qikkyActionParsnip, I did what you said about installing ubuntu with windows 7 but now I cannot boot up windows 7. It won't show the OS in the grub menu but it shows windows and it would go into recovery mode.00:01
PetePortyqikky: You need to fix your master grub boot loader00:02
qikkyCould you please tell me how to do so?00:02
PetePortyqikky: I used https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RecoveringUbuntuAfterInstallingWindows , but it seems your problem is the other way around?00:02
swartggg3: I use sshfs00:03
* hylian is having fun with sugar (sucrose)00:03
ggg3thanks swart will check that out00:03
metallicoi have two network cards. do i need to separate them somehow in the interfaces file?00:03
meganerdjstoone: sleuthkit/autopsy might be able to help, but if the file system was ext3/4, you are probably SOL.  Formost on the entire drive might work, PITA though.00:04
metallicothat article only shows how to do one00:04
PetePortyqikky: http://www.webupd8.org/2009/05/fix-restore-grub-boot-loader.html That seems easier, though.00:04
PetePortyAnyone thinks they can help me with my problem?00:04
ggg3swart, thanks but I need to mount the physical hard drive. There is no running machine for me to do that with. That leads to my only option now: build a FreeBSD box to read the disks.00:05
swartah sorry I misunderstood00:05
PetePorty:( ok, I'll try later.00:05
metallicook, restarting networking now.. lets hope i will come back online :)00:05
jessicaBRhello, any idea of how I can add the repository of this package (http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/218653) so that I could install it?00:06
Camer0nhow do you unmount cds?00:06
ggg3swart: I know there's a package of tools for diddling for such partitions w/ Ubuntu, but they don't let you actually access the files.00:06
jstooneHi guys, I've never been that good at compileing I checked and gcc and the two lib's are installed but when i ./configure it says my c++ compiler cannot create executeables00:07
metallicowhen i restarted networking i got a SIOCDELRT: No such process00:07

silvertopjessicaBR, did you ask a question00:10
JeruvyjessicaBR: just tell us your problem as complete as you can in one line.00:11
SuperstarCan someone help me recover my NTFS partition please? I can't remember what I did but my data is intact, I don't need to do a sector by sector recovery, I just need to undelete a partition. I'm fairly new to Ubuntu as a desktop, can someone point me in the right direction please?00:11
JeruvySuperstar to recover ntfs you should be using data recovery tools,  try ##windows00:12
=== peregrinator_six is now known as synaptic_six
jessicaBRsilvertop, Jeruvy,  er..., I'm interested in installing glade-3 package on my ubuntu, but that package does not exists in my synaptic... So I thought I could add a repository (PPA). I found this (http://www.ubuntuupdates.org/packages/show/218653) but I have no idea where to get the repository...00:13
high-rezSo anyone here have experience with KVM?  I'd really like to be able to install guests directly to LVM volumes, and not have to convert from qcow2.  Any ideas ?00:13
MeanEYEjessicaBR: Easiest way to find it is to go to launchpad.net and search there.00:13

SuperstarJeruvy Do you know of any applications for Ubuntu? Other data recovery tools in windows get the MBR, BootSector and MFT but will only display the files and only allows you to create an image of it. I have Hirens Boot CD but it crashes upon startup because the drive is missing its bootsector00:14
cybrhumanCamer0n: unmount isn't a command, umount is probably what you want00:15
jessicaBRthanks guys00:15
JeruvySuperstar: seriously I wouldn't consider doing recovery in Ubuntu.00:15
SuperstarJeruvy why not? there's no chance of data loss00:15
CarlFKSuperstar: apt-get install testdisk; man testdisk00:16
SuperstarCarlFK thanks I just finished installing it as well00:16
meganerdSuperstar: sleuthkit/autopsy can do some file recovery, there has been some work parsing the MFT recently by some security researchers.  Nothing really easy that I know of.00:16
JeruvySuperstar, I have tools that work perfectly for ntfs.  Why would I use something that isn't native to the fs?00:16
AxlinredDEADresolve: you can hit escape to bring up the text, or, i found this on a forum: "You just need to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file, find the line that is used to boot your kernel, and remove the 'splash' option from it. If you want even more text, remove the 'quiet' option as well."00:17
meganerdSuperstar: fixntfs is like a lite version of chkdsk, but you usually want chkdsk00:17
redDEADresolveAxlin, thanks00:17
Superstarmeganerd no chkdsk won't recover mft or bootsector00:17
JeruvySuperstar correct.00:18
metallicostill no joy00:18
KINGOFSWORDSanyone recommend good program to keep track of internet traffic/usage?00:18

PetePortyHey guys, I have a problem... I don't know what caused it, since I wasn't home at the time (my mom said the computer just "turned off"...), but when booting into Linux (after the OS selection screen), the output is the following: http://pastebin.com/dCA8K5aE Then it just becomes a black screen.00:19
KINGOFSWORDSoh...i use 3g fone and have 80gb cap so wanted to keep track00:19
JAQK-JokerDo you think AT&T is a good internet provider?00:20
meganerdSuperstar: foremost can sometimes carve files out of a disk image (or raw disk device), autopsy and sleuthkit are probably your next best bets00:20
LjL!recovery | Superstar, i wasn't following, but some of these can find lost partitions00:20
ubottuSuperstar, i wasn't following, but some of these can find lost partitions: To rescue a broken system, boot the alternate install CD and select "Rescue a broken system"00:20
LjL!recover | Superstar - sorry not that, this00:20
ubottuSuperstar - sorry not that, this: Some tools to recover lost data are listed and explained at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DataRecovery - Recovering deleted files on !ext3 filesystems can be virtually impossible, although methods that might work is some cases are described at at http://www.xs4all.nl/~carlo17/howto/undelete_ext3.html and http://projects.izzysoft.de/trac/ext3undel00:20

jessicaBRsorry for bothering again, but still can't find out a binary to install glade-3 :( I would like to find the repository URL and add it to synaptic sources. And then just intsall the package with synaptic. How can i do this? Couldn't find the repository in launchpad...00:21
LjLJeruvy: likely doesn't matter to tools like testdisk and gpart00:21
SuperstarIs it me or does Ubuntus desktop look sexier than Windows 7 and Macs O/S?00:22

edbianqikky: grub resides in two places.  The first is in the MBR (master boot record).  That's on the harddrive (not a partition).  The other place is in a folder called /boot.  You can put /boot on another partition. You do not have to.00:40

edbianJAQK-Joker: It's not like a TV :)00:46
Juv1228KINGOFSWORDS, incorrect, chrome is the modified version of chromium00:47

edbianJuv1228: typo :)00:50
sndngnrKindari, appears that you have the sdb/sdc rw devices defined as /md0 so raid is overlooking the partition table... but it could still cause problems00:51

