roothorickjoepa: well, to recover anything, you need to boot the system... if there isn't a bootable OS on the hard drive, and you don't have an external media to boot from, you're SOL, *period*.00:00
ZykoticK9joe75, assuming Grub2 this might help (i haven't looked at it carefully) http://michael-prokop.at/blog/2009/05/25/boot-an-iso-via-grub2/00:00
nerdshellwhat's the difference between sudo su and sudo -i00:00
nerdshellwhat's the difference between sudo su and sudo -i ?00:00
mellois it possible to update to gnome 3 on ubuntu 10.10? and if so how do i do it?00:00
ZykoticK9nerdshell, don't use "sudo su" -- it sets environment variables differently (i don't know the specifics)00:01
roothorickjoepa: unless you're thinking of removing the drive and imaging a partition with a second machine, in which case, cut out the middleman and use the second machine to recover data directly00:01
ZykoticK9mello, gnome-shell is broken in 10.10 (not possible due to some bug)00:01
nerdshellZykoticK9: what do you mean sets environment variables differently ?00:01
nerdshellwhat's the difference between sudo su and sudo -i ?00:01
joeparoothorick: okay, good point, I'll do that00:01
mellook ty ZykoticK900:01
ZykoticK9nerdshell, it sets environment variables differently (that IS the difference)00:02
ZykoticK9nerdshell, don't use "sudo su"... end of story really.00:02
nerdshellZykoticK9: yes, I mean, in fact, how could this be dangerous ?00:02
capletonI'm trying to auto-mount two ntfs software-raid drives, in Nautilus they appear but I have to mount them manually, but in /dev/ they all appear as seperate drives :/    could someone help out?  how can I auto-mount these ntfs arrays?00:02
roothorickI'm not an ubuntu guy, but sudo su seems kinda silly00:02
ZykoticK9nerdshell, not up for debate.  good luck.00:03
mellonerdshell: if u use man sudo in the terminal u can read what the -i command dose00:03
roothorickcapleton: ntfs? software-raid? Wait, what?00:04
roothorickcapleton: you can't be doing Linux MD RAID with NTFS, so... what RAID solution are you using?00:04
capleton:/00:04
capletonit was the one that came with ubuntu server edition... if that's what you're asking00:05
roothorickcapleton: so you seriously... NTFS in Linux MD RAID? Why?00:05
capletonthe drives were already formatted witha  bunch of data00:05
capletonI can mount and use them fine with Nautilus00:05
roothorick...okay, I'm not following, maybe someone that knows ubuntu's idosyncracies will understand what's going on00:06
capletonhah, i hope.   I think it has to do with /dev/mapper00:06

capletonOkay, I semi-figured out the situation, the raid is mapped under /dev/mapper/nvidia_adf1 etc.     But now I don't know whether to use regular mount or ntfs-3g00:16
capletonWhat would be the difference between using regular mount and ntfs-3g?00:16
ayeceecapleton: what's the regular mount?00:16
ayeceecapleton: you should usually use ntfs-3g00:17
capletonjust using sudo mount, idk00:17
=== Guest16268 is now known as Chr|s
capletonkkk00:17
ayeceentfs-3g is read/write, the kernel ntfs driver is read-only.00:17
capletonoh  i c00:18
ayeceentfs in theory offers slightly higher performance, but in practice you'd rarely notice the difference.00:18
ayeceerather, the read-only in-kernel ntfs driver does.00:18
capletonokay.  Now i've gotta find a good fstab tut :/00:18
ayeceeor maybe a manpage00:18

bluenemo_can i chroot into ubuntu from a debian live stick?00:24
GatunoRoxI've installed ubuntu on an USB HDD, full install 640GB ext4, without any internal hard drive sou grub wouldn't install anywhere other than the HDD, and oh well, works like a ccharm on the compute i used to install00:24
ayeceeit's good to know that the deal is coming, that way i can prepare to receive the deal.00:24

armor-64;miles__nope i don't know if somethink like this exist in ubuntu!try norton ghost00:27
miles__ayecee: thanks00:28
miles__armor-64: norton ghost is for windows00:28
ayeceeGatunoRox: perhaps the boot files were placed in a different location on this try, further into the disk. If there's an option to create a boot partition first on the disk, that'd probably fix it.00:28
bluenemo_MrBushido, use gparted, its veeery simple. sudo apt-get install gparted && gparted00:28
ayeceeMrBushido: gparted probably does a better job of it though, if you're within a gui00:29
armor-64miles__:have you try it?00:29
ayeceearmor-64: several program like that exist in ubuntu.00:29
miles__armor-64: why mess up with wine to get a program working, while ubuntu has the same commands built in00:29

shcherbakarmor-64: dd00:30
armor-64miles__: i am no messing a wine into this!a bootable ghost exist(i am using one of this and it's good00:30

armor-64ayecee: around 60euros or more(i live in greece so imagene with the crisis we have here how it will cost)00:35
Guest84647Heylo00:36

ayeceearmor-64: money must be very tight for you, but I suspect you merely have other things you'd rather spend money on.00:36
shcherbakarmor-64: abs is totaly free, in some way you could write own custom solution.00:37
dotblankayecee, for what type of images? ntfs images?00:37
ayeceedotblank: plus, most of the time when I'm cloning, I'm doing it because the data is damaged, so recovering the (maybe) free space is useful.00:37
dotblankor ext2/3/400:37

dotblankpooltable, I suggested vlc because people often have that and it can repair streams00:45

ayeceeejay: using gparted on the ubuntu livecd.00:47

dotblankpooltable, ok.. yea avidemux is your friend00:48
ayeceeejay: I mean, aside from the obvious steps of 1) boot livecd 2) run gparted from livec00:48
dotblankdd214, the network or system admin has to enable imap support on the exchange server00:49
dotblankmost of the time it is enabled i find00:49
Starminnshcherbak: Thanks00:49
ejayi understand that but i mean use the program00:49
ayeceeejay: then you'd use the slider to resize the partition, and then apply the changes, and then gparted makes the changes. it's sometimes time consuming.00:49
dotblankejay, I personally like the new disk manager and prefer it to gparted00:49
pooltabledd214 were you in the US service ?00:50

ejaywhen i insert the disk and hit install now, i hit run alongside windows and it shows 1 partition and says if i continue it will erase my WHOLE other partition and replace it with ubuntu00:50
ejayyea00:50
shcherbakarmor-64: To copy system (does someone expect copy to be bootable?), for raw data: i would use fdisk (or gpated) to copy partition, and gzip/find to copy directory tree and then gzip/find to fill it with files (and report), or just use dd (best if drive is failing)00:50

pooltabledotblank i push play i am playing a wwe file and it say wecome to but it skips the word to00:57

bibornscsherbak: then u mean i have set thet router to block any mac wirelessly??01:11
Guest70696is there anyplace to report "bugs" at the ubuntu.com website?  (I noticed a couple of bad links, and some buttons that did nothing.)01:11
dotblankjeeves_, there can be many reasons.. it could be a router is filtering traffic or the server doesn't have a default gateway01:11
dotblankalso the router could be dead.. or the server could be off etc01:11
bibornsscherbak: then u mean i have set thet router to block any mac wirelessly??01:12
roothorickseriously trying out ubuntu for the first time... running 11.04 beta. I'm really, REALLY impressed. A lot of thought was put into this installer.01:12
ayeceedeadduck: maybe, providing the versions of transmission in 10.04 and 11.04 aren't too different.01:12
dotblankthis is assuming you arnt using PAT01:12
bibornshcherbak: then u mean i have set thet router to block any mac wirelessly??01:12
jeeves_I have a cisco router connecting my 2 subsnets (internal).  I can ping other boxes from one subnet to another (192.168.1.0/24 --> 192.168.2.0/24, and back again), but I can't hit the server.  I KNOW the port is working (since it's serving up DNS, e-mail, etc to the external clients01:12
ayeceebiborn: that's how you described it..01:13
dotblankjeeves_, this is off topic for ubuntu.. I would take it into #cisco01:13
deadduckayecee: ok what can i do to be sure? i would really not have the time to do it manually... i am currently using Transmission 2.00b2 (10722)01:13
jeeves_dotblank, it's not a cisco issue.  I was just there.  and since I can ping other systems on each subnet, it's ONLY the server that refuses to play nice01:13
StarminnWill the GNOME3 install for Natty also work in Maverick?01:14
ayeceedeadduck: I can't think of a way other than trying it.01:14
dotblankjeeves_, is there an acl or firewall?01:14
dotblankjeeves_, acl on the router01:14
jeeves_dotblank, no.01:14
shcherbakbiborn: No, you do A) permit ALL and block SOME, or B) block ALL and permit SOME. Try to hook up with A at first.01:14

