.11:37
soreauActionParsnip: I said rm or mv, not nvidia-xconfig11:37
raviepic3soreau, any idea where can i learn more about to avoid this ?11:38
jribraviepic3: encrypt everything.  It's up to you to decide if it's worth it to you.  Personally, I only encrypt data that I wouldn't want people to obtain in case my laptop is stolen (my home).  But if you are truly paranoid and don't mind the performance hit, go for your whole system.  You have to decide if it's worth it to you.  For most, it's probably not11:38
cosmo_to install the most recent nvidia drivers do I use the additional drivers app and choose current or what?11:38
juksougata: ah, OK11:38
minimecB9: The name of the config file is normally given by the software, so just changing the name to 'something' is normally enough. Some software might allow you to start with a given configuration file, like  'irssi --config=~/.irssi/myconfig'11:38
soreauraviepic3: google or ##linux11:38
soreauadax: Probably graphics driver driving the card carelessly11:38
soreaucosmo_: yes11:39

adimitOK, so I've about had it with shoddy pulseaudio; now it's not letting me unmute. It starts out muted, I unmute. For a second or so, I'll hear some sound, and then it's gonna mute again. I can spam the unmute button, and then I can hear my audio choppily. WHAT THE …? Anyone knows what's going on?11:39
raviepic3jrib, from your words i understand he can reset the password and enter into my system but will not be able to take data if encrypted ?! but my question is cant be prevent the entry part itself ?11:39
soreauadax: Then it doesnt have anything to do with ubuntu. Try ##hardware11:39
adimitGoogling doesn't help. Alsa does. Why am I even keeping Pulseaudio again?11:40
soreauadimit: You can remove it11:40
soreau! pulseaudio | adimit11:40
ubottuadimit: PulseAudio is a sound server intended as a drop-in replacement for !ESD - See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PulseAudio for information and installation instructions11:40
soreauand removal instructions11:40
adimitsoreau: at which point everything starts to crash and burn, because Ubuntu is expecting pluse to actually be there (i.e. all the default applications.)11:41
adaxoh ok  thanks11:41
soreauadimit: No one is forcing you to use ubuntu11:41
jribraviepic3: you can set a grub password, make sure your laptop does not boot from anything but the hard drive, set a bios password, but none of this prevents your friend from removing the hard drive, accessing it, then putting it back in your laptop11:41
adimityeah, I kinda dread having to reinstall my system, But that's where it's going...11:41
adimitSo I figure, no one here knows the issue either?11:41
cosmo_to restart the x server do I need to do a full reboot or is there a command?11:42
jribcosmo_: sudo service gdm restart11:42
adimitcosmo_: log out and re-log in.11:42
soreauraviepic3: Yea, bottom line is, if someone really wants to maliciously hack you, they will find a way. Better try to keep it in a place where no one can gain physical access11:42
soreaubut I dont think one can easily get your password from ubuntu11:43