qikkyhello, after installing ubuntu 9.10 (and deleting vista partition) and dual booting windows 7, grub2 cannot longer identify windows 7 but it identifies windows vista and when I boot into that it goes into recovery mode. Does anyone know how to fix this?01:15
Juv1228airtonix, correct01:15
=== teen-sexy-girl is now known as teen-ugly-girl
airtonixJuv1228: i doubt pyusb is actually pointing at 64bit libusb on 64bit systems... it just tries to load libusb so if you had both.. how would it know which one to get ?01:16
=== teen-ugly-girl is now known as PolarPanda
hylianqikky, there is a command for refreshing the grub menu, which is escaping me at the moment.. it might help...01:17
airtonixJuv1228: unless of course the python bindings libusb provides are named libusb32 or libusb6401:17
Juv1228it would not, but once i get 32bit libusb installed i can worry about that01:17
qikkyHow could refreshing the menu help?01:17
Juv1228i believe it just calls a getlib or something to load the lib from whatever path it finds01:17
SuperstarSay you ssh into a remote vps and you're in the middle of filling in automated prompts to configure something in an application and the terminal disconnects because it's been idle - is there anyway to ssh back and return to that shell?01:18
Juv1228so i can just load it in python manually or specify a path01:18
airtonixSuperstar: use byobu or screen after your initial ssh login01:18
rwwSuperstar: nope. That's why people use screen.01:18
ubottuscreen is a window manager for terminal sessions, also useful over SSH. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Screen01:18
hylianqikky, it's the update-grub command. sometimes the old grey matter doesn't fire on all cylinders, so to speak. :)01:18
airtonixJuv1228: no idea01:19
Juv1228my question isnt about loading it in python tho01:19
Juv1228its actually getting the 32bit version installed01:19
Superstarrww thanks dear01:19
qikkyhylian, since it identifies the vista partition still, is it possible to edit that out with the windows 7 partition?01:19
Juv1228i assume i can just download the 32bit debs and install those to a non default location?01:19
gavdaricould anyone please help me with window decoration in unity?01:20
qikkyhylian, i think the settings are inside grub.cfg file but I'm not sure if sda4 is the only thing I edit.01:20
Superstarairtonix: yeh i didn't think01:20
hylianqikky, well, i am not a grub 2 comando, not an expert. here is the list of commands, and if you don't feel too overwhelmed with the console, you could do it.. :http://members.iinet.net/~herman546/p20/GRUB2%20Bash%20Commands.html01:21

ubottuFirefox 4 is the current stable version of Firefox. Current versions of Ubuntu do not have it (see !latest), but there is an unofficial and unsupported PPA that you can use by running the following command: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install firefox01:27

codex84after you install the kubuntu-desktop onto ubuntu how u use it?01:32
hyliananon__, from what i have read, the two likeliest culprits are either pulse audio, or a corrupted registry file. also some hardware causes this.01:32
anon__so what should i do?01:32
hyliananon__, how long ago did you install wine?01:33
anon__i just now updated it to the newest version01:33
gavdariedbian: sorry I was trying to return to the GUI mode, yes it worked, but I don't know how to restart x from there01:33
hyliananon__, wine 1.3, or did you mean wine 1.201:33
edbiangavdari: well x is running if you have grahpics at all.  You should restart gdm:   sudo /etc/init.d/gdm01:33
weecoldid you have ctrl alt bs01:33

RoDiMuS-XHow do I boot Ubuntu into command prompt from grub01:35
gavdariI restarted gdm but everything is the same01:36
hyliananon__, well, it's probably not the corrupted registry then... your two best options are to find out what your audio card is, and look up that with reference to wine, or to wholeheartedly remove pulse audio.01:36
anon__which would have a better chance of working?01:36

edbiangavdari: can you start your gnome-panels?  gnome-panel&  ?01:37
edbiangavdari: or perhaps the window manager:   metacity --replace&01:37
hyliananon__, to be honest, wine has worked so well for me, that i have had very little experience troubleshooting it. You might want someone else's opinion first. If it where me, I would remove my audio card and add another. I only have about 70 of them lying around form old machines...01:38