StarminnGucci: Now then, you wanted to install XP next to Ubuntu?02:38
GucciStarminn: So yeah I have two different partitions, I installed windows originally. Then immediatly after I installed Ubuntu and created two seperate partitions. But I'm pretty sure I messed up somewhere during partitioning so once I finished installing Ubuntu. It booted and no boot options were shown. It now simply loads into Ubuntu by default. I dont know what happened to windows, but It says my hd is still partitioned like I set it. I02:40
Guccican describe my partitions for you if you want02:40
brightsparkGucci, do you know if Windows still lives on your old partition?  It might still be there even though Grub doesn't show it.02:41
StarminnGucci: So basically, Windows isn't showing in your GRUB menu?02:41
Guccibrightspark: I think it does but Grub doesnt show it.02:42
GucciStarminn: exactly02:43
StarminnGucci: Have you tried manually adding XP to that list?02:43
digitalfizis ubuntu one always so horribly slow?02:43
GucciStarminn: No, which is exactly why I need people like you to help me lol02:44
nickalsdigitalfiz, live or installed?02:44
brightsparkGucci, try opening a terminal and running update-grub.  Off-chance it will solve your problem quickly.02:44
digitalfiznick_h, i set a folder to sync and it has taken over an hour to sync a few mb's of files02:44
brightsparkGucci, sorry, it must be "sudo update-grub"02:45
nickalsdigitalfiz, idk honestly, i dont use ubuntu except on my headless server02:45
Guccibrightspark: ill give it a try and restart, then get back on IRC02:45

digitalfiznickals, i tried it over dropbox to see if it was better but it is like 500x slower so i suppose ill stick to dropbox02:46

YankDownUnderBite,  That allows you to create a password for the root account.04:27

Guest29032tumbleweed I ipod: what does that mean?04:28

BiteI installed ubuntu server, but then installed XFCE over it.04:29
rww!noroot | YankDownUnder04:29
ubottuYankDownUnder: We do not support setting a root password. You're free to do it on your own machine, but please don't offer instructions on how to set a root password or ask for help with setting it. See !root and !wfm for more information.04:29
BiteSo the root account never had a password.04:29
Bite!root04:29
ubottuDo 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/RootSudo04:29

rwwBite: then fix that, instead of using a dubious workaround04:30
arandnecercis: There we go =)04:30
Biterww: dubious workaround?04:30
rwwBite: in this case, start with investigating gksu-properties and whether it's set to use sudo-style behavior04:30
rwwBite: yes04:30
muteHey, a bad video apparently put my ubuntu netbook into a freeze.  I'd rather not do a sysrq+b reboot as I have N04:30

muteHey, a bad video apparently put my ubuntu netbook into a freeze.  I'd rather not do a sysrq+b reboot as I have an unsaved OO spreadsheet I was working on.  Nothing I can't replace.04:31
rwwBite: it's a program. Type alt-F2 and type it in there04:31
muteAnyone got an idea?04:31
necercisarand, [4-tea-2] thank you for help :)04:31
Biterww: Auth mode: Su, Grab mod: Enable.04:32
[4-tea-2]mute: ssh on the netbook, send a HUP to OO and hope it's smart about saving the file?04:32
rwwBite: change auth mode to sudo.04:32
muteOH! I managed to get to a vterm.04:32
Biterww: what does it do? Asking out of curiosity.04:32
mute[4-tea-2]: No sshd running.04:32
Biterww: and should i remove the password i set on the root account? how?04:32
rwwBite: asks for your user password and authenticates using sudo, instead of asking for the (hopefully non-existent) root password and using su.04:32
[4-tea-2]mute: That's bad.04:32
rwwBite: see that RootSudo page ubottu linked04:32
BiteOkay, will, thanks. How do i remove the password for the root account?04:33
Bite!root04:33
ubottuDo 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/RootSudo04:33
mute[4-tea-2]: I wouldn't know how to do it even if I did.04:33
rwwBite: the RootSudo page has the command for it. I don't have it handy.04:33
Guest29032tumbleweed I ipod: so i shouldnt worry about it?04:33
jiltdilyesterday i made video using desktop recorder  and from then there is an image of the video i am seeing in the middle of the screen and it os still there and not going from there how to fix this .Also the word written on anything looks like fade please help me to fix this04:33
Biterww: Thanks for the help. If i were to install xubuntu from the xubuntu iso and not the ubuntu server, would that be preset to sudo instead of su?04:34
new_to_ubuntu1I'm hoping someone can answer this one for. Is there a auto hide function to this Launcher in Unity?  Running 10.1004:34
muteYou really don't need a superuser in this era of single user machines, but having the extra layer of requiring sudo permission is still beneficial.04:34
rwwBite: I'm not sure why it gets set wrong, or if there are other considerations it uses. It works out of the box on Xubuntu though, so I guess so.04:35
Biterww: I would assume so as well.04:35
arandnew_to_ubuntu1: There is in natty, I'm not sure if it is availble in the 10.10 version04:35
Biterww: I just think that there was an issue in installing the window manager over it.04:35
muteooh, pulseaudio's CPU usage is up to 97%04:36
muteThere's the offender.04:36
Biterww: Is there a GUI program that would let me configure grub?04:36
BiteI'm aware of startupmanager.04:36
muteHow should I kill it? 9?04:36
rwwBite: I just use the text configuration files, so...04:36
rww!grub2 | might mention one04:37
ubottumight mention one: GRUB2 is the default Ubuntu boot manager since 9.10 (Karmic). Lost GRUB after installing Windows? See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestoreGrub - For more information and troubleshooting for GRUB2 please refer to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub204:37
arandmute: just pulseaudio -k04:37
arandmute: Normally doe sit04:37
mutearand: I'm in htop.04:37
mutegives me the option of killing with a certain signal.04:38
new_to_ubuntu1arand: thanks.  I have not put Natty on any of my boxes yet? Are you running it? What do you think of it?04:38
Biterww: i just need a quick fix. I don't necessarily want to go back to grub.04:38
nafrihello, has anyone sucessfully installed gnome3 on ubuntu 10.10??04:38
arandnew_to_ubuntu1: #ubuntu+1 For further discussion, I'm only running it in in a VM, hence no unity/effects.04:39
[4-tea-2]mute: 9 (KILL) is for when you want a program to be gone, immediately, no questions asked (so, yes)04:39
new_to_ubuntu1arand: okay, thank you for the info.04:39
jiltdilhelp me please whenever i opens any thing that has black screen it shows my video image that i had made sometime ago over it.how too fix this also the words written above the open thing goes faid04:39
[4-tea-2]mute: HUP is for when you want to give a program a chance to shut itself down properly, just fyi.04:39
arandmute: The proper way to restart pulseaudio is with the pulseaudio -k command rather04:40
[4-tea-2]mute: and TERM is HUP for programs that do different things when you send them a HUP (like reload their configuration or other obscure stuff)04:40
Biterww: i can't find something specific for removing the root password04:40
mute[4-tea-2]: Does TERM work on the others?04:41
[4-tea-2]mute: yes04:41
rwwBite: sudo usermod -p '!' root04:41
muteThe ones I always hear about are 9 10 and 1504:41
Biterww: thanks for everything. I'm off, bye!04:42
jmorrisI just installed ubuntu server 10.10, and i am getting random network drops, if I am SSH'ed into the box ill get booted, cannot connect to in via SMB or http, then all the sudden it will come back, Any guesses where I should look?04:42
Bitepff, skimmed right over that part....04:42
[4-tea-2]mute: historically, 1 (HUP) is "hangup", which causes some programs to treat this signal as "the user might have accidently closed his connection or X server or whatever".04:43
[4-tea-2]mute: that's why I try it first when I want to give an application a chance to save my date.04:44

