ubottumaguey_: 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 !automate00:09

Aurigamickster04, If I am in a VM in cube 4, I am in a console, & I type reboot, then I move from cube 4 to cube 2, to change some music. The vm in cube 4 will follow me to cube 2 when the vm reboots.01:42

mickster04Auriga: oh, well that's because vm has an issue when it reboots, in gives itself focus on whatever desktop, there may be a setting for that, like "force focus on reboot" in VM01:43

Aurigamickster04, I was using the VM as an example it's the same with anything which is opening. In general things take longer to open than my cube switching. Just A VM is the longest.01:44
overcluckersl33k_: to run the install option, you will have to had already run build, and also prefix it with sudo: sudo python setup.py install01:44
randomuserAuriga, is your cursor 'trapped' by the VM? is it only with VMs?01:44
sl33k_overclucker: install na now? why it needs to be built?01:44
eamonuabn93: are you following a guide? Where are you stuck?01:44
mickster04Auriga: oh, well when you open a program it is going to appear on whatever desktop yoou have open, that's always been the case, just wait until it is open then switch desktops01:44
Aurigarandomuser, No it's not trapped.01:45
suicidoltok, that's a step in the right direction, I made a launcher for chatzilla, now I just want it to show up in my applications pop-up thing so that i can pin it to my sidebar, how do I do that?01:45
mickster04Auriga: it isn't which desktop you were on when you clicked it, more the  one you are on when it opens01:45
overcluckersl33k_: not sure, but i know it's common with python setup.py scripts01:45

suicidoltmickster04: the link built the program out, I built a launcher to run it01:46
Aurigamickster04, Yeah I know that for other programs, in that I do just wait, but with a VM there is more than one part to the boot process, it will move when it first opens, then when it gets to the boot screen, then once again when it is logged in. At least lol.01:46

DasEisuicidolt: left click, add to panel..01:53
DasEierr, right01:53

tomasm-i installed gthumb and now opening up all my folders from Places shows up in gthumb - can i get that to change back to nautilus somehow? its annoying01:55
surialThe entries for . and .. have all whitespace where the entry for device 002 has "189, "01:55
rwwsurial: odd. If it weren't, I'd say 189 is the group ID, which ls shows if it can't resolve the GID to a group name. dunno what the comma's there fore, though.01:55
uabn93="" is on line 33 eamon. The exact same text is on line 34 as well.01:55

DasEivicsar: you can do on 10.04 probably, but I don't want to break your --working system, else ask in #ubuntu+101:59

suicidoltso basically, I install linux and ask for help from the community and get told, sux to be you?02:02
surialThought as much. So how can I tell udev to make this as scanner. Or.. is there something else wrong? scanimage requires me to run as root, even though I'm in the scanner group (and so is saned). strangely enough sane-find-scanner does work, though it returns very slightly different information if run as root.02:02

ubuntun00beamon: there's a circle with a spinning thing inside, but no progress bar03:11
uabn93Yes, but the guide said "GRUB_GFXMODE" only applied to grub and not the operating system boot resolution. I tried 1280x1024x16 but nothing happened.03:11

brophati believe that when i install ubuntu and select to encrypt home directory it will prompt me for like a key word that it uses to encrypt, my question is if you have any advice on how to choose that word03:15
DasEibrophat: yes and no..03:16
brophatDasEi i heard it has to be big03:16
DasEibrophat: it uses your general password, the user password, so no additional, and you can generate a password03:16
Arisaka_Shrike"subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2" is what I get when I try to install or remove using the Ubuntu Software center or the Synaptic Package Manager, and something about python-profiler. Any ideas? :S03:17
_antantcan anyone tell me how I would go about updating some drivers (for ATI) through putty?03:17
DasEibrophat: depending on needs, tools like makepasswd are fine, but best is a pass you can have in head03:17
brophatDasEi ic so i have the option of just using my user password or generating a new password for the encryption?03:17
DasEibrophat: the former03:18
mickster04Arisaka_Shrike: in terminal <<sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade>>03:18
mickster04_antant: see the above command, it may help :p03:18
DasEibrohat: else you want whole disk encryption via luks03:18