X-SuMiDoR64bit = more than 4Gig of Memory02:03
Ben6464 bit is twice as good as 32 bit02:04
edbianLetsGo67: It allows you to access more than 3.2Gb of ram and it is more efficient  :)02:04
edbianlaptop_user: Nope.  Is that working for you?  (sometimes those buttons don't work at all)02:04
edbianBen64: ahahaha02:04
LetsGo67edbian: So why doesn't Ubuntu give me a popup saying "There's no point of installing 32 bits" instead of just freezing twice on me?02:04
hylianUbuntuNoob, what version are you running? this seems to be a mute point, it looks like this problem was solved in 2005...02:04
steff12321UbuntuNoob: err, because Ubuntu doesnt need more than 1gb to operate, 2gb would be more than enough, 4GB would let you run almost all programs, if anuthin, 6Gb should let you run all of the programs ar=t a great performance... for ubuntu, anything above that is just wasted02:05
kwtmBen64:  I'd say 33 bit is twice as good as 32 bit. And then 34 bit is twice as good as *that*. :)02:05
edbianLetsGo67: I have no idea why the installer is freezing.  You can install Ubuntu 32 bit on 64 bit hardware.  It won't hurt anything.  Some people prefer it (but not really anymore)02:05
LetsGo67edbian: But isn't Flash etc. not available for 64 bits?02:05
slackaholichaick !02:05
wjd86im trying to change permissions on a directory and its files, im looking at this webpage about permissions and im scratching my head...02:05
edbianLetsGo67: Linus Torvalds says that if you assume your users are idiots only idiots will use your software02:05
Ben64LetsGo67: flash works fine in 64 bit02:05
UbuntuNoobhylian: 10.10 very recently installed02:05
=== dabbish_ is now known as dabbish2
edbianLetsGo67: Flash on 64 bit is a solved problem02:05
X-SuMiDoRlol ebian I like that saying02:06
LetsGo67edbian y Ben64: and since when?02:06
onecrazycati'm setting up two dhcp servers and i want one to be a backup… any good docs on how to do this?02:06
laptop_useredbian, havent tried. working on homework. im sure it will though. just thought that i had to query it in terminal (remember coming across a link that told how)02:06
UbuntuNoobsteff12321: oh good point. i wasnt challenging btw just curious. knowledge greedy if you will02:06
HyperShockreally? what about Ming the Merciless?02:06
LetsGo67edbian: Not really nice.  :(  :@02:06
edbianLetsGo67: IDK.  I don't use flash on 64 bits.  I wish I didn't have to use flash at all02:06
UbuntuNoobalso, my ocmputer just decided to hibernate again as i was looking for an answer online....02:06
Ben64LetsGo67: for a pretty long time, adobe released it, then hid it, and released it again02:06
hylianUbuntuNoob, hmm, it's funny but most of the posts are dated 2005 or older, but their is 1 new post for 2010... i'm gonna have to do some digging, brb02:06
edbianlaptop_user: there is probably some way to figure it out in the terminal02:06
UbuntuNoobhylian: thanks, ill try too i guess02:07
Ben64uh oh, its gone02:07
edbianLetsGo67: Linus is not always the nicest :)02:07
steff12321UbuntuNoob: nah, just explaining :) Anyways, anything above 10GB, even on windows should run just about anything and more02:07
HyperShockUbuntuNoob, check your screen saver section and then your power management features, make sure you wack the "make default" button once you find it.02:07
laptop_useredbian, there is... just cant find that link again and dont remember how i came across it02:07
laptop_useredbian, ok 2nd question02:07
wjd86how do i change the owner of a dir from root?02:07
Ben64its there now02:07
loquitusofborg1WHere do I get the sphere desktop option in Ubuntu? I only see the cube02:07
LetsGo67edbian & Ben64: it is annoying02:07
edbianlaptop_user: ready and waiting02:07
Ben64wjd86: chown02:07
UbuntuNoobhylian: also, just to save time maybe, it doesnt say atiixp-modem codec reset timeout, i believe it there is no modem and it says "atiixp codec reset timeout"02:08
wjd86ahh kk02:08
edbianwjd86: sudo chown newOwner filename02:08
UbuntuNoobsteff12321: yeah i was surprised when i saw 16 GB the most ive see in 8 i think02:08
UbuntuNoobHyperShock: will do thanks02:08
KNUBBIGloquitusofborg1 something like compiz-plugins-extra02:08
HyperShockwjd86, as root do "chown -R user:user <dir>"; highly suggest you do "man chown"02:08
henriklIs there a way to create an upstart job that automatically starts and stops whether it has a network connection, i.e. whenever a LAN cable is plugged in or out? Is that what 'start on network' does?02:09
UbuntuNoobalright, i changed screensaver to 15 mins and hibernate to 30 mins so well see02:09
ariel_hello, I did a big mistake and would like to get my bottom bar back with the work space on the right side, how can I get this back.  I don't know how or what I pressed to make it go away.02:09
edbianariel_: right click the top one and choose 'add new panel'02:10
loquitusofborg1KNUBBIG: thanks pal02:10
edbianlaptop_user: what is this second question?02:10
KNUBBIGloquitusofborg1 np :)02:10
veggteppeAnyone got any experience running the game League Of Legends, in ubuntu using either Wine or Cedega?02:10
RoDiMuS-Xariel: gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/panel02:10
RoDiMuS-Xrm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel02:10
RoDiMuS-Xpkill gnome-panel02:10
HyperShockariel_, on the top bar, right click and choose new panel, then you see the bottom bar comes back, then right click it and choose add to panel and go through the list and add things back and move them as you please by right clicking them, unlock and lock as necessary02:10
laptop_useredbian, ok my mute button is blue, and when muted.... red... works fine... but when i shut down (muted) then restart... it restarts (muted) as it should, but the mute button isnt red this time.... is there a way to make it remember [ if muted -> button red ]02:10
steff12321Whats the package for mysql?02:10
KINGOFSWORDSariel_ then right click on things you want and choose move02:11
RoDiMuS-Xariel: that will restore the default gnome panels02:11
ariel_great t/y02:11
steff12321Whats the package for mysql?02:11
edbianlaptop_user: I don't think so.  Sounds like a disconnect between the hardware and the mutedness02:11
edbianlaptop_user: You could figure out what module it is and remove it then re-instert it02:11
HyperShocksteff12321, goto your synaptic and search for it, the answer will be revealed there. :)02:12
laptop_useredbian, what do you mean? how to figure out module?02:12
thetejuis there a way to improve performance for flash player?02:12
hylianUbuntuNoob, you have me stumped. This appears to be possibly a audioo codec problem OR a network/internet problem. since the two are utterly unrelated, i am at a loss. can someone else help UbuntuNoob? I will keep looking02:12
UbuntuNooblaptop_user: my laptop should display a light when it is muted and no light when it isnt, and since i installed ubuntu it hasnt lit up when i press it to mute the sound, although the sound does mute just fine02:12
steff12321HyperShock: Thanks you :)02:12
edbianlaptop_user: look in sudo lspci -k   (maybe it shows up there)  It will be called 'driver' though.02:12
* HyperShock nods at steff12321 02:13
wjd86edbian ; perfect now i can save my html :P02:13
UbuntuNoobhylian: hmm ill try to pay attention to if it happens only when sound is present then to see if it is an audio or network problem perhaps?02:13
thetejui have two system,, On one with intel on laptop,, the flash video plays fine.. while.. other system even though it has nvidia 430 GT the flash video hiccups02:13
thetejuThe source is same..02:13
UbuntuNoobits really more inconvenient than it is crippling; i can press the power button and be back to where i was within a minute or so02:13
HyperShocktheteju, do you have the proper nvidia driver activated?02:14
edbianwjd86: hurray :)02:14
thetejuHyperShock : I have glx 26002:14
hylianUbuntuNoob, that's the strange thing about ati ixp, it can be either. there are plenty of things on google to suggest this. it can be audio codec related, modem related, or network related, or all three... strange.02:14
zrutyI have a raid card in my ubuntu box; how do I know how to addresss it? It is at this moment only configured in the BIOSes.02:15
RoDiMuS-XWhat is the purpose of XChat-GNOME seems to be missing functionality02:15
laptop_useredbian, http://pastebin.com/emXyCsri02:15
Tophwhat is the KDE desktop name. I'm attempting to download it02:16
hylianUbuntuNoob, either way this is related to ati hardware. have a ait gfx card or motherboard?02:16
BiteWhere has software sources been moved to in the new gnome?02:16
jiohditoph used to be kde4 I think02:16
edbianlaptop_user: I was afraid.  I don't see it there.  Not sure how else to find out the module.02:16
edbianlaptop_user: I know lsmod lists all the modules currently being used but that output is somewhat cryptic.02:16
hylianBite, it's hidden. you can access it through synaptic, or go into the menu and make it visible again.02:17
UbuntuNoobhylian: i believe it has an ati graphics card, what is the terminal command to check my hardware?02:17
KNUBBIGUbuntuNoob should be lspci afaik02:17
Bitehylian: where exactly?02:17
Tophjiohdi,,, sudo apt-get install kde4   doesn't work either02:17
laptop_useri was thinking it might be that hp company driver thing02:17
MaRk-IRoDiMuS-X: xchat-gnome is a stripped version of the original XChat with less features and only the most common settings included (KISS principle).02:17
HyperShockUbuntuNoob, "lspci"02:17
edbianlaptop_user: the driver being used is almost definitely the open source one02:18
laptop_useredbian, could it be line 64?02:18
RoDiMuS-XMaRk-I: so there is really no advantage to using Xchat-gnome02:18
hylianBite, if you right click the main menu, and go to edit, it's somewhere in system, either preferences or admin, i'm thinking admin.02:18
HyperShockToph, you're going to have open your synaptic, and install kde from the meta packages you can find them under the meta categories.02:18
MaRk-IRoDiMuS-X: other than simplicity, no you can install the regular xchat if you like02:19
UbuntuNoobhylian, im guessing it has an ati motherboard and gfx card because i see ati pop up multiple times for host bridge, pci bridge, etc02:19
RoDiMuS-Xtry: sudo apt-get kde-base02:19
hylianUbuntuNoob, not certain, i have an nvidia card, it works well.02:19
edbianlaptop_user: could be.  That's a weird thing.  sudo modprobe -r k8temp and see what happens02:19
TophHyperShock,,, thanks,, going there02:19
RoDiMuS-XMaRk-I: I just tried it for the first time and thought I was crazy because I was missing stuff02:19
laptop_useredbian, no feedback02:19
hylianUbuntuNoob, if you type nano /var/log/XFree86.0.log this should give you some clues hopefully, or you could gedit /var/log/XFree86.0.log02:20
jiohdiToph, also kde-full02:20
UbuntuNoobhylian: i do know it has an ati gfx card, i remember that02:20
edbianlaptop_user: Do the buttons light up / do anything?02:20
WeThePeoplePici, the skype wrapper cannot be found. do you know what is going on02:20
BiteI can't find the package ms-sys. Has it been removed?02:20
MaRk-IRoDiMuS-X: lol yeah, kind of "confusing"  I guess is just for emergencies when you need IRC help02:20
RoDiMuS-XAnyone else using Unity3D?02:20
hylianBite it might be part of the winetricks add ons now.02:20
laptop_useredbian, yeah they work fine... just two arent mapped 'dvd' and 'quickplay' and the thing with the mute button not staying red on reboot02:21
UbuntuNoobhylian: i tried both of those, both were blank02:21
hylianRoDiMuS-X, didn't know 3d was even available yet.02:21
edbianlaptop_user: put the module back in.  sudo modprobe k8temp   that wasn't it02:21
RoDiMuS-Xyup I have it working with my ATI 4200 finally02:21
hylianUbuntuNoob, are you running a 64 bit version of ubuntu, because that would account for their being blank.02:21
wjd86anyone mind helping me with a noob issue?02:22
Tophjiohdi,,, that did it02:22
RoDiMuS-XWhats going on wjd8602:22

