bluesmakerhello i need some help to setup a tv card, i'm a noob08:55
bluesmakeram i in the right place?08:55
xardas008bluesmaker, maybe you could also ask at #ubuntu, there are more people so the chances that someone is experienced with tv cards is even bigger than here (i don't have much experience though)08:59
bluesmakerok, but i dont think it is a complicated thing09:00
xardas008depends on the type of card09:00
bluesmakermy tv card is listed as card=63 is  em28xx09:01
xardas008dvb-t for example can be used in kaffeine, maybe you can try xawtv?09:01
bluesmakerbut i don't know how to make it card=63, it is now card=009:01
bluesmakerit says "You may try to use card=<n> insmod option to workaround that." but i don't know how to do that09:03
bluesmakerxardas008: ok thanks09:09

KummHi! I've just installed Ubuntu and am having problems with playing sounds.15:14
KummI can play sounds for about half a minute or so and then it mutes.15:14
KummAs soon as I unmute it, it mutes itself again.15:14
KummIt doesn't matter whether I use Rhythmbox or VLC.15:14
KummIt works perfectly on my Windows 7 install.15:16
KummHowever, YouTube appears to be working.15:20
KummNope, there it muted, just took longer than usual.15:22
xardas008is it possible to run ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 beside on the same hard drive?16:18
charlie-tcayes, as long as you don't want to run them at the exact same time16:20
charlie-tcayou can install one, then do a guided re-size to install the other one16:20
xardas008guided resize?16:20
charlie-tcayup, automatically resizes the partition and creates a new one.16:21
charlie-tcaYou can also partition manually to create two partitions for the two installs16:22
xardas008ok wish me luck that everything will work without data loss xD (made a backup before so not so bad if it breaks my system)16:31
charlie-tcaGood luck16:32
xardas008what the hell is jockey-backend?16:54
xardas008hm ok program exited so update manager can reload sources xD16:54
xardas008installation worked fine, everything works (ubuntu 10.10 as well as 11.04)16:55
charlie-tcaIt is the thing that installs the hardware drivers16:56
xardas008ah ok16:56
charlie-tcaGreat job! glad it all worked16:56
xardas008the installer is really nice, he found out that ubuntu 10.10 was already installed and made the proposition to do a side by side installation16:58
xardas008everything i needed to do was clicking on next16:58
xardas008and answering some dialogs as usual16:58
johnny77Will any window Manager run without a DE?16:59
xardas008de = desktop environment?17:00
charlie-tcawindows manager requires gui, in most cases17:01
charlie-tcaDE = GUI17:01
johnny77charlie-tca: I know Openbox and fluxbox can be ran without desktop environments. If I wanted to look for other similar Window Managers, how would I know if the WM required a Desktop Environment?17:06
charlie-tcatry it, I guess. Maybe they will work. Xubuntu uses xfwm4, which should work, but probably requires a lot of effort17:08
charlie-tcagnome uses something, that I don't think does wir17:08
charlie-tcawork without the de17:08
xardas008where can i open a request for a special package?17:27
bdfhjkWhat special package? :-)17:30
johnny77I've just encountered another prime opportunity to learn <- That means I screwed up. :)17:31
xardas008latest stable is version 3.6.2, version in natty is 3.5.217:31
bdfhjklatest from debian?17:32
bdfhjkI think You should ask at #ubuntu-devel17:32
johnny77I installed a Command Line Interface and install fluxbox. I just now installed Openbox, but when I run startx, what used to get me into Fluxbox now jut gives me a blank screen with a cursor.17:32
xardas008ok version in debian is also 3.5.217:34
bdfhjkmaybe this is a package problem17:34
xardas008hm i don't know17:34
bdfhjkbut I don't know too17:34
johnny77Ok, silly me. Openbox is the blank screen. But now that I have fluxbox and openbox how do I choose between the two?17:36
okuth0ris there anyone here who can help with a install?17:43
okuth0ri have a machine with SLi setup and am having trouble installing ubuntu17:46
johnny77okuth0r: Sorry, but I can't help. I'm pretty new myself. I recommend hanging around for a bit. There are a lot of very smart people that hang here. Also you can try #ubuntu.17:54
johnny77Is there a way to install a session manager without a login manager?18:03
bioterrorwhat's session manager?18:05
johnny77bioterror: maybe I'm using the wrong words. I've installed a CLI and installed Openbox, Fluxbox, but don't have a way to choose which to load when I run startx.18:07
johnny77I like the command line login, but want a way to choose which to WM to load.18:08
xardas008johnny77, you start with startx?18:09
johnny77xardas008: Yes, maybe that is wrong way. Like I said I install a Command Line Interface from the Alternative CD. After installing that I installed fluxbox. Startx just loaded Fluxbox. But now I have other options.18:11
xardas008in fluxbox?18:12
johnny77No, when I boot my computer it loads into a command line. Then from that command line (terminal) I run startx to load fluxbox.18:13
xardas008and now you want to use an other one?18:13
johnny77I want to be able to choose which one I want to load.18:14
xardas008you can do it manually with the ~/.xinitrc18:14
xardas008and interactiv way maybe only if you write a script18:15
johnny77xardas008: I know on my other computer, I can choose from the graphical Login manager. I was hoping there was something I could install that would give me the choose without having to install a graphical login manager.18:17
bioterrorecho "exec fluxbox" > .xinitrc && startx18:23

johnny77is there a way to not load the login manager when booting?20:45
yofelsure, disable the init service20:49
yofelsudo mv /etc/init/gdm.conf /etc/init/gdm.conf.disabled20:49
yofelif you're using gdm20:49
yofelnatty will have a saner way to do that...20:49
johnny77yofel: well, my problem is I was trying to configure my login manager and I guess I messed it up. Now it says Login failed whenever I try.20:51
yofelcan't help there I fear...20:51
yofelmaybe purging and reinstalling gdm could help20:51
johnny77but I can't get to a command line to do anythign.20:52
yofelctrl+alt+f2 doesn't get you a terminal?20:52
johnny77thank you. didn't know I could do that!!20:54
johnny77that is exactly what I needed!20:54
yofelah, there are always 6 TTYs started on F1-F6 in case you need them20:55
xardas008+ f7 for the desktop environment21:08
xardas008so you have 7 ttys21:08

ubot2Landscape makes the management and monitoring of Ubuntu systems simple and effective by combining world-class support with easy to use online management tools. https://landscape.canonical.com/23:06
holsteinMrChrisDruif: is that a server thing?23:06
holsteinanyways, give that a look wolfik ^23:06
wolfikok i think oneconf is the best because ubuntu peoples made it but maybe its wrong :)23:07
MrChrisDruifholstein: I don't know if it is operable from server (CLI) but I guess it should be possible :)23:07
MrChrisDruifwolfik: So is landscape if I'm not mistaken :)23:07
wolfiklandscape isn't free ??23:14
holsteinin what way?23:14
wolfiki read that is commercial product that right?23:16
MrChrisDruifwolfik: Isn't it a one buy program? No licenses right?23:17
MrChrisDruifYou can try it for free I see...and maybe the link from holstein might give free results23:18
wolfikmy school is very poor, free program is oneconf but don't work :)23:18
MrChrisDruifPuppet is mentioned in the link from holstein23:18
wolfikbut it doesn't work on Ubuntu << :(23:19
MrChrisDruifI've never heard of it thou23:19
holsteinwolfik: did you try it with lucid?23:20
holsteini usually prefer going with the LTS's in those cases23:20
