dtcrshrhello! i recently installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook remix, and i cant connect to wpa2 enterprise network, is there some know issue? would you recommend for me to install 10.04?00:00
terry_vadal: I see xserver-xorg-input-joystick - X.Org X server -- joystick input driver00:00
vadalterry_: thanks man00:01
terry_vadal: you might just need to install that ^^^00:01
critical_maxrypervenche, Of course you can also go into Nautilus, select Preferences > Show hidden, and use the GUI to copy stuff.00:01
vadalterry_: how?00:01
terry_vadal: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-joystick00:01
critical_maxdtcrshr, to research a known issue search google for your card's exact model (and revision) and "linux". if there is a problem it should be apparent in the first page of results as many others will s hare it00:02
rypervenchecritical_max: Ok. I was just curious of a good way to do it in CLI. Are you certain that your rsync command will work?00:02
apersoncritical_max↳ that worked, but now java won't start 'Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.' looks like I have more googling to do00:02
critical_maxrypervenche, yeah the -a switch means "all", you could also just copy the dotfiles with mv .* like jrib said.00:03
critical_maxerr, move them00:03
askreet-a means 'archive' ;)00:03
critical_maxaperson, good, try to find the error log I guess00:03
apersoncritical_max↳ wait, nvm it works00:04
apersoncritical_max↳ I was doing java --version and not java -version00:04
vadalterry_: after i install?00:05
Viking667How do I mount a casper loopback file?00:06
critical_maxaperson, heh, i hate that, it happens with every other app...no consistency00:06
SetaCan anybody tell me what i am doing wrong? Oo http://2big4.me/V0DNAq00:07
ohsixcritical_max: apps that use getopt are mostly uniform, or popt, or libraries like it; it's mostly junk that doesn't00:07
ubottuHere I am, brain the size of a planet and they ask me to respond to factoid requests. Call that job satisfaction? Because I don't.00:07
ohsixjava has single dash stuff ingrained in it since the beginning00:07
jribSeta: what on earth are you linking to?  Use a pastebin like paste.ubuntu.com00:08
critical_maxohsix, played with getopt in perl, lovely00:08
ray24has anyone in here successful sync music to ipod on ubuntu?00:09
ohsixcritical_max: the ones that bug me are the ones that are completely arbitrary, or have some theme, or ideology; like ffmpeg :D00:09
ohsixray24: yes, with rhythmbox00:09
critical_maxray24, i used gtkpod for that00:09
PolahIs Natty due to be a long-term release?00:09
ray24I haven't been able to sync with rhthmbox00:09
jribPolah: no00:09
critical_maxohsix, lol ideological interfaces!00:10
ohsixray24: does your player show up? afaik the plugins are enabled by default, but the ipod/mtp plugins might have gotten turned off00:10
ray24yeah when i plug my ipod in, it opens up rhytmbox00:10
PolahIf I do apt-get dist-upgrade, will it upgrade to the latest release or can I select a release to use?00:11
ray24in the plugin section, portable ipod is checked00:11
jribPolah: apt-get dist-upgrade just upgrades your packages on your current release.00:11
PolahI thought dist-upgrade upgraded the distribution, i.e. release00:12
daerdaaskreet: no luck :(00:12
jribPolah: no00:12
critical_maxPolah, you have to go in sequence when dist-upgrading.00:12
askreetdaerda: what output did you see?00:12
daerdaaskreet: local access works, remote does not00:12
askreetno output from remote, at all?00:12
daerdathat's all I can figure out00:12
critical_maxPolah, recommend using "update-manager -d" to handle it.00:12
PolahSo it's the same as upgrade then, jrib?00:12
daerdaaskreet: nope00:12
jribPolah: is your real question: how to upgrade to natty (a development release)?00:12
askreetdaerda: this is progress then, it's not hosts.allow or any other application-level restrictions.  could still be iptables, but probably your router00:12
jribPolah: no, it's not the same.  « man apt-get » details the differences00:12
askreetdaerda:  do an 'iptables -L' -- should be empty00:12
critical_maxPolah: upgrade means install latest available packages in this distribution release. dist-upgrade (update-manager -d) means get a new distribution release.00:13
PolahNo, I'm getting a VPS that only supports 9.04 from the hosts and I'd like to upgrade it to 10.10 or 11.04 when it's released00:13
critical_maxPolah, indeed, would be useful to know your ultimate motive.00:13
jrib!upgrade | Polah00:13
ubottuPolah: For upgrading, see the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes - see also http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade00:13
ray24ohsix, what is the method you use to sync music?00:13
askreetdaerda, also have you tried going to your external IP (from sites like ipchicken.com) rather than the dyndns name (in case that's the problem)00:13
daerdaaskreet: not empty00:14
critical_maxPolah, Aha, yes, you want to do a 9.10 upgrade, then a 10.04 (the most recent LTS, and a good choice for a server)00:14
askreetdaerda: can you pastebin the output?00:14
daerdaaskreet: I've tried accessing my external IP, yes00:14
ohsixray24: i just drop stuff on the player00:14
daerdaaskreet: http://paste.pocoo.org/show/35922000:14
critical_maxpolah, and yes dist-upgrade is the proper option for apt-get00:14
ray24And it automatically syncs it?00:14
ohsixray24: i think you can right click and tell it to do it too, but dragging works00:14
ohsixit shows up on the player then you just eject it00:15
askreetdaerda, that's what an empty iptables looks like :P00:15
pfifomy ubuntu's AI is stuck in kill mode and is trying to eliminate the human race? How do I reset this behavior back to the default from installation00:15
ray24can you check real quick what version you have?00:15
daerdaaskreet:  :)00:15
askreetdaerda, if you had restrictions there would be entries under INPUT00:15
critical_maxpfifo: screenshot or it didn't happen00:15
askreetdaerda, so we're back to crappy home routers and their inability to do port forwarding -- i've seen issues with this in the past solved by router restarts, or removing and then re-adding the IP.00:15
PolahCritical_max: I'd prefer 10.10 or 11.04 as it should be more advanced; and I don't plan to have the server for the life of 10.0400:15
ohsixray24: i haven't had my ipod with me for a while,  but this was in maverick; are you trying to put flac files or something on it? it wont change the format00:15
bazhangpfifo, not appropriate here00:16
askreetdaerda, also sometimes if you have a DMZ set somewhere, port forwarding stops entirely.00:16
terry_askreet: daerda I have a linux router.   Works great.00:16
critical_maxPolah, sure if you need newer libraries go ahead and upgrade through to 11.04. It's easiest to dist-upgrade with less apps installed/configured, of course, just for time's sake; so you should be in good shape to proceed00:16
askreetterry_: nothing wrong with linux routers... but we're talking about his home router not passing traffic to apache00:17
critical_maxPolah, the more stuff you have installed the more interruptions there are to the upgrade process (scripts asking you details, diffing config files, etc). There's ways to pass apt-get switches to automatically say "yes" to whatever it thinks you should do, might be nice if you want unattended.00:17
gon__can somebody post the command to show the ip's connected to a certain router?00:17

semehi guys... can anyone help me figure out why I can't connect ubuntu to my wireless nework... everything is working for my other systems... I keep getting the dialog asking me for hte password but I've checked and it is right00:18
critical_maxpolah, apt-get -y is the switch for "do what apt thinks best"00:18
terry_gon__: nmap 192.168.0/2400:18
daerdaterry_: good for you.00:18
critical_maxpolah, but i recommend doing at least one without that switch so you can get a feel for what it will ask (usually apache, etc, anything you've configured that diffs from the default config)00:18
terry_gon__: nmap
daerdaI have a router with ddwrt on it but no modem to go with it00:19
Polahcritical_max: All that would be installed would be the basic packages for functionality (SSH, FTP) and Java, perhaps Xorg if other people would like to access my server and use it easily.00:19
daerdaso I'm stuck with a cheap netgear00:19
terry_gon__: where is your actual subnet00:19
critical_maxPolah, yep, I recommend installing/configuring those services after the dist-upgrade if possible.00:19
dfhActionParsnip, that's automated, right: https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/firefox/+question/150338 ? because that totally doesn't answer my question00:19

gon__thank you just a moment i'll have to install it00:19
critical_maxPolah, just for streamlining the process. It'd work either way, but more time if you install them first.00:19
semehrm... have to restart let's see if this update to network manager helps00:20
Viking667found it... sorry for the time.00:20
PolahCritical_max: Assuming a standard set of packages like ftp and ssh that come as default; would it be worthwhile to remove them, upgrade and then reinstall them?00:20
terry_daerda: What do you mean, no modem to go with it?00:20
critical_maxPolah, I also have to give a plug for sftp unless plain FTP is a business requirement - all modern FTP clients handle it and it's secure.00:20
critical_maxPolah, no, that's not needed00:20
critical_maxPolah, I have dist-upgraded something like 4 times now with a massive load of packages, no problem, I'm just saying it's faster the less you  have installed, the less there is to download :)]00:21
terry_daerda: You plug the router into the modem.  Right?00:22

