ohzietchqvolo: I've never had to use them.00:08
timmybobcat14ohzie-I was actually using the previous kernal of ubuntu 10.04 which you just so kindly helped me to fix but the latest kernel still has the problem.00:08
itiliouswhy does split4g still "copy files" even if there are no 4+GB files?00:08
ohzietimmybobcat14: oh if you're only getting that with that specific kernel then you need to switch to your old kernel00:08
tchqvolook but how configure rsync in ubuntu serveur00:08
ohzietimmybobcat14: and if you could file a bug report because a new kernel shouldn't do that at all00:09
bl4ckcombitilious, might be a bit-flip caused by Japan's radiation00:09
timmybobcat14So shall I copy and paste the steps you used here and if I can open the new kernel apply them there? No no I seemed to have the problem with both kernels but now not with this one only the latest one.00:09

edbianformat120, It is impossible to decompile because there is more than 1 way to write a given program :(01:11
nictrasaviosAha! i went into the auditing of windows 7, reconfigured a few options, then boosted the ram given to the installer from 4gb to 16gb , leavin only 18gb of ram for ubuntu, but that is enough.01:11
foowaffleclick where?01:11
nictrasaviosIt is workin now, the installer, as one of you said, is very buggy.01:11
AltrixSrlsly Ubuntu, this is stupid why have the Fing feature there if it only works 10% of the time!!!!?01:11
format120exactly, edbian01:11

gabe_hello, I have a problem that I cannot find an answer for. Please help me... I have a desktop that has a wlan0 interface (, which connects to my ISP's router and to the Internet. I also have an eth0 interface ( that connects to a Cisco Terminal Access Server (I have a small rack of routers and switches). The problem is that when I use the wired connection, even though the wireless connection does not go do01:23
gabe_wn, I'm not able to browse the Internet and I can't understand why01:23
nictrasaviosOh, sorry i forget myself. If anyone wishes further information , private message me. I shall be off now. but i shall remain online for those curious.01:23
natrixnatrix89gabe_: have you set the right gateway for cable connection?01:24
nictrasaviosOh and jordan, i am about to PM you.01:25
Jordan_Ugabe_: You can only (easily) have one default gateway. My guess is that someting on the ethernet network is advertising a default gateway (and wired networks are by default prefered over wireless).01:25
erik333you can chat in IRC but not browse?01:25
cntbwhta is your default gateway gabe_01:25
gabe_natrixnatrix89: thanks for responding,. The configuration on wlan0 is gw: and for eth0 is gw
natrixnatrix89and is that the address of your router?01:26
Jordan_Ugabe_: Setup a static connection for eth0 with no default gateway.01:26
gabe_when I plug my  terminal server to eth0, botwh wlan0 and eth0 show as up and I can even  ping the IPS's router at but I can't browse the Internet unless I unplug the wired one01:27
gabe_eth0 without gw?01:27

nictrasaviosJordan_U, i am quite serious, if anything comes up, you have my loyal hand, my word, and my honor within your grasp. as dose the entire community.01:31
nictrasaviosillmortal, try the disk utility. Its within the system > Administration . it will benchmark your system01:33
illmortaldisk utility?..01:33
illmortalthat's just for HDD, isn't it?01:34
nellieeI went from ubuntu 10.10 to 10.04 and I always unplug my spair hard drive before I do so to prevent data loss and now I cant see my storage drive in ubuntu but it shows up in bios as plugged in. do I need to re mount it or regain permission or what?01:34
illmortalI wanna measure out my CPU's performance and make sure it's stable01:34
nictrasaviosillmortal, yes it is, if your looking for ram speed and so on then i would push it, try some video editing software ;) they tend to put your CPU into overdrive.01:35
nictrasaviosillmortal, but i am sure there is a proper benchmarking utility, as i have never had need, i have never looked, but i shall now for you.01:35

gabe_but why? I don't understand why omitting the gw for eth001:36
nictrasaviosillmortal, go to the software center, and search "benchmark" , there are 4 utilties that appear, the first is what you want, but i shall try it myself and make sure01:36

edbiannelliee, Look in computer01:37
gabe_I sure do, but I'm thinking each interface belongs to a different network ( and
gabe_so each one has their own gw right?01:37
nellieeedbian, i cant find it in computer or in places01:38

The OS is still running though; I can hear the startup sounds and when I blindly type in my password to log in after a few seconds I hear the login sound. The display on my LiveUSB works fine and we can use it to make changes.01:47

edbianHabstina1, Before grub?01:51
edbianHabstina1, Press shift a whole bunch while the machine is booting, right after BIOS post01:52
nellieeedbian,   thanks so much for your help . ill reboot and see01:52
edbiannelliee, No problem01:52
Habstina1edbian: I'd say so considering I tried bashing both Control keys during boot and I didn't see anything.01:52
edbianHabstina1, you press shift key to get the grub menu.  Mash on those during boot.  The grub menu should work regardless of this problem.  We just have to get it to show up.01:53
Habstina1edbian: Here's the card: 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 5450 switchable graphics [HDMI, VGA]01:53
edbianHabstina1, Then you can add 'nomodeset' at the grub menu and boot and fix normally01:53

l1ghtn1ngedbian, what do you mean add PCM? The volume control works fine. I can mute and turn up volume like I want, but the problem is that the first 5 or 10% of the volume bar is the entire spectrum of raising and lowering the volume02:21

l1ghtn1ngedbian, when i open alsamixer, when i move the first 5% of my volume control, it maxes at 100 or goes down to nothing. How do I make my volume abr the entire spectrum of PCM volume?02:23
edbianHabstina1, Well your at a cli right?  What did you expect to hear?02:23

l1ghtn1ngedbian, Indicator applet on my start bar uptop is what i use. The first 10% of that indicator volume bar controls 0-100% of PCM02:24

felixsullaBing0: Do you know how to disable the normal Ubuntu tray after activating Avant?02:26
l1ghtn1ngedbian, yes when i have alsamixer open, and adjust the volume bar on the indicator applet, it moves the alsamixer PCM bar up and down like I want. the problem is that only once I reach 10% of the indicator applet volume, it maxes the PCM @ 100%....i want them to be even. if i have volume at 50% on the indicator applet, i want 50% PCM02:26
Bing0felixsulla, not offhand02:26
Bing0been to long02:27
edbianl1ghtn1ng, Change the sliders in alsamixer using the up and down arrows.  (I'm aware of the volumen increasing too fast, you don't have to keep typing that)  I believe this is the route to fix the problem.  :)02:27
edbianHabstina1, How's it going?02:27
edbiannelliee, How's it going?02:27

