Gneatbruff13: to be fair, it would be better if you went and chilled out for awhile - do something else, then come back when you aren't as frustrated.  You'll only frustrate whoever tries to help you, thus frustrating yourself even further.01:12

teintelligentfool: lspci01:14
syrinx_nwntas: theres a #liferea channel, I think01:14

tbruff13bastidrazor, im sorry okay i have tried that nothing happens when i click on it it asks me to run i am sorry you dont want to hand hold but i dont know how to run that setup.py i click and nothing happens does this mean i need a command and if so where can i find that command i am not trying to be mean, but for someone who has tried for an hour with other programs and everything im just a little lost01:16

bastidrazortbruff13: actually.. you don't compile anything. there is an executable in the portablelinux directory created from the tar.gz: click the portablelinux file01:18
intelligentfooldumb question but a NIC should show up as "Network controller: bla bla bla" on lspci, right?01:18
teintelligentfool: Yes, it must be broke. Get a new one.01:18
tbruff13i do and it runs but when i try to create a disk i get an error01:18

ubottuGNOME is the default !desktop environment on Ubuntu. To install it from Kubuntu or Xubuntu, type « sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop » in a !terminal.01:56

danielmjs, is it easy as installing it to swicth02:00
ohzieGuest54372: similar to how we chroot 32 bit programs into systems with 32 bit libraries, you could chroot that program into a faux-system with an older glibc02:00

tolland_memorygap0: as you have presumably already set a size for the virtual disk during creation, I would use the whole space02:29
dualcoreis there a channel for postfix?02:30
bastidrazordualcore: #httpd02:30
tememorygap0: Depends on what you can afford to use for linux. If it is the only drive, you obviously don't want to wipe the whole thing, (unless you're ready to ditch MS Windows altogether).02:30
leppardsHi everyone.02:31
bastidrazordualcore: actually there is a #postfix channel02:31

leppardshad a question regarding a usb wifi device that I am trying to get to work on my installation 10.10 installation.02:32
memorygap0tolland: if i choose erase and use the entire disk.this option will not erase my os xp. yes i created 8gb for my vm02:32
dualcoreleppards: what is your question02:32
leppardsThe device is Ralink 3070 . It gets recognized and clicking on the network icon on the taskbar shows a list of wifi networks as well. but the password does not work02:33
leppardsas in.. i enter it and the password box keeps coming back. It does not show any error message ... are there some logs that I can look up..02:34

mikejfHow do I enable TTys on a customized 10.04 LiveCD?02:35
teNSpirit: Just install on the first partition of a drive the computer will boot.02:36
NSpirit<mikejf> : ctrl + alt + f102:36
tolland_memorygap0: what are you using for the disk for your new instance?02:36
mikejfNSpirit: All TTYs except 7 for X are disabled by default, and all they have is a flashing cursor in the top-left02:37
tolland_during the wizard it should have offered you to created a new .vdi file to contain your virtual hard disk, and you should have specified fixed or dynamic and given it a start size02:37
memorygap0choose dynamic02:38
tolland_and there should be a file called Whatever.vdi in your virtuals folder02:38
mikejf /etc/init/tty*.conf isn't much help, they all show that it should be starting fine02:38
tolland_so when you choose to use the whole disk in the ubuntu installer, that file gets filled with an ext4 file system02:38
tolland_not your native OS disk02:39
mikejfI've messed around with inittab before, but now with upstart I can't figure out how the LiveCD is disabling the extra TTYs02:39

gbear14275Jordan_U, is it possible to kill the zombie directly?  I tried to use sigchld to the parent but it wouldn't kill the zombie child04:03
Ben64Photocopy: whatever you have set up using keyring, i'd suggest having a blank password for it04:03
LinuxpwnsPhotocopy, it encrypts your saved passwords to provide a little extra layer of security04:03
SwedeMikegbear14275: you can't kill a zombie, that's why it's a zombie.04:03
celerymangetting connection timed out in firefox.. showing active internet with wireless and ethernet, i can ping google from terminal, \04:03
gbear14275SwedeMike, ah04:03
Jordan_Ugbear14275: A zombie process indicates a bug in the parent process. If the parent never reaps the child, and you don't kill that buggy parent, it will stay a zombie.04:03
PhotocopyLinuxpwns: why does it ask me four times though!04:04
gbear14275ah... ok04:04
Jordan_Ugbear14275: Please file a bug report with "ubuntu-bug 2523".04:04
ubottuError: Launchpad bug 2523 could not be found04:04
LinuxpwnsPhotocopy, to remove the keyring go to your Home Folder, click View > Show Hidden Files. Click on .gnome2 > keyrings  DELETE EVERYTHING INSIDE HERE. Restart your computer then when it prompts you to type in a password just hit OK to transmit in clear text and you won't be asked again.04:04
gbear14275Jordan_U, ok04:04
gbear14275Jordan_U, thanks04:04
Jordan_Ugbear14275: You're welcome.04:05

RamirezHello I am having trouble getting my laptop to suspend when the lid is closed. I've tried installing pm-utils and laptop-mode-tools but neither one helps. Please help me if you can.04:05
Linuxpwnsphotocopy, when are you prompted to input your password for keyring?04:05
[deXter]Ramirez: I doubt if anyone can help, this is a known problem with laptops. I guess you just have to wait until your laptop is eventually supported04:06
celerymanany ideas would be appreciated04:06
Ramirezthank you {deXter}04:07

PhotocopyLinuxpwns: My computer enters my user account on bootup. It loads my panels and docky and everything and a dialogue asks me to enter my password to unlock the keyring. I type it and hit enter. the box closes and returns and asks again. 4 times total04:08
Logan_!please | celeryman04:08
ubottuceleryman: Avoid following your questions with a trail of "Please, help me", "Can nobody help me?", "I really need this!", and so on. This just contributes to making the channel unreadable. If you are not answered, ask again later; but see also !repeat and !attitude04:08

joeyrAnybody familiar with plop Linux?04:10
[deXter]I've use plop but haven't used plop linux04:10
LinuxpwnsPhotocopy I see. It sounds like you might have multiple apps which have authentication credentials involved and thus you are putting in the keyring password to enable all 4 of them...?04:10
RealOptyLinuxpwns,  so any suggestions?04:11
xenelets all get naked04:11
RealOptyalready am haha04:11
LinuxpwnsRemove the keyrings as suggested, reboot then when it prompts you for the password again just hit OK to transmit in clear text04:11

RealOptybut nothing plays unless i use alsa with vlc player04:20
joeyrLinuxpwns: No problem, I've been seeing all these videos about how people use either a cd or usb to change their boot order, but none of them helped because none of them mentioned booting to an external drive from having the usb first in the boot order04:22
Saturn2888Ubuntu Server isn't installing properly from the USB. I have this problem every time I install via USB. Does anyone know why it doesn't detect it from the installer?

Molybdenumhey, im trying to boot 10.04 off of a livecd however it freezes just when it brings up the install window04:26
Molybdenumany ideas?04:26
=== skullgame is now known as abnrmalia
dan123hi all04:26
Ben64Molybdenum: you could try installing from the alternate cd04:27
lratecan you install ubuntu to a vdi/vhd and put it on a bootable usb ?04:27
joeyrLinuxpwns: I'll have to turn off my computer to check. or do I have to?04:27
Linuxpwnsi can try to look it up online real quick before you do.04:27
Molybdenumas in that ben64?04:27
joeyr[dexter]: Alright I'll download it04:28
Ben64Molybdenum: sort of. theres the normal cd, and one labeled "alternate" which is a text based installation04:28
[deXter]lrate: no need for a vdi you can just use the startup creator or use unetbootin or pendrivelinux.com04:28
lrate[deXter] the thing is if its a vdi/vhd though I can back it up easily and restore it when my drive fails04:29
Molybdenumso i click the hyperlink that says a location near you04:30
[deXter]lrate: Again, no need because you can create a persistent storage space which is just a single file casper.rw .. it's like an image file04:30
Ben64Molybdenum: download the "alternate" cd04:30
Molybdenumwhere is that link?04:31
Molybdenumalternate installer right?04:31
Molybdenumits a torrent, correct?04:32
Ben64there are torrents available04:32
joeyr[dexter]: alright, plop is extracted onto my usb drive04:32
LinuxpwnsI use Clonezilla to image my partitions04:32
Ben64or http if you prefer04:32
Molybdenumben64 the http one is in the "place near you" link correct?04:33
Ben64after a few clicks it can reach it04:33
Ben64but you'd still have to make sure to pick the right one04:33

Mr_MidnightHi, I am looking to install Ubuntu on a new partition that I'll create on my windows 7 laptop and I want to know if I can use the windows boot loader instead of Grub04:38
Jordan_Ulrate: I would recommend a standard install rather than a persistent live install.04:38
[deXter]Linuxpwns: yeah that's automatic, just type the name of the person at the starting.04:39
LinuxpwnsMr_Midnight: The Windows boot loader cannot see the Linux partition so it would be prudent that you install Linux on top of Windows and let Grub do the managing04:39
Linuxpwns[deXter]: Does this text appear in red?04:39
Jordan_UMr_Midnight: Not in any reasonable configuration. Why do you want to?04:39
Mr_Midnightbut I can't stand that grub won't keep windows as the main boot option any time it updates the kernel04:39
Ben64Mr_Midnight: it can keep windows as default04:40
Jordan_UMr_Midnight: Use the full title for the windows menu entry, quoted since it contains spaces, as the value for GRUB_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub.04:40
Jordan_UMr_Midnight: That way numbering doesn't matter.04:40
Mr_MidnightI haven't seen a way to do it without numbering..04:41
LinuxpwnsMr_Midnight: Very simple. Install a package called "StartUp-Manager" its a GUi tool allows you to select your default OS and then let grub do the dirty work. Simple!04:41
Mr_Midnightcan you give a more detailed example?04:41
LinuxpwnsMr_Midnight: Open the Synaptic Package Manager. Type in "startupmanager" in search. Install the package. Then locate the StartUp-Manager utility. Under "Default Operating Systems" change to Windows.04:43
Mr_MidnightLinuxpwns: If I do that I still have to watch for kernel updates... if I miss an update that I have it install in the background it will change the boot order on me and screw up on the next reboot...04:43
Mr_MidnightJordan_U: Can you give a more specific example of how to use the name instead of a number?04:43

