Roasted__Is NTP installed + running by default in Ubuntu?:00:10
rcconfRoasted__: no, just ntpdate at boot.00:11
drcRoasted__: no00:11
shcherbakmurielgodoi: hm, good question...00:11

Roasted__rcconf, I'm having some time issues with my thin clients using LTSP and Edubuntu 10.10. Everybody is pulling a different time. It was recommended to me to install NTP and put in the time server in the config file for the thin clients.00:11
Roasted__rcconf, you would think, but like I said, running thin clients. Our setup is a bit different as a result.00:12
rcconfRoasted__: do it using gui it's easy. you just need to add the NTP address to the list and check it.00:12
rcconfit will ask you to install ntp00:13
rcconfafter that you can purge ntpdate.00:13
Roasted__rcconf, It's a bit more complicated than that, as my thin client image has no GUI.00:13
Roasted__rcconf, so I need to do it via terminal.00:13
rcconfRoasted__: i know how to do it.00:13

tbruff13sorry Mad_HaTTer ok if im doing every thing right could the school just not allow linux00:59

b1llylittlebearz1: wont even connect to fpt.domain.com problem loading page01:00
littlebearz1(b1lly): if u get too fed up, use a windows and use filezilla server for a temporarily solution, though I don't recommend it01:00
b1llyusually it just promps for username pw01:00
[snake]apple is second in line when it comes to retarded companies -_-01:00
miccaeither I gotta recompile the kernel and still have it be updated properly with respect to dependencies, or I have to yet again, go and do something silly like  change to a rolling release distro? surely not :/ blah01:00

b1llyoh and vsftpd01:01
hilariehilarie, sudo apt-get remove --purge unity double -- intended?01:02
miccabut still.. can someone tell me,.. can i recompile our ubu kernel and keep it in the dependencies01:02
micca?01:02
littlebearz1(b1lly): so you have a problem with permission or you can't connect at all?01:02
b1llyboth01:02
[snake]micca, from my position it could have been 2nd or first, because you were simply moving apple to 3rd.01:02
littlebearz1(b1lly): with connection it's your vspfd configuration and with user that's just with permission error01:02

Mad_HaTTerso littlebear are you english as the name implies?01:05

T_N_Thello I have an acer aspire one and just installed 10.10 netbook via wubi only problem is there is no wireless driver installed, anyone know what to do?01:09
quantjohnwedd: be more specific, please01:09
littlebearz1(micca): I have no clue about that xd01:09
searaymanto send a kill SIGTERm via terminal is it like this: kill -15 PID01:09
littlebearz1(searayman): I thought it was pkill -pid xxx01:09
DrFalconuse pkill01:09
muay-guy has anyone succesfully installed the 64 bit flash plugin for firefox 4?01:09
Mad_HaTTeryes tbruff13 find out the encryption method and make sure your using the same in ubuntu weather aes or psk psk2 and check your keyboard layout in ubuntu weather us or us-init and that it mathes the kbd on the computer your on'01:09
searaymanlittlebearz1: whats the difference01:09
littlebearz1(hilarie): and if u're too lazy to type that ubuntu docs it's linked as http://u.xxw.ca/wifi01:10
littlebearz1(searayman): pkill is better though I can't explain it01:10
hilarielittlebearz1 I am going through it now01:10
littlebearz1(searayman): I think it does a deep aka better job than kill ?01:10
miccahmm not sure if pinning is quite it though genii-around . I was more wondering if I lose that right of 'support' etc, and* lose dependencies if I recompile the current ubuntu kernel I am using to include cpu freq scaling support as an example?01:10
johnweddquant, the flash plugin either comes up as crashed or as wrong version, i have updated uninstalled, reinstalled01:10
littlebearz1(johnwedd): sudo apt-get install flash-nonfree01:11
quantjohnwedd: are you using gnash or the proprietary flash?01:11
DrFalconuse killall if you want to kill a bunch of processes at once01:11
hilarieFYI if you ever have unity installed, and type sudo apt-get remove --purge unity when you boot back into ubuntu, you will get a white screen01:11
quantjohnwedd: also what version of ubuntu01:11
littlebearz1(hilarie): ouch01:11
miccadoes that package even exist littlebearz1 ?01:11
searaymanlittlebearz1: but hypotheticly would kill -15 PID work for sending the SIGTERM signal?01:12
johnwedd10.10,  and proprietary01:12
littlebearz1(searayman): yeah, it's harder to remember01:12
miccahehe hilarie01:12
quantjohnwedd: any particular page on which it crashes or just any page?01:12
littlebearz1(searayman): cause pkill I remember as process kill01:12
johnweddquant, all01:12
aaron_chi, i'm on ubuntu 10.04 and  making regular backups with ubuntu's simple backup restore utility.  if i buy a new desktop and insatll ubuntu 10.10 is it possible to use my backup files make an exact image of my current desktop?01:12
genii-aroundmicca: We cannot of course support a custom compiled kernel if you experience problems as a result.01:12
quantjohnwedd: remove it and install again, that's what I'd do01:13
searaymanlittlebearz1: i am just checkign if i am doing somethign right i learned in class, were learnign how to kill things with different things and have to send different signals to a program and write wht happens01:13
quantjohnwedd: be sure to have browser closed while doing it01:13
johnweddprop01:13
DrFalconaaron_c: I would reccomend a clean install rather than an image, because hardware is going to be different.01:13
littlebearz1(searayman): neat class xd01:13
miccafair enough, but with the cpu frequency scaling pu tin there (as I really will save energy on it).. will at least I be able to re-introduce it to the dependencies so to speakl?01:13
searaymanlittlebearz1: i hte the class...01:13
littlebearz1(searayman): lol, ignore my last comment then01:14
[snake]well screw linux, I have a mac laying around somewhere... It's just sad that apple had to make me say that. :((01:14
miccanot getting support cos I need the energy saving is the same as going to a rollign releas I guess... and I like ubu ffs.. so but *dependency reliability* for me is the main issue!01:14
[snake]pardon my language, I keep on forgetting this is a support channel...01:14
littlebearz1(searayman): i would personally write a script that open a process a million times and kill it in a different times and capturing the output01:15
aaron_cDrFalcon: i see, ok.  but if my current desktop completely, and i just get a new hard drive, i shoudl be able to make an exact copy with my backup files right?01:15
aaron_c*completly crashes01:15
littlebearz1(micca): I think archlinux does a good job at kernel tweaking01:15
littlebearz1(micca): I meant their channel01:15
DrFalconaaron_c: If you are just changing your hard drive and nothing else, a disk image would work fine. But if you plan on moving your OS to a new machine, bad idea, imo.01:16
miccaye I tried it, due to thie very issue a month ago.. but then lol i tjust gets worse and worse and worse and in the end.. I kind of realise.. look, I want ubus stability and all.. and *all* I want is to be bl e to set my frequencies dfown when idling lol01:16
aaron_cDrFalcon: gotcha.  and buy disk image, that's what ubuntu's built-in "Simple Backup Restore" utility does, right?01:16

_GhouL_greetings everybody. do you know an open source alternative to Proteus isis (proteus is a software for electronics to create,simulate and generate pcbs on windows)?01:17
miccawhich is when I felt ubu is like MS in being, and arch just promising too much reliability on their system  (as their AUR or testing section, wasn't as developed as I expected)01:17
littlebearz1(aaron_c): if u want exact, and have the same hardware, use dd -if xxx -of xxx01:17
DrFalconaaron_c: I've never used that utility, so I don't know.01:17
miccabest backup utility ever01:17

