ActionParsnipBelial`: if GPUs can clock up and down like regular CPUs, its a much sleeker solution00:21
Belial`ActionParsnip, they can. but onboard solutions still use less power than a dedicated gpu with power management.00:21
Brosephedbian : 02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4401-B0 100Base-TX (rev 02)00:21
Broseph02:03.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4318 [AirForce One 54g] 802.11g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 02)00:21
ActionParsnipBelial`: its as smart as having 2 CPUs in the system, 1 fast and 1 slow....00:21
edbianBroseph: This is a bcm4318.00:22
Belial`ActionParsnip, that's actually a terrible analogy.00:22
edbianBroseph: Fully supported.00:22
ActionParsnipBelial`: why, they are both processing units, one is justfor graphics00:22
edbianBroseph: Let's see if you can manually place the firmware in /lib/firmware/b4300:22
Belial`ActionParsnip, so you're saying nvidia, intel, amd, and ati00:22
Belial`(which is amd)00:22
philipp_Logan_ well you guys know the answer... you just dont tell me...00:23
Belial`are wasting their time?00:23
Belial`because their dedicated solutions are just as good downclocked00:23
Brosephedbian: alright, do you have the link to the firmware on hand?00:23
edbianBroseph: I'm trying to find it00:23
ActionParsnipBelial`: no, they should make their units clock up and down just like CPUs do, saves users having to manually change their video chip manually, the system can detect the speed needed (just like cool n quiet) and use more or less power automatically00:24
j5hi, i have trouble with firefox 4 and flash-- theres lots of weird flickering and white blocks and bad mouse interactiveness, any ideas?00:24
Belial`ActionParsnip,  they do. it's called power management. something the opensource drivers don't have.00:24
Bilzhello. trying to work my mic on my acer 5738 laptop. i got it to work now but its really noisy ( i can hear my recordings... ) any ideas? trying to play around with alsakmixer but not really sure what i need to play around with in it00:24
Belial`but even with power management it still uses more juice than onboard.00:24
BrosephStep 2.On a computer with Internet access, download the required firmware files from http://downloads.openwrt.org/sources/wl_apsta- and http://mirror2.openwrt.org/sources/broadcom-wl-
Brosephfrom https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx00:25
indrajeethow to download ubuntu tweak?00:25
ActionParsnipBelial`: then they should invest more into power management so it uses less00:25
indrajeet how to download ubuntu tweak?00:25
xanguaindrajeet: go to ubuntu tweak web and read the instructions00:25
Xubuntunoobi was wondering how to download ubuntu tweak too00:25

ActionParsnipBelial`: the switching thing is a cheap workaround00:26
ActionParsnipindrajeet: http://ubuntu-tweak.com/00:26
Belial`ActionParsnip, clock speeds aren't everything. they'd have to literally cripple the hardware to do that.00:26
edbianBroseph: Did you see the blue screen asking about firmware?00:26
ingiI have a proplem w/ pksc 11 not login in ff4!!! plz help00:26
edbianBroseph: Try installing: sudo apt-get install bcm43xx00:26
Belial`ActionParsnip, maybe you need to read up a little more.00:26
ActionParsnipBelial`: its a cheap workaround, but if companies will support it then it's fine00:27
Brosephedbian - no, no blue sreen00:27
Brosephno bcm43xx package found00:28
Belial`ActionParsnip, cpu makers are giving their cpus integrated graphics, graphic makers are making dedicated cpus and writing drivers to switch to the onboard gpus to save battery life. that's a cheap workaround opposed to crippling the dedicated hardware and nullifying the entire point of dedicated hardware?00:28
Belial`i'm sorry, dedicated gpus*00:28

Wickedxangua, i now am.00:31
Belial`nvidia doesn't want to support it on linux and x.org developers don't want to make it work either.00:31
Wickedxangua, and its *still* not00:31
edbianBroseph: And, can you show me what is in /lib/firmware/b43/   ?00:31
ActionParsnipBelial`: moan to the manufacturers, they may get enoughh voices and support it00:31

philipp_where the hell do i have to write my /.htaccess to enable mod_rewrite?00:35
ActionParsnipBelial`: if you sit in a corner and moan that stuff doesn't work or stuff isn't how you like it and make zero change then its pretty poor. If you get up and make changes and try and make things better then things may change, they may not00:35
Bilzhello. trying to work my mic on my acer 5738 laptop. i got it to work now but its really noisy ( i can hear my recordings... ) any ideas? trying to play around with alsakmixer but not really sure what i need to play around with in it00:36

Belial`so what do you mean?00:36
ingi(Error code: ssl_error_token_insertion_removal) can sobody help plz?00:36

vatzecHey :-) I'm using the newest stable version of Ubuntu and I'm using the ambiance theme (the one with the window buttons on the left by default), however what annoys me is that there is no window icon displayed in this theme. Is there any way I can fix it while still using this theme? It's very cool.01:13
vatzec"New Wave" (another bundled theme) does display icons by default01:14
NeT_DeMoNHi, is there anyone who can assist me in a chroot install of ubuntu?01:14
ThomasB2kVatzec, a program called Ubuntu Tweak allows you to add the icon back and do a lot of other cool stuff as well01:14

pfifoNeT_DeMoN, well, i learned how to chroot install by doing the LiveCD customization guide, but before I even started I knew all the ins and outs of building a working linux system. I am not sure if there is a up to date guide, but if you understand the process and know what the commands your running actually do, a walkthrough shouldnt be needed01:21

meLonfermulator, Snooter .  All computers have winbind installed01:43

ariel_pfifo: that works, t/y but it's not quite the same as before.01:43
meLonfermulator, that would only need to be on the CLIENT/ping'er correct?  I haven't made any modifications to that file on any pc and I can still ping them01:44
StepNjumpHi guys, does any one know of a good proxy server I could be running off my Ubuntu desktop?01:44

[thor]Hello there, i am using ubuntu 10.10, and i would like to create a custom launcher in my games menu. I wish to launch a file called 'brogue' which is, according to ' file brogue ' is: brogue: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.15, not stripped.  Now, when i create a new launcher, and point it to the brogue file, nothing happens. When i wish to r01:49
[thor]un it from a command line, i need to type ' ./brogue ' while i am in the proper folder. tl;dr::: How do i create a launcher in the Applications -> Games menu that launches ./brogue ?01:49
meLonfermulator, not 100% sure what you mean.  I just installed samba on the machines.  I can access some of them by hostname.  I cannot access one by the hostname01:49
pfifoStepNjump, if everyone involved is running linux, ssh's -D option will be quick and efficient01:49
StepNjumpspirals, yes I figured! Is it hard to secure it well for someone who is not familiar with those? Should I put up a firewall?01:49
meLonfermulator, I just have a bunch of ubuntu machines and one windows machine (that is my brother's)01:49
StepNjumpYes I was planning to run ssh01:49
fermulatormeLon: as I re-read that post I sent you, I recall now that winbind is /not/ the answer (even if it might work).  Apparently any system with samba installed, should properly handle netBIOS name resolution now01:50
spiralsStepNjump, as long as you don't allow anonymous/open connections, that's the key01:50
fermulatormeLon: capscrew has some good details in that thread01:50
StepNjumpawsome ok!01:50
spiralsStepNjump, otherwise you'll end up on those big lists of 'free proxies', and some guy will come into this channel and complain that he can't attack another server via ssh with your proxy, or something ;)01:51
induzhas anyone used WritersTools for OOffice??01:51
induzits installed but i dont know how to use it01:52
meLonfermulator, Dude, I'm sorry for not doing what you said earlier.  The problem was that wins was not listed under nsswitch.conf.  That makes *NO SENSE* because it would resolve some of them, but not ONE.  Oh well.  It works now :\01:52

bmkI have a question regarding grub, I have two hard drives installed, one I had previously installed KUBUNTU on, and then today I installed the new hard drive and installed ubuntu 10.10 on it.  I want to reformat the other hard drive to just use as storage space, but I am not sure if the grub menu is on that hard drive, or on the new hard drive and I dont want to reformat the old hard drive and screw something up02:26
eamonbmk: grub is in your MBR02:27
dsnydersbmk, first things first.  Do you have a livecd02:27
pfifobmk, disconnect the old drive and see what happens02:27
bmkI have the livecd, yes.  I think I should try that though, disconnecting the old drive and see what happens... that makes sense02:27
Goliathhey does ubuntu/kubuntu 10.10 livedvd contain grub1 (i want to use grub-install command)?02:28
eamonno just reformat it. It's in the master boot record which wont be formatted02:28
eamonbmk: no if you disconnect you won't be able to access the MBR02:28
eamonjust reformat it02:28
dsnydersbmk, you may need to check in your bios as to which drive the machine boots from.02:28
PolarinaAre there any logs on connection attempts made to me by the Remote Desktop tool?02:28
bmkI will still have the hard drive connected with Ubuntu 10.10 installed, just not the old hard drive with kubuntu on it02:29
ThatGuyOverThereeamon: So what do I need to do to etc/rc.local?02:29
eamonjust reformat it dude, grub is on the MBR and that won't be formatted02:29