Ben64missed the !04:45
icedteaBen64: I believe the ! makes it the inverse04:45
kontagiouswhats the -f option?04:46

Mr_Midnightok so next question... which flavor of Ubuntu do people recommend?  I have been using WUBI but have been having issues so I'm switching back to a dedicated partition04:51
Mr_Midnightusing WUBI to install Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit04:52
Ben64i use ubuntu04:52
icedtea10.10 regular04:52
icedteavanilla ubuntu04:52
LinuxpwnsWUBI has a few bugs to work out still I agree with your decision to make dedicated partition midnight04:52
icedtea how does WUBI work?04:52
Ben64i don't like wubi04:52
Photocopycall me weird, but I think it might be cool to have title bars that still have the close/min/max buttons, but without the text title. Any way I can try this out to see how it looks?04:52
Mr_Midnighticedtea: WUBI creates a virtual hard drive that is then mounted to run Ubuntu inside of instead of having a dedicated partition04:53
Linuxpwnsit allows you to install linux while inside a windows operating system, but its not perfect04:53
Mr_Midnighticedtea: It lets you go up to a max of 30GB and is good if you really want to keep using windows boot loader and just play some with Ubuntu without knowing how to repartition your hard drive04:53
icedteaMr_Midnight: ahhh, ty04:54
shcherbakPhotocopy: Try emerald, you can edit any aspect of theme.04:54
Photocopyshcherbak: I'm not really sure how to switch it.04:54
joeyrLinuxpwns: Alright so I downloaded plop onto my flashdrive(1G). I don't know what to do now. I want to boot my external HD(500G). Any ideas?04:55
LinuxpwnsMr_Midnight: I ran across this link. Might have useful information to resolve your problem with kernel updates. http://superuser.com/questions/102692/make-grub-keep-its-default-boot-under-kernel-updates04:55
shcherbakPhotocopy: install emerald and ccsm, then add emerald as window decorator and issue command compiz --replace04:55
leapy0yohow do you move all subdirectory files to the parent directory?04:56
Linuxpwnsjoeyr: Did you make PLOP  a bootable USB image04:56
Photocopyshcherbak: I have ccsm. do i just sudo apt-get install emerald?04:56
Mr_MidnightLinuxpwns: Thanks for the link I'll look it over04:56
shcherbakleapy0yo: cp -r maneoffolder/* .04:56
shcherbakPhotocopy: yes04:56
Photocopyshcherbak: isn't emerald more resource heavy? am i going to take a serious hit for removing a bit of text?04:57
joeyrlinuxpwns: no. How do you do that?04:57
LinuxpwnsPhotocopy: I'm using the Vista Aero Black emerald theme.  The one thing I like about Windows is Aero.04:57
PhotocopyLinuxpwns: That's kinda a neat little fact but... your point?04:57
leapy0yohow do you move _multiple_ all subdirectory files to the parent directory?04:57
shcherbakPhotocopy: a bit yes.04:58
Photocopyshcherbak: i don't understand how to switch it to emerald now that i've installed it04:58
unitheorycp -r */* . ?????04:58
unitheoryor would that be insane04:58
shcherbakleapy0yo: oh, files? use find in loop04:58
Linuxpwnsjoeyr:  do you already have plop installed or are you looking to install it?04:59
joeyrLinuxpwns: already installed on my 1G04:59
soreauPhotocopy: emerald --replace04:59
LinuxpwnsI see.04:59
soreauPhotocopy: It will likely be the default when you restart compiz04:59
Photocopysoreau: before I fire off that command, whats my way out if it messes up. metacity --replace?05:00
shcherbakPhotocopy: in ccsm go to window decoration set emerald, you need theme too, or try emerald --replace05:00
soreauPhotocopy: sure05:00
Photocopyshcherbak: still not sure what part of the window decoration section in ccsm you mean05:00
Photocopysoreau: are there any places i can find and change up emerald themes and stuff?05:01
shcherbakPhotocopy: one sec05:01
lrateJordan_U i've never used ubuntu yet so I wanted to try it out before going all the way, wubi wasn't working so I figured i'd try for something else, If i could do a full install to a vdi/vhd i'd be up for that but I guess the best suggestion so far has been his pendrivelinux thing05:01
soreauPhotocopy: emerald-theme-manager05:01
Photocopysoreau; where can i find emerald themes... gnome-look?05:02
Mr_Midnightlrate: you can also try using a virtual machine inside of windows if you aren't comfortable partitioning your hard drive05:02
soreauPhotocopy: There, compiz-themes.org and kde-look.org05:02
shcherbakPhotocopy: text Command, either put emerald --replace, or path to emerald05:02
soreauPhotocopy: I have a deb package of some generic themes if you want05:02
lrateMr_Midnight that wouldn't allow me to test graphic related things though :( i lose either way lol05:03
Photocopysoreau: if i cannot get the elementary theme window border pretty much exactly how it is with metacity i'm just going to switch back anyway. Let me search around and see if i can find it adapted05:03
LinuxpwnsPhotocopy:  Open Compiz Config Settings Manager. Click on Window Decorations. In command, erase default and then input "emerald". Click back.  Open a terminal and CD to your directory containing the .emerald file.  In terminal type emerald --replace EMERALD-NAME.emerald.  Your window border should turn red'ish now. Open emerald and click Import. Double click on your imported emerald theme. Log out and log back in.05:03
soreauPhotocopy: How is it different than metacity?05:03
Photocopysoreau: how is what different than metacity?05:04
soreau<Photocopy> soreau: if i cannot get the elementary theme window border pretty much exactly how it is with metacity <--05:04
joeyrLinuxpwns: Do I do something with the iso image?05:04
Mr_Midnightanyway thanks all for your help time to go grab a midnight snack and then start an ubuntu install on  my new 48GB partition05:04
Photocopysoreau: I don't think that danrabbit, creator of the theme i normally use, made an emerald version of it. checking to see if someone ported it05:05
PeterFAI installed apache2, php5, the module for php5 and apache2, restarted apache2 and it serves PHP unparsed.05:05

medflysoreau: the driver worked previously. I think ubuntu asked me to upgrade the kernel, and that somehow had trouble in the middle.05:21

LinuxpwnsSame OS? etc05:26
moonchildThe_Pharoah: linux has a remarkably clean low-level api05:26
duanedesignThe_Pharoah: apt-get source <package>   That will get the source for all the packages(programs) in the Ubuntu repos. You can also go to sites like Launchpad and Sourceforge05:27
ac7ss_Pharoah what language are you programming in? what are you writing?05:27

soreauThe_Pharoah: It's much more programmer-friendly, but you can configure any environment of your choice to be convenient05:27
The_Pharoahjava, python, c++, html05:27
moonchildI can't necessarily say the same for the user-facing interfaces of distros like ubuntu, but that's a flame-war that I don't want to get into05:28
KnioLinuxpwns: slightly different model of CPU, probably same for mb/ram, but all are comparable. tasks that don't involve fork() all complete in the same times, fork() is ~100 times slower on one05:28
Saturn2888how does Ubuntu take 4K sectors into account? As far as I know, Linux cannot05:28

ac7ss_The_Pharoah: what audience are you looking at? that makes all the difference.05:28

soreauThe_Pharoah: maybe you could use come channel like ##linux, ##programming or any of the languages of your choice.05:30
Jordan_USaturn2888: Linux can handle 4K sectors fine, though almost no BIOSs can and it's very rare. That error has nothing to do with 4K sectors.05:30

ac7ssThe_Pharoah: I have a small shell script that shows all the valid pings.05:37
Saturn2888Jordan_U: yeah, I've written to an old CD-RW I had lying around. I hate that it never works from USB no matter which I use. I can get into the installer and everything, just doesn't seem to notice sdd1 is mounted in /cdrom.05:37
moonchildKnio: actually, if profiling the system, I bet bash is *the least* of the problems05:37
The_Pharoahac7ss: how did you make the script though05:37
Saturn2888moonchild: but sector size is more like an allocation unit in Windows. So long as files are not written less than 4K, I should be fine05:37

moonchildyeah, what's you're issue?05:40
Saturn2888Time to align partitions then. And I'm assuming Ubuntu's installer doesn't allow you to do RAID1 when it detects 2 same drives05:40
joeyrLinuxpwns:Do I have to do something with the iso for plop?05:40
The_Pharoahah so they are just MAC addresses05:40

Linuxpwnsjoeyr: I would use the Universal USB installer from www.pendrivelinux.com, boot into Windows on your machine and "burn" the ISO image to your USB drive using that utility. Select "unsupported" if PLOP isnt available as a option. Before you do this, copy the ISo to your desktop in windows, then format your drive as FAT32. Then open Universal USB program and browse for your ISO and burn!05:42

tripelbbmoonchild, i can see hiddenfiles already. as I said I see .schat2 and many more.05:43
LinuxpwnsKnio: I'm not a programming expert but from what I gather, "fork" create a new addres space while "clone" share address space between parent and child05:43

ac7ssThe_Pharoah: I am in a M$ environment at work, but use Linux for nearly everything outside of work.05:44
Jordan_USaturn2888: Make sure that if you partition manually you create a BIOS boot partition (automatic partitioning creates one): http://grub.enbug.org/BIOS_Boot_Partition05:44
moonchildfork & clone are more or less the same call05:44
tripelbbmoonchild, I have cured my stupidity. (blush)05:44
moonchildthe difference is that fork's new address space is copy-on-write05:45
Saturn2888Jordan_U: gonna use Gparted in GUI mode to do that so I get 2MB out in front of the partition05:45