Bing0Hi.  Ubuntu 10.10.  I have an ubuntu box setup to only access the web(firefox) and only want two sites accessible.  What is the route to accomplish this?  Thanks!02:28
edbiannelliee, get rid of the comma after default and make it 'defaults'  with an s02:28
edbiannelliee, Then try to save02:29
l1ghtn1ngedbian, i have adjusted the volume in terminal up and down and it does nothing :( the PCM still maxes out at 10% of my volume bar in the applet :(02:29
edbianl1ghtn1ng, So moving the pcm slider moves the master super fast?  I'm confused... How many sliders do you have in alsamixer?  Just one labeled PCM?02:30
nellieeedbian,  still the same02:30
Bopruzyour card is probably too old like mine02:30
l1ghtn1ngedbian, It has 'master', 'pcm', 'front', 'surround', 'center'02:30
edbiannelliee, delete the whole line and save...02:30
l1ghtn1ngedbian, the applet only effects PCM and Master02:31
abikutes heloo everybody02:31
edbianl1ghtn1ng, can you move master and pcm independently in alsamixer?02:31
sacarlsonBing0: you coould make all /bin and /usr/bin files set to not execute with chmod -x /bin/* ; chmod -x /usr/bin/*  for the only two site you could setup iptables filter02:31
nellieeedbian,  ok done02:31
Bing0sacarlson, i fail to see how that can control what websites i want to access?02:32
edbiannelliee, all that line would have done is auto-mount the partition.  I have no idea why it thinks an unpriviliged user was trying to mount.  The file is run as root at boot time.02:32
l1ghtn1ngedbian, yes, btu no matter how i manually adjust in alsamixer, when i move the applet volume the first 5-10% maxes PCM volume, then master volume starts adjusting...the problem is master volume doesnt change anything, only PCM does02:32
sacarlsonBing0: iptables02:32
Bing0sacarlson, or you mean config iptables to only allow that? oh ok02:32
edbiannelliee, You could write a simple bash script that mounts the partition.  or just remember the command as a workaround02:32
Bing0sacarlson, so far i found firestarter(firewall) that might deny all but approved hosts.02:32
edbianl1ghtn1ng, I can't figure out how to get it to automount right now.  (I also don't know why it isn't automounting)02:32
l1ghtn1ngedbian, moving my master volume up and down does not effect my volume at all02:33
nellieeedbian,  well it now dose not show any files in it when I go to it in nautilus02:33
sacarlsonBing0: I just create iptables scripts but firestarter might work also02:33
l1ghtn1ngedbian, moving my master volume up and down does not effect my volume at all02:33
Bing0sacarlson, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=843510   <--- just found this too :)02:33
edbianl1ghtn1ng, I see.  Perhaps there is a setting in the volume applet up top for what it controls?  Dig around it's settings for me.  (I'm not on an Ubuntu machine)02:33
edbiannelliee, You have to run 'mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/storage'  then it will02:33
edbiannelliee, Get your terminal out of /mnt/storage/ if it's in there02:34
l1ghtn1ngedbian, if master volume is at 0% or 100%, doesnt matter ebcause it doesnt effect my volume :) only PCM effects the volume....02:34
edbianl1ghtn1ng, The slider should change master.  Obviously master should be master.  PCM is usually never changed02:34
edbianl1ghtn1ng, Yeah, I know.  Try messing with the GUI of the audio applet to make it control master (that might given Ubuntu a hint)02:35
l1ghtn1ngedbian, well then the problem then is that master volume does nothing on my machine  :)02:35
edbianl1ghtn1ng, Yes.  That's a much deeper problem02:35
l1ghtn1ngedbian, if manually setting the master volume does nothing, why would i want to link my applet to it? i just want my applet bar to match the PCM volume :)02:36
dustinanyone got time to maybe walk me through a small problem im haveing "i wanna in gnome extract a file to a folder that contains "openarena" but it says i dont have the right file permissions" how do i go about getting them and could ya help me with the extracting see the trouble is i need sudo but i dunno know how to extract/unzip through the terminal. anyone help ?02:36
sacarlsonBing0: that sounds like they just want to take out a few sites you want to take out all but two,  seems like there would be an easier way for you02:36
nellieeedbian,  cool that lets me browse the files on that drive so I just got to figure out how to get ubuntu to mount it auto mount it at boot ?02:36
Bing0sacarlson, all i want is two websites(gmail is one of them) accessible, the rest are denied.02:37
edbianl1ghtn1ng, Perhaps matching the applet to master will give Ubuntu a clue02:37
Bing0sacarlson, if you think iptables is the route to go based on my needs then let me know a recipe :)02:37
sacarlsonBing0: they all use iptables just a different user interface02:37
edbiannelliee, BAsically.  and /etc/fstab is how to automount.  ntfs partitions are tricky though.  REad this:  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab02:38

roolyGuest63152, and then it tries to make the wirless daemon use that invalid hardware, causing the access violation03:18

DavidJHeinrich1why does the "lscpu" command report that my Intel Q9550 CPU is only 2GHz, not 2.8 GHz?03:45

A|i3NHey guys trying to figure out if something is possible. Got ubuntu installed on a second computer. I want the same packages installed on it that are on my other computer. Is there any way to move the package files over via CD to prevent having to download a buncha stuff again? I already tried moving what was in /var/cache/apt/archives but i'm guessing there's more somewhere03:47
DavidJHeinrich1rww: desktop CPUs as old as the Intel Q9550 have scaling? (and if I stressed the system, it'd show them faster?)?03:47
roolycesurasean, the mbr is in the first sector of the hdd03:48
sacarlsoncesurasean: sda unless you change it in bios03:48
roolyA|i3N, yeah there is. let me go look up the package03:48
roolyA|i3N, check out aptoncd03:48
A|i3Naww man need a package to move packages eh? ;) that'll work. hehe03:49
sacarlsoncesurasean: mbr is normaly not installed on a partition it is put at the first 512 bytes of the device03:49