Dr_Willis_TCLsingle auto logs in dosent it? ive not used single in ages.12:25
soreauDr_Willis_TCL: single is used for recovery mode afaik12:25
Dr_Willis_TCLsingle = opens a root shell? or is that recovery.  :)12:25
jribsoreau, Dr_Willis_TCL: yes, single is recovery mode12:25
Dr_Willis_TCLsingle = recovery then? but recovery also launches that recovery menu.12:26
soreaulesshaste: I dont want the output, I just wanted to know if it plays ok12:26
lesshastesoreau: plays fine :)12:26
soreaulesshaste: Try installing xorg-edgers and see if the problem goes away12:26
SenjaiDoes anyone know a media player in Ubuntu that has output quality similar to iTunes?12:26
serpentologistis there some key combination to press during boot process to launch a menu with possible options for booting? i tried pressing esc but it had no effect12:26
ActionParsnipserpentologist: add the boot option:  text     and you will be a user in text mode, no X server will run12:27
aCiD2Hi, having a bit of trouble getting grub2 to work now that I've changed hard drives. I've updated /etc/fstab to point to my new partition uuids, and update-grub uses the correct /boot partition, but is still using my old / uuid (on the other drive)12:27
lesshastesoreau: ok.. thanks.. I should find the bug reference too12:27
joeghiDr_Willis_TCL: then how to enable or disable services at startup permanently?12:27
aCiD2Any idea what I could be missing?12:27
coz_Senjai,  rhythmbox ?12:27
soreauSenjai: There used to be songbird, but I think they may have discontinued linux support12:27
ActionParsnipSenjai: depends on config of sound. I use deadbeef + pulseaudio-mixer. Works like a champ12:27
Senjaicoz_, when you use a subwoofer, the quality is poor with rythmbox12:27
jribaCiD2: update uuid in grub configuration?12:27
SenjaiActionParsnip Good quality with a sound system/12:27
serpentologistActionParsnip, what file should i edit? grub's menu.lst?12:27
Abhijitsoreau, there is kde 4 and qt 4 folders but they dont have include files12:27
ActionParsnipSenjai: the sound quality is usually down to the initial file played as well as the hardware used12:28
Dr_Willis_TCLjoeghi,  if they are upstart based . rename the ./etc/init/ file. or edit it. as needed. or just remvoe the service.12:28
soreau! compile | Abhijit12:28
ubottuAbhijit: Compiling software from source? Read the tips at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingSoftware (But remember to search for pre-built !packages first)12:28
ActionParsnipserpentologist: in /etc/default/grub   in the quotes with: quiet splash12:28
aCiD2jrib: no, since the move to grub2 you don't do that manually12:28
Dr_Willis_TCLserpentologist,  are you using grub1 or 2?  the text option is for the newer ubuntu versions.. that default to grub212:28
soreauAbhijit: You can also try ##c++12:28
aCiD2jrib: it uses os-prober to determine that stuff now12:28
jribaCiD2: well did it?12:28
aCiD2I'm going to try chrooting into the copied system, and running update-grub from there12:28
aCiD2jrib: no... hence my question12:28
jribaCiD2: yeah, so edit it manually12:28
coz_Senjai,   here is a list of media players   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Linux_media_players12:28
SenjaiAbhijit your question is a C++ question. Ask in ##c++ for those questions.12:29
ActionParsnipSenjai: try a few, see which you lik. As I say, most of sound quality isn't the app. I suggest you grab pulseaudio mixer so you can tweak the sound12:29
AbhijitSenjai, no its not.12:29
aCiD2jrib: no, because then it will just get broken again when I update my kernel12:29
ActionParsnipsee above serpentologist:12:29
ActionParsnipSenjai: sorry, wrong targer12:29
AbhijitSenjai, c++ is nothing to dith which library is where in my ubuntu12:29
jribaCiD2: no it won't12:29
soreauSenjai: Yea, its probably pulseaudio being crappy, your sound card or audio drivers12:29
jribaCiD2: the problem is with your existing entries12:29
SenjaiAbhijit Yes it does, those libraries are installed by qt or kde, not ubuntu12:29
coz_Senjai,   do you have a pro sound card?12:30
SenjaiAbhijit They do not come with ubuntu, you have to replace them, or find out where they are.12:30

aCiD2Running update-grub within a chroot environment seems to have fixed this12:31
coz_Senjai,  in ubuntu  simply open alsamixer  it should be listed there  as well12:32
Fuchsbullgard: it is the unique process identifier12:32
Senjaicoz_ IDT High Def.12:32