Seven_Six_Twoc00lryguy, jack is "jack audio connection kit" and you'll want the realtime kernel too. probably the easiest is to install the ubuntu-studio metapackages04:56

aauthormoes, don't forget to update grub afterwards by running "sudo update-grub2" in terminal.05:20
YankDownUnderStronze, Just as an FYI, my missus uses a iPod Nano 8gb, and uses Rhythmbox quite happily...however, it's not a "brand new" item, and she's well aware of how to download music instead of "Apple Store" purchasing...05:21
sysRPLmoes: did you read my comment about holding shft at boot to get to grub?05:21

Lancelotxangua: I don't want to install it just yet in case something goes wonky. I wanted to see if anyone else running Karmic had tried it05:37
lashaLancelot: they made new version of skype for linux ?05:37
puren00bi figured it's because this computer just isn't up to running this OS and playing video at the same time05:37
vyper1877Lancelot, I was runing skype beta without a problem in karmic05:37
shcherbaklasha: xboard and scid is very decend duo, you will need to play around polyglot to get some engines to run.05:37

dr0idhi guiz, just wondering wuts the purpose of hard links ? :)06:01
nunuyabizwhy does my firefox jump up to 80% CPU usage all of the sudden?06:02
dr0idbecause yer loading loads of plugins ?06:02
nunuyabizI don't have that many plugins, and it did that before when I even had less.06:02
YankDownUnderCould be that "special" plugin - the "Eatupresources.xpi"06:03
vyper1877nunuyabiz: flash can also cause this06:03
LancelotYankDownUnder: HA! Nice one.06:03
nunuyabizvyper1877 that would make sense. can it happen even if I'm not playing a movie?06:03

LancelotXD06:04
dr0idhi guiz, just wondering wuts the purpose of hard links ? :)06:04
icedteadr0id: the advantadge of a hard link is that even if you delete the first, original file, the second file that was linked will still have the data06:04
dr0idwell, that's no advantage06:05
puren00bhey guys; how would i go about finding out what grahpics driver i need in ubuntu?06:05
dr0idI mean, if I change the hard link, the original files are not modified06:05
nunuyabizalso there is another process that jumps up to 80% cpu. It's the gdm/auth-for-gdm WTXQ anone know why that hogs cpu?06:05
map7I just upgraded java on my Ubuntu box and now I cannot login to the tax department, where do I find previous packages of java specifically 1.6.0.20 for Ubuntu 10.04 64bit?06:05

ayeceedr0id: if you change the hard link, the original is modified.06:05
icedteadr0id: no, if you change the hard link, the original file is modified too06:05
dr0idohh06:05
dr0idwhy doesn't things work when I try :S06:06
dr0idhold on, will try again06:06
YankDownUnderpuren00b, Are you at the console, or in the GUI?06:06
vyper1877Nunuyabi, look at your system monitor, it has happend to me that I close a session where I was using flash and the process keeps living even after closing firefox06:06

kaushalLancelot: process monitor ?06:07
nunuyabizvyper1877 that would explain why sometimes when I close or open firefox, an audio that I havn't listened to starts playing.06:07
ayeceedin: natty narwhal support is in #ubuntu+106:08
Lancelotkaushal: that's one way to go. If you just want bandwidth usage use the resources tab of the process monitor06:08
puren00bnope it's different on 10.1006:08

puren00bthere's no hardware pane under administration06:09
dr0idDaPenguin: thanks :)06:09
ayeceedr0id: a symbolic link refers to the original by name, a hard link refers to the original by inode06:09
vyper1877Yeap, sounds like that is the problem, I ended up reinstalling a fresh copy of firefox06:09
[nDy]Hi all, am thinking of starting to use linux (a friend has put me onto it) but I listen to Itunes Radio a bit but I guess that isnt available on linux?06:10
ayeceedr0id: a hard link increases the reference count so the file is kept if the original link is deleted. A symbolic link does not.06:10
ayeceedr0id: thus, you can have a dangling symlink (points to a file that no longer exists), but never a dangling hard link.06:11
dr0idayecee: you thought symlink referred by inode too06:11
YankDownUnderThere are all types of internet based radio playing programs for linux.06:11
dr0idI thought*06:11
vyper1877Ask away opera, and someone will respond06:11
dr0idfor faster performance06:11
ayecee[nDy]: rhythmbox has a very similar interface, but I'm not sure if it does Itunes Radio in particular.06:11
icedteadr0id: think of a symbolic link as just a file that contains the original filename that it points to. If the original file is wiped, the symbolic link still points to that directory location but its broken06:11
ayeceedr0id: nope, by name.06:11
DaPenguinjust about any media player will accept an internet url as a playable file06:11
operavype, thank you06:11
ayeceedr0id: the name is often stored in the directory entry though, instead of its own inode06:12

nunuyabizvyper1877 is it possible that system monitor could report everything is sleeping except the gnome system monitor06:15

abhinav_singhhow do i start mongodb service on ubuntu06:37
newby65I am already using 3 partitions for win7 on my Dell N5010, is there any way to dodge the requirement of 2 primary partitions for ubuntu installation?06:38
=== dustin_ is now known as folorn
will_zeus: that's probably a good rule of thumb. buying a 3D camera with bidirectional sound dampning and star wars-style blue projections is less likely to work than your standard lifecam type thing06:38
ayeceeabhinav_singh: perhaps "service mongodb start"06:38
will_newby65: does ubuntu need 2 primary partitions? or do you mean for windows 7 AND ubuntu?06:39
will_newby65: this might not be what you'd be happy with, but wubi would definitely work06:39
ayeceenewby65: you can have up to 4 primary partitions, but only one of them can be "active". however, if the bootloader is installed on the "active" partition or the mbr, that's not a problem.06:39
newby65I am convinced it does need, as /boot/ partition must be primary and then you want swap to be somewhere06:39
ayeceenewby65: swap does not need to be a primary partition.06:40
newby65it doesn't but it must be on an extended one which takes a slot of primary06:40
newby65as a subpartition06:40
ayecee/boot need not be its own partition, but if it is, it should probably be primary. / need not be primary06:41

newby65will_, thanks, I'll have a look at what it is06:41

nunuyabizvyper1877 I have disabled all my plugins, and firefox is running unusually quiet. I'll turn them on one by one gradually until I find the culprit. Then I'll disable it and only enable it when I need it.06:41
newby65ayecee, /boot/ must be on a primary partition, it might be the actual / partition, yes06:42
nunuyabizwhat a difference. this thing has been driving me nuts06:42
will_newby: i recommend following everyone else's advice first - wubi is hardly ideal but it WILL work if you want ubuntu without adding an extra partition06:42
ayeceenewby65: wright06:42
ayeceeright, too06:42
newby65but that still means it takes a slot of primary partition, and I have only 1 remaining06:42
newby65so no place for swap06:42
ayeceenewby65: the swap goes into the 1 remaining, right?06:43
Marcus_123as long as the grub is installed on mbr06:43
newby65there is none remaining after I create the /boot/ (or /) one:)06:43
=== mike_ is now known as Guest91086
ayeceenewby65: you can have many extended partitions within a logical partition, and the logical partition takes one slot.06:43

ayecee^^06:44
Marcus_123just put ubuntu into /06:44
Marcus_123let ubuntu decide for itself06:44
newby65ok, to clarify it a bit: 1st primary - taken up by dell something, 2nd primary - taken up by win7 system restore, 3rd primary - win7 OS, 4th - empty06:45
ayeceenewby65: provided grub is installed in mbr instead of partition, that should be no problem.06:45