PolahCritical_Max: Thanks for the information00:22
daerdaterry_: yes00:22
critical_maxpolah, you should be able to do a series of 3 dist-upgrades with the -y switch and get to 10.10 with minimal fuss00:22
daerdaterry_: then the modem into the hole in the wall00:23
critical_maxexpect 2 hours each or more00:23
terry_daerda: Yea... right.00:23
gon__terry_: Thanks for the information00:23
critical_maxPolah: If you configure one thing, make it the apt mirror00:23
terry_gon__: NP00:23
PolahCritical: Just do dist-upgrade && dist-upgrade && dist-upgrade and leave it?00:23
critical_maxPolah: Find an apt mirror that's local to you, it will speed the process drastically00:23
jribPolah: no.  Read the link I had ubottu send you about upgrading please00:23
critical_maxPolah, Nah, you'll want to babysit in between. And do read more about it before starting.00:23
Polahmsg ubottu !upgrade00:24
critical_maxPolah: apt-mirror is the package that lets you pick a local mirror for updates00:24
Polahmsg ubottu !upgrade00:25
critical_maxI have a mirror 30 miles away *heaven*00:25
PolahAh did it again, terribleness.00:25
bazhangcritical_max, dist-upgrade is not the way to do it00:25
vividanyone know how i can get my 10.10 machine to poweroff on shutdown?00:25
critical_maxbazbang, I recommended update-manager -d but he's on a VPS00:25
bazhang!dist-upgrade | critical_max00:25
ubottucritical_max: A dist-upgrade will install new dependencies for packages already installed and may remove packages if they are no longer needed. Please see !upgrade for the proper way to upgrade to a new version of Ubuntu.00:25
jribcritical_max: update-manager -d is only to upgrade to development releases00:25
bazhangcritical_max, also very bad advice00:25
terry_daerda: What I have is a PC with IPcop installed on it and on the green network I have an 8port gigibit switch plugged into the green network and into that is a wireless router (plugged into one of the LAN ports with the DHCP server turned off so that it acts as a wireless switch). Printer and other PCs here in the office plug into the gigibit switch.00:25
critical_maxUpdate manager does offer distribution releases if they aren't development, yeah; Polah specifically said he wanted bleeding edge/11.0400:26
jribcritical_max: no he didn't :/00:26
bazhangcritical_max, that wont do what he needs00:26
critical_maxOk, feel free to take over.00:26
critical_maxIt's worked for me umpteen times.00:26
PolahCritical_max, bazhang, jrib: I did say I'd rather upgrade to 10.10 then 11.04 after release. Just a misunderstanding, obviously.00:27
jribPolah: yes00:27
bazhangPolah, I saw that00:27
critical_max<Polah> Critical_max: I'd prefer 10.10 or 11.04 as it should be more advanced; and I don't plan to have the server for the life of 10.0400:27
bazhangcritical_max, still not the way to go at all.00:27
critical_maxIn any case, Polah should be reading the docs that have been linked.00:28
jribPolah, critical_max: I think it's just confusing to say "dist-upgrade" when talking about distribution upgrades because there's a command called "dist-upgrade" and it's not how one performs a distribution upgrade00:28
bazhangcritical_max, yes, and they completely go against what you are recommending here00:28

critical_maxterry_, that's what www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/upgrade says. I admit to being totally unfamiliar with that command. Finally bit by Ubuntu's fast pace, I guess.00:31
critical_maxPolah, you should do what that doc link says. jrib left and clearly I'm out of date with the process.00:31

luarawhat is this00:32
terry_Upgrade instructions say: sudo apt-get install update-manager-core ; sudo do-release-upgrade00:32
critical_maxPolah, yeah from looking at that page it just uses 'do-release-upgrade' as a wrapper for update-manager functionality00:32

no-gooder here is the pastebin : http://pastebin.com/nRUvTqaW00:39
critical_maxno-gooder: Oh you already removed the pacakge? /etc/apache2 is left because removing the package won't remove config. You should be fine leaving it there. You can also use "apt-get purge apache2" in future which will remove config as well as the package00:39
aguenterno-gooder: if "which apache2" returns nothing then apache is successfully uninstalled00:40
no-goodercritical_max,  but localhost still works00:40

critical_maxthat's the other pastebin.00:42
aguenterPolah: ok thanks00:42
PolahHmm, random thought about mounting. Is /mnt/ supposed to be used for mounting actual drives and /media/ for removable media?00:42
Tom__it seems to be mounted as it appears on the desktop but there's nothing in /mnt00:43
no-gooderPolah,  i did that too. bu still works00:43
critical_maxPolah, since ubuntu mounts actual drives under /media/ too now, I think /mnt/ is just the older standard... I'm sure someone knows the history behind it..00:43
aguenterPolah: yes, that's how I mount and always assumed... /mnt/ is also for remote mount points (network shares) IMO00:43
no-goodercritical_max, i tried "sudo update-rc.d apache2 remove" but localhost still works00:43
nmaxchatOK to remove ?00:43
Polahno-gooder: I ask because I've got mine mounted in /media/. I guess you could mount it anywhere but it just makes sense to use one of those00:43
critical_maxaguenter: yeah, network shares go to /mnt, good point00:43
critical_maxno-gooder, so it's still running? run "pgrep apache" and find the processes and kill them..00:44

aguenterno-gooder: the binaries are still resident in memory even though you removed the package from disk, so either pkill them or reboot00:46
critical_maxTom__ in general you can use Places menu to mount a partition, and once mounted you can use "sudo" in the terminal to read/copy from it00:46

Tom__critical max u say i can sudo to a mounted partition but how do i reference it within the cd command00:48
aguenterwow, this is not a good place for my question I see :(00:48
dfhodei, sounds like you hdd is dying00:48
kerneloops_(3) Check to see if the ALSA driver for your sound card exists. Go to http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/ and search for your sound card (chipset) manufacturer in the dropdown box. You'll be given a matrix of the sound cards made by the manufacturer. Try to match the chipset you found in step 2 with the driver(green hyperlink text).00:49
RodolfoI already did but it seems to fail AT ALL00:49
kerneloops_how do I search ..00:49
ActionParsnipb1lly: only if you need write access, otherwise omitting gksudo is fine if you just want to read the finle00:49
jorgehi i cant install firefox 4 in my ubuntu00:49
ActionParsnip!ff4 | jorge00:49
ubottujorge: Firefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. Current versions of Ubuntu do not have it (see !latest), but there is an unofficial and unsupported PPA that you can use by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox00:49
critical_maxaguenter, you could try later - it's a pretty specific question and it's just no one knows at the moment.00:49
Rodolfothere is no such repo from the U10.10 that seems to work out on this one00:49
odeiI dunno dfh, it's a new hdd and I seem to have fixed the i/o problems00:49
dfhodei, I'm afraid I don't have any other solution than to fsck and reinstall00:50
grkblood3critical_max, i dont think thats what i want, i want to connect to my ssh daemon from a proxy. i want my daemon to see the proxies IP when i connect00:50
critical_maxTom__ when you mount the partition in Places, after that you can open it from Places in Nautilus. YOu'll see a string of numbers as the Nautilus title (ugly!) That's what you're looking for in the shell...00:50
aguentercritical_max: I will, it just seems like I might have better luck on the forums as IRC seems to be overloaded with "easier" questions00:50
critical_maxTom__, after that you can "cd /media/2938741074" or whatever the string of numbers is.00:50
dollarbangjorge: look at this link: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxNewVersion00:51
odeiwoo, I haven't had a fresh install for weeks00:51
critical_maxaguenter, plenty of technical advice here, it's just no one has that precise situation. I'd definitely start a thread for now.00:51
lordjjDoes anyone recomment 10.10 over 10.04 LTS?00:51
aguentercritical_max: I didn't mean to imply that there wasn't. I'll go ahead and do that, thanks :)00:51
odeiare there any problems with ext4? this is the first time I've had a system on it, I could go back to ext3?00:51
critical_maxaguenter, good luck!00:51
aguenterlordjj: I'm running both and I like 10.10 fine00:51
mrmei'm logged in on my wife's netbook using an sd card.  I just backed up the home directory, deleted the partition, created a new partition for it, and replaced the data on it.  i still have the root partition.  how can i set it so that the root partition will see the new partition as the /home mount point?00:52
critical_maxgrkblood3, so  your ssh server logs show the client ip not the proxy? is it a proxy config issue?00:52
b1llyi have apache and php installed, is there an apt-get for mysql?00:52
aguenterlordjj:but unless you have a good reason to run 10.10 over 10.04 go LTS00:52
critical_maxgrkblood3 you are just going      client --> proxy --> server? what's the proxy?00:52
grkblood3critical_max, im not that far, im trying to figure out how to try to login to the daemon through a proxy00:52
Jeruvyb1lly: mysql-client and mysql-server00:52

b1llyjeruvy which one do i need to host a mysql databse/ both?00:53
grkblood3critical_max, not sure yet, havent picked one from open-proxy.org00:53
aguenterb1lly, if you're on a recent build you should use tasksel00:53

lordjjHey, I tried to create a boot drive from a USB stick using Ubuntu Startup disk creator and the Ubuntu CD, but it wouldn't work (no Kernel founf after I choose run Ubuntu). Anything I'm missing?00:54
b1llyaguenter: is there a way to see if i have something installed00:54
swimmerdude101i dont know about moditers im using a laptop sorry00:54
critical_maxgrkblood3, I've been there and done that and the solution is usually "try a different proxy" and as I said it's outside of the scope of this channel.00:54
b1llyex: to see if i got php5-mysql installd00:54
tundra010rcmaehl: bogomips are a rough measure of the speed of your cpu.00:54
grkblood3critical_max, does it matter though? you just want the number right? if so lets say its proxy at
ActionParsniprwe: run: sudo lshw -C display     websearch for the product line to get your video chip setup, the monitor will be plug and play so will be fine once the driver is setup00:54
rcmaehltundra010: how is it calculated?00:55
swimmerdude101i made a proxy but the host site took it down00:55
critical_maxgrkblood3, it does matter because those proxies are collected usually without their owner's knowledge. It's a hack. It's unsupported.00:55
swimmerdude101i thinking of making another tho00:55
tundra010depends on your cpu, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BogoMips00:55
grkblood3if i wanted to use proxy and the daemon was what would the command be00:55
odeiI guess I'll try to check the hdd00:55
rcmaehlswimmerdude101: why do you need a proxy00:55
mrmei know i need to meddle with grub, but how?00:55
swimmerdude101sometimes i look at bbc00:55
reya276Ubuntu 11.04 messed up my GRUB menu and now my Ubuntu 10.10 entry is not available. How can I fix this?00:56
swimmerdude101or one of those british news things00:56
rweActionParsnip thanks00:56
aguenterb1lly: dpkg -s package-name | grep Status00:56
critical_maxgrkblood3, if you want support for a proxy the only way you will get it is to pay for a proxy service (there are many, and they are cheap)00:56
swimmerdude101anyone know when the next ubuntu (ubuntu 11) will come out?00:56