jiohdiGatunoRox, partitions?02:24
RoDiMuS-Xwjd86: wanna make it easy, try this http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html02:24
laptop_useredbian, like i said... buttons work except the two unmapped. and then that mute button not staying red if it boots as muted02:24
hylianUbuntuNoob, it should either say x86-64 or x86-3202:24
edbianlaptop_user: I'm thinking if you unload and load the module you can fix the red button problem.  As for the mappings, just set those up in keyboard shortcuts02:25
RoDiMuS-Xif you are seeing <?php phpinfo(); ?> when you visit the page that means PHP module is not loaded02:25
hylianUbuntuNoob, for instance, my machine: x86_64 GNU/Linux02:25
KNUBBIGnormally apt-get install apache2 php5 should do everything for you :o02:25

GatunoRoxjiohdi: I boot Grub4DOS fine from syslinuz installed on the firt partition of my 640GB USB HDD, but it is unable to look after 137GB of my drive, as it stalls and crashes02:26
KNUBBIGmysql-secure-setup did everything I needed (only using it for development)02:26
hylianedbian, your right, but thats what uname -a gives me.02:26
wjd86so should i switch to xamp?02:26
wjd86or could i just fix this02:26
RoDiMuS-XI thought 64bit processors where still built on the x86 arch?02:26
wjd86and btw, i am totally new to this as well02:26
edbianhylian: what does it say exactly?  i686_64 or something?02:26
hylianUbuntuNoob, so that's not the proble, your running straight out 32 bit. hmm.02:27
moesUbuntuNoob, cat /etc/issue02:27
laptop_useredbian, how to load/unload module?02:27
edbianRoDiMuS-X: They are.  But technically they are their own architecture.  (obviously they're different than regular x86)02:27
hylianedbian it says x86_64 GNU/Linux. (copy and pasted from terminal, after typing uname -a02:27
wjd86im absolutely surprised at the amount of peer to peer help that comes with the ubuntu experience02:27

UbuntuNoob is what i got02:27
edbianlaptop_user: sudo modprobe <moduleName>  and sudo modprobe -r <moduleName>   figuring out the module name is the hard part02:27

wjd86the -cli ?02:28
tjiggi_fohylian, edbian : it says :Linux AMD64 2.6.32-30-generic02:28

KNUBBIGwjd86 only sudo apt-get install php502:28

wjd86and possibly thank you, lets test it02:29
edbianlaptop_user: that's what I mean.  I don't know02:29
RoDiMuS-Xwjd86: nothing wrong with being a n00b02:29

UbuntuNoobhylian: its all good thank you very much for the attempt02:42
hylianUbuntuNoob, well, thanks, but I wish i could have helped you out...02:42
arandUbuntuNoob: Generally, you don't, it mainly boils down to the fact that in almost all cases, it will be easier to backup and reinstall.02:42
sevithCan anyone point me in the direction where I can find everything that is compiled into the ubuntu kernels? Google yields no results and ubuntu website docs are really what im looking for.02:42
hylianUbuntuNoob, i would definetely try the 64 bit os, it might solve your problems.02:43
UbuntuNoobgah thats my third install in 2 days02:43

laptop_userhylian, what is launchpad?02:58
hylianGatunoRox, i take that back, grub rights the data to the right device, but doesn't know it needs to flip the hd2,2 (for instamce to be hd0,0. so when you re boot, grub tries to load from 2,2, which either doesn;t exist, or is just in the wrong spot, i.e. hd 1,1 or hd 0,0 instead of hd 2,2. (this is for my machine and not on everyone's., it will be different for you slightly.)02:59
Seven_Six_TwoFlameTai1, I don't know of an easy way, but if you look for the wallpapers that look like a stack, then find them on your filesystem, you'll also find an xml file nearby that dictates how they change. You can use that as a template02:59

hylianUbuntuNoob, there are several, but one i like is mc or midnight commander. very usefull for running around your files tructure without typing a million words a minute.03:11
Seven_Six_TwoUbuntuNoob, yes, just start with the next directory down. If you're in /home/myuser and you want to go to /home/myuser/a/b  use  cd a/b03:11
taglassUbuntuNoob:  sure.  lets say I'm in my home directory and I wanted to be in /home/taglass/Documents/spreadsheets.. just type cd Documents/spreadsheets.03:12