ThatGuyOverTherepfifo: I already tried adding the commands and the script is executable. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.02:32

pfifomu, possibly try running 'sudo apt-get update'02:32
spirals[thor], great!02:32
mupfifo: That was the command I used to spawn those errors02:33
spirals[thor], did you end up having to do the launcher script?02:33
spiralsor just the full path in launcher02:33
pfifoThatGuyOverThere, if these commands dont return right awaym youll need to add a '&' at the end to make them go into the background, and 'exit 0' makes the script end, so if the commands are after that, their not getting run.02:34
rwwmu: You're getting those errors because Intrepid/8.10 reached end of life status in April 2010 and thus its repositories have been removed from the mirror system. See the message ubottu's about to give you.02:34

coz_Opiniee,   well generally  a sugo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade should do it as I recall but let me check I have it installed02:37
FransWillemHi, I just installed MythBuntu on a system with a Radeon 9800 Pro, and now just after the splash screen the screen goes and stays black. SSH works, but I can't seem to get it to show anything. During the installation I was given the choice between open source and AMD drivers where I picked the AMd drivers.02:37
FransWillemWould anyone be able to help me troubleshoot this from the command line ?02:37
rcconfOpiniee: wait ..02:38
smwFransWillem, is mythbuntu still under development?02:38
Opinieercconf: ok02:38
edbianFransWillem: heck yes.  Are you booted into the system right now?02:38
coz_Opiniee,   also under  Advanced in the gui of clamav  there is a tick box to update definitions on start up02:38
Opinieecoz_: thanks02:38
FransWillemedbian: Yes, and I am able to log in through SSH02:38
FransWillemsmw: It had a download link for 10.10, so I suppose it is02:38
rcconfOpiniee: open a terminal and type this to add PPA: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-clamav/ppa02:38
Opinieecoz_: but it doesn't update the virus engine, does it?02:39

Opinieerrconf: ok02:39
coz_Opiniee,  yes it should02:39
mspongeI installed Ubuntu on a Lenovo laptop that dual boots windows and has a system recovery partition. I need to access to system recovery partition but i'm not sure how to do it with grub (F11 no longer works at boot up). I can root the drive, but can't find the kernel for boot to work. Can someone help?02:39
coz_Opiniee,  do you have clamtk I think it is installed,,,the front end?02:39
FransWillemedbian: Nothing. fglrx wasn't even installed at first, but dmesg seems to indicate it's loading a 'radeon' driver instead :/02:39
rcconfOpiniee: that PPA is to update the antivirus not the GUI... if you wantto update GUI go to clamatk website download and upgrade manually using the .deb file02:39
pfifomsponge, you need to use chainloader, probbally02:40
edbianFransWillem: radeon is the opensource driver.  fglrx is the "AMD" proprietary driver.  Can you pastebin dmesg for me?02:40
Opinieecoz_: yes, I have clamtk, and it should get definitions when started. The virus engine seems to be outdated still02:40
coz_Opiniee,  o0 mm let me check here again hold on02:40
Opinieerrconf: no, I do want the virus engine, so I believe you are on the right track02:40

edbianFransWillem: Ah yes.  I forgot about the ssh issue.  Hang on02:45
pfifomsponge, I have no idea then, those proprietary systems are so proprietary. You can try asking in #grub. but honestly, I would pirate a windows CD and install the way I expect things to work.02:45
Opinieercconf: but clamtk does show the clamav's virus engine, does it not? that's what it uses?02:45

truepurpleI was given a command to use before, but it didn't work02:48
edbianFransWillem: tell me what it says.  Already newest version, installing, blah blah02:48
Opinieecoz_: I think it should then show you, whether the virus engine is up-to-date or not02:48
pfifob1lly, vsftpd has many config options, not as much as apache, seems like you just need to read the man vsftpd.conf page02:48

ActionParsnipFransWillem: run nautilus and it may work, or you can simply execute the app you want to run02:54
edbianFransWillem: and dmesg while you're at it02:54
ActionParsnipOpiniee: aaaaah sounds likely02:54
edbianActionParsnip: The monitor is blank on boot up.  He's ssh'd in to do work.02:54
pfifoedbian, it will restart the service, of course unless you can see the monitor, theres no wayy to tell what its showing over ssh (unless you use cli todo a screencap or something)02:54

Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, when does it ask for that? when you try to connect?  try   irc.freenode.net03:06
FransWillemedbian: If I try sudo stop gdm first, it tells me it reached a maximum of X display failures03:06
meLonLancelot, by 'unofficial' do you mean that the repo is owned by neither Ubuntu NOR Mozilla?03:06
FransWillemedbian: Xorg.0.log indicates it's trying to load fglrx again03:06
FransWillemedbian: Gimme a min to pastebin it03:06
edbianFransWillem: ok.  That's vague so not very helpful :/   The details are welcome though!03:06
edbianFransWillem: strange03:06
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, or  irc.freenode.net/800103:06
edbianjoin #radeon with me03:06
LancelotmeLon, I'm not actually sure to be honest. I didn't write that. I think by unofficial it meant not owned by canonical03:06
haveacigaro:( well, i cant mount a partition, which cannot be fixed in first aid. I was wondering if this sounds like a MBR type issue (i realise that it boots using efi)03:07
truepurpleSeven_Six_Two: That is a separate catagory under network03:07
meLonCool.  I thought it was an official Mozilla repo.  If not, I need to remove it.  lol03:07
haveacigaroif you could just point me in the right direction...03:07
edbianFransWillem: btw, I think that the 'radeon' references in dmesg are referring to the card name not the module03:07
LancelotmeLon, I said it didn't belong to canonical03:07
FroztGreetings to all03:07
LancelotmeLon, I'm sure it is a mozilla repo, look at the URL03:07
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, it might be asking for your hostname then. If you don't use them, just put a fake hostname03:07
ActionParsnipmeLon: there is the daily ppa, the stable ppa will more than likely be the oneincorporated into the official repo03:07
meLonThat's what I was trying to clarify Lancelot.  Sorry03:07
FransWillemedbian: Xorg.0.log at http://pastebin.com/3wfs5UCs if you still need it03:07
edbianFransWillem: reading03:08
Sean93I just installed ubuntu in a virtual machine. I then used bastille. now i get permission denied when i try to login as the only user account. how do i login as root a the console if i never set a root password?03:08
FransWillemedbian: dmesg | grep radeon has become a lot less btw :/03:08
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, or put whatever you  have for your machine listed in      /etc/hosts03:08
* rcconf loves Ubuntu03:08
rwwLancelot, meLon: That PPA is maintained by Ubuntu's Mozilla packaging team, which is not part of Canonical or Mozilla. PPAs in general are not officially supported.03:08
truepurpleSeven_Six_Two: What are host names?03:08
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, sorry, that's    /etc/hostname03:08
meLonty rww03:08
edbianFransWillem: I see.  join #radeon03:08
rcconfrww: it's a PPA from a trusted source enough said03:08
rwwrcconf: I personally would trust them, yes.03:09
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, they are like domain names. you can name all of the machines on your network so that you don't have to remember the ip addresses03:09
FroztSo, a simple question. I'd like to dual boot along side Win7 on my laptop. I'm not sure which version to get, the desktop or the netbook. Any suggestions?03:09
rwwFrozt: either is fine. They're just different user interfaces; they have the same underlying system.03:10
rcconfFrozt: laptop ofc03:10
=== jrt4 is now known as jrtayloriv
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, I run a webserver (mydomainname.com) and my desktop's hostname is mydesktop.mydomainname.com, my laptop is  mylaptop.mydomainname.com03:10
rcconfof course03:10
treyofc = of course, frozt03:10
rwwFrozt: if you don't have a particular preference either way, I'd go with Desktop.03:10
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, you can name the machines by putting an entry for each other machine in /etc/hosts03:11
Froztthe reason I ask is because I thought I read something about the netbook having touch response, but my laptop doesn't support touch03:11
Sean93how do i login as root at the console if i didnt set a root password?03:11
treytruepurple, you should probably read a basic intro to TCP/IP, DNS, and/or Linux book if you are asking that03:11
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, just make sure you use the names that each machine has for itself in /etc/hostname03:11
rwwFrozt: Netbook edition works fine with normal input devices (keyboard, mouse, trackpad, whatever)03:11
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, :)  what trey said!03:11
rwwSean93: you don't. Use sudo instead.03:11
ubottusudo is a command to run command-line programs with superuser privileges ("root") (also see !cli). Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo for more information. For graphical applications see !gksu (GNOME, Xfce), or !kdesudo (KDE). If you're unable to execute commands with sudo see: http://www.psychocats.net/ubuntu/fixsudo03:11