ubottuCompiz (compositing window manager), for a howto see http://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompositeManager and more help #compiz12:33
Fuchsbullgard: you can check it with `pidof` or pgrep12:33
Dr_Willis_TCLjoeghi,  im not sure if that command works with the new Upstart based services or not...12:33
Dr_Willis_TCLjoeghi,  it should work with the older sysv type services.12:33
coz_Senjai,   seems the driver in windows for that particular card  has given some issues as well... you could check in #alsa for compiling the alsa driver for that specifig card,,, I have to do that ,, espeicially on Lucid,,12:34
coz_Senjai, If you want full functionality that may be the way to go12:34
Senjaicoz_ alsa?12:35
coz_Senjai,   yes the alsa sound driver12:35
Senjaicoz_ The reason im on windows is for good sound quality atm12:35
Senjaicoz_ want my music to play on my system properly12:35
coz_Senjai,  it can be tweaked  during compile.12:35
soreauSenjai: Then you need to install the right drivers12:35
coz_Senjai,  pulseaudio may not support all features of that card12:35
coz_Senjai,  not really  for me the command is  ,/configure --with-cards=layla24  --with-oss=yes --with-sequencer=yes12:36

romantic_rectumI installed xorg and gnome-core, now I have problem mounting drives from nautilus as a user. Help.12:36
Senjairomantic_rectum you can mount in terminal, but not nautilus?12:37

Senjairomantic_rectum, go into terminal, type: sudo mount /dev/sda3 /media/DriveName/ -t ntfs12:39
Senjairomantic_rectum where drivename is the drive name of your windows partition.12:40
TobalJacksonhello ubuntu chat12:40
Senjairomantic_rectum first check if that works12:40
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  is there a .irssi/scripts directory? is there an autorun directroy in that dir?12:40
sacarlsonb0ot: you can create a crontab script with line start of @reboot  to start at boot,  if you sudo crontab -e  then it will be started in root with root privs12:40
TobalJacksonI was wondering if anyone could help me construct a bash script12:40
romantic_rectumSenjai, it works, already checked it, thou I am using root, not sudo.12:40
pokebearThere's no irssi-dir in home12:40
Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  dozens of bash script guides there.12:40
TobalJacksonspecifically, I'm trying to figure out if12:40
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  read it closely.. it says .irssi   see the . ?12:40
b0otsacarlson, thanks for the suggestion, but I have already tried that without sucesss. My script will call a program that segfaults12:40
TobalJacksonI can truncate a grep return with SED12:41
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  its a hidden directory.12:41
Senjairomantic_rectum oh, your logged in as root?12:41
pokebearYes, but there's no such thing. lost+found, +user +Games12:41
Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  grep patterh file | sed sedoptoions12:41
sacarlsonb0ot: then add a sleep 30 or some time in your script or find what is needed to be running for it to work12:41
TobalJacksonif i do 'sudo blkid | grep -i NtFs'12:41
romantic_rectumSenjai, no, just on one of terminals.12:41
pokebearIt didn't create a new dir. Do I need the -pv attributes? Tried running with sudo, nothing happened either.12:41
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  your home direcotry is for your users..  You most likely dont have those dirs in your home directory.12:41
TobalJacksonand what I want to do is truncate the return to just the '/dev/sdb1'12:41
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  i think you need to  spend an hr learning some bash basics..12:42
Senjairomantic_rectum, oh so when you try to mount through nautilus what happend12:42
=== richard is now known as Guest48248
=== Guest48248 is now known as richardfullmer
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,   you did NOT want to use sudo that would make the dir owned by root,12:42
TobalJacksonright now without truncating the return it looks like '/dev/sdb1: LABEL="HD E" ........blah blah'12:42
sacarlsonb0ot: I asume you also provide complete path when you do anything in crontab12:42
romantic_rectumSenjai, I forgot to mention that it looks the same for ext4 partitions12:42
pokebearDr_Willis_TCL: I think so too! :)12:42
b0otsacarlson, I was under the impression that the env didn't change if it was called with crontab... is that not correct?12:42
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  also you may want to check out 'weechat' if you want a console based irc client.12:43
TobalJacksonis there a way to just capture the first 10 characters of a text return12:43
sacarlsonb0ot: env is completely different so maybe create a source script to setup as needed12:43
Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  awk, or sed can do that i recall.12:43
romantic_rectumSenjai, 'autentication is requited to mount this device' promps for password.12:43
pokebearMore newbie friendly? :)12:43
buschwuschherro, i can't get the unity launcher for maverick can't i?12:43

