phoenixsamprashow to install skype via ubuntu software center?? HELP!!! SOSSS00:12
th0rpyrophelia: well, you can use ifconfig to force the new ip. And if the interface is configured properly it should pick up the new ip at reboot00:12
aeon-ltdphoenixsampras: search and install it00:13
pyropheliath0r: I can't reboot this system.  and i've used ifconfig to try to change it but setting the interface down then brining it back up keeps the old information00:13
Neroonneed some ideas regarding a new wlan router (can't connect with ubuntu, winxp works)00:13
itaylor57phoenixsampras: what do you get when you type which skype in terminal?00:13

clarezoeI have a problem with gimp, I hope anyone can help, there is no one in the gimp channel :(  I cannot set the color to white, instead it's greenish. Really annoying, I deleted the .gimp.2.7 folder to reset all the setting, still the same problem. I don't really know how to search for this problem.00:14
pyropheliath0r: ifconfig doesn't read /etc/network/interfaces.  there is another command that does but I can't remember it00:14
th0rpyrophelia: then the interface isn;t configured properly. Been a long time, but it used to be stored in /etc/network/ if I remember correctly00:14
pyropheliakunal: you mean ftp server?  filezilla would be pretty useless on port 8000:14
exutuxpyrophelia: ifup ifdown00:14
pyropheliaexutux: almost positive I tried that, but I got some weird message x "package is not installed"00:15
pyrophelialet me check again00:15
pyropheliath0r: it is, i've used this config many times00:15
th0rpyrophelia: ifconfig doesn't read that file, but you can use it to force an ip from the command line00:15
pyropheliaah I see what you mean00:15

snozberry@adiman you can use the software center to browse by category in the later ubuntu editions and select games00:19
Neroonclarezoe: and any other color is just fine? is it a new image or do you edit an existing one?00:19

Neroonclarezoe: strange. so no matter what image you open and try to edit, it doesnt do anything but aks for a save due to changes?00:22

tripelbI have a question. So I switched user into my guest account to check that it worked, Ub10.04 - then I chose log out... and the screen went blank. I had to hardboot AFAIK to get a "living breathing system" up.  What did I do? I wanted to log that user out and go back to "me". Could I have recovered? I had no cursor, no anything. Please advise, sincerely, A_User00:23
clarezoeNeroon, exactly, but I do can add text to the image, but the color is strange, always has some green in it00:23
smiley7hey guys,how do you add the shutdown menu to the Main Gnome menu ?00:23
YankDownUndertripelb, Sounds like a graphics driver & GDM issue mate....00:24
icewatermanActionParsnip: i dont know what exactly changed, but my sound issue disappeared. its not any change to alsa-base.conf etc.00:24
fishscenesmiley7: system > Preferences > Main Menu. You can make a shut down command00:24
smiley7whats the command ?00:25
clarezoeNeroon, http://paste.ubuntu.com/584054/ this is the output from the console, but I don't think it's relevant to gimp00:25

mickster04smiley7: remove the button from the top right of your panel?00:26
tripelbYankDownUnder, what's gdm?  I've been using this for months and months. This is the only problem I have, signing out of the guest account. I can leave it going (as I have) and it's fine. So that kind of doesnt sound like a graphics driver to me. If so tlel me how you figure it. Thanks00:26
tripelbtell00:26
smiley7no i am moveing the menu to the bottom00:26
* tripelb thinks GDM (gol darn machine)00:27

coz_meek,  ok  there are two ways of dealing with this however,, for a better explanation you might want to go to #radeon channel and ask that is where I got the info for my one client with the same issue,,,it is an overscan issue00:39
ActionParsnipmeek: what was the last chip you had (I believe you said you had upgraded)00:39
meekhow can i get rid of grub from xp, its not giveing me the option to boot from cd00:39
lashanice ubottu :D00:39
meekthanks coz_00:40
coz_meek,  it can be dealt with either with settings on the tv  or with xrandr command I believe00:40
lashathank you guys00:40

ubottuFirefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. To install it, add the PPA repository with the following command « sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade »00:43
coz_meek,   you could download Dban  for wiping the drive real clean00:43
ActionParsniplasha: it will upgrade the old to the new00:43
Netizen1993Hi all.. got a small situation...00:43
meekwould i have to install my bios again?00:44
lashaActionParsnip: ok thank you :)00:44
IdleOneActionParsnip: similar to your request if you feel it needs improving I'll edit it.00:44
coz_meek,   but if the cd is not showing boot from cd  when you see the little keyboard logo at the bottom of the live cd ,,, hit enter,,, it should give a choice00:44
Netizen1993Ubuntu is installing, on my system fine.. however it's detecting and using a software raid.. which I don't want it to do.00:44
Netizen1993is there anyway I can disable it?00:44
meeki cant boot into linux right now becuase of the grapihics issue, thats why im trying to reslove thru windows00:44
seviththrow it at the wall00:44
sevithteach it a lesson00:44
Netizen1993or pass some option during install not to activate it?00:44
ActionParsniplasha: or you can use the daily build and you will get a seperate browser, but remove the ppa after installing the browser or it will upgrade 3.6.whatever to the daily as well00:44
kad__heys!! if route is mark  as 16 in RIP it enter the: Invalid time!! the Holddown time will start from here so if it receive better metric route, it will be valid again before the flush time? am i right ... thanks00:45
coz_meek,  ah mmm  then you will have to set the tv  settings although I know in windows this may not be an issue00:45
lashaActionParsnip: ok I think it already installed successfully though00:45
ActionParsnipIdleOne: seems fine, possibly could add the daily build which installs a seperate firefox (I hate firefox)00:45
kad__sorry wrong channel00:45
IdleOneActionParsnip: daily build would be a little to buggy maybe to have new users install00:46
itaylor57ActionParsnip: I was wondering what the fuss today was about ff4, using chromium I forgot about ff00:46
meekcoz_ is there anyway to get rid of grub  from windows?00:46
coz_I hate firefox 400:46
smiley7ok,i installed Gnomenu ...but i dont see in on the menu...00:46
IdleOneActionParsnip: rather stick to stable but you can run it by other ops and see what they think00:46
francesc1meek: grub isnt part of windows00:47
ActionParsnipIdleOne: true but it has the advantage of leaving the old one. I guess its not hard to rmove the ppa then reinstall browser00:47

sevithWhat did you do meek?00:47

gorfexMBR00:48
meekim trying to fresh install everything to 64 bit, but grub doesnt give me the option to boot from cd or anything, and i cant get into unbutu right no00:48
sevithSo when you boot00:48
francesc1grub wont to that for you... you need to acess the bboot menu before grub00:48
sevithyour given a grub shell?00:48
coz_meek,  I am not sure I understand why the live cd is not giving option to boot from it00:48
coz_meek,  do you see a keyboard logo when you boot from cd?00:49
coz_meek,  at the bottom of the screen?00:49
meekit boots bios then grub ..well i have 10 sec to press esc to bring up grub otherwise it boots xp00:49
gorfexthe boot from cd option is usually given by your BIOS.. or am i wrong?00:49
francesc1gorfex: you are 100% correct00:49
coz_meek,  then check in the bios if the cdrom is first boot device00:49
meekcdrom is boot first00:50
meekjust not working00:50
coz_meek,   mmm00:50
francesc1meek: what type of computer is it00:50
meekcustom00:50
coz_meek,  go back into the bios,,,switch around boot devices and then switch it back and save00:50
francesc1meek: so u want to install 64 bit on it... is it compatible00:51
coz_francesc1,  ah good thinking :)00:51

francesc1use untebootin00:52
ActionParsnipNeroon: the router is moot00:52
ActionParsnipNeroon: its the wifi adapter you need to worry about00:52
fishsceneNeroon: The problem is most likely with the driver on your computer under Ubuntu00:52
giikerActionParsnip: thanx, I will read it now!00:53

meekthats my dxdaig if that helps atall00:53
meekdo you think i can run 6400:53
coz_meek,  I am concerned that the cdrom is not being picked up as first boot device... have you checked for bios updates for that motherboard now that you are on windows?00:53
Neroonfishscene: nope, can't be. worked with the old router (got exchanged)00:53

meekill let you guys know how it goes00:54
meekthanks for the help00:54
francesc1meek: i am sure that s the prob00:54
guedesavterry, I did apt-get upgrade00:54
coz_meek,   its apparenlty a 64 bit compatible system00:55
francesc1meek: i had the same prob with my live cd... now i just use usbs00:55
francesc1coz_: yea it is ...00:55
guedesavNow it's worse: it not only doesn't detect my input devices, it stopped working with my wireless card. Any further suggestions?00:55
ActionParsnipNeroon: then you need to associate with the new. Routers use strong standards set by the ISO foundation. If it doesn't then it isn't a router00:55
francesc1coz_: thats why i am thinking its the actual media00:55
fishsceneNeroon: Unless the router is configured wrong or somehow corrupted, the problem is still most likely on the computer-side.00:55
charlesnoHi, I am running 9.10, and today Rhythmbox stopped working. I click the icon and nothing happens. I've tried removing and re-installing to no avail.00:55
ozatomicon my hardy install apt installed php5.2 how can i get 5.3?00:55
ActionParsnipNeroon: maybe you need to configure the router some00:55
Neroonfishscene: and the weird thing is, 2 laptops didn't work anymore (both ubuntu, one kde, one xfce)00:55
coz_francesc1,  most likely00:55
ActionParsnipcharlesno: run it from a terminal, the output may give clues00:56
coz_meek,  you could also try the minimal install cd  only  megs  very little chance of download corruption or even burn coruption00:56
francesc1coz_:  weill i ll guess we will have to wait and see :p00:56
charlesnodo i just type "rhythmbox" in terminal?00:56
ActionParsnipcharlesno: i suggest you upgrade soon, Karmic support ends next month00:56
coz_meek,  only 12  megs rather00:56
ActionParsnipcharlesno: yes00:56
fishsceneNeroon: Are you able to access the router configuration page?00:56

The startup screen runs, then it flashes to a black screen that says time and date error, and then it flashes to another black screen with just a lock and a cursor in the upper lefthand corner..