KindariHey guys, asking in both #synergy and #ubuntu. I want to allow Synergy to continue running from a host machine accross all users using that machine, even Guest. Any ideas?01:17
littlebearz1(micca): arch isn't reliable when you start to mess around with the core xd01:17
aaron_co oki'll look into dd01:17
miccaye, but even on a rollign release, see what i mean01:18
DrFalconaaron_c: As someone else said, use DD to make a disk image, otherwise just copy files. I suggest rsync for file-level backups, because it won't do the whole thing over on backups subsequent to the first one.01:18
miccahow , in this day an dage can it beso hard to get some scalin gsigh01:18
miccaI mean, moving to gentoo JUST for that is a bit harsh :)01:18
littlebearz1(aaron_c): btw, if u do rsync don't forgot the -r , so all subdirectories and files are copied as well01:18
aaron_cis there a way to make a list of pakcages i have insatlled on my 10.04 desktop, so i can reinstall all the same ones on 10.10 on my new desktop?01:18
[snake]micca, i think there is a project for compiling a custom ubuntu kernel actually01:18
miccaye, I had to recompoile their kernel too, then recompile the catalyst drivers, which in trun made KDE leak on ATI and just BLAH :p01:19
littlebearz1(aaron_c): I lost like LOADS of file just because forgot -r command in rsync01:19
Mad_HaTTerlsapt > blah.txt or something like that?01:19

adelle25566does it resemble anything to you?01:20
miccaye snake I coompiled it not so long ago, but wasn't sure about dependencies.. for me I have to be able to re-inject that kernel into my apt-get/dpkg rather.. and if does that5, Im happy01:20

maxojoshmc, hilarie , the problem is the unity package provided with 10.10 is an old package. I want to try the latest version01:32
maxobut I can't find a package anywhere01:32
gordonjcpHodapp: there's no taskbar along the bottom, just a bar of little squares down the left01:32
DrFalconWith all due respect to the Ubuntu devs, Unity isn't ready for primetime yet, imho.01:33
adelle25566rww: as i said above, i had a problem with semi-public machine with linux (which is obvious)01:33
gordonjcpso you can't tell what applications have windows open01:33
joshmcmaxo: could you update via ppa? I tried it once and I think that's how I tried it.01:33
rwwmaxo: There is no backport of the current Unity development version to Ubuntu 10.10. The relevant people decided that making one would take too long and take too much time from actually developing Unity.01:33
gordonjcpHodapp: the thing that's giving me problems right now is the drop-shadows around all the windows01:33
maxojoshmc, hmmm, yes I couldn't find a ppa01:33
gordonjcpHodapp: they make it totally unusable01:33
Hodapphmmm01:33
maxognome 3 looks really bad though01:33
maxounity looks a lot better01:34
maxoin gnome 3, they've even removed the maximise and minimize window buttons01:34
gordonjcpso if anyone cares to help me get rid of the eyestrain-inducing drop shadows, it would be much appreciated01:34
Acid190adelle25566:you have a problem with linux?01:34
coldfireadelle25566: I too run windows...in a virtualbox environment....it's wonderful.  Everytime it gets screwed I can just start it again.  Foolproof windows...I can't think why anyone would do it any other way.01:34
truepurpleI am having trouble with adding tomboy notes to panel, it is giving me a error, can anyone help me?01:35
HodappI also run Windows in VirtualBox, but there are plenty of things that I think I'd rather run natively.01:35
markrmillerI was not happy with Unity at first - now that I have given it a chance I like it more and more - more OSX like than Windows like always wins me over01:35
markrmillerits a better flow01:35
trismgordonjcp: compizconfig settings manager, window decorations plugin, configure the shadows01:35
gordonjcptrism: that just crashes compiz01:36
trismgordonjcp: then you have other issues01:36
truepurpleEmulation of OS is only useful if your trying to run something old01:36
gordonjcpmarkrmiller: I find OSX totally unusable01:36
DrFalconDoes Unity require compositing to be on in order to run?01:36
coldfireHodapp:I had to come up with something, this laptop wont support XP and my programmer for my race car has to use XP.  VB to the rescue.  I have linux stability to boot!01:36
phoenixsamprasOSx if fancier than Ubuntu, but yeh it sucks01:36
gordonjcpI really hate the "menu bar at the top of the screen" thing01:37
joshmcmaxo: having used gnome3 I find it about %4-%10 more effective than unity, but that is just my opinion ;) also, I googled unity and ppa and it came up with the ubuntu netbook edition stuff. That might help!01:37
gordonjcpit was a good idea in single-tasking versions of Mac OS, like System 601:37
HodappI find OS X plenty usable and streamlined for me, although for some things I really prefer Linux.01:37
maxoDrFalcon, I think there's a '2d' version01:37
trismgordonjcp: sudo apt-get remove indicator-appmenu; restart your session01:37
coz_gordonjcp,  also, you can go into gconf  /apps/compiz/plugins/decoration/allscreens/options01:37
markrmillerI thought the same until i started using it for a while01:37
truepurpleI am having trouble with adding tomboy notes to panel, it is giving me a error, can anyone help me?01:37

adelle25566Acid190: a few days ago i wanted to install an app on a semi-public pc.  however i got some kinda of message that there are no installed assets of something. does it resemble you something?01:37
gordonjcpcoz_: I don't have that01:37
maxojoshmc: I found a ppa but it was empty, I'll have another look01:37
joshmcmaxo: (that is, I found the ppa for 'unity' as une)01:37

adelle25566coldfire: my 7 doesn't get screwed01:37
Tempus_Fugitok heres another ?......if I set up a router on windows and try to access it in linux it should still work right...I need to get to the admin page to fix some things01:37
coz_gordonjcp,  ah ok ,, kde?01:38
coldfireadelle25566:don't use it much, eh?01:38
hilarie(Don't know if its gnome3 I want, I want w/e the default ubuntu 10.10 ships with01:38
gordonjcpcoz_: /apps/compiz-1/plugins/decor/screen0/options is as close as it gets01:38
gordonjcpcoz_: and it seems to have no effect01:38
coz_gordonjcp,  which version of compiz ?01:38
gordonjcpno idea, it's the first time I've tried compiz01:38
HodappI reckon one of these days I shall have to install modern Ubuntu on modern hardware.01:38
DrFalconTempus_Fugit: your router shouldn't care what OS you are using. Just go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. For 99% of routers, this will work.01:38
gordonjcpcoz_: whatever is in natty01:38
maxojoshmc, I think I came across that earlier, is it - https://launchpad.net/~canonical-dx-team/+archive/une ? it seems to just be a few packages from last year but no unity package01:39
coz_gordonjcp,  oh natty01:39
HodappToday I did modern Ubuntu on dumpster hardware because my roommate needed something she could use.01:39
adelle25566coldfire: what? windows? i just want this to work01:39
gordonjcpcoz_: 0.9.4.0 apparently01:39
Tempus_FugitDrFalcon: ok ty01:39
joshmcmaxo: might be the case... in which case I'll neglect to try and help much more as I am being less than helpful =S01:39
coz_gordonjcp,  ah that may be different let me check my natty  machine hold on01:39
phoenixsampraswhat gnome version is using ubuntu10.10?01:39
adelle25566adelle25566: i am not playing like Woz or Jobs or Bill01:39
joshmcmaxo: yep, having looked I feel rather silly.01:39
coldfireadelle25566:exactly....that's why I ubuntu01:39
maxojoshmc, that's ok, I even added it at first :-)01:39
gordonjcpI dual-boot between Ubuntu and Arch01:40
adelle25566Acid190: so?01:40
maxomaybe i'll just run natty in virtualbox to have a look. but I guess it won't support compiz, so maybe not much point01:40
maxohmmm01:40
gordonjcpI should probably look at this windows stuff one day01:40
rwwmaxo: indeed, Natty Unity and Virtualbox aren't friends.01:41
coz_gordonjcp,  yes on natty that is the correct  gconf settings,, I havent tested this on natty yest but the window decoration plugin is going to be far better to deal with shadows,,or rather easier on natty01:41
rwwmaxo: I use LiveUSB sticks instead.01:41
DrFalcongordonjcp: Win7 is actually quite nice, as far as windows versions go.01:41
gordonjcpcoz_: do I need to restart my session or something?01:41
coz_gordonjcp,  no you souldnt have to  but  with natty ,, at the stage it is in right now.. trying that cant hurt01:42
coz_gordonjcp,  also on natty / compiz the windows7 snap is available01:42
ubuntu__When I'm installing and selecting partitions manually, I select /dev/sda1 to install the bootloader on but when I reboot it doesn't load GRUB01:42

coz_gordonjcp,  when you move a window to the left edge of the monitor it maxes vertically on that side,, conversely on the rith and at the top  it maxes full screen01:43

scottamungaI'll try installing restricted extras and see what happens.  I'll probably be back here in a bit if the sound doesn't work :D02:14

