rcconfofc not01:15
rcconfnever did01:16
xphilosxBen64, but I need to update to 28-generic to fix my apt problems01:16
rcconfthey could pay me the cost of dvd and I would report the bug lolz01:16
bkerensarcconf: Would you be willing to do so we can have a look? https://bugs.launchpad.net01:16
xphilosxBen64, so im downloading linux-image-2.6.35-28-generic from the ubuntu repo's online, then I think ill try to dpkg -i --force-all it01:17
bkerensarcconf: Well if its a defect I'm sure we can get it addressed01:17
rwwbkerensa: I elected to switch to k3b instead of wasting my time on something that'll likely be ignored, but thanks.01:17
Ben64xphilosx: could work01:17
pfiforcconf, growisofs only creates an iso image, are you sure you have a coaster?01:17
Ben64xphilosx: but if you deleted grub stuff you'd need to fix that too01:17
Ben64pfifo: growisofs burns discs01:17
rcconfrww: I would try k3b now but I dont have more dvds dl01:18
bkerensarww: Well if you ever have further issues with an app file a report and shoot the ID to me and I can get it addressed01:18
xphilosxBen64, luckily I didn't do that01:18
xphilosxBen64, there was no recursion in the ls lookup01:18
rcconfI didnt want to waste 10€ on DVDs..01:18
Ben64xphilosx: make sure you have the initrd, kernel image, system map, etc :)01:18
pfifoBen64, i always used growisofs and then cdrecord01:18
bkerensaIm unsure why people burn anything these days anyways01:18
Ben64pfifo: back on rh9 i used growisofs only01:18
xphilosxso far so good01:20
xphilosxsweet, its giving me some images01:20
rcconfi did dmesg |grep growisofs and it says is 32 bit01:20
rcconfim using maverick 64bit01:20
rcconfis this a problem? lol.01:21
pfiforcconf, shouldn't be with multilib01:21
Ben64rcconf: have you tried burning in anything else01:21
xphilosxBen64, :) good to go01:21
HyperShockhi guys. anyone know why that with each success update of ubu 10.10 gnome, that video playback on the internet suffers more and more?01:21
[Soma]xphilosx, strange question, but are you 'straight edge'?01:21
rcconfBen64: I burned single sided dvds before01:22
rcconfonly 4 in total01:22
Ben64rcconf: i mean any other program01:22
rcconfand now i cant trty01:22
Ben64maybe you should01:22
Ben64why not01:22
xphilosx[Soma], not strange given my nick, but no, about 6 years ago in high school someone named me phil los, so on DALnet philos was already taken so I threw some "leet" x's around it01:22
xphilosx[Soma], I actually dislike the nick but its how most people know me01:23
bkerensaLaterz my laptop is overheating (damn CPU overclocking :P )01:23
pfiforcconf, did you do a simulate and write, or a write only?01:23
[Soma]That's cool. Just wondering because of the X's. Haven't seen anyone with those around their nick for... very long. :)01:23
rcconfpfifo: I just burned it........01:23
rcconfit was burning.01:23

[Soma]I recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and I don't really know my way around Linux much. I can only pick 1360x768 as highest resolution, although 1600x900 and 1920x1080 should be available (both of those work in Win). Any ideas?01:24
pfiforcconf, next time do a simulate, if its a problem with the libs or backend it will fail without destroying the disc01:24
xphilosxBen64, looks like everything is good, I satisfied my apt troubles with that image as well01:24
Ben64xphilosx: cool, gl :)01:25
xphilosxHyperShock, believe me.. unfortunately it probably crossed my mind01:25

rcconfnext time I wont use Ubuntu or other distro to burn the DL...01:28
rcconfwhy to risk01:28
sdrodgeDoes anyone know if there is a simple way to get the package manager to only upgrade a package if a newer version is available? (ie: an semi-hold) I'm asking because I've applied a patch to a package (256 colors for rxvt-unicode) and now the package manager keeps trying to replace my manually compiled version with the upstream copy of the same version.01:28
HyperShockrcconf: what is going on?01:29
pfiforcconf, i avoid basero always ;)01:29
Ben64rcconf: try k3b01:29
rcconfI had problems with k3b on this computer before01:29
[Soma]Yeah, I have spent quite some time googling it, but no success. Someone posted a thread on the ubuntuforums about a similar monitor (same model, different series), but he had an entirely different problem with it.01:29
rcconfit stopped burning.01:29
Ben64maybe you're computer is broken01:29
=== z is now known as Guest81337
pfiforcconf, nothing wrong with burning it on windows either... its made me plenty of coasters too01:30
[Soma]HyperShock, could it be my gfx chip (very mediocre Intel onboard gfx chip), or is the problem definitely my monitor?01:30
rcconfBen64: no, because I could burn in brasero01:30
Ben64[Soma]: i know a solution but it's not a happy one01:30

Ben64rcconf: dude you don't need to hit enter after every work01:30
HyperShock[Soma]: its a monitor definition,01:31
[Soma]Ben64, well I've tried previous Linux distributions but always ended up kinda missing Windows, but for the first time ever, I'm actually very happy with Linux and not at all tempted to switch back. So... seen as I'd like to stick with this, I'm happy dealing with the problem however difficult it is.01:31
rcconfBen64: the thing is that I transfered the iso to the laptop which has the dvd dl burner......01:31
HyperShockwho here knows how to change the monitor definations in Xorg using the new system?01:31
rcconfBen64: and I use Ubuntu on USB drive01:31
rcconfin there01:32
ScuniziHow do I change the defaults for Evince so the left thumbnail side bar doesn't open as default?01:32
pfifoHyperShock, its the same just the xorg.conf is now in /usr/lib/xorg.conf.d01:32
Ben64HyperShock: not me, i'd do a good ol' xorg.conf, which is the method i was hinting at to you [Soma]. what is the highest res the monitor supports? what model is it? make? dimensions?01:32
Ben64pfifo: ls: cannot access /usr/lib/xorg.conf.d: No such file or directory01:33
rcconfImgBurn in Wine should do it01:33
AkakumattAnyone here have knowledge with Razuna server with tomcat 601:33

ubottuHyperShock - It says dual montitors but the docs will help: XRandR 1.2 is the new method of running dual screens in !X.  Information/HowTo here: http://wiki.debian.org/XStrikeForce/HowToRandR1201:33
ubottuVNC is a protocol for remote desktop. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNCOverSSH describes how to use it securely.  It works best over fast connections, otherwise look at !FreeNX01:33

[Soma]I checked for xorg.conf in /etc/X11, but it appears that 10.10 doesn't generate that anymore by default. The highest res should be 1920x1080 @ 60 Hz. And it's an LG Flatron E2350V.01:33
Scunizi[Soma]: see the 2 ubottu posts above01:34
rcconfwhich VNC server do you recommend?01:34
rcconfI dont want to use gnome's01:34
Ben64[Soma]: yeah thats what i mean, ubuntu doesn't make xorg.xonf anymore by default.01:34
pfifoBen64, could have sworn it was there, let me look01:35
Ben64[Soma]: actually those links that Scunizi gave seem like a better solution that what i would have done01:35
HyperShockpfifo: i personally don't have a directory or file of that name in the /usr/lib directory01:35
[Soma]Ben64, oh so you meant it's not a "happy solution" because I'd have to create the xorg.conf from scratch? Also, will anything in the xorg.conf "override" the default settings? With other words: If I create a xorg.conf and it doesn't work, I can just fix the problem by removing the file again?01:36
ZeroAlphai have an issue with compiz sometimes resetting itself when my screensaver activates. anyone know why?01:36

rcconfI want to setup a VNC server and connect to it without loging in (GDM). Which VNC server should I use?01:56
muelliicat: generally: apt-get install vlc=VERSION. So we need to find out the version that is available in the PPA. Hence the apt-cache policy command.01:56
pfifojessicaBR, nearly every mainstream scripting language has socket bindings, if you know perl or python then your in business, lua php and tcl also01:57