speedrunnerG55my username isnd what it shows when i login04:23
speedrunnerG55how can i fix that04:23
edbianb1lly, lsmod lists them all.  lsmod | grep fglrx will show the rows that have fglrx in them.04:23
speedrunnerG55isnt04:23
DasEiiTails|Installin: ls = lower LS04:24
b1llywhat does grep stnad for04:24
edbianb1lly, After you remove the package (sudo apt-get purge fglrx) restart the machine04:24
iTails|InstallinDasEi: "Is: command not found"04:24
edbianb1lly, It doesn't stand for anything.  It's a great name on it's on I guess.  It filters the output of lsmod04:24
MuddflapsHey gang, here's my situation, maybe someone can help. I have the Creative XFI Xtreme (which uses the Audigy chipset and has issues with ALSA) so I went full on OSS4. Sound is currently coming through pcm1, which is correct. Thing is, sound will sometimes work, sometimes not. BUT, I found out that if I go to say, shoutcast.com for example, and get a stream playing and mute it, I have no problems. I guess what I'm saying is t04:25
Muddflapshat for it to work properly 100%, PCM1 will need to stay "open", since it seems like it's closing and opening and that's causing the sound to sometimes work and sometimes not.04:25
galamaredbian, there was only 2 linesin the file..... www.pastebin.com/ziEAeeVz........... i didnt know if the caps mattered04:25
edbianb1lly, You can grep anything though.  Like a file,  grep banana somefile.txt    will show all the lines of somefile.txt that contain 'banana'04:25
b1llyand what about apt-get04:25
DasEiiTails|Installin: ls in terminal not found ?04:25
b1llycan i grep *.txt04:26
iTails|InstallinDasEi: yeah.04:26

edbianb1lly, Is there a difference?04:27
ubuntun00bmrdeb: So I can have ubuntu on an external hard drive04:27
iTails|InstallinDasEi: no, unfortunately my ethernet controller went out on this motherboard. This PC is old. Pentium 4 2.8GHz, 512MB DDR 400MHz, ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro AGP (256MB Overclocked)04:28
DasEiiTails|Installin: if so (or just the box you're typing on here): sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade04:28
DasEiso no04:28
iTails|InstallinDasEi: nope.04:28
DasEiiTails|Installin: so that might not work, because if it's not just a module, but a compile, we need additional stuff, no old nic lying around ?04:29

voss749Most people havent heard of Tp-link but they are a good chinese brand04:37

iTails|InstallinDasEi: theres a runwpa file in here too04:42
voss749itails, tp-link is cheaper and works correctly04:42
DasEiiTails|Installin: looks fine to me, though I don't that model, but without inet I can gather info very hard only04:43
iTails|InstallinDasEi: would there be a way to somehow grab updates via Windows XP? I have XP on the other HDD.04:43
DasEiiTails|Installin: you get mad by typing all that in, doing something in the dark can bork system and not unlikely a update would/might fix things already, an err ls is a basic comand04:44

iTails|InstallinDasEi: well, part of the reason i had bought the wireless adapter is because ethernet will not work at all. Even in Windows. I guess it's just my motherboard. Can't blame it, it's been around since 2003, lol.04:47

StepNjumpLoshki, like I said before, when I perform a rm -f, the only thing that happens is that I go back to the prompt. Nothing else is echoed back. And when I do ls, I still see my two files sitting in /home/system/links (a dir I just created). I even tried sudo rm -f to no avail.06:20
StepNjumpLoshki thank you for the manual. I downloaded it. Didn't know about that06:21

Jordan_Ulastent: If it's a desktop machine then it's most likely FakeRAID, i.e. the CPU and software still do all the work.06:29
StepNjumpJordan_U I was just trying to delete all files (2 files) in that directory (eq of del. or del *.* in DOS)06:29
Jordan_UStepNjump: And what is the exact command you are running?06:29
lastentJordan_U, well so maybe it is fake, I am not sure06:30
LoshkiStepNjump: different linuxes (and sometimes different versions of the same linux) have slightly different options. Sorry...06:30
StepNjumpJordan_U, Loshki just made me realize it was wrong: rm -f.. There was a website that it was the way to do it... I was wrong. I should have doublechecked in the man pages first to ensure the validity of this website06:31
lastentJordan_U, I configure the array in the a program like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ch_RDNSX5V8&feature=related06:31
Jordan_Ulastent: It should work with either the Desktop or Alternate CDs, but unless you need to dual boot with Windows on the same array I would go with normal linux software RAID.06:31
wagehow do i find out what my wireless device module name is?06:31
StepNjumpLoshki oh really! mmm didn't know that. But we are all in ubuntu. I'm on the netbook remix 10.1006:31

