chairmaoreally annoying because sometimes it works00:01
cayneehw: and that is where my problem started... I question if I should even be playing around with scripting an entire server installation if I have a hard time getting something so simple to work...00:02

jukenehw: indeed, lots of traffic, hehe00:02

caynejuken: I have actually seen a couple of those before... I might need to look into getting my paws on the BASH one00:04
high-rezBack again.  I cannot figure out for the life of my what the 'correct' way is to obtain the /exact/ kernel source for the version i'm running including the version magic - so that I can build a kernel module against the specific version of the kernel i'm currently running (which is likely to be an older version than what is current in ubuntu).  Any of you know how this would be achieved ?00:05
ehwcayne: True enough; otoh doing it all by hand each time can introduce other unexpectedness00:05

TohuwPolah: The minimal install contains significantly more than that. Its primary purpose is to not include packages in the image. Rather, it downloads them all using a text-based installer. See http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/minimal to get an idea.00:24

ericyThedemon007: What is that from?02:58
mickster04futr_vision: not really, follow the on screen instructions :p02:59
jrtaylorivWhen I try to put a Windows recovery disk into my CD-ROM drive (on either of my Ubuntu laptops), it makes a bunch of whirring and clicking noises but generally won't mount the disk. By insert-eject-repeating I have gotten it to mount once, but it generally won't. I get the following from dmesg when I pop it in: http://pastebin.com/6pmVJXFG02:59
futr_visionleave mount point blank?02:59
jrtaylorivReally I'm just interested in mounting the disk image so that I can run it in qemu02:59
joshmclvl1futr_vision: you'll probably be ok, but I'd let someone else more knowledgeable answer first.02:59
mickster04futr_vision: nope03:00
jrtaylorivIs there any way that I could use dd to pull the contents of the disk, even if I can't mount it properly?03:00
mickster04futr_vision: if it's just one big partition for the whole thing use /03:00
Aginorfutr_vision, be very sure you select the right disk if you repartition/wipe things03:00
Thedemon007blkid | pastebinit ericy03:00
ericyThedemon007: OK, the last pastebin was output of blkid command.  Show me sfdisk -l  with your 4GB usb stick plugged in.03:00
ericyThedemon007: OK, the last pastebin was output of blkid command.  Show me sfdisk -l  with your 4GB usb stick plugged in.03:01
Aginorjrtayloriv, yes, there's many alternatives for you03:01
jrtaylorivAginor, What would be the easiest way for me to just make an ISO image?03:01
futr_visionI think I am only going to use one partition unless there is a better option. I do plan on copying web pages from the Server 2003 install over to Ubuntu and vice versa.03:01
Thedemon007sfdisk -l no show nothing03:01
Aginorjrtayloriv, but you will most likely end up dumping the entire disk/filesystem to a file03:01
Thedemon007sfdisk -l no show nothing ericy03:01
jrtaylorivAginor, That's fine with me, as long as I can create a mountable ISO image from it.03:02
ericyThedemon007: sudo sfdisk -l03:02
Aginorjrtayloriv, proper ISO file system or a general disk image?03:02
ruani want to install usplash. i cant do it from terminal, and synaptic suggests that i remove ALL of my packages first03:02
ericyThedemon007: Run the command: sudo sfdisk -l03:02
Aginorjrtayloriv, are you getting read errors from the disk?03:02
futr_visionAginor, that is something i fear doing but I think I have it. I am planning on installing on the only drive not showing NTFS.03:02
Thedemon007http://pastebin.com/v4gCjZGF ericy03:02
giikerexit03:03
Aginorfutr_vision, if you want to be certain, unplug the other drives :D03:03
jrtaylorivAginor, Yes, if "Buffer I/O error" is what you mean: --> http://pastebin.com/6pmVJXFG03:03
futr_visionaginor, I guess that is a pretty full proof way of doing it03:03
ericyThedemon007: See the /dev/sdd1 , that is what you should mount...03:04
ruanhow can i install usplash without removing all of my packages03:04
Aginorfutr_vision, that's what I do on the rare occasions I need to install windows. windows have eaten too many of my partitions for me to even let it touch my real OS03:04
ericyThedemon007: .. but tell me what you have installed on it ?03:04
Aginorjrtayloriv, that looks like an unhappy disk :D03:04
xlordi have a question, is any one can help. i use tcpdump to get03:04
futr_visionAm I going to be able to share files between Server 2003 and Ubuntu?03:05
noobwhy can't i sudo aptitude install lekhonee-gnome in ubuntu 10.1003:06
xlordi have a question , is any one can help. i use tcpdump to get dns packet, but i only can get response packet, no query packet03:06
jrtaylorivAginor, Do you have any idea why I would have been able to get it to mount once though?03:06
Aginorjrtayloriv, I would recommend that you try to use ddrescue http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html on the relevant partition of your device03:06
soulnoob sudo03:06
xlordis anyone knows why03:06
knightragei'm running 2.6.32-28-generic... how can i find out if my SATA hard drives are hot-swappable?03:06
android2I have a quick question.  If I have two volumes on my hard disk and have windows 7 on one and ubuntu on the other, what is the best way to remove ubuntu?03:06
jrtaylorivAginor, OK -- I'll look into that. Thanks for your help.03:06
soulnoob: sudo aptitude install <package>03:06
Aginorjrtayloriv, if it's a cd, you might have a dirty laser in the device, the cd or dvd might be dirty/scratched03:06
noobsoul, sudo aptitude install lekhonee-gnome umet deps03:07
Aginorjrtayloriv, you could try to carefully wipe it off with a microfiber cloth, from the centre and out, not in circles03:07
Thedemon007ericy i believe what is a problem of kernel i compiled my kernel03:07
jrtaylorivAginor, The CD is brand new, no scratches. I just got it in the mail. I'll try to take out the CD drive and clean it out.03:07
soulnoob: you must configure ur depostories03:07
Aginorjrtayloriv, have you tried it in a different cd?03:08
ericyThedemon007: Oh, yes I remember you discuss it with another person..03:08
ruanhow can i install a usplash theme without usplash installed?03:08
Aginorjrtayloriv, try a different drive first, is my recommendation03:08
ericyThedemon007: ...but can you (or do you want to) try another  usb stick ?03:09
jrtaylorivAginor -- Actually, I just had a brain fart. It's happening on two different laptops, so it's unlikely to be the disk drive.03:09
jrtaylorivIt's probably a corrupt CD. Which would make sense that Gateway would send me one, considering how crappy their hardware is.03:09
jrtaylorivIt's only fitting that their software is the same quality as my laptop.03:09