LinuxpwnsThe_Pharoh: wep definitely... WPA requires you to deauthenticate an already associated wireless client on the WPA network. In other words if there is no wireless traffic you can't get a handshake which is needed to launch cracking tool06:07
The_Pharoahsoreau: linuxpwns was talking about hacking wep06:07

LorgonJortleHey everyone.06:09
qu|xHey LorgonJortle06:10
Saturn2888quick question, is it normal to spend 4 min partitioning ext4 for 1TB?06:10
soreauhi LorgonJortle06:10
pbearhow do i not use the network manager to get on the internet?\06:10
soreaupbear: How do you connect?06:10
ac7sspbear: ifconfig06:10
ac7sspbear: iwconfig06:11
Linuxpwnspbear: terminal, aka "ifconfig"06:11
LorgonJortleI just installed Win7 on a 40GB partition, and I'm tryin' to bring Grub2 back to life. I reinstalled it as per the Ubuntu help doc for "Restoring Grub after Windows installation", but now when I boot I get not but a black screen. What gives?06:11
pbeari was trying to do something and uninstalled the network manager. what i was trying to do was disable it at startup06:11
mysteriousdarrenyes its normal, consider all the space and to install it all06:11
MrwootwootActionParsnip, I found the script but I dont know how to manipulate it to update more often06:12
AurigaQ: Do we all get the compiz -- replace issue, or is it just me?06:12
soreauAuriga: compiz -- replace issue?06:12
pbearLinuxpwns: how would i use, for example eth0?06:13
ActionParsnipMrwootwoot: it's in the cron file, those are the hours it will change at06:13
Aurigasoreau, Are you new to Linux?06:13
ActionParsnipAuriga: works fine here06:13
Linuxpwnspbear: ifconfig eth0 up  then  dhclient  to enable DHCP and that should get you online06:13
soreaupbear: dhclient eth006:13
soreaupbear: Assuming its connected to a device with dhcp setup06:14
Saturn2888Jordan_U: forgot to tag you: quick question, is it normal to spend 4 min partitioning ext4 for 1TB?06:14
soreauAuriga: What does you mean by compiz --replace issue?06:14
Linuxpwnssoreau: 9 out of 10 chances it is....06:14
joeyrI can't boot Linux on my external. Suggestions?06:14
Aurigasoreau, Judging by what you are writing I will assume not... the compiz - - replace, when you have to type replace to get back the window borders & buttons.06:14
soreauAuriga: Are you having some problem with compiz?06:14
Linuxpwnsjoeyr: Your motherboard does not support it most likely i'm afraid.06:14
joeyrLinuxpwns: I was thinking I could make it from a cd instead of a usb. Put plop on a cd06:15
Aurigasoreau, Nothing I can't fix. Though I think you missed my point...06:15
soreauAuriga: You are wasting time by asking questions06:16
AurigaActionParsnip, You never have to replace your GUI?06:16
Linuxpwnsjoeyr: Your original intentions is to use linux on your external drive though06:16
Aurigasoreau, You are wasting time by being a moron.06:16
LorgonJortleSo, after reinstalling GRUB2, I tried doing a 'sudo update-grub' but that gives me an error asking if dev is mounted... And I'm still getting just a black screen when I boot.06:16
LorgonJortleAny ideas?06:16
ActionParsnipAuriga: how do you mean by gui....?06:16
Linuxpwnsjoeyr: Have you considered disassembling the case of your external drive and extracting the SATA drive and then slaving it onto your desktop? Then just using it as a regular sata HDD.06:17
AurigaActionParsnip, Sorry not the gui, just the window buttons.06:17
MrwootwootActionParsnip, I'm looking through this file https://gist.github.com/835062 but i dont see a cron anywhere in there06:17
dombnexenhi i have my streaming radio and i wont to play from linux in this streaming radio how i can do this?06:17
ActionParsnipAuriga: oh, the window decorator?06:17
LinuxpwnsOr if its IDE, slaving it as a 2nd drive... etc06:18
AurigaActionParsnip, Yeah basically.06:18
joeyrLinuxpwns: I was wondering if I could copy the boot.ini file onto my flashdrive so it can say "hey, go to the external first" I don't want to do any disassembling.06:18
ActionParsnipMrwootwoot: thats because it will run as a continual process. The script in the page I gave is a script whih runs when cron tells it to06:18
AurigaActionParsnip, I think you have never had the issue, it's a little odd to explain what happens.06:19
ActionParsnipAuriga: there is emerald which you can apply themes to very easily06:19
arnold_testing irc, say hello to me please. :)06:19
ActionParsniphi arnold_06:19
AurigaActionParsnip, I'm not talking about themes.06:19

soreauhey arnold_06:19
python__arnold: whats up baby06:19
pbearLinuxpwns: i did sudo dhclient eth0, then dhcclient eth0. it's saying no dhcpoffers recieved06:19
LinuxpwnsKnio: Interesting.06:19
soreaupbear: What is your ethernet cable connected to?06:20
ActionParsnipAuriga: "changing the buttons" sounds a LOT like theming, wouldn't you say. Try giving details and we may be able to help06:20
soreau! who | pbear06:20
ubottupbear: As you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)06:20
dombnexenhi i have my streaming radio and i wont to play from linux in this streaming radio how i can do this?06:20
soreaudombnexen: What kind of streaming radio? Where is the stream coming from?06:20
ActionParsnipdombnexen: vlc and mplayer can connect to streams very easily06:20
joeyroh well, I'm out for the night. thank you Linuxpwns for trying to help06:20
AurigaActionParsnip, It's not changing the buttons, it's when the buttons dissapear, & you are not able to move the window. Nor close it, or minimize, you have to replace them with compiz - -replace. Not the same at all.06:21
dombnexeni dont know how06:21
Linuxpwnsjoeyr: No problem. Sorry about that.06:21
Linuxpwnspbear: It means that no dhcp server was found on your network06:21
ActionParsnipAuriga: you should have said THAT first, rather than "You never have to replace your GUI?"  which is absolutely nothing to do with your issue06:22
LorgonJortleEmpathy froze, sorry if I missed an answer. After installing GRUB2 again, I'm only getting a black screen on bootup. Is there something else I need to do?06:22
Linuxpwnspbear: Are you connected via wireless now?06:23
ActionParsnipAuriga: compiz isn't even a GUI, its a window manager06:23
AurigaActionParsnip, That is exactly what I  said at first. I wasn't talking about theming, I said the compiz - - replace issue...06:23
python__LorgonJortle on the black screen can you press e06:23
dombnexenhow i do it in vlc or mplayer?06:23
python__and go into the menu06:23
pbearsoreau: what do you mean? i'm not sure, i'm working with ubuntu inside a virtual machine06:23
LorgonJortlepython__: What will that get me?06:23
ActionParsnipAuriga: I suggest you use the startup items manager and add a new item to run:  compiz --replace     and it will be fine06:23
soreaupbear: Well you could have told everyone that from the start06:23
* soreau goes to bed06:24
python__that should let you get to the menu.lst file line06:24
LinuxpwnsOh geez06:24
mdkessIs there any way to set the resolution on the virtual terminal (ctrl+alt+fN)?06:24
ActionParsnipAuriga: fyi, you CAN move windows without window decorators, if you hold ALT you can drag an application window from any place in the app06:24
LorgonJortlepython__: Thanks. I'll give it a go.06:24
MrwootwootActionParsnip, ahhh ok i got it, but 1 more thing... how do i include the location of this picture as it updates? http://static.die.net/earth/mercator/800.jpg06:24
LorgonJortlepython__: I'm runnin' it. :D06:24
pbearLinuxpwns: no, i uninstalled the network manager and can't enable networking06:25
MrwootwootActionParsnip, because i don't want to manually have to save it to my computer everytime it updates06:25
ActionParsnipMrwootwoot: you will need to add a command to download it with wget06:25
python__in that case try pressing ctrl+alt+F206:25
python__does it bring you to a command prompt06:25
Linuxpwnsmdkess: xrandr -s 1024x768   or pick another resolution, does that work?06:25