nbfis there a deb available for firefox 4?02:38
itaylor57!ff4 | nbf02:38
ubottunbf: Firefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. To install it, use the PPA by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox02:38
Jordan_UspeedrunnerG55: The drive will repair what it can automatically. If you've gotten to the point that you're getting read errors then you probably want to get a new drive.02:38
nbfthanks itaylor5702:38

will_ActionParsnip: Is there an available program that can compile sources for me? If "Automake" is the suggested program, which version should i get?02:41

will_ActionParsnip: My ability to compile manually... "Properly" is somewhat of a dream.02:45
ActionParsnipwill_: the xorg edgers compiles the latest intel drivers weekly as far as I recall, if not more often than that...02:46
Jordan_UspeedrunnerG55: Then tell whoever owns the computer to backup any important data as soon as possible and get a new hard drive. What problem / error message are you actually seeing?02:46
will_ActionParsnip: They have pre-made .deb packages?02:46

will_ohsix: In general. The performance for the Intel IGP's has been going downhill since 9.04 anyway though.02:57
will_ohsix: The change to UXA has made a massive performance impact on gaming/video performance for these specific IGP's.02:58

hohogrendal-prime : I am just worried since I run a high traffic website on it03:54
ohsixgrendal-prime: sometimes touching all the files in the set on both sides is undesirable, and you need lower latency between syncs, so it's not for everything03:54
Jordan_Usphinxxx: You do *NOT* want to disable journaling on that drive. Don't even think about it. You don't want to write anything to that drive.03:54

ohsixJordan_U: the only aditional wear it could be is in the servo mechanism; the larger block sizes are just for speed, and you truly have a contrived scenario if you are running the clock out on the servo mechanism04:16
StepNjumpcritical_max, it's true that the netbook version of Ubuntu is limited version because of limited space on the HDD and limited RAM. So they try to keep it light04:16

grendal-primewhat do you do when you reach 25000 inodes on a windows system?04:21
Xioni just install a app called tweetdeck and requires a keyring to open it04:21
grendal-primei would like to see you deal with that04:22
critical_maxstepnjump: yeah in the past ubuntu's battery life is less than win7, be nice to see it catch up ;)04:22
StepNjumpcritical_max: I'm going to get a second one at costco. I got mine for 300$. I presume they will spike up in price with the tsunami disaster. It's a good investment04:22
Xioncan i use keyring for any app i like to protect ?04:22
critical_maxI found a screen recorder in ubuntu that works great, it's called "istanbul"04:22
Jordan_Uohsix: And GNU ddrescu's logging is great.04:22
ohsixgrendal-prime: considering theres no concept of an inode to windows ...04:22

grendal-primecrus, you got a windows system that will deal with that?04:22
StepNjumpOk I went on battery now04:22
grendal-primeno shit?04:22
crusgrendal-prime: okay, so what was the problem with rsync on windows exactly? we seem to have gone a bit sideways with this one04:22
ohsixJordan_U: clever fellow! i knew my ruse wouldn't last for long04:22
StepNjumpIf you are still here, I will let you know04:22
critical_maxstepnjump: yeah, depending on what you're doing, on desktop replacement type laptops linux can be brutal on battery04:22

Jordan_Uohsix: Read the documentation for both GNU ddrescue and non-GNU ddrescue and I think you will agree that GNU ddrescue is superior.04:23
grendal-primeno crus  you misted the point earlyer,  we tried rsync on windows..it could not deal with the amount of files..or the amount of data...it died..several times.04:23
StepNjumpI can tell you that it heats up much less in ubuntu04:23

Jordan_Usphinxxx: Mount a partition that is large enough to hold a full disk image then tell me what the mountpoint is.04:24
ohsixJordan_U: i didn't disagree, i was just looking for something that wasn't a red herring04:24
Xioncan i add a app to keyring,,i mean password protected  ?04:24
grendal-primei dont know what you do for a living...but what i do is reliably move alot of data round ...and windows does not do it ..if it did i would not have a job04:24
GeForce88apport on 11.04 is buggy. can't file bug report because it faults out. any ideas how to report the fail ?04:24
lwizardlcan someone help me figure out why when i burn a disc using k3b windows can not mount the discs ? i use linux+windows, an no multi-session04:24
crusgrendal-prime: more then likely, rsync had a hard time dealing with too many files in a single directory, which is a more a problem to do with NTFS rather then rsync..04:24
StepNjumpcritical_max: What might help too is to do a sudo pm-powersave true04:25
crusgrendal-prime: and probably more to do with you not understanding the limitations of the file system you were using.04:25
ohsixGeForce88: "faults out", does apport crash or say that type of crash can't be reported? also, you might try #ubuntu+104:25
chelzis firefox 4 going to replace firefox 3.6 in lucid?04:25
StepNjumpcritical_max and configure the cache. I used to have a great article on that somewhere..04:25
StepNjumpIt sped up the netbook quite a bit04:25
xangua!fx4 | chelz04:25
ubottuchelz: Firefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. To install it, use the PPA by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox04:25
critical_maxstepnjump: ssd would also help a ton i bet04:25
critical_maxstepnjump: i always burned through battery by taxing the video card and/or the hard drive04:26
ohsixlwizardl: did k3b end up creating a udf disk? possibly because of the size of the files you burned? windows generally doesn't do well with udf04:26
chelzxangua: that tells me how to install it, but not if fx3.6 will be unavailable. i would like to keep fx3.6 if i could.04:26
grendal-primecruse..ok..your missing the point..04:26
GeForce88ohsix, windows pops up says sorry, apport has unexpectantly closed. do you wish to file a bug report blah blah, click to report and system freeses04:26
grendal-primeyou run rsync on a windows machine..what can you conect it to with a large number of files in one dir?04:26
StepNjumpcritical_max, yeah04:26
ohsixGeForce88: peculiar, afaik apport is mostly python, if it were crashing something would be seriously amiss04:27
StepNjumpcritical_max, is there a way that you know I could leave you an offline message whilst you are gone so that you can read it when you connect?04:27
StepNjumpon irc04:27
crusgrendal-prime: no, you're missing the point.. rsync is not at fault..04:27

ohsixi pinned ff4 from natty; that was the awesome04:29
grendal-primei move it ...sorry...04:29
zakwilsonThanks, xangua.04:29
ActionParsnipchelz: 4 is default in natty04:30
lwizardlohsix, nope. settings where write mode auto, verify written data, filesystem linux/unix + windows, not udf04:30
critical_maxxangua: ooh thanks, I didn't know it got released today yet.04:30
chelzActionParsnip: is 3.6 available in natty?04:30
lwizardlwhats a level 3 iso level ?04:30
critical_maxstepnjump: thanks, be curious to know the difference if any these days04:30
grendal-primenext cruse...it needs to go through the internet two another machine..no established tunnel?04:30
lwizardlohsix, and generate rock ridge extensions, generate joliet extentions04:31
ActionParsnipchelz: not sure, I don't use firefox these days04:31
ohsixlwizardl: well "filesystem linux/unix + windows" sounds like its trying to hide the information you need from you; if you can read it in linux, check the output of dmesg in a terminal to see what the volume is04:31
crusgrendal-prime: 250000 files in 1 folder is poor management to begin with imo.04:31
ohsixchelz: it isn't available04:31
chelzthat's interesting04:31
grendal-primeyour not asnwering the question and these files are stacking up as we speek04:31
grendal-primealso they are on a netapps filer04:32
lwizardlohsix, ok it reads fine under linux what do i need to do to read the info you was asking about dmesg04:32
ruanis it normal for a fsck to take 5 seconds?04:32
ActionParsnipchelz: i guess you could use the archived file from the mozilla page and integrate it04:32
ActionParsnipruan: depends on options and size of filesystem being scanned04:32
grendal-primebzzzzzt...crus your fired04:32
ruanbecause it seemed to do a file check on startup and it took 5 seconds04:33
ohsixlwizardl: you need not do anything, it just tells you what format the disk is, which might indicate what problems windows would have with it04:33
grendal-primehoho?04:33
ruani dont know why it did a filecheck though04:33
crusyou want a solution to a problem.. yet the problem is very vague..04:33

lwizardlsays filesystem isofs04:34
ohsixnetapp is probably a canard; you're totally divulging how sorry the scenario is, but you're totally buying into rsync essentially marginalizing a job that wouldn't exist if not for bad management04:34
ActionParsnipcrus: smooth :)04:34

grendal-primei already have the answer because thats what i do..tell people without a clue how to move there 5 metric tone of garbage data from one place to another because there app sucks and as you so put it is poorly planed...but i dont sit on my thumb..i do something about it'04:34

glitchdok so i have a script to lauch a server for a game, it works fine if i run it in terminal but i want to assign it to a shortcut on my top panel, but it doesnt launch when i click it?? what am i missing??04:35

grendal-primeyou want to talk in a private channel i will gladly explain to you how to move very large amounts of data with very minimal equipment.04:37
critical_maxprime: check SuSE too for school advocacy, SuSE is huge in education04:37
grendal-primesometimes these public chats are not good for discussion of details.04:37

primeas ubuntu04:37
soreauglitchd: could be an environment issue. alos make sure it is executable04:37

glitchdsoreau, i believe it is, when i double click it i get the options on how to run it04:38
glitchdcritical_max, it works if i double click it, i want to put it to a icon shortcut on my top panel04:38
critical_maxprime: suse is a linux distro that targets the educational market (among others) - i've personally seen labs full of SuSE machines at a major university - you are more likely to find advocacy documents in their community IMHO04:39

soreauglitchd: So you made the shortcut on the panel, did you specify the full path to the script?04:39
ruanglitchd: a shortcut on the panel could work though04:39
soreauglitchd: Might need to make the script cd into the proper directory as ruan suggests04:40

superman097can i ask something about mrtg with ipv6 support here?04:43
grendal-primething runs for 6 hours on a charge....well i mean you know running around and whatnot..thing is the mic is werid..because pulse audio things it is a sterio mic04:44
critical_maxsuperman097: go ahead, i used mrtg in a former life..04:44
grendal-primei have to silence one of the mics for my ipphone apps to work..04:44

grendal-primei dont know ActionParsnip has a 4 core atom ...the video is full accelerted, wif..networ...vidoe out..everything workd (cept for the mic) right out of the box..04:46
ohsixgrendal-prime: thats a well known problem, alsa doesn't provide the information to automatically do that for clients, or provide the noise reduction it is intended for04:46
ruan4 core atom? lol04:46
grendal-primeya werid i know..but its a netbook...with 4 core..04:46