Seven_Six_TwoGatunoRox, I believe there's a few utilities that will let you roll your own iso from an install, or from a custom filesystem03:13
KNUBBIGUbuntuNoob cd Wallpapers03:13
Seven_Six_TwoUbuntuNoob, drop the leading /   that means you want to start from the root of the filesystem03:14
KNUBBIGcd /Wallpapers would try to access the folder Wallpapers on root level03:14

Seven_Six_TwoGatunoRox, I've never done it, but there are utilities available from synaptic that will let you create your own live cd. so you get what you need installed in to a special place. whatever kernel you want, and apps. then the utility makes an iso (cd image) that you can burn. It might be harder than that, but you don't have to do it all by hand03:16

UbuntuNoobHyperShock: basically. the thing i linked changes the wallpaper based on the time of day, which is essentially a very slow slideshow03:41
UbuntuNoobhold that thought, i need to reboot03:42
SPEL3OUbuntuNoob, well that sounds feasable, but you need to find where Gnome stores the image for your backround, and make a script that swaps out the images periodically03:42
SPEL3OPersonally, I do not know03:42

GatunoRoxlike it's stuck03:44
GatunoRoxIt won't boot Grub03:44
Nick_Meisterhylian, yah it worked like a charm thanks03:44
hyliannoobguy, your problem somehow is still broken packages, i would fire up synaptic, and have it do a rfepair on broken packages and see what it gives youy for idea/errors.03:45
GatunoRoxbut was able to boot syslinux03:45
UbuntuNoobso yeah i guess my question would be how do i go about making a wallpaper slideshow via some sort of script03:45
GatunoRoxthat's why I asked if tere was a way to use syslinux as the bootloader03:45
KNUBBIGJust don't use netbeans :p The code it produces is ... well just terribly ugly03:45

ggg3To solve all manner of grub problems in dual booting windows, I've used "Smart Boot Manager" available as an image on UNetbootin, home page http://btmgr.sourceforge.net/about.html - I think it's awesome.03:47
luxurymodeI'm having trouble using chown. Terminal keeps telling me I'm missing an operand after the directory I'm targeting...03:48

KNUBBIGcd ~/src ?03:53
noobguyhylian any idea?03:53
edbianhylian: link please   (your keyboard right?)03:53
hyliannoobguy, sorry man. ok from what i pieced together, it looks like you recieved a package that is damaged. you may have to go to /var/cache/apt/archives and remove the package, as well as removing it from /var/lib/dpkg/info, however, if this is somehow being caused by a bad net connection, like a damaged wire, it may happen all over again.03:53

edbianlaptop_user: can you show me the link to the article?03:54
luxurymoderhizmoe: no03:54
laptop_userhylian: i think i need to add a line that will say something along the lines of "if boot audio muted then write led state red" i know thats not the true command but in translation...03:54
rhizmoeso, your home dir has a subdirectory named "src?" what KNUBBIG said.03:54

edbianlaptop_user: This is the guide you want IMO https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting03:59
danielcg25Sudo: unmount: command not found03:59
hylianGatunoRox, my way of doing it was to use a program called gag. then i set up one of the boot time options to the usb hdd. however, gag adds a cutesy menu system in the begiining that resembles win 98 on roids. maybe boot commander is more your style. i use gag because i know gag in and out.04:00
edbiandanielcg25: There is no 'n'  it's umount not unmount04:00
edbianlaptop_user: Try and follow that and see if you get stuck.  Come back here with specific questions04:01
danielcg25Thanks! It's working now04:01
hylianGatunoRox, well, i may atleast be able to get grub behaving itself for the internal hdd. if you remove the usb drive, then you should be able to boot? (then use update grub?)04:01
edbiandanielcg25: no problem04:01

rumpe1cbilljones, #ubuntu+104:02
cbilljonesrumpej thanks04:02
cbilljonesrumpel ^^04:03
edbianlaptop_user: xev  in a terminal.  Then press the buttons you wanna know about and you can see what their special codes are in the term.  It also tracks the mouse in the white window04:03
codex84how u upgrade to 11 bet?04:03
edbianhylian: I know the feeling hahaha04:03
laptop_useredbian; the troubleshooting? thats a child howto from the second link. with xev, do i press enter first or just xev then the button?04:03
edbianlaptop_user: you type xev and press enter.  Now it is 'running' and it records all your mouse  / keyboard activity.  then you press ctrl + C to stop it.  It is used to get the numerical values of strange keys and buttons.04:04
hylianwell, all this research shaprens my ubuntu-fu. *ugh*04:04
codex84how you upgrade to 11.beta?04:04
cheshire_foxHey, is there a CLI based wireless card config tool installed by default on ubuntu?04:04
HyperShockwow "xev" rocks!04:04
laptop_useredbian, thanks again04:05
edbianlaptop_user: you might have to click in the white box before some keys get registered04:05
edbiancheshire_fox: THere are a number of tools.  What exactly are you trying to do?04:05
edbianxev is cool04:05
hyliancheshire_fox, not that i know of04:06
hyliancodex84, this is a howto on that very subject: http://zeeis.me/upgrade-to-ubuntu-11-04/04:07

cheshire_foxedbian: I was given a HP laptop that vista died on.  Decided to install Ubuntu on it.  Turns out the nvidia chip is fried (it's to late to do a claim), so I'm going to use it as a server.04:07
luxurymodecan someone tell me the easiest way to install from source? i've downloaded a chat client (smack) and wanna install...04:07
joelixnyIs there something similar to \n (new line) but for backspace?04:07
GatunoRoxI'm going nuts with this lol xD04:08
edbiancheshire_fox: sudo iwlist scan    should show you wireless networks.  If it does you're in good shape and you can configure it in /etc/network/interfaces.  If it does not list networks you have to get the card to work first (which might be hard)04:08
edbiancodex84: I don't think you can upgrade to the beta from a normal release04:08
ayeceejoelixny: \b, i believe04:08
GatunoRoxalmost giving up with the full installation Idea04:08
cheshire_foxedbian: card works, I'm sure of it04:08
edbianjoelixny: No04:08
hylianGatunoRox, anything else i can help wreck? sorry man. i can try and help...04:08
raidocheshire_fox: iwconfig04:09
edbianayecee: What would that do?  Delete the character before it when the file is read?04:09
Danielcg25Well, I formatted the partition using DiskUtility in Ubuntu, and Windows installer says it's un-allocated space.04:09
edbiancheshire_fox: It works in linux?04:09
ayeceeedbian: yes04:09
cheshire_foxedbian:yup, out of the box04:09
edbianjoelixny: nevermind!04:09
GatunoRoxhylian: you're the best support I've had this week xD, no complains04:09
edbiancheshire_fox: then is iwconfig and sudo iwlist scan, and sudo ifup wlan0  and a number of others :)04:09