A|i3Naptoncd... by the name, it sounds like it might work. lol. Ill check it out on my other computer (i'm guessing I'll need to install this on the "host")03:49
cesuraseansacarlson, ok im confused. which sdb do i use??03:50
rwwDavidJHeinrich1: if you get CPU usage up to 100%, it should show 2.8GHz, yes.03:50
cesuraseanwhere do i specify root directory? my linux partition? or the extended partition, or what?03:50
DavidJHeinrich1rww: ahhh, ok, good to know...thanks!03:50
cesuraseani tried using sdb5, but it says that's not the mbr, and i need to use the mbr03:50
Skywalk3rHow do i change so the status things "user joins" "user quits" dooesnt show in Irssi?03:50
sacarlsoncesurasean: for mbr?  sdb  or sda  or sdX   NOT sda1 or sdb2 or ....03:51
backtracksoreau, I found the command and uninstalled the drivers. However, after that no display was found and I couldn't startx.03:51
roolyA|i3N, yes. it creates an apt-readable database. when you put the burned disc into the destination computer, it should automatically pop up with an 'available packages' dialogue03:51
DavidJHeinrich1rww: that makes me think twice about my purchase of an Opteron 6128...I thought it was on-par speedwise with my Q9550! ... but its slower! (I purchased it for 32GB RAM) Maybe I'll sell and wait for LGA201103:51

bazhangmaxillusionist, if there is its unsupported and offtopic here06:37
maxillusionist actually i saw an alias like that LOL06:38
bazhangcmdbbq, you can change the timeout in grub2, just hold shift at boot06:38
SoftdroidWhat is Astk in the Science menu, nothing happens when I run it06:38
maxillusionistgrub is bootloader for ubuntu like LiLo etc06:38
dancekalesan, if you need to ask, you shouldn't (i.e. it's easy to compile a kernel)06:39
alesandancek, do not make assumptions.06:39
threexkDoes Ubuntu have a magnification tool built in?  My laptop screen is dead so i'm plugged into a tv via s-video and I can't read anything06:39
alesandancek, is there a "PPA" or something that updates to the latest kernel automatically?06:40
bazhangalesan, check the ppa search page, its completely unsupported and at your own risk however06:40
bazhangalesan, its at launchpad06:41
maxillusionistthreexk do you use your tv as a montor06:42
dancekalesan, imo you shouldn't use unofficial kernels compiled by someone else because that's just really unsecure06:42
threexkmaxillusionist; not normally, it's a standard-definition tV06:42
cmdbbqbazhang: ok, i seem to be booting now, but i didn't get a menu or a dialogue to change rootdelay. could you tell me more about what i just did? has the root delay changed permenantly or will i need to hold shift at every boot?06:43

iiicygubuntu-desktop, soory07:12
Jordan_Ualesan: Some have said that XFCE is going to start differentiating itself by keeping a more "conservative" Desktop Environment rather than trying new paradigms like KDE and GNOME are currently doing. It's hard to say if that will still be true 5 years from now but it might be something to look at.07:12

elFidelsilvery: yes07:39
elFidelerm Still_Learning: yes07:39
Still_LearningBut I googled a bit and my graphic card isnt supported anymore with drivers...07:40
Still_LearningWould that make any diffrence for ubuntu?07:41
elFidelhow about just trying the livd-cd on YOUR computer?07:41

llutz_YourTube: type "set prefix=(hd0,2)/boot/grub"07:42
ohzieStill_Learning: the bad news is that entire series of graphics card had some serious issues with linux drivers that I don't think ever got really resolved..07:43
llutz_YourTube: without quotes07:43
ohzieStill_Learning: but kedy is right and it should work07:43
YourTubei did this sudo mkdir /media/sda2  and sudo mount /dev/sda2 /media/sda2  also sudo grub-install --root-directory=/media/sda2 /dev/sda07:43

YourTubeJordan_U i followed this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=101470808:01

llutz_YourTube: either follow Jordan_Us hint or try "linux /vmlinuz-2.6.35-25 root=/dev/sda2"08:01
Jordan_UYourTube: That thread is more prone to user error.08:01
YourTubetrying that llutz wait08:01
Jordan_UYourTube: Make sure that you have a 64 bit liveCD if you're trying to rescue a 64 bit install though.08:02
YourTubeyea.. i'm using the live cd that i used to install my ubuntu08:02
llutz_YourTube: better use the live-cd, no fun to estimate your kernel-version (wonder why tab-completion doesn't work)08:03

Jordan_Ullutz_: My guess is that tab completion isn't working because the path should be /boot/vmlin<tab> not /vmlin<tab> (but it's still probably easier to just work from the liveCD).08:04
llutz_Jordan_U: argh, you're right, my bad08:04
YourTubei used the live cd and followed the instruction from ubuntuforums thread... and it shows that thing " grub> "08:04

ohzieYou know, guys, I tried to switch to a mac. I got a nice mac mini with 4g of ram and a nice dual monitor setup(matching monitors, 1080p, very nice, very jazz) and I tried to use them for a week, and what it came down to is that everything I could do on the mac I could do in linux more easily and with less frustration08:17
llutz_elektroid: i just uses only 1 core of the cpu, so it will make the system a bit slower08:17
asdfascan anyone tell me syntax of /server command?08:17
Jordan_Ujohanhar: ~/.gvfs08:17
ohzieAlso osx-terminal, somehow, is less functional than xterm but way way prettier, because apparently that's the priority.08:18