nsh_what's the difference between *-desktop-* and *-alternative-* releases?03:10
Aginorjrtayloriv, but dodgy cd sounds like a good theory :)03:10
jrtaylorivAginor, I'll try ddrescue and come back and whine some more if that doesn't work :) thanks again.03:11
soulnsh: alternive is not as packed as Desktop veriosns03:11

nsh_oh, ok03:11
xanguatext install nsh_03:11
Aginorjrtayloriv, it'll take long and you probably have to run it several times, so you have been warned03:11

wjwjimmy_birer sources.list http://paste.ubuntu.com/581909/03:27
wjwjimmy_birer How do I get the sys version?03:27
abstraktfutr_vision, specifically you should read the manual regarding making a dual boot with two systems that are not both microsoft based, i.e. one MS and one Linux based03:27
abstraktfutr_vision, because you will most likely need to use a different boot loader, but it's still gonna go in basically the same place which is the MBR (master boot record)03:27

Belial`try an LTS release.03:39
Belial`10.04, see if that hangs.03:39
NikkiGrrljimmy....I have tried crunch and Puppy, both work, but neither even let you run outside Root, so they're basically useless03:39
=== root is now known as Guest69991
Belial`if it doesn't, you know it might definitely be kernel related.03:39
NikkiGrrlBelial`, the various 10.04 flavors, (standard, Xubuntu, and server) are what I HAVE been trying, and yes, all three hang, leading me, as I have already stated, to suspect the kernel03:40
Guest69991cls_123103:40
Belial`ah, well then give 10.10 a shot03:40
jimmy_birernikkigirl,did you know that there`s this invention called ADDUSER!!!03:40
hiexpoBelial`, nah less ram no gdm like ubuntu gnome orkde   thats why it was made minimal with lxde03:40