ActionParsnipStarminn: did you put your script in /usr/bin   ? (give it a weird name)07:03
Aurigamemorygap0, Go take a look at installing Guest Additions.07:03
StarminnActionParsnip: IT does launch the program (an emulator), but it can't find the game to emulate unless ~/quake is my Working Directory. ;) As far as putting the shell script in /usr/bin, I shall try that now.07:04
ActionParsnipmemorygap0:  you can define folders which share to the guest in the vbox config07:04
i4ba1_the result is Model=SAMSUNG HD161G, FwRev=1AC01118, SerialNo=S14Dj58595907:04
i4ba1_and i just want get the number in serial no07:04
ActionParsnipStarminn: you should then be able to run it from any place. If the script is not in one of the folders in $PATH you will need to  type the absolute path to the script07:05
i4ba1_how can i do that?07:05
thauriswulfaQUESTION: I am unable to use other than default gsm n/w operator "idea" to connect to internet on huawei datacard?07:05
=== Guest83906 is now known as Gwarz
ActionParsnipi4ba1_: maybe:    sudo dmidecode | less     will show it, use cursors / pgup / pgdn to navigate and Q to exit07:06
ac7ssi4bal: you can also use a pipe through sed.07:07
StarminnActionParsnip: $PATH? (Launching the file I just moved to /usr/bin te same thing happens (i.e. nothing)07:07
Jordan_Ui4ba1_: Earlier you said you wanted the serial number "Of the computer", now you're asking about the serial number of the hard drive. What is your end goal?07:08
thauriswulfa QUESTION: I am unable to use other than default gsm n/w operator "idea" to connect to internet on huawei datacard?07:08
Jordan_UStarminn: You have DOS line endings in the file.07:08
pbeardoes anyone know which deb the network manager is in in ubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64.iso?07:08
Jordan_UStarminn: dos2unix /path/to/script07:09
i4ba1_my end goal is create combination serial number with hdd serial number07:09
ActionParsnipStarminn: $PATH is a list of folders the interpreter looks for binarys etc, you don't type: /usr/bin/sudo  /usr/bin/apt-get install foo      do you, you just type: sudo apt-get install foo    the paths are not needed as the binaries used are in $PATH07:09
i4ba1_i create the application07:09
i4ba1_and the application need to execute the shell command to get the hdd serial number07:09
ActionParsnippbear: network-manager-gnome   is my guess07:09
ActionParsnipStarminn: did you mark the script as executable using chmod?07:10
StarminnActionParsnip: So whenever you run a program it stores the program "name" in /usr/bin so you can just type the Program name instead of using the absolute path.07:10
StarminnActionParsnip: Yep. I chmod +x  it07:10
pbearActionParsnip: yea that's what i'm try to find but i can't find it, is it included in some other deb with a different name?07:10
ActionParsnipStarminn: most times, yes. You can see all the folders with:  echo $PATH07:10
Ub3r-N00bcould anyone recommend me encoding software for doc files ?07:10
ActionParsnippbear: that will be the deb name07:11
Mrwootwootanyone know how to get ubuntu to play a few seconds of the eye of the tiger as it boots up07:11
thauriswulfa QUESTION: I am unable to use other than default gsm n/w operator "idea" to connect to internet on huawei datacard , SETTINGS are ok?07:11
ac7ssi4bal_: run the line through a pipe: '|sed s/.*number=//07:11
lolcatMrwootwoot: Why not all of it?07:11
Mrwootwootlolcat, long song lol07:11
ActionParsnippbear: http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/network-manager-gnome07:11
ac7ssi4bal_: that will remove the contents of the line before the serial number.07:12
lolcatMrwootwoot: Still awesome! You could just cut it and set as login sound?07:12
ActionParsnipStarminn: you can see which exact binary is used if you use the command: which07:12
i4ba1_ok ac7ss i try07:12
ActionParsnipStarminn: e.g.     which nano07:12
Mrwootwootlolcat, i mean i dunno how to do it, but yeah i'm trying to find something on it07:12
lolcatMrwootwoot: The panel ddoes it07:12
Mrwootwootlolcat, panel?07:13
ac7ssi4bal_: make that '|sed s/.*SerialNo =//07:13
i4ba1_ac7ss can you show me the full syntax?07:13
lolcatMrwootwoot: Can't remember, but I saw the sentece somewhere07:13
root_hello everyone, somebody already tried ubuntu 11.04 on virtualbox and got it running? Mine won't install07:13
StarminnActionParsnip: Awesome, thanks for the info. But anyway, so back to the original question. It is marked as executable, , the commands inside of it work wihout a doubt, but everytime I go to run it, the Terminal tells me it doesn't exist. (as opposed to the GUI which just... nothing happens whatsoever.)07:14
Jordan_UStarminn: Did you see my comment?07:14
ac7ssi4bal_: sudo hdparm -i /dev/sda | grep -i serial|sed s/.*SerialNo=//07:14
Starminnroot_: I got it installed. I didn't have that sidebar though. I just went to Settings->Storage, and set whatever was Empty to my .iso on my HDD and installed. 11.04 help is in #ubuntu+1, though.07:15
i4ba1_ok thank you ac7ss07:16
ActionParsnipStarminn: ok, use tab to complete the filename. Use the absolute reference (from /), does it help07:16
i4ba1_it's working07:16
StarminnJordan_U: I did, but I didn't quite understand what you were saying. (I was hopign Action would recap it in plainer speak as he tends to do)07:16
root_starmin: i'll check that channel, tnx anyway07:16
ActionParsniproot_: also IRCing as root is a really BAD idea07:16
StarminnActionParsnip: http://paste.ubuntu.com/583678/07:16
ActionParsnipStarminn: you don't need the .sh file extension in linux ;)07:17
cenobiteWhenever load on my system is too high, I can't ssh in. It comes up with the password prompt, but as soon as I enter it the system just hangs. Any ideas what I can do? Is there some way I can prioritize ssh?07:17
root_indeed, forgot to logoff, did upgrade trough phone, i will logoff root and come back...07:17
StarminnActionParsnip: So I've been told. But.. I feel like.. I'm leaving the file so... naked...07:17
ac7ssi4bal_: did it work?07:18
ActionParsnipStarminn: if you run:   gksudo gedit /usr/bin/quakelaunch.sh        and delete the carridge returns on the end of each line, then add a new CR (carridge return), does it help. BTW, a LOT of the commands you are running are simply scripts too, they have no file extesions too07:19
RealEyeshow important is it -not- to show your local IP?07:19
StarminnActionParsnip: Just tried without the extensionto no avail.07:19
i4ba1_yes it work ac7ss07:19
ActionParsnipStarminn: it's the same, file extensions don't mean much in linux07:19
i4ba1_thank you very much ac7ss07:19
ActionParsnipRealEyes: local IP is worthless, it's the wan IP you should worry about if at all07:19
RealEyesalright thanks07:20
Jordan_UStarminn: Unix and Windows handle line endings differentely. You appear to have written your script with a Windows text editor. Running "dos2unix /path/to/script" will change the line endings to the Unix style.07:20
ac7ssi4bal_: sed is very worth learning.07:20
ActionParsnipRealEyes: there are billions of networks07:20
navweyjoin http://easyweed.tk/07:20
navweyjoin join http://easyweed.tk/07:20
rwwnavwey: Don't advertise in here.07:20
StarminnActionParsnip: Still no luck.07:20
i4ba1_yes that's worth07:21
i4ba1_i never try that command before07:21
ActionParsnipStarminn: try:  sudo apt-get install dos2unix; sudo dos2unix /usr/bin/quakelaunch.sh07:21
StarminnJordan_U: Wow. I did not know that. Hmph... How do they differ? (Yes, I  know it's not great, but my favorite editor for code happens to be Notepad++ so I WINE it... good to know though..)07:21
i4ba1_because you ac7ss tell me about sed07:21
i4ba1_now i know about sed07:22
Jordan_UStarminn: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newline07:22
ActionParsnipStarminn: gedit is pretty similar and will make proper text files as well as use a tonne less resources to run07:22
Mrwootwootanyone know how to change the color of the top and bottom bars... like blue fading to black?07:22
i4ba1_how long you use ubuntu ac7ss?07:22
ac7ssi4bal_: that's the trouble, finding out what the tool is to use. There are so many.07:22
ac7ssi4bal_: about 5 years straight now.07:23
i4ba1_wow great07:23
ActionParsnipMrwootwoot: right click -> preferences then colour there possibly?07:23
ac7ssi4bal_: There is such a good community for support. So many ways to get to your end.07:24
ActionParsnipMrwootwoot: I'm on natty now and haven't changed much like that due to laziness07:24
* ac7ss has 50lbs of books on linux, not enough. :)07:24
StarminnJordan_U ActionParsnip: Super duper awesome-ness. It works -- the dos2unix program is what did it (nice call, Jordan ;) ). It works in both /usr/bin/quakelaunch *and* /home/robert/quake/quakelaunch so awesome.07:24
MrwootwootActionParsnip,  lol yeah i tried that but it only let;s me do solid colors07:25
ActionParsnipStarminn: you can now run:   alacarte   and make a launcher to run the script07:25
StarminnActionParsnip: I do mostly PHP, and Gedit just doesn't have the same robustness of power to it, even afte rI played around with a few plugins. :(07:25
ActionParsnipStarminn: well you will need to use dos2unix for EVERY file you make07:25
Jordan_UStarminn: You might like SciTE as a text editor.07:26
ac7ssNone better than vi (or vim) Jordan_U07:26
* ac7ss discovered X over SSH this week. fun at work. 07:27
s7rany ftp server with GUI on ubuntu 10.10 ?07:28
StarminnActionParsnip: Nah. I'll make shell scripts in Gedit. I actually quite like Gedit for quick things, but it just doesn't do the job for me when you're staring had hundreds of lines of crap for extended periods of time... (I tried SciTE, Jordan_U, and while I do know that Notepad++ uses the same base as it, Notepad++ has built many features on top of it such as showing you exactly where things end and begin (I know Gedit does this too but07:28
AnAntHello, is there a tool like grep, that would search a binary file for a certain hex pattern ? and give out the address of that pattern ?07:28
ActionParsnips7r: why does it need a GUI?07:28
=== koolhead11 is now known as koolhead17
s7rfor easy management07:29
s7rset home folders for clients. permissions etc07:29
StarminnActionParsnip Jordan_U: Thanks for the heads-up though, guys. I'll just have to bear in mind that shell scripts (or, well, anything for strictly Linux) I just need ot do in Gedit. *shrug* Fair enough. Thanks again, to both of you. :) You're both awesome.07:29
ActionParsnips7r: if you install openssh-server you will get a secure ftp server and it will obey the unix permissions in your filesystem07:30
quiescensftp servers aren't often recommended unless you have a really good reason o.o07:30
Jordan_UStarminn: You're welcome.07:30