taranhow can I deveolp ubuntu OS my native  language?06:33
LoshkiStepNjump: yes, but the web page you looked at probably isn't ubuntu-specific...06:34
bruceehi all. is there a special channel for Natty queries?06:34
Jordan_Ulastent: Then I would disable the FakeRAID and install using linux software RAID (which does require the alternate CD).06:34
StepNjumpyep probably... They should keep all those switches standard across the distros. I didn't know that. Live in learn!06:34
Jordan_Ulastent: FakeRAID is supported, but it has no real advantage over linux software RAID.06:35
lastentJordan_U, my raid array will appear as one disk in window$? if I use the linux software RAID06:36

mathijsnow after some time, I found that some UIDs/GIDs were wrong. it seems the mysql dir was owned by a UID that didn't exist. researching this, I found that the UID mapped to mysql on ubuntu! wasn't tar supposed to just use UID/GID and not try to map it in any way?07:24

streblois it a bad idea to change the home directory for the www-data user?07:28
jinkstreblo: What's it now?  What do you want to change it to?07:28
streblojink: its /var/www/, i want to change it to something that isn't being served by apache07:28
lytestreblo: i've changed it without issue... it being a "bad idea" would depend on how comfortable you are with apache config :)07:29
jinkstreblo: Why would you want to do that? :)  You can, of course.07:29
streblojink: i'm using a library in an application i've built that looks for a config file in the user's home directory07:29
lyteeww :)07:30
lytemy reason was a security review deemed it bad practice to have private content contained under apache's home dir (which seemed like BS)... I changed it just to make them happy07:30
strebloi'm trying to figure out how to bypass the config within the library07:31
strebloor just tell it to look in another directory besides the user's home07:31
lyteor just symlink the config to /var/www and document it thoroughly on your wiki?07:31
streblobut i have deadlines, and so in the meantime im thinking about just changing the home directory for the user07:31
streblolyte: the problem is the permissions. the file it's looking for contains config info, like a secret key07:32
strebloi dont want that to be in /var/www07:32

Fuchsandruha: no problem. But I recommend that you get familiar with the commands: `man` (for manual page), `info`  (for info page) and apropos,08:42
ruanNCS_One: drag the dots near the network connections icon08:42
staukiHi08:42
Fuchsandruha: they help you offline, e.g. if you have no internet access to ask us or other online documentation08:43