Jordan_Uroyale1223: Then you can dd the whole drive from one machine to the other, then resize the partitition on the larger drive to use all of the space.03:39
DrkCodemanb1lly: chown is to change ownership03:39
DrkCodemanb1lly: you probaly mean chmod03:39
DrkCodemanchmod is to change permissions03:39
DrkCodemanso it would be like sudo chmod <location> 777 -R03:40

kevinclarkHi there. I'm running tomcat6 (6.0.24-2ubuntu1.5) and would like size based rotation (rather than time based) on the catalina.out log file. I was hoping to just pipe the output of catalina.sh into svlogd (the rest of the system uses runit - if someone has a startup script that's compatible, that'd work too), but start-stop-daemon backgrounds and I'm not sure how that and svlogd would interact. Anyone know if I can just add the pipe to the argum03:41

mrdebwhat's the difference between using sudo or just typing su?03:43
jdogHi all this my first time in this chat room03:43
Mad_HaTTersudo su or sudo -i03:43
DrkCodemanbasicaly to be able to use "root" less heh03:43
Mad_HaTTeror you can often jhust change the privilages with chmod03:44
DrkCodemanlol not many official supporters of this channel i might as well start using google03:44
DrkCodemanMad_HaTTer: i already said that03:44
itaylor57skullboy: try this link http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=4146703:44
joshmcmrdeb: it's using root permissions one time (well, unlocking it to use, etc) but you are not truely root. su would switch you to root for the session, or until you change back.03:44
mrdebjoshmc: so it's just as safe or unsafe to just use su, and then exit from terminal to stop03:45
DrkCodemani mainly use sudo for apt-get or updatedb03:45
Mad_HaTTersrry just got back to the comp so didnt see it03:45
joshmcmrdeb: it's as safe as you and your habits make it.03:45
jdogHas any one gotten the M-Audio Revolution 7.1 sound card to work in Ubuntu 10.1003:45
mrdebgood03:45
mrdebso there is no need for sudo to be installed03:45
kevinclarkmrdeb: sudo is usually used for one off commands. it can also be restricted to specific users or commands, so you can give a user access without giving them root03:45
DrkCodemananyone here know how to add a user to the sudo wheel?03:45
joshmcDrlCodeman: through visudo??03:46

ExplodingPigletsI believe it has it.04:58
ExplodingPigletsWhat program in particular should I be looking for?04:58
ExplodingPigletshold on, let me test it on cheese04:58
Alex61639Diamondcite: i need all of them? all three04:58
soreauExplodingPiglets: Yes, try cheese04:58
izinucsExplodingPiglets: you can test with "cheese".. sudo apt-get install cheese or look in software center for it.04:59

soreauTamago: What version of ubuntu?04:59
rcconf!downgrade05:00
DiamondciteAlex61639: Atleast common and source I think.05:00
ubottuAttempting to downgrade to an older Ubuntu version is explicitly not supported, and may break your system.05:00
Tamagosoreau: 10.1005:00
New0Diamondcite chroot what is it?05:00
soreauTamago: Did you check the md5sum of the image?05:00
red2kicTamago: Use "spacebar" to toggle something before you "Enter" to install something.05:00
TamagoI copied the cd to usb key, syslinux'd it, renamed isolinux.cfg to syslinux.cfg05:00
ExplodingPigletsok it works fine in cheese05:00
Tamagosoreau: nah.05:00
rcconfso I just want to downgrade a package!05:00
Theoreticianred2kic: I did, and i get this: Error mounting eCryptfs: [-2] No such file or directory05:00
TheoreticianCheck your system logs; visit <http://launchpad.net/ecryptfs>05:00
red2kicTamago: So you're installing nothing.05:00
soreauExplodingPiglets: That means your drivers are working fine05:00
Tamagored: ok.. er? I'm at the boot menu, not the installer.05:00
DiamondciteNew0: the chroot command when used properly makes the disable system look like the active system so you can do repairs on it while it won't boot05:00
ExplodingPigletsok, then what is the problem?05:00
soreauExplodingPiglets: It's likely whatever other program you were seeing the problem in is at fault05:01
izinucsExplodingPiglets: so you might need to install flash.. there are several versions.. some are "free" some not.. sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree05:01
rcconfim gonna do this way. wish me luck https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DowngradeHowto#Setting%20up%20pinning05:01
red2kicTheoretician: I never used eCryptfs -- I only know little enough to give you useful links.05:01

littlebearz1oh05:02
red2kicTheoretician: <user> -- Being your actual username?05:02

ExplodingPigletsnope05:06
ExplodingPigletsnot at all05:06
ExplodingPigletsIt is night here and I am in my well-lit room05:06
ac7ssjiltdil, use a mount command to mount it where you want it, use the information gained from 'mount' to copy into the fstab.05:06
red2kicTheoretician: Google something like "ubuntu, ecryptfs decrypt, solved" -- You may get lucky.05:07
YankDownUnderjiltdil, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Fstab05:07
Theoreticianyeah, ok05:07
ac7ssjiltdil, "mount /dev/hdb0 /data ; mount" the result will give something like /dev/dhb0 on /data type vfat options rw, nouser,remount05:08

ubottuThe 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/MinimalCD05:09

DaPenguinwell, text mode emacs is on 23 i believe, xemacs uses 21, so that's probably a start right there06:59
ohsixplus if you know anything about emacs, new versions are few and far between, and they break stuff; and addons wont work with every version. people are fine with older versions, or multiple versions06:59
ohsixbut that's all speculation, the question is silly, ask the maintainers of those packages; they are not here07:00

HemebondApparently exim might be the default.07:46
Hemebond(default MTA)07:46
ohsixStava: aes, personal just means it's a pre shared key instead of using 802.1x stuff for passwords07:47
Stavaohsix, would tkip+aes be less secure than aes?07:47
ohsixyes07:48
rwwHemebond: exim is on Debian. Ubuntu tends to prefer postfix. Neither is installed in Ubuntu by default.07:48
ohsixccmp is what you want if you can get it07:48
hiexpowep  :)07:48
Hemebondrww: Hmm, I guess mdadm installs Postfix itself then.07:48
ohsixbut it's nothing like wep vs. wpa, tkip can let people inject frames by abusing qos; which can be dangerous, but nothing like wep07:49
Stavaohsix, I also have a choice between "WPA Personal" and "WPA Personal Mixed" :o07:49
ohsixStava: that probably allows tkip/aes and ccmp/aes clients07:49
Stavaalright, thats a good thing then07:50
ohsixthat is, "mixed" allows both07:50

EmanonThen thank you but no thank you.07:57
ohsixif that's something you like, you could like; not have a computer, it's more secuire07:57
ohsixif there was a spectrum of silly, and you wanted to be the most secure, it's the most obvious answer07:58
EmanonWell, both ubuntu (via the alternate disk) and windows via truecrypt can do it, I just wanted some help getting them working together07:59
red2kicEmanon: You have physical encryption hard drives?07:59
red2kichardware encryption*07:59
ohsixyou know what's awesome about encrypting everything? you might as well not, because it's about segregation of information, and just throwing an "everything is encrypted" just side steps the issue07:59
Emanonred2kic: no was going to use LUKS and Truecrypt.08:00
ohsixyou weren't, because you can't08:00
ohsixnot as you wish too, anyways08:00
EmanonThank you ohsix for being no help whatsoever as well as condescending. This is why I come to #ubuntu; for your shrill and useless monologues.08:01
ohsixyou can prepare yourself for such an onslaught by knowing anything about what you're using08:01
ohsixinstead of just their names08:01
EmanonThus my initial question. I choose to use these technologies and wanted to know how best, if at all, they could be used together.08:02
ohsixi misspoke, you know of some of the marketing for truecrypt08:02
ohsixuse luks.08:02
EmanonLUKS doesn't work on windows.08:02
ohsixit does08:02
EmanonLUKS volumes can be accessed FROM windows.08:03
ohsixfreeofte will let you have an encrypted volume to access from either side, segregate your important encryptables into the bin08:03
EmanonBut LUKS cannot be used to facilitate full disk encryption FOR windows.08:03
EmanonI DON'T WANT SECURE CONTAINERS. I WANT FULL DISK ENCRYPTION. HOW HARD IS THIS TO UNDERSTAND.08:03
ohsixis this something you desire with such zeal08:03
ohsixi understand, that doesn't make it not stupid08:04
gordonjcpfull disk encryption is pretty stupid08:04
ohsixyou propose to dip your toe into the world of keep my stuff encrypted, and encrypting all your disk is PRETTY AWESOME LOL08:04