ISTAhello! jst wondering if anyone can help me. i accidently deleted my winxp partitions. created (stupidly) another partition and deleted that 1 too. now I have an unpartioned hdd and want to get some pictures of it. My hdd is failing.08:29
ShaydStill_Learning what do you plan on doing with it?08:29
NiglopWhenever I try to delete/move/rename anything in a certain folder on my External harddrive, I get a 'Input/output error.' message08:29
ISTAi want to dd and create an image of it but just want some assistntt/advise08:29
Still_LearningWell tbh I quit playing games ,so I want faster Gcard for rending apps and quicker in general08:30
Jordan_UISTA: Use GNU ddrescue (*not* dd_rescue which is a different though similar program).08:30
YourTubegot to go! thanks.. i'll be back... my problem not yet resolved.08:30

Jordan_UYourTube: What version of Ubuntu are you using? That's an acient version of GRUB2 that you definitely don't want to use.08:32
YourTubeJordan_U i install the backtrack that's why it overwrite the newer grub08:33
Jordan_UYourTube: Can you pastebin the output of "lsb_release -a"?08:33
ShaydStill_Learning I'd hit the nearest computer shop (not frys, best buy etc.) for general computing you'll probably also want to upgrade the ram.08:34
YourTubeJordan_U http://paste.ubuntu.com/580974/08:34
Jordan_UYourTube: First run "apt-get install grub" in that chroot to restore grub legacy, then chroot into Ubuntu (right now you must be chrooted into backtrack since that's definitely not the version of grub in Ubuntu 10.10).08:34
Still_LearningSo Linux doesnt have low RAM limitations like XP?08:35
Jordan_UYourTube: I meant run "lsb_release" in the chroot as well.08:35
ShaydUbuntu's has pretty low system requirements, however things will run faster with better hardware :P08:36
ShaydStill_Learning https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements08:37
Still_Learningyea I want that too.08:38
Still_LearningJust to run it faster08:38

I am having an issue on my laptop where it keeps crashing back to the login screen(gdm I think) and sometimes it does this thing where all the colors on the screen slowly fade into white(I actually thought my display was fried the first time it happend) and it keeps doing it randomly. Does anyone know how I would go about tracking down what is causing it? I can't seem to f08:39
fuzzybunny69yind anything in the logs or anything08:39
Jordan_UYourTube: Sorry, "lsb_release -a"08:39
YourTubeJordan_U http://paste.ubuntu.com/580976/08:40
Jordan_UYourTube: That is an ancient verison of Ubuntu that hasn't been supported for years. Again, run "apt-get install grub" then "exit" to get out of the chroot and make sure that you chroot into your Ubuntu 10.10 install this time.08:41
YourTubeJordan_U apt-get install grub  done....08:44
YourTubeJordan_U whats next?08:45
Jordan_UYourTube: Good. Now it might be easiest to just reboot the LiveCD and start the Guide from the beginning again, making sure that you mount your Ubuntu 10.10 partition to /mnt/ and not the ancient 8.10 partition.08:45

Jordan_UYourTube: Then you mounted the wrong partition to /mnt/08:59
YourTubeits correct.. but it shows 2 linux in there08:59
jjp__Rix: no idea, but if the file is on a mounted FS, you should be able to find it with lsof, find, updatedb and locate...08:59
Jordan_UYourTube: Then mount the other linux parition to /mnt/09:00

It's so bad that it takes seconds to register mouse movements and clicks after a while. The performance seems to degrade more over time also. Is this just me or does anyone else have this issue?09:02
Jordan_UYourTube: You'll need to run "exit" to get out of the chroot and then run "sudo umount -a" to unmount everything (or reboot again if that doesn't work).09:03