RealOptyis ext3 better?07:10
ayeceeRealOpty: not in a way that you'd notice.07:10
ohsixdepends, ext4 has different file allocations and extents, which can make it much faster in ideal situations07:10
RealOptymmm does the journal use less filespace?07:10
ohsixext3 added a journal to ext2 and made some other changes, but nothing i can remember stands out as worth mentioning07:10

ayeceenunuyabiz: in what way?07:14

ohsixRealOpty: unless you mean you want to _use_ hdmi, and send more than pcm stereo07:15
RealOptyoh yeah lol07:15
nunuyabizwasn't ext3 based on ext2 but journaling was added to it?07:15

ruanohsix: how do i revert it? remove the packages?07:22
ayeceesangeeth: the idea that any gnome project would be easy to compile :)07:22
ayeceeRealOpty: kind of the wrong channel, eh?07:22
noisewaterphdsangeeth: i'd just hit http://gnome3.org and see what is available.07:22
cheater00nunuyabiz: but i chose not to upgrade to 10.10 when it first came out, why would it be mentioning the upgrade now?07:22
noisewaterphdsangeeth: and report back your experience because I'm considering checking it out myself07:22
ohsixruan: what's the package name?07:23
RealOptyayecee, nah, just wondering if any one that uses ubuntu uses it :)07:23
ayeceeRealOpty: in that case, yes :)07:23
nunuyabizcheater00 you don't need to upgrade, and you don't have to. Just don't click on the upgrade button and close the update manager07:23
ruanohsix: oss4-base07:23
ruanohsix: and oss4-compat and gtk07:23
ohsixruan: chances are the package blacklists all of the alsa modules too07:24
sangeethnoisewaterphd: I had already checked it out... The beta version before 3 days... It's real awesome... Especially the modifications for chat and Activities, a new addition are superb...07:24
ruanit does07:24
cheater00nunuyabiz: ok, but why is it all of a sudden mentioning the upgrade at all?07:24
ohsixruan: ok purge it07:24
Nick_Meisterhello guys i tried to update my 10.10 to 11 and now it freezes at startup07:24
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Just do it, sudo apt-get install gnome3-session07:24
nunuyabizcheater00 It's just letting you know. I don't upgrade because I want LTS07:24
Nick_Meisteri am able to drop into root shell and start up gdm from there07:24
ruanok brb, rebooting07:24
Nick_Meisterbut other than that normal boot freezes07:24
sangeethnoisewaterphd: I already got it, but not getting any update for the first stable release07:24
cheater00nunuyabiz: but it let me know a few months back already07:25
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Will try to build it07:25
cheater00nunuyabiz: why would it "let me know" again?07:25
icedteaNick_Meister sounds like a video card driver problem07:25
RealOptyayecee, i <3 openwrt. do you use ushare at all?07:25
ayeceeRealOpty: never heard of it07:25
nunuyabizcheater00 it will always let you know. It doesn't matter if it lets you know07:25
Nick_Meistericedtea, so what should i do>???07:25
icedteaNick_Meister:  look at the xorg.log in /var/log07:25
cheater00nunuyabiz: then why did it not let me know every time i ran the upgrade manager for the last 6 months?07:26
nunuyabizcheater00 just a fluke!07:26
cheater00where does this fluke come from? i want to figure it out07:26
noisewaterphdsangeeth: it looks like the gnome3 website hasnt even been updated yet which is wierd. you wouldnt think they would send out a press release before the site is ready? here is a link to the press release though: http://www.gnome.org/press/2011/04/gnome-3-0-released-better-for-users-developers-3/07:26
icedteaNick_Meister: Xorg.0.log, sorry07:26
RealOptyayecee, its a upnp streamer thingy. love it. just needs a the ability to transcode on the fly.07:26
nunuyabizcheater00 it doesn't matter. That's all that matters.07:26
Nick_Meistericedtea, where can i find that?07:26
ruanohsix: thanks! my sound works now07:26
cheater00i don't think you have helped me07:27
ruanevil oss :(07:27
ohsixruan: np, why did you bother with OSS?07:27
icedteaNick_Meister: its in "/var/log" folder07:27
ruanohsix:  a game needed it07:27
ayeceeRealOpty: transcoding on the fly sounds processor intensive07:27
nunuyabizcheater00 feel fortunate, now you have a purpose in life!07:27
ruanohsix: sound was choppy with its version07:27
ohsixruan: padsp or aoss didn't work?07:27
Nick_Meistericedtea, ok ill brb going to go check it out07:27
ruanohsix: havent tried aoss, padsp came out choppy, original game had no sound at all07:27
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Just check this out... Goto gnome.org and then click on the banner that's appearing...07:27
nunuyabizcheater00 I'm really trying!07:27
cheater00i don't think so07:28
cheater00ok, never mind07:28
ruanwoah07:28
ruannow it's not choppy anymore07:28
cheater00maybe there's someone else who actually knows07:28
RealOptyayecee, it is indeed. i just need to find a codec that works on the PS3 and XBMC07:28
ayeceeRealOpty: oh hey, that looks useful07:28
noisewaterphdsangeeth: thanks, found it07:28
sangeethnoisewaterphd: No problem :) !!!07:28
ohsixruan: pulse can get a little messed up if it's long lived, something with the resampler and swapping out; i haven't tracked it down, but it is safe to kill it if you suspect it is messing up, it will restart itself07:29
sangeethnoisewaterphd: It is really cool... I suggest you to try  it...07:29
nunuyabizcheater00 you could be that someone! what an honor!07:29
ayeceei bet rhythmbox would like talking to that07:29
Nick_Meistericedtea, the last thing that it says is NVIDIA using gamma correction and boom EOF07:29
cheater00nunuyabiz: please stop trolling07:29
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Also, for its complete features try some features description in any site...07:29
RealOptyayecee, rythmbox needs a upnp client integrated.07:30
ayeceecheater00: what was your question?07:30
noisewaterphdsangeeth: here is what looks like a decent write up on installing gnome3 on ubuntu from the source repo: http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/install-gnome-shell-from-git-in-ubuntu.html07:30
ayeceeRealOpty: doesn't it have one? I don't have it handy to check07:30
ayeceeRealOpty: maybe as a plugin07:30
ohsixit does have one, you just need to turn it on07:30
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Checking it out...07:31
noisewaterphdsangeeth: ya, I plan to install it this week and see what's up. I'm testing out unity on 11.04 right now, and so far I'm not very impressed at all07:31
RealOptyayecee, i dont remember seeing it in the pluin list07:31
* RealOpty looks again07:31
icedteaNick_Meister: if you hit ctrl+alt+f1 can you return to a console?07:31
Jordan_Ucheater00: To have it only prompt for LTS releases go to System > Administration > Software Sources and change the "Show new distribution releases:" option to "Long Term support releases only".07:31
sangeethnoisewaterphd: Oh !! Let's Wait till it gets perfect !!!07:32
icedteaNick_Meister: or does X just freeze up07:32
Nick_Meistericedtea, nope complete freeze07:32
jingqq5210icedtea: that's tty07:32
icedteajingqq5210: ty07:32
sangeethnoisewaterphd: But, I love GNOME 3... Try it right now... sudo apt-get install gnome3-session07:32
=== newbie is now known as Guest83073
sangeethnoisewaterphd: It's really COOOOOL...07:32
cheater00Jordan_U: that's the weird thing, i remember having set it when 10.10 first came out, and it still is set. what do you think is going on?07:33
RealOptyohsix, where can i find this plugin?07:33
icedteaNick_Meister: where you using the nvidia closed source drivers before?07:33
ohsixRealOpty: in the options07:33
Momenhi all my problem after install lamp and php5 all my systm not work  how can add php4  in server07:34
Nick_Meistericedtea, i was using nvidia-current package07:34
noisewaterphdsangeeth: i may do it sooner than later, ive got a multiboot system and im using natty right now. I'll probably boot back into meerkat to install gnome3 though. Maybe tomorrow07:35
panfisti'm trying to delete a user but i get an error that the user is logged in07:35
RealOptyohsix, its not in the plugin list lol or 'options'07:35
Jordan_Ucheater00: Can you pastebin your  /etc/update-manager/release-upgrades?07:35
NoPasaranhey guys07:35
NoPasarangot a problem07:35
NoPasaranain't there a firefox 4 for ubuntu yet ?07:35
panfistbut, if i ps ef|grep username or |grep uid, nothing shows up07:35
ohsixRealOpty: hm07:36
sangeethNoPasaran: Firefox  4 will be inbuilt in Ubuntu 11.0407:36
cheater00it's just  "[DEFAULT]", comments, and "prompt=lts". (without the quotes)07:36
NoPasaranok thanks07:36
ohsixRealOpty: it's here, theres a rhythmbox-plugins package, but i don't remember having to had it installed and it's worked as long as i can remember07:36
cheater00Jordan_U: ^07:37
Jordan_Ucheater00: "prompt" or "Prompt"?07:37
systemf1join #ubuntu cn07:37
cheater00lowercase.07:37
ohsixRealOpty: hm it's not here anymore, let me look into it07:37
systemf1中文如何进入?07:38
Jordan_Ucheater00: Try changing it to "Prompt" then.07:38
cheater00Jordan_U: ok. how does it look on your installation?07:38
icedteaNick_Meister: can you post the Xorg.0.log somewhere?07:38
ohsixRealOpty: it's in rhythmbox-plugin-coherence, i forgot i reinstalled07:38
Jordan_Ucheater00: Prompt=normal07:38
noisewaterphdNoPasaran: firefox4 is in the package manager right now. just sudo apt-get install firefox07:38
Nick_Meistericedtea, do you happen to know the command line tool to send files to pastebin>>>???07:38
Nick_Meistercause its a different computer07:39
RealOptyohsix, ty :)07:39
Momenany answer07:39
Jordan_U!pastebinit | Nick_Meister07:39
ubottuNick_Meister: pastebinit is the command-line equivalent of !pastebin - Command output, or other text can be redirected to pastebinit, which then reports an URL containing the output - To use pastebinit, install the « pastebinit » package from a package manager - Simple usage: command | pastebinit -b http://paste.ubuntu.com07:39
noisewaterphdNoPasaran: its been there for at least a week, because i installed it about a week ago07:39
cheater00Jordan_U: that has not changed the behaviour of update-manager07:39
Jordan_Ucheater00: Can you post a screenshot?07:39
Nick_Meisteri tried apt-get pastebininit and it said not found07:40
icedteaapt-get install pastebininit07:41
nunuyabizNick_Meister go to paste.ubuntu.com07:41
Nick_Meistericedtea, it did not work07:41
Jordan_UNick_Meister: sudo apt-get install pastebinit07:41
Nick_Meisterdont work....07:41
ohsixcheater00: it has an upgrade button but doesn't say what version? its safe to click on that button btw, it will bring up a readme about the new release; which you can cancel07:42
Chr|sIt should. Dbl check07:42
Jordan_UNick_Meister: Please pastebin the exact output of "sudo apt-get install pastebinit"07:42
Nick_Meisterwth....07:42
cheater00ohsix: no it has a "partial upgrade" button07:42
cheater00ohsix, Jordan_U: http://tinyurl.com/3vhgugh07:43
ohsixcheater00: peculiar07:43
Jordan_Ucheater00: Partial upgrade is not the same as distribution upgrade. Partial upgrade is most likely caused by a PPA.07:43
cheater00yes!07:43
cheater00Jordan_U: hmm..07:43
ohsix(ppas should be purged before upgrades)07:43
ohsixcheater00: ahh that is a different dialogue than most people would think based on what you have said07:44
cheater00ohsix: "purged"? what does this mean?07:44
ohsixcheater00: it doesn't mean a distro upgrade, it means among the packages with new versions, it can only handle partially upgrading them07:44
cheater00hmmmm07:45
Jordan_Ucheater00: Partial upgrade means that some packages have been held back or need to be removed to complete the upgrade. As the message states this shouldn't normally happen with a stable release, unless you are using third party packages / repositories.07:45
cheater00ok, sorry about the confusion then07:45
ohsixcheater00: i was talking about distro upgrades, (say 10.04 -> 10.10, which this isn't is) but the package ppa-purge removes and pins original versions to restore your system as if the ppa hadn't been installed07:45
ohsixcheater00: no problem07:45
cheater00ohsix: so was i - i thought it was a distro upgrade07:45
cheater00how do i find out any details about what cannot be "upgraded"?07:45
ohsixanyone have a clue to how to get aptitude to prefer solutions that will do holds over any installs or removals07:45
Jordan_Ucheater00: Run "sudo apt-get upgrade" in a terminal.07:45
ohsixcheater00: i'd use aptitude, synaptic can probably give you a list too; but i don't use it07:46
NoPasarannoisewaterphd: did you find it in Synaptic?07:46
ljsoftnetwhere do i get skype the full version, not the beta version?07:46
cheater00The following packages have been kept back:  winetricks            ok, makes perfect sense07:47