Polahautomatrix:  in that directory do ls >> files.txt01:07
critical_maxHyperShock, you will almost certainly need to *start* by modifying the LiveCD as in !remaster. https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DerivativeTeam/GettingInvolved seems to be the entry point for a serious project01:07

automatrixPolah, there are so much paths ....01:09
th0rkerneloops_: you don't01:09
terry_kerneloops_: The use is not in audio group probably01:09
ActionParsnipkerneloops_: possibly because you aren't in the right group01:10
kerneloops_terry_: does that mean that I can't play audio files?01:10
PolahOhzie: System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts?01:10

shandoranyone get atheros AT5001 drivers working?01:10
kerneloops_Im trying to make sound work01:10

critical_maxhelios: and even then you should know what and why you are changing, and it was something you installed yourself01:14

kerneloops_32 subdevices01:27
terry_Phong_: to run windows inside .... ok, well never mind.  (But you were asking if wine ran most windows apps, I just wanted to make sure you knew about virtualbox)01:27
HyperShockPhong_, virtualbox will allow you to emulate a pc clone inside of your linux os, of which you can install any os on it, probably win xp or vista. then you can have access to all those programs that you will be missing. this will work for most things except the games that use direct(?) stuff.01:27

HyperShockyeah but you have to waste valuable cpu resources on protection software.01:35

Phong_i never use AV at all01:35
HyperShockdo you frequently scan with malwarebytes, or some other tool?01:35
Phong_i dont need it. cause i dont install weirds apps01:35
terry_Phong_: Oh, well, you are very lucky.  How long has the OS been up and running (and connected to the internet)?  And do you use it much?01:35
HyperShockyou need to call the Guiness Book of World Records and register yourself.01:36

b1llyif i install the lamp package with apache2 and php5 already installed, is it gunna bug out?01:37
terry_Phong_: Keep using it then.  And keep up the optomism, you're doing a very good job of convincing yourself that you have a secure platform.  (Don't think any of the others are all that convinced.  I'm sure not.)01:37

amh345i'm trying to setup ssl on apache. i keep getting this error "[warn] RSA server certificate CommonName (CN) `www.blahblah.com'  does NOT match server name!?"  is this specific to the apache config or is it an issue with a cert?01:43
ActionParsnipdfh: a virus is defined as a self replicating thing, hoaxes are passed between users and are classed as viruses01:43
HyperShockI found this about max http://www.spamlaws.com/mac-virus.html 2008 is the date. The only reason I think it even happened at all is because of the closed source nature of everything OS X and iWhatever.01:43
critical_maxamh345: that's because your server name doesn't match, it's in the apache config01:43
critical_maxamh345: make it match the cert on the server side01:44

Logan_!whatareyou | charlesno01:47
dfhActionParsnip, I'm aware of that. My point was the only malware that is risky for users of OS X right now are trojans distributed on p2p (keygens, cracks for Office, iWork etc), they are non-replicating01:47

HyperShockcharlesno, uh, eh, well, the only problem i had on occasions was sound knocking out and a simpling using alsa-utils to unmute channels fixed that and another time my broadcom wireless went to bye bye land and so i hand to hardwire to the router to reinstall the driver.01:52

Tom__I like in natty nawhal how pressing the windows key brings up the search field from unity;  Guessing that this pretty much makes gnome-do redundent01:56
critical_maxamh345, reason i ask is the next step i'd take is comparing it to a working config side by side. there can be a lot of idiosyncracies with different people's apache configs. So if you have another on that server, it could be instructive to compare them...01:56