rwwwjw: Alrighty. Your problem was that your computer didn't have a list of packages available from the repository servers. The usual reason for that happening is 1) the computer is new and hasn't contacted the server at all yet, 2) you made major changes to sources.list. "sudo apt-get update" connects to the servers and downloads a packages list.03:43
jimmy_birerwjw,ping us.ubuntu.com03:43
jimmy_birerand tell us if it works03:43
rwwjimmy_birer: Their problem's fixed.03:43
jimmy_birerok ok03:43
NikkiGrrl@jimmy : the reason I am still not using Puppy or crunchbang is due to being unwilling to install all my packages at every reboot....that said, you say ALL Ubuntu derivatives will require 686+?03:43
wjwrww, and jimmy_birer, thanks!03:44
ScuniziHow do I keep cairo doc from loading on boot.. I'm getting one instance on the non-opengl and the opengl version at the same time03:44
NikkiGrrlif so, can I not perhaps use a 386 kernel from Debian or elsewhere?03:44
rwwwjw: aptitude assumes that any package it can't match to a package list was installed from a .deb or obsolete (removed from the repositories), but in this case it was just that it didn't have any package lists to match against.03:44
jimmy_birerno problem wjw03:44
jimmy_birerNikkiGrrl,debian 5.0 has 386 support03:44
wjwrww, so the update is kind of key with a newly installed old system.03:44
jimmy_bireralso debian supports many many more arhitectures03:44
ericydeepu: Try using alias command OR make a scritpt file.03:44
futr_visionWhere do you install the boot loader on a triple boot system (3 hard drives)03:44

NikkiGrrlcheers!03:44
jimmy_birercheers son03:45
rwwwjw: yep. On desktop systems, it tends to get done by Update Manager before the user tries to install packages. Server runs across this problem more often.03:45

soulfor Lucid users such as myself, I highly recomend this site for upgrading the repos... http://theindexer.wordpress.com/2010/03/21/to-do-list-after-installing-ubuntu-10-04-aka-lucid-lynx/   good stuff!03:45
wjwI'm installing Xubuntu.03:45
jont2383looking for someone who has installed ubuntu on a powermac g5 PPC03:45
ericyNikkiGrrl: jimmy_birer: hiexpo: As we speak right now, I'm running on Lubuntu live-cd in a 4GB usb memory stick.03:46
xangua!ppc | jont238303:46
ubottujont2383: PowerPC.  Formerly used by Apple for the Macintosh line of computers. Variants are now used in popular gaming consoles. PPC was a fully supported Ubuntu architecture up to and including edgy. It is now a community port, see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/PowerPCFAQ03:46
wjwWhat's cool is I'm doing it over ssh from my machine running Ubuntu, so I don't have to keep leaping out of my chair and into the one in front of the other computer.03:46
rwwjont2383: You may want to just ask your question and see if anyone comes out of the woodwork.03:46
hiexposoul, not a good idea to recomend people changing there repos03:46
jont2383rww lol i just want to know if someone has successfully installed ubuntu on a powermac g5 ppc lol03:47
soulhiexpo: why not? too easy to get messed up I guess?03:47
hiexpoyep  soul and this is ubuntu support not off channel support to change there repos03:48
soulhiexpo: gotcha, that makes perfect sense to me03:48
rwwjont2383: I've seen Ubuntu on someone else's iMac G5, so yes.03:48
jont2383thats it, i'm trying to decide if i should try it out on my main hd which i cant restore if the ubuntu dosent work... or go buy a new hd and try that03:48
rwwjont2383: Unless the compatibility's gotten better since about hardy, though, it's kind of a pain (I tried it and gave up after a couple of hours because I didn't care that much and was just curious)03:49
jont2383rww : do you know how well it worked compatability wise with software etc03:49
jimmy_birerjont2383,powermac g5 is good03:49
jimmy_bireri had a g5 emulator03:49
soulhiexpo: but I will say this, that site can help them peice back their repo's, only reason why I mentioned it... my repos were messed up and that got me going back smoothe, so really it could be ubuntu support too :)03:49
jimmy_birerand it worked fine03:49
hiexpojont2383, have you tryed the live cd if it works ok live it will work installed03:49
rwwjont2383: In general, PPC compatibility is reasonable. You don't get non-free software (Flash being the one people care about) unless it comes in a PPC version, but almost all of the free software stuff in the repositories is there.03:50
jont2383yeah i have this amazing 16gb ram dual quad core PPC dual 1gb nvidia cards but it wont run any new mac osx software so i want to turn it into a nasty fast linux desktop server03:50