Agent008such as remote connect09:07
whizkenAgent008, hacking is playing around and toying with software09:07
ruan!hacking09:07
ubottuA hacker is a person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular, as defined by Request for Comments (RFC) 1392 - i.e. a good programmer  -- crackers on the other hand break systems, see also !piracy09:07
xarinatanlol, i always start doubting a person's intelligence when he/she asks for 'hacking software'09:07
Agent008yeah, soft ware and internet09:07
xarinatan>.>09:08
Agent008I learn c++ and php .09:08
ArmChairWarrior_Good start09:08
pikkieArmChairWarrior: I have other pcś available but maybe i can connect a usb drive when the server is running and send the files there09:08
Agent008It's hard for me to program a hack program09:08
nathicAgent008 don't think about hacking at that  early stage :D just go on and learn  c++09:08
ArmChairWarrior_If that works for you, pikkie. If you set up an FTP or a Windows share, you should be able to access it via live CD09:09
Agent008thanks ...   I will...09:09
pikkieThanks i will try that first.09:09
whizkenxarinatan, thats everyones perception when they enter the game with their drive powered by movies they saw on tv... when finally they reach the truth of what it is.. then they decide if they're staying09:09
ArmChairWarrior_Mount your HDs (it's all real easy in the gui) and simply connect and drag and drop your files09:09
xarinatanHey but, i'm still kinda stuck with my problem, i'm trying to chown files on a cifs mounted windows share, but the user doesn't change, anyone know what i'm doing wrong?09:09
Agent008I think linux just for hack and the software developers..09:09
ruani use linux as i used windows09:10
ruana bit more advanced though09:10
kaolbrecAgent008: Also maybe look up "backtrack" - it's a distro dedicated to penetration testing. But general knowledge is required to make use of the tools.09:10
whizkenAgent008, not true. for end users too :)09:10
ArmChairWarrior_xarinatan, chowning to a windows user or linux user? (not much exp with cifs) but if it's a windows user have you tried their UPN?09:10
xarinatanArmChairWarrior_: I have a windows file server and a ubuntu HTTP/SVN server (or so it will be once i finished it), i mounted a share from the file server in ubuntu using cifs, but all files that i create are owned by root, no matter what i do or how i chown it.09:12
dns53xarinatan you can specify the uid and gid for the cifs share when you mount it09:13
xarinatanWhich is quite annoying since that disables apache from properly accessing the files09:13
xarinatanYea but, i want to use multiple usernames, or is that not possible?09:13
Agent008try this: chmod [num] [filename]09:13
Frazerwhizken: it was a config in KDE that I had to check "View the content of folder", by default it does not !09:14
ArmChairWarrior_Give me a sec I'll see if I can recreate that09:14
xarinatani tried chmodding it to 777 but apache still tries to eat my face off when i want to access my files.09:14
xarinatanPlus it's not a very good security practice to chmod them to 777 >.>09:14
Agent008I met the same question09:14
Agent008---can not access file form windows share09:15
Agent008But I figured it out by config windows settings09:16
dns53xarinatan so what is your goal? have http/svn and also allow smb access on windows?09:16
xarinatanI have multiple servers setup at home, and i have a windows file server to host all the files using samba, and one hypervisor that hosts all the virtual machines that i have, and i'd like to put the files that i'm gonna create with SVN on the file server.09:17
whizkenFrazer, i don't understand09:17
whizkenoh nvm enable it in a config file09:18
Agent008Ubuntu can use IE ? Cause in Chinese without IE, means you can do little.09:18
whizkenAgent008, lmao09:18
whizkenyou're funny dude09:18
Agent008what's lmao?09:18
xarinatanAgent008: You can try wine, but there's plenty chinese support in other browsers.09:18
whizkenmeans i'm laughing09:18
whizkenAgent008, you can use chrome which is a fully translatable browser09:19
fayceHello guys, I'm writing a little gnome panel applet that has to stop/start/restart a service. the problem is that my service requires the user to "sudo" ... so how, just like the package manager, ask the user to type his password in a popup window then execute that command (assuming he is in the sudoers and that in the console the command would have worked fine if he sudoed it)  ? - I'm sure there must some gnome api function for that09:19
Agent008firefox is not suppoted by BankServic09:19

DJones!ies4linux | Agent008 From memory this will only allow you to install old versions of IE,09:20
ubottuAgent008 From memory this will only allow you to install old versions of IE,: ies4linux is a script that quickly and effortlessly helps you install 3 versions of IE in Wine. Information can be found at http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/page/Main_Page including instructions specifically for Ubuntu. ies4linux is aimed at web designers and ie-only sites, so please, don’t use any of the IEs to navigate! Use Firefox!09:20