quatchyou mean it might not all get deleted?02:07
[Soma]Ben64, sorry to bother you so much, but quick question: I currently have a very mediocre onboard gfx chip. If I was to add a PCIe gfx card to my computer, would I have to disable to gfx chip somehow for it to recognise my new card?02:07
pfifojessicaBR, some of those package use libcurl, gimp for instance02:07
soreauHey guys, how can I remove all but the currently running kernel easily?02:07
sinistradquatch, Not so much for data either, as long as you are running a more recent file system, like ext3 or ext4. I believe those are journaled file systems. You might not lose anything02:07
Ben64[Soma]: it'd be best to disable it if you can, usually through bios02:07

muellisoreau: funnily enough, I don't know about an existing solution to that obvious problem. If you find any, let me know. For now, you can do smth like "dpkg -l | grep linux-image" and apt-get purge the old ones.02:08

vahnipfifo ok. in rhythmbox the sound goes off as well. its not the player02:51

sauloMy wireless just stopped working and I don't know how identify the problem. KDE4 application do not connect anymore and iwconfig don't return errors. Somebody could help me to identify some error?03:44
lyte_afirocks: you can just "apt-get install ubuntu-netbook" if you want...03:44
slakcphillockjaw: you may like to try teamviewer it runs well on ubuntu03:44
lockjaw@lyte I'd do that, but I havent been able to find any configuration files03:45
lockjawteamviewer? ok, I'll give it a shot03:45
DrMaxCaboose885 : no effect. still same stupid watermark03:45
lyte_lockjaw: you could start it up, run "ps -ef" grab the command line and then run a new command with custom arguments03:45

afirockslyte_ should i download the netbook version or would the desktop one work?03:47

rwwsame underlying system03:48
Rthow i do it?03:48
afirocksthanks that all i wanted to  know :D03:48
lyte_afirocks: you can install either one over the top of the other with apt, it'll just use more space if you don't remove the useless packages03:48
gaelfxafirocks: the desktop should be ok, and you can install the netbook manager afterwards if you want03:48

pfifovahni, i dont see any specific problem in the file, best i can say is reinstall libasound2 and if that doesnt work, then reinstall all of ubuntu, since we cant locate the exact cause03:49

soreau_Neytiri_: You need to close all other running instances of package managers such as synaptic and apt-get03:51
Caboose885DrMax: that would make sense if it did! haha. If there was a way to just kill the watermark off that would be nice but since I don't have a system to test it on I can't be of much help03:51

ubottuUbuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) will be the fifteenth release of Ubuntu.  Codename announcement here: http://www.markshuttleworth.com/?p=64603:57

Caboose885even when you liveCD 10.10 it would do that watermark?03:57
soreausaulo: Are you having trouble with getting wireless to work?03:58
DrMaxI take back wireless03:58
DrMaxit doesn't work03:58
DrMaxand Unity is an abomination03:58
[Soma][TK]D-Fender: just to make sure, have you checked the alsamixer?03:58
saulosoreau: yes. I've installed now wicd package, but now I see "checking for access point association" and the connection fail.03:58
soreausaulo: What wifi chip is it?03:59
Caboose885DrMax: the "Classic" gnome is able to be switched to easily03:59
Caboose885just log out and select it for the session03:59
sauloYes. I'm was thinking was a hardware problem, but another system connect correctily :(03:59
sauloYes. Ah sorry! let me check!04:00
soreausaulo: It still could be that the wifi chip you have doesn't support the encryption type your access point has set04:00
clawsaulo run lspci in terminal04:00
clawcheck what chip it is04:00
DrMaxok, so let's wait a few weeks for the final 11.0404:01
[TK]D-Fender[Soma]: Just checked it... seeing progress....04:01
saulosoreau: ASUS EEE-PC 1005-HA. From lspci: 02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)04:01
Caboose885DrMax: Sounds good to me. No sense in rushing perfection :)04:01
Seven_Six_Twoodd...I had to bring my eth0 up and run dhclient manually just now...I just did an update too...04:01
[TK]D-Fender[Soma]: The stock GUI mixer kinda (really) sucks04:01
soreausaulo: Is it an HP laptop?04:01
sauloclaw: ASUS EEE-PC 1005-HA. From lspci: 02:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)04:01
saulosoreau: Asus EEE-PC Netbook04:01
pfifosaulo, ubuntu hates asus04:01
galamarWould this be the best place to ask vnc questions?04:02
soreausaulo: Does iwconfig show a wlan0 interface?04:02
[Soma]well, [TK]D-Fender, I don't know that much about Linux. I only came to this channel to deal with my own problem, but I recently had issues with my mic in skype, and turning up the volume in alsamixer fixed it. Good luck to you...04:02
DrMaxCaboose885 : especially that RCs and Betas aren't perfection :p04:02
Seven_Six_Twoaccording to my /etc/network/interfaces, eth0 isn't auto. Is this syntactically correct? :       auto lo eth004:03
saulosoreau, claw, pfifo: This wireless worked for 3 months for me, and yesterday stopped. And I really don't know what could be :(04:03
soreausaulo: Was it after an update/upgrade?04:03
pfifosaulo, i ws just reading info cause i just put 10.10 on the 701 im on right now04:03
saulosoreau: I really don't remember about done this :(04:04
soreausaulo: Do you have a previous kernel in the grub list when you boot that you can try?04:04
saulosoreau: Yes04:04
galamarsoreau, yes iwconfig will show wlan004:04
[TK]D-Fender[Soma]: thanks... it recording, but got some recording rate issues... I think his should have something I can tweak real soon...04:04
oscargotis there a 10.04 version of netbook ubuntu? The download page oesn't seem to have it04:05
Seven_Six_Twosaulo, do you see the interface with   ifconfig -a04:05
soreausaulo: Does iwconfig show a wlan0 interface?04:05
saulosoreau: Yes, ans iwconfig shows info about wlan0 too04:05
pfifosaulo, i followed this guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EeePC/Fixes#Ralink Card04:05
soreausaulo: Does 'sudo iwlist wlan0 scan|grep -i essid' show AP's?04:05
itiliousam i really putting my ubuntu computer at risk if i'm adding repositories from forums to get thunderbird update 3.1?04:07
Caboose885itilious: what forum?04:07
itiliousCaboose885, digitizor.com04:08
itiliousits ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa04:08
itiliousis that legit?04:08
saulosoreau: Yes, and my AP is here: ESSID:"dlink"04:08
pfifoitilious, install packages from untrusted sources can cause paroblems04:08
Caboose885itilious: https://launchpad.net/~mozillateam/+archive/thunderbird-stable04:08
Caboose885itilious: official launchpad page04:08
soreausaulo: Ok that's good at least.. what encryption type do you have set for it?04:08
saulopfifo: I don't found info for 10.10, it works for this version?04:08
Caboose885itilious: thats legit but do you want to be running unstable software? I would add the stable repository04:09
itiliousso that ppa:ubuntu-mozilla-daily/ppa prob isnt good to use then Caboose885 ?04:09
itiliousi see04:09
pfifosaulo, according to it, you can just use that 8.10 package there, but mind you i have the ath5k so im not 100% sure04:09
itiliousthanks Caboose885, but how do i know whats stable and whats testing?04:09
saulosoreau: This AP has no security, I never have patience to reset it and put one to work xD04:09
Caboose885itilious: it generally says in the repository what type it is04:10
saulopfifo: ok!04:10
Caboose885like on the launchpad page it says its the stable repository, itilious04:10
MaRk-Ioscargot: http://releases.ubuntu.com/10.04.2/   go down the page and select netbook04:11

SMG1hello, can anyone help me, "My Computer" does not open when clicked and no drives show up on the left pane of windows, but they show up in gparted and disk utility.04:11
soreausaulo: Also, is there any other AP named 'dlink' in your area?04:11
itiliousCaboose885, if i remove that ppa i added and then change it to the one you suggest, would that change the installed version?04:11
saulosoreau: Probabilly I will lost connection here, but I will back, ok?04:11
soreausaulo: ok04:12
SMGhello, can anyone help me, "My Computer" does not open when clicked and no drives show up on the left pane of windows, but they show up in gparted and disk utility.04:12