battlehandsmy laptop isnt recognizing any cds... I changed the boot order in the bios to boot from cd first, and it still completely skips the install cd that I have in there when I boot... how can I reformat my laptop without a cd?04:01

battlehandslandingonwater_, I need to reformat quickly.  Can I DL the iso and set it up on a flashdrive quickly?04:04
landingonwater_jimmy_birer: If the card is not seen by ubuntu 10.10, the what good is software ? there must be some hickup in 10.10 resulting in this problem. can i copy some stuff directly from peppermint to fix It ?04:04
battlehandssoreau, yes, and its not even recognizing any CDs that are inserted.04:04
landingonwater_battlehands: use pendrive to put ubuntu on the stick. install from there. pretty fast procedure.04:05

fxhpHow do I set the disk path in vmbuilder04:09
landingonwater_battlehands: installing from the stick let you create dualboot, or start from scratch.04:09
battlehandslandingonwater_, I just want to start from scratch04:10
landingonwater_battlehands: casper partition does take som time, so if you dont wanna use the stick for anything else dont go for 4 gb casper.04:10

rww!latest04:42
ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, "latest" may not be a good idea.

DarkSectorericy, correct, the highlighted one was my swap until recently :D06:10

ejvrww, didn't know what, only used ubuntu server, darksector, what you could try doing is rsyncing or dding 'large' portions of your OS to the spare space, stuff like /var, /tmp, /opt tends to be heavier, and then adjust your mounting scheme in /etc/fstab accordingly, YMMV.06:42
ericyDarkSector: You have to gparted "resize"--shift that big 73GB partition which will take MANY hours (it will have to move or shift 73 GB of data 'up').06:42
DarkSectorejv, good option06:42

Guest78044do you know if certain font types are easier to read or make the reader more susceptible to convincing?08:12
GeneralKqkit, ericy : See, the drive also seems to show up as /dev/dm-008:12
StarminnSoftdroid: Certain apps (just by the way they're made) don't play well with various color schemes. For example, Firefox and OpenOffice/LibreOffice are notorious culprits for misbehaving with dark themes.08:13
SoftdroidStarminn: Thanks for your reply. Is it possible to change the themes?08:13
StarminnSoftdroid: While I've seen some fixes every so often I've never tried any of them because to get the normal white back it looks like you'd have to edit it by hand again. I could find them if you want, ubt in general the rule of thumb here is "Don't use dark themes if you need those menus."08:13
StarminnSoftdroid: I'm talking about system themes, which is what you've done to get that to happen.08:14
StarminnSoftdroid: System->Preferences->Appearance08:14
qkitGeneralk: hmm...try to mount using /dev/dm-0p1 rather then the sda08:14
shark1Thank you  ericy  I'm trying ubuntu08:15
StarminnSoftdroid: The ones that come default should be fine but some you get from GNOME-Look may not play so well.08:15
SoftdroidStarminn: The menus are unreadable but when I move the mouse over the items its readable again. Is that the problem you are talking about?08:15
StarminnSoftdroid: Yep.08:16
SoftdroidStarminn: I don't use dark theme, but I have changed the theme08:16
GeneralKqkit, Again, there's nothing other than dm-0 there's no dm-01 etc.08:16
SoftdroidStarminn: How can I change the theme back to default?08:16
ericyshark1: good luck to you. Have fun.08:17
StarminnSoftdroid: http://imagebin.org/143654 and to change themes just go to System->Preferences->Appearance and choose one.08:17
qkitGeneralk: but your gparted show that the /dev/dm-0p1 is available? but when you run the mount command. It return no such partition?08:18
SoftdroidStarminn: Thanks. You are using dark theme :)08:19
GeneralKqkit, Oh, cool... there's a gui for parted. :P08:19