grendal-primei mean..you know...if you still need to marry her off and all...04:54
DrkCodemani had a hell of a time with my usb headset with pulse audio04:54
DrkCodemanin addition to using apps like wine04:55
ohsixgrendal-prime: are you vision or otherwise impaired? it's the first hit on google, these things aren't this amazing04:55
DrkCodemanmy usb headset would cut in some instances very fuzzy (playing wow) through wine04:55
DrkCodemanchanged to alsa worked great04:55
ohsixDrkCodeman: would you believe all the wine sound output drivers are broken? forsooth, it only shows up when you do nonblocking sound i/o04:55
critical_maxDrkCodeman: if you were running Ventrilo, that's always flaky to the extreme, been there04:56
critical_maxDrkCodeman: there was a Ventrilo-compatible open source project that launched over a year ago, I wonder how far they are04:56
ohsixthat's a wine problem, not a pulse one :\04:56
ohsixpasuspender is great for that though04:56
grindcrusherget mangler04:56
critical_maxmangler, that's it04:56
ruanalso, gksudo gstreamer-properties04:56
grindcrusherit works pretty good04:57
ohsixruan: what would that do04:57
ruanohsix: changes default plugin for stuff, not sure what exactly04:57
DrkCodemani also had problems in native unreal tournament 200304:57
grindcrusherconnect to ventrillo servers04:57
DrkCodemanso it wasn't a wine issue04:57
DrkCodemanbtw native ut2k3 was a major pain to install04:57
critical_maxDrkCodeman: probably not worth ripping out stable subsystems like pulseaudio to get 8 year old apps running. :)04:58
ohsixruan: it just sets some stuff for gconfsink, if you're not using playbin or something that does, OR gstreamer, it wouldn't do anything04:58
ruanohsix: i use gstreamer04:58
grendal-primeohsix, well not really...as if i was they would not let me fly the plane anymore...but i will say i was probably being a little to literal in my search criteria..i was looking for this machine specifically04:59
ohsixDrkCodeman: you wouldn't believe it but lots of software is broken! they assume blocking audio output to rate limit sample delivery; this is not how pulse works (though properly written realtime software will clock its own sample rate and work in both cases)04:59
grendal-primei do thank you for the link though..04:59
grendal-primeeven though..it does not support a solution.05:00
DrkCodemanand is landscape open source?05:00
ohsixgrendal-prime: i was being a little facetious, i searched for alsa stereo mic phase ... which could be inferred from what i had already said, but uses terms of art :[05:00
ohsixgrendal-prime: the solution for a user is ugly manual configuration in cryptic configuration files, alsa should really be handling it05:01
DrkCodemanAnyone here know about landscape?05:02

ohsixi bet that link might have something to say05:03
DrkCodemandoesnt say much realy05:04

ohsixgrendal-prime: theres already some stuff in pulse to work around this apparently, i don't know where to get a new enough version though. ppas or anything05:08
ruanwell they've got to get money somehow05:08

MuhammadTahirthx let me check05:23
ohsixif you want to run it from a terminal: sudo software-properties-gtk05:23
Jordan_U!gksudo | ohsix05:24
ubottuohsix: If you need to run graphical applications as root, use « gksudo », as it will set up the environment more appropriately. Never just use "sudo"! (See http://psychocats.net/ubuntu/graphicalsudo to know why)05:24
ohsixruan: thats gone in newer versions btw, software center has the extra/multiverse/what have you in it now05:24
ohsixJordan_U: caring not, though i've read it before05:24
ruannewer versions? like 11.04?05:25
ohsixi use sudo -s and run stuff from there05:25
ruanbecause im on the latest 10.1005:25
ohsixruan: yep05:25
b0tzjust tried hdmi and vga, both same problem05:25
ruangtg.05:25
Jordan_Uohsix: You should care about it, especially when helping others. It's not nice to knowingly give advice that could cause a user to no longer be able to login.05:25
ohsixruan: it might not even be there in 10.10 if it's not an upgrade05:25
b0tzshould I try hooking it up via usb too, or what05:26
ohsixJordan_U: when that happens i'll make a note of it05:26
ohsixb0tz: usb would be how the touch controller connects, yes05:26
b0tzalright..05:26

grendal-primehehehe05:27
nickalshaha sorry guys05:27
nickalsjust expressing my love <305:28
Xioni will like to block apps with password05:28
grendal-primemy chinese mid can get apps now..well i mean for longer than the hour before google realizes its a non approved device05:28
ohsixJordan_U: without ssh involved, which tries to handle your credentials; you won't have a problem05:28
MuhammadTahirthx it worked05:28
MuhammadTahirone more thing \05:29
ohsixJordan_U: it goes without saying that as root, any file can be changed to be owned by root; so ones that deal with your users credentials is bad news05:29
Jordan_Uohsix: It is something I have to help users with often, and I am sure that there are many more that can't even ask for help as they can't ask for help when they can't login to GNOME. Please don't suggest that people use sudo with graphical apps.05:29
pinoyoragonIt seems my swap is not mounted, "The disk drive for /dev/mapper/ubuntu10-swap_1 is not ready yet or not present". What shld i do?05:29
nickalsJordan_U, sorry bout that, im just in an un-deniably good mood. that was an AMSG to a bunch of gaming channels, sometimes i forget about freenode.05:29
MuhammadTahirwhenever and whatever i try to install through ubuntu software centre it installs too slowly05:29
bazhangnickals, chat elsewhere05:29
ohsixJordan_U: give me one scenario05:29
MuhammadTahiras from the last 20 minutes i m installing Vlc05:29
nickalsbazhang, read my last message to Jordan_U05:30
Xionis there any aplication that block my apps with password ?05:30
ohsixJordan_U: not forgetting that i, myself; have some idea about which files are touched by what i'm running, whereas a user may not05:30
sacarlsonXion: just move the app to the /usr/sbin dir05:30
pinoyoragonSWAP Problem (maverick): It seems my swap is not mounted, "The disk drive for /dev/mapper/ubuntu10-swap_1 is not ready yet or not present". What shld i do?05:31
Jordan_Uohsix: Do you at least agree that users that do not know which apps are going to touch ~/.Xauthority should as a rule use gksudo with graphical apps?05:31
ohsixJordan_U: yes, but not as instructions from myself, and ssh isn't unique in that regard, but it's close05:32
ohsixsudo chown root:root ~/.ICEauthority is also ill advised05:33
Xionsacarlson:) what u mean move the app ?  installed there ?05:33
myrmidettecan anyone walk me through setting up video streaming from ushare to xbox 360?05:33
sacarlsonXion: just mv /usr/bin/app /usr/sbin/app   then it will require a sudo and password to run05:34
wizardkenmyrmidette, it's in slackbook05:34
ohsixJordan_U: software-properties-gtk is basically just an applet for synaptic to handle software sources, it doesn't touch any credentials05:34
myrmidettewizardken, link?05:34
ohsixpoint taken however05:34
ohsix(for the third time :)05:35
sacarlsonXion: if you are creating an app deb then install it in /usr/sbin in your deb control file05:35
MuhammadTahirohsix i m waiting05:35
Xionsacarlson:) im not creating apps,,i want to password protect come apps05:36
Jordan_Uohsix: Please then either add a note explaining that users should only use sudo with the specific graphical application you are mentioning, or use gksudo in your examples to other users. People do what they see, and what is recommended to them, and unless told otherwise it's perfectly reasonable for them to (mistakenly) expect that if sudo can be used with some graphical apps it can be used with others safely as well.05:36
dualcorei need help with postfix05:36
wizardkeni686 true 64 bit and i86_64 just an addon to 34 bit ?05:36
DrkCodemanubuntu going to run smooth with socket r in a addition to the new 8 core amd bulldozer?05:36
sacarlsonxion: well that would be one method I'm sure there are 100 more ways to do it05:36
ohsixJordan_U: it wouldn't be a whitelist, but a blacklist, there are few scenarios where your credentials are replaced05:36
ferlicjlCan someone help me with Wireless Connections?05:37
ohsixwizardken: i686 is the p6, the first pentiums & pentium pros ;] no 64bit there05:37
MuhammadTahirubuntu software centre is taking much longer is it normal ?05:37
Jordan_Uohsix: Then please include said blacklist in any comments to users where you suggest using sudo with a graphical app. Or, more reasonably, suggest the use of gksudo instead.05:37
MuhammadTahiri m installing vlc and it is too much slow05:38
dualcoreMuhammadTahir: do you have any other downloads going?05:38
MuhammadTahirno nothning else05:38
wizardkenohsix, oic thanks05:38
ohsixJordan_U: i make no suggestions, if it comes to be something that is likely to modify a file that will make logging in, or anything like it; difficult, i'll defer to gksudo or find a better way to do it05:39

MuhammadTahirjust played a song from youtube and nothing else05:39
dualcorehow large is the application you're installing and what is your bandwidth?05:39
sacarlsonxion: if that user is sudo and you have accessed sudo in the last pretimeout then that would be the case05:40
MuhammadTahirits 20.7 mb and my conection is 1 mb05:40
MuhammadTahirbut usually i can download much faster than that05:40
=== dhodgkin_ is now known as Guest4848
sacarlsonxion: and iso is not an application it is a file that is read by an app so ?05:41
MuhammadTahirin abt 30 to 35 minutes its about 20 % done05:41
Xionsacarlson:) yes i use sudo to open nautilus,i mean gksu05:41
dualcoreMuhammadTahir: are there other computers on the network downloading?05:41
ohsixJordan_U: one contrived and avoidable situation doesn't really convince, and practically speaking i can almost assure you that it will never come up in a scenario where i am assisting someone05:41
MuhammadTahirno05:41
sacarlsonxion: so you want even a sudo user to have to add a password?05:42
MuhammadTahiri have my own line05:42
Jordan_Uohsix: This is an official policy of #ubuntu, if you'd like to discuss it further please join #ubuntu-ops.05:42
Xionsacarlson:) acetoneiso is a app05:42
Xionyes05:42
Xionsacarlson:) i dont have user on my computer,but i share it sometimes05:42
sacarlsonxion: then you should modify your sudoer file so that this sudo user must add a password or not access at all05:42
MuhammadTahirif i try to download directly or through torent any thing i can download 20 mb in about 1 to 2 minutes05:42
sacarlsonxion: if it's ubuntu it must have a user to operate05:43
Xionsacarlson:) yes just me,05:44
MuhammadTahirthe same problem with update manager yesterday in 6 hours it downloaded only about 22 or some mb05:44
dualcoreMuhammadTahir: whats your bandwidth http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/05:44
sacarlsonxion: but you run as sudo all the time?05:44
ohsixJordan_U: this is a "what i will ever say in the future" policy, it's none of your business, you can tell people the perils of messing with your credentialss as root, not me; i don't suspect anyone but the strictest of cargo cult to just run everything with sudo either, the ssh thing is as contrived as it gets, and ssh could/should see who owns those credentials before it copies them05:44
playlastest ubuntu 11.04 alpha stable enough to use? itching to upgrade. (thanks for any feedback)05:45
Xionsacarlson:) i think so,i just use sudo at terminal05:45