TobalJacksonright, I'm pretty sure one of them can too, i just don't know the terminology to earch for12:43
krokophi. i've gave a 'chmod -R www-data:www-data /var/www', but everytime i create there dir or file it's created with user priviledges (for example user:group, and i want it do be user:www-data). how can I do that? i want every file and dir to be created with user:www-data priviledges.12:43
=== Katreyo is now known as Senjai
b0otsacarlson, I guess what i'm asking is if I call something with crontab and the script has a sleep 30, even after the script is called the env is still different than the normal env because it was called with crontab isn't it?12:44
Senjaithat was weird12:44
pokebearI like a challenge, I don't mind getting into problems. It's part of the learning process. :P12:44
Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  theres dozens of ;'quick awk' script and 'quick sed' examples out there on the web. i always have to look stuff up  when i use them.  dont use them a lotl12:44
jribkrokop: use Access Control Lists (man setfacl; man getfacl; note you need to add the "acl" option to the partition in fstab)12:44
pokebearI'll try them both out. Thanks12:44
Dr_Willis_TCLpokebear,  spend the time learning  some bash first. :)12:44
TobalJacksonDr_Willis_TCL: what terms should I search for? Truncate stdout with awk|sed?12:44
Senjairomantic_rectum are you aware your name is romantic rectum/12:44
Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  awk/sed oneliners  proberly will tgive pages of quick examples.12:45

Senjairomantic_rectum disturbing lol12:45
krokopjrib: can umask do this?12:45
TobalJacksonhmm, ok thanks, I'll try searching12:45
sacarlsonb0ot: yes the env is different at start and at end it makes no difference the sesion is closed12:45
soreauDr_Willis_TCL: TCL?12:46
b0otsacarlson, I already set my $PATH and $TERM variables... what other ones could be causing the problem12:46
jribkrokop: no. The alternative to using Access Control Lists is to setgid /var/www, make the group www-data, and make sure umask for users is 002.  But this won't work on subdirectories of /var/www/ automatically.12:46
soreaub0ot: Make sure to use absolute paths12:46
b0otsoreau, for which part?12:47
soreaub0ot: use absolute paths to any programs or scripts you are referencing12:48
b0otsoreau, my scripts start, they just segfault when they call a program, but the program itself starts so I don't think it is a path issue. (I could be mistaken)12:48
sacarlsonb0ot: I'm not sure you need to look inside the scripts you run to see what env values it uses.  maybe just copy the env you know it works in and import that into the cron sesion if needed12:48
soreaub0ot: If your script is segfaulting, that sounds like more of a personal problem :P12:48
veshhello there have ubuntu server installed on virtual box but have limited the hard disk space to 100gig fixed is there anyway of having this increased12:48
b0otsoreau,  do you know of anyway that might work to start a script @boot with root access when the script fails with crontab, rc.local, and linking it to init.d (it runs but segfaults when it gets to a program) but runs fine when I wait until ubuntu boots and run it in the terminal? I have also tried to manually set the $PATH and $TERM in the script without sucess.12:48
soreauvesh: Ask in #vbox12:49
b0otsoreau, so I know the program itself works, just not the way that cron and it's related programs start it12:49
sacarlsonsoreau: I guess b0ot must have some custom program that uses some custom libs and when run in cron it must run the wrong lib?12:49
soreaub0ot: I have no idea what is segfaulting for you or why12:49
soreausacarlson: no idea12:50
Dr_Willis_TCLsoreau,  on Tiny Core Linux right now. :)12:50
soreauDr_Willis_TCL: oh neat12:50
b0otsoreau, any ideas on other ways I could start the script?12:50
soreaub0ot: You pretty much named them all12:50
sacarlsonb0ot: maybe your program needs an xserver?12:51
soreaub0ot: Maybe it would help to explain more exactly what you are trying to do12:51