shark1do you like it08:19
StarminnSoftdroid: Another thing to take ntoe of is when using dark themes (mine doesn't do it because it's a white foreground but the ones that are *really* dark) the icons go into "high contrast" mode in Open/Libre Office.08:19
qkit:)08:20
ericyGeneralK:    sfdisk -l      blkid    and    df -h show?08:20

GeneralKqkit, NTFS signature is missing. Failed to mount '/dev/dm-0': Invalid argument The device '/dev/dm-0' doesn't seem to have a valid NTFS. Maybe the wrong device is used? Or the whole disk instead of a partition (e.g. /dev/sda, not /dev/sda1)? Or the other way around?08:30

researcher1I want a text to be floating for each background of Ubuntu.Actually the name of some holy diety. can it be done?09:07
tensorpuddingresearcher1: what do you mean by floating text?09:08
Starminnresearcher1: I'd say you'd need to just add the text yourself in GIMP or whatever pleases you. It would be nice if you could make a transparent .gif which is what I think you want to overlay it all, but I don't see it happening09:08

tensorpuddingyou can edit the backgrounds to put in text09:08
DiverdudeHow is it exactly this groupon works? Is it a place where i can recommend cheap offers to my friends or what is it?09:09
tensorpuddingthere's also things which can paint on the background but that's a lot more painful09:09

Friponhi ! I would like to know if on Ubuntu Lucid, it's possible in KDM to have like in GDM the users who have an account in order to only click on the nickname and supply the password (because in KDM you have to type the entire nickname) ?09:09

icerootFripon: you can use gdm for kde if you want09:09

linux__I can not understdand09:10
Starminnresearcher1: You want it to be a single image which automatically applies to all of them, right?09:10
Starminnresearcher1: OR do you have just one background in particular in mind?09:11
GartralDiverdude: severly OT09:11
researcher1STarminn:YES09:11
researcher1Starminn:I want same image to be applied to all backgrounds09:11
Starminnresearcher1: Okay. While I'm sure there's probably some way to set the background control file (wherever that is) to load two images with one being dynamic and the other static, I wouldn't knnow where to even find it, hat to do with it once I have it, or if it will even work. Your best bet (and possibly only bet) is to just make a background with the text you want there as a separate file.09:12
Starminnresearcher1: I like what you're trying to do, and if you want to try my earlier suggestion go for it as I see that as the only possible "hope" but I really wouldn't know what to tell you.09:13
DiverdudeGartral, come on, its ok09:13
researcher1Starminn:But I will have to edit each background and save it?09:13
StarminnDiverdude: Why is it that every time I'm on here somebody's lecturing you for being off-topic?09:14
Starminnresearcher1: Yes. So, for example, open it up in GIMP and just add a text box there, save it as a different name (so you save the original) and set it as your background.09:14
researcher1Starminn:ok .workable idea.thanks09:14
DiverdudeStarminn, Maybe you are just completely out of touch with reality mate09:15
quietoneI've been trying what I can find in the forums. But still no wifi.09:15
Starminnresearcher1: Sure thing. By the way, not sure if you know this or not, but backgrounds don't have to be in /usr/share/backgrounds to work. They can be anywhere. So to prevent accidentally overwriting stuff I'd save it in /home/yourUSERNAME/somewhere09:16
ericyfedora_newb: I am using XChat 2.8.8.  I will tell you that you can configure any servers and multiple channels to automatically open.09:16

erryzvacet, stuill 0% waiting for heeaders10:35
iqpiinstall it in the pendrive, and not in other harddisk10:35
zvaceterry:  sorry I don't know10:36
Neosanoiqpi, OK. uhhmm, more questions came to my mind :)10:36
errymaybe badgerports is the prob10:36
Neosanoiqpi, is it possible to install more than 1 distrib on a pendrive?10:36
iqpiNeosano: of course yes10:37
erryYep10:37
erryThat was the prob10:37
Neosanoiqpi, and is it possible to resize partitions on the pendrive like I usually do on my hdd?10:37

boota2anyone had experience with it?10:39
Ben64usb flash drives are really slow, i don't recommend them for an OS10:39
iqpiNeosano: because of journaling10:39
mirshafieok i take it no one here is familiar with the ubuntu boot sequence. bye10:39