critical_maxtbruff13, my system has no medibuntu and shows nothing02:16
padeekinsdamn, I didn't know the ubuntu chat etiquette was emily post status02:16
astleysoreau: then why doesn't it work in game?02:16
soreauastley: Since you see output in jstest, this means the driver is working. Now you just have to convince your game(s) and other apps to use it02:16
tbruff13critical_max, so is it because i have 64 bit system02:16
critical_maxtbruff13, now we are back to the ffmpeg thing. I bet it's in w64codecs but that's just me.02:17
soreauastley: What game are you trying?02:17
astleysoreau: how?02:17
Tom__does natty still use gnome or does unity replace this or is it just a new piece of software which works with gnome?02:17
critical_maxtbruff13, I couldn't say. But you seem to have the repositories working just fine.02:17
astleyit works!02:17
soreauastley: good :)02:17
astleysoreau: sorry02:17
tbruff13critical_max, ok also do you know a good front end for ffmpeg02:17
soreauastley: no problem02:17
=== brian_ is now known as glyphirder
critical_maxtbruff13, i watch movies in VLC02:17
=== glyphirder is now known as glyphrider
DasEiTom__: unity, but can have gnome, too #ubuntu+1 right channel02:17
tbruff13critical_max, should i install ffmpeg and w64codecs02:18
* HyperShock is waiting for astley to perform a rick roll02:18
soreauastley: The driver is autoloaded when you plug it under ubuntu and it should work OOTB02:18
critical_maxtbruff13, I don't know what your goal is but it wouldn't hurt.02:18
kerneloops_Ubuntu Desktop warns the user when Restart is needed. How do I know then restarted is needed in Ubuntu Server?02:18
soreaukerneloops_: Should tell you when you log in from ssh..02:18
soreauprobably when you login02:19
tbruff13critical_max, my goal is to convert to .ogg in the program known as winff02:19
critical_maxkerneloops_, basically you only have to restart to upgrade the kernel. APT will warn you if one is absolutely required, it's really rare.02:19
kerneloops_it does?02:19
DasEikerneloops_: ssh or just see a new kernel, might want look to ksplice to avoid that rebboting02:19
critical_maxtbruff13, ok cool, that codec package must be what brought you to the medibuntu repo then02:19
astleyHyperShock: i get this output when i post fail http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZ5TajZYW6Y\02:20
DasEi!info ksplice | kerneloops_02:20
ubottukerneloops_: ksplice (source: ksplice): Patching live kernel without having to reboot. In component universe, is optional. Version 0.9.9-2 (maverick), package size 151 kB, installed size 880 kB (Only available for i386 amd64 arm armel)02:20
kerneloops_DasEi: hehe ksplice is too advanced for me02:20
critical_maxksplice is wicked! :O02:20
tbruff13critical_max, yes02:20
tbruff13so ill try it02:20
kerneloops_is that even possible02:21
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI(BOW) hay all02:21
critical_maxit is now, apparently02:21
dfhanyone using ksplice here? it's always getting mentioned but I have yet to see a single user02:21
kerneloops_critical_max: my doubt is .. does it have the same effect as rebooting02:21
tbruff13critical_max, should i donwload winff from repository or website02:21
soreaukerneloops_: You can even swap the entire kernel without rebooting02:22
DasEikerneloops_: yes works, I have it on two machines for over a year now02:22
critical_maxkerneloops_, I'm sure the ksplice docs address that in detail.02:22
critical_maxtbruff13, general advice is repo unless upstream (website/whatever) has a feature you MUST have02:22
soreaukerneloops_: kexec I think it's called02:22
kerneloops_link for guide02:23
soreaukerneloops_: Here's the wiki page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kexec02:23
tbruff13critical_max, but they have there own repository so ill use it for now02:23
critical_maxtbruff13, using their repo is also better than a tarball or deb from the website, yes.02:24
tbruff13critical_max, thank you can i ask one more question  sorry02:24
critical_maxDasEi, so there's really no reason to reboot a Linux server at all now huh, except for testing recovery from UPS failure?02:24
no--nameis ntfs-3g built into ubuntu?02:25
critical_maxtbruff13, of course02:25
kerneloops_wow Ksplice won a contest02:25
DasEicritical_max: right, as most services can be restarted instead, if needed02:25
rwwno--name: yes02:25
tbruff13critical_max, do you know of any program other than the one that came with ubuntu and unetbootin to create live usbs i want something that boots like unetbootin but has persistance02:26
critical_maxDasEi: I had some very silly long uptimes on Etch systems. I don't like rebooting. I will check out Ksplice.02:26
soreautbruff13: You can just install to a usb from a live cd02:26
no--nameso ntfs-3g is what handles NTFS drives by default? (you don't have to use some special option)?02:26
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIping me02:26
DasEioOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI: pong02:27
tbruff13soreau,  i dont want to use the slow defult client02:27
critical_maxtbruff13, try just installing ubuntu to a usb stick then.02:27
soreautbruff13: What do you mean?02:27
critical_maxsoreau said it first. :)02:27
kerneloops_Ksplice explantion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a22T27rU4b0 :)02:27
soreaucritical_max: win ;)02:27
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIyeah use USB installer02:27
critical_maxTrueCrypt that sucker while you're at it.02:28
soreaucritical_max: Hmm, probably not a bad idea...02:28
tbruff13soreau, the startup disk creator is too slow at booting so i want to try another program02:28
tbruff13i want to install to a usb stick this is why i want the other program02:28
critical_maxtbruff13, you can install to a usb stick with the regular installer cd02:28
critical_maxjust choose it as the destination02:28
soreautbruff13: Just boot a live cd, insert the usb and partition it as you would any other drive02:29
critical_maxof course your BIOS must be configured to boot from USB02:29
kerneloops_DasEi: is ksplice easy to use ?02:29
ubottuYou're testing my patience!02:29
critical_maxtbruff13, getting into bios varies widely, google your make and model of computer + "bios"02:29
b1llyip addr show02:29
b1llywill show my local ip right02:29
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIor press F9 or F12 depend on ur PC02:29
tbruff13i know how to use bios02:30
DasEikerneloops_: relatively, too long ago to remember details, but was not more then an hour or so02:30
critical_maxtbruff13, once inside you are looking for 'boot priority' or similar, put usb somewhere before hard drive02:30
soreautbruff13: When you go to install from cd, just choose manual partitioning and select the usb device node, /dev/sdc or whatever in the partitioner02:30
gervaisdoes anyone know anything about making bots, im getting frustrated lol02:30
critical_maxand do what soreau said with the cd installer.02:30
critical_maxgervais: state your specific subtask and i can try to help02:30
tbruff13oh wow treat my usb as a seprate laptop wow awesome02:30
critical_maxtbruff13: it's just another hard drive to the pc02:31
DasEitbruff13: size of usb ?02:31
tbruff13is 8 gigs enough02:31
soreautbruff13: a portable, mobile drive02:31
DasEi8 G is fine, tbruff1302:31
soreautbruff13: It would work on as low as 2GB and even much less for some distros02:31
tbruff13critical_max,  and soreau  question i have gotten ubuntu to work at school but i cant get it to connect to the internet i know the password im just having issues it has an all windows and apple laptops on it02:32
DasEidepends, live install = 1gb, but persistant, I's prefer least 4g02:32
kerneloops_8gb for desktop02:32
critical_maxtbruff13, that will depend heavily on your school, talk to the IT people there. every single setup is different02:32
gervaisIm having trouble with the basics of creating a bot for irc chat, any help would be awesome.02:32
tbruff13well it works just link my internet at home will simba help02:33
DasEigervais: wrong channel here, ask in #freenode02:33
gervaisok thanks02:33
kerneloops_how to get time from terminal?02:33
b1llyi have my apache setup02:33
gervaisjoin #freenode02:33
b1llyi can connect to it via localhost02:33
DasEikerneloops_: date02:33
dfhkerneloops_,, date02:33
b1llyhowever my friends cant connect to my ip02:33
b1llyeven tho i fwded the ports on my router to this machine02:34
b1llyis there something i did wrong?02:34
DasEib1lly: registered dns ?02:34
jokkWhere are all the programs located (the "program files" of linux)???02:34
tbruff13critical_max, will simba help02:34
b1llyi need a registered dns for them to connect to my IP ADDRESS?02:34
DasEijokk: /usr/bin mainly02:34
soreaukerneloops_: date +%r02:34
critical_maxtbruff13, I don't know what that is. Like I said your best bet is to talk to the IT guys there. I used to deal with school networks in my job and believe me it's a nightmare I don't want to revisit.02:35
dfh!FHS |jokk02:35
ubottujokk: An explanation of how files and directories are organized on Ubuntu, and how they can be manipulated, can be found at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LinuxFilesystemTreeOverview  see also: man hier02:35
jokkWIne is messed up and I need to ttoally delete it02:35
critical_maxtbruff13, most school networks are locked down 6 different ways02:35
soreaujokk: rm -rf ~/.wine02:35
DasEib1lly: your server, more comfortable than ip by name, needs it, until you have a static ip02:35
soreaujokk: Then restart and reconfigure it02:35
b1llyDasEi: i do have a static ip tho02:36
DasEioh I see02:36
tbruff13critical_max, ok people bring there windows computers from home and connect why can linux connect on school computer02:36
jokkI type that in command soreau ?02:36
critical_maxtbruff13, I don't know, it varies by every single school, ask your IT guys02:36
DasEib1lly: pm me ?02:36
b1llymaybe i didnt set up my vhost config file right?02:36
tbruff13critical_max, i dont know any suddenlink handles our network02:36
soreaujokk: 'rm -rf ~/.wine' will delete the wine configuration directory from your home folder, effectively resetting it to default02:36
critical_maxtbruff13, there is no limit to the arcane and stupid restrictions placed on school networks. I cannot speculate or help, sorry.02:37
soreaucritical_max: xD02:37
tbruff13ok i get it to work but can you tell does a linux computer look different to a network than a windows one02:37
critical_maxtbruff13, yes02:37
gusgWhen do updates get added to the Ubuntu default repositories? For example, the version of LyX in the repo is 1.6.7, but there have been releases 1.6.9 and 2.0.0rc102:37
jokksoreau: the problem is no progrms are running in wine02:37
jokksoreau: its likely corrupted02:37
jokksoreau: maybe even a virus02:38
tbruff13critical_max, how02:38
soreaujokk: So remove that directory and try again02:38
HyperShocktrbruff13, you shouldn't be having problems with suddenlink, i'm on their network now.02:38
soreaujokk: If it still doesn't work, ask in #winehq02:38
critical_maxtbruff13, it's complicated. play with "zenmap" on your own network and you will see exactly how, very easily02:38
soreau! wine | jokk02:38
ubottujokk: WINE is a compatibility layer for running Windows programs on GNU/Linux - More information: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine - Search the !AppDB for application compatibility ratings - Join #winehq for application help - See !virtualizers for running Windows (or another OS) inside Ubuntu02:38
tbruff13okay how do i get zenmap02:38
soreau!info zenmap02:38
ubottuzenmap (source: nmap): The Network Mapper Front End. In component universe, is extra. Version 5.21-1~build1 (maverick), package size 662 kB, installed size 2400 kB02:38
jokksoreau: is the wine directory in the BIN?02:38
soreautbruff13: your package manager, with universe repo enabled02:39
soreaujokk: what?02:39
jokksoreau: where do I delete the wine directory02:39
dfhjokk, the directory is in /home/jokk/.wine02:39
soreaujokk: You mean where do you run that command? In your terminal..02:39
tbruff13jokk, press crtl H to see .wine02:40
joseAwayHello all02:40
jokksoreau: no meant where can I manually delete the folder ...windows style :)02:40
DayspringHello Jopse02:40
soreaujokk: Nautilus. Places>Home then Ctrl+H and shift+delete it02:40
dfhtbruff13, http://nmap.org/book/osdetect.html02:40
joseAwayI want the fastcgi worker process for my website to start on boot, but it seems like an initscript is too heavy duty for the job02:40
joseAwaywhat should I use?02:40
joseAwayI think cron has an @boot magic keyword, perhaps02:40
ActionParsnipjoseAway: could use /etc/rc.local02:40
critical_maxgusg, what version of ubuntu are you on?02:41
ActionParsnipjoseAway: or @boot as you say, with cron02:41
gusgcritical_max: 10.1002:41
joseAwayActionParsnip: okay, just wondered if that was an uncommon use case for cron. It does seem like the best, since different user accounts will be need to run their own stuff on-boot02:42
critical_maxgusg: the short answer is 'it depends'. but in general if you are not on an LTS release (like 10.04) then you have a good chance of getting those kind of updates eventually. It really depends on the specific package maintainer for Ubuntu (and/or Debian)02:42
gusgcritical_max thanks for the explanation02:42
kerneloops_How do I search for a file in all files and folders?02:42
kerneloops_using termina02:43
soreaukerneloops_: locate filename02:43
jon_athonWhat's a good program to resize multiple jpg images on the fly?02:43
critical_maxgusg: feature upgrades to packages do get included, but you'll need to check activity for the specific project you're interested in. sometimes googling for your ubuntu release + project name will turn up discussion of hurdles.02:43
critical_maxgusg: for an LTS you'd just get bugfix upgrades02:43
tbruff13critical_max, how does it work and how do i run it as root02:43
jokkthere is no .wine02:43
critical_maxgusg you're welcome.02:43
DasEikerneloops_: locate after sudo updatedb (time!) find, ls02:43
kerneloops_tried locate02:43
soreaujokk: Then you haven't used wine yet02:44
jokksoreau: I did02:44
jokksoreau: I used a few programs02:44
DasEikerneloops_: initial set database up, but depending on hd takes some time02:44
critical_maxtbruff13, yeah you might want to do that "gksudo zenmap". scanning the network requires root privileges for certain functions02:44
soreaujokk: I guess you have to ask #winehq then02:44
jokksoreau: then it got corrupted02:44
dfhjokk open terminal and type: cd; ls .wine02:44
tbruff13critical_max, can this scan for ipods on a network my principal wants a list and can this program do that02:44
jokkdfh: dosdevices  drive_c  system.reg  userdef.reg  user.reg02:45
critical_maxtbruff13, you're doing free IT work for your principal? :O umm yeah it could.02:45
dfhso it's there, now type: rm -r .wine02:45
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIcritical_max : where do u come from?02:45
critical_maxtbruff13, zenmap sees all except what doesn't want to be seen.02:46
jokkdfh: it just goes to another line02:46
jokkin the command dfh02:46
dfhjokk, that was to be expected, you just deleted the folder ;)02:46
tbruff13critical_max, how do i do that i dont know how to use the program02:46
critical_maxtbruff13, might want to search for a how-to02:46
critical_maxit's complicated.02:46
dfhjokk, now try running those exes in wine again02:46
tbruff13critical_max, but now i need to learn fast he has been on my butt for days02:46
jokkdfh: I still see everything in the startup menu02:46
jon_athonWhat's a good program to resize multiple jpg images on the fly?02:47
InphernalHi all, I am using Maverick and just started having a problem with my mouse. I can pick a window and then use it fine, but cannot click outside it to switch windows or even use the close/minimise buttons on the current window. What could be causing this?02:47
jokkdfh: nothing shows up02:47
jokkdfh: but it was doing this before02:47
critical_maxtbruff13, Well now you have the tool for the job. :)02:47
dfhjokk, no wine expert sorry, the "startup menu" should be fixed by logging out and back in again02:48
InphernalSeems like right clicking in the current window releases the mouse, but it just gets stuck again in a new window02:48
jokkhmmm lemme try dfh02:48

critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, tools for what purpose?02:52
ray24Does anyone use banshee to sync music?02:52
dfhT_N_T, UPNP implies you are behind a router, where are they scanning you - within the network or are they scanning the router?02:52
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIcritical_max : for port scan, netstat, etc02:52
critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, what is your goal? if you're monitoring, you should be using a monitoring package like Nagios or (pick your favorite)02:53
dfhT_N_T, sudo netstat -antup will tell you what's listening on what ports02:53
critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, mon is a nice simpler monitor02:53

oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI critical_max : is nagios a package from ubuntu or external appl02:55
critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, I have had great experience with "mon" (simple) and "Nagios" (complex) for monitoring. if you want to poke your systems for holes start with nmap02:55
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiILOL all the bot drop02:55
Logan_!netsplit | ray2402:55
ubotturay24: netsplit is when two IRC servers of the same network (like freenode) disconnect from each other, so users on one server stop seeing users on the other. If this is happening now, just relax and enjoy the show. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netsplit02:55
critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, nagios is an external package. "mon" has a much much lower learning curve, for what it's worth.02:56
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIcritical_max : could u give me a link for that?02:56
critical_maxoOOIiIiI_UTD_IiI, and there are probably other options that i'm not considering02:56
critical_maxfirst hit in google.02:56
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIok then02:56
oOOIiIiI_UTD_IiIi'd better looking on google02:56
critical_maxit's a major software ... :) will have no trouble with docs and support.02:57

ubottuYou should avoid noisy away messages and -nicks in a busy channel like #ubuntu, or other Ubuntu channels; it causes excessive scrolling which is unfair to new users. Use the command "/away <reason>" to set your client away silently.  See also «/msg ubottu Guidelines»03:09