Logan_!ff4 | Lancelot03:12
Sean93rww i can't login on the user account03:12
ubottuLancelot: 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 firefox03:12
ActionParsnipSean93: when you are done, type:   exit03:12
LancelotLogan_, I've seen that. I'm having issues03:12
rwwLancelot: probably not. The only thing I know about it is that there's a PPA for it; I don't use it myself.03:12
rww!password | Sean9303:12
ubottuSean93: Forgot your password? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LostPassword What's the root password? See !sudo. Don't see *** in password prompts? That's normal. Sudo doesn't ask for your password? It remembers you for several minutes. Please use strong passwords, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StrongPasswords03:12
Sean93rww, i havnt forgot my password, bastille seems to have locked me out, i get permission denied03:13
rwwSean93: although if you mucked things up to the point that it won't let you log in with a valid password, booting into rescue mode (hold down shift at boot and select the relevant option) and getting to a root console from there is probably your best bet.03:13
Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, I recommend buying "Linux Administrators Handbook"(It's a pink cover), and/or "Linux in a Nutshell"03:13

Seven_Six_Twotruepurple, purists will scream irssi, but I use xchat03:17

truepurpleDo all three use that red highlighting when people say your name?03:17
treySince you're in gui, definitely woul dsuggest xchat truepurple03:18
rwwtruepurple: xchat does. irssi highlights the nickname part of the message in yellow by default (though I have it set to highlight with a red background personally), pidgin does something that I forget.03:18

PsyForceI'm guessing pretty secure, but just curious as my laptop was just stolen03:22
tucemiuxPsyForce, is your home directory encrypted?03:22
treySorry to say, not very psyforce, if someone had half a brain03:22
rwwPsyForce: Just like any other OS, if you don't use encryption, then an attacker with physical access can read the whole hard disk.03:22
truepurpleNoone knows anything about smuxi?03:22
pfifoPsyForce, they can access all files as root now03:22
tucemiuxPsyForce,  youre screwed but I doubt the thief would take the time to recover any from your laptop03:22
PsyForceyeah, especially since I'm in China...I think just finding that it doesn't have windows on it will be daunting03:23
treyThis is true, generally laptop thieves aren't the brightest.03:23

tucemiuxPsyForce, nowadays I typically encrypt my home directory and have another data that will hold files that dont have sensitive data like passwords or my hilton videos03:24
tucemiuxPsyForce, i meant to say i have another **partition*** that holds files...03:25
=== Logan_ is now known as CivilPerson
PsyForcehmm, so what are options if I've already done a standard install on the new machine?03:26
Opinieerww: does it increase CPU usage very dramatically?03:26
PsyForcecan I still encrypt? would that help?03:26
treyPsyforce, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EncryptedHome03:26
tucemiuxPsyForce, you can still encrypt but the easiest thing would be to just reinstall unless you have a lot of data on it03:26
OpinieeHow difficult is it to recover a encrypted file system? If you have backups that is03:27
rwwOpiniee: depends on how much reading and writing you're doing. Probably not for normal users.03:27
kriumehow can i change my username in ubuntu 10.10???03:27

treyFrozt the good thing about a fresh install is, you can always just wipe it.  IMO you learn a lot more by doing, but that's just my preference03:37
Seven_Six_Twob1lly, if there are subdirectories off web/gelberg  you'll need the switch for recursive.   man cp03:37

leapy0yoaginor, in the gui config window it does not list the drive and the smbd.conf file does not list the drive... for i deleted and disabled that... but i can still mount it, why? is it because it is shared through windows enabling it?03:48

TeligardI've tried both smbfs and cifs04:01
b1llysudo chmod -R 774 ./homeskoold/gelberg half the files dissapear04:01
ayeceeTeligard: what happens when you try?04:01
rcconfb1lly: ?04:01
b1llylike right now04:02
TeligardI get the following i the dmsg: [16353.273928] CIFS VFS: cifs_mount failed w/return code = -2204:02
JuppI somehow managed to damage my partition table on a secondary drive I use for storage. The second drive is /dev/sdb and it used to be only one partion sdb1. the drive started to fail and after "fixing it", automount fails. I can only mount the drive by "mount /dev/sdb" instead of "mount /dev/sdb1". I don't know how I manage to do that but help fixing it is appreciated.04:02
b1llyall my files and folders in var/www/homeskoold/gelberg have no permissions04:02
b1llyand im trying to make them readable04:02
TeligardAnd the shell returns: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on //mybook2/Public/XBMC_layout,04:02
Teligard       missing codepage or helper program, or other error04:02
Teligard       (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might04:02

ayeceeJupp: what did you do that broke it?04:03
=== fllthy is now known as filthy
=== filthy is now known as fllthy
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
ayeceeJupp: that is, what did you do while "fixing" it?04:03
Juppayecee, don't know I mainly ran testdisk about a million times and I think I used it to create a parition04:03
ayeceeJupp: is there any data on the drive that you want to keep?04:04
TeligardSorry about the preceived flooding04:04
Juppayecee, yes. lots of it. I would transfer it to another drive and reformat, but it's too much data04:05
b1llymh /var/www/homeskoold/gelberg folder has no read or write permissions set, how do i set them...becuz of this i am not able to access it via the web04:05
JuppI would like to keep as much as possible04:05
ayeceeJupp: then continue to mount it as /dev/sdb. The available fixes would require a backup.04:05
ayeceeb1lly: anyone what?04:06
pfifoJupp, gparted has a utility to fix you partition table, it will examine your disk and make a guess at how it was setup before. You should be able to recover using it.04:06
b1llythe file permissions of my var/www/homeskoold/gelberg folder04:07
ayeceeb1lly: what about them?04:07
b1llyare not set, so i cant access the files in that folder via my web url04:07
b1llyim trying to set them to "read"04:07
ayeceechmod o=r /var/www/homeskoold/geldberg04:07
BabyGirlwhen they talk about splash screen in gmonelook.org is that the boot screen ?04:07
izinucsb1lly: do a "ls -la" and paste one of the resulting lines04:07
ayeceeerr.. o+r04:07
spiralsBabyGirl, generally that refers to the screen before the login screen04:08
b1llyayecee if i wanted to make them all o+r for the files and folders in it04:08
b1llydo i need to do sudo chmod -R o+r /var/www/homeskoold/gelberg04:08
TeligardOk, let me try this from a different angle04:08
ayeceeb1lly: could you put a whole sentence in a line? that way we don't have to wait for you to finish the sentence.04:08
izinucsb1lly: most likely the files are not owned by www-data or your isp is blocking port 8004:08
Teligardhow to I automount a network share  using (I presume its the only, or best option) fstab04:09
b1llyizinucs: my files are owned by root?04:09
b1llyis this bad04:09
izinucsb1lly: yep.. not what you want.. sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/*04:09
ayeceeb1lly: it depends on the permissions. show the permissions on one of the files with ls -la, as suggested.04:10
b1llyizinucs: whats the reason for this04:10
pfifoTeligard, exactly the way your doing it already04:10
izinucsb1lly: www-data is the standard owner of apache's files in /var/www ..04:10
b1llyayecee: http://pastebin.com/2bwLJfKy04:11
izinucsb1lly: you as "manipulator" of the files should be in the www-data group04:11
b1llyim very new to linux so04:11
b1llyim trying to follow but im a little lost04:11
ayeceeb1lly: the gelberg folder is readable. which file are you trying to access?04:12
b1llyits readable now, after i did the chmod that you told me04:12
b1llyit works good now04:12
b1llybut how come i have to chown04:13
b1llylike izinucs is saying04:13
izinucsb1lly: protected files all have a specific owner.. your stuff is owned by you.. system files are owned by root.. web served files are owned by www-data.. after that you also deal with permissions on those files.. read only, read+write, read_write+execute for three levels.. owner, group and everyone.04:13
izinucsb1lly: chown=change owner04:13
leapy0yoI don't understand why samba is sharing a hard drive that is not in /etc/samba/smb.conf ... anyone think of a reason?04:13
ayeceeb1lly: because you copied the files as root04:14
=== xk is now known as Guest2129
b1llyizinucs: when i setup ftp accounts, do i just set folder ownership to the same as the ftp username04:14
ayeceeleapy0yo: magic leprechauns have staged a daring assault on your computer while you're sleeping.04:14
mister_mwhat is the difference between ubuntu and xubuntu04:14
wjlafranceCan I install the full chain of ubuntu-desktop software on top of ubuntu-server, but disable GDM from starting on boot?04:15
pfifoleapy0yo, can you pastebin you config and what directory is it sharing04:15
izinucsb1lly: ftp setup is a little more tricky.. depend on if you want each user confined to their own /home folder or make it universal.. I'm not good at setting up ftp.04:15
ayeceemister_m: ubuntu provides the gnome UI by default, while xubuntu shows the xfce UI by default.04:15
mister_mayecee: ok, cool thank you04:15
bastidrazorwjlafrance: yes.04:15
gerardo_spanish ?04:15
ayeceegerardo_: no04:15
wjlafrancebastidrazor: how?04:16
b1llyizinucs: now that i set the ownership to www-data04:16
wjlafrancegerardo_: #ubuntu-es I think04:16
b1llyis this just a security measure?04:16
ayeceeb1lly: something like that, yes.04:16
izinucsb1lly: yes and no.. yes because security for apache is handled by apache if the files are owned by the apache user group.. www-data..04:17
bastidrazorwjlafrance: install ubuntu-desktop then edit the file /etc/default/grub .. change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash" to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"  then sudo update-grub.04:17
izinucsb1lly: no because if the files in /var/www are not owned by www-data then apache has no rights to present the files to "the world"..04:18
wjlafranceb1lly: a 774 bitmask (i think you mentioned earlier) gives world noread nowrite execute, so you can't see/read the files but you can execute them. I personally use 775, so you can read/execute but no write04:18
gerardo_bye ...04:18
cylobare there debian packages available for firefox 4?04:18
b1llyizinucs: when i did www-data:www-data         , is that like a username:password? or is that admin:group04:18
bastidrazor!ff4 | cylob04:18
ubottucylob: 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 firefox04:18
pfifocylob, mozilla should have them available04:18
wjlafrancebastidrazor: thanks :)04:18
bastidrazorwjlafrance: you're welcome04:18
rwwcylob: if you mean Ubuntu, see ubottu's factoid. Ask #debian if you mean Debian ;P04:18
izinucsb1lly: that's a user:group04:19
cylobi mean ubuntu04:19
mrdebso debian is already outdated?04:19
mrdebno firefox 404:19
wjlafranceb1lly: username:username sets the owner and group of a file. For example when I host my friend's website on my box, I set the ownership to luke:www-data04:19
rwwmrdeb: You say outdated, Debian users say stable.04:20
rwwmrdeb: Ubuntu is the same way but with a shorter release cycle so one doesn't notice as much.04:20
pfifooutdated isnt a lightswitch, its a dimmer04:20
cylobcan i install gnome 3 shell on my ubuntu 10.10 install?04:21
cylobi wanna try it out04:21
pfifocylob, yeah04:22
rwwcylob: there's a gnome-shell package on maverick, but it's rather out of date. you'd probably be better off playing with a LiveCD of a distro that actually uses GNOME 3.04:22
b1llywjlafrance: so why do www-data:www-data04:22