bigMikeah thanks08:37
bigMikeodd that's command is listed here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo#root account08:38
ohsixgaelfx: it's actually really ugly to get to work with regular permissions, you need like, allow_other and that other overlay filesystem that adds posix permissions, cuz theres no place for fuse to stash them (though concievably it could store them in alternate streams, it does not)08:38
|RicharD|any suggest ?08:38
gaelfxohsix: fortunately, I don't have to worry about it cause I'm not using NTFS with my Ubuntu at all :D08:39
ohsix;]08:39
ohsixgaelfx: it can be really confusing with user level sharing when fuse is involved08:39
bigMikequiescens: how to unlock, usermod -U ?08:39
quiescensbigMike: yes08:39
bigMikeso the root account is locked by default yet?08:40
bigMike*yes?08:40
ohsixit just won't work, cuz samba can't access them without allow_other, and with allow_other you need proper permissions or stuff can be trashed by anyone08:40
jiltdilfreaknyl; when i used it shows grep -inr servertokens /etc/apache208:40

durpahi, i just installed sun java6 jre and jdk, but my /usr/bin/java still points to old one i have, how can i find whereis my sun java executable?08:41
red2kic!java | durpa08:42
ohsixgaelfx: posixovl can be mounted allow_other though; since it applies permissions, and accesses the original volume as the same user, it'd be cool if it was automatic though (but there'd be 2 filesystems per mount and it'd be ugly :D)08:42
ubottudurpa: To install a Java runtime on Ubuntu on 10.04 LTS and newer, see http://tinyurl.com/2ffg7cc -  For the Sun Java products and browser plugin, search for the sun-java6- packages in the !partner repository on Lucid (which must be enabled), or !multiverse repository on older releases.08:42
durpared2kic: re-read what i asked... i already installed it08:42
durpared2kic: i  just don't know where the sun binary is : / and updatedb && locate java brings too many results08:43
ohsixdurpa: "which java", finds things in your path08:43
gaelfxohsix: ok, now you're way over my head08:43
red2kicdurpa: Read the link. Run "sudo update-alternatives --config java"08:43
durpared2kic: ahhh! you're right! that's what i was missing!08:44

nibblein mc, how do i see both permissions and modified columns?08:45
ohsixgaelfx: it's packaged for ubuntu as fuse-posixovl, http://sourceforge.net/projects/posixovl/ it's basically umsdos for any filesystem, stores permissions in a regular file so chmod and chown and i think acls work on filesystems without them08:46

nathicdoes  lspci -v | grep VGA show me if I have a driver installed or does it just output the device name...?09:53
ohsixFroztIkon: you basically create a file in /etc/profile.d/ that does it09:53
varunxiong, : http://pastebin.com/rz22Zxd909:53
lmontrieuxnathic, it will output the device name09:53
nathiclmontrieux, do you know a method how to check if I have a driver installed for my device?09:54
xiongvarun, Your output was chopped off. You can make your terminal window wider, you know. Looks like the trouble process is 'indicator-applet'; with a dash.09:54
lmontrieuxnathic, what device is it ?09:54
lmontrieuxnathic, there probably is a driver for it in the kernel09:54
xiongvarun, What happens when you kill it?09:54
nathiclmontrieux  , I guess I haven't got a driver installed .. under   system-> administration->additional drivers it doesn't show me drivers for my ati graphic card09:54
varunxiong: i dont know how to kill that process09:55
FroztIkonohsix the thing is, I want to be able to call upon adb from the term without having to be in the same directory09:55
lmontrieuxnathic, there is a driver, but it's the open source one. If there wasn't any you wouldn't see anything on the screen09:55
lmontrieuxnathic, what's the exact model of your graphic card ?09:55
ohsixFroztIkon: then put it somewhere already in your path, if it's just for one user you can edit ~/.profile09:56
nathiclmontrieux, lspci -v | grep VGA gives me 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 71da (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])09:56
monkeyDmy flashvideos that I am looking are very slow, and the framerate is not normal, is there a way to fix that ?09:56
xiongvarun, Okay, well, first, point #1: You may always find that you've killed something you'd really rather have left running. So, be aware of that and know how to restart your system if need be. That will start up all processes that should normally be running, including any you've killed (by mistake or intentionally). Okay?09:56
lokinouto kill a process : killall <name of the process>09:57
lokinou(easy and bruteforce way to kill a process)09:57
varunxiong: ok09:57
xiongvarun, For the rest, well, 'man kill' or 'man killall'. The first takes a PID, the second a process name.09:57
lmontrieuxnathic, if there's no available driver in system->admin.->additional drivers, then I'm afraid there is no proprietary drivers available for that card09:57
lokinoukill -9 <pid of the process>09:58
lmontrieuxnathic, you'll have to stick to the free version09:58
nathiclmontrieux, hmm but Im sure it once showed me some drivers there ...09:58
lmontrieuxnathic, and did you install them?09:58
RocketLauncherohsix, i don't like waiting for notifications to time out after i read them, i'm a fast reader and sometimes i want notifications and sometimes i don't.. i wouldn't want to disable them because i'd just enable them again after later09:58
xiongvarun, You probably want to try the signal 'TERM' first but that rarely helps; I generally go directly to $ kill -s KILL offending-pid and hope there are no side effects. There usually are not.09:58
xiongvarun, As usual, read the man page before doing too much tinkering.09:59
nathiclmontrieux, thing is  I recently did a reinstallation of ubuntu 10.10   and before the installation my system was running with no problem.. now I can't even turn on visual effects in my appearence menu09:59
varunxiong:k09:59
ohsixRocketLauncher: the point of notifications in ubuntu is to notify, not to have to dismiss or change your focus of attention, just ignore them until they go away, if you have a particular app that keeps a notification open way too long you should look at changing ti09:59
dsonlinewhat10:00
xiongvarun, If you kill the offending process, the problem will almost certainly go away; but that function may now be gone from your system; so you'll probably try a restart -- although you may just ignore that feature. If the problem reappears after restart, then it's time to study it closely.10:00
lmontrieuxnathic, mmmh, that' weird10:00
serverfelnathic:Happened to me me to. Were you connected to the internet during install?10:00
lmontrieuxnathic, were you running 10.10 before, or a previous version?10:01
nathicserverfel, jep10:01
serverfelHmm...10:01
nathiclmontrieux, had 10.10 before10:01
nathiclmontrieux , but LTS version and now I've installed from alternate cd10:01
lmontrieuxnathic, that shouldn't make a difference10:01
varunxiong: what is the command kill indicator-applet10:02
nathiclmontrieux, and last time I upgraded from 10.0410:02
lmontrieuxnathic, have you checked this page? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/ATI10:02
xiongvarun, The commands are 'kill' or 'killall'. You can kill any process with those commands, including some essential ones; so the first point is to remember you may have to reboot if you're careless in what you kill; the second point is to be careful what you kill.10:03
RocketLauncherohsix, I like to be notified and to be able to close it when I'm done reading it. My wifi notification just says "House - Connected". It's a bother10:03
serverfelnathic: what gpu du you have?10:03
lmontrieuxnathic, is it an old card?10:03
nathiclmontrieux,  I just simply don't have any idea what graphic card I have .. just know that it's an     ati fireGL10:03
spacenavihelp. my screen blinks when I play videos with vlc. I got an old computer with 7hundred something ram.10:04
nathiclmontrieux, but which series ... can I look that up in my system10:04
varunxiong: yes,what i did is : kill indicator-apple ,but the output it is saying is  bash: kill: indicator-apple: arguments must be process or job IDs10:04
ohsixRocketLauncher: perfect, disable notifications from nm-applet then10:04
lmontrieuxnathic, lspci should tell you that10:04
varunxiong: what is the exact command to kill the indicator-appl10:04
xiongvarun, Expand the width of your terminal window. The process is almost certainly named 'indicator-applet', not 'indicator-apple'.10:05
ohsixRocketLauncher: look in /apps/nm-applet in gconf-editor10:05
varunxiong: I expnded the window,it is showing indicator-apple only10:05
serverfelnathic: on my other laptop i had mayor issues with my M radeon 7500. Had to do quite a bit of tweaking. Maybe your previous install used a different driver by default. There are many to choose from. The "ati","radeon" etc...10:05
xiongvarun, Please read the man pages; I won't feel comfortable making suggestions unless you study up, because there's a lot more to know that what I can say without retyping the whole man page.10:05
nathiclmontrieux, 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 71da  01:00.1 Display controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 71fa                 but i have no idea what that means... not even google finds that card...10:06
xiongvarun, Dunno. Quit top and try it again.10:06
dsonlineaaa10:06
RocketLauncherohsix, i like those notifications, i'd just like to close them when I'm done reading them.... is there another notifications framework i could use to replace it?10:06
nathicserverfel, yeah think my old system used another one but which10:06
varunxiong, :http://pastebin.com/9VQKzdZV10:06
xiongvarun, There are two ways to kill a process: by process ID or by name. 'kill' kills by PID; 'killall' kills by name. I've already suggested one way to do it.10:06
varunxiong: k,i will try,thank you10:07
ohsixRocketLauncher: there probably is, but the point is to notify you of something, not to distract you and have to deal with trivialities10:07
lmontrieuxHmmm, that's annoying10:07
nathicserverfel, and how can i choose one? in additional drivers it showes me nothing...10:07
martin__good morning10:07
RocketLauncherit distracts me for three extra seconds after i read it though :( i'll google10:07
lmontrieuxnathic, could it be this? {“ ATI FireGL V5200 Secondary ,RV530 , 71FA “}10:08
serverfelnathic: im afarid there aint no easy way. Youĺl have to create a xorg.conf file and edit a bit. There are tips on the internet on how to configure the file. By default. Ubuntu 10.10 does not use such a file, but if you create it it will use it.10:08
ohsixlike clicking on every single one will be less distracting10:08
xiongvarun, Okay, well, I never really noticed that top clipped the output like that. As I said, it's almost certainly 'indicator-applet'.10:08
varunxiong: Thank you,i killed that process,now no problem with system,i will check after reboot10:08