ohsixJordan_U: note: you'd need to do "sudo ssh -X" for this to happen05:45

StarminnHow do I change the icon of a file?05:46
ohsixbbiab05:46
Jordan_Uohsix: This channel has guidelines, If you refuse to follow them I will have to remove you from the channel. I really don't want or expect it to come to that.05:46
ActionParsnipStarminn: right click it -> properties then then click the icon and change it05:46
bazhangStarminn, right click choose a new one or get a new theme set05:46
Xionsacarlson:) so theres nothing i can change in users and groups to block myself from som apps ?05:46
sacarlsonxion: maybe you should just move all the stuf you normaly run out of /usr/sbin and put them in /usr/bin so that you almost never need sudo?  then it will ask for a password when you really want it to05:46
ohsixJordan_U: i suspect you'll be informing me every time i make a faux pa, i'm confident even. as this isn't the first time, so all is well05:47
StarminnActionParsnip: Wow. Did not know that the image was actually a clickable button. :) Thanks.05:47
sacarlsonxion: sure there is but you keep bypassing it so what's the point05:47
DrkCodemanohsix: is ubuntu going to be able to handle 128bit architecture?05:47
ohsixDrkCodeman: that wont be ubuntu, and it won't be for 20 years, it's useless to speculate05:48
ActionParsnipStarminn: yeah man, works all over the place (really good for removable devices appearing on the deskto ;))05:48
ohsixlinux already has some targets with vliw, but not with huge address spaces05:48
DrkCodemanohsix: its already here... look up the new amd bulldozer...05:48
sacarlsonxion: you can make add another user called superduperuser and give him full rights and make your present user only access without a password what you want to normaly run without a password05:48
StarminnActionParsnip: Good idea. :) Although my removables don't appear on my Desktop, but duely noted. :) Never would have thought to click on the image.05:48
ActionParsnipDrkCodeman: as long as the kernel is compiled to use the addressing and any features in the CPU then sure05:48
ohsixDrkCodeman: i have a bridge for sale05:48
ohsixits best not to conflate the instruction size with the possible address space size05:49
Xionsacarlson:) so i need to open a gksu nautilus and move all from /usr/sbin  to usr/bin and notjing happend to the system?05:49
ActionParsnipStarminn: when I connect my phone, my phone appears on my desktop. I also got a pic of an my exact SD card which appears when I plug it in05:49
ohsixeven 32bit processors can have 40+ bits of address space05:49
sacarlsonxion: all?  I thought it was just one app?05:49
Jordan_Uohsix: Please join #ubuntu-ops.05:49

playandy, you can up up a level and right click the folder -> in menu select compress -> select your options -> all set05:53

ohsixbut if you just want to block the internet, lock down networkmanager & have no profiles to connect with05:57
ac7ssXion: or you could make a WEB group and make the browser programs group WEB and permission 550.05:57
sacarlsonxion: and give the boy his own user name and password05:57
ac7ssXion: and make sure he is not in the WEB group05:58
sacarlsonac7ss: xion: that sounds like it would work to me05:58
ActionParsnipXion: you can setup a proxy and setup filters for selected content05:58

glitchdok so i need some help again please06:04
ohsixac7ss: touch a file that exists only when it's running, and remove it when it's killed; then trying to start it again will find the file there and not start06:04
Flynnsevith: what's the a.out file?06:04
ohsixand put the pid in that file so you can check and see if it's really actually still running (so you can clean up if it isn't)06:05
sevithFlynn, Its just a simple overflow but ubuntu wont let me run it....:/06:05

sevithFlynn, You know whats stopping it?06:05
Flynnsevith: chmod +x the file??06:05
ohsixif you want it to start as its own user and only once like a regular service, it's more involved but you can do that too06:06
Flynnsevith: secondly how are you trying to run it?  sh ./File name   or    ./filename   ...after chmod'ing it?06:06
Andy-at-homehow do I compress everything in the current directory without taking the full filepath? when I extract the tar i get the structure from the old /var/www/currentdirectory/subdirectories instead of allfile/subdirectories06:06
sacarlsonac7ss: yes that's what I wanted also since for some reason the app didn't always start so I had a cron check it every hour and at boot06:06
sevithFlynn, chmod didnt help ./filename is how i am running it06:06

ac7ssAndy-at-home: to keep everything 'tar -c /DIRECTORY |gz >archive.gz' Does that sound right?06:18

Andy-at-home[06:12] sacarlson: Andy-at-home: that creates  a tar of a tar file06:19
Andy-at-homeare you trying to screw with me?06:20
BesogonAndy-at-home: you can use '--wildcards' option with 'exclude' options too06:20
FlynnAndy-at-home: wrong person sorry06:20
Andy-at-homedunno how its take more than 5 seconds to find this06:20
ac7ssandy-at-home: to compress the tar file you can use gz06:21
FlynnI got to say I'm loving emacs -nw in ubuntu just a little06:21
ohsixyou can also add z olol06:21
ohsixczvf06:21
sacarlsonAndy-at-home: yes that might cause recusion so maybe beter to be one dir back of where you start.  tar cvf tarfile.tar ./path/to/compress06:21
ohsixbut by the time you're throwing this many letters around, it's probably best to read the manual06:21

ac7ssscarlson: I don't think tar compresses without the z option.06:22
FlynnAndy-at-home: your trying to extract a compressed file??  if you have a gui running, why not a little good oh' right clicking?06:22
boomtntis there a different between cvf and czvf?06:22
ohsixboota2: it compresses the output with gzip when z is in there06:22
BesogonAndy-at-home: tar don't compress files actually. It make only a 'container' for them/ No compress files you should use filters gnuzip for example06:22
Flynnboomtnt: z is another argument added to the equation06:23

natetI'm having a problem setting up dual booting on my computer.06:26
ActionParsnipwizardken: i'd ask in ##hardware06:26
wizardkenthanks06:26
natetI had a windows 7 install on /dev/sdb, and installed ubuntu on /dev/sda06:26
natetGrub doesn't see the windows partition.06:26
sacarlsonac7ss: true I like z that's what I normally use, and I tested it just now and I can do it with tar cvzf backup.gz .  from within the dir seems to still work with the "." at the end06:27
ActionParsnipnatet: try: sudo apt-get -y install os-prober; sudo os-prober; sudo update-grub06:27
dpn`howdy, anyone know why commands like <super>s wouldn't be working for me in compiz?06:27
ActionParsnipdpn`: its not defined as a shortcut in any of your active plugins06:27
dpn`ActionParsnip, well actually super-s does something weird with the shutdown button in lynx... so i changed it to super-x in my plugin and it still isn't working :(06:28
Flynnnatet: gparted is great for partitioning while dualbooting in my experience the easy way.  grub will have to be fixed if installing windows on a already linux machine06:28
Besogondpn`: you can tune compize for your taste06:28
natetNo love.06:28
dpn`Well i've set up the keyboard shortcut and it's not working :)06:28
natetFlynn: Windows was installed first.06:28
natetos-prober was already installed.06:28
ActionParsnipnatet: does it show windows in the final output?06:28
natetnope06:29
ActionParsnipnatet: thats why I used ; instead of &&06:29
Besogonnatet: May be you just haven't got Windows bootloader now06:29
natetBootloader should still exist on /dev/sdb06:29

ActionParsnipnatet: is the windows partition currently mounted?06:33
nimrod[A]sorry :s06:33
bazhangnimrod[A], what are the specs of said computer06:33
critical_maxac7ss, you can do a "1-liner"06:33
ac7ssFlynn sacarlson: just trying to command line a loop 'echo Ping; sleep 30'06:33
natetActionParsnip: it wasn't, but I mounted it and re-ran the os-prober and update-grub and still no dice.06:34
critical_maxac7ss:   for i in `cat myfile.txt`; do echo $i; done06:34
critical_maxno script file needed06:34
sacarlsonac7ss: ping will loop and you can provide the time interval06:34
critical_maxac7ss: tell us more about what kind of loop you need though06:34
ActionParsnipnatet: worth a shot06:35
ac7sscritical_max. thats pretty much it. I just want to repeat a command.06:35
sacarlsonac7ss: ping -i 30 google.com06:35
natetActionParsnip: Yeah.  I've been trying every half baked thing I could find in the forums.06:35
ActionParsnipnatet: thats all I know about gub (I don't dual boot so have zero issues with grub). Maybe others can contribute06:35
nimrod[A](bazhang): would it be ok if i pasted a link to the specifications?06:35
samuel__hey everyone , i would like to delete an nfts partition from my hdd and reformat it to ext. i have downloaded gparted, but unsure in how to do this ?06:35
ActionParsnipsacarlson: could add:  -c 4     to that too ;)06:36
bazhangnimrod[A], paste.ubuntu.com please if more than a single line06:36
nimrod[A]ok06:36
ActionParsnipsamuel__: ubuntu can do that on its own06:36
critical_maxac7ss: knowing more about what you're repeating would help specifically. There's also "watch [command]" to play with06:36
ac7sssacarlson: not actually pinging.06:36
sacarlsonac7ss: ActionParsnip: yes you can have it time out after a count -c06:36
natetActionParsnip: this is the first time I've had a problem dual booting.06:36
ActionParsnipsamuel__: you don't need to download anything special06:36
critical_maxac7ss: the use cases do vary a bit based on what you're running, not all apps will accept the same jiggery06:36
samuel__actionparsnip: Then how do i do this ?06:36
sacarlsonac7ss: not actually pinging?  be more specific06:37
ActionParsnipsamuel__: under system you will see gparted. As long as the ntfs partition is unmounted, you can do what you like with it06:37
mungo-metacity --replace doesn't work for me06:37
ac7ss'cpufreq-info -c1|grep 'governor"'|sed 's/.* "//;s/".*//06:37
critical_maxac7ss: try "watch 10 'yourbigstringofcommands' "06:38
ac7ssis that more specific?06:38
critical_maxac7ss: yes that helps :)06:38
critical_maxac7ss: watch should probably cover that06:38
samuel__actionparsnip: alright , gparted is open , selected the hdd, now do i just right click and unmount my nfts partition ?06:38
sacarlsonac7ss: closer and you want to loop on what value?06:38
ac7ssI just want to repeat it after a ';sleep'06:39
ActionParsnipsamuel__: yes, when you delete the partition it will destroy the data so make sure you have copied off all you need06:39
Besogonnatet: Something that may help06:39