b1llyshouldnt i put billy:www-data04:22
truepurplehow do I add flash to ububtu 10.10 64 bit?04:22
rwwcylob: the upcoming Fedora release will; GNOME 3's website has http://www.gnome3.org/tryit.html also04:23
cylobcool thanks04:23
kerriedoes anyone know how to get jmp running on Ubuntu 10.10?04:23
cylobim a bit concerned, btw, about ubuntu's decision to drop gnome 304:23
cylobnot that ive used it yet04:23
BabyGirlspirals:) can i put my ubuntu 9.4 and get the splash from that distro,,i love it better thatn 10.4 it looks more profeccional for me at work04:23
wjlafranceb1lly: ideally only the webserver and the superuser can touch the web data. If you're the only one who's going to touch the web data, such as on a home server, I can't think of a reason not to do that. It's a security risk though, but I don't think it matters on a home server04:24
edbiancylob: Might now sound like it but I think an alternative to X (wayland) sounds great.  Stir up some friendly competition and make everything better for everybody04:24
izinucsb1lly: you could do that too.. as long as the second name is www-data04:24
cylobedbian: so the next ubuntu will use wayland?04:24
b1llywjlafrance: why is it a security risk04:24
edbiancylob: It will be an option down the road I believe.  I'm not sure about the next version or not04:25
rwwWayland has nothing to do with Ubuntu's decisions about GNOME 3, and Wayland won't be used in Ubuntu for a long time yet.04:25
edbiancylob: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Wayland04:25
kerriedoes anyone know how to get jmp running on Ubuntu 10.10? This is desperate, as I have an assignment due in two days and can't walk to uni because I've injured my foot. The uni service desk refuses to help04:25
cylobif i dont like unity i guess ill swithc to fedora04:25
rwwbut, this is all more on-topic for #ubuntu+1 or #ubuntu-offtopic than here, since #ubuntu is for already-released Ubuntu versions :\04:25
edbianrww: Thanks04:25
wjlafranceb1lly: because, if i remember correctly www-data doesn't have a password so it can't be bruteforced. You have a password, you can be bruteforced. The question is, who will try to bruteforce you?04:26
pfifocylob, I plan to move to fedora as well04:26

Peddypfifo, I don't have windows on here (;04:38

pfifoPeddy, then is ubuntu is using the 'full disk' then it will be full disk encryptoion ;)04:39
spiralsBabyGirl, search in Software Center for "plymouth-theme", you will see some other choices like "solar" "glow" "spinfinity" maybe one of them is more to your liking04:39

Peddypfifo, OK, thanks again. My reason for asking is that, in past installs, it only encrypted the home directory. But this is good news04:39
spiralsBabyGirl, if you want to go all out customizing that kind of thing try this control panel app "GDM2 Setup" http://maketecheasier.com/gdm2-setup-reclaim-control-of-your-login-in-ubuntu-lucid/2010/05/2004:39

DarkenvyThe permissions of [my drive] could not be determined :|04:40
kerrieayecee: thanks for your help04:40
cylobi read that the performance difference between 32 and 64 bit is negligible, but that 64 bit will end up using alot more hard drive space04:40
cylobam i way off on that?04:40
pfifoPeddy, thats on the user setup screen, the full disk encryption is in the partitioning section of the install04:40
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: It is 64 bit, I was told to run a particular command, I ran it, it seemed to install, but it didn't work04:40
edbiancylob: I do not think it takes up any more harddrive space.  64 bit allows you to use more than 3.2 Gb of ram.  (there is a technicality)04:41
ayeceecylob: it will use more, but it will also be negligible with current disk sizes.04:41
BabyGirlspirals:) thank u so much for ur help,GOD bless u for helping the needed people04:41
cylobso if you have under 3.2gb ram, there wouldnt be a reason to use 64 bit?04:41

paraparaspirals: on Gnome I actually got rid of all the panels and was using a mac-like dock04:55
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: So the link with the flash download you are recommending if you would please.04:55
paraparaspirals: but then I got rid of the dock by mistake04:55
TeligardI usually do ps aux | grep <app>04:55
ayeceefolorn: what kind of video card do you have? Is this in a virtual machine?04:55

Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: I downloaded the .deb which all of them on there are 32 bit04:56
Teligardthe process Id associated with task you want to kill04:56
Peddyfolorn, have you tried the "force quit" tool on the panel?04:56
Teligardie. ps aux | grep xbmc04:56

pfifowhy not just killall xbmc04:58
lucid_j0ad is nice but still in alpha..04:58
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: I know the way I have it works, that's all I'm saying.  If someone else has a easier way of doing it, please share.  My was is downloading the 32 bit, forcing the install with dpkg, and then creating a file in /etc/ to make it run smoother04:58
ayeceelucid_j: no, but I think there's one similar to simcity.04:58
Us3r_Unfriendly*my way04:58
TeligardI'm alway concerned that something else will get killed as well04:59
lucid_jayecee: which one?04:59
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: But there are multiple 32bits to choose from04:59
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: I downloaded the .deb04:59
folorni tried everything peddy04:59
ayeceelucid_j: micropolis, maybe?05:00
folornwhen i go to run the program it locks up, not sure on the video card it should work fine. how you see the name of the vid card ?05:00
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: No experience or knowledge of the APT one? Why did you choose deb?05:00
ayeceefolorn: glxinfo, maybe05:00
leapy0yois there a way to move files even whereas it says cannot remove destination... when the destination is the same.. i try -f to overwrite but it does not work for whole directories, i think05:00
Peddyfolorn, to see your video card, try "lspci | grep -i vga"05:00
folorni need this quake4 process killed but dont know the exact syntax05:01
ayeceefolorn: which process?05:02
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: if it was a apt, then it's a repo which you add to your software center...that's way when there's a update with flash, ubuntu will download it automatically through software update.  which in this case might be bad, seeing that you had to "ghetto rig" it to work.  The update might screw that up.  but I would say just do what your comfortable with.  apt is a way of doing it, so is the square, and my way05:02
folornits stuck at the panel05:02
ayeceefolorn: so you don't have a terminal available?05:03
eamondoes anyone know how to set the aspect ratio in mplayer?05:03
pfifoa swarm of hornets recently made a nest in my old server, everytime i turn it on they come out and attack me, will reinstalling ubuntu fix this issue?05:03
spiralsfolorn, do 'pgrep quake' in a terminal; that might give you the process id05:03
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: What is repo?05:03
folorni do got the terminal just dont know how to excute the command05:03
ayeceepfifo: nope. gonna have to kill it with fire.05:03
jiltdileamn: are you taking about scale length05:03
spiralsfolorn, grep is text search, pgrep searches the text of the process list05:03
folornk 1sec the vid card deal is here>>> dustin@ubuntu:~$ lspci |grep -i vga05:03