[1]Jakeetzerd: Last I heard the 11.04 ran my card fine so maybe yours will work too.  If not watch Nvidia and if they get it working then you may just have to do a binary install.03:23

XubuntuKrisNow compiz won't close though soreau03:28
the_corewell I installed it over windows lol so I have to do something03:28
XubuntuKrisnvm, it closed now.03:28
soreauXubuntuKris: You dont want your window manager to cease running because then nothing will be managing your windows!03:28
DasEiXubuntuKris: for compiz some graphics power and ram is needed, and also the card must have 3d cabable drivers03:28
XubuntuKrisI mean the forground User Interface soreau03:29
niccoli[1]Jake, I haven't, but I'm doubtful that an old compaq mouse would have a linux driver.03:29
[1]Jakeniccoli:  Back when I used unix we had to get drivers for the dummest things sometimes.03:29
the_coreis my problem due to not being able to connect to net?03:29

XubuntuKrisI don't remember what it was, but it ended in "disown" or something like that soreau03:36
mrdeb-h = hurt03:36

kerneloops_the computer keeps turned on hehe but the system shuts down03:36

XubuntuKrisWill that fix my theme issues and compiz opening it's "advanced search" on it's own about ten seconds after I open compiz soreau?03:39
soreauwesley: Ok, Im going to recommend you upgrade your driver stack with xorg-edgers repo because you are seeing corruption03:39
mrdebwhat does that mean03:39
wesleysoreau: ok so how do i do that03:40
soreauwesley: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental && sudo apt-get upgrade03:40

[1]Jakejrmcm:  Toshiba user guide says your resolution should be 1366x76803:42
mrdebthe 9600 is a good card03:43
soreaulordcrusader: I have that card.. its decent, especially with the new gallium drivers default in 11.0403:43
the_corewell Ubuntu just started and seems ok but no connection03:43
XubuntuKrissoreau, it didn't change anything.03:43
lordcrusaderthrough some of the readings though I believe this game is ment for Nvidia cards.......... would it make that much of a difference?03:43
mrdebsoreau: what are the gallium drivers? open ati drivers?03:43
soreaumrdeb: Yes03:44
jrmcm[1]Jake: alright, thx, I was actually wondering if there was a way to find it through ubuntu03:44
student-22sok tahu03:44
rypervencheI was told that using aptitude is better than using apt-get. Is there any place I can learn more about using aptitude? For example, what does the "{a}" mean after a program when I am installing it?03:44
jrmcmbut knowing is good enough. :)03:44
mrdebsoreau: what is the performance hit in percentage when using hte gallium driver vs ati's03:44
soreaumrdeb: Actually, gallium is new code in mesa. The classic mesa driver is currently default03:44
lordcrusaderany ideas on how I could possibly fix the "windows creation error"? and or exactly what it could be meaning?03:45
soreaumrdeb: You dont compare fglrx because it doesnt support older cards03:45
[1]JakeNot a ubuntu expert.  My latest machines don't have drivers supported by linux yet so. :(03:45
the_coreI cannot connect to my wireless:(03:45
soreaumrdeb: Its classic mesa vs gallium. Means opengl 1.5 vs opengl 2.103:45

mrdebwhat is the difference there03:45

mrdebhow much faster03:46
jrmcm[1]Jake: well dang that sucks :( definetly03:46
mrdebi have to know how much. half , third, 10 percent03:46
soreaumrdeb: do your own tests. r600g is being heavily developed03:46

jrmcm[1]Jake: Just wait itll happen eventually03:47
soreaumrdeb: The thing is, open drivers are getting faster all the time, while fglrx is just basically a bunch of the code they use on windoze03:48
[1]Jakejrmcm:  April 28th I am hoping it will work on the new release03:48
XubuntuKrisSo what can I do to fix my theme soreau?03:48

the_corecan someone help me get connected to my net again,windows worked fine with my wireless but Ubuntu ,no connection03:50
soreaumrdeb: Yea, but the thing is, AMD bought ATI, dropped the ATI name in favor of Radeon opened even more hardware specifications and hired kernel developers to work full time on the open driver. Nvidia on the other hand does not release any hardware specs so nouveau must be painstakingly reverse engineered03:50
rypervencheWhat does the {a} mean next to a package name in aptitude? And is it better to use aptitude over apt-get?03:51
soreaumrdeb: Obviously its much easier to program a decent driver with hardware specs than trying to fish around in the dark03:51

RubenAlonzoSeemann: i am sure if you fish about the net, you will find legacy drivers that support linux written for your card. perhaps even drivers from the manufacturer as well. have you tried the update manager yet? there might be ones already out just sitting for you to download?06:06

critical_maxWhat is the proper method for specifying a local Ubuntu mirror? I remember a command line app that did it in Debian, but I don't see it here.06:25
red2kiccritical_max: apt-mirror?06:25
AnnunakiWhere is a place to study Kernel development?06:25
critical_maxred2kic, That is what I remembered but currently apt-mirror in Ubuntu reps is an app for creating a local mirror, which is not what I want.06:26
critical_maxred2kic, I am just looking for best practices for updating my sources.list (or ubuntu equivalent)06:26
christopherhow do I install Libre Office06:26
red2kiccritical_max: So you want to select a mirror closest to your location?06:26
critical_maxred2kic: yes, i have it located already.06:26
red2kiccritical_max: Okay. That's it?06:26
ubottuCurrent stable releases of Ubuntu use OpenOffice.org, and do not have supported packaging for LibreOffice. Ubuntu developers are working on packaging for Ubuntu Natty and backports for 10.10 and 10.04. See https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2011-January/032298.html for more information on progress and an unstable, unsupported PPA.06:27
critical_maxred2kic: yeah, that's it. about to upgrade to 10.10 and figured this was a good time to get that mirror specified. :)06:27
christopherthats just retarded because there are debs for it06:27
critical_maxThe last time I did it I was modifying sources.list directly.06:28
red2kiccritical_max: Ah. I always hate major upgrades. I favor clean install over it. It's just my opinion, but yeah. :)06:28
critical_maxWell I've had 4 trouble-free upgrades from 8.04 so far. Going to try to keep it going. :)06:28
critical_maxI hear ya though. I have had to nuke dotfiles more than once, I guess that's not "trouble free"...06:29
red2kiccritical_max: Just leave them alone. I understand that people want to have clean ~/ -- but you probably would be better off just leaving them alone. Heh.06:30
earthling_I'm trying to boot up an ubuntu live USB on a 2001 compaq desktop, won't recognize it on bootup, says "non system disk or disk error"06:30
earthling_how do I get it to recognize it?06:31
critical_maxred2kic, yeah I only had to do it because gnome had serious display bugs in panel etc on one of the less stable releases06:31
critical_max9.04 perhaps06:31
critical_maxred2kic, I think the proper way to do what I want is to add the mirror to Other Software Sources and deselect the main repo.06:31
SwedeMikeearthling_: are you sure it's even able to boot off of usb and that error isn't from the built in harddrive?06:31
ubuntuslm a06:31
critical_maxaccording to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AustralianTeam/LocalAptMirrors and other ubuntu docs06:31
earthling_SwedeMike, I'm not sure if it can, but I am able to change the boot order in bios to usb first06:32
earthling_SwedeMike, and there is no hard drive in the machine06:32
SwedeMikeearthling_: and it works in another machine?06:33
earthling_tried it long time ago06:33
earthling_seemed to work iirc06:33
critical_maxred2kic, yep! Now after I add that into Custom Software Sources, it doesn't actually appear there but is recognized as a main mirror, and shows up under Ubuntu Software tab under the "Download from:" dropdown.06:34
critical_maxWhich is sane behavior.06:34
critical_maxit is an official mirror after all.06:34
Twigmanhey guys, Just wondering, why does the popup menu for the tomboy icon look wrong?06:34
earthling_SwedeMike, are some old computer unable to boot from USB?06:34
SwedeMikeearthling_: can't think of something that might cause it, the error message you get means there isn't a boot block on the USB stick.06:34
TwigmanI use 'new wave' gtk theme and the popup menu has a repeating gradient in the background making it just look wrong06:34
saksham: i'm unable to clone a git repo through terminal06:35
sakshamcuz of some internet problems06:35
sakshamo I manually downladed the ta.gz from firefox06:35
sakshamafter going to the github site06:35
saksham will that be a problem?06:35
sakshamwhen you clone, you're just downloading the .tar.gz file, or is it more than that?06:35
DrMrHorsesaksham: it downloads the latest revisions into a folder in the place where you ran the command, uncompressed06:37
ubottuFirefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. Current versions of Ubuntu do not have it (see !latest), but there is an unofficial and unsupported PPA that you can use by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox06:37
critical_maxSweet, only 23 minutes to download 10.10 from the local mirror.06:38
critical_maxwith 2800 packages.06:38
sakshamdoes it also do anything additional?06:38
Twigmanoh shite! Sorry guys, I thought I was in the #tomboy channel haha06:38
Twigmanstupid xchat ;()06:38
* ActionParsnip bets ubottu hates firefox4 now06:39
DrMrHorsesaksham: it keeps some kind of record about the code so you can update it i think.  im not an expert on this...06:39
* critical_max thinks FF4 has elevated to metaquestion status06:39