erkan^what mean %u example firefox %u for a command?07:47
icedtealjsoftnet: I think they only offer the beta version right now07:48

* RealOpty trys gnome307:55
ljsoftneticedtea ok thanks, im gonna try 2.1 which worked, im downloading it rigth now07:55
RealOptyum lol gnome3 reminds me of a crippled netbook running ubuntu07:57
ohsix:]07:57
noisewaterphdRealOpty: you should try unity if you think gnome3 is bad07:59
noisewaterphdI see my self revisiting xcfe in the near future08:00
RealOpty^- same08:00
ohsixor the classic session08:00
RealOpty<3 terminal08:00
noisewaterphdwell, if i have to bother messing with defaults, i slightly prefer xfce anyway so I would go back. gnome2 isnt bad enough to warrant the small amount of work, unity on the other hand definitely does08:01
RealOptydoes flash work in lynx LOL ?08:01
noisewaterphdshould08:02
ohsixRealOpty: it probably could with great effort, or for silliness, but i don't know of anyone who has done such things :]08:02
RealOptyat least someone caught my humor08:03
noisewaterphdapparently you missed mine08:03
RealOptylol :) why am i awake at 3 am?08:04
nunuyabizI noticed it <silently>08:04
noisewaterphdeast coast eh?08:04
Seven_Six_TwoRealOpty, maybe you are like me, and think better when nobody else is around.08:04
RealOptyI do love quiet time.08:05
RealOptyoh yeh now i remember !08:06

nunuyabizOther than gnome, I only use ice on my server08:08
MK`If I put my home directory on a separate partition, is it easier for me to resize that partition later?08:09
kriscoltanyone know the apt-get line for grabbing codecs?08:09
RealOptyI have a NAS that runs OpenWRT, i use ushare to stream my media to 3 xbox's, 2 ps3s, and a few computers. i need a codec that works on all.08:09

nit-witkriscolt, which codecs08:09
tyrezahello there08:09
jigeris there anyone can help please? or is there anyway to download or convert that stream to another wmv or any other extension?08:09
kriscoltum... all of them?08:09
nunuyabizkriscolt do a google on medibuntu08:09
NoPasaranis just say " firefox is already the newest version.08:10
kriscolti think i'm trying to play divx or xvid08:10
tyrezahello there08:10
robbiethe1stHey guys - Simple question: what's a good way of 'preloading' a copy of Ubuntu onto a spare harddisk(from within a ubuntu install)?08:10
phrozenhi I made sudo adduser --system --no-create-home  --group svn08:10
phrozen and now I am trying to connect via ssh and ubuntu wants password to log in - when I turned on users manager then I can not see user svn - where is a problem - how to set up the password?08:10
tyrezahow to ping 3 ip at same time ?08:10
nit-witkriscolt, for general stuff in the terminal sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras  if your runninh=g ubuntu08:10
NoPasaranand i can't find it in Synaptic08:10
tyrezai mean how to ping 3 URL same time08:10
MK`Ah, so I need to have both mounted at all times?08:10
tyrezai mean is it possible to ping :        $ping  www.bing.com www.google.fr www.yahoo.fr08:11
noisewaterphdNoPasaran: sorry, i though it was there by default, it looks like you actually need to add this repository: ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable08:11
tyrezaat the same time ?08:11
Seven_Six_TwoMK`, if you only have / and /home then more or less. You don't have to have /home mounted unless you want to do something user related.08:11
phrozenAdding new system user `svn' (UID 117)...08:12
phrozenadding a system user `svn' (UID 117) to group `svn'...08:12
robbiethe1sttyreza: Uh... why?08:12
phrozen and now I am trying to connect via ssh and ubuntu wants password to log in - when I turned on users manager then I can not see user svn - where is a problem - how to set up the password?08:12
tyrezajust liket that08:12
Seven_Six_TwoMK`, which of course is just about everything except fixing stuff08:12
NoPasaran<noisewaterphd: thanks I will try that08:12