ActionParsnipthere's also pureadmin which is a GUI to pureftpd07:31
s7rActionParsnip: how i install it ?07:32
ActionParsnipftp is godawful07:32
ActionParsnips7r: install what? I named about 6 different softwares........07:32
ac7ssOh, come on, FTP does what it was designed to do.07:32
ActionParsnips7r: webmin is in software centre, like most other softwares07:32
StarminnJordan_U: So I understand the difference between LF and CR, but what are/were the advantages of Linux using LF and Windows and friends using both?07:32
ActionParsnipac7ss: sure but its very insecure and uses 2 ports (wasteful)07:33
ac7ssStarminn: CR/LF is a holdover from the teletype days.07:33
cenobiteWhenever load on my system is too high, I can't ssh in. It comes up with the password prompt, but as soon as I enter it the system just hangs. Any ideas what I can do? Is there some way I can prioritize ssh?07:33
Starminn!webmin > s7r07:33
ubottus7r, please see my private message07:33
ActionParsnipStarminn: they fixed the webmin issue now ;)07:34
cenobiteas soon as I ssh in it's quite responsive, so I'm guessing there's a setting somewhere to limit ssh sessions under a specific load07:34
s7ri saw07:34
Starminnac7ss: Well, what were the advantages back then, and are there currently any to this day of one over the other?07:34
StarminnActionParsnip: Ah, well then.07:34
Starminns7r: I retract my bot call to you.07:34
ac7ssNo, now we have SSH and it can tunnel all sorts of stuff. (vpn, X, ftp)07:34
Athenonmy ssh tunnels pretty much anything i like :)07:35
ActionParsnipac7ss: its great to ssh from work to home, then launch irssi and chat07:35
ac7ssDoes anyone still use archie?07:35
Athenoni usually use it to tunnel email, irc, and IM07:35
ac7ssActionParsnip: That is what I am doing now.07:35
ActionParsnipac7ss: i'll be doing the sameon my 12 hour shift tonight too :)07:36
Jordan_UStarminn: As C and Unix were developed together working with LF only is slightly easier in C (there is no difference between opening a binary or text file). There is no inherent advantage though.07:36
* ac7ss will ssh and run pidgon 07:37
StarminnJordan_U: What do the majority of languages use? (Just languages -- not counting how most people use Windows.)07:37
ActionParsnipac7ss: its also fun to run web browsers over X and play the sound through the serving sound device (also funny at 4am blaring out some Meshuggah to bother the neighbours ;))07:38
Jordan_UStarminn: Most languages follow the convention of the C standard libraries, strings are internally represented with only a single character for newline and on writing to a file the libraries convert to the OS's native format.07:39
AthenonActionParsnip:  i annoy my friends when theyre over from the bathroom that way using my phone :)07:39
ac7ssActionParsnip: I use mpg123 to play songs to my wife when she is on the computer.07:40
Jordan_UStarminn: On Unix no conversion is needed, on Windows conversion is needed, which is why there is a difference between opening a file as a binary file or as a text file in Windows but not in Unix.07:40
ActionParsnipac7ss: or you can use espeak and tell her nice things to get brownie points07:40
ac7ssActionParsnip: I will have to look into espeak...07:41
ac7sscool and it's installed!07:41
StarminnJordan_U: So (regarding the last bit about converting to the OS's native format) if I ran (just an example) Gedit in windows natively, and wrote something in C, it would then be saved in Windows format, and if I wrote the same in Linux, it would be saved for Linux.07:41
ac7ssActionParsnip: cat "ShakespeareSonnets.txt" |espeak07:42
ActionParsnipac7ss: hehe nice07:42
ac7ssdon't forget the & on the end.07:43
Jordan_UStarminn: Ahh, I misunderstood what you meant. I thought you were talking about handling the writing of programs that deal with text files (for instance writing your own text editor in C). Almost all programming languages accept both line endings when compiling / interpreting source code. In fact Bash does as well, the only problem is with the '#! /bin/bash\n' which is not handled by bash but rather the kernel (I think) when looking for bash to use as an in07:45
quuzeif i newly installed ubuntu as eg. bill, then is bill the root?07:47
Starminnquuze: There isn't really a "root." bill is the "Admin" account. To run something as root use "Sudo"07:47
StarminnWell, there is a root but you should never need it07:48
* ac7ss "sudo su root" often.07:49
ac7ssnot recommended.07:49
StarminnJordan_U: Ah. So if I wrote the rest of the command (everything *but* the call to the interpreter) in Windows/WINE and copy/pasted it ti wouldn't matter, but if I did that with #! /bin/bash it would screw it  up07:49
lolcatac7ss: sudo su -07:49
Jordan_UStarminn: Correct.07:50
ac7ssI type fast enough to type root.07:50
=== maedox_ is now known as maedox
StarminnJordan_U: Aha. Now, tell me more about how Linux doesn't (usually) require file extensions. I assume for pictures and such it does ( some .jpgs and .pngs and such), but what *doesn't* it need them for? (Sorry if I'm a bother. I had wondered why some files were only a name and now I can get an answer! ;) )07:51
ac7ssStarminn: many files have identifying labels in their 'headers' and linux will find the correct program.07:52
[deXter]Starminn: Most files don't need an extension, usually the header or attributes tell what sort of file it is07:53
Starminnac7ss: What makes the headers?07:53
Jordan_UStarminn: They are part of the file format for pretty much every type of file.07:54
ac7ssStarminn: part of the file standard. look an a dump and you will see it at the beginning of the file. (gif87 is the first to come to mind.)07:54
Starminnac7ss Jordan_U: aha.07:58

zairohi. is it possible to install blackberry simulator on headless ubuntu linux?07:59
[deXter]Starminn: generally, you don't need extensions.07:59
Starminn[deXter]: So basically, try it, and if it doesn't work, *then* add an extension.08:00
ac7ssExtensions are for the user to identify the file,08:00
StarminnHow long has it been this way (on Linux)? (I assume Windows requires them).08:00
[deXter]Starminn: yep but it doesn't harm to add the extension, especially if you're sharing the files with other OSes / devices / systems08:00
[deXter]Starminn: It's been like this since the beginning08:00
[deXter]Starminn: In the rare event that you find a file that isn't recognised, use the "file" command to see if it can identify the mime-type08:00
ac7ssYes, Win does require them.08:00
StarminnAwesome. Thank you very much, everyone.08:02
ac7ssThe big difference will be in different plaintext documents.08:02

ac7ssIE a KML flie vs a XPF. (linux sees both as text files.)08:02
=== Guest88862 is now known as h3r0_
ActionParsnipStarminn: windows is STILL holding onto it's DOS days of 8.3 filenames and still uses the extension to identify the filetype, Linux doesn't and analyses the data. You can give a script the file extension .jp and it will STILL be a script. Windows would see it as an image (which it isn't), try and open i with a graphical app and fail08:03

StarminnIf I pop open a Terminal, and run a file or programs or something, it has to stay open till I either force quit the application along with the Terminal, or I close the app. How do I open it without requiring Terminal the whole time too? For example, << gksudo nautilus >>08:16
osxfr33k10.10 desktop I install it from system admin driver08:16
osxfr33kI have all the updated so GDM must be the latest08:16
Ben64Starminn: go to the terminal, hit CTRL+Z, then type "bg", then you can exit the terminal08:16

eltigreI am still having trouble to access a webserver over a local network08:19
Ben64Starminn: err... "bg 1"08:19
ActionParsniposxfr33k:  I believe the nvidia 96 driver is in the proposed repo08:19
Ben64Starminn: otherwise the program woiuld probably be frozen08:20
eltigreI now how to address it, the other computer just refuses the connection08:20
ActionParsnipeltigre: can you ping the hostname, or the IP?08:20
eltigreyes, connection is fine08:20
ActionParsnipeltigre: is the service running and on the right port?08:20
StarminnBen64: No, no, no, I mean I run let's say << gksudo nautilus >>. I go to the Terminal, hit CTRL+Z, and it runs fine08:21
ActionParsnipeltigre: ok can you open the page on the local system?08:21
Ben64Starminn: well thats cause nautilus is always running :)08:21
osxfr33kBut the release notes sais there is an issue with that Prop driver in Ubuntu 10.10 meerkat and not because of the distro release but because of xorg 1.908:21
ActionParsnipeltigre: is there an access restriction in the config to only allow local access by default?08:21

FirefisheActionParsnip: thanks (I'm probalby going to have to 'doh' my brain for even asking this). ;)08:22
ActionParsnipeltigre: and is there a local firewall running with someconfig (a firewall lis installed by default, its just unconfigured and allows everything)08:22
ActionParsnipFirefishe: sorry its #e08:23
eltigrethat might be, and that's why I am asking how to find out08:23
ActionParsnipeltigre: well, did you add any rules?08:23
eltigreI don't remember setting up a firewall08:23
ActionParsnipeltigre: then it's not that08:23
ActionParsnipeltigre: ok when you try and connect do you get any http error codes?08:23
eltigreno, there is just the refused connection08:24
ac7sseltigre: is anything showing in the apache logs when you try to connect?08:24
ActionParsnipeltigre: i think there may be some access rules in the service08:24