samuel__Actionparsnip: ok , i have unmounted , should i delete it , or just "format to"06:40
ActionParsnipsamuel__: indeed06:40
critical_maxac7ss, i couldn't get your pipe chain to run but try fleshing it out inside a 1-liner like the one I just pasted06:40

hid3Kimmen: it gives this: aplay: device_list:207: no soundcards found...06:41
critical_maxac7ss: wait a second, i've got mixed up :P just put your command in... or just run it with "watch" without the loop surrounding, watch automatically sleeps06:41
nimrod[A]the pc is kind of outdated which is why i want to put ubuntu on it06:41

the_5th_wheelHowdy. I just upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04 By means of a fresh install. I use LTSP. And the upgraded terminals seem much slower. I noticed that my ltsp images arelike 600mb. Is that normal? It seems overly large06:44
samuel__actionparsnip: ok i have formatted it , now do i have to mount it again to see it in "my computer" ?06:44
critical_maxac7ss: one more caution: you should usually build your loop with "echo" to show your intended command strings, before letting it loose06:44
ActionParsnipsamuel__: it should appear in the places menu, if you add it in /etc/fstab it will mount at boot06:44
hid3ActionParsnip: just a minute06:44
critical_maxac7ss: ex. while 1; do echo "rm -rf allmystuff"; done     will keep you safer before running the actual command...06:45
critical_maxac7ss: kind of a debugging method i guess06:45
ohsixtheres also saferm, which will change rm to an alternative that will do extra checking of paths06:45
critical_maxohsix: i think he's just parsing cpufreq-info output06:46
ac7sscritical_max: too many quotes nested in there to escape easily. and it was just a grep/sed.06:46
definityOi06:46
critical_maxac7ss: yeah, not so critical with that sort of thing, but you'll want to use it for potentially destructive commands eventually down the road.06:46
ohsixcritical_max: i never miss an opportunity to mention safe-rm :]06:46
bazhangnimrod[A], looks good, more ram would be better obviously; could you boot the live cd and run lspci for the network cards?06:46
critical_maxohsix: absolutely, i'm checking it out now :)06:46
ActionParsnipohsix: and not using force06:46

bazhangdefinity, no, its a command you run to see processes in the terminal06:48
sacarlsonac7ss: I tried while [1]; do sleep 1; done but fails06:48
definityyeah but i asked what is the theam/ window manager running? do u know?06:49
grindcrushertry while true; etc.06:49
critical_maxsacarlson: you have to use spaces in the conditionals if you use that syntax06:49
critical_maxsacarlson:  like [ 1 ]06:49
ac7sssacarlson: try 'while : ;do echo 1;sleep;done06:49
sacarlsoncritical_max: cool I'll try that06:49
critical_maxsacarlson: I like "while 1" myself for a 1-liner, less typing06:51
ac7ssok, easy one now: how do you echo a line up on the screen?06:51
sacarlsonac7ss: critical_max; yes this works while [ 1 ] ; do echo test; sleep 2 ; done06:51
critical_maxac7ss: by line up do you mean repeat the last commadn entered?06:51
ac7ssLike Critical_Max: while :06:51
critical_maxac7ss: i don't get your question i'm afraid.06:52
ac7ssCritical_Max: no I want to move the cursor point up the screen by 106:53
critical_maxac7ss, you want to print an empty line? "echo"06:53
critical_maxac7ss, still not following you properly06:54
critical_maxac7ss, the cursor in bash is just a text entry point, if you're trying to do something like select text you need to specify that.06:54
sacarlsoncritical_max: I just tested with while 1; do echo test; sleep 2 ; done  and it fails06:55
ac7ssCritical_Max: I want to move the cursor up. so the next echo is on top of the last line.06:55
gusgI'd like to make my display dimmer. Where can I adjust things like gamma, brightness, and contrast?06:55

bazhangnimrod[A], did you md5 the iso? burn at low speed, and do the disk integrity check? the alternate cd might work if you  have done all those things and still have issues07:00
charlosmy friend want see me but I dont know where is click on call webcam in pidgin  ?07:00
nimrod[A]ive done the alt cd before07:01
ac7ssI think I will stay with clear07:01
ActionParsnipcharlos: maybe there is a setting in pidgin to configure video before it will work...07:01
nimrod[A]the alt cd will install but it wont boot at all07:01
Besogoncharlos: I think Pidgin don't support webcam07:01
sacarlsonac7ss: well it will be the only thing running in that term so I guess the clear should work as good as any07:01

charlospidgin for yahoo  and msn07:02
bazhangnimrod[A], well you could always install ubuntu-desktop package on top of the server install, but its odd that none of the other options are working07:02
nimrod[A]well07:02
ActionParsnipcharlos: you may need to use gyache then.07:02
nimrod[A]the server wont even boot for me to be able to do so07:02

charlosActionParsnip> privat me07:03
nimrod[A]ivedone this with Debian5, kubuntu, and others, all do the same thing, i just figured i'd rekindle the flame lol07:04
critical_maxac7ss, i will build a 'watch' command that does what you want in the simplest fashion07:04
ac7sscritical_max: it grabs the governor from the full text. try the command without the grep.07:04
critical_maxok, so for example "The governor "ondemand" ..." you're looking for "ondemand" in that case?07:04

arvutcritical_max: now that I can understand. but try to find a linux distro that will run on a machine with 2mb ram, 20mb hdd & a "superfast cpu" (speed not specified in bios)07:14
critical_maxarvut, hmm... PC/M? :)07:15
Kimmenthen it is a 8-20MHz 386 ;)07:15
Kimmenpossibly :P07:15
critical_maxi'd rock the LOGO Turtle all over that box.07:15
ac7ssThinking of scrapping the machine and using the monitor as an aux screen.07:15

arvutlolcat: who said anything about a sandy bridge mobo? =P07:17
critical_maxarvut, woah, rare bear... 68000?  and now we are well off topic :)07:17
ac7sscritical_max: Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.07:17
lolcatarvut: It is the only fast cpu out there07:17
arvutcritical_max: #offtopic made no sense so I came here, looks like no help is needed so lets continue ;)07:18
critical_maxhaha07:18
arvutlolcat, you missed the "not specified in bios" part, did ya?07:18
critical_maxwell if it's a mac clone, it doesn't have BIOS07:19
critical_maxarvut, hell it doesn't even have OpenFirmware yet...07:19
arvutbios actually says "superfast cpu" or something like that..07:19
arvutso I can't be sure its a 38607:19
lolcatarvut: Bios doesnt specify how fast the sandy is07:20
critical_maxarvut, if it's a mac clone it's definitely a motorola 68k family, and at 2mb likely the 6800007:20
ac7ssThere are so many commands in linux, it is very helpful to ask around here.07:20
arvutlolcat, you make me l0l >.> its in the bios of a machine from the 80's!07:20
critical_maxarvut, if it's an apple II clone it depends on what model they are cloning, i don't remember the main apple II chip family07:20
lolcatarvut: Sandy Bridge isn't that old07:21
arvutI think its more of a pc clone, since it came with M$Ð0$ 5.007:21
critical_maxac7ss, there sure are, but you can take all this bash trix right to Redhat now if you need to and most of it to Mac OS X :) that's the beauty of it07:21
Kimmenlolcat: that's why he had to mod it to be able to run 2MB RAM07:21
critical_maxarvut, gotcha, "PC compatible"... does it have a Turbo Button?!07:22
lolcatarvut: There is NO fast cpu's from '8007:22

critical_maxnikkii, best way is to find out what user/group your webserver is running as. Set ownership of that directory to match, then allow user to write to it07:35
Andy-at-homeguys, I receiving the error 'Your defined data root directory, /var/webappdata1/, is not writable. Please make the directory if it does not exist, or give ownership of the directory to the web server user if it does.'07:35
Andy-at-homein the top program I have two users (root and apache) that run httpd07:35
ejvarvut: pardon?07:35
Andy-at-homei used chmod -R 777 webappdata1 and chown -R apache webappdata1 but I'm still receiving the error07:35

sacarlsonAndy-at-home: strange I thought the default apache install was user www-data07:37

StarminnActionParsnip: Ah, perfect.07:39
Karen_mcritical_max, it is a fast machine.. I just wanted a persistent USB install.. :(07:39
maxillusionistshirokko what is the port used for smb07:39
Karen_mwith the live usb iso, it loads in seconds07:39
maxillusionistthe port no07:40
Karen_mhellslinger, how do you see it?07:40
shirokkomaxillusionist: I used the default one07:40
maxillusionistthen make a bash script to search for live hosts07:40
maxillusionisteasy07:40
ActionParsnipshirokko: shares don't have IPs. The host does and the shares are managed by samba which runs on a port07:40
sacarlsonshirokko: there must be easier ways but for one to monitor with wireshark to see what trafic it comes from if you can't just get the ip from the windows box itself07:40
critical_maxKaren_m, ok, it's probably some sort of driver issue. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the persistent installations. perhaps someone who is can be of assistance.07:40
maxillusionistthen it might show live hosts isn't it07:40
shirokkoActionParsnip: yeah, I need the hosts ip07:41
Jordan_UKaren_m: How large is the USB drive?07:41
hellslingerKaren_m, I forget, does the grub bootmenu appear when you attempt to boot?07:41
Karen_m4GB07:41
Karen_mhellslinger, it auto-boots .. I think it does display but very quick07:41
maxillusionistsacarlson you use wireshark07:42
maxillusionisthacker boy07:42
sacarlsonmaxillusionist: yes07:42
Jordan_UKaren_m: That's enough for a normal install, which I prefer to a persistant Live install.07:42
critical_maxshirokko, if you want to find the port use "sudo netstat -plutn|grep smb"07:42
ActionParsnipshirokko: if you are connected to a share you can run: mount  a07:42
Karen_mJordan_U, how do you install to the USB drive?07:42
critical_maxshirokko, that command will also show you what IP smbd is bound to (Likely binding to ALL on the interface, indicated by :::[port])07:43
hellslingerKaren_m, if you can get it to pause when the boot options appear, press ctrl-x (if I'm not mistaken) on the line of boot and remove the "quiet" and "splash" options from the kernel line07:43
JeeM0edErrI wanne Suck All Boys07:43
ActionParsnipSorry: mount     and see the hostname, dig the hostname to see the IP07:43
sacarlsonmaxillusionist: in this case maybe sudo netstat -pant would be better for shirokko ?07:43
critical_maxsacarlson, ahh i missed that shirokko is on the client side...whoops!07:44
Jordan_UKaren_m: Easiest way is to boot from a LiveCD or another LiveUSB and do a normal install. If you have enough RAM (> 1GiB) you can also install from the same USB you booted from, but that's more difficult.07:44
Karen_mJordan_U, I would need to install from the USB i'm running on.  I do not have a cdrom in the machine07:45
Karen_mand I only have 1 thumbdrive07:45
shirokkomaxillusionist: got it, thanks07:45