cheshire_foxwhile I'm here, does anyone know of a way to get X to run soly on the processor.04:10
GatunoRox*distro noob here lol*04:10
edbianjoelixny: Are you writing it to a file?04:10
joelixnya php script04:11
hylianGatunoRox, yeah, it's what i use for my clients sticks because he needs flash player to work "outta da box" (i'm form wisconsin)04:11
edbiancheshire_fox: The graphics card has a monitor out.  If the motherboard has a monitor out then you can plug that in but I'm guessing that since this is a laptop there is no onboard video.  That is, you HAVE to use the graphics card in there04:11
laptop_useredbian; http://pastebin.com/p3115PJa line 1 is mute 11 is unmute no other buttons touched04:12
edbiancheshire_fox: Just run it headless.  You can install graphical applications and run them remotely on some other Ubuntu computer04:12
GatunoRoxhylian: no use telling me where ya from xD I wouldn't suspect as I'm not a native speaker04:12
edbianlaptop_user: This isn't a question :)04:12
hylianGatunoRox, in his case he needs a system that loses all history, i think he does some shady things whilst running that usb key.04:12
laptop_useredbian, so i need to tell the computer that if muted to send command 1-10. how?04:13
GatunoRoxhylian: you never know xD04:13
edbianlaptop_user: I don't know.  Where are you in the how-to ?04:13
laptop_useredbian, i mean if muted upon boot04:13
edbianlaptop_user: I've never done this before either :)04:13
hylianGatunoRox, yeah, so once simply mepis is powered down, all naughty-ness dissapears, atleast on his end.04:13
GatunoRoxhide his p0rn from his wife maybe?04:13
laptop_useredbian, glad to help with the learning curve ;)04:13
cheshire_foxedbian: well, for a while I had a desktop.  That was immediatly after uninstalling the nouveau driver.  I had a feeling it was running on the processor. But I'm not sure.    I just want a graphical interface just to make sure certain website interfaces this server will be producing actually work04:13
* hylian nods04:14
edbianlaptop_user: I don't see a 10 here04:14
cheshire_foxhylian: I read mepis as 'me ****' :o04:14
hyliancheshire_fox, :)04:14
hylianreminds me of how the germans feal about mr. pibb.04:15
edbiancheshire_fox: Some hardware has to run the graphics.  Either it's on the motherboard or it's a graphics card.  Each bit of hardware will have a VGA / DVI out at least.  Since this is a laptop and it has a graphics card I'm betting there is no onboard video.  This means you MUST use the graphics card.  Unless you x-forward over ssh.  I do it all the time.04:15
laptop_useredbian, lines 1-10 is all mute (one single press of button), 11-20 is all unmute (one single press of button)04:15
GatunoRoxhylian: what's the newest release?04:16
cheshire_foxedbian: then explain to me how I was able to have a graphical interface04:16
edbianlaptop_user: Let me read your guide.  Maybe we can figure out how to toggle the light without changing the muted-ness04:16
edbiancheshire_fox: The card was not fried?04:16
edbiancheshire_fox: You can run the graphics all 'on the CPU' what you're really doing is using onboard video (on the motherboard).04:17
hylianGatunoRox, mepis is at 8, but "simply mepis" is at 11. i use simply because it comes with the software my client needs.04:17
UbuntuNoobcan i make an if then script involving a period of time (i want a certain background to appear during certain times)04:17
cheshire_foxedbian: it has to be.  Even with the propritary drivers installed all I would get when x started using it is black and white lines and a weird kernel panic04:17
=== Jens is now known as Guest92398
laptop_useredbian, which guide? the one on linux.aldeby.org?04:18
edbiancheshire_fox: That could be caused by the graphics card being bad or the driver being wrong.  (sounds like a bad card though if you didn't even get cli)04:18
hylianUbuntuNoob, i think i get what your trying to do, but i don't think it would be a if then anymore... just bash scripting it?04:18
edbianlaptop_user: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Hotkeys/Troubleshooting04:18
edbianlaptop_user: But I am swamped right now ;P04:18
UbuntuNoobhylian: i have no clue what im doing to be honest lol how would i do it that way?04:19
laptop_useredbian; no worries.... we will pick up tomorrow. i have a test in the a.m.04:19
hylianUbuntuNoob, sorry man, my bash scripting skills are just a hair above the noobish. i could probably look it up, but i don't know of the top of my head.04:19
edbianlaptop_user: alright.  Good night.04:19
edbiancheshire_fox: Maybe you can explain to me in greater deal what is going on with this laptop.04:20
UbuntuNoobhylian: ill look it up no worries04:20
cheshire_foxedbian: actually, after removing nouveau, x probably (by default) loaded vesa, right?  In that case the graphics card isn't completely fried (meaning I can use it unaccelerated).04:20
cheshire_foxedbian: where should I begin?04:20
MK`Is CONFIG_MAGIC_SYSRQ enabled in the default kernel compile with Ubuntu?04:20
edbiancheshire_fox: If you got graphics running on the card at all (accelerated or not) then the card is fine and we just have to find the right driver. (or just use Ubuntu without accelerated graphics.04:21
ejvUbuntuNoob: i scripted it for you, cuz you're special :)04:21

cheshire_foxedbian: cli04:22

MarcelCis there any other nice and pretty artwork, not just dot's? :)06:18
Wolfno clue06:19
MarcelCWolf,  I remember that first Ubuntu was not with bootscreens and funky stuff, was just a small distro in the start06:19
red2kicMarcelC: Search for plymouth -- There should be some themes included. However, you only see it for really short time so putting your efforts into this kind of thing is pointless.06:20
MarcelCi don't know why my memory associates ubuntu with some cat wallpaper06:20
MarcelCthank you06:20