ericy[deXter]: Nothing.09:32
Krycekso, how do i fix a messed up rep for the command update? tried too search for the problem BUT theres nada out there, could it be that I have messed it up or is it possible that a second party or a third party could messed it up?09:33
ericy[deXter]: Bye.09:34
KrycekSynaptic Package Manager isnt helping me much..09:34
foodooI'd like to install Opera. I've added the opera.com package source and when I mark opera for installation, synaptic wants to install flashplugin-nonfree as well. Looking at the properties of the opera-packages flashplugin-nonfree is only /recommended/ not required. How do I tell synaptic to not install flashplugin?09:36
Syphilluswhy dont you want flash09:36
foodooIt's insecure09:36
Krycekjust make it worse, i need my update dudes, guys anyone, i hit apt-get update and now it tell me E: Could not get lock /var/lib/apt/lists/lock - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)09:36
KrycekE: Unable to lock directory /var/lib/apt/lists/09:36
speciesthere isnt really a usable open source flash player so... you're probably stuck with flashplugin-nonfree09:36
Syphillusi get that now and then i just reboot09:37
Syphillususually solves it09:37
speciesKrycek: do you have synaptic open?09:37
foodoospecies: My problem is not having no flashplayer but not wanting to install flashplugin-nonfree09:37
Krycekspecies: nope09:37
foodoospecies: I don't miss flash on the internet09:37
speciesfoodoo: its not going to hurt you09:37
speciesfoodoo: even if you are a die hard "everything must be foss" person, there IS no usable open source flash player, so you arent losing anything09:38
Krycekso, maybe a reboot will do, bah09:38
SyphillusI do all that kinda surfing in a VM.09:38
speciesif you think adobe will open source flash just because a few people dont use it on ubuntu your head is in the clouds09:38
SyphillusNo flash on my actual box09:38
foodoospecies: I don't want Flash at all. It's a waste of resources and there are different ways of viewing YT videos if I really need to watch one09:38
speciesfair enough09:39
speciespersonally I would install it but then disable it in specific browsers09:39
foodooAnd the weird thing is: It's only a recommendation for the opera package. Not a requirement09:39
specieswell, its a third party plugin09:39
overcluckeror install the whole deal then uninstall flashplugin-nonfree09:39
foodoooverclucker, yeah, that would be the dirty approach^^09:40
speciesyou could have installed it all by now if you didnt care so much09:42
speciesthere is a difference between not *needing* something, and needing to *not have* something.09:42
llutz_foodoo: use aptitude -R    or apt-get --no-install-recommends09:42
foodoollutz: thanks :)09:42
llutz_foodoo: both can be configured not to install recommends automatically. not sure about synaptics, i never used it09:43
=== Asstyx is now known as AStyx
odixanyone ever seen a program that emulates a dvd/cd drive on boot and can choose an iso from a media storage device for os boot installations09:48
odixvia no cd drive and no usb boot09:49
odixis it possible ??09:49
sacarlson odix yes09:49
odixwell i need it09:49
odixi assume it writes a boot sector partition with that emulation software on it09:50
lesshaste_what do I need to install to get the KDE help center?09:50
odixmy dvd drive is burning coasteres09:50
odixand i have no option to boot from usb, via my problem09:50
odixand i want a nix flavor09:50
sacarlsonodix: you can use this method, I've used it to boot from my sdb hard disk http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=128860409:50
sacarlsonodix: I just add an entry in my grub to boot the iso09:51
odixwell im in windows09:51
kriumelinux its an illegal operative system used by hackers, if you dident know09:51
lesshaste_ I am apparently missing the Application manuals for KDE. How do I get them?09:52
sacarlsonodix: oh this only works if you have a bootable grub2 harddisk with any linux on it09:52
=== Guest46374 is now known as LULLING
odixya see ;\09:52
odixtheres my problem09:52
sacarlsonodix: but you can use a usbflash as that also points out09:53
llutz_odix: look at grub4-dos, should work with windows too09:53
odixthis comp doest boot usb09:53
odixits junk09:53
odixfdd hdd lan and cdrom09:53
odixllutz thank you09:53
odixbut if i added a boot sector str8 to an iso it would launch ?09:54
kriumecan i hack someone if i know their IP?09:54
lesshaste_how do I get kde_application_manuals ?09:54
odixdoesn't an os technically have to be reading the iso first ?09:54
kriumecan i hack someone if i know their IP?09:54
odixiso isnt asm right09:54
sacarlsonllutz_ that might work I guess odix: maybe that's worth a try grub4-dos with an entry like what's seen in link above09:54
odixkriume yes bro09:54
odixrm -rf *thereip*09:54
odixwhich will do nothing09:54
odixcause im nice09:55
odixok well worth a shot thanks guys09:55
llutz_kriume: try it, use and hack as you can but take your offtopic things out of here, use #ubuntu-offtopic09:55
odixkriume you can try ping to death to09:55
Frazerllutz_: I'm gonna try to set some aliases eth0:0 eth0:1 with the IP depending on the network and after I just down eth0:0 and up eth0:1 to switch between them ; is it the good solution?09:56
odixoh wait09:56
llutz_Frazer: whatever works for you. i'd prefer "speaking" aliases, but it won't matter09:57
odixllutz, or carlson, i just point grub to the iso on the fat32 partition? or how would i go about oding that09:57
odixcreate a new one ?09:57
=== io_ is now known as io
odixput dos cd emulation software on a fat32 with the iso ?09:57
odixif they even make that09:57
llutz_odix: grub4dos.sf.net   should have documentation09:58
odixif it works im kissing you09:58
odixno homo09:58
odixcan i say that ?09:58
odixdoes no homo negate everything homoish09:58