AnthraxSSH Good morning!08:30
ActionParsnipshipship: you can make your own apt server and it will pull down all the debs08:30
ac7ssvan7hu: easily scripted with existing commands. (mpg123 is my favorite.)08:31
gnewbeltigre: Ubuntu is shipped or written with UFW , you can enable/disable by CLI.08:31
van7huac7ss: develop an app for getting experience08:32
eltigregnewb,  ufw is disabled08:32
ac7ssvan7hu: I can think of an easy way to write a sh app that will read a file, take the first entry, play it and strip that line. just keep adding lines to the file to continue the playlist.08:33
gnewbeltigre: Then you have no firewall active.08:33
DJonesshipship: http://www.howtoforge.com/local_debian_ubuntu_mirror08:33

gnewbeltigre: Actually you do, iptables, UFW is a front end for iptables.08:34

Mika__In terms of the data structures, the theoretical limit on MBR logical partitions is about 2^31 (about 2 billion), but they'd all be tiny 1-sector (normally 512-byte) partitions, and you'd need a disk with 2^32 (about 4 billion) sectors to support this many partitions. If there's a lower limit in the Linux kernel, I don't know what it is. I once put about 18 or 20 logical partitions on a disk just to test it and I had no problems wit10:37

czardozfroes, what exactly do you want to do? Configure runlevels?10:47
Dannyddoes ubuntu have an install using LVM option?10:47
arandDannyd: Using the alternate install CD yes10:47
critical_maxgah, it's actually *autokey*, not autohotkey, different app! In other words, I got keyword sniped with apt-cache search :)10:48

shruggarerUSUL, yeah, I was looking into autofs, but I don't see any way to run arbitrary commands for the mount/unmount steps, and nilfs2 requires that I mark checkpoints as "snapshots" prior to mounting them10:50

phoenixsamprasstupid Ubuntu software center, dont have the Swat stuff...10:54
froesthe thing is that even on ubuntu linux you cannot do it ?? so that if my board anytime in life fails the computer will never start because it will give me kernel panic10:54
erUSULSoftdroid_: did you enabled the root account at some point?10:54
sl33k_bullgard4, erUSUL: python installer package i guess10:54
Softdroid_erUSUL: Yes, but I disabled it again10:54
froessorry .. ubuntu server you cant10:54
bullgard4phoenixsampras: Pebkac10:54
erUSULSoftdroid_: how did you disabled it?10:54
erUSULSoftdroid_: because it looks like the system thinks is still enabled ...10:55
Softdroid_erUSUL: I found a command line that make it inactive10:55
critical_maxcoz_: just saw your post, checking into wmctrl now10:55
coz_critical_max, cool10:55
erUSULSoftdroid_: do you remember the command?10:55
critical_maxcoz_: my ideal solution integrates well with a bash wrapper. my task ultimately involves repackaging and a lot of messy glue10:55
Softdroid_erUSUL: I cant search for it10:55
bullgard4sl33k_: You can use Synaptic for that purpose.10:55
erUSULSoftdroid_: it would help10:56
coz_critical_max,  understood... not sure what the best solution would be for this.. wouldnt mind having a nice  very functional automator myself :)10:56
Softdroid_erUSUL: I think i wrote --> sudo passwd -l root10:56
sl33k_bullgard4: which folder are the packages installed?10:57
critical_maxcoz_: sadly, wmctrl doesn't work for wine apps (like most other linux automation tools...)10:57
critical_maxcoz_: the issue has been tracked down to wine not implementing stuff right for it yet, iirc10:58
sunits3r3n1t7: shall I write  */45 * * * *  sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www//opt/Pentaho/data-integration/pan.sh file='/opt/data-integration/MainTransaction.ktr ?10:58
erUSULSoftdroid_: :/10:58
critical_maxcoz_: so i'm going to use my fresh autoit install in wine to do it :)10:58
Softdroid_erUSUL: What is that mean ? :)10:58
coz_critical_max,  oh cool10:58
s3r3n1t7sunit, you're mixing replies, which is not good. No.10:58
erUSULSoftdroid_: more problems...10:58
critical_maxcoz_: yah, autoit is like a cadillac compared to all those other apps anyway *ducks*10:58
Softdroid_erUSUL: So the only way is to format it?10:59
erUSULSoftdroid_: you will have to use a livecd and chroot.10:59
sunits3r3n1t7: what shall I do ?10:59
coz_critical_max,  I will have to revisit my search and check out this autoit  :)10:59
Softdroid_erUSUL: I have a live CD, what is chroot10:59
s3r3n1t7sunit, ask your question again, to the channel.10:59
bullgard4sl33k_: Usually the pckages are only installed temporarily on your local computer unless you say differently otherwise. As a rule Ubuntu will delete them after having installed the package files on your computer and configured them.10:59
erUSULSoftdroid_: boot into the livecd and enter here11:00
critical_maxcoz_: both autohotkey and autoit work pretty well in wine, autohotkey being a fork of autoit. which one you use probably will depend on pre-existing scripts you can reuse written for one or the other. barrier of entry for both is tiny11:00
sl33k_bullgard4: the executables?11:00
coz_critical_max,  mm thanks,,, i am checking it out now11:01
bullgard4sl33k_: executables are files and no packages.11:01
critical_maxcoz_: i'm just not sure how well i can grab environment variables set by my wrapper script..that will be the fun part11:01
sl33k_bullgard4: my bad, i mean the packages11:01
sunit_ s3r3n1t7: what shall I do ?11:01
coz_critical_max,  good luck on that... would be nice to use something like this to create a compiz ... automated desktop... for a demo11:01
bullgard4sl33k_: So please put a complete sentence question here.11:01
critical_maxcoz_: if you're trying to impress your boss, i'd go right to Sikuli, it seems to be the new hotness11:02

jackleeone more question..11:34
jackleehow can i update my applications without breaking my nvidia-driver11:34
jribjacklee: use update-manager11:34
sniperjo_soerenbnoergaard: mplayer -zoom -fs thefile.mp4 , once the video is finiished playing mplayer outputs "Exiting... End of file"  and dies, and seems to kill my bash script with it11:34
jackleei have sony vpcz1 and it was a pain to get the nvida driver working..11:34
AndrewMachey guys, how would i force a reinstall of the base python on ubuntu, i think its 2.4 but i could be mistaken11:35
soerenbnoergaardsniperjo_: Is there anything after that line in the bash script?11:35
jribjacklee: why?  Just use Additional Drivers to get the nvidia drivers.  That way update-manager handles the updates for nvidia too.11:35
jribAndrewMac: why?  Reinstalling rarely fixes anything?11:35
Fuchsjacklee: updating applications should never break the driver.11:35
sniperjo_soerenbnoergaard:  yea.. echo "why isnt this working"11:35
Fuchsjacklee: updating the kernel might, if you installed the driver manually. But then you can still choose the old kernel at boot time11:35
freebseupdating the kernel or drivers does11:35
freebseapt-get update can not harm the system apt-get upgrade hm, because then it could be that X is updated11:36
jackleeit wants me to update to 10.04.111:36
jackleeif i update the kernel it may break my driver11:37
jribjacklee: how did you install the driver?11:37
jackleebecause won't the libs be incorrect.11:37
freebsethis called update in Ubunut, but actually it is an upgrade incl dist-upgrade... I don't like it, that they call it update11:37
jribfreebse: huh?11:37
Picifreebse: A dist-upgrade isn't supposed to upgrade you to a new release of Ubuntu.  Its a misnomer.11:38
soerenbnoergaardsniperjo_: Hmm.. I made a script writing mplayer mp3.mp3; echo "Hi" and it worked fine..11:38
freebsekrib: the update-manager does call a distribution upgrade not upgrade but update in Ubunut, this is confusing11:38
soerenbnoergaardsniperjo_: Echoes "Hi" after playing the file.11:38
jribfreebse: read « man apt-get » on what exactly the "dist-upgrade" command does11:38
freebsePici: forget dist-upgrade11:38
freebsePici: but from version 10.04 to 10.10 is an upgrade not an update11:39
jribfreebse: oh11:39
jackleejrib i downloaded a certain nvidia driver from the internet to get the screen to work11:39
soerenbnoergaardsniperjo_: Do you have #!/bin/bash in the start of the file?11:39

offsenseanyone have used the new firefox 4?11:41
sl33k_zvacet: it only shows the option like 'mark for installation'11:41
jribI think freebse is just complaining about the wording that update-manager uses when offering a distribution upgrade to users11:41
edbianoffsense, yes and it is great11:41
freebsezvacet: I know, the only problem is the Ubuntu calls Upgrades Updates in it's graphical GUI thing11:41
v_voffsense: me me me11:41
jribjacklee: how did you try it if your screen was black?11:41
freebseright because it should be called upgrade-manager11:41
Picifreebse: You want to file a bug if you think it is misleading.11:41
offsenseedbian, v_v : lol is it much faster than current chrome ?11:41
freebsePici: it is no bug, init?11:41
edbianfreebse, It's annoying.  There are two many things that a common layperson would call 'upgrading' and they simply ran out of words11:42

jribjacklee: I think you should use Additional Drivers and troubleshoot your issues with it.  Otherwise, yes your nvidia drivers will likely break everytime you upgrade you get a new kernel11:45

jackleejrib how do you tell which video card driver is currently installed, as i did this about 6months ago11:50
feisaredbian: ok here's what happens. Create a folder and put a file in. Right click and make a link to that. Drag the link to the desktop, call it the same name as the directory it's pointing to then drop it in the folder containing the original dir and say yes to merge11:50
jribjacklee: don't know how to determine which version of the manually installed nvidia driver is currently installed.  Maybe run nvidia-settings11:50
critical_maxfeisar: ok that makes more sense. and i have never done that, so i can't help. sorry.11:50
freebsejacklee: in this case I would not upgrade the kernel, I would compile my own kernel and leave it like that, there is no need in updating kernels really, when system is running on an old one11:51
jribfreebse: except for security reasons?11:51
sniperjo_soerenbnoergaard:  so you think bash is getting confused which EOF its found ?11:51
edbianfeisar, You're vague and confusing me.  Can you show me in terminal commands?  It's probably the most explicit and shortest way.11:51
soerenbnoergaardsniperjo_: Well, it seems mplayer is calling End of file on exit. Try it11:51
freebsejrib: patch 2.4.26.xx to 2.4.26.YYY, no need to install a new one11:52