chipmenkwhy does my ubuntu live dvd hang on one machine w a hardware raid?06:27
Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, that's not enough information... how far does it get?06:28
chipmenkfive dots changing red to white06:29
Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, there are a few reasons. did you md5sum the iso? did you check the disc for defects?06:29
Guest3577i wanted to ask06:30
Guest3577which ubuntuversion to install06:30
chipmenkdefect check in process06:30
Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, during the boot, hit F12 (someone will correct me if I'm wrong) after you get through grub06:30
chipmenkmd5sum process unknown to me06:30
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, that's a matter of personal choice. either 10.04 (LTS) or 10.1006:30
kim27I used to be able to move my windows off screen up, but for some reason I can't. Is there a setting to enable this?06:31
Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, in a console, type     md5sum ubuntu-whateverversionyouhave.iso    and wait for the output (a long string)06:31
sevithah Sweet running on a new kernel :)06:32
Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, then compare it to the md5 sum listed on the ubuntu site for that image06:32
Guest3577okay... @ Seven_Six_Two i ordered two CDs... Ubuntu 10.10 KDE and gnome.. the question is should i download 10.04 ?06:32
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, you can. the point of LTS versions is to give people a choice who want to stay on the same version and still get updates. Servers and businesses need that kind of thing. If you're playing around and learning, it doesn't matter.06:34
Guest3577Uhm ...06:34
kim27alt f7 used to let me drag windows that were too big to see up, but for some reason the top of my screen is the far it will let it go these days. It is really annoying.06:34
chipmenkprocess:508 GLob Warning getpwiuid failed due to unknown user id inable to open /dev/sda06:35
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, my point is, if you're going to download, you might as well get the latest non-beta available. 10.1006:35
Guest3577it is on my productive machine @ Seven_Six_Two but i musnt go on the same version06:35

Guest3577i meant no german :D06:37
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, again, personal choice. there are fans of each, some of both. some of none too06:37
sevithSeven_Six_Two, Which do you use? :P06:38
Seven_Six_Twosevith, I have both installed. I used to use kde when it was 3.* but I didn't like plasma when it first started, so now I use gnome06:38
shaneomack91I think KDE is performs better, in my opinion.06:38
Guest3577noo kde is performs slower06:39
Guest3577i think that's clear :D06:39
shaneomack91Not on a Nintendo Wii, xD06:39
sevithSeven_Six_Two, Yeah. I hear ya. KDE was good when they didnt go with a vista ish feel..06:39
Guest3577the problem is06:40
Guest3577i dont want go to Unity later ...06:40
shaneomack91Believe it or not I actually managed to run KDE on a modded Wii. GNOME was a different story...06:40
Seven_Six_Twosevith, yeah. It's a good concept, but was too new when ubuntu replaced 3.* in my opinion. It was too rough06:40
yuskhanzabcan i ask when the official date release for 11.04?06:40
Guest3577so the thing is06:40
yuskhanzabcant wait06:40
Guest3577yuly, 29.april06:40
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, you don't have to. It's always your choice. If you want you can use blackbox, TWM, sawfish, whatever you want.06:40
MarcelCthere is a packages witch pop up a console when you hit F12, what is the name of that console?06:40
Logan_!natty | yuskhanzab06:41
ubottuyuskhanzab: Natty Narwhal is the codename for Ubuntu 11.04, due April 28 2011. Help and support (only) in #ubuntu+1. Natty is beta and is not currently intended for production systems.06:41
shaneomack91But anyway, KDE has more user-friendly features. GNOME is better if you like your CLI stuff.06:41
sevithSeven_Six_Two, Yeah lol.06:41
Guest3577Seven_Six_Two, i want use gnome. not unity... but i heard in ubuntu 11.10 there isnt a possibility to use gnome ?06:41
yuskhanzab28, thx :)06:41
Seven_Six_Twoshaneomack91, sorry, but that doesn't make sense to me. they're both gui. they both give nice access to cli06:41
foodmarcekc: kde- yakuake other yeah console06:42
Seven_Six_TwoGuest3577, no, you'll be able to use gnome. it's just the default. Not a decree.06:42
Seven_Six_Twofood, I use yakuake. I LOVE it06:42
shaneomack91Seven_Six_Two I know both do. But a lot more configuration and various system operations must be done via CLI with GNOME, whereas KDE has more graphical controls06:42
MarcelCfood,  :)) =)) thank you06:42
foodseven_six_two: me too but i also like yeahconsole too06:43
Seven_Six_Twofood, I love how yakuake will open on whatever monitor my mouse is on (dual head!)06:43
MK`when you have more than one desktop environment installed, at what part of boot do you select them? before login or at the login screen?06:43
shaneomack91Seven_Six_Two An example, joystick calibration, isn't even installed by default on GNOME Ubuntu. On Kubuntu, there is a nice graphical config page in the System Settings.06:43
plouffewth uses joysticks?06:44
Seven_Six_Twoactually, I have found that there are quite a few more apps than I expected to realize I have 2 monitors and either adjust accordingly, or give me options06:44
shaneomack91Speaking of multiple monitors, that's another place where KDE works better.06:44
foodSeven_Six_two: i hate using a mouse, i prefer a keyboard only experience06:44
Seven_Six_Twoshaneomack91, then your bane is my boon. I wouldn't want that installed by default...  ;)06:44
shaneomack91That's the main reason I am using KDE, because I often hook up to the TV and with GNOME, my panel icons got messed up a lot.06:45
Seven_Six_Twofood, oh, you're on of *those*...   ;)06:45
shaneomack91Anyway, joystick calibration was just one example. I use it for playing Mario Kart 64 with a steering wheel :P06:45
foodSeven_Six_Two: mouse is slow and a keyboard is fast06:45
MarcelCubuntu 11.10 will not ship with gnome?06:45
Seven_Six_Twoshaneomack91, I have dual head and a tv, but it's good for me. nvidia though.... and I found xinerama made it bad for me06:45
Guest3577MarcelC really ????06:46
Guest3577Seven_Six_Two,  do ou use gnome too?06:46
susundbergMarcelC: no it will ship with gnome06:46
Seven_Six_Twofood, only if your brain works faster than your eyes06:46
MarcelCI am asking Guest357706:46
foodMarcel: unity is gnome06:46
Seven_Six_TwoI use gnome. yes. It's not the default setup, but it's still gnome06:46
foodMarcel: correct unity is a shell of gnome06:46
shaneomack91I'm not biased towards any specific DE, I'm just saying why I personally use KDE currently. GNOME would be better if it wasn't for a few flaws that annoy me..06:47
foodshanemack91: try liunux flame wars lol06:47
foodshanemack91: linus i mean06:47
shaneomack91food, I'm not a flame-war person :)06:47

Seven_Six_Twoshaneomack91, oh, you need to disable booting from cd, and lock the bios.06:53

shaneomack91That PC is just there for people to surf on their breaks. It's not secured or monitored, just donated..06:56
Seven_Six_Twolol. I spent a long time installing ubuntu on my dad's pc a few xmas's ago and making sure his hardware all worked. I forgot to remove the install cd, and my step brother hit enter through the whole install without reading anything. No red flags. No, "hey, this is different"06:56