Andy-at-homethanks, it was what I thought08:09

azizLIGHTSi see yes you are right08:52
critical_maxMurphant, the important thing is to get the system to the "known good", albeit non-accelerated state, then you can easily follow any directions to install the proper driver once identified. All those third party nvidia command line apps are relics nowadays. At most the package installation should handle all the running of that config08:52
critical_maxYou're there, so you should be good to go once you identify the driver08:53
critical_maxMurphant, also check into "envy" perhaps08:53

critical_maxoh? shows how long since I had these problems ><08:54

hoseinIf I remove an installed package from ubuntu software center, should I download it again? can I keep its deb for later use?09:23

ahoxHi, my dkms_autobuild fails with a make.log error of /var/lib/dkms/virtualbox-ose/3.2.8/build/include/iprt/types.h:97: fatal error: linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory. How do I install this file?09:23
xardas008hosein, i think that he will keep the dep in some temp folder09:23
critical_maxMurphant: see above for directions for upgrading to 10.10, and subsequently for 11.04 if the problem isn't fixed09:24
xardas008sudo apt-get install autoconf09:24
critical_maxmurphant, you'll want to have that ready for the 11.04 release anyway, since you can't skip releases when upgrading09:24
ahoxI am running maverick, but with a 2.6.38 kernel from the ppa09:24

xardas008ahox, that could be the problem. I tried the same with another kernel then the one previously installed. It has something to do with dkms09:25

critical_maxhosein, all your debs are cached in /var/cache/apt/archives if you are curious to see what's there09:26
bullgard4Why does '~$ sudo netstat -tunap' output the name of the process #985 as "0", while '~ps aux' outputs "dictd" for it?09:27
ahoxI assume that the autoconf.h is part of the linux kernel. It actually exist in the header package, in he directory /usr/src/linux-headers-<version>/include/generated09:27
ac7ssandy-at-home: was that what you needed?09:27
critical_maxhosein, so if the deb is still there, and still current, the next time you install the package Ubuntu will not get it from the net, but from the cache locally09:28
bluumhosein: do this experiment. install some package, uninstall it, pull the network plug, try to install again09:28
critical_maxbluum, i guarantee following that sequence will take it from the cache for the 2nd install09:29

hoseinbluum,: I tested it. It installed locally from cache. but the configuration wizard I saw at the first installation, did not appear. why?09:32
critical_maxhosein, that's because you still had the config from last time (probably in ~/.someapp-config09:32
bullgard4critical_max: '~$ sudo netstat -tunap' output the name of the process #985 as "0", while '~ps aux' outputs "dictd" for it? http://paste.ubuntu.com/584198/09:33
bluumhosein: you might have the option to either "uninstall" or to "prune" a package. pruning deletes the configuration.09:34
hoseincritical_max: It is  zend server wrapper for phpMyAdmin, I dont know where it is installed?09:34
critical_maxhosein: neither do I, sorry.09:35
critical_maxbullgard4, and the ps output?09:35
critical_maxI mean the netstat output09:35
critical_maxhosein: you can use "apt-get purge somepackage" instead of apt-get remove , to remove config09:37
critical_maxhosein: that should offer the config wizard next time you install it.09:37
puck1Sorry I had to teach a class.  critical_max, I have looked at the error log but don't really know what to look for.  Any clues?09:38

critical_maxpuck1, what were we looking at again?09:39
hoseincritical_max: without removing its .deb from chache?09:39
critical_maxMurphant, yeah it's something to leave overnight :)09:39
critical_maxhosein: correct09:39
critical_maxhosein: you never have to touch that cache. you can clear it if you want to save drive space for some reason. apt-get clean, apt-get autoclean  are different ways to clean it, look at the docs for details.09:40
puck1We have ubuntu 10.04 and are having a problem with a Xerox Phaser 6280DN printer connected via port 9100.  Everything seems to print fine except large pdfs we keep getting messages like /usr/lib/cups/filter/cpdftocps failed"09:40
critical_maxpuck1, Oh. I don't know what to look for either, but anything you DO find should be googled :) and that's probably where the relevant errors would be - in the cups error log09:41
bullgard4critical_max: This was the output of '~$ ps aux | grep 985'. --09:41
critical_maxpuck1, I think I've had to go to that log exactly once in my life and it did give some kind of helpful clue. Good luck!09:41

jonathandadeNot a great idea. The state it was in was uninterruptible sleep (usually IO). That means it might be waiting on disk or memory, but if oyu understnad that this may leave your system irretrievably broken then the command in a shell would be kill -9 <PID of dpkg and any other processes you need to kill>. That will forceably remove it from memory if that can be done. You'll need to sudo it, but be warned this may well kill your w10:02

critical_maxthanks, checking10:36
reliabilitydbugger_: needs to be offline... :-/10:36
codemagicianv_v, i  like to install packages from Ubuntu center preferably10:37
m_critical_max: cheers!10:37
codemagicianv_v, stick to the beaten track10:37
maxillusionistpdf readers for ubuntu10:37
v_vcodemagician: that's ok, why should it be ubuntu-specific10:37
dbugger_reliability, doesnt it have appcache?10:37
codemagicianv_v, i mean in terms of packaging10:37
agrabis it possible to install several distros on one usb?10:37
m_critical_max: card inserted when run those commands10:37
v_vcodemagician: it doesn't matter10:37
erUSULmaxillusionist: the default document viewer does not work for you ?10:37
codemagicianv_v, when I click youtube im offered a link to "downed it from adobe"10:37
reliabilitydbugger_: appcache means i can run google apps offline?10:38
paurunow how can i install the previous firefox that i had?10:38
critical_maxm_, darn, i don't see your gadget at ALL. Oh. Try this: "tail -f /var/log/dmesg" and take the card in and out.10:38
codemagicianv_v, but remember it 'should' already be installed10:38
maxillusionistnop erUSUL i read that reliability was saying something like that10:38
erUSULcodemagician: install ubuntu-restricted-extras package? it incudes flahs an many other usefull things10:38
v_vcodemagician: put the flash plugin file to .mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so10:38
codemagicianv_v, so it must be an issue with referencing it10:38
v_vcodemagician: put the flash plugin file to ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so10:38
dbugger_reliability, if I can access Gmail offline, maybe you can access also google docs offline10:38
critical_maxm_ one thing i have done to troubleshoot that kind of problem is google for "HP 2510 card reader linux" or whatever my EXACT model of PC is. Other people with the same problem are usually found. If your PC is not a custom build, that might help./10:38

codemagicianerUSUL, shall I do sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras ?10:39
m_critical_max: what does thjis command?10:39
critical_maxm_ looking at dmesg is a good way to see if ANYTHING happens and what devices it happens to10:39
sl33k_this error was encountered when i download eclipse? dpkg: failed to write status record about `libslf4j-java' to `/var/lib/dpkg/status': No space left on device10:39
maxillusionistdbugger what does that mean??10:39
critical_maxsl33k_, lol your drive is full10:39
erUSULcodemagician: that should work. or you can use ubuntu software center10:39
critical_maxsl33k_, your machine still works because it reserves a few % for the system for just this case10:40
critical_maxsl33k_, just delete some files before continuing the install10:40
charloshello again10:40
v_vsl33k_: you can sudo apt-get autoclean to remove the old packages10:40
charlosthat name channel for ircd-ircu help  ?10:41
codemagicianerUSUL, it says its downloading .exe files?10:41
paurucritical_max, Hey max, how can i install my previous ff?10:41
antoine__join #osp10:41
critical_maxm_ you can also just run "dmesg" for a display of all the recent messages, but tailing the log allows you realtime10:41
v_vcodemagician: does it work ?10:41
erUSULcodemagician: just wait for it to finish10:41
critical_maxpauru: by removing the PPA repository in software center, but why on earth would you want to go back? addons?10:41
codemagicianerUSUL, i guess those are like zip files?10:41
erUSULcodemagician: yes10:41

bullgard4What package is the Disk Mounter applet associated with (in order to report a bug)?10:42
v_vrandy2009: because the ownser is not root10:42
codemagicianerUSUL, it made no different to FF plugins10:42
v_vrandy2009: when you run it, the effective user is nagios10:42
critical_maxv_v yeah that one usually frees up a ton of space if a machine is THAT crufty..10:42
sl33k_critical_max, v_v: dpkg was interrupted during autoclean. What could i do now?10:42
v_vrandy2009: not root as you expected10:42
critical_maxsl33k_, you just have to delete one of your own user files, like a movie or music *cough*10:42
v_vcritical_max: :)10:42
v_vsl33k_: any error messages ?10:43
critical_maxsl33k_, the apt-get autoclean process was trying to clear up the same thing that led to the previous error, is why that didn't work10:43