lmontrieuxnathic, ok, so now that you know your card model, have a look at ATI's website to see if it's still supported (see the link I sent you earlier), and if it doesn't then you'll have to follow serverfel 's advice and fiddle with and xorg.conf file10:10

lmontrieuxnathic, you're welcome10:17

austiniumlmontrieux: yes11:33
zvacetaustinium:  then there is no 100% security11:33
austiniumohsix: i dont want the user fiddling aroung the settings11:34
ohsixno 100%, but in this case, single user mode is one kernel command line edit away; and if you disable that, a livecd, or anything that can mount it11:34
lmontrieuxaustinium, then there's no point in disabling the recovery mode, since the user could simply boot on a livecd or even steal the hard drive. As soon as users have physical access, you need some amount of trust that they won't do anything silly.11:34
ohsixaustinium: then you probably want centralized authentication, something that can't be messed with11:34

MadHaTTer_222i had a problem no forum on channel could cure in a ubuntu server ed so after 3 weeks i fixed it my dam self11:43
JohbeIs there anyway to get sar (from sysstat) to behave like it did in 8.x, 7.x for example when I'm doing sar -W 2 it does 2 statreports then quites, but now with systat 9.x it continue forever with 2 seconds meantime between collects.11:43

juniorsaHi, I am running zentyal but no-one in that channel has answered me. so now I am turning to ubuntu as zentyal is based on ubuntu, The issue is I have eth1 configured for pppoe and it does connected as shown by ifconfig, eth2 is my cable modem (dhcp) it connects fine and seems to take all traffic, I can't figure out how to have traffic balance, any ideas?11:46
ohsixjuniorsa: this channel generally doesn't support the distros based on ubuntu, that aren' tubuntu itself (kubuntu, edubuntu etc)11:46
RobinHoodI have a problem with apt-get; I have a local repository set up, and I used dpkg-scanpackages to make a Packages.gz file, then put the proper lines in /etc/apt/sources.list; but when I run apt-get update, it says (among other things) "failed to fetch file:/[file path]/Packages.gz File not found". The thing that irks me most is...that precise path DOES exist! What am I doing wrong? I googled, and I'm not finding anything...11:46
MadHaTTer_222if tracing the root wouldnt you go for debian as ubuntu is based off that?11:47
ohsixjuniorsa: and that's a general linux question, if the two interfaces have the same route, and the same metric, traffic will be shared11:47
ohsixjuniorsa: but in your case they never will11:47
ohsixjuniorsa: if you want to do load balancing between them you'll need to do application level proxying or something, but that can break a lot of websites D:11:47

ubottunick_name: 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/RootSudo13:30
pumeustohsix,  i'm not sure how to find the dir13:30
guibouDr_Willis: apart from the ppa builtin search, I dont find anything else ?13:30

Dr_Willisnick_name:  because its set up that way.13:31
nick_nameDr_Willis: canIprotect it?13:32
ohsixnick_name: because that's useful, also; the "ubuntu" account has no password, thus it doesn't ask you for "ubuntu"-s password to change to root13:32
yaccmajidkhan, and if you want to mount some device always at the same path, the uuid is probably the thing you want to look at.13:32
Dr_Willisnick_name:  you mean add a password for root to the live cd.. guess you could. i dont see why.13:32

ohsixif you want a special password policy or special storage (ldap or something behind nss) you do that with pam, or nss; if you want people to not change the password, simply make it so pam refuses credential changes for that user13:40
ohsixDr_Willis: he's using -server13:40
ohsixsoop: and really, yes; no need for an fstab entries since udev wakes up the pertinent parts for udisks to know of something, and for something like nautilus to automount it13:41