freebsePatein: it is possible11:55
sniperjo_soerenbnoergaard:  export ignoreeof=1 doesnt change anything11:55
edbianbullgard4, It is mostly path names to the music files.  If you have the music files on the other computer in the same directories it would work.  The db doesn't actually save the music in it.11:55

edbianranjan, Oh man.  If you care that much about free software you should be using Debian.  I'm not sure about ubuntu but I'm pretty sure in Debian the answer is yes.11:57
zvacetjacklee: this is just possibility but ifyou upgrade to lucid maybe you can solve graphic problem11:57

edbianbullgard4, It's just a sqllight database.  I used some package.  I don't remember which.11:58

ranjanedbian, are you sure about that?11:59
PiciStrabe: I just told you.11:59
hemzascarleo, but i think i cxan not use the hibernate mode11:59
jackleethen i tried that someone installed this nvidia driver and got it working on 9.1011:59
StrabeI didn't see it Pici O.o11:59
jackleethats why i instaleld that11:59
Piciranjan: There are not always open source replacements for commercial software.11:59
jackleetrust me i would prefer to have just installed 10.1011:59
Strabewhat means that11:59
jribjacklee: ok, but why don't you just install 10.10?  What went wrong?11:59
PiciStrabe: Which part don't you understand?11:59
StrabeI just want to remove stuff and add some places11:59
jackleejrib blackscreen11:59
freebsePici: ya because ppl feel ok using closed source also on GNU/Linux11:59
Strabeon the menu12:00
edbianfreebse, Try to get the file out of there mv /home/simon/Desktop/test/doc.txt /home/simon/Desktop/doc.txt    You said you can't open the file with nautilus?12:00
PiciStrabe: Which part don't you understand?12:00
StrabeThe one that says commercial stuff12:00
PiciStrabe: Did that have your nick in front of it?12:00
freebseedbian: hm12:00
PiciStrabe: again: Open a nautilus window (your file manager) and go to bookmarks.12:00
scarleohemza: So you have them installed already? And hibernation doesn't work in Ubuntu Lucid then, right?12:00
jackleeonly the default driver worked which the res was ugly then i installed the addional drivers and black screen after reboot12:00
hemzaStrabe, when i creat a folder in my home it added automatically to Places Menu12:01
feisaredbian: mv: cannot stat `/home/simon/test/doc.txt': Too many levels of symbolic links12:01
jribjacklee: the nvidia driver in the repositories is a higher version than the one you are using now12:01
edbianfeisar, Can you open it with nautilus?12:01
StrabeOn bookmarks it doesn't let me delete and doesn't show places like HDD's12:01
ranjanPici, does that mean that we should depend on proprietary software and at the same time curse them.12:01
jribjacklee: which package did you install exactly, do you remember?12:01
feisaredbian: no: The Link "test" is Broken. Move it to the Rubbish Bin? This link cannot be used, because its target "/home/simon/test/" doesn't exist.12:02
jackleejrib tempting12:02
Piciranjan: I think this discussion is getting off-topic for this support channel. I'd be happy to clarify myself in #ubuntu-offtopic12:02
jackleeif i do the command said before.. i get back [    7.091636] NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module  260.19.29  Wed Dec  8 12:08:56 PST 201012:02
edbianfeisar, I think what you did when you merged was delete the folder and its contents.  Then you have a link pointing to nothing. (itself)12:02
hemzascarleo, No, not yet ... this my project, i like Linux flavors and Unix for that i want to tray them all12:02
StrabePici: That bookmarks option just let me add or delete 4 places of 12 showing on menu12:03
PiciStrabe: Which places is it not letting you modify?12:03
feisaredbian: oh dear, that's really bad (it's actually my brother who has probably now lost his uni work). Thanks for your time anyway. Would 'Foremost' help?12:03
scarleohemza: How do you know you can't hibernate if you haven't installed Ubuntu yet? Or was it a general question? Hibernation will normally work, yes12:04
StrabePici: When I click places menu, it shows HDDs, and some folders. Actually when I click on bookmarks, hdd's are not showingfor example.12:04
edbianfeisar, No idea what Foremost is.  Why did you do what you did with the symlink?  What were you trying to do?  You should look into data backup recovery.  It's hard.  I've never done it before.12:04
scarleohemza: You should have a swap that is larger than your RAM size for hibernation12:04
jackleei dont think i can go from 9.10 to 10.10 anyways..12:04
=== DingGGu is now known as LyukO
jribjacklee: because?12:04
jackleeonly to 10.04LTS12:05
scheuriI am not sure I am right here, but....I have a laptop that has wireless and an usb stick to get to (gsm) networks. How can I make my laptop to be an access point for others to share internet (aka android 2.2 as access point sharing its connection)? Any one a how to somewhere? Thanks a lot!12:05
scheurihi all12:05
feisaredbian: he did it by mistake, dragged a link from the left bar in nautilus to the desktop and then dragged back to the main window by mistake instead of the links bar on the left12:05
jribjacklee: well yes, you have to go to 10.04 before going to 10.10.  Let me check whet nvidia driver is available in 10.0412:05
edbianjacklee, Go to system -> admin -> software sources -> change the drop down from LTS releases to 'normal releases' and you will be able to.12:05
guampahow can i make make-kpkg to not add its own xxxxx-xxxxxxxx suffix to my kernel/debs after my own suffix i added with --append-to-version ?12:05
PiciStrabe: one moment12:05
jribjacklee: on 10.04 the latest driver in the repository is older than your current one :)12:07
hemzascarleo, i know that. if you hibernate your Ubuntu session for example and the next time you choose to use pcBSD ur hibernation data in swap will destroyed... this is my idea12:07
PiciStrabe: Can you pastebin the contents of /etc/fstab   and then of    mount12:07
Strabeby doing cat?12:08
jackleeedbian, i dont have software sources12:08
jackleejrib really maybe it could work12:08
jribsunit: yes, that should run every 40 minutes12:08
StrabePici: PM'd u12:08
edbianjacklee, Software sources is a GUI that controls what repositories you're using.12:08
scarleohemza: Ah, ok. But if you resume from hibernation you will always get back to your last session, you cant start another o when resuming from OS, you need to reboot to do that12:09
hemza<Strabe> what do you want to do?12:09
jribjacklee: honestly, I think 10.10 would work.  And if it doesn't well you can still just install the manual drivers and be in your current situation but on 10.1012:09
terryStrabe: cp /etc/fstab info ; mount >> info ; pastebinit info ; rm info12:09
Strabehemza: just to edit places menu like I want12:09
sunitjrib: thanks12:09
PiciStrabe: Please use a pastebin like http://paste.ubuntu.com so that its easier to read and that others can see it.12:10
StrabePici: lol ok, will do.12:10
hemzaStrabe, you want to add new folders or new partitions ???? it is different12:10
jackleecan i make it so i can upload from 9.10 to 10.10 from the terminal12:10
NeosanoHello. sooo.. I have ubuntu installed on my usb. I heard there are ways to decrease write to usb (some boot options or smth). How?12:10
hemzascarleo, you are right12:10
Strabehemza: I just want to edit the "Places" menu. adding or deleting stuff. Like a harddisk that I dont want shown, and changing icon from a folder I've already added.12:11
terryjacklee: You mean you want to do a distribution upgrade?12:11
zvacetjacklee: you can not skip versions first you will have to upgrade to 10.04 and then 10.1012:11
PiciStrabe: I'm looking at this thread myself, it seems to describe the issue you're having: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=136147812:11

jackleedamn nvidia! :)12:12
terryjacklee: I doubt it.12:12
dnivrajacklee: or you could just backup all installed pacages, install 10.10 and restore all the packages?12:12
terryjacklee: Is your current system fully updated?12:12
remoteCTRL1can u pls recommend me a gui client for ssh transfers? (i.e. scp?)12:12
pipepahello, good morning. I am having compatibility problems using openofice.org presentation. When I try to open it in windows power point the presentations made wont open12:13
PiciremoteCTRL1: filezilla?12:13
terrydnivra: I think you mean back up data12:13
hemzascarleo, thnx ... now i will install them all12:13
scarleohemza: good luck12:13
dnivraremoteCTRL1: go to system -> places -> connect to server. you can use access via GUI-nautilus.12:13
jackleei ran apt-get update just before12:13
Neosanopipepa just change the format when saving documents12:13
pipepaor they woudl open but no properly, some pages in blank... does anyone knows how to deal with compatibility maters between openofice presentation and windows powerpoint12:13
Neosanopipepa as far as I know openoffice uses its own format.12:13
terryremoteCTRL1: Use scp in a GUI terminal window.  (See man ssh)12:13
dnivraterry: and that too. one can backup all installed packages in ubuntu and restore it too :). just three or four commands will do :).12:14
pipepaor any other program to make presentations with beter compatibility?12:14
jribterry: heh...12:14
remoteCTRL1Pici: filezilla can do that? interesting thanks!12:14
freebsepipepa: you can't,m say thx to Microsoft12:14
terrydnivra: How do you backup packages?12:14
airtonixscheuri: it depends on your wifi device , **very few** devices intended to be client NICs will go into master mode (the mode required to act as a proper access point), you can attempt to provide an adhoc connection but then you're limited to wep encryption12:14
remoteCTRL1terry: which was what i was trying to avoid as i have so many files in so many different folders to copy...12:14
remoteCTRL1dnivra: also very interesting, thanks!12:14
freebsepipepa: no, sorry, PPT is not a free format12:15
jribremoteCTRL1: that's exactly when most would prefer command-line :)12:15
pipepaany suggestions of other programs in ubuntu to make presentations?12:15
zvacet!clone | terry12:15
ubottuterry: 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 !automate12:15
airtonixpipepa: PDFs can be used to do presentations12:15
jackleeok i think im going to try it :S12:15
zvacetterry:  or you can use aptoncd it ias in synaptic12:15
Neosanopipeep, http://linuxappfinder.com/office/presentations12:15