eamonjiltdil: say I wanted to force playback in 16:9 or 4:3 how would I do that?05:04
ayeceefolorn: what pgrep command are you using?05:05
folorni typed pgrep quake4 to list the process's05:05
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: it's basically a server that has apps that has been looked at to made sure it's virus free and such (repository)  you add a ppa to your software center to access the downloads.  Good also for 3rd party downloads.  sudo add-apt-repository "ppa name"  is another good way of doing it05:05
spiralsfolorn 'pgrep quake' not quake405:05
b1llyhow do i make a directory, so that when I use my "mkdir" or I upload a file via PHP script, it allows it to happen05:05
ayeceefolorn: and there were none?05:06
b1llycuz right now its neglecting file uploads05:06
ayeceefolorn: you may have to use "ps aux" to find out what he process is called.05:06
spiralsfolorn, just my hunch, often version numbers don't make it into process names05:06
b1llyis there something i have to setup via my apache server config to allow file uploads05:06
folorncan i just right click delete from the control panel or will i loose it all ?05:06
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: So you think the apt is probably going to work at first, but maybe get busted if updated?05:06
ayeceefolorn: you can do that, and you will not lose it all, but it might not terminate the quake process.05:06
spiralsfolorn: 'pgrep quake', failing that 'ps aux' and use eyes to spot the name as ayecee said05:07
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: yes IF you have to ghetto rig it to work05:07
spiralsthe pid will be on the left side of the line with the name05:07
jiltdileamon: try this if it works sudo  mplayer -vo svga -ao sdl scale=0:0 ~/Desktop/a.avi    set your scale05:07
pfifob1lly, create the uploads directory and then chown it to www-data05:07
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: us 64bit users didn't get as much love as the 32bit guys did05:07
jiltdileamon: i am not confirm that it works fine but try perhabs it works05:08
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: But don't I need updates? Old flash programs start becoming incompatible with newer games and such, do you not have that problem?05:08

folornnow i lost my control panel wtf05:08
jiltdiljiltdil: if you have any video on desktop i give the path05:08
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: It is just a matter of time though, 8GB is not too much off standard, once 8GB becomes necessary for a copy of windows, you will see 64bit everywhere05:09

jiltdilUs3r_Unifriendly:how 32bit is easier compared to 64 bit?05:11
ayeceeb1lly: what are you using to upload?05:11
abhinav- I am trying to install xchat-gnome but apt is saying that the package cannot be authenticated05:11

Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: how are you trying to install it with?05:12
b1llypfifo: the chmod is 077705:12
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly,  sudo apt-get install xchat-gnome05:12
b1llyayecee: cgi?05:12
jiltdilabhinav:just try sudo apt-get install xchat05:12
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: like i said, do what you comfortable with05:12
truepurpleUs3r_Unfriendly: But don't I need updates? Old flash programs start becoming incompatible with newer games and such, do you not have that problem?05:12
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: i don't, no05:12
ayeceeb1lly: yes, cgi. How is your website receiving an upload without a cgi?05:12
pfifob1lly, did you write this script yourself?05:12
leapy0yodudes, I try to move a directories but MV coughs and says that the destination directory already exists, how can i go about fixing that?05:13

b1llyi'm using a html form with a php script to handle the file upload05:13
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly, ah ok, it was asking for confirmation in the end. But from software center it was outrightly refusing to install05:13
jiltdileamon: use this in F1-F6 mode05:13
FerrelAnyone know of issues with ssh connectivity in 10.04 server? it seems to freeze my connection through an admittedly "flakey" openVPN connection, but all other servers(CentOS) work fine except the 10.04's05:14
b1llyis there something i have to configure in apache to allow that?05:14
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: so "sudo apt-get install xchat-gnome" doesn't work?  personally i recommend wee-chat or irrsi.  awesome in my opinion05:14
ayeceeb1lly: so the php script is the cgi then?05:14
b1llyidk what cgi is but I suppose05:14
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly, yes it worked now. It was asking to confirm whether I trust the source or not. I didnt know about wee-chat and irrsi. Will try them out :)05:14
ayeceethe php script receives the file. does the php script have any logging?05:15
=== chris_ is now known as Guest73520
pfifob1lly, yes, but you might already have it configured properly, did you write the script in question yourself? more then likely you have the path wrong05:15
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: i've never used xchat.  I'm very old school with emacs, vi, irssi, ect.05:15
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: well now vim lol05:15

truepurple Us3r_Unfriendly: What do you use flash for?05:16
pfifob1lly, what kind of return value do you get from move_uploaded_files?05:16
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: i would say yes trust the source.  seeing that your downloading the package from ubuntu's repos...unless you added 3rd party ppa's05:16
b1llylet me see, sec.05:16
folornso any ideas ayecee?05:16
b1llypfifo its got to be returning false whatever it is05:16
b1llybecause i have it within an if statement05:17
b1llybut ill check to see if it returns any value, sec05:17
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly, I did that. But I guess this option of confirming the source should be given from the software centre as well05:17

ayeceefolorn: ideas on what?05:17
ruanwhile keeping the drive functional\05:18
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: is ubuntu software center asking you or synaptic, or are you using a shell and using sudo apt-get install xchat-gnome??05:18
folornso what the errors about and maybe how to fix it so it runs properly?, and how the heck i get my bottom panel back05:18
pfifob1lly, if its returning false, then chances are you need to adjust MAX_UPLOAD_SIZE and MAX_POST_SIZE in php.ini, do a phpinfo() to see what these limits are set as05:18
ayeceefolorn: which errors?05:18
truepurple Us3r_Unfriendly: What do you use flash for?05:19
folornwell the ones i posted up in that vpates link- oh well can u help me get my bottom panel back?05:19
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly, First I tried installing directly from the Software Center, it refused to install because of unauthenticated source. Then I switched to the shell and did "sudo apt-get install..." which worked05:19
b1llyphp ini is in the apache2 foldeR?05:19
ayeceefolorn: I don't know what you're talking about.05:19
ayeceefolorn: however, i've had a couple of drinks since you first started, so you may just have to explain it again.05:20
ruanis boot.ini safe to remove? will ntfs still be functional after removal?05:20
jiltdilabhinav:type gksudo software-center  in Alt+f2 you will install your softwares from s/w center05:20
Us3r_Unfriendlyabhinav-: weird.  it'll usually ask me if a second time if i want to install with me answering the question with either a y or a n.  never had it ask me if i trust the source.  you running 10.10?05:20
ayeceeruan: providing the boot.ini reflected only default options, yes.05:21
folornwell i guess ill have to restart the computer again for the error its a texture compression error it happens when i got to run quake405:21
folornand can u help me get the bottom panel back for my screen05:21
pfifob1lly, run phpinfo() it will tell you where the php.ini file is located05:21

truepurple Us3r_Unfriendly: What do you use flash for?05:21
pfifob1lly, try uploading a small file then05:21
abhinav-Us3r_Unfriendly, yes 10.10 (upgraded from 10.04). Its strange but I noticed this behaviour in recent days only, maybe some update for the software-centre has triggered this05:21
ayeceefolorn: I don't understand. Let's see if this is correct - you ran quake4, received an error about texture compression, rebooted, then your bottom pannel was gone?05:22
sancasmmm when ubuntu start firts run the console and later them five six seconds charge the gdm this is normal? or need to do something?05:22

jiltdilHow to compile Apache Modules?05:40
Us3r_Unfriendlytruepurple: depends if dpkg will remove it or you'll have to physically get in there and rm it.  /var/log/ has alot of information in that directory of what you have installed and where the files go in the directory :P  fun fact05:40
pfifoshuey, your not really asking any specific questions, in general your ssh is not secure, nor is mine, nor is googles... everything can be hacked.05:41
VE2EBP>> I'm trying to copy stuff from my home directory on a USB ext HDD using nautilus... It won't copy some of the files telling me that I don't have read access... why is that?05:43
shueypfifo: Sorry... let me try more... I have ssh installed and running.  I also have my config file completed.05:43
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: exactly my argument05:43
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: open a shell05:43
shueyThe two things I'm wondering are: 1. What, if anything, do I need to do with the first set of keys that were auto created by installing openssh?05:43
VE2EBPa shell? What is that?05:44
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: terminal05:44