ohsixljsoftnet: it depends on what one works, i've never seen cpu sensors on i2c, you want to use ACPI, but even with acpi depending on your computer, might not report them13:45
kubanczeroburn, i have an USB sound device, which has an input for speakers and input for microphone. the speaker channel is working, but the mic channel is not working... i need the mic channel for the singstar deluxe game13:46
Dr_Willistheinkman21:  its proberly a front end to other command line tools.. so it may be a bit tricky to just downlaod and isntall13:46
ohsixDr_Willis: dig the package description, they go out of their way to mention the dependencies ;]13:46
ohsix* Needs no additional packages - onboard version of vamps and dvdauthor is used, to be as fast as possible.13:46
ljsoftnetohsix ah ok13:46
ohsixljsoftnet: other useful sensors can be on i2c though13:47
theinkman21i dont know13:47
zeroburnkubanc: oka try this: system-preference-sound, then under the tab that says input, you have a list of input devices, does your audio device show up there?13:47
theinkman21hmm that might work13:47
k1ng"wget  -O blah" will replace blah if i run "wget  -O blah" again?13:47
anubishi, can anyone recommend a eps-viewer that has a next/prev button. gv doesnt have this feature afais13:48
soopnick_name: google is your friend ..... http://serverfault.com/questions/152434/how-to-disable-cd-rom-and-usb-for-normal-users-in-linux13:48
kubanczeroburn, yes, i have internal audio analog stereo and audio adapter analog mono13:48
ohsixanubis: evince?13:49
ohsixsoop: don't tell people to google, they wouldn't be here if they could solve their problem that way13:49
zeroburnkubanc: try selecting the second one "adapter" one. That should be your USB harware13:49
Dr_Willisohsix:  and those deps need other deps and so on and so on..... back to  the kernel. :)13:49
theinkman21i think i found it13:49
Dr_Willisive had no issues withj k9copy - so ive never tried the other apps13:50
ohsixyou should try dvd9513:50
Dr_WillisI rarely need to copy a dvd these days. :)13:51
pumeustwhen i click on the disk that testdisk is copying from, it says 'Unable to mount location Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 21: fuse: mount failed: Device or resource busy.' does that mean its unmounted or busy??13:51
ohsixit's a shame that none that i know of actually work like dvdshrink, dvdshrink does bitrate shaving and is very fast13:51
pumeustoh i'm sorry disregard my last question13:51
pumeustit was the wrong disk sorry lol13:52
k1nghow do i disable retry of wget?13:52
k1ngConnecting to thefisherman.com|75.99.9.14|:80... failed: Connection timed out.13:52
Dr_WillisI dont think you want to be trying to access a disk while testdisk is working on it.13:52
pizzasI want to find my ip so I tried ifconfig. Which # is my ip which I can use on my host windows machine to share folders?13:52
zeroburnkubanc: has that corrected your prolem?13:53
pumeustbut then again i still dont know if its unmounted or busy13:53
pumeustbut then again i still dont know if its unmounted or busy13:53
sooppizzas: probably eth013:53
theinkman21dvd95_1.2p0-0ubuntu1_i386.deb this is the file i downloaded should it work13:53
pumeustDr_Willis, oh i didnt know, i been accessing it, i better stop13:53
zeroburnpizzas: the number after inet addr on the eth0 device13:54
ohsixtheinkman21: you can have software center install it, you shouldn't need to look for any debs13:54
pizzassoop the eth0  inet addr:13:54
majidkhanim having problem with partition manager13:54
sooppizzas: or whichever one gives you an actual address of something like 10.something.something.something or 192.something.something.something13:54
majidkhanMove partition ‘/dev/sda4’ to the right by 97.00 KiB and shrink it from 150.51 GiB to 120.01 GiB: Error13:54
LjLmajidkhan: ugh, you're trying to repartition an HDD that might be failing? :|13:54
sooppizzas: worstcase scenario ... ping your hostname from your windows machine ... it should resolve to the ip13:55
soopbrb printing stuff13:55
pizzassoop that is right, got it. If I go to the windows host and try "run" then goto that ip, in never finds it.13:55
pumeustDr_Willis, i'm thinking i should start over anyways...i dont even know where the files are being copied to. maybe i should start over and pay attention13:56
bahaaubuntu is freezing very often and for trivial reasons, is there a way to know what's cosing it to freeze?13:56
zeroburnpizzas: do you have the samba client/server instaled on your ubuntu host?13:56
quantbahaa: freezing in what way?13:56
ohsixbahaa: how do you know its trivial if you don't know what it is?:D13:56
majidkhanNTFS is inconsistent. Run chkdsk /f on Windows then reboot it TWICE!13:56
majidkhanThe usage of the /f parameter is very IMPORTANT! No modification was13:56
majidkhanand will be made to NTFS by this software until it gets repaired.13:56
majidkhanwhy is it?13:56
FloodBot3majidkhan: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.13:56
pizzaszeroburn: yes samba is installed on ubuntu13:56
soopmajidkhan chkdsk /r implies /f ;)13:57
zeroburnpizzas: can you ping from your ubuntu machine to your windows machine with IP?13:57
bahaaquant, ohsix: it just stops responding, and I cant' even move the mouse or do anything, the last time was one minute ago, when I switched between pidgin and firefox13:57
quantbahaa: it's probably a hardware overheating problem13:58
pumeustDr_Willis, is there any harm in running testdisk over and over on a disk if its not damaged? it may take me a few tries before i figure it out13:58
pizzaszeroburn: I do not know how to do that13:58
ruanhow can i rip an icon from an .exe file without screenshot?13:58
bahaaquant, I don't think so, the computer is cold, I think it's software13:58
pizzaszeroburn: from where do I do that? how?13:58

ruanLjL: thanks anyway13:59
ruani'll use it in future13:59
bahaais there any log for what happens when system freezes?13:59
ruanbahaa: syslog?13:59
zeroburnpizzas: terminal can be found at Applications - accesories - terminal14:00
bahaaruan, I'll try, does it record what happened before a force reboot?14:00
ruanbahaa: possibly14:00
ohsixbahaa: are you running natty? or do you have an intel video card14:00
littlebearz1(zeroburn): ping sometimes get blocked though14:00
pizzaszeroburn: I know where the terminal is but not my windows ip :|14:00
bahaaohsix, I think it's msi14:01
bahaaohsix, what's natty?14:01
bahaaohsix, kernal driver?14:01

BluesKajHiyas14:02
zeroburnpizzas: shoe havent worked op windows in looooong time... try in the command prompt typing ipconfig? I think, ill boot a vmware windows just now to follow your steps14:02

aron__ruan and jrib: thanks.14:03
bahaaohsix, thank you14:03
ohsixbahaa: does the mouse cursor still move during these freezes?14:03
bahaaohsix, nope14:03
pizzaszeroburn: got it to work with ipconfig14:04
ohsixbahaa: ok, i haven't got much to suggest then :\14:04
bahaaohsix, thanks14:04
denismfmnm, net just came up14:04
ohsixbahaa: there are logs in /var/log though, you can scour them for information if it isn't a kernel panic14:04
zeroburnpizzas: oka yes i see it is the correct command, now the line that says "IP-address" is your LAN IP, the one you want to ping from your ubuntu machine14:05
ruanhow do LAN ips work? every machine that is on the same internet connection?14:05
bahaaohsix, I'm reading in syslog, but the problem it gives PID not apps names14:05
pizzaszeroburn: when I ping it keeps repeating a string of numbers14:05
MeanEYEruan: IPv4? And can you be more specific with your question?14:06
ohsixruan: dhcp gives them out,  or they are static; other machines that want to contact machines in the lan ask who owns which ip, and get a mac address in the reply; then they communicate directly14:06
bahaaI'm using ubuntu desktop over xubuntu, can I make it pure ubuntu without reinstallation ?14:06
zeroburnpizzas: oka goto paste.ubuntu.com and paste the output of the ping command, and please leave the url after you pasted here for me to chek the output14:06
ruanMeanEYE: yeah ipv414:06
MeanEYEruan: what specificially are you interested in?14:07
ohsixbahaa: yep, just install ubuntu-desktop, it's a virtual package that will bring everything in14:07
ohsixbahaa: after that,  if you want; you cvan remove xubuntu-desktop and the packages no longer being used should be cleaned up14:07
bahaaohsix, I have ubuntu-desktop but the login and such are all xubuntu14:08
Dr_Willisbahaa:  theres ways to change them back. but i rarely bother. :)14:08
ohsixbahaa: i'm not sure how to switch all the theming if you already have ubuntu-desktop installed14:08
ruanMeanEYE: well, how they are assigned14:08
bahaaohsix, and even I've read xubuntu in syslog14:08
bahaaeven I'm not using it14:08
bahaa!!14:08
pizzaszeroburn ok I did that14:08
jjpruan: they can be assigned automatically if a dhcp server exists on the net, or manually14:09
zeroburnbahaa: system - administration - login acreen14:09
MeanEYEruan: they can be either static or dynamic. Static ones you assign by hand. Dynamic ones are assigned by DHCP server.14:09
pizzaszeroburn 192.168.1.3314:09
zeroburnpizzas: oka the last part of the url is a few digits, i need them to view your paste14:09
bahaazeroburn, how to get red of it?14:09
ChogyDananyone know about kernel tunables?14:10
pizzaszeroburn a few digits? I am not sure what you mean14:10
zeroburnbahaa: red or rid? dont you want the login screen to show?14:10
ohsixChogyDan: which ones, they're all documented in Documentation/ in your typical kernel tree14:10
bahaazeroburn, I want the box to be pure ubuntu14:10
zeroburnpizzas: after you pasted the console output of the ping command at http://pate.ubuntu.com it redirects you to another page, and i need that page's URL to view the paste you made14:11
bahaaI'm afraid it's making trouble14:11
Dr_Willisbahaa:  xubuntu uses gdm and just set a differnt gdm theme i belive.14:11
ChogyDanohsix: specifically, Im trying to find out about sampling_down_factor.  I'll look for that Documentation folder14:11
zeroburnbahaa: oka, bottom right there is a button that says unlock, click it to unlock the settings (it will ask for a password)14:11
pizzaszeroburn http://paste.ubuntu.com/586851/14:11
bahaazeroburn, you're talking in xubuntu?14:12
ohsixChogyDan: cpu-freq/governors.txt14:12
bahaazeroburn, or in login?14:12
pizzaszeroburn I only pasted one line, it goes on and on like that I can not stop it in fact.14:12
zeroburnpizzas: oka that means your ubuntu machine sees the windows machine14:12
ohsixChogyDan: considering this is what you're interested in, what are you actually trying to do?14:12
zeroburnpizzas: ctrl C14:12
zeroburnbahaa: after you are loged in14:13
pizzaszeroburn :) that stopped it14:13
ChogyDanohsix: test it  :)   see how much it boosts performance14:13
bahaazeroburn, in xubuntu or ubuntu-dsktop-edition ?14:13
zeroburnpizzas: its the escape sequence for any console command, remember it :)14:13
ohsixi hope performance isn't as vague as it actually is as stated ;]14:13
zeroburnbahaa: rather boot into the plain ubuntu, that way i can follow your steps..14:14
pizzaszeroburn that would be hot tip number 007  I will remember it14:14
ohsixChogyDan: you can turn off the governor and run the cpus at 100% too; default values are pretty good to follow "Average" workloads14:14
bahaazeroburn, where should I press?14:14
zeroburnbahaa: where are you atm? in the loging screen settings?14:14
ohsixChogyDan: you're pretty much just trading off for power, too; and if power isn't a concern you could just disable it and it'll go all fast, all the time; wasting all the energy in the world ;]14:15
ChogyDanohsix: fwiw, the ondemand governor saps about %30 of my cpu strength14:15
bahaazeroburn, I'm using the box, so I'm in ubuntu-desktop using xchat14:15
zeroburnpizzas: haha noprob. Oka now can your windows machine see your ubuntu machine with a ping?14:15
xskydevilxCan I install Gnome 3 on Maverick and be able to select it from the logon screen together with the old gnome or does it just replaces the old one?14:15
zeroburnbahaa: oka good, now open up System - Administration - Login screen14:15
ohsixChogyDan: if thats the case you want to adjust the tunable that picks transitioning to higher power/speed states,  not transition down14:16
ericJinOhioi got a new router using wpa security..my internet works, but every 10 minutes or so it stops for about 30 seconds..any ideas?14:16
bahaazeroburn, ok14:16
redevilhello14:16
zeroburnbahaa: oka now bottom left there is a button that says unlock, press it and type in the password of the current account14:17
bahaazeroburn, I've selected ubuntu14:17