Caboose885itilious: I believe so. You already upgraded to the daily version?04:13
soreaupfifo: I think he's connected with eth0 and he's trying to connect with wifi04:13
saulosoreau, pfifo: I'm connected with my PC RJ-45 cable (eth0 lan)04:13
MaRk-Ioscargot: in that case download the desktop edition04:13
itiliousCaboose885, yes i just did and now trying to figure out how to go back lol04:13
saulosoreau: :D yes!04:13
MaRk-Ioscargot: but yes you can install several DE04:13
Caboose885itilious: you could purge the entire program...04:13
pfifosaulo, you shouldnt disconnect from that by messing with the wireless tho04:13
Caboose885itilious: but any settings and emails will go away04:13
saulosoreau, pfifo: Going do the test04:13
Caboose885itilious: make backups04:13

Caboose885itilious: to uninstall it?04:16
pfifosoreau, my blue LED has been pretty faithful04:17
itiliousCaboose885, purge/uninstall yes04:17
Ben64itilious: you never do it manually, just use apt-get to do it04:17
Caboose885itilious: use Synaptic Package Manager (System-->Admin-->Synaptic)04:17
wutzishi everyone, i was looking for a netbook that would play nice with ubuntu (11.04 no idea if unity is a gpu/cpu killer) just to watch videos on youtube and megavideo (HD possibly) i found out a dell mini 1018 with "ATOM N455 , intel gma 3150, 1 gb ram" would it play nice?04:17

wutzisBen64: proprietary driver frontend lol04:23
Ben64ubuxubu: if a drive can't be mounted you can't access information on it04:23
jeremybhehe, there's more than one floodbot04:23
SMGsoreau: yes it worked right before i installed empathy 3.0, which had to recompile dozen of apps just to install it, that might be the problem, but i uninstalled it and did not fix it04:23
Ben64wutzis: doesn't realtek have open source drivers?04:23
rushone2009so many bots04:23
ubottuHere I am, brain the size of a planet and they ask me to respond to factoid requests. Call that job satisfaction? Because I don't.04:23
soreauBen64: jockey is the gui for installing proprietary drivers in ubuntu ie. sys>prefs>additional drivers04:23
Ashkinmilligan: the aetheros card shows up in lspci, but nothing else.  i've fought with getting drivers to work for it for months.. just gave up and used wired.04:23
ubuxubu10-4 Ben64 but why would it say that when it has been working fine?04:23

soreauSMG: How did you install this empathy 3.0?04:23
wutzisBen64: im not too sure04:24

Ashkinthis client makes things -really- hard to follow. ugh.  i should just use colloquy on my phone :/04:24
soreauAshkin: Do you want to try to get it working?04:24
ubuxubuwhy would a computer that works fine suddenly say it failed to mount drive?04:24

jeremybubuxubu: dmesg | tail -n 30004:25
MaRk-Isly: for natty support #ubuntu+104:25
soreauSMG: Sounds like you overwrote a bunch of packages you shouldn't have. Typically you should install something like that to a nonstandard prefix but sounds like it's too late for that04:25
soreauSMG: So, you can try and reinstall all packages you installed from source and see if that fixes it or reinstall ubuntu04:26
ubuxubuBen64: it sill up the whole screen04:26
soreauSMG: Reinstall packages, with your package manager04:26
Ben64ubuxubu: use pastebin04:26
soreauAshkin: Is it an HP laptop by chance?04:26
wutzisBen64: well lets try and do some math, ill need your help here because i suck at this , if windows 7 starter works i  think ubuntu with unity (remember i have no idea of how much cpu it eats) should work at least fine right?04:26
ubuxubucant working remote04:26
SMGsoreau: yes that might be it, can i reinstall ubuntu without deleting what is on harddrive (overwrite everything)04:27
Ashkinsoreau: iie, it's a toshiba satellite04:27
Ben64wutzis: if it works on windows chances are it will in ubuntu04:27
soreauAshkin: Alright, does 'iwconfig' show a wlan0 interface?04:27

Ashkinthe card is an Atheros AR500104:29
Ashkin^ @ soreau04:29
jeremybit's unlikely to be nonsense04:30
Ben64wutzis: i think the backlight for the screen has Hg (mercury) in it04:30
ubuxubuBen64: some driver that mounts the drive at boot must of got broken somehow04:30
jeremybeven if you think it is04:30
wutzisBen64: oh great04:30
ubuxubuBen64: oh well ran great for a week04:30

jeremybubuxubu: open a shell or terminal. type "dmesg | tail -n 300" (no quotes). pastebin the output04:30
Ben64wutzis: don't worry, just don't eat it, or toss in trash, recycle!04:30

oscargotpfifo, lawl...04:32
q0_0pubuxubu,  have you tried the mount command04:32
ubuxubucos my buddy is off the phone04:32
soreauAshkin: Alright so it's not loading the module by default. To fix that, put 'ath5k' on a line by itself without tick marks in /etc/modules04:32
soreauAshkin: Check it's working and such after reboot04:33
ubuxubuits not my laptop04:33
ubuxububut ill have it here tomorrow04:33
Ashkinsoreau: actually, i think updating to 10.10 did it;  this is farther than i've gotten with hours of tedious fighting before04:33
pfifooscargot, contact you local EPA office and ask them where to dispose of it if it need special disposal, but in general, only the battery is hazardous04:33
bluethundr_hello I am on an ubuntu 8.04 laptop and I have full connectivity to the net, however for some reason this machine cannot update / install packages using apt04:35
Ashkinsoreau: actually, i think updating to 10.10 did it;  this is farther than i've gotten with hours of tedious fighting with drivers before04:35

AshkinYesterday, my Vista install died.  worked fine, then suddenly, HD access slowed to a crawl (on the order of up to 30 seconds per file) ; booting into Vista took 17 minutes.  however, this ubuntu install on the same hd works fine. now vista bluescreens on boot.  long story short, i need to repair the install (or do a scandisk on its partition) but i can't get into the os, and the recovery cd cannot find the install either.04:55
ubottuYum! Err, I mean, APT!04:56
abhinav-MaRk-I: thanks. its restored now :)04:56

ubottuStrav: 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.04:57
rwwStrav: #ubuntu+1 for natty discussion; #ubuntu is for released versions of Ubuntu04:57
Stravxangua: thanks, I'm on my way.04:57
pfifoAshkin, I have heard alot of complaints about ubuntu destroying the ability to use a rescuecd/system restore04:57
Ashkinso um.  how do i manage to do a scandisk (or similar) on my (likely ntfs) vista partition?  friend recommended fsck, but he was plastered, so :/04:58
Ashkinpfito: yes.  the recovery cd can't find the vista install (thinking its because of grub)04:58
saulosoreau, pfifo: to be honest, I don't know really, but was'nt at wireless exactily, something was wrong about the routes and DNS. Wasn't applying. When I saw your command output, I saw the wireless connection was working, but nothing anymore. But "magically" all is working now, I restarted the PC and no more problems :-S04:59
soreauAshkin: You have to use windows utilities to check ntfs disks AFIAK04:59
soreausaulo: Hey, cool04:59
HyperShockaskin: the command in linux you are looking for is called 'ntfsfix'04:59
elb0w_Anyone get the issue where you just get a black screen with a crosshair mouse in ubuntu 11.04?04:59
pfifoAshkin, my 1 and only response to anything windows related is format and reinstall, most people can manage to find a windows 7 cd somewhere04:59
Ashkinsoreau: i can't get into windows.  the only thing i can think of is reinstalling it, and I dont' want to do that.04:59
xanguaelb0w_: #ubuntu+105:00