bruskiI am trying to reactivate an old software RAID array.  I have all 5 discks plugged in, and can feel them vibrating, but when i run fdisk -l I only see two of the discks.  Is this a problem with the physical setup?05:44
pfifoshuey, ssh only uses 1 set of keys, you just generated a set of your own which wasnt really needed05:44
=== Swish[\] is now known as Swish
shuey2. How do I create another key or set of keys that I can password protect, so that when I ssh to this network from outside, I will be prompted for both a keyfile and a password?05:44
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: no, no su05:44
VE2EBPdo I have to use the cp command?05:44
shueypfifo: I never generated another set.  All I have is the set that was auto created when the server was installed05:44
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: what's the directory of the files your trying to copy??  second paste you "sudo mount -l"  in a pastebin05:45
ouyeschecking for libssl... configure: error: Cannot find ssl libraries, but I installed that package05:45
Us3r_UnfriendlyVE2EBP: yes you'll use cp but later05:45
pfifoshuey, openssl dosent work like that, it uses the keypairs to encrypt the socket, and then you give your system password for a normal login05:45
shueyopenssl?  I said "openssh"05:46
shueyAnd if it doesn't work like that, or there's not an option to do it, then how did I have it working on the previous box?05:46
pfifoshuey, either way, all you need is one set of keys and so long as you dont give anyone your private key your all set05:46
Us3r_Unfriendlyssh ftw05:46
VE2EBPthere's no way to just use nautilus in any way? Us3r_Unfriendly05:46

shueyI have a second, new thing I'm trying to figure out as well.  I have no idea why, but everytime I login to my Ubuntu box, a gedit window opens with nothing in it05:48
shueyI checked my startup apps and there is nothing in there that looks like it would be tied to what's happening05:49
shueyso I'm not sure what's causing it05:49
pfifoshuey, you probbally had gedit open and logged out choosing to save the session, try closing everything and logout05:49
shueyI have... this still happens after closing all my apps and rebooting05:50
shueyand oddly enough, an empty gedit window is the ONLY thing that runs automatically after I've logged in05:50
shueyno other apps do05:50
shueyof course my tray indicators and stuff do, but I'm saying that gedit is the only windowed app that runs05:51

ubottuPackages in Ubuntu may not be the latest. Ubuntu aims for stability, so "latest" may not be a good idea. Post-release updates are only considered if they are fixes for security vulnerabilities, high impact bug fixes, or unintrusive bug fixes with substantial benefit. See also !backports, !sru, and !ppa.05:59

justin__histo, my apologies, I'm not even sure what I was thinking. Straight to the point though, it doesn't start up right away and when I try to start it via terminal it says "/usr/sbin/apachectl: 148: /usr/sbin/apache2: not found"06:40
justin__I thought it'd be a common problem, but my googling gave m little useful information.06:40
jiltdilpfifo:ok but is there a way to open it in terminal06:41
Sleakerjustin_ did you install via Package manager?06:41
nathicis it possible to backup files from root shell?06:42
justin__Sleaker, I installed via apt get.06:42
Sleakeron ubuntu?06:42
justin__Yessir. Ubunut 10.10.06:42
Sleakerkk well I installed all the stuff via Synaptic Package Manager and it setup properly.06:42
justin__Sleaker, what should I search for to find it there?06:42
pfifojiltdil, no, a terminal cannot ever display graphical data, its only made for character display.06:43
justin__That "2" makes all the difference. XD06:43
Sleakerif it doesn't also check these you'll want them: apache2.2-bin, apache2.2-common06:44
Sleakeralso you'll most likely want php06:44
justin__I only want it for its server capabilities, no php for me this time around.06:44
Sleakernot going to be running php on your webserver?06:44
justin__Sleaker, it's just a a little personal thing I'll be using to share files.06:45

Sleakerthere's a myriad of ftp servers.06:46
SleakerI haven't installed one yet as I don't serve files.06:47
justin__I'll look one up. Thanks for the suggestion. Easier to setup, I'd hope?06:47
Sleaker"ftpd" looks like the standard though06:47

Sleakerjustin_ prob cause you used apt-get instead of package manager ;p06:48

justin__Sleaker, it appears that ftpd will work without problem (after I configure my router).06:53
histodBugSlayer: np sorry I couldnt' help more06:53
Sleakerjustin_ mhmm, I noticed the ftpd notes say to use one of the other 'better' tools06:53
Sleakerit's recommended to use vsftpd, proftpd, or pure-ftpd instead of the standard ftpd.06:54
Sleakerftpd standard doesn't use ssl, so passwords are sent via plaintext06:54
Sleakeranyone that uses tcpdump on the ftp packets will be able to get the passwords.06:55
Sleakerso it's seen as unsecure.06:55
Sleakerbetter to use a server that supports ssl.06:55
Sleakerftpd-ssl is the standard one with it, or the other ones that are recommended should also.06:55

Sleakertruepurple, System -> ADministration -> Synaptic Package Manager06:59
pfifoSleaker, that is irelevant as most  ftp clients dont support ssl either... justin__ if your making an anonymous ftp then ftpd is fine, it you are going to have logins then vsftpd,pureftpd,cuteftpd will atleast allow your users the option of having a secure connection06:59

abstraktmrdeb, all I know is that I had essentially unrecoverable errors - luckily I was able to save it with fsck, but I got a bout a bazillion inode errors etc I had to fix07:46
Jordan_Uabstrakt: What were the symptoms? I find it hard to believe that a software update would actually cause loss of all data on the hard drive.07:46
bruce_histo: yes..07:47
bruce_netbook version 10.1007:47
abstraktJordan_U, symptoms? well grub disappeared, so I had to boot using a CD/USB, and then when I did that I couldn't mount the partition, so I had to fsck it and I got about a bazillion inode related errors07:47
abstraktJordan_U, then I had to manually reinstall grub in the MBR (read: not even windows would boot, cuz I had no grub)07:48
abstraktJordan_U, and yeah then I was able to boot my 10.10 partition, and my old 10.04 partition, but my 10.10 install was royally screwed, the gnome theme was gone, default ugly theme07:48

abstraktall kinds of other weird random problems07:48
mrdebreally abstrakt07:48
abstraktJordan_U, I found it quite hard to believe, yet it happened07:48
abstraktmrdeb, yup, really07:48
abstraktmrdeb, again, if you want 'safe' just stay on debian stable and never run software update07:49
mrdebcant do that07:49
abstraktoh and never install any packages07:49
abstraktmrdeb, ok then it's impossible to have anywhere near assurance of "safety"07:49
Jordan_Uabstrakt: Did you check the drive's SMART status for hardware problems? What happened when you tried to boot before re-installing grub but after the fsck?07:49
mrdebwell, at least you can put your critical data on a separate partition07:49
abstraktagain, maybe if you pay for RHEL you will have someone to sue07:49
MACscr|lappyok, so i have 3 sata drives in my desktop. The first one has ubuntu on it, the second is for storage and the third is for windows 7. Ubuntu has been handling the whole dual boot thing using grub. Now when i try to reinstall windows on the third drive (even after formatting), it wont let me reinstall it. Says it cant access the partition (though it lets me delete and/or format it. any recommendations?07:50
abstraktJordan_U, the fsck didn't fix grub07:50
mrdebwere you running 32bit version07:50
abstraktmrdeb, nope, 6407:50
Jordan_Uabstrakt: What happened when you tried to boot though?07:50
mrdebso maybe taht's why07:50
abstraktJordan_U, blank black screen, blinking "underline" style cursor07:50
abstraktthat's it07:50
abstraktmrdeb, yeah but that's still BS07:50

mrdebnotice some interesting things07:51
abstraktyeah 64 used to throw giant gobs of poop, and not too long ago either07:51
abstraktbetter now, still a little poopy - or sometimes very poopy as I found out about 1.5 months ago07:52
Jordan_Uabstrakt: Did you check the SMART status of the drive? I'm almost certain that the Software update and the corruption are unrelated.07:52
pfifoMACscr|lappy, iver always found the windows complains if you install to anything besides the first partition of the first drive in your system, unless there is already a windows installed on the first partition of the first drive on your system... try to fix the issure by unplugging the first and second drive in your computer then installing07:52
bruce_guess I am destined to do three of four actions just to get one of my very often used applicaitons started, when it SHOULD be as easy as dragging it to the launchbar.  Current tasks show up GREAT in the bar with the little carot next to them, but not able to ADD any links to applications to the quicklaunch  :(07:52
mrdebthe thing is that 64 bit is faster07:52

canadacowwhat games did you have in mind?07:57
bruce_I thought it was going to be really cool to have Ubuntu on a netbook (my first netbook), and it has been interesting, but this procedure of going all though the menu system EVERY time I want to start up a fav application is getting VERY tiring, and it is extremely time consuming...07:57
pfifogames support an operating system, not the otherway around07:57
romantic_rectumany games i love 3D07:57
eZtaRbruce_, I'm assuming you're using netbook remix? I got tired of that aswell and just reverted back to original :P07:58
mrdebso afman , you are overall happy07:58
KB1JWQromantic_rectum: Stop trolling freenode, please.07:58
mrdebyes. netbook remix is limiting07:58
Logan_KB1JWQ: heh, I could tell from the username07:58
bruce_eZ: iirc I chose the original netbook dist..  was a little hesitant to try a "remix"..  :)07:59
jjpAbout general sentiment on netbook remix: agreed; only add+ is on tiny screen (my 7'' asus eeepc)07:59
Logan_bruce_: netbook distro = netbook remix07:59
Logan_remix just means it's not desktop Ubuntu07:59
mrdebthere's no reason for the remix07:59
Logan_bruce_: well, now it's called Ubuntu Netbook Edition08:00
bruce_OK...  Thought I saw two dist, side by side, a base and the remix on the same mirror..  could be wrong on that..08:00
bruce_OK..  NBE...   That sounds right..08:00
bruce_just seems to me that ther SHOULD be a way to ADD applications to the launcher, since there is a way to REMOVE them  :)08:01
inslan4how do i find out what format a disk is in?08:01
leapy0yohow can i mv files and directories and override the "destination already exists" ?08:02
jiltdilif i have a QR code how do i see itd contents that is added to it?08:02