Dr_Willis_TCLTobalJackson,  theres proberly a dozen ways to get the first 10 characters from a line.    You could just use awk/sed  and a regular expression also. to match 10 characters12:54
Dr_Willis_TCLromantic_rectum,  i dont even remember what your problem is/was :)12:54
sacarlsonb0ot: did you try the delay start of a few minits or whatever time you nomaly take to start in in a terminal.  I guess if your network is slow to get started is the only thing I see that might cause a problem12:55
b0otIf I could change the program to be able to run at the userlevel would starting the script with startup applications allow it to have the same env as if it I started it normally in terminal after ubuntu loaded? I have also attempted to launch the script with screen?12:55
romantic_rectumDr_Willis_TCL, : ) same as in thread. Nautilus (?) request authentication during mount.12:55

skutr34Curly_Q: im not overlapping15:04
Pumpkin-dogarrhea: does it literally say that, or is it the standard "There is NO warranty; not even for MERCHANTABILITY or FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE."15:05
Curly_QDoesn't matter. Logical partitions is the right way to do it.15:05
timmybobcat14dajhorn- if I had important microsoft files on this computer  I would not let ubuntu in a million miles of it! ha ha ha ha. I15:05
dogarrheapumpkin- same difference.15:05
dajhorntimmybobcat14:   +1   you trolled me.15:05
llutzpartition type doesn't matter at all15:05
skutr34Curly_Q: i have a 220gb windows partition and only 104gb is being used15:06
timmybobcat14dajhorn-I beg your pardon?15:06
Pumpkin-dogarrhea: almost all free software comes with that. Otherwise you leave yourself open to being sued for giving away software. If you need someone to sue if something goes wrong, go buy a support contract from someone.15:06
macoserpentologist: apparently15:06
dajhorntimmybobcat14: Saying things like that makes it sound like your question wasn't genuine.15:06
skutr34Curly_Q: therefore as long as i leave some extra space for windows i should be fine on data15:06
Curly_QSkutr34, the size of the HD is not the issue. It is better for you to allocate a certain amount of disk space for Windows and Linux. Therefore, logically partitioning the drive is the best way to take advantage of the disk.15:07
llutzskutr34: you should defrag your win-filesystem before15:07
dogarrheaeh. you can be sued for anything.  even if you do include that merchantability clause and your program causes grevious damage intentionally15:07
dajhorntimmybobcat14: The command names are different, but the basic procedure to save your /home partition are nearly the same as what you would need to do at the Windows recovery prompt.15:07
dogarrheaand maybe even unintentionally, you're liable15:07
ruanwhat's the difference between windows i386 and linux i686?15:07
llutzCurly_Q: lvm you mean?15:07
joe_9what does the file extension ".a" represent. Is that a library?15:08
dajhornjoe_9:  .a is a static library.15:08
lesshasteruan: really?15:08
l1st`ruan: it is a USB drive, yes.  I was looking for a way to have a bootable LiveCD and some other Windows utilities at the same time, and XP apparently doesn't like the idea of partitioning a USB drive15:08
timmybobcat14dajhorn-ha ha ha. Not at all buddy perfectly genuine problem and perfectly genuine comment. But lets not fall out I'll do what you suggested but I'm not an expert or wouldn't be here. Away I go. Thanks and cheers15:08
lesshasteruan: are you asking the difference between windows and linux?15:08
cha0s2358ActionParsnip, Hey, You helped me out a while ago with my Canon Mp150 all in one printer. You sent me a link to a resolved issue you were involved in. I'm trying to set the same printer up to a different Ubuntu 10.10 machine but I can't find the bookmark to that link. Do you think you can send it to me again?15:08
ruanlesshaste: no15:08
Curly_Qllutz, anyway you want to look at it.15:08
joe_9dajhorn, can a static library be included in a C++ application?15:08
ruanlesshaste: im asking the difference between i386 and i68615:08
llutzCurly_Q: i just try to make sense in what you say...15:08
dajhornjoe_9: Yes, usually.15:08
skutr34so i should just fuck it then, Curly_Q15:09
lesshasteruan: 32 versus 64 bit?15:09
ruanlesshaste: no, im on 32 bit and im on i68615:09
macoruan: they're different revisions of the x86 architecture15:09
phenomAny one have any clue on how to troubleshoot a wandering trackpad mouse? I track the mouse to say the left three times,, and it will bounce back a few inches in the opposite direction..15:09
ruanmaco: ah, thanks15:09
macoruan: i686 has more instructions available for more optimisation15:09
Piciskutr34: Mind your language here please.15:09
Curly_Qllutz, I prefer logical partitioning if the first installation was Windows. LVM if Linux is installed first.15:09
MarconMwho is tenting new release ubuntu 11.0415:10
beer_brouwerphenom: clean it :D15:10
Pumpkin-ruan: different revisions of the x86 instruction set. i386 stuff will run on 386's, i686's will run on P2's (I think). i686 has some more optimal instructions, and so stuff will run better in general with it (unless you want to run it on a P1 or 486 or 386, when it won't run at all)15:10
PiciMarconM: The folks in #ubuntu+115:10
llutzCurly_Q: logical partitions (drives inside an extended partition) and LVM are completely different things15:10