elb0w_yea i asked there no one replied05:00

Ashkinbob__: no, this is for an ntfs partition05:01

Ashkinsoreau:  thank you <305:01
soreausaulo: No problem05:01
pfifosaulo, glad you got it working05:01
HyperShockAshkin: from linux side just do 'sudo ntfsfix /dev/<device>[partition#]'05:01
Ashkinhave a cookie, some strawberries, etc :P05:02
saulosoreau: You told about ntfs here. Then a question: what's the status of ntfsfix utility, what it can do for us?05:02
HyperShockif you don't know what partition it is, you can also do 'sudo fdisk -l | less' to see a list of partitions and their device names05:02
soreausaulo: I have no idea05:02
saulosoreau: lol, I found the answer :-S   http://linux.die.net/man/8/ntfsfix05:03
pfifodoes ubuntu have an official stance on deleting hidden recovery partitions or destroying rescue systems? asidde from the header of GNU GPL?05:04
sauloHyperShocK, Ashkin: Anyway, I think it's good take a look here about ntfsfix: http://linux.die.net/man/8/ntfsfix05:05
soreausaulo: FWIW, you can do 'man ntfsfix' or any other program, most have man pages05:05

pfifohrezaei1, it stores the packages in /var/cache/apt/archives/ you could copy them to another machine of the same ubuntu version to save download time05:40
hrezaei1pfifo: is it enough to just copynig them ?05:41
pfifoetienne, if i was in you shoes, i would make the server the gateway for both subnets, give NAT to both of them to the inter net, and als NAT them to eachother05:42

hrezaei1pfifo: I think it is for teminal. in terminal using sudo I can change permissions,copy files,rename,etc. but in desktop (gnome) I can not.05:50
hrezaei1pfifo: Is there anyway to give gnome the root access?05:51
pfifohrezaei1, normally anything you do as root needs to be done on the command line, root dosent usually want a GUI05:51
pfifo!root | hrezaei105:52
ubottuhrezaei1: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo05:52

seravitaehi there. i'm trying to find a file on my ubuntu 10.10 box. i know the file must exist as a program is failing on a particular line of the file, yet, i cannot find it in GUI search, or using 'locate'.05:52
seravitaeany ideas how i might more rigourously try to locate the file?05:52

sam_I have ubuntu 10.10 I am trying to get my old intel extreme 82845g card to run 3d etc...Can anyone help05:52
shazzner_or I guess I should say, when I'm playing a game mouse events go on in the background05:53
shazzner_anyway to stop that?05:53
Simathseravitae: did you make sure to update the db for locate?05:53
pfifohrezaei1, you can sudo passwd and set a password for the root account, then login to gnome as root, but ubuntu generally dose not like that05:53
=== amir_ is now known as Guest26849
pfifohrezaei1, but thats honestly the first thing i do after i install05:54
MaRk-Isam_: have you tried System> Preferences > Appearance  enable effects?05:54
shazzner_actually I could probably figure it out on my own if I knew where the joystick was being configured05:54

sam_Yes, it says something along the lines of 'can't enable effects'05:54
hrezaei1I dont like every time I want to chmod a file or folder,going to terminal,cd to there and run it. just right click and...05:54
hrezaei1ok, how to login gnome as root?05:54
etiennepfifo: when you you route... is that persistent?05:54
shazzner_but I have no idea where that is in maverick05:55
etienneor should I write the route somewhere ?05:55
pfifoetienne, ehh, well i write my own initscript to setup iptables, not really sure in your case05:55
seravitaeSimath - nope, ill try that05:55
sam_I have found this web site but am not sure what I need to download http://intellinuxgraphics.org/05:56
MK``When I try to install samba it says "The action would require the installation of packages from not authenticated sources.", yet it's from the software center05:56
seravitaeSimath - updatedb && locate hal_evergreen.c && locate * | grep hal_evergreen all return nothing05:56
hiexposam_, why you need driver?05:57
pfifohrezaei1, on the command line type `sudo -l` then `passwd` it will prompt you to enter a password twice, then log out of gnome as a normal uswe and relog in as "root" using the password you set05:57
sam_I have installed ubuntu 10.10, but i dont have 3d functions05:57
MaRk-Isam_: first you need to know which video card you have, and the problem on why compiz is not running05:57

buzzomatic_But for some reason whenever I try and connect between these machines, using any protocol, the speed is terrible06:02
pfifoKINGOFSWORDS, i reccommend first installing windows, then ubuntu, windows install ashould handle formatting ntfs for you, and ubuntu will install grub to dual boot automatically06:02
sam_hiexpo, does that mean ubuntu does not support my graphics controller?06:02

KINGOFSWORDShow much space should i partition in gparted for windows 7? i want14gb for gta 406:10
hiexpoIanWizard-Mobile, try adding the mediabuntu repos  > probally missing codecs06:11
pfifoKINGOFSWORDS, windows 7 wants 16gb and if your game needs 14gb then 30gb asll together, maybe a bit more for drivers and such06:12
lwizardlbullgard4,  ok then that program does not answer the question. since that is a player & not a subscription type service06:12
lwizardlI keep finding stuff like gpodder and juice but none of them seem to find many feeds/shows/etc06:12
KINGOFSWORDSgame is on ubuntu hdd already can i install it from that?06:12
pfifoKINGOFSWORDS, you can get ext2 file system drives for windows 7 and access you entire linux partiton, install games there and everything06:13
KINGOFSWORDSoh so i only need to partition 16gb for the windows install then?06:14

pfifohrezaei1, if there isnt a package for the driver in your cache, you can always get the drive directly from ati website, installing it properly is a diferent story, alot of poeple have trouble getting it to work even installing it with the ubuntu package07:03

fisixhrezaei1, now featuring terrorists ^^07:05
fisixspel3o, lol what exactly is going wrong :S?07:05
pfifohrezaei1, it would be something like xorg-server-ati.deb or similiar07:06
spel3ofisix, haha, I'm trying to find out.. I need to find out where the logs are, and maybe uncomment some log options in the ircd conf file07:07
hrezaei1pfifo: no ati, no amd,no xorg liked pks is there!07:07
spel3oBut it was working PERFECTLY before, I did a restart without changing anything, and now the daemon won't start. So it had to be something that was modified on startup07:07
pfifohrezaei1, its not that big of a deal if its missing, the point of copying these files are to save time downloading on another machine, they have a shelf life and should not be kept around for more than a few weeks07:08

tor_Some programs soesn't work in Linux..08:26
Starminn!virtualbox | tor_08:26
ubottutor_: virtualbox is a x86 !virtualizer. A !free edition is available from the package 'virtualbox-ose'. A non-free edition is available at http://virtualbox.org for most Ubuntu releases (help in #vbox) - Setup details at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VirtualBox08:26

tor_Ok, thanks..08:26
mkquistPip: of course08:26
tor_Yess, have tried in Wine..08:26
Piptor_, You tried Windows 7 with wine ?08:27
Starminntor_: Then yes, a virtual machine is the way to go. I have an XP virtual machine on my system, personally.08:27
mkquistPip: it might give you a hint08:27
StarminnPip: Doesn't work that way. Stop spouting rabble.08:27
PipStarminn, What doesn't work ?08:27
tor_Windows 7 in Wine?08:28