eZtaRbruce_, you can, just open the app you want to pin and right-click it :)08:03
leapy0yopifio, i rather there be an alternative08:03
RopuppetlauncherI want 1280x960 to show up in MONITOR SETTINGS rather than 1280x1024 which isn't 4:3.. it's the wrong aspect ratio. What do I do?08:03

eZtaRbruce_, Sorry man, can't give you a more accurate description than that, it's been a while since i changed from netbook remix08:11
SenoraRatonYou can send tty to the console, capture the input apparently.08:13
bruce_eZtaR:   Just did this procedure...      left click on 'application menu button' (triangle square with sissors) in launcher, that brought up top level applications menu.  selected 'Media' submenu, that brought up the menu containing the 'rosegarden' icon (among others), right click on rosegarden icon - no result, try to drag rg icon, as soon as mouse leaves icon - icon returns to normal status, no drag occurs...08:14

Chipper351Has anyone every tired to Update a Ubuntu Live on a USB Drive? After I Update I have nothing but issues with my Ubuntu08:28
Jordan_UChipper351: You can't upgrade a LiveUSB install. If you have enough room I would just do a normal install to the flash drive instead.08:29
Chipper351I dont want to do that because I want to be able to take my USB from computer to computer and the USB to be able to reconize the drives and everything else on that box08:29
blackest_knightI'm trying to use lvm and move files from my internally ssd to a bigger sdcard but the card is mounted late so i'm having a bit of bother /home is successfully moved but i'd like to move more08:30
pfifoChipper351, a regular install will still do that08:30
Anubishi ! how can i generate 100+ users accounts on linux ?08:31
Chipper351If i take my USB to two different computer it will still detect any new hard drives and hardware that is in the different computers?08:31
pfifoAnubis, a shell script should suffice08:31
Xintruderis back-track based on ubuntu?08:31
pfifoChipper351, thers not much diffenrence between the live system and the normal install, they both detect hardware the same way08:32
blackest_knightChipper351: yes a drive is portable i've taken hard drives from one system and put it in another without issues08:32
truepurpleWhen I try to add tomeboy notes to my panel, it gives me the following error- The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:TomboyApplet". Can someone help me?08:32
Chipper351what is the difference then?08:32
pfifoChipper351, the live system includes the casper package which makes your system run on a rramdisk and changes arent persistant08:33

pfifoChipper351, its the same as installing to a hard drive, and the recommended minium harddrive size is 2gb if using the standard desktop install CD08:43

crumpfifo seriously thanks for the help. I will not be off topic and will install ubuntu when I get a chance :-D08:46

Xintrudercrum I have one, u recommend dual boot?08:47
pfifoSleaker, thats not really a good idea08:47
Sleakerpfifo, how come?08:48
Jordan_UXintruder: crum: Macs in general use a lot of hardware with poor linux support.08:48
pfifoSleaker, why do you have to have a terminal windo open?08:48
crumJordan_U dang.. I didn't know that :/08:48
Sleakerpfifo the app I'm running requires administration from the terminal it uses.08:48
pfifoSleaker, crontab isnt designed to be an interactive thing08:48

Sleakerso is there a better way to run something like that at login?08:49

knightstalkerbut I did everything dirty from terminal,now that some people need ubuntu for some reasons,they ask me to tell them how to do it using GUI08:51

MACscrok, so i run ubuntu as my primary OS, but have windows 7 on another disk. Im currently using grub to pick between the two. Anyway, i had to reinstall windows on the that separate disk and for some reason it wouldnt let me install unless disconnected the rest of my drives. Well now that i have it installed again and the drives reconnected, i cant seem to boot into windows. The partition its picking is correct though, as it should indeed 08:53
Sleakerpfifo, can that be supressed?08:53
MACscrwhen i pick the windows option, it says it cant find the partition08:53
Chipper351I have formatted my USB drive with 10GB of Space for Ubunut, when I go to install I choose Install from within Windows and the Ubunut Installer Comes up. It then tells me that the Drive on has 9GB free and asks for the Installation Size ... What is it asking for with the Installation size?08:54
ohsixMACscr: try running sudo update-grub in ubuntu, in a terminal08:54
Jordan_UMACscr: Did you run "sudo update-grub" after re-installing windows?08:54
pfifoSleaker, you can have the program specifically write to another file, but stdout and stderr are going to root's mailbox08:54
Sleakerpfifo, ahh ok. I'm sure I can googlefu how to change output08:55
MACscrthanks, just tried that. Will see how it works. Also, how can i get ubuntu to only retain the last 2 kernels? right now there are like 5 options08:55
jussiHow does one see which groups a user belongs to?08:55
jussi(from the cli)08:55
pfifoyou might be able to run gnome-terminal in crontab, and have gnome-terminal execute the actual script, but you might get some problems finding the X display08:56
pfifojussi, root can run 'groups <user>'08:56

* Tamago goes in search of the minimal installer08:57
Jordan_UTamago: Not a straightforward one. What is your exact situation?08:57
AJenboor du i have to put them in /usr/bin ?08:57
Tamagojordan: .... isn't it obvious? I have a 9.10 live cd and I want to install 10.10.08:57
pfifoAJenbo, you can put them in /home/user/bin and add that directory to your $PATH08:58
Jordan_UTamago: But given how difficult it would be to install 10.10 with just a 9.10 liveCD (easiest way being to install then upgrade, using a lot of bandwidth) it's usefull to know if you have other options or if you're stuck 200 miles from the nearest black CD or flash drive :)08:58
ohsix.local/bin for great justice08:59
pfifoTamago, a ubuntu 10.10 liveccd is a bit better for installing 10.1008:59
Tamagojordan: I'm going to download as minimal an install disc as I can find (I think mythtv or xmbc pointed to one that's 15mb)08:59
Jordan_U!minimal | Tamago09:00
ubottuTamago: The Minimal CD image is very small in size, and it downloads most packages from the Internet during installation, allowing you to select only those you want (the installer is like the one on the !Alternate CD). See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD09:00

If so can someone with with a Realtek RTL81xx network card issue a "sudo ifconfig eth0 mtu 9000". Caution: be prepared for a 4 sec internet dropout while linux rediscovers the your real MTU.11:50

spyroxI'm having issues getting my wireless to pick up DHCP using iwconfig and dhclient11:51
Newbeehow can I find out which of my certificates is used by network-manager to set up my wireless?11:51
ikoniaspyrox: just use gnome network manager to configre your wirless, it should be easy then11:52
NewbeeI told him to use system certificates and it works, but I want to know which of them is used.11:52
spyroxCan't. It's for a .sh script to be run for rebuilding netbooks11:52
bibic682anyone up on changing color depth in 10.10. When I try to edit Xorg there is nothing there. I was able to edit that in 9.1011:52

zee313Is there any compiler for Java? I want to learn that language . But don't know which compiler will be used here in UBUNTU11:53

spyroxikonia: I can use iwconfig to set information and also put info in /etc/network/interfaces. However, iwconfig doesn't show the essid when i set it to the wireless I want to use - but it will if i put in anything else11:55
ikoniaspyrox: then it's doubtful it's connecting11:56
bibic682alkaliv2: I just need the right file to edit I guess to change the color depth to 1611:56
alkaliv2check this path for me and help me finish it according to your setup by tabbing over /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-  ?11:57

B9ikonia: i cannot answer that with full knowledge, to my knowledge i personally have done nothing to make the change... i have systematically had many aspects of the 10.10 gui of the os drop away... i no longer have the panel on the right... i am unsure what its technical name is12:34