sagaciDo you have a question10:00
iff_does anyone knows good OS for netbook? it must be fast, functional and with good customization. tried jelios (holy shit) and kubuntu 10.10 (too hard for my silly brain)10:00
odixNETBOOK edition10:01
llutz_netbook, fast ...? DOS10:01
jattchrome os10:01
FrazerAnyway thx for your help llutz_ .10:01
iff_odix: thought of it, but there is one question about customization. does it have "plasma"? hope not10:02
odixplasma ?10:02
odixwhats that kde eye candy?10:02
odixim sure it doesnt10:02
llutz_Frazer: youd google for ifplugd/guessnet/ifupdown  that was my working solution for years to change between networks10:02
odixlook it up its on the site, its made for netbooks10:02
overcluckeri preffer ubuntu desktop + maximus over netbook edition on my eeepc10:03
odixwhat do you want out of your netbook10:04
odixand what are its specs10:04
iff_odix: all i want from it, just browsing, listening music, watching videos, some work with documents, nothing special. it is eeepc 901. i had ubuntu on it, but she ate all free space. i have 14gb hard drive, and after a year, there is only 1gb left10:06
jattchrome os10:06
iff_jatt: i like google, but chrome os is pretty new, and i'm a little afraid of it. the best choice i see, it's ubuntu netbook edition, yet10:07
zvacetiff_:  for listening music and watch movies put those files on other device10:08
FrazerYep llutz_ you're right but the switch must be controlled by the user (by clicking on an icon reprensenting a network or another) that's why I think I don't need ifplugd or guessnet !10:08
llutz_Frazer: oh ok, in that case: can't networkmanager do that?10:08
FrazerNeed to do a script, no graphical mode :p10:08
odixhmm or should i create partition, install linux via CD emulation thne edit boot sectors10:09
iff_zvacet: yeah, that will help a lot, he-he10:09
llutz_Frazer: non graphical icon click? anyways, hope your solution works10:09
Frazerllutz_: user are not friendly with the configuration, I have to provide some icons and when they click on, it calls a script that does the job :p10:10
zvacetiff_: it is really small hd what else I can tell you10:10
sacarlsonodix: maybe install with wubi and use wubi install to install onto a real ext4 partitions10:11
zvacetiff_: it is not about any linux distro it is about hd you have and things you want to do10:11
sacarlsonodix: one of the problems I did have installing from a harddisk was that I couldn't partition from the same disk I was running from so make sure it creates a root partition in ramdisk whatever you do10:13
zvacetiff_ : if you really want small linux distro you can try http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm10:14
MarkAngHello everyone, trying to install Ubuntu server on an old Dell PowerEdge server, but since we don't have a DVD we are trying to use a USB stick. We can get into the menu, but when we select the option "Install" and hit enter, the menu just skips, as if you would use F5 on a file folder, but remains the same. Any help?10:14
ActionParsnipzvacet: xpud is smaller and boots a tonne faster :D10:14
overcluckerI'm running ubuntu desktop on my eeepc, and only 7G is used on /10:14
zvacetActionParsnip:  tnx for tip I will check that10:14
MarkAngDon't wanna sound naggy, but it's kind of important.10:15
MarkAngHang on, my colleagues appear to have it working....10:16
odixcarlson, i sorta understand that last one10:16
odixxpis fat32no ?10:16
odixcant i just resize while in windows10:16
odixthen create etx 4 and swap, cd emul, install to ext 4/10:17
odixi dunno...10:17
sacarlsonodix: I think they have tools for that like partitionmagic so I guess yes10:17
odixif i could just boot from usb or cd10:18
FloodBot1odix: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.10:18
MarkAngOkay, new question: does anybody know of any good imaging software that works on the Ubuntu server (latest distro)? We need to make an image off of an existing pc, and then distribute that image to all the other pc's we're trying to image.10:18
MarkAngThe image to be made is of an ubuntu pc, too.10:19
MarkAngjatt I mean image as in system image, not image file lol.10:19
ravenhow to export mails from evolution10:19
sacarlsonodix: you don't have a usb flash to boot from?  they do have windows programs to load them bootable10:20
ActionParsnipMarkAng: partimage is pretty sweet, you'll need the partition offline (unmounted) to image10:20
researcher1while installing I get "The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources." How to do away with it10:20
ericyllutz_: You say you never used/use synaptic: How do you do searches for packages and how do you read brief details about packages.10:20
ActionParsnipraviepic3: http://www.stchman.com/export_evolution.html10:21
MarkAngActionParsnip: does the program offer the option to unmount the partitions?10:21
ActionParsnipresearcher1: can you give a pastebin of the output of: sudo apt-get update; lsb_release -a    Thanks10:21
llutz_ericy: aptitude, apt-cache, apt-file10:21
odixsacarlson: the comp wont boot from flash10:22
odixits no in the bios10:22
odixonly FDD HDD LAN CD10:22
phoenixsamprashow to install ie9 on ubuntu?10:22
MarkAngThe PC's we're trying to image are freshly set up, the server still needs to be installed and it also needs to be configured.10:22
ActionParsnipMarkAng: no you do that yourself, use it in a livecd as the partition will be mounted and in use if youo do it from the OS installed on the same partition10:22
ericyllutz_: (I personally also prefer working in cli, but only need/use synaptic for research.)10:22
ActionParsnipphoenixsampras: possibly wine10:22
researcher1ActionParsnip: ok. soon10:22
ActionParsnipphoenixsampras: virtualbox will make it more reliable10:22
llutz_ericy: look at those 3, no need for synaptic at all (imo)10:23
MarkAngOn that note, not all of the pcs have cd drives. Old Dell All-in-One's, some have a drawer instead of a drive.10:23
phoenixsamprasActionParsnip: what about jack daniels?10:23
ActionParsnipphoenixsampras: possibly, might short the wifis though :)10:24
sacarlsonodix: there is a program call plop boot manager that runs in windows that will make any computer boot a usb10:24
odixcause i already have ubuntu on the usb10:24
odixrunning and everything10:24
phoenixsamprasActionParsnip: well, from a cowboy , to cowboy salut!10:24
odixworks on my netbook10:24
sacarlsonodix: see http://www.plop.at/en/bootmanager.html10:24
kriumeis having my SSH config file the port 23, instead of 22, a bad idea??10:24
raviepic3ActionParsnip, wow, i had this question long time back. howd you remember it ! ?10:24
ActionParsnipraviepic3: huh?10:25
researcher1ActionParsnip: the error is gone10:26

kriumellutz_ would it be better if i changed it to 2829179037 for example?10:27
llutz_kriume: you can change it to whatever you want, it doesn't matter10:27
ericyllutz_: You say you never used/use synaptic: How do you do searches for packages and how do you read brief details about packages.10:27
ericyllutz_: (I personally also prefer working in cli, but only need/use synaptic for research.)10:28
llutz_ericy: apt-cache search pattern10:28
llutz_ericy: aptitude show package10:28
kriumellutz_ what do u mean by security by obscurity anyway?10:28
llutz_kriume: changing ssh-port wonÄt increase security as its easy to find the new port (nmap -sV), but commonly used10:29
MarkAngActionParsnip: we are going to try to use a Ubuntu server boot cd. can you describe the process of unmounting a partition with the livecd and imaging it?10:29
overcluckerkriume: ports only go up to 6553510:29
ericyllutz_: But how do (where do you) you read properties and descriptions of packages?10:29
llutz_ericy: aptitude show package10:30
ActionParsnipresearcher1: you missed the first half. If you copy all the command as one it's better. Can you give the output of: sudo apt-get update10:30
xjjoin #ubuntu-tw10:30
kriumeok but if i am connected on someone else's wireless network can they see what goes over the ssh link when i have ssh-agent running?10:30
llutz_kriume: read how ssh works and answer yourself10:30
ActionParsnipkriume: the session is encrypted, so no10:31
ericyllutz_: OK, I will try: aptitude show package10:31
llutz_ericy: package = to be replaced by a valid packagename of course10:31