secretary_linuxok I really don't want to sound like a broken record but is there anything at all I can try to get a working chroot into my broken system from usb stick when I try to chroot and get an error that /bin/sh doesn't exist (meanwhile there is /bin/sh and /target/bin/sh) - I really don't want to be repetitive but I'm out of things to try other than wiping everything and reinstalling...15:13
Curly_QThe best solution is using dual drives dedicated for each OS.15:14
ruanllutz: where is that?15:14
skutr34Curly_Q: how would i do that?15:14
llutzCurly_Q: ~/.irssi/config        if not, create that part15:14
lesshastesecretary_linux: you need a forum or mailing list if you don't get a good answer on irc15:14
sebastiandedicated drivers are an alternative15:14
llutzruan: ^^ sry15:14
Piciruan: You shouldn't be modyifying your irssi config manually. #irssi can tell you the right way to change that setting.15:14
secretary_linuxlesshaste: true, but there's no time for something like that, I'd have to go nuclear first15:14
soreau! chroot | secretary_linux15:14
ubottusecretary_linux: A chroot is used to make programs believe that the directory they are running in is really the root directory. It can be used to stop programs accessing files outside of that directory, or for compiling 32bit applications in a 64bit environment - see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BasicChroot15:14
dajhornsecretary_linux: Double-check that the chroot and the LiveCD or LiveUSB are both 32-bit or both-64 bit.15:14
lesshastesecretary_linux: no time == has to be done in an hour?15:14
Curly_QBuy another hard drive.15:14
secretary_linuxunfortunately the ! chroot guide doesn't help me15:14
secretary_linuxlesshaste: that would be ideal15:14
secretary_linuxlesshaste: system has been down since yesterday15:15
lesshastesorry to hear it15:15

lesshastesecretary_linux: ^^15:15
secretary_linuxdajhorn: thanks, someone caught me on that earlier :) they are both 64 bit now15:15
darreoim having a slight problem mounting an old jfs partition on 10.1015:15
dajhornsecretary_linux: Do you know how the chroot target got trashed?    Filesystem problem?  Bad upgrade?15:15
skutr34Curly_Q: im on a laptop so would it be ok to run one of the os's on an external harddrive?15:16
Tw|sTFor dual booting, the best solution I've found is combine a USB hard drive with a motherboard that supports USB-boot.  I then install Windows into the on-system drive, and install Ubuntu to the USB drive.  This eliminates needing to install Grub to the system.  Instead, install it to the USB drive.  I have 2 different solutions like this, one is running from a 16GB Sandisk Flash drive...15:16
=== sysadmin is now known as Guest19107
Curly_QSkutr34, you can install two hard drives on your laptop. I have done it.15:16
Tw|sTwhile the other is installed on the first 40GB of a 120GB USB hard drive (single cable type).15:16
cha0s2358how do i ping someone?15:16
ironfoot495Hello I'm looking for a software to control the broadcasting video shows and and advertisment on an ubuntu server . Can someone tell me if there is a program like that for linux use?15:16
Curly_QThen it all depends on the Real Estate of your laptop though.15:16
skutr34Curly_Q: i dont want to open the laptop though.... would an external work?15:17
secretary_linuxdajhorn: yes, rsnapshot left a lot of hard links to all files on the system and when I tried to remove them, rm -r actually followed the links and deleted all the files on the system. I copied stuff from a good backup, but I can't boot because the backup is from before a kernel upgrade last week15:17
beer_brouwerch0s: ping <IP>15:17
Curly_QYou can slave a second hard drive.15:17
=== sre-su_ is now known as sre-su