Logan_SupeR_NovA: have you asked in #videolan?12:42
LantiziaHey is there any way to test if sudo was used to run a script (i.e. I want to warn them NOT to use sudo but to use real root)12:42
Dr_Willis!info vlc12:42

alkaliv2B9: They have stopped working on beagle so "pinot" and "tracker" are two viable options.12:43
Star_Lightcan i ask something about irc?12:43
B9alkaliv2: sudo apt-get install beagle didn't work, Synaptic returned Catfish for a Beagle search are they one and the same?12:43
Logan_Star_Light: those questions are for #freenode12:44
ThinkT510Lantizia: it is advisable to use sudo to accomplish root tasks, why do you want them to use root?12:44
alkaliv2B9: They are similar programs yes12:44
Dr_WillisLantizia:  check the Enviroment variables  I think  if ran as the  user. theres 2 that will be differnt. then if it was ran by sudo.12:44
LantiziaDr_Willis, the environment variables just tell me root is running it - which is techncially true... but via sudo12:44
Logan_!root | Lantizia12:44
ubottuLantizia: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo12:44
B9alkaliv2: i like the name of Beagle :-( are Pinot and Tracker forks of Beagle?12:45
Dr_WillisLantizia:  if your script wont work properly when used  via sudo.. i would think your script needs fixed.12:45
alkaliv2Lmao ubottu12:45
Dr_WillisLantizia:  theres other variables I recall   check output of the 'set' command.12:45
LantiziaLogan_, trigger happy are we?12:45
alkaliv2I know he's a bot but that was funny12:45
alkaliv2B9: Beagle was the best search in existence for awhile but unfortunately there are no longer working on it.  But catfish is an alternative that you can use12:46
alkaliv2sorry, that was very opinionated12:46

B9alkaliv2: i appreciate your opinion grounded in personal experience12:47
LantiziaDr_Willis, if part of the scripts job is to delete the very user your logged in as (the non-root user) then what do you expect?  it's gotta run as real root!12:47
Star_Lightwhy /dns cmd isnt working in others servers?12:47
Star_Lightanybody knows?12:47
ikoniaStar_Light: what command12:47
Star_Light-> /dns <host>12:47
Dr_WillisLantizia:  your user is deleting himself? thats rather.. weird.12:47
ikoniaStar_Light: that's not a command12:47
LantiziaDr_Willis, not weird if your not logged in as that user12:48
Star_Lightikonia if run this command here gives me your ip12:48
ikoniaStar_Light: oh, you mean in irc, ask in #freenode12:48
alkaliv2you may like this.  I can alway appreciate a good screenshot http://screenshots.debian.net/package/catfish12:48
ThinkT510Lantizia: why would you want to delete the user you're logged in as?12:48
Dr_WillisLantizia:  you just said you were logged in as  that user..  but all i can suggest is to check the output of the 'set' command. I seem to recall a variable for the user running somthing, then some other one that was differnt if a command was ran via sudo.12:49
ThinkT510Lantizia: sorry, misread your post12:49
LantiziaThinkT510, Dr_Willis, I don't! grrrr! My script deletes whatever user 1000 is and remakes it differently... so the script has to be ran as _real_ non-sudo root to do that or you might be running it from the user in question12:49
B9alkaliv2: i have installed Catfish and have searched, very happy, fanX; while i am at it, do you recommend an application to rip CDs i have been using a plugin on Banshee but it is problematic as it doesn't always pull info from Musicbrainz...12:50
LantiziaDr_Willis, ok how do I check the output of sed when running it via sudo?  (sudo set, and sudo bash set... both don't work)12:50

LantiziaI'll rephrase... When running a script using sudo it obviously runs as root... but is there anyway I can make the realise sudo was used to gain root?12:53
ThinkT510moi: google summer of code12:54

bonjoyeeLantizia: why?13:01
Dr_WillisLantizia:  if a user uses sudo. then the sudo env has a variable such as -> SUDO_USER='willis',  i dobnt think a direct root login has that variable set.13:02
moithanks doc i got bash for biggners13:02

brontosaurusrexwhat is a good logic to add another disk to a server? i moved pretty much everything data intensive to /home/specificuser, but say/home/specificuser/sites is still taking mucho space, would it be good to just reroute that path to a new drive or... ?13:02
alkaliv2B9: Give this a try keystrokes Alt+F2 and in the box that opens up type gnome-panel13:02
LantiziaDr_Willis, ah cool - will have a check13:02
bonjoyeeLantizia: can /var/log/auth.log help?13:03
Dr_WillisLantizia:  man sudo -> mentions other variables that are set also13:03
IledenHi! How can I tell whether my (x)ubuntu is using ndiswrapper or not?13:04
guampabrontosaurusrex: maybe #ubuntu-server could suit more, but anyway it more or les boils down to just add a bigger disk for /home or move/link the big area to where you have free space13:04
brontosaurusrexguampa: well, its just about bigger disk, not really server specific question13:04
Dr_WillisLantizia:  so it seems teh SUDO_UID and UID and other variables would differ if ran as sudo.   one would not exist if ran as root.13:04
LantiziaDr_Willis, cool thanks13:05
terryIleden: NOt sure but it may show up as process. Try  ps aux |grep ndiswrapper13:05
brontosaurusrexbasically the question would be: move and reroute entire user to a new drive or just certain folders that belong to that user, is there any big difference?13:05
alkaliv2Ileden: Are you using it for your wireless card, flash, or something else?13:05
Iledenalkaliv2: wireless13:06
jarnos Can you upgrade via update manager even if there are PPA repositories in use?13:06
guampabrontosaurusrex: there isn't practical differences in the big majority of cases, you can link the dirs or submount them with mount --bind13:07
alkaliv2What does your networking icon in the panel say?  Is your wireless card a choice?13:07
Iledenalkaliv2: terry: no results (except the command itself)13:07
=== guitar431_ is now known as guitar431
terryIleden: It may be a module. Try: lsmod |grep ndis13:08
Iledenterry: "ndiswrapper           184207  0"13:08
B9alkaliv2:  it didn't fire the panel, will it now be present if and when i restart? or did i do it wrong, i didn't run in terminal i ran the file?13:09
terryIleden: Well, there you go.13:09
terryIleden: Is the wireless card working ok?13:09
Iledenalkaliv2: "a choice"? yes, wireless networks are listed in the connection manager13:09
Iledenterry: nope. that's the problem.13:09
alkaliv2Ileden: I suppose it is working13:09
Iledenterry: I was hoping using ndiswrapper would fix the probloem.13:09
terryIleden: iwconfig    #what does that tell you?13:09
Iledenalkaliv2: no. I have major problems connecting to my home network. works fine on dualboot windows.13:10
brontosaurusrexand another q: actually i have two drives left to put into this server, is there a built in valuable way to raid1 them (the mirror)?13:10
alkaliv2B9: Try Alt+F2 and type pkill gnome-panel13:10
brontosaurusrexthis server is karmic13:10
alkaliv2Ileden: What is the wireless cards information?13:10
Iledenterry: iwconfig tells nothing unusual. doesn't reference ndiswrapper in any way.13:11
alkaliv2And does it show in the ubuntu restricted drivers section?13:11
terryIleden: iwconfig | pastebinit13:11

sysRPLhas anyone here gotten 1080p video playback to work on ubuntu using hardware accellerated vdpau?14:36

erUSULLachine: did you used sudo with mkfs.nilfs ??14:36

pumeustDr_Willis, when i reboot it just takes me to the login14:37
terrypumeust: Use the down arrow to navigate to it and just hit enter to boot.14:37
sysRPLi followed some steps to setup vdpau accelleration on 10.10, but when i play a 1080p mkv on vlc, it's too damn slow ... is there a way to check if vdpau through my hardware is actually being used?14:37
Dr_Willispumeust:  so what are you truying to do exactly?14:37
albert748MechanisM, to ensure that stability, ubuntu will not use the latest version, ppa should your best friend14:37
MechanisMalbert748: ubuntu-tweak not working properly in natty =(14:37
NoobxCan ubunutu be used to create DHCPv6 and DNSv6 ?14:37
Dr_WillisMechanisM:  its working fine here.. but im in #ubuntu+1 talking about it,.14:37
terrypumeust: If you just need to turn off the X server, you can do it on the fly.  service gdm stop14:38
PiciMechanisM: Please use #ubuntu+1 for all Natty support and discussion, it is off-topic for #ubuntu until it is released.14:38

MantelisHello, I trying to configure my Integrated Video Card, but when I open /etc/X11 there is no xorg.conf, is this is normal and what should I do? Paste: http://paste.ubuntu.com/586454/14:40
alkaliv2hzroot: I can't even find a binary of your driver.  You may need to wait for a driver update for your card.14:40
hzrootok i wll thnx for help.14:41
terryalbert748: stardict is in the repos14:41
Dr_Willispumeust:  you could use a live cd. and fsck the filesystems.14:41
albert748MechanisM, ppa:tualatrix/ppa14:41
alkaliv2hzroot: I apologize that I don't have an answer for it.  You just bought a computer that was TOO amazing :)14:42
Dr_WillisMechanisM:  fist thing ubuntu-tweak did here was ask to enable its PPA. :)14:42
terrypumeust: As Dr_Willis suggests, you need to do it from the live CD. (Not a good idea at all to run fsck on a filesystem you are running on.)14:42
albert748MechanisM, you can type command: add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa14:42
MechanisMyep I know thnxx14:43
pumeustDr_Willis, oh yeah i forgot about live cd the person said to run safe mode or live cd14:43
albert748MechanisM, from terminal, and sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade, all things done14:43