Neosanoiqpi, what should I use then?10:39
azizLIGHTShow do i become the new user 'dropbox'10:40
Ben64ext2, still gonna be slow though10:40
iqpiNeosano: i think ext2 is the best, or parse a option to ext4 to disable journaling, and i dont know how to do that xD10:40
NeosanoBen64, not for everyday use, of course! but for trying linux out and doing recovery things!10:40
SonneazizLIGHTS, su dropbox10:40
Sysi!webmin | boota210:40
ubottuboota2: webmin is no longer supported in Debian and Ubuntu. It is not compatible with the way that Ubuntu packages handle configuration files, and is likely to cause unexpected issues with your system.10:40
boota2I have old ubuntu.10:41
boota28.410:41
SonneNeosano, just out of curiosity, why do you want a filesystem without journaling?10:41
neurochromeIs anyone else getting weird screen artefacts in Ubuntu.  If I have an app open in the foreground I always see either youtube videos or adverts for amazon come through from the background, even when a browser is minimised or closed altogether10:41
neurochromethe only way to get rid of it is to restart10:41
neurochromethis is a new problem, started at 10.1010:41
neurochromeany ideas?10:41
Sonneneurochrome, few other people are reporting the same issue - it's most probably due to the video drivers10:41
SysiSonne: it's better when using usb drive, less writing to it10:42
SonneSysi, aha10:42
mushroomsHi all, I have used ubuntu in the past (like version 6 or something) but gave up, and decided that I would give it another go today with version 10.10:42
neurochromeSonne, even switching between metacity/compiz/ emerald/gtk-win-dec doesn;t help10:42
neurochromestrange10:42
ylmfosdd10:42
Sonneneurochrome, those are window managers, not video drivers :P10:42
neurochromeSonne, no fix?10:42
neurochromeSonne,  yeah I know10:42
Ben64neurochrome: have you tried disabling hardware accel for flash10:42
Sysiit's issue with flash10:42
ylmfosyundao10:43
mushroomsBut I need help setting up my wireless card, more specifically... It doesn't seem to turn 'on' when I boot up10:43
neurochromeNo, I haven't10:43
Sonneneurochrome, the proprietary flash plugin uses some kind of weird acceleration that causes problems on certain drivers, you might want to try switching to some alternatives10:43
ylmfoswhat is this?10:43
Sonneneurochrome, for example, you  might consider trying the proprietary drivers10:43
Neosanoiqpi, oh, and really, what's wrong with journaling?10:43
neurochromeThere is a way to disable hw accel though, I'll look into it10:43
neurochromeSonne, prop drivers for what?10:43
neurochromeGFX?10:43
neurochromealready do10:43
Sonneneurochrome, for your video card10:43
DJonesylmfos: This a a support channel for the ubuntu operating system10:43
Sonneah, nice10:43
oliehi10:43
SysiNeosano: more writing to disc10:43
ylmfoseeee10:44
iqpiNeosano: journaling makes many write cycles to the disks to dont loose data in a crash10:44
GeneralKJust in case there is anyone different around now, I am having an issue where I'm unable to mount a NTFS partition on a drive that has a gpt partition table... it's also connected through a nvidia raid array. Any help would be appreciated10:44
neurochromeSonne,  not that I like prop stuff, but I like my gfx with a kick up the ass10:44
Ben64neurochrome: try disabling hardware accel for flash first :D right click flash vid -> settings -> uncheck box for accel10:44
ylmfosi m first use it10:44
iqpiNeosano: so it will destroy your pendrive10:44
Sonneneurochrome, i know what you mean, i run proprietary drivers as well - but your issue appears often when using the free ones10:44
iqpiNeosano: because pendrives are designed to support a limit of IO cycles10:44
neurochromeBen64, cheers 2sec, I thought there was a cfg file somewhere to switch it on/off10:44
ylmfoswhere are u?10:45
SysiBen64: i'd tried that but my settings aren't working either..10:45
mushroomswhen I type in, lshw -C network, and it shows up with an entry "*-network UNCLAIMED" what does this mean?10:45
FriponHi ! I modified keys in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc but changes are ignored, did I miss something?10:45
Neosanoiqpi, oh :O10:45
ericyHave you seen the channel list.  Do it. Filter it for channels with over 300 users.10:45
Ben64Sysi: huh? i didn't say anything for you to do?10:45
zvacetyimfos: do you have any question10:45
SonneGeneralK, i'm not familiar with your setup - you might want to try #ubuntu-server however10:46
SysiBen64: throws to adobe website10:46
Neosanoiqpi, hmm.. ok.. but then what's going to happen if I pull my usb out while the system is doing something?10:46
SysiFripon: you could try to ask from #kubuntu10:46
SysiNeosano: unclean mount, not good for journalized fs:es either10:47
gazzumatteo:/quit10:47
azizLIGHTShow do i give the new user dropbox, ability to read/write my home dir? /home/ubuntu10:47
iqpiNeosano: i dont know, but the same that if while you are working with the system, you disconnect the hard drive, your system will crash10:48
SonneazizLIGHTS, you could try adding the dropbox user to your group - but why are you using a dedicated user for dropbox?10:48
iqpiNeosano: I think it will become freeze10:48
iqpiand you will cannot do anything, just hardreboot10:48
FriponSysi thx10:48
mushroomsHow do I check if a particular driver in question is bound to a device, and talking to the kernel?10:48
azizLIGHTSSonne: because i tried with my own user and it does funny things when i try to share /home/ubuntu to other dropbox users10:49
Sysimushrooms: lspci -k10:49
SonneazizLIGHTS, using a different user won't change anything10:49
Sysifor a start10:49
Neosanoiqpi, I mean would it broke the filesystem so I'd have to format it?10:49
Sonnethat's the way fuse woks i guess10:49
mushroomsSysi: so if it's listed, then a driver should be installed?10:49
fedora_newbmushrooms, it will list the driver its using10:50
azizLIGHTSSonne: it tries to sync /home/ubuntu/.dropbox which has socket files and goes 100% cpu usage, if i exclude it , it deltes it and my db disappears, if i recreate it, and then try to share /home/ubuntu it makes a .dropbpx (Conflicted Copy) dir10:50
azizLIGHTSSonne: its funny businmess!10:50
azizLIGHTSSonne: im going to isolate the .dropbox dir into a new user, and not share that user's home. and keep my own home safe from that crap and able to be shared10:50