charlosthat name channel for ircd-ircu help  ?10:44
randy2009thnx10:44
v_vsl33k_: can you give me a message of 'df -h'10:44
charloshey again10:44
v_vrandy2009: np10:44
critical_max m_ so that is counting the period of time that you inserted a flash card into the reader, correct?10:44
charloswhat do u say me ?10:44
critical_maxm_ not for flash readers typically; there is "ndiswrapper" for Windows wireless drivers, from the bad old days when native Linux support was rarer10:45
critical_maxm_ the next step is really to identify the card reader physically, get inside the case if you have to10:45
m_critical_max: card was inside when run it10:45
codemagicianerUSUL, only shockwave flash from Gnash10:45
v_vsl33k_: if the autoclean doesn't work, you can just cd '/var/cache/apt/archives' and remove the deb files10:45
randy2009v_v: hehe, i need to set setuid agian if i change owner, nice (good security)10:45
v_vrandy2009: yeah,10:45
critical_maxm_ you need to run tail -f /var/log/dmesg *while* removing and then inserting your flash card, please10:45
erUSULcodemagician: uninstall gnash10:45
vietredhi, how to make mail (in indicator applet) recognize thunderbird?10:46
critical_maxm_ that will show us any related messages that are generated10:46
sl33k_v_v: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/358212/10:46
m_critical_max: ok. doing it now10:46
critical_maxm_ also we still don't know what your model of PC is, often you can google the card reader model from there10:46
critical_maxand then google "linux card reader [my model of PC]" and find other people with same problem and the solution if it exists.10:47
v_vsl33k_: are you working on a live cd ?10:47
critical_maxor "linux [my model of card reader]"10:47
codemagicianerUSUL, it now shows Shockwave Flash 10.2 r15210:47
erUSULcodemagician: good10:47
codemagicianerUSUL, its working10:47
erUSUL!yay | codemagician10:47

littlegreenHey guys! I'm having trouble sharing my HP printer with windows users.... it's pretty much already set-up and shared, they just don't see it...10:47
critical_maxsl33k_, it looks like your wubi partition is full, is it that 6.5G loopback correct?10:48
jorisrm: cannot remove `/usr/sbin/sshd': Operation not permitted10:48
joris-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 290K 2008-05-14 16:39 /usr/sbin/sshd10:48
joriswtf?10:48
codemagicianerUSUL, so I guess you can't have gnash and adobe side by side?10:48
m_critical_max: same thing.  it's hp mini 110-3030nr10:48
v_vsl33k_: the root partition is full. can you release some space ?10:48
critical_maxsl33k_, resizing wubi partition is not practical, i have looked into that extensively. you need to uninstall wubi and reinstall with a larger partition size, it is much much faster than resizing10:48
erUSULcodemagician: no10:48
critical_maxbeen there, done that10:48
critical_maxm_ ok now we're getting somewhere :) one sec10:48
m_critical_max: it seems that it's only for win10:49
codemagicianerUSUL, I switched before because Adobe kept crashing10:49
v_vjoris: do you have a proper permission ?10:49
v_vjoris: like, are you root ?10:49
jorisi am root yes.10:49
critical_maxsl33k_, but you should still be able to remove something from your home directory under wubi for right now... to fix it10:49
sl33k_critical_max: yea10:49
v_vjoris: if you just want to reinstall sshd , try apt-get purge openssh-server10:50
littlegreenany ideas anybody?10:50
critical_maxm_ OK according to softpedia, you have a Realtek USB 2.0 brand card reader10:50
jorisv_v: Package openssh-server is not installed, so not removed10:50
sl33k_v_v: i am in archives directory now, how could i remove deb packages from here?10:50
v_vjoris: did you try the 'purge' ?10:50
jorisv_v: Yes, it gives me the said output10:50
v_vsl33k_: a simple way. sudo rm *deb10:50
v_vsl33k_: :)10:50
critical_maxm_ the latest windows driver is "6.1.7600.48"10:50
m_critical_max: correct10:51
v_vjoris: ps -ef | grep sshd10:51
erUSULsl33k_: sudo apt-get clean10:51
jorisv_v: nussing10:51
erUSULsl33k_: do not go around doing "sudo rm" in system directories10:51
paurucritical_max, i removed the ppas and reloaded, but i can still see firefox 4 in synaptic10:51

littlegreenerUSUL, do you think upgrading my system might resolve my printer-sharing related problem in any way?10:53
critical_maxsl33k_, yeah, that's tiny, you want at least 10-15GB even for a decent test installation10:53
v_vjoris: ok, i guess you don'y10:53
v_vjoris: ok, i guess you don't10:53

jorisv_v: I can execute /usr/bin/sshd just fine. It says /etc/sshd_config is missing, which it is.10:58
ikoniaprobabably the file is in use10:58
jorisv_v: I just can't rename or delete it10:58

ikoniajoris: run fuser against it11:00
jorisroot@sol:/usr/sbin# fuser sshd11:00
jorisroot@sol:/usr/sbin#11:00
critical_maxsl33k_, in /home/sleek/Downloads or /home/sleek/Desktop are likely places to find something you could delete for now. But really. You will just run into this problem again tomorrow, and the next day, etc, and you should really  just uninstall wubi and reinstall it. Takes a matter of 10 minutes.11:00
ikoniajoris: use the full path, fuser /usr/sbin/sshd11:00
ikoniajoris: also why is your update not going to the current hardy version11:00
jorisno output11:00
sl33k_critical_max: in the file system, i see usr, bin, var. those kind of directories11:00
jorisI've done numerous apt-get updates11:01

Us3r_Unfriendlyi remember using wubi...what a horrible experience11:01
critical_maxsl33k_, /home/youruser  not there i take it?11:01

sl33k_critical_max: ya found it11:01
jorisv_v: securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)11:02
critical_maxsl33k_, desktop / downloads / documents check for stuff you can remove11:02
ikoniajoris: you showed me the package version it was going to update to, and I know the current version11:02
critical_maxsl33k_, and get used to the idea of reinstalling. take notes on what you installed first if you like.11:02
EClaessonI accidentaly removed the shut down menu from the top panel (gnome). The menu with Shut down, restart, hibernate, log out/change user and such. How can i get it back? I can't find it in the Add To Panel window11:02
jorisikonia: ic11:02
v_vjoris: the /usr/sbin partition  , is it mount readonly ?11:02
critical_maxsl33k_, so extra apps can be restored quickly with the new install11:02
ikoniav_v: excellent call11:02
jorisv_v: I don't have such a partition afaik11:02
ikoniayou must have a partition it's mounted off11:03

critical_maxUs3r_Unfriendly, All the virtual machine controllers can do it, and my impression was they were doing loopback too. I could be wrong on that...11:04

jorisrm: cannot remove `/usr/sbin/sshd': Operation not permitted11:04
critical_maxsl33k_, I see, you deleted the wubi installer already?11:04

lucid_jHi, how could I use a transparent theme on Ubuntu 10.04? I have nto made any changes on WM, so I am using just compiz.11:13
critical_maxjoris: that is a 3 year old version of sshd and might have been one of the ones vulnerable to a serious exploit.11:13
joriscritical_max: I would gladly update it, if I could install it11:13
arand_dyd I think you might get a problem using relative paths in a launcher...11:13
jjpjoris: that's really weird: your ssh server version appears to be compiled for debian / ubuntu, but the pkg is not recorded as installed in your database11:14
jorisjjp: I've removed the apt package an hour ago, and did a apt-get clean too11:14
Us3r_Unfriendlylucid_j: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHg5E3nh6Rs&hd=111:14

critical_maxjoris: i'm still looking for the proper md5sum for that version11:15
critical_maxjoris: the fact it doesn't show in the package manger as jjp said, is really sketchy11:15
critical_max777 is REALLY sketchy11:15
lucid_jUs3r_Unfiendly: That's not transparent. It's  just transparency on terminal backgound..11:15
dydarand_: if i do that it gives an error of path not found cause it tries to go /home/user/\\ip\d$11:16
Us3r_Unfriendlylucid_j: ccsm11:16
critical_maxjoris: you might want to start looking at things like ~/.bash_history for all your users. sloppy hackers don't cover their traces well. might find quick evidence of compromise. might not.11:16

jorisjjp: http://hoorayforinternet.com/sshd11:21
critical_maxjoris: not trying to be alarmist at all. but at the LEAST you need to disconnect the machine from the internet to further analyze it.11:21
dyddon't know why but it had to be nautilus "/media/E25C67D55C67A351/Documents and Settings/user.domain/Desktop/"11:21

dydfail this is to local hd :||11:21
critical_maxjoris: from everything you said it's been rooted, and I bet you can confirm that, but you need to reduce your liability by disconnecting it so the organized criminals that owned it don't get to use it11:21
critical_maxjoris: do you have hands on site or no11:21

ikoniasl33k_: please stop asking and wait for a response11:24
sl33k_my bad11:24
critical_maxsl33k_, I answered that question in detail. You cannot resize the partition without MUCH more work than to simply uninstall and reinstall. It is a major flaw in WUBI.11:24
MrGoodkatikonia: there is only an import function11:24
ikoniaMrGoodkat: how odd, if there is an import option, you'd suspect an export option too11:25

Us3r_Unfriendlylucid_j: http://img84.imageshack.us/i/screenshot1qi.png/ http://img833.imageshack.us/i/screenshotmlm.png/11:26
critical_maxsl33k_, it lets you choose the install size for WUBI when you install11:26
critical_maxsl33k_, just pick something like 15 or 20 gigs :)11:26
jjpjoris: what's output of ldd /usr/sbin/sshd ?11:27