amybunnyanyone know a partition tool for winxp that I can run in winxp with full functionality for deleting partitions?08:32
Pipamybunny, Partition Magic08:32
KM0201Pip, thats not for Windows is it?08:32
PipIt IS08:32
PipWith Partition Magic, you can divide your C:\ into parts on the fly08:33
greppyamybunny: what are you trying to do?08:33
KM0201amybunny, google "Easus Partition Master"... it's a good windows tool08:34
Pipamybunny, You are on ubuntu, why can do anything on linux08:34
amybunnypartition magic demo tool would let me delete the partitions but not commit the changes08:34
Pipamybunny, Why did you use demo ?08:34
Pipamybunny, wait, what exactly do you want to do ?08:34
PipI said you can get anything done on Linux08:34
bounderlast attempt08:35
greppyamybunny: are you trying to delete a linux partition in windows?08:35
Pipgreppy, Oh, no :S08:35
amybunnypip: the system has 2 linux partitions on it currently. The Ubuntu installation disc's partition tool does not allow you to delete the partition and then install alongside an existing OS.08:35
PipI would assume she wants to extend linux world08:35
DirtyDawggparted is good too08:35
KM0201amybunny, sure it does, i do it all the time08:35
greppyPip: by assuming instead of asking what people are trying to accomplish, you'll end up making mistakes :)08:36
amybunnyok, lets give it a try, and I'll ask when it starts borking08:36
Pipamybunny, You can't delete a partition that is mounted08:36
PipI mean being mounted08:37
KM0201amybunny, get to the partition stage.. and i'll tell you how to do it... make sure all your partitions are unmounted, etc08:37
amybunnythis is straight off the installation disc, so it shouldn't be mounted?08:37
KM0201amybunny, ok.. as long as they aren't mounted08:38
Pipamybunny, there is a tool for linux which is almost as powerful as PM08:38
amybunnyim a bit more familiar with fdisk/cfdisk08:38
Pipamybunny, GParted is totally "what you see is what you will get"08:38
amybunnyah, that's the one with the moveable bar for partition size, right?08:39
amybunnyincluded with the Ubuntu installation disc08:39
quuxmanIs there a new system for starting and stopping services, that replaces sysvinit I think?08:39
KM0201pretty much, but if you want to delete an old ubuntu install, and install a new one, then you don't want to use the "auto" partition tool08:39
amybunnypsay yeah, that's what I need to do. delete an old/mistaken ubuntu install08:40
amybunnyi was a bit tired when doing the first installation and grabbed the desktop disc instead of the netbook disc.08:40
KM0201amybunny, ok.. thats really not difficult at all.08:40
gaelfxhm, I thought the partitioner in the install was gparted?08:40
Tyrnisplop all08:41
amybunnywithout deleting the whole drive (because of the windows OS that is installed that I want to keep installed alongside it)08:41
amybunnyIm helping my cousin get acquainted with linux, I thought Ubuntu would be a good first distro for him08:41
KM0201amybunny, right.. it really should be a piece of cake08:41
KM0201are you on the live cd now?08:41
amybunnythe install disk is booting up now, It should be pretty easy.08:42
Zpixhi all08:42
amybunnyhey zpix08:42
ZpixI compiled 2.6.38 kernel on ubuntu 10.10 but with this kernel i can't boot08:42
sburwood1I have a problem with /home/¬/ICEauthority.  Someone told me to get a recovery console during boot to do chown user.user /home/user/ICEauthority.  How do I get a recovery console?  My system doesn't give me a choice of kernels, recovery, etc08:42

VIC-20Hello, I am trying to make a grub boot floppy with my current grub configuration and the instructions on the grub how-to are failing me08:42
quuxmanI installed mysql-server, and apt asked me to type "Yes, do as I say!" which I knew was a bad idea, but I did it anyway08:43
quuxmansurprise, now my system doesn't boot08:43
amybunnyok, so try or install08:43
quuxmanI remember it installing a package that conflicted with sysvinit, or something08:43
amybunnyi'll choose install, right?08:43
quuxmanbut I can't remember what it was called08:43
Pipamybunny, Install what ?08:43
quuxmannow that I'm chrooted in to the system, I can't figure out what to uninstall08:43
amybunnyUbuntu, from the booted Ubuntu disc I have in,08:43
KM0201amybunny, yes, choose install, answer the mickey mouse questions till you get to the partition stage, then lemme know when you're there08:44
Pipamybunny, You are on Live CD or something ?08:44
ZpixI compiled 2.6.38 kernel on ubuntu 10.10 but with this kernel i can't boot, any idea?08:44
icerootZpix: what about usefull infos?08:44
PipZpix, what do you mean by "can't boot" ?08:44
amybunnyI wonder if I can get my cousin using vim too :D08:44
KM0201amybunny, lol.. let him crawl before he starts training for a marathon08:45
ZpixPip: when I wanna boot with this kernel after 4 sec the computer will be shut down08:45
amybunnyOpenOffice -> or ...emacs?08:45
PipZpix, How did you compile the kernel ?08:45
KM0201Libre Office.. :)08:45
quuxmanAh yes! it was called upstart08:45
quuxmanupstart totally screwed my system08:46
aliveriusi mistakenly erased one partition of my raid 108:46

FloodBot2aliverius: Please don't flood; use http://paste.ubuntu.com to paste; don't use Enter as punctuation.08:46
amybunnyok, so install alongside other OSes or specify partitions manually?08:46
KM0201amybunny, manually08:46
amybunnythen just highlight and delete the offending partitions?08:47
KM0201amybunny, well, what are your current partitions08:47
ChronicSyncopemy phone wont charge08:47

ChronicSyncopethey're probably a bunch of macholes08:47

ChronicSyncopelet me rephrase that then08:48

ChronicSyncopemy iphone wont charge IN UBUNTU08:48
dmancan anyone tell me where the channel on MUTE is08:48
KM0201well thats interesting.. and there wer no other partitions, just those 3?08:48
greppyChronicSyncope: does it charge if you boot another OS on the same PC?08:48
ZpixPip: oh! :D I found this from net08:48
PipZpix, You need to configure it before compilation really starts08:48
ChronicSyncopebut in ubuntu08:48
ChronicSyncopeit gives me the yellow triangle08:48
WaltherFIChronicSyncope: try unmounting it but keeping it in08:48
amybunnyyup, all were listed under /dev/sda08:49
ZpixPip: how?08:49
ChronicSyncopeWaltherFI,  good idea!08:49
ChronicSyncopei bet that will work08:49
WaltherFIChronicSyncope: that's what i do with my kindle 3g08:49
KM0201amybunny, ok.. how big is your swap08:49
PipZpix, Since you know almost nothing about this dirty job, why bother ?08:49
WaltherFIChronicSyncope: right click, eject08:49
ChronicSyncopeyeah it was working until i installed the iphone utils...08:49
amybunnyso, I'll select 'delete' for the two linux partitions and start fresh with 'free space'?08:49
ChronicSyncopeWaltherFI, thanks i can eject my devices xD08:49
PipZpix, Don't do it, just go with the stock kernel08:49
amybunnyabout 1.5Gb08:49
KM0201amybunny, if the swap space is an acceptable size, you really dn't hav to delete that08:49
KM0201amybunny, how much physical ram on that system?08:49
ZpixPip: hmmmmmmm so I can find DEB files for this08:49
WaltherFIChronicSyncope: just to make sure - better to be too helpful than not enough08:49
PipZpix, It will take a week to tell you how to compile a kernel correctly08:49
ChronicSyncopeWaltherFI, i just hadn't thought about that solution, but since it started happening after i tried installing some iphone utils08:50
ChronicSyncopethat will probably fix it08:50
ZpixPip: =))08:50
ZpixPip: so I prefer to go and search about it to know08:50
amybunnyok, after deleting the main partition,  "add" it from free space?08:50
PipZpix, Let me give you a hint if you are really addicted into this08:51
ZpixPip: :*08:51
PipZpix, there is a book called <Linux Kernel in Nutshell>08:51
KM0201amy.. this i what you want... "Primary"   "Beginning"  (max out the size), "ext4 journalizing filesystem"  and then mount point is "   /   "  and thats it.08:51
ZpixPip: oh good08:51
amybunnyKM0201, logical/38323mb/beginning/ext4//08:51
KM0201amybunny, see above.08:51
* amybunny nods08:51
KM0201ok.. logical works fine to.08:51
PipDon't be scared, it's a small book, easy to read Zpix08:51
KM0201now, click OK, and that should take you back to the main screen08:52
* KM0201 never uses logical partitions08:52
KM0201amybunny, back at the main screen after you've saved chose changes, click the "Format" button, and then click Install, and continue w/ the process08:52
ZpixPip: sorry say again08:53
PipZpix, The book is very think08:53
ZpixPip: please say the name again :P08:53