mushroomssougata: I have no idea >_< how do i tell? (i don't have the driver disc, nor do i have the original box)10:54

Ben64neurochrome: well thats grayed for me too... hold on10:55
Neosanoiqpi, simply different root directory?10:56
zvacetNeosano: you can not install two os on same partition10:56
neurochromeBen64, k10:56
iqpiNeosano: you need at least one partition for each / so, you cannot install 2 systems in one partition10:56

iqpiNeosano: there is a posibilite10:57
SonneazizLIGHTS, aye most probably10:57
Ben64neurochrome: :O10:57
neurochromeBen64, but it doesn't exist, does flash have hw accel on by default?10:57
iqpibut you will need to use first a different partition10:57

neurochromeBen64, nice one!10:58
Sysibest workaround ever10:58
Ben64worth a shot, i was having problems with accel on10:58
neurochromeBen64, the artefacts are still there, but I'll restart to see if it's fixed.... or is there another way to kill the programs running w/o restarting?10:59
sougatamushrooms: hang on a while10:59
mushroomssougata: so i was wondering what "unclaimed" means... and if there were any way of actually enabling the wifi card...10:59
mushroomssougata:  ya10:59
iqpiNeosano: you can first install both systems, in diferent partitions, then from one of the system, as root, you copy the whole root directoy of the other system into a directory of your system. Then when it is entired copied, you can chroot in the new folder, so it will be like using a diferent system into your system.10:59
Ben64neurochrome: logging out would work, but if it didn't fix it, then that probably won't with a restart either10:59
iqpiNeosano: and if it works, then destroy the partition10:59