robbiethe1stMJBrune: Hm, let me check. apt may give that info08:14
folornim haveing a minor problem with tor and need the right repos i think possibly anyone know the correct ones so it will recongize and find them when i go to update before the install?08:14
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: probably wont08:15
nunuyabizgaurav_help that probably means that you have installed packeges on your box that are not in the supported reposetories08:15
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Uh... why not? it has a cache file with the entire list08:15
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: ok sorry, i meant it might but that wont help me if its not on a website.08:15
MK`I know you can't alter the size of the / partition without using a livecd, but if I have /home on another partition, can I unmount it to resize it, then remount it, I mean?08:15
robbiethe1stMJBrune: well, at least of all the ones in the repos you have enabled08:15
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Uh... why?08:16
robbiethe1stMJBrune: what are you trying to do?08:16
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: creating a report.08:16
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: i need hardcore statistics.08:16
gaurav_helpnunuyabiz, so what i do08:16
nunuyabizMK that would depend on if you have free space eg. if you want to increase the size08:16
tr3nton!chm08:17
pc_hello08:17
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Well, cite it as being from apt in Ubuntu 10.10. Anyone who actually cares can look it up08:17
pc_i am confused08:17
pc_has any installed justlinux08:17
tyrezathat's not a good solution robbiethe1st08:18
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: ok how many are there?08:18
nunuyabizgaurav_help personally, I would just go ahead and upgrade because I am the one that installed any unsupported packages08:18
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: thats a piss poor way to cite but meh im not a stickler08:18
asadeddin Hey all. I have a problem that i need some help with. We're moving from one ip to another and I need to update the MX record, doing this will give me some downtime because i have to wait for the thing to propagate and then swtich the hardware and software setup08:19
asadeddin<asadeddin> is there a way i can setup the new MX record while keeping the old one so that the new one propagates and then i can switch the hardware and software setup quickly  then i can delete the old record08:19
robbiethe1stAccording to "apt-cache search .+ | wc -l", I get 3501308:20
kurratahi, today my eclipse plugin for c++ broke, anyone knows what could be wrong?08:20
gaurav_helpnunuyabiz, How i Install these unsupported packages08:20
=== mgolisch_ is now known as mgolisch
robbiethe1stMJBrune: So, incase you missed that - 35013 for my system with Universe/multiverse and some other bits enabled08:21
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: :/ thats not accurate.08:22
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: thanks anyways.08:22
Seven_Six_TwoMJBrune, 32,218 for me. 10.10 with everything but sources enabled08:22
nunuyabizgaurav_help are you updating from the update manager? When it give you an error, does it give you a "Details" button?08:23
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Uh... how is it not accurate? I mean... it's going to vary based on the version used, the repos enabled and such08:23
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Best you could get is a per-repo/version table... But even that's subject to change08:23
gaurav_helpnunuyabiz, yes its shows me08:24
MJBrunerobbiethe1st: yeah your pull of wc -l could mean that the description took 2 lines or more08:24
folornim haveing a problem finding the right source's for it could anyone help?08:24
nunuyabizwhat are the details? post them in pastebin or tinyurl08:24
robbiethe1stMJBrune: Doesn't work that way. Pipe it through less witrh a wider console; they all are on one line excluding wordwrap08:25
robbiethe1stMJBrune: and it doesn't count that.08:25
nit-witfolorn, http://www.torproject.org/08:25

Cheerysobersab1e: well I'll need one root nginx to proxy around things, and many user nginx to serve each site in it's own user space.08:31
Seven_Six_TwoMK`, it's possible to resize. I wouldn't try it without a live cd, and I wouldn't do it if I had important data. If you got it wrong you can always start over,,,08:31
Cheerysobersab1e: and I'd need to get them start up on boot08:31

Seven_Six_Tworodhash, not a good idea on a mounted partition and open files. unmounted only, which means live. There are ways to backup without imaging. there are quite a few solutions listed in synaptic08:42
folornyou know much about that torproject theos?08:42
nunuyabizCheery doesn't apache do that? in other words it gives each virtual user its own configuration.08:43
rodhashSeven_Six_Two: Ok, another question: I'm using LVM, can I back up only the system or should I back up the entire disk?08:43
Seven_Six_Tworodhash, I have never used lvm, so I will have to defer to someone who has. sorry.08:44
Cheerynunuyabiz: yeah, and I've got apache running as well, but I'm bored to apache and the messy configs it has.08:44
nunuyabizCheery what solution did you find?08:44
Cheerynunuyabiz: I guess I'll need to write a python script which I'll then position into /etc/init.d/08:45
Cheerynunuyabiz: not sure yet how I'll make it run at bootup08:45
Seven_Six_Tworodhash, a quick search reveals that dd isn't recommended with lvm, but a filesystem backup would be easiest.08:45

MK`does /home contain anything aside from user-specific settings?08:52

tuxx-MK`: not only the user specific settings, but also their files.08:52
MK`yeah of course08:52
tuxx-depends on what your setup is. Is your /home directory on your root partition? Or did you place it on a seperate partition?08:53

MK`but once I do move it08:54

Karen_mruan, let me ask you this.. i have "openjdk-6-jre" installed, and i tried to remove it in favor of installing the sun version but my 'freemind' depends on it.  Any idea how I do this?   swap one with the other?09:36
Guest86223ikonia: tell me the way of making it09:36
ikoniarodhash: same way as with the gui, add/remove the package names you want09:36
ikoniaGuest86223: it's quite complex, you need to research09:36
ruanKaren_m: you don't need to remove it before using sun java.09:36
Guest86223ikonia:y? wats d reason behind it for not doing it?09:36
ruanKaren_m: i'm running sun java and openjdk fine09:36
nunuyabizbenzaldehyde no 12.04 will be the next LTS09:37
Karen_midea says openjdk is terrible, that's why I wanted to get rid of it.  Ok i will install the sun version...09:37
ruanKaren_m: maybe it's ubuntu-restricted-extras09:37
ikoniaGuest86223: because they are not associated technologies, and the kernel packages should be updated by canonical, not you, which can cause a conflict09:37
DNDhi guys how can i increase my cpu usage for testing?09:37
Guest86223ikonia: so there none other way to add any of the package with the kernel09:37
Karen_mdo I use that... update-alternatives --config java  to enable sun over openjdk?09:37

Moopznyuszika7h, what loader do you use?10:51
ohsixMoopz: ok, easy way to install it, use software center; otherwise enable the universe archive in software properties10:52
nyuszika7hMoopz: GRUB10:52

MK`No I mean... I have HDD /dev/sdb. I created 2 partitions on it, [/dev/sdb2][/dev/sdb1]. Then, I deleted /dev/sdb1, and merged it into /dev/sdb2. So now the only one has that name, and I want to rename it10:53
nyuszika7hIt seems different than in older versions... it uses a console font.10:53
vadviktormithran1, I don't think I can imagine right what you want, but I try to suggest one possibility:10:53
Guest40566Empathy 2.32.1 problem z połączeniem do serwera gg10:53
HfXHow do I get color into ircii in ssh?10:54
vadviktormithran1, I would use the watch command in combination of ifconfig and grep. watching the ifconfig data in some intervals and filter the lines with grep10:54
Guest40566 problem z połączeniem do serwera gg moze ktos pomoze10:54
ohsixMK`: that depends on the order of the partitions, if its not partition one i don't know theres a lot you can do besides break out a hex editor; you might get lucky if you read and rewrite the partitions with cfdisk or something10:54
vadviktormithran1, specifically Tx and Rx, but I don't know how would I pipe the commands to filter that specific interface of yours10:55
ohsixHfX: you install a script that does it, ircII doesn't do _anything_ by default10:55
Moopzohsix, can't find that software properties you're talking about.10:55
MK`it's the sole partition on the drive now, encompassing the entire thing10:55
mithran1vadviktor: ok let me try that10:56
ohsixMoopz: oh eh, it's software-properties-gtk, you can start it by itself or got to "software sources" somewhere in the synaptic menus10:56