Starminnmah454: Yeah, you'll need 11.04 for install. the Gnome3 for 10.10 is one of the early builds09:19
mah454Ok ... tnx :)09:20
Starminnmah454: Your best bet to experiencing Gnome3 currently is through an OpenSUSE for Fedora 15 alpha LiveCD09:20

amybunnyrather than having a sidebar along the left side of the window, everytime i scroll over it, the screen flickers.10:27
YankDownUndermorgan, something you might try is installing gparted, and seeing if there's an issue (error) on the drive - which is generally easily enough repaired with gparted10:27

morganyankdownunder - that report was from gparted - don't remember ever having trouble, prob NTFS formatted. Comes up as file system unallocated so I guess gparted isn't seeing it right and theres no error to fix. Would an incorrect unmount cause this prob?10:28
YankDownUndermorgan, Right click the drive/partition, "Check for Errors" => see if that fixes ya up.10:29
morganyankdownunder - greyed out10:29
Dr_Willisif its saying unallocated - then its not seeing any FS there to check..10:30
YankDownUndermorgan, You might have to choose "Unmount", then try again...??10:30
Dr_Williswhat FS was supposed tobe on the HD?10:30
sebrockanyone is there a ubuntu ppa channel?10:30
amybunnydo i need to update my video drivers, or something?10:31
YankDownUnderSometimes, with some SATA drives, if the disk label is toasted, the FS/partitions might appear unview-able...however, there are ways of fixing that issue. Mostly, this occurs with MS "Dynamic Disks" - disks/partitions created with XP and above10:31

Dr_Willisoldtimer:  otherwise you ar going to be doing a lot of tweaking byhand to get a working desktop10:36

oldtimerbut anyways thanks for all the suport ubuntu channel10:41
HRTwhen it asks for dual boot, I select Kubuntu, then screen goes black as the Kubuntu logo will appear, but it doesn't and the black screen freezes, my card is ATI HD540010:41
morganyankdownunder - the drive is a 1.5tb WD green from an external enclosure. Works fine in THAT enclosure, but not at all outside it. Is that normal??10:42
Dr_WillisHRT:  i dont use ati. could be some known issue  with the ati drivers. You could try booting to recovery/rescue mode and going back to the original drivers.10:43
HRTDr_Willis, then what to do after I recover my original drivers?10:44
YankDownUndermorgan, I've actually had this issue before - what I ended up doing was to get an update for the BIOS of the machine that the drive was put into - apparently, the drive - WHEN it was in the machine, was only reporting 32gb - ergo, BIOS update - then everything worked like a champ after that...and as well, the drive was a slave...so no issues since...(and it's in a server)10:44
Dr_WillisHRT:  use them and not the FGLRX drivers from ati.10:44
Dr_Willismorgan:  from what ive read a 'green' WD hd. is often just a slower RPM hd.. ive not heard anythign special about their enclosuers.10:45
HRTDr_Willis, i didn't get you10:45
Dr_Willismorgan:  it could be its power needs are differnt i guess.10:45
oldtimerYankDownUnder,  well not sddram1 which was win98 to win2000 and looks like came form a school ,10:45
Dr_WillisHRT:  dont run/use the drivers from the  addational drivers tool.10:45
Dr_WillisHRT:  ati is often problematic. If the default drivers work - use them10:45
morganyankdownunder - hmmm. The motherboard is brand new (but not necessarily latest bios granted) - but the disk size is correctly reported in gparted. Got me a bit thrown..10:46
HRTDr_Willis, then I should google for the drivers?10:46
Dr_WillisHRT:  use the DEFAULT drivers thta came with ubuntu - if they worked..10:46
HRTDr_Willis, they don't work10:46
YankDownUnderDr_Willis, morgan Those drives - WHEN they're in an external enclosure, do not depends on the BIOS of the machine to be read/recognised - however, when you put them INTO the box, the BIOS requires information from the CMOS on the PCB of the drive - the WD green drives have strange CMOS/BIOS on their PCB's - and if you don't have a current BIOS, you can't read the drive properly.10:46
Dr_WillisHRT:  you said it worked fine originally...10:46
HRTDr_Willis, they caused the damage occured10:47
morgancheers yankdownunder - appreciate the help, i'll look into it.10:47
YankDownUndermorgan, What you could do is to back up the drive, then, under linux (or with the liveCD), delete, recreate the partition, format it as you wish - then try again...I gave you the resolution I had to resort to - but hey, I've read many more different resolutions for this issue.10:47
Dr_WillisHRT:  that made no sence...10:47
Dr_WillisYankDownUnder:  good to know then. :)10:48
YankDownUnderDr_Willis, Yeah mate - especially if you're making money off the venture... :)10:48
Dr_WillisYankDownUnder:  i thought the whole 'green hd' thing was a gimmic really. Just marketing a slower RPM hd as being better.. :)10:49
YankDownUnderDr_Willis, It *is* a gimic...nothing more...10:49
Dr_WillisYankDownUnder:  a gimmic that requires new HW  to work normally even.. I will pass on them I think.10:49
HRTDr_Willis, here, I installed the system, then I went to hardware drivers, it prompted "searching for available drivers" it found it, I activated it, then asked to reboot, then nothing happened, just the black screen10:50
Dr_WillisHRT:  that installed the FGLRX drivers. which seem tobe the issue.10:50
YankDownUnderDr_Willis, When I deal with builds, I make sure it's stuff that's tried and true and tested, and that I'm not going to see for a very long time....VERY long time (fix it once - that's my motto)10:50
HRTthen what to do?10:50
Dr_WillisHRT:  you could try rescue/recovery mode and deactivate the drivers10:51
Dr_WillisIm not sure of the proper way to de-activate the ati drivers. For my Nvidia systems. I canjust rename the xorg.conf to be xorg.conf.BROKEN  :) or similer10:52
YankDownUnderHRT, You could always try getting to the console (ALT-F1) logon, then try: sudo dpkg --reconfigure xorg-server => choose a different driver for the card, reboot.10:53

mha_how can I remove the too many kernels?11:27
Dr_Willismha_:  uninstall the older kernels you dont need via the package manager tools. or ubuntu-tweak or.. Hmm not sure how else..11:27
YankDownUndermha_, Best way is to use the Synaptic Package Manager => look for "linux-image" -> choose the kernels that you don't want, click apply, s'all she wrote!11:27
Dr_Willisbe sure to leave the current kernel.. and i suggest at least 1 older kenel just in case.11:28
mha_YankDownUnder: a lot of "linux-image " packages! which one to remove?11:28
Dr_Willismha_:  it may be best if you just left them alone..11:28
YankDownUndermha_, The one's yer not using (you can check by opening a terminal, type: uname -a)11:28
Starminnmha_: Ubuntu Software Center and search "linux-header" just leave the current and you'll be fine11:28
YankDownUnderDepends - some folks use a single partition for the /boot => ergo, it gets kinda full up with cruft...(old kernel images)11:29
Dr_WillisI set my /boot/ to be 2gb :)11:30

rooksanirudhr, read my question again please12:48
nrabetthello, I am having horrible problems with my three year old Lenovo laptop. It started yesterday, with light screen flicker. Soon, it became worse - the screen gradually turned white and black again. An attempt to reinstall ubuntu was successful, but it did nothing against the flickering. Today, the machine is not usable because of screen flicker, and it refuses to boot from a Windows DVD. How can I find out if this is a driver issue, or a 12:48
anirudhryoghurt: Depends on your BIOS version. Get into your BIOS menu and check if you see your hard disk being detected.12:48
anirudhrnrabett: Your LCD is dead.12:48
anirudhrrooks: Yes. Try the command.12:49
yoghurtyes it is detected by my bios12:49
anirudhryoghurt: Are you able to reach GRUB? Is it GRUB 1 xor 2?12:49
rooksanirudhr, you know it shows list of all installed packages, why do you think it shows all package installs issued by me?12:49
yoghurti think grub 2 because i have the latest version of ubuntu and i can't reach grub in any way12:50
anirudhrrooks: You should grep through your .bash_history, then. I don't see any other way of determining your apt-get install history12:50
CodeGnome2yoghurt: Yeah...they hosed the default settings for grub...there's no timeout for it, it just boots.12:50
CodeGnome2Someone should file a bug about the grub settings.,12:51