bahaazeroburn, I've selected ubuntu-desktop-edition14:17
pizzaszeroburn: no it timed out14:17
Onepamopaanyone knows whys that ?!14:17
zeroburnbahaa: then that should be the defaul sesion when you log in from now on14:17
Onepamopahi all14:18
bahaazeroburn, and before the login there is this screen that shows xubuntu with the mouse icon, do you know it/14:18
Onepamopaim having very strange issue here14:18
shahid_hi14:18
shahid_Slaam everyone14:18
bahaazeroburn, how can I replace xubuntu with ubuntu and the buttons turning on and off below it?14:18
zeroburnpizzas: oka, so the problem is either firewall or your ubuntu machine, explain your network settup please, aswell as any antivirus software you have14:18
BluesKajericJinOhio, sounds like the router is doing some kind essid/broadcast recycle14:18
zeroburnbahaa: you mean the bootscreen?14:19
bahaazeroburn, yes14:19
asiekierkaso i'm in problems again14:20
zeroburnbahaa: oka give me sec14:20
ericJinOhioI have a windows 7 and ps3 too...it doesn't occur on there..or its so fast its not noticeable..that at least gives me something to google though14:20
asiekierkamy SD card got corrupted (dmesg shows a few Filesystem Errors)14:20
pizzaszeroburn: My host is a 32bit win vista with kaspersky internet security 2011 and I am running a ubuntu 10.10 on a virtualbox14:20
asiekierkafixing or formatting the card is not a problem for me, but it is for Ubuntu (Read-only file system no matter if i try doing it via gui, the disk utility or mkfs.msdos)14:21
bildramerI think I filled my HD and now my VM can't run14:21
bildramerI'll probably have to redo everything14:21
bahaazeroburn, where can I delet a package that update manager has downloaded? (like apt-get claer does)14:21
bildramerlet me write down the error, I can't quite paste it from there14:21
pizzaszeroburn: I just paused protection of kaspersky and tryed the ping again with no luck14:21
ohsixericJinOhio: is it an 802.11n device & router?14:21
asiekierkaoh hi bildramer14:21
ChogyDanohsix: up_threshold?    I dunno.  The sampling_down_factor was supposed to prevent the cpu from changing frequencies as much, which I think was my prob.  It would bump up to a higher freq, than drop down, bouncing between 2 cores.  Anyway, I really don't know.  I don't even see the documentation  for that tunable :(14:22
bahaazeroburn, I want to reinstall the latest kernal so maybe it fixes the freeze prob14:22
ericJinOhiono, G14:22
ohsixChogyDan: it's in Documentation/cpu-freq/governors.txt14:22
bghjhello, how can i activate the nvidia driver?14:22
dydhow can i make nautilus open all folders with 33% view size? setting that on edit--->preferences in nautilus won't fix it, when i open some folders i never opened they are shown at 50%14:22
zeroburnbahaa: /etc/apt14:22
ChogyDanohsix: what version of the kernel?14:22
ohsixit's a git tree, but it's been there for as long as the governors have been14:23
zeroburnpizzas: hmmm thats funny, the ubuntu machine, does it get its networksettings from a DHCP server (such as a router)14:23
bahaazeroburn, didn't work, I want the packages with .dep14:23

asiekierkanot only i can't format the SD card because of fat filesystem errors making it read-only14:27
asiekierkanow i accidentally ejected the whole SD card reader14:27
ChogyDanohsix: and on google, it says that it and the documentation have been removed, even though I still see the tunable on my machine  (which is 2.6.38 atm)     o well, Im confused   :)14:27
asiekierkaand as it's internal i can't just (un)plug it14:27
bahaazeroburn, thanks I'm giving it a shot, but isn't it a problem that they are working on 6.06? (so old)14:27
ohsixasiekierka: i love doing that! haha14:27
asiekierkaohsix is only a reebot left14:28

zeroburnbahaa: no not realy, the basics stay the same, or try: http://news.softpedia.com/news/Change-Ubuntu-Bootsplash-Theme-55237.shtml14:28

asiekierkaone momet14:28
asiekierkamoment*14:28
zeroburnpizzas: I dont know the virtual box you are using14:29
ohsixericJinOhio: those problems are either in the client and its driver, or in the qos/power options the router might be doing14:29
asiekierkafixed THAT, at least14:29
ohsixericJinOhio: but all the specific cases i'm familiar with have been excluded14:29
ozranihi14:30
asiekierkathat didn't help14:30
asiekierkareboot it is14:30
ericJinOhioI'll try to get an updated driver...if other machines are fine, maybe it's just specific to this machine14:30
zeroburnpizzas: read the help file at: http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Advanced_Networking_Linux   that might give you some insight into how to setup the network14:30
ohsixericJinOhio: well, you can try the module backports if you want a "newer" driver; don't install the vendor driver or anything from source if you can help it14:30
ericJinOhiowhen you do a lshw, does that really detect the hardware or just the driver operating it?14:31
ohsixericJinOhio: but given the timeframe and the device, i don't know of any big fixes that would be pertient14:31
ohsixericJinOhio: it asks the OS, checks lspci, does a few things, it's just a uniform way to look at stuff a certain way14:31
BluesKajericJinOhio, sudo lshw -C network14:31
ericJinOhiodebating if I need to open the machine up and see whats really inside14:31
bahaazeroburn, cool :) I've never thought about what I've read now :) ( a personal splash login screen ;) )14:32
ohsixericJinOhio: lspci would be the final word; cuz if the device is lying about its vendor/device id; it won't work anyways14:32
bahaazeroburn, but I think I'll leave it to the weekend :D14:32
zeroburnbahaa: haha, its one way to present yourself a "geek" to your friends :D14:32