earthling_SwedeMike, usb works on other computer06:40
taranI have loged into my ubuntu OS but also attahced another hard Disk having ubuntu installed. How can I access the root of the otehr hard disk?06:41
rwwActionParsnip: only requested 70 or so times thusfar :306:41
SwedeMikeearthling_: oki, then I have no idea. In my mind I am considering LBA mode as a culprit, but I don't know enough about it to say if might cause problem.06:41
earthling_perhaps this old comp has usb 1.106:41
earthling_I'm using a 3 month old usb drive06:42
earthling_or maybe some computers just don't like to boot from usb06:42
SwedeMikeearthling_: well, if it's in the boot order then it should be fine. How large is the USB drive? trying to remember what size problems came at what point in time, you might want to try a smaller one. Also, burning a CD always works :P06:43

jesmonHi all, I have been searching online but failed to find a result... I have an ubuntu system setup as a HTPC running xbmc.. I use a lenovo mini wireless keyboard to control the thing.. my problem is the keyboard doesnt have FN keys (F1-F12)... Which means if I want to switch to a virtual terminal I have to pull out the other keyboard.. is there a way to change the key combo that changes to the different TTY's??06:43
earthling_SwedeMike, 4 gb06:43
earthling_SwedeMike, CD did work, wanted ability to save changes though06:44
SwedeMikeearthling_: I'm out of ideas.06:44
earthling_ok, thanks anyway06:45
ActionParsnipjesmon: you can use xmodmap to set other keys to those functions06:46
ohsixthen he'll be left with the keys on the console to change06:46
critical_maxjesmon: would a virtual keyboard satisfy your needs?06:46
ohsixit wouldn't :D06:46
critical_maxjesmon: chvt may be part of a solution06:48
critical_maxit's going to be hackish though06:48
ohsixthat's a good suggestion actually06:48
critical_maxyou'd have to bind a key in Ubuntu preferences, to run a script, that when ran runs chvt, which probably requires root, and has been reported to not work with sudo06:48
critical_maxi'll mess with it, sec06:49
ohsixi use it regularly yet i forget ! D:06:49
jesmonI set up a keyboard shortcut to run 'chvt 2' and 'sudo chvt 2' - but it doesnt seem to do anything..06:49
critical_max"sudo chvt 1" just worked for me in a terminal. Passwordless sudo inside a script requires that you configure sudo06:49
ohsixyou need to use gksudo, sudo will exit if the controlling thing isn't a tty06:49
critical_max^ what he said for keyboard shortcut commands06:50
ohsixyou can edit your sudo configuration so you can run chvt without a password though06:50
ohsixnot sure what the implications are, aside from being able to annoy the console user :D06:50
taranwhat is the meaning of this mount: /media/mainstorage is not a block device?06:50
ohsixman 5 sudoers06:51
critical_maxjesmon, "sudo visudo" and uncomment the line that talks about no password, if you want to test it. if it's a multiuser system you will want to specify things properly, but that's the way to do it.06:51
v_vtaran: show your mount cmd06:51
jesmonahh gksudo worked! thanks... I will look into how to do it without password (noob!)06:51
critical_maxjesmon, you'd also need to be in the sudo group for that to work.06:51
critical_maxas mentioned in visudo :)06:51
ohsixjesmon: man 5 suoders :D06:52
critical_maxit's useful for giving some sudo out, but not others: letting web developers restart apache on a dev server, but not restart the whole server, etc06:52
ohsixsudoers even, it lets you set user -> command mappings, and what to do with them06:52
taranv_v: i tried this sudo mount mainstorage/ /mnt06:52
jesmonexcellent.. you guys are awesome! thank you so much!06:52
v_vtaran: the first arg of mount usually is a device06:53

v_vtaran: 'mount' and you can see it07:04
critical_maxtaran: normally you don't have to do that for most tasks, but for being in a directory owned by root, you have to be root. you can "sudo ls" and stay out of the directory to get around that.07:04

abstrakti don't think it works without a space in dos either07:34
nixjrthe nvidia thing in ubuntu detected my monitro automatically and adjusted the resolution to suit, very pleased, just a pitty about the osd as you called it07:34
HoseinActionParsnip,: oh funny!07:34
ActionParsnipnixjr: use nvidia-settings to correct the setting07:34
nixjrActionParsnip, thats preferable over adjusting it via the osd?07:35
ActionParsnipHosein: yep. Super confusing if you flip between both07:35
HoseinI must ask dos developers to change it according to linux!!07:36
ActionParsnipnixjr: not sure about preferable. If it works, use it07:36
jiltdilsudo apt-get install -f   and sudo apt-get -f install  what does these command say07:36
Samuel2i'm getting kernal 2.6.35-28.4907:37

Anyone know y or how to fix it?07:51
Mogsuhm i'm on it now? I only have Ubuntu 10.10 on this - not really an issues logging onto it, it's restarting/shutting down07:52
MamontinHi, sorry for my english, If I have a processor with "SMT (Hyperthreading) scheduler support" do I need to "Multi-core scheduler support". Very grateful.07:53
StarminnMogs: Oh. Hmm... I remember having a similar issue, myself (you press "Shut down" but it never shuts down till you hit the power button, yourself), but I don't recall what I did to fix it. I think it just started working one day, honestly.07:53
MogsYeah that's the problem Starminn07:53
MogsI read, try and edit /etc/default/grub - but when i did so nothing changed - and now it's telling me ''permission denied'' when I use that command =/07:54
ravenunison tells me "lost connection" again and again: Uncaught exception Not_found - how to repair?07:55
j_hnmogs: I think you can do sudo <some editor> file07:55
Salih-kj_hn: i have the same problems07:56
StarminnMogs: Certainly understandable. HAve you tried post #9 here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1594326 ?07:56
MogsOh, sorry new to Ubuntu and using all the commands etc. - hmm let me check, ty07:56
j_hnsalih-k: Damb it man, I'm not looking for the same prob...I'm looking for a new answere07:56
StarminnMogs: Yeah, anything outside of /home/<yourUSER> you don't have permissions to, so you need sudo to gain them07:56
MogsAh - if you mean the acpi=force then yeah that's what I changed, nothing happened07:57
j_hnsalih-k: am really frustrated. Have been using ubuntu for years. No prob. except when I do things I know i should not...now uggggg!07:58
tmwnni installed ubuntu 10.04 on a two partition drive (ubuntu & win 7) - when I try to install the java plugin for firefox it fails giving me the msg "fix broken plugins". How do I do that?07:58
StarminnMogs: *shakes head* No, Post #9. (The post numbers are on the top right.) Try your original thing with GRUB first though. This seems a little hacky.07:59
StarminnMogs: Just remember to use "sudo" whenever doing anything outside of your Home folder.07:59

j_hnand then reinstall?08:02
Starminnj_hn: Isn't ir << sudo apt-get purge <packagename> >>?08:02
Starminnj_hn: OR does purge only kill configs and not uninstall the actual app?08:03
tmwnnwhat package would I uninstall ?08:03
j_hncould be. I'll try and find it.08:03
j_hnWhat did you install?08:03

StarminnGreenCurry: Install "Compiz Config Settings Manager" from Software Center and then install Emerald08:12
GreenCurryStarminn how do i enable compiz?08:12
ohsixemerald is the old window decorator with its own themes, you can use the themes with transparency with the gtk window decorator08:13
GreenCurryokay, how do i enable gtk transparency?08:13
StarminnGreenCurry: Do you have it installed?08:13

ohsixuse the appearance applet to change it to "Extra", and use ccsm or simple-ccsm to edit the settings08:14
ouyesit says Could not mark all packages for installation or upgrade08:15
Starminnohsix: If you're changing the title bars from Metacity to Compiz then your method won't work.08:16
ouyeswhat is wrong, why I cannot install the package, libqt4-gui?08:16
ohsixmy "method" enables compiz for your session, instead of just replacing it one time08:16
Starminnohsix: When I want Metacity I "metacity --replace" and when I want transparent window title bars I do "compiz --replace" with Compiz using Emerald as the window decorator.08:17
ohsixthe rest is done in ccsm and with the theme08:17

ohsixlinux-wireless wiki is de-facto on what's supported08:40
ohsixotherwise its vendor drivers and al up in the air08:40
brophatand then it works for maybe 1/2 hour then doesn't work for a while08:41
brophatit is just flaky08:41
critical_maxElektroid: nothing broke though. and it was my choice to upgrade, because it's a system where things can break. I would have stayed on LTS were it a server.08:41