rooksanirudhr, well.. if you dont know you shouldnt contribute to the noise you know... my history is short, i did try it myself12:52

yoghurti dont have a optical device i can only use flash drive12:53

Romeo_ Hi guys have a quick question regarding linux/ubuntu, is it true that your isp cant be tracked? what im asking is can my isp see what im doing? i dont have nothing to hide but i dont like the idea of being tracked, i know they can track you with windows but someone told me that you cant get tracked on linux not sure if its true12:55
ikonianeolive: we donp't do router support here12:55
ikoniaRomeo_: that's nothing to do with linux - talk to your isp12:55
neoliveikonia: where to?12:55
BlouBlouRomeo_: You can block ICMP packages and Pings, so your PC will be invisible12:56
yoghurtbut how do i repair grub?12:56
ikonianeolive: don't know12:56
ikoniaBlouBlou: that's nonsense12:56
CodeGnome2Romeo_: Your ISP can always see your IP traffic, unless it's encrypted. That's the nature of IP routing.12:56
anirudhrrooks: I tried helping as best as I could. This being a free service, I believe that it does not entitle you to insult me when I try to help you. If you want better help, go search the web, there is this company called Google that will help you there.12:56
ikoniaRomeo_: talk to your ISP, it's not an ubuntu or a Linux question12:56

BlouBlouikonia: I mean invisible under atacks with no 'defined IP', if someone tries to check if my PC is connected or not, they won't know. Meh, I read something like that, sorry if I am wrong12:57
ikoniaBlouBlou: you are wrong12:57
anirudhryoghurt: I forgot how to, but you should get into a grub shell while you are booting up and then have grub find your boot partition. You should be able to find an online tutorial there.12:57
Romeo_just dont like the idea of my isp seeing what im doing thats privacy12:58
ikoniaRomeo_: then talk to THEM12:58
BlouBlouRomeo_: Then use Tor12:58
Romeo_not that i can do much but thats not the point12:58
ikoniaRomeo_: then why are you moaning about it in here12:59
BlouBlouRomeo_: Read this -> https://www.torproject.org/12:59
=== mwg is now known as kopfkrank
Romeo_whos moaning??? im asking a question12:59
greppyRomeo_: check the privacy policy of your ISP, as someone that works for an ISP, I know that I have far better things to do than to look at a random persons network traffic.12:59
ikoniaRomeo_: you're asking questions about YOUR ISP - this is an ubuntu support channel12:59
yoghurtok thank you12:59
Romeo_im asking BECAUSE someone told me you cant track isp on ubuntu,ive never heard that before so i was enquiring since i use ubuntu13:00
ikoniaRomeo_: they can track your ISP on ANY OS13:00
greppyRomeo_: they were mistaken.13:01

ikoniaBlouBlou: ubuntu-uec-live is not a "task"13:04
zetsubooousooo, is there a channel for asking for tweaking tips and stuff? so I wouldn't have to ask tiny pointless questions here?13:04
erUSULsaimanoj: no; that wont happen13:04
BlouBlouikonia: mmh?13:04
CodeGnome2saimanoj: Probably not...by default send-keys won't do that. But if you're worried about it, fetch the key from the server to check it manually.13:05
Dr_Williszetsubooou:  as long as its ubuntu related. here is fine.13:05
ikoniasorry, that was for bullgard413:05
BlouBlouoh, okay13:05
erUSULsaimanoj: gpg knows the correspondng public key and sends that13:05

Dr_Willismidhuno:  i would check the forums for similer problems people have had.13:29
Dr_Willismidhuno:  and pop in a data disk and see if you can mount it by hand13:30
Dr_WillisQuiSE:  i rarely have to mess with wifi drivers these days13:30
midhuno<Dr_Willis> i dont understand...13:31
QuiSEDr_Willis: I found this last night: http://nanonanonano.net/linux/debian/iwlwifi13:31
sor4youhello is this really ubuntu?13:31
QuiSEDr_Willis: but there is things I cant grasp in that guide13:31
mahound_i have maverick with the latest updates installed, and an intel gigabit 82577LM ethernet controller. if i ifconfig, there is no eth0 device, nothing. no errors in dmesg, nothing.13:32
phoenixsampraswhen the next release of Ubuntu will be ready??13:32
mahound_any suggestion?13:32
sor4youHello room I dont know if anyone is bored enough to talk to me I am interested in learning linux13:32
CodeGnome2mahound_: Did you check to see if you need any special firmware for that device?13:32
tawanmahound_: it is listed as about the 25th i think13:33
sor4youI know everyone is busy13:33
sor4youbut any help you can offer me will be greatly appreciated13:33
ex0ahow can i set the default (preferred) resolution for a specific display with the fglrx driver? it seems that xrandr causes the catalyst software to confuse settings13:33
mahound_tawan, sorry? i don't get it13:33
ex0aand i'm unable to remove unwanted modes13:33
mahound_CodeGnome2, i googled it, but found nothing13:33
amybunnysor4you, I think it's worth giving a try. You can opt to start with a small dual-boot, and then convert to pure linux later if you like.13:34
phoenixsampraswhen the next release of Ubuntu will be ready?? !!!13:34
FishFacephoenixsampras: I think on the 28th of this month13:34
sor4youso i have done that with the ubuntu remix and i want the real thing13:34
sor4youi have a netbook right now13:34
sor4youbut will have a laptop soon13:34
sor4youso as far as the fullblown ubuntu i should just download the desktop version for my laptop right13:35
tawanmahound_: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NattyReleaseSchedule13:35

QuiSEIm looking for some assistens in update my WIFI-DRIVERS. (got the drivers and a guide already)13:35
sor4youthat way i can do stuff like compiz fusion and all those cool features13:35
mahound_tawan, i think you are confusing me with someone else :)13:35
CodeGnome2sor4you: The netbook and desktop editions are the same now.13:36
sor4youok well here is my question if you dont mind amybunny13:36
mahound_CodeGnome2, ok, thanks anyway13:36
tawanphoenixsampras: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/NattyReleaseSchedule13:36
tawanye sorry mahound_13:36
sor4youi want to run compiz fusion and ubuntu and the latest linux what kind of specs should i have13:36
phoenixsamprasWill all Bugs involded Hibernation and Suspend, will be fixed??13:36
amybunnyIm not sure if it's actually possible to run the 'desktop' release on a netbook.  If you already have the netbook release installed, that should be perfectly fine. As for Compiz fusion, I know nothing about that application.13:37
sor4youoh ok13:37
sor4youwell the netbook edition looks nothing like what i have seen on youtube videos13:38
sor4youinstances of ubuntu running at incredible speeds13:38
sor4youonce again there is no laptop/notebook version of ubuntu?13:39
CodeGnome2sor4you: I think 10.10 has a netbook edition. 11.04 won't.13:39
midhunoanother problem in my smplayer xv video output is not working so i have 2 use x11(slow)output.....y?13:39
sor4youso what ubuntu do i install on my new laptop13:39
Karen_mI have a ubuntu machine, where my WDTV *cannot* see the videos.  It says "no media in folder".  Yet I can see the windows 7 shares without fail, anyone know what I am doing wrong?13:40
kushal3sor4you: what kind of graphics card do you have?13:41
sor4youor is there some better distro i can run on my laptop?13:41
CodeGnome2midhuno: Have you checked to see if your graphics card is fully supported?13:41
tawansor4you: 11.04 will be like netbook by default, it will be awesome on your netbook13:41
CodeGnome2sor4you: Install 10.10...whatever edition suits yuou best.13:41
sor4youwhat is the last stable edition they put out?13:42
ajinhey, guys13:42
FishFacephoenixsampras: You could always try the Beta version if you want. That might help you.13:42
midhuno<CodeGnome2>ther is no driver installed...my graphic card is SIS M67213:42
BlouBlousor4you: maverick, but natty will be released in 12 days13:42
sor4youand you run maverick?13:42
CodeGnome2Karen_m: How are you sharing the folder?13:42
* tawan points sor4you to the ubuntu website where all of these answers are in plain sight13:42
BlouBlou!download | sor4you13:43