ericJinOhiook, confident I know what cards inside...at least I have something to google now, thank you all14:34
bahaazeroburn, ohsix, ruan, : thanks a lot guys.14:34
zeroburnpizzas: the networking between host and guest seems to be troublesome on this software you use, look at the http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/User_HOWTOS page and you'll se what I mean, so many tutorials just on network setup14:34
zeroburnbahaa: any time :)14:35
ohsixdenismfm: the best thing to do is find out why the real driver isn't working for the device, or if one exists14:35

denismfmohsix I spent 3 hours trying to make the real driver work before going the ndiswrapper path14:36
denismfmohsix fyi my earlier request: having problems with belkin surf f7d1102 on a fairly old 32 bit laptop, have followed http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1522815 and dmesg shows "usbcore: registered new interface driver rtl819xu", "system/network tools/devices" list includes wlan0, shows mac 85 62 9e xx xx xx so I assume hardware is talking to adapter but it doesn't seem to be trying to connect to the network, ssid and pw match the one on this working 10.14:36
zeroburndenismfm: try adding the command you use as a "startup aplication" might solve your problem, it ugly, but should work14:37
ohsixah14:37
ohsixdenismfm: did you try installing the module backports, it includes updated drivers14:38
Frotshi guys14:38
jcapincso I just configured vpnc but it is vpn for all services, is there any way to configure a vpn to only redirect one service and not all of them?14:38
denismfmohsix - any suggestion where I can find it - problem machine has no net conn so I need to dl to another machine and transfer by usb stick14:39

FrotsI have an nvidia GT218 and am trying to get dual monitors with xrandr, currently xrandr only show one screen and output14:39
Anon904hello all :)14:39
FrotsI have duplicate screens now14:39
zeroburnchez guys14:39
ohsixjcapinc: a vpn is a network connection, so all traffic will go over it; if you want to proxy one thing you want a tunnel, be it ssh or tor or whatever14:39
=== administrator is now known as Guest71152
ohsixdenismfm: it's in the package manager14:39
Anon904not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but...i cant get on an irc channel i want to get on, says im banned, is there a way i can set up ubuntu to auto proxy when i go to a IRC ?14:40
pizzaszeroburn: yes I would agree, I have been at it for  a long time with endless frustration. Is there a much better virtual machine out there?14:40
zech_does any1 play black ops?14:40
ohsixdenismfm: i'm on natty so i can't tell you the package name, but apt-cache search backports should have a package with wireless in the name in it14:40
denismfmohsix great, but this is a 64bit m/c and the other is 32 bit, so using package manager to get it from this ,m/c will get the 64 bit one14:40
Anon904zech, wrong place =/14:40
zech_ok lol nvm14:40
zech_you guy do php?14:40
jcapincohsix, I know, I have a socks tunnel running just fine, but that does not work for everything14:40

Roasted__I'm trying to set the NTP time on my LTSP thin client servers to match up with our time server here at work. But it's not pulling the correct time. Some do, some don't. It's not a solid 100% are right or 100% are wrong. Where can I go with this?14:43
Samuel2is it possible to run sabnzbdplus as a deamon?14:43
ohsixRoasted__: if the skew is too much ntp wont even try; you need to kick it to something close with ntpdate or something14:44
icerootSamuel2: sure14:44
icerootSamuel2: it is a daemon14:44
Samuel2I did /etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus start14:44
Samuel2and then it starts14:44
tuxx-noh :X14:44
Samuel2but after reboot its not running14:45
denismfmohsix ok, managed to find the package and dl it14:45
Roasted__ohsix, uh, what? where do I run ntpdate? on my servers or the clients or what?14:45
Samuel2then I need to manual start it14:45
ghzthello14:45
icerootSamuel2: daemon doesnt mean its starting at boot14:45
ghzti installed a new video card14:45
ghztbut the graphic quality is still very bad14:45
ohsixSamuel2: you need to add it to a runlevel to start with update-rc.d14:45
ghztwhat's the problem here?14:45
Samuel2I see ohsix14:45
ghztand how can i resolve that?14:45
ohsixRoasted__: the client, it's usually ran once at boot time14:45

Samuel2would this do it?: sudo update-rc.d /etc/init.d/sabnzbdplus start defaults14:46
dydi have 2 users that belongs to ftp group, but if i set chown :ftp -R /var/ftp one use can't access. Why?14:46
Samuel2another question: is there a cli way to see if a deamon is running or not?14:47
ghzthow can i increase my video card quality?14:47
BluesKajRoasted__, sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata , on the pcs with the wrong time14:47
ohsixdyd: the flags can still be wrong on those subdirectories, only allowing owner access; which you didn't change with that command14:47

zheng_I edit a crontab file myown.cron in /etc/cron.d, but it don't be called, why?14:50
jeetuhow to install script during booting time14:50
dydohsix: damn, you were right... i set chmod 777 -R folder now works14:50
Samuel2is upstart GUI based?14:50
jribzheng_: why aren't you using crontab -e to edit your crontab instead?14:50
ghztsipior: i had the exact same issues with the other card, the board video device and the new video card. same poor quality and blurred icon "borders" and so on14:50
ohsixdyd: :O set them properly, 777 is read write execute everyone, group, owner14:50
Samuel2it seems Upstart is installed but I can't find it14:50
sipiorzheng_: try removing the file suffix.14:51
zeroburnHay i just accidently deleted a menu item from my main panel, but i cant remember what is was called, how can i undo the proccess?14:51
erUSULSamuel2: no it is not gui14:51
zheng_jrib, I use my on file for backup .14:51
zheng_sipior, I will try.14:51
Samuel2when I do upstart in cli it says command not found??14:51
jribzheng_: what?14:51
DarsVaedaHi, i need to tunnel two ports from a remote host to my localhost so i could use the remote localhost as my localhost, i use ssh tunnel manager to tunnel and the tunnel is active, still if i put localhost in my browser it still fires up my browser14:52

crash82Hello I need a good msn client for ubuntu , pidgin crashes , empathy doesn't show certain contacts ...14:52
ghztsipior: i had the exact same issues with the other card, the board video device and the new video card. same poor quality and blurred icon "borders" and so on14:52
sipiorghzt: if the problem is seen across multiple cards, i'd check the monitor and connections.14:52
crash82Any other sugestions ?14:52
zheng_jrib, a independent crontab file is simple for backup.14:52

Poisonfibresudo apt-get install amsn14:52
random_amsn isn't bad14:53
sipiorghzt: you needn't repeat yourself, but it is considered courteous to give someone a chance to formulate a reply to what you've written.14:53
jribzheng_: I don't see how14:53
crash82DirtyDawg, random_ Poisonfibre , amsn doesn't support multiple clients :S14:53
jribzheng_: read « man cron » if you want to know about what /etc/cron.d/ is intended for (and how to use it)14:53
crash82DirtyDawg, random_ Poisonfibre , amsn doesn't support multiple clients :S I mean jabber14:53
zeroburnarmando: I cant do that since i dont know the name of the item i just deleted, i wanted to remove the monitor item from the bar, and right click - remove from panel it, and it removed several other icons aswell14:53
erUSULjeetu: install? or run?14:53
jeetuintall14:54
izinucsDarsVaeda: just guessing here.. but some how you need FF to connect on the port assigned to the ssh tunnel.. simply fireing it up and going to localhost doesn't mean *remote* by default14:54
armandozeroburn: did you deleted the panel, or just some items?14:54
izinucsDarsVaeda: ssh is a bit different in that regard from VPN14:54
zheng_sipior, good, it works. why the crontab file cannot have its suffix? I used the suffixed crontab file for some years14:55
zheng_anyway , thank you very much.14:55
zeroburnarmando: just some iems, or rather just one item but it removed the area with for eg the sound preference thingy aswell (where you click to change the system volume without going into system sound)14:55
sipiorzheng_: it's a policy established by the run-parts script, i believe.14:56
hedkandihow does my ecryptfs Private directory get mounted when it's not in fstab?14:56
jeetuerUSUL:both14:56
armandozeroburn: I think that's the notification area. just right click the panel -> add to panel -> notification area and you will restore it14:57

ohsixhedkandi: stuff need not be in fstab to be mounted14:59
ohsixhedkandi: fstab is just one way to tell some tools, including the stuff that mounts things at boot; about some filesystems14:59