hirogenhow much is left if i remove 17.5% from 300.80pounds ?09:06
critical_maxbrophat, Woot, found a 10.10 "Fixed" thread. We will be modifying the blacklist to keep the 2800 drivers from loading. See here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=158955509:06
oCeanhirogen: wrong channel09:06
hirogengod damn just a 1 off question09:06
Starminnilea: I don't know of any. As far as I know Yahoo! doesn't even have file transfer support on any of them on Ubuntu. (Then again I've only tried a few, though)09:06
Starminnhirogen: Control the language please. Family-friendly. :)09:06
oCeanhirogen: mind your language in this channel09:06
critical_maxbrophat, "sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf"09:06
taranI have two disks accessible and a folder named New Folder. I want to check if it belongs to master disk or Slave Disk. How do I do that?09:07
brophatok will do09:07
critical_maxbrophat, lets jump in msg to not spam with the details of the solution :)09:07
DrMrHorselol hirogen09:07
ohsixbrophat: you should try the driver backports before you blacklist stuff, it could be fixed already09:07
Starminnjiltdilt: Kill those "file:/blah/blah/blah"09:08
ileawhat aplication exists for linux that can suport audio video calling and exists for windows too?09:08
Starminnjiltdilt: I've never seen anything like that and I know I certainly don't have them, That's quite odd.09:08
Starminnilea: Pidgin.09:08
ileapidgin dosnt work i tryed it09:08
ohsixpidgin doesn't video calls09:09
Starminnohsix: Oh, right, video. >.>09:09
jiltdilStarminn: thats the mmatter i amso frustereted09:09
Starminnilea: Skype is an option. Not sure how well it fairs on Linux, thogh. Never tried09:09
ohsixapparently it can do voice and video with gmail/google talk though09:09
Starminnjiltdilt: So try unchecking them.09:10
Starminnohsix: That's what I was thinking of. I forgot ti was only for Google though09:10
ohsixso you can use gtalk for pidgin -> pidgin, or pidgin -> gtalk, or gmail if the plugin is loaded09:10
taranI am logged in a system having another disk visble to me.How casn I install new OS on this slave disk without logging out09:10
ririkhi. is this the right channel for installation vs hardware issues?09:10
oCeanririk: if it's about an ubuntu installation, you can certainly try here09:11
ubottuPlease give at least an overview of your problem *here* (all in one line) - you will get a much greater audience. If you have to use more than 3 lines, please use http://paste.ubuntu.com09:11
ririkoCean: yes, it is. thanks. i am trying to install karmic koala on a vaio p (those little netbooks w/o a cd drive). i am trying to install it from a USB drive, however it keeps booting into the HD installation of Ubuntu, which hangs up on the login screen.09:13
=== shadow is now known as Guest42198
jnlsnl_hi, im new to linux, will programs line "gnome planner" work in natty with unity and all ?09:14
Starminnjnlsnl_: Natty support is in #ubuntu+109:14
jnlsnl_ok Starminn09:14
Starminnjnlsnl_: They'd know better than we. ;)09:14
ririkI changed the bios settings to boot from external device, and it worked perfectly when i previously installed ubuntu on it.09:14
no--nameanybody know how to make it so certain applications start maximised?09:16
Starminnririk: Have you, upon turning on your computer, gone to where you can choose your bootable medium (F12 on most Dells) and hit USB?09:16
oCeanririk: I have hardly any experience using usb installer. But I wonder why you use a 1,5 year old version, which will be out of support in a month or so09:16
Starminnno--name: When you close it, close it maximized?09:16
ririkit started hanging up on the login screen after i updated ubuntu, so i:m guessing the update messed up the drivers somehow09:16
Starminnno--name: It "remembers".09:16
no--nameStarminn: doesn't work with everything.09:17
ririkStarminn: yes, i have tried that09:17
brophatok critical_max09:17
brophatdo we need to check something?09:17
brophatthe wifi came right up this time09:17
brophatbut sometimes it does that too09:17
critical_maxbrophat, yeah let's check "lsmod | grep rt" again, pastebin please09:17
critical_maxbrophat, that sounds encouraging!09:17
ohsixno--name: you can use something like devilspie to do window matching and make certain things always maximized, among other things09:18
ohsixno--name: your window manager might already be able to do such a thing, too; like compiz09:18
no--namethanks ohsix,  I'll check it out09:18
brophatcritical_max http://pastebin.com/BL60qZFx09:19
Starminnno--name: Indeed. In Compiz it's "Window Rules" at the bottom.09:19
brophatcritical_max looks like it is still loading no?09:19
no--nameI don't use compiz... Devilspie seems to be doing the trick though09:20
StarminnYeah, if you don't use it then don't bother. Way overkill, haha09:20
darkexHi, I have a script I've put in /etc/init.d which is called ipv6.sh, and I'd like that script to autoload after networking on startup/reboot, how would I accomplish that?09:20
critical_maxbrophat, one more pastebin: "tail -20 /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf"09:20
StarminnMost people do though, so I was just throwing it out there09:20
dr0idhi, I want to know what BNC is , and how can I use it, anyone ? :)09:20
darkexdr0id, BouNCer, keeps your conneciton to IRC alive09:21
JonesNHHi how do I install wordpress?09:21
JonesNH'apt-get install wordpress'09:21
dr0idright, I just know that much :P09:21
dr0idJonesNH: lol, no09:21
JonesNHdr0id: why not?09:21
dr0idyou have to download the package and  follow the 5 min guide09:21
brophatcritical_max http://pastebin.com/A1bS1y1s09:21
critical_maxbrophat, also pastebin "modinfo rt2800lib" if it's more than one line please09:21
dr0idi.e., get the config right, and then open it in browser. it has an inbuilt installer09:21
ravenISO-file contains filenames like this: "file.end;1" how to repair?09:22
StarminnJonesNH: Yes. http://packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/web/ Down in "w" yeah09:22

brophatcritical_max http://pastebin.com/N1EXgJvk09:23
StarminnJonesNH: (That's a list of all packages pertaining to Web. That site, thought, lists all packages so when in doubt you can check it.)09:23

newbie01hi all, whats the command line to see what computers are on my network?09:23
=== Gwar is now known as Guest84222
JonesNHStarminn: so it is possible?09:23
Starminn!packages | JonesNH09:23
ubottuJonesNH: You can browse and search for Ubuntu packages using !Synaptic, !KPackageKit, !Adept, "apt-cache search <keywords or regex>", or online at http://packages.ubuntu.com - Ubuntu has about 20000 packages available, so please *search* for an official package before installing things in awkward ways!09:23
dr0idwow, wordpress was available via apt-get, interesting09:24
=== Guest84222 is now known as Gwarz
JonesNHso dr0id was wrong09:24
StarminnJonesNH: Yeah, according to Ubuntu.com the package for wordpress is "wordpress"09:24
JonesNHis there not a way to specify where u want a packagge installed with apt-get?09:24
ririkcan usb drives from different manufacturers behave differently in that some of them fail to work as bootable devices while others don:t?09:25
StarminnJonesNH: It takes care of all of that for you by default, but I don't know about telling it where to go. I know what you're trying to do and I remember when I installed Apache it went all over the place.09:25
StarminnJonesNH: Try this: http://nixcraft.com/ubuntu-debian/14489-how-does-apt-get-install-work.html09:26
JonesNHStarminn: will installing that package automatically configure apache for wordpress destination?09:26
JonesNHor not09:26
StarminnJonesNH: I don't know. I don't use Wordpress -- I use my own backends (though my needs are quite basic)09:27
StarminnJonesNH: The link I just gave you was intended to kind of make you think, "Well, I could take each step menually myself" which would let you install where you wanted (just not with "apt-get)09:27
newbie01hi all, whats the command line to see what computers are on my network?09:27
smwnewbie01, the only way to do that is do a network scan09:28
smwnewbie01, google nmap09:28
ohsixor arp -an, if the computer has done anything in that segment09:28
oCeansmw: don't suggest google here, thanks09:28
smwoCean, why not?09:28
Starminn!google | smw09:29
ubottusmw: While Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.09:29
ohsixif people could google their problems away they wouldn't be here, it's simple09:29
oCeansmw: that is never helpful.09:29
ravenISO-file contains filenames like this: "file.end;1" how to repair?09:29
=== chmod is now known as istok
smwoCean, Starminn, I gave what to look up! It is not the same as saying "go google it yourself"09:29
sacarlsonJonesNH: did you look at this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WordPress ?09:29
slim_charlesdoes any one know of any software which will allow me to acces my files, mostly pictures from the webt, i have like 80 gb of them09:30
StarminnJonesNH: And actually Canonical agreed to help Google with making the ChromeOS, so no, far from it09:30
slim_charleslike i was thinking an ftp like one09:30
slim_charleswith thumbnails09:30
oCeansmw: don't suggest it here.09:30
smwoCean, Starminn, telling him to lookup nmap is legitimate help.09:30
oCeansmw: not in this channel thank you09:30
Starminnsmw: And it's not the same as saying, "Oh, here's a link to what you're looking for."09:30
ohsixslim_charles: you could mount the ftp, and view the files in nautilus09:30
newbie01smw, thanks09:31
slim_charleswell i want to view them when im not home09:31
smwnewbie01, yw09:31
slim_charlesit would be too much of a hassle to upload 60gb +\09:31
slim_charlesare there any image databasing solutions09:32
ohsixtheres flickr09:32
JonesNHSo where does 'wordpress' install to?09:32
JonesNHIf i install the package using apt09:32
ohsixbut if you're putting files on the web to access them remotely, you can't get around uploading them09:32
smwJonesNH, dpkg --listfiles package09:32
ohsixJonesNH: dpkg -L wordpress after its installed09:33
sacarlsonJonesNH: did you not read the link? sudo ln -s /usr/share/wordpress /var/www/wordpress09:33
oCeanJonesNH: /usr/share/wordpress most likely09:33
newbie01smw,  If im logged into the network through ssh is nmap still the only way09:33
slim_charlesohsix, heres my end goal,   have only thumbnails while viewing them online, and if i want to pull on up then i would have to download it09:33
smwnewbie01, you can not "login to a network"09:34
JonesNHsacarlson: ?09:34
JonesNHls -s?09:34
smwnewbie01, something like nmap is the only way09:34
newbie01smw,  a computer on the network09:34
newbie01i dont have control to sudo apt09:34
sacarlsonJonesNH: you have another question?09:34
=== Gwar is now known as Guest8849
smwnewbie01, the only way is to test every ip and see if it works.09:34
smwnewbie01, nmap does that.09:35
ohsixarp -an too09:35
sacarlsonJonesNH: ln = symbolic link09:35
newbie01smw, ok thanks for the help09:35
JonesNHsacarlson: why?09:36
smwsacarlson, ln -s is symbolic link. ln is just "link"09:36
smwJonesNH, symbolic means it points to the real file09:36
JonesNHdo I have to do some chown/chmod'ing to get wordpress to show on web? i've pointed apache's documentroot to /usr/share/wordpress09:36
sacarlsonJonesNH: that's where wordpress is installed so you link it to apache2 with sybolic link https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WordPress   see this for details09:36
JonesNHsmw: so what would a regular link be?09:36
smwJonesNH, a hard link is a link where both files point to the same inode09:37
abstraktJonesNH, http://gog.is/hard/link09:37
smwJonesNH, neither one is more real than the other09:37
ohsixabstrakt: o man you did a bad09:37
JonesNHso things pointing to file2 do not know they're being sent to file1, with -s?09:37
JonesNHbut they do with no -s09:37
smwother way around09:38
smw-s means that a program can tell it is being redirected09:38
ohsixand works on directories09:38
ohsixand can cross filesystems09:38
JonesNHdo I have to do some chown/chmod'ing to get wordpress to show on web? i've pointed apache's documentroot to /usr/share/wordpress09:38
smwJonesNH, there is no good reason for a hardlink ;-)09:39
ravenISO-file contains filenames like this: "file.end;1" how to repair?09:39
ohsixJonesNH: thats not the right way to do it D:09:39
ejvwouldn't web server problems be better addressed in #httpd ?09:39
sacarlsonJonesNH: after the sybolic link is create it fails ?  or did you fail to create the sybolic link?09:39
smwJonesNH, wordpress is not something you should install from apt.09:39
JonesNHi didnt create one09:39
JonesNHi just set apache to /usr/share/wordress09:39
ohsixexcept when you do, apt will install security fixes09:40
smwohsix, true09:40
oCeansmw: sure you can. wp is in the repositories09:40
smwoCean, I know it is09:40
smwoCean, so is mediawiki09:40
sacarlsonJonesNH: did you not use the apt-get method to install wordpress?09:40
sacarlsonJonesNH: if not you may need to look into apparmor to get apache2 to allow that wordpress directory access09:41
ohsixi'd be looking at how ubuntu does virtualhosting and how you're expected to be able to use the installed files09:42
smwsacarlson, wait, how would apparmor help?09:42
sacarlsonsmw: I think apache2 is under the apparmor restricted list, am I wrong?09:43
ohsixapparmor has restrictions for apache, or something09:43
ejvblind leading the blind09:43
ohsixspeak up friend09:44
oCeanJonesNH: usually after installing such packages, the installer should create a blah.conf in /etc/apache2/conf.d pointing to the correct location09:44
StarminnMy system doesn't like Hibernating. Tips?09:44
ohsixStarminn: does it like suspending09:44
Starminnohsix: Not sure. *tries*09:45
* quiescens waves Starminn goodbye09:45
ejvapparmor status can be invoked via apparmor_status but i seriously doubt anything is being enforced with regard to apache09:45
ohsixStarminn: if it does, make sure you have swap, and its uiid matches RESUME in initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume09:45
ohsixthat is, /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume09:45
Starminnohsix: Oh, nevermind. IT does. Everything's fine. I just got Hibernate and Suspend mixed up.09:46
Starminnohsix: I've always done that. It is my opinion that they should be switched. :)09:46
ohsixStarminn: if it does, make sure you have swap, and its uuid matches RESUME in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume09:46
csenger41hey everyone09:46
Starminnohsix: Wait, what is hibernate supposed to do?09:47
ohsixStarminn: suspend to disk09:47
csenger41ive got a weird problem, anyone could help me? :S09:47
sacarlsonsmw: I was not totaly correct about apparmor as I look at sudo apparmor_status  apache2 isn't in it but mysql is so that's why I think I noted the problem before09:47
ejv!ask | csenger4109:47
ubottucsenger41: Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)09:47
smw!ask | csenger4109:47