fayceFuchs: thank you so much ! I'll try that :)09:21
dns53xarinatan well what i have done is i have a directory on the file server that has my bzr repository and i use bzr+ssh to access it on all machines i have09:21
whizkenAgent008, yeah firefox is a bombass browser... i hated it... went to chrome... then went back to firefox and love it09:21
Agent008....Haha,  you are funny..  I never use chrome...09:22
StepNjumpOk good night everyone09:23
StepNjumpexit09:23
Agent008firefox is not widely use....  althougt it's safty is better than IE09:23
ArmChairWarrior_xarinatan, do you get an 'operation not permitted'09:24
whizkenyeah chrome smells funny09:24
ikoniaplease don't be silly09:24
Agent008Are you Windows + linux?  Or just linux?09:24
xarinatanArmChairWarrior_: No i don't get anything at all, as if it just works, but if i do ls -la it still says it's owned by root09:24
ArmChairWarrior_I just got operation not permitted when I tried. I'm on Ubuntu Server 10.1009:25
Agent008what about sudo su?  and try again?09:25
xarinatanlol, i am root09:25
ikoniaAgent008: don't do that09:25
ikonia!sudo | Agent00809:25
ubottuAgent008: sudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo09:25
ArmChairWarrior_Anything in your logs? I'm going to try some more things09:25
Agent008Why? I don't have any important date in my notebook..09:25
ikoniaAgent008: because the link I've just sent you via ubottu explains how to use sudo09:26
kaolbrecAgent008: bad practice - it may matter in future09:26
ArmChairWarrior_Hm, can't chown the mount point either. Maybe that's by design though, never tried :P09:27
ikoniaArmChairWarrior_: what file system is on the mount point09:27
Agent008xari...  chown, and how much users you  created?   Maybe the "root" means another acount09:27
ikoniaAgent008: bi ut doesn't09:28
xarinatanit -could- be that it's because NTFS doesn't support that kind of permission data09:28
ikoniaxarinatan: there we go09:28
ArmChairWarrior_well look, you're not changing anything on the windows side09:28
ArmChairWarrior_Go to your windows files, and the permissions will be for your windows local user09:28
ArmChairWarrior_Both your share and NTFS permissions09:28
ArmChairWarrior_and you 'took' those permissions when you mounted the windows share in linux with your supplied username/password09:29
xarinatanI set it on the windows side to give the user in question all rights on the files, and on the linux side i wanted to finetune the permissions per linux user09:29
ArmChairWarrior_So it's not Windows, I'm thinking, it's Linux (doublechecks his files to be sure)09:29
ArmChairWarrior_ikonia: ntfs09:30
ikoniaArmChairWarrior_: that's the problem then09:30
Fuchsif you are using the ntfs, and not the ntfs-3g driver, ntfs will be mounted read only09:30
Fuchsyou can use the `mount` command without arguments to see how the partition was mounted09:30
xarinatanIt's mounted read-write, and it's mounted over the network using cifs.09:30
ArmChairWarrior_Right, and you supplied a username/password when you mounted, correct?09:31
xarinatanI can create files etc fine, but it always stays owned by root, and i want certain files owned by www-data09:31
xarinatanYes09:31
thauriswulfaQUESTION:hey guys is it possible to install ubuntu on macbook?09:31
ikoniaxarinatan: the windows permission model won't work on windows file systems when mounted under unix09:31

ArmChairWarrior_WTF, no security tab? Gdit09:32
ArmChairWarrior_hang on09:32
ikoniaArmChairWarrior_: control the language please09:32
xarinatanikonia: Aren't the file permissions set in the file headers rather than the filesystem data on lower levels?09:32
ikoniaxarinatan: but they can't be manuplated09:32
kaolbrecAgent008: permissions are specified in a different way, which is not recognized09:33
acepshi, is it possible to change the MAC address on an unbridged LAN router?09:33
xarinatanikonia: Darnit, meh i had to phase out the windows file server sooner or later anyway, is there a network file system protocol that is as convenient as samba that works on linux?09:33
kaolbrecaceps: maybe with dd-wrt. Not really sure.09:33

ArmChairWarrior_xarinatan, Look at the file permissions of your files on your windows box. I want you to see that the owner isn't 'root'09:35

ProphetPXshentino yes: finch09:35
megabrakerhello, where cookies are saved in ubuntu ? (firefox)09:36
ArmChairWarrior_The permissions are as they relate to Linux. It's not NTFS that is at fault.09:36

s3r3n1t7tinuxin, it would be a test ofcourse, to see if parallel is the problem indeed. Also, i assume it has it's own program that you're calling multiple times from a script? Then perhaps monitor the exit codes?13:07

Acshello13:29
Acsanyone know of a good ocr app for ubuntu?13:29
sipiorlaserbled: in fact, it's generally considered good practise to build the kernel in your home directory.13:29
tgywaHello13:29
tgywawhere is my swap file ... I don't have a partion devoted to it13:30
sipiorlaserbled: you should only require superuser privileges for the actual installation of the kernel.13:30
ajinif u have enough physical memory, the kernel won't use swap at all13:31
telaserbled: I agree, because if you do it at the office, you'll be interrupted by troublesome work related issues.13:31
laserbledsipior, but...the kernel 2.6.68 goes to over 2 gb while building and it stops since its run out of space....my home doesnt have much space left....so it will work if i built it outside rite..or is there any way that I could reduce the built size ?13:31