QuiSEIm looking for some assistens in update my WIFI-DRIVERS. (got the drivers and a guide already)13:43
ghustafhello, how can i save files from a damage hard disk with their original names ans location?13:44
CodeGnome2midhuno: SIS is an on-chip GPU. Doesn't do accelerated anything, generally. It may simply not support the features you want. Check the xorg and smplayer web sites to see whether your chipset can do anything better with alternative settings.13:44
BlouBloughustaf: Copy&Paste?13:45
CodeGnome2ghustaf: You probably can't, but try mounting your drive read-only and using ddrescue to salvage whatever you can.13:45
QuiSEis there a permanent solution for the "left mouse button problem" in ubuntu 10.10 yet? I tried a couple and they aint working for me13:45
ghustafi can't mount the hard disk. i created an image with dd_rescue but can't mount it either13:45
Karen_mCodeGnome2, I setup samba, all computers can load it, but not WDTV13:46
Karen_mbut WDTV can load the win7 shares, so i don't know if there is a compatibility flag somewhere or something?13:46
brontosaurusrexQuiSE, what problem?13:46
midhuno <CodeGnome2>i installed a driver when i was using ubuntu 10.10...that works great for me...but now i am using 11.04 in which that driver not works13:47
CodeGnome2Karen_m: Have you looked at your samba logs? If everything else can access it, it sounds like a permissions problem.13:47
QuiSEbrontosaurusrex: Mouse buttons stop working but you can move the mouse, working inside X13:47
Karen_mI will have to try the samba logs, it just sucks cause everyhting else works..13:47
CodeGnome2ghustaf: You may just be out of luck. I've lost a few drives that way over the years, too. Check out the Coroner's Toolkit. There may be something there that can help you extract from an invalid filesystem.13:48
sor4youdoes anyone know about compiz on here?13:48
tawansor4you: like what about it?13:48
ghustafok, i'll try13:49
sor4youtawan: are you running compiz on your system/13:49
CodeGnome2Karen_m: I imagine. But if the Windows systems see the share, then it's probably something specific to do with whatever your WDTV is doing.13:49
DaLynXikonia: the hardware support list only lists complete computers. I would need a per-item list, is there such a thing ?13:49
patterni'm trying to stop the sshd running on my machine, so i tried typing (as root) "/etc/init.d/sshd stop" which reports "* Stopping OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd   [ OK ]"13:49

Karen_mi will find out where samba logs and try debugging it, thank you13:49
tawansor4you: yes13:49
patternerr.. i meant "/etc/init.d/ssh stop"13:49
sor4youtawan: are you running a desktop or a laptop?13:50
tawansor4you: old laptop13:50
tawansor4you: and my wife has it on an eee13:50
CodeGnome2pattern: There may still be some ocnnected sessions. Try 'sudo pkill sshd' instead.13:50
sor4youtawan: and you are able to do like the cube and the sphere of windows on that old laptop?13:51
patternCodeGnome2: if i do that sshd just respawns13:51
sor4youtawan: and is your system response fast and reliable, stable and efficient?13:51
tawansor4you: no problems, I think if you can run XP then Linux with Compiz will run nicer and quicker on the same machine13:51
CodeGnome2pattern: You aren't doing something normal, then. Is ssh running from init?13:52
sor4youtawan: as far as learning source code do you know how and where did you learn?13:52
pokoko222guys i have a c++ program in netbeans and when i run it, it gives me permission errors, it cant access the  project folder13:52

CodeGnome2pattern: fgrep ssh /etc/inittab13:53
pokoko222CodeGnome2 the wierd thing is i cant change the file permissions with right click and permissions13:53

NyberMi1CodeGnome2: someone said my swap might be too small so im now running a 20gb swap for the fun of it, the system sports 6gb of ram14:02
Karen_mbrontosaurusrex, many thanks! I think it will work now.. yay!!!14:02
NyberMi1same problem persists14:02
midhuno<brontosaurusrex>it is playing but when opening in smplayer only audio is playing14:02
ikoniaNyberMi1: 20GB of swap is silly14:02
NyberMi1ikonia: im aware of that14:03
ikoniaNyberMi1: then why are you doing it ? it's not going to do anything positive14:03
brontosaurusrexmidhuno, so 'mplayer file.mp4' is working as expected, but only audio in smplayer?14:03
NyberMi1ikonia: having 3tb to play around with, i thought it wouldn't really matter14:03
CodeGnome2pokoko222: This is where? Your home directory?14:03
QuiSEI could use some assistance in upgrading my WIFI-DRIVERS (Already have the drivers downloaded)14:03

PikosI've got a problem, I cannot figure how to connect both wireless and ethernet interfaces at the same time14:04
CodeGnome2NyberMi1: I have a new i7 laptop that won't suspend or hibernate, either. It might be a hardware issue.14:04
pokoko222CodeGnome2 the project folder is on desktop, yeah in my home i am the only user14:04
NyberMi1CodeGnome2: my desktop has a i7 cpu14:04
Pikoswhen I connect one, it deconnects the other one14:04
NyberMi1this i5 laptop that im currently using suspends fine though14:04
pokoko222CodeGnome2 this is the error in Netbeans: exec: 7: /home/stefan/Desktop/Missionaries_Canibals/dist/Debug/GNU-Linux-x86/missionaries_canibals: Permission denied14:04
brontosaurusrexmidhuno, ok, then i would try to change the video output settings in smplayer, also anything that is vdpau related maybe14:05
CodeGnome2pokoko222: ls -l /home/stefan/Desktop/Missionaries_Canibals/dist/Debug/GNU-Linux-x86/missionaries_canibals14:05
NyberMi1ikonia: silly or not, i can't see how it matters since the earlier "non-silly" amount of swap had the same effect of suspend not working. i just thought id go high while partitioning to make sure the system had enough space there14:06
patternhow can i configure which services from /etc/init.d to start upon boot?14:06
ikoniaNyberMi1: depends how that silly decision will effect the rest of your system14:06

minashokryxangua, yes14:08
brontosaurusrexmidhuno, when running mplayer from cli, note what video output drivers is using and put that into smplayer config14:08
NyberMi1ikonia: im not turning down tips and welcome any feedback, but can you think of any reason why the larger amount would be a problem?14:08
ikoniaNyberMi1: miss-representation of ram,14:09
CodeGnome2pokoko222: You could try adding them: chmod g+rwx <folder>14:09
pokoko222CodeGnome2 yeah the wierd thing is i cant change it from gui, so i moved now the folder from D partition to desktop and now i can everythig fine14:09
pokoko222does that mean something wrong with my d partition14:09
adrian_kxwhy after in update to kernel 2.6.38 from mavrick ppa my battery doesnt indicate estimated time to charge or discharge14:09
ikoniaNyberMi1: a lot of suspend / hibernation problems are down to the video card chipset, I'd look in that area14:09
ikoniaadrian_kx: you're on an unsupported kernel, contact the support group for that PPA14:09
NyberMi1ikonia: im receiving similar suggestions from debian.fi channel atm14:09
brontosaurusrexmidhuno, on the long run, learn how to use mplayer, its really faster and more usefull than any GUI if you know some basics14:09
xanguaadrian_kx: you use ppa's under your own risk14:10
adrian_kxwell on other distros if u update kernel doesnt mess up with ur indicators14:10
adrian_kxso i`m bound to dam stock kernel?14:10
volvehey all, I'm trying to get the a minimal set of X packages installed on my headless Jaunty server so I can run gui apps over ssh. Are there any specialized packages for that? When I try to install the standard Xorg packages it wants to pull down loads and loads of video drivers, which obviously I don't need as the server is going to be headless. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks. :)14:10
ikoniaadrian_kx: it would if you use an unsupported kernel14:10
CodeGnome2pokoko222: No,m it means you have a permissions problem.14:10
adrian_kxwhat if i compile it myself?14:10