cha0s2358ActionParsnip,  You here man?15:17
beer_brouwercha0s: or ping www.example.com15:18
skutr34Curly_Q: also would i have to reinstall linux to move it to the external?15:18
Curly_QKeep in mind that if you boot up you need to go into the BIOS and set the boot sequence for what you want to boot up first.15:18
cha0s2358beer_brouwer, thank you15:18
dajhornsecretary_linux: Does this command succeed?   chroot /busted/system /sbin/ldconfig -v15:18
Curly_QYou can dual boot with a USB installation.15:18
Tw|sTyup, all day.15:19
Curly_QThat is if your BIOS is setup for it.15:19
skutr34Curly_Q: would i have to reinstall linux to move it to the external drive>15:19
Curly_QYou can Dual boot with a 64 gig memory stick. Put it in your pocket and you have a Linux server and Windows to go.  hehe15:19
llutzskutr34: its no problem to have linux on the same disk as windows, you should defrag your win-filesystem before you try to shrink your win-partitions and make sure to backup your data15:19
Curly_QSkutr34 yes.15:19
skutr34llutz: well i like the idea of having it on another harddrive hough15:20
Curly_QI call it Linux on a stick.  hehe15:20
llutzskutr34: not very handy for a laptop (imho)15:20
Tw|sTmost likely anyways, unless you wanna go about things the hard way.  It's best to reinstall anyway to optimize the system to the new storage medium.15:20
secretary_linuxdajhorn: fails. I tried "chroot /target /sbin/ldconfig -v" getting basically same error as before. there is, in fact, no /sbin/ldconfig in the install environment, so I tried "chroot /target /target/sbin/ldconfig -v" and got the same thing (there is a /target/sbin/ldconfig)15:20
darreofixed my problem, ran a fsck on /dev/sda415:21

nebularI'm having a weird issue with openVPN and networkmanager. It no longer sets the default gateway and so unless I add it manually I can only connect to compuers on the local network15:21

=== jrn_ is now known as jrn_a
secretary_linuxnebular: default gateway with openvpn is a server, not client setting15:21
skutr34Curly_Q: not a bad idea15:21
dajhornsecretary_linux: Your backup is probably incomplete.  Perhaps the `rm -r` deleted some system libraries.15:22
Tw|sT16GB at very minimum to be useful.  I've done USB stick installs to 4GB drives, but they are very small and minimally capable.15:22
llutzskutr34: should be fine, store your data on the win-partition. writing ntfs is no problem15:22
skypcei have a compiled kernel with acpi modules included, when i shutdown  the machine it doesnt shutdown  what can i do?15:22
secretary_linuxdajhorn: how can I determine what they are? and best I can tell, the backup is actually complete15:22
nebularsecretary_linux: Yes, however openVPN works fine when I boot into linux or on my phone running android 2.315:22
secretary_linuxdajhorn: if I could chroot in, I would try to do some apt-get repairs15:22
skutr34llutz: i dont understand15:22
dajhornsecretary_linux:  That would be a lot of work.   A quicker solution would be to reinstall every package on the broken system.15:22
skutr34Curly_Q: those things are like 100 dollars15:22
secretary_linuxdajhorn: yes that's also my inclination but I'm not sure the best way to approach it15:22
nebularso my sever is sending the proper gateway, network manager isn't applying it15:22
Curly_QYou can install VMware on a memory stick with Windows, Linux, Apple or anything.15:23