ubottuajin: A large amount of the first questions asked in this channel start with "Does anyone/anybody..."  Why not ask your next question (the real one) and find out? See also !details, !gq, and !poll.13:41
Travis-42te: how do I find the ID to refer to it with?13:41
ni1sTravis-42, does the drive have a partition table(i.e /dev/sdf has /dev/sdf1 etc.)?13:41
sipiorGulfstream: it's generally not necessary with modern filesystems, unless the volume is very full.13:41
aeiofuuuuuu"Leave message" in lock screen is not working. What can be the cause?13:41
sipiorGulfstream: you're sure you have a problem with fragmentation?13:41
teTravis-42:  But it depends on  what you intend to do with the drive. If it is not going to stay plugged in all the time, that may not be the best alternative.13:42
Travis-42nils, no it does not have a partition table. it's effectively blank. But I have a different drive that also has no partition table, but shows up in by-id13:42
Gulfstreamsipior: I think so, the system is slow.13:42
gonzo38how do I send a message to another user when I am connected to freenode and using empathy ?13:42
sipiorGulfstream: that's not very convincing evidence :-)13:42
ni1sTravis-42, ah! thats why youre not seeing it in /dev/disk/by*13:42
Fuchsgonzo38: you could use /msg or /query, but both is considered rude in IRC.13:42
Fuchsgonzo38: IRC is not meant for "instant messages"13:42
ajinfine, sorry ,i'll figure it out myself.13:42
teTravis-42: Well, you first need to partition and format13:43
Gulfstreamsipior: is there any way to make the system go faster?13:43
aeiofuuuuuu!irc | gonzo3813:43
ubottugonzo38: A list of official Ubuntu IRC channels, as well as IRC clients for Ubuntu, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/InternetRelayChat - For a general list of !freenode channels, see http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#channellist - See also !Guidelines13:43
Travis-42te: that would erase the encrypted data on the drive13:43
Travis-42:-)13:43
sipiorGulfstream: i would check memory first, with "free". is your cpu pegged as well?13:43
gonzo38fuchs: sure. let's say, it's a friend of mine, and I only want to ping him13:43
teTravis-42: Well, if there is data on the drive, It has already been partitioned and formatted.13:43
Fuchsgonzo38: connect to freenode and use /msg or /query.13:43
aeiofuuuuuuok I disabled notify OSD thats why "leave message" doesnt work in lock screen13:44
teTravis-42: ... but you just said it was blank...?13:44
Fuchsgonzo38: but I really recommend doing this via services meant for that, e.g. jabber, icq, msn or similar.13:44
Travis-42te: no, the whole drive is encrypted. no visible partition unless I mount it in truecrypt. so it's effectively blank to linux13:44
ankersanyone know why my audio doesnt work on my laptop? im on ubuntu netbook using fluxbox i go into alsa mixa all turned up all the way, go into pulse audio play a song and it shows noise is going threw but not coming out the speakers?13:44
Gulfstreamsipior: how do I check that?13:44
gonzo38fuchs: That's my concern, /msg returns "unknown command"13:44
Fuchsgonzo38: it should not. Try /query or even /notice13:44
Travis-42nils -- is there any way to refer to it with some sort of static identifier without a partition table? strangely I do have another similar drive that shows up in by-id13:44
gonzo38fuchs: /query, same fate13:45
Fuchsgonzo38: they take the nickname and the message as arguments,  e.g. /msg nickname message,  /notice nickname message   or /query nickname13:45
teTravis-42: You said it was blank and had no partition table.... oh well, never mind.13:45
Fuchsgonzo38: then get a real IRC client instead. The link from ubottu lists a few.13:45
brandoneyactually direct messages is exactly what irc is meant for, that is why the DCC protocol.13:45
sipiorGulfstream: there's a system monitor utility shipped with the gnome desktop. figure out which process(es) are consuming memory/cpu cycles.13:45
jOZehola13:45
Travis-42te: i said effectively blank and it has no partition table that can be recognized by fstab13:45
gonzo38fuchs: hence my question .. how to do that (or can I do that) with empathy13:46
Gulfstreamsipior: I found the System Monitor, now what do I need to find?13:46
sipiorGulfstream: there's a cpu and memory usage indicator.13:46
ankerscan someone help me get sound on my laptop :(13:46
sipiorGulfstream: also, *is* your disk nearly full?13:46
ni1sTravis-42, well,  not really sure i understand what you're doing here13:46
brandoneyI dont know.  You could ask in a different channel.13:47
Gulfstreamsipior: not really... I have a lot of space left, so it might be my slow CPU.13:47
Travis-42nils -- I have an encrypted drive that I need a script to be able to refer to, but I'm having trouble finding a way to refer to one of two drives because /dev/sdx changes at every boot. Until the drive is mounted by the encryption software, it looks like a blank drive with no partition table.13:48

lil_peteyeah, he needs to run binaries in a dir doesnt he?14:58
monotuxshesek: why would you want to run emacs in the console? :/14:58
johnernautwell, i use the mac primarily for design and multimedia.  I use windows for .net development, and I'm looking at ubuntu primarily for cross-platform development14:58
lil_peteDrPoO: you need to re-start the bash, not the whole system14:58