Moopznyuszika7h, sudo apt-get install startupmanager10:58
nunuyabizMK this is probably the closest you can get to doing what you want to do, but it would be tricky to to this on bootup10:59
MK`I have a livecd I can use to do it10:59
artistikim running pinguyos and my desktop froze. i can still move my mouse around but nothing else. i can access a terminal through ctrl-alt-f1. my question is how can i restore or restart my desktop enviroment without losing the documents i was working on?11:00
nunuyabizMK you need to know where the kernel assigns the devices on bootup11:00
sipiorMK`: if you're really brave, just delete the partition, and then recreate it *with exactly the same boundaries*11:00
sipiorMK`: it probably goes without saying that you'll want to check on the status of your backups, etc.11:01
MK`it's an extended partition. If I deleted it it'd probably still delete the logical paritions inside11:01
sipiorMK`: if the boundaries of the new partition are identical, i don't see the problem.11:01
nunuyabizMK do you want to save what is on the partition?11:01
MK`it's a fresh install of ubuntu, so, no11:02
zepherinfirefox runs slow on my laptop11:02
nunuyabizjust reinstall the more you do it the more you learn. if you do it again you will know ubuntu that much more11:03
MK`so if the entire drive were deleted I wouldn't lose anything. I just want to do something faster than reinstalling the OS11:03
MK`heh11:03
MK`well, I will learn by editing the MBR X)11:03
ThePunisher60hello11:03

artistiki dont want to lose all my homework though. will it save it?11:16
achillionHas anyone had any experience running two distributions sharing one home directory? I suspect configuration files will be a mess but it could work, right?11:16
nunuyabizartistic I used to know a way, but it didn't always work anyways11:16
ohsixartistik: does libreoffice save backups periodically? i think it does11:16
ikoniaachillion: it will work the more important issue is how grub will work, in that with ubuntu 10.10 or later, it won't work well11:16
nunuyabizartistik libreoffice will definitely save it, and from now on......ALWAYS BACKUP11:17
ohsixartistik: so if its been like 15 minutes you can just restart with shutdown -r now; then look for the backups11:17
MK`damn11:17
MK`I configured gparted to recreate the partitions exactly11:17
achillionikonia: How would grub be affected? I'm on 10.04 currently; is there something special about grub on 10.10?11:17
MK`and when I ran the operation it did it the wrong way for some reason11:17
ohsixartistik: you can look in the dir where your file is in the shell & check if theres a backup there to be safe11:17
nunuyabizachillion I do it all the time11:17
MK`so I need to reinstall P11:17
benzaldehydeThePunisher60: there are two unrar and unrar-free dunno which is pertinent, i suppose one could have both11:17

ikoniaachillion: 10.04 will also be a problem11:18
benzaldehydeThePunisher60: and package rar to create rar11:18
achillionnunuyabiz: good to know :)11:18
ThePunisher60okay11:18
artistikwell i was just working on a document and the desktop just froze, so how could i save a backup of something i was working on11:18
ohsixMK`: gparted does a lot more than edit partitions, that is almost secondary to the rest, i suggested cfdisk for a reason D:11:18
ThePunisher60but i didn't find any on package manager11:18
MK`Ah, i see11:18
benzaldehydeThePunisher60: add some repositories to sources.list11:18

achillionikonia: I'm sure there's a way around that. nunuyabiz: how do you handle grub?11:19

obscurant1strob_p, oh ok thanks!12:46
susundbergjussi: with standard mount command, but you might need to get some raid-tools / drivers -- could you specify your problem?12:47
BaramiIn unity 0.2.46 (official package of maverick), Does not support launch program by middle click on icon?12:47
madoohi evry one there12:47
susundbergHugo: Ether would be the simplest choise, any idea why it does not work?12:47
jussisusundberg: the raid drives didnt turn up in places, so Im wondering where to find them. they do appear in fdisk -l though.12:48
rob_pobscurant1st: Perhaps I should clarify... start a new terminal session and do, "sftp user@host" and once logged in, you will have a prompt at which you can put, get, list, etc.  Hope that helps.12:48
susundbergHugo: other options are to download the needed packages on other machine and transfer them via some other medium, like usb stick12:48

susundbergYou should mount _partitions_ not devices12:50
susundberglike /dev/sda1 not /dev/sda12:50

x404xI have a jfs raid6 volume , after a power failure it wont remount, I trying running repair and rebooting but it says the volume is missing, it seems to have no drives attached anymore when i look in diskutils, how to recover this ?13:15
wwwdohsix: gnome-terminal13:16
ohsixwwwd: i'm thinking gnome-session13:17
wwwdIs it possible to do top so that it only looks at a specific users PID's?13:17
sarjo1113:17
ohsixwwwd: you can use htop or ps to look at processes as a tree and find the session leader13:17
ohsixwwwd: try pressing ? it tells you a buch of keys that do stuff13:18
x404xdo i go to "expand array" and add the drives back there ? now it says partially assembled in diskutil13:18

DrengurHello there. I have a problem that I am quite sure is x.org related. My mouse (and keyboard for that matter) seems to lock itself within the focused window, not being able to click anything outside of it. This would include the Gnome-bars, etc. I am using Ubuntu 10.10, Gnome (and Xfce4, it's the same there). I have tried different keyboards, different mice, the problem persists. Any ideas? (I have tried various fixes, but am willing t13:27
Drenguro try again under guidance)13:27
ohsixx404x: i have to admit it does not sound good13:27
ActionParsnipGucci: if you just run update grub without doing anything extra, it will do nothing at all13:27
ohsixx404x: as long as the volume headers aren't damaged it should be able to assemble13:28
GucciActionParsnip: i will try this13:28
ohsixDrengur: what software does it get stuck in?13:28
sipiorx404x: what does mdadm -D report?13:29
GucciActionParsnip: so whats the first thing i type into the terminal?13:29
Drengurohsix: All kinds, it does not really matter what software. Same for xfce4 as Gnome13:29
GucciActionParsnip: sudo apt-get -y install os-prober?13:29
wwwdohsix: Killing gnome-key...seems to have done the trick. Thanks!13:29
GucciActionParsnip: do i include the semicolons and all = sudo apt-get -y install os-prober; clear; sudo os-prober; sudo update-grub13:30
ohsixDrengur: ok, no specific examples? whats happening is a grab and apps do them all the time, but they're supposed to let go13:30
ActionParsnipGucci: its all ONE command, just seperated by semicolons, copy it as ONE command and paste to the terminal13:30
ohsixwwwd: when all else fails kill random things :D13:30

Drengurohsix: I've lived with this since i installed 10.10. I am able to free the mouse by right clicking, bringing up the properties menu, and then clicking outside. The funny thing is that, for instance, if I click within Firefox, I only control the content of Firefox, not even the Title bar, I have to free myself yet again for that.13:31

Frans-WillemHi, I have a 1TB HDD formatted as 100GB ext3, 4GB swap, remaining XFS. The swap and XFS parts are completely empty. Would anyone know what would be the quickest way to clone this drive ? (e.g. faster than just dd, seeing as most of it is just empty anyway)13:49
aeon-ltdFrans-Willem: use a livecd (clonezilla) to just copy the 100gb then use gparted to rebuild the other partitions?13:51
dusfdoes it suggest a problem if update manager tells me "Your system is up-to-date. The package information was last updated 84 days ago"?13:51

dusferUSUL: i will defer to you as i see you in here a lot helping others, i just know it's caused me a lot of problems and when trying to fix my own came across a lot of others with similar difficulties. when i took it to alsa and wine devs they said the issue was with pulse audio refusing to develop in an interoparable way, and that removing it has once again solved my problems :)14:12

Picimordof: Its not a VM, it installs it within a file containing a disk image. It works well, except that there are sometimes issues with updating the bootloader.14:50

ohsixbencc: v4l has vloopback; theres a few things that can write video to it15:00
FoolsRuniceroot: That's what I thought, but they're not there.15:00
FoolsRuniceroot: however, if I run Alien again, it says it can't overwrite the .deb files taht apparently exist somewhere.15:00
dsnydersHi all!  Is there a program that will convert space separated hex characters into ASCII.  eg 86 65 78 69 83 83 65 44 32 76 65 015:00
icerootFoolsRun: sounds like its time for "find" or "locate"15:00
FoolsRunlocate *.deb or something?15:01
iceroot!locate | FoolsRun15:01
ubottuFoolsRun: locate is a command-line file search utility. To make sure its cache is up to date run: sudo updatedb15:01
icerootFoolsRun: locate foobar*.deb15:01
mordofdsnyders:  you could probably write a simple bash script to do that15:02
mordofdsnyders: it wouldn't be that hard15:02

mk0i burned 11.04 iso to usb flash. How to start installing under linux?15:02
rumpe1bencc, http://hardc0l2e.wordpress.com/2010/01/20/fake-webcam-in-ubuntu-linux/15:02
icerootmk0: not a good idea to use a beta if you dont know how to handle it15:03
rumpe1mk0, difficult... much easer is booting from stick15:03
mk0i cannot boot from stick.15:03
aero_why not?15:03
benccrumpe1: thanks. trying15:03
mk0Smth is wrong with PC15:03
mk0with memory or hdd15:04
mordofmk0: does your motherboard support it?15:04
mk0yep15:04
rumpe1mk0, "cannot boot" is not a sufficient error report15:04
mk0who is speaking about error support?15:04
FoolsRunlocate cannot find the files15:04
mk0I just  want to run installer under 10.0415:05