Seven_Six_Twochipmenk, that's the live disc fs. so, yet06:57
shaneomack91Haha, reminds me of a post I saw on Facebook recently, a friend of mine somehow installed Windows 7 twice...06:57
Seven_Six_Twoinaety, you installed ubuntu and kubuntu of the same version?06:57
shaneomack91inaety, in a terminal run "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop"06:57
Seven_Six_Twoinaety, or did you just install kde in ubuntu06:58
zrutyHow do I know my raid device?06:58
inaetySeven_Six_Two, i simply did apt-get install kubuntu-desktop06:59
inaetyi assumed that just removing that package would....break things06:59
Seven_Six_Twoinaety, then do  sudo apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop06:59
inaetyshaneomack91, ?07:00
Seven_Six_Twoinstalling kde doesn't remove gnome07:00
shaneomack91Don't manually remove kubuntu-desktop. It'll cause hell with dependancies.07:00
shaneomack91It did for me.07:00
shaneomack91Just install ubuntu-desktop, which will automatically deselect ubuntu-desktop.07:00
Seven_Six_Twoshane4ubuntu, kubuntu-desktop is a meta-package. That's what it's supposed to do07:00
inaetyshaneomack91, why would installing ubuntu-desktop get rid of everything07:00
MK`I'm sorry if this was answered before but I missed it: when you have more than one desktop environment installed, at what part of boot do you select them? before login or at the login screen?07:00
shaneomack91MK login screen.07:00
inaetyi just want every kde application gone07:00
inaetyvanilla ubuntu07:01
Seven_Six_TwoMK`, both of your choices are the same. at login07:01
MK`Ok thank you07:01
=== Guest3577 is now known as LarsTorben
shaneomack91inaety install ubuntu-desktop, THEN remove kubuntu-desktop. I removed the kubuntu-desktop metapackage one time and screwed my system.07:01
MK`Lol I meant, before the login screen07:01
Seven_Six_Twoinaety, if you want you can (re)install ubuntu-desktop to switch any defaults, then remove all of kde apps...07:02
inaetyshaneomack91, sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop && sudo apt-get remove kubuntu-desktop07:02
shaneomack91inaety, yes, that will do.07:02
inaetyi installed gnome3 over this and it is ruining everything07:02
inaetyterminal is spitting out that removing kubuntu-desktop will only get rid of like 47kb07:03
Seven_Six_TwoI selected kubuntu-desktop to be installed, and it didn't say anything would be removed...You will be fine either way. worst case scenario, you have to install ubuntu-desktop from a prompt, and you already know how to do that.07:03
shaneomack91inaety, That's correct as it is just a meta-package.07:04
rob_pinaety: Just a suggestion... back up your important data now, in case you end up needing to reinstall!07:04
shaneomack91I just don't want you to have the same screw-up I did that's all :P07:04

inaetyim actually well rehearsed with iwconfig and wpa_cli07:05
inaetybut what should i do here with apt-get remove07:05
inaetydidn't do anything haha07:06
shaneomack91inaety just go ahead and install ubuntu-desktop, you'll probably have to remove the KDE apps individually.07:06

dotblankcodex84, what type of video recording07:50
wjd86so, i cannot edit it UNTIL someone connects to my server?07:50
codex84yea what type07:50
dotblankwjd86, It shouldn't change your apache2 conf file.. there may have been a conflict and you decided to keep the default version07:51
pehdenwjd86 i know there is a mod07:51
wjd86i think it should still be in the .conf tho07:51

^NiNjAput it in the drive and reboot, you should get a menu with several options12:59
susundbergif that is your only VGA controller then i would say you have integrated intel driver and no gpu12:59
redcan I somehow run a rsync command so that only files for past 2 days will be copied, even though there might be changed files from earlier time?13:00
susundbergoh well, gpu == graphical processing unit i guess, so if any processing is counted any integrated graphics card will be gpu ..13:00
GauravButolasusundberg: ok, thanks :)13:00
susundbergred: at least you can run 'find' with such option ..13:01
jribred: well if there's no rsync switch for such an option you could always use find and pass the result to rsync13:01

damnomeganerd: partitions14:45
meganerddamno: most of the partitions should be mounted at boot, if they are not the file you are interested in is /etc/fstab14:45
BluesKajbfri, ok, well the best thing is reformat to ext4 , and if it's an older pc then the alternate install pc might be what you need if the live cd install wouldn't finish14:46
toffcan any body help me in doing mac based auth using freeradius?14:46
meganerddamno: instead of specifying the device (eg. /dev/sdb2), have a look at /dev/disk/by-uuid, the /etc/fstab can mount based on the UUID, in case the device name changes.  This is also handy for mounting a USB or other removable device in the same place14:47
damnomeganerd: in my normal ubu installation (gui) I have to mount the drives necessary by opening them. otherwise they cant be accessed in oy\ther apps , say a torrent client14:47
toffi have done settings as per http://wiki.freeradius.org/Mac-Auth14:47
toffhey guys14:47
meganerddamno: OK, if you want them to always be mounted, then /etc/fstab is what you want to edit14:47

damnomeganerd: what should i give as the mount points?  /media/drive uuid  ?14:49
meganerddamno: whatever you want.  You are not limited to /mnt or /media14:49
meganerddamno: you have to create the mount point first, which is only a directory14:49
Scunizidamno: /media it typically where you mount things of your own.  Just create a directory name that you want there.14:50
meganerddamno: you could create a /torrents folder, then mount one of the partitions to that if you really wanted to.14:50
HyperShockbfri: they're telling you to make an alternate cd using the ubuntu alternate iso and reinstall on your comp using that, since it is text based vs gui based it will actually complete the install and you'll get past this road block you are experiencing now.14:50
bfriblueskaj: i can do this from a usb right?14:50
meganerddamno: what I do is put non standard stuff in /opt, that is just my way of organizing things.14:50

Camer0nis there anyway to view internet pages on ubuntu server14:52
HyperShockbfri: sounds like you are installing to a netbook, no problem again, on the good pc, download the alternate-cd, burn it, open it on the good pc, use the usb-creator that is there, done.14:52
icerootCamer0n: lynx, w3m14:52
damnoScunizi: meganerd:  all i want is to use my prtitions from the terminals, when they are not yet mounted. I think editing fstab is the best idea.  Thanks.14:52
meganerdCamer0n: install links214:52
bfrihypershock: right ok14:53
BluesKajthe live-cd/usb should have worked in your case , if the pc allows it, bfri14:53
bfriblueskaj:  so this alternative ubuntu is just command line ?14:53
meganerddamno: you can mount them manually by typing "sudo mount /dev/sdXN /path/to/mount", but /etc/fstab can do this automatically for you at boot.14:53
HyperShockbfri: it actually uses intelligent text based menus (using ansi)14:54

meganerdelijah: yes14:58
macoCamer0n: or "ip a" if ou want something more...compact14:58