LordXe-gnuIn my /etc/network/interfaces file I've defined several static IP configs for my interfaces.  The one for eth1 contains this line "post-up ip addr add 10.10.20.5/24 dev eth1" but afterward if I "ip -4 addr list dev eth1" the address is not listed (only the first address, specified using "address" is). If I run the command manually, it works. Any ideas?15:06
shesekmonotux, it seems like it has about the same functionality, doesn't it?15:06
Dannydbut i can only login into the ethernetswitch using telnet15:06

Squarismcan you do updates with dpkg using the package file? the .deb file that is15:20
teLordXe-gnu: Looks liked the gateway address is wrong too. (Not within the subset)15:21
mtlifesemitones: search google for plop boot15:21
FuchsSquarism: you can use dpkg -i to install .deb files, but it is not recommended and it won't take care of any dependencies15:21

SquarismFuchs, if i have one version installed.. will it "overwrite" that?15:22
FuchsSquarism: if the version is newer: yes, it will. Chances are as well that it doesn't detect that it is an already existing application and only overwrites the files,15:22

teLordXe-gnu: "post-up ip addr add 10.10.20.5/24 dev eth1" confuses me. What is that supposed to do?15:24
johnernautAh ok15:24
LordXe-gnute, it just adds another IP to the interface. Basically what's happening here is that this box holds multiple IPs on the subnet, which are used for different (sets) of services.  I can determine which address is used for outbound connections using bind()15:25
LordXe-gnute, it's a rather eccentric and unusual setup I'm aware ;) It's a testbed for some networking software15:25
teLordXe-gnu: I've just never seen something like that  b415:26

mtlifesemitones: and for system rescue operations (win or linux) i use systemrescuecd. (only used ultimate boot cd 4 windows once, to replace a motherboard and fix a blue screen error)15:27
tepikkie: You mean that grub needs to be re-configured / installed15:27
pikkiete: i think so?15:27
LordXe-gnute, you will probably see it a lot more used with ipv6 (assuming ISPs actually give us decent blocks of IPs.. I think they're *supposed* to give out /48 and /64's). You could do something like have an address for your outbound connections and run services like sshd on a different IP so that just connecting to someone doesn't give out enough info about you to expose your services15:27
pikkiecan you help me with that please15:27

bahaahow to reinstall "apt-get autoremove" packages? (I've deleted half the system)15:46
icerootbahaa: packages which are deleted from "apt-get autoremove" are not important, its ok to delete them15:46
v_vbahaa: lol. what's up15:46
landingonwateranyone ever experienced hardware working on live USB or Wubi, but NOT on HD install ???15:47
icerootdf -h15:47
sipiorlandingonwater: check to see which kernel modules are loaded when booting from your usb stick. compare that with the normal install.15:47
BluesKajlandingonwater, what hardware?15:47
bahaaiceroot, v_v: it seems the system has missmarked important packages as inimportant and made me delete them15:47
icerootbahaa: no15:48
shaneois it safe to remove samba4 if i dont use it15:48
icerootbahaa: then you have used another command. apt-get autoremove is harmless15:48
BluesKajshaneo, yes15:48
shaneook thanks15:48
v_vbahaa: i understand, sometimes it's because of the deps of the packages. usually you needn't worry about them15:48
shaneoit must be corrupted or something its been giving me a hella time15:48
bahaaiceroot, I've reviewed the history it's autoremove15:49
An_Ony_MooseI want to set up a second session as the same user on my computer that I can then access via VNC. The problem is that I need it to run at a lower resolution and with some panel options changed so I can use it via a mobile device (VNC), while retaining my normal options in the main session and the configuration files. Is this possible?15:49
landingonwaterBluesKaj: ITs a broadcom wireless card. I thought I had a software problem, but... wubi install of Ubuntu 10.04 and Peppermint life USB could see the wireless internal card. HD install of Ubuntu 10.10 and Peppermint see nothing15:49
BluesKajshaneo, just regular samba should work15:49
bahaav_v, iceroot : I always use it but this time it's different15:49
icerootbahaa: trust me, autoremove is just removing packages, which came because of other packages, which are removed15:49
bahaav_v, iceroot : it has deleted totem, empathy, and many other programs :(15:49
shaneook15:49
icerootbahaa: then you deleted a package before which was pulling them15:50
landingonwaterBluesKaj: the Peppermint im running right now is a fresh install from USB. no updates. USB stick has wifi, HD install doesnt15:50
v_vbahaa: why not just get back whatever you what15:50
v_vte: how is it going with the pikkie ?15:50
juklil_pete: can hotplug without using hub?15:50
BluesKajlandingonwater, you mean network manager , right . Is there an icon in the panel ?15:50
dbmWhat distro should i take ubuntu or xubuntu or kubuntu for my pc CPU AMD Sempron 3000+ / Graphic NX6600 LE, 1GB of Ram15:51
bahaav_v: you've got a point of view but the problem I don't know the libs it deleted, dvds don't work any more :)15:51
shaneoare there any deps for samba415:51
v_vbahaa: apt-get install totem ?15:52
landingonwaterBluesKaj: It doesnt see the broadcom wireless card at all. so no software can help.15:52
BluesKajdbm, any ubuntu version should work fine with those specs15:52
bahaav_v, iceroot: should'nt be there a place where it logs what has been deleted?15:52
BluesKajlandingonwater, have you tried wicd ?15:52
icerootbahaa: /var/log/dpkg.log i guess15:52