kriumellutz_:i have readen ofcourse, but the setup of ssh was looking so simple.. so i am just wondering10:31
ericyllutz_: OK.10:32
ericyzvacet: OK.10:32
MarkAngCan anyone walk me through the process of unmounting a partition with a LiveCD and making an image of the unmounted partition?10:33
a-oneHello vvsem10:34
nishantI think you have to make an iso of the disc and then mount the partition using the FS for livecd10:34
=== zink is now known as ZiNk
MarkAngI want to UNmount a partition, not mount.10:34
nishantare you in LiveC now ?10:35
odixcarlson: looks a bit over my head, but im going to try10:35
nishantI think tar would be a good option for you10:35
MarkAngNo, I'm not. I want to write it down so we can do it when we're done with installing the server.10:35
ActionParsnipMarkAng: if you boot the livecd the system partition will be unmounted but the swap may get used. You can use umount to unmount the partitions you want unmounted#10:35
MarkAngCommand line?10:36
llutz_MarkAng: "sudo umount /media/*" "sudo swapoff -a"  to be on the safe side10:36
ActionParsnipMarkAng: its no different to an installed system, if you run:  mount   you will see the mounted file systems. You will need a storage (NFS, Samba, FTP, USB/Firewire) mounted writable to recieve the data10:36
nishantActionParsnip, the hdd doesnt get mounted by default ?10:37
nicofs_My xubuntu doesn't start anymore - i get as far as the splash screen (console says "Checking battery state... [ok]") - and then it stalls...10:37
nishantdo you need to take back up of a partition10:37
MarkAngBut the installed system is Windows, so we can't use commands.10:37
MarkAngI mean we can't check it like you described10:38
nishantyou are on a LiveCD , and you want to umount what ?10:38
nishantwhat does mount show , does it display the NTFS Windows ?10:38
MarkAngI am not on a livecd right now, but will be soon.10:38
odixHarddisk install using the Windows boot menu (2K, XP, VISTA, Win7)10:38
odixi assme\\ume thats what i want to do10:38
ActionParsnipnishant: you can't mount drives10:38
MarkAngI apparently need to unmount a partition to image it using partimage.10:39
nishantActionParsnip, you cant mount drives in a LiveVD session ?10:39
ActionParsnipnishant: the partitions in the drive don't get mounted automatically when you boot livecd. The swap space may be in use though10:39
ActionParsnipnishant: you can't mount drives ever, you mount partitions10:39
llutz_you mount _filesystems_ not partitions10:39
ActionParsnipnishant: even if a drive has 1 partition taking 100% of the space, you stil mount the partition10:39
nishantRight , but does it allow mounting , I think it should . Yes I mean that10:40
ActionParsnipnishant: theres a difference10:40
ericyMarkAng: I would use: umount -vn /media/*   and then use "pcopy" to copy a partition.10:40
ActionParsnipnishant: yes the places menu will list the partitions accessible10:40
nishantI see10:40
ActionParsnipllutz_: "The most common thing to be mounted is a hard drive partition"  source: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount10:41
MarkAngAre there any programs similar to ZENworks imaging system?10:41
llutz_ActionParsnip: man mount10:41
nishantBasically you partition a HDD and the install OS in one of the partitions which is the primary parition .10:41
MarkAngI'm not too sure about using commands <_<"10:41
llutz_ActionParsnip: take LVM spread over several drives, take a drive not holding a single partition. then you see, you're wrong10:41
llutz_ActionParsnip: its a common mistake to speak about "mounting partitions"10:42
ActionParsnipllutz_: I guess its more generic to include NFS, Samba etc10:42
ericyMarkAng: OK, everyone, MarkAng prefers a GUI method.10:42
llutz_ActionParsnip: you always mount filesystem, whatever contains them10:42
ActionParsniplittle lesson for us all :)10:43
llutz_ActionParsnip: "whatis mount" makes it clear, authors should know what their tool does ;)10:44
cdavisHow does on get a list of the nicks on a channel? I cannot remember the command to do so.10:44
ActionParsnipnishant: windows incorrectly calls them drives, and newcomers to the OS call stuff drives incorrectly, due to C drive and other such stuff10:44
raviepic3ActionParsnip, thank you10:44
nishantyou format a partition or several partition together as a filesystem and you mount them toe the / directory . is that right?10:44
odixyou mount your filesystem to /10:45
nishantyes ActionParsnip , drives are a misnomer10:45
ericyMarkAng: You could (in GUI) unmount (and get a graphic view of all partitions) via Disk Utility (or GParted).10:45
odixim just going to say yes10:45
odixyes your right ;]10:45
nishantTechnically the wording should be mount the paritions you have formated with so and so filesystem to the / - Fine ?10:46
llutz_nishant: no10:46
ericycdavis: /names10:46
llutz_nishant: a filesystem can be spread over more than 1 partition, thats why you can't "mount partitions" then10:46
nishantparition if it is not using LVM atleast llutz10:46
llutz_nishant: network-filesystem also don't use a partition10:47
llutz_nishant: "you mount filesystems" is always valid10:47
nishantI see10:47
cdavisericy: Thanks10:48
llutz_nishant: type "whatis mount" in a terminal an read. thats what the authors claim their tool does10:48
nishantFine will do that10:48
MarkAngThanks guys, will use Gparted. MarkAng out.10:50
bubblegummybearhi there, I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10 (the CD from October 10), installed all the latest updates, however, I keep having the same issue like I previously had: Notify-OSD bubbles place one place too low10:51
a-oneWhere did you guys?10:52
Nevyn1word 2.0!10:55
stianhjbubblegummybear, what do you mean one place too low?10:56
stianhjbubblegummybear, they're not supposed to be all the way up at the panel..10:56
bubblegummybearstianhj: the sound bubble comes right under the top panel, but something else like an internet connection comes under that bubble, now you might be thinking "well duh, because the sound bubble is on top of it", but it's not10:56
stianhjbubblegummybear, it's the way it's supposed to be10:57
bubblegummybearstianhj: why is it supposed to be that way?10:57
Syphilluslol isnt it usually whatever proccess was running first on top10:57
stianhjbubblegummybear, i have no idea, but it is10:58
bubblegummybearstianhj: shouldn't a bubble always be right under the top panel? and where there are multiple bubbles, then put them under each other?10:58
Syphillusdoes it matter10:58
bubblegummybearSyphillus: actually yeah10:58
bubblegummybear*the "where" in my previous IM should be "when"10:59

stianhjbubblegummybear, they don't even stack anymore.. getting multiple notifications will just queue them11:00

ubottubilal03: To replicate your packages selection on another machine (or restore it if re-installing), you can type « aptitude  --display-format '%p' search '?installed!?automatic' > ~/my-packages », move the file "my-packages" to the other machine, and there type « sudo xargs aptitude --schedule-only install < my-packages ; sudo aptitude install » - See also !automate12:40
Emanon1or save your /usr and /home folders12:40

Emanon1but jrib's was better12:40
Emanon1way better12:40
ericygrom: The problem is that you have specified the same mount point for 3 different partitions...12:41
bilal03if i use another drive just for home folder, after reinstalling what should i do12:41
Emanon1just point the installer at the /home directory as /home and tell it not to reformat12:41
dejan_in wget -r is for ignoring robots instructions? ^^12:41