On kubuntu page it said it is not spported but on the ubuntu page it is mentioned that it is still supported.  I want to install the restricted extra - meaning i want to have the adobe flash. Should i upgrade all the way to 9.10 or i can keep on running Hardy Heron ?12:03
jribkmanzoor: you should upgrade to at least 10.04 as ubuntu 8.04 is only supported until april of this year12:04
xardas008kmanzoor, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/12:04

xardas008at the bottom of the page is a list of the current releases and how long they are supported (8.04 until april 2011, server until 2013)12:05
Picikmanzoor, jrib: 8.04 is only supported on the desktop up until April, but the server packages have another 2 years of support.  Additionally, I don't think Kubuntu was granted LTS status for that release, I could be wrong though,.12:05
icerootkmanzoor: kubuntu is not supported (only packages which doesnt belong to kde), ubuntu is supported until 2011, the server edition is supported until 2013, kubuntu was only supported until 201012:05

nathan42100Hi gues, I have an urgent problem. We have a bash script that mounts an nfs share, rsyncs some files, then unmounts the script (simplified). Originally, the mount point was backup.rrc.neu.edu:/share/customer_data/active12:27
dean[w]I just uninstalled compiz on ubuntu 10.10 x64 and was left with no window manager. I installed xfwm4 but now in google chrome  my button layout icons (close, minimize etc.) are in the top left instead of right. Chrome is the only program exhibiting this behaviour. Suggestions?12:27
nathan42100after a firmware upgrade to the QNAP nas, the mount point was somehow changed so the correct point is backup.rrc.neu.edu:/customer_data/active12:27
blackguard-[TK]D-Fender : i made a partition as ext4 from the partition program witch i cant recall the name, its on the live cd12:28
blackguard-[TK]D-Fender then i reentered the installation and i am getting the same message12:28
nathan42100backup.rrc.neu.edu:/share.... now mounts the wrong point, but if you unmount and remount, it works fine (I had put a symlink in there for compatibility reasons)12:28
nathan42100I  need it to work on the first time12:28
nathan42100not the second12:28
[TK]D-Fenderblackguard-: Yes, and in the same dialog box that you tell it the File System type is a box to enter the MOUNT POINT12:28

jorisI'm trying to remember the name of something that was installed before, something similar to selinux. xshield? xarms?13:16
ohsixdyd: there really isn't one, that's just ui to wrap gio/gvfs, and to work with your keyring13:16
Bhavesh_A_P Linux type like ubuntu,kununtu,redhat,..... has same kernal ?13:16
Ja23I am working on expanding two partitions and shrinking a third, I can't seem to expand my Windows partition, does anyone know why?13:16
_antantwell I've got a desktop now13:17
dydi have to connect to a remote HD on windows with admin privileges, something like c$13:17
ruanBhavesh_A_P: they all use the linux kernel, yes13:17
sipiorjoris: apparmor, perhaps?13:17
ohsix_antant: now you can remove the nvidia driver :D13:17
Ja23The linux one worked fine, but the windows one doesn't give me the option13:17
dydbut i want to script that so i can put the code on the panel13:17
jorissipior: thanks, that's it. is apparmor something that could set immutable on /usr/sbin/sshd ?13:17
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 on a mobile device, while retaining my normal options in the main session and the configuration files. Is this possible, and if yes, how?13:17
_antantremove the nvidia driver??13:17
dydso should be something like "smb ip share user password", i guess13:18
ruanBhavesh_A_P: note that linux is a kernel, and those are operating systems _based_ on the linux kernel13:18
_antantohsix: Why would I remove the nvidia driver?13:18
ohsixoh, nevermind; other way around13:18
ruanJa23: what tool are you using to do this?13:18
Ja23Gparted!13:18
Ja23=)13:18
ruanhmm. so you can't resize the ntfs partition?13:19
Ja23Yeahhh13:19
_antantdo I have to install the vdpau drivers seperately?13:19
ohsixno clue13:19
Ja23The unallocated space is at the beginning of /dev/sda313:19
Ja23the one i want to expand is /dev/sda213:20
ruanJa23: is the partition currently mounted?13:20
brontosaurusrex_antant: what drivers? no13:20
Ja23ohh, hm, how do i check?13:20
Ja23I'm running a live CD btw13:20

r0fs3ck5user1_, it's called clustering.13:22
edbianuser1_, You can x forward which would only appear to make that happen, or a NFS, or yes, clustering13:22
zvacetJa23:  strange you should be able to resize it13:22
kmanzoori started the upgrade from Hardy to Karmic.13:23
Ja23What does the key symbol mean?13:23
Bhavesh_A_P<ruan>:means Linux is not operating system ?13:23
ruanJa23: it means that the partition is currently mounted13:23
ruanBhavesh_A_P: no, linux is not an operating system13:23

NielsMknwith a good gui interface?13:25

r0fs3ck5can be done with ubuntu, but I haven't tried.13:27
ruan!mount | sl33k_13:27
ubottusl33k_: mount is used to attach devices to directories. See also https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mount13:27
decameroncan anyone help with a wpa2 problem?13:27
Bhavesh_A_P<ruan>: i.e. Ubuntu linux provider built own kernal and use in it. and say we are Linux provider..13:27
zvacetBhavesh_A_P:  they don't use their own kernel but they can adjust existing one13:27

willy_1977sl33k_, so are you trying to install ubuntu onto a new drive?13:30
sl33k_ruan, willy_1977: i have a newly installed ubuntu, what will i need? there are some options on help.ubuntu, mount windows and auto mount? what do i have to know?13:31
Ja23The yellow one second in is the Windows partition that doesn't have a key and won't grow13:31
MadCarburetorHello13:31
willy_1977sl33k_, ok so you're on ubuntu and you want to mount a windows partition?13:31
ruansl33k_: the mount command is built in, and it should work by default13:31
sl33k_willy_1977: its wubi install, i already selected a windows drive13:31
SystemDefault0MadCarburetor: Hi.13:31
MadCarburetorI want to use the clearlooks theme, But the window controls get flipped to the wrong side!13:31
zvacetJa23: do you run gparted from live cd?13:31
Ja23Yep13:31
SystemDefault0MadCarburetor: Explain.13:32
MadCarburetorHow do i get them back on the left13:32
MadCarburetorthe - [] and X13:32
sl33k_willy_1977: yea13:32
tjaderI got a problem: I just installed 10.10 on an ideapad, the installation went fine. But after rebooting X doesn't start, and after logging in on the console I notice aptitude isn't installed13:32
ruanMadCarburetor: customise the theme13:32
MadCarburetorThey're on the left in the default theme13:32
willy_1977sl33k_, right with you now :)13:32
SystemDefault0hello13:32
SystemDefault0i am sam13:32
ruanMadCarburetor: customise the "window border" of clearlooks13:32

alesanhi13:33
SystemDefault0hi13:33
alesanhow do I install firefox 4?13:33
ruan!ff413:33
ubottuFirefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. To install it, use the PPA by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox13:33
Ja23ohhh13:33
willy_1977sl33k_, do you know what partition you are trying to mount? e.g. /dev/sda313:33
zvacetJa23: shrink from left to right to get unallocated space outside of sda313:33
alesanruan, will that also work if I had minefield installed before?13:33
Ja23When I select sda3 the resize button is not an option13:33
ruanalesan: yes13:33
SystemDefault0alesan: Check in the repositories13:34
ruani suggested part of that factoid :D13:34
BluesKajhmm, FF4 currently stable eh? Heh I beg to differ...13:34
Ja23I can only choose each individual partition13:34
ruanBluesKaj: mozilla believes its stable :P13:34
MadCarburetorruan, i can change the window borders but how do i flip the window  controls back to the left?13:34
sl33k_willy_1977: there are like 3 windows partition13:34
asfjiohello, guys! how ubuntu people can install firefox 4 final? is there a package?13:34
alesanBluesKaj, maybe you do not know FF4 has been released13:34
alesanwhere do you live in a tunnel?13:35
elFidelMadCarburetor: ubuntu-tweak is one tool which allows easy window-decoration changes (if that helps)13:35
SystemDefault0Back! I apologize another user took my place.13:35
MadCarburetorefidel, thanks i'll try that13:35
edbianasfjio, There is not a package.  You can download the linux version from their website.13:35
elFidelasfjio: install from ppa13:35
sipior!ff4 > asfjio13:35
ubottuasfjio, please see my private message13:35
r0fs3ck5MadCarburetor, are you using Emerald?13:36
elFidelor install it fmanually from the mozilla page13:36
BluesKajmozilla says it's stable ...don't think they beleive it tho13:36
ruanMadCarburetor: change to a theme that uses left side controls, then change back to the custom one with the window border that has default left13:36
* sipior votes that we add the ff4 factoid to the channel topic for a couple weeks...13:36
ruanlol13:36
alesanBluesKaj, I have been using minefield for a while and surely it's more stable than FF313:36
Ja23zvacet thanks for trying to help, my gf wants me to watch the movie with her, I'll be back later!13:36
ruanFF3 is just as stable as FF4 in my experience13:37
BluesKajalesan, judt for your info , I use FF4 and it's not stable in my experience13:37
alesansipior, it would be so much easier if FF4 came automatically with the ubuntu upgrades13:37
SystemDefault0alesan: I use Firefox 3.5 and it works fine.13:37
asfjioelFidel: by manually you mean download the bz and run ./firefox inside there, right?13:37
ruanalesan: FF4 is very different from FF313:37
ruanthus the non-default upgrade13:37
elFidelasfjio: yes - but i would go for the ppa13:37
ale_ale13:37
SystemDefault0alesan: If you wanna use Frefox 4 you should install it from Terminal.13:37
ale_a13:37
sipioralesan: they're not going to jump browser version outside of the release cycle. if that bothers you, use the ppa.13:38
ruanthough im confused.13:38
willy_1977sl33k_, what do you get if you just run the mount command in a terminal?13:38
alesanruan, I thought ubuntu wanted to mimic windows and mac in terms of functionality13:38
ruanwill they ever include ff4 in default updates?13:38
alesanso why not make just the upgrade and that's it13:38
ruanbecause ff3 wont afaik13:38
zvacetJa23:  it is smart decision  8-)13:38
ruanget any more updates13:38
asfjioelFidel: what is the benefit?13:38
uczenhi @ll13:38
elFidelasfjio: of your question?13:38
elFidelasfjio: you were asking for a way to install ff4 right?13:39
sipioralesan: neither windows of apple ship firefox either. you have to do exactly the same amount of work under ubuntu.13:39
SystemDefault0alesan: Do not upgrade. Do fresh installs.13:39
ruanapple and windows never shipped firefox by default. you're lucky13:39
elFidelasfjio: so install it manually or via ppa. or wait until it comes to your distro on the official way13:39
alesanSystemDefault0, why would I want to do that13:39
sipiorSystemDefault0: this isn't 1998.13:39
sl33k_willy_1977: actually my os is just about to get wubi installed and i dont understand what mount means?13:39

alesanhey can I install linux-2.6.38 from some PPA thing?13:41
elFidelalesan: in case you arent used to work with ppa's - you should most likely not mess around with kernel in general13:42
elFideljust my feeling13:43
SystemDefault0Well, gotta go. Take care and have a nice day/night people.13:43
zvacetalesan: I don't think so ,but you can try http://www.ubuntugeek.com/automatically-compile-and-install-the-latest-kernel-using-kernelcheck-in-ubuntu.html13:43
alesanelFidel, but do you know if it's possible?13:43
tjaderalesan: very likely to be13:43
alesanvery different opignions13:44
_antanthmm. Couldn't tell it to use 1920x108013:44
willy_1977sl33k_, ok, so mount basically allows linux to view the directory of a device/partition13:44
_antantmax it would do is 1600x120013:44
ruan_antant: it might not load nvidia drivers along with grub. idk13:44
tjaderalesan: how are our opinions different?