tlvbDo anybody know what the difference between the 2.2Beta skype ubuntu package and the static/dynamic ones are? the md5sums of the binaries does not match. While it is reasonable that the static/dynamic ones are different of course, the binary in the ubuntu deb matches _neither_ ...!?15:05
atlefmk0: what did you use to create the usb stick15:05
mk0erhhh why?15:05
mk0the stick works okay in other PC's15:05
rumpe1mk0, well... then i would recommend installing it via virtualbox... but its much trickier15:06
mk0not a virtual box/ just run onstaller and install to a separate partition15:06
mordofmk0: there is an installer for that in ubuntu. you should download that15:06
mordofah nevermind15:07
mordofmisread something on the downloads page15:07
IsoLinCHiPOk, so after looking up xrandr, I read that basically the gnome monitor applet uses xrandr. Unfortunately the gui doesnt seem to provide settings for the default monitor, anyone know where the monitor applet saves its settings? maybe that would be hackable :)15:07
FoolsRunThis is ridiculous. I'm going to have to format my machine because I can't find these .deb files15:08
mordofFoolsRun:  just out of curiosity - did you do an updatedb before locate?15:08
FoolsRunmordof: I did15:08
dr0idlocate can find files15:08
mordofk, just thought i'd check to make sure, heh15:08
tlvbFoolsRun: try using find instead15:09
FoolsRunfind *.deb?15:09
mordofso on a side note - why is the 32 bit version of the OS recommended over 64 bit?15:09
dr0idfind -name '*.deb' ;)15:09
IsoLinCHiPFoolsRun: find / -name 'NameOfIt.deb'15:09
rumpe1FoolsRun, maybe try "sudo find / -iname '*.deb'"15:09
tlvbfind is very powerful, you can have regexes and stuff if you want that too...15:09
atlefmordof: on a system with 4gb of ram or more, get the 64bit. otherwise 32bit will do15:10
mordofatlef: alright. 64 bit it is~15:10
mordofatlef: i forgot about that limitation, thanks for the reminder... heh15:10
atlefmordof: you are welcome15:11
DasEimordof: that doesn't fit so much noadays nomore, former there where some apps hard to get in 64' , but lso can use pae, 64 is fine, use that15:11
DasEi!pae15:11
ubottuTo use more than ~3.2GB RAM on a 32bit system you can install the PAE-enabled kernel. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnablingPAE for more info15:11
geckosenatordoes anyone know how to run two programs, each one forced to use a different  network adaptor by default?15:11
atlefDasEi: im old :-)15:12
mordofDasEi: ehh.. i'll just install the 64 bit OS15:12
FoolsRunfind doesn't find the files I need15:12
DasEiyes15:12
aminhoHi guys15:12
aminhofor gmail and ubuntu users, what do you use to get inbox notifications in Gnome15:12
dsnydersgeckosenator, some programs allow you to choose the network adapter15:12
icerootaminho: what about the indicator-applet?15:13
mk0it's quite confusing that there's an desktop installer under win and under linux there's no anything.15:13
DasEiFoolsRun: locate is another possib', but database must be set up before15:13
geckosenatordsnyders: no good, I want a generic way15:13
tlvbFoolsRun: what is your exact command (just to be sure)15:13
aminhoiceroot, i'm taking a look at it15:13
geckosenatordsnyders: like a shell or something that blocks some interfaces15:13
FoolsRunsudo find / -name *.deb15:13
mordofmk0: not really.. you're already in linux. you shouldn't need to install the new OS - besides.. you can't reinstall the entire OS while in it anyway. i'm not sure what you're trying to accomplish by the route you're taking. a dual boot?15:13
geckosenatordsnyders: the best I know of is running qemu and only linking a certain adapter15:13
FoolsRunit finds some .debs in apt archives, but not the ones I converted with Alien15:13
tlvbyou need to escape the *.deb as either \*.deb or '*.deb'15:14
DasEiFoolsRun: looking for  a deb ? try *deb15:14
mk0not reinstall. Dual boot of course15:14
aminhoiceroot, looks like it needs evolution set up ?15:14
DasEiFoolsRun: or have some patience for : sudo updatedb && locate *deb15:14
mordofmk0: only reason for the windows one is so that windows users can try the OS without a format/partition management15:15
mordofmk0: you can't use a CD?15:15
PiciFoolsRun: Did you have write access in the path where you ran alien?15:15
dsnydersgeckosenator, You may be able to do something with permissions15:15
IsoLinCHiPgeckosenator: While just about any reasonable daemon will normally provide you with a option to specify which address (read device) to listen on, you could probably do some trickery with iptables15:15
mk0i have no cd. Only usb and iso15:15
DragonbutHai15:15
geckosenatorIsoLinCHiP: I want programs like firefox and transmission, not daemons15:15
geckosenatorIsoLinCHiP: maybe I could use a proxy server though15:15
atlefmk0: there might be something here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes15:16
DragonbutWhat are some cool things you can do with Ubuntu desktop that you can't do with Windows?15:16
mordofmk0: you may need to fix the problem with why your USB won't boot up15:16
rumpe1mk0, well... if your pc doesnt boot from usb, you also could create an entry in grub2 for an iso... i guess.. and boot this way15:16
FoolsRunPici: yes, and I ran it with sudo15:16
geckosenatorIsoLinCHiP: any suggestions for which filter to use in iptables?15:16
mordofrumpe1: oh hey.. that's a cool idea :o15:16
rumpe1Dragonbut, you can get rid of the desktop and be still able to work ^^15:16
mk0it boots from usb. But this days something got broken15:16
atlefmk0: but do you want to dual boot different versions of ubuntu?15:17
PiciFoolsRun: Whats the issue with running alien again?15:17
mk0yep, this is the aim15:17
IsoLinCHiPgeckosenator: hmm, ok, if you want specific programms, either look into tsocks and setup a socks proxy server with filtering, or try a search for iptables and transparent proxy, thatll probably get you started in the right direction15:17
mk0to have lts and betas beside15:17
FoolsRunPici: I converted some RPMs and I can't find the .debs. They're not in the directory I ran Alien in, and they're not found by locate or find. I can't convert again because it says the .debs can't be overwritten.15:18
HuskiesHi all!15:18
rumpe1mk0, this sounds like something for you: http://www.webupd8.org/2011/02/how-to-boot-iso-with-grub2-easy-way.html15:18
geckosenatorIsoLinCHiP: cool... the really tricky part will be getting bittorrent to work using multiple interfaces for the same file :-P15:18
dsnydersDragonbut, You can have the program run on one computer and display on another.15:18
DragonbutThat's all?15:18
IsoLinCHiPgeckosenator: tsocks hooks into the system calls for network, so maybe a search for 'like tsocks' or 'LDPRELOAD network' gives you usefull hits15:18
PiciFoolsRun: Then it sounds like they are indeed in the path where your .rpms are.  What makes you think that they arent?15:19
FoolsRunPici: the fact that they're not there. ls, ls -a, and ls as root shows only the .rpm files15:19
atlefmk0: then you need separate root and home direcories15:19
HuskiesWho can use Metasploit Framework?15:19
mk0i know this, i'd prefer just launch iso that is on usb stick now. Afair smth similar to this i saw in 10.0415:19
mausHi there. I'm experiencing a weird problem. I'm not sure whether it's ubuntu related or not.  But since I'm on ubuntu I'm asking here. I have a large text I need to paste into a textarea in  firefox. Unfortunately, I can't paste a snippet when it becomes longer than a 1000 lines or so.  It can be pasted to text editor, but browser just does nothing then I press 'paste'. Any ideas?15:19
stevecamhow do i change the max volume that i can go up to when im using the gnome desktop environment, alsa lets the PCM volume go over 0dB and I do not want this to happen15:19
geckosenatorIsoLinCHiP: it would be best if the kernel could do this and send every other packet to a different interface15:19
PiciFoolsRun: ls *.deb  doesn't reveal anything?15:19
IsoLinCHiPgeckosenator: If your not on a LAN that wont give you any speed increase, as your 'dialup is still th