csenger41i mean gmail, google search, youtube09:49
Starminnohsix: What is hibernate supposed to do?09:49
csenger41but everything else yes09:49
ohsixStarminn: suspend to disk09:49
Starminnohsix: OH, sorry. :)09:49
csenger41only restart helps, neither reconnect to internet nor log out-log in09:50
Starminnohsix: When I "hibernate" I have to restart my computer from scratch. BIOS screen and all.09:50
ohsixhttps://help.ubuntu.com/10.04/serverguide/C/httpd.html hur09:50
ohsixStarminn: does the uuid for your swap match the one in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume09:50
Starminnohsix: How do I check?09:51
csenger41any suggestion for my problem?09:51
ohsixflail about wildly, then look at the contents of the file, and blkid, or /etc/fstab09:51
Starminnohsix: One sec, I need to ctake care of something totally unrelated09:52
marekw2143hi, when will next LTS ubuntu be released?09:52
ohsixme too, sleep09:52
ejvcsenger41: you've ruled out upstream issues, like bad DNS lookups on your network and/or from your provider, malfuntioning networking equipment, etc.09:53
JonesNHdoes wordpress need to be installed as root?09:53
ejvhard to say if that's actually an ubuntu issue and not something else ;)09:53
red2kicmarekw2143: 12.04?09:53

vietredhow many people around you use ubuntu as their main OS?09:54
ohsix!poll | vietred09:54
ubottuvietred: Usually, there is no single "best" application to perform a given task. It's up to you to choose, depending on your preferences, features you require, and other factors. Do NOT take polls in the channel. If you insist on getting people's opinions, ask BestBot in #ubuntu-bots.09:54
smwJonesNH, wordpress does not need to be installed as root.09:54
DOOX0.001 %09:54
marekw2143red2kic: yes09:54
smwvietred, I do.09:55
csenger41anyone else any suggestion? :(09:56
sacarlsonsmw: JonesNH: it would if you used th apt-get method to install it09:56
smwsacarlson, true...09:56
critical_maxcsenger41, the site "downforeveryoneorjustme.com" is actually quite relevant to your question.09:56
sacarlsonJonesNH: if you didn't use apt-get to install wordpress then I guess you will have to install the dependances manualy like mysql and ??09:58

navin_zvacet:how can i update it?10:44
XoDnavin_: you have to know the device. easiest way if not: use 'dmesg' and look at output some seconds after putting in the card10:44

dydis it case sensitive?10:47

ikoniaBajK: where did you get firefox 4 from11:51
BajKikonia: auto-update11:51
istokdyd, yeah, it's a command to search, but it should have atleast returned a few programs you could use to analyze your network11:51
ikoniaBajK: what version of ubuntu11:51
typerhackikonia: the process goes but in the end when i check the rymastersys folder ther is no iso in the process it says: cannot vreat the iso file11:51
ikoniaBajK: firefox 4 is not in 10.1011:51
tuxx_i'm having some issues with gdm crashing on boot.. it only happens sporadically... i think it might have someting to do with drivers loading too late... so X cant start..11:51

* BajK is hoping for Canonical to ditch the stupid browser that will become the Internet Explorer 6 of the present aka Firefox and use a decent WEBKIT (because WEBKIT is the future) browser, such as Chromium or better: Rekonq but well Canonical also tries to fix a entirely broken thing (Gnome) by creating its own broken thing (Unity) instead of just ditching that middle age GTK stuff and use the supieror KDE instead11:52

jribgrenadecx-Ascend: no, for the services that are still using sysv-init scripts, you can use sysv-rc-conf.  But for upstart there is no such tool.  Remember, with upstart services start after certain events fire.  You'd have to read /etc/init/*.conf.  However, if you run "initctl list" you'll get the current status of the services.  That may be sufficient for you12:03

dbkblkamalgama, i don't know if it's possible because DE need some apps that are trully integrated. But, with gnome, there is gnome-core, so you might find equivalent for others DE12:34

amalgamajrib, dbkblk: ok ok, so, for example, for gnome, just the DE is the gnome-core package??? Thanx, thats what i wanted, a basic step on how to start looking.. If it has just the basic apps I am ok, but i wouldnt want to download kde and have eg amarok on my laptop12:36

ZULOyes terry13:13
terryZULO: Oh that is what you are trying to do, share the internet that is received by wlan0   Right?13:13

jiltdilmy install button in s/w center is not working  but when i use gksudo it works the problem arises from last two days elp me to fix it?'13:15
dmizerjiltdil what happens if you run: sudo apt-get update&& sudo apt-get upgrade13:15
ZULOi saw that, but when i turn on my eth0 i lose internet in my wifi interface13:16
terryZULO: But the bottom line is that you have to use a different IP subnet for the other Network Interface.13:16
sacarlsonZULO: you need to make sure that the address won't conflict13:16
dmizeri get no sound on my laptop in 10.04 with AD198x Analog (N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller)13:16
jiltdildmizer:the last line is N: Ignoring file 'apt-build' in directory '/etc/apt/sources.list.d/' as it has no filename extension13:17
jiltdil  and above this all line  is starting with hit13:17
terryZULO: Yes, as sacarlson says, make sure there is not an IP address conflict.13:17
sacarlsonZULO: since your wlan0 address must come from a dhcp server you must use that and setup an address on eth0 that won't conflict13:17
ruanwhatever i do, i can't change the friendly name of my bluetooth device. i've tried bluetooth and blueman, how can i change it?13:17

dmizerjiltdil that's your problem, search google for a fix for your error.13:17
ruanwhen i change it, it shows up differently, but it changes back when i restart the device13:18
ZULOokey, ill try now. Thanks for all, ill come with results :)13:18
jiltdildmizer:help me13:18
jribtyreza: ggVG I guess...13:18
terryZULO: You can also use a firewall script and use a firewall generator to write the script for you.  See:  http://easyfwgen.morizot.net/gen/13:18
sacarlsonZULO: this is your wlan0 address  so your eth0 can be  or anything other than 192.168.1.x13:18
KeithChesterI need an open source solution to taking a power point presentation, record someone talking over it, and then saving it as a video. i know theres a program that does it but its name is completely escaping me right now...13:18
jribterry: you should run "vimtutor" so you become familiar with the basics of vim (if you want to do such a thing).  You could just use a different editor of course.  In any case, you can copy with: ggyG13:19
ruanit works awesomely while my name is changed though hmm13:19
dmizerjiltdil did you manually edit any repositories?13:19
terryZULO: If you use the IPs that sacarlson suggests, you will need to use netmask of on each13:19
sacarlsonterry: I should write a share script for people to make it even easier13:19
dmizerjiltdil undo what you did.13:19
terryjrib: I think you spoke to wrong nick.13:20