sipiorshaneo: try "apt-cache rdepends samba4"15:54
v_vbahaa: ;->15:54
sipiorlandingonwater: establish which driver the usb live install is using to see the card.15:55
negevhi, i want to upgrade from 9.04 to 10.04 LTS but i can't find the docs, the docs i found are only for 8.04 or 9.1015:55
bahaav_v, iceroot : I've got a huge log would it be beneficial to post it?15:55
bahaanegev, you should upgrade to 9.10 first15:55
Flannelnegev: You can't upgrade directly from 9.04 to 10.04, you'll need to upgrade to 9.10 and then to 10.04.15:55
BluesKajlandingonwater, well a missing driver is definitely a software problem and how can you be so sure ?15:56
bahaanegev, it's sequential I believe15:56
Lars_GHi all.15:56
landingonwatersipior: the Live Peppermint recognizes the broadcomcard, and offers the driver in Additional driver. same result if I use ndiswrapper. so the driver is not the issue.15:56

jontakk15:57
bahaav_v, iceroot: I said half of the system15:57
bahaa:D15:57
sipiorlandingonwater: so that driver has been loaded on your ubuntu installation?15:57
icerootbahaa: maybe you removed "ubuntu-desktop"?15:57
b1llyhow come ubuntu wont detect my second monitor (it's hooked up thru a hdmi)15:57
icerootbahaa: dpkg -l ubuntu-desktop15:57
landingonwaterBluesKaj: im sure because both HD installs cant see the broadcom card at all. ealier wubi install of Ubuntu did, and Peppermint live USB does as well.15:57
shaneowhats the command to purge samba15:58
icerootshaneo: sudo apt-get remove --purge samba (if you mean complett deinstall)15:58
shaneoyes15:58
Picishaneo: It depends how you installed it.15:58
landingonwatersipior: the Peppermint live USB can see the broadcom hardware, so It automatically offers the broadcom driver under Additional Drivers.15:58

Is this possible?15:59
sipiorlandingonwater: that's not what i'm asking. does the ubuntu install, that does *not* see the card, load the same driver? if not, what happens when you attempt to load it?15:59
v_vbahaa: grep -n  'autoremove'  /var/log/apt/history.log15:59
v_vbahaa: and you can see when and where you autoremoved15:59
Lars_GQuestion, doesn't kernel 2.6.32-28-generic-pae in 10.04 LTS have XEN support (to work as a DomU)? I checked the config file and it should, but I'm having troubles starting it.15:59
sipiorlandingonwater: you can display loaded kernel modules with "lsmod"16:00
icerootLars_G: there should be a xen-kernel16:00
landingonwatersipior: the installed Ubuntu, both 10.10 and the Peppermint, does nothing when I install the driver. They simply cant see the hardware at all.16:00
sipiorlandingonwater: is. the. module. loaded?16:01
thauriswulfaQUESTION: I have two gprs modems connected to internet, i want to use one of them in firefox and other one in  opera , is it possible?16:01