Neosanopipepa ^^^12:15
pipepathanks airtronix12:15

Neosanopipepa http://linuxappfinder.com/office/presentations12:16
jribpipepa: do you know latex?12:16
remoteCTRL1terry: i am copying the contents of ldap related files for documentation purposes, meaning pma.d etc involved...12:16
pipepaexcelent, I dont know it12:16
airtonixpipepa: your other option is to use libreoffice impress and carry around portableapps.com version of libreoffice also12:16
PiciStrabe: That I'm not sure how to do.12:16
terryremoteCTRL1: You can create a ziped archived file and then transfer it.12:16
remoteCTRL1jrib well if you frequently need to change folders it is easier to doubleclick than to type...:)12:17
dnivraterry: or try this too http://paste.ubuntu.com/583765/.12:17
remoteCTRL1terry: well i actually did not want to include all of etc, and hand picking it brings me back to square one concerning effort...12:17
dnivrapipepa: try latex-beamer as jrib suggested. you can use one of the existing templates. it isn't very difficult to learn.12:17
pipepaexcelent, thanks12:18
pipepawill look for it12:18
jackleeremoteCTRL terminal FTW12:18
hemza<pipepa> LaTex Beamer class is an excellent presentation processor12:18
dnivrapipepa: if you are using ubuntu, i would suggest install kile and latex-beamer packages. that should be enough.12:18
terrydnivra: That's interesting.12:18
remoteCTRL1terry: Pici: jrib: dnivra: anyways thanks alot, i got what i need now:)12:19
dnivraterry: that is what I usually do. glad it was useful.12:19
pipepagood, where can I find them dnivra?12:19
dnivraterry: but i think it requires you to install dselect before running the commands. dselect used to be installed by default i think. but not any more.12:19
jackleethanks for all your help guys12:19
terryremoteCTRL1: I don't think a GUI interface would make the process any faster or easier.12:19
remoteCTRL1dnivra: or if he doesnt want to install half of kde texmaker which is basically the same as kile but qt based...12:20
remoteCTRL1terry: well it does trust me;)12:20
hemza<pipepa> Scribus is an other alternative12:20
=== Dink[a] is now known as Dink
dnivrapipepa: it's in the repositories. or you should install texmaker as remoteCTRL1 suggested. i've not used it to no opinions. could be a better choice than installing kde.12:20

EsingCurrently I used Teamviewer to remoteaccess my laptop and also could shut down the laptop but the problem is that it frequently crashes and I lose control over the mashine.12:58
rebeccaso, im getting a blank screen on a ubuntu box. i think it's because the display system is setting the refresh rate too high.. now that simply editing xorg.conf is out of the question, how can i fix this? (i have ssh access to the machine)12:58
jlxsolutionsoh well it looks like i need to just copy /home/ to the back up and do a reinstall and choose the other drive for grub sigh12:59
Esingllutz, terry my worry is that when teamviewer crashed that knockd might not work either12:59
llutz_Esing: what does knockd have to do with other services?12:59
llutz_Esing: if you have a general networking problem, fix it13:00
arandhemza: Ah, in that case it will be situated in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ I think, I'm not sure what your original question was...13:00
Esingllutz_ Imagine teamviewer crashes. Would it not slow down other computer programs?13:00
Esing* or actually freeze themk13:00

terryEsing: If you want VNC try tightvnc13:01
sacarlsonEsing: putty is the ssh client on windows13:02
llutz_Esing: you could use putty + xming (or a different x-server for win) for X-forwarding13:02

terryJinxed-: Create a scipt and  yes (as Sonne says) use /etc/rc.local if  you like.13:16
terryEsing: Yes13:16
czardozJinxed-, a program that runs with root privilages, but it is NOT recommended13:16
czardozJinxed-, for security reasons13:16
Jinxed-terry: I have tried rc.local to get it to run with rc.local but it still segfaults13:16
sipiorJinxed-: it's a program that runs with the permissions of the owner of the executable file.13:16
Jinxed-czardoz: it is from my vendor... if I could get it to run at regular privlages I would love that13:17
Esingterry Since my ubuntu is _only_ the server would it even matter if I use SSH or x11vnc?13:17
terryEsing: and have x11vnc started with the --forever switch13:17
terryEsing: That is correct.13:17
sacarlsonJinxed-: maybe make a bash script that will wait till it can ping google.com before it run's your application at boot13:17
czardozJinxed-, you mean you just want it to run at startup?13:17
EsingIs SSH actually preinstalled on all Unix systems?13:17

Fuchsrebecca_: definitely13:22
Fuchsrebecca_: if you are on a VT, you might need to set the DISPLAY Variable. Keep in mind that this only changes the settings for X11,13:23
Fuchsfor VTs (Terminals) you would need to set the mode as a grub command line13:23
rebecca_Fuchs: ahhhh, yeah, because im on the box via SSH13:23
Fuchsrebecca_: then you need to set the DISPLAY variable, and maybe even give the needed access via the xhost command first13:24
Jinxed-where is the xinitrc file13:26
Frotsin $HOME13:26
Frotsor /etc/X1113:26
Frotsin home it is .xinitrc13:27
Frotsfor each user IIRC13:27
rebecca_Fuchs: well, the problem is that the box boots fine, fileserving and remote access are perfect, but on the graphical front, once grub loads up, the most i see on the screen is a frozen cursor on a black background. alt+ctrl+f1 doesn't work.. and i don't see any errors in the Xorg.0.log..13:27
Jinxed-Frots, does the one in $HOME execute with root privlages?13:27
czardozJinxed-, no13:27
FrotsJinxed-: no, as user13:27
Fuchsrebecca_: you might be interested in /var/log/Xorg.0.log  and   lspci | grep VGA13:27

Frotsso it doesnt see the keyboard and mouse13:28

czardozJinxed-, as I said, SUID programs run with root privilages whenever they are run13:29
Jinxed-czardoz, I'm sorry I don't understand what you mean13:29
Frotsczardoz: what does the nosuid mount option has for effect on those?13:29
rebecca_Frots: yeah, i have SSHed to it fine. it's a server but to get mythtv configured i need a functioning X environment13:29

rebecca_Frots: 01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc 760G [Radeon 3000]13:29

Jinxed-czardoz, holy cow... are you saying I could just do sudo chmod +s /my/program13:30
FrotsJinxed-: if it is a binary13:31

sipior_UsUrPeR_: try "sudo mdadm --zero-superblock /dev/sda"13:42
jjpururper: use shred if you want to wipe with hi certainty13:42
terry_UsUrPeR_: Then just use fdisk and delete the partitions you want and add what ever else you need.13:43

BluesKaj[criipt], is your connection being slowed or interrupted in any way , check the driver debug in your package manager to get the proper name for the debug app and remove it.13:46
rebeccaFrots: hmmm, there is not xorg.conf in /etc/X11/13:47

Jinxed-Frots, czardoz Is this the correct way to have something start with startup applications: name: foo Command: sh /path/to/script.sh > /path/to/log 2>&1 Comment:foobar ? because it doesn't appear my script ran as the log file was never created?13:48

[criipt]Blue1, Card words fine with it, but pauses my module radomly for a sec.. I found it dumping stuff to dmesg,.13:50
[criipt]Want to stop that !13:50
FrotsI dont have a radeon card so I dont know the latest stuff13:50
Frotsbut I think you need the closed source driver (catalyst) toi use hardware acceleration13:50
Jinxed-Frots, my script calls the program, and if it shuts down waits 30 seconds and then calls it again etc. So it is just a wrapper on how I want to call it. However the only thing segfaulting was my the actual program binary, which is the ONLY thing I changed the SUID on. I am now able to run my script which calls the program at the user level sucessfully.13:51

sipior_UsUrPeR_: are you sure the device name has not changed?13:54
rebeccaFrots: will that retain networking? the only way i can currently communicate with this box is via SSH13:54
terryFrots: Ubuntu doesn't use runlevels anymore... right?13:54
Frotsrebecca: yes that will still start the networking13:54
llutz_Jinxed-: mpeg-encoder like mencoder? why does it need suid-root?13:54

FrotserUSUL: so how would you boot to text console from grub?13:56

AkshayFrots:Where can I find it?? Sorry I'm a noob13:56

_UsUrPeR_sipior: there is only one hard drive plugged in to the motherboard. That is good enough for me13:56
Frotsin the grub.conf13:56
_UsUrPeR_sipior: so yeah, this is the only drive plugged in, and it seems to have two devices.13:57
llutz_Jinxed-: i guess it creates a device that you need to change owner/group of, using an udev-rule13:57
_UsUrPeR_sipior: /dev/md127 and /dev/sda13:57
_UsUrPeR_both can be partitioned, and /dev/md127 is taking up 14 gigs13:57
_UsUrPeR_while /dev/sda is missing 14 gigs13:57
_UsUrPeR_I can't even dd /dev/sda because it would only dd that partition, while ignoring /dev/md12713:58

piyushmishraFrots: I can still see my pointer. cant move it14:00
Frotsor boot recovery14:00
llutz_Jinxed-: usual way would be to adjust group/permission to make it usable by a non-priviledged user.14:00
_UsUrPeR_however, running mdadm --remove /dev/sda /dev/md0 has error -- mdadm: /dev/sda does not appear to be an md device14:00

_UsUrPeR_mdadm --remove /dev/md12714:01

_UsUrPeR_is there something I have to do to record partition changes from mdadm after I run them?14:01