AdvoWorkhow come im doing vim <tab> for a file, it sees it, it exists(its 9GB) but when i do vim thefile it states new file?12:42

joe_9How can I troubleshoot my system?12:42
bilal03if power failed then ubuntu start disk checking, but after disk checking, it reboots the system another time,, why??12:42
ericygrom: Try just adding one at a time. First just add the line for sda1, and test it.12:43
gromwill do, brb :)12:43
Emanon1AdvoWork: when you open it with vim you have to specify the whole path12:43
Emanon1or be in the last directory12:43
phoenixsamprasjoe_9:  do you have a bar?12:43
joe_9phoenixsampras, what do you mean a bar?12:44
Emanon1the interface bars top and bottom (or top and left in 11.04) joe_912:44
AdvoWorkEmanon1, i am though, else the tab wouldnt have found the file name?12:45
joe_9Yes, I have bars.12:45

jribAdvoWork: pastebin the vim command you ran12:45
Emanon1unless the search functions on the whole system and the open only on the current or specified directory AdvoWork12:45
AdvoWorkjrib, ive tried "vim sql_dump.sql" like i would with any other file12:45
joe_9I am using this bar called Avant Window Navigator. All the icons on it turn black/red, and all the icons on my desktop turn into an icon that seems to represents "a missing icon"12:46
AdvoWorkEmanon1, ive also tried "vim /home/user/Desktop/sql_dump.sql" same problem12:46
jribAdvoWork: and "ls sql_dump.sql" returns?12:46
Emanon1!hi > Abhijit12:46
AdvoWorkjrib, it returns sql_dump.sql12:46

NorrlanningHello! anyone that knows how to restore manpages if /usr/share/man is deleted? it doesn't work just to reinstall the manpages :-/12:47

AbhijitNorrlanning, copy paste from live cd?12:47
fairuzis there any function like atoi but converts hexas in string to integer?12:47
Emanon1IDK then AdvoWork. Hope someone else does.12:47
dejan_omg linux is power no? :)12:48
Emanon1Norrlanning: try purging the man pages then reinstalling?12:48
joe_9Also sometimes when I start my PC my login's favicon is missing. How can I check for errors my system might be having?12:48
jribAdvoWork: should work.  Note a 9gb file will probably take a while to load if you have things like syntax highlighting enabled.  You may want to try #vim to troubleshoot inside vim12:48
NorrlanningAbhijit: Ok, so there´s no better way? I mean one should think that you could reinstall them someway?12:48
NorrlanningEmanon1: Already tried that12:48
AbhijitNorrlanning, there may be but i dont know12:48
Emanon1Actual purge? not just remove? hmm not sure12:48
NorrlanningAbhijit: Ok, well thanks alot though. I guess that's the way I have to go then. Thanks for your help though12:49
AbhijitNorrlanning, welcome12:49
Emanon1you know there are online man pages as well12:49
joe_9is the comnmand "dmesg | more", is this what I should type when I experience this problem in the future?12:50
NorrlanningEmanon1: Yeah I know, thanks for the tip though :-) I'm making a custom distro and we stripped the system of manpages. However now we're thinking of reinstall them.12:51
oohow can i not be reminded by the system messages?12:51

taigaruan, k, i think i'll use lubuntu but it's still kind of heavy, thanks16:19
ericyJo: nice.16:19
damirockand 1 more question. That's about spellchecker. As i'm russian - my system lang is RU. Everything is fine with russian texts, but when i open some documents on english or right now while typing this language in xchat - every word is being highlighted like incorrect16:20
Dannydtaiga: crunchbang16:20
damirockso, how can i solve that?16:20
taigaDannyd, what?16:20
cablopone question... i have a spare old computer and wanted to make it run with Ubuntu16:20
ericyJo: nice little Toshiba notebook'16:20
Dannydyou can try crunchbang...i think its still based on ubuntu...super fast16:20
JoOh, wait, the bios update lets me boot from sd cards.16:21
BluesKajcablop, how old and what specs ?16:21
taigaDannyd, nice16:21
JoWould that work?16:21
taigabased on debian they say16:21
cablopone question... i have a spare old computer and wanted to make it run with Ubuntu16:21
ericyJo: I think you need to attach an external CD.16:21
cablopi has just 512 MB of ram and old athlon of 1.4 GHz and a Gefore MX440... is that hardware too old to make it run?16:21
JoEricy: I've tried with 2 external drives I have16:21
Jocomputer has issues with both of them16:21
tjiggi_focablop, that's a statement - not a question!16:21
cabloptoo old then?16:22
BluesKajcablop, your RAM is bit low , ubuntu will run ok on it tho16:22
tjiggi_focablop, that'll run ubuntu, xubuntu even better16:22
DannydIts really fast though...coming from ubuntu I was shocked..16:22
ruancablop: yeah, you might need a lot of swap to compensate16:23
dryicebombcablop, it should run ok, a bit low on ram, maybe you should look at a xubuntu16:23
francesco_xubuntu should be okay with it tho cablop16:23
taigaDannyd, it's coming from debian16:23
cablopi have another computer a little less old, with 2 GB on it...  and maybe if i put 1.5GB in one and 1 GB in the older... or beter t keep the 2GB in one of hem?16:23
DannydOk fine you are right16:23
GaryDcablop: i am using lubuntu with 512MB RAM. it's like lightning!16:23
taigaGaryD, how about 196MB RAM then? :P16:24
JoSo does anyone know if booting from sd cards works?16:24
JoThat might be my only option unless I can get one of my external drives to cooperate.16:24
Chr|sdoes ubuntu have just a cli you can login instead of the gnome gui?16:24
ruanChr|s: yes16:25
cablopJo afaik it works... but not a good idea, SD and Flash cards degrade too fast from writing, so you'll kill your card so fast16:25

cablopChr|s: just remove gdm and start x only when needed16:25
ericyJo: Yes,  booting from sd cards works.16:25