geirhalampe2: I'm not on an Ubuntu machine atm, but you'd go to System -> Preferences -> Encryption keys and passwords (IIRC) to do that.12:37

bazhangDave105, well there are lots of fixes for it in the ubuntu forums, but they do involve some compiling and such.12:55
bazhangDave105, its simply not  a  well supported card at all12:56
Ploploploop[segfault],  Yeah...12:56
EClaessonA little newbie question. In windows you can use "start programname" to lauch the program but not in the current terminal. How do i do this in ubuntu? I.e i start emacs from terminal but i can continue using that same terminal window12:56
[segfault]Ploploploop: btw, which version of Ubuntu is on the USB?12:57

=== Cipher_ is now known as pankaj_sharm

ruanEClaesson: or use tabs12:57
Ploploploop[segfault], the latest 10.1012:58
[segfault]Ploploploop: yeah, hmm.  well I thought it might be related to an earlier bug in Lucid..:(12:58

Ploploploop[segfault], one possible problem could be that I have a wifi n card, or usb3 ports, as well as esata12:59
EClaessonruan: I know that i can type emacs. But then that terminal is used by emacs, so i can't continue using it. I want to be able to lauch emacs just as if i clicked its icon. (I'm to lazy to click..)12:59
ruanEClaesson: yeah, so open a new terminal tab12:59
[segfault]Ploploploop: well, I suppose, but the latest kernel should be supporting all of that, and at least not die like that if it doesn't for some reason.13:00
ruanEClaesson: file > open tab13:00
[eXception]hi, when I enter into my /etc/syslog.conf following lines:  *.*;auth,authpriv.none;local0.none      -/var/log/syslog , local0.* /var/log/php.log ... it still keeps logging into:  /var/log/syslog... why is that?13:00

[segfault]liminal: compare your shutdown scripts in /etc/rc0.d/ to what you have in rc6.d/ and see if there is something you can find there that is causing the issue.  Just going out on a limb, but it might help you get a handle on the shutdown process.13:32
[segfault]liminal: rc0.d is shutdown, rc6.d is reboot (i should have clarified that, sry)13:33

apporcHello,everyone .I found that the default permission mode of home derectory for a new user in ubuntu is 755. And anyone else can read it .How can i change this default behaviour?14:11
the_real_daveapporc: Easiest way is to run gksudo nautilus, browse to the directory /home, then right click, change the permissions14:11
overcluckerapporc: you can change the umask in /etc/profile14:11
mindwareoCean , bazhang ok,sorry, but i had to reply the way he deserved...14:11
bazhangmindware, that is never appropriate here14:11
[segfault]first_time: how about gedit? it has modes for a lot of languages as a simple ide14:12
apporcI still found that in other distribution such as redhat suse ,the default permission of a new user's home directory is 700.14:12
apporcHow can that be?14:12
FriponI modified keys in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc but changes are ignored when I restart kdm, did I miss something?14:12
the_real_daveapporc: Right click on the folder, click properties, go to the permissions tab and change it to what you'd like14:12
mindwarefirst_time ,listen to [segfault] and i'm not kidding14:12
mtlifeerUSUL: Well, if you are out of ideas im gonna post on a forum for some help. Thanks for your time anyway:)14:12
[segfault]first_time: just open gedit, then go to View/Highlight Mode/Sources/Pascal14:12
overcluckerapporc: or if you don't want it to be global, you can add a .profile to /etc/skel with the umask  you want for new users14:12
apporcIf it is because of the umask of /etc/profile.how to change it .14:13
the_real_daveapporc: I'm not sure why it's that by default >.>14:13
erUSULmtlife: no problem14:13
apporcI know how to change it manually.but what i care is its default behaviour.14:13
mindwareapporc or get a terminal and write sudo chmod 700 /home14:13

the_real_daveapporc:Then I'm not sure tbh14:14
